6.1. Read the text Family life. What does Kathy actually tell you about herself?


Family life

Kathy Papas, Sydney, Australia:

’My parents came here from the Greek island of Kalymnos in 1965. I was eight years old, the eldest of four children. We shared a house with three other families from Kalymnos when we arrived in Sydney. We were quite Lucky - both my parents found jobs and after about 20 months here they bought a house. But life wasn’t easy for my parents. Language was a real problem and they never real settled down here. They missed their friends back home, Greek hospitality in general, and the closeness to nature they had on the island. In 1980 they moved back to Greece and my father died five years later.

My husband and I socialize almost entirely with our families – his sister and my brother and their children – and other Greek-Australians. We meet in each other’s homes and sometimes we have a barbecue together. Most Greeks live in the suburbs to the east of Sydney so we don’t have far to travel to see each other.

We also send our three daughters to Greek classes twice a week after regular classes. They were all born here but a lot of Australians still tend to think of them as foreigners. This is perhaps the reason that we Greek-Australians stay together like a big family.’
