LISTENING COMPREHENSION TEST

History Jokes

His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby boy. He dropped his tools and ran to the boy. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Flem­ing saved the boy from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.

The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's place. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy farmer Fleming had saved.

"I want to repay you", said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life". "No, I can't accept payment for what I did", the Scottish farmer replied, waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel. "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked. "Yes", the farmer replied proudly. "I'll make you a deal. Let me take him and give him a good education. If the fellow is anything like his father, he'll grow to a man you can be proud of.

And that he did. In time, farmer Fleming's son graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

Elizabeth  Blackwell  was  born in  England  in  1821, and emigrated  to  New  York  City  when she  was  ten. One  day  she  decided  that  she  wanted  to  become  a  doctor.

Returning  to  the  USA  she  found  it  difficult  to  start  her  own  practice  because  she  was  a  woman. By  1857  Elizabeth  and  her  sister, also  a doctor, along  with  another  female  doctor, could  open  a  new hospital, the  first  for  women  and children.

He  had  no  wife  and  he  lived  in  a  very  large  house  with  a  housekeeper  called  Mrs. Macready  and  three  servants.

Nowadays  people  hold  parades  on  Halloween.
