11. While the population of Europe and America is growing older , those in

(DEVELOP) countries are becoming younger. In the non-Western world,

(PARTICULAR) India, China and Brazil there is a new generation of teenagers

(GROW) up. These young peoples tastes are influencing (CONSUME) habits in

our world today.


13. In terms of language , English is dominant throughout the world. It is a way with which
teenagers across the world can communicate with each other and share a common
culture. The (EXIST) of graffiti written in English in so many countries is one

example of this.

15. The (STRONG) force in international youth culture today is pop music. It has

a (UNIVERSE) appeal and is driven by pop music stations like MTV and others.

They broadcast pop music to every corner of our planet, and while most of the music is
English, kids from all over the world learn to sing English too.
16. Youngsters these days can communicate online with friends in (DISTANCE)

places . In fact, a teenager in India may feel they have more in common with an Internet

used to on the street.

the Netherlands but he is right in the centre of a major trend. He feels he is

(EXACT) in tune with all of his (SEEN) friends.


22. Many companies say they are trying to create a youth agenda to unite teenagers around
the world. Such an agenda includes an (AWARE) of the global environment
and human rights. Benetton, for example, says teenagers do not always conform to the
same style. Thus, those who wear the united colours of Benetton are encouraged to
celebrate together their individual and (CULTURE) difference.

23. I am quite sure I wouldn't like to have an (OCCUPY) that has anything to do

with physics, (CHEMIST) or maths. I am not the (SCIENCE) type at

all. In school I was a complete (FAIL) in the mentioned subjects. I am not very

good at (DEAL) with people either, nor am I very (AMBITION). Jobs in

business, (ADMINISTRATE) and (MANAGE) do not really

interest me. In (ADD), I find it rather (IRRITATE) to be surrounded by

many people.

25. I would rather see myself in a job involving (CREATE) work or (ART)

skills of some sort. I'd like to have the opportunity to work outdoors

a (REASON) income - enough to live (COMFORT).

We live in a new (RESIDENT) area in the suburbs of London. It is a quiet

(NEIGHBOUR) , which is a great change after living in one of the (NOISE) parts of
London for years. The house is set in beautiful (SURROUND) , but there is one

major (ENVIRONMENT) problem: a chemical factory a few miles away in

the (INDUSTRY) zone. (FORTUNATE), the waste from the factory has

been causing serious (POLLUTE) of the atmosphere and the Thames River.

Another (ADVANTAGE) is the night life , which doesn't exist. If you want

any (ENTERTAIN) you have to drive into (CENTRE) London, where you

have the (DIFFICULT) of finding a (SUIT) parking space. (LUCK) , it

is only a five-minute walk to the nearest (GROUND) station, which then takes me

directly to Oxford Circus.

Hawaii is one of the most (FASCINATE) places in the world to get a clear view of the

night sky. This is because of the island's (GEOGRAPHY) setting. Because it is

a (MOUNTAIN) area in the middle of the ocean, Hawaii is much less affected by

light (POLLUTE) than other parts of the world.

(FORTUNE), tourists are allowed to go to the top of the volcano,known as Mauna Kea,

where the view is even more (IMPRESS). The volcano rises to a (HIGH) of

over 4000 metres and gives visitors an (INTERRUPT) view of the night sky. It is also

the (LOCATE) for the world's most (POWER) telescopes.

The telescopes at WM Keck Observatory have been credited with the (DISCOVER) of

about 40 new planets beyond our solar system . By proving the (EXIST) of these

planets, (ASTRONOMY) have increased the (PROBABLE) that some day

doesn't (REAL) have a (POWER) enough memory for the project I'm working on

must admit I do not get much (PLEASE) out of sitting in front of a computer screen for

hours, but I don't stand much chance of (PROMOTE) without computer skills. So I

made an (APPOINT) to see my bargain computer the next day.

Pythagoras was a (PHILOSOPHY) born on the Aegean island of Samos. He was

known as a great (MATHEMATICS) who has received (ADMIRE) for over

2000 years. As a young man he travelled a lot and was (GREAT) influenced by

some (REMARK) ideas he came across in Egypt and Babylon.

Over time, he made (EXTEND) mathematical (INVESTIGATE) , which

included "Pythagoras' Theorem" , a great (DISCOVER) stating that the square of the

hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares. In (ADD),

Pythagoras was one of the earliest (SCIENCE) to suggest that the earth was a

sphere (REVOLVE) around a central fire. Without doubt, his

(CONTRIBUTE) to the scientific world will always be acknowledged.

Many people , maybe even the (MAJOR) are not particularly happy in their job. They go

to work and get paid. (EMPLOY) for them is just a way of paying the bills. This leads

to (LAZY) at work and unhappy workers often don't show enough (POLITE)

to customers or (KIND) to their fellow workers. Many workers feel that they have no

chance of (PROMOTE) and they are unhappy with the (WORK) conditions.
If you want to get (ENJOY) from your work, make sure that involves doing an

(ACTIVE) that you like. Ask yourself whether the job will have the same

(ATTRACT) after five years. A (CARE) now can save you a lot of (HAPPY) in

the future.

Three or four cups of coffee a day may not sound (EXCESS) , yet some of the minor symptoms many of us

experience (like headaches , indigestion or high blood (PRESS) ) may be related to caffeine (TAKE). A cup of

real coffee contains about 100 mg of caffeine . It stimulates the (NERVE) system , heart and kidneys . Heavy
coffee (CONSUME) is likely to produce a general (FEEL) of anxiety.

The effects that caffeine has on the human body depends to some extent on personality and (PSYCHOLOGY)

factors. People, for example , who take tranquillizers are often (SENSE) to caffeine. Drinking more coffee only makes

their symptoms worse.

The long-term dangers of caffeine - such as cancer and heart disease - have been the subject of much debate , but a recent study
has found no significant association between coffee consumption and any major cause of (DEAD).

However, it might be worthwhile , trying to find out if caffeine is responsible for minor (ILL) by gradually

(REDUCE) the coffee intake. Switching to tea does not help much because tea also contains caffeine. The same applies to cocoa
and cola drinks. (CAFFEIN) coffee is not the answer either because it tends to have a greater effect on your

stomach, causing (DIGEST) and diarrhoea.

(HERB) teas, which contain low levels of caffeine, fruit juices and plenty of water are the best substitutes. Also watch out

for caffeine in painkillers and in cold remedies; you could end up ingesting several hundred milligrams of caffeine a day without
even (REALISE) it.

George Lukas' Star Wars transformed 20th century


and raised audience to alarming heights for film


producers. Since Star Wars was made in 1977 special effects

have become important in selling a film

The script of Jurassic Park, for example, was rather


but the film was a box office success because the dinosaurs were
realistic. However, special effects do not always

guarantee success. , when Lost World came out,


the technology was far superior, but people had become tired
of dinosaurs and were not motivated enough to want to

go and see them any more. The film was not as


as its predecessor.
But who is not when they see Jar Binks in The

Phantom Menace, the first ever 3D interactive character


seen on film? Computer-generated are certainly the


way ahead, but you may be surprised to discover that the

most expensive special effect was filmed in 1956. The

cost an 2 million.

But what does the future hold? It is to think that

One thing that people get from their (OCCUPY) is, of course, money. Most people wouldnt do the job they do if it

wasnt for the pay at the end of each day, week or month. However, the (MAJOR) of people want more than just a good

salary. There are many other things which add up to job (SATISFY) , the feeling of (ENJOY) you get

from doing a job that makes you happy. What people in (EMPLOY) want from a job varies (GREAT) from

person to person.

For some, the chances of (PROMOTE) make a big difference. For others, working in a (CREATE)

environment with other people makes them happier than they would be working alone. When planning your career, you should
consider all the (ACTIVE) involved in a job and decide how each one suits your (PERSON) . If youre

considering becoming a (JOURNAL) , for example, do you like meeting members of the public? If you're thinking of

becoming an (ACCOUNT) do you enjoy detailed work with numbers? Just because one job is better paid than

another, it doesnt mean it's the job for you.
