    Grown-ups are often surprised by how well they remember something they learned as children but have never practiced ever since. A man who has not had a chance to go swimming for years can still swim as well as ever when he gets back in the water. He can get on a bicycle after many years and still ride away. A mother who has not thought about the words for years can teach her daughter the poem that begins "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" or remember the story of Cinderella or Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

    One explanation is the law of overlearning, which can be stated as follows: Once we have learned something, extra learning attempts or tries to increase the length of time we will remember it.

    In childhood we usually continue to practice such skills as swimming, and bicycle riding long after we have learned them. We continue to listen to and remind ourselves of words such as "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" and childhood tales such as Cinderella and Goldilocks. We not only learn but overlearn.

    The multiplication tables(乘法口诀表) are an exception to the general rule that we forget rather quickly the things that we learn in school, because they are another of the things we overlearn in childhood.

    The law of overlearning explains why cramming(突击学习)for an examination, though it may result in a passing grade, is not a satisfactory way to learn a college course. By cramming, a student may learn the subject well enough to pass the examination, but he is likely soon to forget almost everything he learned. A little overlearning, on the other hand, is really necessary for one's future development.

    32. What is the main idea of paragraph 1?

    A. People remember well what they learned in childhood.

    B. Children have a better memory than grown-ups.

    C. Poem reading is a good way to learn words.

    D. Stories for children are easy to remember.

    33.The author tells the experience in childhood in order to ________.

    A. remember the good old days                      

    B. let readers follow the example

    C. explain the law of overlearning                     

    D. help readers understand the importance of knowledge

    34. According to the author, being able to use multiplication tables is________.

    A. a step towards studies                             B. a result of overlearning

    C. a special case of cramming                           D. a skill to deal with math problems

    35. What is the author's opinion on cramming?

    A. It's helpful only in a limited way.          B. It causes failure in college exams.

    C. It's possible to result in poor memory.          D. It increases students' learning interest.

    Liverpool, my hometown, is a special city. It is so unique that in 2004 it became a World Heritage(遗产)Site.

    I recently returned to my home city and my first stop was at a museum on the River Mersey. Blanketed in mist(薄雾), Victorian architecture rose from the banks of the river, responded to the sounds of sea-birds, and appeared unbelievably charming. When I headed toward the centre, I found myself surrounded by buildings that mirror the best palaces of Europe. It is not hard to imagine why, on first seeing the city, most visitors would be overpowered by the beauty of the noble buildings, which are solid signs of Liverpool’s history.

    As if to stress its cultural role, Liverpool has more museums and galleries than most cities in Britain. At Walker Art Gallery, I was told that it has the best collections of Victorian paintings in the world, and is the home of modern art in the north of England. However, culture is more than galleries. Liverpool offers many music events. As Britain’s No. 1 music city, it has the biggest city music festival in Europe, and its musicians are famous all over the world. Liverpool is also well-known for its football and other sports events. Every year, the Mersey River Festival attracts thousands of visitors, making the city a place of wonder.

    As you would expect from such a city, there are restaurants serving food from around the world. When my trip was about to complete, I chose to rest my legs in Liverpool’s famous Philharmonic pub(酒馆). It is a monument to perfection, and a heritage attraction itself.

    Being a World Heritage Site, my home city is certainly a place of “outstanding universal value”. It is a treasure house with plenty of secrets for the world to explore.

    29. Visitors who see the city for the first time would be deeply impressed by________.

    A. its charming banks                                 B. its famous museums

    C. its wonderful palaces                                    D. its attractive buildings

    30. Liverpool has important cultural role because _________.

    A. it has the best collections of Victorian paintings

    B. it has museums, galleries, music festival and sports events

    C. the Mersey River Festival attracts thousands of visitors

    D. the best palaces of Europe are in Liverpool

    31. The author uses the Philharmonic pub to prove that________.

    A. Liverpool is a well-known city for its restaurants

    B. Liverpool is an impressive place full of attraction

    C. a pub is a wonderful place for visitors to relax themselves

    D. a pub is a perfect choice for visitors to complete their journey

    On Sunday morning in Rio, when Chinese women’s volleyball team took on Serbia for the Olympic title, 70 percent of Chinese families watched live broadcast on TV, easily beating the audience rating for Lunar New Year Gala. As team captain Hui Ruoqi hit a powerful spike to seal it 19-25, 25-17, 25-22, 25-23 on Sunday morning in Rio, applause and cheers almost blew off the roof of Maracanazinho. China’s news program Xinwen Lianbo spent seven of 30 minutes reliving the story. This is their third Olympic gold medal the Chinese women’s volleyball teams has win since the 1980s.

    In Rio, the Chinese women’s volleyball team was assigned to the so-called group of death and faced several strong competitors. But the team never gave up. When the team lost its Rio Olympic opener to the Netherlands on Aug 6, Lang Ping urged her players to support one another through the ups and downs. When China lost to Serbia and the United States, finishing fourth to get a narrow escape from Group B and had to face host Brazil in the quarters, Lang Ping helped her players grow from each defeat on the pressure-packed Olympic stage.

    Lang Ping, nicknamed “Iron Hammer”, is a national heroine as well as a legend in world sports. She made histories in coaching many clubs and national teams to top level. She resigned due to health reasons in 1998. However, when the Chinese women’s volleyball faced difficulties after the Beijing Olympics, the 52-year-old lady came back in 2013 and took the coaching position. She dug out a group of young talents including Rio 2016 MVP Zhu Ting to help seasoned players Hui Ruoqi and Xu Yunli. But more importantly, she passed on the spirit to them.

    Among all the Chinese sports teams, the women’s volleyball remain the most special one, whose victories fueled Chinese confidence in the 1980s and still represent the best things that sports can offer to the Chinese: perseverance, courage and unity.

    29. What can we learn from Paragraph 1?

    A. The game against Serbia attracted more Chinese audience than Lunar New Year Gala.

    B. China’s Xinwen Lianbo reported the team’s victory for 30 minutes.

    C. The roof of Maracanazinho was blown off by the excited audience.

    D. The Chinese women’s volleyball team was beaten by Serbia.

    30. It can be inferred from the text that_______.

    A. the team beat the Netherlands on Aug 6.

    B. Lang resigned from a club due to health problems in 2013.

    C. Lang brought the Chinese women’s volleyball back to the Olympic glory

    D. after the Rio Olympic opener, the team experienced non-stop victories

    31. Who does the underline word “she “in Paragraph 3 refer to?

    A. Zhu Ting.                         B. Hui Ruoqi.                       C. Xu Yunli.                         D. Lang Ping.

    32. What make the Chinese women’s volleyball team so special?

    A. The coach and strong competitors.                     B. Some young talents and seasoned players.

    C. Each defeat and pressure.                                   D. The teams’ success and spirits.

    Around the world in 80 days-alone

    Who knew? Well, we knew a little about Nellie Bly, the woman journalist of the 1890s. After all, she was once considered the most famous woman in the United States. But Elizabeth Bisland? Never heard the name. Let alone that she took the challenge to race Bly around the world. In 80 days. And alone, no less.

    But they did. And in Victorian times when women seldom went to the store alone, let alone to Ceylon.

    In Eighty Days, Matthew Goodman has woven(编撰) the story of these two women who were as different as the directions they took in the race. Bly, an energetic newspaperwoman who exposed evil(罪恶) wherever she found it, headed east. Bisland, a magazine reporter who preferred the classics, headed west.

    Well, we’re certainly not going to tell you which woman won this race. But we will say the two women gave Goodman enough material to bring the 19th century alive, and to show that Bly, at least, ushered(引领) in the world of the famous people we know today. But as is still the way today, the famous people are a slippery slope as Goodman convincingly proves.

    Using the writings of both women, Goodman, a creative writing instructor who has written two other nonfiction books, was able to catch what each was thinking and experiencing as they made their way on steam ships and trains. Bly was actually quite dismissive(轻视的) of her competitor. As for Bisland, she at first didn’t even want to take up the challenge.

    Some may find what happened to the woman after the race as interesting as their life during the race. Maybe more. Their separate fates were also as different as the two women, right down to their tombstones(墓碑).

    Almost 400 pages is a lot of time to spend with these two, and at times it can seem more a slog (hard boring work without stopping) than a race. But if you’re interested in strange little corners of history, Eighty Days won’t seem anywhere that long.

    46. According to the passage, in Victorian Times, women __________.

    A. liked travelling around the world          B. were independent in work and life

    C. seldom went to public places alone             D. were competitive to race against others

    47. We can learn from the passage that Nellie Bly __________.

    A. was less famous than Elizabeth Bisland  

    B. was a female reporter who exposed evil

    C. was unwilling to take the challenge at first

    D. regarded the race as a great event in his career

    48. What do you know about the race from the passage? __________

    A. Nellie Bly narrowly won the race in the end.

    B. The two women raced in the different direction.

    C. The two women made their way mainly on trains.

    D. Many other women wanted to compete in the race.

    49. What can we infer from the passage? __________

    A. It would be boring to read the 400-page book.

    B. The author has never written other nonfiction books.

    C. The author can picture the 19th century to the readers.

    D. The famous people today are totally different from those in the past

    50. What is the book Eighty Days mainly about? __________

    A. The final winner of the race.       

    B. The history in the Victorian period.

    C. The world of famous people in the past and the present.

    D. The story between 2 different women in and after the race.

    Though there are about 400 languages from all over the world that are in danger of disappearing completely. Zoque-Ayapaneco, a native Mexican language, is considered the most likely to become extinct because the only two people in the world that speak it fluently do not talk to each other. It's not because they live in different countries, states or even villages. In fact, Manuel Segovia and Isidro Velazquez, both in their 70s, live within 500 yards of each other in the village of Ayapa in the Southern Mexican State of Tabasco.

    They, however, refuse to communicate because they simply don’t have much in common. Segovia is apparently a little frank in nature while Velazquez is described as shy. Segovia was at least able to talk in Zoque-Ayapaneco with his brother until their father passed away about 12 years ago, and still manages to practice it with his family, especially his son Manuel, who has been trying to learn it and hopes to become fluent enough to teach it to the next generation for the last five years. Velazquez, on the other hand, has not been heard speaking the language with anybody.

    It is said that the language used to be widely spoken in the village, but the younger generation shunned it for fear of being laughed at, and it therefore began to die a slow death as the elders passed away. Unless the two men get their acts together, the only way to hear the language will be to either listen to Manuel's not-so-fluent statement or see them talk in a documentary entitled "Lengua Muerta" (Dead Language) that is being filmed to capture Zoque-Ayapaneco and 364 other native Mexican languages that are in a similar state.

    We surely hope Segovia and Velazquez soon find something common to talk about. Maybe the fact is that the language is dying and they should start encouraging and teaching the next generation together.

    41. Segovia and Velazquez don't talk to each other because______.

    A. they both are too shy                                B. they are too familiar to talk

    C. they are different in personality                 D. they live in different villages

    42. What do we know about Zoque-Ayapaneco?

    A. It is a Southern American language.

    B. It was widely used twelve years ago.

    C. It will be popular in Mexico in the near future.

    D. It's being learned by Manuel in the village now.

    43. The underlined word "shunned" in Paragraph 4 probably means______

    A. avoided                  B. favored         C. imitated           D. identified

    44. From the passage, we can conclude that______

    A. altogether 365 languages are becoming extinct in Mexico.

    B. Segovia and Velazquez will communicate with each other soon.
    C. the government cares about the protection of Zoque-Ayapaneco.
    D. the film 'Lengua Muerta" is made to teach endangered languages.

    45. What's the main idea of the passage?           

    A. World's endangered languages are being filmed.
     B. Villagers are trying to protect their old language.
     C. An endangered language is spoken by only two people.
     D. There are a lot of languages in Mexico.

    Some of the world's most well-known brands, including Ericsson, Volvo and Ikea, all originated from SwedenThe country also brought us the zipper, used by many men in the world on a daily basis, according to Swedish Wire, a news website

    With a population of barely over 9 million and gross domestic production GDP at about $538 billion in 2011-just a thirteenth that of China. Sweden seems like an unlikely candidate for a leader of innovation (创新).Yet, for the past three years, it has consistently topped the European Commission's Regional Innovation Scoreboard, coming first in 2010 and 2012, and second in 2011

    Sweden's neighbors, including Denmark, famous for such brands as Nokia and Lego, are also known for their innovative cultures

        How have these Scandinavian countries managed to make these achievements?

        Pasi Sahlerrg, Director General of the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture's Centre for International Mobility, believes the education system is central to the success of Scandinavian countriesA key feature of this system is that every child's education is personalized and teachers are highly trained

        "In Finland, 'School-readiness' means getting the school ready to meet the needs of its students, rather than getting the students ready for school," said Sahlerrg

        Limited homework, no standardized tests and the absence of a national curriculum are intended to teach students how to manage themselves independently and to organize their time creatively, both vital for encouraging innovation

        Of course, there are factors beyond the education system that also determine the rate of innovationSo how to imitate Scandinavia's success in innovation? Foster (培育)a well-educated generation, provide it with the necessary financial resources, establish a supportive policy environment for it to turn the innovative ideas it generates into success

    38The first paragraph is written to _______                

        Aintroduce the topic of the text                    Bdescribe some quality products

        Bis well-known for its innovative cultures

        Cpresents to the world such brands as Nokia and Lego

        Dhad a very high GDP in 2011

    40According to Pasi Sahlerrg, Scandinavia's success in innovation lies in _____

        Aschool-readiness                     Bthe system of education

        Cteacher training                     Dpersonalized teaching

    Forget about the “post—1995 generation”. Young people born in 1995 or later have another name in English—Generation Z.

    Now entering adulthood and soon to join the workforce, Generation Z grew up in a special period of time—a time in which technology developed fast, social changes happened every day, the internet became universal and, sadly, so did global terrorism.

    It is believed that Generation Z is the generation that is going to shape our future, which is why policy makers, sociologists and company leaders are trying their best to understand these young people.

    So, what are Gen Z-ers really like?

    Most people agree that the single biggest difference between Gen Z and other generations is how connected they are. This is a group of people who have been familiar with social media as soon as they were born. Social media has changed the way Gen Z-ers communicate with each other and how they get and understand information.

    “We are the first true digital natives. I can almost create a document, edit it, post a photo on Instagram and talk on the phone, all at the same time,” said Hannah Payne, an 18-year-old student at UCLA, according to The New York Times. “Generation Z takes in information very fast and loses interest just as fast.”

    It may be true that Generation Z-ers have a shorter attention span (注意力持续时间)than a goldfish, but sice they grew up among social changes, they are more active in politics. According to the British Election Study, 58 percent of 18-t0-24-year –old voted in the 2015 general election in the UK, a big jump from 38 percent in 2005.

    Generation Z-ers are also culture creators. “Growing up with the internet has freed this generation from traditional cultural expression.” Wrote Grace Masback, a Huffington Post blogger and a Gen Z-er herself. According to Masback, these young people are no longer willing to let their creativity. According to Masback, these young people are no longer willing to let their creativity be limited by their parents of traditional rules. They watch videos and read news online instead of on TV, and they share their experiences on social media.

    “We decide what kind of content we want to experience and choose how we experience it,” wrote Masback.

    33. Which is TRUE about Gen Z-ers, according to the article?

       A. Face-to-face communication is challenging for them

       B. Often doing many things at the same time affects their efficiency

       C. They don’t bother to think about the information they at carefully

       D. They show more interest in politics than in other fields

    34. What can we infer from the last two paragraphs?

       A. Gen Z-ers enjoy great freedom to express themselves

       B. Gen Z-ers enjoy teaching their parents about new cultural trends

       C. Gen Z-ers are against traditional culture

       D. Gen Z-ers are unwilling to obey their parents

    35. Which word can best describe the author’s attitude towards Generation Z?

       A. Worried     B. Critical    C. Appreciative    D Neutral(中立的)

    In ancient Egypt, a shopkeeper discovered that he could attract customers to his shop simply by making changes to its environment. Modern businesses have been following his lead, with more tactics(策略).

    One tactic involves where to display the goods. For example, stores place fruits and vegetables in the first section. They know that customers who buy the healthy food first will feel happy so that they

    will buy more junk food later in their trip. In department stores, section is generally next to the women's cosmetics(化妆品) sectionwhile the shop assistant is going back to find the right size shoe, bored customers are likely to wander over cosmetics they might want to try later.

    Besides, businesses seek to appeal to customers’ senses. Stores notice that the smell of baked goods encourages shopping, they make their own bread each morning and then fan the bread smell into the store throughout the day. Music sells goods, too. Researchers in Britain found that when French music was played, sales of French wine went up.

    When it comes to the selling of houses, businesses also use highly rewarding tactics. They find that customers make decisions in the first few second upon walking in the door, and turn it into a business opportunity. A California builder designed the structure of its houses smartly. When entering the house, the customer would see the Pacific Ocean through the windows, and then the poll through an open stairway leading to the lower level.

    The MacArthur Foundation late last month announced its latest crop of “genius grants”, and once again you thought maybe, just maybe, this was your year.

    And why not? These days, we’re all geniuses. We might be “marketing geniuses” or “cooking geniuses” or “TV geniuses”. We have so weakened “genius” that it’s fast joining the company of “natural” and “mindful” (留心), words left inactive through overuse and misuse.

    Admittedly, the word is tough to nail down. Sometimes we assume genius equivalent to raw intelligence. But many of humanity’s greatest breakthroughs were achieved by those with only modest IQs.

    Sometimes we think of the genius as someone extremely knowledgeable, but that definition also falls short. During Albert Einstein’s time, other scientists knew more physics than Einstein did, but history doesn’t remember them. That’s because they didn’t make use of that knowledge the way Einstein did. They weren’t able to, as he put it, “regard old questions from a new angle”.

    The genius is not a know-it-all but a see-it-all, someone who, working with the material available to all of us, is able to make surprising and useful connections. True genius involves not merely an extra advance, but a conceptual leap. As philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer put it: Talent hits the target no one else can hit; genius hits the target no one else can see.

    We’ve lost sight of this truth, and too often grant the title of genius on talented people hitting visible targets. A good example is the much-boasted announcement earlier this year that scientists had, for the first time, recorded the sound of two black holes bumping, a billion light-years away. It was a remarkable discovery, no doubt, but it did not represent a dramatic shift in how we understand the universe. It merely confirmed Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

    As Plato observed, “What is honored in a country is cultivated there.” What do we honor? Digital technology, and the convenience it represents, so naturally we get a Steve Jobs or a Mark Zuckerberg as our “geniuses”, which, in point of fact, they aren’t.

    The iPhone and Facebook are wonderful inventions. In many ways, they make our lives a bit easier, a bit more convenient. If anything, though, a true genius makes our lives more difficult, more unsettled. William Shakespeare’s words provide more anxiety than relief, and the world felt a bit more secure before Charles Darwin came along. Zuckerberg and Jobs may have changed our world, but they haven’t yet changed our worldview.

    We need to recover genius, and a good place to start is by putting the brakes on Genius Flooding.

    63. The key factor that sets geniuses and talents apart is that __________.

    A. geniuses have a larger range of knowledge B. geniuses have access to far more resources

    C. geniuses can see visible targets D. geniuses approach things differently

    64. The reasons why people naturally regard Steve Jobs & Mark Zuckerberg as geniuses include all the following EXCEPT that __________.

    A. their achievements bring people convenience

    B. they have extraordinary intelligence

    C. they are native to the country where digital technology is highly valued

    D. they satisfy people’s needs in the age of high technology

    65. What can we infer from the passage?

    A. We should stop the improper use of “natural” and “mindful”.

    B. The first recording of two black holes bumping each other is a genius breakthrough.

    C. Charles Darwin is hardly a genius.

    D. More geniuses remain to be found in our life.

    66. What is the best title for the passage?

    A. Get a new word, genius. B. Learn from a new model, genius.

    C. Join in a new group, genius. D. Make a new friend, genius.

    It’s true that high-school coding classes aren’t essential for learning computer science in college. Students without experience can catch up after a few introductory courses, said Tom Cortina, the assistant dean at Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science.

    However, Cortina said, early exposure is beneficial. When younger kids learn computer science, they learn that it’s not just a confusing, endless string of letters and numbers — but a tool to build apps, or create artwork, or test hypotheses (假设). It’s not as hard for them to transform their thought processes as it is for older students. Breaking down problems into bite-sized parts and using code to solve them becomes normal. Giving more children this training could increase the number of people interested in the field and help fill the jobs gap, Cortina said.

    Students also benefit from learning something about coding before they get to college, where introductory computer-science classes are packed to the edge, which can drive the less-experienced or less-determined students away.

    The Flatiron School, where people pay to learn programming, started as one of the many coding camps has become popular for adults looking for a career change. The high-schoolers get the same curriculum, but “we try to adjust lessons to things they’re interested in,” said Victoria Friedman, an instructor. For instance, one of the apps the students are developing suggests movies based on your mood.

    The students in the Flatiron class probably won’t drop out of high school and build the next Facebook.

    Programming languages have a quick turnover, so the “Ruby on Rails” language they learned may not even be relevant by the time they enter the job market. But the skills they learn — how to think logically through a problem and organize the results — apply to any coding language, said Deborah Seehorn, an education consultant for the state of North Carolina.

    Indeed, the Flatiron students might not go into IT at all. But creating a future army of coders is not the only purpose of the classes. These kids are going to be surrounded by computers — in their pockets, in their offices, in their homes — for the rest of their lives. The younger they learn how computers think, how to coax the machine into producing what they want — the earlier they learn that they have the power to do that — the better.

    74. Cortina holds that early exposure to computer science makes it easier to ______.

    A. remodel the way of thinking             B. perfect artwork production

    C. formulate logical hypotheses             D. complete future job training

    75. Deborah Seehorn believes that the skills learned at Flatiron will ______.

    A. have to be upgraded when new technologies come

    B. need improving when students look for jobs

    C. help students learn other computer languages

    D. enable students to make big quick money

    76. According to the last paragraph, Flatiron students are expected to ______.

    A. stay longer in the information technology industry

    B. become better prepared for the digitalized world

    C. bring forth innovative computer technologies

    D. compete with a future army of programmers

    77. The word “coax” in the last paragraph is closest in meaning to ______.

    A. misguide        B. challenge         C. frighten            D. persuade

    A Nationwide Bestseller

    It’s likely that everything you learned about America’s ancient history is wrong.

    The new book, 1491, completely changes our understanding of the Americas before the arrival of Columbus in 1492.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    When Columbus landed there were probably more people in the Americas than there were in Europe.

    The peoples of North America had such healthy life-styles that as late as the 19th century they continued to be the tallest people on earth.

    Facts have shown that the Americas were populated as long as 33,000 years ago.

    4,000 years ago Mesoamerican farmers developed corn in a feat (技艺) of genetic engineering that still isn’t completely understood.

    COMMENTS ON 1491

    “In the tradition of Jared Diamond & John McPhee, a totally new view of pie-Columbian America.”                                                          

    —Richard Rhodes

    “Attractively written and really absorbing ... Charles C. Mann has produced a book that’s part detective story, part epic (史诗) and part tragedy (悲剧). He has taken on a vast topic: thousands of years, two huge continents, and cultures.”

                                             — Charles Matthews, San Jose Mercury News

    “Powerful and challenging.”

                                                       —Alan Taylor, Washington Post

    “A pleasure to read as well as a wonderful education.”                     

    —Howard Zinn

    70. On the whole, 1491 is a book mainly about America’s_______ .

    A. life-styles       B. population              C. history                   D. agriculture

    C. It is challenging and revolutionary.       D. It is humorous and persuasive.

    72. From this passage, we can learn______.

    A. people settled in the Americas a little earlier than 1492

    B. North Americans were the tallest in the 18th century in the world

    C. Mesoamerican farmers knew genetic engineering 5,000 years ago

    D. the population in the Americas was smaller than that in Europe in 1492

        Wi-Fi free of charge has become very important to us: many stores and shopping malls offer it, restaurants use it to attract customers, and for libraries and coffee shops it is a must-have service.

        Even when people are traveling, they scan for free Wi-Fi. When selecting or rating a hotel, six in ten travelers believe that unlimited Wi-Fi is the most important factor.

        “Today, people will never forget to pack their smart phones, tablets and laptops into the suitcase,” said the Daily Mail. “We rely on free Wi-Fi heavily when traveling—especially when it comes to checking social media, checking out travel tips, and accessing websites.”

        However, despite the opportunities that free Wi-Fi gives us, “our over-reliance on technology has come at a price, with travelers feeling unable to escape social media”, said Lonely Planet, the world’s largest travel guide brand.

        Anita Isalska, Lonely Planet editor and tech addict, was forced to unplug when in an isolated (隔绝的) camp in Greenland recently. “Adjusting to this slower pace, I began to realize that: social media had changed into a habit,” she wrote. “I had believed I was capturing(捕捉) moments, but in reality my busy fingers were preventing me enjoying travel’s deepest pleasures. How fully can you appreciate a huge glacier or wild flowers when your brain is selecting the right photo filter (滤镜) or the perfect six seconds to take photos?”

        In September, Lonely Planet released 10 predictions for the future of global travel. One of them was that true escapes will be highly valued in future, so remote hotels will start to make their lack of the Internet into an appealing feature. Would you like to have an unplugged holiday?

    12. According to the passage, people nowadays tend to do the following EXCEPT _________        .

    A. enjoying travelling better without carrying any Hi-Tech equipment

    B. thinking ill of a hotel without Wi-Fi

    C. getting out of a library that has no access to the Internet

    D. making travel plans via the Internet

    13. Through the fourth paragraph, the author intends to _________        .

    A. get into another topic

    B. give more evidence to the view mentioned

    C. show a different opinion on the topic

    D. summarize the previous paragraphs

    14. What has Anita Isalska realized in Greenland?

    A. Travelers cannot survive without Hi-Tech.

    B. Her over-reliance on technology has come at a price.

    C. Taking pictures doesn’t affect appreciating nature.

    D. Her fingers are not flexible enough to take enough pictures.

    15. What does “an unplugged holiday” mean in the last paragraph?

    A. A camping holiday.                       B. A holiday without taking pictures.

    C. A holiday in a remote hotel.         D. A holiday without Wi-Fi.

           When studying in the USI feel that many Chinese students are too shy to connect with American students. They say it's the language barrier that stops them. But in my mindthe reasons are beyond language

        The first reason may be that these students feel a little inferior to American studentsespecially when they don't speak English well. Because of the cultural and economic differences between the Western and Eastern worlds in generalsome Chinese students subconsciously(下意识地)think highly of Western students, looking down on themselves.Secondsome Chinese students are too afraid of feeling embarrassed. Because of the language problemChinese students often find it hard to understand the jokes their American peers make. Some may feel so embarrassed that they try to avoid talking to Americans.

    There is also a cultural reason. China and the US have very different cultures. It's natural that students from these two countries find it hard to understand each other. Some Chinese students choose not to watch American TV shows or listen to American music since they don't understand the jokes in American comedy or the lyrics of a popular song. That leads to further segregation(隔阂)between themselves and American peers.

        I'm no expertbut I do want to give a few tips to students who are planning to study abroad and are interested to fit in. Firstbe confident. Your foreign classmates are not superior to youDon't think of them all as hard-to-reach people. Secondalways say yes to social activities whether they are organized by your school or your friends. Go to watch sports games even if you are not playing and are just there to cheer for the team. Thirddon't try to improve your English merely by memorizing vocabulary. Try to watch TV showsread popular booksand just talk to people. Rememberlanguage is not a barrier and it never will be. The real barriers exist because you are not trying.

    8The underlined phrase “inferior to” in Paragraph 2 probably means“     ”

        A. interested in   B. less important than    C. senior to     D. colder than

    9What does the author think is the barrier for the Chinese students in Paragraph 3

        A. Music.       B. Comedy.            C. Culture.     D. Segregation.

    10What is the purpose of the text?

        A. To give some suggestions.        BTo attract Chinese students.

        C. To introduce the US culture .      D. To overcome the language barrier.

    11Which part is the text most likely taken from in a newspaper?

        A. World.       B. Discovery .      C  Science.     D. Education.

     In ancient Egyptthe pharaoh(法老)treated the poor message runner like a prince when he arrived at the palaceif he brought good news. Howeverif the exhausted runner had the misfortune to bring the pharaoh unhappy newshis head was cut off.

    Shades of that spirit spread over today’s conversations. Once a friend and I packed up some peanut butter and sandwiches for an outing. As we walked light-heartedly out the doorpicnic basket in handa smiling neighbor looked up at the sky and said“Oh boybad day for a picnic. The weatherman says it’s going to rain.” I wanted to strike him on the face with the peanut butter and sandwiches. Not for his stupid weather reportfor his smile.

    Several months ago I was racing to catch a bus. As I breathlessly put my handful of cash across the Greyhound counterthe sales agent said with a broad smile“Ohthat bus left five minutes ago.” Dreams of head cutting!

    It’s not the news that makes someone angry. It’s the unsympathetic attitude with which it’s delivered. Everyone must give bad news from time to timeand winning professionals do it with the proper attitude. A doctor advising a patient that she needs an operation does it in a caring way. A boss informing an employee he didn’t get the job takes on a sympathetic tone. Big winners knowwhen delivering any bad newsthey should share the feeling of the receiver.

    Unfortunatelymany people are not aware of this. When you’re tired from a long flighthas a hotel clerk cheerfully said that your room isn’t ready yetWhen you had your heart set on the toast beefhas your waiter merrily told you that he just served the last pieceIt makes you as traveler or diner want to land your fist right on their unsympathetic faces.

    Had my neighbor told me of the upcoming rainstorm with sympathyI would have appreciated his warning. Had the Greyhound salesclerk sympathetically informed me that my bus had already leftI probably would have said“Ohthat’s all right. I’ll catch the next one.” Big winnerswhen they bear bad newsdeliver bombs with the emotion the bombarded(被轰炸的)person is sure to have.

    8In Paragraph 1the writer tells the story of the pharaoh to________.

    Amake a comparison      Bintroduce a topic

    Cdescribe a scene               Doffer an argument

    9In the writer’s opinionhis neighbor was________.

    Afriendly        Bwarm-hearted    Cnot helpful   Dnot considerate

    10What is the main idea of the text?

    AHelping others sincerely is the key to business success.

    BDelivering bad news properly is important in communication.

    CReceiving bad news requires great courage.

    DLearning ancient traditions can be useful.

    To me , everyone has at least one talent, and while it sometimes takes you a lifetime to find, it does exist.

    One sunny afternoon in 1953, we went out to the school’s playground for our gym class. The teacher taught us various track and field events . I was a loser in all of them.Then came the javelin(标枪). Finally ,when everyone had a chance to throw, the longest throw went about 30 yards. Now it was my turn. I raised the javelin over my head, took six quick steps and let it go . I watched as the javelin took off. As it went past the 50-yard mark, it was still going. Then people began cheering. Nobody could believe what little Orowitxz had just done.

    The very next day I began practicing with it , and every day that summer –for six hours or more---I would throw it in a nearby schoolyard. With an eye to the Olympics, I continued to work out until one day I could go into a college. But not warming up properly, I tore some tissues in my left shoulder, so I gave up my dream of attending the Olypics.

    Several years later, a co-worker, who was a hopeful actor, asked for help in learning his part. When I began reading the script(剧本) , the same kind of fascination that took hold of me when I picked up the javelin appeared. Immediately I attended an acting school. That led to small parts in movies, which at last led me to another area-----directing.

    I feel strongly that we must keep our minds open; we can’t let ourselves be discouraged or depressed when the talent doesn’t readily appear. Yet when it does, we must be prepared to get hold of it right away.

    24. What did we know about the writer in 1953?

    A. He found his true talent.

    B. He was bad at all the subjects.

    C. Many of his classmates didn’t like him.

    D. He decided to choose a career in acting.

    25.Why did the writer give up his dream of attending the Olympics?

    A.Because he didn’t get prepared.

    B. Because he was more interested in acting.

    C. Because he got injured in the left shoulder.

    D. Because he lost interest in throwing the javelin.

    26. When the writer wrote the text, he was probably a(n)______.

    A.teacher B.actor C. director D. athlete

    27. What doesn’t the writer probably agree?

    A.Everyone has a talent although it’s hard to find it sometimes.

    B. The joy of finding something that one can do makes one try his best.

    C. One should be patient and active even if the talent doesn’t appear.

    D. One can find his true talent only after suffering some failures.

    In China, if you are not married by the time you are 30, you are in for trouble: social blame and pressure from family and friends can get you down. And if you are a woman, it’s even worse.

    Many young people get married simply to get other people off their backs (免受别人的指责) . This is a serious compromise. One ends up not marrying the ideal partner.

    There are, however, a few young people who refuse to compromise: if they can’t find a good marriage partner, they say, they would rather not marry at all.

    34-year-old Kate is a university lecturer in English. She said she would not describe herself as celibatarian (独身主义者) but simply a woman who hasn’t come across the right man yet. She has sharp comments for the way in which the old generation looks at marriage.

         “Many people think marriage is a duty---to your parents, family and society. Nobody cares if your marriage is happy or not, she said, I think this is very wrong and I intend to live and act according to my own will.”

    Happily for her, her parents are open-minded and not lay stress on her. But the same does not apply to her friends. They are constantly trying to get her together with some young man or another. She always refuses politely.
