In some cases the indications are clear: skipped meals, lack of sleep, strained Cô Luận 0904 678 029 relationships, etc., but in others the symptoms are more subtle Obsessive users may check and recheck their email boxes unnecessarily They may deceive themselves, and others, about how long they actually spend online session They might even rush to their PC’s the minute they have the house to themselves, relieved that others are not there to pass judgement What, though, can those who recognize they have a problem actually about it? The first thing is not to paniC One expert points out that many people spend an enormous amount of time reading, say, or talking on the telephone, sometimes to the detriment of family relationships Yet nobody talks about “book addiction”, or “phone addiction” as if they were in some way akin to chronic alcoholism or heavy smoking If they are cutting themselves off, so this theory goes, it is because of a weak relationship Going online is merely one way, like turning on the TV or going out for a drink, of avoiding conversation with those at home The problem is the relationship, not the computer Where an addiction genuinely does exist, the advice is to seek professional help similar to that for sufferers of other compulsive disorders This consists of gradually reducing the time spent online, as well as dealing with any personal difficulties that may underlie the condition Other experts advise the addict to talk to support groups specifically formed to help people with the problem of Internet overuse Ironically, these groups can currently only be contacted via the Internet 6.What did the study discover?

We’re destroying words – scores of them, hundreds of them, every day We’re cutting the language down to the bone The Eleventh Edition won’t contain a single word that will become obsolete before the year 2050.” He bit hungrily into his bread and swallowed a couple of mouthfuls, then continued speaking, with a sort of pedant’s passion His thin dark face had become animated, his eyes had lost their mocking expression and grown almost dreamy “It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds of nouns that can be got rid of as well It isn’t only the synonyms; there are also the antonyms After all, what justification is there for a word which is simply the opposite of some other word? A word contains its opposite in itself Take “good”, for instance If you have a word like “good”, what need is there for a word like “bad”? “Ungood” will just as well – better, because it’s an exact opposite, which the other is not Or again, if you want a stronger version of “good”, what sense is there in having a whole string of vague useless words like “excellent” and “splendid” and all the rest of them? “Plusgood” covers the meaning, or “double-plusgood” if you want something stronger still Of course we use those forms already But in the final version of Newspeak there’ll be nothing else In the end the whole notion of goodness and badness will be covered by only six words – in reality, only one word Don’t you see the beauty of that, Winston? It was B.B.’s idea originally, of course,” he added as an afterthought A sort of vapid eagerness flitted across Winston’s face at the mention of Big Brother Nevertheless, Syme immediately detected a certain lack of enthusiasm “You haven’t a real appreciation of Newspeak, Winston,” he said almost sadly “Even when you write it you’re still thinking of Oldspeak I’ve read some of those pieces that you write in “The Times” occasionally They’re good enough, but they’re translations In your heart you’d prefer to stick to Oldspeak, with all its vagueness and its useless shades of meaning You don’t grasp the beauty of the destruction of words Do you know that Newspeak is the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year?” Winston did know that, of course He smiled, sympathetically he hoped, not trusting himself to speak Syme bit off another fragment of the dark-colored bread, chewed it briefly, and went on: “Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible because there will be no words in which to express it Every concept that can 11 Cô Luận 0904 678 029 ever needed, will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten Already, in the Eleventh Edition, we’re not far from that point But the process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller Even now, of course, there’s no reason or excuse for committing thoughtcrime It’s merely a question of self-discipline, reality-control But in the end there won’t be any need even for that The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect Newspeak is Ingsoc and Ingsoc is Newspeak,” he added with a sort of mystical satisfaction “Has it ever occurred to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?” (Extracted from science fiction “1984”) 45.It is most likely that Winston and Syme are A: in an office B: in a library C: in a cafeteria D: at school 46.Syme likes A: to shout B: talking about his work C: the food D: hearing Winston’s opinion 47.What kind of words are being the most greatly reduced? A: nouns B: verbs and adjectives C: everything except antonyms 12 Cô Luận 0904 678 029 D: adjectives 48.What can be gathered about Winston’s attitude towards Newspeak? A: He studies it eagerly B: He is outspokenly against it C: He finds it exciting D: He accepts it unhappily 49.Which of the following best describes Newspeak? A: It is a historical language being reconstructed B: It was invented to help citizens escape an oppressive government C: It is a new language that is incredibly difficult to learn D: It is a highly simplified language designed to prevent thought 50.What kind of future does Syme imagine? A: People will not have enough language to think at all B: People will be safe because there will be no violent crime C: Everyone will be better educated D: People will communicate better and more effectively 51.What is Syme working on? A: The adjectives of the Dictionary B: Bread and cheese C: Thoughtcrime D: science fiction novel 52.According to Syme, his job is to help A: invent new B: publish a dictionary worlds words C: destroy D: investigate an ancient 53.What does the phrase cutting the language down to the bone mean? A: cutting down severely on the language B: differentiating one language from another C: slowing down the development of the language D: dividing the language into different sectors 54.Syme mentioned the word “good” as an example of the fact that A: a word contains its opposite in itself B: there is a need for the word “bad” C: “plusgood” is stronger than “double-plusgood” D: “bad” and “ungood” are equally necessary 13 Cô Luận 0904 678 029 Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks SCHOOL LUNCH Research has (55) that over half the children in Britain who take their own lunches to school not eat (56) in the middle of the day In Britain schools have to (57) meals at lunchtime Children can (58) to bring their own food or have lunch at the school canteen One shocking (59) of this research is that school meals are much healthier than lunches prepared by parents There are strict standards for the preparation of school meals, which have to include one (60) of fruit and one of vegetables, as well as meat, a dairy item and starchy food like bread or pasta Lunchboxes (61) by researchers contained sweet drinks, crisps, and chocolate bars Children (62) twice as much sugar as they should at lunchtime The research will provide a better (63) of why the percentage of overweight students in Britain has (64) in the last decade 55.A: spoken B: said C: told D: shown 56.A: properly B: approximately C: possibly D: correctly 57.A: provide B: make 14 Cô Luận 0904 678 029 C: D: take 58.A: choose B: like C: prefer D: want 59.A: finding B: factor C: fact D: figure 60.A: percentage B: kilo C: portion D: bowl 61.A: taken B: tested C: examined D: looked 15 Cô Luận 0904 678 029 62.A: take B: consume C: consist D: bring 63.A: reason B: knowledge C: opinion D: understanding 64.A: increased B: extended C: raised D: added 16 Cô Luận 0904 678 029 Finish each of the following sentences in such a way that it means the same as the sentence printed before it Question 1: Why don’t you go on a package tour?
