Unit 2

English around the world Unit Revision


Ⅰ.阅读理解 A American and British people both speak English of course. But sometimes it does not seem like

the same language. In fact, there are some important differences between British English and American English. First of all, they sound very different. Often, Americans don't say each word separately. They say several words together. Americans may say “I dunno” instead of “I don't know”. However, the British are more careful on their speech. They usually say all the words and keep them separate. Also, some letters have different sounds. For example, the Americans say the “a” in half like the “a” in cat. But the British say the “a” in half like the “o” in soft. Sound is not the only difference between British English and American English. Words sometimes have different meanings too. Some American words are never used in England. The same thing is true of some British words in America. For example, the vocabulary for cars and driving is very different. Americans drive trucks, but in England they drive lorries. Many expressions are also different in the two countries. In England, if you are going to telephone friends, you “ring them up”. In America you “give them a call”. There are also sometimes differences in grammar. For example, Americans usually use the helping verb “do” when they ask a question. They say “Do you have class today?”But the British often leave out the helping verb. They say “Have you class today?” All these differences can be confusing if you are learning English. But most languages are like this. Languages change over time. When people live in separate places, the languages change in different ways. This is what happened to English. It can also happen to other languages, such as French. Many people in Canada speak French but their French is very different from the French of France. 文章大意:本文介绍了美式英语与英式英语的不同点。 1.Compared to the British, Americans are usually________. A.more careful about saying words B.less careful about saying words C.easier to understand D.slower speakers

答案:B 细节判断题。由文章第二段的第二句“Often, Americans don't say each word separately.”可以直接得出答案为 B 项。 2.Some letters in English________. A.always sound the same B.have different sounds in the US and England C.don't change D.have an unusual sound 答案:B 细节判断题。由第三段首句可得出正确答案为 B 项。 3.The vocabulary for cars and driving is________. A.an example of British English B.different in the US and England C.an example of modern technology D.the same in the US and England 答案:B 细节判断题。由文章第四段的最后两句可知。 B (2014· 邯郸市高一期末) Sometimes it is difficult to talk to taxi drivers. They must give all their attention to the road as they work out the shortest way to the place where you are going. However, passengers from Wangfujing were in surprise when they took a taxi. The driver just would not stop talking—in English. Organized by the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy, “Dare to Speak” examines if Chinese people will speak English in “reallife” situations. Matthew Knowles, an acting student from South Carolina at Beijing Film Academy, acted the part as the “driver”. He collected six passengers on Saturday morning, most of whom were female whitecollar (白领)workers. “Of course they were surprised at first, wondering why I'm driving a taxi, and wondering whether this is a real taxi, but then most of them were pretty willing to speak, ” he said. Knowles said he was also surprised by his “passengers”. “Apart from my first ‘passenger’, who could speak very little English, all the rest spoke English very well, and it was fun to communicate with them,” he said, adding that some “passengers” were quite talkative. The “foreign taxi driver” project was just one of the “Dare to Speak” activities, which have been going on since the end of October. Other projects included a foreign store owner near a high school in Beijing, a cook in a Shanghai university canteen. They were testing the willingness of Chinese people, especially students and whitecollar workers, to speak to foreigners in English. Rong Xin, senior manager of IELTS (雅思) with the British Embassy, said they hoped to let IELTS takers in China know that communication is the ultimate goal of IELTS.

“We hope that more and more IELTS takers in China can realize the importance of communicating in English in real life, instead of just getting high test scores,” she said. 文章大意:本文是一篇小品文,主要介绍了英国驻华大使馆所举行的一个活动:敢于说 英语。 4.Why did Matthew Knowles drive a taxi? A.He took part in the project “Dear to speak”. B.He played the role of a taxi driver in a film. C.He enjoyed chatting with people in English. D.He wanted to improve his Chinese while driving. 答案:A 推理判断题。根据第二段和第三段的整体理解,可推知 Matthew Knowles 开 出租是因为他参与了这项“敢开口说英语”的活动,故答案 A 符合文意。 5. The Chinese may meet and talk to ________ in “Dear to speak” projects. A. a whitecollar worker C. a restaurant manager B. a foreign store owner D. a high school student

答案: B 推理判断题。 根据第二段: “Dare to Speak” examines if Chinese people will speak English in “reallife” situations.可推知,在这项活动中中国人会遇到外国人,从而有机会说 英语,故答案 B 符合文意。 6. The underlined word “ultimate” is closest in meaning to ________. A. most difficult C. most famous B. most common D. most important

答案:D 词义猜测题。根据最后一段的整体理解并结合生活常识可知,学习语言的最 终目的是为了交流,无论是书面的还是口头,而不是所谓的考试,考试只是一种检验语言掌 握水平的方式而已,由此可推知答案 D 符合文意。 7. The purpose of the project “Dear to Speak” is to ________. A. attract more foreigners to start business in China B. draw Chinese people's attention to IELT C. remind language learners of the goal of learning D. give more chances for English learners in China 答案: C 目的意图题。 根据第二段: “Dare to Speak” examines if Chinese people will speak English in “reallife” situations.这个活动的主旨和最后一段的呼应,可推知答案 C 符合文 意。 Ⅱ.完形填空 (2014· 福州八县市一中期中联考) A year ago, I paid no attention to English idioms, though my teacher emphasized (强调) the importance again and again.
