In the last two years, hobbies have become more important than ever as people looked for ways to entertain during quarantines, and ways to (26) __________ with others even while isolated because of the pandemic. With fast developments in information technology, young people nowadays often choose activities they can do on their portable devices with video games being their No. 1 choice of (27) __________. Lots of teenage girls and boys enjoy gaming because they can chat with their friends online and play games together. Gaming brings people together as there are communities on Reddit or YouTube for different games. Teenagers also spend a huge amount of time watching YouTube (28) __________ there is so much entertaining content to watch. Whether it’s educational or entertaining, there is (29) __________ shortage of videos to watch on YouTube. Using social media is named as one of the most popular hobbies, too. Young people often spend hours a day scrolling on different platforms, such as TikTok, Instagram or Facebook. Then, you might think that physical activities are being replaced by virtual ones, but that is far from true. Surprisingly, there’s a(n) (30) __________ in the number of young people playing sports, such as tennis, soccer, swimming or dancing. Approximately 65% of Gen Z-ers think it is essential to do physical activities in open and outdoor spaces to maintain mental and physical health.

Some adults think that because teenagers spend so much time online, they probably also shop that way. That isn’t actually true, at least for me and my friends. I buy some things online though, such as pens and notebooks, and I get computer games that way too. It’s very convenient, as I can order exactly what I want. There are no huge crowds of people to put up with either. And online stores don’t have closing times, so it’s perfect for me as a teenager who has lots of hobbies on the weekend. However, I never buy clothes or accessories online, as you can’t try anything on before you buy. Sometimes things look quite different in real life. A yellow jacket might turn out to be white. I like the social aspect of going shopping for clothes. I’d rather spend time with my friends in a shopping mall than sit at home in front of my computer. I also like buying electronic appliances from a local store. If the products have any faults, I can easily take them back to a shop assistant to ask for help. In the US, the best time for people who enjoy shopping at stores is Black Friday – the day after Thanksgiving. It’s typically a day full of special shopping deals and big discounts, and customers spend huge amounts of money. Stores and shopping malls open very early and shoppers often start queuing for bargains hours before the sales actually begin.

 

31. Some people believe that teenagers are likely to shop online. _______

32. One advantage of shopping online is that you can shop 24/7. _______

33. Images of clothes posted online are the same in reality. _______

34. Local stores usually provide better customer service when you want to return faulty appliances.

35. People can buy a lot of products with cheaper prices on Black Friday. _______

 

C.    Read the following passage. Then read sentences (A-F) and choose the one that best fits each gap (36-40). There is ONE extra sentence.

 

My name is Jay and I’m from London. I live with my parents, my brother Phillip and my sister Lily. My sister is a web designer. She has lots of interesting ideas. She’s very creative. (36) ____ If she says she’ll help you with something, she does. You can always count on her. Lily loves spending time on her computer. (37) ____ Right now, she’s writing her weekly blog. Phillip is just one year older than me. He’s not very sociable. (38) ____ My brother can’t live without sports. He’s crazy about basketball and tennis. He’s in the school’s basketball team, too. (39) ____ I prefer staying at home and reading books, magazines, comics, anything! I find reading very relaxing. At the moment, I’m very much into detective stories, but I’m keen on thrillers, too. (40) ____ We often gather on Friday night and play Dungeons & Dragons with some friends. Sometimes, Lily joins us, and she’s really good at it. I think role-playing games are incredibly fun, and they can actually teach you skills you’ll use in the real world.

 

A. Some people think he’s unfriendly, but he’s basically just shy.

B. Both my brother and I like role-playing games.

Audio script:

Listening:

My name is Mandy, and I’m addicted to shopping, especially for clothes. The bad news is that I don’t have much pocket money, so I can’t afford to buy many, except during the sales season. That’s the reason why I love shopping at thrift stores. People can buy clothes and accessories of high quality at a reasonable price there. There are some tips for thrift shopping. First, weekends are the worst time to go thrift shopping. Most people work during the week and only have time to go on the weekends. Therefore, thrift stores are always crowded and the best items have already been picked out. If you can make it, the best days of the week for thrift shopping should be Monday and Wednesday, when new items come out. Second, remember to try on clothing in thrift stores before purchasing. Don’t trust the size on the tag, because clothing sizing is unreliable. Trying on items will ensure that you really like the item and prevent you from having to get back and make a return. While trying on clothes, you can also easily inspect the clothing for any damage, such as holes, missing buttons or stains. Take a close look at everything before you hand over those dollar bills.
