In Eritrea, a small country in northeast Africa, approximately 80 percent of the population is illiterate.That percentage is even higher in woman.As in many developing countries, many Eritreans have traditional ideas about the role of women.They believe that women should stay home and take care of the family and should not get an education or look for a job. These beliefs are one of the factors that prevent Eritrea and other developing countries from improving their economic situation.Experience in many developing countries has shown that educated women have fewer children and have more opportunities for improving their lives and the lives of their families.In Eritrea, in fact, there is great need for improvement.It is one of the poorest countries in the world.For many Eritrean families? getting enough food is a daily problem. To deal with these problems, the Eritrean government together with the World Food Program, has a new program that offers food as a reward for learning.In primary schools, all the children receive food packages to take home to their families.However, with the new program, the girls receive more food than the boys.This way, parents are encouraged to send their daughter to school rather than keeping them at home. Another government program that aims to educate women is Food for Training.Managed by the National Union of Eritrean Women, this program offer food rewards (also from World Food Organization) to women and elder girls who are willing to join the program、Because of the war with Ethiopia, many women are bringing up their families on their own.They often live in refugee camps,with no land of their own and no way to earn money.Most of these women are illiterate and have no skills to find a job.They spend most of their day looking for food and preparing it for their families. The Food for Training program helps the teenagers and women change their lives.If they agree to join the program, they receive a large package of food each month.In return, the women are required to attend free literate classes for two hours every day.When Food for Training classes in two regions of Eritrea? 5000 girls and women joined in the first two months、It is especially popular with teenage girls,aged fourteen to sixteen, who have never had a chance to go to school before. The organizers of Food for Training also plans to offer other kinds of courses for women, using the same system of food rewards.In these courses,they will teach women job skills and crafts such as basket weaving.These women will not only learn to read and write.They will become aware of what is going on in their country.

Since the early 1930s,Swiss banks had prided themselves on their system of banking secrecy and numbered accounts.Over the years,they had successfully withstood every challenge to this system by their own government who,in turn,had been frequently urged by foreign governments to reveal information about the financial affairs of certain account holders.The result of this policy of secrecy was that a kind of mystique had grown up around Swiss banking.There was a widely-held belief that Switzerland was irresistible to wealthy foreigners, mainly because of its numbered accounts and bankers, reluctance to ask awkward questions of depositors.Contributing to the mystique was the view,carefully propagated by the banks themselves, that if this secret was ever given up, foreigners would fall over themselves in the rush to withdraw money, and the Swiss banking system would virtually collapse overnight. To many, therefore, it came like a bolt out of the blue, when, in 1977,the Swiss banks announced they had signed a pact with the Swiss National Bank (the Central Bank).The aim of the agreement was to prevent the improper use of the country’s bank secrecy laws,and its effect to curb (遏制)severely the system of secrecy. The rules which the banks had agreed to observe made the opening of numbered accounts subject to much closer scrutiny than before.The banks would be required,if necessary,to identify the origin of foreign fund going into numbered and other accounts.The idea was to stop such accounts being used for dubious (可疑的)purposes.Also,they agreed not to accept funds resulting from tax evasion or from crime. The pact represented essentially a tightening up of banking rules.Although the banks agreed to end relations with clients whose identities were unclear or who were performing improper acts, they were still not obliged to inform. on a client to anyone, including the Swiss government.To some extent,therefore,the principle of secrecy had been maintained.

According to South Koreans new visa regulations, native speakers of English who intend to teach English in South Korea will be required to undergo criminal record checks,medical and drug tests, provide sealed academic transcripts and have their university diplomas inspected? The Korea Times has reported.The tightened regulations will affect an estimated 17000 foreigners that hold E-2 visas specifically for foreign language teachers. The most controversial requirement is that English teachers residing outside South Korea will have to have an interview at a South Korean embassy before taking up their teaching posts.For applicants living in remote areas in Canada? Australia or the US,this is an additional travel burden、Meanwhile, foreign teachers currently living in South Korea must leave the country after their one-year contracts end and renew their visas at a South Korean embassy in their home country or third country.Before the changes, they could renew their visas by visiting a neighboring country and return without additional documentation. The visa changes are a reaction to public concern about the suitability of some foreign teachers.A report from the South Korean Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development shows between 2001 and August of this year, 1481 foreign language teachers have been caught for a range of offenses including forged degrees, visa violations and general lawbreaking. But the changes are likely to slow up the supply of teachers to South Koreans English language education sector.According to Michael Duffy, manager of a teacher placement service in South Korea, applicants have to spend a few hundred dollars and several months on getting affidavits for documents.“South Korea has put up too many hoops to jump through.” he said,adding that foreigners would seek work elsewhere.Most foreigners wonder if the experience of working in South Korea will be worth the burden of the paper work and increasing restrictions.“I don’t think (South) Korea has thought this through.” said Scott Mclnnis,a Canadian teacher based in Incheon near Seoul、“This is a reactionary move by the government that will have strong implications for the EFL community.” As part of efforts to ease the discontent, the South Korean Ministry of Justice has granted a three-month grace period for current E-2 visa holders to prepare the necessary documents. Which of the following is NOT required of an E-2 visa applicant?A.To pass a Korean language test
