II READING COMPREHENSION

Anger has many sources. Often it is an emotion which is secondary to
some other emotion that you are feeling - like fear, guilt or relief. So the
parent who shouts at her kid, who gets home late is using anger as a
way of displacing fear. Sometimes it is the result of a sense of great
unfairness - such as when someone is wrongly accused of a crime, finds
that someone has not been telling them the truth, or feels a passionate
sense of social injustice. But anger may have other causes as well. We
know that animals can be made more aggressive if some parts of their
brains are stimulated; thus overstimulation of those parts which are the
.emotional centre of the brain may be very dangerous
Changes in hormone levels seem to cause anger too, and inheritance
plays a part, as does our upbringing. The more we are raised in anger,
.the more anger we are likely to feel later in our lives
Most researchers think that anger leads to an increased risk of
heart attack, but studies show that keeping anger inside oneself is bad
for you too, Women who constantly control their anger, for example,
show a higher death rate than those that don't. When people suppress
their anger, one study suggests, this is more damaging to the woman's
health than the man's. So it seems that while frequent anger is bad for
you (heart attacks, high blood pressure), the suppression of anger is
worse. Some scientists suggest that using anger consciously is a good
thing, provided it is not too extreme or out of control, but others are
convinced that anger could be one of the main factors controlling our
.emotional and physical health

((10 MARKS IV SUMMARY MAKING
:read the following passage, then answer the questions below (*
Today, millions of people want to learn or improve their English. Is it
?better to study in Britain or America or to study in your own country
The advantages of going to Britain seem obvious. Firstly, you will be
able to listen to the language all the time you are in the country. You will
be surrounded completely by the language wherever you go. Another
advantage is that you have to speak the language if you are with other
.people
On the other hand, there are also advantages to staying at home to
study. You don't have to make big changes to your life. As well as this, it
is also a lot cheaper than going to Britain but it is never possible to
achieve the results of living in the UK. If you have a good teacher, I think

5

you can learn in a more concentrated way than being in Britain without
.going to a school
So, in conclusion, I think that if you have enough time and enough
.money, the best choice is to spend some time in the UK
In four sentences of your own, write about the advantages of (*
studying English in
:the UK
