      Passage Seven
     For many international students, coming to the United States and living here and studying can be a quite a
daunting experience, especially when finding housing on campus or off campus. And fortunately, there are a
variety of options that students can look to. And I' d like to talk just briefly a little about on-campus living, off
campus living, and some of the advantages and disadvantages of each.
     Well I think first of all for first-time students, coming and living on campus in dormitories can provide a
certain level of security because of its proximity to campus facilities since commuting without a car can be quite
an experience, especially when you have to commute long distances. Often in dormitories, meals might be
provided, and this can allow students to devote time to their academics, rather than housekeeping. But students
should also be aware that they' 11 be required to abide by certain regulations dealing with student conduct as part
of the contract and living on campus.
     Another option, another option is off-campus living in apartments, and like living in dormitories,: living in an
apartment requires little or no maintenance specifically because usually it is handled by someone else. Also, when
you might live off campus, there might be a certain amount of flexibility in choosing roommates that you might
not have, uh, living on campus. But you should be aware that tenants may be responsible for furnishing their own
apartments.
     Well, of course, the choice is up to you, but be careful to review both the advantages and disadvantages of
living on campus and off campus. Good luck.
     10. With on-campus housing, students should remember that ______.
       A. they may have to follow certain housing rules
       B. a deposit may be required to rent an apartment
       C. on-campus apartments are very limited
       D. they may have to prepare their own meals

      Part Ⅳ Reading Comprehension (Reading in Depth)                        (25 minutes)
Directions: There are 2 passages in this section. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished
statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. You should decide on the best choice
and mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2 with a single line through the centre.
      Passage One
      In October, 1961, at Crowley Field in Cincinnati, Ohio, an old, deaf gentleman named William E. Hey
stood up to toss out the first ball of the World Series. Most people at Crowley Field on that day probably did not
remember Hey because he had retired from professional baseball 58 years earlier, in 1903.However, he had been
an outstanding player and the deaf community still talks about him and his years in baseball.
      William E. Hoy was born in Houckstown, Ohio, on May 23, 1862. He became deaf when he was two years
old. He attended the Columbus Ohio School for the Deaf. After graduation, he started playing semi-pro baseball
while working as a shoemaker.
      Hoy began playing professional baseball in 1886 for Oshkosh (Wisconsin) of the Northwestern League. In
1888, he started as an outfielder with the old Washington Senators. His small stature and speed made him an
outstanding base runner. He was very good at stealing bases during his career. In the 1888 major league season, he
stole 82 bases. He was also the Senators leading hitter in 1888. Hoy was ambidextrous; he threw right-handed
and batted left-handed. On June 19, 1889, he threw out three batters at the plate from his outfield position.
      The arm signals used by umpires today to indicate balls and strikes began because of Hoy. The umpire lifted
his right arm to indicate that the pitch was a strike, and his left arm to signal that it was a ball.
      For many years, people talked about Hoy's last ball game in 1903. He was playing for Los Angeles of the
Pacific Coast Winter League. It was a memorable game because Hoy made a spectacular play which won the
game. It was a very foggy night and, therefore, very hard to see the ball. In the ninth inning, with two men out,
Hoy managed to catch a fly ball to make the third out in spite of the fog. Los Angeles defeated their opposition
and won the pennant for the year.
      Hoy married Anna Marie Lowery. The Hoys had many friends. Since they could not hear a doorbell or a
knock on the door, Hoy improvised. He put a baseball in a groove by the door bell mechanism. The pulling of the
bell knocked the ball onto the floor. The vibrations announced the visitor.
      After he retired, Hoy stayed busy. He ran a dairy farm near Cincinnati for 20 years. He also became a public
speaker and traveled giving speeches. Until a few years before his death, he took 4 and 10 mile walks several
mornings a week. On December 15, 1961, William Hoy died at the age of 99.
      46. In which order did things occur?
         A. Hoy went to school, became deaf, worked as a shoemaker, then played professional baseball.
         B. Hoy became deaf, went to school, worked as a shoemaker, then played professional baseball.
        C. Hoy became deaf, went to school, played professional baseball, then worked as a shoemaker.
        D. Hoy worked as a shoemaker, became deaf, went to school, then played professional baseball.
     47. "In the 1888 major league season, he stole 82 bases." This means that ______.
        A. Hoy secretly took the bases home as a souvenir
        B. Hoy was a dishonest player, and a thief
        C. Hoy did a specific baseball play many times, where he ran from one base to the next when the ball was
not in play
        D. Hoy fought with other players about who got to stand on first base 82 different times in the season
     48. "Until a few years before his death, he took 4 and 10 mile walks several mornings every week." This
means that Hoy was ______.
        A. only following his doctor' s orders
        B. not in good shape
        C. very tired when be was finished
        D. in good physical condition
     49. The main idea of this passage can best be stated as ______.
       A. a deaf baseball player named Hoy was a skilled player who had a great impact on the game of baseball
        B. baseball is the greatest American pastime, and can be played by anyone
        C. deaf people can do anything
        D. where the umpire' s hand signals came from
     50. We can assume from this selection that ______.
       A. Hoy' s family always encouraged him to become a baseball player
       B. baseball players do not need to rely on spoken language and hearing to play the game properly
       C. the umpire who developed the hand signals had studied American Sign Language very seriously
       D. Hoy also wanted to become a famous football player, but didn' t have the time
       Passage Two
     A remarkable Christmas story: one of courage, life, and love.
     Twenty-five years ago, Ray Anderson, a single parent with a one-year-old son, was returning home after
running a few errands Christmas Eve when he witnessed a horrendous accident which took place when the driver
of a truck ran a red light and collided with the car of Sandra Jenkins. The impact of the collision killed Sandra
instantly, but her three-month-old daughter was left trapped upside down in the burning wreckage seemingly
doomed to a fiery tomb. While others looked on in horror, Anderson jumped out of his vehicle and crawled into
the car through the shattered rear window to try to free the infant. Seconds later, the car was totally engulfed in
flames, but Anderson was miraculously able to pull the baby to safety. While the child came out of the accident
virtually unscathed, Anderson suffered third degree burns over 80 percent of his body. Two days later, Anderson
died, but his heroic act was published widely in the media. Anderson' s son was soon adopted by relative, and the
family moved to the East Coast.
     The most remarkable part of this story unfolded only last week. Karen and her fiance, Aaron, were looking
through some old boxes in the attic of Karen' s home when they came across some old newspapers clippings.
"This is me when I was a newborn baby. I was rescued from a burning car, but my mother died in the accident,"
explained Karen. Although Aaron knew Karen' s mother had died years earlier, he never fully understood the
circumstances until he started to skim over the newspaper article. Karen continued to sort through some old books
when saw Aaron absorbed in the details of the accident. Then she noticed, to her much surprise, tears swelling up
in his eyes, and he began to cry uncontrollably. Then, in between sobs, be went on to reveal that the man that
pulled her from the flames was the father he never knew. The two embraced and shed many tears that afternoon,
recounting stories told to them about their parents.
     What really drew their attention was some other details unknown to both of them until that moment.
According to the article, Aaron' s father was on a mission of love that fateful Christmas Eve in the process of
distributing care packages to needy families in the area. That was a yearly tradition that he performed
unbeknownst to everyone except two close friends. He did this because of his firm conviction that the best
Christmas gifts came not from the gift received, but from those given, and that those acts of charity should remain
anonymous. As it turns out, Karen' s mother was also involved in similar volunteer work throughout the
community.
      In honor of their parents and the desire to share the gift of Christmas, Aaron and Karen have committed to
carry on similar acts of kindness. While hardship, grief, and tragedy plague our lives, the gift of the 19ye seems to
transcend all material obstacles and brings greater hope for those downtrodden and low in spirit.
      Merry Christmas to all of you.
      51. What event does Ray Anderson witness at the beginning of the story?
       A. A home fire.
       B. An explosion.
       C. An automobile accident.
       D. A bad traffic jam.
      52. How did Ray save the baby?
       A. He pulled the baby out of the window.
       B. He put out the flames with a fire extinguisher.
       C. He called the police and fire department.
       D. He cried for help from the people around.
      53. What happened to Ray?
       A. He had extensive head injuries.
       B. He was burned over much of his body.
       C. He suffered from smoke inhalation.
       D. He managed to come out of the fire safe and sound.
      54. Who is Aaron?

       B. He is Karen' s older brother.
       C. He was adopted by Sandra Jenkins.

or two years' experience. And what do you do? Are you a student on campus?

      Q: What you think the woman will do after the man proposed the dance on campus?
      (Long Conversation)
      Bargaining (at a flea-market)
      M: Hello, ma'am, What can I do for you today?
      W: (picking up a beautiful hand-painted plate ) This is quite lovely. Where was it made?
      M: Oh, I see you have excellent taste. Yes, that is beautiful, isn't it? It' s the local pottery. I think it was
painted here by a local artist.
      W: It's really something.., do you have anything else by this artist?
      M: Well, I'm not really sure who exactly painted which pieces of pottery, but here are some similar pieces.
      W: No, they' re really not the same.
      M: Well, how about these here. I had them brought in just this morning.
      W: Yes, those are quite nice. What about the prices?
      M: Obviously, it depends on what you would like to buy. That plate that you were first looking at costs $ 50.
      W: $ 50! That's quite dear. I can't afford that.
      M: Remember these are hand painted pieces of pottery, that kind of handicraft work doesn't come cheaply.
      W: Yes, I understand that. But I really think that $ 50 is just too much.
      M: Listen, I can see that you are in love with that plate. Let' s just make it $ 45. I' d really like you to take
that home with you.
      W: How about $ 35. I really can' t go any higher than that.
      M: I really can' t, I mean that would be selling at cost.
      W: Well, $ 38 is absolutely the most t can spend.
      M: All right. I really shouldn' t. The artist is going to have me put out of business for selling his wares at such
low prices.
      W: Come, come. Let' s not exaggerate.
      M: You' re a clever one, aren' t you?
      W: I' m just someone who pays close attention to what I spend.
      M: There's no shame in that. Here you are. (hands the plate to the woman)
      W: Thank you very much.
      M: Thank you, have a pleasant day.
      Questions21 to 25 are based on the conversation you have just heard.
      21. What's the woman interested in?

      Section B
      Directions: In this section, you will hear 2 short passages. At the end of each passage, you will hear some
questions. Both the passage and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a question, you must
choose the best answer from the four choices marked A, B, C and D. Then mark the corresponding letter on
Answer Sheet 2 with a single line through the centre.
      Passage One
      Welcome to today' s news segment, highlighting business opportunities on the Internet. One such opportunity
is a program called Adsense from the major search engine, Google. Basically, Adsense is a simple and easy way
for website owners to place discrete ads on their sites as a means of earning income. You simply insert certain
lines of code and then receive a certain percentage of resulting revenue.
      What is so nice about this program is that it is very simple and straightforward to implement and maintain.
Here are some points you should keep in mind.
      First, the program is free to join.
      Next, you only have to add a snippet of code to each page to display the ads.
      Also, Goegle serves up ads on your pages that are relevant to your site' s content. These ads can also enhance
the content and substance of your own pages.
      Also, the ads are less noticeable (and annoying) than pop-up or pop-under ads, and you can customize the
look, feel, and placement of the ads.
      Furthermore, you don' t have to deal with advertisers since Google manages the entire program.
      Finally, an online log-in area gives you statistics as to the performance of your account.
      As you can see, the Adsense program can be beneficial to both sides in allowing advertisers to spread the
word about their products and services, while websites who display the ads can earn money to support their own
businesses or interests. Visit the Google website and read the Terms of Service to learn more about this program
and see if Adsense is right for you.
      Questions 26 to 30 are based on the passage you have just heard.
      26. Who is the developer of the program Adsense?
      27. How can website owners make money with Adsense?
      28. How are the ads distributed?
      29. Which point about Adsense was NOT addressed in the news report?
      30. What should you do before you sign up for an account?
      Passage Two
      W: Hey, sorry, I can't come to the phone now. Just leave a message...
      M: Mary, Mary. Where in the world are you? I'm in hot water, and it's all your fault! I thought you said Cindy
was single and available! you were so wrong! You should have told me that your sis had just broken up with a
seven-foot gorilla named Butch. I mean the guy is huge, and he caught me dropping her off at her place, and be
nearly strangled me before I could get in my car. And the guy' s dog. You might have warned me about his vicious
beast dog. The thing nearly ripped off my arm. Well, once I pealed out of the drive way, the maniac started
chasing me in his monster truck and nearly ran me off the road. You could have told me that your car didn' t have
much gas ' cause it ran out in the middle of this dark parking lot, and I'm now hiding in the men's room of the gas
station. Now, pick up the phone.., pick it up... Oh, no, I can hear the guy outside and ... hey, and your phone is
going dead ... You might have told me that this thing couldn' t hold a charge ... I should have stayed home and
done the laundry... I shouldn' t have listened to your wacky idea of going out tonight ... Mary, Mary? Where are
you?
      Questions 31 to 35 are based on the passage you have just heard.
      31. What is the relationship between Mary and Cindy?
      32. Where did the man first run into trouble?
      33. What happened while the man was trying to get away from Butch?
       34. Where is the man at the time of this phone call?
       35. What does the man say he should have done that evening instead?
       Section C
       Directions: In this section, you will hear a passage three times. When the passage is read for the first time,
you should listen carefully for its general idea. When the passage is read for the second time, you are required to
fill in the blanks numbered from 36 to 42 with the exact words you have just heard. For blanks numbered from 43
to 45 you are required to fill in the missing information. For these blanks, you can either use the exact words you
have just heard or write down the main points in your own words. Finally, when the passage is read for the third
time, you should check what you have written.
       I once had a friend that was S36 diagnosed with S37 terminal cancer, and the news that he might only live up
to six months was a great shock to him, his family, and his friends. However, in spite of the dire S38 prognosis,
he was initially determined to look into all S39 available treatments that might cure or extend his life. I think that
when you find yourself in such situations, you tend to look up every possible S40 avenue for hope of preserving
your life.
       As the months progressed and his health grew worse, I noticed an unexpected change in attitude that came
over him. He had also been a jovial person with an S41 upbeat personality, but rather (than) give in to
discouragement and self-pity, he took comfort his faith in God and humanity. His conversations S42 focused on
others rather than himself, and he spoke of the afterlife as something he was prepared for, believing that his
deceased ancestors, including his mother and father, were there waiting for him.
       S43 During the last few months, weeks, and days of his life, he was kindly cared for by family, friends, his
loving wife, who looked after both his physical and emotional needs, and workers from a local hospice came to
the home to help regulate his medication and provide any other needed support. He didn' t complain about his fate,
S44 and he willingly allowed others to serve him, realizing they were the benefactors of something more.
       Indeed, one might ponder why God allows death and suffering in our world, but for me, such experiences
taught me to value family more and kindness for others. S45 You often can' t learn these important attributes in the
lap of luxury, and perhaps, such an experience is the greatest and final gift the terminally ill can give those left
behind.

    Part Ⅳ Reading Comprehension (Reading in Depth) (25 minutes)
      46.B
     [分析] 列举题。需要回头查看原文叙述的顺序。文章的第二段、第三段的开头都明白地阐述了他 2 岁

到半职业选手就下结论,那样的话顺序就会乱了。
     47.C
     [分析] 细节理解题。考查读者对特殊词组的理解。第三段主要讲他作为棒球运动员的成就:从擅长偷
垒到出色袭击。          理解了这一段是讲他的成功和技巧,                       就可以排除 A 和 B 两个选项了,                  它们都不是讲的技巧。
D 选项不可能是正确答案,因为文章当中根本没有讲到 Hey 好战。
     48.D
     [分析] 推论题。考查读者从已知信息推导正确答案的能力。A 选项不可能是正确答案是因为文章并没
有提到他的医生。文章也没有提到比赛结束后 Hoy 是感到疲倦还是精力充沛,所以也排除了 C 选项。不可
能是 B 选项的理由是:If he walked several mornings a week,then he would be in good physical condition,not
poor physical condition.
     49.A
     [分析] 中心思想题。 选项是最恰当的总体概括性的阐述,
                            A                                         文章的中心思想就是 Hoy 的棒球技能以及
他对棒球运动的影响。B 选项太笼统,文章并没有讲到棒球是美国入主要的消遣运动,而只是讲 Hey 本人
的棒球经历。C 选项也是既笼统又离题。D 选项太具体,文章并没有讲到其他聋人或聋人问题。
     50.B
     [分析] 推论题。         从文章内容我们知道 Hoy 是一个成功的聋人棒球手。                                很显然他不是靠听、            说来打棒球,
这一点说明棒球运动总体来说不需要听、说的能力。文章没有提到他家人鼓励他打捧球,说明 A 选项不可
