Lesson 29 Role of Books

1. Listen, read and remember the words.

2. Listen to the dialogue. Make up a similar one. Role-play it with your ft classmate.

Tony: I have a fantastic home assignment. Unfortunately, I haven’t done it yet because I need some books. Can you borrow those books from your school library for me?

Peter: Yes, sure. Our library provides books for class research and individual study.

Tony: How long have you been a member of it?

Peter: I’ve joined the library this year.

3. Read what students think about reading books. Say which point(s) you share. Give your reasons.

Natalia Nikolaieva

Books became the most integral part of our life. They give us inspiration, enrich us spiritually, they accumulate the wisdom of the whole race. Books are like clear streams which refresh our thoughts. Just open a book and you will comprehend the wise strength of the word — the strength which unites people, their minds and emotions, makes a man and nature a harmonious unity. Some of them are full of adventures and help us relax, others touch upon important social problems and are very instructive.

Yet not every book can give us this pleasure and make on us a lasting impression. So, we must be very selective in choosing books. We must choose books so properly as we choose our friends.

Natalia Stetsko

Books make up a significant and necessary part of our life. Some people like to read for pleasure, some — for instruction, some read from a habit. For me, reading a book is just a drug I cannot live without. Reading books I can travel to different countries and places, make acquaintances with interesting people, take part in different adventures. Reading books I can climb the mountains or swim in the ocean, fly in the sky or make my way through the impassable jungle, be thirsty in the desert or suffer from cold among the snow of the North Pole.

Without books our souls are poor, our life is primitive, and the world in which we live is brightless and joyless.

You can change your life just now! Try to become good friends with books and you’ll see that life is beautiful!
