3. Откройте текст аудиозаписи, расположенный ниже теста, и посмотрите, насколько точно вы поняли содержание.

As much as I used to” используется, когда говорится о том, что происходило раньше часто, но не происходит так часто сейчас. Пример:This year I’m going to try not to eat as much chocolate as I used to.

“Getting a lot of enjoyment out of” = “I enjoy +Ving” (люблю, получаю большое удовольствие от). Пример:I get a lot of enjoyment out of playing with my dog.

 “I do listen” do добавляется здесь к “I listen” для усиления, чтобы убедить собеседника. Пример: - Why don’t you ever speak in class? - I do speak in class when I’m in small groups, but I’m shy in front of everyone.

Therapeutic - прилагательное от слова  therapy. Характеризует то, что улучшает ваше состояние, самочувствие. Пример: Taking a bath when you are stressed out can be very therapeutic.

Have a big part to play in” означает "иметь большое значение, быть важным для, играть большую роль в". Пример: My music teacher has a big part to play in how much I love music. The location has a big part to play in the success of a business.


Tod and Monika

    buying newspapers
    reading newspapers
    both buying and reading them
  2. When travelling Monika prefers
    reading books
    reading newspapers
    watching movies
  3. Who loves listening to e-books?
  4. Monika listens to e-books
    when she travels
    when she has nothing to read
    when she is tired




Todd: Actually I still enjoy newspapers somewhat. I like to eat my lunch and read the newspaper or maybe have a newspaper when I’m taking the bus or the train, so I have something to read, but I don’t buy them as much as I used to.

Monica: Yeah, that’s true, I really like the idea of having a newspaper in paper form and I do enjoy opening it up and having a coffee in the morning and reading the newspaper, but I don’t actually do that now.

Todd: So how often do you actually start and finish a book?

Monica: Well, I’ve been reading maybe one or two books a week, recently which is quite a lot for me.

Todd: Yeah, that’s pretty good.

Monica: As I said earlier, it’s really because I have a bit more spare time than I used to so that has changed my reading habits. And when I’m traveling I love reading, so if I’m on a train I love reading a book and if I’m on a plane I prefer to read a book than watch a movie, for example, so I get a lot of enjoyment out of reading books, still.

Having said that I do listen to e-books on the computer...

Todd: Oh, I love e-books.

Monica:...which I love because it’s very therapeutic I think listening to someone reading to you, a bit like when you were little and your mom used to read you a book. I like to do that when I’m really tired and I don’t want to actually physically read a book and I don’t want to even check my e-mail. I just want to lie down and basically listen to a story. Yeah, so I have enjoyed doing that recently and technology has had a big part to play in how much I do that.
