    1) Read the following text about Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, and do the tasks below.

    Bill Gates is the co-founder of Microsoft, the world's largest PC software company. He is among the

    richest people in the world. Bill Gates' interest in computers started when he was a teenager. After high

    school, he was accepted to several top colleges in the USA: Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. He chose to

    go to Harvard to study law. At Harvard, he focused more on his interest in computers than on

    coursework. He often relaxed by playing video games in Harvard's computer lab. He left Harvard before

    graduating because he wanted to open a software company with his friend Paul Allen. However, he later

    said, ‛I don't think dropping out is a good idea.' In 2007, he received an honorary degree from Harvard.

    He began his speech by saying this to his father in the audience. ‛I've been waiting more than 30 years

    to say this: Dad, I always told you I'd come back and get my degree.' Bill Gates is no longer working full
