(Xinhua)
Updated: 2008-02-22 15:16

 

China's latest effort to promote traditional culture among ______[it] younger generation has raised controversy in a nation ______ diverse opinions and options are gaining a grudging respect.

The country's Ministry of Education on Thursday announced a pilot program to teach students in primary and secondary schools its traditional Peking Opera. Deemed one of the nation's unique cultural treasures, the opera will be added into music courses for 200 schools in 10 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions throughout China.

The move immediately drew heated reaction from______  public.

"I support this project wholeheartedly," said Zhu Shihui, a renowned Peking Opera performer. "Interest should be fostered since childhood. I myself began to get fascinated with Peking Opera whilst in primary school. ______ eventually became my lifetime career," he told Xinhua.

The general public, ______, are not as enthusiastic. In a survey by Netease, a news portal in China, nearly 70 percent of voters were against the project.

In another opinion poll by China's leading web portal Sina.com, ______over 21,000 respondents, only 27 percent believe setting up the course will help promote traditional Chinese culture.

Nearly 38 percent think the course should not be compulsory as students' choices should be respected, and the ______[remain] 35 percent propose different local operas be taught in different areas since China boasts a huge reservoir of local operas.

 

What makes one person more intelligent than another? What makes one person a genius, like the brilliant Albert Einstein, and another person a fool? Are people born intelligent or stupid, or is intelligence the result of where and how you live? These are very old question and the answers to them are still not clear.

We know, however, that just being born with a good mind is not enough. In some ways, the mind is like a leg or an arm muscle. It needs exercise. Mental (done with the mind) exercise is particularly important for young children. Many child psychologists (心理学家) think that parents should play with their children more often and give them problems to think about. The children are then more likely to grow up bright and intelligent. If, on the other hand, children are left alone a great deal with nothing to do, they are more likely to become dull and unintelligent.

Parents should also be careful what they say to young children. According to some psychologists, if parents are always telling a child that he or she is a fool or an idiot, then the child is more likely to keep doing silly and foolish things. So it is probably better for parents to say very positive (helpful) things to their children, such as “That was a very clever thing you did.” or “You are such a smart child.”

1. The words “intelligent” and “brilliant” in the first paragraph probably mean ___ while “dull” in the second paragraph means ___.

   D. a famous person…an ordinary person

3. A person ___ is more likely to become a genius.

   A. whose parents are clever

   B. often thinking about difficult problem

   C. often helped by his parents and teachers

   D. born with a good brain and putting it to active use

4. It is better for parents ___.

A. to praise and encourage their children more often

   B. to be hard on their children

   C. to leave their children alone with nothing to do
