Unlike package tours, backpacking is a struggle, full of discovery and chance connections. It is about focusing on something different from our own lives and losing ourselves in a new world, if only for a moment. Well, that's what backpacking Europe is supposed to do. That’s what it used to do before modern communications, social media, and commercial hostelling ( 旅社 ). Older Canadians would not recognize the Europe that they backpacked in the 1960s, 1970s and even the 1980s. Far from a rough adventure into foreign cultures, the European experience has been shattered in part by today's technology. A few years ago, I took my then 60-year-old father on a backpacking trip across part of Europe and Turkey. As he is an experienced traveler and someone who possesses a strong sense of adventure, I decided that we'd travel on a budget, staying in hostel dorms. For him, backpacking through Europe in 1969 was about independence and struggle. But two things surprised him at the end of our journey. First was how technology-based backpacking had
become: Young people were so directly connected to home that they were hardly away in any meaningful sense. Second, the lack of connections we made with locals. Instead of making us feel closer to a place, he found commercial hostelling actually made us more alienated (疏远的). But there was some room for hope. While technology takes our attention away from the beauty and history before us, there were also ways in which it helped us to connect with our surroundings. Websites like Airbnb have made it easier to stay with enthusiastic locals. Couch Surfing helps organize meet-ups between locals and travelers. The online marketplace Dopios offers a chance to meet locals through enjoyable experiences like a personalized city tour. Backpacking can never be the way it was for our parents’ generation. But doing a little study of history and culture before leaving, and bravely getting rid of any electronic devices while traveling, will help give young travelers a taste of the glory days. 24. The underlined word “shattered” in Paragraph 2 most probably means ________. A. broadened B. relived C. ruined D. acquired
25. After the recent backpacking trip in Europe, the author’s father finds ________. A. backpackers connect less with locals than before B. young people dislike getting in touch with their family C. a hostel is a nice place for travelers to meet each other D. backpacking in Europe becomes more difficult than before
26 What’s the author’s attitude towards technology? A. Negative. B. Objective. C. Uncertain. D. Uninterested.
27. The text mainly discusses the relationship between ________. A. adventures and cultures C. young people and their family B. technology and traveling D. Canadian travelers and Europeans C Think about the last time you felt afraid. Was it a fear of height? Did you oversleep on a weekday and fear you’d get into trouble at the office? In any case, you know what it feels like to feel fear. But one woman doesn’t The woman, code-named “UM”, gave her first-ever interview after years of being studied by a team of researchers. The woman is given a code name because the
researchers want to protect her from anyone who would take advantage of her inability to feel afraid. UM can’t tell you what fear is because she’s never experienced it. “I wonder what it’s like to actually be afraid of something,” she said. The formal name for the disease is Urbach-Wieth disease, which is characterized by a hoarse(粗哑的)voice，small bumps around the eyes, and calcium deposits(钙沉积的)in the brain. In the case of UM，the disease has transformed the part of her brain that controls the human response to fear. In the interview, UM talks about an event in her life where she was held at knifepoint and gunpoint, “I was walking to the store，and I saw a man on a park bench．He said. “Come here，please,” so I went over to him. He grabbed me by the shirt，put a knife to my throat and told me he was going to cut me. I told him, And for some reason，he let me go.” Doctors who have been studying UM’s condition for years have been trying different things that could strike fear into her. They finally figured something out—increasing UM’s carbon dioxide levels．Extra carbon dioxide concentration in the blood is known to cause fear and panic in health individuals. Increasing UM’s carbon dioxide levels did manage to give her a fright． 28. The text starts by_______． A. challenging the reader B. solving daily problems C. listing situations D. giving explanations 29. Why is the woman with Urbach-Wieth disease given a code name? A. To tell her case from other patients B. To respect her privacy C. To meet the researchers’ demands D. To ensure her safety 30. From UM’s case，we can know that Urbach-Wieth disease may________. “Go ahead and cut me,” I wasn’t afraid at all.
A. stop the brain from functioning normally B. lead to a decrease in calcium deposits C. stop the brain from responding quickly D. lead to an increase in carbon dioxide 31. What will probably happen to UM from the last paragraph? A. Dying of the Urbach-Wieth disease． B. Getting the sense of panic． C. Experiencing another danger． D. Speaking with a hoarse voice． D With around 100 students scheduled to be in that 9:00 am Monday morning lecture, it is no surprise that almost 20 people actually make it to the class and only 10 of them are still awake after the first 15 minutes; it is not even a surprise that most of them are still in their pajama’s(睡 衣). Obviously, students are terrible at adjusting their sleep cycles to their daily schedule. All human beings possess a body clock. Along with other alerting systems, this governs the sleep/wake cycle and is therefore one of the main processes which govern sleep behaviour. Typically, the preferred sleep/wake cycle is delayed in adolescents, which leads to many students not feeling sleepy until much later in the evenings. This typical sleep pattern is usually referred to as the “night owl” schedule of sleep. This is opposed to the “early bird” schedule, and is a kind of disorder where the individual tends to stay up much past midnight. Such a person has great difficulty in waking up in the mornings. Research suggests that night owls feel most alert and function best in the evenings and at night. Research findings have shown that about 20 percent of people can be classified as “night owls” and only 10 percent can be classified as “early birds” ------ the other 70 percent are in the middle. Although this is clearly not true for all students, for the ones who are true night owls, this gives them an excellent excuse for missing their lectures which unfortunately fall before midday. 32. What does the author stress in Paragraph 1 ?
A. Many students are absent from class. B. Students are very tired on Monday mornings. C. Students do not adjust their sleep patterns well. D. Students are not well prepared for class on Mondays. 33. Which of the following is true according to Paragraph 2? A . Most students prefer to get up late in the morning. B. Students don’t sleep well because of alerting systems. C .One’s body clock governs the sleep/wake cycle independently. D. Adolescents’ delayed sleep/wake cycle isn’t the preferred pattern. 34. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined word “classified”? A. Criticized B. Grouped C. Organized D. Named
35. What does the text mainly talk about? A. Functions of the body clock. B. The “night owl” phenomenon. C. Human beings’ sleep behaviour. D. The school schedule of “early birds”. 第二节 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。 （共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） （请注意涂卡方式：选 E 涂 A 和 B, 选 F 涂 A 和 C， 选 G 涂 A 和 D） Today it is common to see people who walk about with colored wires hanging from their ears wherever they go. They move about in their personal bubbles, sometimes unaware of what’s happening around them. 36 . Outside life is shut out. So are you one of “them”? 37 What’s even
For me, walking around in my own personal bubble is perfect.
better, wearing earphones seems to give a signal to people which says: “I’m not available for chatting at the moment!” Suppose you’re at work and about to make an incredible breakthrough, but a colleague suddenly turns up. At this precise moment, the slightest disturbance would break your concentration. 38 Once again, those wires hanging from your ears would
be sure to give that “Go away!” signal. 39 It’s probably part of the growing up stage when they just want to ignore
their whole family. While their mothers give them lectures about why they should do their homework, they can just turn up the volume(声音) on their MP3 player, smile, and say “Yes, Mum.” Problem solved. Pretty soon, not only will we have pretty colored wires hanging from our ears—but also our brains will be directly plugged into some new high-tech instrument. We’ll be in a virtual(虚拟) world, communicating with everyone else, or choosing not to, as we like. In this world, we will all be permanently plugged in. the way. In the end, there is a thin line between using technology as a tool for making life better and being a slave to it! It’s so strange—suddenly, I don’t feel like wearing my earphones any more! A. Listening to music through earphones is the perfect way to ignore such interruptions. B. I also have wires hanging from my ears. C. They walk around in their own spaces, with their personal “digital noise reduction systems.” D. I don’t have to deal with the noise from the environment. E. After all, I am listening to my favorite music and would rather not be disturbed. F. Our instruments are changing quickly. G. In the home situation, teenagers love these wires. 第三部分 英语知识运用(共两节，满分 45 分) 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。 As I rushed among the tables, suddenly, a quite 42 41 asked if I could mind a child.

Now I’m writing to tell you the results. Twenty-five percent of my classmates want to choose universities in our province. They say they are more likely to be admitted if they apply to these universities. And they needn’t change their lifestyle too much. Seventy percent of them would like to choose universities in other provinces. Being away from home, they can become more independent and there are more universities for them to choose from. The rest five percent of my classmates plan to choose foreign universities. One reason why they want to go abroad is that they can learn more about different cultures. Besides, it will be a great help to their foreign language study.
