Fashion for kids

Last week, I bought my nine-year-old son a new pair of trainers that were reduced in a sale. They fit him fine and they looked good, but afterwards he didn't seem very happy with our bargain. (1)____ I seriously thought about taking the shoes back to the shop to exchange them for a more expensive and fashionable make. But why should I pay money I can’t afford, or get into debt just because of peer pressure?

One boy in my son's class wears jewellery and clothes with designer labels to school. He even wears Calvin Klein aftershave! And he isn't old enough to shave! I spoke to him and he told me why he had to have the latest fashions. One day he had worn his old trainers to school. (2)_____ When his pals saw him, they called him a tramp! He went straight home and put on his new trainers. His mum isn't well off, but she always finds the money so that he looks good in front of his mates.

I've seen children as young as six going round shoe shops and fashion boutiques looking for the latest styles, desperate for the expensive designer clothes they see on TV. What's wrong with these kids? (3)_____ Or our materialistic, consumer society?

All the major fashion labels have got special children's brand. It's a market which generates £5 billion a year in the UK alone. The big clothing companies and chain stores exploit children at both ends of the production line. (4)______And in our shopping centers full of child consumers competing with each other to be up to date.

If you're a parent, don't give your kids the clothes and fashion accessories they ask for. (5)____ Because one thing is sure: you won't make your kids happy by spoiling them.


TASK 2

Read the following text about pavement art. Decide if the statements 6-11 are true (T) or false (F)

6. The picture of Batman and Robin was painted on a burning house.

7. Julian's pictures seem real only if you look at them from one side.

8. Julian photographs his drawings because he worries people will damage them.

9. People often stop to watch Julian draw.

10 Julian only makes one type of art.

11. Julian disagrees with some traditional ideas.


Art For People

I was walking along a quiet city street when suddenly I saw the most amazing thing: three young women were standing on a narrow window ledge on the top of a building which was on fire. Below them Batman and Robin were climbing up a rope to save them as a crowd of people stood and stared. What was really strange was that everything seemed to be happening in a large hole in the pavement in front of me. I couldn't believe my eyes. It took me a few seconds to realize it wasn't real; it was a work of art.

The man responsible for it was Julian Beever, a British artist known as the 'pavement Picasso', who has been drawing his colorful masterpieces in cities around the world since the 1990s. Julian uses a method called 'anamorphosis' to create his wonderful drawings in three dimensions. It's a question of perspective: from one side the 3Dillusion is perfect, but from the other side the drawing makes no sense.

Julian draws in chalk, so his work is vulnerable to the weather: if it rains, the drawings disappear. It's hard work and it can take up three days to complete a drawing, so Julian always checks the weather forecast very carefully. His final goal is to take a photograph of his creation before it gets washed away. However, sometimes Julian has to wash off his own unfinished drawings because he hasn't received permission to use the public pavement as his canvas.

The process of making the drawings is really worth seeing, so Julian often has an audience. In some ways he's a street performer, and the spectators enjoy the show as much as the end result.

He does 2D drawings, too: portraits of famous people like Princess Diana or Bill Clinton, copies of old masters, and self-portraits. And also wall murals, collages and oil paintings (both landscapes and still lifes).

Julian's work shows that you don't need to work in a studio to be an artist, and that you don't need a frame for every painting. He firmly believes that art shouldn't be locked away in galleries, libraries and glossy art books. 'My art is for anybody, it's for people who wouldn't go into an art gallery. It's art for the people'.

USE OF ENGLISH

Time: 20 minutes

TASK 1

Read the following text about an interesting social experiment. Use the words in bold to form one word for each gap 1-9

Subway Music In Washington DC

Most of us who live in a city know what it means to spend 30 minutes in the subway (1) rush through corridors and then trying to get into terribly (2) crowd trains. Well, this guy and this morning was (3) difference. He stopped at one of the entrances to the station and played six (4) beauty Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. Three minutes after he started, a man noticed him and stopped for a few seconds. A minute later the (5) music received his first one dollar trip. The person who was most (6) interest was a 3-year-old boy, who really wanted to listen. His mother didn't let him stay very long, either.

In the 45 minutes, 1097 people passed by and only six stopped. The (7) violin collected 32 dollars. When he finished playing, nobody noticed and nobody knew that he was Joshua Bell, one of the best soloists in the world. He was playing a violin worth 3.5 million dollars and had played in a concert two days before where people paid an average of 100 dollars for their seats.

The aim of this real-life experiment was twofold. Can we notice beauty in an everyday place and at rather (8) usual hour? Do we recognize genius in an (9) expect situation? And the most troubling question of all: if we miss Joshua Bell playing Bach just because we are not in Carnegie Hall, how many other things do we miss?

'No problem, but please don't use the fireplace (14)___ you've paid me,' went the answer. The client agreed unwillingly.

Four hours later the wealthy man phoned the workman, shouting, 'My house is (15) ___ smoke!' 'I told you not to use the fireplace yet,' the mason replied. A little later he arrived (16) ___ Mr. Stetson's house and received his money. He immediately took a ladder, went up to the roof and took out his heaviest hammer.

TASK 1

Some people like the ballet or the opera... That's cool... Other people prefer jazz... That's cool too... Some even like folk music...Why not?... Others love admiring landscapes or sculptures in art galleries or visiting exhibitions of ancient masterpieces in museums... It's not my cup of tea, but if that's what turns you on, it's OK with me... Then there are the TV addicts... They never miss an episode of their favoutite soap operas... And they can tell you the name of every talentless presenter on television. And I don't criticise them for that... My girlfriend's father is the newsagent's best friend. He reads three papers every day, two broadsheets and a tabloid for the sport, two weekly magazines and he's subscribed to a monthly political review... He watches almost every news broadcast and current affairs programme on television... And listens to the radio when he goes out... And I just say it's his life and he can do what he likes... So, why does everyone think there's something wrong with me just because of what I like doing in my free time? I like playing video games. What's the problem with that? Well, the thing is I'm an adult. I'm 27 and people think I'm too old for video games... They don't know what they're talking about. Apparently 56% of all gamers are aged between 24 and 44! Millions of intelligent adults around the world enjoy playing video games. Why? Because video games are good. You need to use your brain a lot more than you do to watch TV. They're full of excitement and drama. And in my humble opinion, they're a lot more fun than the opera... So if you're an adult and you love video games, don't be shy. Tell everyone you know and tell them why. There's nothing to feel ashamed of.


TASK 2

We went into the staff room of a comprehensive school in Bristol and asked some teachers this question... 'What annoys you about your job?' Here's what they said...

  1. Just one word: 'Whatever'. I hate it when my students answer questions with 'whatever'. It means 'I don't care', or 'I've got no opinion'. It's so passive. 'Do you beleive in the death penalty?' 'Whatever.' 'Do you want the test on Tuesday or Thursday?' 'Whatever'. 'How about a lesson on women's rights for March 8th?' 'Whatever'.

  2. I enjoy teaching. I like most of my pupils a lot. They're not always as hard-working and conscientious about their written work as they should be, but they're imaginative and really participate in the classes... The only thing that annoys me about my job is the administration, you know all the paperwork I have to do.

  3. Cheating. They cheat in exams and in the homework we set them. Of course, not everyone does it, but it really annoys me. If I could teach my pupils just one thing, it would be that studying hard and revising for exams is good, and cheating is bad.

  4. There isn't much that annoys me about my job. Well, correcting homework can be hard work, and taking the register is a waste of time, and sometimes with my favourite classes the bell goes too soon, you know just when we're starting something interesting. But, really I'm lucky. My students are talented, active and motivated.

  5. A lot of kids have no respect. They don't respect teachers, or their classmates, or school property. They steal the chalk, the board markers and library book, they write graffiti on the desks and lockers, they destroy textbooks, they fight in the playground, they miss lessons and turn up late...Shall I go on?

  6. My pupils are fine, but some parents are really difficult. They won't accept that their children aren't perfect. For example, one boy kept playing truant, and his dad said it was my fault for not making the lessons more interesting! And there's a mother who always does her daughter's project work even when I ask her not to.
