10 English J1 - Sehr 20 EXAM 1: Multicultural Britain Name: Jacqueline Credits: 28 /35 Grade: As the bus pulled into her bus stop, Miriam glanced quickly at her watch. They were coming! And she was very late. She hurriedly waved goodbye to her friends as she stepped off the bus. She pulled her jacket close to her body, becoming suddenly very self- conscious about her jean-clad2 legs and the short vest³ she wore beneath her leather jacket. It had, unfortunately, shrunk in the wash. All day she had kept pulling it down to cover her midriff. Strange, but she felt odd in her clothing now as she was coming home. Yet they were just the type of clothes she had needed to wear today - for hill walking in the 15 Peak District. Somehow here, in her neighbourhood, however, she felt different. As she walked down the street to her home, she was very conscious of her appearance and hoped that she would not meet anyone she knew. She tugged at the hemline of her vest once more and held her jacket closed with her other hand as the jacket had no buttons. Her eye on her watch she hastened her pace. It was much later than she had thought. She remembered the phone call of yesterday...

evening. They said they were coming today. What if they had already arrived? She glanced down at her jeans again. As soon as she got home she must discretely make her way to her room and quickly get changed. 2019/2020 (12) 109.61 Well done! Sch Good Luck Part I: Reading Comprehension A Pair of Jeans Miriam is the daughter of Pakistani immigrants and lives in Manchester with her family. She is engaged to Farook, also a second generation Pakistani. His very traditional parents are about to visit Miriam and her family in order to strengthen the ties between the two families before their children's wedding and in order to see if Miriam really is a good future wife for their son. On the day of their visit Miriam takes a trip in the morning with some friends from university to go hiking in the Peak District which she is just coming back from. Just as Miriam reached the gate of her house, she heard a car pull up behind her. 25 Nervously she turned round to see who it was. Spotting the colour of the car and the person behind the wheel her step faltered colour ebbing from her face. She turned back to the gate and tried to collect her wits about her. Too late! They were already here. Her heart was now rocking madly against her chest and the clothes burnt her. She wanted to quickly rush into her home and peel them off. midriff part of the body between the chest and the waist hemline dt. Saum 6 to falter to become weak and less confident 7 to ebb out of to become less to become self-conscious = to feel uncomfortable and embarrassed about your own behaviour 2 jean-clad = covered by jeans, dressed in jeans vest shirt without sleeves English J1 - Sehr 30 She braced her shoulders. She couldn't run inside. That was not the way things were done, no matter what the circumstances. She calmly let go of the gate and turned round to greet the two people who had by now stepped out of the car and were surveying her. She didn't realize that she had let go of her jacket. It fell wide open, revealing the short vest underneath. Their eyes fell straight to the inch of her waist flesh. The woman was her 35 future mother-in-law, a slightly frail woman dressed in shalwar and meze with a chadar around her shoulders. The elderly man behind the wheel earlier, was the woman's husband. He seemed to tower behind his wife. 2019/2020 10 Miriam found herself unable to look either in the eye. A watery, hesitant smile played around her mouth. She didn't know what to do, or how to act. Her cheeks burnt in 40 embarrassment. And yet these were the very people she wanted to impress. All she was aware of were the surreptitious ¹0 glances they darted at her. In fact not at her as Miriam, but at the figure, the appearance she presented clad in a pair of Levis and an inadequate leather jacket to top it up. This was not the Miriam they knew, but a stranger, a western version of Miriam. She immediately sensed their awkwardness. They too were caught off 45 guard and did not know what to do with themselves in particular with their eyes. The father-in-law was avoiding eye contact with her by carefully looking above her head. Then he pushed the gate open and walked up to the door to ring the bell. Miriam's mother, Fatima, opened the door to her expected guests, beaming in pleasure and warmth to welcome them. She had not expected Miriam to come with them, 50 however. When she saw her daughter slipping in the house behind the two guests, Fatima received a shock. Never before in her life had Miriam glimpsed such a dramatic change in her mother's face. (Normally Fatima wouldn't have batted an eyelid if her daughter had turned up at her door at 11 o'clock at night as long as she knew where she was and with whom and at what time she was returning home. Today, however, she was viewing her 55 daughter's arrival and appearance through different eyes the view just didn't look very good. - In one glance she took in her daughter's appearance. The jeans which wouldn't have normally aroused her interest, today stood out on Miriam's body. Fatima couldn't quite make herself understand why she felt ashamed of her daughter's clothing and why 60 she was suddenly angry with her. Her eyes noticed Miriam's midriff showing through. An inch of her daughter's flesh was visible! Fatima communicated her displeasure by signalling wildly with her eyebrows to her daughter to go up and change into something more respectable. Miriam understood and was only too glad to obey.
