Read the text and choose the best answer to fill in the blanks.

   It’s quite rare to meet teenagers who don’t like sports. When you are young, you know how important it is to physical exercise if you want to be healthy and strong, and for that reason, you often concentrate on just one sport with so much enthusiasm that in the end, you can’t live it. The problem is, though, that as you grow up you have less and less spare time. At your age you have to study harder you want to get good marks to go to university, with perhaps only one afternoon a week to do any sport. This happens just when you are at the best age for many sports, such as gymnastics and swimming. By the time you finish all your studies you will probably be too old to be really good at sports like those, but if you spend enough time on while you are young, then one day you will find that you are very good at your sport but too old to study, and you will find it to get a good job. Somehow, it doesn’t seem fair.

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

   If we took a look at how people in Europe communicated just one hundred years ago, we would be very surprised to find out that English was hardly used outside the United Kingdom. The language most commonly used between people of different nationalities, and particularly the aristocracy, was French. In fact, French was the language of diplomacy, culture and education. However, that is not the case nowadays. English has replaced French as the international language of communication. Today, there are more people who speak English as a second language than people who speak it as a first language.

   There are many reasons why English has become the language of international communication. Britain’s colonization of many parts of the world had something to do with it, but it is mainly due to America’s rise to the position of major world power. This helped spread popular American culture throughout the world bringing the language with it.

   But is it good that English has spread to all parts of the world so quickly? Language specialists seem to be divided over this issue. There are those who claim that it is important to have a language that the people in our increasingly globalized world have in common. According to others, English is associated with a particular culture and therefore promotes that culture at the expense of others. Linguists have suggested “Esperanto”, an artificially put-together language, as a solution to international communication problems but without success. So English will continue being the world language until some other language, maybe Chinese, which is the most widely-spoken native language in the world, takes over as the world’s international language instead of English.

What does the word “which” in paragraph 3 refer to ?
  • Esperanto
  • English
  • a language
  • Chinese

What is the main reason why English has become the language of international communication?

  • Britain’s becoming an international power
  • America’s becoming powerful

What is TRUE according to the passage?

  • Esperanto is difficult to learn.
  • Esperanto is not a natural language.
  • The linguists don’t like Esperanto.
  • Esperanto is becoming more and more popular.

What would be a good title for this passage?

  • English language means English culture
  • English - a difficult language to learn
  • English as an international language
  • English in the future

According to the passage, what was the most commonly used language a century ago?

  • Chinese
  • French
