It seems more and more Americans want schools to teach foreign languages to children younger than five years old. The most popular way to teach these young children another language is called immersion.
Children in immersion programs hear only the new language in the classroom. The children play games, sing songs and talk to one another in the new language. Some experts say immersion programs are the most effective way for young children to learn a language. But there can be a problem when children in the United States begin to learn another language at such an early age. Not many elementary schools(小学) continue the effort as the children get older. Only seven of the fifty states require schools to teach a foreign language to students between the ages of six and twelve. Language experts say it is easier for younger children to learn a language. Still, American schools generally do not begin to teach foreign languages until secondary schools. By then, students are about thirteen years old.
American schools face difficult choices about the cost of educational programs. The federal government has increased support for foreign language study in its education law called No Child Left Behind.
At the college level, the Modern Language Association says more students than ever are studying foreign languages. The group recently announced its findings for the period from 1998 until 2002. The number of students who studied foreign languages in American colleges and universities increased by seventeen percent. Spanish is the most widely taught language in American colleges and universities. Other popular languages include French, German, Japanese, Chinese and Italian. The Modern Language Association says more languages are being studied now than in the past. It says the largest growth since 1998 has been in the study of American Sign Language, Arabic and biblical Hebrew(希伯来语). The association says about nine percent of college students in the United States study foreign languages. That is the highest level since 1972.
56. The text is mainly about _____.
A. foreign language learning in America
B. foreign language teaching methods in America
C. foreign language teaching in American universities
D. foreign language teaching in American high schools
57. The underlined word "immersion" in the first paragraph means "_____".
A. put one's head into the water
B. pay full attention to one's work
C. a teaching method of using only the new language
D. a teaching method of hearing two languages
58. What problem do American children face if they learn a foreign language at an early age?
A. American children are mostly too poor to learn any foreign languages.
B. Their foreign language teachers don't know how to teach them effectively.
C. The American government doesn't pay attention to children's foreign language teaching.
D. Only a small number of elementary schools continue to teach foreign languages.
59．What is the main idea of the last paragraph?

Solar energy for your home is coming. It can help you as a single home owner. It can help the whole country as well. Whether or not solar energy can save your money depends on many things. Where you live is one factor and the type of home you have is another. Things like insulation (绝缘材料), present energy costs, and the type of system you buy are added factors.
Using solar energy can help save our precious fuel. As you know, our supplies of oil and gas are very limited. There is just not enough on hand to meet all our future energy needs. Sooner or later Mother Nature will say that's all. The only way we can delay hearing those words is by starting to save energy now and by using other sources, like the sun.
We won't have to worry about the sun's running out of energy for another several billion years or so. Besides, the sun doesn't offer as many problems as other energy sources. For example, fossil fuel(矿物燃料) adds to already high pollution levels. With solar energy, we will still need sources of energy, but we won't need as much. That means we can cut down on our pollution problems.
With all these good points, why don't we use more solar power? There are many reasons for this. The biggest reason is money. Until now, it was just not practical for a home owner to put in a solar unit. There were cheaper sources of energy.
All that is changing now. Solar costs are starting to equal the costs of oil and electricity. Experts say that gas, oil and electricity prices will continue to rise. The demand for electricity is increasing rapidly. But new power plants will use more gas, oil or coal. Already in some places the supply of electricity is being rationed (限量供应). Solar energy is now in its infancy (初期). It could soon grow to become a major part of our nation's energy supply.
63. What's this passage mainly about?
A. Something about solar energy and pollution.
B. Solar energy.
C. Energy and pollution.
D. Energy and money.
64. Solar energy can help us _____.
A. escape punishment from nature
B. become home owners
C. get rid of present energy
D. save our precious fuel
65. The sun is an endless source of energy, and it will not run out of energy for _____.
A. several million years
B. several hundred years
C. several billion years
D. several thousand years
66. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
A. Energy from coal would not pollute our living environment.
B. Energy from natural gas would not pollute our living environment.
C. Energy from the sun would not pollute our living environment.
D. Energy from oil would not pollute our living environment.
67. Solar energy is now in its infancy, _____.
A. but in the future it will become an important part of our nation's energy supply
B. so we will build more power plants
C. and the supply of electricity will be rationed throughout the country
D. so we don't need it
Dogs are known for their sense of smell. They can find missing people and things like bombs and illegal (非法的) drugs. Now a study suggests that the animal known as man's best friend can even find bladder（膀胱） cancer.
Cancer cells are thought to produce chemicals with unusual smells. Researchers think dogs have the ability to smell these smells, even in very small amounts, in urine（尿）. The sense of smell in dogs is thousands of times better than in humans.
The study follows reports of cases where, for example, a dog showed GREat interest in a growth on the leg of its owner. The mole（黑痣）was later found to be skin cancer. Carolyn Willis led a team of researchers at Amersham Hospital in England. They trained different kinds of dogs for the experiment. The study involved (需要) urine collected from bladder cancer patients, from people with other diseases and from healthy people. Each dog was tested eight times. In each test there were seven samples for the dogs to smell. The dog was supposed to signal the one from a bladder cancer patient by lying down next to it. Two cocker spaniels (小猎犬) were correct fifty-six percent of the time. But the scientists reported an average success rate of forty-one percent. As a group, the study found that the dogs chose the correct sample twenty-two out of fifty-four times. That is almost three times more often than would be expected by chance alone.
The British medical Journal published the research. In all, thirty-six bladder cancer patients and one hundred and eight other people took part. During training, all the dogs reportedly even identified (识别) a cancer in a person who had tested healthy before the study. Doctors found a growth on the person's right kidney(肾). Carolyn Willis says dogs could help scientists identify the compounds produced by bladder cancer. That information could then be used to develop machines to test for the chemicals. Now, doctors must remove tissue（组织） from the bladder to test for cancer. The team also plans to use dogs to help identify markers for other kinds of cancer.
68. What does the underlined word "it" (in Paragraph 3) refer to?
A. The dog. B. A patient. C. The sample. D. The test.
69. The best title for this passage might be _____.
A. Study Says Dogs Can Smell Cancer
B. Why Dogs Can Smell Cancer
C. A Study on Dogs'Special Ability
D. A Study on Bladder Cancer
70. Dogs can smell cancer because _____.
A. they can smell faster than man
B. their sense of smell is very sensitive
C. they lie down next to patients
D. patients give off special odors
71. What can we conclude from the last paragraph?
A. Dogs can only smell bladder cancer.
B. Dogs have a good knowledge of cancer.
C. Scientists might invent some equipment to test cancer.
D. Cancer doesn't have any sign in the beginning.
After almost 30 years of arguing that a black hole swallows up everything that falls into it, British astrophysicist (天体物理学家) Stephen Hawking moved backward last week.
The world-famous writer of "Brief History of Time" said he and other scientists had got it wrong.
"I've been thinking about this problem for the last 30 years, and I think I now have the answer to it," said Hawking. "A black hole only appears to form but later opens up and set free information about what fell inside. So we can be sure of the past and can predict the future."
The findings could help solve the "black hole information paradox（似是而非的观点）", an important puzzle in modern physics.
A black hole is an area in space where matter is under such pressure that even light can not escape from its gravitational pull(引力). But, exactly what happens there has long puzzled scientists.
Black holes occur when a powerful star burns up its nuclear fuel and gravity forces it to break down in on itself. The GREat weight of the star's outer layers moves in towards its center. The force of gravity keeps nearly all light from escaping and nothing inside can be seen from the outside.
The star actually disappears from the universe into a point of infinite density（高密度）. That is a place where the laws of general relativity that govern space and time break down.
Hawking has devoted most of his life to studying these questions.
At the beginning, cosmologists believed the holes were like a "universal vacuum (真空) cleaner", sucking up everything in their path.
Hawking revolutionized the study of black holes when he proved, in 1976 that, under the strange rules of quantum physics（量子物理）, when black holes form they send out energy and lose mass in the process.
In thinking up this so-called "Hawking radiation", the Cambridge mathematician also created one of the biggest puzzles in physics.
These particles (粒子), he said, contained no information about what has been occurring inside the black hole, or how it formed. Under his theory, once the black hole disappears, all the information within it is lost.
72. What's the importance of Hawking's new findings?
A. They could help solve the puzzle about black holes.
B. They has solved the mystery of "black holes".
C. We can now know what is going on inside "black holes".
D. Scientists have already predicted the future of "black holes" now.
73. What's the meaning of the underlined word "cosmologist" (in Paragraph 9)?
A. A person who studies the universe and its origin and development.
B. A person who studies the stars and their development.
C. A person who travels in a spacecraft.]
D. A person who studies the position of the stars and the movements of the planets.
74. Which of the following is TRUE?
A. Hawking has now studied black holes for more than 40 years.
B. During the course of the black hole's formingthe enormous weight of the star's center moves into the outer layers.
C. Almost nothing can escape from the gravitational pull of the black hole.
D. Scientists have been thinking the black hole contains no information.
75. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. The Formation of the Black Hole
B. Black Hole Information Paradox
C. Black Hole Mystery
D. The Cause of the Black Hole

One possible version：
I'm a senior high student. In my opinion, the classroom is a place for students to gain knowledge. Therefore quietness is badly needed for us to learn our lessons. But recently some students bring their mobile phones to the classroom and we often hear the ring of mobile phones. Some of them even waste precious time in class typing short messages on the mobile phone.
To keep the classroom quiet, those with mobile phones should not talk on the phone or send short messages. They should turn them off. We are supposed to concentrate on our studies.
M: Someone told me Ann's going to become a manager in her father's company.
W: She isn't, is she? She's so young. And she still has a lot to learn, doesn't she?
M: She sure does, but I guess her father doesn't think so.
M: Well done! The job is well done.
W: It certainly is. It seems that he is quite experienced and skillful.
M: I hear you are going to drive to New York this weekend.
W: Oh, I have changed my mind.
W: I think flying will be more comfortable.
M: Does your television need to be repaired?
W: No, my telephone needs to be repaired.
M: Please change this note into three 20-dollar bills and four 10-dollar bills.
W: Sure. Twenty, forty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety, one hundred. Here you are, sir.
M: Thank you very much.
W: So, how are things going, Steve?
M: Well, I was feeling GREat on Saturday, but I started to feel sick on Sunday afternoon. I thought I'd get better, but I feel worse than before.
W: What seems to be the problem?
M: Well, the doctor said it was just a bad cold. He gave me some medicine and told me to take it three times a day after eating, but it doesn't seem to help.
W: Listen, forget about that medicine! Just drink some of my mum's tea and you'll be up and dancing around in no time.
M: Dancing around in no time, right? Well, I guess nothing else seems to be doing the job.
W: I'll come to your place at 7:30. See you then.
W: Hello. This is the emergency 911 operator.
M: Help, help!
W: Please calm down and explain exactly what is happening.
M: Calm down! My car has broken down on the freeway. I have a lady passenger, and she's going to have a baby.
W: Explain exactly where you are.
M: I'm... I'm on the southward road of the Lincoln Expressway, about 15 miles from the Washington Tunnel, and this lady isn't going to wait.
W: OK. What's your name, sir and your passenger's?
M: It's... It's Bob, and I have no idea about the woman. She is in no condition to tell me.
W: I've just sent an ambulance to your position. They should be there any second.
M: Hey, is there anything I can do while we wait?
W: Uh, yes, keep her calm and warm.
M: Help! Yeah, uh, it was wild, I mean really strange.
W: Calm down, sir! Tell me exactly what happened.
M: Well, I was driving home from a party about three hours ago, so it was about 2:00 am, when it was this bright light overhead.
W: OK. And then what happened?
M: It was out of this world. I stopped to watch the light when it disappeared behind a hill, a kilometer ahead of me.
W: Then what?
M: Well, I got back in my car and I started driving towards where the strange machine landed.
W: Perhaps you only saw the lights of an airplane, or the headlights of a car coming closer. Things like that happen, you know.
M: I kept driving for about five minutes when suddenly, a huge animal jumped out in front of my car.
W: Oh, yeah. Then what?
M: Well, then, the animal picked up the front of my car and said, “Get out of the car. I'm taking you to my master!” something like that.
W: Wow? An animal who can speak English! Come on!
M: Then, when I didn't get out of the car, the animal opened the car door, carried me on his shoulders to this round-shaped flying saucer, and well...
W: OK, that's enough.
W: What's the matter with the clock radio? It didn't work this morning.
M: I guess something must be wrong with it.
W: What time is it now?
M: Let me look at my watch. Oh, it's nine-thirty already. Today is Saturday, you know.
W: I got confused about the days. But anyway, it's time for us to get up, or we'll have a real late breakfast.
M: We can have a brunch in a Chinese restaurant for a change.
W: What is a brunch?
M: It's a meal between breakfast and lunch. Many people prefer brunch on Saturdays.
W: All right. Come on. What are you going to put on?
M: Jeans, a sweater, boots and my heavy coat.
W: You don't have to wear that much. It's warm today, much warmer than yesterday.
M: How do you know?
W: I listened to the weather forecast on TV last night. You can open the window and feel it yourself.
M: I guess you are right. Where are my socks?
W: How do I know?
Brain and Kevin are twin brothers. They are also nearly the same height and weight: tall and slim. They even sound the same when they speak. They each have red hair that, at that time, they kept cut short in the same style. Few years ago they both decided to teach English at the same college in China. By strange luck, they taught the same course to students in the same grade. Of course, they each had their own class to teach! One April Fool's day they decided to play a trick on their students. So they wore each other's favorite clothes and taught each other's class. Most of the students never realized what had happened, but a few did manage to figure it out. These students tried not to laugh aloud and didn't bother to take notes. That was their reward for paying attention and being so clever. Still, all the students who were fooled thought it was really funny too!
