The school dance

I went to my first school dance last Saturday night and it was a disaster! If only that I’d thought about what I was going to wear a bit more carefully. Although being my best friend Jenny had told me it wasn’t that kind of event, I’d decided to have look really grown-up and wear a dress and high-heeled
shoes. When I got there, I looked totally ridiculous and some people started laughing.

Despite of this slight setback, I thought I’d hit the dance floor. If I could have survive that, I could survive anything. But even though that went wrong! One of my heels snapped – even if though my shoes were brand new – and I had to carry them to the side of the room. It was very embarrassing! Still, despite the disastrous start was, Craig Fielding came up to me and asked me if I wanted to go out with him next Saturday. Of course I said no, but he is cute! We’ll see what happens!


I. Fill each blank in the following passage with ONE suitable word.

Some hundred years ago there was no equality between men and women because people then (1) considered women to be the weaker sex. This prejudice (2) against women had its origin in the dawn of mankind’s (3) history when men lived in caves and went hunting for food. The task of food gathering and hunting needed great (4) strength of body. Therefore, the best place for women was not in the forest, but at home (5) where they could satisfactorily do their job, namely (6) feeding their children and looking after them. Things have changed much since those early days. In the modern life of the 20th century, more (7) brains are needed, not more strength of the muscle. It’s a consequence that women play an increasingly (8) important role in the (9) modern society. They have proved repeatedly they are equal and often superior to men in (10) almost every field.      

II. Read the passage and decide which answer (A, B, C, or D) best fits each blank.

Learning to make a perfect pizza

According to the European Pizza-Makers’ Association, making a pizza is not a straightforward skill to learn. The ingredients seem very simple: flour, yeast, water, and a bit of salt. (1) However, water and flour can easily turn into a rather unappetizing gluey mix, and anyone who has eaten a poor quality pizza will know how bad it can make your stomach feel.

“In Italy, 70 percent of pizza makers could improve on their product, not to mention all the pizza makers around the world who (2) provide uneatable meals,” says Antonio Primiceri, the association’s founder. He has now started a pizza school in an attempt to save the reputation of this traditional dish. As part of an (3) intensive course, the students at Mr. Primiceri’s school are taught to avoid common mistakes, produce a good basic mixture, add a tasty topping, and cook the pizza properly. “Test the finished pizza by breaking the crust,” advises Mr. Primiceri. “If the soft (4) part inside the pizza is white, clean and dry, it’s a good pizza. If it is not like this, the pizza will upset your stomach. You will feel (5) uncomfortably full and also thirsty.”


A. However

B. Despite

C. Although

D. Conversely


A. submit

B. give

C. provide

D. deal


A. extensive

B. extreme

C. intentional

D. intensive


A. spot

B. part

C. side

D. slice


A. discouragingly

B. tightly

C. uncomfortably

D. heavily

III. Read the following passage and choose the best answer from A, B, C or D.

Most people would agree that, although our age exceeds all previous ages in knowledge, there has been no corresponding increase in wisdom. But agreement ceases as soon as we attempt to define “wisdom” and consider means of promoting it.

There are several factors that contribute to wisdom. Of there I should put first a sense of proportion: the capacity to take account of all the important factors in a problem and to attach to each its due weight. This has become more difficult than it used to be owing to the extent and complexity of the special knowledge required of various kinds of technicians. Suppose, for example, that you are engaged in research in scientific medicine. The work is difficult and is likely to absorb the whole of your mind. You have no time to consider the effect which your discoveries or inventions may have outside the field of medicine. You succeed (let us say) as modern medicine has succeeded, in enormously lowering the infant death-rate, not only in Europe and America, but also in Asia and Africa. This has the entirely unintended result of making the food supply inadequate and lowering the standard of life in the parts of the world that have the greatest populations. To take an even more dramatic example, which is in everybody's mind at the present time; you study the makeup of the atom from a disinterested desire for knowledge, and by chance place in the hands of a powerful mad man the means of destroying the human race.
