B One day, not too long ago, the employees of a large company in St. Louis, Missouri returned from their lunch break and were greeted with a sign on the front door.

We __2__ you to join the funeral in the room that has been __3__ in the gym.” At first everyone was sad to __4__ that one of their colleagues had died, __5__ after a while they started getting __6__ about who this person might be. The excitement __7__ as the employees arrived at the gym to pay their last __8__. Everyone wondered, “Who is this person that was hindering my growth? Well, __9__ he’s no longer

here!” One by one the __10__ got closer to the coffin(棺材) and when they looked inside it, they __11__ became speechless. They stood over the coffin, __12__ into silence, as if someone had __13__ the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin—everyone who looked inside it could see himself. There was also a __14__ next to the mirror that __15__, “There is only one person who is capable to __16__ limits to your growth: it is YOU.” You are the only person who can revolutionize your __17__. You are the only person who can __18__ your happiness, realization and success. You are the only person who can help yourself. Your life does not change when your boss changes, your friends change, your parents change, your partner changes or your company changes.

20.A. reasonable B. responsible C. suitable [答案] 一个牌子上写着:一位阻挡你晋升的人昨天去世了,诚邀各位参加葬礼。这吸引了所有 员工,伤心之余,人们禁不住猜想:究竟是谁阻挡了自己前进的脚步呢?在与遗体告别时, 让所有人都大吃一惊的是,棺材里是一面镜子和一条标语,它告诉每个人:阻挡你前进的人 不是别人而是你自己。 1.B。由第三段的第二句“who is this person that was hindering my growth”可推测用 progress,与 growth 同义。 2.C。根据后面的 funeral“葬礼”可知为“邀请”,而不能勉强。 3.B。指灵堂设在已经布置好的房间里。 4.A。员工得知自己的一个同事去世了,很伤心。所以用 learn,意思为“得知”。 5.D。前后句之间有转折意味,所以用 but。 6.C。根据文意可知此处为人们急切地想知道死者是谁。所以用 curious“好奇的”。 7.A。从上句可知人们对死者究竟是谁感到好奇,因此到了灵堂时,人们的情绪更高 了,所以用 grew。appear“出现,显得”;improve“改善,提高”;develop“发展,培养, 产生”。 8.D。员工们来参加葬礼向逝者告别。因此用 respects。 9.A。因为标语上说是一个阻碍自己晋升的人死了,所以人们心里尽管难过,但毕竟 那个人死了,心里有些许轻松,所以用 at least“至少”,表示让步。 D. valuable

10.A。由文章首句的 employees 可知答案。 11.D。因为从棺材里看到的与想象中的完全不一样,所以用“突然”,表达意外之意。 12.C。根据前面的 speechless 可知员工们很吃惊,所以这里用 shocked 符合语境,即 感到吃惊,然后是沉默。 13.B。与 soul 搭配,指触动了他们灵魂的最深处。用 touch。 14.B。根据写的内容可确定不是信,而是一条标语。 15.D。指通知,便条、信件等上面写着,用 say 或 read 表示,意思为“上面写着”。 16. 结合上文的 hindering 可推测应填 set, set limits to sb.意思为“限制某人”, A。 即“阻 挡某人”。 17.C。由最后一句的“Your life changes when YOU change...”可推测“只有你自己可 以彻底改变自己的生活”。 18.C。此处用 influence。只有你自己才可以左右你自己的幸福、成功等。 19.D。go beyond your limiting beliefs 指“超越这一看法的限制”,limiting beliefs 与员 工以前认为的“有人会阻挡自己”这一观点呼应。 20.B。be responsible for 表示“对??负有责任”。当你意识到自己是唯一对自己生 活负责的人时,你的生活就会改变。 C I was successful at my job. I worked very hard, but it __1__ me and my family a fabulous(极 好的) lifestyle. I’d worked for the same company for twenty years and had worked my way up to department director. __2__, one afternoon last May, I was called to the office, and it was __3__ explained to me that they were letting me go. I just sat there __4__ they talked on and all I could think was, “I’ve __5__.” I’d been so well respected; __6__ I was of no value. For six weeks, I was in a very __7__ place. I wandered around my house like a zombie(僵尸). I could __8__ things needed doing, but would not do anything. My beliefs in looking forward and seeing the positive(积极的) in everything __9__ me. Then, in late June, my youngest son’s football team made the city cup final. The year before, he’d been very sad when I __10__ the same final, so he was __11__ when I told him I’d go. Not only did they win, but the look on his face as he saw me __12__ him on was unbelievable. From then on, I spent the summer enjoying my sons and their passions(激情). I attended match after match and performances of my elder son’s band—I __13__ went to another city to watch him play. These moments were so __14__. My life had been so much devoted to __15__ for so long, and I felt __16__ that my sons were happy to welcome me into their world. __17__, being unemployed gave me back a sense of purpose—I was someone’s mum! I felt a sense of being __18__ again. Now I feel more positive about my professional __19__ and I’m getting on better with my family than I ever have. Losing my job made me realize just how

[答案] Evelyn 是苏格兰第一位打击乐器的女独奏演员,她靠自信与执着战胜了残疾,铸就了 梦想。 1.B。从下文可知,医生以及其他的人都认为她不能成为音乐家,因为她可能会变成 聋哑人,而她不让别人的观点影响自己。 2.C。take piano lessons“参加钢琴课的学习”。 3.B。从下文的 deaf 可以看出 Evelyn 渐渐失去了听觉。 4.D。失去听觉的原因是神经的损伤。 5.A。对音乐的爱好从没有离开过“我”。 6.D。从 even though...可以看出当时没有一位打击乐器的独奏演员,因此成为一位打 击乐器的独奏演员就成了 Evelyn 的目标。 7.B。为了弥补听觉的障碍,Evelyn 开始学习与众不同的“听”音乐的方法。 8.A。tell 在这里表示“识别,辨别”。 9.C。听不到,只能凭借想像力。 10.A。every sense that I have“我所有的感觉”。 11.C。Evelyn 决定成为一位音乐家而不是聋哑音乐家。 12.A。在这之前,还没有一位聋哑学生做到过(指成为一位音乐家),因此许多老师都 反对录取我。 13.D。见上题解析。 14.B。从下文的“and went on to...”可知:根据我的成绩,我最终被录取了。 15. 从下面的“with the academy’s highest honours”可知 Evelyn 以音乐学院的最优 C。 异的成绩毕业。 16.A。从下文可知:因为很少有专门为打击乐器的独奏演员而谱写的乐曲,Evelyn 亲 自谱写创作。 17.D。Evelyn 自己谱写乐曲的原因是可供打击乐器的独奏演员使用的乐曲很少。 18. Although 引导让步状语从句: B。 尽管医生认为“我”全聋, 但是并不意味着“我” 的爱好(passion)不能成为现实。 19.A。见上题解析。 20.D。Evelyn 通过亲身经历告诉我们不要受别人观点的牵绊,要保持热情,不停地追 求梦想。
