Carla and Tom’s anniversary

Our anniversary was special this year – we’ve been married for ten years. We decided it would be best to have a more formal celebration. First, we thought we’d have a sit-down dinner with three courses. But we quickly realized it was too expensive. Instead, we had a simple reception with starters that we made ourselves and served on plates we borrowed from friends. Tom’s parents let us use their wonderful garden for the event. It was beautiful!

Sarah’s reward dinner

I was surprised when my university decided to hold this dinner for me. They gave me a prize for the best scientific research and invited my colleagues and other scientists in my field. It was a grand evening. The room was decorated beautifully, the waiters were smart and the food was delicious. There was a seating plan and speeches. I’ll certainly never forget it – other events I’ve attended were always more casual.

Samuel’s birthday party

I love the James Bond films, so I decided to ask everyone to come dressed up as their favourite James Bond character for my 18th birthday party. I have some mad friends and they really made an effort with their costumes. My family was there too, and we played music from the movies. Even though everyone was dressed in formal suits and dresses, it was a relaxed party. People didn’t leave until 3 a.m. – we had so much fun dancing.

Raheem’s graduation

I recently got my PhD in Physics. This is a huge achievement, not only for me but also for my parents who helped me along the way. A lot of the day was spent taking photos of me in my cap and gown. We then went to a fancy restaurant. It was more expensive than the places I normally go to, but I really liked it. There were only a few of us – my siblings, two of my cousins and my parents.

Katerina’s holiday party

I love Christmas – the tree, the decorations, the biscuits. Last year I was away from home and I decided to throw a Christmas party for my friends. Many of my friends come from different parts of the world and don’t necessarily celebrate Christmas, so I called it a holiday party and asked all my guests to bring a dish they love. It was a great night – lots of food, music and laughter. We were all singing carols by the end.

A new life

I used to work as a college lecturer in the north of England, running photography courses. It wasn’t a bad job and I really liked my students, but I began to feel tired of doing the same thing every day. 1. _ (Варіанти:A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H)

I’d always loved travelling, so one weekend I typed ‘international volunteering’ into an internet search engine. At the top of the results page was the opportunity to go and stay on an island in the Indian Ocean, thousands of miles away, and help to protect the beaches and the sea life. 2. _ (Варіанти:A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H) I had some diving experience, and the more I talked about it, the more I wanted to do it. So I contacted the organisation. One week later they offered to send me to the island and I accepted. 3. _ (Варіанти:A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H) After all, the volunteer job was only for two months during the summer holidays. I thought after I’d finished, I’d come home.

As soon as I got to the island, I was sure I’d done the right thing. My first dive was incredible. 4. _ (Варіанти:A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H) I felt so lucky to be able to experience that every day.

In fact I loved it so much that I never came home! I’ve now been on the island for ten years and I have a permanent job. I’m working as a marine educator, teaching volunteers about the sea life and taking them snorkelling and diving. My desk is a picnic table 10 metres from the best beach on the island. Of course not everything about my new life is perfect. 5. _ (Варіанти:A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H) However, I can’t imagine going back to my old life.

A That’s why I knew it was a terrible plan.

B I had trained in icy water in the UK so the crystal clear warm water felt amazing.

C They always ask lots of questions.

D I work far harder than I used to.

E I began joking to friends about sending in an application.

F Afterwards, some people were surprised by my decision but I wasn’t too worried.

G I decided I needed a break.

H I needed to explain that first.

For each question, choose the correct answer.

Artist Peter Fuller talks about his hobby

There’s a popular idea that artists are not supposed to be into sport, but mountain biking is a huge part of my life. It gets me out of my studio, and into the countryside. But more importantly, racing along as fast as you can leaves you no time to worry about anything that’s going on in your life. You’re too busy concentrating on not crashing. The only things you pay attention to are the pain in your legs and the rocks on the path in front of you.

I’m in my sixties now, but I started cycling when I was a kid. In the summer my friends and I would ride our bikes into the woods and see who was brave enough to go down steep hills, or do big jumps. The bikes we had then weren’t built for that, and often broke, so I used to draw pictures of bikes with big thick tyres that would be strong enough for what we were doing. They looked just like modern mountain bikes. However, it wasn’t until many years later that someone actually invented one. By the 1980s, they were everywhere.

At that time I was into skateboarding. I did that for a decade until falling off on to hard surfaces started to hurt too much. Mountain biking seemed a fairly safe way to keep fit, so I took that up instead. I made a lot of friends, and got involved in racing, which gave me a reason to train hard. I wanted to find out just how fit and fast I could get, which turned out to be fairly quick. I even won a couple of local races.

In the end I stopped racing, mainly because I knew what it could mean to my career if I had a bad crash. But I still like to do a three-hour mountain bike ride every week. And if I’m out cycling in the hills and see a rider ahead, I have to beat them to the top. As I go past I imagine how surprised they would be if they knew how old I am.

3. Peter says he returned to cycling after several years _ (Варіанти:A, B, C, D)

4. How does Peter feel about cycling now? _ (Варіанти:A, B, C, D)

B He is keen to do less now that he is older.

D He wishes more people were involved in the sport.
