Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

But my country husband Tom helped change my opinion of the country. When Tom was young, he would play around a wooden house deserted in the 1880s not far from his home. He spent so many days there that it became very special to him. Later he found that the house was used as a historical museum for school students on field trips. As Tom grew older, he watched the house age. After his retirement, he heard it was going to be destroyed. He paid a visit to the owner and offered to buy the place in order to save it. The owner agreed, but Tom had to have it moved within a month. For three straight weeks, he took the building down and moved every piece of it to our
farm. He insisted on doing everything the old-fashioned way to keep t his building as original as possible. He did make a few small changes to the house’s design, such as adding a beautiful fieldstone fireplace. Even those stones had a history with---some were the same ones he had thrown out of his father’s field as a boy. With the help of his family and friends, Tom restored (修复) this house beautifully. Neighbors stop by to see his progress and admire his skills not only has he learned a great deal about construction, he has also built some friendships in the process. 39. From Paragraph 2 we learn that______. A. Tom’s family was the owner of the old wooden house B. Tom once went to the old wooden house for field trips C. Tom was concerned about the changes of the wooden house D. Tom used to live in the old wooden house in his childhood. 40. Tom restored the wooden house because _____.

In the process of restoring the house, Tom ____. A. did the job all by himself B. kept the house exactly the same C. learnt some construction skills D. threw some stones out of his farm 42. According to the author, Tom’s restoring work is _____. A. old-fashioned B. time-wasting C. admirable D. crazy. D As we discussed last week, there have been a lot of reports that boys are in trouble in American education. Some people say efforts to improve education for girls, especially in math and science, have resulted in a crisis for boys. That belief has led to what a new report calls a growth industry of experts advising how to make schools more “boy friendly”. Yet that report, released this week, suggests that the truth is far different from what people might think. It says American boys in most cases are doing better than ever. “But girls have just improved their performance on some measures even faster,” it says. As a result, girls have narrowed or closed differences with boys in some areas and moved farther ahead of them in others. The report does agree that some groups of boys are in trouble. It says this is true especially of blacks and those from poor families. But it says closing racial and economic differences would help them more than reducing diff erences between boys and girls. Another concern is the large number of boys with learning and emotional disabilities. Also, the report says policymakers now recognize the need to reform public high schools, which should help boys as well as girls. But the report questions what it calls “simplistic” proposals to fix problems for boys in American school. One example given is expanding single-sex schooling. Findings on the success of the idea have differed. The Education Sector report calls for more study into the differences between boys and girls and into the culture of schools. It says the research will help better understand why gains for boys are not rising as fast as for girls. But the report also advises the
public not to worry too much, and to be careful not to harm the gains that girls have made. 43. We can read this report most probably in a _______. A. magazine for boys B. well-known newspaper C. school announcement D. school advertisement 44. From Paragraph 1, we learn that in some people’s opinion ______. A. efforts for American girls cause boys’ trouble B. American education does no good to boys. C. American schools are more “girl friendly” D. American boys are not really in tro uble 45. We can infer from the report that ______. A. boys should be responsible for their crisis B. some groups of boys are actually in trouble C. policymakers disagree to reform public high schools D. it’s probably not good simply to expand single-sex schools. 46. The best title of the passage should be _____ A. A report on a Boy Crisis in America B. A New Study on American Education. C. Save American Boys in Trouble. D. Why Are Girls Far Better Than Boys? E The astronauts working on the International Space Station, the ISS, have started their zero-gravity preview of the World Cup match on Thursday, June 26, between the United States and Germany. NASA astronauts Steve Swanson and Reid Wiseman and European astronaut Alexander Gerst, called out from Germany, showed off their moves in a soccer exhibition aboard the orbiting lab recently. An American video released today shows th eir performing space bicycle kicks, headers and, as players tend to do here on the earth, celebrating happily after scoring goals. NASA’s humanoid (仿真) robot Robonaut 2, which is designed to help astronauts perform, even gets into the spirit, wavin g its arms this way and that. The weightless action tells a key World Cup game on Thursday in Brazil featuring the two teams currently at the top of the match’s so-called “group of Death”. The winner will win the group and move on to the single-elimination (淘汰) “knockout stage” of the World Cup, while the loser may go home, depending on what happens in Thursday’s game between Ghana and Portugal, the other two teams in the group. Two teams from the group will advance. If the U.S. and Germany tie, they both will move on to the next stage. Swanson, Wiseman and Gerst are obviously fond of the World Cup. The three space-flyers also played micro-gravity (微重力) soccer in another video that NASA posted on June 11, the day before the World Cup kicked off. “We want to wish all the teams and fans on the ground and in Brazil a great World Cup,” Gerst said in that video, “Have fun and have peaceful games. May the best win”. The three astronauts make up half of the space station’s current Expedition 40. The other three crew members are Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov, Oleg Artemyev and Maxim Suraev.
47. How many astronauts are working on the ISS? A. Three. B. Five. C. Six. D. Nine. 48. The “two teams” in Paragraph 4 refers to ______. A. Brazil and the USA B. Brazil and Germany C. Ghana and Portugal D. Germany and America 49. Which of the following expressions is mostly related to the soccer game? A. Kick off B. Move on C. Show off d. Make up 50. There has been a weightless world cup in the ISS because _____. A. astronauts love to play football in their ISS B. astronauts are concerned about the World Cup C. Astronauts are asked to play a weightless game D. astronauts are curious about a weightless match 第二节 对话理解(共 5 个小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) 根据对话内容，从对话后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项，并将答案写到答题卡相应的位置 上。选项中有两项多余选项。（共 5 个小题； 每小题 2 分， 满分 10 分） Brian: Hello, Brian speaking.

第 II 卷（非选择题，共 60 分） 注意事项：以下各题必须使用 0.5 毫米黑色签字笔，将答案书写在答题可规定的位置上。 第三部分 写作（共三节，满分 60 分） 第一节 阅读表达（共 5 个小题； 每小题 2 分， 满分 10 分）
阅读下面短文并回答问题， 然后将答案写到答题卡相应的位置上（请注意每题词数要求） How is it that siblings (兄弟姐妹) can turn out so differently? One answer is that in fact each sibling grows up in a different family. The first-born is, for a while, an only child, and therefore has completely different experience of the parents than those born later. The next child is, for a while, the youngest, until the situation is changed by a new arrival. The mother and father themselves are changing and growing up, too. One sibling might live in a stable and close family in the first few years; another might be raised in a family crisis, with a disappointed mother or an angry father. Sibling competition was identified as an important shaping force as early as in 1918. But more recently, researchers have found many ways in which brothers and sisters are a lasting force in each other’s lives. Dr. Annette Henderson says that first-born children pick up vocabulary more quickly than their siblings. The reason for this might be that the later children aren’t getting the same one-on-one time with parents. On the other hand, later-borns don’t enjoy that much talking time with parents, but instead they learn lessons from bigger brothers and sisters, obtaining entire phrases and getting an understanding of social concepts such as the difference between “I” and “me”. One way children seek more attention from parents is by making themselves different from their siblings. A 2003 research paper studied adolescents f rom 185 families over two years, finding that those who changed to make themselves different from their siblings were successful. 56. What makes siblings turn out differently? (No more than 4 words) 57. When does the situation of the second child change? (No more than 5 words) 58. Why do first-borns pick up vocabulary more quickly? (No more than 8 words) 59. In which way do later-borns mainly acquire language development? (N o more than 6 words) 60. Who are more likely to make themselves different from their siblings? (No more than 7 words) 第二节 短文改错（共 10 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 15 分。将答案写到答题卡相应的位置上） 下文中共有 10 处语言错误。 请在有错误的地方增加、删除或修改某个词。 增加： 在缺词处加一个漏字符号（），并在其下面写出该加的词。 删除： 把多余的词用斜线（）划掉。 修改： 在错的词下面划一横线，并在该词下面写出修改后的词。 注意：1. 每句不超过两个错误。 2. 每处错误及其修改均仅限一词。 3. 只允许修改 10 处，多者（从第 11 处起）不计分。 The other day, my friends and I talked to the rules that we have in school. At our school, we had to wear the school uniforms every day, or the problem is that all my classmates feel the uniforms are ugly. We think that young people should look like smart and you would like to wear our own clothes. Our teachers believe that if we do it, we will concentrate much on our clothes than our studies.
