Can Capello succeed?

 

by ANDREW MACASKILL, 21ST 

  

  严厉的卡佩罗能带领英格兰队再创辉煌吗?

 

ITALIANS have contributed a great deal to English culture. They introduced pizza, coffee, central heating and stone roads ______ the country. Now England is turning to Italy to help restore (恢复) ______ football pride.

 

The Italian Fabio Capello has been appointed as the new England football manager. The 61-year-old replaces (替代) Steve McClaren, ______ was fired as the team's manager last month after England failed to qualify (取得资格) for the European Championships.

 

If England's previous managers were quiet and reserved (内敛的), Capello is the complete opposite. He is well known for his fiery (暴躁的) personality and is often seen yelling  ______ his players.

 

When one Italian journalist was asked to describe Capello, he said: "You want to know about Fabio Capello's human side? Well, that's easy. He doesn't have one." So if England's players decide to disobey him, then they can expect to be heavily punished.

"I am very proud to be the England manager. It's a dream come true," Capello said. "But like with all dreams, I hope I don't have a bad awakening (梦醒)."

 

One of the problems Capello has to face is to work out why England's ______[gift] footballers failed to make it to the European Championships. ______ having world-class individual (单独的) players, they do not play well together as a team.

Capello's abilities are not ______ question. He has won nine league titles in 16 seasons with four different teams. His aggressive approach to management has worked for him before. Now English people hope that it will work for their team, too.

 

 

 

   

Students who say they never or hardly ever used dictionaries often speak English well but usually write poorly, because they make many mistakes.

    The students who use dictionaries most do not learn especially well either. The ones who look up every new word do not read fast. Therefore they do not have time to read much. Those who use small two-language dictionaries have the worst problems. Their dictionaries often give only one or two words as translations of English. But one English word often has many translations in a foreign language and one foreign word has many translations in English.

    The most successful students are those who use large college edition dictionaries with about 100,000 words but do not use them too often. When they are reading, these students first try to get the general idea and understand new words from the context. Then they reread and use the dictionary to look up only key words that they still do not understand. They use dictionaries more for writing. If they are not sure how to spell a word, or divide it into syllables (音节), they always use a dictionary. Also, if they think a noun might have an unusual plural form, they check these in a dictionary.

1. The writer tends to think that        .

    A. choose a good dictionary, and you’ll be successful in learning English

    B. dictionaries are not necessary to the students who learn English

    C. it is very important for students to use good dictionaries properly

2. According to the passage, which of the following is wrong?

    A. Dictionaries have little effect on learning to speak English.

    B. Whatever new words you meet while reading, never use dictionaries.

    C. Small two-language dictionaries have serious defects (缺陷).

    D. Reading something for the first time, you’d better not use dictionaries.

3 This passage mainly tells us        .

    A. that students shouldn’t use small two-language dictionaries

    B. what were the defects of small two-language dictionaries

    C. why students should use large college edition dictionaries
