Electricity is such a part of our everyday lives that we rarely think twice when we switch on the light or turn on the radio. At night, roads are brightly lit, enabling people and traffic to move freely. In the home, many labour-saving devices are powered by electricity. Even when we turn on our bedside lamp and are fast asleep, electricity is working for us, driving our refrigerators, heating our water, or keeping our rooms air-conditioned. Every day trains, trolleybuses and trams take us to and from work. We seldom bother to consider why or how they run - until something goes wrong.

In the summer of 1959, something went wrong with the power-plant that provides New York with electricity. Trains refused to move and people in them sat in the dark powerless to do anything; lifts stopped working, so that if you were lucky enough not to be trapped between two floors, you had the unpleasant task of finding your way down hundreds of flights of stares. Famous streets like Broadway in an instant became as gloomy and uninviting as the most remote back streets.

The only people who were not troubled by the darkness were the blind. One of the strangest things that occured during the power-cut was that fifty blind people led many sighted workers home.

When the lights came on again, hardly a person in the city can have turned on a switch without reflecting how great a servant he had at his finger-tips.

После чтения и перевода текста студент должен (на выбор):

  • или пересказать на английском языке содержание прочитанного отрывка,
  • или ответить по-английски на вопросы, связанные с содержанием текста:

  1. What part does electricity play in our everyday lives?
  2. Can you name any labour-saving devices which are powered by electricity?
  3. What happened in the summer of 1959?
  4. Who were the only people not troubled by the darkness?

Помимо ответов на вопросы экзаменаторов учащийся должен составить к тексту пять вопросов различных типов к тексту (общий, специальный, альтернативный, разделительный, вопрос к подлежащему):

  1. Did something go wrong with the power-plant that provides New York with electricity?
  2. When did something go wrong with the power-plant that provides New York with electricity?
  3. Did something go wrong with the power-plant in the summer or in the autumn of 1959?
  4. Something went wrong with the power-plant that provides New York with electricity, didn't it?
  5. What went wrong with the power-plant in the summer of 1959?
