2. Dear Sonya,UNIT 1As you know, we (1) ARENT GETTING (not get) any younger. Ioften have trouble remembering things, and even now, I(2) DONT KNOW (not know) where my glasses are so I (3) AMWRITING (write) without them. But all is not lost! Tomorrow I (4)AM GOING (go) to Brain Spa, which is a new fitness gym forthe mind! These brain gyms (5) ARE BECOMING (become)more and more popular nowadays because experts say thattraining the brain (6) IMPROVES (improve) memory, just asphysical exercise (7) MAKES (make) the body strong. I realisethat you (8) DONT USUALLY ENJOY (not usually enjoy) doingpuzzles or computer games, but they say that at Brain Spa thetime (9) PASSES (pass) quickly and its really quite fun.(10) DO you WANT (want) to try it? Perhaps we could gotogether.All the best,Bertha 3. Unit 2NO HUGS ALLOWED(1) DO you FEEL (feel) that the rules at your school are too strict? Well, ShephardJunior High School in Arizona, USA has got rules that are probably stricter.

Be careful, she said. The teacher (4) ISWATCHING (watch) you! But it was too late. The teacher (5) SENT (send) Chelseato the principals office. Her crime? She (6) HAD HUGGED (hug) her friend for toolong, breaking a new school rule: hugging in the school for more than two secondswas forbidden.The following day, 100 students (7) HELD (hold) a protest across the street from theschool.

Unit 3DANGER: DRINKING WATERInvestigators (1) HAVE RECENTLY FOUND (recently find) medicines inthe drinking water of all 50 states of the United States. Earlier this year,they (2) EXAMINED (examine) samples of water from all over thecountry. While they (3) WERE WORKING (work), they began to realisethat the situation was very serious. The results showed that therewere small amounts of drugs in all the samples they (4) HAD TAKEN(take) painkillers, antibiotics, hormones and medicines for epilepsy,to name a few. The problem is that the water many people (5) DRINK(drink) comes from rivers or lakes that (6) ARENT (not be) pure. Thewater is cleaned, but this (7) DOESNT REMOVE (not remove) allbacteria or drugs. At the present time, researchers (8) DONTUNDERSTAND (not understand) the dangers of many years of exposureto low levels of medicines, but they (9) HAVE ALREADY DONE (alreadydo) experiments on animals which suggest serious effects. So, anyonein the United States who (10) IS NOW DRINKING(now drink) a glass ofcold water from the tap should think twice. They may want to put itdown and buy some mineral water instead! 5.
