Living Emirates Magazine

Halfa World Away

Life in the 21st century can require all of us to be flexible and mobile. Many jobs need us to move from place to place or country to country

Living Emirates Magazine spoke to two families who have made international moves, to find out how they dealt with the challenges

The travellers

Rashid Ansari and his wife Saeeda took their two sons, Saif, 10, and Hassan, 12, to London for two years when Rashid was sent there for work

A tough decision

Rashid: When my office in Dubai told me they wanted me to move to London for a two-year position, it was difficult to decide what to do It was important to us to stay together as a family, but moving to London would change our lives and the boys' education. In the end, we decided to make the move together I felt it was important for the boys to have the influence of both their parents. If I had gone to London alone, Saeeda would have had to manage alone, and the boys can be abit ta.handfu


Language tip

When you read, you can get a general idea of what. a text is about, but you might not understand every word. Try to work out the meaning of unfamiliar words from their context; for example, 'mobile'. The article is called 'Half a World Away' and it's about people moving to places that are far away. So 'mobile' means moving around. If you can't work out the meaning, use a dictionary

The right decision for us

Saeeda: When Rashid first told me that his company had asked him to work in London, I was very 'dLLißd. I was worried about being left alone here in Dubai with the boys, but I was also worried about moving so far away to a country where I have no family or friends. In the end, we decided it would be best to be together, so we took the plunge. Looking back, it was definitely the right decision for us. We made many new friends, and the boys benefitted so much from seeing their father every day. If anything, I think that moving away for a while made us more proud to be Emirati. We often had to explain things about Dubai and the UAE to our new friends in London

What the kids say

Sail: I liked living in London, although we lived in a flat there, not like our villa here in Dubai

Hassan: I didn't want to go to London, because I thought I would miss my friends. But we kept in touch with video calls and I wrote a blog for my English class back in Dubai. In the end, I almost didn't want to come home because I had made good friends in London, but now I'm glad to be back in Dubai


Posted by: Abdullah Year 7

My first few weeks at middle school have been really fun! I've made loads of new friends and I've also met up with some old friends that I haven't seen for a while, so that's been good

At first, it was hard to find all my classes — I kept getting lost and one teacher told me off because I was ten minutes late for her lesson. Now I know my way around. The teachers have been really kind and the lessons aren't too difficult. We haven't had much homework yet, but I'm sure we'll get more after half -term

Anyway, so far, so good Posted by: Sunil, Year 7 On my first day here I was a bit nervous, but after a few hours I was fine. The first few weeks have been really good

I've enjoyed learning new subjects and making new friends. My favourite subject is Science. It's fun learning in a lab! I've joined the school orchestra. I play the drums. It's great We're doing a concert at the end of term
