Passage 3



Content Review

P1 The Starkly Modern Beinecke Library is the home to the most valuable books at Yale University. But the most controversial one is the vellum manuscript of the hardback. It was bought by Wilfried Voynich at Jesuit College in Italy in 1912.


P2 Over the years, it attracted much attention, from amateur to top codebreakers. Experts want to know what does this manuscript mean? There is doubt about when did this manuscript be written.

P3 Page after page of wired plants, astrological pictures or human figures, does it have many special meaning or even genuine meanings?

P5 According to Friedman’s research, the manuscript may use the artificial language.


P6 Friedman suggested we could use computer to transfer the code. And artificial language has been used either.

重点话题Sample Answer

Describe a café or restaurant you like to visit.

You should say:

Where the café/restaurant is

What kinds of food and drink this place serves

How often you visit this place

And why you like to visit this place.


Well the café that I'd like to talk about is one called the Elephant House in Edinburgh. This is the cafe where the idea of Harry Potter was born.


Unlike other coffee shops we normally go, the Elephant House Café is a great spot to hang out, with a slight countryside feel, and is popular with fans from across the world to leave a note on the walls.


The atmosphere here is extremely tranquil and serene, which greatly live up to my expectation. As a person with heavy amounts of daily workload, the café gives me a certain degree of peacefulness and calmness.


What leaves the most profound impression on me is that this coffee shop was bustling, but we were able to get a table pretty quickly. They had a full menu as well as a coffee-tea-hot chocolate plus dessert menu. As we were there between meals, we shared a piece of very creamy cheesecake and a salted caramel brownie. In the bathroom, the walls are covered with graffiti either praising Rowling or other fandom sayings.


Overall, the Elephant House café is a fantastic place to stop for a snake and definitely worth a visit.
