The profession of a teacher
- I am going to go America to educate
there. How that I am eager to clear up some questions about it. Will you help
- Of course IТll do it anyway.
- Nice of you to say that. First of all
IТd like you to explain me. How successful applicants are chosen at colleges at
- IТll explain it with great pleasure.
These applicants are chosen on the basis of a) Their high school records, b)
recommendations, c) their scores on the scholastic aptitude tests.
- Well, I see. But does the system of
higher education on the us comprise there categories of institution?
- ThatТs right. These there categories
of institutions are: 1) the university, which may contain several colleges for
under graduate students, 2) the technical training institutions, 3) the two Ц
year, or community college.
- Well, I see! But can be they public
- No doubt. These institutions can be
private or public and it depends on the source of its funding.
- A future student will have himself in
factors determining the quality of education what institutions can you suggest
- The most selective are the old
private north Ц eastern universities such as Harvard Radcliffe, Princeton
University, and University of Pennsylvania.
- What can you say about their traditions?
- Certainly. These traditions make a
great influence on their reputation.
- What else must Americans also know
- Everyone has to know information
about Professional degrees such as a Bachelor of Law, or a Bachelor of
- I donТt want to annoy you? But IТd
like to know something about the requirements for a MasterТs or DoctorТs
- You may read more detailed
information in some handbooks or guides.
- I see, you are not a chatterbox, you
prefer to speak in a short way. But explain me the question about the credits.
- It depends on the number of hours of
work involved. They are earned by attending lectures and by successfully
completing assignments and examinations.
- Are credits for the academic work
transferable among universities?
- Yes, they are.
- Many thanks for your assistance.
- DonТt mention it. It wasnТt any
difficulty for me.
of the court in the USA
- LetТs discuss the problem of the
courts in the USA. I know the courts are the overseers of the law. No matter
who the man is, everybody should know something about the court.
- I quite agree with you. They
administer the law, they resolve disputes under it.
- It each state served by the separate
- Yes, that is so. State and federal
system are organized into three basic levels of courts i.e. trial courts
intermediate courts of appeal and a high court, or Supreme Court.
- And what are, the state courts
- They are concerned essentially with
cases arising under state law.
- And what about federal ones?
- Oh, they are concerned with cases
arising under federal law.
- No matter how difficult it is to
remember, but I want to know about trial courts more detailed.
- Will these courts include common
pleas courts, municipal courts, county courts and mayorsТ courts?
- Which of them is the most important?
- Of course the common pleas court is
the most important. It is the court of general jurisdiction.
- Any civil on criminal cases may be
brought here, may not they.
- Yes, of course.
- How, I see and what about probate and
- Well, in short the probate division
deals with wills and the administration of estates etc. and the domestic
division deals with divorce, alimony, child custody.
- This division deserves nothing but
great attention and what about the juvenile division?
- This division has jurisdiction over
delinquent, unruly or neglected children and over adults.
- How do you think what is the main job
- No doubt it is to review cases
appealed from trial courts to determine if the law was correctly interpreted
- The Supreme Court of each state is
primarily a court of appeal and the court of last resort, isnТt it?
- Sure, it is.
- What is the federal court structure
- It is similar to the structure of the
state court system. The trail courts in the federal system are the U.S.
- What is the highest court in the
- The Supreme Court is the highest
court in the nation. It consists of a chief justice and eight associate
- Whom are they appointed by?
- They are appointed for life by the
President with the advice and Consent of the Senate.
- What is its duty?
- Its duty is to decide whether laws
passed by the Constitution.
- I am very pleased to know all this.
And I hope it will help me in my future work as a lawyer.
- This year IТll graduate from the
university. And I am going to work at school. But children are in the first
place at school. Though they sat I am meant to be a teacher. Sometimes I am
afraid of so called УdifficultФ children.
- You see, УdifficultФ children are not
a problem in comparison with many other problems.
- Nevertheless the problem deserves
much attention of necessary. But one must concentrate all the efforts to
understand the children, who to some extend are unhappy, who are inclined to
use for example, drugs, to destroy order, and waste the greater part of the day.
- I am glad you to have a shift in your
opinion, calling УdifficultФ children Ц unhappy. You may absorb much
information about youth problems from magazines and newspapers, which confirm
the fact, that working with children 1st of all you are to love them
in spite of the fact they are children of awful habits.
- Well, I understood that to have
success in future work with children. I love a way with these children. IТd
like to talk with some experienced teaches who will be able to describe their
long Ц termed work with much detail. No doubt, it will be of great importance
- You must not only to learn the
children themselves, but their families as well, who are in a light corner. You
must be very convincible working with such families.
- Of course, I want to work at school
though I am not so elated but I hope to find good relations with the children,
and may be they wonТt be УdifficultФ no longer.
- Good luck. Really. You are must be a
teacher, no difficult frighten you.
- Many people like to celebrate
different holidays now days. As you know the holidays are different: they may
be Ц international, national, local, family, political, and cultural and
others. Which of them do you prefer?
- There is a proverb: My home is my fortress.
That is why I like family holidays ordinary though they are.
- By the way I quite agree with you on
account of that fact that all the people love their families. First of all we
like birthday parties. We prepare for them carefully.
- Certainly birthday parties Ц are the
purest ones we put a fortune tree in the living room and decorate it with
lanterns, crackers, with birthday wishes.
- DonТt make haste. Tell about the
fortune tree in details.
- It is not so extraordinary we put a
branch of a tree in a bowl. Then hang paper toys, sweets, crakes with wishes in
it. And everyone is pleased to receive any prize.
- Great. I see you at your best. And
what other family holidays do you celebrate except birthday?
- Well they are different family
anniversaries: entering school, finishing it, entering the university and
graduation from it, the anniversary of wedding party and so on.
- Well I see. It is so pleasant to be
together with your relatives to make head or tall the sorrows, the troubles,
the happiness of each other. By the way tomorrow is my birthday and I invite
- Certainly IТll come and I want to
suggest you to make place markers for your guests, decorating them with colored
paper balloons with the name of your guests. I am sure they will know your
party will be more joyful and interesting.
- Thanks a lot of. DoesnТt forget:
tomorrow at 5 oТclock in the evening. My address is Flat 1. 54 Forest Street.
- DonТt worry. IСll be in time and by
the way I want to clear up know are you about folklore?
- I like folk dances and songs and I
want to show you my folk Russian dress.
- Oh, you have made it yourself!
- With a help of my relatives. I want
you to hear Russian folk songs tomorrow. I know many of them. By the way my
relatives can play folk instruments and we have a good time, resting together.
- It is curious. I hope IТll like it
too. I like Russian songs too.
A problem child
- All I can
think is the problem of problem children and problem parents?†
- It makes me
angry to hear this why? This theme seems simple if important.
- You set much
store by this problem.
But you see if
people i.e. parents bring up their children there are no problem children.
- I donТt
agree. I think the parents should have a very with their children. And it isnТt
easy. I can tell you.
- How is that
you canТt understand that there is nothing to worry about. Children must obey
their parents. Parent must look after their children. And that is all.
- I wanted to finish the discussion but
I decided not to do, because some pupils are in very different conditions. E.g.
their parents are drugs Ц addicted or have other harmful habits. They got their
- I wouldnТt
go so far as to take it5 seriously. Because there are not so many people with
- Look here
unfortunately there are many problem children and problem parents, because of
unpleasant condition in the society: e.g. unemployment, shortage of money, a
high level of divorces and of course the school is involved in all these
- ItТs your
look out. No doubt there should be two sided. Promotion concerning parents and
- IТve heard
that you had passed your first school Ц practice? What are your impressions?
No matter how
difficult it was, I liked it. But you also had passed the first school
practice, hadnТt you?
frankly speaking it was interesting for me to communicate with schoolchildren
of different ages.
- Now that we
are rather experienced we are not annoyed with the process of teaching.
my first school practice I have nothing but satisfaction.
- While being
at practice I fond out that many pupils are smart.
- IТd like to
tell you about one of the most interesting case during my practice in exchange.
- You are
welcome. I want to reluctant to listen to your story.
- I see you
make a fuss about it?
- Why not?
- Well one
day, the pupils asked me too many questions at the lesson. I was at a loss. I
understood that I know not much. I was ashamed.
- The matter
was urgent wasnТt it?
- I decided to
study very interesting stuff in different spheres.
- What have
- I studied
much valuable various information.
- What was the
- What brought
about your relations with children?
- When they
understood that I am well educated. They could entrust me.
- Well. Though
it was our first practice, we realized we could bring the children.
TV Ц a
- I assure you
that TV has positive and negative influences.
- Certainly I
am not opposed to this question. But I think neednТt worry about it; the TV
leadership knows its way about and can find a necessary way out.
- I will say
this for TV it taught me a lot.
- Sure, some
TV programmes are valuable. Nowadays cable television, satellite televisions
are widely spread.
- I prefer
current affairs and nature life programmes.
- I see as to
me I am fond sports programmes and sitcoms.
- Of course TV
has much positive influence. It is modern, can be portable, interesting and
- But from the
other hand. TV becomes commercial; there are too many thrillers, soap operas
- And the
screen time is too expensive.
- I am annoyed
with the advertisement.
- So do I. I
think they should reduce the time of the advertisement.
- No matter
how negative TV seems to be it has great future.
- In todays
conversation I would like to concentrate of major problems of young couples,
because not so long ago my brother has married. First his wife and he were
meant for each other. And now..?
- Well, I
myself am going to marry. And this problem is in the first place for me. Can
you describe with much detail the problems of your married brother?
- When a young
family was confirmed by the parents, all the finical problems were out Ц of Ц
the Ц way. But then on account of young couple wanted to be independent parents
stopped their support some problems appeared.
- You wanted
drop a hint. They made ends meet.
- And to avoid
the problems both husband and wife should entrust each other and then their
marriage will be effective.
- And what
about love and looking up to.
- Sure. When
young couples find fault with each other their marriage will fail under any
way to travel is on foot
- I guess
there are some pros and contras of the fast that the only way to travel is on
- I have my
feet on the ground that travelling on foot is of great importance I donТt
object to travel on foot myself.
- It seems to
me you have pos for this kind of traveling. I am not where you like, you may
stay at any peace and it is not expensive. You are reluctant resting either
near the lake or at the river.
- To my mind
traveling on foot is the healthiest way to go about the country because you are
not rattled by the air freshness.
- You drop a
hint that it is useful to travel on foot.
- But any
traveling must have its pros and contras what about the contras of traveling on
But I ask you not chatter like a magpie.
- Sorry. But
nevertheless donТt wash your hands of the discussion.
- As far as I
am concerned to be out of doors Ц isnТt very pleasure. The weather may be
changeable, and you may be very tied of going to long.
- I donТt object
to this point of view. But the thing is that you must be very attentive in
order not to be in trouble.
a good teacher?
- The question
about teaching is more popular than ever.
- Really! What
an importance it must have been to our society.
- It is
because of everybody is involved in the process of teaching.
- The first
and most important thing I have to tell you that some people have an inform
gift for teaching.
- I really do
remember that of course a good teacher must have an inform gift for teaching.
But not only it!
- You have
some contras of the informal gift donТt you?
- I am
inclined that an informal gift as a matter of fact is vital. But I prefer the
opinion that the skill of teaching can be taught.
- I donТt
shift my ground. I know some examples, when good teachers without necessary
pedagogical education, are good teachers indeed. They are teachers by their
origin. There are meant for being teachers.
is attractive of interesting. But in comparison with it, the teacher must be a
person of high qualification.
- Thus he must
know too much.
- So a good
teacher must confirm his high appointment to serve the business of pupilsТ
resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way
- A Great
Russian poet L. Tolstoy has his own world Ц knows point of concerning happy and
unhappy families. Do you purely consent to it?
- As far as I
am able to judge each family is individual, all the families canТt resemble one
- Here I differ
with you. When the families are full, parents are serious, they earn much to
maintain the families, they take care of their children, and they may resemble
- I must say I
can see no reason oppose. Perhaps you are right. Really if the parents donТt
pay attention to their children, canТt support they families also resemble each
other, i.e. unhappy families also resemble each other.
- The question
is whether we speak about the financial conditions. But I am lost in wonder why
rich families may be happy.
also canТt make head or tail of it. But it seems to me that happiness is not
only in money.
families, where is agreement, love, respected are happy, but where we have no
such qualities, we speak of unhappy families.
each family is a special individual part of the society. Each family has it own
way of development. And it is impossible to divide all the families into the
happy and unhappy ones.
family Ц a myth or reality.
your idea of ideal family?)
- An ideal
family is more like a myth than reality in modern life?
- I should
never have thought that discussion the problem of the ideal family is such a
- May be itТs
really purely a matter of taste!
- Speaking my
mind and ideal family is a myth, because an ideal family canТt be in ordinary
precisely what I am going to speak about. Every family has always some
Unfortunately many members of the family donТt stir a finger to help each other
and that is why there are problems. And an ideal family canТt exist in reality.
- Perhaps we
shouldnТt judge so bitterly. I know some families where there is love;
understanding and respect i.e. there are ideal families. ItТs reality.
- An ideal
family is a lifetime dream, because a family canТt exist isolated independently
from the society. And there is ideal society. So an ideal family is a myth to
- DonТt be so
pessimistic. As far as I am concerned every person creates his own fate. If
there is a purpose of creating and ideal family you may have it. Everything
depends on us ourselves. If we believe in positive and try to do the best for
it, everything will be OK.
differ. But I quite agree with you that we ourselves can create and ideal
addiction and prostitution entail legal prosecution?
you think of the causes of these phenomena?)
- No matter
how hard the question about drug addiction and prostitution is, we couldnТt
ignore it, because at present these processes are more popular than we would
like to have.
- Exactly. My
personal opinion is that it goes even further than that I canТt agree with
those who denies legal prosecution of drug addiction and prostitution.
- But why? If
some people want to deal with it perhaps let them do it!
- IТm not sure
you are right about it. These things are immoral, they are harmful for people.
We canТt forget about it.
- Here I differ
with you. As it is known УForbidden fruit is always sweetФ Many people,
especially young, try to use something. Extraordinary.
- I am
inclined to think that you approve it? I must say I can see no reason to agree.
Drug addiction and prostitution demonstrate the lowest qualities of the person.
The society must help people to avoid these habits.
- But as far
as understand. It is not easy to breakaway drug addiction and prostitution.
- Sure. First
of all the person himself must realize the necessity to have a healthy way of
- And many
people: relatives, friends, doctors are also involved in this difficult
- Therefore in
my opinion, thereТs no place for prostitution and drug addiction in the
congratulations, to your recent marriage. IТd like to know whether you make
haste or not?
- As far as
can realize I didnТt commit an error. I really lost my heart to my husband.
- You want to
say that you are meant for each other.
- I want to
remind you of the fact that practically we my husband and me were acquainted for
many years. And we hadnТt any confusion.
- So you drop
a hint, that being married is better than being single?
- I donТt drop
a hint. I know exactly, where you have a family with a favorite person you are
- It seems to
me you donТt have the least notion of some disadvantages being married.
- Of course
IТm married not so long ago, but I donТt want to think about the disadvantages
- You are so
inspired! But IТm not embarrassed that IТm single.
- Well, Now I
understand why you are again marriage because you single.
- DonТt have
such a rough tongue. But I want to open your eyes to some couple problems. I
donТt want to marry, until I understand that my future spouse is my real second
according to you people mustnТt marry at all.
- Of course,
tastes are differ! Some people fail in marriage, some fail being alone.
- I suggest
when you are alone, you are unhappy, and when you have somebodyТs love, careТ
children you canТt be unhappy 1 that is you must be married.
reading in our life
- In spite of
the new information technologies books take an important part in our life, I
can tell you.
- What you
sayТs perfectly true I am also sure that reading is a source of information.
- You may be
right, but I think it goes further than that, a lot of further. Reading
reflects all the processes in our life.
- The point is
that while reading you may feel all the events yourself.
- If you were
asked to advise something to read, what would you choose?
- What I
choose is connected with classic!
- Would like
to add modern literature to your choice.
- Perhaps it
is an excellent opportunity to be well Ц informed.
sometimes reading is more like a refuge for the lonely, when you want to forget
everything and everybody.
- You are
right in a way. It is necessary to be alone in some situations.
- Is and is
reading taken up as a pastime?
- As to me
reading is a wonderful pastime.
- What, what
is reading really for you?
- ItТs an
important source of information for me I can tell you.
- I think that
nowadays television is the apple of our eyes.
- Do you
really mean it?
- Yes, thereТs
nothing I like more than television.
- But I must
say I am not too found of television.
- Why, isnТt
- I am afraid television
has some negative influence especially on children?
- What do you
- First of all
it is at a great sacrifice to childrenТs health.
- Really many
parents canТt do a thing with their children. They wonТt give up watching TV
are involved in many adult actions such as violence, cruelty, etc.
- But in
comparison with their information technologies. It is not so harmful!
- As far as I
am able to judge, of course television has some positive influence first of
all. There are interesting educational programmes.
- Now there
are some children channels, eg. УTelenynyaФ, УChildren worldФ which can parents
brining the children up.
- And about
the cultural development.
- Here you
have my whole support!
So the point
is that there should be measure in everything. Parents should regulate the time
and the content of watching.
houses, women make homes
- As far as I am concerned
the proverb УMen make houses, women make home is quite just.
- We should
take into account that a man must do his best in order not to make ends meet.
- Well, as a
matter of fact, a man must be able to give everything for his wife and children
to live without problems. It concerns the material and the spiritual aspects.
-I think, I
should point out the real family is based not only on the material aspect!
-In fact the
home comfort is also of great importance. And just a woman is involved in it.
- You are
quite right discomfort makes a man angry.
- And then
many problems appear which may result in disgust or even in divorce.
-But I think
all these problems avoidable if both men and women put wise about their family
- All I can
say is if people want to have good relations in their families they should
carry out the duties, according to their appointment: a man should build and
support his house. A woman should take care of her home.
- Reading is very important and useful,
I can tell you.
- I quite agree with you. I am not
opposed to your opinion. Now is that everybody is interested in reading.
- Well, you see. Books suit us down to
the ground from the very childhood. Where children like to read fairy tales.
Which teach the people to be kind, since frank?
- And when we begin to have our feet on
the ground books teach us to live in serious life. As you know books are
different; they may be documentary, or books about adventures, about love,
about nature, and of course there is much scientific literature.
- No doubt. Books cover a lot of
ground. Books are our good friends I can tell you.
- It comes about that there are many
own, private libraries full of wonderful, interesting books. By the way have
you a home library?
- Yes, and I have some very ancient
copies. Many generations of our family collected books. And I am proud of my
collection I have some handbooks, different encyclopedias. I like to sit in the
armchair and to read in silence, looking at the table lamp light.
- So do I. In flesh the books help us
much. We are together during the whole life. Oh pardon me, my time is up. I am
in a hurry. Our conversation was interesting for both.
- Well see you. If you find any ancient
copy of the book, phone me, IТll be very pleased to come by it.
- Many factors influence on the
personalityТs development and one of them is music. To bring a conclusion I
must say that music and our life canТt exist separately.
- There is something special in the way
- On the contrary. It is not special.
Really music is with us constantly. It may be serious, funny, sad, joy, it can
control our feelings our mood, it can maintain us, it can cause sorrow,
- Well, to my satisfaction IТm glad to
listen to your words. Because before our conversation I almost ignored music.
Interesting or not I was indifferent to music. But now I change my mind and I
am sure that I can set my mind on music.
- I think to achieve it you need to
have many music literatures, records at hand.
- I shall try my hand to do it.
- This will be the most I can expect of
- Nice of you to say that IТll try to
do my best.
- You are so persistent. You suffer no
- Sure. IТll eat out of my hand. Then
good luck to you.
- Seriously speaking I thing IТll try
to understand the importance of music on the manТs life.
holidays in English Ц speaking countries
- I heard there are some interesting
customs and holidays in Great Britain. I would like you to remind me of some of
- Why not tell you about Christmas.
ItТs a wonderful holiday; I can tell you First of all, when is it celebrated?
What is it taken up with?
- It is regularly celebrated on the 25th
of December and it is taken up with the New Year coming.
- I guess it is not an ordinary
- Yes, you are quite right. Every
Englishman is fussy about Christmas.
- You want to say that people lose
their heads waiting for Christmas.
- ThatТs it. Every family has a
Christmas tree, prepares famous turkey and looks forward Boxing Day, it is on
December 26. When everybody receives Christmas presents. Except this holiday
there are some others in English speaking countries: Bonfire Night, May Day,
Thanksgiving Day (in America) Independence Day etc. but as far as I am
concerned Kazakhstan has also many customs and holidays? Can you tell me
- With pleasure. There are many of
valued holidays in my country. One of them is certainly Nauriz.
- When did It come into existence?
- You see, it is a very ancient
holiday. But up to date we didnТt know much about it. But when our country
received independence. Nauriz became one of the most well Ц known and
favourite holidays in our Republic.
- When it is celebrated and what does
- It is celebrated on March, 22 and
means the spring coming.
- I am inclined to think, that there
are some special preparations for it?
- You are quite right. The families get
together, cook tasty national dishes, and organize different sport and music
- What are the others customs and
holidays. Are any of them?
- No doubt! They are: Independence Day,
The Day of Republic, interesting wedding customs, and others.
- Well, I see, our countries have many
interesting events and to my mind. It is useful to exchange them.
generation gap: myth or reality? (1)
- Interviewer: The question is whether
there is the generation gap.
- Psychologist: I think the generation
gap isnТt myth itТs reality.
- I must say I can see no reason to
oppose. To my mind this gap has been forever.
- But from the point of view of
psychology the gap concerns the psychological changes in the society. The
society itself changes greatly and the peopleТs characters are changed too.
- The values constantly change what fit
in the past that does not fit in the present as a matter of fact.
- As a matter of fact parents in
comparison with children understand all the events in their way, but the
children understand these events in their way.
- Nevertheless the parents are always
elated by their children in spite of all their larks.
- You are right quite. It is determined
psychologically. Real parents always sympathize with their children.
- All I am trying to say that there is
a real generation gap. It will be in all the times.
- You have my whole support, but there
is only one hope for it. Both sides will patient and try to do their best to
understand and help each other.
generation gap: myth or reality? (2)
Interviewer: Good afternoon! I want to
ask you several questions about the generation gap: myth or reality?
psychologist: Good afternoon, I suppose the generation gap is reality.
psychologist: Because we have the difficult child is the child who is unhappy
consequence. He is at war with the world and his parents.
the usual arguments put forward against giving more freedom to the child?
psychologist: The usual argument against freedom for children is this: life is hard,
and parents must train the children so that they will fit into life later on.
therefore discipline them.
Why is it
wrong to pressure a child into obedience?
psychologist: Fear can be a terrible thing in a childТs life. Only hate can flourish in
the atmosphere of fear.
should the new generation be brought up?
psychologist: It seems to me itТs clear that we should bring up the next generation
with a greater respect for law and for other peopleТs rights.

- IТd like to go behind the education
- First of all I want to mention, that
the expenses for education are not reduced they constantly continue to

high education because better.
- I donТt hint, I say trustingly. I
think computerization produced a great effect on education.
- You mean education because more
- Well, I think that higher education
in Kazakhstan is no worse than abroad.
- Really. From year to year the level
of education comes along!
- Of course the information technology
takes are important part in education. But the thing is that valued teaches are
- I donТt object to this point of view.
But we canТt notice the problems in education.
- May be you are right. I know that
there are several problems.
- Can you name some of them?
- The thing is that there are many
small institutions of one direction. And then the leavers canТt find job.
- I also think the system of
controlling studentsТ knowledge should be remade.
- Here I support you completely. The
students must have strong knowledge in order to be competitive with the
students all over the world.
divorce Ц a global problem (1)
- The problem of divorce is serious,
- To my satisfaction. I am not going to
divorce. But many of my friends are involved in this problem.
- How do you think what are the reasons
- As far as I can judge when people
stop living without love their marriage has no future.
- When on one hand the spouses try to
live together because of their children or on the other hand they are afraid of
divorce their marriage has no future either.
- But I want to point out, why there is
no more love or regard?
- Yes, this question serves great
attention. I think both wife and husband mustnТt wash their hands of different
family problems. It is the way of avoiding the quarrels.
- And I want to remind you a proverb
УMen make houses, women make homesУ. If this proverb really acts, there are
fewer causes for divorce.
protection problem (1)
- What is your point of view of
environmental protection problem?
- Unfortunately, but today there is no
clean place left.
- Yes, the more we build now factories,
and try not to look after nature the more polluted places we have.
- I have no reason to oppose. Many
trees are cut down now. Our towns are full of litter.
- And air leaves much to be desired.
- You must be on the safe side, when
you swim in the river, or in the sea, because bottom and the water
itself may be polluted.
- Environmental problem is of great
importance for our health.
- Do you mean virus infection? They may
be dangerous for all living livings.
- I dream that coast will be clear and
we live in healthy environment.
- As far I am concerned our authorities
donТt ignore this problem. They try to solve this problem.
- How is it done!
- First of all. New trees are grown,
i.e. the forests are restored.
- And the factories put their wastes
into environment less and.
- Glad to hear it.
- Perhaps you might consider me
a bit of a fanatic about environment protection!
- I donТt think so. But you are the
sort of ordinary person wants to help all of us.
- Today this problem must be in the
first place. We are in search such measures which can really help to protect
- I also donТt shift my ground in this
- The more people understand the
necessity of environment protection the better results we can have.
- You quite right in your decision.
protection problem (2)
- About two hundred tears ago man lived
in far way with nature, because, industry was not much developed.
- Anyway today the contradiction
between man and nature are dramatic. What can you say about the ecological
- Every year world industry throws out
into atmosphere about 1000 million tons of dust and other harmful substances.
Forests are disappearing; the pollution of the air, ocean, seas, and rivers
could lead our planet to a global catastrophe.
- What should we do?
- The Earth is our home that is why we
must take care of it, for ourselves and for the next generations. We must have
all people keeping our environment clean.
- How was it that Lake Baikal and its
shores have been declared a specially protected zone of the country?
- More than twenty years ago a pulp Ц
and Ц paper factory was built on the shore of lake of the water pollution; more
then 50 per cent of the worldТs purest water have been rained.
- What shouldnТt we do?
- We shouldnТt use cars a lot throw
litter into the streets, cut trees, plants, trees and pick flowers. This was
the most I can say.
- Thank you very much I learned much
from or your interesting interview.
- I have nothing but gratitude for you
because you affected very global problems in Kazakhstan.
and prospects of higher education in Kazakhstan
- I learned much from newspapers
restricted though they were anyway the first problem is group for gifted
children. The second problem of higher education is payment for instruction.
- What do you think about education
- I have nothing but pity the students.
Because our programme is not effective maintenance of educational programmes.
- I suppose they were meant by teachers
with law qualification. This was the most I can say.
- IТll say this for you. You were very
- Thank you. I busy or not. I always
find time for our education.
divorce Ц a global problem (2)
- Good afternoon! How are you?
- Hello. I am fine and you?
- Today I learned much from that news
about increase in divorce restricted though they were. I think it is a good
- I agree with you. I can not
understand how it was that young family divorce after one month their joint
- I have nothing but pity for these
couples. I suppose there are the essential causes of divorce.
- You are quite right! Little did they
guess what they had many problem after marriage.
- What do you think about kind of
causes of divorce?
- Anyway I know two causes. The first
is a character when the wife hasnТt her husband help her with kid or homework.
When husband is thinking there is something in the way be drying the floor.
- I sure you are right. I want to tell
you that second cause is a money and absence of job. Because I suppose if than
marriage he must provide his family. And the young coups must that they meant
for understand each other.
holidays in English Ц speaking countries.
- Customs and holidays in the urban
community are of great importance for everyone.
- I think no matter who the man might
be he must know customs and holidays his country. What holidays do you know?
- Anyway, I think such holidays as: the
day of the town. Independence Day professional holiday are celebrated in many
- Well, I see but how can they be
- First of all, music concerts creative
parties, fireworks are done on such holidays.
- If we speak about family customs, we
may pay attention to celebrations round the family table. When people may visit
their relatives or friends.
- IТll say this for families who have
their own customs i.e. commemorative dates: when the families try to get
- Wherever you lived you must know
customs and holidays of your town and your family.
- Yes, if you remember the holidays
future life may exist.
- Now that we talk about this theme I
can say there are some wonderful holidays created and celebrated by people.
- I think they were meant for
stricter the punishment, the lesser the crime rate, or is it?
- ItТs a tough decision to make, isnТt
it? DonТt you think that itТs an awful responsibility to have the future of
that lad in our hands? I feel so sorry for him, heТs not yet 21.
- Come off it! You canСt be serious! He
didnТt just take the money, he also beat up own child. HeТs guilty it is
written all over his face. ItТs our social duty to care of car children.
- I agree with your last statement but
surely you admit the evidence for convicting this young man is rather flimsy? WouldnТt
you say that we need something more definite?
- Anyway, thatТs quite true, but there
werenТt any other witnesses. As I see it he had the motive, he has no alibi and
his child recognized him.
- Hang on a minute. IТd like to point
out that he only thought he recognized him. IsnТt it just possible that a
scared little boy of 5 could have been mistaken?
- Fair enough, but itТs all we have to
go on. All the fingers seem to point at him.
- That may be, but strong suspicion
isnТt enough to put someone in person. If you ask me, even if he is guilty, the
shock of arrest and coming to trial will be enough to stop him making
the same mistake again.
- I see what you mean, I think the
stricter the punishment the lesser the crime rate I suppose no matter who the
man might be he must love his children but them.
- I was just going to pass verdict when
suddenly I decided not to. I decided to punish him with help to fine.
- You are right. The stricter the
punishment is the lesser the crime rate rather than simple punishment.
of family happiness
- Hello my friend. How are you?
- Thank, you IТm fine and you.
- ThatТs all right. I heard you going
- Yes. Therefore I want to ask you
about ups and of a family life.
- There is something admiring. You
understand that you were meant for each other. But after marriage you couldnТt
possibly understand what do you must do that your family life will happiness.
- New that you are married. Tell me
please about problem of family life. Well, I suppose that the first problem is
homework, because I work every day.
- What about your wife?
- Probably she hasnТt a job.
- No, she has a job.
- Why do you help her?
- I think no matter that you work you
must help her.
- I suppose the homework that was
evidently meant to wives.
- OK, what kind of problem do you know
- Money. Now that increase costs our
stinks increase too. I want to tell you about ups of a family life it is had
careers and job; birth of baby to earn enough to live on.
- Thank you. I learned much from you.
profession of a teacher
- Dear daughter letТs discuss choice of
profession for you. What kind of profession do you like?
- Mamma IТd like the profession of a
- IТm very glad that you have just
chosen this profession.
- No mamma I can tell you I want to
become a teacher.
- How was it that you had never spoken
about it with me anyway?
- I knew that youТll ask me about my
profession. I think I am meant for children I love them very much and I want to
- My dear daughter I have nothing but
admiration for you for your words. I am proud of you.
- Thank you mamma IТd say this to my
teachers they were kind souls.
- I know whether your teachers were
busy or not they always find time for us.
- You are right, but I thank to you
because you supported me without you I couldnТt possibly take my decision.
