Hello, students. You now can learn about Lilac, an American teenager, as part of “American Teens Talk!” book. I suggest you read and listen to this section several times so you can improve your American English reading and listening comprehension skills. Don’t forget to respond to the prompts in the comments section below so that you can improve your writing skills as well.

Directions: Please respond to one of the prompts below in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
- Lilac is working and saving her money so that
she can buy a car, and she knows exactly the
kind of car that she wants. What would you like
to buy? (Please describe it very clearly.) Why do
you want to buy it?
- Lilac seems to want a very active life, and she
wants to do work that only men did in the past.
Does this seem good to you? Do you think that
working in the Army, the Air Force, or the fire
department would be a good career for her?
For you? Why?
