Unit 1 Cultural relics
Ⅰ.阅读理解 A 导学号 01830246 Who would have thought that potato fries could unite an entire country? Well, that seems to be the case in Belgium where there is currently a
movement to have Belgian potato fries officially recognized as cultural heritage. The fries are served in a paper cone(圆锥体) from a “fritkot”， which is a shack(小屋)or a food truck. Across Belgium, there are at least 5,000 fritkots which is 10 times more common than McDonald's restaurants in the United States. The movement for the fries to be declared official cultural heritage was started by UNAFRI, also known as the national association of fritkot owners. They claim that their establishments represent Belgium very well. “A cone of potato chips is Belgium in miniature(微模型). What's amazing is that this way of thinking is the same, in spite of differences among communities and regions ，” added spokesman Bernard Lefevre. Tourists can even be seen to line up with locals in Brussels to buy a cone of fries from well?known fritkots such as Frit Flagey and Maison Antoine. “Before I came here, the only thing I knew about Belgium was that they liked their fries，” said Rachael Webb, a tourist from Ottowa, Canada. In order to be recognized by UNESCO, it has to be formally supported by the Belgian government of culture. As of right now, UNESCO has a list of 314 items of “cultural heritage” that they say is worthy enough to be preserved. Items on the list include Turkish coffee and the old native singing of the Central African Republic. Potatoes reached Belgium in the 16th century, but it wasn't until the 19th century that they were cut up into fries and sold as a meal. 文章大意：比利时人正在努力为自己国家的炸薯条申请成为“文化遗产”。 1．It is considered that potato fries could unite Belgium because they ________.

B (2016·开封市高三定位模拟) 导学号 01830247 Why do Chinese people love hot pot so much? As the winter months are coming in, more and more people are sitting around a table, enjoying this kind of traditional meal. I find myself wondering what it is about this traditional meal, which has existed for more than 1,000 years. What makes it a Chinese food favorite? It seems that the answer lies beyond the dish itself. Hot pot isn't just designed to keep you warm during the cold months; it's also a social experience. It's a “theater” cooked food that turns a meal into an event. There is a lot of fun for everyone to have in adding some foods to the hot pot. Hot pot is eaten over two to three hours. For this reason, it is often considered an evening's entertainment, and a time to spend with friends and families. However, many Westerners would be put off by the idea of other people sticking chopsticks in their food. When we come to eat at the table in the UK, we tend to have our own shares, although the experience is still a social one. A similar experience to the hot pot can be found in Korean barbecue restaurants, which let you cook your own meat. This allows people to have their meat done however they want. For most Westerners, the idea of going to a restaurant to cook their own food is very strange. But having a go, I find it's now one of my favorite meals in Beijing. The steam from the pot left my clothes smelling of food when I got home, but perhaps this was also part of the experience. When the cold wind is blowing outside, I am sitting around with my good friends, eating and drinking. For me it's like a dinner party where my taste buds (味蕾) and my appetite are equally satisfied in the warm company of friends. 文章大意：本文介绍了中国人为什么爱吃火锅，除了火锅本身美味之外，还是一次社交 经历。 6．What is the main reason why hot pot is popular in China? A．It has a history of over 1,000 years. B．It is a fun social experience. C．It serves people with many kinds of foods. D．It keeps people very warm in winter. 答案：B 细节理解题。由第二段第一句“Hot pot isn't just designed to keep you warm during the cold months; it's also a social experience.”可知，除了火锅本身
美味之外，还是一次社交经历。 7．We can conclude from the article that British people generally________. A．enjoy cooking their own food in restaurants B．prefer a Korean barbecue to Chinese hot pot C．don't like sharing food with others in restaurants D．don't mind the smell of food staying on their clothes 答案：C 推理判断题。由第三段可知，西方人更希望一人一份分餐吃，所以选 C。 8．How long do people spend in enjoying the traditional meal? A．More than four hours. B．Over one hour. C．About three hours. D．All the evening. 答案： C 细节理解题。 由第三段第一句“Hot pot is eaten over two to three hours.” 可知。 9．What is the author's attitude to hot pot? A．Serious. C．Humorous. B．Tired. D．Appreciative.
答案：D 推理判断题。通读全文可知，作者还是很喜欢火锅这种文化氛围的。 Ⅱ.语法填空 导学号 01830248
