UNIT 6. YOUTH LIFESTYLE. MODERN YOUTH CLUBS

LESSON 57

1. Listen to the dialogue. Make up a similar one and then act it out with your partner.

Ann: What’s your favourite club, Erik?

Erik: The Downtown Club. They have great music, and one nice thing is that it’s never crowded.

Ann: That’s funny. There’s always a long wait outside my favourite club. And I like it because it’s absolutely packed most nights.

Erik: Why do you think it’s so popular?

Ann: Well, it just opened a couple of months ago, everything is brand new and modern, and there are lots of «hip» people who go there. It’s called The Casablanca.

Erik: Oh, right. It’s the newest «in» place. I’ve heard the reason people go there is just to be seen.

Ann: Exactly! Do you want to go there some night?

Erik: Why not?!

FOCUS ON GRAMMAR

GERUNDS

Part III

Gerunds are used after prepositions (See Grammar Reference Box for most common cases).

• They admitted to committing the crime.

• Leslie made up for forgetting my birthday.

• He is thinking of studying abroad.

Remember that there are many “adjective + preposition” combinations and “noun + preposition” combinations in English as well. These are also followed by gerunds.

• Sandy is scared of flying. (adjective + preposition)

• Nick is anxious about taking the examination. (adjective + preposition)

• His interest in becoming a snowboarder was well known. (noun + preposition)

• Thomas’ story about seeing a grizzly bear was really exciting. (noun + preposition)

3. Read the information in the SPEAK OUT box. Then listen to four people talking and complete the box with the words and phrases you hear.

Teenager’s World

A. It seems to me that it’s all part of becoming an adult. The thing is, when young people are in their teens, they start to question the values and lifestyles of the adult world they see around them.

B. A lot of people believe that when young people reach their teens they look for new role models in their lives. As far as I’m concerned, becoming a Goth or a skater has absolutely nothing to do with looking for role models. Look at young people sixty years ago - they looked and behaved like younger versions of their parents.

C. Frankly, it’s all about money. If you think about it, every new youth fashion makes millions of dollars.

D. Personally, I believe it’s all about music. I’m into nu-metal, my favourite band is BioToxine.
