А. Between December 2003 and December 2005, total TV reach declined but the biggest
fall was among young people it fell by 2.9% for 16 24 year-olds. During 2005, reach
declined by 2.2% in that age group. Reach is defined as at least 15 minutes of
consecutive TV viewing in a week. Industry figures say the decline could be due to the
growth of the internet. DVDs and gaming could also be factors, they said.
В. Digital Spy is a showbiz, entertainment and digital media community. It is the UK’s
largest independent entertainment website generating over 90 million monthly page
impressions. Digital Spy is also renowned for its extensive and unique coverage of Big
Brother each year. The discussion forums have more than 290,000 registered users and
28.3 million posts.
С. Young people (818) devote an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes to using entertainment
media across a typical day (more than 53 hours a week), increasing by one hour and
seventeen minutes a day over the past five years, according to a new study, Generation
M2: Media in the Lives of 8- to 18-Year-Olds, designed and analyzed by the Kaiser
Family Foundation and Stanford University researchers.
The increase in media use is driven in large part by ready access to mobile devices like
cell phones and iPods. Young people now spend more time listening to music, playing
games, and watching TV on their cell phones (a total of 49 min. daily) than they spend
talking on them (33 min.).
D. When I plan my parties, I spend time thinking about the menu, the music, the table
settings, centerpieces and all the other little details that go into making a wonderful event.
But the first thing I really focus on is my guests. After all, that’s the real reason for all the
rest. They are usually my friends and I try to do my best to adjust my party to each of our
E. He writes a blog, downloads Korean television shows, manages two Web sites devoted to
music and plays an online game called Rongguang Hospital, at Baidu.com. “I started
doing a lot of this when I was about 11 years old,” says Mr. Li, a freshman at the
Shanghai Maritime University. “Now, I spend most of my leisure time on the Internet,”
he says. “There’s nowhere else to go.”
F. Additionally, anyone under 18 and out of childhood has severely limited options when it
comes to entertainment. Just about everybody has experienced the frustration of being
under 18 and having nowhere to go apart from the movies or the zoo. Most young people

are interested in popular music, but beyond their TV and radio, there’s very little offered
to them. Essentially, any licensed premises are out of bounds which creates an enormous
void in popular music options.
G. This survey was done in March 2010 (Term 1), and so it is not surprising that summer
Hollywood blockbusters featured in the films listed by students as the most enjoyable
film they’d watched recently. The top 5 films were Alice in Wonderland, Avatar, Shutter
Island, Valentine’s Day and The Hangover. It is interesting to note that 3 of the top 5
films have unrestricted ratings.
In most ways, Sarah McCarthy is your average high schooler. She has a job, college plans, but
also a peculiar passion for a 16-year-old: She’s a vinyl junkie. And none of that hipster new
stuff. To this senior high school student, there’s nothing like the raw crackle, the depth of sound,
her delicate hand on diamond-tipped stylus to spin from the dusty stash of records she found in
the basement of her grandfather.
He gave me his receiver and speaker system and told me to listen to it the way it was made to
be listened to,” McCarthy said. “I’ve turned a lot of my friends on to it. They come over a lot to
listen with me.”
At a time when parents feel positively prehistoric as they explain how to use plastic ice-cube
trays or speak of phones with cords and dials, this teen knows what a record is. Not only that, she
knows the difference between a 45 and an LP. She met her boyfriend in a record shop and now
works there.
Listening to old music remastered to a newer format is almost comical,” Sarah said. “They
weren’t meant to be digitalised. Listening to Jimi Hendrix on my iPod doesn’t capture his
endlessly deep guitar solos quite like a 33 LP of ‘Blues’ does.
This girl’s in love with vinyl, and she’s not the only member of Generation Digital with an ear
for records.

Задание С1
Hello, Roy.
I am glad to receive a letter from you. As for hostels you are writing about, I think, it is a good
way for young people to travel. You are able to save money, meet new friends and spend the best
time of your life. If you come up with an idea to go somewhere, you may pack your bag and
move on.
I do have friends in other countries. When I travel around Europe visiting them or sightseeing I
prefer to stay not in a fashionable hotel, but in a hostel just like you and some of my friends. It
looks like a student dormitory where several people live all together in one room.
See you soon,
