Past Continuous: I Went Back to My Country
Bernice uses the past continuous to tell her story of how she came to live in the United States of America and her visit home to Honduras after 5 long years. I WAS AN ILLEGAL immigrant
PERSON AT in THE USA. I GOT MARRIED WITH an American CITIZEN PERSON FROM THIS COUNTRY, SO I GOT MY PAPERS THROUGh HIM. I HAD went 5 YEARS WITHOUT VISITING MY COUNTRY HONDURAS but I WAS THERE LAST YEAR AND IT WAS AMAZING.
I SAW MY MOTHER, MY BROTHER AND MY FAMILY. I WAS REALLY HAPPY. I
SPENDED spent TWO WEEKS WITH THEM and I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SAW see MY OLD FRIENDS AND HAV INGe FUN WITH THEM. IT IS TOO so DIFFICULT TO WAIT FOR SO MANY YEARS WITHOUT SEEing YOUR FAMILY OR FRIENDS; especially WHEN YOU ARE ILLEGAL IN A COUNTRY illegally. It IS LIKE TO BE being IN A JAIL.
What I enjoyed
THAT I ENJOYED
TO SEE seeing
MY MOTHER AGAIN. I HAD MANY PLANS BEFORE arriving
WHEN I GOT THERE,
I DID NOT DO ANYTHING. I
HOLE TIME AT MY HOME BECAUSE, my entire
THERE EVERY DAY AFTER
THEIR JOBS work
. WE spent
THE TIME TALKING, LAUGHING AND EATING. CAN YOU IMAGING EATing
FOOD FROM YOUR COUNTRY, after 5 years without it?
IT IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, EVEN WHEN YOU TRY TO COOK IN THE SAME WAY in a different place
. WHAT I ENJOYED THE MOST WAS MY COUNTRY's
FOOD. THAT'S WHY I
GOT LIKE gained
THE REASON OF THIS
, IT IS TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE MOST WONDERFUL THING
THIS WORLD IS FAMILY. LOVE YOUR PARENTS, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR TRUE FRIENDS.
Bernice, thank-you for your assignment submission. You wrote a very good story. I must have been very difficult for you not to see your family for 5 years. I live in Spain, my family is in Canada, but I go home once or twice a year. That is hard enough.
One request: In the future please write in lower case not CAPS, it is easier to read and edit if your work is in lower case. Thanks Bernice! Move onto the next assignment.
