    and the older generation should keep it in mind;
  2. parents and children belong to different generations with different ways of life,

(Possible answers: 1 - b; 2 - d (generation gap, the son’s unwillingness to accept the parents’ past); 3 - f, (b), (d); 4 - Maybe, his past, his roots embodied in his parents. Maybe, his own principles and his present way of life when he grows older. Or, maybe, his reluctance to understand his parents which, if forgotten, might lead to conflicts with his own children.)

5. Speaking. 

          Our memory is not boundless. It has its limits. Not to make it overloaded, our brain sorts out the information that should be remembered and the information that may be forgotten. Work individually. Think of your present and future. Make up two lists consisting of three items:

List one — name 3 events or facts of your present life that you will never forget.

List two — name 3 events or facts that may soon be forgotten.

Never forget… (something)

Never forget to… (do something)

Forget about… (something)

Read out the 6 facts or events of your present life to the group, and let the others guess whether you consider this information worth keeping in your memory or not.

Above us only sky

Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
Maybe someday you will join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A Brotherhood of Man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
And maybe someday you will join us
And the world will be as one

Activity 1.
Listen to “Imagine”. You have a text of this song, some words are missed. Fill them in the gaps.
– What is this song about?

What is peace?
     Peace is many things: the meaning of the word peace changes with context. Peace may refer specifically to an agreement concluded to end a war, or to a lack of external warfare, or to a period when a country's armies are not fighting enemies. It can also refer more generally to quietude, such as that common at night or in remote areas, allowing for sleep or meditation. Peace can be an emotion or internal state. And finally, peace can be any combination of these definitions.
    A person's conception of "peace" is often the product of culture and upbringing. People of different cultures sometimes disagree about the meaning of the word, and so do people within any given culture. Peace is not a symbol, peace is a mindset.

5. Reading the text

  “Imagine”, John Lennon’s famous song, was recently voted “Britain’s favourite song of all time”. It is an idealistic song about peace and the hope for a better world. “Imagine all the people living life in peace”. The song was a big hit in 1971, and again in 1980 when Lennon was murdered in New York. It became a hit for the third time after the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001.
But who really wrote the song? Until recently the answer to this question was always John Lennon. But on aTV programme Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono, spoke for the first time about how she, in fact, helped to write the song.
     Ono said that the idea and inpiration for “Imagine” came from some of her poems that John Lennon was reading at that time. The poems began with the word “imagine”: “imagine a raindrop, imagine a goldfish”. Ono said,”When I was a child in Japan during the Second World War my brother and I were terribly hungry. I imagined delicious menus for him and he began to smile. If you think something is impossible, you can imagine it and make it happen.”
     In an interview just before he died, Lennon admitted that Yoko deserved credit for “Imagine”. He said, “A lot of it – the lirics and the concept – came from her, from her book of poems, imagine this, imagine that”. Lennon said that he was “too macho” to share the credit with her at that time.
     Ono said that some of the song was written when they were flying across the Atlantic and the rest was written on the piano in their bedroom at their home in England. Ono said, “The song speaks about John’s dream for the world. It was something he really wanted to say.” “Imagine” became a popular song for peace activists everywhere.
     In March 2002 the airport in his home town of Liverpool was re-named John Lennon Airport. A sign above the main entrance has a line from “Imagine”: “Above us only sky”.

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we're grey and old
'Cause I've been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold

So when I'm lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel that love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

Chorus

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I'll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

Chorus

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead
