Anne and David are talking about an interesting question. Why do some people change their names? There can be many reasons. Hanna changed her name into Anne because she thought it would be easier for people to remember. On the other hand, David is thinking about changing his name to an unusual one because he wants to be different.
People have a lot of reasons for changing their names. Film stars, singers, sportsmen and some other famous people often change their names because they want names that are not ordinary, or that have special sound. They chose the “new names” for themselves instead of the names their parents gave them when they were born.
Some people have another reason for changing their names. They have moved to a new country and want to use a name that is usual there. For example, Li Kaiming changed his name to Ken Lee when he moved to the United States. He uses the name Ken at his job and at school. But with his family and Chinese friends, he uses Li Kaiming. For some people, using different names makes life easier in their new country.

One day, a farmer was walking along a road with his son Thomas. The father said, “Look! There’s a horseshoe. Pick it up and put it in your bag.” But Thomas said, “It isn’t worth the 5
trouble.” His father said nothing but he picked it up himself. When they got to a nearby town, they had a rest. There the farmer sold the horseshoe and with the few pennies he bought some cherries.
The father and the son continued their way. The sun was shining, and there wasn’t a horse or even a tree where they could have a rest. Thomas felt too thirsty to walk on. At this time, his father dropped a cherry on the ground and Thomas picked it up quickly and ate it. After a while, his father dropped another cherry and once again, his son lost no time in picking it up and putting it in his mouth.
And so they went on. The old farmer dropped the cherries and the son picked them up. When Thomas had eaten up all the cherries, his father said to him, “My dear son, if you had bent (弯腰) down early to pick up that horseshoe, it would not have been necessary for you to bend so many times for the cherries.

Farmers grow plants and animals on their farms. Is it also possible to have a farm in the sea? People in many countries grow freshwater fish from eggs. They move the small fish in lakes and rivers. The fish live and grow there. People go fishing in these lakes and rivers. They enjoy catching fish. Fish is also good food.
Now Japan grows saltwater fish. Most of them are yellowtail fish. The workers grow the fish from eggs. Every time they give food to the fish, they play tapes of music. The fish learn 6
that the music means food.
When the fish grow a little bigger, the Japanese put them in the sea near the land. The fish find some of their own food. The workers also give food to them while they play the same music as
usual. The fish swim there to find the food. In a few months the fish are large. The Japanese play the same music, and they can easily catch these fish in the sea.
The Japanese get about fifteen per cent of their seafood from farms in the sea.
