第四部分 阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） A Global Positioning Systems are now a part of everyday driving in many countries. These satellite-based systems provide turn-by-turn directions to help people get to where they want to go. But, they can also cause a lot of problems, send you to the wrong place or leave you completely lost. Many times, the driver is to blame. Sometimes a GPS? error is responsible. Most often, says Barry Brown, an expert in human-computer inter-action, it is a combination of the two. We spoke to Mr. Brown by Skype(网络电话软件), he told us about an incident involving a friend who had flown to an airport in the eastern United States. There he borrowed a GPS-equipped car to use during his stay. Barry Brown: “And they just plugged in an address and then set off to their destination. And, then it wasn?t until they were driving for thirty minutes that they realized they actually put in a destination back on the West Coast where they lived. They actually put their home address in. So again, the GPS is kind of ?garbage in garbage out?”. Mr. Brown says this is a common human error. But, he says, what makes the

problem worse has to do with some of the shortcomings, or failures, of GPS equipment. Barry Brown: “One problem with a lot of the GPS units is they have a very small screen and they just tell you the next turn. Because they just give you the next turn, sometimes that means that it is not really giving you the overview that you would need to know that it?s going to the wrong place. ” Barry Brown once worked on a project with Eric Laurier from the University of Edinburgh. The two men studied the effects of GPS devices on driving by placing cameras in people?s cars. They wrote a paper based on their research. It is called “The Normal, Natural Troubles of Driving with GPS”. It lists several areas where GPS systems can cause confusion for drivers. These include maps that are outdated, incorrect or difficult to understand. They also include timing issues related to when GPS commands are given. Barry Brown says, “To make GPS systems better we need a better understanding of how drivers, passengers and GPS systems work together. ” 56. In Paragraph 2, Mr. Brown mentioned his friend in the conversation to . A. build up his own reputation B. laugh at his stupid friend C. prove the GPS system is only garbage D. describe an example of human error 57. What is the disadvantage of small screens in GPS equipment according to the text? A. They just provide the next turn. B. They are harmful to eyes. C. They make drivers tired easily. D. They often break down suddenly. 58. With which of the following statements would Barry Brown most likely agree? A. GPS units are to blame for most GPS service failures. B. We should introduce higher standards for the driving license. C. Cameras are urgently needed to help improve GPS systems. D. Drivers, GPS systems and passengers should unite to improve GPS systems. 59. What would be the best title for the text? A. Driving with GPS can be difficult. B. Driving confusions can be caused by small screens. C. Driving without GPS should be much more convenient. B Planning a visit to the UK? Here we help with ways to cut your costs. AVOID BIG EVENTS Big sporting events, concerts and exhibitions can increase the cost of accommodation and make it harder to find a room. A standard

double room at the Thistle Brighton on the final Friday of the Brighton Comedy Festival (19 Oct.) cost $169.15 at Booking.com. A week later, the same room cost $118.15. If you can be flexible and want to know dates to avoid—or you're looking for a big event to pass your time—check out sites such as Whatsonwhen.com, which allows you to search for events in the UK by city, date and category. STAY AWAY FROM THE STATION If traveling to your destination by train, you may want to find a good base close to the station, but you could end up paying more for the sake of convenience at the start of your holiday . Don't be too choosy about the part of town you stay in. Booking two months in advance, the cheapest room at Travelodge's Central Euston hotel in London for Saturday 22 September was $95.95. A room just a tube journey away at its Covent Garden hotel was $75.75. And at Farringdon, a double room cost just $62.95. LOOK AFTER YOURSELF Really central hotels in cities such as London, Edinburgh and Cardiff can cost a fortune, especially at weekends and during big events. As an alternative consider checking into a self-catering flat with its own kitchen. Often these flats are hidden away on the top floors of city centre buildings. A great example is the historic O'Neill Flat on Edinburgh's Royal Mile, available for $420 for five days in late September, with room for four adults. GET ON A BIKE London's 'Boris bikes' have attracted the most attention, but other cities also have similar programs that let you rent a bicycle and explore at your own pace, saving you on public transport of car parking costs. Among the smaller cities with their own programs are Newcastle (casual members pay around $1.50 for two hours) and Cardiff (free for up to 30 minutes, or $5 per day). 60. The Brighton Comedy Festival is mentioned mainly to show big events may __________. A. help travelers pass time B. attract lots of travelers to the UK C. allow travelers to make flexible plans D. cause travelers to pay more for accommodation 61. The passage shows that the O'Neill Flat __________. A. lies on the ground floor B. is located in central London C. provides cooking facilities for tourists D. costs over $100 on average per day in late September 62. The main purpose of the passage is __________. A. to tell visitors how to book in advance

B. to supply visitors with hotel information C. to show visitors the importance of self-help D. to offer visitors some money-saving tips C You may not have heard of Ashoka, but for the past 27 years, this association, founded by Bill Drayton, has fought poverty ( 贫 穷 )and sickness, promoted education and encouraged small businesses. To support these worthy causes, Ashoka provides money for the world's most promising "change makers" seeking to solve (解决) urgent problems and would like to create a world in which every citizen is a change maker . Drayton believes that anyone can become an agent for change. The important thing is to simply give yourself permission. If you see a problem that you care about, you can help solve it. The young in particular are willing to accept this concept because at heart every child wants to grow into a happy, healthy, contributing adult. In fact It is many young people's ambition to set up programs or businesses that improve social conditions. An excellent example is an Ashoka project started in 1995 in Dhaka, which handled the rubbish problem facing the city ,helped local farmers and provided an income for poor people there . When Masqsood and Iftekhar began to study the problem of all the uncollected rubbish that lay in Dhaka?s streets, Attracting tats and disease , they discovered that 80% of it was natural waste . So they educated the poor people in the city to compost (把……制成堆粪)this waste . They knew that they would have a market for the end product because local farmers were struggling with chemical fertilizers (化肥) which were expensive and had reduced the natural minerals in the soil over the years . At first , they were refused ,but once they were able to persuade them that there was money to be made , the project took off. In 2009 sales were $14,000. Drayton is optimistic that in ten years Ashoka will be making really serious ,practical progress in bringing about social change by changing the way we look at economic development. 63. The underlined word "them" in Paragraph 3 probably refers to" _____ " A. the local farmers B. Masqsood and Iftekhar C. Drayton and his team D. the poor people in Dhaka 64. It can be concluded from the passage that anyone can become a change maker if he ____. A. considers Drayton's concept B. gets permission from Ashoka C. tries to improve social conditions D. is a young, happy and healthy adult

65. The authors attitude towards Ashoka's program can be described as _____. C. cautious D. forgiving D In 1974, after filling out fifty applications, gone through four interviews, and winning one offer, I took what I could get-a teaching job at what considered a distant wild area: western New Jersey. My characteristic optimism was alive only when I reminded myself that I would be doing what I had wanted to do since I was fourteen-teaching English. School started, but I felt more and more as if I were in a foreign country. Was this area rural area really New Jersey? My students took a week off when hunting season began. I was told they were also frequently absent in late. October to help their fathers make hay on the farms. I was a young woman from New York City, who thought that “Make hay while the sun shines” just meant to have a good time. But, still, I was teaching English. I worked hard, taking time off only to eat and sleep. And then there was my sixth-grade class-seventeen boys and five girls who were only six years younger than me. I had a problem long before I knew it. I was struggling in my work as a young idealistic teacher. I wanted to make literature come alive and to promote a love of the written word. The students wanted to throw spitballs and whisper dirty words in the back of the room. In college I had been taught that a successful educator should ignore bad behavior. So I did, confident that, as reasonable, but the text evidently ignored the fact that humans, particularly teenagers, rarely seem reasonable. By the time my boss, who was also my taskmaster, known to be the strictest, most demanding, most quick to fire inexperienced teachers, came into the classroom to observe me , the students exhibited very little good behavior to praise. My boss sat in the back of the room. The boy in the class were making animal noises, hitting each other while the girl filed their nails or read magazines. I just pretended it all wasn?t happening, and went on lecturing and tried to ask some inspiring questions. My boss, sitting in the back of the room, seemed to be growing bigger and bigger. After twenty minutes he left, silently. Visions of unemployment marched before my eyes. I felt mildly victorious that I got through the rest of class without crying , but at my next free period I had to face him. I wondered if he would let me finish out the day. I walked to his office, took a deep breath, and opened the door. He was sitting in his chair, and he looked at me long and hard. I said nothing. All I could think of was that I was not an English teacher; I had been lying to myself, pretending that everything was fine. When he spoke, he said simply, without accusation, “You had nothing to say to

them.” “You had nothing to say to them ,” he repeated. “No wonder they?re bored. Why get the meat of the literature and stop talking about symbolism. Talk with them, not at them. And more important, why do you ignore their bad behavior?” We talked. He named my problems and offered solutions. We role-played. He was the bad student, and I was the forceful, yet, warm, teacher. As the year progressed, we spent many hours discussing literature and ideas about human beings, he helped me identify my weaknesses and my strengths. In short, he made me the reality of Emerson?s words: “The secret to education lies in respecting the pupil.” Fifteen years later I still drive that same winding road to the same school. Thanks to the help I received that difficult first year, the school is my home now. 66. It can be inferred from the story that in 1974____ A. the writer became an optimistic person B. the writer was very happy about her new job C. it was rather difficult to get a job in the USA D. it was easy to get a teaching job in New Jersey 67. According to the passage, which of the following is most probably the writer ?s problem as a new teacher? A. She had blind trust in what she learnt at college B. She didn?t ask experienced teachers for advice C. She took too much time off to eat and sleep D. She didn?t like teaching English literature 68. What is the writer ?s biggest worry after her taskmaster ?s observation of her class? A. She might lose her teaching job B. She might lose her students? respect C. She couldn?t teach the same class any more D. She couldn?t ignore her students? bad behavior any more 69. Which of the following gives the writer a sense of mild victory? A. Her talk about symbolism abounded convincing B. Her students behaved a little better than usual C. She managed to finish the class without crying D. She was invited for a talk by her boss after class 70. The students behaved badly in the writer ?s classes because_____ A. they were eager to embarrass her B. she didn?t really understand them C. they didn?t regard her as a good teacher D. she didn?t have a good command of English

However, this issue frequently causes heated debate. Some people say that classical music is associated only with old people .For example, if you look at the audience at a classical concert, the majority is over the age of fifty. Others say it is more popular than we first imagine. Many young people listen to classical music without realizing. It is often used in films and advertisements. For example, a famous piece of classical music was used as the theme music for the 1990 World Cup. Not many people could have given its name, but millions enjoyed it . Also, some people point out that young people produce new music based on classical ideas: for example, it is said that rap music was invented by a classical musician in 1912, but it is now used by young people in pop music. However, young people point to the fact that classical music has been outstripped(超越) by technology. To play a classical instrument, such as a violin, you need to study hard and practice for hours. Nowadays, you don't need to get aching arms from practicing. A teenager can write and make music using a computer program in the comfort of their own bedroom. A final point to in mind is that the term "classical music" is used to refer to a great variety of music, from jazz to pieces for large orchestras(管弦乐队).This makes it even more difficult to say whether classical music is relevant to young people. So, it may be only a minority of young people who play classical instruments, but when it comes to enjoying classical music, it depends on the piece of music. It maybe appeals to young people in the modern world than they realize! Title Introductio n Opinions Classical Music The issue of whether classical music is (1) to young people causes heated debate.

第六部分 ：读写任务写作（满分 25 分） To many people even the word “work” sounds unpleasant， not necessarily because they are lazy. The same man, who dislikes his job in the factory or even in the office， may work hard at the weekend ,painting the house or digging the garden. What is the reason ,then ？In most cases， it is because these people simply do not enjoy the job they are doing .It does not give them any real satisfaction .It may be quite easy ,like making up wooden boxes ,but it is very boring. Very often they are doing a job which is just a small part of a much larger one , such as attaching a door handle to a car .But the part they play in actually making the car is so small that they can never say :I have made something ! Yet in modern society somebody has to do ordinary jobs such as cleaning streets because this is the way society is organized. No matter how ordinary a job is, it plays a part in society and therefore deserves our due respect. Society cannot function a single day without the “dull and boring” jobs.

However, such common jobs play an important role in our modern society. Undoubtedly，they deserves to be respected. (30 words) There is no doubt that keeping the streets clean is a hard job. Street cleaners have to work outdoors every day from early morning till late night in spite of any bad weather and low pay. To be honest, if there were no cleaners to serve us, things would become worse and worse. Piles and piles of rubbish would be seen in the streets. Worse still, polluted water would flow and even drown the roads and streets, which develops the spread of diseases, seriously influencing people?s life and health. So we can?t imagine how terrible our life would be without cleaners. As far as I?m concerned, cleaners play an important role in our modern society, and it?s their effort and devotion that makes the whole world in harmony\harmonious, although they are doing a small, ordinary but boring job. No doubt, they should not be looked down upon but respected.
