In the early years of television, educational believed that it would be very useful in teaching and learning. Many schools have bought television sets with the hope that teachers can take full advantage of them to improve the of education; but actually, they are rarely used properly in classrooms. , children spend the majority of their out-of-school hours watching TV and their typical school days proceed as if television did not exist.

There are explanations for the failure of television to get the interest of the teachers.

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

The first language you learn to speak is called your native language. As a baby, you listened to your parents or other people speaking and then imitated the sounds you heard. Babies seem to be born with an ability to learn the language they hear.

Native speakers learn as children to use the right words and arrange them in the right order without even thinking about it. If English is your native language, you know automatically that “I going bed” is wrong, but “I am going to bed” is right. If you learn a second language, you have to memorize its words and learn its rules. That’s why learning a second language can be difficult.

Young children can learn a new language very easily. If they are surrounded by people speaking a different language, they soon learn to speak it as well as their native language. But as people grow older, it becomes more difficult to learn new languages. People gradually lose the ability to learn the grammar and pronounce the sounds of another language. People who learn a new language as adults usually have a “foreign accent” when they speak it.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions.

Naming customs are different around the world. In most cultures, however, people have at least two names: a family name and a given name. Your given name is the name you receive when you are born. Your family name is the name you share with other people in your family. In the United States, the family name is often called the last name, and the given name is often called the first name. However, the order of the two names is not the same everywhere. For example, in many Asian countries, the family name is first and the given name is second. When two people from different cultures meet, sometimes they use the incorrect name. This can cause embarrassment.

Family names can show something about a family's early history. The origin of many English family names is a place, like London, or a job, such as Farmer or Shoemaker. A long time ago, these families probably worked as farmers or shoemakers. Swedish and Danish family names often mean 'son of'. For example, Johansson means son of Johan. In South Korea, there are only about 250 family names. These names go back hundreds of years to very old clans. About half of all Koreans have one of the three most common family names - Kim, Park, or Lee.

There is generally no choice about a family name, but there is much more choice about given names. Parents choose their child's name for many different reasons. They may select a name that sounds beautiful or means something special. These names may have meanings like peace or happiness. In some cultures, there may be a connection between children's names and when or how they were born. For example, a Yoruba child in Nigeria might have a name like Sunday or Born on a Sunny Day. In some countries, parents may pay money to a professional baby namer to help them find a good name. They want to find a name that will be lucky for their child.
