Read the passage and choose the suitable word to fill in the blanks.

It can take a long time to become successful in your chosen field, however talented you are. One thing you have to be of is that you will face criticism along the way. The world is full of people who would rather say something negative than positive. If you’ve made up your to achieve a certain goal, such as writing a novel, the negative criticism of others prevent you from reaching your target, and let the constructive criticism have a positive on your work. If someone says you’re totally in the lack of talent, ignore them. That’s negative criticism. If, however, someone advises you to revise your work and gives you a good reason for doing so, you should consider their suggestions carefully. There are many film stars were once out of work. There are many famous novelists that made a complete mess of their first novel – or who didn’t, but had to keep on approaching hundreds of publishers before they could get it published. Being successful  luck, to a certain extent. But things are more likely to turn out well if you persevere and stay positive.

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

Linguists believe that early men used many gestures to communicate with one another. This, it is thought, was man’s first form of communication and the only one he had used for a long period of time. Even today we use some sign language: for example, we shake our head to indicate 'yes' or 'no', we point and we wave, and so on.

The first spoken words may have been early man’s attempt to copy the sounds made by animals. Then he may have developed sounds of his own. Gradually, man may have repeated certain sounds so often that they became familiar and understandable to others. Once spoken language had begun, perhaps man invented new words as he needed them to express himself verbally or to name new objects. The next stage is that man came to write down what he spoke. In this way we can imagine language growing.

By using words, parents were able to teach them to their children. The children in turn probably made up new words. Each generation, therefore, in the development of language, knew more words than the generation before it. Language is still growing and changing. Can you think of some words that you use today that were not used by your parents or grandparents when they were children?
