Aperçu du document


TEST 1
No one can avoid being influenced by advertisements. Much as we may
pride ourselves on our good taste. We are no longer free to choose the things we
want, for advertising exerts a subtle influence on us. In their effort to persuade
us to buy this or that product.
Advertisers discovered years ago, that all of us love to get something for
nothing. These days, they not only offer free samples, but free cars, free houses
and free trips round the world as well.
They devise hundreds of competitions which will enable us to win huge
sums of money. Radio and television have made it possible for advertisers to
capture the attention of millions of people in this way.

Whales are lovely intelligent animals. However they become endangered
species because many people hunt them.

became the national drink in the United States.

TEST 5
Most children are very stressed during exams. Therefore, their results are
generally below their capacities. So, doctors are thinking to find a
solution to reduce this stress. So, what can we do to help them?
Preparation for the test is very important and it starts at home.
Preparation is the work that pupils do before the test. The majority of the
pupils revise only the week of the exams. This method may possibly be
good for few children, but for the majority it may well be the cause of
their failure in the exams.
Preparation in groups may be the best solution to get good results.
You may ask me how? I will tell you. Children who revise in groups may
have better chance of success than those who revise alone because when
they work they can help each other by asking and answering questions
that they might have in exams. Group preparation may also reduce stress
if the children test each other just if they were taking an exam.

A- Reading comprehension and lexis
Activity 1 :

TEST 8
Most children suffer from test anxiety when they take exams. As a result, they
perform below their abilities. So what can we do to help them reduce stress and
score their best? To find out the answer to this question, USA Today spoke to
Professor Malcolm Kane of the University of Texas. We asked him to start
talking about exam preparation. Here is his answer: “ preparation for the test is
very important and it starts at home. Perhaps I should explain the meaning of
the term preparation. By preparation I mean the work that pupils do before the
test. But just how do you go about it? You may ask. Well, the majority of pupils

The robot is the most amazing invention that man has ever made. For
example, in 1987 an American surgeon was able to instruct a robot from a New
York hospital to do an operation in Strasbourg. In the same year astronauts
were able to pilot another robot to take pictures of Mars. Robots are already
capable of doing many difficult and dangerous jobs. You can see them working
in car factories, in mines, in fire departments and in nuclear plants.
Many people think that robots are stupid. This may be true for the old
generation robots. But the new generation robots are not stupid machines at all.
They can hear and speak. They can even smell. Someday soon, I’m sure
scientists will be able to invent robot cooks, which you can instruct to prepare
your breakfast in the morning. They may be able to invent robot students to do
your home work while you just lie in your bed listening to music. And who
knows? They might even invent robot mechanics, which will repair broken
robots. Can robots become the rivals of man in the future? Well they cannot for

There are many differences between London and Canberra although both
of them are capital cities. London is the capital of Britain whereas
Canberra is the capital of Australia.
Canberra is located in the south east of the state of New South Wales
on the Molonglo River. London is located in the south east of England,
on both sides of the Thames River. Canberra is less populated (300, 000
inhabitants) than London (ten million inhabitants).
London was founded 43 AD by the Romans; it is much older than
Canberra whose construction started in 1913.
Both cities are commercial centres, but Canberra is less important than

TEST 14
On week days, British people are busy working all days long. They don’t have
time to prepare their meals at home. They buy “takeaways”. What’s a “take
away”?
It’s a quick meal we get in a restaurant but we take it home to eat. The English
“takeaway” is a speciality of fish and chips. It’s a kind of fried fish served with
chips. We find takeaway restaurants everywhere in Great Britain, like the
“Jack’s fish and chips corner” restaurant. They are typical of the British life. On
week-ends eating a “Sunday lunch” is a tradition in the British families. The
main dishes are roasted beef and the delicious Yorkshire pudding. But the

The hamburger is the most eaten food in the whole world. An American chef

Second World War. Teenagers preferred fast to family meals and bought them
in large quantities.
In 1948 two Dock and Mac Donald opened a drive-in hamburger

TEST 18
Finding healthy balanced diet food can be tricky, especially in a world where
you can find a fast food franchise on every corner.
Food is made up of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, mineral salt and
fibre. Vitamins are very important for natural health. Vitamins A, B, C, D and E
all serve different purposes in the body. Mineral salt include iron, calcium,
sodium and iodine which all serve different purposes. Fibre is needed for
digestion. A lack of fibre can lead to serious colon and rectum issues.
To have a healthy balanced diet you have to eat foods that make up these
components.
In order to find healthy balanced diet foods you must first calculate your
activity level. These foods would include bread, cereal, rice and pasta for the
carbohydrates. The proteins would include meat, poultry, fish and eggs.
The vitamins can be obtained from eating vegetables and fruit. Both these
groups are very important.
Milk, yoghurt and cheese are also very important. They are rich sources of
calcium which is vital for bone strength.

TEST 25
In the future, I want to be a train driver because I love trains. I like speed
and I am fond of travelling. Daddy, who is the station master of the little town
where we live, thinks it is a very good idea. Mammy does not. She says I shall
make myself very dirty and who will wash my clothes? Herself of course and
she will never be able to do it with all her other work.
My- sister Jane thinks that it is better if I become an air pilot. I can’t
become an air pilot because I do not have enough education. I am not a good
pupil in class and I could never pass the examination but I know I shall easily
pass the test set up by the railways.
One of the conditions to be a train driver is to have a good eyesight which
I have and a perfect colour vision which I also have. I never used my eyes in
reading books not even my lessons. So there is a justification in being a bad
pupil. Jane, my sister, who is always first of her class wears glasses!
