Task 1

Прочитайте текст и вопросы. На каждый вопрос 16-20 выберите правильный ответ A, B, C или D.

Five miles across the water from the town of Reachton the group of islands known as the Herndigs is situated. The main island is St George. Separated by a narrow channel of water is St George’s little sister, St Margaret. People first lived on these islands 1,500 years ago. By the 1950s population had gone down to below twenty and in 1960 the last person left the islands. But in 1991 two families moved back and since then more people have followed. Tourists now visit these islands regularly to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Visit the one shop on the islands, which sells butter, cheese and bread produced by the families who live there. The produce is also taken by boat to restaurants in Reachton where it can be enjoyed by visitors to the area. Perhaps more interestingly, a range of perfumes are made from the wild flowers and herbs which grow on the island and can be bought in the shop. They are produced mainly for export and are very special. So a visit to the shop is a must!

St George island is easily explored on foot, but in the interests of safety, visitors are requested to keep to the main footpaths. From where the boat lands, go along the cliff until you reach a steep path signposted to the church. When you get there it is worth spending a moment in this lovely old building. Carry on along the same path which continues to climb to the highest point on the island. There is a wonderful view from here along the coastline. If it is warm, you may like to finish your day relaxing on the beach. Priory beach on the eastern side of the island is safe for swimming. Sandtop Bay on the western side is the other sandy beach but swimming is not advised here.

It is possible to hire a boat across to the islands or you can take one of the boat trips which depart from Reachton harbour in summer, Monday – Friday. The islands are always open to the visitors apart from on Sundays. Buy a ticket for a boat trip from the kiosk in Reachton harbour. The charge for landing on the islands is included in the ticket but, if you take your own boat, remember to take some money. The crossing takes thirty minutes and boats run every fifteen minutes.

Before you set off on a trip, visit the exhibition centre which tells the history of the islands and gives information about birds and wildlife you may see when you get there.

16. Why had the population of the island gone down before 1961?

A Because people had left the island.

B Because the island is very far from Great Britain.

C Because of the environment.

D Because the islands had disappeared.

17. What souvenirs can tourists buy on the islands?

A Some exported dairy products.

B Some perfumes.

C Some food and perfumes.

D Some bread.

18. Why should visitors keep to the main footpaths?

A Because the islands are not inhabited.

B Because the roads are very bad.

C Because it is dangerous.

D Because there are no rescue teams.

19. Where is it better to swim?

A You cannot swim anywhere.

B From the Priory Beach.

C From the Sandtop Bay.

D In the Reachton harbour.

20. When is landing on the islands free?

A If you go on Sunday.

B If you go in summer.

C If you go by your own boat.

D If you go by a boat trip.

Task 2

Read the text and mark the sentences (21-30) true (T) or false (F).

Police Spell Out Graffiti Mania Fears

A secret police report has built up a profile of the typical graffiti vandal. It seems that the average vandal is usually a male, aged 15 to 19, from poor family.

His “addictive habit” costs million of pounds every year, according to the report by British Transport Police anti – graffiti squad. They estimate that more than & 2 million is spent cleaning trains in London alone.

The report suggests that graffiti is the work of small groups. They are motivated by the need to get attention by making some form of statement. More than a third of the vandals who are caught do it again, which suggests that graffiti is addictive.

The survey of 150 graffiti vandals arrested last year showed that 40 per sent of offenders are university students or still at school – and 99 per sent are male. Just over 17 per sent are unemployed.

The report says graffiti is dangerous – four youngsters have been killed while trying to paint trains in the Underground.

The police have been visiting schools and writing to parents to try and prevent young people becoming vandals. They are also using handwriting experts to identify the “tags” of graffiti artists. In London alone there were over 150 graffiti arrests last year, but police recognize the vandals will continue unless they are stopped, because graffiti writing is so addictive.

21. Most graffiti vandals are men.___________

22. The police do not use handwriting experts. _______________

23. The majority of graffiti vandals are students. ______________

24. It is easy for graffiti vandals to stop. _________________

25. Graffiti writing can be dangerous._____________

26. Graffiti writing is against the law._________________

27. Graffiti artists act in big groups. _____________________

28. Graffiti is a form of statement.____________

29. There were 150 graffiti arrests last year. _______________

30. Forty per cent of 150 arrested vandals are unemployed. ______________

Listening comprehension

Part 1

You will hear boy's story about his life in New York. For each question (1-5) choose the correct answer A, B or C. You will hear the text twice.

Now you have 30 seconds to look through the items.

(pause 30 seconds)

Now we begin.

My name is Martin Mitchell. I live in New York with my mother and two elder sisters.

I have always been well taken care of. Since my father died of a heart attack, my two sisters Sara and Eleanor and my mother have been taking care of me, their little boy. When my sisters got married and moved out of the apartment it was just mother and me who left.

We lived in an old apartment. I spent most of my life there. The window was often open and sounds from the streets mixed with the talk shows from the radio that my mother always kept on.

Like many other students I bussed to school every morning. I tried to do well at school and my aim was to go to college. At college I learnt with ease and some teachers said that I would make good.

When I finished college and went to the Police Academy, my mother was really proud. She thought that I would get a Job in the city and be able to stay near her. But I was offered a job in Arizona. It was a real shock for her.

She didn't want to part with me; she got used to look after me. My mother cried a long time.

I told her there was no reason in the world to get upset, that's not far away and I could still talk to her on the phone. But my mother threw quick sharp looks in my direction and kept silent. She was in blank despair.

Sara tried to save me. She said, “Mummy, he'll come back here and visit. Won't you, Marvin? And weekends he'll call you when the rates go down.”

I replied that I would call her even if the rates are up.

But my mother suddenly told me not to waste money like that. She added that I should learn to save. The idea of encouraging me towards thrift aroused my mother from her state. She had a purpose again: looking after me.


Now listen again.

Earth Day

We celebrated Earth Day in my city last week. The idea of this special day began in the 1960s when life was very different. Few people talked, or even thought, about the environment. Most people had no idea how dirty our air and water were. This attitude bothered Gaylord Nelson, who was a senator in the US government, and he had an idea. If people around the world knew the planet was in danger, they might work harder to save it, so he just needed to get their attention. The first Earth Day was just in the United States but it led to events every year all around the world on April 22 or the nearest weekend, depending on where you are.

In my town, last Saturday afternoon lots of people rode their bikes from the park, around the town together and back to the park, taking as much time as they possibly could, so that the cars had to wait. Then we talked to all the drivers in cars which just had one person in them, to explain how wasteful that is and how much pollution it causes. The idea was to make people think about how much they use their cars. In other places, people collected plastic bags for a week and then made a pile of them in the town square. You can do anything as long as it makes people of all ages come together for a few hours and talk about the environment. Last year we had a big music event for young people. Some people said it was a waste of time, but there was information for people to read and announcements between the bands about how to help protect the environment.

1. For the first time since 1948, the British capital will host the summer Olympic Games. It was the fourth participation of Britain in the battle to host the games after failed attempts of Birmingham for the 1992 Olympics and Manchester for 1996 and 2000. "I’m looking forward to what I’m sure will be a fantastic Olympic Games,” said Prince William.

3. It’s calculated that Joanne Rowling, the author of very famous books about Harry Potter, is earning $36,000,000 daily and her total profit is already more than $1,000,000,000.

4. In 2005 " Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” broke the previous record of Potter series itself as wall as all other records had ever held by freshly published books: more than 8.9 million copies had been sold within 24 hours since the moment of release.

5. The word "hamburger” comes from the name of the German city Hamburg and not from the word "ham”, and so the word "cheeseburger”, sometimes used to mean a similar kind of sandwich with cheese instead of meat, is based on a false analogy.

     There is something about the English Channel that has always fascinated the human race and it has always played a special role in British history. The sea itself has always been important to mankind but the Channel often created a barrier between Great Britain and the Continent. This barrier has existed for more than 12,000 years and the desire to break it has occupied the minds of many people for almost two hundred years.
     The construction of the tunnel is perhaps the most incredible engineering project of the 20th century. In fact its completion was called a "technical triumph”.
     However, the first proposal to build a Channel Tunnel appeared in 1802, when a French engineer presented his project for two tunnels to cross it. Historians say Napoleon was interested in that plan. But Napoleon was more interested in fighting the British than in linking the two countries, and shortly afterwards a new war between England and France began. There were many other plans to build a tunnel but unfortunately all of them failed. It was not until after the last war that Britain and France began seriously considering the project. On the 12th February, 1986, Mrs. Thatcher and President Mitterrand signed the Franco-British Treaty which allowed the construction and the operation of the Channel Tunnel. The tunnel was completed eight years later.
     It is now very quick and easy to cross the Channel. You don’t have to book a ticket. The Channel Tunnel trains operate twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year. You can now cross the Channel in thirty-five minutes. At last the great barrier has been broken.
     In 1996, the American Society of Civil Engineers, with Popular Mechanics, selected the tunnel as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

1. What has always been important to all people?
a. The English Channel.

c. The tunnel.

2. What did Europeans want to do for many years?
a. To create a barrier between Great Britain and the Continent.
b. To sign a contract on the construction of the tunnel.
c. To connect Great Britain and the continent by train service.

3. When did the Channel Tunnel begin to function?
a. In 1994.
b. In 1986.
c. In 1996.

4. Who proposed the first plan to build a tunnel under the Channel?
a. Napoleon
b. A French engineer.
c. President Mitterrand.

5. When did the construction of the tunnel become possible?
a. After the treaty had been signed.
b. After the engineering project had been presented.
c. After many other plans had been discussed.

6. Why is it easy to cross the Channel at present?
a. The tickets are cheap.
b. The tickets are sold everywhere.
c. The trains go day and night.

7. What is the best title for the text?
a. Engineering Projects.

TASK 2 READING (10 points)

Time: 20 minutes

  1. Read the text and do the tasks below.

A company in Japan is selling a new drink. Their new drink is a powerful mixture of powered ginseng root, a fun­gus from the skin of caterpillars and reptile's blood. This strange drink, people say, is helping Chinese women athletes to win gold medals at international athletics meetings. The Japanese firm says that this mixture can do wonderful things for ordinary people too.

Mr. Ma Junwen is the trainer of the Chinese women's athletics team. He created the recipe for this peculiar cock­tail of roots and fungus and blood specially for the team. His runners train in the mountains of central China. They run 30 or 40 kilometres every day, so they are all very strong runners. But they all drink Ma's cocktail every day too ... and they are winning more medals nowadays than they did before. And Mr. Ma is trying to market his odd mixture through the company in Japan. People in Japan know about Ma's runners and they are rushing to buy a bottle of his amazing drink.

So Mr. Ma is winning, too, not only runners. Before he invented his drink, he was not a rich man, but now he is making a lot of money from the drink, and people in Japan love it!

He climbed up on to a stool by the window and looked out. There was a large, interesting garden below, with a small pond and several trees which looked good for climbing. Beyond the trees he could see some more houses stretching away into the distance. He decided it must be wonderful living in a house like this all the time. He stayed where he was, thinking about it, until the window became steamed up and he couldn’t see out any more. Then he tried writing his name on the cloudy part with his paws. He began to wish it wasn’t quite so long, as he soon ran out of cloud and it was rather difficult to spell.

“All the same” – he climbed on to the dressing-table and looked at himself in the mirror – “it’s a very important name. And I don’t expect there are many bears in the world called "> If he’d only known, Judy was saying exactly the same thing to Mr Brown at that very moment. The Browns were holding a council of war in the dining-room, and Mr Brown was fighting a losing battle. It had been Judy’s idea in the first place to keep "> “After all, Henry,” argued Mrs Brown, “you can’t turn him out now. It wouldn’t be right.”

Mr Brown sighed. He knew when he was beaten. It wasn’t that he didn’t like the idea of keeping "> “I’m sure we ought to report the matter to someone first,” he said.

“I don’t see why, Dad,” cried Jonathan. “Besides, he might get arrested for having come illegally from another country if we do that.”

Mrs Brown put down her knitting. “Jonathan’s right, Henry. We can’t let that happen. It’s not as if he’s done anything wrong. I’m sure he didn’t harm anyone travelling in a lifeboat like that.”

“Then there’s the question of pocket money,” said Mr Brown, weakening. “I’m not sure how much pocket money to give a bear.”

“He can have a pound a week, the same as the other children,” replied Mrs Brown.

Mr Brown lit his pipe carefully before replying.

“Well,” he said, “we’ll have to see what Mrs Bird has to say about it first, of course.” There was a triumphant chorus from the rest of the family.

“You’d better ask her then,” said Mrs Brown, when the noise had died down. “It was your idea.”

Mr Brown coughed. He was a little bit afraid of Mrs Bird and he wasn’t at all sure how she would take it. He was about to suggest they left it for a little while when the door opened and Mrs Bird herself came in with the tea things. She paused for a moment and looked round at the sea of expectant faces.

“I suppose,” she said, “you want to tell me you’ve decided to keep that young "> “May we, Mrs Bird?” pleaded Judy. “Please! I’m sure he’ll be very good.”

“Humph!” Mrs Bird put the tray down on the table. “That remains to be seen. Different people have different ideas about being good. All the same,” she hesitated at the door, “he looks the sort of bear that means well.”

“Then you don’t mind, Mrs Bird?” Mr Brown asked her.

Mrs Bird thought for a moment. “No. No, I don’t mind at all. I’ve always had a soft spot for bears myself. It’ll be nice to have one about the house.”

1. "> A. inside the house.

B. outside the house.

C. on the roof of the house.

2. "> A. had lived in the house long.

B. would like to live in the house.

C. liked to climb the trees in the garden.

A. to keep the bear at home.

B. to tell the bear to leave the house.

C. to give the bear any money.

Task 3
























Look at Part 1 ↑

Erica: So, Ben, how often do you and Liam actually get together these days?

Ben: Whenever I can, Erica. Usually about once every two months.

Erica: I don’t think that’s enough, really, to keep a friendship going. Couldn’t you
visit him each month, or ask him to come here?

Ben: Well, it’s a long way to go. More than 400 kilometres, I think.

Erica: How long does it take?

Ben: Over six hours, each way. So you spend half the weekend on the coach, going
up and down the motorway. It’s so boring.

Erica: How about taking the train? Wouldn’t that be quicker?

Ben: I don’t think I could afford it. The fares are really high.

Erica: Why don’t you get a student travel card? Your tickets would be a lot cheaper.

Ben: Hmm. That’s an idea.

Erica: And Liam could get one, too. Then he could sometimes come here on
Saturdays and Sundays to see you.

Ben: I don’t think he’s keen on doing that. He likes his new town a lot. He wants to
stay there at weekends, he says.

Erica: I see. So you go and see him, but he never comes here.

Ben: I’m sure that’s because there’s so much to do there. It’s an exciting town, and I
know he’s made new friends there. But we get on really well and we are not suddenly
going to stop being friends.

Erica: No, I’m not saying that at all. But maybe you need to remind him that you’ve
been friends since you were little kids. And tell him how important a friend he is to
you. He might not realise that, especially with all the changes in his life right now.
