A. Logically enough, the emblem of the Red Cross is a red cross on a white background. This image was first used in 1863, and it is basically a reversal of the Swiss flag, which is a white cross on a red background. Beginning in the 1870s, the Ottoman Empire started using the Red Crescent as the name and emblem for its branch of the Red Cross, reflecting its Islamic beliefs. Today, the Red Crescent is recognized by 33 Islamic nations.
B. All monies used by the International Committee of the Red Cross are received as donations from governments, public institutions, and private individuals. The organization’s annual budget exceeds 1 billion Swiss Francs. The majority of funding comes from Switzerland and the United States, with significant contributions also coming from European countries and the EU. Private donations are often received at times of local, national and international emergencies, such as the tsunami disaster in southeastern Asia in 2004.
C. Today the Red Cross has approximately 97 million volunteers, members and staff, working worldwide. The many organizations associated with the Red Cross are legally independent of each other, but they often work together to provide help to people in time of military conflict and natural disaster.
D. The idea for the International Committee of the Red Cross came to Swiss businessman Henry Dunant in 1859. He was travelling in Italy on business, when he witnessed a terrible military battle in which thousands of men died and were wounded. When he realized that the wounded men were not receiving medical care, he organized the local residents to help men on both sides of the conflict. Three years later the Red Cross was officially founded.
E. The International Committee of the Red Cross, which is based in Geneva, Switzerland, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize three times, in 1917, 1944 and 1963. The first two prizes were awarded for the organization’s work during the first and second world wars. The third prize was awarded on the occasion of the Red Cross’s 100th anniversary.
F. Many people around the world know the Red Cross primarily because of the help it gives people locally. For example, the Red Cross sponsors local blood drives, where people donate their blood. This blood can then be used to save the lives of people with medical emergencies. Local Red Cross offices also collect food and clothing and household goods to give to people who are forced to leave their homes after natural disasters.
G. During both World War I and World War II, the International Red Cross worked tirelessly to monitor prisoner-of-war camps, to help civilians caught in the conflicts, and to maintain lists of refugees and missing persons. Tragically, the Red Cross failed to reach an agreement with Nazi Germany regarding its concentration camps and therefore was unable to help the millions of people who died during the war.

Do you know what time it is right now? How do you know? Did you take a look at a wall clock? Glance at your wrist watch? Sneak a peek at your mobile phone? Today we take time-keeping for granted, but of course the very concept of time-keeping is a human invention, with its origins dating back thousands of years.
The first mechanism was probably the sun-dial. This method, which used the moving shadow of the sun to tell time, was widely used in ancient times. A well-constructed sundial is quite accurate, but of course it only works during the day, and only on sunny days. Hourglasses were an invention that made it possible to mark the passage of time at night, in-doors, and in the dark.
All the great ancient civilizations — Greek and Roman, Chinese, Byzantine, Islam — developed water clocks, which were very accurate. These devices were commonly used until the invention of the pendulum clock in the 17th century.
The earliest mechanical clocks didn’t have a visual indicator; they simply announced the time with striking bells. Later the 12-hour circular dial or clock face became standard. A 10-hour dial was briefly popular during the French Revolution when the metric system was applied to time keeping. And the 24 hour dial is commonly used by military organizations and transportation systems.
Today digital displays are used everywhere — on wrist watches, wall clocks, computer screens, etc. This numerical representation of time can be based on the 12-hour system (1:00 am, 1:00 pm) or the 24-hour system (01:00 or 13:00).Like reading, telling time is something all young children have to be taught. Experts suggest that you begin this when a child is about five years old. Even though digital clocks are everywhere, it’s important to begin with traditional dial clocks, with second hands, to help the child literally see the passage of time. Giving a child his or her own wrist watch — just a cheap child’s version — can be very helpful. Teaching a child to tell time can be quite challenging, but it’s a life skill that every one of us needs.
New ways of time keeping are being developed today.

You are going to read the text aloud. You have 1.5 minutes to read the text silently, and then be ready to read it aloud. Remember that you will not have more than 2 minutes for reading aloud.
Water covers over 70% of the Earth’s surface. It is a very important resource for people and the environment. Water pollution affects drinking water, rivers, lakes, and oceans all over the world. In many developing countries, safe drinking water is still a problem. Over 1000 children die every year as a result of diseases caused by water pollution.
Therefore, many companies develop technical devices that people can use in their homes to purify water. These devices improve the quality of stored water and greatly reduce the risk of illness and death.
Humans have now realised the significance of clean water as a foundation for life. In recent years, more and more organisations and councils have been working hard to educate, protect, restore waterways, and encourage practices that help to preserve water ecosystems from destruction.
You are going to take part in a telephone survey. You have to answer six questions. Give full answers to the questions. Remember that you have 40 seconds to answer each question.
Electronic assistant: Hello! This is the electronic assistant of the club Money Matters. Our purpose is to improve financial competence of teenagers and young adults. We kindly ask you to take part in our survey. Please answer six questions. The survey is anonymous, so you don’t need to give your name. Let’s start.
Electronic assistant: How do you get your pocket money?
Student: (pause 40 seconds) I get my pocket money 2 times a week. And during the month I do my best to save up and not to live on shoestring at the end of the month.
Electronic assistant: What do you usually buy with your pocket money?
Student: (pause 40 seconds) First of all, I can't do without coffee so everyday afterclasses I pop in corner coffeshop to drink several cups of coffee. Secondly, I am a shopoholic. That is why I spend almost all my pocket money on clothes in chase of obtaining pieces from the latest collection.
Electronic assistant: Where do you prefer to do the shopping, at the shopping mall or on the Internet? Why?
Student: (pause 40 seconds)Nowadays it’s becoming more and more popular to shop online. I’m firmly convinced that it’s the most comfortable way. You just surf the Internet and look through the enormous range of goods. Moreover, you can compare prices and find a real bargain. Also, you can have your purchases delivered. It’s amazingly easy and saves a lot of time and energy. Thus, if you’re not a fan of shopping like me, do it online.
Electronic assistant: Would you like to have a part-time job to earn more pocket money? Explain why.
Student: (pause 40 seconds) To tell you the truth I would like to find a job. But the thing is that I am too busy to have it. My workload is huge and overhelming mainly because I have classes until 4 pm then I do sports and after all I have to cook somethinf for the dinner for my family. All in all, I am exhausted at the end of the day even without having a job.
Electronic assistant: What would you advise a teenager who wants to buy an expensive thing but doesn’t have enough money for that?
Student: (pause 40 seconds) First of all, you should speak to your parents and try to convince them to lend you more money. If it doesn't work, try to save up during several months.
Electronic assistant: Would you like to be rich in the future? Why?
Student: (pause 40 seconds) It might sound suprising, but I don't want to be rich. As far as I am concerned, all rich people are evel, cruel and pushy. What's more, I am sure the real happiness has nothing to do with richness. And relly precious things you can never ever buy for money.
Electronic assistant: This is the end of the survey. Thank you very much for your time.
