4. Well, I think for the most part, it was a great advantage to be one of the younger ones. I%27m the second youngest, so having ten, you know, ten siblings, ten older than me definitely helped be growing up because I always had a lot of people to look up to and, you know, telling me right from wrong, which was always a great help. Financially, it was the biggest advantage because, you know, I hear stories from my older siblings about them growing up because they didn%27t have a lot of resources and financially my family wasn%27t very stable so as they got older, I started working and helping out with, you know, all the expenses. It really helped us little ones to really be, you know, grow up in a better way and have all the things that maybe they didn%27t. And also, one of the biggest advantages was that once the older, my older siblings started working, making enough money, you know, they raised enough money to move here to the United States, and bring the rest of us here and we had the great advantage of going to school here in the United States and being able to learn another language, ____________________ ourselves, continue to go onto college, which is something that my older siblings didn%27t have, so I%27m very grateful for that.

If such a thing would exist. That would be great. But in fact, yeah, for me it was quite a ____________________ because I didn%27t know so much about salsa when I first started dancing when I was maybe 14 years old, where I got interested, and so I started to take some lessons in Canada and then I started dancing a bit and then I decided to do an exchange program in Spain for two years, where of course, in a latin country people dance more, those kind of dances, so I could take some lessons from a professional Argentinian tango teacher which taught me a lot about listening to the music, the rhythm and everything like that, so I really got into it so since then, since I%27m 14 years old, so it%27s been close to 8, 9 years now that I%27ve been dancing South American dances.

18. True. True, but sadly I think most Master%27s programs, or most education systems are geared actually just to make money, and they have a system where they give the books, you read the books, you write the papers, but there%27s no real learning going on, and it%27s, in effect, I think it%27s a waste of time, but that%27s not the real way that people learn. They learn by actually doing things or having a challenge and trying to ____________________ the challenge using any resource possible, and it seems to me that most Master%27s programs, MBA, Education, whatever, they don%27t really teach that.

20. Well, I have two different experiences. Because in Syria it is pretty different to Dubai, so in Syria for example, you%27d have to bribe the police officers even if you didn%27t do anything because that%27s how they live. But in Dubai they get really nice wages and they don%27t need your bribe. For example, once I was eating dates while I was driving. I was speaking on my phone, my mobile phone, and I was not wearing my seat belt, and I was not paying attention, and then the policeman asked me to pull over, and when I did, I didn%27t even know what was the problem, so when he came to me and said to me, %22Can I have the car ____________________ and license?%22 I said, %22Yeah, sure. Please take one date, or a date, while I look for them.%22 And he said, %22No, sorry, I can%27t.%22 And I was so upset with that. I said, %22What do you mean you can%27t? Are you better than me? Is that what you%27re trying to say?%22 And he said, %22No, It%27s illegal. I can%27t. You know what, just go. I don%27t need anything from you. Please go.%22 (achieve, achievement, educate, education, educational, challenge, elementary, admission, admission, accept, acceptable, acceptance, accomplish, dormitory, register, registeration)

And for the high school, like, from the 8th grade until 12th grade, well, they study what other students study in different countries but nowadays they are focusing on more, like, English studies or different language studies.

I shared a room with two other girls and 24 hours a day there was always someone near you, next door, down the hall if not in your own room, and a very small space.
