Amy explains the many variations of English that she had been exposed to and still uses. She points out even though her mother, Mrs. Tan, uses the "broken" version of English, Amy still understands her mother. I agree because Amy never stated she had any
Summary of "Mother Tongue" by Amy Tan In "Mother Tongue, Amy Tan writes about how her mother 's broken English affects her life. She begins this narrative essay by talking about the day she became aware of the different forms of English that she was using at home and during formal events. Amy says, "The talk was going along well enough, until I remembered one major difference that made the whole talk sound wrong. My mother was in the room. And it was perhaps the first time she had heard me give a lengthy speech, using the kind of English I have never used with her" (Tan 1).
My “patience room studying” continued for another ten minutes before a nurse came out of the room calling my name. My father put down the newspaper he was reading and pointed to me and she managed to spot us from the large crowd that was present, we got up and followed her and she directed us to a room with a plaque posted front and centre on the door, reading “Dr. Hoffman, Neurology” .

Five minutes passed and then a woman quickly walked in and closed the door behind her.
Same goes for ‘Miss’, which is hanim in Turkish. In the travel guide that I read, it says to address a professional by his occupational title only whether it is a guy or a girl. For example, for a male doctor or lawyer, the proper terminology would be to only say Doktor or Avukat but if it were a lady, the word Bayan (Female) would be added before the occupation. For example, Bayan Doktor or Bayan Avukat. In conclusion, my stay in Istanbul was a very new and informative experience.

My clothes are folded neatly on the bed, they smell fresh as if they are this way all the time. I heard them over talking (foster parents) the social worker will be here today. I 'm being placed in another home, another dump I 'm sure. I start packing without being told, I know this routine all too well. I can see the Social Worker pull up in her beat up car, I doubt they pay her a lot of money to come transport me though.
Are you guys being dicks without me?” Darcy Calloway. I don’t want this to be like some Regina George shit where I go on about the cool stuff he’s done and worship him like some God. But Darcy is quite simply the best of the best. He’s smart, athletic, attractive, charming and apparently very big down there (not my observations). Teachers love him, parents love him, girls love him, and the boys also love him.
A message from Kelley, or so I thought. I opened the message to reveal a large paragraph, from Kelley 's mother. "Hi, this is Kelley 's mother," it read. "Kelley has been hospitalized. She walked into my room with her wrists slit, blood pouring out.

She answered it’s all part of The Quartering Act of 1765, it’s the duty of the colonists to feed and shelter the soldiers. The woman fed me, and she excused herself. I sat down and wondered if all the soldiers were still in a house.
In the Great Gatsby theirs this character named Tom Buchanan. Tom is a white upper class, Yale graduate man, who is rich, mean, successful, and holds a lot of power. Tom is an interesting character because he is a symbol of the typical privileged white man in the 1920’s who is living the America dream. His success is something he takes pride in, and wants to hold on to by any means necessary. When analyzing classes and race I think Tom Buchanan would be an interesting character to look at due to the fact he said “Civilization’s going to pieces”, broke out Tom violently.
The life of George Washington. His life was very interesting he did many great things. He was the first president of the United States. One reason why I choose him is because he was a really smart and intelligent man. He helped a lot of people George has had smallpox before.
If her mother keeps telling her about the troubles that they are going through in detail, Callie can’t just forget that. After her mom says that, Callie spaced out, “I tried to concentrate on what the mother was saying... The mother’s mouth was moving but the character who was me was walking away” (18). She says this in a third person point of view as though she faded out of the reality, and watched herself get up. That’s when she walked into the visitor’s bathroom, and cut her wrist with the teeth of the paper towel dispenser (18), “There was a jab, bright beads of blood, and finally I was OK.” Callie stated after (18).
