Dear Malia and Sasha, I know that you’ve both had a lot of 36 these last two years during the campaign,
going to picnics and parades and state fairs, eating all sorts of junk food your mother and I probably shouldn’t have let you have. But I also know that it hasn’t always been easy for you and Mom, and that although you are both excited about that new puppy(幼犬), it doesn’t 37 for
all the time we’ve been apart. I know 38 I’ve missed these past two years, and today I want to tell you a little more about why I decided to take our family on this journey. When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me--about how I’d 39 my way in

my heart and light up my day. I soon found that the greatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours. That’s why I ran for President: because of what I want for you and for every child in this nation. I want all our children to go to schools 42 of their potential---schools that challenge 43 about the world around
them, inspire them, and instill （灌输） in them a sense of them. I want them to have the chance to go to college 44

technologies and inventions that improve our lives and make our planet cleaner and safer. And I want us to push our own human boundaries to reach 46 the divides of race and region,

me the opening lines of the Declaration of Independence and telling me about the men and
women who marched for __49 centuries ago should mean 50 .
because they believed those words put to paper two
She helped me understand that America is great not because it is perfect but because it can always be made better and that the unfinished work of perfecting our union __51___ to each of us. It’s a duty we pass on to our children. I hope both of you will take up that work, __52____ the wrongs that you see and working to give others the chances you've had. Not just because you have an obligation to give something back to this country that has given our family so much. But because you have an obligation to yourself. These are the things I want for you--- to grow up in a world with no limits on your dreams and no achievements beyond your reach. And I want every child to have the same 53 to learn
and dream and grow that you girls have. That’s why I’ve taken our family on this great adventure. I am so proud of both of you. I love you 54 you can ever know. And I am grateful
every day for your patience, confidence, ___55___ , and humor as we prepare to start our new life together in the White House.

“The Aeneid” by Virgil Mark first read the Aeneid while he was studying Latin in high school, and he recounted the story of Aeneas’s quest and his desire to build a city that, he said, quoting the text in English, “knows no boundaries in time and greatness.” At one of the product meetings, Zuckerberg also quoted some lines from the Aeneid. ----from interview to The New Yorker.
Most schoolchildren know the basics of the Trojan horse, but Virgil outlines all of the intriguing details of myth and legend. While Virgil is no longer around to rejoice at his work's placement on numerous book lists, this unfinished epic poem is still worth a read after nearly 2,000 years of translations.
“Ender's Game” by Orson Scott Card Mark Zuckerberg listed this book as the only one on his Facebook profile. Sensitive parents may not find Card's work to be one of the best books (or most uplifting) for child reading, according to commonsensemedia.org. However, book recommendations from newspapers like The Guardian point out that Ender Wiggins' adventures while training at Battle School (to wipe out war-hungry aliens) include explorations into timeless virtues of courage in the face of peer exclusion. The book's prestigious accolades(荣誉), such as the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award, may make parents think twice about reading the book for themselves - as well as to find out if the themes are damaging to children or not. 56. Where do you think you may read about the above passages? A. In a magazine. B. In a newspaper. C. On a website. D. In a profile. 57. Which of the following has the similar meaning to the underlined word in the first paragraph? A. count again B. relate C. remember D. retell 58. Which of the following is True according to the above passages? A. The Aeneid is written by Orson Scott Card. B. Ender’s Game is about the basics of the Trojan horse. C. Parents all don’t think Card’s work is suitable for children.
D. Mark Zuckerberg recommended Ender’s Game on his Facebook profile.
B A: On today's Words and Their Stories we talk about a common word, a small word, but a word that is completely necessary for human life. In fact, without this simple, everyday material, all humans would die. B: Scientists know it as sodium chloride. We know it as salt. You may think, salt is just a simple cooking element we shake on our food for a little extra taste. But salt is much more than that. A: Without salt our muscles would not move. Our nervous systems would not operate. Our hearts would not beat. Salt means life. But do not think rubbing salt in a wound will help. Doing that would be painful and not heal the wound. To rub salt in a wound is an idiom that means to purposefully make a bad situation worse. B: Early humans got the salt they needed to stay alive from the animals they killed. But advances in agriculture led to a diet low in salt. So, humans needed to find other sources. A: Those who lived near the ocean or other natural sources for salt were lucky. Those who did not had to trade for salt. In fact, people used salt as a method of payment in many parts of the ancient world. The word "salary" comes from the word "salt." B: Salt also played an important part in population movement and world exploration. Explorers understood that if they could keep food fresh, they could travel longer distances. So they used salt to preserve food and explored the world. Salt meant movement. A: Salt also changed the way nations fought. With preserved food on ships, nations could sail to distant lands ... and then attack them. Salt meant power. B: Salt was so important that, according to food historians, it was traded pound-for-pound for gold. Today, people still use the expressions to be worth one's salt or worth one's weight in salt. The expressions describe a person who is useful, a person of value. A: A person might also be called salt of the earth. That description means he or she is dependable and trustworthy. The phrase comes from the Christian Bible. Jesus called his loyal group of followers -- or disciples -- the salt of the earth. B: But one of these disciples was not so loyal. The disciple Judas betrayed Jesus. In his famous painting "The Last Supper," Leonardo da Vinci shows Judas spilling a bowl of salt. Spilled salt is a sign of bad luck and trouble. And trouble is exactly what Judas gave Jesus. A: Even today, some people throw salt over one shoulder if they spill it. They believe throwing salt behind them scares any devil that has been following them -- or at least blinds it for a second while they run away. B: But these stories about bad luck should be taken with a grain of salt. In other words, listen to a story or an explanation with suspicion and distrust. A: But you don't have to take the information you find on VOA Learning English with a grain of salt. We do our research. B: What about your culture? Do you have any idioms or expressions about salt? In the comments
section, share a story of salt from your culture. I'm Jonathan Evans. A: And I'm Anna Matteo. Join us again for another Words and Their Stories. We’ll take a deeper look at the words in American English. 59. You may be exposed to the above passage by ______. A. picking up VOA B. watching TV C. searching the Internet D. receiving BBC 60. How many other meanings does salt have on top of a little extra taste? A. Five. B. Four. C. Three. D. Two. 61. Which of the following is True? A. To rub salt in a wound can make things from good to better. B. If we say somebody is worth his salt, we mean he is significant. C. If you take his adventure story with a grain of salt, you don’t think he is trustworthy. D. If you have bad luck, throwing salt on one shoulder can help. C I hate the new Apple Watch. Hate what it will do to conversation, to the pace of the day, to my friends, to myself. I hate that it will enable the things that already make life so incremental, now-based and hyper-connected. That, and make things far worse. No, my animus for Apple’s smart-watch — excuse me, wearable technology — is for what it will do to us. Things are too complicated as it is. At dinner with friends, or in a meeting that I’m supposed to care about, when can I look at my phone? Who’s phone-ignore worthy, and who’s not? At what point is looking down rude? And how long into a conversation till all sides get to call a truce and take a screen dive? Apple says its smart-watch, which it rolled out at one of its Dear Leader-like events in San Francisco this week, will make interactions between human and screen less complicated, and less rude. Instead of reaching into pocket or purse in front of someone, the user will just glance at the wrist. In fact, Apple calls the new feature in which the watch is touched to access the Internet a ―glance.‖ Just a glance, nothing rude there. Oh, really? Remember how off-putting it was when George Bush the elder checked his watch during a question period from the audience in a presidential debate? It may have cost him the election in 1992. People check their phones about 150 times a day. Now, imagine how many glances they’ll take with all the information in the world on their wrists. Imagine how many people will attempt to drive while glancing, to walk while glancing, to talk while glancing, to make friends while glancing.
To the complaints that our smart-phone addiction has produced a world where nobody talks much anymore, nobody listens and nobody reads, you can add a new one with the smart-phone: nobody makes eye contact. Tim Cook, the Apple C.E.O., seems like a decent and likable guy — no tech overlord in a Darth Vader suit. But his presentation of the new watch on Monday creep me out, and offered a road map to a world I’m not sure I want to join. Cook tried to humanize Apple’s latest culture-disrupter. You can talk to your wrist — it’s a phone! You can check your heartbeat — it’s a doctor! And if you don’t adequately exercise during the week, your watch will remind you of your failure — it’s a nag! There is some evidence that heavy smart phone use makes you dumber. The theory is that a having the world at the other end of a mobile search makes for lazy minds, while people who depend less on their devices develop more analytical skills. Add to this concerns about privacy: that the watch is a tracking device, which sends all your personal information to a central database — a corporate control center that already knows far too much about the preferences and habits of smart phone users. 62. which of the following would be suitable as a title for the passage? A. Digital Dog collar ? B. Apple fans C. Apple makes people incremental D.hate the new apple watch 63. which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Checking his watch during a question period from the audience in a presidential debate made George Bush fail in his election in 1992. B. That people make no eye contact is a new complaints C. Cook has made apple’s latest production humanized D. It’s certain that the use of smartphone heavily makes people sillier. 64. The underlined phrase“animus”can best be replaced by“____”. A. Hostility B.follow C. Ignorance D.rely 65. the last paragraph is intended to tell us that________________? A.We should pay more attention to privacy B.People will get in touch with you by using the tracking device C.Apple user’s personal information will be sent to apple company for analysing D.The corporate control have known all preference and habits of smartphone users D While I was waiting to enter university, I saw in a local newspaper a teaching post advertised at a school in a suburb of London about ten miles from where I lived. Being very short of money and wanting to do something useful, I applied, fearing as I did so, that without a degree and with no experience in teaching, my chances of landing the job were slim. However, three days later a letter arrived, asking me to go to Croydon for an interview. It proved an awkward journey: a train to Croydon station; a ten-minute bus ride and then a walk of
at least a quarter of a mile. As a result I arrived on a hot June morning too depressed to feel nervous. The school was a red brick house with big windows. The front garden was a gravel square; four evergreen shrubs stood at each corner, where they struggled to survive the dust and fumes from a busy main road. It was clearly the headmaster himself that opened the door. He was short and fat. He had a sandy-colored moustache, a wrinkled forehead and hardly any hair. He was wearing a tweed suit—one felt somehow he had always worn it—and across his ample stomach was looped a silver watch-chain. He looked at me with an air of surprised disapproval, as a colonel might look at a private whose bootlaces were undone. “Ah yes,” he grunted. “You’d better come inside.” The narrow, sunless hall smelled unpleasantly of stale cabbage; the cream-printed walls were dirty with ink marks; it was all silent. His study, judging by the crumbs on the carpet, was also his dining-room. “You’d better sit down,” he said, and proceeded to ask me a number of questions: what subjects I had taken in my General School Certificate; how old I was; what games I played; then fixing me suddenly with his bloodshot eyes, he asked me whether I thought games were a vital part of a boy’s education. I mumbled something about not attaching too much importance to them. He grunted. I had said the wrong thing. The headmaster and I obviously had very little in common. The school, he said, consisted of one class of twenty-four boys, ranging in age from seven to thirteen. I should have to teach all subjects except art, which he taught himself. Football and cricket were played in the Park, a mile away on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. The teaching set-up appalled me. I should have to split the class up into three groups and reach them in turn at three different levels; and I was dismayed at the thought of teaching algebra and geometry—two subjects at which I had been completely incompetent at school. Worse perhaps was the idea of Saturday afternoon cricket. I said differently, “What would my salary be?” “Twelve pounds a week plus lunch.” Before I could protest he got to his feet. “Now,” he said, “you’d better meet my wife. She’s the one who really runs this school.” This was the last straw. I was very young: the prospect of working under a woman constituted the ultimate indignity. 66.The author applied for the teaching post because he ____________ . A.wanted to gain some experience in teaching B.had a good mood to move to the suburbs for a change C.needed money and wanted to do something useful D.wanted to get a degree 67. When the author applied for the job,he thought that ___________ . A.it would help him to get a degree B.he had little hope of getting it C.he was the right person for it D.he had a good chance of getting it 68.When the author arrived at the school for the interview,he felt ____________ . A.very confident B.very nervous C.really awkward
D.very low in spirits 69.The headmaster looked at the author disapprovingly ________________ . A.as an officer might look at a carelessly dressed soldier B.because the latter had left his bootlaces undone C.because the latter looked too nervous D.because the latter did not show due respect 70.The author thought that the headmaster used his study as a dining-room because it ____________ . A.smelled of stale cabbage B.had bits of bread on the carpet C.had cream on the walls D.smelled of ink
第 II 卷（非选择题） 第四部分：任务型阅读（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 请认真阅读下列短文， 并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当 的单词。 注意：请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。每个空格只填一个单词。
Whatever your career, and whatever your goals in life are, ideas are going to matter to you.One great idea could change your life.The thing is, you probably don’t have as many great ideas as you’d like. Perhaps you feel unimaginative and unoriginal. You keep hoping that a really good idea will just pop into your head, but that never seems to happen.The good news? Ideas aren’t magic dust sprinkled by the Muses. There’s an awful lot you can do to generate ideas any time you want. First, you need time to come up with ideas – and quality time, where you’re not worrying about the chores or your emails.Getting quality time ideally means taking a whole day away from your regular responsibilities. Go out to a coffee shop with a notebook, or shut yourself in a room at home without internet access. Get a zoomed-out view of your life: set aside worries about ―but what would people think?‖ and ―is it sensible?‖ and let yourself dream.You’ll be amazed what you come up with. Ever had an idea which you immediately dismissed? You probably told yourself ―That’s stupid,‖ or ―It’s been done before.‖When you’re generating ideas and thinking through possibilities, you’ll inevitably come up with a few false starts. Some ideas will be unoriginal, undesirable or unworkable.But that’s not a bad thing. One idea often leads to a whole train of thought – and you might end up with a really good idea from something which seemed, at first glance, unpromising. Although I’m a bit of an introvert – I like to spend a fair amount of time on my own – I also get a great buzz from being with like-minded people and discussing ideas and projects with them.You’ve probably experienced something similar yourself – maybe in a brainstorming
meeting at work, or maybe just at a bar with friends. The energy generated by several people together can spark some brilliant ideas – ones which you’d never have come up with alone.How do you find like-minded people to bounce ideas off? You could try:Local groups, such as evening classes; Getting together with a couple of friends who ―get‖ your dreams; Finding an online forum of people with the same interest or goals as you. Ideas don’t just appear in a vacuum. They’re formed from all the various input that you take in. Sometimes, a news story might give you the perfect idea for a Christmas present for your sister, or a book that you’re reading might get you thinking about a particular goal in your life.The more widely you read, the more open you’ll be to new ideas cropping up. That might mean reading a magazine or journal article that’s far outside your normal area of expertise, or turning to a biography of someone who you know almost nothing about.A great place to start is online: blogs, news sites, forums and even Twitter and Facebook are all a rich source of ideas, just waiting for you. How do you come up with great ideas? And is there a particular area of your life where you feel like you’re lacking inspiration?
How to come up with great ideas—all the time Getting ideal quality time means (72)_____aside worries about your regular (71)_____quality time to think (73)_____ such as the housework or your emails and letting yourself dream for some time. You may come up with some (74)_____ideas. Don’t judge your ideas A(n) (75)_____unimportant ideas might (76)_____ out to be a really good one. So don’t dismiss any unoriginal, undesirable or unworkable ideas (77) ______. Talk to other like-minded people Talking with people who (78) ______ the same interest or goals with you can inspire some brilliant ideas. You can find such people at work, at a bar, in evening classes or on an online forum. Read widely Reading widely helps you put forward new ideas and the Internet is a great place (79) _____ in ideas. Conclusion Whatever your career, and whatever your goals in life are, ideas are of (80) _____ to you.

It is the same with real life. It is really unwise of the student’s practice. Such thought that always comparing without just focusing on the beauty alongside poses a threat on the student’s attitude towards his life choice.

Text 10 M: Mary Ann Allison, suppose the teacher or professor gives you a choice of a topic, a subject, within a given field, what will you do? W: Well, I have a couple of thoughts. The first, if you have any choice at all of a topic, is to do something that you're really interested in, because the more you're interested in it naturally, the better you'll write and the easier it'll be. M: After you have found a subject you think you would like to write about, what comes next? W: Once you've decided on something, another consideration would be how much information you can find. So, if I'm considering a topic, I do spend 10 or 15 minutes looking at information. My purpose is to see if there's enough for me to be able to easily research and write what I want to write. And if there's not, then I might choose something else to write on. And then the next thing that I would do is what I call a back-of-the-envelope outline. M: Back of the envelope, and what is that? W： So that's when I sit down, maybe not at my desk, not at my computer, maybe even at a café, or with a cup of coffee. And I just kind of think about it, and I think about the topic and what I would say to a friend. And I just write down short notes about whatever comes to mind. What would I say to a friend about this? Or, what do I want to know about this? And when I have—oh, I don't know—anywhere between five and 10 points, I stop.
