Miss Yamada, whose plane could cover eight hundred kilometers an hour, flew around the world in less than fifty hours. The newest planes could go 600 miles (one mile equals 1.609 kilometers) every sixty minutes, and we are now developing planes that are even faster. .. But it used to take a lot longer to go around the world. Magellan's men were the first to make the trip. It took them more than two years to do so by ship Magellan was from Portugal, but he sailed for the king of Spain. On September 20, 1519, he left Spain with five ships and 240 men. After passing the tip of South America, they reached the Pacific Ocean, on which they sailed more than one year. Very often they could not see a piece of land for months and they suffered greatly from the lack of food and fresh water. Many of them died of hunger and diseases. They even had to live on sawdust（锯末）．Finally in April 1521, Magellan got to the Philippine Islands, where he was killed. His men fled and continued their voyage across the Indian Ocean. It
was with the greatest difficulty that they passed the Cape of Good Hope. By the time they returned to Spain on December 21, 1521, seven out of every eight men had died. Magellan's voyage pr6ved that men could sail around the world and that our earth is but a huge ball. 56.Miss Yamada could fly round the world in less than fifty hours because ________________. A. B.

After a few years of starting stories but never finishing them, Flavia Bujor decided it was time for her to complete something. So, she decided to write a novel------at the age of 12. She was 14 when the book was published "Writing was a passion (激情) for me since I was very young," said Bujor , now 15 Bujor, who lives in Paris, was in New York last week for the American release（发行）of her book, The Prophecy of the Stones. It's the story of a young girl who imagines another world where three heroines band together with the help of some magical stones to save their land The book has made it onto best-seller lists in Europe. More than 20 publishers elsewhere in the world have bought the rights to publish it. Success comes as a surprise to Bujor, who wrote the book just to see if she could. She would write a chapter and then hand the work to her family and friends to see if they liked it and thought she could continue. "For me it's like a dream," said Bujor, a soft-spoken, slender, tall young woman with long brown hair. “I really didn't think it was possible to publish it.”
The Prophecy of the Stones caught the attention of a French publishing
house when a family friend sent in some pages Bujor had mailed to him for his opinion. Since then, the novel has sold 20,000 copies in France and Italy,. and more than 30,000 in Germany. In the United States, the first print run is 65,000 copies. Bujor doesn't want to be seen only as a young adult author. She's already at work on her second novel, which she says will be nothing like her first. Different, but also determined to be a normal teenager. That means promotional (促销)tours only during school holidays, continuing her schooling, and going on with plans to attend university . Her book royalties(版税)will be used to pay for that. 60. The reason why Bujor takes her success as a surprise is most probably that_______________. A. she didn't expect too much of her novel
B. she thinks the book is overvalued． C. her book is only an interesting story D. she didn't write the book with enough passion 61.. How did a French publishing house get to know about her novel? A. She had a family friend working in the publishing house. ． B. A family friend recommended the novel to the publishing house. C. She mailed some pages of the book to the publishing for their opinion.. D. The passage doesn't mention this. 62. What is the most important proof the writer of the passage provides for Bujor’s success? A. The age at which she began writing. B. The numbers of copies sold. C. Her skills of writing. D. Her passion for writing . 63. Which of the following is true of Bujor's second book? A. It will be a continued part to her first novel. B. It will tell a different story of the same type as the first one. C. She is no longer writing it with passion. D. She doesn't want her second book a twin of the first
C Scientists have discovered an unusual tip for parents who want their kids to grow up to be. musical geniuses(天才)-----teach them Chinese Putonghua Experts at the University of California in San Diego have found that children who learn Chinese Putonghua as babies are far more likely to have perfect pitch. That's the ability to name or sing a musical note at will They're better than those raised to speak English. Perfect pitch , though common among the great composers, extremely rare in Europe and the US. Just one in 10,000 there is thought to have the skill.
Diana Deutsch, who led the research , believes the explanation lies in the different use of tones in the two languages. The meaning of English words does not change with tone; the same is not true for Chinese Putonghua. Deutsch discovered the connection when she tested the first year students from the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. All of them., spoke Chinese Putonghua . She also tested students at the Eastman School of Music in New York, who all spoke English. Each of the students was asked to name 36 notes played at random〔随 机〕from a keyboard The researchers found that of the students who began music lessons between the ages of four and five, 14 per cent of Americans had perfect pitch. That was compared with 60 per cent of Chinese. When children began music lessons later in life, then chances of having perfect pitch dropped dramatically "The findings support the idea that babies can acquire (获得) perfect pitch as part of learning a language, which can later generalize to musical tones," said, Deutsch. But while learning Chinese Putonghua appears to give children a better chance of developing perfect pitch, some parents might appreciate a simpler method.。 A good alternative (另一选择)，Deutsch said, might be to let babies play with keyboards with different notes labeled or colored. As with language, learning perfect pitch' is likely to be easier around the ages of 6 to 18 months. The British composer Michael Berkeley said, "If you are using a language where pitch is so much more important, your whole perception（感 觉）of pitch would be more accurate. The musicality of a language does make it easier to understand pitch.”
64. Which of the following best reflects the main idea of the passage? A. Chinese Putonghua, a language to be learned by musicians B. Musical Chinese Putonghua C. Chinese music and US music D. Perception of pitch 65. What does the word "pitch" in the passage most probably mean?
A. .A set of keys on the keyboard. B . A group of high notes in music. C. A set of roles of music. D. The ability to play or sing a note correctly. 66. .The reason why Chinese children acquire better pitch is that ____________. A. they speak a language more related to music B. their parents aim higher for their music talent. C. they began music lessons earlier D. Chinese is a language more difficult to learn than English. 67. Which of the following are effective ways to give children better chances of developing perfect pitch? (al Teach them Chinese Putonghua (b) Have them play with keyboards with different notes labeled or colored. (c) Let them learn English early (d) Let them start music lessons early. (e) Let them notice the different use of tones jn English A.（a），(b), (d). (e). B. (a), (c), (d). C. (b), (d), (e). D. (b),（c）,

Cellist Kotova's photo can be seen on the covers of many fashion magazines D. Yang Jing , the pips player, accepts no western influence in her performance E Language is a major problem for the European Union (EU). The agreement
or treaty（条约）which created the organization that eventually became the EU, the Treaty of Rome, stated that each country's language must be treated equally. The original (原来的)six countries had only three languages between them: French, German and Dutch/Flemish. However, there are now15 countries in the EU, with a total of 12 languages. EU documents must be translated into all these languages , and at official meetings the speeches must be translated into all the languages by interpreters . All this translating is very expensive and time-consuming(费时的). It is said that nearly half of all employees of the EU am engaged in translating documents and speeches, and nearly half of the EU's administrative(管理方面的)costs are spent on this task. In the near future it is probable that several more countries, most of them having their own languages, will join the EU, thus making the situation even worse. The problem is not just cost; there are practical difficulties as well . With 12 languages, there are 132 possible "translation situations" that might be needed. It is often difficult to find people in the right place at the right time who can translate from (for example) Danish into Greek, or Dutch into Portuguese, at a high professional standard.
In practice the problem has been made less severe by the use of English in many contacts (接 触)between EU officials, since almost all of them speak some English.. However, any move to reduce the number of official languages (perhaps to four or five) would be a blow to the pride of the smaller countries. Another commonly suggested solution is to make English the official language for all EU business. However, this is strongly resisted by powerful member countries like France and Germany. 71. The organization that eventually became the EU______________. A. was started by France and Germany B. started with three countries C. was set up by the Treaty of Rome D. included 132 languages 72. What's the main purpose of this passage? A. To give a solution to a problem. B. To find out a problem and show how severe it is. C. To criticize the European Union for inefficiency. D. To show that the problem cannot be solved. 73. According to the writer, the use of English in contacts among EU officials has____________. A. angered the officials who don't speak English B. reduced the number of official languages C. lessened the effect of the problem D. been opposed by powerful member countries 74. The writer mentions "Danish into Greek" as an example of________________. A. a situation that might be difficult to deal with B. a situation that occurs often C. one of the 12 situations that requires an interpreter D. languages easily being interpreted 75. The writer suggests that if the number of official languages was reduced ______________.
A. the EU would not know which official languages to choose B. countries whose languages were not used officially would be unhappy C. only languages which are easy to translate would be used officially D. the smaller member countries would be pleased

I love her and I do well in my studies, but I still feel a little afraid of her because she loses her temper easily. I don’t know how to communicate with her.
