The Amish are a group of religiouscommunites. They are originally from Europe, but they now live in the USA and Canada. Because of their history, they
don't speak English at home--they speak an old-fashioned German. Amish families are usually large, with six or seven children. Their clothes are the same as the first Amish families 300 years ago. The men wear straw hats and black shoes. All married men have a beard, but no moustavhe. Their wives have long hair, but theyalways cover it.
