阅读下列内容，从每小题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中选出一个最佳答案。 A Attention！Sunshine Language Learning Centre will set a course and it will teach Pure（纯 正 的 ） British English. Maybe you've known
some British expressions are quite different from American ones。 British people use “autumn” for “fall”, “film” for “movie”. “holiday” for “vocation”, “garden” for “yard”. etc There are more typical（典型的）expressions that you may not know. Here are Mr. Bean's examples. Are you interested in it? Do you want to learn? You can learn British English well if you put much effort into it. We have some native British English teachers with much experience to help you. The course will be open in the coming summer holiday. The price of the course is not very high: 500 for one person; 900 for two（10% off）; 1,200 for three (20% off); for four or more(30% off). For further details, call 400-810-2345 or search http://www.BEcourse.com. Come and join us! 51. The passage is most probably a(n) ___ . A. story B. notice C. invitation D. advertisement 52. Some typical British expressions are quoted （引用） mainly because the course organizers think ___ . A. English is hard to learn and needs hard work B. these typical English expressions are interesting C. some learners can be attracted to take the course D. British English expressions are better than American ones 53. If you and two of your classmates have decided to take the course, how much will you pay all together? A. 1,200. B. 1,400. C. 1,500. D. 1,600. B On the first day of school our teacher introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find a little old lady with a warm smile. She said, “Hi, handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old.” “Why are you in university at such a YOUNG age?” I asked. She replied, “I’m here to meet a rich husband, get married, have a couple of kids, and then retire and travel.” I knew she was joking. I was curious what might have encouraged her to be taking on this challenge at her age. “I always dreamed of having a university education and now I’m getting one!” she told me. We became friends. Every day we would talk nonstop after class. I always enjoyed listening to this “time machine” as she shared her wisdom and experience with me. And Rose easily made friends wherever she went. At the end of the term we invited Rose to make a little speech. She cleared her throat(喉咙) and began, “We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing. I’ve learned a few secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day. You’ve got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die.” “There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. Anybody can grow older. That doesn’t take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding the opportunity(机会) in change...” 54. When the author and Rose first met, they began their conversation in a ________ manner. A. polite B. impolite C. serious D. humorous 55. The author considered Rose as a “time machine” because ________.A. she always came to class on time B. she made friends easily at university C. she enjoyed a long life and had lots of wisdom and experience D. she knew the difference between growing older and growing up 56. The word“That”in Paragraph 7 refers to(指)________. A. growing older B. growing up C. staying young D. being happy 57. From this passage we know Rose believed ________. A. “Easier said than done.” B. “Well begun is half done.” C. “It is never too late to learn.” D. “Reading makes a full man.”
C If you could see a movie of your life before you lived it, would you want to live it? Probably not. The excitement of living is that you don’t know what’s coming. Sure, it’s hard to see uncertainty(不确定) in such positive （积极的）light when you’re out of work, or when you feel like you’re failing. But uncertainty is really another word for chance. When Allison graduated from Harvard, she had chances all over the place but had no idea what she wanted to do. She took a job in consulting（咨询）, but she knew she wouldn’t stay there. She took the GRE and scored so high that she was able to increase her income（收入）by teaching students. Still, she didn’t think she wanted to go to graduate school（研究院）. Allison knew she wasn’t doing what she wanted, but she didn’t know what she wanted. She worried. All her friends were going to graduate school or starting their own businesses. She was lost and felt that she would never find anything out. After six years, Allison, by having a general（全面的）plan in mind, got married, moved to the Midwest and used her consulting experience to get a great job. Allison realized that she spent her years finding her way: time well spent. The only way to lead an interesting life is to face uncertainty. Otherwise your life is not your own—it is a path someone else has chosen. Moments of uncertainty are when you create your life, when you become who you are. Uncertainty usually begins with a job hunt, but it doesn’t end there. Every new role we take on means another round of uncertainty. Instead of fearing it, you should find some ways to deal with uncertainty. 58. From the first two paragraphs, we can learn that . A. being out of work is a sad thing B. uncertainty is what makes life interesting C. life in a film is more exciting than real life D. chance never appears when we need it 59. What troubles Allison after graduation? A. She couldn’t find a well-paid job. B. She had no money to start a business. C. She was not sure what to do. D. She didn’t score high enough for graduate school. 60. How did Allison feel about her six years’ working experience? A. Uncertain. B. Amazed. C. Sorry. D. Satisfied. 61. What may be discussed in the following paragraph? A. How to deal with uncertainty. B. What role uncertainty plays in life. C. Why people fear uncertainty. D. Whom to go to when facing uncertainty. D Some people think that singing can lift our spirits ( 情 绪 ), while some other people don’t think so. They don’t like singing and they think singing can never make them happy. I do think singing can make us feel good, and it can lift our spirits. Let me tell you more about that. Some researchers ( 研 究 者 ) once did some surveys and proved it. The surveys show that singing can bring a lot of health benefits (益处). If you sing with your friends, the effects may be even better. John Lennon was once a teacher of Vocal Performance ( 声 乐 表 演 ) at Emporia State University. He says, “Singing is an inborn (天生的) need. Babies sing to themselves and they seem so happy. Like babies, when we sing, we feel so good and singing makes us feel even better. I like singing and I am happy every day.” Music is a part of human nature. And singing is a form of expression that can be understood by everyone. Some people say that music is like a kind of language. The language can show people’s opinions and attitudes(态度) to their life. Some songs can cheer people up when they are in trouble. Some songs can make people happy and excited. That’s why the TV show The Voice of China is so popular with people. 62. According to some surveys, singing can bring __________. A. health benefits B. health problems C. happiness and success D. some trouble 63. The underlined word “expression” probably means “_________” in Chinese. A. 运动 B. 表情 C. 表达 D. 放松 64. The TV show The Voice of China is popular because _________. A. all the singers are good at singing and dancing
五、词汇运用（共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，计 10 分）
B. songs make people happy and excited C. all the singers look nice in cool clothes D. songs are written by the singers themselves 65. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. All people think singing can lift our spirits. B. Some people don’t like singing and don’t think music can make them happy. C. If you sing in a group, there will be no benefits. D. No babies ever sing to themselves.

阅读下列短文，根据短文中的信息完成文后表格。在答题卡标有题号的横线上，写出空缺处 所填单词的正确形式（每空一词） Any time of the day you can devote to exercising is a good time for getting active, but if you want to make a healthy fitness plan, it may be helpful to keep several points in mind and find out the best time to exercise. First, try to know what kind of person you are. Especially, are you an early bird who always wakes up early in the morning, or a night owl(猫头鹰)who almost never goes to bed before midnight? Once you are generally aware of what your sleep characteristics are, you will have a better understanding of when your body needs exercise, either early in the morning, sometime during the day, or later on in the evening. Second, consider your daily plan. When do you seem to be most busy, and when do you plan your most important tasks? Try to fit in your exercise before or at least around these events if possible, so that you can keep exercising and your life won't be influenced as well. Third, think about when you feel you have the most energy. For most people, that time is usually in the morning after a good night's rest, or after a long day of work. After a busy or much stressful day, exercising can reduce your working stress from hard work. Lastly, find out the place you plan to do exercise. Your house provides exercise at any time if you own fitness equipment(设备)， but if there is a gym(健身房)down the street or along the way home from work, it will make it more suitable for you to exercise. More importantly, you need to make a plan and try sticking to it for one week. If you do so and can get through the exercise without being pulled in another direction, make it a habit. And once you have set up your fitness plan, don't make any great changes to it unless your doctor allows you to. Remember to take __76___ points about exercise and find out the best time to Introduction exercise. ▲.Know your sleep characteristics and you will __77___ when your body needs exercise. ▲.In order __78___ keep exercising from ___79___your life, make your daily Main Points plan well. ▲.Think about when you are most __80___. Exercising after work can make you ___81___stressed. ▲.Find out ___82__ to do exercise，and it will make it more suitable for you.
▲.Stick to your time table and ___84___ give up for one week. Then a habit may be formed. _____83___ ▲.Don’t c____85__ your plan unless you and your doctor reach an agreement.
