Inside Reading Unit 1 Name: _HANI KHATTAB ____________ Date: __ 25 /feb/2019__________ Reading Comprehension: True/False Mark each statement as T (true) or F (false) according to the information in the reading passage. Read this passage carefully and answer the questions that follow. The Chunnel Tourists and business people who travel between England and France now have the opportunity to make the trip via the Channel Tunnel and enjoy an underground adventure. The Chunnel is the common term for the tunnels that have been created under the English Channel connecting the two countries. The Chunnel runs between Folestone, England, and Calais, France, and was completed in 1994. The idea of creating a passage under the English Channel is centuries old. In fact, Napoleon's engineers drew plans to connect the two countries via a tunnel that included chimneys for ventilation. The chimneys would have emerged from the water at various places along the passage. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), the tunnel was not completed until over 150 years after Napoleon's death, and the design was considerably different. There are actually three tunnels. One tunnel carries trains from England to France. Another tunnel carries trains from France to England. A third tunnel is located between the two tunnels. It carries service vehicles and provides an emergency exit. The service tunnel connects to each outside tunnel, and workers can walk into either of the tunnels through ports to do repairs. During a fire in the early years of the tunnel's operation, passengers were able to escape by walking through the service tunnel to safety.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
