         Mr. Tom, the teacher of history, was interested in flying. Healways felt so happy while flying above the clouds in his small private plane. A few months ago, he had an unusual adventure. He took off from an airport runway on a training flight. Suddenly, a strong wind blew and the weather was getting worse as it started raining heavily. Mr. Tom couldn't control the plane which touched the top of a tree.  Both wheels of the plane were knocked off but the plane didn't crash.
         Mr. Tom decided to go back and send a radio message to the airport. He did not know how to land without wheels. An officer in the airport telephoned the airport firemen and told them what to do.
         A fireman saw a long open lorry. It was waiting at the airport to carry some goods. The fireman borrowed it and drove to one end of the airport runway. Then he waited for the plane to come.
         The officer at the airport sent a radio message to Mr. Tom telling him to land on the lorry. Part of the lorry was damaged and the tail of the plane was broken. Fortunately, nobody was killed or injured. The firemen slowed the lorry down and then stopped. Mr. Tom was very grateful. He gladly agreed to pay for the damage to the lorry.

Comprehension(2)
Read this passage and answer the question below:
         Have you ever asked yourself why pupilsgo to school? You may say that they go to learn languages, maths, geography, history and science. That's quite true, but why do they learn all these subjects?
         Parents  send their children to school to prepare them for the time when they will be grown up persons and big enough to work for themselves. Pupils learn foreign languages in order to be able to benefit from what people in other countriesthink of. They learn maths in order to be able to count and measure things in their daily life, geography to know about the world around them and history to know about the past and make use of the others' mistakes. But is that the only reasons why they go to school?
         Now, education is more than just receiving information. We go to school above all to learn how to learn, how to think in different situations, so that when we have left school, we do not stop learning. When you know how to learn, you'll be able to teach yourself how to do things in the best way.

          In his famous will, he left money to provide annual prizes, diplomas, medals and cheques for outstanding works in physics, chemistry, physiology, medicine, literature and peace as a memorial to his interests and ideals, without any consideration for nationality. Many scientists, writers and authors, all over the world, dream of winning Nobel Prize. Will their dreams come true?
