Light travels at a speed which is about a million times faster than the speed of sound. In one second, light travels about 300,000 km, but sound travels only 0.334 km. You can get some idea of this difference by watching the start of a race. If you stand some distance away from the starter, you can see smoke come from his gun before the sound reaches your ears.
This great speed of light produces some strange facts. Sunlight takes about 8 minutes to reach us. If you look at the light of the moon tonight, remember that the light rays left the moon 1.3 seconds before they reached you. The nearest star is so far away that the light which you can see from it tonight started to travel towards you four years ago at a speed of nearly 2 million km per minute. In some cases, the light from one of tonight’s stars started on its journey to you before you were born.
Thus, if we want to be honest, we cannot say, “The stars are shining tonight.” We have to say, “The stars look pretty. T hey were shining four years ago but their light has only just reached Earth.”
56. Light speed is _____ than sound speed.
A. millions times faster B. a million times slower
C. about millions of times faster D. about a million times faster
57. If you stand 200 meters away from a man who is firing a gun to start a race, you will find out that ___
A. you can hear the gun before you see the s moke
B. sound does not travel as fast as ligh t
C. the sound of the gun will reach you before the man fires his gun
D. sound travels about a million times faster than light
58. The light of the nearest star you see tonight has been ____ for years.
A. on the earth B. on the moon
C. away from the sun D. away from the star
However, the number of people who learn English as a foreign language is more than 750 million. Everywhere in the world children go to school to learn English. Most people learn English for five or six years at high school. In China students learn English at school as a foreign language, except for those in Hong Kong, where many people speak English at school as a first or a second language.
In only fifty years, English has developed into the language most widely spoken and used in the world. English i s the working language of most international organizations, international trade and tourism. Businessmen and tourists often come to China without being able to speak Chinese. Chinese businessmen, taxi drivers and students talk with them using English. English is also the language of global culture, such as popular music and the Internet. You can listen to English songs on the radio or use English to communicate with people around the world through the Internet. With so many people communicating in English every day, it will become more and more important to have a good knowledge of English.
59. How many people learn English as a second language?

Throughout history, people have been interested in knowing how language first began, but no one knows exactly where or how this happened. However, we do know a lot about languages, the languages of today and also the languages of earlier times. There are probably about three thousand languages in the world today. Chinese is the language with the most speakers. English, Russian and Spanish are also spoken by many millions of people. On the other hand, some languages in the world have less than one hundred speakers.
There are several important families of languages in the world. For example, most of the languages of Europe are in one large family called Indo-European. The original( 最初的 ) language of this family was spoken about 4,500 years ago. Many of the present day languages of Europe and India are modern forms of the language of 4,500 years ago.
Languages are always changing. The English of today is very different from the English of 500 years ago. In time some even die out completely. About 1,000 years ago English was a little –known relative of German spoken on one of the borders （边界）of Europe.
If a language has a lot of speakers or if it is very old, there may be differences in the way it is spoken in different areas. That is, the language may have several dialects. Chinese is a good example of dialect differences. Chinese has been spoken for thousands of years by many millions of speakers. The differences between the dialects of Chinese are so great that speakers of Chinese from some parts of China cannot understand speakers from other parts.

When I was 16 years old, I made my first visit to the United States. It wasn’t the first time I had been abroad. Like most of English children I learned French at school. And I had often been to France, so I was used to speaking a foreign language to people who didn’t understand French. But when I went to America I was really looking forward to having a nice easy holiday without any language problems.
How wrong I was. The misunderstanding began at the airport. I was looking for a public telephone to give my friend Danny a call and tell her that I had arrived. A friendly old man saw me looking lost and asked if he could help me.
“Yes”, I said. “I want to give my friend a ring.”
“Well, that’s nice,” he said. “Are you getting married? But aren’t you a bit young?”
“Who is talking about marriage?” I replied. “I only want to give my friend a ring to tell her I’ve arrived. Can you tell me where there’s a phone box?”
“Oh!” he said, “there’s a phone downstairs.”
When at last we met, Danny explained the misunderstandings to me.
“Don’t worry,” she said to me, “I had so many difficulties at first. There are lots of words which the Americans use differently in meaning from British. You will soon get used to all the funny things they say. Most of the time British and American people understand each other!”

During the 20th century there has been a great change in the lives of women. A woman marrying at the end of the 19th century probably has been in her middle 20’s and would be likely to have seven or eight children. By the time the youngest was 15, the mother would have been in her early 50’s and would expect to live a further 20 years, during which chance and health made it hard for her to get paid work. Today women ma rry younger and have fewer children.
Usually a woman’s youngest child will be 15 when she is 45 and she can be expected to live another 35years and is likely to get paid work until 60.
This important change in women’s life has only recently begun to have its full effect on women’s economic position. Even a few years ago most girls left school and took a fulltime job. However, when they married they usually left work at once and never returned to it. Today the school-leaving age is 16, many girls stay at school after that age, and though women marry younger, more married women stay at work at least until shortly before their first child is born. Very many more return to work later. Such changes have led to a new relationship in marriage, with the husband accepting a greater share of the duties of family life.
72. We learn from this passage that in the 19th century_____ .
A. there were more children in the world than there are today
B. women spent a greater part of their lives raising children than they do today
C. there were more women in poor health than there are today
D. women married younger than they do today
73. One reason why a married woman of today may take a job is that ____.
A. she is usually younger when her children are old enough to look after themselves
B. she is obliged to help her husband support the family
C. she feels lonely at home when her children grow up
D. she hopes to change the world a bit by doing so
74. Many girls are now likely to ____.
A. give up their jobs after they get married
B. leave school as soon as they can
C. marry early so that they can get better jobs
D. continue working until they are going to have a baby
75. Now a husband probably ____ .
A. plays a greater part in looking after the children
B. does almost all of the housework
C. feels unhappy about his wife’s going out to work
D. takes a part-time job so as to help at home
My mother is a diligent and kind woman. She is very busy from morning till night. As a teacher, she works hard. 1 Both my brother and I love her dearly as she loves us.
My mother has been teaching math at a middle school in my hometown. She goes to work early in the morning and does not return home until late in the afternoon. 2 She treats them with patience and teaches them well. For her excellent quality and very good teaching results, she has been elected as a model teacher several times.
3 Every day, when she comes back home from work, she sets about doing housework, sweeping the living room and bedrooms or cleaning the furniture, and putting everything in good order. She seems to be busy all the time. As she has been very busy working every day, she looks older than her age. But she looks as cheerful and happy as ever. Mother never buys expensive dresses for herself, but she often buys some inexpensive but high quality clothes for us. 4 She just eats a plain meal outside when she is too busy to cook herself. She lives a busy yet simple life, without any complaints.
Often she says to us, “work while you work, and play while you play. That is the way to be happy and gay. If you do not work, you will become lazy and be of no use to society”. What a piece of good advice this is! 5 This advice of hers will always serve as a guide to my behavior. My mother is great indeed, and I always feel proud of her.

Dear Wang Hai,
I’m very glad to have received a letter you sent me two weeks ago. I had been thinking about the question you asked me. On my opinion, you should come back here after you finish your studies abroad.
For one thing, that you are studying is badly needed nowadays in China. It will be quite easy for me to
find a good job. As a matter of fact, I know a little big companies in our city hopes to hire people like
you. For another, I think it will be much more conveniently for you to look your parents as they are getting
old. Therefore, I think it’s a good idea for you to return back.
