Directions: There are 10 blanks in the following passage. For each blank there are four choices marked A), B), C) and D) on the right side of the paper. You should choose the ONE that best fits into the passage.
How man first learned to invent words is unknown; in other word, the origin of language is a mystery. All we really know is that men,  21   animals, somehow invented certain sounds to express thoughts and feelings, actions and things,   22 that they could communicate with each other, and that later they agreed upon certain signs, called letters, which could be combined to represent those sounds and which could be written down. Those sounds,  23 spoken or written, in letters, we call words.
The power of words, then,  24 their associations – the things they bring up before our minds. Words become filled with meaning for us by  25  ; and the longer we live, the more certain words  26   to us the glad and sad events of our past; and the more we read and learn, the more the number of words that mean something to us increases.
Great writers are those who not only have great thoughts but also express these thoughts in words which appeal  27  to our minds and emotions. This charming and telling use of words is  28  we call literary style. Above all, the real poet is a  29 of words. He can convey his meaning in words which sing like music, and which by their position and association can move men to tears. We should, therefore, learn to  30  our words carefully and use them accurately, or they will make our speech silly and vulgar.

When I first knew Mike, we lived in a small village in Scotland. It was very different
from Mike's life in London now. We went to school together on our bicycles. Every morning I went to his house and knocked on the door. Every morning Mike's mum said, "I'm sorry. He's a bit late this morning", and so I had to wait. Each day we were late for school, and I remember the teacher got very annoyed with us. I never told her we were late because of Mike. Now, 25 years later, I play tennis with Mike. I usually drive him to the tennis club.
I go to his flat and he opens the door and says, "I'm sorry. I'm a bit late today." The only reason he wasn't late for his own wedding is that we lied to him about the time!
      As boys we spent a lot of time out exploring on our hikes. We went walking and fishing. I didn't like fishing because I couldn't swim. Probably the funniest thing we did was when we stole a bottle of whiskey from my Dad. We cycled about 5 miles away to drink it in one of our favourite places. When we finished drinking it, we couldn't cycle back – it was a long, slow walk. I'm sure we looked awful. We still do, when we come back from the pub on Friday nights. Nothing's changed really. Oh, and I still can't swim.

I once asked a cabbie to describe his life to me and he didn't stop talking until I arrived home half an hour later. He told me many interesting stories and this is one of them: “Some very strange things happen late at night. The other day I was taking a woman home from a party. She had a little dog with her. When we got to her house she found that she'd lost her key. So, I waited in the cab with the dog while she climbed up the window.” “I waited … and waited … After half an hour of ringing the bell I decided to find out what was going on. I tied the dog to a tree and started to climb up the window. The next thing I knew was that the police came. They thought that I was trying to rob the house! Luckily, the woman came downstairs, she'd gone to sleep and forgotten about me and the dog. I was in such a hurry to get away that I forgot to ask her for the fare(车资,车费).”?

Country music is one of the most popular kinds of music in the United States today because it is about simple but strong human feelings and events-love, sadness, good times, and bad times. It tells real-life, stories and sounds the way people really talk. As life becomes more complicated(复杂), it is good to hear music about ordinary people.
Country music, sometimes called country-western, comes from two kinds of music. One is the traditional music of the people in the Appalachian Mountains in the eastern Unite States. The other is traditional cowboy music from the west. The singers usually play guitars, and in the 1920s they started using electric guitars. At first city people said country music was low class. It was popular mostly in the South. But during World War II, thousands of Southerners went to the Northeast and Midwest to work in the factories. They took their music with them. Soldiers from the rest of the country went to army camps(军营)in the South. They learned country music. Slowly it became popular all over the country.
Today country music is also popular everywhere in the United States and Canada—in small towns and in New York City, among black and white, and among educated and uneducated people. About 1, 200 radio stations broadcast country music twenty-four hours a day. English stars sing it in British English, and people in other countries sing it in their own languages. The music that started with cowboys and poor southerners is now popular all over the world.   
53. It can be learned from the passage that country music comes from       .
  A. the Northeast and Midwest
  B. factories and army camps in the South
  C. the Appalachian Mountains and the West
  D. real-life stories in small towns
54. Before World War II country music was popular mainly in       .
  A. the south           B. the north
  C. the Midwest        D. the Northeast
55. During World War II many Southerners went to the Northeast and the Mid-west because       .
  A. they wanted to take music with them
  B. they wanted to make other people like country music
  C. they wanted to work in the factories there
  D. they wanted to make country music popular
56. Country music is one of the most popular kinds of music in the world today because       .
  A. city people said it was low class
  B. people could sing it in many different languages

Corporations, markets, investors, and elites are going global. The globalization that is so often celebrated by economists, pundits (权威), corporate executives, and the leaders of the world’s richest nations is actually their “globalization from above.”               
Globalization from above can and should be contested by a “globalization from below” through which people at the grassroots around the world link up to impose their own needs and interests on the process of globalization. A movement embodying globalization from below is already emerging. Its global grassroots solidarity has the power to transform the world. Globalization gets mixed reviews. Greater interconnectedness among the world’s people seems to promise a “global village” in which the destructive opposition of the past can be left behind, replaced by global cooperation and enriching diversity. The advocates of a world without national economic barriers maintain that it will make everyone, including the people and countries at the bottom, better off.
But the actual experience of end-of-Mellenium globalization has not fulfilled this promise. Instead, it has given us more poor people than the world has ever known and increased threats to the environmental conditions on which human life itself depends. It has led many to fear the loss of hard-won social and environmental protections and even of meaningful self-government. Globalization from above is provoking a worldwide movement of resistance. While this movement has been gathering for years, many people first became aware of it in late 1999, when tens of thousands of protesters brought the Seattle meeting of the World Trade Organization to a halt. As The New York Times reported, “The surprisingly large protests in Seattle by critics of the World Trade Organization point to the emergence of a new and vocal coalition” that included “not just steelworkers and auto workers, but anti-sweatshop protesters from colleges across the nation and members of church groups, consumer groups, the Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth and the Humane Society.”
This movement is neither a one-shot nor a local phenomenon. As Elaine Bernard, executive director of the Harvard Trade Union Program, put it in the Washington Post, “The WTO meeting was merely the place where these people burst onto the American public’s radar. Social movements around the world had already linked into grass-roots networks, made possible by the astonishing speed at which they can communicate in the Internet era.”
1. What is the bad effect of globalization from above?
A)        It ignores the needs and interests of people at the bottom.
B)        It only helps the privileged people.
C)        It causes many people to fear the social chaos.
D)        It deprives of ordinary people’s changing the society.
2. The “global village” in this passage refers to ____________.
A)        the destructive opposition of the past.
B)        economic unity of the world
C)        global cooperation and greater diversity.
D)        the whole world becoming one village.
3. Which of the following is not an actual consequence of end-of-Millenium globalization?
A) Loss of social and environmental protection.
B) More poor people than ever before.
C)        Worsening of global environmental conditions.
D) Elimination of national economic barriers.
4. The word “grassroots” in Line 5, Para 2 most probably means _______________.
A) the poorest people in the society
B) the leaders in the government
C)        the economists in the society
D) the ordinary people remote from political decisions
5. Which of the following could be the best title for this passage ?__________.
A) Globalization is Feasible
B) The Globalization Movement
C) The Globalization and Economy
D)        Globalization and WTO

Passage Two
Questions 41 to 45 are based on the following passage.
Researchers find brain compartmentalizes dreams in two sleep periods: more aggressive dreams come during early stage of slumber. Your wildest dreams probably start soon after your head hits the pillow.A new study finds that more aggressive, emotionally charged dreams tend to occur in the early, rapid-eye-movement (REM) period of sleep, whereas deeper, non-REM slumber encourages gentler, kinder dreaming. The finding that the brain compartmentalizes dreams into two separate sleep periods may also put to rest the theory that dreams are no more than a meaningless rehash of random images, according to the researchers. “That’s been a very dominant theory for the past decade, and if our study gets replicated, then the hypothesis that dreams are random and without purpose is refuted,” said lead researcher Patrick McNamara, a professor of neurology at Boston University School of Medicine. Although the two are fundamental human functions, the debate continues as to the exact purpose, if any, of dreaming.
As McNamara explained, REM sleep occurs during the first couple of hours as you drift off, whereas non-REM sleep typically makes up the latter six hours in a normal eight-hour sleep cycle. During REM sleep, the brain remains somewhat more active than in non-REM sleep, especially when it comes to the brain’s emotional centers. As part of the experiment, the researchers woke participants during REM or non-REM sleep and had them verbally record their dreams, thoughts and feelings immediately before being roused from slumber.
Specifically, dreams in which the sleeper is being angry or “emotionally aggressive” towards another person were much more common in REM sleep. In fact, these socially aggressive dreams were never found to occur during non-REM sleep throughout the entire study. On the other hand, dreams involving friendly, non-threatening social interactions comprised 90 percent of all “socializing” type dreams recorded during non-REM sleep, the researchers report. For example, dreams may be the brain’s way of “rehearsing” social interactions, priming people for the emotional challenges to come. McNamara pointed out that certain genes help govern aggressive or passive behaviors, so it might be possible that these genes are more or less active during REM vs. non-REM slumber.
The fact that the brain’s emotional centers remain active during the early REM stage of sleep might also encourage emotionally aggressive dreams during that time, said sleep expert Richard Bootzin, of the University of Arizona. Bootzin said McNamara’s study “opens the door to lots of new questions,” but he cautioned that it did have limitations.

Section B Short Answer Questions
Directions: In this section, you will read a passage. After the passage there are 5 questions. Answer these 5 questions in the fewest possible words.
Passage Three
Questions are based on the following passage.
When I consider the relationship between language and economy, I never cease to be surprised to see how few studies exist, and to note the lack of systematic research into language choice, identity and market. Why should this be so? In my opinion, there are several reasons. In the first place, because the arguing relationship between language, identity and politics has dominated (or monopolized) the thinking of scientists and investigators; in second place, because once a linguistic market is in place, through the imposition of a legitimate language by the nation-state, this fact becomes a given, relegating the original symbolic violence to oblivion and intervening in its favor by preaching the need ostensibly to further linguistic exchange and communication and, in third place there is the fact that minority languages are in a state of economic dependence to such an extent that we are hindering from thinking of most of them in terms of linguistic markets not needing public intervention to sustain them.
There is relationship between economy and language that can be discerned, and this has more to do with the political economy of the language. That is, with the principles informing the regulation of the language market. It is this that Bourdieu refers to when he affirms that the official language came into being linked with the State --- both in its genesis and in terms of its social uses. The state language becomes the theoretical norm by which all other linguistic practices are objectively measured. It is during the constitution of the State that the conditions for the creation of a unified linguistic market are created, dominated by the official language: obligatory on official occasions, and in official places (schools, public administration, political institutions, etc.), and it is in this way that the state language becomes the theoretical norm by which all linguistic practices are objectively measured. It is assumed that no one is ignorant of linguistic law, which has its body of legal experts, its grammars, and its agents of control. The latter are the school teachers, invested with a special power: that of universally examining and applying the legal sanction of the school diploma to the linguistic results of the speaker-subjects under their protection.
11. According to the passage, what shocked the author?
12. The thinking of scientists and investigators has been dominated by _______.
13. What’s the state of minority language in comparison to state language?

Section C Fast Reading
Directions: In this section, you will read a passage. After the passage, there are some statements. Decide which statement is true and which statement is false. Write T for true and F for false after each statement.
Passage Four
Questions are based on the following passage.
Culture has been defined as “the sum of attitudes, customs, and beliefs that distinguishes one group of people from another.” We are all members of many groups. With each membership, we encounter a unique culture. There is the culture of citizenship, family and church culture, ethnic culture, and many more. “Cross culture” suggests that multiple memberships produce a cross-breed of defining features taken from each unique group to form something altogether distinct and yet wholly dependent for its existence on the sum of the parts. That is one option and would quite possibly make for an interesting article. But such is not the intent of this author.  
The cross I refer to is described by The Random House College Dictionary as, “a structure consisting essentially of an upright and a transverse piece, upon which persons were formerly put to death.” Those who believe in Jesus of Nazareth, His death at the hand of the Romans, and more importantly, His resurrection, are defined by the culture of the cross. At the foot of the cross, we are confident of truth and of our ability to know it. We believe we may seek and find the truth.  
To undertake, along with a discussion of cross culture, a discussion of the “culture of unbelief,” presumes that there is a group of people who are defined, not by what they accept or reject as true, but by the fact that they do not consider truth as something that may be known. This is, in many ways, a description of our generation. The experts tell us it is no longer a matter of “which truth” but “if truth,” and we believe the experts.  
The two cultures, of unbelief and of the cross, while diametrically opposed, are intimately related: one picks up where the other ends. We started NeoPolitique because we grew weary of hearing that truth eludes us; that we may, at best, have only shifting shades of meaning. Our quest for answers in NeoPolitique – answers for this generation – begins with a belief that truth exists. The new politics includes a confidence in authority and a belief that it can be directed and properly limited according to an unwavering standard of truth.  
The Scriptures say that “the word of the cross is to those who are perishing, foolishness, but to those who are being saved it is the power of God.” If your first response to the culture of the cross is mockery, look deeper. Don’t stop with ridicule. Consider for a moment that the words are true, that the appearance of foolishness is evidence of perishing, and “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.” You may decide, at the end of your search, that you do not like what you turn up. But, if you merely accept the noise of post-modern culture, which says there is no truth, you surrender your power to choose.
True or False
16. The author intends to give an interesting presentation about culture differences.
17The cross is a symbol of belief and truth for those who believe in Jesus.
18. The culture of our generation is defined by experts as unbelief.
19. NeoPolitique is based on the belief that governments often abuse power without limit.
20 We should strive to find out the truth instead of standing aside with doubt
Globalization has been fostered by technological progress, which is reducing the costs of transportation and communications between countries. Dramatic falls in the cost of telecommunications, of processing, storing and transmitting information, make it much easier to track down and close on business opportunities around the world, to coordinate operations in far-flung locations, or to trade online services that previously were not internationally tradable at all.
It may not be surprising (though it is not very helpful) that “globalization” is sometimes used in a much broader economic sense, as another name for capitalism or the market economy. When used in this sense the concerns expressed are really about key features of the market economy, such as production by privately-owned and profit-motivated corporations, frequent reshuffling of resources according to changes in supply and demand, and unpredictable and rapid technological change. It is certainly important to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the market economy as such, and to better understand the institutions and policies needed to make it work most effectively. And societies need to think hard about how to best manage the implications of rapid technological change. But there is little to be gained by confusing these distinct (though related) issues with economic globalization in its core sense, that is, the expansion of cross-border economic ties.
The best way to deal with the changes being brought about by the international integration of markets for goods, services and capital is to be open and honest about them. As this series of Briefs note, globalization brings opportunities, but it also brings risks. While exploiting the opportunities for higher economic growth and better living standards that more openness brings, policy makers — international, national and local — also face the challenge of mitigating the risks for the poor, vulnerable and marginalized, and of increasing equity and inclusion.
Even when poverty is falling overall, there can be regional or sectoral increases about which society needs to be concerned. Over the last century the forces of globalization have been among those that have contributed to a huge improvement in human welfare, including raising countless millions out of poverty. Going forward, these forces have the potential to continue bringing great benefits to the poor, but how strongly they do so will also continue to depend crucially on factors such as the quality of overall macroeconomic policies, the workings of institutions, both formal and informal, the existing structure of assets, and the available resources, among many others. In order to arrive at fair and workable approaches to these very real human needs, government must listen to the voices of all its citizens.
1.Which of the following statements is NOT a factor that makes globalization easier   to track down around the world?
A) the great decrease of the cost of telecommunications

C)        processing, storing and transmitting information
D)        technological progress

Passage Two
Questions are based on the following passage.
Immigration always has been controversial in the United States. More than two centuries ago, Benjamin Franklin worried that too many German immigrants would swamp America’s predominantly British culture. In the mid-1800s, Irish immigrants were scorned as lazy drunks, not to mention Roman Catholics. At the turn of the century a wave of “new immigrants” — Poles, Italians, Russian Jews — were believed to be too different ever to assimilate into American life. Today the same fears are raised about immigrants from Latin America and Asia, but current critics of immigration are as wrong as their counterparts were in previous eras.
Immigration is not undermining the American experiment; it is an integral part of it. America is a nation of immigrants. Successive waves of immigrants have kept the country demographically young, enriched the culture and added to productive capacity as a nation, enhancing the influence in the world. Immigration gives the United States an economic edge in the world economy. Immigrants bring innovative ideas and entrepreneurial spirit to the U.S. economy. They provide business contacts to other markets, enhancing America’s ability to trade and invest profitably in the global economy. They keep our economy flexible, allowing U.S. producers to keep prices down and to respond to changing consumer demands. An authoritative 1997 study by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) concluded that immigration delivered a “significant positive gain” to the U.S. economy. In testimony before Congress last year, Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan said, “I’ve always argued that this country has benefited immensely from the fact that we draw people from all over the world.”
Contrary to popular myth, immigrants do not push Americans out of jobs. Immigrants tend to fill jobs that Americans cannot or will not fill, mostly at the high and low ends of the skill spectrum. Immigrants are disproportionately represented in such high-skilled fields as medicine, physics and computer science, but also in lower-skilled sectors such as hotels and restaurants, domestic service, construction and light manufacturing. Immigrants also raise demand for goods as well as the supply. During the long boom of the 1990s, and especially in the second half of the decade, the national unemployment rate fell below 4 percent and real wages rose up and down the income scale during a time of relatively high immigration.
Nowhere is the contribution of immigrants more apparent than in the high-technology and other knowledge-based sectors. Silicon Valley and other high-tech sectors would cease to function if we foolishly were to close our borders to skilled and educated immigrants. These immigrants represent human capital that can make our entire economy more productive. Immigrants have developed new products, such as the Java computer language, that have created employment opportunities for millions of Americans.
6. What does the word “swamp” in Line 3 Para. 1  probably mean?
A) soak in the water                                B) flood to a large extent
C) overwhelm                                        D) compete with each other
7. What is the author’s attitude toward the critics of immigration?
A)        Negative                B) Positive                C) Indifferent                D) Ironical
8. Which of the following statements is Not True according to the passage?
A) Immigration is a necessary part for the American experiment.
B)        Immigrants have increased the productivity of U.S.
C)        Immigrants bring original ideas to the U.S. economy.
D)        Immigration is actually damaging the American experiment.
9. What contributions do immigrants make to the Americans?
A)        Immigrants fill jobs only at the high and low ends of the skill range.
B)        Immigrants help Americans build the country in every sector.
C)        Immigrants push Americans out of job in the high-tech area.
D)        Immigrants have kept the country demographically young.
10. The most obvious sector which can embody the contribution of immigrants should be ________.
A)        human capital sector
B)        sector which can create employment opportunities
C)        medicine and computer science
D)        high-tech sector

Section B Short Answer Questions
Directions: In this section, you will read a passage. After the passage there are 5 questions. Answer these 5 questions in the fewest possible words.
Passage Three
Questions are based on the following passage.
There are advantages of a natural language being a lingua franca.
First, the natural way of forming a lingua franca is that a natural language gets more and more widely used as the result of trade or political power. At various times and places in the history, Latin, Greek, Sanskrit, Arabic, Mandarin, Chinook and Swahili enabled people who were not native speakers of those languages to communicate with speakers of another language altogether. They are lingua franca to some extent, but never is a language used so dominantly by so many people in so many countries as English is used today, while an artificial language, such as Esperanto, is never influential enough to be used as the sole official language in any organization. It’s unlikely for a government to adopt an artificial language as an official language. Therefore, it is more natural for a natural language to develop into a lingua franca.
Second, there has been a great pool of knowledge in or translated into a natural language, such as English, which is a clear advantage for a natural language being the lingua franca. If we adopt a brand new artificial language, everyone in the world need to learn it, and almost everything concerned with international communication need to be translated, which seems quite implausible.
Third, natural language is well developed and can be used to express nearly every thing, while an artificial language is not naturally formed, but invented by a person or a group, thus inevitably has some flaws. What’s more, language is the carrier of culture, and the spread of language will be accompanied by the spread of its culture. There is something that can’t be expressed in another language about a specific culture. People need to learn this language in order to understand its culture. However, an artificial language does not carry a specific culture with it, so it has limitations in representing a culture and it is unlikely and not possible to express every idea in a specific culture. English has a few points in its favor. It is expressive, having more words than any other language, but of course this means you have more words to learn. English grammar is fairly simple compared to other European languages, and it is also a highly idiomatic and metaphorical language.
Questions
11. Why is it a bad idea for an artificial language to become a lingua franca?
12. An artificial language always has some defects because_____________.  
13. The relation between culture and language is that the spread of language will be accompanied by the spread of its culture and _____________.
14. The reason that an artificial language has limitations in representing a culture is ____________________________.
15. Why is English a more possible lingua franca than other languages?

Passage Four
Questions are based on the following passage.
  Whenever the terms Buddhism and Taoism are mentioned, one tends to invoke the vision of temples, idol worships, incense sticks, fortune telling etc.. Unfortunately, like many other systems of philosophy and religion that had deviated from their origins; corrupted by clerics and usurped by religious leader for purposes of their own; Buddhism and Taoism started not as a religion, but rather, as a philosophy.
   Contrary to the superstitious versions of Buddhism and Taoism that come with a multitudes of gods, the original Buddhist and Taoist philosophy considered the concept of god as irrelevant.
     In Buddhism, the ultimate goal is to reach a state free from earthly pains and sorrows. This state could be attainable by following certain ways of getting rid of earthly attachments and desires. Buddhist believed in that anxiety is a result of desire. By getting rid of your desires, you release yourself form all anxieties. “Buddha” is not a god but a “state of being” to strive for.
    The central idea in Taoism is the harmony of nature and the need for man to be part of that harmony. Everything we know is encompassed in nature. The universe, and all things in it, run according to the “Tao” . The concept of a rewarding and punishing god is considered to be ludicrous.
   Many religions have God as the creator of the universe and left it at that. Everything is assumed to be concrete. There is no discussion about space, time, reality , perception etc.. These religions are more concerned with how men and women should behave in order to please god and how god must be glorified and worshiped. In other words, men and women are created so that there is some one around to glorify the work of god. They strongly believe that if there is a god that have the ability to create all the universe and the wonders in it, he/she would be beyond this pettiness of needing someone to constantly chanting about how great he/she is.
   In Buddhism and Taoism, there is a considerable part of their doctrine devoted to the search for an understanding of the concepts of space, time, real reality and perceived reality.
    In Quantum Mechanics we talk about a measured quantity as being the result of an interaction between the measuring instrument and the quantum states of a system. The true quantum state cannot be measured without having the state being altered.  In Buddhism, the world of our perceptions is the result of the interaction between our senses and the true world. The reality we perceive is but a distorted image of the true world; a construction of our sensory perception. Of course, this idea is not unique. Plato talked about the shadows in the caves and Immanual Kant talked about noumenal (本体的) and phenomenal world.
True or False
16. Buddhism and Taoism were originally more of a religion than of a philosophy.
17. Buddhism advocates that man shouldn’t have any desire.
18. Many religions in the world, including Taoism, believe that man is a part of nature.
19. The uniqueness of Buddhism and Taoism is that they include concepts of space, time, real reality and perceived reality in their doctrine.
20. Buddhism and Quantum Mechanics are similar to each other in that the reality we perceive is distorted.
