READING COMPREHENSION (20 pts) A. For questions (1) - (5), choose which of the paragraphs A-F fit into the numbered gaps in the following newspaper article. There is one extra paragraph which does not fit into any of the gaps. BABY TALK All those gasps and gurgles that babies make may mean something after all, researchers have found. There is no basis to this strange feeling that your infant is smiling at you, and smiling because he knows you're his mother. He might look as wise as the ages when he gazes into your eyes - but face up to the facts. There's nothing in there, unless we count the blank slate. And don't read too much into his babbling either. He's just learning how to use his face muscles. That's what my doctor told me when I took my baby for his check-ups. I doubted this, but I knew science was on her side so I kept my opinion to myself. (1) This is not just hopeful theorizing. Thanks to new technology that allows scientists to study living brains, the bank of evidence is growing fast. Another great advance was made last week with the publication of research by neuroscientist Laura Ann Petitto of Dartmouth College. The aim of the study was to challenge the traditional understanding of early language development, which holds that babies must develop motor skills before they can begin to connect sounds to meanings. (2) They looked at the way babies moved their mouths when babbling (making sounds with a consonant- vowel repetition) and contrasted this with the movements when they smiled or made non-babbling noises.

They studied five English infants, five French infants and five Spanish to be sure they weren't studying mouth movements specific to one language. (3) 'The mouth is being carved out depending on the function of what's coming out', Petitto explains. 'And this function could only occur if different parts of the brain are participating in the control of different functions'. Her researchers deduced that 'the right side of the face - used for smiling - is controlled by the left hemisphere of the brain, where the emotional control centers are located.' But babbling 'is a left- side mouth function and controlled by the right side of the brain - the centre for speech." 'What this tells us', says Petitto, 'is that language processing starts far earlier than we ever thought and without much language experience. As young as five months, the brain is already discriminating between a purely physical response and an oral one.' And that is not allt can do. According to other researchers in the field, babies can 'distinguish human faces and voices from other sights and sounds and prefer them.' Although they are born short-sighted, they can see people and items clearly at a distance of about 30 cms. Their preference for stripes and other patterns shows they are imposing order on their perceptions in early infancy. Long before they can crawl, they can tell the difference between happy features and sad features. (4) They can grasp simple arithmetic by using the same capacity, according to Petitto. 'It is well established that infants look longer at things that are unexpected or surprising to them. In a recent study, the researchers built up the expectation that a puppet would jump, say two times. When the infants lost interest, they continued to show one group of infants what they had already been watching. Another group was shown a puppet that jumped three times. Petitto explains, 'The infants looked longer at the puppet when it jumped three times, showing they had detected the change in number.' (5) But this is not the end of the story, as the nature side of the nature/nurture divide has claimed for so long. Despite this standard capacity, babies depend on their vast reserves of innate knowledge in the way you and I depend on the programs we put into our computers. What matters most is what we do with these programs, and it's the same with babies.

They're born with powerful learning tools that allow hem to explore and learn about the world around hem. And what they learn goes on to determine the way their brains are wired, and how they think. A. But they depend on more than innate knowledge and learning abilities. People instinctively want to help babies learn. A lot of this tuition is, they claim, unconscious and unwilled. The typical example would be the stern businessman who, if left holding the baby, lapses into baby talk. B. The results showed uniformity in all cases. When the babies smiled, they opened the left sides of their mouths, using more muscles on the left side of the face. When they were making 'non-babbling' noises they used the middle of the mouth, and when they babbled they pulled down on the right side of the mouth, using more right-side muscles. C. Now at last it is science that is having second thoughts. It turns out that babies know a lot more than our best minds previously suspected. If they smile, it may well be because they recognize your voice. When they babble, they are probably not speaking nonsense but practicing speech. D. This is borne out by the fact that they can imitate these same expressions, and by the time they're old enough to pick up a phone they can mimic what they've seen others doing with it. This means they can learn how to use things just by watching people. E. So much for the blank slate then. Much of this research would seem to disprove many of our oldest and fondest assumptions, not just about speech but about how people are like us and how we are like other people. It appears that our brains all start out with the same approach to learning and development. F. Petitto and her team take a different view. 'When a child babbles, it's not just trying to get control over its facial muscles,' she says. Babies are 'literally trying to say the sounds' they hear, and trying to make sense of 'the patterns of sounds in the world around them.' B. Read the following passage and choose the best answer (A, B, C or D) In most aspects of medieval life, the closed corporation prevailed. But compared to modern life, the medieval urban family was a very open unit: for it included, as part of the normal household, not only relatives by blood but a group of industrial workers as well as domestics whose relation was that of secondary members of the family.

This held for all classes, for young men from the upper classes got their knowledge of the world by serving as waiting men in a noble family: what they observed and overheard at mealtime was part of their education. Apprentices lived as members of the master craftsman's family. If marriage was perhaps deferred longer for men than today, the advantages of home life were not entirely lacking, even for the bachelor. The workshop was a family; likewise the merchant's counting house. The members ate together at the same table, worked in the same room, slept in the same or common hall, converted at night into dormitories, joined in the family prayers, participated in the common amusements. The intimate unity of domesticity and labor dictated the major arrangement within the medieval dwelling-house itself. Houses were usually built in continuous rows around the perimeter of their gardens. Free-standing houses, unduly exposed to the elements, wasteful of the land on each side, harder to heat, were relative scarce: even farmhouses would be part of a solid block that included the stables, barns and granaries. The materials for the house came out of the local soil, and they varied with the region. Houses in the continuous row forming the closed perimeter of a block, with guarded access on the ground floor, served as a domestic wall: a genuine protection against felonious entry in troubled times. The earliest houses would have small window openings, with shutters to keep out the weather; then later, permanent windows of oiled cloth, paper and eventually grass. In the fifteen century, glass, hitherto so costly it was used only for public buildings, became more frequent, at first only in the upper part of the window. A typical sixteen-century window would have been divided into three panels: the uppermost panel, fixed, would be of diamond-paned glass; the next two panels would have shutters that opened inwards; thus amount of exposure to sunlight and air could be controlled, yet on inclement days, both sets of shutters could be closed, without altogether shutting out the light. On any consideration of hygiene and ventilation this type of window was superior to the all-glass window that succeeded it, since glass excludes the bactericidal ultra-violet rays. 1. The urban, unit described in the passage A. consisted of people related by blood.

B. was made up of workers, servants and family members. C. excluded domestics and craftsmen. D. was composed of members of the same class. 2. How did young noblemen receive their education? A. They were taught in their own homes. C. They were sent to other household. B. They received training in practical skills. D. They were educated with other young men. 3. According to the writer, why were there few free-standing houses? A. Building land was expensive. B. Such houses were costly to construct. C. Such houses suffered the effects of bad weather. D. There was no room left for a garden. 4. Where could you have expected to find glass used in the fourteen century? A. in small windows in private houses B. in buildings designed for public use C. forming one part of a window protection D. behind protective shutters 5. In the writer's opinion, all-glass windows were not an improvement because they were less A. healthy B. attractive C. economical D. hard-wearing ERROR CORRECTION (10 pts) Identify and correct the ten mistakes in the following passage: 000F Many Americans belong to the alumni club of the college or university they attend. Members take part in social activities and rise money for the university. A state university, which anyone can attend, usually has a large alumni club. Less people can afford to attend private universities like Harvard, so being a member of the Harvard club is associated with wealthy and social position. Some students join Greek societies, societies named after Greek letters. Fraternities and sororities are for men or women respectively. Members of academic fraternities and sororities study the same subject or are the university's most outstanding students. Phi Beta Kappa is the most famous of it. Most Greek societies are social organizations and their members, that usually come from rich families, live in a fraternity or sorority house. After they leave for university, many members continue to be active in the organization. Schools, colleges and universities in Britain also have societies for former students, generally calling old boys or old girls associations. WRITING (60 pts) A.
