When you travel on the motorway to Toulouse in the south of France, you pass by a large medieval city sitting among the vineyards and the sunflower fields. It is the old walled city of Carcassonne. It is one of the top tourist attractions in France. You might know it from films. It was Nottingham, the home of the Sheriff in the film Robin Hood , Prince of Thieves. But it has another connection with the film industry.

The city has got a castle, a cathedral, and lots of restaurants and tourist shops selling souvenirs for adults and toy helmets, swords, and shields for children. There is an open-air theatre in the garden of the cathedral, where the annual festivals of plays and concerts of classical and popular music takes place.

Part of the city is a modern 21st century city, but parts of it looks almost as it did in the 12th century. And especially so in July and August when tourists can enjoy the Medieval Tournament. Knights on horseback with their shields and lances ride towards each other to fight. And once they have been knocked off their horses, the fighting continues with swords, until there is one last knight left standing. He wins the contest.

The fighting and riding skills of the knights might remind you of some action films you have seen. This is not surprising. When these knights are not fighting in Carcassonne, they work as stunt actors in French cinema and TV.

 

  1. Where is Carcassonne? It is in the south of France.
  2. Which town was it in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves?  It was Nottingham.

VI Read the text and answer the questions.

Everybody needs friends, but researchers show that teenagers need friends more than older people. And friends are more important to girls than boys.

This is not surprising. Girls and women are generally more interested in social relationships than boys and men. The ages from 12 to 18 are the years when we are trying to find out who we are.

Perhaps we think the most important thing about our friends is that we have fun with them, but there is more serious side to friendship. Teenagers learn most of their social skills from friends. Through friends you learn how to agree and disagree, and how to work together to organize and do things. Even more important, perhaps, is the role friends have when problems arise. A real friend will help you solve your problems and will advise you when you feel sad or upset. This experience is essential to the development of personality. Young people who don’t have friends not only have less happy teenage years, but are very likely to have emotional and psychological problems in later life.

Friendship is important, but it can also be dangerous. Most young people don’t like to be different so they often start doing things they shouldn’t do because their friends have put pressure on them. For example, they might start drinking alcohol, smoking or taking drugs. Teenagers need friends, but they also need to be careful in choosing them.

 

  1. Which sort of people are more interested in having friends?  Teenagers need friends more than older people. Also girls are more interested in friends than boys.
  2. What are three good things about having friends? The three good things are  that teenagers learn most of their social skills from friends, they learn how to agree and disagree, and how to work together to organize and do things.
  3. What do friends do when you have problems?  A real friend will help you solve your problems and will advise you when you feel sad or upset
  4. What can happen to people who didn’t have friends when they were young?They are very likely to have emotional and psychological problems in later life.
  5. How can friends cause problems for teenagers? They can put pressure on them to start drinking alcohol, smoking or taking drugs.
