                                             Reading Comprehension
Read the following passage then answer the questions below:

       Nearly all of us have always dreamt about winning the big prize in the National

  Lottery or in a game programme on TV. We dream about what we would do with the

  money, but rarely stop to think about what the money would do to us! For most of us, our way of life is
closely linked to our economic circumstances. The different parts

of our lives fit together like a jigsaw: work, home, friends, hobbies and etc. This is

where we belong and how we live. A sudden huge windfall of money would dramatically change it all and
break the jigsaw. For example, most people like the idea of not having to work. But winners have found that
without work, there would be no purpose to their day, and no reason to get up in the morning. It is tempting
to move to

a bigger house in a wealthy neighbourhood but in so doing, leave old friends and routines behind. Winners
are usually advised not to publicize their addresses and

phone numbers, but charity requests and begging letters still arrive. If they are not careful, most of their
money will be lost away on lawyers‟ fees to protect them from dreaming relatives, guards to protect their
homes and swimming pools, and psychotherapists to protect their minds!

                   Read the following passage, then work out the following question:


         School libraries are important to the teaching and learning activities of school. Teachers
need resources that will help them improve classroom instructions. Students must be able to find
materials that will answer questions on homework or in research projects. School librarians are
sometimes called media specialists.
They select materials for the library and help students and teachers effectively use its resources. For
example, a school librarian might guide a student to books useful for a particular assignment. In
addition, the librarian might teach the student how to use an online public access catalog of
available materials. School librarians also help young people find enjoyable books to read in their
free time. School librarians should have specialized training in librarianship. They should also have
teaching skills, because school librarians work closely with educators.


In four ( 4 . sentences of your own, show how important libraries are to teachers and to
students.
