The number of speakers of English in Shakespeare’s time is estimated to have been about five million. Today it is estimated that some 260 million people speak it as a native language, mainly in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. In addition to the standard varieties of English found in these areas, there are a great many regional and social varieties of the language, as well as various levels of usage that are employed both in its spoken and written forms.
It is virtually impossible to estimate the number of people in the world who have acquired an adequate working knowledge of English in addition to their own languages. The purposes for which English is learned and the situations in which such learning takes place are so varied that it is difficult to define and still more difficult to assess what constitutes (構成) an adequate working knowledge for each situation.
The main reason for the widespread demand for English is its present-day importance as a world language. Besides serving the infinite needs of its native speakers, English is a language in which some of the most important works in science, technology, and other fields are being produced, and not always by native speakers. It is widely used for such purposes as meteorological and airport communications, international conferences, and the spread of information over the radio and television networks of many nations. It is a language of wider
communication for a number of developing countries, especially former British colonies. Many of these countries have multilingual (多種語言的) populations and need a language for internal communication in such matters as government, commerce, industry, law and education as well as for international communication and for access to the scientific and technological developments in the West.

A. it serves as a language that is needed for international communication

32.What type of developing countries would be most likely to use English?
A. Those geographically close to the United States.
B. Those having close relationship with the United States and Great Britain.
C. Former colonies of Great Britain.
D. Countries where international conferences are often held.
33.It is difficult to assess what constitutes an adequate working knowledge of English because ____.
A. there are too many people speaking English in the world
B. people in the world learn English in a variety of ways
C. there are so many multilingual peoples

Large companies need a way to reach the savings of the public at large. The same problem, on a smaller scale, faces practically every company trying to develop new products and creating new jobs. There can be little prospect of raising the sort of sums needed from friends and people we know, and while banks may agree to provide short-term finance, they are generally unwilling to provide money on a permanent basis for long-term projects. So companies turn to the public, inviting people to lend them money or take a share in the business in exchange for a share in future profits. This they do by issuing stocks and shares in the business through the Stock Exchange (證券交易所). By doing so they can put into circulation the savings of individuals and institutions, both at home and overseas.
When the saver needs his money back, he does not have to go to the company with whom he originally placed it. Instead, he sells his shares through a stockbroker to some other saver who is seeking to invest his money.
Many of the services needed both by industry and by each of us are provided by the government or by local authorities. Without hospitals, roads, electricity, telephones, railways, this country could not function. All these require continuous spending in new equipment and new development if they are to serve us properly, requiring more money than is raised through taxes alone. The government, local authorities, and nationalized industries, therefore, frequently need to borrow money to finance major capital spending, and they, too, come to the Stock Exchange.
There is hardly a man or woman in this country whose job or whose standard of living does not depend on the ability of his or her employers to raise money to finance new development. In one way or another, this new money must come from the savings of the country. The Stock Exchange exists to provide a channel through which these savings can reach those who need finance.
36.Almost all companies involved in new production and development must ______.
A. depend on the population as a whole for finance
B. persuade the banks to provide long-term finance
C. collect large sums of money from friends and people they know
D. rely on their own financial resources
37.The money which enables these companies to go ahead with their projects is ______.
A. repaid to its original owners as soon as possible
B. raised by the selling of shares in the companies
C. exchanged for part ownership of the Stock Exchange
D. invested in different companies on the Stock Exchange
38.When the savers want their money back they _____________.
A. ask another company to obtain their money for them
B. turn to other people to borrow money
C. put their shares in the company back on the market
D. transfer their money to more successful companies
39.Many essential services on which we depend are ____________.
A. run by the industries
B. in constant need of financial support
C. financed wholly by rates and taxes
D. unable to provide for the needs of the population
40.The Stock Exchange makes it possible for the government, local authorities and nationalized industries_________.
A. to borrow as much money as they wish
B. to make certain everybody saves money
C. to raise money to finance new developments
D. to make everybody lend money to them
