Since 1989, Dave Thomas, who died at age 69, was one of the most recognizable faces on TV. He appeared in more than 800 commercials (商业广告) for the hamburger chain named for his daughter, “As long as it works ,” he said in 1991, “I’ll continue to do those commercials.” Even though he was successful, Thomas remained troubled by his childhood. “He still won’t let anyone see his feet, which are out of shape because he never had proper-fitting shoes,” Wendy said in 1993. Born to a single mother, he was adopted (收养) as a baby by Rex and Auleva Thomas of Kalamazoo in Michigan. After Auleva died when he was 5, Thomas spent years on the road as Rex traveled around seeking construction work. “He fed me,” Thomas said, “and if I got out of line, he’d beat me.” Moving out on his own at 15, Thomas worked, first as a waiter, in many restaurants. But he had something much better in mind. “I thought if I owned a restaurant,” he said, “I could eat for free.” A 1956 meeting with Harland Sanders led Thomas to a career as the manager of a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant that made him a millionaire in 1968. In 1969, after breaking with Sanders, Thomas started the first Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers, in Columbus, Ohio, which set itself apart by serving made-to-order burgers. With 6,000 restaurants worldwide, the chain now makes $ 6 billion a year in sales.
Although troubled by his own experience with adoption, Thomas, married since 1954 to Lorraine, and with four grown kids besides Wendy, felt it could offer a future for other children. He started the Dave Thomas Foundation (基金会) for Adoption in 1992. In 1993, Thomas, who had left school at 15, graduated from Coconut Greek High School in Florida. He even took Lorraine to the graduation dance party. The kids voted him Most Likely to Succeed. “The Dave you saw on TV was the real Dave,” says friend Pat Williams. “He wasn’t a great actor or a great speaker. He was just Joe Everybody.” 51. What is the article mainly about? A. The life of Dave Thomas. C. The schooling of Dave Thomas. a. graduated from high school c. became a millionaire e. met Harland Sanders A. e,b,c,d,a A. Thomas's. A. Dave was famous C. Dave was showy B Though I have traveled in hundreds of trains, few unusual things have ever happened to me. But one day in a train something did happen. I do not mean that I was hurt: no one was hurt. I do my work in a hot country far away from England. Every September I go there to do my business, and every July I come back to England to have a rest. So every September I go to Paris and take a train from the great French city to Mendova, and at Mendova I catch my ship. There is one very fast train from Paris to Mendova, and it suits me well. It goes as far as Endoran, but it stops at Mendova for a few minutes to let travelers get out or in. it is called The flying bluebird. It reaches Mendova at seven minutes past nine in the morning, and it is never late. A ship leaves Mendova at half past eleven, and so you will understand that The flying bluebird suits me very well. I always travel by it, and I have nearly two and a half hours at Mendova to go from the station to the ship. That is more than enough time. Well, one September night, I took my place in The flying bluebird as usual. The train leaves Paris at nine o’clock every night, and I was in my place soon after half past eight. There were three or four people there with me, but very soon a lot of others got into the train. When no more people could sit down, they began to stand up near us and also in the corridor (走廊). In a short time the corridor was full too, and it was impossible for any more travelers to get into the train. I could see a lot of other people outside the corridor windows, but they could not get in, and the B. a,e,c,b,d B. Wendy's. C. e,c,b,d,a C. Lorraine's. B. Dave was ordinary D. Dave was shy D. a,e,b,c,d D. Rex's. 53.What is the name of Dave Thomas's business? 54. “He was just Joe Everybody.” (in the last paragraph) means ________. B. The dream of Dave Thomas. D. The growth of Dave Thomas’s business. b. started his own business d. started a foundation
52. Choose the right time order of the following events in Thomas’s life.
train left Paris without them. The man sitting next to me started to ask all kinds of questions: “Where do you work? How long does it take you to get there? Are you married? How many children do you have? How much money do they pay you every year? How much do you have in the bank? How much do you spend every month?” He asked questions for about twenty minutes but I did not give him any clear answers, and at last he stopped and began to read the paper. I usually sleep quite well in the train, but this time I slept only a little. There were too many people, and there were too many things: small bags, large bags, coats, hats, boxes, newspapers and food. As usual, we got angry about the window. Most people wanted it shut, and two of us wanted it open. But that always happens. It was shut all night, as usual. When I awoke in the early morning I felt hot and dirty, and glad that the journey was reaching its end. At seven minutes past nine The flying bluebird stopped. We were at Mendova, and I stood up thankfully. I took my two suitcases, held one in each hand, and tried to move towards the door into the corridor. In order to get out of the train, I had to pass down the corridor to the door at the far end. There was no other way out. I could not even get into the corridor. There was a suitcase on the floor by my feet, and three men were standing in my way. I felt a touch of fear. I had to get out, you see; I had to catch my ship, which left at half past eleven. And the train did not stop again until it reached Endoran, two hundred miles away. “I must get out!” I cried. Everyone there understood me, but no one could move. At last I was able to put one foot over the suitcase on the floor, and I nearly reached the door into the corridor. But then, very slowly, the train began to move. It was taking me away! “Stop!” I cried. “I want to get out!” But no one outside the train could hear me, and the people inside did not care much. The train moved a little faster. What could I do? I was not even in the corridor. Fear made me think quickly. In front of my eyes, just above the door, was a notice that told everyone how to stop the train. I had to pull an iron (铁的) thing near the notice. I did not waste time. I pulled it. Well, a noise started above our heads. That was to show everyone that there was something wrong. It was not a small sound. Possibly the men in my ship two miles away could hear it. Then the train stopped. No one likes to stop a train if there is no need. But I had to catch my ship. That was the only thought in my mind: to get out and catch my ship. 55. The purpose of the author writing the first paragraph is to ______________.

The traditional method of stamp collecting is to organize stamp collection according to the issue dates. Of course, there are many other methods of collecting stamps. You can collect stamps relating to a particular theme. For example, sport lovers may choose the Olympic theme. They try their best to find Olympic stamps issued by various parts of the world every four years. Some of them may want to concentrate on even more specific sport activities like ball games, gymnasium, swimming, etc. If you like astronomy, you may be keen on collecting stamps describing the stars, planets, spacecraft, spacemen, etc. Once you have fixed the topic, you no longer need to bother about stamps other than the theme you selected. Then, you can put all your effort to collect the stamps around it. China issues zodiac animal stamps (十二生肖邮票) every year to celebrate the Lunar New Year. They are extremely popular and a lot of collectors wait patiently for 12 years to collect a full set of them. Hong Kong’s Lunar New Year special stamp series began in 2000 with the Year of Dragon and the twelfth and final set was issued in 2011, the Year of Rabbit. Recently some Western countries have issued zodiac animal stamps, which attract a lot of attention as well. You may choose any theme you like. However, you should bear in mind an essential point. The topic you choose should not be too narrow. Otherwise, it is very difficult to accumulate stamps around the topic. You will be depressed and even lose your interest in collecting stamps. Collecting stamps with themes is especially popular among teenagers because there is a wide range of choices for them. The main challenge is how you organize and expand your collection around your theme. 1. List the three general themes in collecting stamps mentioned in the passage.（one word for each） _______________________________________________________________________________ 2. What is the main idea of the passage? （no more than 5 words） _______________________________________________________________________________ 第四节: 书面表达（25 分） 屠呦呦， 1930 年 12 月 30 日出生于浙江宁波， 首位获得诺贝尔奖（the Nobel Prize）的 中国科学家。 儿时目睹家乡疟疾（malaria）肆虐；北京大学毕业后投身于药学研究，淡泊名利，潜心 钻研，190 多次的失败后发现痢疾的克星“青蒿素” （artemisinin） 。 根据以上信息概述屠呦呦的人生经历，并谈谈她对你的启发, 写一篇 120 词左右的短文。 ____________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________________

Collecting stamps with themes（2 分） 书面表达（25分） Tu Youyou, born on 30 December 1930, is the first Chinese scientist to receive the Nobel Prize, due to her revolutionary discovery “artemisinin”, a cure for the infectious disease, malaria. Witnessing the outbreak of malaria in her hometown, Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, Young Youyou got inspired and thus made up her mind to help people exposed to malaria. Her medical research began after her graduation from Peking University. She attached little importance to fame and fortune and instead stayed absorbed in the scientic research. Artemisinin is a result of more than 180 failures! After reading Tu’s story, I have been feeling inspired by her spirit. Tu’s success is no accident. Only by perseverance and concentration can we achieve success in the end.
附：听力原文 (Text 1) M: Could I get another cup of coffee? W: Sorry, sir, we’re going to take off. M: Oh, in that case I’d better fasten my seat belt. (Text 2) W: Did you finish the match yesterday? M: Yeah. It looked as though it was going to rain, but it didn’t. I certainly didn’t need my sunglasses, though, with those grey skies. (Text 3) M: Have you read The Careless Tourist? W: Yes. The story was quite exciting in parts, I suppose. The words in the book are good. But the
characters were all so unpleasant. (Text 4) M: I’m going to the bike shop. W: Why? It just has a flat tire. Can’t you fix that yourself? M: Yes, I can, but I’ve lost my bike lock. (Text 5) M: You mean it’s still not fixed? W: Not yet. Too bad it broke down on the hottest day of the year. M: I’m supposed to wear a coat and tie in this office, and I’ve been dying! W: I’ll tell the repairman downstairs again. (Text 6) W: I’m so tired. Shall we just stay at home this weekend? M: Mmm … how about bringing the kids to the beach tomorrow with a picnic as it’s so hot … although we really ought to clean the flat. Oh, I really forgot! Isn’t your sister coming to see us on Sunday? W: Yes, you’re right. She’ll enjoy a good day at the seaside, won’t she? We’ll relax at home another time and then do the housework too. M: Sounds great. (Text 7) W: What did you study in university, Stuart? M: Well, I studied law for four years, although I’ve never actually worked for a law firm. I spent three years writing articles for a law magazine, but I always knew this wasn’t what I really wanted to do — the kitchen is my true home! W: When did you quit your last job? M: Last year. After I won a TV competition to make the most delicious dish in the country, I turned professional. Since then, I’ve never looked back. (Text 8) W: Did you get a chance to visit Brenda? M: Yeah, she is still in some pain. W: It must have been a pretty bad accident. I heard her car was totally destroyed. How did it happen? M: She was driving to Florida with her neighbour to visit a classmate and her car slid in the snow and hit a tree. I suppose she was lucky she wasn’t hurt worse. Anyway, she’ll be going home in another day, but it’ll be at least a month before she’s back working with us. Her neighbour wasn’t hurt at all. W: That’s lucky for her. (Text 9) W: This afternoon I’m at Frankby Castle. Ryan, the uniforms you wear are quite old in style, aren’t they? M: Well, to my mind everything about this uniform is there for a reason. It shows the centuries gone by. And, by the way, it fits quite well. W: Do things ever go wrong here? M: Well, I remember one night we had a fire practice and everybody had to get out, but one couple were so fascinated by a painting that they stayed in one of the rooms. Unfortunately for them we decided not to reopen after the practice was over, and they ended up being stuck there overnight.
When the cleaners heard sounds in the morning, they thought they must be art thieves. W: Is this a pleasant place to work? M: Yes! There’s so much about this place that I still don’t know and I get excited whenever I discover more facts about it. OK, it’s freezing in winter and too hot in summer, but you get used to that. People here don’t always work with a smile, but it’s like that anywhere, isn’t it? W: Are you glad you decided to make Frankby your home? M: Well, before I moved here, I was worried I’d be bored, but that didn’t turn out to be the case. And when I think of some of the ugly towns I could’ve ended up in, I realize how fortunate I am. I’m not surprised they built a castle here! (Text 10) M: Hello, everyone! My name is Harry Marshall, and I want to tell you about my recent school trip to a place called Markham. Our teacher, Mr Griffiths, who actually teaches us maths, is also really interested in geography, so he wanted to take us — and he thought we’d get material for other subjects like art and photography, too. I was surprised to find that the cave we were in was completely dry, apart from a stream that ran right through it, which I wanted to examine a bit more closely. And there was also a waterfall that dropped into a black hole at the back of the cave. Needless to say, no one really wanted to explore that part! The guide also asked us what different shapes we could see in the rocks. Many people thought one rock was shaped like a snake, and several in my group thought they saw a horse in another rock, but I didn’t manage to see anything more exciting than a rock that looked a bit like a rabbit. The final part of our visit was to an exhibition about the history of the caves. We saw videos about how the caves were explored, and photos of the brave divers who first went into the caves. But I was even more impressed by the machines we were shown. They really brought the history of the place to life for me.
