A The House of 1000 Mirrors Long ago in a small, faraway village, there was a place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he hounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and firendly. As he left the House, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often." B In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again." All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet? C But the teacher cried The six-year-old John was terribly spoiled . His father knew it, but his grandma doted on him. He hardly left her side. And when he wanted anything, he either cried or threw a temper tantrum. Then came his first day of school, his first day away from his grandmother's loving arms. When he came home from school his grandma met him at the door. "Was school all right?" she asked, "Did you get along all right? did you cry?" "Cry?" John asked. "No, I didn't cry, but the teacher did!" D 天气预报 Weather Predict A film crew was on location deep in the desert. One day an old Indian went up to the director and said, "Tomorrow rain." The next day it rained. A week later, the Indian went up to the director and said, "Tomorrow storm." The next day there was a hailstorm. "This Indian is incredible," said the director. He told his secretary to hire the Indian to predict the weather. However, after several successful predictions, the old Indian didn't show up for two weeks. Finally the director sent for him. "I have to shoot a big scene tomorrow," said the director, "and I'm depending on you. What will the weather be like?" The Indian shrugged his shoulders. "Don't know," he said. "Radio is broken." 天气预报
一个电影摄制组在沙漠深处工作.一天,一个印度老人到导演跟前告诉导演说"明天下雨."第二 天果然下雨了. 一周后,印度人又来告诉导演说,"明天有风暴."果然,第二天下了雹暴. ‘’印度人真神,"导演说.他告诉秘书雇佣该印度人来预报天气. 几次预报都很成功.然后,接下来的两周,印度人不见了. 最后,导演派人去把他叫来了."我明天必须拍一个很大的场景,"导演说,"这得靠你了.明天天气 如何啊?" 印度人耸了耸肩."我不知道,"印度人说,"收音机坏了." E Let me take it down An elephant said to a mouse ,"No doubt that you are the smallest and most useless thing that I have ever seen ." "Please ,say it again . Let me take it down ." the mouse said . " I will tell a flea what I know." 为我所用 一头大象对一只小老鼠说:“你无疑是我见过的最小、最没用的东西。” “请再说一遍,让我把它记下来。”老鼠说。“我要讲给我认识的一只跳蚤听。” F Who was the first Man? A teacher said to her class: "Who was the first man?" George Washington," a little boy shouted promptly. "How do you make out that George Washington was the first man?" asked the teacher, smiling indulgently. "Because, " said the little boy, "he was first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen." But at this point a larger boy held up his hand. "Well," said the teacher to him, "who do you think was the first man?" "I don't know what his name was," said the larger boy, "but I know it wasn't George Washington, ma'am, because the history book says George Washington married a widow, so, of course, there must have been a man ahead of him." 谁是第一个男人? 有个老师问班上的学生: “谁是第一个男人?” “乔治?华盛顿,”一个小男孩当即叫道。 “你怎么知道乔治?华盛顿是第一个男人呢?”老师问道,宽容地微笑着。 小男孩说:“因为他是战时第一,和时第一,国人心中第一。” 这时一个大点儿的男孩举起手来。
“那么,”老师对他说,“你认为谁是第一个男人呢?” “我不知道他的名字,”大点儿的男孩说,“但我知道不是乔治?华盛顿,老师。因为历史书上 说,乔治?华盛顿娶了一个寡妇,所以在他前面肯定还有一个男人。” G A Different Kind Of Audience 不同的听众 Al Smith was governor of New York State. He was a famous man. He was born very poor on the East Side of New York City. He had little education. He worked very hard and won great success. One day, as governor, he was visiting the state prison at Sing Sing. Sing Sing is one of the largest prisons in the United States. The head of the prison asked Mr. Smith to say some thing to the prisoners. Mr. Smith had never spoken to this kind of audience before.He did not know how to begin. Finally, he said, “My fellow citizens…. Then the mem bered that when a man ” goes to prison he is no longer a citizen. He began again.“My fellow prisoners….” That did not sound right, so he said:“Well, anyway, I'm glad to see so many of you here today.” 不同的听众 阿尔?史密斯是纽约州的州长。他是个名人。他出生在 纽约市东部的一个穷苦家庭。 他读书不多,但是他工作勤奋, 终于获得了很大的成就。 有一天,作为州长,他访问星星州立监狱。星星监狱是全美国最大的监狱之一。监 狱长请史密斯对囚犯们说几句话。 史密斯先生以前从来没有对这一类听众讲过话。 他不知道 该怎样开口。 最后,他说:“我亲爱的公民们……”接着他想起一个人蹲进监狱就不再是公民了。 他重新开始:“我亲爱的囚犯们……”那听起来也不对劲儿,于是他说:“噢,无论如何,今天 在这儿见到你们这么多人,真是太高兴了。” H Four friends live in a small town. Their names are John, Miller, Smith and Carte. They all have different jobs. One is a policeman, one is a cook, one i s a farmer, and one is a doctor. It‘s Tuesday afternoon. John’s son breaks his leg and John takes him to the doctor. The doctor‘s sister is Smith’s wife. The farmer isn‘t married. He has a lot of hens.
Miller often buys eggs from the farmer. The policeman sees Smith and M iller every day for they are neighbours. Now who is the policeman? Who is the cook? Who is the farmer? Who i s the doctor?
  1. John is a . A. doctor B. farmer C. policeman D. cook

  2. Miller is a . A. doctor B. policeman
  3. Smith is a . A. farmer B. policeman C. cook D. doctor C. cook D. farmer

  4. Carter is a . A. doctor B. policeman C. cook D. farmer「答案与解析」这是一篇推理
性文章,要求根据所给出提示,猜出各自的职业。 以上 4 题答案分别为 C、A、C、D.有一 定难度,且需要一定的推理,现分析如下:
  1. 因为 John 的儿子腿摔断了要去看医生,故可推知 John 不是 doctor.
  2. 因为医生的妹妹是 Smith 的妻子,故 Smith 不是 doctor(否则兄妹结婚,不合 情理)。
  3. 由于 farmer 没有结婚,所以 Smith 和 John 都不是 farmer (因为 Smith 有妻子,John 有儿子)。
  4. 因为警察每天看到 Smith,所以 Smith 不是 policeman.

  5. 由以上分析可知,Smith 不是 doctor,也不是 farmer,也不是 policeman, 所以只能是 cook.
  6. 由于 Miller 常从 farmer 处买鸡蛋,所以 Miller 不是 farmer.
  7. 由以上分析可知,John, Miller 和 Smith 都不是 farmer,所以 Carter 一 定是 farmer.
  8. 由于警察每天除看到 Smith 外,还看到 Miller,所以 Miller 不是警察。既 然他不是警察,而且前面已分析出 Smith 是 cook,Carter 是 farmer,所以 Miller 一定 是 doctor.
  9. 最后剩下的 John 便是 policeman.
