They moved here with their parents two years ago. Their father, Peter, works for a very big company.

His family always goes with him.

The Robinsons love seeing the world. They have been to many interesting places. For example, in Egypt, they have seen the Pyramids, travelled on a boat on the Nile, and visited the palaces and towers of ancient kings and queens.

Mike and Clare have also begun to learn the language of the country, Arabic. This language is different from English in many ways, and they find it hard to spell and pronounce the words. However, they still enjoy learning it. So far they have learnt to speak German, French, Chinese and Arabic. Sometimes they mix the languages. “It’s really fun,” said Clare.
迈克和克莱尔也开始学习这个国家的语言——阿拉伯语。这种语言在很多方面与英语不同,他们发现阿拉伯语的拼写和发音都不容易。然而他们仍然爱学。到目前为止,他们已学习了说德语、法语、汉语和阿拉伯语。有时他们混合使用这些语言。克莱尔说:“那真的很有趣。”

The Robinsons are moving again. The company has asked Peter to work back in the US. Mike and Clare are happy about this. They have friends all over the world, but they also miss their friends in the US. They are counting down the days.
