A One day an ant was drinking at a small stream and fell in. She made desperate efforts to reach the side, but made no progress at all. The poor ant almost exhausted was still bravely doing her best when a dove saw her. Moved with pity, the bird threw her a blade of grass, which supported her like a raft, and thus the ant reached the bank again. While she was resting and drying herself in the grass, she heard a man come near. He was walking along barefooted with a gun in his hand. As soon as he saw the dove, he wished to kill it. He would certainly have done so, but the ant bit him in the foot just as he raised his gun to fire. He stopped to see what had bit him, and the dove immediately flew away. It was an animal much weaker and smaller than herself that had saved her life. 【小题 1】. The ant could not reach the side though _______. A. she cried for help B. she asked the dove to save her C. she tried very hard D. she could smell well 【小题 2】. The dove saved the ant because _______.

B English may not be a world language forever While 375 million people around the globe use English as their native language, the number of people using it as a second language has already been well over that figure (数字). It is said that by the end of 2000, one billion people could use English to communicate with others, including both native speakers and non-native speakers. “The rise and fall of a language is closely connected with that country’s economic(经济 的) strength and development potential (潜力).” Rhodri Jones, the English 2000 manager of the
ELT group of the British Council said. An expert who has given many lectures on the future of English said the economic boots（快 速发展）in Asia would raise(提高) the position of the Chinese and Hindi languages. Therefore, the English language is facing a serious problem. Where will English turn in the next fifty years or the century? The recently introduced book from Britain “Future of English” might give people concerned with their question some enlightenments (启发). The book helps to help English teachers, planners, managers and decision makers with a professional interest in the development of English worldwide. With the book translated into Chinese and to be published soon, the book might be brought to wider sphere (范围)of people. “From the book, we learn many facts about the English language, and we may be able to predict (预测) its future after reading it.” said Dorothy Humphrey, who used to be a senior English teacher for the British Council. 【小题 1】.The reason why some language rises in the world depends on _______ . A. the population of the country B. the country’s economic strength in the world C. the number of the population who use it D. the country’s economic strength and development potential 【小题 2】. The book “Future of English” helps to _______ . A. B. C. D. improve the standard of people’s learning English adds to people’s interest toward English emphasize (强调) the importance in the world make people interested in the development of English worldwide
【小题 3】. After reading “Future of English” we know _______ . A. English is the language that the people who speak it is the most in the world B. English may disappear sooner or later C. the world is keeping changing all the time D. what the future of the English language is 【小题 4】. The main idea of the passage is _______ . A. why English has been popular in the world
B. how to improve people’s ability of learning English C. English has a bright future D. the usage of English may become less in the world one day 【小题 5】. According to this passage, English may not be a world language forever because _______ A. more and more people will come to visit China B. people in the world won’t like English in the future. C. the economic boots in Asia would raise the position of the Chinese and Hindi languages D. China and India will be more developed than those English-speaking countries
C I have a rule for travel: Never carry a map. I prefer to ask for directions. Foreign visitors are often puzzled in Japan because most streets there don’t have names. In Japan, people use landmarks in their directions instead of street names. For example, the Japanese will say to travelers, “Go straight down to the corner. Turn left at the big hotel and go past a fruit market. The post office is across from the bus stop.” In the countryside of the American Midwest, usually there are not many landmarks. There are no mountains, so the land is very flat（平坦的）. In many places there are no towns or buildings within miles. Instead of landmarks, people will tell you directions and distance. In Kansas or Iowa, for example, people will say, “Go north two miles. Turn east, and then go another mile.” People in Los Angeles, California, have no idea of distance on the map: They measure distance by means of time, not miles. “How far away is the post office?” you ask. “Oh,” they answer, “It’s about five minutes from here.” You say, “Yes, but how many miles away is it?” They don’t know. People in Greece sometimes do not even try to give directions because visitors seldom understand the Greek language. Instead of giving you the direction, a Greek will often say, “Follow me.” Then he’ll lead you through the streets of the city to the post office. Sometimes a person doesn’t know the answer to your question. What happens in this situation? A New Yorker might say, “Sorry, I have no idea.” But in Yucatan, Mexico, no one answers, “I don’t know.” People in Yucatan think that “I don’t know” is impolite. They usually give an answer, often a wrong one. A visitor can get very, very lost in Yucatan! One thing will help you everywhere — in Japan, in the United States, in Greece, in Mexico,
or in any other place. You might not understand a person’s words, but maybe you can understand his body language. He or she will usually turn and then point in the correct direction. Go in that direction, and you may find the post office! 【小题 1】.The passage mainly tells us that __________. A. never carry a map for travel B. there are not many landmarks in the American Midwest C. there are different ways to give directions in different parts of the world D. New Yorkers often say, “I have no idea,” but people in Yucatan, Mexico, never say this. 【 小 题 2 】 .The passage says, “In Japan, people use landmarks in their directions.” The word“landmarks”means __________. A. building names B. street names C. there are different ways to give directions in different parts of the world D. buildings or places which are easily recognized 【小题 3】.In which place do people tell distance by means of time? A. Japan B. American Midwest C. Los Angeles, California D. Greece
【小题 4】. In the passage, __________ countries are mentioned by the writer. A. seven B. four C. eight D. five
【小题 5】. Which of the following is wrong? A. Travelers can learn about people’s customs by asking questions about directions. B. A person’s body language can help you understand directions. C. people in some places give directions in miles, but people in other places give directions by means of time. D. People in different places always give directions in the same way: They use street names. 【答案】 【小题 1】C 【小题 2】D 【小题 3】C 【小题 4】B 【小题 5】D

根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 D How to Make Friends Friendship is a very important human relationship and everyone needs good friends. Good friendship has many benefits. It offers companionship, improves self-worth and promotes good health. There are times in our lives such as when we have recently moved into a new town, or changed our jobs or schools. Such changes often leave us without a friend. 46 . But for many of us
the process is difficult and requires courage. Below are some helpful suggestions on how to make and keep friends. 1. Associate with others. The first step to making friends is associating with other people. You can go to public places to meet new people. Besides, you will need to make yourself known by becoming an active member of such places.

Hanging out will always be a pleasant experience. 4. Let it grow. It is a good thing to stay in touch.

5. Enjoy your friendship The best way to enjoy your friendship is to allow your friends to be themselves. 50 .
Try not to change them from who they are to what you want them to be. Become the kind of friend you will want your friend to be to you. A. B. C. D. E. F. G. Be cheerful. Do things together. Do not wait to be spoken to. Try not to find fault with your friends. Making new friends comes easy for some people. For a friendship to develop you need to stay in touch. So you will need to give your friend time to react to you.
