High Flyer – Upper Intermediate
Ex.5 / page 62

1.      True. He made them shudder with fear, he was new to their town and he was mad.
2.    False. They were funny and there is no suggestion that they scared the children. Also, we know that ‘Nieves was different’ and did scare the children.
3.    False. The author thought Nieves was chasing her, but in fact he only happened to be following her and was going to her house to see her father. Her mother indicates that her daughter was imagining things.
4.    True (ls. 47-9)
5.     True (ls. 50-2)
6.    False. Nieves was a kind friendly man who was very fond of children.
7.     False. Not quite, he never stopped talking to imaginary listeners, but the people in the town accepted him.

Ex.6 / page 63

1.      Because they weren’t playing too. They wore white and stood stiffly on the verandah so they were probably wealthy and not allowed to mix with ordinary children.
2.    She felt he was deliberately following her and trying to catch her. She imagined this because the children in their fantasies had come to see him as a very mysterious lunatic and someone to be frightened of.
3.    She seems to have felt embarrassed by her daughter’s behaviour. She probably thought the girl was being very silly because by that point she and her husband trusted Nieves.
4.    He probably became accepted when saw that he was kind and friendly, and when he stopped being a novelty in the town. No doubt people got used to his funny ways.

1.      Four sentences (with two clauses each)
2.    First she writes about his general appearance, but arouses the reader’s interest by mentioning that Nieves was ‘mysterious’, a personal opinion of his behaviour/ character. Then she gives details of some of his physical characteristics. Finally she talks about his character.
