Very soon a computer will be able to teach you English. It will also be able to translate any language for you too. It's just one more incredible result of the development of microprocessors-those tiny parts of a computer commonly known as "silicon chips".So give up going to classes， stop buying more textbooks and relax. In a couple of years you won't need the international language of English.
Already Texas instruments in the United States are developing an electronic translation machine. Imagine a Spanish secretary， for example， who wants to type a letter from the boss to a business man in Sweden. All he or she will have to do is this ： first type the letter will appear on another television screen in Stockholm in perfect Swedish.
And that's not all. Soon a computer will be able to teach you English， if you really want to learn the language. You'll sit in front of a television screen and practice endless structures. The computer will tell you when you are correct and when you are wrong. It will even talk to you because the silicon chips can change electrical impulses into sounds. And clever programmers can predict the responses you， the learner， are likely to make.
So think of it. You will be able to teach yourself at your own pace. You will waste very little time， and you can work at home. And if after all that， you still can't speak English you can always use the translating machine. In a few years， therefore， perhaps there will be no need for BBC Modern English， or BBC English by Radio programs—no more textbooks or teachers of English. Instead of buying an exciting new textbook， the computer will ask you to replace it with microprocessor one thousand nine hundred and eighty-four. Fast， reliable and efficient language learning and translating facilities will be available to you. Think of that no more tears or embarrassing moments. One little problem is that a computer can’t laugh yet-but the scientists are working on it. Happy learning!

Zhao Wenxuan， a film star from Taiwan has been fond of seeing films since his childhood. He would sometimes go to the cinema for the same film four or five times. He also enjoys literature(文学)and art. Before he took the film acting as his career(职业) ，he has been on the staff(工作人员)of an airline in Taibei. His change of job to acting was quite by chance.
One day， he came across in the paper an advertisement for a leading actor to appear in the film named "Wedding Feast" . Full of excitement， he answered the job and by telephoning the director of the film， Mr. Li An. It was this telephone call that had changed all his life. At last the director decided him to be the very person for the role. That he could be chosen owed much to his good command of English， natural manners and low pay for this work in the film.
The film "wedding Feast" proved to be a hit. It won the German Golden Bear Award and entered the competition for one of the Oscar Academy Awards. Also， it was the first Taiwan film that was permitted to be shown in the U.S. Thanks to the film Zhao Wenxuan became popular in Taiwan， Hong Kong and Southeast Asia.
In 1994， Mr. zhao acted as leading role in the Hongkong film "Red Rose and White Rose"， in which many film stars like Ms. Chen Chong from U.S and Mr. Ye Yuqing from the local area took parts in it. This film was named for 10 prizes of the Taiwan Golden Horse Prize and at last it was awarded five prizes for the best play， actress and music. Zhao has regarded the film as one of his favorite films since he stepped into the acting circle.
Sine 1993， Mr. Zhao has taken part in the shooting of 13 films， most of which are highly thought of.
Mr. Zhao said that Taiwan should think to cooperate(合作) mush with the mainland in the film producing industry and it would benefit each other.

Copernicus was born in Torun， Poland， on February 19，1473. Little is known about his early life except that his father died when he was 10. An uncle adopted(收养)him， his two sisters， and his brother. The uncle saw to it that the two boys received a good education. Copernicus went to the University of Cracow. There he studied such subjects as Latin， mathematics， and astronomy， It was probably at that time that he changed his Polish name， Niklas Koppernigk， to the Latin form of Nicolaus Copernicus. In 1496 Copernicus went to Italy， where he spent the next 10 years studying at various universities .
In Copernicus'time people still believed that all things-the sun， the stars， and the planets-moved around the earth. It was an old belief that few men had ever questioned. Aristotle had based his theory of astronomy on this belief. Because the Chruch had long been the center of learning， the theory was also linked to religious(宗教的)beliefs.
In 1506 Copernicus returned to his homeland. A few years later he began to work for the Church. All those years Copernicus carried on his work in astronomy. He had just the most basic equipment and， like other scientists of his day， made observations with only his eyes. Still， using mathematics and logic(逻辑)， Copernicus worked out a different theory， which held that the planets went around the sun.
Copernicus did not announce his ideas. He did not want to make trouble. But he could not hid the scientific truth. So he talked about his theory with his friends， who strongly advised him to have his work published. His great book， On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Bodies， appeared at the very end of his life. Copernicus saw the first copy on the day he died， May 24， 1543.

( )48. From the passage we can see that astronomy is
A the life experience of great men
B the movement of the stars and the planets
C the scientific study of natural objects in space
D the theories developed by scientists of old times
( )49. Copernicus developed his theory
A using various telescopes
B based on Aristotle's beliefs
C through observations and reasoning
D under the encouragement of his friends
( )50. The writer of the passage wants us to know that
A Copernicus did not tell about his discovery until the day of his death
B for many years Copernicus dared to do nothing openly against the Church
C pushed by his friends Copernicus decided to write a book in May 1543
D shortly before he got back to Poland Copernicus started to work for the Church
