  Adventure is in my blood. And I had been considering how I was going to celebrate my high school graduation. I didn't just want a small    1    in the backyard, I started thinking about doing a solo(独自的)   2    somewhere out of the ordinary. I took out the    3    and drew a 1,500-mile route along which I would be    4    from the northernmost point in Norway to the southernmost section of Sweden. When I    5    my plan with my dad, he    6    as I thought he would. Because I get my adventurous    7    from him, he was all for it.

I had only been away from my    8    for three days, but there was an inner    9    going on. Part of me was homesick and doubting whether I really could    10    it. The other part of me was ready to    11    to myself and my family that I could do it by myself.

On the road, I met another    12    who was quite a bit older than I was. He started his journey alone by    13    at the southern part of Norway and just finished. I could tell he had a great sense of    14   . It encouraged me not to    15   .

As I listened to my    16    artists on my MP4 player, I pedaled(踩踏板)with my feet. There was    17    around me for miles.    18   , that wasn’t entirely true. There were mosquitoes millions of them. My arms were so dotted with    19    that they looked like a topographical(地形的)map. But, however    20    it would be, nothing could stop my advance on the destination. As you know, adventure is in my blood.

    This morning a young man was wandering on campus. He came from one of the mental illness houses on the surrounding streets. He’s quiet and polite, and I think him very    21    and bored. I saw him earlier standing at the soda vending machine (投币式自动售货机)jiggling (摇动)    22    in his pockets. It appeared he didn't have enough money for a soda at $ 1.50. He was bending down and    23    dropped change under the vending machine. Nothing to be    24    I asked him how much money he    25    and he replied, "Just 2 quarters." I    26    into my pocket and I had 2 lonely little quarters. I gave them to him and asked him what he was going to eat for lunch. He said they had food back at the house,    27    usually just noodles or a sandwich that he didn’t like. I took him back to my     28    and gave him several Pizza Hut coupons (优惠券).

I’ve been    29    small change for several years in a can at the office. I gave him the    30    and told him to take it to the market and use the coins. I told him to make sure he    31    my can because it had cats on it. Just 10 minutes later he    32    the can back and handed me $ 30. 00 and some change. This was the    33    of the can. He didn't understand the money was for him and thought I just wanted him to do me a favor and cash in the change for me.

We had a    34    conversation about animals, science, food, etc. and then I handed him the $ 30.00 and change. I told him I wanted him to    35    the money and just return the can. He asked me why I was doing this for him. I    36    , "You have a need and I'm happy that I can help." After    37    to him, he understood.    38   his exit, I handed him a(n)    39    psychology book in case he wanted to know more about the science of the mind.

Just 2 quarters can make the young man    40    , make me cry happy tears, and leave him to know people care about him.

What was    42   , a fire broke out in our house then, destroying everything    43    within. We had nothing for a while, no clothes, no money and no place to stay, nothing.

After the fire, we went to    44    with my grandma in her one-bedroom apartment and    45    on her living room floor. Practically penniless, we had only the clothes on our    46   .

I stayed on the balcony of the apartment, feeling sad for I    50    not being able to give my mother anything, especially now. She needed    51   ; she was every bit as    52    as me. Then I saw it. The most beautiful    53    I could have ever imagined. The brightly colored sun    54    lightly on top of some clouds    55    unbelievable blues, browns and reds. The colors combined in pleasant ways. Something    56    in my head — that was the perfect    57    for my mother. I ran    58   , too excited to talk, and pulled my mother out onto the balcony. The colors had filled the entire sky.

Mother was    59    but then happy. She told me in a breathless voice that no one had ever given her anything as    60   , or as beautiful. She said she would take the light and colors of that sunset and keep them in her heart forever...

   Doing voluntary work is becoming more and more popular nowadays because it benefits the individual volunteer, people in need and our society.

When helping others, we are enriching our lives as well. First, doing voluntary work is our responsibility and duty. Second, we can enlarge our life circles so that we get more chances to learn deeper about the present situation of our society, which is very important to our future development. Last, when doing voluntary work with others, we are improving our ability to cooperate with different people and build up team spirit. As for us students, doing voluntary work is an effective way to participate in social activities. In other words, it gives us the chances to prepare to fit into the society in advance.

Through voluntary work, the living conditions of people in need are improved. For example, lots of children in remote areas don't have access to enough food and clothes, let alone education. Some people donate money and clothes while some volunteers go to these areas to teach these children, bringing them knowledge as well as the latest information of the world. In this way, these children's qualities of life are improved and they'll integrate into the society more easily and get a sense of belonging.

The more voluntary work we do, the more steady and harmonious our society will be. Volunteers spread warmth and care all over the world, strengthening union and trust among citizens. As Ban Ki-moon once said, “Volunteerism is a source of community strength. It can bring positive social change by promoting respect for diversity, equality and the participation of all."

In conclusion, by doing voluntary work, both volunteers and people in need get the precious life experience, and it benefits our society to a large degree. We should keep on doing and appeal to more people to take part in this meaningful activity.

61What does the passage mainly talk about?

ADoing voluntary work is becoming popular at present.

BDoing voluntary work takes much energy and money.

CDoing voluntary work can make more people live a happy life.

DDoing voluntary work is beneficial to others, our society and volunteers themselves.

62Why does the writer say it also benefits individual volunteers while they are helping others?

AIt can improve their ability to get along with different kinds of people,

BIt helps them win recognition and respect from others.

COne can become famous for doing voluntary work.

DOne can make more friends while helping others.

63Which of the following can best replace the underlined phrase in the third paragraph?

ABreak into.                                                BLook into.

CAdapt to.                                                  DContribute to.

64From what Ban Ki-moon said, what did he disagree with?

    Bullying(欺凌)at school is a problem around the world. Most schools have. tried to reduce bullying by- making more rules. And many schools even have made their teachers supervise(监督)their students' behavior more strictly But one school in Auckland, New Zealand has done something different. Instead of making more rules for the playground, they reduced the number of rules. What happened? There's less bullying and other injuries.

At Swanson Primary School, during playtime, students can play in the mud, climb trees, ride skateboards, and do many such things that aren't allowed at other schools. If they promise that they do not hurt others and do not make trouble for their classmates, they can do just about anything they want.

“They may accidentally hurt themselves, but that's 0K," the teacher Bruce Mclachlan says. " We want kids to be safe and we look after them, but we end up wrapping(包裹)them in cotton wool when in fact they should be able to fall over. " Because students are able to do almost anything they want, they are happier. And happier students are less interested in making trouble. That makes parents and teachers happy.

Playtime freedom all helps the students learn the dangers of rude behavior. This will help develop the part of their brain that measures risks. This can be helpful when they are older. For example, if a kid does something rude on a skateboard and gets hurt, he or she will be less likely to repeat the rude activity. And if kids learn not to be rude on a skateboard, they are less likely to be hurt later in life when they're driving cars. Safety is important, but as Swanson Primary School has shown, more rules don't always mean more safety.

65What happened when a school reduced the number of playground rules?

AStudents were out of control completely.

BTeachers took on more responsibility.

CLess students were bullied or injured.

DMore parents worried about school bullying.

66What rule should students obey if they want to do something freely at Swanson Primary School?

AThey do not hurt anyone else.

BThey're being strictly supervised.

CThey study carefully in the classroom.

DThey do not make trouble for their teachers.

67What does Bruce Mclachlan mean by saying “we end up wrapping them in cotton wool” in Paragraph 3?

AStudents get hurt easily.

BStudents are overprotected.

CStudents can't wear what they like.

DStudents are given too much freedom.

68According to the last paragraph, playtime freedom helps students          .

Aavoid driving cars

Bmake safe decisions

Clearn how to obey rules

Dbecome more confident

    It is quite apparent that competition surrounds every aspect of human life whether in the United States or the Amazon rainforest. Without it we would not have grown into primates (灵长类动物) . Or we would probably still be struggling to sharpen a bronze tool while crawling around on four legs in search of meat. Without competition, Columbus wouldn’t have discovered America and Edison would never have invented the light bulb.

Friendship, like all relationships between two people, involves competition. It isn’t competition in a traditional sense because there are no goals to be scored and no prize. Perhaps the ecological definition --- the simultaneous (同时) demand by two or more organisms for limited environmental resources, such as nutrinents, living space, or light --- better explains it.

As in nature, high school life is governed by a set of laws, similar to a shortened version of Darwin’s theory of evolution, overpopulation, and competition. There is an abundance of high school students and to distinguish them, ranking and categorizing (分类) take place. In high school, friendships learn to coexist with competition even though at times the relationship is rough. In fact, in some circumstance, competition is too much of a burden for a friendship to bear, causing it to fall apart. College admission is the final high school objective. Four years of hard work is to achieve good grades, and a student’s fate is determined not only by these achievements, but by the records of thousands of other seniors trying to achieve a similar recognition.

Nevertheless, by necessity, competition between students exists in all aspects of high school life. It sets and improves the standards in everything from sports to schoolwork. A healthy, friendly competition can have only benefits, but when it becomes too fierce, jealousy (妒忌) can tear friendships apart. Yet, despite all this, without competition, we would be lost.

69What does the ecological definition mainly explain?

AHow to win the competition.                       BWhat competition exactly is.

CWhat the result of competition is.                 DHow friends compete with each other.

70According to the writer, what causes the high school students to compete?

AThey know the laws of nature well.              BFriendship is a burden for them.

CThe number of them is too large.                 DThey are divided into different groups.

71Which best describes the relationship of friendship and competition?

AFriendship is always based on competition.

BCompetition is a result of lost friendship.

CCompetition is terribly harmful to friendships.

DThe degree of competition is vital to friendship.

72What does the author think of “competition”?

ACompetition is certain to happen at school.

BThe result of competition are out of control.

CCompetition becomes fierce in high school.

DFriendship is not as important as competition at school.

    Nothing succeeds like success, as every parent of a straight-A student knows, but trying to strengthen academic excellence by telling your child, " You're so smart!" may be counterproductive.

According to the: findings of a 2017 study, children who think their intelligence is fixed are less likely to pay attention and return to normal from mistakes than children who think their intelligence can grow and change. Telling kids they're smart strengthens the idea that intelligence is a genetic gift rather than a skill that can be improved.

In the study published online, researchers at Michigan State University looked at 123 children who were about 7, as kids at this age face the challenge of going to school. The team assessed the children to determine whether they had a "growth mindset", who believe that they can work harder to get smarter, or a"fixed mindset", who believe that their intelligence is unable to change. They then asked the children to complete a fast-paced computer accuracy task while their brain activity was recorded. In the task, children played a game, helping a zookeeper catch escaped animals by pressing the space bar when an animal showed up on their screens.

Based on the data they collected, the researchers concluded that children with a "growth mindset" were much more likely to have a larger brain response after making a mistake, and in turn were more likely to improve their performance by paying closer attention to the task after making an error.

While previous research has shown that people with a "fixed mindset" don't want to admit they've made a mistake, this study found that children with a "fixed mindset" were able to "return to normal" after making an error, but only if they gave their full attention to the mistake and used it as an opportunity to learn.

For parents, the lessons are clear: For starters, don't pay compliments(赞美的话)that suggest intelligence is fixed. If a child hands you an A+test, don't say, " You're so smart!" Instead say," Wow, that studying really paid off!" or " You clearly mastered this material—way to go!". Note the effort, not the intelligence.

73Which of the following can be closest to the meaning of " counterproductive"?

AAchieving the opposite result.

BGoing far away from the goal.

CShowing off your intelligence.

DForming a good relationship.

74What was discovered in a 2017 study?

AChildren are easy to lose focus in class.

BIt takes time for children to regain confidence.

CSkills are generally thought to be able to be improved.

DTelling kids they're smart means emphasizing the born gift.

75What does the third paragraph mainly tell us?

AThe purpose and the process of the study.

BThe major breakthrough made in the study.

CThe participants and the place of the study.

DThe scientific methods used in the study.

76How is the text developed?

ABy listing statistics.

BBy comparison.

CBy showing examples.

    The end of the year is drawing near, and winter is in full swing. The season brings along with it strong winds and snow — an environment that’s never comfortable to be in.

This unpleasant and even frightening aspect of winter can often be seen in literature. In Shakespeare’s King Lear (1606), the king has given away his kingdom and been rejected by his two ungrateful daughters. He is out in the winter coldsuffering things that are usually reserved for the poorest and most unfortunate human beings.

The winter is bad enough for Learbut being abandoned by his family is worse. A song from another Shakespeare play, As You Like It(1599), is fitting for this poor old man's situation: "Blowblowthou winter wind/Thou art not so unkind /As ma's ingratitude (忘恩负义)". Here, winter is used to bring out the ugliness of inhumanity (无人性). There aren't many things that are worse than winter, according to Shakespeare.

Once winter became less of a threat to human beings, literary works featuring it became more positive. Since Charles Dickens, the representation of the season in literature has often featured happy Christmas celebrations.

The cold of the winter weather provides a contrast to the fun going on indoors.

Dickens' A Christmas Carol (1843) was the start of this, but Christmas is still a common, cheery element (元素)in stories that feature winter scenes today. Consider the joy felt by Harry Potter and his friends in J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (1997) as they sit down for their festive meal

"Harry had never in all his life had such a Christmas dinner. A hundred fatroast turkeys; mountains of roast and boiled potatoes; platters of chipolatas; tureens of buttered peas, silver boats of thick, rich gravy and cranberry sauce".

It is almost as much a pleasure to read about the meal as it might have been to eat it.

Although winter still isn’t the most cheerful season in novels and poems, it’s safe to say that writers have certainly "warmed up" since Shakespeare’s days.

81What’s the author’s main purpose in writing this article?

ATo recommend some winter stories in literature.

BTo explain what winter is like in literary works.

CTo describe certain customs that are related to winter.

DTo tell us why winter is described as unpleasant in literature.

82What can we learn from Shakespeare’s works?

AShakespeare didn’t like winter for its bad weather.

BKing Lear was forced to give up being a king in a cold winter.

CIt’s in winter when King Lear drove his two daughters off.

DWinter is compared with the ugly side of humanity.

83Why does the author mention Charles Dickens in the passage?

ABecause a lot of his works are related to winter.

BBecause he is the most popular author of winter stories.

CBecause he started a new way of representing winter.

DBecause his works make people feel cheerful in winter.

84The example of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is used mainly to show      .

Atraditional Christmas food makes the winter cheery

BChristmas is still a symbol of joy in modern stories

Cit’s a pleasure to read Christmas-related books in winter

Dwinter has become the happiest season in literary works

    Cyclist Alain Such has been dropped from the Ingotel cycling team for two years after a positive drug test at the Institute of Drug Free Sport. "I was flabbergasted, "said Vidier Garcia, from Team Ingotel. "Alain joined our team last month and we had no idea that he was being examined."

It’s a story that has become more and more familiar in recent years. Dr Mohammad Farnood, a leading sports scientist from Cairo, Egypt, said, "It is thought that some athletes will look for other ways to improve their performance in addition to using drugs."

However, it has not always been against the law. In the Olympics in 1994, Thomas Hicks won the marathon after using drugs in the middle of the race. In fact, the first one didn’t make him feel better for long, so he was given another and, as a result, he fell down soon after finishing and knew nothing. Another one may well have killed him.

Things are very different today. Some scientists are considering the possibility of using genetic engineering to further develop athletes’ abilities. "If it works with no risk of discovery, "said Dr Farnood, "then it’s likely to become common practice for athletes."

Researchers are looking at the possibility of identifying "athletic" genes and correcting weak ones. Put into practice, this would make a person healthier and stronger. Once scientists understand what the genes of top athletes look like, it might even become possible to identify "athletic" genes in young people, and then money could be spent on children who have the most promising genes.

"People are beginning to recognize that it can do good to our society, for example in saving lives and in creating better quality food for people," Dr Farnood said. "So, is it fair to use genetic engineering in sport? You could ask if it's fair for some runners to use the latest scientifically developed footwear. The key question is whether it’s available to everyone.’

85What does the underlined word "flabbergasted" in Paragraph 1 mean?

AShy.                                                         BProud.

CExcited.                                                    DSurprised.

86What happened to Thomas Hicks in 1994?

AHe was badly hurt in training.                     BHe broke the law when running in a race.

CHe took drugs and almost got killed.            DHe lost the match in the Olympic Games.

87Who may show the greatest concern about using genetic engineering in sport?

AVidier Garcia.                                           BThomas Hicks.

CAlain Such.                                               DDr Mohammad Farnood.

88What can we learn from Paragraphs 5 and 6?

AThe possibility of identifying " athletic" genes has become available.

BIt’s not clear whether it is fair to use genetic engineering in sport.

CThe practice of using drugs in sport has a long history.

DIt’s dangerous to use drugs in sport.

    If you ever visit an English village, make sure to look out for morris dancing. Undoubtedly one of the strangest traditions of English culture, morris dancing is a form of folk dancing that dates back to the 15th century. If you ever get the opportunity, you really have to see it.

Men and women wearing old-fashioned, shabby(破烂的)clothing dance in the streets of towns and villages across the country during the holiday periods. Women wear long skirts and men wear short trousers with bells attached to them. They dance to traditional folk music which is often played on traditional musical instruments.

Some groups carry heavy black sticks with which they beat against each other while they dance. Other groups wave handkerchiefs in the air while they perform. The dances are usually performed near a pub so that when they’re over, the dancers and audience can sing some traditional folk songs over beer. The celebrations will often continue long into the night.

Morris dancing is a great English tradition but it’s facing a big crisis. As the years go by, fewer and fewer young people are joining morris dancing groups. The dancers are getting older and older and eventually, if not protected, the tradition will die out within the next few decades.

If you’ve ever had the fortune to see morris dancing, you may understand why teenagers aren’t rushing to sign up. Frankly, it’s not exactly the coolest thing for an 18-year-old to do. Why dress up in bells and funny costumes when you could be going camping, playing sports or doing anything else?

However, it would be a great shame to lose such a fun and lively part of England’s history and culture. So here’s a toast to the next generation of would-be morris dancers! Let’s hope they don’t leave it too late.

89What is the passage mainly about?

AThe origins of moris dancing.

BThe popularity of morris dancing.

CThe protection of morris dancing.

DThe introduction of morris dancing.

90What do we know about morris dancers?

AThey dance in pubs late into the night.

BThey perform with sticks or handkerchiefs.

CThey wear long dresses with bells attached.

DThey sing folk music while they dance.

91What is the present situation of morris dancing?

AIt is losing appeal among young people.

BIt is keeping pace with people's demand.

CIt is witnessing great changes in history.

DIt is being criticized by modern people.

92What does the author think about morris dancing?

AIt helps stay healthy.

BIt is fun for teenagers.

CIt deserves more attention.

DIt is too old-fashioned.

    Along with soccer, basketball is a global sport. As you read this. young people somewhere in the world are happily passing, dribbling(运球) and shooting. It’s enormous fun and a joyful way to spend time with others.

Basketball is a game for everyone. Unlike golf or tennis. it doesn't require great wealth or a lot of space to play. After all, not many people have a golf course-sized backyard. and tennis equipment is expensive. Basketball, by contrast, just needs a wall with a hoop and a ball.

So after its invention by Canadian-American physical educator James Naismith in 1891, the sport took off within US citizens, who quickly became attracted to the game because it suited their circumstances. Today, 127 years later, basketball remains one of the most popular sports in the US, and the National Basketball Association (NBA)has an increasing appeal for fans around the world.

The success of basketball as global phenomenon is undoubtedly related to the way African-Americans play the game.” The basketball court reflected some of the major cultural shifts in America, such as from forbidding African-Americans to play basketball to allowing them to play in the NBA, "the LIVESTRONG website noted.

From the 1950s onwards, segregation rules, which had prohibited African-Americans from playing basketball in NBA games, were no longer used in the US. In 1950, when Earl Lloyd started to play for the Washington Capitols, things began to change. Since then, most of the greats of the game have been African-Americans, like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

It's not difficult to see that there's a strong link between political liberation and basketball. Something of this is expressed in a quote from the US author John Edgar Wideman. He makes a connection between basketball and hope:" When it's' played the way it's supposed to be played. basketball happens in the air; flying, floating, raised above the floor, letting the oppressed(受压制的) people of this earth imagine themselves in their dreams.”

93What advantage does basketball have over golf or tennis, according to the author?

AIt can be played everywhere.

BIt doesn't cost much.

CIt doesn't require too much skill.

DIt interests almost everyone.

94What can we learn about basketball from Paragraph 3?

AThe sport was created by a PE teacher.

BThe sport was not popular with people at first.

CIts rules have been changed a lot to suit new circumstances.

DThe NBA.with a history of 127 Years. attracts people worldwide

95The main purpose of Paragraph 5 is to             .

Aexplain the origin and rules of NBA games in the 1950s

Bprove the popularity of basketball among African-Americans

Cstress the success African-Americans in basketball

Dshow how racial integration took place in basketball

96What do John Edgar Wideman's words mean?

ABasketball is sometimes a useful tool for politicians.

BAmerican people usually have a basketball dream.

CBasketball stands for the freedom and hopes of people.

DPolitical oppression is a serious problem in the US.

    In my second-to-last semester of college. my favorite professor announced that he would be teaching a study abroad course over the winter break in Cambodia. The more he talked about the opportunity. the more interested I became. I left class thinking I might actually do it.

My immediate excitement gave in to excuses as the weeks passed. The trip would be expensive, I would have less time to spend with my family over the break, and I hadn't really traveled before. Most of all, I was terrified of taking the risk.

On the day when I made my decision, I suddenly felt as if I had finally opened my eyes and seen myself clearly. Why was I so scared to take this chance? I had moved away from home, had almost graduated from college, and had overcome plenty of small-scale fears. How could I let fear get in the way of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Besides, I had always dreamed of traveling around the world and studying abroad was a major point on my list.

So took the challenge. I was scared but excited on the plane, and my fears faded as soon as the wheels touched the runway. I soon found myself attracted by ancient mountaintop temples. I spent my days teaching poor orphans(孤儿) simple English, learned little Khmer myself, and became an expert at avoiding terrible traffic and bargaining with Cambodian store owners.

By the end of my stay, I had fallen in love with travel, exploration and life of daily wonders.

My experience in Cambodia was incredible and life-changing. I came back and became a different person, but a better one: a better friend, sister, daughter, girlfriend and student. I came back and became a grown woman instead of a young girl.

After Cambodia, my life clicked into place. Before the trip, I hadn't known what I wanted to do after graduation. Now am planning on teaching English abroad as a volunteer.

    A new keyboard can tell whether you are its owner. The keyboard records information about the typing pattern(模式)and sends it to a computer program. The program then checks to see if the pattern matches the right user. If not, an alarm sounds, and the computer locks the typist out. It locks out everyone else, even if the person knows the password. What's more, this equipment needs no batteries. It collects all the energy it needs from your actions of typing. Besides, the keyboard is also self-cleaning and the keys are free of damage from water, oil and dirt.

The keys of the new keyboard are made of the same inexpensive plastic that might be found on any other standard keyboard. But instead of being smooth, the keys have millions of tiny plastic nanowires(纳米线)on their surface area, increasing the effective contact areas between the plastics and fingers. This guarantees that there's enough power to run the keyboard as someone types.

Liming Dai, a scientist, did not work on the new keyboard, but he thinks the design could be important in getting better performance from a variety of equipment. "It could also be applied to a touch screen, for example, "Dai says. " Then smart phones and notepads could collect energy from someone's actions of typing or drawing. "

"Future work might make the keyboard even more useful, "Dai adds. " A later design might build tiny capacitors onto the nanowires, "he suggests. Capacitors are little devices that temporarily store electric charge. Those might then be LEDs to light a keyboard in the dark.

Zhonglin Wang is a co-designer of the new keyboard. His team has built a working model of the keyboard. "If a company decides to fund(资助)its production, this keyboard could be in stores in as few as two years, "says Wang.

101How does the new keyboard tell whether you are its owner

ABy matching the typing pattern to the right user.

BBy sending alarms to a computer program.

CBy checking the right user's passwords.

DBy just recording information about the typing pattern.

102Why are there many nanowires on the surfaces of the keys

ATo keep the keyboard free of damage.

BTo improve the speed of typing.

CTo make the keys smooth.

DTo help produce power.

103What's Dai's attitude to the new keyboard

AUnconcerned.                                            BDoubtful.

CPositive.                                                   DCritical.

104What is the best title for the text

AA New Keyboard Made of Nanowires

BA New Keyboard Entirely Owned by You

CA New Keyboard's Future

DA New Keyboard Powered by Typing

    Let me tell you about my relationship with the school desk. From my first day at elementary school in 1982, it was terrible. This was how it went down: five seconds into class, the foot started bouncing; 10 seconds in, both feet; 15 seconds, I burst out drumming! After a few minutes, it’s all over. That desk and I didn’t get along.

Sitting still was hard enough, but I also struggled with reading. Reading the words out loud in class was a special kind of hell (地狱). By the third grade I had progressed from being one of “those kids” to being the “special kid”. I was found to have multiple language based learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder (ADD) (多动症). I was turned into a “patient” who needed treatment rather than a human being with differences. I struggled with severe anxiety and depression at age 10.

I survived this time in my life because of my mom. She knew in her heart that her child wasn’t broken and didn’t need to be fixed. My mom was right. When I think back on my school experience, I realize it wasn’t the ADD that disabled me. What disabled me was limitations not in myself but in the environment. I’ve come to believe that I did not have a disability, as it is common to say, but experienced a disability in environments that could not accommodate and accept my differences.

In the fall of 1997, after two years at Loyola Marymount University, where my learning differences were fully accommodated, I transferred (转学) to Brown University, where I graduated with an honours degree in English literature. I still can’t spell or sit still, but I now use support and technology to relieve my weaknesses and build a life on my strengths. I don’t feel stupid anymore and I know that I and others like me can live good lives despite these challenges.

105What does the author mainly want to tell us in the first paragraph?

AHe didn’t like studying.

BHe used to be active at school.

CHe suffered from a broken desk.

DHe had trouble sitting still in class.

106How did the author probably feel in class in his early school years?

AExcited.                                                    BUneasy.

CInterested.                                                 DBored.

107What can we learn from the last paragraph?

AThe author is living a good life with his weakness.

BThe author’s disability has been cured by technology.

CThe author got his honours degree in English literature in the fall of 1997.

DThe author was transferred to Brown University because of his disability.

Keep Calm During the Hard Times

When life gets hard, sometimes it's not easy to control yourself and not to sink deep into the bad feelings. Have you ever wondered how some people can be so calm during the hard times108 Here are four things you can do to get through hard times.

Cry if you need to-for a while. Some people like to control themselves.109 If you do control them, it's like holding a ball under the water. You can do it for a while, but it will finally come back to the surface. So have a good cry once in a while to help you think more clearly.110 Lost in the bad emotions, we won't change anything. Let's say you just lost your job. Maybe it is a shock. After crying, then you should make the decision to put your calm hat on. Start to find new jobs. Then do something.

Ask for help. Unluckily, a lot of people think that asking for help is a sign of weakness. It's not!111 Nowhere! Having other people support you will make you feel like you have more power than before.

Believe that things will get better. If you don't believe that things will change, then they won't. I always love Henry Ford's words, "Whether you think you can or you think you can't-you are right." If you think things will get better, then they finally will. If you think they won't, then they won't.112

Stay calm when life gets hard. If you practice these steps on a regular basis, sooner or later it will become second nature to you.

AFind the solution.

BRemember that it won't last forever.

CYour belief shapes your experience.

DBut controlling your feelings doesn't always help.

E.Would you like to use some ways that keep you calm during the hard times

F.Somewhere in the world, someone has it a lot worse than you right at this moment.

G.Where has it ever been written that everyone needs to go through the difficulties alone?

Don’t worry if you are not a natural-born peacekeeper. You can gain this skill during life.

4.Walk off.
