There is one extra heading which you do not need to use. Uncle Tom's Cabin 1. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly, first appeared as the serial in the National Era, an antislavery newspaper in Washington D.C. When it was published as a book in 1852, it was an immediate success in the USA. Soon the novel was translated into several languages and became an international bestseller. 2. The book influenced public views and gave a new impulse to the liberation movement all over the world, including the liberation of Russian serfs.^ Uncle Tom’s Cabin was an attack upon the slave-owners in the South of the USA and upon the institution of slavery as such. According to Abraham Lincoln the book helped the North to win the civil war and abolish slavery in the country. 3. The novel has often been accused of being too sentimental because of its conventional characters and highly emotional scenes. The characters are largely stereotyped: some are real villains (the slave trader Haley), others are suffering innocents (Little Eva), and the main character is an all-forgiving slave. But beyond the conventional characters of sentimental fiction, the reader finds true-to-life insights into plantation life and the motivation of both slave-owners and slaves. 4. Harriet Beecher Stowe was born in 1811 into an orthodox Calvinist family: her father and five of her brothers were churchmen educated in Hartford, Connecticut, where she was born. She spent most of the life in the North. Stowe hardly had any direct experience with slavery. But she came from a family strongly opposed to this unjust system. When the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 was passed, she became outraged. Her morals and her sense of justice inspired her to write the classic novel that went down in history. a.

Robert Frost (1874—1963) is one of America’s most widely read poets and a four time winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Though his verse forms are traditional, he experimented with rhythm and meter and with the poetic use of everyday speech vocabulary. 2-0. B, Лфанасьсаа. 8 КЛ. 17 UNIT1 Robert Lee Frost was born in San Francisco on March 26, 1874. After the death of Frost’s father in 1885, the family left California and settled in Massachusetts. Frost taught at school, worked in a mill and as a reporter. In 1894 he sold “My Butterfly: An Elegy” to the Independent, a New York literary journal. He attended Harvard College as a special student but left without a degree. Over the next ten years he wrote (but rarely published) poems, ran a farm and taught students. In 1912 he sold the farm and took his family to England, where he could devote himself entirely to writing. His poems got favourable reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. The Frosts returned to the United States in 1915 where Robert Frost started a long career of writing, teaching and lecturing. “The Road Not Taken”, “Birches” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” show Frost’s ability to join the pastoral and philosophical subjects in poems of unforgettable beauty. 18 MUNITiS^:: I Ur I Education: The World of Learning 1 Listen to the interviews, 0ZI No 3, and write answers to these questions.

Read the text “Budgeting Your Time” and decide if this method of time budgeting is effective. Budgeting Your Time Schools are set up to teach many subjects and many skills. How will you budget your time? This question is often the hardest one for pupils to answer. Not all study assignments are pleasant and it is human to want to put off dull or difficult assignments. When such things are postponed, time always seems to run out before they are done. If you really want to be a good pupil, you must budget time for your studies. The best way is to do the school assignments first and devote the time left over to other enjoyable but less important activities. Although it will be difficult to start with study, you will have more fun after your work is done. Then you can enjoy yourself without worrying that you won’t have time for your homework. In planning your time, you might sit down and list all the activities in which you are engaged. For example your goal may be a better grade in history, but history is only a part of your schoolwork. Perhaps you also practise a musical instrument, and play for the school basketball team. Once you have listed all your activities, put a number beside each one: “1” for the most important, “2” for the next most important, and so on. This is called setting priorities, and it is a very important part of planning. If you know ahead of time what is most important, and you pay attention to that activity first, chances are that you will succeed in accomplishing your aims. If you choose an ambitious study goal, you will soon understand that it will have to be high on your list of priorities if it is to be reached. If study is always left until last, and if it gets left out altogether when time is short, then no planning is likely to help you to reach your goal. Another important thing is to stick to a plan. There are two kinds of planners: the first likes to make a plan but never follows through. The second makes plans so that he can accomplish them. The first kind of planner usually ends up disappointed in himself or looking for someone to blame. The second kind knows that a plan is no better than its execution. The successful planner is the one who actually sticks to the plan and reaches his goal. B. Guess what these words and word combinations mean. 1) Budgeting time is a) planning the way you will spend your time b) spending your time 20 UNIT 2 2) An assignment is a) work you must do as part of a course of study b) an examination you must sit as part of a course of study 3) ‘To postpone’ means a) to decide that something will be done on time b) to decide that something will not be done at the time when it was planned for, but at a later time 4) A goal is a) something that you have achieved b) something that you hope to achieve 5) A grade is a) a letter or numbers that show the quality of a student’s work b) a student’s reputation 6) Setting priorities is a) deciding what must be done first or needs more attention b) doing first of all the things that need more attention or must be done as soon as possible 7) Accomplishing your aim is a) not succeeding in doing something b) succeeding in doing something 8) An ambitious goal is a) a difficult goal that will need a lot of effort to succeed b) a new goal you want to reach 9) ‘To stick to a plan’ means a) to do things according to a plan b) to plan things ahead 10) Execution of a plan is a) making plans for something that you want to do b) completing something that you have planned 4 Translate the last two paragraphs of the text with a dictionary (Ex. 3, p. 19). 5 Write a page about your method of time budgeting. 21 UNIT 2 6 Read the text and make it complete with the help of the derivatives that are formed from the words written on the right.

Disney now runs theme parks on three continents; McDonald’s restaurants can be found everywhere; the Marlboro man sells cigarettes throughout Europe, Latin America and Asia; American sports, music and movie stars are the most recognized people in the world; American TV shows such as “Friends”, “ER”, and “The Simpsons” are dubbed into dozens of languages. 34 UNIT 3 2. Today American culture can be found in almost every country. But the question is: is the United States opening opportunities to people around the world, or destroying local cultures and customs? And what made American culture to be so dominant? 3. American culture has spread mostly as a result of trade. Companies like McDonald’s, Nike and Coca-Cola export their products, and with them American culture, because they want to make more money. 4. This expansion in trade is largely the result of breaking trade barriers between countries. Once most governments tried to protect and isolate their country’s economy from the global marketplace, but now they rush to participate in global trading. 5. This global trade has both advantages and disadvantages. Supporters of trade argue that it creates jobs, as the large global market needs more workers to produce more goods. Global trade also results in economic growth. For example, countries such as Hong Kong and Taiwan have dramatically increased their average incomes per person by trading globally. Opponents of globalization, in their turn, say that powerful multinational economy has a lot to offer, leaving poorer opportunities to national companies. They also speak against global uniformity for regional and cultural differences. a. GLOBAL TRADING: PROS AND CONS b. WILLING TO BE PART OF THE MARKET c. THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL TRADING d.

There is one extra heading which you do not need to use. By the Light of the Moon 1. Today most of us are pretty used to the moon. There it is in the sky — crescent or half or full... Years ago people lived by the changing phases of the moon. They kept calendars and holidays by the moon. They planted seed in the spring’s new moon and harvested in the autumn’s full moon. And fishermen all over the world told the morrow’s weather by the moon. 2. For many people the moon long remained a mysterious heavenly body that could bring good fortune or ill. It could bring good luck if it was a new moon and you had silver coins in your pocket to jingle. A new moon was also the time to make a wish, take a trip, go a-courting, or cut your hair. 3. But the moon could bring bad luck, too. If you saw a woman combing her hair in the light of the full moon, or you planted seed during the full moon, you would have bad luck. Almost everyone believed that if you slept with moonlight on your face, you’d go crazy. Indeed so many people believe this that we get the word lunatic from the Latin word for moon, luna. 4. Today, of course, we know that none to these things is true. You can sleep in the moonlight and wake up as normal as you were yesterday. You might harvest your crops in the full moon with poor results or harvest in a sickle moon and do well. You might start your vacation during the new moon and have a flat tire right away. 5. Nevertheless, there it is... the moon, hanging up there in the sky, seeming to change its shape before our very eyes. No wonder people continue to be fascinated by it. Since the beginning of time, they have tried to explain how it got there and why it behaves the way it does. The first people to try to explain the creation and behaviour of the moon were tribal poets and storytellers. There are hundreds of folktales about the moon. 47 UNIT 4 a.

Why do the Amish choose to live the way they do? 4. Why don’t the Amish have electricity? 5. Why do they leave school when they are so young? 6. Do the Amish like attracting tourists? 7. Which three languages do the Amish speak? 8. Do the Amish try to modernize themselves? 9. Aren’t young Amish curious about the world outside their community? a) In 1972 the US Supreme Court allowed the Amish to stop school at 13. The Amish do not think their children need more school edu- cation after the age of 13 because they will either do farm work, carpentry or help with the family business. 62 UNIT 5 b) The Amish look like they are from the eighteenth century. For the Amish, fashion is vanity. The women are not allowed to cut their hair, wear jewelry or make-up. They aren’t even allowed to wear clothes with buttons because buttons look too fussy, too modern. Men have to wear black suits and socks with a plain shirt. The Amish attitude to appearance is simplicity and modesty. They will never wear clothing in order to look good and they will not show much of their body. Unfortunately for them, their appearance is perfect for photo-hungry tourists. c) They don’t want to but most communities do now have one telephone box for emergencies and perhaps one tractor for very heavy work. Communities often have meetings to discuss whether to accept a particular aspect of the modern world and what effect it will have on them. d) They are united by their beliefs. The Bible is a sacred text for the Amish and they follow it to the letter. The community was started in the 1720s in Europe as a separate group of Swiss Christians. They have additional unwritten rules concerning lifestyle too. There are currently about 30 000 Amish in North America. The biggest Amish Community in the USA is in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In the summer it is visited by millions of people. e) The Amish choose to live in the past. They do without e-mails, CDs, computers and a whole lot of other things too. 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 63 UNIT 5 radios, dishwashers 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 don’t want to be a part of the modern world because it is too complicated and corrupt. They live independently in their own community. They even have their own schools which have only one or two classrooms. They learn reading, writing. Maths and morals. The big difference from regular American school is that they learn nothing about the world outside their community and they do not continue their education beyond the eighth grade. g) Yes, and many are allowed to find out more or try things that “other” kids do (within reason). Some occasionally listen to music or even try roller-skating (using bicycle is forbidden because they travel too fast), but when they confirm their beliefs at age thirteen, they promise to accept Amish rules and reject such things. Only one in five people leaves the Amish community. The Amish say this shows that people enjoy living the way that they do. h) Yes and no. They sell things they have made by hand (they are famous for their quilts) but they don’t like people taking their photographs. They say photographs steal their souls and are a sign of vanity. But tourists are very insistent. One Amish teenager said he felt like an animal in a zoo. Some visitors shout things such as “Why are you so backward?” They often tease the Amish about their clothes or knock their hats off as a joke. Demonstrating anger is against Amish beliefs so they do not protest verbally or physically. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. b) d) 4 Translate points b) and f), write down your translation. 5 Write a page about the Amish and their lifestyle.

Television Television is the electronic transmission of moving images with accompanying sound, sent from a central source or sources to home television screens. From the 1950s, when television viewing first became common, until the mid-1970s the technology available to the television audience was rather simple and consisted essentially of a TV set. The 1980s, however, witnessed an explosion of new devices for home entertainment. The entire field, including television itself, is now known under the name of video. Television images can be relayed from one point to another by several transmission systems. One of them uses electromagnetic radiation, or waves, that are sent over the air. Another is cable television using a community antenna or a receiving dish and distributing the signals by cable to subscribers. Yet another method of bringing television signals to the home is satellite transmission. Communications satellites receive signals from the Earth, change signal frequency, and transmit them back to the Earth. Nowadays we can speak about two types of television: commercial and noncommercial. Commercial television gets money from advertising when noncommercial television is financed by other sources as well. Probably the best-known noncommercial television system is the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), created by royal charter in 1927. The BBC was formed to “educate and enlighten”, a philosophy diametrically opposed to the US system, in which commercial broadcasters try to foresee and fulfil viewer preferences. 1. Television sends out electronic signals. 2. The 1970s saw a revolution in TV technologies. 3. Nowadays the name of video is equivalent to the word television. 4. There are at least three ways of sending out moving images. 5. TV signals can’t travel in the air. 6. Subscribers to cable television get signals not directly from the transmitter but from a powerful receiving device. 7. Communications satellites are launched to receive and send information. 8. Advertising raises money only for commercial television. 9. The BBC was formed according to the monarch’s order. 10. Both American commercial broadcasters and the BBC believe that their aim lies in educating and enlightening. 79 UNIT 6 4 Translate the text “Television” into Russian. 5 In the list below choose one of the items which you find true and write your arguments. 1.

TV Millionaire “Anybody can do it,” says garden designer who won quiz’s top prize. littp://kurokam.™ After two years ITV’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? turned up its first £1 m winner. Judith Keppel, 58, achieved what many had thought impossible by taking the top prize with a remarkably wide-ranging knowledge of history and geography combined with good judgement and an element of good luck. Ms Keppel, a garden designer from Fulham in West London is trying to decide how to spend her new-found fortune. Her success gave ITV chiefs almost as much reason to celebrate. After all, they had already given away £11,800,000 to get here. Right to the last, the show’s host, Chris Tarrant, kept up the pressure on Ms Keppel. Seeing the £1 m question: “Which king was married to Eleanor of Aquitaine?” Ms Keppel did something that no other contestant of the British version of the show has done before — she decided to gamble £468,000 by answering. An incorrect reply would have sent her winnings to £32,000, and the show’s producers intensified the atmosphere by cutting to a commercial break. It was three minutes before Tarrant said what he knew as soon as she had replied: that Henry II was the correct answer. As the audience jumped to its feet in joy, Ms Keppel remained as cool as she had been since starting out on the journey to £1 m. Her 80 UNIT 6 daughter Rosie ran down from the audience to hug her, while Tarrant expressed surprise at her calm. Ms Keppel replied: “I can’t believe it, that’s why.” She then turned to her daughter and joked: “What do you want for Christmas?” Viewers first saw Ms Keppel on Saturday night, when she was the only perspective contestant who correctly placed four former prime ministers in date order. Her next hurdle came on the £16,000 question when she required the audience’s help to name Mr Blair’s country of birth. The location of Duffel, the town which gave its name to a variety of coat, proved more problematic. She used her 50-50 lifeline to reduce the possible answers to Belgium and Holland. After some thinking she hit on Belgium. “It sounded more French. So I chose Belgium. That was my real gamble.” It paid off, because she was puzzled by a question about a stage direction from Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. Fortunately her friend of 10 years, Jilly Greenwood, shrieked: “I know the answer, darling.” And she took £125,000. Tarrant said the strategy had saved her. “She was very clever at using her lifelines. She could have used her phone-a-friend on the Duffel coat question but she said “no, my friends wouldn’t know this.” In her interview Ms Keppel said, “Money has not been a terrible problem and I’m obviously not on the breadline, but I’m really looking forward to spending it.” (You can find the questions Ms Keppel answered in Ex. 7 and see if you can answer them.) 1. According to the article, what helped Ms Keppel to win £1 m? 2. What question made her a millionaire? 3. What three lifelines did she use in the game? 4. Do you agree that “anybody can do it” and win the top prize in a game show like this? 5. Do they show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? on Russian television? Do you watch it or other programmes like this? 6. What makes game shows on television so popular? 7 This is what Ms Keppel’s route to riches was like. See if you can do it too.
