Audio script: In this week's programme we'll share with you some cool ways to hang out with your best friends after a busy week at school. Basically you can hang out indoors or outdoors. If you like staying indoors, ask your parents if you can invite one or two friends over. Make some popcorn! Watch a movie! It's more comfortable than going to a cinema! Or if you're feeling creative, you can make crafts together. You'll feel satisfied once you finish something. If you fancy being outdoors, play some sports together. Football, badminton, biking... you name it! Or it can simply be a relaxing walk in the park. All these activities are good for your physical health. Do you prefer something more exciting? Go downtown and do some people watching. It's fun. If you like something more organised, go to cultural centers, libraries, and museums. Educate yourself while having fun!
Audio script: I live in a mountain village. My parents often tell me stories about their life in the past. It's not much like the village I can see nowadays. Some villagers now live in brick houses instead of earthen ones. Our houses are better equipped with electric fans and TVs. Thanks to the TV, we now know more about life outside our village. We don't use oil lamps any more. We have electric lights which are much brighter. More villagers are using motorcycles for transport instead of riding a horse or walking. We – village children – no longer have to walk a long way and cross a stream to get to school, which is dangerous in the rainy season. Now there's a new school nearby. We also have more visitors from the city. They come to experience our way of life.
Audio script: Five- colored sticky rice is an important traditional dish of many ethnic minorities in the northern mountainous regions. People call the dish five-colored sticky rice because it has five colors: red, yellow, green, purple and white. The things that create the colors are not chemicals but natural roots and leaves. The five colors of the dish represent five elements of life according to Vietnamese beliefs: yellow is earth, red is fi re, green is plants, white is metal, and purple or black is water. People believe that these five elements create harmony between heaven and earth. Five-colored sticky rice is usually made and enjoyed at Tet, in festivals and ceremonies, on special occasions, and whenever the family has guests.
Audio script: LIFE IN THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE
According to a recent survey by Country Life magazine, about 80 percent of Britain's population dream of living in the countryside. In fact the countryside of England today shows the wealth of landowners and those who can afford to escape the busy and noisy city life. English village communities are often small and close. They are warm and usually welcoming. Maggie, who lives in North Yorkshire, says: 'Village life is wonderful and safe for the kids. There is a great sense of community here. It is more relaxing and you can't tell who has money and who doesn't'. People in the English countryside use private transport more, and the environment hasn't been spoilt much.
Audio script: In the UK we eat around the dining table. We follow lots of table manners. Firstly, we use cutlery – you know, knives, forks and spoons – to eat most of the food. We hold the fork in the left hand and the knife in the right. You should hold the handle of the knife in your palm and your fork in the other hand with the prongs pointing downwards. There is also a spoon and a fork for dessert. When you fi nish eating, you should place your knife and fork with the prongs upwards on your plate. Secondly, you should never use your own cutlery to take more food from the serving dish – use the serving spoon. Now if there's bread on the table, you can use your hands to take a piece. Then break off a small piece of bread and butter it. Thirdly, if you are a guest, you have to wait until the host or hostess starts eating and you should ask another person to pass the food. Next, never chew with your mouth open and don't talk with food in your mouth...
Audio script: Today I'm going to tell you about the xoe dance, a traditional dance of the Thai ethnic group in Viet Nam. Thai people have followed this spiritual tradition for generations. The xoe dance expresses people's working life and wishes for a happy and wealthy life. It is performed in both public and private gatherings such as celebrations, festivals or family reunions. The xoe dance has more than 30 forms based on the fi rst six ancient forms. The most popular form is the xoe vong or 'circle dance' because it expresses social unity. People, young or old alike, join hands to make a circle around the fi re and dance to the music. Besides the circle dance, there are dances with conical hats, paper fans or scarves. Old people say they shouldn't break with this tradition because it refl ects Thai culture and lifestyle. As a Thai folk song goes, without the xoe dance, the rice won't grow and people won't get married.

Audio script: The Giong Festival is celebrated every year in Phu Linh Commune, Soc Son District, Ha Noi. This festival commemorates the hero, Saint Giong. He is considered a mythical hero because he grew from a three-year-old child into a giant overnight. He is worshipped for defending the country from foreign invaders - the An. Although this festival is held from the 6th to the 12th day of the 4th lunar month, people start preparing traditional clothing for the procession and for various festival performances one month beforehand. During the festival, the procession starts at the Mother Temple and goes to Thuong Temple where a religious ceremony is performed. When night falls, a cheo play is performed. Then the festivities end with a thanksgiving procession on the 12th. This festival shows our love for the motherland and the preservation of our cultural heritage.
Audio script: Once upon a time, there was a king and a queen who lived in a castle with their beautiful daughter. One night an ugly ogre captured the princess and put her in his tall, dark tower. The king and the queen were very sad. They promised to give gold to the knight that rescued the princess. Many knights wanted to rescue her. But they all ran away when they reached the tower and saw the ogre roaring with anger. One day a dragon was flying over the tower when he heard the princess cry for help. The dragon flew down to the tower, took a big fiery breath and blew the ogre far away. The dragon rescued the princess from the tower and gently put her on his strong back. They flew back to the castle. The king and the queen were so happy. The dragon turned into a handsome prince and married the princess. They all lived happily ever after.
REVIEW 2: (4&5&6):
Audio script: After living in France for a few months, I realised that I really should stop trying to be so polite all the time. The French seem to find it annoying if you say things like 'I'm awfully sorry' because they feel you are wasting their time. It must seem to them that the British spend their whole time apologising! The French don't really make 'small talk' either. Chatting to strangers such as taxi drivers or shop assistants, especially politely, is seen as rather strange. And there is another interesting difference. People at dinner parties in France will expect to take part in a serious discussion. The guests are often asked their opinions on 'big issues'. British people enjoy discussions about house prices and education. However, they are sometimes surprised if their guests want to talk about anything serious, such as politics or art.
