Unit 2, Lesson A

Track 3-2-1

A.  Carson and Jenna are looking for a vacation rental home. Listen.  Circle the one they choose.

Jenna:    OK, I think we have two choices. The first place is a little house. It's located in a fruit orchard.

Carson: Really?

Jenna:    Yeah. And you can eat as much fruit as you want.. When it's in season, of course. Oh---but wait. It says there's no air conditioner.

Carson:   That's OK. It's on the rainy side of the island. It's cooler there. We can use a fan.

Jenna: You're probably right…  Say. It looks pretty basic. No washing machine or dryer--  not even a TV!

Carson:  Oh no! What are we going to do without a TV? That's terrible!

Jenna:    Very funny. I'm just letting you know about the place.

Carson:  I know. What's our second choice?

Jenna:  It's on the opposite side----the sunny side----of the island. Very fancy place with a big swimming pool. It’s only three blocks from the ocean.

Carson:   Who needs a swimming pool? I mean, it's only three blocks.

Jenna:    I see your point. Well, the pool area also has barbecue grills, beautiful gardens…

Carson:  You like the second place better, I can tell.

Jenna:    Well, it does have everything. Washing machine, dryer, TV, VCR, frying pan…

Carson:  All we need is a toothbrush and a swimsuit…  Let's go with the second choice.

Jenna:    OK. I'll call them right now and reserve it. I can’t wait to go!

 

Track 3-2-2

B.  Listen again. Write 1 if the sentence describes the first place. Write 2 if it describes the second place.

 

Track 3-2-3

C.   Andy is thinking about buying a house. Marcus is showing him the house. Listen and underline the words used to describe the house.

Marcus:  This is the living room.

Andy:    lt s nice and roomy.

Marcus:   Yes. There's a lot of room. It's a two-bedroom house. One bedroom is upstairs.

Andy:     I see. What s that building?

Marcus:   That's a shed. It's used for storing tools.

Andy:      Great. I like to garden. I need a place for my tools.

Marcus:  That's good. Shall we go outside and look at the backyard?

Andy:   OK!

 

Track 3-2-4

D. Listen to two people describing their dream home. Pay attention to the expressions used for describing a house.

 1.   I want my dream house to be by a lake with a big yard. I want to have three bedrooms, and a big living room… family room…kitchen area so I can have parties and exeryone can be together.

2.  If I could have anything in my dream house I would like to have a high-tech stove.

 

Track 3-2-5

B. Listen to the passage "Creating spaces." Then read these statements about Fredrick Law Olmsted and his projects. Write T for true or F for false.

Creating spaces

    Jin Hee Park is a student at Stanford University in Califomia. She studies hard, "Of course, I came here for the academics, she says. " But it doesn't hurt that the campus is so beautiful. I walk around sometimes just to relax."

  Alejandro Vega, a banker in New York City jogs almost every evening after work in Central Park. " I never get bored. The park is so big. I can always find a different path with a new view."

  Niagara Falls was on Ross Howard's list of places to visit in upstate New York. "The footpaths allow you to get a wonderful view. You can even feel the spray from the falls on your face."

     What do these three places-- - - Stanford University, Central Park, and Niagara Falls State Park- - --all have in common? They were all landscaped by Frederick Law Olmsted. Olmsted (1822-1903) has been called the "father of landscape architecture."

  In the 1800s, more and more people were moving to the cities. Some community leaders became worried about the quality of life. They began a beautification campaign.

  In 1857, a design contest was held for a new park in New York City. Olmsted and his partner, Cavert Vaux, won the contest. Central Park was the finished product---- the first landscaped public park in the United States. Today, no trip to New York is complete without a visit to this beautiful park.

   Later in his life, Olmsted designed landscapes for college campuses, including Stanford University. In the late 1860s, he joined the "Free Niagara" movement. Members of the movement wanted to preserve the beauty of Niagara Falls. Despite opposition and pressures from business to industrialize the area. Olmsted and others resisted. Olmsted designed footpaths to give visitors better views of the falls. In all his work, Olmsted preferred to preserve the natural beauty of an area.

   Today, there are pressures again to develop Niagara. On Goat Island, an island in Niagara Falls State Park, there are now souvenir shops. There may be signs that say "No Littering," but there is still a lot of trash on the island. Most of the animals have disappeared. What would Frederick Law Olmsted say to all this?

 

Track 3-2-6

C,  Listen again. Find words in the passage that are related in form to the ones below.

 

Unit2, Lesson B

Global Viewpoints

My dream home

Jennifer:    I want my dream house to be by a lake with a big yard. I want to have three bedrooms, and a big living room… family room… kitchen area so I can have parties and everyone can be together.

Calum:     I'd like to have a big swimming pool and a large garden so I could eat outside.

Dennis:      If I could have anything in my dream house I would like to have a high-tech stove.

VIartin:     Of course a 52-inch plasma TV vould be nice.

Alejandra:  I would love to have a veranda… a wide veranda… where I can sit during the evenings and read books and watch the sun set.

 

Rules

Gian:  At my work I'm not allowed to smoke. Anyone who smokes needs to go outside.

Martin:  I work for the phone company and we're not allowed to give out personal information about our customers.

Jennifer:    We are not allowed to use our cell phones and we can't eat at our desks.

Dennis:     In my house you can't smoke. And… um… as much as possible, you have to take your shoes off at the door.

Nick:  I'm not allowed to make noise at night when my roommates are sleeping.

Calum:  Well, there are actually too many rules in my dormitory, so I'm not allowed to do a lot of things. For instance, I'm not allowed to play music that's too loud so that it might disturb other people. I'm not allowed to smoke inside. I'm not allowed to have alcohol in the rooms…

 

City Living

Imaginary Beach

Takeshi:    I can't believe how hot it is out there. Why didn't we go to Hawaii with everyone else?

Mike:     Because we didn't have the money.

Takeshi:  Well, why didn t we get an air conditioner?

Mike:    Hello? Same reason. And quit complaining! We've got air conditioning.

Takeshi:   Mike, that's a bowl of ice and a fan.

Mike:      Takeshi, you've got to be more like me and use your imagination, then you too can have a beach vacation. See? (pulls down window shade with beach poster) Check out that gorgeous view.

Takeshi:  Right, but not exactly "realistic."

Mike:       OK, come over here. Close your eyes. Feel that cool, ocean breeze.

Takeshi:  Mike, that's the fridge.

Mike:    Come on! I said, "Use your imagination!" Now close your eyes. Listen to the sound of the seagulls…  (makes sound like a seagull) hear the children laughing…  (makes sound like children laughing) Why, I think I can even smell a barbeque… (waves a package of hot dogs)

Takeshi:  Raw hot dogs?

Mike:      Don't worry. I'm going to cook them up on that grill over there.

Takeshi:   Mike, you know you're not allowed to use a grill inside an apartment, right?

Mike:       OK. I'll use the microwave then.

Takeshi:  A beach, with a microwave. Sure, Mike.

Mike:     That's the beauty of "Imaginary Beach." We've got a microwave oven, we've got a TV with a remote control. Who could ask for anything more?

Takeshi:  What about water? That's the main reason people go to the beach. What are you going to use for that? The bathtub?

Mike:  No. that'd be silly. Here we go! (turns on CD player) Feel the ocean mist… (sprays water on Takeshi)

Takeshi:  Mike, that's for spraying plants, not me!

Mike:  You know, the sound of the waves, the ocean mist…  makes me want to surf.

Takeshi:  Surf?

Mike:   Yeah, surf. (starts to fold up ironing board)

Takeshi:  Mike, no. you can t stand on that, you'll break it!

Mike: No, I won't. (stands on ironing board and pretends to surf) Look at me, dude---- I'm "hangin' ten"!

Takeshi: Yeah, cool. (takes cap off water bottle) Hey, "dude"! Watch out for that wave! (throws water in Mike's face) Huh, I'm getting the hang of this "imagination" thing.

Mike:  Very funny, very funny indeed! (chases Takeshi)
