Аннотация

Модернизация образования, которая проводится в нашей стране, подразумевает,


прежде всего, обновление его содержания. В связи с этим особое внимание уделяется
созданию условий для развития творческого личностного потенциала обучающихся и
расширению возможностей углубленного образования, в том числе языкового. Такие
условия складываются в процессе обучения предмета и овладения знаниями в
определенной области на основе взаимосвязанного использования иностранного языка в
качестве средства образовательной деятельности.
Методическое пособие предназначено для студентов среднего профессионального
образования и обеспечивает содержательную сторону процесса обучения. Учебники
английского языка, по которым реализовывается обучение, представляют лексику для
профессий технической направленности в целом, специфика для конкретной
специальности «Компьютерные сети» отсутствует, что является проблемой для полного и
полноценного обучения. Решением этой проблемы мы считаем создание авторского
методического пособия, которое восполнит этот образовавшийся пробел. Из
вышесказанного следует, что тема разработки актуальна и имеет практическую
ценность для всех участников образовательного процесса.
Работа с методическим пособием предполагает всестороннюю активизацию
лексико-грамматических конструкций, расширение кругозора обучающихся по своей
специальности, обеспечивает личностный рост и мотивирует на дальнейшее изучение
профессии, ведь ни для кого не секрет, что компьютер не сказал своего последнего слова.

Don’t call it a craze. Ok, computer games are quite new. But now they are with us for ever. Kids
are always going to play computer games. I have computer games, a Sega Magadrive. But now I
usually play on my Mum’s computer. It’s a PC – “a personal computer”. The games are more
complicated and interesting. Look at this one – Helicopter Attack. First you plan your attack. The plan

is a very important part of the game. You choose your missiles and lots of other things. You can go
over the desert, the forest or the sea. You have radar. And listen to the sound effects – just like a real
helicopter!”

Martin (Melbourne, Australia):

I really enjoy writing programs. It sounds difficult. But even an eight-year-old can write a
simple program. One of my programs can play chess. It can beat my Mum. She’s an excellent chess-
player. I sometimes write games. “Scramble” is my latest word game – a bit like a crossword puzzle.

Reading
Two “for and against” argumentative essays were mixed by a typist. Divide this text in two parts,
one is “for”, another is “against”:

Advantages and disadvantages of computers.

One of the main advantages is the time that can be saved by using a computer. This especially
beneficial in the workplace where employees can do their work far faster than they could in the past.
Many jobs have been lost due to the fact that computers can do a lot of tasks more efficiently than
humans. This has led to high unemployment in many countries.
Computers can save a lot of storage space. Storing information on computer disks is one of the
most efficient ways of keeping data. One computer disk can hold the same amount of information as
several books.
Stored information can be found at the touch of a button, whereas searching for it manually
takes much longer. We have become too dependent on computers. The time saved by using PC for
repetitive tasks enables us to use our own time more creatively and productively.
Computers can actually cause health problems. Endless hours in front of a screen can cause eye
strain and headaches. Our everyday lies are made easier – from going to the bank to doing the
shopping.
Computers are a useful tool. They have changed our lives for the better and we should make
them work to our advantage. It must be remembered that they are to serve us – not to replace us.

Talking
Topic: Advantages and disadvantages of computers. (Express your own attitude).

11
Writing
1) Write down the expressions “for and against computers” in two columns.
2) Some people consider that computers should be used more and more extensively. Some people
think that computers are harmful and should not be used so much. Write an essay on the topic
using following expressions.
I'd like to tell…
It is devoted to the problem of….
In the first place…
In addition to this…
However…
What is more…
To sum up…
Furthermore…
Therefore…
Nevertheless…
All in all…

Reading
1) Read the text.
The term “computer” is used to describe a device for processing information at high speed by
electronic means. Computer has no intelligence by itself and is referred to as hardware. A computer
system is a combination of five elements:
 Hardware
 Software
 People
 Procedures
 Data /Information
Software is the term used to describe the instructions that tell the hardware how to perform a task.
Without software instructions, the hardware doesn't know what to do. People, however, are the most
important component of the computer system: they create the computer software instructions and
respond to the procedures that those instructions present.
The basic job of the computer is the processing of information. Computers accept information in
the form of instructions called programs and symbols called data to perform mathematical and logical
operations and then give the results (information). The data is raw material while information is
organized, processed, refined and useful for decision making. A computer is used to convert data into
information. A computer is also used to store information in the digital form.

2) Answer the questions.


1. What does the term “computer” describe?
2. Is computer intelligent?
3. What elements does the computer consist of?
4. What is hardware?

14
5. What is software? What is the difference between hardware and software?
6. Why people are the most important component of the computer system?
7. How does a computer convert data into information?

3) Complete the sentences.


1. The basic job of the computer is the ...
2. Information in the form of instruction is called a ...
3. ... is the term used to describe the instructions that tell the hardware how to perform a task.
4. A computer is used to convert data into ...
5. A computer is used to ... in the digital form.

4) Read and say if the sentences are true or false.


1. A computer is made of electronic components so it is referred to as an electronic device.
2. A computer has no intelligence until software is loaded.
1. There are four elements of a computer system.
2. Without software instructions, the hardware doesn't know what to do.
3. Software is the most important component because it is made by people.

5) Describe computer devices.

Grammar
Paraphrase the following sentences. Use the Passive Voice.

1. We use computers to teach courses such as language learning, programming, mathematics.


2. The directory on each disk keeps the names of our files.
3. We can give a unique name for each file.
4. We store each filename in a directory.
5. People pay for their E-mail service.
6. Computers accept information in the form of instructions.

Reading
1) Read the text.
2) Name three basic steps which are involved in the process.
3) Name three main sections of the computer. What are
their functions?

Computers are electronic machines which can accept


data in a certain form, process the data and give the results
of the processing as information.
Three basic steps are involved in the process: First,
data is fed into the computer’s memory. Then, when the
program is run, the computer performs a set of instructions
and processes the data. Finally, we can see the results (the
output) on the screen or in printed form.
A standard computer system consists of three main
sections: the Central Processing Unit, the main memory and
the peripherals.
Central Processing Unit is the “brain” of the computer. Its function is to execute program
instructions and coordinate the activities of all the other units. The main memory holds the instructions
and data which are processed by the CPU. The peripherals are the physical units attached to the
computer. They are input devices (mouse, keyboard), output devices (monitor, printer), storage devices
(floppy or hard discs).

17
Storage devices provide a permanent storage of both data and programs. Disk drives are used to
handle one or more floppy disks. Input devices enable data to go into the computer's memory. The most
common input devices are the mouse and the keyboard. Output devices enable us to extract the finished
product from the system. For example, the computer shows the output on the monitor or prints the
results onto paper by means of a printer.
On the rear panel of the computer there are several ports into which we can plug a wide range of
peripherals - modems, fax machines, optical drives and scanners.
These are the main physical unites of a computer system, generally known as the configuration.

In pairs, choose one of these input devices and describe its functions and features. Try to guess
which device your partner is describing.

The history and the future of computers

Computer information have been a part of everyday life for more than
a generation. It is believed that the principles behind the modern computer
were first conceived by Charles Babbage (1792-1871), a British
mathematician and inventor. Babbage tried to build a machine which could
store information and produce more accurate mathematical calculations and
tables. He could not finish it for lack of the appropriate materials, but his
attempt was a real forerunner of the twentieth century invention.
The first practical machines were built in Great Britain and the USA
during World War II. In the next twenty years, with the invention of the
transistor, a veritable revolution in the computer science had occurred. Since
the 1970's, with the invention of silicon chips, computers have
become a part of, and even a way of life for many people.
In 1969, the first connection between two computers
was established in the USA. That year is considered to be the
birth year of the Internet and the World Wide Web (WWW).
By the year 2000, the whole world has become one large
network. As some people joke, nobody understands what the
Internet is, yet everybody uses it. However, 91% of the Internet
users live in a few developed countries, whereas in some
developing countries, only 1% of the population has Web
access.
As any human invention, computers have brought about
new words - and new problems. To use the computer and the Internet today, one must understand not
only which buttons to press when. There are lots of terms which a layman should master. Press enter,
search engine, virus, bug are only a few examples.
The very end of the twentieth century is marked by Y2K, a mysterious virus which nobody has
witnessed, but which lots of people are apprehensive about. By the way, this abbreviation is well
known in the USA and some other countries, but in the UK, they call it Virus 2000.
Another phenomenon is spam, machine-generated junk mail, which includes chain letters,
advertisements, cheesy magazine pictures etc. Imagine your mail box being suddenly stuffed with more
than 5,000 letters a day!
Before the advent of computers, banks were afraid of robbers. Today, hackers may be a much
greater menace. With a flick of a finger, a few typed digits, any bank may lose millions. Yet, in spite of
all the hazards, mankind uses the computer everyday, and will continue doing so for some time to
come.

Computer Operations

Much of the processing computers can be divided into two general types of operation.
Arithmetic procedures. Early computers performed mostly arithmetic operations, which gave the false
impression that only engineers and scientists could benefit from computers .Of equal importance is the
computer operations are computations with numbers such as addition, subtraction, and other
mathematical ability to compare two values to determine if one is larger than, smaller than, or equal to
the other. This is called a logical operation .The comparison may take place between numbers, letters,
sounds, or even drawings The processing of the computer is based on the computer’s ability to perform
logical and arithmetical operations.
Instructions must be given to the computer to tell it how to process the data it receives and the
format needed for output and storage. The ability to follow the program sets computers apart from most
tools.
However, new tools ranging from typewriters to microwave ovens have embedded computers,
or build-in computers .An embedded computer can accept data to use several options in its program,
but the program itself cannot be changed. This makes these devices flexible and convenient but not the
embedded computers itself.

2) Answer the questions for general understanding:

1. In what two major parts could be computer operations divided?


2. What are arithmetic operations and what are logical operations?
3. What are embedded computers?
4. What modern devices have embedded?
5. What makes computer so different from other tools?

3) Which sentences are true and which are false?

1. Arithmetic operations are operations with numbers-subtraction and division.
2. Early computers gave false impression about their capabilities.
3. Logical operations are computer’s ability to compare two values.
4. The major difference between the computer and tools lies in the flexibility of the program.
5. Microwave oven’s program is flexible and could be changed because of the embedded
computer.

4) Complete the following sentences. Work individually, consult the text.

An operating system tells the computer how to understand what jobs it has to do, how to do
these jobs, and how to tell people the results. It tells the electronics inside the computer, or "hardware",
how to work to get the results it needs. This lets most computers have the same operating system, or list
of orders to tell it how to talk to the user, while each computer can have its own computer programs or
list of jobs to do what its user needs. Having different programs and operating systems makes it easy to
learn how to use computers for new things. When a user needs to use a computer for something
different, the user can learn how to use a new program. DOS is the most commonly used PC operating

26
system. Windows NT (new technology) is an operating system developed by Microsoft. Windows
2003, 2007 are the most popular operating systems.
Information is processed and stored in computers as electrical signals. A computer contains
thousands of electronic circuit connected by switches that can only be one of two possible states: ON or
OFF. To represent these two conditions we use binary notation in which 1 means ON and 0 means
OFF. This is the only way a computer can “understand” anything. Each 1 or 0 is called a bit.
1s and 0s represent characters (letters, numbers and symbols). Eight bits together are called a
byte. Computers can use many bits together to represent instructions and the data that these instructions
use. A list of these instructions is called a program and stored on the computer's hard disk.
The computers use a standard system. This is ASCII (pronounced “ask-key”). There are 256
different ways of combining 0 and 1 bits in a byte. So they can give us 256 different signals.
We also use units such as kilobytes, megabytes and gigabytes. One kilobyte (KB) is 1,024
bytes. One megabyte (MB) is 1,024 kilobytes, and one gigabyte (GB) is 1,024 MB. We use these units
(KB, MB, GB) to describe the RAM (random access memory – память с произвольным доступом)
memory. Computers use memory called "RAM" as a space to carry out the instructions and store data
while it is doing these instructions.
When the computer wants to store the results of the instructions for later, it uses the hard disk.
Computers store data and the instructions telling them what to do with the data as numbers, because
computers can do things with numbers very quickly.

INTRODUCTION ТО THE WWW AND THE INTERNET

Millions of people around the world use the Internet to search for and retrieve information on all
sorts of topics in a wide variety of areas including the arts, business, government, humanities, news,
politics and recreation. People communicate through electronic mail (e-mail), discussion groups, chat
channels and other means of informational exchange. They share information and make commercial
and business transactions. All this activity is possible because tens of thousands of networks are
connected to the Internet and exchange information in the same basic ways.
The World Wide Web (WWW) is a part of the Internet. But it's not a collection of networks.
Rather, it is information that is connected or linked together like a web. You access this information
through one interface or tool called a Web browser. The number of resources and services that are part
of the World Wide Web is growing extremely fast. In 1996 there were more than 20 million users of
the WWW. People connected to the Internet and World Wide Web through the local providers have
access to a variety of information. Each browser provides a graphical interface. You move from place
to place, from site to site on the Web by using a mouse to click on a portion of text, icon or region of a
map. These items are called hyperlinks or links. Each link you select represents a document, an image,
a video clip or an audio file somewhere on the Internet. The user doesn't need to know where it is, the
browser follows the link.
All sorts of things are available on the WWW. One can use the Internet for recreational
purposes. Many TV and radio stations broadcast live on the WWW. You can even visit museums,
gardens, cities throughout the world, learn foreign languages and meet new friends. And, of course, you
can play computer games through WWW, competing with partners from other countries and continents.

IV. Many people think computers are too expensive and just a waste of money. Do you know why they
are so expensive? Read the passage and find the answer to this question.

Mike Aghopian (California, USA):

I work for ICM, a computer company in California.


As you probably know, the chip is the brain of the computer, the most important part. Why does
it have to be small? Well, there are two reasons. Number one is convenience: we want nice, small,
portable machines. Number two is speed: in a small circuit the electronic signals arrive faster, simply
because they travel a shorter distance.
Today's chips are very small indeed. But we design the electronic circuit on big pieces of paper.
Then we make a big photographic negative – as big as a table. Finally we print this picture on a piece
of silicon 250 times smaller than the negative. That's the secret of making chips!
We cut the pieces of silicon under a microscope. Then we test the chips. Only
30% work correctly, so we throw away about 70%. That's why they are
expensive.
A modern chip can store more than 8 million characters – that's 4,000 pages
of a book!
 

Read the text again and draw a flow-chat to show how chips are made. Use these phrases:
a. sell the good one
b. cut the silicon
c. test the chips
d. design on paper
e. photographic negative
f. throw away the bad ones
g. print on silicon

The History of the Internet.


Presenter: Welcome to ‘’Future Now’. Today we are going to discuss the Internet with Dr .Jennifer
May from Manchester University. Dr .May, how did the Internet begin?
Dr. May: Well, it’s strange but the Internet was started by the military. In the 1960s the Pentagon were
worried about communications after a nuclear war. And in 1969 they thought of linking computers into
a network so that if one part of the network was destroyed, other parts could continue working.
Presenter: And then scientists started to use the network, right?
Dr .May: Yes, people in universities all over the world began to use the network to share ideas .They
used it for work and for fun. In the 1980s, people started calling it the Internet.
Presenter: Then it was in the mid-1990s that the Internet really began to grow fast.
Dr .May: Yes, now the Internet is important for entertainment, e-mail, playing games and getting
information.

One of the most important jobs that computers do for people is helping with communication.
Communication is how people share information. Computers have helped people move forward in
science, medicine, business, and learning, because they let experts from anywhere in the world work
with each other and share information. They also let other people communicate with each other, do
their jobs almost anywhere, learn about almost anything, or share their opinions with each other. The
Internet is the thing that lets people communicate between their computers.
Blogs are used by many people to say what they want on the Internet. Some people spend most of
their time reading and writing blogs. Many people from all over the world use them. Some people use
them to write about things that happen to them. Experts can use them to help people learn more. Some
blogs are used by companies to sell things.
