Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage:

One of the main challenges facing many countries is how to maintain their identity in the face of globalization and the growing multi-language trend.” One of the main reasons for economic failure in many African countries is the fact that, with a few important exceptions, mother-tongue education is not practiced in any of the independent African states,” said Neville Alexander, Director of the Project for the Study of Alternative Education in South Africa at the University of Cape Town.

In response to the spread of English and the increased multi-language trends arising from immigration, many countries have introduced language laws in the last decade. In same, the use of language other than the national language is banned in public spaces such as advertising posters.

Part English-Chinese Translation (20 minutes, 20 points)

66. Concerning the current education system in China, our practice of cultivating people still has quite a few drawbacks. 67. While overemphasizing the passing on of knowledge, our basic education overlooks development of non-intelligence characters. 68. This may involve interest, technical ability, and moral make-up of our youngsters. 69. Under such circumstances, it is therefore important to accelerate transition from test-oriented education to quality-based education. 70. Though it is easier said than done, we must adhere to the belief and try every means to promote such useful transition.
