The term "British English", however, has a widermeaning, and is usually reserved to describe the features common toEnglish English, Welsh English, Hiberno-English, and Scottish English. Alot of people are always interested in the different accents anddialects that exist in Britain. That's why The English DialectDictionary that has been completed by Joseph Wright, is now extremelyvaluable. But the diversity of accents within the nation is still beingstudied by linguists. Dialect research papers are often sold forhundreds of pounds. People tend to be very proud of their local accentor dialect. 34Прочитай определения и соотнеси их со словами. 1.

We can see a lot of advertisement that offer quick courses offoreign languages after finishing of which you would speak fluently anylanguage you wish. If it is true, why then so humble number of peoplecan really speak foreign languages? From my point of view the onlymethod of studying foreign language is not connected with modern methodssuch as internet communication or immersion courses. It correlates withthe traditional way of learning foreign languages. I mean with ateacher. If you have a good teacher and a good textbook, the only thingyou need then is your desire to learn the language that is yourmotivation. Of course there may be found several arguments against it.First of all it is the same number of people who have the real abilityto speak foreign languages that I have already mentioned. We all startstudying English at school but can hardly speak English after finishing.The point is that at school there is not much motivation among pupils,but when adults start studying English they make much progress as theyunderstand clearly the reason why they should study it. So I believethat the best way of studying English or the other foreign language is atraditional one; But the key point in this methodology is played by thestudents' motivation. You should really want to learn a foreignlanguage because only then you could do it.

Who lives in Britain? Britainis a country where people of different nationalities have beenhistorically mixed. Several thousands years ago people travelled frommany different parts of the world to live in Europe and Great Britain.In fact, every person in Britain has origins from another country. Theofficial count in 2001 showed that Britain's population consisted of thefollowing different races and nationalities. Here are some of thefigures. Thousands of years ago Britain was invaded by differentcountries, races and nationalities including the Romans, the Saxons, theNormans, the Vikings. And so today many people actually descend fromthem. Even then, invaders brought slaves. In the 3rd century AD Romeused black soldiers to guard Hadrian's wall. In the 20^ century Britainsuffered much during the Second World War and people from other parts ofthe world were invited to help rebuild the country. Many of them werefrom different countries belonging to the British Empire. The first shipcame from West Indies in 1948. It was called the Empire Windrush and ithad hundreds of people on board. Later people continued to arrive andstay in Britain. As a result of these events, Britain has become acountry where different nationalities, cultures and religions are mixed.This mixture has influenced all spheres of life, including thecountry's literature, music, art, fashion and everyday habits androutines. People who were born in other countries have brought theirtraditions, rituals and food with them. For example, Indian and Chinesetakeaways are as popular as traditional British fish and chips. Aninternational influence is also clearly seen in popular music styles.For example, rap and hip hop, types of music extremely popular amongteenagers, originally came from Africa. Even in schools differentorigins have to be taken into consideration, particularly when a schooluniform is required.

While,in fact, there are lots of rights listed there. Some of them arevitally important. I personally think that the most important right,apart from the right to live of course, is the right to get education.Our world sets strict requirements for people and the most crucial oneis obtaining good knowledge. I believe that a child should have theopportunity to study as it will help in the future. Unfortunately, inour country this right does not work everywhere, as there are lots ofchildren who do not attend school. To summarize it all, I want tohighlight the idea that different people would nominate different rightsfor Right No 1. That's why every right should be observed and none ofthem should be neglected.

She was the first womanwho was to rule a Muslim state — she chaired the Pakistan Peoples Partyand occupied the post of Prime Minister twice in 1988-1990 and in1993-1996. В; Sounds impressive. Go on. A: Her political career wasn'tsmooth. She had lots of opponents and experienced both success* andfailure. Politics is a very controversial thing — you never know what'strue and what's not. Once Benazir was accused of corruption but then theallegations were withdrawn. I think it was her opponents' trick. B: Andis she still in politics? A: Unfortunately, no. She was the leadingoppo-sition candidate for the general elections in 2008 and, I think,had a good chance to become President of Pakistan. But Benazir Bhuttowas murdered two weeks before the Pakistani general elections. B: Do youmean that it wasn't an accident? A: Oh no! It was an assassination, amurder for political purposes. Several shots were fired at her car. Oneof them caused her death. В: I feel that I want to find out more aboutthat outstanding woman.

What is happeningto our weather? Although most of us say we love the hot weather, Iwonder if we would feel the same if every day was the same withpredictable sunshine and heat. Never having lived in a hot country formore than a few weeks I am not sure what my opinion would be. Maybe Iwould miss the rain? There is something about freshness that is in theair after a summer rainfall. When I was younger I was scared of athunder and my mum used to tell me it was only God moving his furniturearound! To pass the time we counted between lightning flashes andthunder, the number we got to was supposed to be the number of milesaway we were from the storm. It is shame that today we don't have thoseheavy snowfalls, these should be part of everyone's childhood! Sledgingdown the nearest slope until your fingers feel as though they will dropoff was all part of fun! These days with the first flurries of snow weare given weather warnings and told not to go out unless our journey is"essential". There is an outcry if schools are closed, but is thejourney to school "essential" in such weather conditions? A debatablepoint! I remember having to struggle through deep snow to get to school,but as it was only a short distance from home and the teachers alllived locally, that was no problem. Nowadays it is somewhat different.Our seasons seem to have disappeared — or have they merged into eachother? 119Заполни пропуски предлогами. Проверь ответы по тексту. Переведивыражения.

There are about 25,000 IrishTravellers in Ireland and 1,300 in Northern Ireland. They are a littleunderstood nomadic community, who have many difficulties to overcome ifthey are to survive as a culture and gain acceptance into Irish society.Among the challenges facing them are poverty and racism. The IrishTravellers are a distinct ethnic group which has existed for centuries.Often they are mistakenly considered part of the nomadic Romani, anethnic group which originated in the region of India and is nowwidespread throughout Europe. But the Irish Travellers are indigenous toIreland, so the two cultures are not related. While both are nomadic,the Irish Travellers are Roman Catholic and speak a language that istheirs alone. They have their own culture, customs, traditions, andlanguage. They are noted for their musical and storytelling abilities.In times past, they travelled by horse-drawn wagon in caravans, makingcamp along the way. Tinsmithing, horse trading and peddling were themajor sources of income in those days. Tinsmiths were so prevalent amongIrish Travellers that the terms Tinker and Irish Traveller were usedinterchangeably. Today, Tinker is one of many names for IrishTravellers. Horses and wagons have given way to mobile homes pulled bymotor vehicles. They continue their life on the road, but there arefewer places to stop and fewer places where they are welcome. Today,Irish Travellers mainly work in recycling. Changing needs of society andprogress have eliminated the jobs that could support a culture onwheels. Irish Travellers are poor, undereducated, and on the receivingend of discrimination. Their life expectancy is lower than average whiletheir infant mortality rate is higher than average. As is the case withthe Romani, the Irish Travellers are seen by many as a group ofimmoral, ignorant criminals and con artists. People distrust theirnomadic culture and their language, Shelta. Many think it's a secretlanguage specifically developed as a tool to help the Irish Travellerstrick innocent people. But this is not true. It is an old language,which has evolved with time and circumstances. Once heavily infused withIrish Gaelic, it is now infused with English. 1. Poverty and racism arethe two main problems of Irish Travellers. 2. The Irish Travellers aremistakenly taken for the nomadic Romani, another ethnic group widelyspread in Europe. 3. Although both groups are nomadic, their culturesare not related. 4. In the past the Irish Travellers went around byhorse-drawn wagon in caravans. 5. They were called Tinkers, which is nowa name for them. 6. Irish Travellers have mobile homes pulled motorvehicles now. 7. Today, the Irish Travellers mainly work in recycling.8. They have low... and their infant mortality rate is lifeexpectancy/higher than average. 9. People distrust their culture andtheir lan-guage. 10.

Most linguists believe that writing was inventedin China during the latter half of the 2nd millennium ВС. Chinese iswritten with characters. Each character represents a syllable of spokenChinese and also has a meaning. The characters were originally picturesof people, animals or other things but over the centuries they havebecome increasingly stylized and no longer look like the things theyrepresent. The Chinese writing system is limited. The largest Chinesedictionaries include about 56,000 characters, but most of them arearchaic, obscure or rare variant forms. Knowledge of about 3,000characters enables you to read about 99% of the characters in Chinesenewspapers and magazines. To read Chinese literature, technical writingsor Classical Chinese, though, you need to be familiar with about 6,000characters. There are currently two systems for Chinese characters. Thetraditional system, still used in Hong Kong and Taiwan, comes fromstandardized character forms dating back to the late Han Dynasty. TheSimplified Chinese Character System, was developed in 1954 to promotemass literacy, simplifying most complex traditional characters to fewerstrokes. 4Прочитай текст и выбери наилучший вариант ответа, чтобы заполнить пропуски 1.

There are lots of other things that are really exciting andbeneficial for people of our age, such as sports, friends, music andcertainly education. I don't watch political programmes on TV as I don'tlike them anyway. Politicians use a very difficult language, which Idon't always understand. I certainly watch news from time to time, but Idon't enjoy it very much. It's all about military conflicts, antiglo-balists' protests and other depressing things. I'm convinced that weshouldn't ignore politics. If young people are indifferent to it, theycan't influence it. Someone else is shaping their future and they willhave to accept the results, whatever they are. I'm not saying that weshould take part in all kinds of movements. Politics is a verycontroversial thing and it's often very difficult to say who is rightand who is wrong. I never support people who protest aggressively, nomatter how good their intentions are. I think we should analyzeinformation and think for ourselves.

When his schoolmates werepartying or camping or just watching TV, he was reading about differentpolitical systems and movements. It was a weird hobby for a teenager,but he obviously enjoyed it. When I entered his room for the very firsttime, my attention was attracted to a little bookcase in the corner. Thecollection of books there was quite unusual — biographies of famouspoliticians, political reviews, textbooks on politics and internationalrelations and no feature books at all! Mike proudly said that the uniquecollection was gathered in just two years. He also showed me severalfiles with articles and printed internet materials that related todifferent political parties and political events. Now Mike works as apolitical analyst. He can easily forecast which party will win theelections, whether the unemployment rate will rise or fall, and whetherour economy will grow or whether we'll have to survive through arecession period. His articles are often published in serious newspapersand now it's me who cuts out his articles to make a collection. 1. wasreading; 2. enjoyed; 3. was attracted; 4. was gathered; 5. showed; 6.are often published; 7. cuts out. Часть IV. ПисьмоПрокомментирую следующее высказывание: В некоторых странах существуетполиция по охране животных, которая защищает права животных, а такжезащищает их самих от жестокости и от участи быть брошенными. Сторонникизащиты окружающей среды считают, что полиция по охране домашних животныхдолжна быть учреждена во всех странах. Protection of all social spheresis a feature of highly civilized countries. The fact that in aparticular country there is Animal Police says that in this country thegovernment supports its citizens and guarantees their rights.Unfortunately, in many countries human rights are often neglected. Thereare a lot of problems considering poverty, children's abuse, socialdiscrimination. In such situation government does not have a chance toprotect the other spheres of people's lives such as animals orenvironment. Certainly, we all should do our best to help each other.Moreover the tolerant and caring attitude towards animals may help usbring tolerant attitudes towards each other. Animals need our help.Looking after home pets may teach us a decent treatment towards ourneighbours or colleagues or trees, air and water, in other wordsenvironment. In conclusion, I would like to tell that the innovation inthe field of Animal Police is one more sign of civilized society. Itreveals the fact that such a society is problem-free. And it may serveas an example for the others to strive for.

The bar chart shows how the number of foreignstudents has been changing in our university over the last tenyears. We can see that ten years ago, in 2000 we had 30 foreignstudents, which made a very little per cent of the total number ofstudents who studied at the university. Then the number of foreigners began rising gradually and four years later, in 2004, it reached the peak of 55. Then, as we can see, the situation deteriorated and the number decreased dramatically. It fell to the minimum of 22 students five years ago and stayed at that low level, without any significant change, till last year. Last year the situation improved very rapidly and we welcomed 80 foreign students, the number is growingnow — we have already received 90 applications which have been approvedby the examination board. We hope that the year of 2010 will break therecord. Thus we can see that the number of foreign students has increased significantly for the last ten years and there is a tendency for its further growth.

The chart shows the number of studentstaking part in exchange programmes. It shows that the number of thesestudents has increased between 2004 and 2010. As you can see the numberof the students taking part in exchange programmes is just about twentywhen in 2010 it is sixty. We can judge that the growth is about 65%. Butwe cannot say that this increase was stable. As you can see in 2008there was a falling compared to 2007 and 2006. Moreover it should bementioned that in those years and in 2005 the number of exchangeprogramme students did not change at all. It was 40. In conclusion it isimportant to remark that the general tendency is optimistic. In spiteof all difficulties in recent days the number of students who take partin exchange programmes has increased sufficiently. Разминка 3АИспользуй глаголы в нужной форме. This is my first year at universityand I have not got used to a new style of life yet. I know that it'sgoing to be easier in several months when I will learn how to deal withtasks and activities which format is unfamiliar to me and how to planthe day to ensure that everything is written and submitted on time. Theright strategy is very important. I wish someone could help me to choosethe best one. In my turn I could share my personal experience withthose who are still at school. I have been learning at school for 11years, which gives me a reason to consider myself an expert on mostschool matters. And as an expert, I think that it's very important towork out your own strategy on how to deal with school assignments.Everyone wants to spend as little time as possible on homework and yetto get the maximum result. Unfortunately, not everyone manages to. When Iwas not/get used at junior school, I started my homework with thesubjects I liked most of all. Naturally, they were the easiest and mostenjoyable subjects like drawing and reading. More challenging maths andgrammar were put off till later. When Mum came from work, she found thatthe most important, in her opinion, tasks had not been done yet and weused to spend evenings over my notebooks. She kept telling me that thepriorities had to be changed to her words but I ignored. Unfortunately,my strategy did not change at senior school. Not long before the exams Irealized that the difficult subjects like physics and geometry had beenneglected by me for years. Desperate measures needed to improve thesituation and to avoid the exam fail. Fortunately, I passed the exam,but it taught me a lesson for the rest of my life.

Both economists and politicians claim thatglo-balization cannot be stopped — people have to accept it and adapt tothe new environment. Anti- globalists, in my eyes, just have lost touchwith reality, whatever they do — they cannot stop the logicaldevelopment of our society. Economic development requires boarder freezone, as companies cannot perform their best in the cramped conditionsof local markets. National economies are integrating into theinternational economy and the process is accelerating rapidly. 2. E. Theworld may turn boring. One may think that the process of globalizationwas caused and launched mainly by economic forces, which is not quitecorrect. It is caused by a combination of economic, social, cultural,political and technological reasons. Communication technologies creatednew unprecedented business opportunities, which boosted economicprocesses. In fact, telecommunicating and teleconferencing enablebusiness people to trade across the continents. Multimillion deals canbe negotiated and signed using electronic means, money can betransferred in seconds, and goods can be delivered in hours from onecontinent to another. 3. F. Cultural and informational exchange. Thecultural life of people has changed too. Due to global TV broadcast andthe internet they can exchange information quickly and easily. Nowadays,people living in Europe are well informed about the cultural traditionsand mentality of people who inhabit South America or Australia and viceversa. And if they want to learn something new, they can easily findthe information. Some national cultural objects had turned into global.No one can say now that the Beatles is just an English group — it is aglobal phenomenon, which belongs to the whole world. 4. B. The naturalprocess of evolution. Another example of integration of nationalcultures is the spread of culinary traditions. Italian dishes may becooked and served in America, there are lots of Indian and Greekrestaurants in Paris, and no one in Moscow considers hot and spicyChinese food as something exotic. We have an opportunity to tastevarious dishes regardless of the country where we live. Due toglobalization people have a much wider choice than they used to have,and they find it very beneficial. 5. G. All in the same boat. However,there are two sides to every medal, and it refers to globalization too.In spite of the obvious advantages, its negative consequences shouldn'tbe neglected either. Getting global, unfortunately, means losing yournational identity. Global music, fashion, mass media make us more andmore alike. The world is getting less diverse and therefore lessinteresting. 6. A. Factors responsible for globalization. Furthermore,the global world gets more vulnerable as crises and catastrophes becomeglobal too. That is they can affect anyone in any country. Havingstarted in one country the financial and economic crisis expands viamultinational banks and corporations all over the world causingbankruptcy and unemployment across the globe. The negative impact on theenvironment is not local anymore either — it affects everyone living onthe planet. Часть III Грамматика и ЛексикаЗаполните пропуски верными словами.

It is sonice to hear from you and learn that everything is ok. I am also veryglad for Timothy. I am pleased that he has chosen Russian as a secondlanguage. Well, it is a shame that there are not too many Russianspeaking people in your country. But the idea to spend a year in Russiais great. It will certainly help Timothy to improve his language skills.In fact, there are no many differences between Russian and Englishsystem of schooling. The one, may be, is in the fact that the Russiansystem is more theoretical and requires students to obtain a wide rangeof knowledge. We normally spend two- three hours a day for our homeworkand of course we need to use computer and internet as there are a lot ofprojects to be done. As for mathematics, we normally write one paper amonth and it is forbidden to use any reference materials during thetests. But the tasks are not very difficult as they are based on thematerial that has been covered during quite short period of time. Andwhat about you? Is it possible in your country to use reference materialduring tests? And what is the range of languages that you can study atschool? I am asking that because in Russia the situation is different:there are few languages that we may study at school. I look forward tohearing from you soon. Best wishes, XXX

As for me, I do not differ from allthese people. I am nervous before an important exam, but I try to calmmyself down. To feel confident is an essential point in being examined.You should be confident about your knowledge only then the examiner willfeel the same about you. By the way, it is much easier to take the examwhen you are actually taking it. You usually feel very frightenedbefore your turn to answer but as soon you start speaking you feel muchbetter. The secret is just to overcome this dead point. 3Распредели слова no трем колонкам.

5. Some universities may not be interested in using this site yet. Andy:There are some university professors and lecturers today who areinterested in Second Life but I don't think they all are planning topartake in it. Not yet, at least.

Since the development of the postal servicein the 19th century, commercial correspondence colleges provideddistance education to students across the country. Computers and theinternet made not only distance learning easier, but also many otherday-to-day tasks. One of the oldest distance education universities isthe University of South Africa, which has been offering correspondenceeducation courses since 1946. The largest distance education universityin the United Kingdom is the Open University founded in 1969. There arenow many similar institutions around the world, often with the name"Open University" in English or in the local language. Distanceeducation programs are sometimes called correspondence courses, an olderterm that originated in nineteenth-century vocational educationprograms that were conducting through the post. This term was replacedby distance education, and has expanded to encompass more sophisticatedtechnologies and delivery methods.

Onceyou have all the information you need, list out all the pros and cons ofthat particular job. Look at the various alternatives. Check to see ifthe job gives you what you want from a career.

Рабочая тетрадь 2 Разминка 11 А. Прочитай, что люди говорят о своих профессиях. Просмотри список профессий ниже и подумай, кто мог мы сказать следующее.
1. A baker: What do I like about my job? I think it's the most importantjob in the world though someone may say it's an overstatement. Well, mydays always start early, at about 4 or 5 am. I work early hours becausebread, buns, pastries of all kinds need to be ready by the time peoplehave their breakfast. And I don't mind early starts at all. It's greatwaking up before the sunrise to a delicious smell of freshly baked breadwhich is a great start of a day, isn't it?
2. An electronics technician: I work shifts and sometimes I feel tiredwhen I have to work at nights. But we need to be available to ourclients round the clock as they may have problems with their computersany hour. When they experience problems, they call us for help andadvice. The most difficult thing to me is to get them to explain whatthe problem is. Instead of a detailed explanation they may just scream:"It doesn't work! It bleaks, makes strange noises and refuses to work!"At first I used lots of computer jargon when I spoke to the customers,but then I realized that they didn't understand me at all and switchedfrom professional vocabulary to simple language. Now evennon-experienced computer users understand m instructions and cope withmost minor technical problems.
3. A fashion designer: When I was at school, I enjoyed arts and crafts. Iliked making things by myself. Once I made a dress from lots of littlepieces of cloth. I wore it for a party, just for fun, but my friendssaid that it was a gorgeous dress. I was very surprised but it was veryinspirational. I made some more dresses, blouses and accessories andthey were a success too. Not only my friends, but also my parents saidthat I was creative and should pursue that hobby! Later the hobby becamea job, and I find it very satisfying.
4. A police officer: When I was considering my career, I wanted my jobto be exciting and adventurous, probably dangerous, to add thrills andchills into my very ordinary life. Now I've got it all. Hut a real jobis different from the way it's usually depicted in books and films. Iwas surprised to find out that it implies lots of routine paper work,which I don't really enjoy The best thing about my job is the feelingthat I can rely on my mates and colleagues, as we always work as a team.And certainly I like the feeling that my job makes the world a saferplace for those who are not able to defend themselves. As for adventures— I can tell you a couple of thrilling stories, but they don't happenvery often.
5. A fiction book translator: I think my job is just fun. No, I'm notsaying that it's not difficult, or that I don't lake it seriously.Actually it requires good knowledge of the language and good writingskills. My job is very important for people who don't speak English butenjoy reading books written by Kingfish authors. The most challengingpart of the job is to transmit the writer's message to people withoutchanging it. It may be difficult because the author and the reader notonly speak different languages, but have different backgrounds andmentalities. Anyway, I've always liked studying languages andlinguistics, so I find my job very rewarding and enjoyable. And one morething — I really enjoy reading new books and because of my job I can doit before all the other people in this country.
Тест 1 Часть II ЧтениеПрочитай текст и выбери правильный вариант ответа. The Association forImproving the Standards in Education (AISE) is a profit-free,non-governmen- tal organization whose aim, as its name suggests, is topromote new innovative educational technologies and creative ideas thatcan stimulate school and university education. The organization unitespeople of different ages and different backgrounds who want to attractsociety's attention to problematic and controversial issues ineducation. Recently it has conducted a survey of university students inorder to find out their opinion about part-time jobs for full-timestudents. The Association does not claim that the results of the surveyare fully reliable as the data may vary from university to universityand may depend on its type, on the economic situation in the region andother factors. However, the information displayed on the Associationpage gives food for thought. According to it, about forty per cent ofstudents attending universities have jobs during term-time. "If you livein a big city, a job is not an option but a necessity for any student,"Andrew Kaminsky, a fourth year student, says. "I'm very lucky as Idon't have to pay for my education, it's free for me, but I still haveto pay rent and transportation expenses, buy books, food and otherthings. I enjoy going out, but clubbing and outings cost a fortune. Itwould be unfair if my parents had to pay for all that." Another studentJulia Kennan has a different opinion. "I think that job commitments ontop of the studies is too much for me. And this is not because I'm lazy.I just can't do two things at a time. Working students miss lectures.If I were working, it might affect my studies, and I wouldn't get theexpected results. My parents think the same and, fortunately, they canafford to support me now. I think that when I graduate and get a goodjob, I'll be able to do something for them too — to pay for theirtravelling for instance or cover other expenses if necessary." AnnaGlenn, a twenty-year-old working student, presents a moderate viewpointon the issue. "I know that some teachers do not approve of students whocombine job and studies. But I don't think that a job is necessarily badfor studies. On the contrary, if you do a simple but career relatedjob, it's very beneficial. It helps you understand how everything worksand academic information stops being purely theoretical. You understandhow to apply your theoretical knowledge to practice. It is motivatingand it often inspires you to study harder." Opinions differ buteducation costs together with young people's desire to succeed in acompetitive world will inevitably increase the number of workingstudents. Universities should consider the tendency and help theirstudents find part-time jobs in related industries.

Two of ourworkers have worked with us for more than fifty years already and theysay that they love their work and are not going to retire yet. I'm alsoproud of our business because money is not everything for us. Makingfurniture inevitably implies cutting down trees. If we don't think aboutthe environment now, our forests will have been cut down by the middleof the century. To prevent it we plant trees in our greenhouse and thenput them in the forests. I don't know what my life would be like if Ichose some other career, but I'm glad that I didn't. I really think thata family business is a great responsibility but a great privilege too.1. was founded; 2. most beautiful; 3. is designed; 4. craftsmen; 5. haveworked; 6. will have been cut down; 7. chose. Часть IV. ПисьмоПрокомментируй следующее высказывание: Некоторые родители думают, чтостуденты не должны работать во время учебного семестра, так как этоможет негативно сказать на их успеваемости. It is a widely spreadtendency when students have part-time jobs during their studies. Thereseveral reasons for this. But the fact remains that this job-and-studysharing may affect academic performance, and not only good. First of allit is need to be said that students find part-time jobs because theywant to support themselves, they want to be independent. There isnothing wrong in the wish to have spare pocket money. The other side, ofcourse, is that it may have a negative impact on students' performanceat university. On the one hand, students may pay more attention to theirwork as they may judge it more important (they are paid for it). Andthen the studying may be neglected. At this point parents should haveall rights to criticize their children. But on the other hand, if astudent is engaged in the activity that correlates with his professionalsphere of interest it may be quite useful for him or her. At such work astudent can get the practical skills that help him or her in theprocess of studying and the general understanding of his or herspecialty, speaking nothing about the experience that is valued so muchby employers. In conclusion, it should be said that part-time job forstudents may be both positive and negative. All depends on studentsthemselves whether they can cope with studying and workingsimultaneously or not.

1. D. Significance of money in modern life Euros, pounds, dollars,franks, yens — you are unlikely to escape these words if you have yourTV on in peak times for financial news or economic reviews. Lots ofpeople all over the world discuss falls and rises in share prices,currency exchange rates, interest rakes and credit markets. Economistsand bankers consider changes in money flows and their possibleimplications on the domestic and global economy. Governments step downand political parties come to power because of successful or unpopularfinancial policies. There's no need to deny that financial issues have aconsiderable impact on states, businesses and industries. Peopleexperience their influence too, regardless of their status, educationand political views.
2. A. History of money Why does money mean so much to us? Isn't it weirdthat we are so dependent on something we invented ourselves? There's nomoney in the natural world and it happily survives without it. Moneyappears in a certain phase of human society when barter, a directexchange of goods, becomes ineffective, and it accompanies us throughour development. Sometimes ball and even domestic animals were used asmoney, but it wasn't mint, and people had to look for something easierto carry around. Then they used shells, pieces of metal or semi-preciousstones. The first and the most researchers believe, appeared in Asia in640—630 ВС, and the first money was used in China in с 960 AC.
3. E. Money — good or evil? Money always played a significant role insocial development and its meaning was both stimulating and devastating.The stimulating effect of money is indisputable — it often motivatespeople to develop new technologies, to look for new lands and to invadeother peoples' territories. Sadly, but the real reason of any war ismoney — people are ready to kill each other for money or its resources —gas, oil, precious metals and other resources. They are usually enoughbut people, who created money, have always said that money is evil anddreamt about a money-free society.
4. F. Can society function without money? Different socioeconomic Marks(the communist theory is the most famous among them) said that moneywould disappear in the near future and people would be able to livewithout it. However, is it possible for an industrial society tofunction effectively without money? Most economists are not optimisticabout it, but there is no evidence that it is absolutely impossibleeither.
5. B. Types of money In different society's money existed in differentforms, depending on what people considered the most valuable thing,which was easy to keep and carry around. Forms of money nowadays are,probably, not so diverse as they used to be in ancient times, but thevariety is still impressive. Apart from conventional coins and banknoteswe can use the so-called plastic money or banking cards. More and morepeople find this way of paying for goods and services very convenient —it's quick, there's no need to wait for change and it lessens the riskof having your money lost or stolen. Banking cards allow us to buythings online, which, as some prominent economists think, will soonreplace traditional forms of selling via shops, stores and agencies.
6. G. Money of the future The internet can change not only the way wesell and buy things, but money circulation too. Though plastic money hasbecome customary, we still use coins and paper money a lot. But thoseforms of money may cease to exist quite soon. Online trade will probablyenhance the significance of cyber money. Cyber money is already in use,but it's accepted by internet shops only. According to some forecasts,this type of money will dominate — people will not only be buying onlinebut will be earning online too. They can also keep their savings inelectronic purses in cyberspace.

Once a doctor, an engineer, and a programmer were debating what theworld's oldest profession was. The doctor said that medicine was theoldest because God made surgery in the removal of Adam's rib. Theengineer argued that before that act, God had performed feats ofengineering by creating the Earth and heavens from nothing. The doctoragreed that the engineer was right and that engineering was indeed theoldest profession. But then the programmer interjected that programmingwas even older. He was chided by both the doctor and the engineer sayingthat: "Engineering had to be the oldest, because before God engineeredthe Earth and heavens, there was nothing, only the Great Void, onlyChaos!" The programmer simply smiled and said:"Where do you think theChaos came from?" 45Прочитай текст и соотнеси абзацы и заголовки.

Secrets of an Ancient Computer Computers go back farther in history thanyou might imagine. A mysterious mechanism found in a 2,000-year-oldGreek shipwreck may have been used to calculate the positions ofplanets, predict when eclipses were to occur, and solve otherastronomical problems. Known as the Antikythera mechanism, the device isabout the size of a shoebox. When it was found underwater about 100years ago, the mechanism was of poor shape. Few metal pieces hadcongealed into one mass, then broken into pieces. People who studiedwhat was left of the mechanism suspected that it was something to dowith astronomy. To find something more, researchers recently usedadvanced imaging methods, including X-ray computer tomography, to lookinside the metal fragments and to check for ancient writing on thedevice. The researchers discovered the mechanism had at least 30 bronzegears with many as 225 teeth, likely all cut with hand. This fresh lookprovided clear evidence the device could have been used to computeeclipses of the sun and moon. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moonpasses into Earth's shadow, and a solar eclipse occurs when the moonpasses between the sun and Earth. Scientists suspect that the mechanismwas also able to show the motions of the planets. A user could pick aday in the future and, some sort of crank, work out a planet's positionon the date. With the added information, the researchers came up with anew model for mechanism operated. All the findings that the Antikytheramechanism was perhaps 1,000 years ahead of anything else discovered fromits time period.

Anna: I don't really believe that cloning is possible.
Bertie: But there's strong evidence that it's true. Everyone knows aboutDolly, the sheep that has been cloned by British scientists.
A: I think it was a fraud. They didn't create Dolly from an adult cell, but from an embryo.
B: What do you mean?
A: Well, you know that there are natural identical twins. They mighthave taken one of the twin embryos to freeze it. Then they had waiteduntil the other embryo developed, was born naturally and grew into anadult animal.
В: And then?
A: Then they got the early embryo out of the freezer and put it in aninfant incubator. Dolly was born much later than her twin sister,because she had been kept in a freezer for years. And they claimed thatit was a clone, which it wasn't.
B: Don't be stupid! That fact of cloning has been accepted by scientistsall over the world. And there have been lots of other similarexperiments since that time.
A: OK, if you don't want to listen to my reasons — it's your right. I amalways very skeptical about cutting-edge discoveries like cloning,artificial intellect, UFOs, perpetual mobile and others. Seeking fameand recognition, scientists claim that they have found somethingextraordinary, but in most cases the breathtaking discoveries turn outto be frauds.
B: I've never seen such a skeptical person as you are! If all peoplewere like you, science would have died centuries ago and nothing at allhad been created! 7Отметь утверждения, с которыми ты согласен. Выбери одно из выбранныхтобой утверждений и прокомментируй его, аргументируя твой выбор.
1. Scientists should be very careful when experimenting with genes. 2.Scientists should focus on cloning human organs but not on cloningpeople. 3. People can benefit a lot from cloning technologies. I agreewith the idea that scientist should focus on cloning human organs butnot on cloning people. There is a serious problem with organtransplantation in medicine nowadays.

Nanotechnology is the skill of building very small machines by using computer technology 98Прочитай текст и соотнеси заголовки и абзацы.
1. В. Naturally nano. But nanomachines actually already exist insideyou. They are large molecules, like the enzyme that help power yourbody, and the ribosome that make the proteins to form your hair a nails.They are present inside the cells of the body, they just don't looklike our idea machines. But they are designed to work on the nano scale.If we could learn to copy their design we might be able to buildnano-sized robots help heal our bodies.
2. E. Small but dangerous? Some people are concerned that putting suchsmall particles into our bodies may cause us harm. The tiny size ofnanoparticles means they do not have the same properties as largerarticles of the same material. So a chemical that is safe in its normalstate might actually be harmful in its nano- form. Then again, it mightremain harmless. We don't really know yet.
3. D. Waiting time A lot of current work is focused on developingsensors that detect diseases and tiny capsules that take medicines towhere they're needed most in the body. But it could be a long timebefore we see the benefits. All new medicines have to go through longtrials to make sure they're safe. So we'll probably have to wait yearsfor most nano-s; zed healthcare to reach doctors' surgeries andhospitals.
4. G. What should be done? A recent report by the Royal Society and theRoyal Academy of Engineering recommended further research was neededinto the possible damaging effects of nanoparticles. They also suggestedthat all consumer products containing nanoparticles should be labeled.
5. E. Here and now However, cosmetics and beauty companies are alreadyusing this tiny technology to big effect. Skin scientists have designednano-sized "containers" that can carry a product's active ingredientsdeep into your skin, where they work most effectively. And somesunscreens now contain zinc oxide nanoparticles. These protect you fromthe Sun's rays but, unlike larger particles, they don't give you thatchalky look.
6. A. Future vision In the future, nanotechnologies could he doctorsdetect disease earlier, target drugs exact locations in the body, andgive us ways to grow and repair body tissue. But what will this "mini"medicine be like? Media images often show extremely small submarinesshooting through the blood, but the vision of nano-sized healthcare isunlikely become a reality. Scaled-down metal machine won't work on thenano-scale.
7. C. Early days The arrival of nanomachines that could repair ourbodies is a long way off. Before we design these devices, we need tounderstand how things work on this tiny scale. Most of the research isstill at a very early stage. Scientists at Oxford University are studyhow the tails, or "flagella", of some bacteria work. This type of tinymotor could be used future as a propeller for delivering drugs aroundthe body.

Shopping for clothes involves tricky decisions about fit, colour, style,and price. And if a growing number of companies have their way, you'llsoon start checking labels for another key detail: environmental impact.Earth-friendly fabrics are in. It's already possible to buy shirts madefrom bamboo and socks made from corn. Shopping malls of the futuremight also carry clothes made from chicken feathers or rice straw. Thecompanies that make such fabrics are interested in sustainabledevelopment. This means trying to provide things that people need whileprotecting natural resources and preserving biodiversity. "A fullysustainable business would be one that creates no negative impact on theenvironment," says Gordon Rands, an environmental business expert atWestern Illinois University in Macomb. "I don't think such a businessexists yet, but theoretically it's very possible. And companies aremoving in this direction." So, scientists are now looking for new waysto make fabrics for clothes that are good both for your imagination andfor the Earth.

Every day you can see the wind blowing and watch all of that wastedenergy just floating away. A lot of energy is thought to be availableand all you need to use it are a few wind turbines! Currently less than1% of the Earth's energy needs are supplied by wind, with Denmark beingthe most wind-friendly producing 23% of its own energy needs from wind.The energy produced is totally clean and also one of the cheapest aroundand it is able to produce on average 18 times more energy than isconsumed in its construction, compared to nuclear which is estimated ataround five. People are often worried about the look of wind farms butwhat they often forget is that the land can still be used for farming,with only 1% of the space being taken up by the wind turbines. One ofthe biggest concerns about wind turbines, is their effect on bats andbirds. In Norway, nine out of ten sea eagles were killed by turbines.Bats too are a serious problem. Even the manufacturers of wind turbinesare deeply concerned by the numbers of bats being killed, promptingongoing research. 4Заполни пропуски в тексте правильной формой глаголов в скобках.
The internet has changed people's life dramatically. It has allowedpeople from all over the world to communicate with each other andexpress their ideas and opinions. In a real life situation it is noteasy to start speaking with a complete stranger, a person in power or achild. The internet hides your age, class and looks. It has allowed manypeople to set up their own businesses. Some of these people are veryyoung, even under the age of 18. The workplace is becoming increasinglystressful for many people, with longer hours and polluted air in bigcities. The internet offers other alternatives, such as working fromhome and online shopping. Today you don't have to go out to buy goods orearn money. The biggest concern about people using the internet isgetting addicted to it. This happens because computers are used tocompensate for feelings of loneliness, marital and work problems, poorsocial life, and financial problems. All in all, the internet is here tostay and whether it improves or ruins our life is up to us.

E-commerce means selling and buying products online. Nowadays internetshops can compete with retail shops quite successfully. Is online tradejust a fashion or a persistent tendency? Will it ultimately causetraditional shops to die out? Everything depends on customers and 1. Etheir buying habits and preferences. Let us find out how people in thestreets feel about e-trade growing opportunities. "I find buying onlinevery convenient," says Allan Brig, a loyal internet customer. "I haveunlimited access to the internet and I'm practically always online. If Ineed to buy something, I try internet shops first and only if theycan't offer me what I need, do I go to a store, a shopping centre or asupermarket." "Buying via the internet is a great option," Julia Smith, abusy undergraduate, shares the opinion. "And it's good for ideas too.If I want to buy something, say, a present for my friend, but have noidea what exactly I need, I type the key words "buy" and "originalpresents" in the search bar and press "enter". Instantly the searchingsystem provides me with a long list of sites which, as the machinethinks, meet my requirements. I look through the list 2. F but clickonly on the links that seem relevant. Naturally, the results of thesearch may contain lots of irrelevant links. It's irritating sometimes,but the machine doesn't want to confuse me deliberately, 3. С it justapplies mechanical approach to search for information. According to it,if a site contains all three words "buy", "original" and "presents",it'll be selected automatically. Unfortunately, 4. H the searchingsystem is not able to think logically and analyze the content of thesite. But I'm sure it'll learn how to do it very soon." Another opinionbelongs to Maria Chris, a freelance designer. "I often shop online," shesays, "though many of my friends don't think that it's safe enough.That's true, 5. В the internet provides additional opportunities forfraud, but if you are careful, you can feel quite safe. When I buy viathe internet, I usually visit several sites to compare prices anddelivery terms. I want to know if the delivery is free, to put itbluntly, if the delivery costs have been included in the price already,or if they want me to pay extra for it. As for the ways of payment,there are usually two options. The first one is payment by a creditcard, 6. G which means that you need to type in the details of yourcredit card in a special form. The essential information they need towithdraw the money from your account is the card holder's name, thenumber written on the card and the expiry date. Alternatively, you canpay cash to the delivery man when you receive the ordered goods. Thoughpaying cash is not very convenient, as the delivery man may not havechange, I usually prefer it as a very safe way." John Flint, a salesmanager in tourism, doesn't contradict the previous respondents.Actually, he sums up their opinions. "Theoretically speaking", he says,"hackers can break any computer and get access to your personal data 7. Aincluding your passwords, pin codes and credit card details. I'm not acomputer geek and I don't know how it can be done, but I'm sure it'spossible. In spite of that, I feel that e-trade offers us an amazingopportunity to save our time. Shopping is inevitable and sometimes it'sfun, but I'm grateful to the technological progress that now I candevote more time to what I really like — my family, my friends and myrare plants collection."

Last Saturday I was at an air show with a friend. Jeff, my friend, isconsidering a career in aircraft engineering and that's why he isinterested in aviation and the prospects for this industry. Among theplanes presented at the show, a light jet caught Jeff's attentionimmediately. To me it was just a nice elegant blue-and-white jet, butJeff's description was much more professional. He said that it was asingle-pilot jet with two engines, which has an automated cockpit andcan carry five or six passengers. He also said that the jet is a verynoticeable innovation in aircraft construction for years and it may havea wide application in very different spheres. Its non-disputableadvantage is that it can land on a runway much shorter than a runwayrequired by the smallest jet now being flown. Jeff even predicted thatthe new jet would be used as an air taxi. And he may be right — in thenear future business people can be attracted to these jets because theywill get where they need to go much faster and cheaper than on a chartedbusiness jet. The official at the show said that unfortunately the jetscannot be delivered to the customers immediately as some technicalissues still need to be resolved. After the show I was wondering if thatjet could become an attractive alternative to daily commuting one day!

Некоторые считают, что все дети будут учиться в виртуальных школах. Онисмогут входить в виртуальный класс из любого места — из дома, Интернеткафе, побережья океана. Через 50 лет не будет традиционных классов ишкол.
People sometimes can be very optimistic in their prognosis towards ourfuture. High technology is developing very quickly and new devices areimple-mented in our everyday life. And cyberspace has become anessential part of our real life. Educational system has also undergoneserious changes. As for me I do not think that in 50 years children willnot have to go to school. I believe that the traditional system ofeducation will remain the same. From my point of view face-to-facecontact in the process of learning is most important. I would neverrefuse replace real classroom by a virtual one. Besides, traditionalschool involves not only subjects and home tasks but also communicationwith peers. I reckon that students should get not only knowledge butsocial skills also. Virtual communication prevents this, to my mind.Though virtual classroom is rather convenient it allows much freedom forpupils. But I think that it is the only advantage of such a classroom.People always tried to simplify their life. Because of it a lot ofthings were created. But not of them actually simplified our lives.Sometimes vice versa. However, in spite of the fact that moderntechnology is changing our life greatly we still can choose whetheraccept or not these changes.

Dear editor, I enjoy reading your magazine as there's lots ofinformation about new technologies, innovative engineering solutions andideas about how to make our life more and more digital. However,sometimes I doubt that if s all only for good. I think thattechnological progress affects our lifestyle in a very negative way too.It may be true that our life is much more comfortable now than it usedto be. We have lots of devices and gargets that do many jobs for us,like a washing machine and a dishwasher, or entertain us, like computersand iPhones. However, on the other hand, modern technologies depriveour bodies of being active, which causes different diseases and healthproblems. Furthermore, they develop new diseases and addictions. Afriend of mine, for example, has got computer addiction and it worriesme a lot. The thing is that he gave up volleyball, he was quite good at,doesn't go out and spends days and nights pattering on the computerkeyboard. His school is affected very badly as he doesn't do hishomework and even misses classes. His only interest in life is playingcomputer games, browsing the internet and chatting in the chat rooms.I've been trying to distract him from the computer, but nothing works.He is not conscious of the fact that any addiction is a disease whichrequires treatment and if not treated, it will cause seriouscomplications. I really think that he should see a doctor, but hedoesn't want to hear about that. I don't know what I should do in thissituation and would appreciate any advice. Do you think that I'm makingtoo much fuss about it? Should I just leave him alone? What measures canbe taken to make him come back to real life?

You should remember that it needs your attention. As for training Ithink you should ask a professional trainer for an advice.

I look forward to hearingfrom you soon.

1. Living in the country is very boring. You don't have enough people tocommunicate with. Living in the country cannot be boring, as there are alot of things to do such as swimming, playing outdoors, and many otherthings. By the way, it should be borne in mind that the communicationdoes not depend on quantity but on quality. So it is important just tohave one good friend. 2. Living in a big city is very stressful. Allpeople who live there are nervous and rude. It is not correct to tellthat all people in a big city are nervous and stress. If it were, wewould not have any city as no one would live there. People can be happyin different circumstances even in the most stressful. 2. If people livein the country side, they are severed from the political life of thecountry and don't know what's going on there. In the modern societymedia has a huge power. Television and internet are everywhere now.People in every corner of a country may be in the mainstream. 3. Ifpeople live in cities they are severed from nature and don't care aboutenvironmental issues. In modern cities much attention is paid to theenvironment. In any towns there are beautiful big parks where citizensmay spend their free time. 4. Living in the country makes peopleunsociable and reserved. They don't want to know what's happeningoutside their little community. In the country people know each otherperfectly well. They usually visit their neighbours and get in touchwith each other. 5. Living in big cities makes people neglect eachother. They don't care about other people's well-being and never helpanyone. You can find a lot of indifferent people everywhere, in does notdepend on one particular place. In cities there are a lot of exampleswhen people help each other during some emergencies such as a fire orflood. 6Распредели слова по колонкам. 7Закончи эссе.
If I had to choose where to live — in a city or in the countryside, itwould be a very difficult choice for me. Both alternatives have manyadvantages as well as disadvantages. As indisputable advantages of thecity is that the city can offer you more perks of modern that thecountry can do. There are a lot of cafes, theatres and museums incities, while there is none in the country. In most cases thecountryside cannot offer the same, but it can attract with fresh air,quiet and peaceful environment. The worst thing about living in the cityis its rapid pace of life. Everyone is in a hurry. People usually donot have time even to look at the sky or to smile to passers-by. In thecountry I would hate being severed from the rest of the world. Beingseparated from a megalopolis, from this rapid life is the worst thingfor me about living in the country. The most reasonable thing, in myopinion, is to create a new type of settlement which could combine themain benefits of both, i.e. wide range of modern perks and perfectenvironment and would rid of the drawbacks of the both.

Некоторые думают, что Интернет может быть опасным для детей иподростков, потому что у них может возникнуть зависимость. Такаязависимость может крайне негативно сказаться на их жизни, вот почемуИнтернет должен использоваться только в образовательных целях.
Internet is an essential part of our everyday life. It serves millionsof purposes. Everyone could find something for him or her. Butunfortunately, sometimes internet may affect our life in a very negativeway especially for children and teenagers. Doctors remark that nowadaysa new type of addiction has appeared, i.e. internet addiction. The mostvulnerable group of people who suffer from this addiction is childrenand teenagers. They absorb completely in cyberspace. They stopsocializing with their peers in reality; they spend a lot of timeplaying computer games. Of course it affects their studying performance.But should not forget that internet may bring a lot of positive momentsalso. It is not only an endless source of information which can be usedin educational purposes but also a place where there is no limits forcommunication. Timid teenagers may find friends with the help ofinternet as it helps them feel more confident. In conclusion, I wouldlike to give some advice parents. It is very important to be attentiveto your children and monitor all the changes they undergo. If you noticeany symptoms of internet addiction, it will be easier to cure it at anearly stage. Internet is not a source of world evil, it is not verysmart to forbid your children use it.

New innovations are coming into our life. Even the system of educationhas become more innovative. New technology is widely used in allschools. They include computers, DVD, overhead projectors and many otherdevices. The system of assessment is also changing. New computer basedtest have been implemented. But has it made results more objective? Thesupporters of this idea are convinced that the machine is absolutelyunprejudiced. We hardly can argue this statement. Using computers allowsus to speak about absence of any chance to cheating. In this case wecan rely on computers. But on the other hand, computers may break down.All the results of the candidate may be lost. The only solution is tocreate methods how to save the information the candidate has entered.Additionally we should not forget that for some people it is morepreferable, more convenient to take a paper-based test as it is justmore typical. Certainly, all time there are supporter and opposition ofinnovations. But again the decision will be made by the majority. Andfrom my point of view, this decision will be positive for computers.
