6. Have a quick look at the argument in the following dialogue and say what it is about. Choose a), b) or c).

Grandma: No, I haven’t. But we’ve already argued about these shows. They’re just a poor substitute for real life. What you hear there is just a small talk, shallow chit-chat and gossip. No criteria. No clue what clever people have said or written about. Come on, Hana, start reading, talk to real people. Get a life of your own.

Hana: How unfair! You’re such a typical teacher. These shows aren’t school. They’re real life. Hallo? You always talk about books and people from the past. Who cares?

Grandma: That’s exactly what I am talking about. Who cares…!? How immature! You have picked up that attitude from such cheap reality shows and soaps.

Hana: No, I’ve picked it up from my gang. From real life. And the shows aren’t cheap.

Grandma: What they offer is trash. Most of these young people have poor education, no higher goals in life and are desperate to do anything stupid or provocative just to be in front of the cameras.

Hana: What do you mean poor education? As far as I know all of them finished some secondary school or even university.

Grandma: Well, that’s just something formal. But what are their ambitions in life? What can you learn from them? Anything about literature? About culture? About anything spiritual?

Just eating, giggling, flirting and fooling around.

Hana: But they talk about normal stuff, like fashion, food, love…

Grandma: What do you mean, love? Those young people usually don’t know the meaning of true love. Where’s the romance here, growing together, sharing of life’s highs and lows, loyalty and the sacrifice in the name of love?

Hana: Oh, Gran, you’re so old-fashioned. And way too critical.

You always use big words like sacrifice, dignity, principles and stuff. That’s so yesterday.

Grandma: Maybe. But, let’s make an experiment. As a teacher I like good films about teachers. Here’s a DVD with my favourite film. It’s DEAD POETS’ SOCIETY. If you want to watch that reality show of yours at my place, watch the film first and then tell me what you think of it. I promise you the film will open a whole new world for you.

7. a) Find the corresponding paraphrase for these words:

1. attitude

2. desperate

3. provocative

4. criteria

5. trash

6. loyalty

7. sacrifice

8. perspective

□ when you do or don’t do something in the name of love or some higher principle

□ a frame of mind, an opinion, a view

□ trying very hard to achieve or avoid something

□ annoying, offensive, challenging, not ordinary

□ a kind of pattern, a standard to judge something

□ angle, a personal view of a situation

□ something unimportant, junk, rubbish

□ a kind of bond you feel with someone, reliability

b) Write at least three paraphrases of your own and challenge the class to guess.

8. a) Choose at least three simple words that you use and three compicated (’big’) ones.

✵ Is there a difference in meaning?

chit-chat, small talk, no clue, ambition, gossip, perspective, criteria, sacrifice, flirting, dignity, education, eating, orientation, principles, gang, fooling around, loyalty, stuff

b) Use at least three simple and three ’big’ words in your own sentences.

’That’ ніколи не вживається з описовим означальним реченням.
