READING PRACTICE

Last summer, my wife Jane and I went to visit the town where we both grew up. We hadn’t been there since we were married ten years ago. Прошлым летом моя жена Джейн и я пошли, чтобы посетить город, где мы оба выросли. Мы не были там с тех пор, как мы поженились десять лет назад.

First, we went to the neighborhood where my wife spent her childhood. It hadn’t changed very much. The house where she was born was still there, but it was now a different color. Во-первых, мы пошли в район, где моя жена провела свое детство. Он не очень изменился. Дом, в котором она родилась был все еще там, но это было теперь другого цвета.

The same neighbors still lived next door. They were very glad to see Jane, and asked us to come in and have a cup of coffee. We learned about all the neighbors, old and new. Те же соседи все еще жила по соседству. Они были очень рады видеть Джейн, и попросили, чтобы прийти и выпить чашечку кофе. Мы узнали о всех соседей, старых и новых.

Jane had a very good time. As fast as one question was answered, she would ask the next. Джейн было очень хорошее время. Так быстро, как один вопрос ответила, она бы задать следующий.

“What happened to the Dunbars who used to have the little yellow house on the corner? Who bought the old Johnson place in the next block? Do Fred and Martha Alberts still live down the street? What about Miss Burton who lived alone in that extremely big house around the corner?” “Что случилось с Dunbars, которые использовали, чтобы иметь маленький желтый дом на углу? Кто купил старое место Джонсона в следующем квартале? Ли Фред и Марта Альберт до сих пор живут по улице? А как насчет мисс Бертон который жил один в этой чрезвычайно большой дом за углом? “

Then we went to see the neighborhood where I grew up. What a disappointment! It was all changed. All the old houses I remembered were gone and in their place were some very modern ones. I didn’t know any of the people who lived there. Тогда мы пошли, чтобы увидеть районе, где я вырос. Какое разочарование! Все это было изменено. Все старые дома я вспомнил, ушли, и на их месте были некоторые очень современные. Я не знаю ни одного из тех людей, которые жили там.

Someone has said that you can’t go home again. Jane might not think so, but I believe this is true. Кто-то сказал, что вы не можете пойти домой. Джейн не могли бы думать так, но я считаю, что это правда.

Questions:

1. How long had it been since Jane and her husband visited their hometown?

2. Had Jane’s neighborhood changed very much?

3. How did she learn all the news about her neighborhood?

4. Was Jane’s husband’s neighborhood the same as when he lived there?

5. Is it true that “you can’t go home again”?

CONVERSATION

1. Looking for a new house =

SALESMAN: I think I have exactly the house you are looking for, Mr. James. It’s in a very good neighborhood. MR. JAMES: Fine. Is it near a shopping center? SALESMAN: Yes, it is. The shopping center is just a short walk. And the school, too. MR. JAMES: Good. Is the house very old? I’d like a new one. SALESMAN: All the houses here are very modern. None of them are over five years old. MR. JAMES: I’d like to see the house. From what you tell me it is just what I want. SALESMAN: I can take you to see it now.

2. Neighborhood friends =

MABEL: Have you met our new neighbors yet? They moved in last Saturday. KITTY: No, I haven’t. I understand they are renting the house. They aren’t buying it. MABEL: That’s right. I’ve talked to one of the children. He’s the same age as my son. There are five in the family: the parents, two sons, and a daughter. KITTY: Let’s go and welcome the new family to the neighborhood. I’m sure they’d like that.

MABEL: That’s a good idea. Perhaps there is something we can do for them. KITTY: Everyone was very kind when I moved here two years ago. It’s good to feel welcome in a new neighborhood.
