1.1. Translate the text.
Alexander Graham Bell never planned to be an inventor; he wanted to be a musician or a teacher of deaf people.
Alexander's mother was a painter and a musician. His father was a well-known teacher. He developed a system that he called "Visible Speech", which he used to teach deaf people to speak.
In 1868, a terrible thing happened to the Bell family. Alexander's two brothers died of tuberculosis. Then Alexander became ill with the same disease. The doctor suggested a better climate, and the whole family moved to Canada. He became interested in the telegraph, and he tried to find the way to send musical sounds through electric waves. These experiments were not very successful.
After a year of rest, Alexander was offered a job at the School for the Deaf in Boston, Massachusetts. About this time, Alexander became interested in finding the way to send the human voice through an electric wire. The parents of some of the children whom he taught contributed money for equipment. He found an assistant, Tom Watson, who worked in an electrical shop and knew a lot about building electrical machines. Tom and Alexander worked together to build a machine that people could use to talk to one another over long distances.
After two years, the young men were becoming discouraged. Then, one day, when they were working on a new transmitter, Alexander spilled some acid on himself. Tom Watson, who was alone in another room, heard a voice. The voice was coming through a wire to the receiver on the table! The voice was Alexander Graham Bell's. It was saying, 'Come here, Mr. Watson! I want you!'
The spilled acid was forgotten when Tom and Alexander realized that their talking machine worked.
The first permanent telephone line was built in Germany in 1877. By 1915, a coast-to-coast telephone line was opened in the United States - 5440 kilometers from New York to San Francisco. Alexander Graham was invited to open the new line, and he asked his old friend, Tom Watson, to help. On the important day, January 25, 1915, Mr. Watson was in San Francisco and
Mr. Bell was in New York City. Everyone expected to hear a serious, scientific speech.
The words that Mr. Bell chose to say were 'Come here, Mr. Watson! I want you!'
