The Body shop

When I opened the first 'Body shop' in 1976 my only object was to earn enough to feed my children. Today ' The Body Shop' is an international company rapidly growing all around the world. In the years since we began I have learned a lot. Much of what I have learned will be found in this book, I believe that we, as a company, have something worth saying about how to run a successful business without giving up what we really believe in. It's not a normal business book, it is just about my life. The message is that to succeed in business you have to be different. Business can be fun, business can be run with love and it can do well. In business, as in life, I need to enjoy myself, to have a feeling of family and to feel excited by the unexpected. I have always wanted the people who work for ''The Body Shop'' to feel the same way.

Grade 11. Control work 2


Read through the text and choose ONE answer for each question.

Pet Doctor

There’s an old saying in the theatre world “Never work with children or animals”. It’s a pity that Heijman Gross has never heard this piece of advice, or if he has, that he didn’t pay attention to it. It’s not so much that Pet Doctor is a bad film, although I can’t really find many reasons for saying it’s a good one. It’s more that it makes me angry. Gross is a good actor. His appearance on the New York stage last winter in Shakespeare’s ’Romeo and Juliet’ showed that he really can act. So what’s he doing in this nonsense? It’s a story about a small town doctor who finds he’s making more money by looking after the local children’s pets than by looking after humans. Then he gets into trouble with the police, because he doesn’t have the right sort of licence to do this and, surprise, the children and their pets find a way to solve his problems. I won’t say how, as it’s the only part of the film that’s even slightly original or amusing. If you have to see it, you’d be annoyed with me for telling you. But my advice is, when it comes to a cinema near you stay in and shampoo the cat.


1. What is the writer trying to do in the text?

a) Compare Herman Gross with another actor.

b) Give his or her opinion about using animals in films

c) Give his or her opinion about Pet Doctor.
2. The text gives the reader ...

a) information about a new film.

b) ideas about how animals should be cared for.

c) news about the lives of film stars.
3. The writer thinks that Pet Doctor is ...

a) amusing.

b) original.

c) not worth seeing.
4. Why did the writer mention Romeo and Juliet?

a) It’s an example of a really good play.

b) Gross proved he’s a good actor in it.

c) The central characters are very young.

5. Which one of these TV guides is describing Pet Doctor?

a) A doctor is loved by the children whose pets he cures. But everything goes wrong and he is sent to prison.

b) A doctor finds he can cure local animals, then discovers this isn’t allowed. But it all finishes happily.

c) A doctor prefers animals to humans and stops looking after his patients. People are dying, the animals are cured, then the police arrive ...

Common Scams

Targeted At Teens

The inexperienced and trusting nature of young people is often what causes them to fall victim to scam artists. Some scam artists know how to identify and take advantage of teens and their need to fit in. Also, because teens are often so involved in new technology and web-based interactions, it's no surprise that many scammers have found the Internet to be the optimal environment for preying on teens.

Have you ever seen ads online for cheap iPhones, electronic gadgets, designer clothes and other luxury goods being sold at just a fraction of the retail price? Many of these advertisements are simply scams aimed at unsuspecting youngsters who are looking for a good deal. However, in many cases, these cheap goods don't even exist. After these teens hand over their money to the scam artist, they never receive the promised merchandise. Sadly, these teens are often so embarrassed about being duped that they won't tell their parents or the authorities.

Some young people may be naïve to a point where they don't even realise that they could be victims of identity theft. Many of these scams operate online, making use of emails or pop-up windows that ask for verification of account information, credit card information or any other kind of personal data, which teens hand over without further thought.

Many teens want also to personalize their gadgetry with new ringtones and wallpaper images. Some companies target teens for these "free" services that send new ringtones and images on a regular basis. However, what they don't advertise is that this service comes with a hefty fee that'll be added to the phone bill each month. So, it’s important to know that if anything looks too good to be true, then probably it is.

In the end, parents should make their children aware of any potential scams, even if they need to repeat themselves because it's always better to be safe than sorry.

a. Teens are best deceived online.


b. So-called “free of charge services” often turn out to be very expensive.

d. Being cautious is always better than regretting something later.
