READING 
Read the two passages carefully and choose the correct answer. 
 (I) In some countries, Teachers’ Days are intended to be special days for the 
appreciation of teachers. Some of them are holidays while others are celebrated during 
working days. 
 In Vietnam, Teachers’ Day is celebrated on November 20th. This celebration allows 
students to express their respect to their teacher. Students begin preparing a week in 
advance, and many classes usually prepare literature, music shows and art to welcome 
Teacher’s Day, while other students prepare foods and flowers for the parties held at 
their schools. Students usually visit their teachers at their homes to offer flowers and 
small gifts, or organize trips with their teachers and classmates. Former students also 
pay respect to their former teachers on this day. The holiday has its origins in a meeting 
between educators in 1957. It was first celebrated in 1958 as the Day of the 
International Manifest of Educators; in 1982 the day is renamed Vietnamese Teachers’ 
Day. 
 In the United States, during Teacher Appreciation Week, which takes place in the first 
full week of May, students often show appreciation for their teachers with token gifts. 
The National Education Association (NEA) describes National Teacher Day as “a day 
for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives”. 
The NEA gives a history of National Teacher Day. In 1944, Mattye Whyte Woodridge, 
a teacher, began corresponding with political and educational leaders about the need for 
a national day to honour teachers. Congress declared March 7, 1980, as National 
Teacher Day for that year only. NEA and its affiliates continued to observe Teacher 
Day on the first Tuesday in March until 1985, when the National Parent-Teacher 
Association established Teacher Appreciation Week as the first full week of May. The 
NEA Representative Assembly then voted to make the Tuesday of that week National 
Teacher Day. September 11 was also adopted as Teachers’ Day in the U.S. state of 
Massachusetts Currently, Massachusetts sets the first Sunday of June as its own 
Teacher’s Day annually. 
 In South Korea, the day to respect teachers is on May 15. Originally it was started by 
a group of red-cross youth team members who visited their sick exteachers at hospitals. 
The national celebration ceremony had been stopped between 1973 and 1982 and it 
resumed after that. On the celebration day, teachers are usually presented with 
carnations by their students, and both enjoy a shorter school day. Ex-students pay their 
respects to the former teachers by visiting them and handing a carnation.

places around the world. Mothers often receive gifts on this day. Different countries 
celebrate Mother’s Day on various days of the year because the day has a number of 
Thẩm Tâm Vy EXTRA COURSE - GRADE 11 UNIT EIGHT - TEST No. 1
different origins. In some countries the Mother’s Day began not as a celebration for
individual mothers but rather for Christians.
The United States celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May. In 1914
President Woodrow Wilson declared the first national Mother’s Day as a day for
American citizens to show the flag in honor of those mothers whose sons had died in
war. Mother’s Day continues to this day to be one of the most commercially successful
U.S. occasions. According to the National Restaurant Association, Mother’s Day is now
the most popular day of the year to dine out at a restaurant in the United States.
In most countries, Mother’s Day is a new concept copied from western civilization. In
many African countries, the idea of one Mother’s Day has its origins in copying the
British concept, although there are many festivals and events celebrating mothers within
the many diverse cultures on the African continent that have been there centuries before
the colonials arrived. In most of East Asia, Mother’s Day is a heavily marketed and
commercialized concept copied straight from Mother’s Day in the USA.
