Exercise 1 : Read the passage carefully. Choose the correct word from the words
given in the box and write its letter in each blank.

(A) diseased (D) process (G) injured (K) check-up
(B) damaged (E) survival (H) material (L) refilled
(C) treatment (F) updated (J) beat (M) restored

A few months ago, a turtle in Thailand was seriously (1) when it

was run over by a truck. The animal hardly seemed to have any chance of
(2) . However, with the immediate help of the Thai Animal Guardians
Association, it did survive. The Association admitted the turtle to Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn

University for medical (3) .

The plucky little survivor was named Jikko and the Bangkok Post (a local

newspaper) kept readers (4) on the animal’s progress. According to

veterinarian Nantarika Chansue, Jikko is now quite fit and a fibre-glass shell has been

placed over its outer shell which was (5) in the accident. This was to

speed up the healing (6) .

This means that Jikko is the only turtle in Thailand (and possibly in the world) to

have a fibre-glass shell! This artificial shell is made from a (7) that

would crack and fall off when the natural shell is fully (8) .

DID YOU KNOW?

Turtles and tortoises are reptiles, both easily identifiable by their shells.
The fossils of these animals date back to the Triassic period (about
245 million years ago). This means that these reptiles existed even
before the first dinosaur groups emerged (the oldest one dates back to
200 million years ago). Turtle (and tortoise) shell is made up of a series
of bony plates covered with a horny shield. Although the shell is hard,
it is a surprisingly sensitive structure because of the many nerves
embedded in it.

Exercise 2: Read the passage carefully. Fill in the blank with a suitable word.

Today, one out of every ten people walking down the street is left-handed. In the

past. Young students who used their left hands to (1) were

punished for doing so. Some of them eventually learnt to write with their right hand, but

only after putting in much (2) .

These days, parents and teachers are far more accepting and understanding. In

almost every school in the world, students who are left-handed are

(3) to continue using their left hand to write.

An interesting (4) to ask is whether there is any

connection between left-handed people and creative genius. Some of history’s most

creative minds have been left-handed. In the category of music, Ludwig van Beethoven

was left-handed. In the field of (5) and technology, Benjamin

Franklin and Albert Einstein were left-handed. In the (6) of art,

you have Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. Each of these persons had a mind so

exceptional as to be head and (7) above anyone else in their

field.

So even though it may be more (8) for a left-handed

person to live in a world designed for right-handed people, lefties can know that they

are in good company.

Exercise 3: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.

My name is Geoffrey Hobbes-Smith. I am an expert in antique musical
instruments. I live in Oxford where I have a small but important business. I buy and sell
antique musical instruments. It is necessary for me to travel a lot because of my work. I
frequently visit France, Italy and Germany and sometimes I go as far as America or even
Japan.

Six months ago, I was in Italy. I had been invited to attend a festival of early music
on the Island of Ischia. Ischia in the spring was beautiful. An island as green as an
emerald, and around it, a sea as blue as the sky above. I stayed in an enormous villa,
which once belonged to a famous English composer. It had a huge garden, with hundreds
of lemon trees. The lemons in Ischia were as big as footballs. I do not like travelling but
sometimes being in a different place is a pleasure.

The music festival was very boring. There were a lot of enthusiastic students there,
but there were not any famous or important musicians. I only like listening to famous and
important musicians. Students should stay at home and practice – not play their
instruments in public! After one or two concerts, I was bored. I preferred to stay in my
lovely garden and look at the deep blue sea and the dark green trees.

When the last night of the festival arrived, I was happy. “Tomorrow, I will be bale to
go back home!” I though. As I had not been to many of the concerts, I though that I should
at least attend the final one. I arrived when the small orchestra was tuning up, and
mentally prepared myself for another boring evening. I even closed my eyes and
though

about sleeping.
Unfortunately, things became more complicated. The organizer of the music

festival noticed my presence. Before I knew it, my name was announced and I was invited
to play a piece on the violin. The crowd applauded as they waited for me to make my way
up to the stage. I felt queasy as I dragged my reluctant body towards the violin which they
had prepared especially for me. I took a deep breath and played my favourite self-
composed piece.

The crowd loved it. Various shouts for an encore echoed through the concert hall.
The organizer was delighted. In fact, he was so delighted that he invited me to play for
his

personal party which was to be held two days later. I could not reject his offer for it would 3
have been rude. However, I knew that I wanted to return home where my heart was. So it
was with a heavy heart that I accepted his offer.
