阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分）
第一节 (共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分) 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中, 选出最佳选项。并在答题卡上 将该选项涂黑． A I travel a lot in my work, and what I dislike about my job is eating alone. It always makes me feel lonely to see others laughing and talking. So, room service for several nights was a better choice for me. After having room service three nights at a hotel in Houston, however, I needed to get out of my room. Although the restaurant opened at 6:30, I arrived at 6:25. The waiter at the front desk made a comment (评论) about my “being there really early”. I explained my dislike of eating alone in restaurants. He then seated me at a lovely table and asked me whether I would mind if he sat down with me for a while. I was glad! He sat and talked with me about his career goals and the difficulty of being at work on nights, weekends and holidays. He said he hadn’t enough time
to be with h is family. After 15 minutes, he saw some customers at the front desk and excused himself. I noticed that before he went to the front desk, he stopped in the kitchen for a moment. Then another waiter came out of the kitchen and had a wonderful chat with me. Before I left that night, some other waiters, even the cook, had come out of the kitchen and sat with me! When I asked for my bill about one hour later, all the people who had sat down with me came over in a big group to my table, and presented me with a red rose. And I cried! What had begun as a lonely night ended as a beautiful experience. 21. The author asked for room service because ______. A. a lot of money would be saved in this way B. he didn’t like to eat with other people around C. he didn’t wanted to be recognized by the waiters D. seeing people laughing and talking made him feel bad 22. From the third paragraph, we can learn that the waiter at the front desk ______. A. knew how to attract more customers to his restaurant B. found it hard to balance his work and his family C. was getting tired of his present job D. had never had such a chance to talk about his worries 23. The author wants to tell us that ______. A. people are actually all lonely in their own way B. restaurants should put the need of customers first C. the kindness of strangers can make you less lonely D. restaurants are full of surprises for lonely people
B Remembering names is an important social skill. Here are some ways to master it. Recite and repeat in conversation. When you hear a person’s name，repeat it. Immediately say it to yourself several times without moving your lips. You could also repeat the name in a way that does
not sound forced or artificial. Ask the other person to recite and repeat. You can let other people help you remember their names. After you’ve been introduced to someone，ask that person to spell the name and pronounce it correctly for you. Most people will be pleased by the effort you’re making to learn their names. Admit you don’t know. Admitting that you can’t remember someone’s name can actually make people relaxed. Most of them will feel sympathy (同情) if you say, “I’m working to remember names better. Yours is right on the tip of my tongue. What is it again?” Use association (联系). Connect each person you meet with one thing you find interesting or unusual. For example ， you could make a mental note: “Vicki Cheng -- tall, black hair.” To strengthen your associations, write them on a small card as soon as possible. Limit the number of new names you learn at one time. When meeting a group of people, concentrate on remembering just two or three names. Free yourself from remembering every one. Few of the people in mass introductions expect you to remember their names. Another way is to limit yourself to learning just first names. Last names can come later. Go early. Consider going early to meetings, parties and classes. Someti mes just a few people show up on time. That’s fewer names for you to remember. And as more people arrive, you can hear them being introduced to others — a review for you. 24. How will most people feel when you try hard to remember their names? A. They will be moved. C. They will be delighted. B. They will be annoyed. D. They will be discouraged.
25. If you can’t remember someone’s name, you may ______. A. tell him the truth C. ask him for pity B. tell him a white lie D. ask others to help you
26. When you meet a group of people, it is better to remember ______. A. all their names B. a couple of names first
C. just their last names 27. What does the text mainly tell us? A. Tips on an important social skill. B. Importance of attending parties. C. How to make use of associations. D. How to recite and repeat names. C
D. as many names as possible
If Confucius( 孔子 )were still alive today and could celebrate his September 28 birthday with a big cake, there would be a lot of candles（蜡烛）. He’d need a fan or a strong wind to help him put them out. While many people in China will remember Confucius on his special day, few people in the United States will give him a passing thought. It’s nothing personal. Most Americans don’t even remember the birthdays of their own national heroes. But this doesn’t mean that Americans don’t care about Confucius. In many ways he has become a bridge that foreigners must cross if they want to reach a deeper understanding of China. In the past twenty years, the Chinese studies programs have gained huge popularity in Western universities. More recently, the Chinese government has set up Confucius Institutes( 孔子学院 ) in more than 80 countries. These schools teach both Chinese language and culture. The main courses of Chinese culture usually included Chinese art, history and philosophy(哲学). Students in the United States, at the same time, are racing(比赛)to learn Chinese. So they will be ready for life in a world where China is an equal power with the United States. Businessmen who hope to make money in China are reading books about Confucius to understand their Chinese customers. So the old thinker’s ideas are still alive and well. Today China attracts the West more than ever, and it will need more teachers to introduce Confucius and Chinese culture to the West. As for the old thinker, he will not soon be forgotten by people in the west, even if his birthday is. 28. The opening paragraph is mainly intended to______.
A. provide some key facts about Confucius B. attract the readers’ interest in the topic C. show great respect for the ancient thinker D. prove the popularity of modern birthday celebrations 29. We can learn from Paragraph 4 that American students______. A. have a great interest in studying Chinese B. take an active part in Chinese competitions C. try to get high scores in Chinese exams D. fight for a chance to learn Chinese 30. W hat is the best title for the passage? A. Forgotten Wisdom in America B. Huge Fans of the Chinese Language C. Old Thinker with a Big Future D. Chinese Culture for Westerners D A student was one day taking a walk with his teacher. As they went along, they saw a pair of old shoes lying in the path. They were a poor farmer’s, who was working in the nearby field. The student turned to the teacher, saying: “we will hide his shoes, and hide ourselves behind those trees, and wait to see what he will do.” “My young friend,” answered the teacher, “we should never make fun of the poor. Why not put a coin in each shoe, and then we will hide ourselves and watch?” The student did so and they both hid themselves behind the trees. The poor man soon finished his work, and came across the field to the path where he had left his coat and shoes. After putting on his coat, he put his foot into one of his shoes, and felt something hard. Then he bent (弯 腰) down to feel what it was, and found the coin. Surprised, he looked at the coin, turned it around and looked at it again. He then looked around, but no person was seen. He put the money into his pocket, and continued to put on the other shoe. His surprise was doubled on finding the other coin. He couldn’t control his feelings and fell to his knees, looked up to the sky and
expressed his thanks. Then he spoke of his wife, sick and helpless, and his children without bread. He said the help would save them from dying. The student stood there deeply moved, and his eyes filled with tears. “Now,” said the teacher, “are you not much happier than if you had hidden the shoes?” 31. When the student saw the shoes, he wanted to _____. A. steal them C. play a joke on the owner B. find their owner D. give the owner some money
32. According to the passage, the teacher is _____. A. quiet and honest C. patient and clever B. kind and friendly D. strict and careful
33. When the farmer saw the second coin, he _____. A. was very excited and grateful B. was worried and looked up at the sky C. was surprised and decided to find the owner D. spoke of his difficulties and asked for more help 34. At the end of the story, the student _____. A. was very proud of himself B. was very pleased with hi s life C. felt very sorry about his first idea D. felt sad for not taking his teacher’s advice 35. What can we learn from the passage? A. It is never too late to learn. B. All good things come to an end. C. Where there is a will, there is a way. D. True happiness comes from helping others. 第二节(共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Taking good notes is a time-saving skill that will help you to become a better student in several ways. __36__ Second, your notes are excellent materials to refer to when you are studying for a test.

Dear Diary, Here I am in the middle of a city, 350 miles far away from our farmhouse. Do you want to know why 去掉 far we move last week? Dad lost his job, and as Mom explained, “He is lucky to find other one.” His new moved another
job meant I had to say goodbye to my classmate, my school and just everything else I love in the world. classmates To make things bad, now I have to share a room to my younger sister, Maggie. Tomorrow is ∧first
day of school. I am very tiring, but I know I’ll never fall asleep. tired Good night or remember, you, dear diary, is my only souvenir of my past life and my only friend. and are Yours, Rosemary 1.【答案】去掉 far 【解析】首先，far away from 不能与数词连用。因为 far 的意思就是表示抽象的“远”，而 数字则是表 示具体的距离，连用的话意思上是有冲突了。 2.【答案】move 改成 moved 【解析】时态错误。本句宾语从句中出现过去的时间状语 last week，故句子的谓语应用一般 过去时。 3.【答案】other 改成 another 【解析】不定冠词错误。本句句义：他找到了另外一份工作，很幸运。这里的 one 指代 job。 “另一份工作”another job，another one。other 指单数名词时，只用于 the other one（两 者中的“另一个”），另外，other+复数名词，表示“其他的（复数名词概念）” 。 4.【答案】classmate 改成 classmates 【解析】名词的单复数错误。本句中，I had to say goodbye to my?的含义为“我不得不 跟我的同学们说再见”。这里很明显为复数概念。 5.【答案】or 改成 and 【解析】连词错误。or 和 and 都可以用作并列连词，区别是 and 用于肯定句中，or 用于否定 句中。这里显然为肯定句。 6.【答案】bad 改成 worse 【解析】固定短语错误。to make matters worse 为固定短语，意为“更糟糕的是”，常用于 插入语。 7.【答案】增加 the/ my。一般情况下，可数名词单数出现时，其前必须有冠词、形容词性物 主代词等。这里因为中心名词 day 之前出现了序数词 first，所以可以为 the first day（第
一天），也可以为 my first day（我的第一天）。 8.【答案】tiring 改成 tired 【解析】表示“令人??”和“感到??”意义的两类形容词的误用。前者-ing 形式（为现 在分词转化为形容词），后者为-ed 形式（为动词的过去分词转化为形容词）。前者主语一般 为物，后者主语一般为人。 9.【答案】sleep 改成 asleep 【解析】词性错误。sleep 的词性为名词或动词，asleep 的词性为表语形容词（只用于作表 语或用作补语）。这里，fall asleep 为固定短语，意为“睡着了”，fall 为半系动词。 10.【答案】is 改成 are 【解析】主谓一致错误。分析本句，主语为 you，dear diary 为同位语，系动词（谓语）应 与主语相一致，即为 you are。
