Общие положения

События, происходящие в мире, заставляют по-новому взглянуть на роль иностранных языков. Открываются границы, возможность выехать зарубеж становится просто и доступно. Миграционные потоки захлестнули весь земной шар. Если раньше не все могли посмотреть мир, то сегодня такая возможность появилась у очень многих. При таких условиях требуются знания даже не одного иностранного языка. Иностранный язык приобретает новый статус, становясь посредником в межкультурной коммуникации.

Становление профессионала в любой отрасли означает выход на высокой коммуникативный уровень не только в пределах своей страны, но и зарубежными партнерами. В таких условиях требуются расширенные знания иностранного языка, как устного, так и письменного.

На сегодняшний момент целью изучения иностранного языка становится не только чтение и понимание иноязычных текстов (как было ранее), но и практическое владение иностранным языком на уровне межкультурной коммуникации. Одним из шагов овладения иностранным языком является понимание устной речи, которое успешно развивается через аудирование. Аудирование при использовании современных компьютерных технологий превращается в интерактивный процесс, в котором задействуются все виды перцепции.

Стремительное развитие компьютерных технологий предоставляет нам возможность по-новому строить образовательный процесс. У нас появились возможности новых методов изучения иностранных языков. Появились мультимедийные обучающие комплексы, которые можно очень успешно можно использовать в процессе изучения иностранных языков.

Мы предлагаем вашему вниманию методический материал, который успешно внедряется нами в лингво-педагогическую практику. Данную форму обучения можно отнести к методам компьютерной лингводидактики. Поскольку использование таких методов осуществляется при помощи современных компьютерных технологий.

Материал рассчитан на студентов начального этапа обучения и состоит из 16 тем. Каждая тема сопровождается видеороликом. Методические указания разработаны согласно каждому мини-фильму. Предложенные задания направлены на закрепление лексики темы, способствуют более полному пониманию иноязычной речи.

Цели и задачи методических указаний

Данные методические указания ставят своей целью развитие навыков аудирования студентов с практическим использованием лексических единиц посредством разнообразных упражнений.

Методические указания предназначены как для аудиторной, так и самостоятельной работы студентов на начальном этапе изучения английского языка.

Методические указания помогут студентам понять структуру английского языка и его использование в диалогической и монологической видах речи.

Film scripts

1. Entertaining

Jeff: Congratulations , Kristin. You're the perfect voice for WMJT's news program. You'll be even more appealing than Katie Baxter ever was.

Kristin: Oh, Jeff. Thank you.

Jeff: You'll wake me up every morning. It will motivate me to begin the day in a positive mood .

Kristin: And who will motivate me to get up every day at half past five?

Jeff: Are you going to change the concept of the program?

Kristin: We're still arguing about that. We have this mix of entertainment and news, and I believe that the news is at least as important as the entertainment. After all, it is a news program.

Jeff: Actually , it's more important!

Kristin: That's one viewpoint , but other people think that it's less important. It's also a question of what the public wants, and we know that's not less important!

Emma: Do you like Aunt Rachel?

Tom: Yes. I do.

Christopher: Why do you like her?

Tom: Why... She's a very nice and special person.

Emma: You're right. She's almost as nice as Mom.

Christopher: Yeah. But Mom's not as cool as she is. Sometimes she lets us do stuff that Mom never does.

Emma: And why do you...

Tom: I don't know. I just know one thing. Christopher is as curious as a cat, and Emma is even more curious!

Emma: No I'm not!

Kristin: Good morning. This is WMJT. It's time for today's headlines with Kristin Porter.

Jeff: Congratulations on your new job, Kristin!

2. Fine dining

Head waiter: Do you have a reservation ?

Rachel: Yes. I think so.

Head waiter: For how many people?

Rachel: It's a table for four, but it's not in my name...

Tom: Hi, Rachel.

Rachel: Excuse me. Hi Tom!

Tom: Rachel! How are you?

Rachel: Did you make a reservation for us?

Tom: No, I didn't, but I think Kristin did. Try Porter.

David: Porter? Here we are! Welcome to Boston, Rachel.

Rachel: Thank you. I'm so glad to be here. I have a wonderful new job, a great apartment and I'm here with my loved ones.

Kristin: It was a good decision .

Rachel: Yes, it was. I'm a hundred percent sure. Boston is really a beautiful place.

Tom: Is our table ready ?

Head waiter: There's one available near the window. And one next to the fireplace.

Tom: The fireplace ... That sounds perfect.

David: When did you get here Rachel?

Rachel: I arrived last night, after two days on the road.

Kristin: I asked her to stay at our house, but...

Rachel: ...but I wanted to spend my first night in Boston in my new apartment.

3. Coffee, tea, dessert

David: So, Kristin told me that you had an important interview.

Tom: Yes, with Mick Morrison.

David: Mick Morrison? Who's that?

Tom: Geez David! Mick Morrison is number one on the charts !

David: OK, OK. I guess I'm not with it. Anyway , how did it go - the interview? I mean?

Tom: Mmm... In the end it went fine, but the beginning was...

Rachel: ...a disaster .

David: A disaster? What happened ?

Tom: Phew ... It was terrible . Everything went fine at first. I was on time , he was on time, we sat down I began my questions, but...

Tom: ... I didn't record it.

David: You're kidding .

Tom: I'm not kidding. I didn't turn on my tape recorder . I just... I just... forgot . After a while I noticed and...

David: Did you tell him?

Tom: Of course I told him!

David: And what did he say?

Tom: He said: "Don't worry, bro. At my first concert I forgot my guitar!"

Waiter: Excuse me. Are you ready to order dessert now? We have a wonderful chocolate cheesecake. And the tiramisu is fantastic.

Kristin: Just a moment, please. I think we... forgot about dessert.

Rachel: A black coffee for me, please.

Kristin: Who's having dessert?

Tom: I am. The chocolate cheesecake, please.

Kristin: Mmm... Sounds good.

David: Just a cup of tea for me, please.

Waiter: With lemon? Or milk.

David: Just lemon, no milk.

Kristin: What's the "Apple In and Out"?

Waiter: That's a sort of apple pie. It's really delicious .

Kristin: OK. I'll have that.

4. Meal planning

Tom: Hmm... Do I need anything? I need a lot of things. Vegetables, potatoes...

Hello Rachel! Come in! How was your day?

Rachel: Excellent ! I love this job. It's so interesting, I have a lot of responsibility , my co-workers are great and I'm having a wonderful time.

Tom: Don't you miss teaching?

Rachel: Hmm... No. I liked teaching very much, as you know, but I wanted to do something else. I wanted to move on . I made the right decision . I really believe that. And... ... don't forget that I need to live in Boston.

Tom: I see your point .

Rachel: What are you doing, making a grocery list ?

You wanted to cook tonight ! That's wonderful! I'd love to cook together!

Tom: Actually , I wanted to invite you to a very nice little restaurant that I found on the other side of town...

Rachel: Oh no! Let's stay in.

Do you want to make lasagne? What do we need?

We need the noodles , of course. We need oil, onions , garlic , tomatoes, pepper, salt, mushrooms , oregano, basil , cheese, and ground beef .

Tom: I have everything except for the mushrooms and the ground beef.

Rachel: Then let's leave out the ground beef, forget about the mushrooms, and have a vegetarian lasagne. We'll cook it together and we won't even go out of the house!

Tom: Now, that's a good idea!

5. Checking account

Tom: What time do you have to be at the bank to open your new account ?

Rachel: Oh, I don't have to be there at any special time. I just called them to ask about all these options for checking accounts. They say I can talk to an account representative in person, if I still have questions. And I do.

Tom: Like what?

Rachel: Well. I'd like to open a deluxe checking account . But it says here that you have to maintain a minimum balance of $3,000

Tom: That's common practice .

Rachel: But does that mean that it all must be in the checking account itself? Maybe I can have a combined balance of three thousand between the checking and the savings .

Tom: Hmm. At my bank, I don't have to keep as high a balance. I only have to have twenty-five hundred between both accounts. But the checking account still must not drop below a thousand.

Rachel: That sounds better than three thousand!

Tom: What else ?

Rachel: I like all the free services that come with the deluxe account. But I don't like having to keep so much money in my account all the time.

Tom: Do you have to have the services?

Rachel: No, I don't have to have them, but I want them.

Tom: Well, maybe you can get some of them with the regular account .

Rachel: There are so many options listed here. I can't make up my mind .

Tom: You don't have to yet. Talk to them first and see what they say.

Rachel: I will. Let's go to the bank now.

6. Budget

David: Is everything fine upstairs ?

Kristin: Yes. I always have to tell them the same story. Otherwise they refuse to go to bed. It must be that story .

David: The one about the little cat? Kristin: Mm-hmm. Once upon a time ...

David: ...there was a little cat...

I'm going over the bills from this month.

Kristin: And?

David: They really went up . The electric bill, for example. It was really high. We should be more careful , shut things off when we're not using them...

Kristin: It is getting colder now though . The electric bill's always higher in wintertime.

David: True. But that's all the more reason why we should take care . We must get Emma and Christopher to cooperate , too. They're old enough now. They have to do a better job of turning off the video games when they're not playing them, for example.

Kristin: I agree . We'll have to insist on that. In summer we'll have lower costs again.

David: Lower costs?

Kristin: I mean electricity, gas...

David: Yes, but what about our vacation ?

Kristin: That's true . And I'd like to be able to afford to go somewhere really nice this year.

David: We talked about seeing France and Italy. Good food, nice weather, a lot of beautiful architecture, churches , castles ...

Kristin: I hope we'll be able to manage it. Remember we also have to go to Los Angeles to visit my mother.

David: And the children want to go to camp again this summer.

Kristin: Do you think we can swing it?

David: Yes, but we'll have to pinch pennies as much as possible.

7. Tennis

Rachel: Tom! What's going on?

Tom: I'm getting back into sports.

Rachel: For the first time in five years?

Tom: ...and I'm going to beat him.

Rachel: Who are you going to beat? The man in the mirror ? Hmm... You might have a chance .

Tom: I'm going to play tennis with David this afternoon. And I will beat him.

Rachel: David? David is a good player!

Tom: Yes, he's a good player. But I think like a winner . I know I'll beat him!

Rachel: Why not play doubles ? You and David as partners. You'll beat the other guys, for sure !

Tom: That might be a good idea. David: Wow ... Nice outfit !

Rachel: Tom is going to beat you. He's sure about that.

Tom: No, not sure...but I might beat him. Do you really play that well?

David: No, I don't play very well, but I play quite often. Twice a week.

Tom: Twice a week...

David: And today I'm looking forward to a match against a strong young opponent!

Tom: I see...

David: Of course, I may lose, but I'll give you a run for your money !

Rachel: It's almost four o'clock. I'm leaving. Kristin is expecting me. Have a good game!

David: Good-bye!

Tom: Good-bye!

So David, how about playing doubles? Do you like doubles?

David: No way. I want to beat you one-on-one.

Tom: You're not going to beat me!

David: You never can tell! I might

8. Outdoor activities

Kristin: Would you like some grapes ? Or an apple maybe?

Rachel: I'd rather have an orange. Do you have any oranges?

Kristin: Yes, I do. I'll have the grapes. Here we are.

Rachel: Thanks.

Kristin: I am exhausted . Whew... You walk so fast

Rachel: Isn't that the point of power walking ?

Kristin: Yes.. .I guess it is. I really like it. It's so different from jogging . Let's do this every week.

Rachel: Good idea.

Kristin: And let's ask David and Tom, too.

Rachel: I don't know... Maybe Tom would rather not do that with me again ?

Kristin: Oh? Why not?

Rachel: Well, I called him early one Saturday morning. We both lived in Chicago at that time. I wanted him to go power walking with me. But he was really grumpy and...

Kristin: And just how early was this, health nut?

Rachel: Not early. It was about 8:30.

Kristin: Eight-thirty! Rachel, a lot of people are still in bed at eight-thirty on Saturday morning!

Rachel: Well, I didn't know his habits then. Anyway, he showed up at my door unshaven and in rumpled clothes .

Kristin: And then what.

Rachel: We went power walking for just a short time, but he got out of breath right away .

Kristin: Define "for just a short time."

Rachel: Not long at all.

Kristin: Rachel?

Rachel: No, really! No more than 20 minutes.

Kristin: OK, and then what happened?

Rachel: He almost collapsed from exhaustion , so we took a taxi home. He was quite embarrassed !

Kristin: Well, maybe he won't want to go. Let's not ask him, then.

'By the way, talking about Saturdays, next Saturday we're going up to Queen Lake . David's going to fish, and the children are going to go horseback riding . Would you like to join us?

Rachel: Next Saturday? Let's see... I'm not sure . I think Tom bought theatre tickets for Saturday night.

Kristin: Well, come with us! We'll certainly be back by seven at the latest . You'll have plenty of time to get ready for the theatre.

Rachel: I'd rather come home earlier, so I can have enough time to shower and dress.

Kristin: OK, we'll be back by six. Let's plan on it!

9. Change of career

Rachel: It is a big change . I mean... In Chicago, I was a gym teacher and now I'm the coordinator for the whole physical education department .

In Chicago, I was teaching full-time , but here I'm doing a lot of administrative work.

Kristin: How are your colleagues ?

Rachel: They're really nice people. Very friendly.

Kristin: You're lucky then.

Rachel: Yeah, I really am.

Kristin: Sugar?

Rachel: No, thanks. I never have sugar with my coffee. You know me, the health food nut .

Kristin: Yeah. I know.

Rachel: One...Two... Two sugar cubes. That's enough energy for an entire day.

Kristin: I need it. It was rather a heavy afternoon.

Rachel: I'm sorry, Kristin, but I needed a lot of new things for my new apartment .

Kristin: What's next on the list ?

Rachel: Well. I have stuff for the kitchen. I have pots and pans , knives... that sort of thing. And I also have the basics for cooking: salt, pepper, oil, rice...

Kristin: And the bathroom?

Rachel: I still need a big mirror there. That's all. My bedroom is OK...

Kristin: ... but you need more furniture for the living-room. What furniture do you have? Three chairs, a table, a sofa... What else ?

Rachel: That's it, basically. But for the moment, I don't care . We bought enough this afternoon. Don't you think so?

Kristin: Oh yes, I do. What time is it?

Rachel: It's half past five.

Kristin: Half past five! I've got to go! David and the kids are on their way home.

10. Daily schedules

Tom: Is that Emma and Christopher in this picture?

Kristin: Yes. This is Emma and that's Christopher.

Tom: What are you all doing here?

Kristin: We're having a party. We're singing, and dancing, and having fun.

Tom: And where is this scene taking place ?

Tom: A successful career and a wonderful family. You have it all! How do you do it?

Kristin: There's only one way to do that: plan. That's very important . Plan everything!

We get up at six-thirty in the morning.

Tom: What time do you get up?

Tom: When do you go to work?

Kristin: Sometimes I work from home, like today. And sometimes I go to the office. But I always begin work at half past eight.

Tom: And when do you stop?

Kristin: A journalist never stops. Don't forget those wise words, Tom.

Tom: A journalist never stops. My interview!

Kristin: Take it easy . Tom. You still have more than an hour.

Tom: Thank you very much for your help, Kristin.

Kristin: You're welcome . This way, Tom. This way.

11. L unch date rescheduling

Michael: Yes, they're six months. They're so cute .

David: Do they sleep through the night yet?

Michael: Yes, they sleep very well. And I'm very happy about that.

David: I'd like to see them sometime.

Michael: Why don't you come over on Saturday or Sunday?

David: I can't make it this weekend. It's Emma's birthday, so, of course, we're having a birthday party for her.

Michael: By the way , David, I forgot to tell you - I can't come to the meeting tomorrow morning.

David: Really? Why not?

Michael: I can't be in two places at the same time.

David: What do you mean?

Michael: I need to be at another meeting tomorrow morning. I'd like to postpone it, but I can't. It's too urgent . It's about getting approval for the Patagonia project, and we're supposed to start next week.

David: Geez , Michael, our meeting tomorrow morning is very important. Can you try to come?

Michael: I don't think so. There's too much going on right now . The department head quit without notice , two guys on the team are out sick , and, on top of it all , we're preparing for an audit next week! We just don't have enough people at the moment, and...

David: Wow . You're in trouble .

Michael: No, I can deal with it, but that meeting tomorrow is just... too much. I'm sorry.

David: No, no. You're right. We'll postpone it.

Michael: What about early next week?

Tom: But she's applying for a job in Boston, so maybe...

Kristin: Maybe...?

So. You're on your way to the concert hall?

Tom: Yes. To interview Mick Morrison.

Kristin: Are you driving your car today?

Tom: No, no. I'm taking the bus today. Listen, could you give me directions?

15. Family relationships

Grandmother: I met him for the first time on a winter morning in nineteen fifty...

That was a long time ago , but I remember it very well. I was at the farmers' market . I bought some fruit and vegetables. And lucky for me, I needed some milk, too. At the dairy stand I saw a tall man...

Emma: Was it Grandpa?

Grandmother: Yes.

Christopher: And then what happened ?

Grandmother: I asked for some milk. He said, "Would you like some cheese, also, Miss?" I said "No, thank you." And then he said, "Then, would you like a cup of tea?"

I accepted. We had a cup of tea together and ... two years later we got married .

Emma: Did he work at the university like Dad?

Grandmother: No, no. He was a farmer . I mean, father was a dairy farmer , and he sold the milk at the market. They had a big farm with a lot of cows .

Emma: And horses ?

Grandmother: No horses, but they had some chickens .

Christopher: Do you miss grandfather?

Grandmother: Yes, Very much.

Emma: I want a cup of tea, too, Grandma!

Grandmother: No, children don't drink tea. Would you like a cup of hot cocoa?

Emma: Cocoa? OK!

Grandmother: Would you like some hot cocoa, Christopher?

Christopher: Yes, please, Grandma.

Grandmother: All right, hot cocoa then.

Emma: Who's that?

Christopher: That's Aunt Katie!

Emma: And that's Uncle Jack!

Grandmother: Yes, that's Aunt Katie. She's eating a big dish of ice cream...

But that's not Uncle Jack. That's your father.

Christopher: Daddy ! He's eating a piece of cake!

Emma: I want a piece of cake, too!

Kristin: Who would like a kiss good-bye from Mom and Dad?
