Many people dream of living in a foreign country. It can be an amazing experience for

are willing to settle down in a new place. (24)

, there’s one

potential problem you should be aware of: culture shock. Culture shock is the feeling we get from living in a place that is so different to where we grew up that we are not sure

(25)

to deal with it. Societies are (26) _

in many different ways. Customs

and traditions can be very different and that can sometimes make it difficult to get on with

local people who might not approve of things you do and might object to things you say. You

might be banned from doing things in another country that are perfectly legal in your own.

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 1960s, it took pop and rock groups one or two days to record their songs.

Nowadays, it can take months and months. Many rock groups begin by recording only one

instrument, for example, the voice. Then they record other instruments- electric piano,

synthesizer, guitars, drums and so on.

Next, they might use a computer to add special effects. Finally, they ‘mix’ all the

instruments until they get the sound that they want. This means that a CD or cassette will

always sound very different from a live concert.

Music engineers have developed a new computer programme that will change the future

of music. A computer can analyse a singer’s voice. Then if you give the computer the lyrics

and music of a song, the computer can ‘sing’ it in that voice. This means that a singer only

needs to record one song and the computer can then sing other songs in the singer’s own

voice. Singers can sing new songs many years after they have died.

Most of us listen to music for pleasure, but for the record companies, music is a product,

the same as soap powder. When a record company finds a new group (or ‘band’), they first

try to develop the band’s ‘profile’. They will try to create an ‘image’ for the band that they

think will attract young people. Instead of allowing the band’s full artistic freedom, they will

often tell the band what they should wear, what they should say and how they should sing

and play.

In recent year, many rock groups have started their own record companies because they

say that the big companies are too commercial.

28. Today, to record songs, it takes



.



A. longer than it used to do

B. shorter than it used to do

C. only one or two days

D. the same amount of time as the 1960s

29. Today’s record procedure results in



.



A. different sounds of recorded songs and live- performed songs.

B. the mixture between CDs and live concert

C. some special effects on songs

D. differences invoices and instruments played

30. Which of the following is NOT true about the new computer programme?

A. It is predicted to change the music future.

B. It can imitate singers’ voice.

C. It can sing only one recorded song of the singer.



D. The singer does not necessarily present to really sing.

31. Record companies don’t always



.



A. suggest the outfits of the band

B. tell the band what to say

C. give the band freedom to do things

D. decide the songs the band will play

32. The word “that” in the passage refers to

A. soap powder



B. an image

C. the band



D. a company

Cooking over coals or an open flame makes people feel more sociable.

Most countries have barbecue traditions, and they usually take place on national holidays.

In the United States, it is a tradition to have a barbecue of hamburgers and hot dogs on July

lines today. Practically, anywhere in the English-speaking world, the thought of shish-kebab

THE IMPORTANCE OF ENGLISH IN TODAY’S WORLD

English was originally the language of England, and soon it has become the primary or

secondary language of many former British colonies such as the United States, Canada,

Australia, and India. Nowadays, it is the most international language in the world. There are

several factors that make the English language essential to communication in our current

time.

First of all, it is the most common foreign language. This means that two people who

come from different countries (for example, a Mexican and a Swede) usually use English as a

common language to communicate. English is also essential to the field of education. In

many countries, children are taught and encouraged to learn English as a second language. At

the university level, students in many countries study almost all their subjects in English in

order to make the material more accessible to international students. On the Internet, the

majority of websites are written and created in English. Even sites in other languages often

give you the option to translate the site. It is the primary language of the press: more

newspapers and books are written in English than in any other language, and no matter where

in the world you are, you will find some of these books and newspapers available.

Although many people think that it is very difficult and confusing, English is actually the

easiest language of the world to learn because there are so many resources available. As soon

as you decide you want to learn, there are thousands of resources on the Internet and in

bookstores. With good understanding and communication in English, you can travel around

the globe. Because it is the international language for foreigners, it is easy to get assistance

and help in every part of the world. You can test it by online travel. Any travel booking site

you can find will have English as a booking option.

28. When two people having different mother tongues meet each other, they will use

A. their own mother tongues to communicate

B. English as a means of communication

C. the third language to communicate

D. a second language as a means of communication

29. The study material at universities is often written in English so that

A. all international students can follow it

B. scientists can understand it easily

C. it is the dominant language in England
