Task 1. Read the text and say if the sentences are true (T) or false (F)
The Amish don’t have cars, they use horses. They don’t have televisions either. In fact, they don’t even have electricity. They don’t need it because they don’t have radios, computers or anything electrical at all.
Some people might feel sorry for them or think they are mad, but this is the way that the Amish have chosen to live. They are a religious group that was started in the 1720s in Europe.
There are now around 30,000 Amish in North America. They don’t want to be a part of the modern world. They have their own schools, which have only one or two classrooms. They learn reading, writing, maths and morals. They learn nothing about the outside world, and they leave school after the age of 13. The Amish don’t think their children need more school education, because they will do farm work or help with the family business.
Tourists come to look at the Amish, because they sell things they have made by hand and because people want to take their photo. They look like they are from the 18th century. Women are not allowed to cut their hair or wear make-up. They aren’t even allowed to wear clothes with buttons. Men have to wear black suits. The Amish say they enjoy living the way they do and don’t want to change it.
