Bu gibi durumlarda öğrencilere onları kalabalık gruplarla yapılan derslerde ortaya çıkan bir takım sorunlardan uzak tutmak adına özel bir bu öğrencilerin isteklerinin, hedeflerini ve amaçlarının birinci plana alındığı ve bunları gerçekleştirebilecek tüm çağdaş bilgi ve tekniklerle donanmış içeriği sadece öğrenci odaklı ve yüksek bir skor alabilmeleri için gerekli bilgilerle donanmış grup programı hazırlanarak uygulanır. İşte bu , aynı üniversiteye devam eden 4 öğrenciden oluşturulan gruplar içinde  dersler mevcuttur. Bu grupların 4 kişiden oluşturulması tamamen bilimsel araştırmalar sonucunda bulunmuş bulgulara dayanır. Zira, grup şeklinde yapılan  derslerde en iyi sonuçların 4 ve 4 kişiyi geçmeyen gruplarda elde edildiği kanıtlanmıştır.

Mevcut  olarak az öğrenci bulunan bu gruplarda öğrenci, istediği anda anlamadığı bir konu hakkında soru sorabilir bu imkan her zaman öğrenci için mevcuttur. Diğer yandan da, eğitmen öğrenci sayısının az olmasından yararlanarak onlarla hem daha yakın iletişim kurabilir hemde çok daha iyi ilgilenebilir.

Gruplar için sağlanmış bu olumlu faktörlerin tümünün bir araya gelmesi ile ortaya iyi eğitim verilmiş ve sınavda başarılı olabilme ihtimalleri yüksek öğrenciler ortaya çıkar

There are several points to remember when buying food. First of all, larger shops sell goods at lower prices

than smaller shops. As most people know, supermarkets often sell

their own brands of many products. ‘Own

brands’ are, on average, cheaper than the brands of leading manufacturers. For example, on items such as peas,

beans, soap and soap powder, own brands can be up to 15 percent cheaper. On some lines, such as washing-up

liquid, the savings can be even greater. There is no reason to suppose that own brand ones are inferior. They are

commonly produced in the same place as the branded

ones. Often the difference is the packaging and the price.

When Lydia Nash appeared on the TV program. Who wants to be a millionaire? And was fortunate

enough to win $16,000, she decided to give all the money away.

This wouldn't have been surprising if she had

been rich or famous, but Lydia is a 19-year-old student.

(2)

Lydia gave all the money to a charity in Thailand which helps orphan children- children without parents.

They

were living in an institution called orphanage. She had also worked there as a volunteer for the previous

three years, asking for no money. 'I first visited the orphanage when I was seventeen, and I felt very depressed

by what I saw. When I got back to England I felt angry- looking around all I could see were people who were

obsessed with money. That convinced me to return to Thailand the following year.

(3)

After she won the money some of her friends at university thought that maybe she had made the wrong

decision. 'Some people said I should have saved it for a deposit to buy a house or to pay back my students loan.'

Lydia said. 'That really annoyed me. Students seem to live in an unreal world, where they always complain

about being poor. But there's an enormous difference between our situation and people who have absolutely no

money.'

With the help of the money Lydia gave them, the charity has just finished building 'Rainbow House', a

new facility that will house 50 young children, where they will live until they are adopted.

For years, it has been assumed that obesity is the result of ‘too much food and too little exercise’. While this

maxim is largely correct, the etiology of obesity can be much more complex. There is a well-documented

familial tendency, but whether this is of environmental or genetic origin is unclear. Studies of twins separated at

birth and living apart provide strong evidence for a substantial genetic influence. Children of overweight

parents, when adopted by lean families, have a greater tendency to become obese than do adoptee from nonobese

natural parents. ‘Energy efficiency’ may contribute to obesity; with reserves of fat deposits readily

available to metabolize in the obese, a given amount of activity requires a smaller expenditure of energy. This

theory has been invoked by those who complain that they ‘gain weight whether they eat or not’, and indeed

there is evidence of differences in energy efficiency among individuals. Similarly, obesity has been attributed to

abnormally low basal metabolic rates (BMRs) since obese individuals do show lower BMRs. However, this fact

is due to an artifact of BMR measurement; a larger proportion of the total fat mass of an obese person is inert,

low-metabolizing fat, a fact that makes BMR calculations lower.

27) The main idea of this passage is __________.

a) to discredit the idea that there is a greater degree of energy efficiency in the obese.

b) that the environmental and the genetic causes of obesity are more or less the same.

c) To establish that the factors behind obesity are highly complex and even contradictory.

d) That obesity is a serious health hazard and that a great deal more research into the treatment of it is

required.

28) What does the word ‘assume’ mean?

a) suppose b)satisfy c) affirm d) promise

29) Find the word in the paragraph which means ‘provide, supply’.

a) gain b) contribute c) metabolize d) require

30) Find the word in the paragraph which means ‘proof, verification’.

a) expenditure b) artifact c) lean d) evidence
