Good morning, dear friends! I am glad to see you happy in our class. Last time we spoke about the teenagers and their problems. But, in fact, their life is also very interesting. They have many hobbies and there are many ways in what teens can entertain themselves.
T. Let’s think and say how teens can spend their free time.
Have a picnic
Play computer games
T. You are right. And today we are going to speak about the role of music in the life of teenagers.
T. Listen to the story. What types of music are mentioned in it? (HMK Oxford team -2, unit1a)
It was a beautiful day. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky. The sun shone on the bay with its blue water and yellow sand. There were only three people on the beach. They were Sarah, Lee – her friend from school – and Alex, Sarah’s brother. Sarah and Lee danced to the music on the radio. Alex was bored.
Alex Could you change the station? I don’t like disco.
Sarah You used to like it.
Alex I used to like it when I was eight. That was three years ago! Disco’ horrible!
Alex What about this?
Lee I hate heavy metal.
Alex I love it. I think it’s great.
Sarah Could you find something different?
Lee Rap! That’s really cool.
Alex Oh no. I can’t stand rap. See you later.
T. (post-listening) Are the sentences true or false?
There were four people on the beach.
Sarah and Alex danced to the music.
Alex likes heavy metal.

3d Christopher Smith
The Glazebury Music Festival
A The Westbury Orchestra played to a big audience. The new concert hall was full. The
violin soloist was awful and the concert was terrible. It was a very bad concert.
B Twenty thousand people were at Big End’s concert. One guitarist fell off the stage. One
singer forgot the words of the song. But the music was very loud and the rhythm was
sensational. The audience loved it! It was a terrific concert!
C The Jackson Singers were on stage for two hours. The rhythm was fantastic. It was a great concert and we really enjoyed dancing.
D The Jon Trevis Four played some tunes from their new CD. The saxophone player was very good but the singer was terrible and the melodies were awful. It was a boring concert.
