III. Read the passage and choose the correct answer for each question (10 points):
It is not easy for adult students of English to improve their accents. Unlike children, who are flexible, adults often find it hard to change the way they speak. This is why even the top or smartest adult students have difficulty with pronunciation. There are several things that an international student can do to improve his or her pronunciation.
 One method is to sign up for a pronunciation class. Studying pronunciation can help students to understand the rules of English, but in order to practice speaking students often need to be exposed to English outside the classroom as well. This is why many students say that studying in an English-speaking country greatly affects their English. Living with native speakers can help students to pick up new vocabulary as well as improve their accents. International students can also learn important cultural information. This can help to prevent misunderstandings that may occur when people from different cultures live together.
	However, living with someone from another culture can be difficult. International students are usually excited when they first show up at their new homes, but after a few months they may start to think about their home countries and get homesick. Students who are homesick get depressed quickly. They might cry a lot or want to be alone. This makes it difficult for them to make friends and learn English.
66. According to the passage, it seems that.....................
A. all that the students need to improve their pronunciation is to practice more outside the classroom 
B. attending a pronunciation class can be very helpful to adult learners who have problems with their pronunciation.
C. most younger students cannot change their pronunciation.
D. adult students of English cannot improve their accents because they are slow to change
67. What does the phrase “to be exposed to English” in the second paragraph mean?
A. Imitating native speakers.
B. Avoiding speaking English outside the classroom.
C. Living in an English–speaking environment.
D. Listening to native speakers
68. Which of the flowing is TRUE?
A. The passage implies that adult learners should not study English in an English-speaking country to avoid these problems.
B. Many students feel depressed because they cannot improve their pronunciation.
C. On their arrival, most international students may forget about the problems because they are very excited.
D. To avoid misunderstandings about cultures, students should live with native speakers.

A. living with someone from another culture can be difficult.
