But business didn’t go smoothly as they expected.DeLuca says，“After six months，we were doing poorly，but we didn’t know how badly，because we didn’t have any financial controls.” All he and Buck knew was that their sales were lower than their costs. DeLuca was managing the store and going to the University of Bridgeport at the same time.Buck was working at his day job as a nuclear physicist in New York.They’d meet Monday evenings and brainstorm ideas for keeping the business running.“We convinced ourselves to open a second store.We figured we could tell the public，‘We are so successful，we are opening a second store.’” And they did—in the spring of 1966.Still，it was a lot of learning by trial and error. But the partners’ learn- you- approach turned out to be their greatest strength.Every as- go Friday，DeLuca would drive around and handdeliver the checks to pay their suppliers.“It probably took me two and a half hours and it wasn’t necessary，but as a result，the suppliers got to know me very well，and the personal relationships established really helped out，” DeLuca says. And having a goal was also important.“There are so many problems that can get you down.You just have to keep working toward your goal，” DeLuca adds. DeLuca ended up founding Subway Sandwich，the multimilliondollar restaurant chain. 1．DeLuca opened the first sandwich shop in order to ________. A．support his family B．pay for his college education C．help his partner expand business D．do some research 答案 B 解析 根据第一段“I’m going to college，but I need a way to pay for it.”可知 DeLuca 开 B．in D．over

C．He was studying at the University of Bridgeport.

A．It stood at an unfavorable place. B．It lowered the prices to promote sales. C．It made no profits due to poor management.

D．Opening chain stores. 答案 A 解析 根据第四段最后一句和第五段第一句可知他们是摸着石头过河， 从失败中不断总结 经验教训的。 Ⅲ.微写作 写作素材 1．Stewart 认为，挑战自我永远为时不晚。 2．1936 年他获得医学博士学位。 3．80 多岁时他决定学习法律。 4．他于 2006 年获得硕士学位。
(素材来源于 2012· 广东· 基础写作) 提示：尽量使用高级表达：never too...to...等。 连句成篇 (将以上句子连成一篇 50 词左右的英语短文) Stewart thinks it is never too late to challenge oneself.In 1936 he got his doctor’s degree of medicine.He decided to study law in his eighties and got the master’s degree in 2006.
1．secure adj.安全的 v.使安全 security n．安全 secure...from/against 保护??免于?? a sense of security 安全感 2．contact n．联系；接触 v.联系 get/keep/stay in contact with 和??保持联系 lose contact with 和??失去联系 help of 在??帮助下 4．This idea came to Su Enlu and his girlfriend one day.类似句子： An idea occurred_to me. An idea hit_me. An idea struck_me. I hit_on/struck_on an idea. An idea came_to my mind. 5．All he and Buck knew was that their sales were lower than their costs. 该句虽不长，但结构较复杂。句子的主干是 All_was_that_their_sales_were_lower。主语中 包含一个省去连词 that 的定语从句 he_and_Buck_knew，that 引导表语从句，在该从句中 包含一个比较结构 lower than。 学会一种单词记忆法 3．构词记忆：利用构词法，通过分析词根、前缀、后缀、派生和合成等记忆单词。 4．分类记忆：把单词进行分类， 如：动物，植物等，进行分类记忆。你可以找一本分类字 典作为参考。 如何做说明文类型的完形填空 1．分清说明对象，对症下药 做说明文型完形填空时， 要注意它的说明对象是什么， 是具体的实物还是理论性的概念。 一般来说，在描述具体的实物时往往比较直观形象，我们很容易在头脑中产生所描述物 体的影像，所以对文章的理解就比较容易；而在描述理论性的概念时，往往比较抽象， 理解难度大。 2．把握说明顺序，顺藤摸瓜 说明文的说明顺序有如下几种：时间顺序、空间顺序、逻辑顺序、认识顺序等。 (1)时间顺序是指先后顺序。 (2)空间顺序是指从局部到整体、从上到下、从内到外的顺序。 (3)逻辑顺序是指先因后果或先果后因、先主后次的顺序。 make contact with 和??取得联系 in/out of contact 有/无联系 with the 3．help out 帮助 it cannot be helped 实在无办法 cannot help but do 不得不做??
(4)认识顺序是指由此及彼、由浅入深、由现象到本质、由具体到抽象的顺序。 做题时弄清了说明顺序，按顺序思考，就不会偏离主题而出现理解上的偏差。 3．代入空格，验证答案 完成了上两步后，别忘了还有“润色”。这里所说的“润色”是指：我们要回过头来， 依据文章的内容，将我们选择的答案代入空格，看一下我们所选的答案是否符合逻辑。 要注意的是， 有时我们的答案针对这一空是对的， 但很可能这一步应该是下一步要做的。 这样我们就要进行调整，直到文章上下通顺，步骤先后顺序清晰明了为止。如本节完形 填空中的第 12 空 Moreover， asked friends who study in France to be their contact person they and arrange some cheap __12__ during their stay abroad to save money as much as they can. 句意：而且，他们还要求在法国学习的朋友作他们的联系人，安排一些便宜的________ 以便为了尽可能地省钱。只有答案 B 正确，“他们还安排了便宜的食宿 (accommodations)”，而不仅仅是食物(food)，衣服(clothes)和旅行(trip)，food 和 clothes 都是 accommodations 所包括的内容，故 accommodations 更全面。
