Passage Three

If you hear the sound of a phone in a bag or pocket, you could be forgiven for thinking that someone has received a text message. (23) But nowadays there are so many different ways of messaging someone that it could spell the death of the traditional text as we know it. Text messaging, or texting, is the art of sending a short, electronic message between two mobile phones or tablets. But in the last few years, messaging in this manner has been on the decline.

The rise of smart phones and tablets has seen an increase in the use of instant messaging apps, which offer a cheap alternative to conventional texts. Using wireless Internet connections or mobile data networks, people can send limitless numbers of messages to their friends for very little cost. (24) Unlike traditional mobile texts, the user usually only has to pay to download the app once, after which each message they send is free. Web developers soon got the message. Instant messaging apps have become popular all over the world. WhatsApp in America and Europe, WeChat in China and KakaoTalk in South Korea are but a few which have attracted hundreds of millions of people, who use the apps to chat to their friends in real time. (25) These apps allow people to send picture messages for free—something which previously was quite costly. Many of these apps also allow users to access a huge range of colorful emoticons and stickers, which are fun ways to help people express their emotions.

23. What is the possible future of the traditional text message?
24. What may people pay for sending instant massages?
25. What is the advantage of using instant message apps mentioned in the passage?

短文三

如果听到包里手机的响声,你可能会觉得是收到了别人的短信。而现在越来越丰富的简讯方式宣告着传统的文字短信将消失殆尽。短消息,即短信是指手机间或平板电脑之间互动的电子简讯。但是近几年来,这种短信交流的方式正在慢慢减少。

随着智能手机和平板电脑的普及,费用远远低于传统短信的即时通信应用程序也蓬勃发展起来。通过连接无线网络或手机数据流量,人们可以用最低廉的成本随意收发朋友的信息。与传统的手机短信不同,用户只需首次付费下载该应用程序,之后就可以免费使用。开发人员会立即收到信息。即时通信应用程序在全球也越来越受欢迎。比如说美国的Whats,中国的微信,韩国的KakaoTalk等聊天软件拥有成千上万个用户,用户通过此平台与朋友在线实时聊天。这些聊天软件还能够免费发送图片信息,而之前的短信收发图片费用很高。这些聊天软件还设有丰富的表情和标签,用户可以借此充分地表达自己的情感。

23.传统短信的市场前景如何?
24.使用聊天软件之前,用户需要做什么?
25.文中提到使用聊天软件的独特优势是什么?
