[00:-3.00]A PRACTICAL JOKE
[00:-4.00]We can define1 a joke as something you say that causes laughter,
[00:-5.00]and a practical joke as something you do that causes laughter.
[00:-6.00]After a practical joke everybody laughs or smiles,except,
[00:-7.00]usually,the victim of the joke:for practical jokes must be played on someone.
[00:-8.00]They need a victim who is made to look silly or embarrassed.
[00:-9.00]In Richard Boston's Book of Practical Jokes,
[00:10.00]the writer tells the story of a practical joke played on a Mr Potts
[00:11.00]who worked in a newspaper office.
[00:12.00]Mr Potts was not popular with his colleagues
[00:13.00]mainly because he regarded them as his inferiors,
[00:14.00]so his colleagues decided2 to play a joke on him
[00:15.00]that might make him feel more humble3.
[00:16.00]Now it so happened that Mr Potts wore the same hat to work.
[00:17.00]It was a rather unpleasant looking green colour.
[00:18.00]When he arrived at the office every morning at exactly ten o'clock,
[00:19.00]he would say,'Good morning ',hang the hat on a peg4 and proceed to his desk
[00:20.00]When he left in the afternoon he reversed5 the process.
[00:21.00]He took his hat from the peg.
[00:22.00]Placed it on his head,said 'Good afternoon',and went home.
[00:23.00]One day,when he was out of the room.
[00:24.00]His colleagues examined the hat very carefully
[00:25.00]Then they went to one of the shops in the area
[00:26.00]and bought a hat exactly like it but quite a big large.
[00:27.00]They returned to the office.Mr Potts was still out.
[00:28.00]So they exchanged the new hat for the old one.
[00:29.00]At the end of the afternoon,Mr Potts said goodbye as usual.
[00:30.00]When he put his hat on his head,however,it dropped down over his eyes.
[00:31.00]After he left the office,everyone had a good laugh.
[00:32.00]The next day ,to every one surprise,
[00:33.00]Mr Potts appeared with the hat in its normal position
[00:34.00]His colleagues were puzzled by this and while Mr Potts was out,
[00:35.00]studied the hat carefully.
[00:36.00]They found that Mr Potts had fixed6 some pieces of newspaper round inside of the hat to reduce its diameter and make it smaller
[00:37.00]Then the next day they decided to take Mr Potts's old hat from their cupboard where they had hidden it
[00:38.00]They made it smaller in the same way and replaced the new hat with the old one.
[00:39.00]At the end of the day,Mr Potts said,'Good afternoon',as usual.
[00:40.00]When he put his hat on this time.However,it stuck right on top of his head.
[00:41.00]Again,everyone had a good laugh when he left the office.
[00:42.00]Mr Potts's colleagues changed the hats every day.
[00:43.00]The result was that he wore the big hat one day and the small one another day.
[00:44.00]In the end,Mr Potts went to his doctor and complained that ...
[00:45.00]'Nonsense', said the doctor.'There is no such disease.'
[00:46.00]page 42
[00:47.00]Recognizing Wh questions
[00:48.00]Listen to the questions,and write short answers about this films.
[00:49.00]1 A What is the name of the film?
[00:50.00]B When is the last show?
[00:51.00]C Who is the star of this film?
[00:52.00]D Where can you see this film?
[00:53.00]2 A How many shows are there today?
[00:54.00]B When is the first show?
[00:55.00]C What is the name of the cinema?
[00:56.00]D Who's in this film?
[00:57.00]3 A When is the last show?
[00:58.00]B Which cinemas are showing this film?
[00:59.00]C What's the name of the film?

[-1:-3.00]C Where is this film on?
[-1:-4.00]D How many shows are there today?
[-1:-5.00]5 General questions:A How many cinemas are in this advertisement all together?
[-1:-6.00]B Which film is being shown for the first time today?
[-1:-7.00]C Who is the male star in the film,the Taxi Driver?
[-1:-8.00]D When is the latest show of all the four films?
[-1:-9.00]SPEAKING
[-1:10.00]page 49 [-1:11.00]A Using phonetic7 symbols
[-1:12.00]English letters do not always have the same sound.
[-1:13.00]For example:The letter 'c' is different in 'cat' and'cent'.
[-1:14.00]The letter 't' is different in 'ten'and 'nation'.
[-1:15.00]The letter 'a' is different in 'gas'and 'glass'.
[-1:16.00]The letters 'ch' are different in 'church'and 'chemistry'.
[-1:17.00]So we sometimes use phonetic symbols when we are talking about sounds.
[-1:18.00]Phonetic symbols always have the same sound.
[-1:19.00]For example:The symbol /k/ is the sound at the beginning of 'cat',
[-1:20.00]'kick' and'chemistry'.
[-1:21.00]The symbol /sh/?is the'sh' sound in all of these words:
[-1:22.00]sheep,nation,machine,special ocean,Asia and sugar.
