To many property developers and local government officials, housing price in China is still low compared with many developed countries. However, the average housing price in the United States is only 8,000 yuan per square meter, while in China, it is even higher than in the United States. This shows that there are some bubbles(泡沫) in Chinese real estate (房地产) market, the International Finance News reported. Although the average price of residential houses in the United States, after converted to Renminbi, is about 8,000 yuan per square meter, the houses in US are not sold in terms of building area, as most Chinese property developers do when they sell their houses. If US property developers sell their houses according to the building area, then the housing price will be even lower than 8,000 yuan per square meter. In most big Chinese cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen, houses are sold at a price even higher than those in the US. The high housing sales price in large cities in China proves that Chinese real estate market
does have some bubbles. Moreover, Chinese houses can not be compared with houses in US in terms of building quality, environment and supporting facilities. Furthermore, it should be noted that American people‘s average income is several dozen times higher than that of Chinese people. How can the Chinese afford to buy a house which is even more expensive than that sold in US? At the beginning of 2007, Chinese government issued a set of policies that aimed to benefit the public. Now in order to reduce the high housing prices, the government can regulate (控制) the real estate market by raising tax on property industry and controlling the release of loans and lands to property developers. At the same time, the government should allow people to build more houses through various fund-raising channels, such as funds collected from buyers or raised by working units. By applying these multiple means, it is expected that the high housing prices can be lowered. 56．Which of the following does NOT support the idea that the average housing price in China is even higher than in the United States? A．Chinese houses can not be compared with houses in US in terms of building quality, environment and supporting facilities. B．American people‘s average income is several dozen times higher than that of Chinese people. C．The houses in US are not sold in terms of building area, as most Chinese property developers do when they sell their houses. D．There are more people who need houses in China than in the United States.
57．What is the main idea of this passage? A．The Chinese government should do something to control the housing price. B．There are some bubbles in Chinese real estate market. C．The average housing price in China is even higher than in the United States. D．The Chinese government issued a set of policies that aimed to benefit the public. 58．How many measures are mentioned in the last paragraph in order to reduce the high housing prices? A．Four B．Three C．Five D．Two B Just 7 km east of Sydney‘s city center lies Australia‘s most famous beach – Bondi, with its glorious strip of golden sand and blue water.

Nobody dares any longer to defend the old system, the parrot – fashion (way of learning by repeating what others say) of learning lessons, the grammar with a whip system， which was good enough for our grandparents．The theories of modern psychology have stepped into argue that we must understand the needs of children．Children are not just small adults；they are children who must be respected as such． Well， may say， is as it should be， a good idea． think further． you this and But What happens? ?Education‘ becomes the responsibility not of teachers, but of psychologists．What happens then? Teachers worry too much about the psychological implications of their lessons， forget about the and subjects themselves． a child dislikes a lesson， teacher feels that it is his fault， the child‘s. If the not So teachers worry whether history is ?relevant‘ to modem young children．And do they dare to recount stories about violent battles? Or will this make the children themselves violent? Can they tell their classes about children of different races，or will this encourage racial hatred? Why teach children to write grammatical sentences? Verbal expression is better．Sums? Arithmetic? No：real —life mathematical situations are more understandable． You see．you can go too far．Influenced by educational theorists，who have nothing better to do than write books about their ideas，teachers leave their teacher—training colleges filled with grand， psychological ideas about children and their needs. They make complicated preparations and try out their ?modern methods‘ on the long – suffering children. Since one ?modern method‘ rapidly replaces another, the poor kids will have well been fed up by the time they leave school. frequently the modern methods are so complicated that they fail to be understood by the teachers, let alone the children; even more often, the relaxed discipline so necessary for the ?informal‘ feeling the class must have, prevents all but a handful of children from learning anything. 63．Under the old system, children were . A．made to learn passively B．good enough to their grandparents C．made to learn actively D．understood and respected by teachers 64．What happens when teachers pay too much attention to the psychological implications during a lesson? A．They find that children dislike the lessons.
B．They worry too much about history, stories, racial hatred, grammar and arithmetic. C．They don‘t pay enough attention to what students are learning. D．They tend to blame students for their failure in teaching. 65．How do you understand the underlined sentence at the end of the passage? A．Children will learn well in a relaxed classroom atmosphere. B．Few children will actually learn when there is no discipline. C．Relaxed discipline is necessary for children to develop. D．No children will learn anything without strict discipline. 66．What is the author‘s attitude toward the theories of modern psychology? A．Indifferent (不关心的). B．Tolerant (容忍的). C．Supportive (支持的). D．Critical (批评的). D As I was reading a recent story in Slate on 20-somethings complaining about how the economy was ruining their life plans, I couldn‘t help but think the 20-somethings sounded like a bunch of spoiled children who grew up expecting everything to be easy for them. As a 20-something myself, I certainly share their disappointment: my husband and I probably won‘t be able to buy a house until we‘re in our 40s, and we too are burdened by student loans(贷款). But why should it be any different? Being young persons in America, shouldn‘t they take up all of the challenges and opportunities that this country offers? Consider some of these views shared in the Slate story: Jennifer, 29, owner of a two-bedroom apartment with her husband, worries that she won‘t be able to have children for at least a decade because they can‘t afford to buy a house yet. I read that, and I thought, what planet is she living on where you need to own a house in order to have kids? Has she ever visited a developing country, or even downtown areas in this one? Home ownership is a luxury(奢华), not a fertility requirement. A 26-year-old in the story despairs(绝望) that he can‘t afford to get a Ph.D. in literature. Well, that sounds a bit like expressing disappointment that no one will pay you to write poetry on the beach in Thailand for five years. Yes, it‘s sad that these young people feel so lost. But I think the problem is their extremely high expectations, not economic reality. Beth Kobliner, author of Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties, says that she thinks people‘s expectations are slowly adjusting, but today‘s 20-somethings grew up at a time when everyone‘s wealth appeared to be expanding. Their parents probably saw their home values rise along with their investments. ―So you have people who have grown up in an environment where people had great expectations of what living well means,‖ says Kobliner. This recession(衰退) will certainly play a role in forcing those expectations into more realistic group. In the meantime, it seems a lot better for our mental health to focus on being grateful－for our one-bedroom apartments, for living in modern cities, or perhaps just for being able to eat three meals a day－than on longing for some kind of luxury life. 67．What makes the author think the 20-somethings sound like a bunch of spoiled children?
A．They expect everything to be easy for them. B．They complain that the economy is spoiling their life plans. C．They are reluctant to face all of the challenges. D．They are burdened by student loans. 68．The underlined word ―fertility‖ in Paragraph 3 probably means . A．baby production B．pleasant C．baby comfort D．essential 69．Which of the following is not one of the complaints of the 20-somethings? A．They can‘t have children for at least a decade to buy a house. B．They have only one-bedroom apartment to live in. C．They can‘t buy a house until 40 because of student loans. D．They despair at not being able to afford a Ph.D. in literature. 70．What is the author‘s purpose of writing this passage? A．To tell us what the author‘s attitude towards the 20 – somethings. B．To explain why young people can‘t afford to buy a house. C．To suggest what we should do when young people‘s high hopes create despair. D．To explain what the 20 – something‘s high expectations are.

第一节 任务型阅读 阅读下列短文并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入最恰当 的单词，每空格 1 词（共 10 个小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） Stress is an uncomfortable feeling in the mind from any situation or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or anxious. Stress if often accompanied by physical symptoms, including twitching or trembling, muscle tension, headaches, sweating, dry mouth, difficulty swallowing, rapid or irregular heart rate, rapid breathing, fatigue, loss of temper, sleeping difficulties and nightmares, decreased concentration. Stress is a normal part of life. In small quantities, stress is good – it can motivate you and help you be more productive. However, too much stress, or a strong response to stress, is harmful. It can cause general poor health as well as specific physical or depression. Persistent and never-ceasing stress often leads to anxiety and unhealthy behaviors like overeating and abuse of alcohol or drugs. Certain drugs can lead to symptoms of stress due to side effects. Such drugs include caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, cocaine and diet pills. A poor diet – for example, low levels of vitamin B 12 – can also contribute to stress or anxiety. Performance stress is related to specific situations, like taking a test or making a presentation in public. Posttraumatic stress develops after an unforgettably shocking event like war, physical attacks, or a natural disaster. Any effective ways to cope with your stress or anxiety? One step is to make a list of what you think might be making you ?stress out‘: What do you worry about most? Is something constantly on
your mind? Does anything in particular make you sad or depressed? Then, find someone you believe in who will listen to you. Often, just talking to a friend or loved one is all that is needed to relieve anxiety. Most communities also have support groups and hotlines that can help. Social workers, psychologists, and other mental health professionals may be needed for therapy and medication (疗法和打坐). Also, find healthy ways to deal with stress. For example, eat a well – balanced, healthy diet, don‘t overeat, get enough sleep, exercise regularly, limit caffeine and alcohol. Don‘t use nicotine, cocaine, or other recreational drugs. Learn and practice relaxation techniques like yoga and tai chi. Take breaks from work. Make sure to balance fun activities with your responsibilities. Spend time with people you enjoy. Find self – help books at your local library or bookstore.
