VII..Reading. Match the texts (A-G) to a description (1-8). There is one description that you do not need to use.
Lucky escape Ordering in

Good way to meet A new way to buy
Growing in popularity Too much choice
When you are tired and don’t want to cook, just pick up the phone. Restaurants are expensive and take some time and effort to reach if you don’t live in the centre of town. Ordering food for home delivery is cheap and these days there is a huge choice. Indian and Chinese are the most popular but I prefer to get in a pizza.
A school group on a skiing holiday to Italy narrowly avoided disaster when their coach left the road and fell eighty meters into a valley. These slowed down the falling coach and because of the fresh new snow the vehicle landed quite softly. Amazingly no one was injured.
A teenager from London is making news around the world. On his recent holiday in Australia he sat off without his mobile phone. Experts are amazed that he is still alive, after walking for fourteen days, surviving extreme temperatures and living off the land. However, a lot of Australians are unhappy with him. The rescue cost is estimated at more than 100.000 dollars.
You can buy almost anything, new or second hand, on the internet. On one site you can offer the price you want to pay for something. Whoever offers the highest price can buy that item. Recently I made the highest offer for a nearly new pair of skis. However, I only paid half of what they would have cost new in a shop.
Making new friends on the internet makes so much sense. You can see someone’s photo and read if they share your interests and opinions. The important thing is you can spend time getting to know people who are attractive to you and looking for the same things in life that you are. Still, for personal safety, most sites recommend that in person you meet initially in a public place like a café or a gallery.
I like eating out but some restaurants have huge menus. And usually every item sounds mouth watering. The trouble is I like to read about everything on offer and sometimes waiters wait for me rather than on me! The other issue is how they can offer so much whilst maintaining quality? I’d rather take one of five options knowing that each one was brilliant.
“Facebook” is a social networking website has 250 million members and despite lots of criticism by employers, governments and media, continues to attract thousands of new users daily. In spite of claims of concerns about privacy, safety and wasting time at work , “Facebook” is one of the most rapidly establishing phenomena of recent years.
VIII..Writing. Read the extract from your English pen-friend’s email.
Tell him/her about your family,
Ask three questions about his/her plans for the holidays (100-140) words.
