[02:55.70]Module 6 Unexplained Mysteries of the Natural World


[03:04.20]2 Read the passage and answer the questions.

[03:09.15]The Monster of Lake Tianchi

[03:13.06]The "Monster of Lake Tianchi" in the Changbai Mountains in Jilin province,

[03:18.87]northeast China,is back in the news after several recent sightings.

[03:24.44]The director of a local tourist office,Meng Fanying,

[03:29.20]said the monster, which seemed to be black in colour,

[03:32.63]was ten metres from the edge of the lake during the most recent sighting.

[03:37.66]"It jumped out of the water like a seal --

[03:40.61]about 200 people on Changbai's western peak saw it," he said.

[03:46.45]Although no one really got a clear look at the mysterious creature,

[03:51.09]Xue Junlin,a local photographer,

[03:53.79]claimed that its head looked like a horse.

[03:56.61]In another recent sighting,

[03:59.27]a group of soldiers claim they saw an animal moving on the surface of the water.

[04:03.99]The soldiers,who were walking along the side of the lake,

[04:07.32]watched the creature swimming for about two minutes.

[04:10.97]"It was greenish- black and had a round head with 10-centimetre horns",

[04:17.12]one of the soldiers said.

[04:19.18]A third report came from Li Xiaohe,

[04:23.35]who was visiting the lake with his family.

[04:25.85]He claims to have seen a round black creature

[04:29.27]moving quickly through the water.

[04:32.00]After three or four hundred metres it dived into the water.

[04:36.70]Ten minutes later the monster appeared again and repeated the action.

[04:42.34]Mr Li Xiaohe

[04:44.22]said that he and his family were able to see the monster clearly

[04:47.95]because the weather was fine and the lake was calm.

[04:52.04]There have been reports of monsters in Lake Tianchi

[04:56.22]since the beginning of the last century,

[04:58.95]although no one has seen one close up.

[05:01.82]Some photos have been taken

[05:04.20]but they are not clear because it was too far away.

[05:08.36]Many people think

[05:09.64]the monster may be a distant cousin of the Loch Ness monster in Scotland.

[05:14.57]They also think that there might be similar creatures in other lakes around the world

[05:20.55]Scientists,however,a re sceptical.

[05:24.25]They say that the low-temperature lake

[05:26.83]is unlikely to be able to support such large living creatures.

[05:32.01]Lake Tianchi is the highest volcanic lake in the world.

[05:37.77]It is 2,189 metres high and covers an area of about ten square kilometres.

[05:48.00]In places it is more than 370 metres deep.


[06:00.96]3 Listen to the first part of the radio interview and check your answers.

[07:26.83]4 Listen to the second part of the interview.

[07:31.76]How many explanations are given

[07:34.09]for the disappearance of the dinosaurs?

[10:05.17]5 Listen to the second part again.

[10:09.99]Tick the key words and phrases when you hear them.


[12:44.09]1 Listen to the sentences.

[12:48.08]Say which consonants disappear.

[12:51.29]1 I'll come straight to the point.

[12:57.13]2 The most widely accepted theory.

[13:03.56]3 I think it's the most likely explanation.

[13:12.10]Now practise saying the sentences.

[13:20.13]2 Study these sentences and practise saying them.

[13:27.81]Now listen and check.

[13:33.22]1 We went to Loch Ness.

[13:38.13]2 We saw the most fantastic creature.

[13:45.20]3 We didn't take any photos.


[13:57.43]Read the passage and answer the questions.

[14:00.77]1 How are western dragons different from Chinese dragons?

[14:07.96]2 Do you know any dragon stories?

[14:13.39]The Universal Dragon

[14:17.06]Dragons can be friendly or fierce,

[14:21.46]they can bring good luck or cause death and destruction,

[14:26.09]but one thing is sure--

[14:28.17]people talk about them almost everywhere in the world.

[14:31.95]For a creature that doesn't actually exist,that's quite something.

[14:36.81]In Chinese culture,dragons are generous and wise,

[14:41.70]although they can be unpredictable.

[14:44.49]The dragon was closely connected to the royal family:

[14:48.56]the emperor's robes have a symbol of a gold dragon with five claws.

[14:54.13]Other members of the royal family were allowed to wear dragon symbols,too,

[14:59.02]but with fewer claws and of a different colour.

[15:03.01]According to popular belief,if you were born in the year of the dragon,

[15:07.73]you are intelligent, brave,and a natural leader.

[15:12.18]But in the west,dragons had a different reputation.

[15:17.35]The very first text in English,

[15:20.15]the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf,tells the story of a Scandinavian hero,


[15:26.72]who fights and kills a dangerous dragon but is himself killed in the fight.

[15:32.91]However,across the border in Wales,

[15:36.50]the red dragon which appears on the Welsh flag is a positive symbol,

[15:41.20]indicating strength and a sense of national identity.

[15:45.91]Why should the dragon have a different character

[15:49.56]in different parts of the world?

[15:52.38]Some experts believe it is due to the animals the myths grew out of.

[15:57.50]In the west,the idea of the dragon probably came from the snake --

[16:02.95]an animal which people hated and were afraid of.

[16:07.03]But in China,the idea of the dragon may have come from the alligator --

[16:13.52]a shy animal which lives in rivers,

[16:17.04]but which is usually only seen when there is plenty of water--

[16:21.07]a good sign for agriculture.

[16:23.92]So the Chinese dragon was a bringer of good fortune.
