II. Listening Skills
To keep our children safe from those dangerous criminals, these tips might be helpful. First, children should be encouraged always to ask permission from their caregiver before they go anywhere .They should not only tell the care giver where they will be at all times, but also who will be looking after them. also, children should never walk or ride their bikes alone. Instead, they should travel in groups whenever possible. more importantly, children should be taught to stay away from strangers, though they may offer to show them a puppy or give them candy.children should be taught to say “no” and run, scream, or fight if necessary. moreover,children should be told that no problem is too big or too small to ask grown-ups. in fact,it is never too late to ask for help ,and to keep asking until they get the help they need. last but not least ,we should realize that many child-attack cases involve a family member or family friend, for example, a stepfather, sister’s boyfriend, babysitter, neighbor, and so on.
III. Listening In
Task 1: Robbing the Left Shoe
Girl: Yes, I’d like to report a mugging.
Police Officer: Okay. can you tell me exactly what happened?
Girl: well, I was walking home from work when this woman knocked me right off my right off my feet, seized my stuff, and ran off. I was so scared that I didn’t go after her.
Police Officer: Can you describe the woman for me?
Girl: Yeah. He is quite tall, about six foot three.
Police Officer: Wait. You said a woman robbed you.
Girl: Well, I’m not really sure.[Hmm.]You see, the person was wearing a white dress,a light red sweater over it ,and she or he was wearing a pair of basketball shoes.
Police Officer: [Hmm] What else can you remember?
Girl: Well, the person…had a beard.
Police Officer: Ah. The “Bearded Woman” has struck Again!
Girl: The “Bearded Woman”?
Police Officer: Well, this “bearded Woman” is a man. He dresses up like a woman and, for some unknown reasons, likes to take the left shoe from his victims. He’s really harmless and usually returns the shoe to the crime scene a couple of days later.
Girl: Hey, he can keep my shoe, and I’ll just take off my left shoe every time I walk through the park.

Task 2: Smuggling
A young man comes up to the border on his bicycle. He has two large bags over his shoulders. The border guard stops him and says,” What’s in the bags?”
“Sand,” answers the young man.
The guard is a bit suspicious and asks the young man to open the bags for inspection. The guard empties the bags, but finds nothing in them but sand. Then he has the sand analyzed, only to discover that there is noting but pure sand in the bags. So the young man is allowed to ride across the border with his sandbags.
A week later, the same young man presents himself at the border with his bags. The guard asks,” What have you got?” “Sand,” says the young man.
The guard does his thorough examination and discovers that the bags contain nothing but sand. He gives the sand back to the young man who then rides across the border on his bicycle with the sandbags.
This happens every week for three years. Finally, the young man no longer appears at the border crossing. Many months go by and the border guard meets the young man in an expensive cafe.
“Hey,” says the guard,” for three ears you were smuggling something through my crossing station. It’s driving me crazy. Just between you and me, what were you smuggling?” The young man drinks his coffee and says, “Bicycles.”

Task 3: Who’s the Murderer?
A passing police car heard loud screams and responded immediately. When the police arrived at the scene, hey found Pete’s dead body in his backyard, with man knife wounds and blood everywhere. The officer immediately went to question the three neighbors that had been outside in the past thirty minutes.
Blake Smith had just finished painting his porch when the officer came. A young, polite man, Blake wiped his hands on his clean jeans before shaking hands, and said,” I really didn’t see or hear anything,” he added apologetically. Nelson Brown had been in his garden, right next door to the victim’s yard. He said,” I was in and out of the house. Weeding.” His hands were dirty. Then he added,” Inside, I was repairing a chair, It all must have happened when I was indoors. Sorry.”
Kenny Green’s story seemed less believable.” I was on a ladder, washing my windows,” the middle-aged man admitted. The officer could see that Kenny’s yard overlooked the victim’s. But Kenny claimed,” I never looked over into Pete’s yard, nor did I hear anything.”
Now the officer believed that one of the guys was lying. Who was this man?

IV. Speaking Out
Model 1 Bye-bye, bully!
Se-Jin: john, do you mind if I ask you something?
John: No, what is it?
Se-Jin: you seem nervous. Is that big guy still bullying you?
John: Yeah. Today he wanted me to give him some money. He even pushed me when I said no.
Se-Jin: That’s terrible! You have to talk to a teacher about this.
John: I thought about that, but I’m afraid that everyone will think I’m a coward.
Se-Jin: your safety is more important than what other people think.
John; But telling a teacher could make things worse. The big guy warned me not to .
Se-Jin: Of course he did! He doesn’t want to get into trouble. Look, if you’re still worried, tell the teacher not to mention your name when she talks to him.
John: Good idea. But I think I can deal with him on my own.
SAMPLE DIALOG
A: Hi, can I talk to you for a minute?
B: Sure, what is it?
A: You look worried. Are you still being bullied by that big boy in you class?
B: Yeah. Today he asked me to help him cheat in the final exam.
A: That’s too bad! You have to talk with your parents about it.
B:I thought about that, but I’m afraid that other people will laugh at me if I turn to my parents for help.
A: Don’t be silly. It’s more important to protect yourself.
B: Maybe you are right. I should tell this to my parents, and they will give me some advice.
Model 2 My house has been robbed!
Operator: Colchester Police Station. Can I help you?
Jane: I hope so. My house has been robbed.
Operator: Where do you live?
Jane: 2B Southbank Road.
Operator: When did you discover the burglary
Jane: When I got home from work. About five minutes ago.
Operator: Was anything stolen?
Jane: yes. All my jewelry’s gone, and my computer too. And they wrote dirty words all over my walls.
Operator: How did they get in ?
Jane: They forced the back door.
Operator: An officer will be round in about half an hour. Please don't touch anything.
SAMPLE DIALOG
A: Broadway Police Station. May I help you?
B: I hope so. My house has been broken into.
A: Where do you live?
B: 43 Main Street.
A: When did you find out about the break-in?
B: When we got home from the theater. About two minutes ago.
A: How did they break in?
B: They forced open the back door.
A: Was anything stolen?
B: Yes. All my cash in the drawer, and my mobile phone too. And they broke all the glass.
A: OK, an officer will come in about 20 minutes. Please don’t leave fingerprints anywhere.
Model 3 We should create harsher sentences for bootleggers.
Jane: It’s about time that the government got tough with bootleggers. Their fake liquors have already killed several people.
Peter: Yeah, that’s too high a price to pay. It’s almost a rip-off. The bootleggers use industrial alcohol to cut costs and increase profits.
Jane: Perhaps we should cut taxes on liquor. With lower taxes, bootlegging will decrease.
Peter: But that can create a new problem. That’s not in agreement with the WTO rules.
Jane: I think through negotiation with other nations, perhaps we can cut taxes under the WTO framework.
Peter: That may be tough. Perhaps a better solution is to create harsher sentences for bootleggers.
Jane: I agree. Our country needs a special team to deal with this problem. Then we can crack down on bootlegging.
SAMPLE DIALOG
A: It’s time the government took stricter standards control on cosmetic products. The low quality cosmetics have caused various skin diseases among users.
B: Yeah, the producers use harmful ingredients to lower costs and add profits.
A: Perhaps taxes on cosmetics should be cut. With lower taxes, low quality cosmetic products will be less profitable and decrease.
B: But there is a new problem. Cutting taxes goes against the WTO rules.
A: I think by negotiating with other countries we can reduce taxes.
B: That may be hard. Maybe the best idea is to take stricter standards control on cosmetic products.
A: I agree. We should have some regulations to keep a check on the production and marketing of cosmetic.
V. Let’s Talk
Texas Police Arrest Oldest Bank Robber
Texas police say they have arrested a 90-yeard-old man, Henry Robert, who is accused of robbing a bank, probably making him the oldest bank robber in U.S. history.
Police said Robert, who was not armed, asked a teller to put money into a large envelope with the word “robbery” written on it. A witness took down on the license number of his car, and he was arrested on a highway about 15 miles outside the city.
If he is proved guilty, Robert will face from ten to twenty years in prison. He told police he needed the money, and he had a complaint against banks.
fdb ert left a prison in Florida, where he was the oldest prisoner in the state, about a year ago. Before that, he served a three-year sentence for a bank robbery in Florida in 19
  99.
In a prison interview with a journalist, Robert said he had been a businessman in Texas but had fallen on hard times. He said he robbed his first bank when he was about 80 because he wanted to revenge against banks.
“A bank that I’d done business with had forced me into bankruptcy. I have never liked banks since,” he told the journalist.” I decided I would get even. And I have.”
74 5 6 8 3 2 1
Possible Retelling for the Teacher’s Reference
As the title suggests, the 90-year-old Henry Robert the Texas Police arrested may turn out to be the oldest bank robber in history. Let me describe him from the very beginning.
When he was 80 years old he robbed his first bank in Florida because he wanted to get even with banks. For this robbery he received a three-year sentence in a Florida prison in 19
  99. A year ago he was set free. However, he continued with his outlaw career. In Texas, he robbed again, using an envelope labeled “Robbery”. He asked the teller to put money into the envelope. Unluckily for him, a witness took down the license number of his car that was parked outside. So he was arrested on a highway not far away from the city. He is now 90 years old, and therefore he is probably the oldest bank robber in American history. If proved guilty, he will be sentenced to ten to twenty years in prison.
VI. Further Listening and Speaking
Task 1: Describing a Robbery
Detective: Okay, Ms. Brown, just calm down. Could you start from the beginning and tell me what happened?
Janet: Well, let’s see. I was sitting at the table near the window when two men rushed in and told everyone to freeze.
Detective: Can you describe the man?
Janet: One was tall and with a long coat on. The other was shorter in a red jacket.
Detective: After they burst in what did they do?
Janet: Well. The tall one pointed his gun at the clerk and told him to open the cash register. The short one was watching the rest of us. The clerk hesitated a minute and just then the restaurant manger came out of his office. That surprised the thieves.
Detective: Yeah, let’s see… The manger’s name is Mr. Jackson. I guess he had the key to the safe?
Janet: Yeah! That’s right! Because the thieves told him to open the safe. The short one went with him. As the manger turned to go back to the office, he told the clerk to cooperate with him.
Detective: Did the boss open up the safe?
Janet: Yeah, he went back into the office and opened it. He seemed pretty calm, not like the customers. I think that guy deserves a medal or something.
Sam: You all do. Living through a robbery is a tough experience.

  1. everyone freeze

  2. tall long coat shorter red jacket

  3. his gun the clerk open the rest of the people

  4. key safe

  5. calm customers a medal
Task 2: Two Concert Tickets
After shopping for most of the day, a couple return to find their car has been stolen. They go to the
police station to make a full report. Then, a police officer drives them back to the parking lot to
see if any evidence can be found at the scene of the crime. To their surprise, the car has been
returned. There is an envelope on the windshield with a note of apology and two tickets to a
concert. The note reads, “I apologize for taking your car, but my wife was having a baby and I
had to use your car to rush her to the hospital. Please forgive the inconvenience. Here are two
tickets for tonight’s concert.” The couple feel relieved. After all, most human beings are kind, they
think. They go to the concert and return home late. They find their house has been robbed.
