Viral marketing is used to promote

1. only chocolate, health products and football teams..

2. things that potential buyers need badly.

3. all types of goods, products and other things.

What is TRUE about Viral marketing and advertising?

1. It is inexpensive compared to traditional advertising.

2. It is always more successful than “hard sell” advertising.

3. It randomly contacts huge numbers of people.

What is NOT TRUE about Viral advertising and marketing?

1. It forces people to buy unnecessary things.

2. It only works on teenagers or people with hobbies.

3. It is the practice of placing messages on Internet sites.

It is called an epidemic when

1. huge numbers of people buy what they really need.

2. lots of people become internet friends.

3. huge numbers of people pass on a sales message.

Many believe that viral marketing is wrong because

1. it steals peoples secrets.

2. hired people pretend to be members of a chat group.

3. it puts innocent comments on the internet.

Astroturfing is about

1. sharing and discussing political opinions.

2. spontaneous “word of mouth” opinion sharing.

3. falsely creating public opinion.

The writer believes the best way to get an opinion is to

1. be cautious about astroturfing techniques.

2. hear it in real conversations.

3. avoid fake messages.

Раздел 2. Чтение

1. The wrong goal

2. Extra-curricular over load

3. Too much homework

4. Arguably helpful

5. Too stressful

6. Too many distractions

7. A better system

8. Poor co-ordination

A. My problem with homework is that I am rather fond of TV and computer games. Every evening after school it is the same. I start with the highest intentions. I’ll just play one round of Final fantasy and then begin. But it tends to be three rounds and then tea time. Oh — and then my favourite program begins in 10 minutes so I’ll start after that. And so it goes on. Probably I lack motivation.

B. It is so much faster doing homework these days. All our assignments can be done on the PC which means correcting and changing things is so easy. But of course the Internet is the biggest shortcut of all. Maybe it’s true what they say that it stops you reading textbooks. You get snatches of information rather than the whole story. Maybe I should try to use the internet less.

C. I am a drummer and a pianist. The school really encourages this and I have two one hour lessons a week plus one to two hours daily practice. I am in the basketball team. The school encourages this and we practice twice a week. I got picked to be in the school play. Rehearsals are two hours a week. Will somebody please tell me when I am supposed to get my homework done?

D. Exam practice, constant revision, exam techniques and how to get the highest possible grade— is this what education is supposed to be about? The school seems obsessed with grades and the school results league table. We are currently 17th highest achievers in England but if we really try hard this year we might make top 10. Silly me! I thought education was about learning and preparing for adult life.

E. For some kids exams bring more pressure than they can cope with. They worry about what their parents will say, not to mention what their teachers or class mates will think. No wonder some of them freeze up in the exam hall and are unable to write anything out of sheer nerves.

F. Why do they do it? We get three weeks in a row with minimal homework and then every teacher in the school sets a massive assignment to be completed “by next Friday — no late submissions”. Why don’t they get together and try and even the load?

G. I think Continuous Assessment is a very sensible idea. Education should not simply be about slick exam performance, but about overall how you perform in school — how you study, how much you read, how logical and clear your essay arguments are. 50% of our final grading should be based on course work. I think it is fair.

1. not like to spend our time

2. that it’s probably not quite

3. that particular day turned

4. our real shopping in

5. sometimes go shopping for real

6. anything you want and there is

7. but when we are together

The day would be spent with my best friends Kath and Kate. We are actually three Catherines (by birth spelt with а С), A ___ we are all K’s: Kat (that’s me), Kath and Kate — the 3K Window Shopping gang! Window shopping is simply wonderful. You can look at any outfit. You can try on В ___ not a single item on sale for which the price is a problem. You will try something on, ponder, pout, twirl, think hard, check yourself in the mirror one last time and finally reflect С ___ right for you! The highlight of this regular adventure however, is generally the 3K chocolate and ice cream break in the Shopping Centre’s top floor cafii Of course we do not believe that we are wasting anyone’s time. We do D ___ as well, but a reliable equation for us is — 3Ks + shopping mall = a good time. But E ___ out to be especially memorable. One of the stores had a questionnaire lottery with the first prize being a voucher worth £ 200. We filled in the question forms while in the caffiand returned to the store by their 2.00 pm deadline. Kate won the first prize but we had decided in advance that if any of us won something, we would share equally: All for one К and one for all! At this point our morning of window shopping paid off. We completed F ___ slightly less than 10 minutes: three skirts, three hats and three belts and three very OK, K’s.

At that time the people of Britain would have been shocked to know that women were flying their most famous war plane. But the fact is that the ATA (Air Transport Auxiliary) had over 100 women pilots who delivered more than 300,000 air craft during the war. We had to fly the Spitfires from the factories and deliver them to airfields dotted around the south of England. Normally we would be flying in daylight with good visibility conditions. That is why we were never given instrument training as our instructors told us that with all the restrictions of war time, there was no time or money to spare for this luxury.

Occasionally we had to fly other aircraft — without any kind of additional training at all. Probably some high ranking, non-flying military official somewhere said that all aircraft were exactly the same to fly. Well — I can assure you that this is not true. With unfamiliar aircraft we had ten minutes to read an instruction booklet called the “Ferry Pilot Notes”: And that was it. We had to climb in, fire up, taxi and then take off in completely unknown flying machines.

That particular day, the day I came so close to death, was my twenty first birthday. I had no cake or candles that day and my two friends and myself shared some chocolate— the only luxury available in those days. We drank apple juice, and ate apples and cheese. We entertained ourselves with silly stories. But at one solemn moment we also made a toast to absent friends and remembered the girls who had died delivering aircraft.

In the morning we were driven to the factory and my worst fears were realized. Instead of a lovely new and familiar Spitfire I had a bulky Torpedo bomber. We all hated these as several had crashed without any clear reason why. I was able to take the Ferry Pilot Notes into the canteen and studied them over breakfast. I had a very uneasy feeling in my stomach which had nothing to do with the breakfast I was consuming. I had birthday kisses from the other girls but it only made me feel worse.

At about 111 was given my flight plan and it was time to go. I looked at the sky. There was a strange quality to the light that I didn’t like and I was worried. With no instrument training, fog or mist made flying incredibly dangerous and absolutely terrifying. With a heavy heart I fired up the engine.

Within 20 minutes I was approaching the river Forth. But I couldn’t see the river as clouds thickened up around me. I took the aircraft lower and lower looking for a glimpse of the ground. At one point I was sure that I was virtually at ground level but I couldn’t see a thing. It was too dangerous to continue. I could hear my heart beating even over the roar of the engine.

When it happened — it happened really quickly. The plane hit water. I didn’t see anything. I was thrown against my straps — and then a flood of cold seawater in my eyes and mouth. I was a mile out to sea!

I was certain I was going to die. Funnily enough — I was perfectly calm. I even thought that my ATA insurance payment would really be a big help to my Mother. But then survival instinct kicked in. I was still alive — and close to shore. I had no life jacket or any survival gear but I was a good swimmer. I was certain there were no bones broken and I didn’t have to swim far. I was picked up by a fishing boat that I had narrowly missed in the fog. And in the end I got a real birthday drink after all — a cup of spiced, dark rum.

The Holiday

They used to spend their summers in a holiday cottage in the country and the winters in London. But that year Alice felt restless and Robert wanted to take her to some new and far away place for a complete change.

So, one evening he suggested the idea to her and Alice sprang to it joyously. She thought she would like to go to Italy and Robert wondered whether Sweden was a possibility. They’ve never been to Sweden before.

Then Alice remembered seeing some advertisements for Greece and Robert said that France might be a good idea. Finally, without deciding where to go, they realized, that it would be wise to think about the cost of going abroad.

“Well, first of all we must decide about .the car,” Alice said. “If we don’t take it, we shall have to stay in one place.”

“And if we decided to take it,” Robert argued, “we shall have to use a car ferry, either ship or plane.” A long discussion followed.

“We had better take the car,” Robert said, “because we just can’t afford to fly all the way. But if we fly across the Channel with the car, we shan’t be able to afford to stay in a hotel.” He glanced up at Alice, and something in her eyes made him suspect she was disappointed.

But then she suddenly put forward a new suggestion. “If we flew all the way,” she mused 1 , “we couldn’t pay the hotel bills. If we flew across the Channel with the car, we still shouldn’t be able to stay in a hotel. But if we bought a tent, we should be able to use the air ferry — and have a camping holiday. And then we might be able to go to several countries instead of one.”

It seemed the perfect arrangement and neither of them could find any objection to the idea. So having made sure to have three weeks’ holiday from the 1* August they went along to a sports shop, and after carefully examining five different tents, decided which one would be most suitable and brought it home.

Then things started to happen. Robert found that he couldn’t get tickets for the air ferry during the first week in August. And, west of all, the car began making peculiar jerks 2 ; and the mechanic at Robert’s usual garage explained that if he took it abroad, he would be asking for trouble.

That evening Robert’s sister-in-law phoned from Wales full of excitement because they were going to Italy with some money her uncle had sent her, and they had been lucky enough to get the last two air ferry tickets for the

first week in August.

“We are very pleased for you,” Robert said weakly, and began a long explanation of their own problem.

“But that’s easy,” his sister-in-law enthused 3 .

Have our house in Wales. Your car is good enough to take you here,
and we shan’t be needing the place because we shall be away. Now, don’t think any more about it The house is yours for the first three weeks in August, and you’ll like it here in Wales.”

Travelling by Train

Text A

From Paddington

Mrs. L. panted (1) along the platform in the wake (2) of the porter carrying her suit-case. Mrs L. was burdened with a large quantity of parcels, the result of a day’s Christmas shopping. The race was, therefore, an uneven one.

No 1 platform was not at the moment unduly crowded, a crowd was rushing in several directions at once, to and from undergrounds, left-luggage offices, tea-rooms, inquiry offices, indicator-boards, and the two outlets, Arrival and Departure, to the outside world.

Mrs L. and her parcels arrived eventually at the entrance to No 3 Platform. She searched her bag for the ticket that would enable her to pass the stern uniformed guardian at the gate. At last Mrs. L. found her ticket and presented it. The man clipped it and murmured: “On the right-

Mrs. L. went up the platform and found her porter outside the door of a third-class carriage.

“Here you are, lady”

Travelling by Air

Two Weeks in Another Town

It was a cold gray day without wind. By nightfall it would rain. There was the spasmodic engine whine of unseen planes. The plane from New York had been delayed and the echoing voice had announced in French and English over the public-address system that the flight for Rome had been put back by a half-hour.

The usual gloom of airports, that-mixture of haste and apprehension which has become the atmosphere of travel because nobody waits comfortably for the take-off of an airplane, was intensified by the weather. The neon light made everyone look poor and unwell. There was a feeling that if each traveller had the chance to choose again, he would cancel his passage and go by boat or train or automobile.

In a corner of the restaurant a man and a woman waited, drinking coffee.

Then the voice in French and English announced that the passengers were asked to pass through Customs; the plane for Rome, flight No. 804, was ready and was loading. The man hurried past the Customs and out on to the wet tarmac toward the waiting plane. As the plane taxied off toward the starting point on the runway, the man saw his wife and children, outside the restaurant now, waving, then settled back in his seat, relieved. The plane gathered speed for the take off.

At the Customs

Airport Customs

“Madam”, said U.S. Customs Inspector Harry Standish quietly to the naughty angular woman whose several suitcases were spread open on the Customs inspection table between them, “are you quite sure you don’t wish to change your story?”

She snapped back: ” I suppose you’re suggesting I should lie when I’ve J already told you the truth”.

Harry Standish ignored the second remark, as Customs officers were trained to ignore many insults they received and answered politely, “I’m not suggesting anything, madam. I merely asked if you wished to amend 1 your statement about these items — the dresses, the sweaters and the fur i coat.”

The American passport showed that she was Mrs. Harriet Du Barry Mossman. Harry Standish said: “I wonder if you’d mind signing this form. If you like, I’ll explain it to you.”

“Why should I sign anything?” Mrs. Harriet Du Barry Mossman/
demanded. \

He answered patiently, “To make things easier for yourself, madam We’re merely asking you to confirm what you’ve already told us.”

“Suppose I refuse to sign?”

“Then we shall be obliged to detain you here while we continue the investigation.”

There was the brief hesitation, then, “Very well. You fill out the form, I’ll sign.”

“No, madam, you fill it out. Now here, please, describe the items and alongside where you say they were obtained, please, give the name of the stores; also from whom you received the fur coat as a gift.”

“Madam,” Inspector Standish said, “is there anything else you wish to declare?” It was Customs Bureau policy to give travellers the utmost opportunity to make voluntary declarations.

“In that case, Madam,” Inspector Standish said, “Will you kindly open your handbag?”

For the first time the naughty woman betrayed uncertainty. “But surely purses are never inspected.”

“Normally, they are not. But we do have the right.” Mrs. Mossman was noticeably pale.

The Inspector instructed the young Customs officer beside him: “Inspect , everything very carefully. Check the things in the bag and cases, the seams and hems of all the clothes. Make a list. You know what to do.”

He was leaving when Mrs. Mossman called after him: “Officer!”

The First Trip Abroad

by Sidney Sheldon

Early the following morning Tracy stopped at a travel agency and reserved a suite on the Signal Deck of the Queen Elizabeth II. She was as excited as a child about her first trip abroad, and spent the next three days buying clothes and luggage.

On the morning of the sailing Tracy hired a limousine to drive her to the pier. When she arrived at Pier 90, Berth 3, at West Fifty-fifth and Twelfth Avenue, where the QE II was docked, it was crowded with photographers and television reporters. Tracy brushed past them, showed her passport to a ship’s officer at the gangplank, and walked up onto the ship. On deck, a steward looked at Tracy’s ticket and directed her to he] stateroom. It was a lovely suite, with a private terrace. It had beef ridiculously expensive, but Tracy decided it was going to be worth it.

She unpacked and then wandered along the coridor. In almost even cabin there were farewell parties going on, with laughter and champagne and conversation. She felt a sudden ache of lonelinnes. There was no one to see her off.

She made her way up to the Boat Deck and heard the sound of a deep-throated boat whistle and calls of “All ashore who’s going ashore”, and she was filled with a sudden excitement. She was sailing into a completer) unknown future. She felt the huge ship shudder as the tugs started to pull it out of the harbour, and she stood among the passengers on the Boat Deck, watching the Statue of Liberty slide out of sight, and then she went exploring.

The QE II was a city, more than nine hundred feet long and thirteen stories high. It had four restaurants , six bars, two ballrooms, two nightclubs, and a “Golden Door Spa at Sea”.

Белые холмы Дувра

Мэгги и Эдвард Эрлинги уже несколько раз были в Англии. Обычно они летели на самолете, но на этот раз решили попробовать морем. “Думаю, нас укачает, но один раз в жизни надо испытать все.” – сказала Мэгги, когда они покупали билеты.

Прибыли в Кале как раз перед отправлением парома. Проследив за тем, как их чемоданы отнесли в багажное отделение, они сразу же спустились в ресторан позавтракать.

Поднявшись после завтрака на палубу, они увидели, что французский берег почти исчез, зато впереди в ярком солнечном свете можно было различить холмы Англии – белые холмы Дувра 1 .

Как и многие другие пассажиры, Мэгги и Эдвард, облокотясь на поручни, наблюдали, как приближался английский берег. Наконец, они были в Дуврском порту. Сдав посадочные талоны, они ступили на причал; на таможне проверили их паспорта и отдали багаж. Пройдя через ворота, они оказались на платформе и через несколько минут уже сидели на своих забронированных местах в Лондонском поезде. Когда поезд прибыл к месту назначения, Эдвард собрался было взять такси, но Мэгги сказала, что лучше на метро — такова традиция. Оставив вещи в камере хранения, они поехали по ветке Дистрикт Лайн 2 .

Sam: Hi, Rachel! What are you doing here?

Rachel: Hi! I’ve been to my dad’s office. My mother asked me to give him some papers. And now I’m walking home.

Sam: What does your dad do?

Rachel: He is an accountant.

Sam: Mine is a musician, a violinist.

Rachel: Wow! It must be very exciting.

Sam: Yes, it certainly is. Dad loves music. He enjoys playing his violin. Sometimes he plays from early morning till evening when preparing for a concert.

Rachel: Goodness me! Does he have any time for hobbies?

Sam: Not a lot really. We play football every weekend through if he doesn’t perform. And what is your dad’s hobby?

Rachel: He likes fishing.

Sam: Fishing! For me it is a bit boring to sit there and wait for so long doing nothing.

Rachel: Actually he doesn’t seem to think so. It gives him relief from stress. Even it he catches no fish at all, it is much better than the time spent at home doing chores.

Sam: Sounds interesting! Maybe you are right.

  2. New objects discovered
  3. The Milky Way is not the only one
  4. Exciting mathematics
  5. An inspiring fruit
  6. The honourable prize

A. American astronomer Edwin Hubble is famous for discovering the existence of other galaxies, as well as his important work of astrophysics and his invention of the most powerful Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble had a great influence on astronomy, and science in general, by showing that other galaxies besides our own Milky Way existed. People used to think that there was only Milky Way galaxy, Hubble’s discoveries which were announced in 1925 changed our view of the universe. An asteroid and a moon crater were also named after him.

B. Sir Isaak Newton is one of the most influential scientists of all time. He came up with numerous theories and ideas in many different fields such as physics, mathematics and philosophy. In 1687, Newton published the book Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica. In it he describes universal gravitation and the three laws of movement. Newton was known to have said that his work on developing a theory of gravitation was inspired by watching an apple fall from a tree. A story is well-known to this very day.

C. Stephen Hawking was one of the most famous scientists of modern times. He gave the world of science a lot of new ideas and theories. He helped to make science popular with general public by writing easy-to-read books such as A Brief History of Time. Hawking worked a lot on the subject of black holes, providing theories for their behaviour, including the idea that they emit radiation.

D. Galileo Galilei was an Italian scientist who helped open the eyes of the world to a new way of thinking about our solar system and astronomy in general. Among his inventions were telescopes, a compass and a thermometer. With his telescopes Galileo could observe the sky in absolutely new ways. He discovered Jupiter’s four largest satellite moons. The discovery of these moons was against scientific ideas of that time and it was difficult for Galileo to explain to some people that he had indeed discovered such objects.

E. Albert Einstein is perhaps the most famous scientist of all time. Both his image and brilliant work on theoretical physics live on today and he is an inspiration to young scientists around the world. Even when he was very young, Einstein showed great ability in both math and science. He was naturally curious and had a brilliant analytical mind. He is also well known for his theory of relativity. Einstein won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on theoretical physics.
