In Britain, the average young person now spends more money on games each year than on going to the cinema or renting videos. But is this……..46……a bad thing? For years, newspaper reports have been ………47…..that children who spend too much time playing computer games become unsociable, bad- tempered, even violent as a……..48…… But new research, ………49……out in both Europe and the USA, suggests that the opposite may be true.
Indeed, playing some of the more complicated games may help people of all ages to improve certain skills. Researchers claim that this is because the games………50……the brain work harder in certain ways, like……..51……sounds and movements quickly and identifying what they are.

Ask most people for their list of Top ten fears, and you’ll be sure to find (26) ---------- burgled fairly high on the list.
