Language upon Thames is a school aimed to offer help with language learning B “Long time no see” is a very interesting sentence. When I first read this sentence from an American friend's email, I laughed. I thought it was a perfect example of Chinese. Obviously, it is a word-by-word literal translation of the Chinese greeting with a ruled English grammar and structure. Later on, after being told it's a standard American greeting. I was too thrilled to believe her. Her words couldn't convince me at all. So I did a research on Google. To my surprise, there are over 60 thousand web pages containing "Long time no see". This sentence has been widely used in emails, letters, movies, newspapers or any other places. Though sort of informal, it is part of the language that American use daily. However, if you type this expression in Microsoft Word, it will tell you that the grammar needs to be corrected. Nobody knows the origin of this Chinglish sentence. Some people believe that it came from Charlie Chan's movies. In the 1930s, Hollywood movie-makers successfully created a famous Chinese detective named “Charlie Chan” on wide screens. Detective Chan likes to teach Americans some Chinese wisdom by quoting Confucius. “Long time no see” was his trademark. Soon after Charlie Chan, “Long time no see” became a popular phrase in the real world with thanks to the popularity of these movies. Some scholars refer to America as a huge pot of stew( 混杂物 ). All kinds of culture are mixed and they change the color and taste of each other. American Chinese, though a minority ethnic group in the United States, is also contributing some changes to the stew! Language is usually the first thing to be influenced in the mixed stew. You can have some other examples than adoptions from Chinese, such as pizza form Italian, susi from Japanese. There is a long list! Americans don't just simply borrow something from others. They will modify it and make it their own, so you wouldn't be surprised to find a tofu and peanut butter hamburger in a
restaurant. Since Americans appreciate Chinese culture more and more nowadays, I believe more Chinese words will become American English in the future. 55. The writer himself felt surprised at A. reading “Long time no see” B. knowing the expression is standard American English C. seeing the literal translation of the expression D. finding out all the Americans use the expression daily 56. The word “trademark” underlined probably means A. design of a manufacture's goods B. Confucius' s words C. Charlie Chan's creation D. representative of Charlie Chan 57. According to the passage, it can be inferred that A. detective like the expression “Long time no see” B. Hollywood made “Long time no see” popular C. the huge pot of stew greatly affects all kinds of languages D. all kinds of culture can be changed in the huge pot of stew 58. Which of the following is Not true? A. Informal language sometimes doesn't go with grammar and structure. B. Language in Microsoft system is ruled by grammar and structure. C. “Long time no see” has been used in at least four media mentioned in the passage. D. There are four languages mentioned to be adopted in the American stew. C People in Hong Kong speak a rich mixture of languages. Hong Kong was a British colony for more than 156 years before it was returned to Chinese control in 1997. English was the only official language until 1994. Most people in Hong Kong today speak Cantonese, but Mandarin and other dialects also are heard, and English as the British used is still widely spoken and taught here. Now however, many people are choosing to learn English as it is spoken in the United States. Victor Chan, for example, has children who attend school called Nature EQ on Saturday and Sunday, and they are learning to say words the American way. Mr. . . .
Chan says he wants his sons to learn American English, because he plans to send them to the United States for further study. Nature EQ is one of a growing number of schools in Hong Kong that offer American English classes. Frankie Ng opened the school 17 years ago, at that time, he had only 40 students. Today, the school has 350 students, and it does not have space for any more. Mr. Ng says American English is clear and defined, he says it is easy to teach and easily understood. That, however, is not the main concern of the children. Public schools in the former British colony still teach mostly British English. But the number of private language schools teaching American English is growing. In Hong Kong's Tseung Kwan O district, for example, the "American English Workshop school" had 20 students a week when it opened one year ago. Today, it has more than 180 each week. Some observers say American English is becoming the language of international business. Increased contact with American culture, like movies, television programs, computer games and the Internet is spreading American expressions and accents in areas other than business. But for now, people hearing English in the streets of Hong Kong are mainly hearing traditional British English. "We can understand both, but for what we speak, we speak with the British accent," said one local woman. "The British is better I think," commented a local man. 59. Which of the following is TRUE about the language spoken in Hong Kong? A. English is still the only official language now. B. British English is still widely spoken and taught at present. C. Most people are learning American English now. D. All people in Hong Kong can speak Cantonese. 60. What can we learn from the examples shown in this passage? A. Views are different on American English. B. Not all people like American English. C. American English is becoming more popular. D. American English is better than British English. 61. What does the underlined word "it" refer to?
A. British English. B. American English. C. American English Workshop school. D. Hong Kong. 62. What can we infer from the passage? A. American English and British English will go hand in hand in the future. B. American English will be more popular than British English. C. British accent is clear and easy to study. D. Local people can't understand both of the two kinds of English. D While there are certainly many more varieties of English, American and British English are the two varieties that are the most common. Generally, it is agreed that no one version is "correct". However, there are certainly preferences in use. The most important rule of thumb is to try to be consistent in your usage. If you decide that you want to use American English spellings then you should be consistent in your spelling (i.e. The colour of the orange is also its flavour— color is American spelling and flavour is British), this is of course not always easy—or possible. The following guide is meant to point out the principal differences between these two varieties of English. In British English the present perfect is used to express an action that has occurred in the recent past that has an effect on the present moment. For example, I've lost my key. Can you help me look for it? In American English the following is also possible: I lost my key. Can you help me look for it? In British English the above would be considered incorrect. However, both forms are generally accepted in standard American English. Other differences involving the use of the present perfect in British English and simple past in American English include already, just and yet. British English: I've just had lunch./I've already seen that film./Have you finished your homework yet? American English: I just had lunch. Or I've just had lunch./I've already seen that film. Or I already saw that film./Have you finished your homework yet? Or did you finish your homework yet? There are two forms to express possession in English. Have or have got: Do you have a car?/Have you got a car?
He hasn't got any friends./He doesn't have any friends. She has a beautiful new home./She's got a beautiful new home. While both forms are correct (and accepted in both British and American English), "have got (have you got, he hasn't got, etc.)" is generally the preferred form in British English while most speakers of American English employ the "have (do you have, he doesn't have etc.)". 63. What is the main purpose of author's example "The colour of the orange is also its flavour" (in Paragraph 1)? A. To try to be consistent in your usage. B. To use American English spellings. C. To point out the principal differences. D. To express preferences in English. 64. What is mainly discussed in Paragraph 2? A. Learning of new words. B. Differences of new words. C. Importance of the present perfect. D. Use of the present perfect. 65. Which are the forms to express possession in English? A. Have or have got. B. Have you got or he hasn't got. C. Do you have or he doesn't have. D. Have or do have. 66. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. American and British English are the two varieties of the least common. B. An action that has occurred in the recent past is the present perfect. C. In British English "I lost my key. Can you help me look for it?" is wrong. D. Most speakers of American English always prefer to use the "have got". 答案 一、适当形式填空(单句适当形式) 1. convinced 2. have been complaining 3. acquiring 4. approval
