    Over the past twenty years, computers and the internet have become more and more important to us. In fact, depending on computer technology continues to grow everyday. We seem to use computers for almost everything these days; in shopping, driving our car, or communicating with relatives and colleagues.
    This explosion in computer technology has resulted in a rush to install computers in every classroom and to "wire" every school to the Internet. In USA, between 1984 and 1997 alone, the number of computers in secondary schools increased to more than 8 million units. Both educators and students alike have been forced to keep up with this new wave of technology. Teachers have found that even though they themselves are still trying to learn the most basic of computer skills, they are expected to teach students about computer know-how.
    Few people would question the role that computers could play in education. Some educators claim that students given the opportunity to use them in a classroom setting will get better grades than those who learn without having had any computer experience.These people say that just as computer technology has improved the way cars work, computers will make the classroom a better place to teach concepts and ideas that students need to become brighter, more successful adults.
    a. Answer the following questions:
    1. How could computers help students become more successful?
    2. Give an example from the passage that shows that computers have been widely used in secondary education.
    3. Give some examples of everyday uses of computers in our lives.

    Antarctica is the continent surrounding the South Pole. It has an area of over 15 million square kilometers, about the size of the USA and Mexico put together. With an average temperature at the South Pole of 50°C, it is the coldest continent. It is so cold that a thick sheet of ice always lies over the land. Pack ice surrounds the shore of Antarctica and cliffs of ice from the coast. The mountain ranges which lie along the shore and inland are always covered in snow. In fact, Antarctica contains 90% of all the snow and ice in the world.
    However, Antarctica is not just a large, cold desert. It is rich in mineral deposits; ,coal and minerals such as copper, iron, uranium, gold and platinum have found there. Many oil companies have carried out surveys in the area for oil and it is not clear whether they have found any there, and whether it could be successfully
    exploited in the conditions in and around the continent.
    Cold as it is, Antarctica is also rich in animal life, but because of the temperature, the animals and birds found there are aquatic, e.g. seals and penguins. The sea is also particularly rich in Krill which are small shrimp-like creatures that whales, seals' and penguins feed on.
    At the end of the nineteenth century, interest in Antarctica grew, so that an increasing number of explores came from many countries to explore the continent. They were from Sweden, Belgium, Australia and New Zealand. They crossed the coast by sledges pulled by dogs. That means of transport proved more reliable than the motorized means which a British team was using at that time.

    1. How large is Antarctica continent?
    2. Is it possible to grow vegetables in Antarctica soil or not?
    Give reasons for your answer.

    6- Read the following passage, then answer the questions:
    The ancient Greeks always asserted that a healthy mind in a healthy body is the key to a well-balanced life. Nowadays many schools are decreasing the amount of time given to sports, and some schools are removing it altogether. Although academic subjects are certainly a very important part of the school curriculum, I am strongly opposed to the complete removal of sports.
    Firstly, schools have a responsibility to educate children in all areas. For that reason, it is just as important to provide sports practice for the professional sportsmen and women of the future, as it is to provide academic training to those who will go on to university.
    In addition, students these days spend long hours studying or working at their computers. Therefore, they need the opportunity to do some physical activity during the school day. This will not only help to increase their level of fitness and make them healthier, it will also mean that they develop better social skills and are able to concentrate on their studies for longer, and thus achieve better result.
    In conclusion, I strongly believe that sports should remain a key part of the school curriculum. All children have the right to get a balanced education and they should not be deprived of the opportunity to learn how to play sports.

    a. Answer the following questions:
    1. Does the writer support or oppose the issue of increasing sport time at schools?
    2. In your opinion, how could practising sports at schools help students later in university and at work?
    3. Why is it important to practise sports during the school day?
    b. Choose the correct answer from a, b, c or d:
    4. Which statement is not true?
    a- Sports encourage team spirit.
    b- Sports give the chance to be physically fit.
    c- Sports help students become more successful.
    d- Sports lead to overweight.

    8- Write a paragraph of about 100 words on:
    "Global Warming"
    Most people now accept the fact that the world's climate is changing. The carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is increasing mainly because we burn fuels such as oil and gas. The fact that we continue to destroy the rainforests (which take in carbon dioxide and produce oxygen) makes matters worse. How will global warming affect the world? It is now known that the ice at the Arctic and the Antarctic is melting. If this continues, sea levels will rise and some parts of the world will be flooded, making many people homeless. So what can be done? Countries must stop destroying the rainforests and produce less carbon dioxide. And, as individuals, we must all reduce the carbon dioxide we produce. This can be done by people using cars only when they have to or by turning down air conditioning in the summer.

    Computers are a major technological breakthrough of the twenty-first century. Their benefits are numerous; yet, much can be said against them.
    The main disadvantage of a computer is that staring at a screen for long periods of time can be damaging to the eyes, and sitting for hours at a time is certainly not healthy. Secondly, computers distract from social interactions such as conversation. People can be inclined to become anti-social, and stay at home to use their computer. Finally, one of the major arguments against the use of computers is that the more jobs which are done by computers, the fewer are done by people.
    However, the advantages of computers are numerous, such as the undeniable educational benefits, especially to children. School subjects become more interesting when presented on a computer screen. Moreover, computers can be fun with a seemingly endless variety of games which can be played on them. In addition, computers are valuable to any business, making life easier and saving time by being capable of storing and retrieving vast amounts of information at the touch of a button. Furthermore, personal gains can be seen as the use of computers increases powers of concentration. To sum up, there are strong arguments both for and against the use of computers.
    a. Answer the following questions:
    1. How do school subjects become more interesting?
    2. How do computers affect social life?
