One of the things that make a country unique is its food and drink with the rituals it
uses to serve them. Some countries are famous for a certain kind of meal or a certain
drink 41 in celebrations or during holidays. In Britain, the most famous food42 is probably afternoon tea. The ritual of afternoon tea is 43 a British
tradition. But because England spread its power all over the world up until the mid-20th
century, other countries that have been controlled by England have adopted the tradition as
well. Afternoon tea is not 44 only tea; it refers to a light meal taken in the
mid-afternoon, usually between 3 and 5 p.m. Of course, this 45 right in the middle
of the working day. For this reason, most Britons have been unable to keep the daily
tradition 46 . Now, for most people, it is mainly for special occasions or holidays,
and the idea of a daily afternoon tea seems old-fashioned.
Traditionally, afternoon tea 47 a pot of tea with milk and sugar. Along with the
tea, light food was served, 48 sandwiches, scones (a kind of sweet bread), cakes, or
pastries. As you may have seen in movies, the food was served on a silver 49 that
has several layers. It is a pity that the modern world moves 50 fast to stop every
afternoon and take part in this sweet, calming tradition.

Psychologists say that the colors of our clothes indicate something about ourselves.
For example, groups of people who wear clothes of the same color show that they have
similar ideas. Millions of Chinese wear blue or khaki-colored clothing; their clothes
look like uniforms to foreigners. In Germany, followers of Hitler wore brown shirts,
and in Italy, Mussolini’s followers wore black shirts. In Argentina, Peron’s followers
wore white shirts. 51
What color do you wear most often? 52 For example, BLUE means
freedom from stress. People who wear blue are busy people, but they want peace and
rest in their lives. Blue is also a favorite color of overweight people.
BROWN shows how your body feels. A person who wears brown enjoys a good
time, like himself or herself, and is probably friendly. People who wear a lot of
brown-colored clothes think about their bodies too much. But those who dislike brown
usually do not like the comforts of life. 53
BLACK has no color. Black may suggest deep sadness or tiredness. People who
wear black with another color want what that color represents. For example, suppose
you wear a black suit with a blue scarf or handkerchief. 54
GRAY is a natural color that perfectly describes the wearer. Wearers of gray may have few or no opinions. 55 People who wear gray may be hiding emotions
from others. The person who dislikes gray is an individual who has something to say
and wants very much to say it.
(A) You may be telling the world that you are tired and want to live a more peaceful life.
(B) They often get up early in the morning, take a cold shower, and begin an active day.
(C) Also, they may be uninterested and uninteresting.
(D) And the Pilgrims wore gray-colored clothing when they came to the Plymouth
Colony in 1620.
(E) A quick look at the colors of the clothes in your closet can help you find out
something about yourself. 【題組】

Body language is not a true language, yet its expressions can be understood readily.
In general, body language expresses a person’s emotions, feelings, and attitudes, and it
tends to affect the emotions, feelings, and attitudes of the viewers. In contrast, verbal
language more specifically expresses and affects reasoning processes. Body language by
itself or in conjunction with verbal expressions conveys shades of meaning that words
alone cannot express.
Some nonverbal expressions are understood by people in all cultures. Still other
nonverbal expressions are idiosyncratic and vary from person to person. A particular
gesture made by a baby, for example, may have meaning only to its mother.
Body language takes many different forms, including facial expressions, eye contact,
posture, hand gestures, psychological expressions like blushing and body odors, and
paralinguistic cues like rapidity and loudness of speech and stress of certain words and
syllables. Extensions of body language include cues like clothing, jewelry, and other
An important question in the study of body language is which body traits are to be
classed as communication. Natural hair color or body height, for example, is never
communication. Meanwhile, a distinctive posture, whether drooping their heads or
sitting up straight, may be very revealing.
Body language often reveals aspects of a person’s character that he or she may wish to
hide. For example, a politician may try to convey an image of sincerity by speaking
slowly, with much eye contact and a big smile, but face, posture, and gestures may reveal
an underlying untrustworthy personality. 【題組】
