REAL ENGLISH (BIM )
Leaders and officials from more than 100 nations attended the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. More than 40,000 activists and political and business leaders were also there. The three-day conference in June marked the twentieth anniversary of the first UN Earth Summit, also held in Rio. That conference helped build support for the 1997 Kyoto agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Rio+20 conference sought to bring attention to seven major issues. The UN says jobs, energy and sustainable cities are of top importance. Food security, water, oceans and dealing with disasters are other issues basic to lifting people out of poverty. The mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, took part in a discussion among mayors of some of the world's largest cities. They talked about measures to cut greenhouse gasses. These gasses are known to trap heat and have been linked to climate change. Cities are responsible for up to 75 percent of the gases. Mr. Bloomberg said the world's mayors are taking the lead on issues like the environment and sustainability. He said, "Even as progress at national and international level has faltered, it's fair to say that world cities have forged ahead. And the reason for that is clear -- mayors." He called them "the great pragmatists on the world stage" and said they are directly responsible for the well-being for the majority of the world's people. He said mayors "just don't have the luxury to simply talk about change" and not deliver it.Mayors reported using electric vehicles, better street lighting and improved waste management to reduce cities' greenhouse emissions. Bindu Lohani is a top official with the Asian Development Bank based in the Philippines. The bank has promised billions to sustainable development. Mr. Lohani said Asia's fast growth places heavy pressure on the environment and society. He said the bank predicts that by 2050, more than 50 percent of the global economy will be in Asia. Some environmental activists complained that there were many promises of action at the Rio+20 conference, but few clear targets for reducing pollution and the use of natural resources.

Derly Johanna Barreto has these two resolutions: to speak English fluently and to get a job. Jiseon Kim also has two goals: to lose weight and improve speaking English. And Katie Chekalina has these resolutions: Don't eat meat. I'll take it easy. Then, to learn Spanish or Italian, and find my real love. The last ones will be the most difficult, she thinks. Rafa Mtz's main goal is finishing high school and getting into a university. Lola Wazqito Oktobrata says: I am going to get married and finish my undergraduate study with good results. And Uma Cherif is ready for the next step this year: a master's degree. Handri Permana has this resolution: Be more meaningful before my time's up on earth. And Handri has this advice for others: Have fun seriously in life!Dionel Paguirigan has fun playing the video game Defense of the Ancients, or DotA. Dionel says: My New Year's resolution is I want to spend more time on my studying than playing DotA.Refky Aditya's resolution is to not be lazy about studying anymore. And Nur Chanifah says: I want to be the best in my national examinations, to be a braver girl, and to take a scholarship abroad. Sharah Radinka offered this comment: My resolutions are to pass vocational school, get a scholarship and visit Singapore and Malaysia. And Sita Ayudha is thinking of Australia in twenty-twelve: I wish I could have a career abroad in my dreamland of Oz. And let's see, as I'm an optimist, I'm gonna make it real this year, hahaha.For VOA Special English, I'm Carolyn Presutti.Go to voaspecialenglish.com to read, listen and learn English with our programs and activities.

Songs for listening skills
An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...don't you think
A little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do think...

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

OVER THE SEA AND FAR AWAY
SHE´S WAITING LIKE AN ICEBERG
WAITING TO CHANGE
BUT SHE´S COLD INSIDE
SHE WANTS TO BE LIKE THE WATER

ALL THE MUSCLES TIGHTEN IN HER FACE
BURIES HER SOUL IN ONE EMBRACE
THEY´RE ONE AND THE SAME
JUST LIKE WATER

AND THE FIRE FADES AWAY
MOST OF EVERYDAY
IS FULL OF TIRED EXCUSES
BUT IT´S TO HARD TO SAY
I WISH IT WERE SIMPLE
BUT WE GIVE UP EASILY
YOU´RE CLOSE ENOUGH TO SEE THAT
YOU´RE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD TO ME

ON COMES THE PANIC LIGHT
HOLDING ON WITH FINGERS AND FEELINGS ALIKE
BUT THE TIME HAS COME
TO MOVE ALONG

AND THE FIRE FADES AWAY
MOST OF EVERYDAY
IS FULL OF TIRED EXCUSES
BUT IT´S TO HARD TO SAY
I WISH IT WERE SIMPLE
BUT WE GIVE UP EASILY
YOU´RE CLOSE ENOUGH TO SEE THAT
YOU´RE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD

CAN YOU HELP ME
CAN YOU LET ME GO
AND CAN YOU STILL LOVE ME
WHEN YOU CAN´T SEE ME ANYMORE

AND THE FIRE FADES AWAY
MOST OF EVERYDAY
IS FULL OF TIRED EXCUSES
BUT IT´S TO HARD TO SAY
I WISH IT WERE SIMPLE
BUT WE GIVE UP EASILY
YOU´RE CLOSE ENOUGH TO SEE THAT
YOU´RE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD
´OU´RE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD
YOU´RE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD TO ME
