o A or An? The general rule is that we


use a before a consonant and an
before a vowel:
a bowl, a car,a dog, but... an ant, an elephant,
an insect, an orange, an urn
But, what is important here is not the way a word is
written, but the way it sounds. We choose a or an
depending on the sound at the beginning of the word
and whether it is a vowel sound or a consonant sound.
For example, take the word uniform. Although it
begins with a vowel - u - when we write it, when we
say it the first sound is /y/ which is a consonant:
uniform is pronounced /junfm/ so we say a
uniform
One word which is often confused is hotel. Some
people pronounce this word as /htl/ so they
would write:
a hotel. But other people pronounce this
word as /tl/ and so they would write:
an hotel
o
The Zero Article does not
exist. It is a useful term to use when
describing how to use articles.
Essentially when we talk about the
zero article, we mean that we dont use
any article in front of a noun.
For example, when we use a noun with a preposition,
we often do not use an article (that is, we just use the
noun on its own):
I went to school but left my books at home. Mother
was in church and father at sea; Grandfather came to
dinner later by train and Grandmother managed to
escape from prison to join us.
When we talk about an institution, we use the zero
article.

The definite article doesn't change. It is always


the whether the noun is masculine, feminine or
neuter, singular or plural. We use the definite
article - the - when we talk about a singular or
plural noun which refers to a particular member
of a a group.
The woman.The man.The door.The doors.
Prior Reference
We often use the after the noun has already been
mentioned. For example:
An Englishman, an Irishman and a Sctosman walk into a
pub. The Englishman ordered a bitter; the Irishman
ordered a Guiness and the Scotsman ordered a whisky.
The first time we mention the noun we use the indefinite
article and from then on we use the definite article.
Known Reference
If both speakers know what they are talking about they
can use the even though the noun may not have been
mentioned before. In other words, it is implied that the
noun has already been mentioned.
Excuse me, do you know what the time is?
Where's the toilet?
In these examples, the speaker assumes that the listener
knows what is being talked about.
Miscellanous In addition, the is used in the following

special circumstances

Exceptions include: the Hague; the Matterhorn; the


Mall; the White House, the United States of America
We use the definite article - the - when we talk about a
singular or plural noun which refers to a particular
member of a a group.
In this example the group is all men; we want to reference
a particular man so we say: The man in the hat.
Compare this with the indefinite article which refers to
any man in the group: A man in a hat.

English is my mother tongue. Besides, I can speak French and Spanish. I studied the
two languages when I was at high school. Now, I am still learning Spanish at the
University. As for me, mastering a foreign language is not easy. After studying a
language, practice is very necessary and useful. Traveling to the country where the
target language is spoken is very helpful, but if you cannot speak the language well
enough you will certainly have troubles. I also frequently go to the movies, watch
television, listen to the radio in the language I am trying to learn. Reading is another
good way to learn. Books are good, but I personally think newspapers and magazines
are better. However, getting some knowledge of the language is the most important

London, the capital of Great Britain, is situated on the Thames River. It is the largest
city in Europe with a population of over 8 million. It is divided into four parts: the City,
Westminster, the West End and the East End.
The city is small in area but it is the commercial heart of London. Many banks
and offices are situated there. The Tower and St. Paul's Cathedral is very large and
fine. It was built in 1710. The famous English architect Christopher Wren planned and
built St. Paul's Cathedral. If the city may be called the commercial heart of London,
Westminster is the center of the administration. We can see the Houses of Parliament
there. It is a beautiful building with two towers and a very big clock called Big Ben.
Westminster Abbey is opposite the Houses of Parliament.
The West End with the best and most expensive clubs, restaurants and theatres,
beautiful houses and parks is the place where rich people live. Working people live in

Question VIII : Read the following passage carefully and choose the best answer to
each question (10p):
One of the most urgent environmental problems in the world today is the shortage of
clean water. Having clean drinking water is basic human right. But acid rain, industrial
pollution and garbage have made many sources of water undrinkable. Lakes, reservoirs and
even entire seas have become vast pools of poison. Lake Baikal in Russia is one of the
largest lakes in the world. It contains a rich variety of animals and plants, including 1,300
rare species that do not exist anywhere else in the world. But they are being destroyed by
the massive volumes of industrial effluent which pour into the lake everyday. Even where law
existed, the government did not have the power to enforce them. Most industries simply
ignore the regulations. The Mediterranean Sea occupies 1% of the worlds water surface. But
it is the dumping ground for 50% of all marine pollution. Almost 16 countries regularly throw
industrial wastes a few miles off shore .
Water is free to everyone. A few years ago people thought that the supply of clean
water in the world was limitless. Today, many water supplies have been ruined by pollution
and sewage . Clean water is now scarce, and we are at last beginning to respect this
precious source. We should do something now.

Tim was ten years old. He was not a very good pupil, and he did not like having

Then one day, his mathematics teacher looked at Tims homework and saw that

There are many sources of pollution in our modern world. At present, the most serious
sources are acid rain, car exhaust fumes and oil spills.
Factory chimneys give out smoke that contains sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxide.
These gases combine with water vapour in the atmosphere to form sulphuric acid and nitric
acid. When it rains, these acids dissolve in the rain and make it acidic. Acid rain is believed
to be the worst pollution problem of all. It has harmed water life by turning many lakes into
lifeless bodies of water.

I. Read the following passage and answer the questions below. (1m)
Nutrition plays a key role in maintaining good health and preventing many
diseases. In spite of all the information available about diets, Scientists still believe
that good nutrition can be simple. There are several basic rules to follow. Keep fat
intake low. Eat foods high in carbohydrates, which are the starches in grains, legumes
(beans and peas), vegetables, and some fruits. Avoid too much sugar. Limit salt. Eat
lots of fruits and vegetables, which are high in vitamins.
A healthful lifestyle is an active lifestyle. Lack of proper physical exercise can cause
tiredness, irritability, and poor general health. Physical fitness requires both aerobic exercise,
such as running, bicycle riding and swimming, and muscle-strengthening exercices, such as
weight-lifting.

Good health is acquired by saying no to bad habits such as smoking, drinking and
overeating and by avoiding situations that are constantly stressful. People can take
their lives and their happiness into their own hands. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is
the first step.

KETCHUP
The sauce that is today called ketchup ( or catsup) in Western cultures is a tomato_based sauce that is quite distinct from
Eastern ancestors of this product. A sauce called ke-tjap was in used in China at least as early as the 17th century, but the
Chinese version of the sauce was made of picked fish, shellfish, and spices. The popularity of this Chinese sauce spread to
Singapore and Malaysia, where it was called kechap. The Indonesian ketjab derives its name from the same source of the
Malysian sauce but is made from very different ingredients. The Indonesian ketjab is made by cooking black soy beans,
fermenting them, placing them in a salt brine for at least a week , cooking the resulting solution further, and sweetening it
heavily; this process results in a dark, thick and sweet variation of soy sauce.
Early in the 18th century, sailors from the Bristish navy came across this exotic sauce on voyages to Malaysia and Singapore
and brought samples of it back to England on return voyages. English chefs tried to recreate the sauce but were unable to do
exactly because key ingredients were unknown or unavailable in England; chefs ended up substituting ingredients such as
mushrooms and walnuts in an attempt to recreate the special taste of the original Asian sauce. Variations of this sauce became
quite the rage in the 18th century England, appearing in a number of recipe books and features as an exotic addition to menus
from the period.
The English version did not contain tomatoes, and it was not until the end of the 18th century that tomatoes became a main
ingredients in the ketchup of the United States. It is quite notable that tomatoes were added to the sauce and that tomatoes had
previously been considered quite dangerous to health. That tomato had been cultivated by the Aztecs, who had called it tomalt;
however, early botanists had recognized that tomato was a member of the Solanecaea family, wich does include a number of
poisonous plant. The leaves of the tomato plant are poisonous, though of course the fruit is not.
Thomas Jefferson, who cultivated the tomato in his gardens at Monticello and served dishes containing tomatoes at lavish
feasts, often receive credit for changing the reputation of the tomato. Soon after Jefferso had introduced the tomato to American
society, recipes combining the new fashinonabe tomato with the equally fashionable and exotic sauce known as ketchap began
to appear. By the middle of the 19th century, both of the tomato and tomato ketchup were stables of the American kitchen.
Tomato ketchup,popular though it was,was quite time-consuming to prepare. In 1876,the first mass-produced tomato ketchup, a
product of German-American Henry Heizn,went on sale and achieved immediate success. From tomato ketchup, Heizn
branched out into a number of other products, including various sauces, pickles, and relishes.

Everybody loves movies. We see them at theatres and we watch them on TV. They are popular with children and
adults, too. We can learn from them or we can have a good time watching them.
We also call movies 'motion pictures'. 'Motion' is a noun for 'moving'. People tried to show motion in pictures for
centuries. Even prehistoric artists showed animals running in theier cave pictures.
Near the end of the 19th century several Europeans and Americans tried to make movies. No one knows who made
the first one. New York City had the first movie theatre in 1894. People put money in a small machine and looked
into it at the movie. By 1900, movies were popular all over Europe and the United States. They were not very good,
but people liked them because they were new and different.
Every year people invented ways to make movies better. They invented machines to show the pictures on a screen.
Then everyone could see the motion pictures on the front wall of a theatre instead of inside a small machine. In 1927,
inventors add sound to movies. Then they added color.
Today it costs several million dollars to make a movie. However, movie makers collect million dollars from people
at movie theatres because everyone loves movies.
te T if the sentence is true, and F if it is false.
a. Children like movies, but most adults do not.
b. We can learn from motion pictures.
c. Prehistoric artists showed motion in the cave paintings.
d. An American made the first movie.

PART II : READING COMPREHENSION : ( 6.0 pts )
Question 3 : Read the passage below then state whether the following sentences are
TRUE or FALSE :
It is important to have healthy teeth. Good teeth help us to chew our food. They also help
us to look nice. How does a tooth go bad? The decay begins in a little crack in the enamel
covering of the tooth. This happens after germs and bits of food have collected there. Then
the decay slowly spreads inside the tooth. Eventually, poison goes into the blood, and we
may feel quite ill.
How can we keep our teeth healthy? Firstly, we ought to visit our dentist twice a year. He
can fill the small holes in our teeth before they destroy the teeth. He can examine our teeth
to check that they are growing in the right way. Unfortunately, many people wait until they
have toothache before they see a dentist. Secondly, we should brush our teeth with a
toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day- once after breakfast and once before

we go to bed. We can also use wooden toothpicks to clean between our teeth after a meal.
