Write your answers in the space provided as in theexample (0). (i)   EXTRACTS:   Extract Title 0.(example) In England everything is different. You must understand that when people say“England”, they sometimes mean “Great Britain”(England, Scotland and Wales), sometimes the “British Isles” (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), sometimes the “British Isles” (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) – but never just England. A 1. The Englishman uses few words but he shows a lot with them. A European looksat a beautiful place and says, “The river over there is like the Guadalquivir in theSierra de Cazorla and is 650 km long. It runs south-west to the Atlantic Ocean...”You cannot speak like this in England. An Englishman looks at the same place.He is silent for two or three hours and then he says, “It´s pretty, isn´t it?”. 2. This is the most important subject in the land. In Europe, people say , “He is thetype of person who talks about the weather”, to show that somebody is very boring. In England, the weather is always an interesting, exciting subject andyou must be good at talking about it. 3. It was once a good drink; with lemon and sugar it tastes very pleasant. But thenthe British decided to put cold milk and no sugar in it. They made it colourlessand tasteless. In the hands of the English, it became an unpleasant drink, likedirty water. 4. When I arrived in England I thought that I knew English. After I´d been here anhour I realized I did not understand one word. In my first week I learned a fewwords and expressions, but after seven years I knew that I could never use it well.This is sad, but nobody speaks English perfectly. 5. In England, people do not often get excited. They do not enjoy many things butthey love to queue.In Europe, if people are waiting at a bus-stop they look bored and half asleep.When the bus arrives they fight to get on it.One Englishman waits at a bus-stopand, even if there are no other people there, he starts a queue.  Escolas Oficiais de IdiomasProba de Certificación de Nivel BásicoInglés –– XUÑO 2008Comprensión de lectura   3 6. People who build English towns want to make everything difficult. In Europe,doctors, lawyers and people who sell books have their houses and shops together in different parts of the town so you can always find a good doctor everywhere.In England, your address is important. In London, all the doctors live and work inHarley Street, all the book sellers are in the Charing Cross Road... 7. If he puts out his hand to shake yours, do not take it. Smile and wait. When hestops trying to shake your hand, try to shake his. Repeat this game all afternoon or all evening.Your new friend asks you if you are well: “How do you do?”.But do not forget:he does not really want to know.To him it does not matter if you are well or if you are dying of a terrible illness. Do not answer. 8. If you go for a walk with a friend in England, don´t say a single word for hours;if you go for a walk with your dog, talk to it all the time. 9. George Mikes wrote this book to tell the English what he thought about them. Heis both funny and rude about the strange things English people do and say – thethings that make them different from other Europeans. In this book you will learnmany useful rules about being English. From: How to be an Alien, by George Mikes.( Penguin Readers) (ii) TITLES:  Example: A.. England  B. About the book C.
