The focus of this week will be immigration. Use these words to talk to your co-workers, classmates, or new friends about this topic! Having conversations in English may be scary at first, but it is a great way to practice your English and get to know people better.
1. Watch the video:
2. Read the text
One day, all of a sudden, the bombing started [in our neighborhood].
We tried to cross the border three times, but each time were turned back.
I’d come back and cry. I sat there for three days crying without food and water.

We’ve sent your application for resettlement to the U.S.
3. Take the quiz
Don’t be shy and practice saying these words and phrases to yourself, first. If you are meeting someone for the first time, introduce yourself.
This topic is only a suggestion. If talking to someone about immigration is hard to do, talk about something that is important to you or about something that interests you! It’s always easier to talk about something you are passionate about! Once the conversation is flowing, you’ll be surprised how much you have in common with people from different walks of life!
