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

Twitter: 140 Characters to Express Yourself

At the start of the social media revolution, Facebook quickly became the most popular site for sharing information with others. However, it is not the only service that people can use to express themselves. Those who believe in the old saying that “more is less” may want to check out Twitter. Part of Twitter’s appeal is that it limits users to 140 characters whenever they update their status. This forces people to quickly “get to the point” when they are communicating.

Twitter is a microblogging service that was created by four American programmers in 2006. The founders chose the name Twitter because the word has two definitions: “a short burst of information” and “the sound that little birds make”, both of which fit the description of what their service provides. In fact, some people have even labeled Twitter the “SMS of the Internet”. Twitter is not just about words though. Users can also share videos and pictures. Another thing which truly sets Twitter apart from its competition is the hashtag. Hashtags are a special way of labeling and classifying information. They help people interested in a subject to find related posts and content. For example, some interested in sports could simply search for hashtag sports and they would find all messages tagged in this manner.

Twitter has also allowed people to easily connect with others who they would have never had access to in the past. This has enabled fans to interact with their favourite celebrities by following their Twitter updates and sending them direct messages. Of course, there is no guarantee that the famous person will respond, as the celebrities may receive thousands of messages each day. However, there have been some pretty stunning interactions. In 2011, singer Justin Timberlake made headlines when he accepted an invitation from a female soldier to attend a Marine Corps ball. In return, many celebrities find it gratifying to know some of their supporters more closely. However, there is a dark side to Twitter conversations: Some people who don’t think before sending out tweets that can cause outrage by making inappropriate or insensitive remarks.

In November 2013, Twitter went public on the New York Stock Exchange. The added investments should allow the company to do some incredible things in the near future.

  • It helps people focus on what they want to say.

What is the benefit of hashtags?

  • They help users maintain privacy.
  • They help celebrities earn more money.
  • They help people find relevant content more easily.
  • They help sports fans improve their skills.

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

Raising a Child Athlete 

In many countries, children with sporting potential are identified early and encouraged to achieve athletic greatness by training for hours every day. While some people see this as a great opportunity for kids to be healthy, others argue that too much focus on training can hurt young people. How parents should raise child athletes has become a big topic of their debate.

People who are against such serious commitment to sport say that there are many negatives to training so intensively. Here are some of their arguments:

  • The long hours spent training can distant the child from his or her family.
  • Athletes who spend too much time training miss out on education. The child may not be prepared for other real world activities, such as going to college and having a non-athletic job.
  • Pressure from parents and coaches to win can be psychologically damaging for the child. Parents may also become too pushy and end up caring more about athletic achievements than the child.

Dr. Christine Carr, a psychologist, suggests that parents take some important steps to make sure that their kids are getting the most out of sports. Carr says that the focus should be on the child’s happiness and about learning life lessons. Self-discipline, determination, and learning to deal with failure are some of the important life skills and lessons kids can learn from sports. Other experts point to the importance of letting children make their own decisions. Top athletes Tiger Woods and Michael Phelps have said that they appreciated their parents letting them decide how much or how little they wanted to train. In fact, according to Phelps’ mother, he had trouble focusing in the classroom until he found a sport that he was passionate about. By allowing Michael to focus on his sport, his mother also saw him improve as a student.

Another thing that many parents and doctors agree on is the importance of developing a close relationship with the family. Dr. Carr suggests eating dinner together and says it is a simple way to remind children that family is important, and that support can always be found at home. Woods and Phelps both had supportive families and made it public, with parents attending their many competitions.

Raising an athlete is not easy. By balancing life and training, parents can set their children up for success and help them become winners in sports and in life.

  • why training child athletes is wrong
  • when child athletes should begin training
  • how parents can decide if their child would make a good athlete

The purpose of the second paragraph is to _________.

  • examine what child psychologists say
  • list arguments against training young athletes
  • compare arguments for and against training young athletes
  • list bad ways to train children

What best describes Dr. Carr's opinion of children in sports?

  • She thinks sports have the potential to benefit children.
  • She is against children playing sports.
  • She thinks only teenagers should play sports.
  • She thinks sports are good but meaningless for children.

What is said about "failure" in the third paragraph?

  • It should be avoided.
  • It happens when athletes don't train hard enough.
  • It is something child athletes should not think about.
  • It is something children should learn to deal with.

The phrase "the most" in paragraph 3 refers to _________.

  • the highest medals
  • the world's records
  • the most benefits
  • the most serious trainings

Why does the writer use Tiger Woods and Michael Phelps as examples?

  • They are very rich and successful athletes.
  • They had supportive families as child athletes.
  • They have spoken about the dangers of training too hard.
  • They are now raising their children as child athletes.

Why does Dr. Carr say families should eat dinner together at home?

  • because it is an important meal for child athletes
  • because otherwise the children might eat fast food
  • because children should spend their evenings at home
  • because it teaches children the importance of family

Who would find this passage the most useful?
