Instead of being afraid, I was “pumped” and I very quickly found that all my 51 work was paying off. I was as fast a skater as anyone else on the ice, and I seemed to get the 52 to score.

It stood out among big and old coats. It had beautiful tailoring and an unbelievable price: $28. I looked at my son and we both said nothing, but John?s eyes shone. Dark, woolen topcoats were popular with teenage boys, but they could cost several hundred dollars new. This coat was even better. John tried it on and turned from side to side, eyeing himself in the mirror. The fit was perfect. John wore the coat to school the next day and came home with a big grin. “Did the kids like your coat?” I asked. “They loved it,” he said. Over the next few weeks, John changed. He was polite, less argumentative, more thoughtful, and on the whole much happier. “Good dinner, mom,” he would say every evening. Without a word of objection he would carry in wood for the stove. One day when I suggested that he might start on his homework before dinner, John, who always put things off, said: “You?re right. I guess I will.” When I mentioned this incident to one of his teachers, she joked that the coat must have changed him. John and I both know we should never mistake a person?s clothes for the real person within them. But there is something to be said for wearing a standard of excellence for the world to see, for practicing standards of excellence in thought, speech, and behavior, and for matching what is on the inside to what is on the outside. 56. What does the author try to express in the first paragraph? A. The coat looked like a magical coat. B. They were good at shopping. C. The coat was a real bargain.

D. They had the same taste in clothes. 57. What does the underlined word “grin” in Paragraph 2 probably mean? A. A wide smile. B. A worried look. C. A jealous spirit. D. A joking tone. 58. After John wore the new coat, the author found he _______. a. was happier and better-behaved b. received more praise from his teachers c. was willing to follow suggestions d. made rapid progress in study e. would say sweet words to please her A. a, b, c B. a, c, e C. b, d, e D. c, d, e 59. What message does the author intend to deliver in the article? A. We should not judge people by their appearance. B. Life is full of possibilities when we are young. C. It?s beneficial to try different things in our lives. D. What we wear could help shape who we are inside. B We are looking for energetic volunteers who might be willing to volunteer their time. It?s a great way to build your volunteer experience, get involved in your community, meet new people and show your pride. Computer Teacher The computer teacher will be responsible for teaching older adults computer skills, including basic skills such as turning on computer or more media skills such as setting up email. This position requires patience, dedication and long hours on your feet. Computer skills needed. Ask Mandy, 01313377227. Meals on Wheels Do you have time in your schedule to make a difference in the lives of seniors in your community? Meals on Wheels drivers deliver nutritious lunchtime meals to homebound seniors on weekdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Our aim is to help seniors who are unable to go out themselves due to age or disability. A valid driver?s license and personal vehicle is required. Call Lucy,(781) 2727177. Tree Nursery Volunteer Tasks are different according to season, but may include: collecting tree seeds from ancient woodland, preparing seeds for sowing, planting trees and tree aftercare. Some of the work is physical and outdoors, others such as seed preparation can be done indoors. No experience is necessary, but a knowledge or interest in botany would certainly be helpful. Ask Amrita, 07748623073. Photography Volunteer If you have a talent for photography, this may be the role for you. We need someone who can take great photos for posters and websites. We especially need photos of our events and volunteers. This is a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience. You?ll also gain the satisfaction of seeing your work being displayed on the National Trust website and in literature. Ask Sarah, 01248600954. 60. If you are interested in teaching, you can get in touch with ________.

A. Mandy B. Lucy C. Amrita D. Sarah 61. What do Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver for the seniors? A. Breakfast. B. Lunch. C. Supper. D. Snack. 62. Which kind of voluntary work doesn?t require special experience or skills? A. Computer Teacher. B. Meals on Wheels. C. Tree Nursery Volunteer. D. Photography Volunteer. C Do you have any skiing equipment you no longer need? A ski school in the far north of India could put it to good use. In March we published a photo story about the extraordinary Zsnskar region in northern India, which is cut off from the outside world for more than seven months of the year,and only accessible (可通行的)via a frozen river.We also included information about the limited use of skiing in the region and the recent creation of the Zanskar Ski School: “Despite the difficulties of travelling through the region when the snow comes,skiing hasn?t traditionally been used as a means of transport by the locals, largely because trees don't grow here, so there is little in the way of raw materials from which to make skis.In 1995, a group of British scientists in the region noticed the lack of skis and one of them returned to set up the Zanskar Ski School in Padam.The school provides lessons for a small fee and rents skis to the local people. Among the benefits that the school hopes to bring are improved education—children often find it difficult to get to school through the deep snow—and the possibility of offering ski tours to tourists in the future. far, So more than 300 local people have received training, local doctors and and policemen regularly borrow skis.” But what we weren't able to include in the article is that the ski school is always on the look out for old skiing equipment—particularly of a size suitable for children—and, I thought. Now the European ski season is drawing to a close,there might be a few of you out there who have some old equipment you'd like to see go to a good home.If that's the ease you can get in touch with the school via their website www.zanskarski school.org. 63. What's the purpose in writing the text? A. To raise money to develop this area B. To attract more tourists to the area C. To appeal to more locals to attend the school D. To ask people to give away their skis to the school 64. The local people don't use skiing to go about because . A. it is against the local custom B. they don't have the wood to make skis C. trees are in the way of the skiing route D. it is dangerous to go skiing in this region 65. Who would be the most helpful to the school now? A. People having old skiing equipment. B. Students in the Zanskar Ski School. C. Locals in Zanskar region. D. Tavellers enjoying skiing. 66. What can be the best title for the text? A. An extraordinary region in India B. A home for old skis

C. A good means of transport

D. A popular sport—skiing

Kelly Reeves was getting ready for a trip when her phone slipped into a sink full of water. Panic moment! She quickly picked up the wet phone and tried to turn it on, but nothing worked. Her first reaction? She got dressed, drove to the nearest store, and bought a new mobile at full price. A new study finds that fear of losing your phone is a common illness. About 66 percent of those surveyed suffer from nomophobia or “no mobile phone phobia”. Interestingly, more women worry about losing their phone than men. Fortunately, there?s a solution. The first step is to figure out if you have nomophobia. Checking your phone too often is one thing, but the true sign of a problem is that you can?t conduct business or go about your routine when the fear becomes so severe. Do you go to unusual lengths to make sure you have your phone? That?s another sign of a problem. If you find you check your phone plenty of times per hour, or a total of an hour per day, there may be a problem. Some of the treatments are similar to those for treating anxiety attacks: leaving the phone behind and not checking e-mail or text messages, and then learning to tolerate the after anxiety. Even if this leads to a high level of worry and stress, the solution is to push through the fear and learn to deal with not having your phone. Of course, there are also technological alternatives. Luis Levy, a co-founder at Novy PR, says he uses an application called Cerberus that can automatically track the location of his phone. To find it, he can just go to a website and see the phone?s location. He also insures his phone through a service called Asurion. The company?s description of its product reads like a prescription for anxiety:“60 million phones are lost, stolen or damaged each year. You?ll have complete peace of mind knowing that your phone is protected and you can quickly reconnect with family, friends and work, as soon as the very next day!” 67. Why does the author mention Kelly?s experience in the first paragraph? A. To introduce the topic for discussion. B. To inform us that mobile phones are useful. C. To warn us that we should be careful. D. To tell us we should get phones ready for a trip. 68. The underlined word “nomophobia” in Paragraph 2 means “ ”. A. habits of using mobile phones B. fear of losing mobile phones C. eagerness for new mobile phones D. independence of mobile phones 69. Which of the following is a way to treat nomophobia? A. Avoiding using a phone for some time B. Learning more about modern technology C. Protecting one?s phone against any damage D. Not using a mobile phone in one?s daily work 70. What is the passage mainly about? A. Attitude toward mobile phones B. New mobile phone technology C. Disadvantages of mobile phones D. Solutions to nomophobia 第二节(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分)

根据短文内容, 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。 选项中有两项为多余选项。 Why Exercise Is Cool? 1. Exercise Strengthens Muscles Did you ever do a push-up or swing across the monkey bars at the playground? 71 By using your muscles to do powerful things, you can make them stronger. For older teens and adults, this kind of workout can make muscles bigger, too. 2. 72 Can you touch your toes easily without yelling ouch? Most kids are pretty flexible, which means that they can bend and stretch their bodies without much trouble. Being flexible is having “full range of motion,” which means you can move your arms and legs freely without feeling tightness or pain. 3. Exercise Keeps the Balance 73 Your body needs a certain amount of calories every day just to function, breathe, walk around, and do all the basic stuff. 74 If you?re not very active, your body won?t need as many calories. Whatever your calorie need is, if you eat enough to meet that need, your body weight will stay about the same. If you eat more calories than your body needs, it may be stored as extra fat. 4. Exercise Makes You Feel Good It feels good to have a strong, flexible body that can do all the activities you enjoy—like running, jumping, and playing with your friends. It?s also fun to be good at something, like scoring a basket, hitting a home run, or perfecting a dive. But you may not know that exercising can actually put you in a better mood. 75 It?s just another reason why exercise is cool! A. So you want to do some aerobic (有氧的) exercise right now? B. Food gives your body fuel in the form of calories, which are a kind of energy. C. When you exercise, your brain releases a chemical, which may make you feel happier. D. Those are exercises that can build strength. E. Exercise Makes You Flexible F. Exercise Makes Your Heart Happy G. But if you?re active, your body needs an extra measure of calories or energy.

Many students took an active part in the activity. However, some students who are poor at handwriting don't want to improve their handwriting. The reasons are as follows: On one hand, they think that there is no need to waste time improving their handwriting because they can just use a computer. On the other hand, they believe that they are too busy with their studies to find time to practice. Besides, practicing handwriting is so difficult that they can't make great progress in a short time. In my view, students' beautiful and neat handwriting is beneficial to themselves. What's more, good handwriting is always appreciated by people, especially by teachers. Therefore, we should attach importance to handwriting. 听力原文: Text 1 W: The piano sounds terrible. M: I wish I could ask for my money back. This concert is really bad. Text 2 M: Hi, Mary. Where are you heading? W: Oh, hi, Chris. I?m off to the hairdresser?s. I think I need a new hairstyle. M: Well, have a good time! Why don?t you come over to my house afterwards for a coffee? Text 3 M: Sorry, I?m late. You know... the traffic was so heavy. W: Well, do you think I will believe the same old excuse? No way! M: Oh, dear, forgive me, please. I will be punctual next time. Text 4

M: This is the last time! You are always late. I?m through with this. W: Sorry, dear. I?m just a little late. Relax. M: We were supposed to meet at 7:00. What time is it now? W: 7:45? 8:00? M: Wrong. It?s a quarter past eight. Text 5 W: Why do you always refuse to go anywhere with us? M: Well, haven?t you considered the fact that everything costs a lot of money? Text 6 W: You know, I?m a little concerned about Jenny?s poor grades on her history tests. M: Well, I am too. It?s strange that on all her assignments she seems to be doing fine, but when it comes to writing the test, she freezes or something. W: Maybe we need to help her study better, like quiz her before each exam. She seems to like the class all right. M: And maybe we should talk to the teacher to see if she?s noticed anything strange about Jenny?s grades. Text 7 M: I need to study really hard these next two weeks. Otherwise, I might fail the biology test! W: I guess you don?t want to see the football match next weekend then? M: What? It?s next weekend? The radio announcement said it was on the 28th at 5:00 p.m. W: The schedule was changed due to a conflict with the television network—it?s going to take place a week earlier at the same time. M: My grade in biology is more important than one little football game, but I have been waiting for this match all year. W: Maybe you should stay home all next week studying. I?ll help you. Then we can go to the game on Saturday together. M: Great! W: But you have to buy my dinner, OK? M: Fine. Text 8 M: What are you reading? W: An article about Amazon Tree Houses.

M: Where did you get that feeling? W: Well, I? m a forward thinker. That?s all. M: Okay. I bet you?re going to throw that idea away within one week. W: I won?t. M: Sooner or later, you will realize that it is impossible.

W: Why? M: You don?t even have enough money to buy yourself a small apartment, let alone tree houses. W: I?m going to work harder. M: Sweetie, it?s good to have a dream, but not so good to have an unrealistic one. Text 9 W: Do you have the time, Alfred? M: It?s 7:20. W: We are early. The film starts at 7:30. Let?s have something to drink. M: That?s a good idea. W: Something smells good. M: Right, that?s popcorn. Would you like some popcorn? W: Yes, I?d love some. Do you know who invented popcorn? M: I heard that popcorn was first eaten by the Indians of North America. W: When did they start eating it? M: Thousands of years ago. W: I see. M: Did you know that the Indians not only ate popcorn, but they also used popcorn to make headdresses and necklaces, and in religious ceremonies? W: Yes, I have seen that in films. And a deerskin bag full of popcorn was served at the first Thanksgiving dinner at Plymouth Rock in 1621. M: You know, popcorn grew more popular during the Great Depression in the 1930s. But it became really popular when movie theaters across the continent started serving the snack. By 1947, 85 percent of movie houses were selling popcorn. W: Wow, you are kind of an expert on popcorn! Oh, the movie?s about to start. Let?s go. Text 10 When does one penny equal 170 million pennies? In Time for Kids, Kristi Martin reported that a 1943 U.S. penny that was made in Denver has sold for $1.7 million. That single coin is thought to be the only copper coin made in Denver that year. Only a handful of copper pennies were made at the other money-making facilities that same year. Pennies were made of steel in 1943 because copper was in short supply for use in equipment to help fight World War II. That was the only year that Lincoln pennies were not made of copper. A wealthy coin collector was eager to pay the huge sum for the coin because it was one of a kind. And that collector already had a 1943 copper penny from each of the other two facilities in Philadelphia and San Francisco. You might be surprised to learn what some of your own coins are worth. The more rare any collectible item is, the higher the value tends to be. It?s not likely, but it is possible that you might have a small fortune sitting in your pocket right now!
