Job C. D. Job D. B When I was about 14, I decided to make money, so I got a part-time job at a local restaurant. With my first paycheck, I realized that I would have to work awfully hard to make very little money. My boss had been making just above minimum wage for 20 years, and I knew I didn't want to spend the rest of my life working to death. Around the same time, my godparents took me to an investment(投资) workshop. Immediately, my eyes were opened to the power of compound growth in investing. I knew that this was a way to financial freedom. I left the workshop, determined to make my money work for me instead of just me working for money. Honoring what my mother had taught me, to share whatever I had, I donated part of my paychecks to raise money for breast cancer, and saved everything else to build up a large enough nest egg to open a brokerage account (经纪人账户). Too excited to wait, I began reading everything I could about investing. With most of my life savings (which wasn't very much money), I invested in DuPont, AT&T, Caterpillar, and International Paper. The pride in being a shareholder （股东）in a company, along with watching my stocks increase in value, fueled my desire to learn more. I went to three more investment workshops with my godparents and browsed(浏览) books at the library. I began with $4,000 in my account and have added about $2,000 since then. My portfolio is now worth roughly $12,000, five years later, having grown about 18% per year, on average. My favorite holdings are biotechnology companies that I know a fair amount about because they're based near me. In the years since then, I have experienced many moments of gratitude for discovering investing so early in my life. I'm in college now, and plan to go on to medical school and become a family practice physician. And I know that, thanks to investing, my road will be much easier. Not

My Dream Career C. The Key to Successful Investment D. Thank You, My Godparents C Over 500 dogs being delivered to a butcher house were saved by a Chinese animal protection organization. The incident then triggered debate among Chinese netizens about the necessity of pouring so much money and efforts into saving dogs. On Friday, a truck loaded with over 500 dogs were stopped by volunteers from animal protection organization on Jingha expressway Beijing section. Beijing Times reported these dogs were being delivered to slaughter houses in the city of Changchun, northeast Jilin province and would be eventually served on dinner tables. After negotiations with the truck driver, pet service provider Leepet Holding Corp. and a philanthropic foundation, Shangshan Foundation, purchased these dogs, each paying 50,000 yuan. Dogs were then delivered to the headquarter of China Small Animal Protection Association (CS APA), being taken care of and waiting for adoption. After the “dog saving mission” was reported, Chinese net users debate over whether saving dogs worth so much efforts and money while there are still many poor and needy people in China lacking assistance. Some net users argue the dog saving mission is placing over attention to animals while lots of needy people are still left unattended. A microblogger “Xiaowulaitajie” said on China’s twitter-like website, weibo.com, “Dogs are saved, adopted and they attracted media spotlight. We'd better spend such money and take such

efforts in helping the needy people.” Another microblogger, Liluping, said "We poured such huge sum of money into saving dogs. I would rather the money be spent on disaster relief." Some applaud volunteers’ actions and show eagerness of offering their helping hands to those saved dogs. Still many disapprove those "saving dogs" critics, but they argue that such act nonetheless embodies social progress. A microblogger named "broken bridge" said, saving dogs does not run counter to taking care of people. Such enthusiasm in public affairs will help raise social awareness in helping the needy. I think people and animals are created equal .Attention should be paid to people as well as animals. 54. Where did the article come from ___________? A. newspaper B. internet C. a TV programme D. a magazine 55. Whose opinion is closest to the writer's? A. Some net users' B. Xiaowulaitajie's C. Liluping's D. Broken bridge's 56. Which statement is TRUE according to the passage? A. All the people think it right to save these dogs with so much money. B. These dogs were finally saved and sent back to their owners. C. Some volunteers support the actions to save these dogs and the people who offered their helping hands to those saved dogs. D. 100,000 yuan was given to the truck driver to purchase these dogs. D If we are to help students develop reading skills in a foreign language, it is important to understand what is involved in the reading process itself. If we have a clear idea of how “good readers” read, either in their own or a foreign language, this will enable us to decide whether particular reading techniques are likely to help learners or not. In considering the reading process, it is important to distinguish between two quite separate activities: reading for meaning (or “silent reading”) and reading aloud. Reading for meaning is the activity we normally engage in when we read books, newspapers, road signs, etc.; it is what you are doing as you read this text. It involves looking at sentences and understanding the message they convey, in other words “making sense” of a written text. It doesn’t normally involve saying the words we read, not even silently inside our heads. Reading aloud is a completely different activity; its purpose is not just to understand a text but to convey the information to someone else. It is not an activity we engage in very often outside the classroom; common examples are reading out parts of a newspaper article to a friend, or reading a notice to other people who can’t see it. Obviously, reading aloud involves looking at a text, understanding it and also saying it. Because our attention is divided between reading and speaking, it is a much more difficult activity than reading silently; we often stumble and make mistakes when reading aloud in our own language, and reading aloud in a foreign language is even more difficult.

When we read for meaning, we do not need to read every letter or every word, nor even every word in each sentence. This is because, if the text makes sense, we can guess much of what it says as we read it. 57. The passage is mainly about ____________. A. reading skills B. silent reading C. reading processes D. reading aloud 58. The underlined word “stumble” in Paragraph 3 means ____________. A. step over something and fall B. repeat something or pause for too long C. walk with heavy movements D. speak in a fluent and confident way 59. We can infer from the passage that the author will continue to ____________. A. discuss in detail how to read aloud B. introduce some more reading activities C. tell how good readers read in their own language D. explain why we needn’t say the words when reading for meaning 60. We can conclude that ____________. A. reading silently is easier than reading aloud B. to understand a sentence, you have to read all the words in it C. silent reading involves looking at a text and saying the words silently to yourself D. there’s no difference between reading in one’s own language and in a foreign one 第二节 （共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从下面的 A~F 选项中选出能概括每一段主题的最佳选项，并在答题卡 上将该选项涂黑。选项中有一项为多余选项。 A． use the Internet safely B． make up emergency plan C． stay away from strangers D． be aware of stranger danger E． turn to trusted adult for help F． keep family information in mind Everyone wants their children to be safe, but many parents may wonder if they are doing all they can to ensure their child’s safety.

Your child should know his full name and address, as well as his home telephone number. Children who are school-aged should be able to remember this information easily.

near him. Do not scare him into believing that every adult he meets out is to hurt him. Simply warn him that he should be careful and never go anywhere or share personal information with an adult he doesn’t know. 63. If your family faces an emergency such as a natural disaster, you need a plan to organizing your efforts. You should practice this plan with your child for several situation. For example，you need to determine where your family reunite if some members are away from home during an emergency, and where inside your home you will go if a disaster strikes. 64. If your child is particularly shy, he may be afraid of all adults who aren’t known to him. Unfortunately, this can extend to helpful adults, such as doctors, police officers and fire fighters. Teach your child about the people who may help him in an emergency, and help him be comfortable around those people so that he will ask for help if he needs it. 65. If you allow your child to use the Internet, teach him to use safely. Do not allow him go into chat rooms or use other online forums to discuss personal information with strangers. If he has a social networking site page, such as Facebook or MySpace, make sure he only adds real friends lists, not strangers. Never let him meet anyone in person if he only met them online. 第三部分：写作（共三节，满分 55 分） 第一节 单词拼写（共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 根据下列各句句意和空白之后的汉语提示词，在答题卡指定区域的横线上写出对应单 词的正确、完整形式，没空只写一词。 66．So many women take up walking as a regular form of exercise every day, which, of course, is of (益处) to their health. 67.

Because of the low visibility, terrible accidents happen every now and then, some highways have to be shut down. Obviously, air pollution is the main factor that has resulted in the frequency of hazy weather. At the same time, smoke from burning coal and all kinds of dust are also important factors. Besides, exhaust emission from cars and buses has made the situation even worse. So as to protect our environment from becoming worse, we should take actions in no time. we are supposed to reduce the use of coal and boost the use of public transport facilities, aiming to cut down the carbon dioxide emission.
