I also think my work is important. There was a time when I thought I would never have that sort of career. I wasn’t an excellent student because I didn’t do much schoolwork. In my final term I started thinking what I might do and found I didn’t have much to offer. I just accepted that I wasn’t the type to have a career. I then found myself a job, looking after two little girls. It wasn’t too bad at first. But the problems began when I agreed to live in, so that I would be there if my boss had to go out for business in the evening. We agreed that if I had to work extra hours one week, she’d give me time off the next. But unfortunately, it didn’t often work out. I was getting extremely tired and fed up, because I had too many late nights and early mornings with the children.

Peop1e know little about Kenya, but they know of Treetops. When King George VI died, Princess Elizabeth was staying on the Treetops, and when she came down from there, ―She succeeded him as the queen of the country‖. The hotel is in the middle of the forest, and it shows the pleasure of Africa. When you visit it, you will be sent into the heart of the forest by hotel buses, and then a guide, with a gun to protect you against big game, will go with you to the Treetops. Before and after dinner, for the whole night if you wish, you can sit on the corridor(走廊), watching animals come to the water pool. The earliest hotel Treetops was built round a large tree on the opposite side of the water, but that was destroyed by fire and the new hotel Treetops, which is built round several trees, is much bigger. The dining room at Treetops is small, and the waiters cannot walk round to serve guests, so a clever ―railway service‖ has been invented. Guests take their food as it passes slowly in front of them, along a line in the center of the table. There are many animals around the Treetops. When you visit them, you can see: ---Animals and their babies are waiting to greet the guests. ---Animals, enjoying the Treetops pool in the daylight. ---A long bodied, long ring tailed very active cat-like animal is a special one coming out at night. He hunts and eats anything he can catch and is very destructive. He lives in the trees at

Treetops. He comes for his food every evening. Do not get too near to him, as his teeth and claws（爪）can do you harm. These animals can be trained and become lovely pets. 64. The underlined word ―succeeded‖ in Paragraph 1 probably means ―_________‖. A. did what she was trying to do B. gained her purpose C. replaced someone in an important position D. completed an easy task 65. According to the third paragraph, ―railway service‖ actually refers to __________. A. the service provided at the railway station B. the supply of food on the train C. the service provided along the railway D. the supply of food along a moving line 66. Which of the following statements about ―the cat-like animal‖ is WRONG? A. It comes for food only at night. B. It lives in the trees at Treetops. C. Its teeth and claws can do people harm. D. It can catch any other animal in the forest. 67. We can learn from the text that the guests _______________. A. will be protected by a guide in the forest B. can play with the cat-like animals C. can have parties in the dinning room D. could not sit on the corridor at night D Fear is an emotion like others such as happiness, anger, hurt and sadness. We need emotions to process information we receive and decide how to respond. Being afraid of fast cars, for example, is something that might protect us from harm. Being afraid of the consequence of a choice may prevent us getting into trouble. Fears in young children commonly center on certain animals like snakes or big dogs. Fears are caused often because of experiences or ideas expressed by others, and at times, the media. Many normal fears during the early years, like men with beards, or large dogs, disappear with age. Those relating to personal failure and ridicule (嘲笑) remain through adulthood and may need special help to overcome. Children’s fears are often trivial, but that doesn’t mean they should be ignored. They need to be recognized and accepted as real for that child. Only when we help children understand their fears can they grow normally in their ability to deal with them. Research shows that as a child grows up, the center of his fears changes a lot. Things like divorce, a teacher who ―shouted at me‖, people with guns, bullies, big boys, or ―making fun of me‖ top the list of childhood fears. We can not always prevent these experiences from happening, but it’s essential that children be allowed to freely express their emotions without judgment. Sympathy and a caring listener will help ease the pain of these fears. Read books and stories to your child about children who have experienced similar fears. This helps children talk about their fears and find ways to cope. With all emotions, fears become less of a problem for children as they gain self-confidence and they find that fear is normal and can be dealt with. 68. The underlined word ―trivial‖ in the third paragraph probably means ―_______‖. A. small B. serious C. harmful D. common

A. some childhood fears may have a lasting influence B. children should avoid the media to reduce their fear C. fears can be judged according to the environment D. children with similar fears can communicate easily 70.

The topic of my speech is ―Thank you, mum.‖ My life has been blessed with a mother who offers me her unconditional love. My mum is an ordinary housewife. I highly appreciate her kind consideration. She often keeps me company, cooks tasty dinners for me and makes my room clean. Above all, whenever I get upset, she listens to me and comforts me until I cheer up. I’m fortunate to have such a caring mother. Actually, all of us have someone who cares about us so much. So do not forget to show our love in return. For me, either a small talk with Mum or a cup of tea for her will make her happy.

Most children work hard in school since they have to take various exams. After school they don’t want to stay at home reading books any more. Instead, they put aside their schoolbags and go quickly to some quiet street corner to play games. Some old people get up early in the morning and go to parks to read newspapers. After breakfast, they go to horse races, dog races or even car races. If they win, they can buy themselves a good dinner. In the evening, they stay at home, watching TV, sometimes with their grandchildren. Young people prefer to go on outings during the holidays. On weekends, they go to the seashore for swimming or to the forest for hunting and camping, or mountainous areas for picnicking. Then on Sunday evening, they start their long drive back home on the highways. Nobody seems in a hurry.
