Superstar and I It’s common that many students are crazy about those singers and actors. However, liyundi, a pianist, is the superstar in my heart. He is a man of few words
and he even looks like the greatest pianist—Chopin. When listening to his music , I can get rid of everything noisy around. What’s more, I can feel his strong love for music. Rome wasn’t built in one day. He achieved the great success through huge effort. I can learn from him that we should never give up to realize our dreams.
Superstar and I Her name first appeared as a joke then like a wonder. She is Susan Boyle, the superstar in my heart. Although she’s not beautiful, her voice and spirit moved all the audience, including me. The song ’I dreamed a dream’ that she sang touched everyone’s heart who had a dream and wanted to realize it. She taught me how to go on my dreams as well as never to give up. She is like a sunshine that gives me hope. Where there is a will, there is a way.

Most people who enjoy movies do not really care how they are made. They just want to enjoy a good story. Movie producer and director George Lucas wants people to see the best made movies. So, his latest movie Star Wars was made without using film. Star Wars was made using digital cameras. A digital camera does not use traditional film. It captures
images on videotape. The images recorded on videotape are the placed in a computer. George Lucas says that using digital cameras permits him to have much more control over the final product. For example, the image can be changed after it is placed in a computer. An expert can change color, add or take out objects, add people or beings who are not real. Much of what is seen in the new movie Star Wars is not real. Huge buildings, spacecraft and alien beings from other worlds were produced in a computer. Movie experts say digital technology is the real future of the motion picture industry. A theater will no longer have to wait days or weeks to show a new movie. Theaters will be able to receive copies of new movies by linking computers. Or they will use small computer disks to get a copy of the movie.

film copies are of much better quality than other filmed movies. Critics say the new digital technology is very costly. Many theater owners will not buy the new technology, yet many of the people who worked on the new movie Star Wars say they would not like to work with film again.

As the US wakes up to China’s rising status as an
economic and strategic competitor, US parents are urging their children to learn Chinese, reports Julian Borger. The US is being swept by a rush to learn Mandarin—from wealthy New York mothers hiring Chinese nannies（ 保 姆 ）
for their small children to a defence department education project in Oregon. The forces driving Mandarin’s momentum（势头）are parental ambition for children facing a future in which China is almost certain to be a major player, and the government is worried about that America may get left behind in that new world. The bottleneck is the supply of teachers. Mandarin instructors are difficult to import and difficult to train. There are visa problems in bringing over teachers from China but the biggest barrier is cultural. Teaching in Asia is generally done by rote and the change to western, interactive styles of instruction can be a large leap. On the other hand, it requires enormous firmness for westerners to learn a language like Chinese, with its thousands of written characters. According to the
Asia Society in New York, all of America’s teacher-training institutions turn out only a couple of dozen homegrown Mandarin teachers. One way to ease the shortage is to find native Mandarin speakers and use fast-track methods to train them. However, the majority of Chinese-Americans grew up speaking Cantonese, the dialect spoken in Hong Kong, where their parents came from. Many are themselves signing on as Mandarin students at the private language schools springing up on the west coast. 1. Why are US parents so eager to make their children learn Mandarin? A. They are urged by the government to do so. B. They are afraid to be left behind by other parents. C. They believe China will play a major role in the future world. D. They are just carried away by Mandarin’s momentum. 2. The underlined word “rote” in the 4th paragraph probably refers to a teaching pattern which
. A. focuses on memory work B. allows the students to think independently
C. is centered on interactive skills
D. puts much emphasis on examinations 3. What is the main problem in the Mandarin’s momentum in the US? A. The lack of qualified teachers. B. The cultural barrier between the east and west. C. The Americans’ lack of firmness. D. The many written Chinese characters. （C）
