Before being sent away this boy was the brightest student in his class. He was at the top in every competition. He was a champion.
But the boy changed after leaving home and attending the boarding school. His grades started dropping. He hated being in a group. He was lonely all the time. And there were especially dark times when he felt like killing himself. All of this was because he felt worthless and that no one loved him. His parents started worrying about the boy. But even they did not know what was wrong with him. So his dad decided to travel to the boarding school and talk with him. They sat on the bank of the lake near the school. The father started asking him casual questions about his classes, teachers and sports. After some time his dad said, “Do you know son, why I am here today?” The boy answered back, “to check my grades?” “No, no” his dad replied, “I am here to tell you that you are the most important person for me. I want to see you happy. I don?t care about grades. I care about you. I care about your happiness. YOU ARE MY LIFE.” These words caused the boy?s eyes to fill with tears. He hugged his dad. They didn?t say anything to each other for a long time. Now the boy had everything he wanted. He knew there was someone on this earth who cared for him deeply. He meant the world to someone. And today this young man is in college at the top of his class and no one has ever seen him sad! Thanks a lot dad. YOU ARE MY LIFE. 21. The father went to the boarding school to_________. A. know if he was still the best student B. find out what was wrong with his son C. ask some questions about his classmates D. talk with the boy?s teacher about his grades 22. If we say the questions are casual, we mean they are________. A. unimportant B. strange C. special D. difficult 23. Why were the boy?s eyes filled with tears when he heard what his father said? A. Because his father didn?t care about his grades any more. B. Because he hadn?t had a talk with his father for a long time. C. Because he had a chance to say his worries. D. Because he was deeply moved by his father?s words. 24. The passage mainly tells us never to _________. A. send a small boy to a boarding school B. care too much about a student?s grades C. pay no attention to the power of caring D. miss the chance to say thanks to our fathers B If you have seen or heard of the British TV series Downton Abbey, you have probably noticed an “upstairs-downstairs” class system in which the noble people are upstairs, worrying what clothes they should wear for dinner and the poor people are downstairs, working hard to make food and tea. So it?s not hard to tell that people are divided into different classes. British society has changed a lot since the days of Downton Abbey, but the division still exists and the funny accents do, too. Nowadays, what divides Britons is the so-called “North-South divide”. As you make your way north from the south coast of England, the accent begins to change. The posh “How are you” in parts of the South becomes “Ahhdu” (how do you do) in the Midlands, “reeit” (are you alright) in the North West, “eyyup” (what?s up) in Yorkshire, and “hou?s it gaun” (how?s it going) in
Scotland. Besides accents, the economy also changes. The rich southern city of London slowly becomes the North where people generally have less money. So where does the “South” stop being the “South” and the “North” start being the “North”? Well, depending on where someone comes from in Britain, you?ll get a different answer. “Anywhere above London is ?the North?,” you might hear a Londoner say. Or if you?re in Scotland, you might hear, “Southern softer!”, talking about a person from Lancashire or Yorkshire, who think of themselves as “hard (tough) Northerners”. “Anywhere south of Manchester is not northern,” you might hear a person from Manchester say. Many stereotypes (成见) have come from the “North-South Divide”, too. Often, southerners are seen as being rude and snobbish (势利眼的) by northerners. And northerners are often seen as uneducated by southerners. Today, the career you have and the person you marry don?t depend on where you were born or what class you are from. But as London is getting richer and people are moving to the South for work, the North-South divide is getting bigger. Yet for all that divides us, the truth is, we couldn?t live without each other! 25. The first paragraph serves to _________. A. compare the lives of upstairs with those of downstairs B. explain how the class system worked in the past C. attack the unfair class division D. introduce the topic of the passage 26. People from North West greet each other by saying _________. A. “hou?s it gaun” B. “reeit” C. “eyyup” D. “ahhdu” 27. From Paragraph 4 we get to know _________. A. Scotlanders think Londoners are not strong enough B. Manchester people think Scotland belongs to the South C. Manchester people regard themselves as Northerners D. there is no such thing as “North-South Divide” 28. What is the passage mainly talking about? A. British accents are different from North to South. B. Class division is getting smaller at present. C. It is about the “North-South Division” and its influence. D. Northerners and Southerners dislike each other in Britain. C Everyone talks about the greenhouse effect and how our Earth and its climate are being affected（影响）. We can do a science experiment designed by some kids to show this effect and what is happening to the Earth. First prepare the following items: ●2 glass containers that need to be the same size and shape ●1 gallon plastic bag ●4 cups of very cold water ●Ice cubes（冰块） Fill each container with two cups of cold water. Add the same amount of ice cubes to each container. Then put one of the containers in the plastic bag and close it tight. Put both containers in the sun together and keep them there for at least an hour. At the end of one hour remove the container from the plastic bag and immediately check the
temperature of the water. After you record this, find out the temperature of the water that is not covered. When you place the containers in direct sunlight, the air inside the bag becomes very warm. The heat filters (渗入) in but cannot escape so it stays in the closed plastic bag and increases the temperature. What if you leave that for two, three or four hours? Think about what is happening to the Earth. There are chemicals that are creating a type of plastic bag around the Earth. It causes our air to get warmer because of the heat from the sun being kept in this closed area. Think about your car in the hot summer. This is what happens when you leave your car outside all day. This greenhouse effect has caused your car to be so hot that you sometimes cannot even touch the steering wheel（方向盘）. This science project goes to show what affects our planet. 29. According to the text, the greenhouse effect appears mainly because of ________. A. the hot sunlight B. chemicals around the Earth C. the plastic bag D. human activities 30. Which of the following shows the right order of steps for the science project? a. Measure the water which is not covered. b. Make preparations for the project. c. Fill each of the two glass containers with two cups of cold water. d. Put one container in a plastic bag and close it tight. e. Put the two containers in the sun for at least one hour. f. Measure the water which is covered with a plastic bag. A. b e d c a f B. b e c d f a C. b c e d a f D. b c d e f a 31. If the story appears in a newspaper, the best title might be “________”. A. An Interesting Experiment Done by Kids B. How to Protect Our Precious Planet C. Bring Home the Seriousness of Greenhouse Effect D. The Greenhouse Effect Has Been Proved by Kids D What Is Self-tracking All about Have you ever monitored something about yourself? Perhaps you?ve tracked how many kilometers you?ve run, how many hours you?ve slept or how many calories you?ve eaten in a day. If so, you?ve taken part in a movement called the “Quantified Self Movement.” Individuals gather information about their daily activities in this popular movement, also called self-tracking. This may sound difficult, but technology is making the process easier. Perhaps you?ve wanted to change a bad habit but couldn?t. Self-tracking may be your answer. The idea is to take information about your everyday activities and analyze them to help form a healthier lifestyle. Recently, tools such as smartphones, journals and apps, along with newly published wearable things, are making self-tracking extremely easy. Today, one can use Fitbit, the Jawbone Up, Google Glass or a smart watch to record personal data including sleeping hours, stress levels, heart rate and mood. So why does a person self-track? Someone may be trying to lose weight or improve their sleep patterns. Another person feels tired after eating. Self-tracking could help him to know what foods make him sleepy and watch his diet.
Monitoring daily activities isn?t a new concept. In years past, athletes and their coaches kept notes detailing nutrition, training and sleep patterns in order to achieve an athletic goal. Similarly, doctors have also helped patients to record parts of their lifestyles and eating habits to help fight allergies, headaches and other health problems. However, it wasn?t until 2007 that magazine editors Gary Wolf and Kim Kelly, who started tracking every move they made, coined the term “Quantified Self.” Wolf says that the new tools will change our sense of self with the purpose of making us more effective in the world. Although self-tracking has many advantages, Dennis Nash, president of Data Speaks Health Solutions, says self-tracking has its drawbacks. Once people start tracking their daily activities, it can become an addition people like to do often. Also, they might begin to worry too much about their health. While self-tracking doesn?t guarantee that one?s quality of life will improve, it can highlight the importance of eating well and exercising daily. After all, the Quantified Self Movement?s focus is motivating people to apply enough energy to make healthier choices. 32. People choose self-tracking because _______. A. it collects personal data and leads to self-improvements B. it records how many hours you sleep a day C. it watches your eating habits D. it increases your movement 33. The writer mentions tools such as smartphones and apps in Paragraph 4 to show _______. A. we depend too much on them B. it is easier to do self-tracking C. they do harm to people?s health D. equipment is necessary to do self-tracking 34. Self-tracking was firstly put forward by _______. A. scientists of Data Speaks Health Solutions B. athletes and their coaches C. doctors and their patients D. two magazine editors 35. You can find this article in the part of _______. A. Education B. Entertainment C. Health D. News 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。 We are all called upon to make a speech at some point in life, but most of us don?t do a very good job. 36 So, you have to give a speech and you are terrified. You get nervous, you forget what you want to say, you stumble over words, you talk too long, and you bore your audience. Later you think, “Thank Goodness, it?s over. I?m just not good at public speaking. I hope I never have to do that again.” Cheer up! 37 Here are some simple steps to take the pain out of speech making. Ask yourself the purpose of your speech. What is the occasion? Why are you speaking? Then, gather as many facts as you can on your subject. Spend plenty of your time doing your research. Then spend plenty of your time organizing your material so that your speech is clear and easy to follow. Use as many examples as possible, and use pictures, charts, and graphs if they help you make your points more clearly. 38 Don?t talk over their heads, and don?t talk down to them. Treat your audience with respect. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness. Just remember: Be prepared. Know your subject, your audience, and the occasion. Be
brief. 39 And be yourself. Let your personality come through so that you make person-to-person contact with your audience. If you follow these simple steps, you will see that you don?t have to be afraid of public speaking. In fact, you may find the experience so enjoyable that you volunteer to make more speeches! You?re not convinced yet? 40 A. It doesn?t have to be that bad. B. Take several deep breaths before your speech. C. This article gives some advice on how to give good speech. D. Say what you have to say and then stop. E. Don?t say what you aren?t familiar with. F. Never forget your audience. G. Give it a try and see what happens. 第三部分：语言知识运动（共两节，满分 45） 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，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出可以填入空白 处的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 Where the heart is?

You know, I have been missing you since you left, so I hope to see you in Beijing after the English contest. I can’t wait to see you again! Yours Sincerely, Li Hua
