Read the description of the lifestyle of the Amish people. Then match the paragraph titles (A–G) with the paragraphs (1–6). There is one extra title.
1 _____ The name ‘Amish’ comes from Jacob Amman, a seventeenth-century bishop in Switzerland. Although the Amish originated in Europe, they emigrated to the USA in search of religious freedom.
2 _____ They live in small towns, also called settlements in nineteen states in the USA, southern Canada and Central America. No matter where they settled, they continued their traditional farm life and their religious customs.
3 _____ Amish children are frequently educated at home or in traditional Amish one-room schools and they do not attend classes after the eighth grade. The Amish teach their young people how to be homemakers and farmers, carpenters and tradesmen from a very early age.
4 _____ Some people think that the Amish are strange because they do not use petrol or electricity which pollute the environment. They are against cars, tractors, radio, television and telephones. They believe they should keep our planet clean.
5 _____ Choosing a wife or husband is the key decision in an Amish person's life. It is interesting that instead of a diamond or gold ring, a man gives his bride china or a clock before they get married. At the wedding ceremony, the bride wears a blue dress which is the most popular colour choice. Finally, the wedding usually takes place in November or December, on a Tuesday or Thursday. It is a fascinating event.
6 _____ They speak a dialect of German at home; they use ‘standard’ German at their church services; and they learn English at school. They speak English when they have to communicate with anyone who is not Amish.
