brighter. 36 the fact is, in U.S.A, as in many other English speaking countries, speakers of two or more languages are in the 37 . Eighty-four per cent of US people are monolingual (speakers of only one language). This leaves a small number who 38 to speak two or more languages. No matter how proud people are of their cultural roots, to speak anything ___39 English is a marker of difference here. That’s why fourteen-year-old Umar is 40 when people comment on the fact that he is able to speak Arabic. Umar’s mother points out: “In U.S.A, it’s not 41 for kids to be bilingual. But, if you speak another language to your children in U.S.A, it is thought that you are not helping them to 42 society.” But in fact, the general 43 among experts is that learning a second language is good for children. Experts believe that bilinguals – people who speak __44 languages – have a clear learning advantage 45 their monolingual schoolmates. This 46 on how much of each language they can speak, not on which language is used, 47 they are learning Arabic, French, Chinese or any other language. Vinss Millon, a professor of Foreign Language Training, says: “A lot of studies have 48 that children who speak more than one language sometimes learn one language more 49 , but in the end they do as well as their monolingual schoolmates, and often better, in other subjects.” The view is that there is a(n) 50 from the effort of learning another language. A few other 51 agree that “Bilinguals tend to use language better as a whole. They also 52 greater creativity and problem-solving ability, and they learn further languages more easily ”. With all of the benefits, why do we not show more 53 for learning other languages? Parents and teachers 54 in bilingual education say it is pressure from friends at school, general 55 to other languages in English-speaking countries, and problems in the school system that are to blame. 36. A. And B. So C. But D. Thus 37. A. minimum B. maximum C. minority D. majority 38. A. claim B. pretend C. decide D. plan 39. A. more than B. less than C. rather than D. other than 40. A. excited B. embarrassed C. disappointed D. appreciated 41. A. common B. unusual C. unique D. general 42. A. fit in B. build up C. contribute to D. figure out 43.

第三部分 阅读理解（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上 将该项涂黑。 A The right to vote is one of the most fundamental rights of any democracy. Yet, for too long, too many of our fellow citizens were denied that right simply because of the color of their skin. Fifty years ago this week, President Lyndon Johnson signed a law to change that. The Voting Rights Act broke down legal barriers that stood between millions of African Americans and their constitutional right to cast ballot(投票). It was, and still is, one of the greatest victories in our country ’s struggle for civil rights. But it didn’t happen overnight. Countless men and women marched and organized, sat in and stood up, for our most basic rights. For this, they were called agitators(挑拨者) and un-American; they were jailed and beaten. Some were even killed. But in the end, they reaffirmed the idea at the very heart of America: that people who love this country can change it. Our country is a better place because of all those heroes did for us. But as one of those heroes, Congressman John Lewis, reminded us in Selma this past March, “ There’s still work to be done.” Fifty years after the Voting Rights Act, there are still too many barriers to vote, and too many people trying to erect（建立） new ones. We’ve seen laws that roll back early voting, force people to jump through hoops to cast a ballot or lead to legitimate (合法的) voters being improperly purged from the rolls. Over the years, we have seen provisions (规定) specifically designed to make it harder for some of our fellow citizens to vote. In a democracy like ours, with a history like ours, that’s a disgrace. That ’s why, as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, I’m calling on Congress to pass new legislation to make sure every American has equal access to the polls. It’s why I support the organizers getting folks registered in their communities. And it ’s why, no matter what party you support, my message to every American is simple: get out there and vote—not just every four years, but every chance you get, because your elected officials will only heed(留心) your voice if you make your voice heard. The promise that all of us are created equal is written into our founding documents but it ’s up to us to make that promise real. Together, let ’s do what Americans have always done: Let ’s keep marching forward, keep perfecting our union, and keep building a better country for our kids. [From Obama Weekly Address Aug 8th , 2015] 56. Many Americans were denied the right to vote simply because _____. A. they were unwilling to go out and vote B. they were agitators and un-American C. too many people tried to erect new barriers D. the color of their skin was different 57. What message does President Barack Obama want to convey in this speech? A. The President underlined that all people are created equal. B. The President celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. C. The President reaffirmed the commitment to protecting the right to vote. D. The President called on everyone to seize every chance to elect officials.
B There is one holiday in the year which is completely American, Thanksgiving Day. It is the day when everyone goes back home to spend the day with his family, to have the traditional Thanksgiving dinner of roast turkey, to talk about old times. This is a story of Thanksgiving Day and of one man's efforts, under rather special circumstances, to carry on these traditions. Old Pete took his seat this day on his usual bench in Union Square. Every Thanksgiving Day for nine years, Pete had taken this same seat exactly at one o'clock, and each time the same pleasant thing had happened. But this time Pete had come here more from habit than from hunger. Certainly today Pete was not hungry. He had just had a dinner so enormous that he could hardly breathe. The buttons on his ragged shirt and coat were about to burst. He was so full of soup, oysters, roast turkey, apple pie, ice cream, and a dozen other rich foods that the November breeze and the first light fall of snow felt cool and pleasant to his face. The meal had been completely unexpected. He had been passing one of the large homes on Fifth Avenue, where there lived two rich old ladies. It seems that it was their custom each Thanksgiving to place a servant at the front entrance with orders to bring in the first hungry looking person that passed and then give him a Thanksgiving dinner of everything he could eat. On this particular Thanksgiving Day, Pete had passed, the servant had brought him in, and, before Pete knew it, he was being served like a king with more food than he could eat. Pete sat on the bench now, hardly able to move. He happened to look to the left and there in the distance he saw the Old Gentleman coming toward him. He wanted to get up and run, but he was so full of food that he stayed right there. Every Thanksgiving Day for nine years, the Old Gentleman had come here, and found Pete on this same bench, and then taken him to a restaurant and bought him a Thanksgiving dinner. It was a kind of tradition which the Old Gentleman, who had no family and lived alone, had tried to continue. The old man was tall and thin and sixty years old. He was aristocratic looking and he always dressed in black. His hair was whiter and thinner than it had been the year before, and he leaned more heavily on his cane than he used to. "How do you do!" said the Old Gentleman. "I am glad to see that the changes of another year have permitted you to move in health through this beautiful world." Each time the Old Gentleman had said exactly this same thing. It was part of the tradition. Old Pete, too, began to feel as though he himself was now a part of the tradition, and he therefore did not have the courage to tell the old man that he had already eaten. This dinner seemed to mean so much to the Old Gentleman. "Thank you, sir," said Old Pete at last. "I'll go with you gladly. I'm very hungry sir." Together the Old Gentleman and Pete walked south to the same restaurant where each year Pete had his Thanksgiving dinner. They sat at the same table. The Old Gentleman seemed pleased and happy. When the waiter brought dish after dish of food to Pete, the Old Gentleman sat quietly and smiled. Under the circumstance, Pete had to eat. It was part of the tradition, and so he ate like a hero. Soup, oysters, roast turkey, pie, he ate everything, although when he entered the restaurant even the smell of more food almost made him sick. At last Pete leaned back with the battle won.
"Thank you sir," he said, with some effort, " for a fine dinner." They parted as they did each year at the door, the Old Gentleman going south, Pete north. Around the corner, Pete stopped for a moment, felt a terrible pain in his stomach, then fell to the sidewalk unconscious. A little later an ambulance came. In the hospital they discovered that he had had an attack of indigestion. An hour later, another ambulance brought the Old Gentleman to the same hospital. At first they thought it was also indigestion but later one of the nurses said, "That nice old gentleman over there-- you wouldn't think that it was a case of starvation. Proud old family, I suppose. He told me that he hadn't eaten a thing for three days.” 58. This year Old Pete came to the Union Square because ______. A. he was hungry and expected to find some food B. he had nowhere to go on the Thanksgiving Day C. he wanted to meet the Old Gentleman and check his health D. it was a convention for him to accept the Old Gentleman’s dinner 59. Why didn’t Old Pete refuse the invitation from the Old Gentleman? A. Because he felt he had more room for food. B. Because he realized he was involved in the tradition. C. Because he felt moved by the Old Gentlemen’s generosity. D. Because he didn’t dare to tell the old man he had already eaten. 60. According to the passage, which of the following is true? A. Only the Old Gentlemen observed Thanksgiving Day traditions. B. The two gentlemen were both hospitalized because of hunger. C. The Thanksgiving dinner offered by the Old Gentleman is more than dinner itself. D. The food in the restaurant tastes better than that in large homes on Fifth Avenue. 61. What can we learn from the two Thanksgiving Day Gentlemen? A. One man’s meat is another man’s poison. B. They are really gentlemen true to their word. C. They are too vain to express their true feelings. D. The conduct of the two gentlemen is really absurd. C Today, many species of animals and plants are endangered. This means they are in danger of becoming extinct and living on only in the pages of history books. The famous dodo is a classic example of a creature that became extinct. A flightless bird that lived on the island of Mauritius, it was discovered by sailors in 1598 but was hunted to extinction by 1681. Hunting has caused the Bengal tiger and the African elephant to be endangered today but habitat destruction can also lead to extinction. This is equally true for plants. Animals and plants disappear for other reasons too, but the main cause is often a disruption（打乱，破坏） in the natural food chain, whether due to hunting, habitat destruction, or even the introduction of alien species. The natural food chain is the cycle that governs the existence of all life on this planet. It is a carefully balanced cycle and any imbalance that occurs can cause knock-on effects that have serious consequences. At the beginning of the natural food chain are plants which turn sunlight into energy and draw nutrients from the earth. Plants are called producers.
After the producers come the consumers. There are three tiers of consumers. First are creatures such as plant-eating animals, fish and insects which feed off the producers. These animals that only eat plants are called herbivores. The second tier of consumers are carnivores animals that live off other animals. The third tier of consumers eats both other animals and plants. These consumers, including most humans, are called omnivores. After animals and plants die, they become food for other smaller creatures, such as bacteria and some plants, such as fungi. As they feed, these creatures turn the dead bodies back into gases and minerals which are again food for the producers at the beginning of the food chain. And so the cycle continues. All of nature is connected and governed by hundreds of these delicate food chains and if a single plant in the chain cannot survive, then the insects that live off the plant start to die and the animals that eat the insects also start to die. When a food chain is disrupted, the consequences can be extremely serious. One estimate suggests that for each plant species that is lost, up to 30 animals and insects may also die out. One wonders how many species were affected by the extinction of the dodo? Humans can have disastrous effects on food chains. We've already mentioned hunting but now let's look at travel. When people first started to explore the world they took plant and animal species from their home countries and introduced them wherever they went. They didn't realize that by introducing alien species they were disrupting the natural food chains of the areas they discovered. Although there are strict rules in place today controlling the import and export of alien species, some places are still fighting the effects of aliens introduced hundreds of years ago. For example, Gough Island in the South Atlantic Ocean is a breeding ground for albatrosses that have been nesting there for centuries. But in the 19th century, mice from passing ships were brought to the island. Being a species alien to the island, they had no natural predators and have now grown to such a size that they are attacking and killing albatross chicks. If they are allowed to continue, they will wipe out the albatross population. With import laws and people's rising awareness of how humans affect the natural environment, hopefully we can learn to fit better into the natural food chains that govern our world. Otherwise we need to accept that the loss of any more plants and animals could eventually mean our own extinction. 62. What do the first two paragraphs mainly tell us? A. Hunting and habitat destruction lead to extinction. B. Many species of animals and plants are endangered. C. Plants and animals become extinct for the same reasons. D. The main cause of extinction is often a disruption in the natural food chain. 63. Which of the following sentence is TRUE according to the passage? A. Strict rules alone can remove the bad effects of alien species. B. Plants, herbivores and carnivores are the three tiers of consumers. C. If a bird becomes extinct, the relevant food chain will be disrupted. D. Animals and plants become extinct because alien species are imported. 64. By mentioning the mice in Gough Island, the author intends to highlight ______. A. mice worldwide are growing all the time B. being aliens, they had no natural predators
C. some places are still fighting the effects of aliens D. traveling can have disastrous effects on food chains 65. What is the best title of the passage? A. Survival of the fittest. B. Endangered animals and plants. C. How to protect the natural environment. D. The link between food chains and extinction. D What will higher education look like in 2050? That was the question addressed Tuesday night by Michael Crow, president of Arizona State University. “We’re at the end of the fourth wave of change in higher education,” Crow began, arguing that research universities followed the initial establishment of higher education, public colleges, and land-grant schools in the timeline of America. In less than a half-century, he said, global market competition will be at its fastest rates of change ever, with several multitrillion-dollar economies worldwide. According to a recent projection, the nation’s population could reach 435 million, with a large percentage of those residents economically disadvantaged. In addition, climate change will be “meaningfully uncontrollable” in many parts of the world. The everyday trends seen today, such as declining performance of students at all levels, particularly in math and science, and declining wages and employment among the less educated, will only continue, Crow maintained, and are, to say the least, not contributing to fulfilling the dream of climbing the social ladder mobility, quality of life, sustainable environment, and longer life spans that most Americans share. “How is it that we can have these great research universities and have negative-trending outcomes?” Crow said in a talk “I hold the universities accountable. … We are part of the problem.” Among the “things that we do that make the things that we teach less learnable,” Crow said, are the strict separation of disciplines, academic rigidity, and conservatism, the desire of universities to imitate schools at the top of the social ranks, and the lack of the computer system ability that would allow a large number of students to be educated for a small amount of money. Since 2002, when Crow started being in charge at Arizona State — which he calls the “new American university” — he has led more than three dozen initiatives that aim to make the school “inclusive, scalable, fast, adaptive, challenge-focused, and willing to take risks.” Among those initiatives were a restructuring of the engineering and life sciences schools to create more linkages between disciplines; the launch of the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the School of Sustainability; the start of a Teachers College to address K-12 performance and increase the status of the Education Department at the university; and broadened access, increasing the freshman class size by 42 percent and the enrollment of students living below the poverty line by 500 percent. Universities must start, Crow noted, “by becoming self-reflective architects, figuring out what we have and what we actually need instead of what legend tells us we have to be.” Research universities today have “run their course,” he added. “Now is the time for variety.” During a discussion afterward, Crow clarified and expanded on some of his points. He
discussed, for example, the school’s distance-learning program. “Nearly 40 percent of undergraduates are taking at least one course online,” he said, which helps the school to keep costs down while advancing interactive learning technologies. He said that Arizona State is working to increase the transfer and completion rates of community-college students, of whom only about 15 percent, historically, complete their later degrees. “We’ve built a system that will allow them to track into universities,” particularly where “culturally complex barriers” beyond finances limit even the most gifted students. 66. The fourth wave of change in America’s higher education refers to _______. A. public colleges B. land-grant schools C. research universities D. initial higher education 67. Which is NOT part of the American dream most people share? A. People enjoy a quality life. B. People live longer and longer. C. The freedom to move around. D. An environment that is sustainable. 68. Which is an initiative adopted by Crow at Arizona State University? A. Restructuring the teachers College. B. Launching the School of Life Sciences. C. Ignoring the linkages between disciplines. D. Enrolling more students from poor families. 69. Which one is similar to the underlined word “architect” in meaning? A. The author of the guidebook is an architect by profession. B. If you want to refurnish the house, consult the architect. C. Deng Xiaoping is one of the architects of the PRC. D. Tom is considered one of the best landscape architect here. 70. With the distance-learning program, Arizona State University is able to ______. A. enroll 40% of its students online B. keep costs down without a loss of quality C. provide an even greater number of courses D. attract the most gifted students all over the world

The hottest apps
IF you’re one of those people who likes to take a look at their phone from time to time, you’re not alone. Using apps has now become part of everyday life. But with so many on the market that claim to be the best, which ones should you download onto your phone to have fun with? Below, four have been picked out for you. Evernote In the world of note taking, Evernote is the king. It allows users to create electronic files such as text, photos, audio, and videos. It also lets you organize your files, tag (标记) them, and search them easily. One of the most useful features on the app, though, is being able to log onto any device with
your Evernote account and use your files. The app automatically stores your content in the cloud storage, and syncs (同步) it with your other devices. Another feature that is new in the latest version of the Evernote app is “Places”, which allows you to sort the files, photos, audio or video you have created by the location where you created them. So if you need some organization in your life, Evernote is the app for you. Candy Crush Soda Saga The original Candy Crush Saga took the world by storm, leaving millions addicted to its endless candy-popping levels. But now there is a new challenge: Candy Crush Soda Saga. The app is similar to the original, but different enough to draw you in with a few new features. The app is still a match-3 game, which means that you have to move a piece of candy until there are three matching ones. There are a few new features, though, such as soda bottles, which burst into purple liquid when you match three of them. There are also hidden gummy (粘性的) bears in this new version, and to complete the levels, you must clear the candies to reveal the hidden bear. These new features make the game a little harder than the old version, and you can expect to spend more time on each level. So if you liked the original Candy Crush game, Candy Crush Soda Saga will be a new treat with much of the same fun as before. Moment Cam Moment Cam brings you some of the most useful and wanted features a camera app can have, such as adjusting the flash, sequence shots (连拍), adjusting the timer, and selecting different-sized frames for photo sharing sites. But what sets the app apart from all the others is the selection of simple, minimal buttons that you hardly notice are there. The best thing about the app is not what it does, but what it leaves out. For once this app is not full of too many confusing and useless features. Instead, it is simple, clean, and easy to use. If you love taking photos on your phone, Moment Cam might be just what you never knew you were looking for. Lychee FM You may have listened to a lot of radio programs. Do you now dream of making your own? With Lychee FM, you no longer need expensive hardware and complex software to do just that. You can record your shows and finish editing them within the app. Then you can upload your program to all the listeners on Lychee FM or share it through your social networks. Apart from making your own programs, you can also listen to more than 15,000 stations through Lychee FM. One such popular show is called nühanzi, meaning “tough girls”. It discusses how women can handle just about everything. There are also shows on many other topics like sports, comedy, and music. The hosts include famous people such as music producer Gao Xiaosong, and many other creative people.

第二节 书面表达（满分 25 分） 请阅读下面短文, 并按照要求用英语写一篇 150 词左右的文章。 Following a four-day meeting of the Communist Party of China Central Committee in Beijing, the central government announces that China allows two children for every couple. The People's Congress at provincial level or its standing committee has revised local regulations or made new ones, with the support and guidance of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, Jiang said. "The number of new births will definitely increase in the coming years and we estimate that the peak will be over 20 million newborn babies," said Wang Pei'an, vice-minister of the National Health and Family Planning Commission. At present, about 60 percent of China's child-bearing women are over 35 years old, which means an increase of 'elderly' mothers will be witnessed in China in the next few years, Wang said in a news release on Friday. "It's safe to say that the two-child policy won't bring huge pressure on food security and basic public services, such as health, education and employment," Wang said. He estimated that another 30 million working people aged between 15 and 59 will be added by 2050. "It will benefit economic growth in the long term," Wang added. 【写作内容】 1. 用约 30 个单词写出上文概要； 2. 用约 120 个单词就“二胎政策”这一话题谈谈你的看法，内容包括： （1） 你同意你父母亲生二胎吗？表明你的态度并说明理由（至少 2 点） ； （2） 试分析中国实行二胎政策的好处。 （至少两点） 参考词汇：兄弟姐妹：sibling

On a personal note, the long-awaited move immediately excited me, because having a sibling is what I have been dreaming about. With a sibling around, never will I feel lonely. In addition, I can shoulder part of the responsibility to take care of the baby, and thus learn to take care of others. Above all, I can share my joys and sorrows with another family member. In the same way, the new policy means much more than giving children. It is expected to help to change China’s negative population trends. As is mentioned in the passage, the two-child policy is bound to increase the fertility rate and control the aging population. Besides, it will also help to solve an imbalance between boys and girls.

All restaurants in America accept cash for payment, and most also accept credit cards. You will seldom find a restaurant that accepts checks. It is common to have to wait for a table in a popular restaurant. There are many popular restaurants that do not accept reservations, or will only accept reservations for large parties, for example, six or more people. Many restaurants in America have a license to serve alcohol. The drinking age in America is 21. Tipping is another common custom. American restaurants do not add a service charge to the bill. Therefore, it is expected that the customer will leave a tip for the server. The common practice is to leave a tip that is equal to 15% of the total bill for acceptable service, and about 20% for superior service. Smoking in America is not always considered to be a good social habit. Smoking in public is not as common in America as in many other countries. Generally, Americans smoke less than Europeans and much less than Asians. It is a fact that smoking is becoming less and less socially acceptable. Smoking is forbidden in many places. The legal smoking age in America is 18.
