Before you start on Stephanies daily routine

you could use mime to remind the class of
some of these daily actions: wake up, comb
hair, eat breakfast, clean teeth, put on make-up,
have a shower.
Students may have difficulty with the fact that
these verbs relating to personal actions are not
reflexive in English, and you may need to
practise saying, e.g. I wake up, to establish
that you dont say I wake me up or I wash
me, although you can say I wake my little
brother up.

You may want to discuss the common English

usage of replacing other verbs such as eat with
have. You can have a shower, a bath, a wash,
breakfast (lunch, dinner, a meal, an apple, etc.),
a rest or a sleep. It is also possible to take a
bath or shower, but this isnt normally used
with meals or types of food, except in Do you
take sugar (or milk)? in tea and coffee.

These words normally come before the verb in

friendly. However, especially in spoken
language, people may put usually or

Introduce the text by asking students if they

have heard of Harrods. Before reading point out
that the text is quite difficult and they should be
practising gist reading, but that they do not
need to understand every word of it.
Harrods was founded by Charles Henry
Harrod in 1834. It was originally a grocery
store in East London, but it moved to its
present site in 1849. Over time it grew and
today it occupies 90,000 m 2 and has 330
different departments. Over 5,000 people work
for the store. It is particularly famous for selling
expensive designer items, although it also sells
a lot of smaller items, too, which are popular
with tourists. Its current owner is Egyptian
multi-millionaire, Mohamed Al-Fayed.



Harrods is a large luxury department store in

Knightsbridge, one of the most expensive
shopping areas in London. You can buy all
sorts of things there clothes, jewellery, toys,
furniture, food You can also have a meal in
the various restaurants there, or you can have
beauty treatments.
Other famous department stores in London are

14 When doing this exercise you may want to

draw students attention to the fact that a lot of
words in English have several different
meanings. Two good examples of this are fair
and mean, both of which appear in the
exercise. Fair hair, a fair teacher, a fun fair, fairly
good, etc. Mean = unkind; mean = not
generous; what does this word mean; mean
rainfall etc.
It is useful for students to be aware that if a
word that they know with one meaning seems

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a medieval bell
tower in the city of Pisa in Italy. It is famous
because it leans. Building started on the tower
in 1173 but the problem in the foundations
soon became evident. It was eventually
finished in the 14th century. By the late 20th
century, the tower was still leaning and was at
risk of collapse. Between 1990 and 2001 major
restoration work took place, which has helped
reduce the amount the tower leans and make it
safe again.

Unit 1 (page 10, ex 13)

Speaker 1: I usually sleep all morning, unless Ive got

any classes. Well, I work better at night, so Im often
up until 3 or 4 in the morning. I write all my essays at
night. At about midday I start to wake up. I have a
shower, wash my hair, clean my teeth, and put on
jeans and a clean T-shirt. Then I turn on my laptop
and make some coffee. Its the same every day, on
Saturday and Sunday as well as weekdays.
Speaker 2: I wake up at 6, when the alarm clock goes
off. I usually feel tired, but I get out of bed, have a
shower and get dressed. My husband is already
downstairs. He makes the breakfast, and I pack the
childrens lunches. We dont talk much in the
mornings. Everyone is in a hurry. I bang on the
childrens doors and shout Come on! Time to get up!
I put all my marking and my lesson plans and books
into a huge bag, ready for the day ahead. Then I kiss
the family goodbye and run!
Speaker 3: I wake up early these days, usually at
about 6, in summer or in winter. I get out of bed, and
go to the bathroom. I put on my dressing gown and
slippers. Then I go downstairs and open the front
door, and my cat comes in for his breakfast. I turn on
the radio in the kitchen and listen to the news. I
always have a good breakfast orange juice and
cereal, and then a cup of tea and some toast.
Speaker 4: I usually wake up a bit late at about 8. I
jump out of bed and run to the bathroom. Oh no! The
doors locked! Its my sister. She always takes hours
in the bathroom. I bang on the door, but she never
listens. I pick my clothes up off the bedroom floor, get
dressed in one minute flat, comb my hair and run
downstairs. No time for breakfast. I just grab a cup of
tea. Dad gives me a dirty look. I find my bag, put my
books in it and run. Why is Monday morning always
the worst?

Speaker 5: I never get up early, and I dont answer

the phone before midday. The maid knows that, and
she doesnt disturb me. When Im ready to get up, I
ring for her. She comes and I tell her what to do. She
brings me breakfast in bed just water and a little
fruit, usually. Then she brushes my hair and gets my
bath ready for me. I have a long, lazy bath and think
about what clothes to put on. Then I get ready to go
to the theatre for my performance at 8 oclock.

Unit 2 (page 15, ex 21)

Listen to part of a radio phone-in programme.

Presenter: Now our topic today is one which I know
interests many of our listeners how to have a good
time if you havent got much money. We all read
stories about people like actors and footballers who
spend thousands of pounds on designer clothes or on
parties in nightclubs. But how do you afford nice
clothes and parties if youre unemployed or a student
or you live on a low salary? Have you got any good
ideas or experiences you can share with other
listeners? Do call and tell us about them
And our first caller is. Wendy, from the village of
Aston in Oxfordshire. Wendy, what would you like to
tell us about today?
Wendy: I just want to say, Im a housewife with three
small children, so we dont have a lot of money, but
Im planning a party next month for my husbands
thirtieth birthday, and were not spending hundreds of
pounds we havent got it, anyway!
Presenter: So tell us what youre doing.
Wendy: Well, were organising everything ourselves.
Were having the party in a room in the village pub,
and its my uncles pub, so were not paying anything
for that.
Presenter: Right. And what about...?
Wendy: And my mums helping me with the food, my
sisters making the birthday cake, and my husbands
family are providing the drinks. I mean, were all
sharing it, all the family, thats how were doing it.
Thats what we always do.

Presenter: Sounds great. So how many guests are
you having, Wendy?
Wendy: About a hundred. Were inviting all our family
and friends. They all live here in the same village, and
they all enjoy a good party!
Presenter: And are you having any music? Will there
be a bit of singing and dancing?
Wendy: Oh yes. My nephews looking after that. Hes
a DJ and he plays in a band, so he likes doing that.
Presenter: Well, Wendy, thanks for telling us all about
it. It sounds like youre all having fun down there in
Aston but what about those of us who dont have a

Unit 3

(page 18, ex 11)

Speaker 1: Im fond of all kinds of sports, but
basketball is my favourite at the moment. Its a great
way of keeping fit. I belong to a local club and play in
their first team. We meet to practise every Tuesday
evening, and I always look forward to getting out on
the court. Sometimes we play against teams from
other clubs, too. We dont always win, but when we
do it feels like a real achievement.
Like many basketball players, Im tall, and Im good at
running and jumping. You have to be very quick on
your feet for this game almost like a dancer! I enjoy
watching games, too, especially if some of the top
teams are playing; those games can be really exciting!
Speaker 2: I go once a week to an evening class, and
Im studying watercolour painting. Ive always been
fond of looking at paintings and going to galleries and
exhibitions, but for a long time I didnt do anything
myself. Then I decided I needed something calm and
relaxing to take my mind off work, so I decided to go
to a class. What I like about it is that the teachers
there to give you advice, but everyone can work at
their own speed, and basically you do what you are
interested in doing. Im most interested in painting
landscapes, particularly the countryside around here,
with all the little rivers. I love going out and painting in
the open air, directly from nature. I find it very
Speaker 3: Before I came to live in this village I wasnt
particularly keen on acting or even going to the
theatre. Now its my main hobby. It started just as a
way of meeting people, as I was in a new place and
didnt have any family or friends here. The drama
group meets every month in the village hall, and we
have a lot of different activities. Sometimes we all go
together to see a play but usually we either read a
play together, or we work on a production. I enjoy that
most working together with other people to create
something new. I dont try to get the leading role I
dont like learning too many lines but I enjoy being
on stage and entertaining people. So I usually try to
get quite a small part in the play. And then I help
make the costumes as well, because I like sewing.
And it is a good way of meeting people I feel I know
lots of people in the village now, and thats mainly
because of the drama group.
CD 1

Speaker 4: I love music, by which I mean of course

that I love listening to it, but I also love making music.
In fact its more than a hobby for me, its a real
passion. The main instrument I play is the piano, but I
can also play the violin. I like playing by myself, but I
also enjoy playing in various groups with other
people. For example, I play in a band with some
friends, and also in a local amateur orchestra. All of
my family are musical. My mother is a music teacher,
and she gave me and my sister our first lessons. My
sister is very good at singing, in fact, shes a
professional singer. Im not quite that good at it, so
Im just an amateur, but its still very important to me
and I practise every day.

0 You usually find this in a living room. Its a really

good place to sit when youre reading or watching
TV. Its nice and soft and its big enough for two or
three people or you can lie on it if you want to be
really comfortable.
1 My favourite one of these is brightly coloured and
a friend gave it to me when we were on holiday in
South Africa. I was really glad when I got it home
without breaking it. I usually have it beside me
when Im sitting at the computer with black
coffee in it. It holds more than an ordinary cup
does and it doesnt need a saucer.
2 You need this to use any electrical device like a
hair dryer or a computer, an electric kettle or a TV.
It has metal pins and you put it into a socket in the
wall. Theyre not exactly the same in every country
and when you travel abroad you may need an
adaptor so that you can use, say, your phone
charger or your laptop while you are away from
3 This is a bit like a cushion but its for use on your
bed. I like to use two big ones but some people
like just one. They are often filled with feathers and
people put covers on them to match their sheets
and duvet covers. They are soft and comfortable
for your head.

At eight oclock tonight Make Me Famous, the hugely
popular programme based on the search for a new
singing star, reaches its final. Out of the twenty who
started, there are now just three singers left, and
remember, this is a programme where you, the public,
choose who wins. So if you have a favourite, dont
forget to watch tonight, because your vote could help
to make an unknown young singers dream come
After that, at nine, theres something for the many
people who enjoy programmes about the natural
world. This is a repeat of the series called Big Cats
which was first shown last year. The first programme
lasts just 40 minutes, but was filmed over a period of
three years. It shows the lives of a group of lions living
in Kenya. One word of warning, though. The
photography is excellent, but not everybody will want
to watch the lions as they chase, kill and eat a young
zebra. Theres an awful lot of blood
Later tonight, at ten, new drama comes to our TV
screens. Distant Songs is the latest from hot young
writer Josh Stone, and I was really looking forward to
this, and expecting something good. However, I have
to say, I was disappointed. The actors do their best,
but they just cant make a dull story exciting. My
advice is this: dont watch this, or the terrible comedy
half hour which follows it. Stay awake for tonights
midnight movie, which is The Bicycle Thieves, made in
1948 and still, in my opinion, one of the greatest films
ever made. If youve never seen it before, dont miss
this opportunity to see it!

Speaker 1: My best friends name is Tamara. You spell

that T-A-M-A-R-A. I think its a really pretty name and
shes very pretty too, with long dark hair and big
brown eyes. We havent known each other that long.
She moved into the flat next to ours three years ago
and weve been best friends ever since. I like her
because we enjoy doing the same things. Were both
mad about tennis and we play almost every day.
Tamaras really friendly and outgoing and shes great
fun to be with.
Speaker 2: Ive got a lot of mates but I guess my best
friend would be Anthony, thats A-N-T-H-O-N-Y. Weve
known each other since we were at primary school so
thats about fifteen years now! We play in a band
together. I play the guitar and he plays the drums and
another friend of ours is the singer. I think I like him
because he always makes me laugh. Hes not very
tall. Hes got brown hair and he wears glasses. Hes
got a great sense of humour and he always seems to
be in a good mood.
Speaker 3: My best friend has to be my twin sister.
Were not identical twins, though. Im small with
brown hair and shes quite tall and shes blonde. I
think were quite like each other in character, though.
Were both quite shy and prefer being at home to
going out. Her names Hannah thats H-A-N-N-A-H.
Weve known each other since birth, of course. We
live in different towns now but we talk on the phone at
least once a day. I couldnt manage without those
daily phone calls. Hannah understands me better than

anyone else does even my husband and I suppose

thats why shes my best friend.
Speaker 4: My best friend is called Michael. You spell
that M-I-C-H-A-E-L. We met in our first term at
university, so that must be eight years ago now. I like
him because he really helped me a lot when I was
going through a difficult time a few years ago. Hes a
very kind person and very generous too both with his
time and with his money. Hes got light brown hair and
I think his eyes are probably grey but youd need to
check that with his girlfriend. Were both really keen
on rock climbing and we often go to the mountains
together at the weekend.

Steve: Hello. Can you give me details of trains to
Leeds this Saturday, from Cambridge? And then back
from Leeds to Cambridge on Sunday night.
Assistant: What time do you want to leave?
Steve: Not too early. I want to arrive around twelve,

Assistant: OK, youve got a choice. Theres no direct
route, but theres a train that leaves at nine-oh two,
and gets you to Leeds at twelve thirty-five. It arrives in
Peterborough at nine fifty-three. Then you take the ten

The summer sales are beginning, and for all you

young people who love good clothes, the good news
is that the Strawberry Studio sale of high fashion
clothes for men and women starts this week on
Friday. Now, it continues until Sunday, and then the
shop will be closed on Monday, so if you go then,
youll be too late. This is your chance to get some
really great clothes for the holiday season, with many
prices reduced by 50 per cent, and some even by 70
per cent.
Ive been along to look, and several things, in
particular, caught my eye. For us girls there are some
beautiful tops, made of lovely soft silk, in brilliant
fashion colours like hot pink and ice blue, and theyre
down to as little as 20 each. And I also noticed some
long skirts and pure cotton shirts which would be
perfect on hot days.
All you boys go to the mens department on the first
floor to find a range of T-shirts, jeans and shorts,
created by top designers, at new low, low prices.
While youre there, take a look at the leather belts and
shoes, too.
And theres an extra special gift for the first four lucky
customers who come through the door on Friday
morning. They will all get a fabulous beach bag,
absolutely free.

Ronnie: Oh, lots of things. Seeing my friends, going
to different places to practise, learning new tricks all
the time and improving my performance
Interviewer: But you could say those things about
any sport! Whats special about this one?
Ronnie: OK, so I think I like it because you do it for
yourself as an individual. You can just do your own
thing, and learn to do the tricks you like. Its about
developing your own skills in your own time. Its a
good sport for individualists, and I guess thats the
sort of person I am.
Interviewer: So you dont enjoy team games, like
football, for example?
Ronnie: No, I like watching football, but I dont play
any team games. Dont get me wrong, Im not antisocial! One of the reasons I like skateboarding is
because you meet lots of different people and make
new friends through it.
Interviewer: But you dont compete against other
Ronnie: No. Its about competing against yourself,
and learning from other people. I learn all my new
tricks by watching people who are better than me and
copying them.
Interviewer: How did you start skateboarding?

house hes a lot older than me and he had just
given up doing it, and he gave me his board. And I

Nick: Well done! So why have you suddenly become
interested in keeping fit? I never used to be able to
persuade you to do anything sporty.
Emily: I just read a lot of articles about how important
it is to keep fit. I tried it and I actually found I enjoy it.
Sport does make you feel better. You were right all
Nick: So, are you trying to eat well too?
Emily: One thing at a time! Ive always eaten quite
healthily I think so Im not making any changes there.
Nick: Arent you? I have to be really careful with my
food. I just love chips and butter and all those things
that are bad for you. I try only to eat salads at lunch
time and I let myself have chips just once a week.
Emily: Good for you! Its hard to keep fit when theres
so much to do at work and at home, isnt it!
Nick: It certainly is. I often just feel like watching TV
when I get home. But I always feel better when I get
to the pool or the gym.
Emily: I couldnt agree more! So tell me more about
what exercise you do these days.
Nick: Well, much the same as before except Ive
started doing yoga too. Its fantastic. Im a lot calmer
than I was, I think.

reptile as a pet.
Max: Id really like to have a reptile as a pet a snake
or a lizard maybe but my mum isnt keen on the
idea. How can I persuade her that they make really
good pets? I think itd be much more interesting to
have a different pet from everyone else.
Vet: Well, I can see why your mum isnt keen. Reptiles
are interesting and unusual, but they need a lot of
care. They are also expensive to look after correctly.
So, as with any pet, you should think very hard about
whether you can give it everything it needs.

Max: So what exactly do reptiles need?
Vet: First of all, a lot of space. My son bought a baby
iguana, for example. It was small to begin with, but it
grew to nearly one and a half metres long. A Burmese
python can grow to over five metres. And, of course,
as reptiles grow, they need more and more space.
Max: And what about food?
Vet: Well, you must give them the right kind of food.
You may have to buy this from a special shop, and the
reptiles diet could include insects or mice and rats.
Max: Mm. Mum wouldnt be too keen on that. Id
have to do all the feeding then. Reptiles need special
cages, I imagine, too.
Vet: Thats right. It depends on the kind of reptile but
they all need a specially-built home which is like their
natural habitat. The levels and quality of light, and the
temperature and humidity are all important. Some
reptiles need to spend time in water to bathe or swim
and they may also need branches for climbing. Many
also need ultra-violet light and all of this can all be
very expensive.
Max: And the cage would have to be secure too.
Vet: Absolutely. A reptile that escapes from its warm
environment can quickly get ill and die. Also, some
reptiles can be dangerous, such as snakes and
Max: Would you be able to help me if it got ill?
Vet: That depends on the animal you choose. Youd
probably need to get advice from a specialist vet if
your pet was ill. And so you might have to travel quite
a long way.

Unit 18 (page 85, ex 8)

Languages are a fascinating area of study. Believe it

or not, language experts have collected the names of
more than 22,000 different languages or dialects.
Unfortunately, quite a few of these are disappearing
very fast. There are, for example, only about one
thousand speakers of Walmajarri, a language from
Western Australia and some languages have even
fewer speakers. In 2004, for example, there were only
about ten speakers of Ter Sami, a language which is
spoken in the north east of Russia. Clearly Ter Sami
will soon become extinct together with languages
such as Siuslaw, a language from the Pacific coast of
the USA. Its last recorded speaker died in the 1970s.
Some languages seemed to be disappearing but they
are now being used again. Such languages include
Irish in Ireland and Welsh in Wales. More than 580,000
people in Wales speak Welsh 20.8% of the
population of Wales, but the number is rising. 37.7%
of children between 3 and 15 years old in Wales can
speak the language. This is partly thanks to the Welsh
government, which has encouraged the use of Welsh
in schools.
As well as education, modern technology is helping
minority languages to survive and even grow. Ireland
got its own radio station in 1972 and its own TV
channel in 1996. The Internet is also having a positive
effect. It allows speakers of, say, Irish or Welsh, who

have emigrated to other continents to communicate in

those languages with other speakers wherever they
may be in the world.

the idea of climate change and rising sea levels
putting London under water. How important is the
environment to you in your own life?
Rocky: Oh, extremely important. I think that everyone
should do all they can to improve our prospects for
the future. We should all make much more use of
public transport, for example, rather than driving
Interviewer: So do you drive, Rocky?
Rocky: Never! I have my own driver. But I do make
sure he never uses the car unless Im in it. If I need
something from the shops he always goes there on
the bus.
Interviewer: And what about flying? Do you manage
to keep your air miles down like they say we should?
Rocky: Yes, I agree that its disgraceful how much
people fly these days. Everyone should go on holiday
by train. And theres far too much business travel.
With modern technology people could do business
just as easily using video conferencing and the like.
But in my job you have to fly a lot of course. I couldnt
not go to film festivals and premieres all over the
world. That would be letting my fans down. And when
Im filming on location its often in some place in the
middle of nowhere and I have to get back to
civilisation at the weekends. My performance would
suffer if I didnt.

Interviewer: So, what about your food miles? Are you

good about sticking to locally-produced food?
Rocky: Well, I think people should think about that
much more than they do. People often dont even
seem to check where the food theyre buying has
come from. Im usually quite careful about that. But of
course there are some things you have to get from
abroad. I like to have a few spoonfuls of caviar every
day there are special vitamins in it that are excellent
for the body. And it has to be totally fresh, of course,
so I have that sent to me once a week wherever I am
in the world. But one small weekly jar of caviar is not
going to add much to overall air pollution, is it!

collection. Listen carefully because its important. A new
system is about to be introduced. Youve all got used to
your green bins and to putting your garden rubbish and
waste paper in those. Well, now every household has its
own blue bin. This is for glass so will be very useful as
that can be recycled quite cheaply and easily.
You can also put tins in there. Theres no need to keep
them separate they will be sorted when they arrive at
the central recycling facilities.
There is also another improvement to the service. The
council will empty the bins not once weekly as before
but twice weekly. So thats good news.
The third and final bit of good news is that the council is
no longer going to charge for taking away fridges. You
will still have to pay for them to take away other large
items like sofas or pianos, however.
Anyway, there is plenty more information about all this
on the website which youll find at Thats greenworld all one

normally type my work then the teachers dont have
to struggle with my handwriting, which is pretty bad.
I always have a lot of homework to do at weekends
too. But I usually find time to do something with my

OK, Ive found two properties that I think would suit

you. You should definitely go and have a look at both
of these. The first one is number 31 Seymour Street.
Thats S-E-Y-M-O-U-R Street. It has everything that
you wanted in terms of accommodation. Its main plus
point is that it is a very quiet street. I know you prefer
that. The one thing that you might not be so keen on
is that it has no central heating. But the previous
occupants said that that wasnt actually a problem for
The other property that you must look at is a little
closer to town. The address is 6 Russell Square.
Again it is just right in terms of the type of
accommodation on offer. The good thing is that it is
close to shops. That can make life much easier when
youre busy studying, I know. Its on the fourth floor
and you have some great views. But Im afraid theres
no lift. Still going up and down stairs will help keep
you fit!
The rent for both properties is the same. Its 235 a
week. Thats very reasonable indeed for this town and
is not too bad, of course, when there are three of you

Helen: Anyway, have you decided what to get Mum

jewellery, a pair of earrings or something like that?
Patrick: Mm. Well, if you get her those I could get a
matching necklace or bracelet, perhaps. I had thought
of a watch but she always wears the one Dad gave
her so thats probably not a good idea.
Helen: Its much harder to choose for Dad, isnt it?
Patrick: Actually, I know what I want to get him this
year. One of those digital photo frames.
Helen: Brilliant. Theyre really cool!
I think Ill look and see if I can find him a book
perhaps. Theres bound to be something good out.

Maybe youd like a book too? Or a DVD?

Good afternoon, Im Tilly Jackson and Im here today to

tell you about my career as a writer. I know you are all
keen on writing as a career too, so with any luck what I
have to say will be of some interest and use to you.
I wrote my first novel a long time ago. I called it Sunset
and it was a very romantic story. I wrote it when I was
still a schoolgirl. That was in 1987. It seems a very long
time ago now! However, I didnt manage to get it
published then. It didnt come out until 1996, a couple
of years after my first published novel. After school I
went to university where I studied law I didnt then
believe I could make a living as a writer. However, I
never practised law. I was lucky enough to get a holiday
job on a local newspaper as a reporter and I stayed
there. This of course gave me lots of opportunities to
improve my writing skills and it also gave me a lot more
life experience than Id had before though of course my
law studies had also helped on that score. I had my first
novel published during that period. It was called Tango.
It wasnt a great success but it gave me useful contacts
in the publishing world and I learnt a lot from what the
critics wrote about it. My second novel The Ballet
Dancer was much more successful. It even won a
prize for new novelists. Since then Ive written three
more novels and have also had a couple of collections
of short stories published. At present Im experimenting
with writing a play. Its my first attempt at this and I feel
Im learning a great deal from this work, particularly
about dialogue writing. So now let me tell you some
more about...

Unit 9

Well, many young girls dream of becoming models.
They imagine that the life of a model is very
glamorous and exciting. It wasnt like that for me. I
kind of drifted into it by chance. Someone actually
saw me on the street in my school uniform and
thought that I had just the face they wanted for an ad
they were planning. It wasnt some great fashion
shoot for a magazine or anything like that. It was an
advert for washing powder I was the teenage kid
nagging her mum to wash her clothes. It was shown
between the parts of the soap that my friends all
watched at the time and they were very impressed.
In fact, I hadnt really wanted to agree to do it. My
mum thought it would distract me too much from my
studies. So did my teachers. But a woman who lived
next door to us and who was a good friend of the
family persuaded my mum it would be a good idea for
me to do it. Apparently, shed done something similar
when she was a teenager and felt it had brought her
all sorts of benefits.

SCD 10

I must say Im really glad I did agree to it. Since that

first job Ive never really been out of work though
there are obviously some quiet times. I regularly do
fashion shows for a lot of the big designers in
London, Milan, Tokyo, New York, Paris. I love them all
though I suppose London is not quite so thrilling
because its where I grew up. There has to be
something special about New York, I guess, but Paris
is probably my all-time favourite. Its such a romantic
Unfortunately, I seem to get most of my work
modelling casual wear. I suppose I have that kind of
face, not quite glamorous enough for evening
dresses, perhaps, more the girl next door. I do model
quite a lot of wedding clothes and thats really fun.
Ive never been married and I love pretending Im
planning my own special day. Perhaps one day. I
know exactly what Im going to wear even if I havent
found Mr Right yet.
I also do a lot of make-up ads. But not for lipsticks or
mascara. No, I specialise in nail varnish for the toes.
That must be the part of my body that has been
photographed most often. Though not even my own
mother would actually recognise that its me, I dont
Not many models get to go on working after their late
thirties, Im afraid. But I wouldnt want to go on much
later than that. Not that I want to stop working
altogether of course. But I think Id like to get away
from the fashion world totally. Some of my modelling
friends have ended up writing their autobiographies or
training future models. But thats not for me. No my
dream is to qualify as a chef and then open my place
somewhere close to the sea. Im already looking
round for suitable locations.

Hi there, its me, Joe. Im ringing with a party

Oh and the invitation is for you, Anna, and a friend.

us there.
I thought about having it at my place but Mum
suggested holding it at the Beach Hotel instead. Shes

Its on Saturday 16th. Thats the day after we finish
college, at 8 pm. OK?

anything like that, of course. Theyve also got a music

Very beautifully made. I enjoyed the tour afterwards
almost as much, you know when we went round that

pretty terrifying objects but she still made me laugh
with her stories about them.
Zaynab: Absolutely!

1 What caused the delay to the train from London?

We apologise to passengers waiting for trains
between Liverpool and London. Heavy snowfall
has blocked the line north of here causing delays
to the Liverpool train. We are working to clear this
as quickly as possible. The train to London has
also been delayed by bad weather conditions, by
flooding in the Northport area. This train is,
however, expected to arrive within the next half
hour. Signal failure has resulted in the train due in

from London at 10.45 being about five minutes

late. We apologise to passengers for any
inconvenience caused.

Where on earth did I put it?

inside my passport all the time!

Passengers on flight CH351 to Geneva are
requested to go now to Gate 15 where their plane

concerned about connections from Geneva should

Zurich flight CH964 should proceed to the

that flight but that is unlikely to be more than
twenty minutes.

OK. Can you all listen carefully please. I need to give

you some information about next Saturdays table
tennis tournament. The details have changed a bit. Its
not going to be in the Northport Sports Centre as I
told you originally. Its actually going to be at the
Horsham Sports Centre thats spelt H-O-R-S-H-AM. Weve arranged for a couple of coaches to take all
the players there. But please note the coaches wont
leave from the school, theyre going to leave from the
Market Square. So can you all meet there at 9 a.m. on
Saturday? Please dont be late. We wont wait, Im
warning you. So if youre not there in good time, youll
have to make your own way there. Now, what to wear.
You can wear anything that feels comfortable to play
in but Id like you all please to travel in your school
tracksuit. We will look much more professional that
way. It would be sensible to bring a packed lunch.
You can get stuff there if you forget but its quite
So it should be a really good day. There are five
different age categories and we have competitors in
each of these. The best players in each age group will
win a book of their choice. There will be people from
schools all over this region and Im sure well have
some very exciting matches.
After the tournament is over there will be a barbecue
in the evening, so that should be fun. Last year there
was a disco after the tournament and that was a huge
success. You can let your parents know that we
should be back at the Market Square by about half
past ten.

Interviewer: With me in the studio today I have

Michael Murdo who has just written a fascinating
book on great railway stations of the world. Michael, I
imagine your interest in trains and stations started
when you were a small boy?
Michael: Thats right. My younger brother and I were
both always fascinated by trains. He even followed in
our uncles footsteps and became a train driver. It was
our dad who got us both excited by the romance of
rail travel, though. He often used to take us down to
our local station just to look at the engines.
Int: So would you say that you started collecting
material for this book when you were a boy then?
Michael: Not really. But when I was at university the
idea began to take shape and I began keeping photos
and notes that I thought might come in useful one
day. It was only when I got my first job as a teacher
that I actually got round to writing anything up
systematically, though.
Int: What is your own favourite railway station?
Michael: Well the station in that town, Oakworth,
which is in the north of England, in Yorkshire certainly
has a great feel to it. Its been restored as a
nineteenth century station. Theres no electricity, only
gas lights and all the Victorian style telephones still
work. Its been used in several films, not surprisingly. I
have very happy memories of Venice station which I
first saw as a student back-packing round Europe. I
love the way you come out right on to the Grand
Canal. Oberalp is also very special. Its the highest
point on the Swiss Glacier Express route and is a
wonderful tiny station, especially in winter. Theyre all
fantastic places in their different ways. But I guess
that, yes, the one in my home town has to be my
favourite of all.
Interviewer: As part of your book you surveyed a
thousand people, didnt you, to ask for their top
Michael: Thats right. And Grand Central Station in
New York came in first place. The bitter-sweet
atmosphere that many stations have is really captured
well by the 1945 novel, By Grand Central Station I Sat
Down and Wept. Many people find its architecture
beautiful but its not altogether to my taste although it
does have the most fantastic oyster bar!
Interviewer: Do tell us more about your survey. I
image the people you interviewed were mainly men?
Michael: Far from it. I had equal numbers of both
genders. And women seem to love the romance of
stations as much as men do. I had people from a
range of nationalities too. I did limit it to people over
40, though, as I wanted to go for people who had had
the opportunity to see quite a few railway stations.
Int: Fair enough. So what are you planning to write
next? Some thing on airports perhaps?
Michael: Well, they dont have quite the appeal of
stations do they? Not yet, anyway. No Im going to
stay with trains. I wondered about doing something
on the greatest engines of the world but in the end

Ive opted to do something on the great railway

stations of India, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan
and the like. As you can imagine, Im having some
great trips as I prepare to write it

hate it. They have no privacy.

Well, class, today were going to start off by talking a
bit about lions. The lion, as you know, is a member of
the cat family, it is sometimes called the king of the
animals and it is a very special creature. It is unusual
in that it can hunt and kill animals even bigger than
itself. This is because like the wild dog it hunts in a
pack or group. No other wild cat not even the
leopard or the tiger, whom it resembles in other ways
does this.
Lions live in groups which are generally known as
prides. The pride usually has about 12 animals in it
and there are always more lionesses than lions in the
pride. This is because young males, once they get old
enough, tend to go off and join another group of
females as there is usually just one dominant or alpha
male in each group.
Its the female lion who is responsible for hunting for
the pride as well as bringing up the young. She looks
quite different from the male as she does not have a
mane that is the large mass of hair the male lion has
on his head. She probably lacks this because it
means she can run faster and catch food for the
family more easily.
Lions have two or three young every two years. Like
all mammals the mother lion feeds them herself. The
fur of the young is slightly different in that it has some
darker patches on it. These gradually disappear as
the animal gets older.
When standing up the male lion with his large mane

can look very frightening, particularly when he is

upset or angry. He shows he is in an angry mood
when he pulls his lips backwards in a distinctive way
and starts waving his tail. Rivals know then that it is
time for them to leave if they want to avoid a fight.
So, Ive told you a little bit about this beautiful and
interesting creature. Were going to carry on doing
some more work about them. For homework can you
please have a look on the Internet and see what you
can find for tomorrow. Some good photos perhaps?
Or maybe a famous poem or painting? You can show

Thank you for coming along to the school this evening

to hear about the programme of language courses
that we organise each year for our pupils, their
parents and others in the local community. I very
much hope that many of you will decide to come
along to one of these classes. As last year, youll be
able to do English or Spanish but this year weve also
arranged for there to be courses in Arabic and
Russian as a lot of people have requested those.
You can join a class at whatever level is best for you
beginners, intermediate or advanced. Thats apart
from Russian which is not being offered this time at
an intermediate or advanced level. Perhaps next year.
If youre not sure whether a class would be suitable
for you or not, then ring the school secretary and ask
to have a word with Miss Thompson thats T-H-O-MP-S-O-N. We also have a Miss Thomson without a P
on the staff but she deals with physics rather than
languages and so wont be able to help with any
queries about these courses.
Some classes are held in the evenings and some on
Saturday mornings. The former are two and a half
hours and the weekend ones are three hours. Youll
get a break for a coffee or just to stretch your legs in
the middle, of course.
The courses will be held in the maths block. If you
dont already know the school, therell be plenty of
signs showing you the way. If you want to have a look
this evening then youll find it behind the art studio,
which is the modern building you see if you turn left
and left again as you leave this lecture theatre.
If you decide to take one of these courses then you
will be allowed to use our school library. This has
some excellent materials to help you with your
studies. Unfortunately the school caf will not be
open but there are plenty of places nearby where
you can get a drink or a snack.

Right today were going to look at global warming and

how it is affecting Australia. Global warming and
climate change are already particularly noticeable
there. Over the past century Australias temperature
has risen by 0.7 degrees Celsius. This may not sound
a lot but it has already made itself felt in terms of the
climate. Increasing levels of greenhouse gases mean
that temperatures in Australia are expected to rise
another 2 degrees by 2030 and up to 6 more degrees
by 2050. This is of course very serious for the country.
One of the main problems is that of rain. Australia
already has much less rain in many parts of the
country than it used to have. The South East and the
South West are likely to be particularly severely
affected in the future. Curiously enough, the North
West may actually become slightly wetter. The
coastlines in the south and elsewhere are also
expected to experience regular flooding as a result of
rising sea levels.
Australia has many world heritage sites, wonderful
places of natural beauty, and these are badly affected
by what is happening. Coral in the Great Barrier Reef
is already beginning to die. It is only a matter of time
before such famous places as Uluru also known as
Ayers Rock, of course and Shark Bay are seriously
affected too. This would be a tragedy not only for
Australia but also for the world.
It is not only the natural world that will suffer but also
farming. From the farming point of view the rise in
temperatures in itself is not such a bad thing perhaps

as warmer temperatures mean a longer growing

season. However, a certain amount of farmland will be
lost because of rising sea levels. Most serious of all,
the fact that the country will be so much dryer will
cause huge problems for farmers needing water for
their crops to grow.
Many of Australias current problems are a direct result
of the growth of greenhouse gases. Reducing these
would not solve all the problems of global warming but
would do a great deal to help avoid at least some of
the problems. It might not halt the rise in sea levels
though it would certainly slow this down. But it would
give wildlife the breathing space to adapt to changes
and would give the country the necessary time to
develop its health care system to keep up with the
medical problems that are caused by climate change.
Many feel that it is very important that Australia
should follow the lead of such countries as Sweden
and commit to targets of lowering greenhouse gases
by say 60 per cent by 2050. The country is, like others
such as the United States, considering the idea but
has not yet made a firm commitment to do so. If it
fails to do so the consequences are likely to be
extremely serious.

Man: Hello, Rita? Im afraid Ive just missed the

planned. Go straight to the theatre and Ill meet
you there. Ill have to wait for the 6.45. There is a

Woman: Thats right. We didnt see them. You had
the cows, of course, for the cheese business, and
a couple of horses for the kids to ride.
Man: Oh, the old horses have gone, Im afraid. But
the cheese business is still doing well.
3 How will the man get to work?
Man: I dont think I can go to work on my bike
today. Its raining so hard. Can you give me a lift in
the car?
Woman: Well, I suppose I could, but the traffic is
always awful at this time. Cant you catch a bus?
Man: There isnt one that will get me to work on
time. If I do that Ill be late.
Woman: OK then, but wed better leave now! Can
you have your breakfast in the canteen at work?
4 What did the woman look like as a child?
Woman : Have I ever shown you this photo of my

really like these big round ones. The problem is,
they cost too much.

the same, but theyre much cheaper. I mean,
theyre the same shape and colour. You could get

others, but thats all right.

Man: Can you come and meet me after work at the
Irish bar in Green Street?
Woman : OK, but Ive never been there. Youll have
to give me directions.

Man: Fine. Its easy. Come out of the station and

turn right. Walk along to the crossroads, go
straight on, and then cross the road and take the
second turning on the left. The bar is on the left,
just before you come to a cinema.
Woman : OK. That sounds quite easy. See you

Part 2
Hello. Im Neil Sanders, and Id like to tell you how I
became interested in the environment and
environmental issues. It all started for me with an
interest in animals. When I was a child I lived in
central London, and we didnt even have a cat in the
house, but my fathers older brother was a farmer, and
we used to spend some time with him in school
holidays. He let me help feed his pigs, and thats how
it started.
When I left school I studied zoology at university, and
went into teaching for a few years, before I became a
producer of radio programmes. I helped to make a
series on famous zoos and on rare animals. Then I
decided I wanted to travel, and I also had some ideas
I wanted to research and write about, so I left my safe
job and went off to see the world. I started to learn
more about environmental issues in the different
places I saw, and I wrote some articles for
newspapers, and then a book.
Thats how I became a journalist with a special
interest in the environment. When I started, I didnt
realise how exciting that job can be! Its taken me all
over the world, to places most people never see, and
Ive met some fantastic people. But Ive also been in
several car crashes, Ive been ill in places with no
hospital, and once someone tried to shoot me!
As we all know now, there are some big challenges to
our future on this planet. We have to develop new
ways of producing power, using wind and waves
instead of oil. We have to stop destroying the
rainforest and its wonderful wildlife. But of course the
most important challenge is global warming, and what
we can do to end it.
I know that many ordinary people are now doing lots
of good things, like growing vegetables or cycling
instead of driving cars, but what we really need to
do is persuade governments to take action. If we use
our votes wisely, we can all help to save the world.
I really believe that.
As for myself at the moment Im getting ready for
the international conference on the environment this
autumn. Im one of the speakers. Ive just completed
my latest book, which is about the oil industry, and it
would be great to relax for a few weeks. But theres
always too much to do, so no chance

First, breakfast is served from 7 to 9, and thats in the

tour of the city of Trinidad which weve arranged for
tomorrow. Yes? Good! Well, the coach will pick us up
at 9.30, so can you all meet me here at reception at
9.15? Please dont be late, because we have a full
days programme!
Well walk around the old city in Trinidad, and we
should have time to visit the cathedral and also the
museum which I do recommend its small but
there are some really lovely things on display.
Weve booked lunch for you at an excellent seafood
restaurant thats included, of course, in the cost of
the ticket, but youll need to bring some money with
you for drinks and tips those are extras.
After that, on the way back, well stop just for about
half an hour at a very pretty village, typical of this part
of the country, where there are some shops selling the
silver objects that the local people make. They make
very attractive presents or souvenirs to take home.
Dinner is back here in the hotel at 7. Oh now, theres
one more thing I should mention. The Hotel Flora has
no pool, but if you want to swim, they have an
arrangement with the Hotel Karolina you spell it

there are some at very reasonable prices.

Liz: Really? Do you think so? Well, you earn a lot

more than I do
Pete: Honestly, Liz, after everything Mum and Dad
have done for you
Liz: Dont lecture me, Pete! Youre a single man with a
high salary. You cant imagine how expensive life is
with three kids to educate.

afford just once in your life to put your hand in your
wallet for our parents on this very special occasion.

for good leather boots. Why dont you go in and
try them on?

havent got much of my birthday money left!

Do you want to come and meet us somewhere?

good and be really useful. The only thing I still

Woman 1: So, Estelle, youre only 20 but youre
already a very successful ballet dancer. Youve made
your name both here and abroad in some of the major
roles. What first made you first interested in the
ballet? Was it the film Ballet Shoes as it has been for
so many other young girls?
Woman 2 : Well, I did love that film and I always loved
reading ballet stories too. But my love for ballet
started even earlier than that. The girl who lived next
door used to do it every Saturday. She was a couple
of years older than me but we used to play together. I
thought she was wonderful and wanted to be like her
in every way!
Woman 1: So how old were you when you started
Woman 2: I started when I was only about 4, I think. I
know when I was five I was going to lessons every
Saturday and by the time I was 9 I was spending all
my free time on ballet in some way or another. I first
danced in front of an audience when I was 7. I fell
over but it didnt stop me wanting to make it my
career even then.
Woman 1: So do you still love it?
Woman 2: Absolutely! Whats not to love! Youre
working to such wonderful music all the time that
has to be the best thing. Then you get to dance with
other dancers from all over the world. You travel, you
have lots of friends. I feel so lucky in every way.
Woman 1: But you have to put in very long hours of
Woman 2: Yes, its not all easy, of course. But I enjoy
the practising too in fact. And Im lucky because my
mum usually travels with me so Im not lonely or
anything like that. I suppose the only thing Im sorry
about is that I havent spent as much time at ordinary
school as most people. Im pretty ignorant about lots
of things. But maybe one day
Woman 1: So, how do you see your future?
Woman 2: Well, Im really keen to work and study
abroad. Ive had some great times in Moscow and in
Paris in particular. But I think Id like to study in New
York next. Theyre doing some very exciting work
there at the moment.
Woman 1: But a dancers life doesnt go on for as
long as other careers, does it? Do you think youll end
up as a ballet teacher?
Woman 2: Well, thats always an option. And several
ballet dancers I know have gone on to work on TV. I
quite fancy that. But what Id really like I think would
be to move into something quite different. I can see
myself running a little seaside guesthouse, I think! It
would make a brilliant contrast to my life now. And I
think Id like that when the time comes.
Woman 1: Well, thank you very much, Estelle.

OK, so first this morning I want to give you some
information about this years school play. This year
were going to put on a play called Show Me. Several
of you had parts in last years production and you
were extremely good too, if I may say so. I hope that
you and others as well will try out for a part in this
years play.
As you know the play is a highlight of every school
year here. Usually we do a comedy as was the case
last year. But this year were trying something
different. Its a musical! It should be really good. Its
full of life and there are excellent parts for both boys
and girls.
You may have seen another musical by the same
writers a film was made of it. Its called Green
Cheese and took place on the moon. The one youre
going to be doing is set on a tropical island. At least
that should be a bit easier in terms of decorating the
stage and so on.
So if youre interested in taking part please come
along to a meeting on Friday, no, sorry, its actually
tomorrow. Youll be told a lot more about the play and
what taking part would involve and hopefully will then
decide that you want to go for it. Oh, yes, I forgot to
tell you where the meeting is. Itll be in the gym.
Unfortunately, it cant be in the lecture hall as the
headmaster has a meeting in there then.
There are plenty of opportunities for you to take part.
There are actually thirty eight different characters in
all. Sixteen of those are non-speaking roles. But
everyone has to sing. You dont have to be a brilliant
singer for one of the smaller parts but its best if you
can at least sing in tune, of course! If singings not for
you, then there are other things you can do. Lets of
helpers will be needed. Thatll be for all sorts of
different backstage and front of house tasks.
So now are there any questions

to a bad week.
Man: Oh, I dont know. I enjoyed our lesson with the
new English teacher. I wasnt so sure about her but I
always like it when we do acting in class.
Woman: Oh I hate standing up in front of the class
and acting! It was my worst lesson of the day. But I
did like the teacher she didnt make me take part. I
think shell probably be really nice.
Man: I hope youre right! Im not sure yet. Im not
really that keen on English. I think we should do more
useful stuff. Like learning how to write good texts and
stuff. You know, how to say things as briefly as
possible, using lots of abbreviations.
Woman: You mean like L8 for late and stuff like that?
Man: Yes, and LOL for lots of love.
Woman: Well we learn how to do that anyway. We
dont need to study that in class surely. But I do agree
that there are probably some other more useful things
that we could spend time on.
Man: Did you see that documentary last night about
how English lessons have changed over the years?
Woman: No, did you?
Man: I recorded it but havent watched it yet. I
thought it could be useful for that talk weve got to do
next week.
Woman: Thats a good idea. Im glad weve got to talk
about schools in the past. Its a more interesting
subject than some of the other pairs were given.
Man: Thats right. Anyway, do you fancy getting
together over the weekend and doing some work on
Woman: Sure. How about on Sunday? Maybe we
could do a bit of our science project together too.
Man: Well, Ive already finished mine. I actually
handed it in today!
Woman: OK, well Ill do mine on Sunday morning if
you want to come round in the afternoon then.
