We 5!! !!/174/l6’l” A Dramatic Presentation for Basic English, Unit 2. The scene takes place in a park on a lovely summer day. There is a picnic table with a picnic lunch spread out. Some of the actors are carrying sports equipment. P: Hey, gang, I'm here now. The party can begin! D: Did you bring your bathing suit and whistle? You may have to save us all from drowning in the lake, hot-shot lifeguard! A few people chuckle. ‘ll: Don't jump him/ her for being a lifeguard. That's a cool Job! How'd you get it, P? P: Well, for starters, I learned to swim when l was a kid. Then I was bright enough in high school to study Health and get C. P.R. and first aid training. Of course, an "A" in the course was an added bonus. But, and get this, the crowning glory that really cinched the job for me was that I was bilingual! When kids are doing something dangerous in water, they need to hear a loud command in their first language and, as some of you know, I can be loud! Laughter. L: Are you telling us that when you told them you were from Mexico and your parents only speak Spanish, they thought that was great? ?? 0: Get with the program, L. lt's hip to be bilingual! Bilingual is beautiful, and be- ing bicultural is even better. L: Oh, right! Like none of you has ever had any problems here because you came from another country. I must be the only one who's experienced prejudice! M: Here's some tortillas and salsa picante for you “bicultural" folks. Isn't that just a big word for “chicano”? Everyone grabs and eats chips.

2s’ 0: No. Bicultural means people who have lived in two countries long enough to become a part of each culture. Like Naomi is bicultural because she lived in Japan when she was little, but went to high school here. Her cousin, however, knows nothing about Japan —she‘s only American. She's not bicultural. Chicanos are Mexican-American. P: Pass the chips you hogs. Does anyone else have a job where they use their bilingual skills? D: To tell the truth, I'd never have gotten my promotion in the orchard if I weren't bilingual. I understand the boss's English when he gives instructions, and then I translate those instructions into Spanish for my crew. P: There you go! School pays off. I bet you're glad now that I kept you awake in the apple management class! Laughter. P gets up and stretches. L: Come on, D. Lets see if the new foreman here can play frisbee. Maybe he's too soft for us laborers. P, L, and D play pretend fr/ sbee on stage. M: Us nine—to—fivers will put lunch together, OK? M & O pretend to open jars, stir things, and arrange plates. 0: What do you do at the medical clinic, M? M: It's a godsend of a job for me. I am learning so much, and I want to go into a medical field in college. Now I book patients, file charts, and, of course, translate. 0: Do you want to be a doctor or a nurse? M: Neither; I'd rather be a technician. I can get into a two—year training program to be a medical technician and earn excellent money. What about you? O: i got on at the preschool for the summer, and I like it because I want to be a teacher. It really helps to be bilingual when some little kid wets his pants or gets in a fight on the playground. They laugh. L: Hey, over there, isn't it time to say "Come and get it! "? I'm famished. D: Ready or not, you shall be caught. We're heading for the food! The scene ends as everyone gathers around the picnic table.
