  • (Man): “Saúl, I have a proposition for you,” said Sasha as the two ate breakfast. “I want you to come to a party with me tonight.” Saúl looked at his younger sister carefully because he knew that, if she was inviting him, there had to be a trick somewhere. “It is out in the country,” Sasha continued hesitatingly, “and there will be some incredible fireworks.” Saúl could tell that Sasha was omitting some important information, so he just looked at her until she smiled awkwardly and added, “It’s an astronomy party. A bunch of my friends and our science teacher are gathering to watch tonight’s meteor shower, and Mom says I can only go if you take me. So, will you?” Saúl sighed because he knew there was no winning in this situation since, if he said no, his parents would be disappointed, and if he said yes, he would have to spend the evening being completely bored. Maybe he could take his homework and work on it in the car. That night, Saúl and Sasha drove out into the country. Sasha was prepared for the trip; she had brought blankets to lie on, snacks to eat, and even hot chocolate to share. Saúl was surprised at how many people had shown up! The hillside was covered with dozens of people. “Saúl, come and meet my friends,” called Sasha. He sighed again and walked over to the group gathered around his sister. She politely greeted her friends. He quickly noticed one of the girl’s older sisters standing nearby. “Hello, I’m Saúl,” he said with a smile. “Welcome to the party. I’m Vivian,” she replied. “I imagine it is going to be amazingly boring,” Saúl explained. “My father is the astronomer who arranged it,” replied Vivian. Saúl put his head down in embarrassment. “Look, there’s the first meteor,” Vivian pointed out. Saúl gasped when he looked up and saw a fiery red trail crossing the black velvet sky. As the meteor began to fade, he glanced over to see Vivian smiling at him. He thought that perhaps a star party was much more interesting than he had ever imagined.(Pause 3 seconds)ESL Grade 8 Practice Test 2011 Page 12 of 20

  • (Man): Héctor Rivera felt nervous this morning. Puerto Rico was so different from home. Sure, he liked the fact that he could go to the beach a lot more, now. On top of that, Tía Monica and Tío Jake were great. He loved living with them. Still, would the new school be like the school back in Brooklyn? He didn’t think so. There was no more time to think, though, because the bus had pulled up to the school. “Here goes nothing,” Héctor thought, as he opened the door to his assigned classroom. He looked at all the unfamiliar faces—the students were in a circle, facing one another. Then Héctor walked to the desk and handed his transfer slip to the teacher. “Welcome, Mr. Rivera,” the teacher said. “I’m Mr. Saldaño.” Then he introduced Héctor to the class and showed him where to sit in the circle. “We were sharing some of our writing, Héctor, but now I think we’ll stop and do something else,” Mr. Saldaño said. He then told the students in the circle to say their names and tell two things about themselves. “That way,” he said, “Héctor will know a little about each of you.” One boy, whose name was Miguel, said, “Two things about me? Okay. One: I love to surf at Tres Palmas. Two: I want to know about Brooklyn!” Mr. Saldaño said, “We’ll let Héctor talk after all of you have introduced yourselves. He’s the new one, so we need to let him know who we are, first.” By the time it was Héctor’s turn, he felt much more ready to speak. “Okay, you heard my name. It’s Héctor. One thing about me is that I like swimming in the ocean, and I’m glad I can do that here. Another thing is that I want to know more about Puerto Rico. It sounds like all of you can help me with that.” “Tell us about Brooklyn,” Mr. Saldaño said. “I can’t tell you everything,” Héctor said, “but I can tell you that the kids at my school there are as nice as the kids in this class.” “That’s a good start,” Mr. Saldaño said. “Welcome to our class and to our island, Héctor.”(Pause 3 seconds)(Narrator): Now listen to question number 13.ESL Grade 8 Practice Test 2011 Page 15 of 20
