Then from across the street someone came walking. It looked like a man of middle height, dressed in a big raincoat, a soft hat and rubber-soled boots or shoes, and making little sound while walking. No one was in sight. It was a street with two rows of about fifty small houses and there were three lamps on either side. The lamp nearest to the child’s house could be seen clearly, but the others were almost hidden by the smoky air. A car passed the end of the street and its lights showed faintly，but clearly enough to show the smooth skin of a woman’s face. The car disappeared as the woman, wrapped up in her coat, reached the doorway of the child’s house. She put a key in the lock quickly, pushed the door open and stepped inside, then closed the door without looking round. She began to breathe hard. She leaned against the door for a moment, then straightened up as if with an effort, and walked towards the door of the front room, the passage leading to the kitchen, and the narrow staircase. She hesitated outside the door, then went up the stairs quickly but with hardly a sound. There was enough light from the narrow hall to show the four doors leading off a small landing(楼梯平台). She pushed each door open in turn and shone a torch inside, and the light fell upon beds, walls, furniture, a bathroom hand-basin, a mirror which flashed brightness back; but this was not what the woman was looking for. She turned away and went downstairs, and hesitated again at the foot of the stairs, then turned towards the kitchen. Clearly there was nothing there, or in the small washroom that she wanted. Two rooms remained; the front room
and a smaller one next to it. She opened the front room door. After a moment, she saw the child’s bed and the child. 21. The lights of the car passing the end of the street showed that ______. A. a woman was driving the car B. someone was standing by a street lamp. C. a man and a woman were walking up the street. D. a woman was walking by herself up the street. 22. After the woman closed the front door, she ___________. A. looked round quickly B. started breathing again C. rested before moving D. walked straight towards the front door 23. When she was upstairs, the woman _______. A. saw that there was a wash-basin in each room B. noticed a mirror which she was looking for C. found a torch in one of the rooms D. opened four different doors 24. Once she was in the house, the woman behaved as if what she was looking for _______. A. might be in the kitchen B. was more likely to be upstairs C. would be easily seen by the light from the hall D. would look frightening to a child B Hi, everybody !

D Listening, really listening, can improve communication and build respect with others. Communication begins by listening and then suggesting that you hear what the person is saying. This can be recognized by focus or eye contact, body language, and reflective listening. Focus (Eye Contact)—Focus means that you are looking directly at the person speaking and not looking off to one side or continuing to do something else. You are focused on what is being said; the speaker is the center of attention. Listening attentively is essential for positive communication. Listening Without Interrupting—Does your body acknowledge( 承 认 ) that you are listening? Use smiles, nods, and expressions of understanding to communicate to the speaker that you are listening. It is not necessary that you agree or disagree at this time. It is more important for the person speaking to know that his or her words are respected. This strengthens communication. Reflective Listening—Reflective listening involves hearing the feelings and meanings of the speaker. It is a re-statement (in different words) of what the speaker said. You, in essence, mirror the words of the speaker and rephrase them back to the speaker, checking for accuracy( 准 确 )of understanding. This process affirms the speaker, indicates a respect of the person, and shows that you understand the speaker’s message. Through careful reflection of the speaker’s words, you can make clear the message and build mutual( 相 互 的 ) understanding. Through reflective listening and the careful exchange of words, we learn that other people have important feelings and opinions which we need to consider. Learning to understand the importance of all ideas, not just our own, can lead to successful resolution of problems and mutual respect. 33. The best way to build respect with others is _____. A. to look directly at the person speaking B. to listen to the speaker attentively C. to interrupt the speaker when necessary D. to use expressions of understanding 34. What strengthens communication with the person speaking? A. Making him or her know that his or her words are respected. B. Expressing agreement or disagreement in time when listening. C. Repeating his or her words from time to time. D. Listening instead of saying anything. 35. Reflective Listening is aimed to _____. A. show you are not absent in mind B. make sure the speaker’s words are correct C. checking for accuracy of understanding D. express your own ideas without delay 第二节：七选五（共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中 选出能填入空白处的最佳选项，选项中有两项为多余选项。 Getting your children to study can be a little like getting them to eat their vegetables.
