In a study, researchers found that people who regularly were two-thirds less likely to catch a cold. The best way to get garlic?s benefits is eating it without cooking.

A year ago when my mom?s 50th birthday was coming, she said to us, “What about travelling in Europe?” She wasn?t interested in parties, new cars or celebrations. She wanted to travel. Of course, my brother Michael and I were excited when she put forward the idea. Michael, 23, was finishing up an engineering degree. And I had already borrowed a lot of money for my college education. We weren?t going to be able to have a trip like this on our own for quite some time. Obviously, we thought this was the best idea our mother had ever had. But we received phone calls and e-mails from my mother every day as the date of traveling was near. “Don?t forget to make copies of your passports.” “Make sure to call the bank.” “And seriously, Cara, pack sweaters. You?re going to be cold.” It had been seven years after I left home. And except during the holidays, my brother and I hadn?t spent much time together with our family for a long time. 听力 1---5 AABBA 6----10BCAAB 11---15BAABC 16---20AACCB 单项填空 21—25CAADC 26---30CDDBC 31---35DDBAD 完形填空 36---40CBCDB 41---45AADBA 46---50ACADB 51---55DCBAD 阅读理解 56---60BADBC 61---65CBDCA 66---70BDBCB 71---75DCBDA 阅读表达 76.
