My name is Long and I’m a Vietnamese. I am twenty-four years old. I live in Ho Chi Minh City in the South Vietnam.

I have a big family with six people. I have two sisters and a brother. My sisters are older and my brother is younger than me. My father is a teacher at a secondary school. He has worked for 35 years in

the field and he is my biggest role model in life. My mother is a housewife. She is nice and she is really good at cooking. I love my family so much.

I’m a generous and easy-going person but when it comes to work I’m a competitive perfectionist. I’m also an optimistic and outgoing person so I have many friends and other social relationships. I enjoy reading, writing and doing math. I decided to become a Civil Engineer because I have always been fascinated by bridges, buildings, and skyscrapers. A degree in Civil Engineering enables me to achieve my goals and also gives me an opportunity to make a difference in the community.

Five years from now, I want to become a project manager of a construction project. As a project manager, my primary goals are managing people, set budgets, and making decisions of all kinds. I also want to speak English fluently so I can work with people from different countries.

To many people, smoking is not only a pleasure but also an addiction. They need smoking, depend on it, and can hardly get rid of it. If they do not smoke for hours, they will feel a craving for a cigarette. They often chain-smoke that means they light one cigarette after another. Smoking is often considered anti- social because many people do not like the smell of cigarettes or the sight of the smoker’s stained fingers and of ash-trays full of cigarette-ends. Above all, smoking is harmful to health. In many countries, they forbid to advertise cigarettes and a warning is printed every packet of cigarette that is “Smoking is bad for your health”. Scientists have proved that there is a close link between smoking and lung diseases, such as cough and tuberculosis and the worst of all is a fatal cancer.

As I looked at the photographs taken during my childhood days, it seemed only yesterday that I was a little child.

My childhood was a pleasant one. Being the only child in my family, my grandparents doted on me. As a result, I was a rather mischievous boy. I liked snacks like chocolates, ice-cream and Cadies, but I

hated proper, meals. I can recall how my granny had to run after me, one hand holding a bowl of porridge and the other holding a spoon. I would run faster, shouting noisily as I played with my toy aeroplane.

What a little brat I must have been!

I also remember the time when I mistook the laundry soap for a bar of chocolate and wanted to much it. Luckily, my granny saw it before I took the first bite.

Since I have no brothers or sisters, I would play with my neighbours at times. There was a boy, Thien, whom I looked up to. He was very good at playing marbles and he used to share the marbles he won with me.

Now I am a big boy, my childhood hays have become a beautiful past which is worthy of recollection.

Read the passage and do the task that follows.

Long ago a lot of people thought the moon was a god. Other people thought it was just a light in the sky. And other thought it was a big ball’of cheese!

The telescopes were made. And men saw that the moon was really another world. They wondered what it was like. They dreamed of going there.

On July 20, 1969, that dream came true. Two American men landed on the moon. Their names were Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin. The first thing the men found was that the moon is covered with dust. The dust is so thick that the men left footprints where they walked. Those were the first marks a living thing had ever made on the moon. And they could stay there for years and years. There is no wind or rain to wipe them off.

The two men walked on the moon for hours. They picked up rocks to bring back to earth for study. They dug up dirt to bring back. They set up machines to find out things people wanted to know. Then they climbed back into their moon landing craft.

Next day the landing craft roared as the two men took off from the moon. They joined Michael Collins in the spaceship that waited for them above the moon. Then they were off on their long trip back to earth. Behind them they left the plains and tall mountains of the moon. They left the machines they had set up.

1. Read the passage and do the task that follows.

Mickey Mouse was not Walt Disney’s first successful cartoon creation, but he is certainly his most famous one. It was on a cross-country train trip from New York to California in 1927 that Disney first drew the mouse with the big ears. Supposedly, he took his inspiration from the tame field mice that used to scamper into his old studio in Kansas City. No one is quite sure why he dressed the mouse in the now- familiar shorts with two buttons and gave him the yellow shoes. But we do know that Disney had intended to call him Mortimer until his wife Lilian intervened and christened him Mickey Mouse.

Capitalizing on the interest in Charles Lindbergh, Disney planned Mickey’s debut in the short cartoon Plane Crazy, with Minnie as a co-star. In the third short cartoon, Steamboat Willie, Mickey was whistling and singing through the miracle of the modern soundtrack. By the 1930s, Mickey’s image had circled the globe. He was a superstar at the height of his career.

Although he has received few minor changes throughout his lifetime, most notably the addition of white gloves and the rounder forms of a more childish nobody, he has remained true to his nature since those first cartoons. Mickey is appealing because he is ice. He may get into trouble, but he takes it on the chin with a grin. He is both good-natured and resourceful. Perhaps that was Disney’s own image of himself. Why else would he have insisted on doing Mickey’s voice in all he cartoon for twenty years?

When interviewed, he would say, “There is a lot of the mouse in me”. And that mouse has remained one of the most pervasive images in American popular culture.

  1. With what topic is the passage primarily concerned?
    1. The image of Mickey Mouse. B. The life of Walt Disney.

C. The history of cartoon. D. The definition of American culture.

  1. What distinguished Steam Willie from earlier cartoon?
    1. Better color. B. A sound track.

C. Minnie Mouse as co-star. D. The longer format.

  1. The first image of Mickey Mouse is described as all of following EXCEPT
    1. He was dressed in shorts with two buttons.
    2. He had big ears.
    3. He wore yellow shoes.
    4. He was using white gloves.
  2. The word “pervasive” could best the replaced by
    1. Well-loved. B. Widespread.

C. Often copied. D. Expensive to buy.

  1. The paragraph following the passage most probably discusses
    1. The history of cartoons. B. Other images in popular culture,

C. Walt disney’s childhood. D. The voices of cartoon characters.

I like swimming, it is my favorite sport for I know that it is healthy as well as good chance for one to exercise one’s body.

Last Sunday morning, as the weather was fine, I went to Vung Tau with my family. It took us about two hours by car to arrive at our destination, and I felt very excited about it.

When our car reached the top of the cliff overlooking the Bay, now I admired the golden sand of the long beach, the blue sky and water, and the splendid country surroundings which looked like and artist’s painting.

We put on our bathing-suits and ran into the water. It was a very happy swim for me. We played ball, challenged each other in swimming a certain distance. Of course, I was always beaten by my bigger brothers, but I was satisfied with my good effort. When we felt tired, we play down on the beach to rest and to have some sunbath. At about noon, we returned to our tent and had lunch.

About 3 p.m, we went once more into the water and enjoyed the afternoon bath till 5 p.m. Finally, we got ready to start for home. Everyone was delighted to have spent such a wonderful day.

Everyone sat up expectantly. It was a maths period and all of us waited eagerly for our maths teacher, Mrs. Hanh, to come into the class. She is very popular among us. In fact, she is my favourite teacher.

Mrs. Hanh has short curly hair and wears thick glasses which make her look strict. However, she is actually very approachable and is always ready to lend an ear to our problems. She is motherly and cares very much for us. I remember once when I fell and hurt my knee, Mrs. Hanh helped me to stop the bleeding and took me to the clinic. I was very grateful to her.

I used to dislike maths when I was younger because I found it far too complicated. Mrs. Hanh always makes maths lessons interesting and easy to understand. She is very patient in explaming maths problems tous and always makes sure everyone understands. Under her guidance, my maths has improved by leaps and bounds.

I have grown to love maths and I always score high marks in my maths tests now and it’s all because of my favourite teacher.
