In 1978, I was 18 and was working as a nurse in a small town about 270 km away from Sydney, Australia. I was looking forward to having five days off from duty. Unfortunately, the only one train a day back to my home in Sydney had already left. So I thought I?d hitch a ride (搭便车). I waited by the side of the highway for three hours but no one stopped for me. Finally, a man walked over and introduced himself as Gordon. He said that although he couldn?t give me a lift, I should come back to his house for lunch. He noticed me standing for hours in the November heat and thought I must be hungry. I was doubtful as a young girl but he assured （使…放心）me I was safe, and he also offered to help me find a lift home afterwards. When we arrived at his house, he made us sandwiches. After lunch, he helped me find a lift home. Twenty-five years later, in 2003, while I was driving to a nearby town one day, I saw an elderly man standing in the glaring heat, trying to hitch a ride. I thought it was another chance to repay someone for the favour I?d been given decades earlier. I pulled over and picked him up. I made him comfortable on the back seat and offered him some water. After a few moments of small talk, the man said to me, “You haven?t changed a bit, even your red hair is still the same.” I couldn?t remember where I?d met him. He then told me he was the man who had given me lunch and helped me find a lift all those years ago. It was Gordon. 21. The author had to hitch a ride one day in 1978 because .

About four percent of the population is what scientists call “amusic.” People who are amusic are born without the ability to recognize or reproduce musical notes ( 音调 ). Amusic people often cannot tell the difference between two songs. Amusics can only hear the difference between two notes if they are very far apart on the musical scale. As a result, songs sound like noise to an amusic. Many amusics compare the sound of music to pieces of metal hitting each other. Life can be hard for amusics. Their inability to enjoy music sets them apart from others. It can be difficult for other people to identify with their condition. In fact, most people cannot begin to grasp what it feels like to be amusic. Just going to a restaurant or a shopping mall can be uncomfortable or even painful. That is why many amusics intentionally stay away from places where there is music. However, this can result in withdrawal and social isolation. “I used to hate parties,” says Margaret, a seventy-year-old woman who only recently discovered that she was amusic. By studying people like Margaret, scientists are finally learning how to identify this unusual condition. Scientists say that the brains of amusics are different from the brains of people who can appreciate music. The difference is complex, and it doesn?t involve defective hearing. Amusics can understand other nonmusical sounds well. They also have no problems understanding ordinary speech. Scientists compare amusics to people who just can?t see certain colors. Many amusics are happy when their condition is finally diagnosed (诊断). For years, Margaret felt embarrassed about her problem with music. Now she knows that she is not alone. There is a name for her condition. That makes it easier for her to explain. “When people invite me to a concert, I just say, ?No thanks, I?m amusic,?” says Margaret. “I just wish I had learned to say that when I was seventeen and not seventy.” 28. Which of the following is true of amusics? A. They can easily tell two different songs apart. B. Listening to music is far from enjoyable for them. C. Their situation is well understood by musicians. D. They love places where they are likely to hear music. 29. According to paragraph3, a person with “defective hearing” is probably one who __________. A. dislikes listening to speeches B. can hear anything nonmusical C. has a hearing problem D. lacks a complex hearing system 30. What is the passage mainly concerned with? A. Amusics? strange behaviours. B. Some people?s inability to enjoy music. C. Musical talent and brain structure. D. Identification and treatment of amusics.
D I have happy memories of trips to Europe, but my trip to Romania (罗马尼亚) was unique. When I was there as recalled, it was like being in a “James Bond” movie. My husband was born there, but his family sent him to study in Italy. Before he left, his mother told him, “As long as I write in pencil, don?t come back. When I write to you in pen, it?s safe to return.” But she never wrote in pen. My husband lived a poor life in Italy. He applied to go to America, but there was a limit in number and he was rejected. He was accepted by Canada, though, and from Calgary he jumped onto a train to San Francisco. There he stayed —illegally. He became a US citizen when we got married. By then he was a charming European with a Romanian accent and the manners of a prince. With seven years? experience in America, a US passport, and two children later, he felt it was safe to visit Romania. He hadn?t seen his mother, two sisters, and two brothers since he was sixteen. We flew to Munich, Germany; picked up the German-made car we had purchased in the States; and drove to Romania via Austria and Hungary. When we reached Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, his family was waiting outside his sister?s house to greet us. After a long time of hugging, kissing, and crying, his family also hugged me, the American wife with two young children. They had great interest in me. Few Americans visited Romania at that time, and most Romanians had little chance to travel. I had brought an English-Romanian dictionary with me and managed to communicate, using only nouns, with no verbs. My Romanian improved, and the family?s stock of English words increased, but mostly I spoke in broken, New York-accented Romanian. The sisters loved their gifts of skirts and purses, the brothers loved the radios, and the children loved the candy. We made side trips to the Black Sea and enjoyed sightseeing in beautiful mountains. Dining at outdoor cafes to the music of violins was fantastic with fancy flavor, but nothing was as special as family dinners. Romania didn?t have many dry cleaners. Most homes had old -fashioned washing machines but no dryers, and it was a hot summer. My husband?s relatives didn?t want to risk dirtying their clothes. Their solution was as simple as it was shocking: the women only wore their bras(胸罩) and slips (衬裙) at dinner table. The men were eating without shirts. They all had jobs, so time was precious. Having dinner without proper clothes was a small inconvenience compared with the effort of washing clothes —at least in my husband?s home, perhaps all across Romania. I, of course, having just met them, ate fully clothed. I washed my clothes by hand and hung them outdoors to dry. On the last night of our three-week stay, we had a large family dinner. I was tired of washing my clothes. So I pulled my dress over my head and placed it on the chair behind me. All men and women applauded for my action. Even with my poor Romanian, I understood that they were saying, “She?s part of our family now.” My children were 4 and 5 at the time, but they still have memories of that trip. They know how to say, “Good morning.” and “There are apricots (杏子) on the tree.” I can still say, “Do you speak Romanian?” and “I swim in the Black Sea.” But most of all,
I remember sitting at a long dining-room table in my bra, enjoying meatballs with fresh garlic (大蒜). 31. From Para.1, we learn that ________. A. a trip to Europe would be dangerous B. the mother didn?t want to see her son C. Romania might be unsafe at that time D. the mother didn?t like to write in pen 32. The writer?s husband became an American citizen through ________. A. experiences B. application C. illegal stay D. marriage 33. What made the writer feel special about the family dinner in Romania? A. The way people dressed . B. The way people spoke. C. The fantastic violin music. D. The fancy food flavor. 34. The writer was completely accepted by her husband?s family when ________. A. she offered gifts to the whole family B. she spoke her husband?s language C. she washed all the clothes by hand D. she had dinner in bra like other ladies 35. The writer shared her story to say ________. A. “East or west, home is the best” B. “When in Rome do as the Romans do” C. “Marry a dog and follow the dog forever” D. “The course of true love never runs smooth” 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，并在答题纸 上将该选项标号涂黑。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Building Trust in a Relationship Again Trust is a learned behavior that we gain from past experiences. 36 Trust is a risk. But you can?t be successful when there?s a lack of trust in a relationship that results from an action where the wrongdoer takes no responsibility to fix the mistake. Unfortunately, we?ve all been victims of betrayal. Whether we?ve been stolen from, lied to, misled, or cheated on, there are different levels of losing trust. 37 They?ve been too badly hurt and they can?t bear to let it happen again. It?s understandable, but if you?re willing to build trust in a relationship again, we have some steps you can take to get you there. ●Learn to really trust yourself. Having confidence in yourself will help you make better choices because you can see what the best outcome would be for your well-being. ● 38 If you?ve been betrayed, you are the victim of your circumstance. But there?s a difference between being a victim and living with a “victim mentality”. At some point in all of our lives, we?ll have our trust tested or violated. ● 39 Once trust is lost, what is left? Instead of looking at the situation from this hopeless angle, look at everything you still have and be thankful for all of the good in your life. 40 Instead, it?s a healthy way to work through the experience
to allow room for positive growth and forgiveness. A. You didn?t lose “everything” B. It is putting confidence in someone. C. Stop regarding yourself as the victim. D. Sometimes people simply can?t trust anymore. E. Remember that you can expect the best in return. F. This knowledge carries over in their attitude toward their future relationships. G. Seeing the positive side of things doesn?t mean you?re ignoring what happened. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 15 小题；每小题 2 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，并在答题纸上将该选项标号涂黑。 One weekend, my kids and I were heading into the supermarket.

It was a gift from mother, who is always willing to help me. There was a time when I was addicted to online games. Because of that, my study suffered a lot. Instead of scolding me, Mother gave me a book and asked me to read it. Hardly had I finished a few pages when I was greatly attracted by Helen Keller. Despite her disability, she didn?t abandon hope and achieved a lot. It was her determination and courage that made her a huge success. When I finished reading the book, Mother had a talk with me. “You can also accomplish what Helen Keller did.” Mother ?s words ring in my ears whenever I see the book, inspiring me to face the challenge in life.
