Passage 1 i. 1-5 C A C D A ii. 1-5 F T T F F Young people in the United States have a wide variety of interests apart from their school work. As children, both boys and girls play many of the same games. They swim, play baseball and basketball, go boating and camping, and have fun in many kinds of sports and outdoor activities. Many youth organizations give young people a chance to develop and broaden ttieir interests, and to gain experience in working with others. Among these groups are the Boy Scouts, which serves more than four million boys, the Girl Scouts, with nearly three million girls, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, with over one million participants. These and other groups are guide by adults who volunteer their services. Civic. cultural and religious groups also sponsor special programs for young people. In farm areas, boys and girls learn to work together in agriculture, homemaking and citizenship activities. They compete for prizes in raising farm animals and growing crops. Secondary schools offer students a wide variety of activities to develop talents and skills. There are clubs for photography, music, theater, art, stamp collecting, natural science and debating. Often schools have orchestras, bands and singing groups as well as a variety of competitive sports for both boys and girls. Most schools and colleges have some form of student government with elections to choose class representatives. These elected officers speak for their fellow students at student council meeting with teachers and schaof officials. They also organize social activities and take part in such community projects as fund raising for charity. Many young people hold part-time jobs after school hours. Thousands earn money by delivering newspapers or helping look after young children in private homes. Later, when they go to college, many youths continue to work part-time at a variety of jobs to help pay
their expenses. For several weeks during the summer vacation, about five million school-age children go to camps where they get plenty of recreational activities and learn various skills. There are more than 10,000 camps operated by private citizens and organizations. College students often workas counselors at these camps. Passage 2 i. 1-5 C D A D B
Most worthwhile careers require some kind of special training. Ideally, therefore, the choice of an occupation should be made even before the choice of a curriculum in high school. Actually, however, most people make several job choices during their working lives, partly because of economic and industrial changes and partly to improve their positions. The "one perfect job" does not exist. Young people should therefore enter into a broad flexible training program that will fit them for a field of work rather than for a single job. Unfortunately many young people, knowing little about the job market or themselves for that matter, choose their lifework on a hit-or-miss basis. Some drift from job to job. Others stick to work which they neither like nor suit. One common mistake is choosing an occupation for its real or imagined prestige. Too many high-school students - or their parents - choose a professional field, disregarding both the relatively small proportion of workers in the profession and the extremely high educational and personal requirements.The imagined or real prestige of a profession or a "white-collar" job is not a good reason for choosing it as a life's work. Moreover, these occupations are not always well paid. Since a large proportion of jobs are in mechanical and manual work, the majority of young poeople should give serious consideration to these fields. Before making an occupational choice, a person should have a general idea of what he wants out of life and how hard he is willing to work to get it. Some people desires social prestige, others intellectual satisfaction. Some want security, others are willing to take risks for financial gain. Each occupational choice has its demands as well as its rewards. Passage 3 In Bill Gates’ book for high school and college graduates, there is a list of 8 things they did not learn in school. Listen and decide if you find them useful for your future. The 8 things are:
  1. Life is not fair, get used to it.
  2. The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
  3. You will not make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice president with a car or a phone, until you earn both.

  4. lf you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He or she doesn't have tenure.
  5. If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
  6. Your school may have done away wrth winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
  7. Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
  8. Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. Part D

  2. W: I think I’ll take my mother to that French restaurant on the Main Street for her birthday. M: I hope it’s not any time soon. They’re usually booked up weeks in advance. Q: What does the man mean?
  3. M: You know. I have been watering my plants regularly, but they are still not doing well in my new dorm-room. W: Maybe instead of keeping them in the corner, you should put them directly in front of the window. Q: How can the plants do well according to the woman?
  4. W: I’ve got a headache. Sick in bed, I’ve read most of those magazines twice. M: Well, if it’ll help, I’ll run to the store and get you some new ones. Q: ?What will the man probably do?

  5. M: Is there a candy machine in the building? W: Aha, it’s down the hall on your left, but it has an “out-of-order” sign on it. Q: What information can you get about the machine?

  7. M: Could I look at your bus-schedule? I don’t want to drive to work tomorrow because it’s snowing. W: You’ll be better off calling the terminal. It’s been a long time since I’ve used my schedule, and I’m sure it’s out of date. Q: Why does the woman suggest the man call the terminal?
  8. M: Come on, Sue. I know you have a new camera, but you just took a picture of a car. W: No, no. Look behind the car! Q: What does the woman mean?
  9. W: I’m going to Chicato on business. And somebody said you were the right person to talk to about what I can do there for fun. M: You bet I am. I hope you’ve got at least a month. Q: What can be inferred from the man’s words?
  10. W: Hi, Henry. It’s Betty from the apartment next door. I’m in school right now. and I realize I forgot my keys at home. Could you ask the building manager to put the extra set in my mailbox? M: I don’t think that is secure enough. I can just drop by your class later. Q: What will the man probably do?
  11. W: Professor Nelson, could you please turn up the temperature in here? I’m having trouble concentrating. M: Yeah. I understand, but I don’t control the thermostat. Tell you what. I’ll talk to the janitor about it after class. In the meantime, I suggest you put on a sweater if you brought one. Q: Which of the following choices I true according to the conversation?
  12. W: I’ve just found out the creative writing class is full. Now I have to wait another whole year to get in. M: Why don’t you check back after the first week? Somebody might drop out. Q: What does the man suggest the woman do?
  13. M: Do you have hot water in your dorm? We haven’t had any for three days, and I hate cold showers. W: Oh, sounds miserable. Since the gym’s usually open, why don’t you just go over there till they fix the problem? Q: What does the woman suggest the man do?
  14. W: With a cold that bad, I think it’s pretty foolish not to see a doctor. M: Don’t worry. It’ll pass in a few days. Q: What does the man mean?

  15. W: Professor, have you graded my term paper yet? M: To tell you the truth, I’ve been tied up in committee meetings all week. Q: What can be inferred about the paper? Passage 1 i. 1-5 B D C A D ii. 1-5 F T T F F English food has a bad name abroad. This is most probably because foreigners in England often have to eat in more common restaurants, where it is necessary to prepare food rapidly in large quantities. Of course the food isn't very delicious, though quite nourishing. It is rather dull and not always attractively served. Moreover, the Englishman eating in a cheap or medium price restaurant is usually in a hurry - at least at lunch - and a meal eaten in a leisurely manner in pleasant surroundings is always far more enjoyable than a meal taken hurriedly in a business-like atmosphere. In general, it is possible to get an adequate meal at a reasonable price; in fact, such a meal may be less expensive than similar food abroad. For those with more money, there are expensive restaurants for them to spend money in. In many countries, breakfast is a snack rather than a meal, but the traditional English breakfast is a full meal. Some people have porridge to begin with. If porridge is prepared from coarse oatmeal, it is a tasty, cheap, and nourishing dish, especially when eaten with milk or cream, and sugar or salt. Then comes a substantial, usually cooked, course such as eggs, sausages and bacon. Afterwards comes toast, with butter and jam, and perhaps some fruit. Tea or coffee is drunk with the meal. Many English people now have a full breakfast only on Sunday morning. The traditional English meal is based on plain, simply-cooked food. British beefsteak
