B)The following text is from a radio programme in which young people from around the world are interviewed about learning English. Complete the text by choosing the best alternative in each case. List your alternatives on your answer sheet as shown in the box:


Example: All the students speaks / speak / speaking / spoken (11) English fluently.

Answer: 11 - speak

Xi Li: For Chinese people, including me, English pronunciation is a big challenge. For one thing the languages are just so incredibly different, so it takes a good deal of practice to produce the right sounds! But I think it’s also important to remember that many of us doesn’t hear / aren’t hearing / don’t hear / don’t hearing (1) much English on a daily basis. In fact, for a lot of students the English lesson is the only forum where you hear the language. And since English teachers have often never been outside China, the English you hear there is far from perfect.

Ulrika: I feel it’s a great pity that in Germany, English language television programmes are usually dubbed rather than subtitled. I remember I had a Swedish exchange student staying and we watch / watched / was watching / were watching (2) the film Mr and Mrs Smith when she started laughing. She said it was so weird to hear Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie arguing / argued / have argued / to argue (3) in German!

Tore: I guess we’re pretty lucky in Norway in that case. Dubbing is not common there, except perhaps for programmes and films for children. English is everywhere in Norway – just turn on the TV and you getting / you gets / you’ve got / you’ve getting (4) a free English lesson. In fact, some people are afraid that there’s too much of it and that it’s displacing Norwegian. I feel that way myself. For example, I think it’s silly when bands and artists prefer to sing in English rather than in their mother tongue.

Pierre: We French have never been famous for our good English! I don’t know why that is – I think it’s / there’s / there are / there’s being (5) maybe a sort of rivalry which has led to unwillingness on both sides. Because the English are no better at French, I can assure / inform / insure / reassure (6) you! But there is a new awareness in France now that a good command of English is very important if you want to communicate with the rest of Europe, not to mention the world.

Dominique: I can identify with what you’re saying, Pierre. You’d think that, growing up in Canada, I would have been exposed to English from the / a / an / my (7) early age. But it’s not so. In the French-speaking part of the country you’d be surprised how little English you hear. I remember we went on vacation to the States when I was little, and I got quite annoyed with the children there because they wouldn’t speak properly!

Mohan: In India it very much depends on the circumstances you grow up in. My parents were both in higher education and very keen that I should teach / learn / teaching / to learn (8) the language when I was very young. Sometimes we would speak English at the dinner table, rather than Hindi, just to give me practice. So I’ve never really felt that English was a completely foreign language. That’s very fortunate for me, because currently I am studying / have studied / study / studies (9) medicine in Mumbai and all the teaching is in English.

PART II: Reading Comprehension



  1. Read the text carefully.

Introduction: Safety at the Workplace

Every job is dangerous in some way. People who work in offices sometimes work too hard, and their health suffers. For example, they may have high blood pressure and even have heart attacks.

 

Millions of people who work in factories, on building sites or in the transport industry work in unhealthy conditions. They may suffer because of bad ventilation, dangerous chemicals or noise pollution. If a workplace is not safe, workers can fall and hurt themselves badly. And lots of people are killed or hurt in fires.



 

Drivers must make sure their trucks are in good condition, and they must not drive if they are tired or stressed. Building workers must take great care in bad weather, and they must make sure they keep their equipment in good condition and use it correctly. If you work with machines, do not wear loose clothing, and if you have long hair, keep it away from the moving parts of the machine.

 

We do everything possible to prevent accidents. Governments make laws about safety. Factories have safety equipment like guard rails. And workers use special clothing like strong gloves and protective footwear. There are special techniques for jobs like lifting heavy loads and working at computers. Finally, use your head! Keep your workplace clean and tidy, use the right tools, be careful with electricity, read instructions, and take a break when you feel tired. And if you are not sure about something – ask someone who knows.
