Changing their Skies


4)In the story Leaving what do you think will happen to Aloo in America? Here are three letters- one from Aloo to his mother, and two different replies from his mother. Use these words to complete all the letters.
Dear Mother,
After five years, I have at last finished my studies. My exams went well and I came top in my class! I know I promised to come home when I finished, but a big hospital here offered me a job. I will learn a lot working in an American hospital, so I must stay here for a few more years. And there's another thing. I know you won't like this, but I have met a girl. She's lovely! She has red hair and green eyes, and she comes from Ireland. Her name is Jacky. We want to get married next year. Please try to understand, Mother. I have to live my own life. Love to all my brothers and sisters, and to you. Aloo

Dear Aloo, you have broken my heart. You promised me that you would come home, and that you would not marry a white woman. I will never speak to you again. Mother

Dear Aloo, top in your class, and a job in a hospital - that's wonderful! And I'm so pleased you've met a nice girl. Jacky sounds very beautiful. Why don't you bring her here for a little holiday? We'd love to meet her. All my love, Mother
Dear Jim-san
