I. READING

Przeczytaj uważnie zaczerpnięte z prasy informacje o książkach, a następnie odpowiedz na pytania 1 – 6. W kratkę obok każdego pytania wpisz odpowiednią literę, oznaczającą właściwą pozycję książkową. Nie możesz dwukrotnie udzielić tej samej odpowiedzi. Informacja o jednej z książek została podana dodatkowo i nie pasuje do żadnego pytania. Za każdą poprawną odpowiedź otrzymasz 1 punkt.



A Scorpia by Anthony Horowitz

If somebody asked a boy aged between 8 and 12 who his greatest fictional hero is, the answer would probably not be Harry Potter, but Alex Rider. The reluctant teenage spy, blackmailed into working for MI6, has now saved the world four times, and is back in Scorpia.


B Sweets by Tim Richardson

Among the things for which there is no substitute, I count a Mars bar. On Tim Richardson’s say-so, I’m ready to add to this list a Japanese confection called ‘everyburger’ (sesame biscuits stuck together with chocalate paste). This is a fascinating book about sweets and desserts for those who like making them, eating them or just reading about them.


C The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.

A murder mystery with a difference. Haddon’s novel is “written” by Christopher, a 15-year-old narrator with Asperger’s syndrome, trying to discover who killed his neighbour’s dog. A very original, unusal book – very enjoyable to read.


D The Wars of the Roses by Julie Brooks

A fascinating, brilliantly written book presenting a comprehensive picture of 15th- century England and the figths between the supporters of the House of Lancaster and the House of York, the most powerful families in the kingdom at that time.


E The A-Z of What to Cook by Kenneth James

James has filled his lovely tome with interesting facts – such as that monks classified frogs as fish in order to have something different to eat on Fridays. There are also many references to French handbooks of gastronomy. If you want to know seven ways to cook a hare or 20 things to do with a sole, then this book is an entertaining and instructive guide. This book is useful when you want to impress your guests by your cooking.


F The Essential Difference by Simon Baron-Cohen

On the surface, much of this book, written by a famous psychologist, seems to present a stereotype: women’s brains are programmed for sympathising while men’s brains for systematising. In other words, men are organised and efficient, women sharing and caring. In fact, this is a fascinating popular science book on human brains, genes and pshychology.


G Telegram from Guernica by Nicholas Rankin.

The life of the war correspondent and soldier George Steer was short but exceptionally full. In his absorbing book, the journalist Nicholas Rankin tells Steer’s story neither gloryfying nor judging him. The author presents a balanced and subtle portrait of an extraordinary man.





Which book would be chosen by somebody who


1

wants to learn how to prepare a special meal for some special guests?




2

3

likes reading biographies?




4

is interested in scientific explanations of human behaviour?




5

Be Prepared


Interviews can be scary experiences and the only way to calm your fears is to ‘be prepared’. The best way to start is by finding out as much about the company as possible. Ring the company’s marketing department and get them to send you a copy of the annual report. Use it to find useful pieces of information that you can drop into the conversation at your interview. Another good tip is to look up the company’s website which is likely to be full of background information, history and up-to-date news. The more you know before your interview, the more confident you’ll feel and appear.


Think of different questions you are likely to be asked. Take a piece of paper and write a subject in the centre. Draw several lines branching out from the subject. Then, for each line, write down a question you might be asked on that subject and think about how you would answer it positively.
It is also a good idea to get some practice under your belt. Ask your family and friends to run through a mock interview with you and give you honest feedback on how you look and sound.
You may be more knowledgeable about the company than the managing director, but when it comes to the interview no amount of preparation can prevent the butterflies in your stomach, the dryness in your throat and the pounding of your heart. A little adrenalin is healthy, but you don’t want to appear like a startled rabbit caught in the headlights. So try to keep it in perspective: an interview is not a firing squad. The worst thing that can happen is that you don’t get the job. Take sensible precautions to prevent feeling tense: wear something comfortable, leave yourself plenty of time to get there, use the toilet before you go in and ask for a glass of water. A few quiet deep breathing exercises will make you look and feel less agitated.
It’s unlikely you’ll get the first job you’re interviewed for, but the good news is that you will get better at it – practice doesn’t make perfect but it helps. And comfort yourself with the thought that in a few years’ time, it might be you sitting on the other side of the desk.
