A Letter

Dear Irina,

Thank you for your letter. I would like to know a bit more about your school activities. Do you have parties at school? What are they like? Our parties are not always interesting. Some are amusing and some are boring. The best we had was on the Valentine’s Day. We all loved it very much. It was a costume party. I had a butterfly suit on with big black-and-red wings.

We have pinned up funny posters on the walls in the rest room. The most interesting part of it was the mail. I got five Valentine’s Day, cards. I think the big card was from Joe. I went all red when I opened it. There was a big satin elephant holding a bunch of plastic flowers in its trunk and these words: “Sharon, I love you.” I also wrote ten cards to boys and girls just for fun, and of course one to Joe. You can guess what I wrote in it. We also sang and danced at the party. How do your parties go?

The Boy and the Door

There was a small shop in a little street in an old town. In the shop there were beautiful things made of silver and gold. The small shop had a door that opened on the little street. The shopkeeper was standing at the open door.

“Come and buy! Come and buy!” called the shopkeeper. “Come into my shop and see all the beautiful things!” again he called. “Come in!

I shall show you beautiful things made of silver and gold.”

One day the shopkeeper had to go away to the king’s palace. The king wanted a beautiful gold ring and a silver cup from the shop. The shopkeeper called the boy who worked for him. “I’m going to the king’s palace,” he said. “You must stay here. Do not leave the door of the shop whatever happens. Do you understand?”

“Yes, I understand,” said the boy.

The shopkeeper went away, and soon he came to the king’s palace. He gave the king the ring and the cup. Then he went home. Soon he was back at his shop. He stopped and looked up in astonishment. “What is this?” he cried. “Why are so many people going into my shop?” Then the shopkeeper saw that the door of the shop was gone and so was the boy who worked for him.

Just then, the shopkeeper saw the boy. He was in the street near the shop. The boy had the shop door on his back. He was standing in the square looking at some men who were doing tricks.

Reading Comprehension

Part 1You are going to read a magazine article about the planets of the solar system. Choose the most suitable heading from the list A-H for each part (1-7) of the article. There is one extra heading which you do not need to use.

A Too hot for life.В A place of contrasts.С Red for danger.D Gases in turmoil.E A treat for the amateur.F A distant wanderer.G An unseen influence.H Fact and fiction.

A family of worlds

1. The solar system is a family of worlds. Nearest to the sun is Mercury, a place where the day is hot enough to melt some metals and the night sufficiently cold to make a rubber ball as brittle as glass. The planet has no atmosphere to scatter light so the sun glares down from a pitch black sky.

2. Venus, on the contrary, has an atmosphere so thick that no one on its surface could ever see the sun. Though the sun is concealed, its energy reaches the planet’s surface, turning it into a baking desert where nothing can live.

3. Beyond the earth and its moon we come to the planet Mars. Its famous redness is due to oxidization — a sort of rusting process that has taken place over millions of to years. According to a now discredited theory, intelligent creatures on Mars have dug canals to harness the small amounts of water released when the planet’s polar ice¬caps melt in the Martian spring.

4. Jupiter is a giant ice-ball surrounded by an atmosphere of poisonous gases. It is an atmosphere full of storms and turmoil. The biggest storm of all — visible in the form 15 of the Great Red Spot — has lasted for over 200 years and shows no sign of dying away.

5. Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are giant stepping stones leading us into the unseen coldness of outer space. Saturn is the most distinctive planet of the three, since it has the famous rings which almost everyone has heard about. They form a halo 20 round its equator and no one knows quite how they were formed. A spectacular sight when observed through a powerful telescope, they can also be seen and enjoyed with a simple pair of binoculars.

6. Beyond Neptune orbits little Pluto. Too small and too far from the sun to receive much light, it reflects so little that it tells us very little indeed about itself. Its orbit 25 sometimes brings it nearer to the sun than Neptune; at other times it swings out into the blackness of space as if it never means to return.

7. Could there be another planet even further away than Pluto? There are clues that the answer to this may be yes. A mysterious gravitational pull is disturbing the orbits of Neptune and Pluto, suggesting that an unseen world awaits discovery.

Part 2You are going to read an extract from an autobiography. For questions 8-15, choose the answer (А, В, С or D) which you think fits best according to the text.

The warden led us in single file along a narrow line of paving slabs that ran past the huts. Every so often, four steps led to a front door. We could hear people inside, shouting at children.‘The overcrowding has to be believed,’ he said as he shook his head forlornly.We squeezed to one side as a sullen woman passed us, carrying a bucket of coal. She had the look of someone who was old before her time.The warden went up the last set of steps, opened the door with a jangling bunch of keys, took one off the ring and handed it to me.‘There you are. Home Sweet Home. There’s a bath in that hut by the trees; get the Ю key from me when you want one,’ he said, and he came down the steps, leaving us room to go up. ‘I hope you can make a go of it,’ he said. ‘At least we’ve got you a bit of furniture.’We walked into a square ‘cell’ with a table and two chairs and a two-seater settee. No two of anything were the same; it all looked like furniture from a charity shop, which is I suppose it was. There was a double hotplate on top of a low cupboard, and a dead black stove against the back wall with a scuttle beside it containing a few lumps of fuel. The adjoining ‘cell’ had a double bed with a pink plastic mattress cover, glistening like wet salmon. There was a cupboard that hung open because the door catch had gone. Inside the cupboard were two meagre blankets.The bedroom was freezing. I struggled to shut the top flap of the window, but it was jammed open by rust. There were bits of yellowing sellotape all round the wall near it, where previous inmates had tried to block the draught with cardboard.I sat on the bed with my head in my hands, wondering how long we would have to spend here before we found a real home, and noticing, as I glanced sideways into 25 the front room, that a thin film of dust was blowing under the front door.We took the plastic cover off the mattress because it looked worse than the stains underneath. The blankets smelled, but we had to keep warm somehow.We had been in this place exactly a week when, on returning in the evening, we went up to our front door and heard children’s voices and a transistor radio. We peered 30 round the door at a jumble of people and things and colours. The people turned round and we all looked at each other. The muddle resolved itself into a huge woman and a little man, and two small children. They had a lot of stuff, mostly carrier bags and laundry bags with clothes spilling out, and a couple of buckets full of kitchen equipment which we’d have been glad to have ourselves.They didn’t want to share with us any more than we did with them, but that’s what the warden had told them to do. We argued about it, though it seemed ridiculous to quarrel over accommodation which none of us really wanted anyway.

8.    The place isA  a prison.В  a hostel for the homeless.С  a holiday camp.D  old people’s bungalows.

9.    The warden seems to think that the couple’s accommodation isA  cosy.В  unpleasant.С  spacious enough.D  well furnished.

10.    The main reason the author feels cold in the bedroom is thatA  there isn’t enough fuel for the stove.В  the window lets in a lot of draught.С  there aren’t enough blankets.D  the door lets in a lot of draught.

11.    The main thing the author notices about the furniture is thatA  it looks or smells dirty.В  most of it is in poor condition.С  it is very cheap.D  nothing matches anything else.

12.    The author feelsA  unhappy.В  optimistic.С  determined to make the best of the situation.D  angry.

13.    Taking the plastic cover off the mattressA  releases the smell of the blankets.В  improves the appearance of the bed.С  helps the couple to keep warm.D  makes the bed look worse.

14.    The couple’s first feeling when they return home to find other people there isA  confusion and bewilderment.В  anger.С  fear.D  envy of all their kitchen equipment.

15.    The four other people are in the accommodationA  by mistake.В  because they have been told to share their kitchen equipment.С  because they have been told to share the accommodation.D  because a week is up and it is their turn to live there.
