How many hours does it take to be fluent in English?

There are plenty of people in the UK for whom even basic English is a problem.

According to the survey,726,000 people in England and Wales said they could not speak

English well, and another 138,000 said they did not speak it at all.

Ling,40,who arrived five years ago from China, found it difficult to learn English.

¨When I came here l was pregnant and s0 1 was at home for the next three years. It took

me longer to learn as l was very busy with the children.” Eventually she was able to begin

taking classes and now speaks good conversational English. But even with classes, it can

be a long process to pick up the language.

Age is the most important factor in language acquisition, says Mila Vulchanova,

professor of linguistics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.¨ There is

a sensitive period in language learning, which is biologically determined, with an onset at

birth and a decline around puberty. So the younger the immigrant, the better. Since this

decline is only gradual, teenagers are at an advantage over adults.” he says.

There are  a  number of systems for grading English. The government expects

immigrants to reach "ESOL Entry 3" or "B1 level" in Scotland, before they can be

granted citizenship. It's equivalent(相当的)  to being able to hold a confident

conversation and-it might take 360 hours of study to achieve.

George Osborne said in June following the spending review that welfare claimants

(申请者)who don't speak English will have their benefits cut if they fail to attend

language courses.

Huan Japes, deputy chief executive of English UK, a trade body for language

colleges, says a rule of thumb is 360 hours-120 hours for each of three stages-to get to

the standard the government expects benefit claimants to reach.

But many of the people who attend courses are visiting students rather than people

settling in the UK. Immigrants tend to have very varied levels of education.

" Using 120 hours( for each stage of English fluency) is a rather traditional approach

to course book learning," says Dr Elaine Boyd, head of English language at Trinity

College London. "If someone is really highly motivated, they can learn really quickly. It's

common for children under the age of 11 to be very immersed and be fluent in about six

months. "

21. The example of Ling is given to show that _ .

Ait's important to speak fluent English

Bmany immigrants attend English classes

Cit's difficult to learn English well

Dmany immigrants can't speak English in England

22. What does Mila Vulchanova mainly stress?

AThe necessity of working hard at English.

BThe function of the sensitive period.

CThe advantages of children's learning English.

DThe importance of starting learning English early.

23. What Dr Elaine Boyd says suggests that .

A120 hours is a standard that is a little low

B120 hours is a standard that is too high

CEnglish fluency can be easily achieved

DEnglish fluency can hardly be achieved

24. The author develops the passage mainly by _'

Ausing survey data

Busing experts' views

Cgiving examples of English learners

Dlisting the facts of English learning

Sleepwalking is a sleep disorder. Your child will rise from bed and walk or engage in

other activities that they would normally do when they are awake. Their eyes will be open

but they will appear to be in a dream-like state, and will probably not answer when you

talk to them, although they may carry out conversations. Sleepwalking can last a few

seconds ,a few minutes, or more.

Sleepwalking can be an indication that certain parts of the brain may not be relaxing

properly at bedtime. It can be caused by illness or fever, tiredness, stress or anxiety. It is

thought to occur in the beginning, slow-wave stages of non-rapid eye movement sleep

before dream sleep. It may be related to the lack of magnesium (镁) , and it is very

possible that hormonal(荷尔蒙的)changes in body could cause it.Certainly a child is

more likely to be a sleepwalker if one of his parents suffered, too .

Sleepwalking itself is not dangerous and is generally not a sign of any more worrying

problems. But if your child sleepwalks regularly, you have to take safety measures to make

sure that he doesn't hurt himself while sleepwalking. Makes sure that any doors can't be

opened by a child, and lock doors to the cellar, kitchen and other dangerous places.

Check each night before lights go out for sharp objects or, indeed , anything on the floor

which your child could trip over or hurt himself on.

A child may sleepwalk once and never sleepwalk again. Others may sleepwalk once a

month or so. Still others may sleepwalk almost nightly. If you are worried you should

consult your doctor.

33. What does the second paragraph mainly tell us?

AThe concept of sleepwalking.

BThe causes of sleepwalking.

CSome ways to help sleepwalking.

DThe behaviors during sleepwalking.

34. Which of the following is true according to the passage?

ASleepwalking itself is not dangerous.

BChildren who sleepwalk may answer when you talk to them.

CIf your child sleepwalks regularly, you can just leave him alone.

DSleepwalking is related to the lack of sleep.

35.1t can be inferred from the passage that____.

Asleepwalking may be passed down in a family

Bdrugs that could cure sleepwalking have been developed

Cduring a normal sleep, a person never opens his eyes

Dmost doctors consider sleepwalking as a serious problem

As the capital of China's Shaanxi Province, Xi'an's long history was properly summed

up by our English-speaking guide: "If Xi'an is the grandmother of cities, Beijing is a

youth and Shanghai is just a baby in the womb. "

However, it was not until 1974, following the chance discovery of the Army of

Terracotta Warriors by well-digging farmers, that Xi'an was once again pushed onto the

international map. Three decades later, the local government is pouring funds into the

tourism sector. Ancient monuments and museums are being restored, and various copies of

Buddhist and Tang heritage are being constructed to help Chinese tourists rediscover their

national heritage.

One of those ancient monuments is the Big Wild Goose Pagoda-Xi'an's most sacred

(神圣的) monument-which was built in 652 by the monk Xuanzang ,who travelled

across India for 18 years and returned with a precious collection of Buddhist sacred texts.

In 1966,the Red Guards burnt the pagoda's scriptures, silk wall hangings and other relics

in a bonfire that raged all night. But that destruction has largely been forgotten as tourists

flock to the newly restored pagoda. The only original remainders-the empty shell of the

seven-storey pagoda-light up at night, standing out in the city's skyline.

Xi'an is also displaying the glories of the ancient Tang Dynasty, with a 165-acre

Tang Paradise Theme Park that is visited by flocks of tourist groups. Although every bit of

this Tang heritage is recreated, it is artistically pleasing, landscaped with ponds and

lakes, classical gardens, bridges, palaces and pavilions. Explore the vast area on a golf

cart, hopping on and off to see shortened operas from the Tang Dynasty days, laser shows

on the lake, highly structured man-made waterfalls, as well as murals and statues of

historical figures ,philosophers and poets.

A 36km drive northeast takes you to Xi'an's most famous attraction, the Army of

Terracotta Warriors. They were made to order in 221BC by the first emperor of China, Qin

Shi Huangdi, who used the forced labour of 700,000 subjects to create a mausoleum(陵

庙) guarded by an entire army.

29. From the passage we can learn that a large sum of money of the local government in

Xi'an is being ploughed into .

Arestoring the monuments

Brestoring the Pagoda

Ctourism industry

Dexploring the history

30. How many historical sites in Xi'an have been referred to in the passage?





31. What can we learn from the fourth paragraph about the Tang Paradise Theme Park?

AVisitors are pleased with the survivals from the Tang Dynasty.

BThe natural waterfalls in it are very attractive.

CIt is totally recreated but is artistically pleasant.

DVisitors can appreciate the full Tang Dynasty operas.

32. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?

AMake a visit to ancient sites at once.

BChina's ancient capital rises again.

CTravel to the Army of Terracotta Warriors.

DTake a view in the modern city.

Can't sleep? You turn all night never seeming to get comfortable, never seeming to

feel like you are even close to sleep? I bet you've tried a few different solutions too, warm

milk or maybe even sleeping pills. The reason why you can't sleep could be because of

many different things.  _  However, if you want simple solutions to sleep better then

the following steps can help you get that great night's sleep:

1Sleep on your side.

Sleeping on your side is an acquired taste if all you have been doing is stomach

sleeping. The side position is best for your neck and for improving breathing which is a

common cause for frequently waking.  _

2Find the right pillow.

Finding the right pillow is vitally important.  _ In the side sleeping position the

pillow should fill the entire space between your neck and the mattress(床垫).Your head

should not be tipped up or down but be in line with your spine(脊椎). 3 No digital entertainment before bed.

Avoid any forms of digital entertainment at least one hour prior to bed. Digital

entertainment means movies, TV, Xbox, computer/laptop use, even a kindle.  _ Trying reading a few pages of non-fiction instead. 4 _  When you eat and got to bed shortly after what happens is that your stomach is still

full of food. This prevents you from breathing properly and can lead to a very disturbed



AHaving a sound sleep is my dream.

BWait three hours after eating.

CThere are five steps to have better sleep.

DStay away from all forms.

EAlways get a check from a health care provider if you have specific concerns.

Li Hua and Wang Hai are students of Senior Three. They all work hard but

have different learning methods. Li Hua listens to her teachers attentive and tries

to catch everything the teachers say. She spends more time doing her homework.

It is certain what she can go to bed earlier and always keeps energetic in the day.

However, Wang Hai had a different way of learning. He likes to stay up late

at the night, so he often feels sleepy in class. Thus, he misses lots of key point and

it usually spends him more time to finish his homework, that makes it difficult for

him to concentrate what he is doing. I prefer Li Hua's learning method.
