第 10 页,共 18 页

was learning the clavier, an early keyboard instrument, when her three-year-old brother took an interest in playing. As Nannerl later recalled, Wolfgang"often spent much time at the clavier picking out thirds ( 三 度音), which he was always striking, and his pleasure showed that it sounded good." Their father Leopold, an assistant concertmaster at the Salzburg Court, recognized his children’s unique gifts and soon devoted himself to their musical education. Born in Salzburg, Austria, on January 27, 1756, Wolfgang had composed his first original work by ag e five. Leopold planned to take Nannerl and Wolfgang on tour to play before the European courts. Their first venture was to nearby Munich where the children played for Maximillian III Joseph, elector of Bavaria. Leopold soon set his sights on the capital of the Hapsburg Empire, Vienna. On their way to Vienna, th e family stopped in Linz, where Wolfgang gave his first public concert. By this time, Wolfgang was not only a sk illed harpsichord player, but he had also mastered the violin. The audience at Linz was amazed by the six-ye ar-old, and word of his genius soon traveled to Vienna. In a much attended concert, the Mozart children appe ared at the Schonbrunn Palace on October 13, 1762. They completely attracted the emperor and empress. Following this success, Leopold received a lot of invitations for the children to play, for a fee. Leop old seized the opportunity and booked as many concerts as possible at courts throughout Europe. A concer t could last three hours, and the children played at least two per day. Today, Leopold might be considered the worst kind of stage parent, but at the time, it was not uncommon for talented people to make extensive con cert tours. Even so, it was an exhausting schedule for a child who was just past the age of needing an afternoon nap.

As pack animals, wolves work togeth er to hunt and rely on howling as an important means of communication among each other. There are di fferent explanations of a wolf ’s howl and it appears that there may be more to discover. One theory is that wolves howl to bond better together. It ’s almost as if howling together helps the pack stay together. Perhaps something is similar to people feeling a sense of involvement with each other w hen singing a song together. But this theory may be wrong, explains Fred H. Harington, a professor who stu dies wolf behavior. Indeed, there have been times when wolves have been seen one moment howling in a chorus, and the

第 12 页,共 18 页

next, quarreling among each other. It appears that usually the lowest-ranking members of the pack may actually be "punished" for joining in the chorus at times. So is howling a way to strengthen a social b ond or just a way to reconfirm status among its members? - Why do wolves howl for sure? What is clear, however, is that howling is often used among packmates to locate each other. Huntin g grounds are distant and it happens that wolves may separate from one another at times. When this ha ppens, howling appears to be an excellent means of gathering. Howling, interestingly, is a contagious behavior. When one wolf starts to howl, very likely others will

follow. This is often seen to occur in the morning, as if wolves were doing some sort of "roll call" wh ere wolves all howl together to report their presence. 1. What the possible similarity between wolves’ howling together and human’s singing in chorus? A. The act of calling each other. B. the sense of accomplishment. C. The act of hunting for something. D. The sense of belonging to a group. 2. Why does Harrington think the "social bond" theory may be wrong? A. Wolves separate from each other after howling. B. Wolves tend to protect their hunting grounds. C. Wolves sometimes have quarrels after howling together. D. Wolves of low rank are encouraged to join in the chorus. 3. Researchers are sure that wolves often howl to _____. A. show their ranks B. find their companions C. report the missing ones D. express their loneliness 4. "Howling… is a contagious behavior" (in the last paragraph) means _____. A. howling is a signal for hunting

B. howling is a way of communication C. howling often occurs in the morning D. howling spreads from one to another 26.阅读理解。 For many businessmen online education has been a dream. Now it has come true. The investment (投资) in higher education, whether financial or in terms of time, has long been impossible for many of them. B ut well-known educational institutions have chosen to deliver an internet-based program, and these barriers have been lifted. That is good news for people eager to improve themselves and is more attractive to employers. It i s also a benefit to industry with better qualified candidates applying for jobs at every level. Having the benefits of a higher qualification without going to the university campus is attractive to many students. Campus study means greater cost, while online programs are flexible and save time, whether at home or at work. Students can achieve their degrees without causing too much disruption to their career or home life. In addition to affordable, flexible classes and greater convenience, students also have access to the online learning resources of many of the world’s top educational institutions. They can also communicate with their tutors no matter what time it is or whether either party is away for any reason. This has opened up the possibility of getting a qualification from a university or college that many s tudents could only have dreamed of in the past. It also allows specialists to get the precise qualifications and f ocus on their studies. As well as seeing the increase of applicants from lower-incomes and housewives, studying online
