Задание 1

Dialogue А

А: I can’t understand anything. The case is so complicated.

B: It’s because the criminals killed the investigator when he was almost ready with evidence.

A: What will the family do?

В: I think they’ll hire a private investigator who’ll be as smart as Sherlock Holmes.

Dialogue В

A: I think the main character is courageous.

B: And in my opinion he is naughty. He took that boat and went sailing without permission.

A: But he stayed calm in that terrible storm, didn’t he?

B: Yes, he did. But he didn’t think about his mother’s feelings, did he?

Dialogue C

A: Will you turn the sound down? I can’t concentrate when something is blowing up and crashing.

B: Just wait a few minutes and the gang will be caught.

A: How can you watch all this when you know the end?

B: You see, special effects thrill me.

Dialogue D

A: Sorry, I missed the beginning. What are those ugly green creatures doing?

B: They are trying to defend themselves and their territory.

A: Who’s attacking them?

B: Visitors from outer space.

Задание 2

A. I hadn’t shopped during the sales in the past. So last Saturday I thought I’d try it with some friends... Well, it was chaos! ... How can people shop, being pushed all the time? I mean, okay, the prices are a bit cheaper but I’d better stick to my discount stores, thank you very much...

B. I was just furious! I was expecting the bill to total around forty dollars, but boy was I surprised when I saw it was for sixty-five! The first thing I did was to check it, to see if we’d been overcharged... It was correct, but I didn’t think the food or the service was really worth it.

C. I don’t like going to the supermarket all the time. I know people who go once or twice a week, but I believe once a fortnight is fine... Well, this isn’t really the cheapest place to shop,... but I know I can find a wide range of things there.

D. I knew about the sales, so I got to the department store very early... and I knew it wouldn’t be too crowded at that hour... I was lucky to have the store to myself for a while... Anyway, everything was cheap... so I left a couple of hours later with three full shopping bags... Believe me, it’s a good idea to avoid the crowds.

E. Well, I think our everyday life will change quite a bit. We will be able to buy everything by computer, even clothes and shoes. We won’t even have to try anything on, because the computer will show us exactly what we will look like in them.

Задания 3-8

Julia: Suzy, you know, I’ve just returned from the new supermarket.

Suzy: The one round the corner? I didn’t expect it to open till next weekend.

Julia: Ann told me the same but yesterday morning I found an advertisement in my mailbox. They promised great discounts on the opening day. So I decided to look for myself.

Suzy: Oh, why didn’t you phone me?

Julia: I did but your mother said you were at the courses.

Suzy: Yes, I’ve just come back. Did you buy anything?

Julia: In fact I was looking for a present for my sister. I wanted a music CD or a video but they didn’t have any she likes. Then I saw a nice bag but it was too expensive. At last I got a really nice make-up set.

Suzy: And was it cheap?

Julia: Well, in other shops it costs seven pounds. Last week I saw it for five pounds and here I’ve got it for four pounds fifty.

Suzy: That’s good. I hope I’ll be able to go there on Friday or Saturday.

Julia: I think I’ll join you. But, listen, they are giving a pop-show there on Sunday. How about going then?

Suzy: It would be great but it’s my mother’s birthday and I wanted to get a present for her beforehand.

Julia: It’s a pity I’m busy on Friday. I’ve got an arrangement with my dentist.

Suzy: That’s OK, go to the dentist, I’ll do some cooking and the next day we’ll go together.

Задание 1

Dialogue А

A: What am I to do?

В: Walk along the line of men. Try not to be nervous.

A: And if I recognize my attacker, what’s next?

B: Just nod your head. Don’t say anything. Remember that the policemen are watching you and will come to your help immediately.

Dialogue В

A: I’m cold, hungry and tired.

В: Why not light a fire on the bank and cook something?

A: Oh, our matches are wet and foxes have stolen all the food!

B: Then I’ll try to make a fire without matches and you’ll try to find some berries in the forest. But don’t get lost!

Dialogue C

A: I’ll never, never forgive him.

B: Don’t cry my dear. Time will fly and you’ll understand that you can’t live without him.

A: But he’s dating my best friend!

B: All men are the same.

A: You don’t say so...

Dialogue D

A: The building will be blown up in two minutes!

B: But I’ m going to find that bomb.

A: Don’t be a fool. Save yourself!

B: And how about all those people upstairs?

A: We aren’t able to help them...

Задание 2

A. Chat rooms are great! You can talk to lots of people at the same time. You can exchange views and ideas without any fear to seem stupid or something like that. And you can make up so much about yourself. To tell the truth I am a bit shy with new people in real life. In a chat room everything is quite different. I find it so cool!

B. I’ve got a lot of Internet boyfriends. They sometimes ask me out, but I just say no because I think they are all fake. Of course, I chat with them online and share some news but I always keep in mind that it’s all just a game. Some of my classmates tried Internet dating and were absolutely disappointed.

C. I find the Internet really useful with my school work and catching up with my friends... plus chat rooms are a great way of making friends in different countries. But I don’t give out where I live, except maybe the city... Of course I stay friendly, talk about common interests but I never give out my name, my telephone number, my address, anything personal that would let people contact me anywhere except online.

D. I think Internet dating is a load of rubbish! How can you say you love someone when you don’t even know them? I could say that I’m 14 when I’m really 40 or something. People lie all the time! It’s so stupid how some people can be so easily cheated. Face to face and eyes to eyes — that’s quite different.

E. What is wrong about the social nets? I’m sure that most people who use social discovery services just want to meet new people and have only good intentions. My parents have found a lot of friends from their school and student life. Just don’t spend all of your time in the net and that’s all. You shouldn’t be dependent on anything.

Задания 3-8

Steve: Hi, Lisa, it’s Steve... How are you doing?

Lisa: Steve! I’m fine, thanks... What’s up?

Steve: Well, you know, it’s my birthday on Friday the 12th of June... I’ve decided to have a party... on the Saturday of course. Will you be able to come?

Lisa: So that’s the 13th of June... yeah, sure, I’ll come... Is it going to be at your place or are we going out?

Steve: Actually, my house is too small, so I’m going to have the party at my cousin Paul’s house. It’s just around the corner on Church Street.

Lisa: Well, tell me the address then.

Steve: Of course, it’s Church Street... oh, and another thing... it’s going to be a fancy-dress party.

Lisa: Really? You mean we have to wear a costume? That’s great! Is it going to have a theme or can we dress up any way we want?

Steve: Actually, I wanted it to have a theme... It would be great if all of us were dressed up as Indians or something... But then my cousin said it would be boring... So, yes, you can dress up any way you want.

Lisa: Wow, we’re going to have a great time! And what about the music? Are you going to have a DJ or a band — you know, live music?

Steve: Do you remember the DJ I had last year? Everybody loved the music she played. So, I’ve asked her to come. She’s going to play all the latest hits and some classic Rock songs, too...

Lisa: Great... And what about your birthday cake? I remember last year it was in the shape of a guitar...

Steve: Well, this year I’m going to have an ice cream cake in the shape of a motorcycle... What do you think about it?

Lisa: You’re always full of surprises... I’ve got to see it to believe it... Hey! You didn’t tell me what time the party starts.

Steve: I’ve arranged it for eight o’clock. How does that sound?

Lisa: OK ... I guess... I’ve got volleyball practice until seven thirty, so I’ll be there at about half past eight... Don’t cut the cake until I get there, OK?

Steve: OK, we’ll wait for you, don’t worry...

Задание 1

Dialogue А

A: How lovely these figures of dogs are! How many of them have you got?

B: Let me see. About a hundred.

A: How have they appeared on your shelves?

B: Each one has its own story. But the first dog was my granny’s gift.

Dialogue В

A: You are packing your luggage, aren’t you?

B: Yes, I am. My flight is in four hours.

A: Where are you going this time?

B: Africa. My dream has come true. It’s the only continent I haven’t explored yet.

Dialogue С

A: Let me see this album. The photos are wonderful. Who has taken them?

В: I myself.

A: And who taught you to work in the Photoshop?

B: My elder brother did.

Dialogue D

A: I wonder if you’re going to be a sailor?

B: No, not at all.

A: Why do you have all these models of ships then?

В: I simply enjoy making them.

Задание 2

A. I spend most of my time doing odd jobs around the house. I really like painting and decorating, though I can do most things. If I run out of things to do at home, I usually offer to help the neighbours. I hate having nothing to do. It makes me feel ill at ease.

B. My parents always have people for dinner on Saturday nights, or we get invitations to have dinner with friends. Sometimes we go out to restaurants. We like Chinese food and there are also plenty of good Indian restaurants. By the way, I say ‘We’ because I rarely go out separately from my family. We are great friends and I feel equally comfortable in the company of my parents’ friends.

C. I go shopping. I adore it and I go shopping for clothes at least twice a month. My dad usually gives me a certain sum, and besides, I have taken a Saturday job. Of course, sometimes I haven’t got enough money. Then I go window shopping and decide what I’m going to buy when I’m rich.

D. I go round the clubs, meeting friends, dancing, listening to music, that sort of thing. I try to go out every Saturday and stay out until about two or three. I just can’t stand staying at home. On weekdays I just have a short walk with my friends and try to be in bed by midnight. School success is important for me.

E. In the evening they watch television mostly. My parents have never gone out much. At first because I and later my sister were too young. Then they just got used to staying at home. We’ve got satellite TV so there are a lot of programmes to watch. Mum says it gives her something to talk about when she is at work the next day.

Задания 3-8

Susan: Hello, Brad.

Brad: Hello, who is it? I can’t hear you very well.

Susan: It’s me, Susan. Guess what! I’m calling from Cyprus.

Brad: Cyprus? You’re joking. What are you doing there?

Susan: I’m here on holiday. My parents wanted to surprise me. It’s a gift for my birthday.

Brad: Mmm, you’re so lucky! When did you get there?

Susan: Well, we arrived last Tuesday and we are going to stay for another week. The flight was super! It was my first time on the plane! And when we got here, we hired a car because we wanted to tour the whole island.

Brad: It sounds great! Who are you there with?

Susan: Just with my parents. My aunt and uncle wanted to come too, but they couldn’t leave their jobs.

Brad: Well, tell me a bit about the island. What’s the weather like?

Susan: It’s sunny every day, so it’s quite warm. I like it because I can go swimming and sunbathe all day long. Actually, it rarely rains here — nothing like England.

Brad: So, is your hotel at the seaside resort?

Susan: No, actually, it’s in the capital, Nicosia. It’s a beautiful old hotel with a nice view of the city.

Brad: How about the people?

Susan: Oh, they’re quite friendly and hospitable and most of them speak English. So, I don’t have any problems, even if I go alone. But I’ve also made a few friends, and we go cycling together.

Brad: What is there to eat on the island?

Susan: Brad! You always think about food! Well, we have been to a couple of traditional restaurants for lunch where we had fish and vegetables. For dessert, we had oranges and figs with honey. It was very nice.

Brad: That sounds delicious, but you know I prefer steaks.

Susan: I know. Enough about food!

Brad: OK, what are you doing tomorrow?

Susan: Tomorrow, we are going on a day cruise to a small island near Cyprus. It’s full of mountains. I’ll send you a postcard from there.

Brad: OK, have a nice time!

Susan: Thanks. See you next week! Bye!

Задание 1

Dialogue А

А: Му dear, you should have breaks or you’ll spoil your eyesight.

В: I can’t stop, mum. The plot is so fascinating!

A: But you should have time for other things to do. You can’t always live the lives of the bookish characters.

B: Maybe one day I’ll become a writer. That’ll be real life for me.

Dialogue В

A: Could you help me with my choice? I can’t decide which instrument is better.

B: They are both first-rate. But the one you are holding now can be used professionally.

A: Really? I’ve never thought about music as a profession. For me it’s a wonderful pastime.

B: Then pay attention to the instrument opposite you. It’s of good quality but a little bit cheaper...

Dialogue C

A: What a wonderful portrait! Who is this woman?

B: She is my grandmother.

A: I especially like the soft look of her eyes. What’s the name of the artist who painted your granny?

В: I did it myself.

Dialogue D

A: It’s terribly hot. Let’s go to the swimming pool.

B: All right. I know that you are good at swimming. When did you begin doing it?

A: I was five or six when my father started teaching me.

В: Was your first lesson a success?

A: It was. Father called me a duckling and since that time swimming has been my hobby.

Задание 2

A. To tell the truth I love shopping and I love clothes. I rarely go shopping with a particular thing in mind. I buy whatever I like and try to match it with something I have at home; if I can’t find anything to match it with, I get another excuse to go shopping again. I own clothes in various colours, so I almost always have something to match.

B. It depends on my mood and my budget. Generally, I shop when I need to. But I can be somewhat impulsive, buying something just because I really like it. Usually later I can feel guilty for having spent the money. No, clothes-shopping for me is not a great experience... it can be fun, but I always have this slight sense of wanting to get through it as fast as I can.

C. My shopping habits usually depend on whether I go alone or with a friend. If I go alone then I tend to look at what I want for as long as I want, I try on things, and sometimes I can leave a fortune at the shop. If I go with a friend I make sure we go into stores that both of us would enjoy — I try not to try on clothes as I don’t want to make them wait for me, and I watch out for my spending limit.

D. I love going shopping, but how much I buy and what I buy changes every time I go. Sometimes I’d buy a lot of clothes but other times I’d just buy a few black things. Somehow lately my wardrobe has been getting less and less colourful. It used to be full of bright things but slowly I’m buying more and more black. I guess it’s partly because colourful clothes can be hard to find at a low cost.

E. I almost always shop alone. I like to take my time and I also hate when people encourage me to buy things just because they fit. For me to buy something, I have to love the way it looks on me and I have to feel good and comfortable in it. Also, I never really have a plan when shopping. I am an impulsive buyer in the worst way, particularly when it comes to shoes.

Задания 3-8

Ian: Hi, Kate. How are you getting on?

Kate: Hey, what are you doing here? I didn’t expect you until later.

Ian: Well, I’ve already finished everything I had to do for school, so I thought I’d come and help you. I know you’ve had a busy day with your party.

Kate: I’ve had an extremely busy day, and it hasn’t finished yet. I’ve still got a lot to do before all the rest come.

Ian: Have you got everything you need?

Kate: Well, I did the shopping yesterday evening, but I haven’t bought juice and ice-cream.

Ian: OK, I’ll do that. Anything else to buy?

Kate: Let me think... Oh, I’ve quite forgotten... Mary is allergic to some juices. Could you get a bottle of mineral water for her?

Ian: Yes, sure. Kate, what’s the matter with your CD-player?

Kate: Just think, my little brother dropped it yesterday, so that’s the end of my music. You know, he is sometimes a naughty devil. And now I don’t know what to do.

Ian: Yes, it’s always the same story with little kids. Don’t worry, I’ll get my own on the way from the

shop. Do whatever else you have left to do.

Kate: So nice of you. Then I’ll go back to cooking. Fortunately mother has done some of it. But I still have two salads to make.

Ian: Maybe I could help you in anything else? The shopping won’t take much time.

Kate: When you’ve got back, can you lay the table? Here’s the table cloth and knives and forks.

Ian: OK, I’ll be back in less than an hour.

Задание 1

Dialogue А

A: Did you buy sausages?

В: No, I want to buy them but I forgot.

A: So, there will be nothing for supper, I’m afraid.

B: But what about ice-cream, which I bought three days ago?

A: Let me see if anything is left from it.

Dialogue В

A: What strange noise! Is your son playing a new computer game?

B: No, this time he’s tidying his room. He’s the only one who can operate our new appliance.

A: Oh, I see.

Dialogue C

A: The smell is delicious. Is it your famous apple pie?

B: Yes, it is. It’ll be ready in five minutes.

A: How long does it usually take you to bake it?

B: Twenty five minutes.

A: And what about the temperature?

B: It should be about 200 degrees.

Dialogue D

A: I’m cold. I’d like a cup of hot tea or coffee.

B: It’s a pity I can’t boil water. Something is wrong with our electric device.

A: Can you repair it?

B: I’ll try my best.

Задание 2

A. I always take an extra key because I’m incredibly forgetful and I often leave my keys at home, and pull the door closed behind me with the keys still on the kitchen table. So, if I take an extra key, I don’t have to call my mum or disturb our neighbor, who also keeps one for us.

B. I never go anywhere without a bar of chocolate. I always have one in my bag in case I get hungry. The trouble, of course, is that the more I think about this chocolate in my bag the more hungry I feel, so then I eat it. And a moment later I start to panic that I haven’t got any more and I can hardly wait for the break to run to the school canteen to buy another bar. And so it goes on.

C. I always take a notebook and a pen of some kind or just a pencil. My hobby is drawing and I need to have something to draw with if I see something interesting. Especially, I like to draw faces of people I meet and sometimes they get annoyed if they see me look at them and then draw something in my notebook. But I don’t care about it. I dream of becoming an artist, and portraits attract me most of all.

D. I always have a penknife with me, it makes me feel safe in any situation, though I have never used it in any fight. Actually, it’s a special penknife, it was my father’s and it’s got a lovely handle. But it’s useful if I need to cut something like an apple. And once I even used it to free a kitten tied to a tree by somebody.

E. Of course, teachers say we don’t need mobile phones at school, and we are not allowed to use them in class. But it makes me feel much happier to have it with me, because mum often calls me, especially after classes, and checks where I am at the moment. And on my way back from school I use it as a player. Twenty minutes of music while walking home are enough to cheer myself up after a school day.

Задания 3-8

Max: Hi, Susie. I’ve heard you’re going to Nepal with your parents. Lucky you are. When exactly are you going?

Susie: We haven’t decided yet. Mum can’t choose between the weather and low season.

Max: What do you mean?

Susie: You see, if we go there in April, we’ll meet fewer tourists because the main tourist season is in summer. But if we go in summer, say, in August, we’ll have better weather.

Max: Well, if I were you, I would prefer to avoid crowds of tourists and go there out of season. Are you going to fly there?

Susie: I think so. It’s really a long way from here. Flying will be much quicker.

Max: As for my family, we prefer to drive overland. Dad is an excellent driver and while travelling by car we can stop anywhere and see a lot of interesting places.

Susie: Yes, but it’s going to take weeks to get there by car, and my parents haven’t got the time. We’d rather rent a car when we get to the place.

Max: Are you going to stay in a hotel? It would be much cheaper to go camping.

Susie: Oh, I know your idea of taking a tent everywhere and saving money in such a way. Mum and I are not camping people, we need at least some comfort. Dad is going to book hotels in three places and as for saving money, I hope we’ll be able to do it in a different way.

Max: Share your ideas.

Susie: It will be cheaper if we take a guide book. That way we’ll avoid hiring a local guide.

Max: Well, that’s a good idea. By the way, I can help you somehow.

Susie: Really? In what way?

Max: You know that my uncle has travelled all around the world. Just last week I saw an excellent guide book of Nepal at his place. I don’t think he’ll refuse to lend it to you.

Susie: That would be great. I’ll have time to read up about the place before we go there.

Задание 2

A. Reading a book and watching television are both entertaining. Although I prefer watching television more than reading, sometimes it’s good to have alternative to make my life interesting and enjoyable. Reading gives me a sense of peace and relaxation, especially when I’m tired of the loud and busy city around me. Watching television wakes up my emotions in another way and I love the acting, music and sceneries.

B. The advantage of reading a book is that it’s portable and can be enjoyed anywhere. I used to bring along my favorite book anywhere I went just so I could read it when I’m free. Watching television is very time consuming while reading is not. It can take long hours, days or months to finish your favorite television series or you can just pick out the book series and finish reading it in just a short moment.

C. Reading books requires certain level of your language knowledge in order to have full understanding of an event happening whereas watching television is a different matter. You can easily interpret the incident that is showing on the screen with the help of motion pictures, background music and sceneries. Unlike reading a book, a person is required much less language knowledge to have a general idea of the plot.

D. You can improve and learn new languages through both reading and watching television. No matter what kind of books you choose to read, it will help you in reducing grammar mistakes or enlarging your vocabulary. On the other hand, watching TV can give you something you can’t get from reading books. Accents and slangs can be picked up from TV programmes which will be useful when socializing with people from different parts of continents.

E. Whenever I’m bored, my initial thought about what I’m going to do is either to watch television or to read a book. Both are enjoyable, but I still prefer watching television. Reading requires concentration, silence and a lot of thinking while they’re not much needed for watching movies or series and you can easily talk and joke around with your friends or families while you’re watching a show, which is absolutely impossible while reading.

Задания 3-8

Paul: Ann, did you like your trip to the safari park?

Ann: That was lovely. I enjoyed it very much. It’s a pity you didn’t join us.

Paul: To tell the truth, I don’t like places like zoos or safari parks. I think that animals should live in their natural world: in the jungle, in the forest, in the sea.

Ann: I hate zoos too. Lions and tigers in the cages look so sad. But safari parks are different. Animals are free to walk and what’s more, they can follow their instincts. Males fight each other for the attention of the female and the strongest win. The result is that cute baby animals are being born throughout the season. Sometimes visitors are lucky enough to watch a birth in progress, and see as the baby takes its first steps!

Paul: Maybe you are right. But all the zoos must be closed and animals must be sent back to the wild!

Ann: No, you don’t understand. Animals that were born in zoos and lived there all their lives can’t live in the wild. Do you remember the film we watched together? It was about two monkeys that were returned to the jungle from the zoo. They had no chance and they died.

Paul: OK, you have won. People should build more safari parks. Animals can run there, they feel free and they are safe there. And the best thing is not to put animals in the zoos. But will people stop doing it?

Ann: It’s a difficult question. Safari parks occupy very large territories which humans sometimes need for agricultural, industrial or political reasons. It’s easier for people to put animals into cages on a smaller territory. Then it’s not so problematic to check the animals’ food, and make sure that they are healthy .... Oh! Look at this magazine. There are nice pictures of a safari park in Africa. And there is an interesting story.

Paul: Let’s buy the magazine. I’d like to know more about safari parks.

Задание 1

Dialogue А

A: Hello! Can you help me?

В: ГП do my best. What’s the matter?

A: I’ve just finished my shopping in that large supermarket round the corner. When I was going to pay for my purchase, I found out that my wallet had disappeared.

B: How did they let you come here without paying the money?

A: I was lucky to have some cash in my eyeglasses case.

B: Maybe you’ll find your wallet at home?

Dialogue В

A: The water today is a bit chilly, isn’t it?

B: Right, but it’ll be warmer by 10 o’clock.

A: Why are you so sure about it?

B: I’ve been swimming in this bay for ten years since we moved here. By the way, it’s the most comfortable place in thirty miles. The water isn’t deep and the bottom is sandy.

A: And the rocks cover everywhere and everything from the wind.

B: Sure.

Dialogue C

A: Look at the couple in the middle of the hall, our host’s cousins. They are perfect dancers.

B: I’ve noticed that they are gracious and feel the music very well. I’ve always wanted to dance like them.

A: We can take some dancing lessons from them later on. By the way, would you like to have a drink?

B: I’d rather have some fish sandwiches.

A: OK. I’ll fetch something tasty in a minute.

Dialogue D

A: It’s homely here, isn’t it? And it’s such a popular place!

B: It is, but I don’t really like the smell of our seafood.

A: Well, I don’t really like the taste.

B: Don’t you? Why not?

A: I think it’s terrible.

B: It cost a fortune. We ought to eat it.

Задание 2

A. Your school uniform should make you feel good about yourself and should be stylish. You can shorten the length of your skirt, keeping it above the knee. This will show your legs and nothing looks better than a short and a well-fitting skirt. Similarly, you can also shorten your sleeves, if they are too long or just fold them, it will look smart. Another style you can experiment with is by combining a well-fitting skirt with a baggy shirt (not very baggy). It looks pretty cool.

B. Accessorize with a smart tie or a scarf or a jacket on your uniform. You can wear a scarf in so many different ways; you can tie a scarf around your neck — like a tie, you can also tie it sideways on your neck. You can wear a tie and experiment with hair bands too.

C. Having a beautiful skin is the most attractive thing on a person. Healthy and fresh skin with some makeup or even without it will make you look pretty. Take care of your skin and don’t experiment with harmful products to look nice. Keep it simple by drinking lots of water, eating healthy food and maintaining good hygiene.

D. Your hair takes almost 50% of the credit in contributing to your prettiness. There is so much you can do with your hair, so many school hairstyles you can try. You can tie a high ponytail, a side ponytail or leave them open with a pretty hair-band. Keep your hair in a good condition without using harmful products on your hair. Trim them and style them by straightening them or curling them.

E. If there are no restrictions with the kind of footwear you should wear, there are so many options for you to experiment with. Try tennis shoes or ballet flats or some matching formal trendy shoes that don’t have high heels. High heels are not recommended as they are unsuitable for the activities you do in school. They can be uncomfortable for fast walking or running.

Задания 3-8

Tom: Jane, did you make all this food yourself? It looks wonderful! Such a great variety of delicious things!

Jane: Not at all, Tom. Of course, I’m pleased that you think highly of my cooking skills but I was simply responsible for the music and setting the table. And I also asked everybody to bring something. Kate brought this pizza. She made it herself. By the way, thank you for bringing the drinks.

Tom: It’s OK, I was glad to help. And who made this chocolate cake, the one behind the sandwiches? Jane: Julia brought it. She said her mother made it. It looks tasty with this icing top, doesn’t it?

Tom: Oh, yes, I can’t wait to eat a piece of it. I like sweet things especially when they look so appetizing... I saw Mark in the sitting room. Did he bring anything?

Jane: I asked him to bring biscuits or fruits. He brought bananas and oranges.

Tom: I suppose Jack brought that salad, didn’t he? If I’m not mistaken, he is always experimenting with his favorite ingredients. You know how crazy he is about shrimps and all kinds of sea delicacies. Jane: Yes, but Ann will bring another salad, meat or chicken, I’m not sure.

Tom: And what about Sally?

Jane: I asked her to bring anything she wanted, nothing special. So she brought this big box of chocolates. Mark helped her to choose it.

Tom: When are we going to start? I’m so hungry. Can I have a sandwich?

Задание 1

Dialogue А

A: Get out of the car. You have just driven through a red traffic light. What reason or excuse can you give?

B: My friend has a terrible stomachache. I have to take him to hospital as fast as possible.

B: I’m not hungry, so I’ll take a small shrimp salad.

A: I’ll take one, too.

Задание 2

A. I am really not a sporty person. I have never enjoyed playing, watching or even reading about sports. At school, physical education is my least favourite subject and I always try to invent an excuse to avoid it. Nevertheless, I am aware that exercise is very important. I have always liked walking, for example, and I sometimes go out for a bike ride with friends. For me, sport is not so important — what is important is doing some exercise and keeping fit.

B. Last winter I decided to join a gym. One of my friends also joined up and so we started going together once a week. Then we decided to try a few more classes and we now go about four times per week. Not only are these classes good for my fitness level, but I have found that often they give me a reason to get outside of the house. I always leave the classes feeling happy, worked and motivated which I think is a great feeling. So, if you’re feeling a little unhealthy, lazy, bored or a bit sad, I would definitely recommend trying a fitness class!

C. Every time before the football match I start feeling extremely nervous. So I decided to work out a strategy to fight this. That’s my advice to everybody having the same problem. Have a good breakfast, listen to your favourite music and focus on things that have gone well in training. Be positive. Once you are in the right mood it is important to focus on the warm up. I think the warm up is the perfect time to concentrate on the game ahead. Never panic. We are all individuals and have different ways to combat the nerves. Just work out which technique helps you the most.

D. I love running because, although it is much slower than cycling, it allows you to really see everything around you. I’m not a very fast runner, but I always make sure I enjoy every run I go on! And what is more, I have made so many friends through running. Sometimes I take part in running races organized for charity! It helps me with my training because it motivates me — especially in winter, when it is cold and dark, I don’t always want to go out for a run, but knowing that I am supporting a good cause always helps me.

E. I’ve been running for as long as I can remember, as both of my parents run, and they encouraged me to join them from an early age. I started by doing short jogs around the area I live in, just a ten minute run or something like that. Then I became more confident and tried to increase either the distance I was covering or the speed at which I was doing it. Now I enjoy running every morning before my studies, and it gives me the energy, necessary for the day.

Задания 3-8

Nancy: Hello, Bob. Come in.

Bob: Hi, Nancy. Your house looks quite different from what I saw last time.

Nancy: Yes, I’ve redecorated practically all the rooms. To tell the truth, I’ve tried to give them a warm and cozy feel and used richer and warmer paint colors. Do you like the hall? You know, pink is my favorite color.

Bob: As far as I remember, last time it was orange. This color seemed to be too wild and energetic for me. Your pink hall looks much better now though I prefer bluish colors. They have a nice airy feel.

Nancy: I decided to use blue for my living room. It’s the southern side and when it’s hot in summer, the room seems a bit cooler.

Bob: You have prepared for designing work, haven’t you? You know exactly what effect you’d like each room to have. Did you read magazines? Or maybe you attended designing courses?

Nancy: In fact I didn’t need to. My aunt is a designer, so she helped me a lot. I followed everything she told me.

Bob: Have you painted upstairs?

Nancy: Yes, my bedroom furniture is pink, so I used purple for the walls. I also listened to my aunt’s recommendation and hung a mirror on the wall opposite the window. Now it can reflect light into the space. By the way, the bathroom was the same orange color as the hall. This time I chose white to make it look larger.

Bob: Well, I think you’ve worked really hard. What about the kitchen?

Nancy: I’ve got a new wooden floor there, so I chose a very light brown for the walls.

Bob: It really makes it stylish.

Nancy: I’m glad you appreciated my efforts.

Dialogue А

A: The taxi has arrived, but I still can’t collect my suitcase from the baggage reclaim. Can you help me?

B: Of course. There are lots of suitcases which look very much alike. Did you mark your suitcase?

A: Sure. I wrote down my address and phone number and I tied up a blue ribbon on the handle.

B: What about that big brown suitcase behind a huge green one?

A: Let me have a look... Hurrah! It’s mine.

В: I prefer a pair made of glass.

A: They’ll be more expensive.

B: It’s OK. For my eyesight they are better. Can I try them on?

A: Of course. The mirror is behind you.

Задание 2

A. Playing a musical instrument is a great hobby to have. I started playing the piano when I was five years old and still really enjoy it now: it’s a perfect way to relax and cheers me up when I’m feeling down. When I was younger I had piano lessons every week. However, now I have too little time to practise regularly and can just play from time to time.

В. I wanted to play the piano so much that I spent all the money I got for my last birthday on a brand new electric piano. It was quite difficult getting it from the music shop to my house: I had to take a friend with me to get it into a taxi and then carry it to the door. I am very glad I bought it. Now I can play whenever I want, using headphones not to disturb my family. When I am studying or writing an essay, I usually take a break to play something energetically. It really helps me!

C. I love listening to music and try to do it as much as I can. Whether I’m riding my bike or walking somewhere I always have a CD or my iPod playing because I feel music can greatly influence my mood. I can listen to music to cheer up or relax or recall a certain time and a certain place where I last listened to that song.

D. Listening to songs in a foreign language is a great way to learn vocabulary — just find the words online and use a dictionary for anything you don’t know. Or just have songs playing while you do your homework. I always try to choose songs which are easy to understand and can be found on Youtube, but which have also brilliant music!

E. When my friend was younger, he was sure that piano lessons were ruining his day. Carrying a flute from class to class just for a half-hour lesson seemed to me absolutely pointless. But as we came nearer to the adult world, suddenly we realised that knowing how to play an instrument was pretty cool. Yes, even the flute. So, we decided to start a band at our school with two more of our classmates who played the guitar and the drum. It was a great experience because it taught us to be creative.

Diana: Oh, Dad, today we’ve had a talk about our future jobs at school. Everybody seems to know what they are going to be in the future.

Father: Do they really, Diana? It’s still a long way for you and everybody can easily change their mind. What do they say?

Diana: Well, John is only interested in sport. He knows that he is going to play football for a top team.

Father: I doubt that being fond of sport is enough for that. And what about the others?

Diana: Mary’s father is a doctor and a year ago she was sure she would follow his steps. Now she is crazy of becoming a film star. Of course, she is pretty but she can’t act at all.

Father: And Tom — does he want to be a teacher like his elder brother?

Diana: Tom’s really good at drawing and painting, but he doesn’t want to be an art teacher. He wants to be a real artist.

Father: What about your best friend Mary?

Diana: She is taking flying lessons because she wants to fly planes round the world for a big airline.

Father: That’s a surprise! Doesn’t David want to be a pilot?

Diana: No, he wants to be a psychologist.

Задание 2

A. I grew up a nice Catholic girl in a small southern town in Georgia. I wanted to be a vet, because we had lots of animals at home. I wasn’t the most popular girl, though I dated a lot and had many friends. The boys I liked best were athletes. I wasn’t a beauty, but I became a finalist in our school’s beauty contest, which was a big thrill. I also felt restless and three days after graduation I moved to New York to learn how to act and become an actress.

B. I’d never want to go back to high school. Not in a million of years! When I was sixteen my mother remarried and we lived in New Jersey. I worked in an ice-cream store and dated in an old car I bought for fifty dollars. I never planned to go to college because I never studied well and we didn’t have a lot of money.

C. I was a tall, skinny kid who wore thick glasses and had no sense of myself as a female. When I was fourteen one boy said that he would teach me to kiss and he did. I was naive, but I was always a great student. When I was fifteen and in the eleventh grade, I was going to high school half a day and a nearby college the other half.

D. I wanted to be a biker. I was dreaming about motorcycles, leather jackets, knives, violence. Maybe because that was so different from my real life. Ours was a normal, middle-class provincial family with five kids. And we were all musical. I could play the guitar, piano, banjo and drums. To earn some pocket money, I played the trumpet in a dance band at weddings and bars. At school I usually performed, too, but I didn’t like studying, just read a lot.

E. I’m quite uncertain about my school years. We moved from town to town together with my father. Before I was fifteen, I’d never attended the same school for more than six month. When you change schools a lot you don’t have a clear idea, who you are or what you like. At one school I was popular, at another I wasn’t. My last school was in Los Angeles, after my mother divorced my father.

Задания 3-8

Dan: Hi, John. Have you got a minute? Here are the photos of my safari trip to Africa last month.

John: Dan, let me have a look. Oh, a family of elephants! How did you manage to get so close to them? It may simply be too dangerous to be walking around elephants, lions, tigers, and bears or other possibly deadly animals. It can also be dangerous to the animals to interact with humans in a close way. I prefer to keep a safe distance.

Dan: Yes, I see your point. I know that all these animals and especially elephants can be dangerous, for example in case they get frightened. So, some safari trips are done mostly by motor transport. Watching animals from the security of a car allows people to come more closely to the animals. It’s less risky to both animals and humans. I didn’t use any cars but I wasn’t alone and the guide said it was OK. In fact I wasn’t too close. I just have a great camera.

John: Is a good camera really all you need? I have a very expensive camera, but my photos aren’t nearly as good as yours. I think you should consider taking photos professionally.

Dan: It’s really my dream to make a living taking photos for wildlife magazines. Surprisingly my parents are very encouraging. They want me to do it. Besides, travelling is just for me. I want to see the world and get some life experience.

John: And what about underwater photos? Last summer I tried to take a few photos of tropical fish while scuba diving. But I need to take a course to learn how to do it really well.

Dan: I tried underwater photography once, and the results were disappointing. You know what? I’ll check what kind of photo courses they have at the college. I’ll call you if there is anything on underwater photography.

John: Thanks a lot. You’re very helpful.

Dan: Well, such a course could be very useful for me as well. You can’t even imagine how many things in underwater technique are different from what I’ve already learnt about photography. So, it would be great if we could attend the course together.

John: That would be really fine!
