d). Письмо 4 мин
T.: I suggest you to read a letter of a teenager to his friend. This letter is divided into several parts, which of them has gaps that you need to fill in, while working in groups. Each participant has his own sentence to work with, and then you should connect them into one text.
My parents always know better. They keep telling me what to do. Of course very often they’re right, but there is no point in arguing with them. Sometimes I’m fed up with talking to them. Yesterday my mother asked me if I was ever pleased with anything. She said she was sick of listening me complain all the time. I wonder why they keep criticizing everything I do or say. They allow my brother to do anything he likes without asking them. I don’t think my parents believe in both boys and girls equally.
T.: now we can fill in our problems column. What problem does this girl have with her parents?

2. What do they recommend other parents to improve relations with their children?
Teenager 2: I think to all parents out there, you should communicate every single day
with them, unless it’s just a normal conversation. When you’re concerned about them,
like if you see them maybe going to their room a bit more frequently, you see them
having a bit more problems at school, maybe their grades are going down a little bit,
show a bit of empathy for them.
Teenager 1: Advice that I would give to parents for supporting their teenager and that
is, number one, take an interest in their life, like really be focused on your child no
matter what, no matter if you’ve got work commitments. You always need to know.
Teenager 4: Get really, really involved in their life but not make it seem that you’re
getting involved so it won’t look embarrassing for them.
Teenager 6: I would tell the parents who are watching this video to sort of put yourself
in your kid’s shoes and try and remember back to when you were a teenager.
Teenager 1: Show your children that you trust them even if they are going out and
doing something. Don’t give them that lecture.

THE YOUNGER GENERATION KNOWS BEST
Old people are always saying that the young are not what they were. The same comment is made from generation to generation and it is always true. It has never been truer than it is today. The young are better educated. They grow up more quickly and are not so dependent on their parents. They think more of themselves and do not blindly accept the ideals of their elders. Events which the older generation remembers vividly are nothing more than past history. This is as it should be. Every new generation is different from the one that preceded it.
The old always assume that they know best for the simple reason that they have been around a bit longer. They don’t like to feel that their values are being questioned or threatened. And this is precisely what the young doing. They are questioning, they take leave to doubt that the older generation has created the best of all possible worlds. What they reject more than anything is conformity. Office hours, for instance, are nothing more than enforced slavery. Wouldn’t people work best if they were given complete freedom and responsibility? And what about clothing? Who said that all the men in the world should wear drab grey suits and convict haircuts? Why have the older generation so often used violence to solve their problems? Why are they so unhappy and guilt-ridden in their personal lives, so obsessed with mean ambitions and the desire to amass more and more material possession? Can anything be right with retrace? Haven’t the old lost touch with all that is important in life?
These are not questions the older generation can shrug off easily. Their record over the past forty years or so hasn’t been exactly been spotless. Traditionally, the young have turned to their elders for guidance. Today, the situation might be reversed. The old – if they are ready to admit it- could learn a thing or two from their children. One of the biggest lessons they could learn is that enjoyment is not “sinful”. Enjoyment is principle one could apply to all aspects of life. It is surely not wrong to enjoy your work and enjoy your leisure; to shed restricting inhibitions. It is surely not wrong to live in the present rather than in the past or future. This emphasis on the present is only to be expected because the young have grown up under the shadow of the bomb; the constant threat of complete annihilation. This is their glorious heritage. Can we be surprised that they should so often question the sanity of the generation that bequeathed it?
