I Got My Citizenship

The cover of the lesson

Taro finally got his Canadian citizenship. He talks about it with Amy, his old friend. Listen to the conversation, and discuss immigration and citizenship with the AI Tutor.

I Got My Citizenship

(1) Taro: Listen
Hey, Amy! It's me, Taro. Long time no see!
(2) Amy: Listen
Taro... Sorry, I don't remember.
(3) Taro: Listen
We used to go to the same chess club several years ago when I just came to Canada. "Pinehurst Street Chess Club", I think.
(4) Amy: Listen
Oh, Taro! Yes, I remember. How have you been?
(5) Taro: Listen
I'm doing alright. How about you?
(6) Amy: Listen
I'm very well. I remember you barely spoke any English. Now, you are [vocab word=fluent]fluent[/vocab]!
(7) Taro: Listen
Thanks. But I still have a lot to learn. I finally got my Canadian [vocab word=citizenship]citizenship[/vocab], though.
(8) Amy: Listen
Congratulations! That's a [vocab word=tremendous]tremendous[/vocab] [vocab word=accomplishment]accomplishment[/vocab]!
(9) Taro: Listen
Thank you!
(10) Amy: Listen
What did you have to do to earn the citizenship?
(11) Taro: Listen
Well, before I came to Canada, I had to [vocab word=apply]apply[/vocab] for [vocab word=permanent resident]permanent resident[/vocab] status. After I came here, I had to study English and pass the citizenship test.
(12) Amy: Listen
Was the citizenship test hard?
(13) Taro: Listen
No, not really. It was about your rights and responsibilities as a Canadian citizen. I lived here for 5 years, so I was familiar with the Canadian [vocab word=law]law[/vocab] and citizenship rights already.
(14) Amy: Listen
That's impressive. What was your main reason for coming to Canada? Was it the weather?
(15) Taro: Listen
Well, not really. I just can't get used to the Canadian winter!
(16) Amy: Listen
Oh. Was it the environment, the national parks, and many places to [vocab word=camp]camp[/vocab] and bike?
(17) Taro: Listen
I love [vocab word=hike]hiking[/vocab] and camping, and I love the large conservation areas in Canada. But, that's not the main reason.
(18) Amy: Listen
Oh. Was it the [vocab word=multiculturalism]multiculturalism[/vocab] and our [vocab word=diverse]diverse[/vocab] population?
(19) Taro: Listen
There are many people from different countries, and I can enjoy different cultural events and cuisines. But, that's not the main reason.
(20) Amy: Listen
So, what was the main reason?
(21) Taro: Listen
My main reason was the Canadian [vocab word=maple syrup]maple syrup[/vocab] and Canadian bacon! I gained 40 kilos since coming to Canada. Can you believe I used to run tracks? Nowadays, I'd be lucky to run from my kitchen to the living room without tripping over!
