The Goose with the Golden Eggs

Well, here is the story. One day countryman was going to the nest of his goose and found
there was an egg all yellow and glittering. When he took it up, it was as heavy as lead and
he was going to throw it away, because he thought a trick had been played upon him. But
he took it home on a second thought and soon found to his delight that it was an egg of
pure gold. Every morning the same thing occurred and he soon became rich by selling its
eggs. As he grew rich he grew greedy and thought to get at once all the gold the goose
could give. He killed the goose and opened it: only to find nothing.

Friend : No, you eat it; let me rest.

Lover : Oh, come on.

Friend : No, let me rest.

Lover : But you are my friend. I will not eat unless you eat with me.

Friend : Very well, I will eat the fish with you, but you must first make me a promise. If I
eat the fish, you must promise, pledge yourself, to fetch me all the water I can

Lover : I promise.

And so the two ate the fish out of their kettle. When they had eaten, the kettle was rinsed
out and the lover brought it back full of water. Greedily, the lovers friend drank the

Friend : Bring me more.

Again, the lover filled the kettle at the river and again his friend drank it dry.

Friend : More!!!

Lover : Oh, I am tired. Cannot you go to the river and drank it form the stream?

Friend : Remember your promise?

Lover : Yes, but I am weary. Go now and drink.

And so the lovers friend walked sadly to the river, sprang in, and lying down in the water
with her head toward land, drank greedily. By and by she called out to the lover.

Friend : Come hither, you who have been my sworn friend. See what comes of your
broken promise.
The lover came and was amazed to see that his friend was now a fish from her feet to her
middle. Sick at heart he ran off a little away and threw himself upon the ground in grief.
By and by he returned. The lovers friend was now a fish to her neck.

The Dog and the Shadow

Do you like keeping an animal in your house? Okay. Do you know the
reason why people keep a dog in their house? Dont you know that sometimes
a dog can be so greedy that he steals all we have? This is a story about a
greedy dog.
It happened that a dog had got a piece of meat and was carrying it
home in his mouth to eat it in peace. Now on his way home, he had to cross a
plank lying across a running brook. As he crossed, he looked down and saw
his own shadow reflected in the water beneath. Thinking it was another dog
with another piece of meat, he made up his mind to have that also. So, he
made a snap at the shadow in the water, but as he opened his mouth the piece
of meat fell out, dropped into the water and was never seen any more.

Answer the question below

1. what lesson can you learn from this story?
Listen to the story of The Wolf in Sheeps Clothing. While listening, fill in the
blanks with the words you hear. Then, answer the questions.

The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

A wolf found great difficulty in getting at the sheep owing to the vigilance of the
shepherd and his dogs. But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and
thrown aside, so it put it on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep. The
lamb that belonged to the sheep, whose skin the wolf was wearing, began to follow the
wolf in the sheeps clothing; so, leading the lamb a little apart, he soon made a meal of
her, and for some time he succeeded in deceiving the sheep and enjoying hearty meals.

Read and listen to the following story. Pay attention to its structure and the
speakers intonation. Then, answer the questions.

The Faithful Lovers

The following story will be special for each of you who want to know the real
meaning of love.
Hmm, there once lived a chief's daughter who had many admirers. All the young
men in the village wanted to have her for a wife and were all eager to fill her skin bucket
when she went to the brook for water.
There was a young man in the village. He was a good hunter; but he was poor and
had a mean family. He loved the maiden and wished he could marry her. So, one day
when she went for water, he threw his robe over her head while he whispered in her ear:
Will you marry me?
For a long time the maiden acted as if she hadnt heard anything, but one day she
whispered back saying that she would be willing to marry him if he took a scalp.
So he made a war party of seven, himself and six other young men. Before they
started, they sat down to smoke and rest beside a beautiful lake at the foot of a green
knoll that rose from its shore. The knoll was covered with green grass and somehow as
they looked at it they had a feeling that there was something about it that was mysterious
or uncanny.
One of the lovers friends was so curious about it that he ventured into the knoll.
Four of the young men followed. Having reached to the top of the knoll, all five began to
jump and stamp about in sport.
But, suddenly they stopped. The knoll had begun to move toward the water. It was
a gigantic turtle! The five men cried out in alarm and tried to run, but it was too late!
They cried; but the others could do nothing. In just a few moments, the waves had closed
over them.
The other two men: the lover and his friend, went on, but with heavy hearts. After
some days, they came to a river. Worn out with fatigue, the lover threw himself down on
the bank. Fortunately, the lovers friend came up to help him.
The following day, his friend told him that he found a fish which he had cleaned
and asked him to eat the fish together. The lover said that if he ate the fish, his friend had
to promise to fetch him all the water that he could drink. When they had eaten, the kettle
was rinsed out and the lovers friend brought it back with full of water. The lover drank
the water at a draught. Again his friend filled the kettle at the river and again the lover
drank it dry but still asked for more water. The lovers friend then took the lover to the
river. When the lover saw the river, he walked to the river, sprang in, and lying down in
the water with his head toward land, drank greedily.
Then, he called out his friend. The friend came and was amazed to see that the
lover was now a fish from his feet to his middle. Sick at heart, he ran off a little away and
threw himself upon the ground in grief. After a while, he returned to find that the lover
was now a fish up to his neck.
The friend went home and told his story. There was great mourning over the death
of the five young men and for the lost lover. In the river, the lover had become a great
fish and its fin was just above the surface. Canoes had to be portaged at great labor
around the obstruction.
Meanwhile, the chiefs daughter mourned for her lover as for a husband and
nobody could comfort her. Day by day, she sat inside her mothers tepee with her head
covered with her robe, silent, working, and working. Whenever her mother asked, the
maiden did not reply.
The days lengthened into moons until a year had passed. And then the maiden
arose. She left her mothers tepee with holding lots of things in her hands. There were
three pairs of moccasins, three pairs of leggings, three belts, three shirts, three head
dresses with beautiful feathers, and sweet smelling tobacco.
One day she had a new canoe made. Then, the next morning she stepped into the
canoe and floated slowly down the river toward the great fish. Her canoe came and
stopped to the place where the great fin arose. One by one she laid her presents on the
fish's back, scattering the feathers and tobacco over his broad spine.
Oh, fish, she cried, oh, fish, you who were my lover, I shall not forget you..
Because you were lost for love of me, I shall never marry. All my life I shall remain a
widow. Take these presents. And now leave the river, and let the waters run free, so my
people may once more descend in their canoes. Slowly the great fish sank, his broad fin
disappeared, and the waters of the St. Croix (Stillwater) were free.

Work in groups of four. Read and listen to the following story. Pay attention to the
speakers intonation. Then, answer the questions.
Here is a story for you to enjoy. Listen!
Once upon a time there lived as neighbors, a bear and a rabbit. The rabbit was a
good shot and the bear, being very clumsy, could not use an arrow to a good advantage.
The bear was very unkind to the rabbit. Every morning, the bear would call over
to the rabbit and ask the rabbit to take his bow and arrows and come with the bear to the
other side of the hill.
The rabbit, fearing to arouse the bears anger by refusing, consented and went
with the bear. The rabbit shot enough buffalo to satisfy the bears family. Indeed, he shot
and killed so many that there was lots of meat left after the bear and his family had
loaded themselves and packed all they could carry home.
However, the bear was so greedy and evil that he didnt allow the rabbit to get any
of the meat. The poor rabbit could not even taste the blood from the butchering, as the
bear would throw earth on the blood and dry it up. The poor rabbit would have to go
home hungry after his hard days work.
The bear was the father of five children. The youngest boy was very kind to the
rabbit. Knowing that the youngest boy was a very hearty eater, the mother bear always
gave him an extra large piece of meat. Instead of eating this extra meat, the youngest bear
would take the meat outside and pretend to play ball with it, kicking it toward the rabbit's
house, and when he got close to the door he would give the meat such a great kick that it
would fly into the rabbit's house. In this way the poor rabbit would get his meal unknown
to the papa bear.
Unit 2

Getting Started
Read and listen to a text about a pipeline and pay attention to the intonation. Circle
the right action verbs used in the text. Then, fill in the table.

Have you ever heard about a pipeline in computer technology? Guess what. Right.
A pipeline is very close to a computer. But can you tell me what a pipeline is? Well, let
me explain. A pipeline in a computer is a sequence of stages a computer uses to carry out
The CPU makes sure every stage in a pipeline is always operating on an
instruction. As a stage of a pipeline in the CPU finishes manipulating an instruction, it
hands its instruction to the next stage and gets another instruction from the stage before it,
moving several instructions along the pipeline simultaneously. This process is more
efficient than it would be if each instruction had to start at the first stage after the
previous instruction finished the final stage.
Oh, I almost forgot, the more pipelines a CPU has, the faster it can execute
instructions. A CPU with two or more pipelines is said to be a super pipelined or
superscalar. Okay. Have you got it? Not yet. How about going to the library and
searching for more explanations about a pipeline? See you and good luck.

Good morning, students. Hmm, have you ever heard about Cire Perdue or Lost Wax?
Well, let me axplain. Cire Perdue which is the French words for lost waxis a process
of wax casting used in making metal sculptures.
When a model is coated with wax, the solidified wax is encased in a two-layer
mold of plaster or clay. It is then melted or otherwise removed from the mold, and the
metal is poured into the space where the wax had been. Oh, I almost forgot, after cooling,
the mold is broken to free the metal object.
This ancient method is used to produce sculpture, jewelry, and utilitarian
products, such as dentures. Do you understand? Not yet? Okay, how about going to the
library to find more information about Lost Wax? See you and good luck

Making Paper from Woodchips

Do you have any paper in your bag? It may seem like a silly question but do you know
how to make paper? What is paper made of ? Right. And how about wood chipping?
Have you ever heard about it? Well, wood chipping is a process used to obtain pulp and
paper products from forest trees.
First of all, the tops and branches of the trees are cut out and then the logs are
taken to the mill. At the mill, the bark of the logs is removed and the logs are taken to a
chipper which cuts them into small pieces called woodchips. The woodchips are then
screened to remove dirt and other impurities. Hmm, at this stage they are either
exported in this form or changed into the pulp by chemicals and heat. Oh, I almost forgot,
the pulp is then bleached and the water content is removed. Finally, the pulp is rolled out
to make paper.
Considering the complexity of making paper, lets appreciate any paper on our
hands. Use it more effectively. Thank you for listening. Bye.

Well, there are students who are caught up in a computer and they forget about
lunch, their homework, or even want to skip after-school activities.
Andien : Yeah, I heard about that too. Once, I saw a student who was forced to leave the
computer because he was so absorbed in computer games.
Viva : See what I mean? Besides, this problem will become even worse as more
classroom works center around a computer. And one more thing, computers
make the users unsociable.
Andien : Do they? How come?
Viva : The prolonged exposure to computers makes the users lazy to socialize with
other people. They find their world more enjoyable in computers, since they are
inanimate objects. This makes them abusive to other people.
Andien : You know, I cant deny the facts that computers help us a lot in the information
age. I cant imagine what this world would be if there were no computers. How
could I handle so much work in my office? How could the police regulate the
traffic lights without the help of computers? How would we communicate with

Hacking: Pro and Contra?

Do you know what a hacker is? Well, a hacker is a person who enjoys exploring
the details of programmable systems on computers and they like to stretch the capability
of the systems. And you know what, the activities they do in the computers are called
So, whats the problem with hacking and its hackers? Well, the problem is
whether hacking and its hackers is legal or illegal? What I mean is that people in the
world have many different views about hacking and the hackers. Some of them take
sides, but many object.
To get back to what I was saying previously, let us see the positive points of a
hacker, shall we? Although in most places breaking into computer systems is considered
illegal, I believe that hackers dont do anything illegal because they only want to know
and try the systems. I dare to say that a hacker likes finding the strengths and the
weaknesses of a computer system. They feel proud if they can find the weaknesses. So I
dont really see the crimes in this case. In addition, these hackers sometimes help the
police catch the white collar criminals, such as bank robbers, money launderers, credit
card forgers. For example, in 2000, the U.S. hackers caught some Singaporean hackers
who made Virus Love to break up the programs of the U.S. National Security system.
Nevertheless, those who object to the good points of a hacker say that hacking is a
crime. The reason is that some hackers use their brilliant skills to break into banks and
other vital institutions where they can get money, destroy information, and the worst
thing is they can get secret information and sell it to another country. This is a treachery.
Take for example, in 1994, The U.S. government broke a conspiracy of computer
hackers out of Majorca, Spain. These hackers were responsible for accessing and
eliminating 190,000 telephone credit card numbers over computer bulletin boards in
America and Europe. Seeing this fact, I dont blame those who think negatively about
To put the whole thing in a nut shell, I personally think that hackers are not bad
people with their brilliant skills. However, they could be bad because of money
orientation to get the wealth. Thats just the point.

Is an X-Ray Examination Necessary?

Students, can you show me your hands? Right! Now can you show me your head?
Excellent! But, can you show me what is inside your stomach? Hmm Can you show
me your lungs? No? Why? Yeah, youre right. Because they are inside our body.
So what do you think, how can we see the internal parts of our body? Yes. We use
an X-Ray. So, what is an X-Ray? Does anybody know? No? Well, an X-Ray is a
spectrum of light. It is radiated through our body. It is used for detecting our internal
body organs. Am I making myself clear?
Well, let me continue. Where can you find an X-Ray? Yes, thats right. In a
hospital. And do you know who invented the X-Ray? Does anybody know? No? Oh,
come on. Nobody remembers the name? Well, the X-Ray was invented by a German
scientist, William Conrad Rontgen.
Where was I? Oh, O.K. Hmm When do people get an X-ray? Correct. When
they are ill. I mean when there is something wrong with the internal parts of their body.
Can you give any examples of illnesses? When people have these diseases they need an
X-Ray to check. Yes, cancer, kidney trouble, heart trouble, tumors, etc.
Students, do you know that there are many conflicting opinions about the use of
X-Rays in a hospital? Well, look at the chart! 60% of people agree that an X-Ray
examination is beneficial. They say that doctors should use an X-Ray in examining a
severe illness. If doctors dont use an X-Ray, they could miss some important information
which is very useful in making a diagnosis on a patients disease. And this will sometimes
cause a doctor to be inaccurate in prescribing medicine to cure an illness.
However, not all patients agree with the use of X-Ray examination. Look at the
chart again, 40% of patients disagree with the use of an X-Ray examination. Do you
know why? Gues what? They think that using an X-Ray examination will cost them a lot
of money. Thats really true. Another reason is that the radiation of an X-Ray has some
risks to body tissues.
Well, as a result of this controversy, many people use traditional health cure to
avoid the high cost of hospital care. However, hospitals still insist on having X-Ray
examinations on patients to get an accurate diagnosis although the cost is very high.

Jurrasic Park: The Lost World

A reviewer from Indonesia :

Good morning to all the fans of science-fiction movies. Welcome back with me,
Putri Made Lestari, in an adventure program, Science-fiction review. Do you still
remember the story of Jurassic Park I? Great! I absolutely love Jurassic Park and all the
science fiction movies will always please the fans, including me. The Lost World is
Jurassic Park Part II, which is still about an island populated with real dinosaurs.
Released in 1997.
This science-fiction adventure is the sequel to the box-office hit Jurassic Park
(1993), in which a scientist built a dinosaur theme park on a remote island. Although
those dinosaurs were destroyed, there were still some left on another island. Dr. Sarah
Harding, played by Julianne Moore, and Dr. Ian Malcolm, played by Jeff Goldblum,
travel to the island to observe the dinosaurs and try to prevent Roland Tembo who is
played by Pete Postlethwaite from rounding the beasts up and taking them to a theme
park in the United States. The weather turns bad, the dinosaurs become violent, and one
of the angry beasts makes its way to Los Angeles, California. Its very amazing, isnt it?
Okay audience, with me this morning is Mr.Steven Spielberg, the director of the
Jurassic Park. Good morning and welcome to Indonesia. Id be glad to have your view
on Jurassic Park.
Steven Spielberg: To be perfectly frank, this is not a science fiction, its science
eventually. This movie, however, wants you to learn one thing: you decide you can
control nature, and from that moment on youre in deep trouble because you cant do it.
You can make a boat, but you cant make the ocean. You can make an aeroplane, but you
cant make the air. Your powers are much less than your dreams would have you believe.
The reviewer from Indonesia: Wow, Jurassic Park really deserves the highest
praise. Thanks for joining with Mr. Steven Spielberg and me. See you tomorrow on the
same program. Bye.

Listen carefully to the following book review. While listening, fill in the blanks.

The Guy Next Door

Meggin Cabot

A novel normally consists of chapters. But you will find none in this book. Why?
Because it consists of e-mails. Yep, you read me right, they are a bunch of e-mails from
people who keep in touch with each other and talk about all kinds of seemingly unrelated
things, which somehow share a common thread, in a humorous way.
Melissa Fuller is a journalist working for the New York Journal. From her and her
friends e-mails, we get the impression that Melissa is an attractive, intelligent, red-haired
single girl with a kind heart toward her friends and animals. After an accident and some
arrangements, she ends up living next door to a handsome stranger whom she believes is
the nephew of her elderly neigbor. Actually, he is not what he admits he is. But before she
knows it, they fall in love with each other. Will she be able to accept the fact that the
gorgeous guy next door has been lying to her even though they both share the same
Meggin Cabot alias Meggin Patricia Cabot is also the writer of the successful
teenage series The Princess Diaries. The Guy Next Door is her debut in the genre of
contemporary adult novel. It discusses relationships, working environments, and solving
a mystery from many peoples different point of view. Just like her other books, The Guy
Next Door is amusing, refreshing, and enlightening altogether. I wonder what this and
other writers will do next, create a novel out of cluster of SMSs, perhaps? THAT would
be cool. Ully
