More people than ever are quitting the UK in search of a better life abroad. Experts say the lure of a sunnier climate, combined with a discontent with home life and the high cost of owning a property in Britain, is causing people to leave in their thousands. Many of these `expatriates' head for countries such as France or Spain, where the laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle is a sharp contrast to the hectic pace in crowded Britain. But some are choosing far-flung destinations such as America, Australia, and New Zealand. Traditionally, the majority of those who have chosen to live abroad have been people of retirement age. These people are often more able to afford a foreign home and are likely to have become fed up with life in Britain, so look to find a place in the sun where they can spend their golden years. But some of the new generation of expatriates are younger people, or families, in search of a better quality of life. However, recent research has found that around 41% of Britons who moved abroad to start a new life were back in the UK within 12 months. Just under a third of people who relocated said they were happy and planned to stay where they were for the foreseeable future, while the rest said they were either still trying to settle in or that they divided their time between the UK and their new home. The research found that many people who move abroad looking for a better quality of life often find their new situation more difficult than life at home. The main reason people gave for returning was that they missed family and friends. For some it was financial worries or problems getting a job that drove them home. Others came back to Britain after being unable to overcome language and cultural difficulties.

I was here on time, so it must have come early! ___________ 8 I've been here since I was a child, but I think it's time for me to move on and try a slower, more rural way of life. ___________

Every day Peru's Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, is rediscovered by at least 1,000 tourists who are slowly destroying one of the wonders of the world. More people now come to this sacred citadel in a week than ever lived there in its 15th-century prime. The attempt to improve facilities for international visitors ­ better hotels, a helicopter service, and a planned cable car to replace the bus trip up the mountain ­ has only made the wear and tear worse. For nearly 500 years Machu Picchu was covered by impenetrable rainforests until in 1911, an American scholarexplorer, Hiram Bingham, stumbled upon it whilst he was looking for Vilacamba, the last refuge of the Incas from the Spanish conquerors. It's easy to see why so many want to flock here. The sight of the emerald green grass slopes and stone-coloured remains of Machu Picchu, flanked by its awesome, snow-capped peaks, is utterly breathtaking. It seems now, however, that Machu Picchu is falling victim to its own success. The primary concern is that the high volume of visitors is harming the site's infrastructure. A survey by Japanese geologists at Kyoto University has suggested the earth beneath the city is moving at a rate of up to one centimetre per month. There are also fears for the welfare of the porters who carry travellers' backpacks in all weathers along the high altitude Inca Trail. As a result, the United Nations cultural agency wants visitor numbers more than halved, which means that visitors must now wait four to five days before getting a place on a trek. Despite this, Machu Picchu remains the number one must-see in South America. And, as such, the hunt is now on for new Inca ruins as a viable, ecologically sound alternative.

1 Machu Picchu used to have a population of over 7,000. ___ 2 The improvement of facilities for tourists is causing environmental damage. ___ 3 Hiram Bingham set out to discover Machu Picchu in 1911. ___ 4 Machu Picchu is surrounded by mountains. ___ 5 Machu Picchu has been too successful as a tourist destination. ___ 6 Tourists must carry their own bags whilst they are walking along the Inca Trail. ___ 7 The United Nations cultural agency would like to reduce the number of tourists who visit Machu Picchu. ___ 8 Machu Picchu is no longer the most popular tourist attraction in South America because many tourists have now found some more ecological ruins to visit. ___

B Bend it like Beckham 1 Football's uncommon ability to bring a nation together is celebrated in this sweet, positive youth movie. Set in modernday London, the film tells the story of Jess, whose two greatest loves in life are David Beckham and kicking a ball about. 5 Unfortunately her family cling to traditional Asian values, and while they're willing to tolerate her fanaticism the very idea of their daughter joining a local girls' team makes them see red. But, encouraged by her new best pal, Jules, and dishy Irish coach, Joe, she defiantly signs on with the team. 10 Actresses Parminder Nagra and Keira Knightly both have winning personalities, but credit should also go to the writer and director for getting the balance right between humour and pathos, sporting and romantic action, not to mention negotiating the tricky business of filming football with 15 originality and finesse. C Cinema Paradiso 1 A successful movie director in his 40s, Salvatore returns home to Sicily after hearing of the death of Alfredo, the exprojectionist at the village cinema. Most of the film is a flashback to Salvatore's World War 2 childhood and 5 adolescence when, obsessed by movies, he is befriended by the wise and benevolent, though sometimes rather gruff, Alfredo. Their bond is one that contains many highlights and tragedies and ultimately shapes the way for Salvatore to move out of his run-down village to pursue a dream.

A Billy Elliot 1 Stephen Daldry's first feature film is set in the north-east of England during the miner's strike of 1984. A motherless boy, Billy Elliot, from a mining village, takes up dancing against the wishes of his father and older brother. Regrettably, the depiction of the working classes in Lee Hall's semi5 autobiographical script is somewhat stereotypical. The heart of the film, however, is in the relationship that Billy strikes up with his dance teacher. Mrs Wilkinson is a dispirited soul who finds as much genuine pleasure in nurturing the talent and hope of this 11-year-old as he does in the 10 discipline and support that she provides for him. The dancing is superb, but Daldry could be accused of overusing dance as a metaphor for escape and frustration, and the grand opera numbers sit a little uneasily, given that this film is essentially pitched as a realist comedy.

13 Read the text and answer the questions.

Is it easy to spot a liar? According to psychologists, the average human being lies to others once or twice a day. This is because deception ­ or `untruthfulness' ­ is a natural tendency amongst all living things. Many animals deceive others around them in order to get ahead in life. Birds, for example, pretend to be injured in order to distract predators from baby birds in their nest. Chimpanzees, when they are foraging for food and come across something tasty, will occasionally pretend not to have noticed the food so as not to alert the chimps nearby and lose their prize. So it is no surprise that human beings often deceive for exactly the same reasons: to save their own skins or to get something they can't get by other methods. Despite how often they engage in it, most people aren't experts at lying. People often make inconsistent facial expressions and body movements in a desperate attempt to seem believable and to suppress what they are really thinking. Because the muscle structure of the face is directly connected to the areas of the brain that process emotion, very few people ­ most notably, actors and politicians ­ are able to consciously control all of their facial expressions. Other signs of lying are an increased heartbeat, a faster rate of breathing, and a higher voice pitch. It would be logical to think that with these sorts of symptoms, we would be able to spot a liar easily. However, just as we are poor liars, it seems that we are equally hopeless at detecting lies. In a survey carried out at the University of Portsmouth in the UK, participants were able to detect a lie 44 percent of the time, and able to detect the truth 67 percent of the time. So are we better at detecting the truth than detecting lies? High-tech lie detectors or `polygraphs' are not much more accurate. They cannot detect lies as such; they merely detect the physical effects of emotions. These machines measure breathing, heart rate, and skin conductivity, which tend to increase when people are nervous, as they usually are when lying. On the other hand, the idea of being hooked up to a machine like this could easily produces symptoms of fear, anxiety and anger which are very similar to those responses used to detect a lie, which is one reason lie detector tests are inadmissible in court.

1 Birds protect their young by ... a injuring themselves. b injuring the predators. c behaving as if they are injured. 2 Human beings often tell lies to ... a protect their skin. b to avoid difficult situations. c to get away from other people. 3 The author says that actors ... a tell more lies than most people. b are good at lying. c are good at recognizing liars. 4 According to the text ... a people are better at telling lies than detecting lies. b people are better at detecting lies than telling lies. c people are bad at telling and detecting lies. 5 Lie detectors are able to recognize ... a all lies. b when a person is nervous. c some types of lies. 6 Lie detectors cannot be used in court because they ... a are not totally accurate. b break down very frequently. c can be bad for the health.

1 In the new village of Hamborne, in Kent, Robert Pickford goes to the bathroom and prepares for a new day. It is 2020. There is a slight hum as the family water purifier switches on, and as he walks down the hallway he taps the electricity 5 meter and sees it shows that the family is in credit: his own windmill generator and solar panels are putting more energy into the electricity grid than the household is using, adding to the family income. Downstairs his wife, Ela, is complaining. The so-called `smart 10 fridge' has malfunctioned and the order for milk and bread which should have reached the local delivery service has not been sent. The grocer, who employs a refugee from Vasalu, a Pacific island country that disappeared three years previously as sea levels rose, will have to be telephoned instead. 15 Richard normally works from home, but today is going in a shared hydrogen-powered car to the office on an industrial estate in the next town. When working at home, a telephone gadget in his ear, which operates on electricity generated by his brain, allows his 20 manager to speak to him at any time during working hours. Today as he drives to work he carefully picks his route to avoid traffic congestion charges on the motorway, or in any of the towns on the way. His company long ago moved out of its central London headquarters to cut costs. 25 The clampdown on preservatives in food and high oil prices mean that sending fresh food long distances is prohibitively expensive. The family keep chickens to have a supply of fresh eggs and grow vegetables because so much imported food is now an expensive luxury. The warmer climate means melons 30 can be grown outdoors, although it also has led to a malaria outbreak in nearby Tunbridge Wells. But life in Britain in 2020 is not all bad. The air is cleaner, public transport is much better, and because of congestion charges and home working, traffic jams are becoming a distant 35 memory.

Running a business can be stressful at any age, but when you're just 15 and have to juggle it with going to school and doing your homework, it's even more remarkable. And that's exactly what young entrepreneur, Luisa Bundy, designer of a range of soft toys called Little Bundies, has done. It all started when Luisa's mother bought her some modelling clay for her 12th birthday and she began experimenting with making small model figures based on her friends at school. The first batch went down a storm, and her friends encouraged her to make more. So she did, handing them out at Easter instead of eggs. As word spread around the school, Luisa introduced a form so she could take orders during the day and make the figures over the weekend. Her mother used to come home to find piles of order forms spread out on the kitchen table. She thought Luisa was going to get into serious trouble for doing business in the playground. But teachers' names were on the order forms too. Two years later, Luisa had made 13,000 Little Bundies. Prior to this, she had spent most weekends and holidays researching craft fairs across the south of England. At one fair she sold 250 figures in an hour at £2 a go. And she even researched the number of people that usually turned up to each fair, so she knew exactly the number she needed to make for the customers there. When she noticed that the majority of customers were buying the toys as gifts she designed a range of gift cards to accompany them. At this point, the volume of work was becoming overwhelming and she decided to seek advice from Sir Richard Branson, who had begun his Virgin empire as a teenager. On his advice she set up Bundy Creations Ltd, with her mother as director. Last year they took on the cost of exhibiting at a craft fair in the north of England, and it paid off. They were spotted by a major toy manufacturer, which quickly signed the figures to a three-year soft toy licensing deal. According to the manufacturer, they have already practically sold out.

1 How old was Luisa when she first started making clay models? ___________________________________________ 2 Did the first figures she made get a positive reaction at school? ___________________________________________ 3 What did Luisa's mother find on the kitchen table? ___________________________________________ 4 Did Luisa get into trouble at school for doing business in the playground? ___________________________________________ 5 How much did Luisa charge for each figure? ___________________________________________ 6 How did Luisa know how many people would come to the gift fairs? ___________________________________________ 7 Who did Luisa contact to ask for advice? ___________________________________________ 8 Who discovered Luisa's model figures at a gift fair last year? ___________________________________________

no longer. High property prices, student debt, and broken relationships mean that your child is highly likely to return home several times before finally making a go of it on their own. A survey last year for the Social Market Foundation revealed that one in four people aged between 20 and 30 said they had gone back twice or more since leaving home. One in eight had returned home more than three times! Perhaps unsurprisingly, the survey of 1,044 people showed that men were more likely to do this than women ­ 28 per cent of men, as opposed to 18 per cent of women. Suzie Hayman, counsellor, broadcaster, and author says that, while high property prices and student debt are both compelling factors pushing twenty-somethings back into the arms of their parents, it's not the whole story. She believes that many parents have brought this situation on themselves by not bringing their children up to be independent. She feels that mothers are often guilty of this with sons, doing all their washing, cooking, and clearing up into adulthood, leaving them ill-equipped for a life on their own. Today's children are driven everywhere and generally expect everything to come easily. Little wonder, then, that they race back to the security of home when things don't go well in the outside world. Despite this, most parents don't dread having their children return home ­ far from it. Many may secretly be delighted, because the child's departure may have revealed glaring holes in their relationship with each other. Other parents are keen for children to return because it makes them feel more valued. Often parents find it quite tough to go from being the whole world to their child to suddenly becoming unnecessary when they leave home. On the other hand, it can be enormously frustrating for parents, who may have only just adjusted to having an adult relationship again, to find themselves sharing their home with another adult ­ who insists on behaving as if they were still a child.

Englishwoman Sets a Sailing Record February 8, 2005 Ellen MacArthur yesterday became the fastest person to sail solo around the world after enduring stormy seas, 65-mile-anhour winds, a broken sail, burns, bruises, and exhaustion ­ even a close encounter with a whale. MacArthur, a 28-year-old Englishwoman, completed the 26,000-mile circumnavigation by crossing an imaginary finishing line between Ushant, France, and Cornwall, on the south coast of England. Her final time was 71 days, 14 hours, 18 minutes, and 33 seconds. Her 75-foot trimaran, B & Q, broke the record set by Francis Joyon, who finished in 72 days, 22 hours, 54 minutes, and 22 seconds in February 2004. Later, she told her team, `I feel absolutely exhausted but I'm elated to be here. The whole voyage has been very draining, and there's a lot of things going round in my head. But it's great that I can finally switch my brain off and relax in the company of others, which I've really missed.' British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Queen Elizabeth II both paid tribute to MacArthur. French President Jacques Chirac, in whose country MacArthur is already a household name, also sent his congratulations. MacArthur's journey began on November 28, and from then on, she slept an average of 30 minutes at a time and four hours in any day. She reheated freeze-dried meals on a single burner stove while living in an area measuring 5 feet by 6? feet. Her water supply was desalinated from the sea. She spent Christmas Day in a storm, but after crossing the half-way mark at Cape Horn on New Year's Eve, she built a fourday lead on the pace set by rival Francis Joyon. A week later, during the worst storms of MacArthur's career, she badly burned her arm on a generator. Buffeted by heavy storms in the southern ocean, MacArthur slipped a day behind Joyon. By late January, she was back in contention after crossing the equator. Her 75-foot boat hit a large fish and nearly struck a whale, and then light winds threatened. But a storm helped push her back into the lead.

11 Read the text and answer the questions. What are friends for?

Recent research has shown that at any one time in our lives we have around 30 friends, six of whom we think of as close. Over a lifetime we will make almost 400 friends, but we will keep in touch with fewer than 10% of them. Almost 60% of us claim that our friendships are more important to us than career, money or family. Other studies show that men have, on average, one fewer close friends than women do, and that both men and women find their friendships with women more emotionally satisfying than those with men. We interviewed some people to find out more. Jamie, a TV producer in his 30s For me, anyone who I like, trust, and find interesting, male or female, is a potential friend. Really close friends I could probably count on one hand. Those are the people who stand by me even when things go pear-shaped or I behave badly, which does obviously happen from time to time! Susannah, a jewellery-maker in her 30s I make new friends easily. I love getting to know people but I must admit that I also tend to drop friends quite easily. For me, it's very important to have balance in a friendship. I don't like it when friends expect too much from me. That's when I think enough is enough ­ time to move on.

Are these statements true (T) or false (F)?

According to the research ... 1 we lose touch with the vast majority of our friends. ____ 2 women have more close friends than men. ____ 3 men find friendships with other men, rather than women, emotionally more rewarding. ____

Write the name of the person who ...

4 chooses friends that can be of practical help. _________ 5 says they have very few close friends. _________ 6 likes to have friends that really understand them. _________ 7 doesn't like friends to be very demanding. _________ 8 thinks that it is important for your friends to like similar things. _________ 9 thinks that a true friend supports you through hard times. _________

Touching the Void, a drama documentary directed by Ken Macdonald, tells the story of two young men from the North of England, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, both in their early twenties, who in 1985 set out to climb the 21,000-foot Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes. It's a modest `Alpine-style' climb with no back-up team, no helicopters, and no equipment other than what they carry in their packs. They make it to the top in three days, but on the way down (when apparently 80 per cent of accidents occur) they run into terrible weather and a treacherous ridge. Simpson has a bad fall that drives a bone up through his shattered knee and Yates tries to lower him down the mountain, 150 feet at a time. But there comes a point when Simpson is hanging in mid-air, irretrievable, and probably dead. To save his own life, Yates cuts the rope and returns to base camp, a decision he will have to live with for the rest of his life. Simpson actually survives in a crevasse the size of St Paul's dome. Crippled and in terrible pain, he makes the journey back in four days, one of the great stories of survival. This story has been on moviemakers' minds for some years. Then, in 2003, Macdonald had the brilliant idea of shooting the movie using actors to play Simpson and Yates, and to have the real Simpson and Yates talking both to camera and over the action, as a form of commentary. The actors hardly say a word. The film was shot entirely on location in Peru and in the Alps with some very evocative music, and we never see the men in their domestic contexts. We experience the effort, the exhaustion, the pain, and the triumph of the climbers ­ and it is a breathtakingly beautiful film as we watch these small figures crossing glaciers and climbing rock faces in the majestic mountains. Is there `some evil force' in the mountains that's out to get you, Simpson wonders? It is also a film about taking control of your life and subjecting yourself to extreme challenges that involve complex practical and moral choices.

1 The film, Touching The Void, is based on a true story. ____ 2 The climbers experienced serious difficulties on their way up the mountain. ____ 3 Simon Yates cut the rope because he thought that Simpson had died. ____ 4 Simpson had to be rescued from the crevasse. ____ 5 The voices of Simpson and Yates were those of actors. ____ 6 All of the filming took place in Peru. ____ 7 Simpson sometimes had the feeling that the mountains were a kind of enemy that wanted to kill him. ____

11 Read the text and answer the questions.

A dream come true If money was not an issue and you could choose any job you wanted, what would it be? Actor? Model? Or a footballer like David Beckham? A new survey by adult education specialists, Learndirect, asked people across the UK what their dream job would be. The results suggest that not only do people aspire to modest professions such as working for a charity or gardening, but often at the top of their list of dream jobs are the very professions others are leaving in droves ­ such as nursing or teaching. The survey also reveals that there are striking parallels between men and women's dream jobs, and that they have an equally similar list of nightmare occupations. While daydreaming about the perfect vocation is common among people of all ages and professions, very few people fantasize about having glamorous jobs. The Guardian newspaper teamed up with Learndirect to send a few volunteers into their dream job for a day. One of the volunteers, Michael Hutton, used to work in sales, but found this was not making him happy. He felt the high demands and targets made for an unattractive atmosphere to work in. He had always dreamed of running his own pub, so he went to work at a pub in Hertfordshire for a day. `I didn't realize how much behind the scenes work there was. I knew the obvious things like pouring a pint, and I had an idea what it would be like meeting people you didn't know. But there was more to it than I'd imagined,' he says. Changing beer barrels wasn't as easy as he'd anticipated and within minutes he found himself covered in beer. `I was a bit daunted in the first hour or so, but once I settled, in I loved every minute of it. When I got home, I realized I needed a couple of hours to wind down as I was on such an adrenaline rush.' A week later, Michael may be in the position to make his dream job a reality. The pub where he worked is on the market and Michael's father has decided to make an offer.

According to the research ... 1 a many people would like to become a nurse or a teacher. b many people found their jobs too modest. c many young people would like to be an actor or a footballer. 2 a many teachers and nurses have moved into gardening or charity work. b many teachers and nurses are moving out of their professions. c most people never think about their dream job. 3 a men dream about changing jobs more than women. b men and women have similar ideas about the perfect job. c men and women often have nightmares about their jobs. 4 Michael Hutton was unhappy in his job because ... a his office was unattractive. b he could never meet his sales targets. c he found the pressure of having to meet sales targets unpleasant. 5 Michael Hutton ... a was fully aware of what the job of running a pub involved. b had no idea about what the job of running the pub involved. c was surprised about how much work was involved in running a pub. 6 He found the experience of working in the pub ... a enjoyable. b relaxing. c strange.

World's oldest man dies in Japan aged 114 The secret of a long and healthy life could lie in a daily glass of milk. Yukichi Chuganji, who was the world's oldest man when he died, aged 114, at his home on the island of Kyushu in south-west Japan on Sunday 28th October 2003, never touched alcohol, preferring a daily glass of milk, hard toffee, and the occasional apple juice. The former silkworm breeder was born in a farming village on Kyushu on March 23 1889. He later worked in a bank and as a community welfare officer. He married in 1914 and had four sons and a daughter, seven grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren. He was recognized as the world's oldest man by the Guinness Book of Records in January 2002 but the record was challenged by several claims by the Russian authorities. In recent years he rarely ventured from his bed, mainly because of failing eyesight. But he was mentally alert and able to chew toffee with his own full set of teeth. And it was in his bed that he died, just hours after uttering his final words, thanking his daughter Kyoko, aged 72, for a glass of homemade apple juice. The oldest person in the world, 116-year-old Kamato Hongo, lives on the southern tip of Kyushu in Japan. There are an estimated 20,000 Japanese centenarians, and about 80% of these, like Kamato, are women. In a country with the longest life expectancy in the world ­ 85 years for women and 78 for men ­ about one person in five is over 65. The figures are often cited as proof of the life-giving qualities of the traditional low-fat Japanese diet of fish, vegetables, and rice. But they also point to a future population crisis for Japan. By 2025 there will be one person over 65 for every two of working age, making Japan the greyest society on earth. Mr Chuganji's predecessor as the world's oldest man was an Italian, Antonio Todde, who swore that the secret of longevity was a daily glass of red wine. He died aged 112 in Sardinia in January 2002. According to their families, the two men had one thing in common: a stress-free life.

Nearly all children start school at the age of five. There isn't a single chocolate left. I've spent loads of money this month. None of my friends came. Hardly any people walk/anyone walks to work. We don't have much holiday at Christmas. Very few of my friends have children. I've got a few bottles of wine for the party. We argue the whole time. The children have eaten far too much chocolate.

Are you able / will you be able to make the meeting next week? You are required to wear a helmet when you ride a motorbike. I didn't manage to unlock the door. They refused to leave the building. The doctor's bound to tell him to stop smoking. My boss won't let me come to work late tomorrow. We are supposed to telephone the school whenever we're going to be late for class. 8 He's likely to telephone you tonight.
