there are only about 1,000 inhabitants. In winter, temperatures
are normally around -10C. The nights are long and there are
only six hours of daylight, so why do tourists visit Jukkasjrvi
in winter? Well, its quiet: there isnt any traffic and there arent
any noisy shopping centres. Theres a small restaurant with
local food and a museum with a souvenir shop. But the real
attraction is the amazing Ice Hotel.

History
The American Civil War
The abolition of slavery is a very important event in the history of the United
States of America. It is also the reason for the American Civil War between 11
southern states in favour of slavery, and 25 northern states, wanting to abolish it.
To continue with slavery, the South declares its independence from the North
and forms the Confederate States of America. The President of the USA,
Abraham Lincoln, does not want the South to be independent.
He wants the USA to remain as one country and he wants liberty for the slaves.
War starts in April 1861 and the conict lasts for four years.
An estimated 620,000 soldiers and many civilians die
before the North wins in the spring of 1865.
The result is the total abolition of slavery in the USA.

Read the text and answer the question.


What is the reason for the beginning of the American Civil War?

Physical Education
Rugby
Rugby is rst played in 1823, when a student at a prestigious school in
the town of Rugby in England picks up the ball with his hands during
a game of football and starts running. As the students start to play this
form of football more and more frequently, they invent the rules that
are still followed to this day.
Rugby is a sport played by two teams of 15 players each with a ball
shaped like a big egg. They score points by kicking the ball over
a high bar, which is like a giant letter H. Players also score points by
putting the ball down over the goal line. This is called a try.
Today rugby is more popular than football in some parts of the world.
The most important international teams are Argentina, Australia, South
Africa, England, France, New Zealand, Scotland and Wales. These and
other teams compete for the Rugby World Cup every four years.

Read and listen. Answer the question.


How many players compete in a game of rugby?

used by half a million people as their mother tongue. It
is also one of the ofcial languages of the European

Art
Architecture
Frank Gehry is a well-known architect. Born in Toronto, Canada, this architect has
designed some of the most iconic and most unusual buildings in the world.
His designs are inuenced by the sea. Gehrys buildings are angular,
to represent sh, and undulating. This symbolizes the waves. He also uses
a lot of steel a very strong metal and glass. These materials reect
the light in a similar way to the sun shining on water.
His architectural style is known as deconstructivism and, at rst, his work
looks very chaotic and surreal. His buildings, however, are extremely ordered
and well-planned.
His most famous design is the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. This important
art gallery is loved around the world because of Frank Gehrys design.
He is also the architect responsible for the Marques de Riscal hotel in Alava.

overseas. The New Zealand School of Music is also based in Wellington.
New Zealands most famous musical export is the opera singer Kiri Te Kanawa,
who appears on stage around the world. She performs with famous artists such as
Jos Carreras and she sings to royalty. She is also a Grammy award winner.
A soprano with a high singing voice, Kiri Te Kanawa is of Maori origin.
The Maoris are the native people of New Zealand and their traditional music
uses special instruments, such as utes made of animal bones, trumpets made
of sea shells and drums made of wood and the skin of sharks.
Some of New Zealands biggest rock, hip-hop and folk
groups combine Maori music with European inuences.
