    Газета School English #6, 2003

    Задания по чтению


    рубрику ведет Елена Клековкина


        Дорогие друзья!

        В двух предыдущих номерах газеты мы начали знакомить вас с демонстрационной версией экзамена 2003г. и давать комментарии к заданиям. Вы уже имеете представление о том, какими могут быть задания, проверяющие владение лексико-грамматическими навыками (№4, февраль) и умениями устной речи (№5, март). В этом номере вы найдете задания по чтению, а также некоторые советы по их выполнению.

        Вы наверняка обращали внимание на то, что в реальной жизни мы читаем по-разному. Иногда мы просто хотим понять, о чем текст, и для этого нам достаточно просмотреть его, обращая внимание на ключевые слова. В некоторых случаях нам необходимо найти в тексте нужную нам информацию, и мы опять-таки просматриваем его, но уже по-другому: пытаемся прежде всего определить ту часть текста, в которой эта информация содержится.

        В тех же случаях, когда нам нужно получить из текста подробную и полную информацию, мы внимательно вчитываемся в него от начала до конца. Таким образом, в зависимости от целей чтения мы пользуемся разными его стратегиями и затрачиваем на него разное время.

        Следующие три задания представляют разные виды чтения. Перед тем, как выполнять каждое из них, внимательно прочитайте инструкцию, посмотрите на тексты и попытайтесь определить, как и для чего вы будете их читать. Отметьте, сколько времени у вас уйдет на выполнение каждого задания, попытайтесь его сэкономить. Не тратьте время на то, чтобы понять каждое слово. При чтении важно понимание смысла текста, а не восприятие отдельных слов.

        Напишите нам, как вы выполняли каждое из заданий. Попробуйте сначала сами разобраться в том, какая из стратегий будет наиболее эффективной. В следующем номере мы вернемся к подробному разговору о чтении.

    А8-А12

        Catherine now ran the inn, and the work there had helped her cope with her husband’s death.
        Yet, in the nine months since the bridge tragedy, she still believed that some day the door would open and Ed would cheerfully call, “Where are my girls?” Sometimes she found herself listening for the sound of her husband’s voice.
        Now, in addition to all the shock and grief, her finances had become an urgent problem. Two years earlier, Catherine had closed the inn for six months, mortgaged it and completed a massive renovation and redecoration project.
        One Friday afternoon Catherine was in the house, getting ready to go to the inn for the dinner hour. The insurance people were expected soon. But, when the two gloomy looking executives arrived, it was not to begin the process of payment. “Mrs. Collins”, the older of the two said, “I hope you will understand our position. We sympathize with you and understand the situation you are in. The problem is that we cannot authorize payment on your husband’s policies without a death certificate and that is not going to be issued”.
        Catherine stared at him. “You mean it’s not going to be issued until they have absolute proof of his death? But suppose his body was carried down the river clear into the Atlantic?”
        Both men looked uneasy. “All the other bodies have been recovered. There isn’t so much as wheel or engine part of a Cadillac in the riverbed below the accident site”.
        “Then you’re saying…” Catherine was finding it hard to form words.
        “We are saying that the executive report on the accident categorically states that Edwin Collins could not have perished in the bridge tragedy that night. The experts feel that even though he may have been in the vicinity of the bridge, no one believes Edwin Collins was a victim. We believe he was in none of the cars involved in the accident and took advantage of that favourable happening to make the disappearance he was planning. We think he reasoned he could take care of you and your daughter through the insurance and go on to whatever life he had already planned to begin in South America or somewhere else.”

    A8 Catherine was so much depressed after her husband’s death that she

    1. couldn’t work.
    2. started hearing Ed’s voice.
    3. believed he would return.
    4. talked to Ed through the door.

    А9 Catherine needed money because she

    1. had to run the inn.
    2. wanted to renovate the inn.
    3. wanted to forget her grief.
    4. had wasted her money.

    A10 The insurance people came to see Catherine to tell her that

    1. the company couldn’t pay the money without a document.
    2. the insurance company refused to issue a death certificate.
    3. Edwin Collins’ body had been found in the Atlantic.
    4. Edwin Collins’ car had been found in the river.

    A11 The executive report stated that Edwin

    1. was caught in one of the cars.
    2. was seen in the vicinity of the bridge.
    3. could have died in the accident.
    4. could not have been a victim.

    A12 The insurance people thought that Edwin Collins

    1. lived in South America.
    2. had organized his disappearance.
    3. did not care for his wife.
    4. had planned to return home.
