Here are some wonderful festivals around the world that happen in spring. SongKran--Thailand Dates: 13th-15th, April In Thailand, it’s time to celebrate the coming monsoon season, which will bring the rain many people have been looking forward to. They celebrate it with a festival called Songkran, when people head out to the streets with water guns to spray(喷，洒）everyone who walks past. If you walk on the streets where the festival is celebrated, prepare to get soaked! Naghol--Vanuatu
Dates: Every Saturday from April to May Every year, villagers come together to celebrate the harvest of yams, an important part in the peopls’s diet in Vanuatu. The festival is most famous for its “land diving ceremony”. During the ceremony men and boys dive to the ground from high wooden towers with only two thin vines attached(附于)to their ankles(脚踝）. The divers’ heads have to lightly touch the ground when they jump---something very dangerous if the vines are not measured（测量）properly. Cherry Blossom Viewing ---Japan Dates: The cherry blossom season is different from year to year depending on the weather forecast. The cherry blossom season has huge importance to the people of Japan, who celebrate the days when the flowers finally blossom. Only a few days later, the petals(花瓣） fall to the ground, like pink snowflakes. This is one of the most beautiful things to see. In Japan, almost everyone has picnics in the parks to view the flowers. Sinhalese New Year--Sri Lanka Dates: 13th or 14th, April Just like in many other countries in South an South East Asia, this is the time when the Sinhalese celebrate the traditional New Year, an ancient celebration which marks the end of the harvest season and is one of two times of the year when the sun is straight above Sri Lanka. There are a lot of delicious foods during the celebration. 56. What does the underlined word “ soaked” in Paragraph 2 probably mean? A. tired B. wet C. crazy D. interested 57. The writer thinks that the “land diving ceremony” can be dangerous for the divers because ___________. A. the divers may fall onto the ground if the thin vines break B. the divers may bump into （撞在…上）the wooden tower on the way down C. the divers’ ankles may get injured if the vines are tied too tightly D. the divers may injure（伤害）their heads if the vines aren’t measured properly 58. We can learn from the passage that__________________. A. the Cherry Blossom Celebration usually lasts a long time in Japan B. the Cherry Blossom Celebration is the most important festival in Japan C. the time for the Cherry Blossom Celebration in Japan can be different yearly D. people usually stay at home for celebration during the cherry blossom season. B Towards the end of Middle English, a sudden change in pronunciation started, with vowels being pronounced shorter and shorter. From the 16th century the British had contact with people from around the world. This means that many new words and phrases entered the language. The invention of printing also meant that there was a common language in print. Books became cheaper and more people learned to read. Spelling and grammar became fixed and the dialect （方言）of London became the standard. In 1604, the first English dictionary was published. The numbers of words in Early Modern English and Late Modern English differ. Late Modern English has a lot more words because of two main factors: firstly, the Industrial Revolution created a need for new words; secondly, the British Empire covered one quarter of the earth’s surface, and the English language took in foreign words from many countries. From around 1600, the English colonization(殖民地化)of North America resulted in the creation of American English. Some English pronunciation and words froze when they reached America. In some ways, American English is more like the English of Shakespeare than modern British English. Some expressions that the British call “ Americanisms” are in fact original （原先 的） British expressions that were preserved (保存) in the colonies but were lost in Britain. Spanish also had an influence on American English, with words like canyon, ranch, stampede and vigilante
being examples of Spanish words that entered English. French words and West African words also influenced American English. Today, American English is the most influential(有影响力的). But there are many other kinds of English around the world, including Australian English, New Zealand English, Canadian English, South African English , Indian English and Caribbean English. They have differences. 59. What can we know from Paragraph 1? A. The dialect of London became the standard in the year 1604. B. Vowels were pronounced longer towards the end of Middle English C. The first English dictionary was published in the early 17th century. D. Many new words entered English because many people moved to Britain. 60. From Paragraph 2, we know that the Industrial Revolution __________. A. required spelling and grammar to be fixed B. required a greater number of English words C. caused many old English words to be useless D. led to the English colonization of North America. 61. The underlined word “froze” in Paragraph 3 shows that some English words in America___________. A. became longer B. greatly changed C. a little changed D. stayed as they were 62. What will the paragraph following this passage most probably discuss? A. The development of Modern English B. How the English vocabulary became larger C. Differences among the different kinds of English D. Differences between Middle English and Modern English C Experts say it is not easy to get used to life in a new culture. “ Culture shock” is the term these experts use when talking about the feelings that people have in a new environment. There are three stages of culture shock, say the experts. In the first stage, the newcomers like their new environment. Then, when the fresh experience dies, they begin to hate the city, the country, the people and everything else. In the last stage, the newcomers begin to adjust to their surroundings and, as a result, enjoy their life more. There are some obvious factors in culture shock. The weather may be unpleasant. The customs may be different. The public service systems---the telephone, post office ,or transportation --may be difficult to work out. The simplest things seem to be big problems. The language may be difficult. Who feels culture shock? Everyone does in this way or that. But culture shock surprises most people. Very often the people having the worst culture shock are those who never had any difficulties in their home countries and were successful in their community. Coming to a new country, these people find they do not have the same established positions. They find themselves without a role, almost without an identity. They have to build a new self-image. Culture shock causes a feeling of disorientation (迷惘）. This feeling may be homesickness. When homesick, people feel like staying inside all the time. They want to protect themselves from the strange environment, and create an escape inside their room for a sense of security. This escape does solve the problem of culture shock for the short term, but it does nothing to make the person familiar with the culture. Getting to know the new environment and gaining experience--these are the long-term solutions to the problem of culture shock. 63.According to the passage, the more successful you are at home, _________________.
A. the fewer difficulties you may have abroad B. the more difficulties you may have abroad C. the more money you will earn abroad D. the less homesick you will feel abroad 64.Which of the following is NOT right according to the passage? A. “Culture shock” is a term used to describe the feelings that people experience in a new environment B. In the second stage of “ Culture shock”, people may hate the life in the new environment C. When you are homesick, you had better not stay at home all the time D. Every one of us doesn’t feel culture shock in this way or that 65.What is the main idea of the last paragraph? A. Escape unfamiliar environment B. The feeling of homesickness C. The best way to overcome (克服、战胜）culture shock: get familiar with the new culture D. Homesickness can solve the problem of culture shock D When I decided to get married, my father decided to share some wisdom. “Lori, it is just as easy to love a rich man as it is to love a poor man, “ he said. My boyfriend didn’t have much money, but I loved him. “What?” I cried. “ How can you say that? I want to marry for love, NOT for money.” “ But why not marry someone you love who has money?” he asked. “Rich men are materialistic（物质主义的）. I’d rather marry a poor man who loves me,” I said and he gave in. And as we went on, with my family growing, I learned why my father put such importance on money. We had to cover the rent, car, electricity, food, and medical bills. We were under lot of pressure. The worries over whether we would be asked to move out or if we had the money to wash our clothes at the Laundromat this week made me question if I did the right thing by marrying a “poor” man. I realized that I had entered the ranks of the poor. Not that I’d ever been rich. Most of my life, I considered us in the lower middle-class rank. We had a house of our own, food on the table, cars, clothes, and money for college. But now, as I listened to an apartment neighbour talk about her monthly “Mother’s Day” gift, I realized she was talking about her welfare check（政府发放的 救济金）. And another young mother tried to “help” me out by connecting me with a friend who stole baby clothes from a department store. “ For a small cut,” she said, “ I could return my ‘purchase’(购买的东西）for cash.” It made me sick. How poor was I? I had a college education but wasn’t using it. I insisted on not missing a minute of our children’s childhood and it came at a price. My husband was working as hard as he could and it wasn’t enough. But somehow we made it. The kids grew. Today, we look back and see the great values gained by going through those hard years. My children are not materialistic. They never thought they were poor growing up because we always managed to give a little bit of food, money, or clothes to the “poor”. They were satisfied with the simple things in life that come free such as a beach day or a horse back ride from their dad. We had our worries, but we still treasured our very favorite part of the day when we’d nest (栖息地）under the covers and talked about our future, the kids and how much we loved each other. Sure our financial(财政的) troubles caused a lot of fights, but we didn’t leave each other. We began to live a better life. We moved to a better community(社区）with good schools for the kids. And soon, we’ll face a new challenge with wealth. But we’ll never give up. My father died three years ago. Before he died, he knew I made the right choice. I’m proud of my decision. 66.The writer argued with her father because _________________.
A. she thought her father didn’t love her at all B. her father thought her boyfriend was too materialistic C. her father wanted her to marry a rich man while she didn’t D. she thought her father loved her boyfriend’s money more than him. 67.After getting married, the writer questioned if she had done the right thing to marry her husband because___________. A. she was often scolded(责骂)by her father B. she found her husband was irresponsible(不负责任的） C. he didn’t think her husband loved her deeply D. they lived a poor life with children to support 68.After their children were born, the writer_______________. A. often regretted not using her college education B. worked very hard in order to make more money C. had to steal baby clothes from a department store D. looked after her children as a professional (职业的,专业的）housewife 69. Why didn’t the writer’s children think they were poor growing up? A. Because the writer always gave them whatever they wanted B. Because the writer and her children often helped other people. C. Because the writer didn’t let her children play with their rich neighbours D. Because the writer let her children have a good life through receiving help from others. 70.What do you think is the theme(主题）of the story? A. Women should always make a decision by themselves B. Listening to the old is important when people get married C. Money doesn’t matter as much as love in marriage D. Children don’t mind whether they have a poor family or not
II 卷（共 35 分）
第四部分：任务型阅读（共 10 小题；每小题 0.5 分，满分 5 分） 请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单 词。注意：每个空格只填 1 个单词。 Congratulations! You are about to start a multi-faceted(多面的) journey of exploration. You are about to enter high school as a freshman. And here are some tips on how to start a new year at a new school. As a high school freshman, choose courses that suit you. I encourage you to take a few courses with the title “Honors”, because they are meant to be challenging and intellectually exciting. If you are hungering for knowledge, see if you can take Advanced Placement (AP) course （大学预修课）---courses that may allow students to earn college credit(学分) for performing satisfactorily in the AP exams held nationally every May. AP classes such as AP Environmental Science and AP Human Geography are well-known for being easy, so taking either of them would be a perfect way of getting yourself into the AP program deeply. Try to find a balance between in-school activities and out-of-school activities. An imbalance will surely cause you to be stressed. If you love sports, consider trying out for the various sports teams your school offers. Exercise is a great way to stay in shape, learn proper time management, gain new friendships, and keep your mind away from school day stress. Also consider joining your school’s band or some other clubs your school offers. Most importantly, be a part of activities that you are fond of.
If you’re a high achieving student, you’re probably asking yourself, “ What should I do to get into a top college?” The truth is that when most colleges judge your college application, they don’t focus on your freshman year grades or extracurricular activities. Freshman year of high school is supposed to be a time of exploration—a time to find out your favorites and to develop them in the future. However, the method to apply to (申请)colleges is sometimes confusing, so you would benefit yourself by at least knowing the types of standardized tests you need to take before applying to college. The best resource for this is “ The College Board”, the company that creates the college entrance exams you will take in the future. Your high school experiences will undoubtedly be very important to you. It is the last step before you begin your life as an adult. Freshman year of high school is the time to make your interests and activities to fit who you are. As a freshman, challenge yourself in and out of classroom. Stay positive , work hard and remember to have fun! Title:___71______ for high school freshmen ● Take a few courses with the Title Academics Choose 72 courses “Honors”. ● Taking AP courses can hunger for knowledge ● Consider joining various school Activities Achieve a 74 teams ●Consider joining your school’s band or some other school clubs ●Take part in the activities which you 76 ●Find your favorites and develop them Preparing for college Freshman year is mainly for you to explore ●Get to college ●It is the last step before you begin your The 78 of high school life as an adult ●Freshman year is the time to make your interests and activities to fit you ● Challenge yourself in and out of The author’s 79 classroom ● Stay positive , work hard and yourself. 80 77 the standardized tests you need to take before applying to 75 73 your
