I used to go into the country to (1) sketch animals and plants, carrying my drawing materials in a bag. One day I was
walking across a field, looking (2) for rabbits to draw. Lost in thought, I had not noticed a bull running towards me. About one
hundred meters (3) ahead was a tree under which I intended to sit and draw. Suddenly, I (4) heard a noise behind me. I turned
and saw the bull. I knew that a bull cannot see (5) clearly and notices only shape and movement. I did not panic but ran towards
the tree, keeping the tree, myself and the bull in a (6) straight line. To distract the bull, I then threw my bag to the right, so it
was out of the line of the tree. The bull saw this sudden movement and headed towards the bag. I (7) reached the tree and
climbed up it. From there I watched the bull (8) attracking my bag with its horns and feet. It continued to do this for fifteen
minutes I was very (9) pleased to be, up the tree. (10) eventually the bull was satisfied and move off. I waited until it was a very
long way (11) off and then got down from the tree and picked up my bag. I left the field as (12) fast as I could and then looked
inside my bag. Everything in it was (13) totally ruined.
B. Read the passage, then decide whether the following statements are true (T) or false (F)
I knew it was going to be a bad day when, on the way to the airport, the taxi driver told me he was lost.

I had booked my flight over the telephone, so when we finally arrived, I had to rush to the reservation desk to pay for my
ticket. The woman at the desk told me that my name was not on the passenger list. It took fifteen minutes to realize that she had
spelled my name incorrectly. She gave me the ticket and told me I'd better check in my luggage quickly or I'd miss my night. I
was the last person to get on the plane.
I found my seat and discovered that I was sitting next to a four-year old boy who had a cold. I sat down and wondered if
anything else could go wrong. I hate flying, especially take-off, but the plane took off and everything seemed to be all right.
Then, a few minutes later, there was a funny noise and everything started to shake. I looked out of the window and – oh my God
- there was smoke coming out of the wing. All I could think was "The engine are on fire. We are going to crash. I am too young
to die,"
Almost immediately, the captain spoke to us in a very calm voice "Ladies and gentlement. This is your captain speaking.
We are having a slight technical problem with one of our engines. There is no need to panic. We will have to return to the
airport. Please remain seated and keep your seat belts fastened."
A few minutes later, we were coming on to land. The pilot made a perfect landing on the runway. It was over. We were safe.
That day I decided not to fly again. I caught another taxi and went home. But as I closed the front door. I looked down at my
case. Somehow I had picked up the wrong suitcase.

Last year I went to Nepal for three months to work in a hospital. I think it's important to see as much of a country as you can,
but it is difficult to travel around Nepal. The hospital let me have a few days’ holiday, so I decided to go into the jungle and I
asked a Nepalese guide, Kamal Rai, to go with me.
We started preparing for the trip at six in the morning, and left camp with two elephants carrying our equipment. It was hot
but Kamal made me wear shoes and trousers to protect me from snakes. In the jungle there was a lot of wildlife, but we were
trying to find big cats, especially tigers. We climbed onto the elephants' backs to get better view, but it is unusual to find tigers in
the afternoon because they sleep in the heat of the day.
Then, in the distance, we saw a tiger, and Kamal told me to be very quiet. We crept nearer and found a dead deer, still
bleeding. This was the tiger's lunch! Suddenly I started to feel very frightened.
We heard the tiger a second before we saw it. It jumped out like a flash of lightning, five hundred kilos plus and four meters
long. I looked into its eyes and face, and saw right down the animal's throat. It grabbed Kamal's leg between its teeth, but I
managed to pull Kamal away. One of our elephants ran at the tiger and made it go back into the grass, so we quickly escaped to
let the tiger eat its lunch. That night it was impossible to sleep!
