Rob: Hello, I’m Rob and this is 6 Minute English and I’m joined this week by Jennifer. Hello Jennifer.
Jennifer: Hello Rob.
Rob: This week we’re discussing global migration – that’s the movement of people around the world and particularly those who are moving abroad to look for new work. Is this something you have done Jen?
Jennifer: Yes, when I was a student I moved to France to teach English for a while.
Rob: A very good job but luckily for us, you came back to live in the UK. Many people are forced to emigrate – or leave their home country – to go and work abroad and they never return home. We’ll talk more about that shortly and also look at some of the language associated with migration. But let’s start with today’s question.
Jennifer: And this is a question for me to answer?
Rob: Of course it is! So, according to figures from the United Nations, which one of these countries has the largest number of immigrants as a percentage of its national population? Is it:
a) United States of America
Jennifer: I think this is an easy one. I think it will be a) The United States of America.
Rob: Well, I’ll let you know the answer at the end of the programme. Now let’s talk more about global migration. It’s something the BBC has been looking at following research by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). We know people move from country to country for all kinds of reasons – to join other members of their family, because of war in their own country, or just to find a better lifestyle.
