B Dear Mrs Beattie, I was so afraid the first time I met you. It was not just that you were really fat and shouted so loudly. Everything about you was scary. All the teachers were afraid of you, too. But you were excellent and very kind. You would shout at us if we’d done something wrong in another teacher’s lesson, and then you would go to apologize(道歉) to that teacher for what we had done. You made us believe we were 小学+初中+高中
小学+初中+高中 able to do anything if we put our heart into it. I hated art, and was ashamed of being unable to draw anything well. So, of course, I wandered about in art lessons. You took me aside and said I could do it. You told me to concentrate on the lines, and if it was not good, I should start again. Do you remember how you made me draw and paint that photograph of the tennis player Nastase, and it was a bit too bad at first but in the end I was so unbelievably proud of it? You could even see the veins(静脉) in his legs. “Mind over matter,” you said, or something like that – and you were right. We thought you were an ogre(凶恶的 人), but you turned out to be the fairest person on the earth. There was a time when I did really well in everything but geography, and you said, “Simon has done quite well this year, but I was only let down by his geography where he didn’t work hard enough.” I said I had worked hard but was too weak in it, and asked if you could change my report, and you rewrote it, saying, “Simon has done quite well except for geography, which he’s not very good at.” Thanks, Mrs Beattie. Hope you’re still teaching there. Lots of love, Simon Smith 23.The author didn’t focus on his art lessons mainly because__________. A．he couldn’t draw well C．the art teacher was unkind B．the art teacher didn’t teach well D．he was always laughed at by the art teacher
24.The author takes the example of painting the tennis player Nastase to show that_____. A．like father like son B．nothing is difficult if you put your heart into it C．two heads are better than one D．time and tide waits for no man
C As is known to all, nowadays many students are interested in studying abroad. Attending schools abroad has many advantages. First, by looking at our own country 小学+初中+高中
小学+初中+高中 from outside, we can best see the strong points and weak points of our nation and therefore broaden our minds. Second, while studying in a foreign country, we can travel widely, visiting famous scenic spots and making friends with the local people. Third, we can use the foreign language in our daily life so that our ability in that language may be improved quickly. But the most important is to learn advanced（先进的） science and technology. For all these advantages, it is really worthwhile to go abroad for education. However, as everything has two sides, there are also some disadvantages in attending a foreign university. The most serious problem is the language barrier (障 碍). Most of the students who are ready to go abroad do not prepare themselves well for the new language environment. As a result, on arriving there, they will find it difficult to understand what the instructors are saying in class. Besides, for not knowing about the customs and way of life of the local people, they may run into trouble in dealing with various situations. Therefore, misunderstandings often arise. Furthermore, the cost of living is much higher than that in our country, so most students have to find part-time jobs in order to help support themselves. Faced with these difficulties, many students find themselves unable to pay full attention to their studies and some students may even fail in their courses and learn little. Therefore, given an opportunity to attend a school abroad, one must consider the factors carefully before making up his mind. On the one hand, it is a good thing to go and study abroad. But on the other hand, one must not neglect ( 忽 视 ) the disadvantages. 25. According to the passage, the following are all advantages of studying abroad EXCEPT _____ . A. having more chances to get good jobs B. improving foreign language ability quickly C. visiting well-known places of interest D. learning very modern science and technology 26. According to the passage, why do some students find part-time jobs? A. Because they want to learn more skills in a different country. 小学+初中+高中
小学+初中+高中 B. Because they want to make full use of their spare time. C. Because they are not interested in studying. D. Because they have to provide for themselves. 27. The passage mainly tells us that________ . A. studying abroad is a good way to learn more B. it is unwise to study abroad C. people should think twice before going abroad for further education D. going abroad has more advantages than disadvantages
D So many of us hold on to little complaints that may have come from an argument, a misunderstanding, the way we were raised, or some other painful events. Stubbornly, we wait for someone else to reach out to us—believing this is the only way we can forgive or rekindle a friendship or family relationship. A friend of mine, recently told me that she hadn't spoken to her son in almost three years. She said that she and her son had had a disagreement about his wife and that she wouldn't speak to him again unless he called first. When I suggested that she be the one to reach out, she said, “I can't do that. He's the one who should apologize.” After a little gentle encouragement, however, she did decide to be the first one to reach out. To her amazement, her son was grateful for her willingness to call and offered an apology of his own. As is usually the case when someone takes the chance and reaches out, everyone wins. Whenever we hold on to our anger, we turn “small stuff(问题)” into really “big stuff” in our minds. We start to believe that our positions are more important than our happiness. They are not. If you want to be a more peaceful person you must understand that being right is almost never more important than allowing yourself to be happy. The way to be happy is to let go, and reach out. Let other people be right. This doesn't mean that you're wrong. Everything will be fine. You'll experience the peace of letting go, as well as the joy of letting others be right. You'll also notice that, as you reach out and let others be “right” they will become less defensive and more loving toward you. They might even reach back. But, if for some reason they don't, that's okay too. You'll have the inner satisfaction 小学+初中+高中
小学+初中+高中 of knowing that you have done your part to create a more loving world, and certainly you'll be more peaceful yourself. 28．The underlined word “rekindle” in Paragraph 1 probably means “________”． A．replace B．develop C．accept D．rebuild
29．In the author's opinion, we hold on to our anger often because we think ________. A．we can turn small issues into big ones B．our positions are higher than others’ C．our own opinions matter most D．others will be less defensive 30．What would be the best title for the passage? A．Be Peaceful C．Small and Big Stuff B．Reach Out and Give D．Enjoy Your Friendship
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。选项中有两项为多余 选项。 How You Can Create Luck in Everyday Life Having a positive way allows you to create your own luck in everyday life. Here are some tips.

First, it is one of the most interesting places in the world to visit, having about 6,400 scenic spots. These include museums and galleries like the National Gallery and British Museum, historical monuments like the Tower of London and Windsor Castle, and so on. Secondly, the United Kingdom contains some of the world’s best institutes of higher education, such as the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Third, the United Kingdom has had a great influence on the development of cinema and music. Famous films, include the Harry Potter, Star Wars and James Bond series, originated here. Although the James Bond films are made by American studios, they use British source materials, locations, actors and film crews. Moreover, London remains one of the major classical music centers of the world. The UK was also, along with the US, one of the two main contributors to the development of rock music. Lastly, 小学+初中+高中
小学+初中+高中 a number of major sports originated in the United Kingdom, including football, rugby, cricket and golf.
