Albertos new neighbour

Alberto took one look at his new neighbours and knew that his life was going to get more difficult. He watched them arrive in their big, noisy car and watched them get out. There they were, two of them, as big and as noisy as their car – and smelly and stupid as well.

‘Terrible!’ he thought. ‘How am I going to put up with them?’ He went to tell Mimi. Mimi was the friend he lived with.

‘Have you seen the new neighbours?’ he asked her.

‘No,’ she said. ‘Who are they?’

‘Two of them. The ones we don’t like. Big and noisy and stupid and smelly. Just like they always are.’

‘Oh no,’ said Mimi. ‘How awful! Still, I suppose we can just ignore them.’

‘I suppose you’re right,’ agreed Alberto. ‘We’ll just have to ignore them.’

For a few days, then, Alberto and Mimi tried to ignore their new neighbours. When the neighbours went out for a walk, Alberto and Mimi didn’t say hello to them. When the neighbours were in their garden, Alberto and Mimi went inside. This was OK for a few days, but, perhaps inevitably, things didn’t stay this way …

One day, Alberto woke up from his sleep to find one of the neighbours in his garden. ‘Mimi!’ he shouted. ‘Have you seen this!? He’s in our garden!!!! Look!’

‘How terrible,’ said Mimi. ‘Let’s call our staff and make sure they get rid of him immediately!’

Mimi went off to call their staff. Two minutes later, Alberto and Mimi’s head of staff was out in the garden trying to get rid of the unwelcome neighbour. ‘Go on!’ he shouted. ‘Get out of here! Go home!’ The neighbour didn’t say anything but gave Alberto and Mimi’s head of staff a dirty look, then he went back into his garden. Alberto and Mimi felt better and then asked their head of staff to prepare their lunch for them.

However, it wasn’t enough. Over the next few days, Alberto and Mimi often found one or other or both of their new neighbours walking around their own garden. It was terrible. To show how they felt, Alberto and Mimi went into their neighbours’ garden at night, when the neighbours were inside, and broke all the flowers.

The next morning one of the neighbours came to talk to Alberto.

‘Hey!’ he said. ‘Hey, you!’ Alberto ignored him, but he continued talking. ‘You came into our garden last night and broke all the flowers!’ Alberto didn’t say anything but gave his neighbour a dirty look. ‘Now I’m in trouble!’ continued his neighbour. ‘They think I did it!’

‘Who are «they»?’ asked Alberto.

‘My owners, of course,’ replied the neighbour.

‘Owners!?’ said Alberto. ‘You have «owners»?’

‘Course we do,’ said his neighbour. ‘Don’t you?’

‘Oh, no,’ replied Alberto. ‘We have staff.’

Alberto went to tell Mimi that the neighbours didn’t have staff but owners.

‘That’s not a surprise,’ said Mimi. ‘That explains everything. That’s why they’re so noisy and smelly and stupid. We need to make their owners become staff.’

The next day, Alberto and Mimi were actually very friendly with their new neighbours. They tried to explain how to make their owners become ‘staff’.

‘Listen,’ said Alberto to them. ‘It’s very easy. First, understand that the house is your house, not theirs.’

‘And second,’ said Mimi, ‘make sure that you are always clean.’

‘Make sure they give you food whenever you want!’

‘Sit on the newspaper while they are reading it!’

‘Sleep as much as possible – on their beds!’

‘And finally, try not to bark but to miaow instead.’

But it was no good. The neighbours just didn’t understand. After a week, they gave up.

‘It’s no good,’ said Mimi. ‘They’ll never understand – dogs have owners, cats have staff.’

My Favourite Armenian

While we say famous Armenians, the first person which comes to my mind and head is Monte Melkonyan. I have examined a lot about his life, what I find interesting, respectful in him, was that he left America and came to Armenia to protect our country. He is one of few Armenians who put his efforts into his nation’s development and benefits. Every Armenian should be proud of that we have Monte Melkonyan.

Monte Melkonian was an Armenian revolutionary, left-wing nationalist militant and commander. In his life one fact is very important, he took part in ASALA, he took part in the assassinations of several Turkish diplomats in Europe His life was full of challenges, difficulties, but he overcame everything. One of them was that he was later arrested and sent to prison in France. But then, he was released and in the following year, acquired a visa to travel to Armenia.

Monte was killed by Azerbaijani soldiers while surveying Merzili with five of his comrades in the aftermath of the battle. He was buried at Yerablur cemetery in Yerevan and declared a National Hero of Armenia in 1996.

Aunt Helen’s House-Reading Comprehension Multiple Choice

I’m going to tell you about my Aunt Helen’s house. It’s not her main house, that’s in the city. No, this house is by the lake. There was a small town by the lake called Miller’s Ford, but all the people moved away when the fishing and mining stopped about sixty years ago. But the houses stayed, of course. My Aunt Helen uses that house as a vacation home and she goes there for a few weeks every year to relax.

But staying in that house isn’t a relaxing experience. I think the house is haunted! I think there’s a ghost there from many many years ago. Helen says I’m silly and that I’ve got an over-active imagination. But there are many things that happen in that house that cannot be easily explained.

One day, shortly after getting up, I went to find my Aunt Helen to say «good morning» and I heard her talking in a room that she usually never uses. I think it used to be the nursery of the house when Miller’s Ford was a busy town in the 19th Century. I listened at the door and could hear Helen reading something out, or perhaps she was dictating a letter. I couldn’t hear any other person in the room with her so it wasn’t a normal conversation. I didn’t want to disturb my aunt, so I went back downstairs and went to make breakfast in the kitchen, which I ate on the porch that overlooked the lake. It was a beautiful sunny morning. Half an hour later, I heard my aunt’s car arriving. She had been to the local store to buy some bread and milk. I couldn’t believe it!

«What are you looking so shocked for?» she asked me.

«I thought you were in the old nursery, working on your letters, Auntie,» I replied.

«I never go in that room,» she said. «I haven’t been in that room for fifteen years.»

A few other things like that happened over the next few visits I made to that house and I grew to dislike it very much. Then, one day in my local library, I found a story in an old newspaper with the title «The Constant Babysitter». The story was that a baby had died in one of the houses by the lake at Miller’s Ford and the babysitter was blamed, a woman of 37 who was a family friend and had offered to look after the baby. But she spent all her time in the kitchen writing her letters and didn’t know that someone had climbed in the baby’s window and taken her. The baby was never found. The woman killed herself through depression after the baby’s disappearance and local people then said her ghost stayed very close to where the baby was left by the parents — in the nursery.

I never went back to that house, despite my Aunt Helen’s many invitations.

ESL Doctors Reading Comprehension Passage

When most people are ill with a non-life threatening condition they will most often see a General Practitioner, a GP, also called a Family Doctor. These doctors generally work in the local community in surgeries rather than in hospitals, so they are convenient for people to see for a consultation. However, other GPs can work in a very wide range of areas, such as in hospitals, in education and for insurance companies.

As the name suggests, GPs are doctors that do not have a specialty, such as a brain surgeon or cancer specialist: they are able to diagnose and treat all the possible diseases and problem that one of their patients might have. They can treat and manage most illnesses and perform some minor surgeries in their practice. Then for more serious cases they will refer the patient to a specialist that will work in a hospital.

If you are ill and need to see a GP you will normally need to make an appointment. Sometimes you can just walk into the surgery and see a doctor, but that is not very likely as GPs are normally very busy and all their appointment times will be fully booked. Often you have to wait several hours if not at least one of two days before you can get an appointment with a GP. If you are too ill to wait you have to go to a hospital and visit the accident and emergency department. 

GPs also make house-calls. These are when the GP comes to your house to treat you or see a patient. Most often a GP has to make house-calls to see elderly people who cannot get to the surgery easily. They might be ill and need to doctor to give them medicine or it could be that the GP just want to check on them and make sure that they are ok.

If you are ill, the doctor will normally prescribe you some medicine and tell you to go away for a few days before you go back and visit them again if you have not started to get better. The GP will also explain how you can have a better lifestyle that could prevent you from becoming ill in the first place. They will normally recommend that you stop smoking cigarettes (if you do), not to drink too much alcohol and to get exercise. Once you have your prescription you will need to visit a pharmacy to get the medicine the doctor prescribed you.

Tim’s Day

Every day Tim wakes up at five thirty when his alarm clock rings. He gets up and then goes to the bathroom and has a long, hot shower. After that he makes breakfast for him and his wife, Betty. Tim has coffee and two slices of toast and Betty drinks a cup of tea and eats a bowl of cornflakes. At six o’clock Tim brushes his teeth, always before he gets dressed because it is very important that he doesn’t get toothpaste on his clothes — Tim is a train driver and he wears a uniform! Finally, he kisses his wife and baby son and leaves his house in Watford at a quarter after six.

Tim starts work at seven o’clock and drives trains on the London Underground. He usually works in the mornings from Monday to Friday, but he sometimes works on the weekends too. At noon he stops work for half an hour to have his lunch. He eats cheese and tomato sandwiches which Betty makes for him, and drinks a bottle of milk. After lunch he works until four o’clock and then he goes home. In the evening he plays with his baby son, Ben, and watches TV with Betty. At ten thirty they all go to bed because they are very tired — and because they get up so early in the morning!

Just Married

Considering their wedding cost over $20,000 and took a year and a half to organize, you would be surprised to hear that Richard and Victoria Hammond now intend to forget it. Well, almost.

«It was a wonderful wedding, an unbelievable day,» says Victoria. «But we have so much we want to do together now, we are both looking to the future.» Her husband, banker and amateur race driver Richard, agrees. «Both our minds are now fixed firmly on the future. I’ll never forget our wedding ceremony or the reception we had at a cliff-side hotel afterwards, but there’s so much we want, so many hopes. Our marriage is so much more important than the wedding.»

«At the moment, we are still living with my parents,» explains Victoria, «so our first wish is to find our own place. We intend to start looking for a new house with all the modern conveniences in the suburbs in the new year.» Both Victoria and husband Richard have a lot of siblings. Do they intend to add to the extended Hammond family? «We plan on having two or three children ourselves,» Richard tells me. «Victoria is just wonderful with children and I can get 3 years paternity leave from my work, which is just perfect.»

The young couple has just returned from a two-week honeymoon spent in an authentic Scottish castle. Both the newly-weds are big travel lovers and Richard hopes this will continue. «I would like to go travelling as much as possible together. Travelling with someone else is such a sharing experience. I think it’s sad to experience all the wonderful places in the world and have no-one else there.» Victoria also has another great travel ambition that she might have to do alone. «I have always been fascinated by safari and my real wish is to go on safari. Richard has no interest in wildlife though.»

And what about the marriage itself? In a world with such a high divorce rate, how do Richard and Victoria hope to avoid all the problems that beset so many other couples? Richard explains thoughtfully that «our ambition is to always talk to each other. If you stop communicating, what chance do you have?» His wife goes along with that completely. «I hope that we can speak about things, but also not expect everything to be easy. I think many people expect the wedding to be the end of getting to know each other. I think it’s the start.»

The Story of the Aral Sea

In 2009 in Kazakhstan, a group of fishermen met on a Sunday afternoon. They were on the beach of the North Aral Sea. They ate food. They did some sports. Afterwards, they told stories and sang songs about the Aral Sea and fishing. It was a good party.

The fishermen were happy because there were fish in the water. For many years, there weren’t many fish. At one time, the Aral Sea in Central Asia was the fourth largest lake in the world. It had an area of 67,300 square kilometres. Two of the biggest rivers in Central Asia, the Amu Darya and the Syr Darya, went into the Aral Sea. But the water almost disappeared.

The Aral Sea was a busy place. Almost 20 percent of the Soviet Union’s fish came from here. 40,000 people lived and worked near the lake. Then people used the water in the two rivers for agriculture, so the water didn’t arrive at the Aral Sea. Also, it didn’t rain for many years.

Then, in 2005, the Kazakh government and the World Bank built a dam. The dam separated the north and south parts of the sea. Then the north part of the Aral Sea started to fill with water again.

Philip Micklin is a scientist. He studies the Aral Sea. In 2010 he said ‘Nature can come back.’ But in 2014, he saw satellite pictures of the east part of the Aral Sea. It was completely dry. 

In June 2015 a scientist from Uzbekistan, Yusup Kamalov, and a National Geographic reporter visited the Aral Sea. They found a huge desert. They stood on the sand. Once it was the edge of the water. Now the water is 80 kilometres away. They drove to the water. On the way, they passed oil and natural gas rigs. Kamalov said that every year there are more oil rigs. They arrived at the edge of the Aral Sea. The water was very salty. There were no fish. Kamalov said, ‘This is what the end of the world looks like’.

Jack was a young sailor. He lived in England, but he was often away with his ship.

Մի ամառ նա վերադարձավ երկար նավարկությունից հետո և գտավ նոր հարևանների իր մայրիկի տան կողքին: Նրանք ունեին շատ գեղեցիկ աղջիկ և շուտով Ջեքը սիրեց նրան շատ:

He said to her, ‘My next voyage will begin in a few days’ time, Gloria. I love you, and I’ll marry you when I come back. I’ll think about you all the time, and I’ll write to you and send you a present from every port.’

She MISSED an important meeting because she HAD FORGOTTEN that “halb neun” in German MEANT half past eight in English. So while she WAS HAVING breakfast her colleagues WERE already at the meeting. When she arrived “on time” , the meeting  HAD ALREADY FINISHED.
When she got back to England, Trisha JOINED a German course at her local college. While she WAS DRIVING to work every day she  LISTENED to language CDs. In the past few weeks her German  HAS IMPROVED a lot and now she KNOWS how to tell the time ! Right now she IS STUDYING hard for an examination. Next year Trisha PLANS to spend her summer holiday in a language school near Munich. After that, she hopes that her company WILL SEND her to Germany again.

Reading Comprehension – Elephants

Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Traditionally, two species are recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species. Other families of the order Proboscidea, including mammoths and mastodons are now extinct.

Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Male African elephants are the largest surviving terrestrial animals and can reach a height of 4 m (13 ft) and weigh 7,000 kg (15,000 lb).

All elephants have several distinctive features the most notable of which is a long trunk or proboscis, used for many purposes, particularly breathing, lifting water and grasping objects. Their incisors grow into tusks, which can serve as weapons and as tools for moving objects and digging. Elephants’ large ear flaps help to control their body temperature. Their pillar-like legs can carry their great weight. African elephants have larger ears and concave backs while Asian elephants have smaller ears and convex or level backs.

One of the biggest threats to elephant populations is the ivory trade, as the animals are poached for their ivory tusks. Other threats to wild elephants include habitat destruction and conflicts with local people. Elephants are used as working animals in Asia. In the past they were used in war; today, they are often put on display in zoos and circuses.

How I am going to celebrate the New Year

New Year’s Day is a national holiday celebrated on January 1st, the first day of the New Year. New Year holidays are often marked by fireworks, parades, and reflection upon the last year while looking ahead to the future’s possibilities. Many people celebrate New Year in the company of friends and relatives. Typically the customs and traditions of happy New Years Day involve celebrating with champagne and a variety of different foods. For many people celebrating New Year is their opportunity to learn from the prior year and make positive changes in their life. I love winter and New Year very much. I love spending it with my family, friends and relatives. Like every year my family members and I will decorate our Christmas tree with toys and colorful lights. I will buy presents for the members of my family as well. After New Year supper we love watching Christmas movies and shows. Then we exchange our gifts with the family members and guests.
