1. Oxford University has been a centre of learning for over 900 years. Today, there are over 16 000 people studying at Oxford, but they are not all British. About 4 000 of them come from other countries. In fact, there are currently students from over 130 countries studying there. Every student at Oxford is a member of a college. There are 39 main colleges, and each college is in a different part of the town.
2. What's the best age for a child to learn how to read? Some people believe that children should learn at as young an age as possible. Because of this, some parents start teaching their children when they are about three years old. Other people believe it's better for a teacher at school to teach a class of children how to read, so many children don't learn to read until they are five or six years old.
3. In most countries, you are only allowed to drive a car on a public road if you have a driving licence. You usually have to pass a driving test in order to get the licence. In European countries, this test is in two parts. The first part is a 'theory' test. You have to answer questions about road safety. The second part is a 'practical' test. You are in a car with an examiner, who tells you where to drive and asks you to do various things, such as parking or reversing around a corner.
4. When was Mozart born? What's the capital of Nigeria? Before the Internet, if we wanted to find out the answers to these questions, we'd have to look them up in reference books, such as encyclopaedias. If we couldn't find the information in books at home, we'd have to go to a public library. This kind of research would often take a very long time. Now, however, as long as you have a computer connected to the Internet, you can find the answers to questions like these in seconds.
5. Although people sometimes confuse astronomy and astrology, they are completely different. Astronomy is the scientific study of the universe. Astronomers study stars, planets and other things in space, such as comets, and record their findings scientifically. Astrology, which is based on the belief that the position of the planets affects human behaviour, is not a science. It is astrologers who write horoscopes in magazines, telling us what they think is going to happen to us in the future.
6. A guide book can be extremely helpful when you're visiting a place for the first time. Guide books provide loads of practical information, such as the opening times and entrance fees of the main attractions, and often recommend sights to visit and places to stay. They can also provide interesting information about the history of the place and famous people who lived there.
7. Most people who go to university are 18 or 19 years old. They've just left school, and want to get a degree before getting a job. However, not everyone starting a university course is a recent school-leaver. Every year, a few people enter university who left school twenty, thirty, forty — even sometimes sixty! — years before. They're called 'mature students'. They may not be as young as most students, but they're just as keen to learn something new.

No visit to London is complete without a trip to Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of the British monarch (currently Queen Elizabeth II).

Oliver glanced at his watch. There were ten minutes left until the supermarket closed and he was rushing round, quickly dropping things he needed for the weekend into his trolley. He hadn't been in his own flat long and now his mother had invited herself for dinner the following day. He really wanted to impress her with his ability to cope on his own, but he knew that the usual critical comments would soon appear if everything wasn't perfect. He hoped that the three days he'd spent cleaning the place from top to bottom wouldn't be wasted, and he'd even gone so far as painting the front door. His mother wouldn't notice that, though, of course. What she would notice was the dust on top of the pictures, or the old sofa, or one of a thousand other things that Oliver had forgotten about. Still, he was determined to give her a good meal, and maybe that would put her in a slightly better mood than usual.
He checked his shopping list again and bent over to look through his trolley. He mentally ticked off the items and then realised that he still needed eggs. As he straightened up to set off towards the dairy section, there was an enormous collision, a clatter of tins and a loud shriek of pain. When Oliver had recovered his balance, he saw an attractive woman of about nineteen on her knees, putting tins and vegetables back into a handheld basket.
'Why don't you watch where you're going?' she snapped at him over her shoulder. 'Some people just have no manners. Honestly...'
'Er ... sorry,' stammered Oliver.'Let me help you.' He began to pick tins up.'It really wasn't my fault, though, you know. I was just...' The girl grabbed a tin of tuna from his hands.
'Never mind,' she said, her basket now full, and she strode off down the aisle without looking back. Oliver watched her go and sighed. He never seemed to have much luck with girls. Maybe that was just what he needed to show his mother how grown up he was. He turned back to his own trolley and began to push it. Maybe if she came to dinner and he introduced her to an intelligent, charming young woman then she would stop calling him every day to check he was okay. As Oliver thought about this possibility, something caught his eye and he stopped his trolley. There was a red leather purse on top of his shopping. It must have come out of the girl's basket and landed in his trolley. Oliver quickly glanced around, looking for the girl. She wouldn't be able to pay for her shopping. He picked up the purse, left his trolley and sprinted towards the line of checkouts.
When he got there, he scanned the lines of customers waiting to pay. There were about a dozen queues, but Oliver couldn't see the girl in any of them. Thinking that she must still be shopping somewhere in the supermarket, Oliver turned to go and find her when he suddenly heard a familiar voice at the front of the queue next to him.
'I'm sure I had it here a minute ago. I want to speak to the manager. I think it's been stolen. It must be someone in this supermarket because I know ...'
She stopped as she realised that Oliver was standing next to her, holding her purse out towards her.
'Lost something?' Oliver asked.
The girl smiled, then recognised Oliver and frowned, before her expression softened again and she took the purse with a faint smile on her lips.
'Thanks,' she said quietly.

A 15 Oliver is anxious to prove to his mother that he
1) has learned a lot about cooking.
2) is capable of living independently.
3) knows she looked after him very well.
4) has learned not to be so negative.
A 16 When she visits his flat, Oliver's mother will
1) appreciate the effort he has made.
2) find something she isn't happy about.
3) help him do up his flat.
4) remind him to get new furniture.
A 17 The young woman drops her shopping because
1) she and Oliver bump into each other.
2) her basket is too full.
3) she is frightened by Oliver.
4) she feels pain in her knees.
A 18 When Oliver offers to help, the young woman
1) forgives him for what he has done.
2) shows that she doesn't trust him.
3) thanks him despite her anger.
4) refuses to listen to his explanation.
A 19 Oliver thinks that his mother might give him more independence if he
1) found a friend for her.
2) had a girlfriend.
3) told her to stop phoning him.
4) had nicer friends.
A 20 When he sees the purse, Oliver realises that
1) he might be accused of theft.
2) there's no money in it.
3) he could get his revenge.
4) it fell into his trolley by accident.
A 21 Oliver manages to find the girl because he
1) sees her standing in one of the queues.
2) knows where she is still shopping.
3) recognises her voice when she speaks.
4) joins the same queue as her.
