Учням, які виконували ролі глядачі задають питання.

1. To Ben Brown.

Do you think it is your business that doesn't give you a chance to have a good family?

2. To Alice Freedman.

What other plans have you got? What other roles would you like to play?

3. To Michael Jones.

We see that you do nothing to be happy. Is it nature that makes you really happy?

4. To Angelo Boggs.

Are you sure that in 10 or more years you will not be sorry for being alone?

Can you say that you have real friends? You can't buy friendship!!!

5. To Valerie James.

Do you think you will find a man who will watch your photos in magazines patiently? You know men don't usually like their wives to be popular among other men.

There are so many other professions except that of a model. They could also make you rich and prosperous. What do you think about them?

Pocket money

Person 1. Pocket money and the problems of pocket money are closely connected with teenagers who don't work. At this age children begin to feel that they have their own personal needs according to their tastes.

The first pocket money is usually given by parents to children for sweets, and other money problems are to be solved by parents. But when a child becomes older his needs consequently mature. He has a lot of hobbies which make him interested in buying different books, CDs, cassettes, cards. But in our modern world many children spend their pocket money wrongly, buying cigarettes and alcoholic drinks. I think that parents must be careful with giving pocket money. They must know everything about the needs of their children, even control the way the children spend their money.

As for me, I spend my pocket money on buying books and magazines. I'm also interested in sweets, and presents for my friends and relatives.

Person 2. I can't spend money wisely. I always buy things that I can do without.
Sometimes I spend my pocket money on computer games, CD's, cassettes, notebooks and other nonsense. A year ago at school we were given money in place of breakfast, which was given us in the school canteen. Some children didn't give the money to their parents and they spent it on unnecessary things. Our teacher said that were occasions when pupils had even bought cigarettes and beer! That's why we aren't given money at school now.

My parents are very considerate and supportive, and they will always give me money if I need something.

Person 3. If I have pocket money, I spend it very quickly. When 1 have a lot of pocket money, I can buy everything. I can go to the cinema, or go to McDonalds.

Young people spend money buying new videos or CDs. I don't like to spend my pocket money this way. 1 can listen to music on the radio and I can watch films on TV. Money spent should give fun. You can save up your pocket money, and can buy flowers for your mum. Anyway, if you have an imagination, you can spend your money well. You can go to the park with your friends and breathe fresh air in the countryside. You can also go to museums, or theatres.

Person 4. There are a lot of different ways of spending pocket money; but I know only three: play at the computer club, buy something tasty or buy fantasy books. Of these ways, 1 prefer to buy something tasty, because I have a computer and my friend Sasha gives me many interesting books.

My mother gives me a little money, so I must spend money wisely. If they show interesting films in the cinema, I might go to see a film.

Музика. Пісня групи ABBA “Money”.
