PvD is wellknown as one of the hardest working artists，with soldout tours that cross each continent，headline spots at every major festival，and a hugely successful recording career.With over 3 million albums sold worldwide，van Dyk travels around the world over 16 times each year for the soldout performances internationally. Born in Eisenhuettenstadt，East Germany，Paul van Dyk grew up in East Berlin.Because his community did not have a true club culture，Paul van Dyk listened to the radio where he discovered his passion for music that extended beyond Techno music—he wanted to create a different，more unique sound.In the early 1990’s Paul van Dyk was performing regularly at various clubs in Berlin before releasing his first album “45 RPM” in 1994.But it was the release of his second album“Seven Ways”that put him into Top 100，followed by the release of his hit single “For An Angel”， which began to earn him praise across the globe.By the time Paul van Dyk released “Out There & Back” in 2000，it became clear that the Berlinbased musician had far more to offer than his signature club sets that had already defined him as one of the most influential DJs and producers of all time.His first mix CD “Politics of Dancing” was released in 2001，followed by “Global” in 2003—a DVD which illustrates his own experiences traveling the world. 1．What activity does this passage introduce to us? A．Paul van Dyk Volume World Tour at Babyface Guangzhou. B．Grammy Prize Ceremony at Babyface Guangzhou.
C．Release of PvD’s original album Reflections. D．The foundation of Babyface China Official. 答案 A 解析 主旨大意题。文章开头有关活动时间、地点等信息的介绍以及前两段清楚地阐述 了本文的主要目的，即介绍 Paul van Dyk 在广州举办的专辑签售活动，所以 A 项正确。 2．Which album first made PvD into the Top 100? A．For An Angel. C．45 RPM. 答案 B 解析 事实细节题。根据第三段第四句的“But it was the release of his second album ‘Seven Ways’ that put him into Top 100...”可知 B 项正确。 3．According to the passage，PvD can be best described as________. A．intelligent but proud B．hardworking but absentminded C．optimistic and outgoing D．creative and potential 答案 D 解析 事实细节题。根据第三段第二句“he wanted to create a different，more unique sound”和第五句“...it became clear that the Berlinbased musician had far more to offer than his signature club sets that had already defined him as one of the most influential DJs and producers of all time.”可知 D 项正确。 4．PvD’s passion for music originated from________. A．performing at various clubs B．listening to the radio C．his tours across the globe D．his true club culture 答案 B 解析 事实细节题。根据第三段第二句中“...Paul van Dyk listened to the radio where he discovered his passion for music that extended beyond Techno music...”可知 B 项正确。 5．According to the passage，PvD________. A．is ranked the world’s No.1 DJ in Top 100 DJs Poll for life B．Seven Ways. D．Out There & Back.
B．shows us his traveling experience in “Global” C．sings about politics in his mix CD “Politics of Dancing” D．received Grammy Prizes several times 答案 B 解析 事实细节题。根据第一段最后一句“PvD...is currently ranked...for the second successive year.”可知他是第二年排名第一，而不是 for life(终生)，故 A 项错误。根据文 章最后一句“His first mix CD ‘Politics of Dancing ’was released in 2001，followed by‘Global’ in 2003—a DVD which illustrates his own experiences traveling the world.” 可知 B 项正确；而文中并没有提及 sings about politics，因此 C 项不正确。根据第一段第 一句“Grammy nominated(格莱美奖提名)artist”可知他只是被提名，故 D 项错误。 Ⅲ.短文改错 There are advantage for students to work while studying at school.One of them was that they can earn money.In the most part，students working to earn money for their own use.Earning their own money allow them to spend on anything as if they please.They would have to ask their parents for money or for permission to do things by the money.Some students may also to save up for our college or future use. 答案 There are advantage was for students to work while studying at school.One of them that advantages is In working the most part ， students to earn money for their own For work allow them to spend on anything as if\ they please.They would allows
