Text A

What are the benefits of a paper-free office? The advantages are clear and really impressive. First of all, it saves money. You won’t have to spend on printers, papers, inks, and shredders. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, going paperless can save a company about $80 for each staff member per year. Secondly, it saves time. On average, it takes an employee about 5 minutes to go to a filing cabinet, find a needed document, and return to a desk to be able to work on it. Obviously much of their time will be freed up by going paperless. Finally, it improves business workflow. When all your documents are in electronic form, co-operation becomes faster and easier. For instance, being able to sign papers digitally allows you to avoid the old-fashioned print-sign-scan-send routine. So, the absence of paper should help make your employees better organized.

Task 5

Read the following two texts about two office supply retailers and answer questions 31-40.

 

Text A

In 1985, Staples’ founder Tom Stemberg was working on a business proposal over the weekend when his typewriter ribbon broke. Because it was a holiday, local suppliers and stationery stores were closed. Tom drove to every store that was open but he couldn’t find the correct ribbon. Tom realized that the world needed a supermarket for office products. On May 1, 1986, Staples opened the world’s very first office supply superstore in Boston. Soon, Staples was such a success that 20 other companies opened similar retail shops during the next two years, yet today, only three major retailers remain in the business. Staples has changed much in the past three decades by adding more products, opening new stores, and offering different ways to shop, making the company more and more global. One thing, however, remains the same: Customers are Staples’ priority and Staples is always there to help them.

Text B

In October of 1986, Fort Lauderdale, Florida became the home of the first Office Depot OfficeMax. The company’s goal was to build a place where people could buy a large amount of office supplies for very cheap prices. In just 31 years, Office Depot OfficeMax has grown into a multi-billion dollar company as well as a leader in the business world. In North America, there are now more than 1,400 OfficeMax stores. In addition, there are now more than 38,000 workers helping millions of buyers across the world meet retail, sales, and supply chain needs. The company says that “as we look to the future, we want to lead the world in providing office supplies, services, and solutions to problems. Our goal is to find new and exciting ways to help our customers take care of business. If you’re ready for better than ‘business as usual’, we would love to meet you!”

Task 2

Today I’m going to tell you about a wonderful hotel in Hangzhou. The White Hotel, so called because it’s painted—white! It’s located in the southwest of Hangzhou on one of the most beautiful islands—Crystal Island. The best time to go there is October.

 

Built in 2011, The White Hotel is one of the newest hotels in this part of the city and has become very popular ever since. Guests can have a view of the lakes or mountains from every room. But booking a room is not easy because there are only fifty-six rooms and the hotel can’t take more than eighty guests at a time.

 

The hotel has a nice restaurant serving good dishes. The most famous one is the fish cooked with tomatoes and people like to eat fish there because it’s freshly caught each day in the lake around the island.
