In March 1987, I started a new magazine called Creating Excellence. It was a very proud moment for me. I’d worked hard for over a year to create it, and the premiere issue (首次发刊) was a real success. Shortly after we had mailed 25,000 copies, I received one in the mail. But this one wasn’t as beautiful as the ones we’d sent out. It was marked in red ink correcting the grammatical errors (语法错误) in it. A talented editor had read it carefully and found more errors than I could have imagined. I felt abashed. A magazine called Creating Excellence should be perfect in its content (内 容). The stories were good, but the errors this woman had found showed that our magazine was far from being excellent. At fir st, I was not satisfied with my editor for not having avoided the mistakes, and dissatisfied with the woman who seemed to have taken pleasure in pointing them out. Later, I was dissatisfied with myself for not having employed a better editor. Then I realized that I had to face up to my mistake. I called the talented editor. I thanked her for taking the time to read our magazine so carefully. Painful as it was, I accepted responsibility for it. Then I offered her the job of editing our magazine. The result was a great improvement in it; we could now be very proud of our magazine. From this I learnt that an upsetting moment can be an opportunity to see the truth, and it can help to prevent one making the same mistakes, and to make "excellence" a reality. 25. From the first paragraph we learn that _____. A. the author put little effort into her first magazine B. the author’s job was selling magazines C. the author was very satisfied with her work D. the author experienced a total failure 26. What does the underlined word "abashed" in the third paragraph mean? A. Excited. B. Embarrassed. C. Interested. D. Exhausted.
27. What do we learn about the woman who found the errors in the magazine? A. She was causing trouble on purpose. B. She liked pointing out the errors of others. C. She contributed a lot to the success of the premiere issue. D. She ended up joining the magazine team. 28. What do we learn from this passage? A. Pride is the biggest enemy of success. B. Success is behind many failures. C. Pointing out others’mistakes can help you find a job. D. Accepting responsibility for one’s errors can lead to real excellence. C It was on her 14th birthday that her first book, In the Forest of the Night, was accepted for publication. It was a huge success gaining the attention of millions of young readers. At 16, her second novel, Demon in My View, also reached the bookstores. Several books later , the teenage author still works away in her room, surrounded by shelves full of dark tales about vampires(吸 血鬼)and witches. Amelia Atwater – Rhodes is widely seen as America’s finest teen writer and was named one of Teen People’s “20 Teens Who Will Change the World.” Born in 1984, she began making up stories when she was about three years old. “I never stopped and said, ‘I want to write’,” Amelia remembers. “I loved stories and created stories before I was old enough to know how to write them down.” In her family, reading was basic and fun. “My parents encouraged me to read---- and to read anything I wanted, so long as I was reading,” she said. “They never restricted what I read. Later, when I started writing, they never criticized what I did or said I was ‘too young’. They never said it was impossible for me to achieve what I have.” In her short but successful career, Amelia has tried different styles. But vampires were the first characters to really come alive in her work. From them she has developed a whole world, one which she always enjoys learning more about. As a published teen writer, Amelia’s advice to other teens who dream of being authors is: just do it! “I believe anything is possible. Don’t give up your dreams just because you fear failure. Getting a book published is difficult, but if I can do it, others can too. ”
29. What can we learn about Amelia Atwater – Rhodes? A. Reading widely helped her a lot in her career . B. She found getting a book published was easy. C.

A Top-selling Teen Writer Pens Vampire Tales D Since th e 1970s, scientists have been searching for ways to link the brain with computers. Brain-computer interface (BCI) technology could help people with disabilities send commands to machines. Recently, two researchers, Jose Millan and Michele Tavella from the Federal Polytechnic School in Lausanne, Switzerland, demonstrated a small robotic wheelchair directed by a person's thoughts. In the laboratory, Tavella operated the wheelchair just by thinking about moving his left or right hand. He could even talk as he watched the vehicle and guided it with his thoughts. “Our brain has billions of nerve cells. These send signals through the spinal cord (脊髓) to the muscles to give us the ability to move. But spinal cord injuries or other conditions can prevent these weak electrical signals from reaching the muscles.” Tavella says. “Our system allows disabled people to communicate with external world and also to control devices. The researchers designed a special cap for the user. This head cover picks up the signals from the scalp (头皮) and sends them to a computer. The computer interprets the signals and commands
the motorized wheelchair. The wheelchair also has two cameras that identify objects in its path. They help the computer react to commands from the brain. Prof. Millan, the team leader, says scientists keep improving the computer software that interprets brain signals and turns them into simple commands. “The practical possibilities that BCI technology offers to disabled people can be grouped in two categories: communication, and controlling devices. One example is this wheelchair.” He says his team has set two goals. One is testing with real patients, so as to prove that this is a technology they can benefit from. And the other is to guarantee that they can use the technology over long periods of time. 33. BCI is a technology that can ________. A.help the disabled to recover C. help to update computer systems B. control a person's thoughts D. link the human brain with computers
34. How did Tavella operate the wheelchair in the laboratory? A. By talking to the machine. C. By using his mind. B. By controlling his muscles. D. By moving his hand.
35. Which of the following would be the best title for the text? A. B. C. D. Robotic Veh icles Could Help to Cure Brain Injuries BCI Could Mean More Freedom for the Disabled New Findings About How the Human Brain Works Switzerland, the BCI Research Center
第二节 任务型阅读 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） Although many Chinese students say their knowledge of English grammar is good, most would admit that their spoken English is poor. 36________ However, their spoken English does not have to remain poor. I would suggest that there may be some reasons for their problems with spoken English. First, 37________. Obviously the better answer is to expand their vocabulary. However, you can speak with a limited vocabulary if your attitude is positive. Others will follow you as long as you use the words that you know. Second, 38________ .Sometimes they make mistakes when they are speaking because they are shy and nervous. Yet students should remember that their goal should be FLUENCY NOT ACCURACY. You want to get your message across, to talk to someone in English, as quickly and as well as you
can, even though sometimes you may use a wrong word or tense, but it doesn't matter because the person you are speaking to will understand you and make allowance for any mistakes he hears. The third, 39________ .You have one mouth but two ears! All that hearing is necessary for you to start speaking. Fourth, 40________ .Instead of actively seeking out opportunities to improve their spoken English, they passively wait for speaking opportunities to come to them and wonder why their spoken English always remains poor. If you have this proactive outlook, then you will see English opportunities wherever you go. A．not enough attention is paid to listening. B. they fail to find suitable words to express themselves because of limited vocabulary.
C．most Chinese students are not active language learners. D．They are so stupid that they cannot finish their necessary homework in time.
