    Alexis, 17, sat quietly in the passenger seat of her dad's car. She let her eyes lazily scan the landscape for wildlife. Then a deer came into view about 200 yards in front of them. "Dad, there's a deer there!" Alexis said. It was a male deer with sharp antlers () on each side of its head.

    As the car moved closer, Alexissaw that the deer's head was bent toward the ground. Then she heard a scream and saw an arm fly up near the deer's head. Alexis realized the deer was attacking a woman.Sue, a 44-year-old mother, had been out for her morning run. The deer followed her and edged closer. "I knew I was in trouble," Sue says. She went to pick up a stick for self-defense, and the deer charged. It lifted her with its antlers and threw her into the air. Sue could feel blood flew down her leg.Within seconds, the deer had pushed her off the road.

    When Alexis and her father pulled up, the deer was throwing Sue like a doll. Alexis looked into the woman's terrified eyes,and before her father had even stopped the car, the teenager jumped quickly out of the car and ran toward the deer. "I was kicking it to get its attention," she says. Then her father,who had followed his daughter, pushed the deer away from the women.

    Alexis helped Sue into the car,and then applied a piece of cloth to Sue's injured leg. "We're going to get you to a hospital," Alexis said. Then she heard her father shout loudly. He had been knocked to the ground. Alexis took hold of a hammer from the car and ran to where her father lay on his back. She beat the deer's head and neck, but the blows didn't scareit away. "I was losing faith," she says. "A couple more strikes, Alexis," said her father. "You can do it."

    Turning the hammer around, Alexis closed her eyes and beat the deer's neck with all her strength. When she opened her eyes, the deer was running away.

    Alexis got in the driver's seat and sped toward the nearest hospital. After Sue was treated, she tearfully thanked her rescuers. "You expect a teenage girl to get on the phone and call for help," she says, "not to beat up a deer."

    At thirteen, I was diagnosed(诊断)with kind of attention disorder(紊乱). It made school 

    difficult for me. When everyone else in the class was focusing on tasks, I could not. 

    In my first literature class, Mrs. Smith asked us to read a story and then write on it, all

     within 45 minutes. I raised my hand right away and said, “Mrs. Smith, you see, the doctor

     said I have attention problems. I might not be able to do it.”

    She glanced(匆匆一瞥) down at me through her glasses, “you are no different from your 

    classmates, young man.”I tried, but I didn’t finish the reading when the bell rang. I had to 

    take it home. 

    In the quietness of my bedroom, the story suddenly all became clear to me. It was about a blind person, Louis Braille. He lived in a time when the blind couldn’t get much education. But Louis didn’t give up. Instead, he invented a reading system of raised dots(点), which

     opened up a whole new world of knowledge to the blind. 

    Wasn’t I the“blind” in my class, being made to learn like the “sighted” students? My 

    thoughts spilled out(突然涌出) and my pen started to dance. I completed the task within 40 

    minutes.Indeed, I was no different from others; I just needed a quieter place. If Louis could 

    find his way out of his problems, why should I ever give up? 

       I didn’t expect anything when I handed in my paper to Mrs. Smith, so it was quite a 

    surprise when it came back to me the next day---- with an “A” on it. At the bottom of 

    the paper were these words:“ See what you can do when you keep trying?” 

    13.The author didn’t finish the reading in class because          .

    A. He was new to the class

    B. He was tried of literature

    B. He had an attention disorder.

    D. He wanted to take the task home

    14.What do we know about Louis Braille from the passage? 

    A. He had good sight. 

    B. He made a great invention. 

    C. He gave up reading.

    D. He learned a lot from school.

     15.What was Mrs. Smith’s attitude to the author at the end of the story? 

    A. Angry      B. Impatient     C. Sympathetic    D. Encouraging

    Jessica Westervelt, a Spanish teacher at Bethlehem High School in New York, created an activity called “House Hunters”, which was inspired by the popular television show “House Hunters International’’, for her Spanish class about four years ago.

    Similar to the show, students work in groups, pretending to be real house agents, and look for three houses in Spanish-speaking countries. She uses the activity to teach vocabulary related to the home, chores, travel and vacation. She created the exercise because she wanted to incorporate her students’ interests into the curriculum (课程). At the time, a group of her students were big fans of the show.

    The students look for a home for Westervelt to buy to live in, or rent for vacation. She tells them what she is looking for in a home and gives them a budget. Students work in groups of three, and each group is responsible for finding one house in a Spanish-speaking country that fits the requirements.

    The groups usually make a brochure describing the houses they find. Each group presents their findings to the class, while the other students take notes. The entire activity is done in Spanish, so students get to practice their writing, listening and conversation skills. They also get some cultural education when researching homes in Spanish-speaking countries. Westervelt says that students planning to take the class look forward to her project.

    Westervelt says, “I think any time that you can find a way to link into something that they are interested in outside of school, it makes it more realistic for them and it makes that activity much more enjoyable for them.”

    29. How did Westervelt come up with the idea of the activity?

    A. She got it from a TV program.                                        B. She was inspired by her students.

    C. She learned it from a house agent.                                D. She was taught that in high school.

    30. Which of the following can replace the underlined word “incorporate” in Paragraph 2?

    A. change                          B. absorb                                  C. force                              D. persuade

    31. What are the students supposed to do with the houses they find?

    A. Live in the houses for a while.

    B. Rent the houses for their vacation.

    C. Write an introduction to the houses.

    D. Choose and buy one for their teacher.

    32. What do Westervelt’s words in the last paragraph mean?

    A. Most school activities are not enjoyable.

    B. Students should be realistic about study.

    C. Out-of-school activities are very important.

    D. Learning should be combined with interest.

    I opened my door to two little girls. I had met Alyssa, six, two weeks before. Since then, she’d waved to me every time she passed my house.

    “Hello. Grandma Bonnie!” Alyssa said. “This is my little sister, Ariana. She’s three.” To her very nervous sister, “It’s OK, honey. You’ll like her.” The three-year o held a “bouquet” (花束) in one hand, and the other gripped (紧握) a tiny notebook and a huge broken crayon. “Go on,” her big sister urged, “tell her.”

    Ariana looked at me seriously. “I want to help raise money for my preschool,” she said, holding out her flowers. “So I’m selling these for one dollar a bunch.”

    I had a hard time hiding my smile. The bouquet consisted of seven oxalis (酢浆草) flowers. Oxalis is a weed almost impossible to get rid of. Obviously Ariana had pulled these flowers out from her own yard or a neighbor’s.

    Her big sister smiled, “Aren’t they lovely, Grandma Bonnie? And they only cost a dollar for the whole bunch. It’s all for Ariana’s preschool.” The girls, plan did amuse me. “All right,” I agreed, “one dollar coming up.”

    Alyssa put the bill in her sister’s skirt pocket. Then Ariana handed me my purchase. “Uh,” I suggested, “why don’t you just keep the flowers and the money? Then you could sell the flowers to someone else.” Both girls stared at me, horrified. “Oh, no,” Ariana cried. “We picked them just for you. See, they’re beautiful!”

    And so they were. A week later, the flowers were twice as many as when my little neighbor handed them to me. What a bargain!

    I had called these tiny plants “weeds”disgusting, worthless things with no right to exist. But in their innocent hearts, those two little girls saw them as a precious creation to treasure and share out of loving hearts to brighten the day of a lonely old “Grandma”.

    25. Those two little girls paid a visit to the author to       .

    A. say hello to their new neighbor

    B. introduce the little sister to her

    C. bring her some beautiful flowers

    D. collect money for a special purpose

    A. Refuse the girls’ request directly.

    B. Pay one dollar for the whole bunch.

    C. Put the bill into the little girl’s pocket.

    D. Donate money without accepting flowers.

    27. How did the author feel when seeing those tiny plants a week later?

    A. Grateful.                                                                  B. Disgusted.

    C. Fortunate.                                                                      D. Desperate.

    28. What is the best title for the text?

    A. Sold a Bunch of Flowers                                                 B. Picked Flowers Just for You

    C. Raised Money for Preschool                                          D. Delighted an Old Grandma

       “Let’s have a journey. Why not fly out and meet me, Dad?” I say one day.

    My father had just retired after 27 years as a manager for IBM. His job filled his day, his thoughts, and his life. While he woke up and took a warm shower, I screamed under a freezing waterfall in Peru. While he tied a tie and put on the same Swiss watch, I rowed a boat across Lake of the Ozarks.

    My father sees me drifting aimlessly, nothing to show for my 33 years but a passport full of funny stamps. He wants me to settle down, but now I want him to find an adventure.

    He agrees to travel with me through the national parks. We meet four weeks later in Rapid City.

    “What's our first stop” asks my father.

    “What time is it

    “Still don't have a watch

    Less than an hour away is Mount Rushmore. As he stares up at the four Presidents carved in granite(花岗岩), his mouth and eyes open slowly, like those of a little boy.

    “Unbelievable,” he says. “How was this done

    A film in the information center shows sculptor Gutzon Borglum devoted 14 years to the sculpture and then left the final touches to his son.

    We stare up and I ask myself, “Would I ever devote my life to anything

    No directions, no goals. I always used to hear those words in my father's voice. Now I hear them in my own.

    The next day we’re at Yellowstone National Park, where we have a picnic.

    “Did you ever travel with your dad” I ask.

    “Only once,” he says. “I never spoke much with my father. We loved each other — but never said it. Whatever he could give me, he gave.”

    That last sentence — it’s probably the same thing I’d say about my father. And what I’d want my child to say about me.

    In Glacier National Park, my father says, “I've never seen water so blue.” I have, in several places of the world. I can keep traveling, I realize — and maybe a regular job won't be as dull as I feared.

    Weeks after our trip, I call my father.

    “The photos from the trip are wonderful,” he says. “We've got to take another trip like that sometime.”

    I tell him I've decided to settle down, and I'm wearing a watch.

    When I came to Cincinnati as an au pair (家庭打工留学生), a lot of things there were different from what I knew. My host family lived in a huge house I could only describe as a "castle"In Germany I had lived in a small apartment together with my mom. Soon I found out that the "castle" was actually rather small in our neighborhood.

    Everybody there was very friendly and polite. They greeted you when they were walking by at least 3 feet away from you. They must not have seen a German au pair before, for most people I met asked me all kinds of questions about Germany. I enjoyed answering their various strange questions. I made a lot of friends and I started to hang out with them.

     Of course, there were a number of new things, and it took me the whole year to find them all out. I never got homesick. Perhaps it was because I did not have too many negative experiences and felt loved and welcomed there.

    However, I had undergone some painful experience back in Germany. I was frustrated by the way people would run me over and not even say "Sorry."  Taking up my studies at the TU-Dresden, I felt lonely. Everybody here seemed to be withdrawn(离群的) and I missed everything I had in Cincinnati. Germany was so "cold". I found it so much harder to make new friends. After six months I got a roommate and only two good friends. I also flew back to Cincinnati several times for long periods. I felt that without those visits I was not able to make it.

    Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) is one of the most original and influential figures in the history of photography.His photographs helped establish photojournalism as an art form.

    Henri's family was wealthy-his father made a fortune as a textile manufacturer—but Henri later joked that due to his parents' economical ways,it often seemed as though his family was poor.

    Educated in Paris,Henri developed an early love for literature and arts.As a teenager,Henri was against his parents' formal ways of education.In his early adulthood,he fell in love with several appetites,but it was art that remained at the center of his life.

    Henri traveled to Africa in 1931 to hunt antelope and boar.And Africa fueled another interest in him: photography.He then wandered around the world with his camera,using a handheld camera to catch images from fleeting moments of everyday life.

    Not long after World War Ⅱ,Henri traveled east,spending considerable time in India,where he met and photographed Gandhi shortly before he was killed in 1948.Henri's work to document Gandhi's death and its immediate effect on the country became one of Life Magazine's most prized photo essays.

    Henri's approach to photography remained much the same throughout his life.He made clear his dislike of images that had been improved by artificial light,darkroom effects,and even cutting.The naturalist in Henri believed that all editing should be done when the photo is taken.In 1952,his first book,The Decisive Moment,a rich collection of his work spanning two decades,was published."There is nothing in this world that does not have a decisive moment,"he said.

    In 1968,he began to turn away from photography and returned to his passion for drawing and painting.

    4. Which of the following is true about Henri's photography career?

    A. He developed a passion for photography when traveling to Africa.

    B. He quit photography on publishing The Decisive Moment.

    C. He documented Gandhi's everyday life.

    D. He devoted all his life to photography.

    5. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined word in paragraph 2?

    A. Costly.    B. Generous.

    C. Financial.    D. Saving.

    6. What is special about Henri's approach to photography?

    A. He only shot photos at decisive moments.

    B. He preferred to edit his images in his darkroom.

    C. His most photos described things in their natural ways.

    D. He tried different ways and settled on being a naturalist.

    Henry was an office worker in a big city. He worked very hard and enjoyed traveling in his holidays.

    He usually went to the seaside, but one year he saw an advertisement in a newspaper. “Enjoy country life. Spend a few weeks at West Hill Farm. Good food. Fresh air. Horse riding. Walking. Fishing. Cheap and interesting.”

    “Lucky you!”

    “You don’t understand,” Henry said. “on the third day a pig died and we had roast pork for dinner.”

    Clara Barton, born on Christmas in 1821, is widely known as one of the most honored women in American history. She began teaching school when most teachers were men at that time. Later, she became one of the first

    women ever to be employed by the government.

    Her career in helping the sick began when her brother David became her first patient. He fell down from the roof of a house when Clara was just 11 years old. She stayed by his side and looked after him for three years, learning how to give him all his medicines.

    When the Civil War began in 1861, she immediately recognized that the poorly equipped soldiers needed help. Instead of waiting for others to step in, Clara collected necessary things on her own, asked the public for donations and learned how to store and distribute them to soldiers. She also read to the soldiers and wrote letters for them.

    After the Battle of Cedar Mountain in northern Virginia in 1862, Clara arrived at a field hospital at midnight with a vehicle full of supplies. A doctor named Paul Smith at that hospital would later write, “I thought heaven had sent out an angel that night — her assistance arrived at exactly the right time.”

    In 1869, Clara went to Europe and learned about the International Committee of the Red Cross. Upon her return to the United States, she successfully founded the American Red Cross. She led the organization for the next 23 years. Her last field mission (使命) as president of the American Red Cross was to help the victims of the 1900 Galveston hurricane. She did not retire (退休) from the American Red Cross until she was 83. True to her nature, Clara always went to where the need was the greatest.

    Today, the American Red Cross continues the mission Clara started more than 100 years ago. With the help of thousands of volunteers, the American Red Cross provides relief to victims of disasters, as well as helps people prevent, prepare for and respond to all sorts of emergencies.

    32We can learn from Paragraph 2 that Clara Barton was _____.

    A. honest            B. caring       C. talented         D. modest

    33After the Civil War broke out, Clara Barton _____.

    A. joined the army and fought bravely          B. went to Europe for further study

    C. continued to work as a teacher              D. did a lot to help soldiers

    34Seeing Clara Barton’s arrival, Dr. Smith must have felt _____.

    A. excited and grateful                      B. proud and joyful

    C. shy and nervous                         D. sad and sorry

    35What is mainly described in Paragraph 5?

    A. The aim of the American Red Cross.       B. The importance of voluntary donations.

    C. Clara Barton and the American Red Cross.  D. Clara Barton’s contribution to the Civil War.

    There was once a captain who loved money so much that he cheated his sailors at the end of every voyage and took their wages.

     On the last day of one voyage, the ship was in a small port. It was winter time, and the sea was very cold, so the captain said to his sailors, “If one of you stays in the water during the whole night, I will give him my ship. But if he comes out before the sun appears, I shall get his wages.”

      The sailors had heard about the captain’s cheating, so they didn’t trust him. But then one of them, who thought that he was cleverer than the captain, said that he would do it. He got into the water, and, though it was very cold, he stayed in it. When it was nearly morning, some fishermen lit a fire on the shore about half a mile away.

     “You are cheating,” the captain said to the sailor. “The fire’s warming you.”

     “But it’s half a mile away! ”said the sailor.

     “A fire’s fire,” answered the captain. “I have won.”

     The sailor came out of the water, and said, “Perhaps you think that you are clever because you have won my wages, but you can’t cook a chicken.”

     “I can, ”answered the captain.

     “If you cook this chicken,” said the sailor, “I shall work for you without wages for seven years, but if you can’t, you will give me your ship.”

     The captain agreed, took the chicken and said, “Where’s the fire?”

     “There it is,” answered the sailor. “On the shore.”

     “But it’s half a mile away,” said the captain angrily.

    “ ‘A fire’s fire’ you said,” answered the sailor. “If it is enough to warm me in the water, it is enough to cook your chicken.”

    26.The captain got the sailors’ wages ________.

    Twelve years ago, Rachel Miller was lost when it came to her son John. The 7-year-old was seriously disabled because of his autism(自闭症).  Unable to speak, he withdrew from people at school and, worse, from his family.

    In March 2003, Miller was introduced to Jeff Hancock, a one-on-one therapist(治疗师) for people with autism. Hancock was hired to be John's companion. The two would go people-watching at the mall on the weekend. Hancock chatted throughout their trips, even though John couldn't talk back.

    Their relationship developed when Hancock introduced John to the Special Olympics. Whenever John was running or being active, he was smiling.

    When John turned 12, Hancock introduced him to track at the Special Olympics. For the first three years, the pair just observed the sport by watching practices and events. Hancock worked daily with John, showing him everything, including where to sit, stand and walk, so he would understand the flow of the events.

    Eventually, the lessons clicked, and John was off doing 50-meter sprints. But as John got older, he got stronger and faster. At 16, he was jumping hurdles and doing 800-meter races. Miller started seeing her son as a serious athlete.

    In May 2014, John's training brought him to the Special Olympics State Summer Games in Orlando. The 18-year-old was competing in the 800 meters and the 110-meter hurdles.

    As the 800 was setting up, Miller remembered, she pressed her face against the fence, anxiously waiting for John to compete. But as soon as the race started, all Miller saw was an athlete, her athlete.

    "I just wanted to see the best performance. It seemed much more significant than whether he would ever speak or respond to me," she said.

    John ended up winning the gold medal for the 800. Sports completely changed John, and Miller said that is because of Hancock."A person with a disability can feel hopeless and isolated, and I think that can happen to parents, too. "

    29.  The first paragraph mainly tells us

    A. how Rachel Miller felt 12 years ago

    B. how serious John's autism was

    C. John wasn't good at communication

    D. when John became seriously disabled

    30.  Miller considered John to be a serious athlete      .

    A. in 2011       B. in 2012      C. in 2013      D. in 2014

    31. When Miller saw John's performance in the 800, she felt         .

    A. curious       B. amazed       C. delighted        D. upset

    32. The passage is mainly carried out        .

    A. by giving examples            B. in a sad tone

    C. in space order                D. in time order

    Once when I was facing a decision that involved high risk, I went to a friend. He looked at me for a moment, and then wrote a sentence containing the best advice I’ve ever had: Be bold and brave — and mighty forces will come to your aid.

    Those words made me see clearly that when I had fallen short in the past, it was seldom because I had tried and failed. It was usually because I had let fear of failure stop me from trying at all. On the other hand, whenever I had plunged into deep water, forced by courage or circumstance, I had always been able to swim until I got my feet on the ground again.

    Boldness means a decision to bite off more than you can eat. And there is nothing mysterious about the mighty forces. They are potential powers we possess: energy, skill, sound judgment, creative ideas — even physical strength greater than most of us realize.

    Admittedly, those mighty forces are spiritual ones. But they are more important than physical ones. A college classmate of mine, Tim, was an excellent football player, even though he weighed much less than the average player. “In one game I suddenly found myself confronting a huge player, who had nothing but me between him and our goal line,” said Tim. “I was so frightened that I closed my eyes and desperately threw myself at that guy like a bullet — and stopped him cold.”

    Boldness — a willingness to extend yourself to the extreme—is not one that can be acquired overnight. But it can be taught to children and developed in adults. Confidence builds up. Surely, there will be setbacks (挫折) and disappointments in life; boldness in itself is no guarantee of success. But the person who tries to do something and fails is a lot better off than the person who tries to do nothing and succeeds.

    So, always try to live a little bit beyond your abilities—and you’ll find your abilities are greater than you ever dreamed.

    4. Why was the author sometimes unable to reach his goal in the past?

    A. He faced huge risks.

    B. He lacked mighty forces.

    C. Fear prevented him from trying.

    D. Failure blocked his way to success.

    5. What is the implied meaning of the underlined part?

    A. Swallow more than you can digest.

    B. Act slightly above your abilities.

    C. Develop more mysterious powers.

    D. Learn to make creative decisions.

    6. What can be learned from Paragraph 5?

    A. Confidence grows more rapidly in adults.

    B. Trying without success is meaningless.

    C. Repeated failure creates a better life.

    D. Boldness can be gained little by little.

    7. What is the author’s purpose in writing this passage?

    A. To encourage people to be courageous.

    B. To advise people to build up physical power.

    C. To tell people the ways to guarantee success.

    D. To recommend people to develop more abilities.

    Norah had a cottage on a cliff above a big bay. In winter it could be very nasty because of strong winds and sea spray. In fact, when a gale was blowing, Norah and her husband got used to sleeping in a small room downstairs, because their bedroom upstairs, which faced the gales, had a very big window, and they were afraid that an extra violent gust might break it and blow pieces of broken glass over them.

    Also, the salt spray from the sea put an end to many of the colourful plants Norah planted in her garden. She tried putting up a fence to protect them, but the wind just hit it, went up over the top and then down the other side, so in the end she filled the garden with trees and bushes that liked salt.

    But most of the summer Norah enjoyed her cottage and garden very much. At weekends she could sit out of doors in the sun, looking at the beautiful view, with interesting ships and boats passing by, and she could very easily cycle down to the sea for a swim.

    Now, Norah and her husband had plenty of friends and relations. In the summer lots of them used to come to enjoy the beautiful place, and in the end it really became quite annoying for Norah and her husband. When they were at home, they found friends and relations arriving, expecting to be given unlimited drinks and meals, and to sit in the sun for hours, talking as if Norah and her husband had nothing else to do but entertain and listen to them.

    This went on for several years. Norah did not wish to appear rude by refusing to let her friends and relations in, but on the other hand, she was getting tired every summer.Then one day Norah was complaining about this to her hairdresser while she was doing her hair. “You’re disturbed by too many uninvited guests, are you?” said the hairdresser. “Why don’t you try my way of escaping?”

    “What’s that?” asked Norah.

    “Well,” the hairdresser answered, “when the bell rings, I put on my coat and take my shopping bag. If it’s someone I don’t want to see, I say innocently,’ I’m sorry, but I’ve got to go out.’ But...”

    12. The underlined word “cycle” can be replaced by_______________.

    A. ride by bike    B. drive

    C. walk    D. go by ship

    13. We can infer that________________.

    A. a lot of friends came to visit them in winter

    B. few friends came to visit them in winter

    C. friends came to visit them only for drinks and meals

    D. Norah was a good cook

    14. Which of the following is the best title ?

    A. A Good Place of Enjoying the Sea

    B. A Warm-hearted Couple

    C. A Clever Way of Escaping

    D. A Visit to Norah

    15. What is the hairdresser likely to continue to say in the end?

    A. If I am tired, I say, “Sorry, can you come next time?”

    B. If it’s someone I like to see, I say, “How lucky! I’ve just come in!”

    C. If it’s someone I like to see, I say, “How happy to see you! I was going shopping, but now I’ve changed my mind.”

    D. If it is fine that day, I say, “I’m tired of this, but I’ll show you around the place, anyhow.”

    My friend, Peg, and I were seeking evidence that there were people who were treating our soil, our waters, our air with the love and respect they deserved.  And we found it.

    One day we saw a busload of school children on an outing. The bus had stopped at a hamburger stand where we were having a rest, and half-a-hundred children poured out. Busloads of children, of course, were not new, and I hardly gave them more than a glance until I realized what they were doing.  Chatting and laughing, the children were picking up as much waste as they could carry from around the stand and its parking area. They took the waste to their bus, where several bags had been brought out for the waste.

    Within five minutes, before our astonished eyes, that parking lot had been picked clean.  Impressed, I walked over to their teacher. "I'm interested," I began. "In fact, I'm surprised at how those kids worked this place over. Is this some kind of environment protection class?"

    "You'd never guess it," he said, "but we're a history class. "

    "A history class?"

    "That's right. We're on our way from Boston to visit Fort(城堡) Ticonderoga. Before the trip, one of the things we tried to find out was how the Ticonderoga countryside looked back in old days," he said. "In fact, we made a little table display of the scene, using toy buildings and toy trees. When one kid jokingly suggested we ought to put a few bottles and cans around to make it look real, the others blamed him. But the boy argued that he bet Ticonderoga would look like that today. Besides, if they thought it was so funny, were they prepared to clean it up if he was right? The class decided, however, that the entire fort might be too big a task to do. But they agreed to clean up any roadside area where they stopped on their way to the fort. And so that's what they did!"

    5. How did the author feel when he understood what the kids were doing?

    A. Amazed.

    B. Bored.

    C. Disappointed.

    My first full-time job after high school was selling vacation packages(旅行产品) via the telephone for a well-known company. One day, I was put throughto a man who sounded a bit out of breath. I started with my normal pitch (音高), expecting to hear the normal reply —"I don’t want any."

    Instead, he spoke in a faint, weak voice and told me how he wished to take a vacation I was offering, but he couldn’t because he was dying of illness. He explained how he was lacking in oxygen then, and it took almost all his energy to answer the call. He asked if I smoked, which I did, and begged me to stop. He told me smoking was what was killing him. He told me to spend every day with my loved ones, and tell them how much I love them. At this point, I couldn’t control myself. We ended the call, but I held on my phone to prevent another call coming in so I could collect myself.

    I wrote down his name and address, and sent him a card appreciating(感谢)his advice and praying for him and his family. Shortly after, I received a letter from Frank, along with a picture of him and his wife. We continued to write back and forth over the next few months, and became very fond of each other. He was old enough to be my grandfather, and in many ways, I felt as if he was.

    About a year later I received a letter from his wife. When I started to read, tears came to my eyes. She told me how Frank’s battle with the disease had finally come to an end, and he passed away shortly before the Christmas. She wanted to thank me for the letters to Frank, and explained how Frank touched(感动) many lives over the years. At his funeral, to show just that, they read the 1st letter I had written to Frank to show how he affected a 19-year-old boy he’d never met.
