On Saturday, November 14th, 2015, Bowdery shared on Facebook her terrifying and heartbreaking account of being inside the Bataclan music venue on Friday night when more than 82 people were killed by gunmen. In the post, Bowdery writes that when the gunfire first started, she thought it was just part of the show. “You never think it will happen to you. It was just a Friday night at a rock show. The atmosphere was so happy and everyone was dancing and smiling. And then when the men came through the front entrance and began the shooting, we naively believed it was all part of the show. It wasn?t just a terrorist attack, it was a massacre （屠杀） . Dozens of people were shot right in front of me. Pools of blood filled the floor.” She says she lay down on the floor of the club for over an hour, pretending to be dead and trying not to breathe. “Shocked and alone, I pretended to be dead for over an hour, lying among people who could see their loved ones motionless. Holding my breath, trying not to move, not to cry — not to give those men the fear they longed to see. I was incredibly lucky to survive. But so many didn?t. The people who had been there for the exact same reasons as I — to have a fun Friday night were innocent. This world is cruel. And acts like this are supposed to highlight the depravity of humans and the images of those men hunting us will haunt me for the rest of my life. I expected any moment for someone to say it was just a nightmare.” Bowdery also describes the heroes of the night: the strangers who helped her, the friend who bought her new clothes so she wouldn?t have to wear her blood stained top. She concludes: “It is up to us to be better people. To live lives that the innocent victims of this tragedy dreamt about but sadly will now never be able to fulfill.” The post has been shared almost half a million times in the last 24 hours. 24. Why did Bowdery lie down on the floor? A. Because the gunmen asked her to lie down, B. Because she was sad and lonely.
C. Because she wanted to survive the attack. D. Because she was tired after dancing. 25. What is Bowdery?s attitude towards the attack? A. Indifferent. B. Tolerant. C. Sympathetic. D. Critical. 26. Which of the following statements is TRUE? A. Bowdery comes from Paris. B. The gunfire was part of the show on Friday night. C. The gunfire happened after the rock show was over. D. The terrible experience will undoubtedly affect her life. 27. It can be inferred from the passage that __________. A. her post has caused great concern B. only she survived the terrorist attack C. the gunmen will haunt her some day D. the victims lived a sad life before that night C He was the man who inspired the Beat Generation — and nearly half a century after his death Jack Kerouac is still receiving grateful letters from his fans. Most letters are sent in the post to his last home in St Petersburg, Florida — and the mail box in the front yard is full to bursting. But others are delivered by hand, put into the front door or on the doorstep. They usually thank the author of On The Road for inspiring them to travel and be independent. “You remind me to stay true to who you are and to nurture the wanderlust gene in all of us,” reads one letter, handwritten by ?Cindy? on butterfly and flower-decorated paper. She adds, “I hope you?re writing, unrestrained, with a shot and a beer.” Another, signed ?Friend of Jack?, reads, “I prefer to think of myself as a free spirit and a person who follows a path of her own choosing. You have always been my inspiration.” Kerouac, the creator of iconic characters such as Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, died at a St
Petersburg hospital in 1969, at the age of 47. His home, where he was living with his mother Gabrielle and his wife Stella, has become a pilgrimage (瞻仰) destination for hundreds of fans every year. Kerouac rocketed to fame at the age of 35, with the publication of On the Road in 1957. But after becoming famous and the figurehead of a counter-culture, he struggled with that fame and claimed that he only wanted people to read his books. Kerouac died just 12 years after On the Road was published. He was suffering from cirrhosis following years of excessive drinking (酗酒) — largely brought on by his love-hate relationship with fame. 28. The two letters mentioned in the passage suggest that __________. A. Kerouac liked drinking beer B. Kerouac often reminded his fans to travel C. Kerouac saved the lives of the Beat Generation D. Kerouac?s book encouraged and inspired his fans a lot 29. Kerouac?s fans express their love for him by the following ways except __________. A. mailing letters to his home B. delivering letters to his home in person C. visiting his house D. calling him to say thanks 30. According to the last two paragraphs, we know that __________. A. his fame brought him not only happiness but also troubles B. he died shortly after his book was published C. he didn?t want people to read other writers? books D. he developed a serious disease and abandoned himself to drinking 31. What is the main purpose of the passage? A. To explain what the Beat Generation is. B. To introduce Jack Kerouac and his influence on people. C. To share letters with readers. D. To persuade people not to drink too much. D
Graduates at a top UK university have been banned from throwing their mortarboards in the air over fears the falling hats could cause injuries. Students at the University of Birmingham have been told they are not allowed to throw their black caps in the air in celebration because of health and safety concerns. Those set to graduate later this summer have been told they could be ejected from the ceremony if they are seen following the tradition. In an email, students were told, “Throwing of caps is not to be permitted, due to health and safety.” Speaking to student newspaper, which immediately covered the ban, The Tab, Hannah Walker said: “It?s just surprising that the university is actively taking action against something that?s traditional. I personally don?t see the harm in it, and honestly don?t think anyone will take the ban seriously.” Seeing the report, gown and cap graduation rental company Ede and Ravenscroft said the ban was because a number of injuries had occurred in the past. A spokesperson said that over a number of years students had been injured by falling mortarboards. He added, “On a few occasions customers experienced minor injuries from falling mortarboards. We have therefore identified the throwing of hats as a risk to health and safety. As a responsible company we don?t want to condone any activity which could lead to someone being injured.” To those reactions, the university defended the decision, saying that the rule banning students from throwing their caps applied only to an event for graduating Classics students. A spokesperson of the university said: “The email in question does not refer to our formal graduation ceremonies but concerned a specific private event where space was restricted.” Recently, he also concluded that the University of Birmingham does not have a policy or ban on cap throwing during degree congregations. “We recognise that this is a time of celebration for our students and their families after years of hard work and dedication and want to ensure everyone has an enjoyable time.” 32. What does “it” in Paragraph 3 refer to __________. A. graduating from college
B. attending the ceremony C. throwing black caps D. taking the ban seriously 33. It can be inferred from the passage that __________. A. all the students at the university are allowed to throw caps in the air B. no one is allowed to throw caps in the air C. under no circumstance can the Classics students be allowed to throw caps D. graduates are allowed to throw caps during degree congregations 34. How did the rental company Ede and Ravenscroft react to the injuries? A. The company would stop producing mortarboards immediately. B. Though the injuries were not great, the company took them seriously. C. The company has identified the victims and got ready to make up for them. D. Considering those minor injuries, the company would make no response to them. 35. What is the correct order of the following statements about the development of the event? a. The falling hats had caused some injuries. b. The university made actions to defend its decision. c. The rental company confirmed the potential risk of throwing hats. e. Student newspaper reported the ban and someone put forward different opinions. f. The University of Birmingham told their students not to throw their black caps in the air in celebration. A. a, e, d, b, c B. a, e, d, c, b C. e, b, a, c, d D. e, a, b, c, d

第二节 书面表达（满分 25 分） 范文（122 words） According to the result of our survey on how the students in our school spend their weekend, we can read the data as follows. Few students are glued to their schoolwork any more. Instead, they prefer to surf on the internet, watch TV, go shopping rather than involve in sports games. Interest groups are available but not favorable. Personally, students are now freed from heavy burden but their spare time is not well
arranged. They are expected to spend some time on what they learn instead of hanging out. More time should be spent on green field. Besides, more interest groups should be established for students to widen their horizon. In conclusion, students should be more scheduled with colorful and fruitful activities.
