UNIT 1- HOME LIFE
PRACTICE TEST 1

Read the passage carefully and then choose the item A, B, C or D that best answers the
question about the passage:
The nuclear family, consisting of a mother, father and their children, may be more an
American ideal than an American reality. Of course, the so-called traditional American family was
always more varied than we has been led to believe, reflecting the very different racial, ethnic,
class and religious customs among different American groups.
The most recent government statistics reveal that only about one third of all current
American
Families fit the traditional mold and another third consists of married couples who either have no
children or have none still living at home. Of the final one third, about 20 percent of the total
number of American households are single people, usually women over sixty – five years of age.
A small percentage, about 3 percent of the total, consist of unmarried people who choose to live
together; and the rest, about 7 percent are single, usually divorced parents, with at least one child.
Today, these varied family types are typical, and therefore, normal. Apparently, many Americans
are achieving supportive relationship in family forms other than the traditional one.

I. Read the following passage and choose A, B , C or D to indicate the correct answer for
each of the questions
Communication in general is process of sending and receiving messages that enables
humans to share knowledge, attitudes, and skills. Although we usually identify communication
with speech, communication is composed of two dimensions - verbal and nonverbal.
Nonverbal communication has been defined as communication without words. It includes
apparent behaviors such as facial expressions, eyes, touching, tone of voice, as well as less
obvious messages such as dress, posture and spatial distance between two or more people.
Activity or inactivity, words or silence all have message value: they influence others and these
others, in turn, respond to these communications and thus they are communicating.
Commonly, nonverbal communication is learned shortly after birth and practiced and refined
throughout a person's lifetime. Children first learn nonverbal expressions by watching and
imitating, much as they learn verbal skills.
Young children know far more than they can verbalize and are generally more adept at
reading nonverbal cues than adults are because of their limited verbal skills and their recent
reliance on the nonverbal to communicate. As children develop verbal skills, nonverbal channels
of communication do' not cease to exist although become entwined in the total communication
process.
1. According to the writer, ________.
A. Nonverbal language is only used by the deaf and the mute.
B. One cannot communicate in both verbal and .nonverbal language.
C. Those who can listen and talk should not use nonverbal language.
D. People communicate with both verbal and nonverbal language.

A. nonverbal can never get any responses
B. most people do not like nonverbal communication
C. even silence has message value
D. touching is not accepted in communicating

A. have learnt how to communicate in nonverbal language through books
B. can communicate in nonverbal language only when they are mature
C. have learnt how to communicate in nonverbal language since a child

What is life like for today’s students? As the university and college terms began, I talked to
a few students about their lives.
Sarah James is a second year biology student. “Money is a big problem”, said Sarah. “I can
eat quite cheaply at the university but I spend quite a lot on transport. I also spend quite a lot on
clothes, as I like to wear things that are in fashion”.
Colin Peter, who is studying engineering, disagrees. “I don’t spend anything on clothes,” he
said, “unless you count climbing boots. I’m very keen on climbing, and you do need special
equipment, some of which is very expensive. Luckily, my parents gave me money for my birthday
in November. Not much of my money goes on transport, because I have a bicycle.”
Diana Bell is a first year fashion student. “I make all my clothes. This should save me
money, but in fact, the materials are very expensive. I don’t know how I would manage if I didn’t
sell some of the dresses and hats I make to the other students. Everything is expensive”, she said.
“That includes the rent, food, transport and heating for the flat in winter.”
Jack is a science student in his final year. “What do I spend my money on?” Well, not on
clothes, and not a lot on going out in the evening. My rent is expensive, and I suppose I spend
quite a lot on books.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
Preparation is a key to a successful interview. Does the idea of going to a job interview make
you feel a little nervous? Many people find that it is the hardest part of the employing process. But
it is not really true. The more you prepare and practice, the more comfortable you will feel. You
should find out as much as possible about the company before you go to the interview. Understand
the products that they produce and the services that they provide. It is also good to know who the
customers are and who the major competitors are. Practice makes perfect. It will also make you
feel more confident and relaxed. So, practice your answers to common questions. Make a list of
questions to ask, too. Almost all interviewers will ask if you have questions. This is a great
opportunity for you to show your keenness, enthusiasm, and knowledge.
Make a great impression. The interview is your chance to show that you are the best person
for the job. Your application or resume has already exhibited that you are qualified. Now it is up to
you to show how your skills and experience match this position and this company. The employer

number of different qualities, in addition to the skills that you possess. To make the best
impression, dress appropriately; express your strengths; arrive early, by about 10-15 minutes; be
enthusiastic; shake hands firmly; be an active listener; sit up straight and maintain eye contact;
and ask questions
After the interview, follow up with a thank-you note. This is a chance for you to restate your
interest and how you can benefit the company. Your best bet is to try to time it so that the note gets
there before the hiring: decision is made. You should also follow up with a phone call if you do
not hear back from the employer within the specified time.

UNIT 8 _LIFE IN THE FUTURE


PRACTICE TEST 11

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate
the correct answer to each of the questions form 1 to 5.
One of the greatest advantages of robots is that they can work in situations that are
dangerous or harmful for human workers. For example, the continuous smell of paint has a
harmful effect on painters, but it doesn't "bother" a robot. Robots can work in nuclear
power plants and in undersea research stations that might be dangerous for humans.
Already, robots are working in the plastics industry and in chemical and industrial
equipment industries. One of the most common uses of robots is still in automobile
factories. They can do the heavy, unpleasant, or dangerous work. These kinds of industrial
robots are not usually "mobile". The work they need to do is brought to them, like cars on
an assembly line, for example.
The robot industry is a big business. By the middle of the 1990s, Japan led the world
in robot production with more than 71,000 industrial robots at work. Both the United States
and Japan, as well as other countries, continue to develop more advanced robots. Robots
can now be made to perform more complex jobs. Robots can make decisions while they
are working and learn from their mistakes. Robots can now see with TV camera "eyes."

They can easily hear and can even speak using a voice made by a computer. But it is
difficult to make a robot "understand." Thinking and understanding are very human
qualities. The robots of the future will probably be very complex. They will be able to
perform many humanlike tasks. Robots and other technology will make the future a very
interesting place!
1. We can infer from the passage that by the middle of the 1990s______________.
A. only Japan had used robots in production
B. Japan and the USA were the only countries to use robots
C. some countries had used robots in industrial production
D. Japan led the world in production thanks to robots
2. Which of the following are robots NOT be able to do?

PRACTICE TEST 15

Read the passage carefully, and then choose the best option of words to answer the
questions:
Reading, as you know, is a continuous and never ending process. If you do very little
reading, or if you read only material that offers no challenge to your comprehension, your reading
will be of very little use. Once we reach a certain age, or once our formal schooling is completed,
many of us become so restricted in our choice of reading that we rarely read any new type of
reading experience. We tend to read only books in our professional or business field, or only
inspirational books, or only our favorite newspapers every morning, or only one magazine for
which we have developed a preference. And the trouble starts here. You should neither read only
for entertainment nor only for information but you should also read for intellectual growth, for
mental stimulation, for enriching your background of knowledge, for wisdom, and for broader
outlook and mature understanding. What kind of books should you read to continue your
intellectual growth, to gain a background for opinion and for judgment? The answer is simple one:
Read books in fields you have little or no acquaintance with, books that will open for you new
horizons of learning, books that will help you explore new areas of knowledge and experience,
books that will make the world and people more understandable to you. Sadly, more and more
people today are giving up the printed word in favor of being entertained and informed by
watching TV, a popular entertainment ,device present at almost homes. More and more children
are being subjected to TV programming, perhaps as a babysitter. More than two hours of TV time
per day are now a part of children development, generating physiological and mental problems
that are of growing concern among experts.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 46 to 50.
As working women continue to receive better and better wages, housewives still work at
home without receiving pay – checks. Should a woman who works at home, doing the housework
and caring for children, be paid for her service? In a 1986 study at Cornell University, sociologists
found that the value of the services of a housewife averaged $ 11,600 a year. This rate was based
on a family composed of a husband, wife, and three young children. The $ 11,600 is what the
husband would have to pay if he hired others to take over his wife’s houshold chores. The
researchers concluded that it would be fair for husbands to pay wives according to federal
guidelines for minimum wages.
Another plan for rewarding women who work at home has been suggested by a former
Secretary of Health and Human Services. He says that full-time housewives should be allowed to
pay social security taxes, with their employers contributing part of the payment. He feels that the
present system is unfair. He said, “ If you stay at home and raise a family, nobody will give you
credit for it.”
46. What is the main purpose of this passage ?
A. To encourage women to go out to work.
B. To ask men to treat wives better.
C. To suggest that housewives should be paid for their household chores.
D. To suggest that men should share the housework with their wives.
47. A housewife’s services in a family of five people are worth--------------a month on average.
A. $ 160 B. nearly $ 1,000 C. more than $ 1,000 D. $ 1,600
48. According to the researchers, husbands should ----------------
A. hire others to take over their wives’ household chores.
B. help their wives with the housework.
C. pay wages to their wives for their housework.
D. care for the children.
49. What is NOT true about the passage ?
A. Unlike working women, housewives get no pay for housework.
B. Full-time housewives are allowed to pay social security taxes.
C. Housewives’ services should be rewarded.
D. Women who go to work get more offers than housewives.
50. The underlined word “ their employers” in the passage refers to----------------
A. their bosses B. their sponsors C. their owners D. their husbands
