Would you like to learn to rock-climb? Or spend time working at an animal sanctuary? That’s what Andrea Black and Jenny Smith are doing as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award programme. The award encourages young people to do exciting cultural, social and adventure activities in their free time. The Queen’s husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, started the award in 1956. He started it because he wanted young people to learn to help themselves and other people. The award is for people aged 14–25, and there are three levels: Bronze, for those aged 14 or over, Silver for over 15s, and Gold for over 16s. You have to complete four activities to achieve the award: • go on an expedition (e.g. hiking, kayaking or climbing) • learn a new practical or social skill (anything from painting to podcasting!) • take on a physical challenge (e.g. learn or improve at a sport) • do voluntary work, helping people or the environment (e.g. work with disabled or elderly people, or raise money for a charity) Young people usually do the award at a Duke of Edinburgh club at their school or at a local youth group. They decide what they are going to do, and write a plan. It usually takes between one and three years to finish an award.

Read the article. Compare the results of the research with maturalne zadania your ideas from exercise 2.słownictwa oraz
• The best fan to be is a soul fan, because they are creative, confident, outgoing and gentle!
Perhaps the most surprising result was that classical D music fans and heavy metal fans have very similar personalities. People think of heavy metal fans as being very sad and unhappy. But like classical fans, they are in fact easy-going and creative, and not very outgoing.
What does your musical taste say about you? A We often have stereotypical images of rockers as rebellious, classical music fans as quiet and modest, and lovers of rap as talkative and outgoing. But is it really true that our musical tastes show our personality? According to recent research from a university in Edinburgh, it is.
Professor North says that the results explain why so E many people are good friends with people who like the same music. Heavy metal fans in Sweden have more in common with heavy metal fans in Brazil than with, say, Swedish fans of pop.
Professor North, who did research says that people often B express their identity through the kind of music they listen to, the kind of clothes they wear and their hobbies and interests. So it isn’t surprising that people’s taste in music says something about their personality.
The results also explain why some of us are so F passionate about what we listen to, since music is likely to be closely linked to our personality. However, the research doesn’t say what people who listen to lots of different types of music are like. Perhaps they are perfectly balanced! So, what does your music say about you?
The researchers interviewed more than 36,000 people C from around the world, asked them about their musical tastes and gave them personality tests. But did the research show that our stereotypical images are right? Here are some of the results: • Lovers of indie music aren’t very confident, gentle or hard-working, but they are very creative. • Country and western fans are hard-working and not shy. • Rap fans are outgoing and confident. 1 3

Hi! I’m Ross. I’m 17 years old and I’d like to hear from girls of the same age as me. I’m quite a friendly person and rather sensitive. At least I think so! My friends say I’m sometimes slightly impatient and I can be a bit lazy about schoolwork! I like being around really confident people and also people who share the same interests as me. I enjoy outdoor activities. I do a lot of surfing and swimming, and a bit of rockclimbing too. Do you want to chat? Then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

imagination. In Conradin’s lonely, loveless world, his imagination was the only thing that kept him alive. Conradin’s parents were dead and he lived with his aunt. The aunt did not like Conradin and was often unkind to him. Conradin hated her with all his heart, but he obeyed her quietly and took his medicine without arguing. Mostly he kept out of her way. She had no place in his world. His real, everyday life in his aunt’s colourless, comfortless house was narrow and uninteresting. But inside his small, dark head exciting and violent thoughts ran wild. In the bright world of his imagination Conradin was strong and brave. It was a wonderful world, and the aunt was locked out of it. The garden was no fun. There was nothing interesting to do. He was forbidden to pick the flowers. He was forbidden to eat the fruit. He was forbidden to play on the grass. But behind some trees, in a forgotten corner of the garden, there was an old shed. Nobody used the shed, and Conradin took it for his own. To him it became something between a playroom and a church. He filled it with ghosts and animals from his imagination. But there were also two living things in the shed. In one corner lived an old, untidy-looking chicken. Conradin had no people to love, and this chicken was the boy’s dearest friend. And in a dark, secret place at the back of the shed was a large wooden box with bars across the front. This was the home of a very large ferret with long, dangerous teeth and claws. Conradin had bought the ferret and its box from the friendly boy who lived in

1 Conradin’s health was very poor. 2 The boy had a good relationship with his aunt. 3 The boy was forbidden to go into in the garden. 4 A lot of animals lived in the shed. 5 The ferret was a gift from Conradin’s friend. 6 This text is about a boy who uses his imagination to escape from the real world.

Eighteen-year-old Lauren Clark is a student, but she isn’t at university yet. Instead she’s taking a gap year. ‘I decided not to start my maths course immediately. Instead I’m here in Ghana for six months. I’m teaching English and maths to school children. I’m also helping to build the school library. I’m so surprised I can actually do all of this. I’m developing qualities I didn’t know I had. I’m more patient and polite – and I’m certainly not lazy here! I feel more responsible and I think I’m growing up.’ In Europe, taking a gap year is very common. Instead of heading straight to college after school, more and more students take a year off to travel, work, explore special interests or volunteer. ‘Colleges find that students who made this choice are more confident and mature when they arrive and do better on their courses,’ said Dr Edwin Chance, Rector of York University.

A Social psychologist Sam Gosling researches how we ll people can identify other people’s personalities. He re is one of his tests: he shows people a photo of someon e’s bedroom and asks them about that person’s perso nality. He found that people are quite good at reading som eone else’s personality from the ir bedroom or similar clu es. B But when you meet som eone for the first time, wh at is the quickest way of gettin g to know them? What clu es do people use to decide if the y like the person? What is one of the most common quest ions that young people ask ? C Sam thinks the question is, ‘What sort of music do you listen to?’ To test this, Sam gives university students a new Internet friend. Th e students have six weeks to get to know each other. Th en Sam reads all the onlin e conversations. Guess wh at? The students discuss music far more than any other sub ject! D But can people use mu sic to judge personality accurately? Sam asks the students to write a list of their ten favourite songs. Then he gives the lists to other students and asks them to describe the personalities. The results are amazing: The students are brilliant at judging people from their musical choices.

Look, Martha! Jason Mraz is playing in town on Saturday night. Jason Mraz. Wow. I love him. Let’s go. There won’t be any tickets left. Let’s have a look. Oooh! There are tickets left. Shall I book them? It’s £25 for a ticket. £25? Oh. I don’t have enough money for that. Don’t worry. I can pay for you. No, no, no, you can’t … Really. It’s fine. I want to pay for you. I want you to come. I’ll pay you back next month. It’s OK. It’s a present! Hi, Ryan. Hi. Shall we go in? We’re waiting for Emily. Well, where is she? She’s on her way, I’m sure. She’s never on time. … The film starts in fifteen minutes. She’ll be here in a minute. Can you phone her? Why? Tell her to be quick. Let’s wait a bit longer before we call her. We have time. Let’s call her now. No, Ryan. Let’s wait. (Sighs). I’m not looking forward to the maths exam! Aren’t you? I am. I think it’ll be really easy. I’ve definitely got the right kind of brain for maths. I always do well. I read all about it on a website the other day. Do you know about the different types of brain people have? No, I don’t. Some people can think really clearly. They understand things very quickly. They’re good at maths and science. That’s me! Lucky you! I’m really bad at maths.

Having said that, I’m good at most things. I learn things really quickly and I don’t have to do a lot of work. I don’t think I’ll get bad marks in any of the exams.

I don’t know. Five minutes. Mum always tidies my room. Well, you’re old enough to do it yourself. Go and get the vacuum cleaner. Oh Dad! I’m going out in ten minutes. Can you do it? No way! You’re not going out until you’ve tidied your room! Hi Matt. Are you having a good time? Not really. I don’t know anyone here. Do you know Sam? No. Who’s he? She. She lives next door to me. She’s over there. She’s wearing a yellow top. Is she dancing? No, that’s Zoe. Sam’s standing by the door. She isn’t talking to anyone. Do you want me to introduce you? OK. So, are you enjoying the party? Yes, it’s really good. Hey, I like your shoes, Sam. They’re cool. Thanks. They hurt my feet though. That’s why I’m not dancing. You’re wearing trainers. They’re much better for dancing. Hey, you two. Do you want to dance? No, thanks, Alice. Matt, you go ahead and dance. Uh, no thanks. But you love dancing, Matt. Er, yes, but I don’t like Lady Gaga. Really? I love her! Actually, I’m going to see her next month and I’ve got a spare ticket. Do you want to come, Alice? Yes, please!
1.05 Jasmine At the moment, I’m working in an Oxfam shop. Oxfam is a charity that raises money for poor people in developing countries. Working in a charity shop teaches me about real life. I’m learning to deal with the customers, and also to work in a team – with the other people who work in the shop. And I’m learning about the
work that Oxfam does in developing countries and about the lives of people who are much poorer than me. It really makes you think about how lucky you are. I love it. 2 nathan I’m preparing to go on a big hike. Me and two friends are going to walk from one side of Scotland to the other, without using roads. It’ll take about 10 days. Right now we are training for the expedition. Every weekend, we go walking in the hills near my house and sometimes we take a tent and camp. I’m practising how to read maps, how to build a fire – even how to cook. I think I’m becoming a stronger, more confident person. Now I try not to say ‘I can’t do this’ or ‘I can’t do that’. 3 Caitlin
I’m really into fashion, and I love drawing and making things. So I decided to learn how to make clothes. At the moment, I’m learning how to cut material and sew with a machine. Two of my friends are working with me and we’re organising a fashion show for the school. I’ve learned loads of new things: I’m becoming more organised and I’m learning how to work with other people in a team. We feel very grown up and hard-working!
4 Dominic As part of my Duke of Edinburgh award, I’m learning a new sport: rugby. I go to rugby training sessions every Saturday. I wanted to do something that was physically challenging, something that would make me stronger. In the morning, we train indoors – sometimes we do weightlifting in the gym, and sometimes we do keep fit. In the afternoon, we go outside to the field for a couple of hours and play matches, or practise ball skills and tactics. I feel much fitter and stronger, both physically and mentally. I’m thinking of joining a local rugby team when I finish school, so I can keep playing. 1.06 [Clips in different musical styles] 1 blues 2 jazz 3 reggae 4 country 5 indie 6 soul 1.07
What does your musical taste say about you?
We often have stereotypical images of rockers as rebellious, classical music fans as quiet and modest, and lovers of rap as talkative and outgoing. But is it really true that our musical tastes show our personality? According to recent research from a university in Edinburgh, it is. Professor North, who did the research says that people often express their identity through the kind of music they listen go, the kind of clothes they wear and their hobbies and
interests. So, it isn’t surprising tha tpeople’s taste in music says something about their personality. The researchers interviewed more than 36,000 people from around the world, asked them about their musical tastes and gave them personality tests. But did the research show that our stereotypical images are right? Here are some of the results: • Lovers of indie music aren’t very confident, gentle or hardworking, but they are very creative. • Country and western fans are hard-working and not shy. • Rap fans are outgoing and confident. • Fans of pop songs aren’t creative, but are hard-working, gentle and outgoing. • The best fan to be is a soul fan, because they are creative, confident, outgoing and gentle! Perhaps the most surprising result was that classical music fans and heavy metal fans have very similar personalities. People think of heavy metal fans as being very sad and unhappy. But like classical fans, they are in fact easy-going and creative, and not very outgoing. Professor North says that the results explain why so many people are good friends with people who like the same music. Heavy metal fans in Sweden have more in common with heavy metal fans in Brazil than with, say, Swedish fans of pop. The results also explain why some of us are so passionate about what we listen to, since music is likely to be closely linked to our personality. However, the research doesn’t say what people who listen to lots of different types of music are like. Perhaps they are perfectly balanced! So, what does your music say about you? 1.08

Hi. Do you fancy doing something on Saturday? Sure. Why don’t we go out? Good idea. There’s a heavy metal band playing at the concert hall on Saturday. I’m really not into heavy metal. I know. But guess who the drummer is in the band? Who? Mr Smithson. You know, the music teacher at our school a few years ago. OK, then. Let’s go and see his band. Cool. How much are the tickets? I’ve got the information here … Between ten and fifteen pounds. Oh. That’s quite a lot of money. Oh, wait a moment. It’s only five pounds for students. Great. Shall we invite Jack and Martha? Jack’s away this weekend. I’d prefer to go with just you, really. You know I’m not very keen on Martha. She’s so talkative! OK, just you and me then. And what do you want to do after the film? Shall we get something to eat in town? No, let’s come back home. We can get a take-away. OK, then. Sounds good.

Workbook transcript 1.1 1 Terry I love going out with my Uncle Harry. He always pays for everybody. He just enjoys spending money! He’s so different from his brother (that’s my dad, of course). The only problem with Harry is that he can be rather impolite. He isn’t very sensitive and doesn’t think before he speaks. The other day he really upset my dad when he told him he was mean. 2 Julie My mum’s amazing, really. She never loses her temper, she just stays really calm. She’s got four children (me, my brother and my two sisters) and has to ask us to do things ten or twenty times before we actually do them – but she doesn’t get angry. She also works full-time at the supermarket and doesn’t get home till 6 o’clock. I don’t know how she fits it all in. She never stops! 3 Martin My sister and I have completely different personalities. I like meeting new people and am happy to chat to people I don’t know – at parties, for example. But Sonia feels a bit nervous in situations like that. She waits for people to come to her. But when she gets to know you and starts talking she really makes you laugh. 4 Emma We’re twins, but we aren’t identical. We don’t look alike, and our personalities aren’t alike, either. For example, I don’t say very much, normally. I’m fairly quiet. Louise is the complete opposite. She never stops! But she doesn’t talk about herself. Last summer for example she got fantastic marks in her exams but you never hear her talking about it.
Lesson C 1.2 1 Daniel I’m having an amazing time here in the Brazilian rainforest. We arrived from Macapau two weeks ago. There are ten students and we are staying with families in the village. We’re helping to build a new school. And we’re trying to study Portuguese, but it isn’t easy! 2 Christine I’m here in Cape Town, South Africa. I’m staying with my aunt and uncle. I’m working at a school in one of the townships outside the city. I teach English to young children. They are very poor, but they are always laughing. It’s hard work, but the children are wonderful. 3 Thomas I live in London and I’m working in an old people’s home in the city centre. There are fifty people living here. Some of them are quite sick.
