TASK 2

Read the text below. Match choices (A—H) to 6—10. There are three choices von don’t need to use.

6. Humidity is the amount of moisture that is in the air. Warm air expands and can hold more moisture than cold air. When the air can hold no more moisture it forms small droplets called clouds. Meteorologists often measure the relative humidity in the air. That is the amount of water in the air compared to how much water the air at that temperature can really hold. Relative humidity can reach nearly 100%. The air is completely saturated with water.

7. Air can be cold or warm, wet or dry. When different kinds of air masses meet a front forms. When a warm front approaches, air starts to rise and forms clouds. Light rain usually comes with a warm front. About a day later a cold front follows. Cold fronts move faster than warm fronts and often catch up with them. The cold air moves under the warm front and pushes the warm air up. Clouds and rainfall are the result. Sometimes such a front can even cause short showers and thunderstorms.

8. Because the earth rotates around its axis air does not move directly from high to low pressure areas. The Coriolis effect makes winds shift. There are three big global wind systems.

9. Air pressure is the weight of the air. Cold air is heavier and sinks to the ground while warm air rises. When air moves it produces wind. Air moves from high pressure areas to places where the air is not so dense.

10. Temperature is one of the most important elements in our weather. How warm or cold it is depends on many factors. The temperature of the air is higher when sun rays hit the earth. Temperatures also vary from season to season. During the summer the earth's axis is tilted towards the sun, so the rays of the sun hit us more directly. The days are longer and we get more sunlight.

This element

A comes down

B one of the most important

C makes winds shift.

D is made of water in the air.

E is formed when warm and cold air meet.

F is discussed by scientists.

G is rapidly changing.

H is the weight of the air.

TASK 3

Read the text below. Decide if each sentence 11—15 at the bottom of the page is True or false.

Fay: Hi Jerry. I’m thinking of applying for a job with a multinational company, but I’m worried about having an interview in English. Can you give me any good lips?

Jerry: Hmmm. That’s a tough one. I guess the first thing is to try to make a good impression. We often say, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression’’. You really need to get off to a good start.

Fay: That sounds like good advice. Maybe I could sing and dance for them, ha ha ha! Then they’d really be impressed! But seriously, how do I make a good first impression?

Jerry: To begin with, you should firmly shake the interviewer’s hand while greeting him or her with a smile. Be sure to keep eye contact, especially when listening to the interviewer.

Fay: Ah, “body language” is really important, isn’t it?

Jerry: Yes, it is. The second tiling is to have confidence. You get confidence from being prepared. You should learn a little bit about the company before the interview. Find out what they do, how long they’ve been in business, what their business motto is, that kind of thing. You should also anticipate possible questions, and think about how you will answer.

Fay: Should I memorize my answers beforehand?

Jerry: No! Definitely not! That sounds very mechanical. You should be natural when you speak. Just think about how you want to answer, and choose the right words at the time of the interview. That way, you can use the interviewer’s own words in your answer, which show's you’ve been listening. Then you’re sure to make a good impression.

Fay: I never thought about that before. You’re really smart, Jerry! But what should 1 do if I can’t remember an English word when I’m answering a question?

Jerry: In that case, you have to paraphrase. In other words, you have to explain what you want to say. For example, if you forget the word “manufacturing”, you can say “making a product” instead. Or instead of “statistics” you could say “using many big numbers to describe something”.

Fay: That’s very helpful, Jerry. Thanks so much. Ah, one more thing. Should I ask about the salary during the interview?

Jerry: No, either let them bring up the topic of money, or else wait for a second interview. If you prepare well, make a good first impression, have confidence, and use English naturally, you’re almost certain to be interviewed again.

TASK 4

Read the text below. For questions (16—20) choose the correct answer (А, В, C, or D). Write your answers on the separate answer sheet.

When we talk about “the City of London” we do not mean London, the capital of England. We think of a small area east of the town centre. It is an area of a long and exciting history, and it has a traditional role as a centre of trade, law, finance and banking for the entire UK.

The City is one of the major banking centres of the world and you can find banks of many nations in it. Here is also the Bank of England, which issues banknotes, advises the government on financial matters and determines the bank rate.

Nearby is the Stock Exchange where you can buy or sell shares on the open market. There are also many insurance companies, among which Lloyd’s is the most famous.

During weekdays you can see gentlemen with their bowler hats, umbrellas and pin-striped suits. This is the symbol of the City, and you will not see anybody dressed like this outside this part of London.

From Monday to Friday the City teems with life. Haifa million people work in this area, but only 5,000 live there. That is why at weekends it is deserted and uncannily silent.

Nowadays, the City has to compete with cities which now have larger financial markets, such as Tokyo and New York.
