信念是一种充满活力的力量,它能打破常规的束缚,让平凡陈旧的事物焕然一新信念能使人的意志再次振作,使人的情感更为丰富,并能唤醒人的创造力The Light of a Bright Day By Helen KellerI choose my subject faith wrought into life, apart from creed or dogma. By faith I mean a vision of good one cherishes and the enthusiasm that pushes one to seek its fulfillment regardless of obstacles. Faith is a dynamic power that breaks the chain of routine and gives a new, fine turn to old commonplaces. Faith reinvigorates the will, enriches the affections and awakens a sense of creativeness.Active faith knows no fear, and it is a safeguard to me against cynicism and despair. After all, faith is not one thing or two or three things; it is an indivisible totality of beliefs that inspire me. Belief in God as infinite good will and all-seeing Wisdom whose everlasting arms sustain me walking on the sea of life. Trust in my fellow men, wonder at their fundamental goodness and confidence that after this night of sorrow and oppression they will rise up strong and beautiful in the glory of morning. Reverence the beauty an preciousness of the earth, and a sense of responsibility to do what I can to make it a habitation of health and plenty all men. Faith in immortality because it renders less bitter the separation from those I have loved and lost, and because it will free me from unnatural limitations and unfold still more faculties I have in joyous activity. Even if my vital spark should be blown out, I believe that I should behave with courageous dignity in the presence of fate and strive to be a worthy companion of the beautiful, the good, and the True. But fate has its master in the faith of those who surmount it, and limitation has its limits those who, thought disillusioned, live greatly. True faith is not a fruit of security, it is the ability to blend mortal fragility with the inner strength of the spirit. It does not shift with the changing shades of one's thought.It was a terrible blow to my faith when I learned that millions of my fellow creatures must labor all their days food and shelter, bear the most crushing burdens and die without having known the joy of living. My security vanished ever, and I have never regained the radiant belief of my young years that earth is a happy home and hearth the majority of mankind. But faith is a state of mind. The believer is not soon disheartened. If he is turned out of his shelter, he builds up a house that the winds of the earth cannot destroy.When I think of the suffering and famine, and the continued slaughter of men, my spirit bleeds, but the thought comes to me that, like the little deaf, dumb and blind child I once was, mankind is growing out of the darkness of ignorance and hate into the light of a brighter day. 33

A gently CaressMichael and I hardly noticed when the waitress came and placed the plates on our table.We were seated in a small deli tucked away) from the bustle3) of Third Street,in New York City.Our exchange was lively,if not profound.We laughed about the movie that we had seen the night bee and disagreed about the meaning behind the text we had just finished our literature seminar.He told me about the moment when he had taken the drastic step into maturity by becoming Michael and refusing to respond to “Mickey.”Had he been twelve or fourteen?He couldn't remember,but he did recall that his mother had cried and said he was growing up too quickly.As we bit into our blueberry blintzes,I told him about the blueberries that my sister and I used to pick when we went to visit our cousins in the country.I recalled that I always finished mine bee we got back to the house,and my aunt would warn me that I was going to get a very bad stomachache.Of course,I never did.As our sweet conversation continued,my eyes glanced across the restaurant,stopping at the small corner booth where an elderly couple sat.Her floral print dress seemed as faded as the cushion on which she had rested her worn handbag.The top of his head was as shiny as the soft-boiled egg on which he very slowly nibbled.She also ate her oatmeal) at a slow,almost tedious pace.But what drew my thoughts to them was t heir undisturbed silence.It seemed to me that a melancholy5) emptiness permeated6) their little corner.As the exchange between Michael and me fluctuated7) from laughs to whispers,confessions to assessments,this couple's poignant8) stillness called to me.How sad,I thought,not to have any thing left to say.Wasn't there any page that they hadn't yet turned in each other's stories?What if that happened to us?Michael and I paid our small tab and got up to leave the restaurant.As we walked by the corner where the old couple sat,I accidentally dropped my wallet.Bending over to pick it up,I noticed that under the table,each of their free hands was gently cradled in the other's.They had been holding hands all this time!I stood up and felt humbled by the simple yet profound act of connection I had just been privileged to9) witness.This man's gentle caress of his wife's tired fingers filled not only what I had previously perceived as an emotionally empty corner,but also my heart.Theirs was not the uncomtable silence whose threat one always feels just behind the punch line or at the end of an anecdote on the first date.No,theirs was a comtable,relaxed ease,a gentle love that knew it did not always need words to express itself.They had probably shared this hour of the morning with each other a long time,and maybe today wasn't that different from yesterday,but they were at peace with that,and with each other.Maybe,I thought as Michael and I walk ed out,it wouldn't be so bad if someday that was us.Maybe,it would be kind of nice.by Daphna Renan 760

British Cultural Counsellor Michael O’Sullivan on IELTS Test and MBA英国文化参赞谈雅思考试和MBALi Xin With China’s WTO accession, mastering a eign language, i.e., English, is becoming more and more essential especially the young people. As British cultural counsellor and a native speaker, what suggestions could you offer to them? 李昕:中国加入世贸之后,掌握一门外语,比如英语,显得越来越重要了,特别是对年轻人作为英国文化参赞和以英语为母语者,你有什么建议吗?Mr. Counsellor Well, I think it’s hard me to tell how to improve English teaching in China. In fact if I can presume to give advice, I think the “Gaokao” needs even more rem to give more emphasis on communication skills. There needs to be substantial changes in the next few years to the ways in which English is taught in the classroom.I think it’s interesting that many many Chinese people seem to achieve very good level of English, despite old--fashioned methodology. They have learnt English several years, but have no functional command of English. But we have the same problem in UK. The British kids study French at school but often can’t actually speak French when they graduate from middle school. We are making big rems and are achieving somewhat better results now. It takes a long time to develop effective ways of teaching people to speak a eign language.参赞先生:我想,我很难讲如何提高中国的英语教学其实,如果我可以冒昧建议的话,那我想高考需要进行更多改进,更多侧重于交流的技巧而且今后几年里,需要对课堂的英语教学方式实行重大改革我觉得很有意思的是,尽管采用的是老式数学法,许许多多的中国人似乎英语已达到很高的水平他们学了好几年英语,但一点也不会运用而在我们英国,也有同样的问题英国孩子在学校里学法语,但当他们从中学毕业时, 常常并不真能讲法语我们进行了重大改革,也多少有些成效要想开发出行之有效的教人说外语的方式得花很长时间Li Since more and more trans--national corporations are setting up offices in China, MBA is getting hotter. Going to study in your business schools is one of the top choices of Chinese students. What do you think of this trend?李:由于越来越多的跨国公司在中国设办事处,MBA(工商管理硕士)也随之成为热门去贵国商学院求学成了我国学子们的首选之一你对此趋势有何看法?Mr. Counsellor Yes. MBA is very hot at the moment. We certainly noticed that many many Chinese students want to do MBAs in the UK. What I would say about MBA is that I think some students in China want to do MBA too early. My personal opinion is that an MBA programme is more suitable people with some work experience, example, three to four years. And many MBA programmes in the UK will only accept students that have some work experience. I think that it’s quite difficult students who have never worked in any kind of business or public organization to understand the meaning of management theory. And MBAs usually have a lot of management theory content. So I wonder whether it is a good idea so many young Chinese to want to do their MBA first.参赞先生:是的MBA目前很时兴我们当然注意到许多中国学生想去英国读MBA关于这点我想说的是,我觉得有些中国学生想读MBA的时机还太早了点我个人的看法是,MBA课程更适合有些工作经验的人,比如说有三四年的工作经验再说,英国的许多MBA课程,只接收有一定工作经验的学生我认为,从未在任何商业或公共机构工作过的学生是很难理解管理理论的意义的而MBA通常含有许多管理理论方面的内容所以,我不知道那么多的中国学生想先选读MBA这好不好Li What kind of assistance could your council provide to Chinese students wanting to study in UK?李:贵文化处向那些想留学英国的中国学生提供什么帮助呢?Mr. Counsellor Well, we are very happy to advice Chinese students. We get very large number of Chinese students going to UK every year and the number is increasing very quickly. This year--01--I estimate that about ,000 new students will go to the UK. That’s an increase of on last year’s number. Many of these students will go several years in the ed Kingdom. They enter British universities to take an undergraduate degree. Some remain to do a master’s degree. We welcome the students, but also we hope that they will choose the programmes carefully to meet their personal needs. They are always welcome to talk to my staff in British Council in China. We can give them free advice to help them decide what they want to do. In many ways we are trying to help these self--financed students to make good choice.参赞先生:哦,我们很乐意向中国学生提供咨询每年都有大量中国学生到英国留学,而且这数字还在快速增长今年,即01年,我预计约有1.6万名新生将赴英留学这数目很大,与去年相比增加了他们中很多人要在英国待好几年他们进入英国的大学读学士学位,有些接着读硕士学位我们欢迎这些学生,但也希望他们仔细选择适合自己的课程我们驻华文化处的工作人员随时乐意与他们交谈我们会向他们提供免费咨询,帮助他们决定自己想做什么我们尽量以多种方式帮助这些自费学生做出好的选择Li It is said that the living cost and tuitions are very high in UK. How do you think of it?李:据说英国的生活费用和学费很高这你怎么看?Mr. Counsellor We think the main attraction of studying in UK is the quality and variety of education. But we think sometimes people exaggerate the price. However, I've also emphasized that we don’t expect to rely on low prices to attract more students from China. Choosing your study abroad is a very big decision. It costs you a lot of money and a lot of time and it may determine your future life. most people, it’s a turning point. Probably it’s one of the two big decisions you make in your life, the other one might be getting married. Usually, people don’t marry someone they met yesterday. So it’s generally not a good idea to make a study abroad decision in one day either.参赞先生:我们认为在英国学习的主要吸引力是教学质量和众多的教学种类但我们觉得有时候人们把费用夸大了然而,我也强调过,我们并不打算靠低价来吸引更多的中国学生选择出国留学是个很重大的决定要花掉你很多钱和许多时间,而且它还可能会决定你未来的生活对于多数人来说,它是个转折点它或许是你一生中做的两个重大决定之一,另一个或许就是结婚了通常,人们不会与他们昨天刚认识的人结婚所以一天就作出出国留学的决定,一般说来也不是个好主意Li Last year we had an interview with consul officers in your embassy and were inmed that a streamlined visa process would be in effect. And now one year has passed, how is it doing in practice?李:去年,我们采访了贵国使馆的领事官员,获悉一套简化的签手续将开始实行如今一年已过去了,它实行的情况怎么样呢?Mr. Counsellor We have, I think, a very good visa process students going to the UK. Normally applicants can get an interview within one or two weeks. And in many cases the decision can be made in one or two days. In some cases the decision has to be made in London and it’ll take four or five weeks. So it’s quite efficient. 参赞先生:我觉得,我们吸收中国学生赴英的签程序是非常好的通常,签申请人可在一两周内就获面谈在许多情况下,审批决定可在一两天内做出有些申请的审批决定得在伦敦作出,这就要花四五个星期所以说,这种效率是很高的Li The British Council conducts many examinations in China, such as IELTS, BULATS, and so on. While IELTS is the most popular one among Chinese students wanting to study in UK, could you make a brief introduction of it?李:英国文化处在中国举行许多考试,如雅思、职业外语水平考试等鉴于雅思在想去英国留学的中国学生中最为流行,你能简要介绍一下这种考试吗?Mr. Counsellor Yes. We are directly involved in IELTS and BULATS. IELTS is very hot at the moment. Last year about 3,000 to ,000 people took the IELTS test in Mainland China. This year, we estimate that about 50,000 will take this test. Now the British universities are attracting large number of Chinese applicants. I think they mostly tend to insist on good IELTS scores. But the test is also very widely used by students going to study in Australia, New Zealand and Canada and even in the USA. Maybe most people in China don’t know that the majority of American universities accept the IELTS scores.参赞先生:好的我们直接参与雅思和职业外语水平考试雅思目前很热门去年,中国大陆地区就有.3万至.万人参加雅思考试今年,我们估计大约有5万人要参加这一考试而今,英国的大学正在吸引着大量中国的入学申请者我想它们大都倾向于坚持雅思考试的高分这项考试还广泛适用于那些想去澳大利亚、新西兰、加拿大甚至美国学习的学生实际上,在中国,也许大多数人并不知道美国的大多数大学也接受雅思成绩Li From the results of the exams that your Council conducts, what do you think are the most common weak points of the test takers in China? 李:从贵处举行考试的结果看,你认为中国考生最常见的弱项是什么?Mr. Counsellor It’s quite common to find candidates’ writing skills are quite weak and less developed than other skills. It’s also quite common to find candidates whose ing is good but too slow, and that will affect their marks in the ing test. I think when the Chinese students study English, they spend a lot of time doing intensive ing, but ing speed is sometimes a problem. These are important skills if you are going to study in the UK. You need to have good writing skills to pass the course and you need to quickly to keep up.参赞先生:很常见的是,与其他技巧相比,雅思考生的写作技巧很弱而且不成熟还有很常见的一个是,考生阅读能力不错,但速度太慢,而这会影响他们在阅读考试中的成绩我认为,中国学生学英语时,他们在精读上花了大量时间,但阅读速度有时很成问题而这两项对于想去英国留学的人来说是很重要的技巧你得有良好的写作水平才能通过一门课程;你得有快速阅读能力才能跟得上Li What improvements will you make to IELTS this year?李:你们今年将对雅思做些什么改进?Mr. Counsellor To ensure the security of the test we’ll make improvements to it each year. And this year there will be more standardization of the speaking test to make the marking reliable. The speaking test is carried out by our trained interviewers. They must be native speaker; they must have ELT or applied linguistics qualification at postgraduate level and English teaching experience. Those are the basic qualifications examiners of the writing and speaking test. They also have to be certified as IELTS examiners after carrying out some trial marking and receiving training. the writing and speaking test, the marking has to be made by qualified examiners to ensure that the marking is reliable and the test takers get the right mark in IELTS test.参赞先生:为了确保这一考试的安全性,我们每年都对它加以改进今年,我们对口语考试将有更多的标准化措施,使评分更可信口语考试由我们经过培训的考官进行他们的母语必须是英语;他们得有研究生水平的英语教学或应用语言学资格他们一般都须有英语教学经验这些都是当雅思写作和口试考官的基本条件他们还得进行试验性评分并接受了培训后才能合格就写作和口语考试来说,评分必须由合格的考官给出,以保所打的分数是可信的,雅思考生的得分是正确的 89

A light drizzle was falling as my sister Jill and I ran out of the Methodist Church, eager to get home and play with the presents that Santa had left us and our baby sister, Sharon. Across the street from the church was a Pan American gas station where the Greyhound bus stopped. It was closed Christmas, but I noticed a family standing outside the locked door, huddled under the narrow overhang in an attempt to keep dry. I wondered briefly why they were there but then got about them as I raced to keep up with Jill.   Once we got home, there was barely time to enjoy our presents. We had to go off to our grandparents’ house our annual Christmas dinner. As we drove down the highway through town, I noticed that the family was still there, standing outside the closed gas station.   My father was driving very slowly down the highway. The closer we got to the turnoff my grandparents’ house, the slower the car went. Suddenly, my father U-turned in the middle of the road and said, “I can’t stand it!”   “What?” asked my mother.   “It's those people back there at the Pan Am, standing in the rain. They've got children. It's Christmas. I can’t stand it.”   When my father pulled into the service station, I saw that there were five of them the parents and three children — two girls and a small boy.   My father rolled down his window. “Merry Christmas,” he said. “Howdy,” the man replied. He was very tall and had to stoop slightly to peer into the car.   Jill, Sharon, and I stared at the children, and they stared back at us.   “You waiting on the bus?” my father asked.   The man said that they were. They were going to Birmingham, where he had a brother and prospects of a job.   “Well, that bus isn’t going to come along several hours, and you’re getting wet standing here. Winborn’s just a couple miles up the road. They’ve got a shed with a cover there, and some benches,” my father said. “Why don't y’all get in the car and I’ll run you up there.”   The man thought about it a moment, and then he beckoned to his family. They climbed into the car. They had no luggage, only the clothes they were wearing.   Once they settled in, my father looked back over his shoulder and asked the children if Santa had found them yet. Three glum faces mutely gave him his answer.   “Well, I didn’t think so,” my father said, winking at my mother, “because when I saw Santa this morning, he told me that he was having trouble finding all, and he asked me if he could leave your toys at my house. We'll just go get them bee I take you to the bus stop.”   All at once, the three children's faces lit up, and they began to bounce around in the back seat, laughing and chattering.   When we got out of the car at our house, the three children ran through the front door and straight to the toys that were sp out under our Christmas tree. One of the girls spied Jill’s doll and immediately hugged it to her breast. I remember that the little boy grabbed Sharon’s ball. And the other girl picked up something of mine. All this happened a long time ago, but the memory of it remains clear. That was the Christmas when my sisters and I learned the joy of making others happy.   My mother noticed that the middle child was wearing a short-sleeved dress, so she gave the girl Jill’s only sweater to wear.   My father invited them to join us at our grandparents’ Christmas dinner, but the parents refused. Even when we all tried to talk them into coming, they were firm in their decision.   Back in the car, on the way to Winborn, my father asked the man if he had money bus fare.   His brother had sent tickets, the man said. My father reached into his pocket and pulled out two dollars, which was all he had left until his next payday. He pressed the money into the man’s hand. The man tried to give it back, but my father insisted. “It’ll be late when you get to Birmingham, and these children will be hungry bee then. Take it. I’ve been broke bee, and I know what it’s like when you can’t feed your family.”   We left them there at the bus stop in Winborn. As we drove away, I watched out the window as long as I could, looking back at the little gihugging her new doll. 7

把大的工作量作为一种推动你自己向前、学习新技能、展示你的精神风貌的好机会抱怨只会让你精疲力竭,相反,应以乐观的态度对待每日重工作对自己说:“这个问题,我能搞定”What would you say when you are under work pressure, "stressed out and frantic" or "challenged and energized"? There is very little physiological difference between the two, says a growing contingent of experts who claim works stress has an upside. These experts believe that stress can strengthen you or tear you down. In most cases, you can choose.Give stress a good name why recent work stress -- it's an indicator that your career is advancing. Think of a heavy work load as an exciting opporty to push yourself, learn new skills and show your mettle. Complaining depletes your energy; instead greet an overloaded day with optimism. Tell yourself, "This is a challenge i am capable of handling."Put it in perspective sometimes it's impossible to talk about the positive side of stress -- say your computer crashes and you lose valuable work -- but you can moderate your reaction. Rate your distress on a scale of 1 to , 1 being mild irritation and extreme panic or anger. Now, rank the importance of the situation from 1 ( a notice )to ( you're fired ). If your distress ranks higher than the seriousness of the situation, ask yourself Is this something i will remember in four years, four months, four days? Then downshift your response accordingly, saving your emotinal energy disasters. 8
