B: I’ve got a sore throat.
A: Let’s have a look. Open wide, please. Yes, it is a bit red.

A: Not very. TH give you a prescription and you should be better in a few days.
A: How’s your burger?
B: Nice. But the chips are a bit cold, aren’t they?
A: Mine are OK actually, but this salad isn’t very good.
It was quite expensive for how small it is.
B; Well, that’s the thing about places like this, isn’t it?
You get served quickly but what you get isn’t very goodl
A: Shall we take the stairs to the street level? Were only two floors down.
B: Lets take the lift. My knee still hurts after that football match last Saturday.
A: OK, let’s find it. Now help me remember which level we’re on, so I don’t forget where the car is.
B: It says ‘P2’ on the wall over there, next to the lift.
A: This one looks interesting. It’s by the writer of those other ones, you know… ,
B: The Tiny Detectives series? Oh yes, she’s great she is. My kids love them.
A: Mine too. So, I think I’ll get this for Adam. Have you found anything for Laura?
B: Not yet. But I haven’t looked at the poetry section yet. She likes poetry.

Although I usually like my Maths teacher, Mr Clements, he did something recently that left me feeling a little upset. We sat down for the lesson, and at the very beginning of class, he announced that we were going to have a surprise test. I got a terrible feeling in my stomach when I heard that. I hadn’t been studying very much for a while before that, so I knew I wasn’t going to do well. I guess the lesson is: keep up with your studying!
I suppose students like some subjects better than others. Almost everyone in my class seems to hate History. Everyone except me, that is. Maybe they don’t like the class because our teacher, Mr Baines, gives us a lot of homework. Or maybe they just don’t like the subject. But I really find the past interesting, and I’m really good at remembering dates. Who knows — I might just go on to study it further after I leave school.
I’m taking a lot of difficult subjects this year — History, Physics, English and so on. My teachers are all good and I don’t have any complaints. One of my teachers, though, stands out from the others — Ms Sparks, who teaches Maths. She’s very helpful and kind, and she’s always in a great mood in class. I hope when I grow up I can be like her.
Some kids hate school. They just want to hang out with friends, or they don’t like doing schoolwork. I feel like that occasionally. But when I’m at school, I try to have the best time I can. I like seeing my friends during breaks between classes, saying ‘Hi’ to them, and talking about what’s going on in life. I enjoy talking to my teachers, too. It’s important to have good relationships at school. It’s the best way to enjoy it!
Most of my teachers give us a lot of homework. The only teacher who doesn’t — Ms Barnes, the Science teacher — often lets us do it in class. I’d like to do that in my other classes, but I can’t. I like to get it done as soon as possible, so it’s the first thing I do when I get home.
I don’t want to wait until later because I’m afraid I’ll be too tired to do it.
Hi, Gina — how’s it going?
Great, Mark. I was just working on an essay for English.
What’s it on?
It’s on ways to reduce air pollution. I have to suggest some things we can do, and give reasons and examples.
What have you come up with?
One idea is taking public transport, because a lot of pollution comes from cars. I thought about suggesting we get rid of cars completely, but that seems a little extreme.
What about riding bikes?
That’s a good idea, but it might be a bit difficult if your job or school is a long way from where you live.
That’s true. What else have you got?
My other idea is to plant more trees. Trees are really good for the air.
Well, you know humans breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide? Trees do the opposite. They take in carbon dioxide — which is bad for the air — and get rid of oxygen, which we can breathe in. It’s clever, isn’t it?
Yes, but it seems like there are a lot of trees round town already. We’ve got lots of parks.
Well, I was doing some research online, and the new trend is to plant trees and gardens on the roofs of buildings. It does more than just clean the air. It also makes the building more energy efficient. I wont include that point in my essay, though.
Because it’s not directly related to air pollution?
Exactly. But our city has got plenty of buildings in the centre that could have green spaces on top. Maybe some of them already do.
I haven’t looked into that. It would be a good example to include in my essay. How would I find out about that?
I can ask my dad. He works in the centre. His building may have something like that. You could call the Mayor’s office, too.
Good thinking, Mark! I’m getting excited about my essay now.
Have you thought about discussing factories?
I did, but I thought I would focus on things we could do more directly. With factories, the government would have to tell them to change, don’t you think?
I suppose so. If you approached a factory owner and asked them to reduce pollution, they wouldn’t listen.
Exactly. So, I’ll stick with the two points we mentioned.
Well, good luck with your essay, Gina. I’ll let you know what my dad says about his building.

Thanks for your letter. Your trip to Moscow sounds really exciting! I’ve never been there, but here’s my advice.
First, I would definitely take a camera and a guidebook. Taking pictures of all the sights is a great way to remember your trip. Guidebooks are great for finding important sights and great places to eat. Second, you should take a guided tour. A guide can tell you interesting things about a place that you wouldn’t learn on your own. Last, I think I’d wear a good pair of trainers, to be more comfortable travelling round. And take lots of warm clothes — it can get very cold in Moscow in the winter!
Hope my advice helps, and have a great time!
Bye for now,

An after-school job is good for many reasons. One reason is that it’s a good way to make a little extra money. Another reason is that you can get some work experience, which might help you find a better job later. A third reason is that it teaches you how to be responsible, because you have to show up on time, work with different people and follow rules.
Task 1 sample answer:
Zoos are places where people can see lions, tigers, birds and other animals. A zoo is important because it can be a learning experience for the visitor, and it also makes us aware that these animals exist. Some of the animals are endangered, so zoos can keep them safe. I enjoy going to the zoo because I love animals. There are also sometimes shows to watch at zoos, such as with dolphins and ( birds. I prefer zoos to wildlife parks because it’s a safer environment to see animals and there are more facilities in a zoo, such as places to eat and hang out.
Are there negative aspects to zoos?
I believe so, because the animals have to be kept in cages, instead of living normally in the wild. Also, if they aren’t taken care of properly, it’s an even worse experience for them..
I think so, because you have to take care of a lot of animals, and some of the animals are dangerous. You have to really know what you’re doing in order to avoid injury. But, if you really love animals, it’s probably a wonderful job.
1) What is good about an after-school job?

(Yes, I do. Would you like their names and phone numbers?)

Hi, Rob/Roberta. How are you?
Hello, I’m fine, thanks. How are you?
Fine, thanks. I wanted to ask you if you know of any good private tutors for Spanish.
Yes, I do. Would you like their names and phone numbers?
Oh yes! If you can, please bring them to class tomorrow.
OK. What do you need a tutor for?
I’d like to improve my pronunciation a little.
Also, I have an oral exam coming up and I’d like to practise.
I see. Have you taken oral exams before?
I’ve taken them for lower levels, but this is for a higher level.
How is your Spanish in general?
It’s really good. I enjoy learning Spanish and I’ve been studying a lot this year. I’m sure I’ll do fine in the exam, but it’s nice to practise with someone who speaks it perfectly.
That’s true. By the way, I was wondering — would you like to join me and my friends for a picnic this weekend in the park?
That sounds lovely, but I’d better study Spanish this weekend. What about meeting for a coffee sometime next week after school?
That sounds great.
OK. Well, if you can bring those contacts to school tomorrow, that would be fantastic.
Of course. See you tomorrow!
