B. True or False(判断下列句子是否符合短文内容,符合的用“T”表示,不符合的用“F”表示): ( 6)

 

I am an e-mail user. When I first started to use the e-mail system I used to read all my e-mail. I didn't have much mail. I was very excited about receiving any e-mail. I gave my friends my e-mail address. Soon I had more mail than I wanted. Some of the mail was junk mail (垃圾邮件). I was worried. I didn't want my mail to control me.

I've tried some methods to help me get control of my mail. First, I check my mail at the same time every day. Also I try to allow myself only 15-20 minutes every day to process my e-mail. This doesn't always work, but I try. Sometimes I save the messages. Sometimes I just read them, maybe answer a few, and then delete them.

Sometimes I'm not at all interested in a message, so I don't even open it. I delete it right away. This is very much the way I go through the mail that the postal service delivers to my home.

These methods are very simple. I have some friends who are very clever with computers. From time to time, they teach me new tricks for managing my e-mail. I've also learned to transfer (转存) some messages to a disk so they don't fill up my mail files (文件夹). Then I can read them later and maybe use them in my work. I'm still amazed at what e-mail can do for me! I'm still worried, however, about having too much to read.  

 

78. The writer used to read all his e-mail because he didn't have much mail. 

79. After giving his friends his e-mail address the writer had more mail than he wanted.

80. Sometimes the writer checks his mail in the morning and sometimes in the evening.   

81. The writer always spends less than 15 minutes processing his e-mail.  

82. Sometimes the writer doesn't open the mail because he is not at all interested in it.  

83. The writer teaches his friends how to manage their e-mail.  

 

C. Choose the best answer(根据短文内容,选择最恰当的答案): ( 6)

 

The tradition of birthday parties started a long time ago. There are some traditions that you can find almost anywhere, anytime, such as sending birthday cards, blowing out the candles on a birthday cake and singing the 'Happy Birthday' song. Others are only found for certain ages and in certain countries.

In China, on a child's second birthday, family members put many things on the floor around the child. According to Chinese tradition, the first thing that the child picks up tells you what profession the child will choose later in life.

For Japanese children, the third, fifth and seventh birthdays are especially important. At this age, there is a special celebration Shichi-Go-San (seven, five, three in Japanese) when children go to the temple wearing a new kimono (和服). The priest (僧侣) gives them special sweets, and the parents usually organize a party for their friends in their home.

In Argentina, Mexico and several other Latin American countries, girls have a special birthday celebration when they reach the age of fifteen. After a special ceremony (仪式), the girls dance a waltz with their father and other boys.

Eighteen is the traditional 'coming of age'— the age when (in many countries) you have the right to vote (选举), join the army and (in Britain) drink alcohol or buy a house.

In many English-speaking countries, a twenty-first birthday cake often has a key on top, or the cake itself is sometimes in the shape of a key. The key means that the young person is now old enough to leave and enter the family home at any time they want to!

Do you have bright ideas? Ideas for inventions that change the world or, at least, make life easier for somebody? P 97    we all do sometimes, but we don't often make the idea a real thing. Recently, there was a competition in a country, which encouraged young people to make their bright ideas come true. There were t 98    groups in the contest: Group A was for school children under 16; Group B was for those o 99   16. And there were eleven prize-winners altogether.

Neil Hunt, one of the prize-winners, was c 100    "Sunshine Superman" by one newspaper writing about his design. When people study the weather, it's important to be able to record the sunshine accurately. We need to know how many h 101    of sunshine we have and how strong it is. Most sunshine recorders o 102    record direct (直接的) sunshine. Neil's is more accurate and this is very important for research into ways of using solar power. Neil plans to keep inventing.

The ideas in the competition were so g 103    that we are surprised that the industry (工业界) doesn't ask more school children for suggestions.     

 

F. Answer the questions(根据短文内容回答下列问题): ( 12)

 

English is an important international language, but that doesn't mean it's easy to learn. Many experts have tried to make English easier to learn — but they weren't always successful.

In 1930, Professor C.K. Ogden of Cambridge University invented Basic English. It had only 850 words (and just eighteen verbs) and Ogden said most people could learn it in just thirty hours. The problem was that people who learned Basic English could write and say simple messages, but they couldn't understand the answers in 'real' English! It was also impossible to explain a word if it wasn't in the Basic English word list.

R.E. Zachrisson, a university professor in Sweden, decided that the biggest problem for learners of English was spelling, so he invented a language with the name Anglic. Anglic was similar to English, but with much simpler spelling. 'Father' became 'faadher', 'new' became 'nue' and 'years' became 'yeerz'. Unluckily, Anglic never became popular.

In the age of international communication through the Internet, who knows what will happen? ... a new form of English might appear. A large number of the world's e-mails are in English and include (包括) examples of 'NetLingo' like OIC (Oh, I see) and TTYL (Talk to you later). In another fifty years, English might not be used. We might all speak fluent Internetish! 

 

104. Many experts have tried to make English easier to learn, haven't they?

105. Who invented Basic English in 1930?

106. How long could most people learn Basic English according to Professor Ogden?

107.What was the biggest problem for learners of English according to Professor Zachrisson?

108. What might happen to English in another fifty years?

109. What do you think of the experts' ideas of making English easier?
