Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to
each of the questions from 43 to 050.
In the exploration of the linguistic life circle, it is apparent that it is much more difficult to learn a second language in
adulthood than a first language in childhood. Most adults never completely master a foreign language, especially in
phonology - hence the foreign accent. Their developmentoften 'fossilizes' into permanent error patterns that no teaching or
correction can undo. Of course there are great individual differences, which depend on effort, attitudes, amountof exposure,
quality of teaching, and plain talent, but there seems to be a cap for the best adults in the best circumstances. Many
explanations have been advanced for children's superiority: they exploit the simplified, repetitive conversation between
parents and children, make errors unself-consciously, are more motivated to communicate, like to conform, are not set in their
ways, and have no first language to interfere. But some of these accounts are unlikely, based on what is known about how
language acquisition works. Recent evidence is calling these social and motivation explanations into doubt.
Holding every other factor constant, a key factor stands out: sheer age. Systematic evidence comes from the psychologist
Elissa Newport and her colleagues. They tested Korean and Chinese-born students at the University of Illinois who had spent
at least ten years in the U.S. The immigrants were given a list of 276 simple English sentences, half of them containing some
grammatical error. The immigrants who came to the U.S. between the ages of three and seven performed identically to
American-born students. Those who arrived between the ages of 8 and 15 did worse than the later they arrived, and those who
arrived between 17 and 39 did the worst of all, and showed huge variability unrelated their age of arrival.
Question 43: The passage mainly discusses........
A. children's ability to learn a language
B. Research into language acquisition
C. adult differences in learning a foreign language
D. the age factor in learning languages fast
Question 44: The word 'cap' is closest in meaning to........
A. covering
B. prize
C. limit
D. level
Question 45: The word 'who' refers to........
A. Elissa Newport
B. students
C. colleagues

Question 46: According to the passage, what was the purpose of examining a sample number of immigrants ?
A. To measure the use of grammar
B. To confirm different language characteristics
C. To detect differences in nationalities
D. To compare different age groups
Question 47: In the experiment in the passage, the psychologists discovered.......

In the exploration of the linguistic life circle, it is apparent that it is much more difficult to learn a second language in
adulthood than a first language in childhood. Most adults never completely master a foreign language, especially in
phonology - hence the foreign accent. Their developmentoften 'fossilizes' into permanent error patterns that no teaching or
correction can undo. Of course there are great individual differences, which depend on effort, attitudes, amountof exposure,
quality of teaching, and plain talent, but there seems to be a cap for the best adults in the best circumstances. Many
explanations have been advanced for children's superiority: they exploit the simplified, repetitive conversation between
parents and children, make errors unself-consciously, are more motivated to communicate, like to conform, are not set in their
ways, and have no first language to interfere. But some of these accounts are unlikely, based on what is known about how
language acquisition works. Recent evidence is calling these social and motivation explanations into doubt.
Holding every other factor constant, a key factor stands out: sheer age. Systematic evidence comes from the psychologist
Elissa Newport and her colleagues. They tested Korean and Chinese-born students at the University of Illinois who had spent
at least ten years in the U.S. The immigrants were given a list of 276 simple English sentences, half of them containing some
grammatical error. The immigrants who came to the U.S. between the ages of three and seven performed identically to
American-born students. Those who arrived between the ages of 8 and 15 did worse than the later they arrived, and those who
arrived between 17 and 39 did the worst of all, and showed huge variability unrelated their age of arrival.
Question 43: The word 'cap' is closest in meaning to........
A. covering
B. limit
C. prize
D. level
Question 44: The word 'set' is closest in meaning to........
A. formed
B. stable

Question 45: According to the passage, what was the purpose of examining a sample number of immigrants ?
A. To measure the use of grammar
B. To compare different age groups
C. To detect differences in nationalities
D. To confirm different language characteristics
Question 46: The word 'unrelated' could be replaced by........
A. unidentified
B. unfamiliar
C. unclassified
D. unconnected
Question 47: The word 'who' refers to........
A. students
B. Koreans
C. colleagues
D. Elissa Newport
Question 48: The passage mainly discusses........
A. the age factor in learning languages fast
B. Research into language acquisition
C. children's ability to learn a language
D. adult differences in learning a foreign language

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to
each of the questions from 43 to 50.
In the exploration of the linguistic life circle, it is apparent that it is much more difficult to learn a second language in
adulthood than a first language in childhood. Most adults never completely master a foreign language, especially in
phonology - hence the foreign accent. Their developmentoften 'fossilizes' into permanent error patterns that no teaching or
correction can undo. Of course there are great individual differences, which depend on effort, attitudes, amountof exposure,
quality of teaching, and plain talent, but there seems to be a cap for the best adults in the best circumstances. Many
explanations have been advanced for children's superiority: they exploit the simplified, repetitive conversation between
parents and children, make errors unself-consciously, are more motivated to communicate, like to conform, are not set in their
ways, and have no first language to interfere. But some of these accounts are unlikely, based on what is known about how
language acquisition works. Recent evidence is calling these social and motivation explanations into doubt.
Holding every other factor constant, a key factor stands out: sheer age. Systematic evidence comes from the psychologist
Elissa Newport and her colleagues. They tested Korean and Chinese-born students at the University of Illinois who had spent
at least ten years in the U.S. The immigrants were given a list of 276 simple English sentences, half of them containing some
grammatical error. The immigrants who came to the U.S. between the ages of three and seven performed identically to
American-born students. Those who arrived between the ages of 8 and 15 did worse than the later they arrived, and those who
arrived between 17 and 39 did the worst of all, and showed huge variability unrelated their age of arrival.
Question 43: The passage mainly discusses........
A. Research into language acquisition
B. adult differences in learning a foreign language
C. children's ability to learn a language
D. the age factor in learning languages fast
Question 44: The word 'set' is closest in meaning to........
A. changed
B. formed
C. fixed
D. stable
Question 45: In the experiment in the passage, the psychologists discovered.......
A. young students learn English best
B. students who arrived late were worst of all
C. most students had lived in the U.S. for more than ten years
D. older students were unable to learn English
Question 46: According to the passage, young children learn languages quickly for all the following reasons EXCEPT.....
A. they frequently repeat words
B. their approach is flexible
C. they want to talk
D. they make many mistakes
Question 47: The word 'who' refers to........
A. Koreans
B. Elissa Newport
C. colleagues
D. students
Question 48: According to the passage, what was the purpose of examining a sample number of immigrants ?
A. To compare different age groups
B. To measure the use of grammar
C. To confirm different language characteristics
D. To detect differences in nationalities
18


Question 49: The word 'unrelated' could be replaced by........
A. unclassified
B. unfamiliar
C. unconnected
Question 50: The word 'cap' is closest in meaning to........
A. limit
B. level
C. covering
