[00:-1.00]READING
[00:-2.00]Page 93
[00:-3.00]VIRTUAL REALITY
[00:-4.00]Ever since I was a little girl,I have wanted to fly like a bird.
[00:-5.00]I'd love to glide1 over the harbour,looking down on the ships below,
[00:-6.00]or fly in and out of the buildings in the centre of our city.
[00:-7.00]I have other dreams,too.I'd like to walk around on the moon.
[00:-8.00]I'd like to go back in time and meet Marco Polo.
[00:-9.00]I'd also like to win the gold medal in the marathon at the Olympic Games.
[00:10.00]Soon all of these dreams will come true thanks to the magic of Virtual Reality.
[00:11.00]What is Virtual,or VR?It's a computer system with a special headset.
[00:12.00]When you put on the headset,you look at two tiny television screens.
[00:13.00]They are so close to your eyes that your mind will see the image as one picture
[00:14.00]When you play a game in a video arcade2 today,
[00:15.00]you just sit and watch an imaginary world.
[00:16.00]But,in the future,when you play a VR game,
[00:17.00]you will be right inside that world.
[00:18.00]If you turn your head,you will see a different view of the world,
[00:19.00]just as in real life.
[00:20.00]In some systems,you also wear a special'data glove'on  one hand.
[00:21.00]With this glove you can reach out and touch things in the artificial world.
[00:22.00]It is an amazing experience.
[00:23.00]Before long,Virtual Reality is going to be part of all our lives.
[00:24.00]The first VR games are now being introduced into video arcades3 around the world
[00:25.00]These enable you to drive a sports car,fly a plane,or fight an enemy.
[00:26.00]They are similar to present arcade games but much more realistic.
[00:27.00]They are just the beginning.
[00:28.00]As the technology develops,the games will become more and more amazing.
[00:29.00]Within a few years,you will be able to go into a complete fantasy world
[00:30.00]and have the most exciting adventures you could imagine.
[00:31.00]However,VR is not just for entertainment.
[00:32.00]One day,
[00:33.00]children will learn geography by observing foreign countries without leaving their classroom
[00:34.00]They will learn history by visiting the pyramids of Egypt,
[00:35.00]or by hand feeding friendly dinosaurs,
[00:36.00]all in the security of VR.
[00:37.00]In addition,business and industry will be using VR for many tasks.
[00:38.00]Cars will be designed and tested as 'virtual'machines first,
[00:39.00]before they are manufactured in metal.
[00:40.00]Architects will be able to build'virtual' buildings
[00:41.00]which they can walk around and inspect,before building them.
[00:42.00]VR can help us in hundreds of ways.
[00:43.00]Despite this,some people have suggested
[00:44.00]that there are dangers in this powerful new medium.
[00:45.00]Will we have VR games in which we can commit 'virtual'murders?
[00:46.00]After people get used to VR,they will not want to return to reality.
[00:47.00]Will we all forget how to live and work with real people?
[00:48.00]On the other hand,some people think that VR will help to save the world
[00:49.00]By experimenting harmlessly inside a VR world,
[00:50.00]we will be able to see the dangers which may face the world.
[00:51.00]Then we will be able to avoid them in real life.
[00:52.00]No doubt there will be some problems with VR ,
[00:53.00]as there are with all new inventions.
[00:54.00]But one thing is for sure.VR in here to stay.
[00:55.00]And I'm certainly going to enjoy flying around the world!
[00:56.00]INTEGRATED SKILLS
[00:57.00]Page 97
[00:58.00]Using statistics
[00:59.00]Exercise A
[-1:00.00]Listen and complete the answers to questions 1 to 3.
[-1:-1.00]A:Mary,can you help me,please?
[-1:-2.00]B:OK,Gezen.What do you want me to do?
[-1:-3.00]A:Just help me with these figures.
[-1:-4.00]I'm trying to complete these tables,to show the results of our survey.
[-1:-5.00]Here,just read out these figures.
[-1:-6.00]B:Right,so No.1, these are about leisure activities.
[-1:-7.00]The number students who choose reading books was nine.
[-1:-8.00]The number for playing a musical instrument is just six. [-1:-9.00]That's not many,is it?And the number for playing a sport was 35,wow?
[-1:10.00]A:Yes,that was the most popular.
[-1:11.00]B:I thought video games would be most popular.
[-1:12.00]A:No,a lot of people still prefer sports.
[-1:13.00]Anyway go on with the results.
[-1:14.00]B:Then watching TV,videos or films,28 people,and playing video games,22 people
[-1:15.00] A:Right,so that came third,and the one above it was second.
[-1:16.00]Books were fourth,and musical instruments, fifth.Now,let's do No.2
[-1:17.00]B:You mean these bar chart?
[-1:18.00]A:Yes,I've drawn4 the boxes,but I want to write the numbers after the boxes
[-1:19.00]B:OK!So the people who play more than three hours a day Boys:9,and girls:3[-1:20.00]Then the next line,people playing between 2 and 3 hours a day,
[-1:21.00]24 boys and 14 girls.
[-1:22.00]A:Right,and the next line?
[-1:23.00]B:48 boys and 35 girls.
[-1:24.00]And then the last one,people who play between 0 and 1 hour a day,
[-1:25.00]19 boys and 47 girls
[-1:26.00]So this shows that girls are much less interested in video games than boys
[-1:27.00]A:Yes,you are right. Now,there's just number 3 the pie chart.
[-1:28.00]This is interesting.
[-1:29.00]We wondered whether people are actually spending
[-1:30.00]more or less time playing video games than they did one year ago.
[-1:31.00]B:So here are the results,let's see.
[-1:32.00]18% of the people said they spent more time playing games
[-1:33.00]35% of the people said they spent about the same time,
[-1:34.00]and...A:Wait a minute,that's 35% and I write,about the same.
[-1:35.00]B:Yes,and 47% said less time.
[-1:36.00]A:47%,less time. Right,that's all. Thanks for your help.
[-1:37.00]B:You're welcome.
