Task 1.

My home is a windmill

by Josh Summers, aged 14

My home’s different from where my friends live because I live in a19th century windmill! My parents saw it one day, and bought it. It was in poor condition, but it was repaired and now it’s fantastic!

The windmill was once used to make flour from corn. The corn store used to be downstairs, where our kitchen is now, and horses came there to deliver the corn. The enormous 20metre sails are still on the front, but they don’t turn in the wind like they used to because it’s too dangerous, so birds live in them instead. There’s always a ladder up the side of the windmill so that dad can paint it and keep it a nice cream colour. He also cleans the windows, although a company comes to do the top ones as the ladder’s too short.

Inside it’s like a tent with six sides, and it becomes more pointed towards the top, so the rooms get smaller. My room’s under the roof and I get a fantastic view – it’s like looking out of an airplane window. There are some other houses around now, and a new main road, but I can relax and make a noise when I play my guitar up there and no one can hear me! I can hear everything, though, like the birds when it’s quiet, which is really calming, or the very loud storms, which I can see coming towards us. And I actually find it easier to concentrate on my school work up there, as my brothers and sisters don’t want to climb up all the stairs, so they don’t disturb me! I can’t imagine living anywhere else!


1. What is Josh trying to do in the text?


A compare his home with his friends

B explain why his family chose to live in their current home

C tell readers about advantages of living where he does

D suggest how his home could be improved


2. What does Josh say about the outside of the windmill?


A Wild creatures have made their homes there.

B It’s covered in dark paint.

C There’s a ladder that goes right to the top.

D The windows frequently need cleaning.


3. Josh says that his room


A is a bit like an aeroplane inside.

B is a good place for practicing a musical instrument.

C is the largest one in the windmill.

D is better for relaxing in than doing school work.


4. What does Josh say about the different sounds he hears in the windmill?


A He dislikes the noise of the sails in the wind.

B He enjoys listening to all the birds.

C He feels nervous when a loud storm comes along.

D He’s pleased that he’s not disturbed by any noise.


5. What would a visitor from the 19th century say if they saw the windmill now?


A It’s great that they’ve kept the corn store as it was. The horses used to love coming

there.

B The sails are a lot smaller than they used to be. I suppose that’s for safety reasons.

C It’s still in the same condition as before. The owners never looked after it then, either.

D You can still see the windmill from miles away. Of course, there weren’t all these

buildings around it then, as a busy road going past.


Task 2.

Read the text and mark statements 612 below as T (true) or F (false).


On 2 November 1982, the British public turned on their television sets for the arrival of the nation’s fourth TV station, called Channel 4. They were greeted by the smiling face of local TV news presenter Richard Whiteley, who welcomed them with the words: ‘As the countdown to a new channel ends, a brand new countdown begins.’ And with this sentence, the words and numbers game show ‘Countdown’ was launched.


The rules of this new game show were as follows: two contestants faced each other over several

rounds of games with letters and with numbers. Finally, there was the Conundrum round, where

contestants had to work out the nineletter anagram. At the end of the show, the contestant with the highest score won and was invited back the next day to face a new challenger.


However, despite the simplicity of the rules, those who watched the early editions of the 30minute show, which was on five days a week, could hardly have imagined that it would last any longer than the original seven weeks that had been planned for it. The first contestants and guests were not exactly the most exciting people on television.


But luckily for ‘Countdown’, there were enough old people, university students and other people with nothing much to do each afternoon to keep the show alive. When the show began, Carol Vordermanwon over fans with her amazing mathematical abilities. ’Countdown’ made a celebrity out of Carol, and these days she’s a familiar face on British TV. Despite her fame, Carol still loyally turned up on ‘Countdown’ each day to turn over the letters and show the contestants how to solve the numbers game until she retired in 2008.


Yes, that is correct – nearly 30 years since it began, ‘Countdown’ continues to keep its audience’s brains working every afternoon. In fact, on 3 January 2006, it celebrated its 4,000th show. Other signs of its success include the increase in the length of each programme to 45 minutes, the addition of a show on Saturdays and the number of British celebrities who have made an appearance.


6. ‘Countdown’ was the first programme ever shown on Channel 4. ……………

7. Every day two new contestants compete to become ‘Countdown’ champion. ……………

8. Originally only 35 programmes of ‘Countdown’ were planned. ……………

9. The early shows were popular with working people. ……………

10. Carol Vorderman is no longer involved with the show. ……………

11. These days ‘Countdown’ is on for four and a half hours every week. ……………

12. More and more famous people like turning up on the programme. ……………
