Reding Comprehension 5 Bhelors who wnt to sty single were wrned not to buy home with their girlfriend yesterdy fter reserh showed tht women see property, not enggement, s the biggest bond. Trdition used to ditte tht womn s only desire ws to get ring on her finger, but survey published yesterdy showed tht buying home with her boyfriend is now seen s fr more signifint. The reserh, onduted by the Woolwih, found tht 34 per ent of women think joint deposit on property is the lerest signl for long-term reltionship. Just 13 per ent think tht getting engged is mking suh ler signl. The number of people mrrying hs fllen to fewer thn 250,000 yer, the lowest for more thn entury, ording to the Offie for Ntionl Sttistis.

12 10 90 Minutes Reding Comprehension / Lnguge Elements Reding Comprehension, Prt 2 Reding Comprehension Red the following text, then hoose the nswers to questions Youngsters ren t illiterte, but they re not reding mny books If hildren re to pitlise on life s opportunities, they must be ble to red. Trditionlly, in both edution nd the wider ulture, litery mens books. Muh of wht is most preious in our ulturl storehouse lies between hrd overs nd shools hve ustomrily lid gret stress on enourging hildren to disover books. But printed books hve been vilble for only few enturies nd newer medi like the internet ould yet disple them from their pre-eminent ple in the ulture. Certinly the results from the ltest survey of teenge litery by the Orgnistion for Eonomi Co-opertion nd Development give out some surprising signls. This reserh, whih ompres levels of litery mong 15-yer-olds ross 43 ountries, shows tht Britin s seondry-shool students spend less time reding books thn those of lmost every other ountry. This sounds lrming, but nother sttisti from the sme survey is more ressuring. British teengers do well in interntionl litery tests, oming ninth out of 43 ountries, omfortbly mong the top performing qurter. But if our teengers re not reding books, where re they getting their skills? Andres Sheiher, hed of nlysis in the OECD s edution division, believes teens re spending more time browsing through mgzines, e-mil nd the internet, nd tht this is not prtiulr problem. Wht mtters is hving diversity of different reding mterils, he sid. E-mil is prt of ommunition in the modern world nd is therefore vlid wy of spending your reding time. So, does it mtter if hildren ren t reding books? Frnis Spufford, uthor of the The Child Tht Books Built, is pssiontely onvined tht it does. There is differene between tehnil litery, whih is the bility to deode written lnguge, nd the rest of wht the written word is pble of, to reh its emotionl heights nd sound its emotionl depths nd inherit ll of the things tht re oded into the written words, he sid. There re more odes there thn just the lphbet. And books re more thn just nother tehnology for delivering writing in; they re other worlds, sometimes worlds tht reflet our own, sometimes worlds tht hllenge our own, sometimes worlds tht provide n espe from our own. But they ontin some of the most rih nd densely imgined things of whih humns re pble, nd unless you lern to slow down nd let books do their work on you, you re missing something enormous. Spufford s point is ehoed by Genevieve Clrk, who mnges the Ntionl Reding Cmpign. She sid, One wy of putting it is tht they exerise the musles of the imgintion. They open ll sorts of doors, they enourge people to see life through other people s eyes. So, yes, books will lwys remin speil nd we would lwys enourge people to relise tht books n fit into their life. Contrry to wht the OECD reserh suggests, Clrk mintins tht books re still populr mong young people. Look t Hrry Potter, she sid. Teengers re still reding, nd reding very brodly. We ve got plenty of evidene from ll sorts of things, for instne the BBC Big Red where the top 100 books were voted for by the publi. A third of them were hildren s books. But plenty of inditors suggest otherwise, nd if it is ler tht books re importnt it is less ler how we persude teengers of this. Spufford sid, Prt of it is perhps to do with the right hildren not finding the right book, beuse tht is proess whih depends to remrkble extent on luk, the sort of luky lightning strikes where the right kid finds the right pge t the right time. It s hrd to see how tht ould be systemtised. On the other hnd it my lso be tht the wy we re tehing reding nd writing in shools doesn t tully enourge hildren to see books s soure of plesure, whih is very importnt. Clrk sid tht hildren s existing interest in other kinds of reding ould tully serve s wy in. I think tehers, librrins, nyone who s involved with promoting reding, espeilly to those who think tht reding is boring or just not ool, need to think quite brodly bout how they enourge hildren into reding, she sid. If they re pssiontely interested in dne or fishing or omputers, there might be mgzines nd websites tht interest them, but there re probbly books s well. Wht we try to do is enourge young people to see books s prt of the mix.
