A Japanese marriage interview is held in a public place，such as a hotel or restaurant, and is attended by the boy and the girl，their parents and the matchmaker.Information about the couple and their families is exchanged over a cup of tea and a meal.Then the boy and the girl are left alone for a short time to
know each other.When they return home they have to tell the matchmaker whether they want to meet again or not.If both of them want a second meeting，the matchmaker arranges it，and after that they can decide whether to carry on the courtship themselves.Here Hiromi said with a gentle smile， “Not so long ago，the girl could never refuse to go out again with a boy who liked her, but now she can.I thought Yoshio was really nice.So I didn’t refuse.”
Yoshio continued： “When our parents realized we were serious about each other, they started to make arrangements for our wedding.My family paid the‘Yuino’ money to Hiromi’s.This money is to help pay for the wedding ceremony and for setting up house afterwards.We also gave her family a beautiful ornament to put in the best room of their house，So everyone knew that Hiromi was going to marry.Six months after our first meeting we were married.A traditional Japanese wedding is a wonderful ceremony, and our traditional custom of arranged marriage has given me a wonderful wife.

Questions 3l to 35 are based on the following passage.
College-bound American high school students usually have some combination of parents，teachers，guidance counselors，or peers to support them in the tough process of applying to and beginning college.Unfortunately，adults who want to go to college--particularly adults who have been out of school for a long time--generally have no such support system. “Adults have a much’ harder time starting out in college because，unlike regular students，they have adult obligations--raising children and working full time—-that often conflict with the demands of school Deepa Rao, a World Education expert. “Also, adults who have been out of school for a long time may not be academically prepared for college-1evel work.Some have little exposure to technologies like e-mail and internet research，which are an increasing part of college communication and courses.They may be unaware of available resources，such as financial aid，tutoring centers or mentoring programs：and may be unfamiliar with terms such as ‘bursar’，and ‘prerequisite.’And if you don’t know where to begin or what to do once you do get there，it’s easy to get overwhelmed and simply give up.”
The challenges that working adults face when going to college inspired Deepa to develop a web page and website as part of World Education’s National College Transition Network(NCTN)，an online forum for technical assistance，news，and helpful resources for educators，policy makers，and others interested in adult learning.The new website is a counterpart(对应物)to the NCTN，set up to guide adults who are considering co1lege through the process of applying to and succeeding in school.
The website is arranged like a college campus，with ‘buildings’ representing the sort of departments and classrooms housed on a college campus.Each building contains ‘classes’ that describe the admissions process，where to look for grants and scholarships，and lists resources，where an out-of-practice student can review reading, writing and math. There are also lists of advice and resources to help students with their college life.Another helpful aspect of this interactive，multimedia site is its audio capacity： all texts can be read to the visitor.This particular feature is especially helpful for people with visual problems or learning disabilities.
The cycle of learning runs from cradle to grave，and World Education works to break down barriers to education for people of all ages，all over the world.

Ⅶ.Translation from English into Chinese (15 points)
In the old days，the lines between work and leisure time were markedly clearer.People left their offices at a predictable time，were often completely disconnected from their jobs as they traveled to and from work, and were off-duty once they were home.That’s no longer true. In today's highly competitive job market, employers demand increased productivity, expecting employees to put m longer hours and to keep in touch almost constantly via fax cell phones，e-mail，or other communications devices.As a result，employees feel the need to check what’s going at the office, even on days off.They feel pressured to work harder and longer, change their work tasks more frequently, and they worry more about job security.
