Vocabulary Task Script and Answers
  1. A: You look awful. What happened? B: I have difficulty sleeping, and I’m anxious and depressed. I feel miserable. I’m dying for a vacation. A: Maybe all that school work is too much for you. You may try meditation and cut back on fatty foods. B: You’re probably right. I really need to try a different lifestyle.
  2. A: How do you like your life here? B: Wonderful. People are friendly and foods are delicious. A: It seems you are getting over your craving for McDonald’s. B: That’s true. I’m used to a life without Klondike bars and the pancake house. What I really thirst for is a cappuccino after dinner.
  3. A: The recent survey found that youngsters are more concerned about finding work and earning money. B: That’s understandable. I think today’s youths have a higher sense of independence. A: Many older people say that young people are less prepared for adult life than previous generations. B: I can’t agree. Maybe it’s due to the generation gap. I remember when I was young I was itching to leave home as soon as possible.
  4. A: You’re hanging out a lot. When will you be ready to start a family? B: What for? I see little advantage in tying the knot. Look at my married friends. They used to be career-oriented but now they are tied to household drudgery. A: Are you following the latest stay-single trend? B: Yeah, I’d give anything to have my own free time, and it’s more relaxing to be alone.

  5. A: I am in the mood for traveling abroad, but I cannot afford it. B: I have an idea. If you like to work with children, you can volunteer in Bali at a mountain village. I had a truly ideal experience there. A: Marvelous! Tell me more about it. B: I was a volunteer English teacher there last summer. It gave me a taste of life in a developing country. I learned the basics of a wonderful language. I had the chance to surf on the weekends, and I lived with an incredible family. Listening Task
  1. Pre-listening Activity Answer Science Fiction
  2. Listening Activity
  1) First Listening Answers
  1. By visiting a cyber café?
  2. No two cyber café are alike.
  2) Second Listening Answers
  1. To enjoy Internet café.
  2. Entering an Internet café is like taking a wee bite of a Big Mac to her.
  3. At Krakatit, you can surf the Web with a spaceship and talk to dragons and robots.
  4. Cyber café will soon be replaced by mobile phones with high-speed Internet access. Script Kept within a few clicks of hearth and home In Rome, you can read your email while your dirty clothes wash, soak and dry in machines beside you. In Helsinki, you can surf the Web while still sweating from a simmer in a nearby sauna. Some people travel to sample the finest of foreign cuisines. Some seek sublime art to appreciate or sacred architecture to celebrate. Me, I’ve come to think of myself as an international connoisseur of Internet café. In my past five months overseas, I’ve surfed the information superhighway in Swaziland, driven the data expressway in Estonia and cruised the communication causeway in Croatia. And I can say this: Gone are the days when postcards were the preferred method of making those at home envious of your adventures abroad. Set foot on the road to faraway places and you’ll soon find that cyber café are an inescapable part of the contemporary travel experience. Just ask Michelle Amundson from Attleboro, Mass. I found this 23-year-old parked in front of a flat-screen monitor at Big Net café --the biggest Internet café in Vienna 行 exchanging love notes with her boyfriend back home. Michelle has been on vacation 10 days and has emailed him every one of them. Think of myself: My (much) better half is traveling with me and still of the 35 cities we’ve visited thus far, I’ve used cyber café in precisely
  71.4 percent of them. When I left the US, I vowed I wouldn’t eat at a single McDonald’s no matter how cheap and soothingly familiar the food might be. I’ve stayed true to that promise. But I admit when I slip into an Internet café I feel just a wee bit like I’m taking a bite of a Big Mac. I comfort myself, however, with the discovery that no two cyber café are alike. It’s hard to know where to begin in Prague, a city suffering a particularly virulent strain of cyber café-itis. At The
5
Globe you can surf the Net while listening to a jazz trio. At Bohemian Bagel you can order up the namesake roll and a cup of joe along with a side of cyber crack. And at Krakatit, a “science fiction ” café you can surf the Web surrounded by pictures of dragons and spaceships and robots, oh my. Some people predict that cyber café, like postcards, will soon find themselves a relic as mobile phones with high-speed Internet access replace them as the new traveler’s darling. That means no matter where we are we’ll always have the World Wide Web in our pocket. And no matter where we are, we’ll never be more than a button
