A. Andy has a terrible singing voice. However he likes to sing and when he sings he is usually very loud and out of tune. Liz thinks that he cannot hear his own voice properly. She assumes that Andy actually believes he has a marvelous voice and anyone who happens to hear one of his beautiful performances is simply lucky. Certainly nobody has ever suspected Andy of being faint hearted or shy.
B. What starts the “terrible two” syndrome on a child’s second birthday? During the first year and 364 days they are smiling, cooing and are sweet as can be. The next
■ day they become mini gangsters — screaming, biting, hair pulling and scratching! I am not sure but many psychologists believe that it is because they lack needed language skills and are angry because they can’t communicate.
C. My sister is a really happy soul and everybody loves her. She is often in a good mood and rarely angry — but she does cry a lot! If she watches a film with a really sad ending it makes her cry. What is more surprising is that is she sees a film with a really happy ending — the chances are that we will still see wet cheeks. Even hearing our baby brother singing one of his nursery rhymes will set her off!
D. We live in a village two miles away from Brighton. There is a good bus service in terms of lots of buses available that generally arrive on time. The problem is that few of them go direct to our village. Instead they make detours down to the Marina and up various residential roads making dozens of stops before reaching our village. What should take 5 minutes sometimes takes almost half an hour.
E. In the past, the smallest things made him angry — he was always shouting and raging. Shop assistants, traffic lights, the TV news — almost anything could make him erupt! Cynthia’s suggestion that he put a pound in a jar each time he got angry proved helpful. Now, sometimes, he even begins to laugh the moment he notices he is angry. When the jar is full he’s promised to treat Cynthia to a meal.
F. Susie loves Rags — her cheerful, faithful and furry companion. She takes him walking every morning and evening and if she cycles to her friend’s house, Rags is invited to run along behind. She never forgets his birthday and is always buying him

special toys and tasty treats. I’ll never forget how sad she was when Rags went missing for a week. She cried every day he was away.
G. Robert Long and Arthur Short are work colleagues and they have known each other since school days. But they often make people laugh when first introduced since Robert Long, could easily get a part in a stage production of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Arthur Short, meanwhile, would not look out of place in a pro Basket Ball team although he is useless at the game.

How It Was
Every school holiday we worked on the farms. Often it was pea picking but we also harvested runner beans, potatoes, black currents and strawberries — each in their season. Sometimes we travelled quite a distance to work. The incredible thing, looking back on it, was that our parents never seemed to worry about us. Sure enough there were occasional tales of terrible accidents or of children being attacked or kidnapped — but no one thought about such things then.
We would disappear early, on our bikes, and not return until dark. Just the thought of letting my own kids do the same today gives me kittens. But back then, that’s how it was. All the harvesting was paid for by the bag or the box. The faster you worked, the more you earned. In one 5 week season I earned about £400. That was seriously good money in the 1970s — probably the same as my Dad earned. And we knew how to spend. We were always treating ourselves to something. But usually the aim was to pay for a holiday before school started again. Of course we often had family holidays when we were younger. But we kids also took our own holidays. Usually it was camping but my focus was beach holidays. Wales was my favourite locations. Again I still can’t imagine how our parents were brave enough to let us go. I can only assume they were not worried: That and the fact that as children they had their own adventures. Both my parents were small children during the war and were evacuated from London to be safe from Hitler’s bombs. They went in the clothes they were wearing plus a small suitcase — sent to unknown (in advance) villages and to the care of strangers. My teenage beach holidays probably seemed a stroll in the park to them and they took our safety for granted.
Nowadays there seems to be a climate of fear around my generation, concerning the safety of our children. Has the world really changed so much? May be it’s just that the media makes us think more about the horrible things that do happen?
Mind you — there was one close shave when I was a kid. It was on one of our Welsh camping holidays. We would have been 15 at the time. I fell asleep on a floating lilo and got swept out to sea. I was only asleep for second and at first was not worried. I began to swim steadily pushing the lilo back to the beach — but after 10 minutes, to my horror, I was no closer to shore. In a panic I jettisoned the lilo so I could swim properly and then swam with all my strength. After another 10 minutes still I made no progress. Then completely irrationally I started worrying about sharks. I knew that there are no dangerous sharks there but just the thought paralyzed me. I told myself not to panic. The sea was really calm and I knew that the tide had to change at some point. I also knew my friends on the beach would call the -coastguard. The shore seemed miles away, exhaustion was kicking in and I realized also that I was cold. Shark fins began to circle in my imagination. I was in despair. You hear about accidents and drowning at sea but never imagine that it’s going to be you.
My rescue was sharp and sudden. Hands on my wrists and ankles and I was swung into the boat. I was absolutely fine when I got back to shore. I am ashamed to say I lied about my age to prevent my parents finding out about it all.
12 | The parents didn’t seem to worry about the narrator and his/her friends as
1) the farm was not far from where the children lived.
2) farm work was part of a regular school summer camp.
3) there were no obvious cases of child abuse in the region.
4) some parents worked on the same farm.
13 The expression “gives me kittens” in the second paragraph means
1) amuses me.
2) captivates me.
3) fascinates me.
4) scares me.
14 | The payment for the farm work the children got depended on
1) the number of hours spent on the farm.
2) the type of seasonal harvest.
3) the speed at which they moved.
4) the amount of harvested berries or vegetables.
15 | The children earned money mainly to
1) afford tasty treats for themselves and friends.
2) provide for their independent holidays.
3) help the family budget.
4) buy camping equipment.
16 | The narrator thought his parents’ evacuation
1) was like a stroll in the park.
2) helped them to deal with strangers.
3) helped them to be calm about safety issues.
4) was a source of serious stress.
17 I The narrator thinks his generation is probably more fearful because
1) the media deliberately highlights awful stories.
2) they didn’t experience the war.
3) there are more unstable people around.
4) their childhood was too safe and trouble free.
181 The narrator has additional problems during his accident in the sea because
1) he wasn’t a good swimmer.
2) the thought of sharks terrified him.
3) the tide was so strong.
4) there was no coast guard around.

Tourism in Wales
“Snowdonia for All” is a project which aims to encourage disadvantaged
people to visit Snowdonia and have an and relaxing time. The
project is the outcome of cooperation between the National Park Consultation Group and various environmental groups.
All of these organisations have been involved in the
walking paths across the beautiful northern Welsh countryside.
The area has witnessed a lot of development in recent years while at the same time seeking to maintain the essential character and atmosphere of this beautiful park.
And in fact it is the Welsh National Assembly. rather than the
Westminster that has been made responsible for drawing
together a number of difficult issues.
For example local politicians do want to see a big increase in the number

the quiet beauty of the landscape.
31 Also there is the ongoing commitment to provide more jobs,
those connected to tourism. But achieving solid economic growth and preserving an ancient landscape is never easy.
