The match started a few minutes after we entered the restaurant. As I was eating my meal, a loud noise came from the television. Surprised, I looked up at the TV ： “ Why is that man jumping up and down?” Dad patiently explained： "That ? s Papa Bouba Diop ，my son. It' s normal for them to jump up and down after they?ve scored. ” Dad explained almost everything to me. His monosyllabic (单音节的） answers were a thing of the past. I loved the new Dad！I watched the rest of the match, becoming more and more interested. When I told my father that I planned to watch more matches with him, he smiled and gave me a wink ( 眨眼）?At long last we had something in common.

S. newspaper websites rose by nearly a third in the first half of 2006，a study released on Wednesday said，though print readership at some larger papers fell. The study, released by the Newspaper Association of America, underlines the internet' s importance to papers beset (围困) b y failing circulation and advertising income in their print editions. The average number of unique visitors to online newspaper sites in the first half was more than 55.5 million a month ，the study said. That compares with 42.2 million a year earlier. “Newspaper websites have become a significant addition to the print product, and are driving large audience growth, ” said John Kimball9 the association ? s chief marketing officer. The number of page views at newspaper sites rose by about 52 percent in the first half, the association added. US Newspaper publishers have been fighting to hold on to advertisers as many of them lose readers to other media, including the Internet, Key to the latest report is the finding that websites are bringing in more younger readers, the association said. The Washington Post, s website increased its audience reach among readers aged 25 to 34 by more than 60 percent, the report said. Audience reach^combines the average weekly print audience and the net 30 - day website audience. Overall, newspaper websites helped drive a 15 percent increase in the total newspaper audience for 25 - to - 34 - year olds and a 10 - percent increase for 18 - to 24 - year olds, the association said. It did not provide comparisons to the same period last year for total print newspaper readership. Readership numbers, which were provided by Scarborough Research, include circulation, shared copies and any other way that someone could end up reading a newspaper. Print readership fell, according to a comparison of figures from the two periods conducted by

wildfires, scientists from the University of Arizona in Tucson looked at weather, snow, and fire records from 1970 to 2003. ^
Their study showed that, between 1987 and 2003, fires burned an area 6. 5 times larger than the area burned between 1970 and 1986. The fire season also started earlier-, and its average length increased by 78 days. Warmer spring and summer temperatures appear to be part of the explanation for this change. The average temperature in the study's more recent period was 0.871 higher than it was in the earlier period. And this trend is likely to continue. Experts predict that average summer temperatures may rise between 2? and 5? by the year 2050 in western North America.? Hie timing of snowmelt appears to be another cause of the fire boom. When snow melts early in the season，forests become drier through the summer and catch fire and burn more easily. Western snow packs now typically melt a week to a month earlier than they did 50 years ago, according to recent studies. Some people have blamed the growing fire risk on policies that allow bush and branches to build up on forest floors. But clearing bush by itself won' t help much if changes in climate are largely responsible for increasingly severe forest fires. 43. The main purpose of studying the records from 1970 to 2003 was to ______. A. find out solutions to forest fires B. prevent wildfires from happening frequently -
C. know more about the climate changes in the past decades D. find out the causes of wildfires in the northern Rocky Mountains region 44. Scientists fix>m the University of Arizona found out the following EXCEPT ______ A. western snow packs melt earlier than they did 50 years ago B. fires burned larger area between 1987.and 2003 than between 1970 and 1986 C. the fire season between 1987 and 2003 was longer than that between 1970 and 1986 D. the average summer temperature will be I9C and 5? higher by 2050 than it is now 45. Which of the following statements will Scientists from the University of Arizona agree to? A. More wildfires lead to the trend of global warming. B. Hot summers have nothing to do with the increasing wildfires. C. The earlier snow melts, the more probably forest fires will happen.

The results of a study on wild fires. C. The causes of fires in the United States. D. The changes in climate in the western United States. E Life learning ( sometimes called un - schooling or self - directed learning) is one of those concepts that are almost easier to explain by saying what it isn?t, than what it is. And that, s probably because our own schooled backgrounds have convinced us that learning happens only in a dedicated building on certain days, between certain hours, and managed by a specially trained professional. Within that schooling framework，no matter how hard teachers try and no matter how good their textbooks, many bright students get bored, many slower students struggle and give Up or lose their self 一 respect, and most of them reach the end of the process unprepared to enter into society. Hiey have memorized a certain body of knowledge long enough to rush back the information on tests, but they haven ? t really learnt much, at least of the official curriculum. Life learners, on the other hand, know that learning is not difficult9 that people learn things quite easily if they, re not compelled and forced, if they see a need to learn something, and if they are trusted and respected enough to learn it on their own timetable, at their own speed, in their own way. They know that learning cannot be produced in us and that we cannot produce it in others - no matter what age and ?no matter whether we, re at school or at home. Life learning is independent of time, location or the presence of teacher. It does not require mom or dad to teach, or kids to work in workbooks at the kitchen table from 9 to noon from September to June. Life learning is learner - driven. It involves living and learning 一 in and from the real world. It is about exploring, questioning, experimenting, making messes, taking risks without fear of making mistakes, being laughed at and trying again. Furthermore, life learning is about trusting kids to learn what they need to know and about helping them to learn and grow in their own ways. It is about providing positive experiences that enable children to understand the world and their culture and to interact with it. 47.It is implied from the passage that it is difficult to ______?

A. find a specially trained teacher B. learn without going to school C. tell the nature of life learning D. carry life learning through 48. What does the writer say about the schooling framework? A. It often gives little care to the quality of teaching materials. B. It often fails to provide enough knowledge about life. C. It often ignores some parts of the official curriculum. D. It often produces slow students with poor memories. 49. ______________________________________________________ Life learners recognize that learning will not be hard if they are ______. A. cautious about any mistakes C. careful to make a time table B. clear about why to learn D. able to respect other people
50. According to the author, which of the following is true about life learning? A. It teaches a kid how to avoid being laughed at. B. It could be a road full of trials and errors. C. It makes a kid independent of his parents. D. It could prevent one from running risks. 第二节补全对话.(共.5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分） 根据对话内容，从对话后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂 黑。选项中有两项为多余选项。 -Hi，Linda ！ What are you doing? -Hi, Bob !I'm preparing for tomorrow, s test . - 5 1 ______ -Well, the library is full and the classroom is too noisy.

In the late 1950s Chubby Checker started a dance that he called the ”twist. ” The twist, like so many new dances, was lively, and people who performed it used a lot of energy.
