Lesson 22 ;
Text A If I Don't Do Anything Else ;
Yesterday morning Paul said to himself. ;
"I've got to write that economics paper today. ;
If I don't do anything else,I've got to write that paper." ;
He sat down at his desk and put a sheet of paper into his typewriter. ;
He looked out of the window,ate a piece of candy, ;
got up to get a drink of water,brushed his teeth, ;
and sat down at his desk again. ;
"I haven't written my family since Thanksgiving,"he said to himself. ;
"I'll write them a letter first." ;
Paul wrote his family a long letter. ;
"My typewriter needs a new ribbon. ;
I've got to change this ribbon before I write my economics paper." ;
The ink from the typewriter ribbon got his hands very dirty, ;
so he washed them and washed them.While he was washing his hands, ;
he noticed that his fingernails were much too long. ;
He cut them very carefully and then went back to his desk. ;
He put a sheet of paper into his typewriter, ;
looked out of the window,and looked at his watch. It was noon. ;
"I'll get some lunch now,"he said to himself. ;
"After lunch I'll write that paper, if I don't do anything else." ;

7.Read the following passage once. ;
Underline the key words while reading and retell the story to your partner. ;
A Bread in the Routine ;
Jonathan Rivers lived alone in a neat,two- storey, semi-detached house ;
in Compton Street. ;
Like many bachelors approaching middle age, ;
he was getting rather set in his ways.He cau -ght the same train to London every morning, ;
ate his lunch in the same crowded restau- rant near the office where he worked ;
and always came home on the 6.00 train. ;
People were so used to seeing Jonathan set off at a quarter past eight, ;
dressed in a simple dark suit, ;
wearing a black bowler -hat and carrying a rolled umbrella on his arm, ;
that they said you didn't need to wear a watch if you lived in Compton Street. ;
Ever since Jonathan had set up house in Compton Street, ;
he had looked after it very carefully. ;
He worked hard in the garden every Sunday ;
and set out to impress the neighbours with his flower beds and lawn. ;
Before he left the house in the mornings, ;
he carefully closed all the doors downstairs, ;
opened some windows to let the air in and locked the front door. ;
Everything Jonathan did was tidy and systematic.One summer evening ;
Jonathan returned home as usual at five minutes to seven precisely. ;
When he opened the front gate he imme -diately noticed something strange. ;
There was a heavy footprint in the earth in one of the flower beds. ;
Jonathan was just going to blame the milkman or the postman ;
when he noticed that one of the white lace curtains ;
in the front room downstairs was out of place. ;
Jonathan never left anything out of place. ;
He walked up to the front door and opened it quietly. ;
He listened carefully for a few moments but could hear nothing. ;
The front-room door was half-open. ;
Jonathan studied it thoughtfully, ;
wondering if he had forgotten to close it that morning. ;
He had never forgotten before. ;
He stepped silently across the hall to the door and looked inside the room. ;
The shadow of a man was clearly reflected on the far wall in the evening sunlight. ;
He had obviously been standing behind the door since Jonathan's return. ;
Jonathan grabbed the door-handle,slammed the door and turned the key. ;
Then he calmly picked up the telephone in the hall ;
and set about calling the police. ;
The burglar,a tall, thick-set,bearded fellow, ;
tried to climb through a window to get out but Jonathan had expected that. ;
He set about him with his umbrella, using it like a sword. ;
Three minutes later the police arrived on the scene. ;
Jonathan was a little annoyed that he had to have dinner later than usual ;
but on the whole he felt quite pleased with himself. ;
Lesson 23 ;
Text A Would You Like a Shave or a Haircut? ;
A poor farmer who had always lived in the country ;
and had never visited a big town won a lot of money,so he decided ;
that he could now afford a holiday in an excellent hotel by the sea. ;
When lunch-time came on his first day there, ;
he decided to go and eat in the restaurant of the hotel. ;
The head waiter showed him to his table,took his order and went away. ;
When he looked at the farmer again, he had a surprise! ;
The farmer had tied his table napkin round his neck. ;
The head waiter was very annoyed at this and immediately ;
told one of the other waiters in the resta -urant to go to the man ;
and inform him,without being in any way insulting, ;
that people did not do such a thing in restaurants of that quality. ;
The waiter went to the farmer and said in a friendly voice, ;
"Good morning,sir. Would you like a shave,or a haircut?" ;
Text B What Do the Romans Do? ;
MR TURNBULL:When in Rome,do as the Romans do, they say. ;
MRS TURNBULL:What do the Romans do? ;
MR TURNBULL:They live in Rome,of course,and go to work by car or bus. ;
But sometimes it takes too long that way ;
because of the traffic jams, so they walk. ;
MRS TURNBULL:In other words,the Romans do what everyone else does. ;
MR TURNBULL:Yes,but they do it differ- ently.Everything is different. ;
MRS TURNBULL:What do you mean? ;
MR TURNBULL:Well,the climate's different for a start. ;

MRS TURNBULL:I envy them the sun. ;
MR TURNBULL:I know. You hate the rain, don't you? ;
MRS TURNBULL:I certainly do. ;
MR TURNBULL:And a Roman really loves life.He knows how to enjoy himself. ;
MRS TURNBULL:They always eat spaghetti and drink wine,don't they? ;
MR TURNBULL:Not always But they like a good meal. ;
Lots of tourists go to Rome just for the food,you know. ;
MRS TURNBULL:Really? How much does it cost to fly to Rome? ;
MR TURNBULL:I don't know exactly,but it costs a lot of money. ;

He passes the school on the way to the office. ;

Inside they usually decorate a Christmas tree ;
and the fireplace, if there is one. ;

If there is a tree in front of their house, ;
they place colored lights on it too.In New York City,there is a very tall, ;
beautifully decorated Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center at Christmas time. ;

People come from many cities to admire the trees ;
and the gaily decorate -d store windows on the principal avenues of large cities. ;

7.Read the following passage once. ;
Underline the key words while reading and retell the story to your partner. ;
Going to the Theater ;
If you want to be certain of seeing a play in London, ;
you have to book your seat in advance. ;
You can buy your tickets ;
either at a Theatre Ticket Agency or at the Box Office in the theatre itself. ;
It is very rare that you will be lucky enough to get a ticket ;
five minutes before the play begins. ;
If you go in a large party it is not always possible ;
for all of you to sit in the same part of the theatre. ;
Some will have to sit in the Stalls, others in the Dress Circle ;
and some in the Upper Circle. ;
These seats are the least expensive of the three ;
Seats in a Box or the Front Stalls are the most expensive. ;
Lesson 25 ;
Text A A Ten-Dollar Bill ;
Sam waited patiently in the long line at the grocery store. ;
He had come to pick up a few items for his mother. ;
He often did chores for his parents after school. ;
He enjoyed helping out at home. ;
As he waited,he daydreamed about the new camera he wanted to buy. ;
He wanted to buy it soon because his family was going on a vacation, ;
and he wanted to take pictures of their trip There was only one problem. ;
He needed seven more dollars to buy the camera. ;
His lawn-mowing job at the Smith's should provide the money shortly. ;
Suddenly Sam was roughly shoved aside. ;
He recognized Mrs Sanders, ;
an unkind and unfriendly person who lived on his block. ;
She had shoved in front of him without even smiling. ;
Just as Mrs Sanders received her change and her purchases, ;
a ten-dollar bill flew out of her hand and fell at Sam's feet. ;
Mrs Sanders,however, ;
was too busy criticizing the cashier for his slowness to notice. ;
As Sam bent to pick up the money,he thought quickly. ;
The money did belong to Mrs Sanders, ;
but she deserved to lose it after the way she had behaved, and,with it, ;
he could buy the camera. ;

"Miss Green," he said, "Why are you eating potatoes and bread? ;
They aren't in your diet.""But,doctor," Miss Green answered, ;

Lesson 26 ;
Text A What Are the Times of Meals? ;
Mr and Mrs Williams had always spent their summer holidays in England in the past ;
in a small boarding- -house at the seaside. ;
One year,however,Mr Williams made a lot of money in his business, ;
so they decided to go to Rome and stay at a really good hotel ;
while they went around and saw the sights of that famous city. ;
They flew to Rome,and arrived at their hotel late one evening. ;
They expected that they would have to go to bed hungry, ;
because in the boarding-houses they had been used to in the past, ;
no meals were served after seven o'clock in the evening. ;
They were therefore surprised ;
when the clerk who received them in the hall of the hotel ;
asked them whether they would be taking dinner there that night. ;
"Are you still serving dinner then?"asked Mrs Williams. ;
"Yes,certainly, madam,"answered the clerk. ;
"We serve it until half-past nine." ;
"What are the times of meals then?"asked Mr Williams. ;
"Well,sir,"answered the clerk, ;
"we serve breakfast from seven to half- past eleven in the morning, ;
lunch from twelve to three in the afternoon,tea from four to five, ;
and dinner from six to half-past nine." ;
"But that hardly leaves any time for us to see the sights of Rome!" ;
said Mrs Williams in a disappointed voice. ;

"We'll tell you all about it after supper, "Bill said. ;
"We'd better go and get our food. ;
The warden's already told us that we're late..." ;
After supper,the group sat around talking. ;
STEVE:Ugh!The food here really is bad. My soup was cold. ;
And the meat- huh!-it was like leather! ;
LISE:Yes,and they don't give you very much,either. ;
I'm still hungry. Are hostels in England always as bad as this? ;
ANNA:I haven't stayed in one for ages. ;
But I'm sure this one is especially bad.And the warden is so unpleasant... ;

B:Oh,he wanted to know what time I got up this morning ;
and if I had a bath or a shower--you know,things like that. ;
A:What on earth has that got to do with some money disappearing? ;
B:I've no idea.Oh yes,and the most ridiculous thing. ;

B:Hmm.Thank you very much. ;

so she went to her doctor about it. ;

so he sent her to the local hospital for tests.The hospital, of course, ;
sent the results of the tests direct to Mrs Black's doctor, ;
and the next morning he telephoned her ;
to give her a list of the things that he thought she should not eat, ;
as any of them might be the cause of her skin trouble. ;
Mrs Black carefully wrote all the things down on a piece of paper, ;
which she then left beside the telephone while she went out to a ladies'meeting. ;

I used to take them when I had to work overtime,you know. ;
JEAN:How many did you use to take? BETTY:Three every night. ;
JEAN:Good heavens. Why did you take so many? ;

JEAN:He was quite right. ;
BETTY:So I stopped drinking coffee late at night instead. ;
