SECTION B. READING COMPREHENSION

Question 1 (10 points). Complete this passage using sentences marked by A-G. There is one extra sentence which you do not need to use. Write your answer in the box.

MUSIC TO HELP YOUR BRAIN

A. Pupils were put into groups to listen to different things.
B. Pupils doing best had probably liked what they had heard.
C. Those listening to pop music did best on the test.
D. It was thought that difficult music made the brain work better.
E. The experiment suggests that the children did not listen to Mozart.
F. Listening to Mozart seemed to improve mental ability.
G. The experiment was carried out in all parts of Britain.

0 G

Listening to pop music may make you cleverer, according to a Megalab experiment in which 11,000 children in 250 schools across Britain took part.

1 ....

The idea was put forward as a scientific study by Dr Sue Hallam of the Institute of Education, London, to follow up work in California which suggested that listening to music by Mozart for ten minutes had a direct effect on people's ability to work out problems.

2 ....
The Megalab experiment took place at eleven o'clock one Thursday morning. School children were split at random into three separate groups: one listening to Mozart, one to a pop group and one to a conversation in which Dr Hallam discussed Megalab.

3 ....

The children were the given problem-solving tasks. The group which had listened to the discussion scored 52 per cent, those who had listened to Mozart also scored 52 per cent, but those who had listened to pop group scored 56 per cent. Dr Hallam said the result is interesting and 'approaching significance'.

4 ....

She thought that the reason was not due to the 'Mozart effect' but because the mood of the children had changed, so they were more aroused and tried harder. 'They were probably enjoying it and so they were well motivated,' she said. 'The others were probably uninterested or not particularly inspired by Mozart or by the discussion.'

5 ....

Dr Frances Rauscher, of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory in Berkeley, California, had suggested that students would do better after listening to Mozart because his music is complex and stimulates particular activity in the brain.

Question 2 (10 points). Read the passage below and choose the correct answer for each question. Choose the correct answers by circling A, B, C or D.

TEACHING THE VIOLIN

'The best age to start learning the violin is between three and six,' said Margaret Porter, a violinist and music teacher. 'It's the time when you are learning about the world,' Margaret, who lives in London, prefers to take pupils at three and four, although she has made lots of exceptions for keen five-year-olds. When she started teaching the violin in 1972, her first class consisted of her children's five-year-old school friends.

Margaret's pupils have group lessons. Each group has about a dozen pupils and each lesson lasts an hour, once a fortnight. In addition, each pupil has one individual lesson a week with her. Parents also have to attend the lessons. It is important that the parents take an active interest in the lesson.

From the earliest lessons pupils learn to play by ear. They do not even try to read music until they have been playing for several years, and for a long time there is a big difference between their playing and reading of music. Margaret says that her method is not supposed to produce great violinists, and always suggests that pupils who perform particularly well should leave and study the violin using more traditional methods.

A. explain why Margaret likes teaching the violin.

B. describe a different way of learning the violin.

B. to learn why it is important to read music.

D. to learn why children should play the violin.

3. What opinion does Margaret have about her best pupils?

A. They ought to find another teacher.

B. They will become great violinists using her method

C. They could try harder

D. They take several years to learn to read music.

4. Who were Margaret's first pupils?

A. her children             B. three and four – year – olds

C. her own friends           D. her children's friends

5. Which of the following would Margaret include in an advertisement for her classes?

A. Learn to play the violin with your children – 2 lessons a week
