Interviewer Thank you for coming into the studio this morning. Could you start by
telling the listeners what youre doing this week?
Astronaut: Well, this is a very special week for me. Tomorrow afternoon, Im
traveling with two other astronauts to a secret location. The launch is
at 7.50 the next evening.
Interviewer How exciting! Will this be the first time youve been in space?
Astronaut: Yes, it will. Im really looking forward to it.
Interviewer What is your mission, exactly?
Astronaut: We have to repair equipment on the International Space Station.
Interviewer Whats the problem?
Astronaut: There are two or three things we need to look at, but the main problem
is the temperature control system. We think there may be a leak of
some kind.
Interviewer Is that a difficult job?
Astronaut: No, not particularly, but well almost certainly need to spend some time
working outside.
Interviewer Do you mean a spacewalk?
Astronaut: Yes, maybe, but we wont know for sure until were there and can
examine the equipment properly.
Interviewer Isnt that really dangerous?
Astronaut: Not really weve had a lot of training and of course were going to be
very careful.

Space holidays:
July 2009 was the 40th anniversary of man first walking on the Moon. Ever since
that day, we have been promised that holidays in space are not far away. Now a
representative for the World Tourism Organization predicts that, in the next ten
years, people will be queuing to book their holidays in space. They will fly by rocket
to a space station which will be orbiting the Earth at a height of 320 kilometers - that
is about the same as the distance from Cairo to EI-Minya. The space station itself will
be like a giant spinning wheel with spokes like a bike wheel. There will be two kinds of
spokes: those with ordinary gravity and those with zero gravity for weightless sports.
Some people who are interested in space holidays are worried that, as space tourists,
they will suffer from the same horrible side effects as astronauts have suffered from,
but experts say that there are now treatments for most side effects.
Just think about such a holiday in space. Everyone who has traveled in space has
described the magic feeling of looking down on the Earth as it spins below you. It will
be impossible to go shopping or go for a walk, but think of the fun you can have with
weightless football or weightless gymnastics.
For most people, the main disadvantage at the moment is the cost of space holidays.
Currently, the cost of a holiday is very high; but, like everything else, the more
people want to do something, the cheaper it will become. So, if you are
interested, start saving now.
Choose the right answer:
1- In 10 to 15 years people will be (queuing- rowing- lining- sitting) up to
take their holidays in space.
2- Experts say that there are now treatments (to -for -in -from) most side effects.
3- When you are (countless-weightless-harmless-endless) in space, it must
be very difficult to stand still.
4- Gymnastics and football are two sports that people can (do- make- act-
create) in space.
5- I don't think you understand the (serious- dangerous- gravity- seriously)
of the situation.
6- The more people want to do something, the (cheap- cheaper- cheapest-
expensive) it will become.
7- You'll have to queue (over- on- up- out) and wait your turn like everybody else.
Find the mistake and correct it:
1-In the next ten years, people will be rowing to book their holidays in space.
2- Space tourists can make weightless sports in space.

the Earth.
4-It is wonderful to see the Earth spinning under you.

Reading: The history of books

In Ancient Egypt, a type of tall grass called papyrus, which grew in the Nile valley,
was used for writing and drawing on. Before it could be used, the leaves of the
grass were soaked in water; pressed together and then dried in the sun. The first
real paper was made by the Chinese two thousand years ago. In the eighth
century, Arab travellers who traded with China learned how to make it, too. At
first, paper was very expensive because it was made from cotton, but later it was
produced from wood and so became much cheaper.
To make paper from wood, logs are broken into small pieces which are then
mixed with chemicals and bleached. Water is removed from the mixture, which
then passes through hot rollers to produce continuous pieces of dry paper.
Every year, millions of trees are cut down to make new paper Fortunately, the
type of tree that gives us the best wood for making paper grows very quickly, but
old paper can also be recycled. Most of todays newspapers and magazines are
made from recycled paper.

The Glory Series 3rd Secondary
For hundreds of years, an enormous quantity of paper has been used to produce
books. Especially very large books like encyclopaedias. Now encyclopaedias and
other books can be put on to CD-ROMs: special computer disks which can hold
huge amounts of information. Sound and pictures can also be put on CD-ROMs.
Many people think that soon everybody will have a computer and we will get
all our information from the internet or from CD-ROMs. They believe that public
libraries will no longer-be needed and that printing will become part of history.

Hope: The Prisoner of Zenda:

Presenter: In todays Book Program, were going to hear about the life and work the
writer Anthony Hope. In the studio we have Professor David Lyons from the University
of South London. Professor Lyons, Anthony Hope is well known for his adventure
novels, but what sort of a man was he? Was he like his heroes?
Professor Lyons: Not in the least. Anthony Hope was a well-educated English
lawyer who started writing in his free time.
Presenter: Could you tell us something about his early life?
Professor Lyons: Yes, of course. Anthony Hope was born near London in 1863. After
finishing school, he went to Oxford University, where he studied classics. He was
interested in politics and was a good speaker in university debates. After Oxford,
he trained as a lawyer and started working in London in 1887.
Presenter: So how did he start writing?
Professor Lyons: Well, as in those days have plenty of free time - so Hope wrote short
stories for magazines. He wrote his first novel, a Man of Mark, in 1890, but had to pay
for the publication himself.
Presenter: How about his most famous book, The Prisoner of Zenda? Did he pay for
Professor Lyons: No. By then, he was already a successful novelist. The amazing
thing about this book was how quickly he wrote it. He first had the idea in late 1893
and the book was published in April 1894. It was immediately successful.
Presenter: What was so special about The Prisoner of Zenda?
Professor Lyons: Well, its a very exciting adventure story which takes place in a
fictional European country. I think it was so popular because its not about
everyday lives- people like escapism.
Presenter: Did Hope marry?
Professor Lyons: Yes, he did. In 1903, he went on a speaking tour to other
countries and met Betty Somerville. The couple were married later that year, then
came back to England, where they had two sons and a daughter.
Presenter: And did he continue writing?
Professor Lyons: yes, in all he wrote thirty-two works of fiction, but The Prisoner of
Zenda was always his most popular story. It made him a lot of money. A lot of
films have been based on the story, and the public still enjoy reading it today.
Presenter: Thank you, Professor Lyons - that was most interesting. If you havent
read The Prisoner of Zenda yet, borrow it from your local library. Its one of those
books you just can't put it down.

after he arrives, he is walking through a forest where he meets the future king. The
two men are surprised to discover that they are so alike: they are almost identical
twins. The cousins talk excitedly about the coronation.
However, on the night before the great occasion, Rudolf Elphberg is kidnapped by his
younger brother Michael and locked in the castle in the town of Zenda. Although
Michael does not have the right to be the next king of the country, he is popular
with some of the people of Ruritania. He wants to stop the coronation so that he can
become the next king himself.
Rudolf Rassendyll solves the problem by taking his cousin place. Because the two
men look so alike, nobody realizes what is happening and the coronation takes place

to school, but was taught at home by her mother. She started writing at a young
age and wrote all her life.

" N or M? "
It is a time of war in England and everyone knows that there could be an invasion at
any time. The government knows that the enemy is being helped by a dangerous
group of spies inside the country, but nobody knows their identity. But it is
believed that the spies headquarters is a small hotel on the coast, and the spies
leaders are a man and a woman.
Two secret agents, Tommy Beresford and his wife Tuppence, are sent to the hotel
to find these spies. They meet the other hotel guests and the people from the town.
The guests include Mr. Bletchley, a retired soldier; Mrs. Sprot, a shy young
woman; and Carlvon Deinim, a scientist. Mr. Bletchley introduces Tommy to Mr.
Haydock, a retired sailor who lives in a house overlooking the sea. The three men
sometimes play golf together. The Beresfords first suspects are the hotel owner and
the scientist, but he soon discovers that both are innocent. Then they hear that the
invasion is planned for the following week. This means they have seven days to find
the enemy and save the country from invasion.
One day, after a game of golf, Tommy finds a radio transmitter hidden in Mr.
Haydocks bathroom and realizes that Haydock is one of the spies. Haydock does
not seem worried by Tommys discovery. Tommy leaves its friend's house, but on the
way back to his hotel, he's captured and locked in a room.
Tuppence discovers the other spy leader. To everyone's surprise, it is the shy
Mrs. Sprot. The police arrest her and soon find Mr. Haydock. Tommy is set free.
Without the help of the spies leaders, the invasion cannot take place. Tommy and
Tuppence have saved the country!
