    Teahouses in Chengdu

    There is a saying, “China has the best teahouses in the world and Chengdu has the best teahouses in China.”Chengdu has not only many teahouses but also the special ways of serving and drinking tea.

    As soon as the visitors enter the teahouses, the waiters or waitresses will greet them with teapots and cups in their hands. The cups often have special covers and saucers(茶碟). The covers can keep the water warm.

    People who go to the teahouses are not all thirsty. Retired(退休)people pay a little money to the teahouses and then sit there all day long to chat with others. Sometimes, people have parties in the teahouses. They eat fruit and sunflower seeds(瓜子)while they chat and return home when they are tired. Teahouses are also good places for people to talk about businesses. Some of the teahouses even have stages for performances, such as storytelling, cross talk and Sichuan Opera. Sometimes when people have a quarrel, a mediator(调解员)will bring them to the teahouse. After their problem is solved, the person who is wrong will pay for the tea. It is interesting that as soon as the quarrelers enter the teahouse and sit down to drink tea, they have almost calmed down. With the help of the mediator, their problems can be easily solved then.

        American schools are quite different from those in China. In America, at the beginning of the term, students must select their subjects and teachers first.

        Selecting is very important for your marks in America. So at the first term, don't select too many subjects, or you'll feel very nervous and tired. Then you have to ask for some teaching plans. There is some information about subjects, timetables, marks and textbooks. At the same time, you must choose the teachers. Different teachers have different teaching methods. If the teacher is called "killer" by the last grade, many students will give up choosing him, because this kind of teacher will leave too much homework, too many exams and give too low grades

        There is another thing after you select the subjects and the teachers. How to buy textbooks makes each student feel hard. The textbooks in America are very expensive. Each one is about$30-50. In order to save money, many students buy some used textbooks, and some students usually borrow textbooks from the school library.

        In class, discussing is very important. The teacher encourages you to ask questions or show your own opinions. They don't usually ask you to sit well. Instead, they allow you to sit or stand everywhere you like.

    1. What does the understand word "select" mean?

        A.Choose.          B.Like.           C.Treat.            D.Take.

    2.According to the text, American students       .

        A.don't have to ask for teaching plans

        B.don't have to choose teachers

        C.would like to choose strict teachers

        D. usually buy some used textbooks in order to save money

    3. Which of the following is NOT TRUE?

        A.Students won't choose the teacher who leaves too much homework.

        B.Students won't choose the teacher who leaves too many exams.

        C.Students will choose the teacher who is called "killer".

        D.Students won't choose the teacher who gives too low marks.

    4. What is important in American class?

    C.the differences between American and Chinese students

    America is a mobile society. Friendships between Americans can be close and real, yet disappear soon if situations change. Neither side feels hurt by this. Both may exchange Christmas greetings for a year or two, perhaps a few letters for a while — then no more. If the same two people meet again by chance, even years later, they pick up the friendship. This can be quite difficult for us Chinese to understand, because friendships between us flow more slowly but then may become lifelong feelings, extending (延伸) sometimes deeply into both families.

    Americans are ready to receive us foreigners at their homes, share their holidays, and their home life. They will enjoy welcoming us and be pleased if we accept their hospitality (好客) easily.

    Another difficult point for us Chinese to understand Americans is that although they include us warmly in their personal everyday lives, they don't show their politeness to us if it requires a great deal of time. This is usually the opposite of the practice in our country where we may be generous with our time. Sometimes, we, as hosts, will appear at airports even in the middle of the night to meet a friend. We may take days off to act as guides to our foreign friends. The Americans, however, express their welcome usually at homes, but truly can not manage the time to do a great deal with a visitor outside their daily routine. They will probably expect us to get ourselves from the airport to our own hotel by bus. And they expect that we will phone them from there. Once we arrive at their homes, the welcome will be full, warm and real. We will find ourselves treated hospitably.

    For the Americans, it is often considered more friendly to invite a friend to their homes than to go to restaurants, except for purely business matters. So accept their hospitality at home!

    1. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage?

    A. Friendships between Americans usually extend deeply into their families.

    B. Friendships between Americans usually last for all their lives.

    C. Americans always show their warmth even if they are very busy.

    D. Americans will continue their friendships again even after a long break.

    2. From the last two paragraphs we can learn that when we arrive in America to visit an American friend, we will probably be ________.

    A. warmly welcomed at the airport

    B. offered a ride to his home

    C. treated hospitably at his home

    D. treated to dinner in a restaurant

    3. The underlined words “generous with our time” in Paragraph 3 probably mean ________.

    A. strict with time

    B. willing to spend time

    C. careful with time

    D. serious with time

    4. A suitable title for this passage would probably be “________”.

    A. Friendships between Chinese

    B. Friendships between Americans

    C. Americans' hospitality

    D. Americans' and Chinese's views of friendship

    The  patterns on the clothing also have a meaning.A common pattern is in the form of a cross“X” which stands for “unity”Another pattern is a rectangular(长方形的)box, which represents “strength”Because clothing has a strong social meaning, people are very careful in choosing what to wear.It would be a serious mistake to wear the wrong clothing, or to wear clothes in the wrong way. For instance, in Ghana, a woman should wear her waistband(腰带) differently according to the importance of the social event.

    Traditional dress also tells us about everyday life.African designs are famous.Wide temperature range requires that the clothes be comfortable for daily life.

            As traditional Chinese art, paper cutting has a long history. The first and earliest paper cutting was found in China 1,500 years ago. But this traditional art is at risk of disappearing now. Luckily, Voyo Woo, a Chinese immigrant(移民) in America, is trying to bring this art back to life.

            One Saturday in 2014, Ms. Woo held a paper cutting show at a shopping center near Washington. She got much fun and peace doing it. She hoped more people would enjoy it.

            Ms. Woo began to study the art of paper cutting as a 14-year-old girl in her hometown in China. She said all the students at school had to learn paper cutting. But she had a deep love for it. So her teacher spent more time teaching her after class. Later, she won the second prize in a national painting and art competition. Ms. Woo went to America after she finished college in 2008. Soon after that, she took part in an activity to promote(宣传) Chinese paper cutting. And then she was invited to show the art in many important activities. "It is important to promote this art to Americans or anyone who is interested in it. Maybe it will make this art more popular," Woo said.

            From the art of paper cutting, people can know about Chinese cultural values, history and stories of people's life. Ms. Woo uses the art as a tool to show Chinese culture to people who know little about it. Chinese art is not only for Chinese, but also for people all over the world.

    1. What did Ms. Woo do in 2014?

          A. She won the second prize in a national painting and art competition.

          B. She was invited to many activities to show paper cutting.

          A. when she was fourteen                                  B. after she got to America

          C. when she was in college                                D. after she finished college

    3. In the passage, the writer thinks the art of paper cutting is                  now.

          A. very popular in America                                 B. very popular in China

          C. for people who know about it                         D. in danger of disappearing

    Tea is an important part of Chinese tradition. Tea has very close relationship to Chinese culture.

    It is said that Chinese tea was discovered by King Shen Nong. People say that he lived 5000 years ago. One summer day, while he was visiting a faraway part of his country, he felt very thirsty. The servants began to make water hot enough to turn into gas for him to drink. Dried leaves from a near plant fell into the water. The king drank some, and found it could make him feel less tired. Also as a scientist, Shen Nong was interested in the new drink. And so, tea was created in 2737 BC.

    Drinking tea has many advantages. It makes people feel less tired, clears heat inside the human body and helps people lose weight. As you add a cup of tea to your daily life, please check the following helpful advice.

    •Do not drink too much strong tea. It will probably be harmful to your stomach and make you feel sick if you make the tea too strong.

    •The best time to drink tea is between meals. It may not make you have a strong wish to eat when your stomach is empty, or cause stomachache when your stomach is full.

    •Do not drink with medicine. It may change the medical result. You can drink tea two hours after you take medicine.

    When two people meet, there are a lot of ways of greeting. The ways of greeting are not always the same in different countries.

    In America, two people usually greet each other with a handshake. It is a way to show respect(尊重)to the other person. Athletes from opposite teams s hake hands before a game for the same reason. However, most Americans don’t shake hands when they meet people they have already known well. When American friends meet each other, they might only wave(挥手), or maybe just nod(点头)their heads.

    In New Z ealand, there is a special way of greeting called “Hongi”. In the greeting, two people press their noses and foreheads(前额)together and close their eyes . This is an old tradition that comes from the Maori, who were the first people to live in New Zealand. Even today, many New Zealanders still press their foreheads when they meet.

    Kissing is sometimes used as a way to greet someone. In some countries, important people used to wear special rings. It was the custom for visitors to kiss these rings when they came for a meeting. In France, when people meet, they sometimes kiss each other on the face.

    In Japan, people bow to each other every time they meet. Even family members bow to each other. People decide how low to bow depending on how respected the other person is.

    Today, new ways of greeting are created all the time. People can do this with a quick “hi”, a handshake, or even a simple smile. The important thing is that the peopl e they are greeting understand them.

         In different countries around the world, most children must start schooling at early ages.

     And they become "adults" at different ages. Being an adult means having the right to do certain

     things, such as getting a part-time job, voting(投票), getting married, or getting a driving license

     It also means accepting the responsibilities that go along with these rights.

         In many countries, sixteen or eighteen is the age when a person becomes an adult. Young

     men and women at this age can get a part-time job, and begin to receive an income of their own.

     They no longer have to depend on their parents for money all the time. In Canada and America,

     sixteen is the age when one can get a driving license; in England, it is seventeen.

         There are responsibilities that go along with both of these rights. Getting a part-time job

     means that you have to pay income tax. Driving a car demands that you follow certain rules like

     buying car insurance.

        Voting is another right that young people enjoy when they become adults. In the United

    States, Canada and Britain, young people have the right to vote at the age of eighteen. With this

    right also comes responsibility. For young people to use their right to vote wisely, they must

    have an understanding of the needs of society, and they must also learn how politics work.

    阅读理解,根据短文内容,从短文后各题所给的ABCD四个选项中,

    选择最佳选项。

    For some people, the sight of a mouse can be the reason to scream. For other mice, the same sight can be the reason to sing.

    Mice will possibly never sing their way to Broadway (百老汇), but researchers from Washington University in the United States have found evidence that mice do, in fact, sing. Until now, singing mice have become stars in cartoons, but they have never been heard singing out in real life before.

    Scientists already knew that mice make ultrasonic (超声波) sounds—noises that are too high for people to hear without special equipment(仪器). Mouse babies cry out when they lose their mothers. Male mice make noise when they smell females.

    To find out whether mice put such sounds together in song-like pattern(模式), the researchers recorded the sounds of 45 male mice. They put each mouse in its own room and cause them to make noise. Microphones recorded the sounds.

    Using computer software, the researchers found the mice produced about 10 syllables(音节) every second.

    The results showed that nearly all of the mice repeated sequences (顺序)of syllables in different ways. Scientists call that a song. Birds, whales, and people do the same thing.

    Not all scientists are sure that what the mice are doing is actually singing. To prove it, the researchers must show that mice are able to learn to sing. And, they need to figure out why the mice sing. One guess, the researchers say, is that male mice use songs to attract females that they like.

    However, the discovery that mice produce such complicated sounds could be useful for the study of communication in animals, including people.

    1. We hear mice singing only when we      .

    A. pay special attention to them                           B. go to Broadway

    C. have learned a lot about them                            D. watch a cartoon movie

    2. From the third paragraph, we know        .

    A. mice often sing their songs to warn other mice

    B. mice are more clever than human beings

    C. mice only use ultrasonic sounds to communicate

    D. mice’s ultrasonic sounds are too high for people to hear without special equipment

    3. What does the passage mainly tell us?

    A. Mice sing in real life.                              B. Mouse babies cry in real life.    

    C. Mice sing for no reasons.                      D. Computers are used to study mouse songs.
