But when he was dying, I set off（出发）for Nebraska to be with him and my family. I stopped for the night at a hotel with a pool, hoping a swim would relax. The pool area was empty as I walked into the still water. A man in a bathing suit appeared. He sat on the edge of the pool with his legs moving up and down in the water. He had dark hair and deep brown eyes and smiled. ‘Where are you going?’ he asked. When I told him about my father, he asked how we got along. I tried to change the subject, but then for some reason, I told him everything. Finally the man said, ‘Even with all the trouble, remember, your father still loves you.’ All at once, warm and clear childhood memories came flooding back: Dad running alongside my wobbling (摇摆的) bicycle, the proud hug he gave me at my high school graduation, his laugh when I caught him off guard with a tickle(挠痒). ‘Yes, I know he does,’ I heard myself say. And for the first time in years I believed it. The man left, leaving me alone with my comforting thoughts. Back in my room, as I went to bed, I decided it was time to forgive my father. Then I wished he’d forgiven me too. The phone bell woke me up at 3 am. My sister’s voice sent a silver (寒战) through me: Dad had just died. I had wanted to see him and make peace. But as my sadness grew, I remembered that the man by the pool had already brought Dad and me together. 56. From the passage we learn that the author __________. A. didn’t know his father was seriously ill B. always thought highly of his father C. lived in Nebraska far away from his family D. was going to see his father 57. What made the author change his original idea about his father? A. That he was made to think of the fact that his father loved him. B. That the man by the pool mentioned his interesting childhood. C. That he remembered his father had taught him to ride a bike. D. That he knew his father would leave him forever.
B Not all memories are sweet. Some people spend all their lives trying to forget bad experiences. Violence (暴力) and traffic accidents can leave people with terrible physical and
emotional(情感上的) scars. Often they relive these experiences in nightmare. Now American researchers think they are close to developing a pill, which will help people forget bad memories. The pill is designed to be taken immediately after a frightening experience. They hope it might reduce, or possibly erase (抹去), the effect of painful memories. In November, experts tested a drug on people in the US and France. The drug stops the body releasing(释放) chemicals that fix memories in the brain. So far the research has suggested that only the emotional effects of memories may be reduced, not that the memories are erased. The research has caused a great deal of argument. Some think it is a bad idea, while others support it. Supporters say it could lead to pills that prevent or treat soldiers’ troubling memories after war. They say that there are many people who suffer from terrible memories. “Some memories can ruin people’s lives. They come back to you when you don’t want to have them in a daydream or nightmare. They usually come with very painful emotions,” said Roger Pitman, a professor of psychiatry (心理学) at Harvard Medical School. “This could relieve a lot of that suffering.” But those who are against the research say that changing memories is very dangerous because memories give us our identity (特质). They also help us all avoid the mistakes of the past. “All of us can think of bad events in our lives that were horrible at the time but make us who we are. I’m not sure we want to wipe those memories out,” said Rebecca Dresser, a medical ethicist. 59. The passage is mainly about __________. A. a new medical invention B. a new research on the pill C. a way of erasing painful memories D. an argument about the research on the pill 60. The drug tested on people can ___________. A. cause the brain to fix memories B. stop people remembering bad experiences C. prevent body producing certain chemicals D. wipe out the emotional efforts of memories 61. We can infer from the passage that ___________. A. people doubt the effects of the pill B. the pill will stop people’s bad experiences C. taking the pill will do harm to people’s health D. the pill has probably been produced in America 62. Which of the following does Rebecca Dresser agree with? A. Some memories can ruin people’s lives. B. People want to get rid of bad memories. C. Experiencing bad events makes us different from others. D. The pill will reduce people’s sufferings from bad memories. C You either have a sense of direction, or you don’t. But why is it that some people could find their way across the Sahara without a map, while others can lose themselves in the next street? Scientists say we’re all born with a sense of direction, but it is not properly understood how it works. One theory(理论) is that people with a good sense of direction have simply worked harder at developing it. Research being carried out at Liverpool University supports this idea and suggests that if we don’t use it, we lose it. “Children as young as seven have the ability to find their way around.” says Jim Martland, Research Director of the project. “However, if they are not allowed out alone or are taken everywhere by car, hey never develop the skills.”
Jim Martland also emphasizes that young people should be taught certain skills to improve their sense of direction. He makes the following suggestions: ● If you are using a map, turn it so it relates to the way you are facing. ● If you leave your bike in a strange place, put it near something like a big stone or a tree. Note landmarks on the route as you go away from your bike. When you return, go back along the same route. ● Simplify the way of finding your direction by using lines such as streets in a town, streams, or walls in the countryside to guide you. Count your steps so that you know how far you have gone and note any landmarks such as tower blocks or hills which Call help to find out where you are. Now you will never get lost again! 63. Scientists believe that__________. A. some babies are born with a sense of direction B. people learn a sense of direction as they grow older C. people never lose their sense of direction D. everybody possesses a sense of direction from birth 64. What is TRUE of seven-year-old children according to the passage? A. They never have a sense of direction without maps B. They should never be allowed out alone if they lack a sense of direction． C. They have a sense of direction and can find their way around． D. They can develop a good sense of direction if they are driven around in a car． 65. If you leave your bike in a strange place, you should____________. A. tie it to a tree so as to prevent it from being stolen B. draw a map of the route to help remember where it is C. avoid taking the same route when you come back in it D. remember something easily recognizable on the route 66. According to the passage the best way to find your way around is to___________. A. ask policemen for directions B. use walls，streams or streets to guide yourself C. remember your route by looking out for steps and stairs D. count the number of landmarks that you see D We can make mistakes at any age. Some mistakes we make are about money. But most mistakes are about people. "Did Jerry really care when I broke up with Helen?" "When I got that great job, did Jim really feel good about it, as a friend? Or did he envy my luck? “And Paul, why didn't pick up that he was friendly just because I had a car?" When we look back, doubts like these can make us feel bad. But when we look back, it's too late. Why do we go wrong about our friends—or our enemies? Sometimes what people say hides their real meaning. And if we don't really listen we miss the feeling behind the words. Suppose someone tells you, "You're a lucky dog, "and that's being friendly. But "lucky dog"? There's a bit of envy in those words. Maybe he doesn't see it himself. But bringing in the "dog" bit puts you down a little, what he may be saying is that he doesn't think you deserve your luck. "Just think of all the things you have to be thankful for" is another noise that says one thing and means another. It could mean that the speaker is trying to get you to see your problem as part of your life as a whole. But is he? Wrapped up in this phrase is the thought that your problem isn't important. It's telling you to think of all the starving people in the world
when you haven't got a date for Saturday night. How can you tell the real meaning behind someone’s words? One way is to take a good look at the person talking. Do his words fit the way he looks? Does what he says agree with the tone of voice? His posture? The look in his eyes? Stop and think. The minute you spend thinking about the real meaning of what people say to you may save another mistake. 67. This passage is mainly about ______. A. how to interpret what people say B. what to do when you listen to others talking C. why we go wrong with people and how to avoid these mistakes D. why we go wrong with people sometimes 68. According to the author, the reason why we go wrong about our friends is that . A. we fail to listen carefully when they talk B. people tend to be annoyed when we check what they say C. people usually state one thing but mean another D. we tend to doubt what our friends say 69. The underlined word "it" in the second paragraph refers to______. A. being friendly B. a bit of envy C. lucky dog D. your luck 70. When we listen to a person talking, the most important thing for us to do is __. A. notice the way the person is talking B. take a good look at the person talking C. mind his tone, his posture and the look in his eyes D. examine the real meaning of what he says based on his manner, his tone and his posture

But if we think about what is going on in our lives, we can usually come up with an answer. Let’s look at some of the most common dreams. What do these dreams mean? Falling You’re falling, falling, falling… and then you wake up. This dream is said to mean you are afraid of something or worried about something. There may be something in your life that is out of control and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Another explanation is that you may fail in something. Maybe you’re not doing well in school or work. Taking an exam (or forgetting that you have one) You suddenly realize you have to take an exam at that very moment. You might be running here and there to find your classroom. Experts say this dream may mean you’re being tested about something or maybe you are facing a challenge. Flying Dreaming that you are flying means you are on top of things. You are in control of the things that matter to you. It may also mean you have confidence in yourself and think no one and nothing can beat you. Trying to run, but going nowhere You’re trying to run, but either your legs won’t move or you simply aren’t going anywhere. Some experts think this dream means you’re trying to do too many things at once and can’t catch up or move forward. In fact, unlike these dreams, there are also many strange dreams that experts may not be
able to explain. Topic: What do dreams mean? Descriptions of dreams Falling Taking an exam Flying You have something to fear or (72) ________ about.

书面表达 A: Nowadays more and more students use dictionaries as study aids. Some think that it is better to use the printed dictionary. They consider that it has more entries which are complete and detailed， while the e-dictionary offers limited information. However, some others hold the opposite view. They think that an e-dictionary is smart and cool to use as well as time-saving. Meanwhile, it has many other practical functions. But a printed dictionary is not so convenient to carry. Personally, I prefer the printed dictionary because it has many advantages. First, it provides more entries. Besides, the definitions are followed by more examples，which makes it easier for us to understand. Most important of all, it provides enough contexts for us to develop a good sense of language and to improve our writing. B: Nowadays more and more students use dictionaries as study aids.
