The history of the cinema began in the early 19th century. At that time, scientists
discovered that when a sequence of still pictures were set in motion, they could give the
feeling of movement. In the first two decades of its existence, the cinema developed
rapidly. In those early days, films were little more than moving photographs, usually
about one minute in length. By 1905, however, films were about five or ten minutes long.
They used changes of scene and camera positions to tell a story, with actors playing
60
character parts. In the early 1910s, audiences were able to enjoy the first long films, but
it was not until 1915 that the cinema really became an industry. From that time, film
makers were prepared to make longer and better films and build special places where
only films were shown. The cinema changed completely at the end of the 1920s. This was
when sound was introduced. The change began in America and soon spread to the rest of
the world. As the old silent films were replaced by spoken ones on the screen, a new
cinema form appeared, the musical cinema.

VIII/ READING: CITY SCENES
In many countries around the world, more and more people live in the cities. Cities
share many characteristics, but are also different from country to country
MEXICO: Mexico cities are modern but have traditional Indian and Spanish influences.
The most important buildings are around a central square, which also serves as a place to
meet with friends. There are outdoor market places, where people can find almost
anything they need. On Sunday, parks are a popular place for family cutting. Many people
move to Mexico City from rural areas. It has a lot of excitement, but also lots of traffic and
air pollution.
JAPAN: Japan’s cities also have a mix of traditional and modern characteristics. There are
tall offices and apartment buildings as well as traditional wooden houses. Many people
prefer to live near the centre of cities, but because houses there are expensive, they
often commute from the suburbs. Traffic, pollution
and crowds are problems. However, there is little crime, and even very crowded cities
have many parks and gardens
AUSTRALIA: Although 80% of Australians live near cities, the cities are not as large as
those in other countries. Most people live in the houses in the suburbs - not in
apartments. The suburbs are usually have their own churches, schools and shopping
centres. They also have recreational facilities. In large cities, like Sidney, the suburbs are
not often far from the centre of town. Because many people commute to work, traffic is
slow and there are many traffic jams.
Exercise 1: Circle the meaning of each words/phrase in italics.
1/ When cities share many characteristics,
a. many of their characteristics are similar
b. they are very different
