I like watching butterflies. Sometimes I think I’m the only girl who notices these quiet but beautiful things. But if it hadn’t been for a crowded restaurant, I wouldn’t have ever noticed Valeri. Valeri was a new student. She walked to class with her books against her chest and her head down. She talked only when the teacher asked her a question. After a month at our school, she hadn’t made any friend. One day at lunch, most tables being full, I had nowhere to sit. Valeri sat alone, book in hand. I walked over to her, “Is that a good book?” Valeri gave a small nod and went back to reading. “What’s it about?” I asked. After seconds of silence, she looked at me, her eyes shining, “Well, it’s about a dragon! This boy, Eragon, finds this dragon egg when he goes playing one day. He thinks it’s a rock! The egg hatches（孵化）and Eragon hides the dragon from his cousin and uncle until it gets too big .” Two weeks later, I was sitting in the auditorium（礼堂）enjoying the talent show. Then a shy girl walked on stage. I recognized her immediately. Valeri held a violin in one hand and a bow in the other. She started to play. The notes formed a soft, sweet song. The auditorium fell completely silent until we realized the music was finished. I smiled to myself. Valeri wasn’t just “a quiet girl”. She knew about wonderful books and could play the violin like nothing I’d ever heard. Like a butterfly, she was beautiful and amazing when you looked closely. 21. The author went to sit beside Valeri because ______. A. Valeri invited her to sit there B. Valeri’s book drew her attention C. no more empty seats were left D. she wanted to make friends with Valeri 22. In the book Valeri was reading, _______raised the dragon. A. Eragon’s father B. Eragon C. Eragon’s cousin D. Eragon’s uncle 23. Butterflies are mentioned in the text to show _______. A. the beauty of butterflies B. the author ’s interest C. the character of Valeri D. the qualities of friends 24. Which of the following words can best describe Valeri? A. Quiet and talented. B. Friendly and active. C. Careful and easygoing. D. Kind and helpful. B Staying healthy is important, but many people neglect (忽视) their health because they don’t think they have the time to look after it. It’s not just a time matter; people think it’s boring to spend time on their health. In fact, you can do some simple things to get healthier and have fun. There’re some fun things that hardly seem like they are for keeping you healthy at all, but they do help. The first thing you can do is singing. Singing improves your oxygen(氧气) flow, which in turn is good for your skin and immune system(免疫系统). It’s also good for your brain. Another feel-good and health-improving activity is laughing. You can watch a funny movie. Laughing is a healthy way to reduce stress and pain, improve brain function, lower blood pressure and protect the heart. Laughing and singing might go together, but for something completely normal that you do every day, you should eat to stay healthy. It’s unhealthy not to eat breakfast or try to work on an empty stomach. You can eat some fruit or other healthy snacks instead of missing a meal.
Exercise is important to staying healthy, but it often feels more like work than fun. One thing you can do to have more fun is attend a dance class. Dancing in a safe environment is good exercise as well as fun. Taking classes in kung fu can be a lot of fun too. It can be a great way to lose weight, but you should probably consult your doctor before starting if you are in bad health or very overweight. 25. According to the passage, many neglect their health because they ______. A. are already healthy enough B. are too tired to stay healthy C. believe there’s no time for it D. think it costs too much 26. How many ways of staying healthy are mentioned in the text? A. Three. B. Four. C. Five. D. Six. 27. The underlined word “consult” in Paragraph 4 probably means “______”. A. ask B. book C. consider D. manage 28. The best title for the passage is probably _____. A. What to eat to stay healthy B. Fun ways to stay healthy C. How to make life more fun D. Different fun exercises C You may have noticed something different when you ate at your favorite restaurant. Or perhaps you picked up on it while looking through your social media apps (社交媒体软件) . You guessed it ---we’re becoming a foodie (吃货) culture. For some, that means photographing every dish, but others are taking it one step further. Sophia Hampton, a senior at Staples High School in US, chooses to make her own food. She has been published in Future Chefs, a cookbook of recipes (食谱) by teens. Hampton’s best advice for those who want to be foodies is to get in the kitchen. “Start cooking,” she said. “There are so many resources online, like recipes and articles about food. Go to your local farmers’ market and start cooking with them. Besides blogs and online resources, there are also hands-on cooking classes for students. The Chopping Block, a Chicago cooking school, offers many different classes for teens, including courses on chocolate and French food. By attending cooking classes, surfing online and going to restaurants, you can find endless recipes. But sometimes becoming a real foodie means being behind a camera. As our food-loving culture becomes more popular and teen-friendly, social media apps like Facebook, have become major players in food culture. “Getting involved in foodie culture is as easy as having a camera and a social media app,” one foodie said. “I always go to streets and farmers’ markets to take beautiful pictures of food. Wherever food prices are expensive, the photos are free.” 29. What does Hampton advise those who want to be foodies to do? A. Post their recipes online. B. Cook food by themselves. C. Eat at their favorite restaurant. D. Take photos of every dish they eat. 30. Where can students find new recipes, according to the article? ① cooking classes ② online resources ③ new restaurant ④ public libraries A.①②③ B.①③④ C.②③④ D.①②④
31. What has made foodie culture more popular, according to the article? A. People’s growing interest in traditional culture. B. The convenience of getting different food. C. The use of cameras and social media. D. The drop in food prices. D After I made it to the city center, I started to feel it might be easy for a foreigner to deal with the great size of Beijing. With growing confidence, I decided to take the subway to the hotel, not realizing that the network didn’t go that far. Impressed with the cleanliness of the station, I bought a ticket and boarded the first train that came along. After a few minutes I asked in English of course a young man seated next to me where I should get off closest to the Friendship Hotel. Wearing a smart business suit and tie, he would surely speak English, wouldn’t he? Unfortunately, he couldn’t understand me but seemed very friendly. I showed him the room card with all the information of the Friendship Hotel in Chinese characters. He looked at it, and then his eyes moved quickly to the carriage (车厢) subway map. Next, he raised three fingers of his right hand. In Australia, raising fingers at someone is not usually nice, but this man wasn’t smiling. At the next station he showed me two fingers. Now in Australia, that’s really rude, but I got the message. When we stopped at the third station, he didn’t just point to the door, but got up, took me out of the train, and led me to the top of the stairs, and out onto the street. Then he stopped a taxi and told the driver where to take me. All this came from a man who couldn’t speak my language, and I couldn’t speak his. I was now speechless, especially when he refused my offer of money. I felt a little embarrassed having even thought he would accept a tip. This experience made it clear I had to learn some Chinese quickly or my adventures might start turning into bad luck. 32. The author decided to take the subway because ________. A. he lived near the city center B. the network covered most of the stops C. he believed in his ability to deal with the trip D. he had a good impression of its cleanliness 33. Having been shown the room card, the young man_________. A. understood the author well B. still remained puzzled C. answered the author directly D. pointed at the subway map 34. Which of the following CANNOT be used to describe the young man? A. Helpful. B. Rude. C. Warmhearted. D. Caring. 35. The author’s purpose of writing this passage is mainly to ________. A. prove the importance of being careful B. appreciate the kindness of the young man C. complain some cultural misunderstanding D. describe one of his adventurous experiences
