For some reason we think that blue and white is clean, while we think of green products as being a bit disgusting It‟s the same for businesses We respect a company which writes its name in blue or black, but we don‟t respect one that uses pink or orange People who design new products can use these ideas to influence what we buy.‟ During this four-part series, Verity studies eight different colours, two colours in each programme She meets people who work in all aspects of the colour industry, from people who design food packets, to people who name the colours of lipsticks Some of the people she meets clearly have very little scientific knowledge to support their ideas, such as the American „Colour Doctor‟ who believes that serious diseases can be cured by the use of coloured lights However, she also interviews real scientists who are studying the effects of green and red lights on mice, with some surprising results Overall, it‟s an interesting show, and anyone who watches it will probably find out something new But because Verity is goes out of her way to be polite to everyone she meets on the series, it‟s up to the viewers to make their own decisions about how much they should believe What is the writer doing in this text? A giving information about how colours influence us B reporting what happens in a new television series C giving information about a television presenter D giving his opinion of a recent television show According to Verity, why is a knowledge of colour important? A It can help you to choose the best products B It can give you new ideas C It can help you to change people‟s minds D It can help you to sell products Who does the writer respect least? A Verity Allen B The people who name lipsticks C The „Colour Doctor‟ D The scientists who work with mice Which of the following would make a good title for the text? A Enjoy it, but don‟t believe everything B Another great show from Verity Allen! Five Stars! C Don‟t miss this if you work in Business! D Watch this programme!

Television, however, is the obvious place to go in search of lost readers There is hardly much point using the public library or the local bookshop to promote reading, as those who don‟t read rarely enter either, and probably associate both with the school classroom, and consequently with activities which are boring Today, whether we like it or not, film and television are the point of entry for large numbers of people into the delights of storytelling and the appreciation of a good plot Think how many people have bought copies of the „book of the TV drama‟ This phenomenon took one nineteenth-century novel to number one in the bestsellers‟ list recently When I was a student in the 1960s, I was taught that popular culture – pulp fiction and romance – manipulated the working classes, persuading them to be obedient to those above them, making them want less in life and be happy with second best Now, I believe that argument was a piece of appalling elitism All those who consume popular culture know exactly what its effect on them is In our media-aware society, each of us makes a decision whether to „buy in‟ and join the crowd, or stay out and be different Soap operas are the place where huge numbers of adults and young people alike tap into the common concerns of everyday life Say – time viewers turn to them for companionship, treating every desperate choice to be made by the characters as their own The popularity of an individual program depends on the script – writers catching the mood of the general public Plots are tightly steered towards the things we care about, from the trivial ups and downs of our personal relationships to the shame of domestic violence Of course, there is always the danger that those in authority might try to take over our minds via our favorite forms of entertainment But I think we can rely on the fact that political messages, however cleverly put across, always appear bossy and aggressive That‟s why we usually vote with our feet during a party political broadcast, whatever the party The joy of fiction, on the other hand – and the soap is, after all a form of modern fiction – is that it is bound to adapt its‟ public information‟ material, in order to create emotional intensity pace and drama Under these conditions, indoctrination cannot occur When the soap opera Coronation Street shows a father who dropped out of school being caught off guard by his five – year – old son, unable to read his bedtime story book, nobody watching is being forced to enroll in adult reading classes But if a few dads recognize that they are not alone in having to memorize the text of a favorite story so as to keep their child‟s respect, so much the better What does „this‟ in line refer to? a raising reading standards b reaching a wider public c giving books to babies d working with TV producers Using a library to encourage reading is ineffective because ………………… a people prefer to go to bookshops b it reminds people of being at school c people find library activities boring d it fails to get to the right people One effect of television is that it ………………… a attracts a lot more viewers than previously b makes people watch things they don‟t enjoy c encourages people to write their own stories d increases the sales of some related books What was the writer told about popular culture as a student? a It reduced certain people‟s expectations b It has a bad influence on the whole society c It discouraged people from working hard d It made the lower classes too argumentative According to the writer, some people watch soap operas because they ………………… a help them to make their own decisions b know they can depend on the plots c prevent them from feeling too lonely d can talk about them with other people How does a soap opera achieve success? a by accurately reflecting people‟s thoughts and feelings GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL! b through the inclusion of violent and shocking scenes c by using a number of different script – writers d through careful control of the final recordings Why does the writer say that indoctrination cannot occur in soap operas? a They not put across political messages well b There is not enough time to include any argument c There is no direct attempt to tell people what to d They cannot change the information to fit the drama What would be the best title for this article? a How develop a successful storyline b The role of television drama in reading c New government funding for soap operas d What is bad about popular culture today IX Complete the second sentence so that it has a similar meaning to the first sentence, using the word given Do not change the word given (2 points) They started building the new supermarket two years ago (construction)  The new _ past two years It was almost dark when we got home (until)  Not home If you want to succeed, you need to make good use of the things you are good at (play)  You have if you want to succeed I quite like snails, but they wouldn‟t be my first choice (averse)  Although I , they wouldn‟t be my first choice He hated the way the media scrutinized his private life (came)  He hated _ from the media X Writing (3points) Natural disasters are now becoming more and more severe and have caused more damage to human life and property than ever In your opinion, to what extent are humans responsible for this?

15 Different colours can affect us in many different ways; that‟s according to Verity Allen In her new series „Colour me Healthy‟, Verity looks at the ways that colours can influence how hard we work and the choices we make They can even change our emotions and even influence how healthy we are „Have you ever noticed how people always use the same colours for the same things?‟ says Verity „Our toothpaste is always white or blue or maybe red It‟s never green Why not? For some reason we think that blue and white is clean, while we think of green products as being a bit disgusting It‟s the same for businesses We respect a company which writes its name in blue or black, but we don‟t respect one that uses pink or orange People who design new products can use these ideas to influence what we buy.‟ During this four-part series, Verity studies eight different colours, two colours in each programme She meets people who work in all aspects of the colour industry, from people who design food packets, to people who name the colours of lipsticks Some of the people she meets clearly have very little scientific knowledge to support their ideas, such as the American „Colour Doctor‟ who believes that serious diseases can be cured by the use of coloured lights However, she also interviews real scientists who are studying the effects of green and red lights on mice, with some surprising results Overall, it‟s an interesting show, and anyone who watches it will probably find out something new But because Verity is goes out of her way to be polite to everyone she meets on the series, it‟s up to the viewers to make their own decisions about how much they should believe What is the writer doing in this text?
