3. Read the following passage and choose the correct answer A, B, c or D.

Some people believe that soon schools will no longer be necessary. These people say that because of the Internet and other new technology, there is no longer any need for school buildings, formal classes, or teachers. Perhaps this will be true one day, but it is hard for me to imagine a world without schools. In fact, we need to look at how we can use new technology to make schools better not to eliminate them. We should invent a new kind of school that is linked to libraries, museums, science centers, laboratories, and even corporations.

Corporations ought to create learning programs for schools in their area of expertise. Independent experts could give talks on video or over

the Internet. TV networks and local stations could develop programming about things students are actually studying in schools. Laboratories could set up web sites to demonstrate new technology so students could view it on the Internet.

Is this just a dream? No. Already there are several towns where this is beginning to happen. Blacksburg, Virginia, is one of them. Here the entire city is linked to the Internet, and learning can take place at home, at school, and in the office. Businesses provide programs for the schools and the community. The schools provide computer labs for people at home. Because everyone has Internet access, older people participate as much as younger ones, and everyone can visit distant libraries and museums as easily as nearby ones.

How will this new kind of school change learning? It is too early to be sure, but it is very exciting to think about. Technology will change the way we learn; schools will change as well as we will all learn something ¡in the process.

61. It can be inferred from the passage that

A. schools are not necessary.

B. schools are still necessary.

C. new technology will replace schools.

D. schools will be eliminated.

62. According to the author, the statements below are possible about schools EXCEPT

A. corporations should get involved.

B. everyone can visit distant libraries as easily as nearby ones.

63. The future schools should be

A. linked to all the capital cities the world over.

B. linked to libraries, museums, science centers, laboratories and even corporations.

C. for all young international people.

D. for old people only.

64. Which of the following statements is true about Blacksburg?

A. It’s a place where getting access to the Internet is not easy.

B. It’s a school with new technology.

C. It’s a city where there are no teachers.

D. It’s a city where learning can take place at home.

65. How does the author feel about the change of schools in the future?

A.pessimistic B.positive C.depressed D.indifferent
