A Hundreds of years ago, news was carried from place to place by people on foot or by horse. It took days, weeks and sometimes months for people to receive news. Now it is possible to send words and pictures around the world in seconds. Billions of people learn about news stories of their own country and all over the world every day, either by watching TV or reading newspapers.
Newspapers have been an important part of everyday life since(自从) the 18th century(世纪). Many countries have hundreds of different newspapers. How do newspaper editors decide which news stories to print? Why do they print some stories
and not others? What makes a good newspaper story?
Firstly, it is important to report new stories. TV stations can report news much faster than newspapers. Yet, newspapers give more about the same story. They may also look at the story in another way, or they may print completely (完全地) different stories to those on TV.
Secondly, a news story has to be interesting and unusual. People don't want to read stories about everyday life As a result(结果), many stories are about some kind of danger and seem(似乎) to be "bad" news. For example, newspapers never print stories about planes landing safely, instead they print stories about plane accidents(事故).
Another factor(因素) is also very important in many news stories. Many people are interested in news in foreign countries, but more prefer(更喜欢) to read stories about people, places and events (事件) in their own country. So the stories on the front page in Chinese newspapers are usually very different from the ones in British, French and American newspapers.
36. According (根据) the passage, how do people learn about news stories in the world now?
A. They carry news stories and tell others from place to place oh foot or by horse.
B. They tell each other what they have seen with their eyes.
C. They watch TV or read newspapers. D. They listen to the radio every day.
37. The difference(区别) between newspaper stories and TV news reports is that .
A. people can learn more about the same news story from a newspaper
B. people can read the news story more quickly in a newspaper
C. people can read news stories in other countries
D. people can read news stories about their own country
38. To make a good newspaper story, how many factors does the passage talk about?
A. Two. B. Three. C. Five. D. Six.
39. According to the passage, which of the following can you most possibly watch on TV?

But after we spent some time together talking and laughing, I began to understand that if I killed myself, I would have missed that time and so many others that might follow.

It was a beautiful spring morning. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and the sun was warm but not too hot. Mr. White saw an old man at the bus stop with a big and black umbrella in his hand.
Mr. White said to him, “Do you think it’s going to rain today?”
“No,” said the old man, “I don’t think so.”
“Then are you carrying the umbrella because the sun is too hot?”
“No, the sun is not very hot in spring.”

Lesson 1 A private conversation 私人谈话
First listen and then answer the question.
Why did the writer complain to the people behind him?
Last week I went to the theatre. I had a very good seat. The play was very interesting. I did not enjoy it. A young man and a young woman were sitting behind me. They were talking loudly. I got very angry. I could not hear the actors. I turned round. I looked at the man and the woman angrily. They did not pay any attention. In the end, I could not bear it. I turned round again. ‘I can't hear a word!’ I said angrily. ‘It's none of your business, ’ the young man said rudely. ‘This is a private conversation!’
