TASK 1 (8 points)
Below are descriptions of 8 films showing at the cinema. Choose one film for each person that best matches their interests. Choose "None" if there is no match!1. The Delivery
2. And Tomorrow We Find You
A fast-moving adult story about a San Francisco policeman in danger. Based on real-life happening, it keeps you guessing right until the last minute. Although there are no big stars, there are some fine performances.
3. The Ends of the Earth
A story based on a real-life journey to the South Pole. This film contains some quite wonderful wildlife photography - make sure you see it while you have the chance, or you'll be sorry.
4. Islands of Fire
You get spectacular scenery and lots of thrills in this action-packed story, in which a young sea-captain rescues terrified villagers from a volcanic island in the South Sea.
5. Out of School
Here we live through a day in the life of an American teenager who has problems not only with his parents and their boring friends but also with his first girl-friend who just doesn't seem to understand him.
6. A Time of Silence
Don't forget your handkerchief for this story of a young college boy and girl who manage to survive all the pressures of modern life. And what an unforgettable wedding scene!
7. A Private Party
A wonderfully funny comedy, which takes place in the 1940s. A reporter and his very worried wife try to save a friendly pig from the local butcher. The actors really make the most of this clever script.
8. Who Shot Malone?

A. Joanne is studying art at university. She usually goes to the cinema on Friday evening. She enjoys films that are based on real life and from which she can learn something.
B. Sheila has decided to take her mother to the cinema for her birthday. They both like love stories that have happy endings.

D. Adam wants to take his 10-year-old son Mark to the cinema at the weekend. They want to see a film with plenty of excitement.
E. Harry and Joyce go to the cinema about twice a month. They particularly like detective stories and do not pay much attention to which actors are in the film.
TASK 2 (7 points)
Look at the sentences about how to drive a car.
Read the text below to decide if each statement is true (T) or false (F)
How to Save Petrol and the Environment.
We are all aware of the need to protect the environment but sometimes it's difficult for us to do the right thing. Did you know that making a few simple changes to your driving habits will not only do less damage to our world but will also save you money and could even be good for your health?
Do you really need to take the car?
Try making more use of public transport. If the service is frequent and reliable you'll soon get used to using buses and trains. In fact, for shorter journeys why not take the opportunity to get into shape and go on foot.
Share the journey.
How often do you see cars with just one occupant with the driver making the same journey as others living nearby? Why not car share and half the cost of the journey? There are several websites where people can swap details and make arrangements to meet up.
Change your habits.
When you must use the car, plan your journey so you can go to all the places you need to visit rather than taking the car out again and again. If you get caught in a traffic jam, switch off the engine when you're stationary for a long time. On cold mornings don't warm up the engine before you start your journey and when you next put fuel in your car think about whether you really need to fill up the tank. All that extra weight will put more pressure on the engine.
Steps like this will save you money and help you do your bit to protect the environment.
TASK 3(5 points)
Read the text and choose one correct answer
I shifted uncomfortably inside my best suit and eased a finger inside the tight white collar. It was hot in the little bus and I had taken a seat on the wrong side where the summer sun beat on the windows. It was a strange outfit for the weather, but a few miles ahead my future employer might be waiting for me and I had to make a good impression.
There was a lot depending on this interview. Many friends who had qualified with me were unemployed or working in shops or as labourers in the shipyards. So many that I had almost given up hope of any future for myself as a veterinary surgeon.
There were usually two or three jobs advertised in the Veterinary Record each week and an average of eighty applicants for each one. It hadn’t seemed possible when the letter came from Darrowby in Yorkshire. Mr. S. Farnon would like to see me on the Friday afternoon; I was to come to tea and, if we were suited to each other, I could stay on as his assistant. Most young people emerging from the colleges after five years of hard work were faced by a world unimpressed by their enthusiasm and bursting knowledge. So I had grabbed the lifeline unbelievingly.
The driver crashed his gears again as we went into another steep bend. We had been climbing steadily now for the last fifteen miles or so, moving closer to the distant blue of the Pennine Hills. I had never been in Yorkshire before, but the name had always raised a picture of a region as heavy and unromantic as the pudding of the same name; I was prepared for solid respectability, dullness and a total lack of charm. But as the bus made its way higher, I began to wonder. There were high grassy hills and wide valleys. In the valley bottoms, rivers twisted among the trees and solid grey stone farmhouses lay among islands of cultivated land which pushed up the wild, dark hillsides.
Suddenly, I realised the bus was clattering along a narrow street which opened onto a square where we stopped. Above the window of a small grocer’s shop I read ‘Darrowby Co-operative Society’. We had arrived. I got out and stood beside my battered suitcase, looking about me. There was something unusual and I didn’t know what it was at first. Then it came to me. The other passengers had dispersed, the driver had switched off the engine and there was not a sound or a movement anywhere. The only visible sign of life was a group of old men sitting round the clock tower in the centre of the square, but they might have been carved of stone.
