【英语卷?2014 届江苏省徐州市第一中学（徐州市）高三考前模拟（201405） 】C2 D DAVID Beckham didn’t make it. Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t hit it so big either. But Gareth Bale, 24, has become the most expensive socc
er player in the history of the game. Four years after the arrival of Ronaldo at a record cost of $125 million (765 million yuan) in 2009, Real Madrid is expected to pay $135 million for Bale. But how is it that Bale, who was playing left back and being benched (当替补) by his English Premier League team a couple of years ago, now attracts such a big deal? As of years ago, the Welshman had played 24 matches for Tottenham Hotspur, and had never finished on the winning side once – a record for any Premier League player. Tottenham even privately considered selling him. “A player who had once looked a prodigy (神童) – as a 17-year-old Southampton full back, the youngest ever international for Wales – already appeared, at 20, on the way down,” wrote Tim Adams at UK’s The Observer. Through all the humiliations (屈辱), Bale hung on. While he was injured and kept out of games, he worked hard to reinvent himself. Bale’s father Frank’s uncompromising (不妥协的) discipline had a great impact on his son. When he returned from injury later that season, Bale had been transformed in the gym. In a Champions League match in 2010, he established himself as the so-called “Incredi-Bale” overnight throughout Europe. With his team four goals behind to Inter Milan at halftime, Bale surprisingly scored a hat-trick before the game was over. Even former Manchester United coach, Alex Ferguson, praised him: “He had been a six-foot, gangly (瘦长的), slim boy; then all of a sudden he was built like a light heavyweight boxer.” With Bale’s help, Tottenham are flying high in the league. In the 2012-13 season, he won all three of the important individual awards: the PFA (Professional Footballers’ Association) Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards and the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award. This has all led to people comparing him to Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Ronaldo, who are widely regarded as the two best players in the world. Former Madrid star Zinedine Zidane has even decided to mentor (指导) Bale. “He’s perhaps not quite at the level of the other two, but he’s different,” Zidane told ESPN. “So personally I don’t think he’s far off.” 56. According to the text, which of the following is true? A. Gareth Bale played full back for Southampton at the age of 17. B. Tottenham Hotspur never considered selling Gareth Bale. C. Tottenham Hotspur beat Inter Milan in a Champions League match. D. Gareth Bale won all three of the important individual awards in life. 57. What plays the most critical role in Bale’s successful career? A. His natural talent for soccer. B. His father’s discipline and impact. C. His determination and hard work. D. His coaches’ effective guidance. 58. From the passage we can infer that Bale lost 24 matches for Tottenham Hotspur _________. A. before 17 years old B. between 17 and 20 years old C. after 20 years old D. at the age of 24

It killed me inside knowing that their marriage was over, and there was nothing that could be done to save it. I knew one had to go, and I knew who it would be. My mother started drinking when I was 2 years old. She would leave the house late at night and not return until the next morning. I knew my father was hurting inside, and I felt his pain too. He had to do something about that, because her problems were beginning to change our lives. I watched her walk out that night, not realizing what was happening to our family. It didn’t occur to me that I would not see her again for almost two years. That day changed my life in more ways than I can say. I had looked up to and counted on her --and now she was gone. I believe she was perfect in every way, and hoped to be just like her. After a while, though, I began to see just who she really was. The court gave my father full custody(监护) of my brother and me; my mother had no visitation right. It was two years before she was allowed to see us. That first Saturday visit came and went --- she didn’t arrive. She had her chance and blew it, which hurt me more than anything. I fell into a serious depression. I sat in my room and did not sleep, eat, talk or do anything but cry for six months. Then she was given another chance to see us. This time she came, but she was completely drunk. She was violent and out of control; she refused to leave. My father had to call the police to remove her. After that visit, my mother decided to try to sort herself out. She began attending Alcoholics Anonymous(嗜酒者互戒会). It was difficult for her in the beginning, and she was in and out of the program constantly. Finally, she decided to give it her all; she went on with the program and became stronger every day for her and for us. My mother has been sober for 10 years. Even though my parents are no longer together, I feel
very lucky and thankful that I have my mother in my life again. She is the same woman now that I used to know and love --- an amazing person. I have learned from her mistakes and that will help me in the future to be a better person. There is hope for everyone --- if you give it your all and believe in yourself, anything can happen. 21. From the writer’s reaction after the first Saturday visit, we can conclude that __________. A. she was disappointed in her mother’s method of dealing with drinking B. she had expected her mother to come and return to her old self C. she no longer expect her mother to change D. she had a clear idea of who her mother really was 22. Which of the following is TRUE according to the text? A. The writer had her mother go home in the end. B. The writer’s mother could hardly win her respect again. C. The writer drew strength from the fact that her mother finally pulled through. D. After the second visit, the writer’s mother continued attending Alcoholics Anonymous all the time. 23. The underlined word “sober” in the last paragraph is closest in meaning to “__________”. A. not drunk B. not calm C. single D. healthy 24. Which is the best title for the passage? A. Drinking Drives Mother Away, Love Draws her Back B. The Reunion of a Ruined Family C. Believe in Your Family and Yourself D. Medical and Psychological Dangers of Drinking

【英语卷·2014 届黑龙江省大庆铁人中学高三考前模拟冲刺（201405） 解析】C2 A It was a cold night in Washington, D.C. and I was heading back to the hotel when a beggar walked up to me. He asked if I would give him some money so he could get something to eat. After a short hesitation, I shook my head and kept walking. With helplessness, he said, “I really am homeless and I really am hungry! You can come with me and watch me eat!” But still, I kept on walking. The incident bothered me for the rest of the week. In fact, I had money in my pocket and it wouldn’t have killed me to hand over a dollar or two even if he had been lying. On a freezing cold night, I wondered what would happen to a hungry man. Flying back to my hometown, Anchorage, I couldn’t help thinking of him. I tried to find excuses for my failure to help. After all, government agencies, churches and charities were there to feed him. Besides, you’re not supposed to give money to beggars. But I just couldn’t forget the incident and began to think I must do something. At that time, I was writing a garden column(专栏) for the local Daily News. Suddenly, I came up with an idea. Why not try to get all my readers to plant one row in their gardens donated to Bean’s? Bean’s Cafe, the soup kitchen which has volunteered to feed hundreds of hungry people every day for many years. The idea began to take off. I began to receive more e-mails and calls from kind people. They tried their best to show their concerns about the hungry. Food was sent by different warm-hearted people and even those who only grew flowers sent their flowers. They are food for the spirit, which comforted me a lot. Next year, the Garden Writers Association of America held their annual conference in Anchorage and after learning of Anchorage’s program, Plant a Row for Bean’s became Plant a Row for the Hungry. You can imagine how happy I was then. 21. According to the passage, the reason why the author refused to give some money to the beggar probably is that ________. A. he happened not to take money then B. he wasn’t fond of beggars C. he thought that the beggar was lying D. he didn’t like being bothered 22. Why did the author can’t help thinking of the beggar ? A. Because he felt he had done wrong for his failure to help him. B. Because he wanted to know whether the beggar had lied to him. C. Because he was worried that the beggar might die from hunger. D. Because some agencies, churches and charities should help the beggar. 23. What does the underlined phrase “take off” in Paragraph 5 mean? A. remove clothes. B. leave suddenly. C. become successful. D. come into being. 24. What’s the correct order to record the author’s launch of the program “Plant a Row for the Hungry?” ① He ran into a beggar. ② He was regretful. ③ He came up with the idea of planting a row for Bean’s. ④ The Plant a Row for Bean's became Plant a Row for the Hungry. ⑤ He went back home.
⑥ Writers gathered in Anchorage. A. ①②③④⑤⑥. B. ①⑤②③④⑥. C. ①②⑤③④⑥. D. ①②⑤③⑥④. 解析： 21.选 C。细节题。根据第二段中 if he had been lying.可知，作者是不相信这个乞丐。 22.选 A。细节题。根据第二、三、特别是第四段中 He began to think he must do something 可以判断作者感觉自己做错了，故选 A。 23.选 C。词意猜测题。根据下文 I began to receive more e-mails and calls from kind people. 可知作者收到了很多善意的邮件和电话，再结合选项判断，只能选 C。 24.选 D。细节题。仔细比对原文与选项，本题不难，但需耐心。

【英语卷 （解析） · 2014届湖北省襄阳五中、 钟祥一中、 夷陵中学三校高三五月联考 （201405） 】 C2 A “I want to be just like you. You are from uptown, aren’t you?” the young man asked in the local slang with a broad smile unaware of the burning tropical sun. Selling bags of potatoes at the roadside, his extra-large T shirt and faded blue jeans were a proof to the universal influence of American pop culture in Africa. I had accepted a seat at his potato stand to take a break before concluding business in Accra that afternoon. Between busy sales serving customers stuck in traffic, he asked numerous questions about life in America, convinced that having a visa to the United States was like winning the lottery (彩票). How could I tell him that I envied his simple life and childish innocence when I was guilty of the silent culture that has helped to create a false image of Africans living abroad? Outwardly, I looked like the poster boy for success visiting from the United States. My white designer shirt and matching pants were straight from the shopping malls in Detroit, where I worked as an engineer. Inwardly, I was caught in a web of ambition and cultural disappointment. My clothes suggested wealthy, yet I could not afford the numerous requests for money or to make gifts of my belongings. Uncles and aunties who were prepared to mortgage (作贷款抵押) their homes to help me leave 10 years ago now expected me to finance cousins hoping to make the same move to the United States.
America had helped me achieve my ambition for furthering my education and professional experience. I had arrived with a high-school diploma, and after 10 years, I hold a graduate degree and have a relatively successful professional career. Every inch of progress, however, had been achieved through exhausting battles. My college education had been financed partly through working multiple minimum-wage jobs. I was fortunate to secure a job upon graduation, but adjusting to corporate culture made me pay another high price. Initially, I found myself putting in twice the effort just to keep up. Scared by a wave of layoffs, I went to graduate school part time because it was the only way I knew that afforded me an edge in job security. It was as though I had run 10 continuous marathons, one for each year abroad, and my body screamed for rest. 51. In the eyes of the young potato seller, the author seemed _____. A. to be a successful man B. to have won a lottery C. to represent American culture D. to know a lot about the U.S. 52. At the bottom of his heart, the author feels that _____. A. he wants to exchange places with the young seller B. he is sorry for his cousins still living in Africa C. his American dream has come true D. he is torn between the two cultures 53. The author managed to attend a graduate school because _____. A. studying graduate courses helped him adapt well to the life in the company B. a graduate degree was the minimum requirement for his career C. a graduate degree would give him an advantage over others in the job market D. he wanted to settle permanently in the U.S 54. Which of the following is closest to the main idea of the passage? A. An immigrant was accepted by the society after ten years of struggle. B. An African American returned home with fame and fortune. C. An immigrant returned home with an exhausted heart. D. A young African was climbing to the top of his career. 【答案】 51. A。 解析：细节题。根据第一段“I want to be just like you.

【英语卷（解析） ·2014 届江西省师大附中高三三模考试（201405） 】C2 D I was in a rush as always, but this time it was for an important date I just couldn’ t be late for! I found myself at a checkout counter behind an elderly woman seemingly in no hurry as she paid for her groceries. A PhD student with not a lot of money, I had hurried into the store to pick up some flowers. I was in a huge rush, thinking of my upcoming evening. I did not want to be late for this date.
We were in Boston, a place not always known for small conversation between strangers. The woman stopped unloading her basket and looked up at me. She smiled. It was a nice smile —warm and reassuring — and I returned her gift by smiling back. “Must be a special lady, whoever it is that will be getting those beautiful flowers，” she said. “Yes, she’ s special，” I said, and then to my embarrassment, the words kept coming out. “It’ s only our second date， but somehow I am just having the feeling she’s ‘the one’ ， ”Jokingly, I added, “The only problem is that I can’ t figure out why she’ d want to date a guy like me.” “Well, I think she’s very lucky to have a boyfriend who brings her such lovely flowers and who is obviously in love with her， ” the woman said. “My husband used to bring me flowers every week — even when times were tough and we didn’ t have much money. Those were incredible days; he was very romantic and — of course — I miss him since he’ s passed away.” I paid for my flowers as she was gathering up her groceries. There was no doubt in my mind as I walked up to her. I touched her on the shoulder and said, “You were right, you know. These flowers are indeed for a very special lady.” I handed her the flowers and thanked her for such a nice conversation. It took her a moment to realize that I was giving her the flowers I had just purchased.“You have a wonderful evening，”I said. I left her with a big smile and my heart warmed as I saw her smelling the beautiful flowers. I remember being slightly late for my date that night and telling my girlfriend the above story. A couple of years later，when I finally worked up the courage to ask her to marry me，she told me that this story had helped to seal it for her — that was the night that I won her heart. 71．Why was the writer in a hurry that day?

I had little money and had only been able to afford to stay with my Aunt Rosa in Spain. So, I wasn’t really excited as I knew exactly what it was going to be like: lots of noisy cousins, and Aunt Rosa begging me to take her for a ride. After I had checked in, I made my way slowly to the departure gate. As I was waiting to board the plane, I kept thinking about my ideal holiday destination: Jamaica, with its long, sandy beaches and crystal clear water. As soon as the plane took off, I fell fast asleep and only woke to the sound of the announcement: “Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seat belts, as we will shortly be landing in Kingston.” I froze in my seat. Was I dreaming? Kingston? Jamaica? I had boarded the wrong plane! Immediately after the plane landed, I explained the situation to the authorities. It seems there were also three other passengers heading for Spain. Apparently it had been the airline’s fault, since the flight numbers for Spain and Jamaica were exactly the same! Therefore, with no flight back to London for a week, the airline had no choice but to pay for our stay. So there I was, lying on the beach, enjoying the music and the marvelous food of Jamaica! As for Aunt Rosa, I suppose she just had to live without me! 21. Why did the writer choose to spend her holiday with her aunt in Spain? A. She missed her cousins very much. B. She could hardly afford any better trip. C. Her aunt begged her to go there. D. Spain was her ideal destination. 22. In the text, the writer ended up _________. A. flying to London immediately

He appears along a downtown street, seemingly out of nowhere. We sometimes want to know where he sleeps at night. A few weeks ago he boarded the bus. A few stops later, a young woman boarded. She swiped (刷) her bus-card, only to find the machine would not accept it. The driver told her to pay the $2.25 fare. “I just bought this card,” she said. “I paid the money...” The driver said she could take the card back to the sales office and explain the problem. In the meantime she would have to pay the fare for that day. The woman became confused and distressed. The rest of us just watched, wondering how the problem would be solved. Suddenly the man rose from his seat, dropped a few coins into the fare box. “You’re lucky,” the bus driver said quietly. “He paid for you.” Silence fell over the bus.

【英语卷（解析） ·2014 届广东省中山一中高三高考热身试题（201405） 】C2 A In October 2010, I left my hometown and family in Virginia and moved to Iowa so I could be coached by Liang Chow. I'd been dreaming of an Olympic gold medal since I was eight — but gradually, that dream seemed like a million miles away. On January 2, 2012, while Mom was visiting me in Iowa, I told her, “I don't like gymnastics any more. I want to try dancing, or become a singer. I can get a job in Virginia. I just want to come home.” Mom's eyes narrowed and her expression turned to stone. “You're breaking my heart, Brie,” she said. “You've been doing gymnastics for ten years, and now you want to quit? Have you lost your mind?” I hadn't lost my mind, but I had lost my fire. It's an entirely different thing to push toward that dream when you feel alone. “I'm not trying to break your heart, Mom,” I said. “I just don't want to do it any more.” “I know you miss home. But you've signed a contract that says you will represent your country to the best of your ability. You've got a responsibility to your teammates. And now you just want to walk away? I will not let you be dishonorable. If you don't like gymnastics, then at the very least, you will finish the season.”
The next afternoon as I dragged myself into Chow's gym, I thought of the efforts Mom had made in order to pay for my training. I thought of my two sisters: Arielle, who gave up ballroom dancing, and Joyelle, who stopped ice skating so that our single mom could afford to keep me in gymnastics. For now, here's what you need to know: Exactly 210 days before I ever attempted my first vault (跳跃) in the London Summer Olympics, my leap of faith came this close to ending in a crash of disaster. 26. The author wanted to give up gymnastics because _____. A. she thought she loved music more B. she was overcome with homesickness C. an Olympic gold was beyond her reach D. the training for the Olympics was too hard 27. How did the author's mother feel on hearing her words? A. Heart-broken. B. Sympathetic. C. Helpless. D. Calm.
28. We can infer from the passage that the author _____. A. was born into an athletic family C. changed her mind in the end B. realized her Olympic dream D. had a bad childhood

【英语卷（解析） ·2014 届山东省实验中学高三第三次模拟考试（201405） 】C2 B I decided a few months ago that I was going to treat myself to a 4-day getaway from Los Angeles and visit Chicago. I got a free airplane ticket, but had to pay the hotel in cash, which 1 really couldn't afford. I found a travel website where a discounted 3-night stay was purchased from a recently opened hotel. About three weeks before the trip, I had to regretfully cancel and only then realized the room, while transferable (可转手的) to another person, couldn't be changed to a later date and wasn't refundable. For the next two weeks I tried selling it on Craig's list with no success. Five days before the "big weekend", I gave up trying to get any money back and decided I'd contact some acquaintances who live in Chicago and offer someone a free "staycation". After trying a handful of people all of whom already had their own plans,Iwas determined to have the room not go to waste. That's when it suddenly occurred to me that I was looking at the rooms in the wrong way. Instead of viewing them for vacation purposes, surely there must be a way to put them to good use, and that was when the idea that some sort of shelter might be able to use it. I eventually found one whose focus is aiding victims of domestic violence. This particular one was willing to listen to my out-of-left-field story and made it easier to transfer the rooms. The shelter was working with a desperate woman and her daughter, who were fortunately able to make use of the room. I was later told by the shelter "they had a blast". 46. We can learn from paragraph 1 that the author______. A. planed to go on business in Chicago B. bought his flight using credit cards C. had alight budget for his holiday D. employed someone from a website 47. What happened to his plan three weeks before the trip? A. The room reservation was canceled. B. The author couldn't make the trip. C. The hotel was no longer available. D. The author regretted making the plan. 48. What was the author's first choice when he realized the situation? A. Getting his money back. B. Doing a favor to a friend. C. Complaining to authority. D. Making the trip himself. 49. What did the author finally do with his room reservation? A. He sold it to someone on vacation. B. He used it for domestic violence. C. He put it off to a later holiday time. D. He donated it to needy strangers. 50. From the underlined sentence in the last paragraph, we can infer that______. A. the women were grateful for the room B. the program was shocked by the event C. the shelter was asking for more rooms D. the author was unhappy with the result 解析： 46.选 C，根据第一段中得 free ticket 、can’t afford、discount 等关键词可以判断作者经济拮据， 所以打只能选 C 了。作者计划了一场经济的旅程。 47.选 B，根据第二段，作者又是想退房，又是想转手，这当然是说明：他的旅程不能成行了。 48.选 A。根据第二段第二句话可知作者是想退钱。
49.选 D。根据文章最后一段可知，他是把房间给了有需要的人。 50.选 A。
【吉林省吉林市 2014 届高三下学期第二次模拟考试 英语（2014 吉林二模） 】C2 C Five years ago, David Smith wore an expensive suit to work every day. “I was a clothes addict.” he jokes. “I used to carry a fresh suit to work with me so I could change if my clothes got wrinkled.” Today David wears casual clothes—khaki pants and a sports shirt—to the office. He hardly ever wears a necktie. “I am working harder than ever.” David says, “and I need to feel comfortable.” More and more companies are allowing their office workers to wear casual clothes to work. In the United States, the change from formal to casual office wear has been gradual. In the early 1990s, many companies allowed their employees to wear casual clothes on Friday（but only on Friday）. This became known as “dress-down Friday” or “casual Friday”. “What started out as an extra one-day-a-week benefit for employees has really become an everyday thing.” said business consultant Maisly Jones. Why have so many companies started allowing their employees to wear casual clothes? One reason is that it’s easier for a company to attract new employees if it has a casual dress code.” “A lot of young people don’t want to dress up for work,” says the owner of a software company, “so it’s hard to hire people if you have a conservative （保守的） dress code.” Another reason is that people seem happier and more productive when they are wearing comfortable clothes. In a study conducted by Levi Strauss and Company, 85 percent of employers said that they believe that casual dress improves employee morale （心境， 士气） . Only 4 percent of employers said that casual dress has a negative influence on productivity. Supporters of casual office wear also argue that a casual dress code helps them save money. “Suits are expensive, if you have to wear one every day,” one person said. “For the same amount of money, you can buy a lot more casual clothes.” 21. David Smith refers to himself as having been “a clothes addict,” because ________. A. he often wore khaki pants and a sports shirt B. he couldn’t stand a clean appearance C. he wanted his clothes to look neat all the time D. he didn’t want to spend much money on clothes 【知识点】细节理解题。 【答案解析】C. 由第一段第二行可知。“I was a clothes addict.” he jokes. “I used to carry a fresh suit to work with me so I could change if my clothes got wrinkled. 22. David Smith wears casual clothes now, because__________. A. they make him feel at ease when working B. he cannot afford to buy expensive clothes C. he looks handsome in casual clothes D. he no longer works for any company 【知识点】细节理解题。 【答案解析】A 从第一段最后一行 David 所说的话中可知。
23. In this passage, the following advantages of casual office wear are mentioned EXCEPT __________. A. saving employees’ money B. making employees more attractive C. improving employees’ motivation D. making employees happier 【知识点】细节理解题。 【答案解析】B One reason is that it’s easier for a company to attract new employees if it has a casual dress code.”其它三个选项在最后一段都有提及。

But that night she had a dream… She found herself in a large cave, surrounded by gray bundles (包袱) of all shapes and sizes. Walking toward her was a woman with flowing long white hair. “Who are you?” asked the dreamer, “and what is this place?” “This is the cave of bundles of troubles and I am the keeper of the cave.” “Bundles of troubles?” “Yes,” the keeper explained, “each person who walks on the earth carries a bundle of troubles on their left shoulder.” The dreamer turned to look and there was a gray bundle on her left shoulder—it had been there all the time and she never noticed! “If you wish,” the keeper continued,” you can take your bundle down and exchange it for another.” “Really?” The woman lowered the bundle from her left shoulder. Oh, it felt so good to put it down. Then she picked up a beautiful bundle.

【英语卷·2014 届江西省师大附中、鹰潭一中高三 5 月联考（201405） 解析】C2 A As a boy growing up in India, I had longed to travel abroad. I used to listen to the stories my father would tell me about his stay in Canada and tours to Europe in the 1970s, with great interest. My big moment finally came in the summer of 1998 when I was able to accompany my parents to Europe, where my father was to attend a meeting. We planned to travel to Belgium, Netherlands and West Germany. I have clear memories even today of going to Mumbai airport at night all excited about finally going abroad. I had heard several great things about Lufthansa till then but now I finally got to experience them first hand, during the flight to Frankfurt. We flew business class and even today I can remember the excellent service by the Lufthansa crew （工作人员）. The flight was really smooth and thoroughly enjoyable, even for someone like me, who is especially afraid of flying. After spending almost two weeks in Europe, we took the Lufthansa airport express from Dusseldorf to Frankfurt airport, for our return flight. What a journey that was! All along the Rhine (莱茵河), it was simply an unforgettable experience.
