divided IV.书面表达。 （25 分） One possible version: As we all know, Senior Three students will experience various exams and it is hard to avoid failure sometimes, which greatly upsets them. Recently, our class had a heated discussion about failure in exams. Here are the results. We all agree that there are both advantages and disadvantages of failing in the exam. Generally speaking, it is widely believed that there are several positive aspects as follows. To begin with, it reminds students to devote themselves more to their studies. In addition, it helps students realize what aspects they are weak in, thus leading them to improve. However, some advantages may arise form failure in exams. Firstly, it ruins students’ self-confidence so badly that some of them even no longer study hard. And secondly, teachers and parents show their dissatisfaction with these students, which makes the matter worse. Faced with failure in exams, what I usually do is to turn to my teachers for help. They will always analyze my problems and give me some advice on how to deal with them. Their comfort and encouragement mean so much to me.
(Text 1) M: Only two days left until summer break! What are your plans, Jessica? W: I’m off to Canada for a camping trip. (1) What about you, Sam? M: I think I’ll stay here and relax. (Text 2) W: What are you guys laughing at? M: It’s this new movie called The Intership. It’s very funny. (2) (Text 3) W: I’m afraid we’ll have to cancel the trip, Grace. M: Yeah, this is much more important. You’ll have to go to the funeral. He was your uncle. (3) (Text 4) W: Benjamin promised to come for our party if he has time. M: He often does it, but he never seems to have time. So you had better not take his words seriously, otherwise you will get disappointed later. (4) (Text 5) W: I often mistake Mark for Tom in class. Can you tell them apart? M: No. They are twins, and many teachers make the same mistake like us. It is really a little embarrassing to make mistakes all the time in face of so many students. (Text 6) M: Look at all this bread! French, Italian... it all looks really good. I don’t kno w when America started its bread revolution, but I’m sure glad it happened. I could eat bread all day! W: Me, too. This isn’t the kind of bread we ate when we were young. That sliced bread had more artificial things in it than you can count! (6) M: Yeah, but our parents didn’t realize it was so unhealthy. These days, you can find a lot of freshly-baked bread with only four or five ingredients. W: So, what are we going to buy? That long loaf of bread looks really good. M: I’d rather have something lighter and thicker so I can make a nice big sandwich with it. (7) (Text 7)
M: Look at this place! If I didn’t know it was the city I grew up in, I’d swear I was somewhere else! (8) W: Yeah...so many houses are empty or broken down. It wasn’t like this when we were kids. M: We used to play ball in the streets all the time, but it looks so dangerous now. W: And ugly. Look at all that trash in the streets. (9) The wind just pushed it along. What a lonely place! M: This used to be a great city. People came from miles around to work in the shops and eat in the restaurants. What a sad sight! I guess when the glass making industry decided to move across the country where it’s cheaper, the quality of life here went away, too. W: Yeah, let’s go. There’s nothing left for us here. I’m getting depressed. (Text 8) W: George, why are you a vegetarian? Your whole family eats meat, except you. I can’t imagine how you chose to live this way. M: Oh, it happened a long time ago when I was about ten years old. We had some friends who lived on a small farm. They had chickens, goats, sheep, and a few cows. (10) One time, we were invited over for dinner. We came early so we could play before we ate. I was running around the yard with my friends, when I saw the father preparing the meal. He had just caught a chicken and was cutting off its head. I felt very sick when I saw him do it. (11) After that, I would think about the poor chicken every time I ate meat. I ate less and less meat, until I stopped for good when I was twelve years old. (12) W: I see. What did your parents think about your decision? M: Well, since it didn’t happen all at once, they probably learned to accept that I would be a vegetarian. It wasn’t easy for them ---especially for Mon, who had to cook differently for me. (Text 9) M: Mom, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the food in India. Ever since I got back from my trip, I’ve been dying for some real Indian food. (13) But there’s nothing around here. No restaurants serve the kinds of dishes I ate there. I’d have to go to a big city to find anything that comes close. In our town, they don’t even make spicy food! W: Well, Drew, why don’t you try making your own? (14) M: I wish I could! But I wouldn’t know where to start. W: I’ll help you look online for some recipes. M: How will we know which ones are good? W: We’ll try them, of course! After some practice, we’ll be able to tell which ones we’ll like best. W: But I doubt we’ll find everything we need in the grocery stores. I’m sure they use many
unusual spices in India. M: We will start simply. I know I’ve seen some Thai spices at the market--- maybe some of them will be useful. If we find that those aren’t enough, we can order some online. There must be Indian grocery store somewhere in American that will ship them. (15) If worse comes to worst, I’ll ask my brother in New York to look around. (16) He should be able to find a place that sells Indian spices! W: Thanks, Mom! This is gonna be fun! I can’t wait to start cooking! (Text 10) Whoever dreamed up the idea of a subway knew what it means to live in a city. Study the faces of the subway riders, and you’ll see what I mean. They are all traveling in a busy world that exists under another busy world. The New York subway is one of the largest public transportation systems in the world. It is also one of the oldest --- it has been underneath this city for 110 years now. (17) I’ve been riding it for half that time. When I was a kid, there wasn’t any fear---only adventure. Subways were for dreaming. And I would stand at the window of the front car and dream through the great network of tunnels, watching the red and green lights go by. A subway is like a secret, a child’s game. You go in one hole and you come out another. You move fast--- much faster than a taxi, or walking or running. Years ago, a woman named Rosie Ruiz tried to steal a victory in the New York Marathon by taking s subway to the finish line. (18) Rosie was right. The subway was faster. In the 1960s, the subway got to be a dangerous place. (19) Subways have been made a great deal safer since then. I think what people like most about the subway, apart from basic transportation, still comes from the magic feeling of rushing around fast in a train underground. (20)
