B It is natural for young people to be critical of their parents at times and to blame them for most of the misunderstandings between them. They have always complained, more or less justly, that their parents are out of touch with modern ways, that they do not trust their children to deal with crisis, that they talk too much about certain problems, and that they have no sense of humor, at least in parent-child relationships. I think it is true that parents often underestimate their teenage children and also forget how they themselves felt when young. Young people often irritate(激怒) their parents with their choices in clothes and hairstyles, in the entertainment and music. This is not their motives. They feel cut off from the adult world into which they have not yet been accepted. So they create
a culture and society of their parents. This gives them additional enjoyment. They feel they are superior, at least in a small way, and that they are leaders in style and taste. Sometimes they are resistant and proud because they do not want their parents to approve of what they do. If they do approve, it looks as if they are betraying their own age group. But in that case, they are assuming that they are underdogs: they can’t win, but at least they can keep their honor. This is a passive way of looking at things. It is natural enough after long years of childhood, when they were completely under their parents’ control. But it ignores the fact that they are now beginning to be responsible for themselves. Next from my teaching experience for ages, I want to give you young people the following advice that perhaps can help deal with the generation gap properly. If you plan to control your life, co-operation can be part of that plan. Y ou can charm others, especiall y your parents, into doing things the way you want. You can impress others with your sense of responsibility and tasks, so that they will give you the authority to do what you want to do. 24. The text is meant to _______________. A. Criticize the parents who approve their children much B. seek a proper way to resolve the generation gap C. Support the children who are resistant to their parents D. offer proper co-operation to young people and parents 25. Which of the following is young people’s complaint? A. Parents should be responsible for all the misunderstandings between parents and children. B. Parents always know much and all the time keep pace with the times. C. Patents believe their children have the ability to solve any problems. D. Parents are lacking in humor and like talking a lot. 26. What can we learn from Paragraph 3? A. Young people always annoy their parents in order to enjoy their entertainment and music.
B. Young people are fairly well satisfied with keeping away from the adult society. C. Young people feel quite happy for their annoying actions to meet their sense of superiority. D. Young people make full use of their music and entertainment to enrich their life. 27. What does the underlined word “underdogs” in the fourth paragraph mean? A. lovely dogs B. failures C. partners D. lookers
C A credit card that won’t work unless its owner’s voice is heard may become an important weapon in the fight against economic fraud(欺诈). The card using a built-in voic e-recognition chip requires users to give a spoken password that it recognizes. The idea is to prevent thieves from using a stolen card to buy goods online. A model built by engineers in California packs a microphone, a loudspeaker, a battery and a voice-recognition chip into a standard-sized credit card. The card is the length and width of an ordinary credit card but about three times as thick. The company now plans to make it thinner. The voice card is based on an earlier Beep card technology designed to prevent fraud in online deals. The Beep card has no microphone, but has a built-in loudspeaker to utter an audible(听得见的) ID signal by a computer’s microphone to an online server(服务器). By confirming that signal matches the information in the card, the server can make sure that the user is not simply keying in a credit card number but actually has the card in his hand. The ID code, which only the server knows, changes each time the card is used. This prevents fraudsters recording the beeps, noting the card details and then playing back the audible ID when they key in the details later. But this earlier Beep card technology cannot prevent illegal use of stolen cards. The new voice card can. The new voice card doesn’t identify itself by its ID until it has confirmed the real user’s spoken password. Thieves will be unable to use the card because even if they
knew the password they would have to be able to copy the owner’s voice with a high degree of accuracy. The challenge for Beep card has been to develop voice-recognition and audio cercuitry(声音电路). The voice-recognition credit is powered by a mini battery. To extend batter life, the electronics have only to be switched on when the card is being used. Pressing a button on the card’s surface allows one to hear a female voice saying, “say your password.” If the voice-recognition software proves that the password is real, it sends its ID, which the server then identifies, allowing the deal to continue. 28. The voice credit has become important because_____________. A. it make it easy to shop online B. it makes economic fraud more difficult C. it is cheap to make and buy D. it has the function of leaving voice message 29. What is the difference between the ordinary credit card and model card? A. The latter has no loudspeaker. B. The latter can’t be used online. C. The latter is thicker than the former one. D. The latter is larger than the former one. 30. We know from the passage that______________. A. the user of the ealier Beep card doesn’t need to key in the credit card number B. the ID code number of the voice card is not all the same C. the earlier beep card has a microphone and a built-in loudspeaker in it D. thieves can use the voice card once it is stolen 31. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that_____________. A. male customers won’t like using the voice card B. we can use the voice card at will C. there need further improvements to extend battery life D. female voice is the only voice heard
The day I became a mom was not the day my dgughter was born, but seven years later. Up until that day, I had been too busy trying to survive my abusive marriage. I had spent all my energy trying to run a “perfect” home that would pass inspection each evening. I’d tried endlessly to please someone who could never be pleased and suddenly realized that the years had slipped by and could never be recaptured. Oh, I had done the normal “motherly” things, like making sure my daughter got to ballet and tap and gym lessons. Iwent to all of her recitals and school concerts, parent-teacher conferences and open houses — alone. I ran interference during my husband’s rages when something was spilled at the dinner table, telling her, “It will be okay, honey. Daddy’s not really mad at you.” I did all I could to protect her from hearing the awful shouting after he returned from a night of drinking. Finally I did the best thing I could do for my daughter and myself: I removed us from the home that wasn’t really a home at all. That day I became a mom was the day my daughter and I were sitting in our new home having a calm, quiet dinner just as I had always wanted for her. We were talking about what she had done in school and suddenly her little hand knocked over the full glass of chocolate milk by her plate. As I watched the white tablecloth and freshly painted white wall become dark brown, I looked at her small face. It was filled with fear, knowing what the outcome of the event would have meant only a week before in her father’s presence. When I saw that look on her face and looked at the chocolate milk running down the wall, I simply started laughing. I am sure she thought I was crazy, but then she must have realized that I was thinking, “It’s a good thing that your father isn’t here!” She started laughing with me, and we laughed until we cried. The y were tears of joy and peace and were the first of many tears that we cried together. That was the day we knew that we were going to be okay. That was the day I really became a mom. I discovered that being a mom isn’t only going to ballet, and tap and gym recitals, and attending every school concert and open house. It isn’t keeping a spotless house and preparing perfect meals. It certainly isn’t pretending things are normal when they are not. For me, being a mom started when I could laugh over spilled milk.

A. the writer thought she became a real mo m B. the writer occupied herself in caring for her daughter C. the writer tried to run a perfect home and she made it D. the writer’s focus was always on keeping a “perfect” home 33.

Doing the normal motherly things. D. Showing no anger to her daughter at any time. 35. It can be inferred from the passage that _________. A. the writer thought she could finally protect her daughter and enjoy happiness B. the writer got angry when her daughter knocked over the glass C. the writer once felt happy by petending things were normal D. the writer once had a harmonious family life

Like every knows, a good learning environment is of greatly importance if we want to study English well. Classes teaching in English provide students for a better environment. When English is an only language in class, students will have more opportunities to practice listening and speaking. However, there were problems with this method. Sometimes we may find difficult to follow the teacher and some slow learners may even give up learn English. In spite of these difficulties, but I believe practice makes perfect. With enough practice, we student can overcome the difficulties and benefit from English classes in the long run.
