Welcome to Adult Track INTERMEDIATE 1! Este curso foi desenhado especialmente para você, que precisa
Welcome to Adult Track INTERMEDIATE 1!
Este curso foi desenhado especialmente para você, que precisa estar
preparado para se comunicar em inglês hoje, na sua vida profissional e
pessoal. Sabemos o quanto o seu tempo é precioso e, por isso, você irá
usar inglês desde o primeiro dia de aula, sempre em contextos e situações
que se assemelham muito àquelas que aparecem no seu dia a dia. Sendo
assim, você aprenderá o inglês da vida real, que você poderá usar para
realizar tarefas desde as mais simples como receber um visitante
estrangeiro até participar de uma reunião de negócios.
O Adult Track é um curso inovador justamente por isso: você participará
ativamente das aulas, trazendo as expressões e estruturas que você precisa
e não apenas aquelas apresentadas pelo livro. Para garantir esse nível de
personalização e a atualização permanente dos assuntos tratados no curso,
além da sua contribuição, o Adult Track utiliza vários recursos
complementares como filmes, documentários, artigos, sites e os materiais
multimídia exclusivos da Cultura Inglesa, como atividades no quadro
interativo, o e-Campus e o Culture World. O livro é apenas mais um desses
recursos. Para acompanhar o curso com mais autonomia e tirar melhor
proveito das aulas, preparamos este guia que apresenta a estrutura do
curso aula a aula e reúne indicações de atividades, dicas de estudo e
materiais de referência exclusivos. Esse guia irá:
1.
orientar seu estudo;
2.
sugerir recursos extras de consolidação do que foi visto nas aulas;
3.
servir de apoio e referência caso você precise faltar às aulas;
4.
lhe ajudar no desenvolvimento das redações;
5.
lhe ajudar a estudar fornecendo as respostas do Workbook.

APRESENTAÇÃO DAS SESSÕES DO GUIA Número da aula: O seu estágio é composto por 32 aulas, incluindo avaliações e momentos formais de feedback durante o curso. Communication Objective: Aqui você encontra o foco do que será estudado em cada aula. Cada uma das aulas gira em torno de uma situação específica relacionada à vida real. O livro é apenas um dos muitos recursos usados para que esse objetivo comunicativo seja atingido, porque o conteúdo de cada aula é exclusivo da Cultura Inglesa. Consolidation: Aqui estão sugestões de atividades essenciais para a consolidação do que foi visto em sala de aula. Esses exercícios e tarefas retomam a língua que foi apresentada e praticada em sala através de contextos variados. Quanto mais tempo você conseguir se dedicar ao estudo do inglês fora das aulas, melhor e mais rápido será o seu desenvolvimento.

If you like memorable life experiences with a touch of real history, you have to read Bring Up the
Bodies by Hilary Mantel, winner of 2012 Man Book Prize. This is a fictional account of Anne Boleyn
through Cromwell’s eyes and a great opportunity to learn a bit more about real people who made
history.
It's all about power and survival in England and it's set in the heart of Tudor history back in the
1500’s.The main characters are Anne Boleyn and Oliver Cromwell and it tells the story of how King
Henry VIII became disenchanted with her because she failed to give him a son and an heir. Hilary
Mantel's Bring Up the Bodies follows the dramatic trial of the queen up to her death. The characters
are extremely strong and the book's ending will be no cliffhanger for anyone even remotely familiar
with Henry VIII’s trail of violence for power.
This book is not only a best seller but also a well-researched historical novel. Its theme is very
appealing to anyone who likes to read about events that changed and influenced our lives. I
personally liked and strongly recommend it. You will absolutely love it.
and strongly recommend it. You will absolutely love it.  STUDENT ’S GUIDE  AT INTERMEDIATE

Recent statistics show that South Korea has the world’s highest level of internet penetration. More than 80% of the population have access to the internet. And South Korea also has the fastest internet speed in the world. Almost all internet users have access to the internet at home. Just under half have access to the internet at work and more than a fifth of the internet users can access the internet anywhere via their mobile phones and devices. The use of mobile phones is growing, and around 20% of mobile users have smartphones. It is expected that this figure will rise dramatically over the next few years. South Koreans spend an average of 11 hours a week online. Most people use the internet for news and information, with games and entertainment coming a close second.

Itamambuca Eco Resort in Ubatuba is a great place to go and relax. It’s peaceful, full of
green areas and you can find by far the most idyllic beach. It’s the perfect place to forget
about all the stress and chaos from the big city.
In this resort you can walk get in contact with nature. There is a portion of the Mata
Atlântica right there where you can go for recreational walks with trained guides. This
resort offers much more than just the beach, people can also go kayaking, surfing, fishing
or diving.
What I love in Itamambuca is the peaceful atmosphere and the time you can spend with
your family and friends. If you need to get connected to the world, they also offer free

Lesson 29 CW 4 - Post your views on a social network website

Task: You took part in an international conference on fair trade and shopping trends. You felt motivated to share your views on the topic. Post your views on the knock-on effects of shopping in big supermarket chains and in small local shops.

Full name: Roberto do Nascimento

ATIN 1 Tuesday & Thursday 20h20

CW4 - Writing your views in a blog post: Buy Global or Local?

Paragraph 1 Introduce the topic of shopping;.

Paragraph 2 Give your opinion about big supermarkets;

Paragraph 3 Give your opinion about small local shops;

Paragraph 4 Give your final opinion (state your preference and why).

Word limit: 120 -150 words

TEXT MODEL

Consider your food shopping. Did you buy it all from a big supermarket? Or did you visit your local shops?

On the one hand, it’s quicker and easier to buy all the groceries in a big supermarket. They are usually cheaper as well.

On the other hand, your local butcher, baker and grocer can give you high-quality food, and offer lots of expert advice.

Although shopping in specialist local shops seem like a nice idea, in reality most of us prefer to shop in a bigger store. They’re more convenient and price makes a difference, especially when you have a big family to feed like me.

1 Ah yes, this is a Kabuki dancer, isn’t it? And umm, each dance tells a story, with the costume and the make up and the movements all er, all communicating something different the only problem is… you have to know the language of Kabuki dance to understand what he’s saying!

2 She’s obviously angry about something and umm… she’s decided to protest about it, she’s using a placard to communicate her message and the strength of the crowd as well that umm, that makes the message much louder and err, and more powerful.

3 This gesture speaks a thousand words, doesn’t it? So gentle, so tender… it’s communicating love and protection – it’s amazing how a hand gesture can say so much!

4 I love this photo, the way the two people are looking at each other, the way they, umm, the way they seem to be so deep in conversation…They’re not just talking with words, the expressions on their faces, the, uhh, gestures they’re making with their hands, it’s all part of the conversation.

5 Mmm… There are two things going on in this photo – I mean first of all there’s the keyboard, and that’s so much part of modern communication, isn’t it? You know, people staying in

touch by email, or on social networks, or umm, instant messaging services – but it’s also the hands. Look, the err, the henna on her hands, that tells a story, too. It communicates a lot about the person who’s typing, don’t you think?

6 OK, this one is obviously showing sign language. I wonder where they are. I wonder if they’re both deaf, or perhaps they’re communicating with someone else.

2 You never normally see a photo like this, I mean, you just hear people, you know, reading out a script, but you never see them.

3 This would be many people’s favourite place to read

[2.2] page 16, Exercise 2 ‘Beloved’ by Toni Morrison. This looks like a romantic novel, I mean the title suggests that, but actually it’s about the slave trade in the United States. It follows the life of a mother and daughter as they try to rebuild their lives after escaping from slavery. It’s set in the United States at the end of the 19 th century. So… I think historical novel is the best description for it.

‘Norwegian Wood’ by Haruki Marukami’. This is like a love story and a drama and a humorous novel all in one. The narrator looks back on his life in the 1960s as a student in Tokyo, so it’s very nostalgic. It talks about the love affairs he had when he was younger. It’s funny at times but it has its tragic side as well. But if I had to choose, I think love story is the best description.

THE BIG PICTURE INTERMEDIATE - TRANSCRIPTS

‘The Road’ by Cormac McCarthy. This is a story about the end of the world. We follow the story of a father and son as they walk across America, which has been virtually destroyed, and there are few people who have survived. Some people might think this is like science fiction or fantasy but I think it’s very real which makes it so frightening. It’s hard to classify but I suppose it’s an action/adventure story but a very tragic one.

‘The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency’ by Alexander McCall Smith. This story is set in Botswana, Africa. As the name suggests, it’s a detective novel but with a difference. It tells the story of Precious Ramotswe and her decision to become the first female private detective in Botswana. The crimes are ordinary crimes and the problems are the everyday problems of the people of Botswana. There are touches of comedy, but also of tragedy, and above all there’s the taste of Africa, in all its colours, sights and sounds.

[2.3] page 18, Exercise 2 P = Presenter, T = Tanya

P:

Well, we have Tanya Kowitz here with us now

Hi Tanya, you’ve come into the studio today to tell us all about manga. I keep it seeing it everywhere but I must confess I don’t know

T:

too much about it. Can you enlighten us there? Well, I had figured that might be the case so let me give you a brief introduction. The incredible thing about it is that in Japan (where manga comes from) it represents close to 25% of what people read, at least in print. In the US, it’s still fiction that sells but in many parts of Tokyo where I used to live, you can't walk more than two or three blocks without

encountering these comics.

P:

And these are young people I presume?

T:

Oh, no, it isn’t just for young people, everybody reads manga – business people and housewives alike, you can see them on the metro or even walking down the street, their heads

P:

buried in the latest series they are reading. Hiroshima even has a public library devoted to manga. But it’s not just about books. You can even get manga novels sent in installments to your cell phone. I was going to ask you about that. So, manga’s available in every shape and size

T: Absolutely, and there’s a reason for that

you know

nearly all of Japan’s cultural production comes from manga. Most animé (animated) movies, you know … cartoons, and

television series, as well as many videogames and collectible figures, began life as manga comics.

And what about outside Japan? Has it evolved in the same way, this manga industry ?

P:

T: Yes, for sure. Manga hadn’t reached a global market before, but now I’d say it could be the country’s most influential export. I mean, one of the most popular, Naruto, is now

translated into many languages, in adaptations

So it’s a global product but it gets localized for particular markets?

you know, designed to suit different cultures.

P:

T: That’s right

A UK firm has recently published manga versions of Shakespeare’s most famous works including Hamlet. Well, I say Hamlet

the character of Hamlet is the man we

know and love, but the plot is very different and so’s the setting – in this manga version Hamlet lives in the year 2107 on an Earth destroyed by global warming.

P:

Wow, that’s some change

What other stuff is out there?

T:

Erm, let me think about that one, erm

well, you know The World Bank and publisher Viz Media teamed up to produce a thing called 1 World Manga. It’s a series of graphic novels in

manga format with themes which address stuff like HIV/AIDS, poverty, and corruption. Great way to make young people aware of these things. They get donated to libraries, so more

people can read them

it’s a great idea.

P:

So, would you say that manga’s become a central part of popular culture in many parts of the world?

T: Yeah, absolutely. You can even buy a bible with manga style illustrations. Can you believe that? And manga is even used by advertisers as a marketing device. You can see huge manga faces on billboards or simply to decorate the facades of buildings. So, what started off as comic book, something you put in your pocket, just became one of the biggest icons

the world has ever seen and this is helping manga become truly international, it’s not just Japanese anymore.

2 I like Lisa Simpson, she’s my favourite character in the programme.

3 The book was great, but I had trouble understanding the plot. It was really complicated.

4 Tintin was the first comic book that I read as a kid.

5 I mostly read fiction, though not bestsellers, I’m not so interested in them.

[2.6] page 20, Exercise 1b The first image is from a Hollywood movie from the 90s starring Sylvester Stallone and it’s actually called Cliffhanger – it’s set in the Rocky Mountains. It is basically a series of cliffhangers – literally each one more impossible than the last building up to the climax where good finally triumphs over evil! The suspense keeps the audience glued to their seats, and later, when the movie appeared on TV, it meant they stayed there through the commercial breaks and didn’t switch over to another channel.

The second image is taken from a classic serial movie from the 1930s. Serial movies told short stories about heroes who were forever getting into trouble. They lasted about 20 minutes to half an hour and always had to end with a cliffhanger in order to encourage the audience to come back again the next week to see what would happen to their hero. Slowly the serial movies disappeared and they were replaced by TV series instead.

The third photo is from an American TV series, CSI Crime Scene Investigators. This is actually the closing image of the last episode of the eleventh series the intention is to keep the viewers hanging on not just for the next episode, but for the next series! And now that a lot of TV series are actually watched on DVD, I suppose the point is to encourage you to buy the next series!

Did you use to watch a lot of TV when you were a kid?

No, we didn’t use to have a TV, but we used to go to the cinema a lot.

[2.8] page 22, Exercise 2a I = Interviewer, L = Louise

I: Evening, listeners! Today journalist Louise Fryer talks about the image of two men reading on the Grand Concourse of Union Station and sees a metaphor for how badly we read these days. L: I think this image is really revealing. You see more people now like the man on the left gazing into a screen or a smartphone, don’t you? How many people still read a paper like the man on the right? Does that mean the printed word will disappear? Perhaps, but I’m not sure that’s the problem, the main problem I think is that we don’t read well anymore. Before, we used to read in depth, long texts which we had to interpret. Now, we just scroll down text on the screen, we don’t take it in, we don’t absorb the information and when we get bored we just open another window or click on another icon. Not only that, we don’t read enough. What we tend to do is read the same information again and again. We click on the same websites to check the same information to see if there has been an update. You know, is the weather forecast different to what it was an hour ago, has the price of that flight changed? Has anybody responded to my blog in the last half hour? Because we can read like this, checking and checking again, we have become anxious readers, we don’t know how to read for relaxation anymore. Take away the technology for a week and see what happens, see what you will discover about the world.

I:

Interesting ideas there

well, here’s how some of you responded to Louise’s words:

[2.9] page 22, Exercise 3a

1 Joe

You know, I don’t agree at all. The people that Louise talks about are just bored, they have too much time to waste, to read all that information again and again.

2 Elana

I prefer books, the printed word, so I really see Louise’s point, but I don’t think it’s a problem of technology. You can read very well on screen, it’s just easier to lose your concentration and browse somewhere else.

3 Svetlana

I agree to some extent, I think what she said makes a lot of sense. We have to spend a day or two without technology to realise that. We read the same information again and again and

it’s so trivial.

4 Mark

You know, I don’t see it that way, we read differently but we don’t read any worse than we did when we only had paper. Reading is more dynamic and enjoyable online.

5

Flavio

I

couldn’t agree more, I hate reading online. But I think it’s a personal thing. A whole new generation only read online, it seems, are they any worse for this? There’s no proof of this.

Adam

I’m afraid she’s wrong about that. This is the typical argument of someone who cannot come to terms with new technology and blames it for everything.

[2.11] page 23, Exercise 4b I took this photo in Patagonia in Argentina. The two narrow peaks that you can see are called Fitzroy and Cerro Torre. We had spent a few weeks trekking around that area and this was the end of the last day of our trip. We were driving back on that desolate highway, and the light was dying when I caught a glimpse of the mountain range in the rear view mirror and thought, I just need to take one last photo of that horizon. It turned out to be the best photo I had taken on that whole trip.

[3.5] page 28, Exercise 1a This is a photo of Trafalgar Square in central London. It’s one of London’s best known squares, attracting millions of visitors every year, and has often been at the centre of public demonstrations. In each corner of the square you’ll see a plinth – an enormous stone platform three of these plinths hold a permanent statue, but the fourth plinth the one you can see in the image stood empty for over 150 years. It was originally designed to hold a statue of a horse but because of lack of money the statue was never built. In 1998 the local authorities started to experiment with different statues. These experiments were very popular and attracted even more visitors to the square, and there was a lot of discussion about what exactly should stand on the plinth. In 2010 the mayor of London announced a competition that would take place every two years where the public would decide. In the first

E:

Me? I vote for the brass boy on his toy horse. It’s a very personal image, everyone can relate to that, it’s much more elegant than the bird, anyway!

You’re right, but I think a sense of humour is important. Anyway, that cake has a history you know, it’s a bit more interesting than you think. It’s called Battenberg and it was very

Sometimes I watch the people at the next table and tune in to their conversations. Is that bad? I know I shouldn’t really listen in on other people’s conversations, and if they’re too personal, then I turn away, but on the whole they’re simply passing the time of day, or talking about work. It’s surprising how many people come here to have business meetings over a cup of coffee!

[3.8] page 32, Exercise 2a I don’t understand what the problem with this building is… the crazy design, that’s the idea. What I like is that it matches what’s inside – so much modern music is crazy… and that fits with the building somehow. The most important thing is that people are talking about it, that doesn’t happen with most buildings which we don’t even notice.

Maybe Frank has a point there, but what I hate about it is the position, there was a beautiful park there before and now we have to look at this… thing…, argh…I mean it’s absolutely grotesque.

Jane’s right, the building’s embarrassing. I’m embarrassed to look at it, I mean. The problem is that the architect is famous and nobody wants to criticize him. That’s the problem. Yeah, OK we all know it’s a work of art but it’s a bad one… I don’t want to have to see that every day of the week, that’s why works of art should be inside museums. Buildings should be functional…

I don’t agree with Adrian. I mean, why put a museum about creativity in a grey square box? That’s the best thing about it – it’s controversial, it provokes debate, you can’t be indifferent to it, can you? I mean you either love it or hate it. And technologically, it’s awesome – the building is a sculpture, the architect intended it to be like that, a work of art in its own right, you know? Our city should celebrate that, not criticize it.
