29. února 2016 v 19:35 |  English story
Připravila jsem si pro vás novou rubriku ENGLISH STORY! Tato rubrika bude obsahovat příběh psaný v angličtině, který bude rozdělen na 16 částí, tak snad se vám bude líbit. A jdeme na první epizodu.

"I'd like to thank you all for coming to Teen Talent." Heston Parks stood on a stage in front of about three hundred excited teenagers from all over London. "Being a rock star is not easy. I only managed it for 35 long years. Now, it is your turn. Next week we're gonna have three nights, with around 30 bands each night. Only two bands from each evening will go to the final. The winner of the final will win five thousand pounds, and a management contract with me and my lovely wife, Summer.

There were cheers and applause from the people in the large hall. Heston continued. "Now I'm sure we've got some great talent here in this room. but don't forget, you just have one song - one original song - to impress u. I'm not in the business to help karaoke singers. I want talent. So register with us, and come back next week and show us what you can do!" There was another big cheer and applause from the crowd in front of Heston. Every one of three hundred people was sure that they had the talent to impress the amazing Heston Parks.

Sitting in a café that evening were four teenagers, buzzing with excitement about the competition. "Five thousand pounds!" said Chelsea. "Wow, we can do some serious shopping with that kind of money!"
"Yes, we could invest the money in some new-equipment," suggested Jack.
"Er, guys, aren't you forgetting something?" asked Daniel, a little frustrated.

They were talking about how to spend the money, rather than preparing for the competition.
"We need a song - an original song. They don't grow on trees."
"Daniel's right," said Holly. "We need to focus on the song and the music.

"So, how did it go?" Summer Parks kissed her husband on the cheek.
"Usual bunch of wannabes," said Heston, hanging up his fake leather jacket.
"Ah, you enjoy it really. All those lovely teenagers, listening to your every word: it must Heston smiled. "One or two."

NEXT DAY ...

"Where is she?" Holly, Daniel and Jack were waiting in their music practice room. Chelsea was late again.

"She probably still going her hair," said Daniel. "I heard that she ..."
"Hi, guys! Sorry I'm late, but look!" Chelsea hald up a piece of paper - some lines of text written on it. "I have just written our song. The song that's gonna win us five thousand pounds!"

The reaction from the others was not what Chelsea expected. Didn't they realise how difficult it was to write a hit song?

"Would you like to sing it for us?" suggested Holly. "If you have some idea of the melody."

"Sure, it's not one hundered percent ready, but I can give it a go." Chelsea looked up at Jack, Holly and Daniel and laughed nervously. "I feel like I'm on one of those talent shows with three judges."

"Just relax," said Jack. "We know this is not final version."

Chelsea held the paper in front of her and started singing. "Ooooooh, baby. Oooooh, yeah, baby. Come on let's party, oh yeah, let's party, come on, let's party tonight. oooooh, ooooh, ooooooooooh ..."

Daniel, Holly and Jack looked at each other. No one knew what to say.

"So, what did you think? I know it isn't perfect yet, but ..."

"I think your voice complements the song very well," said Jack

"Hey, thanks, Jack. What about you Daniel? Holly?"

"Um, Chelsea," began Holly. "What I think Jack is trying to say is that the song, and your voice are both, what's the word ...?"

"Painful? Bad? Terrible?" suggested Daniel.

"Yes, all of those," said Holly. "We're sorry, Chelsea, but I don't think that's the ind of song we're looking for."

"Sorry?" cried Chelsea. "You'll be the ones that are sorry. I'm gonna win that competition. You guys just haven't got a chance without me!"

"Chelsea, hang on a minute." said jack "We can ..."

But it was too late. Chelsea had left the room, slamming the door behind her.


DISCUSSION:
A) What title would you give this episode?
B) Do you think Chelsea will do something nasty to her friends?
C) What do you think is going to happen?
D) Do you think the band will be able to work without her?

Tak jsem zvědavá na vaše reakce na tuto novou rubriku a konkrétně na tuto episodu. Dále bych ráda věděla, jestli se vám líbí, že vydávám i v angličtině, protože angličtina je můj oblíbený jazyk a někdy jen tak začnu mluvit v angličtině a ani si to neuvědomím (Letos budu dělat i další Cambridské zkoušky, ale o tom bude taky článek). A ještě mi do komentářů napište, jak byste odpověděli na otázky z diskuse.

Kiss vaše Káťa:)
