Task 2

Read the text about tea-making. Then read the sentences below and decide whether they are True (T) or False (F). Circle the right answer. There is one example given.

Tea – a popular drink

Tea is a non-alcoholic drink prepared by pouring boiling water over dried tea-leaves.
It is the most popular drink in many countries.

In 1990 about five and a half billion kilogrammes of dried tea were produced. India has always played an important role in world tea production. Today India produces about one and a half billion kilogrammes each year. China is the second largest producer of tea with about one billion kilogrammes every year. Other tea-producing countries are: Indonesia, Kenya and Sri Lanka.

Great Britain imports more tea than any other country: about 400 million kilogrammes every year. On average, about 7 kgs of tea are drunk by each person every year in Great Britain. People in the United States drink about 3 kilogrammes of tea per person each year.

The tea plant grows in tropical and subtropical climates. The plant is evergreen and grows quickly in low places where the air is warm. However, the finest tea comes from places between 400 and 1200 metres high, because the plant grows more slowly in cooler climates. Tea plants have small, white, sweet-smelling flowers and each flower produces three seeds that look like hazelnuts.

Workers pick the leaves off the bush by hand. A worker can pick about 18 kilogrammes of tea leaves a day, enough to make about 4 kilogrammes of manufactured tea. Machines are also used to pick tea leaves, but tea of the highest quality is generally produced from the leaves that have been picked by hand.

There are three main kinds of tea: black, green and oolong - a special kind of tea. They differ in the method used to process the leaves. The processing takes place either in a factory or near it. All tea-producing countries manufacture black tea, but the green and oolong tea comes from China, Japan and Taiwan.

Example: Tea is an evergreen plant, which grows as a bush…………………….. T F

1. People drink tea in many countries. ………………………… ………,,……. T F
2. Every year India produces half a billion kilogrammes of tea. ……………… T F
3. The second biggest tea-producing country is China. ………………………… T F

Young Americans for peace

0._ E_
Many countries criticize America for using its military power to get what it wants. But not all Americans believe in war. Many young Americans hate war and some of them are even prepared to give their lives for peace.

1. ___
Before the war with Iraq, more than a million Americans protested against the war. There were crowds of about 100,000 people in both New York and Washington DC. These were the largest protests against war since those against the Vietnam War of the 1960s and 1970s.

At these protests there were people of different backgrounds, religions and ages, including many teenagers. A lot of people there were protesting for the first time. People had many different reasons for protesting against the war, like Billy Noseworthy, 18 and Erica Lillquist, 17. Billy’s religion doesn’t allow war. ‘You should not dehumanize* anybody and war is the worst example of dehumanization’, he explained. Erica isn’t against all war but she prefers diplomatic solutions.

Many Americans are very patriotic and some people thought that the protesters were anti-American. ‘The anti-war movement doesn’t have to support Saddam Hussein’, said Seth Green, a 27-year-old American who was at the San Francisco march*. Seth says that he wanted ‘to send the message that you can believe America is a great country and still be anti-war.’

Some young Americans are more extreme in their political views about peace. Rachel Corrie was a 20-year-old anti-war protester. She organized peace events when she was a teenager in Washington State where she grew up. In 2002 she arrived in Israel to protest against the war.

Rachel Corrie worked with other activists from the international Solidarity Movement. The Israeli army killed her when she was trying to stop them destroying a Palestinian building. Rachel’s parents believed what their daughter did was right. They were very proud of her. ‘Rachie was filled with love and a sense of duty to our fellow men and she gave her life trying to protect those people who could not protect themselves’, Rachel’s father said.

War harms everyone, especially children. The statistics show that the number of children who, as a result of war, have been separated from their families is more than one million. Much higher is the number of those who have been killed or disabled.
