Förord Hello, young Professional Att välja program på gymnasiet är ett av dina viktigaste val. Det kommer att ha stor betydelse för hela ditt yrkesverksamma liv. Att detta program inne­ håller en kurs A i engelska är också viktigt. Det innebär att du får träna upp din engelska för att använda den såväl i ditt yrkesliv som privatliv – i Sverige och förstås utomlands. Att kunna tala och skriva engelska medför alltid stora fördelar. Det betyder att du kan kommunicera med arbetskamrater och kollegor av annan nationalitet, att du kan arbeta utomlands, att du kan läsa manualer, skicka e-post och skriva brev på engelska samt, inte minst, att du kan umgås på ett annat språk! Allt-i-ett-boken Professional består av nio kapitel med en temaintroduktion och en dialog som A-texter samt två lite längre B- och C-texter. Förutom en hel del nyttiga grammatik- och ordövningar finns också några blåfärgade sidor i C-delen, där folk berättar om sina yrken och där du får en allmän inblick i arbetslivet – och dessutom ett vettigt, arbetsnära ordförråd! Fact File är en liten uppslagsdel som förklarar personer , platser m.m. som före­kom­ mer i boken. De är markerade med (F) i texterna så att du vet vad du kan slå upp. I den omfattande alfabetiska ordlistan finns orden från kapitlen – med ljudskrift. Styckeorden står annars i anslutning till varje text. Som du säkert redan märkt finns också en elev-cd i din bok, där du kan lyssna på de flesta av bokens texter. På Bonnier Utbildnings hemsida (www.bonnierutbildning.se/professional) kommer du dessutom att hitta mer material som du kan använda dig av. Lycka till med din engelska! Christer Amnéus

Is There Life on Earth? Introduction 4.6 billion years ago the Earth was born. It started off as a large ball of gases, then became a big fire ball, then a ball of rock and magma. The surface cooled and it became hard. For thousands of years the Earth was bombarded with meteorites. Volcanoes were active and shaped the Earth into what it is today. The first sign of life on Earth is about 3.6 billion years old. After many years the oceans and the first real land continent called Pangea were created. Pangea is today our seven continents. But it took a long time before our forefathers came. It happened in the African savanna about 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. Then they moved to the Old world (Europe) and after that Oceania F 40,000 years ago, and finally the Americas F 10,000 years ago. And just now, some of their children are reading a text about life on Earth – in English. billion  miljard (1000 miljoner) became (av become)  blev rock  här sten magma  magma (smälta bergarter i jordens inre) surface  yta cool  svalna

Visitors from Outer Space

7 Introducing Text B Text B has been translated into English to make it easier to understand. It was originally written in Galaxese, which is spoken on the planet of Granga in outer space. In the story we meet Captain Restrich and Pilot Naftafs. originally  ursprungligen is spoken (av speak)  talas outer space  yttre rymden

Now read text B.

A very, very, very long time ago … – 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4 … Stop, pilot Naftafs! Don’t get too close. – This place looks pretty boring – and ugly! Yuk! Well, it sure isn’t like Star City or trendy Galax Boulevard. – And there’s nothing to see. Just smoke – and no life. And terribly hot! Let’s get out of this place. – All right. The engine’s on! We have take-off. Now, switch on to the same place 4.4 billion years from now. – Ay, ay, Sir. A very long time ago … 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 ... What on earth are those big people with long necks and big teeth? – They look like dangerous dribs (birds in Galaxese) to me. More than 4 sax (1 sax = 2 m) long. I don’t like it here. Yes, it’s very unfriendly. Let’s try again. Take year … 2008. Not long ago … – 3, 2, 1 ... We have landed. Same place, year 2008. That’s better. Let’s switch on the intergalactic transformer first. – It’s on! What does it say? Ah, look at this! There’s a river down there. – And great buildings! And traffic! And people! Funny! They look different. – Wow! There’s a castle too, and a palace, and look at that big wheel. The transformer says that this is Great Britain. The place is called London. There are about ten million inhabitants here. It is a peaceful country with 60 million inhabitants. The fourlegged inhabitants are not people but animals. Animals?! What’s that? – Well, the place looks safe. Shall we have a closer look?

Visitors from Outer Space

7 Introducing Text B Text B has been translated into English to make it easier to understand. It was originally written in Galaxese, which is spoken on the planet of Granga in outer space. In the story we meet Captain Restrich and Pilot Naftafs. originally  ursprungligen is spoken (av speak)  talas outer space  yttre rymden

Now read text B.

A very, very, very long time ago … – 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4 … Stop, pilot Naftafs! Don’t get too close. – This place looks pretty boring – and ugly! Yuk! Well, it sure isn’t like Star City or trendy Galax Boulevard. – And there’s nothing to see. Just smoke – and no life. And terribly hot! Let’s get out of this place. – All right. The engine’s on! We have take-off. Now, switch on to the same place 4.4 billion years from now. – Ay, ay, Sir. A very long time ago … 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 ... What on earth are those big people with long necks and big teeth? – They look like dangerous dribs (birds in Galaxese) to me. More than 4 sax (1 sax = 2 m) long. I don’t like it here. Yes, it’s very unfriendly. Let’s try again. Take year … 2008. Not long ago … – 3, 2, 1 ... We have landed. Same place, year 2008. That’s better. Let’s switch on the intergalactic transformer first. – It’s on! What does it say? Ah, look at this! There’s a river down there. – And great buildings! And traffic! And people! Funny! They look different. – Wow! There’s a castle too, and a palace, and look at that big wheel. The transformer says that this is Great Britain. The place is called London. There are about ten million inhabitants here. It is a peaceful country with 60 million inhabitants. The fourlegged inhabitants are not people but animals. Animals?! What’s that? – Well, the place looks safe. Shall we have a closer look?

Chapter 1  Life and Death  13


The spaceship flew along Oxford Street F, turned right and passed Piccadilly Circus F. Then it headed for Trafalgar Square F and the Houses of Parliament F. Captain Restrich and Pilot Naftafs landed softly on a funny-looking green area next to a large building on the river. The intergalactic transformer told them that this was Parliament Park and “the very big green jungle was a lawn and the enormous skyscraper-like poles with green parts at the top were trees”. Unfortunately it forgot to inform the two Grangians about dogs … Every morning Mrs Emma Beale took her little poodle, Miss Universe, for a walk – as she did this morning. When they came to the end of Parliament Park, the dog ran like mad towards one corner of the park. It sniffed at something, opened its mouth and then swallowed it. No one has ever heard of Captain Restrich or Pilot Naftafs since. Rumour has it that a dog in London sounds like a spaceship when you put your ear to its belly. visitor  besökare pretty boring  rätt trist ugly  ful terribly  hemskt engine  motor take-off  start switch on här ställa om, koppla över neck  hals intergalactic transformer  apparat som  översätter språk castle  borg wheel  hjul inhabitant  invånare peaceful  fridfull

Nine minutes left to live. The Great Southern Railway train has passed Broken Hill a long time ago and is well into New South Wales F. Sarah Costello, member of the world champion team in the Women’s 4 x 100 Metre Freestyle Relay, is reading a magazine in her comfortable seat. The train is on time and she will be in Sydney within nine minutes – in time for the Australian Games. Sarah realizes how lucky she is. Her talent, her swimming team and her journeys, what else can you expect in life! She wouldn’t trade with anyone in the world. Eight minutes left to live. For the last eleven hours and fifty-two minutes Professor Hugh Peterson, the Nobel Prize winner for Medicine, has been sitting on the coach between Melbourne and Sydney on Route 2. He is to attend a conference, where he will talk about a new vaccine that will save thousands of lives all over the world. He has left his wife and his beautiful garden for two days and he is already longing for them. The last year or so he has started spending more time at home. He is getting older and he wants to enjoy life, although his research means a lot to him. Seven minutes left to live. “Edmonton Police Station, Officer Ralston. Can I help you? … A bomb? Where? It’ll go off in seven minutes? Can I have your name, please? Come on, who are you? Hallo! He hung up! He said something about revenge. Sergeant Whyte! Track the call! Speed it up! He sounded serious.” Six minutes left to live. Dave Edison is writing some new lyrics on a piece of paper. He has this wonderful idea about a song. ‘Love is like an open horizon. There’s no beginning, there’s no ending.’ Sarah Costello finds an article about Norway in her magazine. ‘Imagine, going to that beautiful country.’ Hugh Peterson is thinking about his new-born granddaughter in Perth. What a marvellous little child, perfect fingers and brown hair. And those cute little eyes. How wonderful life is!’
