The average American watches more than ten hours of sports-related television shows per week. 44% of households in the USA watch the Super Bowl. 70 million people go to professional baseball games every year.

Around 28% of adults in the USA say they participate in organized sports regularly. About 40% do strenuous exercise at least three times a week, and more and more people work out in health clubs every day. Children are also involved: for example, 19 million children in the USA play in soccer leagues. However, a lot of people probably should do more exercise; 33% of Americans are overweight.

2.5 Culture Generation EA
a Read the first two paragraphs of the article and answer the questions. What does EA mean? It means “ethnically ambiguous.” Why don’t the old race labels work any more? b Read paragraph three. What’s going to happen in the next decade? c Read paragraph four. Complete the definition. A “wigga” is d Read paragraph five. Is Beyoncé’s hair naturally blonde? e Read paragraph six. Do you agree with the conclusions? Is your generation EA? Are there many mixed race students in your school? Do you know any wiggas?

Unit2

Forget black, forget white. EA is what’s hot! 1 EA means “ethnically ambiguous” and describes a new generation. 2 If you talk to many young people today, it soon becomes clear that they don’t think much about race or color. Mario, a student from Miami, says: “Black and white people interact so much that we have lost the distinction.” Rachel, a young nurse from Los Angeles, agrees. “Trying to define people by the old race labels doesn’t work any more. Look at the people around you. We are the new blended youth.” 3 Mario and Rachel and millions like them are part of a new group called Generation Ethnically Ambiguous (generation EA for short). It reflects the demographic reality of countries like the United States and Britain. In the last census, seven million Americans identified themselves as members of more than one race, or members of “no race.” In ten years, “mixed race” is going to become the biggest ethnic minority group. 4 White teenagers are adopting black lifestyles and culture in fashion, looks, music, sports and language. Black urban culture has become everybody’s culture, says journalist Paul McKenzie. It represents the triumph of the black community. In the past, a young white person who copied black style was sometimes called a “wigga, a negative term back then. Now wiggas are every place. The ” extremely cool Justine Timberlake and Eminem are famous wiggas. 5 EA is very hot now. Beyoncé, a black American, dyes her hair blonde, Cristina Aguilera accentuates her Latin American roots with her black hair, and multiracial bands like the Sugarbabes are more popular every day. 6 The barriers between black and white are disappearing. People don’t make a distinction now because the distinction isn’t there—culturally and sometimes even physically!, concludes Nick Leader. We are the new mix. We are the remix generation.

Text messaging (or SMS = Short Messaging Service) is a new form of language. It consists of phonetic abbreviations that represent the sounds of words. Some are simple and others look like secret codes. For example, the question and answer above are: How are you? and Rolling on the floor laughing my head off!

4.4 Reading and writing
1 Put the paragraphs of this biography of George Eliot in the correct order.
George Eliot was an English novelist in the nineteenth century—but this George was not a man! George Eliot was a woman! Her real name was Mary Ann Evans. This is the story of her life … a All her other books were successful, too. The most famous are The Mill on the Floss, Silas Marner and the book some people think is the best in the English language, Middlemarch. George Eliot is a famous writer. But not everybody knows she was a woman. Why did she change her name? b When she was young she read all the time. She never stopped reading and educating herself. She learned German and Italian, too. c She was born in 1819 in Warwickshire, England. She was the youngest of five children. She had two brothers and two sisters.

Unit4

d Well, it was very unusual for women to be educated at all in those days. Most girls never went to school, and it was very difficult for women to be writers. So, she used a man’s name and became one of the best writers, male or female, of all time. e Her favorite brother was Isaac. In one of her novels, she wrote about a brother and sister who are a lot like her and Isaac. f Her father died in 1849 and she went to London, where she made a lot of friends who told her she should be a writer. She started writing short stories and then her first novel, Adam Bede, which was a great success.

2 Now put the novels of George Eliot
in the correct order.
a The Mill on the Floss – the next after Adam Bede b Middlemarch – 1872 c Silas Marner – eleven years before Middlemarch d Adam Bede – her first novel

a ____________ Action in the air and on the waves—this movie has it all. The acting isn’t great, and Point Break maybe it’s all a little unrealistic, but it’s nonstop action from start to finish. It’s also good to see these two actors together—what a team! If you like surfing, skydiving and other wild sports— and you like a good detective story, too—this is a movie you must see! 6666 b ____________ is like Die Hard but filmed on a mountain … All the familiar characteristics are there: the one-liners, the international bad guys, big shoot-outs, etc. The tension never reaches the levels of Die Hard, but it’s still enjoyable, if you like this sort of thing. And if you get bored by the same old stuff, you can always look at the magnificent scenery! 666 c ____________ Action, culture and romance in one movie—a legendary warrior retires, but comes back into action to fight against his old enemy. Based on Asian martial arts, the incredible fight sequences are a brilliant mix of dances with swords and video games … Amazing! 66666 d ____________ If you like your action movies to be about sports, this one might be for you!

Hollywood and Bollywood
Hollywood The first movie studio was established in Hollywood, north of Los Angeles, in 1911. Hollywood studios are all privately owned, and the world’s movie capital now produces about two hundred and fifty movies a year. A Hollywood movie can cost $150 million or even more. Top Hollywood stars’ salaries are incredible— about $25 million—and they usually only make one movie at a time. Most Hollywood movies – can be classified into: action, romance, comedy, science fiction, horror, drama, adventure or animation. – are less than two hours without an intermission. – use famous music and songs, but we don’t see the singers or musicians and there is little singing or dancing. – use top stars, except for a few independent movies. – include different types of stories with lots of kissing. – have a lot of action and blood.

Bollywood Bollywood is the name for the Indian movie industry located in the city of Mumbai (called Bombay until 1995). Bollywood started in 1911 with the first Indian silent movie. The industry boomed and today there are over two hundred and fifty movie theaters in Mumbai alone. Bollywood’s movies are produced in a government-owned studio facility called Film City in the north of Mumbai. Bollywood makes over eight hundred movies each year. Bollywood stars are very popular and well-paid. Top stars often receive 40% of the U.S. $2 million it usually costs to make a Bollywood movie. Demand for these stars is so high that they often work on ten movies at the same time.

Most Indian movies – follow a similar format called masala, the Indian word for a collection of spices. (This means that a lot of different things —adventure, romance, comedy, etc.—all happen in one movie.) – are three to four hours long and include an intermission. – include dozens of songs and dances featuring a hundred or so choreographed dancers. – use top stars. – have the story of “boy” meets “girl, but ” no kissing. – have a lot of action but no blood. – have a happy ending.

4 a _____ Then he was really in trouble. A pilot saw Larry as he was drifting into the airspace of Los Angeles International Airport. He radioed the airport and said he was passing a guy in a chair with a gun—4,000 meters above the ground. Night was coming and a breeze was blowing Larry out to sea while a helicopter was following him.

b _____ Larry tied the balloons to a chair and filled them with helium. He was filling the balloons when he noticed that the chair was a meter above the ground, so he climbed on the chair to test it. It worked! Smiling to himself, Larry packed some sandwiches and his air gun. He thought that when it was time to descend he could just pop some balloons. c _____ Larry Waters of Los Angeles only had one dream—he wanted to fly. Unfortunately, he didn’t get into the Air Force. So, day after day, Larry watched airplanes fly over his house. Then, one day, while he was watching the sky, Larry had an idea. He went to a store and bought forty-five weather balloons and some helium. d _____ The police were waiting for Larry when he landed. As they were leading him away, Larry said to the reporters: “A man can't just sit around?” e _____ So, he cut the rope that kept the balloons down. He found himself shooting up into the sky very, very quickly! The floating chair was climbing higher and higher. Larry was nervous. He was thinking about shooting the balloons, but he didn’t want to come down as quickly as he went up! f _____ It was difficult to rescue Larry because every time they got close to him, the wind from the helicopter blew Larry away. Eventually, he caught a rope and slowly came down to Earth.

2 Write true (T) or false (F). Correct the false sentences.
a b c d Larry never wanted to fly. He got his idea while he looking at airplanes. The chair went up faster than Larry expected. Larry was never worried about his situation. He brought a gun to shoot birds. The wind made Larry and his balloons fly towards the sea. A helicopter rescued Larry. The police were happy about Larry.
F, Larry always wanted to fly. _________________________________ _________________________________ _________________________________ _________________________________ _________________________________ _________________________________ _________________________________ _________________________________

Five hundred years ago…
in Germany, in a town called Hamelin by the Weser River, there was an invasion of rats. There were rats of every kind: big rats, small rats, black and gray; they were everywhere. They fought the dogs, killed the cats, bit the babies and ate all the food they could find. Terrified, the people of Hamelin went to see the Mayor. While they were in the Town Hall, a very strange man appeared. Tall and thin, with long blond hair and bright blue eyes, the man was wearing a tunic and a hat with a feather in it. “I can make all the creatures living under the sun follow me so you will never see them again. People call me the Pied Piper!” he said, touching his pipe. He continued: “I am only a poor piper, but my pipe has freed other countries of plagues. If I can free your town of rats, will you give me a thousand guilders?” “Only a thousand? We’ll give you fifty thousand!” exclaimed the Mayor.

So, the Pied Piper walked into the streets and took out his pipe. With three high notes—peep, peep, peep!—he woke up all the rats. Suddenly, there were hundreds of rats in the streets following the Piper. Big and small, fat and tall, young and old, mothers and their families, all the rats followed the Piper, dancing happily. He danced with them, playing his pipe and guiding them into the Weser River—where they all danced in and drowned! When the Piper asked for his fifty thousand guilders, the Mayor told him that the town had no money. “What is dead cannot return,” laughed the Mayor. “We’ll give you just fifty guilders. Good-bye!” The angry Pied Piper walked into the streets and took out his pipe. With three high notes—peep, peep, peep!—he woke up all the children. Suddenly, there were hundreds of children in the streets, following the Piper. All the children of the town were there, dancing to the Piper’s music. He danced with them, playing his pipe and guiding them up a mountain and into a cave. The cave closed and they disappeared—forever! The people of Hamelin were devastated. They never saw their children again. If only they had kept their promise.

Aesop was a storyteller in Greece in the 7 Century B.C. His stories—called fables—are all very simple, but each one has a moral. Even today, two thousand years after he died, Aesop’s fables can teach us important lessons. a _______ Once upon a time, there was a tortoise and a hare. As everyone knows, the tortoise is a very slow animal, one of the slowest. The hare, on the other hand, is one of the fastest. b _______ But the hare was not only very fast. He was also very proud. He said to the tortoise, “You’re so slow. You take much longer to do everything. I’m much quicker than you!” c _______ “And my legs and ears are longer,” continued the hare. “In fact, I’m much more handsome and cleverer than you.” d _______ In his very gentle, calm way, the tortoise said, “Well, it’s true your legs and ears are longer, but if we race, I can win.” e _______ “You! Win?!” The hare laughed. He was very rude. He thought he was the best animal in the whole animal kingdom. f _______ The hare ran so quickly he was soon far ahead of the tortoise, who was walking slowly behind. So the hare stopped for a rest under a tree ... where he fell asleep! g _______ Well, while the hare was sleeping—and he slept much longer than he thought—the slow and steady tortoise just kept walking, slowly but surely. h _______ When the hare woke up and realized what had happened, he ran as fast as he could. But it was too late. The tortoise was already there at the finishing line, resting and calmly waiting for him.

2 Mark () the moral you think is best for the fable.
a b c d Not all the stories you hear are true. A small friend may be a very important friend. Don’t trust someone who says he/she is perfect. Sometimes it’s better to be slow and consistent.

Household pets are common in America, Europe, and Asia. In the USA, dogs are favorites. A survey in 2004 found that 63% of the American households have dogs and 35% have cats. Fish, birds, turtles and small animals like rabbits and hamsters are also favorites. The British are especially fond of pets. Half of all the households in England have a pet, usually a cat or bird. But what do people from other countries think about pets? Australian Aborigines capture dingo (wild dog) puppies and raise them for a time before letting them go. In China and Hong Kong, cats are thought to bring good luck and are kept in stores as well as homes. The Japanese keep birds and crickets as pets. The Italians aren’t crazy about dogs but think cats make good companions. The Inuit Eskimo of northern Canada adopt bear cubs, foxes, birds, and baby seals. But animals are rarely kept as pets in Africa.
