The Window

 There were once two men, both seriously ill, in the same small room of a great hospital.

  1. _______________

One of the men, as part of his treatment, was allowed to sit up in bed for an hour in the afternoon (something to do with draining the fluid from his lungs). His bed was next to the window. But the other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.        2) _____________ .

 The window apparently overlooked a park where there was a lake. There were ducks and swans in the lake, and children came to throw them bread and sail model boats. Young lovers walked hand in hand beneath the trees, and there were flowers and stretches of grass, games of softball. 3) ____________ The man on his back would listen to the other man describe all of this, enjoying every minute. He heard how a child nearly fell into the lake, and how beautiful the girls were in their summer dresses.

 His friend’s descriptions eventually made him feel he could almost see what was happening outside.

 Then one fine afternoon, the thought struck him: Why should the man next to the window have all the pleasure of seeing what was going on? Why shouldn’t he get the chance? 4) __________.  He’d do anything!

 One night as he stared at the ceiling, the other man suddenly woke up, coughing and choking, and his hands groping for the button that would bring the nurse running. 5) ___________ In the morning, the nurse found the other man dead, and quietly took his body away.

 As soon as it seemed decent, the man asked if he could be switched to the bed next to the window. 6) ____________ The minute they left, he propped himself up on one elbow, painfully and laboriously, and looked out the window.

 It faced a blank wall.

A  He felt ashamed, but the more he tried not to think like that, the worse he wanted a change.

B Every afternoon when the man next to the window was propped up for his hour, he would pass the time by describing what he could see outside.

C So they moved him, tucked him in, and made him quite comfortable.

D And at the back, behind the fringe of trees, was a fine view of the city skyline.

E Quite a small room, it had one window looking out on the world.

F But the man watched without moving – even when the sound of breathing stopped.

G However, he could not see anything.

Task 2. Read the following text and answer questions 7-15 by choosing А, В, C, or D. Give only one answer to each question.

How I Became an Athlete

One of the most wonderful moments in my life was standing waiting to be awarded my forth gold medal at the 1936 Olympic Games.

And as I stood there, my thoughts raced back to a time when it seemed impossible that I would ever run like other boys and girls, let alone run in the Olympics. It began one night when I was six.

“What’s that strange bump on your leg, Jess?” my mother asked me as I was getting into bed.

“Gee, I don’t know, Ma,” I answered. “It doesn’t hurt much”.

So we didn’t pay any more attention to it then. But as the days passed, the bump began to get bigger and to hurt. Finally I was limping. Then the day came when I could no longer walk.

Where we lived in the Deep South at that time, there were few doctors, and my family couldn’t even afford secondhand crutches. So my mother took it upon herself to get me well. She tried every home remedy she knew. She massaged my leg and made me walk on it, even if it hurt to do so. And she somehow fed me like a king on the day laborer’s salary of my father.

Until one day, the bump started getting smaller! And then finally, when I was nine years old, it went away completely.

Maybe it was because I was so thankful to have two legs again like all my classmates that I took up running. Of course, the schoolhouse I went back to was just one room, and we had no gym or equipment. So I simply ran across the fields and down the roads. That was harder than the way athletes train today. But, in the long run, it turned out better for me because, when we moved to Cleveland, it was so easy to run on the smooth streets and flat floors of the gym where we exercised. I found that I was faster than the other boys, and I was looking forward to junior high when I would really have a chance to join a team.

But fate seemed to have other plans again. My father became ill. My mother had to go to work. And when I wasn’t in school, I had to shine shoes instead of run in them. Then my father got better but had trouble finding work. Just when I thought I would have time to run again, I had to go on shining shoes and delivering groceries on Saturday and on Sunday after church.

It was a hard time for me but it passed, and finally I was entering junior high. I’ll never forget that first day – the day I met the Fairmont School coach, Charles Riley. My mother had given me a healthy pair of legs by never giving up when everyone else said that I was doomed to be a cripple. Now Mr. Riley showed me how to use those legs – and the spirit that makes them move even more than blood and muscles do.

  1. When did Jess Owens start to remember his childhood trouble?

Task 1. For questions, 1-7 read the text The Guests. Solve the crossword puzzle by replacing the underlined words or word combinations with their synonyms.

The Guests

A young man and his wife were on a trip to visit his mother. Usually they        (1 across) came  in time for supper, but they had had a late start, and now it was getting dark, so they decided to look for a place to stay overnight and (3 down) go in a car on in the morning.

 Just off the road, they saw a small house in the woods. «Maybe they rent rooms,» the wife said. So they stopped to ask. An elderly man and woman came to the door. They didn’t rent rooms, they said, but they would be glad to have them stay overnight as their guests. They had plenty of room, and they would enjoy the company. The old woman made coffee and brought out some cake, and the four of them talked for a while. Then the young couple were taken to their room. They tried to (2 across) beg urgently on paying for this, but the old man said he would not       (6 across) take any money.

 The young couple got up early the next morning, before their hosts had awakened. They left an envelope with some money in it on a table near the front door, to pay for the room. Then they went on to the next town. They stopped at a     (4 down) an eating house and had breakfast. When they told the owner where they had stayed, he was (5 down) struck with fear. «That can’t be,» he said. «That house burned to the ground, and the man and the woman who lived there (7 across) passed away in the fire.»

The young couple could not believe it. So they went back to the house. Only now there was no house. All they found was a burnt-out shell. They stood staring at the ruins trying to understand what had happened. Then the woman screamed: In the rubble was a badly burned table, like the one they had seen by the front door and on the table was the envelope they had left that very morning.

Task 2. Use the words given in brackets to form words that lexically and grammatically fit the blanks.

But most of my friends wear such clothes and we really like them. Have you ever argued with your parents about what clothes to wear? What clothes do you prefer? Is being fashionable important to you?

In a normal life a person sleeps for about twenty-five years. But why do we sleep? The simple answer is: we don’t know. We need more sleep when we are young. A baby sleeps for about ten hours. A teenager sleeps for about eight and a half hours. An adult sleeps for seven or eight hours. Old people need only five or six hours.

 There are two kinds of sleep. When you go to sleep you go into deep sleep. Your temperature falls, your body relaxes, and you breath slowly. After about half an hour you go into active sleep. This is also called rapid eye movement sleep (or REM sleep), because your eyes move. You dream in both deep sleep and REM sleep, but in REM sleep you dream in pictures. If you wake up in REM sleep you can usually remember your dream. Your body spends about twenty minutes in REM sleep and then goes back into deep sleep for an hour.

 Do you ever talk or walk in your sleep? People sleepwalk in deep sleep and sleepwalkers do amazing things. They open doors and windows, they ride bicycles and drive cars. They cook, they take a bath or a shower (often in their pyjamas), they shave, they clean their teeth, they get dressed, they dig the garden and do other things.

 Sleepwalkers are asleep, but they have their eyes open and they can see. They can’t wake up easily. If they do, they can’t remember anything. Do you ever sleepwalk? Are you sure? Perhaps you do, but nobody sees you.

  1. Everyone sleeps for eight hours a night.

1) True                                         2) False                        3) Not stated

  1. Teenagers need less sleep than adults.

1) True                                         2) False                        3) Not stated

1) True                                         2) False                        3) Not stated

  1. REM sleep is the same as active sleep.

1) True                                         2) False                        3) Not stated
