2. Hi, I'm Lyle. Gloria and I have been together for 12 years now. we have a son who is 11 years old —his name is Marty. Eddie lives with us, too. He's my son from my first marriage, to Sharon. About two years ago Gloria's parents asked us to come live at their house. Fred was having trouble talking care of Jeanne, and Gloria, She's always trying to help out her family, so she offered to help. Jeanne's always been over-weight, but finally, I guess, it got to the point where she couldn't get around by herself anymore. I don't mind helping out Gloria's mom, but sometimes I miss the privacy of our own home. 3. Hi, I'm Lily. I'm married to Simon, Gloria's brother. We have 2-year-old twin daughters named Kristy and Shawna. Simon—that's my husband—is in the Air Force, and he just got transferred across the country, so we have to move again. He'll be working as soon as he gets to Florida, so I have to go and find us an apartment, and find myself a job, too. There's no way I can do that and watch Kristy and Shawna at the same time .So Simon asked Gloria to take care of them until I can get us settled. I hate to do that, but we have no one else to turn to. Gloria's so sweet to us, and she said, "Sure, it's no problem." 4. Hi, I'm Eddie. Lyle is my dad. He used to be married to my Mom, Sharon, but they got divorced when I was little. I've been living with my dad ever since. When he and Gloria got married, I felt okay about it. Gloria is my step-mom, and I like her a lot. Then they had Marty, my stepbrother. Marty is a cool kid. But now we have to live with Gloria's parents, and pretty soon, her two nieces

are coming, too. I don't know how Gloria can handle taking care of all these people. It seems like everyone depends on her. So I try to help out as much as I can. Real world Listening 1.

You look kind of bummed out.

Marty: You haven't heard? Eddie: Heard what? Marty: Kristy and Shawna are moving in with us. Eddie: Yeah, I heard. Simon got transferred to Florida, right? Marty: Yeah, so he and Lily got to go there first and do a whole bunch of stuff. That means that we get stuck with the twin brats. Eddie: Ah, come on, Marty. They aren't brats. Marty: Yeah, but you know what it's going to mean? Mom and Dad aren't going to have any time for us anymore. And it's going to get even more crowded here. Just one big happy family! Eddie: Yeah, there's a lot of us now, that's for sure. I hear we're going to have to sleep in the living room so that Kristy and Shawna can have our room. Marty: I wish we were back in our old house—just us, Mom and Dad. Eddie: Yeah, sometimes I do, too. Marty: And I wish Mom and Dad wouldn't try to solve everybody's problems. Eddie: I don't think that will change. You know your mom wants to take care of everybody. She doesn't want to say no if anybody needs he. Marty: But nobody ever asks me what I want! Eddie: Kids never get to say what goes on in their house. That's the way it is. Marty: Yeah, you're right. But now everything in this house is going to be Kristy and Shawna, Kristy and shawna. Or else Grandma. Eddie: Hey, don't get mad at your grandma. She's in a lot of pain, you know.

Marty: I know. I'm not really mad at her. I'm mad at Mon and Dad. They used to always have time to help me with my homework, or play games with me, but they're always too busy. And now it's going to get even worse. Eddie: Hey, maybe I can help you with your homework. Bring it here. Marty: Really? You mean it? I'm really stuck on this math. Eddie: Sure. While things are kind of tough around here, I'll help you out as much as I can.

Unit 8 In a New Culture Vocabulary Task Answers/Script A I really like the way it is here, how safe it is. I can't get over how friendly and

helpful people are. I would like to live out my life here. B I've gotten used to it here. I used to try to figure out why they do things a certain way. C Sometimes foreigners are too inflexible. They shouldn't try to convert us to their way of doing things. They should just relax and go with the flow. Otherwise, they're not going to last long. Listening Task 1) First Activity Answers 1.like 2.dislike 3.dislike 4.like 2) Second Listening Answers 1. She feels very safe. She can leave her backpack unattended. 2. People talk about their cars a lot. 3. People compliment him when he speaks the language. People can't believe that he can use chopsticks. 4. People go out of their way to help you.

Script 1. One of the things I really like about living in Costa Rica is that it's so safe. I mean, I can go walk around the streets with 50,000 pesetas in my wallet and I don't even worry about it. In American cities, I used to worry about waling around with 20 dollars in my wallet. And another thing is that sometimes I go into a restaurant and I can leave my backpack sitting at a table and I go up to order and I come back knowing that my backpack is going to be safe and no one's even touched it . 2. People in the States are so connected to their cars. They are so concerned whether their cars look good, and they talk about their cars a lot. I think that cars isolate people. Public transportation brings people together…and it's better for the environment. Americans live in their cars. This is one thing about living here that I just can't get used to. 3. People in Tokyo overreact when I can use chopsticks or speak the language. I've been living here for three years—of course I can eat with chopsticks and say some things in their language. They act as if I were some kind of genius who had broken a secret code, or as if I had just done them a really big favor. I don't congratulate them when they speak English to me. I don't get what the big is. 4. I'll never get over how helpful people are in Tel Aviv. The other day I was shopping for a certain book, right? The bookstore I usually go to didn't have it,

so the clerk called a couple of his competitors until he found a store to hold a copy for me. After that, he photo-copied a map and highlighted where the store was, and marked the easiest route for me to get there. They would never do that in the U.S. Real World Listening

T – You have to just relax and go with the flow. T – You're not going to last long. S – The whole system is a waste of my time. X – The clerks are really rude here. T – I like the traditions. Script Steve: I can't believe these people. I can't believe what they do.

Trish: Calm down, Steve. What are you talking about? Steve: Look at this. I just bought a donut. I'm so sick of the clerk wrapping each pastry individually, then taping the bags shut, then putting those bags in another bag, folding it down, and then taping that bag shut. I can't take it anymore. It's crazy and it's bad for the environment. Trish: How long have you been living here? Don't you know that's the way it is? Steve: I just want them to stick 'em in a napkin for me , so I can eat while I'm walking to class. Trish: There you go again. Don't you know it's rude to eat while you walk? Steve: I'm so tired of this place. I don't have time to sit down and eat. People here are too inflexible, and they have too many rules. Trish: Yeah, right, Steve, so you're gonna convert everybody here to your way of doing things? Steve: Yeah, there has to be more individual freedom to do whatever you want. Trish: Why don't you just relax and go with the flow? Steve: Go with the flow? The whole system is a waste of my time. The clerks here should learn how to be more efficient, like in the U.S. Trish: What are you talking about? When I was in the U.S., the clerks were really rude. They just ignore you, and seem offended if you want anything. Don't you think it's better this way? Steve: Are you kidding? Trish: Well, I kind of like it. It's nice to relax and enjoy the moment while your

packages are being wrapped. I like all of the traditions, and the care and attention that people give you, and the manners. To me, it's a wonderful place to live. Steve: I think you're nuts. Trish: You're not gonna last long, mate.

Customer: She accused me of staining this shirt. Clerk: Hey, I was just trying to make sure… Manager: Um, why don't you go to my office and wait for me. Look, I'm very sorry. I take responsibility for her behavior. But, we'd really like to keep you as a customer and I'd be glad to exchange this item for you, or give you a full refund, whichever you'd like. Customer: Mmm, I don't know. I don't like being treated like that. I don't think she cares. Manager: Rest assured, she will be taught how to treat a valued customer. Customer: Well, okay, I guess I'll just exchange it. I like the shirt, after all. Manager: Oh, wonderful. Well, thanks for understanding. Now, may I see your receipt, please?
