English test examination of BEM 2008

Text

   Nobody could believe it, but it happened! The Titanic was the largest ship ever built, sank a few hours after hitting an iceberg.

   The tragedy happened in 1912, on its first trip across the Atlantic Ocean. The Titanic was travelling from Southampton to New York with 2201 people on board. Only 711 of them could be saved by the Carpathian a ship which was sailing some miles away, while 1940 people lost their lives in the accident.

   Too many people died because there were enough lifeboats for all them and the crew was not prepared for such a catastrophe, they thought that the ship was safe in any difficult condition and could not sink. And also many passengers were sleeping and were not dressed warmly enough to survive in the very cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean

   New safety measures were taken after this accident and now ships carry enough lifeboats, life vast and survival kits for all the people on board and the crew is well trained for emergency situations.

Today the means of transport has changed considerably. The man, to travel and go the longest has an embarrassment of riches. Outside the car, bus, plane and boat are the means of transport most used for travel logs. For my part, I prefer the aircraft and boat
Why?

For the aircraft, first of all, despite the chereté ticket, especially for international lines, it is the means of transport faster and more comfortable. And contrary to what some people think, the aircraft is the way to trabsport the safest, according to statistics of accidents in the world of transport, then travel by air, gives us a feeling of freedom and dominate the landscape , To admire the earth and its reliefs.

On the boat, it is also an interesting way to travel for several reasons. First, it is a means of transport cheap, secondly, travelling by boat can travel in contact with many people, to discover the other, to move, but especially to pass through the islands,  (in the case of a cruise)
