On the first day of my second grade in primary school, my father asked if I could 36 well. "Yes," I said.

The look he gave me as he 39 me the map showed very little. He simply said, "40 you need to know is written on the map. Read it and 41 the directions. Don’t run, and don’t turn back."42 he kissed me goodbye. I don’t know how long it 43 me to get there, or how many 44 and anxious (焦虑的) moments I had. I do remember how I felt when I went around that last corner and saw my 45 . I had made it! I jumped up and down. But I felt 46 as I was not with my dad. I wasn’t able to share my happiness with him.

Did you have 49 ?"I murmured (低语), "Yes", and waited for him to ask what had happened. He 50 did. Years later I 51 got the courage to ask him why he hadn’t 52 about what had happened that day. He just looked at me for a moment and then said, "I didn’t have to 53 you. I followed you the whole way, but far enough 54 so you could not see me. I saw you jump up and down at the last street 55 .

第三部分:阅读理解 (共 20 小题; 每小题 2 分, 满分 40 分)
阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中,选出最佳选项。
难度★ The summer is not a good season for most people because of its hot weather. You’ve probably also got memories of asking your parents for money to buy one of those big chocolate ice creams, and being refused. Well, Matt Allen, known as the Ice Cream Man, is here to give both children and adults good memories of summer. For the last four years, Allen has spent his summers driving an old ice cream truck named "Bessie", handing out free ice creams to children and grown-ups. He’s traveled over 15,000 miles, and handed out more than 125,000 free ice creams. At first Allen wanted to earn money by selling ice creams, as most people would. But in his first season of selling, he made a lot of money, yet had so many ice creams
left that he wasn’t sure what to do with them. So he decided to give them away. That may seem like a strange thing, but the Ice Cream Man did it. "You go through your life thinking you can change the world or thinking you cannot," he says. "If those are the only two options, how can you not at least try?" "If I’m not going to make any money by selling ice creams, why not give them away, and make people happy?" Allen says. And so, every summer since that first one, he’s traveled from coast to coast across America in his old Bessie, giving away ice creams. 56. The author mentioned childhood memories at the beginning in order to _____. A. tell that ice creams were not common snacks then B. show that his childhood was interesting C. introduce the Ice Cream Man, Matt Allen D. show that he did not like summers 57. We can infer from the passage that people call Allen the Ice Cream Man because____. A. he hands out many free ice creams B. he sells ice creams C. he likes ice creams D. it is his nickname 58. What’s the meaning of the underlined word "options" in the thi rd paragraph? A. Opinions. B. Decisions. C. Choices. D. Goals. 59. What does Allen think of life? A. He doesn’t care about what life throws on his way. B. He thinks it necessary to have a try in life. C. He thinks it is important to wait and see. D. He doesn’t think life is very easy. 60. What does the passage mainly want to tell us?
A. Helpfulness is a kind of life attitude. B. We should never be defeated by the difficulty ahead. C. It’s a kind act to pass on what others give us in l ife. D. It’s easy to help people who are in trouble.
难度★ Australia is a young nation, and the Australian people come from many different cultural backgrounds. As you make friends here, you’ll find there is no such a person as a "typical" Australian. You’ll come across a wide range of social customs and v iews of life, some of which may be very new to you. Here we want to present some of the different ways of greeting. First names are used more often in Australia than in many other countries. Australians often greet their friends, and even people they don’t know with" Hey mate (同伴)"or" How’s it going guys?" An Australian may encourage you to use his given name, to address him informally, or even to use his nickname. A nickname is most commonly used among friends, and is a sign of acceptance and friendship. The formal title or family name is only used in formal or other special situations, such as first meetings, or when you speak to someone like a professor. Titles like Mr, Mrs, Ms or Dr are then used, together with the family name. In Australia one looks directly at someone when talking to show interest in what he or she is saying. Australians make direct eye contact regardless of social position, and children are taught to look directly at adults. It is not considered impolite to give someone something with your left hand. 61. The passage is mainly about ______. A. how to get along with others in Australia B. when to talk to people in Australia C. how to greet others in Australia D. where to visit in Australia
62. Which of the following would not be used among friends? A. Morning, Mr. Green! B. How’s it going? C. Hey mate! D. See you around! 63. If you use a person’s nickname in Australia, it probably means that ____. A. you are close friends B. you respect him a lot C. you don’t like his real name D. you like using nicknames 64. From the passage we learn that Australians _______. A. are serious about how people address them B. use given names when meeting someone for the first time C. don’t mind others giving things with left hands D. don’t use formal titles when talking to professors 65. According to the last paragraph, when talking to Australians, you should ____. A. call their family names B. make direct eye contact C. use their formal titles D. show interest in everything about them
难度★★ All across the United States, honey bees are flying away from their bee houses and dying. Empty bee houses are causing worries about some important food crops. Bees give us a lot more than delicious honey. They are pollinators (传粉媒介) helping plants to produce fruit and nuts. Dr. Jeff Pettis says, "When a lot of bees die, the whole group is at risk." Researchers are trying to find out why so many bees are dying.
However, Pettis explains bees are hard to study. Most die away from the bee house, so researchers don’t have dead bodies to study. And when researchers return to a bee house after two weeks, about half the bees they studied on their first visit will be dead. These busy insects fly away from their bee house in search of flowers, so when bees pick up diseases or poisons (毒), it is hard to know exactly where that happened. Researchers do have some ideas about what could be affecting the health of the bees. They could be sick from poisons, or they might not be getting enough good food. And a virus could be doing the killing. Pettis is hoping for a solution, because bees are very important. "Here’s a good example of what bees give us," he says. "You can eat plain oatmeal ( 燕麦) every day, and oats are pollinated by the wind. But if you want to add nuts to your oatmeal, those are the things you have to thank bees for." 66. Which would be the best title for the passage? A. Honey Bees Are Dangerous B. Honey Bees’Death Mystery C. What Honey Bees Give Us D. How to Protect Honey Bees 67. Why are researchers worried about the death of bees? A. There will be fewer flowers. B. People will have no oatmeal to eat. C. The empty bee houses are dangerous. D. Bees help plants produce fruit and nuts. 68. It is hard to find out why the bees are dying because ______. A. lots of bees die where they live B. researchers don’t study the dead bodies of bees C. researchers can’t study on the same bees each time D. the bees studied by researchers c an’t be recognized 69. Which of the following reasons are given to explain why bees are dying? ①They may get a disease. ②There is little good food for them to eat.
③There are fewer places for them to live in. ④They may be killed by viruses. A. ①②③ B. ①②④ C. ②③④ D. ①③④ 70. What is the function of the underlined part in the last paragraph? A. It shows what kind of insect a bee is. B. It shows what people can eat. C. It shows what can be added to our food. D. It shows the importance of protecting bees.
难度★★★ A British-designed electronic newspaper made of plastic and no larger than a table mat( 垫 )is to enter the market next year. The new newspaper was conceived( 设想 )by Cambridge University scientists. They came up with the idea of replacing silicon chips( 硅 片)with plastic ones. It is being developed by Plastic Logic, a company based in Dresden, Germany. "It looks just like a table mat, and is as light as a magazine. But you can download hundreds of newspapers at the touch of a button, and read them quite safely," the BBC reported on its website. The plastic paper is produced in a safe "clean room" at the Plastic Logic factory, which opened last month as the world’s first plastic -electronics factory. Every part of the product, from the screen to the electronics, is made of plastic. And it is described by engineer Dean Baker as "top quality", as it could help solve the problem of waste associated with traditional newspapers. "There’s a huge amount of waste. We have paper distributed(分发)all over the country each day and then thrown into the bin. This doesn’t need to happen a ny more.
All of the copies could be made electronically and stored on a single e-reader with the appearance of paper," he says. People are expecting to see the plastic newspaper next year, the BBC says. 71. According to the first paragraph, the electronic newspaper _____________ . A. is made of silicon chips B. is smaller than a table mat C. was developed by a company in England D. was designed by more than one person 72. What’s special about the electronic newspaper? A. It looks like a magazine. B. It’s as light as a table mat. C. People can download and read articles on it. D. People can take it to anywhere with a button. 73. Dean Baker described the electronic newspaper as "top quality", mainly because _______. A. it is produced in a "clean room" at the Plastic Logic factory B. it can solve the problem of waste from traditional newspapers C. it was a product of Cambridge University scientists D. it will replace traditional newspapers 74. From the last two paragraphs we learn that the electronic newspaper will _____________. A. produce a huge amount of waste B. be harder to read than a traditional newspaper C. have no visual appearance D. save a huge amount of paper 75. The author’s attitude toward the electronic newspaper is ____________. A. positive B. doubtful C. negative D. curious

◆第一节阅读表达(共 5 小题；每小题 3 分,满分 15 分) 阅读下面短文,并根据短文后的要求答题(请注意问题后的字数要求)。
News affects us in many ways. It touches our hearts; it gives us inspiration( 灵 感); it enriches (充实)our emotions. News lets us know who we are. Aft er all, it’s only human nature to react to things we hear, both good and bad. Above all, news affects the way we think. Just one story can give out fear into millions of homes worldwide. It can lead to people becoming less trusting of strangers on the streets or those sitting next to them on airplanes and buses. Secondly, news affects the way we act. More than ever, people are locking their doors, almost making themselves prisoners in their own homes. The young and the old alike are taking self-defense classes _________ what to do in case of danger. And some young black boys run away at the first sight of the police —even when they haven’t done anything against the law. Finally, news affects the way we react. We cry at the sight of the homeless or those affected by disasters, but smile at pictures of efforts to help people. We respond to all the news. News, good or bad, is as much a part of our lives as the air we breathe. And, like the air, we take it in. But it’s how we let it out t hat really matters. 76.
