1. The inhabitants of Bath 5. Location in the UK


2. Tourism in Bath 6. The geography of Bath
3. Bath's architecture 7. Culture and the arts
4. Climate in Bath 8. Bath's ancient history

A. Bath is a world famous city known for its thermal baths, which are a major tourist attraction. The city
is situated in the southwest of England, near the country’s west coast and about 150 kilometres from
London. Bath is in the area of England that is known as Somerset, a county bordered on the north by
the Bristol Channel.

B. The baths for which Bath is known were built around the year 60. It was the Romans who established
the city as a spa. They did so about 20 years after they arrived in England. They constructed the baths,
along with a temple, on a hillside near hot springs. Over the next 300 years, structures would be added
to the baths, making them grander.

C. Over the years, Bath slowly became an important city. Wealthy people began moving there in the
1500s. In 1767, construction began on the Royal Crescent, a group of buildings that form a semicircle
and look out onto a park. The buildings were constructed in the Georgian style. Afterward, more
buildings were built in the same style, giving Bath the character it has today.

D. Bath is situated in the Avon Valley. The city is built on and surrounded by hills, which have a maximum
height of 238 metres. The valley, which is about 18 metres above sea level, runs through the city centre.
The River Avon runs through this area, and because it is a low-lying area, the city sometimes suffers
from floods during rainy seasons.

E. Presently, there are just over 80,000 people living in the city itself. The greater region of Bath, which
includes nearby parts of Somerset, has a total population of around 160,000. The majority of people
living in Bath are of English birth, with just under 3% of people being from places outside the UK.
A resident of Bath is known as a Bathonian.

F. As it is located in the southwest of England, Bath generally has winters that are warmer than other
parts of the country. Its summers are usually cool and rainy, and the temperature doesn’t go much over
20°Celsius. Average rainfall is 700 millimetres, which is spread out evenly throughout the seasons.
Its windiest period is in the winter, while summers tend to have light breezes.

G. The city of Bath has five theatres, and performances are put on by both national and international
companies. There are also important concerts that take place in Bath, as well as literature and film
festivals. One such festival decides who in Bath is that year’s greatest poet, singer or storyteller. These
various events attract thousands of people to the city.

In the autumn of 1900, a team of Greek sponge divers were returning from the coast of Africa. A dangerous
storm started, which forced them to take shelter near the small Greek island of Antikythera. While the crew
waited for the storm to pass, the captain of the boat sent one of his divers to search the seabed for sponges.
The diver, Elias Stadiatis, discovered the remains of a 2,000-year-old shipwreck at the bottom of the sea,
60 metres below. When he returned to the surface, he was so excited about what hed found that the captain
thought he had been affected by too much carbon dioxide. But when the captain himself went down to take a
look, he saw that his crewman really had found ancient treasures. He immediately told the Greek authorities,
and the sponge divers, with the assistance of the Greek navy, began to recover the wonderful things.
In the following months, using only very basic diving equipment, the divers managed to bring to the
surface an amazing number of ancient artefacts, including bronze and marble statues, delicate glassware
and gold jewellery. All of this had remained undisturbed for nearly two thousand years. The operation
only stopped because conditions became too dangerous to continue.
One of the items that was discovered was a piece of bronze. It was in such poor condition that no one
was sure what it was. One archaeologist suggested that it was some kind of clockwork mechanism, but no
one believed him and it was put away for storage in a museum. It was nearly fifty years before anyone else
took any interest in the item.
In 1951, a British scientist called Derek Price began to investigate the item. He discovered that it contained
a complex gear mechanism and suggested that it was used to make calculations about the position of planets.
It is regarded as the world’s first example of an analog computer. Today, it is world famous, and is known as ‘the
Antikythera mechanism’. Before the discovery of this mechanism, it was believed that no complex clockwork
machines had been invented until the 14th century. Scientists continue to investigate just how it was used.
The site of the shipwreck continues to fascinate modern archaeologists, who are keen to make further
diving expeditions in the area. But diving in dangerous waters at depths of between sixty and seventy metres
is expensive and difficult, so there have been only a few expeditions over the last hundred years or so. If it’s
difficult now, just think how much harder it was for a team of Greek divers over a hundred years ago.

Task 1. You are going to read the text aloud. You have 1.5 minutes to read the text silently,

□ and then be ready to read it aloud. Remember that you will not have more than 2 minutes
for reading aloud.

Crabs are found in all the worlds oceans. Most species have a hard shell, which protects
them from predators. However, the hermit crab lacks a shell of its own and lives in those
produced by other sea creatures. Generally, they choose the shells of sea snails, although
they have been known to live in hollow stones and even pieces of wood. When other
crabs grow bigger, they are forced to grow a new shell. The hermit crab simply leaves its
current home and goes in search of a larger shell. When it finds one, it leaves the old shell
behind. This can lead to a situation where a number of hermit crabs all swap homes at the
same time and each one moves up to a bigger shell.

Task 2. You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You have to answer six questions.
Give full answers to the questions.

1. The history of digital cameras 5. Additional equipment


2. How a digital camera works 6. Types of digital cameras
3. Operating a digital camera 7. Professional uses today
4. Features of digital cameras 8. An immediate advantage

A. Cameras have come a long way since the time of our grandparents. The days of using film cameras are
almost gone. Even the digital camera has come far since its beginning. Now there are digital cameras
that fit in your pocket, and there are those for use among professional photographers. Even the movie
industry has taken to using a kind of digital camera for shooting films.

B. Digital cameras perform a wide range of functions. They can zoom in on an object, just like a film
camera, but they can also zoom in digitally for an even closer shot. They can make the colours brighter
or darker, and they can make the image sharper. They can even make the photo come out in black and
white, for a more artistic look.

C. One great feature of a digital camera is the ability to delete unwanted photos. As soon as you take
a photo, you can view it on the camera screen and decide if you want to keep it. If not, you can erase it
from the cameras memory and take another photo. Its better than having the photo developed from
film, which takes time and money.

D. A digital camera records an image in basically the same way as a film camera. The difference is that,
with a film camera, a chemical process occurs to create the image. With a digital camera, the process
is electronic. A sensor records the colours and details of an image, which then appear on the cameras
screen.

E. You can use a digital camera just as you would a film camera. An obvious difference is that with
a digital camera, you don’t have to load film. You basically just point and shoot. As with any other
camera, though, you have to use the flash in dark places, and you can adjust the lens to take photos
from far away or up close.

F. You can attach extra lenses to digital cameras to take special pictures, just as you can with a film
camera. Unlike film cameras, though, a digital camera also has a cable that you can use to attach it to
a computer, to save your images for emailing and storing on your computer’s hard drive, or sending to
a printer for easy printing.

G. The first digital cameras were used in military and scientific settings. This was around the time of their
invention in 1975. These early cameras weighed about 3 kilograms and took black and white photos.
A few years later, digital cameras were used in medical facilities. It wasn’t until the early 1990s that
digital cameras were made available to consumers.

Richard III was an English king who ruled England from 1483 until his death in battle in 1485. He is
one of the most famous people in English history - so how is it possible that, after being king for only two
years, he is still so widely remembered?
In the years after his death, much was written about the character of Richard III. Some of this shows
a positive side of the man and his period as king, but most was rather negative. Why?
Firstly, the man who defeated Richard in battle became king next, and his family ruled England for
much of the next 120 years. Also, many people hated Richard while he was alive. Since historians of the
time often wrote histories based on opinions rather than facts, they made sure his name was remembered
for negative reasons. They wrote about Richard’s desire for power, claiming it was something he would
kill for, and perhaps this was true. It didn’t help that Richard III had a physical condition that gave him
a strangely twisted back and one shoulder much higher than the other.
That is the description of Richard III which is shown in William Shakespeare’s 1592 play, Richard III. The
brilliant play is a large part of the reason why we remember Richard III today. Shakespeare created his character
as an incredibly evil but intelligent and funny king who, in the end, died for wrongly claiming power.
Richard III came to power after his brother, Edward IV, suddenly died. Edward IV’s young son, Edward
V, was supposed to become king, but a group of powerful people decided the young boy did not have the
right to rule, and so Richard III became king. Edward V and his younger brother were never seen again,
leading people to believe - rightly or wrongly - that Richard III had the two boys killed.
Today we are more aware of the positive things that Richard III did in his short time as king. For
example, he created a court where poor people could have legal cases heard for a low cost. He also had
English laws, which were written in traditional French, translated into English.
Another reason we know of Richard III today was the recent discovery of his bones beneath a car park
in Leicester, in central England. After his defeat and death on the battlefield, he was buried nearby, with
no official ceremony, in an old church which was later destroyed. Five hundred years later, after years
of searching through historical records, a team of archaeologists began digging where they believed he
was buried. On the very first day, they found the bones of a man with a twisted back and battle wounds.
Further research and tests proved that the bones were those of Richard III.

10 After Richard III died, people only said bad things about him.
1) True 2) False 3) Notstated Ответ:
11 Richard’s right shoulder was higher than his left shoulder.
1) True 2) False 3) Notstated Ответ:
12 In Shakespeare’s play, we find out why Richard III was evil.
1) True 2) False 3) Notstated Ответ:
13 Richard III did not want his brother’s son to become king.
1) True 2) False 3) Notstated Ответ:
14 It’s possible Richard III was responsible for the deaths of his nephews.
1) True 2) False 3) Notstated Ответ:
15 Before Richard, English laws were usually written in French.

Task 1. You are going to read the text aloud. You have 1.5 minutes to read the text silently,

for reading aloud.

Binoculars are used in many activities, including sport, bird-watching and the theatre.
They are also an important part of military equipment, and amateur astronomers often
prefer them to telescopes for certain observations. Binoculars, or field glasses or opera
glasses as they are sometimes called, are essentially two telescopes positioned in parallel.
This gives them an advantage over the telescope. For nearer objects, because there is a lens
for each eye, the human brain gains more of a sense of depth. In other words, the image
seen through the binoculars appears to be three-dimensional. The history of binoculars
goes back to the 17th century, shortly after the telescope was invented. Today, a number
of companies around the world manufacture binoculars for general, or specific, use.

Task 2. You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You have to answer six questions.

1. Health problems and the young 5. Getting help with health problems
2. Dangerous lifestyles 6. Health and your diet
3. Health problems and the aged 7. Exercise and health
4. Preventing health problems 8. Work and health

A. Staying healthy is just as important as getting help when you do fall ill. Doctors recommend getting
vaccinated against certain diseases at a young age, or perhaps when there is a flu epidemic and many
people suffer from and spread the disease. ‘Prevention is better than cure’, as the old saying goes. It is
easier to get ill than it is to get better, so take care.

B. Healthy food is essential for the body and the mind. You are what you eat, so if you eat junk food or
drink a lot of sugary drinks, think what it is doing to your body. Another old saying is an apple a day
keeps the doctor away’, pointing out the benefits of eating simple, healthy food.

C. A good work-out can keep you fit and healthy, but too much can cause problems. There are two forms
of exercise, resistant and aerobic, and both have their advantages, but doctors recommend combining
both forms for maximum benefit. It can be difficult to find time to go to the gym, because of work or
family obligations, but just a few minutes a week can work wonders.

D. It is not so easy to combine healthy living with your everyday routine, and sometimes a persons job
can present problems. For example, if you work long hours, you can become over-tired and your body
gets run down. Other jobs involve a lot of pressure, which can cause stress, leading to various illnesses.
As always, moderation and care are the best defence against the threat of illness.

E. Some groups of people are especially vulnerable to illness. Babies, for example, need a clean environment
as their bodies cannot yet deal with certain germs or bacteria, and can catch all sorts of diseases very
easily. They need a lot of sleep and a special diet, too, to ensure healthy growth. Each new family should
get the best advice they can from an expert on how to raise a healthy child.

E Both the young and the elderly are high-risk groups. Age brings wisdom, but it can also bring health
problems. As your body grows older, it naturally grows weaker, and special care must be taken at this
stage in life. Perhaps some gentle exercise or a change in diet becomes necessary, on the advice of your
medical consultant.

G. If you do become ill, you must act quickly. You could make an appointment with your doctor, or if

Many different countries have a national day, and 12th June is one of the newest. This is the day
when the Russian people celebrate the beginning of modern Russian democracy. On that date in 1990,
a document declaring Russian state sovereignty was signed by the country’s leaders, marking the start
of the ‘new’ state of Russia as a nation. 12th June was declared a public holiday in 1994, and three years
later someone suggested changing the name of the day, from the original ‘Day of Signing the Declaration
of State Sovereignty’. This was finally done in 2002, and to this day 12th June is known as ‘Russia Day’.
Because it is a national holiday, most banks, schools and public offices are closed. Public transport still
runs, but with reduced timetables in most places. The Russian flag is flown and the two-headed eagle,
the symbol of the Russian Federation, is displayed everywhere. As you would expect, the state puts on
a magnificent display, and around the country various official events take place to celebrate the day.
In the capital, Moscow, there’s a big parade through the streets, and sporting events often take place
outside the Kremlin. The President of Russia addresses the nation and takes the opportunity to present
medals and awards to important and famous people in the arts and sciences.
Perhaps because it is such a new national holiday, some people are a little confused how it should
be celebrated. Musical events and firework displays are common across the country. Some people take
advantage of the day to celebrate their cultural heritage by dressing in traditional clothes and demonstrating
the traditional dances of the various regions. A more modern way of celebrating may include attending
pop concerts or going for a picnic in the countryside. Environmentalists have sometimes used the day
to draw attention to green issues while still expressing their national pride.
Some Russian communities abroad also celebrate the day. For example, in 2012 a formal dinner
in Chicago, USA was attended by various VIPs representing both America and Russia, and included
a speech given by the Russian Ambassador to the US. Russian classical music was performed and the
dinner featured traditional Russian dishes, while soldiers from both countries were honoured. This
celebrated Russia Day and helped to bring Russians and Americans closer together.
Despite this variety of focus, the true meaning of the day is clear. No matter how people celebrate
on 12th June, they are celebrating the relationship of a country to its past, present, and future, and - above
all - its people.

10 No other country celebrates a National Day on 12th June.

Task 1. You are going to read the text aloud. You have 1.5 minutes to read the text silently,
and then be ready to read it aloud. Remember that you will not have more than 2 minutes
for reading aloud.

The human tongue is an amazing organ. It is controlled by eight muscles, four of which
make up the tongue and four of which connect the tongue to the rest of the body. It plays
an important role in eating, where it not only enables us to taste our food, but also helps
to break up food. The tongue also helps to keep teeth clean. Apart from this function, the
tongue is also important in producing speech. By positioning your tongue against the
teeth or the roof of the mouth, you can make certain consonant sounds. In addition to
that, you can raise or lower your tongue to change the shape of the inside of your mouth
to make different vowel sounds.

Task 2. You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You have to answer six questions.
Give full answers to the questions.

Remember that you have 40 seconds to answer each question.

A. Dmitri Mendeleev was a Russian chemist and inventor who developed the Periodic Law and a periodic
table of chemical elements. This allowed him to predict the properties of elements that had not yet
been discovered at the time. He is internationally recognised as one of the greats of the world of science
and scientific research.

B. Dmitri Mendeleev was born in 1834 in the village of Verkhnie Aremzyani near the Siberian city of
Tobolsk. He was the youngest child in a very large family. Although the exact number is not known, he
had between eleven and sixteen brothers and sisters. In his early years, the family was quite well-off, as
Mendeleev s father was a teacher of fine arts, philosophy and politics.

C. The Mendeleev family fortunes changed when Dmitri s father became blind and had to give up teaching.
His wife was now forced to work to support the family, and she re-opened an old glass factory which
belonged to her family. But later, the factory was destroyed in a fire and, because of poverty, the family
had to move to Saint Petersburg.

D. Dmitri Mendeleev began his scientific career teaching chemistry, and by 1864 he had been made
a professor at Saint Petersburg State University. He soon began to be noticed by chemists around
the world, and it wasn’t long before he had turned Saint Petersburg into an international centre of
excellence in the field of chemistry research.

E. Mendeleev was not the first to work on a periodic table of elements. Another scientist, Lothar Meyer
from Germany, published an almost identical table a few months after Mendeleev. However, only
Mendeleevs table contained predictions of undiscovered elements. Many scientists didn’t believe his
predictions, but two of the missing elements were later discovered, establishing without doubt the
accuracy of his table.

F. Apart from his work in the field of chemistry research, Mendeleev was a founder member of the
Russian Chemical Society. He also helped establish the first oil refinery in Russia and was, at one time,
director of the Russian Bureau of Weights and Measures. Finally, Mendeleev is also credited with
having introduced the metric system into Russia.

G. Mendeleev died at the age of 72 in 1907. His life is commemorated with a museum in his honour at
Saint Petersburg State University. A street in Saint Petersburg is named after him, as well as a crater
on the far side of the moon. The Russian Academy of Sciences annually awards the Mendeleev Gold
Medal for achievements in chemical science and technology.

The Maya are a group of people living in Central America and southern Mexico, whose history dates back
an incredible 4,000 years. The height of their civilisation is sometimes known as the ‘Classic period’. This lasted
from about 300 to 900AD, and then suddenly ended. Archaeologists today still ask, ‘Why did this happen?’
There are many possible explanations for the end of the Classic Maya civilisation, but no-one knows
for sure exactly what happened. One possibility is that some groups of foreigners invaded and destroyed
some of the most important Maya cities. However, most archaeologists and historians who have studied
this subject think this explanation is unlikely.
Another possibility involves the expansion of the civilisation during the 700s. Some buildings from that
period remain unfinished. Why? The suggestion is that poor Maya citizens were forced to carry out the hard
building work. Because they were badly treated, they fought back. This would explain why the buildings were
never completed. However, scientific research has shown that the buildings weren’t actually very difficult to
build. What’s more, other civilisations that experienced problems like these did not just disappear.
A third possibility involves the collapse of trade. Some archaeologists believe that the Maya were
closely connected to the city of Teotihuacan by trade. This great city ruled central Mexico, and its collapse
in 750AD changed trade routes. However, it has been discovered that the Maya’s connection with this
city was strong around 500AD. This means that by the time Teotihuacan fell, the Maya were already
independent of the city’s influence.
One of the most likely explanations is a change in the weather, with not enough rain leading to an
extremely bad drought. Scientists have been able to work out rainfall amounts at the time from soil
samples. It appears that the area suffered from a ‘mega-drought’ and the severe lack of water was enough
to starve the Maya of food. Critics of this idea say that only the northern regions have been studied and the
Maya civilisation was stronger in the south. Also, certain Maya cities in the north survived until 900AD or
even later, but this is possibly because they were located closer to the sea and could survive on fish.
Whatever its cause, the end of the Maya Classic period did not bring a complete end to its people.
Today, there are still millions of them living in the area, speaking one or more of the 21 Mayan languages
still in existence.

1. Very popular with children 5. British cuisine and other cultures


2. Common ingredients 6. Characteristics of British food
3. World-famous meals 7. Holiday meal with a history
4. Royal influence 8. Local dishes

A. A standard British meal is often described as being simple to prepare with a few high-quality ingredients.
There is typically a main dish, baked or possibly fried, with one or two kinds of vegetable. There is often
a sauce to accompany the meal, and dishes generally consist of foods grown within the country.

B. Over the centuries, British cuisine has changed to include foods from other countries, especially India,
large parts of which were ruled by Britain until 1947. Indian food slowly made its way into British
cuisine, and there are combinations of British and Indian dishes in the UK. The same is true in Gibraltar,
a British territory at the tip of Spain, which has British food with a strong Spanish influence.

C. Some common British dishes have direct links with a particular area of the country. Yorkshire pudding,
for example, is often served with meat dishes and Christmas dinner. It comes from the town of York
in the north of England. A tasty meat pie known as a Cornish pasty originates from Cornwall, in the
south-west of England.

D. As with other cuisines, lobally-grown food is mainly used in British cuisine. Agriculture in Britain has
long centred round growing potatoes and green vegetables, and producing high-quality beef. Likewise,
the British fishing industry has made fish and chips one of the most popular meals.

E. People around the world know one or two British dishes. These include the Tull English breakfast’,
complete with bacon, eggs and sausage, and Sunday roast, which has roast beef, potatoes, vegetables
and Yorkshire pudding. Perhaps a lesser-known type of British food is kippers - a small type of fish,
salted and smoked, which is often served for breakfast.

F. Afternoon tea, consisting of a cup of tea served with biscuits or scones, has long been a part of British
cuisine. Catharine, the Portuguese wife of King Charles II, introduced the idea of drinking tea in the
afternoon to the English court in the 17th century. Aristocratic ladies soon copied this, and eventually
both upper and middle classes in Britain began doing it.

G. Christmas dinner, a special meal eaten in many parts of the English-speaking world on Christmas
Day, is another traditional part of British cuisine. It consists of turkey, stuffing, and a variety of sauces
and vegetables. The meal did not always consist of turkey. This began in the 16th century, and King
Henry VIII is thought to have been the first monarch to eat turkey for his Christmas meal.

The Siberian tiger is the largest type of feline living today, measuring up to 3 metres or more from its
nose to the tip of its tail. It is an endangered species and much has been done to protect it. For a while,
these protection efforts met with some success. Recently, though, their numbers have begun to drop again.
Conservation efforts began in the early 1990s, and in 2005 there were nearly 400 Siberian tigers living
in their natural habitat. Their population remained about the same during those dozen years or so, but
in late 2006, the number of tigers killed by hunters increased again. Siberian tigers have a beautiful coat
of fur, which is the main reason why they are hunted - even though in 1947 the practice of hunting them
was made illegal in Russia, where the Siberian tiger mainly makes its home.
Wars - especially the Russian Civil War, which brought the soldiers of both armies to the Vladivostok
area - have also had a terrible effect on the species’ numbers.
There were about 250 Siberian tigers in the 1980s, and illegal hunting threatened to make them extinct
within a short time. A plan called the Siberian Tiger Project was launched in 1992, and researchers arrived
in the area to monitor the population and study their ways of life in order to better help them survive.
The specific region where Siberian tigers live - the Far East - is an area also including small parts of
China and North Korea. The tigers were once found in regions inside both those countries, but in North
Korea it has been a long time since one was seen. In China, which co-operates with Russia in conservation
efforts, they still exist. The two governments work together to raise awareness about the difficulties the
animal faces and both send police protection to the tigers’ habitat.
Various ideas have been suggested for increasing the population of the Siberian tiger. One is that a
home could be made for them in Central Asia, the natural habitat of the Caspian tiger, since it is a very
close relative of the Siberian tiger. However, the problem with this suggestion is that there is not a large
enough habitat available in this area to support them. Another idea is to introduce the tigers into a wildlife
park being set up in Russia. Unfortunately, the park is in the planning stages and it could be several years
before the tigers would be able to live there.
Although there are few Siberian tigers located in the wild, there are about a thousand living in zoos
around the world. While it is not an ideal habitat, it is a safe environment for the tigers, and they are able
to reproduce, which means it is unlikely that they will become extinct.

10 In 1990, there were fewer than 300 Siberian tigers in the world.

If you could cut through the Earth to see what lies beneath your feet, you would see that
we live on what is called the crust. This is a layer of rock varying from 3 to 43 miles thick.
Below this crust is the mantle. The mantle consists of rock which is solid, but which is so
hot that it flows slowly. This movement is what causes earthquakes, when large plates of
the crust are forced against each other. Below the mantle is the outer core. This is a region
of liquid around 1,400 miles thick. At the very centre of the Earth lies the solid inner core,
composed of iron and nickel. This solid ball is about 70% the size of the Moon.

Task 2. You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You have to answer six questions.

1. Saharan climate change 5. When to go there


2. Where tourists stay 6. Population centres in the Sahara
3. Saharan watering holes 7. Very hot and very cold
4. Getting around in the Sahara 8. Crossing the whole Sahara

A. The Sahara is the one of the worlds hottest and largest deserts. Although it stretches the whole width
of Africa, there are few routes that go all the way from one side to the other. If s possible to travel along
the western edge, from Morocco to Senegal, or the eastern edge, through Egypt and Sudan. A third
route goes right through the centre, from Algeria into Niger.

B. Many people who visit the Sahara start in North Africa. Few people travel deep into the desert, but
those who do can stay in desert camps organised by travel groups. During the day you can explore the
desert on the back of a camel, or stay in your tent until the temperature drops, which happens when
the sun goes down.

C. Daytime temperatures in the Sahara are often well over 40°C, so obviously you must wear clothing
to protect yourself from the sun, and you need to keep plenty of water handy. Surprisingly, though,
you also need blankets and extra clothing to stay warm at night, as the thermometer can drop to nearly
freezing.

D. There are very few places to satisfy your thirst in the Sahara. It is not completely dry, though. There
are small lakes that support a little plant life and a few nearby tribes. Some are large enough to support
thousands of people. These areas are often far from one another; travelling between them can take days
on camel.

E. There are some towns and cities in the Sahara. One is El Oued, Algeria, whose people use water from
an underground river to grow food. Timbuktu, Mali, was once part of a 14th century empire and
is now a UNESCO world heritage site. Beni-Izguen, Algeria, is a religious centre surrounded by high
walls that protect brightly-coloured homes.

F. It is possible to drive in the Sahara by car. However, none of the roads goes very far. One of the oldest
ways is by camel. Of course, it is not wise for tourists to use this method to cross the entire Sahara,
but for daily trips from desert camps, it s a smart way to explore places with a guide.

G. Winter is the best season to visit the region, as temperatures are slightly easier to handle. It is even
possible to experience a rain shower, or (in extremely rare cases) snow. For this reason, most tourists
choose to visit the Sahara during this time of the year.

The United Kingdom, or UK, is made up of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Wales has
two official languages, English and Welsh. Welsh is spoken by slightly fewer than 600,000 people, which
is about 20% of the population of Wales. Why don’t more people use the language to communicate?
There are a few reasons which help to explain this. In the past, Welsh schoolchildren were punished for
speaking any language other than English at school. The result of this was that Welsh gradually came to be
used less and less. It wasn’t until the 1960s that things began to change in its favour.
In 1962, the Welsh Language Society was formed, and fought hard to increase the use of Welsh in
Wales. It did a number of things to try to achieve this. Sometimes these were illegal, but they were never
violent. They wanted two main things. The first was for Welsh to be taught in schools. The second was
to set up a radio station and a television station that would broadcast in Welsh. Eventually, the Welsh
radio station Radio Cymru was created. After a few more years, a Welsh-language television channel was
started. Then, Welsh children began taking lessons in the language at school, and street signs are now
in both English and Welsh. Much of this is due to the Welsh Language Society’s efforts.
In spite of this, however, fewer and fewer people speak Welsh nowadays. It’s a struggle to keep the
language alive. While there are more places where Welsh is spoken, it’s not completely a part of daily
life. Private businesses are not required to offer services in Welsh. This means, for example, that Welsh­
speaking citizens may not be able to use Welsh when they need to deal with a mobile phone company.
They can’t always arrange holidays in Welsh either, and it isn’t possible for them to use Welsh when they
shop in certain supermarkets.
Another problem is that Wales has a high unemployment rate, which forces young people to move to
another part of the UK in order to find a job, or even to go abroad. When this happens, they generally have
no need to speak Welsh at all. They might know the language as a part of their history and culture, but it is
of little or no use in their jobs or daily life.
The Welsh Language Society has done a lot to make sure Welsh remains a living language. In fact,
Welsh has become a semi-official language of the European Union. This means that people are allowed
to speak Welsh if they want to in some EU meetings around Europe.

With approximately 7 million people ascending it each year, the Eiffel Tower today is one
of the most visited monuments in the world. It is also one of the most loved. However,
when it was built in the late 1880s as the entrance to the 1889 Worlds Fair, it was heavily
criticised by French politicians, artists and journalists as being ‘useless’ and ‘ridiculous’.
At 324 metres tall, the Tower is the tallest structure in Paris. There are three levels for
visitors. The top level is an observation deck, which is reached by means of an elevator.
There are restaurants on the lower two levels, which can be reached by stairs or elevator.
The climb from the ground to the first level is more than 300 steps.

1. Don’t change what you are 5. A circle of fame


2. Gifted but tragic 6. The two sides of fame
3. Famous but normal 7. The truth behind the glamour
4. Buying friends 8. Getting away from it all

A. Today, we live in what is called a celebrity culture’ Many people are famous for no reason, it seems.
But fame can be good or bad, and when it comes, you must be ready to handle it. You can enjoy great
wealth and a luxury lifestyle, or you can fall further than you could imagine.

B. There are established, mature stars, such as Brad Pitt, for example, who has obviously handled his
worldwide fame well. He managed to guide his life and career safely to the point where, today, he is
happily married with a family, and he keeps out of the headlines unless he is making a movie or doing
some charity work - all signs of a balanced, well-adjusted person.

C. There are stars such as Michael Jackson, who was born with a huge talent into a performing family,
and thrust into the limelight as a young child. This seems to have affected his development. He was
ridiculed in the media for his strange private life, and on his sad death it was discovered hed been
addicted to various drugs. Perhaps if he hadn’t been so famous, his life might have been happier and
easier.

D. Why are some people famous when they have no special talent or haven’t done anything great? There
are media figures who are famous for being themselves, and who have their own reality TV shows
which are about their everyday lives - but their everyday lives are about being famous, mainly through
their reality TV show. One seems to follow the other, which follows the first...

E. If you suddenly become famous, you’ll need to deal with the pressure and stress. A public relations
manager can help with the paparazzi attention and get the right stories in the right places. You also
need to maintain your routine. Don’t change your whole life - eat the same things, keep the same
friends and sleep at the same time as you used to.

F. If sudden fame gets too much, if your life has become just a public circus and you can’t take it any
more, there are still a couple of things you can do. Just disappearing is the obvious one - leave town, go
to a secluded hotel, turn off your phone and don’t check the internet. The public’s attention will soon
move on to the next latest thing.

G. Perhaps fame is not really what you think it is. It’s easy to forget the stress, pressure, and constant media
attention that come with fame. Next time you see someone on the red carpet in front of the cameras,
dressed up in their finest clothes, smiling as hard as they can, ask yourself this: aIs it really worth it?”

George Stephenson was a famous engineer who earned the name ‘The Father of the Railway’. This is
because of his famous steam engine called Rocket, which he built in 1829. He had built trains before, and his
son would go on to build more, but this was the most famous and most important train of them all. Rocket
included some new design features that proved so efficient that it became the model for trains for the next
150 years.
Stephenson was born in 1781. His father’s job involved maintaining steam engines at the local coal
mine. George first learnt about steam engines from his father, as did George’s son, Robert, many years
later. At the age of 14, George was working with his father, stripping and repairing the great machines.
George decided to learn to read and write to improve himself, going to school three nights a week after
work. His intelligence and inventiveness became obvious when he invented a new type of lamp which coal
miners could use underground. He turned his attention to the steam engine, and saw how the machines
would run better on rails or tracks, rather than on roads.
He kept working on his ideas, and by 1814, he had made his first ‘railway locomotive’. This used a steam
engine to transport things along a track rather than a road. Then, five years later, the owners of a local coal
mine hired him to build them a railway. In 1825, his Locomotion Number 1 became the first passenger
train, running on track he built between two English towns. George himself drove the first train, which
carried 450 passengers at 15 miles per hour (25km/h).
When Locomotion Number 1 exploded and killed the driver in 1828, it was clear that some improvements
needed to be made. A year later, when the owners of a new line between the major cities of Liverpool and
Manchester offered a prize for the best design, Stephenson saw his chance to put his new idea to the test.
Three engines took part in the competition; the other two broke down, and only Stephenson’s newly-
designed engine completed the test. This engine, Rocket, was also faster than the others, and so won the
right to carry passengers along the line.
On September 15,1830, huge crowds turned out to see the first journey, including the Prime Minister and
other important figures. The age of steam had really begun. Tragically, the first fatal railway accident happened
on that first day, when the Member of Parliament for Liverpool was knocked over and killed by Rocket.

Rocket was the first train Stephenson built.

Today, corn grows all over the world but it was unknown outside Mexico and the rest of
North America until the Spanish brought it to Europe at the start of the 16th Century. It
soon spread because it is able to grow in many different kinds of climate. The Portuguese
took it to Africa, where it quickly became popular. It is important as food for both humans
and animals and is a good source of vitamins. The Americans often make cornbread,
while in Britain cornflakes are commonly eaten for breakfast. Recently, corn has found
new uses as fuel. It can be burned in a heater at home or it can be used in cars. It has come
a long way from its origins.

1. Modern changes 5. Protecting small islands


2. New defences needed 6. Worldwide effects
3. Helping and threatening life 7. Differing opinions
4. Ancient data 8. Populations living at sea level

A. Water is possibly the most important thing for life on planet Earth. But even though we cannot survive
without water, it also creates many problems, and the global rise in sea levels is a danger to millions
of people. About 70% of the earth is covered by water and many cities are built close to coastal areas.

B. Although sea levels are rising at an increasing rate, there is no clear agreement as to what is causing it.
Many scientists believe that global warming, caused by human activity, has contributed to it. Others
argue that it is the result of natural climate change and the Earth often goes through patterns of rising
and falling sea levels.

C. Whatever causes rising sea levels, the signs are clear. It appears that sea levels began to rise in the 19th
century and these increases have more than doubled in the 20th century. There is plenty of evidence
for these changes, from scientific sources such as geological data and record keeping.

D. There is plenty of evidence for dramatic changes in sea levels in the past. For instance, geological data
shows that in the last ice age, 18,000 years ago, sea levels were around 120 metres lower than they are
today. Further back in the past, there is evidence that sea levels were higher. So fluctuations in sea
levels have occurred at various points in history.

E. The fact that rising sea levels may be a natural phenomenon wont be much consolation to people living
in coastal areas facing the dangers of flooding. Large cities such as London and New York already
use flood barriers. However, these cities will need much greater flood defences in the future. The
Netherlands, a country with 25% of its land below sea level, will also need to increase its sea defences.

F. It is estimated that many islands could become uninhabitable. Even quite small rises in sea level can
have a devastating effect on communities. Flooding can cause destruction of property and crops, soil
erosion and poor quality drinking water. Worldwide, about 634 million people live in coastal areas and
two thirds of the worlds largest major cities are in low-lying areas.

G. People who don’t live close to coastal areas would be seriously affected by the destruction of coastal
communities. Firstly, it would mean that large numbers of climate refugees would have to move to
higher ground. The damage to agriculture and fresh water supplies could result in widespread famine.
All in all, rising sea levels could be very serious for the entire population of the world.

Mary Shelley, the wife of the well-known English poet Percy Shelley, was also a famous writer. She is
best known for her novel Frankenstein, one of the world’s greatest horror stories. Apart from Frankenstein,
Mary wrote many other novels and short stories, as well as editing her husbands works after his death.
Mary was born in London in 1797. Her father was a political philosopher. Her mother was a philosopher
and early feminist. Unfortunately, Marys mother died eleven days after her daughters birth. Mary was
brought up by her father and, when her father later remarried, her stepmother.
Mary was only 16 years old when she fell in love with the young poet Percy Shelley. It caused a scandal
in English society when they ran away together. Marys relations with her own family were very difficult
because of her relationship with Percy. Even more severely, his family never forgave them or made peace
with them. Even after Percy’s death, his father refused to meet Mary for the rest of his life.
In 1816, the Shelleys spent the summer months by Lake Geneva in Switzerland, where they were joined
by other friends, including the poet Lord Byron. As it was a cold, wet summer, the party of friends would
often sit in Byron’s villa, talking late into the night by the light of a warm log fire. One night, someone
suggested that everyone should come up with a ghost story to entertain them. Only the 19-year-old Mary
Shelley managed to produce a horror story. This became the much-loved novel Frankenstein.
Mary Shelley suffered many misfortunes in her life. She had four children, but only one son, named
after his father, survived into adulthood. Mary mourned the loss of her other children her whole life.
Then, in 1822, while the Shelleys were living abroad in Italy, Percy drowned in a boating accident, at the
age of 29. Mary was a widow at 25 years of age. She never remarried.
After the death of her husband, Mary returned to England with her young son. Her husband’s family
offered a very small amount of financial help, so Mary had to become a full-time writer to support herself
and her son. It was only after the death of Percy’s father that she was finally free from financial difficulties.
Mary Shelley died at the age of 53, probably from a brain tumour, although historians are not completely
sure. She is buried alongside her mother and father in a churchyard in Bournemouth, Dorset. Although
her husband was buried in a cemetery in Rome, his heart was removed and is buried with his wife in the
grave in Bournemouth.

10 Many of Mary Shelley’s books were horror stories.

Credit and debit cards are used by millions of people around the world to pay for goods
and services in place of cash. The fundamental difference between the two types of card
is that with a debit card, the amount paid leaves the buyers bank account immediately.
What is more, if they do not have sufficient funds in their account to cover the amount,
the transaction will not be accepted by the bank. With a credit card, however, the buyer
is given credit by the credit card company. In other words, they are given a period of
time where they can repay the amount interest-free. After that, they must pay interest -
usually a very high rate - on the amount that is still owed.

1. Where the name came from 5. A confusing fact


2. Who were the Britons? 6. Moving south
3. Customs of the Britons 7. Unwelcome strangers
4. The birth of other languages 8. Arrival of a new language

A. The Britons were early inhabitants of the island of Great Britain. They lived in the area that is now
known as England, and also in parts of southern Scotland. .They are believed to have come originally
from a region of northern France. They lived in Great Britain up until the time that the Anglo-Saxons
came from Germany in the 5th century.

B. The earliest history of the Britons was written by a Greek man named Pytheas, who lived in a Greek
colony in southern France. Pytheas visited the British Isles, including Ireland, in 330 BC. He called the
islands ‘hai Brettaniai’, meaning the ‘Brittanic Isles’. He called the people there ‘Prettanoi’, which led
to the terms ‘Briton and ‘British’.

C. The Britons controlled most of England and southern Scotland for several centuries. This began to
change as the Roman Empire spread north. During the 1st century AD, the Romans entered the region
by force. The Britons tried to push them back, but realised that the Romans were too powerful. They
had to accept that the Romans were there to stay.

D. The Britons lived under Roman rule from the 1st century AD until the 4th century. Around that
time Rome became much weaker, and Roman soldiers left Britain. Germanic tribes from Europe,
the Anglo-Saxons, soon started to arrive in the east of England. They brought their language with
them, which helped form the English language used in the UK today.

E. After the Anglo-Saxons arrived, the Britons began to split up and form smaller tribes, which eventually
had their own separate customs and languages. By the 11th century, there were the Cornish, Welsh,
and Breton tribes which spoke Cornish, Welsh and Breton. These separate languages are still used by
numbers of people today.

F. One of the tribes that formed after the Britons began to divide was the Bretons. These people left Great
Britain for an area of France now known as Brittany. This region is just over 200 kilometres south
of the British Isles. The Breton language still exists in the region, although most Bretons speak French.
Brittany is sometimes called ‘Little Britain’, in contrast to Great Britain.

G. The term ‘British’ can apply to the British of today and also to the ancient Britons, but in different ways.
One example is with language: the Britons spoke the British language, a language completely different
from English. This is a bit difficult to understand, because today some people commonly use the terms
‘British’ and ‘English’ to mean similar things.

Russia’s northern regions are on the Arctic Ocean, which is a sea that is mostly frozen throughout the
year. There is sea travel from Russia’s shores into this frozen world, but it takes more than a normal ship
to get through it. How do Russians manage to make their way through all the ice?
One way they can do so is with the Yamal. The Yamal is an icebreaker - that is, it’s a ship that is specially
designed to break through the layer of ice which covers the sea in the Arctic and Antarctic. There are many
types of icebreakers used by countries that border the Arctic Ocean, but the Yamal is a special kind. It is
powered by nuclear energy, and not traditional petrol or diesel engines. Because of this, the Yamal is one of
the most powerful ships in the world, allowing it to smash through ice with ease. The ship is made of thick,
strong metal that can break through the ice during its travels. It also has special air jets which are located on
the bottom of the ship. These jets can push out 24 square metres of air per second, which helps to split the ice.
The Yamal is named after the region where it normally stays in harbour - the Yamal Peninsula, an area
of land in north-western Siberia that is rich in natural gas resources. Specifically, the term ‘Yamal’ means
the ‘End of the Land’ in the language of the Nenets, a tribe that lives in the region.
The Yamal was originally designed to keep lanes of travel open for other ships to use in the icy waters.
It has never really been used for this purpose, however. Instead, since it was launched in October 1992,
it has been used mainly to carry passengers on trips into the Arctic region. It has special features such as
a swimming pool, gym, sauna and volleyball court. One of its tourist cruises was to celebrate the millennium
in 2000, when it travelled all the way to the North Pole, making it only the 12th such ship ever to do so.
Another voyage of the Yamal, during August and September 2009, was to collect the staff and equipment
from a number of manned ice stations positioned throughout the Arctic, because these stations were scheduled
to close. Each station was manned by 18 Arctic explorers, who conducted research in the region. The explorers,
their companion dogs and 150 tonnes of supplies and equipment were all placed on the Yamal.
The Yamal is impressive to look at. The lower part of the ship is painted black, the very bottom is red,
and the upper part is an attractive shade of orange. On the very front of the ship is the outline of a mouth
with sharp teeth, to ‘frighten the ice it encounters.

Neptune is the eighth planet from the Sun. It is about 17 times more massive than the
Earth and takes approximately 165 years to go around the Sun. It is a gas giant, like the
other outer planets. This means that it has a small solid core at its centre, with a hot, liquid
layer on top of that. That is then covered in a thick atmosphere. Storms often develop in
Neptune’s atmosphere, and some of them can last for years. You can’t see Neptune with
the naked eye because it isn’t bright enough. It was discovered in September 1846 after
an astronomer noticed changes in the orbit of another planet. Like Saturn, Neptune has a
system of rings around it, although they are not as bright as Saturn’s.

2. Location in the world 6. Facts and figures
3. Rules to follow when visiting 7. Legends of the mountain
4. Tourist travel 8. Climbing paths

A. Mount Elbrus is Russia’s tallest mountain. The mountains highest peak, on the west side of the
mountain, is 5,642 metres high. The mountain has another peak on its east side that is 5,621 metres,
just a few metres lower than the western peak. Its overall height makes it the tenth highest mountain
in the world.

B. Mount Elbrus has a place in the stories of ancient times. In Greek mythology, it was thought to be
where Zeus placed Prometheus for life as punishment for stealing fire from the gods. Because the
mountain is also a volcano that gives off heat and lava, it seemed to make sense for the story.

C. The lower slopes of Mount Elbrus can be reached using a cable car and chairlift systems. From there,
individuals can go up the mountain on what’s known as the Normal Route, which is the fastest as well
as the safest. There are other routes for reaching the top, but they are more dangerous, due to cliffs and
a lack of facilities.

D. Visitors who wish to climb Mount Elbrus must obtain permits in order to do so, and not just one.
Foreigners must get a border zone permit in order to enter certain parts of the mountain. Another
permit is needed to enter the park which surrounds the mountain, and foreigners must register with
the visa and registration department in a nearby town.

E. Mount Elbrus is a volcano, although it hasn’t erupted for 2,000 years. However, there are visible signs
of volcanic activity around the mountain. There are some lava flows around the slopes of the mountain
that look as if they were made in recent years. There are also hot springs in the area and a volcanic
crater at the top of the mountain’s west side.

F. Mount Elbrus belongs to the Caucasus mountain range, in south-western Russia. It is near the border
of Georgia and close to the eastern shores of the Black Sea. As the region is very close to Asia, some
believe the mountain belongs on that continent. Others think it’s a European mountain. If it is, Mount
Elbrus is the tallest mountain in Europe.

G. Although Mount Elbrus is a long way - more than a few hundred kilometres - from the Iranian
mountain range of Alborz, the words ‘Elbrus’ and ‘Alborz’ are connected. ‘Alborz’ comes from the
name of a legendary mountain in Iranian mythology. Because the names of the Russian mountain and
the Iranian mountain range are similar, there is sometimes confusion between the two.

George Orwell was a 20th century British author who is best known for writing the books Animal Farm and
Nineteen Eighty-Four. These two books together have sold more copies than any two books by any other writer
in the same century. They are about how society is controlled and the effects which this has on individuals.
Born Eric Arthur Blair in 1903, he used the name George Orwell as a pen name for his books. He chose
the name ‘Orwell’ because he loved the River Orwell in Suffolk, England, where he lived with his parents
during his early years as a writer. He was educated at Eton, England’s most famous public school for boys
from upper-class families, although his academic performance there was not very good. When he was
19, he took a job as a policeman in Burma, where his grandmother lived. He did well at this job and was
admired by the local people for his sense of fairness. After falling ill, Orwell returned to England in his
mid-twenties and became a writer.
His experiences as a policeman gave him ideas for his early work. In the beginning, he didn’t have
much success as a writer of novels and short stories; he did much better as a journalist. In fact, during
most of his career, he was well known in this role and far less recognised as an author. His essays and
newspaper columns focused mainly on the living and working conditions of poor people.
In the 1930s, he went to Spain to fight in the Spanish Civil War. There, he saw how different people
supporting the Republican army spent more time arguing with and lying about each other than fighting
the enemy. While fighting in this war, he was wounded in the neck and had to return to England. Although
Orwell never lost his sympathy for working-class people, his wartime experiences changed how he felt
about their political leaders.
These new feelings were dearly shown when he wrote his two most famous books. The first one, Animal
Farm, is about a group of animals, all with human characteristics and roles, on a farm which the animals
have taken over from its human owner. A small group of pigs gain more and more power, and treat the other
animals far worse than the human farmer did. His second famous book, Nineteen Eighty-Four, is about a man
who works for an all-powerful government that controls every part of people’s lives. The main character,
Winston Smith, is unhappy with the situation and struggles to change things that can’t be changed.
These two books show us important things about society in a clear and thrilling way. Both are still
taught in British and American schools, and they remain Orwell’s greatest gift to future generations.

As many people who have travelled abroad know well, there is no international standard
for electric plugs and sockets. This means that an electrical appliance with a British plug
Will not plug into a European socket, for example, or an American one. In fact, there
are approximately twenty different types of socket used around the world. A common
solution for travellers is to make use of an adaptor, which enables a plug from one system
to plug into the socket of another. Perhaps one day in the future there will be one system
for the whole world. For now, this lack of an international standard makes it difficult
for manufacturers of electrical equipment. They must produce a different version of a
product for each specific market.

1. It's never too late 5. A lifetime of learning


2. The first big step 6. Independence and responsibility
3. Making the right choices 7. Learning rather than playing
4. Teaching the teacher 8. The highest level of education

A. Education is a process which can occupy us for most of our lives. It teaches us what we need to
know, and prepares us for a life beyond the classroom. It continues as we get older after we leave the
classroom, and it never really stops. We learn not only facts and information, but also the necessary
skills to become a useful member of society.

B. Children usually begin their education with pre-school' classes at the age of 3 or 4. This might seem
too young for some children to be away from their parents, but separation has to happen at some point.
School is the main environment where a child must learn to act as an individual, and the break has to
be made sooner or later.

C. Junior school is where a child encounters formal education for the first time, and the teacher will
actually teach rather than control the kids' playing. This first major change in the nature of education
is the basis of learning to gain knowledge - learning how to learn - as the child realises school is about
much more than simply fun and games.

D. High school, for teenagers, is where it gets serious. So many changes, so many important things to take
into account - exams, friends, appearance - so many choices! What's worse, failure can have extremely
serious effects on a student's future. Students who don't get down to some serious study and pass their
exams will probably not like the consequences.

E. At university, things change again. A student often leaves home for the first time to go to university,
and suddenly, there are problems - like cooking your own food - that have to be solved. The student is
on their own, and has to deal with it. They have earned their freedom, but now they have to live up to
the challenge.

F. And after university, what then? Some people continue their studies to earn a Master's degree or even
a Doctorate, but this level of education is extremely difficult and only a few people have the necessary
skills. Many post-graduate students become academics, and their lives follow a familiar student-teacher
path.

G. Even if someone feels they didn't achieve all they could have done in their school life, we must remember
that age is no barrier to learning. Many people nowadays return to education in their later years to
complete their studies, or gain further professional qualifications, or merely to learn something new.
Mature students bring something new to the classroom, as well as their ‘wise old heads'.

Tetris is a computer game invented in 1984 by the Russian mathematician and computer engineer Alexey
Pajitnov. It is one of the most popular and easily-recognisable video games in the world. The name comes from
a combination of the Greek word ‘tetra’ which means ‘four’ (because all the coloured blocks in the game consist
of four squares, joined in different ways to make various shapes), and Pajitnov’s favourite sport, tennis.
The game itself seems quite simple at first sight. Different shapes fall from the top to the bottom of the
screen, and the player must turn them and move them so as to make a horizontal line of ten blocks with
no gaps. If the player does this, the line will disappear, leaving room for the next blocks. The player moves
through levels of increasing difficulty, with the blocks dropping faster and faster, until they reach the top of
the screen, so no new blocks can fall and the game ends.
Does it sound simple? Maybe, but its simplicity hasn’t limited its popularity. Tetris was the first video
game to be exported from Russia to the USA, marking the beginning of a trend that now sees Russia as a
leader in the video game industry. Tetris was the forerunner and perhaps the greatest of them all. It is still
used today to teach computer science students how to program.
In 2007, the game review site IGN placed Tetris at number two on its list of the 100 greatest video
games of all time. The first Tetris world championships were held three years later. The game also holds
two Guinness World Records for its commercial success.
The Russian origin of the game is shown by the music heard in the background as the game progresses.
The music is actually a melody from a Russian folk song based on an 1861 poem by Nikolai Nekrasov called
‘Korobeiniki’, or ‘The Peddlers’. This is the first of three poems he wrote about Russian peasants. Peddlers
were travelling salesmen who walked from village to village selling things such as cloth, books and other
small items, and the poem concerns the tragic love story between a peddler and a beautiful peasant girl.
There is a strange contrast between the game’s bright colours and light-hearted graphics and the sad
end to the original poem. The song itself ends happily, but the poem ends with the peddler being murdered
before he can return to his love. The song is only the beginning of the poem, and covers the start of their
romance but not its tragic end. Tetris players are usually unaware of this sad tale as they happily play with
the falling coloured blocks.

10 The idea for Tetris came from a game the inventor loved.

and then be ready to read it aloud. Remember that you will not have more than 2 minutes
for reading aloud.

People have known about different forms of electricity for thousands of years, including
natural sources such as electric fish. However, it was in the late 19th century that scientists
began to understand and control electricity. It started to become a part of peoples lives
in a number of developed countries around 100 years ago. Before then, electricity was
seen as a strange force that most people couldn’t afford to have in their homes. Only the
wealthy had enough money to have their large homes connected to the electricity supply.
Gradually, over the course of the 20th century, more and more homes were connected to
national power supplies in many countries. Even so, it is estimated that around 1.3 billion
people today don’t have access to electricity.

Task 2. You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You have to answer six questions.
Give full answers to the questions.

1. The early days 5. Not as popular any more


2. Playing at home and away 6. A colonial history
3. Two countries, one prize 7. Cricket and the media
4. A puzzling pastime 8. The basic rules

A. To a large part of the world, the English national sport of cricket is almost impossible to understand.
Its a game that, to outsiders, looks like a slow, lazy activity which can, amazingly, last for as long as five
days. However, in places where the sport is played, such as Australia and India, cricket has millions of
fans who get very excited about it.

B. Cricket is a game of athletic ability, and also of strategy - a battle between bowler and batsman.
A bowler aims a hard, red ball at a target - the batsmans wicket - and the batsman uses a wooden bat
to protect the wicket. The batsman may be out’ in various ways, such as if the ball hits the wicket, or
another player in the bowler’s team catches the ball. At the same time, the batsman tries to hit the ball
far enough to score runs.

C. Cricket probably started as a childrens game, and the first written mention of the sport is in a court case
from 1598. The game gained popularity in the 18th century. By the end of that century, the Marylebone
Cricket Club had been formed, and established the Laws of Cricket. Their famous cricket ground,
Lords, is still seen as ‘the home of cricket’ today.

D. As the British Empire grew, the game was taken to Britain’s new colonies. All of the countries where
cricket is very popular today - India, Australia, New Zealand, the West Indies and South Africa - used
to be colonies of Britain. The top cricket-playing nations play each other in international games known
as ‘Tests’.

E. Every winter the England cricket team go abroad to play in Test matches against another cricket-playing
nation. They usually play a series of One Day Internationals and 20/20 games, which are shorter forms
of the game, as well as several five-day Tests. In the summer, the England team will play a visiting team
at various grounds around England.

F. The most important Test matches for the England team are the Ashes series, played against England’s
great rivals, Australia. The Ashes were first played in 1882. England and Australia take it in turns to
host the series, and the home team is always under great pressure to win it.

G. For those who couldn’t attend cricket Test matches in the past, a popular way to follow the game was
by listening to commentary on the radio. Nowadays, of course, fans can watch games on TV, or even
online on their computers.

Humans have always been fascinated by the idea of living to a great age. There have been many legends
and tales throughout history about people who were very old. The Old Testament of the Bible claims that
the oldest person ever was Methuselah, who, it is said, lived to be 969 years of age.
In the past, living to a very old age was quite an amazing achievement. There was little to no health
care, and no antibiotics or other reliable medicines. Infant mortality (that is, the number of babies and
small children who die) was very high, and many children did not live to become adults. As a result, those
who managed to live to a great age were usually shown a lot of respect.
Although many people have made claims about reaching ages of well over a hundred, it has often been
difficult to prove their claims, because of poor record-keeping and lack of proper birth certificates. In
some cases, it has been shown that the lives of two people with the same name - for instance, a father and
son - have been claimed as the long life of only one person.
Some parts of the world, such as Ikaria in Greece and Okinawa in Japan, have been shown to have an
unusually high percentage of people reaching the age of 90 and over. There are many theories as to what
causes this. Firstly, and most importantly, it is a matter of genetics. If your parents or grandparents lived
long lives, then your chances of doing the same are much greater. Other things that make a difference are
thought to be diet, lifestyle, and strong social and family ties.
There are still parts of the world where life expectancy - how long the average person can expect
to live - is as low as around 40. However, in most countries in the developed world, life expectancy is in
the late 70s for men and early 80s for women. Research suggests that life expectancy will increase in the
future, and many more people will live to be over a hundred. Some scientists claim that life expectancy
will always continue to climb, and may never reach an upper limit that cannot be passed. Perhaps one day
people will live as long as Methuselah.
In the meantime, those who would like to live a long life should follow some basic rules. Try to lead as
stress-free a life as you can. Eat a diet that is rich in plant-based foods. Take regular exercise and be as active
as possible for your whole life. Have a family and most of all, enjoy your life. Happy people live longer.

People have always told stories about those who lived long lives.

1. Ways of getting there 5. The island’s geography


2. Native animals 6. Weather conditions
3. The island’s symbol 7. Space travel industry
4. History of the island 8. The island’s government

A. The Isle of Man is a small island lying between the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. Although
it is a part of the UK, it mainly rules itself. The UK can apply specific laws to the island, but this doesn’t
happen often, and the island is basically responsible for creating its own laws. Hie UK, however,
is responsible for protecting it in times of war.

B. People who travel to the Isle of Man by plane can see an unusual statue as they leave the airport.
It is three legs spread out like the spokes of a wheel and joined together at the centre. As the saying
goes, whichever way you throw it, it will stand. It represents the Isle of Man, and the image appears on
the island s flag and money.

C. There are companies on the Isle of Man interested in taking people to the Moon. In 2012, one of those
companies announced plans to do so in a few years. The cost of one flight would be around £65 million,
which would be paid for by the individual. There are at least two dozen people interested in these
flights.

D. The Isle of Man is about 50 kilometres long and 20 kilometres wide. There are hills in the north and
south parts of the island, and the central area is a valley. The highest point, in the north, is Snaefell,
which is around 600 metres high. From here, you can see all the territories of the UK - Scotland,
England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

E. Centuries ago, the Isle of Man was part of the Kingdom of the Isles. This area consisted of islands near
western Scotland as well as the Isle of Man. The kingdom lasted for around 400 years and ended in
the 13th century. Afterwards, the Isle of Man became part of Scotland, then eventually England, and is
now closely linked to the UK.

F. The Isle of Man is home to the Manx cat. This cat is unique because it has a very short tail, or no tail at all.
The island is also the home of the Manx Loaghtan sheep. It s dark brown and has four (or sometimes
even six) horns. The horns that grow upwards and outwards can reach around a metre in length.

G. Because the Isle of Man is in the middle of the Irish Sea, it receives plenty of rainfall from storms that
approach from the south-west. Temperatures throughout the year do not vary greatly, and as a result,
it has mild winters and cool summers. The highest recorded temperature on the island is 28.9°C.

Europa is one of the four largest moons of the planet Jupiter. It is the sixth largest moon in the solar system,
just slightly smaller than Earths. Covered in thick ice, it is an interesting moon for scientists to study. Some of
them believe humans should one day visit it in search of life. What makes Europa so important?
The moons icy crust is made of water, which is a necessary ingredient for life. While the surface of the
moon is far too cold for life to exist, scientists believe that there is a layer of liquid water beneath the frozen
surface. Deep inside most planets - and some moons - is energy that generates heat. This could be happening
on Europa, which would melt the ice closer to the inside of the planet. And where there’s water and heat,
there could possibly be life.
Because of this possibility, some scientists would like to send some equipment to Europa to prove, or
disprove, this theory. This equipment would have to break through the surface to reach the liquid lake or
ocean below. Once there, it could release a smaller object capable of travelling through water and collecting
data. The cost of building and sending equipment like this through hundreds of millions of kilometres of
space would be extremely high. Other, less costly space missions are being carried out first.
To explore how scientists think life could exist there - in a place not just cold, but extremely dark - they
look at the Earths oceans. Deep below the surface, there are life forms that survive independently from sunlight,
a fact scientists once thought was impossible. At the bottom of the sea, there are volcano-like openings that
produce heat. Near these openings live giant worms, clams and other types of sea life. They eat tiny bacteria
that live off elements produced by the openings. Its almost like an independent world down there, and almost
completely dark. If something like this can exist on Earth, perhaps it could exist on Europa.
Besides water, oxygen is another necessary substance for life. In 1995, the Hubble Space Telescope
confirmed that the atmosphere of Europa, although very thin, contains oxygen. The ice on the moons surface
can absorb this oxygen. Scientists believe that the oxygen-filled ice could sink into the ocean below the
surface. In this way, Europas watery layer might contain oxygen.
While there are many theories about Europa, it has been shown that water and oxygen are present. This
is a bigger discovery than anything found so far on Earths own moon or the planet Mars. With advances in
technology, we may discover even more things about Europa from here on Earth.

Europa is larger than our own moon.

There are estimated to be around 22,000 different species of ant and scientists have
described about 12,500 of those. In 2013, scientists showed that ants are closely related
to wasps. Ants range in size from 0.75 millimetres up to over 5 centimetres in length.
Ants live in complex social groups, built around a queen ant. An ant colony usually
consists of female worker ants, female soldier ants, male drones and at least one queen.
The queen can survive for up to 30 years, while other ants have a lifespan of around
1 to 3 years. The queen is the only member of the colony who lays eggs, so if the queen
is killed or dies, the whole colony will disappear in time.

1. Rules of the game 5. Too similar


2. Scrabble competitions 6. The game’s makers
3. Record scores 7. Online tournaments
4. History of the game 8. The game’s popularity

A. The game Scrabble was invented by American architect Alfred Mosher Butts in 1938. It wasn’t popular
at first, and it took years to catch on. In 1952, the president of a major US department store, Jack Straus,
played the game on holiday and wondered why he wasn t selling it. He began offering game sets in his
stores and Scrabble became a huge sensation soon after.

B. Scrabble is played by placing tiles on a board to spell words. Each tile has a letter on it, and a small
number at the bottom represents the points you get for placing it. If your opponent believes you’ve
spelled a word that doesn’t exist, they can challenge you. Once all the tiles are played, the scores are
counted up and the highest score wins.

C. Recently, a game that resembles Scrabble showed up on Facebook. Named Scrabulous, it offered players
an online gaming experience. Because the web game closely resembled Scrabble, which is a protected
brand, the makers of Scrabble took the matter to court. They forced the popular Facebook application
to change its name and the appearance of the board.

D. Scrabble is admired for its combination of skill and strategy. Since its invention, it has spread
to 121 countries around the world. Originally an English word game, it now exists in 29 different
languages. Nearly one-third of American families have a Scrabble game in their homes, and over
150 million game sets have been sold.

E. More than just fun, Scrabble is a game of intelligence. Events are held in which players compete
to become Scrabble champions. One such event, the World Scrabble Championship, takes place every
two years in a different major city each time. The last one was in Warsaw, Poland, and the top prize
went to Nigel Richards of New Zealand, who won $20,000.

F. In an average game of Scrabble, a person might end with a score o f200-300, and a better player closer to
500. The highest scores, which usually occur in competitions, are around 800. One man, Phil Appleby
of Hampshire, UK, had a game score of 1,049. Another man, Karl Khoshnaw from Manchester, UK,
had a single word score of 392.

G. Within the USA and Canada, Scrabble is made by Hasbro. This company is the largest producer
of board games worldwide, and it also produces the popular board games Monopoly, Clue (‘Cluedo’
outside North America) and Trivial Pursuit. Outside the USA and Canada, Scrabble is made by Mattel,
a company better known for producing childrens toys.

Ivan the Terrible was a Russian ruler in the 16th century. He ruled the country from 1547 until his
death in 1584. He helped expand Russia into a great empire, was a lover of the arts, and created Russia’s
first publishing house. So what was so ‘terrible about him?
Born Ivan IV Vasilyevich in 1530, he was the son of Vasili III, Grand Prince of Moscow, a title Ivan
took after his fathers death. This occurred when Ivan was just three years old. His mother ruled in his
place, hoping to do so until Ivan was old enough to take on the responsibilities himself. She died, however,
when Ivan was eight years old. Ivan and his younger brother were raised by noble Russian families. When
he turned 16, he was crowned Tsar of All the Russias, the first person to receive the title. This meant he was
the top ruler of Moscow as well as the lands in the region. This began his powerful reign of the country.
The early years of his rule were a time of peace, and he worked to make Russia more modern. In 1553
he created the Print Yard, Russias first publishing house, which used a printing press to make books.
The task had previously been done by hand, and the workers who did this job were not happy about the
new operation. They set fire to the Print Yard, but Ivan had it repaired and it continued making books.
In the years 1555-1561, Ivan ordered St Basils Cathedral to be built. The cathedral still stands today
as a monument to Russia, and is recognised all over the world.
The years afterward were not so lucky for Ivan. His wife died, possibly from poisoning, and the event
seemed to change Ivans character. Russia also suffered from droughts and invasions in the 1560s. These
events caused Ivan to change his policies. At one point, he tried to step down from his duties. The noble
families begged Ivan to change his mind, which he did. He insisted, though, on having total power.
With that, Ivan began to kill members of the noble families that he did not trust. In one terrifying
incident, he killed his own son, whom he had raised to replace him one day. During this period, he fought
to get more power and more control over local authorities.
These events left Ivan with the unfortunate label o f ‘terrible’. The meaning o f ‘terrible’, though, is more
related to creating fear, rather than being evil. His personality didn’t stop him from creating close ties with
England. This allowed Russia to trade with Europe and their relationship continued to grow stronger.
Despite his name, he is remembered today as a man who made Russia stronger and brought it into the
modern world.

Once every four years, February has an extra day - February 29th. This is called a leap
year. Leap years therefore have 366 days rather than 365. The reason for this is that it does
not take the Earth exactly one year to travel round the Sun. In fact, it takes approximately
365.25 days. In other words, it takes a quarter of a day longer than a year. If we did not
have leap years, after four years there would be one day’s difference between our calendar
and reality. However, because 365.25 days is only an approximation, we sometimes do
not have a leap year. There is a calculation to determine this. For example, the year 2000
was a leap year, but the year 1900 was not.

1. So many different words 5. Learning comes naturally


2. Hard to spell it correctly 6. Hard work but worthwhile
3. More speakers than English 7. Could you say that again?
4. Translating your thoughts 8. Strange-looking letters and shapes

A. People learn a foreign language for many reasons - to get a better job, to travel, or simply to enjoy the
culture in question more deeply. People study at school or college, or even while they are working.
It takes a great effort and can be expensive, but it is also rewarding. You can discover a completely new
world through a new language.

B. Learning a foreign language might involve mastering a new alphabet, perhaps Greek, Arabic or
Georgian, all of which can look impossibly cryptic to someone used to the Latin alphabet. But the
teacher will probably insist that learning the new alphabet is extremely important, as a student wont
be able to develop reading or writing skills effectively without it.

C. Sometimes a student of a foreign language can read, listen and speak to a high standard, but their
writing skills may be relatively poor. Active skills (writing, speaking) often lag behind passive skills
(reading, listening), but another factor may be spelling. English is notoriously difficult in this respect -
consider the spelling and pronunciation of the word ‘though for example, and pity the poor student.

D. It might be relatively simple to grasp the rules of English grammar - subject, verb, object, etc - but
many students find themselves struggling to make such easy progress with their vocabulary. There
are said to be around a million words in English, perhaps making it the richest language in history.
It would certainly be exhausting to learn all of them!

E. Even if a student has completed many years of language study, visiting the country where the language
is the mother tongue can still be a challenge. Native speakers often do not realise what is easy to
understand and what is not, and students may find the language they have spent years studying
suddenly impossible to understand in the mouths of the natives.

F. There are some gifted learners who can master a foreign language with ease, and indeed, learn more
than one foreign language to a very high standard. These polyglots’ have a talent for language rather
like a musician has an ear for music. Certainly, the talent needs to be developed and encouraged, but
it is true that they are born with an advantage in learning another language.

G. So what foreign language should you learn and why? You want to meet new people and communicate
with them, so the obvious answer is English, because it is the worlds Tingua franca in the age of the
Internet, apart from anything else. But it is not the most widely-spoken language on earth. It is third
behind Chinese and Spanish, so if you want someone to talk to, maybe you should learn one of these!

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was one of the greatest Russian composers. His work had a great effect on
the development of western music during his lifetime and after his death.
Rimsky-Korsakov was born into a wealthy family in 1844 in Tikhvin. He showed an aptitude for music
even when young, enjoying Russian folk songs and religious music. Despite this early talent, he decided
to enter the naval college at St Petersburg, where his brother had gone before him, and he later joined
the Russian Navy.
During this period he met Mily Balakirev, a pianist and composer, who encouraged him to develop
his talent in music further. Balakirev was also important in the career of another great Russian composer,
Tchaikovsky, and was instrumental in the direction Russian music would take in the late 18th century.
When he wasn’t away at sea, Rimsky-Korsakov had lessons with Balakirev on how to compose music.
He completed his first symphony while on a ship. Through his teacher, he was introduced to other
musicians and composers, and became an important member of ‘The Five’, or ‘The Mighty Handful’, a
talented group headed by Balakirev which also included musicians such as Mussorgsky and Borodin.
When Mussorgsky died, Rimsky-Korsakov completed some of his unfinished musical pieces, and his
arrangement of ‘Night on Bald Mountain is the one generally performed to this day.
Rimsky-Korsakov’s musical education, including a period of intense self-study, was extremely different
to the normal classical education at the Conservatories, or music schools. Because of this, some people
said that he was somehow more authentic, and closer to Russian culture. Certainly, his successful use
of Russian folk music traditions in his classical music shows his love of Russian culture.
Despite his unusual education, in 1871 Rimsky-Korsakov was appointed Professor of Composition
at the St Petersburg Conservatory. His students included Prokofiev and Stravinsky, two more great names
of Russian music, and he continued to write and compose operas, chamber, choral and orchestral music.
Perhaps his most famous piece is ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ from the opera ‘The Tale of Tsar Saltan.
Rimsky-Korsakov died in 1908. In 1944, the St Petersburg Conservatory was renamed the N. A. Rimsky-
Korsakov Saint Petersburg State Conservatory in his honour. Today, Rimsky-Korsakov is still remembered
and admired, as a composer, orchestrator and educator, but most importantly, as one of the outstanding
figures in the creation of Russian classical music.

We have evidence that people were drinking coffee in Arabia in the 15th century.
From there, it spread to Turkey and Africa before reaching Europe. The drink became
fashionable in England in the 17th century and coffee houses opened in Oxford and then
in London. Usually, women were banned from coffee houses in most countries, although
they were allowed to drink there in Germany. Businessmen would meet in coffee houses
and discuss business. Coffee houses were also popular with writers, poets and people
interested in politics. They would meet to drink coffee and discuss the latest news. Today,
a lot of coffee is grown in South American countries, such as Brazil. Coffee is drunk all

A. Andrei Tarkovsky, the celebrated film-maker, was born in Zavrazhye in the Kostroma Region of Russia.
His father was a poet and his mother worked in publishing. When his father left the family in the late
1930s, Andrei and his sister went to Moscow with their mother. It was there that Andrei received his
education, apart from during the war years when they returned to Zavrazhye.

B. Tarkovsky enrolled at a film school in Moscow in 1954. This was an exciting period to be a film student
in Russia. The 50s were a time when Russian society began to be more open towards foreign films,
music and literature. Tarkovsky was interested in a wide variety of film styles, from Japanese films to
those of the great Swedish director, Ingmar Bergman.

C. The first full-length film Tarkovsky made was Ivans Childhood in 1962, not long after graduation.
The film was met with international acclaim and went on to win the Golden Lion prize at that years
Venice Film Festival. Throughput his career, Tarkovsky would continue to win prizes and the admiration
of both critics and cinema fans the world over.

D. During his career as a director, Tarkovsky only made 7 feature films. This is a surprisingly small
number for a director regarded as one of the world’s greats. The most notable of these films are Solaris
and Stalker. Tarkovsky was involved in writing the film scripts for all his films and also wrote a book
on the theory of film directing.

E. There are many themes and images in Tarkovsky’s films. He often uses images of running water, waves
and clouds, as well as bells and candles. Tarkovsky’s use of imagery, his extremely long takes - where
the camera is used like an eye that doesn’t blink - and his preference for black and white, rather than
colour film, give his films a very dream-like quality.

F. Tarkovsky died in Paris in 1986 at the age of only 54. Strangely, both his wife, Larissa, and the actor
Anatoli Solonitsyn, who starred in the film Stalker, also died of the same rare illness that affected
Tarkovsky. No-one is really sure how they got it.

G. Tarkovsky’s reputation as a great director has continued to grow since his death. In recognition of his
contribution to Russian cinema, the Moscow International Film Festival awards an annual prize in his
name. There is a museum dedicated to his life in his home town too. Finally, a minor planet, discovered
by a Russian astronomer, also bears his name.

Since 1970, Worthy Farm, a large dairy farm in Somerset, has been home to one of the biggest and most
popular festivals of contemporary performing arts in the world. Glastonbury Festival is run by Michael Eavis
and his family, the owners of the farm, and attracts around 150,000 visitors for the four days of the event.
The festival does not take place every year. Every third year or so, the fields are given a year off to
recover from the damage caused by all the visitors. During the festival, thousands of people continually
walk through the various fields around the large farm, often in very muddy conditions, causing a variety
of environmental problems in the fields normally used by dairy cattle.
Each field on the farm hosts a different aspect of the festival. The main stage is the Pyramid stage. This is
where most of the big name stars of the world of pop and rock perform. Recent headliners have been Beyonce
and the Rolling Stones. There are also a number of other stages around the site, where music fans can enjoy
different styles of music from electronic dance to alternative rock, as well as ethnic and world music.
But music is not the only attraction at the festival. In the Circus Field, there are contemporary circus
performances, and around the farm there are many large tents where festival-goers can enjoy dance
productions, stand-up comedy and theatre, too. Those who have become tired from all the excitement of the
festival can go to the Green Field to get an aromotherapy massage or to relax in one of the meditation tents.
Accommodation on the site is, for the most part, fairly basic. Visitors are required to bring their own
tents and these are then put up in the special camping areas. The camping areas tend to be very crowded
and many festival-goers forget where their tent is and can spend hours trying to find it. Motor homes and
caravans are not allowed on the main site, but a limited number of special luxury tents, called tipis, are
available for hire in the tipi area. These are perfect for people who find camping in a normal small tent,
all too often in the rain, an unpleasant experience.
The festival is staffed by thousands of volunteers, who perform duties such as serving at food stalls,
cleaning up the site and acting as stewards. They offer their services in return for entry to the festival. This
means that profits from the festival from the sale of tickets, food and drinks can be used to support a large
number of local and national charities rather than a large amount going on paying wages.

Humans have always been fascinated by the Moon. In 1969, for the first time in history,
people travelled to, and walked on, the Moon’s surface. It was an incredible advance for
human knowledge, brought about through advances in technology. Despite that, there
is still much about the Moon we are unsure of. For example, scientists still do not know
how the Moon formed. There are a number of possible explanations for the origins of the
Moon. The most popular theory today is that, 4.5 billion years ago, the Earth collided
with a large astronomical body. This collision had two major effects. Firstly, because of
gravity, the debris came together and formed the Moon. Secondly, it tilted the Earths
axis, which resulted in the seasons we experience today.

3. The look and feel 7. Academic research
4. Many different colours 8. Driving routes

A. Londons taxi drivers are some of the best in the world. They are able to plot a course through the
streets without the use of maps or computerised systems such as GPS. They aren’t even allowed to use
such things, and they cant call their supervisor and ask for directions either. They have to know how
to get to a huge number of destinations by memory.

B. There are 320 different ways of getting around London that a taxi driver knows by heart. They include
over 25,000 streets of the capital. The various routes go past all the major points of interest and they
are the fastest ways to get to them. The points of interest include hotels, public squares, hospitals,
government buildings and stations.

C. Anyone who wants to become a taxi driver in London will have to study for many months. In fact,
the average driver has taken 34 months of courses learning how to get around the city. Student drivers
have to learn the contents of the Guide to Learning the Knowledge of London, which contains maps that
detail the 320 different driving routes.

D. Studies have been carried out on the mental abilities of London taxi drivers. A scientist at Oxford
University conducted one such study. He wondered what happens to their brains after learning so much
knowledge to become drivers. His study showed that the part of their brain that controls memory and
sense of direction had become bigger.

E. The life of one London taxi driver was featured in a documentary. The documentary followed the
lives of people every seven years of their life. One man, Tony Walker, decided to become a taxi driver
at the age of 21. The documentary included his time studying the driving routes of London, which
is required of all London taxi drivers.

E Taxi services appeared in London in the 1600s. A passenger sat in what was known as a ‘hackney
carriage, which a horse pulled to the passenger s destination. Although if s not the standard any more,
these horse-drawn hackney carriages still operate in a few parts of the UK.

G. Modern London taxis come in a variety of styles, some similar to today s cars. Many, however, still have
a classic design from the early to mid 1900s. They are either taxis actually from that time period and
still in use, or they are new models made to look old. With so many of them travelling around London,
it gives the visitor a taste of old world charm.

Russian nesting dolls, or matryoshka dolls, are little wooden dolls set inside one another, going from
smallest to largest. There are usually around seven, eight or nine dolls in one set and they are painted to
look like people - sometimes children, sometimes adults. Every year, hundreds of thousands of tourists
visiting Russia buy them as souvenirs. How did they become so popular?
The first set of dolls was created in 1890. Two men, Vasily Zvyozdochkin and Sergey Malyutin, worked
on the project together, with Vasily carving the dolls and Sergey painting them to look like Russian peasants.
The largest doll featured a farm girl holding a rooster. Sergey was a crafts painter who worked in an area
north of Moscow. The area, the Abramtsevo estate, was known for hosting artists, and some of Russia’s
finest artists stayed there for a time. Savva Mamontov, the owner of the estate, and his wife were impressed
with the dolls. Savvas wife took the dolls to a competition in Paris in 1900. There the dolls won a bronze
medal, and afterwards other doll makers began to make replicas, which were then shipped around the
world.
The inspiration for the dolls is believed to have come from Japan. Vasily and Sergey admired a doll from
the Japanese island of Honshu. However, it is not clear which doll. It could have been the daruma doll, which
is wooden and empty inside. Or, though, the fukuruma doll, which is a set of nesting dolls, with the largest
doll resembling a Buddhist monk. Either of these dolls could have been the one Vasily and Sergey admired.
The themes of the matryoshka dolls are often of farm boys and girls, but since their creation, a variety
of different subjects have been painted on the dolls’ exterior. Some themes include a set of fairy tale
characters, and others celebrate a particular time of the year. There are collections of animals, musicians,
film stars and astronauts. The most recent ones display Russian leaders Putin, Medvedev and Yeltsin.
A mistake some non-Russians make when referring to the dolls is that they call them babushka dolls.
In Russian, ‘babushka means grandmother’. The proper name is ‘matryoshka, which means Tittle matron.
It comes from the female first name, ‘Matryona’.
The design of the dolls has slowly found its way into other objects. Furniture designers have made
a set of tables in which one fits under the other, and there may be three, four or five tables in a set. Some
clothing designs follow the example of the dolls, in which there are several pieces of clothing that make up
one item, and the wearer can remove items and wear them separately.

Some people are afraid of spiders, but these creatures are actually very interesting. When
we think of spiders, we usually think of ones that build webs. These spiders sit and wait for
insects to get stuck in their webs before wrapping them in silk and eating them. However,
not all spiders build webs and some of them hunt insects and then jump to catch them.
One jumping spider that is common in the Northern Hemisphere is the zebra spider. It
is often seen on garden walls and, as its name implies, it has black and white stripes on
its body. Zebra spiders have excellent eyesight, which they use to spot insects and small
spiders. Like a cat, they move slowly towards their prey before jumping on it.

1. How to do it 5. Very unusual designs


2. A lifetime of tree shaping 6. A new home
3. Trees to sit on 7. What it is
4. Crossing a river by tree 8. A tree as a home

A. Tree shaping is a hobby in which a gardener shapes a tree as it grows. It’s often seen in small trees that
have been twisted together. They’re later sold in garden centres and nurseries and make interesting
house plants. A gardener might want to make a simple design with a tree or plant in their garden, such
as a circle or an arch. More complicated structures could be fences, tunnels, or ladders.

B. It’s best to start tree shaping when the plant is really young. One way to shape a young tree is to move
its trunk into a particular place and fasten it there until it can one day hold the shape on its own.
Another way is to create a design out of wire and plant seeds of trees in front of it. As the seedlings
grow, they can be tied to the wire shape.

C. Some of the largest forms of tree shaping involve the work of a tribe of people in India. These people,
the War-Kashi people, began tree shaping hundreds of years ago. Their work involves shaping the
roots of trees. The trees are situated above shallow pools of water. The idea was to create a structure for
getting across the water more easily. The structures still exist today, and because they continue to grow,
they get stronger with age.

D. Axel Erlandson shaped over 70 trees in his life. A farmer living in California, he started training trees
in 1925 as a hobby and continued to do so for the rest of his life. He kept his methods a secret and when
he was asked about how he did it, he would simply say, “I talk to them.” Today, people travel from all
over the country to see them.

E. Tree shapers have created some amazing things from their trees. One man created a series of trees that
look like people. The trunks form their bodies and heads and their arms are branches sticking straight up,
with leaves growing some metres above them. Other tree shapers have created playground equipment for
children to play on, signs within the trunks of trees, and large frames for mirrors and pictures.

E The trees of tree shaper Axel Erlandson are currently on display at Gilroy Gardens in Gilroy, California.
The gardens are like a theme park featuring plants, with rides, attractions and several parks. The owners
of the garden wanted to buy Erlandson’s beautifully-shaped trees to give them a lasting place to live and
flourish after he died. While all of Erlandson’s trees were taken from his farm and planted in Gilroy
Gardens, only 24 of them survived the move.

G. Tree shaping has even resulted in building furniture. One tree shaper, Christopher Cattle, started
shaping his trees into chairs and then cutting the tree down when the chair was the right shape and
size. He even said it was an easier way to make furniture because it took less energy to make it. He has
more than one field of trees being grown into furniture shapes, and he hopes that furniture orchards
will one day replace furniture factories.

The UK is in the far north of the Northern Hemisphere, on the same line as Canada and Russia.
Because of this, you’d think it would be extremely cold in the winter. While it does have cold winters, they
are nothing like the extreme Canadian or Russian winters. Why is this?
The UK is in a fortunate position. It is situated at the north-east end of the Atlantic Ocean. This ocean
has a warm body of water flowing through it called the North Atlantic Current. This current is fed by the
warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The air above this current is warm as well, which means that warm,
tropical air is being pushed up to the UK by this stream.
By the time the air reaches the UK, it has cooled down quite a lot. However, it is still much warmer
than air that comes down from the Arctic and spreads over Canada and Russia. It is this Arctic air that
makes those two places very cold in the winter, with temperatures well below freezing for weeks. It brings
several metres of snow as well. With the North Atlantic Current preventing the Arctic air from hitting the
UK, the country escapes these terrible winters.
The North Atlantic Current has such a powerful effect on the UK’s climate that without it, temperatures
in winter would be 10 degrees Celsius cooler. In parts of the UK closest to where the current meets land,
palm trees can actually grow. At the same position in Canada, polar bears live in their natural habitat.
These warm ocean currents also bring a fair amount of rain. As the moist air from the tropics meets
cooler air over the UK, rainfall occurs. This leads to other weather phenomena as well, such as thick fog
and grey, cloudy skies that last for days.
The further away you get from the parts of the country that directly face the North Atlantic Current,
the less the effects are seen. South-west England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland receive heavy amounts of
rain, but London, in the country’s east, receives only 650 ml a year. That’s less than Rome or New York
City. Compare that to the west, which can receive up to 4,500 ml of rain per year, and you can see the
dramatic effect the current has on weather. As the western UK is quite mountainous, these high lands tend
to block the rain from reaching the east.
In terms of hot weather, the UK does not have many heatwaves. Its position in the north means high
temperatures don’t happen often. Its average highs are in the low 20s in the summer, but the highest
temperature ever recorded was 38.5 degrees Celsius, in Faversham, Kent, in the south-east of England.

Task 1. You are going to read the text aloud. You have 1.5 minutes to read the text silently,
and then be ready to read it aloud. Remember that you will not have more than 2 minutes
for reading aloud.

Chainsaws are portable, mechanical saws which cut by means of sharp teeth on a rotating
chain. Although they are often used for cutting wood, they are also sometimes used to cut
concrete, stone, brick and even ice. Most chainsaws are powered either by a petrol engine
or by an electric motor connected to a rechargeable battery or the mains. Tools similar
to chainsaws go back to the early 1830s. However, it was not until 1918 that the first
portable chainsaw was patented, by a Canadian called James Shand. Using a chainsaw
is highly specialized work. They can be extremely dangerous, and safety clothing must
be worn. Each year, the use of chainsaws is responsible for a number of accidents, some
unfortunately extremely serious.

Task 2. You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You have to answer six questions.

2. A wide range to drink 6. Several different sizes
3. A vegetable for every dish 7. Creativity on a spoon
4. To make you happier 8. A new look at an old recipe

A. Among the many attractions the UK has to offer, food and drink is perhaps unfairly known for
the wrong reasons. The image of tasteless, heavy dishes and endless cups of weak tea may be funny
to foreigners, but a closer look at some of the lesser-known dishes and drinks might reveal some
surprising, and unfamiliar, secrets.

B. The simple sandwich may seem the same old boring, uninspiring snack we all know so well. But your
faithful friend has come a long way since the Earl of Sandwich invented it so he could eat meat without
getting his fingers dirty. Meet ‘The Cemita, a Mexican bread roll filled with chilli, pork, cheese, avocado,
onion and red sauce. Different, eh? Delicious, too.

C. The English are well known for being beer drinkers, drinking millions of pints a year. Other nations
produce and consume beer, but the incredible variety of beer made in the UK is what makes it special.
The thousands of UK pubs offer more than 2,000 different types of beer, ranging from the world-
famous to the unknown. There is a beer for every taste, every occasion, every pocket.

D. Sir Walter Raleigh wasn’t the first person to bring the potato to England, and the English didn’t invent
chips, or French fries. However, the famous vegetable is responsible for the modern phrase chips with
everything’. Chips aren’t the most interesting dish perhaps, but think of all the things the potato can be
used for, and think of all the things chips can go with.

E. Is soup just a liquid of boring vegetables heated up to keep the British warm in the winter? Don’t dismiss
this dish so easily. You can mix and match virtually anything to make a tasty soup. Consider chicken
tortilla soup - chicken, beans, tomatoes, salsa, chillies, tortilla chips and cheese. Bring ingredients
together and see what new blend you can invent!

F. The cream tea is a British tradition. It consists of tea, scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam.
The best place to have a cream tea is in the south-west of England, preferably in a tea room, and most
definitely in the afternoon, at about ‘tea-time’. It’s very English, even though scones actually come from
Scotland.

G. Tea is the classic British drink at work (with the tea-break) and during leisure time (at tea-time).
Tea helps solve every problem. As the British say, ‘There’s nothing like a good cup of tea to cheer you
up’. It’s the simple drink that joins all British people together. There are lots of different kinds of tea,
such as Earl Grey or Lapsang Souchong, but the traditional British cup of tea is a plain breakfast tea.

When the Romans first came to Britain in 55 BC, there was no good system of roads - only dirt tracks
and paths between communities. When they left the island in about 410 AD, they left behind them the
basic network that still serves today as the basis of the modern road system.
At 660 km, the A1 is the longest road in Britain, and clearly demonstrates the Roman art of road
building. It runs from London to the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, and is formed, at least in part, from
the roads the Romans built to connect London and York. Over the centuries, stretches were added and
changed, but it was finally named the A1 in 1921 at the beginning of the age of the motor car.
The rise in car ownership led the British government to consider improving the quality of the road
network, because driving was not as easy or quick as taking the train. The M l was the first ‘motorway’ in
the UK, a fantastic six-lane road between London and Leeds in the north, and its instant popularity when
it opened in 1959 badly affected the railway companies.
In the USA, the names of roads and railways have become well known in popular culture. For example,
Broadway is the oldest north-south street in New York City and certainly its most famous, running the
length of Manhattan island and beyond. When you think of Broadway, you think of the bright lights of
the big city, show business, music and theatre. The road dates back to when the Dutch lived on the island
and the city was named New Amsterdam.
The most famous road in the US is Route 66, which is celebrated in the song of the same name. The
lyrics list the towns along the way from Chicago to Los Angeles, and how romantic they sound - Joplin,
Amarillo, Kingman, Barstow. Apparently, the writer couldn’t think of any words so just filled up the verses
with the place names! Sadly, these smaller towns have suffered in recent years as R66 has largely fallen into
disuse as larger highways became more popular with drivers.
The longest road in the world is often said to be the Pan-American Highway, a system of connected
roads from Prudhoe Bay in northern Alaska to Ushuaia on the southern tip of Argentina, nearly 48,000
km later. It crosses 18 countries, although side-roads lead off into three more. The Guinness Book of
Records recognises its status as the longest road in the world, but critics argue that the ‘Darien Gap’ - 159
km of impassable rainforest between Panama and Colombia - means the highway is not one continuous
stretch and so is not a single road at all.

We are surrounded by colour but we haven’t always understood what produces different
colours. The English scientist Isaac Newton was the first person to separate white light
into different colours. Of course, before that people knew that when light from the sun
goes through a piece of glass it can appear to have the colours of the rainbow. However,
they believed that the glass added the colours. Newton showed that sunlight actually
consists of light of many colours by putting the coloured light together again to produce
white light. In your eyes, there are three kinds of cell that detect red, blue and green light.
That might not sound like much, but in fact it means that you can see around 10 million
different colours.

1. Individual help for richer people 5. The best kind of mother


2. A job for older relatives 6. Mothers helping each other
3. Stay-at-home mums 7. Dad not mum
4. Difficult to balance responsibilities 8. Help from government and business

A. The arrival of a new baby is always an exciting time in any family. However, quite often, juggling work
and family commitments while coping with very young, pre-school children can be very difficult for
modern mums. How do young mothers handle their position of being the main carer in families with
young children today?

B. Women who are full-time working mothers often have to use private child care. Wealthier parents in
Europe may hire a nanny, or an au pair. A nanny is usually a trained child-care worker who takes care
of young children, whereas an au pair is often a young person looking to spend time travelling who
agrees to help in the home in exchange for food and accommodation.

C. Parents who work can put pre-school children into a nursery school or playgroup. Both of these can be
quite expensive, although sometimes the government provides them and they are free. Occasionally,
places of work such as factories and businesses provide creche facilities for young children. However,
this is still not very common in Europe.

D. Working women who cannot afford the expense of private child care and who don t get a place at a free
state nursery school often have to rely on the help of family members. Across Europe, grandparents
are the main unpaid carers of young children during working hours. Retired people give the economy
a big helping hand by providing a free service that helps keep women working.

E. Friends can be a great support network for some working mums. Many young mums take turns looking
after friends children. This method of child care probably applies more to women who have part-time
jobs rather than ordinary full-time jobs, otherwise they would not have time to organise taking turns.
But if there’s a group of mums who can each spare one day, it s a great way to organise child-care.

F. Some mums choose not to work at all while their children are very young. Not all couples can afford
to lose one income though. But for those that can, there are some women who prefer to be full-time
carers of their children at home than passing that role onto someone else at a nursery school, for
instance.

G. Not all primary carers are women. In some homes, it is the man who takes over the main role of child
care. This is especially true for the husbands of high-flying career women who earn large salaries. On
the whole, though, it is still women, all around the world, who are likely to be the main carer for young
children.

The modern tourist industry started with the British seaside resort in the late 19th century. But the story
begins a little earlier, among the upper classes of British society, who began to be interested in swimming, or
‘bathing’ as it was known then, for health reasons in the 18th century. Spa towns like Bath began to attract
growing numbers of visitors. Brighton, with its Royal connections, gained a name as a place for pleasure-
seekers. However, it wasn’t until the middle of the 19th century that other sections of society were able to
travel for leisure purposes.
The Industrial Revolution saw the creation of an urban working class. Workers in factories in cities
such as Manchester were allowed to take one week’s holiday per year. With the coming of the railways
in the 1840s, they could afford to travel. For many of them, their holiday choice was Blackpool.
Until the late 18th century, Blackpool had been a tiny, sleepy hamlet of only a few hundred residents. But
with a seven mile long beach of fine golden sand, it wasn’t long before local businessmen began to see the
possibility of a future for Blackpool as a holiday resort. The first horse-drawn coaches began to run from
Manchester in the 1780s. By the end of the 19th century, Blackpool was Britain’s most popular seaside town.
In order to attract visitors, the town has constantly expanded and developed. A long, wide promenade
was built along the sea-front, as well as three piers and Blackpool’s most famous building, Blackpool
Tower, which is 150 metres, made of steel and iron and looks similar to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. By the
1920s, Blackpool had enough accomodation and attractions to welcome up to 8 million visitors a year.
In the early 1950s, up to 17 million visitors a year went there on holiday.
In the same way as the railways brought Blackpool its wealth, the age of the aeroplane created problems
for the town. With the availability of cheap flights to sunny beaches abroad, British tourists swapped wet and
windy Blackpool for the sunshine of Spain. This was the birth of the foreign package holiday in the late 60s.
But the British seaside resort has not died completely. Although they no longer attract tourists for long
holidays, British seaside resorts like Blackpool are still popular with day-trippers and weekenders. Blackpool
has a reputation as an entertainment centre with many theatres and variety shows. It also has a lively night-life
that attracts many young people and is still popular with grandparents who are keen to enjoy the fresh sea air.

‘Bathing’ meant swimming to improve your health.

from your parents determined whether you have blue, brown or green eyes. The most
common eye colour is brown. More than 55% of people worldwide have brown eyes.
Hazel eyes are light brown in colour, and may also have a green or yellow tint depending
