The stronger man

Many, many years ago there was a man in England who was very strong. Everyone knew him. He often said, "If I ever meet anyone who is stronger than I am, I'm going to give him all the money in my purse."

One day as he was riding somewhere, his horse lost a shoe.

When the man came to the nearest town, he asked for someone who could shoe his horse.

The smith in that town was very strong, too. The man told the smith to bring him some of the best horseshoes he had.

When the smith brought him some horseshoes, the strong man looked at them, took one of them and said, "This is a bad shoe. It's no good for my horse. Haven't you got anything better? Look!" And he took it in his strong hands and broke it easily. The smith looked at him, but said nothing. Then he brought another horseshoe. The man took it and broke it as easily as the first one. The smith brought him a third one. The strong man broke it too and then said, "I see that you haven't got any good horseshoes. Don't you see that I need something really good for my horse? Bring me one more and I'll go." The smith brought a fourth shoe and the strong man gave him some coins.

The smith looked at the coins, took one and said, "This is a bad coin. Haven't you got anything better? Look!" He took the coin between his fingers and broke it into two. It was now the strong man's turn to be surprised. He didn't say anything, but gave the smith another coin. The smith broke it, too. The man gave him a third coin. The smith broke it like the first two and said, "I see that you haven't got any good coins. Don't you see that I need some really good ones? So give me one more and we'll be quits."

The strong man looked at him and said, "I've promised to give my purse to anyone I meet, who is stronger than I am. Here it is. Take it! It's yours now."

9 клас

І Reading Comprehension.

Elvis Aaron Presley, American singer and actor, One of the most popular entertainers of the 20th century, is renowned as an early pioneer of rock-and-roll music and considered by many to be the genre's greatest performer.

In his youth, Presley attended churches where he was exposed to gospel music. He also listened to blues and country-and-western music and won a talent contest at the age of ten for a rendition of the country ballad "Old Shep".

Following high school, Presley worked as a truck driver. In 1953, while recording some songs as a birthday gift for his mother at a Memphis studio, Presley impressed the studio manager with his unique vocal style, demonstrating both outstanding range and influences of black American music. At age 21 Presley recorded his first songs for a major record label, the Radio Corporation of America, including the original and popular "Heartbreak Hotel".

From 1956 to 1958, Presley starred in four motion pictures, all of which featured his soundtracks. After serving in the United States Armed Forces from 1958 to 1960, Presley appeared in numerous musical films. His public appeal faded during this period as his rebellious image gave way to the more wholesome persona developed in his film roles.

During the 1970s, facing personal difficulties, including a long-term drug dependency, Presley retreated from public appearances and was rarely seen outside his Memphis mansion. His death, a subject of some controversy, has been officially attributed to heart failure, a likely result of Presley's chronic overuse of prescription barbiturates.

Known as the King of Western Bop and the Hillbilly Cat, Presley fused sounds of country music with black rhythm-and-blues influences and what was then the new rock-and-roll style. His unprecedented, electrically charged performances helped make Presley one of the first mass idols of United States popular culture.

І Reading Comprehension.

Buenos Aires

I may live in a South American city, but it has as much in common with European cities as it does with other cities on this continent. Most people live in apartment blocks with open balconies - much like Madrid, Paris or Rome - and the city's 9th de Julio street is the world's widest avenue.

For this country, the city is huge - about a third of the country's population lives in its metropolitan area. It is a lively place to live, especially at nighttime. Most people go out to eat around 11pm, and then hit the bars around lam. And nightclubs don't even open until 3am!

There is a big dance scene here, and tango is currently making a comeback as young people pick up this traditional form of dance that was born here.

Football is another big passion. Maradona, possibly the best player ever, was born in Boca, one of the poorer districts on the southern outskirts of the city. Maradona used to play for the football club Boca Juniors and he is almost treated like a god here. Another area of the city is home to River Plate, another successful football club that is known as "the millionaire's club," since the players earn so much money.

Two years ago, the city was in turmoil. The country's debt was out of control after the government had borrowed more and more from lenders overseas, and the economy had been poorly managed for years. As a desperate measure, the currency was devalued by two-thirds of its value. People reacted angrily as their savings and properties were suddenly worth so little. Over that Christmas/New Year period, the streets were filled with ordinary people protesting. When some of the protests turned into riots, the authorities hit back with tear gas and showers of rubber bullets. It was chaos* and for the first time, serious crimes -including murder - became commonplace.

Thankfully, the tension of those times has died down, and it feels like a peaceful, safe city again. With the devalued peso, most people can no longer afford to travel or buy things from abroad but they are getting on with their lives. With our new President, there is a feeling of optimism for the future. Nevertheless, you can still see bullet holes in buildings, and many of our monuments are daubed with graffiti written by angry protesters.

Directions: For each of the questions 1—10 decide which of the answers (a, b, c; or d) best Complete the statements on the basis of what is stated or implied in the text and mark the corresponding letter (a, b, c or d).

І Reading Comprehension.

Keep On Dancing

After forty-five minutes of dancing the bell rang. The dancers left the dance floor and slowly headed for the beds in the next room. Fifteen minutes later, the bell rang again and the weary dancers straggled back to the dance floor. All day and all night, the same dancers continued to dance. Weeks passed and they kept on dancing. They were called dance marathons and people were crazy about them in the 1930s. In the longest marathon, the dancing went on for 5,148 hours or nearly 215 days. It was just after the stock market crash of 1929 in the United States. The Great Depression that followed affected everyone, and thousands of people were out of jobs. For some young people, entering a dance marathon was simply a way to earn money for food. As long as they continued to dance, they got food to eat.

The first 500 hours of a dance marathon were the most difficult. Dancers had to get used to sleeping while leaning on their partners. Feet got sore and swollen, and tempers flared as dancers got tired. Three times a day, tables were pulled out onto the dance floor and the dancers ate — while dancing.

For many people, watching a dance marathon was a cheap form of entertainment. At any time of day or night they could go and watch the dancers in the marathon. They yelled and threw money at their favorite dancers to encourage them to keep dancing. Some made bets on who would quit or fall down next.

Dancers in a marathon were pushed to their limits. Without proper sleep, many got sick. When several dancers died from overexertion in а І929 dance marathon, government officials tried unsuccessfully to outlaw marathons. Instead, marathons continued to be popular until the United States entered World War II. The wartime economy brought the country out of the Depression and people finally began to lose interest in dance marathons.
