Passage 2
      Many people believe the glare from snow cause snow-blindness. Yet, dark glasses or not, they find themselves suffering from headaches and watering eyes, and even snow-blindness, when exposed to several hours of “snow-light”.
       The United Stated Army has now determined that the glare from snow does not cause snow-blindness in troops in a snow-covered country. Rather, a man’s eyes frequently find nothing to focus on in broad expanse of barren snow-covered terrain. So his gaze continually shifts and jumps back and forth over the entire landscape in search of something to look at. Finding nothing hour after hour, the eyes never stop searching and eyeballs become sore and the eye muscles ache. Nature offsets his irritation by producing more and more fluid which covers the eyeball. The fluid covers the eyeball in increasing quantity until vision blurs, and then is obscured, and the result is total, even though temporary, snow-blindness.
        Experiments led the Army to a simple method of overcoming this problem. Scouts ahead of main body of troops are trained to shake snow from evergreen bushes, creating a dotted line as they cross completely snow-covered landscape. Even the scouts themselves throw lightweight, dark colored objects ahead on which they too can focus. The men following can then see something. Their gaze is arrested. Their eyes focus on a bush and stop searching over the snow-blindness landscape for something to see. By focusing their attention on one object at a time, the men can cross the snow without becoming hopelessly snow-blind and the white terrain is overcome.
6. According to the passage, to prevent headaches, watering eyes and blindness caused by the glare from snow, dark glassed are _____.
     A. useful  B. indispensable C. ineffective D. effective
7. The eyeballs become sore and the eyes muscles ache because _____.
     A. tears cover the eyeballs
     B. the eyes are irritated by blinding sunlight in the snow-land
     C. the eyes are irritated by blinding snow
     D. there is nothing to focus on
8. When the eyes are sore, tears are produced to _____.
     A. clear the vision    B. relieve snow-blindness
     C. ease the irritation D. loosen the muscles
9. Snow-blindness may be avoided by _____.
     A. concentrating on the solid white terrain
     B. providing the eyes with something to focus on
     C. searching for something to look at in snow-covered terrain
     D. covering the eyeballs with fluid
10. The scouts shake snow from evergreen bushes in order to _____.
     A. give the men behind something to see
     B. find out what is under
     C. warm themselves in the cold
     D. show the way forward to the men behind

参考答案:6.C    7.D    8.C    9.B    10.A


VI. Short answer questions. (10 points)
Directions: In this part there is a short passage with five questions or incomplete statements. Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words (not exceeding 10 words).
         When we are learning a foreign language, we constantly have to fight a battle, and that is a battle with our own language, always wants to interfere with the target language. Every time we want to say something, we have to push aside our own language, because it keeps coming up in front. And we only become successful at doing this when we manage to suppress our own language and use the target language with some degree of fluency. So this means that grammar does have a role in language learning. It is not something we are completely unconscious of. And I think there are three good reasons why we still need grammar.
           The first reason is that when we are learning English as a foreign language, we cannot avoid grammar. We are learning a language in an artificial situation, in the classroom; we are not learning a language as young child following his mother round the room, and copying things she says and doing things she tells him to do. We are learning, sitting in rows, in a highly artificial way, so that it takes a long time to acquire language and grammar. Every time we learn something, we have questions about it.
           The second reason why we need grammar when we are learning a foreign language as grown-ups, is that grammar gives us shortcut to learning. It’s a quick way to understand something. The more information we are given, the more it helps us to understand something. The more information we are given, the more tit helps us to understand the principles of language acquisition, so that we can communicate better.
            The third reason why we learn grammar is that it is expected. In other words, it is unimaginable that we would learn a language and not have any grammar. If we don’t have any grammar, all the mistakes we make will become a habit, and we will learn to form very, very bad habits in the way we express ourselves, because no one would correct us.
Q1. What is the topic of this passage?
_____________________________________________________________________
Q2. Why do we have to fight a battle with our own language?
_____________________________________________________________________
Q3. What does the author mean by “… learning a language in an artificial situation” (line 2. Para. 2)?
_____________________________________________________________________
Q4. The reason why grown-ups need grammar when learning a foreign language is that grammar
_____________________________________________________________________
Q5. From the last paragraph, we see that without grammar
_____________________________________________________________________

参考答案:

1. Why we learn/need grammar when learning a foreign language
2. Because it always wants to interfere with the target language.
3. Just sitting in classroom in a highly artificial way.
4. Gives them a shortcut to learning/ gives them a quick way to understand something.
5. We wouldn’t know whether we express ourselves correctly.
