D) Act out the dialogues following the intonation from the cassette.



1. You and your partner are two married young women who are talking about their former school-mate’s coming marriage.

2. Your friend tells you that your former school-mate, who never believed in marriage, has just got married.

11 Tell your fellow-students about your parents’ wedding or about any wedding you have been to.

12 a) Read what three men from the Bennett family say about how life has changed over three generations.

Jacob, the grandfather (65)

When I see my son and his son together, I think they have a lovely relationship – it wasn’t like that in my day. My father was very strict, and we had to obey him without question.

At home we didn’t have a television, so we had to make our own entertainment. I spent all my free time outside playing football. But we couldn’t play football on Sundays because we had to go to church.

I left school when I was fourteen and went to work in a bakery. That’s where I met Mabel. We couldn’t bring girlfriends home in those days. We had to meet in public places. I suppose that’s why so many people got married young. I was only nineteen, and Mabel was eighteen.

Michael, the son (44)

When I was growing up, my father was always at work, and when he came home we couldn’t disturb him because he was tired.

Because my father left school very early and regretted it afterwards, he wanted me to do well at school. I had to show him my homework every night and I could only watch television at the weekend.

When I was eighteen I got a place at university. My parents didn’t have to support me financially because the government gave me a grant to study.

I didn’t go home very often, even during the holidays. I preferred spending time with my friends, especially my girlfriends. In my last year of university I met Louise, and we got a place together. We had to get married when Louise found out she was pregnant.

Tom, the grandson (19)

I’ve always had a very close relationship with my dad and I don’t have to hide anything from him.

When I was at school, I had a lot of freedom. When I went out I didn’t have to come home at a certain time – my parents trusted me.

I’m at college now, and my parents have to pay for my studies, but I have to work in the evenings to pay for any luxuries I want.

My girlfriend often stays at my parents’ house, and I sometimes go and stay with her parents. Both our parents think we should get married one day, but we are definitely not in a hurry.
