Speaker 1: When my friends asked me to take part in a marathon to raise money for a children’s charity, I was completely unfit. I had just four months to get into shape, but I was determined to do it! The training was hard at first but I didn’t give up. Gradually, I got stronger and slowly built up my speed. The big day finally came and I completed the whole 26 miles, with the crowd cheering excitedly. And later on, when we donated the money for the needy kids, I felt so happy to be doing something worthwhile.

Speaker 2: I was worried that I was becoming a TV addict. I spent hours every evening watching all kinds of rubbish. Even at mealtimes, I had a programme playing in the background. I was really hooked. Then I decided to challenge myself. Could I go a whole week without turning the television on? It seemed impossible, but I tried to keep myself busy; I went for long walks, read books and even tidied all the kitchen cupboards! At the end of the week I realised I didn’t actually miss it at all!

Speaker 3: When I injured my legs in a car accident, the doctor said I wouldn’t walk again, but I refused to listen to him. I’m a film director and I had a great idea for a new film. Nothing was going to stop me! After six months of physiotherapy, I knew I wasn’t working my legs hard enough. I made a habit of taking a few slow painful steps every day with the help of a stick. Each day I pushed myself a little further. A year later, to my doctor’s amazement, I’m walking around my film set!

Speaker 4: I love high-adrenalin activities, so I try any extreme sport that comes my way – bungee jumping, white water rafting, you name it. Then someone suggested skydiving! Jumping out of a plane at 15.000 feet sounded like the ultimate thrill. The day arrived and the instructor and I were getting ready to jump. Suddenly my legs turned to jelly, my heart started pounding and my mouth went dry. With the help of my instructor, though, I overcame the panic attack. Next thing, I was flying through the air at a hundred miles an hour!

Speaker 5: Everyone knows me at the driving test centre. That’s because I have taken my driving test five times! Each time I got so nervous I kept making silly mistakes, failure is hard to accept, but I was such a bag of nerves I was ready to quit. Then I saw an advert for relaxation classes. They were a bit expensive, but I decided to enroll. I learnt breathing exercises and how to think more positively. Feeling more relaxed and confident, I applied to take my test for the fifth time. And guess what? I passed?

Speaker 1: I knew I had to do something to break my unhealthy eating habits! My friends often asked me to go with them to eat hamburgers and usually we had a fizzy drink, like a Coke. I started putting on weight and decided to act! Now I eat the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. It has really made a difference. I look and feel much better and I enjoy life more; I’m slimmer because I’m eating less calories and healthier because the five-a-day diet helps protect you from heart disease and other illnesses.

Speaker 2: You might think that going for an afternoon nap is a lazy thing to do. In fact experts say it usually is good for you. A short sleep during the day of, say, 30 minutes refreshes and relaxes you. Your stress disappears and you get back to work with twice the energy! I make sure I don’t sleep for too long in the afternoon, though. More than 45 minutes makes me feel exhausted when I wake up. The key is to keep it short.

Speaker 3: Following a strict diet to keep in shape is not for me. Instead, I prefer to make exercise part of my daily routine. But you won’t catch me going to the gym! Far too boring. Six months ago I bought an exercise bike and set it up in my living room. Now I can entertain myself tuning in to my favourite TV channel while I’m cycling. That’s much more fun than running on a treadmill in the gym! Having a shower afterwards in your own bathroom is much nicer, too!

Speaker 4: Did you know that the human body is around 60% water? That means we need to consume two to three litres of it a day. It keeps your skin looking good and it flushes all the toxins out of the body that could otherwise cause headaches. What’s more, it can protect us from getting arthritis in the joints, which can be very painful. A glass of water half an hour before a meal means you don’t overeat and it helps your system work more effectively to absorb nutrients.

Speaker 5: Why do they say a dog is a man’s best friend? There’s no limit to the reasons. Dogs put you in a good mood and reduce your stress levels. They’re even better than human friends because they don’t criticise you or judge you. They help you make social contact, because taking a dog out into the park often means other people start chatting with you about him. I take my dog out regularly for half an hour every day. That way. I’m always sure of a brisk healthy walk.

С) The speaker says we should avoid the cost of overweight luggage.

Speaker 1: I never seem to get it right when I pack my suitcase. I go for a seaside holiday with lots of light summer clothes, and then it’s freezing. Or else I’m off to the mountains to catch some snow, only to find the sun is blazing and I don’t need thick jumpers! It’s so frustrating when that kind of thing happens. Indeed, deciding what to pack can be quite a nightmare. In future, I’ll be more organised and bring one of everything. I don’t care how much it weighs…

Speaker 2: Whenever I go on holiday. I always make a checklist so I don’t forget anything. I don’t just mean packing, though that needs quite а bit of thought. It’s all those little jobs you have to remember before you leave, like locking windows or cancelling newspaper deliveries. A few minutes extra trouble before you set off can put your mind at rest. Then you can sit back and enjoy your holiday with no worries. After all, you don’t want to encourage thieves, do you?

Speaker 3: With air travel nowadays, you have to remember the things you can and can’t take in your hand baggage. Rules have become much stricter because of security issues. Last summer I made a silly mistake. I suppose I just wasn’t thinking. I packed an expensive pair of nail scissors in my hand luggage at the last minute, only to have them taken from me going through security, I was so annoyed! I should have put them in my suitcase, you see…

Speaker 4: You know how it is… You pack one nice outfit in your case so that you have the right clothes for going somewhere special. Women have more trouble than men, I think, because they have to find all the matching accessories – a bag, shoes, jewellery and so on – and before you know it your case is full. All that trouble for an outfit you only wear once or maybe twice. Now I make a point of only packing the basics.

Speaker 5: It always happens… To me, anyway. You take a book with you to read and then you never get round to it. I find you’re either too busy seeing the sights or going out with friends. And even when you do get a few spare moments, there always seems to be something more interesting to do; just sitting on your hotel balcony and enjoying the view, for instance. So now I never bother with books. They’re just an extra weight in your suitcase.

A) The speaker feels that mobile phones are not worth their high cost.
В) The speaker believes that mobile phones stop children from learning to interact socially.
С) The speaker talks about the possible effect of mobile phones on health.
D) The speaker feels that mobile phones distract children from their studies.
E) The speaker believes that mobile phones are a convenient means of communication.
F) The speaker feels that children must learn that they have to work for what they want to buy

1 – С

5 – D

Speaker 1: The latest thinking seems to be that mobile phones are harmless to children. There is a report in the newspapers today that states that mobiles don’t damage brain cells. Even those earlier studies that suggested there might be a problem said that children would have to use their mobiles for several hours a day in order to be at risk. Mind you, it’s probably still a good idea to limit the number of calls you make.

Speaker 2: I have bought my children cheap mobile phones because I feel that it is a practical way for me to keep in touch with them. Sometimes they’re late home from school, or they want to stay a bit longer somewhere. I can contact them at any time, which is a great relief. Also, if the kids are in trouble, they can call for help. I know people say that children with mobiles are easy targets for robbers but I don’t think that’s true. From what I’ve heard robbers are only interested in expensive phones.

Speaker 3: My son has been asking me repeatedly to buy him the latest mobile with all the newest gadgets. He tells me that his friends have the current favourite but I honestly think that paying that kind of price would just be spoiling him. I have told him that he will have to earn the money by doing some chores around the house. I think it is important to teach him about the value of money at an early age.

Speaker 4: I am worried that my son lives in a private world with his mobile phone and I find it extremely hard to control his mobile phone use. He’s an expert at texting and spends his afternoons sending and receiving hundreds of messages. He also spends hours alone in his bedroom talking on the phone or playing games. I’m worried that it’s making him antisocial. He’ll soon begin to forget what good manners are.

Speaker 5: I refuse to buy my child a mobile phone. I believe that phones draw her attention away from her lessons. There are enough distractions as it is – the TV. the Internet and so on – without having another one. Mobile phones are a particular nuisance in schools, too. I have heard my daughter say that children just put them on silent mode and secretly text or play games at the back of the classroom.

1 – B

4 – F
5 – A

Speaker 1: I can’t understand why so much money has to be spent on entertainment these days. It’s become big business. But I don’t believe people enjoy themselves any more now than their ancestors did. Instead of paying a huge bill at a fancy restaurant or something like that, people in the old days were content with less. They were quite happy to sit around the fire telling stories, playing music or having a game of cards. I think they had just as much fun as people today, and with leas expense.

Speaker 2: I’ll never forget when my parents took me on my first visit to a funfair. I was amazed at the number of rides like the rollercoaster and the big wheel. Up there you can see the whole city spread out about 100 metres below. You think you’re going to fall out and it’s really scary! I still love going. When people tell me they can’t understand why I enjoy frightening myself to death, I just laugh. After all, it’s all about the thrill of facing your fears!

Speaker 3: Because of the educational value of entertainment, it’s my view that the theatre and concerts should have cheaper tickets. That way everyone would be able to afford to go and find out about local and foreign culture in an enjoyable way -through the arts. Unfortunately, the price of seats at these events is so high these days you have to think twice about splashing out on a ticket, which I think is really unfair. That’s why I missed seeing my favourite band last month…

Speaker 4: “Don’t play video games’ They’re too violent They’ll harm your eyes. You’d be better off playing a sport and getting some exercise. What about your homework? It’s antisocial to spend so many hours on your own.” – That’s all you seem to hear about computer games, from parents, anyway. But in fact they can actually help to develop reading, spelling and coordination skills. And believe it or not, they’ve been used to distract children from painful medical treatments and even as a form of physiotherapy if you’ve injured your arm!

Speaker 5: Entertainment is not really just down to going out and spending money, for me, at least. It can be simply anything that helps you get away from your stressful daily routine. There’s nothing quite like getting out in the garden and tending your plants or having a few good friends around and cooking a nice meal for them. I must admit, my personal favourite is lying in bed on a Sunday morning with an interesting book end not being in a rush to get up!

Speaker 1: A lot of people complain about the traffic where I live, but I can’t say I mind it, really, and I like the fact that there is always something to do after work. I live in a flat in the centre and although it is very small and the neighbours sometimes make a lot of noise, it’s conveniently close to the library where I work and the shops, so it’s not too bad. I only wish things were more affordable.

Speaker 2: I suppose after a difficult day at work, all I want to do is relax and just take it easy. I might get into a nice warm bath and listen to music through my headphones or go for a long evening walk. In winter I often just curl up in an armchair in front of the fire with a good book. At the weekends I enjoy gardening. I wouldn’t want a large garden, though. I’m quite happy just pottering around on my balcony looking after the plants there. Some people are always on the go, but that’s just not for me.

Speaker 3: I hardly ever get to see my friends as most of them live on the other side of town, it’s a difficult area to get to by public transport and I don’t drive. That means I’m lucky if I see them once every six months or so. I don’t have a problem with my surroundings – there are some very pretty parks around here. My neighbours are all right, too, but I feel rather isolated here. I miss going out and having everything I need nearby. I think it was a mistake to come here and I am going to look for a new place soon.

Speaker 4: There are just never enough hours in the day. From the minute I wake up in the morning, it’s non-stop with work all day and then my evening classes to get a Master’s degree. There’s a lot of reading, as you can imagine, so I don’t really have time to go out much, or pay attention to what’s going on in the area. But I don’t mind. I prefer to make a point of going to bed early so I have plenty of energy to keep up with everything I have to do each day.

Speaker 5: I’m always out with my friends. We like going to the cinema or going shopping. You find such lovely shopping centres about nowadays that you always come home loaded with goodies. I look forward to going out at the weekends when I can stay out late. My friends and I often go to parties or concerts. In the summer we are always at the beach and often stay there late just talking for hours. I can’t stand staying home, it’s much more fun to be out with people you know.

Speaker 1: I love boats and when I went on holiday to China I saw the most amazing festival. It was the Duanwu Festival, otherwise known as the Double Fifth because it is traditionally held on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar. It is most well known, though, by the name of the Dragon Boat Festival. The dragon boats race each other and are decorated like dragons with colourful heads and tails. The tradition of dragon boat racing started about 2.000 years ago to honour Qu Yuan, who was a loyal supporter of China. Of course, nowadays, the sport is internationally recognised.

Speaker 2: I’m from India and each year in early March we celebrate Holi. On the first evening of the festival we light fires to keep away evil spirits. Everybody loves the second day because we throw coloured powder and water over everyone, this represents energy, joy and life. Everyone is covered with vivid orange, yellow, red, blue, green and purple. It’s best if you wear white clothes because the colours look great, you know, like a rainbow! It may sound messy but it’s a great way of bringing people together!

Speaker 3: I’m always anxious about being invited to one of these celebrations because I never know what to wear. It’s not only the happy couple who are under the spotlight. It’s everybody. Honestly, I’d be happy in casual clothes but it’s traditional to dress up. I’ve spent many evenings phoning my friends and discussing what colour to wear. White is forbidden, of course. That’s only for the bride. Most countries seem to have that rule, don’t they? Anyway, I’ll have to buy something soon, the ceremony is in two weeks!

Speaker 4: My friend lives in a large city on the coast. When I visited her last summer, they were holding a festival along the waterfront. The weather was glorious so we headed off to the port to see what was going on. There was a replica of a 15th century ship as well as the Tall Ships’ Race. There were other exciting things such as free sailing lessons and beach theatre, where they perform plays from all over the world. It lasted four days and it was wonderful.

Speaker 5: It’s great meeting friends and having a good time. One of my friends got married recently. After a month abroad on honeymoon, she and her husband are now back and settled into their new house. They have decided they want to arrange a small get-together for a few close friends to celebrate their first home. I don’t want to turn up empty-handed. I’ll probably bake a cake and buy some flowers to wish them good luck. Actually, I’m really looking forward to seeing my friends again and having a good time laughing and dancing.

Speaker 1: It was absolutely dreadful. Everyone was staring at me. I turned bright red and wished I were a thousand miles away. I could never have imagined walking out on stage to receive my degree in front of all those people only to fall flat on my face. People tried not to laugh, but I guess I must have looked pretty amusing. My mum says I’m making a fuss about nothing. She thinks I should be proud to have been awarded a first class grade. But she didn’t have to hear all the jokes about it afterwards from the other students.

Speaker 2: My heart was beating like mad. It was so dark that I couldn’t see a thing. I managed to find matches and light a candle. I knew I was alone in the house, so what were those noises coming from upstairs? Now when I think back on it I’m so ashamed. It was silly to have been so terrified. I crept slowly up the stairs holding a frying pan and as my brother came around the corner I almost hit him with it. Fortunately, I recognized who it was just in time, or he could have had a very nasty bump on his head. Looking back, I can see the funny side of it but at the time I was scared to death.

Speaker 3: The whole thing was hilarious. I told Jane I would be waiting at the park bench by the duck pond wearing а blue hat. I arrived late and saw her walking towards the bench, then suddenly she hugged a stranger wearing a blue hat. The stranger stood up, staring at Jane in shock. Then Jane spotted me walking towards her and we both laughed! After all, it was a simple mistake, so nothing to be ashamed about.

Speaker 4: Call it luck or chance, it was an amazing coincidence. My friend Paul had been looking for a job for some time. I hadn’t seen him for at least a month. Then one morning at work I looked up from my desk and there he was right in front of me with a big smile on his face. I was so astonished. I didn’t know what to say. He had not only got a job at the same company as me but I was thrilled to hear we would be working together, too. It’s strange how things turn out sometimes.

Speaker 5: I’ll never forget the feeling of stage fright. This was a big step for me. I mean the thought of talking to a crowd that large made my stomach chum. As I was waiting, I began to sweat and my legs felt weak. Thoughts like “What am I doing here?” or “I can’t do this” were racing through my head. Just when I was ready to turn around and run off the stage, they announced my name. I smiled anxiously and walked over to the microphone. Surprisingly enough, it went okay, but I definitely don’t want to go through that again!
