ELLIS ISLAND : COMPREHENSION

ORALE A2

SCRIPT DE L’ENREGISTREMENT

Mary : Why did you bring me here grandpa ? Where are we ?

Grandpa : We’re on Ellis Island. This is where many immigrants arrived when they wanted to live in America. My father, your great-grandfather, came here in 1904. I want to tell you his story.

Look at the Statue of Liberty over there, Mary ! It was the first thing your ancestor saw when he arrived in New York Harbour.

M : Where did your father come from ?

G : He came from Ireland. He was very poor and he thought that he would have a better life in America. This is the American Dream. Come on, let’s go inside!

G : The immigrants arrived here in the Great Hall and they were examined by doctors upstairs.

M : What happened after that ?

G : They had to answer 29 questions in 2 minutes ! A lot of immigrants didn’t understand anything . They were all frightened, very tired and worried.

M : Look at that big wall over there ! Let’s go and have a look at it !

G : This is the Wall of Honor. All the names that are written on it are immigrants’ names. Look for your ancestor’s name !

M : Oh ! Here it is !
