Read the text and circle the best title. a Language studies in England b A different language to study c Why English people study languages Most students at school study at least one and maybe two languages apart from their own. European children tend to learn European languages and in England these languages are probably French, Spanish or German, but one student, Alex Brown, learns another language after school, and it’s not European. It’s Swahili. Alex is interested in the language because his grandparents are originally from the southern part of Africa and their first language is Swahili. So, every day when classes finish, Alex goes to his grandparents’ house for his extra class. Alex really enjoys learning from his grandfather, because he loves hearing all the old stories about his grandfather’s childhood. His grandfather obviously doesn’t ask for any money, but Alex pays for the class in another way. He looks after his grandparents’ garden. He enjoys cutting the grass and watering the plants, but the one thing he doesn’t like is collecting the fallen leaves from the trees. Alex’s dad picks him up after the class to take him home. ‘I’m very happy that my son is learning the language of my father’ he says. ‘When he is older he can go to Africa to visit his distant family and talk to them.’ 2.

I didn’t pay any attention at first because it was such an important exam that I really needed to study hard, but then I heard the sound again. It was so strange because I don’t live anywhere near a farm. I put my book down and listened but I could only hear silence. I went back to studying until lunchtime and then I went into the sitting room, where my brother was watching television. I asked him about the cow sound but he didn’t know what I was talking about. The volume on the TV was so loud that he couldn’t hear anything. I walked into the kitchen and I heard the sound again, this time much louder. I looked out of the kitchen window and to my surprise, there really was a cow in the garden and it was eating my mum’s best flowers.

The other option is to leave school and go and study at college and if I do this, my parents will be pleased but my girlfriend won’t, because the college is in another town and if I go and study there I won’t see much of her. b If I do this, my parents will be happy and so will my girlfriend because she is definitely going to continue studying here. The next option is to leave school and look for a job. If I choose this one, and if I find a job, I will have more money, which will be good. This will also make my girlfriend happy. c Obviously, the first option is the one that makes my girlfriend and my parents happy, but I think it’s the one that I personally don’t want. I need a change and if I stay at school I think I’ll be demotivated and bored. So it looks like there is no option that will please everybody: What can I do? If someone can give me some advice, I’ll be very grateful! d On the 30th of June I have to make a decision and that’s not long as now we’re in April.

Do you remember the photos of the girl, Isabel, who I met when we were on holiday in Spain? Well, now I can’t stop thinking about her. I can’t concentrate on my studies and in a German test yesterday my mind was blank and I couldn’t remember anything! I don’t know why, and I failed it! What can I do? I’m worried that I’ll fail all my exams because all that I do is think about her. If I could stop thinking about her, I’d be OK. Love, Keith Dear Keith, First of all, I think it’s great that you met such a lovely girl! She’s very beautiful in the photos you sent me. You should be glad to know her and you shouldn’t be stressed. I know you’re unhappy because she’s far away but you should be positive. She’s not in Australia! You could ask your parents for a plane ticket to Spain for your birthday. And you shouldn’t be embarrassed about it. If you explained how you felt to them, I’m sure they’d understand. And you shouldn’t worry about your exams. If you were more relaxed, I’m confident that you’d pass them. And remember that I’m very happy for you! Aunt Helen 2.

Well now I can say that I have and I don’t want to repeat the experience ever! This is what happened. I was watching television – a boring programme about famous people. It was quite depressing really. Then I heard a noise like tic, tic, tic. At first I didn’t take any notice but then it got really annoying, so I switched off the TV and tried to locate where it was coming from. However, as soon as I stood up the noise stopped. I sat down again and the tic, tic, tic started again. Then I thought it was amusing, even intriguing. Like a mystery. I’ve had strange experiences before but this was definitely one of the strangest. I stood up again. Again the sound stopped. When I sat down I saw the most shocking thing. Three white fingers under the sofa. I couldn’t stop myself screaming and in that moment the ghost came out from under the sofa and said ‘Hello!’ I ran out of the room and I haven’t returned yet. What am I going to do? a b c d e

Annie Mator to be precise, and she used to have green hair as the lead singer in a rock group called the Animators, which used to be very successful in China and Japan in the late nineties, although not in Europe. ‘It was amazing at the time.’ Annie told me. ‘We used to go out on the streets of Tokyo and have hundreds of fans asking for our autographs.’ I asked about Europe. ‘No. Nobody knew us at all in Europe, which was great because we used to get quite tired of all the attention in the Far East. We used to spend at least six months a year there, so it was nice to get back to a place where you could be anonymous.’ So what happened? Why is she now a ‘normal’ wife and mother? ‘In the end I just got tired of all the travelling. It used to be great to live that kind of lifestyle, but after three years of it I decided that it was time to lead a quieter life.

The ship, which was carrying more than 70,000 tonnes of oil, started to have problems when it was caught in a terrible storm. The strong waves broke a hole in the side of the ship and, despite attempts to avoid the disaster, a large amount of oil was released into the sea. Westerly winds blew a large amount of this oil onto the Galician beaches and rocks, destroying wildlife and one of the most beautiful parts of European coastline. Fishing also had to be completely suspended in the area, meaning many local people lost their means of earning money. After a few days floating helplessly at sea, the Prestige sank, taking to the bottom with it most of its deadly cargo, the long-term consequences of which are not yet known. Thousands of local people helped clean the more than 140 beaches affected along the ‘Coast of Death’ by removing the oil and taking affected sea birds to have the oil removed from their feathers. Only time will tell if this natural paradise will return to its previous state. 2. Read the text again and answer the questions. 1 Into how many parts did the ship break?

She also said that, after voting for the government in the last election, she definitely wouldn’t be voting for them again. b Last Saturday a demonstration marched to Parliament to protest about the government’s policies. Two large organisations were involved in the march. One was ‘Green Planet’, which was demonstrating in general about environmental problems and specifically about the new law on nuclear energy. c We also asked a member of the government for his views and he said people didn’t understand how complicated it was to solve these problems and that the government was doing everything it could to make things better. We told him about the unfortunate woman and all her problems but he said he had no comment on the matter. d The other was ‘No More Crime’, which believes that the government does not do enough to prevent crime and violence.

Then the story was sent to the publishers. The editor thought that the general idea was fantastic, although the story was a bit flawed in places, so parts of it were rewritten. When everyone had decided that it was ready to be printed, the complete work was loaded onto the publisher’s main computer. The work was 326 pages long, so 163 sheets of paper were needed, as both sides are used. These were loaded into the printer and a test was printed. When everyone was satisfied, thousands of copies were printed. Also the front and back covers were designed. An artist was employed for this job, and when they were approved by the author and the editor, these were also printed, on special, more expensive paper, and in colour. The product wasn’t advertised heavily, but copies were given to critics, whose reviews were read by many people. The product was sold in specialised shops and also in department stores, in their literary section, and because the reviews described it as ‘excellent’ and ‘superb’, nearly a hundred thousand copies were sold. 2.

Teacher’s Resource Bank ESO 4 / © Pearson Educación, S.A., 2006 PENGUIN READERS FACTSHEETS THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY BY OSCAR WILDE Teacher’s Notes > Summary Published in 1891, The Picture of Dorian Gray is Oscar Wilde’s only novel. An immediate and popular success, it has never been out of print since. The story is set in London towards the end of the 19th century. Basil Hallward has painted a portrait of a handsome young man, Dorian Gray. Thrilled by the beauty of the painting, Dorian Gray wishes that he could always stay as young as his image in the picture. He gives up his soul to achieve this wish. Dorian sets out on a life of self-indulgence and evil. His behaviour seems to be reflected in the portrait and he realises that his wish has come true – the portrait is beginning to show a corrupted man while he remains unchanged. Frightened of what is happening, Dorian hides the picture in a locked room. The years pass and Dorian leads an increasingly depraved life, but the years have no effect on him; he looks as young and beautiful as ever. Then one evening he meets the artist once more and, after he has shown him the evil-looking portrait, Dorian kills him in a fit of hatred. Dorian tries to carry on with his immoral life. But he is tormented by feelings of guilt and decides that the only way he can make up for what he has done is to destroy the painting. In the climax of the story Dorian tries to kill the man in the portrait, but kills himself in the process. > About Oscar Wilde Oscar Wilde is one of the best-known characters of British literary history. Wilde grew up in a professional middle-class family in Dublin. He was a brilliant student and went to England to study at Oxford University. He was very ambitious and wanted to join English high society. He soon became famous for his witty conversation, especially his ironic epigrams or amusing sayings. Oscar Wilde was flamboyant and eccentric from an early age. At a time when men only wore black or grey he put on colourful clothes, grew his hair long and wore a green flower in his buttonhole. He was a founder member of the influential ‘aesthetic movement’ which believed in ‘art for art’s sake’ and rejected the strict morality of Victorian society which regarded all sexual matters as ‘dirty’ and immoral. In Victorian England all men were expected to get married and have a family. Oscar married and had two children, but he secretly loved men, something which was considered disgusting and was a serious crime. Oscar kept his love affairs with men a secret and between 1892 and 1895 his plays made him the most successful and popular writer in Britain. He loved mixing with the aristocracy yet his works made fun of the English upper classes and, in a subtle way, criticised the cruel morality of his
  56. 56. Teacher’s Resource Bank ESO 4 / © Pearson Educación, S.A., 2006 time. When Oscar was found guilty of having a sexual relationship with a man, nearly all his friends dropped him, his plays and books were withdrawn and his possessions were sold to pay his creditors. He came out of prison a broken man and spent the final years of his life in poverty, unable to write and forced to live in exile. > Background and themes The Picture of Dorian Gray is often described as a melodrama, in other words a work in which everything is larger than life. It is more like a myth or a morality tale than the realistic novels which modern readers are accustomed to. It contains so much dialogue that it is almost as if it is a written version of a stage play. This is not surprising as Wilde went on to write a series of enormously successful plays in the three years following its publication, including his masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest. The theme of The Picture of Dorian Gray is a recurring one in European culture, most famously expounded in Faust. In the story of Faust, the devil tempts a man to sell his soul in exchange for all the things he desires. The result is disaster and the lesson is that a man’s soul is more valuable than anything he could possibly gain in the material world. In Oscar Wilde’s version, Lord Henry represents the devil figure and Dorian Gray is Faust. The portrait symbolises Dorian’s soul or personal morality. Lord Henry tempts Dorian to indulge in an immoral lifestyle, carelessly disregarding the feelings of the people he seduces and then rejects. Dorian thinks that he can escape from the consequences of his own immoral life because the portrait will take the blame for him. But, of course, he goes too far by killing his old friend Basil Hallward and begins to suffer from guilt. Wilde is showing us that nobody can ever escape the moral consequences of their actions. To this familiar moral fable Wilde adds the extra ingredient of sexual scandal. Although the novel never actually describes it, the reader is aware that there is an undercurrent of sexuality in many of the relationships. Apart from the story of Sibyl Vane, we do not know exactly what Dorian does that is so ‘immoral’, as in Victorian England it was impossible for a writer to be honest about sexual matters. In the end, good triumphs over evil when Dorian kills himself. This is the type of moral ending that was expected in 19th century literature. The Picture of Dorian Gray is not simply a moral fable. It is full of Oscar Wilde’s unique wit and humour. The dialogue sparkles with numerous examples of Wilde’s epigrams— short witty sayings which have now become part of the English language. These epigrams are often based on irony or a reversal of logic, a typical example of which is when Lord Henry says ‘I choose my friends for their beauty and my enemies for their intelligence. A man cannot be too careful in choosing his enemies.’ Wilde’s own conversation was full of this wit, and it gives the novel an extra dimension which most Victorian stories lack.

They believe that each time you take a photograph of someone you take a little bit of their soul away. Can the class explain why this is? Do they share these feelings? > Activities after reading a section Chapters 1–3 Write this famous epigram (clever, witty or funny saying) from the book on the board: ‘I choose my friends for their beauty and my enemies for their intelligence. A man cannot be too careful in choosing his enemies.’ Ask students to work in pairs. Do they agree with this saying or not? Each student finds one more epigram from these chapters. Chapters 4–6 1. Put students into small groups to answer these questions: a Why does Dorian change his mind about Sibyl? b ‘He felt the time had come to choose. Or had he already chosen?’ (p. 32). What is this choice? c What would you choose if you were in the same situation? Chapters 7–8 Put students into pairs. They write as many adjectives as they can to describe Basil Hallward and as many adjectives as they can to describe Lord Henry. After 5–10 minutes, put two pairs together to compare ideas. They make a list of adjectives they all agree with. Write all adjectives on the board. Chapters 9–10 Put this sentence on the board: ‘Corruption is a thing that writes itself across a man’s face. It cannot be hidden.’ (p. 45). Put students into small groups. They discuss this statement and whether they agree with it or not. Chapters 11–13 Dorian says ‘I have done too many terrible things in my life. I am not going to do any more.’ (p. 56). In small groups, students answer these questions: a Do you believe what Dorian says above? b Can you think of ways people can get forgiveness for earlier bad behaviour?
