At least he does today, in the hearts of tens of thousands showing their th love for the King on the 25 anniversary(纪念日) of his death. Refusing to let go of fond memories, fans are once again flooding to Graceland, Elvis’s house. This annual event is informally known as “Dead Elvis Week”, an almost religious journey in memory of Elvis’s death on August 16, 1977. Feeling like a cross between an Easter night and Mardi Gras, the week of sadness is hardly a sad affair. In fact, it includes all kinds of parties, concerts, and memo rials. The highlight, however, is a candlelight night that more than 10, 000 fans from all over the world took part in. In twos and threes, they walk up to the small poolside garden where Elvis is buried. “The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” may be dead, but for these devotees, he
is never truly gone. Elvis Aaron Presley wasn’t born a king. As a matter of fact, he grew up dirt-poor in rural Tennessee. Legend(传奇) has it that Elvis was working as a truck driver in Memphis when he made his first recording: a late birthday gift for his mother. Later, when the owner of Sun Records, Sam Phillips, heard Elvis’s wonderful voice, he thought he had finally found what he had been looking for — a white man who sounded black. Phillips boasted(夸 口) that with Elvis on his label, he would make a million dollars. Early Sun recordings had Elvis on songs and guitar, supported by another guitar and a stand-up bass. He was playing the kind of material he wo uld one day become famous for: blues and country songs. It was a long way from the white jumpsuits and Las Vegas-style concerts everyone now connects with Elvis. But those early recordings helped what the world now knows as rock ‘n’ roll come into being. 21. When did the author write the passage above according to the passage? A. In 1977. B. In 2002. C. Between an Easter night and Mardi Gras. D. Not mentioned. 22. Which of the following is NOT included in “Dead Elvis Week”? A. Parties. B. A parade. C. Concerts. D. A candlelight night. 23. What can be inferred from the underlined part in Paragraph 3? A. Elvis was a white man who looked like a black one. B. Sam Phillips didn’t manage to find what he had been looking for. C. In some way, the black then had a greater gift for singing than the white. D. Sam Phillips had been seeking a white man who acted like a black. 24. What is the BEST title of the passage? A. Elvis Aaron Presley. B. Dead Elvis Week. C. The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. D. The Origin of Rock ‘n’ Roll. B Like many new graduates, I left university full of hope for the future but with no real idea of what I wanted to do. My degree, with honors, in English literature had not really prepared me for anything practical. I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world somehow, but I had no idea how to do that. That’s when I learned about the Lighthouse Project. I started my journey as a Lighthouse Project volunteer by reading as much as I could about the experiences of previous volunteers. I knew it would be a lot of hard work, and that I would be away from my family and friends for a very long time. In short, I did not take my decision to apply for the Lighthouse Project lightly. Neither did my family. Eventually, how ever, I won the support of my family, and I sent in all the paperwork needed for the application. After countless interviews and presentations, I managed to stand out among the candidates and survive the test alone. Several months later, I finally received a call asking me to report for the duty. I would be going to a small village near Abuja, Nigeria. Where? What? Nigeria? I had no idea. But I was about to find out. After completing my training, I was sent to the village that was small and desperately in need of proper accommodation. Though the local villagers were poor, they offered their homes, hearts, and food as if I were their own family. I was asked to lead a small team of local people in building a new schoolhouse. For the next year or so, I taught in that same schoolhouse. But I somet imes think I learned more from my students than they did from
me. Sometime during that period, I realized that all those things that had seemed so strange or unusual to me no longer did, though I did not get anywhere with the local language, and returned to the United States a different man. The Lighthouse Project had changed my life forever. 25. What do we know about the author? A. His university education focused on the theoretical knowledge. B. His dream at university was to become a volunteer. C. He took pride in having contributed to the world. D. He felt honored to study English literature. 26. According to the Paragraph 2, it is most likely that the author_________. A. made the decision to apply for the Lighthouse Project immediately B. asked previous volunteers about voluntary work C. attended special training to perform difficult tasks D. felt uneasy about having to leave his family and friends 27. In his application for the volunteer job, the author_________. A. participated in many discussions B. went through challenging survival tests C. wrote quite a few papers on voluntary work D. faced strong competition from other candidates 28. What can we infer from the author’s experiences in Nigeria? A. He found some difficulty adapting to the local culture at first. B. He had learned to communicate in the local language. C. He had overcome all his weaknesses before he left for home. D. He was chosen as the most respectable teacher by his students. C
Below is a selection from a book on how to communicate with gestures.
When travelling to a different country, your safest bet is to limit gestures as much as possible. However, you may find that your gestures happen out of habit. Understanding gestures of the country you are visiting may prevent you from communicating the wrong message. In North America, eye contact (接触) communicates to the speaker that you’re interested and listening. In Asia, people look away to concentrate on what the speaker is saying. Taking the time to familiarize yourself with the gestures of the country you are visiting will help you connect with the people of the foreign environment, Lydia Ramsey writes in “Manners That Sell”. Gestures in Brazil Muck like the Italian culture, a Brazilian snaps his fingers ( 打 响 指 ) and uses exaggerated (夸张的) hand movements when emphasizing a statement. The sense of warmth and friendliness with each other is shown through the gesture of eye contact when communicating and standing close together in lineups or when talking to each other. Communicating a greeting is more than the gesture of a handshake, but also involves the touch of the forearm, according to the Nonverbal Communication Web Project’s Charlene Wu. Gestures in China China is influenced by Confucius’ way of thinking, which is reflected through its
culture. You communicate a greeting in China with the gesture of a slight nod and bow. To communicate respect, you keep your head lowered. In china, the gesture of standing close during a conversation prevents having to communicate with a raised voice. A person will communicate her surprise during a conversation with the gesture of breathing in air loudly, rather than a loud outburst. Gestures in Russia Gestures considered common to Americans may be considered rude in Russia. The American gesture to communicate “okay”, with the forefinger and thumb touching and three fingers up, is considered rude in Russia. Looking at your watch is a rude gesture communicating impatience. Russians also feel upset about the gesture of communicating direction by pointing. Gestures in India Gestures used in India are representative (有代表性的) of its traditional culture. In India, the gesture of holding out the hand to communicate giving or receivi ng must be done with the right hand as a person in India u ses her left hand for washing. The gesture of communicating respect at a religious ceremony is done by removing your shoes. The proper way of communicating direction is to use either the whole hand or by using your chin (下 巴). The proper form of communicating a greeting is to press the palms together with fingers upward and say, “Namaste”. 29. The passage is mainly about _______________. A. some traveling tips for visitors B. the advantage of using body language C. some gestures in different cultures D. the comparison between different cultures 30. The underlined word “familiarize” probably means ____________. A. Make someone understand B. Look like somebody C. Get interested in something D. Become a member of a family 31. In China people stand close while talking simply to ____________. A. express their respect B. show their surprise C. avoid making a loud voice D. communicate a greeting 32. In India, a proper way of greeting is ____________. A. touching the forearm B. keeping your head lowered C. shaking hands with the left hand D. pressing the palms together upward 第二节（共 5 个小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Every contestant who participates in a debate tries to convince the audience and the judges of his/her point of view. Debating does not mean that you should only argue and deny the points your opponents(对手). 33 The most important requirement is to connect with the audience and the judges and convince them to follow your version of argument. That is how
you can win a debate competition. Here are some tips. Prepare well for the big day. 34 You are aware of the topic of debate and have an extensive research on the topic. Once you learn the important points properly, then you can form your own opinions about it. You can have a confident, convincing piece of interaction when you have a good knowledge about the topic. Show that you’re confident. Always put across your points confidently. Your language skills, the tone of your voice, the modulations(转调) that you make when you interact, your body language and finally the eye contact are the key areas for succeeding in debate. 35 You can do this either before your friends or in front of the mirror. Connect with the audience and the judges. One thing to keep in mind is that you need to win over the audience and the panel of judges. 36 You can even put across the fresh ideas that you get at the last moment. Learn the art of promoting a dialogue rather than continuing with the arguing. 37 If you succeed in putting across your points in a descriptive manner, the audience will tend to have an imaginary scene of the description. This will also have a good impact on the minds of the audience and they can remember the facts for a longer span of time. A. There is a lot more to it. B. Make your description clear and vivid. C. This is the most important thing to do. D. Try to get help to prepare for the debate. E. You need to practice a lot to be confident. F. Have a n influence on the audience and judges. G. The winning depends entirely on your ability to do so. 第三部分：语言运用（共三节，满分 55 分） 第一节：完形填空（共 20 个小题；每小题 1.5 分；满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文, 从短文后所给各题的 A、B、C 和 D 四个选项中，选出可以填入空白处的最佳选 项。 I’ve been an artist since I was about four.

The organization is aimed at helping children who suffer from cancer. One day, we were asked to raise money for cancer research and program funding at an event. Since my friend Lisa was also a volunteer for the organization, I went to the event with her. There were many people at the event. After seeing our poster, some people came to us and talked with us. But few people donated money. It was a bit hot that day. Both Lisa and I got really upset. Half an hour later, Lisa started complaining, “I don’t think we can raise much money today.” “Don’t worry. The event lasts for three hours. There is still a lot of time left,” I said, though I also thought poorly of our plan to raise much money that day. While Lisa and I were talking, a little boy of about eight years old came to us. He stood in front of our poster and started reading. After a while, he asked, “What is cancer?” I explained what cancer is. Then I said, “Many people around the world are suffering from cancer. It can be really dangerous. More research is needed to learn about it so that people with it can suffer less. That’s why we’re collecting money for it.” “Do children suffer from cancer, too?” asked the boy. “Yes. Many children suffer from cancer. Some of them may die. They need help,” Lisa said and I nodded. Hearing that, the boy became sad. Then the boy asked, “How much money have you collected?”
Both Lisa and I were embarrassed to tell him that we didn’t raise much money. At last, we said, “Not much.” Th e boy looked into our donation container and only saw a few one-dollar and five-dollar bills. The boy said nothing after seeing that and left. Then some girls came to us and we started talking with them. Neither Lisa nor I thought the boy would return. However, about twenty minutes later, the boy did return. 注意： 1. 所续写短文的词数应为 150 左右； 2. 应使用 5 个以上短文中标有下划线的关键词语； 3. 续写部分分为两段，每段的开头语已为你写好； 4. 续写完成后，请用下划线标出你所使用的关键词语。 Paragraph 1: The boy happily ran to us and asked, “Would you take a donation from children?”_______ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________ Paragraph 2: Both Lisa and I were deeply touched. __________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________

We couldn’t believe such a little boy would care. Though we didn’t believe it, we said “yes”. The boy put his hand in his pocket and took out some five-dollar bills. He said, “I just asked for them from my mother. I really want to help the children suffering from cancer.” Both Lisa and I were deeply touched. We thanked the boy, but he left soon. Looking at his back, both Lisa and I were greatly encouraged. We wanted to try harder to raise money. So instead of just standing there, we went to people and told them about our program. At the end of the day, we raised over three thousand dollars, a lot more than Lisa and I had expected in the beginning.
