When she was offered a contract she burst into tears. Two years later Chang, 21, is a star. With the release of her debut album “Over the Rainbow” this year, she won the “Most Promising New Artist in Taiwan” at the CCTV-MTV Music Awards in July.

You should try fidgeting for a while. Those around you might not like it, but scratching (moving your nails against a part of your body) and twitching (moving suddenly and quickly when you don’t want to) is an important way of burning up calories . American researchers have found that some people’s squirming (continuously turn your body when nervous) and wigging (move in small movements, especially from side to side) equals several miles of slow running each day. The scientists, based at the National Institute of Health’s laboratory in Phenix, Arizona, are studying why some people get fat and other stay slim. In one study 177 people each spent 24 hours in a room in the institute where the amount of energy is measured by their oxygen and carbon dioxide levels. By the end of the day, some people had burned up 800 calories in toe-tapping, (moving the front part of your foot up and down) finger-drumming (hitting your fingers continuously and lightly against something hard) and other nervous habits. However, others had burned up only 100 calories. The researchers found that slim women fidget more than fat women, but there was no significant difference in men. Heavy people burn up more energy when they fidget than thin people do. 31. Which of the following can be used to explain the meaning of “fidgeting”? A. scratching and twitching B. squirming and wigging C. slow running D. moving one’s body nervously 32. According to the scientists, the reason why some people get fat and other people stay slim is that ____ . A. thin people burn up less calories than fat people B. fat people burn up more calories than thin people C. those who burn up more calories than others will be thinner

D. those who fidget more than others will be thinner ks5u 33. Scientists found in the experiment that _________ . A. the energy burned up by fat people when they fidget was more than that burned up by thin people when they fidget B. some people’s fidgeting burned up more than 800 calories, but some people’s fidgeting burned up less than 100 calories C. slim women fidget more than fat women but fat men fidget more than thin men D. thin men fidget more than fat men 34. If someone is thin in a pleasant way, we say they are __________. A. skinny B. bony C. slim D. underweight 35. Scientists think a fidget habit to be ___________. A. a way to lose fat B. a nervous habit annoying the people around C. a better exercise than slow running D. a habit of thin people C What makes one person more intelligent than another? What makes one person a genius, like the brilliant Albert Einstein, and another person a fool? Are people born intelligent or stupid, or is intelligence the result of where and how you live? These are very old questions and the answers to them are still not clear. We know, however, that just being born with a good mind is not enough. In some ways, the mind is like a leg or an arm muscle. It needs exercise. Mental (done with the mind) exercise is particularly important for young children. Many child psychologists (心理学家) think that parents should play with their children more often and give them problems to think about. The children are then more likely to grow up bright and intelligent. If, on the other hand, children are left alone a great deal with nothing to do, they are more likely to become dull and unintelligent. ks5u Parents should also be careful with what they say to young children. According to some psychologists, if parents are always telling a child that he or she is a fool or an idiot, then the child is more likely to keep doing silly and foolish things. So it is probably better for parents to say very positive things to their children, such as “That was a very clever thing you did” or “You are such a smart child”. 36. The words “intelligent” and “brilliant” in the first paragraph probably mean_______ while “dull” in the second paragraph means _______. A. bright and splendid; slow in thinking and understanding B. pretty and handsome; ordinary-looking C. great and important; common D. hopeful and helpful; careless 37. According to the context we can guess that a genius is ______ while an idiot is _______. A. a normal person; a funny person B. a strong person; a weak person C. a highly intelligent person; a foolish or weak-minded person D. a famous person; an ordinary person 38. A person ________ is more likely to become a genius.

A. whose parents are clever B. often thinking about difficult problems C. often helped by his parents and teachers D. born with a good brain and putting it into active use 39. It is better for parents ________. A. to praise and encourage their children more often B. to be hard on their children C. to leave their children alone with nothing to do D. to give their children as much help as possible 40. Which of the following is NOT true according to the article? A. Parents play an important part in their children’s growth. B. The less you use your mind the duller you may become. C. Intelligence is obviously the result of where and how you live. D. What makes a person bright or stupid is still under discussion. 第二节 信息匹配 (共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 阅读下列应用文及相关信息, 并按照要求匹配信息。 请在答题卡上将对应题号的相应选 项字母涂黑。 下面是英语的学习方法: A.

Finally the birds came to God and said, “If you will tie the burdens into small bundles, we’ll be glad to carry them for you. We are small but we would like to help.” So God fastened upon the back of each one a small bundle, and they all set out walking across the plain to their destination. They sang as they went, and did not seem to feel the weight of their burdens at all. Every day the burdens seemed lighter and lighter until the loads seems to be lifting the birds, instead of the birds carrying the burdens.

In our school, there are various kinds of activities, for example, arts and sports and playing football and reading stories are my favorites which do me lots of good. Besides building my body and enriching my knowledge, they also free me from the heavy work of study. My suggestions are that students should choose the activities which interest you and suit you. To schools, they should organize more activities for students and leave students more time for activities by giving them less homework. So, please actively take part in after-class activities, which will not only make your school life colorful, but also improve your learning. 第三节:读写任务(共 1 小题,满分 25 分) One possible version: Burdens Give Us Wings

The legend states that unlike other animals, the birds volunteered to help God carry the burdens to the destination merrily. Unexpectedly, wings replaced the loads afterwards, which enabled the birds to fly. It’s true that everyone, willingly or unwillingly, carries burdens of this or that kind, and I am no exception. I am burdened with endless homework, unsatisfactory performance, and sometimes disagreements with my family. But as I always focus on the sunny side of life, I see these inevitable burdens as opportunities to learn more knowledge, gain more experience and thus grow more and more mature. From my own perspective, taking advantage of the burdens properly, we can turn them into wings that help us fly closer and closer to our goals. For one thing, we should treat various burdens differently, only taking seriously those worth struggling for and letting go of the unimportant and unnecessary. For another, once we decide on a worthwhile goal, we should keep the faith that as long as we shoulder any loads with a light heart, we will make it eventually.ks5u In a word, burdens can give us wings if we treat them properly. ks5u
