Imagine that you are an agricultural worker, who has arrived in America from Ireland. Write a paragraph on why you chose to come and how you are earning your living.
Ans. The potato crop has failed in Ireland last year and I was reduced to poverty. There was no food to eat and I also had no money. The cities were very crowded and many diseases were prevalent. "
Also, we Catholics were persecuted by the Englishmen, who were mostly protestants. The English tried to dominate us by imposing the English language on us. That is why, I decided to leave Ireland and emigrate to America, where I was sure, I will have a better future. Here, l am earning my living as an agricultural labourer in a very big wheat farm. I get regular salary and I am very happy that I left Ireland.
