Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who wrote the story of the detective(侦探) Sherlock Holmes, was having a trip in Europe. One day he got out of the railway station and climbed into a taxi. Before he could say a word, the driver turned to him and asked, “Where can I take you, Mr. Doyle?” Doyle was rather surprised. He asked the driver if he had ever seen him before. “No, sir,” the driver replied, “I have never seen you before.” Then he explained, “This morning’s newspaper had a story about your being on vacation in Marseilles. This is the taxi stop where people who return from Marseilles always come. Your skin color tells me you have been on vacation. The ink spot on your right fingers suggests to me that you are a writer. Your clothes are very English, not French. Adding up all those pieces of information, I conclude that you are Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.” “This is truly surprising!” the writer cried out. “You are a real-life copy to my fictional(虚构 的) story, Sherlock Holmes!” “And there is one other thing,” the driver added, with a smile on his face. “What’s that?” “Your name is on the front of your suitcase.” 41.

How important can a fifteen-year-old boy’s work be? Well Louis Braille’s work changed the world. Born in a small town near Paris in 1809, shortly after his third birthday Louis blinded himself in one eye while playing with a sharp pointed tool in his father’s workshop. He soon lost the sight in his other eye when the infection(感染) spread. He wanted to go to school, but in his small town there was no school for him. At that time, blind people did not get any school education. Braille went to Paris to study, but there were few books for the blind.
Louis knew that books were the key to learning. He struggled with ideas for three years. Finally, at fifteen, he invented an alphabet made with raised dots(点). Blind people could “read” by feeling the patterns of the dots. Being able to read Braille allows blind children to learn together with the sighted at school, and go on to get jobs. It allows people who lose their on in life the chance to continue to read, learn and get information. 46. Braille got blind as a result of _________. A. an illness B. an accident C. a party D. a fired 47. From the passage we know in Braille’s day, _________ A. there were no schools in the town B. none of blind could go to school C. there were few books for the blind D. blind children could read by talking 48.

Each year, Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday on the fourth Thursday of November. It celebrates the first meeting between Europeans and Native American Indians over 200 years ago. Most families follow traditions begun on the first Thanksgiving, like eating turkey but many have their own traditions that they follow each year. Here are some of the common traditions associated with "Turkey Day." One of the best things about Thanksgiving is spending time with family. Many people live far from family members and travel long distances by car, train, or plane to be with their loved ones. Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year! Traditional foods are a large part of Thanksgiving celebrations. Many families include the entire family in the food preparation. Traditional foods include turkey, sauces, sweet potatoes, cornbread, and mashed potatoes. Many people serve apple pie for dessert at the end of the meal. Some families like breaking the turkey's wishbone as part of their celebration. Two people each take one end of the bone, make a wish, and pull. Whoever ends up with the larger part of the bone gets their wish! Many generous folks like to help the poor during Thanksgiving. Some people volunteer to serve food for the homeless. Television also plays a part in Thanksgiving celebrations. Many families watch the New York City Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade includes marching bands, songs and giant balloons! But the thing most people do on Thanksgiving, second only to eating turkey, is watching football games on TV.

Hillary Clinton “No matter the difficulties you face, work hard and never give up.” These words perfectly describe the life and career of one of the most successful women in the history of the United States, Hillary Clinton. Hillary was born in 1947 and from an early age it was clear she was both diligent and very clever. She was accepted into one of America’s most famous universities, Yale, where she studied politics and law, something very unusual for a woman at that time. There, many of her male classmates and teachers looked down on her but they changed their minds when Hillary graduated near the top of her class. While studying at university she met and fell in love with a young man called Bill Clinton, whom she married in 1975. Twenty seven years later Bill would become the 42nd President of the United States. Bill Clinton often said he valued Hillary’s advice more than anyone else’s and that she was in fact even cleverer than him. He put Hillary in charge of improving the hospital system in America, which made some of his opponents very angry. In 2000, as Bill was leaving the Presidency, Hillary decided that if she wanted things to improve she would have to become a political leader herself. Once more, people doubted her. They said she would never win but that year she became the first woman to be elected into the US Senate from New York. She had proved her critics wrong again. In 2008 she competed against Barak Obama to become the Democratic Party candidate for US President. Although she lost to Barak it was a very close contest and more than 18 million people supported her. No woman has ever some so close to before. And who knows, maybe one day she will become President, because Hillary Clinton never gives up. 56. What word best describes Hillary Clinton’s character?

I am writing to tell you about the discussion we’ve had about whether to board in the school or at home. At the beginning of this term, my parents and teachers asked me to board in the school. They say it will be very convenient for me to ask questions whenever and wherever. Besides, they think boarding will make it possible to make full of use of my night time, and that I can also develop the ability to look after myself. However, I have my own thought. Staying at home in the evening, I will have more time to work at my lessons. At the same time, I can learn what I think I’m not good at. I really don’t know what to do. Please give me your advice! Yours, Li Hua
