Passage One
A couple of months ago, I went to a department store to buy a few things for the house. I needed a set of curtains for the living room, two table lamps, a rug and several cushions. I asked them to deliver the things as soon as possible, but they said that they were unable to send them out until 20 days later. After about 3 weeks, I received only the curtains and table lamps. I was a little disappointed when I didn`t receive all the items I had bought. But nevertheless, I was eager to see what the curtains and lamps looked like. I first opened the package with the curtains. I had bought a lovely light blue, and instead they had sent me a horrible dark purple. Well, you can just imagine how angry I was. Then I opened the boxes with the lamps. They were exactly what I`d ordered. But one of the lamp shapes was damaged. The next thing I did was to telephone them to complain. They promised to come to pick them up immediately and also to replace them with the correct order. It has been two weeks since my complaint.

Passage Two
In the high mountain country outside the city of Toluker, there stands a prison. This prison is quite different from other prisons in the world. The guards, except for two at the main gate, are not armed. There are many remarkable things about Toluker prison. For example, of the 15,000 individuals who have been in prison at Toluker, less than two percent have got into trouble again with the law. Men in the open prison are free to find work on the outside but must go back to prison each night. On weekends they are allowed to go home. When most other prisons are still sending criminals back into society. Toluker is returning people who stand on their own feet and contribute to society. In 1974, a prisoner called Barb Crook moved to the open prison. A year later, he left Toluker for the last time. He was then nearly forty six and had been in prison for fourteen years. He got a job as construction worker in the city, remarried and was regarded as a useful person of his community. If you ask Bob why Toluker works, he would say "Because they believed in me when I was at my worst."

Passage Three
Sports and games are very useful for character training. In their lessons at school, boys and girls may learn about such virtues as unselfishness, courage, discipline and love of one`s country. But what is learned in books cannot have the same deep effect on a child`s character as what is learned by experience. As most of the pupils` time is spent in classes studying lessons, the ordinary day school can`t give much practical training for their lives in the future. So it is what the pupils do is the spare time that really prepares them to take their places in society as citizens when they grow up. If each of them learns to work for his team, and not for himself on the football field, he will later find it natural to work for the good of his country instead of only for his own benefit.

Questions 18 to 20 are based on the passage you have just heard.
18.
 What is the speaker`s opinion about learning from books?
A) It’s good for training one’s character but not good for one’s health.
B) It cannot prepare pupils to be good citizens.
C) It has less effect on a child’s character than sports and games.
D) It’s as important as after-class activities.
正确答案:C
19.
 Why isn`t ordinary day school unable to give pupils much training for their future lives?
A) Because pupils there have to spend most of the time studying.
B) Because the school authorities insist on traditional ways of teaching.
C) Because the school authorities have neglected discipline.
D) Because pupils there are too fond of playing.
正确答案:A
20.
 What can help to develop a child`s love of his country according to the speaker?
A) Practical work.
B) Collective activities.
C) Teacher’s encouragement.
