A One day, when 12-year-old Sean went to a popular chat room on the Internet, he saw the name of someone he’d never seen there before, Susan Hicks. Her message was “Would someone help me? I can’t breathe. Help me! I can’t feel my left side.” At first, Sean thought it was a bad joke and he told his mother Sharon Redden. But she asked, “It’s not just some game, is it?” The message was not a joke. “Susan Hicks” was actually 20 -year-old Taijia Laitinen, a student working late at night at a college library near Helsinki, Finland —almost 7000 miles away from Sean’s home in Texas. While searching the Internet, she began to feel terrible pain all through her

body. The library was empty and the nearest phone was outside in the halfway. She couldn’t move that far because any movement caused the pain to get worse. Then as the pain became worse, she began typing her message for help in the chat room. “I don’t think it’s a joke. Mom.” Sean said. He typed, “Where are you? The letter s answered, “Finland.” Sean and Sharon couldn’t believe it. Not knowing what else to do, Sharon called the local police and explained the situation to officer Amy Schmidt. Schmidt told Sharon to try to get the sick girl’s phone number and address. ” Meanwhile, the Texas police called the international telephone operator and asked to be connected to the proper agency( 机构)in Finland. The Texas police explained the situation and gave Susan’s address to the Finnish operator. When Sean heard that, he typed, “Help is on the way.” In the few minutes, the library door opened. Doctors and three policemen ran in. Taijia turned once more to the computer, “They are here. Thanks. Bye -bye.” 56. At first when receiving the message for help, Sean__________. A. didn’t bel ieve it B. took no notice of it C. called the police at once D. had a joke with the person 57. What was the problem with the person who asked for help? A. She lost her phone. B.

There is a way B. to be arriving soon C. have a long way to arrive D. to have almost finished 60. What would be the best title for the text? A. Help yourself B. A helping hand C. Help is on the way D. Help on the Internet B If you want to become a fluent English speaker you should take some advice ：There are four skills in learning English. They are reading, listening ，speaking and writing. The most important thing you must remember is that if you want to improve your speaking and writing skills you should first master the skills of reading and listening. Read as much as you can. But your reading must be active. It means that you must think about the meaning of the sentence， the meaning of the unfamiliar words ， etc. There is no need for you to pay much attention to grammars or try to understand all the unfamiliar words you come across ， but the fact that you see them for the first time and recognize them whenever you see them, for example in other passages or books ，is enough. It would be better to prepare yourself a notebook so you can write down the important words or sentences in it. As for listening ，there are two choices ：besides reading ，you can listen every day for about 30 minutes. You can only pay attention to your reading and become skillful at your reading ，then you can catch up on your listening. Since you have lots of inputs in your mind, you can easily guess what the speaker is going to say. This never means that you should not practice listening. For listening you can listen to cartoons or some movies that are specially made for children. Their languages are easy. Or if you are good at listening you can listen to VO A or BBC programs every day. Again the thing to remember is being active in listening and preferably taking some

notes. If you follow these pieces of advice ， your speaking and writing will improve automatically ， and you can be sure that with a title effort they will become perfect. 61．According to the author，which should you improve first among the four skills?

But Picasso, the great Spainish painter, was like a man who had not yet found his own particular style of painting. He kept on struggling to find the perfect expression till his death in 1973. Some of Picasso’s paintings are rich, soft colored and beautiful. Others are ugly and cruel and strange. But such paintings allow us to imagine things for ourselves. They force us to say to ourselves, “What does he see that makes him paint like that?” And we begin to look beneath the surface of the things we see. Picasso painted thousands of pictures in different styles. Sometimes he painted the natural look of things. Sometimes he seemed to break them apart and throw the pieces in our faces . He showed us what the mind knows as well as waht the eye sees. At the age of 90 je remained as curious about the world as he had been when he was young. That is why people have called him “the youngest painter in the world.” 66. In the passage the writer wants to tell us _____. A. about Picasso’s style of painting. B.

There are only a few men in all of the history, who have changed the lives of other men as much as the inventor of the first useful electric light. But Edison could never be happy only because someone said he was a genius.“ There is no such thing as genius,” Edison said. He said that what people called genius was mostly hard work. But Edison was a dreamer as well as a worker. From his earliest days as a child he wondered about the secrets of nature. Nature, he often said, is full of secrets. He tried to understand them; then, he tried to learn what could usefully be done with them. Edison enjoyed thinking. He knew that most people will do almost anything instead of the difficult work of thinking, especially if they do not think very often. But he knew, too, that thinking can give men enjoyment and pleasure. Edison could not understand how anyone could be uninterested in life. As he loved to think, he also loved to work. On the day he became 75 years old, someone asked him what ideas he had about life. “Work,” he answered. “Discovering the secrets of nature and using them to make men happier.” He said he had enough inventions in his mind to give him another 100 years of work. 71. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A. Edison invented the electric light. B. Many other people have changed Edison’s life. C. Edison has changed the life of many other people. D. Few men in history can change other people’s life. 72. Edison thought ____________. A. he could be happy if he was a genius B. genius plays the most important part in one’s success C. hard work could do better than genius D. genius could do better than hard work 73. Edison was ____________. A. very much interested in nature B. interested in discovering the secrets of nature C. interested in changing people’s ideas D. uninterested in making people happier by discovering the secrets of nature 74. In Edison’s opinion, ____________. A. thinking can supply people with enjoyment and pleasure as well as help B. people’s successs lies mostly in genius C. hard work is the second important thing in making people successful D. there are few secrets for him to discover later
