INT. ELSENHAM. MY HOUSE. MORNING.
WE SEE THE CAMERA BEING SET UP IN
FRONT OF MY BED AS I SIT COMFORTABLY
IN BED GETTING READY TO ANSWER SOME
Okay I think everything is set up,
you've got the microphone?
Yeah I do, should we start recording?
Whenever you're ready.
I PRESS RECORD ON THE MICROPHONE AND
WE START FILMING.
So, how long have you been living in
I'd say about 5 years, nearly 6.
Do you consider yourself English or
Spanish. Definitely spanish.

I guess because I was born there and my
parents are both Spanish. I don't think
the country you live in has anything to
do with who you are.
So if you were given the option to
move back, would you do it?
Hell no. Even though I constantly moan
about the weather I wouldn't even
consider moving back there.
So you'd stay here with the rain and
clouds instead of going to Spain with
the heat and sun? I'm gonna need a good
explanation for that answer. (laughs)
I think that's the only thing wrong
with this country. The food its not too
bad, and the education is definitely
better and its really important,
especially now. So I rather stay here
and go back for holidays. Plus i've met
a lot of great people over here.
Like me. So was it hard to move to

another country when you were 12?
Oh obviously (laughs) I actually don't
remember much... But I know I hated how
I couldn't socialise with people
because I hardly knew any English. But
I mean even the people are different,
they're more closed about themselves
which made it even harder.
So how long did it take you to learn
the language completely?
I'd say a few months, maybe 5 or so.
I think its time to go out and get
some footage of your little village.
We'll need about 10 minutes and we'll

Okay well I'm guessing the design of
the houses are obviously different.
What about Elsenham overall?
Well Elsenham is pretty small, I don't
think we have such a small villages in
spain. Not where I used to live anyway.
INT. ELSENHAM. MY HOUSE. AFTERNOON.
FRIEND AND PAULA GO BACK TO PAULA'S
HOUSE TO INTERVIEW HER FAMILY MEMBERS
ABOUT THE IMPACT THAT HAD ON THEIR
LIVES WHEN THEY MOVED TO ENGLAND.
WE WALK TOWARDS THE LIVING ROOM WHERE
PAULA'S MUM IS SAT DOWN WATCHING TV AND
PAULA SITS NEXT TO HER. HE SETS UP THE
CAMERA AND THE TRIPOD MAKING SURE THE
LIGHTING IS RIGHT.
Right okay, so tell me. If you could
move back to spain, would you?
I definitely would, I hate it over
here. The weather, the people,

Also what about the food? Don't you
eat earlier in spain?
Well she still cooks spanish food so
that's not much different.
Well over there we would all be sat at
the table by 2pm then we would be
eating until 3pm but here it's
completely different. People either eat
at 5pm or 8pm.
Do you know how to cook English meals?
Oh yeah, I make Sheppard's pies, roast
Oh nice, overall are you glad to move
I would say I am because schools are

very far with how she was doing over
there whereas in here shes doing way

benefits them too.
