II.阅读（共两节，满分 50 分）
第一节 阅读理解 （共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A In America, where labour costs are so high, “do-it-yourself” is a way of life. Many people repair their
own cars, build their own houses. Soon they may also be writing their own books. In Hollywood there is a company that publishes children’s books with the aid of computers. Although other companies also publish that way, this particular company is very unusual. It “personalizes” the books by having the computer make the reader the leading character in the story. Here is how they do it. Let us say that your child is named Jenny. She lives on Oak Drive in St Louis, has a dog named Spot, a cat named Tabby, and three playmates whose names are Betsy, Sandy, and Jody. The computer uses information to fill out a story that has already been prepared and illustrated. The story is then printed with standard equipment as a hardcover book. A child who receives such a book might say, “This book is about me”; the company therefore calls itself the “Me-book Publishing Company”. Children like the me-books very much because they like to see in print their own names and the names of their friends and their pets. But more importantly, “personalization” has been found to be an important tool in developing enthusiasm for reading. Me-books are thus helping a child to learn how to read, by appealing to that natural desire to see his own name in print. 26.Why do the children like the “me-books”? A. Because the main characters are Jenny, her dog, her cat and her three playmates. B. Because the children will see familiar names in the books. C. Because in the U.S.A. “do it yourself” is a way of life. D. Because the company that publishes the books is unusual. 27.The books will develop the children’s interest in reading by _______. A. meeting natural desire of children’s B. the interesting stories in them C. the computers’ well using D. fairies 28.We can conclude from the text ________. A. if you want to be well-known, you may turn to the company publishing the books B. that the company will have to deal with a lot of information C. that the other companies will use the same method D. that Americans like “do it yourself” 29.What does the underlined word “personalize” in Paragraph1 mean? A. realize B. specialize C. individualise(赋予个性) D. civilize
30.What is the purpose of the passage? A. To introduce Me-book Publishing Company. B. To tell us about a way of life. C. To encourage people to “do-it-yourself”. D. To tell us something about Me-books. B As the pace of life continues to increase, we are fast losing the art of relaxation. Once you are in the
habit of rushing through life, being on the go from morning till night, it is hard to slow down. But relaxation is essential for a healthy mind and body. Stress is a natural part of everyday life and there is no way to avoid it. In fact, it is not the bad thing it is often supposed to be. A certain amount of stress is vital to provide motivation and give purpose to life. It is only when the stress gets out of control that it can lead to poor performance and ill health. The amount of stress a person can withstand (经得起) depends very much on the individual. Some people are not afraid of stress, and such characters are obviously prime material for managerial responsibilities. Others lose heart at the first sight of unusual difficulties. When exposed to stress, in whatever form, we react both chemically and physically. In fact we make a choice between “fight” or “flight” and in more primitive days the choice made the difference between life or death. The crises we meet today are unlikely to be so extreme, but however little the stress, it involves the same response. It is when such a reaction lasts long, through continued exposure to stress, that health becomes endangered. Such serious conditions as high blood pressure and heart disease have established links with stress. Since we cannot remove stress from our lives (it would be unwise to do so even if we could), we need to find ways to deal with it. 31.People are finding less and less time for relaxing themselves because_____. A. they are becoming busier with their work B. they do not believe that relaxation is important for health C. they are traveling fast all the time D. they do not know how to enjoy themselves 32.According to the writer, the most important character for a good manager is his ________. A. having control over performance C. high sense of responsibility 33.Which of the following statements is true? A. We can find some ways to avoid stress. B. Different people can withstand different amounts of stress. C. It is easy to change the habit of keeping oneself busy with work. D. Stress is always harmful to people. 34.In Paragraph 3, “such a reaction” refers back to_______. A. making a choice between ‘flight’ or ‘fight’ B. responding to crises quickly C. reaction to stress both chemically and physically D. losing heart at the sight of difficulties 35.In the last sentence of the passage, “do so” refers to ______. A. expose ourselves to stress B. find ways to deal with stress C. established links between diseases and stress B. knowing the art of relaxation D. not fearing stress
D. remove stress from our lives C Steve Jobs, co-founder and former chief executive of US technology giant Apple, has died at the age of 56. Mr Jobs had announced he was suffering from pancreatic cancer in 2004. Apple said he had been “the source of countless innovations（创新）that enrich and improve all of our lives” and had made the world “ immeasurably better ”. Tributes(赞美之辞) have been made by technology company bosses and world leaders, with US President Barack Obama saying the world had “lost a visionary（有远见卓识的人)”. “Steve was among the greatest of American innovators —— brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it,” said Mr Obama. A statement from Mr Jobs’ family said they were with him when he died peacefully on Wednesday. “In his public life, Steve was known as a visionary; in his private life, he cherished his family,” they said, requesting privacy and thanking those who had “shared their wishes and prayers” during his final year. Apple said the company had “lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being ”. Tim Cook, who was made Apple’s CEO after Mr Jobs stood down in August, said his predecessor had left behind “a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple”. Flags are being flown at half mast outside the Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California, while fans of the company have left tributes outside Apple shops around the world. “What he's done for us as a culture, it resonates in every person,” said Cory Moll, an Apple employee in San Francisco. “Even if they never use an Apple product, the impact they have had is so far-reaching.” At the company ’s Shanghai shop, customer Jin Yi said Mr Jobs had created gadgets which had “changed people's perceptions of machines”. The heads of other leading technology companies have also paid tribute, including Microsoft boss Bill Gates, who said Mr Jobs’s “deep impact” on the world of technology would “be felt for many generations to come”. “For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it ’s been a great honour. I will miss Steve immensely.” Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg thanks Mr Jobs for “showing that what you build can change the world” while Sony Corp president and CEO Howard Stringer said: “ The digital age has lost its leading light.” South Korea's Samsung, which is involved in an ongoing legal battle with Apple over patents, praised Mr Jobs for his “numerous revolutionary changes to the information technology industry ”. 36.Hearing of Steve Jobs’ death, the heads of other leading technology companies have paid tribute and _______. A. shared the prayer with his family B. spoken highly of him C. fought a battle with Apple D. suffered from the sad news 37. It can be concluded according to the passage that Steve Jobs was _____. A. an honest colleague
B. a good company founder C. a great innovator D. an amazing revolutionary 38. US President Barack Obama made a speech at Steve Jobs’ death because _____. A. Jobs had made great contributions to the IT industry B. they had co-founded the first-class company C. they had been friends for years D. Jobs had changed Obama’s political life 39. Who became Apple’s CEO after Mr Jobs resigned in August? A. Cory Moll B. Howard Stringer C. Bill Gates D. Tim Cook 40. Where is the Apple headquarters? A. California, America B. Paris, France C. Sydney, Australia D. London, England D XI’AN—China has introduced various emergency responses and long?term measures against air pollution in the central and eastern regions. The air quality index (AQI) for Xi’an reached 500 on Wednesday afternoon, at the top of the AQI scale, according to the national air quality monitoring website. Xi’an weather forecasters predict the smog (雾霾) will continue for the next week and air pollution may worsen. “I have to keep buying masks for my family,”said Liu, buying masks at a pharmacy (药店) near her home in downtown Xi’an.“This is the only thing we can do to protect ourselves.” On Wednesday, a city government emergency response plan was put into action, suspending all the construction and taking at least 50 percent of government vehicles off the road. Power plants must limit their output and reduce emissions. Nearly half the country, more than 100 cities in 20 provinces, has suffered from smog since last December. Many have taken action, including experimenting with artificial methods to reduce smog, limiting vehicle use and fining polluters. Assessments based on GDP alone were abandoned last month and more emphasis has been put on public well?being and the environment. Whether the move will be effective in forcing local governments consider environmental issues over economic growth remains to be seen. Environmental protection professionals are doubtful about the immediacy of the effects of these measures. Xiao Hang, an urban researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said it took London 50 years to lose the moniker (绰号) “foggy London town” and Los Angeles still struggles to control its photochemical
(光化学) smog.” “We can’t ignore environmental problems during the development process and China has a long way to go.” he said. 41.What would be the best title for the article? A. AQI for Xi’an reached 500. B. Smoggy Chinese cities to clear the air. C. Smog crisis tries the limits of people's patience. D. Dust masks become hot sellers. 42.The underlined word“suspending”in Paragraph 4 can be replaced by“________”. A. encouraging B. continuing C. stopping D. expanding 43.We can infer from the article that ________. A. assessments based on GDP alone were harmful to environmental protection B. environmental professionals believe the air quality will soon be improved with these C. China is the only country suffering from smog D. Xi’an was the most polluted city in China 44.What Xiao Hang said indicates ________. A. solving environmental problems requires great effort B. the development of China is more important C. London still has serious air pollution after 50 years of effort D. it’s normal for China to have environmental problems 45.Where can this article be found? A. A magazine C. A newspaper B. A composition D. A textbook measures
第二节 信息匹配（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下列应用文及相关信息，并按照要求匹配信息, 请在答题卡上将对应题号的相应选项字母涂 黑。 以下是学习英语的方法： A．Practise speaking as often as you can—even speaking to yourself is good practice. Try recording yourself whenever you can. B．It helps if you can learn with someone else. If you can persuade a friend or family member to study with you, it will make you keep working. Decide on the time to meet and set goals for the week. And test each other regularly. C．Practise improvising (即兴的) ways of getting your meaning across, even if you don’t know the exact words or phrases. Think of things you might want to say whenever you have time. An example is the use of tenses. Use facial expressions, hand movements, anything to get your meaning across. D．Guesswork is important in learning a new language. When listening to recorded material, you aren't expected to understand everything the first round. If you play the same piece several times, you will most probably understand something new each time. Learn to make maximum use of all the clues you can pick up.
E．A wide vocabulary is the key to successful language learning, but don't try to learn too much vocabulary at once. F．If you are the person on the bus, street or restaurant asking how you can improve your English, you are on the right track. The only way to improve your speaking is by speaking. Don't worry about a bad accent or forgetting words or not being understood. 以下是学习者在学习英语中所碰到的困难。请匹配这些困难与所对应的学习方法。 46．Margret Lillian’s pronunciation is poor. And she doesn’t know how to improve her pronunciation. She is very worried and doesn't know what to do. 47．Alice Fingelhamm has difficulty in understanding the meaning of the English text. So she looks up the new words in the dictionary in order to understand everything. However, she made little progress in English. 48．Although Peter Florian wants to communicate with people on the bus when he is on the way home, he is afraid of being laughed at because of his poor accent. 49．Lynne Nagata can’t express herself clearly in English because she sometimes forgets some key words and doesn't know the tenses exactly. 50．Jack Anderson’s vocabulary is very small. He is very anxious to improve his English. Therefore, he wants to enlarge his vocabulary in a short time and tries his best to memorize new words as many as possible at a time.

China won three games in the 2015 Asian Cup, which is a big success and a new record for Chinese football. After years of frustration, we were disappointed with the national team because of the bad performance and failures in Asian Cups from 2007 and 2011 and the three World Cups since 2002,which made the national team something of a laughingstock (笑柄) among fans. So the Chinese team had already given many Chinese football fans a pleasant surprise and people enjoyed watching the team for the first time. After bowing out of (退出)the Asian Cup, now the Chinese national side should reflect on“Where can Chinese football go from here? ”Football may be China’s most popular sport, but the country lags behind South Korea and Japan on the field, despite having a much larger population. The government has approved the country's “football reform plan”, and says “Grasp the development opportunity as babies.” just like President Xi Jinping ’s words “China should start training babies if the country is to be successful at football.” Thus, it will expand its “China School Football Programme”(校园足 球方案). Undoubtedly, more football schools, more football pitches(足球场), experienced coaches, and more funding are needed to make the change. To develop footballing infrastructure（基础设施), coaching and training are important as well. [写作内容] 1.以约 30 个词概括上文的主要内容。

In order that we can make the best of learning materials, the Students' Union of our school is arranging an activity, which will be held on the first floor of the school library from June 10 to 20. We students of Senior Three are called on to give away our used books, newspapers or magazines to the students in the lower grades. The idea, which is intended for promoting friendship and encouraging economy, is highly praised and supported by the teachers and students alike. As a student, I am strongly for the activity because
it is very meaningful and helpful. I hope that this kind of activity will continue in the future. Yours sincerely， Li Hua 第二节 读写任务 （共 1 小题，满分 25 分） It’s a new record and a surprise that China won three games in the the 2015 Asian Cup, after which, the government reflected on “Where does Chinese football go from here?” and approved the country's “football reform plan’’.(37words) I’m in favor of the China School Football Programme for the following reasons. For one thing, it provides us students with a good chance to learn how to play football, which is also beneficial to building up our body just like other kinds of sports. For another, it ’s important for the development of Chinese football because it will not only make it popular with more and more people but also cultivate more excellent football players who may even become football stars. From my point of view, there are many difficulties in carrying out the program. First of all, not every school is big enough to provide a football pitch where students enjoy it. What ’s more, there’s a lack of football teachers because our PE teachers now are not good at football or don’t know how to play it. Last but not least, it needs a large sum of money. To overcome these difficulties, I’d like to give some suggestions. First of all, the government should invest a lot of money in building football pitches and developing footballing infrastructure. Besides, football teachers should be hired or PE teachers should be trained as quickly as possible.
