Part 2. Read the text and questions 11-15 below.
For each question, mark the correct letter A,B,C or D.
Last week I visited the village of Portmeirion in north Wales. During my childhood, I’d enjoyed holidays in
the area, which is one of the most beautiful parts of Britain. However, I’d never been to village and I had
always wanted to. I visited the village in the autumn, which was a good choice as it was less crowded
than in the summer. I’d read about its history and knew that the buildings were from many different styles
and periods but hadn’t realised how colourful they would be.
Portmeirion didn’t exist in the nineteenth century. The first building didn’t go up until 1926 and the last in
1976. It was built by Sir Clough Williams. From the age of 5, he dreamed of building his own village. He
wanted to show that it was possible to build a village in a lovely area and not spoil it. In 1919 he sailed
around the British coast for several months looking for a suitable spot. He visited 22 possible sites before
he found the place of his dreams at last, just 8 km away from his family home.
Sir Clough had to build cheaply and quickly and I discovered that some of the buildings even have
painted windows which were cheaper than putting in real windows! Some were built so that they look
grander than they are. The windows in the bell tower, for example, are smaller as you go up the tower, so
it seems taller from the ground than it really is.On my second day there I stood on the balcony of my hotel at dawn. As I looked over the Austrian-style
houses and Italian piazzas with the wonderful view of the Welsh coastline in the background, I realised
what Clough Williams was trying to do.
11 What is the writer trying to do?
A give information about where to stay in Portmeirion
B compare Portmeirion to other similar villages
C describe a visit to Portmeirion
D suggest what improvements could be made to Portmeirion
12 What surprised the writer about the village?
A the mixture of buildings
B the beauty of the area
C the number of visitors
D the different colours used
13 What was the aim of Clough Williams in 1919?
A to build a village without damaging the natural surroundings
B to make an existing village more beautiful
C to build a village as close to his home as possible
D to visit as many villages as possible before building his own
14 What did the writer find out about some of the buildings?
A They cost more to build than expected.
B They aren’t as big as they look.
C There was a mistake in their design.
D Some of the windows need replacing.
15. Which of these postcards did the write send form Portmeirion?
A It’s my first visit to the area, and I hadn’t realised how lovely this coast if. We hould have a holiday
together in Portmeirion.
B I discovered Portmeirion by chance. I’ve really enjoined finding out about its history and looking at the
C I hadn’t been to Portmeirion before but I’m pleased I came. I now realise what a special place it is.
D Portmeirion village is getting bigger all the time. I don’t think they should add any more new buildings.

place of their choice anywhere in the world. The second team to cross the line receive climbing
