Video and Questions [1 exercises] Ever since the day when Icarus and his father Dedalus made their wings of wax, man has dreamed of flying. He can swim like a fish, he can run like a cheetah, but without a machine, he cannot fly like a bird. Admittedly he can throw himself into the void, but free falling isn't the same thing as floating in the wind. Without wings, man finds himself deprived of one of the greatest sensations. Flying over mountains and following the thermal currents is indeed only possible in a hang-glider, and it's only in his dreams that man can be an eagle. Some people like to play at being human cannonballs because this number always impresses the crowd. The explosion must have made this man deaf: he can't hear the applause or the people warning him that his net has holes in it! With the invention of the airship at the beginning of the twentieth century, man was able to fly over cities and even overseas. Go left! Right! Straight on! No, turn around! Be careful you don't get airsick! Today, airplanes have reached such perfection that they can take people more or less anywhere, and more or less whenever they want, so long as there's a runway to land on. The number of airports is growing and these days every major city has one. Even in Hong Kong, where space is very limited, there's an airport. The runway is so narrow the pilots must really feel like they're landing on a matchstick! The helicopter is another means of air transportation. It is said that Leonardo da Vinci drew up the first plans for the rotary mechanism. This would perhaps explain the Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile: she must have thought the man painting her portrait was a madman! Flying machines! What a thought! But he who laughs last, laughs best. Da Vinci was right. Thanks to its blades, the helicopter can take off and land vertically. This vehicle is often used in emergencies. Jet planes are the fastest. They can fly so fast they can break the sound barrier. What a deafening noise! Don't bother looking up, it's already far away! A jet's like a sprinter who leaves his shadow behind when pulling away! For more peaceful traveling, with your head in the clouds, there are hot-air balloons. Filled with heated air, they get carried along by the winds. They rise serenely up into the sky and their passengers can admire the landscape that unfolds at their feet. You can also make flying objects at home. For most children, the paper plane is their first contact with aerodynamics. Man has been trying to defy gravity for a long time, and today he has found ways of taking advantage of it. Bungee jumping is an amazing sport with extreme sensations. Is this man the right way up or upside down? It doesn't look like he knows what his exact position is. Maybe he thinks he's turned into a human yo-yo! On Earth, Man has only known how to fly for a century, but maybe others elsewhere have more experience in the field. Who knows?

Video and Questions [1 exercises] Welcome to New York, in the State of New York, on the east coast of the United States! The Statue of Liberty is one of the American symbols as well known as Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse and yellow taxis. Here, in the business district of Wall Street, thousands of people hope to have the same dream come true: the American Dream. Here, in the heart of the Big Apple, in the middle of the most famous cityscape, people wait eagerly. They hope to become very rich overnight. New York at night seems like a real labyrinth of endless avenues and streets. The avenues are directed from north to south according to the ancient Roman system. The streets run, like the sun, from east to west. The city of New York was founded on the southern tip of Manhattan Island, which was bought from the Indians. After the War of Independence and with the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, the city was heavily developed. New York is a city built on granite, a very strong stone. This has helped the architects' work who, limited by space, have had to maximize every square inch by building upward. Fifth Avenue, with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, its shops and luxurious apartments, is one of the most famous avenues in the city. New York is not only home to a great number of movie stars, but is also herself the star of several movies. Woody Allen's film "Manhattan" is a homage to the city he loves. "West Side Story" was set here, as was "The Godfather", with Marlon Brando and Robert de Niro. And of course, everyone remembers King Kong climbing the Empire State Building. New York is also known for music. This town is as lively, as cosmopolitan and as innovative as this music. New York is the epicurean's paradise, since excellent restaurants and very fashionable nightclubs can be found here. However, the New Yorkers are said to be impolite people. Look at the traffic in the streets, we can only see a huge tide of yellow cabs! They accelerate and brake abruptly. Their passengers are in such a hurry to go dancing that they sometimes forget to say "hello" and "thank you", even though it's well known that Americans like saying "Have a nice day!" Just like any other city dweller, the New Yorker is stressed. Nevertheless, he can find a haven of peace in Central Park. But does he ever manage to relax and forget he's chasing the American Dream? Or is it rather that the American Dream is chasing him. . .? In the end, whether in New York, Paris, London, Madrid or Tokyo. . . we're all chasing a dream!
