Дополните предложения, выбрав один из предложенных вариантов Silly Like Fish?
When people are asked to name the cleverest species, they usually talk about dolphins, monkeys, dogs and horses. When it comes to fish, people don’t give them much credit. Fish are considered to have tiny brains, no memory and o ability for learning. Fish pet owners, fishermen and some scientists don’t agree with that at all.
According to them, fish are much smarter then most people think. Experiments and tests prove that fish are able to receive, some of them are even able to identify and remember symbols. In some tests, fish were put in a large tank of water. To get food the fish had to swim through the labyrinth. The corridors were marked with different symbols: blue square, red circles, and green triangles. The route that led to food was marked with triangles. The fish soon found out which route led to the award and headed there immediately. Then the labyrinth was changed, but the corridor which led to food was marked with same green triangles. It’s amazing – the fish recognized the symbols! They followed the green triangles
and ignored squares and circles.
Fishermen can tell even more amazing stories about bright and resourceful fish. They say fish can be smart enough to avoid cleverly set nets, and to make a fool of a fisherman. Fish are brilliant navigators and are able to find the place where they were born. They know how to return there to spawn. They can remember deep and shallow places in their rivers, and stay in “ safe pools” when the weather gets too hot and the river dries up. They can even leap from one safe pool to another, which means they remember the map of the riverbed.
9 The labyrinth experiment proves that…
1. fish are able to remember sounds.
2. fish are able to remember people.
3. fish are able to remember geometric shapes.
4. fish are able to find food by smell. 10 Do fishermen agree with scientists that fish are clever and intelligent?
Yes, and they have lots of stories to prove it.
Yes but they never mention any stories to prove it.
Yes, they say fish can recognize colours and smells.
No, fishermen think fish are silly and can’t learn.

All those nice things – silk shirts, trendy jeans with paste and the dress with the original belt – looked gorgeous on the slim girls from the shiny pages of the fashion magazine, but they would look silly on her. She knew that. She would give anything to become like those shiny girls. To Jenny, they were creatures from a different world of glamorous parties, expensive cars, and breathtaking careers. “No wonder that they look so happy,” –said Jenny with an intense note of jealousy in her voice. “ I wish I could see thief they had my turned-up nose and silly freckles, and my…”now she was almost weeping, “and my fat cheeks! And I walk awkwardly, and I cannot dance! Life is unfair –some people are born to be successful and some – to become a failure!”
Miranda was watching all that from the door way. Her fifteen-year-old daughter was still such a kid. To cry about her look – Well, I never! Her Jenny, her charming girl, with two dimples on her cheeks when she smiled, was feeling unhappy only because she looked different from models faces in a fashion magazine! To Miranda, none of those super-skinny models could compare to her Jenny.
There was only one thing Miranda didn’t like about her daughter: Jenny didn’t fell confident about herself, and it prevented the girl being happy.

Jenny looked up at her mum. “She was born an invalid, but became the queen? Is it a new story about a Cinderella?”
“Not exactly”, replied Miranda. “This girl had a much more difficult problem. And she won without the Fairy Godmother.”
11. Jenny felt unhappy because…
1. she couldn’t afford to buy the clothes she liked.
2. her mother didn’t agree to buy her clothes.

And I'm happy to see you in our summer school English International. It's always nice to see so many brave young people who are keen on learning languages and who are able to come to the classroom in summer, instead of going to the beach or... wherever.
I'm proud of you. I adore you for that! Anyway, I promise that you'll enjoy it and you'll never regret it. So, welcome to EnglishInternational.
First, some brief information about our school rules and about the facilities we are happy to offer you here. As you already know from your welcome pack, you have classes every day from Monday to Friday and you don't study at weekends. You have two full days a week for the beach and clubs and discos, which is not bad, is it?
You classes start from half past nine in the morning and last till one o’clock p.m. Please, be in time for your lessons. If you are late for your classes, you will be admitted only at the discretion of the teacher. In other words, if you are a latecomer, you may be not allowed-into the classroom, and you can't complain about it. So, don't be a latecomer!
If you cannot come to class because of illness or some emergency, let us know about it as soon as possible. Call the Director of Studies, her name is Stephanie Twigg and she can be reached at telephone 3707538, or ask your host family to contact us. The host family has all our contact numbers and will give you all possible support as needed.
You should be also aware that we have a doctor on twenty-four hour call out. I’d like to point out again that you cannot miss classes unless the doctor allows you to do it and gives you a written permission.
