I think we should try to find a happy memory, something to lift us up on those unpleasant days. I`m saying this because I think I just found mine!

I had some work in Glasgow then. I was on a really  31  schedule, which meant I would have no time for myself all day. I was having one of those days, when the train was completely  32  and the conversation going on around me seemed to be particularly  33 . Besides, I had a bit of a headache.  34  quickly across the station hall, I fished some  35  from my pocket. There was usually someone at the exit  36  the Big Issue (a magazine that helps homeless folk earn a living).

 37  the crowd parted ways at the bottom of the hall, I saw someone selling the Big Issue. She really looked like she`d been sleeping  38 . Her clothes were  39  and she obviously hadn`t had a scrub up(擦洗) for quite a while.

As I  40  the exit, I saw that she was  41  from side to side. At first I thought she was trying to keep  42  against the biting wind. But she wasn`t. She was moving in time to a  43 . I couldn't hear her , but I could see her lips moving.

When I got closer, I saw a white  44  hanging from her elbow and noticed that she had sunken eyes. She was  45 ,dirty and living on  streets. I came closer and through the  46  of the traffic I could hear her  47  the immortal(不朽的) line, “…And I think to myself, what a wonderful world!”.

I bought her last magazine for twice what I’d originally  48 . She thanked me, and  49  her belongings and went tapping off along the pavement still singing!

So, I have my happy  50  for the day, and I think it will stay with me a long,long time.

Concern with money, and then more money, in order to buy the conveniences and luxuries of modern life, has brought great changes to the lives of most Frenchmen. More people are working than ever before in France. In the cities the traditional leisurely midday meal is disappearing. Offices, shops and factories are discovering the great efficiency of a short lunch hour in company lunch rooms. In almost all lines of work emphasis now falls on ever-increasing output. Thus the “typical” Frenchman produces more, earns more, and buys more consumer goods than his counterpart of only a generation ago. He gains in creature comforts and ease of life. What he loses to some extent is his sense of personal uniqueness, or individuality.

Some say that France has been Americanized. This is because the United States is a world symbol of the technological society and its consumer products. The socalled Americanization of France has its critics. They fear that “assemblyline life” will lead to the disappearance of the pleasures of the more graceful and leisurelybut less productiveold French style. What will happen, they ask, taste, elegance, and the cultivation of the good things in life to joy in the smell of a freshly picked apple, a stroll by the river, or just happy hours of conversation in a local café?

  Since the last 1950's life in France has indeed taken on qualities of rush ,tension, and the pursuit of material gain. Some of the strongest critics of the new way of life are the young, especially university students. They are concerned with the future, and they fear that France is threatened by the triumph of this competitive, goods-oriented culture. Occasionally, they have reacted against the trend with considerable violence.

  In spite of the critics, however, countless Frenchmen are committed to keeping France in the forefront of the modern economic world. They find that the present life brings more rewards, conveniences, and pleasures than that of the past. They believe that a modern, industrial France is preferable to the old.

55Which of the following is a feature of the old French way of life?

ALeisure, elegance, and efficiency.         

BElegance, efficiency, and taste.

CLeisure, elegance, and taste.                 

DEfficiency, taste, and convenient.

56Which of the following is NOT true about Frenchmen?

AMany of them prefer the modern life style.

BThey actually enjoy working at the assembly line.

CThey are more concerned with money than before.

DThey are more competitive than the old generation.

57The passage suggests that          .

Agreat changes have occurred in the life style of all Frenchmen

Bit's now unlikely to see a Frenchman enjoying a stroll by the river

Cthe French are fed up with the smell of freshly picked apples

Din pursuing material gains the French are suffering losses elsewhere

58The main idea of the passage is “          ”.

AChanges in the French Way of Life       

BCriticism of the New Life Style

CThe Americanization of France             

DFeatures of the New Way of Life

 

C

We've used the wind as an energy source for a long time. The Babylonians and Chinese were using wind power to pump water for irrigating crops 4,000 years ago, and sailing boats were around long before that. Wind power was used in the Middle Ages, in Europe, to grind(磨碎) corn, which is where the term "windmill" comes from.

We can use the energy in the wind by building a tall tower, with a large propeller on the top. The wind blows the propellor round, which turns a generator to produce electricity. We tend to build many of these towers together, to make a "wind farm" and produce more electricity. The more towers, the more wind, and the larger the propellors, the more electricity we can make. It's only worth building wind farms in places that have strong, steady winds, although boats and caravans(大篷车)increasingly have small wind generators to help keep their batteries charged.

The best places for wind farms are in coastal areas, at the tops of rounded hills, open plains and gaps in mountains - places where the wind is strong and reliable. Some are offshore. To be worthwhile, you need an average wind speed of around 25 km/h. Most wind farms in the UK are in Cornwall or Wales. Isolated places such as farms may have their own wind generators. In California, several "wind farms" supply electricity to homes around Los Angeles.

The propellors are large, to obtain energy from the largest possible volume of air. The blades can be angled to cope with varying wind speeds. Some designs use vertical turbines (垂直涡轮机), which don't need to be turned to face the wind. The towers are tall, to get the propellors as high as possible, up to where the wind is stronger. This means that the land beneath can still be used for farming.

59. The first paragraph aims to introduce to us _______.

A. the function of wind power                    B. the source of wind power

C. the nations using wind power                

D. the history of using wind power

60. The best places for building the wind farm are places where _______.

A. boats and caravans can often be seen

B. isolated farms don't have enough electricity

C. there are less human activities

D. the wind is strong and reliable

61. We can infer from the passage that _______.

A. wind farms will not take up too much farming land

B. wind farms need no fuel because wind is free

C. the blades can be angled to turn to face the wind wherever it comes from

D. the higher and larger the towers are, the stronger the wind is

62. What can be a suitable title for the passage?

A. Where to build a wind farm.                 

B. ABC of the using of wind energy.

C. How to make best use of wind.              

D. Wind energy is the best energy.

 

D

As you grow rapidly through your teenage years you will experience a lot of changes.

The changes may seem monumental and they may seem to happen quickly.Don’t panic! You will deal successfully with this time! The changes may seem difficult and your new-found responsilbilities may seem daunting(令人畏惧的) but you’re not alone.Everyone that you’ve grown up with is going through the same things!

With more responsibilities you will find more freedom to make your own choices. This is a time to be well informed about your choices so that you can make healthy balanced decisions that will help shape your future. You may already know your career path or you may have no idea at all of what you want to do. Both situations are fine!If you are diligent, the right opportunity will be ready for you.Young adulthood means greater freedom and more choices. You will probably begin to want to do things independently of your family/ care-givers. Try not to shut your family out of your life and remember to be considerate even though you are older and are capable of looking after yourself.Your family have been with you since you came into this world and they will be around you when you leave this world.

It is also perfectly natural in this time of transition to want to spend more time with your friends than your family.Choose your friends wisely. Real friends are rarer than hen’s teeth.A true friend will stand with you, whatever the circumstances are.

This period of transition is a part of the circle of life. There are some people who will be with you throughout the life’s journey and there will be some people with whom you part and go separate ways. Leaving school/college can be hard. The reality is that you may not ever see all of your classmates again.Sure, there may be reunions and you will keep in touch with some of them.But the fact is you will need to leave some of them behind as you move forwards on the path that you feel is right for you.

With smart phones taking the world by Storm, a phone that can only send and receive voice calls and text messages may seem like a relic from a bygone age. Yet in East Africasimple phones like these are changing the face of the economy, thanks to the mobile money services that are spreading across the region.

    Using the text-messaging function built into the GSM system(全球通)used by most cell phone networks, these services allow people without a bank account or credit card to use their phone as an electronic wallet that can be used to store. send or receive cash.

    It works like this: you pay cash to your local agent who then tops up your mobile money account using a secure form of text messaging. That money can be transferred(转账)to another person by sending a message to their cell phone account.

    For some the system is a lifeline. “If I didn,t have my mobile phone. I would be very poor, “says Neyasse Neemur, a mother of four children who lives in northern Kenya. “Now I can sell fish.”

    Neemur took up fishing in July last year, but making money from it was a little tricky, especially as Turkana people do not usually eat fish. A truck from Ethiopia to Tanzania passes through her village once a week, and she arranged to have the driver transport the fish several hundred kilometres south to market in Kisumu, where her relatives sell the fish.

    “I get the money transfer immediately.” says Neemur. “Then I can pay for my children to go to school and for vegetables and beans,” she adds, “so I don’t need to eat fish.”

    According to the Central Bank of Kenya, payments worth around l billion Kenyan shillings($13 million)per day were transferred through Kenya,s mobile money systems in 2009, equalling the country,s credit card transactions(业务). The bank expects mobile money transfers to overtake credit cards in 2011.

67In Paragraph lthe author uses“simple phones”to________.

Amake a comparison                       Bintroduce a topic

Cdescribe a scene                            Doffer an argument

68What can we learn about the simple phones in East Africa?

  AThey might help the local people apply for a bank account

  BThey will replace the banks completely in the near future

  CThey provide a safe means for the locals to do business

  DThey can do nothing except send and receive calls or messages

69The word“it”in the third paragraph refers to_______.

  Athe GSM system                              Bthe mobile money service

  Cthe credit card service                             Dthe cell phone networks

70The story of Neyasse Neemur suggests that_______.

  Athe mobile money service plays a key rote in the locals, life

  BNeemur uses her mobile phone to contact her customers

  Cher relatives tricks Turkana people to eat the fish they sell

  Dthe Bank of Kenya helps her improve her living condition

One possible version:

Being passionate, honest and hard-working, a good student is always listening and learning. Personally speaking, I strongly believe that honesty is the most important among dozens of good qualities.

There is a proverb that goes “Honesty is the best policy”, and it seems as true as it was when first coined. The most important element in human relationships, whether business or personal, is trust.

Here is one of my secrets. I once lied to my parents because of my poor scores. Having known the real fact from teachers, they praised and encouraged me, showing their deep love. Later days, my conscience swallowed me, growing as I told lie after lie in an effort to conceal my original deceit. I gave it up, and chose to be frank. Wow! It is better to stick to the truth!

From then on, I have kept the following in my minds: If it is not true, don’t say it. If it is not right, don’t do it. Honesty is not only the best policy, but also a principle, which is absolutely essential for the good and happy living of life.
