I think the most terrible thing in life for my little brother is getting up in the morning. He is almost sick when my mother calls, "Herbert! It's seven o'clock! Get up!"
Herbert answers, "I'm coming!" and goes right back to sleep. I'm not at all like my brother. I don't like to go to bed at night but I don't mind getting up in the morning. I usually wake up before my mother calls me. I jump out of bed and go into the bathroom to take a shower. I get dressed, brush my teeth, comb my hair, and get ready to go downstairs for breakfast as soon as my mother calls.
But not Herbert. He just sleeps. A military band (军乐队) in our bedroom could not wake him up. I call him and say, "Get up! Mum will be up here to pull you out of bed if you don't get up immediately!"
But he just sleeps. After calling a few more times my mother has to come upstairs and pull Herbert out of bed. It's that way every day with my little brother. Perhaps some day he'll learn to get up on time, but I really don't think so.

One of the things to be learnt in a foreign language is guessing all the time what kind of thing to come when listening to someone talking. People do this all the time in their own language, so it is necessary (必要的) to do this in a foreign language, too. Here are some examples.

  1. "What's the matter?" "I went to a party last night, so I…"

  2. "I feel so tired these days."" I think you'd better…"

  3."Of course, she never stops talking. She is one of the most…"
You can see from the above three examples that the context (上下文) helps a lot in understanding what is being talked about. So "guessing "is very important in understanding English, especially (尤其)spoken English.

  1.This passage tells us mainly about .
A. the importance of "guessing " in learning a foreign language
B. how to guess what one is going to talk about
C. some examples of right guessing
D. how important it is to guess all the time

  2.from the context, we can see maybe the finished answer in EXAMPLE I is .
A. "… so I didn't have a good time." B. "…so I went to bed very late."
C. "…. So I felt unhappy." D. "… so I got up very early."

  3. Maybe the finished answer in EXAMPLE 2 is .
A. "I think you'd better have a good rest and take good care of yourself."
B. "I think you'd better have something to drink."
C. "I think you'd better get some help from your friends."
D. "I think you'd better be more careful."

  4. Maybe the finished answer in EXAMPLE 3 is .
A. "… she is one of the most famous film stars."
B. "…she is one of the most beautiful women."
C. "… she is one of the most famous speakers."
D. " .. she is one of the most talkative women."

  5. From the passage we can infer (推断) that guessing is in learning a foreign language.
