Depending on how you view the world, you can think of all the crimes and injustice and conclude that we?re bad, so we need a system of laws to keep us in check. However, there are also a lot of stories of good deeds. I think we?re all born good. Today, I took a trip to South Bend to attend my friends? wedding reception. I had “That?s not so .” I set out on my journey and it was completely clear until I 36

It wasn?t a very 45 street, so I didn?t see many people. Just as I was starting to give up, a few people stopped by my car and then helped push me out of the snow bank. It was one person at first, and then a few others. Then, on the way to my destination, another lady got stuck. 46 , I got out and was 48 47
to offer the same help that I had received. At least five others joined me in my
to get her car
unstuck. It is kind of storm that makes roads undrivable. South Bend feet of snow. In these 50 of kindness though, I was once again 51
up getting over 3
of my belief that that all 52 of
people are born good. These people didn?t have to stop and help me out. They ran the having their own cars stuck. Even for myself, it was a(an) lady?s car out too. I didn?t think about it 54 a second. 53

第三部分：阅读理解（共两节，40 分） 第一节： （共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，共 30 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上 将该项涂黑。 A It's still there, the Vietnamese school where my brother and I used to go. Even with a new coat of paint and the high wire fence, the school I knew ten years ago remains the same. Every day at 5 p.m., instead of flying kites with our friends, my brother and I had to go to Vietnamese school. No amount of kicking, screaming, or arguing could stop my mother, who was determined to have us learn the language of our culture. She held us by the collar and walked with us the seven long, hilly blocks from our home to school, leaving our tearful faces before the front of the school. We all sat in little chairs in a big empty room, which had a slight smell of old clothes that had been stored for a long time. I hated that smell. There was a stage far to the right, with an American flag on one side and the flag of the Republic of Vietnam on the other side. Although the school mainly taught language - speaking, reading, dictation - the lessons always began with an exercise in politeness. With the entrance of the teacher, the best student would tap a bell and everyone would get up, and say in Vietnamese, "How are you, teacher?" The language always made me embarrassed. More often than not, I had tried to separate myself from the loud voice that followed me whenever I went to the American supermarket outside our area. The voice belonged to my grandmother, a small old woman who could shout louder than anyone on the street. Her Vietnamese was quick, it was loud, it was not beautiful. In our area, the comings and goings of hundreds of Vietnamese on their daily tasks sounded crazy. I did not want to be thought of as being mad, as talking stupid. When I spoke English, people nodded at me, smiled and encouraged me. Even Vietnamese people would laugh and say that I'd do well in life. My brother was even stricter than I about speaking English. He was especially cruel towards my mother, scolding her for her poor English. Bits of Vietnamese were often mixed in her conversation. After two years of struggle, I finally divorced my culture. I was permitted to stop Vietnamese school. I thought of myself as American. At last, I thought I was one of you; I wasn't one of them. Sadly, I am only an American. 56. What can be learned from the passage? A. The author?s brother liked learning Vietnamese.
B. The author?s mother taught him English at home. C. The author didn?t like learning Vietnamese when he was young. D. The author?s mother put her sons in a language school in Vietnam. 57. The author often felt embarrassed because ________. A. his Vietnamese was not beautiful enough B. he could not fly kites like other kids at school C. his grandma spoke Vietnamese loudly in public D. his mother always treated him rudely in the market 58. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that the author feels ________. A. scared B. peaceful C. satisfied D. regretful 59. What?s the theme of the passage? A. It is important to adapt to a new environment. B. It is important to appreciate your own culture. C. It is important to remember your childhood. D. It is important to learn a foreign language. B Dear Bobby Brune, Children learn best when they?re having fun. “Jungle Gym Jimmy” is an article for parents and children that teaches playground safety and shows how simply playing can promote good health and fitness. The tips are given through the funny voice of the “tour guide” on the playground, seven-year-old Jimmy. By listening to Jimmy, children learn how to use the equipment safely and how to get the most fun out of a day on the playground. As a Kid Talk subscriber for the last seven years, I am very familiar with your publication, and feel this article would be a positive addition to the “I Can Do It” section of the magazine. The article is 2,114 words, and has been divided into categories in a way that holds children?s interest. Being a mother of four children and using our home as a meeting place for most of the neighborhood, I?ve had the opportunity to test and confirm that the fun and easy “exercises” offered here are not only effective but are los of fun for kids. I?ve been writing children?s stories and articles for several years, and have had many of my stories published in Kids Know Best, a small newspaper that the Cinder Primary School publishes each month. I?m also a founding member of the “Right On Baby” editorial group which publishes a monthly e-zine for parents with newborns, and I?m a contributing editor to “Write Now,” an online site that teaches creative writing. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Claudia Parker
60. The author has written this letter to a ______________. A. magazine B. website C. newspaper D. primary school 61. By writing the third paragraph, the writer wants to show that she______. A. is experienced in writing articles for children B. writes lots of articles about her own children C. often reads different stories for her children D. is good at designing activities for children. 62. The purpose of the letter is to _______________. A. open a new section in a publication for parents B. start a game to promote good health and fitness C. organize a class teaching children how to play safely D. recommend an article on how to have fun on the playground C Movie Extras Would you mind lying in a coffin(棺材)? Would you shave your head? Are you willing to take out your false teeth? These are just a few of the questions Anne Marie Stewart and her staff sometimes ask the "talent" who serve as non-speaking "extras" in special films, television series, and made-for-TV movies produced in Toronto. Of course, the majority of extra calls are for more ordinary people, and Stewart has a list of about 650 registered extras. Crowd scenes, which are common, call for everyday people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, and sizes. Over at Movie People, last-minute requests are not unusual. "We got a request once for an entire brass band of 30 people. They wanted it within the hour," said manager Yvonne McCartney. Another time, the company got a last-minute request for a newborn baby. "We found a baby that was three weeks premature," said Jonathan Aiken, an owner of the company. Then there was the worried call from a casting director whose "Star" got doggone stubborn one day and decided to just lie down and not work. The director needed a replacement dog, fast. "We got them two in one hour." said Aiken. "It was a matter of good connections and fast phone work." The eight phone lines needed to make 350 to 400 calls a day are one of Movie People's major expenses. Phone lines are the only way to stay in touch with casting directors and extras; but the latter are a group not necessarily interested in a long-term relationship. Most extra jobs pay only $7 an hour (with a six-hour minimum), while most agencies charge an annual $75 registration fee and get 10 to 15 per cent of extras? earnings. It's no wonder that the turnover rate is fairly high. Some people who are between jobs do extra work as a temporary measure, said McCartney. But professionals, such as lawyers, also do the work because it's interesting. Others with flexible jobs have a desire to do something different. Some homemakers want to get out of the house and
onto a movie set. Money's not the motivating reason. "One of the first things I say to people who walk in and ask about being an extra is, ?You have to be available,' "said a person at Karen Clifton Agency. Inc. "The next thing I say is, 'You can't make a living at this.' ” 63. What kind of people are movie extras? A. TV series makers. B. Casting directors. C. Non-professional movie actors. D. Agents for movie stars. 64. According to the passage, movie extras should ________. A. have special talents B. have a flexible schedule C. make good connections D. make hundreds of phone calls daily 65. Why do white collar workers most probably like to be movie extras? A. They want to make more money. B. They want to start a career in acting. C. They think their regular job is boring. D. They think being on the stage is enjoyable. 66. The underlined word “turnover” in the sixth paragraph probably means ____________. A. business profit B. the loss of staff C. market demand D. operation expenses
D In the face of tragedy(悲剧), you must of course let yourself feel: Cry without holding back, shake with fear, yell out in anger, accept and follow your feelings. This is part of the wise approach to tragedy: The Upward Path – the feeling of emotions(情感), the acceptance of them, and the coupling of the emotional mind with wisdom. Along this path, you?ll take the experience – no matter how sad or upsetting – as a learning event, just as all other points on your journey will prove to be. While tragic, you must recognize this is still a chance for all involved to grow. You should let both sadness and joy, fear and courage, dark and light fill your world, and learn to find your steady, calm center in the midst of the opposing forces. This is the Upward Path. Use the event as a chance to gain balance and discover wisdom – the wisdom of love and of letting go, of non-attachment and non-resistance, and using this experience to eventually help others in need of guidance. Being able to relate to others who have also experienced tragedy and inspire in them hope – of recovery, and of moving forward – is perhaps the greatest gift you can receive from tragedy. Turn the negative into positive, the pain into connection. After you?ve taken appropriate time to be sad, to feel your own pain, you should make it your work, your goal, your purpose to connect with others who need help. Show them how you?ve experienced feelings, achieved balance, and gained wisdom
that you would never have otherwise had the chance to learn. Feel, but do not Feed on tragedy. Rather, let it inspire you to go beyond the person who you were before. With demise comes renewal, so let this loss be also your rebirth. No matter how hopeless it seems, no matter how difficult this becomes, you have the power to transform yourself into someone greater than you ever knew you could be. 67. When following the Upward Path, the person facing tragedy should _______. A. free his emotions B. hold back all his feelings C. fill his world with positive ideas D. give in to tragedy and all opposing forces 68. According to the author, the greatest gift one gets from tragedy is being able to _______. A. seek solutions from others B. understand and help others C. stay calm and resist change D. forgive others and move on 69. The underlined word “demise” in the last paragraph probably means _____. A. sorrow B. problem C. difficulty D. death 70. The purpose of the passage is to ___________. A. analyze the causes of tragedy B. tell people how to prevent tragedy C. suggest a way of dealing with tragedy D. encourage people to build friendship after tragedy 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，共 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的七个选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为 多余选项。 Planking: a brief history
The rules are simple: you must lie face down, palms(手掌) flat against your sides, with your feet together and pointing at the ground. Points are awarded for an original location and for the number of onlookers and participants involved. ______71______ Without a photo, you're just a person lying down. This is planking, described variously as a global participatory art project, a "meaningless internet craze". It began 14 years ago with a pair of bored kids. Gary Clarkson, then 15, and his friend Christian Langdon, 12, would perform the plank in public places, amusing one another and puzzling onlookers. _____72______ The game was a pointless way for the boys to pass the time. As Clarkson puts it: "It was just a really stupid, random thing to do." For its first 10 years planking spread very slowly, from Clarkson and Langdon to their friends at school and, after a while, on to other kids from the neighborhood. ______73______ Soon, they had a few thousand followers. Photographs of plankers came in from all over the world: American plankers on top of their televisions, British plankers in trees, and Europeans on country roads and steep riverbanks. Then things got really interesting. A few days later, a mass gathering of plankers attracted more than 100 people. The planking in the photos posted to Facebook became riskier and stranger. One brave airport worker performed the plank in the engine fan of a jet plane. ______74______ Some people have linked the practice to the 1995 video for the Radiohead song, “Just”. In the video, a man lies down on a busy London road and a crowd of strangers gather to try to understand and help him. He refuses to move, or to tell them why he's lying there. He tells them – but not us, the viewers – and all we see is that now the entire crowd is lying down on the pavement as well. _____75______ "People generally think you're mad," as creator Gary Clarkson puts it. "That's sort of the point." A. You must, of course, have somebody take a photo. B. Many people believe planking is a good way to pass the time. C. At that time, it was known simply as the Lying Down Game. D. We can read about planking all of the time on internet websites. E. Whether the video is the inspiration or not, it helps us understand the spirit of planking. F. Then, in 2007, when the pair created a Facebook group for their game, the pace accelerated. G. It's not clear – and Clarkson and Langdon don't remember – where exactly the idea for planking came from. 第四部分：书面表达（共两节，35 分） 第一节 情景作文（20 分）

Early in the morning, I arrived at the airport. After claiming my luggage, I hurried to the exit where my parents were anxiously waiting for me. How nice it was to see them again! As soon as I arrived home, I started unpacking my suitcase. I was taking out my stuff when a book caught my eye. It was borrowed from the school library when I studied in Coldwater School. Indeed, I was careless. What could I do? Thinking for a while, I finally came up with a 61. A 62. D 63. C 64. B 65. D 40. D 45. C 50. D 55. B
solution. Immediately, I got online and searched for the school address. Having successfully found it, I wrote a letter to apologize, sincerely expressing my great regret. After lunch, I went to the nearby post office. With the letter enclosed, I mailed the book back to Coldwater School by EMS, hoping it would reach the school library as quickly as possible. When everything was done, I breathed a sigh of relief.

He is obviously admiring his achievement with great satisfaction. However, as we can see, the place where his arrow falls is not the real center of the target but the center of a circle later drawn by himself. The picture intends to warn us not to cheat ourselves by considering poorly-accomplished tasks as great successes. The man is obviously not a sharp shooter, for his arrow has missed the center. Blindly satisfied with his poor performance, he will probably not work harder. Similarly in life, if we are always content with whatever we have achieved, we will gradually lose the drive to dream big and reach high, eventually ending up a failure. Therefore, once we have set a goal, we should just go for it persistently. If we keep practicing, one day our arrow will hit the real center of the target. 听力部分录音稿 Text 1 W: What do you usually do on Sundays? M: I go to church in the morning, work in the garden in the afternoon and read the newspaper after supper. Text 2 W: Excuse me, could you please tell me how to get to the City Library? M: I?m sorry. I?m not a local here, but if you cross the street, you can see a police station next to the supermarket. I am sure they will help you.

I had a ticket for a flight on Friday, but the airport was closed because it was foggy. Text 4 W: How much do I owe you? M: 19 pounds. W: Here is 20. Keep the change. M: Thank you. Please remember to take all of your belongings. Text 5 M: Hi Jane. Have you tried the new restaurant in town yet? W: Yes, I went there last night with my mother. M: What did you think of it?
