Learning English as a foreign language is sometimes interchanged with learning English as a second language. Indonesian, Thai, and Japanese learn English as a foreign language, because the people have their own official language that is Indonesian, Thai, and Japanese respectively. In big cities in Indonesia, people speak Indonesian at home, in the shops and at schools whereas in small towns or in villages people speak Indonesian and vernaculars (Javanese, Balinese, Batak, etc.) interchangeably. They speak English only at schools in their English classrooms.

Questions 46 and 47 are based on the following text
PICKING A HOME THEATER
Home Theaters aren't just for movie moguls anymore. With a big-screen television, DVD player and surround sound-system, you can live like you're one of the rap stars on "MTV Cribs." But you don't need to take out a second mortgage to get the cinematic experience. There are packages to fit every budget. Television is the heart of your system. The bigger the TV is better, but don't empty your pockets while overwhelming the room with a TV that is just too large. Generally, for a 10-foot-by-10-foot room, a 27-inch screen is fine; if you watch a lot of movies on DVD, you should consider a wide screen set. A high quality DVD player is also important. Look for one that uses "progressive scanning," which displays a sharper image on TVs that support it.
According to the reading, what is the most important part of a home theater?
A. Television. B. MTV Cribs: C. DVD Players.
D. A 10-foot-by-lO-foot room.
What does the word "mortgage" mean? A. Social support
