71.Culinary tourism is when people travel to a different country to enjoy local cuisine. Travelers often look
specifically for places with a rich cuisine, food and drink festivals, and cooking classes. Many different
destinations are popular for culinary tourism, such as France, Thailand, India, and Japan.
The most basic form of culinary tourism is when travelers go to a country with the aim of trying local dishes.
Culinary tourists are interested in dishes that cannot be found in other places. Food and drink festivals increase
culinary tourism because they give travelers a chance to sample many different dishes. Cooking classes also give
tourists the chance to learn how to cook local dishes and teach them new techniques in the process. A culinary tour
may include a mixture of these activities.
Particularly in Thailand, there are cooking schools with a huge range of prices, locations, and cuisines to
choose from. A typical half-day course includes an introduction to fundamental ingredients, cooking techniques,
and a hands-on chance to prepare and cook at least four dishes. Most schools offer a revolving cast of dishes,
making it possible to study for a week without repeating a lesson. Courses often start with a visit to a market and
end with a communal lunch where you get to taste your hard work.
The courses at smaller Thai cooking schools in Bangkok offer an ideal home-style learning environment that
is different from most of the hotels and restaurants in Thailand. You can experience Thai culture through the arts
and secrets of fragrant and delicious Thai cooking with the local people. Experienced chefs will show you the
secret recipe of authentic Thai cuisine step-by-step. But keep in mind that Thai cooking is extremely flexible.
Although you will be given recipes, the emphasis is on understanding the ingredients and flavors and using your
senses to make adjustments when you cook. Classes are intended to be relaxed and fun, reflecting the Thai
approach to life. There is no need to have any previous cooking experience, just a love of food and a willingness
to experiment. 【題組】71 What does the passage suggest about culinary tourism?

76.The use of emoticons, punctuation to depict a facial expression, is an essential part of the lexicon of the
Internet. Even if you don’t use emoticons, you probably know what they are-little strings of characters, when
looked at sideways, are like faces showing some emotion. For example, :-D means laughing, with eyes, a nose,
and a capital D for a wide, happy mouth.
All this is the result of a half-joking computer post put up by a faculty member at Carnegie Mellon
University on September 19, 1982. Scott Fahlman noticed that some of the jokes being sent around Carnegie
Mellon’s computer network were being taken seriously by a few people on campus. Someone who didn’t get the
joke might be upset by an all-in-fun comment and send out an angry response. This wasted a lot of people’s time.
Fahlman suggested the smiley as a solution. If you write something not to be taken seriously, he suggested, type :-)
after it. Some people took up his suggestion and it became part of the Internet shorthand at Carnegie
Mellon. The popularity of smiley turned out to be much more than Fahlman expected. Within a few months, it
soon spread via messages to other universities and companies.
No one really knows how many emoticons there are, but lists of 100 or so are common. The most popular
ones are actually turned into little pictures by word-processing or instant-messaging software. For
instance, :-( meaning sadness or disappointment becomes / on your computer screen. 【題組】76 What is the main purpose of the passage?
(A)To convince the reader to use emoticons in electronic communication.
(B)To introduce the reader to the origin of the smiley.
(C)To provide a historical overview of the Internet development.
