Not caring about the money, parents often send their children to the best schools or even abroad to England, the United States and Australia. They also want their children to take extra-course activities where they will either


learn a musical instrument or ballet, or other classes which will give them a head in life. The Chinese believe that the more expensive an education is, the better it is. So parents will spend an unreasonable amount of money on education. Even poor couples will buy a computer for their son or daughter. However, what most parents fail to see is that the best early education they can give their children is usually very cheap. Parents can see that their children are very skilled in some areas while poor in others. What most parents fail to realize though, is that today’s children lack self-respect and self-confidence. The problem is that parents are only educating their children on how to take multiple-choice tests and how to study well, but parents are not teaching them the most important skills that they need to be confident, happy and clever. Parents can achieve this by teaching practical skills like cooking, sewing and doing other housework. Teaching a child to cook will improve many of the skills that he will need later in life. Cooking demands patience and time. It is an enjoyable but difficult experience. A good cook always tries to improve his cooking, so he will learn to work hard and gradually finish his job successfully. His result, a well-cooked dinner, will give him much satisfaction and lots of self-confidence. Some old machines, such as a broken radio or TV set that you give your child to play with will make him curious and arouse his interest. He will spend hours looking at them, trying to fix them; your child might become an engineer when he grows up. These activities are not merely teaching a child to read a book, but rather to think, to use his mind. And that is more important. 36.Parents in China, according to this passage, ____________. A.are too strict with their children B.are too rich to educate their children C.have some problems in educating their children correctly D.are too poor to educate their children 37 The writer of this passage does not seem to be satisfied with_______. A. the parents’ ideas of educating their children B. the education system C. children’s skills D. children’s hobbies 38 Doing some cooking at home helps children_________. A. learn how to serve their parents B. learn how to become strong and fat C. benefit from it and prepare themselves for the future D. make their parents believe that they are clever B For five days, Edmonton's Downtown Park is transformed into one huge stage where artists are able to share their talents, and where people are able to celebrate and enjoy themselves. Since its beginning in 1980, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival has been commemorating(纪念)the true feeling of what folk music is all about and that's the traditional togetherness (友爱) is felt when that people gather to share stories and feelings through songs. This year will be the sixth year when volunteer Riedel will be offering up her time to the festival. "People coming off a busy spring and summer have a moment of relaxation," Riedel said.



"It's really easy to relax, and it's great seeing family and friends have fun together." These families and friends come from all different kinds of musical tastes. People who take pleasure in Blues are there, so are people who love Bluegrass. This festival does its best to develop everyone's musical interests. With so many years of experience, the festival has become a well-oiled machine, and does whatever it can to make attendees feel as comfortable as possible. There are free water stations throughout the venue(举办地)for people to fill up their travel cups. When people buy food, reusable dishes are given a $2 plate fee, but that is returned when the plate is brought back. The festival has completely sold out of tickets, and in record time. But with big names such as Van Morrison and Jakob Dylan, it’s easy to see how that was going to happen. There is no parking area during the festival, so using the Park & Ride system or Edmonton Transit is highly recommended. A bike lock-up area is provided and will be available from Thursday to Sunday one hour before the gates open until 45 minutes after the gates close. The Edmonton Folk Music Festival begins on Wednesday, Aug.4 with Van Morrison playing the special donation fund(基金)concert, and will finish up on Sunday, Aug.8. 39. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. It’s hard for people to appreciate Blues. B. It costs people a little to fill up their cups from water stations. C. Riedel has volunteered for the festival for at least 5 years. D. People have to pay $2 for a plate of food. 40. We can learn from the passage that______________. A. people can get tickets easily for the festival B. driving one’s own car to the festival is highly recommended C. bikes are available at the festival from Wednesday to Sunday D. the Edmonton Folk Music Festival is highly recommended 41. What would the best title for the passage? A. Folk Music of Blues B. One Festival for All D. Edmonton’s Downtown Park

C. Festival for family Gathering C

Time is not a fixed object. The idea of time in any given culture is largely a product created by beliefs, traditions, and values. In some cases, time is thought of as formless and is based on what is going on at the moment, rather than as a planned object. Others regard time as a machine: a real thing which is fixed, which can be divided into schedules (日程安排) and can be wasted. Similarly, cultures are also likely to think of the passing of time in different ways as well. A society can be moved towards a specific (特定化的) understanding of history. Many cultures, such



as British, Native American, Greek, French, Japanese, and some other Asian cultures, take the past, cultural history, and traditions as having the most importance, and use them as a guide in making present-day decisions. Some cultures see the present moment as the most important. Tradition holds little importance, and planning for the future is not the most important thing, but rather the present time is more valued, and these kinds of lifestyles are relaxed. Other societies can be future-oriented (关注未来的), and place an additional focus on planning and forward movement, and the present activities are treated as a bridge to this future goal. This is the common agreement in the United States. How a person thinks of time can be understood in the way they work together with others. Someone with a focus on the future will hold schedules and times to be very important, as they are necessary for moving on to the next step. However, someone who lives more in the present may consider a certain meeting time as not fixed. In Italy and in many Arab countries, it is normal for people to be 30 minutes late for a meeting. It is different in the United States or Britain, for example, where lateness is accepted only up to 5 or 10 minutes. The concept (概念) of time, and its flexibility (灵活多变), meaning, and even the nature of its existence (存在) is something which is deeply laid in the base of any culture. It is very important when entering into an agreement with someone, whether socially, or in a business setting, to realize that they may have a different idea about the importance of deadlines and schedules. No one can be right or wrong in their own way, but still people can be accidentally insulted (冒犯) as a result of a misunderstanding. 42. From the first paragraph, we can know that ______. A. people think of time as a sign of culture B. people have different opinions about time[来源:Zxxk.Com] C. time is about what’s going on at the moment D. time is either a planned object or a machine 43. The past might be thought of as the most important because ______. A. it helps us to make present decisions。 B. it helps us to plan for the future C. traditions bring us much pride D. old countries have a long history 44. Which example best describes a present-oriented culture? A. Making a plan for tomorrow’s work. B. Planning a tour to the Forbidden City. C. Eating dumplings during Spring Festival. D. Never paying attention to the weather report. 45. What is the best title for the passage? A. The Tradition of Time C. The Concept o f Time B. The Importance of Time D. The Management of Time
