Unit 5: Country of Origin



A: Jean, could you help me?

B: Sure, Marie. What do you need?

A: Oh, it's this registration form I have to fill out for school; there's a line that I don't know what to do with.

B: Which one?

A: Where it says "Country of Origin." I was born in France, but when I was a baby we moved to California. That's where I lived until I went to university.

B: Your mother's an American citizen, right?

A: Yes, she is. She was born and raised in Texas.

B: And you have a U.S. Passport?

A: Yes, I do.

B: Well, then, don't worry about that part. It's only for people who aren't American citizens.

A: Thanks, that's everything; I'm finished! All I need now is a stamp and an envelope.
