Upon his discharge, the couple settled into married life together in the Plainwell, Otsego
area. To help make ends meet, Jean went to work at the collection bureau in Kalamazoo for a while,
before taking a job at the cheese company in Otsego. In 1964, Chuck and Jean were overjoyed with
the birth of their son, Chuck, who brought great joy into their lives. Jean remembered how her
mother was always gone so much working after her father died and she did not want that for her

ENGLISH TOPICAL TESTS FOR UPPER SECONDARY STUDENTS
Choose the option marked A, B, C, or D that best completes each of the following sentences.
My aunt is one of those people who can talk to anyone about anything. If she goes to a party
where she doesn't know any of the people, she just walks up to the first person that she sees and
introduces herself. And yet she doesn't seem to talk about deeply important things like politics or
religion. She always starts off on something very obvious like the other person's job. Very soon
she's talking as if she's known the other person for years. I asked her once what her secret was. She
said that the most important thing in a conversation was listening. People love to talk about
themselves, so if you allow them to do so, it's very easy to keep a conversation going. You have to
listen very carefully and ask questions. And you have to look interested, too. So don't keep looking
at other things in the room while you're talking to someone.
Another thing that I've noticed is that she only pays people compliments. She says: “I like
your hair. Which hairdresser do you go to?” or “You look very well. Have you been on holiday?”
Friendly messages like this seem to provide an easy way into a conversation.
Question 41. According to my aunt, the most important thing in a conversation was__________.
A. speaking

B. asks people to introduces themselves to her
C. comes over to the first person and introduces herself
D. sits alone and avoids talking to other people
Question 43. My aunt thinks that it's very easy to keep a conversation going if you__________.
A. let people talk about themselves
B. let people hear about yourself
C. talk about politics or religion
D. ask people about their secrets
Question 44. What should you NOT do when you have a conversation with someone?
A. Looking very interested in his or her story
B. Looking at other things in the room
C. Listening very carefully and asking questions D. Paying him or her compliments
Question 45. According to the passage, my aunt often starts a conversation by talking about
________. A. the other person's wealth
B. the other person's health
C. the other person's daily activities
D. the other person's job
Choose the word or phrase marked A, B, C, or D that best fits each space in the following
text.
In Germany, it's important to be serious in a work situation. They don't mix work and play
so you shouldn't make jokes (46)________ you do in the UK and USA when you first meet people. They
work in a very organized way and prefer to do one thing at a time. They don't like· interruptions or
(47)_________ changes of schedule. Punctuality is very important so you should arrive on time for
appointments. At meeting, it's important to follow the agenda and not interrupt (48)_________
speaker. If you give a presentation, you should focus (49)__________ facts and technical information
and the quality of your company's products. You should also prepare well, as they may ask a lot of
questions. Colleagues normally use the family names, and title - for example 'Doctor' or 'Professor',
so you shouldn't use first names (50)_______ a person asks you to.

BODY LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCES
The body language people use often communicates more about their feelings than the
words they are saying. We use body movements, hand gestures, facial expressions, and changes in
our voice to communicate with each other. Although some body language is universal, many
gestures are culturally specific and may mean different things in different countries.
If you want to give someone the nod in Bulgaria, you have to nod your head to say no and
shake it to say yes – the exact opposite of what we do! In Belgium, pointing with your index finger
or snapping your fingers at someone is very rude.
In France, you shouldn’t rest your feet on tables or chairs. Speaking to someone with your
hands in your pockets will only make matters worse. In the Middle East, you should never show the
soles of your feet or shoes to others as it will be seen as a grave insult. When eating, only use your
right hand because they use their left hands when going to the bathroom.
In Bangladesh, the ‘thumbs-up’ is a rude sign. In Myanmar, people greet each other by
clapping, and in India, whistling in public is considered rude.
In Japan, you should not blow your nose in public, but you can burp at the end of a meal to
show that you have enjoyed it. The ‘OK’ sign (thumb and index finger forming a circle) means
‘everything is good’ in the West, but in China it means nothing or zero. In Japan, it means money,
and in the Middle East, it is a rude gesture.
Question 36. It is mentioned in the passage that many gestures___________.
A. may mean different things in different countries
B. are not used to communicate our feelings
C. can be used to greet each other in public
D. are used in greeting among men and women

In 1988, for the first time in British history, a National Curriculum was introduced. The
National Curriculum tells pupils which subjects they have to study, what they must learn and when
they have to take assessment tests.
Between the ages of 14 and 16, pupils study for their GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary
Education) exams. Pupils must take English Language, Maths and Science for GCSE, as well as a
half GCSE in a foreign language and Technology. In addition, they must also be taught Physical
Education, Religious Education and Sex Education, although they do not take exams in these
subjects.
At the age of 16, pupils can leave school. If pupils stay on, they usually take A (Advanced)
levels, AS (Advanced Supplementary) level or GNVQs (Greater National Vocational Qualifications).
It is quite common to combine, for example, two A levels with one AS level, or one A level with one
GNVQ. Pupils taking A levels study traditional subjects, such as French, Physics or History. To go to

Last week I went to visit Atlantic College, an excellent private college in Wales. Unusually, it
gives people much needed experience of life outside the classroom, as well as the opportunity to
study for their exams. The students, who are aged between 16 and 18 and come from all over the
word, spend the morning studying. In the afternoon they go out and do a really useful activity, such
as helping on the farm, looking after people with learning difficulties, or checking for pollution in
rivers.
One of the great things about Atlantic College students is that they come from many
different social backgrounds and countries. As few can afford the fees of £20,000 over two years,
grants are available.
A quarter of students are British, and many of those can only attend because they receive
government help.
“I really admire the college for trying to encourage international understanding among
young people", as Barbara Molenkamp, a student from the Netherlands, said. ''You learn to live
with people and respect them, even the ones you don't like. During the summer holidays my mother
couldn't believe how much less I argued with my sister."
To sum up, Atlantic College gives its students an excellent education, using methods which
really seem to work.
Question 41. What is the writer trying to do in the text?
A. give an opinion about a particular student
B. give an opinion about a special type of education
C. describe the activities the students do in their free time
D. describe his own experience of education
Question 42. What can a reader find out from this text?
A. how to become a student at Atlantic College
B. what kind of program Atlantic College offers
C. what the British education system is like D. how to get along better with other people
Question 43. What is the writer's opinion of Atlantic College?
A. It doesn't allow students enough study time. B. Its students are taught to like each other.
C. It doesn’t give good value for money.
D. Its way of teaching is successful.
Question 44. How has Barbara changed since being at Atlantic College?
A. She knows a lot about other countries.
B. She is more confident than her sister now.
C. She finds it easier to get on with other people. D. She prefers her new friends to her family.
Question 45. The word "argued" in the third paragraph is closest in meaning to_________.
A. quarreled
B. respected
C. admired
D. regarded
Choose the word or phrase marked A, B, C, or D that best fits each space in the following
text.
The relationship between students and teachers is (46)_________formal in the USA than in
many other countries, especially at the college level. American college students do not stand up
when their teacher enters the room. Students are generally encouraged to ask questions in class, to
stop in the professor of lice for extra help, and to phone if they are absent and need a(n)
(47)_________. Most teachers allow students to enter class late or leave early, if necessary. Despite
the lack of formality, students are still expected to be polite to their teacher and fellow classmates.
When students want to ask questions, they usually (48)__________a hand and wait to be called on.
When the teacher or a student is speaking to the class, it is rude to begin whispering
(49)_________another classmate. When a test is being given, talking to' a classmate is not only rude

Computer programmer David Jones earns £35,000 a year designing new computer games,
yet he cannot find a bank prepared to let him have a cheque card. Instead, he has been told to wait
another two years, until he is 18.
The 16-year-old works for a small firm in Liverpool, where the problem of most young
people of his age is finding a job. David's firm releases two new games for the expanding home
computer market each month. But David's biggest headache is what to do with his money.
Despite his salary, earned by inventing new programs within tight schedules, with bonus
payments and profit-sharing, he cannot drive a car, take out a mortgage, or obtain credit cards.
He lives with his parents in their council house in Liverpool, where his father is a bus driver. His
company has to pay £150 a month in taxi fares to get him the five miles to work and back every day
because David cannot drive.
David got his job with the Liverpool-based company four months ago, a year after leaving
school with six O-levels and working for a time in a computer shop. "I got the job because the
people who run the firm knew 1 had already written some programs," he said.
"I suppose £35,000 sounds a lot but actually that's being pessimistic. I hope it will come to
more than that this year." He spends some of his money on records and clothes, and gives his
mother £20 a week. But most his spare time is spent working.
"Unfortunately, computing was not part of our studies at school," he said. "But 1 had been
studying it in books and 'magazines for four years in my spare time. 1 knew what 1 wanted to do
and never considered staying on at school. Most people in this business are fairly young, anyway."
David added: "I would like to earn a million and 1 suppose early retirement is a possibility.
You never know when the market might disappear."
Question 41. Why is David different from other young people at his age?
A. He earns an extremely high salary.
B. He is not unemployed.
C. He does not go out much.
D. He lives at home with his parents.
Question 42. David's greatest problem is___________.
