In France You’ll find that conversations often turn into heated debates. Give opinions only on subjects that you are knowledgeable about. There is rarely a moment of silence, except when the topic under discussion has been exhausted, and nothing new has been introduced. Food, art, music and current events or history are welcome topics. French believe in freedom, and you can criticize anyone, but not Napoleon, who is a symbol of French spirit and never use the standard. U.S. conversation opener “What do you do”. In Australia Australians tend to be enthusiastic debaters. A wide range of topics may be open to discussion, including religion and politics. The best policy, however, is to wait for Australian companions to bring up these two subjects; be prepared to hear their arguments. Sport is a common topic of conversation in Australia and Australians tend to use sporting comparisons. Australians like to criticize themselves, but they can’t stand criticism from others. Don’t talk big；instead Australians prefer to judge your competence and abilities through your actions. People who show off their education in conversation may be subject to teasing.

B．How to argue with foreigners C．Things that can’t be talked with foreigners D．How to adapt to the life in western countries B Margaret recognized that her son Andrew needed the steady influence of a man in his life, even though Andrew, an only child, enjoyed a healthy relationship with his mom—a former soldier in the U.S. Army and now a cook at the Naval Academy. Andrew’s dad died when he was only 9 years old.That was when Margaret called Big Brothers Big Sisters, shortened to BBBS, known in America as a charitable organization which matches adult volunteers to children needing adult mentoring. Big Brothers Big Sisters found the perfect match when they paired Andrew with John, an insurance broker (保险经纪人). John first became interested in Big Brothers Big Sisters through a colleague who was a board member of the local organization. According to John, “It’s more than what I hoped for, it’s one of the best things in my life and I highly recommend it to others.” John, the product of a single Mom household, understood the importance he could have in Andrew’s life. John and Andrew frequently hike the paths and trails surrounding where they live. Little Brother Andrew, a self-claimed science fan, can name just about every tree and plant—including being able to identify which trees and plants are native. With John’s help, Andrew even became one of the few Boy Scouts in the country to complete every activity in his handbook. According to Margaret, she has seen a remarkable change in Andrew since his first meeting with John. “I understand that at age 11 Andrew is still finding himself. However, he is communicating much better and is more confident when speaking.” Andrew has even decided he wants to follow in his parent’s footsteps and join the military one day. Margaret is grateful that Andrew has respect for John and what he says. The most important recognition comes from Andrew himself who says, “? we will be friends forever!” 45. How many years ago did Andrew get to know John? A. One B. About two C. Three D. Unknown 46. John can really understand Andrew’s situation mainly due to_________. A. his experience of living once in a single-parent family B. his experience of working as a insurance broker C. his good understanding of adolescent D. Andrew’s respect for him and what he says. 47. According to the passage, which statement is true? A. Margaret called BBBS to find Father for his son B. John found BBBS from a local organization himself and joined in it. C. Margaret and her son both admire what BBBS has done for them. D. Andrew will become an insurance broker in the future, too 48.From the passage we can infer that BBBS is_________.
A. a profit-making organization to help children with the guidance of adult volunteers B. a non- profit organization to help those in need of the guidance of volunteers C. a profit-making organization recognized by all for what it has done for children D. a non-profit organization to help kids with the guidance of adult volunteers C My Grandmother was from a town in Michigan. She was always using her hands for something exciting ... she would make little sandwiches and we'd have tea parties, she'd plant flowers and carefully tend them. She'd knit toy sweaters for her grandchildren as well as making beautiful quilts for each one. I remember the small thimble (顶针）she would use while doing her needle work. Placing her thimble on her finger she'd remark，“ I wouldn't want to sew without one. ” A few years ago when Grandma left this earth, I bid farewell to a loving grandmother. How quickly our lives can change. We had just had tea together a couple of months earlier, on her 91st birthday. I missed her very much, but I noticed it mostly on a birthday, as there was no card from Grandma. She'd never forgotten my birthday ！ On one particular birthday, when I was feeling a little low and a lot older, something happened to make me feel like she was sharing that special day with me. I was arranging some colorful pillows that she had made, and suddenly I felt something inside one pillow, it was small and hard. I moved the object to a seam (接缝）that I carefully opened, and to my delight out came a tiny silver thimble! How happy I was to find something that had been a part of her. Not realizing it had fallen off her finger, I pictured her sewing it in that little pillow that I just “happened，，to place on my bedspread that day, I carefully laid the thimble alongside the others I've collected over the years, where I could continue to see the gift. What a precious memory of a very special lady who somehow，I knew, was laughing in delight at sewing her thimble inside my pillow. I heated the tea kettle and made some tea，using my best china，as Grandma always did，and enjoyed my tea and Grandma's thimble. What a wonderful birthday that was! 49. The underlined word “one” refers to _____. A. a sweater A. Lucky. B. a quilt B. Cheerful. C. a finger C. Sad. D. a thimble D. Puzzled. 50. How did the writer feel when she found the thimble? 51. The writer wrote the passage to _ _____. A. celebrate the writer's birthday C. show her love for Grandmother 52. What is the best title for the passage? A. Grandma's Thimble C. My Childhood B. Colorful Pillows D. Grandma's 91st Birthday D Nowadays more and more people are trapped in too busy work to relax themselves. We have no time to tell a B. remind the writer of her sweet childhood D. call on people to care for the old
bed-time story to our children, or enjoy a nice dinner with our family, or take a break to think about how we live the precious life, or even meet friends. All we notice is that the distinctions that used to guide and steady us— between Sunday and Monday, public and private, here and there—are gone. We have more ways to communicate, but less and less to say. Partly because we're so busy communicating. Maybe that's why more and more people I know, even if they have no religious commitment, seem to be turning to yoga, or meditation, or tai chi. Some friends of mine try to go on long walks every Sunday, or to "forget” their cellphones at home. A series of tests in recent years has shown that after spending time in quiet rural settings, subjects “ exhibit greater attentiveness, stronger memory and generally improved cognition. Their brains become both calmer and sharper,” More than that, sympathy, as well as deep thought, depends on neural processes that are “inherently slow,” the very ones our high-speed lives have little time for. In my own case, I turn to unusual and often extreme measures to try to keep my good sense and ensure that I have time to do nothing at all. I've not yet used a cellphone and I've never tweeted or entered Facebook. I try not to go online till my day's writing is finished, and I moved from Manhattan to rural Japan. None of this is a matter of principle or asceticism (苦行主义)：it's just pure selfishness. Nothing makes me feel better, calmer, clearer and happier than being in one place, absorbed in a book, a conversation, a piece of music. It's actually something deeper than mere happiness： it's joy, which the monk David Steindl-Rast describes as “that kind of happiness that doesn't depend on what happens. ” That is the highest of the highest we have been longing for~The Joy of Quiet. 53. The writer sometimes doesn't do anything because _____. A. he is out of work B. whatever he does make no sense C. he is worried about his writing D. he can enjoy himself in his leisure time 54.When the writer uses the word “forget”，his real meaning is _____ . A.somebody really forgets his cellphone at home B.somebody leaves his cellphone at home on purpose C. somebody hates modern techniques such as the cellphone D. somebody thinks cellphone is not a suitable means of communication 55.The underlined word “distinctions’ ，means_____. A. outcome B. similarity C. difference D. complication 56. What is the main idea of the article? A. It is important to spend time in quiet circumstances. B. We can do some sports such as yoga to relax. C. Principle or asceticism is important in one's life. D. The more we communicate, the more we will be closer. E “Tear them apart!” “Kill the fool!” “Murder the referee (裁判)!” These are common remarks one may hear at various sporting events. At the time they are made, they may seem innocent enough. But let’s not kid ourselves. They have been known to influence behavior in such a way as to lead to real bloodshed. Volumes
have been written about the way words affect us. It has been shown that words having certain connotations (含 义) may cause us to react in ways quite foreign to what we consider to be our usual humanistic behavior. I see the term “opponent” as one of those words. Perhaps the time has come to delete it from sports terms. The dictionary meaning of the term “opponent” is “adversary”; “enemy”; “one who opposes your interests.” “Thus, when a player meets an opponent, he or she may tend to treat that opponent as an enemy. At such times, winning may dominate one’s intellect, and every action, no matter how gross, may be considered justifiable. I recall an incident in a handball game when a referee refused a player’s request for a time out for a glove change because he did not considered them wet enough. The player proceeded to rub his gloves across his wet T-shirt and then exclaimed. “Are they wet enough now?” In the heat of battle, players have been observed to throw themselves across the court without considering the consequences that such a move might have on anyone in their way. I have also witnessed a player reacting to his opponent’s international and illegal blocking by deliberately hitting him with the ball as hard as he could during the course of play. Off the court, they are good friends. Does that make any sense? It certainly gives proof of a court attitude which departs from normal behavior. 57. Which of the following statements best expresses the author’s view? A. Aggressive behavior in sports can have serious consequences. B. The words people use can influence their behavior. C. Unpleasant words in sports are often used by foreign athletes. D. Unfair judgments by referees will lead to violence on the sports field. 58. What did the handball player do when he was not allowed a time out to change his gloves? A. He refused to continue the game. B. He angrily hit the referee with a ball. C. He claimed that the referee was unfair. D. He wet his gloves by rubbing them across his T-shirt. 59. According to the passage, players, in a game, may __________. A. deliberately throw the ball at anyone illegally blocking their way B. keep on screaming and shouting throughout the game C. lie down on the ground as an act of protest D. kick the ball across the court with force 60. What does the author wishes to do to improve the current situation in sports? A. To call on players to use clean language on the court. B. To raise the referee’s sense of responsibility. C. To change the attitude of players on the sports field. D. To regulate the relationship between players and referees. 第二节(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据对话内容， 从对话后的选项中选出能填人空白处的最佳选项， 并将答案填写在本题下 面的横线上。 选项中有两项为多余选项。 —Hello, Mike. How have you been all these days?

That’s not the only thing marking her off from her classmates at Fort Hays State University. She’s 95, and when she graduates on May 12th, it’s believed she’ll become the world’s oldest person to be awarded a college degree. She just loved to learn as a teenager on a Hodgeman County farm, then as a teacher at a one-room school after graduating from high school and later as a farm wife and mother. “Even as I grew older, that enthusiasm for study was still there.” she said. She’s getting offers for television appearances, and reporters show up wanting to interview her. She says she enjoys it. “It brings attention to this college.” She added, “I don’ t think much of my age. It might limit what I can do. As long as I have my mind and health, it’s just a number.” Ochs started taking classes at Dodge City Community College after her husband died in 1972. After taking a class here and there over the years, she was close to having enough hours for an undergraduate degree. Students nod and smile; she’s described as witty (睿智的) , charming and down-to-earth.“Everybody has accepted me, and I feel just like another student,” she said. “The students respect me.” An added joy for Ochs is that her 21-year-old granddaughter, Alexandra Ochs, will graduate with her.
