    Task 1                                Language and culture
      Three foreign gentlemen came up to a bus–stop in London. About five minutes later the bus
which they waited for came along. They prepared to get on it. Suddenly there was a noise behind
them. People rushed on to the bus and tried to push them out of the way. Someone shouted at them.
The three foreign gentlemen looked puzzled(迷惑) and embarrassed(使困惑) no one had told
them about the British custom of waiting for a bus so that the first who arrives at the bus–stop is
the first person to get on the bus.
      Learning the language of a country is not enough. One should know as much as possible
about the manners and customs of different countries. You’ll be surprised how different they can
be from your own. For example, in India, people consider it impolite to use the left hand for
passing food at table. In many places you might see a person shaking his head at another to
express he is disagreeing, but in Bulgaria a shake of the head means “Yes” and a nod “No”. In

considered impolite.

Task 2
      Last July, my 12-year-old car died on California’s Santa Ana Freeway. It was an hour before
sunset, and I was 25 miles from home. I couldn’t reach anyone to pick me up. So I decided to take
a bus. Not knowing the routes, I figured I’d just head east.
      A bus pulled up, and I asked the driver how far she was going. “Four more lights”, she said.
There was another bus I could take from there. This clearly was going to be a long night.
      She dropped me off at the end of her route and told me which bus to look for. After waiting
for 30 minutes, I began to think about a very expensive taxi ride home. Then a bus pulled up.
There was a lighted number. It was out of service. But the door opened, and I was surprised to find
that it was the same driver. “I just can’t leave you here”, she said. “This isn’t a nice place. I’ll give
you a ride home.” “You’ll drive me home in the bus?” I asked. “No, I’ll take you in my car,” she
      As we drove from the station to her car, she began telling me a story. A few days earlier, her
brother had run out of gas, a good gentleman picked him up, took him to a service station and then
back to his car. “I’m just passing the favor along,” she said.
      When I offered her money as a thank-you, she wouldn’t hear of it. “That wouldn’t make it a
favor,” she said. “Just do something nice for somebody. Pass it along.”
41. Why did the writer say that he would have a long night?
    A. He wondered how long he had to wait for the next bus.
    B. No driver would give him a ride.
    C. He didn’t know the routes.
    D. He perhaps would have to take a taxi.
42. Judging from its context, the place where the writer waited for the second bus was
            A. very quiet and peaceful
            B. dark without street lights
            C. neither clean nor beautiful
            D. a little unsafe
        43. Why did the writer change his mind after waiting for 30 minutes at the end of the routes?
            A. No bus would come at the time.
            B. A taxi ride would be more comfortable.
            C. He became impatient and a bit worried.
            D. He knew the driver would never return.
        44. The bus driver hoped that the writer __________.
            A. would do as she did
            B. would keep her in memory
            C. would give the money to others
            D. would do her a favor
