Second term English Test

Post by Admin on Sun Mar 06, 2016 10:38 pm

Part one. Reading: A/comprehension: Read the text carefully then do the activities

Today, everywhere in the world, people have developed a new attitude towards the act of buying .The fact that markets are filled with all sorts of goods encourages everyone to engage in the purchase a large variety of items .Some of these are essential either because they contribute for our biological survival like food and medicine or because they play an important part in protecting our mental balance like songs and books.
But next to such vital things, we find numerous elements which we feel obliged to acquire although they do not have any determining role in our existence. This is the case with fashion clothes, paintings, designed furniture, jewellery and make up products. We can also integrate in the same category the electronic devices that equip modern houses. The list still includes cameras, phone-mobiles, gold watches, sport cars and a multitude of the articles which we buy just because they are accessible in markets.

All these items do not add much to the basic needs of our life. Yet, all of us are eager to get them. They are gradually incorporated in our life, forming an important aspect of it. Initially, their productions have no other aim than to provide a source of income for their manufacturers. they have brought an additional feature to our life –style and participate in shaping our personality to some extent .We are unable to abandon their use for the simple reason that such an attitude will expose us to severe criticism from our fellows who will think that we no longer belong to modernity and civilisation.
