Do Year 5 Test 7

Level A1/A1+

Year 5 Test 7 is for the students of the fifth grade to check themselves and develop their reading and writing skills.

Task 1. Read the text and say whether the statements are true or false. 

Richard Smith

Richard Smith was a farmer and a school teacher. But when he was 60 he decided to write books for children. Now, he is 67 years old. Every day he goes into his study and writes. In the evening he asks his wife to read his works. She tells him what she likes and what she doesn’t like. Richard says: “I have seven grandchildren. They don’t live with us, they all live in the city, but they also read my stories and say if they are good or bad”. So Richard knows what young children like to read.

He likes to write about animals especially dogs, because they are very clever and learn quickly. His favourite book is “The Sheepdog”. It is about a farmer and the dog that helps him. Last year this book was made into a film. Richard was very pleased with the film. “Sometimes filmmakers change books, but they didn’t change mine and I love the film”.
