Right now I’m making changes to the way I live. I want to have a green lifestyle. I can’t ride a bike, so I always walk to college. I take the bus when I go shopping and I always buy organic food. It’s healthy for me and for the planet. I’m also reusing my bags5 and not throwing them away. I’m doing a lot of things at home to help. I don’t leave my computer on when I’m not using it and I recycle all my trash. I have a different recycling bin for paper, plastic, and glass and I’m trying not to throw lots of food away. I know it’s important to save water as well as energy. When I brush my teeth, I turn off the10 faucet, and I don’t use the dishwasher.

  7. 7. Full Placement Test Part 2  Section 3Read the text below. For questions 54 to 58, choose the best answer (a, b, c, or d).1 When I was young, I didn’t really appreciate my parents, especially my mom. I always thought she was too strict and we would often fight. I guess most teenagers argue with their parents at some time, but with us it was almost everyday. One problem was that I just don’t think she understood me. She always said I didn’t respect her, which just wasn’t true.5 I had a curfew and I hated it. When I was late, they would ground me for a week and that just made me even angrier. They’d nag me about my appearance and how messy my room was, but at least they never stopped my allowance. Now our relationship is really good and she’s my best friend in many ways. If I need advice she’s certainly the first person I turn to.10 However, if I have children in the future, I think I’ll do things very differently. To start with, I don’t think I’ll give them too many rules. If you do, all they’ll do is disobey you. It’s also important to listen to their opinions and talk honestly to them. I still think we’ll fight, but not too often.54 Why didn’t Tom get along with his mom when he 57 What does nag in line 6 mean? was young? a criticize or tell someone what to do a She didn’t respect him. b messy b He was a teenager c a time or deadline by when someone c She was very strict needs to be home d He didn’t respect her d to admire someone55 What made him angry? 58 When Tom has children what won’t he do? a Not being understood a Listen to them b Arguing with his mom b Behave the same as his parents c Having a curfew c Be honest with them d Not being allowed out d Argue with them56 What didn’t his parents do? a Tell him what time to be home b Get upset about his appearance c Stop his allowance d Tell him to clean up his room Photocopiable © Macmillan Publishers Ltd. 2011

  11. 11. Full Placement Test Part 3  Section 3Read the text below. For questions 87 to 92, choose the best answer (a, b, c, or d).1 Water is one of the most precious commodities in the world. Without water there is no life. For many of us, water is something we take for granted; we turn on the faucet and there it is; we open a bottle and pour ourselves a glass of mineral water to drink; we take a shower in the morning.5 Often the only time we hear about water is in connection to severe weather, either a flood or a drought. However, according to the World Health Organization WHO 884 million people do not have access to safe drinking water and more than two and a half billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. Around 4,000 children die every day from drinking dirty water. Can you imagine that? That’s one child every twenty seconds!10 In recent years, the term “water footprint” has started to be used as a way of measuring water consumption. In the developing world, the average person uses around 10 liters of water a day for their drinking, washing, and cooking. In comparison, the average European uses 200 liters while in the USA the figure is 400 liters. It’s predicted that in the next 20 years humans will use 40% more water than they do now.87 How is water described in the opening paragraph? 90 What does water footprint in line 10 mean? a Something we all have a The amount of water you use b Something that is very valuable b The amount of water there is c Something we don’t really need c The water people use for washing d Something rare d The lack of clean water in the world88 How are almost a billion people affected by water? 91 What’s the weekly water consumption of the average person in a developing country? a Floods a 10 liters b Droughts b 70 liters c Lack of clean water c 200 liters d Not having enough water d 400 liters89 How many children die every minute because they don’t have clean water? 92 According to the text, what is likely to happen in the future? a Less than 1 a We will run out of water b About 3 b The amount of water we have will increase c Around 50 c There will be a decrease of around 40% d 4,000 in water use d Water consumption will increase Photocopiable © Macmillan Publishers Ltd. 2011
