Read the following passage and answer the questions by choosing one answer A, B, C or D only. Long-haul flights have just got longer, with a non-stop flight from Singapore to New York now in operation. But 18 hours in the air creates its own challenges. A lot of preparation goes into the ultra long-haul flight. The air craft is specifically designed for the journey with more space and extensive entertainment services. The flight crews are also specially trained. The seasoned traveler is also more aware of the health risks associated with a flight that covers as much as 16.600 km (10.310 miles) in distance. Exposure to lower oxygen levels for up to 18, maybe 20, hours is abnormal for the human body. With deep vein thrombosis (DVT) the problem really starts occurring after 12 hours (in-flight). This could lead to an increase in heart attack. Doctors believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to in-flight health. Passengers on ultra long-range flights need to be provided with flight socks and, if necessary, tablets for thinning the blood. It is not just the health and vitality of the passenger that is at stake on a flight of this length, but also that of the flight crew. “They give us training on fatigue management and how to adjust to the local time in New York and to exercise, as well as take care of our diet and eat lightly in-flight,” says Linda Wu, a stewardess on Singapore Airlines. However, passengers are trading in health concerns for convenience. An extra-long flight means passengers do not need to break up their journey and change planes. “They like to board once, de-plane once. It is saving time,” says James Williams from Singapore Airlines. “From Los Angeles to Singapore, passengers are saving two and a half hours. And to New York passengers are saving up to four hours in flying time.” Thai Airways is also launching a non-stop service to New York from Bangkok next June to compete with Singapore Airlines. It is planning a similar service to Chicago, Cathay Pacific, Continental, Qantas and Emirates Airlines also offer flights that are more than 14 hours in duration. However, there is still a question of whether longer non-stop flight will become popular. “They will certainly have a role in the future of aviation, there is no doubt about it. People will prefer to fly non-stop if it is available,” says Chris Johnson, an airline analyst. “But we are reaching the limits. These markets are at the very margin of aviation. Most airlines still fly in the eight to 12-hour sector. This is still where the biggest volume in traffic is.” Avery believes that geography will determine the demand for the ultra long-haul flight and that worldwide appeal for this type of flight is unlikely. “Asia is where the demand is for the ultra long-haul flight. They are connecting Asian cities to the U.S. East Coast, which is the big market,” he explains. “The routes that connect most places that European business travelers go do not need a capacity and endurance to fly 18 hours – this is the same for U.S. carriers.” 1. Why are longer flights potentially harmful to passengers and crew? A. Because there isn’t as much oxygen in the air. B. People will get bored more easily. C. Long periods of inactivity will damage their bones. 2. What are flight socks? A. Special socks to keep the plane free of harmful bacteria B. One of the preventive measures planned by airlines C. Socks that stop your blood getting too thin 3
  4. 3. Which of the following methods of countering the health problems caused by long flight is NOT mentioned? A. How best to cope with jet lag B. Advice on food consumption during a flight C. Advice on drinking alcohol 4. What are the advantages of longer flights? A. There are less problems with jet lag. B. Passengers save time. C. Passengers get a good break between flights. 5. Where is the market for longer flights expected to develop? A. Between Europe and America B. Between Asia and America C. Between Asia and Europe 6. What is closest in meaning to “long-haul flight”? A. A flight that is non-stop B. A flight that lasts longer than 12 hours C. A flight that covers a significant distance 7. What opinion on the perspective of extra-long flights does the author most likely support? A. A great demand for extra-long flights will be developed. B. Geographical factor will affect the need for extra-long flights. C. Extra-long flights will lose its attraction very soon. III. You are going to read an article about ice skating. Choose the most suitable heading from the list A-I for each part (1-8) of the article. There is one extra heading which you do not need to use. A Preparing yourself B The benefits of the sport C When things go wrong D Different skating techniques E A change in approach F The right attitude G Moving off H Holding your body correctly I How it all started 1. ______________ Ice skating has a history of thousands of years. Archaeologists have discovered skates made from animal bone. It seems that bone skates were used until the introduction of iron into Scandinavia about the year 200 AD. Among the Scandinavian upper classes, skating was seen as an essential skill. 2. ______________ In the early twentieth century, skating was stylish and reserved, but at the 1924 Winter Olympics, 11-year-old Sonja Henie introduced a more athletics attitude which inspired a new wave of popularity. Nowadays art and athletics are combined and modern skating is both graceful and physically demanding. 3. ________________ For the beginner, balance and control are all important and speed can only increase with proficiency. The position of your body plays a great part in balance. Legs slightly bowed and the knees bent keep the body weight centred; in effect the body leans slightly forward in this position. For skating, probably more than any other sport or recreation, relaxation is vital. 4. ________________ For the starting position, the heels should almost be touching and the feet should be turned outwards. While pushing toward with the back foot, you make a very small movement with the 4
  5. other foot. Fairly easy, isn’t it? If you can keep this up for a while, you can then slowly increase the length of your movements as you gain experience. 5. ________________ Knowing how to fall must be learnt among the skater’s first skills. Even the best of the professionals fall. In order to fall without injury, you should be as relaxed as possible. In this way the shock of hitting the ice is lessened. To get up, use your hands to get into a kneeling position, then stand. 6. _______________ Once you have learnt to move on the ice with confidence, there are various styles to be practiced – figure skating, free style, distance, speed, skating in pairs, and so on – but the basis of them all, and by far the best approach, is first to learn figure skating and then elementary freestyle. With proper guidance available at most of the ice rinks, the basic figures can soon be learnt and the turns, jumps, and spins of elementary free style will soon follow. 7. _______________ If you look at any good or professional skater, you will see how relaxed they are and how easily they move. To achieve this, an exercise programme should be regularly practiced. It can be dangerous to skate with a stiff body and warm up exercises should at least include those for the legs, back and shoulders, with special emphasis on the ankles and the knees. After a long or intense session, the same exercises should be used afterwards to avoid stiffness. 8. _______________ Skating improves balance, co-ordination, relaxation and movement. It improves heart and lung activity and generally strengthens the body. Combined with swimming or jogging, it provides a great programme for all-round health and fitness. IV. Read the passage and fill in each gap with ONE suitable word. Students frequently complain (1) ………… studying for hours on (2) ………..… and then not doing well in their final exams. Many factors can (3) …………. in poor performances: (4) ………… illness or a personal problem. Getting high grades can also put a terrible strain on students (5) ……… don't want to let their parents down. Can students' knowledge be judged by a (6) ………. exam? Certainly not! If we want to be fair, students ought to be (7) ………… on a regular basic. So does that mean more exams? Yes, but (8) ………. many written ones. In many countries, students do not have to take written exams (9) ………… they don't want to, they are (10) ………………… to take oral ones instead. This seems to be a fairer way of assessing understanding, not just testing it. D. WRITING I. Finish each of the following sentences in such a way that it is as similar as possible in meaning to the original sentence. Use the word given and other words as necessary. Do not change the form of the given word. 1. June was sure there was no mistake in her homework. (NOTHING) ……………………………………………………………………………………… 2. Although the weather changed, the picnic went ahead as planned. (CHANGE) ……………………………………………………………………………………… 3. I advise you to think carefully before accepting William's offer. (BETTER) ……………………………………………………………………………………… 4. Apparently, Sheila wasn't listening to me. (APPEAR) ……………………………………………………………………………………… 5. Margaret was offered a place on the course but couldn't accept because she was ill. (TURN) ……………………………………………………………………………………… II.

Do you agree or disagree? State the reasons for your answer. ==== The End ==== 5
