Reading skills - TYPICAL TEENAGERS!


Klausimas #1


TYPICAL TEENAGERS!

     In Britain there is an expression 'typical teenager'. This is usually said by adults to mean that teenagers are lazy, irresponsible and rude to their parents. But in fact, British teenagers in the 1990s probably work hard at school, respect their parents and plan for their future. Of course, there isn't really any such thing as typical teenager, but we look at some of the things that are important to British teenagers.

     Studious and serious?
     A recent survey* showed that teenagers work much harder than they did 10 years ago. In 1986, 43 per cent of 14-15-year old boys and 35 per cent of girls did no homework after school. In 1996, the figure had fallen to 32 per cent of boys and 26 per cent of girls. Many British teenagers say that they like school.
     Adam, aged 15, says, 'I like meeting up with friends and extending my knowledge'. Sarah, aged 14, says it's important because it gives you the skills for life. Teenagers think a lot about the future: 57 per cent worry about getting a job when they finish their studies. Jamie', aged 16, says, 'You know you can't walk out of school into a job.'
 
     Though school is important to many teenagers, other things can be more important. Last year's GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) results were published on the same day as the new Oasis album arrived in the shops. Many 16-year-olds went to buy a copy of the album before they got their results. Paul, aged 16, said, 'I don't care about my results - this is more important.'
 
     Music and money make the world go round
     Paul isn't the only teenager who cares more about music than education. Music is the most important thing in many British teenagers' lives. Some teenage boys spend more than £50 a month on music. Money is also important to teenagers. Most of them are given between £4 and £5 pocket money a week by their parents. Some also have jobs like paper rounds and baby-sitting. Katherine, aged 13, is too young to have a job, but she is doing a lifeguard course so she can work when She's old enough. (You have to be 14 to have a part-time job in Britain.)

     Smoking and drinking
     Parents who worry about their children smoking or taking drugs don't need to worry so much - 70 per cent of British teenagers neither smoke nor want to try it. Most teenagers are against drugs. After Liam Gallagher from Oasis had received a warning for possessing drugs, 43 per cent of teenagers lost respect for him. Most teenagers do drink alcohol - about 80 per cent - but most of them only drink occasionally at family parties and weddings.
 
     Parents - a teenagers best friends?
    Since the 1950s teenagers have been supposed to rebel against their parents. But parents today understand teenagers a lot better and have better relationships with their children.
Angela, aged 18, says, "I have a lot of respect for my mum. I know I don't always know best. Stuart, also aged 18, says, 'Children aren't rejecting* their parents. We are more responsible than in the fifties -we can stay out until midnight, more teenagers own cars.'

survey - study, research; to reject - to refuse, not to accept
