阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项。 A Samuel de Champlain was a French explorer, navigator (航海家), and mapmaker. He explored much of eastern Canada and became known as the “Father of New France”. Born into a family of sailors, Champlain, while still a young man, began exploring North America. In 1603, he sailed up the Saguenay River and the St. Lawrence River. From 1604 to 1607 Champlain joined in the exploration and settlement of the first permanent (永久的) European settlement north of Florida. Then, in 1608, he established the French settlement that is now Quebec City. He also made the first accurate (精确的) map of the Canadian coast. Champlain spent most of the rest of his life going between France and Canada. His goals were to map North America and find a quicker way to get to the Pacific Ocean. In 1629 Quebec was controlled by the English and Champlain was taken to England as a prisoner. When Canada was returned to France in 1633 Champlain returned to Canada as governor of Quebec and remained in Quebec until his death on Christmas Day in 1635. 高一英语听力能力竞赛试题 第 3 页 共 8 页

Moab Music Festival C Sassoon, one of the best-known hairdressers of his generation, died on 9 May 2012. He was famous for his revolutionary haircuts in the 1960s, and developed popular hair products under his name. As the creator of the “bob” hair style, he was best known for his short, geometric (几何图形的) cuts, the style which succeeded the bouffant (蓬松的) styles of the 1950s. One of his best-known customers was Mary Quant, the famous British fashion designer who made the short skirt popular. Quant called Sassoon the “Chanel of hair”. “Like Columbus” British hairdresser and friend Nicky Clarke said he was a hugely important hairdresser. Before Sassoon’s arrival on the scene, he said, “people were putting their hair back. What he brought was a different kind of hairdressing. It was all about modern time — in some ways he explained the 60s. He helped to put Britain on the map.” Clarke said Sassoon was a “modest person” who “loved his skill”, and would be greatly missed. Hairstylist Angus Mitchell, son of the hairdresser Paul Mitchell, said that Sassoon’s system for 高一英语听力能力竞赛试题 第 5 页 共 8 页
cutting hair changed the business. “Sassoon was like Christopher Columbus,” Angus Mitchell, who studied under Sassoon, said. Four marriages Sassoon was born to Jewish parents in west London in 1928. His father left when he was five, and his mother had to put him and his brother into a Jewish orphanage (孤儿院) because she could not afford to keep them. In 1948, at the age of 20, he travelled to Israel to fight in the Arab-Israeli War. On his return to Britain, he began working for the famous hairstylist Teasy Weasy Raymond in Mayfair, before opening his own salon (沙龙) in 1954. “My idea was to cut shape into the hair and take away everything that was unnecessary,” Sassoon said in 1993 in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. His private life attracted as much attention as his business success. He had married three times before he married his fourth wife in 1992. 49. Which of the following was NOT done by Sassoon? A. Developing hair products under his name. B. Changing haircuts in the 1960s. C. Creating the “bob” hairstyle. D. Introducing the short skirt. 50. Angus Mitchell mentioned Christopher Columbus in his words to __________.

D Learning a foreign language can be a difficult task for most people. The degree of difficulty, however, differs from one person to another. Like studying any other subjects, we have to make an effort and put in the time. Besides, an individual’s learning ability can be determined by the following factors: My husband says I am a quick learner, but I easily forget new information, especially dates and figures. My husband spends more time learning a new subject but seldom forgets what he has learned. We’re exactly the opposite, and we represent the two basic kinds of learners. Some people can learn new information fast, while others have to work a little bit harder at it. Others remember new knowledge longer, like my husband, while others easily forget what they have just learned. How fast and well you learn new things are determined by your genes (基因) and your environment. My mother 高一英语听力能力竞赛试题 第 6 页 共 8 页
is a fast learner, while my husband has slow learning parents. The way we learn also differs. I like to write down what I’ve just learned. I also find that drawing diagrams (图表) works better for me. Compared with my husband, I hate memorizing data and definition (定义), for example, the definition of a family. I’d rather write down something like this: family = husband wife children. I remember things better when I can visually picture it in my mind, a mental picture or diagram. Determine your own learning ability by observing the way you learn new information, how fast you can learn it, and how long you can keep this new data. By doing so, you can choose the method best suited to your learning style. In my opinion, this is the most important factor in learning a foreign language: your drive to learn. As the saying goes, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” Different people are driven by different motivations (动机). I want to learn a new language because I find it challenging. Others may need to learn a foreign language because of having a new job or working in foreign countries. The point is to determine whether you truly need or just want to learn a foreign language. There’s a difference between the two. The first is a requirement which needs to be done immediately, while the latter can be delayed and will not influence your performance in your job directly. 53. What can we learn from the first paragraph? A. A person’s ability determines how he learns a foreign language. B. Effort and time play a key role in learning a foreign language. C. It’s not difficult for most people to learn a foreign language. D. Learning a foreign language isn’t the same for everyone. 54. Compared with the author, her husband _____. A. easily forgets new information B. likes memorizing data and figures C. has quick learning parents D. likes to draw diagrams 55. Which of the following affects people’s foreign language learning most? A. The degree of difficulty of the foreign language. B. The determination to overcome the difficulty. C. The motivation to learn a foreign language. D. The foreign language learning ability. 56. What is the author’s purpose in writing the passage? A. To share her experience in learning a foreign language. B. To analyze why people cannot learn a foreign language well. C. To tell us how to find the method of learning a foreign language. D. To introduce some factors which affect our language learning ability. E We can have conflicts (冲突) with some people that are important to us like friends, relatives, workmates, etc. But the conflict doesn’t necessarily mean that the relationship will be destroyed. In fact, sometimes conflicts help people to let out their silent feelings, allowing them to free their suppressed emotions (被抑制的情绪). However, when in conflict, we usually get angry and say or do things which are not linked to the problem at hand. Therefore, it is important that we should try to avoid conflicts through good communication. In a heated argument, we usually say things that aren’t related to the real problem, and even use 高一英语听力能力竞赛试题 第 7 页 共 8 页
bad language to make sure we gain an advantage over the other people. Then the whole situation worsens. So we should segregate (隔离) the root cause of the problem and build our discussion around it. This ensures that there’re no rude remarks and the situation moves in a positive direction. It’s easy for us to think we’re right and if something doesn’t work out, it surely must be someone else’s fault. However, if you want to solve a conflict, first of all, you should show respect for others and allow the other party to express themselves. Using remarks like “I understand your concern on this” or “I know you’re right at your end” would make the other person feel more appreciated. Sometimes some people get too excited and may behave in the wrong way or say something others may not appreciate. This can worsen the situation. Actually, they should control their emotions and keep calm. This has to be learned through self-control and observing behavior of other people. The tips mentioned above are useful in most situations. However, we don’t rule out the possibility that there are some people who always want to create some sort of trouble for others. You can tell them from others, and making an effort to end a conflict with them may just not be a wise idea. The best way to deal with these people is to forget them. A famous saying can help you and it is, “You should never fight with a pig; you both get dirty and only the pig likes it.” 57. What can we learn from Paragraph 1? A. Conflicts may help us deal with our emotions. B. Conflicts can improve our relationships with others greatly. C. Good communication may fail to prevent conflicts successfully. D. The closer two friends are, the more conflicts are between them. 58. When making discussions to solve conflicts, we should __________. A. know others’ personal quality B. know others’ ability of expression C. compare our strengths and weaknesses D. discuss around the root cause of the problem 59. In order to solve a conflict, what should we do first? A. Respect other people and listen to their opinions. B. Control our emotions and express our opinions carefully. C. Express we are sorry and guilty. D. Show our advantages and excuses. 60. In the author’s opinion, how should people deal with those who always want to create trouble? A. Fight with them. B. Ignore them. C. Have a talk with them. D. Give them something they like.
