You must be really bossy. I wonder what you?re going to be like to deal with?” That?s often the __36__ Angela Hult gets when people find out she?s an only child. Despite such __37__ remarks, Hult, like many other parents, has decided to have only one child herself. According to the US Statistics, women had a(n) __38__ of 1.9 children in 2004, compared with 3.1 for their counterparts in 1976. Numbers from the UK Statistics __39__ a similar trend across the Atlantic: the percentage of one-child families in Britain had __40__ from 18 percent in 1972 to 26 percent in 2007. But __41__ only children are becoming increasingly common, the traditional belief that they?re __42__, spoiled and lack social skills holds strong. Even parents of only children, like Hult, are made to feel __43__ about having only one child. __44__ that their children?s being selfish will endanger their future, they gather online __45__ advice. Soon, __46__, they ask themselves: is this social prejudice really justified? “There have been thousands of research studies that show that only children are no different from their __47__,” Susan Newman, a social psychologist, told ABC News. A perfect __48__ is Natalie Portman. “I had the only attention of my parents. And you know what? If I had had brothers or sisters I would have never become an actress,” she said. “My mother has __49__ me to every audition(试镜) and every acting class. With more children that would have never been possible.” This raises another question: why are only children still viewed with such __50__?
“There is a traditional belief __51__ to have just one child is somehow dangerous, both for you and for the __52__ of your race,” Toni Falbo, a professor of educational psychology, told The Guardian. “In the past a lot of children died. You?d have had to be __53__ to only have one.” Times, of course, have changed and infant mortality(死亡率) has largely been reduced. So what do only children themselves say? Kayley Kravitz, a blogger for The Huffington Post, grew up as a(n) __54__ child and highly values the experience. “Being an only child taught me the most valuable skill of all: the ability to be __55__,” she said. 36. A. reward B. praise C. response D. reply 37. A. negative B. positive C. objective D. supportive 38. A. total B. sum C. number D. average 39. A. prove B. analyze C. indicate D. declare 40.

Many people have heard stories like this. But the situation is more worrying still and it involves parents. Every child, regardless of the circumstances into which they are born, has the right to achieve their potential, regardless of their parents? wealth and class. And we recognize that, as a nation, it is a long way to achieve this goal. But with rights come responsibilities and what worries people is that we are in danger of neglecting the latter. Far too many children are behaving badly at school, even to the point of being violent to staff. This is terrible enough, but it is hard to be surprised since many children are just mirroring the behavior of their parents. My members tell me that parents also come into school often and threaten staff and some staff have been attacked by a pupil?s parents. One father encouraged his child to start a fight in the playground before school started. A primary teacher reported that a parent shouted at him. We need to have a serious and sensible debate about the roles and responsibilities of parents and the support that they can reasonably expect of schools and teachers. Children will not learn how to behave as social beings if they are stuck in front of the TV for hours every day. They need their parents to show an interest in them and to spend time with them, helping them to play with their friends and to learn the rules of social behavior. Children are now arriving at school socially undeveloped, increasingly unable to dress themselves, unable to use the toilet properly, unable to hold a knife and fork and unused to eating at a table. Mary Bousted, general secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, writes in today?s Observe. Instead of taking responsibility themselves, too many parents expect teachers to control their children?s behavior and wellbeing, she adds. Bousted says one mother blamed staff when she discovered that her 16-year-old son was smoking.
We are in danger of becoming a nation of families living separate lives under one roof. The bedroom, once a place to sleep, has become the living space for the young. Spending hours in front of computer screens, on social networking sites or being addicted to computer games, children and young people spend little time with their parents. Parents are unable to monitor just what their children are watching. Schools cannot fight the wrongs of society and teachers cannot become substitute parents. Both parties need to work together. Parents must be helped and given confidence to take back control. They are responsible for setting boundaries for their children?s behavior and sticking to those boundaries. They are responsible for setting a good example to their children and for devoting that most precious of resources—time—so that children come to school read and willing to learn. 56. In the opinion of the writer, what problem do people ignore? A. The violence in the school. B. The study pressure of students. C. The responsibilities of the students. D. The right to achieve students? potential. 57. The author?s attitude to the behavior of parents may be _________. A. dissatisfied B. indifferent C. understanding D. tolerant 58. From the last paragraph we can infer that __________. A. teachers have no responsibility for playing the role of parents B. schools can?t correct the wrongs that society does to teachers C. students are responsible for making themselves known in society D. parents should spend time with children to make them ready to learn 59. What is mainly discussed in the passage? A. Parents expect teachers to correct their children?s bad habits. B. Don?t blame teachers when it?s parents who are failing. C. There is no point in parents? educating children at home. D. Children?s behavior at school is worrying people.

And it appears that simply reading those words by William Wordsworth prove his point. Researchers at the University of Liverpool found the works of Shakespeare and Wordsworth and the like had a beneficial effect on the mind, lifting the readers? spirits by catching their attention and leading to moments of self-reflection. Using equipment, they examined the brain activity of volunteers as they read pieces of classical English literature both in their original form and in a more simplified, modern translation. And, according to the Sunday Telegraph, the experiment showed the more ?challenging? works set off far more electrical activity in the brain than the ordinary versions. The research also found poetry, in particular, increased activity in the right hemisphere of the brain, an area concerned with ?autobiographical memory?, which helped the reader to reflect on and reevaluate their own experiences in light of what they had read. The academics said this meant the classics were more useful than self-help books. The brain responses of 30 volunteers was monitored in the first part of the research as they read Shakespeare in its original and ?modern? form. In one example, volunteers read a line from King Lear, ?A father and a kind aged man: him have you madded?, before reading the simpler. ?A father and a kind aged man: him you have enraged(使暴怒)?. Shakespeare?s use of the adjective ?mad? as a verb caused a higher level of brain activity than the straightforward translation. ?Reading classics is not just a matter of style. It is a matter of deep versions of experience that promotes the cognitive ability,? said Prof Davis, who will present the findings at the North of England education conference in Sheffield this week. 63. What does the author suggest by saying “simply reading those words by William Wordsworth prove his point” in Para. 1? A. William Wordsworth?s poems are full of wisdom. B. It excites readers to read William Wordsworth?s poems.
C. Only gross and violent words can arouse people?s excitement. D. William Wordsworth?s poems are the application of gross and violent stimulants. 64. In what way did the researchers make their conclusion? A. By questionnaire. B. By online chatting. C. By lab experiment. D. By telephone interview. 65. According to the researchers at the University of Liverpool, reading classical works can benefit readers in _________. A. helping relieve their pressure B. helping them focus more on their work C. helping them think about themselves carefully D. helping keep their spirits up for a whole day 66. Which of the following sets off the most electrical activity in the brain? A. Reading nursery rhymes. B. Reading self-help books. C. Reading adapted version of King Lear. D. Reading Romeo And Juliet in Middle English.
D When she saw the gate of the new school, Totto-chan stopped. The gate of the school she used to go to had fine concrete pillars (支柱) with the name of the school in large characters. But the gate of this new school simply consisted of two rather short posts that still had twigs (细枝) and leaves on them. “This gate?s growing,” said Totto-chan. “It?ll probably go on growing till it?s taller than the telephone poles!” The two “gateposts” were clearly trees with roots. Suddenly she caught a glimpse of something that made her think she must be dreaming. She couldn?t believe her eyes. “Mother, is that really a train? There, on the school grounds!” For its classrooms, the school had made use of six abandoned railroad cars. To Totto-chan, it seemed something she might dream about. A school in a train! A moment later, Totto-chan let out a cry of joy and started running toward the “train school”, calling out to Mother over her shoulder, “I like this school. Come on! Let?s get on this train that?s standing still.” Shocked, Mother began to run after her. Mother had been on a basketball team once, so she was faster than Totto-chan and caught hold of her dress just as she reached a door. “You can?t go in yet,” said Mother, holding her back. “The cars are classrooms, and you haven?t even been accepted here yet. If you really want to get on this train, you?ll have to be nice and polite to the headmaster. We?re going to call on him now, and if all goes well, you?ll be able to go to this school. Do you understand?” Totto-chan was awfully disappointed not to get on the “train” right away, but she decided she had better do as Mother told her. “All right,” she said. And then she added, “I like this school a lot.” Mother took hold of her hand, and started walking toward the headmaster?s office. All the railroad cars were quiet, for the first classes of the day had begun. Instead of a wall, the not very spacious school grounds were surrounded by trees, and there were flower beds full of red and yellow flowers. The headmaster?s office wasn?t in a railroad car, but on the right-hand side of a one-story building that stood at the top of a semicircular flight of about seven stone steps opposite the gate. Totto-chan let go of Mother?s hand, raced up the steps, and then turned around abruptly, almost causing Mother to run into her. “What?s the matter?” Mother asked, fearing Totto-chan might have changed her mind about the school. Standing above her on the top step, Totto-chan whispered to Mother in all seriousness, “The man we?re going to see must be a stationmaster!” Mother had plenty of patience as well as a great sense of fun. She put her face close to Totto-chan?s and whispered, “Why?” Totto-chan whispered back, “You said he was the headmaster. But if he owns all these
trains, he must be a stationmaster.” Mother had to admit it was unusual for a school to make use of old railroad cars, but there was no time to explain. She simply said, “Why don?t you ask him yourself? And, anyway, what about Daddy? He plays the violin and owns several violins, but that doesn?t make our house a violin shop, does it?” “No, it doesn?t,” Totto-chan agreed, catching hold of Mother?s hand. 67. What can we learn about the new school according to the passage? A. The new school is famous for its “gateposts”. B. The characters on the school gate are quite large. C. The school gateposts are actually short. D. The headmaster of the school is a strange man.
68. What made Totto-chan interested in the new school? A. The fence of the new school. B. Her mother?s persuasion. C. The school?s unique classrooms. D. Her strong desire to study. 69. They arrived at the school _________. A. during the first classes B. after school was over C. to attend some classes D. to admire the school grounds 70. We can infer from the passage that Totto-chan is a(n) _________ girl. A. hardworking B. imaginative C. patient D. selfish

Terms such as independent travel or budget travel are often used interchangeably with backpacking. The factors that traditionally differ backpacking from other forms of tourism include but are not limited to the following: use of public transport as a means of travel, preference of youth hostels to traditional hotels, use of a backpack, an interest in meeting the locals as well as seeing the sights. The definition of a backpacker has developed as travelers from different cultures and regions take part and will continue to do so. Recent research has found that backpackers constitute different groups and have different senses and meanings related to their travel experiences. Backpacking as a lifestyle and as a business has grown greatly in the 2000s as low-cost airlines, hostels or budget accommodation become commonplace in many parts of the world, and digital communication and resources make planning, carrying out, and continuing a long-term backpacking trip easier than ever before. While there is no definitive answer as to the exact origin of backpacking, its roots can date, at least partially, from the Hippie trail(嬉皮形迹) of the 1960s and 1970s, which in turn followed sections of the old Silk Road. Technological changes and improvements have contributed to changes in backpacking. Traditionally backpackers did not travel with expensive equipment such as laptop computers, digital cameras and PDAs due to concerns about theft, damage, and additional luggage weight. However, the desire to stay connected with trends in lightweight electronics has led to the flash packing trend, which has been in a state of continuous development in recent years. Of importance in backpacking is a sense of authenticity. Backpacking is seen as being more than a vacation, as it is a means of education rather than the packaged version which is often associated with too much tourism, which has led to the idea that backpackers are anti-tourists. There is also the feeling of “acting in a stealthy (偷偷摸摸的) way” and witnessing real life involved more with local people.
Backpacking, like other forms of travel, remains controversial. Criticism comes from many sides, including the host countries and other travelers who disagree with the actions of backpackers although the opinion of backpackers seems to have improved as backpacking has become more usual. Eric Cohen notes that even though one of the primary aims of backpacking is to seek the real, the majority of backpackers spend most of their time talking with other backpackers and talks with locals are of “second importance”.

Two men are carrying water while two others are pouring water into the vat. It?s obvious that they fail to realize they?ll never store any water with so many loopholes at the bottom of the vat. This cartoon reminds me of the problems in our study. While studying, we always try to read more books and do more exercises. However, we seldom pay attention to the mistakes we?ve made, nor do we try to correct them. Therefore, “holes” are left without being dealt with. Day by day, the number of the “holes”, or rather the shortages, will be gradually on the rise. As a result, no matter how many new books we?ve read and how many exercises we have done, we have never actually mastered any knowledge. They have leaked out because of the holes we haven?t mended in time. So we should attach great importance to the mistakes we?ve made and try to correct them without delay. Only in this way can we acquire much knowledge and fill up our mind with it. 听力录音文稿： Text 1 W: Let?s go to bed early tonight. You are going to take a plane tomorrow, aren?t you?

You know how the traffic is this time of year. M: Oh. Mary?s a good driver. Have confidence in her. Text 4 W: Hello, what can I do for you? M: I?d like to pay my phone bill. W: What?s your telephone number? M: 6547-4123. W: 6547-4123. M: Your telephone bill this month is 104 RMB in total. W: Here it is. Text5 W: What?s your father?s name? M: Happy! W: What?s your mother?s name? M: Smile! W: Are you joking? M: No! That?s my sister! I am Kidding! Hahaha. Don?t take it seriously. Text6 W: Wonder what we should have for dinner this evening. M: Are you asking me?
W: Yes, I am. I really don?t feel much like cooking, but the family must eat. M: Well, you know me. I can always eat pizza—or spaghetti. W: So I?ll call for a take-away. By the way, you?re putting on a little weight, aren?t you? M: I know. Don?t remind me. I?m starting a new diet the day after tomorrow. W: It?s about time. Text7 W: Excuse me, is this seat taken? M: No, I don?t think so. W: Thanks. I am waiting for the train at 9 o?clock to Shanghai. Where will you go? M: What a coincidence! We will take the same train. W: Really? What is your seat number? M: No.5 on the second row. And you? W: I am on the third row, No.10. M: Could you please keep an eye on my luggage? I want to go to the washroom. W: No problem. M: Thank you so much. Text8 M: The service is really slow here. I?ve been trying to get the waiter?s attention for the last ten minutes. W: I hope he waits on us soon. I have a class at two o?clock. M: Me, too. I recognize that English book. You must be a student at the English Language Center. W: Yeah. I?m in the fourth course. Are you studying there? M: Yes, I?m in the fifth course. I took the fourth course last month. W: I just came here two weeks ago. Do you like the institute? M: It?s pretty good. I think I?ve learned a lot of English so far. W: Yeah. I only wish the classes were a little smaller, though, because we don?t get enough chance to talk. But I like my teachers a lot. M: How long are you going to be here? W: I guess a year, but sometimes I feel like going home tomorrow. M: You?ll get used to it. Where are you from? W: Saudi Arabia. How about you? M: Venezuela. I?m only staying here three more months. Then I go to Columbia University in New York. W: Oh, here comes the waiter. It looks like we?re going to get served after all. M: Good. I?m starving. Text9 W: What?s your ideal job in the future? M: I want to be an accountant very much. But it is very hard to get a certificate. And the company always requires an experienced accountant. W: Yeah, experience is key element for finding a job. Now that we are inexperienced, we should be more careful and work harder. M: Yes. Jessica, what about you? W: I want to enter the foreign companies, so before graduation, I have to improve my English. That?s very important for a successful job interview. M: Do you always want to work in the foreign ventures? W: No, I just want to accumulate some useful experience there. M: So will you start your own business then? W: Yes, you said it. I want to do my own business. But before that, some social experience and clients are necessary. M: You are always smart! W: Thank you! And at that time you can also come to my company. M: Yeah. W: You?ll be my personal assistant. M: Personal assistant? I don?t think you?ll be able to afford me. Text10 I?m Doug Johnson.
The winter holiday can be beautiful and bright. Christmas lights, boxes wrapped in pretty paper and excited children are everywhere. But it can be a difficult and demanding time, too. There is a lot of preparation for Christmas: shopping, cleaning, cooking and decorating. So today on our show we invite our listeners to slow down while we play holiday music released this year. That is “Pie Jesu” sung by ten-year-old Jackie of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Jackie was discovered earlier this year on the television show “America?s Got Talent”. She did not win the competition. But she did get a record deal. Her Christmas album, “O Holy Night”, came out November sixteenth. It has sold one million copies or more. Billboard magazine says Jackie is the country?s top-selling new artist. The number one album on Billboard?s Top Two Hundred is a holiday recording. Scottish singer Susan Boyle?s “The Gift” has been in that position for four weeks. Boyle launched her career in January of last year. She performed on the television show “Britain?s Got Talent.” Her performance was posted on YouTube. Her beautiful voice and shy personality got the attention of huge numbers of people. She became famous almost overnight. Finally let?s enjoy Susan?s singing “The First Noel” from her album, “The Gift.” (music) I?m Doug Johnson. I hope you enjoyed this holiday program.
