第一节 完形填空(共 15 小题;每小题 2 满分 30 分) Freshmen are always fearful when learning they are to live with a roommate of a different race assigned by the computer casually. They are full of 1 at the uncertainties. Now several studies have found that 2 a room with a man of another race is a mixture of hope and fear. It decreases 3 and forces students to make friends with those of different races, meanwhile causes more conflicts. An Ohio State University study found that black students living with a white roommate saw higher 4 success at college. Sam Boakye — the only black student on his freshman year floor — said “if you?re 5 by whites, you have something to prove like a good score in study.” However, researchers also observed 6 in this case. According to two recent studies, compared with two white roommates, roommates of different 7 may experience such big conflicts that one has to move out and live 8 . Grace Kao, a professor at Penn said she was not 9 by the findings. In her opinion, this may be the first time that some of these students have 10 with someone of a different race.” At Penn, students are not asked to mention race when applying for their 11 . In this way, students are thrown together 12 . “In the past two years, I?ve experienced roommate conflicts between interracial students,” said one Penn resident advisor (RA). To give a better picture, she 13 that some conflicts provided more multicultural acceptance, but some showed unpleasant differences. Besides, these conflicts have also occurred among roommates of the 14 race. Kao said it was 15 to conclude from any one of the above studies, saying scientists must study more students? background characteristics. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

第二节 语法填空(共 10 小题,每小题 1.5 分,满分 15 分) Now many singers and bands have little to do with good music. They know little about 16 good music means. What is the cause?

No Certainty, only Opportunity is important too, but not at such a high level.


Therefore, many young girls on TV choose to wear the most provocative (挑逗性的) clothes to catch attention, but when it comes to singing they are in 21 complete mess and one doesn?t need to have an ear 22 music to notice their lack of talent. However, the young generation should understand talent and a good voice matter more in their musical career. All the bands 23 have little to do with good music fail to be viewed as 24 (succeed) on stage. If a young man has a great voice and wants to become a singer, he should take some special courses in this area, because they will help 25 improve singing abilities. Ⅱ 阅读(共两节,满分 40 分)

In the late summer of 2004, days before I was to move to a city in China, to teach English for a year, I spoke to an acquaintance who had spent a few years in the country. “Holidays are hard,” he said. “But strangely, not so much Christmas. Christmas isn?t that bad. It?s Thanksgiving that?s hard.” At the time, surviving the holidays was the least of my worries. I was moving to a country where I didn?t speak the language, understand the culture, or know the history, in order to do a job that I had never done and didn?t know how to do. And not only that, I was going to a city that I hadn?t even heard of, and could find no information about online. Other than that, I was completely equipped. Within a couple of months, the euphoria of being in China had worn off, and I found myself settling into a routine. I taught two hour-long classes of 15 and 16-year-olds, and, because I assigned no homework and rarely gave out tests, spent the afternoons either reading or making a halfhearted attempt to learn Chinese. When Thanksgiving came around, I decided it?d be easiest if I just ignored it. In China, this isn?t difficult; unlike Christmas, which many Chinese people cerebrate with decorations, music, and festivities, Thanksgiving slips past unnoticed — it?s just another Thursday. And so it was. As I sat on my sofa, however, watching another film from the James Bond box set I bought for $12 at a local shop, I felt a sense of shame. What was I doing? It was Thanksgiving, damn it. I needed to have a proper Thanksgiving dinner. There was only one problem. As in most small Chinese cities, there?s no turkey, or cranberry sauce, or stuffing, yams, pumpkin pie, or anything else. In fact, in the entire city of 700,000 people, there was exactly one restaurant whose food even resembled, at a distance, Thanksgiving fare. Kentucky Fried Chicken. And so that?s where I headed. 26. Before beginning his teaching in a Chinese city, the writer _________. A. made few preparations B. little expected the hardships C. turned to one friend for information D. was full of curiosity rd 27. The underlined word “euphoria” in the 3 paragraph probably means ___________. A. pleasure B. worries C. satisfaction D. hope 28. From the passage we can know that the writer usually spent a day by __________. A. watching films from the James Bond box B. learning Chinese with passion in the afternoons C. giving two-hour lessons for teenagers D. occasionally marking the students? homework 29. KFC became the writer ?s final choice on Thanksgiving Day because ________. A. its food was a bit similar to Thanksgiving dish B. its atmosphere was suitable for foreigners in China C. Western holidays were less attractive to Chinese D. Turkey or related food was not available in China 30. The purpose of the passage is ________ A. to explain a foreigner?s dull work experience B. to describe a foreigner ?s lonely Thanksgiving Day C. to prove a foreigner?s wrong cultural concept D. to present some hard problems for a foreigner

No Certainty, only Opportunity B


Drunken driving — sometimes called America?s socially accepted form of murder — has become a national epidemic (流行病). Every hour of every day about three Americans on average are killed by drunken drivers, adding up to an incredible 250,000 over the past ten years. A drunken driver is usually referred to as one with 0.10-blood alcohol content or roughly three beer glasses of wine or shots of whisky drunk within two hours. Heavy drinking used to be an acceptable part of the American manly image and judges were lenient in most courts, but the drunken killing has recently caused so many well-publicized tragedies, especially concerning young children, that public opinion is no longer so tolerant. Twenty states have raised the legal drinking age to 21, reversing a trend (逆转潮流) in the 1960s to reduce it to 18. After New Jersey lowered it to 18, the number of people killed by 18-20-year-old drivers more than doubled, so the state recently upped it back to 21. Reformers, however, fear raising the drinking age will have little effect unless accompanied by educational programs to help young people to develop “responsible attitudes” about drinking and teach them to resist peer pressure to drink. Though new laws have led to increased arrests and tests in many areas already, to a marked drop in accidents, some states are also punishing bars for serving customers too many drinks. A bar in Massachusetts was fined for serving six or more double brandies to a customer who was “obviously drunk” and later drove off the road, killing a nine-year-old boy. As the accidents continue to occur daily in every state, some Americans are even beginning to speak well of the 13 years national ban of alcohol that began in 1919, which President Hoover called the “noble experiment”. They forgot that legal prohibition didn?t stop drinking, but encouraged political corruption (腐败) and organized crime. As with the booming drug trade generally, there is no easy solution. 31. What can be inferred from the fact of the traffic accidents in New Jersey? A. Young drivers were usually bad. B. Drivers should not be allowed to drink. C. Some drivers didn?t surprise the legal drinking age. D. The legal drinking age should be raised. 32. The underlined word “lenient” in the first paragraph means . A. serious B. cruel C. merciful D. determined 33. Which of the following statements best shows the writer?s opinion of drunken driving? A. It is difficult to solve this problem. B. It may lead to organized crime. C. The new laws can stop heavy drinking D. There should be no bars to serve drinks. 34. In America, the number of people killed by drunken drivers on average is _________. A. 3 per day B. 250,000 over the last 10 years C. 72 each day D. less than 500 each week 35. Drunken driving has become a major national problem because _________. A. drinking is America?s socially accepted habit B. most Americans drink quite a lot C. not many people realized the severe subsequences caused by heavy drinking D. publicity did not pay much attention to road accidents C California has a new program called the Digital Textbook Initiative. “Starting this fall with high school math and science, we will be the first state in the nation to provide schools with a state-approved list of digital textbooks.” That was Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in June, talking about his effort to get schools to use materials available free online. He listed reasons why he thinks digital textbooks make sense. California approves traditional textbooks in six-year cycles. Digital ones can offer the latest information. They lighten the load of school bags. They save paper and trees, and make learning more fun and interactive. And above all, he said, they help schools with their finances. The state has had to make severe cuts in school spending because of deep financial problems. More than six million students attend California public schools. 第3页 共8页

No Certainty, only Opportunity


Earlier this year, California invited content developers to offer digital math and science materials for high schools. These had to meet at least 90% of the state?s learning requirements. Specially trained teachers examined 16 textbooks and approved ten of them. Six of the ten were published by the CK 12 Foundation, a nonprofit group that had been developing digital science and math books for about two years. The foundation paid teachers and other education professionals to write and edit them. The money came from a group financed by the Khosla Family. California cannot require schools to use the digital textbooks. Individual school districts will have to decide for themselves. Susan Martimo, a California Department of Education official, says she does not expect widespread use right away. Her best guess is that some schools with a lot of technology will be the first to use them, but only in addition to their traditional books. School administrators point out that the texts may be free online, but students need a way to access them. Not everyone has a computer or electronic reader. Schools could print out copies, but that would not help the environment. Also, there is the cost to train teachers to use digital textbooks effectively. 36. The Digital Textbook Initiative ________. A. will probably take effect in six years B. covers all the high school subjects C. has been approved by all states D. is advocated by California state governor 37. Digital textbooks are most meaningful in that they are to ________. A. help save money B. benefit the environment C. provide interesting materials D. reduce students? heavy burden 38. Which of the following is TRUE of the CK 12 Foundation? A. It publishes all the books for students free of charge B. It provides money to write and edit all the textbooks in the USA C. It is organized and supported by Khosla Family D. It offers digital math and science materials for high schools 39. According to Susan Martimo, digital textbooks will ________. A. come into fashion from now on B. soon replace traditional ones C. first be adopted by well-equipped schools D. surely be approved by school districts 40. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that ________. A. schools are reluctant to print out copies B. the program is not easy to carry out C. students have no access to the computers D. teachers fail to use the textbooks effectively D The more women and minorities make their way into the ranks of management, the more they seem to want to talk about things formerly judged to be best left unsaid. The newcomers also tend to see office matters with a fresh eye, in the process sometimes forming critical analyses of the factors that influence everyone?s experience in the organization. Consider the new views of Harvey Coleman of Atlanta on the subject of how people get promoted. Coleman is black. He spent 11 years with IBM, half of them working in management development, and now serves as a consultant in some big companies like AT&T and Coca-Cola. Coleman says that based on what he?s seen at big companies, he considers the different roles of the following elements in the long-term success: performance counts a mere 10%, image, 30%; and exposure, a full 60%. Coleman concludes that excellent job performance is so common these days that while doing your work well may increase your pay, it won?t ensure you the big promotion. He finds that advancement more often depends on how many people know you and your work, and what a high position these people hold. Ridiculous beliefs? But they are not ridiculous to many people, especially many women and members of minority races who, like Coleman, feel that they have a better picture of the reality. “Women and blacks in organizations work under false beliefs,” says Kaleel Jamison, a New York-based management consultant who helps corporations deal with these issues. “They think that if you work hard, you?ll get ahead — that someone in authority will reach down and give you a promotion.” She adds, “Most women and blacks are so frightened that 第4页 共8页

people will think they?ve got ahead because of their sex or color that they try to make themselves less visible.” Her advice to those folks: learn the ways that white males have traditionally used to find their way to stand out among the people. 41. The best title for this passage would be __________. A. Role of Women and Minorities in Management B. The Importance of Being Visible C. Job Performance and Advancement D. Sex and Career Success 42. According to the passage, the underlined sentence “things formerly judged to be best left unsaid” in the first paragraph probably refers to __________. A. criticisms that cause everyone?s experience B. the tendencies that help the newcomers to see office matters with a fresh eye C. the opinions which are in conflict with the established beliefs D. the ideas which usually come up with new ways of management in the organization 43. We can learn from the passage that the most important factor to achieve success in one?s career is to _______. A. let your bosses know how good you are B. establish a favorable image to the people around you C. work as a consultant to your bosses D. well perform your tasks given by your bosses 44. The reason why women and blacks make themselves less visible is that they ________. A. know that someone in authority will reach down and give them a promotion B. want to give people the impression that they work under false beliefs C. believe they can get promoted by their sex or color D. don?t want people to think that their promotions were due to sex or color 45.

讨论背景:有些学生高中毕业后,考入大学继续学习,但有些学生却选择离开学校到社会就业。 支持者认为: 大学并非适合每个学生; 只要努力,在哪都能实现梦想; 社会需要各种各样的人才。 【写作要求】 1. 只能用 5 句话表达全部写作内容; 2. 必须包括所有写作内容。 【评分标准】 句子结构准确,信息内容完整,篇章结构连贯。 第二节 读写任务(共 1 小题,满分 25 分) 阅读下面的短文,然后按照要求写一篇 150 词左右的英语短文。 Nowadays, a new way of shopping is attracting increasing customers: online group buying, also known as collective buying, which offers products and services at reduced prices on the condition that a minimum number of buyers would make the purchase. Origins of group buying can be traced to China where group buying or team buying was executed to get discount prices when a large group of people were willing to buy the same item. China group buying business hit 1.74 billion dollars in 2011, up 55% from the same period in 2010, according to a report. The report also shows that 2011 was the year that the Chinese group-buying market got more and more concentrated with more and more Chinese, most of whom are white collars, teenagers and college students enjoying the benefits of group buying, and among most of favorable buying categories are restaurant, movie and hotel booking for traveling. Through grouping buying, on one hand, customers get a lower price than normal. On the other hand, businessmen also cut down expense on marketing. That is the reason why group buying websites spring up like mushrooms in recent years. What is the most attractive in group buying must be the unbelieving discount. Facing the discount, customers always couldn?t resist the impulse to buy the product, even though they don?t need them. 【写作内容】 1. 以约 30 个词概括上文的主要内容。 2. 以约 120 个词写一篇关于“团购”的短文,内容包括: (1) 你对团购的看法并陈述理由; (2) 谈谈你自己或他人的一次团购经历; (3) 请你给团购者提一些有用的建议。 【写作要求】 1.作文中可使用自己的亲身经历或虚构的故事,也可以参照阅读材料的内容,但不得直接引用原文 中的句子; 2.作文中不能出现真实姓名和学校名称。 【评分标准】 概括准确,语言规范,内容合适,语篇连贯。 反对者认为: 在大学他们能够学到更多的知识, 将来能够获 得更多、更好的机会; 高中生年龄太小,工作为时太早。

Supporters hold the view that university is not suitable for every student. With efforts, people can realize their dreams wherever they are and society needs people with different talents. However, some people defend that university enables students to obtain further knowledge, and provides them with better chances in the future. They also argue that it is yet too early for high school students to go into work. 第二节:读写任务 Possible version: The passage mainly introduces the origins of group buying and its benefits, which develops rapidly and becomes more and more popular in China, due to the great discount given to customers. From my point of view, the advantages of group buying are obvious. For one thing, manufacturers can sell goods on a large scale and reduce marketing expense. For another, by cooperating with each other we shoppers can buy whatever we want without going out and get the most satisfactory goods at the lowest price. Last week, I surfed a well-known group buying website for two film tickets. With only 30 yuan, I got the tickets as well as two bottles of green tea which saved me so much. It was a very nice experience. As for suggestions for group buying, firstly, you should carefully read the advertisements and the comments from other customers. Secondly, buy with a clear purpose no matter how cheap it is. Thirdly, it is better to shop on famous and reliable websites to avoid being cheated by some cheating websites.` 第8页 共8页 36—40 DADCB 41—45 BCADC 17. have seen 18. appearance 19. as (so) 23. that 24. successful 25. him 20. to show 21. a
