Read the passage and do the task that follows.

Every four or ten years, something happens to the weather system. Everything changes, and scientists don’t understand why.

People call this “El Nino”. It usually happens at Christmas time and El Nino is the Spanish name for the baby Jesus.

The El Nino that started in 1982 was different from the other recent ones. It caused huge changes in the ocean currents. It caused floods in some areas and droughts in others. There were terrible windstorms and huge ocean waves swept houses into the sea. It did billions of dollars’ worth of damage. Thousands of people lost their lives and thousands of others were left homeless.

In 1983 the winds, ocean currents and pressure areas started to become normal again. Scientists throughout the world are using satellites and research boats to observe the atmosphere and the ocean. It is a very complicated problem, but if the scientists of the world work together, they should be able to find out the causes of El Nino. Then they will be able to predict what will happen and work to prevent a repeat of the death and destruction of 1982-1983.

    1. How often does El Nino happen?
      1. every four years. B. every ten years.

C. every fourteen years. D. every four or ten years.

Our family live in the suburb of HCM City, not far from the central city. It’s about 30 kilometres to the South.

Last week my parents, my brothers and sisters paid a visit to my grandparents in the country and I stayed at home alone. I was in the habit of getting up very early in the morning. As usual, after going to the market to buy some necessary things, I came back home to start doing the housework: cleaning the

floor, making the bed, making coffee and preparing lunch. The house in no time was so lean and tidy that it seemed bigger and larger. I worked from 7.00 a.m to 9.00 a.m. I felt so tired that I had to stop work for a rest. After 15 minutes of relaxation, I started working again.

No sooner had I taken the teapot from the cupboard than suddenly I felt so something burning downstairs. I got such an embarrassment and fright that I dropped the teapot while I was hurrying downstairs. To my horror and surprise the kettle on the electric stove was burning as red a s fire. I was in such an embarrassing state that I was quite at a loss. An idea flashed through my mind: I rushed to the switchboard to cut off the electric power. The house suddenly grew as dark as pitch. In the pitch-dark kitchen, the little turned so dazzling red that it looked just like a hot burning sun on a stifling summer afternoon!

Read the passage and do the task that follows.

Solar energy is a long lasting source of energy which can be used almost anywhere. To generate solar energy, we only need solar cells and the sun! Solar cells can easily be installed on house roofs, so no new space is needed and each user can quietly generate their own energy. Compared to other renewable sources, they also possess many advantages: wind and water power relies on turbines which are noisy, expensive and easy to break down. Solar cells are totally silent and non-polluting. As they have no moving parts, they require little maintenance and have a long lifetime.

However, solar energy also has some disadvantages. We can only generate solar energy during daytime because the system depends on sunlight. Besides, solar cells require large are to work effectively.

The main disadvantage of solar energy is that it

costs about twice as much as traditional sources such as coal, oil, and gas. This is because solar cells are expensive. Scientists are hoping that the costs of solar cells will reduce as more and more people see the advantages of this environmentally friendly source of energy.

    1. What does the passage primarily discuss?
      1. Solar energy as an alternative for fossil energy.
      2. Advantages and disadvantages of solar energy.
      3. Solar energy’s advantages over other sources of energy.
      4. The cost of solar energy.
    2. What does the word “they” in line 5 refer to?
      1. solar cells. B. solar energy users.

C. other renewable resources. D. advantages.

    1. What is NOT mentioned as an advantage of solar cells?
      1. They are non-polluting. B. They operate quietly.

C. They require little maintenance. D. They cost little to produce

    1. Which of the following is NOT a traditional source of energy?
      1. oil. B. gas. C. solar energy. D. coal.
    2. Which of the following is the main disadvantage of solar energy?
      1. It is expensive.
      2. It depends on sunlight.
      3. Solar cells require large areas to operate.
      4. It is unfriendly to the environment.

I have been to many cities, I know and like best is the one Ĩ am describing to you. The name of the city is Dalat. I spent three years attending school there. Dalat is located in the Highlands of Central Vietnam and is about 300 km from HCM City.

It is a very pretty city built on the “Lang Biang” Plateau and is situated in the middle of a valley which is surrounded by rolling hills and a range of high and rugged mountains.

The city is centered to the west of the beautiful Ho Xuan Huong Lake. For the most part, the roads in the area are curved and steep Magnificent villas are scattered on both sides of the roads. We can also find some lovely villas nestled in the pine-woods and others located far up on the mountains and overlooking the city and valley. The beautiful mountains, trees and lakes Dalat resemble a city located somewhere in Switzerland and not belonging to Vietnam.

I think Dalat is a very pretty and enjoyable city. It is a favourite place for tourists and artists. Artists find Dalat ideal for their work. It offers beautiful scenery for their inspiration. Other persons find the beauty and solitude of Dalat inspirational for their writing.

Everybody has his or her own hobby. For me, my favorite hobby is reading books.

My father was not only a write but a researcher as well. He had a great collection of books on many fields: literature, science, art, fiction and non-fiction. After his death, I inherited the most valuable treasure which has been preserved carefully up to now.

As I have a large collection of books of my own now, I usually spend hours reading and thinking about facts described in each kind of books. Sitting comfortably in an arm-chair in library with a book open on my knee, I recall my father who was absorbed in his reading, Chateaubrian and Lalartine. I still hear his sonorous voice reciting rhythmical lines of poems in Kim Van Kieu’s story while his face was radiant with ecstasy and raptures.

Through books I see many countries rise and fall. Kings and Presidents pass before my eyes and I can follow the history of nations. Each book has a story to tell me of remote countries and strange people.

I am greatly indebted to books indeed. For me, a good is not only a true companion but also a well- experienced teacher guiding me through my life. It has the miracle to relieve my suffering and my hardship and reveal to me strange and new horizons.

Reading books broadens my mind and improves my knowledge. Instead of indulging myself in futile entertainments, I am often keen on reading books which are always a source of comfort and relief to me and I am determined to preserve my father’s valuable treasure for my posterity.

In a few words, the reading of books contributes to the moral and intellectual formation of a man’s personality.

Read the passage and do the task that follows.

Thanks to the development of modern technology, the idea of an electronic house is no longer ridiculous. It will be possible to have a house run electronically by computer technology in the near future. Lights can be turned on and off on a regular schedule. Old and sick people can be taken care of at home by computers. Many modern machines contain computer chips, allowing their users to program them. For example, a microwave oven can be “instructed” to cook a certain dish. The housework will be done by the dishwasher, the washing machine and dryer, and so on. Most entertainment equipment will operate with computer technology, too. Some examples are radios, television sets, CD player, etc. These equipment can be set up to electronically go to certain channels or stations, or record specific programs at certain times. Indeed, cars can be started automatically so that on cold winter mornings people can get into a warm vehicle to drive to work. In short, computers will be widely used from operating the household equipment to entertaining people.

    1. What did people use to think about the idea of an electronic house?
      1. clear. B. new. C. silly. D. clever.
    2. You can program a/an to make a dish.
      1. oven. B. washing machine.

C. dryer. D. none of the above.

    1. Most entertainment equipment is operated by
      1. certain channels. B. specific records.

C. computer technology. D. instructions of a microwave oven.

    1. A computer can help the house automatically.
      1. operate. B. entertain. C. protect. D. A and B.
    2. What can be electronically controlled in the house?
      1. kitchen appliances. B. entertainment equipment.

C. cars and other vehicles. D. all of the above.

I like to go shopping at a supermarket because of the following reasons:

The supermarket is large, comfortable and conveniently-located. It takes me only a few minutes to walk there from my house. I usually don’t have much time for shopping, so I have to buy things according to a plan, or from a shopping list. At this supermarket I can buy exactly what I need very quickly because

everything is place on open shelves. All I have to do is (do) choose whatever I want and take it to the check-out counter.

Apart from that, I don’t have to bargain over prices before buying, yet I’m never afraid of being overcharged for anything. Goods are sold at fixed prices and the supermarket guarantees the things we buy. Should the items become faulty, the supermarket will either have them replaced or repaired for free.

Read the passage and do the task that follows.

English was first written down in the 6th century. At that time, writers had to use the twenty-three letters of the Latin alphabet to write down what they heard. Because English has sounds that do not exist in Latin, they added letters to represent the forty-four sounds of English. This resulted in some irregular spelling. After the Norman invasion of England in 1066, French became the language spoken by the king and other people in positions of power and influence. Many French words were introduced and the spelling of many English words changed to follow French patterns. The result was a rich and irregular mix of spellings.

The printing press was invented in the 15th century. Many early printers of English texts spoke other first languages, especially Dutch. They often paid little attention to how English words were spelled. Sometimes technical decisions were made to give columns of print straight edges. To do this, letters were taken off the ends of words and sometimes added to words. With time, people became used to seeing words spelled in the same way. Fixed spellings were therefore created by the printers’ decisions. Spoken English, however, was not fixed. It continued to change, as it still does. It is no wonder that English spelling seems irregular. Words such as although, through and cough, for example, all have the same spelling at the end, but are pronounced differently. Words such as feet, meat and seize, on the other hand, are spelled differently but have the same sound in the middle.

    1. When was English first written down?
      1. in the 10th century. B. in the 6th century.

C. in the 15th century. D. in the 16th century.

    1. Which of the following statements is NOT true?
      1. The Latin alphabet has twenty three letters.

A library is an ocean of all kind information; their boundaries continue to extend with numerous contributions of the endless streams of knowledge. Thus, it has a peculiar fascination for scholars, and all people who are thirsty for knowledge.

The usefulness of libraries in the spread of knowledge has been proved. Life is so brief and the field of knowledge is so extensive that even the most avid reader can never expect to absorb it all. People who have a love for knowledge, therefore, try to master only a small fraction of it. Even this requires reading of hundreds of books, expensive and cheap, old and new. But just some of those are able to buy all the books on their interest. It is therefore necessary for them to visit a good library.
