Task 1. Read the text and match the correct heading (A-F) with each paragraph (1-4). There are two extra headings that you do not need to use.  

1. .........

 The history of marine travel is rich in mystery. There are many 

stories about ships which did not reach their destinations or 

disappeared and have never been found. Some have even been discovered floating about with nobody on board. The mystery of the Mary Celeste is no exception here. She appeared in 1872 with no crew on board in perfect weather conditions and she has inspired many stories.

The Mary Celeste was a large American cargo ship. It left New York on 5th November 1872 with a cargo of industrial alcohol, and was sailing to the Italian port of Genoa. A month later, it was seen on the Atlantic Ocean by the sailors of another ship, the Dei Gratia. After careful observation of the ship’s strange movement, Captain David Moorhouse of the Dei Gratia sent a few men out in a boat to investigate. It appeared that the crew members had left the ship in a great hurry, leaving behind them all their possessions and many valuable items. Why?

3. _  

There have been many theories that try to explain the mystery. One appeared in January 1884, when a story entitled ‘The J.Habakuk Jephson Statement’ was published in a London magazine. Jephson claimed he’d been a crew member on the Mary Celeste. He talked about a rebellion of black sailors who threw all the white men out into the sea and left the ship in a lifeboat. However, it was simply a story written by the famous author Arthur Conan Doyle.

4. _  

Another, much more probable explanation for the Mary Celeste mystery focuses on the dangerous cargo the ship was transporting. It was not unusual for this kind of cargo to cause fires or explosions on board the ships. It is believed that the crew might have smelt strong alcohol fumes, and left the ship in panic, because they were worried about an explosion. However, despite the large number of these theories, the case of the Mary Celeste still remains one of the greatest maritime mysteries.

Task 2. Read the following three texts which are all about travelling. For each question choose the answer (A, B or C) which you think fits best according to the text. 


Text 1.  

‘Beth, why don’t you sit on the balcony and look at the view. It’s spectacular’, Tony said as he went into the kitchen to find something simple to eat. We weren’t that hungry because we’d had a big breakfast at the cafй on the beach earlier. I went to sit on the balcony. Tony was right. It was a great view, all the way down the hill to the blue sea. It was my first visit to his rented holiday home and I imagined it had cost afortune! My little ground floor flat looked directly over a restaurant car park, which was not ideal. In spite of that, 

it was in a friendly area, with lots of people around. Tony’s place was a bit isolated for me. But that was Tony. He enjoyed his own company.


Which sentence is true about Beth?  

варіанти відповідей

She would prefer to rent a holiday home like Tony’s.  

She likes the view from her own flat.  

She doesn’t like living far away from other people.

Text 2.  

In the past older people simply stopped going on holiday when they reached a certain age. There were many reasons for this. Many older people could no longer drive to holiday destinations or they found airports too crowded and difficult to deal with.Hotels weren’t convenient for people who couldn’t walk up three flights of stairs and holiday insurance was extremely high for anyone with a medical problem. 

However, our specialist website can help find the perfect holiday for the older traveller and it’s packed with tips about travel, accommodation and insurance. Being older doesn’t mean you have to stay at home. Get online now and find your dream location.

Text 3. 

Hi Ben, 

A big thank you for looking after Bingo while we’re away! I’m 

not sure if I told you about a vet’s appointment he has on 

Thursday? It’s at 10.30 – just a routine check-up. Is that OK? 

Also, someone’s coming round on Friday to repair my 

computer – about 2 o’clock. It would be great if you could let 

him in. I’d ask you to do it because you know so much about 

computers but you’ve got a lot of work at the moment. We’ll 

be back late on Saturday so I’d be grateful if you could get 

some milk and bread for us. What would we do without you? 

Thanks a lot, 

Tricia
