OPCIÓN A

Read the text and the instructions to the questions very carefully. Answer all the questions in English.

Questions

1. Write a summary of the text in English, including the most important points, using your own words

whenever possible (maximum 50 words, 1 point).

2. Find words or phrases in the text that correspond in meaning to the words and definitions given here (1

point; 0.25 each).

a) earns a salary

b) danger

c) taking someone’s possessions (by an authority)

d) made uncomfortable

3. Complete the second sentence of each pair so that it has the same meaning as the first one. (2 points;

0.5 point each)

a) Patrick Smith is a pilot. He writes for the on-line magazine Salon.com.

Patrick Smith, ……

b) “Do crews empty the contents of the toilet over people’s houses?”

Some people asked if ….

c) Concentrating on these irrelevant things, you’re wasting time and resources.

If you ………………….

d) Some routes or airports require more attention than others.

More attention ………

4. Answer the following questions in your own words. (2 points; 1 point each)

a) According to Smith, what sorts of things make people afraid of flying?

b) Why does Patrick Smith think that it’s a waste of time to confiscate things like scissors, army knives

and small metal objects from people at airports?

5. What is your favourite means of transport? Why? (Approximately 120 words; 3 points ).

For some people, fear can create a business opportunity. Patrick Smith, for example, makes a living out of

answering questions about an activity that many people are afraid of, namely getting on an airplane. A pilot

himself, Patrick Smith’s Ask the Pilot column on the online magazine Salon.com has become very popular in the

United States. When asked, he says that some of the more notorious questions he gets are about airplane toilets,

for example: “Do crews empty the contents of the toilet over people’s houses?” Another curious question is: “Do

pilots shut off the air conditioning to make the passengers go to sleep?”

More seriously, many people are worried about airport security. Patrick Smith says, “I think we have come to a

point where we have to admit that there’s never going to be a really perfect airport security system, and you have

to accept at least a small amount of risk. Meanwhile, confiscatingscissors and army knives and small metal

objects from people has nothing, basically, to do with security. Yet that is what we’re spending most of our time

doing, focusing on the perception of security. In other words, the more you’re inconvenienced, the safer you must

be, which is really ridiculous. In fact, it may be just the opposite, and concentrating on these irrelevant things,

you’re wasting time and resources, instead of actually trying to solve the problems that are at the root of

terrorism”.

Other people are worried about particular routes or airports that are supposed to be “more dangerous” than others.

Smith says that “dangerous” isn’t the right word. It’s true that some routes or airports are more complicated, and

require more attention than others, but pilots normally like that kind of thing; it’s a challenge, and that’s what

they’re paid to do.

a) Keep your eyes open for haggis in restaurants and pubs

The writer advised us …..

b) At most weddings country dancing is preferable to a disco

At most weddingsthe Scots …..

c) Most language centres provide tours and Scottish entertainment as part of their courses.

Tours and Scottish entertainment…

4. Answer the following questions in your own words. (2 points; 1 point each)

a) What sort of people do you think this passage was written for? Why?

b) In what ways are Scottish traditions and culture different nowadays from what might be expected?

5. If you have done a language course abroad, tell us about it. If not, where would you like to go and do

one, and why would you choose this place? (Approximately 120 words; 3 points).

Scotland has a history and rich culture of which Scots are famously proud. The stereotypical Scot

wearing a kilt, playing bagpipes and eating haggis is not as widespread as visitors might hope, but if

you know where to look you won't be disappointed. Several years ago kilts came back into fashion

and young men started wearing them again. They're very popular at rugby matches, especially the

international matches at Murrayfield. If you're in the centre of town then you’ll probably hear the

sound of bagpipes. There's usually a bagpipe player outside Waverley Station in Edinburgh. As for the

haggis, despite what locals might tell you, haggis do not run around the hills. If you are determined to

try the famous dish of Scotland, keep your eyes open in restaurants and pubs, which often serve it with

turnips and potatoes. Alternatively, most supermarkets sell it in the fridge section.

A ceilidh is a popular social event that involves traditional music and Scottish country dancing. Scots

really do love country dancing. In fact, at most weddings it’s preferable to a disco! Most language

centres provide tours and Scottish entertainment as part of their courses, so you will return home not

only with better English but also able to dance Scottish reels. You may acquire a taste for haggis,

whisky, shortbread, or Irn Bru, an orange-coloured drink that outsells Pepsi and Coca-Cola and is a

very good cure for a hangover. You may even buy a kilt, though a good one will cost as much as a

two-week language course. You can use the Internet to find out about Scotland’s many festivals. Of

course, the Edinburgh International Festival in August is the most famous, but every town and city has

its own, and Glasgow says that it smiles better (= Glasgow's miles better).

a) Why does he say “It must have been weird to watch a blind person wear a blindfold.”?

b) What factors made this particular waterskiing record especially notable?

5. Some famous athletes earn millions of dollars every year. Do you think these people deserve such high

salaries? Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion. (Approximately 120 words; 3

points).

The Guinness World Records lists some very surprising activities among its records. One of the stranger ones

has to be blindfolded waterskiing. This activity involves someone waterskiing while blindfolded. The skier

cannot see the route or water over which they are skiing. The record also involves skiing over open sea.

Conditions on the open sea are much more challenging than on a lake. This makes blindfolded waterskiing a

truly difficult sport that only the bravest and most experienced waterskiers dare to do.

Now a British blind waterskier, Steve Thiele, has set a new world record in an effort to raise money for Cancer

Research UK. Thiele is 100% blind and waterskiing is his favourite sport. Mr Thiele has been blind since falling

from a tree when he was eight and damaging his optic nerve. In the past, Thiele waterskied without a blindfold

and most spectators found it hard to believe he was blind. However, for the world record, Thiele needed to wear

a full blindfold to qualify for the event as Guinness World Records do not distinguish between able-bodied

persons and disabled persons.

Talking of his record-breaking stunt, Thiele said: “It’s great to get a world record and I am very happy to have

completed the challenge”. But, he adds, “It must have been weird to watch a blind person wear a blindfold.”

Thiele broke the existing blindfolded waterskiing record by a big margin. He waterskied around the island of

Anglesey in North Wales. The total distance was 38.4km and the time one hour. The previous record was for a

distance of 32km. However, the currents around Anglesey are very strong and dangerous. So this Guinness

record was set in some of the most difficult open sea waterskiing conditions in the world.

5. Continue the story. Who was the mysterious man? What is going to happen? (Approximately 120 words; 3

points).

She was glad of the lake. Its soft, dark water helped to soothe and quiet her mind. It took her away from the

noisy, stressful world of the cat-walk and let her lie untroubled at its side, listening only to the gentle lapping of

its waves. She felt at peace. Alone. Unhindered and free. Free to do nothing but watch and listen and dream.

London, Paris, New York - names, only names. Names that had once meant excitement, then boredom, then

frustration, then slavery. Names that had brought her to the edge of a breakdown and left her doubting her own

sanity.

But here everything was at peace. The lake, the trees, the cottage. And she was at one with them. Here she could

stay for the rest of her life. Here she would be happy to die.

Across the sun hurried a darkening filter of cloud; the advance guard of a larger and even graver army. The

ripples on the water, chased by a freshening wind, pushed their way anxiously from the far side of the lake until

they almost bounced at her feet. Way above her a solitary rook cawed its way home - a lonely, troubled sound.

And in the East there was thunder.

Quickly she gathered her things together and made for the cottage. But already the rain flecked the water behind

her and pattered on the leaves as she raced beneath the trees. Soaked and breathless, she ran for the cottage door,

and, as she opened it, the storm burst.

And there in the kitchen, skinny, cadaverous and unwelcome, stood a man.

'Hello!'

It was an odd way to greet a complete stranger who had invaded her home, but it was all she could think of to

say.

Cat-walk = pasarela; rook= corvo/ cuervo; unhindered= libre, sen estorbos/ sin estorbos

máxima do 50% do total atribuíble á puntuación correspondente a cada pregunta ou cuestión, así que debe

interpretarse que non necesariamente a puntuación debe ser un 0,5.

Opción A

1. The text is about Patrick Smith, who has a column in an on-line magazine in which he answers

people’s questions about air-travel. Some of these questions are about things like airplane toilets or air-

conditioning. But most people ask about airport security or the danger of different routes and airports.

2. a) makes a living b) risk c) confiscating d) inconvenienced

3. a) Patrick Smith, who is a pilot, writes for the on-line magazine Salon.com. / Patrick Smith,

whowrites for the on-line magazine Salon.com.,is a pilot.

b) Some people asked if crews emptied/empty the contents of the toilet over people’s houses.

c) If you concentrate on these irrelevant things, you are wasting/ you waste time and

resources.

d) More attention is required for/ in some routes and airports than for /in others.

4. a) The things that make people afraid of flying are/ whether the airport is safe or not/ airport

security and the danger of some routes and airports.

b) Because this gives people false sense of security/ makes people think that airports are

safe, but really it is irrelevant and does not contribute to solving the problem of terrorist

attacks.

5. My favourite means of transport is the airplane, because it can take you to far-away places in a

very short time. You would probably never go to America or to places like Singapore or Australia if you

had to travel by ship and spend weeks on the journey. Travelling by plane has certain disadvantages, of

course, like having to wait for long periods of time in airports, especially when there are strikes, and also

having very little room in the airplane, which is very uncomfortable on long journeys. But I really love it

when the airplane takes off and lands.

Opción B

1. Some aspects of old Scottish culture which are still present today are kilts, which are worn by

young men, especially at rugby matches, bagpipes, often heard in town centres and haggis, which you can

find in most supermarkets. Furthermore, the Scots still hold ceilidhs and love to dance Scottish reels.

2. a) Kilts b)Scottish reel c) outsells d)hangover

3. a) The writer advised us to keep our eyes open for haggis in restaurants and pubs.

b) At most weddings the Scots prefer country dancing to a disco.

c)Tours and Scottish entertainment are provided by language centres as part of their courses.

d) Perhaps if you had enough money you would/could/ might even buy a kilt.

4. a) This passage is written for young people who are interested in improving their English,

because it talks about the entertainment provided by language centres, about returning home with better

English and about two-week language courses.

b) There are many things a visitor may not expect, for example, that a haggis is not an animal but a food,

and that nowadays you can buy it in supermarkets. These days, not every Scottish person plays the

bagpipes and wears a kilt (which may be very expensive). There are also some other traditional things

that foreigners don’t know, such as the ceilidh, Irn Bru and shortbread.

5. I have never done a language course abroad, but I did once spend a month in Avignon, in the

South of France, working in a hostel making beds and clearing tables and so on. It was quite hard work,

but I enjoyed myself a lot because I met a lot of young people from all over the world. However, I didn’t

improve my French very much because everyone spoke English, so I practiced this language instead.

6. Listening: 1) a, 2) b, 3) a, 4) b, 5) c, 6) a, 7) b, 8) a, 9) c, 10) b

Opción A

1. The text is about Steve Thiele, who established a Guinness World Record in blindfolded waterskiing.

This record was particularly notable because Thiele was actually blind, and because he achieved the

record in very difficult conditions on the open sea.

2. a) challenging b) raise c) weird d) margin

3. a) Blindfolded waterskiing, which only the bravest and most experienced waterskiers dare to do,

is a difficult sport.

b) The skier isn’t able to see the route or water over which they are skiing.

c) A new world record has been set by Steve Thiele in an effort to raise money for Cancer

Research UK.

d) Thiele said that it was great to get a world record and that he was very happy to have

completed the challenge.

4. a) Because a blind person can’t see, so s/he doesn’t need a blindfold.

b) That the person who set it was blind, and that the conditions in which it was set were very

difficult, as it was open sea with very strong currents.

5. A really successful athlete,like a really successful musician, has to work very hard for long hours a day

and is also exposed to the stress of competition, so from this point of view maybe they do deserve to earn

a lot of money. Also, in many cases, like that of RafaNadal and the players in the Spanish football team

or Cristiano Ronaldo, it must be admitted that they provide a lot of entertainment and escapism for a lot

of people. But in spite of this, I really think that the enormous amounts of money which some of them

get are almost indecent, especially today, when many normal people are losing their jobs or having their

salaries reduced.

Opción B

1. The passage is about a woman who, very stressed by her life as a model, is relaxing in the country, by a

lake. Suddenly a storm begins, and she has to hurry home to a cottage. When she arrives there, she finds

an unknown and unpleasant-looking man standing in her kitchen.

2. a) soothe/ quiet b) ripples c) thunder d) odd

3. a) Her mind was soothed by its soft, dark water.

b) Not only did she feel at peace, but she also felt/ but also unhindered and free.

c) After she had gathered/ gathering her things together, she made for the cottage.

d) A man, who was skinny, cadaverous and unwelcome, stood in the kitchen.

4. a) Because she feels very stressed by her job as a model.

b) S/he is referring to the thin clouds which came before the thicker clouds of the storm.

5. “Hello!” the stranger replied, looking at her nervously. “I need your help. I’ve just escaped from

Pentonville prison, and the police are looking for me. I have to find a place to hide! I saw that your door

was open, and, as this is a very lonely place, I came in. Please, please help me, or they will catch me and

torture me, and take me back to prison!” “Oh, no!” she thought, “I really can’t face a thing like this”. But

the man before her was wearing only a t-shirt and thin jeans, and it was beginning to pour with rain

outside. Also, there was an expression in his eyes that made her feel sorry for him. “O.K.” she said, “but

you can’t stay here for long. As soon as the rain stops, you must go. I don’t want problems with the

police”.
