Read the letter to the editor of a fashion magazine and mark the sentences T (true), F (false) or NS (not stated).
I saw your article on top models, with lots of amazing photos, in last Saturday’s magazine and I was really sad. You present women as objects to look at! What’s more, printing such pictures is rather irresponsible.
I want to tell you about my younger sister Alice. She was a normal, sociable, easy-going and optimistic girl. At the age of 14 she started reading glossy magazines and looking at photos of models and film stars all the time. She started being on a diet and even when she got thin, she couldn’t stop. She had to go to hospital with anorexia.
Can you imagine how many teen girls this may happen as a result of looking at skinny females? Why don’t you write articles about women who are generous, patient and sincere? Or who have done something special for other people? They are the right kind of models for young girls.

Richard would like to read articles about impatient people.

Предлагаю второй вариант опубликованной ранее контрольной работы (теста) по первому модулю в 8-м классе УМК Spotlight. Посторюсь, в нашей школе во всех классах обучение проводится по учебникам Spotlight. УМК включает в себя сборник тестов - Test Booklet. Но из-за того, что все ответы к нему даны в открытом доступе, использование их для контроля становится практически бессмысленным -- ученики все списывают или заучивают ответы, а в иных случаях просто заранее прорешивают задания (сами или с репетитором). Материал для теста взят из разных источников, в том числе, и свое собственные наработки.
