III. Listening In

Task 1: Encore!

As soon as the singer completed the song, the audience cried, “Encore! Encore!” The singer was delighted and sang the song again. She couldn’t believe it when the audience shouted for her to sing it again. The cycle of shouts and songs was repeated ten more times. The singer was overjoyed with the response from the audience. She talked them and asked them why they were so much audience in hearing the same song again and again. One of the people in the audience replied, “We wanted you to improve it; now it is much better.”

W: Yes, anorexia. It is hard to believe that someone so beautiful would starve herself to death.

Task 3: Mozart

Mozart was a fascinating musician and composer whose fame continues to grow more than two centuries after his death. He was born in Salzburg, Austria, in 1756. Before the age of four, he had shown great musical talent. His father then decided to let him start taking harpsichord lessons. The boy’s reputation as a musical talent grew fast. At five, he was composing music. Form that time on, Mozart was performing n concerts and writing music. By his early teens, he had mastered the piano, violin and harpsichord, and was writing symphonies and operas. His first major opera was performed in Milan in 1770, when he was only fourteen. At fifteen, Mozart became the conductor for an orchestra in Salzburg. In 1781, he left for Vienna, where he was in great demand as both a performer and a composition teacher. His first opera was a success. But life was not easy because he was a poor businessman, and his finances were always in a bad state. His music from the next decade was not very popular, and he eventually fell back on his teaching jobs for a living. In 1788 he stopped performing in public, preferring only to compose. He died in 1791 at the age of thirty-five. Although he lived only a short life, he composed over 600 works.

V. Let’s Talk

The Origin of the Song “Happy Birthday to You”

The story of the song “Happy Birthday to You” Began as a sweet one, but later became bitter. Two sisters, Mildred Hill, a teacher at a kindergarten, and Dr. Patty Hill, the principal of the same school, wrote a song together for the children, entitled “Good Morning to All”. When Mildred combined her musical talents with her sister’s knowledge in the area of kindergarten education, ‘Good Morning to All” was sure to be a success. The sister published the song in a collection entitled “Song Stories of the Kindergarten” in 1893. Thirty-one years later, after Dr. Patty Hill became the head of the Department of Kindergarten Education at Columbia University’s Teachers College, a gentleman by the name Robert Coleman published the song, without the sisters’ permission. He added a second part, which is the familiar “Happy Birthday to You”. Mr. Coleman’s addition of the second part made the song popular and, finally, the sisters” original first part disappeared. “Happy Birthday to You” had altogether replaced the sisters’ original song “Good Morning to All”. In 1916 Patty took legal action against Mr. Coleman. In court, she succeeded in proving that hey were the real owners of the song.

Possible Retelling for the Teacher’s Reference

The story of “Happy Birthday to You” was a nice, sweet on eat the very beginning, but later turned into a bitter one. There were two sisters: one was Mildred Hill, and the other Patty Hill. The former had great musical talents, while the latter had knowledge of kindergarten education. Bu combining their abilities, the two produced a song called “Good Morning to All”. It was a success, and later published in a collection of songs for kindergartens.

Thirty-one years later a man named Coleman published the song without the sisters’ permission. To make things worse, he added a second part, which is the present “Happy Birthday to You”. This new song soon became popular and eventually it replaced the sisters’ first part altogether. Then, in 1916, Patty took legal action against Coleman. In court she managed to prove that she and her sister really owned the song.

 

VI. Further Listening and Speaking

Task 1: Karaoke

Dalin: It’s Mike’s birthday on Friday, so a bunch of us are going to go to the karaoke bar. Would you like to come with us?

Laura: Karaoke bar? You have a special place just for singing? In America, bars sometimes have a karaoke night where the customers can sing a song, but we haven’t special karaoke bars!

Dalin: Really? In China, karaoke is a very popular way for friends ro spend time together. We can select the music that ur group enjoys. We mostly sing pop songs.

Laura: Do you sing individually or in groups? Singing is not a very in thing, so I don’t sing very well.

Task 2: When was music first sent down a telephone line?

So you think downloading music from the Internet through a phone line is a really cool modern thing? Not so. In 1896, Thaddeus Cahill Filed a patent on the instrument for transmitting music electronically, and until 1914 he sent music signals down telephone lines with this instrument. And he wasn’t even the first. Elisha Gray transmitted music over a telephone line in 1876, which was the same year the telephone was invented. Gray invented the first electronic music instrument in 1874, calling it the “Musical Telegraph”. Alexander Graham Bell also designed an experimental “Electric Harp” for speech to be transmitted over a telephone line using technology similar to Gray’s. Bell was a speech teacher for the deaf. In 1879 he created an instrument to measure hearing loss. That is why the degrees of loudness came to be measured in bels or decibels.

Task 3: Thank You for the Music

I’m nothing special, in fact I’m a bit of a bore

If I tell a joke, you’re probably heard it before

But I have a talent, a wonderful thing

‘Cause everyone listens when I start to sing

I’m so grateful and proud

All I want is to sing it out loud

 

So I say

Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing

Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing

Who can live without it, I ask in all honestly

What would life be

Without a song or a dance what are we

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me

 

Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk

She says I began to sing long before I could talk

And I’ve often wondered, how did it all start

Who found out that nothing can capture a heart

Like a melody can

Well, whoever it was, I’m a fan

 

So I say

Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing

 

Speaking

Musical Memories

Tony:  Listen! Quick, turn up the radio! Isn’t that “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?”

Nancy: Yeah, it is, but what’s the big deal?

Tony:  When I was a little boy, my grandmother took me to see the movie The Lion King. That’s the Elton John song from the movie.

Nancy: I still can’t understand why it’s so important to you.

Tony:  Because it was the first movie I ever saw with my grandma and because I really loved spending time with her. It is my favorite song of all times!

Nancy: The first time Tom and I went on a date, we went to see Titanic. I always think of the song “My Heart Will Go On” as our song! Whenever I hear it, I think of that night.

Tony:  Oh, I can understand why you love that song! Isn’t it interesting all the memories we connect with songs?

III. Listening In

Task 1: Waiting for the New Harry Potter Movie

Amy: I’m so excited about finally seeing this movie!

Peter: Me too. I’m crazy about Harry Potter. Have you heard that J.K. Rowling has added another book to the series?

Amy: She’s already written Book Seven? I’m still waiting for Book Five…

Peter: I know. Who isn’t? At least we have the movies to watch in the meantime.

Amy: By the way, have you seen the trailer yet?
Peter: Yeah. It was great! I think the movie itself will be really scary.

Amy: It surely will! All that writing on the wall in blood… It scares me to death just to think about it!

 

Both the girl and the boy are excited/crazy about the movie and the hero Harry Potter. The boy heard that the writer J.K. Rowling has written the latest book, which is Book Seven, though the girl is still waiting for Book Five. The boy has been the trailer and believes the film will be scary. The girl shares that view because of the writing on the wall in blood.

 

Task 2: A Great Actor

There was once a great actor who could no longer remember his lines. After several years of searching, he finally found a theater that was willing to give him a try. The director said, “This is the most important part, and it has only one line. At the opening you walk onto stage carrying a rose. You hold the rose to your nose with just one finger and thumb, smell it deeply and then say the line on praise of the rose: ‘Ah, the sweet smell of my love.’” The actor was excited. All day long before the play he practiced his line over and over again. Finally, the time came. The curtain went up, the actor walked onto the stage, looked at the audience, and with great emotion said the line, “Ah, the sweet smell of my love.” The audience exploded in laughter. Only the director was furious! “Ahhhhhh! You damned fool!” he cried. “You’ve ruined my play! You’ve ruined me!” The actor was puzzled, “What happened? Did I forget my line?” “No!” shouted the director. “You forget the rose!”

Task 3: Movie Reviews

I love movies! And after I see them, I   like to comment on them. These are movies I saw this year I would like to recommend: Among comedies I highly recommend “Monsoon Wedding”. It’s an Indian movie. The story is about an Indian wedding. Preparations for the wedding bring out funny and sad situations touching on love and a past rape. This movie shows some of the wonderful customs of India, and the importance of family and love. It’s great!

Among dramas, I like “Adaptation”. It is an excellent movie! But for me the first part of the movie was too fast to follow. I hope to see it again on DVD with captions.

“The Pianist” is set in the Second World War. It’s about a young Polish-Jewish pianist, who lives in Warsaw with his family. The Nazis sent his family to die in the concentration camps. He was safe, but would have died without unusually good luck and the kindness of a few non-Jews. This is a powerful movie with thought-provoking themes.

“Rabbit-Proof Fence” is set in the 1930s in Australia, and it’s based on real events. It is about three native girls who are separated from their families by the racist police who send them to special centers. There the girls are taught practical skills, and the government tries to integrate them into white Australian society. They can away from the camp and walked 1,500 miles to find their mothers. This is a sad, touching story that you should not miss.

IV. Speaking Out

Model 1 Will you come with me?

John: Laura, I am wondering if you’re free tomorrow night.

Laura: Well, I guess I am. Why?

John: I’ve got two Star Wars premiere tickets. Will you come with me?

Laura: Yeah, definitely! Thanks for inviting me!

John: It’s my pleasure.

Laura: I really wanted to see Star Wars on the opening night, but the tickets were sold out. How did you manage to get hold of them?

John: A friend of mine works at the “Pepsi” headquarters, which is a major sponsor of the movie. So he was able to get the tickets for free.

Laura: Wow, people are paying as much as $200 each on the black market. I’m flattered you went through all this trouble just for me.

John: You’re welcome.

 

Now Your Turn

SAMPLE DIALOG

A: Hi, are you busy this weekend?
B: Yes. What’s on your mind?
A: I’ve got two tickets for the car exhibition. Would you like to go with me?
B: Sure. Thanks for your invitation.

A: It’s nothing.

B: I’ve been wanting to see exhibition, but it was not at all easy to get a ticket. How did you manage to get two tickets?

A: A friend of mine works at the exhibition center. She was able to get three free tickets.

B: Wow, people are paying almost 100 yuan for a ticket on the black market. Thank you very much indeed for inviting me.

A: No problem.

Model 2 What did you think about the movie?

John: So… what did you think about the movie?
Laura: Well… I think this Star Wars episode is an excellent piece of work, but not as good as the

      previous ones.

John: Really? But I think this Star Wars episode was incredible!

Laura: Why do you think so?
John: Well, one of the most spectacular things about it was the special effects. State-of-the-art

special effects were the main reason for the success of the previous episodes.

Laura: You’re right. The special effects were amazing! And I like the fact that they created so

many fantastic settings and other-worldly costumes, weapons and creatures.

Now Your Turn

SAMPLE DIALOG

A: What did you think about The Lion King?

B: Well… I think this cartoon was pretty good, but not as good as Beauty and the Beast. It’s a killer flick.

A: Really? But I think The Lion King was unbelievably good.

B: I thought it was just OK. Why do you think so?

A: Well, it’s so interesting that the lives of the lions were similar to the lives of human beings.

B: You’re right. The murder in The Lion King was almost the same as the murder in the Shakespearean play Hamlet.

 

Model 3 The plot is first-class.

John: It’s kind of cool that they still used the same Star Wars theme song for this movie.

Laura: Yeah! It just reminds me of the previous Star Wars scenes.

John: I know exactly what you mean! Hearing that song makes me think of the past.

Laura: I think the plot was first-class. But I don’t think the character development was that strong.

John: Do you think that has anything to do with the casting of the movie?

Laura: No, the casting was great; the actors are excellent, but I think the acting was a little weak.     They just didn’t have a lot of funny or meaningful lines.

John: Well, maybe, but I liked the little kid that played “Skywalker”. I can’t imagine anyone else playing that part.

Laura: Yeah, I liked him too. He’s soooo cute!

Now Your Turn

SAMPLE DIALOG

A: What do you think about the movie?

B: I think the plot was first-class. But I don’t think the character development was so strong.

A: Yes, the characterization was rather weak. Do you think it is because of the casting of the movie?

B: No, the cast was strong. But the acting was rather poor. And the lines are not interesting at all.

A: Well, maybe. But I liked the heroine of the movie. She is excellent.

B: Yeah, I liked her too. She’s adorable!

 

V. Let’s Talk

Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock was a British director. His movies frequently show innocent people caught up in situations beyond their control or even understanding.

Hitchcock preferred the use of suspense in his movies. In surprise, the director provides the viewer with frightening things. In suspense, the director tells or shows things to the audience which the characters in the movie do not know, and then skillfully builds up tension around what will happen when the characters finally learn the truth. Hitchcock had a great sense of humor. Once at a French airport, a suspicious customs official looked at Hitchcock’s passport, which was marked simply PRODUCER. The curious official asked, “And what do you produce?” “Gooseflesh.” replied Hitchcock.

Alfred Hitchcock always managed to make a brief appearance in his movies: He was sometimes getting on a bus, or crossing a street, pr walking in front of a store, or across the courtyard in an apartment. However, for the movie Lifeboat in 1944, he was faced with a difficult problem. The entire movie was set in a lifeboat out at sea, and there were only a few characters in the boat. Originally, he wanted to float by as a dead body, but he was afraid he’d sink! His clever solution was to place a photograph of himself in a newspaper that one of the characters read during the course of the movie.

Task 1: Only One Line

Peter has always wanted to be an actor, but never succeeded because he had a hard time memorizing lines. A friend of his told him about a small part in a play. He promised Peter that he could do it because he’s only have to remember one line. Peter decided to take the part. His only line was, “Listen, I hear the guns roar!” Peter practiced and practiced, “Listen, I hear the guns roar!” On the opening night of the play Peter was very nervous. Backstage, he practiced his line, over and over again, “Listen, I hear the guns roar! Listen, I hear the guns roar!” Finally came his turn, Peter went onto stage. He heard a loud BOOM and cried out in spite of himself, “WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?”

Task 2: An Interview with J.K. Rowling

Q: How did you get the idea for Harry Potter?

A: I was traveling on a train between Manchester and London and the idea for Harry just fell into my head. At that point it was essentially the idea for a body who didn’t know he was a wizard.

Q: Did you always plan to write Harry’s story in more than one book? If so, how many?

A: I always conceived it as a seven-book series because I decided that it would take seven years,   from age eleven to seventeen, inclusive, to train as a wizard, and each of the books would deal with one year of Harry’s life at the school.

Q: Any clues about the next book?

A: I don’t want to i\give anything away, but I tell you that the books are getting darker. Harry’s going to have quite a bit to deal with as he gets older. Sorry if they get too scary!

Q: Of the many things you must have heard people say about Harry Potter, what are some of your favorites?

A: My very favorite was from a twelve-year-old Scottish girl who came to hear me read at the Edinburgh book festival. At the end of the festival, the queue for signing was very long. When the girl finally reached me, she said, “I didn’t WANT there to be so many people here, because this is MY books!” That is exactly how I feel about my favorite books. Nobody else has a right to know them; let alone like them!

Task 3: The Secret of the Next Harry Potter Book

The Harry Potter books rapidly became one of the most in-demand book series among young readers and have earned large sums of money. Movies based on the books won several Oscar nominations. Readers are now keen to know the plot of the next book.

Harry Potter movie fans will get a long-awaited treat. The movie Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret is finally about to come out. This time around, Harry discovers a frightening secret at Hogwarts School. Eager readers of the first four Harry Potter books are also trying to discover a secret, the secret plot of the fifth book in the series. Because of the long wait since Book Four, they are guessing many things. Some think that Professor Lupin will die or that Harry and his friend Ron may be related!

J.K. Rowling herself has only said that Book Five will be shorter and scarier than Book Four. To make sure her readers hear only rumors, she locks all her ideas for the books in a hidden place. Since the next book does not come out until 2003, for mow Harry’s secret is safe with her!

Views on Movies

Interviewer: Hello, Robert and Richard, I’d like to ask you something about movies. Do you prefer going to the theater or watching movies on video at home?

Robert:    I prefer, personally, going to the theater, because I believe there are certain movies that come over better when you see them in a large theater. The sound effect is much better.

Interviewer: What about you, Richard?
Richard:   Just the opposite. It’s more comfortable to sit at home.

Interviewer: There’re many different movie genres, for example, science fiction, action, comedy, romance. What’s your personal favorite?

Robert:    My favorite would be action movies.

Richard:   And mine would be nice movies that touch me deeply.

Interviewer: How do you like the old black and white movies of the forties, and fifties compared with the modern blockbusters?

Robert:    For their time, the movies of the forties and fifties were excellent. But try to compare them with today’s technology, and you’ll find there isn’t anything to compare. It’s so superior today.

Richard:   I agree.
