Narrator: The ghost was getting closer. Crane’s only hope was to
get to the bridge. Would he make it before the Headless Horseman
caught him?
Ichabod Crane: I must make it to the bridge!
Narrator: Crane began to cross the bridge, but the ghost followed
him onto the bridge. Crane heard the ghost’s horse stop. He turned
to look. A ball of fire was coming right at him!
Ichabod Crane: Aaaahhhhhhh!!!

An Adaptation of The Legend
of Sleepy Hollow, Episode 2,
Part 1
Narrator: That autumn, the Van Tassels gave a big dance.
Village woman1: Mr Crane, you are brave to come here this
Ichabod Crane: Why’s that?
Village woman 1: On your way home you may meet the Headless
Ichabod Crane: Oh! I forgot about that.
Brom: You don’t believe in ghosts, do you Mr Crane?
Ichabod Crane: Oh yes, I mean no, I mean, er…
Narrator: Later, Crane saw Katrina alone and decided to ask her to
marry him. He was not happy with the answer.
Village Woman 1: Where are you going, Mr Crane?
Ichabod Crane: I must go. I don’t feel well.
Narrator: Crane rode into the night. He thought about Katrina…
and he thought about ghosts. Crane saw someone riding next to
Ichabod Crane: Good evening, sir. I am happy to have company
on this dark night.
Narrator: Crane looked closely. The stranger had no head. He was
carrying it in his arms!
Ichabod Crane: Ahhhhh, the Headless Horseman!
Narrator: Crane made his horse run as fast as it could. He looked
behind him and saw the Headless Horseman riding after him.
Ichabod Crane: Go faster, you stupid horse. Faster!
Track 2
Adaptation of The Legend of
Sleepy Hollow, Episode 2, Part 2
Narrator: Crane didn’t go home that night. The next morning the
villagers found a burned pumpkin on the bridge and Crane’s hat.
Mr Van Tassel told Brom about what was found on the bridge.
Brom: Oh, it is such a strange thing to find a pumpkin on the
bridge. I feel sorry for Mr Crane, though.
Narrator: The men from the village looked everywhere, but nobody
saw Crane again. The next Sunday at the Van Tassel dinner table, all
the ladies talked about Crane.
Village Woman 1: I wonder what happened to poor Mr Crane.
And why he left the party so early?
Katrina: Well, I might know why.
Village Woman 1: Tell us, dear. Tell us!
Village Woman 2: Yes, tell us!
Katrina: All right… It happened like this…
Narrator: The night of the party, Crane was waiting for his chance
Girl: But I thought your birthday was on the 6th of May.
Neil: Yeah it is, but that’s a Monday so I’m having my party on the
Friday before. I wanted to have the party on Saturday the fourth,
but it’s my cousin’s birthday and she’s having a party that night!
to ask Katrina to marry him. When he saw her go into the kitchen
alone, he went to her.
Ichabod Crane: Katrina, we have become very close since I came
to Sleepy Hollow.
Katrina: Oh yes, Mr Crane, very close.
Ichabod Crane: Call me Ichabod.
Katrina: Oh…
Ichabod Crane: Katrina, I am a bit older than you, but I think you
can see that I am the most clever man in the village, and… well,
I would like you to marry me.
Katrina: No, Mr Crane, I mean Ichabod. I will not.
Ichabod Crane: No? But why my dear? I thought we were so
Katrina: We are close Mr – Ichabod, but not in that way. I think of
you as a sister.
Ichabod Crane: You mean brother.
Katrina: No. Sister.
Ichabod Crane: Sister?
Katrina: Yes. An older sister.
Ichabod Crane: An older… sister?
Katrina: Yes, that’s right. I love the way you sit with all the women,
and how clever your conversation is. I feel like you are the older
sister I never had.
Ichabod Crane: Oh, I see.
Katrina: I am sorry, Mr Crane.
Ichabod Crane: Excuse me, I must be going.
Katrina: And then he left the kitchen and that is the last I saw of
Village Woman 1: Oh, the poor dear. How funny he should ask
you to marry him.
Katrina: Yes, I thought everyone knew my heart belongs to Brom.
I could never marry a man who cannot run a farm.
Village Woman 2: So he had his heart broken, and then was
taken to hell by the Headless Horseman. Poor Mr Crane.
Village Woman 1: Brom, why are you smiling?
Brom: It’s nothing. I just thought of something funny.
Narrator: The end of the story.
3 How much is a bottle of water?
Boy: Can I have this bar of chocolate and two bottles of water,
Woman: Of course. That’s two pounds, please.
Boy: Oh, right. How much is the water?
Woman: The bottles are fifty pence each, so it’s a pound for two.
4 Where did the girl go cycling?
Girl: I went for a bike ride at the weekend.
Boy: Oh, did you go on the forest path again?
Girl: I wanted to, but I didn’t have enough time, so I went to the
park instead.
Boy: Cool. I know – let’s both go for a bike ride by the river next
5 What does the girl want to drink?
Boy: Hello. Could I have a small cola and a large lemonade for my
friend, please?
Girl: Actually, I’d like a small lemonade, please.
Boy: Oh, I thought you were really thirsty.
Girl: I am, but I can’t drink a big one. It’s too much.
This is the end of Part One.
Track 4
Now look at Part Two.
Listen to Katie talking to a friend about school subjects. Which
subject does each of her friends like the most? For questions
6–10, write a letter A–H next to each person.
You will hear the conversation twice.
Brad: Hi Katie. What lesson have you got now?
Katie: I’ve got geography but I wish I had art; that’s my favourite
subject. I started a really cool painting yesterday and I can’t wait
to finish it.
Brad: Oh, that sounds good. Do you do art with Sadie? She loves
art, doesn’t she?
Katie: Yes, but she prefers doing something more sporty like
gymnastics or playing tennis. Do you like sport as much as her,
Brad: It’s OK. My favourite subject is English, though, because
I love reading. Dave and I always borrow books from each other.
Katie: Oh, I didn’t know Dave’s favourite subject was English.
Brad: It isn’t. He likes reading stories, but he likes doing
experiments more, so he prefers science.
Katie: I think Tom’s in Dave’s science class, but he hates it! He likes
history quite a lot, but maths is his favourite subject.
Brad: Really? Lucy likes maths too, I think.
Katie: Hmm, yeah, I think so, and she likes French too but
geography is definitely her favourite subject!
This is the end of Part Two.
Track 3
You will hear five short conversations. You will hear each
conversation twice. There is one question for each conversation.
For each question, choose the right answer, A, B or C. Here is an
Which is the boy’s brother?
Girl: Is that your brother over there? The one with the curly hair?
Boy: No, that’s Eric, my brother’s best friend. Can you see the boy
wearing glasses next to him?
Girl: Oh, the tall one?
Boy: Yes, that’s him. And the other one, the boy wearing the
baseball cap, is my cousin James.
The answer is A. Now we are ready to start. Look at question 1.
1 Where does Sarah live?
Boy: Where do you live, Sarah?
Sarah: I live in a small house right next to a baker’s. It’s great
because the cinema’s just across the road.
Boy: That’s cool. I live on the other side of town, so I have to get
the bus to go to the cinema. There’s a swimming pool next to
my house, though.
Sarah: Lucky you! I love going swimming.
2 When is Neil’s birthday?
Girl: Are you having a birthday party this year, Neil?
Neil: Yes, I am! On Friday the 3rd of May.

will hear the conversation twice. Look at questions
You will hear a woman talking about a new radio show for
children. Listen and complete each question. You will hear the
information twice.
11–15 now. You have twenty seconds. Now listen to the
Woman: Is radio boring? Do radio stations play too many old
songs? Well, that’s about to change! A new radio show is starting
this Tuesday, and it’s just for kids! Cool Kids is the name, and you
can listen to it every evening from seven until nine o’clock. There’ll
be music from all over the world, games and even stories. Kids can
call in to the show and ask for songs they like. Every Friday there
will be music competitions, and listeners can win prizes like CDs,
concert tickets and MP3 players. You can even win a chance to
meet your favourite pop star! Our young DJs Charlie and Sam will
be talking about their favourite bands, concerts and new music
and of course, playing some really cool songs. The boys, who are
only fifteen, just love music. Why don’t you give them a call with
your music questions? The number is 0753 948 612, and you
could be on the radio, too! I’ll just give you that number one more
time. That’s 0753 948 612.
This is the end of Part Five. This is the end of the test.
Natalie: Hi, James. Do you want to go for a bike ride on Saturday?
James: Sounds great, Natalie. I have to go shopping in town with
my mum first though. What time are you going?
Natalie: I’ve got a piano lesson until twelve, and I’m meeting Sally
at her house at one, so we can meet you in the park about half one.
James: OK, I’ll see you at half one in the park.
Natalie: We’re going to make a picnic, too. Sally’s going to make
sandwiches and I’ll bring the drinks.
James: I’ll bring some crisps then. Is anyone else from school
Natalie: Well, Katie said she was busy, and Mike’s going camping
with his family this weekend, but Tim will be there. I’ll call him
and tell him to meet us there.
James: OK. I hope the weather will be good.
Natalie: It’s going to be cloudy in the morning, but sunny at
lunchtime. I don’t mind as long as it doesn’t rain!
James: I really hope it doesn’t rain because I’m having a barbecue
with my parents later that afternoon. I’ll have to leave at about
four o’clock to get home in time.
Natalie: That’s OK. I’m going to a birthday party in the afternoon
anyway and Tim has to look after his brother, so we’ll have to
leave at about half past three.
This is the end of Part Three.
Track 8
Wales Fun Facts
Wales is a country of singers and is known as the “the land of
song”. There are lots of male choirs, and solo artists, including
Tom Jones and Shirley Bassey as well as the rock group the Manic
Street Preachers.
There are ten million sheep in Wales, outnumbering people 3 to 1.
Track 6
Although football is the most popular sport in Northern Wales,
rugby union is seen as the national sport and is played and
followed by most of the country.
Now look at Part Four.
The original national symbol for Wales was the leek or cenhinen in
Welsh. Over the years this got confused with a very similar Welsh
plant, cehhinen bedr, which means daffodil, and so the daffodil
was adopted as the second symbol of the country. The patron
saint of Wales is St David.
You will hear a boy, Kevin, talking about a karate class he
goes to. Listen and complete each question. You will hear the
conversation twice.
Alice: What are you doing tomorrow, Kevin?
Kevin: I’ve got my karate class in the evening.
Alice: Oh, cool. I didn’t know you did karate.
Kevin: Yeah, I go to the class every Thursday evening, Alice.
Alice: What time does it start?
Kevin: Well, I usually get there at about half past five, but we start
at six o’clock.
Alice: Oh, right. Where is the class?
Kevin: At the sports hall. You know, next to the gym on Castle
Alice: And how much does it cost?
Kevin: The first lesson is five pounds, but after that they’re only
four pounds.
Alice: Cool. I’d like to try karate. Is the teacher good?
Kevin: Yeah. There used to be a male teacher whose name was
Frank, but now a woman called Katy does it.
Alice: Cathy?
Kevin: No, not Cathy… Katy – K-A-T-Y. So – why don’t you come
with me next Thursday?
Alice: Great! Do I need to book?
Kevin: Yeah. You can call the teacher on 07304 253 409 in
the evening after seven o’clock, but you have to call before
Wednesday to book a place.
Alice: Cool, thanks!
This is the end of Part Four.
Wales has three national parks, Snowdonia,the Brecon Beacons and
the Pembrokeshire Coast. In these parks you can see mountains,
forests, sandy beaches, caves and cliffs. In Snowdonia you can find
Mount Snowdon, the UK’s second highest mountain at 1,085m.
If you visit Wales, make sure you take an umbrella. The country
gets a lot of rain – in one village called Eglwyswrw it rained every
day for 85 days! “Bore Da” means good morning and “Diolch” is the
Welsh word for thank you.
Track 9
Festivals in Washington D.C.
The district is known for its warm weather, so the city has many
of its traditional events outside. Here are some of the city’s best
The H Street Festival – The H Street Festival celebrates the
exciting neighborhood around H Street, one of the longest streets
in the city. The festival has the neighborhood’s best food, shops,
and music. There are also some great contests, like a bad tattoo
contest. This competition searches for the visitor with the worst
The National Cherry Blossom Festival – The Cherry Blossom
Festival is celebrated each spring when these beautiful trees

and they have been one of the city’s loveliest sights ever since.
The festival takes place along the Potomac River, and thousands
of people attend each year. There are parades, music and theatre
performances by American and Japanese artists.
Track 11
The Scariest Night of My Life
When I was 12 my mum didn’t want me and my sisters to go trick or
treating at Halloween. “It’s an American tradition, not English,” she
would say. “It’s not nice to go to people’s houses and tell them you
will do something bad to them if they don’t give you something.”
The Easter Egg Roll – Getting a tour of the White House can be
very difficult, so many Washingtonians attend the White House
Easter Egg Roll to get inside the president’s residence. People who
attend this annual Easter event can take part in activities with the
President and the First Lady.
“Please, Mum!” we begged. “Please, please, please! We’ll be
careful.“ Finally she said, “Fine. But only in our street.”
We were so happy about it. My two sisters both dressed as
witches; I was a mummy. We ran to our neighbour’s house and
knocked on the door. “Trick or treat!” we shouted.
We visited lots of neighbours, who all pretended to be very afraid
of us. Our bags were soon very full. We were very good at trick
or treating. Then everything changed. I heard my youngest sister
give a terrible scream and start running: “A monster!”
I looked behind me and I saw it: a monster. A real monster
running right at me. It had wild eyes, four short legs and a big
head with a horrible red mouth full of teeth and drool. It was
getting closer and closer.
We ran quickly back home, knocking hard on the door. My mum
opened it and we flew inside. Unfortunately, so did the monster.
It chased us in circles around the living room. We jumped on
the sofa. The monster jumped on the sofa. We ran upstairs. The
monster ran upstairs, barking (barking?). Finally, my mum, with
superhuman strength, took the monster by its collar (collar?) and
threw it out of the front door. From behind the window we looked
out at the monster. It was our neighbour’s bulldog.
We never went trick or treating again.

Zombie Dialogue
Tom: Braaaaains… Braaaaains… Braaaains! I need more brains!
Joanna: (worried) What? Tom. Tom. Are you OK?
Tom: Yeah. We have a maths test today and I need some more
brains – I don’t understand it at all.
Joanna: I thought you were a zombie. I thought the zombie
apocalypse had really started.
Tom: Well Joanna, if there were a zombie apocalypse at least
I wouldn’t have to do this stupid test.
Joanna: Don’t joke about it. It could really happen, we should be
Tom: Prepared for zombies?
Joanna: You never know. Even the American government says
that we should be ready.
Tom: And how exactly should we prepare ourselves for the
zombie apocalypse?
Joanna: That’s a very good question. We should make an
emergency kit.
Tom: And what is an emergency kit?
Joanna: It’s a kit with all the things we would need to stay
alive: food, water, clothes, something to make fire with and
a first aid kit. Also weapons for killing zombies.
Tom: And how do you kill a zombie?
Joanna: Simple. You have to destroy its brain.
Tom: Oh, I see. Simple
Joanna: Yep. So maybe a baseball bat would be a good weapon.
Tom: Sure. Excellent.
Joanna: We should also think about escape routes. If zombies
attacked our house, how would we get out? Where would we
Tom: Erm, OK… wait! I know just the place: the school, there
would be no zombies there.
Joanna: Why not?
Tom: Because zombies like eating brains, right? There would be
nothing for them to eat at our school. There are no brains there
at all.
Joanna: Oh, ha ha. Very funny. Speak for yourself Tom, and good
luck with the test today.
Tom: ooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Track 12
Urban Legend from Tennessee:
The Ending
A crazy man had escaped from his cell in the asylum. Running
through the night, he came to a river and saw three people by
a car on the bridge. Without thought, he ran across the heavy
wooden beams, grabbed the first woman, and threw her off the
bridge into the river. Then the second, then the third. Then he ran
off into the night.
Today the bridge is cursed. People say if you go there at night,
you can still hear the nuns’ screams as they fall into the river.
cell – cela, beam – trám, cursed – prokletý

In A Restaurant
Waiter: Good evening. Can I help you?
Ben (BrE): Hi, do you have a table for two free?
Waiter: Do you want a table? Or a booth?
Ann (AmE): A booth, please.
Waiter: Here you are. And here are the menus. Our special tonight
is baked trout.
Ben/Ann: Thanks.
Waiter: I’ll be back in a minute to take your order.

Quit playing games
And put your arms around me
You know what to do

Ann: Well, what did you think of your trout?
Ben: It was OK, but a little overdone. And your salad?
Ann: It was really fresh, and the dressing was tasty. I’m satisfied.
Ben: OK, then, I’ll give him a normal tip.
Waiter: Was everything all right?
Ben: OK, thank you. Can we have the bill, please?
Waiter: Of course. Will that be cash or credit card?
Ben: Cash. Here you are.
