Travelling

One beautiful spring morning right after my 12th birthday my parents and I decided to travel. My mom told me to pack up my things. It was warm and sunny and I decided to take a pair of jeans, a sweater, a couple of T- shirts and the sun glasses, of course. We went to the seashore. It was a little windy there and I saw as great waves were coming on the beach. The birds were flying above the water, they were looking for the fish, I guess.

Later it was found out that we had neighbours. It was also a family from Uhta. It took them a week to come there. Very soon I saw a girl of my age. She was walking with her dog. The girl’s name was Tracy. We liked to walk together with her dog, his name was Spike, he used to run along the beach and make a lot of sandcastles. Very soon we became friends.

After a week we came back home, but Tracy and I are still friends. Every week I write her a long letter and we often remember our spring holidays.

The Travellers and the Bear.

It was a wonderful day. Through the thick leaves of the trees the sunlight played on the grass and flowers, on the bushes. But the two travellers who were walking through the forest were not happy at all. Their loud voices rang through the trees.

“Will you stop worrying?” cried one of the travellers in a loud voice. “Nothing is going to happen. I’ll look after you. Everything will be all right. So let’s try to enjoy the fine weather.”

His friend heard all this, but it didn’t help. He was so afraid that every little sound made him jump. He was sure that wild animals were waiting to jump at them.

A second later a great bear jumped out in front of the travellers. There was no time to think. It was too late to run away. The first traveller, who had promised so much, was light and quick on his feet. He climbed up the nearest tree as fast as he could and disappeared among the thick green leaves.

The second traveller was not so quick. When he saw that his friend had left him, he fell flat on the ground, held his breath, and lay very still.

The bear looked at him, quite surprised. This was something new and strange that the animal could not understand.

The bear moved slowly around the man, it sniffed him over, it touched the traveller’s ear with its nose. The traveller lay quite still, like a dead man. Was it true that bears didn’t touch dead bodies? Would the bear leave him alone?

Seconds passed. Each one seemed as long as a lifetime. At last the bear lifted its head. With an angry cry it left the man and ran off into the woods again.

The traveller in the tree climbed down. His face was white. “Tell me, my friend,” he said, ”what did the bear whisper in your ear?”

“He told me,” answered the other, “to be careful with a friend who runs away when danger comes.”

Write down whether the following statements are true or false.

The two travellers who were walking through the forest were talking loudly.

The weather was fine.

Script

…First, tell me something about yourself.

Well, I’m 44 years old, unmarried, and I teach English in a local secondary modern school. I own my own house-a smallish terrace house just outside the centre of the city, with three bedrooms and a small garden. I’ve got two younger brothers. One of them, Julian, also lives in Salisbury. He’s a teacher too, but he works in a private language school teaching English to foreign students.

One more question, Jerry. You’ve lived and worked in Salisbury for over 20 years. What keeps you here?

That’s a difficult one. My job, I suppose. I often complain, but who doesn’t? On the whole, though, I’m happy with it. The most of my friends live here or nearby. And the city itself; it’s a beautiful place, full of history, surrounded by amazing countryside and within easy reach of some of my favorite places. No, I wouldn’t change it.
