[00:00.00] CHAPTER 7 DAILY LIFE

[00:12.80]Unit 7 Daily Life

[00:18.96]Conversations

[00:22.41]John invites Betty to have dinner with their friends.

[00:29.65]John:Hi,Betty,Rose and Johnson would like to have dinner with us before the movie.

[00:36.78]Betty:Hmm...What time are we supposed to meet them?

[00:42.06]John:At about half past five.

[00:46.42]Betty:Maybe you'd better go without me.

[00:50.49]I really wish I could go,but I have too much work to do.

[00:56.56]I'm writing an article,and it has to go out tomorrow.

[01:01.91]John:Oh,that's really too bad.

[01:06.04]Betty:I'm sorry to let you down.

[01:09.88]John:That's OK.I can understand you.

[01:14.84]Three friends talk about daily routine and habits in England and in China.

[01:24.19]Li:Robert,you are from England,aren't you?

[01:29.34]Robert:Yes,I am...from the north of England.Um...Why?

[01:36.10]Li:Well,do you find that life is very different from...er...er life in England?

[01:45.77]I mean life here and life in England.

[01:50.63]Robert:Yes,it really is,because everything happens earlier here.

[01:56.69]Li:Oh. Green:It certainly does.

[02:00.84]Robert:Yes...you get up earlier in the morning.

[02:06.30]Li:When,when do you get up?

[02:10.74]Robert:I don't get up until 7:30 in England.

[02:15.89]Li:7:30?

[02:19.23]Green:And I get up at 8:15 and I arrive at work between 9:20 and 9:30.

[02:26.89]Li:I see.At what time er...do people have their dinner?

[02:34.04]Green:Oh,it depends on what time they get home.

[02:39.01]I don't have dinner till about 7 or 8 o'clock.

[02:44.36]Robert:Oh,that's quite early,Green.I can...sometimes 9 o'clock or 10 o'clock.

[02:54.32]Green:But where I live most people have dinner at 5:30 or 6:30 in fact.

[03:02.65]Li:It varies,doesn't it?

[03:06.31]Green:Yes,there is a lot fo difference. Robert:Hm.

[03:12.08]Li:What do you do when you are going out in the evening?

[03:17.22]Robert:Oh,very often there's no time for dinner...I go straight from work to...

[03:24.46]play sport or go to the cinema or whatever it is.

[03:30.39]Li:And you eat afterwards?

[03:34.05]Robert:Yes.But something light.

[03:38.72]I try and have a big lunch in the middle of the day.

[03:43.58]Green:And we begin work at 9 o'clock in England.

[03:48.86]Here we work... yes 8 o'clock every day.

[03:54.11]Robert:Yes.That's much earlier.

[03:58.18]Li:Yes,yes,it is.You'll soon get used to it.I am sure.

[04:04.66]John and Ellen are planning for the weekend.

[04:11.01]Ellen:You know,this is the first Saturday I'v ehad off in months.

[04:17.25]John:Well,what are you planning to do with all this free time?

[04:23.11]Ellen:Maybe I'll clean out the house.

[04:26.87]John:It certainly needs it.

[04:30.84]But,remember,you're not supposed to lift anything heavy.

[04:36.90]I just don't want you to have any more back problems.

[04:42.46]Oh,and remember,we've invited the Smiths for dinner tonight.

[04:48.63]Ellen:What time are they going to be here?

[04:52.60]John:At about six o'clock.

[04:56.75]Ellen:Should I make dessert?

[04:59.99]John:Not unless you want to.They said not to go to any trouble.

[05:05.95]Tom asks Rose if she needs something.

[05:12.61]Tom:I'm going into town.Can i get you anything while I'm out?

[05:18.35]Rose:Do you think you might to by a post office?

[05:23.11]Tom:I could.What would you like?

[05:27.26]Rose:Oh.Could you get me a book of twenty-cent stamps?

[05:32.72]Tom:Sure.I'd be glad to.

[05:36.27]Rose:I'll go and get some money.

[05:39.93]Tom:Don't worry about it.You can pay me when I get back.

[05:45.29]Rose:If you happen to go by the stationery,

[05:50.54]could you buy a pad of writing-paper for me?

[05:55.40]Tom:Sure.No problem.

[05:58.66]Rose:But don't bother if it's inconvenient.Here's a ten-dollar bill.

[06:05.01]I'm sure that it'll be more than enough.

[06:09.58]Oh,and would you mind posting these letters?

[06:15.04]Tom:Not at all.

[06:18.10]Rose:Just one more thing...could you drop off this film at a camera shop?

[06:24.76]Tom:Sure,if I have time.

[06:28.81]Rose:Thank you very much!

[06:32.15]Passage Life

[06:37.01]Sometimes,people come into your life

[06:42.16]and you realize that they are there for some purpose,

[06:47.48]to teach you a lesson,or to help you to know who you are or who you want to become.

[06:55.14]You'd never know who these people may be,your friend,your classmate,

[07:01.69]your neighbor,your co-worker,your teacher,or even a stranger,

[07:08.46]but they will deeply affect your life in some way.

[07:14.10]And sometimes things happen to you that may seem unfair,

[07:20.16]painful and horribleat first,but later,

[07:25.23]you realize that without overcoming those difficulties you would never know your strength,

[07:32.68]willpower or potential.

[07:36.75]Everything happens for a reason.

[07:41.01]Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck.

[07:46.76]Illness,great achievement,love,

[07:52.03]injury and failure all come to test the limits of your soul.

[07:58.09]Without these tests,life would be like a straight and flat road,

[08:04.75]but it goes nowhere.

[08:08.31]It would be safe and comfortable,but dull and compoletely meaningless.

[08:14.97]Those people who affect your life,and the failure and the success you experience

[08:22.02]can help you to create who you are and who you become.

[08:28.19]Even the bad experiences can be learned from.

[08:32.84]In fact,they are the most important ones.

[08:38.01]If someone breaks your heart,or hurts you,please forgive them,

[08:44.67]for they helped you to lean about the importance of being careful when you open your heart.

[08:51.33]If someone loves you,love them back,

[08:56.48]because they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to thigs.

[09:03.63]You can make of your life anything you wish.

[09:09.28]Appreciate every moment and take everything from those moments as possible as you can

[09:17.71]because you may never be able to experience them again.

[09:23.28]Talk to people who you have never talked to before,and when they talk ,

[09:29.84]you'd better listen to them.

[09:33.60]Let yourself fall in love,then break free and set your sights high.

[09:40.44]Tell yourself your are a great person and believe in yourself,

[09:46.50]for if you don't believe in yourself,

[09:50.34]it will be difficult for others to believe in you.

[09:54.99]Make every day meaningful and interesting.

[09:59.95]Create your own life and live without any regrets.

[10:05.31]Love your life and you may have some pleasant,cheerful and happy hours.

[10:13.17]If we are strong enough to forgive,brave enough to love,

[10:19.65]generous enough to rejoice in other's happiness,

[10:24.90]we can make great achievements in our lives.

[10:29.86]Words and Expressiions

[11:04.97]Exercises

[11:08.32]Section I Listening Comprehension

[11:13.38]Listen to the record.

[11:16.91]Answer each question by choosing A,B,C or D from the four possible choices.

[11:26.55]A

[11:29.48]Most Americans eat breakfast and lunch quickly,

[11:35.14]and the favorite fast food in the United States is the hamburger.

[11:41.39]It seems impossible,but 34 billion hamburgers are eaten every year.

[11:49.75]This is enough to make a line of hamburgers around the world four times.

[11:57.51]The favorite place to buy a hamburger is a fastfood restaurant.

[12:04.04]In these restaurants,people stand at the counter,order their food,

[12:11.27]wait a few minutes and carry the fodd to a table themselves.

[12:17.44]They can eat it in the restaurant or take the food out and eat it at home,

[12:23.68]at work or in a park.

[12:28.36]Fastfood restaurants are very popular because the service is fast

[12:35.02]and the food is inexpensive.

[12:39.17]For many people,this is more important than the quality of the food.

[12:46.22]These restaurants are popular because the food is always the same.

[12:52.78]People know that if they eat at a certain company's restaurant

[12:56.88]in the north or south of the city,

[13:01.14]the food will be the same;

[13:04.80]if they eat in New York of San Francisco,it will still be the same.

[13:12.06]B

[13:14.83]Tom:Hi,Mary.

[13:18.17]Mary:Oh,hi,Tom.

[13:21.54]Tom:How's your day?Is everything OK?

[13:25.90]Mary:Oh,I'm fine.What about you?

[13:30.76]Tom:I'm fine too.Any ideas for this evening?Thank God,it's Friday again.

[13:38.91]Mary:You mean going out?Oh,I'm feeling a bit tired.

[13:45.29]I mean it we go...how about seeing a film?

[13:51.14]Tom:Yes.That's a good idea.

[13:55.58]Mary:Do you know what's on tonight?

[13:59.63]Tom:No,I don't really know.

[14:03.39]Mary:I think...I heard Titanic is on.

[14:09.35]It's really a good film...you know...about the love between a girl and a boy.

[14:16.79]Tom:Er,well...to tell you the truth,

[14:22.25]I've read the book and I wasn't that interested in it.

[14:27.11]Mary:Weren't you?

[14:30.35]Tom:Well,it sounds a bit stupid.

[14:34.42]Mary:Does it?Oh,I'd have quite liked it.

[14:39.57]Well,never mind,let's see if there's anything else on.

[14:45.81]I'll go and get the paper.Wait a minute.

[14:51.06]Tom:I'll tell you what.I think the film Gone with the Wind is on.

[14:57.41]Mary:Oh,yes,I'd really like to see that.

[15:02.77]Now let's have a look...What time's the performance?...Oh,God!You won't believe it.

[15:12.51]Tom:What?

[15:15.57]Mary:Finished yesterday!

[15:19.04]Tom:Oh,no,what a pity!

[15:23.40]Mary:I'd really like to have seen that.

[15:27.84]Tom:Er...anything else's on?

[15:32.70]Mary:Er...yes...how about this film,The Brave Heart?

[15:39.68]I've heard of it.What's that about?

[15:44.64]Tom:Well,The Brave Heart...He won an Oscar for it,didn't he?

[15:50.99]Mary:Did he?I don't know.Is it good?

[15:56.73]Tom:I'm not very keen on that.

[16:00.89]Mary:Hang on.Let's see what else is on.Rose Cinema...

[16:07.84]Oh,The Hero at the Rose Cinema.

[16:12.70]Tom:Oh,that' sbe great.I'd like to see that.

[16:17.87]Mary:Well,actually I've seen it.

[16:22.41]But,I wouldn't mind seeing it again,it was really good.You'll enjoy it.

[16:29.18]Tom:Are you sure?What time is it on?

[16:33.72]Mary:Let me see,there's one...first performance at 6:00,second one at 8:15.

[16:42.97]Tom:The 8:15 would be good because we still have time to book the tickets.

[16:49.63]Mary:Yeah.

[16:52.79]Tom:What's their phone number?I'll ring up and book them.

[16:57.94]Mary:Oh,you'll book them now.Great! Now let's have a look.

[17:05.31]Yeah,here we are...er...it's 8835288.

[17:14.08]Tom:OK.All right...I'll book them right now..Hello...Rose Cinema...

[17:22.55]This is Tom speaking.We's like to book two tickets for the 8:15 film The Hero.

[17:30.91]Are the tickets still available?...They are!Great!

[17:36.97]Ah,Tom...Yes,two people.Thank you..well,it's done!

[17:44.41]What about some food then?I'm hungry.

[17:48.49]Mary:Oh,yes,I'm hungry,too!

[17:53.03]Tom:How about some Japanese food?

[17:57.79]I know a very good restaurant quite close to the Rose Cinema.

[18:03.53]Mary:That'll be very nice.I feel like some Japanese food tonight.It's lovely...

[18:10.48]C

[18:13.43]W:Have you done this work before?

[18:17.59]M:No,I haven't,but I really want to do this kind of job.

[18:23.83]W:Really?Why are you interested in it?

[18:28.79]M:Because I think it would give me a chance to use

[18:33.76]and develop the thngs I've leamod at school and in my last job.

[18:39.32]W:By the way,what was your last job?

[18:44.15]M:I worked in an Insurance Company.

[18:48.59]W:Why did you leave?

[18:52.15]M:Well,it was an interesting job in many ways,

[18:57.11]and I felt learned a great deal,but,to be honest with you,

[19:03.35]I had several arguments with the boss,

[19:07.61]and I decided it would be better to find another job.

[19:12.68]W:What are these arguments about?

[19:16.73]M:He said he had told me to do things and I had not done them.

[19:23.00]But it was not my fault.

[19:26.76]The fault was that he forgot to tell me to do them.

[19:31.80]And when I told him he had never told me,he became very angry and said I was lying.

[19:39.45]This simply wasn't true.

[19:43.40]W:Oh,I see.

[19:46.87]M:Please don't misunderstand me.I'm not criticizing my boss.

[19:53.22]To tell you the truth,I liked him very much.

[19:57.66]But he was overworked and it seemed that he forgot things easily...

[20:03.51]I think I learned even from that...from our arguments.

[20:08.66]W:What do you think you have learned from that?

[20:12.92]M:I think I learned that it's very important for you

[20:17.46]to ask more questions about what you are going to go.

[20:22.32]W:I understand you.It's very interesting.

[20:27.57]Supplementary Reading

[20:31.54]British Homes and American Homes

[20:36.79]British homes are like American's but usually smaller.

[20:43.25]Old people,young and unmarried people do not live together.

[20:49.49]Many British people(about one third)live in rented state-owned homes,called"council houses".

[20:58.84]Many of these are flats,but some are houses,each with a small garden.

[21:06.00]Other people rent their homes from private owners.

[21:11.04]Half of the families in Britain own homes.

[21:16.32]Millions of these"owner-occupied"houses are the same,

[21:22.06]with two or three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs,

[21:27.42]a sitting-room,dining room and kitchen downstairs,

[21:33.66]and a small garden at the back or front of the house.

[21:38.91]To pay for their houses,

[21:43.27]homeowners borrow money from a "building society"and pay back a little every month.

[21:51.14]There are about 19 million homes in Britain.

[21:56.60]They are big homes and small homes,old cottages and new high-rise buildings,

[22:03.96]houses and flats.

[22:07.62]Many British people love old houses,and they are more expensive than modern ones.

[22:15.67]They also love gardening and gardens are everywhere in towns,

[22:22.22]villages,and even in the more distant country.

[22:27.47]Some are very small,with just one tree and a few flowers.

[22:34.24]Others are enormous,

[22:38.00]with plenty of flowers and enough vegetables and fruit trees to feed a family.

[22:45.05]There are a lot of different kinds of homes in Britain,but they are not enough.

[22:52.42]It can be difficult for young people

[22:56.78]to find a home when they get married and start a family.

[23:01.82]Like British homes,many young Americans do not live with their families,

[23:08.38]but in apartments(Americans call it"apartment",but British people say"flat")

[23:16.74]blocks of residential areas where everyone is more or less of the same age.

[23:23.90]Young people often move away from home when they leave school or finish their education.

[23:31.84]They move into shared apartments if they can afford it.

[23:36.99]They do their own cooking and cleaing

[23:41.74]and go to the family home occasionally for the weekend.

[23:48.61]Young married couples may move to new suburbs where most people have young children.

[23:56.47]In the country,some even build their houses themselves.

[24:03.53]If a family's income goes up,they may move to another suburb,

[24:10.40]where the houses are bigger,with two or even three garages,a swimming pool,

[24:18.05]a game room for the children,and everything a family could want.

[24:24.82]Old people often do not live with their grown-up children.

[24:30.25]Many live in old people's homes.

[24:34.69]Some live in special towns built for old people,

[24:40.05]where are no young children and the environment is very quiet.

[24:46.99]Americans often move their houses

[24:51.44]and some families change their homes every few years.

[24:57.36]Every year 20% of Americans move houses,from north to south,or from west to east.
