Exam Guide

Level 82

issued bY the Council of Europe, Passing a Euro exam indicates that the candidate can undertake a varietY of rea|-lie tasks in English. tn the Euro exams we test language skills and systems together - there are no separate oral and written examinations.
ManY of the tasks - just like the use of language in rea|-|ife situations - require the simultaneous use of various sPeaking-listening and writing-reading sub-skills. For this reason candidates cannot take the tests seParatelY. ln the assessment of writing and speaking, accuracy is of course tested, but more weight is given tO the candidate's ability to convey a message clearly and appropriately without omitting any relevant details, This integrated-skills and task_baso apprach is in line wit current views and standards throughout Europ.

The Euro exams test communicative competence by testing success in real communication; The Exam tasks are directlY based on the Common Euroiean Fiamework o Reference for Languages

ln order to pass candidates are expected to achieve 65% of the total marks available, as well as obtaining at least 4O% o the marks in each individual test, These thresholds,will vary slightly between examinations depending of the dificulty o the tasks,

The Isle of Man


Situated midway between England, and lreland, the Isle of Man is a sleepy haven of peace and tranquillity. The island also has something for lovers of the fast-paced too, hosting the world famous Tourist Trophy motorcycle races and other motor sport events for which the island is internationally renowned.

Example: Paragraph "D" is the best heading

we}l-maintained footpaths. As well as enjoying a wide range of country pursuits o sea sports, visitors can go back to another era by experiencing one of the Isle of Man's vintage transport systems - steam railway, electric tram or horse tram. T. The island's history dates back more than 10,000 years. In 1997 a new 6 million heritage centre, the House of Manannan, opened in Peel, on the Island's west coast. It provides information about a variety of historical sights ranging from Celtic monuments to the best preserved medieval fortress in Britain - Castle Rushen. A]l these sights are accessible to tourists. 8. The Isle of Man was also the birthplace of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Sir William Hillary, the founder, got his idea for the senrice after moving to the Island in 1808. From his Fort Anne mansion overlooking Douglas Bay, he was aware of the treacherous nature of the Irish Sea with many boats being wrecked around the Island's coast. He drew up plans for a lifeboat service run by trained crews.

600 miles of uncluttered road,s criss-cross breathtaking scenery as do many

g. Initialty he received little response from the Admiralty but on appealing to the more philanthropic members of tondon society, the plans Were

enthusiastically adopted and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution for the preservation ot Lifg from Shipwrect 1*r,i"r, later became the RNLI) was founded tn1824, l0.At the age of 60, Sir William took part in the rescue of the Royal Mail Steam packet St. George, which foundered on Conister Rock at the entrance to Douglas harbour, He command,ed the lifeboat and everyone aboard the St George was rescued with no loss of life. The experience prompted him to buitd the Tower of Refuge on Conister Rock. Completed in 1832, the tower provided shelter for shipwrecked mariners until the lifeboat could reach them. Until recently, the tower was constantly kept supplied with fresh bread and water. tl.The Isle of Man is ideally placed for yachtsmen to visit en route from Scotland or lreland, and take shelter in one of the Isle of Man's PrettY harbours. However, there is easy access by air o sea. Major carriers are: The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company which operates passenger and ferries between the ports of Douglas and Heysham/Liverpool. and Manx Airlines, which operates regular flights from many UK airports including Heathrow, Luton, Liverpool, as well as Dublin.

In Hollywood, a town where marriages fade faster than a bad movie, actors Paul Newman and Joanne 7oodward are as famous for their marital success as for their Oscars. How have they
managed to stay together or 44 years?

It probably helps that they live in Connecticut, not in fantasyland. They also share a profession, three grown children and an interest in philanthropy. Even the stars favour this glamorous couple. "You stimulate each other's intellect," says a eb astrologer, looking ovef the couple's 2002 horoscopes. "You challenge each other's world view. At times you may read each other's minds and finish each other's sentences. You can be a mentally and technically creative team."
Newman and floodward also sponsor the Sazle tbe Children foster parent campaign and a camp for children with life-threatening illnesses. In 1982Newman set up a multimillion-dollar corPoration that markets everything from popcorn to spaghetti sauce. All profits go to charity.

Task Four: Reading for detailed information (l0

Read the foltowing text about smoking and answer the multipte-choice questions.

By Caren Benjamin
Nobody smokes in Catherine Nagle's house. Nobody. When smokers come to visit, she hands them an ashtray and tells them to step outside if they want to have a cigarette. She won't even make an
exception for her mothpr-in-law

though her husband made her break the news.

Nagle believes the fact that her 16-year-old son doesn't smoke, despite typical teenage peer pressure, is thanks largely to the household's total smoking ban. "I think the fact that we won't let his grandmother or aunts or,uncles smoke in the house shows how firmly we believe that smoking is bad," she says. "He sees that we think it's wrong for adults to do it so he won't think'it's something I can do when I get to be l8 when it's legal."' study in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests she is on the right track, The study found that a total ban on smoking in the home is the most effective way to keep teenagers from picking up the habit. Whether or not parents smoke is still the most important factor, but the JAMA study found children of non-smoking parents who let other people smoke in their home are almost as likely to become smokers as kids from homes where at least one parent smokes and there is a total
ban.

Ideally, the home smoking ban should be in place when your child is born. Aside from the obvious health reasons, there are good sociological reasons for this. If you've got young children, then usually it's not difficult for parents to ask relatives not to smoke in the house. Grandparents, uncles and friends think that's a right that parents have. By the time the child is 15 or 17, it's a much harder sell, in fact by that age it's probably not worth the fight. Even in a household where one parent smokes, a total ban can still be very effective, If muln makes dad smoke on the porch, and dad agrees to do so, that's a pretty significant message to kids about the dangers of smoking and about the fact that even the adult smoker knows the behaviour is dangerous.

As an added bonus, for smokers who are forced outside their homes to smoke, the habit

becomes something they have to consciously clroose to do. They think to themselves "'.Do I want to get up and have a cigarette, or do I want to stay here and finish watclring this TV show?" As often as not, they clroose the TV show. As nicotine consumption decreases, so does addiction level, eventually making it easier for tlte parent to quit smoking.

Task One: Rats - Questions

Read the English text. For each question choose the Hungarian sentence which summarises the text most accurately.

study shows rats dream about running mazes


Researchers say they have entered the dreams of rats and found them running through the same lab mazes they negotiate during the day. It is evidence not just that animals dream, but that they replay events much the way humans do, and they may use their dreams to learn or memorise.

The findings could evenfually help researchers understand how the human mind works. "It's really opening a new door into the study of dreams,'' said professor Matt Wilson, leader of the study. But Robert Stickgold, Professor of Psychiatry, said there is no way to prove researchers Were seeing rats dream, "If a rat could tell us, 'YeS, i *u, dreaming about running around the track,'then we'd have it nailed down.'' The scientists had the rats perform specific tasks in a maze that produced very distinctive patterns of brain activity. When they repeatedly saw almost exactly the same patterns reproduced during sleep, they concluded the rats were dreaming about running through the maze.
The discovery of similarities between human and animal dreams could help scientists to use the rats to learn more about the human mind. scientisti could manipulate the rats' experiences in a way that is not permissible with people.
