  ?  There are FIVE sections in this part.

  Mark ALL your answers by blackening the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet, e.g.[A].

  Section A    Questions 1—5 are based on this section. (10 points)

  Directions: Read the following passage and choose the best answer from A, B, C and D. Blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.

  Every country tends to accept its own way of life as being the normal one and to praise or criticize others as they are similar to or different from it. And unfortunately, our picture of the people and the way of life of other countries is often a distorted one.

  Here is a great argument in favor of foreign travel and learning foreign languages. It is only by traveling in, or living in a country and getting to know its local people and their language that one can find out what a country and its people are really like. And how different the knowledge one gains this way frequently turns out to be from the second-hand information gathered from other sources! How often we find that the foreigners whom we thought to be such different people from ourselves are not very different after all!

  Differences between peoples do, of course, exist and, one hopes, will always continue to do so. The world will be a dull place indeed when all the different nationalities behave exactly alike, and some people might say that we are rapidly approaching this state of affairs. With the much greater rapidity and ease of travel, there might seem to be some truth in this at least as far as Europe is concerned. The greater ease of travel today has revealed to more people than ever before that the Englishman or Frenchman or German is not different from themselves.

  1. Every country criticizes ways of life in other countries because they are ______.

  A.  different from its own

  B.  normal

  C.  distorted

  D.  similar to its own

  2. One who travels in a foreign country and learns its language will______.

  A. find out what its people are exactly like

  B. know the country and its people better

  C. argue in favor of this country and the language

  D. like its local people and their language

  3. The knowledge one gains by traveling in a foreign country is often______.

  A. different from what he had before the travel

  B. gathered from other sources than from its local people

  C. gained from the arguments about the country

  D. from second-hand information

  4. Differences between people______.

  A. will gradually disappear because of the ease of travel

  B. will not exist as one hopes

  C. do exist and it is a good thing

  D. will always continue to exist and the world will be a dull place

  5. “With the much greater rapidity and ease of travel” in the last paragraph most probably means ___________.

  A.   As travel becomes more difficult

  B.   As travel becomes more exciting

  C.   As travel becomes more tiring

  D.   As travel becomes easier and faster

  Section B    Questions 6—10 are based on this section. (10 points)

  Directions: Read the following passage and choose the best answer from A, B, C and D. Blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.

  For many international students, coming to the United States and living here and studying can be quite a difficult experience, especially when finding housing on campus or off campus. And fortunately, there are a variety of options that students can look to. And I’d like to talk just briefly a little about on-campus living, off-campus living, and some of the advantages and disadvantages of each.

  Well I think first of all for first-time students, living on campus is a better choice. It can provide a certain level of security because it is close to campus facilities. Another advantage is that it’s convenient since commuting without a car can be quite an experience, especially when you have to commute long distances. Often in dormitories, meals might be provided, and this can allow students to devote time to their study, rather than housekeeping. But students should also be aware that they’ll be required to follow certain regulations dealing with student conduct.

  Another option is off campus living in apartments. And like living in dormitories, living in an apartment requires little or no effort in housekeeping because usually it is handled by someone else. Also when you live off campus, there might be a certain amount of flexibility in choosing roommates that you might not have, uh, living on campus. But you should be aware that those who rent the apartment may be responsible for furnishing their own apartments.

  Well, of course, the choice is up to you, but be careful to review both the advantages and disadvantages of living on campus and off campus. If you have other problems, you are welcome to my office on the fourth floor of the office building, and you can set up an appointment to meet with me as well. Good luck.

  6. According to the talk, for many international students, ________.

  A. it is easy to come to the U.S

  B. it is easy to find a place to study in

  C. it is difficult to care for themselves

  D. it is difficult to find a place to live in

  7. Which of the following is NOT the advantage of living on campus mentioned in the talk?

  A. It saves time.

  B. It has better living conditions.

  C. It is convenient.

  D. It is close to campus facilities.

  8. We can learn from the talk that first-time students ________.

  A. are recommended to live on campus

  B. can only live on campus

  C. are recommended to live off campus

  D. can only live off campus

  9. What is the advantage of living off campus?

  A. The students can cook their own meals.

  B. The students can choose their roommates.

  C. The students can choose furniture for the apartment.

  D. The students can learn more about the local culture.

  10. The speaker is probably ________.

  A. an international student

  B. a real estate agent

  C. a member of university staff

  D. a social worker

  Section C    Questions 11—15 are based on this section. (10 points)

  Directions: Read the following passage and choose the best answer from A, B, C and D. Blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.

  The ancient Chinese poet Tao Yuanming of the Eastern Jin Dynasty (AD 317—420) once described in his work a legendary fairyland “Peach Blossom Valley”, which is said to be a place completely isolated from the rest of the world. People there lived a simple, pastoral life.

  Does such a fairyland really exist in the real world? For centuries, Chinese people merely regarded this valley as an imaginary place. It never occurred to anyone that it might be found in the map. Our trip to Bamei Village located in a typical karst area led us to an unexpected answer to the question. After driving for 40 kilometers north from a small county, we finally stopped in front of a cave where there was a stream called Bamei River flowing. Under the guidance of local villagers, we continued our journey into the cave by boat.

  Just like entering a movie theatre, we were soon immersed in utter darkness as the boat drifted into the cave.  A narrow shaft of sunlight streamed through a small opening in the cave roof, giving the water an unearthly quality. Astounded by the mystic cave, we all fell silent and could hear only the sound of dripping, rippling water.

  Suddenly the boat made a sharp turn, bringing us to the exit of the cave. To our surprise, our destination – Bamei Village, was right there before our eyes. It seems we were stepping into a fictitious land of peace, away from the turmoil of the world. In the Bamei River were reflections of mountains covered with trees. The village is sheltered by great amphitheatres of mountains. It is a village without roads. The river has been the only access in and out of the village. Due to inconvenient location and hard transit, the villagers escaped attacks by the outsiders and the influences of the modern world, staying as unadorned and as pure as they always were.

  Without cars, electricity, telephone and television, the villagers still lived a primitive, self-sufficient living – fishing, hunting and farming. Also they have preserved the traditional culture and customs. They sing songs at their most important events, which is their way of interacting with others and expressing their feelings.

  When night falls, villagers light their oil lamps. Bonfires are built to welcome tourists and party thrown. As the local children run about in the glow of the flames, one cannot wonder if this fairyland, once hidden but now on the map, may soon lose its innocence and become another cultureless, contrived tourist attraction.

  11. “Peach Blossom Valley” is ______.

  A.     a place completely isolated from the rest of the world

  B.     a legendary fairyland described by an ancient Chinese poet

  C.     a place where people live a simple, pastoral life

  D.     Bamei Village described by the author

  A.     inside a big cave

  B.     40 kilometers north from a small county

  D.     located in a typical karst area

  13. The only way to get into and out of the Bamei Village is _____.

  A.     by boat

  B.     on foot

  C.     across the rippling water

  D.     through a small opening in the cave roof

  14. All of the following descriptions about the people in Bamei Village are true EXCEPT that _____.

  A.     they escaped attacks by the outsiders and the influence of the modern world

  B.     they lived a primitive, self-sufficient living – fishing, hunting and farming

  C.     they  built roads to welcome tourists

  D.     they preserved the traditional culture and customs

  15. Obviously, the author thinks it is ______ for Bamei Village to be known as a tourist attraction.

  A. wonderful

  B. something to worry about

  C. important

  D. something to feel cheerful

  Section D    Questions 16—20 are based on this section. (10 points)

  Directions: Read the following passage and choose the best answer from A, B, C and D. Blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.

  Fatigue is one of the most common complaints brought to doctors, friends and relatives. You’d think in this era of labor-saving devices and convenient transportation that few people would have reason to be so tired. But probably more people complain of fatigue today than in the days when hay was baled by hand and laundry scrubbed on a washboard. Today, physicians report, tiredness is more likely a consequence of underexertion than of wearing yourself down with overactivity. There are three main categories of fatigue:

  Physical. This is the well-known result of overworking your muscles to the point where metabolic waste products - carbon dioxide and lactic acid - accumulate in your blood and sap your strength. Your muscles can’t continue to work efficiently in a bath of these chemicals. Physical fatigue is usually a pleasant tiredness, such as that which you might experience after playing a hard set of tennis, chopping wood, or climbing a mountain. The cure is simple and fast: You rest, giving your body a chance to get rid of accumulated wastes and restore muscle fuel.

  Pathological. Here fatigue is a warning sign or consequence of some underlying physical disorder, perhaps the common cold or flu or something more serious like diabetes or cancer. Usually other symptoms besides fatigue are present that suggest the true cause.

  Even after an illness has passed, you’re likely to feel dragged out for a week or more. Take your fatigue as a signal to go slow while your body has a chance to recover fully even if all you had was a cold. Pushing yourself to resume full activity too soon could precipitate a relapse and almost certainly will prolong your period of fatigue.

  Even though illness is not a frequent cause of prolonged fatigue, it is very important that it not be overlooked. Therefore, anyone who feels drained of energy for weeks on end should have a thorough physical checkup. But even if nothing shows up as a result of the various medical tests, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing wrong with you.

  Psychological. Emotional problems and conflicts, especially depression and anxiety, are by far the most common causes of prolonged fatigue. Fatigue may represent a defense mechanism that prevents you from having to face the true cause of your depression, such as the fact that you hate your job. It is also your body’s safety valve for expressing repressed emotional conflicts, such as feeling trapped in an ungratifying role or an unhappy marriage. When such feelings are not expressed openly, they often come out as physical symptoms, with fatigue as the most common manifestations.

  Emotionally induced fatigue may be compounded by sleep disturbance that result from the underlying psychological conflict. A person may develop insomnia or may sleep the requisite number of hours but fitfully, tossing and turning all night, having disturbing dreams, and awakening, as one woman put it, feeling as if she “ had been run over by a truck”.

  Understanding the underlying emotional problem is the crucial first step toward curing psychological fatigue and by itself often result in considerable lessening of the tiredness. Professional psychological help or career or marriage counseling may be needed.

  16. According to the text, in this era of labor-saving devices and convenient transportation, _____.

  A. people still feel tired and more people complain of fatigue

  B. more people wear themselves down with overactivity

  C. fatigue is no longer a common complaint brought to doctor

  D. people still do heavy physical and manual work

  17.  A pleasant physical tiredness is caused by ______.

  A. wasting carbon dioxide and lactic acid

  B. metabolic waste products called carbon dioxide and lactic acid

  C. a great number of metabolic waste products heaped up in the blood

  D. a great number of chemists heaped up inside the body

  18.  Prolonged fatigue ______.

  A. is a common cause of illness

  B. could go slow as a signal

  C. should be taken good care of

  D. should not be ignored

  19. Prolonged fatigue ______.

  A. may provide you with a psychological structure to face your depression

  B. may be a way to give out unhappy feelings to safeguard your physical conditions

  C. is the only common manifestation of an unhappy marriage

  D. is the only common manifestation of being in an ungratifying role

  20. To deal with the psychological fatigue, one has to _____.

  A. understand defense mechanism that prevents him from having to face the true cause of his depression

  B. sleep the requisite number of hours but fitfully having disturbing dreams at night

  C. express his feelings openly which has been compounded by emotionally induced fatigue

  D. understand the underlying emotional problem which leads to his psychological fatigue
