1. Read the following passage and answer the questions below: 5×4=20

All our languages are the result of art. Whether there is a natural language common to all mankind, has long been a matter of investigation. Without doubt there is such a language and it is the one that children utter before they know how to talk. This language is not articulate, but it is accentuated, sonorous, and intelligible. The using of our own language has led us to neglect this, even so far as to forget it altogether. Let us study children, and we shall soon acquire it again from them. Nurses are our teachers in this language. They understand all their nursing’s say, they answer them, they hold really connected dialogues with them and although they pronounce words, these words are entirely useless, the child understands, not the meaning of the words but the accent which accompanies them. To the language of the voice is added the no less forcible language of gestures. This gesture is not that of children’s feeble hands, it is that seen in their faces. It is astonishing to see how much expression these immature countenances already have from moment to moment, their features change with inconceivable quickness. On them you see the smile, the wish, the fear spring into life and pass away, like so many lightning flashes. Each time you seem to see a different countenance.

a) When do children utter language?

b) Who are our teachers in natural language?

c) Where do we find the language of gesture?

d) Give a suitable title of the passage

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.

Do not dwell on the past; do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Life is not about finding yourself; life is about creating yourself.

Everybody should always remember that success is not final, failure is not fatal; It is the courage to continue that counts.
