Unit 1

At a dinner party the guests and their hosts were involved in a heated discussion , or rather an argument concerning the question of whether women had as much self-control as men .As they argued, signs appeared to one of the guests that a cobra was present in the room . While his first impulse was to jump back ,he knew that this would be a mistake;so he urged the other diners in a commanding tone to hold still without telling them why .Shorty , The cobra emerged on the veranda ; and the man ran quickly to the door to slam it shut . It was soon discovered that the cobra had crawled across the foot of the hostess,who kept calm , not uttering a sound.Thus the conclusion of this crisis laid bare the fact that women have as much self-control as men.


As more states require high school students to pass competence exams before graduating , evidence suggests that cheating among students is also on the rise. Many educators are concerned about dishonest behavior among examinees, and have launched a number of campaigns to control cheating . In spite of their efforts , however , cheating seems to be increasingly contagious among students in both high schools and universities . Numerous arguments have been made about the cause of this widespread problem . Some experts believe it is linked to changes in American society as a whole since , unlike earlier times, modern American is largely a nation of strangers . Additionally, moral values are not taught or reinforced as they were in “the good old days.”


1.While I was waiting to enter university, I saw advertised in a local newspaper a teaching post at a school in a suburb of London about ten miles from where I lived.

However, three days later a letter arrived, asking me to go to Croydon for an interview. It proved an awkward journey: a train to Croydon station; a ten-minute bus ride and then a walk of at least a quarter of a mile . As a result I arrived on a hot June morning too depressed to feel nervous.

. 在我等着进大学期间 我在一份地方报纸上看到一则广告 说是在离我住处大约十英里的伦敦某郊区 有所学校要招聘一名教师。我因为手头很拮据,同时也想做点有用的事,于是便提出了申请,但在提出申请的同时我也担心自己一无学位二无教学经验得到这份工作的可能性是微乎其微的。

然而 三天之后 却来了一封信 叫我到克罗伊登去面试。这一路去那儿原来还真麻烦 先乘火车到克罗伊顿车站 再乘十分钟的公共汽车然后还要至少步行四分之一英里。结果。我在六月一个炎热的上午到了那儿 因为心情非常沮丧 竟不感到紧张了。
