IV/ Read the text below and think of the word which best fits each space. Use ONLY ONE word in each space. There is an example at the beginning (O). PETER BENCHLEY LIKES SHARKS Peter Benchley, the author (O) who wrote the novel Jaws, thinks it may be partly his fault that people don't like sharks. The movie, (31)on his book, involved a terrifying monster fish (32)main purpose was to attack anyone (32)everyone in the ocean. In (33), sharks kill approximately 12 people a year. In (34)...................., people kill millions of sharks every year and up to 90 percent of great white sharks have been (35) out. Peter Benchley admits, 'I created something that doesn't exist.' He hopes to set (36)record straight with a new documentary film he has made. The film focuses on same of the more attractive aspects of great white sharks. For instance, one extremely brave diver demonstrates that when you touch a shark on the nose, (37)goes very still. Benchley grew up in Massachusetts in the US and (38)..a large part of his childhood swimming in the ocean. He got the idea for Jaws from a newspaper article about a man who caught a shark which weighed about 2,000 kilos. When the movie was made, Benchley had the opportunity to ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Designed by Du Huyen Trang 2

V/ Read the text below. Use the word given in capitals at the end of each line to form a word that fits the space in the same line. There is an example at the beginning (O). THE TRAINING PROGRAMME If you're (O) interested in getting fit, then what you need is a training programme.

It all started in early childhood when my father used to enjoy making up stories for my brother

61 and myself. This was a hugely popular every night at bedtime. As we grew older, we turned 62 to books and by the time I was ten, I had a large collection of these children's literature. Ever 63 since I can remember, I have read about a book a week and I am get through lots and lots of 64 magazines too. I especially enjoy reading in bed and if I am really enjoying a book, I will 65 stay up all night to finish it. But I also tend to fill my spare up time with reading. You will 66 often see me reading on the bus, for example, or if I am waiting from in a queue. I never go 67 anywhere without something to read. I actually collect magazines and I have a room at home 68 filled with them. I even buy magazines written in languages that I don't know, just for the 69 pleasure given of looking at the pictures and seeing the way they are designed. It will come 70 as no great surprise, therefore, if I will tell you that my main ambition in life is to become an editor.

IX/ Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions. In the West, cartoons are used chiefly to make people laugh. The important feature of all these cartoons is the joke and the element of surprise which is contained. Even though it is very funny, a good cartoon is always based on close observation of a particular feature of life and usually has a serious purpose. Cartoons in the West have been associated with political and social matters for many years. In wartime, for example, they proved to be an excellent way of spreading propaganda. Nowadays cartoons are often used to make short, sharp comments on politics and governments as well as on a variety of social matters. In this way, the modern cartoon has become a very powerful force in influencing people in Europe and the United States. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Designed by Du Huyen Trang 5

Guide teacher: Ms. Nguyen Thi Lan Class: 11B CNN -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Unlike most American and European cartoons, however, many Chinese cartoon drawings in the past have also attempted to educate people, especially those who could not read and write. Such cartoons about the lives and sayings of great men in China have proved extremely useful in bringing education to illiterate and semi-literate people throughout China. Confucius, Mencius and Laozi have all appeared in very interesting stories presented in the form of cartoons. The cartoons themselves have thus served to illustrate the teachings of the Chinese sages in a very attractive way. In this sense, many Chinese cartoons are different from Western cartoons in so far as they do not depend chiefly on telling jokes. Often, there is nothing to laugh at when you see Chinese cartoons. This is not their primary aim. In addition to commenting on serious political and social matters, Chinese cartoons have aimed at spreading the traditional Chinese thoughts and culture as widely as possible among the people. Today, however, Chinese cartoons have an added part to play in spreading knowledge. They offer a very attractive and useful way of reaching people throughout the world, regardless of the particular country in which they live. Thus, through cartoons, the thoughts and teachings of the old Chinese philosophers and sages can now reach people who live in such countries as Britain, France, America, Japan, Malaysia or Australia and who are unfamiliar with the Chinese culture. Until recently, the transfer of knowledge and culture has been overwhelmingly from the West to the East and not vice versa. By means of cartoons, however, publishing companies in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore are now having success in correcting this imbalance between the East and the West. Cartoons can overcome language barriers in all foreign countries. The vast increase in the popularity of these cartoons serves to illustrate the truth of Confuciuss famous saying One picture is worth a thousand words. 81. Which of the following clearly characterizes Western cartoons? A. Originality, freshness, and astonishment. C. Enjoyment, liveliness, and carefulness.
