In the early 1950s,researchers found that people scored lower on intelligence tests if they spoke more than one language.Research in the sixties found the opposite.Bilingual people scored higher than monolinguals,people who speak only one language.So which is it? Researchers presented their newest studies last month at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.The latest evidence shows that being bilingual does not necessarily make people smarter.But researcher Ellen Bialystok says it probably does make you better at certain skills. Ellen Bialystok said,“Imagine driving down the highway.There're many things that could capture(捕获)your attention and you really need to be able to monitor(监视)all of them.Why would bilingualism make you any better at that?” And the answer,she says,is that bilingual people are often better at controlling their attention—a function called the executive control system. Ms.Bialystok is a psychology professor at York University in Toronto,Canada.She says the best method to measure the executive control system is called the Stroop Test.A person is shown words in different colors.The person has to ignore the word but say the color.The problem is that the words are all names of colors. Ellen Bialystok said,“So you would have the word blue written in red,but you have to say red.But blue is so salient(显著的),it's just lighting up all these circuits in your brain,and you really want to say blue.So you need a mechanism(机制)to override that so that you can say red.That's the executive control system.” Her work shows that bilingual people continually practice this function.They have to, because both languages are active in their brain at the same time.They need to suppress one to be able to speak in the other. This mental exercise might help in other ways,too.Researchers say bilingual children are better able to separate a word from its meaning,and more likely to have friends from different cultures.Bilingual adults are often four to five years later than others in developing dementia or Alzheimer's disease. 【解题导语】 本文是一篇中等难度的科普说明文。最新的研究表明,说双语的人不一 定比说一种语言的人聪明,但是他们的某些技能水平更高。 1.What's the main idea of the text?

A.white C.blue in red,but you have to say red.去推断。] 4.Which group of people can most likely pass the Stroop Test? A.People who can speak only Chinese. B.People who can speak only Japanese. C.People who can speak more than one language. D.People who can speak only English. 答案 C [细节理解题。根据第四段中的关键信息 bilingual people are often better at controlling their attention...可知正确答案。] Ⅳ.书面表达 假如你是李华,你的朋友 Peter 给你发来邮件,询问你校正在开展的“低碳活动”。根 据要点写回信。 (1)尽量乘公交车、走路或骑车; (2)使用电子贺卡; (3)双面使用纸张; (4)节约用电、用水 。 活动主题是:行动改变世界(Act On the Earth)。 要求:100 词左右;首句已给出。 Dear Peter, With regard to your enquiry, I am here to tell you more details about the low carbon programmes that are right now taking place in my school. __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ 【参考范文】 Dear_Peter, With_regard_to_your_enquiry,_I_am_here_to_tell_you_more_details_about_the_low_carbon _programmes_that_are_right_now_taking_place_in_my_school. We would like to start by B.yellow D.red B.take no notice of D.take care of

答案 B [词义猜测题。根据上下文可猜出 override 在此处的含义为“不予理睬”(=take

答案 A [细节理解题。 根据第六段的关键信息 So you would have the word blue written

suggesting not to take private vehicles for daily transportation. Instead, we recommend you to walk, ride or take a public bus to school. Secondly, we reckon that electronic greetings cards should gain more popularity among caring people. Meanwhile, paper ought to be used to full extent, namely we must write on both sides. Last but not least, with energy crisis threatening our lives, water and electricity,for example, two of our major necessities amongst other things, have to be consumed wisely and economically. Under the theme of Act On the Earth, we hope that we can lead a healthy and sustainable low carbon life. Best wishes! Li Hua
