I sat down, with food in my lap, waiting to watch a movie. It sounds like a typical Friday night at home, but this time it was not. I was sitting down in a theatre of over 300 Filipinos speaking their native tongues. We were watching a film named Ulam: Main Dish. It’s directed by a Filipino-American director, and it’s about Filipino / Filipino-American food.
Right before the film began, I was caught in this realization: this is a film created by my people, for my people and about my people, and shared with an audience much larger than just us. This was the first time I had ever experienced a film of this nature. I could understand its stories and culture. The theatre went dark and before the film rolled, my eyes were already overflowed (洋溢)with pride.
I was watching this film at the Reel Asian Film Festival. At this year’s festival, I joined the Reel Asian team as their Social Media Assistant. This meant that during the festival I could actually get to speak to the filmmakers, actors, producers, etc. Particularly, I had the chance to speak to filmmakers about why a festival like this is important to them.
Through talking with them, I learned that there is something really unique about the Reel Asian Film Festival. It brings good Asian cinema a home in what is known as an incredibly diverse city, allowing these stories to be told to a diverse audience of diverse views.
For anyone looking to find themselves in a film, learn more about other cultures, and enjoy a good movie, I truly believe that Reel Asian is the place to be. As an annual event, it's so well planned and organized, and so much expectation is being built.

D．She could relate to the cultural information of the movie.
22．What did the author’s position at the festival allow her to do?

C．Helping Asian people know more about foreign movies.
D．Helping Asian restaurants develop new markets.

Every year, over 7.72 trillion kilograms of plastic is washed into the oceans. There are five huge areas in the world’s oceans that are a “soup” of floating rubbish. One of these areas, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP), is three times as large as France.
Over a year ago, a group called Ocean Cleanup began using a huge floating screen to try to clean up plastic pollution in the ocean. After several failures, the group is now collecting plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But the plastic is spreading out over a large area, so it's impossible to collect it piece by piece. So, the Ocean Cleanup had a plan. They got a long floating U-shaped tube with a screen hanging below it. As the tube and screen are pushed by the water and the winds, the U is meant to collect plastic rubbish, making it easy for a ship to collect and remove the plastic. The system uses the power of the wind and ocean, so it doesn’t need fuel.
The group began testing the first version, called “System 001”, last September. But it soon became clear that the screen was just moving with the plastic, not collecting it. Sometimes plastic would wash over the top of the tube. Even worse, System 001 got broken by surging seas and had to be towed to Hawaii for repairs.
But Mr. Slat, who got the idea for the Ocean Cleanup system, sees the project as an experiment, which means a failure is a chance to learn. The team collected and studied lots of information about what worked well and what didn’t. Then they changed the design. In June, an improved version, called “System001/B” was towed back to the GPGP.
The new version has a parachute (降落伞) attached to it. This makes the system move slightly slower than the plastic, allowing the plastic to be collected inside, as planned. But this success is still just the beginning of the work of the Ocean Cleanup. They want a better and larger system.
24．What does the author want to show in Paragraph 1?
A．Humans should try to prevent plastic waste.
B．The GPGP is facing different kinds of pollution.
C．Plastic pollution in the oceans has become a serious problem.
D．A series of problems has been caused by plastic pollution.
25．What was the group’s plan?
A．To make use of the water and the winds.
B．To create a ship to collect waste in the oceans.
C．To collect the floating plastic waste piece by piece.
D．To gather up the floating plastic waste in the oceans.
26．What can we know about the “System001”?
A．It was a failure. B．It was a great success.
C．It worked with a parachute. D．It needed to be fueled regularly.
27．What does the underlined word mean in Paragraph 3?
A．vast B．rough C．calm D．peaceful
24．推理判断题。根据第一段Every year, over 7.72 trillion kilograms of plastic is washed into the oceans. There are five huge areas in the world’s oceans that are a “soup” of floating rubbish. One of these areas, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP), is three times as large as France.可知每年有超过7.72万亿公斤的塑料被冲进海洋。世界上有五个巨大的海洋区域是漂浮垃圾的“汤”。其中的大太平洋垃圾带（GPGP）的面积是法国的三倍。由此可推知，在第一段中，作者通过列数字的方式是想表达海洋中的塑料污染已经成为一个严重的问题。故选C。
25．细节理解题。根据第二段中Over a year ago, a group called Ocean Cleanup began using a huge floating screen to try to clean up plastic pollution in the ocean. After several failures, the group is now collecting plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.可知一年多前，一个名为海洋清理的组织开始使用一个巨大的浮动筛来清理海洋中的塑料污染。经过几次失败后，该组织现在正在大太平洋垃圾带收集塑料。由此可知，这个团体的计划是收集海洋中漂浮的塑料垃圾。故选D。
26．细节理解题。根据第三段中But it soon became clear that the screen was just moving with the plastic, not collecting it. Sometimes plastic would wash over the top of the tube. Even worse, System 001 got broken by surging seas and had to be towed to Hawaii for repairs.但很快就发现，这块筛只是随着塑料的移动而移动，而不能收集垃圾。有时塑料会从管子的顶部冲洗出来。更糟糕的是，System 001被汹涌的海浪打破，不得不被拖到夏威夷进行维修。以及第四段第一句But Mr. Slat, who got the idea for the Ocean Cleanup system, sees the project as an experiment, which means a failure is a chance to learn.可知但产生海洋清理系统想法的Slat认为，这个项目是一个实验，也就是说，失败是一个学习的机会。由此可知，System001失败了。故选A。
27．词义猜测题。根据上文Even worse, System 001 got broken可知有更糟糕的是，系统001被汹涌的海浪打破，不得不被拖到夏威夷进行维修。由此可知，划线单词意思为“汹涌的，猛烈的”。故选B。
When you set a foot outside of your door to drop trash, go to a social event or go for a walk, thoughts like “I hope I don't see anyone I know” or “please don’ t talk to me” may run through your mind. I’ ve also said such things to myself. Sometimes the last thing you want to do is talk with someone, especially someone new.
Why do we go out of our ways to avoid people? Do we think meeting new people is a waste of time? Or are we just lazy, thinking that meeting someone new really is a trouble?
Communication is the key to life. We have been told that many times. Take the past generations, like our parents, for example. They seem to take full advantage of that whole “communication” idea because they grew up talking face to face while Generation-Y grew up staring at screens. We spend hours of our days sitting on Facebook. We send messages to our friends and think about all of the things we want to say to certain people that we don't have the courage to actually do in reality.
Nowadays, we are so caught up in our little circle of friends — our comfort zone. We love it that they laugh at our jokes, understand our feelings and can read our minds. Most importantly, they know when we want to be alone. They just get us.
Holding a conversation with someone new means agreeing with things that you don’t actually believe and being someone you think they want you to be — it is, as I said before, a trouble. It takes up so much energy, and at some point or another, it is too tiring.
But meeting new people is important. Life is too short, so meet all the people you can meet, make the effort to go out and laugh. Remember, Every “hello” leads to a smile — and a smile is worth a lot.
28．What do we learn about the author?
A．He likes to be alone.
B．He feels stressed out lately.
C．He's active in attending social events.
D．He's afraid of talking to others at times.
29．What's the problem of Generation-Y in the author’s eyes?
A．They rely on the Internet to socialize.
B．They are less confident in themselves.
C．They have difficulty in communicating.
D．They are unwilling to make new friends.
30．Why do many young people avoid meeting new people?
A．They think it troublesome.
B．They are busy with their study.
C．They fear to disappoint their old friends.
D．They want to take time to do meaningful work.
31．Why does the author write the text?
A．To tell about the importance of friends.
B．To give tips on how to meet new people.
C．To encourage people to meet new people.
D．To introduce the disadvantages of Generation-Y.
28．细节理解题。根据第一段I’ ve also said such things to myself. Sometimes the last thing you want to do is talk with someone, especially someone new.（我也对自己说过这样的话。有时候你最不想做的事情就是和别人交谈，尤其是和陌生人。）可知作者有时害怕和别人说话。故选D。
29．推理判断题。根据第三段We spend hours of our days sitting on Facebook. We send messages to our friends and think about all of the things we want to say to certain people that we don't have the courage to actually do in reality.（我们每天花几个小时坐在“脸书”上。我们给我们的朋友发信息，思考我们想对某些人说的那些我们在现实中没有勇气去说的事情。）由此推断出，在作者看来，年轻一代的问题是他们依靠互联网进行社交活动。故选A。
30．细节理解题。根据倒数第二段Holding a conversation with someone new means agreeing with things that you don’t actually believe and being someone you think they want you to be — it is, as I said before, a trouble. It takes up so much energy, and at some point or another, it is too tiring.（和新认识的人交谈意味着同意你不相信的事情，成为他们希望你成为的人——就像我之前说的，这是一个麻烦。它需要如此多的精力，在某些时候，它太累人了。）可知许多年轻人不愿结识新朋友是因为他们认为这很麻烦。故选A。
31．推理判断题。根据最后一段But meeting new people is important. Life is too short, so meet all the people you can meet, make the effort to go out and laugh. Remember, Every “hello” leads to a smile — and a smile is worth a lot.（但是认识新人是很重要的。生命太短暂，所以遇到所有你能遇到的人，努力走出去笑一笑。记住，每个“你好”都能带来一个微笑——而一个微笑是很有价值的。）由此推断出，作者写这篇文章是为了鼓励人们结识新人。故选C。
细节理解题大多是根据文章中的具体信息如事实、例证、原因、过程、论述等进行提问的。抓住文段中的事实和细节是做好该题型的关键，也是做好其它类型问题的基础。该题型几乎都可以在文章中直接找到与答案有关的信息，或是其变体。在一篇短文里大部分篇幅都属于这类围绕主体展开的细节。做这类题一般采用寻读法，即先读题，然后带着问题快速阅读短文，找出与问题和选项有关的词语或句子，再对相关部分进行分析对比，找出答案。正确选项虽然一般不是原文照搬，但是一般是原文的改写，意思不变。如换一个同义词，把否定改为肯定，把肯定改为否定等。如第3小题，根据倒数第二段Holding a conversation with someone new means agreeing with things that you don’t actually believe and being someone you think they want you to be — it is, as I said before, a trouble. It takes up so much energy, and at some point or another, it is too tiring.（和新认识的人交谈意味着同意你不相信的事情，成为他们希望你成为的人——就像我之前说的，这是一个麻烦。它需要如此多的精力，在某些时候，它太累人了。）可知许多年轻人不愿结识新人是因为他们认为这很麻烦。故选A。
If you are fond of learning languages, you must start learning Chinese. English is the most widely spoken language in the world and it is a more powerful language in all fields. But it is expected that Chinese, which is one of the six official languages of the United Nations (UN), will be the most important language in the coming years. What are the reasons behind the rapid spread of this language and why should you learn it?
My desire to learn languages was the reason why I studied many Latin languages and in the process, I deepened my knowledge of the languages and literature. However, I did not feel self-sufficient ( 自 给 自 足 的 ) from this knowledge. I gained a lot of information about the Western world. But my thinking was always about Asian civilizations. I always felt I needed to learn Chinese to be a global citizen (全球公民) because “without learning Chinese, we see with one eye”.
My contact with many international organizations and government institutions ( 机构 ) made me believe that Chinese is one of the most important languages of our time. After visiting the world’s most celebrated capitals such as Paris and London, I discovered that Chinese language can be seen everywhere in these places. In the subway in Paris, you will hear instructions in French, English and Chinese. In London, for example, the Chinese language was introduced for instruction in schools.
China is an important political (政治的) and economic country because it is making great economic progress that has never been seen before. The world is watching China with great surprise, and this peaceful Chinese rise makes us decide to focus on learning the Chinese language and knowing more about Chinese culture.
To be a global citizen these days, I would advise you to learn Chinese. It will add more beauty to your life and allow you to better understand Chinese civilization.
32．What can we learn about languages in the future according to the first paragraph?
A．Some of them will disappear.
B．More official languages will be added to the UN.
C．English will still have an advantage over others.
D．Chinese language will probably be second to none.
33．What do the examples in Paragraph 3 show?
A．Paris is a wonderful capital city worth a visit.
B．Chinese learning is very popular in schools in London.
C．People in some western countries like speaking Chinese.
D．Chinese language is playing an important role in the world.
34．What mainly causes Westerners to start learning Chinese according to the text?
A．The rise of Chinese economy.
B．Their love for language learning.
C．Their curiosity about Asian culture.
D．The long history of Chinese civilization.
35．What could be the best title for the text?
A．How to be a global citizen
B．Chinese — the language you must learn
C．What you should know about Chinese culture
D．Chinese economy—the most powerful engine
32．推理判断题。根据第一段中English is the most widely spoken language in the world and it is a more powerful language in all fields. But it is expected that Chinese, which is one of the six official languages of the United Nations (UN), will be the most important language in the coming years.“英语是世界上使用最广泛的语言，在各个领域都是一种更强大的语言。但是，作为联合国六种官方语言之一的汉语有望成为未来几年最重要的语言。”由此可知，中文可能会是首屈一指的语言。故选D。
33．推理判断题。根据第三段My contact with many international organizations and government institutions ( 机构 ) made me believe that Chinese is one of the most important languages of our time. After visiting the world’s most celebrated capitals such as Paris and London, I discovered that Chinese language can be seen everywhere in these places. In the subway in Paris, you will hear instructions in French, English and Chinese. In London, for example, the Chinese language was introduced for instruction in schools.“我与许多国际组织和政府机构的接触使我相信汉语是我们这个时代最重要的语言之一。在参观了世界上最著名的首都如巴黎和伦敦之后，我发现在这些地方到处都可以看到汉语。在巴黎的地铁里，你会听到法文、英文和中文的指示。例如，在伦敦，学校引入了汉语教学。”由此可知，第三段的例子说明“汉语在世界上起着重要的作用。”故选D。
34．细节理解题。根据第四段China is an important political (政治的) and economic country because it is making great economic progress that has never been seen before. The world is watching China with great surprise, and this peaceful Chinese rise makes us decide to focus on learning the Chinese language and knowing more about Chinese culture.“中国是一个重要的政治和经济国家，因为它正在取得巨大的经济发展，这是前所未有的。世界正以极大的惊讶注视着中国，中国的和平崛起让我们决定专注于学习汉语和了解中国文化。”由此可知，中国经济的崛起是西方人开始学习汉语的主要原因。故选A。
35．标题判断题。结合全文及最后一段的To be a global citizen these days, I would advise you to learn Chinese. It will add more beauty to your life and allow you to better understand Chinese civilization.“现在要成为一个世界公民，我建议你学习中文。它将为你的生活增添更多的美丽，让你更好地了解中国文明。”由此可知，你一定要学的语言是“汉语”为本文的最佳标题。故选B。
One of the biggest enemies of smartphone batteries is the phones ’ screens. The screens keep getting bigger, and they need to keep bright for outdoor use. 36． But, a new OLED technology can increase brightness and energy efficiency ( 效率). The technology is being developed by a team at the Imperial College London. They’re using a special development process to produce OLEDs that give off polarized light (偏振光).
So, what's that all meaning? Screens often include filters (滤光器) to help reduce unpleasant bright light from outside. 37． However, they also can prevent lots of the light from the screen itself. Any light that doesn’t make it to your eyes is basically wasted energy. By creating OLEDs that send out polarized light, the team can get the light from the OLEDs to pass through a polarized filter while light from outside will still get filtered by it.
For now, the technology doesn’t mean much for phones we have in our hands. Since it's still being researched, it's not likely to find its way for upcoming phones very soon. 38．
When it does, it would result in brighter screens and improved energy efficiency. Screens would not use the same amount of energy to produce bright light because none of it would be filtered out. 39．
And, that would mean much longer-lasting batteries for smartphones.
40． For example, smartwatches don't pack large batteries, so any efficiency improvement would have a strong benefit.
A．That means they will use more energy.
B．Plenty of phones already get a full day of life.
C．This technology can be used in other areas as well.
D．But it would finally be applied to consumers’ phones.
E.It can give OLED screens a huge step forward in competition.
F.The new technology can almost double the efficiency of screens.
G.These make it easier to see the light coming from your phone's screen.
36．根据上文提示“屏幕越来越大，在户外使用时需要保持明亮。”再根据下文提示“但是，一种新的OLED技术可以提高亮度和能源效率。”承接上下文，G项These make it easier to see the light coming from your phone's screen.（这些让你更容易看到来自手机屏幕的光线。）切题。故选G。
37．根据上文提示“屏幕通常包括过滤器，以帮助减少来自外部的不愉快的强光。”再根据下文提示“然而，它们也可以阻止屏幕本身的大量光线。”承接上下文，D项But it would finally be applied to consumers’ phones.（但它最终将应用于消费者的手机。）切题。故选D。
