We were on
the bus then. I was crying, and some people on the bus were turning around to look at me. I remember that I could not bear the thought of never hearing again the radio program for school children to which I listened every morning. I do not remember myself crying for this reason again. In fact, I think I cried very little when I was saying goodbye to my friends and relatives. When we were leaving I thought about all the places I was going to see—the strange and magical places I had known only from books and pictures. The country I was leaving never to come back was hardly in my head then. The four years that followed taught me the importance of optimism, but the idea did not come to me at once. For the first two years in New York I was really lost—having to study in three schools as a result of family moves. I did not quite know what I was or what I should be. Mother remarried, and things became even more complex for me. Some time passed before my stepfather and I got used to each other. I was often sad, and saw no end to “the hard times” ． My responsibilities in the family increased a lot since I knew English better than everyone else at home. I wrote letters, filled out forms, translated at interviews with Immigration officers, took my grandparents to the doctor and translated there, and even discussed telephone bills with company representatives. From my experiences I have learned one important rule：almost all common troubles eventually go away！Something good is certain to happen in the end when you do not give up, and just wait a little！I believe that my life will turn out all right, even though it will not be that easy. 21．Upon leaving for America the author felt ________. A．confused B．excited C．worried D．amazed
22．For the first two years in New York, the author ________. A．often lost her way C．studied in three different schools B．did not think about her future D．got on well with her stepfather
23．What can we learn about the author from Paragraph 4? A．She worked as a translator.
B．She attended a lot of job interviews. C．She paid telephone bills for her family. D．She helped her family with her English. 24．The author believes that ________. A．her future will be free from troubles B．it is difficult to learn to become patient C．there are more good things than bad things D．good things will happen if one keeps trying B I was 9 years when I found out my father was ill. It was 1994, but I can remember my mother's words as if it were yesterday, “Kerrel, I don't want you to take food from your father, because he has AIDS. Be very careful when you are around him.” AIDS wasn't something we talked about in my country when I was growing up. From then on, I knew that this would be a family secret. My parents were not together anymore, and my dad lived alone. For a while, he could take care of himself. But when I was 12, his condition worsened. My father's other children lived far away, so it fell to me to look after him. We couldn't afford all the necessary medical care for him, and because Dad was unable to work. I would sit in class feeling completely lost, the teacher's words muffled as I tried to figure out how I was going to manage. I did not share my burden with anyone. I had seen how people reacted to AIDS. Kids laughed at classmates who had parents with the disease. And even adults could be cruel. When my father was moved to the hospital, the nurses would leave his food on the bedside table, even though he was too weak to feed himself. I had known that he was going to die, but after so many years of keeping his condition a secret, I was completely unprepared when he reached his final days. Sad and hopeless, I called a woman at the nonprofit National AIDS Support. That day, she kept me on the phone for hours. I was so lucky to find someone who cared. She saved my life. I was 15 when my father died. He took his secret away with him, having never
spoken about AIDS to anyone, even me. He didn't want to call attention to AIDS. I do. 25. What does Kerrel tell us about her father? A. He had stayed in the hospital since he fell ill. B. He depended on the nurses in his final days. C. He worked hard to pay for his medication. D. He told no one about his disease. 26. What can we learn from the underlined sentence? A. Kerrel couldn't understand her teacher. B. Kerrel had special difficulty in hearing. C. Kerrel was too troubled to pay attention to the lesson. D. Kerrel was too tired and angry to hear her teacher's words. 27. Why did Kerrel write the passage? A. To tell people about the sufferings of her father. B. To show how little people knew about AIDS. C. To draw people's attention to AIDS. D. To remember her father. C Drinking Water: Bottled or From the Tap? In America, people will include a case or two of bottled water when buying the week's groceries. When they are going to a soccer game or activity, it's common for them to grab a cold bottle of water out of the fridge with them．In fact, Americans buy more bottled water than any other nation in the world, about 29 billion bottles a year． But all these plastic bottles use a lot of fossil fuels and pollute the environment．In order to make all the 29 billion bottles, producers use 17 million barrels of crude oil, which is enough to keep a million cars going for 12 months． So why don't people drink water straight from the tap? Some people have a strong belief that bottled water is better than water out of the tap, but that's not necessarily true． In the US, the local governments make sure water from the tap is safe． There is also growing concern that chemicals in the bottles themselves may go into the water． People love the convenience of bottled water ． But maybe if they realized the
problems it causes, they would try drinking from a glass at home or carrying water in a reusable steel container instead of plastic． Some argue that plastic bottle recycling can help．Recycled bottles can be turned into items like carpeting or clothing．Unfortunately, only one in six bottles is recycled．The rest make it to landfills（垃圾填埋场）or end as trash in other places．Plastic bottles take hundreds of years for them to disintegrate． Water is important for you, so keep drinking it．But think about how often you use water bottles, and see if you can make a change． And yes, you can make a difference． Remember this: Recycling one plastic bottle can save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for six hours． 28. Why do Americans prefer bottled water? A. Bottled water is better than water from the tap． B. Bottled water is cheaper than water from the tap． C. Bottled water contains beneficial chemicals in it． D. Bottled water is more convenient than water from the tap． 29. What does the underlined word "disintegrate" in the fifth paragraph probably mean_____ . A. Be well recycled． C. Break into small pieces． B. Become less poisonous． D. Go down below a surface．
30. The author's intention of writing this passage is to recommend Americans_____. A. drink more water from the tap B. send plastic bottles to landfills C. use water bottles to power light bulls. D. buy bottles filled with water from the tap 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。 The Internet has opened up a whole new online world for us to meet, chat and go where we've never been before.
But just as in face- to- face communication, there are some rules of behavior that should be followed when on line. __31__ Imagine how you'd feel if you were in the other person's shoes. For anything you're about to send: ask yourself, “Would I say this to the person's face？” if the answer is no, rewrite and reread. __32__ If someone in the chat room is rude to you, your instinct (本能) is to fire back in the same manner. But try not to do so. __33__ (logic flow) If it was caused by a disagreement with another member, try to fix the situation by politely discussing it. Remember to respect the beliefs and opinions of others in the chat room. __34__ Offer advice when asked by newcomers, as they may not be sure what to do or how to communicate. When someone makes a mistake, whether it's a stupid question or an unnecessarily long answer, be kind about it. If it's a small mistake, you may not need to say anything. Even if you feel strongly about it, think twice before saying anything. Having good manners yourself doesn't give you license to correct everyone else. __35__ At the same time, if you find you are wrong, be sure to correct yourself and apologize to those that you have offended. It is not polite to ask others personal questions such as their age, sex and marital status. Unless you know the person very well, and you are both comfortable with sharing personal information, don't ask such questions. A. It's natural that there are some people who speak rudely or make mistakes online. B. Repeat the process till you feel sure that you'd feel comfortable saying the words to the person's face. C. Everyone was new to the network once. D. The basic rule is simple: treat others in the same way you would want to be treated. E. When you send short messages to a person online, you must say something
beautiful to hear. F. You should either ignore the person, or use your chat software to block their messages. G. If you do decide to tell someone about a mistake, point it out politely. 第三部分：英语知识运用 第一节： 完形填空 （ 共 20 小题 ； 每小题 1 分， 满分 20 分 ） 阅读下面短文，掌握其大意，然后从 36～55 各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项。 Elizabeth Clay decided to go home and spend the holiday with her parents.

The first grade teacher gave her class ____56____ fun assignment --- to draw a picture of something for ____57____ they were thankful. Most of the class would celebrate the holiday with turkey and other traditional goodies of the season. These, the teacher thought, would be the themes of most of her students’ art. And they were. Douglas made a different kind of picture, __58___. When asked to draw a picture of something for which he was thankful, he drew a hand. Nothing else. Just an ___59_____ hand. His abstract image captured the imagination of his peers. Whose hand could it be? One child guessed it was the hand of a farmer, because farmers raise turkeys. __60____ suggested a police officer’s, because the police protect and care ___61____ people. Still others guessed it was the hand of God, for God feeds us. And so the discussion went ---until the teacher almost forgot the young artist himself. When the children had gone on to other assignments, she stopped at Douglas’ desk, bent down, and asked him __62__ hand it was. The little boy looked away and said, “it’s yours, teacher.” She recalled the times she had taken his hand and walked with him here or there, as she had the other students. How often had she said, “Take my hand, Douglas, we’ll go outside.” Or, “let me show you how to hold your pencil,” Or, “Let’s do this together.” Douglas was most thankful ___63____ his teacher’s hand. Brushing aside a tear, she went on with her work.
The story speaks of more than ____64_____. It says something about teachers teaching and parents parenting and friends showing friendship, and how much it means to the Douglas of the world. They might not always say thanks, __65___ they’ll remember the hand that reaches out. 第四部分 写作 第一节 短文改错（ 共 10 小题 ； 满分 10 分） 文中共有 10 处语言错误，每句中最多有两处。错误涉及一个单词的增加、删除或 修改。 增加：在缺词处加一个漏字符号（∧），并在其下面写出该加的词。 删除：把多余的词作斜线（\）划掉。 修改：在错的词下划一横线 （_____），并在该词下面写出修改后的词。 注意：1．每处错误及其修改均仅限一词；2．只允许修改 10 处 (从第 11 处起不计 分) How are you?
