       I wondered if anyone had experienced such an unexpected trip as I had.

        The day of my holiday arrived, but I wasn’t looking forward to it. I had little money and had only been able to afford to stay with my Aunt Rosa in Spain. So, I wasn’t really excited as I knew exactly what it was going to be like: lots of noisy cousins, and Aunt Rosa begging me to take her for a ride.

        After I had checked in, I made my way slowly to the departure gate. As I was waiting to board the plane, I kept thinking about my ideal holiday destination: JamaSica, with its long, sandy beaches and crystal clear water.

        As soon as the plane took off, I fell fast asleep and only woke to the sound of the announcement: “Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seat belts, as we will shortly be landing in Kingston.” I froze in my seat. Was I dreaming? Kingston? Jamaica? I had boarded the wrong plane! 

        Immediately after the plane landed, I explained the situation to the authorities. It seems there were also three other passengers heading for Spain. Apparently it had been the airline’s fault, since the flight numbers for Spain and Jamaica were exactly the same! Therefore, with no flight back to London for a week, the airline had no choice but to pay for our stay.

        So there I was,lying on the beach, enjoying the music and the marvelous food of Jamaica! As for Aunt Rosa, I suppose she just had to live without me!

    21. Why did the writer choose to spend her holiday with her aunt in Spain?

    A. She missed her cousins very much.             

    B. She could hardly afford any better trip.

    C. Her aunt begged her to go there.  

    D. Spain was her ideal destination.

    22. In the text, the writer ended up _________.

    A. flying to London immediately               

    B. heading for Spain from Jamaica

    C. enjoying a free beach holiday         

    D. complaining to the authorities 

    23. Which of the following might be the best title of the text?

    A. A Well-Planned Trip                             B. A Terrible Adventure

    C. A Nice Dream                                             D. A Lucky Mistake

    In 1990,22-year-old Christopher McCandless gave up his career plansleft behind everyone he knewdonated all his savings to charityand went off on an adventurehiking his way through America to Alaska

        Of course,this is an unusual story most college graduates would not do so. Howeverstudies show that in teenage years, people are more likely to try out new experiences.For exampleinstead of working his way up the same organization like his grandfather dida 15-year-old may dream about becoming a travelleronly to find in his early 20s that this attraction of new places is fading and change is less attractive

        The reason why people become less keen to change as they get older may be that people

    generally have similar life patterns and demandsMost people aim to find a job and a partner. As they get olderthey may have young children and elderly family members to look after. These responsibilities cannot be achieved without some degree of steadinesswhich means that new experiences and ideas may not have a place in the person’s lifeNew experiences may bring excitement as well as insecurity,and so most people prefer to stay with the familiar.

        Howevernot every individual is the same. A child may want to play a different game every day and get fed up if nothing changes at the kindergartenAnother may play with the same children and toys on every visit. Young children who avoid new experiences will grow up to be more traditional than others. Psychologist argue that those who have more open personalities as children are more open than others might be when they are older and that young men have a greater interest in novelty than womenalthough as they agethis desire for new experiences fades more quickly than it does in women

    32. The first paragraph serves as a(n     

       A . introduction                    Bexplanation            C. comment                        D. background

    33. What does the author think is the key factor that prevents people trying out new   

       experiences?

       A. Age                             B. Partner                 C. Responsibility       D. Education

    34. The underlined phrase“interest in novelty”most probably means       

       A. independence               B. curiosity                C. security                       D.excitement

    35. According to the passage, we can infer that_______.

       A . a child who likes different games may not like to change after growing up

       B . a teenager is not interested in a new start before graduation

       C . women are more likely to try new things than men of the same age

                                                            Investing in yourself

    Figuring out how to invest your money can be a difficult task. This is something that you will want to learn how to do.

     36  Things that will improve your knowledge, skills or health are all great investments. However, before you start, you need to be clear about what you will gain out of doing all of these things.

       You may think investing in yourself means investing in your education. 37 . There are some other things you can do as well as buying a gym membership or learning a new skill.

       So what are some specific things you can do?  38 . Reading books can really expand your mind and allow you to learn different skills and gain knowledge. I’m talking about the books where you will actually learn a new skill, not fiction books.

       You can also take courses and attend seminars. These programs are taught by people with a high level of knowledge or skill.  39 . Only in this way can you avoid being fooled by some sales presentation.

       Moreover, investing in yourself is a safe way to keep your money. Although a savings account is seen as the most secure investment, that isn’t 100% safe. Even if you never experience your bank closing down, the return is little when inflation(通货膨胀) is taken into consideration.  40 . But over time, they will show up in terms of your happiness level as well as your level of success.

    A. This is just one way.

    B. The benefits will stay with you.

    C. If you aren’t a reader, you should start with that.

    D. The more you do this, the more valuable you will be.

    E. Of course, you need to do some research before investing.

    F. The best way to invest your money is to invest it in yourself.

    G. When you invest in yourself, you may not see gains right away.
