Before meeting the examiner, you have ten minutes to prepare a story. You may make notes in the preparation stage but should not read aloud from a prepared script.
Match the TV guide entries with one of the Programme Types The first one has been done for you Example Some very tense moments, threatening calls, people driven to the edge of insanity, dreams and flashbacks mingled to often puzzling effect. The film largely takes place at night and in the rain on a dark lonely road. The suspense is well kept up and will keep you at the edge of your seat till the very end.
The answer A has been written on the answer paper. An account of an experience undertaken by two men who set out on a motorbike to see the war-torn continent on which they live. What they discover as they pass through the challenging landscape are the problems of physical and social extremes mountains and endless plains; the complacent rich and the down-trodden poor. A disastrous picture that is all hardware, indifferent special effects, and videogame violence.
Its set in a universe threatened by a horde of mutants, strange creatures, from whom only the main hero can save us. Although not central to the plot, what makes it bearable, though ridiculous, is the romance between the aliens.
This filmmaker famous for documentaries has taken a completely different direction and produced one of the most amusing scripts in recent times. The basic plot couldnt be more familiar, the battle of the sexes. What isnt so typical is the incredibly dry sharp humour and the dry wit. A nightmarish tale that is so unbelievable it can initially seem quite amusing although it is obviously not supposed to be. Later on it takes on an increasingly dark tone, when a sadistic confrontation develops between the main characters.
A terrifying film with a shocking finale. Not for those with a heart problem. A journey from courtship to marriage, a fairy tale story that centres on passion. Its artificial, manipulative stuff, far removed from life, full of cute montages that work on emotions and move you to tears.
Dont forget to bring a tissue. Task Two: Paragraph headings 10 minutes Questions Read the text and match each paragraph with the appropriate heading. The Neusiedler National Park A. Example This national park lies on the plains at the heart of Europe.
It can be reached from both Austria and Hungary, and the lake is proof that nature knows no boundaries. The park aims for the long-term preservation of habitats for a wide variety of bird and plant life in the area where the Alps meet the EuroAsiatic plains. The Pannonian climate with its long growing period and its position between the Alps and the Puszta determine the type of plant life: dry meadows surrounded by wetlands and salt marshes.
The National Park is full of wildlife, mainly birds: meadow sandpipers, geese, herons, storks, curlews and birds of prey. The meadows and marshes are places where many migratory species choose to rest in winter. European reports into endangered bird species refer to the importance of the Neusiedler Lake Area. The work of the National Park is also important for preserving this bird paradise which draws birds from across the globe. People who live in the region, holiday-makers or people.
