Moutai is China’ s most famous liquor which was selected as the drink for national banquets right before the founding of the People’ s Republic of China.

It is said that the villagers along the Shishui River started to make Moutai 4,000 years ago. In the West Han Dynasty, the people produced Moutai liquor of superior quality, which was paid as the tribute to the emperor. Since the Tang Dy- nasty, this local beverage has been shipped overseas by the marine silk road.

Moutai features mild flavour and unique fragrance, and helps relieve fatigue and achieve tranquility if taken proper- ly, thus winning great popularity among domestic and for- eign consumers.

Online dictionaries are becoming increasingly popular.

What a fanta- sitic age it is!

今天,茶不仅是一种健康的饮品,而且是中国文化的一个组成部分。越来越多的国际游客一边品茶,一边了解中国文化。 思 Tea has a history of 5,000 years. One legend goes that when Shen Nong was about to drink some boiled water, a few wild tree leaves fell into the kettle and gave off sweet fragrance. He drank a little and found it very refreshing, which led to the discovery of tea.

Since then, tea became popular in China. Tea gardens ap- peared everywhere, tea merchants became rich, and expen- sive and graceful tea set even became a symbol of social status.

Today, tea is not only a healthy drink but also part of the Chinese culture. More and more international tourists begin to understand the Chinese culture as they drink tea.


Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay on the use of PowerPoint(PPT) in class. You can start your essay with the sentence “The use of Power?Point is becoming increasingly popular in class” . You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.


The use of PowerPoint is becoming increasingly popular in class. We can see many teachers presenting to their studdents necessary teaching materials with the help of Power?Point, which has become the most common subsidiary teaching method throughout the globe.

The reasons why teachers enjoy using PowerPoint while teaching instead of writing on those traditional and old-fashioned blackborads lie in the following three re?spects. To begin with, using PowerPoint to present knowl?edge can save both teachers and students plenty of time in class. Furthermore, teaching through PowerPoint is so con?venient for lecturers that they can effortlessly and rapidly show the knowledge that needs learning through just sever?al taps at the remote-controller. Besides, PowerPoint gener?ally has more storage of information because, theoretically, there is almost no litmit of digital space for this slide show presentation program on computers.

All in all, PowerPoint is one of the greatest inventions in such a digital world. With it, teachers can not only enhance their efficiency of imparting knowledge in class but also promote the enjoyment of modern classes through present?ing more vivid materials.

If you travel in Beijing, you must do two things: climbing the Great Wall and tasting Beijing roast duck. The wellknown Beijing roast duck used to be available only in the imperial court, but now is supplied in hundreds of restaurants in the city.

Beijing roast duck originated in the Ming Dynasty 600 years ago, when chefs from all parts of the country were selected to cook for the emperor in the capital. People believed that it’s a great honour to cook in the palace for only those with outstanding cooking skills could be offered the job. In fact, it’s these royal chefs who have gradually perfected the cooking of Beijing roast duck.(综合媒体报道)
