Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 32 to 36.
The human body seems to have been designed for producing language. The mouth is relatively small and can be opened and closed rapidly, and the flexible tongue can be used to shape a wide variety of sounds. The teeth are upright, not slanting outwards like those of apes, and they are roughly even in height. Such characteristics are not needed for eating but are extremely helpful in pronouncing sounds such as f, v and th. The lips have much more intricate muscles than those of other primates, and their flexibility helps with sounds like p, b and w.
Many scholars have studied how the development of language is related to the evolutionary development of the human species. One evolutionary step may have resulted in the development of a vocal tract capable of producing the wide variety of sounds utilized by human language. The assumption of an upright posture moved the head forward and the larynx, or “voice box,” lower. This created a longer cavity above the vocal cords, which acted as a resonator for any sounds produced by the larynx.
Another evolutionary step may have been development of a mechanism for perceiving and distinguishing sounds. However, the ability to hear speech sounds is not a necessary condition for the acquisition and use of language. Humans who are born deaf learn the sign languages that are used around them. Still, all languages, including sign language, require the organizing and combining of sounds or signs in specific constructions.
The human brain has specialized functions in each of its two hemispheres. Those functions which are analytic, such as tool-using and language, are largely confined to the left hemisphere of the brain. It may be that there is an evolutionary connection between the tool-using and language- using abilities of humans, and that both are related to the development of the brain.

Unfortunately, many students overlook the value of taking a year off from their studies. Far from being a year wasted, a gap year between school and university could actually be of benefit to your future, especially if you make the most of it by working and travelling abroad. Not only are you likely to increase your self-confidence by living in another country, you'll add valuable work experience to your CV - a bonus when it comes to job hunting after college.
Planning to take 12 to 15 months off need not be difficult if you do your homework.
Although travelling or working abroad for voluntary organizations may prove expensive if you lack sufficient funds, it is possible to combine your travels with paid work experience.
Since 1962, BUNAC, a non-profit organization, has enabled thousands of full-time students to work in America, Canada and Australia each year. There is a wide range of programmes to choose from and they are designed to be self-financing, so you should be able to earn back your initial expenses and have sufficient money to pay for your post-work travels.
Work America and Work Canada are open to full time students and those who have postponed their entry and have a place at a university for the following year. Those taking part in the programme can take almost any job anywhere for the summer (up to 12 months in Canada). It is even possible to pack fish in Alaska, if that appeals! Most, however, would tend to work in temporary jobs within the tourism industry, mainly in restaurants and hotels.

BUNACAMP Counsellors places both students and non-students at children's summer camps in the USA. Those aged between 19 and 35, with relevant experience of working with groups of children, can spend up to eight weeks teaching sporting, arts and dramatic activities at camp and have time to travel around North America afterwards. For those who would rather work behind the scenes, the KAMP programme places students in kitchen and maintenance positions. Both programmes include return transatlantic flights, free board and lodging and pocket-money.
Work Australia offers 18-25 year olds with more time to spare the opportunity to work and travel
“down under” for up to 12 months. There are several departures from London or Los Angeles throughout August, September and October so it’s an ideal programme for gap-year students or those who have just graduated. You can even link it to one of the North American programmes to get the most out of the experience.
Kathryn Jackson spent a year travelling around Australia. ‘My most enjoyable job in Australia was as a receptionist, cook and cleaner at “Backpack Australia”, a crazy place in Adelaide,’ said Kathryn. ‘I left there with great memories and a bursting address book.’
Over the next month Kathryn travelled around in a station wagon with friends. ‘We went diving at the Great Barrier reef, drove through sugarcane fields and tropical fruit plantations, watched the sunset over Ayers Rock and lived on cheese and jam sandwiches. It was incredible!’ On the importance of her year off, Kathryn said, ‘I feel my trip has taught me a lot- from the importance of tolerance and experiencing new cultures to how to cook. My self-confidence has improved amazingly.’
Taking a year off does require forward planning, so you’ll need to apply this October for next year’s summer programme. BUNAC arranges visas, flights, airport greetings and back-up support for participants, which makes organizing your trip very easy. All you have to do is decide where you want to go!
