[00:10.34]Do you have anything in common?
[00:13.98]Fill in the diagram.
[00:17.42]Hi! I"m Ross and I live in Washington,D.C.,the capital of the U.S.
[00:25.89]Bet you don"t know what D.C. stands for!
[00:30.33]It means District of Columbia,named after Christopher Columbus.
[00:37.28]I like Washington because there"s so much to do.
[00:42.03]I love going to museums and historical monuments.
[00:47.18]Last week, I visited the Aerospace museum.
[00:52.45]You can see rockets that went into space!
[00:57.03]My favorite school subjects are computer science and math.
[01:02.59]I have a lot of homework, but when it"s done,
[01:08.23]I enjoy reading science fiction and watching TV.
[01:13.59]On weekends, I spend time with my family.
[01:18.26]We often have a picnic in one of the large city parks.
[01:23.72]I also play football with my friends,
[01:28.16]or we just go down to the mall and hang out.
[01:32.84]My dream is to go to UCLA and study aeronautics.
[01:38.90]Then I want to join the US space program!
[01:43.65]4a Read the article.
[01:48.62]Find three ways that Nicky"s life is different from yours.
[01:54.36]living in the Outback
[01:57.92]Nicky Logan is 13 years old,and she comes from Australia"s Northern Territory.
[02:06.09]She lives on a farm with her parents,
[02:10.64]her brothers Martin and Ben,and 50,000 sheep.
[02:16.52]The Logan"s farm is in the "Outback".
[02:20.56]Most of Australia is "Outback"—it"s very hot and dry
[02:26.73]and not many people live there.
[02:30.88]Sometimes Nicky and her family don"t see any other people for weeks.
[02:37.34]So how do Nicky and her brothers go to school?
[02:42.01]Well,they don"t go to school—their school comes to them,
[02:47.58]by radio and the Internet.
[02:51.05]They sit at home and use the radio to talk to their teachers and their classmates.
[02:57.29]Their classmates live on other farms
[03:01.45]and their teachers work at the"School of the Air"in a town called Alice Springs.
[03:09.10]When the pupils have to do homework,
[03:12.94]they send it to their teachers by fax or the Internet.
[03:17.98]When Nicky isn"t studying,
[03:21.46]she likes to ride her horse and help the farm workers with the sheep.
[03:26.92]It"s hard work for a young girl,but she enjoys it.
[03:31.67]Sometimes she plays tennis with her brothers,
[03:36.03]and when it"s very hot,she likes to go swimming in the river on the farm.
[03:42.59]"I think I"m really lucky to live on an outback farm, " say Nicky.
[03:48.23]"I love nature and wildlife.
[03:51.89]We have some cool animals — koalas,kangaroos and wallabies.
[03:58.16]But not all the animals are cool.
[04:01.82]There are some poisonous snakes and spiders here.
[04:06.78]They can be dangerous!"The"School of the Air" is only for younger students.
[04:14.04]So next year,when Nicky is 14,
[04:18.48]she will have to go to a boarding school in Alice Springs.
[04:23.55]She will live at the school and visit her family during the vacations.
[04:29.19]I"ll miss my parents and my horse,"she says,
[04:33.63]"but my brother Martin will be there.
[04:37.39]I think it"ll be good to study with other kids."

[06:56.29]In the box, write the things he liked,and the things he didn"t like.
[07:02.14]I had to get up at six o"clock every morning
[07:06.68]and ride my bike five miles to school.
[07:11.44]In winter,it was very cold,and in summer it was very hot,but I didn"t mind.
[07:20.27]I liked to exercise.
[07:23.72]We wore uniforms to school,not like Canadian kids today.
[07:29.99]Some of the girls liked their school uniform,
[07:34.35]but the uniform for boys looked strange.
[07:39.00]We had to wear crazy straw hats!
[07:43.44]Our school wasn"t in a very good place.
[07:47.80]It was next to a train station.
[07:51.56]Sometimes it was difficult to hear the teacher because of all the trains outside.
[07:58.22]The school was small,too,and the classrooms were very crowded.
[08:04.47]There were usually forty or fifty students in every class.
[08:09.80]There was no TV at that time,so we didn"t know a lot about the world.
[08:16.35]I remember our geography textbook had beautiful photographs
[08:22.41]from far away places like India,China,and Africa.
[08:28.79]Geography was really interesting for kids in those days!
[08:34.43]Families were poor because it was the time of the Great Depression.
[08:40.31]I wore my elder brother"s old uniform.
[08:44.67]My shoes had holes where you could see my toes.
[08:49.71]It was terrible!We were poor but we still enjoyed ourselves.
[08:56.97]I loved to play baseball and ice hockey after class.
[09:02.15]But we played ice hockey on frozen ponds.
[09:06.69]Not inside like the kids today.
