    Listening Comprehension to Lesson 1

    «Why Does It Rain on the Road?"

    A small boy called Tom and his father were having a walk in the

    country. The sun was shining brightly in the cloudless sky. The day was nice and calm, as the weather forecast said “dry and warm in the morning with possible showers in the afternoon”. But we all know that weathermen sometimes make mistakes and it is a fact that weather in Europe has become really changeable. So, though Tom and his father didn’t expect any rainstorm it suddenly began to rain very hard. The father and the son did not have their umbrellas with them, and there was nowhere to hide from the rain. Soon they were very wet, and the small boy did not feel happy.

    For a long time while they were walking home through the rain, the boy was thinking. Then at last Tom turned to his father and asked, “Why does it rain, Father? It isn’t very nice, is it?”

    “No, it isn’t very nice, but it’s very useful, Tom,” answered his father.

    “It rains and the fruit and vegetables grow for us and the grass grows for the cows and the sheep.”

    Tom thought about his father’s words for a few seconds, and then he said, “Then, why does it rain on the road, Father?”

    1.  Answer the following questions:

    1. Where were the father and son walking?
    2. What has become changeable?

    5. Why is the rain useful?

    4. But we all know that scientists sometimes make mistakes.
    5. The weather in Europe has become really windy.

    7. Soon they were very tired, and the small boy did not feel happy.

    Listening Comprehension to Lesson 2  

    “How Climate Can Influence Meals” (#12)

    In southern countries, where there is a lot of sunlight and it is usually hot, many people like eating their meals in the fresh air. In these areas

    people often eat under trees or big umbrellas during the day because the heat is generally very strong. While in the evening they eat under the moon and stars which produces a romantic effect on people. This, for  example, is often done in Italy. The restaurants put tables in a garden or in the street and most people eat there and not inside the restaurants.

    Renato was born in Italy and lived in a small town on the sea coast.

    When he was thirty-two, he moved to London and bought a restaurant there. At first London seemed huge, grey and unfriendly to him. But by and by he began to like this city. Though he couldn’t forget Italy and his home town.

    So, it’s not surprising that one day he put some of his tables out in the street. As you know it rains much more in England than it does in

    Italy. That’s why Renato’s idea was not really good and did not work.

    What happened to Mr Jenkins, a Londoner, one rainy afternoon, proves it. Mr Jenkins went to Renato’s restaurant and in the evening he said to his wife, “I had lunch at that new Italian restaurant today, and it rained all the time. It took me twenty-five minutes to drink my soup.”

    1. Say if the sentences are “True” or “False”:
    1. People like eating outdoors in southern countries.
    2. Eating under the moon and stars produce a romantic effect on people.
    3. Renato had a restaurant in a small town on the sea coast in Italy.
    4. At first Renato liked London.
    5. Renato put some of the tables out in the street.
    6. Renato’s idea didn’t work because of a lot of rain in Italy.
    7. Mr Jenkins’s soup had a lot of rainwater in it.

    1. Answer the following questions:
    1. Why do many people like eating their meals in the fresh air in southern countries?
    2. Where was Renato born?
    3. Why wasn’t Renato’s idea really good?

    Listening Comprehension to Lesson 3

    “Mice and Lions”

    It was a beautiful morning in early spring. The sun was shining so brightly that it was impossible to stay in. That was the reason why Tom Robinson, who was a young biology teacher, decided to take his class to London Zoo. He phoned his pupils and said that he would meet them at the zoo. He wanted to show his class some rare species of animals, especially mammals, as that was the subject they were doing at the moment. So Tom Robinson took his class directly to the cages where animals of savannas were kept. Not far from the cages there were big baskets for rubbish, where people who bought ice creams and other things could throw the papers from them. While Tom was looking at the lions and thinking of those beautiful huge creatures, he forgot about his pupils for a second.

    When he turned to them again, he was surprised to see that there was nobody near the lions’ cages. But he was even more surprised when he saw a crowd around the rubbish basket.

    He went towards the crowd. They were his class. He looked over their heads and saw a little mouse which was running about among the pieces of paper in the basket and looking for bits of food. It was only a few centimeters from the children, but it was not afraid, and the children were happy and more interested in this small, common mouse than the wonderful lions.

    Listening Comprehension to Lesson 4

    “Why Don’t We Stop Him”

    The Women’s Club had a meeting every Friday. And every Friday they invited someone to come and talk to them about important things. After that they had tea and asked questions. One Friday a gentleman came and talked to the club about different problems of ecology. He spoke about air and water pollution, acid rains and the greenhouse effect and then he mentioned the growth of population and shortage of food. “There is not enough food in the world for everybody,” he said. “More than half the people in the world are hungry. After that he spoke about cars and buses — their positive and negative effects. He said that cars bring help quickly and this is very important for the police and fire brigades and ambulances. Cars and buses do important work — they transport goods, take people to and from work. But they are dangerous, noisy, expensive and unhealthy. And there are often traffic jams. They do a lot of harm to the city atmosphere and ruin the beauty of the countryside because many new roads are built everywhere. Though the cars are very convenient and comfortable and they are much faster than trains and boats, people suffer a lot from them because nowadays people don’t have much exercise. Everybody knows that it is much healthier to walk or to ride a bicycle. But fewer people every year do that. Most of us prefer to go by car. “And there are more and more cars produced each year!” the gentleman said. “Just imagine a car producer is making a car every minute day and night somewhere in the world. How can we solve the problem?” He waited for a few seconds before he continued, but before he began to speak again, one of the club members, a young woman, had a ready answer. “Well, why don’t we find that man and stop him?”

    "How to Make Everybody Happy"

    Kevin lived in a big city and earned his living working for a large company. But Kevin didn’t like living in a city. He didn’t like the noise and the traffic and the crowds in the streets. He got so tired of the city that he decided to go away for a short while. Once he decided to visit his Uncle Ronald who lived in the country and stay with him for a few weeks. It was a very good idea because Uncle Ronald lived in a wonderful little village situated on the bank of a small river. The village consisted of several twin cottages that looked exactly the same and there was a lovely church on the top of the hill. Kevin loved it there so much that he felt sorry he didn’t know much about poetry, so that he could describe the countryside in a poem.

    Anyway, Kevin enjoyed his stay in the country. Often he and his uncle went for a walk or for a drive in the car, and Kevin was so happy that he sang at the top of his voice, and Uncle Ronald sang along. They both laughed, and Kevin never felt stupid. Once Kevin noticed a strange thing: whenever they passed somebody, his uncle waved. Kevin was surprised and said, “Uncle Ronald, you know everybody here! Where did you meet all these people?” “I don’t know all of them,” said his uncle. “Then, why do you wave to them?” asked Kevin. “Well,” answered his uncle, “when I wave to somebody and he knows me, he is pleased. But when I wave to someone and he doesn’t know me, he is surprised and he starts asking himself, ‘Who is that man? Why did he wave to me?’ So he has something to think about during the rest of his journey, and the journey seems shorter to him. So I make everybody happy.”

    "Worse Than a Small Child"

    Mr and Mrs Harris had four children. One Saturday Mrs Harris thought that it would be a good idea to take the children to a funfair in the park. At first Mr Harris didn’t want to go: he worked five days a week except Saturdays and Sundays and got very tired. But Mrs Harris and the children were very eager to go. Naturally, Mr Harris had to agree. He took out his automobile, and the family drove to the park. The territory of the park was vast and very beautiful. Mr Harris was forty-seven years old but he enjoyed the funfair more than the children. He ate a lot of sweets, nuts, apricots, peaches and ices. He went from one ride to another. Most of all he liked the roller coaster and least of all — the shooting competition. But generally he enjoyed every minute of it.

    Mrs Harris and the children looked at him in surprise and then one of the children said to her mother, “Daddy’s just like a small child, isn’t he, Mummy?” Mrs Harris was quite tired after she had followed her husband from one ride to another and she answered, “He’s worse than a small child, Mary, because he’s got his own money.”

    Answer the following questions:

    1)  How many children did Mr. and Mrs. Harris have?
    2)  When did the action take place?
    3)  Why didn’t Mr. Harris want to go?

    “He Never Told a Lie”

    Once there lived a teacher who had worked at school for very many

    years. He was an extremely good teacher but then he became old

    and retired. Now he had a lot of free time and often went for a walk

    in the park. This was the most suitable place to escape from the city

    noise.

    One day he was taking his usual walk in the park and noticed a group

    of young boys standing near the bushes. In one of the bushes there was

    a graceful small cat that resembled his own cat Pussy. The old gentleman

    came to the boys and asked what was happening. One of the boys explained

    to him, “We are having a competition. We’re telling lies, and the one who

    tells the biggest lie will keep the cat.”

    The old gentleman was just like all grown-ups: he thought it was a

    good chance to teach the boys a useful lesson, so he said to them, “This

    is quite an extraordinary competition. But you know, boys, I’ve never told

    a lie in my life.” All at once there was a great laughter from the boys,

    and they cried, “You’ve won! Now you can take the cat.”

    Listening Comprehension to Lesson 22

    " Don’t Speak Too Soon"

    Jack was a young man. He worked in an office. Every day Jack looked through a lot of mail: telegrams, telexes, periodicals and official papers. He often got tired and used to say, “Sitting on a chair for eight hours every day and then sitting at home in the evening is not very good for health.” Every summer during a holiday he went to some faraway picturesque places by train and then walked every day for five or six hours or rode a horse.

    Last spring he took a map to his stepbrother Nick and said, “Nick, you’ve been to many continents and countries. You have walked the Alps and the Rockies. I am going to America in August and I would like to walk from this place to this place on the day of my arrival.” And Jack showed Nick the places on the map. “Can I borrow your rucksack?” Jack asked.

    “You certainly can,” answered Nick. “But how can you do it in one day? The map is flat and the mountains are not.”
