ould celebrate his September 28 birthday with a big cake, there would be a lot of candles. He’d need a fan or a strong wind to help him put them out. While many people in China will remember Confucius on his special day, few people in the United States will give him a passing( 短暂 的 ) thought. It’s nothing personal. Most Americans don’t even remember the birthdays of their own national heroes. But this doesn’t mean that Americans don’t care about Confucius. In many ways he has become a bridge that foreigners must cross if they want to reach a deeper understanding of China. In the past two decades, the Chinese studies programs have gained huge popularity in Western universities. More recently, the Chinese government has set up Confucius Institutes in more than 80 countries. These schools teach both Chinese language and culture. The main courses of Chinese culture usually included Chinese art, history and philosophy（哲学）. Some social scientists suggest that Westerners should take advantages of the ancient Chinese wisdom to make up for the drawbacks of Westerners philosophy. Students in the United States, at the same time, are racing to learn Chinese. So they will be ready for life in a world where China is an equal power with the United States. Businessmen who hope to make money in China are reading books about Confucius to understand their Chinese customers. So the old thinker’s ideas are still alive and well. Today China attracts the West more than ever, and it will need more teachers to introduce Confucius and Chinese culture to the West. As for the old thinker, he will not soon be forgotten by people in the West, even if his birthday is forgotten. 1. The opening paragraph is mainly intended to ________ A. provide some key facts about Confucius B. attract the readers’ interest in the subject C. show grea t respect for the ancient thinker D. prove the popularity of modern birthday celebrations 2. We can learn from Paragraph 4 that American students______ A. have a great interest in studying Chinese B. take an active part in Chinese competitions C. try to get high scores in Chinese exams D. fight for a chance to learn Chinese 3. What is the best title for the passage? A. Forgotten Wisdom in America B. Huge Fans of the Chinese Language C. Chinese Culture for Westerners D. Old Thinker with a Big Future 4. The passage is most likely to appear in ___________. A. a biography lesson B. a history paper C. a newspaper D. a philosophy textbook B The class of eighth grade at a Los Angeles middle school tap their rulers and nod their heads to the rhythm of the rap video shown on a screen. Their algebra（代数） teacher, LaMar Queen, uses rhyme to help them memorize seemingly difficult items to improve their grades. 总分：150 分）
Queen, 26, is now known at Los Angeles Academy Middle School as the rap teacher, but his fame has spread beyond the 2，200student school in this neighborhood. He's won a national award and shown teachers and parents how to use rap to teach children. “Math is a bad word for many students, but if we put it in a form tha t kids enjoy, they'll learn，” Queen said. “Rap is what the kids respond to. They don't have a problem memorizing the songs at all.” Queen's math rap came about by chance. Two months after starting at LA Academy, he was frustrated （泄气的） when kids said his class was boring. They thought that he looked like the singer Kanye West, so they challenged him to rap. Queen has been rapping since the seventh grade. With his students' challenge on his mind, he pushed aside work on his lesson plans and wrote a rap song Slope Intercept. Word of his rapping soon reached the school's main office. Principal Maria Borges went to look into it, and came out smiling.” It interests the kids，” she said.” Kids seem to know all the rap songs, and it's helpful for them to remember math rules.” “Some kids who aren't even in Mr Queen's class go around singing his songs，” said Kejon Closure, 13, who went from a Caverage to an A. In the raps, Queen defines（定义） a math concept and works through sample problems step by step. He keeps a relaxed manner when singing with his students. Queen also tries to inspire them. His lyrics（歌词） tell students “to get As on your papers”，and “to be respectful and listen to your parents”．Sometimes the students appear in the videos as a reward for good grades and behavior. 5．According to the passage, LaMar Queen has been ________ since he began to teach students at Los Angeles Academy. A．a popular teacher B．a music teacher C．a mathematics teacher D．a famous singer 6. LaMar Queen has won a national award because ________． A．he is good at composing rap songs B．his new musical production was shown on TV C．he created a unique teaching method in math D．he gave students a lot of confidence 7.

The priest (神父）of this temple was widely respected. When he grew old, he started searching for a younger priest to replace him after his death. However， much to his disappointment, he could not find any suitable person. As the priest lay on his deathbed, h e called his assistant and told him，“After my death, make sure that only a 'human being ，replaces me as the priest of this temple. ” As soon as he said these words, he died. Information soon travelled far and wide. A day was set for the selection of the successor (继 任者）.That day, many people started coming to the temple. The route to the temple was full of thorns (荆棘）and stones. By the time most people reached the temple, they had had cuts on their feet and hands. By afternoon, as the selection process was about to end, one young man walked slowly into the temple. The assistant noticed him and said ， "Young man, you are very late. ” The man replied, “I know I am late, so I will not participate in the competition. ” But the assistant was curious to know about this man. He asked again, “But how did you hurt yourself so badly? Didn't you follow the same route as the others?” “I did, “replied the man, “But I thought I must remove the thorns and sharp stones from the path so that when people come to pray in this temple they won't get hurt. ” Hearing this, the assistant smiled and said, "Congratulations, you have been chosen.，’ This greatly annoyed the other participants(参加者). “ How can you choose him as he has not gone through any of the tests?” they demanded.
The assistant replied, “Our old priest used to say that only a human being, knows how to watch for other people's interests. All of you climbed the same path. But only this man thought about the others and cleared the path so that no one would get hurt. By this definition (定义）， only he qualifies as a human being ，and therefore only he should be the successor to the great old priest. " 8. What happened immediately after the old priest died? A.

This means milk. He also knows the signs for his favorite toy and the word more. Ryan is not deaf, and his parents are not deaf, but his mother and father are teaching him to sign. They say a word and make a sign at the same time. They repeat this again and again. When Ryan learns a new sign, his family is very excited. Ryan’s parents think that he will be a happier baby because he can communicate with them. Ryan’s parents are teaching Ryan to sign because of a man named Joseph Garcia. Although Garcia was not from a deaf family, he decided to learn American Sign Language (ASL). First, he took courses in ASL. Then he got a job helping deaf people communicate with hearing people. In his work, he saw many deaf parents sign to their infants. He noticed that these babies were able to communicate much earlier than hearing children. Garcia decided to try something new. He taught ASL to parents who were not deaf. The families started to teach signs to their infants when they were six or seven months old. These babies started using signs about two months later. Some people worry about signing to babies. They are afraid that these babies won’t feel a need to talk. Maybe they will develop spoken language later than other babies. However, research does not show this. In fact, one study found just the opposite. Signing babies actually learned to speak earlier than other children. As they grow older, these children are more interested in books. They also score higher on intelligence tests. There is still a big question for parents: Which are the best signs to teach their babies? Some parents make their own signs. Other parents want to teach ASL. It can be useful because many people understand it. There’s no clear answer, but we do know this: All signing babies and their families are talking quite a lot! 12. Why are Ryan’s parents teaching him to sign? A. They want to understand him. B. They are doing an experiment. C. He prefers signing to speaking. D. He was born with hearing problems. 13. What caused Garcia to start his courses? A. His dream to make ASL popular.
B. His wish to help as many deaf people as possible. C. His discovery that parents fail to communicate earlier. D. His concern that parents fail to communicate with their babies. 14. Some people say no to signing to babies because they think_____. A. it is bad for their intelligence. B. it is a waste of time and money. C. it will slow their language development D. it will affect their future school performance. 15. What would be the best title for the text? A. American Sign Language B. Children development C. Global language D.
