Speaker 1

Generally summer is better time for holiday than winter. Summer holidays for school students are the longest, but, nevertheless, I believe that winter holidays are the best. They are intense and exciting… and you can do winter sports like skiing and skating. New Year and Christmas add a lot to the holiday atmosphere. Not only schoolchildren, but most adults enjoy being out of work and classes and it’s fantastic time when families can get together and it’s real fun.

Speaker 2

In my opinion we have too long of a holiday time during our school year. Winter holidays are usually OK, they are quite intense due to the season holidays we have at that time (I mean Christmas and New Year). And people normally have a lot to do during these holidays – they visit families and friends, exchange gifts and have fun together. But in summer or autumn I don’t know what to do when I don’t have to go to school. I feel bored and watch TV too much, which makes me feel tired and even depressed. Probably if I had a hobby I would enjoy holidays much more.

Speaker 3

Yes, holidays are certainly the best time in our life, but my last holiday was a nightmare. The trip, I had been looking forward to, turned into a disaster from the very beginning. I was fighting problems every single day of my two-week holiday. I was late for the flight and had to wait for the next one. Then my luggage was lost, which was more than unpleasant as it was winter time. Then I got ill and had to stay in my hotel room while others were celebrating the New Year and setting off fireworks right in front of my window.

Speaker 4

If someone asked me about my idea of a good holiday, I’d tell them about our camping trip last summer. We escaped from the city for a week and were living in tents on the river bank. Being a city dweller, I’d never thought that stars could be so large and mysterious in the dark sky. But the best thing was long conversations and playing the guitar near the fire. We were talking about friendship, love and our hopes and dreams. I’m absolutely sure that no luxurious resort or expensive hotel at the seaside could ever compare with our holiday on the river.

Speaker 5

Like lots of school students every year I look forward to summer holidays. However, when the holiday time comes, I feel a bit disappointed as there’s nothing very exciting for me to do. I hope that one day I could go to a far-away exotic country for my holiday. No, I don’t want to go there as an idle tourist and spend hours on the beach! I would like to take part in some important and exciting activity there, say, archeological digging or wild life watching or new lands exploration. I think the ideal holiday means that you can see and learn something new and do something useful.

Now we are ready to start.

 

Tina:

There’re only two days left before Miranda’s birthday but we haven’t decided on anything about the present yet. I’m absolutely blank. I don’t have any ideas, do you?

Andrew:

I don’t either. It’s difficult to choose a present for a girl. We can probably give her a large birthday cake. All girls like cakes and sweets. How do you feel about it?

Tina:

Don’t be silly. She’s on a diet and is trying to cut off on sweet things. She wants to lose weight and doesn’t eat sweets, biscuits and cakes at all. She’ll never appreciate this kind of a present.

Andrew:

OK, a book can make a good present.

Tina:

No, it’s boring. And we don’t know what reading she enjoys.

Andrew:

But I know. She likes historical novels and she likes adventure books very much. She reads them a lot and I’ve seen lots of books in her room. She says that books are better than computer games or films. It sounds strange to me, but she really said that.

Tina:

Anyway. Even if she enjoys reading, a book will not do. I want to give her something really original, a surprise she’ll remember for years.

Andrew:

Then I know what we can do. Miranda has always wanted to have a dog, but her parents have always been against it. They probably think that it’s very difficult to keep a dog in a flat or they may be afraid of dogs.

Tina:

That’s right. She told me that she’d asked them to buy her a puppy, but they refused. They didn’t explain why. But why did you mention that? Do you mean that we can give Miranda a puppy?

Andrew:

Exactly. It will be a great surprise, it will be very original, and she’ll never forget it.

Tina:

But her parents? Do you think they’ll change their mind?

Andrew:

I don’t know. But as far as this is a present, they’ll have to accept it.

Tina:

No, I don’t think that we can do it. Keeping a dog is a great responsibility. We can’t just bring it in Miranda’s flat. We need to discuss it with her and her parents first. Let’s leave it for the future and find some less exotic present for this birthday.

ЧАСТЬ 2

B2.

Прочитайте информацию для студентов, только что приехавших в летнюю школу. Установите соответствие между заголовками A–F и пронумерованными абзацами текста 1–5. Запишите свои ответы в таблицу. Используйте каждую букву только один раз. В задании есть один лишний заголовок.

 

A) How to learn about Backpackers?

B) For whom are Backpackers?

C) Who stays at Backpackers?

D) What facilities can Backpackers provide?

E) How much is to stay in Backpackers?

F) What is there in a Backpackers room?

 

1. Backpackers hotels or just Backpackers are extremely popular in Australia. They are the same as Youth Hostels in Britain, but have a different name. The name comes from the word “backpack” – an Australian equivalent for “rucksack”. Backpackers are places where travellers can stay for a night or for a longer time. The name “backpackers” suggests that if people travel on their own with backpacks, they don’t normally care for luxury and services an expensive hotel can provide. So, the place is designed for people to stay cheaply and safely while their travelling round the country or probably taking some educational courses.

2. Though people who stay at Backpackers are not very particular about the range of services and the equipment of the room, Backpackers normally meet all reasonable requirements. Three or four people can normally stay in one room. The room is furnished with beds, clean and fresh linen, bedcovers and towels are provided. Often one can see bunk beds there. This is quite convenient and saves room. There is also a desk, a couple of chairs, a mirror and a wardrobe in the room. Some rooms have en suite showers, but sometimes toilets and showers are provided on a communal basis.

3. These types of hotels appeared in the beginning of the twentieth century, they were used primarily by students as they needed cheap places to stay. Now there are thousands of them all over the world and people of different ages and different statuses enjoy staying there. There are retired people, groups of tourists on their own, families with and without kids and certainly students. They come from different countries and represent different cultures but everyone who likes nature and wants to explore the world is welcome in this friendly and easy-going community.

4. Usually there is a kitchen with the most essential kitchen appliances and equipment such as dishes, a refrigerator, a microwave and a coffee maker. So, visitors can prepare their own food or eat in a cafe. Backpackers’ cafes can offer simple but tasty dishes for very reasonable price. There is usually a TV in the hall, books and newspapers the visitors can borrow and the Internet facilities. There is also a laundry room with several washing machines, where one can get their clothes washed very cheaply.
5. Information about Backpackers is available in tourist agencies and International centers, in all kinds of tourists booklets and guides, and certainly in the Internet. As prices and facilities in different Backpackers may vary, it’s usually a good idea to call beforehand and ask about the things which are important for you. In high season the prior contact is very advisable. Backpackers can simply be full as they are getting more and more popular with people of different ages and nationalities.

Once upon a time there was an old man who dearly loved his only son. His son enjoyed riding horses and swimming in the swift waters of mountain rivers, but most of all he liked hunting. The old man was proud that his son was full of courage but he was afraid of his passion for hunting. Once in a dream he saw that his son would be killed by a huge lion. The poor father was afraid that this dream would come true and decided to save his only son. The man built a nice big house for his son and set in a high place where he could keep his eye on him. The father didn’t allow the young man to leave the house. In order to please and entertain his son, the old man put paintings of every kind of animal in one of the rooms. There was a buffalo, a wolf, an elephant, a rhino and deers in the pictures. Among them there was a lion. But looking at all the animals did not distract the young man from his boredom.
One day, he approached the painting and spoke angrily to the lion in it: “You damned beast, it’s because of you and my father’s lying dream that I am kept here in this prison. I can’t do what I want. I can neither climb the mountains nor hunt in the forest. It’s your fault. What can I do to you?” And as he said this, he struck his fist against the wall to blind the lion. But a small sharp piece of wood got under his fingernail and the young man could not get it out. The old man called for a doctor but the doctor wasn’t able to help his son. The finger became red and hurt unbearably, it increased to an enormous size. Soon the young man died of the fierce fever. The lion, even though it was only a painted one, had indeed killed the young man, just as his father had foreseen.
