Unit 2.WHAT ARE YOU GOOD AT? IS YOUR LIFE UNDER PRESSURE?
Kristin Thompson from the book ‘Second Chance’ by Kate William was good at tennis.
Kristin Thompson was sitting alone in the library. Lunch hour was almost over, and she still hadn’t begun her English essay. The essay always took a lot of work, and with her tennis schedule, Kristine didn’t have enough time to the paper. So it was better to start early.
The library door opened, and Shelley Novak came in. When the door opened, Kristin could hear people in the hallway. Kristin suddenly wished she had friends with whom she could talk and laugh.
But time was too valuable. Kristin always ate quickly, then hurried to the library to work. If she socialized (=spent time with other people) during lunch hour, she lost an hour in practice after school
And Kristine knew she couldn’t change her strict schedule if she wanted to be a pro. She was up every morning at six to jog. And then when school was over she hurried back on her bike to the tennis club to practice with her private coach (тренер) until (=till) dinner. Kristin didn’t even get around to her homework until eight–thirty or nine, and she had to be in bed at ten thirty. Her schedule didn’t leave a lot of time for having fun. But if you want to be a pro, you have to lead that kind of life.
Shelley came over to Kristin’s table to look something up in the dictionary. “You are Kristin Thompson, right? The tennis champion?”
Kristin felt shy. “That’s me,” she said simply.
“I’m Shelley Novak. I’m on the girls’ basketball team. I’m a sports fanatic, and I’m already reading about you in the sports pages.”
“The Avery Cup tournament (турнир) is coming up,” Kristin said. “I guess that’s an important tournament for you. I hope you win,” Shelley said. “ Do you feel like you’re under a lot of pressure (давление)?”
“Well, sort of,” Kristine agreed. “ It always is with a serious sport. It must be the same with basketball, she added.
“Well, it’s a little different, because I don’t want to be a pro basketball player. I don’t think I could handle (справиться) all the pressure. But I really admire you, Kristine.”
“Thanks, Kristine said. She had always said that tennis was her whole life. But sometimes she felt she would give (отдала бы) anything in the world not to be under so much pressure, to be like everybody else. Sometimes she wished she would exchange all her prises for a normal life; to go out on dates, to parties, or simply hang out with friends at school instead of spending every single minute of her life practicing.

UNIT 3. READING LESSON. DO YOU TAKE PART IN CHARITY EVENTS?
Christmas is a time for charity. It’s also a time when families come together. Charlie and Janet are the characters of a story from the ‘Catch’ magazine. They were the organisers of the Christmas charity concert.
Charlie was nervous about the concert. He was worried because at the beginning of the evening he had to make a short speech (речь). So as they waited at the bus stop, he asked Janet, “Do you mind if I practise my speech?” “No,” said Janet. “I’d love to hear it.”
Charlie took a deep breath (глубоко вздохнул) and began: “ We’re here this evening because we want to raise money to help animals. Animals have rights (права), just like us. We believe that meat is murder (убийство). We believe that fur coats are a crime (преступление) against nature. If you don’t eat meat, if you hate fur (мех), join us and help animals everywhere– show sympathy.” Charlie looked at Janet. “ Well,” he said, “what do you think?” “ I think it’s a brilliant speech,” she said. “Tomorrow will be a great success. Don’t worry!”
At the dinner table, Janet said, “I’m going to a concert tomorrow, Grannie.” “What’s that?” asked her grandmother.
Janet was very fond of her grandmother, although it was often difficult to have a conversation with her because she was a bit deaf (глухая).
“A CONCERT!” shouted Janet. “I’M GOING TO A CONCERTTOMORROW. IT’S OUR CHARITY. WE’RE RAISING MONEY TO HELP ANIMALS.”
“A charity concert?” said her grandmother. “That’s nice. Perhaps I’ll come with you tomorrow.”
“BUT GRUNNIE,” shouted Janet, “IT’S NOT YOUR TYPE OF MUSIC.”
“I’m sorry, dear,” said Janet’s grandmother. “I can’t hear you.”
