27/XX/20XX, 3.45 P.M.

A few days left till my trip to Wales and I’m starting to get nervous.
Today I’ve got one more email from tU2 asking if I’m good at cooking (I’m actually not) and how much time it would take me to learn to cook. “A single life is not enough,” I answered.
Why should a secret agent cook, I wonder?

Read the lists of ingredients and choose the correct option for each picture below the cards

In my mailbox, I’ve found some cases that agent tU2 sent me. I’m supposed to analyse other spies’ experiences so as to avoid their mistakes.

Listen to the story about an agent and choose the correct options

Carl Hans Lody


During the Second World War, Carl Hans Lody worked undercover for the Germans. He started serving the U.K. in order to collect information on the movements of the British fleet. Having fabricated a U.S. passport under a fake name, he managed to travel throughout Europe freely. This was a big advantage, so Lody became a great asset to the German intelligence services.
At the same time, he did not follow almost any rule in the spy’s guide. He was hanging around a British naval base or anti-aircraft facilities while asking very direct questions, such as “How many guns are needed to shoot down a German aircraft?” It obviously attracted attention of the British intelligence services.
Once Lody was even spotted making open drawings of a warship. After that, he was arrested and executed.

 

Carl Lody was
1. an American spy working in Germany.
2. a German spy working in Britain.
3. a British spy who started working for Germany.
4. a German spy working in the USA.

What made Lody a valuable spy was
1. the fact that he started serving Britain.
2.his dedication and a network of friends.
3. his ability to put precise questions.
4. his fake U.S. passport allowing him to travel throughout Europe.

Lody made some serious mistakes, namely he
1. was not careful enough while performing secret operations;
2.used a fake U.S. passport and spoke with a typical British accent;
3. put too straightforward questions;
4. did a poor drawing of a warship.

Listen to the report and tick the facts that were mentioned

The CIA communications failure


The CIA reported on a “catastrophic” secret communications failure between 2009 and 2013.
The internet-based communications platform used by both officers and field agents turned out to be insecure. Though it was initially designed for soldiers in war zones, the system was adopted by secret agents due to its simplicity.
Cracks began when Iran started to look for moles. Iranian spies were able to use Google as a search tool to find secret CIA websites and infiltrate the CIA spy network.
As Iran and China had traded technical information with each other, a network of 30 secret agents was uncovered. Beijing had managed to break into a second temporary communications system and see every single agent the CIA had placed in the country. One former official claims that “our biggest insider threat is our own institution”.

The reported secret communication failure
1. happened because of data leakage from the headquarters;
2. happened within the U.S. intelligence service;
3. resulted in many spies being uncovered.

Iran and China took advantage of the insecure communication in order to
1. infiltrate the CIA network.
2. arrest the American spies.
3. get rid of the same problem in their own communication systems.

Some of the causes of failure were
1. the use of an internet platform designed for a wider range of users;
2. the intelligence services of other countries;
3. the CIA’s negligence.
