    1 Read the magazine article about future transport quickly. Which invention can you fl y and drive?


    Transport Of The FutureTransport Of The Future

    Every day we use cars, buses, bikes and trains to get around. But how will we travel in the future? We asked three experts for their predictions.

    Is this the future?

    I think well use small flying machines, like the Jetson, says scientist

    David Harris. The Jetson is like an alien spaceship, but itll fly like a

    helicopter. Itll travel three metres above the ground and people

    will take off and land in their gardens. The Jetson will be easy to

    fly too. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

    Future transport wont pollute, says Dr Klein from the Science

    Museum. The i-unit is a good example of this type of transport.

    There wont be any pollution because its electric, and itll be

    quiet because its very small. Will this be the transport of the

    future? I hope so. But will drivers wear the funny i-unit suit

    too? Lets wait and see!

    Traffic jams will be a big problem, predicts Professor Field, but they wont be a

    problem if youve got a Light-Sport Aircraft. If youre in a rush, you can get out of

    the car, fold out its wings and fl y into the air. Easy! Its a big improvement on

    other ideas for future transport because its a car and a plane. Well

    probably see the Light-Sport Aircraft in the shops soon. Start saving

    your money because it wont be cheap!

    Grammar will / wont predictions

    I think well fl y around in Jetsons.The Light-Sport Aircraft wont be cheap.Will this be the transport of the future?

    2 1.25 Listen and read. Match the statements with the transport.

    a Jetson b i-unit c Light-Sport Aircraft

    1 It wont pollute cities. b2 It will land in peoples gardens.3 It will be very expensive.4 It wont fl y high in the sky.5 It will be very small.6 Traffic jams wont be a problem.7 It will be easy to fl y.8 It wont be noisy.

  • The Magic AmuletThe Magic Amulet



    Ra: I dont believe it! You touched the amulet!Holly: Im sorry but where are we?Ra: Ill tell you where were in ancient Egypt!Max: No chance! Ra: And were here because you didnt listen.Holly: Look! The half amulet! Im wearing it!Ra: Yes, and were going to find the other half.Holly: Is the amulet magic?

    Ra: Many years ago the amulet belonged to a great Pharaoh. It was magic and very powerful. Bad people tried to kill the Pharaoh and take the amulets power, so the Pharaoh broke the amulet in two. The Pharaoh hid half of the amulet to save his kingdom.

    Ra: We cant go back to our time with half an amulet. Max: But how are we going to find the other half? Ra: Well, we arent going to stay here! Were going to walk to those pyramids. Then youre going to look for it!Max: Ow! My foot!
