Discussion of "Noah's Ark" [00:11.63]Directions: Listen to the story "Noah's Ark [00:17.06]Then discuss in groups the following questio [00:20.66]If you were Noth, which animal would you not want to take with you? Why not? [00:28.94]Noah's Ark [00:30.74]Do you know the story of Noah's ark [00:33.77]Noah lived a long, long time ago [00:37.26]He was a good ma [00:39.06]God told Noah to build an ark and to gather his family and two of every animal( one female and one male ) into the ark because it was going to rain and the world was going to be destroyed. [00:55.30]So Noah gathered two of every animal including snakes, elephants, giraffes, cows and even skunk [01:06.02]It rained for 40 days and 40 night [01:10.24]After the rain stopped, the water dried u [01:14.52]One year later, Noah let the animals out of the ark [01:19.67]Some went to Africa, some to Asia, and some to Australia, Europe, and America. [01:27.88]God Promised never to destroy the earth again with wate [01:32.41]And as a promise, God gave us the rainbow. [01:36.91]Part Two Listening-Centered Activities [01:42.38]Listen 1 [01:44.40]Exercise 1 [01:46.34]Direction: Listen to the dialog and choose the best answer for each item. [01:53.83]Fear of Spiders [01:55.99]W: Why do you think people are afraid of tarantulas? [01:59.59]M: Well, I guess it's because people are afraid of all spiders, and tarantulas happen to the biggest of all the spider [02:07.76]And maybe it's also because some spiders really are very poisonou [02:12.62]In California for example---living in most of the garages in California---you get black widow spider [02:20.40]which are quite small but they are certainly more dangerous than tarantulas. [02:25.66]W: But personally you aren't afraid of tarantulas? [02:29.15]M: Well I shouldn't be frightened of tarantulas, simply because I know that they aren't really dangerous---all they can do is to give you a small bit [02:38.83]but it's not poisonou [02:41.21]And yet I must say I don't like to pick them up [02:44.88]But you see, some people keep pet mice and pet rabbits and wel [02:50.75]they can give you a much worse bite than a tarantula ever coul [02:54.56]And yet people aren't frightened of them. [02:57.52]W: Why do you think people are frightened of spiders? [03:00.65]M: I don't know---it's very strang [03:03.82]People are frightened of spiders and they are frightened of snake [03:07.74]and, well obviously some spiders and some snakes really are poisonou [03:13.93]But most snakes are harmless, and it's really strange that people are so frightened of spiders because it's quite difficult to find a spider that's really dangerous. [03:24.84]Exercise 2 [03:27.00]Directions: Listen to the dialog again to check your answers to Exercise 1 and then discuss in pairs the following question.

[04:11.71]C: Well, he'd like a snake or a crocodile, but he isn't going to get one. [04:17.58]A: We've got a nice Alsatian dog at the moment. [04:21.25]C: An Alsatian? Did you say "an Alsatian"? Oh no, I've read about them in the pape [04:28.70]They're very big and savage. [04:30.76]A: Oh, no, madam. They aren't as savage as some dogs. [04:34.36]C: Really? [04:35.47]A: Oh, yes. Last week we had a small do [04:39.65]It was only as big as your handbag, but it was as savage as a tiger... it bit me three times! [04:47.03]C: Perhaps not a dog, then. [04:49.04]A: How about a cat? [04:51.24]C: A cat? Hmm...they aren't as friendly as dogs, are they? [04:56.32]A: No, but they don't eat as much as dogs eithe [04:59.92]And they're very clean. They wash themselves every day. [05:04.45]C: Hmm... [05:05.60]A: Or how about a bird? A parrot or a budgie? We have both. [05:11.15]C: Yes, but budgies don't need as much space as parrots, do they? [05:16.55]A: That's true. Budgies are very popular because they are so easy to keep. [05:22.42]C: Yes...but they're a bit noisy, aren't they? I want a quiet pet. [05:27.71]A: A quiet pet?
