Q.:- 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.

 

Answer:-

The potato crop has failed in Ireland last year and I was reduced to poverty.There was no food available to eat and I also had no money. As it is, the cities are very crowded and many diseases are prevalent. Also, we Catholics were prosecuted by the Englishmen, who were mostly protestant. 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 I am earning my living as an agricultural labourer on a very big wheat farm.I get a regular salary and am very happy that I left Ireland.
