Barn isn’t surprised by the teenagers. People often stop him on the street and want to take his picture. Barn is a hairdresser, but the also makes money as a Beckham double. Barn travels all over Europe as David Beckham. Newspapers often take his photo. It’s an exciting life for the hairdresser from Manchester.

Today, many companies work with celebrity doubles. The most popular celebrity doubles look like famous athletes, pop singers, and actors. The companies pay doubles to go to parties and business meetings. Doubles are also on TV and in newspaper ads.

Thailand is a nice country in Southeast Asia, with something for every visitor. There is a lot for you to discover there. But before you go, you should make a plan to help you be better prepared. Here are some tips.

Firstly, the weather in Thailand is hot and humid all year, so you should pack sunglasses, T-shirts, and sandals with you. Secondly, you should buy your plane ticket early. Thailand is a very popular place for a vacation, and the planes are very full. Thirdly, the traffic in this country is very bad and people drive really fast, so you should rent a car. Another tip is that you should drink a lot of water and juice to stay cool. Finally, and this is a very important tip, you shouldn’t take photos outside in afternoon. It’s too sunny and bright! Remember these tips and you’ll have a great time there. Have fun in Thailand!

Most people plan their vacations very carefully. They think a lot about plane tickets, passports, and hotel reservations. But they often forget about one important thing –the weather. You should learn about the right time to visit your vacation spot. Here is some information to help you plan your next vacation.

Italy. The weather is sunny all year, but it’s sometimes cold in winter. April and May are warm and beautiful. From June to September, it’s very hot.

Australia. Summer here is from December to April. It sometimes rains, but the weather is usually very good. In winter, it snows a little in some places, but most of Australia isn’t very cold.

Track 1-2-OL-7

A.    Study the pictures of these items. Then listen to the passage. How are these five things related to each other?

In Tokyo, it’s an envelope with $850,000 in cash. At Florida’s Disney World, it’s a glass eye. At a hotel in England, it’s a goat and a false leg. How are all of these things similar? They are unusual things that people leave in hotel rooms, in airports, and on city streets. Irish Martino works in the Lost and Found Center at an airport in a U.S. city. “Sure, we find the usual stuff—cell phones, keys, sunglasses and wallets,” she says. “But people also forget some weird things at the airport, too.” What does Ms. Martino find? A woman’s false teeth in the bathroom. A mannequin in an airport waiting area. “How do you forget those things?” Martino wonders. Nobuo Hasuda works for the Lost and Found Center in downtown Tokyo. The Center has almost 800,000 items. Three hundred thousand of them are umbrellas! There are also many other things—jewelry and briefcases, snowshoes and musical instruments. Mr. Hasuda keeps the lost items for six months and two weeks. After this time, the finder can take the item. This is good luck for some people. Remember the envelope in Tokyo with $850,000? The owner did not claim it. Now the money belongs to the finder!

I’m Don Pierce. A good actor works very, very hard. People think that actors spend their time at a lot of parties and nightclubs, but that isn’t true. Actors spend hours--many hours-- studying their lines for each movie. And you really have to understand people so that you can understand your character in the movie.

I’m Janice. I think the most important thing for a good doctor is being a good listener. You have to understand people and their problems. A good doctor likes to solve problems and always wants to help his or her patients. And you can’t be impulsive--you should always be careful. Sometimes the first answer you think of isn’t the right answer. Doctors need a lot of energy, because they are usually hardworking.

He, I’m Daniel. To be a success in business, you have to work well with groups of people. At the same time, you need to have strong opinions and be able to explain your opinions clearly. Good business-people always like to make new things and try new ideas. They are very organized, and they work very long hours.

And they are very serious about their sport-- it it’s the most important thing in their life!

 

Track 1-3-OL-8

A.                 Now listen to the passage about four personality typesThe Dreamer, The Partner, The Thinker, and The Artist. Which personality type best describes you?

The Dreamer

A dreamer thinks there is a “right” way to do things. This person wants to live in the “perfect world.” A Dreamer is often hardworking and organized. Many are good listeners and like to help others. Many Dreamers work as teachers, lawyers, and in leadership roles.

The Partner

A Partner wants to be in a group. For this person, rules and group harmony are important. These rules keep peace in the group. Partners are often serious, careful people. Many do well as teachers, managers, police officers, and politicians.

Complete the sentences.

If you want to become a successful businessperson, you should do three things. First, you should think about your goals every day. Make plans for today, tomorrow, and next year. Second, you should join a business club. You can learn a lot from the other members, and they can give you good advice. Third, you shouldn’t work every night and every weekend. Sometimes you should take a break. You get more energy and ideas when you relax. And you need a lot of energy and ideas to make money!

 

Track 1-4-OL-4

A.                Listen to a talk about realizing dreams.

Find your dream

We all have dreams, but some people actually make their dreams come true. Their secret? They quit dreaming. And they start doing. Even a very big dream starts with small steps, and small goals. Maybe your dream is to become a doctor. Start by thinking about small goals for yourself. Ask, “What can I do today?” You can’t start medical school today, but you can send e-mails and make phone calls to get information about medical schools. Make a list of schools to call, and then call a few of them every day. What do you need for your dream? Tell friends and family members -- many of them can help you. For example, you want to become an artist. You need a lot of cheap paper for drawing. Maybe your friend’s brother throws away a lot of big paper at his office. So, share your dream with the world! Another good idea is talking to people who are doing your dream job. Do you dream about having your own restaurant? Go to your favorite restaurant and ask the owner lots of questions. Most people like to talk about their work.

A lifetime dream

Everyone has his or her own dream jobs. Let’s listen to Yi Wang, a 29-year-old young teacher, and Hicham Nassir, who are going to talk about their dream jobs.

“At the moment, I’m teaching chemistry at a university in Beijing. It’s a good job, but my dream is to make films. In China, young artists move to Beijing from all over the country. Many of them are painters, writers, and actors. I’d like to make a film about their lives and their work.” Wang is writing the film now with help from her friends, but it isn’t easy. “At the moment, the biggest problem is money,” explains Wang. “We don’t have much.” But this isn’t going to stop Wang and her partners. She says, “First, we’re going to make this movie. Then, we’d like to show it in China and, maybe someday, at film festivals around the world.”

16-year-old Hicham Nassir is a soccer player. He’s getting ready for a soccer match with his teammates. Hicham, the team’s star player, is a native of Morocco. He now lives in London with his family. “My parents want me to go to college, and major in business or law,” he explains. “They want me to become a lawyer or a successful businessman. I understand them, but I want to be a pro soccer player. And my coach thinks I can do it.” And what about his parents? “I hope they change their minds,” says Hicham. “I want to play soccer professionally. It’s my dream.”

Singapore is a great city for a vacation. There are a lot of interesting things to see. You can visit Chinatown and Little lndia, and go shopping on Orchard Road. Singapore also has many good restaurants. There are some great beaches for swimming near the city, and the parks are really beautiful. The city has very good public transportation - - you can take a bus, train, or subway. It’s a safe city, and there isn’t much crime. It’s also a clean city. There isn’t much pollution. The only problem is that Singapore is expensive. The population of Singapore is approximately 4.84 million. With a medley of Chinese, Indian and Malay influences and a tropical climate, tasty food, good shopping and a vibrant nightlife scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.

 

Track 1-5-OL-4

Track 1-5-OL-5

Now listen to a passage about cities to go to for vacation.

Choosing a city

Istanbul is a very unusual city – one part is in Europe, and the other part is in Asia. About 9 million people live there. Visitors love Istanbul because it has many beautiful, old buildings, and the food is great. At night, the seafood restaurants are very popular. And everything in Istanbul is very affordable for visitors. Traffic is a problem in the city, because there are too many cars for the old streets. There are also subways, trains, and buses, and some people take boats to go between the European side and the Asian side. The weather is very good in summer, but in winter it’s sometimes very cold.

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It’s near the mountains and the sea, and there are many great parks where you can walk, ride a bicycle, or just relax. The city has good public transportation, with buses and fast trains that go everywhere. There are about 600,000 people in Vancouver, but it’s a very clean city, and there’s not much pollution. Two bad points—prices there are very high, and the weather is not very good. Vancouver is famous for rain! But there are many good museums for those rainy days, and in the evening, the city has great restaurants and nightclubs to visit.

 

Track 1-5-OL-6

Listen again. Complete the chart with information about the cities.

 

Track 1-5-Ol-7

Now listen to a talk about the Best Cites to Live in. Read the sentences. Which city does each sentence describe? Sometimes both cities are possible.

Two magazines recently listed the best cities to live in. Here are two of the cities listed as “the world’s best.” San Jose, Costa Rica. When people think of Costa Rica, they imagine rain forests, rivers, and beautiful beaches. These things are not in San Jose. But this city is still one of the world’s best. Why? Unlike other cities in Central and South America, San Jose has comfortable weather all year (15/60 to 26/79). Housing is affordable in San Jose. Also, many of the city’s older neighborhoods are very beautiful and have small hotels, art galleries and cafes. Beautiful volcanoes and mountains surround the city. You can visit them easily from San Jose. Minuses: there’s good public transportation, but traffic and air pollution are a problem in the city center.

Hong Kong, China. Why live in Hong Kong? Here are two good reasons. The city: this lively city -–once a small fishing village—is today an international business center. It is an interesting mix of East and West, old and new. Modern skyscrapers are next to small temples. Popular nightclubs are close to traditional teahouses. Busy crowds fill the streets at all hours of the day. But outside the city, there are parks for walking or relaxing. The food: Hong Kong is famous for its wonderful native dishes (try the dim sum). There’s also food from Europe, North America, and other parts of Asia. Minuses: This small city has a large population. How many people live in Hong Kong? Almost seven million! That’s why housing is often very expensive. Traffic and air pollution are also a problem.

 

Track 1-5-OL-8

Listen again. Do you want to live in Hong Kong or San Jose? Why or why not? What is important to you in a place to live? Put these items in order from 1(very important) to 4 (not so important). Explain your reasons.

In my neighborhood

Natalie: In my neighborhood there is a pizza shop. Right next door to the pizza shop is a clothing store and across the street from the clothing store is a pharmacy.

Daniel: In my hometown I live across from the supermarket, there’s a post office down the road, there’s a bank, and I live very close to the train station.

Kevin: I live in a college town so my neighborhood has a lot of laundromats and pizza and Chinese restaurants.

Agnes: We have a bakery and a post office on the main street with a lot of little shops where you can find things for the kitchen and a lot of restaurants, too. To get to my favorite restaurant, you just have to go down my street, and take your first right. Go a couple of blocks, and then take your first left. And the restaurant is on your left on that street.

Cities and towns

Gian: I am from a small town in the state of North Dakota. My town has very little crime, almost no pollution, and the cost of living is very low.

Miyuki: Tokyo is a very expensive city. Food’s very expensive. Transportation cost is probably one of the biggest problems. But the subway systems are extremely organized, so it’s not that difficult to get around.

Dave: Mexico City is a big, scary city with a lot of people and a lot of pollution. And it can be very intimidating, but I love it.

Dayanne: The cost of living in Sao Paulo is very high, but I love it. I would like to live in the countryside where it is quiet with not too many people and the cost of living is not so high.
