八、阅读理解。 A Some things can carry messages, for example, a sign at the bus stop helps you to know which bus to take. Signs on the door tell you where to go in or out. Have you ever noticed that there are a lot of signs around you and that you receive messages from them all the time? People can communicate on many other ways. An artist can use his drawing to tell about beautiful mountains, about the blue sea and many other things. Books are written to tell you about all the wonderful things in the world and also about people and their ideas. Books, magazines, TVs, radios and films all help us to communicate with others. They all help us to know what is going on in the world and what other people are thinking about. 1.

Take the sentence “ How do you do?” as an example. If you look up each word in t he dictionary, one at a time, what is your translation? It must be a wrong sentence. Language do no just have different sounds, they are different in many ways. It’s important to master (掌握) the rules for word order in the study of English, too. If the sentences put words in a wrong order, the listeners can’t understand the speakers’ sentences easily. Sometimes when the order is changed, the meaning of the sentence doesn’t change. Let’s see the difference between the two pairs of sentences.“ She only likes apples.” “ Only she like apples.”“ I’ve seen the film already.” “ I have already seen the film.” When you are learning English, you must do your best to get the spirit (精神) of the language and use it as the English speakers do. 1.
