2 Questions Look at the sentences below about a journey to the Arctic on board a ship. Read the text below to decide if each sentence is correct or incorrect. If it is correct, mark A on your answer sheet. If it is not correct, mark B on your answer sheet. 11 This trip is for people who like peace and quiet. 12 Many different activities are organised on board. 13 The voyage begins in Scotland. 14 The ship follows a fixed route. 15 There are different types of accommodation. 16 Passengers serve themselves in the dining room. 17 Whales can be seen in the morning near Tromsø. 18 There are some examples of traditional buildings in Tromsø. 19 The ship stays overnight in Tromsø. 20 Bear Island used to be a busy fishing centre. Exploring the Arctic The Arctic is one of the few places in the world untouched by pollution where you can see nature at its wildest and most beautiful. Join our ship the Northern Star from 2 to 18 July, for a 17 day voyage to the Arctic. During the voyage you are able to relax and get away from it all. There are no parties or film shows to attend, quizzes to enter or entertainers to watch. However, we do have specialists on board who are willing to answer any of your questions about the Arctic and who will talk about the animals and birds that you see on the trip. After setting off from Scotland, we go north along the coast of Norway to Bear Island. Along the way you ll see thousands of seabirds and wonderful scenery, with rivers of ice and huge cliffs. You will have the chance to see reindeer, polar bears, and other Arctic animals. Although we have a timetable, experience has shown that we may have to change our direction a little, depending on the weather and on which animals appear. The Northern Star is a very special ship and our past voyages have been very popular. Our cabins all have the same excellent facilities, which include a private bathroom and refrigerator. Our chefs are happy to prepare any food for people on special diets. Choose just what you want to eat from the wide variety available from the dining room buffet. There is a library, shop, clinic and plenty of space for relaxation. If you need some exercise, why not go jogging every morning around the decks, or do some swimming in the indoor pool. Prices include economy class air travel and 16 nights on board the Northern Star, all meals and excursions and all lectures. Day 1 Days 2 7 Day 8 Days 9 10 Days Day 17 Board the Northern Star. We sail slowly north along the coast of Norway, stopping at places of interest. Tromsø. You need to get up at sunrise to see the whales as we sail towards Tromsø. Visit Tromsø to see the Arctic Museum, the cathedral and the beautiful old wooden houses. In the evening, we sail away along the west coast to Bird Island, which is excellent for bird watching. Bear Island. We arrive here in the early evening and stay overnight. Bear Island once had an active fishing industry, but today little of this remains. We will explore the island, looking out for Arctic flowers. Spitsbergen. A place of mountains and rivers of ice, it is home to a large variety of animals. Leave the ship in Spitsbergen and fly to London from Tromsø.

In common with many other British teenagers, he chose to take a year out before (21). to study for his degree. After doing various jobs to (22). some money, he left home to gain some experience of life in different cultures, visiting America and Asia. The more adventurous the young person, the (23).the challenge they are likely to (24).themselves for the gap year, and for some, like Nigel, it can (25). in a thirst for adventure. Now that his university course has (26). to an end, Nigel is just about to leave on a three year trip that will take him (27).around the world. What s more, he plans to make the whole journey using only means of transport which are (28).by natural energy. In other words, he ll be (29).mostly on bicycles and his own legs; and when there s an ocean to cross, he won t be taking a (30).cut by climbing aboard a plane, he ll be joining the crew of a sailing ship (31). As well as doing some mountain climbing and other outdoor pursuits along the way, Nigel hopes to (32). on to the people he meets the environmental message that lies behind the whole idea. 21 A settling down B getting up C taking over D holding back 22 A achieve B raise C advance D win 23 A stronger B wider C greater D deeper 24 A put B set C aim D place 25 A result B lead C cause D create 26 A come B turned C reach D brought 27 A just B complete C whole D right 28 A pulled B charged C forced D powered 29 A relying B using C attempting D trying 30 A quick B short C brief D swift 31 A anyway B alike C instead D otherwise 32 A leave B keep C pass D give

Mark your answers on the separate answer sheet. 0 A climate B weather C season D condition 0 A B C D Music in the Great Outdoors Outdoor entertainment has a long history in countries with a warm (0).. In ancient Greece, for example, plays were (33).in large open arenas. Today, audiences enjoy concerts of classical, opera, pop and rock music in outdoor (34).. These are usually less formal and restrictive for the listeners than a stuffy concert hall, and a warm, starry night (35).a unique atmosphere. Music heard inside a building is (36).to different acoustics. Sound vibrations are (37).from a musical instrument or voice to the eardrum and the building s structure can (38).these vibrations, which we then experience as an echo. Obstructions such as pillars can (39).vibrations, and hard surfaces resonate or vibrate, (40).the sound, while carpets and curtains may (41).and deaden voices and music. The music at open air concerts, on the other hand, must often compete with the noise of traffic, bird song or wind and thunder. A (42).wind can carry the sound away and a sudden summer storm can drawn out the music altogether. In addition, if there is any risk of rain, all instruments and sound equipment must be housed under (43).to avoid the danger of electrocution. Once these problems are (44)., outdoor concerts allow people the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of live music in the fresh air. 33 A performed B shown C executed D held 34 A localities B circumstances C surroundings D backgrounds 35 A builds B forms C composes D creates 36 A liable B subject C related D adapted 37 A transmitted B played C directed D broadcast 38 A reflect B exhibit C produce D register 39 A harm B halt C impede D prevent 40 A twisting B bending C distorting D adjusting 41 A absorb B attract C withdraw D detain 42 A firm B strong C forceful D rough 43 A enclosure B shade C wrapper D cover 44 A defeated B overcome C cleared D handled
