BBC 6 minute English- Homesickness (listen & read)
This is 6 minute English from BBC Learning English dot com.
Jennifer:        Hello and welcome to 6 minute English from BBC Learning English. I’m Jennifer and I’m joined by Finn.
Finn:              Hello Jen. In this Program, we are going to talk about homesickness. That’s the feeling that you get when you are away from home and miss it. You feel sad because you want to be there. Do you have get homesick Jen?
Jennifer:        oh yes, I live in London now, but I was born in the Northeast of English, which is three hour train journey away. Sometime I wish I can go back home and see my family. How about you?
Finn:              I have feel homesick when I spent time in other countries. It is actually very common and a lot of people   suffer from it
Jennifer:        we talk soon about some tips that you can use to combat, or overcome homesickness, but first, a quiz question
Finn:              OK. I’m ready
Jennifer:        what percentage of student experience homesickness in their early day at university?
A)     50%, B)60% or C) 70%
Finn:              I’m going to say B)60%
Jennifer:        well, we will find out if you right at the end of the program. so, if you are homesick, how does it feel?
Finn:              well, I think you can often feel very lonely especially when you move to a foreign country with language is different to yours. You can feel quite isolated - Feeling that you are on your own with no one to help.
Jennifer:        that is true. It is often very difficult when you don’t know many people. It is stressful. It can be hard to make friends. And you will often think about your friends and family back at home.
Finn:              you could say that you fine for your home. That mean you are really want to go back and see some familiar face or people you know.
Jennifer:        I miss my friends and my family lots. But when I am feeling homesick I also miss places, sound and smell.
Finn:              you might see a picture of your hometown, which can make you a bit sad, because you are not there.
Jennifer:        Food is something else that I long for, I want it very much, when I am away from home. There are a lot of regional foods which you cannot get in London. But the thing I miss the most it is my mum’s home cooking. If I smell something that reminds me of home I feel extremely homesick.
Finn:              uh, you are starting to make me feel homesick now. Nowadays lots of people live, work or study away from home. People travel     all over the world. And homesickness is growing problem.
Jennifer:        lots of people will experience mild homesickness, so they feel a little sad but they can deal with it. Other people have more extreme homesickness.
Finn:              they might experience panic attacks or nightmare
Jennifer:        and some people withdraw from society altogether. That mean they don’t go out or interact with anyone.      
Finn:              some people think that if you feel that homesick, you should just go home, but often it is not as easy as that. Especially if you are studying or working somewhere
Jennifer:        uhm , they are ways to make it better though. Modern technology has helped a lot of people to stay in touch with their      families by using video calling software such as Skype or FaceTime
Finn:              and that is a good idea because of actually seeing someone talk to you is much better than just hearing them on the phone. Social media also help people to communicate with the people they left behind
Jennifer:        Another good idea is meet up with expat communities. That way you could make new friends who speak your language. That can take the pressure off a little bit.
Finn:              it can …but it is also good to mix with locals in a new town or city. In my opinion, that’s the best way to stop feeling so isolated when you are in different place.
Jennifer:        if you are really struggling or having a hard time, you could try talking to doctor or professional to get some advice, or even a good friend. Sometime even acknowledging or realizing that you are homesick can be the first step to feeling better.
Finn:              I hope that our listener aren’t suffering from homesickness – but we need to find out the answer to the quiz question that Jennifer set earlier
Jennifer:        I asked what percentage of students typically suffer from homesickness when they start university?  
Was it:           a) 50%, b)60% or C) 70%
Finn:              well, I sad b)60%
Jennifer:        and you were wrong, I’m afraid. It’s eventy percent percent of all students feel homesick when they begin university.
Finn:              so it’s very common and completely normal to feel a little bit sad when you are in new situation
Jennifer:        Now, Finn, we are almost out of time, so could you remind us of the words we have heard today?
