The shop owner, Ernie, jumped out of his seat to greet Kyle. He was the shop?s first customer of the day. “Good morning, sir!” Ernie said, “What can I help you with?” “Well, I….” Kyle started to say. “Wait, don?t tell me,” Ernie stopped him. “You?re looking for a …a little dog… for your
daughter?s birthday, Right?” “Not really, I just ….” Ernie didn?t let him finish. “Ah, I?ve got it. You just moved to a new office, and you want some fish for it. I have some very nice fish bowls over here.?? “In fact, I…” Kyle was starting to look very nervous and strange. “No fish? Ah, a cat! You look like a cat person. At Ernie?s Pet World, we have the best cats. Take a look at this lovely one with long, white hair. She?s looking at you. She?s thinking, ?Take me home.? Would you like some cat food and toys, too?” “No, thank you,” Kyle said. By this time, he was walking up and down. He had a terrible look on his face. “Really, I?m not interested in cats or fish or little dogs. ” “What do you want, then?” Ernie asked.

One day a lawyer said to him, “One thousand dollars, and here is the money.” As Hobbs took the package of notes, he was very dumbfounded. He didn?t know where the money came from and how to spend it. He said to himself, “I could go to find a hotel and live like a rich man for a few days; or I give up my work in the factory and do what I?d like to do: painting pictures. I could do that for a few weeks, but what would I do after that? I should have lost my place in the factory and have no money to live on. If it were a little less money, I would buy a new coat, or a radio, or give a dinner to my friends. If it were more, I could give up the work and pay for painting pictures. But it?s too much for one and too little for the other.” “Here is the reading of your uncle?s will （遗嘱） ,” said the lawyer, “telling what is to be done with this money after his death. I must ask you to remember one point. Your uncle has said you must bring me a paper showing exactly what you did with his money, as soon as you have spent it.” “Yes, I see. I?ll do that,” said the young man. 25. Hobbs wanted to borrow money because _______. A. He wanted to learn to paint pictures B. He wanted to buy some pictures

Singaporeans, even those of the same ethnic group (少数民族), have many different first languages and cultures. For example, within the Singaporean Chinese group, nearly a third speak English as their home language while almost half speak Standard Chinese as their home language and the rest speak various Chinese dialects (方言) as their home language. Due to these reasons, the English fluency level of people in Singapore varies vastly from person to person. Most reasonably educated Singaporeans do speak Singapore Standard English, alternatively known as Educated Singapore English, which, grammatically, is not different from standard British English, with changes being limited to accent and a few borrowed words, causing few challenges to any native Britons. Singapore English derives (起源) its roots from the 146 years of British colonial rule over Singapore until its independence in 1965. Before 1965, the standard form of English in Singapore had always been British English. After Singapore declared independence, English in Singapore began to take a life of its own, leading to the development of modern Singapore English. English had been the official language of the colonial government, and when Singapore gained self-government in 1959, the local government decided to keep English as the main language in order to help develop economy. The use of English as the nation?s first language serves to bridge the gap between different ethnic groups in Singapore. English is the global language for commerce, technology and science, and improvement of English also helps to expedite Singapore?s development and it becomes important part of the global economy. There is an increasing trend of Singaporeans speaking English at home. For children who started primary school in 2009, 60% of Chinese along with 60% Indian pupils and 35% of Malay pupils mainly speak English at home. Because many Singaporeans grew up with English as their first language in school, some Singaporean Chinese may not be able to speak Standard Chinese. 32.How many people in Singapore are native? A. Less than a quarter of the population. B. Nearly sixty percent of the population. C. Only half of the population. D. About forty percent of the population. 33.According to the text, when did the British begin to rule Singapore? A. In 146 B. In 1959 C. In 1819 D. In 1965. 34.What is the meaning of the underlined word “expedite” in Paragraph 4? A. Hold back. B. Bring down. C. Put off. D. Speed up.
35.What can we infer from the last two paragraphs? A. English is important to the union of the ethnic groups in Singapore. B. English has replaced all the other languages in Singapore. C. The British government suggested people in Singapore use more English. D. Almost all the children can speak English freely at home and at school. 第二节（共 5 小题：每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 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。 The Winner’s Guide to Success Do you know what makes people successful? To find out the answers, an American scholar recently visited some of the most successful people around the world. 36 Be responsible for yourself Sometimes you may want to blame others for your failure to get ahead. In fact, when you say someone or something outside of yourself is stopping you from making success, you?re giving away your own power. 37 Write a plan It is very difficult to try to get what you want without a good plan. It is just like trying to drive through strange roads to a city far away. 38 Without this “map”, you may waste your time, money and also your energy; while with the “map” you?ll enjoy the “trip” and get what you want in the shortest possible time. Be willing to pay the price 39 So you must be ready to work hard — even harder than you have ever done. If you are not willing to pay the price, you won?t get anything valuable. 40 It seems to us that everyone knows this. But it is easier said than done. When you are doing something, you must tell yourself again and again: Giving up is worse than failure because failure can be the mother of success, but giving up means the death of hope. A. You?re saying, “You have more control over my life than I do.” B. Nothing is easy to get. C. Someone else?s opinion of you doesn?t have to become your reality. D. Never give up. E. Some people achieve success much later in life. F. Here are some keys to success that they give G. A good plan is like a map to you.38 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出可以填入空白 处的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 We are often warned by our teacher not to waste precious time, because time _41_ will never return.

书面表达： Sleep in Class Ruins Our Future Quite a few students in our school sleep in class, and it is worse that they take it for granted . Perhaps they don?t know that sleep in class does harm to them . Now let me throw light on it . Sleep in class does terrible harm. Firstly, if a student sleeps in class, he / she can?t gain knowledge from their teachers . As a result, they are to fail to pass the college entrance examination one day. Secondly, those who always sleep in class make a bad impression on other students. They may be called “sleepyheads” for a long time. Last but not least, those who sleep in class may have more chances to catch a cold, which affects their health . In my opinion, we students should not sleep in class. Instead, we should concentrate on listening to our teachers in class. If some of us are sleepy in class, we may keep standing for a while until we?re energetic . 听力原文 Text 1 M: Jane, have you met David Brown? I think he is going to your school.

Her family left it years ago. Now I have stopped, and I am ringing the doorbell. Maybe whoever opens the door will be someone else, perhaps the housekeeper. I ring the bell again. It makes the same noise as fourteen years ago. I know now that nobody will come, and that seems right. Nobody could ever replace the nineteen-year-old girl, who used to open the door as quickly as possible. And always she was surprised, “It is you," as if she had expected somebody else, or has been afraid I wouldn't come.
