CreepyPastaKitty Apart from hanging out with friends and watching TV etc, my hobbies are: taekwondo, watching documentaries and experiencing new things. We sometimes go to a museum but I also have a lot of fun when we go shopping. That is something I do with my mother and sister. I like going for walks in the country, especially near my home village. My father and brothers also go horse riding. I play Pokemon, especially when I’m up for a challenge.

STRATEGY

HOW TO study vocabulary and grammar

LEARNING FROM CONTEXT Word fields Group words together that belong to the same word field: e.g. outdoor hobbies vs indoor hobbies Make a word list, a word web, an image list ...

Look up unfamiliar words: make sure you understand the definitions of all your new words.

si

Look for examples: do a simple online search and you will see the word in many different examples or contexts.

e

Understand the definition

er

LEARNING FROM REPETITION

fv

Write individual words down or use the words in your own sentences.

oe

Use flash cards. They are an easy way to review your vocabulary and to separate words into different categories.

Read through your list or look through your word webs. Cover up one half and go through the other half.

Pr

Say the word out loud a few times. You can even record yourself or explain the words to other people. Keep the (difficult) words visible: write them on sticky notes and hang them around your room.

LEARNING BY USING MEMORY TRICKS Visual memory? Draw a picture. Auditory memory? Replace the words in a song.

Seventh grade can be overwhelming for a lot of kids. It was for me, and still is. You know the feeling you get when you’re dreading going to your next class? You know when your stomach clenches into a little ball? Well, you won’t get that feeling going into Mrs. Trumbo’s classroom. Mrs. Trumbo doesn’t make her classroom feel like an old school classroom. You’ll want to run to Mrs. Trumbo’s classroom. That’s how fun and exciting she is. She is organized but at the same time she isn’t, and that’s what I like about her classroom. Mrs. Trumbo teaches reading and maths at South Junior High. She keeps the classroom alert and active. She lays down the law, but at the same time I can see she loves what she does for a living. I can relate to Mrs. Trumbo very well, which makes it a lot easier for me to learn in her classroom. When I look at Mrs. Trumbo I see a lot of actions and stuff I would do as a person. For example, she wears some interesting outfits. One day she will wear a big pendant on her neck with a shirt and matching pants. Another day she will wear just plain shorts and a patterned shirt with tennis shoes. I really liked one of her outfits when she wore a brown skirt down to her knees, with a wavy shirt and a decorative belt. I can really say she knows style. For a teacher that is pretty uncommon! Every day I look forward to seeing what she wears the next day, so I can get some new ideas for myself. The first day of school, I just knew Mrs. Trumbo was a magnificent teacher. I’m generally a lazy person, but what kid isn’t? The first week of school I was losing my grip on things. Mrs. Trumbo was the only teacher that didn’t let me. She gave me the impression that she can be really fun, but when it comes down to it she wants stuff to be done. Correctly and properly, that is. Mrs. Trumbo is teaching me a lot and I love being in her class. I’m sure other kids do too. She should win because she brings joy to South Junior High, and makes life interesting. She’s a great lady and deserves this award. There is so much more to Mrs. Trumbo, but there isn’t enough time in this world for me to say everything!

What are Some Hobbies that Teens are Interested in? BY CHERYL STEPHENSON-HEARNS

5

10

Music Teens can enjoy music as a hobby in a number of ways. They can relax by listening to music or they can benefit intellectually by learning how to play an instrument. Teens can show their musical talents in school or community bands and choirs. If the teen is tech-savvy, computer programs allow users to create music recordings and mixes.

e

Hobbies have many mental and physical health benefits, including more optimism, higher creativity and a better ability to deal with stress. Sharing hobbies with others also keeps teens socially engaged with people who have similar interests. Teens can be interested in almost unlimited hobbies. Here are some possible hobbies.

1

Social causes Teens who want to make a difference in their communities can volunteer in hospitals, animal shelters, libraries and museums. Teens also have the option of taking part in ‘voluntours’, planned trips to exotic locations where they can view the sites while volunteering, for example, to teach English or to build homes and schools.

Pr

fv

20

The arts Some teens enjoy unwinding with a good book. The fantasy genre has become very popular in recent years. Other teens prefer to express themselves through creative art, spending time drawing, painting or sculpting. And what do you think about making jewellery or doing scrapbooking, or car modelling, cooking and baking? For those teens with a dramatic flair, there are often opportunities to act, sing or dance in theatre productions.

oe

15

er

si

Sports Teens have many choices when it comes to activities. Indoor activities include gym memberships, yoga and dance classes. Outdoor activities range from skiing and snowboarding in winter to sailing and skateboarding in summer. Teens can also choose to participate in traditional team sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball and hockey. For non-traditionalists, they can join an ultimate frisbee or paintball team.

30

to be tech-savvy: knowing a lot about modern technology, especially computers to benefit: to be helped by someone an opportunity: a chance to unwind: to relax

Technology The technology available to teens gives them unlimited options for hobbies. Teens can create and maintain a blog or a vlog on a topic that interests them. They can also play video games, use social networking sites and even build robots and write programs to make them run. The Internet provides a world of opportunities for teens without even leaving their bedrooms.

Feather Friend Just like you, I enjoy walking too. I prefer walking in places where there’s water, like the beach or the river, or even in the rain. I love taking photos, particularly of birds. I wish I had a better camera. AAO I spend time sleeping and nothing else. I’m sure it’s not productive, but I enjoy it.

CreepyPastaKitty Apart from hanging out with friends and watching TV etc, my hobbies are: taekwondo, watching documentaries and experiencing new things. We sometimes go to a museum but I also have a lot of fun when we go shopping. That is something I do with my mother and sister. I like going for walks in the country, especially near my home village. My father and brothers also go horse riding. I play Pokemon, especially when I’m up for a challenge.

Ashley always has a busy schedule. Every weekday she gets up at 6:00 a.m. and feeds her cat. She always carries the cat downstairs and lets it out. Then she takes a shower and gets dressed. She has breakfast at 6:45 a.m. She loves cornflakes. She always fills an extra large bowl and adds some cold milk. After breakfast, she goes to the bathroom and brushes her teeth, dries and checks her hair again and again and again … , puts on some make-up and adds the finishing touch, perfume. Jamal hates it when she does that. She always uses too much! At 7:30 a.m. she leaves home to take the bus to school. The trip takes thirty minutes. At the bus stop she meets up with her best friends and then they have to walk for another five minutes. School starts at 8:30 a.m. Ashley isn’t that fond of school, but she doesn’t hate it either. At least her friends are there with her. School ends at 3:30 p.m. She takes the bus and arrives home at 4:20 p.m. That’s when the fun starts. Every Monday she goes dancing. Every Tuesday she goes horse riding, and on Wednesdays she plays tennis and has another dance class. Thursday is a day with nothing to do but to take extra good care of her cat. And on Fridays she gets together with some friends and talks about everything, especially boys. Most of the time she has dinner around 7:00 p.m., then she does homework, watches some TV and goes to bed at 10:00 p.m. On Saturdays she often has a competition with her dance crew; she wants to become a professional dancer. If there isn’t a competition, she goes out in the evening. Sunday is a quiet day. She just relaxes, does some work for school, plays with her cat and checks her social network sites.

Making games for a living is often seen as a dream job and, in my experience, it’s that and more! For the past 5+ years, I have been designing and developing video games from my home in Brisbane, Australia. This is my day as a professional game developer.

97


6:00 a.m. That’s more like it – 6:00 a.m. – I’m awake! The sun is rising over the city, and I always take a moment to appreciate the amazing view from my high-rise apartment. I’m much more productive when I start my workday early. I usually make a strong coffee then head straight to my desk to check my email.

7:00 a.m. By now, I have answered my most important emails and can start thinking about how the rest of my day will look.

7:30 a.m. Next, I skim news sites, forums, and answer questions from my 20,000+ social media followers.

si

After about 2 hours of light work, it’s time for breakfast. I usually have organic muesli, soy milk, fruit, and more coffee. I don’t like working when I eat, but I also don’t have space for a dining table in my apartment, so I often have breakfast at my desk.

Twice a week, I have an online meeting with my team at 9:00 a.m. During this meeting I get updates about our active projects, I test the latest games, and I give feedback. If it’s a day without a team meeting, I usually exercise or go for a walk around the city.

10:00 a.m.

This is when the real work starts. I’m fully awake and in my best mental state. Most of my work from now until 1:00 p.m. involves designing, coding, and testing new games.

Time for lunch. I usually have a salad wrap and fries while catching up on a TV show. Sometimes, I finish my day here if I feel like I have been productive enough.

2:00 p.m.

I like to wind down in the afternoon with light work. This is when I do tasks like blogging, research, organization and planning.

5:00 p.m.

Pr

I finish work at 5:00 p.m. if it’s a normal day. Sometimes I work late (7:00 p.m.) or very late (9:00 p.m.) if the work is interesting or I try to finish up a blog post.

6:00 p.m.

From this point onwards, I just want to relax and avoid work for the rest of the night. I have dinner, watch TV or a good movie, and maybe play some Xbox with friends.

10:00 p.m.

Due to the difference in time zones, I often write emails or talk with clients/partners on Skype late into the evening. My evening is their morning.

10:30 p.m. Then … it’s time to get 8 hours of sleep and do it all again! So, that is a day in the life of a game developer. Thanks for reading! ninety-eight

er

2  (who / to be / he?) He is our favourite Minecraft YouTuber! But he’s much more than just a blockhead. Here’s everything you want to know about Dan, his channel, his wife, and loads more!

Pr

5   (where / DanTDM’s nickname / to come from) It’s a mix of his real name and the name of his YouTube channel. Put ‘Daniel Middleton’ and ‘The Diamond Minecart’ together and you get ‘DanTDM’. He really loves his nickname. 6  Dan’s birthday is on 8 November.

(when / to celebrate / his birthday?)

7  (to have / brothers or sisters?) Yes, he does. He has a younger brother. He says his brother was his best friend growing up because they moved around a lot and both love video games. They started a band together in high school, and his brother first introduced him to Minecraft. Bonus fact: other YouTubers sometimes pretend to be Dan’s brother – even Dan himself!

one hundred and three

8   (why / to be / Dan’s hair blue?) Dan has dyed his hair many colours, from blonde to purple to turquoise. His hair is now pink and blue, because when he tweeted saying ‘5,000 LIKES and I’ll dye my hair Pink and Blue tomorrow’ he got 2,063 likes in 17 minutes!

Hollywood’s strange hobbies

Tom Hanks: Typewriters Tom Hanks’ quirky hobby is actually pretty cool. The actor collects antique manual typewriters. ‘I have almost 200 old portable manual typewriters,’ he revealed during an interview. ‘Most of them are actually working and I keep them rotating.’

Angelina Jolie: Antique daggers Beautiful, smart and dangerous? Angelina Jolie is certainly all three, but make sure you don’t mess with the mother of six. She collects first edition books and antique daggers.

Johnny Depp: Barbie dolls Johnny Depp loves playing with Barbie dolls. Yes, you read that correctly. The actor says he ­picked up the hobby when his kids were young. Don’t worry, Depp fans … your idol is still kind of strange. He also collects pig skeletons for fun.

Katie Holmes: Arts & crafts When she isn’t acting, Katie Holmes loves to do crafts with her daughter Suri, and also teaches the fashionable little one how to sew. ‘I like to do things like that with my daughter,’ she says.

25

Mila Kunis: Video games Mila Kunis really is every guy’s dream girl. She is beautiful, smart and obsessed with video games. The Black Swan actress once told Jimmy Kimmel that, among other geeky interests (including all things ‘Star Trek’), she is an avid World of Warcraft gamer.

Seth Meyers: Comic books It doesn’t come as a huge surprise that SNL funny guy Seth Meyers is a geek. The actor’s favourite hobby is reading and collecting comic books. ‘I read and buy a lot of comic books,’ he told People magazine. ‘I’m a long-time X-Men fan. I’d love to say I buy them for aging value, but I mostly buy them to read.’

Will Smith, Tom Cruise and David Beckham: Fencing In an interview with Britain’s Daily Mirror, actor Will Smith revealed that he, Tom Cruise and David Beckham share a hobby. ‘We’ve got to watch our joints,’ Smith said. ‘Especially my knee.’ That is one fencing team we wouldn’t mind joining.

aging: growing old avid: enthousiastic, keen a geek: weird quirkiest: weirdest quirky: weird value: worth, what you should pay for it

Ben Stiller: ‘Star Trek’ Calling all Trekkies: Ben Stiller is one of you! The actor admits that he is a giant fan of all things ‘Star Trek.’ He revealed that his obsession began as a child and has followed him into adulthood.

Chris Brown: Dog breeding Chris Brown sells American pit bull terriers for $1,000 each through a website called CB Breeds. The dogs come with a health guarantee and a ‘four generation pedigree’. Animal activists call Brown a ‘backyard breeder’ and want him to use his celebrity to promote animal adoption.

14 Boxing Day is the day after Christmas day. It is a bank holiday in the UK. There are a few theories as to why it’s called ‘Boxing Day’ but no one is completely sure: * In Britain ‘Christmas Box’ was a name for a Christmas present. Boxing Day was a day off for servants when they received a ‘Christmas Box’ from the master. * A box to collect money for the poor was placed in churches on Christmas day. The money was a bonfire: a large open-air fire used for burning distributed the next day. ‘Boxing Day’ could rubbish or as part of a celebration have been named after this custom. a pagan: a person holding religious beliefs other Today there are no traditional Boxing Day than those of the main world religions customs. Most people spend the day eating patriotic: loving your country the Christmas leftovers and maybe going for a a shamrock: a very small plant with 3 leaves walk or visiting friends and family.

In English ‘they’, ‘their’ and ‘theirs’ sometimes refer to the singular. It replaces ’he’ and ’she’ when we do not know the gender of the antecedent – the word the pronoun refers to – or when this is not important or non-binary. ‘They’, ‘their’ and ‘theirs’ are often used as gender-neutral words. This is nothing new. In fact, the Oxford English Dictionary mentions that singular ’they‘ already existed in 1375, where it appears in the medieval romance William and the Werewolf.

SUMMARY Possessive pronouns and adjectives and the genitive form

No, that’s Milo. It’s his. Milo is Jack’s best friend.

Milo is my dog. I love him. He’s mine!

oe

si

e

Is that your dog?

GRAMMAR

HOW TO express possession

In English we can express possession with personal pronouns and with the genitive. PERSONAL PRONOUNS Possessive adjective

Possessive pronoun

I love

my dog Milo.

He’s mine.

You love

your dog Milo.

He’s yours.

He loves She loves It is showing

his dog Milo. her dog Milo. its teeth.

He’s his. He’s hers. /

We love

our dog Milo.

He’s ours.

You love

your dog Milo.

He’s yours.

They love

their dog Milo.

He’s theirs.

Keep in mind: – Possessive adjectives are always used in combination with a noun: e.g. my mother, your family tree, his wife, her brother, its name, our father, their children – Possessive pronouns are never used in combination with a noun. e.g. Is this my schoolbag? No, it’s not yours. It’s mine. It’s not yours schoolbag. It’s mine schoolbag.

UNIT 5:

  W HO'S W HO?

one hundred and eighty-seven

Pr

Subject pronoun

187


THE GENITIVE FORM We use the genitive ’s to express possession (of nouns). This ’s is preceded by an apostrophe, e.g. Romy’s mother. Type of word

Rule:

Example

Singular nouns

+ ‘s

My teacher’s name is Miss Jones.

Plural nouns and words ending in -s

+‘

My grandparents’ only son

Names ending in -s – Most names – Classical or religious names

+ ‘s +‘

Charles’s friend. Jesus’ name.

Irregular plural nouns

+ ‘s

The children’s parents

Pr

oe

fv

er

si

e

Keep in mind: – If there are multiple nouns, add ’s only to the last noun. e.g. Peter and John’s mother is a teacher. – An apostrophe is never used to make the plural of a noun in English!

How to Find a Talent 1

5

It’s time to rethink talent. Talents may be artistic or technical, mental or physical, personal or social. You can be a talented introvert or a talented extrovert. Your talents don’t have to make you rich, don’t have to be useful, or ‘normal’, but they will always be your own, a part of what makes you into you. 1  Stop waiting for talents to appear.

e

si

15

2  Try things that are easy.

What comes naturally to you? What do you do without thinking? What do you love? If you love to spend all day doodling, reading, or dancing, there’s no point in wasting time wishing you had a talent for baking. Focus on the talents you do have by focusing on what comes easiest to you. If you’re in school, what homework comes most easily to you? Those subjects might be some of your natural talents. Pay attention to what other people might have noticed about you. Often other people can spot your talents better than you do yourself. Ask your family, your friends, and your teachers to help you figure out what you make look easy.

You can’t know if you’ve got a talent for guitar if you never try to play the guitar. The same is true for all other things, like singing, knitting, riding a unicycle ... Find a talent that seems cool and learn everything you can about it. Find out what it takes and see what you’ve got. If you never try, you’ll never know. You’re not going to find a talent without trying. You can only find your natural abilities, skills, and talents when you test them out and look for new experiences. Make it your goal to try something new every week. You might not discover something that you’re super-talented at, but maybe you pick up a guitar one day and find out it feels comfortable in your hands and decide to learn more. Maybe you discover an ability to connect with animals at the shelter, something you’d never experienced before. Maybe you learn you’re great at playing computer games. That’s the start of talent. Get outside and scrape your knees. Go on adventures, try out different sports, outdoor hobbies like fishing, hiking, and climbing to see if you’ve got a natural ability or an instinct for it.

3  Try things that are hard.

35

Does the stage frighten you, or maybe public speaking? Writing a story and finishing it? Grab the mic and put pen to paper. Do what scares you. What would you love to be naturally good at? Give it a try and see if it really is as hard as it seems. James Earl Jones, the voice of Darth Vader, suffered from terrible stuttering as a child. He was terrified of speaking in class and only learned to speak properly by facing his fear. Now, he’s famous as one of the most talented voice actors in the world. 4  Follow your obsessions.

40 two hundred and fifty

250

What are other people tired of hearing you talk about? What can you do all day long? Use the things you’re obsessed with to discover abilities and talents that you might be hiding. Even if you’re obsessed with something that’s hard to connect to a talent, like watching television or movies, give yourself some credit. Maybe you have a talent for telling stories, or analysing them. Channel that obsession into learning about film history and learning how movies are made. You might become a famous film director one day.

UNIT 7:

  I'VE GOT TALENT!


45

50

5  Keep track of little successes. If you’re feeling talentless, maybe it’s because you’ve been missing out on your own successes. Try to pay close attention to successes, little and big, to find things for which you have a natural talent. Think creatively about how these little successes might be linked to bigger talents and abilities. Maybe you’ve just thrown a super party. Might not sound like a talent, but if you’ve got the people skills, the planning, and the organisation abilities necessary to pull it off, celebrate that as a success. Maybe you have leadership talents and management skills that will prove useful later on. 6  Ignore the television. 

e

55

Shows like ‘American Idol’ and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ have very narrow definitions of what it means to be talented. If you’re not an attractive young person with a loud, showy singing voice, these shows all make people believe they’re untalented. It’s not true. Being talented doesn’t mean being famous, being attractive, or being some kind of performer. It means dedication, creative thinking, and attention to detail. It means you have a big curiosity to develop some of your abilities into skills. You’ve just got to find them. Adapted from: https://www.wikihow.com

Skimming and scanning a text

Skimming and scanning are two types of quick reading techniques, but they have different purposes.

er

Skimming is looking through a text quickly to get the general idea. For example, if you want to know what is going on in the news, you skim through a newspaper or news website. You will only read the titles, introductions and conclusions. You won’t know the details, but you will know the main points.

Scanning is used to look up information or a detail in a text. For example, to look up the word ‘valuable’ in the dictionary, you don’t start at the letter A and read every word. The most efficient way is to turn to the letter V and then find the words beginning with va-. Scanning is the reading technique you use if you want specific information.

Who is J.K. Rowling? Joanne Rowling (born July 31, 1965), who goes by the pen name J.K. Rowling, is a British author and screenwriter best known for her seven-book Harry Potter children’s book series.  J.K. Rowling was living in Edinburgh, Scotland, and struggling to get by as a single mum before her first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, was published.

J.K. Rowling is the creator of the ‘Harry Potter’ fantasy series, one of the most popular book and film franchises in history.

According to Bloomberg News, Rowling said ‘I had hoped to keep this secret a little longer, because being Robert Galbraith has been such a liberating experience. It has been wonderful to publish without hype or expectation, and pure pleasure to get feedback under a different name.’

‘Cuckoo Calling,’ ‘The Silkworm,’ ‘Career of Evil,’ and ‘Lethal White’ In April 2013, Rowling broke into a new genre, crime fiction, with a novel she published under the pen name Robert Galbraith. In its first few months of release, the novel had modest sales and received positive reviews. Sales for the work skyrocketed in July when its author’s identity was discovered.

Husband and children On December 26, 2001, J.K. Rowling married anesthetist Dr. Neil Murray at the couple’s home in Scotland. They have two children together, David (born in 2003) and Mackenzie (born in 2005). Rowling has one child, Jessica (born 1993), from her previous marriage.

Early life A graduate of University of Exeter, Rowling moved to Portugal in 1990 to teach English. There, she met and married the Portuguese journalist, Jorge Arantes. The couple’s daughter, Jessica, was born in 1993. After her marriage ended in divorce, Rowling moved to Edinburgh with her daughter to live near her younger sister, Di. While struggling to support her daughter Jessica and herself on unemployment benefits Rowling worked on her first book in the Harry Potter series. The idea for the book reportedly occurred to her while she was travelling on a train from Manchester to London in 1990.

She was 12 when she won in 2017, now, she still lives in her native Oklahoma, still goes to public school and still has a normal life, as much as possible. For example, she does media interviews, but they’re all scheduled late in the afternoon after she comes home from school. Most of the time. And as she gets ready to kick off her 18-city tour ‘Fresh Out Of The Box’, all show dates have all been planned around her school schedule.

Darci Lynne with Petunia

‘The shows are all on weekends so I can go to school during the weekdays and go out and do these awesome shows on the weekend. Two weekends a month, four shows a month.’ The 2019 tour follows a highly successful 50-stop tour last year that took her all over the country, generated more than 100,000 in ticket sales, and grossed $5.2 million.

‘After winning, it was kind of crazy and everything came at me at once, so we thought it would be perfect to do a tour because people wanted to see more of what I did on AGT (America’s Got Talent). It was so much fun! I can now say I’ve been to 37 states … and counting.’ Her enthusiasm, openness, and genuine talent are the qualities that helped Darci Lynne get the most votes for a final performance in the history of NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

She now has four puppets, that very first one, and three others that each has his or her own unique personality. There’s a rabbit named Petunia, a shy mouse named Oscar, and a sarcastic old woman named Edna. ‘Once I have a puppet and make a character and add personality to them, they still evolve and pick up little quirks and funny things along the way,’ she says. ‘Sometimes their personalities change according to what I do and what happens to me. Like winning changed Petunia. She used to be shy and now she’s a diva.’

‘I think who I am hasn’t changed, I’ve stayed true to myself, but definitely the opportunities have changed. I’ve gotten to do so many things that I’ve never gotten to do before, so it’s a whole new world for me. My world has kind of changed, but I haven’t. You know what I mean?’

e

While the puppets may have changed, Darci tries to keep her feet on the ground, despite the many new doors that have opened for her.

er

She is also a singer in her own right. She hopes to do more with her music in the future.

‘I’d love to, maybe grow a little more in my music because I love to sing by myself. So, maybe I’ll record some music of my own, I think that’d just be awesome.’ In terms of what else the future might hold, she says she thinks about possibly having her own TV show some day or perhaps venturing into acting. For someone who has already made a pretty amazing dream come true at a very early age, the possibilities are endless.

For her parents, when she first started, it was close to terrifying. ‘We wondered if Tiyan could cope with the super-fast pace of acrobatic moves and dance, if it was putting unnecessary pressure on her heart. We did ask all these questions but, at the same time, we realised we couldn’t wrap her up in cotton wool and, from then on, she just excelled. I just wanted her to have a hobby but she is very determined to do well and gets very angry with herself if she doesn’t.’
