study the wreckage of the Titanic up close and

Woman: Wow, that sounds exciting! You should go for it
then.

Theres only one problem...

I used the finger scanner at the supermarket the

Woman: I read about those. Theyve been around for a

scanning your fingerprint. Its like someone is

Man:
But its so convenient! It knows who you are, and
takes the money right from your bank account.
You dont need to carry money or anything with
you ever again!
Woman: But isnt it dangerous?
Man:
Of course not. Its easier for someone to steal
your credit card than your fingerprint.

LISTENING TRANSCRIPT
Brad: Hey, Kelly, did you see the new episode of Heroes last night?
Kelly: Nah, I stopped watching that show in the second season. I didnt like it anymore.
Brad: How is that possible? That show is amazing!
Kelly: Its so unrealistic. All those normal people with abilities? Its like a comic book or something.
Brad: Thats kind of the whole point, Kelly. Besides, dont you think it would be cool to have an ability?
Kelly: I guess it depends on what I could do. I wouldnt want super hearing or the ability to read other peoples minds.
Sometimes Id really prefer NOT knowing what people are thinking about me.
Brad: Yeah, thats definitely true. But wouldnt it be cool to have The Cheerleaders power? The ability to recover
quickly and easily when youve been injured?
Kelly: Well, I suppose that might come in handy. Im quite careless sometimes, and Im always getting cuts and
bruises.
Brad: I know you are. You always have some sort of plaster on!
Kelly: I know, I know. Still though, it wouldnt be right. Its not natural. And, if abilities of that sort did actually exist,
Im sure someone would try to take advantage of it. Just like on the show.
Brad: You have a good point, but what if the government could protect against that sort of thing? Just imagine it... a
world full of superheroes! I think it would make for a much safer place to live.
Kelly: Maybe for a while. I still think people would eventually use their powers for evil. If you could walk through
walls, whats stopping you from walking right into a bank and taking the money?
Brad: Hmm... I didnt think of that. Well, its not like there are people with abilities out there anyway.
Kelly: Yeah, so for now, why dont you just stick to watching the show?

LISTENING TRANSCRIPT

Interviewer: Good evening and welcome to this edition


of Thats Strange. Today on the programme
I have Dr Ian Roberts talking about a
phenomenon known as crop circles.
Welcome, Dr Roberts.
Dr Roberts: Thank you.
Interviewer: So Ian, for those of us who dont know, tell
us, what is a crop circle?
Dr Roberts: A crop circle is a large pattern formed by
flattening crops such as wheat or barley.
Interviewer: And what is so special about crop circles?
Dr Roberts: Theres a lot of controversy surrounding
crop circles. Many of your listeners might
have seen the film Signs with Mel Gibson in
which intelligent aliens are responsible for
elaborate crop circles that suddenly appear
all over the world. Some people believe
that this idea is not that far from the truth
because many crop circles are enormous
complex geometric formations that are
created overnight and its difficult to believe
that humans could create them.
Interviewer: Is there any proof that they are created by,
lets say, mysterious forces?
Dr Roberts: Well, there has been some video footage
showing small bright balls of light in and
around the crop circles. Some of these
bright lights have been filmed during the
day. As to whether there is a connection
between these lights and crop circle creation
we still dont know. Scientists have analysed
the wheat from crop circles to find out if it
has any unusual features. They discovered
that the plants had been heated rapidly to

very high temperatures. This indicated that


large bursts of energy were used to create
the crop circles.
And do you think it is possible that humans
are creating them?
Yes, of course it is possible. An experiment
has been done with a team of artists who
were able to create some very complex
circles by using wooden planks to flatten
the crops. However, the more complex
patterns would require a great amount of
planning and skill. There is a group of crop
circle artists but they usually dont take
responsibility for specific circles. This helps
to add to the air of mystery surrounding
the circles. Although I think it is most
likely that humans do create them, one can
never be absolutely certain. There is not
enough research into crop circles to really
understand how they are formed.
I see... and where are these circles usually
found?
Mainly in Southern England. However,
there have been crop circles found all over
the world. On my website, you can see some
recent photographs which I took of crop
circles in America and there is a particularly
beautiful one in Switzerland.
Ill give out those details for you at the end
of the show... ....Can you tell us how long
these crop circles have been around?
Well, some of the earliest reports were in
17th century England but the phenomenon
didnt really attract the publics attention till
the 1980s...(fade out)

months later we wake up one morning and
realise we havent been to the gym for...well
2 months!
Joanna:
(laughs)... yes, well that is a very common
story.
Interviewer: But there is another option available that
might just make us all want to go back to
exercise and its free.
Joanna:
Thats correct. You can join a green gym for
free.
Interviewer: For those of us that dont know, can you
explain what a green gym is?
Joanna:
Its more of a concept. Green gyms are a way
for people to go out into the countryside,
do some physical work helping the
environment and at the same time improve
their health.
Interviewer: So it combines keeping fit with protecting
the environment?
Joanna:
Yes.
Interviewer: That sounds ideal. How does a session at a
green gym work?
Joanna:
Well, when you get to the site the instructor
takes you through some warm up exercises.
This is to help reduce the risk of injuries.

Then you will be shown how to use the

task. Types of tasks include tree replanting,
repairing footpaths and growing vegetables.
There is a large range of projects available.
Interviewer: Can children take part?
Joanna:
Of course! We have lots of parents who
bring their children along and its turned
out to be a great way for families to spend
time together.
Interviewer: That sounds great. The trouble is trying
to get the kids to come out. I have two
teenagers and they spend most of their time
in their rooms playing computer games.
I cant see my two agreeing to swap their
playstations for work tools.
Joanna:
Youd be surprised; we have lots of teenagers
here. At first they may not be willing to take
part, but after a couple of sessions they start
really enjoying it and making friends.
Interviewer: Why do you think these green gyms are
becoming so popular?
Joanna:
Many people find going to the gym boring
because youre doing the same exercises
over and over. Green gyms offer you the
chance to do something different every
time. You are out in the fresh air and, most
importantly, you are doing something
positive for the environment.
Interviewer: And what about the health benefits?
Joanna:
There are so many; participants in green
gyms have reported improved mental and
physical health. Working out in nature
is thought to help relieve stress and fight
depression.
Interviewer: If youre just joining us, Im talking to
Joanna Smith about Green Gyms....

LISTENING TRANSCRIPT
John: So, tell me about this organisation youve set up,
Jackie. It sounds very exciting.
Jackie: Well, its all about providing young people with
volunteer opportunities.
John: Really? That is such a good idea, although I
wouldnt have thought youd get many teenagers
interested in that kind of thing. Most young people
I know are only interested in playing computer
games, watching TV, hanging out with their
friends and listening to music.
Jackie: I know what you mean but Ive found its quite the
opposite with many teenagers. I did some surveys,
for example, I looked at what global issues concern
young people the most and found that they are
very worried about poverty, war and climate
change. These are serious world issues and they
were the top things on teenagers minds. I also
found that many teenagers would like to take part
in volunteer work but they just dont know how
to start. This showed me that more work needs
to be done to raise young peoples awareness of
the volunteering opportunities available to them.
Thats why I set up this organisation.
John: So what does your organisation do?
Jackie: Well we provide guidance and information on
volunteer work. We have advisers who are available
9-5pm Monday-Friday to answer any queries. On
our website you can type in your postcode click
on search and all volunteering opportunities in
your area will be listed including their contact
details. We basically gather all the information
and provide it to young people in a way that wont
overwhelm them.
John: So how do you make sure that the volunteer
opportunities match the interests of teenagers?

Jackie: We did a study on the interests of young people.


Young men tend to be very passionate about sport
and also hanging out with their friends. Young
women are more passionate about friends, music
and family. We try to find volunteer organisations
that match these interests. For example, the charity
Oxfam uses volunteers to organise thousands of
music events. The charity provides training, tools
and technical equipment to the volunteers.
John: And what other kinds of things can young people
do?
Jackie: The list is endless; there is something for everyone,
art and culture, sports, supervising children,
learning new skills such as first aid. There are also
many community projects. The important thing
Ive learnt from our research is that we have to
make voluntary work more appealing and cool to
teenagers so they will want to take part.
John: I agree.
Jackie: Also, a recent programme we have developed
that has been very successful involves giving
young people money to spend on improving their
community. This gives them the responsibility of
managing a project on their own. Of course, we
give them the relevant training and resources.
John: And how do you think young people can benefit
from volunteer work?
Jackie: They gain valuable skills and experience which
increases their self confidence and prepares
them for the future. From talking to some of our
volunteers, I think its the feeling that they are
giving something back to the community that
really gives them a sense of achievement.
John: Well, I think what you are doing is great!

Male: It was beautiful! It had lovely beaches and Corfu
Town is full of elegant old buildings.I particularly
enjoyed going round the many museums, and

go there everyday!

myself.
Fiona: Of course Ill come. What sort of dress are you
thinking of?
Sarah: Well, Id like something blue. I love the colour blue.
Fiona: You are always wearing blue. Why dont you try a
different colour for a change? Like red, or purple.
Those are nice colours, too and they suit you.
Sarah: I suppose.

have.
Sarah: Great. Im looking forward to it.
