LESSON 1 My Friends Healthy Lifestyle
1. Listen to the text and answer the questions below.
It’s been eight years since you got acquainted with English. It’s certainly been a wonderful time with exciting tours around the English speaking world.
There’s one more year to go - another year of a marvellous journey into the wonders of Great Britain, mysteries of Mother Nature and the power of science and technology, the magic of mass media, the happy and unforgettable moments of family and friendship, the variety of occupational possibilities and achievements, the best memories of easy-going youth life.
As you go on with the study of English, the textbook will help you get prepared for the best performance at the English tests you will be asked to take in the nearest future.
So, get ready for both enjoyment and consistent work! Remember, success comes to those who take pains to reach it.
May success attend you!

The holidays have gone! It’s really sad. But I’ve got plenty of marvellous impressions to share with you.
In June I went to a summer camp. It was great there. Guess what happened while I was staying there?! An earthquake!!! It was around 9 p.m. We were watching TV — there was a nice comedy on when the earth started shaking. We ran out of the house. There were a lot of people. They were running here and there, the children were crying. In about half an hour there was an announcement that the earthquake was over, and people started returning to their homes. It was quite a scary experience.
What about you? Did anything scary happen to you during your summer holidays? I can’t wait to read your stories.
