Chinese wedding tea
ceremony is a tradition that dates back to many centuries ago and is still
widely practiced at modern Chinese weddings on the wedding day, either at home
or at the banquet.
It is an official ritual
to introduce the newlyweds to each other’s family, and is also a way to show
respect and appreciation (感谢) to their parents. Tea is likely served also because it is the
national drink of China.
When the tea itself is
served, the newlyweds kneel in front of their parents, serving tea to both
sides of parents, as well as elder close relatives. Parents give their words of
blessing and gifts to the newlyweds. During tea presentation, a “good luck
woman” would say lucky phrases to bless the newlyweds and the parents. This “good
luck woman” should be someone who is blessed with
a good marriage, healthy children and husband, and living parents.

a long history of more than 2,000 years, the Great Wall is now considered to be

Shanhaiguan Pass in Hebei Province to Jiayuguan Pass in Gansu Province. The
wall is about 7.8 meters high, and it is 6.5 meters wide at the base and 5.8
meters at the top. The Great Wall was first built during the Warring States
Period (476-221B.C.) to prevent people in the north from attacking. Then the

Some people seem to have a knack（诀窍）for learning languages. They can pick up new vocabulary, master
rules of grammar, and learn to write in the new language much more quickly than
other people. They do not seem to be any cleverer than others. What makes language
learning so much easier for them? Perhaps if we take a close look at these
successful language learners, we may discover a few techniques which make
language learning easier for them.
Firstly, successful language learners are independent
learners. They do not depend on the book or the teacher; they’d rather discover
their own way to learn the language than wait for the teacher to explain
everything. They try to find the sentence patterns, the rules and the meaning
of new words by themselves. They are good guessers. They look for clues and form
their own conclusions. When they guess wrong, they guess again. They try to
learn from their mistakes.
Besides, successful language learning is active
learning. Therefore, successful learners do not wait for a chance to use the
language, they loo0k for such a chance. They find people who speak the language
and they ask these people to correct them whenever they make a mistake. They
will try anything to communicate. They are not afraid to repeat, they are
willing to make mistakes and try again. When communication is difficult, they
can accept information that is inexact or incomplete. It is more important for
them to learn to think in the language than to know every word’s meaning.
Finally, successful language learners are learners
with a purpose. They want to learn the language because they have an interest
in the language and the people who speak it. It is necessary for them to learn
the language in order to communicate with these people and to learn from them.

A. wait for a

D. try to avoid

14. Why do successful language

want to get good marks in exams.

interested in the language and the people who speak it.

Colors are sometimes called hot, cold, or neutral（中性的）. Red and yellow are said to be
hot colors because they make a room feel warmer and the walls nearer to us than
they really are. We say that blue and green are cold because they give us the
opposite feeling. A neutral color is one that does not seem to affect our
feelings. Brown and grey are both neutral, and they may also be mixed with hot
or cold colors to reduce their effect on our feelings.
We can begin to see the importance of color
selection. Although red might be perfect for a restaurant, it would be wrong
for an art exhibition room, where we want to look at the paintings, not at the
walls behind. Because of its effect on size, white could be used to make a
small room seem larger, or dark blue to make a large one seem smaller.
Another way that we sometimes speak of colors is to
say that they are loud or quiet. Again we are talking about the feeling that
colors give us. We use sound to express how much colors catch our attention.
16. If a man wants to make a room warmer, which color will he choose
for the walls?
A. Green. B.
C. Black. D.
17. Which color can be used with blue to reduce its effect on our
A. Yellow. B.
C. Grey. D.

A. restaurants B.
C. an exhibition room D.
the walls in a living room
19. People would paint a small room into white because ____________.
A. white makes a room brighter
B. white makes a room prettier
C. a room seems larger in white
D. a room seems smaller it white
20. “Loud” and “quiet” colors give people ____________.
A. the cooler feelings
B. the opposite feelings
C. the warmer feelings
D. the similar feelings
