The abacus is an ancient form of a calculating instrument. It
looks extremely simple, and is totally portable and unbreakable as
it is usually made of wood or plastic. Yet, in the hands of an
expert, this simple tool is quick and deadly accurate in
calculating everything from grocery bills to insurance premiums.
Only a few years ago, when digital calculators became widely and
cheaply available, many predicted that this outmoded machine would
become a thing of the past. . As the use of
calculators spread, some educators began to complain that pressing
keys was not really the best way to grasp the fundamentals of
mathematics. Some accountants and businessmen in Korea, Taiwan and
Hong Kong began to realize that the abacus is still useful in
certain calculating jobs.
The main reason for the renewed interest is that the abacus
makes it easy to grasp the concept of mathematics. Students
knowledgeable in the use of the abacus have consistently been
rated higher in basic mathematics than their contemporaries

Modern society produces tons of unwanted, apparently useless,

People have realized that if the world is not to become a rubbish

Exercise is important throughout your life. It prevents you from
becoming overweight and cuts down the rise of heart disease later.
Between the ages of 11 and 16 your muscles double in strength.
Your heart, mostly muscle, doubles in weight and other organs
inside the body grow much larger at the same time. Exercise helps
all these developments within the body to take place smoothly.
To develop a good body shape you must take regular, vigorous
exercise. This is any series of movements which make your heart
and breathing rates speed up and which make you hot and sweaty.
Emotions such as fear, excitement, shyness and anger can also
cause your body to behave as if you had taken vigorous exercise.
You must get rid of that extra energy caused by strong emotions or
you will become tense. Exercise gets rid of that extra energy and
restores your sense of well-being. As you push your body to work
harder, your mind moves away from your problems; you are less
likely to allow them to upset you.

People who know one another well may sit or walk together for long
periods without feeling it necessary to speak. But, otherwise,
silence between people is distinctly awkward. If, for instance, we
invite people to our house and there are long silences in the
conversation, we fell things are not going well and do our best to
get the talking going.
Because words can break silence, and thus remove tension, we
often use them for this reason and not always to express an idea.
For example, when two people are introduced, one says, "How do you
do?" This is not really a question, despite its apparent meaning;
and the other person will usually reply, "Very well, thank you."
This is the conversational formula. The purpose is not to
communicate meaning but to break the tension, while conveying a
vague goodwill towards the new acquaintance.

Propaganda is the most terrible weapon so far developed. It is
worse than poison gas. If the wind is in the right direction, gas
may kill a few and injure others; but the possibilities of
controlling the public mind by holding back or changing the facts
are appalling. One is so helpless in the face of it. No one can
think intelligently without knowing the facts; and if the facts

destroyed and becomes a farce.

Visitors to Britain are always complaining about English food.
But they do not really know what they are talking about because
they rarely get a chance to eat it. Most of the restaurants in
large towns have foreign owners and serve foreign food. When
visitors are invited to eat in an English home their hosts often
fell that they must offer them something foreign and exotic.
People who do know English food are aware that at its best it
can be really very good. On the other hand, it is true to say that
it is sometime terrible. Part of the problem is that the English
are not really interested in food. So they don''t generally spend
the necessary time and effort needed to cook really good meals.
They prefer food that is simple and easy to cook, or ready
prepared food which only needs heating up before eating.
You can find the best English food in the country away from the
large towns, where life is slower and people are not in such a
hurry. But, of course, most visitors come to London. They come
because they are interested in shopping and sightseeing. They do
not come because of the food, so why should they complain about

The American concept of success has not changed much over the
two centuries of its existence. The average American thinks about
personal success in terms quite different from the rest of the
world. First, it has always meant providing your family with a
decent standard of living with some margin of comfort. Second, it
means ending your life in a higher and more prosperous position
than you began it. To an American, it is clear that success is the
result of hard work, self-reliance, and is "God''s reward" for
American virtue. The lesson that success lay in your own hand
became ingrained because it was within the reach of any free
person. Because Americans have consistently been "successful"
within this meaning of the term, they have not altered this view
to any great degree.
객 12. 윗 글에서 "this meaning of the term"의 의미를 바르게 설명한
1) In America anyone can become successful through his own
2) Only those who enjoy true freedom can become successful in

Dr. Audlin was a psycho-analyst. he had adopted the profession
by accident and practised it with misgivings. When the war broke
out he had not been long qualified and was getting experience at
various hospitals: he offered his services to the authorities, and
after a time was sent out to France. It was then that he
discovered his singular gift. He could soothe certain paths by the
touch of his cool, firm hands, and by talking to them often induce
sleep in men who were suffering from sleeplessness. He spoke
slowly. His voice had no particular colour, and its tone did not
alter with the words he uttered, but it was musical and soft. He
told men that they must rest, that they mustn''t worry, that they
must sleep; and rest stole into their tired bones, a sense of
peace pushed their anxieties away, and slumber fell on their tired
eyelids. Dr. Audlin found that by speaking to men with that low
monotonous voice of his, by looking at them with his pale, quiet
eyes, by stroking their weary foreheads with his long firm hands,
he could soothe their worries, resolve the conflicts that troubled
them, and banish the fears that made their lives a torment.

Bilbo was very rich and very peculiar, and had been the wonder

at Bag End was full of tunnels stuffed with treasure. And if that
was not enough for fame, there was also his prolonged vigour to
marvel at. Time wore on, but it seemed to have little effect on
Bilbo. At ninety he was much the same as at fifty. At ninety-nine
they began to call him well-preserved; but unchanged would have

Pigs have always been important and useful farm animals, but for
centuries people have considered them to be dirty, stupid and
greedy. None of these negative qualities has much to do with pigs:
in fact, all of them are unfair descriptions of this animal.
When you see pigs wallowing in the mud, don''t jump to the
conclusion that they are especially dirty creatures. They are
doing it because, unlike human beings and other animals, they have
no sweat glands to serve as an automatic cooling system. Since mud
is cool and moist, pigs head for it the minute hot weather becomes
too much for them. However, in comparison with most other farm
animals, pigs keep themselves clean.
Another false notion about pigs is that they are stupid. Any
farmer will tell you that pigs are as smart as any other animals
and that they can be trained about as easily as dogs. Pet pigs can
be taught to trot around barnyards pulling small carts, and they
will patiently act as horses for small children. The term
"piggyback rude" is not an idle or invented expression.
The expression "eat like a pig" is another phrase that fosters
more misconceptions. Farmers who feed pigs slops and garbage are
certainly guilty of making pigs, in turn, seem a sloppy. Pigs
don''t overeat, (a) . It is a proven fact that human beings are
