⦿ Chapter 1 In the Dressing Room
⦿ Sir Anthony Evans plays Liszt. The words above the door of
the theatre were a meter high. On the wall there was a
big picture of Sir Anthoy at the piano. Hundreds of people
were waiting outside the ticket office. It was Sir Athony’s
eightieth birthday concert and everybody wanted a ticket.
I had a special ticket, because I was a newspaper reporter.
I wanted to talk to the famous pianist before his concert. I
showed my ticket to the doorman and went into the
theatre. Then I walked upstairs to the dressing-rooms.

⦿ American English
⦿ Nearly 265 million people live in the USA and speak English. There
are more native speakers of English there than any other country.
⦿ American English is very flexible and has absorbed many words
from the languages of immigrants. Words like liaison and
rendezvous, and rodeo and tornado came into the language
because France and Spain once controlled parts of North America.
Dutch and German gave words such as waffle and cookies, and
hamburger and noodles to American English.
⦿ The first English speaker to arrive met Native Americans who
spoke many different languages. To trade with them, the
Europeans learned words from the local languages, and some of
these words become parts of American English. Native Americans
also worked as guides, leading the European trappers around the
country. The Europeans learned the Native American names for the
places they were passing through. Over half the states now have
Native American names.
