Read the text and decide if the statements (1-6) below are true or false.                                                                    

Mississippi Delta Blues and Heritage

Think about all the emotions expressed in the music you listen to: joy, happiness, loneliness, nervousness, and, of course, sadness. Music with sad themes is often called the blues.

Blues music developed in the USA among Southern blacks after the Civil War. When slaves were brought to America from Africa, they brought their musical traditions with them. Mixed with folk and popular music of whites, these African musical traditions developed into the blues.

The blues is believed to have originated in the Mississippi Delta, a region in northern Mississippi between the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers. This is a rural area where the poorest black people lived. The sadness of their lifestyle was expressed in the blues. The conditions in this area – poverty, racism, difficult working situations – led many blacks to go north, to cities such as Memphis, Chicago, St Louis and Detroit.

The blues didn’t disappear from the Mississippi countryside, however, and in 1978, the Mississippi Delta Blues and Heritage festival was founded to celebrate and promote the blues and the culture. Now it is the oldest and largest blues festival in the South, with 20,000 visitors and performances 

1) The blues is the music with sad themes.

Read the text.


Just The Two of Us is my favourite book. It is about ‘different’ people, and it has changed the way I think about things.

 The book tells the story of two American boys, Joe and Barney. They live in Wyoming. Joe is tall, strong and confident. He plays baseball for the school team and he has lots of friends. Barney’s life is very different, and he is lonely. He was born with one leg shorter than the other, and he feels embarrassed because he has to wear special shoes. For this reason, he doesn’t want to play sport with the other boys – he is afraid they will laugh at him. He prefers spending his free time alone in the woods, and he watches and listens to the animals and birds.

 One summer, Joe goes hiking alone in the woods. When he sees a wolf in front of him, he is scared

and he runs through the trees, but he falls and breaks his leg. He lies there all night and all the next day, with no food or water. The noises around him terrify him.

 Back in the town, Barney hears that Joe is missing and he decides to do something to help. He leaves his house in the middle of the night to find Joe, but he doesn’t tell his parents. He cycles to the woods and spends hours there, looking for Joe. It is dark, but he isn’t afraid because he knows the place very well. Before morning he finds Joe, and their summer of adventures continues.

This exciting story, with its beautiful descriptions of Wyoming, shows us that people can surprise us.
