第一部分阅读理解(共20小题;每小题2分,满分40分)

阅读下列短文,从每小题后所给的A、B、C、D四个选项中,选出选项。

A

I was small for my age. I was shy and sometimes it was hard for me to make friends with others. However, learning came fairly easy for me. I was the best in most of my classes, but PE class was my nightmare (噩梦) and made me feel that I was not as good as the others. Miss Forsythe was our PE teacher. She was young and energetic. Everyone liked her. She said that we all had to come to her classes. No one could hide from Miss Forsythe!

One day she told me that she wanted me to play a game with another girl in a PE show. I was rather worried that I wouldn’t do a good job as she explained her idea, but she was excited. With her encouragement, I had no choice but to agree.

It was a "boy meets girl" game. I played the boy and my classmate, Margaret Ann, played the girl. We were dressed in evening clothes and danced around t he floor. According to Miss Forsythe, I had to pick up Margaret Ann when we finished the dance. Since I was not strong enough to pick the tallest girl up, it was she who picked me up. I suddenly felt ten feet tall! It was a huge success and everybody applauded (鼓掌) for our excellent performance. What a wonderful ending! Afterwards, I smiled confidently (自信地).Miss Forsythe’s understanding and willingness to create a place for me in her show (which certainly did not need me) gave me some much needed confidence. She was and always will be my favorite teacher.

1. What do we know about Miss Forsythe?

A. She was good at dancing.

B. She was a strict and understanding teacher.

C. She liked to play games with the students after class.

D. She taught students how to dance.

2. How did the author feel about the game at first?

A. She was excited. B. She thought it would be fun.

C. She was disappointed. D. She was nervous.

3 It can be inferred from the passage that ___________.

A. Miss Forsythe had planned the game that way on purpose (故意地)

B. Miss Forsythe helped the author pick up the tallest girl

C. the author was afraid when she felt ten feet tall

D. the author lost confidence by dancing with her classmate

4 What is the best title for the passage?

A. Our PE Teacher —Miss Forsythe

B. My School Life

C. My Nightmare —PE Classes

D. A Game with My Classmate

B

Most people in Europe visit the Alps (阿尔卑斯山脉) in France, Austria, Italy or Switzerland in winter on their skiing holidays. I visited the Alps in mid summer. Obergurgl, 1,930 meters high, lies in Otzt觌l in the Austrian Alps. No village in Austria lies at a higher altitude than this one. There are many mountains of 3,000 meters and higher in this area, including the Wildspitze, Austria’s highest mountain, which rises to 3,772 meters.

The first goal of my hike was to reach the Breslauer Hütte, at an altitude of 2,840 meters. This was the starting point for hikers that go to climb the Wildspitze. I didn’t climb the Wildspitze —alth ough it was not a technically difficult mountain, I couldn’t climb it without a mountain guide. Besides, the weather decided whether or not we could go on a particular hike.

I did go on another fantastic hike in the Vent area, however. From the Breslauer Hütte, I went on to the Vernagthütte, 2,766 meters high and a few more hours away from the Breslauer Hütte. This is a relatively easy hike, and the sights are magnificent (壮丽的)! Most of all, you are above the tree level here. There is nothing but rocks, ice and snow: this is my favorite part of the mountains. On the way back to the village of Vent, one came down gradually, and sheep were a common sight on the lower green meadows (草地).

When I got back to the village of Vent, it was absolutely wonderful to drink a beer or a glass of buttermilk…

5. From the passage we can learn that Obergurgl is _____.

A . a village in Austria B. not very high

C. the highest mountain in Austria

D. the first goal on the author’s hike

6 What can we learn from the passage?

A. The author continued his hike from the Wildspitze.

B. The author visited the Alps in winter for skiing.

C. There is ice and snow in Vernagthütte in summer.

D. The author liked the village of Vent best of all.

7. Which of the following is the RIGHT order of the author’s hiking route?

A. Obergurgl →Wildspitze →Breslauer Hütte →Vernagthütte →the village of Vent

B. Obergurgl →Wildspitze →Vernagthütte →Breslauer Hütte, →the village of Vent

C. Obergurgl →Breslauer Hütte →the village of Vent →Vernagthütte

D. Obergurgl →Breslauer Hütte →Vernagthütte →the village of Vent

C

Dalton Ghetti has the smallest shoe you probably will ever see. No, he doesn’t have tiny feet. The shoe is a tiny boot on the tip of a pencil! Ghetti is an artist. He uses pencils to make many things.

Today, a pencil can be sharpened (削尖) in a few seconds. When Ghetti was a child in Brazil, however, sharpening pencils was not easy. He didn’t have a pencil sharpener, so he had to sharpen his pencils using a knife. When he was 8 years old, Ghetti began using knives for more than just sharpening pencil tips. He began making designs in the wood of pencils, as well as in soap and chalk. Ghetti uses a knife and a sewing needle (针)to create his sculptures(雕刻). He doesn’t use a magnifying glass(放大镜)on his tiny work of art. Instead, he works under a very bright light. He carves pencils for only about one and a half hours a day. If he works any longer, his eyes get tired.

"I have an interest in small things in life —insects, moths, spiders. I spend a lot of time watching them. There’s a whole tiny world that people don’t even notice." Most of Ghetti’s sculptures take months to complete, and some take years. Sculpting pencils may look fun, but you shouldn’t try this type of art yourself. Using a tool such as a knife is dangerous unless you’re very skilled like Ghetti.

8. Why did Ghetti make the smallest shoe?

A. Because he has little feet.

B. Because he wanted to show his skills.

C. Because he hadn’t seen a tiny shoe before.

D. Because he is interested in it.

9. We can learn from the passage that _________.

A. the boot will be the smallest shoe in the world

B. Ghetti began making designs of tiny things when he was eight

C. Ghetti used to use a magnifying glass to make his tiny art

D. most of Ghetti’s sculptures take years to complete

10 Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage?

A. How Dalton Ghetti creates his sculptures.

B. Why Dalton Ghetti creates tiny things.

C. How long Dalton Ghetti’s sculptures take.

D. How much Dalton Ghetti’s tiny things are. B

D

根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的选项.选项中有两项为多余选项.

If you find that your teacher is unfair to you, think about what is happening. Try to find out whether your teacher really dislikes you, or whether something else is going on. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

16 Ask your classmates if they are having trouble with the teacher, too. If they say yes, perhaps your teacher is to blame.

Are you working up to your ability? Maybe you got a C in your last test, and your teacher told you that you could do better. And the kid sitting beside you got a C, too. 17 Isn’t this unfair? Well, it could be that your teacher knows that you could do better if you put more effort into it. 18

19 There’s no thing wrong with being sensitive (敏感的) ,but if you react to criticism quite differently from others, this could be a reason why you think your teacher doesn’t like you.

Does your teacher seem to act unfairly all the time, or just once in a while? Think about the harsh (苛刻的) things your teacher has done to you. Are these things happening every day, or just once or twice a month? If your teacher really hates you, you would probabl y be picked on all the time. 20

A. Are you the only person being treated badly, or is your teacher rough on the whole class?

B .Are you getting along well with your classmates?

C. Are you more sensitive than other students?

D. Are you interested in your lessons?

E. If your teacher has acted unfairly only a few times, then there’s probably something else going on.

F.Teachers often grade students by different standards.

G.But the teacher didn’t say anything to him!

July5th, Saturday fine

Today we had a short trip to Beidaihe. We set out in the school bus at 7:30 a.m. The weather was pleasant and every one of us was excited. After two hours’ ride, we arrived there at nine thirty. We began our programmes as soon as we got off the bus. We played games on the sands and swam in the sea happily. After that, we had lunch in a restaurant. In the afternoon we walked along the beach to Beidaihe. It was also very beautiful. Many photos were taken there. We enjoyed ourselves very much. Time passed quickly and we had to leave. It was five o’clock when we returned safely. What a good trip we had today! I’ll never forget it.

Tom was a clever boy, but his parents were poor, so he had to work in his spare time and during his holidays to pay for his education. In spite of this, he managed to get to the university, but it was so expensive to study there that during the holiday he found it necessary to get two jobs at the same time so as to make enough money to pay for his studies.

One summer he managed to get a job in a butcher’s shop(肉店)during the day-time, and another in a hospital at night. In the shop, he learnt to cut meat quite nicely, so the butcher often left him to do all the serving while he went to the back room to do the accounts(账目). In the hospital, on the other hand, he was, of course, allowed to do the simplest jobs, like helping to lift people and to carry them from one part of the hospital to another. Both at the butcher’s shop and at the hospital, Tom had to wear white clothes.

One evening at the hospital, Tom had to carry a woman from her bed to the place where she was to have an operation. The woman was already feeling frightened at the thought of the operation before he came to get her, but when she saw Tom, that finished her.

“No! No!” she cried.“Not my butcher! I won’t be operated on by my butcher!” and fainted away(昏厥).

24. Tom made enough money by ________.

A. doing two jobs B. working in a butcher’s shop

C. cutting meat well D. studying in the university

25. Tom was a student, but at the same time he was__________.

A. a butcher and a doctor B. a manager and a doctor

C. an assistant D. a manager

26. The woman patient recognized Tom because ____________.

A. he was wearing white clothes B. he was going to operate on her

C. he was now working in the hospital D. he had sold meat to her

27. The underlined sentence “when she saw Tom, that finished her” means that the sight of Tom _________.

A. plunged her into deep sorrow B. took all her strength and courage away

C. broke her heart D. made her decide to have an operation

C

We were traveling to the Caribbean with our three kids aged 12, 7 and 4. Being from Chicago, we were all in need of a little sun and sand after an especially cold and long winter.

Before the trip, my eldest child asked if we could consider getting him a waterproof case for his iPhone. He thought it would be fun to take pictures and videos of his brother and sister underwater in the pool. That made sense to us, and we agreed that it could make great memory of good time. We bought the case for him.

Down to vacation we went with waterproof case. We performed the suggested water test, and into the pool he went. Pow! That was the end of the phone. Water immediately leaked (渗入) into it and the phone was never turned on again.

Now, this could be a post about what a poorly-designed product the case is, but in fact, that is not what I’m writing about.

Actually, what truly surprised us was what happened to our 12-year-old over the course of the next seven days of our vacation. Aside from the initial (最初的) five minutes after the phone died, our son never mentioned his phone again.

Instead of his usual plugged-in state, he spent much of the vacation reading books, playing silly games with his sister and brother and talking to us at dinner. Normally when we’re on vacation and he and his sister and brother are done with eating, he’ll leave the table to text friends or check sports scores. But with no phone, there was no pull to keep in touch with his friends or to look at the latest posts. Instead, our almost-13-year-old played tag with his 4-year-old sister, ran after chickens with his 7-year-old brother and entertained them with games while we finished our meals. At the end of the trip, when we asked him about the lack of phone, he admitted it was nice to have a break from the constant chatting and keeping in touch with friends.

I’m not saying I intentionally hope his phone dies again, but it does give us time to consider about whether or not we should make the kids leave their cell phones at home as part of the spring break contract. Or at least we should severely curtail phone usage on vacation.

28. Why did the author’s eldest son want a waterproof case for his iPhone?

A. To put his phone away. B. To make his phone beautiful.

C. To limit his phone use. D. To protect his phone underwater.

29. What probably surprised the author most during the vacation?

A. The change in his eldest son. B. The function of the iPhone.

C. The power of children’s games. D. The relationship between his children.

30. How does the author’s eldest son feel about the lack of phone?

A. Fine. B. Upset. C. Excited. D. Uncomfortable.

31. The underlined word “curtail” in the last paragraph probably means_________.

A. practice B. forbid C. continue D. increase

D

How many people have I met who have told me about the book they have been planning to write but have never yet found the time? Far too many.

This is Life, all right, but we do treat it like a rehearsal(排演)and, unhappily, we do miss so many of its best moments.

We take jobs to stay alive and provide homes for our families, always making ourselves believe that this style of life is only a temporary(暂时的)state of affairs along the road to what we really want to do. Then, at 60 or 65, we are suddenly given a clock and several gra ndchildren and we look back and realize that all those years waiting for Real Life to come along were in fact real life.

In America they have a saying much laughed at by the English: “Have a nice day.” They speak slowly and seriously in their shops, hotels and sandwich bars. I think it is a wonderful phrase, making us remember, in effect, to enjoy the moment: to value this very day.

How often do we say to ourselves “I’ll take up horse-riding(or golf, or sailing)as soon as I get a greater job.”? But only to do none of those things when we do get the higher position.

When I first became a reporter I knew a man who gave up a very well-paid respectable job at Daily Telegraph to go and work for a small weekly newspaper. At the time I was surprised by his decision: Why was he in this completely abnormal mental(精神) state? How could anyone turn his back on Fleet Street in central London for a small area in the countryside? I wanted to know.

Now when I am a little older and possibly wiser, I see the sense in it. In Fleet Street the man was under continuous pressure. He lived in all unattractive London suburb(郊区)and he spent much of his life sitting on Southern Region trains to and back from his work.

32. The first paragraph of the passage tells us that .

A. we always try to find some time to write a book

B. we always make plans but seldom complete them

C. we always enjoy many of life’s best moments

D. we always do what we really want to do

33. The underlined phrase “turn his back on” (Paragraph 6) most probably means .

A. leave for B. return to C. rely on D. give up

34. The man who worked at Daily Telegraph left this job because he was .

A. under too much pressure B. in an abnormal mental state

C. not well-paid D. not respected

35. What is probably the best title for the passage?
