Timpul efectiv de lucru este de 180 minute. Punctaj total: 100 puncte. Nu se acordă puncte din oficiu. 25p I. Write the middle paragraph of the narrative below, including the following 10 words: bruise, punched, teachers, manners, called, swearing, suddenly, locker, face, violently. (100-150 words) Yesterday morning, Sarah Parker was approaching the main entrance at her sons’ school, and was about to open the door when a 12-year old kid pushed straight past her, opened the door and let it slam in her face. She grabbed him by the collar, pointed out his error, acknowledged his mumbled “Sorry” and let him go. Less than two minutes later, another child did exactly the same thing going in the other direction. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Nearly reaching her boiling point, Sarah told the head teacher how she had taught her boys that you always stand back for a grown-up, always hold the door open and let them go first, say ‘good morning’, treat them with deference, particularly much older people, offer to help, apologise if you bump into someone, smile and say ‘thank you’ when someone gives you something or pays you a compliment, say ‘may I, please?’ not ‘can I?’. Then, she stormed out of his office, saying: ‘You can only teach what you know, but how can schools expect any level of order when basic courtesies and respect are neither encouraged nor demonstrated?’ II.
