Matching headings exercises

EX1: Read the following article and choose the most suitable heading for each of the following sections of the article
from the list A to H. There are two extra headings which you do not need to use. Write your answer in the numbered
box.
A. Bargain prices
D. Ensuring availability
G. Lost lugguage compensation

B. Escaping the crowds
E. Save on taxi fares
H. Changing to a better seat

C. In-flight comfort
F. Cheap excess baggage

1
Membership of an airline loyalty club will guarantee you a seat on a flight, even when that flight is fully booked for ‘normal
passangers’. Air France, KLM, Scandinavian Airlines and Singapore Airlines are just four carriers offering this facility to their
very best customers. Others, like British Airways, Lufthansa and Swissair, are not quite so bold with their claims but all will
move heaven and earth to secure a seat for their club members.
2
First-class and bussiness-class passengers get the pick of the seating, ‘up front’ away from all the engine noise and vibration.

Economy passengers are invariably seated in the noisier, back rows of the aircraft, however, and airline seating plans
( displayed in timetables) enable you to choose the best seat.
3
Traveling with overweight baggage can cost you dearly. On long-haul flights, the airlines give you a free baggage allowance of
between 20 and 64 kilos, depending on the class of travel and the route. Every excess kilo is charged at one per cent of the firstclass fare. One way round this is to hand over your baggage to an excess company, which can save you as much as 70 per cent
on airline fees. Your luggage will then travel to your destination unaccompanied, and you can either collect it from the airport
or have it delivered to your destination address. It won’t usually arrive the same day, though.
4
Booking a first-class or business-class ticket usually entitles you to use the more peaceful airline executive lounge at the
airport. Regular passengers with an airline can also use the lounges, even when flying on cut-price economy tickets.
5
The unthinkable has happened. You have arrived overseas but your luggage has not appeared on the airport baggage carousel.
Keep calm. In most cases your bags will turn up, eventually. But, before you leave the airport, contact a member of staff and
complete a Baggage Irregularity Report, which ensures that you will receive compensation. However, airlines pay out pitiful
compensastion, so do read the small print on your ticket, and it’s essential to take out adequate insurance beforehand.
6
Securing an upgrade is easier than ever before. Canadian Airlines will now seat some transatlantic passengers who have paid
the economy fare in business class, while business-class passengers bound for New York, Toronto, Delhi or Bombay are
automatically upgraded to first-class if they have paid the full business-class fare. In addition, large companies are increasingly
negotiating an automatic upgrade with airlines.
EX2: Read through the following text and then choose the best phrase given below, to fill each of the
gaps. Write one letter (A-I) in each of the numbered gaps. Some of the suggested answers do not fit
at all. (0) has been done for you (1p).
Every teacher knows that not all students are good examinees. Some are too tense, become overanxious or too stressed and then perform below expectations just when it matters most. Teachers try to help by compensating,
believing that if they boost a student’s academic knowledge they will cure his fear of exams.
So, last year, (0) ____I____, I completely rewrote the Business Studies Revision Course at this secondary school. The
central idea of the course is to treat the examination as an event, a challenge, a performance, much like a sports match, a
drama production, or perhaps a major music concert, (1) ________ and very definitely on the public stage. The idea is to show
that the exam is not a test, but an opportunity to show how good the candidate is.
The objective is to improve students’ final performance (2) ________, control and ability to cope. The theme of ‘total
preparation for performance’ teaches them that (3) ________ are obviously important, they are only two of the five skills
required, the others being coping strategies, mental skills and management skills. These additions give a new dimension (4)
________, increasing enjoyment and motivation. They widen a student’s focus and help to convince some of the less confident
students that there are many ways in which they can actively contributetowards their (5) ________.
