James Bond retelling
| When James Bond got back to his hotel room it was midnight. His windows were closed and the air-conditioning was on. Bond switched it off and opened the windows, then had a shower and went to bed.
At 3:30 he was dreaming, when suddenly he woke up. He listened. There was a noise coming from the window. Someone was moving behind the curtains. James Bond took his gun from under his pillow, got quietly out of bed, and crept slowly along the wall towards the window. Someone was breathing behind the curtains. Bond pulled them back with one quick movement and saw a blond
He asked her what the hell she was doing there.
Bond put down his gun and tried to pull her through the open window. Bond quickly led her across the room to the bathroom. He turned on the light and the shower. They sat down on the side of the bath.
Mary said that some message had come and a top KGB man was staying at that hotel.
Bond said he knew it and that he had to get her out of there. Bond turned off the shower and opened the bathroom door. A voice came from the darkness of the bedroom. It was Scaramanga. He asked them to put their hands behind their necks and turned on the lights. His golden gun was pointing directly at James Bond.
I've been waiting for an hour
And she's not here yet
Maybe she's stood me up
It's been raining all the time and my hair is wet
Now I feel fed up
I've been seeing her for over two weeks now
I thought she was mine, all mine
We've been going out dancing
almost every night
I thought everything was fine

| Wherever you are in the world you can always get access['ækses]to the Internet or find a text that you are interested innot only becauseit will provide you withwords and structures you are likely to need but also with motivation to actively study. When you read a text you should look out for words and phrases that you can use in your own English later. It’s a good idea to carry a smallnotebook so that you can write down any examples that might be useful. The first time you read a text it's usuallybest not to stop when you see some unknown word. You have to understand the general meaning of the text. When you have finished reading you should go over the bits you are not sure about. If the problem is an unknown word, look it up in a dictionary. However you must promise yourself that you will open and use this notebook at least once a week because the real key to learning English is to practise, practise, practise!
