  You probably don't know how to answer that question---unless you happen to be one

  ofthe about 430 people in the world who speak a language called Matukar Panau. Then you

  would know it means "What are we doing?" Matukar Panau is one of the world's rarest

  languages. It is spoken in just two small coastal villages in Papua New Guinea.

  Several years ago, David Hamson, a language expert, didn't know much about

  Matukar Panau either. No one had ever recorded or even studied its words and rules. With

  so few speakers, the language risked disappearing soon. It was endangered.

  Hamson didn't want that to happen to Matukar Panau. So in 2009, he set out for Papua

  New Guinea. His goal: use modern technology to help the remaining speakers preserve

  their native tongue.

  But Matukar Panau is far from the only language facing loss. Studies suggest that by

  the end of this century, nearly half of the 7,000 languages now spoken worldwide could

  disappear. They're in danger partly because the only people left speaking them are elderly

  adults. When those individuals die, their language will die with them. In addition, children

  may discard a native language and instead use more common global languages, such as

  Chinese, English or Spanish.

  In the United States alone, 134 native American languages are endangered. "language

  hotspots" exist all over the world. These are places with endangered languages that haven't

  been recorded. They include the state of Oklahoma, pockets of central and eastern Siberia,

  parts of northern Australia and communities in South America.

  24. What did Harrison go to PaPua New Guinea for?

  A. Learning their native language

  B. Helping preserve their endangered tongue

  C. Leaning their modern technology

  D. Teaching the natives a new language

  25. The underline word "discard" in Paragraph 4 means .

  A. hear of B. pick up C. get rid of D. learn about

  26. The last two paragraphs imply that endangered languages are _ .

  A. dying quickly in Siberia B. becoming a worldwide problem

  C. popular in some special places D. some native tongues

  27. According to the passage, the author is _ about the endangered languages.

  I told my friend Graham that I often cycle two miles from my house to the town centre

  but unfortunately there is a big hill on the route. He replied, "You mean fortunately." He

  explained that I should be glad of the extra exercise that the hill provided.

  My attitude to the hill has now changed. I used to complain as I approached it but now

  I tell myself the following. This hill will exercise my heart and lungs. It will help me to lose

  weight and get fit. It will mean that I live longer. This hill is my friend. Finally I comfort

  myself with the thought of all those silly people who pay money to go to a gym and sit on

  stationery exercise bicycles when I can get the same value for free. I have a smile of

  satisfaction as I reach the top of the hill.

  Problems are there to be faced and overcome. We cannot achieve anything with an

  easy life. Helen Keller was the first deaf and blind person to gain a university degree. Her

  activism and writing proved inspirational. She wrote, "Character cannot be developed in

  ease. Only through experiences of suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared,

  ambition inspired and success achieved."

  One of the main determinants of success in life is our attitude towards adversity. From

  time to time we all face hardships, problems, accidents and difficulties. Some are of our

  making but many are no fault of our own. While we cannot choose the adversity, we can

  choose our attitude towards it.

  Douglas Bader was 21 when in 1931 he had both legs cut off following a flying

  accident. He was determined to fly again and went on to become one of the leading flying

  aviators in the Battle of Britain with 22 aerial victories over the Germans . He was an

  inspiration to others during the war. He said, "Don't listen to anyone who tells you that you

  can't do this or that. That's nonsense. Make up your mind, you'll never use crutches or a

  stick, and then have a go at everything. Go to school, and join in all the games you can. Go

  anywhere you want to. But never, never let them persuade you that things are too difficult

  or impossible."

  The biographies of great people are full of examples of how they took steps to

  overcome the difficulties they faced. The common thread is that they did not become

  depressed. They chose their attitude. They chose to be positive. They took on the challenge.

  They won. Nevertheless, there is still the problem of how you change your attitude towards

  B. why it is important to keep optimistic in face of trouble

  C. what steps to take to change your attitude towards the difficulty you face

  D. what great people have in common

  31. Which of the following can best function as the title of the passage?

  A. Different attitudes towards misfortune B. Face difficulties with a smile

  C. Nothing is impossible D. Life is full of adversity

  Adding math talk to story time at home is a winning factor for children's math

  achievement, according to a new research from a university. The study from psychologists

  Sian Beilock and Susan Levine shows a marked increase in math achievement among

  children whose families used Bedtime Math, an iPad app that delivers engaging math story

  problems for parents and children to solve together.

  Even children who used the app with their parents as little as once a week saw gains in

  math achievement by the end of the school year. The app's effect was especially strong for

  children whose parents tend to be anxious or uncomfortable with math.

  Previous research from this group has demonstrated the importance of adults' attitudes

  about math for children's math success. For example, a recent study found that

  math-anxious parents who help their children with math homework actually weaken their

  children's math achievement.

  The new findings demonstrate that structured, positive interactions around math at

  home can cut the link between parents' uneasiness about math and children's low math


  "Many people experience high levels of anxiety when they have to solve a math

  problem, with a majority of adults feeling at least some worries about math," said Beilock,

  professor in Psychology and author of Choke, a book about stress and performance. "These

  math-anxious parents are probably less likely to talk about math at home, which affects

  how competent their children are in math. Bedtime Math encourages a dialogue between

  parents and kids about math, and offers a way to engage in high-quality math interactions in

  a low-effort, high-impact way."

  Study participants included 587 first-grade students and their parents. Families were

  given an iPad installed with a version of the Bedtime Math app, with which parents and

  their children read stories and answer questions involving math, including topics like

  counting, shapes and problem-solving. A control group received a reading app that had

  similar stories without the math content and questions related to reading comprehension

  instead. Children's math achievement was assessed at the beginning and end of the school

  year. Parents completed a questionnaire about their nervousness with math.

  The more times parents and children in the math group used the app, the higher

  children's achievement on a math assessment at the end of the school year. Indeed, children

  who frequently used the math app with their parents outperformed similar students in the

  reading group by almost three months in math achievement at year's end.

  32. Bedtime Math is an iPad app that _ .

  A. requires parents and children to answer reading comprehension questions

  B. assesses children's math achievement and parents' nervousness with math

  C. encourages children together with their parents to solve math story problems

  D. teaches children how to count, recognize shapes and solve practical problems

  33. The previous study found that____.

  A. help from math-anxious parents improves children's math achievement

  B. interactions around math at home will cut off the family relationship

  C. children's math achievement is related to parents' attitude about math

  D. children can achieve more success if they see the importance of math

  34. We can infer from the passage that____.

  A. it is the math problems related to the stories that make the great difference

  B. children whose parents are uneasy about math are superior to other students

  C. Parents using the app for three months can see gains in math achievement

  D. the frequency of using the app has nothing to do with children's achievement

  35. What does the author want to tell us?

  A. High-anxiety parents influence children's attitude about math.

  B. Frequent use of app can develop problem-solving ability.

  C. Low-effort activities create good parent-child relationship.

  D. High-quality math interactions improve children's performance.
