Unusual Jobs: A Bodyguard Q The profession has been recently romanticized through American films. For a long time it has been primarily associated with American lifestyle, and it’s not surprising. Я Altogether, four American presidents have been assassinated and attempts have been made on the lives of others. The first president to have been killed was Abraham Lincoln. He was shot while attending the theatre in Washington. James Garfield was shot a few months after his inauguration and died at the age of forty-nine. William McKinley was killed in Buffalo, New York in 1901. John Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas in 1963. a magic wand [wond] — волшебная палочка 1 UNIT 1 _____________________________________________________ After the third assassination in 1901, the protection of presidents was put in the hands of the United States Secret Service and^ nowadays wherever a president goes he is surrounded by Secret Service guards who all have a tendency to look very similar — the unsmiling men with short haircuts and sunglasses are easy to recognize in the crowd. There are women too, but many more men. If the president wants to go fishing or horse-riding, the Secret Service agents will have to learn enough about the activity to accompany him. Q Their training as agents takes place at a training centre in a little town called Beltsville, Maryland. All the prospective agents are carefully selected. The actual training includes learning to shoot pistols, rifles and how to drive at high speeds and in minimum space. Agents always examine the area of a proposed presidential visit. In fact^they can veto a visit if they consider it unsafe. Then they decide what equipment and manpower will be needed. The team also produces details of escape routes and plans for emergency evacuation. In June 1992, for example, when a problem arose on President Bush’s trip to Panama City, he and Mrs Bush escaped in an armoured limousine which had been parked in a side street. Nowadays, there is a large number of people protected by the Secret ^ Service. The president and vice-president and their families, former presidents, their wives and children up to the age 16, visiting heads of state and spouses, other important foreign visitors and US representatives on special missions abroad. The Secret Service budget is about $500 million. Qj The Secret Service does of course keep very quiet about its operations ^ but it is of great interest to the general public. That is why there are so many books and films about secret agents. Film companies often employ real agents as advisers so that the film should be true-to-life. (from “Speak Out”, 4-5/1999. Adapted) P Read the text “Unusual Jobs: A Bodyguard” and ask questions to which these can be answers. 1. It was Abraham Lincoln, the 16th American president. 2. It happened soon after he was inaugurated. 3. They have their hair cut short, wear sunglasses and seldom smile. 4. Yes, there are, but the number of men is bigger. 5. Among other things they learn to shoot and drive. 6. If they think that the place is not safe. 7. Because it gave them a chance to be quickly evacuated. 8. In Panama City. 9. Yes, when the people they protect go abroad on special missions. 10. Because the operations of the Secret Service are of great interest. 10 _____ _____ UNIT 1 II The text about bodyguards consists of six paragraphs. The first and the last are the introduction and the conclusion. Give titles to paragraphs 2, 3, 4, and 5. II Imagine that you are recruiting young people to become secret agents. Speak to them about the history of the service in the USA and about the job generally. Make your speech as emotional and as convincing as you can. You can also act out the situation. ^Reading for Information IQ The name of the magazine article you are going to read is ‘'Little House on the Table”. Have you heard about dollhouses before? How would you describe one? Could you make one yourself? Would you like to? Why (not)? ii Read the article once and answer these questions. 1. Whose hobby is making miniature ["mmatja] houses? 2. What country do they live in? What part of the country? 3. Are there any other miniature enthusiasts in the place where they live? 4. Who was the first person in the family to get interested in this hobby? 5. What does Kathy Koons do as a job?

The Koons’ family project, argrowing collection of miniature dollhous-es»-is .{Liipbby Kathy Koons has had for more than seven years and her daughters took up two years .ago. Together mother and daughters have created more than 15 houses. “We never throw anything away,” Kathy Koons says. “Almost everything can be used in our miniature houses.” ^ , Jennifer, 13, and Allison, И, have designed two award-winning scenes. The tiny lived-in-looking kitchen^ and a twin bedroom they call “Don’t ‘ the tiny lived-in-looking kitchen — крошечная обжитая кухонька 11 UNIT 1 __________________________________:______________ step Over the Line”. The room has two twin beds, lamps made from beads, posters on the walls ra^de from pictures cut from magazines and framed with straws, _window shades’’and books neatly placed in a bookshelf with covers made from magazine cutouts. Jenifer created one side of the room, Allison created the other. ^ The houses start as~a cardboard box.. The girls!say that choosing the theme, planning and deciding what items will go into the scene take the most time. They first make a_sketch and often make paper model of their j)lanA. „Then the work begins. They use a special type of adhesive plaster to glue the items. It allows them to move the objects if they change ideas or redecorate with another theme. One house can take three to four months Jto complete. Mother and daughters work together, creating on _the_kitc^n table, or somfitimes_on^lh£,flo^’_in_the family room. Lots of space is needed. As a child, Kathy was captivated by miniatures and frequently visited miniature exhibitions at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. She never lost her interest, ^he and her daughters joined the Miniature Worlds a club for miniature enthusiasts, which offers advice for making houses and holds boxroom contests. One club project was an outdoor tent. Some materials were provided in a kit, including the tent itself, but then it was up to the originality of the creator. The Koonses used paper towels to wrap stones surrounding a campfire with a chicken cooking on it. Inside the tent you could see camp beds, pillows, sleeping bags, paper plates and flashlights. They make miniature food out of clay and bake it for effect, use Styrofoam for bath bubbles, and sea shells for lavatory basins. In the Koons’ living room there is a special house they decorate for seasons. They have displayed Easter, Christmas, summer activities and the ikairth of July scenes^. Jennifer attends Jackson Heights Middle School, Allison goes to Par-tin Elementary School. Kathy teaches German and geometry at Winter Springs High School. Dad Keith is a music professor at the University of Central Florida. (from “Family Magazine”, April 2000) It CQ>\ Read the article again for more details and say which of the two ^ is right. 1. The article is written by a man/a woman.V^ V/' 2. The journalist has interviewed the Koonses/never met them but saw their works. 3.

Malcolm’s Story (After Paul Jennings) Well I came top of the class again. One hundred out of one hundred for Maths. And one hundred out of one hundred for English. There isn’t one kid in the class who can come near me. Next to me they are all dumb. Even when I was a baby I was smart. Since then I have always been very advanced for my age. Every year I win a lot of prizes: top of the class, top of the school, stuff like that. I won a prize for spelling when I was only three years old. I am a terrific speller. If you can say it, I can spell it. I can spell every word there is. Some kids don’t like me; I know that for a fact. They say I’m a show-off. I don’t care. They are just jealous because they are not as clever as me. Last week something had happened. Another kid got one hundred out of one hundred for Maths too. That never happened before — no one had ever done as well as me. A kid called Jerome Dadian beat me. He must have cheated.^ I was sure he cheated. It had something to do with that ice cream. I decided to find out what was going on. Ш ’ He must have cheated. — Он, должно быть, списывал (жульничал). 28 UNIT 1 scratch It all started with the ice cream man, Mr Peppi. nail The old fool had a van which he parked outside the school. He sold ice cream, all different types. He had every flavour there is, and some that I had never heard of before. He didn’t like me very much. He told me off once. “Go to the back of the queue,” he said. “You pushed in.” “Mind your own business, Pop,^” I told him. “Just hand over the ice cream.” “No,” he said. “I won’t serve you unless you go to the back.” I went round to the back of the van, but I didn’t get in the queue. I took out a nail and made a long scratch on his rotten old van. He had just had it painted. Peppi came and had a look. Tears came into his eyes. “You are a bad boy,” he said. “One day you will get into trouble. You think you are smart. One day you will be too smart.” I just laughed and walked off. I knew he wouldn’t do anything. He was too soft-hearted. He was always giving free ice creams to kids that had no money. The silly fool. - There were a lot of stories going round about that ice cream. People said that it was good for you. Some kids said that it made you better when you were sick. One of the teachers called it “Happy Ice Cream”. I didn’t believe it; it never made me happy. All the same, there was something strange about it. Take Pimples Peterson for example. That wasn’t his real name — I just called him that because he had a lot of pimples. One day Peppi heard me calling Pimples that name and gave Peterson a purple coloured ice cream. “Here, eat this,” he said. “I £im giving it to you for nothing. It will help you get rid of your pimples.” I laughed and laughed. Ice cream doesn’t get rid of pimples, it gives you pimples. Anyway, the next day when Peterson came to school he had no pimples. Not one. I couldn’t believe it. The ice cream had cured his pimples. torch Pop — папаша {AmE) 29 UNIT 1 I made up my mind to put a stop to this ice cream business. Jerome Dadian had been eating ice cream the day he got one hundred for Maths. It must have been the ice cream making him smart. I wasn’t going to have anyone doing as well as me. I was the smartest kid in the school, and that’s the way I wanted it to stay. I wanted to get a look inside that ice cream van to find out what was going on. I knew where Peppi kept his van at night. So at about eleven o’clock I crept out of the house. There was no one around when I reached the van. I opened the door with a crowbar and shone my torch around inside. I had never seen so many tubs of ice cream before. There was every kind of ice cream you could think of: tasting of apple and banana, cherry and mango, blackberry and watermelon, and about fifty other flavours. Right at the end of the van were four bins with locks on them. I went over and had a look. These were his special flavours. Each of them had writing on the top. This is what they said: Happy Ice Cream for cheering people up. Nose Ice Cream for long noses. Pimple Ice Cream for removing pimples. Smart Ice Cream for smart alecks. mango # blackberry cherry watermelon lock Now I knew his secret. I decided to fix Peppi up once and for all and put sand into every bin in the van. But first I ate some Smart Ice Cream. It couldn’t do any harm. Not that I needed it — I was already about as smart as you could get. Anyway, I gave it a try. I left the van and went home to bed, but I couldn’t sleep. To tell the truth, I didn’t feel too good. So I decided to write this. It iz the nekst day now. Somefing iz hapening to me. I don't feal quite az smart. I have bean trying to do a reel hard sum. It iz wun and wun. Wot duz wun and wun make? Iz it free or iz it for? 30 __________________________________________________UNIT 1 i Imagine that you are Malcolm and answer these questions on his part. 1.

A Some great discoveries are made accidentally. In Egypt in 1799, a French army officer was walking slowly. He looked down, saw a highly unusual stone, and examined it quite carefully. The large, rather flat stone was partially buried in the mud. It was quickly pulled from the mud and very thoroughly cleaned. Inscriptions in three languages had been painstakingly carved on the stone. The very first inscription was in ancient Egyptian. The second inscription was in somewhat later Egyptian language. The third was in a more familiar language, Greek. The message was identically stated in the three languages. Ancient Egyptian writing had previously puzzled scholars. The easily readable Greek finally gave them the needed key. Eventually, the ancient Egyptian writing was translated. Now scholars can read the language fairly easily. Today, the historically important Rosetta Stone is permanently displayed in London’s British Museum.

Hogwarts (After Joanne K. Rowling) Harry Potter is the main character in the series of books by Joanne K. Rowling. We first meet him in the book “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone". At the beginning Harry thinks he is an ordinary boy until he finds out that he is a wizard. Being a wizard, he is enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The text below describes Harry's arrival at the school. He and his new friend Ron meet their new teachers and get to know their new surroundings. He also realizes that he is quite a legendary figure among the pupils and the staff who heard about him before. scar “There, look.” “Where?” “Next to the tall kid with the red hair.” “Wearing the glasses?” “Did you see his face?” “Did you see his scar?” Whispers followed Harry from the moment he left his dormitory next day. People queuing outside classrooms stood on tiptoe to get a look at him. Harry wished they wouldn’t, because he was trying to concentrate on finding his way to classes. There were a hundred and forty-two staircases at Hogwarts: wide ones; narrow ones; some that led somewhere different on a Friday; some with a vanishing step halfway up that you had to remember to jump. Then there were doors that wouldn’t open unless you asked politely, or tickled them in exactly the right place, and doors that weren’t really doors at all, but solid walls just pretending. It was also very hard to remember where anything was, because it all seemed to move around a lot. The people in the portraits kept going to visit each other and Harry was sure the coats of armour could walk. staircase * Hogwarts ['hogwats] coats of armou 76 UNIT 2 The caretaker of the school was called Argus Filch. Harry and Ron managed to get on the wrong side of him on their very first morning. Filch found them trying to force their way through a door which unluckily turned out to be the entrance to a corridor where pupils were not allowed. He wouldn’t believe they were lost, was sure they were trying to break into it on purpose and was threatening to lock them in the dungeons^ when they were rescued by Professor Quirrell, who was passing. And then, once you had managed to find them, there were the lessons themselves. There was a lot more to magic, as Harry quickly .found out, than waving your wand and saying a few funny words. They had to study the night skies through their telescopes every Wednesday at midnight and learn the names of different stars and the movements of the planets. Three times a week they went out to the greenhouses behind the castle to study Hebrology, with an elderly little witch called Professor Sprout, where they learnt how to take care of all the strange plants and fungi ['fAi^gi:] and found out what they were used for. Easily the most boring lesson was History of Magic, which was the only class taught by a ghost. Professor Binns had been very old indeed when he had fallen asleep in front of the staff-room fire and got up next morning to teach, leaving his body behind him. Binns droned on and on while they scribbled down names and dates. Professor Flitwick, the Charms teacher, was a tiny little wizard who had to stand on a pile of books to see over his desk. At the start of their first lesson he took the register, and when he reached Harry’s name he gave an excited squeak and fell off his pile of books. Professor McGonagall was again different. Harry had been quite right to think she wasn’t a teacher to cross. Strict and clever, she gave them a talking-to the moment they had sat down in her first class. “Transfiguration is some of the most complex and dangerous magic you will learn at Hogwarts,” she said. “Anyone messing around in my class will leave and not come back. You have been warned.” fungus dungeon ['dAncfean] — подземелье, темница fungi needle 77 UNIT 2 _____________________________________________________ Then she changed her desk into a pig and back again. They were all very impressed and couldn’t wait to get started, but soon realized they were not going to be changing the furniture into animals for a long time. After making a lot of complicated notes, they were all given a match and started trying to turn it into a needle. By the end of the lesson, only Her-mione Granger had made any difference to her match; Professor McGon-agall showed the class how it had gone all silver and pointy and gave Her-mione a rare smile. Harry was very relieved to find out that he wasn’t miles behind everyone else. Lots of people had come from ordinary families and, like him, hadn’t had any idea that they were witches and wizards. There was so much to learn that even people like Ron, whose mother was a witch, didn’t have much of a head start. A. See how well you remember the text.

Young Robert go^ Kis education at the lo^t^^'^cliool (where he was an excellent English scholar) and supplemented‘it by continuous reading. Evenings would find him reading by candlelight or writing poems with his 88 LI ао ________________________________________________UNIT 2 plough-hardened hands. He wrote about what he knew intimately: the flowering fields and birds singing in the trees, the life of Scottish peasants and the cares and ecstasies of his own heart. Perhaps his best poems are songs of love and nature and his moving often humorous narratives of the joys and mishaps of humble life. , At the age of twenty-seven Robert Burns published a volume of his jp66try. To his зитр:Йё‘ё it was a success and he went to Edinburgh to arrange for a s^c6^nd ed^Jipn. In Edinb^U’^h Burns became a celebrated* • figure among nis admiring readers. *^l&ut Bu^S; Imew that his social success in Edinburgh^wouldn’t last long and, returned to the world that he knew so well. He to^ the ppst.-pf gjo^rniherit inspector for the region around Dumfries and combinated ^is new dut^s with farming and writing poetry. At Dumfries, married to the sweetheart of his youth Jean Armour, he spent the last years of his life. He died at the early age of thirty-seven. His best known songs date from these final years.r ... ""Auld Lang Syne” is one of Burns’s most widely known works. It is sung by British people when they celebrate the beginning of the new year at 12 o’clock on December 31st and on other important occ^ions. ^ A. Listen to the song (No 14) and sing it aiong.

These are both very large department stores. Of course there are many other department stores which exist in most British towns. Q_________________________________________? — The John Lewis Stores is one of them, Marks and Spencer is another. In London a lot of the best department stores are in Oxford Street which is famous for its shopping. □_________________________________________? — Because of competition from the Far East and the cheapness of these products, the profitability of many large department stores is in danger and C&A is one of them. By the way we used to call it “Coats and *Ats”.’ Now that’s a joke. Talking seriously the company is reassessing its priorities, is rethinking its future plans. A decision has been made recently to withdraw from the High Street. As you know the High Street is an area where the shops are and where goods are sold. □-----------------------------------------? — To withdraw in this case means to retreat or to leave the commercial area and therefore to close the shopping outlet. So, it is possible to say that C&A are closing down. В-----------------------------------------? — Currently many people use large or small supermarkets whether they have a car or not. Some people use public transport — buses — to take them to and from the supermarkets. It does mean however that the shopper usually has a lot of heavy shopping to take home with him on the bus. A car is much more useful. — Nothing. A lot of shopping is still done at the small corner shops — small shops on the corner of the street. The small corner shops can often sell more specialized goods which a supermarket does not stock. For example, one prefers freshly baked bread and cakes from the baker’s or one prefers the professionally hutched meat from the butcher’s. He may also make his own sausages. Some people would go to the florist’s for bunches of flowers rather than buy pre-selected flowers in the supermarket. Q____________________________________________? — Tesco is the largest followed by Sainsbury’s^ then it is ASDA which means ’’Associated Dairies'’’ and the fourth one is John Lewis. So there are the four major supermarkets. C&A = “Coats and ’Ats” (’Ats = hats) 100 It ___________ ___________________________ UNIT 3 Complete these sentences. Use the interview (Ex. 15). 1.

UNIT 3 ^Reading for Information II Read the text about money once and say what things make mon- ey valuable. What Makes Money Valuable? We use money every day to pay for things we buy. We pay with either coins or paper money. This sort of money is known as cash. There is also another kind of money. It includes checks,^ credit cards, and travellers’ checks. ^ The idea of having such a thing as money is one of the most fascinating ever developed by man. But many people don’t know where this idea came from, or why money is valuable. Thousands of years ago, money was not used. Instead, man had the “barter” system. This meant that if a man wanted something he didn’t have, he had to find someone who had it. Then he had to offer him something in exchange. And if that man didn’t like what he was offered in exchange, the first man couldn’t get what he needed. In time, certain things came to be used as money because practically everyone would take these things in exchange. In the past, people used shells, beads, cocoa beans, salt, grain, tobacco, skins, and even cattle. But coins are much easier to use than, say, cattle. They are easy to store and to carry about. Coins were first used in China. They were also used by ancient Greeks as early as 600 BC. They were first made of either gold or silver. They were stamped with the mark of the government Ъг the ruler of the country for which they were made. The stamp also showed how much each coin was worth. Later, people began to use coins made of cheaper metals. The metal itself had no value, but the coins were still worth the amount stamped on them. People also started to use paper money. It no longer mattered that the money itself had no real value. It was backed by the government and banks. This is the kind of money we use today. Today, of course, we have bills and coins issued by the government, and everybody uses this money. What makes money valuable? What use does it have for us? There are four.main things that money does for you. ‘ checks (AmE) = cheques (BrE) * Travellers’ (traveller’s) checks are checks that you buy at a bank and take with you when you travel abroad, so that you can exchange them for the money issued in this country. 103. UNIT 3_______________________________________________________ First, it makes possible exchange and trade. Imagine you want a bicycle. You’re willing to work for it by mowing lawns. But the person for whom you mow the lawn has no bicycles. He pays you with money and you take this to the bicycle shop and buy your bicycle. Money made it possible to exchange your work for something you wanted. Second, money is a “yardstick of value”. This means money may be used to measure and compare the values of various things. You’re willing to mow the lawn for an hour for 50 cents. A bicycle costs $25. You now have an idea of the value of a bicycle in terms of your work. Third, money is a “storehouse of value”. You can’t store up your tomatoes for a long time, because they can spoil. But if you sell them you can store up the money for future use. Fourth, money serves as a “standard for future payments”. You pay 5 dollars down on the bicycle and promise to pay the rest later. You will not pay in eggs or tomatoes or baseballs. You and the bicycle store owner have agreed on exactly what you pay later. You use money as a form in which later payments can be made. II Read the text “What Makes Money Valuable?” again and say which of these statements are ‘true’ and which are ‘false’. l.Cash is coins, paper money and checks. 2. The barter system means exchanging one thing for another. 3. Coins are very handy and easier to use than tobacco, skins or cattle. 4. Coins were first used by ancient Greeks. 5. The Greek coins were stamped with a special mark that said how much they were worth. 6. Paper money itself has no real value. 7. Nowadays bills and coins are issued and backed by the government. 8. Money makes exchange and trade possible. 9. Money is seldom used to measure and compare values of things. 10. Money is a “storehouse of value” means that you can save money instead of saving things. 11. Money serves as a “standard for future payments” means that you can promise to pay for a thing in future, but don’t pay anything now.

Which would you like to go to?” Both were famous Public Schools, but that was all I knew about them. “Repton,” I said. “I’ll go to Repton.” It was an easier word to say than Marlborough. “Very well,” my mother said. “You’ll go to Repton.” We were living in Kent then. Repton was up in the Midlands, near Derby ['dcrbi], and some 140 miles away to the north. On the day of my departure, I had to get dressed for the part. I had been to London with my mother the week before to buy the school clothes, and I remember, how shocked I was when I saw the outfit I was expected to wear. “I can’t possibly go about in thosel” I cried. “Nobody wears things like that!” haven’t made a mistake?” my mother said to the “Are you sure shop assistant. you tailcoat waistcoat straw hat “If he’s going to Repton, madam, he must wear these clothes,” the assistant said firmly. And now this amazing fancy dress was all laid out on my bed waiting to be put on. “Put it"bn,” my mother said. “Hurry up or you’ll miss the train.” stud collar laces braces Ж sleeve butte buttonhole __________________________________________________UNIT 3 “ГИ look like a complete idiot,” I said. My mother went out of the room and left me to it. With immense reluctance I began to dress. First there was a white shirt with a detachable white collar. To attach the collar to the shirt you needed a back stud and a front stud. It took me ages to get the studs through the slits of the collar starched stiff. I tried for all I was worth but they just wouldn’t go. Finally I put both the front slits of the collar into my mouth and chewed them until they were soft and at last I was able to get the studs through the collar slits. Around the collar I tied a black tie, using an ordinary tie knot. Then came the trousers and the braces. The trousers were black with thin grey lines running down them. I buttoned the braces on to the trousers, six buttons in all, then I put on the trousers and fixed the braces to the correct length. I put on a brand new pair of black shoes and laced them up. Now for the waistcoat. This was also black and it had twelve buttons down the front and two little waistcoat pockets on either side, one above the other. I put it on and did up the buttons, starting at the top and working down. I was glad I didn’t have to chew each of those buttonholes to get the buttons through them. All this was bad enough for a boy who had never before worn anything better than a pair of shorts and a blazer. But the jacket put the lid on it. It wasn’t actually a jacket, it was a sort of tailcoat, and it was without a doubt the most ridiculous garment I had ever seen. Like the waistcoat, it was jet black and made of a heavy material. In the front the two sides of it met only at one point. Here there was a single button and this had to be done up. From the button downwards, the lines of the coat separated and came together again at the backs of the knees, forming a pair of “tails”. When you walked, these tails flapped against your legs. I put the thing on and did up the front button. Feeling like an undertaker’s apprentice in a funeral parlour,^ I crept downstairs. My sisters shrieked with laughter when I appeared. “He can’t go out in thosel” they cried. “He’ll be arrested by the police!” “Put your hat on,” my mother said, handing me a stiff wide-brimmed straw hat with a blue and black band around it. I put it on and did my best to look dignified. The sisters fell all over the room laughing. My mother got me out of the house before I lost my nerve completely and together we walked through the village to the station. “Nobody’s taking the slightest notice of you,” my mother said as we walked through High Street. And curiously enough nobody was. an undertaker’s apprentice [s'prentis] in a funeral parlour ['pcrla] — младший служагций похоронного бюро 125^ UNIT 3 _____________________________________________________ “I have learnt one thing about England,” my mother went on. “It’s a country where men love to wear uniforms and eccentric clothes. Two hundred years ago their clothes were even more eccentric than they are today. Think how lucky you are. You don’t have to wear a wig^ on your head and ruffles^ on your sleevesi” “I still feel an ass,” I said. A. Match the phrases in English with their Russian equivalents.

Here are some of the arguments that you may use. Pros a uniform disciplines you feel that you belong to a certain group it’s easy to say to which school a child goes to schoolchildren don’t envy each other schoolchildren can concentrate on work rather than on their classmates’ clothes Cons when everyone wears the same clothes you can’t express your individuality you have to wear the same things every day and it’s boring you have to wear a uniform even if it isn’t becoming (if you don’t look good in it) your peer^ who don’t have to wear a uniform may laugh at you ^Di/cu//ing the Topic Topical VocABUiARY I. Life in the modern world is unthinkable without banks and their services. Sooner or later we all come to a bank either at home or abroad and there we all speak the language of banking. A lot of people go to the bank to borrow money. Then the bank: • lends you money • loans money • asks for guarantees • checks your credit • charges some money for its services And you: • pay the money back on time and try not to get yourself into debt Very often you put your money in the bank to save it. If you do that you: • open a bank account (current or savings) • fill in/out a form and sign it (up) • pay in a certain sum of money * a peer [pia] — ровесник 130 ___________________________________________________UNIT 3 • become an account holder • get a bank card • get a cheque (check) book • take some money out of the bank or withdraw it from the bank • use the bank’s cash point • get 3 per cent interest Some of the other things that a bank can do for you are: • change your money/give you change for your money • exchange your money (at a certain rate of exchange) • sell your traveller’s cheques • cash your cheques II. Probably the best way to spend your money is to go shopping. Among thousands of things that you can buy in a modern shopping centre are: • ready-made clothes • stationery • fashion clothes • books • footwear • hi-fi • children’s wear • musical instruments • jewellery/jewelry {AmE) • sportswear • home furnishings • tableware • fabrics • gifts and souvenirs • food and drinks • cosmetics and perfume • toys III. Coming to the shop you become a customer. Customers usually: • look about • ask the assistant for help • find out the price and if there’s any discount (reduction) • try a thing on • choose the right size, model, and colour • make a purchase ['paitjss] or purchase things • buy a thing on credit • pay by cheque or by card • pay (in) cash • get the change 131 UNIT 3 IV. As for the shop assistants they: • welcome you • ask you if they can help • help you to choose the right thing • show you where the fitting rooms are • lead you to the cash desk • accept your payment • give you your change and a receipt • wrap (up) your purchase or put it into a plastic bag • explain to you anything that you need to know V. Shops are ideal places to spend your money. Modern shopping centres do their best to prove to you that shopping may be fun. That’s why they tend to combine shopping and leisure.^ A modern shopping centre often looks like a city under one roof where you can find: department/variety stores shops and their outlets theme parks with rides, amusements and games cinemas restaurants, food courts, cafeterias [ДаеГэЧюпэг] and cafes ['kaefeiz] information desks banks opticians photo services hair and beauty salons ['saelnnz] post offices travel agencies car parks car washes petrol stations VI.

Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass. No time to see, in broad daylight. Streams full of stars, like skies at night. No time to turn at Beauty’s glance, And watch her feet, how they can dance. No time to wait till her mouth can Enrich that smile her eyes began. A poor life this is if, full of care. We have no time to stand and stare.

People used to think that the closer you went to the Siin, the hotter it would be. But as hot air rises it expands and cools, so the higher you go the colder it is. Air cools by 3°C for every 305 m it rises. This is why the tops of mountains are cold. 2. The first successful submarine was built in the 1620s by a Dutch inventor, Cornelius van Drebbel. It had a wooden frame covered in greased leather and was rowed along with 12 oars [d;z]. The biggest submarines today are Russian nuclear submarines. Larger than passenger liners, they can stay under for two years without refueling. 3. There is less oxygen the higher up you go. Mountain people and animals can live at great heights because they have bigger hearts and lungs, which carry more blood, and therefore more oxygen. Quechua Indians live 3 650 m up in the Andes ['aendiiz], where they grow potatoes and corn, and herd sheep. 4. The human race is about to enter a new age of travelling and living in space. Shuttles will one day make journeys into space as common as ordinary airplane flights today.

For both the multiple telegraph and the telephone. The Man and His Work The story is told that in 1870 one of the experts at the US Patent Office left his job because he felt that everything had been invented and there was no future in it. . It happened at the time when the telephone, the radio, and television had not yet been invented. And when Edison gave the world the electric light, his invention paved the way to the immense use of electricity in the 144 UNIT 4 20th century. The 20th century also gave us the automobile, the airplane, the helicopter, the cinema, the computer and the nuclear reactor. Two world wars helped to develop the chemical industry to the level that allowed to produce synthetics and other scientific marvels. Some people believe that inventions occur as the need arises. From this point of view, someone else might have invented the telephone. As it happened, it was Alexander Graham Bell. Born in Scotland, Bell spent his youth in England. His grandfather and father were elocution teachers. While the family lived in England, the parents moved in scientific circles, where experiments were being carried out on the human voice. Alexander and his brother became interested in the subject. They made a puppet with throat organs based on those of the human being and experimented with reproducing the human voice. Alexander became interested, too, in experimenting with a multiple telegraph that could send more than one message at a time. It was through his interest in this field that he invented the telephone years later. After graduating from the University of London, Alexander was a teacher of the deaf. The family moved to America where Alexander’s father had been asked to read lectures. They emigrated to Canada and settled in Ontario. Within a few months, Alexander accepted a teaching position with the Boston School for the Deaf and left for Massachusetts. In the course of his efforts to perfect a multiple telegraph. Bell had invented a little machine, that he had used in teaching the deaf. It was a cylinder with a membrane stretched across one end and a stylus (a thin stick) attached to the membrane. When someone spoke into a cylinder, the membrane vibrated and the stylus traced a zigzag line on smoked glass. This little machine that he called the phonautograph, gave him a key to the invention of the telephone. Bell took on an assistant, Thomas A. Watson, who knew about electricity a lot more than Bell did. The two men were working on the multiple telegraph, when Bell’s idea for the telephone came to him. In 1876 when Bell showed his first model of the telephone, it was still a rather simple instrument. This was the year of the Centennial, that celebrated the first hundred years of progress in the United States. To celebrate the event they organized a big exhibition in Philadelphia. Bell, who thought that his invention wasn’t quite ready, rather reluctantly agreed to exhibit it. The telephone receiver was connected with the transmitter across the room. One of the distinguished guests, the Emperor of Brazil, asked Bell to demonstrate his machine. Leaving the Emperor at the receiver the inven- 145^ UNIT 4 __________________________________________________________ tor went to the transmitter on the other side of the room and started reciting Hamlet’s monologue “To be or not to be” into it. The shocked and amazed Emperor soon rushed to Bell with the tails of his formal coat flapping. “It talks,” he cried. The other judges gathered about and took turns listening. Bell’s invention was immediately called the greatest of the time. Alexander Graham Bell received the Centennial prize awards for both the multiple telegraph and the telephone. In his memoirs Bell wrote: “I went to bed, the night before, an unknown man, and awoke to find myself famous.” ' ^ \/|J In the text “The Man and His Work” there are a lot of international words the meanings of which are easy to guess.

What kind of war is described at the beginning of the text? 2. What are the advantages of the new virtual technology? 3. Do we have answers to all questions connected with virtual reality? 4. What in virtual technologies may turn out to be dangerous: a) for their users generally, b) in science, c) in training? 5. What may happen to human ethics and morality as a result of using virtual technologies? Virtual Reality: Danger Ahead? Virtual reality is an environment in which computers create the effect of a world which seems almost completely real to the people in it. War has begun. You are seated in an M-1 tank simulator. A head display is fixed over your eyes. As you sit, the display flashes computer-generated images of the battle field into each eye. You look around. The helmet with the help of sensors picks up your eye and head movements and sends them to the computer, which changes the scene. An enemy tank fires from the south. You use the controls and your tank “moves”. When the fighting is over you know how many soldiers are “killed” and how many tanks are “destroyed”. If your result isn’t impressive, don’t worry. You will work at warfare until you get right. Welcome to virtual reality, the technology that allows users to interact with computer-simulated images and some day may offer getting into make-believe worlds. In today’s virtual worlds people can do a lot of things and their advantages — both real and potential — are clear. Doctors j practise operations on different parts of human body, students learn somef > geography and history by “walking” into the places they are interested in, tourists take far-away trips to other countries etc. J Less clear, though, are possible side effects on individuals, groups of people and/or society itself. Will virtual reality (VR) be the new television? How will virtual trips (journeys) effect our minds, judgment and relationships? Will virtual reality make us better people? Will it make us worse? Critics of VR say that this sort of technology without careful regulation Will be nothing more than a high-tech instrument for spreading violence, pornography and advertising. Already, they say, a lot of VR 147^ UNIT 4_______________________—______-________________________ programmes are exercises in killing rather than in thinking. Many scientists see some truth in this. Some of them say: “A strong concern of ours with virtual technologies is the use of violence, especially because the . realism of simulators is getting better and better.” Some psychologists Vf warn that for the young and mentally ill virtual trips could be very dan-■ gerous because after such trips they mix up the real world with the virtual one. As virtual models that scientists design become more and more realistic, people may start believing these models to be true and forgetting to go to the real world to see if it is really so. In science, this tendency can lead to wrong conclusions. In training it could result in unpreparedness for risky situations. The pilot trained on a plane model that is realistic, but not true, for example, would be ready for a virtual flight, but not a real one. Perhaps the biggest question of all is what virtual reality will mean for human ethics and morality. There is a danger that traditional morality will break down in virtual worlds. There is no chance of hurting another person in the world of VR and so the feeling of immorality will be taken away. Nothing in a virtual world ever will be believed immoral, anything will go: no harm, no damage. ^ So, what is the final word on virtual reality? It can be a curse or a blessing. In the end this new technology will be what we make it.

Try to remember which of the new words were used in the story “Is There Life in Space?”. ^Reading for Di/cu//ion 54 Read the text “The Surgeon” and say what makes the end of the story unexpected. The Surgeon (After Isaac Asimov) The surgeon looked up without expression. “Is he ready?” “He is nervous,” said his assistant. “They always are... Well, it’s a serious operation.” “I’ll see him in this room,” said the surgeon. “Has he made up his mind?” “Yes. He wants metal; they always do.” The surgeon’s face didn’t change expression. He stared at his hands. “Sometimes one can talk them out of it.” “Why bother?” said the assistant, indifferently. “If he wants metal, let it be metal.” “You don’t care?” 167 UNIT 4 _________________________________________________________ “Why should I? Either way it’s a medical engineering problem and I’m a medical engineer. Why should I go beyond that?” “I care. I have to try.” The surgeon pushed a small button and the door opened. The patient moved into the room in his motorchair, the nurse stepping along beside him. “You may go, nurse,” said the surgeon, “but wait outside. I will call you.” He nodded to the assistant, who left with the nurse, and the door closed behind them. The man in the chair watched them go. He looked worried and uncomfortable. He said, “Will we be starting today?” The surgeon nodded. “This afternoon.” “I understand it will take weeks.” “Not the operation itself. But there are a number of small points to take care of.” “Is it dangerous?” Then, as though trying to sound friendlier, but against his will, he added, “...doctor?” The surgeon paid no attention to this. He said calmly, “We take our time to make it less dangerous, and we already have all the required equipment. But I must ask you to make a decision. It is possible to supply you with either of two types of cyber-hearts* metal or ...” “PlasticI” said the patient irritably. “Cheap plastic. I don’t want that. I’ve made my choice. I want the metal because it is better.” “It depends on the patient. In my opinion, in your individual case, it is not. And we prefer not to call them plastic. It is a fibrous^ cyber-heart. It’s made of a polymeric material designed to imitate as closely as possible the human heart you now have in your chest.” “Exactly, and the human heart I now have in my chest is worn out, although I am not yet sixty years old. I don’t want another one like it, thank you. I want something better.” “We all want something better for you. The fibrous cyber-heart will be better. It has a potential life of centuries.” “But it does wear out. No, I want it to be metallic, doctor. What’s the matter with you? Are you afraid I’m making myself into a robot... into a Metallo, as they call them since Metallos became citizens?” “There is nothing wrong with a Metallo. As you say, they are citizens. But you’re not a Metallo. You’re a human. Why not stay a human?” “Because I want the best and that’s a metallic heart. And will you be the surgeon in charge? They tell me you’re the best.” The surgeon nodded. “Very well. I will do what I can to make the operation an easy one.” cyber hearts ['saib3,ha:ts] comes from the word cybernetics [,saiba'netiks], the scientific study of the way in which information is controlled in the machines and the brain. A cyborg ['saibo:g] is a man-like creature that is partly human and partly machine. fibrous ['faibrss] (from fibre) — the stuff parts of human body consist of 168 UNIT 4 The door opened and the chair moved the patient out to the waiting nurse. The medical engineer came in. “Well,” he said, “I can’t say what happened just by looking at you. What was his decision?” The surgeon bent over his desk, putting together some records. “What you predicted. He insists on the metallic heart. It has become a real mania with people ever since Metallos became citizens. Men have this strange desire to make Metallos out of themselves because they think that Metallos are physically strong and powerful.” “It isn’t one-sided, doc. You don’t work with Metallos but I do; so I know. The last two who came in for repairs have asked for fibrous elements... I suppose that some day we shall have Metallos that are a kind of flesh and blood, and humans half made of metal. We have two varieties of intellect on Earth now and in the near future we won’t be able to tell the difference between them. We’d have the best of both worlds; the advantages of man combined with those of robot.” “You’d get a hybrid,” said the surgeon almost angrily. “You’d get something that is not both but neither. I believe in being what one is. I wouldn’t change a bit of my own structure for any reason. I am myself; well pleased to be myself; and would not be anything else.” He had finished now and had to prepare for the operation. He placed his strong hands into the heating oven’ and kept them there until they became red-hot and completely sterilized. Though his speech had been emotional, his voice had never risen, and on its metal face there was, as always, no sign of expression. a See how well you remember the text and choose the right item. 1.

See if you can understand the words and word combinations in bold type and give their Russian equivalents. A computer is an electronic device that stores information and allows changes in it through the use of (1) instructions. A modern computer is capable of doing various tasks, like (2) word processing and (3) accounting. Personal computers (PCs) are widely used but working on them requires some techniques. After turning on the computer a (4) PC user should (5) log into the (16) network by entering their (7) user name and (8) password. Allow some time for the (9) operation system to (10) load. Soon you’ll see a (11) menu (or icons) on the monitor screen. With the help of the mouse or the keyboard choose the needed icon and start the programme. The programme allows the user to type texts, draw objects and (12) diagrams. While drawing one can (13) shape, (14) move, (15) transform, (16) copy and (17) fill objects. When creating texts we (18) format, (19) edit and copy them. Both drawings and texts can be (20) saved or (21) deleted. If you have a printer, you can (22) print the information displayed on the screen. Don’t forget to save your (23) file onto your (24) hard disk and (25) back it up onto the floppies. CD-ROMs can be used to produce images on the computer screen. The user can move around the programme by (26) clicking on different parts of the screen with a mouse. Clicking on the text will provide a new screen with more information, either in the form of text and diagrams, or as an animated cartoon. Computers give us (27) access ['aekses] to the Internet — an international computer network connecting other networks and computers from companies, universities or individuals etc. You can spend a lot of your free time (28) surfing the Internet and get all sorts of information from it. You can enter the (29) chat room with other Internet users and debate urgent problems (30) on line. If you are connectable by (31) e-mail (have an e-mail address), you can correspond with your friends or open your own (32) web page (web site) and place there information about yourself. 78 A. Explain to someone who doesn’t know it how to work on a computer and say what advantages a computer gives to a user. B. Today computers help people to do many things: — bankers use them to keep track of money; — telephone operators use them to put calls through; — without computers, weather forecasters would make more mistakes. The list of uses is long. Can you continue it? C. Say what advantages a computer gives to a user. 182 : ___________________________________________UNIT 4 People depend on computers so much that they sometimes think the machines are giant brains. But there is another point of view. Some people say: “Compared to people, computers aren’t at all smart. Computers are machines that will do only what they are told to do.” Which point of view do you share and why?

It is a map that moves faster than real, but so slow. Only my watching proves that island has being, or that bay. It is a model of time. Mountains are wearing away, coasts cracking, the ocean spills over, then new hills heap into view with river-cuts of blue between them. It is a map of change.

Ш PC .if ^ - f fi^‘ itit Canada has a population of over 30 million, about 80% of which live in the south. About three quarters of Canada’s population live in towns and cities. Canada’s largest metropolitan areas are Toronto [ta'mntou], Montreal [.montri^oil], Vancouver [vaen"ku:v9] and Ottawa. The French were the first to settle in the country in large numbers during the 17th and early 18th centuries. People of British origin came to stay there mainly after 1763, the year when the British conquered the French Colony of New France. As a result Canada has a dual cultural heritage and both French and English are official languages. Other groups of population are Germans, Italians, Ukrainians, Scandinavians, Poles, the Dutch and Eskimo (Inuits). 191 UNIT 5 Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories, each with its own capital city. French Canadians are mostly concentrated in the provinces of Quebec [kwi'bek] (capital — Quebec City) and New Brunswick ["brAnzwik] (capital — Fredericton). They have kept not only their language, but also their own culture. Both Ottawa, the country’s capital, and the largest city of Canada Toronto are situated in the province of Ontario [nn'teariau]. ЩШ The country is rich in natural resources: gas, oil, coal, gold, copper, iron ore, nickel, uranium, zinc, along with wood and water. It is one of the world’s leaders in mineral exports. Its soils, which are especially rich in the three prairie provinces of Alberta [аеИЬз:1э], Manitoba [^таешЧэиЬэ], and Saskatchewan [sae^skaetfawan] are intensively utilized and make Canada one of the world’s largest exporters of agricultural products. Forests cover about half of Canada. They are the basis for such important industries as lumbering and paper production. Forests also give home to deer and caribou, squirrels, minks, skunks, mooses, beavers, black bears and other animals. wm P 5 Canada is a constitutional monarchy. Elizabeth II, Queen of England, is also Canada’s Queen and sovereign of a number of realms. The Queen is the head of state, and is represented in Canada by the governor-general. Legislative power is vested in Parliament, which includes the Queen, the Senate of 104 appointed members and the House of Commons with about 300 elected members. National elections are held at least once every 5 years. The leader of the political party with the largest number of seats in the House of Commons usually becomes prime minister and forms the government. There are three main political parties represented in the House of Commons: they are the Liberal Party, the Progressive Conservative Party, and the New Democratic Party. n E I) ■ Each of the provinces and territories administers its own educational system. Schools are operated by local education authorities and generally give 6 to 8 years of elementary and 3 to 5 years of secondary schooling. Any child can be educated in either of the two official languages. Canada has community colleges that offer technical and vocational training and a number of universities and four-year colleges. Among the largest universities are the University of Toronto (Toronto), University of British Columbia (Vancouver), University of Alberta (Edmonton), in which the language 192 _________________________________________________ UNIT 5 of instruction is English. Prominent French language universities are the Universite de Montreal, Loval Universite, and the Universite du Quebec.

Say what makes our countries alike and different. 2Q Imagine that you work for a travel agency. How would you adver- tise a trip to Canada? 21 Use Ex. 14 В and speak about Canada. ^Reading for InformaSon ^ u 22 Read the text and say when the travellers for whom these instruc- ' tions were written lived. Expiain your choice of the time period. Etiquette ['etiket] helps the wheels of life to turn smoothly and happily. It is especially important for travellers to know how to behave both in their own country and in foreign places. 195 UNIT 5__________________________________________________________ A little knowledge enables one to give due consideration to others, to appear and to be at ease in all circumstances ['ssikamstsnsiz], to say and to do the right thing at the right time. Remember that the spirit of true courtesy ['ksUisi] does not find expression only on social occasions but in everyday affairs such as travelling in public vehicles and walking in the streets whether at home or overseas. First Rules for Travellers Money: Take one fourth more than your estimated expenses, and a good supply of small change. Geography: Acquaint yourself with the geography of the route [ru:t] and region of travel. Luggage: Arrange, if possible, to have only one piece of luggage to look after. Dress: Better be too hot for two or three hours at noon than be cold for the rest of the twenty-four. Time: Be at the place of starting fifteen minutes before time, thus allowing for unexpected detention by the way. Breakfast: Do not begin a day’s travel before breakfast, even if it has to be eaten at daybreak. Dinner or supper can be more easily ignored than a good breakfast. Manners: Respect yourself by demonstrating the manners of a gentleman or lady, and then you will receive the respect of others. Language: A good knowledge of the language of the country you are to visit is an immense help and will make the journey more agreeable. Climate: No special considerations may be necessary when travelling to moderate climates or on short journeys, but for longer journeys and to tropical climates it is important to have tropical clothes as part of your hand luggage. The traveller’s comfort depends on his dress being suitable to the climate he is in. Packing: Always allow ample time for packing. See to it that every piece of luggage is properly labelled and that all labels previously used are removed. The principal point to remember in packing is to leave the things you are most likely to require, during the journey or on arrival, until last. If you carry a handbag, small portmanteau [,pD:t'maent9u] or hold-all, they should be put in these. Trains: This new mode of transport should not be feared. It is safer to ride on the railroad than to walk through the streets. It is unwritten law that the passengers occupying the window seats facing the engine have “charge” of the windows. There is no reason why you would not ask one of the window seat passengers if he would object to a window being opened. 196 _________________________________________ UNIT 5 Make-up: It is not a correct thing to do to make up while travelling. Many girls prefer not to show too openly how much the rosy of their cheeks owes to art instead of nature. It’s not right for young men to use a comb or nail-file in public places. Lost: If you are lost, use your watch. Point the hour to the sun and the south is exactly half way between the hour and the figure 12 on the watch. For instance, suppose it is 4 o’clock, point the hand indicating 4 to the sun and 2 on the watch will be exactly south. Journal: Many experienced voyagers keep a journal while they are travelling. A well kept journal acts as a remembrancer for years to come. Be sure to pack inks, nibs, blotters and note pads. 23 Read the text (Ex. 22) again and choose one of the titles for the instructions above. Explain your choice. a) PROS AND CONS OF TRAVELLING b) TRAVELLERS GUIDE BOOK c) PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR THE TRAVELLER 24 0^ •'? each paragraph of the text (Ex. 22) one sentence is missing. Find the right paragraphs for the sentences below. 1. Several maps of the place where you are going can be handy. 2. It is better to wait for extra 15 minutes than to miss your train or coach. Besides, everyone knows: “First come, first served.” 3. An umbrella is essential for any climate. 4. Pack a good writing case. 5. Try and learn at least some minimum vocabulary to be able to show your politeness. 6. Remember: travelling light is faster and much easier. 7. Don’t limit yourself to a cup of tea and a sandwich. Eat something filling. 8. Consider the comfort of your clothes before elegance and don’t pay too much attention to change in fashion. 9. Every watch is a compass. 10. There are usually separate carriages reserved for ladies who need to travel alone. 11. You may be expected to tip porters at railway stations and hotels. 12. Good manners are a letter of recommendation. 13. When packing remember the saying: “A little method is worth a great deal of memory.” 14. A vanity case anyhow is one of the most important things on a journey. 197 IS UNIT 5____________________________________ in the text (Ex. 22) find equivalents for these: 1) свободно чувствовать себя при любых обстоятельствах; 2) дух истинной галантности (вежливости); 3) предполагаемые расходы; 4) маршрут и место путешествия; 5) непредвиденные задержки; 6) на рассвете; 7) заслужить уважение других; 8) сделать путешествие более приятным; 9) особое внимание; 10) достаточное время; 11) не следует бояться; 12) по ходу поезда; 13) иметь окна «в своем распоряжении»; 14) возражать против того, чтобы окно было открыто; 15) насколько румянец щек является естественным, а не созданным с помощью косметики; 16) пилочка для ногтей; 17) направьте часовую стрелку, указывающую на цифру 4, на солнце; 18) вести дневник; 19) напоминание 'New Language ^Grammar /ection I.

Dialogue Margaret: Bryan, could you help me, please? I’m going to Oxford Street. I’d be very grateful if you could explain how to get there. Bryan: If I were you, I would take the underground. The nearest underground station here is Tooting Broadway. It’s just round the corner. You see, it’s my first journey in the London Underground. I hear that it’s rather confusing. Do you think I’ll manage? I’m sure you will. Just take your time and look at the signs. Use this underground map. It may turn out to be helpful. Oh, thank you. Where is Tooting Broadway? Here, almost at the bottom of the map, nearly at the end of the Northern Line. Can you see it? Yes, I can. So, if I take a train at Tooting Broadway, where do I travel? Your destination is Tottenham Court Road. It’s here where the black and the red lines cross. But you must make sure that the train will pass through Tottenham Court Road, as some of the trains, those which go to Edgware ["ефуеэ], don’t. How can I make sure? There’s a television screen at each station which says where the train is going. You need a train going to High Barnet or Mill Hill East. That really sounds easy. I won’t have to change trains or platforms. Thank you very much for the directions and for the map. Oh, there’s a text on the other side. {Margaret reads.) The Underground There are more than 250 Underground stations in London and its suburbs. In the centre of London you are never likely to be more than a few minutes from one of them. Stations are indicated by an illuminated London Transport symbol. Look at your Underground map to decide your journey. You must buy your ticket before travelling, either from a ticket machine or a ticket office. You cannot buy books of tickets, but the special tourist tickets may well save your time and trouble. Trains run frequently until about 00.15 (Sundays 23.30) from the central area. Make sure you wait on the correct platform for your destination, and choose your train by the indicator on the platform or the front of the train. It is important to know the final destination of the train you want, because from some platforms trains leave for several different destinations. Please ask one of the station staff if you are lost.

I say, Bryan, it mentions tourist tickets. What are they? These tickets give you 4 or 5 days’ unlimited travel on all of London’s Red Buses and in the Underground. You can visit every place of interest in London without worrying about the different tickets or unfamiliar money. I’m afraid that won’t be of much use in my case: I’m leaving London the day after tomorrow. Then I would advise buying a travel card. What’s a travel card? A travel card permits the purchaser to travel by bus, underground or main line train for any numbers of journeys from 9.30 a.m. until midnight on the day of purchase. It is an excellent way to travel in the London area for an average tourist, as it is convenient and helps you to save your money. Where can I buy a travel card? It is on sale at all railway and underground stations and in certain small shops, usually news agencies. They have a special sign on the door. B. Fill in the missing information. 4f Study the map of the London Underground (Ex. 48) and say: ^214 1. To get from Tooting Broadway to Tottenham Court Road (by underground) you use the ... Line. 2.

Going to Norway (After Roald Dahl) The summer holidays! Those magic words! The very mention of them used to thrill me. All my summer holidays, from when I was four years old to when I was seventeen (1920 to 1932), were totally idyllic. This, I am certain, was because we always went to the same idyllic place and that place was Norway. Except for my half-sister and half-brother, the rest of us were all pure Norwegian by blood. We all spoke Norwegian and all our relations lived over there. So in a way, going to Norway every summer was like going home. We were always an enormous party. There were my three sisters and my half-sister (that’s four), and my half-brother and me (that’s six), and my mother (that’s seven), and Nanny (that’s eight), and in addition to these, there were never less than two of my half-sister’s friends (that’s ten altogether). Looking back on it now, I don’t know how my mother did it. There were all those train bookings and boat bookings and hotel bookings to be made in advance by letter. She had to make sure that we had enough 222 UNIT 5 rails deck-chair prorлenade deck lifeboat quayside harbour funnel shorts and shirts and sweaters and gymshoes and bathing costumes (you couldn’t even buy a shoelace on the island we were going to), and the packing must have been a nightmare. Six huge trunks were carefully packed, as well as countless suitcases, and when the great departure day arrived, the ten of us, together with our mountains of luggage, would set out on the first and easiest step of the journey, the train to London. When we arrived in London, we got into three taxis and went clattering across the great city to King’s Cross, where we got on to the train for Newcastle, two hundred miles to the north. The trip to Newcastle took about five hours, and when we arrived there, we needed three more taxis to take us from the station to the docks, where our boat would be waiting. The next stop after that would be Oslo ["nzlou], the capital of Norway. When I was young, the capital of Norway was not called Oslo. It was called Christiania [,kristi:'8enj3]. But somewhere along the line, the Norwegians decided to do away with that pretty name and call it Oslo instead. As children, we always knew it as Christiania, but if I call it that here, we shall only get confused, so I had better call it Oslo all the way through. The sea journey from Newcastle to Oslo took two days and a night, and if it was rough, as it often was, all of us got seasick except our fearless mother. We used to lie in deck-chairs on the promenade deck, within easy reach of the rails, our faces green refusing the hot soup and ship’s biscuits' the kindly steward kept offering us. And as for poor Nanny, she began to feel sick the moment she set foot on deck. “I hate these things!” ship’s biscuits — галеты 223. UNIT 5 _______________________________________________________ she used to say. “I’m sure we’ll never get therel Which lifeboat do we go to when it starts to sink?’’ Then she would retire^ to her cabin, where she stayed groaning and trembling until the ship was firmly tied up at the quayside in Oslo harbour the next day. We always stopped off for one night in Oslo so that we could have a grand annual reunion with our Grandmother and Grandfather, our mother’s parents. When we got off the boat, we all went in a cavalcade of taxis straight to the Grand Hotel to drop off our luggage. Then, keeping the same taxis, we drove on to the grandparents’ house, where an emotional welcome awaited us. All of us were embraced and kissed many times and tears flowed down wrinkled old cheeks and suddenly that quiet gloomy house came alive with many children’s voices. The next morning, everyone got up early and eager to continue the journey. There was another full day’s travelling to be done before we reached our final destination, most of it by boat. We loved this part of our journey. The nice little vessel with its single tall funnel would move out into the calm waters of the fjord. Unless you have sailed down the Oslofjord like this yourself on a lovely summer’s day, you cannot imagine what it is like. It is impossible to describe the feeling of absolute peace and beauty that surrounds you. The boat winds its way between countless tiny islands, some with small brightly painted wooden houses on them, but many with not a house or a tree on the bare rocks. Late in the afternoon, we would come finally to the end of the journey, the island of Fjome [^fjoimi]. This was where our mother always took us. Heaven knows how she found it, but to us it was the greatest place on earth. About two hundred yards from the coast along a narrow dusty road, stood a simple wooden hotel painted white. It was run by an elderly couple whose faces I still remember clearly and every year they welcomed us like old friends. A. Match the phrases in English with their Russian equivalents.

Some travel for pleasure, and some — on business; some travel light, and some take a lot of luggage on their travels, journeys, voyages or trips. They may choose various means of travelling (transport) and go: by air by land by sea by (air)plane by train by boat • by car • by coach (bus) • on horseback • on a bike • on foot II. Every journey has to be arranged beforehand. There’s a number of things one must take care of if they want to make their journey comfortable: a) choose the most convenient way of getting at your destination: • a sea (ocean) liner • a through train • a direct flight • a fast coach (train) • a local or a long-distance train • a sleeper (sleeping car) • a smoker or non-smoker • a train with a dining car or a buffet ['bufei] car b) book/reserve/buy a ticket: • a train ticket • a coach ticket • a first-class, second-class, economy (tourist)-class ticket • business-class ticket • a single ticket • a return ticket • a ticket to a place (e.g. to London) c) find out the time of departure and the time of arrival, pack your luggage neatly and come to the railway station, coach station or airport well in advance; 229. ft UNIT 5 _________________________________________________________ d) allow yourself enough time for: • finding the right platform, carriage and compartment, cabin or the right gate at the airport; • checking in for the flight or voyage; • going through the customs formalities and passport control; • filling in a declaration; • taking your heavy or bulky luggage to the luggage van; • weighing your luggage and paying excess luggage charges if necessary; • doing some last-minute shopping at the station, airport or duty-free; • boarding the train, ship or plane on time. 111. These things can make your journey easier or more rewarding: • a season ticket or a travel card cost you less than a regular ticket; • a nice book or an interesting magazine help you to while away the time on the journey; • a hearty talk with your fellow passengers may be very pleasant; • you can look through the window and admire the picturesque views. IV. These things can spoil the impression of your journey: • travel sickness (but you can take a medicine for it); • heavy luggage (but you can hire a porter or use a trolley); • talkative fellow passengers (but you can always pretend that you’re reading or that you are deaf); • missing your transport (this won’t happen if you’re welborganized); • bad food (but you can always pack a couple of sandwiches just in case); • delays and cancellations [^kaenssMeiJnz] of trains, flights etc. (but it may be nice to have some time to yourself); • bad weather (but suitable clothes can help you). V. When you come to another city you are likely to stay in/at: • a hotel • a motel • a hostel • a boarding house • a guest house • bed and breakfast (B & B) 230 __________________________________________ UNIT 5 When you stay in a hotel you: • cheek in (register) at a hotel; • ask for a room, suite [swi:t] for a night, two nights etc. The room you ask for can be: • single or double • with a shower or a bath • with a view of the sea (overlooking the sea) • with a twin bed, a double bed The manager of the hotel can show you the room and the facilities available. The price of your room can include service (e. g. laundry service), breakfast and some facilities. Don’t forget to check out at the end of your stay.

He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound’s the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake. The woods are lovely, dark and deep.

Published on a regular basis, usually daily or weekly, they also interpret events behind the news. In addition, newspapers give useful information, such as stock market prices, weather reports and television programmes. They are also a popular source of reading for entertainment. People often buy newspapers for their feature articles on subjects of wide interest, such as travel and fashion, for their comics and crosswords, and for their regular columns on topics, such as gardening, eating out, show business, gossip and astrology. Together with other means of communication, such as radio, television, and magazines, newspapers form the media. Printed forms of the media, including newspapers and magazines are also called “the press”. Newspapers treat the news in two different ways. They can take a serious line, reporting and explaining the news with the aim of informing the readers as fully as possible. Alternatively they may take a more popular approach which requires more entertainment in the choice and presentation of stories, photographs and larger eye-catching headlines. Many newspapers combine the serious and the popular approach, but tc FINANCIAL TIMES Evening News The Guardian un THE INDEPENDEIW THE TIMES Wkt firiqitli 247^ UNIT 6 _____________________________________________________ in the United Kingdom newspapers tend to be either one thing or the other. Both serious and popular newspapers can be further divided into daily or weekly (depending on how often they are published), morning or evening (depending on when they are published) and local, national, or, in a very few cases, international (depending on the area over which they are sold). Newspapers of general interest are supplemented by specialist newspapers, which publish news and stories for people with particular interests. Religious, financial, and sporting newspapers are examples. The British are believed to be the greatest newspaper readers in the world. They read newspapers at breakfast, on the bus or on the train when they go to work and on the way back home. A symbol of the British Press is Fleet Street — a street in London that used to be home of most British national newspapers. Fleet Street is conveniently situated on the north bank of the River Thames close to a number of large railway stations, which makes it easy to deliver the papers to the trains taking them round the country. Fleet Street is also not far from such important British institutions as the Bank of England, the Stock Exchange, the Houses of Parliament and the Law Courts, which allows the Fleet Street journalists to keep an eye on things. British daily papers are published from Monday to Saturday. The serious or quality papers such as The Times^ The Guardian^ The Financial Times, The Independent and The Daily Telegraph are for those who want to know about important happenings everywhere, both domestic news and foreign news. Compared with Russian papers, British quality papers are very thick. They usually consist of separate sections such as Politics, Finances, Business, etc. It’s not uncommon for a newspaper reader to use only one or two sections and throw the others away. Popular papers or tabloids, such as The Daily Mail, The Sun or The Daily Express make a much easier reading and have a more general readership. Many popular papers run strip cartoons and humorous drawings, a lot of them have a woman’s page, and readers’ letters. Nearly all papers pay special attention to sports news. The evening papers, such as The Evening News are often bought because people want to know the winner of a race or the result of football pools. The Sunday papers are not Sunday editions of the daily papers but separate weekly editions coming out on Sundays. In addition to the news they usually provide interesting articles on arts, newly-published books, and gardening. Some of them, such as The Sunday Times have a very high reputation and the best critics and journalists write for them. ^48 1 UNIT 6 Decide what these words and word combinations from the text mean and choose the right item. 1) common knowledge 2) feature article 3) comics 4) headline 5) stock exchange 6) law court 7) readership 8) football pool a) everyone knows it b) some people know it a) an especially long article in a newspaper or in a magazine b) an article about a feature film a) people who are funny b) set of drawings telling a short story a) a name of a story in a newspaper printed in large letters b) the first line in a newspaper story a) a place where money is exchanged b) a place where stocks, bonds and shares^ are bought and sold a) a place where people come to hear a law case b) home of a king or a queen a) newspapers and magazines read by the public b) people who read a newspaper or a magazine a) a game of football played by local teams b) a kind of game in which people try to guess the results of football matches, risking small sums of money and getting much bigger sums if they guess correctly 'lib r Answer the questions on the press. l.What else do newspapers do besides reporting the news and interpreting it? 2.

Interview with Prince William As he starts university Prince William gives his most revealing interview. I Nineteen-year-old Prince William started | at St Andrews in Scotland last week. William says he wants to be “an ordinary student" and hopes that the media won’t invade his privacy. Here is part of his interview with Sam Greenhill. | Did you enjoy your year out before university? I “I loved my gap year. I wish I could have another one.” j__ What was the highiight of that year? • “I loved working on a farm in England. It was the best part of my year. I enjoyed the fact I was put in as a hand and was paid and was just another guy on the farm. I got my hands dirty, did all the chores and had to get up at 4 am. I got to see a completely different lifestyle.” What did you think of your three months in Africa? “I loved Africa and learned a lot from it. I met some really decent people.” Why did you choose St Andrews? “I didn’t want to go to an English university because I’ve lived there and wanted to get away to try something else. And I do love Scotland. There’s plenty of space, I love the hills and mountains and I thought St Andrews had a real community feel to it.” is history of art something you want to pursue after degree? “I’m much more interested in doing something with the environment I’m not sure what yet.” St Andrews is very different from Eton. How easy wiii it be to make friends? “I do not choose my friends on the basis of where they are from or what they are. It’s about their character and who they are and whether we get on. I just hope I can meet people I get on with. I don’t care about their backgrounds.” :250 ____________________________________________________ UNIT 6 Are you excited about moving away from home and being able to take more control of your life? “Having more independence is quite a big thing, although I’ve always got policemen around so I’m never completely independent. However, I’m looking forward to being able to manage my own time in a relaxed atmosphere.” Will you return home often? “No. Although I will miss it, it’s going to be difficult to get back home. Even if I had the time — and I probably won’t — it’s seven-and-a-half hours by car and three-and-a-half by plane. I’ll be a long way from friends at home. I know a couple of guys at St Andrews who are older and a couple in my year, but most of my friends are at the other universities. So I would like to spend weekends with my new friends. Weekends at St Andrews I’ve been told are rather quiet. I’m not a party animal, despite what people might think, but I like to go out sometimes like anyone else.” As a football fan, will you begin supporting one of the Scottish teams, Dundee or Dundee United? “I will support a team after a while but for the time being I’m just concentrating on Aston Villa.” Why have you decided not to join any of the clubs at St Andrews? “I’m going to take my time until I’m settled.” Are you worried about media intrusion into your student life? “The way the media treated me in my gap year was great and if that could continue everyone would be happy, especially me. If it does get too curious and intrusive, I will feel really uncomfortable.” 17 Read the interview with Prince William again and say which of the following topics he didn’t mention in it. 1) football 2) his family 3) his gap year 4) his plans for the future career 5) his hobbies 6) his friends 7) mass media 8) how he is going to spend his free time at university 9) what kind of people he dislikes 10) his choice of university 251 18 UNIT 6__________________________________________ Find in the text English equivalents for the following: 1) средства массовой информации не будут вторгаться в его личную жизнь, 2) год, который студенты университетов проводят вне его стен, путешествуя, знакомясь с будущей профессией, расширяя свой кругозор, 3) самое значительное, что произошло в течение года, 4) выполняя все поручения, 5) чувство товарищества, общности, 6) после получения диплома, 7) мне безразличны их происхождение и то, чем они занимались прежде, 8) я с нетерпением жду, когда я смогу сам планировать свое время в более спокойной обстановке, 9) я не большой любитель вечеринок, 10) вмешательство средств массовой информации в студенческую жизнь, 11) то, как средства массовой информации обращались со мной, 12) слишком любопытные и навязчивые 19 Say what kind of person Prince William is like and how his interview impressed you. ‘New Language I.

How I Became a Writer (After Roald Dahl) A fiction writer is a person who invents stories. But how does one start on a job like this and become a full-time professional writer? Nowadays just about every single successful writer has started out in some other job - a schoolteacher, perhaps, or a doctor or a journalist or a lawyer. Let me tell you how I myself got in through the back door and found myself in the world of fiction. At the age of eight, in 1924, I was sent away to boarding school in a town called Weston-Super-Mare, on the southwest coast of England. Those were days of horror, of fierce discipline, of no talking in the dormitories, no running in the corridors, no this or that or the other, just rules, rules and more rules that had to be obeyed. My memories of school are mostly nightmarish. My end-of-term reports^ contained only uncomplimentary words about my abilities in the subject called English Composition. Only some of the examples are “incapable of putting his words on paper”, “vocabulary limited”, “idle and illiterate”, “no interesting ideas”. Little wonder that it never entered my head to become a writer in those days. When I left school at the age of eighteen, in 1934, I turned down my mother’s offer (my father died when I was three) to go to university. Unless one was going to become a doctor, a lawyer, a scientist, an engineer or some other kind of professional person, I saw little point in wasting three or four years at Oxford or Cambridge, and I still hold this view. Instead, I had a passionate wish to go abroad, to travel, to see distant lands. So I got a job at the Shell Oil Company, where they promised me that after two or three years’ training in England, I would be sent off to a foreign country. “Which one?” I asked. “Who knows?” the man answered. “It depends where there is a vacancy. It could be Egypt or China or India or almost anywhere in the world.” That sounded like fun. It was fun. When my turn came to be sent abroad three years later, I was told it would be East Africa. That journey took two and a half weeks. We went through the Bay of Biscay and called in at Gibraltar. We headed down the Mediterranean by way of Malta, * end-of-term reports: both in Britain and the USA teachers write a statement about a child’s work at school, sent to his/her parents 275, UNIT 6 ______________________________________________________ Naples and Port Said. We went through the Suez Canal and down the Red Sea. It was all tremendously exciting. For the first time, I saw great sandy deserts, and Arab soldiers on camels, and palm trees with dates growing on them, and flying fish and thousands of other marvellous things. By the summer of 1939, it became obvious that there was,going to be a war with Hitler’s Germany. On the next day after Britain entered the war I got into my car and drove north to Nairobi, in Kenya, to join the RAF.’ For six months they trained us in small airplanes called Tiger Moths, and those days were also glorious. There were twenty of us training to be pilots out there in Nairobi. Seventeen of those twenty were killed during the war. I myself was shot down. My plane crashed in the Libyan desert and burst into flames, but I managed to get out and was finally rescued by our soldiers. In 1942 my injuries began to give me too much trouble and I had to stop flying. They gave me a month’s leave and then sent me to Washington, D. C. as assistant air attache, at this point the United States was already in the war as well. I was twenty-six years old when I arrived in Washington, and I still had no thoughts of becoming a writer. During the morning of my third day, I was sitting in my new office at the British Embassy when there was a knock on my door. “Come in.” A very small man with thick spectacles entered the room. “Forgive me for bothering you,” he said. “My name is Forester. C. S. Forester.”^ I nearly fell out of my chair. “Are you joking?” I said. “No,” he said, smiling. “That’s me.” And it was. It was the great writer himself. “Look,” he said. “A magazine called the Saturday Evening Post will publish any story I write. I have a contract with them. And I have come to you because I think you might have a good story to tell. I mean about flying. Come and have lunch with me,” he said. “And while we’re eating, you can tell me all about it. Tell me your most exciting adventure. I’ll write it up for the Saturday Evening Post. The Americans should know more about this war and help us.” I was thrilled. I had never met a famous writer before. In the small French restaurant we took roast duck with vegetables and potatoes. The dish required so much attention that I found it difficult to talk. And apart from that, I have never been good at telling stories aloud. “Look,” I said. “If you like I’ll try to write down on paper what happened and send it to you. Then you can rewrite it properly yourself in your own good time. Wouldn’t that be easier? I could do it tonight.” t: RAF [,сиг ei 'ef]— Royal Air Force, the British airforce C. S, Forester (1899-1966) — a British writer, best known for his stories about the Royal Navy in the days of sailing ships, especially those about the character Captain Horatio Hornblower ^76 _____________________________________________________ UNIT 6 That, though I didn’t know it at the time, was the moment that changed my life. That night I sat down and wrote my story. For the first time in my life, I became totally absorbed in what I was doing. I floated back in time and once again I was in the hot desert of Libya. Everything came back to me. Writing it down on paper was not difficult. The story seemed to be telling itself. When it was finished, I gave it a title. I called it “A Piece of Cake.”* The next day I sent it off to Mr Forester. Then I forgot all about it. Exactly two weeks later, I received a reply from the great man. It said: Dear RD, You were meant to give me notes, not a finished story. Your piece is marvellous. It is the work of a gifted writer. I didn’t touch a word of it. You will be happy to hear that the “Post” accepted it immediately and have paid one thousand dollars. I enclose the check. It’s all yours. The “Post” is asking if you will write more stories for them. I do hope you will. Did you know you were a writer? With my best wishes and congratulations, C. S. ^o/vster A.

When my turn came I spoke to a young efficient travel agent. He suggested a few countries in Asia and Africa but I had to sav no to his offers (5) as I wanted to see more of good old Europe. Besides (6) it was the wrong season for hot countries. Unfortunately all the tours of Europe turned out to be too expensive and I lost all hope to have a holiday abroad. I was on the point of leaving the agency when my agent held out to me a brightly coloured booklet and said I could take it home and look through it when I had spare time (7) ...

The mass media is a collective name for newspapers and magazines, radio, television and the Internet. Newspapers and magazines are the oldest of the mass media. These are various kinds of editions: • daily • weekly • monthly • morning • evening • national • local • serious (quality) • popular (broadsheet, tabloid ['taebbid]) circumstances ['saiksmstsnsiz] — обстоятельства 281 UNIT 6 In an issue of a paper or a presented in: II. magazine one can find various information • articles • photographs • leading articles/editorials • cartoons • features • strip cartoons • reports • crosswords and puzzles • comments • (classified) advertisements • reviews • obituaries [a'bit/usnz] III. Usually papers are divided into sections. With the help of this division we can easier find the information we need. Another helpful device for finding information is headlines. Some of the popular sections are: politics ['pnbtiks] economics business and finance science and technology patterns culture home news cooking foreign (international) news current affairs reviews programmes sports news readers’ letters entertainment fashion and dress children’s pages recipes (for) gardening weather forecasts radio and TV programmes Newspapers and magazines are published in a great number of copies.

The first Roman papers were written out in more than 2000 copies and sent everywhere in the Roman Empire and hung up in public places. People who could read called out the news to people who could not. For centuries news travelled very slowly, and reached few people. The invention of the printing press in the 15th century quickly led to the publication of newspapers and magazines. Newspapers were first published on a regular basis in German cities and in Antwerp, Belgium, in the early 17th century. ... the word “magazine” comes from the Arabic makhaziriy which means a store house, or place to keep things. In one sense, that is exactly what magazine is. It is a store house of stories and articles. Many magazines are highly illustrated with colour photographs and drawings, but some, called journals^ are more scientific and generally have fewer illustrations. ... magazines can be divided into two main types: general interest magazines, which contain articles on a variety of subjects and are more or less of interest to everyone; and special interest magazines. Some of the best-known general interest magazines are Reader’s Digest and Time. Specialist magazines usually deal with a certain subject, for example, music {Top of the Pops, New Musical Express), language learning {English Today), science and economy {New Scientist, Economist), etc. 289^ □ h> UNIT 6 ... some magazines are produced specially for children. Many of these are comics containing comic strips, in which stories are told in pictures. In the US, comics were originally meant for the large immigrant population, who understood little English. But children also liked them, and “superheroes” such as Superman and Batman became folk heroes. EE] A. Listen to the poem “If-” (No 43) and read it. If- (By Rudyard Kipling) If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you. If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you. But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies. Or being hated, don’t give way to hating. And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise; I-,, ^ .,290 If you can dream — and not make dreams your master. If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim, If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools. Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stop and build ’em up with worn-out tools; lll’fS- ' i..

And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them “Hold on!” If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue. Or walk with Kings — nor lose the common touch. If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you. If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run. Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it. And — which is more — you’ll be a Man, my son! B. Compare the poem “If-” with its Russian translation by S. Marshak. Если... О, если ты покоен, не растерян. Когда теряют головы вокруг, И если ты себе остался верен. Когда в тебя не верит лучший друг, И если ждать умеешь без волненья. Не станешь ложью отвечать на ложь,' Не будешь злобен, став для всех мишенью. Но и святым тебя не назовешь, И если ты своей владеешь страстью, И не тобою властвует она, И будешь тверд в удаче и в несчастье. Которым, в сущности, цена одна, И если ты готов к тому, что слово Твое в ловушку превращает плут, И, потерпев крушение, можешь снова — Без прежних сил — возобновить свой труд. И если ты способен все, что стало Тебе привычным, выложить на стол. Все проиграть и вновь начать сначала. Не пожалев того, что приобрел. 29^ UNIT б 0 „ Г, Ч:, ш (3 й ^ ' i43 и если можешь сердце, нервы, жилы Так завести, чтобы вперед нестись.

Главы перед молвою не клонить, И если будешь мерить расстоянье Секундами, пускаясь в дальний бег, — Земля — твое, мой мальчик, достоянье! И более того, ты — человек! U 1Ш; Ш IFFj Listen to the song (No 44) and sing it along. I Just Called (By Stevie Wonder) No New Year’s Day to celebrate. No chocolate girls or candy hearts to give away. No birds of spring, no song to sing. In fact it’s just another ordinary day. No April rain, no flowers bloom. No wedding Saturday within the month of June, But what it is, is something true Made up of these three words that I must say to you. I just called to say, “I love you,” I just called to say, how much I care, I just called to say, “I love you.” And I mean it from the bottom of my heart. No Summer’s time, no warm July, No harvest moon to light one tender August night. No Autumn breeze, no falling leaves. Not even time for bird to fly to southern skies. No Libra sun, no Halloween, No giving things toward the Christmas joy you bring. But what it is, though, oh, so new. To fill your heart like no three words that I ever knew. ^Project Work Organize and play the game “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” in your class. Prepare questions with four possibie answers to each.
