Славное было время — и стрёмное, когда в Иняз (МГЛУ) нужно было сдавать письменные вступительные испытания. Там задания были на все виды речевой деятельности (проверяли по полной, так сказать) — аудирование, грамматику, чтение и говорение. Образцы вступительных тестов прошлых лет в МГЛУ можно было видеть в книгах Е.Б.Карневской, И.И.Пановой, Е.А.Мисуно (Тесты по грамматике, аудированию и чтению; Тесты по грамматике, типичные ошибки). Но вот в мой 2006 год, когда я поступал на базе средней школы, впервые ввели в Инязе ЦТ как показатель знания по английскому языку. Отчасти, мне это упрощало жизнь: говорить бегло тогда я не умел, да и аудирование расслышать не дай Бог с задней парты — было бы сравни катастрофе. Поэтому тест ЦТ был ОК. Однако ещё в марте или апреле, когда был день открытых дверей, в ларёчке самого МГЛУ продавали за 2500 руб. образец вступительного теста 2005 г. Приобрёл его, почитал, пожалел, что потратил столько (!) денег на обычную распечатку брошюрного типа. А теперь решил поделиться образцом вступительного экзамена по английскому в Минский государственный лингвистический университет. Ответы не составлял, да их в брошюре и не было — настолько наборщики, видимо, поленились его напечатать (тоже повод был для негодования за бесполезно потраченные деньги; для сравнения: проезд в автобусе стоил 200 руб.). В общем, удачи всем, кому интересно. Отмечу, что в 2006 году на переводческое отделение Иняза набрали 8 олимпиадников и 17 льготников, что и составило все 25 человек-бюджетников. И рядовым абитуриентам вроде меня пришлось перебрасывать документы в другое место. Я со своими 363 баллами ушёл в БГУ.

Mr. Jones wrote to his brother Robert: «Would you like to go to the country with us on Sunday? We have a good cook and I think you’ll have a good time and good food. I’ll meet you at the bus».
Robert was a shy man. He did not like to cause trouble but he came.
The bus arrived at seven o’clock on Saturday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Jones had had supper but Robert had not even had time for lunch, but he was too shy to say so.
«I had a good supper before I took the bus», he said. «I’m not hungry at all». He was so tired from the bus ride that he slept late on Sunday morning.
«Don’t forget to give Robert a good breakfast». Mrs. Jones said to the cook. But the cook forgot and Robert was too shy to ask her.
At 9 o’clock they drove to the country house and arrived there at 1 o’clock.
«We are not going to eat until 4 o’clock because we had such a large breakfast», Mr. Jones told Robert. «Would you like to go swimming?»
«No, I don’t think so», Robert said. «In fact, I don’t feel very well. I haven’t felt well for several hours».
«Perhaps you’d better see a doctor», Mr. Jones said. «I insist that you should see one.» The doctor couldn’t discover the trouble. «The symptoms you have are sometimes the result of the wrong food», the doctor said. «You’d better not eat much supper». Robert was too weak to protest. The cook gave him some thin soup for supper.
He said good-bye to his brother at 8 o’clock, and immediately ate two meals, one after the other, in a restaurant. While he ate, he wrote a note to thank his brother for the good time.
«I had fun», he wrote while he ate a second dessert. «You are lucky to have such a good cook I shall never forget her meals».

This wasn’t true. It was all a dream. First there had been the telephone call from the hospital telling her about the accident. Later she had seen the worried faces looking at her and she could see them thinking «poor little orphan». Now she was going to a strange place, to live with her aunt in London. Bonnie sat on the aeroplane, looking through the window. She was wearing a T-shirt and jeans and was holding some photos in her hand. Bonnie was not very tall for her age but she was pretty, with long blonde hair and said, grey eyes. The tiny houses, factories and roads were getting bigger and bigger. In a few minutes she would be in Britain. She couldn’t remember much about it, because she hadn’t visited Britain since she was three. Bonnie’s family had gone to live in California before she was born and everything had been fantastic until the accident happened.
«You look tired, dear. Come on, let’s go home». Her aunt put her arm round Bonnie and they went to get the car. Bonnie’s aunt Susan was a large, comfortable woman with blonde hair just like hers and a round, happy face. They drove through the empty streets of London on a Sunday morning and stopped outside a pretty little house near the river. The family was waiting, Uncle David and the two young children, Fred, a noisy six-year old and Rosie, still a baby. Bonnie slept until two in the afternoon and went downstairs.
«Let’s go out and we’ll take you to have a look at London». Her uncle smiled at her through his thick glasses.
That night Bonnie went to bed early. She wrote a few things in her diary and then looked out of the window at the dark and the rain. Suddenly she felt lost and frightened. She started to cry. She wanted to go back to her family, but she couldn’t.

This story appeared in a British newspaper.
For almost two months Dominic York, a 23-year-old hairdresser, wandered about hospitals at night, wearing a white coat and pretending he was a doctor. Yesterday he proudly claimed in court that despite his complete lack of medical experience or qualifications, he had saved several people’s lives. He had even been allowed to assist a surgeon during an emergency operation on a patient who was choking to death on something she had swallowed.
«I watched one day one of those TV dramas about hospital and suddenly I felt like playing one of the roles myself. So I put on a white jacket and a stethoscope and walked around one of the biggest hospitals in London. At first I just watched. Once you learn how doctors talk to patients, nurses and other doctors, it’s easy to take people in,» he said.
One of the patients he treated was Laura Kennan. She had almost been run over by a car and passed out. When she came to in hospital, York was standing over her.
«He looked very professional. He told me his name was Doctor Simon. Then he gave me some sort of injection,» she said. Although he left a very nasty bruise on her arm, and then suddenly cleared off when a nurse asked who he was, she didn’t think there was anything wrong. «I would never have realized he was a fake if a policewoman hadn’t showed me his photograph a week later. When the policewoman told me who he really was, I could hardly believe my eyes.»
Judge Raymond Adams told York that he was «shocked and horrified» that he got away with his deception for so long, and then sentenced him to eighteen months in a special prison for criminals with mental disorders.
«I can only hope that this will not lead to further problems. After all, you will have considerable opportunity to study the behaviour of the psychiatrists who will look after you while you are there. If you try to persuade people that you yourself are a psychiatrist after your release, I shall make sure that you are given a much longer sentence,» Judge Adams warned York.
Dominic York said he didn’t want to cause other people suffering. Would he like to pretend to be a psychiatrist after his release? Or would he like to train to be a doctor?
