These are the Paralympics, the games for athletes with a disability. But in Beijing in 2008, for the first time, one of the greatest paralympians will not be taking part. She is a British athlete by the name of Tanni Grey-Thompson. Born with spine bifida（脊椎 裂） which left her paralysed from the waist down, Tanni used a wheelchair from the age of 7． At first, she was not keen on sport, apart from horse-riding, which gave her a sense of freedom. But in her teens, she started taking sports more seriously. She tried swimming, basketball and tennis. Eventually she found athletics, and never looked back. Indeed, Tanni’s athletic career took off. In 1984, when she was 15, she pulled off a surprise victory in the 100 metres at the Junior National Wheelchair Games. In 1988, Tanni went to her first Paralympic Games in Seoul. She won bronze in the 400 metres. Even greater success followed at the 1992 Barcelona Paralympies. Tanni won gold in the 100, 200, 400 and 800 metres relay, setting two world records in the process. In the same year she achieved the first of her six London Wheelchair Marathon victories. Tanni’s enduring success had been part motivation, part preparation, “The training I do enables me
to be a good sprinter（短跑运动员）, enables me to be good at a marathon too. I train 50 weeks of the year and that keeps me prepared for whatever distance I want to race... I am still competing at a very high level, but as I get older things get harder and I want to retire before I fall apart.” Indeed Tanni retired finally after the Visa Paralympic World Cup in 2007．Her wish is to coach young athletes for Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. In spite of ups and downs, she never takes her fate lying down. In her splendid life, she has won an amazing eleven gold medals, four silvers and one bronze in series of Paralympics－a top level athletic career covering two decades. She has won the London Wheelchair Marathon six times, more than any other competitor, and she has set over thirty world records. What advice does she have for young athletes? “Work hard at your studies, and then train, train and train again.” 33．Which of the following sports did Tanni like before thirteen? A．Basketball. B．Swimming. C．Tennis. D．Horse-riding. 34．When did Tanni win her first Olympic gold medal? A．In 1984． B．In 1988． C．In 1992．D．In 2007． 35．The underlined word “that” in the 5th paragraph refers to A．fifty weeks’ training B．being a good sprinter C．training almost every day D．part motivation and part preparation 36．What’s the right order of the events related to Tanni? a．She works as a coach. b．She took up athletics. c．She won four gold medals in Barcelona. d．She competed in her first Paralympic Games. e．She achieved a victory in her first London Wheelchair Marathon. A．b, d, c, e, a B．a, d, b, c, e C．a, d, c, e, b D．b, d, a, e, c 37．What can we learn from Tanni’s success? A．Union is strength. B．Everyone should spare no efforts. C．Well begun is half done. D．No pains, no gains. B Being considered a leader in our society is indeed of high praise. Leadership means power, commands respect and, most important, encourages achievement. Unlike vitamin C, leadership skills can’t be easily swallowed down. They must be carefully cultivated. Different from popular belief, most good leaders are made, not born. They learn their skills in their everyday lives. But which do they develop? How do they （and how can you） get others to follow? Always give credit. Many leaders note that the most efficient way to get a good performance from others is to treat them like heroes. Giving public credit to someone who has earned it is the best leadership technique in the world. It is also an act of generosity（慷慨）that’s never forgotten. Giving credit is more effective than even the most constructive criticism（批评）, which often hurts rather than helps. Kenneth Blanchard, the author of The One-Minute Manager, agrees. “Catch people doing something right!” he says. Then tell everyone about it. Take informed risks. “The best leaders know that taking a risk is not a thoughtless exercise,” says management adviser Marilyn Machlowitz. “Sky divers don’t go up in an airplane without checking the parachutes（降落伞）beforehand.” Because the idea of risk also carries with it the possibility of failure, many of us usually wait for others to take charge. But if you want to be a leader, you must learn to fail － and not die a thousand
deaths. Pick yourself up and start all over again. Encourage enthusiasm（热情）.“When people understand the importance of work, they lend their mental strengths,” says Lee Ducat. But when they get excited about the work, all their energy gets poured into the job. That’s a great force! Is this the best way to create excitement? Be enthusiastic yourself－ You will be followed by everyone. 38．The underlined word “cultivated” （paragraph 1） roughly means________. A．encouraged B．compared C．examined D．developed 39．The part “Always give credit” tells us that a leader should________. A．give helpful criticism B．regard others as real heroes C．praise people for their good performances D．praise everyone 40．To be a good leader, you should________. A．not be afraid of any risks B．think twice before taking risks C．try to avoid any possible failures D．know what a thoughtless exercise is 41．Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A．Leadership Is of Skills and Techniques B．Leadership Is Very Important C．Not Many Can Be Leaders D．How to Be a Leader 第二节: 信息匹配 阅读下列应用文及相关信息, 并按照要求匹配信息。 以下是广告信息: Applying for a Job A Needed: Full-time secretary position available.

Well, New York’s new law says you can’t. And you’ll be fined ＄100 if you do it on a New York city street. The law went into force last month, following the conclusion of a recent research that a shocking number of accidents are relevant to people using electronic gadgets （小玩意儿） when crossing the street. Who’s to blame? Scientists say that our multitasking abilities are limited. “We are under the impression that our brain can do more than it often can, ”says Rene Marois, a neuroscientist （精 神科学 家）in Tennessee. “But a core limitation is the inability to concentrate on two things at once.” The young are often considered the great multitaskers, but a research suggests this perception is open to question. A group of 18-to-21-year-olds and a group of 35-to-39-year-olds were given 90 seconds to translate images into numbers, using a simple code. The younger group did 10 percent better than the older group ________. But when both groups were interrupted by a phone call or an instant message, the older group matched the younger group in speed and accuracy. It is difficult to measure the productivity lost by multitaskers. But it is probably a lot. Jonathan
Spira, chief analyst at Basex, a business-research firm, estimates the cost of interruptions to the American economy at nearly ＄650 billion a year. The estimate is based on surveys with office workers. The surveys conclude that 28 percent of the worker’s time was spent on interruptions and recovery time before they returned to their main tasks. 11．What’s the purpose of writing this passage? （Please answer within 15 words.） ________________________________________________________________________ 12．Which sentence in the passage can be replaced by the following one? People take it for granted that young people are good multitaskers, however, the idea needs to be further proved, a research says. ________________________________________________________________________ 13．Please fill in the blank in the 4th paragraph with proper words or phrases to complete the sentence. （Please answer within 10 words. ） ________________________________________________________________________ 14．Are you a multitasker? What’s your opinion of New York’s new law? （Please answer within 30 words. ） ________________________________________________________________________ 15．Translate the underlined sentence in the second paragraph into Chinese. ________________________________________________________________________ 第三部分: 翻译句子（共 5 小题; 每小题 2 分, 满分 10 分） 根据中文意思和英语提示词翻译下列句子。 16．直到今天我还是不理解他们为什么这么做。 （make out） ________________________________________________________________________ 17．我会负责跟他们通电话并且通知他们。 （take the charge of） ________________________________________________________________________ 18．约翰考试前学习很刻苦, 因而得到了回报。 （pay off） ________________________________________________________________________ 19．每个家庭和办公室都需要最新的电子设备以赶上时代的步伐。 （keep up with） ________________________________________________________________________ 20．他已答应抚养他弟弟的孩子。 （commit） ________________________________________________________________________
