A. Nostradamus' real name was Michel de Nostradame. He was born on the 14th of December, 1503, in a small town in southern France. As a child he was very good at mathematics and astrology. At the age of 15, he became a university student, but the University was soon closed because of the plague. Nostradamus travelled across the country and helped victims of the plague using his own methods. It is said that he invented a 'rose pill' that could protect people against the plague. Sadly, his first wife and two small children later died of the plague.
B. Nostradamus continued to learn and practise medicine, but he also got interested in astrology. Soon legends began to grow about his strange ability to predict the future. One story said that when Nostradamus was in Italy, he met a monk. He immediately went down on his knees and called the monk 'Your Holiness’. About 45 years later the monk became Pope.
C. Nostradamus realized that he had an unusual gift and started writing down his predictions in the form of four-line poems. He quickly became famous, and even Queen Catherine de Medici wanted to meet him. Nostradamus predicted the death of her husband, King Henry II, and in 1559 his prediction came true! It is said that Nostradamus even predicted his own death! When his assistant wished him goodnight on the lsl of July, 1566, Nostradamus said: You won't find me alive at sunrise’. He was found dead on the 2nd of July.
D. All in all, Nostradamus wrote over 900 predictions about the future of the world. They were published in two books called The Centuries, which were published in 1555 and 1558. Nostradamus' four-line poems predicted events from the mid-1500s until the end of the world. People have studied and interpreted his predictions since the sixteenth century!
E. The problem with these predictions is that they are very vague and can mean many things. Nostradamus made his poems difficult to understand by using words from Latin, French, Greek and Italian. They have anagrams and riddles and are not placed in chronological order. This was because he didn’t want the Church to accuse him of being a magician or a heretic.
F. But just how did Nostradamus predict the future? He worked with ancient books, he studied the stars using his knowledge of astrology. He also looked into a bowl of water until he had an inspiration or saw an image. But his favourite technique for predicting was gazing into a crystal ball. He fell under a trance for two hours and more. When he came out of the trance he would find that he had written a quatrain of the events he had seen.
G. Many of his predictions seem true. But some of the events never happened. Let's take a look at this famous prediction:
'Like the great king Angolmois The year 1999, seventh month,
The great king of terror will come from the sky,
At this time, Mars will reign for the good cause'.
Just imagine how people felt in 1999! Some said that Nostradamus predicted the end of the world, others thought that he spoke about an invasion from outer space. But nothing happened.

Maurice Gerald reached the stream and finally fell asleep. But the pain of his wounds, once more returning, woke him. To go away from the spot was simply impossible. Any movement gave him pain. There was no alternative but stay where he was.
Suddenly Maurice heard little feet on the sand and excited breathing. The coyotes! The smell of blood had made them mad. The mustanger knew they would attack him. He had no weapon but a knife. His rifle and guns had been carried off by his horse. He drew the knife and prepared to defend himself. Four or five wolves attacked the wounded man. Maurice shook them off, striking out with his knife. Some of the coyotes went away, but new ones appeared. Suddenly the wounded man heard the sound of hoofs, followed by the loud barking of a dog. He called for help. But the horseman didn't hear him. The horse, or horseman passed on, but the dog — it was Tara! — broke through the bushes and rushed to the coyotes. It attacked two of the wolves. A third one could be attacked, but the frightened coyotes ran away.
The man had no strength left. He drew the cloak over his face to cover it from the sun, and then he fell asleep. The dog lay down at his feet.
A few hours later the mustanger woke up. His faithful dog had saved his life, and would still protect him against the attacks of coyotes. But it couldn’t get him from the spot. And to stay there would be to die of hunger and of the wounds.
’But Tara may take a message to the hunters,’ he said. ’Come here, old fellow! I want you to play a postman for me.’
Maurice found a card in his pocket. No pencil! He could do without it.
He broke a thorn otT the closest bush and wrote something with the blood of a coyote. Then he tied the card to the neck of the dog and made it go to the hut.
After a while the mustanger was surrounded by the coyotes again.
This time Maurice had a plan. He took off his cloak and cut a few holes with his knife. Then he tore up his scarf in two parts and used them to tie the cloak to a tree, making a hammock. The mustanger climbed into the hammock. He thought there he was no longer in danger.
There was danger, however, which he had not seen. Very soon he realized he hadn't taken with him enough water. He could not return to the stream now. That would be certain death. It was a torture for the wounded man to see the fresh water of the stream and be unable to reach it.
Suddenly he saw the coyotes get to their feet and rush off. What made them leave?
The mustanger turned on his knee and looked around. There were no coyotes. He listened. No sounds. Maurice got out of the hammock and reached the stream. He once more looked around him and felt danger. He noticed the spotted yellow skin among the leaves. It was the jaguar. It was that dangerous animal that had made the coyotes go away. And now its eyes were on the wounded man. It was ready to attack Maurice.
Maurice didn't remember where he had lost his rifle and guns.

Neil Armstrong was an excellent engineer and an outstanding pilot. He got the assignment to land a completely novel rocket machine on the Earth’s Moon because he was the perfect man for the job. He knew all the capabilities of his ship. What is more, he had a remarkable ability to keep his wits about him in extremely dangerous situations.
On July 20, 1969, at 10:39 pm, five hours ahead of the original schedule, Neil Armstrong opened the hatch of the lunar module. As he made his way down the ladder, Armstrong spoke his famous quote: “That’s one small step for a man, and one giant leap for mankind.” He then planted his left foot on the grey, powdery surface, took a cautious step forward, and became the first human to walk on the surface of the Moon.
You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You have to answer six questions. Give full answers to the questions. Remember that you have 40 seconds to answer each question.
Electronic assistant: Hello! It’s the electronic assistant of the English Youth Club. We kindly ask you to take part in our survey. We need to find out about holidays in your region. Please answer six questions. The survey is anonymous, so you don’t have to give your name. Let’s get started.
Electronic assistant: What country are you from? How long have you lived in your region?
Student: (pause 40 seconds) I am from Russia. I've been living there for 15 years.
Electronic assistant: How many public holidays are celebrated in your country?
Student: (pause 40 seconds)Major National Holidays are New Year Holiday, Orthodox Christmas day, Defender of the Fatherland Day,International Women's Day, Spring and Labour Day, Victory Day, Russia Day,Unity Day
Electronic assistant: What is the most popular public holiday in your country?
Student: (pause 40 seconds) In the Soviet Union, this holiday was called the Day of International Solidarity of Workers and was devoted to workers’ struggle for their rights. In modern Russia, this day has lost its political overtones, so for most Russians it’s just the May holidays – a time for picnics and the opening of the summer season. Trains are overcrowded on these days with people hurrying to their dacha (summer house) plots (with their ever-present seedlings), so travelling with them is best avoided.
Electronic assistant: What is your most favourite holiday and why?
Student: (pause 40 seconds)My favorite holiday is New Year because we get two weeks of vacations. I can sit at home all day and watch my favorite TV programs. Or, for example, play with my friends. Also there are many dishes in that time of the year. I celebrate that holiday at home with my friends and relatives.
Electronic assistant: Is there any traditional festival in your country? How do people usually celebrate it?
Student: (pause 40 seconds) The New Year is the first in calendar and in popularity. It will be true to say that now the New Year is a greater holiday than Christmas in Russia. Long before December 31 sparkling fir trees appear in the streets, shops, offices and houses, bringing the joy of festive preparations and hope for happy miracles in the coming New Year. It is time to make wishes and presents to all friends and relatives. Children are looking forward for Father Frost (actually he is Grandfather Frost - Ded Moroz in Russian) and his granddaughter Snow Maiden (Snegurochka) to arrive at night and leave presents under the fir-tree. The grown-ups traditionally stay up for the whole night, making merry with friends and relatives..
Electronic assistant: What holiday or festival would you advise your foreign friend to take part in? Explain why.
Student: (pause 40 seconds) Maslenitsa is a traditional Russian holiday. The idea is the similar with Brazilian and Venezian Carneval. The main aim of this celebration is to say goodbye to winter and welcome the spring. I remember that we ate pancakes and played different games in the open air.
Electronic assistant: This is the end of the survey. Thank you very much for your cooperation.
