English for Teens (Mihaela Chilarescu) Exercise 1 Introduce the groups of words below the text in the numbered gaps. There are two which you do not need to use. There have always been children who have spread their arms wide, and run over the windy green hills of the world, hoping and hoping that their running might suddenly become flying. There have always been men who have gazed up at the birds skimming through the air, and have wished and wished that they might fly, too. But for thousands and thousands of years, all the hoping and the wishing remained just hoping and wishing, (I) Thrilled by the same story, two American brothers whose name was Wright and (2) took up gliding.

Today there is always the hum of an engine or the flash of wings somewhere in the sky - (6) man has learned the secret of flight.
