    LOOKING FOR A PERFECT LANGUAGE COURSE
    Spending a summer in Britain is one of the best ways to learn English. It also provides the perfect opportunity to see the country, get to know its culture, make new friends and generally have a good time. Here are some questions you should ask yourself before you make your choice.
    4.1.
    Decide exactly what sort of environment would suit you best. Do you want to be near the seaside or in the country? Would you prefer to stay in a small, quiet town or in the heart of London? Perhaps you would like to study in a university town such as Oxford or Cambridge, or you feel like visiting Scotland or Wales?
    4.2.
    Over 600,000 students come to Britain every year from all over the world. Younger students may want to speak better English to help their studies at school or university; older students may want to develop their telephone or presentation skills; others simply need to improve their English for social and travel purposes. There are so many different programmes that its important to know exactly what you want to achieve.
    4.3.
    Personal recommendations by a friend can be very useful. Also, a safe option is to choose a school that is recognised by the British Council. It is important to try and determine the quality of the teachers, too. During the summer months many schools employ extra teachers, who arent always very experienced. Dont be afraid to ask schools for details of their teachers experience. Make sure they have specialist qualifications.
    4.4.
    There are hundreds of different courses on offer. You should think about the length of the course, the number of lessons per week, the group size and the programme. (Does it concentrate on spoken English? Does it include business English? etc.)
    4.5.
    Most good organisations will offer you the choice of either staying with a British family or of living in a residence. Check carefully what is included. You will spend more time in your room than you will in class, so ask plenty of questions about what is on offer. Does the price include meals? Does a college representative regularly inspect the host families?
    4.6.
    Price does not necessarily indicate good quality. You should look for good value. Will you get what you want for the price you pay?

    FOCUS ON BATH
    Bath is a beautiful, historic city in the West Country, not far from the sea and Wales. Its Roman remains and superb Georgian architecture make it a popular tourist destination. In 1988, it was made a World Heritage City, the only city in Britain to win this award. Bath was first developed during the Roman occupation of the British Isles, almost 2000 years ago. The city still has the hot springs, around which large baths frequented by the Romans were built. After the Romans were defeated, the little town of Bath grew quietly as a religious centre and a great abbey was built in the 16th century.
    Then, in the 18th century, drinking and bathing in the hot spring water became fashionable. It was believed to be good for the health, and royalty and high society came to stay in the city to drink the water and enjoy the atmosphere. It was then that the most beautiful buildings were built.
    The Bath International Festival, which takes place once a year, is a very popular event. In the 20th century the Festival and the re-opening of the Theatre Royal have made the city a lively cultural centre. There are many ways to see the city: you can take a boat trip on the River Avon, hire a bicycle, or even take a birds-eye view from a balloon. But tourists usually decide to see the town on foot the Mayors Honorary Guides give free guided tours around the city.
    Bath has over a hundred restaurants, which serve many different types of food. Award-winning restaurants might be outside your budget but there are plenty of lively, inexpensive bars, bistros and cafes. There are some really interesting places overlooking the river Avon, like Footlights Restaurant, which offers Mexican food. Teashops, meanwhile, offer delicious Bath specialities.
    (abridged and adapted from Focus on Bath and Bristol, BBC English, 1994)
    TRUE FALSE
    6.1. Bath is the only British city that has been made a World Heritage City.
    6.2. Baths hot springs were first used by the British soldiers.
    6.3. In the 18th century Bath became a fashionable destination because of the curative qualities of its waters.
    6.4. Bath International Festival is organised every second year.
    6.5. The most popular way to see the city is to go on a guided tour.
    6.6. It is possible to eat cheap meals in Bath.

    A. Rithy Panh from Cambodia
    B. Alejandra Rojo from Argentina
    C. Abderrahmane Sissako from MauritaniaęDIRECTORS IN EXILE
    Interviews by Sophie Boukhari
    How did you get into film?
    Rithy Panh (A): It wasn't something I chose. Film came to me when I went into exile after what I went through in Cambodia. If I'd stayed there, I probably would never have become a filmmaker. But I've always been aware of the power of images. What you've seen and lived through is always running through your mind. It was this - the process of remembering things that drew me into film. I dabbled a bit in painting and writing, and then, one day, someone lent me a camera for a party at a college where I was taking a carpentry course. I knew then, at 20, where my vocation stood.
    Alejandra Rojo ( : When I was a kid, I wanted to be a painter. But I was living in a very political environment, not an artistic one. My father was a lawyer and my mother a psychoanalyst. When I was about 15, I lost interest in painting, graduated from high school and began studying science. But two years later, I dropped all that and decided that I wanted to make films. So I followed classes and took the plunge.
    Abderrahmane Sissako (C): I was brought up in Mali and returned to Mauritania to finish high school. Right after that, I went off to the Soviet Union, like thousands of other African students. It was easier to go there than to France. I had a scholarship to study film and I started making my own.
    How did you come to France?
    Panh (A): Because of the Khmer Rouge. I was 17 years old. Many members of my family were killed and the rest of them fled to France.
    Rojo ( : I came here when I was 12. My father had defended political prisoners. It was the time of the death squads-22, 000 people disappeared. We were apparently on the target list.
    Sissako (C): I came in 1993 because my film October had been chosen for the Cannes Film Festival. I was invited to stay here and continue film-making.
    Does living outside your own country affect the way you make films?
    Panh (A): When you're an exile, you don't really have an identity any more. Whether in Cambodia or France, I'm kind of at home everywhere and nowhere. Far and close from everything. The lesser evil for an exile is managing to make use of this.
    Rojo ( : Exile changes your whole destiny. I'm always aware of the gap, that what's one way here would be different there. But as an artist, I manage to go beyond this stage. Exile is a moderately interesting life experience but its fascinating from a cinematographic standpoint.
    Sissako (C): Exile is always a handicap. You look at your own country, its past, its history from a slightly foreign viewpoint. When we talk about home, we tend to hesitate, to go by feel. It's a delicate process that you can lose a grip on at any moment.
    What ties do you have with your native country?
    Panh (A): I've just made my first film in France, a documentary about the Cambodian community here. I've also shot one film in Mali. I've made all the others in Cambodia. I'm interested in living with the people there. The film nearly becomes secondary. Survivors always feel guilty. To escape from this strange feeling I need to be with other people. The camera lets me do that.
    Rojo ( : I don't go back to Argentina very often. The last time, I felt I was living in an American colony. Here in France, you don't realize how fast globalization is racing ahead. The countries of the South are becoming colonies of the great American empire. There's a film to be made about that. I'd go back to Argentina to work, but that's all. It's probably to do with my family being rejected.
    Sissako (C): I often go to Mali and Mauritania - usually about twice a year, often to check film locations. I go back and forth. Each trip enriches and alters the story and each casting changes the film in some way.
    What are your plans?
    Panh (A): The project closest to my heart now is the gathering of a film archive on the Cambodian genocide. Over the next 20 years, the witnesses will either die or their memories will become distorted.
    Rojo ( : I'm working on a story about a woman with a split personality. About a robot that replaces a woman. .
    Sissako (C): My next film will be about exile. I'm going to try to tell the story of people who apply to emigrate, who are waiting to leave. I'd like to show that exile begins before the voyage itself.

    THE WAY MAMA TELLS IT
    by Roy Blount Jr.
    (extract)
    You know how it started. Aileen! You don't know about this? You just don't want to say you know because you know how torn up I am that everybody in the world knows about it.
    Well, you're sweet.. I know I can tell you things, Aileen. Because you have got good sense about what to repeat. That is exactly what Mama has lost every last speck of. I lie awake at night, worrying. What has Mama told today? What is she getting ready to tell? To an audience?
    That's what I'm telling you. Aileen, you just don't know. It's . . . I don't know. Mama is so quiet at home, can't get her to talk. I wouldn't mind a little adult conversation from her. But no, she sits there saving it up.
    You know, she got down so low when Lily died. She and that cat used to be just almost the same person. Theyd rock and watch television, rock and watch television, Mama and that cat. Lily would not sit on anyone else to save her life, just Mama. But every now and then she would go out and get little birds and chipmunks and things ..
    What? No, Lily would. Honestly, Aileen! And what the vet believes is that she got ahold of a mouse or a bird or something that had got ahold of something. (15-16)Mama would never accept that explanation. Just would not accept it.
    Anyway, Lily came in and tried to throw up - when that cat couldn't throw up you knew she wasn't herself - and died. And Mama was left - well, I know it was hard on her... She didn't seem to have any heart for TV anymore. She wouldn't even want to get up in the morning. You'd have to send the children in there right after breakfast when theyve got jelly all over them. Even that didn't get her up one morning. So I told Vaughn to take her down to the senior center. Maybe I was wrong. But I thought maybe they'd teach her to crochet. I said to Mama the other day, I said, "Mama, Why don't you crochet? Other people's Mamas crochet. (24-25)But no, she didn't take up crocheting . She didn't take up decoupage. She didn't take up arranging flowers. Mama took a course in storytelling.
    That's what I'm telling you; that's what the problem's been.
    She goes to festivals. They have festivals in it. All over the state. She wears an old-timey hat. And she tells stories. About us. About everybody. Yes. She wins awards.
    She was in the paper about it. You didn't see it? Well, it was the Spartanburg paper. Somebody sent it to us. Aileen, I opened that paper up and I said, "Oh, my Lord They quoted her stories in the paper. Mama doesn't tell stories about princesses and bears. She tells stories about me. She tells stories about Vaughn. She tells stories about Lily and the children. She tells stories about nearly everybody we know. And there just doesn't seem to be any stopping her. People come by and pick her up and drive her to these festivals. She's so popular.
    I guess she is. I could be popular too if I told everything I knew, but I wouldn't have any friends left.
    I said to Paulette Lovejohn yesterday, I said, "Paulette, you are going to hear about this. If I don't tell you about it somebody is going to tell you about it. I'm just as embarrassed as I can be, but my mama is going all over the state telling about how that washing-machine repair man showed up to fix your washing machine in your basement with a cast on his leg and went downstairs and it was so flooded from the washing machine that you kept worrying his cast was going to melt, and then you looked down and the waters had floated up all those cat BMs around him from back behind the furnace where you didn't know the cat had been going and he didn't want to say anything about it and you didn't want to say anything about it and finally he said he believed his cast might melt and he thought he'd come back when the basement had had more time to drain and you were so mortified about it - only the way Mama told it, she made it even worse because...
    You didn't hear about it? Oh, Aileen, I wish you could have seen Paulette's face when she told us about it. You know how Paulette is, how just-so she is about everything, and then to have cat BMs - and it wasn't even her cat. No, she doesn't have a cat. For that reason - that she's so just-so. Oh, Paulette can't even stand to have cat hair in her house. But the washing-machine repair man didn't have any way of knowing that. I thought Paulette was going to die when she came over and told us about that repairman and the expression on his face and all.
    And of course Mama was just sitting there. But we didn't know Mama would repeat it.
    No, see, we didn't know then. We knew she was telling stories, but none of us had had time to go hear her and of course she hadn't let on to us what the stories were about. And she wasn't writing down notes then. Now she is...(57-58) She doesn't even care really if you catch her at it, she just doesn't want you to take them away from her.
    But I told Paulette, I said, "Mama is not the same person she was. We do not know what to expect of her any longer." I said, "I told Mama, `Mama, when we were children you didn't tell us stories.' She said she was too busy raising us. She said we wouldn't sit still long enough. She said she didn't realize she knew any stories back then. I just gave up trying to reason with her.
    I finally felt like I had to go hear her perform. I went to the big state finals of storytelling, which Mama came in second in - which I thought she should have won against the old man who did win; he just went on and on about outhouses and snakes. But I listened to Mama hold forth up there on that stage, Aileen, and she could have just as well been somebody else entirely. And people just applauding, and laughing, and their eyes getting wide. And my face burning. (69-70)And of course afterward Mama is just in a world of her own; she doesn't want to talk to us about it, it's as if we don't have any say over what she thinks or does.

    RED MIST COVERS IRISH EYES
    by Geoffrey Wheatcroft
    A fortnight ago, I went to a Dublin restaurant for a long-arranged lunch with Aengus Fanning, the Editor of the Sunday Independent. Two of his colleagues arrived to explain that Aengus had been held up at the office by a crisis. I knew as well as both my companions that their paper and Editor were in deep trouble, though none of us then guessed how deep. Before the end of that week, the whole of Ireland seemed in a frenzy which threatened to end careers and to upset the best-laid plans of Dr A. F. O'Reilly. All of this had stemmed from one short paragraph. It is enough to make any journalist envious - or almost.
    In her "Sunday Indo" column two days before, Mary Ellen Synon had denounced the Paralympics then taking place in Sydney as "grotesque" and "perverse". Athletic competition is not meant to be "about finding someone who can wobble his way around a track in a wheelchair", she wrote. "We are supposed to imagine that there is some kind of equivalence in value between what the cripples do and what the truly fastest, strongest, highest do. There isn't."
    There was vehement outrage from the moment it appeared. On Sunday Fanning was besieged and on Monday he defended his contributor's right to say what she liked. But by Tuesday that position had become impossible and his job looked on the line. Under heavy management pressure, he made a recantation worthy of a defendant in a Soviet show trial, while being forced embarrassingly to admit that he had not read the offending column before it was printed. By this time the "hurtful and ignorant" column had been denounced from all sides. Further abject apologies covered the front page the following Sunday as the paper waited in vain for the storm to abate.
    The antiheroine of the drama is an attractive, aggressive Irish-American journalist. Synon is a non-smoking, teetotal vegetarian, an "ice maiden" who is warmly spoken of by friends but had already made herself a public gorgon before this autumn. She had her moment of fame in London five years ago, when, Hell having no fury like a woman scorned, she outed her wavering lover Rupert Pennant-Rea, then deputy governor of the Bank of England, forcing him out of his job. She then moved to Ireland and began to write for the Sunday Independent. Her column rather oddly combines sentimental Irish nationalism with very unsentimental attacks on immigrants and asylum-seekers.
    Although the Sunday Independent is not to be confused with England's Independent on Sunday, both are owned by Tony O'Reilly, who ascended from modest beginnings in Dublin to a dazzling business career by way of 29 cups as an Irish rugby international. Fortified by the millions he amassed running Heinz in America, he became a media magnate and now has few ambitions to fulfil. He would, however, dearly like to succeed the dread Juan Antonio Samaranch as President of the International Olympic Committee. This scandal over Miss Synon and her "cripples" may not stop him achieving that, but it certainly won't have helped him.
    But amid all that fear and loathing, and while the harrying of Synon and Fanning threatened to turn into a witchcraft trial, other media issues have been ignored. It has to be said at regular intervals that press freedom is quite empty if it means the freedom to be caring, compassionate, thoughtful, sensitive and sensible. True freedom of the press can only mean the freedom to be vulgar, stupid, ignorant, offensive and just plain wrong, all of which Miss Synon sometimes is.
    Far from cooling down this week, the pot has been kept bubbling in Dublin. In the Irish Senate on Tuesday, a government minister denounced the column yet again, and the "truly offensive" failure of the paper to recognise the error of its ways.
    Meanwhile, the Easter Regional Health Board is threatening to withdraw its considerable advertising from the Sun Independent. And that raises another grave issue. Any advertiser who tries to influence a newspaper's policy or personnel should be told to get lost. One of the basic principles of a free press in a free society is a Chinese wall between advertising and editorial. A newspaper takes paid advertising, the content of which it does not dictate and advertisers should be allowed no interference whatever in editorial content.
    One of the most ominous comments on the affair was from Fintan O'Toole, the critic and Irish Times columnist, who suggested that freedom of expression should be further curtailed by criminalising not only incitement to violence but "the use of dehumanising stereotypes against entire groups"
    Whatever their immediate tribulations, I hope the Sunday Independent prospers, and Aengus Fanning, and Miss Synon too, though she might spend a little more time writing about the beauties of North Cork. I hope Tony O'Reilly succeeds Samaranch. And I hope that the Irish can see, through the mist of anger, that we already have too many laws inhibiting freedom of expression, not too few.
