四、阅读理解（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分）
请认真阅读下列短文，从短文后各题所给的 A 、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项， 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A I am an English teacher, with over 15 years ’ experience of teaching in London. I started the DailyStep audio email lesson service because I noticed that when I started their English course, my students ’ speaking and listening skills were much weaker than their reading and writing skills. In my view, this is because education in school does not focus enough on communication skills. DailyStep is designed to remedy this situation by offering more practice in speaking, listening and vocabulary. I am crazy about the English language and it is a real pleasure for me to see the development of my students ’ language skills. I majored in (以….为专业)law at university and then worked for three years as a researcher and journalist for Sky television and BBC magazines. I decided to change to English teaching because of my love of the English language and my wish to move into more satisfying work. Then I qualified (取得资格)as an English teacher in 1992. My first teaching job was at a language school in Covent Garden, London, where I taught examination classes and Business English . After two years, I moved to the Nippon Club where I taught General English and Business English courses for 9 years. I also developed a unique course called British Society & Culture, covering all areas of British life, such as politics, law, education & music. At the same time, taught Business ， Financial& Law English in the financial centre of London. My students included staff （工作人员）from banks and law firms. As well as running the DailyStep website, I also provide in-company English speech training for companies in London. If you have an important speech coming up and would like some information about how I can help you, please email me at email@example.com. 66.DailyStep audio email lesson service __________ A. is an in-company service B. teaches English communication skills C. is designed for working people D. provides English training for free 67.What does the underlined word “remedy” in Paragraph mean? A. report B. judge C. improve D. practise 68. What’s the CORRECT time order of the following events? a. The author qualified as an English teacher b.The author taught at a language school in Covent Garden c.The author worked as a journalist for Sky television d.The author taught in the Noppon Club. A. cabd B. cadb C. cbad D. cdab 69. We can learn from the passage that_______. A. the author enjoys teaching English B. all of the author’s students are adults
C. the author majored in English at university D. the author knows little about how to make a speech B The whole morning we just checked our own things. We were looking for items to give away. We thought of blankets, food and clothing. Our aim was not to find things we no longer wanted, but things we use every day and would be useful to others. We made up boxes with the things and added some small toys. Inside the boxes a simple letter was placed, reading: “Please take these items and know that your life is important. Times are difficult but they will pass. We share what we have, believing it will matter. Use the blanket to stay warm. Be safe and know that the human spirit can overcome anything. Don’t hold your head down. Someday please do the same when you can. How you do it and when, your heart will tell you. This kind act was not because the phone rang or for any reason. It was simply because it was the right time to do. We have often seen homeless people at the park where we left the belongings. The city would say that it isn ’t a problem but I see the lives walking to and from it. I noticed that my wife had put her favorite green coat into one of the boxes. I asked if she was sure about it and she simply replied that it had a hood (风帽). She liked the coat but knew the hood could shelter (遮挡)someone from the rain. We don’t know where these gifts of compassion （同情） will go. We never go back and see what happens. It’s unimportant. The right things will find the right people and that is all that counts. On the way my wife started to cry. When I asked why, she said because some things felt so right. 70. What can we learn from the first paragraph about the couple？ A. They had deep feelings of their work B. They often threw the useless daily items away C. They liked helping others by sharing their things D. They often gave away the daily items they didn’t use 71.The couple placed the letter inside the box mainly to_______________. A. help the poor go through the difficulties B. let the poor know who gave away the things C. tell the poor how to use the items correctly D. tell the poor to pass on the spirit to others 72.The couple liked this kind act because _______. A. they thought it was the right thing to do B. they had a good habit of saving things C. they often received telephone calls for help D. they hated being troubled by homeless people 73.What’s the best title for this passage? A. Boxes filled with compassion B. Good behavior leading to happiness C. The most important thing in our life D. Happiness coming from sharing things C Psychology（心理学）tells us that many people hate to take risks. But it is good for us to take risks, especially ( 尤 其)when the risk is to achieve a desired result. In that way, we become stronger and braver. Our human nature should be to take risks, but some people just sit and wish they didn’t have the fear（恐惧）to move on. This is because of one or two failures in their lives. Please step out and don’t let the past hold you back from living life to the fullest. Move forward and move on! In studying the psychology of taking risks, we find that human nature provides( 提供) us with the desire (渴望)to
experiment and take chances. Risk taking is a great benefit（好处）that allowed our ancestors(祖先) to become stronger and stronger day by day. By taking risks they fought off enemies and discovered new territories （领土）. This attitude has become a part of our modern culture. Riding a roller coaster is a common risk taking activity that even the average person seems to enjoy although they have the understanding that it is dangerous. This psychological and biological ( 生物学上的) connection （联系）creates an interesting connection between what is unsafe and what humans enjoy. Getting in a car each day is a risk. Getting out of bed is a risk. There is such thing as perfect safety. We need to take risks so that we can complete (finish) many things. Astronauts take risks when they get inside a rocket; however, the things they achieve are great. Businessmen take a risk when they buy parts of a company. However, without doing that, they could not make more money. We need to take risks so that we can gain something. It is impossible to move forward in life, earn money, enjoy a relationship, play a sport, or do anything else without taking a risk. It is all part of the game. It’s one of the most important parts of life. 74.Some people don’t want to take risks, mainly （主要）because ___________. A. they are too lazy to move on B. they feel pleased with the present life. C. they have experienced some failures before D. they show little interest in the strange world outside 75. What does the underlined part “This attitude” in Paragraph 4 mean? A. Taking risks B. Fighting off enemies C. Discovering new territories D. Becoming stronger and stronger 76. What can we infer from the passage? A. Daily life is full of risks B. The safest place has the greatest risk C. People should take risks when they are young D. We can always achieve our goals by taking risks 77. What would be the title for the passage? A. Taking risks is easier said than done B. On risks taken by ancestors C. Live our life to the fullest(充分地) D. No risk, no gain. D Malnutrition (营养失调)remains a serious problem for India. But a new study shows that India ’s leading causes of death now also include diseases related to obesity （肥胖）such as heart disease. India’s National Family Health Survey shows that more than twenty percent of Indians living in cities are overweight or obese. And in the northwestern state of Punjab, that is true for almost forty percent of women. Aradhna Tripathi is a business professional in New Delhi. She said, “ Eating is the most important thing in any Indian household and how you show your love and gratitude(感激) for a person is through the kind of food you serve him. And the kind of lifestyle we are leading is one of the reasons why we have the number of obese people increasing every day. But Aradhna Tripathi says she has decided to lose weight. Her mother and grandmother are also diabetic( 患糖尿病 的). In fact, the International Diabetes Federation says India is now the diabetes capital of the world. Researchers say Indians store more body fat per kilogram than Europeans. That means obese Indians are even more at the risk of diabetes
than other people. Doctor Anoop Misra at Fortis Hospital in New Delhi says the risk of diabetes is crossing social and economic lines. Five years ago, he says, obesity and diabetes were limited to India’s richest people, but now things have changed. But Doctor Misra is hopeful that the spread (蔓延，传播)of obesity can be slowed. And he says it must start in schools by giving all Indian children the same instruction on physical activity and diet. The World Health Organization says China is also moving up in obesity rates. The estimate ( 估计) has reached about five percent countryside and as high as twenty percent in some cities. 78.What is this passage mainly about? A. Obesity has become a big killer in India. B. Heart disease is troubling people in India. C. People in India live a very unhealthy life. D.Malnutrition remains a serious problem in India. 79. According to Aradhna Tripathi , one of the causes of the obesity problems is_________. A. .the development of economy B. the change of Indians ’ lifestyle C. Indians ’ attitude （态度）towards eating D. Indians ’ attitude towards obesity. 80. What can we infer from the underlined sentence in Paragraph 5? A. Most wealthy people in India are overweight. B. Five years ago, few people in India were overweight C. Few poor people are diabetic for economic reasons. D. Now even the poor in India suffer from obesity.
Many animal lovers would like to do more to help animals, but aren ’t sure where to start or feel like they just don ’t have the time. The good news is that there are many simple things you can do to help protect animals. Think twice before you decide The decisions you make when it comes to eating meat or other animal products can go a long way toward stopping the killing of animals. Consider eating a vegetarian （素食的） diet. If you aren’t ready to make this change, there are still things you can do. Do not buy animal products from companies known to use practices that go against the law such as using drugs to increase milk production in cows. Help get the word out Getting the word out about the problems faced by animals can be as easy as putting up a notice on your car. Also, talk to your friends and family members about important issues that are related to animals. Give some simple advice to a friend with a new pet about the serious pet over-population problem we’re facing. Turn to some books on the subject if you are not so clear about the advice you give your friend. Write a letter We’ve all heard the saying, “ The pen is more powerful than the sword ”. Put this idea to the protection of animals. If a company has practices or rules that are harmful to animals, write them a letter to let them know you are angry about them, and that you won’t buy their products until they make some changes. Write letters to state and local legislators （立法者） to let them know how important it is that they support legislation that protects animals. Make them know that their actions will have a great effect on your vote. Be more loving
If you’re considering adding a dog or a cat to your family, think about getting one from a homeless-animal house rather than buying a pet. There are many wonderful animals just waiting for a home. By taking back an animal from there, you will be helping in the fight against pet over-population, as well as giving your money to those who are responsible for taking care of pitiful animals. Let your actions be an example to others It may sound simple ,but one of the best ways to help animals is to let your actions speak to the world. You should do the following things first by yourself: Treat all living creatures with respect. Care about your pets and look after them well. Avoid (避免)entertainment places that use animals to perform. Support legislation （立法）that protects animals. All of these things set an example for others to follow. Title: Ways of ___81____ animals
