41.▲ 閱讀下文,回答第 41 − 45 題 
         Mental and physical health professionals in the United States may consider referring clients and patients to a music therapist for a number of reasons. It seems a particularly good choice for the social worker who is coordinating a client’s case. Music therapists use music to establish a relationship with the patient and to improve the patient’s health, using highly structured musical interactions. Patients and therapists may sing, play instruments, dance, compose, or simply listen to music. 
        The course of training for music therapists is comprehensive. In addition to formal musical and therapy training, music therapists are taught to discern what kinds of interventions will be most beneficial for each individual patient. Because each patient is different and has different goals, the music therapist must be able to understand the patient’s situation and choose the music and activities that will do the most toward helping the patient achieve his or her goals. The referring social worker can help this process by clearly communicating each client’s history. 
        Although patients may develop their musical skills, that is not the main goal of music therapy. Any client who needs particular work on communication or on academic, emotional, and social skills, and who is not responding to traditional therapy, is an excellent candidate for music therapy. ˉ

【題組】41. According to the passage, who helps music therapists better understand what their patients need?
(A) Social workers.
(B) Psychologists.
(C) Surgeons.
(D) Physical therapists
42.【題組】42. What is the purpose of the second paragraph?
(A) To prescribe music therapy for patients.
(B) To compare music therapy with social work.
(C) To describe training for music therapists.
(D) To introduce the benefits of music therapy.
43.【題組】43. Which of the following is closest in meaning to discern in the second paragraph?
(A) notice
(B) change
(C) produce
(D) admire ˉ
44.【題組】44. Which of the following clients are NOT mentioned as suitable for music therapy?
(A) Clients who need to improve social skills.
(B) Clients who need to resolve political issues.
(C) Clients who need to develop academic skills.
(D) Clients who need to work on communication. ˉ

(A) Music therapy is a relatively new field.
(B) Music therapy is particularly beneficial for young children.
(C) Music therapy can succeed where traditional therapies have failed.

       A study released recently by Voxburner, a United Kingdom-based research firm that tracks 
how youths consume media, suggests that over 60 percent of British teenagers and young adults 
aged 16 to 24 prefer physical books over E-books when they were asked which media 
they preferred in physical form. The feeling of a printed book, with its rough paper and thick 
spine, is an absorbing and pleasurable experience — sometimes more so than reading on a device. 
Some recent reports have found that this tactile feeling of paper can also create a much more 
immersive learning experience for readers. Why? Several scientists believe it is neurological. 
        A research report published earlier this year in the International Journal of Education Research 
found that students in school who read text on printed paper scored significantly higher in 
reading comprehension tests than students who read the same text in digital forms. Furthermore, 
according to an October report by the Book Industry Study Group, which monitors the 
publishing industry, the sales of E-books have slowed over the past year and currently comprise 
about 30 percent of all books sold. 
       There were two main reasons given for the preference for paper books over digital books. 
First, many of those questioned said they liked to feel an actual printed book, versus a digital 
experience where a screen can be flat and lacking imagination. The other reason given not to 
buy digital books is the price. Many of the young British people questioned in the study seemed 
unable to understand the high prices of E-books, which can range between $10 and $15, on average, 
compared with paperback books, which can cost almost exactly the same, sometimes less.
