The Tortoise and the Eagle
A long while ago a tortoise sat on the dusty land and watched the birds wheeling and circling in the air over his head. He grew dissatisfied with his lowly life when he saw so many of them enjoying themselves in the clear blue sky; he longed to join them and share their freedom.
“If only I could get myself up into the air I’m sure I could soar and swoop with the best of them,” he thought.
He pondered on this problem for a long time; the sun burned down and he got hotter and hotter and more discontented as he enviously watched the birds. Suddenly an eagle came to rest on a rock close behind him and, seizing such a favourable opportunity, the tortoise offered all the treasures of the sea if only the monarch of the air would teach him to fly.
The eagle at first declined the task, for he considered it not only absurd but impossible, but, being further pressed by the entreaties and promises of the tortoise, he finally agreed to try.
Taking him up to a great height in the air, the eagle loosed his hold, bidding the stupid tortoise to fly if he could. Before the misguided creature could express a word of thanks he fell upon a huge rock and was dashed to pieces. (Reading Games; Hadfield, J, )

Do you believe in fairies?
Well, a friend of mine, Ron Black, probably does. He has just published a book on fairies and their secret lives. In his book he is trying to prove that fairies exist and live everywhere around us. There are different types of fairies. Some of them are good and they always help people. Other fairies are very hard to please. When they get angry, they can even steal a human child or make you very ill.
Fairies live not just under flowers and leaves in gardens, but also in our homes. There was a custom in some countries to leave something to eat and drink in the corners where people thought the fairies were the most active. Today, as Ron writes, people forget to feed fairies properly. That’s why there are so many wars and conflicts in the world.
But does Ron really believe in fairies? Has he ever seen one? When I ask such questions, he only smiles. Then he takes out a plan of his house and shows me where they live in his place: brownies in the bathroom, goblins in the kitchen and pixies in the bedroom upstairs. So who knows? The next time I’ve got a headache, I will remember to leave some milk in the corner of my bathroom. (New Opportunities: Elementary, p. 117)

The Magic of Potter
There was time when no one knew the name Harry Potter. Now, the adventures of this extraordinary student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are read in over 45 languages, including Russian, Thai, and even ancient Greek. No one can explain the Harry Potter phenomenon—not even J.K. Rowling, his creator.
J.K. Rowling was born in England in 1965. From a young age, she knew she wanted to be a writer. When she was 6, she wrote her first story—about a rabbit that gets sick. At school, she used to make up stories to tell her friends.
After graduating from college, she worked as a secretary. But she didn’t give up her dream. She spent her lunch hour writing stories, mainly for adults. Then in 1990, on a train trip to London, she got the idea for the boy wizard. She says he just appeared in her head. She soon created a whole cast of unique characters to help Harry battle the forces of darkness.
She kept working on the story while she was teaching English in Portugal, where she married, had her first child, and divorced a year later. When she returned to England, she brought back a suitcase of Harry Potter stories.
After returning home, she was broke and living in a small, cramped apartment. She continued writing, and in 1995, finished the first book in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It was published in 1997 and became an unexpected bestseller.
Rowling’s life has changed dramatically. She has become internationally famous and now earns around $40 million a year. She remarried, had a second child, and currently lives in Scotland. (Interchange 2, p. 91)
