  • Abstract

    Aimee talks with her 9-year-old twin girls about their new life in Scotland after gaining refugee status and leaving the Ivory Coast. They talk about being reunited after Aimee was separated from the girls for five years. Anne and Anielle discuss starting at primary school in Glasgow and how language was a big challenge. Their teacher helped a lot and they also found themselves excelling in maths and PE because neither subject needed language. Their new friends love to hear them speak French and coincidentally it's the language their classmates are currently learning.

  • Description

    The Listening Project conversations collectively form a picture of our lives and relationships today. Recordings were made by BBC producers of people sharing an intimate conversation, lasting up to an hour and on a topic of the speakers' choice.
