[03:23.44]Section B   Passage One
[03:27.88]Some of the notebooks George Washington kept as a young man are still in existence.
[03:34.62]They show that he was learning Latin.
[03:38.75]was very interested in the basics of good behavior in society
[03:44.78]and was reading English literature.
[03:48.94]At school,he seemed only to have been interested in mathematic.
[03:54.50]In fact his formal education was surprisingly brief for a gentlemen and incomplete4.
[04:02.16]For unlike other young Virginian gentleman of that day.
[04:07.80]he did not go to the College of William and Mary in the Virginian capital of Williamsburg.
[04:15.74]In terms of formal training them
[04:19.87]Washington contrasts sharply5
[04:23.73]with some other early American Presidents such as John Adam
[04:30.08]Thomas Jefferson and James Madison
[04:34.52]In later years,Washington probably regretted his lack of intellectual training.
[04:41.55]He never felt comfortable in a debate in Congress
[04:45.99]or on any subject that had not to do with everyday  practical matter
[04:53.15]And because he never learned French
[04:57.20]and could not speak directly to the French leaders
[05:01.74]he did not visit the country he admired so much.
[05:06.99]Thus,unlike Jefferson and Adams,he never reached Europe.
[05:13.26]11. What reason does the author give for Washington not going to college?
[05:20.21]12. Why did Washington feel uncomportable in Congress debates?
[05:27.05]13. What is the reason why Washington didn't visit France?
[05:33.71]Passage Two
[05:36.67]The dog,called Prince,was an intelligent animal and a slave to William.
[05:43.30]From morning till night, when Williams was at home.
[05:47.74]Prince never left his sight practically ignoring all other members of the family.
[05:55.08]The dog had a number of clearly defined6 duties
[06:00.05]for which Williams had patiently trained him
[06:04.30]and,like the good pupil he was.
[06:08.54]Prince lived for the chance to demonstrate his abilities
[06:13.47]When williams wanted to put on his boot,
[06:17.73]he would murmur7 "boots," and within seconds,
[06:22.28]the dog would drop them at his feet.
[06:28.83]At nice every morning
[06:32.28]Prince ran off to the general store in the village
[06:36.93]returning shortly not only with Williams' daily paper
[06:42.39]but with a half-ounce packet of Williams' favourite tobacco.
[06:47.85] John rhiney's Mixed. A gun-dog by breech.
[06:53.28]Prince possessed8 a large soft mouth specially9 evolved for the saft carrying of hunted creature
[07:00.73]so the paper and the tobacco came to no har
[07:05.17]never even showing a tooth mark.
[07:09.11]Williams was a railway man,an engine driver,
[07:13.76]and he wore a blue uniform which smelled of oil fuel.
[07:18.80]He had to work at odd times-"days" "late days" or "nights"
[07:25.26]Over the years,
[07:28.21]Prince got to know these periods of work and rest and knew when his master would leave the house and return.
[07:36.25]and the dog did not waste this knowledge.
[07:40.51]If Williams overslept as he often die
[07:45.27] Prince barked at the bedroom door until he woke
[07:49.92]much to the annoyance10 of the family.
[07:53.97]Oh his return,Williams' slippers11 were brought to him,
[07:58.93]the paper and tobacco too if previously12 undelivered.
[08:04.39]A curious thing happened to Williams during the snow and ice of last winter.
[08:10.32]One evening
[08:13.17]he slipped and fell on the ice pavement somewhere between the village and his home.
[08:19.80]He was so badly shaken that he stayed in bed for three days
[08:25.65]and not until he got up and dressed again
[08:30.22]did he discover that he had lost his wallet containing over fifty pound
[08:36.47]The house was turned upside down in the search
[08:40.91]but the wallet was not found
[08:44.64]However,two days later - that was five days after the fade 
[08:50.21]pince dropped into williams' hand the wallet:very muddy,stained and wet,
[08:57.34]though the little case still contained fifty-three pound
[09:02.77]Williams' driving license13 and a few other paper
[09:08.23]Where the dog had found it no one could tell
[09:12.78]but found that he had recognized it probably by the faint oily smell on the worn leather.
[09:20.04]14. What does the passage tell us about gun-dogs?
[09:26.78]15. Which of the following is true?
[09:31.64]16. Why did the dog think it was Williams' wallet?
[09:37.99]Passage Three
[09:40.94]Brenda Linson never goes anywhere without an empty spectacles14 casa .
[09:47.21]It is as vital to her as her purse. Yet,she doesn't wear glasses.
[09:54.05]The reason she can't do without it is that she can't read and she can't write.
[10:00.89]If ever she gets into any situation
[10:05.86]where she might be expected to do either of these things
[10:11.00]she fishes around in her bag for the spectacles casa
[10:16.46]finds it's empty and asks the person concerned to do the reading for her.
[10:23.20]Until a few months ago hardly anybody knew about her problem.
[10:29.13]Her husband didn't know and her children didn't know.
[10:34.38]The children still don't.
[10:38.15]She had any number of tactics15 for hiding her difficulty for example
[10:44.39]never lingering16 near a phone at work.
[10:48.54]in case she had to answer it and might be required to write something down.
[10:54.71]It has never occurred to the children that their mother cannot read.
[11:00.45]She doesn't read them stories
[11:03.90]but then their father doesn't either
[11:07.87]so they find nothing surprising in the fact.
[11:12.00] Similarly they just accept that Dad is the one who writes the sick notes and reads the school report
[11:20.15]Now that the elder boy Tom is quite a proficient17 reader.
[11:25.69]Brenda can skillfully get him to read any notes brought home form school simply by asking
[11:33.55]"What's that all about, then?"
[11:36.89]Brenda's husband never guessed the truth in ten years of marriage.
[11:42.46]For one thing
[11:45.20]he insists on handling all domestic18 correspondence19 and bills himself.
[11:51.97]A salesman for a large company
[11:56.02]he travels a great deal and so is not around so much to spot the truth.
[12:02.55]While he's away,Brenda copes with any situations by explaining that she can't do anything
[12:10.28]until she's discussed it with her husband.
[12:14.15]Brenda was very successful in her job until recently.
[12:19.29]For the last five years
[12:22.74]she had worked as a waitress at an expensive restaurant
[12:27.81]and had eventually been promoted to head waitress.
[12:32.85]She kept the thing a secret there too
[12:37.00]and got over the practical difficulties somehow
