I. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions
Long before they can actually speak, babies pay special attention to the speech they hear around
them. Within the first month of their lives, babies' responses to the sound of the human voice will be different
from their responses to other sorts of auditory stimuli. They will stop crying when they hear a person talking,
but not if they hear a bell or the sound of a rattle. At first, the sounds that an infant notices might be
only those words that receive the heaviest emphasis and that often occur at the ends of utterances. By the
time they are six or seven weeks old, babies can detect the difference between syllables pronounced
with rising and falling inflections. Very soon, these differences in adult stress and intonation can influence
babies' emotional states and behavior. Long before they develop actual language comprehension, babies
can sense when an adult is playful or angry, attempting to initiate or terminate new behavior, and so on,
merely on the basis of cues such as the rate, volume, and melody of adult speech.

Adults make it as easy as they can for babies to pick up a language by exaggerating such cues.
One researcher observed babies and their mothers in six diverse cultures and found that, in all six languages,
the mothers used simplified syntax, short utterances and nonsense sounds, and transformed certain
sounds into baby talk. Other investigators have noted that when mothers talk to babies who are only a few
months old, they exaggerate the pitch, loudness, and intensity of their words. They also exaggerate their
facial expressions, hold vowels longer, and emphasize certain words.
More significant for language development than their response to general intonation is observation
that tiny babies can make relatively fine distinctions between speech sounds. In other words, babies enter the
world with the ability to make precisely those perceptual discriminations that are necessary if they are to
acquire aural language.
Babies obviously derive pleasure from sound input, too: even as young as nine months they will listen to
songs or stories, although the words themselves are beyond their understanding. For babies, language is a
sensory-motor delight rather than the route to prosaic meaning that it often is for adults.
Câu 1. What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. The differences between a baby's and an adult's ability to comprehend language

language
D. Mothers from different cultures speak to their babies in similar ways
Câu 3. According to the author, why do babies listen to songs and stories, even though they cannot
understand them?
A. They understand the rhythm
B. They can remember them easily
C. They focus on the meaning of their parents' word
D. They enjoy the sound
Câu 4. What point does the author make to illustrate that babies are born with the ability to acquire

IV. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions
In the West, cartoons are used chiefly to make people laugh. The important feature of all these
cartoons is the joke and the element of surprise which is contained. Even though it is very funny, a good
cartoon is always based on close observation of a particular feature of life and usually has a serious purpose.
Cartoons in the West have been associated with political and social matters for many years. In
wartime, for example, they proved to be an excellent way of spreading propaganda. Nowadays cartoons are
often used to make short, sharp comments on politics and governments as well as on a variety of social
matters. In this way, the modern cartoon has become a very powerful force in influencing people in Europe
and the United States.
Unlike most American and European cartoons, however, many Chinese cartoon drawings in the past
have also attempted to educate people, especially those who could not read and write. Such cartoons about the
lives and sayings of great men in China have proved extremely useful in bringing education to illiterate and
semi-literate people throughout China. Confucius, Mencius and Laozi have all appeared in very interesting
stories presented in the form of cartoons. The cartoons themselves have thus served to illustrate the teachings
of the Chinese sages in a very attractive way.
In this sense, many Chinese cartoons are different from Western cartoons in so far as they do not
depend chiefly on telling jokes. Often, there is nothing to laugh at when you see Chinese cartoons. This is not
their primary aim. In addition to commenting on serious political and social matters, Chinese cartoons have
aimed at spreading the traditional Chinese thoughts and culture as widely as possible among the people.
Today, however, Chinese cartoons have an added part to play in spreading knowledge. They offer a
very attractive and useful way of reaching people throughout the world, regardless of the particular country in


Trang 5/5 - Mã đề: 378

which they live. Thus, through cartoons, the thoughts and teachings of the old Chinese philosophers and sages
can now reach people who live in such countries as Britain, France, America, Japan, Malaysia or Australia and
who are unfamiliar with the Chinese culture.
Until recently, the transfer of knowledge and culture has been overwhelmingly from the West to the
East and not vice versa. By means of cartoons, however, publishing companies in Taiwan, Hong Kong and
Singapore are now having success in correcting this imbalance between the East and the West.
Cartoons can overcome language barriers in all foreign countries. The vast increase in the popularity of these
cartoons serves to illustrate the truth of Confucius's famous saying "One picture is worth a thousand words."

D. educating ordinary people

correct answer to each of the questions
In the West, cartoons are used chiefly to make people laugh. The important feature of all these
cartoons is the joke and the element of surprise which is contained. Even though it is very funny, a good
cartoon is always based on close observation of a particular feature of life and usually has a serious purpose.
Cartoons in the West have been associated with political and social matters for many years. In
wartime, for example, they proved to be an excellent way of spreading propaganda. Nowadays cartoons are
often used to make short, sharp comments on politics and governments as well as on a variety of social
matters. In this way, the modern cartoon has become a very powerful force in influencing people in Europe
and the United States.
Unlike most American and European cartoons, however, many Chinese cartoon drawings in the past
have also attempted to educate people, especially those who could not read and write. Such cartoons about the
lives and sayings of great men in China have proved extremely useful in bringing education to illiterate and
semi-literate people throughout China. Confucius, Mencius and Laozi have all appeared in very interesting
stories presented in the form of cartoons. The cartoons themselves have thus served to illustrate the teachings
of the Chinese sages in a very attractive way.
In this sense, many Chinese cartoons are different from Western cartoons in so far as they do not
depend chiefly on telling jokes. Often, there is nothing to laugh at when you see Chinese cartoons. This is not
their primary aim. In addition to commenting on serious political and social matters, Chinese cartoons have
aimed at spreading the traditional Chinese thoughts and culture as widely as possible among the people.


Trang 5/5 - Mã đề: 378

Today, however, Chinese cartoons have an added part to play in spreading knowledge. They offer a
very attractive and useful way of reaching people throughout the world, regardless of the particular country in
which they live. Thus, through cartoons, the thoughts and teachings of the old Chinese philosophers and sages
can now reach people who live in such countries as Britain, France, America, Japan, Malaysia or Australia and
who are unfamiliar with the Chinese culture.
Until recently, the transfer of knowledge and culture has been overwhelmingly from the West to the
East and not vice versa. By means of cartoons, however, publishing companies in Taiwan, Hong Kong and
Singapore are now having success in correcting this imbalance between the East and the West.
Cartoons can overcome language barriers in all foreign countries. The vast increase in the popularity of these
cartoons serves to illustrate the truth of Confucius's famous saying "One picture is worth a thousand words."
Câu 8. The word "imbalance" in paragraph 6 refers to ______.
A. the dominant cultural influence of the West over the East
B. the influence of the East cartoons over the West cartoons
C. the mismatch between the East cartoons and the West cartoons
D. the discrimination between the West culture and the East culture
Câu 9. The pronoun "this" in paragraph 4 mostly refers to ______.
A. a funny element
B. a propaganda campaign
C. an educational purpose
D. a piece of art
Câu 10. In general, Chinese cartoons are now aiming at ______.
A. disseminating traditional practices in China and throughout the world
B. spreading the Chinese ideas and cultural values throughout the world
C. bringing education to illiterate and semi-literate people in the world
D. illustrating the truth of Chinese great men's famous sayings
Câu 11. Which of the following clearly characterizes Western cartoons?
A. Originality, freshness, and astonishment
B. Seriousness, propaganda, and attractiveness
C. Humour, unexpectedness, and criticism
D. Enjoyment, liveliness, and carefulness
Câu 12. Which of the following could be the best title for the passage?

IV. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions
Long before they can actually speak, babies pay special attention to the speech they hear around
them. Within the first month of their lives, babies' responses to the sound of the human voice will be different
from their responses to other sorts of auditory stimuli. They will stop crying when they hear a person talking,
but not if they hear a bell or the sound of a rattle. At first, the sounds that an infant notices might be
only those words that receive the heaviest emphasis and that often occur at the ends of utterances. By the
time they are six or seven weeks old, babies can detect the difference between syllables pronounced
with rising and falling inflections. Very soon, these differences in adult stress and intonation can influence
babies' emotional states and behavior. Long before they develop actual language comprehension, babies
can sense when an adult is playful or angry, attempting to initiate or terminate new behavior, and so on,
merely on the basis of cues such as the rate, volume, and melody of adult speech.
Adults make it as easy as they can for babies to pick up a language by exaggerating such cues.


Trang 5/5 - Mã đề: 378

One researcher observed babies and their mothers in six diverse cultures and found that, in all six languages,
the mothers used simplified syntax, short utterances and nonsense sounds, and transformed certain
sounds into baby talk. Other investigators have noted that when mothers talk to babies who are only a few
months old, they exaggerate the pitch, loudness, and intensity of their words. They also exaggerate their
facial expressions, hold vowels longer, and emphasize certain words.
More significant for language development than their response to general intonation is observation
that tiny babies can make relatively fine distinctions between speech sounds. In other words, babies enter the
world with the ability to make precisely those perceptual discriminations that are necessary if they are to
acquire aural language.
Babies obviously derive pleasure from sound input, too: even as young as nine months they will listen to
songs or stories, although the words themselves are beyond their understanding. For babies, language is a
sensory-motor delight rather than the route to prosaic meaning that it often is for adults.
Câu 16. Why does the author mention a bell and a rattle in paragraph 1?
A. To give examples of typical toys that babies do not like
B. To give examples of sounds that will cause a baby to cry
C. To contrast the reactions of babies to human and nonhuman sounds
D. To explain how babies distinguish between different nonhuman sounds
Câu 17. Which of the following can be inferred about the findings described in paragraph 2?
A. Babies who are exposed to more than one language can speak earlier than babies exposed to a single
language
B. Mothers from different cultures speak to their babies in similar ways
C. The mothers observed by the researchers were consciously teaching their babies to speak
D. Babies ignore facial expressions in comprehending aural language
Câu 18. The passage mentions all of the followings as the ways adults modify their speech when talking to
babies EXCEPT ….
A. speaking more loudly than normal
B. using meaningless sounds
C. speaking with shorter sentences
D. giving all words equal emphasis
Câu 19. The word "They" in paragraph 2 refers to ……..

XI. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions
In the West, cartoons are used chiefly to make people laugh. The important feature of all these
cartoons is the joke and the element of surprise which is contained. Even though it is very funny, a good
cartoon is always based on close observation of a particular feature of life and usually has a serious purpose.
Cartoons in the West have been associated with political and social matters for many years. In
wartime, for example, they proved to be an excellent way of spreading propaganda. Nowadays cartoons are
often used to make short, sharp comments on politics and governments as well as on a variety of social
matters. In this way, the modern cartoon has become a very powerful force in influencing people in Europe
and the United States.
Unlike most American and European cartoons, however, many Chinese cartoon drawings in the past
have also attempted to educate people, especially those who could not read and write. Such cartoons about the
lives and sayings of great men in China have proved extremely useful in bringing education to illiterate and
semi-literate people throughout China. Confucius, Mencius and Laozi have all appeared in very interesting
stories presented in the form of cartoons. The cartoons themselves have thus served to illustrate the teachings
of the Chinese sages in a very attractive way.
In this sense, many Chinese cartoons are different from Western cartoons in so far as they do not
depend chiefly on telling jokes. Often, there is nothing to laugh at when you see Chinese cartoons. This is not
their primary aim. In addition to commenting on serious political and social matters, Chinese cartoons have
aimed at spreading the traditional Chinese thoughts and culture as widely as possible among the people.
Today, however, Chinese cartoons have an added part to play in spreading knowledge. They offer a
very attractive and useful way of reaching people throughout the world, regardless of the particular country in
which they live. Thus, through cartoons, the thoughts and teachings of the old Chinese philosophers and sages
can now reach people who live in such countries as Britain, France, America, Japan, Malaysia or Australia and
who are unfamiliar with the Chinese culture.
Until recently, the transfer of knowledge and culture has been overwhelmingly from the West to the
East and not vice versa. By means of cartoons, however, publishing companies in Taiwan, Hong Kong and
Singapore are now having success in correcting this imbalance between the East and the West.

V. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions
Long before they can actually speak, babies pay special attention to the speech they hear around
them. Within the first month of their lives, babies' responses to the sound of the human voice will be different
from their responses to other sorts of auditory stimuli. They will stop crying when they hear a person talking,
but not if they hear a bell or the sound of a rattle. At first, the sounds that an infant notices might be
only those words that receive the heaviest emphasis and that often occur at the ends of utterances. By the
time they are six or seven weeks old, babies can detect the difference between syllables pronounced
with rising and falling inflections. Very soon, these differences in adult stress and intonation can influence
babies' emotional states and behavior. Long before they develop actual language comprehension, babies
can sense when an adult is playful or angry, attempting to initiate or terminate new behavior, and so on,
merely on the basis of cues such as the rate, volume, and melody of adult speech.
Adults make it as easy as they can for babies to pick up a language by exaggerating such cues.
One researcher observed babies and their mothers in six diverse cultures and found that, in all six languages,
the mothers used simplified syntax, short utterances and nonsense sounds, and transformed certain
sounds into baby talk. Other investigators have noted that when mothers talk to babies who are only a few
months old, they exaggerate the pitch, loudness, and intensity of their words. They also exaggerate their
facial expressions, hold vowels longer, and emphasize certain words.
More significant for language development than their response to general intonation is observation
that tiny babies can make relatively fine distinctions between speech sounds. In other words, babies enter the
world with the ability to make precisely those perceptual discriminations that are necessary if they are to
acquire aural language.
Babies obviously derive pleasure from sound input, too: even as young as nine months they will listen to
songs or stories, although the words themselves are beyond their understanding. For babies, language is a
sensory-motor delight rather than the route to prosaic meaning that it often is for adults.
Câu 25. Which of the following can be inferred about the findings described in paragraph 2?
A. The mothers observed by the researchers were consciously teaching their babies to speak
B. Babies ignore facial expressions in comprehending aural language
C. Babies who are exposed to more than one language can speak earlier than babies exposed to a single
language
D. Mothers from different cultures speak to their babies in similar ways

A. mothers
B. investigators
C. words
D. babies
Câu 27. The passage mentions all of the followings as the ways adults modify their speech when talking to
babies EXCEPT……………
A. using meaningless sounds
B. speaking with shorter sentences
C. giving all words equal emphasis
D. speaking more loudly than normal
Câu 28. What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. How babies differentiate between the sound of the human voice and other sounds
B. How babies perceive and respond to the human voice in their earliest stages of language
development
C. The response of babies to sounds other than the human voice
D. The differences between a baby's and an adult's ability to comprehend language
Câu 29. Why does the author mention a bell and a rattle in paragraph 1?
A. To contrast the reactions of babies to human and nonhuman sounds
B. To give examples of typical toys that babies do not like

B. Babies begin to understand words in songs
C. Babies notice even minor differences between speech sounds
D. Babies are more sensitive to sounds than are adults
