You can form new adjectives by adding under (not enough) or over (too much) to a Past Participle. ➤ I’m underpaid = I don’t earn enough money; ➤ I’m overworked = I have too much work. They can also be used to form verbs— to oversleep, to overeat, to underachieve. Another way to say you don’t have enough of something is (a) lack of (respect, interest, ideas…).

I’m a single mother. For me, it’s lack of support from my son’s father.

I had a terrific day today. I went to bed early last night, so got up early and went to the gym for an hour and then had an omelet for breakfast at home. Much better than the donut that I usually eat at the office! Got to work on time and made a plan of what I needed to do all day. I also had a chat with my boss about my schedule and she agreed to let me work from home two days a week! I finished all the things that I had to do today and then had a home-cooked dinner with my family. I’m finally taking control of my life. Thank you! By MyVeryBest

10.6 Read the movie review and choose the best title in the tabs.

The Influence of Money

Living without Money

A Weird Woman

is about Heidemarie Schwermer, a German woman who decided to start living a very different kind of life about 14 years ago. At that time, she left her apartment and gave away all of her things except a suitcase full of clothes. This was a decision that changed her life dramatically. She has no possessions, no place to live and no way to buy the things she needs. The film follows Heidemarie in her day-to-day life and shows what it’s like to live an alternative lifestyle. Heidemarie is constantly on the move, meeting new people, staying with old and new friends for a few nights. In addition to showing the daily problems she faces, we hear about Heidemarie’s philosophy and why she has chosen to live this way. We see that it is not easy for her to have no money in a society where everything is based on money. People often have strong opinions about how she lives. Some call her a “parasite” while others see her as an “inspiration.” Today, she still doesn’t use money and says she feels more free and independent than ever. She travels all around Germany, and she often also visits Austria, Switzerland and Italy. She tells people about her experiences and tries to convey the message that a simpler way of life is possible. This is a fascinating documentary for people who are interested in the themes of materialism and consumerism and how money influences our way of thinking and living.


Re-read the review more carefully. True (T), false (F) or not mentioned (N)?

4 It’s easy to live this kind of lifestyle. 5 She gets paid for sharing her ideas. 6 All audiences will enjoy this movie.

1 Her new lifestyle is similar to her old one. 2 She still travels and moves around a lot. 3 She sometimes stays with strangers.


MAKE IT PERSONAL Would you like to see this movie? Why (not)? Is Heidemarie a parasite or an inspiration?

Yes, I’d like to see the movie, ’cos I want to know how she can live without using money.

I don’t think she’s a parasite, for me she’s a very lucky person. Most people need to work to get money to live.

Listening is difficult in any language. We only remember between 25-50% of what we hear, and when it’s a foreign language, understanding 10% is a success. So when you’re listening, try to concentrate on general meaning, not specific words.

You don’t understand

You read slowly

Vicious Circle Diagram

You don’t want to read

You don’t enjoy reading

The key is to read faster. Here’s why it’s important. The average reading speed of a child in elementary school is around 200 words per minute (wpm). For adults, it’s about 250300 wpm. Contestants at the World Championship speed reading competitions can reach 1000-1200 wpm! To be an excellent reader, a goal of 500-800 wpm is ideal. This will allow you to read a lot of information in a short time and still understand most of what you are reading. Reading in a second language is different, because, of course, you won’t immediately understand a lot of the words that you read. This means that you don’t understand what you read, you read slower, and so you don’t enjoy reading, which then means you don’t read much. It’s a vicious circle, one Reading speed which makes it difficult to improve Elementary school student wpm your reading speed, because you Average adult wpm need to practice more to read faster World champion speed reader wpm and you also need to read faster wpm An excellent reader A second language reader wpm to understand more. Many second language readers read at 100 wpm or less. You really need to read at a speed of at least 200 wpm.

Read World of English in a minute. Do you do any of these things?


Do you like reading in: a) your first language? b) English? Why (not)? I really like reading the news online in my language, but when I read in English there’s a lot I don’t understand, so I get frustrated quickly.


Here are a few tips to help you to read in English. 1 Try to read things you’re interested in and you know something about already. If you don’t enjoy reading, you won’t do it. 2 Read something in your language and then try to read it in English. 3 Make sure longer texts aren’t too difficult. If you don’t understand more than about eight words per paragraph, choose another text before you get frustrated. 4 Use English subtitles when you watch movies in English. This helps your listening, pronunciation and spelling too.

10.15 Listen and complete Dr. Marshall’s tips. 1 Give yourself minute to read an article. Get as far as you can. Do this times. 2 Read the same article as many times as you can in minutes. 3 Read at the same speed as your class. Read an article of words in seconds. 4 Use an alarm to help you.

Middle class Peruvians, families that on average US$550 a month, can their money at Topitop and still have enough money to a movie ticket.


Aquilino Flores was born in poverty, high up in the Andes mountains. He was 12 when he left home and traveled to Lima, the capital of Peru, to work, and his first job there was washing cars. He earned just enough money to live and nothing more, but Aquilino was a good worker and a friendly guy, and one day one of his customers suggested that he sell T-shirts. The man gave Aquilino 20 T-shirts and he sold them in one day. That is how Aquilino Flores started in the fashion industry.


Now his company, Topitop, is the largest clothes producer in Peru and makes over US$275 million a year. The company has stores all over Peru, as well as Venezuela, and also exports clothes to Brazil, Europe and the USA, where the clothes are sold as Hugo Boss, North Face and other famous and expensive brand names.

World of English Slang is very informal spoken language used by specific groups of people, and the words change over time. E.g., I’m psyched means I’m excited in current American English. Be careful using slang since some people may not understand you, and some words are considered vulgar and only appropriate in some situations.

“I live in New York City, where I think it’s pretty common to pick up trashed furniture or electronics, because people here just leave that stuff on the sidewalk for you to grab. And when you’re on your way home and you walk by a perfectly good piece of furniture that you can use, why not just scoop it up and schlep it back to your abode?” “I’m psyched!” 51

The taxi drove downtown and Nick looked at the low gray building. Has it really been twenty years since he was last here? Through the double doors, everything was exactly as he remembered it, although a little smaller now, and strangely quieter. The Principal’s office was on the right, next to the nurse’s room. He turned left and followed the signs: “Class of ’93 Reunion.” 1 What is the low gray building? He found the gym and waited in the doorway watching the middle-aged people standing in uncomfortable groups of 4, 5 or 6. Who did he remember? That tall man holding two glasses of orange cocktail in his big hands, and drinking from both, must be Jed, the football star. The girls loved him, almost as much as he loved himself. 2 Why should Nick remember the middle-aged people?

Nick picked up a glass of orange cocktail from the table and walked slowly around the room, trying hard to remember faces. The cocktail had a sour, toxic taste. “Nick, is that you?” said a quiet voice. Turning, he saw a small man in an expensive suit, his blue eyes behind thick glasses. Marcus! Nick smiled, happy to see a face that he knew and happy also that the quiet, shy, hardworking kid was now apparently a successful adult. 3 Why does Nick think that Marcus is successful?

“Nick, I have to go now,” said Marcus. “You were always so kind to me, but I don’t think we’ll meet again.” He paused and then added “And Nick, don’t drink any more of that cocktail.” 6 What do you think Marcus did to Jed's cocktail?

10.9 Add one or ones in three places in each dialog. Listen to check.

I’d like to buy some shoes. Salesperson Of course. Which would you like to try? Customer

I like the black in the window.

Salesperson Certainly. What size are you? Customer

I’m a 13.

Salesperson Ah. I’m afraid we don’t have size 13, but our other store might have them. The next to the movie theater.

“Isn’t that cocktail awful? Try this,” said Marcus as he replaced Nick’s glass. Nick took the beer and the two started talking. Nick was divorced and working in a hotel, Marcus was unmarried and working for a pharmaceutical company. Suddenly a loud voice: “Well, little mouse Marcus… squeak, squeak!” and a massive hand hit Marcus in the back. For a second, Marcus’s face showed terror, then anger, before returning to calm. 4 Who do you think hit Marcus? “Jed?” said Marcus. Suddenly Nick remembered the horrible names, the broken glasses, the physical and mental torture that was Marcus’s life and Jed’s amusement for four years of adolescent prison. “Of course it is. I’ll be back to talk with you later, Mouse.” said Jed, pressing Marcus’s glasses with his finger. As Jed walked away laughing, Marcus watched him, his eyes burning with anger. 5 How does Marcus feel about Jed?
