One thought on “Dictation 5: Grandmother”

  1. NON LEGGERE QUI SOTTO SE NON HAI ANCORA SVOLTO L’ESERCIZIO.

    Six months before she died, my grandmother moved into an old people’s home and I visited her there when I was in Britain. She was sitting in the living room with about fifteen other residents, mostly women, half of them asleep. The room was clean and warm, with flowers and pictures, and the care assistants were kind and cheerful. The television was on, and the only other sound was snoring and embarrassing digestive noises. People only moved when they needed to be helped to the bathroom. It was depressing. Grandma talked a lot about how much she missed seeing her grandchildren, but I knew from my sister that they hated visiting her there, and to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t wait to get away myself.
