  4. 4. Guess what? 6.4 Reading and writing Unit6 1 Read the story and match the pictures to the paragraphs. A shaggy dog story … a 3 Well, this is a completely true story that happened to a friend of mine … well, more of a friend of a friend, actually. Anyway, it happened 1 a few years ago, oh, about 1999, when my friend was on a walking and camping holiday in Scotland … b ___ My friend’s called Bobby, by the way. That’s not his real name. He’s really called Kevin Arthur Bishop, but he’s completely bald, like an egg, except for one or two hairs that are really long that he combs across 2 the top of his head. So everyone called him Bobby, after Bobby Charlton, the English footballer from the 1960s, you know, the only English World Cup winning football team in 1966. c ___ But that’s not really important to the story … So, where was I? Oh, yes, Bobby was on holiday in Scotland, walking with his tent and 3 tasting the local whisky — that’s a special drink from Scotland and it’s very strong. Not everyone likes the taste. I don’t. It tastes of petrol to me. d ___ So, Bobby was walking through a lovely village in Scotland. It was a beautiful summer day, the sun was shining, which was quite unusual because it normally rains in Scotland. And as Bobby was walking through 4 this village, he heard a dog barking. e ___ Now, Bobby doesn’t really like dogs — he prefers hamsters and rabbits and other small pets — and so when the dog came around the corner, Bobby was quite frightened. The dog was barking and growling fiercely at Bobby. 5 f ___ Just then, a sweet little girl holding her dolly appeared from the same place as the dog. She stroked the dog on his head and said hello to Bobby. ‘Does your dog bite?’ asked Bobby. ‘Oh, no,’ said the little girl, very innocently, ‘my little doggy doesn’t bite 6 anyone.’ g ___ ‘Oh! That’s good’, said Bobby. He went up to the big dog and stroked it on the head … ‘Grrr! Grrr!’ barked the dog. 7 ‘Aaargh!’ screamed Bobby, as the dog bit him on the bottom. h ___ ‘You said your dog doesn’t bite anyone’, he said to the little girl. ‘My little doggy doesn’t bite anyone’, repeated the little girl, ‘but that’s not my dog!’ 8 2 Answer these questions. d Does the person who is telling the story like whisky? a Where was Bobby on holiday? e What kind of animals does Bobby like? In Scotland b When did the story happen? f What kind of dog has the little girl got? c What kind of holiday was Bobby having? 3 Do you know any funny stories? 30 © Richmond Publishing, 2004 PHOTOCOPIABLE
  5. 5. Guess what? 6.5 Culture Unit6 Mysteries 1 Student A. Read about Nessie and answer your partner’s questions. Student B. Read about the Yeti and answer your partner’s questions. Nessie Loch Ness is a lake in Scotland and it is home to the legendary Loch Ness monster or ‘Nessie’. Over the years, many people have reported seeing a hump-backed animal with a long neck in the loch. The first sighting was recorded in the 6th century. A road was built around the loch in the 1930s and after that, public interest in Nessie grew. There are doubts over Nessie’s existence. Some sightings were definitely hoaxes. Although scientists have investigated with high-tech sonar equipment, there is still no scientific proof of the legend. There are different theories to explain the sightings and unclear photographs and film of the ‘monster’. Some people say that Nessie might be a plesiosaur that has survived from prehistoric times. Others say the movements in the water might be the result of several things including earth tremors, the presence of other animals like deer or dogs, or the effects of inanimate objects such as logs. The Yeti The Yeti or Abominable Snowman is the legendary wild man of the Himalayas. Similar creatures reported from the American northwest are called Big Foot in the USA and Sasquatch in Canada. The creatures are ape-like, heavily-built, hairy and smelly. They communicate only with grunts and shouts. Nobody knows if the creatures really exist. The physical evidence — footprints, body parts, hair and indistinct photos — are sometimes hoaxes or they come from unknown animals. In 1960, the mountaineer Edmund Hillary agreed to investigate reports of the Yeti in the Himalayas. He found no definite proof of its existence. A ‘yeti’ scalp from a Tibetan monastery was just a fur hat made of goat skin. Investigations continue. Some explanations are: the creature is an undiscovered species of ape, a last survival of Neanderthal man, or even an extraterrestrial being. Questions for Student B to ask Student A.
