If you are a diving enthusiast, you'll definitely love spending time in Playa La Audiencia since its waters are shallow，calm and filled with rocks covered with corals. Playa Brujas, Mazatlan Playa Brujas is probably one of the best surfing spots in Mazatlan. Playa Brujas is located 20 minutes' drive from the heart of Mazatlan and it's a popular spot among local surfers. If you are a surfer looking to hit some waves along the west coast of Mexico, you'll find Playa Brujas a very good spot to visit since Brujas possesses satisfactory waves all year round. North Beach, Isla Mujeres North Beach is one of the nicest beaches in Isla Mujeres and it is one of Mexico's finest beaches in the Yucatan Peninsula. North Beach boasts a nice stretch of beach with whitepowdery sand, warm turquoise waters and great diving spots. The best bit about North Beach besides its private location is that the beach is just minutes away by
boat from Caneun, so you're never too far from Cancun's tourist attractions such as Wet'n Wild Water Park and Xplor Eco Park, where you can enjoy caving adventures and zipline rides. Xpu Ha Beach Xpu Ha Beach is located roughly between Tulum and Playa del Carmen and it is a nice spot for relaxing under the sun, walking and horseback riding.Xpu Ha is located along the stunning Riviera Maya and unlike other beaches along the Mexican Riviera, Xpu Ha Beach boasts a subtle beach club atmosphere.Xpu Ha Beach isn't as busy as Mamita's beach club but it still possesses cool beach clubs, a rental shop and a hotel. 21．If someone has appreciation for caving adventures，he or she should go to________. A. North Beach B. Xpu Ha Beach C. Wet'n Wild Water Park D. Playa Brujas 22．One of the similarities that the four beaches share is that________. A. tourists can have some sports B. they have clubs C. the waters are shallow D. they have satisfactory wave 23．Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. Playa Brujas is close to Mazatlan and lies along the east coast of Mexico. B. North Beach is the finest beach in the Yucatan Peninsula for its private location. C. Tourists can rent some equipment at Xpu Ha Beach, which is as busy as others. D. When a couple with children choose a beach, Playa La Audiencia is their best choice B Many schools have established successful home visit programs. Home visits by teachers let parents and children know how much teachers care. Also, it is a way for teachers to learn more about their students , get the parents to pay more attention to their children’s education and bridge cultural gaps that might exist between students and teachers. Most teachers report that their home visits have a lasting effect on the child, the parents and on parent—teacher communication. The Head Start program has used home visits for many years. Head Start teachers are required to make at least two home visits for each student, regardless of their ability, during each school year in addition to regular parent-teacher conferences at school. Many U.S. kindergartens also require home visits by teachers before school starts. The visit approach varies from school to school and usually depends on the funding the source. In some schools, teachers prefer to visit in pairs. They feel more comfortable that way and sometimes need a translator in order to communicate with a child’s parents. Other teachers visit one-on-one with parents. Some interact with both the child and the parent. Many teachers may bring along learning activities for the child that also involve the parents participation. Normally, visits can last from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the teacher and the activities. When teachers get to know their students and their students’ families, the parents become more active in their children’s education. Home visits, not unnecessary as some people think, can give teachers the ideas they need to help all students succeed. 24. Home visits by teachers can . A. bridge cultural gaps existing between parents and teachers B. get students know that their teachers care about their parents C. get parents involved in their children’s education D. help establish good relationships between parents and children 25. From the second paragraph we know that home visits . A. are traditionally done by teachers before school starts B. are not a new idea C. are meant for students with low marks D. have replaced parent-teacher meeting 26. What is the third paragraph about?
A. Forms of home visits B. Reasons for home visits C. Advantages of home visits D. Tips for home visits 27. The effect of home visits is that________. A. parents have more opportunities to play with children. B. students can succeed more easily through their own efforts. C. teachers can learn more about how to help students. D. parents play a decisive role in children’s education. C Family life is being disrupted because parents and children are overwhelmed by the huge volumes of emails and social messaging updates they are handling each day, according to a new study．As a result one in three of us are now desperate to cut down our use of Twitter and Face book as well as emails． Surprisingly the study, by Cambridge University, found children as well as adults preferred to communicate face to face．More than half of all families said a "technology-free" time is important and a third of parents said technology had disrupted family life．The findings led family groups to warn that if parents end up spending more time checking emails and social networks than with their children, it could have a detrimental effect on the home． Amongst children aged 10 to 18, who have grown up with new technology, 38% admitted feeling overwhelmed by the volume of messages．Similar numbers of adults felt the same way, with 34 per cent of 25 to 34 year olds agreeing． Justine Roberts, founder of parenting website Mums net, warned: "Social media is something we have to keep a watch on because it can eat into your life．" "We encourage our members to switch off because otherwise you can't give your kids and husband the time they need．" She added: "Websites like Face book and Twitter can be enjoyable and addictive but, like with everything, it needs to be taken in moderation．" The survey also discovered that 43 percent of children and 33 percent of adults are taking steps to reduce their reliance on messaging, text and networking．But only one in five said they would be reducing the number of text messages they are sending and even less said they will be writing fewer emails．Nearly 43 percent said they have had a cull of their Face book "friends" and followers on Twitter in an attempt to cut down on the amount of time spent on the websites． As part of the research, 63 families were asked to keep a diary of their use of communications technology．More than 1,250 adults were questioned in the research which was paid for by BT – the biggest broadband provider in the country． 28. Why are many people trying to cut down the use of Twitter and Face book as well as emails? A．Because they are determined to communicate face to face． B．Because they value "technology-free" time． C．Because they realize communication technology is disrupting family life． D．Because they have no free time． 29.The word "detrimental” in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to . A．effective B．harmful C．beneficial D．favorable 30.It can be inferred that _____benefits from the using of Twitter, Face book and email． A．BT B．Mums net C．Cambridge University D．family group 31．The writer mainly wants to tell us ______． A．Twitter, Face book and email are well received by both adults and children B．Twitter, Face book and email are playing an important role in social life C．we should be cautious about communication technology D．we should not use Twitter, Face book and email any more
D A few cups of green tea each day may help prevent heart disease, Greek researchers said on Wednesday. A study published in the European Journal of Cardiovascular (心血管的) Prevention showed further evidence of the potential health benefits from tea already linked to a reduced risk of a range of cancers and other conditions. The study showed that green tea improves blood flow and the ability of arteries (动脉) to relax, said Charalambos Vlachopoulos, an expert at the Athens Medical School in Greece who worked on the study. Other studies have shown that black tea also has benefits for cardiovascular health. The Greek team said they believed green tea might be even better because it had higher quantities of beneficial substances called flavonoids ( 类黄酮 )-some of which are lost in the oxidation (氧化) process that black tea undergoes. Flavonoids are also found in cocoa, tomatoes and grapes. "A couple of cups a day would probably be good for people," Vlachopoulos said. "This is the first study to show these effects for green tea." The researchers gave 14 healthy volunteers either green tea, coffee or hot water and then measured the function of endothelial cells (内皮细胞)．These cells help relax arteries and ease blood flow. "What is important is these effects are evident within 30 minutes, "Vlachopoulos said. The measurements taken 30, 90 and 120 minutes following consumption showed an almost immediate benefit among people who had drunk green tea, he said. While the researchers looked only at a short-term effect, Vlachopoulos said the team's studies suggest the protection is long-lasting. "Green tea is consumed less in the Western world than black tea, but it could be more beneficial," he said. 32．What would be the best title for the passage? A．Benefits from Black Tea B．Different Kinds of Tea C．Green Tea Protects Against Heart Disease D．Green Tea Reduces the Risk of Cancer 33．According to the study, green tea can do the following EXCEPT________. A．improve blood flow B．benefit cardiovascular health C．help relax arteries D．increase the oxidation rate of flavonoids 34．Which of the following statements is TRUE? A．Green tea is better than black tea because it has been processed. B．Green tea contains more flavonoids than black tea. C．Vlachopoulos's study is based on many years' research. D．Vlachopoulos's study shows the effects of Green tea are not evident in short time. 35．We can learn from the passage that________. A．14 volunteers with heart disease joined in the experiment B．it takes an hour for green tea to take effect C．green tea has a long－lasting effect according to Vlachopoulos D．Westerners prefer green tea to black tea 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。 Eyesight plays a very important role in our daily life.

I am very interested in this six-month Student Exchange program in Newcastle. I enjoy meeting people and I am quite a social person. I feel this is a great opportunity to make new friends and we can introduce our history and culture to each other. Currently I am studying at a boarding school here in China, so I think i can get on well with home-stay family. The experience also provides me a chance to improve my English, especially my spoken English.Besides,I enjoy traveling very much. I am really happy that I can go sightseeing in big cities like London and see beautiful landscapes and scenery of England in small towns. I think this programme would definitely broaden my horizon and help me have a better understanding of British customs. It would be a wonderful opportunity to learn and grow. Yours, Li-hua
