LISTENING TEXT WHO ARE BRITISH CITIZENS? Liu Lei (LL) is talking with Sarah (S) about British people. LL: Sarah, did you say that Britain is a multicultural country?
S: Yes, I did. We have people from different cultures and countries. LL: I dont quite understand. If they come from different cultures and countries, how do you know that theyre British? S: Well, there are three different groups of British citizens. Let me tell you about the first group.
A long time ago Britain ruled many countries. When these countries became independent, their people were given a choice. They could either become British citizens or remain in their own country. LL: Now let me see if Ive got it right. Did you say that they had to choose which country to belong to?
S: Yes, and many chose to remain in their own country, but some wanted to be British and came to Britain. LL: I see. So thats the first group. Part 2 LL: So what about the second and third groups?
S: Well, the second groups easy. Theyre people with British parents or who were born in Britain. This is the largest number of British citizens. LL: And the third group?
S: They come from other countries. But if a person lives and works in Britain for five years they can become a British citizen. LL: I see. What if you have black skin?
S: It doesnt matter what colour your skin is! Many black people came from the Caribbean, India or Pakistan to set up small businesses. Theyre all British now. LL: Have they contributed to British culture?
S: Oh yes, with their music and food, of course! Weve a new national dish from India called chicken tikka masala. It is now more popular than our traditional national dish of fish and chips. So you can see how truly multicultural we are!
