You can also sign up to help at a local soup kitchen: most cities have a mission of some kind, helping food to the homeless and offering temporary shelter.

 

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Today, in many parts of the world, it is customary for people to shake hands upon meeting as a gesture of goodwill. Originally, however, the practice of shaking hands has a more practical purpose.

Shaking hands originated in medieval times. In those days, when a man came on a stranger, he would often automatically reach for his sword with his right hand, in case he had to use the weapon to defend himself. Sometimes, both parties found themselves circling around each other, weapons in hand, until it was mutually agreed that the weapons could be laid aside. Then, the two parties extended their right hands to show they had no weapons and clasped them. This was the beginning of the handshake.

The custom of shaking hands is not a universal one. In the Orient, people have, for centuries, clasped their own hands in front of them upon meeting to show that they held no weapons. In France, a custom developed in which people who met would kiss each other on both cheeks. The natives of some South Seas islands greet by rubbing noses.

What could be the best title for the passage?

 
  • A gesture originating in the past
  • One way to maintain peace
  • Gestures with multiple purposes
  • Polite ways to treat other people
The phrase "came on" in the second paragraph can be best replaced by _____.
  • waited for
  • visited
  • attacked
  • happened to meet
The word "them" refers to _____.
  • the two parties' weapons
  • the two parties' left hands
  • the two parties
  • the two parties' right hands

At first, the purpose of shaking hands was _____.

  • to show a good relationship with each other
  • to show that there were no weapons in hands
  • to show that both parties were ready for a fight
  • a gesture of goodwill

Which of the following is NOT true about the handshake?

  • It happened for the first time very long time ago.
  • It is a gesture of goodwill.
  • It is very popular all over the world.
  • It is one of the social customs.

Read the passage then choose the correct answer to each question.

In the 1960s, it took pop and rock groups one or two days to record their songs. Nowadays, it can take months and months. Many rock groups begin by recording only one instrument, for example, the voice. Then they record other instruments – electric piano, synthesizer, guitars, drums and so on.

Next, they might use a computer to add special effects. Finally, they ‘mix’ all the instruments until they get the sound that they want. This means that a CD or cassette will always sound very different from a live concert.

Music engineers have developed a new computer program that will change the future of music. A computer can analyze a singer’s voice. Then if you give the computer the lyrics and music of a song, the computer can ‘sing’ it in that voice. This means that a singer only needs to record one song and the computer can then sing other songs in the singer’s own voice. Singers can sing new songs many years after they have died.

Most of us listen to music for pleasure, but for the record companies, music is a product, the same as soap powder. When a record company finds a new group (or ‘band’), they first try to develop the band’s ‘profile’. They will try to create an ‘image’ for the band that they think will attract young people. Instead of allowing the band’s full artistic freedom, they will often tell the band what they should wear, what they should say and how they should sing and play.

In recent years, many rock groups have started their own record companies because they say that the big companies are too commercial.
