I would return from school and spend the expected half hour recording the day's events, feelings, and impressions in my little blue diary. I did not really need to express my emotions by way of words, but I gained a certain satisfaction from seeing my experiences forever recorded on paper. After all, isn't accumulating memories a way of preserving the past? When I was thirteen years old, I went on a long journey on foot in a great valley, well equipped with pens, a diary, and a camera. During the trip, I was busy recording every incident, name and place I came across. I felt proud to be spending my time productively, dutifully preserving for future generations a detailed description of my travels. On my last night there, I wandered out of my tent, diary in hand. The sky was clear and lit by the glare of the moon, and the walls of the valley looked threatening behind their screen of shadows. I automatically took out my pen... At that point, I understood that nothing I wrote could ever match or replace the few seconds I allowed myself to experience the dramatic beauty of the valley. All I remembered of the previous few days were the dull characterizations I had set down in my diary. Now, I only write in my diary when I need to write down a special thought or feeling. I still love to record ideas and quotations that strike me in books, or observations that are particularly meaningful. I take pictures, but not very often only of objects I find really beautiful. I'm no longer blindly satisfied with having something to remember when I grow old. I realize that life will simply pass me by if I stay behind the camera, busy preserving the present so as to live it in the future. I don't want to wake up one day and have nothing but a pile of pictures and notes. Maybe I won't have as many exact representations of people and places; maybe I'll forget certain facts, but at least the experiences will always remain inside me. I don't live to make memories--I just live, and the memories form themselves. 24. Before the age of thirteen, the author regarded keeping a diary as a way of ________. A. observing her school routine C. impressing her classmates A. A dull night on the journey. C. A striking quotation from a book. B. expressing her satisfaction D. preserving her history B. The beauty of the great valley. D. Her concerns for future generations.
25. What caused a change in the author's understanding of keeping a diary?
26. What does the author put in her diary now? A. Notes and beautiful pictures. C. Detailed accounts of daily activities. B. Special thoughts and feelings. D. Descriptions of unforgettable events.
27. The author comes to realize that to live a meaningful life is ________. A. to experience it C. to make memories B. to live the present in the future D. to give accurate representations of it
C The American Family Immigration History Center is an exciting new interactive area at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum where more than 100 million Americans may search for their family's beginnings in the New World. Now, for the first time, the passengers records of the ships that landed some 22 million immigrants, crewmembers and other passengers at the Port of New York and Ellis Island from 1892 to 1924 have been computerized, making it easier than ever to discover your own family history. Five years in the making, the center was developed and funded by the Statue of the LibertyEllis Island Foundation, Inc., which was responsible for the restoration and preservation of the Statue of the Liberty and Ellis Island, and the creation of the Immigration Museum. For visitors to the Museum, the excitement begins at a welcoming kiosk where you can enter ancestors' names and see if their arrival records are included in the database and are available in the History Center in the Museum's West Wing. Once inside the Center itself, in the very place where your ancestors (grandgrandparents) may have ended their long journey, you and your family can log on the one of 41 computers, type in name, and, within seconds, set in motion your own special journey of discovery. Imagine the excitement you'll share with your family as you use the latest technology to sort through a vast computerized archive (档案馆) with millions of records, and see your family's own personal story in America come to life before your eyes. Millions of hours were spent creating this vast database and, if you find your ancestors' names, you'll discover answers to questions you've always wondered about... What ship did my family members take? When did they arrive? How old were they? Were they married? Then, take these valuable records and create your own Family History Scrapbook, preserving forever the story of the past while keeping the legacy of your family alive. 28. Why is it easier for visitors to find their family histories in the History Center? A. More clerks are employed there. B. All of its documents are computerized.
C. Facilities of the museum are restored.
D. Workers are more creative than before.
29. Who sponsors the restoration of the American Family Immigration History Center? A. Families whose family histories are kept here. B. National Park Service in the United States. C. Local government and visitors to the Museum. D. The Statue of LibertyEllis Island Foundation, Inc. 30. The word “kiosk” in the passage is most probably______. A. a museum assistant C. a selfservice device B. an advertisement D. a receptionist
31. In which part of a newspaper would this passage most probably be found? A. Science. B. Entertainment. C. Life. D Nowadays more and more people are talking about genetically modified foods ( GM foods). GM foods develop from genetically modified organisms (有机体), which have had specific changes introduced into their DNA by genetic engineering techniques. These techniques are much more precise where an organism is exposed to chemicals to create a nonspecific but stable change. For many people, the hightech production raises all kinds of environmental, ethical, health and safety problems. Particularly in countries with long farming traditions, the idea seems against nature. In fact, GM foods are already very much a part of our lives. They were first put on the market in 1996. A third of the corn and more than half the cotton grown in the U. S. last year was the product of biotechnology, according to the Department of Agriculture. More than 65 million acres of genetically modified crops will be planted in the US this year. The genetic genie is out of the bottle. However, like any new product entering the food chain, GM foods must be subjected to careful testing. In wealthy countries, the debate about biotech is not so fierce by the fact that they have a large number of foods to choose from, and a supply that goes beyond the needs. In developing countries desperate to feed fastgrowing and underfed populations, the matter is simpler and much more urgent: do the benefits of biotech outweigh the risks? The statistics on population growth and hunger are disturbing. Last year the world's population reached 6 billion. The UN states that nearly 800 million people around the world are unhealthy. About 400 million women of childbearing age don' t have enough iron, which means their babies are exposed to various birth defeats.As many as 100 million children suffer from vitamin A deficiency, a leading cause of blindness. How can biotech help? Genetic engineering is widely used to produce plants and animals D. Travel.
with better nutritional values. Biotechnologists have developed genetically modified rice and they are working on other kinds of nutritionally improved crops. Biotech can also improve farming productivity in places where food shortages are caused by crop damage attributable to drought, poor soil and crop viruses. 32. The passage mainly talks about________. A. the world's food problem C. the genetically modified foods A. will replace naturally grown foods B. are far better than naturally grown foods C. may help to solve the problem of poor nutrition D. can cause serious trouble in developing countries 34. The underlined sentence “The genetic genie is out of the bottle.” in Paragraph 2 probably means that________. A. GM foods are available everywhere B. the technology in producing GM foods is advanced C. genetic technology may have uncontrollable powers D. genetic technology has come out of laboratories into markets 35. What's the writer's attitude towards GM foods? A. Enthusiastic. B. Cautious. C. Disapproving. D. Unbelievable. B. the development in biotech D. the way to solve food shortages
33. According to the passage, GM foods________.

Some decisions are very important that they shouldn’t be made without talking to others first. There have several advantages if you consult the persons you trust. For one thing, they can give you valuable advices and they may point out some things you may have been overlooked. For another, friends may stop you make big mistakes. When consulting others about important decisions, you should keep two things of mind. The first one is that you need to find someone whom you respect enough to trust their judgment. The second thing to consider is how to do if you disagree with this person. Maybe turning to a third or fourth person for help is a best option.

is I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t do well in your last exam. You are not the only one who
seems to try his best but ends up with a failure in exams. Quite a number of students feel the same way as you and they tend to lose their confidence and don’t want to study hard any longer. I’m sure you know that it’s unwise to do so because you might be left far behind. I was once in the same situation as yours. Failure is the mother of success. In face of failure, what we need to do is to calm down and reflect our learning methods and make some possible changes or to ask the teachers for advice. Anyway, Rome is not built in a day. Only by sticking to studying persistently can we make progress step by step till success. I truly hope I can be of some help to you. Yours ever, Li Ming 听力材料 (Text 1) M: Hi, Laura. Could you translate the paper for me? The manager needs it by 4 p.m. But I have to
attend a meeting now. W: All right. I’ll do it right away. (Text 2) M: Hi, Jamie. How was your performance in your maths class? W: I got the right answers on every single question, even from Mr Graham. M: That sounds great. I knew you were so worried about it. Good job! (Text 3) M: Did you go to the multicultural fair today? W: Yeah. It was really interesting. I tried some Korean barbeque, had some Thai iced tea and watched a native American dance. (Text 4) M: It’s my first time here. Can you tell me how to use the lab? W: You should either go to any computer or come to the help desk to reserve a computer. If you want to print something, you can go to the next room. (Text 5) M: I lost my ID card. What do I do to replace it? W: Fill out your name and social security number on this form, and stand behind that line. I’ll take your picture here. M: OK. I’m ready. W: I’ll print you the new ID card in about a minute. (Text 6) W: Excuse me? Can you tell me how to get to the Language Arts building? M: Sure. Follow Centre Walk in the garden, then turn right onto the bridge. W: OK. M: Take a left after the bridge. ⑦The Language Arts building is the first building on the right.

Now I have to decide whether to stay on the basketball team or go to work.
W: Look, I’ve arranged to work at the pet store on Mondays and Wednesdays.
I don’t have

(Text 8) M: I know that you don’t feel very well and you’re losing weight. Has school been very difficult lately? W: Yes. ⑩I just finished taking my midterms.

W: No. I’ve been studying so much that I haven’t had time. M: It sounds to me that you haven’t given your body a chance to get better. W: What should I do? M: First, you must sleep more. Next, you have to eat better. Your body cannot work well if you don’t give it good food. Try to eat more vegetables and fruits. And limit your coffee to two cups a day.

My name is Alice Sommers. I have come to interview you for our school newspaper. M: Good morning. I suppose you would like my opinions on some social problems. W: Not exactly, sir. We’d like to find out how your normal day begins. M: Well, that’s easy. My alarm clock wakes me up at 6:15 a.m. Then I do a few exercises to get my head clear, take a shower and have my breakfast, which is always a piece of bread, a cup of coffee and the morning newspaper. I arrive at my office a little before 8:00 a.m. and begin by checking any messages. If possible I take a little rest about 2:00 p.m. to relax and then continue with my schedule until 6 or 7 p.m. I usually get home around 7:30 p.m., spend some time with my family, and go to bed about 11:00 p.m. You know I have two kids that I don’t see very much except on weekends. Fortunately, we spend a lot of time together on weekends, unless
there’s some emergency that I have to attend to. W: Thank you very much. M: It’s been a pleasure. (Text 10) M: Good morning, everyone. It’s good to see you all here today. I believe some of you once dreamed of becoming famous. I was one of you. Now I’d like to share my story with you. As a young actor, I first arrived in Los Angeles in 1984. I saw the shining lights of the city as the plane landed and I felt excited as the first step that would lead me to fortune got under way. I imagined that the development of my dream would move smoothly and soon, I would be one of the best known faces on cinema screen throughout the world. I was confident in my first performance in 1986. I knew the lead role was perfect for me. I was anxious to become well-known. But when they offered me a small role, I saw that my plans for quick success had been ruined. Over the years I tried out for other roles, but I never got a good part. Sometimes I thought of giving up. Five years later, I found myself working in the offices of a movie company. And eventually I ended up as a manager of this company after years of hard work. You know, it isn’t easy doing this job. There are a lot of things you need to consider, always be ready to take responsibility if things go wrong. And you need to deal with actors who think they are the master of the world — boy, you can’t imagine what a pain that is!
