the tip of our tongue. Did you ever stop to take consideration where the money that you carry around every day comes from? Making new money is a very unique job and no easy task. It has up to 65 steps When the money in circulation（流通）gets dirty and worn out, it is replaced with new money The old money is taken from banks and brought to places where it is destroyed Usually, the old money is burned. The burned money is replaced by new paper money. If old money is being replaced, then new money is printed in a place called a mint （造币厂） .Large sheets of paper are printed with many pictures of some currency （流通货币）.These large sheets are cut into individual bills. The individual bills are then put together in big stacks and then sent to banks. Sometimes the mint will make a new bill with a new picture （portraits of statesman and places of interest are favoured）or a new colour. It is not easy for the government to make a new bill. It takes a long time, and there are many steps to go through before a new bill can be sent to banks, first, people in the government decide that a new kind of bill is needed Then, they ask and artist to design the new bill. A different artist cuts the new picture into a soft piece of metal called a die. The dies are made and put onto large printing machines. Then, very special paper is used, which no one but the mint can have. Along with this special paper, the mint also prints currency using special colours.

B Public bookshelves are appearing across Germany on street corners, city squares and in suburban supermarkets. In these free-for-all libraries, people can grab whatever they want to read, and leave behind anything they want for others. There’s no need to register, no due date, and you can take or give as many as you want. “This project is aimed at everyone who likes to read. It is open for everybody.” Michael Aubermann, one of the organizers of the free book exchange said. The western city’s latest public shelf was put up next to Bayenturm. It is the fourth free shelf that Aubermann’s group, the Cologne Citizen’s Foundation, has placed outside. “We set up our other outdoor shelves last year and it’s been working really well,” said Aubermann. The public bookshelves, which are usually financed by donations and cared for by local volunteer groups, have appeared independently of each other in many cities, suburbs and villages. Each shelf holds around 200 books and it takes about six weeks for a complete turnover, with all the old titles replaced by new ones. D. The amount of new money needed. B. The processes of making a new
Even commercial book stores and online book sellers seem to support the idea of free book exchanges. “We see this project rather as a sales promotion than as competition,” said Elmar Muether. “If books are present everywhere, it helps our business, too.” So far, the Cologne book group has had few problems with damage or other problems. Aubermann said, “Propaganda(宣传) is the only kind of literature we do not allow here.” At another bookshelf in the Bayenthal neighborhood, the lower shelves are reserved for children’s literature only. “It is important that we make it easy for everyone to participate in this ‘reading culture on the street’----from old readers to kids to immigrants.” Aubermann said. While most of the shelves have so far been put up in upscale- neighborhoods, Aubermann and the 20 volunteers who help look after the project are planning to put up future shelves in poor neighborhoods, where residents often don't have as much access to literature. 4. Which of the following is TRUE about the public bookshelves? A. People have to return the books according to the required time. B. People can’t borrow books unless they donate books. C. People can borrow whatever they like after registering. D. People can take the books and leave their books at will. 5. According to Aubernmann, the public bookshelves________________.

“The first and best of victories is for a man to conquer himself; to be conquered by himself is, of all things, the most shameful,” says Plato. Self-control is at the root of all the advantages. Let a man give in to his impulses(冲动)and feelings, and from that moment he gives up his moral freedom. A single angry word has lost many a friends. When Socrates found in himself any temper or anger, he would check it by speaking low in order to control himself. If you are conscious of being angry, keep your mouth shut so that you can hold back rising anger. Many a person has dropped dead in great anger. Fits of anger bring fits of disease “Whoever the gods would destroy they first make mad.” “Keep cool,” says Webster, “anger is not argument.” “Be calm in arguing.” Says George Herbert, “for fierceness (狂怒)makes error a fault.” To be angry with a weak man is to prove that you are not strong yourself. “Anger,” says Pythagoras, “bring with folly(愚蠢) and ends with regret.” You must measure the strength of a man by the power of the feelings he conquers, not by the power of those which conquer him. Self-control is man’s last greatest victory. If a man lacks self-control he seems to lack everything. Without it he can have no patience, no power to govern himself; he can have no self-confidence, for he will always be controlled by his strongest feeling. If he lacks self-control, the very backbone and nerve of character are lacking also. 8. What’s the main idea of the passage? A. A man should keep cool. B. How to conquer oneself? D. The importance of
C. The relation between moral freedom and his feelings. self-control.
9. What’s the meaning of “Whoever the gods would destroy they first make mad”?
A. If you are mad, the gods will kill you. B. If you lose your temper first, gods will kill you first. C. If you can’t control yourself, you will be crazy. D. If the gods want to kill you, they will make you mad first. 10. Which of the following is NOT true, according to passage? A. The first and best of victories is for a man to conquer himself. B. You will make a small mistake serious if you don’t keep cool. C. You must measure a man’s strength by the power of the feelings which conquer him. D. Anger brings with folly and ends with regret. 11. Which of the following can’t help you avoid anger, according to the passage? A. Becalm in arguing. C. Keep your mouth shut. B. Try to make the other angry first. D. Check your temper or anger by speaking low. D For my grandmother’s 70 birthday, my family and I visited South Korea. While there, I was attentive to Korean high schools and students. I was surprised by how different Korea’s public high schools are from America’s. Korean high schools can be all-girls, all-boys or co-ed ( 男女同校的 ) unlike our standard co-ed high schools. There are three grades: “go 1” (10th), “go 2” (11th) and “go 3” (12th). ‘‘Go” is the first syllable of the word “go-deung -hakkyo", which, simply translated, is “high school”. In America, unless you want to go to a private school, you don't have to take an entrance exam. In Korea, however, students must take a test to get in because of the many choices of schools. Another difference I couldn't help but notice was the students’ appearance. With very few exceptions, all wear uniforms. A name tag (标牌) with the student's name, grade and homeroom number must also be worn. Girl’s skirts can’t be above the upper part of the knee, and it is forbidden to dye (染) your hair or wear accessories (装饰品) except small earrings. There are strict regulations for appearance to achieve neatness, and it seems the only freedom students have is with their choices of hair
style, socks and shoes. The final difference was the setup of the classes. There may be 40 students in a classroom, but the number can be less or even more, depending on the population of the town or city. Although there are many students per classroom, they are very close, which I think is a result of not changing classrooms for different subjects. There are no levels in the subjects and the teachers are the ones who switch classrooms. They just have ten-minute breaks between subjects. In each class, students are ranked by their grades. This causes strict competition, and Korean students do a lot of studying. To help them, all schools have extra study classes after school. One other fact that helped me appreciate living in America is that Koreans have school on Saturdays. Although it’s only a half day, I think I speak for most Americans when I say we could never imagine ourselves in school on a Saturday. Korea’s public high schools are clearly different from America’s. I had imagined them to be just like our schools, but now I have a clear picture of how different they are. 12. How many main differences are mentioned between Korea’s public high school and America’s? A. 4. 5. 13. It seems that the writer _______ . D. 6. 3. B. C.
A. prefers the high school life of America to the one of Korea B. is fond of Korean students' appearance C. is familiar with the education system of high schools in Korea D. feels it common to have lessons on weekends 14. What does the underlined word “setup” in paragraph 5 probably mean? A. Arrangement. Number. D. Outline. Size. B. C.
15. According to the rules, the students of Korea can _______ .
A. go to different high schools without exams B. wear any clothes except uniforms at school C. have different hair styles D. attend different classes as they like 第二节（共 5 小题；每小題分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选 项。 Maybe you’re feeling down because of financial. Maybe you’re feeling over-whelmed by(以??压倒) holiday task. Or maybe you’re just having an unpleasant day. If so, you can make yourself happier-right now. 1. Boost your energy Stand up and pace while you talk on the phone or, even better, take a ten-minute walk outside 15 . The activity and sunlight are good for your focus, your mood,
and the reservation of information.

Reach put to friends 18 having warm, close bonds with other people is the KEY to happiness, so take the time to stay in touch.

Clear some physical and mental space around yourself by sorting papers, pitching junk, cleaning a closet, answering a few emails, filing, or even just making your piles neater.

For example: never postpone any task that can be completed in less than one minute.
