Passage 2: |
Our American food styles have undergone many changes over the last decade. More and more Americans have shown particular interest in the natural food that requires the least possible amount of processing; most of them prefer to get their essential proteins from beans, cheese and eggs.//
We Americans are rediscovering the family and social significance of the dinner table. We regard dining with family, relatives and friends as a special way of enjoying and sharing. While we still rush through lunch at a fast food restaurant, we prefer to take time to relax and enjoy the finer tastes of home style dinner with our family after work.

Part A （英譯中）
China’s sports have undergone several thousand years of development. But they had not been regarded as an undertaking of the state until 1949, when the People’s Republic of China was founded. Now, a nationwide network for physical culture and sports has been set up and expenditure on this field has been included in the state budget. //
The purpose of developing physical culture and sports in China is to spread sports among the people, enhance their physique, improve the sporting level of the country as a whole and chalk up new record, thus helping to promote the country’s economic as well as moral and cultural development.

And finally, we reserve the right to make changes to the set itinerary should we encounter any unforeseeable circumstances that would prevent us from otherwise normal operations, including a full refund.
