We’re not talking here about the kind of story that    39   , “When I was a kid, I walked to school every day uphill both ways, barefoot in the snow.” Instead, we should choose a story suited (适合) to the child’s    40   , and make eye contact to create “a personal experience”.

    Do you ever wonder why the English have one word for some animals and a different one for their meat? Why do they use pig and pork, cow and beef, and sheep and mutton? To find it out, we have to go back to 1066, when the Norman French invaded England and put a French king on the English throne (王位), which not only changed the government but also changed the language. French became the language of the upper classes of society. And it remained that way for 300 years. Only these high society people could afford to eat meat. As a result, French words like porc (pork) and beouf (beef) came into the English language. However, poor English farmers raised the animals. So the English language retained the words pig and cow from the Native Anglo-Saxon.

    The Norman French added about 10,000 French words to the English language. Seventy-five percent of them are still in use today.

    In French grammar, nouns have either a male or female gender (性别), so adjectives (形容词) take different forms for each. English has only one adjective that does this, and it came from French. The word “blond” describes someone with light-colored hair. “Blond” is used for men, and “blonde” describes women. And they are also nouns.

    Some French words that entered the English language have taken on completely different meanings. The French phrase “a la mode” means “in style”. In English, the phrase means “with the ice cream”. Someone must have decided something eaten with ice cream was in style!

    Now, as you learn English, you’re on your way to learning French!

    【小题1French was once popular among the upper classes of the UK because_____.

        A. too many French moved to Britain

        B. French brought animals with them    

      C. the king and his officials spoke French

      D. the king allowed French to be spoken

    【小题2 Which word can replace the word “retained” in Paragraph 1?

        A. Chose         B. Kept            C. Introduced      D. Give up

    【小题3 Why does an English speaker find French easy to learn?

      A. Because English and French share similar pronunciations.

        B. Because English grammar and French grammar are similar.

        C. Because a large number of English words have French origins.

      D. Because English has great influences on the French language.

    【小题4French grammar is very different from English grammar because ______.

        A. no words have the same pronunciation

       B. all words have the same pronunciation

        C. English nouns have a male or female gender

        D. French nouns have different adjective forms

    【小题5What conclusion can we draw from the text?

      A. Language is closely related to history and culture.

      B. French and English words have nothing in common.

      C. Language is controlled by the upper classes of society.

    There are two types of people in the world. Although they have equal degree of health, wealth and other comforts of life, one becomes happy and the other becomes unhappy. This arises from the different ways in which they consider things, persons, events and the resulting effects upon their minds.

          People who are to be happy fix their attention on the convenience of things: the pleasant parts of conversation, the well prepared dishes, the goodness of the wine and the fine weather. They enjoy all the cheerful things. Those who are to be unhappy think and speak only of the opposite things. Therefore, they are continually dissatisfied. By their remarks, they sour the pleasure of society, offend (冒犯) many people, and make themselves disagreeable everywhere. If this turn of mind was sounded in nature, such unhappy persons would be the more to be pitied. The intention of criticizing and being disliked is perhaps taken up by imitation. It grows into a habit, unknown to its possessors. The habit may be strong, but it may be cured when those who have realized its bad effects on their interests and tastes. I hope this little warning may be of service to them, and help them change this habit.

          Although in fact it is chiefly all act of the imagination, it has serious results in life since it brings on deep sorrow and bad luck. Those people offend many others: nobody loves them, and no one treats them with more than the most common politeness and respect. This frequently puts them in bad temper and draws them into arguments. If they aim at getting some advantages in social position or fortune, nobody wishes them success. Nor will anyone start a step or speak a word to favor their hopes. If they bring on themselves public objections, no one will defend or excuse them, and many will join to criticize their wrong doings. These people should change this bad habit and be pleased with what is pleasing, without worrying needlessly about themselves and others. If they do not, it will be good for others to avoid any contact with them. Otherwise, it can be disagreeable and sometimes very inconvenient, especially when one becomes mixed up in their quarrels.

    【小题1People who are unhappy                   

    A. always consider things differently from others

          B. usually are affected by the results of certain things

          C. usually misunderstand what others think or say

          D. always discover the unpleasant side of certain things

    【小题2The phrase “sour the pleasure of society” most probably means“               .”

          A. have a good taste with social life      B. make others unhappy

         C. tend to scold others openly                  D. enjoy the pleasure of life

    【小题3We can conclude from the passage that__________.

          A. we should pity all such unhappy people

          B. such unhappy people are dangerous to social life

          C. people can get rid of the habit of unhappiness

          D. unhappy people can not understand happy persons

    【小题4If such unhappy persons insist on keeping the habit, the author suggests that people should_______.

          A. prevent any communication with them

          B. show respect and politeness to them

          C. persuade them to recognize the bad effects

          D. quarrel with them until they realize the mistakes

    【小题5In this passage, the writer mainly __________.

          A. describes two types of people

          B. laughs at the unhappy people

          C. suggests the unhappy people should get rid of the habits of unhappiness

          D. tells people how to be unhappy in life
