"If a woman goes for a job interview poorly dressed, she won't get the job, "Lublin says.” But without a job, she can't afford suitable clothes." So, with the money Lublin founded "Dress for Success' and began collecting women's clothes which were still in good condition but which their owners no longer needed.” So many women have clothes lying around that they will never wear again," one of Lublin's assistants says, "Nancy's idea is so simple and yet so important to women." Many women come to Lublin's office before going to a job interview. Here, they receive a suit, shoes and any other things they need, Since it was set up, more than 1,000 women have turned to "Dress for Success" for help. Many of them have won jobs. Some have found jobs after being out of work for many
years. Jenny, a 32-year-old woman who was recently hired as a law-firm office manager says, "I made a good impression because of 'Dress for Success’.” 21. What can we learn from the text? A. Nancy's grandfather lent her the money to set up the office. B. Nancy's office gathers used clothes from women C. Low-income women can get jobs at "Dress for Success" D. Nancy set up "Dress for Success" to make money 22. "Dress for Success" attracts many women because they_______ A. like to wear different clothes B. like the design of the dresses C. prefer buying clothes at a low price D. need to look smart when looking for a job 23. From what Jenny says, we know that ______. A. she got a lot of good ideas from Nancy B. she is working happily at her present job C. clothes from Nancy's office helped to get her a job D. "Dress for Success" has a good business relation with her firm 24. What would be a good title for the text? A. Keep Your Old Clothes B. A Helping Hand for Women C. Nancy: A Successful Law Student D. A Successful Clothing Business B. Why do men die earlier than women? The latest research makes it known that the reason could be that men's hearts go into rapid decline when they reach middle age. The largest study of the effects of aging on the heart has found that women's longevity may be linked to the fact that their hearts do not lose their pumping power with age. "We have found that the power of the male heart falls by 20-25 percent between 18 and 70 years of age," said the head of the study, David Goldspink of Liverpool John Moores University in the UK. "Within the heart there are millions of cells that enable it to beat. Between the age of 20 and 70, one-third of those cells die and are not replaced in men," said Goldspink. "This is part of the aging process. " What surprises scientists is that the female heart sees very little loss of these cells. A healthy 70-year-old woman's heart could perform almost as well as a 20-year-old one's. "This gender(性别的） difference might just explain why women live longer than men," said Goldspink. They studied more than 250 healthy men and women between the ages of 18 and 80, focusing on healthy persons to remove the confusing influence of disease. The team has yet to find why aging takes a greater loss on the male heart, said Goldspink. The good news is that men can improve the health of their heart with regular exercise. Goldspink stressed that women also need regular exercise to prevent their leg muscles becoming smaller and weaker as they age. 25. The underlined word "longevity" in the second paragraph probably refers to ____. A. health B. long life C. aging D. effect
26. The text mainly talks about ______. A. men's heart cells B. women's aging process C. the gender difference D. hearts and long life 27. If you want to live longer, you should ______. A. enable your heart to beat much faster B. find out the reason for aging C. exercise regularly to keep your heart health D. prevent your cells from being lost 28. According to the passage, the UK scientists have known that_______ A. Women can replace the cells that enable the heart to beat. B. The female heart loses few of the cells with age. C. the team has done something to prevent the male from suffering the greater loss D. women over 70 could lose more heart cells than those at the age of 20 C Five years ago, I was sent to a better middle school. For me, everything there was new and strange. After I had been there for two months, there was an important test in the middle of the term. It covered all my courses. In that test, I didn’t get a good grade, but most of my classmates got an A. It made me upset for a long time. I felt everything in the world was changing. I thought my classmates were all better than me. During those days I was very unhappy. One day, my aunt, after talking with my teachers, talked to me. She told me to think about what I had done in the past and what I should do in the future. I was shocked by her words. I thought about what I had done during the past months, and I found I had done nothing to improve my grades. I thought I should work harder. After that, I paid more attention to the teachers’ talking in the classes, and I asked my teachers or my classmates when I didn’t understand something. I studied very late at night when I met with difficult problems. Most of all, I came to understand the importance of taking notes in class. As a result, I did better in some tests. About three months later, the most important test came at the end of the term. This time, I stood out not only in my class but also in the grade. From then on, I have tried to do my best when I do something because I know if I want something, I should work hard for it. 29. Why did the writer fall behind in the new middle school? _________ A. Because the teachers didn’t treat him well enough.B. Because the subjects were becoming more difficult. C. Because he hated the life in the new school. D. Because he didn’t put his heart into study. 30. Which of the following studying methods helped the writer most?_________ A. Asking teachers for help when in difficulty. B. Working deep into the night every day. C. Making notes in class. D. Listening to every word his teachers said. 31. What does the underlined sentence in the last paragraph mean? __________ A. The writer failed again in the exam. B. The writer did very well in the exam. C. The writer became the cleverest in the class. D. The writer was very proud of his progress. D Now, it’s time for some brief news items.

To use English effectively, you need to understand the culture in which it is spoken. Here are a number of important tips to remember when speaking English in the United States. Conversation Tips Talk about location. 36 When speaking to strangers, ask them where they are from and then make a connection with that place. For example: “Oh, I have a friend who studied in Los Angeles. He says it’s a beautiful place to live in.” Most Americans will then willingly talk about their experiences living or visiting that particular city or area. Talk about work. 37 It’s not considered impolite and is a popular topic of discussion between
strangers. Talk about sports. Americans love sports! 38 When speaking about football, most Americans understand “American Football”, not soccer. 39 Many Americans prefer first names. Americans often prefer using first names, even when dealing with people in very different positions. Americans will generally say, “Call me Tom.” and then expect you to remain on a first name basis. Public Behavior Always shake hands. 40 This is true for both men and women. Other forms of greeting such as kissing on the cheeks is generally not appreciated. Smoking is Out! Smoking, even in public places, is strongly disapproved of by most Americans in the modern United States. A. Americans shake hands when greeting each other. B. Americans love to talk about location.

附：听力材料 Text 1 W: Would you like to study with us in the library? M: I’d rather study at home. Text 2 W: Has your sister bought her books yet? M: She bought a medical book. The Chinese and English textbooks were sold out. Text 3 M: Where have you put the video? I have to return it to John tomorrow. W: I’m sorry. I’ve lent it to my sister. I’ll get it back for you now. Text 4 M: Posters （海报）of the furniture show are everywhere. Have you been to the exhibition? W: I went there yesterday. It was well worth the time and money. M: I feel like going there but I’ve been very busy recently. Text 5 M: Nobody told me that Bill was in the hospital. W: Sorry. I meant to give you a call when I found out, but it slipped my mind（我忘了）. Text 6 W: What’s the matter, Richard? M: My back’s out again! W: Oh, no! You really should see a doctor this time. M: It’s a waste of time, honey. I won’t see a doctor unless I’m at death’s door. W: Well, I’ll go if I’m worried. No matter how busy I am. M: It’s different for women, honey. W: Don’t you believe it! Men think they can live forever. M: That’s why women live longer. W: Because women don’t have silly attitudes about seeing the doctor. Text 7 M: So tell me, Loni, is Harry ready for his trip? W: Yeah, he has finished packing this evening. M: Where is he now? W: Out with some friends. M: Well, we have to go to the airport at six tomorrow morning, so … Hey, what’s the matter? W: Jack, I’m a little nervous about Harry’s trip to Japan … I mean Japan is so far away. M: Come on, honey, he’s 22 years old. He’s got a great job, and he speaks a little Japanese. I’m sure he’s going to have a great time. W: But we won’t see him for one year! M: Don’t worry. The time will probably pass very quickly. Text 8
W: How important are friends to you, Bill? M: That’s kind of a strange question for this setting, don’t you think so? W: Well, the teacher hasn’t come in yet, class hasn’t begun, and I was just wondering about it. So, what do you think about friends? M: I’ve never regarded them as particularly important. Perhaps that’s because I come from a big family — two brothers and three sisters, and lots of cousins. That’s what’s really important to me. What about you? W: My situation, you know, is different, so I have different ideas. To me friendship is the most important thing in life. It’s more important than even love. If you love someone, you can always fall out of love again, and that can lead to a lot of hurt feelings and bitterness. But a good friend is a friend for life. Text 9 M: Susan, I could really need your help this weekend. W: What is it, John? Another term paper? M: No, no. This is easy compared to that. My cousin is coming on Thursday. She has an interview at the college and I promised my aunt I’d look after her. We are going to the game on Friday, but Saturday I’m on duty（值班） at the library all day and can’t get out of it. Uh, I was wondering if you could show her around during the day and maybe we can all meet for dinner later. W: Sure. I don’t have any plans. What kind of things does she like to do? M: Actually I haven’t seen her for three years, so I’m not quite sure about her hobbies. W: Well, there is a music festival in the auditorium(大礼堂）. That’s a possibility. Only I hope it doesn’t snow. They are predicting （预测） 6 ~ 8 inches for the weekend. Everything will be closed down （关闭） . Text 10 M: Good morning, boys and girls. I’m glad to tell you the worst holiday I experienced. Last August I went to Sacramento, USA. I’d been looking forward to it for ages, but in the end it turned out to be the worst holiday of my life. My mother was born there but she hadn’t been back for a visit for twenty years so she decided to come with me. When our plane touched down, I looked out of the window and gasped in shock. It was pouring down with rain! My mum said not to worry as the weather could change very quickly. In all （总共） , we spent two weeks in Sacramento. Believe it or not, the sun didn’t come out even once! Instead of going to the beach or sightseeing（观光）, we spent most days visiting museums and going shopping. It certainly was not the holiday that I had expected. 听力答案：BABCC ACACC BABAB ABABC 阅读 BDCB BDCB DCB CDAB BCFEA 完形 BDADC ACBDC BDABC ACCBD 单选 DBBBC DDABB 语法填空 71．and 72．felt 73．out 74．gone 76．to follow 77．Neither 78．pointing 79．what 单词拼写

At first I found it quite difficult . I couldn’t get most of the pronunciations right, spell new words correctly or remember the rules of grammar. With the help of my teachers and classmates, I have made great progress. Now I am getting on well with my English study. Six years’ study has taught me that one cannot learn English well without hard work.. We must do more listening and speaking both in and out of class. Enough attention should also be paid to reading and writing . Only in this way can we get the best results in the shortest time.
