A We all long for friendship, but how to make a friend? ―The best time to make a friend is before you need one.‖ Joy Steven said. The following are some tips for you. People equal friends Friends usually begin with strangers. Getting in touch with other people is the first step to make a friend. Friends can’t be made in empty air. Best friends take time to make. Friends understand friends Friends understand each other when talking. Many unpleasant personal quarrels can be avoided if you will take the time to understand others’ feelings and points of view. Friends touch friends Touching is a warm from of communication between friends. When you see best friends communicating, you will notice them stand close together, touch each other comfortably and listen to each other. Sometimes a friendly touch is more powerful than words. Friends praise friends Praise is a powerful tool to make a friend. Honest praise can affect (影响) your friends’ lives. So try to praise your friends, including your general ones. Friends can be loyal (忠诚的) and trustworthy Trust and loyalty go hand in hand for friends. Friends can share secrets with you, because good friends never break confidence (信心) and are loyal forever. 36. From Joy Steven’s words, we can conclude that ________. A. a friend in need is a friend indeed B. it is never too late to make a friend C. it is late to make a friend when you need one D. everyone needs a friend in his life 37. To make and keep many friends, you need to do the following EXCEPT ___________. A. get in touch with people C. praise your friends B. understand your friends D. quarrel with your friends
38. The passage mainly tells us ______________. A. how to communicate with a friend C. when to make a friend B. how to develop friendship D. how to praise a friend
B Living and dealing with kids can be a tough job these days, but living and dealing with parents can be even tougher. If I have learned anything in my 16 years, it is that communication is very important, both when you disagree and when you get along. With any relationship, you need to let other person know how you are feeling. If you are not able to communicate, you drift apart. When you are mad at your parents, or anyone else, not talking to them doesn’t solve anything. Communication begins with the concerns (关心) of another. It means that you can’t just come home from school, go up to your room and ignore (不理睬) everyone. Even if you just say “Hi”, and see how their day was for five minutes, it is better than nothing. If you looked up the word “communication” in a dictionary, it would say “the exchange of ideas, the conveyance(表达)of information, correspondence(通信), means of communication: a letter or a message”. To maintain (保持) a good relationship, you must keep communication strong. Let people know how you feel, even if it’s just by writing a note. When dealing with parents, you always have to make them feel good about how they are doing as a parent. If you are trying to make them see something as you see it, tell them that you’ll listen to what they have to say, but ask them politely to listen to you. Yelling or walking away only makes the situation worse. This is an example: one night, Sophie went to a street party with her friends. She knew she had to be home by midnight after the fireworks, but she didn’t feel she could just ask to go home. That would be rude. After all, they had been nice enough to take her along with them. Needless to say, she was late getting home. Her parents were mad at first, not when Sophie explained why she was late, they weren’t as mad and let the incident go. Communication is the key factor here. If Sophie’s parents had not been willing to listen, Sophie would have been in a lot of trouble. Communication isn’t a one-way deal: it goes both ways. Just remember: if you get into a situation like Sophie’s, telling the other person how you feel---listening is the key factor to communication. 39. In the writer’s view, dealing with parents is __________ than with children. A. more difficult B. easier C. more uninteresting D. more interesting 40. The main idea of the second paragraph is __________. A. the importance of friendship B. to make your feeling known to others C. the importance of communication D. the disagreement between generations 41. When parents and children are in communication, the key to a happy relationship is that __________. A. children should always obey their parents B. they should be equal C. parents play the leading part D. both make the opposite know their feelings 42. The example in this passage proves that ___________.
A. Sophie’s parents are willing to listen to her B. Sophie is very polite to her parents C. Sophie did well in explaining her being late D. communication is the solution to misunderstanding C When I was six, Dad brought home a dog one day, who was called “Brownie”. My brothers and I all loved Brownie and did different things with her. One of us would walk her, another would feed her, then there were baths, playing catch and many other games. Brownie, in return, loved each and every one of us. One thing that most touched my heart was that she would go to whoever was sick and just be with them. We always felt better when she was around. One day, as I was getting her food, she chewed up (咬破) one of Dad’s shoes, which had to be thrown away in the end. I knew Dad would be mad and I had to let her know what she did was wrong. When I looked at her and said, “Bad girl,” she looked down at the ground and then went and hid. I saw a tear in her eyes. Brownie turned out to be more than just our family pet, she went everywhere with us. People would stop and ask if they could pet her. Of course she’d let anyone pet her. She was just the most lovable dog. There were many times when we’d be out walking and a small child would come over and pull on her hair. She never barked (吠) or tried to get away. The funny thing is that she would smile. This frightened people because they thought she was showing her teeth. Far from the truth, she loved everyone. Now many years have passed since Brownie died of old age. I still miss days when she was with us. 43. What would Brownie do when someone was ill in the family? A. Look at them sadly. B. Keep them company. C. Play games with them. D. Touch them gently. 44. We can infer from Paragraph 2 that Brownie__________. A. would eat anything when hungry B. felt sorry for her mistake C. loved playing hide-and-seek D. disliked the author’s dad 45. Some people got frightened by Brownie when she__________. A. smiled B. barked C. rushed to them D. tried to be funny 46. Which of the following best describes Brownie? A. Shy B. Polite C. Brave D. Caring D I grew up in a house where the TV was seldom turned on and with one wall in my bedroom entirely lined with bookshelves, most of my childhood was spent on books I could get hold of. In fact, I grew up thinking of reading as natural as breathing and books unbelievably powerful in shaping perspectives (观点) by creating worlds we could step into, take part in and live in. With this unshakable belief, I, at fourteen, decided to become a writer. Here too, reading became useful. Every writer starts off knowing that he has something to say, but being unable to find the right ways to say it. He has to find his own voice by reading widely and discovering which parts of the writers he agrees or disagrees with, or agrees with so strongly that it reshapes his own world. He cannot write without loving to read, because only through reading other people’s writing can one discover what works, what doesn’t and, in the end, together with lots of practice, what voice he has.
Now I am in college, and have come to realize how important it is to read fiction (文学作品). As a law student, my reading is in fact limited to subject matter—the volume (量) of what I have to read for classes every week means there is little time to read anything else. Such reading made it all the clearer to me that I live in a very small part in this great place called life. Reading fiction reminds me that there is life beyond my own. It allows me to travel across the high seas and along the Silk Road, all from the comfort of my own armchair, to experience, though secondhand, exciting experiences that I wouldn't necessarily be able to have in my lifetime. 47. What can be inferred about the author as a child? A. He never watched TV. B. He read what he had to. C. He found reading unbelievable. D. He considered reading part of his life. 48. The underlined word “voice” in the second paragraph most probably means “ ”. A. an idea B. a sound quality C. a way of writing D. a world to write about 49. What effect does reading have on the author? A. It helps him to realize his dream. B. It opens up a wider world for him. C. It makes his college life more interesting. D. It increases his interest in worldwide travel. 50. Which of the following can be the best title of this text? A. Why do I read? B. How do I read? C. What do I read? D. When do I read? 四、单词拼写 （共 10 小题；每小题 0.5 分，满分 5 分） 51. Bill Gates d____________ a lot of money to the people in poor areas every year. 52. When I was i____________ of the exciting news, I jumped with joy. 53. A bird was caught in the net and was s____________ to get free. Jim rushed to help it out. 54. Good after-sales service is one of the most important keys to improving customer s_________. 55. When someone asks what the main c____________ of sea water is, what comes into your mind first may be salt. 56. He is not a good doctor because he is short of e （经验）. 57. In order to become ____________（流利的）in any foreign language, you require years of practice and study. 58. Looking after a baby is as ____________（具有挑战性的）as working on a new job. 59. The news that I just told you was____________(广播) this morning. 60. The students are working hard every day, in ___________ (准备)for the big examination. 五、任务型阅读（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） Five tips to deal with stress Stress, the biggest enemy of the modern world ! It kidnaps our peace of mind, tortures our evenings when we return home from work and murders those beautiful moments. But like all enemies, this enemy can also be got rid of ! Put your body in motion. Moving from the chair to the couch while watching TV is not being physically active! Physical activity is one of the most important ways to keep stress away by clearing your head and lifting your spirits. Physical activity also increases endorphin levels--- the natural “feel-good” chemicals. Laugh
Some say that laughter is the best medicine---well, in many cases, it is! Do you know that it takes 15 facial muscles to laugh? Lots of laughing can make you feel good--- and, that good feeling can stay with you even after the laughter stops. So, head off stress with regular doses of laughter by watching a funny movie or cartoons, reading a joke book, or even make up your own riddles…laughter can make you feel like a new person! Everyone has those days when they do something really silly or stupid. Instead of getting upset with yourself, laugh out loud! No one’s perfect! Life should be about having fun. So, lighten up! Have fun with friends. Being with people you like is always a good way to get rid of your stress. Get a group together to go to the movies or play a board game---or just hang out and talk. Friends can help you work through your problems and let you see the brighter side of things. Spill(发泄) to someone you trust. Instead of keeping your feelings bottled up inside, talk to someone you trust or respect about what’s bothering you. It could be a friend, a parent, someone in your family, or a teacher. Talking out your problems and seeing them from a different view might help you figure out ways to deal with them. Just remember, you don’t have to let it alone! Lend a hand. Get involved in an activity that helps others. It’s almost impossible to feel stressed out when you’re helping someone else. It’s also a great way to find out about yourself and the special qualities you never knew you had! Signing up for a service project is a good idea, but helping others is as easy as saying hello, holding a door, or volunteering to keep a neighbor’s pet. The feeling you will get from helping others is greater than you can imagine! In conclusion, remember, you’re not alone---everyone has stresses in their lives…it’s up to you to choose how to deal with them. Lead in We can get 61 of stress Being 63 active. ·To keep stress away. ·To 64 endorphin levels 65 up and laughing. ·To make you feel good. ·To make you feel like a new person. 62 Hanging 66 with friends. ·To help you work through your problems. ·To make you have a positive attitude towards things Talking to someone you trust. · To help you figure out ways to deal with.

A Hi! Rob and Sally, Time flies, especially when it’s a good time! I’m now back in Brisbane, refreshed after a sound sleep. We came to the moment when we had to say good-bye to each other before I actually realized it. The moment I reached your home, I couldn’t help associating your living surroundings with a beautiful garden in our country where many people (especially senior citizens) flock to relax or exercise. But actually in China it seems like a dream for people to have such a habitat, with countless trees, flowers and various grass surrounding. Honestly, I can remember that I have only ever read about it in a fairy tale. To you, my friend, I owe a great debt of heartfelt appreciation for not only providing us with an excellent exploration of quite a different exotic culture and specific customs, but also presenting us a feast for our eyes, allowing us to learn a lot from you---- the true love between you and Sally, our friendly hostess; fine qualities of hard work and kindness; considerate care and help for others, just to name a few. Thanks for the many times you took trouble to take us to and pick us from lots of different places---shopping centres, schools, and some scenic spots. And thank you for the delicious dishes you made for us. At each dinner, you always took into account Chinese flavour, which made us feel at home. The most impressive one is “Christmas pudding”, a mouth-watering dish that Sally elaborately made for us. And then comes the unforgettable occasion--- a night club in another town, through which we learned a lot about a typical Aussie life. It is really, really a dream place for elderly people to while away the time. From the figure games, from the stage performance, from the smiles, from the laughter, from the whistles, applause, etc, it takes little mental labour for us to find what a happy life you were living. I nearly could not hide my jealousy. Before I come to the end of my email, I’d like to say to you, my friends, Rob and Sally, that more walking less driving; more fruit less cigarettes; more leisure less work, and you’ll make more out of life and enjoy more of life. It’s really an experience I’ll treasure forever. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Waiting to see our pictures. Yours Whisky 36. Which of the following can not be used to describe Rob and Sally? A. considerate B. friendly C. hard-working D. modest 37. The writer writes to thank Rob and Sally for the following except_______. A. providing an excellent exploration of many things B. an unforgettable visit to another town C. delicious dishes like “Chinese pudding” D. the trouble they took to help the writer learn. 38. The underlined word “while away” can be instead of ______. A. kill B. take C. spend D. cost 39. Which of the following is not true according to the passage? A. The writer had a good time with Rob and Sally when they were together.

B. They enjoyed many delicious Chinese dishes. C. Many things left a deep impression on the writer. D. The writer appreciated the way people there lived. B Many children first learn the value of money by receiving an allowance. The purpose is to let children learn from experience at an age when financial mistakes are not very costly. The amount of money that parents give to their children to spend as they wish differs from family to family. Timing is another consideration. Some children get a weekly allowance. Others get a monthly allowance. In any case, parents should make clear what, if anything, the child is expected to pay for with the money. At first, young children may spend all of their allowance soon after they receive it. If they do this, they will learn the hard way that spending must be done within a budget. Parents are usually advised not to offer more money until the next allowance. The object is to show young people that a budget demands choices between spending and saving. Older children may be responsible enough to save money for larger costs, like clothing or electronics. Many people who have written on the subject of allowances say it is not a good idea to pay your child for work around the home. These jobs are a normal part of family life. Paying children to do extra work around the house, however, can be useful. It can even provide an understanding of how a business works. Allowances give children a chance to experience the things they can do with money. They can share it in the form of gifts or giving to a good cause. They can spend it by buying things they want. Or they can save and maybe even invest it. Saving helps children understand that costly goals require sacrifice: you have to cut costs and plan for the future. 40. The purpose of an allowance is _________. A. help children learn from experience early before financial mistakes are costly. B. let children buy what they want C. let them learn the value of money D. help children learn to save at an early age 41. What should parents be sure about before an allowance is given? A. what their children is expected to buy with the money B. how much money should be given as an allowance C. whether their children has a budget for the allowance D. whether their children are in need of the money 42. Which of the following is not mentioned in the passage? A. The amount of money that parents give to their children. B. How often they should give their children an allowance. C. Spending must be done within a budget. D. The more work they do at home, the more allowance they will receive. 43. It can be inferred from the passage that _______. A. Children should be paid for what they do at home. B. It is children’s responsibility to help parents with housework. C. Saving helps children understand that costly goals require sacrifice. D. Children can’t spend their allowance as they like.

C Solar water heaters are used around the world and are not very difficult to build. The system we are going to describe is based on a design developed some years ago in Afghanistan. Since then, it has been built and used in many countries. It can heat 70 liters of water to sixty degrees Celsius. It can do this between sunrise and noon on a clear day with an average air temperature of 32 degrees Celsius. There are 2 parts to the solar water heater. One part is made of a sheet of metal painted black. Black surfaces become hotter in the sun than surfaces painted any other color. This black metal plate is called a collector. The collector is placed in contact with the water. There are several kinds of metal sheets that can be used for the collector. Corrugated metal will work very well. Corrugated sheets are often used as roofs on housing. Once the water is heated, it is kept hot with insulation material. This allows the water to stay warm for a long time. The second part of the solar water heater holds the water for the system. This storage tank can be a container that holds about 100 liters. Two rubber pipes are attached to the water storage tank. One pipe lets water flow into the system. The other lets water flow out. When the water heater is working correctly, water will flow from the storage tank to the collector and back again. You can use the hot water at the top of the tank for washing and cleaning. You can change the flow of water so that the temperature is hot or warm as desired. This solar water heater is easy to build and operate. It will last about 2 years before the rubber pipes need to be replaced. There is also something else you will need to make the solar water heater work -- the sun. As you might expect, the heater will heat water only on sunny days. 44. Which of the following is not one of the advantages of a solar water heater? A. It is easy to build and operate. B. It can hold a lot of water and keep water warm for a long time. C.

I walked through that milestone through challenges in one winter. It was also a test for my perseverance and determination. If I thought of that trip, the first person I saw in mind is my uncle who took me along with him to be able to set a new milestone on my journey of life. One fine winter morning, he dropped in at

my house and asked me how much perseverance I could exert in practice. I was annoyed of being asked such a question. He smiled at me and continued that there would be a test for my perseverance if I was willing to take part in. Without second thought, I accepted his challenge. Then, I was taken to the foot of the mountain ranges and my uncle asked me if I was ready to take the test or not. A nod was an answer. Then, we started walking up along the mountain ranges. For first few mountain ranges, I seemed okay walking on a narrow lane up to the top of the mountain, but soon I found my strength was instantly wearing out. However, I had to keep on walking up as I had no choice. As soon as I stepped on the top of the mountain, I saw another mountain range there. Gradually my excitement declined and all I dreamed of at that time was a nice bed of mine at home. The more I walked on, the heavier my body was. I deeply came to know about the force of gravity. I wanted to give up my attempt of walking. But I saw my uncle’s face in my mind. I held up my head high again to reach my destination. The whole body was soaked with sweat while carrying a burden of beans along with me. I made up my mind not to think of too much. I tried to balance my steps on a narrow lane through the mountain ranges. I tried to carry my heavy body till I could see a pagoda at the peak of the mountain. It was the last mountain range. Air flowed out through my ears. I was too tired! I found myself crawling on a narrow lane to get there. At last, I reached my destination. A delight of conquering myself rolled up. I lay down at the bottom of the pagoda, smiling and watching at the highest point of the pagoda. 48. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined word “exert”?

注意：每空格 1 个单词。 Some people say eating hot chili peppers can help you breathe easier if you have a cold. Others believe that chilies give you more energy. All we know is that people have been growing chilies for centuries. And there are plenty of different kinds of chili peppers to choose from, along with different levels of heat. Want to spice up your meals with homegrown chilies? They need a warm climate. If you plant the seeds outside when the weather is cool, place a glass over them. That will add warmth from the sun and protect them from wind. You can also start the seeds in your home or a greenhouse. If you plant chili peppers inside, fill an eight-centimeter pot with soil. The pot should have holes in the bottom so water can run out. Tap the sides of the pot to settle the soil. Drop several seeds over the surface of the pot and cover with a thin layer of vermiculite. Vermiculite is a material that can hold air, water and nutrients. Then cover the top of the pot with a see-through plastic bag. Hold the bag in place with a rubber band. Place the pot in a warm area. When the chilies start growing, take off the bag. When the plants have reached about two centimeters high, place each one carefully in its own eight-centimeter pot. When the roots show through the holes in the bottom of the pot, transplant each seedling into a twelve-centimeter pot. When the plants are twenty centimeters high, tie the plants to a stick placed in the pot to support them. When the chili peppers are thirty centimeters high, pinch the tops off with your fingers. That should get new branches to grow. When the first flowers show, give the plants some potash fertilizer. When the weather is warm, put them into five-liter pots and place them outside. Make sure they get a good amount of light and water. Some people like mild chilies, others like plenty of heat. Some like to harvest the plants when the chilies are green. Others like their chilies red. Either way can give color and taste to many different foods. Some ___61___ of people about chili ? Eating hot chilli peppers can help you breathe easier if you have a cold. ? Chillies make you more _____62____. ____64____ plays an important role in growing chillies when you want to plant them outside. ? A pot ___66____ with soil is necessary and there should be a ____67____ in the bottom for water to run out. ?

二 完型填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 20 分） The house next door had been empty for so long that we had quite forgotten what it was to have neighbors. One day, 16 , a great furniture lorry drew up near our front gate and in a short time, all kinds of furniture were 17 on the pavement. A small car arrived, out of which came seven people, a man, a woman and five children of 18 ages. The children hurried out and began laughing 19 as the whole family moved into the house. Windows were 20 open; furniture was put into 21 ; and little faces looked curiously at us over the fence and disappeared. It was our first 22 to the Robinsons. Though we became firm 23 with our new neighbors, we often had causes to be made angry by them. Our garden became an unsafe place: little boys 24 as cowboys or Indians would jump up from behind bushes, 25 wooden guns at us and 26 us to put our hands up. Sometimes our lives were 27 ; at others, we were killed with a 28 “Bang! Bang!”. Even more dangerous were the arrows that occasionally came sailing 29 the garden fence. But we did not 30 go in fear for our lives. The Robinsons were friendly and helpful and when we left for the holidays, we knew we had nothing to fear 31 our neighbors were around. We understood what it was like to have 32 in the long, friendless, winter evenings 33 Mr. Robinson would 34 in for a cup of tea and chat; or when Mr. Robinson would 35 over the fence and talk endlessly with father about gardening problems. 16.

三 阅读理解（每题 2 分，共计 30 分） A As a child, I remember listening to a song called "Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen（哥本哈 根）." When I visited the city last year, that song kept running through my head. It got me wondering: Just what is wonderful about Copenhagen? It's not a place filled with world-famous tourist sites. But it does have a charm（魅力）that makes you want to linger. You can sample the food, visit the castles and museums, and learn about the life of the Danes. Stoget, the world's longest pedestrian (人行道) mall, runs through the center of the old city. This string of lively street and squares makes walking a treat. I happily explored the mall, looking in the windows of shops and cafes. I followed Stoget from the square in front of the city hall to Nyhavn. Here, old houses painted bright colors look out over a picturesque harbor filled with sailing ships. Denmark's beloved storyteller Hans Christian Andersen lived here when he wrote his first stories. From Nyhavan, I continued heading north. I wanted to see Copenhagen's symbol, the statue of the Little Mermaid (美人鱼). She was set up in honor of Hans Christian Andersen's famous story. As I continued my city tour, one thing impressed me all the bicycles. I learned that half the population of Copenhagen rides bikes every day. Only 20 percent of Copenhageners own cars because there is a 180 percent tax on them. That certainly keeps the city free of traffic jams and heavy pollution！ It's easy to join all the bicyclists riding through the streets, too. The city provides free bicycles that anyone can use. The cycling around the castles and parks made a relaxing end to a full day. As darkness fell and the parks' lights began to twinkle, I watched families enjoying themselves. So what is wonderful about Copenhagen? Just about everything. 36. What is the purpose of referring to the song in the 1st paragraph? A. To arouse the interest of the readers in the city of Copenhagen. B. To show the readers that Copenhagen is a wonderful city. C. To express the puzzled feeling of the author. D. To ask the readers to find out what is wonderful about Copenhagen. 37. The word "linger" in the 2nd paragraph is most close to______ A. walk B. stay C. learn D. leave 38. The underlined sentence“makes walking a treat” in the 3rd paragraph means_________ A. You can find various food in this string of lively street and squares B. You will meet many people when walking along the string of lively street and squares C. Walking will be a great pleasure because of the string of lively street and squares D. The string of lively street and squares make people eager to walk along 39. Which of the following is TRUE? A. Copenhagen is a city with lots of places of interest. B. Stoget is the biggest pedestrian mall in the world. C. The government of Copenhagen does encourage people to ride bicycles. D. Nyhavn is a city hall where Hans Christian Anderson once worked. B Bellwood, IL—— Kombo Peshu came to the United States from the poor village of Mwanda, Kenya, ten years ago when Father Richard Quinn gave him the chance to further his education .Kombo was given a full scholarship to study for a master’s degree（硕士学位）. When Kombo returned to Kenya for a visit four years later, he realized how lucky he was to

have received his education in the United States. Over the four years he was in America, conditions in Mwanda had worsened, and he was struck by how many children were struggling to receive a proper education. Kombo knew that he had to give back to his people after witnessing such hardships. First, he began to give money out of his own pocket ,but he soon realized he had to do more. He went back to the United States and asked for donations, and was finally able to raise enough to start the Mughamba Scholarship Foundation, a fund for children in his village of Mwanda who cannot afford school. The people around him were so moved by his emotional accounts of these children that some of them not only gave money but also traveled with him back to Mwanda to see what daily life is like for these children. Kombo continues to work hard to raise money for his village and now has 40 students on scholarships for high school and 5 at universities in Kenya. In addition to continuing to raise money for his scholarship fund and by selling traditional Kenyan items, he is also working to raise money to get more running water in his village. 40.

But what can you do if your kids do not behave themselves at the dinner tables? The following are seven tips to set your children on the road to good table manners: ●Look for the good. Instead of pointing out all the things your children do wrong, point out what they do right. Please say, for example, “ I am so proud of you. It was wonderful the way you served yourself.” ●Don’t turn dinner into an unpleasant “lecture time”. That will turn kids off not only manners, but dinner, and you, too. ●Check your own example. Don't show up for dinner in just your underwear ( 内衣) unless you want your kids to do the same. ●Don't always consider your kids lazy and dirty ones. Instead, point out the behavior in a tender way. For example: “It’s a good idea to unfold your napkin, so if food falls you won’t dirty your clothes.” ●Teach your kids good manners in the form of a game. One night a week, try to have a formal dinner. Try dressing up, serve a special meal, and expect more formal manners. That will help improve their sense of manners. ● Make kids understand part of the tradition. Invite guests over and let kids help serve them. This helps them indirectly learn about table manners. ●Try dining out once in a while. Fast food restaurants aren't counted(算在内). Try a nice restaurant and let kids order their own food, pay the bill and give the tip. 47. The passage is mainly written for ____. A. kids B. parents C. hosts D. guests 48.

The US Department of Health and Human Services offers the following suggestions for ways to deal with stress. Try physical activity. When you are nervous, angry or upset, try releasing the pressure through exercise or physical activity. Running, walking, playing tennis, or working in your garden are just some of the activities you might try. Take care of yourself. You should make every effort to eat well and get enough rest. If you easily get angry and cannot sleep well enough, or if you're not eating properly, it will be more likely that you will fall into stressful situations. If stress repeatedly keeps you from sleeping, you should consult a doctor. Make time for yourself. Schedule time for both work and entertainment. Don' t forget, play can be just as important to you over-all well-being as work. You need a break from your daily routine to just relax and have fun. Go window-shopping or work on a hobby. Allow yourself at least a half hour each day to do something you enjoy. Make a list of the things you need to do. Stress can result from disorganization and a feeling that "there's so much to do, and not enough time. Trying to take care of everything at once can be too much for you and as a result, you may B. make kids interested in D. make kids fond of

One day, Mom was sewing(缝补) a quilt(被子). I 38 sat down beside her. "Mom, I have a 39 here," I said after a while. "Is there love between you and Dad?" I asked her in a very 40 voice. Mom stopped her work and raised her head with 41 in her eyes. She didn't answer immediately. She bent her head and continued to sew the quilt. I was 42 if I had hurt her. I was in great embarrassment and I was at a loss what to do. But at last she said, very 43 , "Susan, look at this 44 . Sometimes it appears but most of it disappears in the quilt.

I truly believe the teen years were the hardest time of my life. At that time, as a girl, I hated it when my parents asked me directly about my problems, making me more comfortable. I also remember many times when Mr. Templat would take me aside and talk to me. He had a special way of drawing out what the problem was. Every time he talked with me, I felt better He had a way of making his classes enjoyable. We always got the highest marks in math in our grade with his teaching. If there was a big world ball game on the radio, we would drop everything and he would put the name on so we could all enjoy it. That’s just the way he is. Teens often hear things on TV or from adults about world problems that can frighten them. Now it is terrorism. Back in my teen years, it was the cold war. It worried me so much that I thought each day would be my last. Mr. Templat knew how much it troubled his students. He opened the subject up to discussion. He gave us a way to express our greatest fears and helped us understand war and politics. “One can feel afraid however brave he is.” We were told. When I think back to those special days, I appreciate that he helped me through such a

difficult time in my life. 36. To learn about the problems the writers had, Mr Templat would _________________. A. ask her about the problems directly B. wait until she told him about them C. ask her parents about the problems without letting her know D. ask her about them without making her feel uncomfortable 37. From the second paragraph, we learn that __________________. A. Mr. Templat was a very serious man B. the students could do whatever they like in Mr. Templat’s class C. the students like Mr. Templat’s teaching very much D. the students were more interested in sports than in their studies 38.

B He had travelled thousands of miles in the hope of earning some money, but 18-year old Lin Kongming never knew danger was waiting for him. He and six other migrant workers from Fujian Province spent 36 hours in Iraq as international hostages(人质). But luckily, they were set free last Tuesday morning, unharmed by the people who had taken them hostages. After hard work by Chinese diplomats(外交官) in the region, the Iraqi kidnappers(绑架者) agreed to hand them over to a local religious group. “The friendly relations between the Chinese and Iraqi people have played a key role in the release （释放）of the hostages,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan. China refused to join the US-led coalition(联军) in the Iraqi war. Since April 4, over 60 hostages from 12 countries, including America, Italy and Japan, have been taken in Iraq. Some have been released, others were killed. The Iraqi resistance groups have started taking foreigners hostages in an attempt to force the US-led troops out of their country. As a result, many foreigners have left, fearing the situation will get worse. Some nations are also considering removing their troops from Iraq. Thailand has ordered its forces not to leave their camp and may bring them home before September as originally planned. New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark is considering similar action. But Dan Senor, spokesman for the US-led coalition in Baghdad, said that it would not negotiate(谈判) with “terrorists(恐怖分子) or kidnappers” to get hostages released. 39. The seven workers from Fujian were set free mainly because _________________. A. they were too poor to pay anything B. kidnappers didn’t know they were Chinese C. China didn’t take sides with the US-led coalition D. kidnappers were friendly to the Chinese 40. Why did the Iraqi resistance groups start to take foreigners hostages? A. To show their anger towards the occupation of foreign troops. B. To tell the world they would fear nothing. C. To make foreign armies leave their country. D. To resist the American troops. 41. The author talks about Dan Senor to show the US ______________. A. wouldn’t give in to Iraqi terrorists or kidnappers B. had enough power to station in Iraq C. wouldn’t give up unless it could get something D. had no plan to bring its troops home 42. The passage mainly tells us _____________________. A. the hostage crisis(危机) in Iraq B. foreigners were not welcome in Iraq

C. the Chinese hostages were set free D. keeping away from Iraq is a wise choice C In May 1944, when Ralph was a sailor stationed in the Pacific, he wrote a love letter to a girl named Gloria back in Chicago. He also wrote to his wife, Lillian. You can imagine Lillian’s surprise when she opened her letter and found Gloria’s included. “Dear Gloria,” it began. “It’s about time I introduced myself. We haven’t met, yet I have heard so much about you, I must say I’ve fallen in love.” “This confession might come as a shock, since you know nothing about me except what other people have told you. Don’t take them too seriously. I’m really not a bad fellow once you get to know me. And my feelings for you will never change as long as I live. ” “I hope this makes the proper impression and you won’t think me too bold. Send me a picture. And please my love for you locked in your heart, to be opened only when I call for it in person.” Gloria, now in her mid-40s, mailed me the letter, along with the one Ralph wrote in May 1994 to Lillian. Gloria was three months old when Ralph, her father, mailed them both. He’d been on a warship for ten months and had never seen her. He’s now 80 and still happily married to Lillian, Gloria’s mother. 43 After Lillian read the letters ______.

Ralph was an amusing man C. Gloria didn’t think Ralph was a good boyfriend D. Ralph put the two letters in one envelope by carelessness D Skin-diving is a new sport today． This sport takes you into a wonderful new world． It is like a visit to the moon！When you are under water，it is easy for you to climb big rocks， because you are no longer heavy． Here， under water， everything is blue and green． During the day， there is enough light． When fish swim nearby，you can catch them with your hands． When you have tanks（罐子）of air on your back，you can stay in deep water for a long time．But you must be careful． To catch the fish is one of the most interesting parts of this sport．On the other hand， you can clean the ships without taking them out of the water．You can get many things from the deep sea． Now you can see that skin-diving is both useful and interesting．

In either case, you end up feeling low, and want to make up as soon as possible. The only way is to say “sorry”! This is the most precious word in the English language. Read on to find out how to say sorry in the right way. The first thing to remember is not to hide your feelings. Apologize only if you really do feel sorry. Do not lie or give false excuses. Even if it takes the person a long time to respond(回应)，do not let your temper rise, since you cannot expect a person to accept your apology at once. Give your partner time to cool off a bit, and then apologize. It is always better to sort things out quickly. Remember that it does no good to keep arguing about who is right or wrong when tempers are flying. When apologizing, always look the other in the eyes, and stay calm. Do you want to know how to say sorry to a girl? Once you’ve accepted that you’ve make a mistake, meet her in person to apologize. Never say sorry to a girl on the phone. You can say sorry with flowers or with a card. Small gifts are also very effective. It can be difficult to say sorry after a fight. A written apology for an unforgivable mistake, such

The training I received, though excellent, didn't tell me how it was to work with a real student, however. When I began to discover what other people’s lives were like because they could not read, I realized the true importance of reading.
- 32 -
My first student Marie was a 44-year-old single mother of three children. In the first lesson, I found out she walked two miles to the nearest supermarket twice a week because she didn't know which bus to take. When I told her I would get her a bus schedule, she told me it would not help because she couldn't read it. She said she also had difficulty once she got to the supermarket because she couldn't always remember what she needed. Also, she could only recognize items by sight, so if the product had a different label, she would not recognize it as the product she wanted. As we worked together, learning how to read built Marie’s self-confidence. She began to make rapid progress and was even able to take the bus to the supermarket. After this successful trip, she reported how self-confident she felt. At the end of the program, she began helping her youngest son, Tony, a shy first grader, with his reading. I found that helping Marie to build her self-confidence was more rewarding than anything I had ever done before. As a literacy volunteer, I learned a great deal about teaching and helping others. In fact, I may have learned more from the experience than Marie did. 36. What did the writer do last summer? A. She worked in the supermarket. B. She helped someone to learn to read. C. She helped some single mothers. D. She was trained by a literacy volunteer. 37. Why didn't Marie go to the supermarket by bus at first? A. Because she liked to walk to the supermarket. B. Because she didn't have a bus schedule. C. Because she couldn't afford the bus ticket. D. Because she couldn't find the right bus. 38. How did Marie use to find the goods she wanted in the supermarket? A. She knew where the goods were in the supermarket. B. She asked others to take her to the right place. C. She managed to find the goods by their looks. D. She remembered the names of the goods. 39. Which of the statements is TRUE about Marie? A. She could do many things she had not been able to before. B. She was able to read stories with the help of her son. C. She decided to continue her studies in school. D. She helped to build up my self-confidence. B CBC is a famous air company which has over twenty planes carrying passengers and goods, flying along 12 fixed lines all over the world. Its service is very good but some passengers are still not satisfied with it and that is why in 2008 and 2009 the company received letters of complaints from consumers or passengers who pointed out over a dozen kinds of problems which are divided in groups in the following table. Those about passengers’ things carried by the plane are Baggage problems. Consumer service refers to service work which passengers are not satisfied with. Over sales of seats are about the fact that more seats are sold and as a result the plane is too crowded to be safe. Refund（退票）problems appear when passengers fail to receive the money paid back to them because of what they have lost. Fares are problems about the price of tickets.

42. From the passage we can know that _____. A. customers are not satisfied with CBC B. sometimes CBC sells more tickets than its plane’s most desirable seats C. CBC has more than twenty planes which fly to all the capital cities of the world D. customers can only buy tickets with ready money C When we think of leadership, we often think of strength and power. But what are these really, and how do they operate? Leadership today is not about forcing others to do things. If this is even possible, it is short-term. If you order someone to do something against their will, they may do it because they feel they must, but the anger they feel will do more harm in the long-term. They will also experience fear. Fear causes the thinking brain to shut down, making the person unable to function（功能） at his or her best. If they connect you with this emotion of fear, they will become less functional around you, and you will have succeeded in not only shooting yourself in the foot, but possibly making a very good employee or partner unable to perform effectively. Fear has no place in leadership. The way we affect people in a lasting way is by our own character, and our understanding and
- 34 -
use of emotion. We can order someone to do something, which may be part of the work day, or we can employ them at the emotional level, so they become fully devoted to the projects and provide some of their own motivation（积极性）. Today’s work place is all about relationships. Anyone works harder in a positive environment in which they’re recognized and valued as a human being as well as a worker. Everyone produces just a bit more for someone they like. Leaders understand the way things work. They know money is not the only most motivating factor in the work life of most people. The true strength of leadership is an inner strength that comes from the confidence of Emotional Intelligence — knowing your own emotions, and how to deal with them, and those of others. Developing your emotional intelligence is the best thing you can do if you want to develop your relationships with people around you, which is the key to the leadership skills. 43. An employee may have a feeling of fear in the work place when ______. A. he is forced to do things B. he cannot work at his best C. he feels his brain shut down D. he thinks of his work as too heavy 44. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. People like to connect leadership with fear. B. Working conditions affect people’s physical health. C. Good relationship is the key to business success. D. Smart people are more functional in the work place. 45. To positively affect employees, a leader should first of all ______. A. provide better suggestions B. develop his own personality C. give his employees a pay raise D. hide his own emotion of fear 46. Good leadership is mainly seen in a leader’s ability to ______. A. provide a variety of projects for employees B. help raise employees’ living standards C. give employees specific instructions D. deal wisely with employees’ emotions
Most young people enjoy some form of physical activity. It may be walking, cycling, or swimming, or in winter, skating or skiing. It may be game of some kind football, hockey, golf, or tennis. It may be mountaineering. Those who have a passion for climbing high and difficult mountains are often looked upon with astonishment. Why are men and women willing to suffer cold and hardship, and to take risks on high mountains? This astonishment is caused probably by the difference between mountaineering and other forms of activity to which men give their relaxation. Mountaineering is a sport and not a game. There are no man-made rules, as there are for such games as golf and football. There are, of course, rules of a different kind which it would be dangerous to ignore (忽略), but it is this freedom from man-made rules that makes mountaineering attractive to many people. Those who climb mountains are free to use their own methods. If we compare mountaineering and other more familiar sports, we might think that one big difference is that mountaineering is not a “team game”. We should be mistaken in this. There are, it is true, no “matches” between “teams” of climbers, but when climbers are on a rock face linked by a rope on which their lives may depend, there is obviously teamwork. The mountain climber knows that he may have to fight forces that are stronger and more powerful than man. He has to fight the forces of nature. His sport requires high mental and physical qualities. A mountain climber continues to improve in skill year after year. A skier (滑雪者) is probably past his best by the age of thirty, and most international tennis champions are in their early twenties. But it is not unusual for man of fifty or sixty to climb the highest mountains in Alps. They may take more time than younger men, but they probably climb with more skill and less waste of
- 35 -
effort, and they certainly experience equal enjoyment. 47. The main difference between a sport and a game lies in ______. A. activity B. uniform C. rules D. skills 48. Mountaineering can be called a team sport because ______. A. mountaineers depend on each other while climbing B. teams compete against each other C. it is an Olympic event D. there are five climbers on each team 49. Mountaineers compete against ______. A. each other B. nature C. other teams D. international standards 50. Which of the following might be the best title? A. How to Climb High Mountains B. Mountain Climbers C. Challenging Sports Activities D. Mountaineering

It is cooked food that is ready almost as soon as you enter a public eating place. It does not cost much. Most fast food restaurants are chain (连锁) restaurants. That means each one is part of a huge company. Each restaurant in the chain has the same large, colorful sign that can be easy to recognize from far away. Each offers its own carefully limited choice of foods. Each kind of hamburger or piece of chicken tastes the same at every restaurant in the chain. The fast food industry began with two brothers in the nineteen forties. Mac and Dick McDonald owned a small, but very successful restaurant. They sold only a few kinds of simple food, especially hamburgers. People stood outside the restaurant at a window. They told the workers inside what they wanted to eat. They received and paid for their food very quickly. The food came in containers that could be thrown away. The system was so successful that the McDonald brothers discovered they could sell a lot of food and lower their prices. Ray Kroc sold restaurant supplies. He recognized the importance of the McDonald brothers' idea. Kroc paid the McDonald brothers for permission to open several restaurants similar to theirs. He opened the first McDonald's restaurant near Chicago in nineteen fifty-five. Soon, more McDonald's were opening all across the United States. Other people copied the idea and more fast
- 36 -
food restaurants followed. Fast food restaurants spread quickly in the United States because of franchising. Franchising means selling the legal right to operate a store in a company's chain to an independent business person. If the company approves, the business person may buy the store for a period of years. Each restaurant also gives the company about ten percent of the money it earns in sales. Today, over seventy percent of McDonald's restaurants worldwide are owned and operated by independent businessmen and women.

B The United States is one of the few countries in the world that has 3n official day on which fathers are honored by their children. On the third Sunday in June, fathers all across the United States are given presents, treated to dinner or otherwise made to feel special. However, the idea for creating a day for children to honor their fathers began in Spokane, Washington．A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd thought of the idea for Father’s Day while listening to a Mother’ s Day sermon(布道)in 1909. Having been raised by her father, Henry Jackson Smart, after her mother died, Sonora wanted her father to know how special he was to her. It was her father that made all the parental sacrifices(牺牲)and was, in the eyes of his daughter, a selfless and loving man . Sonora’ s father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first Father’s Day celebration in Spokane , Washington on the 19th of June, 1910. In 1 924 President Calvin Coolidge declared the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day . Roses are the Father’ s Day flowers：red to be worn for a living father and white if the father has died. When children can’ t visit their fathers or take them out to dinner, they send a greeting card. Traditionally, fathers prefer greeting cards that are not too sentimental(感伤的). Most greeting cards are too special so fathers laugh when they open them. Some give heartfelt thanks for being there whenever the child needed Dad. 40. The United States is special in Father’s Day because . A. many people celebrate the day B. only America celebrates the day C. America makes it an official day D. all men are honored in America 41.

How many years has passed before Father’s Day became an official day since the father’s day was celebrated? A. 4. B. 10. C. 14. D. 24. 43. According to the passage, we can infer that Henry Jackson Smart . A. was very kind to anyone B. did a lot for his daughter C. was the first father honored in 1924 D. always help others by giving money C In 1939 two brothers, Mac and Dick McDonald, started a drive-in restaurant in San Bernadino, California. They carefully chose a busy corner for their location. They had run their own businesses for years, first a theater, then a barbecue（烤肉）restaurant, then another drive-in. But in their new operation, they offered a new, shortened menu: French fries, hamburgers, and sodas. To this small selection they added one new idea: quick service, no waiters or waitresses, and no tips. Their hamburgers sold for fifteen cents. Cheese was another four cents. Their French fries and hamburgers had a remarkable uniformity（一致性）,for the brothers had developed a strict routine （程序） for the preparation of their food, and they insisted on their cooks’ sticking to their routine .Their new drive-in became surprisingly popular, particularly for lunch. People drove up by the hundreds during the busy noontime. The self-service restaurant was so popular that the brothers had allowed ten copies of their restaurant to be opened.

Many people find good friends but they fail to continue with their friendship, because they do not know their role as a friend. Let us see some important points that we should take care of if we wish to be a good friend for someone. Be a secret admirer(崇拜者) of your friend: If your friend is good at something, then do not praise him just in front of him. Praising a person for what he is good at does not improve his qualities. It surely will do harm to your friend. A good friend should never miss an opportunity to praise his friend in front of others when he is not around. Pull your friend away from making mistakes: If your friend is doing something wrong, it is your duty to let him know it at earliest. Keep in mind a best friend has to play a role of critic( 批评家) if he wants his friend to stop doing wrong things. But keep in mind not to show your friend’s mistakes in front of other people. It will spoil（损害）your friend’s image in others’ view. And besides your friendship will be in danger. Sometimes it is important to understand your friend’s intentions( 意图) behind his actions and try to analyze (分析) situation, then only you should give your opinion. Try to understand your friend: It is always important to understand what your friend is worried about or what problems he is facing. Always try to understand the situation your friend is in and try to calm him. It is obvious （明显的） that if people have some problems, they will not speak up their problems to their brothers or sisters, they will instead tell everything to their friends. Let your friend speak up, just listen to him and be with him until your friend feels better. Try to teach good things: If you are a true friend, you should never give your hungry friend a fish, instead, you should teach him how to fish. This will give your friend food for lifetime. A good friend will never wish his friend to be dependent on someone. Do not interfere(妨碍): The most important point that one should take care of is that your friend has his own life and you should not interfere in his life. You have a right to tell your friend what is good and what is bad, but you do not have a right to make someone do what you wish. Hope this will help you out solve some of your problems you are facing in friendship. Tips for 71 Good Relationship Key points Know your 72 as a friend Be a secret admirer of your Don’t think highly of your friend when he is around, which surely friend will be 73 to him. Point out your friends’ mistake When finding your friend is doing something wrong, you’d better as 74 as possible. let him know it but 75 not to do that in front of others. Try to 76 your friend When your friend has something to worry about or has problems, let him speak up and listen to him. Try to keep him 77 . Teach your friend the 78 to solve problems.
