Some prepare students for workers, others prepare them for college. All schools are great places for making friends and learning German. Short days Most high schools in Germany begin at about 8:00 a.m. and end at about 3:30 p.m. This means your morning will be busy with classes. You will have time to do homework and take part in private(私人的) clubs after school. Formal setting In Germany, teachers and students’ relationship is more formal than you might be used to. Teachers are respected and students must use the formal “Sie（德语：您）” when talking to teachers.
Getting to school Most students take public transport to school or ride a bicycle. Some areas have school buses. It is not common for parents to drive students to school. Private clubs In many countries, schools offer official sports and after-school activities. This is less common in Germany. After-school activities are usually organized through private clubs. There are clubs for things like soccer, dance, choir, theatre and almost everything else. Once you a re in Germany, ask around at school and talk to other students to find out what private clubs are in your area and meet your interests. Different states, different schools Each of Germany’s 16 states has its own slightly different school systems. The school system in Brandenburg will be a little different from the system in Bavaria for example. Where you live, your knowledge level and your age will decide what school you can attend. 21. For high school students in Germany, which is NOT the common transport to school? A. School buses. B. Parents’ cars. C. Public transport. D. Students’ bicycles. 22. From the passage, we can learn that in Germany _______. A. all kinds of high schools are for college B. age is not important for attending schools[来源: C. students can take part in after-school activities from 8:00 a. m .to 3:30 p.m. D. students can join private clubs to meet their interests by themselves 23. What can be the best title for this article? A. German Private Clubs B. German Public Transport C. German High Schools D. German College Systems B On “Super Bowl Sunday”, millions of Americans are glued to their TVs. They are eating pizza, chicken wings and chips and cheering every move. They’re watching the Super Bowl. Why are Americans so crazy about American football? Well, it is more exciting than other sports. One team can lose possession of the ball in a minute, which may allow their opponents to make a touchdown(触地得分). Then that team may win the game unexpectedly. The Super Bowl also entertains its audience with a great halftime show. The football field is turned into a stage. Then an impressive performance of dancing and singing with special effects occurs. Since the Super Bowl is the most-watch ed TV program in America, commercial airtime is also very expensive. Big money is also spent on commercials. They draw the viewers’ attention and advertise their image or products during the commercial break. After football season, the “March Madness” begins. The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) competitions begin with 68 men’s college basketball teams. They play until the field is reduced to the “Final Four”. The winning team becomes the national champion. The NBA (National Basketball Association) All-Star game is also held in February. The best players from all the teams play in this game. Baseball is no doubt American’s national sport. From grandpas to young kids, whole families go to ball games together. They wear their favorite team’s caps or even carry their mascot(吉祥物). Our family went to watch Wang Chien-Ming play in D.C. once. We ate hot dogs, waved flags and sang during the 7th inning(棒球的一局) stretch.
If you are not a sports fan yet, come and pick a sport or a team. Go to a ball game with your family, and cheer your team on. Sports are definitely a part of American culture one should not miss. 24. According to the passage, the Super Bowl is _____. A. a well-received American football game B. an expensive American sport C. an impressive TV performance D. a most-watched TV series 25. Which of the following may be one of the reasons for the popularity of the Super Bowl? A. Its results are too exciting to meet viewers’ expectations. B. People can eat pizza, chicken wings and chips when watching it. C. Its commercials are expensive enough to draw viewers’ attention. D. The performances during its halftime show are appealing to viewers. 26. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Americans spend a large amount of money on ball games. B. American people of all ages like going to watch baseball games.[来源:学科网] C. All the American stars take part in the national basketball game. D. There are important national ball games in America almost every month. 27. The passage is mainly written to _____. A. inform readers of the three popular sports in America B. teac h readers how to understand the sports culture in America C. encourage readers to fit in with American culture through sports D. show readers the importance of sports in young people’s life in America C I recently got pulled over for speeding not far from my new home in Virginia. I hadn’t been paying attention, and I had driven a few miles an hour over the speed limit. “Can I see your license and registration?” the police officer asked me. I pulled both out for him, and he saw my Pittsburgh address on my Pennsylvania driver’s license. “What are you doing here?” he asked. “Are you with the army?” “No, I’m not.” I answered. I explained that I had just moved to Virginia, and I hadn’t had time to re-register yet. “So what brings you here?” He had asked a direct question. Without thinking very hard, I gave him a direct answer. “Well, officer,” I said, “since you’ve asked, I have cancer. I have just months to live. We’ve moved down here to be close to my wife’s family.” “So you’ve got cancer,” he said flatly. He was trying to figure me out. Was I really dying? Was I lying? He took a long look at me. “You know, for a guy who has only a few months to live, you sure look good.” He was obviously thinking: “Either this guy is pulling one big fat line on me, or he’s telling the truth.” He was trying to question my honesty without directly calling me a liar. And so he had forced me to prove that I was being honest. “Well, officer, I know that I look pretty healthy. I look great on t he outside, but the tumors （肿瘤） are on the inside.” And then, I don’t know what possessed me, but I just did it. I pulled up my shirt, showing the operational scars. He looked at my scars. He looked in my eyes. He now knew he was talking to a dying man. Well, he
wasn’t taking this any further. He handed me back my license. “Do me a favor.” he said, “Slow down from now on.” The awful truth had set me free. As he went back to his police car, I had a realization. I had been one of thos e gorgeous blondes (金发美女) who could bat her eyelashes and get out of tickets. I drove home under the speed limit, and I was smiling like a beauty queen. 28. The author was stopped by the police officer because ______. A. he didn’t have a license B. he forgot to re-register C. he was seriously ill D. he drove too fast 29. The author moved to Virginia probably because ______. A. he was homesick B. he served in the army there C. Virginia had better hospitals D. he could spend more time with families 30. On hearing about the author’s cancer, the police officer ______. A. said it was an excuse B. doubted his honesty C. showed sympathy for him D. asked him to show his scars 31. It can be inferred from the passage that the author was ______. A. optimistic B. adventurous C. dishonest D. romantic D For the most part, it seems, workers in rich countries have little to fear from globalization, and a lot to gain. But is the same thing true for workers in poor countries? The answer is that they are even more likely than their rich-country counterparts (地位相当的人) to benefit, because they have less to lose and more to gain. Traditional economics takes an optimistic line on integration (整合) and the developing countries. Openness to foreign trade and investment should encourage capital to flow to poor economies. In the developing world, capital is scarce, so the returns on investment there should be higher than in the industrialized countries, where the bes t opportunities to make money by adding capital to labour have already been used up. If poor countries lower their barriers to trade and investment, the theory goes, rich foreigners will want to send over some of their capital. If this inflow of resources arrives in the form of loans or portfolio investment (组合投资), it will top up domestic savings and loosen the financial restriction on additional investment by local companies. If it arrives in the form of new foreign-controlled operations, FDI, so much the better: this kind of capital brings technology and skills from abroad packaged along with it, with less financial risk as well. In either case, the addition to investment ought to push incomes up, partly by raising the demand for labour and partly by making labour more productive. This is why workers in FDI-receiving countries should be in an even better position to profit from integration than workers in FDI-sending countries. Also, with or without inflows of foreign capital, the same gains from trade should apply in developing countries as in rich ones. This gains from trade logic often arouses suspicion, because the benefits seem to come from nowhere. Surely one side or the other must lose. Not so. The benefits that a rich country gets through trade do not come at the expense of its poor country trading partners, or vice versa. Recall that according to the theory, trade is a positive sum game. In all these trades, both sides—exporters and importers, borrowers and lenders, shareholders and workers can gain.
32. Why are workers in poor countries more likely to benefit from the process of globalization? A. They can get more chances to gain a good job. B. They can get more financial aid. C. They have nothing to lose. D. They have less to lose and more to gain. 33. What can be the final result of the inflow of the resource? A. It will top up domestic savings. B. It will loosen the financial restriction. C. It will push people’s incomes up. D. It will bring technology and skills from abroad. 34. What can we know from the last paragraph? A. Poor countries get the most profit during the process of trade. B. Rich countries get profit from trade at poor countries’ expense. C. Poor countries get more profit from trade than rich ones. D. All aspects involved in the trade can get benefit. 35. Which can be the most appropriate title for this passage? A. Benefited or Hurt B. Who Benefits the Most C. Helping the Poor D. The Inflow of Resources 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，共 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Schools are never perfect and not all teachers are perfect, either.

Every summer, thousands of families leave the cities behind to spend weekends or vacations outdoors. Some families take along trailers. Others load their cars with tents, small stoves and air-filled mattresses. Then they drive to one of the country’s campgrounds. Most campgrounds in the United States are publicly owned. The national parks and many national monuments and national forests have land for campers. State governments also run campgrounds in state-owned parks and forests. A few years ago, campers could always find room to camp in a public campground. But today, state-owned campgrounds are often over crowded. To meet the needs of the ever-growing number of campers, some businessmen are opening private campgrounds to campers. The campers usually pay more money than they pay at state-owned grounds. But many private parks offer more services and they give people more chance to enjoy camping. 听力 1-5BCCAC 6-10BCBCA 11-15CBBAB 16-20CABAC 阅读 21-23BDC，24-27A DBC，28-31DDBA 32-35DCDB 36-40 DFGEA 完型 41-45ADBAC 46-50ACDCC51-55BCDAB 56-60BCACB 语法填空 a, counties, taking, as, supported, At, their, that/ which, strongly, holds 改错 It’s time to went home now .

High school students are faced with a choice between arts and science. It was not an easy choice for me to make. After careful consideration, though, I decided on science as my main subject of study. The reasons are as follows: First, science graduates are in greater demand than arts ones in China. Second, the science major can help me achieve my childhood dream of becoming a scientist. Third, my parents wish me to study science at college because they believe I will have a brighter future as a science student. Last but not least, my physics teacher is my role model, whose influence on me had a lot to do with my decision. It is for these reasons that I finally made my choice. Thanks!
