高中英语外研版必修3Module 1 Section Ⅰ Introduction & Reading — Pre-reading


The Eiffel Tower was built for the International Exhibition of Paris in 1889 in honor of the 100th anniversary (周年纪念) of the French Revolution. The Prince of Wales, later King Edward of England, opened the tower. Of the 700 works in a design competition, Gustavo Eiffel’s was chosen. However, not everyone agreed with the choice and many people tried to stop its construction. It was the world’s tallest building until 1930. During its lifetime, the Eiffel Tower has seen a few strange scenes, including being climbed by a mountaineer in 1954, being parachuted (跳伞) off in 1984 by two Englishmen, and being ridden down from the first level by a journalist on a bicycle in 1923. However, even if its birth was difficult, it is now completely accepted and must be listed as one of the symbols of Paris itself. The tower has three platforms (平台). The top platform has a bar and the office of Gustavo Eiffel. From its platforms — especially the highest — the view of Paris is wonderful. It is generally agreed that one hour before sunset, the view is at its best. The Eiffel Tower at night is one of the greatest sights of Paris and shouldn’t be missed. The golden lights show the beauty of the steelwork in a way that can’t be seen in the daylight.
