INTRODUCTION
The Form One Topic #01, “Listening to and Understanding simple texts on events” focuses on helping students answer the questions on simple oral texts which talk about various events in our daily life. These events happen as we undertake many activities every day. Some of these events are parties (like birthday parties), wedding ceremonies, accidents, cooking, travelling, studying and so on. 

READING AND LISTENING
A. Listen to the following text as it is read and then answer oral/written questions that follows:

I live at Magomeni village. The highway passes through our village. Our house is near this highway. Many accidents happen in this road. At least every week there is one accident. Many accidents happen during holidays like Christmas and New Year when people become many. I witnessed one accident. It was motorcycle accident. The motorcycle commonly known as ‘BodaBoda’ was crossing the road. Suddenly, one lorry was moving fast. The brakes of the ‘Bodaboda’ failed at the middle of the road. The lorry approached him and crashed him. It was not easy to recognize his body. I felt very sorry for him.
ORAL QUESTIONS:
  1. What passes through the village?
