51 The advice team Read

51 The advice team Read the text and guess/predict the meaning of the highlighted words. The Advice Team Dear Jo: I was shopping with a friend the other day and when we got home we tried on all our new clothes and I noticed she had a couple of extra things that I hadn’t seen her pay for. When I asked her about them, she got all funny and just said maybe I wasn’t paying attention. This isn’t the first time this has happened, and I know it might sound like I’m jumping to conclusions, but I’m worried that she’s been shoplifting. Should I confront her about it or just hope that she won’t do it again? Name withheld Jo: It does sound like your friend might be shoplifting, but you can’t accuse her, in case you’re mistaken. And she may very well deny it anyway. If I were you, I would make a point of not going on shopping trips with her anytime soon. It’s a good way of letting your friend know how you feel without having a showdown. Instead, if you still want to hang out with her, perhaps suggest drinks or a dinner. A. What do the words mean? Write it down. shoplifting accuse showdown B. Now answer the question about the text. Welk advies krijgt de schrijver van de brief ? a. Om anderen te waarschuwen voor haar vriendin. b. Om eens goed te gaan praten met haar vriendin. c. Om haar vriendin geen enkele aandacht meer te geven. d. Om voorlopig niet te gaan winkelen met haar vriendin. 44 EXAM PREPARATION - SPECIFIC STRATEGIES - BBL

52 Shoes Read the text and guess/predict the meaning of the highlighted words. Flatly refuse the shoes Call me a boring kill-joy medic, but I can’t see the appeal in the latest footwear craze for women heel-less high heels. Harry Potter star Emma Watson, along with the likes of Victoria Beckham, have been spotted sporting the heelless shoes. I say sporting, but there’s absolutely nothing sporting about seeing them wobble down the red carpet as they try to balance on the balls of their feet and not topple backwards. I was at a party last week and saw someone wearing them – she spent most of the evening either holding someone’s arm or leaning against the wall for support. All I could think of was the risk of arthritis in her toes, of spinal problems and bunions. So bring back flats immediately. The Daily Telegraph, 2014 A. Guess/predict the meaning of the highlighted words: balance spinal problems immediately B. Now answer the question: Flatly refuse the shoes’ (titel) Welke reden geeft de schrijver voor dit advies? a. Het staat nogal ordinair bij de meeste vrouwen. b. Je kunt er alleen op lopen als je gespierd bent. c. Ze zijn buitengewoon ongemakkelijk in het gebruik. 53 Watching & listening (w&l) First, watch the video and answer the w&l question below. A.
