Text 7

Helen packed a small suitcase, said goodbye to her mother and hurried out of the house to catch the bus to the station. There was no one else waiting at the bus stop, so it looked as if a bus had just left. Helen looked at her watch anxiously: it was already two o'clock. Her train left at two-thirty, and since it would take at least twenty minutes to reach the station, she did not have much time to spare, even if a bus came along at once. Just then a taxi came slowly down the road. Helen knew that the fare to the station was at least five shillings, which was more than she could afford; but she quickly made up her mind that it would be well worth the extra


expense in order to be sure of cattching her train. So she stopped the taxi and got in. She told the driver that shie had to catch a train which left at half past two. The man nodded and said thiat he would take a short cut to get her to the station in good time.

All went well until, just as they w/ere coming out of a side-street into the main road that led to the station, the taixi ran into a car. There was a loud crash and Helen was thrown forward so violently that she hit her head on the front seat. Both drivers got out and began slhouting at each other. Helen got out as well, to ask them to stop quarrelling, but neither of them took any notice of her at all.

Helen was now quite sure that sttie was going to miss her train, although she was not very far from the stationi. She was wondering what to do when a bus came into sight, going in the direection of the station. The bus stop was not far off, so Helen got her suitcase ouit of the taxi and ran towards the bus, which had stopped to let some passemgers get off. The bus conductor saw her running and did not ring the belli for the bus to start until she had got on. Helen reached the station just in ttime and managed to catch her train after all. But if she had waited for the tax:i driver to stop arguing, she would probably have missed it.

Text 8

A car drew up outside the Swan Hotel and a young man got out. Pausing only for an instant to see that he had come to the right place, he went into the hotel and rang the bell on the counter of the bar. Mrs Crump, the landlady, who was busy in the kitchen at the time, hurried out, wiping her hands. The young man raised his hat.

"Excuse me," he said. "I'm looking for my uncle, Air White. I believe he is staying here."

"He was staying here," Mrs Crump corrected him. "But I'm afraid that he went back to London yesterday."

"Oh dear," said the young man, looking disappointed. "I understood that he
was going to stay here until the end of the month. At least, that is what his
servant told me when I rang up his house." 15

"Quite right," said Mrs Crump. "He intended to stay here the whole of July,

as he always does. But yesterday he got a telegram to say that one of his

relatives was ill. So he caught the train back to London immediately."

"I wish he had let me know," the young man said. "I wrote him a letter saying

that I was coming. I've had all this trouble for nothing. Well, since he isn't

here, there is no point in waiting."

He thanked Mrs Crump and went out. Mrs Crump went to the window and

watched him drive off. When his car was out of sight, she called out:

"You can come out now, Mr White. He's gone."

Mr White came out of the kitchen, where he had been waiting.

"Many thanks, Mrs Cramp," he said, laughing. "You did that very well.

These nephews of mine never give me any peace. That young man is the

worst of them all. As you see, when he needs money, he even follows me into

the country. Well, perhaps next time he won't warn me by writing me a

Text 9

79 Mayfair Road, Plumpton, Kent.

October 10th, Dear Rosemary,

I was delighted to get your letter this morning. I really ought to have written to you—it was my turn, I know—but I have been terribly busy. The children seem to take up all my time. I am thinking of sending Ann to a nursery school. She'll be four next month. Baby has just started to walk and doesn't give me a moment's peace. But you know what it is like! How are all your children? I'm sure they love living in the country.

I'm afraid we can't come over to see you next Sunday, as you suggest. Tom's mother is coming to spend the day with us. What about the Sunday after that—the twenty-second ? We are free that day and should love to come. We're longing to see your new house.

Let me know, then, if the Sunday after next suits you. May we come for lunch ? We'd like to leave fairly early in the evening toavoid the heavy traffic on the roads. Love from us all, Edna.

Birch Cottage,

Little Tipping, Kent. October 15th. Dear Edna,

Yes, we'd love you to come the Sunday after next. And please do come for lunch. I'll try to think of something really special to cook. Ted says you can help him in the garden. He wasn't so pleased when I said that the children would help, too! I'm looking forward to seeing the baby. Can he really walk already ? Time certainly flies!

We've had a lot of work to do in the house, but it has been worth it. It is good to be living in the country once more. I never enjoyed town life, as you know. You ought to look for a house in the country. But I suppose Tom wouldn't like the long journey to work every day.

We shall expect you about midday. Look after yourself and don't work too hard. Love to you both. Rosemary.

Text 10

Shortly after the war, my brother and I were invited to spend a few days' holiday with an uncle who had just returned from abroad. He had rented a cottage in the country, although he rarely spent much time there. We understood the reason for this after our arrival: the cottage had no comfortable furniture in it, many of the windows were broken and the roof leaked, making the whole house damp

On our first evening, we sat around the fire after supper listening to the stories which our uncle had to tell of his many adventures in distant countries. I was so tired after the long train journey that I would have preferred to go to bed; but I could not bear to miss any of my uncle's exciting tales. He was just in the middle of describing a rather terrifying experience he had once had when his small sailing boat was carried out to sea in a storm, when there was a loud crash from the bedroom above, the one where my brother and I were going to sleep.

"It sounds as if the roof has fallen in!" exclaimed my uncle, with a loud laugh.

When we got to the top of the stairs and opened the bedroom door, we could see nothing at first because of the thick clouds of dust which filled the room. When the dust began to clear, a strange sight met our eyes. A large part of the ceiling had collapsed, falling right on to the pillow of my bed. I was glad that I had stayed up late to listen to n,y uncle's stories, otherwise I should certainly have been seriously injured, perhaps killed.

That night we all slept on the floor of the sitting-room downstairs, not wishing to risk our lives by sleeping under a roof which might at any moment collapse on our heads. We left for London the very next morning and my uncle gave up his cottage in the country. This was not the kind of adventure he cared for either!

Ex. 3. Discuss the following questions:

  1. Where did the two brothers have to spend a few days?

  2. Why did the uncle rarely spend much time in the country cottage?

  3. What happened when the uncle was telling a story?

  5. Where did they sleep that night?

Text 11

Mrs Brown was tired after her day's shopping in London, so went into a restaurant for a cup of tea before catching the home. When she had ordered her tea, she suddenly remembered that she had to buy some medicine for her husband, who had cough. "Is there a chemist's near here?" she asked the waiter.

"Yes, madam," the waiter said, "it's only about three minutes walk away. Turn right when you go out of the restaurant, then take the second turning to the left. You'll find a big chemist's about a hundred yards up the road on the right-hand side. It closes at five, but if you hurry, you'll just get there in time."

Mrs Brown followed the waiter's directions carefully and found the chemist's shop without any difficulty. She bought the cough mixture and started to make her way back to the restaurant. But after she had walked for about ten minutes and there was still no sign of the restaurant, she realized that she must have made a mistake.

"Oh! I am stupid! "said Mrs Brown. "I've left all my shopping in the restaurant and now I'm lost."

She was still wondering what to do when a policeman came up and asked if he could help. Mrs Brown explained what had happened. "Well, first of all," said the policeman, "we had better go back as far as the chemist's."

"Now," suggested the policeman, when they got to the chemist's, "let's go in this direction. It leads to the main road, where we shall probably find your restaurant." When they reached the main road, the policeman said:

"I think you'll find the restaurant you are looking for along there, on the

opposite side of the road."

Mrs Brown thanked the policeman for his help.

"I can't understand how I went wrong," she said. The policeman smiled.

"It's quite easy," he said, "to get lost in a big city like London."

Text 12

As the train approached the seaside town where I was going to spend my holidays, I went into the corridor to stretch my legs. I stayed there a short while, breathing in the fresh sea air and exchanging a few words with one of the passengers, whom I had met earlier on the station platform. When I turned to go back to my seat, I happened to glance into the compartment next to mine. Sitting there was a man who many years before had been my neighbour. He was a great talker, I remembered; it used to take hours to get away from him once he began a conversation. I was not at all sorry when he went to live in another part of London. We had not met since then, nor did I wish to meet him now, when my holiday was about to begin. Luckily at that moment he was much too busy talking to the man opposite him to catch sight of me. I slipped back into my compartment, took down my two suitcases and carried them to the far end of the corridor so as to be ready to get off the train as soon as it stopped. The moment the train came to a halt, I called a porter, who in no time at all had carried my luggage out of the station and found me a taxi. As I drove towards my small hotel on the outskirts of the town, I breathed a deep sigh of relief at my narrow escape. There was little chance that I should run into my boring ex-neighbour again. When I reached the hotel, I went straight to my room and rested there until it was time for dinner. Then I went down to the lounge and ordered a drink. 1 had barely raised the glass to my lips when an all too familiar voice greeted me. I had not escaped from my tiresome neighbour after all! He grasped me warmly by the hand and insisted that we should share a table in the dining-room. "This is a pleasant surprise," he said. "I never expected to see you again after all these years."

The clock struck a quarter past nine as Mary hurried into the big block of offices where she was going to work. Her bus had crawled through the dense city traffic, making her a few minutes late for her very first job. She resolved to leave home earlier the next day. Inside the building she had to wait once again, this time for the lift to take her up to the sixth floor. When at last she reached the door marked "J. King, Manager", she knocked rather nervously and waited. There was no answer. She tapped on the door again, but still there was no reply. From inside the next office she could hear the sound of voices, so she opened the door and went in.


Although i. was without doubt the sam* office she had bee* s*!own mtO W^e"
