I = Interviewer, R = Rima

  So Rima, did you find a job as an au pair?

R   Well, I found a job, but not looking after children. I’m working in a restaurant – an Italian restaurant. I’m a waitress. I work very long hours!

  Was it difficult to find a job?

R   No. There are lots of jobs in restaurants, hotels, cleaning, things like that.

  Are you still living in your friend’s flat?

R   Yes, because it’s very expensive here and I can’t afford to rent my own flat. London is incredibly expensive!

  Your English is much better!

R   Well, a bit better, but I don’t go to classes, because I don’t have time. As I said, I work very long hours in the restaurant. But I watch a lot of English TV, and I speak English at work.

  When are you going back to Lithuania?

R   I don’t know. My plans have changed a bit.


R   Well, I met someone in the restaurant. He’s the chef. We’re getting married next month.

  Congratulations! Is he from Lithuania too?

R   No, he’s Italian. From Naples. He’s a fantastic cook.

  So, are you going to stay in London?

R   Yes. I’m very happy here now. We both really like London – our dream is to open a restaurant together one day.

  Are your family coming to the wedding?

R   No! They don’t even know I’m getting married! You see, they want me to go back to Lithuania.

  Well, good luck with everything, Rima.
