  1. Read the passage about Glastonbury music festival. Fill each blank in the summary with no more than THREE words.
 Glastonbury is the largest outdoors festival of music and performing arts in the world which each year hosts some of the biggest and best artists in the world. Located in the Southwestern county of Somerset on a giant 900-acre farm site in the Vale of Avalon, a place of ancient myths and Kind Arthur legends, festival goers here can expect enlightenment, rude awakenings, bizarre happenings, etc. The festival usually takes place on the second or third weekend in June. The site generally opens on the Wednesday of the festival with impromptu music happening each night until the festival starts proper on the Friday, running through until the Sunday.
The original festival was by donation of a mere £1 (under $2) which included free milk – as the festival is still held today on the site of Worthy Farm, a working dairy farm owned by Britain’s hippest farmer, Michael Eavis. Despite the steep admission charges today, profits do go to good causes – in particular Greenpeace (who sponsor the main Pyramid Stage), Oxfam, Water Aid, and other humanitarian charities.

 The meaning of Mid-Autumn Day is rather different to that in China, though the Vietnamese also celebrate it by eating mooncakes. In Viet Nam the Mid-Autumn Festival is the happiest day for children, during which parents buy their children various kinds of lanterns and snacks.
There are also various activities held to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival in Viet Nam. The main activities include worshipping the God of Earth, and carrying carp-shaped lanterns.
Usually a worshipping platform is set up in the yard during Mid-Autumn night, on which mooncakes, fruits, and snacks are laid. Later family members sit together to eat the food while appreciating the moon.
It’s also a tradition for the Vietnamese to light lanterns during the Mid-Autumn night. It is thought that if people walk at night with a carp lantern in hand, they will be safe from the carp spirit. Now, children hold various kinds of paper lanterns and play in the moonlight, while eating mooncakes during the evening of Mid-Autumn Day.

VIII. Read the passage and answer the questions.

 “Li xi” is an important part in Vietnam’s customs of Tet Festival, especially with children. It is a small amount of money that can bring good fortune to the upcoming year. However, “li xi” is not limited only on the first day, but can even last to the 9th or 10th day of Tet Festival, and given when the adults first met the kids.

Besides the money, the tiny red envelope also has its own meaning. It represents the secrecy and privacy to avoid comparison as adults want children to regard the money as the gift of New Year, instead of being jealous of receiving less than other kids. The red color, the most popular color appearing in Vietnamese festivals, signifies the prosperity and great luck according to Asian’s beliefs.
In the morning of the first day of Lunar New Year, children and parents will visit grandparents’ home, wishing for a happy new year and great health, showing respect and gratitude, and giving gifts. After that, it is grandparents and adults’ turn to give children lucky money to welcome their new age.

1. By whom is the custom loved most?
2. For how long can the custom be applied?
3. Why is a red envelope used?
4. What does the red color signify?
5. Why do adults give “li xi” to children?


  1. Read the following text about leisure activities of Vietnamese teenagers. Match the words in A with their meanings in B.
 A recent survey conducted by TIRA, a Vietnamese research company, highlights problems about the lifestyles of Vietnamese teenagers in urban areas. There is an imbalance in their consumption of time for studying and recreational activities. On average, these teenagers spend 9.5 hours a day on studies at school and at home. They only have about four hours for entertainment. Most of this time is spent on watching television and the internet, where they chat through social networks. The teenagers admit that they use computers to play games and to chat with friends much more than using it for studying purposes. The survey also shows that during summer months, despite having much more free time than during school years, these teenagers still fail to manage their time properly. They stay in bed longer, and then get hooked on games and TV. The time for computers and TV increases significantly to about five or six hours a day, while there is almost no time for physical outdoor activities.
 A B
1. highlight A. a lack of proportion or relation between things
