of teaching，I was also(and am still)a high school track and field coach(田径教练). One year, I had a student，John，who entered my class when he was a junior(三 年 级学生)John changed to our school from Greece，and seemed to be interested in athletics，so I encouraged him to join our track team. I explained to him that even though he had never taken part in it before，I did believe that he could do well in any event，and l would be willing to coach him at whichever ones interested him. He accepted the offer, and began to work hard at every practice. About a month later, I had found out from other sources that John was a first-class tennis player, winning various junior awards in his home country． I went to him asking， “John， I really appreciate that you came out for the track team，but why didn?t you play tennis instead? It seems that would interest you a lot more，since you?re so good at it.” John answered，“Well，I like tennis，but you told me that you believed in me，and that you thought I could do well in track, so I wanted to try it for that reason.” From then on, I often remember my student?s reply．I told it to a friend and she suggested I write it down to share somewhere with more teachers. No matter how critical (不满的)students can be of themselves．I've found that a simple “I trust that you can do it!” can go a long way! 21. According to Paragraph l，the author seems to think more about John?s . A. PE marks B. self-confidence C. interest in sports D. state of health 22. Why did John take part in the track team? A. He had been an excellent runner． B. He was encouraged by his teacher． C. He liked running more than tennis D. He had no tennis coach to train him 23. The purpose of this passage is probably . A. to build a close teacher-student relationship B. to introduce a new way of sports training C. to explain the value of sports and games D. to show the importance of encouragement 24. The passage is mainly written for A. teachers B. parents C. students D. players B What?s black and white and read all over? Not newspapers, at least not anymore. In fact, if you?re like most young people, you probably don't read the newspaper at all. In one recent survey, just 19 percent of 18-to-34-year-olds say they read a newspaper every day, while 37 percent watch local TV news and 44 percent visit Internet news sites daily. As people turn more and more to new technologies，they turn the pages of newspapers less and less.

“There?s a revolution (革命)in the way young people get news，”says media consultant Merrill Brown. Just a generation (一代人)or two ago，the newspaper was the main way that many people got their news. Now, nearly every home has at least one TV set. There?s high-speed，wireless Internet both at home and in many public places. You no longer have to wait for a bundle of newsprint to arrive on your doorstep every morning. Thanks to new-technology, if you want to know what?s going on in the world，you can get breaking news immediately in more ways than one. So newspapers face a very big challenge. Raised on MTV and video games，today?s kids and young adults want flashy displays，special effects，quick information，and the chance to interact(互 动)in real time，even when they?re reading about serious problems. If newspapers can?t find creative ways to be more than just ink on paper, some experts suggest， they might disappear completely． Traditional newspaper articles are supposed to be read from beginning to end ， lack of interaction. With Web pages，on the other hand，there?s more freedom. You can look through the things you?re interested in，then follow links to other sources. You can join discussion groups，read other people?s opinions on a topic，or start a blog to express your own views. 25. This passage is mainly about A. the disappearing newspaper B. different news sources C. the future of the Internet D. the new-technologies 26. From the survey, we can see that A.

Estee Lauder herself of course. This businesswoman became， for a time, the world?s richest self-made woman Her secret?“I didn?t get there by dreaming about it,” she would say． “I got there by doing it” Estee was born in the early l900s in Queens， New-York Her father ran a hardware (五金器具) store，and from him Estee learned how to be a successful salesperson. Estee learned from her uncle John Schotz，too He made creams in a small laboratory behind the family?s house Estee watched him Soon，she was experimenting with her own cosmetics She put lipstick (唇膏)and creams on any female relative who?d let her, until her annoyed father told her to stop. She married Joseph H. Lauder in l930，and continued her experiments. She would cook dinner for the family, and at the same time，make her face creams. Then she began to sell her products in a Manhattan beauty shop. In l960，Estee began to sell her products in Europe After many tries she succeeded and began
selling her products in some stores in London. But France proved even more difficult. The store Galleries Lafayette refused to sell her products. So Estee “by accident” dropped a bottle of youth dew(香水)on the floor in the cosmetics department. As the scent spread around the store，customers came over and asked to buy it. The store soon began selling Estee?s products. Estee led her company until l982，when her son Leonard took over the business. Until her health worsened in the mid-1990s，she continued to attend the opening of a new store wherever in the world. She died on April 24， 2004. Estee Lauder?s talent as a saleswoman was extraordinary． Her son Leonard said， “There was never anyone who could sell like she could” All who worked for Estee appreciated her special talent. 29.

Estee?s product B. a customer?s praise C. a pleasant smell D. the broken pieces of glass D When the seventeenth-century settlers brought the English language to America, they immediately and necessarily began to adapt (使适应)it to their new environment. These changes were clear early and criticized by some people on both sides of the Atlantic. However, after the Revolution， Americans began to be proud of their own form of English. Noah Webster was the major early supporter of American meanings and spellings over British ones and published the earliest American dictionary, An American Dictionary of the English Language. During the years since Webster, language differences have continued to develop，proving(证明)the truth of George Bernard Shaw?s often-repeated words that the two nations are “divided by a common language”. Like the American language，the earliest American literature(文学)copied English models However, after the Revolution and the War of l 8 12，writers began to create a clear American literature. However, in 1820，Sydney Smith asked the famous question “Who reads an American book?” Answering to this and similar taunts ( 讽刺 )with creative anger, American writers soon produced works that plenty of British people read. Works by Washington Irving， Walt Whitman， and Mark Twain had been acclaimed greatly in Britain by the end of the nineteenth century. Even as American writers got respect in Britain，British writers continued to have great influence in America Charles Dickens went to America twice, in 4842 and l4867-68. Other major British writers w-ho traveled and lived in the United States include D.H . Lawrence and Aldous Huxley．British best works continue to be widely read. The works of William Shakespeare and Jane Austen became popular films. At the turn of the twenty-first century, many books and writers continue to cross the Atlantic in
both directions-made possible by the proud heritage (继承) of the shared language. 33. The author of this passage seems to think A. British English is better than American English B. American English is better than British English C. the same language has divided the two nations D. the same language has connected the two nations 34.

The underlined word “acclaimed” in Paragraph 3 probably means“ ” A. sold B. discussed C. welcomed D. refused 第二节(共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，共 10 分) 根据短文内容，从短文后的七个选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该 项涂黑，选项中有两项为多余选项。 Ten years ago，I used to be very fit 36 I used to play tennis a lot and go for long walks.
