The conductor hurried to give her a warm welcome and then kindly asked the other passengers to make more room for the woman and her child. On seeing this, people began to talk. "You know this conductor used to be very rude. Now suddenly he has changed his bad behavior , "said a middle-aged man. "Yes, he should be praised and we must write a letter to the company," said a second passenger. "That's right," another lady said, "I wish a newspaper reporter were here so that more people could learn from this conductor. " Just then a gentleman who looked like a teacher turned to the conductor and said ,

"Excuse me, but can I know your name, please? Your excellent service must be praised..." Before he could open his mouth, the three-year-old child sitting on the young woman's lap interrupted, "I know his name. I call him Dad." 56. One passenger suggested writing a letter to the company to ____. A. make a demand for more buses B. thank the conductor for his good service C. criticize the conductor for his rude behavior D. invite a newspaper reporter to write about the conductor 57. What was the gentleman? A. A teacher. B. Not known from the story . C. A newspaper reporter. D. The conductor's friend from his company. 58. The word "him" in the last paragraph refers to _______. A. the gentleman B. the conductor C. the middle-aged man D. the three-year-old child 59. It is clear from the story that the conductor _______. A. has changed his attitude towards his work B. has now been kind and polite to all passengers C. has not changed his rude behavior to passengers D. has now been kind and polite to women with children

B Will it matter if you don't take your breakfast? Recently a test was given in the United States. Those tested included people of different ages, from 12 to 83. During the experiment, these people were given all kinds of breakfasts, and sometimes they got no breakfast at all. Special tests were set up to see how well their bodies worked when they had eaten a certain kind of breakfast. The results show that if a person eats a proper breakfast, he or she will work with better effect than if he or she has no breakfast. This fact appears to be especially true if a person works with his brains. If a student eats fruit, eggs, bread and milk before going to school, he will learn more quickly and listen with more attention to class. Opposite to what many people believe, if you don't eat breakfast, you will not lose weight. This is because people become so hungry at noon that they eat too much for lunch, and end up gaining weight instead of losing. You will probably lose more weight if you reduce your other meals. 60. During the test, those who were tested were given ________. A. no breakfast at all B. very rich breakfast C. little food for breakfast D. different breakfast or none 61. The results of the test show that ________. A. breakfast has great effect on work and studies B. breakfast has little to do with a person s work C. a person will work better if he has a simple breakfast D. those working with brains should have much for breakfast 62. The passage mentions that many people believe that if you don't eat breakfast, you will______. A. lose weight B. not lose weight C. be healthier D. gain a lot of weight

-5-

63. According to the passage, if a student does not eat breakfast, ___________. A. he will fall ill B. he will fail to listen to his teacher C. he will not make progress in his study D. his mind will work more slowly C Are you happy?Do you remember a time when you were happy?Are you seeking happiness today? Many have sought a variety of sources for their feelings of happiness. Some have put their hearts and efforts into their work. Too many have turned to drugs and alcohol. Meanwhile,untold numbers have looked for it in the possession of expensive cars,exotic(异 国的) vacation homes and other popular “toys”.Most of their efforts have a root in one common fact:people are looking for a lasting source of happiness. Unfortunately , I believe that happiness escapes from many people because they misunderstand the journey of finding it. I have heard many people say that ,“I'll be happy when I get my new promotion.” Or “I'll be happy when I lose that extra 20 pounds.” It is dangerous because it accepts that happiness is a “response” to having ,being or doing something. In life, we all experience stimulus(激励) and response. Today, some people think that an expensive car is a stimulus, and happiness is a response; a great paying job is a stimulus, and happiness is a response;a loving relationship is a stimulus,and happiness is a response. This belief leaves us the thinking and feeling:“I'll be happy when...” It has been my finding that actually the opposite is true. I believe that happiness is a stimulus and a response is what life brings to those who are truly happy. When we are happy, we tend to have more success in our work. When we are happy,people want to be around us and enjoy loving relationships. When we are happy,we more naturally take better care of our bodies and enjoy good health. Happiness is not a response but a stimulus. Happiness is a conscious choice we make every day of our lives. For unknown reason to me,many choose to be painful,unsuccessful and angry most of the time. Happiness is not something that happens to us after we get something we want—we usually get things we want AFTER we choose to be happy. 64.From the second paragraph,we know too many people ________. A.are not happy when they work hard B.are not happy when they drink or take drugs C.are happy when they possess their own expensive cars D.all desire exotic vacation homes 65.Generally speaking,most people feel happy because________. A.they think happiness is rooted in their deep hearts B.they get what they want to have C.they get a great paying job D.they get an expensive car 66.Which of the following is TRUE according to the author? A.If you want to get what you want,you first choose to be happy. B.We should try to get more and then we'll be happy.

-6-

C.Most people today are happy. D.Work is a necessary part in our daily life. 67.From the viewpoint of the author,happiness is ________. A.based on our needs B.unconditional C.out of reach D.limited D Four-year-old Wang Yiming,better known as Xiao Bao,may be the youngest-ever impersonator of Michael Jackson. The boy performed on The Ellen Show, a US TV talk show hosted by comedian Ellen DeGeneres,in February. The moment he met DeGeneres,he gave her a big hug and a lollipop(棒棒糖) .Then in full Michael Jackson attire,he danced to the music of Dangerous. When Ellen promised him a tour of Disneyland, he immediately imitated Donald Duck,which amused the audience. Xiao Bao is familiar with various stages,as he has been a little star in dozens of shows since the age of 2 .Hip-pop dancing is his favorite. An online video of him and his teacher dancing hip-pop together brought him to The Ellen Show. Unlike most child stars,Xiao Bao did not learn dancing just to perform.He was born prematurely and at birth, weighed just a little more than 1 kg,according to his mother,Bian Aiging. Doctors thus suggested Bian play music for his mental development and engage him in physical activities. Bian quit her photographer job and took Xiao Bao to a dancing studio in Beijing. In the studio he learned street dance and was introduced to Michael Jackson's music. His imitation of Jackson's video often entertained his elder classmates and teachers. Some teachers recommended him to 6+1, a popular talent show of broadcaster CCTV. He went and became a star overnight. Bian is happy that Xiao Bao is still a boy, and she avoids contest shows now, because she does not want Xiao Bao to be under pressure. “Every time he is on a show, we tell him, ?you just go to play.It will be fun,? ”she said. The only contest show they took part in recently is Super Family, because the winner may perform at the opening ceremony of the World Expo in Shanghai. Bian thought it would be a good life experience for Xiao Bao if he won. However, the boy was eliminated in an early round. “Off stage, he asked me, ?Mom, did I lose??I told him, ?you did not lose anything. You are the best,” Bian said. “And he was happy immediately.” The dancing courses will continue, because they make him really happy, his mother said. 68. What is the text mainly about? A. The childhood of Xiao Bao. B. A thriller life for little Xiao Bao. C. A famous child star. D. The Ellen Show. 69. Why did Xiao Bao learn dance? A. He has a talent for dancing. B.His parents wanted ham to learn to perform. C. He was born prematurely and at birth , playing music is good for his mental development. D. His teacher wanted to train him as a world famous little star.

70. What can we learn about Xiao Bao's mother? A. She was not satisfied with her son's performance. B. She encouraged her son to attend various shows. C. She quitted her job in order to educate her son to be famous. D. She will not discourage her son from dancing. 71. What is the writer's attitude toward this passage? A. Not everything we do is for winning. B. Well begun is half done. C. Try one's best to be the best. D. No pains,no gains E While surfing television channels over the weekend, a scene from a family classic of last year portraying the now so-familiar sorry state of retired parents being ill-treated by their children and families caught my attention. I wondered why the description of this relationship had not changed much over the many years!Even though the same movies and soaps accurately capture several other social changes around us--from value systems to new found economic freedom to the importance of technology and the changing approach to consumerism--are these creative efforts far from the truth in telling us that an average retiree is still struggling? Look around and you will agree that the post-retired lifestyle for an ex-salaried class people is often a pale shadow of their last working years. Even self employed people ,who have handed over the mantle to the next generation,are no exception .Did the average middle class not save enough through his working years? Socially, we already know that the Indians are taught the benefits of start saving early on in life. Household savings data supports this social behavior--India has the highest rates of savings among various economies and is far ahead of the west. Yet,tragically,a lifetime of savings does not seem to provide enough for a comfortable retirement! A closer look at the pattern of what we do with our financial savings may tell us a bit more. Over half of households' financial savings is put into a “safe” deposit, followed by large portions in insurance, pension, provident funds (福利基金) and the rest in physical currency. Less than a tenth goes into " risky" assets(资产)like stocks. While there might be nothing, in particular,worrisome in this investment pool,one has to consider inflation. The real value of savings,over a few decades,may actually be lower than the starting point. 72. What had not changed much over the many years according to the passage? A. Value systems B. The poor situation of retirees C. Economic freedom. D. Approach to consumerism. 73. Which of the following statements about saving in India is right? A. The concept of saving has been well received by Indians. B. The amount of the savings ranks number one across the world. C. long-standing savings can help the retirees live a care-free life. D. Saving early can not benefit people at all. 74. What can be inferred according to the last paragraph?

-8-

A. Half of the financial savings in stocks can be accepted. B. The real value of saving must be lowered in a few years. C. It may have been better to have consumed money than to have saved it. D. Inflation can be avoided on condition that you consume instead of saving. 75. What's best title of the text? A. Retirees being treated unfairly. B. Is saving enough? C. Saving in India. D. How to deal with saving? 第四部分:书面表达(共两节,35分) 第一节 任务型读写(共10小题,每小题1分,满分10分) It is not necessary to read and understand all the words to grasp the meaning of what you are reading. The skills you require to read in English are exactly the same as the ones you need to read in your native language. There are some skills that will improve your reading skills. You can use skimming to quickly grasp the main idea of the text. What you do is basically run your eyes down the text gathering the important information. This is a great practice when you need to rapidly understand what is going on at a business meeting. Normally, skimming is a practice that is widely used while reading newspapers to get the news fast, or reading magazines to find articles that may interest you quickly. Besides, you scan a text to find a specific piece of information. You must run your eyes down the text to find what particularly interests you. People normally scan schedules and meeting plans to identify specific information they need. Scanning is also common when watching TV and reading train or plane schedules, as well as convention handbooks(会议手 册). Broad reading is practiced for pleasure and a general understanding of the text. You absorb yourself in the reading of long texts as a leisure activity or for professional reasons. Business people and students apply this practice when reading books related to their fields, interesting novels , or specialized magazines. Reading in detail is the concentrated aspect of reading, the one that allows you to understand details. It requires lots of attention to be able to understand it completely. To grasp every detail, you must understand every single word, phrase, and number, like when reading reports and insurance contracts (保险合同). As any other skill, fast and effective reading is developed with practice. The more you read, the faster you will get, and you will start to feel you are finally mastering the English language, with your determination to make it to the top!
