55. When asked about the power of ads, most people agree that ads are ineffective on .
(D)them Passage 2 Like most people, I was brought up to look upon life as a process of getting. It was not until in my late thirties that I made this important discovery: giving away makes life so much more exciting. You need not worry if you lack money. This is how I experimented with giving away. If an idea for improving the window display of a neighborhood store flashes to me, I step in and make the suggestion to the storekeeper. One discovery I made about giving away is that it is almost impossible to give away anything in this world without getting something back, though the return often comes in an unexpected form. One Sunday morning the local post office delivered an important special delivery letter to my home, though it was addressed to me at my office. I wrote the postmaster a note of appreciation. More than a year later I needed a post office box for a new business I was starting. I was told at the window that there were no boxes left, and that my name would have to go on a long waiting list. AI was about to leave, the postmaster appeared in the doorway. He had overheard our conversation. “Wasn’t it you that wrote us that letter a year ago about delivering a special delivery to your home?” I said yes. “Well, you certainly are going to have a box in this post office if we have to make one for you. You don’t know what a letter like that means to us. We usually get nothing but complaints.”

     Training to communicate across cultures has long been part of the preparation for executives moving overseas to work. But now, the training is increasingly important for employees who may never leave the country, yet will work closely with companies and people around the world.    “Whether a multinational or a start-up business out of a garage,everybody is global these days,” said Dean Foster, president of DeanFoster Associates, an intercultural consultancy in New York. “Intoday’s economy, there is no room for failure. Companies have tounderstand the culture they are working in from Day 1.”     Mr. Foster recounted how an American businessman recently gave four antique clocks wrapped in white paper to a prospective client inChina. What the man did not realize, he said, was that the sounds of the words in Mandarin for clock and the number four are similar tothe sounds of the word for death, and white is a funeral color in many Asian countries. “The symbolism was so powerful,” Mr. Foster said,“that the man lost the deal.”     The military and foreign service have a tradition of preparingpersonnel and their families, but the corporations “are really the newcomers,” said Anne P. Copeland, executive director of the Interchange Institute, a research and consulting organization inBrookline, Massachusetts.

【題組】48. Which of the following statement is not inferred from the passage?
(A) The symbolism is very powerful.
(B) Companies have to understand the culture they are working ASAP.
(C) The executive may not have to leave the country to train the employees.
(D) Training to communicate across cultures has long been part of the preparation for executives moving overseas to work.

36-40 One of the most important social developments that helped to make possible a shift in thinking about the role of public education was the effect of the baby boom of the 1950's and 1960's on the schools. In the 1920's, but especially in the Depression conditions of the 1930's, the United States experienced a declining birth rateevery thousand women aged fifteen to forty-four gave birth to about 118 live children in 1920, 89.2 in 1930, 75.8 in 1936, and 80 in 1940. With the growing prosperity brought on by the Second World War and the economic boom that followed it, young people married and established households earlier and began to raise larger families than had their predecessors during the Depression. Birth rates rose to 102 per thousand in 1946, 106.2 in 1950, and 118 in 1955. Although economics was probably the most important determinant, it is not the only explanation for the baby boom. The increased value placed on the idea of the family also helps to explain this rise in birth rates. The baby boomers began streaming into the first grade by the mid-1940's and became a flood by 1950. The public school system suddenly found itself overtaxed. While the number of schoolchildren rose because of wartime and postwar conditions, these same conditions made the schools even less prepared to cope with the flood. The wartime economy meant that few new schools were built between 1940 and 1945. Moreover, during the war and in the boom times that followed, large numbers of teachers left their profession for better-paying jobs elsewhere in the economy. Therefore, in the 1950's and 1960's, the baby boom hit an antiquated and inadequate school system. Consequently, the "custodial rhetoric" of the 1930's and early 1940's no longer made sense; that is, keeping youths aged sixteen and older out of the labor market by keeping them in school could no longer be a high priority for an institution unable to find space and staff to teach younger children aged five to sixteen. With the baby boom, the focus of educators and of laymen interested in education inevitably turned toward the lower grades and back to basic academic skills and discipline. The system no longer had much interest in offering nontraditional, new, and extra services to older youths.
【題組】According to the passage, why did teachers leave the teaching profession after the outbreak of the war?
(A) They needed to be retrained.
(B) They were dissatisfied with the curriculum.
(C) Other jobs provided higher salaries.
(D) Teaching positions were scarce.
