Having a best friend to confide in can bring a positive effect on our emotional health. An evening out
with the closest friend may be the best guarantee of a good time. In fact, our best friend can prevent us
from developing serious psychological problems such as depression and anxiety.
Best friendship evolves with time – we cannot go out and pick our best friend. We become friends with
people who share common interests – at school or through hobbies, for example.
Best friends have usually known each other for years and stuck together through good and bad times.
If you haven’t got one, perhaps you are being too distant from people, or focusing too much on your work.

a. give us a healthy life

Last year I went to Nepal for three months to work in a hospital. I think it’s important to see as much
of a country as you can, but it is difficult to travel around Nepal. The hospital let me have a few days’
holiday, so I decided to go into the jungle and I asked a Nepalese guide, Kamal Rai, to go with me.
We started preparing for the trip at six in the morning, and left camp with two elephants carrying our
equipment. It was hot but Kamal made me wear shoes and trousers to protect me from snakes. In the
jungle there was a lot of wildlife, but we were trying to find big cats, especially tigers. We climbed onto the
elephants’ backs to get better view, but it is unusual to find tigers in the afternoon because they sleep in
the heat of the day.
Then, in the distance, we saw a tiger, and Kamal told me to be very quiet. We crept nearer and found
a dead deer, still bleeding. This was the tiger’s lunch! Suddenly I started to feel very frightened.
We heard the tiger a second before we saw it. It jumped out like a flash of lightning, five hundred kilos
plus and four meters long. I looked into its eyes and face, and saw right down the animal’s throat. It
grabbed Kamal’s leg between its teeth, but I managed to pull Kamal away. One of our elephants ran at

the tiger and made it go back into the grass, so we quickly escaped to let the tiger eat its lunch. That night
it was impossible to sleep!

A YEAR WITH OVERSEAS VOLUNTEERS
I was with Overseas Volunteers (OV) for a year after leaving university, and I was sent to an
isolated village in Chad, about 500 km from the capital N’Djamena. Coming from’ a rich country, I got
quite a shock as conditions were much harder than I had expected. But after a few days I soon got used
to living there. The people were always very friendly and helpful, and soon I began to appreciate how
beautiful the countryside was.
One of my jobs was to supply the village with water. The well was a long walk away. And the
women used to spend a long time every day carrying heavy pots backwards and forwards. So I contacted
organization and arranged to have some pipes delivered. We built a simple pipeline and a pump, and it
worked first time. It wasn’t perfect – there were a few leaks, but it made a great difference to the villagers,
who had never had running water before. And not only did we have running water, but in the evenings it
was hot, because the pipe had been lying in the sun all day. All in all, I think .my time with OV was a good
experience. Although it was not well-paid, it was well worth doing, and I would recommend it to anyone
who was considering working for a charity.

a. has been working for OV for a year
b. is living in the capital N’Djamena

The traditional definition of literacy is considered to be the ability to read and write, or the ability to
use language to, read, write, listen, and speak. In modern contexts, the word refers to reading and writing
at a level (31) _____ for communication, or at a level that lets one understand and communicate ideas in
a literate society,’ so as to take (32) _______ in that society. The United Nations, Educational, Scientific
and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has drafted the following definition: “Literacy is the ability to identify,
understand, interpret, create, communicate and compute, using printed and written ‘materials (33)
_______ with varying contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning to enable an Individual to
achieve his or her goals, to develop his, or her (34) _______ and potential, and to participate fully in the

is made on the (35) _______ that literate people can be trained less expensively than illiterate people,
generally have a higher socio-economic (36) _______ and enjoy better health and employment
prospects. Policy makers also argue that literacy increases job opportunities and access to higher
education. In Kerala, India, for example, female and child mortality rates declined (37) _______ in the
1960s, when girls who were educated in the education reforms after 1948 began to raise families. Recent

A literate population is a necessity for any nation wishing to take advantage of modern technological
growth. For .instance, research has shown a direct relationship between literacy among women and
improved health’ and child care in the family. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO) has long supported the concept that education must be considered an ongoing
process.

Adult education has long been important in Europe, where formal programs began in the 18th
century. In Britain, concern for the education of poor and working-class people resulted in the growth of
adult education programs, such as the evening school and the, Mechanic’s Institute, to expand education
opportunities for all people: ,After the Russian Revolution, the Russian government virtually eliminated
illiteracy through the establishment of various institutions and extension classes for adults.
In other areas of the world, adult education movements are of a more recent origin. In 1960, Egypt
established a ‘schools for the people’ system designed to educate the adult population. In the 1970s,
countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America began to increase opportunities for adult education. Innovative
programs involving the mass media are being used in many countries. Tanzania, for example, has used
mass education techniques and the radio to organize national education programs in health, nutrition, and
citizenship. In the 1980s, international educational exchange programs grew in popularity in the United
States and many other countries.

THE OLYMPIC GAMES
During the Olympic games, people from all over the world come together
in peace and friendship. Some of these people compete for medals. Several million people attend the
games, and millions of other people watch them on television.
Why do we have the Olympic games? How did they begin? The first Olympic Games that we have
records of were in Greece in 776 B.C. The games lasted one day. The only event in the first thirteen
Olympic Games was a race. Men ran the length of the stadium (about 192 meters). Then, longer running
races were added. Through the years, a few other kinds of events, like the long jump, were also added.

During this time, the games were for men only, and women could not even watch them. In the year 393, a
Roman emperor ended the Olympic Games because the quality of the games became very low. The
Olympics did not take place again for 1500 years!
In 1894, Pierre de Courbertin of France helped form the International Olympic Committee, and the
modern Olympic Games began. In 1896 the games were held again in Athens, Greece. The Greeks built
a new stadium for the competition. Three hundred and eleven athletes from thirteen countries competed
in many events. The winners became national heroes.
After 1896, the games were held every four years during the summer in different cities around the
world. In 1900, the Olympics were in Paris, France, and women competed for the first time. In 1908, in
London, England, the first gold medals were given to winning athletes. Before that time, the winners
received only silver and bronze medals.
The Olympic flag was first introduced in 1920 in Antwerp, Belgium. The flag has five rings on it. The
rings represent the continents of Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America. Each ring

is a different colorblue, yellow, black, green, or red – because the flag of each of the countries that
compete in the games has at least one of these colors in it.
The Olympic Winter Games began in 1924 in Chamois, France. Athletes
competed in winter events such as skiing, ice skating, and ice hockey. Today, the Winter Games take
place every four years. The Summer Games also take place every four years, but not. in the same year
as the winter events. Both the Summer Games and the Winter Games must have at least fifteen events,
and they cannot last more than sixteen days.
Until recently, Olympic competitors could not be professional athletes. All of the athletes in the
Olympic Games were amateurs. Today, however, many of the Olympic athletes are professionals who
play their sports for money during the year. Some people disagree with this idea. They believe that the
Olympic Games are for amateur athletes, not paid professionals. Other people think that anyone can play
in the Olympic Games. No matter who the athletes are, millions of people throughout the world enjoy
watching the greatest athletic competitions, the Summer games and the Winter Games of the Olympics.

In Britain, concern for the education of poor and working-class people resulted in the growth ofadult education programs, such as the evening school and the, Mechanic’s Institute, to expand educationopportunities for all people :, After the Russian Revolution, the Russian government virtually eliminatedilliteracy through the establishment of various institutions and extension classes for adults. In other areas of the world, adult education movements are of a more recent origin. In 1960, Egyptestablished a ‘ schools for the people ‘ system designed to educate the adult population. In the 1970 s, countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America began to increase opportunities for adult education. Innovativeprograms involving the mass truyền thông are being used in many countries. Tanzania, for example, has usedmass education techniques and the radio to organize national education programs in health, nutrition, andcitizenship. In the 1980 s, international educational exchange programs grew in popularity in the UnitedStates and many other countries. 41. What does this passage mainly discuss ? a. National educationb.

The first Olympic Games that we haverecords of were in Greece in 776 B.C. The games lasted one day. The only sự kiện in the first thirteenOlympic Games was a race. Men ran the length of the stadium ( about 192 meters ). Then, longer runningraces were added. Through the years, a few other kinds of events, like the long jump, were also added. During this time, the games were for men only, and women could not even watch them. In the year 393, aRoman emperor ended the Olympic Games because the quality of the games became very low. TheOlympics did not take place again for 1500 years ! In 1894, Pierre de Courbertin of France helped form the International Olympic Committee, and themodern Olympic Games began. In 1896 the games were held again in Athens, Greece. The Greeks builta new stadium for the competition. Three hundred and eleven athletes from thirteen countries competedin many events. The winners became national heroes. After 1896, the games were held every four years during the summer in different cities around theworld. In 1900, the Olympics were in Paris, France, and women competed for the first time. In 1908, inLondon, England, the first gold medals were given to winning athletes. Before that time, the winnersreceived only silver and bronze medals. The Olympic flag was first introduced in 1920 in Antwerp, Belgium. The flag has five rings on it. Therings represent the continents of Africa, Asia, nước Australia, Europe, and North and South America. Each ringis a different colorblue, yellow, black, green, or red – because the flag of each of the countries thatcompete in the games has at least one of these colors in it.
