Quiz 8
READING COMPREHENSION
Q1.   Read the article.
If you could go anywhere, …

This week our reporter round town asked: “If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?”
Alison, 28, administrative assistant: I’d go to Antarctica. It’s so far away, and it would be so different. I read an article that said it’s the coldest and windiest place on Earth. I love the winter, though, so I wouldn’t mind the snow and ice!

Matt, 33, computer analyst: I’d go to the Andes – between Chile and Argentina. I understand the scenery is really beautiful there. I’d hire a guide and go hiking through the mountains. I’ve heard there are several active volcanoes in the area.

Hilary, 48, salesperson: Could I take my husband? If he couldn’t come with me, I’d probably go to Rio de Janeiro and just lie on the beach! But if I could, we’d go to China. He loves architecture, so we’d visit some historical places – like the Forbidden City in Beijing and the Great Wall.

Bob, 21, student: I’d go to Timbuktu. That’s not a joke. I’ve heard Timbuktu is a real place in Africa, near the Sahara Desert. The name just sounds so interesting. It would be really cool to go there.   
Read the statements and check (ü) true, false, or it doesn’t say.

Quiz 6
READING COMPREHENSION
Q1.   Read the text below and  mark true (T) or false (F)
Living in the countryside can be very difficult for teenagers. Their nearest friend lives miles away and it's impossible to get into the town to go shopping or attend a club. 13-year-old Fiona Timson, who lives in Carneath in Wales, says 'everyone else seems to have such interesting weeks.

Fiona's mum, Helen, realizes it's a problem. 'We moved here because it was quiet and we knew we wouldn't have to worry about her going out alone. But we possibly made the wrong choice. Fiona hardly ever leaves home, not because she's scared, but because there is simply nowhere for her to go. The village is tiny, and most of the people living here are old. I can't drive her around because we only have one car, and my husband uses it for work.' Fiona can't spend the evening with friends because the last bus to Carneath is at ten past five in the afternoon. She even has to leave her school orchestra practice early in order to catch it.
The Country Kids organization aims to help children like Fiona, and their families. A grant from Country Kids gives families money for four taxi rides per month, up to a distance of twenty five miles each. To qualify for a grant from Country Kids, children must be between the ages of eleven and sixteen, and live in a village with a population of less than 1000 people. The village must be more than twenty miles from a town.  The family's income must also be below a certain level. For Fiona's school friend Emma, who lives in nearby Dolbury with a population of 894, it's perfect..

The number of families applying to Country Kids for a grant is increasing, and its president, Judith Sankey, is finding it more and more difficult to find funding. 'There are so many great organizations looking for money. A lot of people feel that curing diseases and helping animals is more important than the work we do, so they prefer to give their money to them.
We're always worrying that we won't be able to carry on. But the families we help really do appreciate what we do, so I hope the organization can continue to run in the future.'
