teachers talk a lot and some don't. I do think that teachers need to be strict, but they don't need to be very strict. I do believe that discipline is important. Yes, I like teachers who are amusing. I think you enjoy the lesson more and so you learn more. And I agree with the statement that the most popular teachers are very kind. Everyone likes kind people. Of course, good teachers always return homework quickly. I think that's very important. And
the next statement is obviously true, a teacher must check that everyone in the class understands. What about the next statement? No, I don't agree with that at all. There are times when a teacher needs to talk without interruption. And the last statement—It doesn't matter if a teacher is not organised. That's really stupid. A teacher must be organised. How can a student learn if the teacher isn't organised?

Where Do They Like to Live? (Student's Book: p. 89) Speaker 1
I don't want to live too far from my parents' home. I'd like to be able to visit them at weekends and enjoy the quiet of the countryside. And when they grow older, I won't live too far away, but I would like to live in a big city where there are a great many things to do. I think it's easier to find a good job in a city because there are more employment opportunities. Speaker 2
I've lived here with my parents all my life but we haven't always lived in this apartment block. We've only just moved into this apartment. Until recently, we lived in a fifteen-storey high-rise building about a half a mile away. It was near a very noisy road and my mother didn't like it there. So we are pleased with our new home. Speaker 3 It's an ideal place to live, especially for young people
because it's a very lively town. I never get bored because there are a great many things to do here. There is a modern shopping centre and a new cinema which shows all the latest films. city There centre is an with attractive traditional
There's a huge park where you can imagine you are in the countryside. Speaker 4
Well, local people are very friendly and everyone knows everyone else. But that is the only good thing about life here. There is nothing for young people to do and there are no buses back from town at night. There are no shops here and the post office has closed down. There are no employment here either. opportunities in a city. Speaker 5
Personally, I'd much rather live
countryside. I don't like living in the city because it's noisy and dirty and the people there aren't friendly. I live in a very small apartment and I have to share a room with my brother. Our apartment is in a suburb and the architecture is not very attractive. My dream is to belong to a small community. Module 5 Vocabulary and Listening (Student's Book: p. 41)

Listening and Speaking (Student's Book: p. 95) The aim of this experiment is to write a secret message with invisible ink. For the experiment, you need the following things: a lemon, a small container, a pen, some white writing paper, a candle and some matches.
First, squeeze the lemon and pour the juice into a container. A glass or a cup will be fine. Next, take your pen and dip it into the lemon juice then write your message in large letters on a clean sheet of white writing paper. After that, blow on the paper to dry the lemon juice. Your secret message is ready and you can exchange messages with another student.
Next, light a candle with the matches. Finally, hold the paper near the candle flame. The message will gradually appear on the paper. The words are a light brown colour. The message appears on the paper when you heat it because the lemon juice reacts with oxygen in the air. This reaction produces a brown coloured oxide which you can see. Module 6
