2.       Reading


The still-active Bromo volcano is a day’s drive from Surabaya. Standing on top of this almost 2400 metre high mountain is an unforgettable experience. The Bromo crater suddenly rises up in the middle of a sea of sand ‘lautan passir’. Looking down from the top of the Bromo into the smoking crater, combined with the view over the 10 km long Tengger massif is, we would guess, like standing on the moon.

Although one must get started by three o’clock in the morning and walk for an hour through the sea of sand to get the best sunrise view, it is worth your effort. During the rainy season it is better wait until after sunrise for climbing Bromo, which then can be cloudy at dawn. The Bromo highlands are also an important centre for traditional Hindu Javanese beliefs. In the 15th century many Hindu believers fled to the mountains for a safe haven for the upcoming Moslem rulers.



Answer the following questions:

  1. Where is the location of Mt. Bromo?
  2. How to get the best sunrise view at Mt. Bromo?
  3. What do you think about Mt. Bromo?
  4. What is the most interesting place you ever visit? Tell the class

The (14)____________ leaves some questions unanswered, however. Ms. Singh says it is not possible to say whether the amount or kind of activity affected the level of academic improvement. This is because of (15)_____________ among the studies.

Also, they were mostly observational studies. An observational study is where researchers do not do controlled (16)________________. They only describe what they observe.
