Script for the recording: The song you are about to hear is all about taking a break from city life, escaping from the crowds,
rinding a quiet place, far from trie human race.
For those of us who live in cities, getting out in the country can provide a welcome break, letting us recharge our batteries. Out in the country, as the song says, we can find a place to
stand alone and take tack somethin' worth remembering.
The countryside also promises escape from the pollution of the city, somewhere to get some decent air to breathe. The countryside also offers somewhere where the sun is not hidden by smog, making it seem no more than
a bright spot in the nighttime.
So, just remember, as the song advises, whenever you
need a bit or room to move
life becomes too fast

you can always find relief at last Out in the country. Here is the song:
Out in the Country
Paul Williams/Roger Nichols

in the country
Before the hreathin' air is gone Before the sun is just a hright spot in the nighttime Out where

Lafayette Hotel is patronized by international celebrities drawn to its French food and service.

People like Nancy made the decision primarily because of/owing to/due to their desire to improve the quality of their lives. But, to run a small business is by no means an easy job. Without her steady income, Nancy had to cut back on her daily expenses. Sometimes she did not even have the money to pay the premiums for the various kinds of insurance she needed. Once she could not even pick up the phone bill and had to ask her parents to loan her some money. Fortunately, through her own hard work, she has now got through the most difficult time. She is determined to continue pursuing her vision of a better life.

Model paper Recent Changes in Chinese Family Life Great changes have taken place in Chinese family life in the past twenty years. In my parents' words, the difference between their childhood and mine is as vast as that between heaven and earth. When my parents were young, there was no TV, no computers nor any other electronic appli-ances in their home. Their food was simple and their clothing plain. What is unbelievable to young people today is that they seldom dined out in a restaurant, or traveled to a scenic spot for a holiday. In contrast to family life one generation ago, each family in China today has at least one TV set and many have been equipped with telephones, computers, even cars. While the senior members of a family watch films on TV at home, the younger members like to play computer games or talk to their friends who may live thousands of miles from them. The changes in Chinese family life mirror the economic development of our country. Without the prosperity of the whole country, our family life would probably be just the same as before. Times have changed, and changed, most would surely agree with me, for the better. (194 words)

Script for the recording: The song you are going to listen to is called Abraham, Martin & John, sung by Dion.
Abraham, Martin & John
Has anybody here, Seen my old friend Abraham, Can you
tell me, where he's gone,
He freed a lotta people, But it seems the good die young, I just loohed around, And he's gone,
Has anybody here, Seen my old friend John, Can you tell me, where he's gone, He freed a lotta people, But it seems the good die young, I just loohed around,
And he' s gone,
Has anybody here, Seen my old friend Martin,

And he's gone,
Didn't you love the things they stood for, Didn't they try to find some good for you and me, And we'll he free, Someday soon it's gonna be one day,
Has anybody here, Seen my old friend Bothy, Can you
tell me, where he's gone, the hill, With
I thought I saw him walhin' up over
Ahrah am, Martin and John. The unit we are going to study is all about civil-rights heroes. The song you have just heard is about four of them. Can you guess who they are? All are American. All are dead, all, as the song says, "gone". How about Abraham? Dion says he freed a lot of people. That's one clue. Another comes when she quotes the proverb: "the good die young." So it seems Abraham died young. My guess is Dion has in mind Abraham Lincoln, the American president who freed the slaves and was assassi-nated. How about John, another leader who helped people to free themselves? He too died young. Can you guess who it might be? President John F. Kennedy seems most likely. He too supported civil rights. He too died young, assassinated like Lincoln. Now who could Martin be? Another civil-rights leader who died young, once again assassi-nated. A great speaker comes to mind. Who do you think? Martin Luther King, surely. And finally, Bobby. Bobby who? Probably Dion is thinking of Bobby Kennedy, John Kennedy's brother, another supporter of civil rights. He was running for president when, like his brother before him, he too was gunned down.

To deal with this problem, animal protectionists have forged an international alliance. On the other hand they have urged the United Nations to lay down more specific laws to save these animals.
  2) It was reported that food supplies would soon run out and most of the victims of the earthquake would starve to death. At huge risk, a group of volunteers from the Red Cross took on the mission to transport food, clothes and medicine to the most seriously hit areas.
