PROBA SCRISA LA LIMBA ENGLEZA
ENGLEZA A
 

I. A. Translate into English:
La vreo câteva zile, primii o scrisoare de la Mama Corneliei, câteva rânduri, în care mi se cerea, fără mult înconjur, să curm o corespondență prea asiduă, al cărei rost nu putea fi identificat pe linia unor planuri realizabile. Am citit scrisoarea încă o dată și încă o dată. Da, era clară. Mai clară decât aș fi putut să mi-o imaginez vreodată! Impresia ce o lăsasem familiei ei în Banat fusese așadar mai prejos de orice așteptări, ceea ce de altfel era de prevăzut, căci nici înainte, nici după această întâmplare, niciodată nu mi-am aranjat existența spre a face vreo impresie.

I. B.1.Write out the sentences, using the most logical form of the verbs in brackets (0.25x10=2.5 points):

Almost every part of the world has experienced an earthquake in recent years, and almost every part of the world (experience) earthquakes in the years to come. Since the ancient Chinese (begin) (keep) records several thousand year ago, more than 13 million (occur) worldwide by some estimates. What (cause) them? Different cultures (develop) various myths (explain) these violent earth movements. According to a Japanese myth, a playful fish (live) in the mud under the earth and whenever it feels like (play), it (wave) its fat tail around in the mud. The result? Earthquakes.

2. Give the passive counterpart for the following sentences (0.50x3=1.5points):
1. All his relatives approved of his decision.
2. People were using the tennis court, so we couldn’t play.
3. They saw the children stealing apples from the farmer’s orchard.

3. Rewrite the following sentences beginning as shown by making use of a modal verb: (3 points)
a. She finally managed to phone Bill in the evening. / She…
b. What is it that she is thinking of, I wonder./ What…
c. This door is impossible to open. / The door….

4. Find the mistake in each of the following sentences and correct it(0.50x4=2 points):
1. What does a patient tell a doctor is confidential.
2. The teacher opened the window for letting some fresh air in the room.
3. For how long ago have you been in love with John?
4. They are here for more than a year.

II. A. Translate into Romanian:

Not content with having devoted his career to gathering the biggest fortune in history, Bill Gates has said that he wants to devote the rest of his life to giving it away. Microsoft’s chief software architect is not alone; there are other dirt-rich people who have committed themselves to such deals. That the moneyed are generous is welcome, but that the best brains in business take the giving seriously matters, too. Philanthropy, done well, is a serious undertaking. Too often, the money is wasted away. The giving is partly the result of all the receiving that has been going on. In an economy that tends to offer huge rewards to the best, the ranks of the very wealthy have recently been filling as fast as their pockets. A survey published this week identified 85,000 people with more than $30 million last year, over 10% more than in 2004.

II. B. Read the text below and then answer the following questions.

In the first essay in On Photography, I argued that while an event known through photographs certainly becomes more real than it would have been had one never seen the photographs, after repeated exposure it also becomes less real. As much as they create sympathy, photographs diminish sympathy. (...) The question turns on a view of the principal medium of the news, television. An image is drained of its force by the way it is used, where and how often it is seen. Images shown on television are by definition images of which, sooner or later, one tires. What looks like insensitivity has its origin in the instability of attention that television is organized to arouse and to satisfy by its excess of images. Image-excess keeps attention light, mobile, relatively indifferent to content. Image-flow excludes a privileged image. The whole point of television is that one can switch channels, that it is normal to switch channels, to become restless, bored. Consumers droop. They need to be stimulated, jump-started, again and again. (Susan Sontag, Regarding the Pain of Others, 2005)
[To droop= (about flowers) to hang downwards]

Tasks
1. State in no more than 15 words what is the main topic of this passage from Sontag's text.
2. What is the effect of photographic images on the viewer, according to Sontag? What is paradoxical in his/ her response?
3. What is the effect of channel switching?
4. Discuss the metaphor in "Consumers droop".

I. A. Translate into English:

- Știi ce, spune la un moment dat femeia, am să-ți dau numele și adresa mea. Am să țin minte numele și adresa ta. Nu știu cât mai putem sta de vorbă. Într-un ceas ori într-o zi, într-o săptămână, voi fi trimisă în altă parte. Nu hotărâm că trebuie să te caut ori să mă cauți. Acum, de exemplu, nu-mi dau seama dacă aș vrea să te întânesc. Peste zece ani, poate douăzeci, voi gândi altfel. Timpul ne arată că lucrurile au altă importanță decât aceea pe care le-o atribuim la un moment dat.
Bărbatul spune un nume și o adresă. Femeia spune cum o cheamă și unde locuiește, ori, mai bine zis, unde locuia înainte de a fi arestată.

I. B. 1.Write out the sentences, using the most logical form of the verbs in brackets ( 0.25x6=1.5 points):

I (buy) a new alarm clock the other day, when I actually (see) someone (shoplift). I just (finish) paying for my clock and as I (turn) round an elderly woman slowly (put) a silver plate into a bag.

2. Rewrite the following sentences beginning as shown by making use of a modal verb: (1x3=3 points)
1. When he was young, he was in the habit of buying a new book every other week./ He…
2. You probably left your keys in the car. / You…
3. Don’t go there, if you don’t want to. / You…

3. Fill in with ‘a’, ‘an’, ‘the’ only where necessary: (10 x 0,30=3 points)
1. She isn’t at …home because she’s gone to… hospital to visit her grandmother who is ill with… pneumonia.
2. … place with…lowest attitude in relation to …level of…sea is in …Holland.
3. Our cousins have gone to… Hawaiian Islands for… whole summer.
4. Find the mistake in each of the following sentences and correct it (0.50x3=1.5 points):
1. How long is since you settled in this town?
2. The new flat is very enormous.
3. The latest news of the earthquake survivors are very disturbing.

II. A. Translate into Romanian:

What is it that makes a waterfall the best? It isn’t height. There are many immensely tall waterfalls, some cascading thousands of feet. Of course, when people go to see a waterfall, they expect to see a serious amount of water. But even here size isn’t everything. Tourists who appreciate waterfalls for their sheer breathtaking beauty know that Iguaçu Falls, on the border between Brazil and Argentina are far superior. Iguaçu’s pristine tropical setting makes it one of the planet’s great natural phenomena. Visitors shall be rewarded not only by an awesome display of raw water-power, but also by the surrounding spectacle of a rainforest breached by no fewer than 275 separate waterfalls bursting over Iguaçu’s three-kilometer-wide-rim.


II. B. Read the text below and then answer the following questions.

One message flashes on the screen in hot pursuit of another. Your fingers are always busy: you squeeze the keys, calling new numbers to answer the calls or composing messages of your own. You stay connected - even though you are constantly on the move, and though the invisible senders and recipients of calls and messages move as well, all following their own trajectories. Mobiles are for people on the move.
You never leave your mobile out of sight. Your jogging gear has a special pocket for your mobile, and you would not go out with that pocket empty just as you would not go running without your training shoes. As a matter of fact, you would go nowhere without your mobile ("nowhere" is, indeed, the space with a mobile out of range, or a mobile with a flat battery). And, once with your mobile, you are never out or away. You are always in - but never locked up in one place. Protected in a web of calls and messages, you are invulnerable. (Zygmunt Bauman, Liquid Love, 2003)

Tasks
1. State in no more than 15 words what is the main topic of this passage from Bauman's text.
2. Discuss the relationship between "stay connected" and "on the move".
3. What is the metaphorical meaning of "nowhere" in Bauman's text?
4. What kind of protection is offered by calls and messages?
