Текст для аудирования
Speaker 1. Extreme sports have become very popular in the last few years and you often hear people talking about their experiences. They say it is the best thing in the world, a real adrenaline rush. But I'm afraid I can't judge as I have never tried them myself. I’ve only read about it. I'd probably enjoy it if I decided to take it up!
Speaker 2. I can't say I'm sporty at all. I think the last time I did any sport was about a month ago! And only played golf with a friend of mine. I like team sports and sports that you can enjoy without having to do too much. I don't want to do extreme sports at all—it wouldn't be my kind of thing!
Speaker 3. Last weekend I went windsurfing with my best friend, Steven. I’m getting quite good at it now. I first took up the sport two years ago and have even taken part in competitions. But, for me it's all about being adventurous and you need to try your hand at something new in order to push yourself to the limits. Actually, it's high time I found something different.
Speaker 4. Have you heard about speed flying? It's the most exciting new winter sport where you can glide by ski and through the air. It was first born in France but is now becoming popular in the rest of Europe. Once you learn how to paraglide and have all the necessary equipment, you can start lessons. It feels great flying at 70 km per hour! Try it for yourself!
Speaker 5. If you ask me, young people today are doing far too many extreme sports like bungee jumping and rock climbing. They are far too risky. What surprises me is that they don't care if they get hurt—they just go back and do it again and again. I remember the day when young people were happy to ride a normal bicycle or just go for a walks. It's so different now!
Speaker 6. Maybe I should take up a new sport that's a little bit different, a little bit more adventurous, but I’m not convinced that I need to go extreme. I get a lot of enjoyment out of ‘safer' sports like basketball and tennis. They might not be so exciting, but they really keep you fit. That's the most important thing for me.
