Now we are ready to start.

Speaker 1

My friend likes people who aren’t afraid to be different from the majority of their race, age group etc. She hates seeing people who always share the same thoughts as others, no matter how intelligent they are because intelligence to her has always been about logical thinking no matter what you know. I agree with her and I like those who are able to draw their own conclusions and go against the norm. We’re not afraid to be labelled a deviant.

Speaker 2

My best friend and I have been friends for a long time and recently I’ve been noticing that we’re drifting apart. I think our friendship is very competitive even though we don’t show it on the outside or ever talk about it. We always try to one upon one another. We’ve had numerous fights throughout our history both verbal and physical but they weren’t anything that couldn’t be repaired. We both recently graduated from college and for a little while, we were both looking at a very uncertain future.

 Speaker 3

My best friend is one of my classmates. I know I can rely on her. Even when our lives get busy we still make time to see each other. I can’t imagine going to school and not having her there. Since I am better in math and science and she is better in English and languages, we can always help each other if we get confused about a difficult homework assignment. We are lucky that we complement each other so well. I hope that our friendship will continue and be just as strong after we graduate from high school. We would like to study at the same university.

 Speaker 4

My best friend’s name is Marcela. We have known each other since we were 8 years old. We both enjoy music, playing the guitar and singing. We like going to the cinema but sometimes can’t agree on which movie to see. We both like travelling, reading and swimming. Sometimes during the summer I go with her and her family to their summer house which is located next to a large lake. Whatever we’re doing, it’s always fun to be with her.

Speaker 5

I found my best friend at boarding school. She became the most important person in my life. She was always ready to encourage me, to comfort me. She was my biggest supporter in both the good and the bad. Unfortunately now we don’t live close by each other so I haven’t seen her for a long time. I cherish my memories of her so much. I will never give up hope that our paths are destined to cross again.

Speaker 6

My friend doesn’t have to work because his parents pay for his college and all his expenses. All he has to worry about is studying and doing his homework. Nevertheless, instead of using the time wisely, he always puts off doing his college work by saying that there is enough time to do it later. Moreover, almost every afternoon he watches television and talks on the phone with his friends. He prefers to study after eight o’clock at night, but this was the time his friends wanted to go out.

You have 15 seconds to complete the task. (Pause 15 seconds.) Now you will hear the texts again. (Repeat.) This is the end of the task. You now have 15 seconds to check your answers. (Pause 15 seconds.)


Which speaker says that…

A.        she is missing her friend.

B.        everyone should have her/his own opinion.

C.        his friendship is fading.

D.        her friend and she are interested in many of the same hobbies.

E.        her friend doesn’t appreciate time and his parents’ help.

F.        his/her friend looks beautiful.

G.        her friend and she help each other.









          2. READING

You are going to read a magazine article about the effects of fame. For statements 1-7 choose the answer A, B, C.  Circle the right answer.

What Price Fame?

How do film stars cope with being famous? Does fame bring happiness? Rory Taylor takes a closer look at stardom and its effects on those lucky enough to have it.

After more than 20 years in the film industry Mel Gibson says that the biggest lesson he’s learned as an actor has been how important it is to have a loving family at his side. ‘When I started out in my career I was often referred to as «the sexiest man in the world» or some such nonsense. At the time, though, it went to my head and I really took to being a celebrity. However, after the initial euphoria I found that not only was I spending long periods away from home but I never had any time to myself, none of which made me particularly happy.’ His wife Robyn saw what was happening and came to the rescue; she simply told him to ‘stop, come home and take some time off.’

But Mel Gibson thinks it’s ten times worse for today’s young stars. He believes that the new breed of heart-throbs such as Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio have it much harder than he ever did. ‘The youngsters today receive constant attention from the media, which means they can’t do anything without seeing their picture all over the front page the next day.’

The experience of Cameron Diaz bears witness to that. All the time she was dating Matt Dillon she never felt her personal life was her own. ‘After a while we both got used to being chased by photographers, and having every aspect of our relationship analyzed by the media. But it meant we could never really lead a normal life together.’ The pressures of working together with Dillon on There’s Something About Mary were probably as much to blame for their painful and much publicized break-up as the sensation-seeking journalists, but all the same, Cameron has resolved to be more guarded about her private life and she now gives as little away as possible about her relationships.

Wild man of comedy, Jim Carrey, also complains about the lack of privacy. He remembers with anger the time he took some family photographs to be developed in a shop close to his $4 million Los Angeles home. ‘Two weeks later they were in the local newspaper. Someone in the shop obviously made a lot of money out of them.’ For Carrey, being a famous actor also means being a diplomat. ‘People may come up to you in the street when you’re in a really bad mood, and you have to talk to them as if you were delighted to see them. If not, word gets round that you’re a miserable human being and that’s how you’re remembered.’

Bruce Willis feels that too much importance is attached to what’s written in magazine articles, since most of it’s untrue anyway. He firmly believes he has a right to protect himself and his family from over-inquisitive reporters. ‘If the paparazzi start taking photos of my children and asking them questions, I just get in the way and teach them a few manners. Of course, they don’t take too kindly to this, and the public is given the impression from what they read that I’m arrogant and rude. It’s all very frustrating.’

Frustrating it may be, but how sorry should we feel for people like Willis? Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones certainly can’t complain about journalists: it is said they were paid £1 million by OK! magazine for allowing its photographers to take exclusive pictures of their wedding. Of course, being in the public eye does have its drawbacks, but these are nothing compared with the positive aspects of fame. After all, if the publicity and pressure of fame get too much for the

Douglas family, they can always escape to Michael’s large house on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Mallorca. Fame is a wonderful thing — as long as you can afford to get away from it!

Silent Samantha

She walked into the room, 14___ (drag) her feet behind her, her hands dug deep into the pockets of her jeans, her shoulders and head slouched forward. She stared at the classroom floor for a few seconds as though mesmerized by it. Her long black hair hung down around her face preventing it from being 15___ (see)   by the rest of the curious English students.

She moved her head slightly, revealing her pale white face 16___ (hide) beneath her hair, and 17___ (care) began to make her way towards the empty desk next to mine. She sat down slowly, as though she was in pain. «I hope you don’t mind me 18___ (sit)   here», she said in a gentle voice. Then, she turned her head and stared out of the classroom window. What she was staring at I don’t know, but she only moved twice during the hour-long class. As soon as the bell rang, she picked up her bag, 19___ (throw)   it over her left shoulder, and was gone.

The same thing happened week after week, she would enter the room, walk over to the window seat, sit down and then stare out of the window aimlessly. I often wondered what she was staring at but I never dared to ask 20__ (she). Sometimes, I would catch her eye after class, but she never said 21___ (any). The only thing I ever knew about her was her name — Samantha.

Nanotechnology has become a buzzword in the mass media worldwide. But what exactly is nanotechnology? The main thing to know about nanotechnology is that it’s really small. It is a science of construction in which dimensions of the components are less than 100 nanometers. Nano is a prefix that means «dwarf» in Greek. Nano is shorthand for nanometer, one-billionth of a meter. Nanometer is a distance so minute that it can’t be compared to anything in the regular world. A component used in nanotechnology is billions of times thinner than a human hair.

Nanotechnology is based on the fact that familiar materials begin to develop odd properties when they’re nanosize. Substances behave magically at the nanoscale. It’s a tantalizing idea to create a material with ideal properties by customizing its atomic structure. For instance, if we tear a piece of aluminum foil into tiny strips, it will still behave like aluminum. But at some point (20 to 30 nanometers) the pieces of aluminum can explode. Not all nanosize materials change properties so usefully, but the fact that some do is a boon. With them, scientists can engineer plenty of exotic new materials. Some examples of such materials are plastic that conducts electricity and coatings that prevent iron from rusting. Nanotechnology is like shrinking cat until at some point, all at once, it turns into a dog.

Nanotechnology has been developed for almost two decades. However, the first results are becoming clear to the general public only now. It is often said that in the near future nanotechnology will affect everything from the batteries we use to the clothes we wear to the way we treat cancer.

What’s amazing is how quickly nanotechnology is evolving. Nano’s going to be like the invention of plastic. It’ll be everywhere: in the scalpels doctors use for surgery and in the fabrics we wear.

At the moment commercial applications of nanotechnology continue to spread at a breathtaking rate. For example, homeowners now have the option of installing windows whose glass is manufactured with the use of nanotechnology. The glass doesn’t streak and never needs washing. Food companies have begun experimenting with nanopackaging. It changes color when food spoils or contains some harmful bacteria.

Although much of nanotechnology’s promise remains unrealized, investment in the field is booming worldwide. The U.S., Japan and the European Union have spent huge amounts of money on research in this field. Even smaller countries are hurrying to get a foot in the door.

1. What is the basic element of nanotechnology?

A. size

B. the method of construction of components

C. distance

D. a human hair

2. What can compare in the real world with a nanometer?

A. dimensions of the components

B. a dwarf

C. a shorthand

D. nothing

3. A material with ideal properties can be created …

A. by developing odd properties.

B. by tearing it into small strips.

C. by customizing its atomic structure.

D. by exploding its tiny pieces.

4. Which of these statements is true to the text?

A. The Greeks were pioneers in nanotechnology.

B. All materials may acquire useful properties in nanotechnology.

C. Aluminum can develop useful properties.

D. Nanotechnology can be used to turn a cat into a dog.

5. When did the general public begin to be aware of nanotechnology?

A. twenty years ago


not long ago

C. Practically no one knows about it yet.

D. The text doesn’t contain any information about it.

6. In the future nanotechnology is predicted to …

A. eliminate batteries.

B. change our life dramatically.

C. change the way we wear clothes.

D. do away with cancer.

7. How intensive is the development of nanotechnology at the moment?

A. The article doesn’t provide any information about it.

B. not very intensive

C. not as intensive as the general public would like it

D. very intensive

8. What areas is nanotechnology going to be used in in the future?

A. mostly in medicine

B. mostly in industry

C. practically in all spheres of life

D. in animal cloning

9. Which of these is not mentioned in the article?

A. the use of nanotechnology in everyday life

B. the use of nanotechnology in improving people’s health

C. the use of nanotechnology in killing harmful bacteria

D. the potential of nanotechnology

10. Why are even smaller countries trying to get a foot in the door in terms of investing in


A. They do it because much of nanotechnology’s promise hasn’t been realized yet.

B. They do it because investment in nanotechnologies is booming in these countries.

C. They do it because they can benefit from it later on.

D. They do it because the U.S, the European Union and Japan have spent huge amounts of money

on it.

Reading Comprehension

Part 1
You are going to read a magazine article about the planets of the solar system. Choose the most suitable heading from the list A-H for each part (1-7) of the article. There is one extra heading which you do not need to use.

A Too hot for life.
В A place of contrasts.
С Red for danger.
D Gases in turmoil.
E A treat for the amateur.
F A distant wanderer.
G An unseen influence.
H Fact and fiction.

A family of worlds

1. The solar system is a family of worlds. Nearest to the sun is Mercury, a place where the day is hot enough to melt some metals and the night sufficiently cold to make a rubber ball as brittle as glass. The planet has no atmosphere to scatter light so the sun glares down from a pitch black sky.

2. Venus, on the contrary, has an atmosphere so thick that no one on its surface could ever see the sun. Though the sun is concealed, its energy reaches the planet’s surface, turning it into a baking desert where nothing can live.

3. Beyond the earth and its moon we come to the planet Mars. Its famous redness is due to oxidization — a sort of rusting process that has taken place over millions of to years. According to a now discredited theory, intelligent creatures on Mars have dug canals to harness the small amounts of water released when the planet’s polar ice¬caps melt in the Martian spring.

4. Jupiter is a giant ice-ball surrounded by an atmosphere of poisonous gases. It is an atmosphere full of storms and turmoil. The biggest storm of all — visible in the form 15 of the Great Red Spot — has lasted for over 200 years and shows no sign of dying away.

5. Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are giant stepping stones leading us into the unseen coldness of outer space. Saturn is the most distinctive planet of the three, since it has the famous rings which almost everyone has heard about. They form a halo 20 round its equator and no one knows quite how they were formed. A spectacular sight when observed through a powerful telescope, they can also be seen and enjoyed with a simple pair of binoculars.

6. Beyond Neptune orbits little Pluto. Too small and too far from the sun to receive much light, it reflects so little that it tells us very little indeed about itself. Its orbit 25 sometimes brings it nearer to the sun than Neptune; at other times it swings out into the blackness of space as if it never means to return.

7. Could there be another planet even further away than Pluto? There are clues that the answer to this may be yes. A mysterious gravitational pull is disturbing the orbits of Neptune and Pluto, suggesting that an unseen world awaits discovery.

Part 2
You are going to read an extract from an autobiography. For questions 8-15, choose the answer (А, В, С or D) which you think fits best according to the text.

The warden led us in single file along a narrow line of paving slabs that ran past the huts. Every so often, four steps led to a front door. We could hear people inside, shouting at children.
‘The overcrowding has to be believed,’ he said as he shook his head forlornly.
We squeezed to one side as a sullen woman passed us, carrying a bucket of coal. She had the look of someone who was old before her time.
The warden went up the last set of steps, opened the door with a jangling bunch of keys, took one off the ring and handed it to me.
‘There you are. Home Sweet Home. There’s a bath in that hut by the trees; get the Ю key from me when you want one,’ he said, and he came down the steps, leaving us room to go up. ‘I hope you can make a go of it,’ he said. ‘At least we’ve got you a bit of furniture.’
We walked into a square ‘cell’ with a table and two chairs and a two-seater settee. No two of anything were the same; it all looked like furniture from a charity shop, which is I suppose it was. There was a double hotplate on top of a low cupboard, and a dead black stove against the back wall with a scuttle beside it containing a few lumps of fuel. The adjoining ‘cell’ had a double bed with a pink plastic mattress cover, glistening like wet salmon. There was a cupboard that hung open because the door catch had gone. Inside the cupboard were two meagre blankets.
The bedroom was freezing. I struggled to shut the top flap of the window, but it was jammed open by rust. There were bits of yellowing sellotape all round the wall near it, where previous inmates had tried to block the draught with cardboard.
I sat on the bed with my head in my hands, wondering how long we would have to spend here before we found a real home, and noticing, as I glanced sideways into 25 the front room, that a thin film of dust was blowing under the front door.
We took the plastic cover off the mattress because it looked worse than the stains underneath. The blankets smelled, but we had to keep warm somehow.
We had been in this place exactly a week when, on returning in the evening, we went up to our front door and heard children’s voices and a transistor radio. We peered 30 round the door at a jumble of people and things and colours. The people turned round and we all looked at each other. The muddle resolved itself into a huge woman and a little man, and two small children. They had a lot of stuff, mostly carrier bags and laundry bags with clothes spilling out, and a couple of buckets full of kitchen equipment which we’d have been glad to have ourselves.
They didn’t want to share with us any more than we did with them, but that’s what the warden had told them to do. We argued about it, though it seemed ridiculous to quarrel over accommodation which none of us really wanted anyway.

8.    The place is
A  a prison.
В  a hostel for the homeless.
С  a holiday camp.
D  old people’s bungalows.

9.    The warden seems to think that the couple’s accommodation is
A  cosy.
В  unpleasant.
С  spacious enough.
D  well furnished.

10.    The main reason the author feels cold in the bedroom is that
A  there isn’t enough fuel for the stove.
В  the window lets in a lot of draught.
С  there aren’t enough blankets.
D  the door lets in a lot of draught.

11.    The main thing the author notices about the furniture is that
A  it looks or smells dirty.
В  most of it is in poor condition.
С  it is very cheap.
D  nothing matches anything else.

12.    The author feels
A  unhappy.
В  optimistic.
С  determined to make the best of the situation.
D  angry.

13.    Taking the plastic cover off the mattress
A  releases the smell of the blankets.
В  improves the appearance of the bed.
С  helps the couple to keep warm.
D  makes the bed look worse.

14.    The couple’s first feeling when they return home to find other people there is
A  confusion and bewilderment.
В  anger.
С  fear.
D  envy of all their kitchen equipment.

15.    The four other people are in the accommodation
A  by mistake.
В  because they have been told to share their kitchen equipment.
С  because they have been told to share the accommodation.
D  because a week is up and it is their turn to live there.

How do we choose the signs and symbols we use each day? We use green to say go and red to say stop, but just (31) …………..if traffic lights were purple and pink.
They’d work just the same, so why have we fixed on red (32)…………..the colour of warning signals and things like that?
Of course, when (33)…………..comes to fashions humans vary their choice of

while (34)…………..year pink will be all (35)…………..rage. Colours for cars change

In (36)…………..of all this variation there are one or two psychological facts that

  4. Different ambitions

  5. Small differences

  6. No difference at all

  7. Different rules

  8. Learning to be different

A. John and James are identical twins but they don’t go to the same school. Their parents felt
this would help them develop individual tastes, interests and styles — but the boys at first
hated the idea. Now they are really happy at their schools but occasionally they swap
places just for fun! The brothers are best friends but they now agree that their parents
were probably correct.
B. Anna and Beth are twin sisters but they are most unlike each other. Technically they are
«non-identical» twins. Anna is blonde and Beth is a brunette. Anna is noisy, energetic and
always crashing around to hip hop and rap. Beth is much quieter and likes listening to
classical music and reading. Anna eats anything and Beth is a vegetarian. But they are,
absolutely, the closest and best of friends.
C. The Perkins children, Sally and John, both study hard every evening after college and
most weekends. Sally studies French, History and Art. She plans to go to university in
Paris and wants to either work in a museum or an art sale room. John studies the Russian
language, business studies and Maths. He wants to study in St Petersburg and to set up
his own important business. I am sure both will succeed.
D. Greg’s dad believes that there is no original, exciting new music being written and
performed today. Greg strongly disagrees and can name several new bands and singers
that are both completely original and really popular. But his Dad is a professional
musician and was quite successful when he was young. He argues that nearly every
successful song now is simply a reworked version of an older one.
E. In the UK you can legally do different things depending on your age. You can vote for a
new government at 18 but at 17 you cannot drink a beer. At 16 you can marry and
become a parent but you cannot drive to your wedding or make a traditional toast!
Meanwhile lots of bars and clubs are open only to people above 21 which means, married, voting, car driving parents could still be too young to enter.
F. Serious stamp collectors are men and women who appreciate details. To the casual
observer, the oldest postage stamps in the world — the Victorian «Penny Blacks» — all
look identical. Millions were made but only a few of them are truly valuable. A serious
collector knows this and the ability to find tiny variations in the paper, ink or code used
helps them to find the «Penny Black’s» that are rare and valuable.

G. Dina Ruiz has Japanese and black ancestry on her father’s side of the family and English,

Fashion for kids

Last week, I bought my nine-year-old son a new pair of trainers that were reduced in a sale. They fit him fine and they looked good, but afterwards he didn’t seem very happy with our bargain. (1)____ I seriously thought about taking the shoes back to the shop to exchange them for a more expensive and fashionable make. But why should I pay money I can’t afford, or get into debt just because of peer pressure?

One boy in my son’s class wears jewellery and clothes with designer labels to school. He even wears Calvin Klein aftershave! And he isn’t old enough to shave! I spoke to him and he told me why he had to have the latest fashions. One day he had worn his old trainers to school. (2)_____ When his pals saw him, they called him a tramp! He went straight home and put on his new trainers. His mum isn’t well off, but she always finds the money so that he looks good in front of his mates.

I’ve seen children as young as six going round shoe shops and fashion boutiques looking for the latest styles, desperate for the expensive designer clothes they see on TV. What’s wrong with these kids? (3)_____ Or our materialistic, consumer society?

All the major fashion labels have got special children’s brand. It’s a market which generates £5 billion a year in the UK alone. The big clothing companies and chain stores exploit children at both ends of the production line. (4)______And in our shopping centers full of child consumers competing with each other to be up to date.

If you’re a parent, don’t give your kids the clothes and fashion accessories they ask for. (5)____ Because one thing is sure: you won’t make your kids happy by spoiling them.


Read the following text about pavement art. Decide if the statements 6-11 are true (T) or false (F)

7. Julian’s pictures seem real only if you look at them from one side.

8. Julian photographs his drawings because he worries people will damage them.

9. People often stop to watch Julian draw.

10 Julian only makes one type of art.

11. Julian disagrees with some traditional ideas.

Art For People

I was walking along a quiet city street when suddenly I saw the most amazing thing: three young women were standing on a narrow window ledge on the top of a building which was on fire. Below them Batman and Robin were climbing up a rope to save them as a crowd of people stood and stared. What was really strange was that everything seemed to be happening in a large hole in the pavement in front of me. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It took me a few seconds to realize it wasn’t real; it was a work of art.

The man responsible for it was Julian Beever, a British artist known as the ‘pavement Picasso’, who has been drawing his colorful masterpieces in cities around the world since the 1990s. Julian uses a method called ‘anamorphosis’ to create his wonderful drawings in three dimensions. It’s a question of perspective: from one side the 3Dillusion is perfect, but from the other side the drawing makes no sense.

Julian draws in chalk, so his work is vulnerable to the weather: if it rains, the drawings disappear. It’s hard work and it can take up three days to complete a drawing, so Julian always checks the weather forecast very carefully. His final goal is to take a photograph of his creation before it gets washed away. However, sometimes Julian has to wash off his own unfinished drawings because he hasn’t received permission to use the public pavement as his canvas.

The process of making the drawings is really worth seeing, so Julian often has an audience. In some ways he’s a street performer, and the spectators enjoy the show as much as the end result.

He does 2D drawings, too: portraits of famous people like Princess Diana or Bill Clinton, copies of old masters, and self-portraits. And also wall murals, collages and oil paintings (both landscapes and still lifes).

Julian’s work shows that you don’t need to work in a studio to be an artist, and that you don’t need a frame for every painting. He firmly believes that art shouldn’t be locked away in galleries, libraries and glossy art books. ‘My art is for anybody, it’s for people who wouldn’t go into an art gallery. It’s art for the people’.

Read the following text about an interesting social experiment. Use the words in bold to form one word for each gap 1-9

Subway Music In Washington DC

Most of us who live in a city know what it means to spend 30 minutes in the subway (1) rush through corridors and then trying to get into terribly (2) crowd trains. Well, this guy and this morning was (3) difference. He stopped at one of the entrances to the station and played six (4) beauty Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. Three minutes after he started, a man noticed him and stopped for a few seconds. A minute later the (5) music received his first one dollar trip. The person who was most (6) interest was a 3-year-old boy, who really wanted to listen. His mother didn’t let him stay very long, either.

In the 45 minutes, 1097 people passed by and only six stopped. The (7) violin collected 32 dollars. When he finished playing, nobody noticed and nobody knew that he was Joshua Bell, one of the best soloists in the world. He was playing a violin worth 3.5 million dollars and had played in a concert two days before where people paid an average of 100 dollars for their seats.

The aim of this real-life experiment was twofold. Can we notice beauty in an everyday place and at rather (8) usual hour? Do we recognize genius in an (9) expect situation? And the most troubling question of all: if we miss Joshua Bell playing Bach just because we are not in Carnegie Hall, how many other things do we miss?

Some people like the ballet or the opera… That’s cool… Other people prefer jazz… That’s cool too… Some even like folk music…Why not?… Others love admiring landscapes or sculptures in art galleries or visiting exhibitions of ancient masterpieces in museums… It’s not my cup of tea, but if that’s what turns you on, it’s OK with me… Then there are the TV addicts… They never miss an episode of their favoutite soap operas… And they can tell you the name of every talentless presenter on television. And I don’t criticise them for that… My girlfriend’s father is the newsagent’s best friend. He reads three papers every day, two broadsheets and a tabloid for the sport, two weekly magazines and he’s subscribed to a monthly political review… He watches almost every news broadcast and current affairs programme on television… And listens to the radio when he goes out… And I just say it’s his life and he can do what he likes… So, why does everyone think there’s something wrong with me just because of what I like doing in my free time? I like playing video games. What’s the problem with that? Well, the thing is I’m an adult. I’m 27 and people think I’m too old for video games… They don’t know what they’re talking about. Apparently 56% of all gamers are aged between 24 and 44! Millions of intelligent adults around the world enjoy playing video games. Why? Because video games are good. You need to use your brain a lot more than you do to watch TV. They’re full of excitement and drama. And in my humble opinion, they’re a lot more fun than the opera… So if you’re an adult and you love video games, don’t be shy. Tell everyone you know and tell them why. There’s nothing to feel ashamed of.


We went into the staff room of a comprehensive school in Bristol and asked some teachers this question… ‘What annoys you about your job?’ Here’s what they said…

  1. Just one word: ‘Whatever’. I hate it when my students answer questions with ‘whatever’. It means ‘I don’t care’, or ‘I’ve got no opinion’. It’s so passive. ‘Do you beleive in the death penalty?’ ‘Whatever.’ ‘Do you want the test on Tuesday or Thursday?’ ‘Whatever’. ‘How about a lesson on women’s rights for March 8th?’ ‘Whatever’.

  2. I enjoy teaching. I like most of my pupils a lot. They’re not always as hard-working and conscientious about their written work as they should be, but they’re imaginative and really participate in the classes… The only thing that annoys me about my job is the administration, you know all the paperwork I have to do.

  3. Cheating. They cheat in exams and in the homework we set them. Of course, not everyone does it, but it really annoys me. If I could teach my pupils just one thing, it would be that studying hard and revising for exams is good, and cheating is bad.

  4. There isn’t much that annoys me about my job. Well, correcting homework can be hard work, and taking the register is a waste of time, and sometimes with my favourite classes the bell goes too soon, you know just when we’re starting something interesting. But, really I’m lucky. My students are talented, active and motivated.

  5. A lot of kids have no respect. They don’t respect teachers, or their classmates, or school property. They steal the chalk, the board markers and library book, they write graffiti on the desks and lockers, they destroy textbooks, they fight in the playground, they miss lessons and turn up late…Shall I go on?

  6. My pupils are fine, but some parents are really difficult. They won’t accept that their children aren’t perfect. For example, one boy kept playing truant, and his dad said it was my fault for not making the lessons more interesting! And there’s a mother who always does her daughter’s project work even when I ask her not to.
