2.Read the text below and do the tasks that follow.

The Internet affects the way we shop, how we communicate with each other, how we find answers
to questions and much more. But for the time being, there have been concerns that the older generation are
being left behind because they are unable to use a computer.
However, this is changing and several charities and community groups now help older people to get
online. Paul Robinson runs one such charity. Paul worked for an IT company before deciding to leave his
well-paid job and start the charity. As he explains, ‘I used to spend a few hours a week helping some older
people use the Internet at a local library and I could see the difference it made to their lives. It can be quite
lonely for the elderly when their children move away to find work and start a family of their own. Learning
how to use e-mail and receive photographs of their children and grandchildren was a wonderful experience
for them. And when I saw what a big effect it had on their life I left my job and set up Seniors Online. We
run training courses so that older people can enjoy the same opportunities as the rest of us.’
One of Paul’s students is 89-year-old Betty, who had never used a computer in her life before she
joined one of the classes. That was six months ago and Betty has now completed the course and received
her ‘graduation certificate’. ’I joined a class so I could learn how to use e-mail to keep in touch with
members of my family,’ she says. ‘That’s been fantastic but the best thing of all has been learning how to
research my family history online. Using a computer was a bit scary to begin with because you think you’ll
do something terrible if you press the wrong key. But you soon learn that you can’t really break anything –
and the teachers are very patient. I think all people my age should do a course like this.

2. Read the text below and do the tasks that follow.

Diane Modahl’s six older sisters all live within a ten-minute drive of their parents’ house in a suburb
of Manchester. It is the place where Modahl lived from the age of 11 until the age of 24, when she married
and moved to Sale – twenty minutes away by car. Every Sunday she and her husband, like the rest of her
siblings, return to Manchester for a huge Jamaican lunch of marinated chicken, rice with peas and fried
potatoes. It is a family tradition and they all relish it.
In Diane’s mind, Manchester stands for happiness. Up until the age of 11 she had lived in Moss Side
and Longside. She remembers little about these places except the sports days her father used to organize for
the children in the neighbourhood. Her father, who worked in the pastry department of a factory, was, she
says, ‘like the Pied Piper’, knocking on everybody’s door and encouraging them to take part. ‘The first
prize for the races would be a chocolate bar, which really inspired me then.’
Her mother, a nurse, ‘is a very ambitious and positive lady’, and Modahl thinks it was mostly due to
her desire to make ‘a step up’ that the family moved from their three-bedroom council house in Longside to
a very large five-bedroomed Victorian house in Manchester, an area which ‘tended to be white middle-
class’.
Modahl made friends with two girls living opposite. ‘I do remember always being different from
them but if they were racists, it was inadvertent. They’d ask rather silly questions, like did I burn in the sun,
and what kind of makeup could I use? Colour and race never came up in Longside, but there were more
black people there. I was bemused by people’s reaction to me in Manchester but there was never any
blatant name - calling and I never felt uncomfortable. Although my brothers and sisters always accused me
of being naïve, I think it was just ignorance and curiosity.
Whereas before her marriage Modahl would never have contemplated leaving her home town, since
meeting her husband she now feels ‘the sky’s the limit’. She says she’s more mature. ‘I wouldn’t hesitate to
move to Norway, where he comes from. We are thinking of it and it’s an exciting thought. He and I rely on
each other totally. We both want each other to achieve our ambitions. Now we have our first child we have
to set a standard and tone for our family. I think my parents would be disappointed if they felt one of us was
being held back and tied to them.’

For each question choose the correct letter A, B, C or D (5 x 4p= 20p)
