Life as a student is all about sitting through endless boring lectures, working all night to meet essay deadlines and of course scraping bv on your meagre student loan, right? Well, sometimes, but it can also be a lot of fun 11 We asked some first year students to give us the low-down on student life in the UK!
Matthew Springer, University of Leeds (B.A. History and Political Science):
"One of the best things about the first year is 'Freshers' Week' . You hardly sleep all week - there are so many parties, concerts and other events! And then there's the 'Clubs & Societies Bazaar' where you get the chance to join any kind of club or society you can imagine. It's difficult not to get carried away -1 signed up for the university newspaper, and the drama and canoeing clubs!"
Sylvie Leg range, Swansea University, Wales (B.Sc. Biological Sciences):
"I'm an overseas student from France. In my country, a lot of students live at home while studying, but here almost everyone goes to university in another town. This year, I got a place in halls with most of the other first year students. It's so much fun hanging out in each other's rooms, drinking tea and ordering pizza at two o'clock in the morning! Next year, I'm going to rent a student house just off campus with four of my friends."
Sarah Miles, Keble College, Oxford (B.A. English and Modern Languages)
"I only have about ten hours of formal lectures every week, but I have to spend quite a few hours in the library doing research for essays. I also have to prepare for seminars, which are smaller interactive classes, and a weekly tutorial, which is basically a one-on-one discussion with my tutor . Oxford is a lot more traditional than most other UK universities. We still have to wear a black academic gown when we do exams and when we attend formal dinners in the college dining hall!"
Steven Howard, University of Bradford (B.A. Media Studies)
"University is hard work and I'm always skint but the social life is stormin'l My favourite hang-out is the Student Union . There's always something going on there, like a big band playing or some kind of special theme night. After a big night out, my mates and I always stop off for a kebab or a curry on the way home!"
1 week of events/activities to welcome first year students 2 halls of residence = shared university accommodation 3 university teacher 4 building on campus with facilities for social and organisational activities
Student talk: our mini-guide
hole-in-the-wall = ATM
rank = awful
sorted = under control
stormin', kickin', slammin' = exciting
skint = to have no money
mate = friend
2 RNE Read again. Which student(s) mention(s):
1 getting involved in organised activities?
2 a nighttime snack?
3 a special dress code?
5 lack of money?
3 Match the underlined words with their meanings: involving only two people, loose formal robe, be over-enthusiastic, managing to live with very little money, happening, allowing communication, very small.
4 List all words related to university from the text in Ex. 1 under the headings:
• places • lessons • accommodation • teachers • after-school activities
Imagine you are studying at Oxford University. Use the words to talk about university life.
5 Portfolio: Think of the most prestigious university in your country. Write a short article about it. Include: where students live, academic life, social life ets.
1 Read the equation above. How can small actions change the world?
2 Read the case study below to find out what Jacob does. Why does he do it? What does he feel that he achieves?
"I volunteer at a retirement home for a few hours each week. All I do is sit and chat with people for a while, read to them, tell them some jokes, but they really seem to look forward to my visits. I get a lot back, too. It makes me feel really great to know that I'm giving something and to see people's faces light up when I arrive. The elderly are wise. On more than one occasion they've given me advice that I just know I wouldn't have got anywhere else. I think volunteering in the community is one of the many things you can do to make the world a better place."
b Read the case study again and explain the words in bold.
3 Read the suggested actions (1-6) and match them with the reasons (A-F). Suggest two more actions and their corresponding reasons. Compare your ideas with your partner.
1 Learn basic first aid.
2 Spend time with people from different generations.
3 Become a community or international volunteer.
4 Buy Fair Trade products.
5 Throw your rubbish in the bin.
6 Give your spare change to charity and pay more when you buy things at charity shops.
A Both you and the peopl you help will feel great.
B It could save someone's lif
C Even a small purchase can help and charity shops give all the money they make to people in need.
D Rubbish on the streets is ugly and costs millions to clean up.
E It will cheer you/others up and change the way you/they behave.
F Producers get fair prices f( their goods and their livins working conditions improvi
4 THINK! Consider the list of actions again. Which would you: definitely do? definitely/probably not do? possibly do? Discuss your answers in small groups, giving reasons.
> A: I would definitely like to learn first aid.
B: Yeah. Me too. I think it would be useful. I'd possibly become
a community volunteer and help others feel well.
C: That's a nice idea but I would probably not become a community
volunteer, because I'm not good at socialising.
5 THINK! Portfolio: Work in groups. Use the ideas from Ex. 3 to help you think of another project that, if a lot of people took part, could really change the world e.g. planting one tree each. Think about the following:
1 What exactly would you do?
2 Who else would you get involved & how?
Write a paragraph about your idea, then present it to the class. The class votes for the best idea change the world.
Dian Fossey loved animals, trained as an occupational therapist and worked miracles with disabled children.| 1 | | After reading some books by George Schalles she decided to save up and go to Africa for 6 weeks to see the wildlife. When she first saw some mountain gorillas she became fascinated with them and began watching and recording their behaviour. She went home, studied to become a zoologist, and then returned to Africa to spend the rest of her life studying mountain gorillas.
| 2 | | One day, a young male gorilla she named Peanuts, came over and touched her hand. After some time, Dian earned their trust and was able to sit with the gorillas and play with them and their babies.
Dian's favourite gorilla was a young male named Digit. | 3 | | The poachers were locals making money from selling the hands, heads and feet of the gorillas. They sold their heads as wall decorations, and hands and feet as ashtrays. Several other gorillas met the same fate. Dian declared war on the poachers. Unfortunately, she was so outspoken that she became a target for violence.
On December 26th, 1985, she was found murdered in her cabin. She was buried in the cemetery next to her beloved gorillas. She was 53 years old. | 4 | |
What happened to Dian's beloved gorillas is what can happen to all animals whose parts are used to make souvenirs. So, be aware and never bring back any exotic gifts along with your beautiful memories. Buying souvenirs made from ivory, animal skins, teeth, bones, coral or turtle shells endangers animals and keeps poachers in business. Don't help drive innocent animals to extinction.
1 Close your eyes. Listen to the sounds. Where do you think you are? What is happening? How do you feel?
2 Describe the pictures. How do you think this woman made a difference to our world? Read the sentences A-E below and try to guess her story.
A Her killer, probably a poacher, was never found.
B Tragically, on New Year's Day, 1978, Dian found he had been killed by poachers.
C She didn't have any children herself.
D However, she had always had a desire to see more of the world.
E Over time, Dian came to know the gorillas as individuals and gave them all names.
3 RNE Read the article and put the sentences A-E in the right place to complete the text. There is one extra sentence you do not need to use. Explain the words/ phrases in bold.
4 THINK! Listen and read the text again. Which of these adjectives best describe Dian?
Tell your partner. Give reasons, sensitive, dishonest, caring, patient, nervous, determined.
> I think Dian was a very sensitive person because she worried a lot about the fate of animals.
5 Project: In groups collect information about Dian Fossey or another environmentalist. Present it to the class.
Fill in the gaps (1-6) with the phrases (A-G). There is one phrase that you do not need to use.
A McJob? What on earth is that? Well, according to a recently- added dictionary entry, a McJob is a low-paying job that requires little skill and provides little opportunity for advancement.
You dream of a job like this, right? A monotonous, tedious job | 1 | |? No? Then, why are thousands of educated young people spending hours each day folding jumpers, grilling burgers, serving cappuccinos and unpacking boxes of books?
Katie Underwood, a twenty-three-year-old university student, has had around twenty jobs just like this. She has worked night-shifts, has been told she can't have a break or a day off | 2 | |.
Fast food adverts and movies may make us think that these jobs are held by pink-cheeked, trendy teens | 3 | |, but in actual fact, most people in these jobs are in their late teens and twenties.
Like Katie, these youngsters are juggling these part-time jobs and university classes | 4 | |.
So, how sorry for yourself should you feel if you have to take a McJob? Well, perhaps you're actually one of the lucky ones! First of all, some well-known former McDonald's workers include Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com and Carl Lewis, Olympic gold medallist, and according to a recent article, around 20 of the 50 top worldwide managers began by grilling burgers! Secondly, most young people who take these jobs have little or no previous work experience. Learning how to get to work on time, operate a machine, count change, serve customers politely, co-operate with fellow workers and accept orders from a boss are skills | 5 | |.
So, a McJob might be boring, tiring and badly-paid, | 6 | |. Undoubtedly, it will also make you appreciate just how lucky you are when you finally get your dream job!
A so that they can pay for skyrocketing tuition fees and living expenses
B which can give you valuable experience and maturity before you enter your chosen
C career who have worked in factories, shoe shops, restaurants, bars and museums
D who are just looking for a bit of extra spending money
E but it can help prepare you better for the harsh world of work
F that involves washing dishes, delivering parcels or asking "Would you like fries with that?"
G and has usually been paid no more than the minimum wage
Listen to speakers 1-5. Which of the comments below might each speaker say? There is one comment you don't need to use.
A I realised what I wanted to do at a particular moment.
B I want to do something that lets me see lots of different places.
C I want to be my own boss.
D I want to do something to fight unfairness in the world.
E I want to work for an environmental organisation.
F It's difficult to earn enough money doing what I love.
