    Since the end of World War I(WWI) in 1918, Canadians, and millions of others around the world have paused at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to honour the sacrifice our soldiers have made in different ways, fighting for the freedoms that we all enjoy today.

    Known as Remembrance Day, the day originated as a tribute to the soldiers of WWI, a dark period for our young country, which claimed the lives of over 60,000 military personnel and civilians and over 16 million dead worldwide. As there are no more surviving soldiers of WWI, today we rely on the wisdom and words of those soldiers who fought in the wars that followed and this day now also recognizes their heroic contribution. They tell us to always remember what those brave souls fought for, and all they ask in return is that we never forget.

    That’s why we wear the red poppy(罂粟花); that’s why when we see a soldier in uniform we should stop him or her and say “Thank you”; that’s why we take a pause from our busy lives for two short minutes today to honor that request. Yet this message is fading away, year after year. Take for example the terrible decision to allow parents to excuse students from Remembrance Day ceremonies at school. Not only is this disrespectful, it distances the student from his or her classmates.

    It is difficult to understand why any Canadian parent would want to remove their child from the time-honored tradition of reading the poem in Flanders Fields, while a wreath of poppies is laid. It is more important than ever to teach school-aged children about our history, no matter how violent it was. Sheltering them from the realities of war is a great disservice. Understanding why conflicts happened, or happen today can help shape choices and decisions they make as adults.

    Of course, because we live in a free society, we cannot force an individual to do something. It is unfortunate, but some parents now have their child “opt-out” of the services. These people should be reminded they are free to make such choices only because of the men and women the rest of us are remembering.

    21 Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a Remembrance Day activity today?

    A. Stopping at 11a.m. to remember the war dead.

    B. Listening to stories told by WWI soldiers.

    C. Wearing a red poppy to show respect.

    D. Showing gratitude to soldiers in uniform.

    22What can we learn from the passage?

    A. War history is too violent for school children

    B. The writer was once a soldier in the Canadian army

    C. Few students are willing to take part in Remembrance Day ceremonies.

    D. More parents are keeping their children away from frightening war stories.

    23 The underlined word “It” in the last paragraph probably refers to_______.

    A. the death of so many soldiers in wars

    B. the fact that there were so many wars after WWI.

    C. people’s ungratefulness for the freedom they have.

    D. removing children from Remembrance Day events.

    24 The writer believes that ______.

    A. the sacrifice of the soldiers should always be remembered.

    B. Remembrance Day is becoming less important for soldiers.

    C. school no longer think Remembrance Day is necessary.

    D. people should be forced to learn about the realities of war.

    Mary Allen was my best friend- like the sister I ever had. We did everything together : piano lessons, movies, swimming, and horseback riding.

    When I was 13, my family moved away. Mary and I kept in touch through letters and we saw each other on special occasions- like my wedding and Mary’s.

    Every year, it costs British students more and more to attend university. Students are graduating with larger and larger debts. __36__

    In 2006, the UK government started to allow universities in England and Wales to charge British students tuition fees. More than 80 percent of students in England and Wales now take out a student loan(贷款)in order to go to university. They use the loan to pay for tuition fees, books and living expenses. The average student in England and Wales now graduates from university with debts of around £12,000. Students of medicine usually have debts of more than £20,000. That is a lot of money. It means graduates cannot afford to buy a house for many years. They even struggle to pay rent on a flat, because they have to start paying back the student loan after graduating. If you start to earn over £15,000 a year, the government takes repayments directly from your monthly salary. __37___

    You might think that a British person with a degree will find it easy to get a well-paid job. However, most people in white-collar jobs seem to have a degree these days, so there is a lot of competition. Also, British companies tend to value work experience over a piece of paper. Like everyone else, graduates usually have to start at the bottom and work their way up. That can be very frustrating for them, since they are often over-qualified for the work they are doing. __38___ Therefore, life after university ends up being quite disappointing for a lot of graduates.

    __39__ Even before the credit crisis started, the BBC stated: “The number of British students at UK universities has fallen for the first time in recent history, It looks like the figures will continue to decline, since loan companies are now telling some students that there are no loans available for them.

    By contrast, things are now easier for students from other countries coming to study in the UK, since the value of the British pound has fallen. More international students come to Britain each year. The British universities offer more and more of the available places to richer international students rather than poorer British students. __40__

    A. Some British people fear that, one day, there won’t be any university places left for British students at all.

    B. Most British students expect to have to get a loan, part-time job or summer job.

    C. So is a university degree really worth it?

    D. Although the interest on student loans is quite low, it begins as soon as the student receives the loan.

    E. Is it any surprise, therefore, that the average British person does not leave their parents’ home until they are 30 years old?

    F. All of the above is beginning to make British people question whether a university degree is really worth the money.

    G. While at university, they have dreams of getting an exciting, challenging job.
