u for your e-mail. The educational systems in our two countries are quite different. In our school, each student belongs to a fixed class. We have all the lessons together in the fixed class. Each class has a head teacher. Not only does he teach us one subject but also he takes care of our daily life at school. All the classmates stay together for three years like brothers and sisters in a big family, thus enjoying a very good relationship. We hold a lot of activities inside our class. Last year‘s picnic impressed everyone in our class. We sang, danced, and played games. What great fun! However, sometimes our head teacher watches us so strictly that we are not allowed some more creative projects. How about your system? Could you give me a brief introduction? Yours sincerely, Li Hua 二、假定你是李华，最近你的英国网友 Julier 在社区志愿者服务工作中右脚受伤，不能继续 做志愿者工作，为此心情沮丧。你决定写一封安慰信发送至她的电子信箱。内容应包括： （1）获悉所发生的事情及自己的心情； （2）鼓励和安慰对方； （3）提出两条康复建议； （4）祝她早日康复。 Dear Julier， How are you?

B (CDB) Dear Ms.Smith, It is with great interest and enthusiasm that I am applying for the arts education internship (实 习)advertised in Sunday‘s New York Times. This position is exactly what I am looking for and an ideal opportunity for me to use my knowledge，educational background and experience. My arts education at Pratt Institute has helped me develop a firm foundation in the arts. The courses I have completed at Pratt，along with my study abroad in Paris，has prepared me well for a position in arts education. I have always enjoyed a passion for the arts but my undergraduate (本 科)education has taken my interest to a whole new level. I not only enjoy doing art but I find myself even more enthusiastic when I have the opportunity to teach what I have learned. For the past two summers I have worked directly with children at City Arts. These experiences were amazing since my responsibilities included planning and directing major projects that were planned for the summer program that goes on each year for local children interested in the arts. I was given a concept at the beginning of each summer and I had complete control of how the projects were to be completed. The children were the creative force and of ten were the inspiration for the artwork that was eventually presented to the public. I am very excited about the summer opportunity with the Children‘s Museum of the Arts since I know that I can definitely make a positive contribution while doing what I love—teaching art to children. I will contact you in one week to discuss my candidacy(候选资格)and see if you have any questions about my education or experience. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely， Samantha R.Gray 1. What is Gray‘s purpose of writing this letter? A. To advertise for herself in New York Times. B. To show her great enthusiasm for City Arts. C.

C（BDCB） In December of 1992.I was a happy husband and father of two young children. A month later，I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia(急性白血病). After two years of chemo(化疗)that helped control the disease，my body was weak and lifeless. I felt as if I were a puppet who needed help to lift his arms or hold up his head. I began to run. After six months my strength had come back. On one of my runs， one where I
felt I could run forever，I decided I was going to try to run a marathon. After telling my Dad about my plan，he told me of a program that trains people to run a marathon，while raising funds for Leukemia research at the same time. So that summer，through the Leukemia Society‘s Team in Training program，I started to train for the Marine Corps Marathon. During mile after mile of uncertainty，the day finally came to run the marathon. On October 27， 1996， at 8 A.M.， along with l9,000 other brave souls I started on a 26.2-mile journey that I will never forget. I first saw my wife Patty at the six-mile mark . She seemed happy that I was still looking as if I knew what I was doing， and having a good time doing it. At Mile l7， my mind was going back to those two horrible years that tried to bring my family and me down. I saw her again. The concern in her face told me she knew I was starting to struggle. I felt as if we were thinking the same，nine more miles and these last few years will be behind us. That thought alone pulled me forward. Mile 22，23，slowing but going，24，25，then there it was. The Iwo Jima War Memorial. I have seen nothing so grand and inspiring in my life. Three hours and forty-one minutes after I started，I crossed what I think has to be the most fitting finish line in all of road racing! That night the Leukemia Society gave me a pin at a post-race party that simply says， ―Leukemia 26.2‖. If God wills， my cancer may once again take away my hair and my strength， maybe even my life. But it can never take away my pin，or the fact that I am a marathoner. 1. The writer decided to run a marathon because __________ . A. he wanted to raise money for Leukemia research B. he believed he was able to take the challenge C. he hoped to recover his strength through training D. his dad knew about the race and made the suggestion 2. Which statement is RIGHT about the writer? A. He has always been dreaming of becoming a marathoner. B. The training he took that summer well prepared him for the race. C. Those running in the race were mostly Leukemia patients like him . D. His wife was with him during the marathon to give him support. 3. Why does the writer think the finish line is the most fitting? A. Because running a marathon is the most suitable sport for him. B. Because the memorial is the most powerful construction he has seen. C. Because he considers it a victory over his disease to finish the race. D. Because 26.2 miles is the most reasonable distance for road racing. 4. Which of the following can best describe the writer? A. Optimistic and outspoken C. Generous and easy-going B. Strong-willed and determined D. Brave and warm-hearted D (DAAB) Coral reefs(珊瑚礁)are not just beautiful to look at，but also very useful. They shelter nearly 25％ of ocean life and provide food for billions of people. However, like many other species，this amazing ecosystem(生态系统)is in danger of dying out!
There are two main reasons for the destruction—the rising carbon dioxide levels caused by global warming as well as human influences like bottom operation. While not much can be done about the former，the loss caused by the latter can be reduced. Bottom operation involves dropping nets to the ocean bed and then dragging them up when filled with fish. This action damaged the ocean floor，causing the coral branches to separate from the reefs. While that is very discouraging，the good news is that if these branches are found quickly，they can be saved. At present，that work is being performed by volunteer divers. But the method has only limited success because they cannot stay long underwater, nor reach depths of over 200 meters where some of the deep-sea coral grows. However，this is not the case for Coralbots—the robots that can constantly seek out broken branches. A team of ?coralbots‘，each individually working to simple rules will piece together damaged bits of coral, allowing them to regrow. They are programmed to be able to distinguish between other things and the coral. The robots work together in groups，similar to bees. If one coralbot is damaged then the others will still be able to complete the task. Dr Lea-Anne Henry said ： ―The project of using coralbots offers us the possibility to restore(修复)the function of reefs. It is in the final stage of testing. Once ready, the researchers hope to build hundreds of them and use them effectively in the waters off Scotland and then hopefully in the oceans across the world.‖ 1. Which of the following is a cause of the danger that coral reefs are facing? A. The appearance of new creatures. C. The activities of volunteer divers. A. can stay longer underwater C. can distinguish what is coral A. Coralbots B. Broken branches B. The seriously polluted sea water. D. Human activities like bottom operation. B. must work as bees do D. can never be damaged C. Working bees D. Bits of coral
2. Compared with volunteer divers，coralbots ______________.
3. The underlined word ―them‖ in the last paragraph refers to ______________. 4. We can infer from the passage that _______________. A. bottom operation has affected most underwater creatures B. broken branches of coral can regrow if saved in time C. hundreds of the coralbots have worked well in the oceans D. with the coralbots all damaged coral reefs can be restored E (ABDC) Film director James Cameron first became interested in sea exploration when he was a little boy. His love for the ocean grew after he made the 1989 undersea adventure film The Abyss and the 1997 blockbuster Titanic，one of the most successful movies of all time. Following that big success，James Cameron decided to put his film career on hold to become an explorer. In 2012， James Cameron made a journey to the deepest spot in the Mariana Trench， known as Challenger Deep. And now the great journey has been made into a documentary film，named James Cameron‘s Deep-sea Challenger 3D. In James Cameron‘s fantasy films，such as Avatar and The Abyss，the unexplored areas are decorated in colors and full of danger. But on his dive into Challenger Deep，the reality proved far
different: white, deserted and dull. ―I felt like I had gone to another planet,‖ Cameron said after returning from the cold and dark place in the Western Pacific Ocean， nearly 7 miles below the surface. ―I really have a sense of being separated and realize how tiny I am down in this big, black and unexplored place.‖ Cameron captured(获取)the moon-like landscape of the deep sea and documented the sea creatures he observed in the ocean. James Cameron‘s Deep—sea Challenger 3D tells the story of Cameron‘ s journey. It is a film about determination，danger and the ocean‘s greatest depths. The movie shows a unique insight into Cameron‘s world when he makes his dream a reality and makes history by becoming the first person to travel alone to the deepest point on the planet. It‘s an exciting film and inspiring reminder that our beautiful planet still has a lot to explore. 1. When did James Cameron become interested in the ocean? A. When he was in his childhood. B. After his films The Abyss and Titanic. C. After he achieved great Success in movies. D. When he began to explore the deep sea alone. 2. What is the unexplored ocean like? A. Colorful and dangerous. C. White and attractive. A. It is a film about the exploration of ocean creatures. B. It is a story about Cameron‘s film-making dream. C. It aims to attract more people to explore the deep sea. D. It tells us about James‘ journey into Challenger Deep. 4. What is the best title for this passage? A. The great dream of a film director B. A film director exploring deep sea C. James Cameron and his documentary film D. The first person to make films about the deep sea F (CDAB) If you‘re secretly worried about your smartphone addiction, then the new NoPhone might be just the thing you need. It looks and feels exactly like a smartphone，but it does nothing. It's just a piece of plastic that you can carry around in your hand to fool yourself. Dutch designer Lngmar Larsen came up with the idea as a joke along with his two friends. To their great surprise，the idea received a lot of attention online and people from all over the world started placing requests for NoPhones of their own. So that‘s when the three friends decided to turn to collect enough fund for mass production. NoPhone is currently a prototype(模型)that will cost only $12 once it hits the market. It is 5.5 inches high，2.6 inches wide and 0.29 inches thick, bringing it quite close to the latest smartphones on the market. It is described as ―battery free‖ ， ―no upgrades necessary‖ ， ―shatterproof(抗震)‖, ―waterproof'‘ and ―an alternative to constant hand-to-phone contact that
B. Boring and deserted. D. Small and dull.
3. What can we know about James Cameron‘s Deep-sea Challenger 3D?
allows you to stay connected with the real world‖. ―Phone addiction is everywhere.‖ the designers insist. ―It‘s ruining your dates. It‘s distracting you at concerts. It‘s blocking sidewalks. Now, there is a real solution. With a thin,light and completely wireless design, the NoPhone acts as a substitute to any smart mobile device, enabling you to always have a phone to hold without giving up potential engagement with your direct environment.‖ If you‘re interested in NoPhone, but concerned about not being able to take selfies(自拍) anymore. Don‘t feel upset. The makers do have an upgrade at no extra charge—the mirror sticker. That way, they say, you can enjoy ?real-time‘ selfies with your friends when they‘re standing right behind you. 1. What can NoPhone do for people according to the text? A.

第二节 1（FCDAB） Do you ever do homework while listening to music, or watch TV while texting friend? It may seem like an obvious question since most of us multitask all the time. But according to a recent study published in PLOS ONE, using a number of media devices at the same time could be changing our brains. Researchers first asked 75 adults about how often they spent time multitasking between different kinds of media. control emotions. 72 71 Those who reported heavier media multitasking had less gray matter in their brains. Gray matter is the part of the brain that helps to deal with information and We can‘t be sure, according to researchers. They say that the results only show a link. They are unsure whether multitasking reduces gray matter. ―Media multitasking is becoming more popular in our lives and there is increasing concern about its influence on our well-being,‖ said British scientist Kep Kee Loh, who directed the study. Loh says that more study is needed to support the idea that our behaviors are changing our brains. 73 In 2012,a study by Michigan State University in the US found that people using several
media devices at the same time were more likely to be depressed. 74 But no matter what, you should consider limiting yourself to one screen at a time, the Huffington Post reported. Multitasking doesn‘t actually work if you are trying to be more efficient. You‘re going from one action to another instead of truly doing two things at a time. 75 Once you‘ve slowed down, it can be hard to pick up where you left off. If you want to finish a list of jobs, ―set goals, establish a routine, and take regular breaks‖, suggested The Huffington Post. A. It seems that more research is needed. B. It wastes your energy and slows you down. C. So is multitasking really ruining our brains? D. But if it‘s true, it could support earlier studies. E.
