Mobile phones: here to stay

Most people today cannot imagine their life without a mobile phone. I believe it is one of the most important

innovations ever. Thanks to mobile phones, our lives are much easier today.

First of all, if you have a mobile phone you can make phone calls no matter where you are. For example, you

can call a friend to let them know that you lost your way or are going to be late. As a result, you feel safer and

less stressed.

In addition, we can use mobile phones to send text messages. We can write messages to friends giving them news

or sending them birthday wishes. We can even listen to the radio while travelling on a bus or the metro.

However, some people would argue that it has a negative effect on our life. If we use mobile phones all the

time, it is bad for our health.

In my opinion, mobile phones have more advantages than disadvantages if we use them correctly. Our lives

are better with them and they are here to stay.

1. Most people nowadays _______.

A cannot live without mobile phones.

B imagine life without mobile phones.

C live without mobile phones.

2. Thanks to mobile phones, our lives have become _______.

A simpler.

B more exciting.

C more complicated.

3. One of the advantages of mobile phones is that _______.

A they play music.

B they are cheap.

C they let us call people wherever we are.

4. Mobile phones are also used to _______.

A send wishes.

B send letters.

C send bills.

5. The main disadvantage of mobile phones is that _______.

A they are expensive.

B they are bad for our health.

C they create stress.

2) Read the article and choose A, B, or C to complete the gaps.

1. The symbol of England is a red rose, and English people are crazy about gardening. Everywhere in England you will see gardens, large and small. The English are also famous for their love of animals. A lot of families have pets, especially cats and dogs.

2. English football is famous of course, but there is another national sport too - cricket. Many English people love cricket, but it is not so popular in Wales, Scotland or Ireland. Some cricket matches continue for five days, and often there isn't even a winner!

3. In the south of England you will find some beautiful villages. Some of the houses and cottages have thatched roofs. 'Thatcher' is an English surname. Many English surnames are the names of jobs, for example Butcher, Baker, Wheeler, Farmer, and Potter.

4. The two oldest and most famous universities in England are in Oxford and Cambridge. If you visit these cities, you will see amazing old buildings, beautiful gardens, rivers - and punts. Punts are longboats. You have to stand up at one end of the punt, put a pole in the water and push. It's very difficult!

5. Some of the wildest and most beautiful country side in England is in the north. It is very popular with walkers, campers and climbers. If you go to the northeast, near Newcastle, you will be able to see Hadrian's Wall. Roman soldiers built it two thousand years ago. You can still walk along parts of it -just like the Roman soldiers did.

LISTENING / TAPESCRIPT

I. Listening.

Kelly: Well, I`m from a small town on the coast in Australia. It`s not far from Sydney. I`m an ambulance driver and I often work nights. I suppose my job can be quite stressful and dangerous, too, especially when there`s an emergency. To relax I like doing energetic things. I often go diving – we`ve got some great places for that in Australia, you know. And I love going climbing in the mountains. I`d love to go to the Himalayas one day. Ah one more thing … I go jogging a lot. Nearly every day. I go to the beach near my house, it`s a great place for jogging.

Matt: Er, I live right in the middle of London. I`m at London University, studying information technology. I don`t have many classes because I`m in my last year but I study a lot. In my free time … well, I like watching TV, or surfing the Net. I`ve got friends all over the world and we chat. I play chess on the Net, too. I also like, er, going to football matches and I collect the tickets – I`ve got a big collection, including some important …
