第四部分：阅读理解（单项选择） 阅读下列短文，从 A、B、C、D 四个选项中选出一个正确答案，并在答题纸上写 出所选的字母符号。 短文理解 1 Blocks of “high-rise”flats have been built in large numbers in Londonand in many other big cities. Just after the Second World War these big, twenty-to-thirty storey buildings, hundreds of feet in height, were thought to be the ideal solution to the housing problem. For on the one hand, there was severe housing shortage, but on the other hand, there was lack of space to build houses in urban areas. Blocks of “high-rise” flats seemed, at first, to be able to solve the problem, since they can offer space for more families to live in on less land. The beautiful, modern apartments in the high–rises were much sought after by people who lived downtown. Hundreds of the vast blocks had been built before anyone began to doubt about whether they were good solutions or not. Are they suitable
places for people, children especially, to live in? A well-known British architect, who personally designed many of these buildings, now believes that the high-rises may well make those people who have been housed in them suffer a great deal. Evidence has been collected by social workers, which suggests that people do suffer. They complain about severe loneliness and deep depression living within these great towers. People also talk about lack of communication with others, no easy access to a playground for children, no chances for adults to get familiarized with each other. Many people say that they have lived next door to each other for years in the same building, but they never know who their neighbors are. Some expertssay that a large number of people living in the high-rises suffer from mental disorder and have even developed criminal tendencies. As a result of these new discoveries, plans for new high-rise blocks are being reconsidered. We are now building up many high-rises in big cities such as Beijing,Shanghai and Guangzhou. Perhaps we should also reconsider the idea too. 1. There was a big housing problem after the Second World War ____________. A. in London B. in the rural areas C. in many big cities D. in many countries 2. Blocks of “high-rise” flats were thought to be the ideal solution to the housing problem, because ____________. A. there was severe house shortage in big cities B. there was less and less land to build houses in big cities C. they were modern and beautiful and much sought after by city people D. they were built on less land and were able to house a lot more people 3. The sentence “Hundreds of the vast blocks had been built before anyone began to doubt about whether they were good solutions or not.” means ____________. A. it was not until hundreds of the vast blocks had been built, people began to doubt about whether they were good solutions or not B. hundreds of the vast blocks had not been built until anyone began to doubt about whether they were good solutions or not C. people began to doubt about whether they were good solutions or not before hundreds of the vast blocks had been built
D. before hundreds of the vast blocks had been built, some people began to doubt about whether they were good solutions or not 4. The author takes a well-known British architect as an example to show us that ____________. A. he is very proud of his designing of many of the high-rises B. even a well-known designer of the high-rises believes they are no good for people C. even a well-known designer of the high-rises suffers personally D. high-rises are well-designed, modern buildings which meet people’s needs 5. What is the greatest danger for people living in a high-rise according to some experts? A. Lack of communication with others. B. No easy access to a playground for children. C. Developing criminal tendencies. D. Not knowing the neighbors. 短文理解 2 Sura Elmer came to Shanghailast July from the Netherlands, and will remain here for the next couple of years. He worked at the Holiday Inn Hotel as a sales manager, “One important part of my job consists in staying in contact with consultant-generals here. With a white face, it is easier for me to persuade people,” he said. Before working in Shanghai, he worked for a Holiday Inn Hotel in Amsterdam.

He also said that he earned a bit more here than in the Netherlands, and accommodation and meals are freely available. “I like Shanghai. Before coming here I had no idea what China would be like. Now I have been here for nearly one year, I found
people here friendly, though I dislike people spitting on the ground.” He intended to work here for another two or three years, depending on the hotel. 6.

Recently my attitude has begun to change, although I still hold that it is essential for everyone in the world today. As a top junior student in my college, I was asked to make a speech on how to learn English well. Standing in front of the audience facing so many freshmen, I was trembling. I didn’t remember any word that I had prepared. I ran out of the conference room without finishing my speech, leaving everyone puzzled. I cried that night in my room, feeling that I was a loser. Studying takes so much of my time that I feel unable to really develop myself. I am just storing knowledge; yet fail to communicate with others.

Dear Bob, I’m just writing to let you know our new address and to invite you to our house-warming party next Saturday. I’m sorry about the lack of warning, but we’ve been busy moving house and I’ve had little time for anything else. In any case, we only decided to hold the party last week when we found out that cost of moving was not as high as we thought and we had a little cash to spare. We moved to here two days ago and we’ve been working non-stop ever since. This evening we decided to have a few hours’ rest, so I’m writing a few invitations to some friends. You can do the trip from Bedfordto Flinders in two hours now that the new motorway is open. Dew’s Parker is rather difficult to find though, because it’s a new housing estate and few people know where it is. Give us a ring when you are in the area and I’ll give detailed directions to you then. Our number is 56889590. Barbara and I hope you can make it in spite of the short notice.

It seems that in the 1980s the principal carriers of the disease were homosexuals, drug users and prostitutes. Now it is becoming evident that heterosexuals also spread the disease, that children can be born with the virus and that patients in hospitals are being infected too.
Just as the WHO fought the spread of children’s disease throughout the world in the 1960s, so now they must again use education to fight this killer disease. The organization proposes to write newspaper articles and books, and to make videos and TV programmes. These will be translated into the major languages of the world so that as many people as possible can be educated about the danger of AIDS. However, we are still faced with two big questions. Is educating the public enough if we are to control the spread of AIDS? Does the WHO have enough money and resources for hospitals throughout the world to help and care for sufferers? One fact is becoming clearer and that is that the WHO has not focused enough on the need to educate medical staff. There are still hospitals and health centers in some parts of the world which do not accept AIDS patients, while there are others where too little care is taken to prevent the spread of the disease. 31. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? A. AIDS is a disease for which a cure has been found. B. AIDS is a disease which has just been found. C. AIDS is a disease which has existed for a long time. D. AIDS is a disease which spreads very slowly. 32. Who is easily infected with AIDS? A. People who use drugs. B. People who visit prostitutes. C. Patients who stay in hospital. D. All of the above. 33. In WHO’s opinion, what will help most effectively in fighting against the spread of AIDS? A. More education. B. More medicines. C. More doctors. D. More equipment.
34. From the passage, we can see that the writer is not happy about ____________. A. the education the general public get on AIDS B. the education the medical staff get on AIDS C. the TV programmes on AIDS D. the newspaper articles on AIDS 35. Which of the following statements is not true according to the passage? A. It is not enough only to educate the general pubic. B. There are some hospitals in some parts of the world which do not accept AIDS patients. C. Great care has been taken to prevent the spread of AIDS everywhere in the world now. D. More money and resources are needed to control the spread of AIDS. 短文理解 8 "Are you the happiest man in the world?" When asked this question, most people would say no. They don't think they are the happiest of the people around them. They would point out that one of their neighbors is happier than any one of them, "Doctor Frank has a career himself. His wife is the most beautiful and well-educated lady in the community. No, I don't think I am happier than Doctor Frank. At least my career is not as successful as his." Most of us compare ourselves with anyone we think is happier ? a relative, a close friend or, often, someone we even hardly know. I once met a young man who struck me as particularly successful and happy. He spoke of his love for his beautiful wife and their daughters, and of his joy at being a TV talk-show host. I remember thinking he was one of the lucky few for whom everything goes effortlessly right. Once we talked about the Internet, he is grateful for its existence. He told me, because he could look up information on diabetes (糖尿病) ? the terrible disease that made his wife suffer and could possibly be passed down to his lovely children. When I heard this, I felt like a fool for taking it for granted that nothing unhappy existed in his life.
This made me think a lot and I soon drew one of the most significant conclusions about happiness: there is little relation between the situations of people's lives and how happy they are. We all know people who are richer and have an easier life than others, yet they are essentially unhappy. And we know people who have suffered a great deal but generally remain happy. Unhappiness is like looking at something and fixing on even the smallest fault. As a bald man told me, "Whenever I enter a room, all I see is hair." It is hard for us to give up the image of "being perfect." As nothing is perfect, anyone can be unhappy. It takes no courage or effort to be unhappy. True happiness lies in struggling to be happy. 36. According to the author, most people would ____________ they are the happiest in the world. A. doubt whether B. like to think that C. think about whether D. not think that 37. The author thinks that people quite often compare themselves with ____________. A. a close friend B. a relative C. anyone they think is happier D. someone they even hardly know 38. What is not true about the young man the author once met with? A. He is a TV talk show host. B. Everything goes effortlessly right for him. C. He loves his wife and their daughters. D. He is very happy with his work and his life.
39. After talking with the young man about the Internet, the author realizes ____________. A. that he is mistaken in thinking nothing unhappy existed in the latter’s life B. how grateful the young man is for the existence of the Internet C. how terribly the young man’s wife suffer from the disease - diabetes D. that there is a lot of information one can look up in the Internet 40. The significant conclusion the author draws about happiness is that ____________. A. it is hard for us to give up the image of "being perfect" B. unhappiness is like looking at something and fixing on even the smallest fault C. we know people who have suffered a great deal but generally remain happy D. true happiness lies in struggling to be happy 短文理解 9 No country in the world has more daily newspapers than the USA. There are almost 2,000 of them, as compared with 180 inJapan, 164 in Argentinaand 111 in Britain. The quality of some American papers is extremely high and their views are quoted all over the world. Distinguished dailies like the Washington Post or the New York Times have a powerful influence all over the country. However the Post and the Times are not national newspapers in the sense that The Times is in Britain or LeMonde is in France, since each American city has its own daily newspapers. The best of these present detailed accounts of national and international news, but many tend to limit themselves to state or city news. Like the press in most other countries, American newspapers range from the “sensational”, which feature crime, sex and rumour, to the “serious”,which focus on factual news and the analysis of world events. But with few exceptions American newspapers try to entertain as well as give information, for they have to compete with television. Just as American newspapers appeal to all tastes, so they also try and apply to readers of all political persuasions. A few newspapers support extremist (极端分子) groups on the far right and on the far left, but most
daily newspapers attempt to attract middle-of-the-road Americans who are essentially moderate. Many of these papers print columns by well-known journalists of different political and social views, in order to present a balanced picture. As in other democratic countries American newspapers can be either responsible or irresponsible, but it is generally accepted that the American press serves its country well and that it has more than once bravely uncovered political scandals (丑闻) or crimes, for instance, the Watergate Affair. The newspapers drew the attention of the public to the fears of the Vietnam War. 41. There are more daily newspapers in ____________. A. Britain than in the USA B. the USA than in Britainor Japan C. France than in Britain D. Britainthan in Japan 42. Most American newspapers try to entertain their readers because ____________. A. they have to compete with television B. they have to keep up a good relation with them C. they have to write about crime, sex and rumour D. they have to give factual news in an interesting way 43. Many American newspapers attract readers of different political persuasions by ____________. A. printing articles representing different political viewpoints B. inviting middle-of the-road Americans to write articles for them C. avoiding carrying articles about extremists D. supporting extremist groups from time to time 44. The word “press” in the second paragraph means ____________. A. a machine for printing thebusiness of printing B. great force C. newspapers D.
45. This passage is mainly about ____________.
A. the development of American newspapers B. the functions of American newspapers C. the merits and shortcomings of American newspapers D. the characteristics of American newspapers 短文理解 10 Cash of all kinds, the French franc, the German mark, and the Italian lira, is bound to disappear physically. The paper notes and gold coins may soon become curious collections of the pre-electronic age. Digital money can replace every use of cash money. It is true that electronic money has been around for decades. Each week billions of institutional dollars flow through the Interbank Payment System through telephone wires and satellite links. But in the 21st century, entirely new forms of digital money - including electronic cash and "computerized" smart cards - will become the means of most personal financial trade. What a great change this will be! Digital credit cards, smart cards, electronic wallets and electronic checks will change our way of life in the 21st century. They are efficient and easy to use. Customers will not take money with them when they go shopping. They will pay their bills from a smart cell phone or they will buy their coffee by using a digital credit card. How convenient it will be! And how easily people will do their shopping in such a way! With so many changes these days, the Internet will help speed up the end of cash. In Europe, some banks have been offering people electronic cash since late last year. Customers can withdraw money from their accounts through the bank's website and store their incomes on their home PCs. As the electronic cash is downloaded, the customers' bank accounts are recorded. Since customers can use electronic cash to buy things on the Internet, electronic cash will transform the Internet into a global marketplace for everything. It is going to have a very big impact on our lives. The low cost of computer and communications has created a worldwide medium not just for finance, but also for many other things in our life. The Age of Internet has brought e-businesses to our life, which perhaps will form the backbone of our economy. Mom and Pop can go global - all from the comfort of their easy chairs. Citizens will have access to e-government with its website offering a wide range of governmental information, policy and services.
Racing into the 21st Century, people all over the world are building up a series of IT projects, which is surely a part of the global future. People all over the world have been working for a brilliant future for centuries and it now seems the dream might come true very soon. 46. The main point of the first paragraph in this passage is ____________. A. the value of the paper notes and gold coins will lie in collections B. electronic money has been around for decades C. entire new forms of digital money will replace cash money D. cash of all kinds is bound to disappear slowly 47. The advantage of digital money is ____________. A. it is efficient and easy to use B. it will change our way of life in the 21st century C. it can replace every use of cash money D. people will do their shopping very easily 48. What is not true about the electronic cash, according to the passage? A. It will turn the Internet into a global marketplace where one can buy everything. B. The electronic cash can be downloaded and the money withdrawn is recorded. C. People can buy anything worldwide by sitting comfortably in their chairs. D.

第五部分：短文理解（正误判断） 阅读下列短文，并根据短文内容判断其后的句子是否正确（T）、错误（F）， 还是文字中没有涉及相关信息（NG）。（每题 2 分，共 10 分） 短文理解 1 The Internet has become a part of everyday life for most Britons, says a report published this week by market research company Netinfo. Just over 70% of people questioned for the survey said the net had become essential. The survey reveals that emailing friends and others is the nation’s favorite Internet activity. It also found that people spend an average of seven hours a week online, visiting 13 different websites in
seven days. But 10% of all those who surf the net ate doing it for more than 20 hours a week. Just over 2,000 adults in Britainwere interviewed for the report. The study found almost 19 million people in the UK– four in ten adults – regularly went online. But the number of new users has slowed down. Numbers online grew by just 11% over the past 12 months compared with 33% the previous year. The report also reveals the increasing importance of the silver surfer. According to the report the number of older people online grew by more than 40% over the past year. People aged over 55 now make up 17% of the UK Internet population. The survey also discovered that many workers surf the net for personal reasons while at work. Almost three-quarters of workers with Internet access admitted using it for pleasure, usually to email friends and family. According to Bill Wills, author of the survey, many employees expect some flexibility, and most employers re willing to accept this. ‘However, employers are less likely to be understanding, if you’re downloading movies or introducing an unfriendly virus to your company network,’ he said. 1. More than seven out of 10 people feel they can’t manage without the Internet. ______ 2. Young people use the Internet for emails mainly. ______ 3. The most common use of the Internet is surfing the web. _______ 4. On average, people visit 13 websites a day. _______ 5. About 40% of adults use the Internet. _______ 短文理解 2 Tiny Tonga Launches Space Tourism Plan The tiny poverty-stricken South Pacific state of Tonga has always had serious problems raising money, and so it has always been entrepreneurial. It has sold Tongan passports to Hong Kong businessmen; it sold possible satellite broadcasting locations in space; it even officially changed to a different time zone to be the first country to welcome the new millennium.
Now Tonga’s latest money-making venture is a plan to become the world centre of space tourism. TheTonga government has made an agreement with a UScompany to allow it to use one of its 170 islands to launch rockets that will take tourists on week-long trips into space at a cost of US$2 million each. For this price, space tourists receive 60 days' training in a 'resort setting', followed by the holiday of a lifetime orbiting the Earth. Two astronaut pilots and four astronaut tourists will make the trip. However, scepticssay that these budgets are inadequate. Although they predict that space tourism will eventually bring an income of US$10 – 20 billion a year, they calculate that the budget of $8 million per trip will not be enough to pay for the required technology. Comparison with the current space tourism programme suggests this maths may be accurate. To ride the Russian Soyuz(the only tourist ride currently available) costs more than US$20 million per person. However, other people, including one important ex-cosmonaut , criticise the Russian government for raising money in this way, even though it uses the money for the space programme. In the ex-cosmonaut's opinion, it uses up Russia’s agreed quota of space missions without achieving anything. He also believes that these inexperienced tourists would be a danger in a difficult or life-threatening crisis in space. 6. Tonga was previously a rich country. ____ 7. Tonga was the first country to welcome the new millennium on 1st January 2000. ____ 8. The US government wants to use Tonga to launch rockets. _____ 9. There will be training before the tourists go into space. _____ 10. It costs about $ 20 million to launch a spacecraft. _____ 短文理解 3 Poll reveals TV news too negative A recent Time/CNN poll in the USAhas discovered that 75% of people agreed that the news media is "sensationalist", 63% found it "too negative" and 73% said they are "sceptical about the accuracy" of the news they are receiving.
Local news programmes in the USA are so dominated by stories of violence and crime that other topics like government, education and the environment are left with little airtime.1 Network broadcaster John Walters claimed, “This lack of information has resulted in negative feelings towards the media.” Crime reports, which often serve as lead stories, make up an average of 30.2% of news time on local TV news programmes in the USA. Media researcher Bob Smith reported, “53% of crime reports are about murder, but it is one of the least frequently committed crimes.” Another media study revealed that 42% of all local TV news broadcasts are stories about crime, disaster and war. One possible reason for this is that local television news is ratings driven2. Some market research suggests that viewers like to see stories of crime and violence, which increases the ratings of newscasts. Higher ratings mean higher advertising revenues. Mike Adams, a television executive, explained, "The increase in crime reports is because, on average3, almost half the money a local station makes comes from news." Many experts believe a steady diet of violence-oriented news broadcasts has serious effects. A spokesman for the National Television Violence Committee stated, “There are three main risks associated with viewing media violence. People learn aggressive behaviour. They become desensitisedto real-world violence. These lead to an increased fear of being a victim of violence, resulting in mistrust of others.” 11. The majority of people polled think that the news media is accurate. 12. There is not enough time to talk about a wider range of subjects on the news. 13. 53% of all crimes committed are murders. 14. Advertising companies invest in TV programmes with high ratings. 15. TV stations make too much money from news. 短文理解 4 When Steven King published his book Riding the Bullet, around two million people downloaded it from the Internet within hours. It was the first time that an electronic book had done big business, and it was a wake-up call for the publishing industry.
An electronic book, or e-book, is simply a version of a book that allows you to store and display it digitally. There are already thousands of classic and best-selling titles available on websites such as ebooks.com. E-book technology allows you to carry around a whole library in a small unit. You can also highlight a word to bring up its definition or increase the font size if you have bad eyesight. In fact, e-book readers are being developed for people who are visually impaired or dyslexic. Another advantage is that it lets you buy books in segments and carry them around easily, which should appeal to students. In fact, the University of South Dakotais planning to give hand-held devices to all its students to help them in their studies. However, for all this, the current e-book readers are unlikely to make it big. A recent report predicted sales of just 1.9 million in the next 5 years. And the reason? E-books are more difficult to read and they are just not as attractive as the printed word. 16. The writer warns that the publishing industry should be ready for an important change. 17. E-books will become much cheaper in the near future. 18. One advantage of e-books is that you can find the meanings of individual words easily. 19. Students will use libraries less in the future. 20. Sales of e-books are expected to increase rapidly in the future. 阅读理解 5 Many people in the UK have done parachute or bungee jumps for charity. People like to help charities and if they can have a bit of fun at the same time then everyone is happy. Usually the person doing the jump has responded to an advertisement in the paper asking for volunteers. The person receives a sponsorship form from the charity, which they complete with the names of friends, relatives and colleagues who promise to give money to the charity if the person does the jump. Once the person has enough sponsorship, he or she will do the jump and usually receives a certificate to show their sponsors. The sponsors then pay their money to the charity.
21. If you want to parachute or bungee jump in the UK you must do it for a charity. 22. People like to have fun and help charities. 23. A lot of sponsorship is needed before you can do a jump. 24. People always receive a certificate after doing a parachute or bungee jump. 25. The sponsors pay their money after the person has done the jump. 阅读理解 6 It is unusual these days for people not to have a TV, in fact many homes have two or three. However, more and more people are choosing to live without TV. The number of homes without a television in the UKhas been growing steadily for over 10 years now. Many people choose not to have a TV because they are worried about their children. One parent, Joan, said, ‘We got rid of our TV when our son was 4 because we found that he was more interested in watching television than playing, and we thought this wasn’t healthy’. Many people think that not having a TV has improved their lives:‘Since selling our television my wife and I read more, talk more and have more time for our hobbies’, said Paul, who has sold his TV. So, when people tell you that they cannot live without television, you can tell them that they are not following the latest trend! 26. The majority of homes in the UKhave more than one television. 27. The trend of not having a television is not new. 28. Joan’s son was an unhealthy child. 29. Paul thinks his life has improved since he sold his TV. 30. The latest trend is to have more than one television. 第五部分短文理解（正误判断）答案 1. T 2. NG 3. F 4. F 5. T 6. F 7. T 8. F 9. T 10. NG

因特网与现代社会 因特网对生活的影响 The Internet has become a symbol of modern society. For example, via the Internet, we can send a message to a friend or a relative in a distant place within seconds; we can talk to each other or even see each other; we can do shopping without going out; we can stay home and do business with foreign companies. In fact, we can do many things more easily and more cheaply using the Internet. So, I cannot imagine what society would be like without the Internet. 题目 2 Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write a story
about what happened to you or to someone else. You should write at least 80 words and base your story on the Chinese outline below:
1． 事件发生的时间和地点 2． 人物 3． 事件的经过 An Accident My uncle will never forget what happened to him yesterday. In the evening, he was invited to an inn. He enjoyed his dinner with his friends, drinking a lot of beers. As a result, he got drunk. He insisted on driving home after the meal, although his friends tried to persuade him not to do so. A few minutes later, he was winding his way on the street. And then his car ran into a tall tree. Fortunately, he was still alive, though seriously injured.

Saying something about going abroad for holidays (谈谈出国度假), 可以 包括以下内容： 1. How to choose a certain country. 2. Why are you willing to go abroad for holiday? 3. Advantages and disadvantages. 4. What are you going to do in the country? The number of people who prefer traveling abroad has been growing larger and larger in the past 10 years. I think one of the reasons for the changes may be the developing economy. Since people make more money now, they can afford for such a traveling. Traveling abroad can help to broaden their horizons to achieve the goal. It can also provide a different scene abroad from the ones at home. The last reason is that people want to relax themselves and live a better life. What effects can it bring about? On one hand, it can make the city more beautiful. People get a lot from traveling abroad and can give suggestion on the city's construction. It can also make foreigners know more about the city and give the city more chance. On the other hand, if more people travel abroad, it will be harmful to the local traveling companies. In a way, since every matter has its two sides, we must consider it carefully.

English is widely used throughout the world. So many people speak it as a second language. Online, you'll find lots of information in English. At international conferences, English is also used as the official language. Almost everyone knows that we should learn English well, but few of us know how to learn it well. Karl Marx has set a good example for us. He
once said, "When one is learning a foreign language, he must use the foreign language." In this way, he could use several languages. A saying goes, "Practice makes perfect." When we learn English, we should read more, speak more, listen to English from time to time and practisewriting every day. Don't be afraid of making mistakes. Only in this way can we learn it well. 题目 5 Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write an email

In the only six months from July to December, 2002, 17,600 people were injured and 3,900 people lost their lives in the traffic accidents. If you take a careful look at the chart and study the figures, you will find that the number of the people injured in the traffic accidents in City A has been doubled over nearly half a year. There were 2,000 people injured in July while in December the number of the injured went up to 4,200.There was an increase of 110%! As for the people killed in the accidents, in July, the figure was only 300, but in December it rose to 1,200, which was three times as big as it was in July. So the traffic problem has become a big headache for the city government.

Student Union May 4, 2007 My HomeTown My home town is a beautiful place. It stands beside a wide river and is rich in fish and rice. But in the old days it was a poor and backward little town. Many people had no work. They lived a hard life. In 1949 my hometown was liberated. Since then great changes have taken place there. The streets have been widened. Factories, schools, hospitals, cinemas and theatres have sprung up one after another. The life of the people is greatly improved. I love my hometown. All the more I love its people. They are working hard so as to make it still richer and more beautiful. On Developing Tourism Tourism, a smokeless industry, is developing rapidly in China. With the reform and opening-up policy being carried out, thousands upon thousands of foreign visitors are crowding into our country. Tourism as a form of enterprise brings Chinaa lot of benefits. In the first place, it is financially beneficial to the economic development of China. Secondly, tourism enables the Chinese people to know more about the outside world. On the other hand, the foreigners who have visited China are deeply impressed by the latest developments of our country and the friendliness and hospitality of our people. It is clear that tourism contributes a great deal to the friendship and mutual understanding between the Chinese people and people all over the world. Everything, however, has two sides. Tourism gives rise to a number of problems. For instance, it becomes a burden to our inefficient transportation system. Besides, the living standard of the average Chinese is still not high enough to be able to afford the many different sorts of expenses during long distance travels. Therefore, there are still a lot of obstacles hindering the expansion of tourism in our country.
