第二部分：阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下列短文，从每小题所给的四个选项(A. B. C 和 D) 中，选出最佳选项。
A friend of mine named Paul received an expensive car from his brother as a Christmas present．On Christmas Eve when Paul came out of his office，a street urchin(顽童) was walking around the shining car． “Is this your car， Paul？”he asked． Paul answered，“Yes，my brother gave it to me for Christmas.” The boy was surprised．“You mean your brother gave it to you and it didn't cost you anything？
Boy，I wish…” He hesitated(犹豫)． Of course Paul knew what he was going to wish for． He was going to wish he had a brother like that. But what the boy said surprised Paul greatly. “I wish,” the boy went on，“that I could be a brother like that.” Paul looked at the boy in surprise, then he said again, “Would you like to take a ride in my car ？” “Oh yes，I'd love that．” After a short ride， the boy turned and with his eyes shining， said， “Paul， would you mind driving in front of my house？” Paul smiled a little．He thought he knew what the boy wanted．He wanted to show his neighbors that he could ride home in a big car. But Paul was wrong again. “Will you stop where those two steps are？” the boy asked． He ran up to the steps. Then in a short while Paul heard him coming back, but he was not coming fast. He was carrying his little crippled(残疾) brother. He sat him down on the step and pointed to the car. “There she is, Buddy, just like I told you upstairs. His brother gave it to him for Christmas and it didn't cost him a cent. And some day I'm going to give you one just like it…then you can see for yourself all the nice things in the Christmas windows that I've been trying to tell you about.” Paul got out and lifted the boy to the front seat of his car. The shining-eyed older brother climbed in beside him and the three of them began an unforgettable holiday ride.
Many people take it for granted(认为…理所当然) that black is a color of bad things while white should always mean something good．This may be because, in their opinion, black is related to darkness and white to purity． However, that is not always the case．Did you know that the same one colour may mean differently in different places of the world?
In the English-speaking world, black is the colour of mourning(丧服)．People wear black clothes at the funeral．Red is concerned with danger or bloodshed (流 血)．Yellow is the word for fear．If you are afraid, you are yellow．Yet none of these sayings is true outside the English-speaking world．In China and Korea white is the colour of mourning． In Russia, China and some other countries, red stands for beauty, life and excellence （杰出） ． In Italy and Germany, you are yellow with anger, not with fear． Even within the English-speaking area it is not difficult to find colour contradictions (矛盾)． A redcap in the United States is a porter in a railway station ． In Britain, however, a redcap is a military policeman．Both names are logical because both men wear red caps．Similarly, the British term for an American white collar worker is sometimes called a black-coated worker． One does not have to cross an area to find color differences ．Would you rather be red-blooded? If we go back to the origin, we find that both terms are logical as both names suggest．The expression "blueblood" comes from Spain, where some noble families proudly said that they had "blue blood"．But then why “blue” blood? Because they were fair-skinned, and it is only natural that their blood vessels (血管) stood out appearing blue． 24. Yellow is concerned with anger in ______. A．Russia B．Britain C．China D． Germany 25. Both Britain and America would probably agree that ______. A．a redcap is a porter in a station B．black is the color of mourning C．a black-coated worker is employed in an office D．red stands for beauty and excellence 26. The best title for this passage is ______. A．The Development of the Symbolic（象征性的）Use of Colors B．The Meaning Concerned With Certain Colors C．Colors that Carry Bad Meanings D．The Origin(起源) of Blue Blood 27. When some Spanish called themselves “blueblood”, they actually meant ______. A．they had heart trouble and their faces looked blue B．they had blue blood in their vessels C．they were fair-skinned D．they came from a noble family
C New friends. Fresh lifestyle. Better career opportunities...Those are attractions of overseas study for young people in China. Start early, finish strong, some of them say. More than 300 universities from 27 countries and regions were represented at last weekend's international education exposition (展览).
The US has always been on the top destination list for Chinese students, with its high education standards and enough scholarship. Good news:It's easier to get a US student visa (签证) nowadays. Last year, the refusal rate was only 20 to 30 per cent, much lower than a few years before, according to US Embassy. Concerns: There're a lot to prepare. The TOFEL, GRE... It's longer time to apply to US universities than schools in the UK or Australia. Useful link: www. Usembassychina.org. cn
Easier access to visas and international environment are the UK's great attractions for Chinese students. Good news: There are many new scholarships this year, both from the government and universities, such as the Scotland International Scholarship. Concerns: Money. Money. Money.

Canada's multicultural environment is good for students' studies and careers. Good news: Students are allowed to take off-campus part-time jobs during their studies from last year. It'll help pay living expenses. Students can get two-year work permits after graduation. Concerns: Only a limited number of scholarships are available. They rarely cover the full cost of a study programme. Useful link: www. Studycanada. cn
Good climate, high quality education, favourable immigration (移民) policy: these make Australia one of the most popular choices among Chinese students. Good news: A new E-visa policy ensure a quick application process ( four weeks compared with 12 weeks before ) Concerns: Tuition fees (学费) have risen in past years. The total cost is about 200,000 yuan to attend a university located in big cities like Sydney or Melbourne. Useful link: www. Students. idp. com

Yes, there really is a job where you can get paid to taste ice-cream. Just ask John Harrison, an ＂ Official Taste Tester ＂ for the past 21 years. Testing helps manufacturers to be sure of a product’s quality. During his career Harrison has been responsible for approving large quantities of the sweet ice cream－－as well as for developing over 75 flavors (味道). Some people think that it would be easy to do this job: after all, you just have to like ice cream, right? No－－there’s more to the job than that, says Harrison, who has a degree in chemistry. He points out that a dairy or food-science degree would be very useful to someone wanting a career in this＂cool＂field. In a typical morning on the job, Harrison tastes and assesses 60 ice-cream samples. He lets the ice cream warm up to about 12℉. Harrison explains,＂You get more flavor from warmer ice cream, which is why some kids like to stir it, creating ice-cream soup.＂ While the ice cream warms up, Harrison looks over the samples and grades each one on its appearance.＂Tasting begins with the eyes,＂he explains. He checks to see if the ice cream is attractive and asks himself,＂Does the product have the color expected from that flavor?＂Next it’s time to taste! Continuing to think up new ideas, try out new flavors, and test samples from so many kinds of ice cream each day keeps Harrison busy but happy－－working at one cool job. 32. What is John Harrison’s job? A. An official. B. An ice-cream taster. C. A chemist. D. An ice-cream manufacturer. 33. According to John Harrison, to be qualified in the＂cool field＂, it is helpful to ______. A. keep a diary of work B. have a degree in related subjects C. have new ideas every day D. find out new flavors each day 34. What does Harrison do first when testing ice cream? A. He stirs the ice cream. B. He examines the color of the ice cream. C. He tastes the flavor of the ice cream. D. He lets the ice cream warm up. 35. Which of the following is probably the best title of the passage? A. Tasting with Eyes B. Flavors of Ice Cream C. John Harrison’s Life D. One Cool Job 第二节 七选五（共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分）

How can we all get more laughter into our lives? Here is what the experts
suggest: 36 . Nancy Alguire, a teacher in Clifton Park, N. Y., was once painfully shy and had a hard time laughing. Then she married a circus clown (小丑). “I became interested in the clowns,” she recalls “One day I put on a costume and paint my face. That afternoon my whole life changed. I learned to laugh and enjoy life in a way I had never done before.” 37 To this day, she still makes it a rule to be with people who enjoy life and laughing. 38 It doesn’t take you too much time and can be easy. Collect favorite cartoons and jokes. Also, keep a paper for writing down humor you find in everyday life. “Good ideas come and go fast, you have to capture them quickly or they are gone,” says Virginia Tooper. Laugh when you need it most. “39 ” says comedian Bill Cosby. “And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might by, you can survive it,” he insists. Gray Alan, a sociology professor at the University of Minnesota, claims that laughter is a skill we can all gain – because it comes naturally. 40 . Just remember: we are just here for a period, so get a few laughs. A．You can soften the worst blows through humor. B．Mix with people who laugh. C．Practise the art of laughing. D．Keep a laughter file. E．He who laughs last laughs best. F．But it’s also something that has to be developed. G．People’s joy can affect those around them. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完型填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题中所给的四个选项（ABCD）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。 Now I realize that the English idioms (习语) are very important.
