I/ON A TRIP A paris vacation Kathy is on a one-week vacation from her job as a journalist. It is the first vacation she has had in a long time. She hasn’t had a vacation in a long time. She is in Paris to attend her best friend's wedding. She has come to Paris to attend her best friend’s wedding. This is the third time she has been in Paris. (This isn't the first time she has been in Paris. Kathy has been in Paris before.) She first came to Paris as a student, ten years ago. (The first time she came to Paris was as a student ten years ago.) The last time was two years ago, when she came on business. During that trip, she was so busy that she didn't have time to see any of the sights. This time she plans to relax and enjoy herself. Kathy arrived in Paris two days ago/ the day before yesterday, which was Saturday. Her plane landed at 3:00, two hours behind schedule. Her plane was supposed to arrive at 1:00. After arriving, Kathy visited with her friend and met her friend's fiancé for the first time. He is a very successful Italian businessman. The wedding was yesterday. It was a small wedding, but very nice. After the wedding, the newlyweds left for a skiing trip in the Swiss Alps. They went by rental car. Unfortunately, they got tied up in traffic. They didn't arrive at their hotel until late last night. Fortunately, they had confirmed reservations, so they had no trouble checking in. They plan to stay there until Thursday. Then they will travel on to Salzburg, in Austria. They are going to meet up with Kathy there before she returns to the U.S. The three of them are going to stay in a castle hotel ten miles outside Salzburg. The hotel is on a lake, and the view from the hotel is wonderful. The hotel is in a five hundred-year-old castle. It used to belong to an Austrian prince. Everyone is looking forward to staying here. 2/today’s activities Today, in Paris, Kathy is enjoying herself. This morning she took a walk through the streets of Paris. After her walk, at around 9:00, she enjoyed a delicious cup of coffee in a small cafe. At 10:00 she went to the Notre Dame Cathedral where she listened to some beautiful organ music. Now she's at the Louvre, the famous art museum. It's 1:30. She has been there for two hours, since 11:30. She's looking at the Mona Lisa, one of the world's most famous paintings. In another hour she's going to leave the museum and do some shopping. She wants to buy a nice dress for herself and some perfume for her mother. This evening, she has a date to meet someone for dinner. Can you guess who he is? She's going to have dinner with Pierre, a famous photographer. She interviewed him two years ago. Since then they have kept in touch. They have written to each other several times. Kathy is interested in doing a project with him. She would do the writing, and he would take the pictures. She’s looking forward to talk to him about the project. She doesn't know it, but Pierre has romantic intentions. He thinks she's very attractive. 3,Florence and Beyond Tomorrow Kathy is going to leave Paris and fly to Florence, Italy. She's planning to stay in Florence for one day, until Wednesday evening. Pierre would like to go to Florence with her. If they go together, it could be the beginning of something beautiful. On the other hand, Kathy may not want that kind of relationship with Pierre. In any case, Kathy is planning to enjoy Florence. This will be her first visit there. The last time she was in Italy she visited Rome, but she didn't have time to go to Florence. She's looking forward to seeing some of the beautiful old buildings and great works of art. From Florence, she's going to take a train to Salzburg, where she will join her friends. They are going to meet her at the station. She has never been to Salzburg. It will be her first time. Like so many other cities in Europe, Salzburg has an interesting history. She wants to visit the place where Mozart was born. He was born there more than 200 years ago. Kathy only has time to stay in Salzburg for a couple of days. On Friday she and her friends are going to
Plants and trees help reduce global warming because they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. there have been several accidents. Like solar energy. and other wildlife. When we burn fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are not renewable. The energy of falling water is converted into electricity. Here are some of the ways we get energy. We burn fossil fuels. the polar ice caps will begin to melt. This leaves us with the problem of how to balance our growing needs for energy with our need to protect our environment. Dams can cause problems for wildlife such as fish. She has to leave Saturday evening. dams help us manage our water supplies. There are also other ways to get energy. There is also the problem of nuclear waste. When a large amount of carbon gases are in the atmosphere. which is killing many of our forests. Nuclear reactors are not completely safe. Many people hope that the use of solar energy will increase. For example. we need energy for heat. As the supply decreases. we burn gasoline. to run our cars. In addition. The sun is another source of energy. Hydroelectric power comes from the energy of falling water. 2. All of us want progress and a comfortable life. The radiation from nuclear waste products is very dangerous. our world begins to heat up. are produced. as you can see. solar energy is still expensive and underdeveloped. If we use less energy. Another problem is air pollution. and large amounts of oil spill into the ocean. These accidents have caused the deaths of many fish. Nuclear energy also has problems. Though a week isn't very long. the price will increase. She is glad she came. and for transportation. oil. Sometimes there are accidents. air pollution causes acid rain. we need energy for light. There is also the problem of global warming. we need energy. many of our great forests are being cut down or burned. it is only useful in areas where there is a lot of wind. fossil fuels cause many problems. However. where she will catch her flight back to the States. because it's safe for the environment. such as coal. the use of wind power is still quite limited. So. Kathy's memories of this trip will last a lifetime. then the rate of global warming is reduced. When it's cold. we must also look ahead to the future and take care of our beautiful world. we need energy for transportation. There is always some risk of an accident. When it's dark. How about hydroelectric power? Can it help us move away from fossil fuels? Hydroelectric power is a clean source of energy. it's important for us to move away from fossil fuels as soon as possible. as you can see. However. the number of dams must be limited. One problem is safety.OUR ENERGY NEEDS For people to live on our planet. Solar cells can convert sunlight directly into electricity. We also get energy from hydroelectric power stations. There may even be war. Large oil tankers transport oil across the oceans. Fossil fuels are an important source of energy. and natural gas. What’s about the future? One of the main problems we now face is how to reduce the use of fossil fuels. When we want to travel. We need energy for heat. such as carbon dioxide. There is also the problem of transport. to generate electricity. If there are more plants. . Wind power is also a safe source of energy. and the oceans will rise. II/ENERGY SOURCES 1. If it gets into the environment. One reason is that the supply of fossil fuels is running out. Our forests are also being killed by acid rain. waste gases. birds. As a result. building dams does change the environment. However. Therefore. However. conservation is very important. for light. Burning fossil fuels causes air pollution. The waste gases enter our atmosphere and cause pollution. She will fly to Paris. it will help with the problem. radiation has escaped into the atmosphere and into water supplies. it can cause serious health problems and even death. In some cases. If the temperature rises. which comes from oil. So. In the past few years. We also need energy to run our factories. which damages our environment. Fossil fuels include coal. However. There are several reasons why this is important. For example.attend a concert.
