  •   I began to grow up that winter night when my parents and I were returning from my aunt’s house, and my mother said that we might soon be leaving for America. We were on the bus then. I was crying, and some people on the bus were turning around to look at me. I remember that I could not bear the thought of never hearing again the radio program for school children to which I listened every morning.
    I do not remember myself crying for this reason again. In fact, I think I cried very little when I was saying goodbye to my friends and relatives. When we were leaving I thought about all the places I was going to see—the strange and magical places I had known only from books and pictures. The country I was leaving and never to come back was hardly in my head then.
    The four years that followed taught me the importance of optimism(乐观), but the idea did not come to me at once. For the first two years in New York I was really lost—having to study in three schools as a result of family moves. I did not quite know what I was or what I should be. Mother remarried, and things became even more complex for me. Some time passed before my stepfather and I got used to each other. I was often sad, and saw no end to “the hard times.”
    My responsibilities in the family increased a lot since I knew English better than everyone else at home. I wrote letters, filled out forms, translated at interviews with Immigration officers(移民局官员), took my grandparents to the doctor and translated there, and even discussed telephone bills with company representatives.
    From my experiences I have learned one important rule: Almost all common troubles go away at last! Something good is certain to happen in the end when you do not give up, and just wait a little! I believe that my life will turn out all right, even though it will not be that easy.
    小题1: How did the author get to know America?
    A.From radio programs B.From books and pictures

    小题2: Upon leaving for America the author felt __________.

  •   On Christmas morning, I went to the Cockhedge Mall. People there were all busy buying their last minute requirements. I needed to buy a birthday card for my son-in-law whose birthday is the 29th of December. Picking up a few more things as well as my cared I went to join the line for the express checkout which was for people who only had a few items in a basket and not a trolley load. This line was next to the Customer Service desk.
    Seemingly waiting quite a long time, I was jogged out of my thoughts by a voice behind me making comments on the things I bought.
    It was so funny when I realized that she was describing the contents of my basket. The owner of the voice was a very pretty young lady. I said to her that I was going to buy a box of Christmas cookies but the only ones left were not to my liking. The lady told me that just opposite Cockhedge in Superdrug they had lots of cookies. I said, “I’m not going to bother now. I had enough of shops and I’m going home.”
    The assistant from the Customer Service came across at this time saying “If there is anyone in the line with a few items in their basket, none of which needed to be weighed, I will check out their groceries at the desk.” Because I had the sprouts which needed to be weighted, the young lady accepted the offer and walked away waving goodbye.
    Eventually my turn came at the checkout. I was walking away when I met my new friend once again who handed me a beautiful box of Christmas cookies. With a big hug she said “Hope you have a lovely Christmas.” She had been into Superdrug to buy me the cookies while I was still queuing in Cockhedge.
    What a generosity to a stranger! I was so surprised you could have knocked me down with a feather. My Good Samaritan would never know what a joyful Christmas day I had with my family. Telling them this story, as we ate around the table, kept everyone spellbound.
    小题1:The underlined word “spellbound” in the last paragraph probably means         .
    A.interestedB.disappointedC.astonishedD.frightened
    小题2:Which of the following could be the best title of the story?
    A.A Piece of Lucky FeatherB.A Surprise Christmas Gift
    C.The Boring Shopping ExperienceD.The Unforgettable Big Hug
    小题3:How does the writer feel about the pretty young lady?
    A.Worried.B.Satisfied.C.GratefulD.Proud.
    小题4:What can we learn from the story?
    A.Nobody is sure what will happen the next moment.
    B.A simple action can bring other people happiness.
    C.Being patient will decrease the waiting time.
    D.Life without hope and faith is a full thing.

  • We’ve all seen them: perfectly toned famous people on late-night television telling us that we too can develop rock-hard abdominal muscles(腹肌). It’s easy! Just pay $149.99 for the Torso Track or $149.75 for the Ad-Doer and watch those unwanted inches leave your waist. Americans spend tens of million of dollars on various products to firm up their fat around the waist.
    And did they work? Not necessarily. Independent studies have concluded that most of these products-no matter who approved them or how expensive they are-shape your midsection no better than old-fashioned stomach crunches(仰卧起坐). Some can even cause injury-like the $518.99 Body Shaper-Q8SP, which left electrical burns on some researchers at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. Others, like the popular Ab-Doer, trpically burn less energy than a gentle walk, according to a study to be published in September by the American Council on Exercise.
    The fact is that many Americans don’t have the biological makeup to develop an obvious abdominal muscles. They are either unable to get the necessary muscle mass or they can’t lose enough fat to make a difference. Even if the underlying muscles are well developed, and it takes to hide it is one-sixteenth of tan inch of fat. That’s enough to dismiss most healthy women as well as plenty of guys who do crunches every day.
    So what works best? In its new study, the exercise experts researched on the results of the popular Ab-Doer. A lengthy TV advertisement promises that just 10 minutes a day performing such movements as “Body Boogies” and “Good Mornings” will “help form those muscles the fun and easy way without diets.” Steven Loy, professor at California State University, Northridge, tested the promise by measuring the electrical activity produced by the abdominal muscles during three Ab-Doer movements. He and his colleagues then compared the results with those produced during traditional exercises. They determined that the muscles were no more active, and in some cases less so, when exercisers were using the Ab-Doer.
    Taking a broader approach, researchers at San Diego State University compared 13 abdominal exercises for their ability to develop the central abdominal muscles. They concluded, in a report published in May, that the most effective exercises kept turning the body and worked the muscles the entire time. Among the winners: the bicycle movements-so called because it looks as if you are riding a bike while lying flat on the floor-and exercises performed on the “Captain’s Chair”, a product typically found in gyms that helps hold the body in the air while you raise your legs up toward your chest. Researchers suggested that a varied routine of the different exercises could deliver the best results.
    小题1:Which of the following is the most effective in building abdominal muscles?
    A.Torso Track.B.Ab-Doer.
    C.Captain’s Chair.D.Body Shaper-Q8SP.
    小题2:According to the author, it’s difficult for many Americans to get visible firm abdominal muscles mainly because        .
    A.they do not put in enough efforts
    B.injuries interrupt their exercise frequently
    C.they change their exercise routine regularly
    D.how big their muscles will be is determined by birth
    小题3:The author convinces the readers by       .
    A.describing successful easesB.offering professional connects
    C.presenting findings of researchesD.comparing advertisements of products
    小题4:What’s the main purpose of this passage?
    A.To research and develop in order to create the perfect stomach and exercise machine.
    B.To promote proven exercise techniques and to advise against false advertisements.
    C.To indicate that diet and exercises are necessary factors for a fit midsection.
    D.To sponsor rich healthy lifestyle based on advanced product research.

  • Destiny and Personal Responsibility
    One important variable affecting communication across cultures is destiny(命运)and personal responsibility. This refers to the degree to which we feel ourselves the masters of our lives, contrary to the degree to which we see ourselves as subject to things outside our control. Another way to look at this is to ask how much we see ourselves able to change and act, to choose the course of our lives and relationships. Some have drawn a parallel between the personal responsibility in North American settings and the view itself. The North American view is vast, with large spaces of unpopulated land. The frontier attitude of “King” of the wilderness, and the expansiveness of the land reaching huge distances, may relate to generally high levels of confidence in the ability to shape and choose our destinies.
    In this expansive land, many children grow up with a heroic sense of life, where ideas are big, and hope springs forever. When they experience temporary failures, they encouraged to redouble their efforts, to “try, try again.” Action, efficiency(效率), and achievement are valued and expected. Free will is respected in laws and enforced by courts.
    Now consider places in the world with much smaller land, whose history reflects wars and tough struggles: Northern Ireland, Mexico, Israel, Palestine. In these places, destiny’s role is more important in human life. In Mexico, there is a history of hard life, fighting over land, and loss of homes. Mexicans are more likely to see struggles as part of their life and unavoidable. Their passive attitude is expr4essed in their way of responding to failure or accident by saying “ni modo”(“no way” or “tough lick”), meaning that the failure was destined.
    This variable is important to understanding cultural conflict. If someone believing in free will crosses paths with someone more passive, miscommunication is likely. The first person may expect action and accountability. Failing to see it, he may conclude that the second is lazy, not cooperative, or dishonest. The second person will expect respect for the natural order of thins. Failing to see it, he may conclude that the first is forcible, rude, or big headed in his ideas of what can be accomplished or changed.
    小题1:The author thinks that one’s character is partly determined by        .
    A.physical sensesB.general attitude
    C.financial backgroundD.geographic characteristics
    小题2:According to the passage, Mexicans would think that Americans are        .
    A.impracticalB.dishonestC.ambitiousD.hesitant
    小题3:The underlined word “subject” in Paragraph 1 probably means      .
    A.a topic of a discussionB.a branch of knowledge
    C.a person being experimented onD.a person under the power of others
    小题4:The author would probably agree that        .
    A.vast land may lead to a more controllable desire
    B.heroic sense of life roots deeply in a small country
    C.living in limited space contributes to an accepting attitude
    D.fighting over land may help people gain high levels of confidence

    Twenty years ago,I drove a taxi for a living.I met  2l  people.But none touched me  22  than a woman I picked up late one night.
    I received a call from  23 in a quiet part of town.When I arrived at 2:30 a.m.,the building was  24  except for a single light in a ground floor window.I  walked to the door and  25 .“Just a minute,”answered a  26 ,elderly voice.After a long pause,the door opened.A small woman  27  her 80s stood before me.Beside her was a small suitcase.I took it to the taxi.and then returned to  28 the woman.She took my arm and we walked  29  toward the roadside.
    Seated,she gave me  30 .“I’m on my way to a hospice(临终关怀医院).I'm in no hurry.Can you drive through downtown?” I saw her eyes shining with  31 in the rearview mirror.“I don’t have any  32  left.”she continued.“The doctor says I don’t have very long.”
    During the next two hours’ 33 , sometimes she asked me to  34 in front of a particular building or corner and she  35 stare into the darkness.When we got to the destination,she asked,“How much do I   36 you?” “Nothing,”I said.“You            37 make a living.”she answered.“I have  38  passengers,”I replied,and gave her a hug. She held onto me  39 .“You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,” she said.“Thank you.”
    After that,I drove aimlessly,lost in thought.People usually believe that our lives center upon great moments.  40 great moments often catch us unaware,beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

  • Joanne was stuck in a traffic jam in central Birmingham at 5:30 and at 6:30 she was expected to be chairing a meeting of the tennis club. At last, the traffic was moving. She swung quickly racing to her house. As she opened the door, she nearly tripped over (被绊倒)Sheba.
    “Hey, Sheba,” she said, “I've got no time for you now, but I'll take you out as soon as I get back from tennis club.” Then she noticed Sheba seemed to be coughing or choking. Obviously, she could hardly breathe. Immediately, Joanne realized she would have to take her to the vet (兽医).
    When she got there, the vet was just about to close for the day. Seeing the state of Sheba, Dr. Sterne brought her quickly into his office.
    “Listen, doctor, I'm really in a rush to get to a meeting, can I leave her with you, and go and get changed? I'll be back in ten minutes to pick her up, and then I'll take her on to the meeting with me. Is that OK?”
    “Sure.” said the doctor.
    Joanne made the quick trip back to her house in a couple of minutes. As she was once more entering the hallway, the phone by the door began to ring.
    “This is Dr. Sterne,” said an anxious voice. “I want you to get out of that house immediately, ”said the doctor's voice. “I'm coming round right away, and the police will be there any time now. Wait outside!”
    At that moment, a police car screeched (发出尖锐的声音)to a stop outside the house. Two policemen got out and ran into the house. Joanne was by now completely confused and very frightened. Then the doctor arrived.
    “Where’s Sheba? Is she OK?” shouted Joanne.
    “She’s fine, Joanne. I took out the thing which was choking her, and she’s OK now. ”
    Just then, the two policemen reappeared from the house, half-carrying a white—faced man, who could hardly walk. There was blood all over him.
    “My God, ” said Joanne,  “how did he get in there? And how did you know he was there?”
    “I think he must be a burglar.” said the doctor. “I knew he was there because when I finally removed what was stuck in Sheba’s throat:it turned out to be three human fingers.”
    小题1:. What was Joanne supposed to do at 6:30?
    A.To walk her dog.B.To see her doctor.
    C.To attend a club meeting.D.To play tennis with her friends.

    A.to dress up for the meetingB.to phone the police station

    B.the police found the burglar had broken in
    C.Joanne had planned to take her dog to the meeting
    D.the doctor performed a difficult operation on the dog

  • A dog who chewed off his owner’s infected toe(脚趾)while he was passed-out drunk has been called a lifesaver. Jerry Douthett had been out drinking when his dog Kiko bit off a large part if his big toe. His wife, Rosee, rushed him to hospital where tests showed the 48-year-old musician had dangerous high blood-sugar levels. Doctors told him his toe would have had to be cut off anyway.
    Mr Douthett said he had refused to get medical advice despite his toe being swollen for months. “I was hiding it from people, Rosee included,” he said. “It smelled , and I look back now and realize every time we’d visit someone with a dog, their dog would smell all over my foot.”
    The night before Mr Douthett had agreed to see a doctor, he passed out at home after going out drinking. He said, “I woke up and the dog was lying along side by foot. I said, ‘Ah, there’s blood everywhere.’ I ran to the bathroom and started to scream.”
    However, he believes Kiko could sense the disease coming from his big toe. “He’s a hero,” Mr Douthett said. “It wasn’t an aggressive attack. He just ate the infection. He saved my life. He ate it. I mean, he must have eaten it, because we couldn’t find it anywhere else in the house. I look down. There’s blood all over, and my toe is gone.”
    Before the operation, Mr Douthett asked a nurse, “Is there any chance I can get whatever’s left of my toe, so I can give it to Kiko as a treat?” Kiko is still with the family but is under observation by authorities.
    小题1:.Mr Douthett didn’t want to get medical treatment because ______ .
    A.he didn’t know about his disease at all
    B.he was unwilling to let others know about his disease
    C.doctors had no good ways to treat his bad toe
    D.his wife advised him not to do that
    小题2:.From Paragraph 3 we can infer that ______ .
    A.Rosee managed to persuade her husband to go to hospital
    B.Mr Douthett made his big toe worse by frequent drinking
    C.Mr Douthett didn’t know his toe was chewed off at first
    D.it is dangerous for people to let pet dogs sleep in the bedrooms
    小题3:.What did Mr Douthett think of his dog ?
    A.It was clever and brave.
    B.It never attacked healthy people.
    C.It was a cruel but helpful dog.
    D.It was a dangerous dog in fact.

  • At about 4 am, after hours of being unable to sleep, of shivering in the cold mountain air and trying to silence my crying kids who kept waking up, of attempting to find a comfortable sleeping position, of listening to whether there might have been a bear outside our tent, I finally couldn’t stand it any more. I complained, “Everything has gone wrong.”
    My wife and I were in one tent with our two young kids. A hundred yards east away was Summit Lake, where the glorious early morning mist was shimmering(闪烁)off the water. A couple miles to the southwest was the base of the Lassen Peak Trail. The base was 8,000 feet above sea level, and huge snow dotted the scenery even in mid August. Further west still was Bumpass Hell, with steam rising up.
    As the sun crept up over the edge of the Lassen peak, we fired up the camp stove and had breakfast. Half an hour later, my six-year-old daughter and I were in the parking lot of the Lassen peak trail, getting ready to go up the mountainside. We wouldn’t make it all the way, but it didn’t matter. We would see nature at its extremes: the volcanic ash that layered on the earth turning the melting snow a mysterious pink as the sun struck it; the blues of the sky shading into the blues of distant lakes, which in turn shaded into the whites and grays of the snow.
    My daughter grabbed my camera. She wanted to take a photo of “the composite(混合物)”of colors. Looking out over that scenery, and seeing my daughter fascinated by nature, I felt stupid about my morning complaints.
    Yes, camping is uncomfortable. And yes, there’s a lot to be said for getting out a credit card,reserving a room in a nice hotel, and going out for a fancy meal. But there’s also something wonderful about being so close to raw nature. And , as important, there’s something vital about getting young children out of their increasingly modern comfort zones and forcing them to meet the world around them.

    I had always loved music and dreamed of being a musician, travelling to different countries, meeting lots of people and doing something I loved to earn my money.   16 , my parents had a farm and I didn’t want to do that—I wanted to do something   17 .

    When the day of the show came, I was so   23  that I couldn’t eat.   24  was the first time I had played in front of other people and I felt   25  unsure of myself. I had no idea whether I was   26  good and was worried that no one would like me.
    When my turn came, I played my favorite tune and I even started to   27 ! I could not hear what I sounded like, but to my surprise, I eventually forgot about all the people in the audience and started to enjoy myself. When the song ended, everyone clapped and some people

  • To tell you the truth, I’m not interested in owning a cellular (网络) phone. Except for use in an emergency (紧急情况), for ordinary cellular phone service is very expensive. How would I get help if I were in trouble or in danger? A good friend said about a product she thought would settle my problem. It’s the SOS phone—a cellular phone service designed for emergency use.
    With the touch of a button, the SOS phone will connect me to a roadside emergency service, a 911 service or a trained SOS operator, 24 hours a day. If I ever need help. I know it’s just a phone call away.
    By pressing the “Tow” button, I’ll bc connected with my emergency roadside service provider. Or, if I don’t have one, the SOS operator can suggest one to me and get in touch with them immediately.
    The “911” button would connect me to 911 emergency service in my area------best of all, the call is completely free!
    If I just want to call home to tell my husband and children something necessary, I can, by pressing the “Call” hutton, I’ll reach an operator. When I ask the operator to call home, I’ll be connected automatically (自动地). And because the Call Center has my 10 most-used phone numbers, I don’t even have to recite the numbers.
    Unlike ordinary cellular phone plans, the SOS phone doesn't have any minimum usage requirements (底价) or other promises that could change the price
    Why not try it yourself!
    小题1:The writer enjoys using the SOS phone because ______.

    C.you can be connected with anyone
    D.you can get service from any cellular phones
    小题4:When you want to call home, ______.  
    A.you will have to tel1 the operator your home phone number
    B.the operator will suggest one phone number to you

  • “Mom, can I bake some bread?” We were 15; my best friend, Hanna, and I, determined to try our hands at creating some beautiful bread.
    “It’s not worth the trouble,” my mother said. “It takes lots of time and makes a big mess. Our bakery bread is delicious without all that effort.”
    Begging was useless. Mom’s “no” meant “No!”
    But several weeks later, opportunity knocked. My parents were going out for the evening. I immediately invited Hanna to be my partner in bread-baking crime.
    We studied the recipe. That was easy. “Mix oil into flour then beat in four eggs, one at a time, with remaining sugar and salt.”
    We were not good at breaking eggs. I tried to learn from my mother.
    “Gradually add eight cups of flour. When dough (面团) holds together, squeeze it.”
    We took turns working like that. “Is the dough ‘holding together’?” we asked each other.
    I remembered my neighbor’s instructions: “If it’s too sticky, add some flour; if too dry, add water.”
    We added water. Then more flour. Then more water. By then, the mass of our dough had grown very much.
    “Place dough on floured surface and squeeze till smooth,” the recipe instructed.
    We took turns burying our hands in the damp dough, pinching, squeezing, and feeling it leak between fingers. “Clean and oil bowl, and then return dough to bowl. Cover and let dough rise in a warm place for one hour.”
    This was good news—we’d have a break. On the dirty kitchen chairs, we dreamed about our beautiful bread. “See?” we would tell my mom. “Isn’t it worth the work?”
    Hanna and I couldn’t help glancing at the rising process every few minutes. But nothing happened.
    “Maybe something will happen in the hot oven,” I said.
    Unfortunately, when we removed the loaves from the oven, they were like hard stones.
    Mom was right; it takes time and effort. It sometimes makes a mess. But still it feels good, somehow, to be part of that long, ongoing chain of bread bakers. Since that night, both Hanna and I have learned to do it right.

  • As I sat beside the window of our classroom that afternoon, my heart sank further with each passing car. This was a day I’d looked forward to for weeks: Miss Pace’s fourth-grade, end-of-the-year party.
    I had happily volunteered my mother when Miss Pace looked for cookie volunteers. Mom’s chocolate chips were well-known, and I knew they’d be a hit with my classmates. But two o’clock passed, and there was no sign of her. Most of the other mothers had already come and gone, dropping off their sweet offerings.
    The three o’clock bell soon took me away from my thoughts and I took my book bag from my desk.
    I decided I would slam the front door, and refuse to return her hug. But when I arrived, she wasn’t at home.
    I was lying face-down on my bed upstairs when I heard her come through the front door.
    “Robbie,” she called out a bit urgently. “Where are you?”
    I could then hear her rushing anxiously from room to room, wondering where I could be. I remained silent.
    Coming through the door, she said: “I’m so sorry, honey,” she said. “I just forgot. I got busy and forgot.”
    Then my mother did something completely unexpected. She began to laugh! How could she laugh at a time like this? I rolled over and faced her, ready to let her see my rage (愤怒).
    But my mother wasn’t laughing at all. She was crying. “I’m so sorry,” she said. “I let you down. I let my little boy down.”
    I was moved by her tears.
    I tried to remember her kind words from times past when I’d skinned knees or cut myself, times when she knew just the right thing to say.
    “It’s okay, Mom. We didn’t even need those cookies. There was plenty of stuff to eat. Don’t cry. It’s all right. Really.”
    We didn’t say another word. We just held each other. When we came to the point where I would usually pull away, I decided that, this time, I could hold on, perhaps, just a little bit longer.

  • I love charity(慈善) shops and so do lots of other people in Britain because you find quite a few of them on every high street. The charity shop is a British institution, selling everything from clothes to electric goods, all at very good prices. You can get things you won’t find in the shops anymore. The thing I like best about them is that your money is going to a good cause and not into the pockets of profit-driven companies, and you are not damaging the planet, but finding a new home for unwanted goods.
    The first charity shop was opened in 1947 by Oxfam. The famous charity’s appeal to aid postwar Greece had been so successful it had been flooded with donations(捐赠物). They decided to set up a shop to sell some of these donations to raise money for that appeal. Now there are over 7,000 charity shops in the UK. My favourite charity shop in my hometown is the Red Cross shop, where I always find children’s books, all 10 or 20 pence each.
    Most of the people working in the charity shops are volunteers, although there is often a manager who gets paid. Over 90% of the goods in the charity shops are donated by the public. Every morning you see bags of unwanted items outside the front of shops, although they don’t encourage this, rather ask people to bring things in when the shop is open.
    The shops have very low running costs: all profits go to charity work. Charity shops raise more than £110 million a year, funding(资助)medical research, overseas aid, supporting sick and poor children, homeless and disabled people, and much more. What better place to spend your money? You get something special for a very good price and a good moral sense. You provide funds to a good cause and tread lightly on the environment.
    小题1:. The author loves the charity shop mainly because of _______.
    A.its convenient location
    B.its great variety of goods
    C.its spirit of goodwill
    D.its nice shopping environment
    小题2:. The first charity shop in the UK was set up to ____.
    A.sell cheap products
    B.deal with unwanted things
    C.raise money for patients
    D.help a foreign country
    小题3:. Which of the following is TRUE about charity shops?
    A.The operating costs are very low.
    B.The staff are usually well paid.
    C.90% of the donations are second-hand.
    D.They are open twenty-four hours a day.
    小题4:. Which of the following may be the best title for the passage?
    A.What to Buy a Charity Shops.
    B.Charity Shop: Its Origin & Development.
    C.Charity Shop: Where You Buy to Donate.
    D.The Public’s Concern about Charity Shops.

  • I am a person who does not like to wait.I don' t like lines, being put on hold when making a phone call, arriving at an appointment to find that my companion will be delayed and of course, I don * t like waiting rooms.
    However, I realize that my agony(痛苦) will not be good for me, as an increasingly, crowded world can only mean one thing—more waiting.
    Owing to this, I have taken a measure and decided to turn my disappointment to productive ends.In short, I am looking for what I call "waiting in line books".
    These are books that contain material designed for being read in shortened words, so there is no extended story line to lose track of.Another requirement is that they be small enough to slip neatly into my back pocket.
    The other day I went to the supermarket.Convinced that the rain would keep most people away, I was surprised to see that the place was crowded with shoppers.Every checkout was open—and jammed! But I could take out my pocket book and go to work.
    The more the world demands that I wait, the more I learn from my waiting library.Look at these titles: One Hundred Things Every American Should Know; The Poetry of Robert Frost; Living Thoughts of Leading Thinkers; Still More Toasts.I have learned interesting and enriching things and much knowledge from these books.
    On a recent visit to the general store, I placed my order at the counter along with six or seven other people.The one female employee seemed to have her hands full as she rushed about."Just be patient," she said to me.
    No problem.I quietly opened my dictionary of prose (散文) and poetical quotations. Perhaps the other customers regarded me as a bookish, lonely soul.But little did they realize that I was enjoying the company of Shakespeare, Thoreau, Homer and Ben Johnson.
    小题1:According to the passage, the world ______.
    A.needs to produce many materials to useB.is becoming more and more crowded
    C.loses tracks of story line increasinglyD.is crowded with shoppers everywhere
    小题2:How did the author overcome his agony of waiting?
    A.By reading books designed to be read in shortened words.
    B.By arriving early for an appointment.
    C.By taking measures to produce some books for readers.
    D.By keeping most people away from the supermarket for some reasons.
    小题3:Which of the following can't be carried in the author's pocket?
    A.One Hundred Things Every American Should Know
    B.The Poetry of Robert Frost
    C.Living Thoughts of Leading Thinkers
    D.Homer and Ben Johnson
    小题4:Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?
    A.The author succeeded in changing his agony into fun.
    B.The author was a bookish and lonely soul.
    C.Six or seven employees in the store were busy in rushing about.
    D.There were fewer customers in the supermarket on rainy days.

  • Walking down a path through some woods in Georgia, I saw a small pool of water ahead on the path. I angled my direction to go around it on the part of the path that wasn't covered by water or mud. As I reached the pool, I was suddenly attacked! Yet I did nothing for the attack. It was so unpredictable and from somewhere totally unexpected. I was surprised as well as unhurt though I had been struck four or five times. I backed up a foot and my attacker stopped attacking me. Had I been hurt I wouldn't have found it amusing. And I was laughing. After all, I was being attacked by a butterfly!
    Having stopped, laughing, I took a step forward. My attacker rushed me again. He charged towards me at full speed, attempting to hurt me but in vain. For a second time, I took a step backwards while my attacker paused. I wasn't sure what to do. After all, it's just not everyday that one is attacked by a butterfly. I stepped back to look the situation over. My attacker moved back to land on the ground. That's when I discovered why my attacker was charging me only moments earlier. He had a mate and she was dying.
    Sitting close beside her, he opened and closed his wings as if to fan her. I could only admire the love and courage of that butterfly in his concern for his mate. He had taken it up on himself to attack me for his mate's sake (缘故), even though she was clearly dying and I was so large. He did so just to give her those extra few precious moments of life, should I have been careless enough to step on her. His courage in attacking something thousands of times larger and heavier than himself just for his mate's safety seemed admirable. I couldn't do anything other than reward him by walking on the more difficult side of the pool. He had truly earned those moments to be with her, undisturbed.     
    Since then, I've always tried to remember the courage of that butterfly whenever I see huge barriers facing me.
    小题1:Why did the writer change his direction while walking down a path?
    A.To get close to a butterfly.B.To look over the bad situation.
    C.To escape a sudden attack.D.To avoid getting his shoes dirty.
    小题2:What made the man feel funny?
    A.Making the attacker pause.B.Being attacked by a butterfly.
    C.Being stepped on by his mate.D.Discovering the energetic butterfly.
    小题3:From this experience the man learned       .
    A.what he should do when faced with trouble
    B.people should show sympathy to the weak
    C.how he should deal with attacks
    D.people should protect butterflies
    小题4: Which of the following words can best describe the butterfly?
    A.Careless.B.Amusing.C.Courageous. D.Aggressive.

  •               Wal-Mart is not just the world's largest retailer (零售商). It's the world's largest company, which sells in three months what number-two retailer Home Depot sells in a year.
    Wal-Mart exercises its power for just one purpose: to bring the lowest possible prices to its customers. At Wal-Mart, that goal is never reached. The retailer has a clear policy for suppliers: On basic products that don't change, the price Wal-Mart will pay, and will charge shoppers, must drop year after year. But what almost no one outside the world of Wal-Mart and none of its 21,000 suppliers know is the high cost of those low prices. To survive in the face of its pricing demands, makers of everything from bikes to jeans have had to close US plants in favor of obtaining products from abroad.
    Indeed, the real story of Wal-Mart, the story that never gets told, is the story of the pressure the biggest retailer constantly applies to its suppliers in the name of bringing us "every day low prices".
    The giant retailer' s low prices often come with a high cost. Wal-Mart' s pressure can crush the companies it does business with and force them to send jobs overseas. Are we shopping our way straight to the unemployment line? Of course, US companies have been moving jobs offshore for decades, long before Wal-Mart was a retailing power. But there is no question that the chain is helping accelerate the loss of American jobs to low-wage countries such as Thailand.
    People ask, "How can it be bad for things to come into the US cheaply?" Sure, it's great to have bargains. But you can' t buy anything if you' re not employed.
    There is no question that Wal-Mart's drive to squeeze out cost has benefited consumers. By now, it is accepted wisdom that Wal-Mart makes the companies it does business with more efficient and focused. Wal-Mart itself is known for continuous improvement in its ability to handle, move, and track goods. It is legendary (传奇) for forcing its suppliers to redesign everything from their packaging to their computer systems. It is also legendary for quite straightforwardly telling them what it will pay for their goods.
    小题1: How do suppliers meet the requirements of Wal-Mart?
    A.To sell even more goods in three months.
    B.To cut down the employment rate sharply.
    C.To charge shoppers at a much higher price.
    D.To run the business in a well-organized way.
    小题2: Wal-Mart's low price policy results in ____.
    A.more high-paying jobs
    B.better designed packages
    C.bigger profit of its partners
    D.more jobless American workers
    小题3: What can we infer from the passage?
    A.Still more quality goods will be provided.
    B.The food you get at Wal-Mart costs least.
    C.The value of Mal-Mart is over assessed.
    D.Wal-Mart is a very demanding company.
    小题4:What's the best title for the passage?
    A.The Fortune Wal-Mart Makes
    B.The Wal-Mart you don't Know
    C.The Biggest Retailer—Wal-Mart
    D.The Money Saving Tip in Wal-Mart

  • I often write about the bad state of television these days, but recently my mom told me about a story she saw on 60 Minutes that was inspiring, educational, and entertaining for the whole family. I went to the show’s website to see for myself. My mom was right. At a time when even Barbara Walters says she’s really bored with celebrities interviews, this one will not disappoint.
    It’s the story of Derek Paravicini, a 30-year-old who was born three months early, physically disabled (he can’t button his own shirt), blind, and severely autistic(自闭的).
    Yet, through total luck and coincidence, his family discovered that Derek had a remarkable musical talent when he was three.
    Derek can hear any musical composition one time and play it perfectly on the piano.
    That’s right. He only has to hear it once.
    Even more unbelievable, his brain, like a computer, can keep many songs that he can immediately repeat when asked. But his talent isn’t limited to just learning things by heart. Derek is a true musical genius and artist who plays beautifully in a wide range of styles and can make his own music.
    With his talent, Derek has raised millions of dollars putting on charity concerts. He also donates his time to senior centers where he acts as a human jukebox (自动唱机) machine, taking requests from senior citizens who haven’t heard their favorite songs for decades.
    As it turns out, Derek loves people and his extraordinary talent has been the key to unlocking his personality and social development.
    If you want to inspire your family, pop some popcorn and sit everyone down to watch this excellent piece of journalism. If your kids are like mine, it will cause a great family discussion about the definition of “disability” and the extraordinary ability of the human brain and spirit. It may even give you the perfect answer the next time your child says he or she “can’t” do something. Now that’s priceless.
    Who says there’s nothing good on TV?
    小题1: From the first paragraph, we know that 60 minutes is a TV program on      .
    A.interviewing celebrities
    B.interviewing the disabled
    C.the latest news round the world
    D.stating the positive influence of TV
    小题2: How does Derek help the elderly?
    A.By buying them a jukebox machine.
    B.By building senior centers for them.
    C.By singing the old songs they ask for.
    D.By playing the piano to raise money for them.
    小题3: In the opinion of the author, Derek can     .
    A.attract the whole family to watch TV together
    B.cause family members to help the disabled
    C.help kids understand the ability of their brains
    D.encourage kids to accept challenges in life
    小题4:The author’s purpose in writing this passage is to     .
    A.prove that there is something good on TV
    B.introduce a disabled but gifted musician
    C.call on people to show more love to the disabled
    D.express personal admiration for Derek Paravicini

  • My first most vivid and broad impression of the identity of things seems to me to have been gained on a memorable raw afternoon towards evening near my parents’ tomb in the churchyard.
    “Hold your noise!” came a terrible voice, as a man started up from among the tombs at the side of the church. “Keep still, you little devil(小鬼), or I’ll cut your throat!”
    A fearful man, all in coarse grey, with a great iron on his leg. A man with no hat, and with broken shoes, and with an old rag tied round his head. He seized me by the chin(下巴).
    “Tell us your name!” said the man. “Quick!”
    “Pip, sir.”
    “Show us where you live,” said the man. “Point out the place!”
    I pointed to where our village lay, on the flat in-shore among the alder-trees and pollards, a mile or more from the church.
    The man, after looking at me for a moment, turned me upside down, and emptied my pockets. There was nothing in them but a piece of bread.
    “You young dog,” said the man, licking his lips, “what fat cheeks you ha’ got. Darn me if I couldn’t eat em, and if I han’t half a mind to’t!”
    I earnestly expressed my hope that he wouldn’t, and held tighter to the tombstone on which he had put me; partly, to keep myself upon it; partly, to keep myself from crying.
    “Now then lookee here!” said the man. “Where’s your mother?”
    “There, sir!” said I.
    He started, made a short run, and stopped and looked over his shoulder.
    “There, sir!” I timidly explained, pointed to the tombstone. “That’s my mother.”
    “Oh!” said he, coming back. “And is that your father alonger your mother?”
    “Yes, sir,” said I; “him too; late of thisparish(教区).”
    小题1: The “voice” in the second paragraph came from______.
    A.the churchB.the manC.the bankD.the boy
    小题2:The boy probably lived  _____.
    A.in the parishB.in the valleyC.in the cityD.in the country

    A.the boy was very calm and smart
    B.the man hit the boy in the face
    C.the boy would forever remember the raw afternoon
    D.the man was very kind and considerate

    She was  57  for several minutes. Then she said something 58  me to think about. “So I think love isn’t like a broken arm.”

  • Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is also the most neglect (忽视). Common reasons for not eating breakfast include having no time, not feeling hungry, traditional dislike and dieting.
    Breakfast simply means “break the fast’’. Your body spends at least 6 to 12 hours each night in a fasting state. In the morning your body needs energy for the day’s work ahead. 
    A good breakfast should provide 1/3 of your total calorie(卡路里)needs for the day. On average, we eat 400 less calories for breakfast than for dinner. If breakfast doesn’t appeal (吸引) to you in the morning, try eating a lighter dinner earlier in the evening or save half of your dinner for breakfast in the morning.
    If you still aren’t hungry in the morning, start with something small like juice or toast or have a nutritious (有营养的) mid-morning snack (小吃) later when you are hungry.
    So, you say you are on a diet. Some people fear that eating breakfast will make them hungrier during the day and they will eat more. It is true that eating breakfast is likely to make you feel hungry throughout the day. That is because your body is working correctly. Although you may feel as if you are eating more all day long, in reality you are probably not.
    Not eating breakfast can also cause you t overeat, since a fall in blood sugar often makes you feel very hungry later. To make matters worse, since your body is in a slow state, it will not be able to burn those extra calories very efficiently (有效). If you feed your body healthy snacks and meals throughout the day, you are less likely to become hungry and stuff (填饱) yourself as soon as you begin to eat.
    Since breakfast is the first and most important meal of the day, choosing the right food is important. The best breakfast foods are fruits ,juice, lean meat and grain products such as bread, rice, noodles and cereals.

  • Today I was at the mall waiting for friends, when a lady wearing a knit hat and a sweater came up to me and, shivering, said, “I’m homeless. Would you mind buying me some food?”
    In that split second, everything I’d learned since kindergarten flashed through my mind. Don’t talk to strangers… Be a good citizen… People will take advantage of you… Treat others as you wish to be treated…I guess love won the debate. “Sure,” I said. “What would you like?”
    She thought and then said, “I’d like to get Chinese food.” We headed upstairs. She ordered soup, an egg roll, white rice, and pepper chicken. I would normally think that was a lot, but she had probably barely eaten in the last few days. I got my usual – lo mein and General Tso’s chicken.
    Meanwhile I was eating my lo mein, picking around the cabbage and the other vegetables. Joyce said, “If you don’t like it you can take it back.” I told her that I liked it, but was not fond of the vegetables. She broke into a big grin. “You don’t like vegetables, huh? Neither did I. But now I do.” I immediately felt guilty. How could I be picking at my food across from someone who barely gets to eat at all?
    I tried my best to finish, but she seemed to sense my guilt and said, “You don’t have to eat it if you don’t want it.” How could she know what I was feeling? I told her the dish was my favorite, but I just eat slowly.
    She got up to get a to-go box. “Would you like one?” she asked, but I refused. I realized that this food would probably last her for a few days, and I was glad she had ordered a lot.
    “Would you like these?” I asked, gesturing at the food I had left untouched. “Oh, no, thank you,” she said. “This is enough.” I got up to throw my tray away, feeling guilty again.
    “I need to meet my friends now,” I explained. “It was so nice to meet you, Joyce.”
    “You too, Claire,” she replied with a smile. “Thank you.”
    I headed to the theater, and she went back downstairs. I kept puzzling, Why is Joyce homeless?  She shouldn’t need people to buy her dinner. She was a nurse. She got good grades. She took pictures for her yearbook. She was the person I hope to be in the future. How could such a good life be rewarded with horrible luck?
    Anyway, I wish her the best, and hope that the force that brought us together will help her find what she deserves in life.
