Школьный тур олимпиады по английскому языку 10-11 классы


1. READING
Read the following passage.
 For Questions 1-7, choose the answer (A, B, C or D ) which  you think fits best according to the text.

Many folk cures  which have been around for centuries may be more therapeutic than previously suspected. A case in point is that of penicillin. Alexander Fleming did not just randomly choose cheese molds to study when he discovered this very important bacteria-killing substance. Moldy cheese was frequently given to patients as a remedy for illness at one time. Fleming just isolated what was about the cheese which cured the patients.
In parts of South America, a powder obtained from grinding sugar cane is used for healing infections in wounds and ulcers. This usage may date back to  pre-Colombian times. Experiments carried out on several hundred patients indicate that ordinary sugar in high concentrations is lethal to bacteria. Its suction effect eliminates dead cells, and it generates a glasslike layer which protects the wound and ensures healing.
Another example of folk medicine which scientists are investigating is that of Arab fishermen who rub their wounds with a venomous catfish to quicken healing. This catfish excretes a gellike slime which scientists have found to contain  antibiotics, a coagulant that helps close injured blood vessels, anti-inflammatory agents, and a chemical that directs production of a gluelike material that aids healing.
It is hoped that by documenting these folk remedies and experimenting to see if results are indeed beneficial, an analysis of the substances can be made, and synthetic substances can be developed for human consumption.

Школьный тур олимпиады по английскому языку 9 класс


1. READING
 Read the following passage. For Questions 1-7, choose the answer (A, B, C or D )which  you think fits best according to the text.
Napoleon Bonaparte’s ambition to control all the area around the Mediterranean Sea led him and his French soldiers to Egypt. After losing a naval battle, they were forced to remain there for three years. In 1799, while constructing a fort, a soldier discovered a piece of stele (stone pillar bearing an inscription) known as the Rosetta stone. This famous stone, which would eventually lead to the deciphering of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics dating to 3100 B.C., was written in three languages: hieroglyphics (picture writing), demotic (a shorthand version of hieroglyphics), and Greek. Scientists discovered that the characters, unlike those in English, could be written from right to left and in other directions as well.
Twenty-three years after discovery of the Rosetta stone, Jean Francois Champollion, a French philologist, fluent in several  languages, was able to decipher the first word – Ptolemy – name of an Egyptian ruler. This name was written inside an oval called a “cartouche”. Further investigation revealed that cartouches contained names of important people of that period. Champollion painstakingly continued his search and was able to increase his growing list of known phonetic signs. He and an Englishman, Thomas Young, worked independently of each other to unravel the deeply hidden mysteries of this strange language. Young believed that sound values could be assigned to the symbols, while Champollion insisted that the pictures represented words.

Школьный тур олимпиады по английскому языку 8 класс

1. READING
Read the following passage. For Questions 1-5, choose the answer (A, B, C or D) which  you think fits best according to the text.
A recent investigation by scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey shows that strange animal behavior might help predict future earthquakes. Investigators found such occurrences in a ten-kilometer radius of the epicenter of a fairly recent earthquake. Some birds screeched and flew about widely; dogs yelped and ran around uncontrollably.
Scientists believe that animals can perceive these environmental changes as early as several days before the mishap.
In 1976 after observing animal behavior, the Chinese were able to predict a devastating earthquake. Although hundreds of thousands of people were killed, the government was able to evacuate millions of other people and thus keep the death toll at a lower level.

Philip Rogers started teaching in 1992 and came to our school in 1994. He was born in 1960 in England and doesn’t remember much of the 1960s. He wasn’t interested in football then and didn’t see England win the World Cup in 1966. The first big news story that he remembers is when the Americans landed on the moon in 1969.

День Учителя-2012

В1: Добрый день, дорогие наши педагоги!

В2:  Сегодня во всем мире отмечают замечательный праздник – День учителя! День учителя - это и наш праздник, наших родителей, бабушек и дедушек, всех людей, ведь и они тоже учились когда-то в школе.

В1:   Справедливо было замечено, что писатель живет в своих произведениях,  скульптор - в созданных им скульптурах, художник – в картинах. А хороший учитель - в мыслях и поступках своих учеников. Каждый выпускник вспоминает свою родную школу и мудрых наставников – учителей - с чувством благодарности.
