Alice: Hi, Jerry, I heard you had fun with Peggy in Merry Park yesterday.

Jerry: Yes. We had a great time there. Why didn’t you come with us? We got there by bus in only ten minutes.

Alice: I know, but the ticket is more expensive on the weekend. Also, I’ve been there many times since it opened five years ago. Did you try the Dandelion Seat there? It’s so popular that people have to wait for over an hour to get a ride.

Jerry: You mean those flower-like umbrellas that fly high in the sky?

Alice: Yes. I enjoyed riding on the Dandelion Seat and looking over the city. It was a great experience.

Jerry: Eh... I liked taking the train to get around the park better. I don’t think it’s fun to ride in the air. I’d feel like I could fall down any time.

Alice: Maybe you would like it more at night. It’s wonderful to see the beautiful lights below your feet.

Daddy,

When I told you I want to marry Mike, you said a 22-year-old girl is too young to get married. You also think it’s dangerous to marry a man I’ve known for only one year. But I don’t think so. I’m smart and old enough to know Mike loves me, and we’ve known each other well enough to start a family.

Mike used to smoke a lot and wear long hair. But he stopped smoking because I hate the smell. He also cut his hair short because I don’t like men with long hair. Isn’t it great to marry a man who changes himself for me?

Amy


Amy,

I think you’ve known Mike long enough as a friend, but maybe not long enough to marry him. You’re still young, and I hope you can take more time to understand him better. Mike’s changes show he cares about you. But you both should know love doesn’t really mean changing or even losing oneself.

I’m worried about you because I love you. I never thought my little girl might leave me so early. But if you think you’re ready for a new life, I will see you off with smiles and best wishes.

Daddy

Judy: Hello, Ben. I came because I like your idea: when you give, you’re rich. I’m happy that I can do something for the Earth.

Thanks to globalization, we get to see movies from around the world. If anyone should feel most excited about globalization, it is US movie makers. A study in 2001 shows that, for every 100 people who go to the theater, 85 see US movies. This may be good news for US movie makers, but not for those in other countries.

Chart 1 shows the percentages (%) of US movies in five countries in 1984 and in 2001; Chart 2 shows the percentages (%) of domestic movies in the five countries in 1984 and in 2001. In Chart 1, we can see that US movies have been popular in foreign markets. In Chart 2, we can see that domestic movies in the five countries are not doing well in their domestic market. The falling market for domestic movies may be a serious problem, but there is something more important. When people welcome US movies with open arms, they in fact also say yes to the American way of thinking. Some people in these countries worry that what is lost may not just be their domestic market for domestic movies, but also their own way of thinking that has been passed down from parents to children.

Of all five countries, UK’s domestic movies have the smallest drop in percentage (%).
