Texts for listening with keys
Are you afraid of snakes? There are 25,000 different kinds of snakes everywhere in the world. There are no snakes at all in the Arctic, Antarctic, New Zealand, Ireland, Polynesia and the Azores. Every year snakes kill between 30,000 and 40,000 people – about half of those deaths are in India.
Some snakes – the King Cobras, for example – can even bite and kill you after they are dead!
Some snakes kill with poison called venom. They bite you and the venom goes into the blood or the nervous system. The most dangerous venom comes from the sea-snakes in the Western Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Snakes carry their venom in special long teeth called fangs. Fangs can be very long – sometimes even 2 inches. Some snakes don`t bite, they spit! They are called spitting cobras and they come from Africa. They are accurate over a distance of 3 metres. If (and when) a snake bites you, you must tell yourself not to be afraid because the poison can enter your blood or nervous system more quickly if you are nervous and agitated.
Some snakes don`t bite, they squeeze until the victim cannot breathe. They are called constrictors. The constrictors are bigger than the poisonous snakes. The biggest is the anaconda – it can be 13 metres long. The anacondas can kill rabbits, pigs and even people.

My name is barney Clark. I`m thirteen, and I live in a part of London called Richmond on the river Thames. It`s far from the centre of London and doesn`t have a lot of high buildings. It`s like a country town. In Richmond Park there are deer, and from the park you can see the city on one side, and green hills on the other side.
There are four people in my family – me, my brother Ben, who is four years old, and my mother and father. My mum is a tourist guide for Richmond (because a lot of tourists come to visit it) and my father works in a college. We live in a house with my grandmother – she has a flat downstairs.
I go to school on weekdays. My favourite subjects are art and science. But I play jazz band and practice with them every week, and have extra music lessons too – so I`m very busy.
What do I do at weekends? I go train-spotting – that`s my hobby. Train-spotting is really “collecting” the numbers of trains. On Sundays I buy a special ticket and go all around London, and when I see a train I write down its number in my note-book.
On Sundays, friends of the family often come to our house for lunch. They stay all day and we usually go for a walk – in Richmond Park, of course!

Next week we1ll have got a number of excursions and activities planned for you. I am going to give you an idea of what we are going to have.
On Monday we are going to Regent`s Park after lunch where we have booked some tennis courts for the whole afternoon. It will be at about one o`clock. So please don`t forget to bring your tennis things with you on Monday morning, rackets and balls if you have got any. If you don`t, we can rent them at the place.
Then, on Tuesday afternoon, at half past two, we have organized a visit to the Scotland Yard museum where Inspestor Leistred will show you round and talk to you about world-known crimes and criminals. So, if you are not there at the place at half past two on Tuesday, I`ll know it`s because you`ve got a guilty conscience.
On Wednesday you`ve got a free afternoon. But in the evening, at 7 o`clock, we are going to have a picnic on the bank of the Avon river, opposite the golf course. If you have got guitars which you can play, bring it with you. We`ll have a kind of music and song competition. I hope you will enjoy the evening.
Then, on Thursday, we`ve arranged a mixed football match against the Coventry Language School. Mixed means that both boys and girls are going to play. The match starts at a quarter to two and it will be held in the nearest in the park. If you want to play, give me your name afterwards.
On Friday we are going to London for the day. The coach is going to leave outside the hostel at half past eight – not a quarter to nine. If you are late, we shall leave without you. Don`t forget to bring your packed lunch. We`ll visit the Tower of London, the Natural History Museum and the National Gallery. We will come back at 7 p.m. There will be no time for shopping.

Scotland Yard museum

Fast Food restaurants and cafes are very popular all over the world. But they aren`t like ordinary restaurants.
There aren`t waiters. You order your food at the counter and pay for it at the same time. You get your food in a bag or a box. There are no plates. There aren`t any knives, forks and spoons. You eat with your fingers.
Drinks are all in paper or plastic cups. There are no saucers. You eat your meal. Then you throw all the bags, boxes and cups away.
It` easy. It`s cheap and it`s fast.
