Solving Problems / Решая проблемы
Read Решая проблемы You are a middle-aged foreign couple living in the United States. You came here to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, one year ago to escape from political problems in your country. You (the husband) have a permanent visa to stay in the United States, but you (the wife) only have a temporary visa, which expired last month. You (the wife) have applied for a permanent visa, but you have not received it yet. You (the wife) are now in the United States illegally.
During the last year, both of you have worked in part-time jobs. You got these jobs because of the agency that was sponsoring you (the agency stopped sponsoring you two months ago). At first, life was exciting; but now you are beginning to have many problems. How can you solve them?
Decide and Write Problem 1: Your (the wife’s) visa
You are now in the United States illegally, because your visa has expired. The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) says it will take at least five months to process your application for a new visa. You are very afraid that INS will send you back to your country. What can you do?

Recommendation:
____________________________________________________________

Problem 2: Poor condition of the apartment
At first, your apartment looked very good. Now you have problems with the toilet in the bathroom, the heater throughout the apartment, and the refrigerator (which came with the apartment). The manager of the apartments says that these are your problems. You really like the apartment’s location, and you don’t want to move. What can you do?

Recommendation:
____________________________________________________________

Problem 3: Rent
The landlord has been increasing your rent every two months. Six months ago your rent was $495 a month; now it is $645 a month. What can you do?

Recommendation:
____________________________________________________________

Problem 4: No health insurance
You cannot afford private health insurance, and neither of you gets health insurance with your jobs. You are getting older, and you are very worried about what will happen if you get sick. What can you do?

Recommendation:
____________________________________________________________

Problem 5: Homesickness
You are happy you came to the United States, but you miss your country very much. You have little opportunity to talk to your family and friends back there. Americans don’t seem very friendly to you, and sometimes the whole situation makes you depressed.

Recommendation:
____________________________________________________________
Extend 1. Is it more difficult to immigrate to a country when you are young, middle-aged, or old?

2. In general, do you find it easy or difficult to solve problems in the United States?

3. What is your opinion of Americans? Are they friendly? cold? happy? lazy? Explain with examples.

4. Write a composition about the biggest problem (or problems) you have had in the United States. (If you have never been to the United States, what is the biggest problem you think you would have?)
