    Do you want to travel to cool places, meet foreigners, and learn a foreign language? If you want, consider a study-abroad program. No matter what country you live in, you can learn world trade in Japan, study art in France, or take dancing lessons in Ghana.

    Besides the excitement of travel, one reason to study abroad is that you will experience new customs, holidays, food, art and music. Andrew was a student who once studied in France. He said, “I learned French and now I can speak French fluently. When I was in France, I learned about cultures, people and myself. I learned a lot from the stand of a native member of the country, not from a tourist’s stand.”

    Another reason for studying abroad is that you’ll gain self-confidence. Christina studied in Caracas, Venezuela, a city of 10 million people. The city is different from her hometown. Christina said she learned how to express herself in another language. That made her more confident.

    Living away from home can also help you adjust in the transition to college and adulthood. Matthew said he returned from studying in Australia with confidence and practical knowledge. “After studying abroad in high school, I found the transition to college to be easy. Being 560 miles from home didn’t seem particularly daunting(使人畏缩的) after having lived thousands of miles away.”

    Trapped under ruins after the Iran earthquake, Dan Woolley believed he was going to die. But rather than giving up, the film-maker managed to look up ways to treat his injuries on his iPhone beneath the earth. He also wrote a moving diary for his family, allowing them to read his last messages of love and comforting them after his death. Instead, he was pulled from the ruins after a week--- and would soon meet his family.

    Mr. Woolley, from Colorado Springs, America, had raveled to Iran with his colleague David Hames. Both had been working for Charity Compassion International. He was in the hotel when the earthquake struck. Buried under tons of ruins, the film-maker downloaded a first aid application to his iPhone. He used the instructions from the app to treat the serious bleeding. He used his shirt to tie off the injury on his leg and a sock to bandage the back of his head. The app advised him not to go to sleep if he felt sleepy. Mr. Woolley set his phone alarm to go off every 20 minutes to keep him awake.

    Mr Woolley used a small black notebook to write messages to his family, including his son and wife. He had thought his relatives would read them after he was dead.

    “ I was in a big accident. Don’t be upset at God,” he wrote. “ I’m still praying that God will get me out, but he may not. But he will always take care of you.”

    Mr Woolley was eventually rescued by a French rescue team. After being flown to Miami for surgery, he said, “I cried. At that time I wanted to use that time to do everything I could for my family. I always wanted to survive, but I knew that was something that I couldn’t control.”

    New technology really played a huge part in our life.

    c. He treated the injuries properly.

    d. He followed instructions to treat the bleeding.

    6. Which of the following statements is TRUE?

    A. Woolley was confident that he would survive.

    B. Woolley was making a film when the earthquake broke out.

    C. Woolley is now recovering in an Iran hospital.

    D. Woolley tried to stay conscious under the ruins.

    7. What’s the best title for the text?

    The game of rugby football was played at Rugby School between 1750 and 1859, but players were not allowed to run with it in their hands towards the other side’s goal. With no limit to the number of players per side, hundreds would participate in it, sometimes resulting in major injuries. The innovation(创新) of running with the ball was introduced between 1859 and 1865. The popular myth of the sport’s origin states that Rugby pupil William Webb Ellis broke the local rules by running forward with the ball in his hands in 1823. Rugby School produced the first written rules for their version of the sport in 1845.

    In the result that the teams still tied at the end of the match, a drop goal shootout was held. The selected kickers of the two teams would have one shot at the goal each and would take turns shooting at the goal until one of the kickers missed.

    In England, rugby union is widely regarded as an “establishment” sport, played mostly by members of the upper and middle classes. For example, many students at private schools and grammar schools play in rugby union. In France, rugby is also widely played and has a strong tradition in the Basque people along the border regions between Spain and France. The game is very popular in South Africa among both blacks and whites, having been introduced by English-speaking settlers in the 19th century. British colonists also brought the game with them to Australia and New Zealand, where the game is widely played. It has spread then to much of Polynesia, having particularly strong followings in Fiji, Samoa, and Tonga.

    An official rugby union ball is made of leather or suitable material. Rugby shirts were formerly made of cotton but are now made of a cotton and polyester (涤纶) mix. This material has the advantage of not absorbing as much water or mud as cotton alone.

    8. Which of the following statements is WRONG about the ancient rugby?

    A. Players often got injured.

    B. A great number of people could take part.

    C. Players could run forward with the ball in their hands before 1823.

    D. Written rules were first made in Rugby School in the 1840s.

    9. Why was a drop goal shootout made?

    A. To select outstanding players.

    B. To encourage the audience’s curiosity.

    C. To make the match exciting.

    D. To decide the winner of the match.

    10. The third paragraph mainly talks about _______.

    A. the popularity of rugby sport

    B. how rugby union was established in England

    C. how British people spread the sport

    D. the origin and development of rugby

    11. Rugby shirts made of cotton alone ___________.

    A. are easy to absorb much water and mud

    B. are replaced by polyester shirt finally

    C. are much more expensive than polyester

    D. are much suitable to the players
