But in Arab(阿拉伯) countries you must be very careful with your hands. You 18 eat with your left hand. Arabs consider it very 19 manners eating with left hands.

Passage One

Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.

Modern life is impossible without traveling. The fastest way of traveling is by plane. With a modern airliner, you can travel in one day to places which needed a month or more to get to hundreds of years ago.

Traveling by train is slower than by plane, but you can see the places you are traveling through. Modern trains have comfortable seats and dining-cars. They even make the longest journey enjoyable.

Some people prefer to travel by sea. You can visit many other countries or different parts of your country. Ships are not so fast as trains or planes, but traveling by sea is a very pleasant way to spend a holiday.

Many people like to travel by car. You can make your own timetable. You can travel three or four hundred miles or only fifty or one hundred miles a day, just as you like. You can stop if there is something interesting, for example, at a good restaurant where you can enjoy a good meal, or at a hotel to spend the night. That’s why traveling by car is popular for pleasure trips, while people usually take a train or a plane when they travel on business.

Passage Two

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage

With technological advances,the first half of the twentieth century saw a

movement of workers away from agricultural to industrial production.The second half saw a movement from industrial production to services.So far,technological advances have not reduced Our need for service workers.But what would happen if advances in artificial intelligence(AI) fall should greatly increase the productivity of service workers,as suggested by the following scene?

Andrea calls the doctor’s office with a medical concern.The doctor’s

automated telephone system,in a friendly and personal voice,asks her a series of

questions.Based on Andrea’s answers and in consultation with her insurer’s

claim system,the doctor’s system directs her to a neighborhood lab for tests.At

the lab,another automated system performs the prescribed tests,makes a diagnosis,and provides the appropriate medication,all while in contact with Andrea’s insurer.As the service is completed,the insurer pays the cost of the service.Andrea signs for any co-payment,to be paid automatically from her bank account.Heading home,Andrea was happily spared from long waits and a hurried contact with the doctor.

To anticipate the realization of such a scene and its timing,we should watch the industries with the most potential for early application of AI. These would be where services are already provided at a distance (airline reservations were all

early example).Once widespread in these industries,Al will have built the necessary level of trust and acceptance to move into more and more service


The critical issue now is that such changes could lead to considerable reduction in service jobs at a time when people will want to (or need to) work longer.Services in the first half of the twenty—first century might thus resemble manufacturing in the second half of the twentieth century, with considerable unemployment and significant incentives(诱因)for early retirement.If we are to minimize the panic.we need first to see it coming.

26. It is possible that in the future ____.

A.Al will limit industrial production

B.service industries will be out of business

C.Al will create more jobs for human workers

D. the need for workers will be reduced

27.The main aim of the second paragraph IS to show that____.

A.Al will make services more efficient

B.more humans are available for services

C.medical payment involves a complex process

D.several doctors are needed in a medical diagnosis

28.Airline reservations are an early example of ____.

A.AI application

B.a face-to-face service

C. the prevalence of flights

D.AI reliance on humans

29.It is implied in the last paragraph that in the second half of 20th century____.

A.a lot of employees refused to do more work

B.a large number of employees lost their jobs

C.numerous workers were forced to retire earlier

D.many workers were encouraged to work longer

30.The author’s attitude toward the future of AI is ____.


B. negative



Passage There

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage

Many a young person tells me that he wants to be a writer. I always encourage such people, but I explain that there’s a big difference between “being a writer” and writing. In most cases these individuals are dreaming of wealth and fame, not the long hours at a typewriter. “You’ve got to want to write,” I say to them, “not want to be a writer.”

The reality is that writing is a lonely, private and poor―paying affair. For every writer kissed by fortune there are thousands more whose longing is never rewarded. When I left a 20-year career in the U.S.Cuard to become a freelance writer. I had no prospects at all. What I did have was a friend who found me my room in a New York apartment building. It didn’t even matter that it was cold and had no bathroom. I immediately bought a used manual typewriter and felt like a genuine writer.

After a year or so, however, I still hadn’t gotten a break and began to doubt myself. It was so hard to sell a story that barely made enough to be one of those people who die wondering. What if? I would keep putting my dream to the test-even though it meant living with uncertainty and fear of failure. This is the Shadowland of hope, and anyone with a dream must learn to live there.

31. The passage is meant to ________

A. warn young people of the hardships that a successful writer has to experience

B. advise young people to give up their idea of becoming a professional writer

C. show young people it’s unrealistic for a writer to persure wealth and fame

D. encourage young people to persue a writing career

32. What can be concluded from the passage?

A.Genuine writer often find their work interesting and rewarding.

B.A writer’s success depends on luck rather than on effort.

C.Famous writer usually live in poverty and isolation.

D.The chances for a writer to become successful are small

33. Why did the author begin to doubt himself after the first year of his writing career?

A.He wasn’t able to produce a single book.

B.He hadn’t seen a change for the better.

C.He wasn’t able to have a rest for a whole year.

D.He found his dream would never come true.

34. “…people who die wondering, What if?”(Line2,Para3) refers to “those ______”

A.who think too much of the dark side of life

B.who regret giving up their career halfway

C.who think a lot without making a decision

D.who are full of imagination even upon death

35. “Shadowland” in the last sentence refers to ________

A.the wonderland one often dreams about

B.the bright future that one is looking forward to

C.the state of uncertainty before one’s final goal is reached

Ⅶ. Translation from English into Chinese (15 points)


Everyone agrees that children’s language learning begins with listening.

However, individual children vary greatly in the amount of listening they do

before they start speaking,and late starters are often long listeners.Most children

will ‘obey’ spoken instructions some time before they call speak.Before they can

speak,many children also ask questions by gestures and noises.It is agreed that

they enjoy making noises,and that during the first few months one or two noises

are considered as a particular indication of delight,distress,sociability ,and so on.But since three noises cannot be said to show the baby’s intention to communicate, they call hardly be regarded as early forms of language.It is agreed,too,that from about three months they play with sounds for enjoyment,and by six months they are able to add new sounds to their ‘speech’.This self-imitation leads on to intentional imitation of sounds made or words spoken to them by other people.

Can these imitations be considered as speech?
