1.) The approach to the methodology of learning and teaching has to be comprehensive, presenting all options in an explicit and transparent way, and avoiding advocacy or dogmatism. It has been our fundamental methodological principle that the methods to be employed in language learning, teaching and research are those considered to be most effective in reaching the objectives agreed in the light of the needs of the individual learners in their social context. Effectiveness is contingent on the motivations and characteristics of the learners as well as the nature of the human and material resources which can be brought into play.

Question: What point is the writer making in this paragraph?

a. Teachers should regularly change their methods.

b. Motivation is worth more than intelligence in learning.

c. There is no single best method for learning.

d. Language can be effectively learned through play.


2. In many ways, Britten’s most ambitious effort is the War Requiem of 1961, a flawed but still impressive work for chorus, soloists, and orchestra. It weaves together the traditional Latin Mass for the Dead with antiwar poems by Wilfrid Owen, a young officer killed in World War 1. The point of War Requiem is how the words of the liturgical text are reinterpreted and often rendered hollow by the realities of death in war. In this work, we see Britten’s prodigal inconsistencies on display. For all its problems, the War Requiem will probably survive as one of our times’ most impassioned indictments of war and its heroic myth.

Question: Which of the following most accurately summarizes the opinion of the author in the text?

a. He questions whether Britten’s work will endure.

b. He finds the weaving together of the Latin Mass and antiwar poems to be quite effective.

c. He admires the War Requiem of Britten but finds it far from perfect.

d. He is critical of Britten’s inconsistencies as observed in the War Requiem.

Read the text and answer the multiple choice question by selecting all the correct responses. More than one response is correct.

1.) When does a hobby or pastime, or whatever you want to call, what you do in your leisure time for rest and relaxation, cease to be a hobby or a pastime and become something a bit more serious, such as something you realize can be turned into financial gain or an obsession that can mess up your life as much as any other addiction? The whole point of them, of course, is that they are done out of personal interest and for pleasure and enjoyment, not for financial gain. Most people’s hobbies turn out to be easy and stress-free pastimes such as collecting things, making things, sports, playing a musical instrument, reading and so on. And so it is claimed- they are good for you, too. Pursuing a hobby can have calming and helpful beneficial effects. For a start, it can take your mind off your problems, and the more interests you have, the more you enjoy life. One way in which the subject becomes a little bit serious is when you are applying for a job and writing out your curriculum vitae, or resume. There’s invariably a section which asks what your outside interests are, and because getting a job is a serious business, and you want to impress your prospective employers, you might find yourself claiming that you like nothing better at weekends than being flown by helicopter to the top of the Alps and find themselves doing this because they feel that applying for a job and corning across well at interview is a test of character and being an aficionado of extreme sports is a lot cooler than stamp collecting. But why turn what is supposed to be calming and relaxing into a cause for anxiety?

Question: Which of the following statements are true about hobbies and pastimes, according to the text?

a. Many people do extreme sports because it’s cool.

b. Most of the people’s hobbies are simple and undemanding.

c. Your leisure time activities reveal your true character.

d. They are not pursued economic profit.

e. They are often used as therapy.

2. Before the Howard invented his system for classifying clouds, they had simply been described by their shape and color as each person saw them: they were too changeable and moved too quickly for anyone to think they could be classified in any useful way. Howard had been interested in clouds and meteorology in general ever since he was a small boy, and for thirty years kept a record of his meteorological observations. In 1802-1803, he produced a paper in which he named the clouds, or to be more precise, classified them, claiming that it was possible to identify several simple categories within the various and complex cloud forms. As was standard practice for the classification of plant and animal species, they were given Latin names, which meant that the system could be understood throughout Europe. Howard believed that all clouds belonged to three distinct groups: Cumulus, stratus, and cirrus. He added a fourth category, nimbus to describe a cloud in the act of condensation into rain, hail or snow. It is by observing how clouds change color and shape that weather can be predicted, and as long as the first three types of cloud keep their normal shape there won’t be any rain. This system came to be used across adopted, with some additions, as the international standard, but that was not his only contribution to meteorology. He wrote papers on barometers and theories of rain and what is probably the first textbooks on the weather. He can also be considered to be the father of what is now called “urban climatology”. Howard had realized that cities could significantly alter meteorological elements. One of these he called “city fog.” Nowadays we call it “smog” a  combination of smoke and fog.
