But this question never happens about their mother tongue, and yet, it was a foreign language once. However, among all the questions that new parents ask, no doctor has ever heard: “Will my baby be able to learn my language?” Be honest. Do you know all the words of your mother tongue? The answer is: “no”. New words, and new ways of using old words, appear every day. Twenty years ago, who would have been able to understand a sentence like this: “Click here to download your digital book”? Nobody. You never stop learning new vocabulary and you never know how long you will need it. Sometimes, you have the word on the tip of your tongue ... and it sticks there! But you do know this phenomenon (现象) and don’t think that it is because of a bad memory. You should not give this phenomenon more importance in the language you are learning than in your mother tongue. You need to learn only 2,000 or so basic words to be able to create any phrase you need. You can’t avoid (避开) some work in order to learn these necessary words and all the more if you want to learn quickly. And before you consider buying into any method, be sure it is right for you. It is not wise to depend on any method based upon memotechnics (记忆术). The first words seem very easy to learn; so, you buy the course; but then you discover quickly, though too late, that a dozen words later, it is all the more difficult to learn a new word when you have also to learn the trick to memorize it. 60. From the first paragraph, we know that ______. A. there is no need to know all the words of a for-eign language B. it is honest to answer “no” to a question you don’t know C. a baby can know all the new words of its mother tongue D. people find it hard to memorize vocabulary of their language 61. The underlined sentence in Paragraph 3 probably means ______. A. you have no courage to speak the word B. you just fail to remember the word C. you are not sure of the word D. you daren’t open your mouth to speak the word 62. To learn a foreign language, the author advises you ______. A. to remember new words according to memo-technics B. to keep up with new ways of using old words C. to learn at least 2,000 necessary words D. to pay more attention to your bad memory 63. The passage is mainly about ______. A. using old words in a new way B. learning new words from the context C. finding a method to memorize vocabulary D. learning vocabulary of a foreign language C ★★ When greeting someone, an American’s first instinct (本能) is to stick out his or her hand, look directly at the other person, and smile. In some situations, this habit can mean making three mistakes at once. And the moment of greeting is when important first impressions are made. Methods and styles of greeting vary greatly around the world, and you need to know which practices apply in different conditions. A handshake is not the universally good greeting. Also, “Look them right in the eye” is not always the best advice. When greeting Asians for the first time, do not start the handshake. You may be forcing a physical contact that the other person finds uncomfortable. Many Asians, particularly Japanese, have learned to accept the handshake when dealing with Westerners. Because the bow (鞠躬) is the usual greeting in Japan, a slight bow of the head when responding to a handshake is suitable. Middle Easterners, particularly Muslims, avoid body contact with the opposite sex, but persons of the same sex commonly hug when greeting each other. When shaking hands, men should be careful not to pull their hand away too quickly. People from France, Spain, Italy, and Portugal greet friends by kissing on both cheeks. The smile is the universal gesture of friendliness, and in America its meaning is usually clear. The person smiling is happy, or sending out a friendly signal. In other cultures the smile may be sending other signals. In some Latin cultures, for example, the smile may be used to say “Excuse me” or “Please”. If a person from another culture does not return your greeting smile, it doesn’t show bad manners. In some Asian cultures, smiling is a gesture for informal occasions, and smiling while being formally introduced would be considered disrespectful. In many cultures, avoiding eye contact is a sign of respect, but such behavior can lead to misunderstandings. For example, some Asian students have been regarded as disrespecting their American teachers because they do not look at the teacher while he or she is speaking. 64. This passage mainly talks about ______. A. the importance of the first impression B. body language in different cultures C. practices of greeting in business D. greetings in different cultures 65. When two Middle East men meet, they will greet each other by ______. A. shaking their hands quickly B. hugging each other C. kissing on both cheeks D. lowering their heads slightly 66. In America, the gesture “smile” is used to say “______”. A. I’m glad B. Excuse me C. Please D. Sorry 67. If you avoid eye contact in America, you may be considered ______. A. cold B. foolish C. impolite D. shy 第四部分： 写作第一节：对话填空 阅读下面对话，掌握其大意，并根据所给首字母的提示，在标有题号的右边横线上写出一个英语单词的完整、正确形式，使对话通顺。 J — Jennifer M — Mark J: You are listening to Road Rage, and my name is Jennifer.

He is about 1.5 metres in height and has artificial intelligence. This means he can talk with everyone. Sometimes we play chess or play games. Allen can do almost all the housework, such as cleaning the house and cooking the dinner, but the best thing Allen can do is that when no one is at home, he can take care of my grandpa, who is quite old now. My grandpa is satisfied with Allen’s service. Of course, if Allen can be updated when necessary, I think, that’s much better.
