After water, coffee is probably the most popular drink in the world. Coffee has man
properties \*
that are good for your health. Drinking coffee can help reduce the chances of some cancers, stomach and
neurological diseases, type 2 diabetes, and even heart disease.
Coffee has had a long and interesting history on its road to becoming the much-loved drink that it is today.
The coffee bush was first discovered in Africa in the 9th century. The coffee berries that grow on the bushes
contain coffee beans which can be made into a drink. The recipe for this drink was passed from Africa to the
Middle East, to Europe, and then to the Americas.
Even though the drink we know as coffee is well known all around the world, most countries have their own
special way of making it. 'Cowboy coffee' is made in Finland and Norway by mixing coffee and boiling water
together in a kettle and pouring out the liquid into a cup without the grounds. Turkish coffee is made by
mixing very finely ground coffee and sugar in a small pot with a long handle called an ibrik. The ibrik is held
over a fire and then removed when the coffee comes to the boil. The mixture is poured into a small ceramic
cup and drunk slowly, Ieaving the grounds at the bottom. Italians typically drink small cups of espresso every
day and usually don't even sit down when they order it; they drink it and leave. Many people in the U.S. have
an electric coffeemaker which uses a filter to separate the water from the coffee. Hot water drips through the
grounds and comes out as the drink they know and love. There is even a way to make coffee using a roasted
coconut and the milk inside it!
Whichever way you prefer your daily cup of coffee, there's no doubt about it, coffee is something the whole
world loves!

Stan Lee: Heromaker
Stan Lee is an American comic book creator. He has created many famous comics over the years, and is
responsible for some of the most popular superheroes that we know today. Some of Lee's more well-known comics aiE
Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Iron Man, the Hulk, Daredevil, the Avengers and Captain America.
Lee started working at Timely Comics, which he turned into his own company, Marvel Comics, and later Marvel
Entertainment. He was
19 when he became an assistant editor and started writing texts for Captain America. When
he was 20, Lee joined the U.S. military. There he spent most of his time writing manuals, training films, slogans, and
even drawing cartoons.
In the 1950s, Lee's main comic book competitor, DC Comics, renewed the interest in comics, which prompted Lee
to create more characters of his own. Lee created heroes that were not perfect and had human characteristics like vanity
and greed. In this first wave ofnew characters, Lee introduced the world to the Fantastic Four, a group that often argued
with one another, the Incredible Hulk, a man whose temper was uncontrollable, Iron Man, a businessman who was at
times greedy and selfish, and finally, Spider-Man, a young man who wanted to help make the world a better place, despite
his own limitations. The change from the idealistic superhero to the more realistic hero helped the average reader identify
with the characters more. Throughout his career, many of his comics have been developed into films, and he also started
his own company, Stan Lee Entertainment. He has also appeared as a character in many comic books, made appearances
in films and TV shows and written an autobiography. In 2O07,Lee received perhaps the highest honour a comic fan
could: an action figure was created in his likeness and debuted at Comic-Con International.

When I got my first
job, there weren't many choices available for women. At the time, girls were
expected to stay at home and help raise the children and take care ofthe house. So the only
job that was available for me then was as a waitress at a local restaurant. My parents knew the
owner, so he agreed to let me work there a couple nights a week. I started working there when I
was 16. My parents thought I was too young, but I was really excited to get out of the house and
make my own money. It was a good job, and I had a really nice boss. Plus, it was fun, because all
my friends from high school would come in the evenings and I was able to hang out with people
I knew while I worked. It was the perfect job!
I spent a lot of time in my dadt dental office as a child. Even when I was very young, I
understood how things worked there and I helped out whenever I could. So, everyone knew
that someday I would follow in my fathert footsteps and take over the family business.
After I got my degree in Dentistry, I started working in my dadt practice as his partner
until he retired a few years later. I learnt a lot from my dad and from watching him in
surgery. I learnt how to love my job and be really good at it. I'm glad I didn't have to go to
a bunch of interviews. Now, my son helps out at the office and it seems he has already decided on his future career. What
can I say? Dentistry runs in our blood.
My first job in the 'real world,' was really hard to get. I don't know what the problem was; I mean
I had my Master's degree and all the necessary qualifications and I was hard working. Still, no one
wanted to hire me. Maybe it's because I had so little real-world experience. I went to at least three
job interviews every week for more than six months. It was a lot of driving around for nothing
and it was very tiring. Not having a job for that long was really stressful, because I kept eating
away at my savings so I could pay rent and bills. Eventually, I did manage to find a
with a
good company. My salary was a lot more than I expected, so I guess in the end, the wait finally
paid off!
I consider myself pretty lucky when it comes to my life. I'm22,I've just
graduated from university, and I already have a great job. I design websites. It's funny, actually. The
day I got my degree, I put my CV on Monster.com, and within a few hours, I had a few companies
interested in me. I decided on one and we had a brief phone interview and that was that. I e-mailed
them my portfolio, they liked what they saw and hired me. They didnt even need to meet me! The
best part is I can work from home and they pay my salary right into my bank account and I never
even have to leave my house. The only problem is I still live with my parents. So itt really time I
did something about that. I'm tired of my friends making fun of me for my mum still cooking for
me and doing my laundry! But hey, with this great new job, now I can afford to live on my own.

Goa is a natural paradise which offers travellers who need a break from city life an opportunity to experience nature at its
best. If you want to combine a holiday with conservation work, this is the ideal place to go to. I spent two weeks at a nature
conservation centre in Goa and it was one of the best holidays I've ever been on.
The conservation centre, which serves as a field station for biologists and ecologists, was set up so that they can
do research and check the development of various plants and wildlife. In addition, the centre tries to make the local
communities in the region aware of environmental issues. There are also volunteers at the centre who help with
conservation activities in the area.
After a two-day training course, I started working with the team responsible for the conservation of sea turtles. My role
was to collect data on the turtles and also to talk to people in the local community about things they can do to help protect
the turtles. I spent most of my days walking up and down the beaches observing and writing down everything I noticed
about the turtles. At sunset, I would eat dinner with the other team members and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
In my free time, I went swimming in the sea and I also went on organised nature walks into the jungle. This was a
truly amazing experience as I got to see all kinds of interesting wildlife up close. However, the best thing was visiting the
waterfalls; they were simply wonderful. I also took a yoga class which was offered at the centre.

Endangered Species Watch
The Orangutan is a great ape which is found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra in South East Asia.These gentle great
apes are very intelligent and, like humans, they have the ability to think and learn. They are the largest tree living mammal,
with longer arms than other great apes such as gorillas and chtmpanzees.
Orangutans are an endangered species because of illegal hunting, loss of their habitat and being kidnapped from the wild
and sold as pets. In fact, it is possible that orangutans living in the wild may become extinct very soon. The loss of their
habitat has occurred for various reasons. As the populations of countries in South East Asia have grown, so has the need for
land and food. The rainforests have been cut down to clear land for housing and agriculture. In particular, whole sections
of rainforest have been cleared to plant palm trees which produce palm oil. As a result, the orangutans have no home. In
addition, natural disasters such as flooding and forest fires have also contributed to the destruction ofthe rainforests.
The survival of orangutans depends mainly on the efforts of various conservation organisations which are working
hard to protect them. For example, Camp Leakey is a research station in the Tanjung Puting National Park in Borneo;
here orangutans are studied, cared for and prepared for life in the wild. Despite the work of organisations such as these,
orangutans are still threatened; if we want to save these magnificent creatures from extinction, more needs to be done to
protect their habitats.
l. Orangutans are known to be very clever.
2. Gorillas and chimpanzees are the largest tree living animals.

7. The loss of their habitat is the greatest threat to orangutans.
8. Many governments are supporting conservation organisations.

The strange world of your dreams
There are many different theories about dreams and how they work; however, what is certain is that the science of dreams
is not exact. In ancient times, people believed that when we dreamt we entered another world which was real. As the fields
of science and medicine became more advanced, different theories started to come out. Some scientists believe that dreams
are just verbal, visual and emotional stimuli with no apparent meaning. However, others believe that dreams are important
for our mental well-being. The leading psychiatrist, Carl
thought that analysing our dreams provides us with a way to
think more deeply about our lives and solve problems.
For centuries, people have believed that dreams have a deeper meaning. For example, many of us dream that we are
falling and suddenly we wake up. Experts say this dream means we are feeling anxious and insecure or we feel we have
failed in achieving a goal. Another popular dream is that of being chased; this means we are trying to escape our problems.
Ifyou see yourselfin a dream trying to run but your legs don't take you anywhere, then you could be trying to do too
many things at the same time. Also, dreams about losing our teeth are believed to show that we are worried about our
physical appearance.
There has been a lot of research done into controlling dreams and this has led to the term lucid dreaming. Lucid
dreaming happens when you are aware that you are dreaming and are able to control what happens in your dream. This is
an amazing skill but it is also extremely difficult to do and not many people are able to learn it. Lucid dreaming can be a
fun way to experience the strange world of your dreams but it is also believed to help personal development and improve
your problem solving skills.
Some people are able to see future events through their dreams. There is the case of the man who dreamt that he took
his son on a camping trip and his son died near a lake. Some time after he had had the dream, the man and his son were
invited on a camping trip. Then, at a certain time during the trip, the man remembered his dream and noticed that
everything was the same as in his dream; the boy was standing near a lake looking down at pebbles. The man quickly
grabbed his son and took him to safety.
There is still a lot of research taking place into dreams, and it will be some time before we are able to really understand
the strange dream world that we enter every night. Dreams allow us to experience things that would not be possible in real
life, and by analysing our dreams we can learn more about ourselves.

This year for my summer holiday I wanted to enjoy the good life and travel in style so I sailed around the Red Sea in a
luxury yacht. I left behind sub-zero winter temperatures in the UK and arrived to clear blue skies and cheerful sunshine.
The yacht that was to be my home for the week was named Elizabeth. (r)
soon as I got aboard, I took off my shoes
and enjoyed the pleasure of walking on the cool wooden deck. After I was introduced to some of the other passengers, I was
shown around the vessel by two crew members. (2)
On the first night we had a delicious evening meal which consisted of fresh fish and roasted vegetables followed by a rich
chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream. (r)
The following morning we set off on our journey; it was a wonderful
feeling just
sitting and watching the turquoise water slide by. Later on in the day, I went snorkelling and saw some colourful
marine life. (4)
a refreshing swim we all went back to the yacht where we had lunch. The remainder of the day was
spent lazing on the deck.
During the rest of the week I learned how to sail, which was loads of fun but mostly I spent my time swimming in the sea
or on the deck relaxing and chatting to the other passengers.
I would definitely recommend this type of holiday to
anyone who wants to get away from it all.

Cars of the future?
When your mobile phone runs out of battery power, all you have to do to get it working again is to charge it up. Imagine
if you could do the same thing with your car. Researchers at car companies are developing cars that plug into electric
sockets. These vehicles might become the cars of the future.
The cars are called plug-in hybrids and they get most of their power from electricity, just like other electrical devices like
mobile phones and laptops. This technology would significantly reduce the amount of petrol that people use. For countries
that depend on other oil producing countries for their petrol supply this could be a great advantage.
Presently, most cars use petrol. Unfortunately burning fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide gas, and when alarge amount
of this gas and other greenhouse gases are trapped in the Eartht atmosphere, they cause global warming. Hybrid vehicles
have already been developed and are being driven. These cars get their power from both petrol and electricity; they are able
to travel longer distances with less petrol. Plug-in hybrids will be even more advanced as they are designed to be powered
mainly by electricity and use only a small amount of petrol.
Although this technology aPPears to offer a solution to our planet's environmental problems, there are still some
challenges in getting it to work efficiently. The biggest problem is creating batteries that can store a large amount of energy
to run the cars. Plug-in hybrids require a special battery which is very expensive, making the cost of the car very high. In
addition, the electricity used to charge plug-in hybrid cars is produced from burning coal
this produces pollution, too. It
might be some time before the cars will become available to the public but if they do, it will be a major breakthrough for
1. According to the text, researchers are developing
a. a cat that never runs out ofbattery power.
b. an electric car whose battery can be recharged.
c. a car that does not need a battery.
d. an electric car that doesn't need to be charged.
2. This new technology will be beneficial for
a. companies which produce cars.
b. people who don't use much petrol.
c. countries which do not produce oil.
d. oil producing countries.
3. Hybrid cars
a. get their energy only from electricity.
b. are not yet in use.
c. use less petrol than plug-in hybrids.
d. use a combination of electricity and petrol.
4. What is the greatest difficulty in developing the plug-in
hybrid cars?
a. making the appropriate batteries
b. making them environmentally friendly
c. designing the cars to be mainly powered by electricity
d. designing them to run with no batteries
5. According to the writer, what is true about plug-in hybrid
a. They are now available for use.
b. They might never be available to the public.
c. Theywon't solve the problem of pollution completely.
d. They might make pollution worse.

Read the text below about unusua[ fears and phobias. For questions 1-1o choose from the people A-D.
A. Sheila
When she saw these objects on the floor, she felt sick. If they were attached to a piece
of clothing, she found it difficult to be in the same room. What was Sheila so afraid
of? Buttons. The sight ofa button on the floor used to send Sheila into a terrible panic;
her palms would start sweating, her heart would race and she would have difficulty
breathing. Sheila's friends and colleagues usually burst out laughing when she told them
about her phobia and she often felt very embarrassed about it. When it started to control
her life, she knew she had to do something. Sheila took part in a psychology project
which aimed at helping people to get over their fears. As part of her treatment, Sheila had to face her fear and stay in a room
alone with lots of buttons scattered all over the floor. Before facing her feat she had several sessions with a psychologist and
after three weeks she was able to overcome her fear. Now, when Sheila sees a button she just laughs at herself.
When Brian thinks about fish, he feels sick. If he smells or much worse sees a fish, he is overcome
with a feeling of intense disgust. He can't be in the house if any of his family members eat fish and
has to wait several hours for the smell to disappear. If he eats out at a restaurant and someone is
eating fish, he has to leave immediately. One day when Brian saw one of his co-workers eating a
tuna sandwich, he became terrified and started feeling very ill. He had to go home and was unable
to go back to work for two weeks. Brian sought the help of a counsellor who recommended some
relaxation therapy. By talking about his fear and performing some deep breathing and muscular
relaxation exercises, Brian is now able to face his worst enemy. Although he still refuses to eat fish,
now he can go with his family to the seaside and enjoy an evening eating out.
B. Brian
C. Sarah
A childhood event triggered Saraht fear. One day, when she was eight years old, an enormous
cockroach got caught in her hair. Sarah panicked and screamed but it was very difficult for her
parents to help her remove the insect. As a result of this experience, Sarah became terrified of
insects, in particular, cockroaches. She refused to travel abroad and Iived in constant fear of
finding a cockroach in her home. When Sarah had to give up a job offer, she decided it was time to
take control ofher life. She had a combination ofhypnotherapy and psychotherapy, which over a
period of six months helped her to come face-to-face with a giant cockroach without running for
her life. Sarah is delighted that she has been able to get over her fear and now she is able to do her

Read the letter below and write back to Melanie giving advice.
I have a problem and I need your advice. I'm the captain ofthe netball team at school and I'm having trouble
with one of the players. She keeps missing training and when she does turn up, she usually turns up half an hour
I've tried talking to her about it but she just gets angry when I say anything to her. I don't understand why
she's behaving like this because she used to be one of the best players in the team. A few months ago she would
never miss training sessions and her performance during matches was always excellent.
I think there is something going on in her personal life that is causing this. I just
don't know what to do
because I've already tried talking to her. I feel it's my responsibility as team captain to sort this out. I really don't
want to kick her off the team but if the situation gets any worse, I might have to.
What do you think I should do? I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice.
Best wishes,

Read the text about hip hop and answer the questions. Choose a, b, c or d.
For those of you who love hip hop, there is a great way to learn more about hip hop history and culture -just take a
hip hop tour of Harlem and the Bronx. This is a unique music tour that provides fans with a deeper understanding of
hip hop. It is both enjoyable and educational for both serious hip hop fans and tourists visiting New York who want to
experience a different side of the city.
The tour guides are some of the biggest names from the early years of hip hop; they include D| Kool Herc, known to
many as the father of hip hop, the rapper Kurtis Blow and Grandmaster Caz who was a member of the group Cold Crush
Brothers. The guides provide an entertaining presentation for their listeners, including handing out some "bling bling"
such as gold bead necklaces with large gold dollar signs attached. This is to show that hip hop culture is all about style and
having the right attitude.
The tour bus sets off from Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and the guides explain how hip hop started on August 11,
1973, when Kool Herc held a party which lasted for several nights.The passengers learn that rappers, DI's, breakdancers
and graffiti artists all play an important role in hip hop. The tour bus makes its first stop in Spanish Harlem where the
passengers car, gaze at the Graffiti Hall of Fame. The walls are brightly coloured with cartoon characters and phrases;

Apollo Theater and the Theresa Hotel, where Ray Charles wrote his famous song Hir the Road
Passengers can also
stop off at a 'soul food" restaurant where they can enjoy African American food.
