OPTIONAL READING                              Read the text and answer the questions that follow.



                                                                                    CURING AN OBSESSION
 I      Welcome to the Jump Up Internet Rescue School, the first institution of its kind in South Korea and perhaps in the world.
        Students don’t study computers and science at Jump Up. They come to fight an addiction, but not to drugs or alcohol.
        They are suffering from an addiction to cyberspace.
 II     Actually a camp, the school offers a 12-day programme for obsessed teenagers who cannot tear themselves away from the
        computer. At the Jump Up Internet Rescue School, participants are denied computer access and may only use their mobile
        phones for one hour each day, in order to prevent them from playing online games by phone. The school’s curriculum
        includes military-style physical exercise, psychological counselling, therapeutic group sessions and group activities aimed
        at helping students build connections to the real world and let go of the virtual one.
III     Although obsessive computer use has become a problem in many countries, it is particularly troubling in South Korea,
        where 90% of all homes are connected to the Internet. In the past few years, there have been cases of computer users who
        died of exhaustion after playing online games for days without stopping. Up to 30% of South Koreans under the age of 18
        – about 2.4 million people – are at risk. Of these, about a quarter of a million show signs of actual addiction. They are
        unable to stop themselves from using computers, and when they are prevented from logging on, they experience
        withdrawal symptoms – an uncontrollable desire to get back to the computer and intense anger and craving when they
        can’t.
IV      To combat this problem, the South Korean government has built 140 Internet-addiction counselling centres, in addition to
        treatment programmes in hospitals. The Internet Rescue School, which is entirely financed by the South Korean
        government and was created to treat the most severe cases of computer addiction, opened its doors in the summer of 2007.
        It is still too early to know whether or not the programme will succeed in helping cure youths of their addiction to the
        Internet, but the school has been receiving five applications for each available place.
