every Saturday night. Dar was seventeen, and l was thirteen, when we first danced. He was one of the best dancers on the floor, and so was I. We always jitterbugged. No slow dancing for us; nothing remotely romantic. Our fathers would stand along the wall and watch. Every once in a while, Dar’s dad would smile a little and say, to no one in particular, but my dad could hear, “Boy, my kid can sure dance.” My dad never blinked an eye; he acted like he’d never heard. But a while later he would say, to no one in particular, “That girl of mine can sure dance.” Our dancing together stopped for five years while Dar was in the South Pacific in World War II. When we met again, Dar was twenty-two, and l was eighteen. We began to date and dance again. We were as good together as we remembered, and this time we added slow dancing. For us, life is a dance, a movement of rhythms, directions, stumbles, missteps, at times slow and precise, or fast and wild and joyous. We did all the steps. Two nights before Dar died, the family were with us. We all ate dinner together, and Dar sat with us. He hadn’t been able to eat for several days. After dinner, I put on a Nat King Cole tape. Dar took me in his arms, weak as he was, and we danced and smiled. No tears for us. We were doing what we had loved to do for more than fifty years. It was our last dance－forever unforgettable.1 wouldn’t have missed it for the world. 21. The author first danced with Dar when_________.

D. Dar returned from the South

C While most travelers aim to stay out of the hospital while on vacation, a growing number of medical tourists－people who combine treatment with travel － are crossing international borders for the purpose of getting medical services, which can range from a hip replacement to a tummy tuck. Widespread air travel, increasing healthcare costs in developed countries, long waiting lists and an ageing world population have
all contributed to a global increase in medical tourism in the past decade. And Asia takes the lead in terms of world market share. More than 89% of medical tourists travelled to Thailand, India or Singapore in 2010, with Bangkok and Singapore leading the pack. But the cost of hotel rooms and treatment are both far more expensive in Singapore than in the Thai capital, making Bangkok the most popular place for medical tourism in the world. Even after the serious floods of 2011, 19 million tourists visited Thailand in 2011, a 20% jump from 2010, with about 500,000 tourists travelling specifically for medical treatment. Given Thailand’s reputation for outstanding service, it is not hard to see why Bangkok has quickly become the medical tourism centre of Asia. The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), which began medical tourism in 2004, has a detailed medical tourism website that lists many of the most popular treatments available, including dental work, dermatology and cosmetic surgery, as well as listing reputed hospitals, making it easy for potential visitors to decide on a procedure. TAT has also recently partnered with Krungthai Bank, the national bank of Thailand, to offer tourists a card called the Miracle Thailand Card, which offers some medical and life insurance coverage in case of an accident. “The hospitals in Bangkok are some of the highest quality in the world，meeting US standards,” said Steven Lash, CEO of a US-based medical travel company that sends tourists to Bangkok as well as to seven other countries, including Turkey and Mexico. “All of the tourists we have sent to these hospitals have given us excellent feedback (反馈) on their procedures and their experiences at the hospitals.” 28. Medical tourism is so popular nowadays partly because_________. A. aged patients prefer to travel B. air travel is cheaper than before C. local hospitals lack advanced equipment D. medical treatment is expensive in some countries 29. Why is Bangkok’s medical tourism ahead of Singapore’s? A. Bangkok provides an excellent service at lower prices. B. Medical tourists in Bangkok get high health insurance.
C. The local authority in Bangkok has a good reputation. D. Bangkok has a detailed medical tourism website. 30. The author develops the third paragraph mainly by _________. A. giving figures C. using examples B. Presenting effects D. making comparisons
31. Steven Lash thinks Bangkok’s hospitals_________. A. are really excellent C. are famous mainly for their service the USA B. are welcomed by Americans D. are better than hospitals in
D The Puritans (清教徒) get a bad reputation in America－especially when it comes to alcohol. Mayflower, the first ship that came over from England to Massachusetts Bay, actually carried more beer than water. In fact the Founding Fathers of America liked a drink－Samuel Adams was a partner in his father’s brewery, and Thomas Jefferson was famous for importing European wines. Early Americans took a healthful small drink for breakfast, whiskey was a typical lunchtime drink, ale (麦芽酒) accompanied supper and the day ended with another drink called nightcap. Most Americans in 1790 consumed an average of 5.8 gallons of pure alcohol a year. In 1830, consumption reached 7.1 gallons a year and alcoholism was starting to have a serious influence on communities. Women and children might be in physical danger if the man of the house began drinking. If he became ill or lost his job through drinking, there was no social safety net to support or protect his family. Eventually, alcoholism was being treated as a disease. By the late 19th Century, support for Prohibition, banning the manufacture and sale of alcohol, was powerful. The first arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol was in 1897. On 16 January 1919, Prohibition was set into law. However, by the 1930s when American economy was experiencing a hard time it was widely believed that making alcohol legal again would provide badly-needed jobs and taxes. So in
February of 1933, Prohibition was ended. Still, Prohibition had a great influence on alcohol drinking in this country. In 1955, Americans drank an average of 2.3 gallons of pure alcohol a year. The Prohibition movement was still quite strong after Prohibition ended and it led to a lot of local prohibition on alcohol. The American presidency has done a lot to rehabilitate alcohol and make it respectable again. Presidents Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama can all be seen on film drinking socially and making official toasts with international celebrities. 32. Which is TRUE about the Puritans according to the passage? A. Their ancestors came to America to sell alcohol. B. They founded the breweries in European countries. C. They had a habit of alcohol drinking. D. They were the major importer of alcohol. 33. In what way was an alcoholic’s family affected by alcoholism? A. His family couldn’t afford the drink. B. His family might suffer financially. C. His wife and children might become ill. D. His family might not be treated equally. 34. What can be learned about Prohibition in America? A. It came into law in the 19th century. B. It discouraged alcohol drinking. C. Its effect disappeared after its removal. D. It failed to forbid drunk driving. 35. The passage mainly talks about ________． A. the brief history of alcohol drinking in America B. American presidents’ affection for alcohol drinking C. the Puritans’ bad reputation in America D. the reasons why Prohibition came into law
