The Rio Tinto is an unusual 100-kilometer river running from the Sierra Morena mountains of
Andalusia into the Gulf of Cdiz on the southwestern coast of Spain. What makes it so unique is its deep
red water. In Spanish, the name Rio Tinto (31) means red or stained river.
For the past 5,000 years, the Rio Tinto (32) civilizations with invaluable metals. The river
bed has an abundance of elements, such as gold, silver, copper, sulfur, and iron. It played a key role in
providing the minerals which made the Copper and Bronze Ages possible. (33) , it is believed
some of the first Roman coins were made from silver and gold taken from the Rio Tinto.
The rivers dark red color is a result of these mining activities. The mining process exposes sulfide
minerals, such as pyrite, (34) air and water, which transforms sulfide into sulfuric acid. This
sulfuric acid then oxidizes iron in the river, producing the red sediment which has dyed the river red.
Besides its economic value, the Rio Tinto has also proved helpful to the scientific community.
Scientists have been able to observe how several odd organisms survive in its waters. Since the river is

V. Structure ( 2 10%)

It is believed that William Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564, in Stratford-on-Avon. His
father, John Shakespeare, produced gloves, bought and sold wool, and lent money to other people.
(36) Shakespeares mother, Mary, was the daughter of a prominent farmer. Besides William, she
gave birth to seven other children, but only five lived beyond childhood.
(37) However, for reasons unknown, Shakespeare left school when he was 15 and did not
pursue further studies. Just three years later, in 1582, he married Anne Hathaway, a woman eight years
his senior. Soon after, they started a family.
(38) But in the 1590s, he left Stratford-on-Avon and moved to London to pursue a career
in theatre. In 1599, he joined The Lord Chamberlains Men, an acting company protected by the Queen
herself. The actors of the day were jacks-of-all-trades. (39)
During his lifetime, Shakespeare authored an impressive 37 plays. His achievements also included
writing 154 sonnets. Each of these poems is fourteen-lines long. (40) Over the years, they have
been published countless times and are available today in everything from pocket editions to beautifully
illustrated books.

VI. Reading Comprehension ( 2 10%)


Since 2001, China has loosened severe travel restrictions, and the rapid rise of the bourgeoisie has
sent curiousbut often churlish or even destructivevisitors throughout the world. There have been
reports of Chinese tourists littering famous historic sites and even defecating in public. One tourist even
opened the door of an airplane, as it prepared for takeoff, reportedly to get fresh air.
One reason tourism is hard to regulate is its positive associations, not only with pastime and
leisure but also with cultural prestige. People are proud of the vistas, landmarks and monuments that
their homelands are best known for. Though many local officials around the world are exasperated by
tourists boorish and disrespectful behavior and have appealed for a crackdown on tourism, their requests
are usually rejected by their national government, which want the tax revenue from tourists. Therefore,
efforts to regulate tourism arent always popular.
However, Denmark and France are exceptions. The quiet zones, the residential areas where
tourists, once they enter, are expected to respect the local peoples lifestyles, are emblematic of the
Danish philosophy toward tourists: They should blend in with the Danish way of life, not the other way
around. The Danes have prohibited foreigners from buying vacation cottages on their seacoasts and
strictly limited bars and restaurants from taking over Copenhagen. The question, says a spokesman for
the citys tourism office, is: How do you take advantage of the growth in tourism and not be taken over
by mass tourism?
Like Copenhagen, Paris uses noise and zoning laws to keep tourism from getting out of control.
And it handles the flow of tourists with the seriousness of a military operation. The Eiffel Tower, with
seven million visitors each year, is the worlds most heavily visited paid attraction. Tickets are limited
and timed to the half-hour. Visitors move up and down under the watch of discreet guards. The gardens
surrounding the tower are kept manicured by a full-time crew of 38 workers. Loitering is forbidden,
street vendors strictly regulated. Similar restrictions also apply for other tourist spots, like the gardens of
Claude Monet in nearby Giverny.
Paris is, first of all, for Parisians. That was illustrated in a rare standoff between tourists and
locals. For several years, tourists had disfigured the Pont des Arts by hanging padlocks on the pedestrian
span as a sign of love. Parisians despised these love locks. After several compromises failed, the city
government removed them.
Without serious government attention, many beloved places will be at risk of being trammeled and
damagedwhat those in the tourism industry call being loved to death.
