第三部分:阅读理解(共 9 小题,满分 18 分) 阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项 A、B、C、D 中,选出最佳选项。 A (福州五校联考)“Everybody loves a bargain.” is a well-known saying. One person's useless, ugly, or broken object can be another person's bargain. That is why so many Americans do not throw things away. They put them outside their house. They put on a "For Sale” sign. And, as simple as that, they have a yard sale. The sellers put a paid announcement in a local newspaper. It tells when and where the yard sale will take place. These sales are very popular during weekends in spring, summer, and autumn. Early in the morning, all the things to be sold are carried out of the house. Then they sit all day in the sunlight like tired guests at a party - waiting for someone to take them home. Just about anything can be sold at a yard sale. Sometimes, there are more clothes than anything else. Cooking equipment is also popular. So are old toys, tools, books, tables, and chairs. Then there are objects called "white elephants". A white elephant is something that you think is extremely ugly or useless. It may be an electric light shaped like a fish. You feel a sharp pain whenever you look at it. To someone else, however, it might be a thing of beauty and joy. Some people go to yard sales to find a special thing that they collect. It may be old toy trains, for

example, or paintings of dogs. Experts say more Americans are collecting old things now than ever before. Most people who go to yard sales, however, are not looking for anything special. They might buy an object simply because it costs so little. They enjoy negotiating over prices, even if they really do not need the object. Later, they may hold their own yard sale to sell all the things they have bought. 41. What kind of things will go to a yard sale? A. Cheap and ugly things. C. Things out of season. B. Things people no longer use. D. Things of great value.

42. A white elephant refers to__________. A. something that can cause a feeling of pain B. something disliked by the owners while appreciated by others C. something sold at the lowest price D. a toy shaped like a fish 43. Which of the following is NOT true about a yard sale? A. It may not be held when the weather is very cold. B. It can last for a whole day. C. It is usually held with a party. D. It is held outdoors. 44. We can infer from the last paragraph that __________. A. people may find something of great value on yard sale B. yard sales only attract those who have a low income

C. things on a yard sale can cost people a lot D. most people who go to yard sales want to make money B Heading off to college this year? in mind: Dress to impress: Stylist and business consultant Damela Smith says, “Girls should keep in mind that your college professors will often be the bridge that connects you to your future career and your classmates will become your professional network. You don't need to dress like you're going to the office, but you should display an ability to properly present yourself with appropriate maturity and confidence, and look put-together. " Logo mania (品牌狂热症): Wearing the logos of brands aimed at younger customers Here are some fashion tips from our experts you should keep

physically identifies you as part of that age group, so consider the targeted age group of the stores you shop at. It's tempting to load up on logos, especially well-known logos that signify high-end brands. But consider this: college is a time of self-discovery, a chance to develop your own personal style. Instead of wearing logos head to toe, "walking advertisement”-style, why not express who you really are? Wear real pants: The combination of leggings and baggy shirts is all too common on college campuses. Smith points out that leggings, yoga pants, and sweatpants are entirely unacceptable in public unless you’re exercising. Although leggings worn as pants are a common trend among high school and college girls, they are not an appropriate choice for daywear. As a young woman, your style

choice should begin to reflect your maturity level. So, get rid of leggings and wear real pants! Keep the cute factor to a minimum: Stay away from sweaters and T-shirts with smiling animals, cartoon characters, or Hello Kitty on them. Sure, kittens might be cute, but they're not doing you any favors in the style department. Dressing too cutesy can take years off your look, and not necessarily in a good way! 45. The second paragraph indicates the importance of __________. A. impressing professors B. getting on well with classmates D. dressing appropriately

C. creating a professional image

46. The author believes that college girls should __________ . A. choose a logo that suits their age C. use logos to show who they are B. try to load up on well-known logos D. find their identity by trying different logos

47. The author recommends wearing real pants because __________. A. leggings and baggy shirts are too common B. yoga pants and sweatpants are not so comfortable

C. real pants can present you with appropriate maturity D. people like real pants better than the other pants 48. What's the writer's attitude towards sweaters with animals on them? A. They make people look lovely. B. They are very fashionable these days. D. They are not suitable for college-aged students.

C. They will show you're an animal lover.

49. 1n which magazine would you most likely find this passage? A. Business Week. B. Parents. C. Style. D. Travel & Leisure.

第三部分:阅读理解(共 10 小题,满分 20 分)

阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项 A、B、C、D 中,选出最佳选项。 A (湖南十二校一次联考)The UK has a well-respected higher education system and some of the top universities and research institutions in the world. But to those who are new to it all, sometimes it can be confusing. October is usually the busiest month in the college calendar. Universities have something called Freshers' Week for their newcomers. It's a great opportunity to make new friends, join lots of clubs and settle into university life. However, having just left the contort of home and all your friends behind, the prospect(前景)of meeting lots of strangers in big halls can be nerve-wracking (令人焦虑不安的). Where do you start? Who should you make friends with? Which clubs should you join? Luckily, there will be thousands of others in the same boat as you worrying about starting their university social life on the right foot. So just take it all in slowly. Don't rush into anything that you'll regret for the next three years. Here is some top advice from past students on how to survive Freshers' Week: ●Learn rules. Make sure you know British social etiquette (礼节). Have a few wine glasses and snacks handy for your housemates and friends. ●Be kind. Sometimes cups of tea or even slices of toast can give you a head start in making friends.

●Be sociable. The more active you are, the more likely you'll be to meet new people than if you're someone who never leaves his room. ●Bring a doorstop. Keep your door open when you're in and that sends positive messages to your neighbors that you're friendly. So with a bit of clever planning and effort, Freshers' Week can give you a great start to your university life and soon you'll be passing on your experience to next year's new recruits. 31. Which of the following statements is FALSE according to the passage? A. October is generally the busiest month for universities. B. It's a good idea to put a doorstop in your door. C. A bit of planning can make Freshers' Week easier. D. The first week of your every year at university is called Freshers' Week. 32. The underlined word “recruits” in the last paragraph refers to __________. A. courses B. freshers C. neighbors D. challenges 33. We can infer from the 4th paragraph that __________ . A. the newcomers usually miss the days living at home B. most of the students in the UK spend three years in universities C. many freshers are worried about how to fit university life D. all the new students will make new friends and join certain clubs 34. Why does the author suggest having wine glasses and snacks handy? A. To pass the busy university life.

B. To help make friends with other freshers. C. To show yourself a drinker as others. D. To pass the time in a happy way. 35. The main purpose of the passage is to __________ A. tell the newcomers how to make a new start in universities B. introduce something about higher education system of the UK C. discuss something about the Freshers' Week in the UK D. advise the freshmen how to behave well in the beginning B Celebrities (名人) have become a powerful influence on some people because of their social position and their economic situation. First, some people admire and imitate stars because they allow themselves to be influenced by the media. Television, radio, and magazines invade (侵扰) the lives of audience with a variety of shows, information, and publications about stars and their lives. For instance, Britney Spears has become the target of paparazzi (狗仔队). In May, Britney appeared at the front page of the most popular magazines revealing that she married her best friend in Vegas, Nevada. Media also invade stars' lives because reporters know they get high profits from readers who buy and follow their favorite artists' news. Second, some mad audience imitate their celebrities for their lack of confidence. Some people who are shy and lack personality may find that imitating others will cause a good impression. For instance, my cousin Jenny, who lacks a social life because of her introverted (内向的) personality,

believes that acting and dressing like Jennifer Lopez will make her popular in high school. Finally, several fans of stars imitate them because of peer (同龄人) pressure. Since my niece's girl friends formed an Antonio Banderas' fan club, she had also joined the group. Although she wasn't a huge fan of his, now she collects most of Banderas' possessions. In fact, when I asked Arianna, my niece, why she was part of Banderas' fan club, she replied with a doubtful tone that she did not wish to be rejected by the other teens. In conclusion, it is true that celebrities play spectacular roles in their performances in Hollywood, which entertains many people all over the world; however, modern celebrities influence the audience to the point where their fans admire and try to imitate their lives. 36. What does the passage mainly tell us? A. Why people are influenced by celebrities. B. The harmful influence of celebrities. D. How to avoid the influence of celebrities.

C. What kind of people are influenced by celebrities. 37. We can infer from Paragraph 2 that __________. A. media are on the side of stars

B. stars know how to take advantage of media D. media invade stars' lives for their own good

C. media can give wrong information about stars

38. Jenny acts and dresses like Jennifer Lopez because __________. A. she admires Jennifer Lopez's personality C. she wants to change her own personality B. she wants to become famous too D. she lacks self-confidence

39. Arianna joined the Antonio Banderas' fan club to __________. A. seek encouragement from the star B. be accepted by other teens

C. become a real fan of the star

D. learn more about the star

40. The author of the passage probably believes that __________. A. it's easy for people to resist the influence of celebrities B. all young people are easily influenced by celebrities C. it's no good for people to imitate celebrities blindly D. people can improve their personality by imitating their favorite stars 笫四部分:书面表达(满分 25 分) (江西八校联考) 当前青少年彰显个性的行为和独特的价值观引起了人们的忧虑。 你作为青 少年的一员,有意向校广播就此现象写一篇演讲稿。要点如下:

第三部分:阅读理解

A If English means endless new words, difficult grammar and sometimes strange pronunciation, you are wrong. Haven't you noticed that you have become smarter since you started to learn a language? According to a new study by a British university, learning a second language can lead to an increase in your brain power. Researchers found that learning other languages changes grey matter. This is the area of the brain which processes information. It is similar to the way that exercise builds muscles. The study also found the younger people learn a second language, the better the effect is. A team led by Dr. Andrea Mechelli, from University College London, took a group of Britons who only spoke English. They were compared with a group of "early bilinguals" who had learnt a second language before the age of five, as well as a number of later learners. Scans showed that grey matter density (密度) in the brain was greater in bilinguals than in people without a second language. But the longer a person waited before mastering a new language, the smaller the difference was. "Our findings suggest that the structure of the brain is changed by the experience of learning a second language," said the scientists. It means that the change itself increases the ability to learn. Professor Dylan Vaughan Jones of the University of Wales, has researched the link between bilingualism and maths skills. "Having two languages gives you two windows on the world and makes the brain more flexible," he said. "You are actually going beyond language and have a better

understanding of different ideas.” The findings were matched in a study of native Italian speakers who had learned English as a second language between two and 34. Reading, writing, and comprehension were all tested. The results showed that the younger they started to learn, the better. "Studying a language means you get an entrance to another world," explained the scientists. 31. The main subject talked about in this passage is __________ . A. science on learning a second language B. man's ability of learning a second language D. language learning and maths study

C. findings that language learning can help brain power

32. rife last sentence of the second paragraph is intended to __________ . A. say language learning is also a kind of physical labor B. prove that one needs more practice when he (she) is learning a language C. show the importance of using it when you learn a language D. make people believe language learning helps grey matter work well 33. We may know from the scientific findings that __________ . A. the earlier you start to learn a second language, the higher the grey matter density is B. there is no difference between a later second language learner and one who doesn't know a second language C. the experience of learning a second language has bad effect on people's brain D. the ability of learning a second language is changing all the time 34. The underlined word "bilinguals" probably means __________ .

A. researchers on language learning C. people who can speak two languages

B. people who are good at learning foreign languages D. active language learners B

The multi-million pound new Library of Birmingham (LoB) will be the most visible sign of the way the city is accepting the digitalization (数字化) of everyday life. Set to open in 2013, the £ 188m LoB is already beginning to take shape next to the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, with which it will share some equipment. As digital media(媒介) is important to its idea, the project is already providing chances for some of the many small new local companies working at the new technologies. Brian Gambles, the LoB project director, says it is about giving people the fight tools for learning:" The aim is to mix the physical with the digital, providing 24-hour services which can be used through many different ways. It is important to enable us to reach more people, more effectively. " The digital library will, he says, be as important as the physical one; allowing the distant use of the services, making sure that it is never closed to the public. Even before the LoB is complete, the public has been able to go online to visit the Virtual ( 虚拟 的) LoB, designed by Baden, the Birmingham virtual worlds specialists. Not only have the publicbeen able to learn about the LoB, but the virtual one has also enabled those working on the LoB to understand the building and how it will work before it even opens. Two other small Birmingham-based digital companies are also working on the LoB projects. Substrat, a digital design company, is developing what it calls an example of an "enlarged reality"

project. It is about the use of an exciting smart phone, an important part of the LOB which is in the early stages of development. And The People's Archive is an online library of historical figures of the city being built up by a digital content company in Cahoots, in which users will be encouraged to add to and comment on the material. Gambles says: "Technology will enable us to make the library's content and services open to citizens as never before.” 35.

第三部分:阅读理解 A When Josephine Cooper was growing up, she learned the importance of charity from her parents. Although they made a modest living for their family of 10, they insisted on sharing with those less fortunate. Half a century later, Mrs. Cooper became a beloved volunteer at the San Diego Food Bank, where she devoted herself to helping others. She organized and ran a distribution center of a church, helping it become the organization's largest emergency food distribution center in San Diego. She was one of the 25 outstanding senior volunteers in the nation selected and invited to Washington D. C. to receive an award. "She was the main person who helped us make that program grow," said Mike Doody, former director of the Food Bank. "She had a way of getting people to work together and to work hard. She was determined and stubborn, but in a good way. She had a good heart. “People knew her as "Grandma" because of her selflessness and her devotion to helping hungry children and families. "She reminded people of their Grandma," Doody said. As a widow with a young child in 1979, Mrs. Cooper was helped through a difficult financial time when the Food Bank provided her with groceries. "She devoted her life to giving back," said her

daughter, Monica Cooper. It wasn't unusual for a local church to call Mrs. Cooper to ask her to aid a needy family. "She would give people food out of her cupboard. Sometimes we would cook a meal for a family living in their car," Cooper said. Although Mrs. Cooper was honored to receive the national award for her volunteer work, she said being able to help others was her reward. She died of liver disease and kidney failure, aged 93. 41.

Canyonlands National Park, a famous tourist attraction in Utah where visitors can see arches and other beautiful rock formations ( 形成物), is a wild, lonely area of rocks, rivers and desert plants. Only native Americans, cowboys, and explorers entered this area before the park was set up iff 1964. Even today, it is difficult to walk or ride through the park. The roads are still made of dirt. Driving requires a special vehicle. The National Park Service says Canyonlands National Park is wild America. Rivers created the area as they cut rocks into many different formations. At the center of the park are two deep canyons carved by Green and Colorado Rivers. Three areas that surround these rivers are included in the park. One of these areas is called the Maze District. This area includes rock art made by people who lived there more than 2,000 years ago. Yet many people today cannot see the Maze District because it is so difficult to reach. The area is one of the loneliest and wildest in the United States. Another area of the park is called the Needles. It includes long, thin, red and white rocks that reach high into the air like fingers on a hand. A good way to see all the areas of Canyonlands National Park is to fly over it. A one-hour trip in a small airplane makes it possible to see the park’s red rocks, flat areas where ancient Indian people once lived. From high in the air, visitors can clearly see the third area of the park a high broad flat rock known as the Island in the sky. The island was formed between two rivers. Another interesting formation is called the Upheaval Dome. This is a huge hole about 450 meters deep and 1.5 kilometers wide. It is considered to be the most unusual geologic( 地质的)

structure in the area. 46. Why is Canyonlands National Park referred to as wild America? A. No vehicle is available to go through the park. B. The park today still remains as it was in the past. C. There are a variety of wild animals and plants in it. D. The dirt roads make it hard for anyone to approach. 47. What do we know about the Maze District? A. No one is allowed to explore the area. C. Its rock art dates back over 2,000 years. B. It remains unknown to the outside world. D. It is the loneliest and wildest place in the world.

48. How can the tourists enjoy a good sightseeing according to the passage? A. By air. B. By car. C. By water. D. On foot.

第三部分:阅读理解 A Decision-making can be extremely difficult. Decision-making styles are significantly different in different cultures. In any approach to a problem and in any negotiations, the Western world turns to the "I to you" approach while Japan, the "you to you" approach. The former means both sides present their arguments openly from their own point of view. Naturally, often comes a confrontation (冲突) situation, which the Westerners are very skillful in dealing with. The latter is based on each side trying to understand the other person's point of view. Thus, the direction of the meeting is a mutual (相互的) attempt to reduce confrontation and achieve harmony. Besides, Western decision-making goes mostly from top management and often does not consult

middle management or the workers. However, in Japan great consideration is given to the thoughts and opinions of everyone at all levels. Based on "bottom-up direction", ideas can be created at the lowest levels, travel upward through an organization and have an effect on the final decision. Difference in decision-making also comes from different communication styles. The Japanese business person works to achieve harmony, even if the deal falls through, and will spend whatever time is necessary to determine a "you to you" approach, communicating personal views only indirectly. They put a thorough job above the Western deadline approach. So the Japanese is thorough in their meetings. Thus Americans are often annoyed by the many meetings in many Japanese businesses. But where the American is pressing for a specific decision, the Japanese is trying to think up a rather broad direction. On the other hand, once a given agreement is made, it is the Japanese who sometimes wonders at the slow pace in which the Westerners carry out the decision. The Japanese is eager to move forward and the Westerners, perhaps, lag (落后于) behind as they take the time for in-depth planning. 31. A Japanese business bases its decision __________ . A. on top-down direction C. on bottom-up direction B. on nothing but its workers' views D. only on its top leaders' opinions

32. The text mainly tells us that Japan and the Western world __________ . A. face great difficulty in making decisions C. have all members contribute to a decision D. have two approaches: “I to you” and "you to I" 33. Which of the following is TRUE of the Westerners? B. are different in decision-making styles

A. They carry out the decision once it is made. C. They work to achieve harmony in doing business. D. They are good at handling confrontation situation.

B. There are many meetings in their businesses.

34. The author's attitude towards Japanese decision-making is __________ . A. positive B. critical C. negative D. casual B Whether it's a carol (圣诞颂歌) service or an evening of karaoke in the pub, many people will enjoy a good old singsong this Christmas. Singing aloud will not just lift the spirits it's good for your

physical health as well. Filling the lungs with air, increasing the heart rate and getting blood pumping round the body faster can all help our physical health. For the past few years Heart Research UK has been running a Christmas campaign aimed at getting people singing, simply for the benefit it can bring. The organizer of the campaign says singing is a safe, simple and social activity that everyone can enjoy. "Singing is linked to long life, stress reduction, and general health protection. It also brings a great amount of happiness. It is impossible to sing well with a long face because it affects your pitch (音高). " Professor Graham Welch, who leads the International Music Education Research Centre at the University of London, has spent more than 30 years studying the effects of singing. He says that singing is a form of exercise. It means we're also having a strong aerobic activity (有氧运动) when we're singing, which results in increasing the feeling of pleasure while decreasing that of stress. "And communal singing—like in a singing group, a church service or even a singsong in the

pub—helps improve our sense of self-respect. It increases our sense of satisfaction with ourselves, a greater sense of feeling included. " Helen Astrid, a singing teacher, also sees the great effects that singing brings. "It lifts us up on a spiritual level, it helps our self-respect, and it's great for all ages from small kids to grannies—you can have a good sing and let your hair down.” But she warns people not to have too many beers or glasses of wine, though a glass may help them gather courage before taking to the stage during the holidays. 35.

第三部分:阅读理解 A Since 1984, Philadelphia has been cleaning up its act. One by one, graffiti-covered walls are being changed into outdoor art. So far, more than 1,800 murals () have been painted. Philadelphia now has more murals than any other American city. The walls that were once ugly with graffiti (涂鸦) are now covered with beautiful pictures of

historical heroes and modern art, thanks to the Mural Arts Program (MAP). Its work makes schools and public places attractive, and its citizens very proud. The program began as part of Philadelphia's Anti-Graffiti Network. Jane Golden is the MAP's artistic director. "When people ask me what our program is about," she says, "I answer them with one word: hope. "Each year, the MAP offers youth art programs and workshops~ Some one-time graffiti writers even help paint MAP murals. The MAP's work, says Golden, is all about developing a sense of community ( 社区). When a neighborhood requests a mural, the MAP works with the people there to develop a message. Some messages have been "Safe Streets”, "Love and Care", and "Peace Walk". The MAP receives up to 50 requests for murals each week. Last year, the workers painted 140 murals. "The making of a mural enters people's collective memory as an extraordinary, pleasant moment in neighborhood history," says Golden, who began as a muralist in Los Angeles. 41.

B Jeffrey Bezos, the founder, president and chairman of the board of Amazon. com, was born in Albuquerque,New Mexico.

Jeffrey spent most summers of his youth working with his grandfather on their farm. Jeffrey showed intense and varied scientific interests at an early age. He set up an electric alarm to keep his younger sisters and brothers out of his room and changed his parents' garage into a laboratory for his science projects. After he graduated from Princeton University with a degree in computer science and electrical engineering, Jeffrey Bezos found employment on Wall Street, where computer science was increasingly in demand to study market trends.

P16 leave the office. Each of the people involved in a Web conference will be posted an invitation to the conference with the time and date of the Web conference on it. When the conference is ready to begin,

all participants(参与者) must sit at their computers and they will be connected over the Internet. With Web conferencing all participants attend the conference from the comfort of their own desk. Obviously, in doing this no fuel is used in traveling to and from a conference, and less work time is taken up in attending a conference. Any material to be used during Web conferencing is simply e-mailed to all the participants before the conference. Participants can then either choose to print material or read it on screen. This not only saves paper but also greatly reduces mailing costs for the business. As a conference hall or business center isn't being used, it means that the only power that is used is the power used by the participants' personal computers. Similarly conference organizers don't have to arrange for food or overnight accommodation(住宿) for participants of their conferences. All this means that less energy is used. Often in business some companies actively choose to do business with other companies that do many things to reduce their negative impact on the environment. And Web conferencing helps you show other businesses that you are willing to work hard for the green cause. So Web conferencing is much cheaper and greener and more people are willing to host and attend a Web conference. 31. What is the passage mainly about? A. Ways of protecting the environment. C. Ways of hosting a Web conference. B. Green benefits of Web conferencing. D. Impact of Web conferencing on costs.

32. According to Paragraph l, many companies use Web conferencing because they __________ .

A. are interested in using any new technology B. believe that Web conferencing is more convenient C. want to do something to protect the environment D. haven't enough money to hold a traditional conference 33. The participants of a Web conference __________. A. will be e-mailed an invitation before the conference B. are required to sit in an office together C. will receive many paper material D. must have access to the Internet

34. Which of the following words best describes the author's opinion about a Web conference? A. Useless. B. Environmentally friendly. C. Inconvenient. B Many people think of dirt as being, well, dirty! Parents often tell their children not to play in dirt or to get it on their clothes. And there are good reasons to be wary — soil often contains bacteria, parasites and pollutants that can make people sick. With so many risks, it is no surprise that many people find geophagy — literally the eating of earth or soil — unappetizing. Yet, since people tend to be very selective about which soils they eat, the practice has also created a thriving industry. In Nigeria, the village of Uzalla annually processes over 500 tons of its prized soil for sale and consumption in markets hundreds of kilometers away. Geophagy also has a long history in the U. S. , where some eat clay and ship packages of it to relatives far from home. Soil is also sold as a nutritional supplement, similar to vitamins, in some parts of Asia. D. Money-consuming.

The fact that the eating of soil is also widespread in the animal kingdom suggests that geophagy may even be a natural process. Some soils are surprisingly rich in minerals and nutrients such as iron and copper. People can often get more of these nutrients from geophagy than from taking vitamin supplements. This may be why geophagists often claim to like the "sour taste" of dirt and to have desire for it. It may also explain why geophagy is often most common among pregnant women and nursing mothers. In some cases, soil can make dangerous foods safe to consume. People have long known that certain poisonous wild acorn. s and potatoes become edible when mixed with soil. Sometimes, soil is even taken as medicine! Many stomach medications contain the clay

Kaolin because it absorbs bacteria and toxins that cause diarrhea (腹泻) . Unfortunately, geophagy is also practiced to avoid hunger pains when other food is scarce. Iri poor countries, food can become so expensive that people substitute soil for flour or rice. This is a serious social problem because even mineralrich soils can't provide a balanced diet. Eating dirt may not be key to a healthy diet, but sometimes it may not be so bad after all. 35. What does the underlined word “wary” mean in Paragraph l? A. ignorable B. cautious C. indifferent D. relieved

36. 1n the 2nd paragraph, many examples about eating soils are listed to demonstrate that __________ . A. soils are definitely good for our health B. soils are popular with people throughout the world C. soil-eating is a relatively common practice in many parts of the world

D. soils are so nutritional that it can take the place of other food 37. It can be known that __________ . A. all the soils are richer in minerals than vitamin supplements B. some pregnant women and nursing mothers prefer soil eating for its tastes C. soil has a magic power to absorb the poison in all the dangerous food D. even in some rich countries people like to take soil as the main food 38. What's the author's attitude towards eating soil? A. Critical. B. Appreciative. C. Neutral. D. Supportive.

39. What is the purpose of the passage? A. To encourage people to eat soils. B. To introduce the importance of soil.

C. To clarify the misunderstanding about soil-eating. D. To compare the nutrition of soil with that of other food. 第四部分:书面表达(满分 25 分) (福建四地六校第三次联考)根据右图为某英语杂志写一篇题为¨ The importance of communication¨ 的文章,描述右边的漫画内容并谈谈自己的观点。 注意:1. 词数 120 左右。 2. 描述图片。 3. 简单举例表达个人观点。 4. 结构完整,语意连贯。 热点集训 5 动词和动词词组(II)

He wrote plays and poems during the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, which remain very popular today. During earlier times, people would probably have learned several ancient Roman and Greek plays. It was not unusual for writers to produce more current versions of these works. For example, in Shakespeare's play "The Comedy of Errors" Shakespeare borrowed certain details from the ancient Roman writer Plautus. For his play "Macbeth", Shakespeare most likely used a work on Scottish history by Raphael Holinshed for information. Shakespeare might have borrowed from other writers, but the intensity of his imagination and language made the plays his own. While many plays by other writers of his time have been forgotten, Shakespeare and his art live on. Shakespeare was also influenced by the world around him. He described the sights and sounds of London in his plays. His works include observations about political struggles, the fear of diseases, and the popular language of the city's tradesmen. Shakespeare's knowledge of the English countryside is D. Billy Lids does not offer service on Sunday

also clear. His works include descriptions of deep forests, local flowers, and the ancient popular traditions of rural people. It would be impossible to list all of the ways in which Shakespeare's works have influenced the world culture. But the first and greatest example would be his great influence on the English language. During his time, the English language was changing. Many new words from other languages were being added. Shakespeare used his sharp mind and poetic (富有诗意的) inventiveness to create hundreds of new words and rework old ones. For example, he created the noun forms of "critic" "mountaineer" and "eyeball" Many common expressions in English come from his plays, including "pomp and circumstance (隆重的仪式)" from "Othello" , "full circle ( 绕圈子 )" from "King Lear" , etc. The list of cultural creations influenced by Shakespeare is almost endless. From paintings to television to music and dance, Shakespeare was well represented. Shakespeare's plays have been translated into every major language in the world. Shakespeare became a well-known writer during a golden age of theater. His years of hard work paid off. 44. What can we infer from the passage? A.

第三部分:阅读理解 A WHAT can help you make a fortune in the future? Graduating from a top university might not be enough. A new study from the University of Essex in Britain has shown that the more friends you have in school, the more money you'll earn later. The idea that popularity could have a serious influence on one's earning potential shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. The researchers noted that if you want to get ahead in life, social skills and networking are easily as powerful as talent and hard work. "If a person has lots of friends, it means that he or she has the ability to get along with others in all kinds of different situations," said Xu Yanchun, 17, from Nantou High School in Shenzhen, who totally agreed with the recent finding. "Also, friends always help each other. They not only create wider social circles for you but lift your mood when you are occasionally in low spirits," said Xu. She believed that all this helps you "earn a higher salary".

Maybe that's why some people think the younger generations are in the age of Friendaholism ( 交友狂症) ? A woman even complained that the networking website Facebook's 5,000-friend limit was too low for her large reserve of social contacts. But what does a friend mean? Should friends be regarded as a form of currency? "Call me uncool, but I think of a friend as an actual person with whom I have an actual history and whom I enjoy actually seeing. It seems, however, that this is no longer the definition of a friend," said Meghan Daum, who works with the Los Angeles Times in the US. Daum dislikes the idea that quantity trumps quality in the age of Friendaholism. She thought the idea of friendship, at least among the growing population of Internet social networkers, was to get as many of not-really-friends as possible. For example, a friend might be someone you might know personally but who could just as easily be the friend of a friend of some other Facebook friend you don't actually know. Although she agreed that social ties grease ( 润滑) the wheels of life, she also warned, "Too bad one thing money can't buy is a real friend. " 31. What can friends do in the eyes of Xu Yanchun? A. They can help you with your schoolwork. B. They teach you how to make more money. C. They help you to get rid of sadness and cheer up. D. They introduce their friends to you. 32. What will be needed if you are to achieve success according to the researchers? A. Social skills, friends, good mood and fortune.

B. Social skills, networking, talent and hard work. C. Social skills, networking, potential and fortune. D. Social skills, talent, hard work and Facebook. 33. We learn that Meghan Daum's attitude towards friends is somewhat _________ . A. up-to-date B. optimistic C. confused D. traditional

34. What does the word "tromps" in the last paragraph mean? A. is better than B. is equal to B The website "FarmersOnly.com" calls itself on line dating and friendship finder. The idea started in the mind of a man, Jerry Miller in Ohio. He wondered how farmers could meet new people who understand the life of a farmer. Jerry Miller is not a farmer but he represents a lot of farmers. As he tells it, the idea for the site was planted when a farmer told him one day that she was recently divorced and would like to date. But someone would invite her to meet for coffee at nine o'clock at night, when she had to start her day at five the next morning. So, in 2005, Jerry Miller launched his website. "You don't have to be a farmer to be on "FarmersOnly.com", but you do have to have the good old-fashioned traditional values of America's heartland.” You also have to live in the United States or Canada to be a member of the site. Some services are free, but a full membership costs fifty dollars for a year. As of last week the site listed more than 58,000 members. Many of them are farmers in the United States. Others are students or workers C. is worse than D. is similar to

involved in some way with agriculture. Jerry Miller tells us about thirty marriages in the last year have resulted from his website. Some farmers have also found love through a group, Singles in Agriculture, which was formed as a nonprofit organization in 1986. It organizes gatherings that usually end with a dance, but is not a dating service. The purpose is to support educational and social activities that offer people a chance for friendship. Its website, "singlesinag.org", says there are more than 1,000 members across the nation and as far away as France. 35. Jerry Miller started "FarmersOnly.com" in order to ________ .
