Q
Millie is 17 years old and lives in Miami. She
has got 204 friends and she makes two or three more
friends every week. About 20 of her friends also live in
Miami. Some go to the same school, and others go to
the same music clubs and sports centres. She often sees
them. The others live in other cities and other countries:
England. Canada, Japan ... She never meets these
friends, but she talks to them on the Internet. They arc
her ‘MySpace Friends’.
H Z ! Because of websites like MySpace, Yahoo 360 and
Bebo, people can make friends online. These websites are
w ry popular all over the world, especially with young
people. Users have got their own homepage. They give
information about themselves. They write letters for iheir
webpage, show photos and give opinions. They write
about their favourite films, music and TV programmes.

important part of their image. Ii says: ‘This is me! I've
got something to say. These things - and these people
- are important in my life.’ And these websites are also an
easy way to talk to a lot of different people. That is why
teenagers like these •friends’ websites.

Work in pairs. Tell your partner about a friend of yours, or a
member of your family. Describe:

But some people arc worried that these websites
aren't safe. For example, it is impossible to know that the
information on a homepage is true. Perhaps the 16-yearold girl you talk to online is really a 40-year-old man. So
here is some advice.

1 his/her appearance
2 his/her personality, with examples of his/her behaviour

0 3 Keep your webpage private. (Only friends can
see a private webpage.) Do not put photos of yourself
on your webpage. Do not meet people that you only
know because of (he website. And finally, remember that
online friends are fun, but they are not the same as real
friends.

Australians love sport. They play it, they talk about it and they
watch it on TV. Australian weather is perfect for sport, and there
are thousands of great beaches, so swimming is very popular. The
population of Australia is only about 20 million, but many of the
best sportsmen and sportswomen in the world come from Australia.
Young people in Australia are very active. More than 60% of
children go to sports clubs. They also do activities with friends: for
example, skateboarding, cycling and rollerbladmg.
