  W: Jack, sit down and listen. This is important. we’ ll have to tackle the problems of the exporting step by step. And the first move is to get an up-to-date picture of where we stand now.

  M: Why don’t we just concentrate on expending here at home?

  W: Of course, we should hold on to our position here. But you must admit the market here is limited.

  M: Yes, but it’s safe. The government keeps out foreigners with import controls. So I must admit I feel sure we could hold our own against foreign bikes.

  W: I agree. That’s why I am suggesting exporting. Because I feel we can compete with the best of them.

  M: What you are really saying is that we’d make more profit by selling bikes abroad, where we have a cost advantage and can charge high prices.

  W: Exactly.

  M: But, wait a minute. Packaging, shipping, financing, etc. will push up our cost and we could no better off, maybe worse off.

  M: How sure are you about our chances of success in the foreign market?

  M: There will be a lot of problems.

Nothing I could do would make a difference here.” As he neared the bus stop on his way home, Mark saw a woman carrying a grocery bag and a baby. As Mark got closer, her other child, a little boy, suddenly darted into the street. The woman tried to reach for him, but as she moved, her bag shifted and the groceries started to fall out. Mark ran to take the boy’ s arm and led him back to his mother. “You gotta stay with Mom”, he said. Then he picked up the groceries while the woman smiled in relief. “Thanks!” she said. “You’ve got great timing!” Just being neighborly,” Mark said. As he rode home, he glanced at the poster near his seat in the bus. “Small acts of kindness add up.” Mark smiled and thought, “Maybe that’ s a good place to start.”

  Passage Three

  An distressing childhood can lead to heart disease. What about current stresses? Longer workouts, threats of layoffs, collapsing pension funds. A study last year on the lancer examine more than 11,000 heart attack suffers from 52 countries. It found that in the year before their heart attacks. Patients had been under significantly more strains than some 30,000 healthy control subjects. Those strains came from work, family, financial troubles, depression in other causes. "Each of these factors individually was associated with increased risk," says Doctor Salim Yussef, Professor of medicine and candidates McMaster University and senior investigator on the study. Together, they accounted for 30% to overall heart attack risk. But people respond differently to high-pressure work situations, whether it produces hard problems seems to depend on whether you have a sensitive control over life or live at the mercy of circumstances and superiors. That was experiences of John Connell, a rock food Illinois laboratory manager, who suffered his first heart attack in 1996 at the age of 56. In the 2 years before, his mother and 2 of his children had suffered serious illnesses, and his job had been changed in a re-organization. "My life seemed completely out of control," he says, "I had no idea where I would end up." He ended up in hospital due to a block in his artery. 2 months later, he had a triple by-pass surgery. The second heart attack when he was 58, left his doctor shaking his head. "There's nothing more we can do for you," doctors told him.

  Question 23 What does the passage mainly discuss?

  Question 24 What do we learn about JC's family?

  Question 25 What did JC's doctors tell him when he had a second heart attack?

  Conversation 2

  W: What does the term “alternative energy source” mean?

  M: When we think of energy or fuel for our homes and cars, we think of petroleum, a fossil fuel processed from oil removed from the ground, of which there was a limited supply. But alternative fuels can be many things. Wind, sun and water can all be used to create fuel.

  W: Is it a threat of running out of petroleum real?

  M: It has taken thousands of years to create the natural stores of petroleum we have now. we are using what is available at a much faster rate that it is being produced over time. The real controversy surrounding the mass petroleum we have is how much we need to keep in reserve for future use. Most experts agree that by around 2025, the petroleum we use will reach a peak. Then production and availability will begin to seriously decline. This is not to say there will be no petroleum at this point. But it’ll become very difficult and therefore expensive to extract.

  W: Is that the most important reason to develop alternative fuel and energy sources?

  M: The two very clear reasons to do so, one is that whether we have 60 or 600 years of fossil fuels left, we have to find other fuel sources eventually. So the sooner we start, the better off we will be. The other big argument is that when you burn fossil fuels, you release substances trapped into the ground for a long time, which leads to some long-term negative effects, like global warming and greenhouse effect.

  13. What do we usually refer to when we talk about energy according to the man?

  14. What do most experts agree on according to the man?

  15. What does the man think we should do now?

  Section C

  When most people think of the word “education,” they think of a pupil as a sort of animate sausage casing. Into this empty casing, the teachers are supposed to stuff “education”. But genuine education, as Socrates knew more than two thousand years ago , is not inserting the stuffing of information into a person ,but rather eliciting knowledge from him. It is the drawing out of what is in the mind. “The most important part of education,” once wrote William Ernest Hocking, the distinguished Harvard philosopher, “is this instruction of a man in what he has inside him”. So many of the discussions and controversies about the content of education are futile and inconclusive because they are concerned with what should “go into “ the student rather than with what should be taken out, and how this can best be done. A college student who once said to me , after a lecture, “I spend so much time studying that I don’t have a chance to learn anything,” was briefly expressing his dissatisfaction with the sausage-casing view of education.
