objectives of the lessons 1 to 15. The estimated time of the test is 60 minutes and it is divided in three parts:
Listening = 10 marks
Reading = 10 marks

*In the Progress Report (Relatrio de Aproveitamento) the total of 30 marks is converted to 20 marks.

Final Assessment (Final test)

The format of this assessment is similar to the CA1 (Midterm Test), which you took in the middle of the course. However, in this Final Test there is one more part which focuses on written production, so
you will be required to write a text in appropriate style with no reference to dictionaries or other materials. The choices for the written production are based on the topics and language structure
practised during the course through the Communicative Writing tasks.
The estimated time for this Final Test is 100 minutes and it is divided in four parts:
Listening = 10 marks
Reading = 10 marks
Language in use (grammar and vocabulary) = 10 marks
Communicative writing = 10 marks / Total = 40 marks*
*In the Progress Report (Relatrio de Aproveitamento) the total of 40 marks is converted to 30 marks.

volunteer post with an NGO.

Communicative Writing 1 Writing a letter to the editor (of a newspaper/magazine)


Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing with reference to the article on graffiti artists published in one of your
latest issues. I would like to express my opinion about this topic and share my views
with other readers.
To my mind, graffiti art should be more respected and encouraged especially in big
cities for a number of reasons.
Firstly, big cities are usually very crowded and full of buildings made of concrete, metal
and glass and it makes them very gray and cold. Graffiti art can give cities a more
colourful appearance and make our journeys more interesting because we can enjoy a
different view.
Secondly, it is important to say that graffiti artists do not usually have enough support
from the government to produce their pieces of art and have to face a lot of
bureaucracy to obtain a simple permission to use a wall or area in a public place.
Furthermore, they also have to fight the resistance of people local residents, even after
having the permission granted by the government.
Lastly, I believe we also need more places for street artists such as art galleries because
they need appropriate areas to show their art. Obviously, if we had more places for
street artists, we would not have them using several public places for their art.
All in all, I feel very strongly that graffiti artists should receive more support from the
government and have appropriate places to expose their art. Apart from this, these
artists should have special permissions to use some public places in the city to draw
their graffiti because they make the city more beautiful.
Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir or Madam,


I am writing to you interested in the post of a volunteer with your NGO advertised in
your website.
[general information about you]
I am twenty-one years old and I come from Saudi Arabia. I have been to England once,
where I stayed for seven months. I have been studying English since 2002.
[information about your studies and abilities]
I study business and finance at a local college of further education in the evenings and
I am graduating in December this year. I can speak four languages fluently which are
Spanish, French, Arabic and English.
[work experience or other relevant activities]
I worked in a nursery school for one year in France after I had worked in Spain as a
teacher. In 2010 I lived with an Australian family for about a year. I used to help them
with their children and cooking.
I would like to know if in this job I should help children and how long the programme
lasts. Moreover, you have mentioned the applicant should speak some languages but
we do not know what languages are requested. I would also like to ask about the
experience required and the accommodation for the programme.
I look forward to receiving your e-mail.
Yours faithfully,

Communicative Writing 3 An opinion essay in favour/against the use of nuclear energy as
Communicative Writing 4 Making arrangements.
the main source of energy in the future.
Formal

Is there a practical, powerful and clean source of energy for the world? Some say
nuclear energy would be the best answer to this. From my point of view, nuclear
energy cannot be a good alternative because it has more negative points than positive
ones.

Dear Mr Johnson,

First of all, nobody can deny that nuclear energy is cleaner than oil, coal and gas
because it produces no smoke and toxic gases which are usually released when we
burn fossil fuels. Smoke from fossil fuels lead to air pollution and some diseases such as
lung cancer, bronchitis, asthmas, etc. That is why it is obviously healthier to use nuclear
energy.

We would like to invite you to an international conference with well-known business


leaders on 9th November in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Would 9th November be convenient?

On the other hand, nuclear energy has some disadvantages. Firstly, using nuclear
energy is very dangerous because reactors produce nuclear waste products emitting
dangerous radiation, which is extremely harmful for the body and can cause death. It
can also cause unexpected horrible accidents with extensive damages to both the
environment and people, like the nuclear accident in Chernobyl.

John Smith

Secondly, nuclear energy encourages the use of nuclear weapons, which is a threat to
the peace in the world. In addition, nuclear energy is so expensive that not every
country can use it.
Lastly, there are lots of other sources of energy that can replace nuclear energy such as
wind energy, solar energy and water energy, which are widely available and also
environmentally-friendly and unlimited.
To sum up, despite the advantages of nuclear energy, using it is still too dangerous. We
should limit its use if we want to use it and we have to be very careful. We could
possibly use other sources of energy which are clean and powerful instead nuclear
energy.

Thank you for attending the workshop Business leadership in the 21st century on 22nd
October. We hope the event has contributed to your professional experience and
expertise.

We would be grateful if you could join us in this conference. Please send us your
confirmation as soon as possible.
Yours sincerely,

Exercise 3 (suggested answers)
[B] In the last five years, Kings of Leon have gone from being
a cult group with a small dedicated following to one of the
worlds biggest rock bands. Last week I took a friend to see
one of their concerts, which the newspaper had asked me to
review. [D] It took place at the Wembley Arena in London,
which is an enormous venue. It was the opening concert in
their world tour which will take in six countries and over 30
venues. I am not a huge fan of their music and so my
expectations were not very high.
In fact, it was an excellent show and I came away still
humming some of their tunes. [C] They opened with Use
Somebody, their catchy new single, but in fact then
continued to play mostly older material. Kings of Leon do not
really put on a show as such. There are no big video screens
at the back, no impressive laser lights. All there is to watch
are four musicians playing their instruments. But the lack of
visual stimulation doesnt actually matter, because the music
is so good and they play with such passion. For two hours I
was spellbound.
[A] The audience, a mixture of die-hard fans and
people who had been attracted more recently by their more
commercial songs, loved it. At 70 per ticket its not a cheap
concert, but if you appreciate good musicianship and great
song-writing, I would thoroughly recommend seeing them.

1 I saw a young girl who stood on the plinth and threw


paper roses into the crowd. I didnt catch one but someone
near me did. There was a message on it. It said that the
girls friend had died of a disease called Cystic Fibrosis and
it gave the name of a website where you could go and
donate money to
find a cure for it. It was quite moving.
2 The guy I saw was displaying his own paintings. He had
four portraits, but you couldnt really make out who they
were of. I think one was of the Dalai Lama. I think he was
hoping that someone in the art world would see them and
buy one. It seemed a bit commercial to me and not really
the point.
3 When I was there, a mime artist the kind you see quite
often in public places in big cities stood without moving
on the plinth for one hour. He was dressed to look like the
stone figure of Lord Nelson that stands on the top of the
column in the middle of Trafalgar Square. Quite intelligent
and witty really, but not something you could watch for
very long at least not for an hour.
4 This woman she must have been about 45 or so was
lifted up and she got out a mop and a bucket and spent the
next 55 minutes cleaning the top of the plinth. I dont know
what point she was trying to make really: that shed spent a
lot of her life doing boring cleaning work? That we need to
look after our public buildings? It wasnt really obvious.
Still, she got a big cheer from the crowd at the end.
5 We went on the last day hoping to see something special,
and I think it probably was a bit more original than some of
the other things that had come before it. A woman was
making a model of a man out of bread rolls. She began with
the legs, putting bread rolls over two upright sticks. He
looked a bit like the Michelin man. Somebody told me that
it was supposed to be in the style of the artist who set up
the whole project, Antony Gormley. Quite imaginative, I
thought.

I = Interviewer, C = Commentator
I In the studio today is Philip Turner, an expert in migration
at the Institute of Economic Studies, who I hope is going to
shed some light on recent trends in UK migration.
Welcome, Philip.
C Thanks. Good to be here.
I So, Philip, its pretty apparent that the majority of the
Polish migrant workers who came here in the last four or
five years are heading home now. Why is that? Is there no
longer any work for them?
C Well, some Polish workers held highly-qualified jobs
doctors and nurses and so onbut most of them didnt.
They did rather unglamorous work such as potato picking
or cleaning, driving buses, working on building sites, that
kind of thing. And yes, that work is more difficult to come
by. Well actually miss them, particularly in agriculture,
because even though a few people here complained about
immigrants taking British jobs, these werent actually the
jobs that British people were queuing up to take.
I But that isnt the whole story, is it? That doesnt explain
why we are also losing skilled workers
C Probably the main reason why theyre leaving is that the
exchange rate, which was once seven zloty to the pound,
now gives only around four. At the same time the Polish
economy is growing at a faster rate than ours, and key
workers like nurses and plumbers are more and more in
demand back home. On top of that, theres the incentive of
getting back to the relatives or families they left behind.
I And you say well miss them
C Well, yes I think Britain will be a poorer place for not
having them. Not just because its a reminder that our own
economy isnt doing so well, which of course it isnt, but
because Polish culture was good for us.

I Can you expand on that?


C Yes, for a start its a much less cynical culture than ours
it attaches great importance to traditional values like hard
work and community and looking after your family. These
are values that we associate more with our parents
generation. In fact, in a way it has been a bit like going back
to another era.
I I know what you mean. A striking example of that is the
way that Polish people working in bars or restaurants treat
you as a customer I find them incredibly polite and
friendly compared to your average English waiter.
C Exactly. Its pretty simple and obvious, youd think, but
Im afraid we British are in danger of losing that kind of
basic social manners. But perhaps some of this culture has
rubbed off on us and even though the Poles are returning,
perhaps a little bit of Polish attitude will remain. I think
thats one of the important things about migration When
cultures mix, often they influence each other in a positive
way.

Perhaps you remember a scene from the film, or book,
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, where he produces
a magical piece of chewing gum that is a three-course meal
all in one: tomato soup followed by roast beef and finishing
with blueberries and ice cream. Fantasy, you think? Maybe
not.

The idea of nano-foods is not to miniaturise food. Instead,


nano-researchers in universities and food companies are
talking about methods that will be able to design foods at a
molecular level and bring any flavour, texture or taste to
our mouths in whatever form we wish through chewing
gum, drinks, or anything else for that matter.
Realistically, such technology may be for the more distant
future, but nano-science is already changing methods of
food production today. It is clear that nano-packaging will
be the first commercial application. Boxes and wrappers
will contain anti-bacterial agents that will make our food
safer and last longer. The next step is that we will then see
nano-particles introduced into the foods themselves, so
that you will not have to boil milk or water to remove the
bacteria. Nano-science will also transform the lives of
people with food allergies. If you are lactose intolerant,
for example in other words, allergic to milk no problem.
The lactose can be removed from the milk by nano-filtering
and replaced with some other sugar.
All this sounds scary, but perhaps it is less frightening than
the amount of chemicals and preservatives we add to our
food now to make it last longer. Defenders of the
technology say these are natural solutions which mean we
can do away with these harmful chemicals. Opponents, on
the other hand, say were playing with fire. They argue that
we dont yet know enough about the effects of these nanoparticles to test them out on large numbers of people. They
are worried that changing the molecular structure of food
could have much deeper consequences. When I drink a
glass of milk, says one critic, I want to know that its going
to my stomach, not that tiny particles could arrive at some
part of my brain that could be changed for the worse.

J = Journalist, C = Curator
J So, you run a museum here dedicated to the Icarian
movement. Can you tell us a little more about it?
C Sure. The movement was founded by a Frenchman,
Etienne Cabet, in the 1840s. He had written a book some
years earlier called The Voyage to Icaria, which was a kind
of blueprint for a perfect society.
J And what was his idea for a perfect society? How would it
work?
C Essentially, it was based on socialist principles. In fact,
Karl Marx was an early fan of his. The idea was that if
everyone shared the work that needed to be done and
shared their property with each other, they could eliminate
poverty.
J I see. So, how did this Frenchman come to live in the USA?
C He felt France was an undemocratic country where poor
people were exploited. So, he went across Paris and other
French cities looking for people who were willing to join
him in establishing a new society. He gathered together a
range of people with different skills farmers, craftsmen,
tailors, and so on and in 1848 less than 100 about 70 of
them in total set sail for America and landed in Texas.
J But were in Iowa now.
