Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

       Let children learn to judge their own work. A child learning to talk does not learn by being corrected, if corrected he will stop talking. He notices a thousand times a day the difference between the language he uses the language those around him use. Bit by bit, he makes the necessary changes to make his language like other people's. In the same way, children learn to do all the other things, they learn to do them without being taught - to talk, run, climb, whistle, ride a bike - compare their own performances with those of more skilled people, and slowly make the needed changes. But in school we never give a child a chance to find out his mistakes for himself, let alone correct them. We do it all for him. We act as if we thought that he would never notice a mistake unless it was pointed out to him, or correct it unless he was made to. Soon he becomes dependent on the teacher. Let him do it himself. Let him work out, with the help of other children if he wants it. "what this word says, what the answer is to that problem, whether this is a good way of saying or doing this or not."

      If it is a matter of right answer, as it may be in mathematics or science, give him the answer book. Let him correct his own papers. Why should we teachers waste time on such routine work? Our job should be to help the child when he tells us that he can't find the way to get the right answer. Let's end all the nonsense of grades, exams, and marks. Let us throw them all out and let the children learn what all educated persons must someday learn, how to measure their own understanding, how to know what they know or do not know.

      Let them get on with this job in the way that seems most sensible to them, with our help as school teachers if they ask for it. The idea that there is a body of knowledge to be learnt at school and used for the rest of one's life is nonsense in a world as complicated and rapidly changing as ours. Anxious parents and teachers may say, "But suppose they fail to learn something essential, something they will need to get on in the world, won't they?" Don't worry. If it is essential, they will go out into the world and learn it.

Question 17: According to the author, the best way for children to learn things is _________.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

     A lot of advice is available for college leavers heading for their first job. In this article we consider the move to a second job. We are not concerned with those looking for a second temporary position while hunting for a permanent job. Nor are we concerned with those leaving an unsatisfactory job within the first few weeks. Instead, we will be dealing with those of you taking a real step on the career ladder, choosing a job to fit in with your ambitions now that you have learnt your way around, acquired some skills and have some idea of where you want to go.

     What sort of job should you look for? Much depends on your long-term aim. You need to ask yourself whether you want to specialize in a particular field, work your way up to higher levels of responsibility or out of your current employment into a broader field.

    Whatever you decide, you should choose your second job very carefully. You should be aiming to stay in it for two or three years. This job should be studied very carefully when you send your letter of application for your next job. It should show evidence of serious career planning. Most importantly, it should extend you, develop you and give you increasing responsibility. Incidentally, if you are interested in traveling, now is the time to pack up and go. You can do temporary work for a while when you return, pick up where you left off and get the second job then. Future potential employers will be relieved to see that you have got it out of your system, and are not likely to go off again.

One day, I gave my notice, bought an air ticket and traveled for a year.

    Juliette now works as a Personal Assistant to Brenda Cleverdon, the Chief Executive of business in the Community. "In two and a half years I have become more able and my job has really grown, "she says. "Right from the beginning my boss was very keen to develop me. My job title is the same as it was when I started but the duties have changed. From mainly typing and telephone work. I have progressed to doing most of the corespondence and budgets. I also have to deal with a variety of queries, coming from chairmen of large companies to people wanting to know how to start their own business.
