as if It was an annoyance to be interviewed and would only speak in Pushtu to the linguist even though he spoke
English very well. He understood the questions In English and almost responded to them but waited until the
linguist would translate before he answered. At one point during the interview, he asked for a bottle of water and
the linguist left the room to retrieve the water. During this time, had no problems speaking in English
but Once the linguist re-entered the room, he quit speaking English and tumed to speaking Pushtu.
