41 (C) CLOTHES THROUGHOUT HISTORY
People have always had the need to set their own fashion trends, and there is no better witness to this fact than the Fashion Museum in Bath, England. With a display of original outfits dating from the 1700s to modern day, fashion enthusiasts will be thrilled to see not only authentic gowns worn by English kings and queens, but also some of the dresses made famous by the legendary Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe.
42 (F) WE ARE WHAT WE WEAR
A long time ago, clothes were simply a way of covering our bodies. Of course, there have always been preferences in one style or another, but fashion rarely used to define who we are. Today, things are different. Our clothes make a statement about our personality and our lifestyle. Teens, especially, associate the way they dress with the image they want to show others. It’s not really about being fashionable anymore; it’s rather about showing our identity through our choice of outfit.
43 (В) PRIZED CREATIONS
William Ivey Long is one of the greatest costumes designers of our time. His extraordinary work in Hairspray, Chicago and other Broadway and off-Broadway plays has won him five Tony awards and twice as many nominations. His costumes are clever, original and a perfect expression of the character they are created for. The highlight in Long’s career was in 2006, when he was admitted to the Theatre Hall of Fame.
44 (A) ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CLOTHES
With more and more people turning their attention to our planet’s growing problems, it’s no wonder that the fashion industry is also doing so. Eco-safe materials, organic colouring substances and even clothes made from recycled materials are now easier to find and are becoming more and more popular with today’s shoppers.
45 (E) LESS THAN PERFECT
The next time you feel frustrated because you don’t have Nicole Kidman’s porcelain skin, Jennifer Aniston’s beautiful hair or David Beckham’s muscular body, have a look through some gossip magazines. It might make you feel better to see pictures of your favourite Hollywood icons without their make-up on. Take a closer look at a star’s picture that hasn’t been retouched, and you’ll discover that many of them are ordinary-looking people, just like you and me!

G Read the following text and choose the correct answer (А, В, C or D).
A DREAM COME TRUE
As a teenager, my brother Al used to invent little things as a pastime. After the gadget phase, he started making toy aeroplanes out of wood or plastic. His creations were quite impressive for someone so young. His room was always full of books about famous pilots and jet aeroplanes that he read again and again. His dream was to sell his model aeroplanes in his own shop one day, so he was determined to learn all about flying, and even designed all his models on a 3-D computer programme, before he built them.
Neither of my parents opposed Al’s decision. They both believed that people should be keen on their jobs, but our father wanted him to get a university degree first. Our mother thought that a good education was necessary, especially because she had doubts about if he could earn a good living with his aeroplanes. On the other hand, she couldn’t see how becoming a lawyer or a doctor for example, would help Al with the job he wanted to do.
When Al finished school, he finally decided to get a degree in architecture. During his studies, Al continued his hobby in his spare time, but also got involved in other things. He played football for a while, volunteered at the school’s library, and joined the drama club; though he soon decided that acting wasn’t for him.
As soon as Al graduated, he and another dozen students took a tour of Europe. The highlight of Al’s trip was France. He even considered moving there for a short time to improve his skills in French, but he wanted to return home to prove to himself that he could succeed as a businessman. Three years later, Al accomplished his goal, and today, he is so successful, that he has five shops in our city and is planning to open more around the country. And, who knows, maybe one day his model airplanes will be famous around the world!
41 When Al was young, he wanted to be a(n)
A pilot C computer designer
В shop owner D inventor
42 Al’s mother believed that
A it wasn’t important for Al to get a good education.
В a good education would help Al with his career.
C Al might not earn enough money from the job he wanted to do.
D Al would make a very good lawyer.
43 While Al was at university, he
A continued to build model airplanes.
В got a job as an architect.
C trained to be a professional actor.
D worked at the university library.
44 What did Al do soon after graduation? A He lived in France for a while.
В He opened up his own business.
C He did some travelling.
D He learned how to speak French.
45 Al wants to open A another shop.
В shops in different cities.
C shops in different countries
D five shops in his town.
H Listen to some people talking about their jobs on a radio programme. Then, match the speakers (1-5) to the statements (A-F). There is one extra statement.
46 Speaker 1 — D The speaker is thinking about doing a different job.
47 Speaker 2 — E The speaker turned his/her hobby into a career.
48 Speaker 3 — F The speaker finds it difficult to meet deadlines.
49 Speaker 4 — C The speaker’s job involves a lot of travelling.
50 Speaker 5 — В The speaker wants to become famous.
