flag.jpgListen to a prisoner talking about himself and check your answers to Exercise A.
Well, umm ...my name's Carl, although some of my friends call me Tiny, and I'm thirty-eight years old. How time flies, eh? Seems like only yesterday I was eighteen. I live in London - well, I'm from London. I was born there and, er ..., grew up there. I don't live there now. I've been in prison for the past two years, and I've got another two years until I get out. There are three of us in my family - me, my wife, and my daughter, Liz. Liz goes to primary school at the moment. Anyway, when I lost my job - I'm an accountant - we didn't have enough money, even though my wife also works as a secretary - so I decided to - don't laugh! - rob a bank. It was the worst decision I've ever made! I can't believe I was so stupid! I hate it in prison - I can't wait to get out. I work in the kitchen, um, so I have to get up at four o'clock in the morning to make breakfast. The rest of the time I just sit in my cell. I like reading, which is good, since I'm on my own a lot here! When I get out in two years' time, I'm going to try to find a job. And I'll tell you something - I'll never commit another crime again!
