    (23)At the entrance to one of the ancient temples of Petra in Jordan, there is an inscription carved deeply into the soft red rock. It looks as if it has been there for centuries. It could have been written by one of King Herod’s soldiers, when they were imprisoned in this town in 37 B.C. But closer inspection reveals that it is not so ancient after all. It reads:

    Shane and Wendy from Sydney were here. April 16, 1996.

    slide20

    Easy question(38): What color of the rock did people carve the inscription on?

    • What color is the rock on which people carved the inscription?
    • Difficult question(泳宏): What’s the real meaning of this paragraph?
    • Translation(秉桓): It could have been written by one of King Herod’s soldiers, when they were imprisoned in this town in 37 B.C.
    slide21

    (柏翰)The ruins of Petra were discovered in 1812, but a recent report has concluded that they “are in grave danger of being destroyed by the unstoppable march of tourism.” More than 4,000 tourists a day tramp through Petra’s rocky tombs, wearing away the soft red sandstone, and gradually turning it into a powder. Some thoughtless visitors have so little reverence for this sacred place that they think nothing ofscratching their names on the rock there.

    slide22

    Easy question(元甦): When was the ruins of Petra first found?

    • Difficult question(啟立): Why did these visitors scratch their names on the rock there?
    • Translation(明哲):The ruins of Petra were discovered in 1812, but a recent report has concluded that they “are in grave danger of being destroyed by the unstoppable march of tourism.”
    slide23

    (紹詳)However, it is not just Petra that is under threat of destruction. More than 600 million tourists a year now travel the globe, and, understandably, vast numbers of them want to visit the world’s most treasured sites, such as India’s TajMahal, England’s Stonehenge, and the national parks of Kenya. Many destinations that were once too remote to visit are now just a flight or bus trip away, and many have become part of inexpensive package tours. Because of the tourist industry, these sites are now beingvisited by millions of people annually.

    slide24

    Easy question(哲葳): Where is Stonehenge?

    • Difficult question(育昀): Except for the mental relaxation, what else might be the reason why people travel around?
    • Translation(崇祈):Because of the tourist industry, these sites are now being visited by millions of people annually.
    slide25

    (子齊)Tourists are flocking to the neighborhood of the Mediterranean Sea, too. The population of 130 million there can swell to 230 million each summer. The once splendid and untouched landscape there now consists of mile after mile of hotels. Yet, this current rate of visitors to the Mediterranean is nothing compared to a disturbing projection made by the United Nations—the Mediterranean region could host 760 million holidaymakers by the year of 2025. In Spain, France, Italy, and most of Greece, there is very little undeveloped coastline left, and the Mediterranean Sea has become the most contaminated sea in the whole world.

    slide26

    Easy question(11):How many tourists visit the Mediterranean Sea every year?

    • Difficult question(28):Why it called the projection made by the UN “disturbing”?
    • Translation(元均):The once splendid and untouched landscape there now consists of mile after mile of hotels.
    slide27

    (1)To make matters worse, sightseers are causing serious damage to historic sites just by visiting them. Their sightseeing is actually destroying the very things that they want to see. For instance, 7,000 visitors an hour trample in and out of Notre Dame Cathedral each day. On a typical day, thirty-­five buses, having let their passengers out, wait outside, with the fumes from their engines continuously eating away the delicate stonework of the monument.

    slide28

    Easy question(41):How many visitors trample in and out of Notre Dame Cathedral each day an hour?

    • Difficult question(25):Why did the writer use so many statistics?
    • Translation(39): On a typical day, thirty-­five buses, having let their passengers out, wait outside, with the fumes from their engines continuously eating away the delicate stonework of the monument.
