"aha!" they both exclaimed. "you are from iraq!" tara smiled and said yes. then she apologized to both of them for lying the day before. she explained that she had not wanted to get into an arabic conversation with them. it had been her experience that many esl students continued to speak their native language in esl class, and tara had not come to esl class to practice her arabic. in her opinion, esl students should try to speak english only.
"i agree," said rose.
"you're 100 percent right," agreed jennifer. "rose and i must stop speaking arabic to each other. right, rose?" rose nodded, and then said something in arabic. all three women laughed.
