    Part One : Read the text carefully then do the activities:

    Athenians thought of themselves as the shining star of the Greek city-states. They were famous for their literature, poetry, drama, theatre, schools, buildings, and government. Before the Greek dark ages, Athens was a small village and developed rapidly until it became one of the two most powerful city-states in the ancient Greek world. The Greeks believed that each city-state in ancient Greece had a god or a goddess in charge of it, their special patron. For Athens, the patron was Athena, goddess of wisdom. Perhaps because Athena was their patron, Athenians put a great deal of emphasis on education. Girls learned at home from their mothers to run a home; and to be good wives and mothers. While boys were educated quite differently; until the age of 7, they were taught at home by their mothers then attended a day school outside the home from 7 to 14. There, they memorized Homeric poetry and learned to play the lyre. They learned drama, public speaking, writing, math, and perhaps even how to play the flute. After middle-school, they went to a four year high-school and learned more about math, science, and government. At the age of 18, they attended two years of military school. This is why Athens was proud of its system of education. The men of Athens met each week to discuss problems and work on solutions. For about 100 years, Athens was a direct democracy.

    Written expression:

    Topic 1: In Algeria, boys and girls attend school until they are 16. Education is very important in our country: It is compulsory and free. The government spends great amounts of money to ensure schooling to more than seven million children. There are three types of schools in Algeria: primary, middle, secondary. Schoolboys and schoolgirls are required to attend lessons from eight to twelve a.m. and then from two to four or five p.m. They are obliged to wear a uniform, to respect their teachers and to attend all the lessons. There are various subject matters at school: Arabic, history, geography, maths, physics, foreign languages, biology, etc…. Algerian pupils have to study hard to pass their examinations. The most important ones are the BEM ( Middle Educations Brevet) and the Baccalaureat which permits them to go to university.

    Topic 2:
    The Islamic civilization contributed a lot to the building of modern sciences. The Muslims were the inventors of many mathematical rules. They even put the basis of Algebra which is an Arabic word ( Al Djabr ). Al Khawarizmi invented the algorithms ( word taken from his own name ). Moreover, who doesn‘t know Ibn Sina and his book ―The Canons of Medicine‖. Till the 17th century, students were taught upon his books and discoveries. Muslims were also great astronomers. They enjoy observing the sky, the space and its planets. They invented the telescope and gave names to at least six planets. In the field of human sciences, no body can ignore Ibn Khaldun who, in fact, founded the basis of sociology in his ― El Muqqadima‖ . The Islamic civilization was a great one. But the western world has tried its best to ignore it.
