However, they can also cause problems and unhealthy addictions. This is most clearly seen in the example of South Korea. This country has the world's highest percentage of high-speed Internet services. It also has a high number of game players who are addicted to online games. In 2004, a young man died after playing online games almost nonstop for 86 hours. A 12-year-old boy stole $16,000 from his father to continue online games which he could not get away from. Such problems are spreading to other parts of Asia as well. In 2005, it was reported that about 80 percent of China's 13.8 million online game players were under 25. And many of these were said to be addicted. Such numbers point toward a growing problem among Chinese youth. Dr. Sue-Huei Chen, a psychologist (心理学家), discovered some signs of at-risk people. Such people often go online to escape from their problems. And they usually have no friendship or good social skills. They feel the need to spend more and more time online, so they may be absent from school or family. And they become upset if anyone tries to shorten their online game playing. 56.

However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, ―How much do I owe you?‖ ―You don’t owe me anything,‖ she replied. ―Then I thank you from the bottom of my heart.‖ With these words, Howard Kelly left that house. Years later the woman became badly ill and was finally sent to the hospital in a big city. Dr. Howard Kelly, now famous, was called in. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Dressed in his doctor’s clothes, Dr. Kelly went into her room and recognized her at once. From that day on, he gave special attention to her, and decided to do his best to save her life. At last the woman was saved. Dr. Kelly asked the business office to pass the final bill to him. He looked at it and then wrote something on the side. The bill was sent to the woman’s room. She was afraid to open it because she was sure that it would take the rest of her life to pay for it off. Finally she looked, and the note on the side of the bill caught her attention. She read these words: ―Paid in full with a glass of milk, Dr. Howard Kelly.‖ Tear of joy flooded her eyes. 59. The boy sent newspapers door to door in order to ________. A. continue his schooling B. become a famous doctor C. thank the woman for her kindness D. support his poor family 60.

C One thing that British and Chinese cultures share is a love for fine tea. Today, when we think of Western tea culture, we often think of the English and beautiful china tea cups. Afternoon tea People believe that an English lady, Anna, first introduced the idea of afternoon tea. In the 18th and 19th centuries. the English ate only two main meals each day ,breakfast and a heavy supper that would last for several hours in the evening. As a result, people often got very hungry during the long wait between these two meals. To solve this problem, Anna came up with the clever idea of inviting some friends to join her for an afternoon meal between four and five o'clock. This meal included cakes and sandwiches. and tea was served(提供)to wash down the food. In order to make this afternoon meal important, fine china cups and plates, and silver teapots. knives, forks and spoons were used .Soon, afternoon tea parties became popular social occasions. Today, afternoon tea parties continue to play an important part in the social life in modern Britain. Will you come for coffee? Coffee also has an important role in British culture. People often use the words―Will you come for coffee?‖ to mean ―Would you like to come to my home for a chat?‖ Normally, several different drinks such as tea, hot chocolate or a soft drink like orange Juice will be served as well as coffee. and you will be asked what you would like. However, you will not normally be offered wine at a "coffee" party. Coffeehouses and the London Stock Exchange In the 17th century London, coffeehouses were busy and noisy places. Businessmen and bankers went to coffeehouses to do their business, as well as to drink coffee. In fact, the London Stock Exchange(股票交易所) is believed to have started from these coffeehouses 63. Anna introduced the idea of drinking afternoon tea because she _______. A enjoyed chatting with her friends at home B loved fine tea and beautiful china tea cups C. wanted to share nice food with her friends D found people felt hungry during the long wait between the two meals 64. What does ―social occasions‖ mean in Chinese? A. 集体婚礼 B. 社交活动 C. 社区表演 D. 公共场合 65. If someone says to you ―Will you come for coffee?‖, you _______. A. will be offered coffee only B. are asked what you would like to drink C. will be asked to have a chat with him or her D. are invited to take part in an afternoon tea party 66. From the last paragraph (段落) we can see _______. A. a new business was started in coffeehouses B. coffeehouses are still used by businessmen and bankers C. businessmen and bankers went to coffeehouses just for coffee D. most people wouldn’t like to go to coffeehouses because of the noise D
When I was about 12, I had an enemy, a girl who liked to point out my shortcomings(缺点). Sometimes she said I was thin. Sometimes she said I was lazy. Sometimes she said I wasn’t a good student. Sometimes she said I talked too much, and so on. I tried to put up with(忍受) her as long as I could. At last, I became very angry. I ran to my father with tears in my eyes. He listened to me quietly, and then he asked, ―Are the things she said true or not? Mary, didn’t you ever wonder what you’re really like? Go and make a list of everything she said and mark the points that are true. Pay no attention to the other things she said.‖ I did as he told me and to my surprise, I discovered that about half the things were true. I brought the list back to my dad. He refused to take it. ―That’s just for you,‖ he said. ―You know better than anyone else the truth about yourself. When something said about you is true, you’ll find it will be helpful to you. Don’t shut your ears. Listen to them all, but hear the truth and do what you think is right.‖ Many years have passed. The situation often appears in my mind. In our life we often meet with some trouble and we often go to someone and ask for advice. For some advice you will treasure(珍惜) all your life! 67. What did the writer’s father do after he heard her complaints(抱怨)? A. He agreed with her ―enemy‖. B. he let her continue to put up with her ―enemy‖. C. He told her to write down all her ―enemy‖ had said about her. D. He told her not to pay attention to what her ―enemy‖ had said. 68.

The ―enemy‖ thought the writer was pretty. B. The ―enemy‖ thought the writer studied hard. C. The writer and her ―enemy‖ became best friends at last. D. The writer is grateful to her father. 70 Which of the following can be the best title of the passage? A. My Parents B. A Serious Criticism(批评) C. What People Say About You Is Always Right D. The Best Advice I Ever Had 第Ⅱ卷（共 35 分） 第四部分：任务型阅读 (共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分) 请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单 ．． 词。请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。每个空格只填 1 个单词。 Working women with young children often face a dilemma(进退两难的困境) of whether to keep working or to quit to take care of their children. Though the fact that married women work outside the homes has become a social trend, many people still expect mothers to stay home until their children are two or three years old. In my opinion, it’s unfair to deprive(剥夺) mothers of their right to keep working only for the reason of childcare. Women also need a sense of achievement just like men. Working women often find it difficult to give up the chance of self-fulfillment(自我实现) and go back home to play the traditional role. The times that women should stay at home passed and we should not neglect(忽视) mother’s desire to seek further goals outside the home. Besides, taking care of children is both parents’ responsibility rather than only mothers’.
Children belong to both the father and the mother. So it is unreasonable to ask mothers to give up their jobs for childcare because it is also fathers’ duty. Practically speaking, working mothers can help improve family finances. Though there’ll be extra expense for childcare service, working mothers have a steady income to help the family. Therefore, mothers’ working outside is good for the family, especially to those low-income ones. In a word, to expect mothers to put childcare before everything is not practical in today’s society. Only if fathers and mothers cooperate can the problem of childcare be solved. Title: Topic after Many people’s expectation 71 72 . 73 home until children are two or three mothers

Today I’d like to talk about how middle school students should deal with their pocket money properly. As is known to all, we can easily get pocket money from our parents if we want to. But it is no good for us spending it at will. In my opinion, we may spend some on books and magazines, from which we can get a lot of knowledge and pleasure. If we love music, sports or stamp collecting, we can develop the interests in them by using some of our pocket money. On the other hand, if possible, we’d better put some in the bank, which will help us form the habit of thrift. Don’t you think so? I really hope you will give me your opinions about it. Thank you.
