- Honey, I'm home!
- Hello there ! Why the big smile?
- Well, you'll be smiling too when I tell you what I've got!
- What is this? Car keys? Don't tell me you've got a new car!
- I have! A brand-new BMW!
- What? Have you completely lost your mind?
- I haven't! Listen...
- This is insane! We can't afford a new car! We have bills to pay! We
have a mortgage! We have three young children!
- Just listen, will you? I'll explain!
- You’d better explain!
- I’ve been promoted! And they've given me a huge pay rise! And a
company car! We can even afford a bigger house now!

2 INTERVIEW
 

 

 

 


Interviewer So, how long have you been living here?
Karen For about six months now.
I. Why did you choose Beirut?
K. Because Mike - my husband - and I have always loved Arab culture
and the language, Mike's an English teacher and he got a job here in a
language school.
I. Why did you want to take a year off?
K. Basically I wanted a break from teaching. I love teaching children
but I needed a change. Also I've been drawing and painting since I was
little but I've never really had the chance to study drawing. So this
seemed like the perfect opportunity to have a change and learn to draw
properly.
I. What have you been doing here since you arrived?
K. Well, I found a fantastic art teacher, called Omayma, and I've been
having classes with her since October. She's great and she speaks
English, which is lucky because I don't know much Arabic yet. But I am
learning the language as quickly as I can.
I. Is Arabic a difficult language to learn?
K. Incredibly difficult! Especially the pronunciation. You have to
learn to make a lot of new sounds. Also it takes a long time to learn
to read and write in Arabic.
I. You also teach belly dancing here.
K. That's right.
I. How did that happen?
K. Well, I've been teaching belly dancing for about six years, and I
love it, so I wanted to continue doing it here. A lot of Lebanese
women don't know how to belly dance and they want to learn, I give
classes here, in my living room. We have a lot of fun!
I. Are your students surprised that an English person is teaching them
belly dancing?
K. Yes, very, but they're also really happy to find that a foreigner
loves Arabic music and understands something from their culture.
I. What's the best thing about living to Lebanon so far?
K. The people. The hospitality of the people here is absolutely amazing.

3. SONG
 

 

 

 


Every day in the morning on her way to the office
You can see as she catches a train
Just a face among a million faces
Just another woman with no name
Not the girl you'd remember but she's still something special
If you knew her I am sure you'd agree
'Cause I know she's got a little secret
Friday evening she turns out to be...

Nina, pretty ballerina
Now she is the queen of the dancing floor
This is the moment she's waited for
Just like Cinderella
(just like Cinderella)
Nina, pretty ballerina
Who would ever think she could be this way
This is the part that she likes to play
But she knows the fun would go away
If she would play it every day

So she's back every morning to her work at the office
And another week to live in a dream
And another row of early mornings
In an almost never-ending stream
Doesn't talk very often, kind of shy and uncertain
Everybody seems to think she's a bore
But they wouldn't know her little secret
What her Friday night would have in store...

Nina, pretty ballerina
Now she is the queen of the dancing floor
This is the moment she's waited for
Just like Cinderella
(just like Cinderella)
Nina, pretty ballerina
Who would ever think she could be this way
This is the part that she likes to play
She would like to play it every day

Nina, pretty ballerina
Now she is the queen of the dancing floor
This is the moment she's waited for
Just like Cinderella
(just like Cinderella)
Nina, pretty ballerina
Who would ever think she could be this way
This is the part that she likes to play

Abba - Nina pretty ballerina
