Unit 1
Part I Pre-Reading Task
Script for the recording:
Ways of learning is the topic of this unit. It is also the topic of the song you are about to listen to, called Teach Your Children sung by Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Teach Your Children
Crosby, Stills and Nash
You, who are on the road,
Must nave a code that you can live by.
And so, become yourselr,
Because the past is just a goodbye.
Teach your cbildren well,
Their lather's hell did slowly go by.
And reed them on your dreams,
The one they picks, the one you'll mow by.
Don't you ever ash them why, ir they told you, you will cry, So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

Appendix I - 93 -

And you, oi tender years,
Can't know the rears that your elders grew by.
Ana so please help them with your youtb,
They seek the truth before tbey can die.
Teacb your parents well,
Tbeir children's bell will slowly go by.
And reed them on your dreams,
Tbe one tbey picks, tbe one you'll know by.
Don t you ever ask them why, ir tbey told you, you will cry, So just look at them and sigh and know tbey love you.



The first part of die song is about how parents can inspire their children through sharing with them their dreams, their hopes for a better life. It starts with advice on how you need a set of rules, "a code diat you can live by," to guide you on the road of life. Only then will you be able to fully realise all that is within you and "become yourself." Therefore, parents need to teach their children well.
And children — "you of tender years" — also have something to teach their parents, for learning is not a one-way street. Children should share their own dreams with their parents so that young and old can get to understand each otiier better.
That said, one should not go too far. For some things are perhaps better left unsaid between parents and children. "Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry." At such mo?ments all that there is left to do is to look at one another and sigh, happy in each otiier's love.

3) The city's importance as a financial center has evolved slowly.
4) His nationality is not relevant to whether he is a good lawyer.
5) The poems by a little-known sixteenth-century Italian poet have found their way into some English magazines.
3. 1) Chinese isn't a subject that can be picked up in a month. You can't accomplish your goal of mastering the language unless you work at it for years. Well, it sounds as if I'm exag?gerating the difficulties, but the fact is I'm only telling the truth.
2) The principal is somewhat disappointed with the performance of the children. From what she has gathered, some of the teaching staff have neglected their pupils. She has just announced that strict work regulations have been made and that they apply to both Chinese and overseas teachers.
3) The teacher-directed and the child-directed approaches to teaching art represent two ex?tremes of opinion. Too many teacher-directed activities cannot be expected to effectively assisLchildren in learning because of the rigid structure. On the other hand, too many child-directed activities may see a curriculum that is totally unstructured and out of con?trol. There are valid reasons to believe a teacher-guided approach would be a superior way

I consider it worthwhile trying to summarize our experience

in learning English. Here I would like to make three relevant points.
First, wide reading should be taken as a priority in the learning process, because it is through reading that we get the most language input. Next, learning by heart as many well-written essays as possible is also very important. On the one hand, rote learning/learning by rote is indeed of little help, but on the other hand, memorization/learning by heart with a good understanding will cer?tainly be of benefit/do good to us. With an enormous store of excellent essays in our heads, we will find it much easier to express ourselves in English. Finally, it is critical that we should put what we have learned into practice. By doing more reading, writing, listening and speaking, we will be able to accomplish the task of perfecting our English.

How I Learn at College
I went to school in a small town near Chengdu and now I am studying law at Fudan University in Shanghai. Passing from one to the other you have to get used to many new things, not the least being the different way of learning.
At school I found my timetable full throughout the day. One lesson came close on the heels of
another with little time to call one's own. At university, in contrast, only a few hours of each day are
taken up with classes or lectures. In the time made available you are expected to learn on your own.
When and where is up to you. At the same time what you are meant to learn shifts from memorizing
masses of facts to developing an ability to understand theories and present arguments. There are, of
course, still facts to be learned. One should not exaggerate the differences. Nevertheless, learning at
university certainly teaches me greater self-reliance and to think for myself. (169 words)

Unit 2
Part I Pre-Reading Task
Script for the recording:
You have heard about Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, haven't you? He came from a poor family, but rose to become one of the most fondly remembered presidents in his country's history. There are many stories about him. Here is one of them.
When Abraham Lincoln was young he worked in a store. As a clerk he proved honest and efficient. One day a woman came into the store and bought some articles. They added up to two dollars and six and a quarter cents, or the young clerk thought they did. The bill was paid, and the woman was entirely satisfied. But the young store-keeper, not feeling quite sure as to the accuracy

of his calculation, added up the items once more. To his dismay he found that the sum total should have been only two dollars. "I've made her pay six and a quarter cents too much," said Abe, disturbed. It was a very small sum, and many clerks would have dismissed it as such. But Abe was too conscien?tious to forget about the overcharge.
"The money must be paid back," he decided. This would have been easy enough had the woman lived just around the corner, but, as the young man knew, she lived two or three miles away. This, however, did not alter the matter. It was night, but he closed and locked the store, and walked to the home of his customer. Having arrived there, he explained the matter, paid over the six and a quarter cents, and returned satisfied. This anecdote won him a new name: Honest Abe.

Script for the recording:
Have you ever heard about the famous American folk musician Bob Dylan? Listen, he's about to sing you a song called The Times They Are A-changin':
The Times They Are A-Changin'
Bob Dylan
Come gather round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you nave grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you

Or you'll sink like a stone

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don’ t speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it s namin’ .
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin' .
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin .
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin' .

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don t criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command

I

- 106 - Appendix I
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-ckangin' .

The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later he fast
As the present now
Will later he past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later he last
For the times they are a-changin' .
The song you have just heard was also written by Bob Dylan when a young man in his early twenties. Like many a young man throughout the ages he felt misunderstood by his parents' genera?tion, a generation he was quite happy to blame for all the ills of the world. He saw a gap between young and old, a gap made wider by different attitudes to change, the young welcoming it, the old resisting it. But change is coming whether we like it or not, coming like a flood that no one can escape. So you had better:
... admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon you'll he drenched to the hone.
For those whose job it is to comment on the news and to predict what will happen next, we live in interesting times.
Come writers and critics

Who prophesize with your pen And keep your eyes wide The chance won't come again

Appendix I - 107 -

But they should not be too quick in predicting what is going to happen. The wheel of fortune is still spinning and those at the bottom of society may find themselves later rising up. And so:
... don't speak too soon For the wheel's still in spin Ana there's no telling who That it' s naming For the loser now Will he later to win
Many of Dylan's early songs were, like this one, protest songs, songs aimed against injustice. And so he warns politicians not to stand in the way of those who are fighting for justice, a fight that will

... soon shake your windows And rattle your walls.
He sees his parent's generation as too ready to criticize their children and unable to understand their hopes and dreams:
Come mothers and lathers Throughout the land And don't criticize What you don't understand
Dylan sees the older generation's way of doing things as outdated. If they are unwilling to change their ways then they should step aside and let a new generation take over. As he says to them:
Your old road is
Rapidly a gin
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'

Perhaps you envy me for being able to work from home on the computer. I agree that the Internet has made my job a lot easier. I can write, submit and edit articles via email, chat with my colleagues on line and discuss work with my boss. With a click of the mouse, I can get all the data I need and keep up with the latest news. But then, communicating through the Net can be frus?trating at times. The system may crash. Worse still, without th

The Internet Will Not Isolate Us from One Another
Since I bought a computer last month, a new world has opened up before me, a world that reaches far beyond my immediate surroundings.
Every morning, the first thing I do after opening my eyes is to access the Internet to look at the top news stories of the day. In the evening, I will again sit by my computer and roam the world. The Internet brings me live World Cup football games and the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. It also enables me to communicate with my friends via email. The other day I got a message from an old classmate whom I hadn't heard from for years. She got my email address just by searching the website of my university! In addition to helping us keep up old ties, it also brings me new friends with whom I meet virtually in chat rooms. We exchange views on topics of interest and pour our hearts out to one another like intimate friends.
So, instead of isolating us from one another, the Internet serves to shorten or eliminate distance,
and helps to bring friends closer. (187 words)

Script for the recording:
Often it is in overcoming hardship that we come to appreciate the value of life. Gloria Estefan wrote this song when she was recovering from a serious road accident that had left her badly injured and near to death. She sings of the hard struggle she had to recover her health:
Up to now for me it's been hands against stone
and of the search to find something that would give meaning to her life:
Spent each and every moment Searching tor what to believe.
But now she is beginning to get better; she can see light at the end of the tunnel. As she says:
Coming out of the dark, I finally see the light now It's shining on me.
It has been a tough road to recovery, but one made easier by the presence of her loved ones:
... I have felt you Near all the way
as she tells them. Ahead life holds out the promise of a new beginning, for:
Starting again is part of the pi an.

Appendix I -119-
She looks forward to this happy in the knowledge that she is loved and cared for. For she feels that with love you can stand up to anything. As she sings:
Forever, forever I stand on the rock or your love Love is all it takes, no matter what we race.
Now let's listen to her as she sings her song Coming Out of the Dark.


Coming Out of the Dark
Gloria Estefan
Why be afraid if I'm not alone
Though life is never easy the rest in unknown
Up to now for me it's been hands against stone
Spent each and every moment
Searching for what to believe
(chorus)
Coming out of the dark, I finally see the light now
It's shinning on me
Coming out of the dark, I know the love that saved me
You're sharing with me
Starting again is part of the plan And I'll be so much stronger holding your hand Step by step I'll make it through I know I can It may not make it easier but I have felt you Near all the way
(repeat chorus)
Forever, forever I stand on the rock of your love

The Change in Mr. Manwaring
There is no doubt about it. Hal Manwaring has definitely changed. And changed for the better. He still limps, of course, still has trouble getting in and out of his car and climbing stairs. He still needs his stick to get about. Everyone feels sorry for him, naturally. They always have, ever since he first started suffering from his disease all those years ago. But, to be honest, in recent years people started to avoid him, he had become so bitter he hadn't a good word to say about anyone or anything. Understandable, you might say, but that didn't make him any better company.
Then, all of a sudden, ever since that big storm we had last month, he picked himself up and
now has a cheerful word and a smile for everyone. Where once you would see him sitting hunched
up on his porch for hours on end, now you see him hopping about all over town. He has even taken
up helping to teach on the adult literacy programme. Just what happened he won't say, but whatever
it was it certainly did him a power of good. (189 words)

To begin with, let's listen to a song called / Am Woman.

I Am Woman
Helen Reddy
1 am woman, near me roar In numbers too big to ignore

Appendix I
And I know too much to go back and pretend Cause I've heard it all before And I've been down there on the floor No one's ever gonna keep me down again
Whoa, yes, 1 am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything (Anything)
I am strong (Strong), I am invincible (Invincible), I am woman
You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
'Cause you've deepened the conviction in my soul
Oh, yes, I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything (Anything)
I am strong (Strong), I am invincible (Invincible), I am woman
I am woman, watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin' arms across the land
But I'm still an embryo
With a long, long way to go
Until I make my brother understand
Whoa, yes, I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain

-126- Appendix I
Yes, I've paid the price, but look now much I gained
If I nave to I can face anything (Anything)
I am strong (Strong), I am invincible (Invincible), I am woman
I am woman
I am invincible, I am strong,

I am woman
I am invincible, I am strong, I am woman
The singer of this song would undoubtedly have agreed with Mao Zedong that women hold up half the sky. Here she gives us the voice of woman, roaring bravely like a lion. She sings of how she is determined not to go back to playing a traditional woman's role and pretending to like it. And it is no good trying to persuade her otherwise, for she has heard all the old arguments too often.
And I know too much to go back and pretend 'Cause I've beard it all before
She has been held down in the past:
And I’ve been down there on the floor But no one is going to hold her back any longer:
No one's ever gonna keep me down again.
Her suffering has taught her wisdom and struggle has made her strong. As she says
You can bend but never break me 'Cause it only serves to make me More determined
Women are supporting one another, standing side by side, "toe to toe", but they still have a long way to go. They are only in the early stages of their struggle to get what they want and to get men to change their ideas.

Women Hold up Half the Sky
"Men are born free but everywhere they are in chains," wrote the French philosopher Rousseau. Being a man he forgot to add that the chains that hold women back are often stronger and heavier. It is true that women are no longer tied to the home, and have entered fully into the world of work. Nevertheless, childbirth and greater responsibilities for childcare can put women at a disadvantage in competition with men. The situation is made all the more difficult by discrimination against women in selection and promotion in certain professions.
There are a number of ways to remedy this situation. Improving women's confidence about
what they can achieve is one. Destroying male prejudices is another. But the answer lies not just in
changing ideas. Material support in the form of improved childcare facilities is needed, as is greater
protection from the law against sexual discrimination. (152 words)

English is the most widely used language in the history of our planet. One in every seven human beings can speak it. More than half of the world's books and three quarters of international mail are in English. Of all languages, English has the largest vocabulary — perhaps as many as two million words — and one of the noblest bodies of literature.
Nonetheless, let's face it. English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, neither pine or apple in pineapple and no ham in a hamburger. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candy, while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.
Sometimes I wonder if all English speakers should be sent to a madhouse. In what other

-132- Appendix I
language do people drive on a parkway and park in a driveway? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?1 Have noses that run and feet that smell?2
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise guy and a wise man3 are opposites? How can overlook and oversee are opposites, while quite a lot and quite a few are alike? How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell the next?
You have to marvel at the glorious messiness of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which your alarm clock goes off by going on.
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, isn't a race at all. That is why when stars are out they are visible, but when the lights are out they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch I start it, but when I wind up this speech I end it.

II. Translation
Though how the English language came into existence remains a mystery, linguists/language scientists now tend to believe that English and most other European languages have descended from a common source; the Indo-European parent language. English was first spoken by the Anglo-Saxons who invaded England in the fifth century. They passed onto us the basic vocabu?lary of English. In its over 15 centuries of development, English has borrowed from other lan?guages massively, and such borrowing has greatly enriched its vocabulary. As settlers landed in America and established the United States as an independent nation, a new variety was added to the English language: American English. Though some people worry that the language is running out of control, many native speakers of English take pride in the tolerance of their language.
