1. Oxford University has been a centre of learning for over 900 years. Today, there are over 16,000 people studying at Oxford, but they are not all British. About 4,000 of them come from other countries. In fact, there are currently students from over 130 countries studying there. Every student at Oxford is a member of a 'college'. There are 39 main colleges, and each college is in a different part of the town.
2. What's the best age for a child to learn how to read? Some people believe that children should learn at as young an age as possible. Because of this, some parents start teaching their children when they are about three years old. Other people believe it's better for a teacher at school to teach a class of children how to read, so many children don't learn to read until they are five or six years old.
3. In most countries, you are only allowed to drive a car on a public road if you have a driving licence. You usually have to pass a driving test in order to get the licence. In European countries, this test is in two parts. The first part is a 'theory' test. You have to answer questions about road safety. The second part is a 'practical' test. You are in a car with an examiner, who tells you where to drive and asks you to do various things, such as parking or reversing around a corner.
4. When was Mozart born? What's the capital of Nigeria? Before the Internet, if we wanted to find out the answers to these questions, we'd have to look them up in reference books, such as encyclopaedias. If we couldn't find the information in books at home, we'd have to go to a public library. This kind of research would often take a very long time. Now, however, as long as you have a computer connected to the Internet, you can find the answers to questions like these in seconds.
5. Although people sometimes confuse astronomy and astrology, they are completely different. Astronomy is the scientific study of the universe. Astronomers study stars, planets and other things in space, such as comets, and record their findings scientifically. Astrology, which is based on the belief that the position of the planets affects human behaviour, is not a science. It is astrologers who write horoscopes in magazines, telling us what they think is going to happen to us in the future.
6. A guide book can be extremely helpful when you're visiting a place for the first time. Guide books provide loads of practical information, such as the opening times and entrance fees of the main attractions, and often recommend sights to visit and places to stay. They can also provide interesting information about the history of the place and famous people who lived there.
