Lee:      Hi, Ellie.

Ellie:     Hi, Lee. How are you?

Lee:      Good. Hey there. Brandon. He's so cute. And you're such a good mother.

Ellie:   Thanks. Everyone says. "It's not always easy with your first child." You know, I agree with them.

Lee:      How old is he now?

Ellie:    He just turned two a month ago.

Lee:     Oh, no… The "terrible twos." Right?

Ellie:    Yep. It s so exhausting… for both of us!

Lee:     Does he throw things around? And cry a lot more?

Ellie:    Yes, exactly. Sometimes he hits me. I don't know. He was so well-behaved before.

Lee:     It happens to most babies. They turn two and their personality changes.

Ellie:   It sounds like you have some experience with "the terrible twos."

Lee:     I certainly do. My children are five and eleven now. but I still remember when they were young.

Ellie:    What can I do?

Lee:     Well, remember that it will pass… it won't last forever. Try to be patient.

Peter:     Well, first, I'm going to take a trip.

Sam:      Really? Where?

Peter:     I'm going to visit my cousins in England.

Sam:     Sounds like fun!

Peter:    Yeah, and I'm planning to rent a car so I can get around.

Sam:     That sounds great. Just be careful. They drive on the opposite side of the road there.

 

Track 3-3-4

E. Liscen to one person talking about his childhood and another talking about his future plans. Pay attention to the expressions they use.

1. When I was a child my family and I moved to a new town where I had to make new friends and assimilate to a new environment.

2.  I plan to retire in my old age, like about 70, maybe somewhere in Europe. But before that…  like as early as maybe about 50 years old, I'd like to put up my own restaurant and… um… see how that goes.

 

Track 3-3-5

B. Listen to the passage "Coping with life's stressors." Then compare the information in the passage with your answers in A.

Coping with life's stressors

by Dr. Judy Palmer

     Let's face it: Life is stressful. Stressful events in our lives are called "stressors." Some of them are minor, such as uncomfortable air conditioning or a loudly ringing telephone. Others are more serious. Such as the death of a spouse. That event tops the list as life's most stressful event.

  You might be surprised to learn about the top 20 life stressors. Getting a divorce, for example, is number 2 on the list. And not all stressors are unhappy events. Pregnancy is a happy time for most families. It may also cause stress. Pregnancy is right below retirement on the list of life's major stressors.

  We can’t avoid stress, but we can do something about it. Listen to three people talking about their responses to stress in their lives.

   Tina Vega, 16

    Last year was horrible! My family moved to another town. I had to change schools and say good-bye to all my friends. It was really tough. I felt so lonely in my new school. But then one day I decided to enjoy my life: I smiled at everyone and I joined the soccer club at school. Now I have new friends. I like my new school.

  Frederick Cho,42

  Life is unpredictable. Three weeks ago I lost my job. I was upset for the first week. I couldn't do anything. Now I'm looking for a new job. It's not good to sit around the house, I exercise every day and I'm healthier than I've been in years.

   Hazel Greene, 80

    My husband and I got married in 1950. He died five years ago. For the first two years I was depressed. I missed him so much because we did everything together. But now I'm feeling better. I think it's important to stay active and positive. I read a lot and do volunteer work.

 

Track 3-3-6

C.  Listen again. Draw lines to complete each person's story.

 

Unit 3, Lesson B

Global Viewpoints

Turning points

Kevin:    When I was a child my family and I moved to a new town where I had to make new friends and assimilate to a new environment.

Miyuki:     I came to the United States when I was eight---- that was a big event in my life. I had a very difficult time getting accustomed to being here and… um… but within three, four years I had learned English and I just started speaking and I adjusted.

Alejandra:   When I was a teenager I went to this… um… camp in Brazil. At the camp there were thirty-three people from different countries. And this was a turning point in my life because it helped me learn about different cultures and that has helped me in what I do today and that is             work as an international student advisor.

 

In the future--

Dennis:  I plan to retire in my old age, like about 70, maybe somewhere in Europe. But before that…  like as early as maybe about 50 years old, I'd like to put up my own restaurant and… um… see how that goes.

Miyuki:  I don't plan on getting married for a very long time, maybe 29…30? I can't even think about having kids yet.

Jennifer:  I may get married in the future. I'd like to have kids someday, but I don t know…  we'll see.

VIartin:  In my lifetime one of the things that I would like to see is the end of wars. I'd like to see men at peace with each other.

 

City Living

Go with the flow

Claudia:   So, when do you start your new job?

Roberto:  I'm not sure. I may start as soon as next month.

Claudia:   WOW!

Roberto:   Yeah, it's going to be a lot of fun... except I'll have to learn how to use that new software program I told you about.

Claudia:  Don't worry. I'm a software expert, I'll help you figure it out.

Roberto:  Thanks. Hey, what about your job? Your boss was transferred to the Asian office. Are you going to get promoted?

Claudia:    I might… I might not. It's not a big deal.

Roberto:    Huh?

Claudia:    I've been thinking lately, I don't plan on working my whole life. Someday, maybe in five years or so, I'm going to quit my job and get out of this stressful life. You know, relax. Have some fun!

Roberto:  Oh. What are you planning to do?

Claudia: I'm definitely going to travel… I might even move to another country, maybe work as a volunteer---- I could even start a new career! Maybe one where I can help people…  or help the world. What about you? What are your plans?

Roberto: Well, I've pretty much got everything planned already, right up to my retirement.

Claudia: Really?

Roberto: Yep. I'm going to work hard and save as much money as possible until I'm about 30…31. Then I'm going to become the Vice President of Finance, and then the CEO by the time I'm 40… may be 45.

Claudia: Yeah?

Roberto: Yep. And when I'm 35 or 36, I'm going to settle down, get married, and have some kids.

Claudia: Oh you are, are you? You know that for a fact?

Roberto: Well, it's not a fact---- yet. But really, if you want to succeed, you need to have clear-cut, well-defined goals and aspirations.

Claudia: I don't know, I think you should keep your options open. You know…  "go with the flow."

Roberto: "Go with the flow," eh? So you're not nervous about the promotion?

Claudia: I didn't say that. It just won't be the end of the world if I don't get it. What about you? Are you nervous about the new job?

Roberto:  Not really. I'm just going to "go with the flow," as long as the "flow" follows my plan!
