David had a fun summer.

In June, his grandpa from Taiwan came to visit for the first time. They all went to Disneyland and had a great time there. David thought that his grandpa would be too scared to ride the roller coaster inside Space Mountain. However, to his surprise, grandpa really enjoyed it and wanted to ride again. David could not believe it!

In July, David took a six-week computer class at the Wonderful Learning Center. He learned how to program simple games on the computer. Grandpa played the games David wrote and said he liked them a lot. This made David very happy and proud.

At the end of August, before his grandpa flew back to Taiwan, David's family had a big picnic at the beach. David ate four hot dogs. He thought no one could eat more than he did. But grandpa ate six!

Dear Mom,

I’m sorry that I can’t go back home for Mother’s Day next week. On that day, I’ll have to go to an important meeting for my boss, who helps me a lot with my work and life here. But I’ll find time to see you at home soon.

Happy Mother’s Day. I love you, Mom.

Best wishes,

John

Thanks to globalization, we get to see movies from around the world. If anyone should feel most excited about globalization, it is US movie makers. A study in 2001 shows that, for every 100 people who go to the theater, 85 see US movies. This may be good news for US movie makers, but not for those in other countries.

Chart 1 shows the percentages (%) of US movies in five countries in 1984 and in 2001; Chart 2 shows the percentages (%) of domestic movies in the five countries in 1984 and in 2001. In Chart 1, we can see that US movies have been popular in foreign markets. In Chart 2, we can see that domestic movies in the five countries are not doing well in their domestic market. The falling market for domestic movies may be a serious problem, but there is something more important. When people welcome US movies with open arms, they in fact also say yes to the American way of thinking. Some people in these countries worry that what is lost may not just be their domestic market for domestic movies, but also their own way of thinking that has been passed down from parents to children.

globalization 全球化
domestic 當地的;國產的;本國的

The American way of thinking may be changed when it is brought to other countries.
45.
From the charts, which is true?
In each of the five countries, the percentage (%) of domestic movies has fallen.
Of all five countries, UK’s domestic movies have the smallest drop in percentage (%).
The percentage (%) of US movies has changed the least in Spain.
When the percentage (%) of domestic movies drops, the percentage of US movies rises.
