No matter whether you're looking for big international events, delicious food, natural wonders or simply relaxation on a beach, these places should be on your checklist. Brazil Attractions: Festivities for the 2014 World Cup the world is casting its eye on Brazil for hosting two of the most popular
sporting events - the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the Summer Olympics two years after. Except-for watching exciting games and cheering for your favorite team and players, you can also take a trip to 'the lungs of the earth', the Amazon forest, to escape the crowds and embrace nature. Belgium Attractions: Europe's underrated gem Many grand and spectacular museums are located in picturesque cities like Bruges, Antwerp and Brussels. Art lovers can fully engage themselves in the numerous treasures dating back to the medieval period. Exploring the quiet towns and appreciating their Gothic architecture is also an opportunity not to be missed. Seychells Attractions: Paradise within reach This is so-called 'playground for millionaires' is open to everyone. The wallet-friendly hotels, guest houses and self-catering apartments make tours comfortable. With more than l00 divine islands scattered on the Indian ocean, many activities await, such as sunbathing, fishing, diving, sailing, and going on boat tours. The Seychelles islands are blessed with a warm tropical climate all year round, so you can go there whenever you want. 21. The 1st paragraph aims to tell us _ . A. what you can expect from a trip B. how to find a place to holiday C. what this passage is really about D. what to do on a holiday trip 22. If you visit Brazil in 2014, you can . A. watch the Summer Olympics B. enjoy medieval treasures in museums C. take a trip to the Amazon forest D. cook your own food in a guest house 23. Which of the following has the closest meaning with wallet-friendly? A. cheap B. attractive C. expensive D. affordable B A new retail phenomenon from Japan which allows customers to walk away with free products is to launch in Britain. From tomorrow, visitors to Sample Trend's central London store can try anything on its shelves, and all of the products can be taken home without charge. For an annual membership fee of ~60, users are free to enter the shop once a month and help themselves to no less than ~250 worth of goods every year. The only 'catch' is that shoppers are asked to complete a simple questionnaire about each product they try. Known as ' try-vertising ' , the concept allows manufacturers to test products and receive consumer feedback(反馈) before launching onto the open market. It is already a sensation in Japan and now looks set to transform the fortunes of the embattled UK retail industry. If everything goes well, countries such as Germany and France will give it a try. According to new figures, stores are facing a Christmas crisis with the weakest high street trading for six months. Michael Ghosh, the founder behind Sample Trend, said, "The concept behind Sample Trend is unique in the UK. It allows shoppers the opportunity to walk away with a number of real, full-size products of their choosing without handing over a penny." The concept of in-store try-vertising is simple but effective. Businesses across all sectors, from
cosmetic manufacturers to beverage makers, place new products on the shelves at Sample Trend and wait for consumers to try them out. Customers complete a short l0-point questionnaire about the product. The feedback they provide is used to make any finishing touches before the product is brought officially to market. The Sample Trend store stocks everything from cosmetics, food and drink, and household goods. Ghosh , the former advertising and sales director for Disney Europe, said such feedback may also build brand loyalty from the outset--- a particularly appealing prospect for new businesses. 24. The most attractive part of the idea for customers is that _ . A. they only pay ? 60 for a life-long membership B. they can help to make the products better C. it won't take much time to finish the questionnaire D. they can take things home without paying for them 25. The idea of 't ry-vertising' originates from _ . A. Germany B. Britain C. Japan D. France 26. The purpose of 'try-vertising' is to _ . A. get feedback for their new products B. sell more products at Christmas time C. encourage people to buy more products D. give customers free products as gifts 27. What does Michael Ghosh think of this business idea? A. Puzzling. B. Unpractical. C. Promising. D. Surprising. C We are much happier in our new house because it has a large garden, and you know how enthusiastic we both are about gardening. When we moved in a month ago, Mary wanted to get a dog to keep out burglars. However, we finally decided that it would be cheaper to put an iron grille in front of the door and get a burglar alarm. Last week, I went to a shop and bought an alarm for just over ? 200. It consists of a control unit with three smaller units. I put the control unit in the lounge and put the other units in place by the front door, back door and lounge windows. That night I soon fell asleep because I was confident that no one could get into OUR house undetected. At about l:50 a.m. I woke up suddenly and heard the siren. It was like an ambulance driving right through our bedroom. I couldn't leave the siren on all night. I went downstairs in the dark. When I reached the bottom of the stairs, I switched on the light and looked around. Oh my gosh. The back door was unlocked. I rushed to lock it and it was just at that exact moment that the 'burglar' disappeared behind a curtain. Guess what? It was an ordinary house lizard(蜥蜴). Apparently the ' alarm system had been made for American or European homes in which lizards are never seen. I switched the alarm off and sat down to watch. A few moments later, a lizard ran across a wall, right in front of one of the alarm units. I won't bother to finish this story but if you'd like a burglar alarm system free of charge, just let us know. 28. What do we know about the author and his wife? A. They are pet lovers. B. They love plants and flowers.
C. They are fond of catching lizards. D. They hate technology. 29. What happened after they got the alarm system? A. It worked unexpectedly. B. It did not work. C. A burglar' broke into the house. D. Their neighbors complained about it. 30. What will the author do after the incident? A. He will sell the alarm to someone else. B. He will buy a dog to keep our burglars. C. He will fix the alarm system immediately. D. He will file a complaint to the company. 31. How does the author sound when telling the story? A. Curious. B. Anxious. C. Cautious. D. Humorous. D Taller men and women are more likely to develop cancer than their shorter peers, according to a major study that sheds new light on the link between height and the disease. Researchers in Sweden found the risk of women developing cancer of any kind rose by 18% for every extra l0cm of height, while for men the risk rose by 11% although height is not as great a risk for cancer as smoking, overweight and a poor diet. Dr Emelie Benyi of the Karolinska Institute, who led the research, said there were several possible reasons for the link. "One is that taller people have a larger number of cells in their body which could potentially transform to cancer. It could also be that taller individuals have a higher energy intake which has previously been linked to cancer." . The study analyzed data on 5.5 million people born between 1938 and 1991, with heights ranging from l00cm (3ft 3in) to 225cm (7ft 6in). Assessing the impact of height on developing different forms of cancer, they found the increased risk was highest in skin cancer, rising 30% for every l0cm in height. They observed a 20% increase in the risk of taller women getting breast cancer. The Swedish researchers did not look at possible confusing factors such as smoking in their study, but the size of the sample and the good quality data meant that it could be taken seriously even though the full results have not been published, other scientists said. The early results of the study, conducted by scientists from the Karolinska Institute and University of Stockholm, were presented at the annual European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology conference in Barcelona and will be published in full in due course. 32. What's the most surprising message from the text? A. Cancer is a deadly disease that has killed many people. B. Smoking, overweight, or a poor diet can lead to cancer. C. Growing taller increases the danger of getting cancer. D. Men are more likely to get cancer than women. 33. According to the research findings, who is most likely to get cancer? A. Mary, female, 180cm. B. John, male, 190cm.
C. Tina, female, 200cm. D. Bob, male, 200cm. 34. How many possible reasons does the passage give for this phenomenon? A. 1. B．2． C．3． D.4． 35. From the last two paragraphs we can infer that A. the author doesn't really take the research findings seriously B. the final result of the study may go against what is known now C. scientists have different opinions about the study D. more facts are expected from the full result of the study 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。 I have often heard people saying that English is an easy language to learn. 36 Many speakers of languages are proud to say that their language is one of the hardest of all. But is this true? 37 It depends on many things; Chinese, for example, has no tense, but it has a writing system that is very different from the systems used in English. 38 With English, I feel that it is an easy language to pick up at the start. 39 this might be because it seems not to have the complexity and abundance of grammatical rules that many languages have. 40 Having mastered the basics of English, many students then find it hard to reach the very high levels, because there are so many exceptions to everything and so many funny little rules. All in all, I'd say it is easy to begin with, but it gets a lot harder down the path. If your goal is to reach fluency, then English is not an easy language. A.I have also heard that Chinese is the most difficult. B. It has an enormous vocabulary. C. However, this is also one of its difficulties. D. One thing might be harder, but another is simpler. E. It depends on how close the language is to your own. F. Many students can start speaking it fairly quickly. G. Are some languages harder than others? 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给四个选项（A.
