Jimmy is an automotive mechanic , but he lost his job a few months ago

. He has a good heart , but always feared applying for a job. One day, he gathered up all his strength and decided to attend a job interview. His appointment was at 10 am and it was already 8:30. While waiting for a bus to the office where he was supposed to be interviewed , he saw an elderly man wildly kicking the tyre of his car. Obviously there was something wrong with the car. Jimmy immediately went up to lend him a hand . When Jimmy finished working on the car , the old man asked him how much he should pay for the service. Jimmy said there was no need to pay him; he just helped someone in need , and he had to rush for an interview. Then the old man said,”Well , I could take you to the office for your interview. It ’s the least I could do. Please , I insist.” Jimmy agreed. Upon arrival , Jimmy found a long line of applicants waiting to be interviewed. Jimmy still had some grease on him after the car repair , but he did not have much time to wash it off or have a change of shirt. One by one , the applicants left the interview ’s office with disappointed looks on their faces. Finally his name was called. The interviewer was sitting on a large chair facing the office window. Rocking the chair back and forth, he asked, “ Do you really need to be interviewed?’’ Jimmy’s heart sank. “ With the way I look now , how could I possibly pass this interview?’’ he thought to himself. Then the interviewer turned the chair and to Jimmy’s surprise , it was the old man he helped earlier this morning. It turned out he was the General Manager of the company. “Sorry , I had to keep you waiting , but I was pretty sure I made the right decision to have you as part of our workforce before you even stepped into this office. I just know you’d be a trustworthy worker. Congratulations.’’ Jimmy sat down and they shared a cup of well-deserved coffee as he landed himself a new job. 56. Why did Jimmy apply for a new job? A. He was out of work. B. He was bored with his job. C.He wanted a higher position. D.He hoped to find a better boss. 57. What did Jimmy see on the way to the interview? A. A friend’s car had a flat tyre. B. A wild man was pushing a car. C. A terrible car accident happened. D. An old man’s car broke down. 3. Why did the old man offer Jimmy a ride? A. He was also to be interviewed. B. He needed a traveling companion. C. He always helped people in need. D. He was thankful to Jimmy. 4. How did Jimmy feel on hearing the interviewer ’s question? A. He was sorry for the other applicants.

B. There was no hope for him to get the job. C. He regretted helping the old man. D. The interviewer was very rude. 5. What can we learn from Jimmy’s experience? A. Where there is a will , there is a way. B. A friend in need is a friend indeed. C. Good is rewarded with good. D. Two heads are better than one. B We each have a memory. That’s why we can still remember things after a long time. Some people have very good memories and they can easily learn many things by heart , but some people can only remember things when they do them again and again. Many of the great men of the world have surprising memories. A good memory is a great help in learning a language. Everybody learns his mother language when he is a small child. He hears the sounds , remembers them and then he learns to speak. Some children are living with their parents in foreign countries. They can learn two languages as easily as one because they hear , remember and speak two languages every day. In school it is not so easy to learn a foreign language because the pupils have so little time for it , and they are busy with other subjects , too. But your memory will become better and better when you do more and more exercises. 6. Before a child can speak , he must_________. A. read and write B. make sentences C. hear and remember the sounds D. Think hard 7. In school the pupils can’t learn a foreign language easily because__________. A.they have no good memories B. They have no recorders C.they have too much time for it D. They’re busy with other subjects 8. You will have a better memory if __________. A. You have a lot of good food B. You do more and more exercises C. You do morning exercises every day D.you get up early C When we moved to China seven months ago from the States , we were very worried about what we would be eating , and how we would live. We never thought that we would fall in love with the Chinese eating habits and style. We also never imagined that we have lost 80 pounds . We thought that we should share some of our tricks with you. Here is the Chinese Diet--five easy things you can do to lose weight. Use a small bowl--much smaller Go into your cupboard and find your smallest bowl. Now that will be the bowl that you will eat out of. By doing this you actually pick much less food than you are naturally served. Vegetables are your main course For example , you might have one plate of a cucumber dish , one of corn &carrots , and then another with ribs. Find a few dishes that your whole family loves and rotate(轮换) those. Cut down on your meat and dairy

We eat very little meat . So do most Chinese. We eat very little dairy, milk and yogurt. Use chopsticks to eat We love eating with chopsticks and wonder why we didn’t use them more at home. You eat a lot slower , A LOT. Introduce rice and noodles into your meals A Chinese diet includes a lot of rice and noodles. So our daily diet is no different , we eat rice and noodles 3 times a day. We wish we had known these simple tricks back home that make such a difference in our waistline. 9. According to the text , the author_________. A. moved to China to lose weight B. became much thinner eating the Chinese way C. does not really enjoy Chinese food D. had known much about Chinese food before 10. Which of the following is advised by the author? A. Eat more vegetables and less meat. B. Keep using the same bowl. C. Try all kinds of chopsticks. D. Learn to cook rice and noodles. 11. People are advised to use the smallest bowl to__________. A. eat less food B. eat more slowly C. Adapt to the Chinese lifestyle D. Experience the Chinese culture D China is a land of bicycles. At least it was back in 1992 when I traveled the country. Back then every one seemed to be riding a bicycle. Millions of them , all black. Cars were rare. Yet since my arrival in Beijing last year , I’ve found the opposite is true. There are millions of cars. However , people still use their bicycles to get around. For many , it’s the easiest and cheapest way to travel today. Bicycles also come in different colors---silver, green, red, blue, yellow, whatever you want. It’s fun watching people biking. They rush quickly through crossroads , move skillfully through traffic , and ride even on sidewalks. Bicycles allow people the freedom to move about that cars just can’t provide. Eager to be part of this aspect of Chinese culture , I decided to buy a bicycle. Great weather accompanied my great buy. I immediately jumped up on my bicycle seat and started home. My first ride home was orderly. To be safe , I stayed with a “pack” of bikers while cars on the streets came running swiftly out of nowhere at times. I didn’t want to get hit. So I took the ride carefully. Crossing the streets was the biggest problem. It was a lot like crossing a major highway back in the United States. The streets here were wide, so crossing took time , skill and a little bit of luck. I finally made it home. The feeling on the bicycle was amazing. The air hitting my face and going through my hair was wonderful. I was sitting on top of the world as I passed by places and people. Biking made me feel alive. 12. According to the author , why are bicycles still popular in China today?

A. Because they are traditional and safe. B. Because they are convenient and inexpensive. C. Because they are colorful and available. D. Because they are fast and environment friendly. 13.The author decided to buy a bicycle because he intended______. A. to ride it for fun B. to use it for transport C. to experience local culture D. to improve his riding skills 14.How did the author feel about his street crossing? A.It was boring. B. It was difficult C.It was lively. D. It was wonderful. 15.Which of the following best describes the author ’s biking experience? A. The author enjoyed showing off his biking skills. B. The author was annoyed by the air while riding. C. The author was praised by the other bikers. D. The author took great pleasure in biking. E George Gershwin , born in 1898 , was one of America’s greatest composers . He published his first song when he was eighteen years old. During the next twenty years he wrote more than five hundred songs. Many of Gershwin’s songs were first written for musical plays performed in theaters in New York City. These plays were a popular form of entertainment in the 1920sand 1930s. Many of his sons have remained popular as ever. Over the years they have been sung and played in every possible way--from jazz to country. In the 1920s there was a debate in the United States about jazz music. Could jazz, some people asked, be considered serious music? In 1924 jazz musician and orchestra leader Paul Whiteman decided to organize a special concert to show that jazz was serious music. Gershwin agreed to compose something for the concert before he realized he had just a few weeks to do it. And in that short time, he composed a piece for piano and orchestra which he called Rhapsody in Blue. Gershwin himself played the piano at the concert. The audience were thrilled when they heard his music. It made him world-famous and showed that jazz music could be both serious and popular. In 1928 , Gershwin went to Paris. He applied to study composition with the well-known musician Nadia Boulanger , but she rejected him. She was afraid that classical study would ruin his jazz-influenced style. While there, Gershwin wrote An American in Paris . When it was first performed , critics were divided over the music. Some called it happy and full of life, to others it was silly and boring. But it quickly became popular in Europe and the United States. It still remains one of his most famous works. Gershwin died in 1937 , just days after doctors learned he had brain cancer. He was only thirty-nine years old. Newspapers all over the world reported his death on their front pages. People mourned the loss of the man and all the music he might have still written. 16. Many of Gershwin’s musical works were__________. A. Written about New Yorkers B. Composed for Paul Whiteman

C. Played mainly in the countryside D. Performed in various ways 17.What do we know about the concert organized by Whiteman? A.It attracted more people to theaters. B.It proved jazz could be serious music. C. It made Gershwin leader of the orchestra. D.It caused a debate among jazz musicians. 18. What did Gershwin do during his stay in Paris? A. He created one of his best works. B. He studied with Nadia Boulanger. C. He argued with French critics. D. He changed his music style. 19. What do we learn from the last paragraph? A. Many of Gershwin’s works were lost . B. The death of Gershwin was widely reported. C. A concert was held in memory of Gershwin. D. Brain cancer research started after Gershwin’s deaths. 20. Which of the following best describes Gershwin? A. Talented and productive. B. Serious and boring. C. Popular and unhappy. D. Friendly and honest. 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,并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Forgiveness To forgive is a virtue, but no one has ever said it is easy. When someone has deeply hurt you, it can be extremely difficult to let go of your hate. However, forgiveness is possible, and it can be surprisingly beneficial to your physical and mental health. People who forgive show less sadness, anger and stress and more hopefulness, according to a recent research. ________21_______ Try the following steps: Calm yourself. ________22_______ You can take a couple of breaths and think of something that gives you pleasure: a beautiful scene in nature, or someone you love. Don’t wait for an apology. Many times the person who hurt you does not intend to apologize. They may have wanted to hurt you or they just don’t see things the same way. ________23_______ Keep in mind that forgiveness does not necessarily mean becoming friends again with the person who upset you. Take the control away from your offender(冒犯者). Rethinking about you hurt gives power to the person who causes you pain. Instead of focusing on your mounded feelings, learn to look for the love, beauty and kindness around you. ________24_______ If you understand your offender, you may realize that he or she was acting out of unawareness, fear, and even love. You may want to write a letter to yourself from your offender ’s point of view. Don’t forget to forgive yourself. ________25_______ But it can rob you of your self-confidence if you don’t do it. A. Why should you forgive? B. How should you start to forgive?

C. Recognize the benefits of forgiveness. D. Try to see things from you offender ’s angle. E. For some people, forgiving themselves is the biggest challenge. F. To make your anger die away, try a simple stress-management technique. G. If you wait for people to apologize, you could be waiting an awfully long time. 第二部分 完形填空(共 30 小题;每小题 1. 5 分,满分 45 分) 第一节 阅读下面短文,从短文后各题所给的四个选项(A、B、C、D)中,选出 可以填入空白处的最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 There was a pet store and the owner had a parrot.

It’s useful and necessary to discuss learning habits. As we all know, learning habits play a key role in our study. Only if we form a good learning habit, can we learn efficiently. Among learning habits, reviewing regularly is a most important one. If we go over our notes and textbook regularly, they will become more meaningful and be remembered easily. How should we do to develop such a good habit? I think making a practical plan and sticking to it will be of great help. In addition, I think it also important to turn to our teachers for advice. But there also exit many problems. For example, I can’t take down what the teachers say in class. To improve this situation, I decide to learn to take notes quickly and try to focus on the important points.
