The word “sandwich”, for example, is very common in English. If we want to know the story behind it, we must know something about an English nobleman(贵族) called Sandwich. Sandwich lived in the 18th century. He liked to play cards for money. He often played for twenty four hours, and not even stopped to have his meal. He ordered his servants to bring some meat and bread, and he played while eating. He put the meat between two pieces of bread, and he held the food in his left hand while he played with his right hand．People liked Sandwich’s idea and began to eat bread and meat in this way. From the name of the man Sandwich, we have the word “sandwich” today. 41. Sandwich is very popular food today, which comes from ______. A. a man’s name B. a nobleman’s play C. a servant’s name D. people’s idea 42. What did Sandwich play cards for?
A. Pleasure B. Living C. Food D．Pounds 43. Which of the following is the best explain to the reason why Sandwich did not stop to have his meals? A．He played cards with his right hand． B．He put the meat between two pieces of bread. C．He played cards for twenty four hours. D．He played cards while eating. 44. People began to call the food sandwich and eat it ______. A．as soon as they found Sandwich’s idea． B. when they heard the story about Sandwich C. though they didn’t liked eating it in that way. D. because they liked Sandwich’s idea 45. Which of the following can be the best title for this passage? A. How Sandwich played cards B. How the word “sandwich” came into use. C. A bright idea D. An interesting story B If you want to become a fluent English speaker you should take some advice: There are four skills in learning English which are reading, listening, speaking, and writing. The most important thing you must remember is that if you want to improve your speaking and writing skills you should first master the skills of reading and listening. Read as much as you can. But your reading must be active. It means that you must think about the meaning of the sentence, the meaning of the unfamiliar words, etc. There is no need for you to pay much attention to grammars or try to understand all the unfamiliar words you come across, but the fact that you see them for the first time and recognize them whenever you see them, for example, in other passages or books, is enough. It would be better to prepare yourself a notebook so you can write down the important words or structures in it. As for listening, there are two choices: besides reading, you can listen every day for about 30 minutes. You can only pay attention to your reading and become skillful at your reading, then you can catch up on your listening. Since you have lots of inputs in your mind, you can easily guess what the speaker is going to say. This never means that you should not practice listening. For listening you can listen to cartoons or some movies that are specially made for children. Their languages are easy. Or if you are good at listening you can listen to VOA or BBC programs every day. Again the thing to remember is being active in listening and taking some notes. If you follow these pieces of advice, your speaking and writing will improve automatically(不自觉地), and you can be sure that with a little effort they will become perfect. 46. According to the writer, which should you improve first among the four skills? A. Reading and listening B. Reading and writing C. Writing and speaking D. Speaking and listening 47. To improve your reading, when you read you should______. A. look up all the new words in the dictionary B. think about what you are reading actively C. spend more time studying grammar D. copy as many words and sentences as possible 48. The underline phrase “come across” in para.2 means_______. A. meet by accident B. discover C. find on purpose D. look for 49. The writer seems(好像) to agree with the opinion that______. A. everyone should listen to VOA or BBC programs every day B. you needn’t practice listening if you keep on reading every day C. being good at reading is helpful in improving your listening D. you should take notes of whatever you are listening 50. The passage is mainly about how to _______. A. choose good listening materials (材料) B. deal with new words in reading C. improve your English as quickly as possible D. become fluent in speaking and writing English
