As mentioned last week, we are going to move on from studying abroad and volunteering to working abroad.
Today we will look at migrant workers, mostly through listening to accounts found on E2 – which is Gyldendal’s resource for international English.
You will work with some questions based on these accounts, before moving on to reading an excerpt from Zadie Smith’s short story “The Embassy of Cambodia.” You will get the excerpt as a handout, but if you are interesting in reading the entire story, you can find it here.
After having read the excerpt, I want you to write a blog post discussing Fatou’s story and comparing it to the statistical information you will also be given in class.
Publish your blog post at the end of class today.
