You have asked me for suggestions on how to get along in the United States. It is difficult to give advice, but I have found the following "dos" and "don'ts" helpful.
As a21,it isn't easy to find anyone to talk to in a big city. However,here are some sugges-tions. First, get or borrow a dog! Walk him several times a day! Americans love dogs and usually stop to talk to anyone with a dog. Then, try to eat in a cafeteria. People generally22the same ta-bles and will sometimes talk to you if they see that you are a23. Next,take your dirty24to a laundry( 洗衣店) ! It takes about an hour to wash and dry, and many people wait there. They often pass the25talking to the other customers.26ask for information from a woman,if you are a 27,and from a man,if you are a woman. It seems to get28results for a reason I can't un-derstand. Learn the29:" Please" ," Thank you", and "You're welcome" before you come and use them all the time! They usually work like magic(魔術).
There are some things you shouldn't do. Don't30the truth when people ask "How are you?" They only31the answer to be " Fine". Never ask people their32—especially women! Everyone wants to be young. Don't tell heavy people they are33. Tell them they are losing weight. Everyone here wants to be34. Don't be late for appointments (約會) ! When someone says six o'clock,be sure to be there by six. Americans respect35and expect everyone to be "on time".
Above all, don't worry! Just follow my advice and bring a lot of money, you will get along. I hope I have been of some help to you.

Our eating habits are very important for good health and a strong body. There are times when most of us would rather eat sweets and ice-cream than meat and rice. Sweets and ice-cream are not bad if we eat them at the end of a meal. If we eat them before a meal,they may take away our appe-tite( 食欲). It is important for us to eat our meals at the same time each day. When we feel hungry,it is a sign that our body needs food. When we feel angry or excited, we may not want to eat. A long time ago,in England, some judges used to decide whether a man was telling the truth by giving him some dry bread. If the man could not eat the bread, it showed that he was telling lies. Although this seems very strange and rather foolish, it is indeed a very good way of finding out the fact. A man who is worrying about something has difficulty in eating anything dry. Because he is worrying, he loses his appetite and does not want to eat.

Zhao Wenxuan, a film star from Taiwan has been fond of seeing films since his childhood. He would sometimes go to the cinema for the same film four or five times. He also enjoys literature ( 文學) and art. Before he took the film acting as his career( 職業), he has been on the staff( 工作人員 )of an airline in Taibei. His change of job to acting was quite by chance.
One day, he came across in the paper an advertisement for a leading actor to appear in the film named Wedding Feast. Full of excitement, he answered the job ad by telephoning the director of the film, Mr. Li An. It was this telephone call that had changed all his life. At last the director decided him to be the very person for the role. That he could be chosen owed much to his good command of English, natural naanners and low pay for this work in the film.
The film Wedding Feast proved to be a hit. It won the German Golden Bear Award and entered the competition for one of the Oscar Academy Awards. Also, it was the first Taiwan film that was per-mitted to be shown in the U. S. Thanks to the film Zhao Wenxuan became popular in Taiwan,Hongkong and Southeast Asia.
In 1994, Mr. Zhao acted as leading role in the Hongkong film Red Rose and White Rose, in which many film stars like Ms. Chen Chong from U. S. and Mr. Ye Yuqing from the local area took parts in it. This film was named for 10 prizes of the Taiwan Golden Horse Prize and at last it was awarded five prizes for the best play, actress and music. Zhao has regarded the film as one of his favorite films since he stepped into the acting circle.
Since 1993, Mr. Zhao has taken part in the shooting of 13 films, most of which are highly thought of.
Mr. Zhao said that Taiwan should think to cooperate ( 合作 ) much with the mainland in the film producing industry and it would benefit each other. In recent years he often came to the mainland for film shooting. He has just completed his performance in the film Night ~ Dawn directed by Mr. Sung Kee Chiu,a director from Hong Kong.

Copernicus was born in Torun, Poland, on February 19,1473. Little is known about his early life except that his father died when he was 10. An uncle adopted (收養)him, his two sisters, and his brother. The uncle saw to it that the two boys received a good education. Copernicus went to the Uni-versity of Cracow. There he studied such subjects as Latin, mathematics, and astronomy. It was proba-bly at that time that he changed his Polish name, Niklas Koppernigk, to the Latin form of Nicolaus Copernicus. In 1496 Copernicus went to Italy, where he spent the next 10 years studying at various universities.
In Copernicus' time people still believed that all things--the sun, the stars, and the planets--moved around the earth. It was an old belief that few men had ever questioned. Aristotle had based his theory of astronomy on this belief. Because the Church had long been the center of learning, the theory was also linked to religious(宗教的) beliefs.
In 1506 Copernicus returned to his homeland. A few years later he began to work for the Church. All those years Copernicus carried on his work in astronomy. He had just the most basic equipment and, like other scientists of his day, made observations with only his eyes. Still, using mathe-matics and logic( 邏輯), Copernicus worked out a different theory,which held that the planets went around the sun.
Copernicus did not announce his ideas. He did not want to make trouble. But he could not hide the scientific truth. So he talked about his theory with his friends, who strongly advised him to have his work published. His great book, On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Bodies, appeared at the very end of his life. Copernicus saw the first copy on the day he died,May 24,1543.

A.He had two brothers and a sister.
B.He used to be called Niklas Koppernigk.
C.He lost his father soon after he was born.
D.He spent 10 years at the University of Cracow.
第44題單選 ( )From the passage we can see that astronomy is __________.
A.the life experience of great men

C.the scientific study of natural objects in space
D.the theories developed by scientists of old times
第45題單選 ( )Copernicus developed his theory __________.
A.using various telescopes
B.based on Aristotle's beliefs
C.through observations and reasoning
D.under the encouragement of his friends
第46題單選 ( )The writer of the passage wants us to know that __________.
A.Copernicus did not tell about his discovery until the day of his death

D.shortly before he got back to Poland Copernicus started to work for the Churc
Before a new type of airplane goes into service, every part of it is tested again and again. But there are two tests that are more important than all the others.
The first is called the "tank test". A modern airplane must fly very high in the sky. Air must be pumped into the plane so that the passengers can breathe. The metal structure ( 結構 ) of the plane has to be very strong for this reason. When the plane is filled with air, the air presses against the skin of the plane inside. The pressure ( 壓力 ) on a small window is like a huge foot that is trying to get out. If a small part of the plane were to fail, the plane would explode in the sky. To test the structure of the plane, the plane is lowered into a huge tank or container of water. Then it is filled with air. The pressure inside the plane is greater than it. ever will be when it is high up in the air. Finally, there is an explosion. This does not cause so much damage inside the water tank as it would anywhere else.
Engineers can discover which part of the plane has broken. Then that part is made stronger.
The most dangerous test happens when the new plane is going through test flights in the air. The test pilot must find out exactly what happens when the engines(發動機) are all shut off at once. The plane begins to fall like a stone. It is the pilot's job to find out how he can get control of the plane again, These two tests are examples of how planes are made safe before they ever carry passengers.
第47題單選 ( ) By doing the "tank test", the engineers can find out__________.
A.the amount of air in the plane
B.the strength of the plane structure
C.the pressure inside and outside the plane
D.the power of the airplane engines
第48題單選 ( )What will happen to the plane under the "tank test"?
A.It will be broken.

A.The plane may explode in the air.
B.The pilot may lose control of the plane.
C.The engines may be damaged.
D Too much air may get into the plane.
第50題單選 ( ) What might be the most suitable title for the text?
A.Two Important Tests on Airplanes
B.The Importance of Flying Safely
C.The Danger of Testing Airplanes
D.How Airplanes Are Made and Tested
