For many years, no one could communicate with people who had been born without hearing. These deaf
people were not able to use a spoken language. But, beginning in the 1700s, the deaf were taught a special
language. Using this language, they could share thoughts and ideas with others. The language they used was a
language without sound. It was a sign language. How did this sign language work? The deaf were taught to make
certain movements using their hands, faces, and bodies. These movements stood for things and ideas. People might
move their forefingers across their lips. This meant, You are not telling the truth. They might tap their chins with
three fingers. This meant my uncle. The deaf were also taught to use a finger alphabet. They used their fingers to
make the letters of the alphabet. In this way, they spelled out words. Some deaf people could spell out words at a
speed of 130 words per minute. Sign language and finger spelling are not used as much as they once were. Today,
the deaf are taught to understand others by watching their lips. They are also taught how to speak.

We all want the best for our children: the best clothes and toys, the best schools, the best friends, the best
life possible. As parents, we watch our kids' homework and the games they play, and we are careful to watch for
alcohol, drugs, or violence in their lives. When we hear a car crash we make sure that our kids are not hurt. But we

VI. Read the following passage carefully and choose from the four given options (marked A, B, C or D) one
best solution finish each of the questions that follow.
Toast is less flattening than bread. Toast has all the same calories as bread. Many diet plans call for a slice
of dry toast with a meal. This slice of toast has the same 60 to 70 calories that a slice of bread has. Toasting
removes only moisture. So if you are watching calories, eat your bread plain or toasted as you like it. Just don't add
butter and jam. COFFEE or a cold shower can sober up a drunk. In fact these and other activities don't. A cold
shower is useless. A full meal does no good. Food can slow down the speed that alcohol goes into the blood, but
only if you eat and drink at the same time. Coffee can make a tipsy person seem more alert because of the caffeine,
but the strongest coffee will not return his reflexes or sense of judgment. Two cups of coffee don't change a drinker
into a safe driver. Drunkenness is caused by a lot of alcohol in the blood. You can do a little or nothing to make a

person less drunk. So if you have a drunk that you want to sober up, drive him home and tell him to sleep for eight
hours.

In 776 B.C. the first Olympic Games were held at the foot of Mount Olympus to honor the Greeks' chief
god, Zeus. The Greeks emphasized physical fitness and strength in their education of youth. Therefore, contests in
running, jumping, discus and javelin throwing, boxing, and horse and chariot racing were held in individual cities,
and the winners competed every four years at Mount Olympus. The Greeks greatly honored their winners by
placing olive wreaths placed on the winners' heads and sang poems about their victories. Originally, Greeks
considered the Olympic Games as games of friendship. Any wars which were happening were stopped to allow the

IS WINNING EVERYTHING? Ask kids and the answer is probably "No". Ask the adults and the answer
is probably "Yes". And it is adults who control sports for young people - with terrible results for many kids. Twenty
millions of children between the ages of eight and sixteen play organized sports outside of school. Their
experiences are sometimes very bad. Why? Because of the adults, often their parents, who watch the games.
Children's sports are organized like professional sports Children play baseball and football. They wear all the
equipment that professional athletes wear. They have uniforms and umpires and referees and leagues. They have
games. And many people come to watch their games, especially the families of the players. Because the children's
games are like adults, professional games, their parents want adult professional competition. When a child drops a
ball, his father becomes angry. When a child doesn't run fast, his mother might shout, "Run faster! Run faster!"
And the child? With an angry father and a shouting mother, this is not a happy time. Unhappy and nervous, the
child wants to stop playing. The game is not fun now. But he or she can't stop, because the competition is not
finished.

Along with jogging and swimming, cycling is one of the best all-round forms of exercise. It can help to
increase your strength and energy, giving you more efficient muscles and stronger heart. But increasing your
strength is not the only advantage of cycling. Because youre not carrying the weight of your body on your feet,
its a good form of exercise for people with painful feet or backs. However, with all forms of exercise its
important to start slowly and build up gently. Doing too much too quickly can damage muscles that arent used to
working. If you have any doubts about taking up cycling for health reasons, talk to your doctor and ask his/her
advice.
Ideally you should be cycling at least two or three times a week. For the exercise to be doing you good,
you should get a little out of breath. Dont worry that if you begin to lose your breath, it could be dangerous and
there must be something wrong with your heart. This is simply not true; shortness of breath shows that the exercise
is having the right effect. However, if you find you are in pain then you should stop and take a rest, at least two or
three times a week.
46. According to the writer, it is best to go cycling___.
A. once a week
B. at least two or three times a month
C. at least two or three times a week
D. every day
47. You should not worry about the shortness of breath because___.

B. it is a sign of exercise having the right effect
C. it shows that you should stop and take a rest
D. it is a sign of your getting rid of your heart problem

C. it enables them to carry the weight of their body on their feet

Can you imagine a world without words? The main way that we communicate with each other is by using
words. We can communicate either by speaking and listening or by writing and reading. With words, we can give
and receive information, ideas, orders and instructions.
People have used writing to communicate for about 7000 years. At first, they used to draw simple pictures
to represent objects, such as people and animals. Then people started to put pictures together to represent
something more difficult, like a sentence. The next step in the development of writing was to use symbols, or signs.
These symbols represented the sounds of words and not their meanings.
Finally, the alphabet from which modern English comes was invented in about 1500 BC. The people who

I. Read the following passage adapted from Pre-Essence Reading 1 by Rachel Lee, and mark the letter A, B, C,
or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions.
BODY LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCES
The body language people use often communicates more about their feelings than the words they are
saying. We use body movements, hand gestures, facial expressions, and changes in our voice to communicate with
each other. Although some body language is universal, many gestures are culturally specific and may mean
different things in different countries. If you want to give someone the nod in Bulgaria, you have to nod your head
to say no and shake it to say yes - the exact opposite of what we do! In Belgium, pointing with your index finger or
snapping your fingers at someone is very rude.
In France, you shouldnt rest your feet on tables or chairs. Speaking to someone with your hands in your
pockets will only make matters worse. In the Middle East, you should never show the soles of your feet or shoes to
others as it will be seen as a grave insult. When eating, only use your right hand because they use their left hands
when going to the bathroom.
In Bangladesh, the thumbs-up is a rude sign. In Myanmar, people greet each other by clapping, and in
India, whistling in public is considered rude. In Japan, you should not blow your nose in public, but you can burp
at the end of a meal to show that you have enjoyed it. The OK sign (thumb and index finger forming a circle)
means everything is good in the West, but in China it means nothing or zero. In Japan, it means money, and in the
Middle East, it is a rude gesture.
01. It is mentioned in the passage that many gestures ______.
A. can be used to greet each other in public
B. may mean different things in different countries

Is your life full of stress? Maybe it is your astrological sign. A study in Australia last year said signs with
the most stress are Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18), Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Virgo (Aug 23 to Sept 22) and Cancer
(June 21 to July 22). The people who have peaceful lives are under the signs of Pisces (Feb 21 to March 20) ,
Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 22, and Taurus (April 21 to May 20). Kathleen Johnson, a Vermont astrologer, decided to
continue the work. She now has a stress chart that decides which marriages and friendships will be most
harmonious and which will be most stressed. Johnson says that any sign together with Pisces or Scorpio will
probably have an easy and peaceful time. But signs that are put together with Aquarius would always be stressed.
And marriage of Aquarius to Aquarius has no possibility of success. Says Johnson, "We should all work together. If
I know something as an astrologer that would help you as a doctor or psychotherapist, why not?".

V. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the following questions:
It is very important to have healthy teeth. Good teeth help us to chew our food. They also help us to look
nice. How does a tooth go bad? The decay begins in a little crack in the enamel ( men rng) covering of the tooth.
This happens after germs and bits of food have collected there then the decay slowly spreads inside the tooth.
Eventually, poison goes into the blood, and we may feel quite ill. How can we keep our teeth healthy? Firstly, we
ought to visit our dentist twice a year. He can fill the small holes in our teeth before they destroy the teeth. He can
examine our teeth to check that they are growing in the right way. Unfortunately, many people wait until they have
toothache before they see a dentist. Secondly, we should brush our teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste
at least twice a day-once after breakfast and once before we go to bed. We can also use wooden toothpicks to clean
between our teeth after a meal. Thirdly, we should eat food that is good for our teeth and our body: milk, cheese,
fish, brown bread, potatoes, red rice, raw vegetables and fresh fruit. Chocolate, sweets, biscuits and cakes are bad,
especially when we eat them between meals. They are harmful because they stick to our teeth and cause decay.

Ever since humans have inhabited the earth, they have made use of various forms of communication.
Generally, this expression of thoughts and feelings has been in the form of oral speech. When there is a language
barrier, communication is accomplished through sign language in which motions stand for letters, words, and
ideas. Tourists, the deaf and the mute have had to resort to this form of expression. Many of these symbols of the
whole words are very picturesque and exact and can be used internationally; spelling, however, cannot. Body
language transmits ideas or thoughts by certain actions, either intentionally or unintentionally. A wink can be a way
of flirting or indicating that the party is only joking. A nod signifies (biu th) approval, while shaking the head
indicates a negative reaction. Other forms of nonlinguistic language can be found in Braille (a system of raised
dots read with the fingertips), signal flags. Morse code (m Mooc-x), and smoke signals. Road maps and picture
signs also guide, warn, and instruct people. While verbalization is the most common form of language, other
systems and techniques also express human thoughts and feelings.

I. Read the following passage carefully and choose from the four given options (marked A, B, C or D) one best
solution finish each of the questions that follow.
The coffee plant is actually a large shrub (bi), or bush, not really a tree. It can grow very tall (from three
to nine meters) if it is left alone in the wild. It has dark green leaves on the outside and lighter green leaves
underneath. Small white blossoms appear on the leaves, making the coffee plant look like its covered with snow.
After a few days, the fragrant blossoms (hoa thm) fall off the plant, and small berries begin to grow. The berries
change from green to dark red in about six months. Underneath the berry skin there is a green bean. When the
berries are ripe, they are picked, and the bean inside is removed. This is the bean that produces coffee. Coffee
beans are picked by hand, one by one. Then they are dried and prepared for market. Coffee beans are shipped all
over the world. When they reach their destination, different coffee beans are blended together to produce different
kinds of coffee. Then the beans are roasted, ground and packaged in air-tight cans and bags to keep the coffee
fresh. Different countries prefer different blends (pha trn). In Turkey and Arabia, dark coffee is preferred. In the
United States and Canada, the coffee is not so dark. Coffee is also prepared and served differently all over the

For many people the language of the Internet is English. World, Wide, Web: Three English Words was the
name of an article by Michael Specter in the New York Times a few years ago. The article went on to say: If you want
to take full advantage of the Internet, there is only one real way to do it: learn English.
In general, it is not difficult to learn to use Internet services. But although Internet services are rather easy
to use, you will have considerable difficulties if you are not familiar with English. In fact, knowledge of English is
one of the most important aspects that help you use the Internet. Learning to use a new Internet service may take a
few hours, a few days, or some weeks, but it takes years to learn a language so that you can use it fluently and
confidently. Of course, when you know some English, you can learn more just by using it on the Internet. But at
least your English should be good enough to understand commonly used words and to know what to do on the
Internet.
46. If you do not know English very well, you will ________ when using the Internet.
A. have to learn a language fluently
B. have to learn how to use Internet services for a few weeks
C. have many difficulties
D. be laughed at

Have you ever shouted inside a large empty building? If so, you may have heard your voice come back to
you. The sound of your voice hits the walls and bounces back. What you hear is the echo of your voice. You hear
echo after you have shouted. This is because it takes time for the sound to travel to the walls and back to your ear
again. Sound travels very fast, even faster than a speeding aero plane. In a thunderstorm, you see lightning first.
Then a few seconds later, you hear the thunder. You can tell how near or how far the storm is by the length of time
it takes for you to hear the thunder. If you hear it very soon after you see the lightning, the storm is very close.
Many animals use their eyes to find their way. However, some animals such as bats cannot see very well. Their
ears are much better than their eyes, so they use their hearing to find their way. Since insect-eating bats are almost
blind, they send out high sounds as they fly. These sounds bounce off anything in the bat's way. The bat's ears then
pick up the echo. The echo tells the bat the safest direction to fly in. The echoes also bounce off insects in the air,
so the bat knows where to find its food.

VI. Read the following passage carefully and choose from the four given options (marked A, B, C or D) one
best solution finish each of the questions that follow.
At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the American educational system was desperately in need of
reform. Private schools existed, but only for the very rich. There were very few public schools because of the
strong sentiment that children who would grow up to be laborers should not waste their time on education but
should instead prepare themselves for their lifes work. It was in the face of this public sentiment that educational
reformers set about their task. Horace Mann, probably the most famous of the reformers, felt that there was no
excuse in a republic for any citizen to be uneducated. As Superintendent of Education in the state of Massachusetts
from 1837 to 1848, he initiated various changes, which were soon matched in other school districts around the
country. He extended the school year from five to six months and improved the quality of teachers by instituting
teacher education and raising teacher salaries. Although these changes did not bring about a sudden improvement
in the educational system, they at least increased public awareness as to the need for a further strengthening of the
system.

D. people who really enjoy teaching

A. American Education in the Beginning of the 19th Century C. A Flight for Change

About half of all insects live on plants. The rest catch and kill other insects for food. They are the hunters
of the insect world. Each kind of hunter insect has a weapon. The dragonfly uses its legs as a basket to scoop up
other insects. The sand wasp has a stinger it uses to stun its victims. Some hunter insects set traps. The tiger beetle
digs a small hole and gets in. Only its head is at the top of the hole. The tiger beetle can pop its head out like a
jack-in-the-box. It catches its victims by surprise. The ant lion digs a hole in sand and waits at the bottom. When an
ant or other insect gets near the hole, the sand gives way. The victim slides down into the jaws of the waiting ant
lion. The praying mantis is a large insect that looks as if it has arms. Its arms are really legs, but they are not used

VII. Read the following passage carefully and choose from the four given options (marked A, B, C or D) one
best solution finish each of the questions that follow.
If you don't very often eat out in a restaurant, you may need some advice - as the latest issue of the Good
Food Guide points out. Several rules for people eating out are given, some of which seem perhaps of favor
restaurant staff more than they are likely to help diners. For example the Guide tells its readers to be sure to phone
up and cancel any booking they make which they can't keep. The restaurant may otherwise be holding a table and
turning away customers at its busiest time. Apparently this is a legal requirement, though how anyone could trace a
Mr. Smith or a Ms Jones who didn't turn up with a party of six is anyone's guess. The Guide also advises you to
ring up if you're going to be delayed by more than a quarter of an hour. If you don't, you table may be given to
someone else and it's only polite, according to the Guide.
46. This might be from ____.
A. a TV programme
B. a radio programme C. a newspaper
D. a brochure
47. What's Good Food Guide?
A. a book
B. a manual
C. a poster
D. a newspaper
48. You can find in the Good Food Guide some rules for ____.
A. eating in a restaurant.
C. telephoning a restaurant.
B. booking a table in a restaurant.
D. refusing a table booking.
49. If you can't keep a booking, you ____.
A. needn't call to cancel.
C. go to the restaurant to apologize.
B. should call to cancel.
D. phone the manager to cancel.
50. If you are late for the booking ____.
A. the table will be given to other people
C. you will not get your table at all.
