VI)-Read the passage carefully, and then answer the question below.
Easy English
	English is an important global language, but that doesn’t mean it is easy to learn. Many experts have tried to make English easier to learn, but they weren’t always successful.
	In 1930, Professor CK Ogden of Cambridge University invented Basic English. It had only 850 words (and just eighteen verbs) and Ogden said most people could learn it in just thirty hours. The problem was that people who learned Basic English could write and say simple messages, but they couldn’t understand the answers in ‘real’ English! It was also impossible to explain a word if it wasn’t in the Basic English word list.
	RE Zachrisson, a university professor in Sweden, decided that the biggest problem for learners of English was spelling, so he invented a language called Anglic. Anglic was similar to English, but with much simpler spelling. ‘Father’ became ‘faadher’, ‘new’ became ‘nue’ and ‘years’ became ‘yeerz’. Unfortunately, for some students of English, Anglic never become popular.
	Even easier is the language which ships’ captains use: it is called ‘Seaspeak’. Seaspeak uses a few simple phrases for every possible situation. In Seaspeak, for example, you don’t say, ‘I didn’t understand, can you repeat that?’ it is just, “Say again.” No more grammar!
	In the age of international communication through the Internet, a new form of English might appear. A large number of the world’s e-mail are in English and include examples of ‘NetLingo’ like OIC (Oh, I see) and TTYL (Talk to you later).
What is the role of English?
When did Professor Ogden invent Basic English? How many words did it have?
Why did Professor Zachrisson invent Anglic? What happened to it?
What is the feature of Seaspeak?
What has appeared in the age of international communication through the Internet?

	In 1840, they agreed to become a British colony, and they learned European ways quickly. Today there are Maori in all kinds of jobs. They attend schools and universities and become lawyers and scientists. There are Maori in the government. Most of them live like the white New Zealanders.
	However, the Maori do not forget their traditions. Children learn the language, music, and old stories. They have yearly competitions in speaking, dancing, and singing. The Maori live a comfortable, modern life, but they keep their traditions by passing them to their children.

The Sydney Opera House
	The Sydney Opera House is built on Bennelong Point, in Sydney Harbour, close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The first known concert on Bennelong Point was held in March 1791. Public pressure to build a suitable concert facility in Sydney became greater in the 1940s. In 1955, the New South Wales government announced an international competition for the design of “an opera house”. Danish architect Jørn Utzon’s entry was selected as the winning design. His design was for a complex with two theatres side by side on a large podium. This was covered by interlocking concrete shells, which acted as both wall and roof. A third smaller shell set apart from the others was to cover the restaurant.
	The construction of the Opera House was sometimes difficult and controversial with Jorn Utzon resigning from the project in 1966. However, the Opera House was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 20 October 1973. The Sydney Opera House became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.

	You are sure to enjoy the beauty of the Scottish varied landscape: the hills covered with purple heather, its beautiful lakes (here they are called lochs), its green and narrow valleys.
	The biggest and the most beautiful lake in Scotland is Loch Lomond, but the most famous one is Loch Ness with its mysterious monster Nessie. Nessie sometimes appears to scare the tourist but only in fine weather!

There are about 300 different clans in Scotland, and each has its own colour and pattern of tartan together with the motto.
