Communicating successfully with people from other cultures can be a real 6.. We 7. the responsibility for learning their culture. Adjusting to another culture requires a great deal of personal awareness and 8.. I know several foreigners living with a fork in their pocket. I could understand if they said they were unwilling to 9. their time to learning the language—Chinese is very difficult. If you are working full-time, you may not have enough time to make much 10. in Chinese, but what about chopsticks? 11.! Learning how to use chopsticks is the easiest part of the 12.. Learning how to conduct yourself in a 13. way during social interactions is what should have been done.

Part 4 Reading Comprehension (Multiple Choice)

Questions 1 to 5 are based on the same passage or dialog.

Charlie Chaplin has broken all records in making people laugh. No one has so set a whole world laughing as the little man with the walking stick and the oversized shoes.

Much has been written about Chaplin's art and his career, and opinions have ranged widely. But perhaps those who called him "the truest human being of our time" came closest to the truth. Those who have called him a genius stress the timeless and common qualities in his work. It is an art filled with sad elements and deep human feeling, with which an audience cannot help but become involved. It is for these reasons, I believe, that the figure of Charlie has attracted generation after generation.

All the writers who give accounts of Chaplin's life agree that Charlie's unhappy early years in the area in London where houses were dirty and worn had a great influence on his development and on the type of films he made. Chaplin himself emphasizes it in his memoirs (回忆录). The more one reads about his earliest period, the more one tends to agree. Indeed, his suffering youth had a lasting influence on him.

Chaplin was never afraid to deal with subjects causing much disagreement in his films. He gave a humorous performance on war only a few weeks before the American soldiers came home from World War I in 1918. This was regarded as madness, but the performance was well received. So perfectly did it hit the nail on the head that even the returning soldiers found it impossible to hate it and deeply appreciated this short and humorous performance on what for them had been an unpleasant reality. Chaplin gave numerous performances attacking capital governments, satirizing (讽刺) the cruelty of the machine age, and even making fun of Hitler.

Years after his death, the funny films of motion picture actor and director Charlie Chaplin continue to be well loved. He is particularly well known for his success as a creator of humorous presentations that make fun of people, the establishment, or networks.

1.All of the following about Charlie Chaplin are true except _______________.

A. he was born in the USA

B. he was a great film actor

C. he had an unhappy early life

D. he made fun of Hitler in one of his films

2.According to the author, Charlie Chaplin has been well loved by generation after generation because ______________.

A. he set the whole world laughing

B. his performances get people involved

C. his works appeal to people in different periods

D. both B and C

3.According to the writers of Charlie Chaplin's life history, ____________ had a strong influence on the type of films he made.

A. the society in which he lived

B. the audience who praised and admired him

C. his unhappy early years in the poor area in London

D. those who called him a genius

4.According to the passage, which of the following is true?

A. There are timeless qualities in Chaplin's work because he didn't involve himself in political affairs.

B. Chaplin became well loved years after his death.

C. Chaplin's performance is funny without any sad elements.

D. Chaplin's films are the combinations of funny and sad elements.

5.This passage was ____________.

A. written by Charlie Chaplin

B. written about Charlie Chaplin

C. advertising one of Charlie Chaplin's films

D. written for students to learn film-making

Questions 6 to 10 are based on the same passage or dialog.

Although Beethoven could sit down and compose easily, his really great compositions did not come easily at all. They cost him a great deal of hard work and he always found it hard to satisfy himself.

When he was 28, he began to notice a strange noise in his ears. As it grew worse, he went to see doctors, and was told that he was going deaf. This was too much for any composer to bear. Beethoven was without hope; he was sure that he was going to die. He went to the countryside where he wrote a long good-bye letter to his brothers, describing how sad and lonely his deafness made him. He longed to

die, and said to death, "Come when you will; I shall meet you bravely."

In fact, Beethoven did something braver than dying. He gathered his courage and went on writing music, though he could hear what he wrote more and more faintly. He wrote the music for which we remember him best after he became deaf. This music was very different from any that had been composed before. Instead of the artistic and beautiful music that earlier composers had written for their rich listeners, Beethoven wrote stormy, exciting music which reminds us of his troubled and courageous (勇敢的) life. His Heroic (英雄的) Symphony (交响乐) and Fifth Symphony both show his courage in struggling with his fate.

In time he went completely deaf, but he wrote more creatively than ever, for he could "hear" his music in his mind. He was lonely and often unhappy but in spite of this, he often wrote joyful music, such as his last symphony, the Ninth. Because of his courage and strong will to triumph, his music has given joy and encouragement to millions of people.

6.How did Beethoven's deafness affect him?

A. It killed him.

B. It stopped his writing music.

C. It drove him mad.

D. It helped him create great music.

7.Which of the following music works written by Beethoven was joyful?

A. No. 9 Symphony.

B. No. 7 Symphony.

C. No. 5 Symphony.

D. No. 3 Symphony.

8.Beethoven longed to die because _______________.

A. he had told death he would meet it bravely

B. he felt his deafness was too much for him to bear as a composer

C. he wouldn't be able to write music for rich listeners after becoming deaf

D. he wouldn't be able to support his family

9.Which of the following is the best title for this passage?

A. Music and Symphony

B. Hard to Satisfy

C. The Music of Fate

D. Deafness in Music.

10.According to the passage, which of the following is true?

A. When he was partly deaf, Beethoven's music became more and more gentle.

B. His music became more and more artistic although he was deaf.

C. He wrote fainter and fainter music after he went deaf.

D. He composed exciting and encouraging music that reflected his struggle with his fate.

Questions 11 to 15 are based on the same passage or dialog.

Polygamy is a funny thing―funny ha ha, as well as peculiar. One thinks of the 19th-century Mormon leader, Brigham Young, with his 55 wives (in those days, they said, women married Young). Devout (虔敬的) Mormons hold that a message from God told Young to go ahead and start collecting wives. Skeptics (怀疑者), of course, say that there was something else to this. In any case, it proved to be an efficient means of enabling Mormons to outnumber skeptics. And in fairness, some of his wives were elderly women whom he married out of kindness and not because he was attracted to them.

I find it very curious that Western countries, despite how much they pride themselves for their liberalism (人文自由主义) about what willing adults do with one another, have been slow to permit willing adults to marry each other at a rate more than one at a time.

What business is it of the states how many people I marry? And by the way, if one can enter into a common law marriage by living with someone for seven years, can one enter into a common law polygamy by living with two? I'd love to see that test case.

But what would it really be like to have multiple spouses? Most men I've asked answer immediately with a knowing smile. And those are the intelligent ones. Their minds immediately create an image something like a sexual (性的) version (看法) of a Hong Kong Sunday lunch, with many dishes to taste.

In truth, the idea scares me. I spend half my waking hours trying to deal with my childish consciousness to the civilized state known as marriage. It's only by total luck I can hold on to any of my natural

state-of-nature qualities—watching violent movies, eating bad food, and acting poorly, the way that men can act poorly when free from the control of women. What if I were outnumbered?

Then there's the spectre (幻影,魔鬼) of a double settlement (解决) if the woman leaves. Modern marriage might be a raw deal for women, but it can be hell (地狱) on men when women leave. Little wonder that men, who write the laws, discourage polygamy. But then again, Mark Twain might have been right; maybe it was just the mother-in-law jokes.

11.What does the word "polygamy" most probably mean in the first sentence?

A. Funny stories.

B. Interesting events.

C. Having more than one wife at the same time.

D. Organizing a social act.

12.According to the passage, which one of the following statements is true?

A. In the 19th century, polygamy was considered a regular practice.

B. Young's wives were all very beautiful and attractive.

C. Polygamy began in the 1800s.

D. Some people think that polygamy is a good idea.

13.The author thinks that the government ______________.

A. should stop polygamy and promote monogamy (一夫一妻制)

B. should not stop polygamy while promoting monogamy

C. should establish laws against polygamy

D. should stop both monogamy and polygamy

14.Which one of the following statements is true according to the passage?

A. Most men welcome the idea of polygamy out of curiosity.

B. Most men like to have more than one wife for sexual purposes.

C. Most women do not like the idea of polygamy.

D. The author thinks that polygamy is needed for the modern world.

15.What does the phrase "a raw deal" mean in the last paragraph?

A. A new experience.

B. An unfair treatment.

C. An activity which is not agreed on.

D. A heavy blow.

Questions 16 to 20 are based on the same passage or dialog.

Culture shock might be called an expected disease of people who have suddenly moved to some foreign countries. Like most diseases, it has its own symptoms and cure.

Culture shock is started by the anxiety that results from losing all our familiar signs and sights of social activities. Those signs or cues (提示) include the thousand and one ways in which we find our place in the situation of daily life: when to shake hands and what to say when we meet people, when and how to give tips, how to make purchases, when to accept and when to refuse invitations, when to take statements seriously and when not. These cues, which may be words, gestures, expressions with the face, customs, or norms, are acquired by all of us in the course of growing up and are as much a part of our culture as the language we speak or the beliefs we accept. All of us depend for our peace of mind and our efficiency on hundreds of these cues, most of which we do not carry on the level of conscious awareness.

Now when an individual enters a strange culture, all or most of these familiar cues are removed. He or she is like a fish out of water. No matter how broad-minded or full of goodwill you may be, a number of supports have been knocked out from under you followed by a feeling of frustration and anxiety. People respond to the frustration in much the same way. First they reject the environment which causes the discomfort. "The ways of the host country are bad because they make me feel bad." When foreigners in a strange land get together to complain about the host country and its people, you can be sure they are suffering from culture shock. Another stage of culture shock is regression. The home country suddenly assumes a great importance. To the foreigner everything becomes much greater than it really is. All the difficulties and problems are forgotten and only the good things back home are remembered. It usually takes a trip home to bring one back to reality.

16.According to the passage, culture shock is _________________.

A. an expected disease of foreign people

B. may lead to very serious symptoms

C. actually not a disease

D. something that can't be changed

17.According to the passage, culture shock results from ________________.

A. the sudden loss of our own signs and sights of social activities

B. the sudden change of our daily habits

C. the sudden change of the social situation and customs

D. the discomfort that we feel when faced with a foreigner

18.Which one of the following may NOT be the symptoms of culture shock?

A. You don't know how to express your thanks.

B. You don't know how to greet other people.

C. You suddenly forget what a word means.

D. You don't understand why a foreigner acts in a certain way.

19.How would a person who stays abroad most probably act when he is frustrated by the culture shock according to the passage?

A. He is most likely to refuse to absorb the strange environment at first.

B. He may begin to hate the people or things around him.

C. He is ready to accept the change and change himself to the new environment.

D. Although he takes the cultural differences to be regular, he still doesn't know what to do with them.

20.This passage is most likely taken from ______________.

A. a news report

B. a grammar book

C. a book on medicine and psychology

D. an essay on human customs

Questions 21 to 25 are based on the same passage or dialog.

I used to go to Starbucks (星巴克) for their coffee, but that’s changed since I discovered their comforting, tasty teas, which are better than coffee any time. Tea is cool even when it’s hot. People drink more tea than any other drink in the world, except for water.

Whether it’s served hot or cold, natural and flavored teas are drinks that have been consumed (消费) for centuries. Everywhere you look, you’ll find various kinds of teas―in restaurants, grocery stores, television advertisements, and gift shops.

Why is there all this excitement about tea? What’s its attraction? Well, there are many possibilities for why more and more people are drinking tea. One possibility is that people are coming to notice the benefits of drinking tea, particularly green tea. Studies show that drinking four cups of green tea a day can reduce the risk of developing various types of cancer, as well as heart disease. The key to tea’s effects of cure seems to lie in chemicals found in tea which prevent a process that leads to the growth of cancers. Green tea may also prevent skin cancer. It has also been linked with helping the body to rid itself of harmful materials, and green tea is thought to possibly protect against colds and Parkinson’s (帕金森) disease.

Another explanation for why people are drinking more tea may be due to the comforting process of just

making a cup of tea. The time it takes to prepare tea leaves in hot water and enjoy its gentle flavor forces drinkers to slow down and relax a while, making it the perfect way to improve a world where people are so crazy about cappuccino(热牛奶咖啡), a hot coffee with milk in it.

So, whether you drink tea, eat it in foods, wear it to smell good, or take it in pills, one thing is certain, the use of tea is more than a trend―it is a habit o f our past and if studies prove the benefit of its use, it will undoubtedly be an important element of our future.

21.Nowadays, among all the drinks in the world, tea is __________.

A. the most widely consumed drink

B. as widespread as coffee

C. even more widely consumed than water

D. the second most widely consumed drink

22.The passage does not mention __________ as a possible benefit of drinking tea.

A. preventing skin cancer

B. helping the body to rid itself of harmful material

C. curing Parkinson's disease

D. reducing the risk of developing cancer

23.It is good to drink tea because the time it takes to prepare a cup of tea _________.

A. allows the tea leaves to absorb enough water

B. enables drinkers to relax

C. is suitable for people to get some news

D. can improve the quality of cappuccino

24.The writer suggests that in the future people will probably ___________.

A. follow the trend and go on drinking tea

B. drink more water than tea

C. form the habit of eating tea leaves in foods

D. take tea as an important part of their life

25.The passage is mainly about ____________.

A. the benefits of drinking tea

B. the benefits of drinking coffee

C. using tea leaves in fortune telling

D. advising people to drink tea and water
