    My wife passed away a few years ago, and I went through the worst time in my life. I even wanted to kill myself. Just for my kids, I had to continue to live and work as a small town doctor at my medical clinic in Hawaii. My kids had gone to live on the mainland, and I was alone. Then they asked me to have a family trip.

    On our trip, we turned on the TV at the motel and saw the second plane crash into the World Trade Center. Seeing it falling down, I said to my kids: “I'm going to Afghanistan.” And a few weeks later, International Medical Corps sent me to set up 20 clinics in provinces where people had no health care. These field clinics surrounded by frightening shoots or deadly bombs, we were eventually serving 27,000 patients a month in a very busy schedule. Tired and nervous, I gradually had a sense of achievement, a sense of purpose, and my depression went away.

    In the years to follow, I went to Indonesia after the tsunami(海啸), Pakistan after the earthquakes, Sudan after the civil war, and Iraq after more and more bombs. Each time after disasters one after another, hundreds of people were killed, wounded and many more had to flee. We once set up movable clinics in an area with 19,000 refugees, and it was supposed to hold 13,000 originally. Flu broke out, one of the biggest killers of kids in refugee camps, and it spread like wildfire. Water and food were also serious problems. “Adventures or not?” I often asked myself.

    When my wife passed away, I thought my life was done. But in reality, it was just getting started. At the end of her life, she went unconscious. I held her head in my hands and told her of all the places we would visit and the exciting adventures we would have.

      I think about the moment many times during my “adventures”. I didn't know how predictive those words would be. But I know that she is still with me.

    28. Where has the doctor been in the past few years?

    A. Some countries where he could set up clinics.

    B. The places where the horrible disasters struck.

    C. Some African countries where flu broke out.

    D. The places where the earthquakes happened.

    29. How would the doctor describe his life after he had worked in Afghanistan?

    A. Tired and troublesome.

    B. Busy and risky.

    C. Meaningful and helpful.

    D. Frightening and depressing.

    30. The underlined word "refugees" means people________.

    A. who are robbed, killed, or wounded

    B. who suffer from flu in movable clinics

    C. who like to take adventures

    D. who have lost homes for wars or other reasons.

    31. Which of the following is true according to the passage?

    A. What the doctor said to his wife before her death became “reality”.

    B. The doctor's wife encouraged him to work in foreign countries.

    C. The doctor's adventures made him understand the love of his wife.

    D. With the true love of his wife, the doctor started to change his life.

    You are a new manager at the American branch of your German firm in Chicago. With a few minutes to spare between meetings, you go to get a quick cup of coffee.

      “Hey, David, how are you?” one of the senior partners at the firm asks you.

      “Good, thank you, Dr. Greer,” you reply. You’ve really been wanting to make a connection with the senior leadership at the firm, and this seems like a great opportunity. But as you start to think of something to say, your American colleague breaks in to steal your spotlight.

       “So Arnold”, your colleague says to your boss, in such a casual manner that it makes your German soul cringe(畏缩), “So what’s your Super bowl prediction? I mean, you’re a Niners fan, right?”

       The conversation moves on, and you walk silently back to your desk with your coffee. You know how important small talk is in the U.S., and you feel jealous of people who can do it well.

       There’s nothing small about the role that small talk plays in American professional culture. People from other countries are often surprised at how important small talk is in the U.S. and how naturally and comfortably people seem to do it ------ with peers, men, women, and even with superiors. You can be the most technically skilled worker in the world, but your ability to progress in your job in the United States is highly dependent on your ability to build and maintain positive relationships with people at work. And guess what skill is critical for building and maintaining these relationships? Small talk.

       What can you do if you are from another culture and want to learn to use small talk in the U.S. to build relationships and establish trust? Work hard to hone(磨练) your own version of American-style small talk. Watch how others do it. You don’t have to imitate what they do; in fact, that would likely backfire because people would see you as inauthentic. But if you can develop your own personal version, that can go a long way toward making you feel comfortable and competence

    28. The author introduces the topic of the passage by______.

       A. offering a plot                                           B. describing an interesting scene

    29.What do we know about German people?

       AThey don’t make so much small talk

       BThey hate making small talk

       CThey usually make small talk in work breaks

       DThey are good at making small talk too

    30.What makes people from other countries surprised in American professional culture?

       A American workers’ ability to make progress

       BAmerican workers’ attitude towards superiors

       CThe special meaning of small talk

       DThe role small talk plays in work settings

    31. What does “backfire” underlined in the last paragraph mean?

       Ahave a warm atmosphere                      Bhave the opposite effect

       Chave a good result                            Dhave a hard time

    "In all things she does, she tries to honor her dad." Mozo's mom, Nikki, said. "Jon started a photo book and didn't finish it, so I think it can be very satisfying for her to finish that task.

    The world is filled with smart, talented, educated and gifted people. We meet them every day. A few days ago, my car was not running well. I pulled it into a garage and the young mechanic had it fixed in just a few minutes. He knew what was wrong by simply listening to the engine. I was amazed. The sad truth is, great talent is not enough.

         I am constantly shocked at how little talented people earn. I heard the other day that less than 5 percent of Americans earn more than $100, 000 a year. A business consultant who specializes in the medical trade was telling me how many doctors and dentists struggle financially. It was this business consultant who gave me the phrase, "They are one skill away from great wealth."

         There is an old saying that goes, "Job means" just over broke (破产)" ". And unfortunately, I would say that the saying applies to millions of people. Because school does not think financial intelligence is intelligence, most workers" live within their means". They work and they pay the bills. Instead I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn.

         When I ask the classes I teach, "How many of you can cook a better hamburger than McDonald’s?” almost all the students raise their hands. I then ask, "So if most of you can cook a better hamburger, how come McDonald’s makes more money than you?" The answer is obvious: McDonald’s is excellent at business systems. The reason so many talented people are poor is because they focus on bui1ding a better hamburger and know little or nothing about business systems. The world is filled with talented poor people. They focus on perfecting their skills at building a better hamburger rather than the skills of selling and delivering the hamburger.

    25. The author mentions the mechanic in the first paragraph to show that      .

    A. he has a sharp sense of hearing           B. he is ready to help others

    C. he is just one of the talented people       D. he knows little about car repairing

    26. The underlined part in the third paragraph can be best replaced by  “      ”.

    A. spend more than they can afford            B. do in their own way

    C. live in their own circle                        D. live within what they earn

    27. Why do talented people earn so little according to the author?

    A. They lack financial intelligence.     

    B. They don’t work hard enough. 

      C. They don’t make full use of their talents. 

      D. They have no specialized skills.

    28. The main purpose of the author is to tell us       .

    A. how young people can find a satisfactory job

    B. what schools should teach students

    C. how McDonald’s makes much money.

    D. why so many talented people are poor

       Papa, as a son of a dirt-poor farmer, left school early and went to work in a factory, for education was for the rich then. So, the world became his school. With great interest, he read everything he could lay his hands on, listened to the town elders and learned about the world beyond his tiny hometown. "There's so much to learn," he'd say. "Though we're born stupid, only the stupid remain that way. " He was determined that none of his children would be denied (拒绝) an education.

      Thus, Papa insisted that we learn at least one new thing each day. Though, as children, we thought this was crazy, it would never have occurred to us to deny Papa a request. And dinner time seemed perfect for sharing what we had learned. We would talk about the news of the day; no matter how insignificant(微不足道的), it was never taken lightly. Papa would listen carefully and was ready with some comment, always to the point.

      Then came the moment—the time to share the day's new learning.

      Papa, at the head of the table, would push back his chair and pour a glass of red wine, ready to listen.

      "Felice," he'd say, "tell me what you learned today. "

      "I learned that the population of Nepal is .... "

      Silence.

      Papa was thinking about what was said, as if the salvation(拯救)of the world would depend upon it. "The population of Nepal. Hmm. Well…" he'd say. "Get the map; let's see where Nepal is. " And the whole family went on a search for Nepal.

      This same experience was repeated until each family member had a turn. Dinner ended only after we had a clear understanding of at least half a dozen such facts.

      As children, we thought very little about these educational wonders. Our family, however, was growing together, sharing experiences and participating in one another's education. And by looking at us, listening to us, respecting our input, affirming(肯定) our value, giving us a sense of dignity(体面), Papa was unquestionably our most influential teacher.

      Later during my training as a future teacher, I studied with some of the most famous educators. They were imparting (传授) what Papa had known all along—the value of continual learning. His technique has served me well all my life. Not a single day has been wasted, though I can never tell when knowing the population of Nepal might prove useful.

    21. What do we know from the first paragraph?

      A. The author's father was born in a worker's family.

      B. Those born stupid could not change their life.

      C. The town elders wanted to learn about the world.

      D. The poor could hardly afford school education.

    22. The underlined word "it" in the second paragraph refers to "

      A. one new thing          B. a request                  C. the news                 D. some comment

    23. It can be learned from the passage that the author _______ .

      A. enjoyed talking about news

      B. knew very well about Nepal

      C. felt regret about those wasted days

      D . appreciated his father's educational technique

    24. What is the greatest value of "dinner time" to the author?

      A. Continual learning.                                       B. Showing talents.

      C. Family get-together.                                     D. Winning Papa's approval.

     When Lew Alcindor was 13, and obviously still growing, a group of schools began offering him scholarships. The Alcindor’s decided to send their only child to Power Memorial Academy, a small school on Manhattan’s west side. 

    At Power, Alcindor came under the control of coach Jack Donohue, a strict young man who already gained his fame as one of the best coaches in the city. Donohue brought Alcindor along slowly. As a first-year student, the boy was not able to do much but wave his long skinny arms and shoot a basket now and then. But by the second year, when he was 15 years old and nearly 7 feet tall, Alcindor was quick and skillful enough to make the high school All-American Team and to lead Power to an undefeated season. 

    From then on he simply got better. Some rival coaches used to take their teams quickly away from the floor before Power warmed up so that their players would not see him any sooner than they had to. Wearing size 16D shoes and sucking a lollipop (棒棒糖), Alcindor would loosen up by starting his leaping lay-ups (擦板球). Then he would casually shoot the ball with either hand, to the delight of the fans. 

    When reporters and photographers began to follow Alcindor closely, Donohue protected his boy firmly. He simply ordered Lew to talk to no member of the press, and this suited Lew fine. He was not comfortable talking to grown-ups, perhaps because he towered over them. Discouraged photographers began following him in secret as though he were an easily-frightened giraffe. Once after ducking into a subway to escape, Alcindor told a friend that it was all becoming like policemen and robbers. “People want you not for yourself,” Donohue warned him, “but because you’re a basketball player. Don’t forget that.”

    66. Which of the following best describes Donohue as a young coach?

    A. Serious, popular and slow.                  B. Tall, skillful and successful.

    C. Kind, powerful and undefeated.           D. Well-known, strict and experienced.

    67. It can be inferred from the passage many schools offered Alcindor scholarship because ________.

    A. he was young                                      B. he was hardworking

    C. he was tall for his age                          D. he was skillful at playing basketball

    68. Why did some rival coaches take their teams away from the floor before Power warmed up?

    A. Because their teams refused to play Power.

    B. Because their teams would laugh at Alcindor.

    C. Because their teams would lose courage.   

    D. Because their teams would lose interest.

    69. What does the last paragraph mainly discuss?

    A. How Donohue protected Alcindor from the press.

    B. How Alcindor disliked meeting reporters.

    C. Why the press followed Alcindor closely.

    D. Why the public wanted Alcindor badly.

    When I was in my third year at university, my roommates were American footballers, so I decided to join them. I remember seeing them in front of me wearing pads(防护垫), and thinking they were going to kill me. I got tackled(阻截)so hard that I was frightened. But then I realized it was just physical contact. I’ve been addicted since.

    The fundamental aim of the game is to score by running with the ball into, or receiving the ball inside the opposition’s end zone. Every player on the field has a set responsibility. I’m a running back. My job is using my speed, strength and skill to carry the ball and keep running until either I score or I get put down. And it does hurt.

    I’ve broken two fingers and hurt my shoulder, but the worst was when I trapped the ligaments(韧带)in the back of my leg. I had to take a year out. But none of that put me off-all I could think was how I was going to come back stronger. Besides training with the team, I now have my gym routine to get fitter, faster and stronger.

    Although people think American football is aggressive, there’s much more to it. Every team has its own playbook, outing everyone’s role in different scenes. My playbook was 73 pages long. Words can’t describe how it feels when it all comes together on the field.

    American football has changed my life for the better. I’ve learned time management, how to take responsibility for my actions, and how much I treasure being part of a team. Within the four lines of the field, it is physical. Emotions run high. If you’re on the opposing team, you are my enemy. But once the game is done, we’re like a big family.

    32. The author’s body parts were hurt EXCEPT __________.

       A. his arm           B. his shoulder        C. his leg          D. his finger

    33. What can we infer from the text?

       A. The author was very delighted when first playing

       B. The author has benefited more than suffering from the sport

       C. The author began to play at the beginning of his university life

       D. Playing American football is very popular among university students

    34. How does the author find his playing American football?

       A. Relaxing           B. Challenging         C. Boring          D. Rewarding

    35. The passage is manly about _______.

       A. the rules of playing American football

       B. how painful it is to play the sport

       C. how the sport has changed the author’s life

    When Shakespeare was 21, he went to London, a very interesting place, to try his fortune.

    There were the famous London Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral, and palaces and markets and long streets full of shops. Then, too, there were the daily crowds where could be seen people from all over the world.

Each one told its story to hims so plainly that, as before he had learned the secrets of the fileds and woods, so now he learned men and men’s interests that make up the great world.

    And he learned these lessons so well that when he came to write his plays, he made such use of them as no writer ever made before or since; for it is the use of this knowledge of the world, combined with his own genius, that makes Shakespeare the greatest dramatist that has ever lived.

    32. What was London like in Shakespeare’s eyes when he first went there?

    A. Dirty and small.                                   B. Strange and interesting.

          C. Infamous and terrible                           D. Familiar and modern

    A. Shakespeare got inspiration to write from his hometown, London.

    B. Shakespeare was eager to make friends with the noblemen in London.

    C. Shakespeare was good at observing and learning from the daily life.

    D. Shakespeare became the greatest dramatist owing to his own genious.

While I watched mouth open in surprise, mum took off her hat and coat and gave them to me to hold. She walked quietly to the small room by the lift and took out a wet mop (拖把).

       About a few years ago, a couple with three children moved into the apartment next door to meI never heard any noise from the children, but the parents were always shouting at them.

       We often met. I always spoke to them, but the only answer I ever got was a hello from a four-year-old girl. One day when I returned they were just coming back to their apartment and the little girl was holding the door in the hall open for the others. I remained in the car doing unnecessary things. The parents were telling her to hurry. I looked up and saw the little girl still holding the door open, waiting for me. I hurried as much as I could and thanked her. She was smiling from ear to ear.

        That afternoon I was at the K-Mart and I saw a white teddy bear. I thought of the little girl and said to myself, “I bet she would like it.” So I bought it for her. The next day there was a knock on the door and it was the little girl and her family. She was so proud of her bear and thanked me.

       Now when we meet in the hall we all speak in a friendly manner. Last night we had about 4 inches of snow. When I opened the outside door, there was my car with all the snow removed. The man next door was the only person I knew in the whole building, so when I saw him the next day, I asked him if he was the nice person that removed the snow. He said No. He wanted to, but his wife said she wanted to do it. Isn’t it amazing that the small kind act of a 4-year-old girl can change so many things for the better?

          “What you really feel is what you’ve achieved. If a piece of software gets out there and lots of people love itit lets them get their work done in better waysthat’s exciting,” he explained.

    Claude Monet was born on November 14, 1840, in Paris, but he spent most of his childhood in Le Havre, a city of southern France. By the time he was fifteen Monet had become popular as a caricaturist(漫画家). Through an exhibition of his drawings at a local frame shop in 1858, Monet met the French landscape painter Eugene Louis Boudin, who introduced Monet to outdoor painting, an activity that soon became his life’s work.

    By 1859 Monet had devoted himself to a career as an artist and began to spend as much time in Pairs as possible. During the 1860s he met Edouard Manet. With other ambitious French painters, they formed the impressionist school.

    Working outside, Monet painted simple landscapes and he began to have some success. As his style developed, however, Monet broke one traditional artistic convention(常规)after another. His experiments with bright color became more and more daring, and he seemed to cut himself off from the possibility of a successful career as a conventional painter supported by the art establishment.

    In 1874 Monet and his friends decided to organize their own exhibition. They called themselves independents, but the press soon labeled them impressionists because one of Monet’s paintings had borne the title Impression: Sunrise. Then the name stuck.

    By the mid-1880s , Monet , generally regarded as the leader of the impressionist school, had achieved recognition and financial security. In 1890 he was able to buy a house in the village of Giverny, not far from Paris, and there he began to build a water gardena water lily pond with a Japanese bridge. Beginning in 1906, paintings of the pond and the water lilies occupied his mind for the rest of his life. His famous series Water Lilies, painted between 1990 and 1926, clearly shows the artist’s strong interest in color and produces a remarkable(不寻常的)visual effect. Despite failing eyesight, Monet continued to paint almost up to the time of his death, on December 5,1926, at Giverny.

    32. We know from the passage that Monet _________ .   

    A. spend most of his childhood in Paris

    B. devoted his whole life to painting people

    C. mainly relied on traditional painting skills

    D. was greatly influenced by Boudin

    33. Which of the following is TRUE about impressionists?

    A. They formed an influential artistic school in the 1850s.

    B. They got the name partly because of a painting of Monet’s.

    C. They are conventional painters.

    D. They are fond of using dark color.

    34. What’s the right order of the events related to Monet?

    a. Monet bought a house in the village of Giverny.

    b. Monet got to know Edouard Manet.

    c. Monet became the leader of the impressionist school.

    d. Monet began to paint his pond and water lilies.

    A. abdc   B. cbda   C.dbac   D.bcad

    35. It can be learned from the last paragraph that Monet_________ .  

    A. spent the rest of his life in Le Havre

    B. changed his painting style many times

    C. continued to paint when he became old

    D. was unknown until many years after his death
