A few years ago my husband, my son and I were traveling to visit my cousins. It was

Finally we 37 a truck stop. So we pulled in and I got out of the car for 38 . “Does anybody here know how to find Merridale Road?” I asked. A very tired waitress looked up and said, “Lady, I haven?t got a clue.” Since she was not 39 , I looked around at the customers. There, sitting nearby, were four of the toughest men I had ever seen in my life. Chains. Black leather. Skulls and crossbones (骷髅). I immediately thought of my 40 in the car and what these characters might do to us. “We know 41 you?re going,” one of them said cheerfully. “Not only that, but we?ll take you there.” 42 I could say no, they got up, paid their bill, and were outside on their motorcycles, gesturing, “ 43 us!” We started to follow them down the dark and quiet country roads. After a few minutes, my son decided it was all 44 for us. “They?re taking us to a 45 place, and that will be the end,” he said 46 . "I'm never going to see my school or my friends again. How 47 you do this to me?” I whispered to my husband, “I don?t want to scare Jack, but he?s right. I am a bit 48 . It?s dark. The road is getting very lonely. And these people are tough. Maybe I did the 49 thing.” “No kidding,” he replied. “We?re just going to have to trust that it?s going to be all right.” About an hour later, after 50 through endless back roads deep in the woods, they 51 to us to go left. We looked up, and there was the 52 for Merridale Road. They had put us on the right road after all. And then they 53 good-bye and disappeared from view.

第三部分：阅读理解（共两节，40 分）? 第一节： （共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，共 30 分）? 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑。? A A Koala Isn?t a Bear Koalas remind people of teddy bears. They have thick fur and large ears. Their broad, flat nose makes them look cute, similar to teddy bears. In fact koalas aren?t cute. They have sharp teeth and very sharp claws! Koalas are marsupials. This means the mother carries her baby in a pocket while it develops, similar to a kangaroo. The baby koala lives in its mother?s pocket for the first six months of its life. The name “koala” comes from a native Australian word that means “no drink.” The koalas get almost all their water from the eucalyptus(桉树) leaves they eat. That?s where they get their food too. Koalas eat only eucalyptus leaves, and only the leaves of certain eucalyptus trees. The eucalyptus trees are where the koalas live. It?s also where they sleep. Koalas sleep about nineteen hours a day! Why do they sleep so much? Some people think it?s because they?re lazy. But koalas aren?t lazy. They sleep so much because there isn?t much nutrition in eucalyptus leaves. Koalas store hardly any fat, so they must save their energy. One way to do this is to move slowly and sleep a lot. After a day of sleeping they like to move around and eat just after sunset. They live alone most of the time. Koalas are very protective of their trees. If a koala sees another koala eating in its favorite tree, it might tell the other koala to leave by “barking” at it. Koalas do “talk” to each other. Besides barks, the males make a deep grunting sound. The mothers and babies talk in soft clicking sounds. If they get scared they may scream like a baby. 56. According to the article, how are koalas and kangaroos alike? A. They both have thick fur. B. They both have sharp teeth. C. They both eat eucalyptus leaves. D. They both carry their young in a pocket. 57. The word “koala” comes from a word that means _______. A. no drink B. moving slowly C. large ears D. barking loudly 58. Why do koalas sleep a lot? A. Their babies need to get much rest. B. They get tired from playing so much. C. Their food does not give them much energy. D. They do not like to be awake when it is warm. 59. If an adult koala screams like a baby, he may get ________. A. worried B. scared C. hungry D. sleepy

He felt proud, excited, and happy—and also a little nervous about whether his essay would win. Ben?s local newspaper had advertised a contest inviting students to submit essays in honor of a remarkable teacher. The newspaper would choose the five best essays and print them in the paper. As soon as Ben heard about the contest, he knew he wanted to write about Mrs. Gruen. Mrs. Gruen was always so friendly and patient, and she always had something encouraging to say to her students. Even more importantly, she knew how to make science interesting and enjoyable. Before being in her class, Ben would have said he was uninterested in science, but now science was his favorite subject. At first, Ben had struggled with his essay. After he finished his first draft, he asked his older sister, Hannah, to review it. Eventually, after many more revisions, the essay was ready to mail. As Ben stood before the mailbox, he imagined how surprised Mrs. Gruen would be to open the newspaper and see her name in print. When the big day finally came, Ben opened the newspaper and eagerly studied the columns of print for the essay he had written. He did not see his essay anywhere. He turned through all of the pages, but it was not there! Instead, he saw five other essays talking about five other teachers. Ben felt like a balloon that had suddenly lost all its air. A few days later in science class, Mrs. Gruen asked Ben to stay after class for a few minutes. “Your sister stopped by yesterday,” Mrs. Gruen told Ben. “She brought me the most wonderful gift.” Ben saw that Mrs. Gruen was holding a copy of his essay. “You have no idea how much it means to me that you enjoy my class and think I?m a good teacher. No reward or honor could ever be greater than this essay,” said Mrs. Gruen. “OK,” Ben said, “I meant everything I wrote.” Then he stepped into the hallway with his head held high. 64. When Ben read the five essays in print, he felt _____. A. surprised B. disappointed C. annoyed 65. What did Mrs. Gruen think of Ben?s essay? A. It built up her reputation. B. It was a great honor to her. C. It helped Ben make progress. D. It deserved to win an award. 66. From the passage, we can learn that Mrs. Gruen _____. A. got great achievements in science B. educated many outstanding students C. encouraged her students in writing contests D. developed her students? interest in science
D Can a Language Become Extinct? A language can become extinct when the last person who can speak it passes away. Or more likely when the second-last person who speaks it dies because then there is no one left to talk to. According to linguists (语言学家) there is nothing unusual about a single language dying out. But what is happening today is quite remarkable. According to the recent statistics, there are approximately 6,000 languages in the world as we speak. Of these, about half are going to die out in the next century. There are several reasons as to why a language can eventually die out. These range from natural disasters, such as hurricanes, to sociological factors, like cultural assimilation, in which the culture of a minority group is gradually replaced by a stronger one. The former can cause tribes to leave their natural habitat(栖息地) and therefore become fewer and fewer in number. However, it doesn?t happen very frequently. In fact, the latter is a much bigger threat and it is responsible for the extinction of a lot of languages in countries like the USA and Australia. For instance, Chemehuevi is one of the languages which is really close to dying out since its sole speaker is an old, yet healthy, man named Johnny Hill, Jr. It is very important for as many languages as possible to be preserved. Scientists have been trying to raise people?s awareness on how certain tribes have specific words which cannot be expressed in let?s say English simply because there is no equal meaning. Namely, the Yupik of Alaska have 99 names to describe different layers of ice formation, or how the Tofa of Siberia classify reindeer (驯鹿). In other words, when languages die out, mankind?s wisdom reduces. On a happier note, there are many famous cases which show what can be done to preserve languages in danger of extinction. In particular, the Maori in New Zealand have created so-called “language nests”: organizations which help children under five learn the language. They provide them with a setting where they are exposed to the language intensively so that they get to realise that communicating in Maori is as natural as communicating in English. There is always, of course, the risk that the children won?t keep the language alive after they have left their “nests”. Nevertheless, hope dies hard. 67. What most probably caused the death of languages in the USA and Australia? A. Habitats were lost. B. Natural disasters struck. C. Native cultures disappeared. D. Foreign languages were spoken. 68. In Paragraph 3, the author states his opinion by ______. A. listing definitions B. providing examples C. presenting causes and effects D. comparing with other opinions 69. What does the author really intends to tell us in the last paragraph? A. Attempts may not produce the desired effect. B. Environment is important in language protection. C. People can do little about a language?s extinction.
D. Measures should be taken in spite of difficulties. 70. The author believes that _____. A. all languages are finally going to die out B. human wisdom can be reflected in languages C. the protective approaches have proved ineffective D. the current situation of languages hardly requires attention 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，共 10 分）? 根据短文内容，从短文后的七个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。 You might take a car, a bus, or a bike to school. But in Bangladesh, instead of waiting for a school bus to come down their street, many students wait for a school boat to come down the river. That?s right—these students attend school on a boat! Bangladesh is very close to sea level.______71______ The flooding creates many problems. For the nearly 160 million people living there, the periodic flooding means that they are often unable to access roads, electricity, or telephones. Growing up in Bangladesh, Mohammed Rezwan was often troubled by these disruptions(破 坏 ). ______72_____ The name means “self-reliance ( 自 力 更 生 ).” The purpose of the organization is to help the people of Bangladesh receive an education and also to bring technology and an improved quality of life to poor people in remote areas of the country. In 2002, Rezwan began transforming boats into schools. Each boat was built to house between 30 and 35 students. The boats had everything you might find in a regular classroom. The only difference was that they floated on a river. ______73______ Today Rezwan and his organization operate 88 boats in northern Bangladesh. About half the boats are used as schools, and the other half are used as temporary houses during the flood season. In addition to the schools and the temporary housing, there are also a floating technology and training center, a library that allows students to check out books, and a health-care center. The school boats travel along the rivers and pick up students for classes that include computer technology, agriculture, and human rights. At night the boats provide additional learning opportunities for students and adults. ______74______ They study using solar lamps that are charged during the day at stations near the river. Special equipment on the boats also projects lessons onto big screens made from sailcloth. People can come down to the riverbank to watch films. In all, these boats help educate close to 90,000 families in Bangladesh. By floating down the rivers, the school boats provide more than books. ______75______ “This ?library? boat inspired me,” said 18-year-old student Shanto Islam, who enjoys reading science fiction books. “I started to dream.” Islam now wants to attend a university. A. They also deliver knowledge, opportunity, and hope to all generations. B. For this reason the land is flooded for five months of every year. C. Parents living in the area are happy to have the boats. D. In 1998 he founded an organization called Shidhulai. E. He did not want to design houses, though. F. Both of them can attend evening courses. G. These boats have been a great success.
