. This type of theft is called pick-pocketing. 
	Perhaps an even more personal kind of theft is known as housebreaking, or burglary. After such an intrusion, the victims often report a feeling of violation. They seldom (3) . the comfort and security level they used to have in their home. They constantly feel like they are being watched; they feel that if they go out, the burglars will again come in. They feel uncomfortable when they are at home, and they feel uncomfortable when they aren’t at home.
	Burglars get lucky or make their own luck. Sometimes (4) . forget to lock all their windows or doors. Sometimes burglars will break a window, cut through a screen door, or force open a side door.
	Thieves have no shame. They will steal from anyone that they think is vulnerable. Of course, that means the elderly are their frequent victims. Some thieves are very clever; some are very lucky. All of them make an honest person’s life more difficult. It’s too bad that all of them can’t be caught and (5) . into honest people.

Cars became popular as a quick and comfortable way of getting around. This is still true when you will drive along a quiet country road or a modern motorway. As far as getting from one place to another in the city is concerned, it is a different story. Whenever I want to get up anywhere in a hurry, I leave the car at home and go on foot. It often turns out to be much more quicker. I still make the mistake now and again of thinking the car is an efficient means of a transport. The other day my wife was feeling a bit under the weather. She had been having terrible headaches for some long time and she decided she couldn’t take it any more and asked from me to give her a lift to the doctor, whose surgery is in the center part of a town. We live in a suburb in the old quarter of the city and it is twenty minutes away on foot. On the way back, however, it is all up hill and I must to admit it can be exhausting, especially on a hot day. Reluctantly I got the car out of the garage and we set it off, muttering about the wonders of taxis. My heart sank as we hit the first traffic jam - I knew we were beginning a long journey.

SECTION THREE: READING COMPREHENSION
Part 1. Read the following passage, and then choose the correct answers (A, B, C or D). 
Because writing has become so important in our culture, we sometimes think of as more real than speech. A little thought, however, will show why speech is primary and writing secondary to language. Human beings have been writing (as far as we can tell from surviving evidence) for at least 5000 years; but they have been talking for much longer, doubtless ever since there have been human beings.
When writing did develop, it was derived from and represented speech, albeit imperfectly. Even today, there are spoken languages that have no written form. Furthermore, we all learn to talk well before we learn to write; any human child who is not severely handicapped physically or mentally learns to talk: a normal human being cannot be prevented from doing so. On the other hand, it takes a special effort to learn to write; in the past many intelligent and useful members of society did not acquire the skill, and even today may who speak languages with writing systems never learn to read or write, while some who learn the rudiments of those skills so only imperfectly.
To affirm the primacy of speech over writing is not, however, to disparage the latter. One advantage writing has over speech is that it is more permanent and makes possible the records that any civilization must have. Thus, if speaking makes us human, writing makes us civilized.
54. The author of the passage argues that ..
A. writing has become too important in today’s society.
B. speech is more basic to language than writing.
C. everyone who learns to speak must learn to write.
D. all languages should have a written form.
55. According to the passage, writing .
A. represents speech, but not perfectly.
B. is imperfect, but less so than speech.
C. developed from imperfect speech.	
D. is represented perfectly by speech.
56. In the author’s judgment....
A. writing has more advantages than speech.
B. speech is essential but writing has important benefits.
C. speech conveys ideas less accurately than writing does.
D. writing is more real than speech.
57. In order to show that learning to write requires effort, the author gives the example of .
A. people who learn the rudiments of speech	. 	
B. people who speak many languages.
C. intelligent people who couldn’t write.	
D. severely handicapped children.
58. According to the author, one mark of civilized society is that it ....
A. affirms the primacy of speech over writing. 
B. affirms the primacy of writing over speech.
C. teaches its children to speak perfectly.	 
D. keeps written records.
Part 2. Read the text below and think of the word which best fits each space. Use only ONE word in each space.
A recent university research project investigated the attitudes of postgraduate science students (59) .. the learning of English vocabulary. The results were surprising. I’ll mention three of them.
Firstly, most of the students think that (60) .... every word in English has just one meaning. This is, of course, completely contrary to the facts. A glance at any English dictionary will show this. The student will frequently find seven or eight meanings listed (61) ... quite “simple” words.
Why, then, have these students made such a mistake? One reason may be that they are all science students. Scientists try to use words in their subject 62) ... have one meaning, and one meaning only. Another reason, of course, could be the way in which these students were taught. They may have used vocabulary lists when they first (63)  English. On one side of the page is the word in English; on the other side, a single word in the student’s native language.
The second attitude that (64) ... from the findings is equally mistaken. Practically all the students think that every word in English has an exact translational equivalent. Again, this is far from the truth. Sometimes one word in English can only be (65) ... by a phrase in the student’s native language. There are other difficulties in translation which we won’t mention here. Certainly, the idea of one word for one word translation process is completely false. Translation machines, which tried to work on this principle, failed completely.
The third result of the (66) .. showed another error in the students’ thinking. They believe that as soon as they know the meaning of a word, they’re in a position to use it correctly. This is (67) .. for any language but is perhaps particularly false for English. The student has to learn when to use a word as well as to know what it means. Some words in English mean almost the same but they can only be used in certain (68) ... . What then, is the best way to increase one’s vocabulary? This can be answered in three words: observation, imitation and repetition.
Part 3. You are going to read a magazine article. Seven paragraphs have been removed from the article. Choose from the paragraphs A-H the one which fits each gap (69-75). There is one extra paragraph which you do not need to use.
	A. As a result, the impact on the instrumental curriculum and the measures used to assess progress through it will be such that they will need to adapt to maintain their relevance for a broader sector of the population. Ultimately, they will need to encompass a wider range of musical skills.
	B. For all these reasons, there is likely to be a continuing demand for instrumental teaching in the short term. What about the longer term picture? Is there likely to be a shift in focus and, if so, what direction will it take?
	C. I would respond to the latter question on a positive note. The music industry is one of the major generators of income in Britain and musical skill and talent will continue to be important in preparing individuals to work in a variety of professions, in particular those related to the media.
	D. This represents a fundamental change from traditional practice and it will be accompanied by the need to respond to demands for public accountability. Viewed positively, this should provide an opportunity for all those involved in music education to demonstrate the high quality of music tuition available.
	E. There seems little doubt that the widening access to music is likely to continue, fulfilling as it does so many human needs. On a national level, no major state occasion is without music. For individuals, it provides opportunities for numerous activities, formal and informal.
	F. One of the best-recognised functions is that of providing an outlet for emotional expression. Its influence on our moods can be therapeutic. It provides a means of communicating which goes beyond words and provides us with shared unspoken understandings. 
	G. Developing in parallel with this trend is a likely increase in the number of people, across the whole age range, who wish to actively participate in music making. Such activities are likely to be community based and will reflect the musical traditions of that community whatever they may be.
	H. While these results are still to be successfully replicated, other data from Europe has indicated that an increase in .group music lessons can have positive effects on social relationships in school and on concentration in young children and those with behavioural difficulties. 
Music - The Challenge Ahead
Technological advances continue to transform our lives at work, at home and in our leisure activities. Susan Hallam discusses their impact on music in Britain.
In the latter part of the 20th century, we saw a rapid increase in the opportunities available for listening to music through radio, TV, records, tapes, CDs, videos and a rapidly developing range of multi-media techniques. Along with this, there has been a decline in the performance of live music and in the full-time employment opportunities for professional musicians.
(69) .
Indeed, a society without music is surely unthinkable and it seems that the issue is not whether there will be music in the 21st century but what the nature of that music will be; and also whether there will be a continued perceived need for people to learn to play musical instruments.
(70) 	
In addition to its vocational significance, there is a growing body of evidence that playing an instrument may be beneficial to the development of skills at an earlier stage. Research in the USA has suggested that listening to or actively making music has a direct positive effect on spatial reasoning, one aspect of the measurement of intelligence.
(71) ..
Taking the idea behind such findings one step further, current research is investigating to what extent playing an instrument may even encourage the development of transferable skills. For instance, the need to practise regularly may assist in the acquisition of good study habits and focused concentration; playing in concerts may encourage habits of punctuality and good organization.
(72) 
While there are many possible scenarios, I believe that two possibilities are likely. Firstly, the kinds of music to which people will listen will become more diverse. New genres will develop which will integrate different styles. Secondly, there will be an increase in the use of technology to compose and perform music. This will widen access to composition as there will be less reliance on technical skill but at the same time, it is likely to further reduce the need for live performance and musicians whose role is solely related to it.
(73) .
	If this vision of the future is to be realised, what does the music profession need to do in preparation? The focus of instrumental tuition will need to change. Ways will need to be found to enable more people to learn to play a range of instruments, throughout their life span.
(74) .
	Crucial to the success of the process will be the training of musicians. They will need to be able to motivate, inspire and teach learners of all ages, develop skills for working with large and diverse groups and acquire the communication, social, entrepreneurial and management skills necessary for community work.
(75) .....
	Finally, we need to strive towards raising the profile of music itself. Music plays a crucial role in our lives but all too often it is taken for granted. Those involved in the music profession at all levels need to work actively together to ensure that this changes.
