The greatest source of inspiration for me has always been my father. Though he's been gone

After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a
movie. The other woman my wife wanted me to visit was my mother, who has been a widow for 19
years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only
That Friday after work, when I arrived at her house, my mother waited in the door with her
coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last
We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy. My mother took
my arm as if she were the First Lady.
During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation nothing extraordinary but catching up
on recent events of each other’s life. We talked so much that we missed the movie.
As we arrived at her house later, she said, “I’ll go out with you again, but only if you let me
invite you.” I agreed.
A few days later, my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened so suddenly that I
didn’t have a chance to do anything for her.
Some time later, I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant receipt from the same
place Mother and I had dined. An attached note said: “I paid this bill in advance. I wasn’t sure that I
could be there; but, nevertheless, I paid for two plates—one for you and the other for your wife.
You will never know what that night meant for me. I love you, son.”
At that moment, I understood the importance of saying in time: ‘I love YOU’ and to give our
loved ones the time that they deserve.
Nothing in life is more important than your family. Give them the time they deserve, because
these things cannot be put off till some “other” time.

B. the author doesn’t like his work and his three children

D. She wrote a letter to tell her son about her illness.
28. During the dinner, what did they talk about?

C. Each other’s daily life. D. Movies and dishes.
29. It can be inferred from the passage that_________.
A. the author regretted for not showing much love to his mother

In the Caucasus region of Russia, nearly 50 out of every 100,000 people live to celebrate their
100 th birthday, and many don’t stop at 100! By comparison, in America only 3 people in 100, 000
reach 100. But these Russian old people aren’t alone．The Pakistanis, who live high in the
Himalaya Mountains, and the Ecuadorans of the Andes Mountains seem to share the secret of long
These people remain healthy in body and spirit despite the passage of time．While many
older persons in industrial societies become weak and ill in their 60s and 70s, some Caucasians
aged 100 to 140, work in the fields beside their great-great-grandchildren．Even the idea of aging
is foreign to them．When asked “at what age does youth end?” ，most of these old people had no
answer．Several replied, “Well, perhaps at 80．”
What accounts for this ability to survive to such old age, and to survive so well? First of all,
hard physical work is a way of life for all of these long-lived people．They begin their long days of
physical labor as children and never seem to stop．For example, Mr. Rustam Mamedov is 142
years of age．His wife is 116 years old．They have been married for 90 years．Mr. Mamedov has
no intention of retiring from his life as a farmer．“Why? What else would I do?” he asks．
All these people get healthful rewards from the environment in which they work．They all
come from mountainous regions．They live and work at elevations of 1,660 to 1,000 meters above
sea level．The air has less oxygen and is pollution-free．This reduced-oxygen environment makes
the heart and blood vessel system stronger．
Another factor that may contribute to the good health of these people is their isolation．To a
great extent．They are separated from the pressures and worries of industrial society．
Inherited factors also play some role．Most of the longest-lived people had parents and
grandparents who also reached very old ages．Good family genes may, therefore, be one factor in
It is clear that isolation from urban pressures and pollution, clean mountain air, daily hard
word, moderate diets, good genes, and a youthful approach to life all contribute to the health and
long life of all these people．
31．In the Causasus region of Russian, how many people can reach the age of 100 in 10,000?
A．5 B．3 C．50 D．10,000
32．The example of Mr. and Mrs. Mamedov implies that ___________．
A．some Caucasians aged 100 to 140 become weak．
B．some Caucasians aged 100 to 140 are too old to work in the fields．
C．physical work contributes a lot to their long life．
D. some Caucasians aged 100 to 140 are still working in the fields besides their great- great-
33．What is the main way of life for all of these long-lived people?
A．Retiring from their lives as farmers B．Having been married for 90 years
C．Hard physical work D．No intentions
34．At elevations of 1,220 to 1,000 meters above sea level, the air ______
A．has less oxygen B．is polluted
C．is pollution-free D．both A and C
35．The following factors except _________ contribute to the health and long life of all these
A．clean mountain air B．daily hard work
C．stress and pressure D．good genes
The library is one of the most popular places at a western university. Students turn to it for
research, conversations about class, and many other services.
Compared with Chinese college libraries, college libraries in the US and UK tent to offer more
resources. A postgraduate at Yale University can borrow as many as 225 books at a time.
In addition to borrowing books, there are online and electronic resources. These include a
database search of popular and academic material, such as LexisNexis Academic, which offer items
from newspapers and magazines.
Although books and articles are the items that students ask for most frequently, some libraries
provide audio and video recordings, maps and sheet music （活页乐谱）. At some schools,
teachers and tutors put electronic copies of their teaching PPTs on the library Web to give easier
access for students.
Another useful service in Western college libraries is the Interlibrary Loan. This allows a student at
one school to borrow books from another school. The loan request is made through the student’s
college library, which gets the book, gives it to the user, and arranges for its return.
Technology has brought more services to students and has made libraries attractive. Some
universities have services for students to send messages through the computer or mobile texts to
ask the library staff for information.
Earlier this year, Harvard University introduced a new Scan and Deliver service, allowing students
to make requests for parts of books and articles. Requests made through the system are handled
by library staff. The student receives and e-mail with an Internet link to the scanned pages. The
service is free and all material comes within four days.
It used to be that libraries didn’t allow food or drinks. But that rule is changing and many of them
now contain a café so students can spend as much time as they want in the library. Actually, some
US university libraries are now all-night affairs, or have at least one study room open all night.
36. In Western college libraries a postgraduate can ______.
A. have a free drink or a meal B. borrow as many books as they want
C. access not only books but other study resources D. ask questions and get answers from their
37. LexisNexis Academic is the name of ______.
A. a database B. a library C. a university D. a guide
38. How can a college student borrow books from other college’s libraries?
A. By going to these libraries. B. By sending messages through the computer or mobile texts.
C. By getting them through the Internet. D. By borrowing them through their own library.
39. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
A. Chinese library services are better than western ones.
B. Library staff play an important role in college library service.
C. Postgraduates can post their own PPTs to the library website.
D. 24-hour services are adopted in all western libraries nowadays.
40. Why are university libraries more attractive now?
A. Because students can eat and drink there at any time.
B. Because students can have a stay-over there all night.
C. Because students can enjoy quicker and more convenient services.
D. Because students can borrow anything they want there.
LONDON, England（CNN）--- The youngest person to sail solo around the world returned
home Thursday from his 30,000-mile, 282-day ocean journey.
Mike Perham, 17, sailed into Lizard Point in Cornwall, the southernmost point in Britain, at
9:47 a.m., his race team said.
“It feels absolutely brilliant,” Mike told CNN by phone hours before crossing the finish line.
“I'm really, really excited to be going across the line at last. It doesn't feel like long since I crossed it
Mike set off on his round-the-world trip on November 18, 2008. He has been sailing his yacht,
TotallyMoney.com, single-handedly, though a support team has been sailing next to him along the
The teen has now achieved the title of Youngest Sailor to Circumnavigate the Globe Solo,
according to the Guinness World Records.
Mike learned how to sail when he was seven years old from his father, Peter and at age 14, he
sailed across the Atlantic alone.
The teenager's school --- which Mike describes as “highly supportive” of his trip --- has
redesigned his coursework to fit in with his trip. It also gave him some coursework to do during

turned it on its side. “My feet were on the ceiling at the time,” he told CNN. “That was a really
hairy moment, and I was certainly thinking, ‘Why am I here?’ But we took the sails off and the day
after I thought, ‘This is brilliant!’”
Mike describes his father as his biggest hero, always supportive of what he wanted to achieve.
Peter Perham said he wasn't too worried about his son facing dangerous situations at sea, as long
as he knew what to do and stayed safe.

5 steps to getting the best price in buying a new car. Ideally, a dealership should help you find the
right vehicle at a fair price. But some dealers place more emphasis on their profit margins than on
satisfying their customers. Read the following situations and match the advice with them.
46. Many dealerships prey on the unprepared. Going into a showroom “cold”--without having
gathered key facts and preliminary(初步的) pricing figures--gives the salesperson too much
control over the buying process.
47. The dealer invoice price is commonly available on Web sites and in pricing guides. But the
invoice price isn't necessarily what the dealer paid. There are often behind-the-scenes
bonuses（幕后红利）, such as dealer incentives and holdbacks, that give the dealer more
48. Salespeople like to mix financing, leasing, and trade-in negotiations together, often asking you
to negotiate around a monthly payment figure. This tactic（策略） gives the dealer more
latitude to offer you a favorable figure in one area while inflating figures in another.
49. The salesperson may try to sign you up for a higher rate than you could get elsewhere.
50. Dealers often try to sell you extras such as rust proofing, fabric protection, and paint
protectant, or push etching your Vehicle Identification Number on windows to deter thieves.
When buying a car, keep your interests front and center--and avoid common pitfalls（缺陷） that
can cost you extra money--by following these tips:
A. Don't assume that the sticker price（标价） is the purchase price（买价）.
To get the lowest price, go in with a starting price that's based not on the sticker price but on
how much the dealer paid for the vehicle.
A reasonable price to start negotiations is either 4 to 8 percent over what the dealer paid or the
CR Wholesale Price, depending on the demand for the model.
B. Do your homework.
Thoroughly research your choices. Read a variety of reviews. Check the reliability, safety, fuel
economy, and pricing of any models you're considering. And don't wait until the day you plan to
buy to test drive the vehicles. If you have a trade-in, know its approximate worth. That will depend
on the vehicle's age, condition, mileage, and equipment, as well as where you trade it in.
C. Negotiate one thing at one time.
Make clear that you want the lowest possible mark-up over your starting price. Add that you
intend to visit other dealerships selling the same vehicle and will buy from the dealer with the best
Only after you've settled on the price should you discuss financing, leasing, or a trade-in, as
necessary. Negotiate each item individually. Remember, you're in charge and can leave at any time.
Heading for the door can sometimes jump-start a slow-moving negotiation or bring a lower offer.
D. Don't pay for extras you don't need.
Don't accept those unnecessary services and fees. If the items are on the bill of sale, put a line
through them. Vehicle bodies are already coated to protect against rust. And CR reliability surveys
show that rust is not a major problem with modern cars. You can treat upholstery and apply paint
protectant yourself with good off-the-shelf products. You can also do your own VIN etching with a
kit that costs about $25.
E. Other costs.
In addition to the vehicle price, you need to consider other costs, including: Sales tax ; Registration
fees ; Insurance premiums
Taxes and registration fees can increase your out-of-pocket cost by as much as 10 percent or
more, and driving a car that’s worth more than your current one will cost more to insure. Be sure
to check with your insurance agent or get insurance quotes online so you understand what you’re
F. Arrange financing in advance.
Compare interest rates at several banks, credit unions, and loan organizations before checking
the dealer's rates. If pre-approved for a loan, you can keep financial arrangements out of the
negotiations. Automakers may offer attractive financing terms, but make sure you qualify for them.

第二节 读写任务 (共1小题，满分25分)
Dear Ms Jordan,
I am sorry for misbehaving in class .I won't do it again.
Tyler Vincent Turner
This is a letter of apology that my six-year-old son Tyler wrote to his teacher .It was simple
enough and took less than five minutes to write, but I hoped the message I was sending to Tyler
was one that would have a lasting effect.
When I made the decision, I hoped it was the right thing to do. It turned out that Ms Jordan was
excited when she received the note. She told me that in her 25 years as a teacher， no student had
ever written her a letter of apology for misbehavior . She literally looked like she was going to cry.
I want him to realize that he is responsible for his behavior, good or otherwise .That’s why I
decided to make him write the letter of apology .I didn’t tell him what to write--- the words were
his own. And he did so without any unwillingness and gave it to his teacher this morning with a
verbal apology. If it happens again, he’ll have to write another letter. Taking responsibility for your
own actions should start as young as possible and a six-year-old boy is certainly old enough.

Nowadays, with the development of the Internet, more and more people like to use Web
Language in writing and communication and some people even speak Chinese mixed with English
letters，so our class have had a discussion about whether we should use Web Language.
40 % of the students think / hold the view that it is kind of ridiculous and hard to understand
and in their opinion, using web language not only has bad effects on learning English, but also
makes the Chinese language less standard and pure, finally ruining our mother tongue. However, the
others，60 % of our class, are fond of the Web Language for the reason that it is simple, convenient
and helpful in expressing themselves and what’s more, it makes the language more interesting.
In my opinion, it’s not a good habit to use the Web Language. It may be popular as some
people think, but you may also make yourself misunderstood.
Learn to apologize
The passage tells us that the writer requires his son to write a letter of apology to his teacher
for his bad behavior in class to teach him how to be responsible for his behavior.(35字)
I have written letters of apology to my teacher before. I remembered that at the age of 7,
when having English lessons, I pulled my classmate’s chair aside when he was about to sit down
after answering questions. As a result, he fell onto the ground and cried. The whole class burst out
laughing. My English teacher was so angry that I had to apologize by writing a letter to her and she
If I behaved badly in class, I would write a letter of apology to my teachers due to the
following reasons. Firstly, I should take responsibility for my own mistakes. Secondly, writing letters
of apology to teachers can help remind myself not to behave badly in class. Finally, it is a good way
of communicating with teachers when they are in anger.
