Part 2

[Track 10] Listen to the radio programme about Steve Biko. There are five mistakes in the text below. Listen and correct them.

On todays programme we are looking at another person whose bravery was incredible. Steve Biko is probably best known because of the film Cry Freedom by South African politician, Donald Woods. Steve Biko was born in Cape Province on 18 December 1946 just a few months before the National Party came to power in South Africa. He went to law school at the University of Natal in Durban, but as a black student he could only study in the non-European section of the university. He became involved in politics and was one of the founders of the South African Students Organization (SASO), an all-student organization. He believed that black students should be accepted on their own terms as an integral part of the South African government. In 1973 the government banned SASO and restricted Bikos freedom of politics and his movement. In 1977 Biko was arrested and taken to Port Elizabeth, where he died in prison. He was only 31 when he died and may well have become as important in South Africa as Nelson Mandela.

 

 

Reading

Part 1

Read the letter page from a magazine below. Are these sentences true (T), false (F) or not given (NG)?

(1) Joanne Kingsley suffers from demophobia.

(2) Identifying the causes of a panic attack is the cure for the problem.

(3) Among many things Anwad is scared of some pets.

(4) Yoga relaxes the body and therefore gets rid of all phobias.

(5) If Anwads wife doesnt understand his problems he should leave her.

 

 

Dear Dr Sachs

I think I might have a phobia, but I dont know what of. Often when Im walking down the street I will suddenly feel anxious, my heart will start beating quickly and I will feel faint. The thing is I know Im not frightened of open spaces or of meeting people, so what could it be? It doesnt happen all the time, but just in certain places.

Joanne Kingsley

 

Dear Joanne,

Yes, it does sound as though you might have a phobia. Certainly the symptoms are very common and it sounds as though you suffer from mild panic attacks. Its also quite frightening when you dont know what causes it them. In fact, that might be part of the problem if you knew what you were scared of it would be easier to confront it. I think its worth you sitting down and trying to think what is around you when these things happen. It might be demophobia (the fear of crowds), or possibly something like cyclophobia (the fear of bicycles). If you can find a common factor that occurs when you feel anxious it might be easier to overcome your fear.

Dr Sachs

 

Dear Dr Sachs

I know what Im scared of, the list is very long. Im scared of flying, of heights, of spiders and of cats. My wife thinks Im silly and she often tries to scare me by bringing in spiders from the garden or talking about going on holiday by plane. The thing is, just thinking about these things makes me frightened. So, what can I do to help myself?

Anwad Khan

Dear Anwad,

Poor you. It sounds as though you are really having a hard time. Im sure if you sat down with your wife and talked to her she would try to help you. Another thing you can do is to try and relax more. It might be a good idea to take up yoga or some other exercise like swimming. One problem we have when we become frightened is that our body becomes tense, if you can relax then this will help.
