3 1-Text A Text A Text Comprehension Check
Text A TA-Text-1 Read the web page. Then do the comprehension check. Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is one of the most spectacular wonders of the natural world. The waterfall is almost 2 kilometers wide — one of the widest in the world. Now world famous, the waterfall is Africa’s number one tourist attraction. The area has been declared a national park and is protected form development. There are a number of ways to view the breathtaking scenery of the area. Enjoy the calm water of the Zambezi River several kilometers north of Victoria Falls. Take a cruise on the river and watch local wildlife in its natural environment. In contrast to the calm river north of the waterfall, the water south of it is fast, wild, and dangerous. For those who are very brave, this is one of the best places in the world for white-water rafting. But be careful, because it's too dangerous for people without experience to try.
Text A TA-Text-2 There is a path through the rainforest near the falls for tourists. This lush jungle is home to a large variety of plants. Occasionally the path curves out of the rainforest to offer extraordinary views of the falls. If you're not afraid to fly, then a helicopter ride provides a fantastic view of everything: the calm river, the falls, and the wild water at the bottom of the falls. Give yourself several days to experience the area. You won't want to miss a thing!

Text B TB-Text-1 ECOTOURISM Farming, wining, logging, and, hunting, are traditional approaches to economic development The Promise and Perils Worldwide, tourism generates annual revenues of nearly 3 trillion US dollars — nearly 11% of all global revenues — making it the world’s largest industry. In recent years, ecotourism — or environmentally friendly tourism — has grown in popularity, uniting the interests of both environmentalists and developers. However, finding a compromise between the environment and development is often challenging, and ecotourism can actually cause additional problems for the very regions it is supposed to protect.
Practically speaking, ecotourism includes activities in which visitors enjoy hands-on experiences, such as bird-watching in the Brazilian rainforest, hiking in the mountains of Nepal, participating in a traditional village celebration, or taking a canoe trip down a river. Local guides usually accompany small groups of tourists, teaching them all about local plants and animals and the culture of the region. Tourists typically stay with local families, or at small, environmentally friendly hotels. The cross-cultural exchange that is part of the experience adds greatly to its value for many people. Ecotourism also encourages the development of native handicrafts and artwork for souvenirs, and thus contributes to the preservation of cultural heritage. Ecotourism presents an alternative to traditional approaches to economic development, such as farming, logging, mining, or hunting. It offers local people the chance to escape a cycle of poverty and, by sharing theirknowledge of the local terrain and ecology with visitors, to develop a stronger sense of community pride. Text B TB-Text-2
However, ecotourism is not always beneficial to local people and the ecology. Any increase in population, however temporary, produces larger amounts of waste and pollution and can require more development. Tourist overcrowding is causing severe environmental damage to the Galapagos Islands, for example. Tourists who go to view wildlife can scare animals away from their feeding and nesting sites. Tourism may even encourage the development of markets in wildlife souvenirs (skins, bones, etc.) which further damages the environment. Text B TB-Text-3

Reference Sample The West Lake Located in the center of Hangzhou China, the West Lake is one of the most famous sceneries. I went to visit there once. A local friend told me that the lake is more beautiful in the evening and night time than in the day, with sparkling lights around the bank and dragon ships decorated with lights cruising on the water. When I visited the West Lake it was raining. I found it amazing because it seemed that everything was wrapped like a mysterious blanket in a foggy silk. The West Lake in the rain looks like a fairy bathing in the Moon light. When I described that to my friend she told me that the West Lake looks absolutely stunning when it is snowing! I really hope I can see that one day, but sadly, it seldom snows in Southern China.
