1. Do you know what gender stereotypes are? You might not have heard that term before.
However, I’m sure you know what they are, don’t you? The reason I know that is because we have
all been exposed to those common ideas of how boys and girls should be and act. In fact, we were
exposed to them not long after we were born.
You know what I’m talking about. Soon after babies are born, they ＿1.＿ differently because
of their gender. Boy babies are put in blue blankets, while girl babies are put in pink ones. That’s
not surprising to people in this day and age. However, did you know that blue was first a color for
girls and pink for boys? In the past, the first color was seen as softer, and the second one was seen as
The gender stereotypes don’t stop there. As babies grow into kids, they are told and taught
different things about their gender. Girls are encouraged to play with dolls, be quiet, and act like
little princesses. ＿3.＿, boys are encouraged to play with trucks, be active, and like sports. I don’t
know if you believe that’s how boys and girls are, but you should know that those stereotypes aren’t
good for either gender.

2. Joyce：Good morning, Emily. We’re giving you your usual wash, cut, and style today, aren’t we?
Emily：Not this time. I’m tired of my hair, so I want to have something different done to it.
Joyce：Is there anything special you have in mind?
Emily：I feel like making a big change, so I want to look like that famous actress Jennifer Laurance.
Her hair is shaved really close to his head, and I have dreamed of having hair like that since I
Joyce：You aren’t serious, are you? That was out of style a long time ago. ＿4.＿, but it would
make your face look really round.
Emily：Then you tell me how my hair ＿5.＿.
Joyce：If it’s cut to just above the shoulders and some natural curls are added, your hair would look

1. A very special part of Big City is being changed in one week’s time. The car factory on the
corner of Country Road and Broadway Avenue will be knocked down on the morning of May 15th.
To bring the large building down to the ground, over two dozen bombs will be put on the bottom floor
of the factory and set off.
It is a big job, and it’s very dangerous. For that, people near the factory are asked to leave their
homes by eight o’clock in the morning at the latest that day. Also, all cars, trucks, scooters, and
motorcycles need to be moved off the streets in the area and all windows should be closed to stop dirty
things from entering homes.
We are sorry for any trouble, but the safety of everyone and everything around the factory is our
first and most important concern. If anyone has any questions, Thomas Anderson at the Mayor’s
Office can be called at 876-5400 ext. 321. Thank you for helping us get the job done as quickly and
safely as possible.

2. John：I have worked a lot these days. My boss has contacted me on my smartphone at all hours. I
really hate that.
Lily：Why do your boss’ phone calls make you so angry?
John：It’s not only his phone calls. He has also given me work to do through LINE.
Lily：I see. Do you often get your boss’ messages after work?
John：Yes, very often, and that’s not the worst part.
Lily：Really? It sounds pretty bad to me.
John：When I check my LINE account, the messages get marked as read, so my boss knows I saw them.
Lily：Why is that bad?
John：Let me put it this way. If I don’t answer the calls from my boss, he can find someone else to do
the work. However, if he sends me messages on LINE, it will be hard for me to pretend I
don’t see them. Last Tuesday, I was asked to buy him coffee on my way to the office at 5:30
in the morning.
Lily：I feel sorry for you. Smartphones are really useful for your boss.
John：Don’t you have the same problem?
Lily：Not really because my boss seldom gets in touch with me after work.
John：That’s hard to believe. How do you keep him away?
Lily：That’s easy. I don’t have a cellphone.
