when learning North American idiomatic language. Ya Gotta Know It by Hania Hassan It provides an excellent mixture of materials for classroom lessons and American slang reference.

Spears It has a wide variety of resources on American English. It contains more than 2,000 phrases and idioms.

Price: $ 7.06 ISBN: 978007405607 American Idioms and Some Phrases Just for Fun by Edward Swick The book’s strength is its translation of more formal English of a number of idioms. These phrases are then repeated in a number of different contexts giving students a good idea of common usage.

year because they had been abandoned, many of them shortly after the festival season. The main reason given by owners for handing their dogs over to the Dogs Trust is that the dogs need more attention than they can give; behavioral problems and moving home are also reasons given. But Eleanor Silk, the Trust’s communications director, says, “It’s often four or five months after Christmas, in early summer, when owners find that the dog has got too big and too active, or it hasn’t been trained properly and has caused damage around the home.” In any case, some organizations that help pets are quick to point out that if you are serious about getting a puppy(小狗) as a pet, Christmas is not the time to do it. Puppies need to get used to their new surroundings, to be introduced to a routine, and to be looked after like small children. It’s hard to meet any of these needs at Christmas. What’s more, pulling a puppy out of a Christmas stocking in itself sends the wrong message to children. It encourages children to think of the puppy as a toy, rather than a responsibility. Appreciating what you’re taking on with a dog can be a serious realization. “For life” means thinking about the effect they’ll have on your life. It also infers you will need to care for the dog for its whole life. 59.What would be the best title for the passage? A. Dogs and Cats—the Most Popular Christmas Gifts. B. A pet is for Life, Not just for Christmas.[来源:Zxxk.Com] C. How to Take Care of Your Pets over Christmas. D. Let’s Help Those Abandoned Pets 60.The underlined words “rounded up” in Paragraph 2 mean “________”. A. given out as gifts C. gathered into one place 61. The fifth paragraph mainly tells us________. A. how to take best care of Christmas pets B. the right time to have a puppy as a pet C. the reasons why Christmas is not the time to get a pet D. the worries about Christmas pets from organizations that help pets 62. Why is the author against the idea of putting a dog in the Christmas stocking as a Christmas gift? A. Because these dogs can still cause damage. B. Because children will not take dogs seriously.[来源:学*科*网 Z*X*X*K] C. Because children don’t like to have dogs as Christmas gifts. D. Because a Christmas stocking is not big enough to put a dog in. ( C ) Today’s children are the “result” of the modern society. Our parents have jobs that keep them busy almost all day long. They only have a free day in a week. This doesn’t allow them to keep an eye on their children. On the other hand, the modern society gives more freedom to the children than they could “handle”. As a child, you don’t know how to grow up by yourself until you reach a certain age. That is why you need school and parents to be by your side all the time. If you don’t have either of them you may make a lot of mistakes. The social system of the modern society is very lenient B. thrown away D. raised to make money
especially with the children. Most of the children today are rebels (判逆者). They are rude. They are given too much freedom by their families. This is their parent’s mistake. They ought to know that the freedom they give to their children is misunderstood. For example it is a bad thing for a 17 – year – old child to go out in the evening on weekends. Parents are also guilty(负疚的) of the way their children show up in the street or at school. The same guilt belongs to the teaching system as well. Pupils shouldn’t be allowed to dress like they were on a fashion presentation at school. Another important fact we can think of regarding the freedom of children is their free will of spending money. Parents shouldn’t allow their children to spend money on whatever they want. I think children are given too much freedom not only by their parents, but also by the society. The latter is more to be blamed! 63．The writer implies that parents’ busy lifestyle A. makes their children become independent relations hip C. is harmful to their children’s health A. Not responsible B. Not strict. D. is likely to create a troubled generation C. Unkind. . B. can wear trendy clothes at school D. can be allowed to go out in the evenings D. Unfair. 64．What does the underlined word “lenient” (in Para 2) mean? 65．It seems that the writer agrees that students A. should stay at home on weekends C. had better wear school uniform at school problems? A.The social environment. B. The educational system. C. Each family. ( D ) A person, like a commodity(商品), needs packaging. But going too far is absolutely undesirable. A little exaggeration, however, does no harm when it shows the person’s unique qualities to their advantages. To show personal attractiveness in a casual and natural way, it is important for one to have a clear knowledge of oneself. A skilled packager knows how to add art to nature without any signs of embellishment(装饰), so that the person so packaged is not a commodity but a human being, lively and lovely. A young person, especially a female, shining with beauty and full of life, has all the favor granted by God. Any attempt to make up would be self-defeating. Youth, however, comes and goes in a flash. Packaging for the middle-aged is primarily to hide the marks made by years. If you still enjoy life enough to keep self-confidence and work at pioneering work, you are unique in your natural qualities, and your attractiveness and grace will remain. Elderly people are beautiful if their river of life has been , through plains, mountains and jungles, running its course as it should. You have really lived your life, which now arrives at a self-satisfied stage of quietness and calmness with no interest in fame or wealth .There is no need to make use of hair dying. They snow-capped mountain is itself a beautiful scene of fairyland. Let your looks change from young to old in step with the natural aging process so as to keep in harmony with nature, for harmony itself is beauty, while the other way round will only end in unpleasantness. To be in the elder’s D. The school. . B. may lead to a tense parent – child
66．According to the writer, which of the following takes the primary responsibility for children’s
company is like reading a thick book of deluxe(better quality) edition that attracts one so much as to be unwilling to part with. As long as one finds where one stands, one knows how to package oneself, just as a commodity sets up its brand by the right packaging. 67. It can be concluded from the text that_______. A. proper packing makes people attractive way C. elderly people also care about packing. A. dye your hair C. follow the aging process 69.For the middle-aged, attractiveness________. A. hardly exists C. comes from the inside A. are usually packed like a finely-made book B. experience a lot and have rich knowledge of life. C. do a lot of traveling and can give you much information. D. enjoy reading thick books of beautiful nature and fairyland. 第二节 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分， 满分 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。 How can I fight laziness? Lazy people will never amount to anything in life. However, laziness can be defeated once a few changes have been made in your mind. ___71____ . Many people lack sleep constantly, since they stay up too late and get up too early to prepare for work. These people have little motivation once they arrive home. Laziness works hand in hand with a lack of motivation and a tendency to put off things.

They make their living by collecting and selling used thing. Their children cannot go to school because they have not enough money to send their children to there. Why you think so many people still suffer from poverty now? The answer lies on the population explosion.. A president of a developing country once say: “ It is us who are to blame for the poverty because we used to ‘produce’ children without limit.” Although this few words sound simple enough, they have clear pointed out one of the causes of the population explosion. 第二节 书面表达（满分 25 分） 大庆实验中学将于 2013 年 11 月 18 日举行建校 28 周年校庆活动。假设你是校学生会 主席李华， 现将代表全体学生邀请学校优秀毕业生景琳， 回校参加校庆典礼活动并为学生做 报告。请根据以下要点写一封 e-mail 向景琳发出邀请。 1.时间： 11 月 18 日上午 9 点；地点：学校操场；参加人员： 全校师生 2.报告内容：介绍大学生活及给予他们学习生活方面的建议。 3. 11 月 3 日前回复是否可以前来。 注意：1. 词数 100 个左右。 2. 信的开头已为你写好，不计入总词数。 提示词：28 周年庆典：the 28th anniversary celebration Dear Jing Lin, How is everything with you ?
