TASK 1

Read the sample text below then answer the questions that follow.

Part 1

Your class has attended a lecture on what governments could do to minimise the impact of CO2 in big cities. You have made some notes below.

Notes

  • Restrict car use in city centres
  • Cheaper public transport
  • Congestion charges

Opinions expressed during the lecture:

  • "Public transport can be slow and unreliable"
  • Congestion charges would be too expensive"
  • "People that work in the city centre will feel discriminated against"

Write an essay for your tutor discussing two of the methods in your notes. You should explain which method you think is better for the local government to consider and support your opinion with reasons.

You can use the opinions provided but you must use your own words as much as possible.

Write an answer to one of the questions 2-4 in this part. Write your answer in 220-260 words in an appropriate style.

Part 2

Read the extract from an email you received from an international animal aid organization.

We are currently conducting a survey on the importance of charity for young people and how young people view charitable organizations around the world. Please write a report on this survey describing how young people in your area feel about charities and supporting charitable organizations and how you think this may change in the future.

Write your report.

Part 3

You recently returned from a holiday abroad. On the flight to your destination, the plane was substantially delayed with no apparent explanation and this resulted in you missing your connecting flight and having to stay a night at the airport waiting for the next connection. Your luggage was lost for almost four days and when it was returned to you, your camera was missing. Write a letter to the airline company describing how you and your holiday were affected, how you feel about the service and asking for compensation.

Write your letter.

Part 4

A website that specializes in book reviews has asked you to write a review of a book that you have read. You should comment on the portrayal of the characters, the development of the plot and its main themes and whether you believe the book is a good addition to its genre or not. Give reasons for your opinions.
