C CONSOLIDATION OUT AND ABOUT Voice over Spain in the 1950s. The Underground. An Underground Platform. Few people speak English in Spain. In the street, you can’t see words in English. At school, pupils learn French. In Europe, French is the international language. But there are some English words in Spanish. They come from English sports: tennis, set. This is Santana. Football, corner, goal. At the beginning of the 1960s, some Spanish families had a television set. Television introduced new people, new ideologies. Some Spanish groups sang in English. And through music, many words came into Spanish: long play, single, hi-fi. Then tourists from all parts of Europe and America started arriving on our beaches. Not all of them were British, but they spoke English. So, to speak to them, Spaniards started learning English. These are video games of the 1990s. Of course, they’re in English but Spanish children know them and can understand them. In the 1990s many scientific and technical words are in English. Now, Spanish people use words such as PC or personal computer, bits, video-clips or zapping. And our
streets are full of English words. English is the international language of our days. PLAY IT AGAIN

Terraces had a ground floor with a highly decorated front door in Neo-classical style, a first floor with high ceilings, where the owners had their rooms and one or two smaller floors. Servants lived in the basement or in the attic. The industrial revolution increased pollution in cities and the middle classes wanted to return to the countryside. Lots of people went to live in the suburbs. First they lived in rows of houses, then in houses in groups of two, or semi-detached.

OUT AND ABOUT Voice over Brighton is a traditional place to go on holiday. It became fashionable in the eighteenth century. The most important building in Brighton is the Royal Pavilion. It’s an extravagant place with a mixture of Indian and Chinese styles. Very near the Pavilion is the Palace Pier. People come here for a walk or to enjoy the funfair attractions. But the British go to Brighton for the sun. Travel agencies say it is the place with the best weather in the United Kingdom. A perfect slogan for its three million yearly visitors. In the Highlands you can appreciate the Scottish character and their culture. The Highlands scenery is probably the most beautiful in the United Kingdom. The Highlands offer lots of attractions to visitors. Perhaps that is the reason why it is Queen Elizabeth’s favourite holiday region. And everywhere green grass and blue waters. In the Highlands there are many “lochs” or lakes. The most famous is Loch Ness. They say that Nessie, the monster, lives here. By the lake there’s a Nessie museum. We don’t know if the monster exists, but Nessie attracts thousands of tourists each year. Why don’t you come too? PLAY IT AGAIN Richard What’s that? Jane It’s a brochure.

At a surgery there are usually some doctors. Each person can choose a doctor, or GP – General Practitioner, in the area where they live. The National Health Service pays doctors for the number of patients on their lists. Surgeries offer some emergency treatment and general medical care for adults and children. Most of the services are free or they are financed partly by the National Health Service. There are also private doctors, like the famous specialists in Harley Street, London. They look after patients from all parts of the world – rich patients, of course. Doctor Hello. Ana Hello. Gustavo Hello. Doctor Miss Rayo, you’re not English. Ana No, I’m Spanish.

Voice over In the UK people drive on the left-hand side of the road and overtake on the right-hand side. That’s why British cars have the steering wheel on the right side. Learners can drive without a driving license, but they must be accompanied by an experienced driver. They have to carry an ‘L’ sign on the back of the car. It means ‘Learner’. At junctions, the right of way is regulated by signs such as ‘Give Way’ and ‘Stop’. There are two kinds of pedestrian crossings. This is a zebra crossing. There are white and black stripes on the road and flashing orange light. Spanish pedestrians, be careful when you cross a road. Look in the right direction. A zig-zagging white line means you mustn’t park near a pedestrian crossing. Parking spaces are regulated by parking meters and are controlled by parking wardens. Parking is a real problem in big cities. This is a roundabout. On a roundabout, cars travel clockwise. Cars on a roundabout have the right of way. The United Kingdom has a good network of roads and motorways. All motorways are free. The speed limit on a motorway is 60 miles an hour, about 110 kilometres an hour. In towns, the speed limit is 30 miles an hour. A final piece of advice: be careful where you park your car. It’s very easy to get a ticket! PLAT IT AGAIN Man Ready? I’ve been waiting for an hour.
