Task 1

Make one text putting the paragraphs A E into the correct order from 11 15 in
your answer sheet.

Robbies first business

A.One day, grandmother told him her secret way of making jam. Robbie made too much for the family to eat so he took it to other people in his street. He made moreand more jam. It tasted so good that his parents friends started buying it from him. Robbie added all his costs together then decided on a price.


B.Robbie enjoyed art most at school. He liked Maths and Music too, but because it was hard for Robbie to spell words correctly or to understand texts, he didnt enjoy
being at school. In English, he had lots of problems.


C.Then he made a business plan on the computer with help from his dad. Now people can buy his jam at a weekly market. It tastes wonderful and its healthy because Robbie uses grape juice, not sugar, to make it.

D.Im still only 14 but Im already a businessman! Robbie laughs. Last week I earned 93 euro because 87 different people bought 58 kilos of my jam, and a
supermarket wants to sell it too. My career is in jam-making, I think!


E.So, when Robbie was 12, his parents decided he should leave school and study at home. There, he learnt about business and working on computers, and spent more
time happily studying art, exercising and practicing on his violin. Robbies
grandmother started teaching him to cook too. Like his mother and aunt he really
enjoyed doing it.

I had a great time on my adventure trip to Canada. I went with two teachers and all my classmates. I missed my family at first but by the end of the holiday, I didnt want to go home!

On my favourite day, we went on a long walk in the mountains. We had to carry all our things in bags on our backs, which was hard work, but we never got bored because we all chatted the whole time. We had a rock climbing lesson just before our picnic lunch and later that afternoon we arrived at a lake where we camped for the night. Three of my classmates tried to fish, without success! I helped build the fire. The teachers and two of the older students made supper, then we sat in our blankets around the fire and sang songs and made wishes in the dark.

We decided not to sleep inside the tents, but outdoors because we wanted to look at the stars. Some of the boys made bear noises trying to make us afraid, but we were still laughing at midnight because we were having so much fun. Ill never forget that day.
