THE LION AND THE MOUSE
A lion was sleeping under a tree. Suddenly he heard some noise and opened his eyes. He saw a little mouse near his nose. He caught her by the tail. The mouse was frightened and cried, "Oh, please, sir, let me go." "Why did you make so much noise?" said the lion angrily.
"I am sorry. I was only looking for something to eat. Let mc go. Perhaps, I shall help you one day."
The lion laughed, but he let the mouse go. He was a kind lion.
One day a young hunter was walking in the forest when he heard the lion's roars. He called up other hunters and they put a net near the lion's drinking place. When the lion felt thirsty, he went to the river. I le didn't see the net and got into it. He roared and struggled but he couldn’t do anything to free himself.
Suddenly he saw the mouse. The little animal was working on the net with her teeth. Soon she cut the ropes and freed the lion. "You laughed at me when I promised to help you," said the mouse. "When I heard you roaring I ran to help you, and now you see what I have done for you."

Some gentlemen were sitting in a little restaurant in the country. They had their dogs with them which were lying quietly under the table. The gentlemen talked about their dogs, what was good and what was bad about them.
After some time the door opened, and an old lady came in with a dog. She sat down at the next table, ordered something to eat and listened to the gentlemen's conversation. When the gentlemen noticed this, they started to tell each other in loud voices how clever their dogs were.
One of them said, "You won't believe how intelligent my dog is. When I want some eggs, I can send him to the supermarket, and he'll get them. And he will only take fresh eggs. Isn't that clever?"

One day my mother suggested that we should go there, and our family began to discuss our plans for summer holidays. We decided that it was a wonderful idea. So time flew quickly, and one summer day our family started for our journey to Sevastopol. We got there by train and at last I had an excellent opportunity to go round the city, to see the places of interest. You know, there are a lot of historical monuments in this city and besides, wonderful seashore. We enjoyed our staying in Sevastopol. Then we decided to visit our relatives who lived in Odesa. We liked our trip from Sevastopol to Odesa very much. The Black Sea was calm. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the lounge chairs. While resting in Odesa we went boating and swimming, lay in the sun on the beach.
In the evening we either went for a walk or dropped in a cafe to have an ice cream or juice. My father showed me the beautiful monuments to the famous people who had lived in Odesa, museums and the Opera House.

Today is Natalia's birthday. Let's congratulate her and sing "Happy Birthday" for her. Do you know the story of this song? Would you like to listen to it? Here are some new words:
going for a song — to sell at a very low price;
royalties — sum paid to the owner of the copyright or patent;
in public — openly, not in private.
In English going for a song means something is for sale at a very low price. But what do real songs cost? They aren't cheap. Let's look at the most famous English song of all — "Happy Birthday to You". People have been singing it at birthday parties for more than one hundred years. Two American sisters called Patty Smith Hill and Mildred Hill wrote the song. Its first title was "Good Morning to All". The sisters taught at a kindergarten in Louisville, Kentucky. Their song was in a little book called Song Stories for Sunday School. They sold their song to the Sengstack family of Princeton, New Jersey. The Sengstack family earned one million dollars every year for the song. How? The answer is royalties. People must pay royalties when they sing "Happy Birthday" in public, for example, at the theatre, on television or in a film. Then the Sengstack family sold "Happy Birthday" to an American company called Warner Chappell. Did they sell it for a song? Absolutely not. Warner Chappell paid twenty-five million dollars for it.

Mr Wilson was a London businessman. He had to travel all over the world.
Once he went to China on business. It was his first time there and he did not speak Chinese. In the evening he felt hungry and decided to go to a restaurant. Soon he found a small restaurant which he liked very much, because it was nice, with very clean table cloths and white napkins on the tables.
The waiter did not understand English and so Mr Wilson tried to show with his hands that he was hungry and wanted something to eat.
The waiter smiled, he understood.
After some time he brought him some soup. It was excellent. Fifteen minutes later he brought him a plate full of small pieces of meat. Mr Wilson found it very good but he did not know what he was eating.
He wanted to find out what kind of meat it was. "Perhaps, it's goose or duck," he thought.
Suddenly he had an idea: he took a piece of meat, showed it to the waiter and asked, "Quack, quack?"
The waiter smiled and answered, "Bow-wow."

Some people read for instruction and some for pleasure, but the majority read from habit. I belong to that group. Let us admit that reading with us is just a drag that we cannot get along without.
Books are necessary for me. I never travel far without enough reading matter. But when I set off for a long journey, that problem is really great. I have learned my lesson. Once I fell ill in a small town in Java and had to stay in bed for three months. I came to the end of all the books I had brought with me, so I had to buy the schoolbooks from which intelligent Javanese, I suppose, got knowledge of French and German. So, I read again after twenty-five years the plays of Goethe, the fables of La Fontaine and the tragedies of Racine. I have the greatest admiration for Racine, but I admit that to read his plays one after the other requires a certain effort in a person who is ill. Since then I have made a point of travelling with a large sack full of books for every possible occasion and every mood.
There are books of all kinds: volumes of verses, novels, philosophical works, critical studies, biographies on history. There are books to read when you are ill and books to read when your brain wants something to work at; there are books for bad weather; there are books to read at the sea, and there are books you can read when you can read nothing else.
Post-listening Read the statements and say if they are true (T) or false (F).
In the reign of Queen Elizabeth two plants were brought to England for the first time by Sir Walter Raleigh - the tobacco-plant and the potato. Sir Walter had sailed across the seas to America in search of new lands; and he brought back both these plants with him.
At first people did not like the potato at all. Nobody wished to eat it. Yet Sir Waiter told them how useful it would be. He said that when the corn-harvest was not good, people did not need to starve if they had a lot of
Queen Elizabeth listened to what Sir Walter said, and had potatoes served up at her own table. The people who dined with her majesty were obliged to eat them. But they said that the potato was poisonous, because it belongs to many other poisonous plants. So nobody wanted to eat potatoes, and
they were left for the pigs.
The people did not find out their mistake till many years afterwards. The poor potato was forgotten till the reign of the French King Louis XVI. when there lived a Frenchman who grew plants for food. He was sure that he could make the potato a great help to the country. People laughed at him at first and did not want to take any notice of what he said. But he went on growing the potato till it was very good. Even then no one wanted to taste it till the king said that potatoes were good to eat. The king had large pieces of ground planted with potatoes, and he went about with the flower of the potato in his button-hole. Soon people began to find out how good wholesome potatoes were, and they liked them more and more. Now there is hardly any vegetable that is more loved by people.

In the fifteenth century people knew only three continents: Europe, Asia, and Africa. They knew nothing about such a big continent as America.
The man who was thought to be the discoverer of America was born in 1451 in Italy. His name was Christopher Columbus. He became a sailor at an early age. Knowing that the Earth was round, he decided to reach India by sailing to the west. It was very difficult for him to organise his expedition as nobody wanted to help him. Many years after the Spanish government gave him some money for his expedition. He was able to set sail only in
1492, on the 3rd of August.
The voyage was very dangerous and difficult. His men insisted on returning home, but Columbus did everything he could to make them continue their westward voyage. On the 12th of October, his ships reached land. When they landed, they saw strange trees and flowers. Men and women with olive-coloured skins gathered around them and looked at them with great surprise. It was one of the Bahama Islands. But Christopher Columbus thought it was one of the islands which lie off the coast of Asia and called
it San Salvador.
Columbus's second voyage to America took place in 1493. This time he discovered some other islands of the West Indies and made some settlements there.
On the third voyage he came to South America.
In 1502 he made his last voyage. This time he coasted along the shores of Central America. In 1506 he died in Spain being sure that he had reached Asia and knowing nothing of his great discovery of the New World.
discoverer - a person who has made a discovery; to be able to - to have the power, means or opportunity; to insist - to urge strongly against opposition; to declare that a purpose cannot be changed;

discovery - the act of discovering something.
