Seven Simple and Creative Ways to Earn Money   

  

Some companies can offer you good money for giving promotional materials to people in public. For    working 4-5 hours on weekends, you can earn between $40-$60.   

                  

This option is more suitable for guys, but girls are often accepted too. People re-locating to a new home need help packing possessions into boxes, as well as putting them into a truck.  A lot of moving companies allow you to create an account with them for a price, list your services, rates, working hours etc. and get hired for temporary jobs. Check out this list to get a better idea of how much you can actually earn for lifting someone’s sofa.     

Yes, that’s exactly how much you can make with Lyfta cool app eliminating the need to use taxis. Users can send a SMS and request a drive in all major cities in the US. It’s faster and cheaper than calling the typical cab. You, as a driver, decide your own working hours. Obviously, you’ll need your own car and some initial money to pay for gas.   

How many dresses or shirts do you have that you wore only once and now they’re somewhere in your closet?   

Clothes you don’t use anymore can become cash in your pocket. You can sell the items through ThredUp, which will pay around $2-$25 for stuff from Gap, Banana Republic, H&M, etc. The only thing you need to do is pack your clothes in a box and then just ship it to ThredUp.     

A lot of big companies look for opinions about their online business pages, and you can get paid doing that. Expect to earn somewhere from 10 cents for a short job, to $10-$15 for larger online questionnaires which take more of your time. Here’s a big list of sites where you can create an account and start earning cash.   

At our web-based business you can offer any kind of service starting at $5. Register an account, examine the jobs people offer, and offer something similar. At this online market you can sell and buy all kinds of services from graphic design work to things like “I’ll pretend to be your girlfriend on Facebook for 2 days”. Write a job description clearly describing what you’ll do for 5 dollars; mention extra services you’ll give (such as “I’ll deliver the order in just one day.” etc); add a payment method – Paypal or bank transfer, etc. and start earning money!   

 

If you are particularly good at something, like cutting hair, and you can create a series of video lessons, you can become a tutor at SkillShare. You don’t need to have teaching experience, just skills and passion about what you do, and a phone camera. Your earnings will depend on the popularity of your course, but even just a few students will bring in money

Text ii   

 Read the following text and clearly indicate the option - A, B, C or D - which best completes the sentence or answers the question according to the text. (5 points)   

Example:             The storm centre of a hurricane starts forming   

Near the Atlantic.   

In the continental U.S.   

In the Rocky Mountains.   

Near the Caribbean.   

          Two of the most dangerous storms in America are hurricanes and tornadoes. All of those who live in the area where they can occur fear them.    

          Hurricanes, which usually develop between July and October, originate over the waters of the   

Caribbean Sea. They move upwards to the continental U.S., somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean. When they reach the land, they are incredibly powerful and are accompanied by heavy rain and strong winds. These winds can travel at over 120 kilometres per hour, and cover an area of over 900 kilometres. Every year homes are destroyed by them and lives are often lost. Most people who live near the south coast are forced to evacuate their homes and move to safer areas until the storm passes.   

          If you travel to the Midwest, you probably won’t encounter a hurricane, but there is another kind of storm there which is almost as bad. It is called a tornado. Tornadoes are violent storms with an intense wind which is capable of lifting trees, cars and even heavier objects such as homes into the air. These storms occur mostly in summer and can be identified by their strong wind and lack of rain. Tornadoes normally travel at around 60 kilometers per hour and the winds can reach up to 800 kilometers per hour. Tornadoes are most frequent in the United States, east of the Rocky Mountains, and especially in the Mississippi area, where about 150 occur each year.    

          Both hurricanes and tornadoes cause millions of dollars worth of damage each year. Today they can be predicted more easily than in the past, but they cannot be stopped. When they come, the people affected by them have to endure them, with the hope that they will survive them.
