Érettségis szövegértéses feladat angolból - középszint



Read the following text about Tom, 13, one of Britain's best young surfers. Your task is to decide if the information in the sentences after the text are true (T), false (F) or we do not know (DK) because the text does not say. Write the correct letter in the white box after the sentence. There is one example (0) for you.

Tom's just won the Under 15 Quicksilver Grommit series - and here he reports on how he did it.

"I've been surfing for over three years now. I got into it through my family. My two brothers, dad and mum all love going down to the beach. I started entering competitions about a year ago. I watched a couple of contests I wasn't in, saw the standard, and thought I'd give it a go. I won third place in my first competition!

I surf pretty much every day, including winter. But when it's really cold I wear a wet suit, hat, gloves and boots. Luckily Newquay's not the coldest place to surf - in Scotland you have to dress like that in the summer too!

You don't always need big waves to surf. You have to learn how to surf in different conditions. The waves in this contest weren't that good, and that makes it a lot harder. I'd like to make surfing a career, I think, as long as it doesn't get in the way of my school work.

If you want to get into surfing the best thing to do is go down to the beach and get to a surf school. Once you've got all the gear it's free to practice, but it's a bit expensive to start off with.

One thing I don't like is that sometimes there's pollution in the sea - it can make you ill and you have to stay out of the water for a couple of weeks.

But during the summer holidays I'll probably be surfing all day.

Then I'm off to France to enter a contest down there. It'll be the first time I've surfed abroad and I'm really looking forward to it."
