SECTION 2. READING Reading Test 1 (10 marks) I. Match the headings with the paragraphs below. There is an extra heading, which one is it? (2 marks) a) Eating b) Conversation c) Staying in an Indian home d) Food e) Dinner gifts Đề chính thức Anh 10 ( hệ số 1) ____________________________________________________________ * Page 2 of 4 II. Read the passage and say whether the following statements are true (T) or false (F). Write T or F in front of each letter. (8 marks) ___ 1 If you stay with an Indian family you are expected to give them a gift. ___ 2 Your choice of gift will depend on who your hosts are. ___ 3 It used to be insulting to take a gift when you are invited for dinner. ___ 4 You can give your hostess flowers. ___ 5 You should always eat with your left hand. ___ 6 Indians keep their left hand on the table. ___ 7 Indians prefer interesting discussions to polite conversation. ___ 8 They avoid talking about religion. ___(Heading 1)___ If you stay in an Indian home, bring something from your home country as a gift. Although it is not expected, it would be much appreciated. But find out the social status and religion of your hosts before you choose the gift. A bottle of foreign whisky would be the perfect gift for some, and not at all appropriate for others. If you know the people you are going to stay with, it is a good idea to ask them what they would like. Some things are just not available in India. ___(Heading 2)___ It is not necessary to bring a gift when you are invited to dinner. After all, you are the honoured guest. Until recently, it would have been almost insulting to bring sweets or a bottle of wine. But this is not true today. Nowadays it is a custom which is becoming popular with many Indians. Fruit, flowers or a box of sweets are perfect gifts on such occasions, and will offend no one. ___(Heading 3)___ In all classes of society, both urban and rural, food is only taken to the mouth with the right hand. This is the most important part of the etiquette of eating in India. Once you have started eating, and have food in your right hand, it is all right to serve yourself, using the serving spoon with the left hand. When you watch Indians eat, you will see that they keep their left hand on their lap. ___(Heading 4)___ If you are stuck for a conversation topic in India, talk about families. Another useful subject to start with is cricket. But once you get to know a person better, any topic is acceptable. Indians love to talk about politics and religion. They enjoy opinionated discussions and not just polite conversations. Conversation is an art form and people take the time to really talk. Reading Test 2 (14 marks) Part 1: Read the text and match the inventions (A–F) with paragraphs (1–5). (6 marks) A fridge B light bulb C microwave oven D telephone E television F vacuum cleaner ____1 John S. Thurman was the person who invented this in 1899. He went from door-to-door cleaning people’s carpets with the first model which used gas for power. ____2 William Cullen, a Scotsman was the inventor of this technology which Faraday later used. The first electric model was not invented until 1803. It was not until almost 100 years later that people could buy one to keep their food cool. ____3 Both Joseph Swan and Thomas Edison invented the electric version in 1878. It was an invention with a bright future which we still use today. ____4 Marconi, who some people think invented this, only made the idea popular. The first working model, which takes its name from Greek and means ‘far sound’, was invented by Alexander Graham Bell in March 1876. ____5 This was invented by accident in 1946 when Dr Percy LeBaron Spencer found that a chocolate bar which was in his pocket melted while he was working with microwave radiation. Part 2: In your opinion, which of the inventions is … (8 marks) 1 the most important/ useful? ……………………………………………………………………….. 2 least useful? ……………………………………………………………………………… Đề chính thức Anh 10 ( hệ số 1) ____________________________________________________________ * Page 3 of 4 3 most expensive? ……………………………………………………………………………… 4 going to be replaced by a better invention? ………………………………………………………

SECTION 1: LANGUAGE USAGE & VOCABULARY I. VOCABULARY 1: How many differences between British and American English can you find from reading these two short texts? Underline the American English words that are the equivalent of the British English words. (16 marks) British and American English David (York, England) I live in a flat with my mum, my dad and my two older sisters. My hobbies are playing football and watching films on TV, and my favourite food is burger with chips. There’s a good film on TV at the weekend, Titanic, but I don’t think I’ll watch it because I’ve already seen it. David (New York, United States) I’d say New York is my favorite city in the States, and I have a nice apartment here. However because my job is so busy, the only time I can do stuff like go out to watch a movie, or even just watch a soccer game on TV, is on the weekend. Some days I don’t even have time to eat properly – I just get chicken and fries from the place next door. I’d like to move back to Florida to be closer to mom and my brother. I already visited them twice this year, but it’s not enough. II. VOCABULARY 2: Complete the American English words that are the equivalent of the British English words in the table below.

In fact, very few people choose acting in violent way. To watch hearing ……………………… ………….………… Chuyên Anh 10 Chính Thức * 2009- 2010 * Page 2 of 7___________________________________________________ TV, therefore, is not the cause. Groups like the American Medical Society should stop to try to tell people what to watch. If we want living in a free society, it is necessary having freedom of choice. Children need learn values from their parents. It should be the parents’ responsibility deciding what their child can or cannot watch. The government and other interest groups should avoid to interfere in these personal decisions. Limiting our freedom of choice is not the answer. If parents teach their children respecting life, children can enjoy to watch TV without any negative effects. ………….………… …………..………… ……………………. ……………………. …………..………… ………….………… ………….………… ……………………

SECTION 2: VI. READING A. From field to feast: the journey of the grain For some, rice is simply bought at the market, ready to take home and steam or boil. But have you ever wondered about the journey the grains of rice take before they reach your plate or bowl, or fork or chopsticks? Put the following paragraphs into their correct order. The first one has been done for you. (14 marks) __Distribution and marketing Grains for the local or international markets are placed in bags for shipping via water buffalo, cart, wagon, truck, boat, train, or any other form of transportation imaginable. __Drying the rice Drying is very important because if the moisture content is too high, the freshly harvested grains will spoil easily. In many countries, the grains are laid out to dry wherever space is available, from basketball courts to

SECTIONs of major highways. Affluent farmers may put large quantities of grains into heated air dryers. __Harvesting When the mature plants are a golden yellow colour, the new grains are ready to harvest. Sometimes farmers use a mechanical reaper, but often they use only a sharp knife or sickle. __Preparation Rice grains are commonly boiled or steamed and eaten alone. But, because rice can be part of so many dishes, we will leave the rest of the story to your imagination! __Processing For eating at home, farmers separate the hulls from the grains through pounding. Commonly, this is done by placing the grains in a mortar in which they are pounded with a pestle. The hull debris (or chaff) is separated from the grains by winnowing (or tossing) the pounded mixture into the wind from a shallow basket. Rice grains in commercial mills are polished using a mechanical mill. _1_Sowing the seeds First, the seeds are sown. Sometimes, they are planted directly in the paddies, but often they are sown in nurseries where they spend their first 30 days sprouting into seedlings. __Threshing Threshing separates the grains from the stalks. This can be done with mechanical threshers or combines, but often the stalks are simply pounded against a hard surface. When threshing is done without machinery, the rice is tied into bundles and dried in the sun first. __Transplanting to the fields After about 30 days, the seedlings (young rice plants) are transplanted to the fields. Transplanting is exhausting, tiring work that requires standing in water and repeatedly bending over. B. FILM CRITIC (16 marks) Read the following passage then do the questions. Chuyên Anh 10 Chính Thức * 2009- 2010 * Page 3 of 7___________________________________________________ Mark Adams looks back over the last ten years of his work as a film critic for a newspaper called The Front Page Writing articles about films for The Front Page was my first proper job. Before then I had done bits of reviewing – novels for other newspapers, films for a magazine and anything I was asked to do for the radio. That was how I met Tom Seaton, the first art editor of The Front Page, who had also written for television. He hired me, but Tom was not primarily as a journalist, or he would certainly have been more careful in choosing his staff. At first, his idea was that a team of critics should take care of the art forms that didn’t require specialised knowledge: books, TV, theatre, film and radio. There would be a weekly lunch at which we would make our choices from the artistic material that Tom had decided we should cover, though there would also be guests to make the atmosphere sociable. It all felt like a bit of a dream at that time: a new newspaper, and I was one of the team. It seemed so unlikely that a paper could be introduced into a crowded market. It seemed just as likely that a millionaire wanted to help me personally, and was pretending to employ me. Such was my lack of self-confidence. In fact, the first time I saw someone reading the newspaper on the London underground, then turning to a page on which one of my reviews appeared, I didn’t know where to look. Tom’s original scheme for a team of critics 31 for the arts never took off. It was a good idea, but we didn’t get together as planned and so everything was done by phone. It turned out, too, that the general public out there preferred to associate a reviewer with a single subject area, and so I chose film. Without Tom’s initial push, though, we would hardly have come up with the present arrangement, by which I write an extended weekly piece, usually on one film. The luxury of this way of working suits me40 well. I wouldn’t have been interested in the more standard film critic’s role, which involves considering every film that comes out. That’s a routine that would make me stale in no time at all. I would soon be sinking into my seat on a Monday morning with the sigh, “What insulting rubbish must I sit through now?” – a style of sigh that can often be heard in screening rooms around the world. The space I am given allows me to broaden my argument – or forces me, in an uninteresting week, to make something out of nothing. But what is my role in the public arena? I assume that people choose what films to go to on the basis of the stars, the publicity or the director. There is also such a thing as loyalty to ‘type’ or its opposite. It can only rarely happen that someone who hates westerns buys a ticket for one after reading a review, or a love story addict avoids a romantic film because of what the papers say. So if a film review isn’t really consumer guide, what is it? I certainly don’t feel I have a responsibility to be ‘right’ about a movie. Nor do I think there should be a certain number of ‘great’ and ‘bad’ films each year. All I have to do is put forward an argument. I am not a judge, and nor would I want to be. 1.

SECTION 1: LANGUAGE USAGE & VOCABULARY I. VOCABULARY 1: How many differences between British and American English can you find from reading these two short texts? Underline the American English words that are the equivalent of the British English words. ( 16 marks) British and American English David (York, England) I live in a flat with my mum, my dad and my two older sisters. My hobbies are playing football and watching films on TV, and my favourite food is burger with chips. There’s a good film on TV at the weekend, Titanic, but I don’t think I’ll watch it because I’ve already seen it. David (New York, United States) I’d say New York is my favorite city in the States, and I have a nice apartment here. However because my job is so busy, the only time I can do stuff like go out to watch a movie, or even just watch a soccer game on TV, is on the weekend. Some days I don’t even have time to eat properly – I just get chicken and fries from the place next door. I’d like to move back to Florida to be closer to mom and my brother. I already visited them twice this year, but it’s not enough. Answers: British/American vocabulary differences: flat/apartment, mum/mom, football/soccer, film/movie, chips/fries, at/on the weekend. British/American spelling differences: favourite/favorite. Grammatical difference: the possibility in American English of using the past simple tense with ‘already’ (as well as ‘just’ and ‘yet’) where in British English only the present perfect would be correct.

Groups like the American Medical Society should stop to try to tell people what to watch. If we want living in a free society, it is necessary having freedom of choice. Children need learn values from their parents. It should be the parents’ responsibility deciding what their child can or cannot watch. The government and other interest groups should avoid to interfere in these personal decisions. Limiting our freedom of choice is not the answer. If parents teach their children respecting life, children can enjoy to watch TV without any negative effects. ………….………… …………..………… ……………………. ……………………. …………..………… ………….………… ………….………… …………………… Key: to act; watching; trying; to live; to have; to learn, to decide; interfering, to respect; watching

SECTION 2: VI. READING A. From field to feast: the journey of the grain For some, rice is simply bought at the market, ready to take home and steam or boil. But have you ever wondered about the journey the grains of rice take before they reach your plate or bowl, or fork or chopsticks? Put the following paragraphs into their correct order. The first one has been done for you. (7 x 2 ms = 14 marks) __Distribution and marketing Grains for the local or international markets are placed in bags for shipping via water buffalo, cart, wagon, truck, boat, train, or any other form of transportation imaginable. __Drying the rice Drying is very important because if the moisture content is too high, the freshly harvested grains will spoil easily. In many countries, the grains are laid out to dry wherever space is available, from basketball courts to

SECTIONs of major highways. Affluent farmers may put large quantities of grains into heated air dryers. __Harvesting When the mature plants are a golden yellow colour, the new grains are ready to harvest. Sometimes farmers use a mechanical reaper, but often they use only a sharp knife or sickle. __Preparation Rice grains are commonly boiled or steamed and eaten alone. But, because rice can be part of so many dishes, we will leave the rest of the story to your imagination! __Processing For eating at home, farmers separate the hulls from the grains through pounding. Commonly, this is done by placing the grains in a mortar in which they are pounded with a pestle. The hull debris (or chaff) is separated from the grains by winnowing (or tossing) the pounded mixture into the wind from a shallow basket. Rice grains in commercial mills are polished using a mechanical mill. 1_ Sowing the seeds First, the seeds are sown. Sometimes, they are planted directly in the paddies, but often they are sown in nurseries where they spend their first 30 days sprouting into seedlings. __Threshing Threshing separates the grains from the stalks. This can be done with mechanical threshers or combines, but often the stalks are simply pounded against a hard surface. When threshing is done without machinery, the rice is tied into bundles and dried in the sun first. __Transplanting to the fields After about 30 days, the seedlings (young rice plants) are transplanted to the fields. Transplanting is exhausting, tiring work that requires standing in water and repeatedly bending over.

FILM CRITIC (16 marks) Mark Adams looks back over the last ten years of his work as a film critic for a newspaper called The Front Page Writing articles about films for The Front Page was my first proper job. Before then I had done bits of reviewing – novels for other newspapers, films for a magazine and anything I was asked to do for the radio. That was how I met Tom Seaton, the first art editor of The Front Page, who had also written for television. He hired me, but Tom was not primarily as a journalist, or he would certainly have been more careful in choosing his staff. At first, his idea was that a team of critics should take care of the art forms that didn’t require specialised knowledge: books, TV, theatre, film and radio. There would be a weekly lunch at which we would make our choices from the artistic material that Tom had decided we should cover, though there would also be guests to make the atmosphere sociable. It all felt like a bit of a dream at that time: a new newspaper, and I was one of the team. It seemed so unlikely that a paper could be introduced into a crowded market.
