High in the Swiss Alps many years ago, there lived a lonely shepherd（牧羊人）boy who longed for a friend to share his evenings.（很多年以前，在瑞士阿尔卑斯山上住着一个牧羊人，他期望能找到一个朋友在夜晚与他为伴。） One night he saw three old men, each holding a glass.
The first old man said：“Drink this liquid and you shall be victorious in battle.”
The second old man said：“Drink this liquid and you shall have countless riches.”
The last old man said：“I offer you the happiness of music-----the horn（号角）.”
The boy chose the third glass, The next day, he came upon a great horn, ten feet in length, When he put his lips to it, a beautiful melody（旋律） floated across the valley. He had found a friend.
So goes the legend（传说） of the horn. First known in the ninth century, the horn was used by herdsmen to call cattle, for its deep tones echoed across the mountainsides. Even today, on a quiet summer evening, its music can be heard floating among the peaks.
6.The passage tells us his lonely job about the shepherd boy.
7.The boy choose to drink the glass offered by the last old man because the boy was thirsty.
8.After the shepherd boy found the horn, he discovered it was like a new-found friend.
9.Today the horn is heard in the Swiss Alps when it rains.
10.The Legend of the Horn would be the best title for the passage.
In the United States, it is not customary to telephone someone very early in the morning. （在美国通常不会在清晨给人家打电话。） If you telephone him early in the day, while he is shaving or having breakfast, the time of the call shows that the matter is very important and requires immediate attention. The same meaning is attached to telephone calls made after 11:00 pm. If someone receives a call during sleeping hours, he assumes it's a matter of life or death. The time chosen for the call communicates its importance.
In social life, time plays a very important part. In the U.S.A. guests tend to feel they are not highly regarded if the invitation to a dinner party is extended only three or four days before the party date. But it is not true in all countries. In other areas of the world, it may be considered foolish to make an appointment too far in advance because plans which are made for a date more than a week away tend to be forgotten. The meaning of time differs in different parts of the world. Thus, misunderstandings arise between people from different cultures that treat time differently. Promptness is valued highly in American life, for example. If people are not prompt, they may be regarded as impolite or not fully responsible. In the U.S. no one would think of keeping a business associate waiting for an hour, it would be too impolite. A person, who is 5 minutes late, will say a few words of explanation, though perhaps he will not complete the sentence.
