第二部分 阅读理解 （共 25 小题, 满分 50 分）
第一节（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分, 满分 40 分） 阅读短文, 从每题所给四个选项（A、B、C、D）中选出最佳选项, 并在答题卡上将其涂黑。 A I travel a lot in my work, and what I dislike about my job is eating alone. It always makes me feel lonely to see others laughing and talking. So, room service for several nights was a better choice for me. After having room service three nights at a hotel in Houston, however, I needed to get out of my room. Although the restaurant opened at 6:30, I arrived at 6:25. The waiter at the front desk made a comment about my “being there really early”. I explained my dislike of eating alone in restaurants. He then seated me at a lovely table and asked me whether I would mind if he sat down with me for a while. I was glad! He sat and talked with me about his career goals and the difficulty of being at work on nights, weekends and holidays. He said he hadn’t enough time to be with his family. After 15 minutes, he saw some customers at the front desk and excused himself. I noticed that before he went to the front desk, he stopped in the kitchen for a moment. Then another waiter came out of the kitchen and had a wonderful chat with me. Before I left that night, some other waiters, even the cook, had come out of the kitchen and sat with me! When I asked for my bill about one hour later, all the people who had sat down with me came over in a big group to my table, and presented me with a red rose. And I cried! What had begun as a lonely night ended as a beautiful experience. 31. The author asked for room service because _______. A. a lot of money would be saved in this way B. he didn’t like to eat with other people around C. he didn’t wanted to be recognized by the waiters D. seeing people laughing and talking made him feel bad 32. How did the waiter feel when he saw the author come in at 6:25? A. Dissatisfied. B. Pleased. C. Surprised. D. Angry.
33. From the third paragraph, we can learn that the waiter at the front desk ______. A. knew how to attract more customers to his restaurant B. found it hard to balance his work and his family C. was getting tired of his present job D. had never had such a chance to talk about his worries 34. The author wants to tell us that ______. A. people are actually all lonely in their own way

B. restaurants should put the need of customers first C. the kindness of strangers can make you less lonely D. restaurants are full of surprises for lonely people B You can hear a soft sound as they approach. They look similar to skateboards but are actually quite different. They are longboards and are rapidly becoming a more common and stylish way to quickly get around. Longboarding began in the 1950s, originally known as sidewalk surfing because riders would move in a way that resembled catching a wave. The boards got their name because they are much longer and wider than skateboards, usually between 90 and 150 centimeters in length. Every kind of longboard consists of trucks, four wheels and a long deck. The size and shape vary, however, depending on how a rider plans to use it. Unlike their shorter cousins, longboards are not intended for doing tricks. Their most basic use is for travel. Commuting (往返) via longboard is now common on college campuses in the U.S.. However, they are good for far more than travel. Most longboarders enjoy the feeling that the board gives, a feeling similar to surfing. But some adventurous riders want more than a feeling. The sport of speedboarding appeals to these thrill-seekers who are looking for an adrenalin (肾上腺素) rush. Speedboards are designed for riding down hills at high speeds while keeping balance. Since the sport can be dangerous, riders usually wear suits and helmets, in the event of a fall. Those who don’t have the need for speed put their longboards to other good uses. Riders can compete in slalom ( 障 碍 赛 ) racing or long-distance riding, both of which require accuracy and strength. If you want something completely unique, there is even longboard dancing. This stylish set of moves is performed while rolling on a board. For feeling, speed or style, give a longboard a try. You might just discover you enjoy the ride. 35. We may learn from the underlined sentence that A. longboards can only be used for travel B. skateboards are meant for doing tricks C. shorter cousins don’t intend to play jokes D. longboards are popular on college campuses 36. If you are a thrill-seeker, you had better choose A. Speedboarding C. long-distance riding 37. The author wrote the passage to A. study the origin of longboards C. investigate the benefits of longboards . B. inform people of the latest product D. encourage people to take up longboarding . .
B. slalom racing D. longboard dancing

38. What would be the best title for the passage? A. Commuting via Longboard C. Longboarding Getting Around B. A Feeling Similar to Surfing D. Skateboards and Longboards C A lot of people are afraid spiders — even the small ones. But a big tarantula (鸟蛛) is much more terrifying for many. Now, scientists in Sri Lanka have discovered a huge species of tarantula that’s about the size of a person’s face. The first part of the spider ’s scientific name, Poecilotheria rajaei, comes from the Greek words for “spotted”(poikilos) and “wild beast” (therion). Its species name, rajaei, comes from a local police officer who helped the team that discovered the creature. Poecilotheria rajaei has 8-inch long legs, and unusual spots colored gray, pink, and yellow. Although it is very big, is there a real reason to be afraid of one? Maybe. This tarantula has enough poisonous fluid to kill mice and small birds and snakes — but its bite wouldn’t cause the death of most humans. Poecilotheria rajaei was first seen in 2009, when a villager in Sri Lanka found the body of a male and brought it to Ranil Nanayakkara, co-founder of Sri Lanka’s Biodiversity Education and Research organization. An examination of the awesome creature proved that it was a type of tarantula scientists hadn’t seen before. So Nanayakkara carefully looked through the Sri Lankan forests to try to find more of the spiders. It’s still too early to know whether this species is endangered. But researchers fear that the tarantulas’ natural habitat is slowly being destroyed. “They prefer old trees, but due to the widespread removal of trees the number has dropped,” Nanayakkara said in an interview. Tarantulas have eight legs and two body parts. They are different from insects, which have only six legs but three body parts. Tarantulas have hairy bodies and are usually larger than other types of spiders. Some species of tarantulas can live up to 25 years. While Poecilotheria rajaei is very big, the largest tarantula is the Goliath bird-eater (Theraphosa blondi). Found in the rainforests of South America, its legs can be up to 10 inches long. But don’t worry if you ever see one: Its poisonous fluid isn’t really dangerous to humans. 39. According to the text, Poecilotheria rajaei _______. A. has unique spots C. has 10-inch long legs B. is mostly yellow D. was first seen by the Greeks
40. Which of the following is most likely to survive a bite from Poecilotheria rajaei? A. A little girl. C. A big mouse. B. A small bird. D. A small snake.
41. The number of Poecilotheria rajaei has dropped because_________.

A. the global climate has changed C. some people are killing them illegally
B. they have too many natural enemies D. more and more forests are disappearing
42. Which section of a newspaper is the text most probably taken from? A. Life. B. Nature. D Surfing the net when you should be finishing a work report, changing clothes when you have a train to catch, or perhaps even lying in bed when you’ve promised yourself you’ll work out. Sound familiar? You aren’t alone. We all procrastinate (拖延) sometimes, especially when it comes to things we aren’t really fond of. A study revealed that we spend about 218 minutes procrastinating every day, which amounts to 55 days of lost time each year. We might not think these figures particularly worthy of worry, but when we look at the overall impact of procrastination on our lives, it’s a different story. Not only does this cost financial loss, it also affects peace of mind. In general, people who continually put things off are unhappier, as well as being less wealthy and healthy. So why do we do it? “When we avoid taking action, we’re really avoiding pain,” explains psychiatrist (精神病学家) Phil Stutz. For most of us, pain avoidance isn’t limited to one situation. It applies to almost anything that’s painful. Most of us try our best never to leave a comfort zone. That’s why we sacrifice something much more valuable: time. “Our time on earth is limited,” Stutz adds. “Every moment is an opportunity we’ll never have again. Procrastinators act as if they have all the time in the world. But deep down, they know they’re wasting parts of their life. The trouble is, most of them don’t know how to free themselves.” One way he says we can reach this level of freedom is by overcoming the pain of avoidance using daily visualization (想象). “Picture the pain you’re avoiding as a black cloud in front of you,” Stutz says. “Notice how you’re tired of the ways this pain has held you back in life, and tell yourself that you’re determined to conquer it. Then it’s time to get through the cloud and to the other side — where you’re free.” It is obvious that this tool works when we want to procrastinate. We then get into the habit of moving “towards” pain instead of away from it. Experts insist: procrastinators can change their behavior; it takes a lot of self-work but in the end, it’s worth the effort. And start today, not tomorrow. 43. The writer begins the passage by A. mentioning habitual activities C. presenting abnormal things . B. asking related questions D. comparing different opinions . C. Science. D. Business.
44. According to the passage, people procrastinate because they A. get accustomed to taking action C. are not aware of the limited time
B. don’t know how to free themselves D. prefer to stay in the comfort zone to avoid pain

45. One possible way to stop procrastination is to A. lie in bed C. overcome it mentally 46. What’s the writing purpose of the passage? A. To analyze the trouble procrastination causes. B. To show what contributes to procrastination. C. To encourage people to defeat procrastination. D. To solve the problems caused by procrastination. E
. B. avoid the pain D. reach the freedom
They say that sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never do the same thing. Yet childhood bullying (欺凌) really can damage your long-term health. Gone are the days when bullying was considered an unavoidable and finally harmless part of growing up — just last month we learned that childhood bullying can lead to poorer mental health even into middle age. Now William Copeland at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, and his colleagues have shown that it can have lasting physiological effects too. They tracked 1,420 nine-year-olds right through their teens. Each child was seen up to nine times during the study and asked about bullying. The team then measured levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) in their blood. CRP is a marker of inflammation (炎症) linked to higher risk of cardiovascular disease (心血管疾病) and problems like diabetes. “Because we were collecting biological samples throughout, we were able to look at CRP levels in subjects before their bullying involvement.” says Copeland. “This really gives us an idea of the changes bullying brings about.” Although CRP levels naturally rise in everyone during adolescence, levels were highest in children who reported suffering from bullies. Even at the ages of 19 and 21, children who had once been bullied had CRP levels about 1.4 times higher than peers who were neither wrongdoers nor victims. In a cruel twist, the bullies had the lowest levels of all, suggesting they didn’t suffer the same health risks. They may even see a benefit from their behavior, though Copeland stresses it doesn’t defend their actions. “The goal would instead be to find other ways to produce this protective effect without it being at someone else’s expense.” he says. Andrea Danese at King’s College London has before shown that ill-treatment during childhood can lead to high levels of inflammation in adult life. “This new study is a helpful addition in showing that these effects extend to another important childhood stressor.” he says. He suggests that care workers monitor levels of CRP in children having psychotherapy (心理疗法) to see if it is helping to reduce the stress of being bullied. 47. What do we know about CRP from Paragraph 2? A. It is a symbol of the inflammation. B. It directly causes problems like diabetes.

C. It is a symbol of cardiovascular disease. 48. What can be learned from Paragraph 3?
D. It is ignored by the researchers.
A. CRP levels naturally rise along with the increase of age. B. The bullies are not to blame for the health risks of the bullied. C. The bullies had higher levels of CRP than the bullied. D. The levels of CRP of the children once bullied are higher than their peers. 49. What might be Copeland’s attitude towards the bullies’ behavior? A. Disapproving. B. Defensive. C. Respectful. D. Supportive.
50. What is the main idea of this passage? A. Bullying is beneficial to the bullies. C. Bullying leads to high CRP levels. B. CRP levels reflect the risks of poorer health. D. Bullying has lasting harmful effects on a person.

I tore open the packet. My eyes were fixed on the word “congratulations”. I don’t remember ever smiling so wide. Then I looked at my financial package. The cost of Dream School’s tuition, room and board was around $40,000—an impossible sum! How could I afford to attend? What good reasons did I have to go there when three other fine colleges were offering me free tuition? My second-choice schools were those good, solid ones even if they weren’t as famous as my first-choice school. In my mind, attending my dream university would be the only way to realize my dream of becoming a world-class writer. My parents understood how I felt. They told me that even though it would be a financial problem, I could go wherever I would be happiest. But as I was always careful with money, I wasn’t sure what to do. One of the schools that offered me a full ride had an informational dinner one night in the spring. Considering my parents’ financial difficulties, I decided to drive the 45 minutes and attend. At first, all I had planned to do was smile politely, eat free food, listen quietly. But I surprised myself. At dinner the president of the university talked about the wonderful activities on campus including guest lectures and social gatherings. He also made it perfectly clear that free food would be offered at all future events. He continued with explanations of professors, class sizes, activities, and sporting events on campus. As he spoke, I began to realize that this school, though not as good as my first choice, might be the best one for me. It seemed small yet with many great programs, it seemed challenging yet caring. As the president ended his speech, we clapped politely and pushed back our chairs. As I walked out that door, a feeling of comfort washed over me. Looking at the campus that night, I realized that I would be spending the next four years right there. In all honesty, my university is not as well-known as my “dream” university. However, it turned out to be the right choice of schools for me. 56.

That sounds great, and I definitely agree you on that. Some of the columns what you mentioned in the letter are really my cup of tea. “Cultural Express” gives us a better understanding of the world. Since the people from different parts of the world have different values, it’s necessary to learn from each other. This will offer a wonderful chance. Apart from that, “Blurt Out” is pretty good for Chinese student to learn English idioms and improving oral English. Last but not least, “Entertainment” is so cool! The popular singers, actors or celebrities are so attractively that you absolutely can’t miss this part. Teenagers were just fond of popular things. Well, I can’t list more. I really can’t wait to read your magazine. Yours truly, Li Hua 第三节 书面表达（共35分） 某中学生英文报近期开辟专栏， 讨论中学生学习问题。 请你结合自身实际， 按以下提示， 用英文为该专栏写一篇稿件。 1. 描述在过去三年你遇到的一次学习上的困难以及怎样克服困难的； 2. 你对学习中困难的认识； 3. 请你对高中生解决学习上的困难提两条建议。 注意：1. 词数 120 左右，开头语已为你写好； 2. 可以适当增加细节，以使行文连贯； 3. 文中不得透露个人姓名和学校名称。 As we grow up, we are bound to meet with difficulties in our study. _____________________ _______________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________

作文范文： As we grow up, we are bound to meet with difficulties in our study. A difficulty I encountered was that I had strong Chinese accent while communicating with others in English, making everyone laugh at me. Confronted with the difficulty, I bought lots of CDs of native speakers’ public speaking, and tried to imitate their intonation every day. Besides, I often turned to the teacher for help, who always helped correct my pronunciation. As a result, I made great progress. We may inevitably meet some difficulties in our study but each man is the architect of his own fate and success always grows out of struggles to overcome difficulties, due to which we become tougher. To cope with our difficulties in study, we are supposed to find out the reasons first. What’s more, consulting our teacher can contribute a lot to solving the problem. Only in this way can we perform well and gain success.
