    Today's exercise is the same passage we saw yesterday, but the questions are different.

    Read the following passage from a newspaper article about "green tourism".

    A) Interested in making your holiday greener and more sustainable, ensuring that local people get a fair cut of the money you've handed over, and that no rivers are being dried up or forests felled to accommodate your trip? Congratulations – for being in a well-meaning minority.

    B) A recent survey by the travel trade body, Abta, found that just 20 per cent of travel agents have ever been asked for such holidays or asked questions about sustainability, though they did report a "feeling" that interest in sustainability was growing. Despite apocalyptic warnings about climate change, water scarcity, pollution, and peak oil, there isn't exactly a stampede to the travel industry's door demanding it play its part.

    C) "The industry feels there isn't a huge demand out there," says Sue Hurdle, chief executive of the independent charity The Travel Foundation. "They don't have a lot of people banging on the door asking for greener holidays."

    D) Others are more specific, such as Professor Harold Goodwin, of the International Centre for Responsible Tourism (ICRT), an independent academic research centre. "There is a big shift in values and approach – it's not just travel, it's a general consumer trend," he says. "If you're worried about where your pork comes from at home, why wouldn't you worry about that when on holiday?"
    其他的更具体,如责任旅游国际中心(ICRT) -- 一个独立的学术研究中心的哈罗德教授古德温。”在价值和方法上有一个大的转变,这不仅是旅游,这是一个普遍的消费趋势,“他说。”如果你担心你家里的猪肉是从哪里来的,那你在旅游的时候为什么不担心那些?

    E) For those of us who are bothered, working out when the travel industry is doing its bit, and when it isn't, and separating good operators from charlatans peddling greenwash, is a bewildering and frustrating experience. England alone usually has around 20 certification schemes or logos on the go at any one time, split into two categories: awards, where hotels and operators are judged independently; and certification schemes, where they generally pay to be included. It also helps to know what the industry is aiming for. We're not talking about genuine eco-tourism – which remains a niche and narrow market – but on what the industry prefers to call "sustainable", or "responsible" tourism.

    F) "Many people make the mistake of thinking that when anyone describes a business or activity as being 'green' that they are environmentally friendly," says Jason Freezer, destinations manager for Visit England. "Being green, sustainable, or responsible is about ensuring economic viability, social inclusion and contributing to the natural environment. A sustainable business is doing its most to enhance its own success financially, while contributing to the local economy and
minimising or negating the damage it might do to its environment or community."

    Answer the following questions TRUE, FALSE or NOT GIVEN.

    1) Travel agents report that few people express an interest in sustainability.

    2) In England, certification schemes make it easy for consumers to judge whether or not hotels and operators are "green".

    3) Sustainable businesses are more successful financially than businesses that are not environmentally friendly.


    问:How to improve Listening and Reading, especialy Reading. Because I took ielts two times and nothing changed. I got same score 5 and 5.5. I need your advice.

    答:You just need to keep practising. Follow the lessons on this site, and do the practice tests in the Cambridge IELTS books. Also, do lots of general listening and reading (TV, books, newspapers etc). Be patient, work hard, and you will gradually improve.
    问:I still have problems with true ,false and not given. I find it difficult to guess if the statement if false or not given. How to find out the difference between the two? Is there any trick which I can use?

    答:The answer is 'false' when you can show that an alternative answer is true. The answer is 'not given' when there is no information, so can't possibly know the answer.

    问:When I look at the real exam I found it that real exam is more difficult than Cambridge test book , you could easily see that official IELTS test reading takes more time to answer in compare with Cambridge reading .Despite the fact that I can read fast but I still week in reading .

    答:The Cambridge books contain real tests papers that were used in the past. Some are more difficult than others, but they are real papers.

    Note: The number of points needed for each band changes slightly depending on the difficulty of the exam paper. So, if you get a really difficult exam, the number of points you need for a band 7 might be lower.
    问:Can I learn which sentence means "The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the result of a human error."

    I never understood it.if you look at people answer ,they are and mine are totaly different.I believe there is a logicakl mistake.

    答:There is no information in the article about "the result of a human error" - that's why the answer is Not Given.
    问:I was just a little confused with question 1. How does "20% of travel agent" translate to "few peole" - I understand this being few travel agents were being asked about this question, but the passage does not exactly say that few people asked this question. Would be great if you could explain a little bit more. Thank you so much!
    我只是有点困惑问题1。 “20%旅行社”如何转变为“少数人”,我理解这是一些旅行社被问到这个问题,但这段没有确切说很少有人问这个问题。如果你能多解释一点的话,这就太棒了。非常感谢你!

    答:I think the writer of the article was surprised that only 20% of travel agents had been asked about how "green" their holidays were. "Few" is relative to how many you expect, and the writer obviously expected more people to be worried about green issues.
