Passage 1

It is never too late and you are never too old to start something new! says Englishtown student Ellen Rema. Ellen began to learn English at the age of fifty, and in just a few years, she has made great progress!

Studying online is never boring, but you need practice, practice, practice!Ellen says studying English isn’t all about hard work. It should also be fun.

Passage 2

 “Did you go skating a lot last year? I asked. Jen shook her head and looked at me. Finally she said, On Thanksgiving, Mom and I always went to visit some friends who lived on a farm. I especially loved seeing their big turkeys.

Until then, I didn’t think about how Jen felt. She had a new stepfather (继父) and stepbrother, and had a new town and home, too. Jen and her mom used to live near a lake where Dad and I went every summer, and she had to move up north with us. She had more changes than me.

Jen seemed sad, so I was busy thinking of some ways to cheer her up on Thanksgiving. I told her my plan and she was excited. First we made a huge snowball, and then a small snowball. Then we built a wall behind the big snowball as a tail. Jen mixed some food coloring with water, saying, We can spray () colors on the tail. Our snow turkey had a red, blue, green, and yellow tail. We were so busy that we didn’t notice our parents come outside. Dad found a hat for the snow turkey, and Mom wrapped her scarf around its neck.

Thanks for cheering Jen up, Mom said. “Youre a good brother, and you always come up with great ideas.” A happy feeling spread through me. I began to understand how much she cared about everyone in our new family.

Passage 3

I have a rule for travel, never carry a map. I prefer to ask for directions. Foreign visitors are oft en puzzled in Japan because most streets there don’t have names. In Japan, people use landmarks instead of street names. For example, the Japanese will say to travelers, Go straight down to the corner. Turn left at the big hotel and go past a fruit market. The post office is across from the bus stop.

In the country of the American Midwest, usually there are not many landmarks. There are no mountains, so the land is very flat. In many places there are no towns or buildings with miles. Instead of landmarks, people will tell you directions and distance. In Kansas (堪萨斯州), for example, people will say, Go north two miles. Turn east, and then go another mile.

People in Los Angeles, California have no idea of distance on the map. They measure(测量) distance by telling time. How far away is the post office?you ask.Oh,they answer, its about five minutes from here.You say, Yes, but how many miles away is it? They don’t know.

People in Greece (希腊) sometimes do not even try to give directions because few visitors understand the Greek language. Instead of giving you the direction, a Greek will often say, Follow me. Then he’ll lead you through the streets of the city to the post office.

Sometimes a person doesn’t know the answer to your question. A New Yorker might say, Sorry, I have no idea. But in Yucatan, Mexico (墨西哥), no one answers I dont know. People in Yucatan think that I dont know is not polite. They usually give an answer, often a wrong one. A visitor can get very, very lost in Yucatan!

One thing will help you everywhere. You might not understand a person’s words, but maybe you can understand his body language. He or she will usually turn and then point in the correct direction. Go in that direction and you may find the post office!

1. What do you think the word landmarks means?

A. Street names.          B. Building names.

C. Hotels, markets and bus stops.

D. Buildings or places which are easily seen.

2. In which place do people tell distance by telling time?

A. Japan.                  B. American Midwest.

C. Los Angeles, California.    D. Greece.

3. In the passage, countries are written about by the writer.

A. seven    B. four    C. five    D. eight

4. Which of the following is wrong?

A. Travelers can learn about people’s customs by asking questions about directions.

B. People in some places give directions, in miles, but people in other places give directions by telling time.

C. A persons body language can help you understand directions.

D. People in different places always give directions in the same waythey use street names.

5. The passage mainly tells us that  .

A. there are not many landmarks in the American Midwest

B. we never carry a map for travel

C. there is different ways to give directions in different parts of the world

D. New Yorkers often say I have no idea, but people in Yucatan, Mexico, never say this.

Passage 4

Are you carrying too much on your back at school? You’re not alone. Back experts in the United States are worried that young students are having back and neck problems as a result of carrying too much in their backpacks (schoolbags).

It hurts my back when I run, said Oberlin Reyes, a student in Virginia. Its hard to get up the stairs with my backpack, because its too heavy.

Oberlin is among students whose backpacks were weighed for a week in a recent study.

They had regular backpacks with two straps (带子) to carry them, but a number of students with heavy loads had switched to rolling backpacks (which have wheels and can roll on the ground).

Shirley Park, whose backpack weighed 10 kilograms, said she changed to a rolling backpack because she was starting to have back pain.

How much is too much? Experts say students should carry no more than 10 to 15 percent of their own body weight.

A few students had one suggestion to lighten the load: less homework.

P.S. () Doctors suggestion:

Lighten the load. Clean out binders (活页材料) and take home only the books you need that night.

Wide straps are better. They send out the weight over your shoulders more evenly (均匀). And be sure to wear both straps rather than hanging the pack over one shoulder.

Pack smart. The heavier things should be packed closed to the back.

Bend both knees when you pick up the pack, and don’t just bend over at the waist ().

A. The problem of backpacks is worth studying

Passage 7

Shu-How Lin, the newest well-known NBA professional basketball player, was born on August 23,1988 in California in the USA. His ancestors lived in Fujian Province in China. In 1977, his parents moved to America. Although they live in the USA, they know they are Chinese. And they love their motherland. They try their best to earn more honor for China.

When Shu-How was at high school, he showed a great interest in playing basketball. He practised basketball much harder than any other student in his school. Because of him, the school team became the champion of all the high schools in America, which had never got a champion before. Meanwhile, he studied particularly hard during high school. He always got “A” in most of his subjects.

After high school, his dream was to join a university, which was famous for basketball, to major in basketball. But none of these universities in America accepted him. They thought that he was just a Chinese and a Chinese could hardly become an excellent professional basketball player. He felt so sad and he had to attend Harvard University by his good grades, where professional basketball players are not wanted. But before long, he bacame the first man in Harvard who entered NBA after 1954.

Shu-How never gave up his basketball dream. He had joined several NBA teams. But he was never given a chance to show himself in each game. One day, two players of his team were badly hurt.

Passage 11

Today anyone will accept money in exchange for goods and services. People use money to buy food, furniture, books, bicycles and hundreds of others they need or want. When they work, they usually get paid in money.

Most of the money today is made of metal or paper. But people used to use all kinds of things as money. One of the first kinds of money was shells.

Shells were not the only things used as money. In China, cloth and knives are used. In the Philippine Islands, rice was used as money. In parts of Africa, cattle were one of the earliest kinds of money. Other animals were used as money, too.

The first metal coins were made in China. They were round and had a square hole in the center. People strung them together and carried them from place to place.

Different countries have used different metals and designs for their money. The first coins in England were made of tin. Sweden and Russia used copper to make their money. Later, countries began to make coins of gold and silver.

But even gold and silver were inconvenient if you had to buy something expensive. Again the Chinese thought of a way to improve money. They began to use paper money. The first paper money looked more like a note from one person to another than paper money used today.

Money has had an interesting history from the days of shell money until today.

Passage 12

Many parts of the world still do not have university-educated doctors or hospitals. Yet diseases are often cured. How? By using ancient methods. Through they centuries, people have found many useful chemicals in plants. Scientists believe many of these medicines may provide the cure for some of today’s most serious diseases.

Experts say almost 80 percent of the people in the world use plants for health care. These natural medicines are used not because people have no other form of treatment, but because people trust them. In developed areas, few people think about the source of the medicines they buy in the store. Yet many widely-used medicines are from ancient sources especially plants. Some experts say more than 25 percent of modern medicines come, in one way or another, from nature.

Scientists have long known that nature is really a factory of chemicals which can cure diseases. However, this factory is in danger because the world’s rain forests are disappearing quickly.

Plants also provide poisons. Scientists have found 1,200 kinds of plants that have some effect against insects. Not all of these natural insect poisons are powerful and most poisons may be the only way to kill insects without poisoning humans and animals.

Passage 13

It was Sunday and Tom was staying at home. After breakfast he went out into the garden and played quietly by himself. There were no kids around and he was used to playing alone quietly. He played with Bobby, the dog. He climbed up and down the tree. Sometimes a bird would come down to perch on top of the doghouse. Then Tom would have the greatest fun by throwing a stone or something at it. Though he never made it, he did like doing this kind of thing.

Now Tom had been in the garden for half an hour. Suddenly a crack was heard and the little boy began crying.

“What’s the matter, Tom?” his mother looked through the kitchen window. Tom ran into the kitchen.

“Mum,” he sobbed,“ I broke Bobby’s plate. I didn’t know it was so fragile.” His mother put her arms round him and said, “Don’t feel so sad, Tom. We have other plates for Bobby. But how did you break that one?”“I threw it at a bird but missed, and it went straight to the plate.” In Tom’s hand was his father’s gold pocket watch!

Passage 14

An important question about eating out is who pays for the meal. If a friend of yours asks you to have lunch with him, you may say something like this,” I’m afraid it’ll have to be someplace cheap, as I have very little money.” The other person may say. “OK, I’ll meet you at McDonald’s.”

This means that the two agree to go Dutch, that is, each person pays for himself.

He may also say, “Oh, no. I want to take you to lunch at Smith’s,” or “I want you to try the Chinese dumplings there. They’re great.” This means the person wants to pay for both of you. If you feel friendly towards this person, you can go with him and you needn’t pay for the meal. You may just say, “Thank you. That would be very nice.”

American customs about who pays for dates are much the same as in other parts of the world. In the old days, American women wanted men to pay for all the meals. But, today, a university girl or a woman in business world will usually pay her way during the day. If a man asks her for a dance outside the working hours, it means “ Come, as my guest.” So as you can see, it is a polite thing to make the question clear at the very beginning.

Passage 23

Who wants to carry a bulky bag to school? No children. Nobody wants one shoulder to be lower than the other, and paining(疼痛)too. In India, most of us would look at the reduction(减少)of textbooks as a way out. But in a country like America, there are always more choices. A company called go Reader has created a "school bag" which is the size of a laptop computer(笔记本电脑), weighing about 2.5 kg. The go Reader has a color screen and can "hold" all the textbooks that a student may need, says a report in 'The Asian Age' newspaper.

The company plans to work closely with the publishers(出版商) of textbooks so that these books can be supplied on the Internet. All the students will have to do is to download(下载) their textbooks. Making notes and marking important parts of a lesson can be done just as lots of students have done on their textbooks before.

At present, the plan is being tested out in a university. Richard Katzmann, the owner of the company is having his creation tested at Chicago's DePaul University, where he studied. Does that mean it is goodbye to the new paper, and the smell of the black ink?

Passage 24

Most people want to be happy, but few know how to find happiness. Money and success alone do not bring lasting happiness. Aristotle, a Greek thinker, said, “Happiness depends upon ourselves.” In other words, we make our own happiness. Here are a few suggestions to help you be happier.

The first secret of happiness is to enjoy the simple things in life. Too often, we spend so much time thinking about the future ―for example, getting into college or getting a good job ―that we fail to enjoy the present. You should enjoy life’s simple pleasures, such as reading a good book, listening to your favorite music, or spending time with close friends. People who have several close friends often live happier and healthier lives.

Another secret to living a happy life is to be active, and have hobbies where you forget your problems and time. Many people experience this dancing, or playing a sport, such as swimming. You can forget about your problems, and only think about the activity. Finally, many people find happiness in helping others. Studies show that people feel good when they spend their time helping others. If you want to feel happier, do good things for someone. You can help a friend with his or her studies, go shopping to buy food for an elderly person, or simply help out around the house by washing the dishes.

1. The best title(标题)of the passage is ________.

A. Money Makes You Happy                              B. The Secrets of Happiness

Passage 27

“When can I get a cell phone?”  The answer is when your parents think you need one, though many kids seem to be getting them around age 12 or 13. Some younger kids may have them because their parents see it as a matter of safety and convenience. For example, a kid can call mom and dad when sports practice is over. And a cell phone can give kids almost instant access(快捷通道) to their parents if something goes wrong or they need help. It can give parents quick access to their kids so they can check on them and make sure they’re OK.

If you do get a cell phone, make some rules with your parents, such as how many minutes you’re allowed to spend on the phone, when you can use your phone, when the phone must be turned off, and what you will do if someone calls you too often, and so on.

You’ll also have to learn to take care of the phone in your life. Keep it charged(充电) and store it in the safe place so it doesn’t get lost. And whatever you do, don’t use it in the bathroom. I know someone who dropped her phone in the toilet!

Passage 28

Every morning, the newspaper chief editor(主编) holds a meeting with the reporters. They discuss the main events(事件) of the day. Reporters are then sent to cover the events.

As soon as the reporters know what to write about, they get down to work. They telephone people and fix a time for a face-to-face interview with them. Sometimes they do telephone interviews. Checking information is very important. They go to the newspaper’s own library to look up any information that they need. This is called “doing one’s homework”.

At the same time, the picture editor decides which photographs will be used for the next day’s paper. All the people who work on a newspaper must be able to work fast. Reporters have to stop working on one story and start working at once on the important new one. They must find out the new information as quickly as possible. Later in the day, everything is put together at the news desk. Reporters return, type their stories into the computer and hand them to the editor.

    The chief editor decides which will be the most important story on the front page. Sometimes this will have to be changed if something more important happens late in the day. Other editors read the stories which the reporters have written and make any necessary changes.

Finally, there is no more time left for adding new stories, and the time for printing(印刷) the newspaper has come. This is done on fast-moving printing machines. The newspapers are then delivered(发送) by truck, plane or rail. Speed is important. People want to buy the latest newspaper; nobody wants to buy yesterday’s.

He seemed to want to do something special.

When I called him back, he had his usual one apple in his mouth. About five minutes later, I looked outside. The garden was completely covered with birds. Prana had dug up all those apples for his bird friends to eat. He knew that they wouldn’t have stored enough food for the coming winter!

Passage 30

The first English dictionary came out in 1604. The dictionary was nothing but a list of about 3,000 difficult words, together with a one-word definition(说明).

Passage 31

When the weather is hot, you go to a lake or an ocean. When you are near a lake or an ocean, you feel cool. Why the sun makes the earth hot, but it can not make the water very hot. Although the air over the earth becomes hot, the air over the water stays cool. The hot air over the earth is the place of the hot air. When you are near a lake or an ocean, you feel the cool air when it moves in. You feel the wind. And the wind makes you cool.
Of course, scientists cannot answer all of our questions. If we ask, "Why is the ocean full salt” Scientists will say that the salt comes from rocks. When a rock gets very hot or very cold it cracks. Rain falls into the cracks. The rain then carries the salt into the ocean. But then we ask, "What happens to the salt in the ocean The Ocean does not get more salt every year. Scientists are not sure about the answer to this question. We know a lot about our world. But there are still many answers that we do not have, and we are curious.

Passage 33

These days, most people in Britain and the US do not wear very formal(正式的)clothes. But sometimes it is important to wear the right thing.

Many British people don't think about clothes very much. They just like to be comfortable. When they go out to enjoy themselves, they can wear almost anything. At theatres, cinemas and concerts you can put on what you like from beautiful suits and dresses to jeans and sweaters. Anything goes, as long as you look clean and tidy.

But in Britain, as well as the US, men in offices usually wear suits and ties, and women wear dresses or skirts (not trousers). Doctors and business people always wear quite formal clothes. And on some hotels and restaurants men have to wear ties and women wear tidy dresses.

In many ways, Americans are less formal than British people, but they are more careful with their clothes. At home, or on holiday, most Americans wear informal or sporty clothes. But when they go out in the evening, they like to look nice. In good hotels and restaurants, men have to wear jackets and ties, and women pretty clothes.

It is difficult to say exactly what people wear in Britain and the US, because everyone is different. If you are not sure what to wear, watch what other people do and then do the same. You'll feel more comfortable if you don't look too different from other else.

Passage 43

In Some parts of the United States, farming is easy. But farming has always been difficult in the northeastern corner of the country, which is called New England.

New England has many trees and thin, rocky soil. Anyone who has wanted to start a new farm has had to work very hard. The first job has been cutting down trees. The next job has been digging the stumps(树桩) of the trees out of the soil. Then the farmer has had the difficult job of removing stones from his land.

This work of removing stones never really ends, because every winter more stones appear. They come up through the thin soil from the rocks below. Farmers have to keep removing stones from the fields. Even today, farms which have been worked on for 200 years keep producing more stones.
