The impact it makes upon you is huge and life is never quite the same again. My first whale was a 40ft grey, off the coast of California in 1979, and I’ve been a whale addict ever since. Now I have to go whale watching regularly just to survive normal daily life. I may be crazy but I am certainly not alone. The world is filled with whale watchers: since its beginnings in the mid-fifties, whale watching has grown dramatically and now more than 13 million people join organized whale watching trips every year. As a faithful whale watcher, all your holidays center on whales. The only books you read are ones about whales; you wear whale T-shirts, and every time you meet your friends you talk about whales. So what is it about these larger-than-life animals that makes them so special? Their enormous size is one possible explanation: imagine sitting in a small boat next to a blue whale almost as long as a Boeing 737.The fact that we know so little about them is another possibility: modern technology has taken us to the moon and beyond, yet we are only just beginning to understand these extraordinary forms of intelligent life on our own planet. Planning and patience are just two essential requirements for successful whale watching. Planning is needed because there are certain whale hot spots—where you have the best chance of seeing them—and because the larger species tend to be on their way from feeding areas to breeding grounds, so rarely do they stay in one place for more than a few months
at a time. Patience is necessary because, even under the best conditions, whales can be tricky to find. However, most commercial whale watching trips have a surprisingly high success rate because they tend to concentrate on well-known whale populations at peak (最高的) seasons. 21.What is the impact of the author’s first whale in his life? A.He has been crazy ever since. B.He can’t have a normal daily life. C.He has fallen in love with whale watching. D.He has organized watching trips every year. 22.What will a faithful whale watcher do usually? A.Take part in whale forums. B.Wear only whale-themed clothes. C.Join an organization for whale watching every month. D.Pay much attention to whales in the holidays. 23.Why is patience necessary in whale watching? A.Because it is very difficult to find these clever whales. B.Because whales are on their way to breeding grounds. C.Because the watching conditions are not always good. D.Because they have enormous size as big as a Boeing plane. 24.What can be the best title of the passage? A.Tips on Whale Watching B.Memories of Whale Watching C.Whales Are Intelligent Animals D.Essential Requirements for Whale Watching
Our bodies communicate what we feel loudly and clearly. Here are some tips for reading body language so that you can understand what is not being expressed by words. All of these tips are based on American interpretations (解释), so not all the body language here means the same in different cultures. A Cold Shoulder Is Really Cold I was meeting a friend and her husband. We were discussing our business. When the husband brought up an annoying topic that my friend didn’t want to discuss, she unknowingly turned her shoulder away from her husband. She didn’t notice what she had done, but he got the message and changed the topic. An Eye for an Eye In the US, we expect people to look us in the eyes when they are talking to us. In a crowded elevator or on the street, someone that makes eye contact with you wants to start a conversation with you. If you are talking and don’t want to be interrupted (打断), look away at the end of a sentence. Eye movements help you control a conversation. On the other hand, if you want to talk and the speaker doesn’t give you the chance, stare at him and fix your eyes on him for a while. He will stop talking and let you speak. You’ve Got to Hand It to Them
Prince Charles often stands with his hands held together behind his back. This posture expresses a sense of superiority (优越), confidence and power. When the hands are held together in front of one’s body, the posture means a need for protection or help. 25. From the passage, we learn that _________. A. our bodies can show most of our feelings B. Americans are good at using body language C. body language has no country limits D. body language may mean differently in different places 26. What did the author’s friend do when her husband brought up an annoying topic? A. She began to discuss business. B. She showed her husband a cold shoulder. C. She interrupted her husband rudely. D. She tried to change to another topic. 27. If a man makes eye contact with you in an elevator, it shows that he ___________. A. would like to talk to you B. is likely to control the conversation C. feels that you are dangerous D. is hoping to stop you talking 28. Who would most probably hold his hands together in front of his body according to the passage? A. A confident prince. C. A missing child. B. An armed soldier. D. An old artist.
C(原创) DEAR AMY: We recently had to put our cat down. It came out of the blue. We had no idea that he had health problems, and we woke up early one morning to the cat crying out painfully. We immediately rushed him to the vet’s where the vet said that at best treatment might lengthen his life by two to three months. We did not want to see him suffer, so we chose to kill the cat in a painless way. I am having a rough time! I cry when I am alone. I cry when I see pet commercials on television. I put away everything that reminds me of the cat. But the last sight of seeing the cat in pain plays over and over in my head. My kids seem alright with what has happened, but why am I struggling? It has only been one week since his passing, so I hope things will get better. Do you have any suggestions? Yours, Sad DEAR SAD: There is no loss quite like the loss of a pet; these animals keep us company through important life passages and are beloved witnesses to our human lives. I understand your instinct to put away all of your cat’s things, but it may help you now to memorialize your pet by using these things. Each
family member can write down favorite things about him or memories of him; read their memories aloud and put the papers inside his bowl. The idea is to replace those painful last memories with much more lively memories taking place over the most of the animal’s life. Time will then do its job, which is to affect your feelings. And then, when you’re ready, I hope you will adopt another animal and give it the opportunity to share your life. Yours, Amy 29.Which of the following made the author’s family choose to kill the cat in a painless way? A.The cat had changed its color. B.The vet himself had no way to save its life. C.The family wouldn’t see it suffer in its later life. D.The cat suffered so much that it could die at any time. 30.What does the underlined phrase mean in Paragraph 1? A.In the color of blue. B.Very sadly. C.All of a sudden. D.With much pain. 31.What do we know from the last paragraph of Amy’s letter? A.The longer it is, the less you will feel sad about your pet. B.It is important to find a new pet as soon as possible. C.As time goes on, you will feel more sorrow about your pet. D.One can’t live a happy life without a pet around him.
Scientists find that hard-working people live longer than average men and women. Career women are healthier than housewives. Evidence shows that the jobless are in poorer health than jobholders. An investigation shows that whenever the unemployment rate increases by 1%, the death rate increases by 2%. All this comes down to one point, wor k is helpful t o health. Why is work good for health? It is because work keeps people busy away from loneliness. Researches show that people feel unhappy, worried and lonely when they have nothing to do. Instead, the happiest are those who are busy. Many high achievers who love their careers feel that they are happiest when they are working hard. Work serves as a bridge between man and reality. By work people come into contact with each other. By collective activity they find friendship and warmth. This is helpful to health. The loss of work means the loss of everything. It affects man spiritually and makes him ill. Besides, work gives one a sense of fulfillment and a sense of achievement. Work makes one feel his value and status in society. When a writer finishes his writing or a doctor successfully operates on a patient or a teacher sees his students grow, they are happy beyond words. From the above we can come to the conclusion that the more you work the happier and healthier you will be. Let us work hard and study hard and live a happy and
healthy life. 32. The underlined word “average” i n Paragraph 1 means ______. A. healthy B. lazy C. ordinary D. poor 33. The reason why housewives are not as healthy as career women is that ______. A. housewives are poorer than career women B. housewives have more children than career women C. housewives have less chance to communicate with others D. housewives eat less food than career women 34. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to Paragraph 2? A. Busy people have nothing to do at home. B. High achievers don’t care about their families.
C. There is no friendship and warmth at home. D. A satisfying job helps to keep one healthy. 35. The best title for this passage may be _____. A. People Should Find a Job B. Working Hard Is Good for Health C. People Should Make More Friends by Work D. The Loss of Work Means the Loss of Everything 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。选项两项 为多余选项。
Finnish Translation: Be Aware of False Friends（原创） False friends, those tricky words that are a translator’s enemy and that can be found in almost every document we translate, also exist between English and Finnish. 36 So, what’s a false friend? Well, as many of you might know, a false friend (from the French faux amis) is a word or an expression that shares a similar written form in two languages, but which has different meanings. 37 When you see them, you might assume they have the same meaning as a similar word in your native language. 38 Even professional translators can be misled by a false friend. That’s why, as a translator, it’s necessary to be familiar with them. Remember that when it comes to translation, ‘false friends are worse than bitter enemies’, as the Scottish proverb says, and you should keep your eyes open, because they might be waiting for you around every corner. It seems no language is free of false friends. 39 During the years I’ve been working as a translator, I’ve come across many false friends; they were in that urgent assignment, or that translation I finished off without first having my coffee, trying to confuse me. 40 Therefore, I would like to help you in your war against false friends by sharing some of them with you. A.The Finnish language is no exception. B.Research key words while doing translation. C.This is the first of a two-part series on the topic. D.Therefore, false friends can cause a lot of problems. E.Luckily, I was able to spot them and translate them properly. F.Sometimes, even fluent users of a language can confuse them.
G.So you should avoid a nightmare caused by it during your next translation project.
