第二节 完形填空（共 15 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） In America, drivers’ education is part of the regular high school curriculum.
Every student in his or her second year of high school is required to 36 a class in drivers’ education. However, unlike other 37 , it is not given during the 38 school year. Instead, it is a summer course. The course is divided up into two parts: class time for learning laws and 39 and driving time to practice driving. Class time is not unlike any other class. The students have a 40 from which they study the basic 41 they must know to pass the written driving test that is given to anyone wanting to get a driver’s 42 . Driving time is a chance for the students to get behind the steering wheel and practice start, steering, backing up, parking, switching lanes, turning corners, and all the other operations 43 to drive a car. Each student is required to drive a total of six 44 . The students are divided up into groups of four. The students and the instructor go out driving for two-hour blocks of time. Thus, each student gets half an hour driving time per outing. The instructor and “driver” sit in 45 seats and the other three students sit in the back.
Drivers’ ED cars are unlike other cars in which they have two sets of brakes, one
on driver side and one on the other side where the 46 sits. Thus, if the student
driver should run into 47 , the instructor can take over. The car also has another
48 feature. On the top of the car is a sign that 49 : STUDENT DRIVER. That lets
nearby drivers know that they should use extra caution because the student driver is
a beginning driver, not very experienced and intended to drive 50 .

38. A. basic
39. A. features
B. regulations C. operations

第三节 语法填空（共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） Once, in a lovely garden, lived the most beautiful butterfly in the world. She
was so pretty, and had won so many beauty competitions 1 she had become very proud. One day, the naughty cockroach(蟑螂) got fed up with her showing off, and decided 2 (teach) her a lesson.
She went to see the butterfly, and in front of everyone she told her that she wasn’t really that beautiful, and that the butterfly only won the competitions 3 the judges had been paid. In 4 (real), the cockroach was the most beautiful.

三、阅读理解（共 15 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） (A)
In the fall of 1985, I was a bright-eyed girl heading off to Howard University, aiming at a legal career and dreaming of sitting on a Supreme Court bench somewhere. Twenty-one years later I am still a bright-eyed dreamer and one with quite a different tale to tell.
My grandma, an amazing woman, graduated from college at the age of 65. She was the first in our family to reach that goal. But one year after I started college, she developed cancer. I made the choice to withdraw from college to care for her. It meant that school and my personal dream would have to wait.
Then I got married with another dream: building my family with a combination of adopted and biological children. In 1999, we adopted our first son. To lay eyes on him was fantastic – and very emotional. A year later came our second adopted boy. Then followed son No.3. In 2003, I gave birth to another boy.
You can imagine how fully occupied I became, raising four boys under the age of 8! Our home was a complete zoo – a joyous zoo. Not surprising, I never did make it back to college full-time. But I never gave up on the dream either. I had only one choice: to find a way. That meant taking as few as one class each semester.
The hardest part was feeling guilty about the time I spent away from the boys. They often wanted me to stay home with them. There certainly were times I wanted to quit, but I knew I should set an example for them to follow through the rest of their
In 2007, I graduated from the University of North Carolina. It took me over 21
years to get my college degree!
I am not special, just single-minded. It always struck me that when you’re looking
at a big challenge from the outside it looks huge, but when you’re in the midst of
it, it just seems normal. Everything you want won’t arrive in your life on one day.
It’s a process. Remember: little steps add up to big dreams.
51. Why did the author quit school in her second year of college?
A. She wanted to study by herself.
B. She fell in love and got married.
C. She suffered from a serious illness.
D. She decided to look after her grandma.
52. What can we learn about the author from Paragraphs 4 and 5?
A. She was busy yet happy with her family life.
B. She ignored her guilty feeling for her sons.
C. She wanted to remain a full-time housewife.
D. She was too confused to make a correct choice.
53. What does the author mostly want to tell us in the last paragraph?
A. Failure is the mother of success. B. Little by litter, one goes far.
C. Every coin has two sides.
D. Well begun, half done.
54. Which of the following can best describe the author?
A. Caring and determined.
B. Honest and responsible.
C. Ambitious and Sensitive
D. Innocent and single-minded
The rise of the Internet has been one of the most transformative developments in
human history, comparable in impact to the invention of the printing press and the
telegraph. Over two billion people worldwide now have access to vastly more information
than ever before, and can communicate with each other instantly, often using
Web-connected mobile devices they carry everywhere. But the Internet’s tremendous
impacts has only just begun.
“Mass adoption of the Internet is driving one of the most exciting social,
cultural, and political transformations in history, and unlike earlier periods of change, this time the effects are fully global,” Schmidt and Cohen write in their new book The New Digital Age.
Perhaps the most profound changes will come when the five billion people worldwide who currently lack Internet access get online. The authors do an excellent job of examining the implications of the Internet revolution for individuals, governments, and institutions like the news media. But if the book has one major shortcoming, it’s that authors don’t spend enough time applying a critical eye to the role of Internet businesses in these changes.
In their book, the authors provide the most authoritative volume to date that describes — and more importantly predicts — how the Internet will shape our lives in the coming decades. They paint a picture of a world in which individuals, companies, institutions, and governments must deal with two realities, one physical, and one virtual.
At the core of the book is the idea that “technology is neutral, but people aren’t.” By using this concept as a starting point, the authors aim to move beyond the now familiar optimist vs. pessimist point of view that has characterized many recent debates about whether the rise of the Internet will ultimately be good or bad for society. In an interview with TIME earlier this week, Cohen said although he and his co-author are optimistic about many aspects of the Internet, they’re also realistic about the risks and dangers that lie ahead when the next five billion people come online, particularly with respect to personal privacy and state supervision. 55. How do Schmidt and Cohen describe the effects of the Internet?
A.They are immeasurable. B.They are worldwide. C.They are unpredictable. D.They are profound. 56. In what respect is the book The New Digital Age considered inadequate? A.It fails to recognize the impact of the Internet technology. B.It fails to look into the social implications of the Internet. C.It lacks an objective evaluation of the role of Internet businesses. D.It does not address the technical aspects of Internet communication. 57. What will the future be like when everybody gets online?
A.People will be dealing with two different realities. B.People will have equal access to information. C.People don’t have to travel to see the world. D.People don’t have to communicate face to face. 58. What does the passage say about the authors of The New Digital Age? A.They leave many questions unanswered concerning the Internet. B.They are optimist ic about the future of the Internet revolution. C.They have explored the unknown territories of the virtual world. D.They don’t take sides in analyzing the effects of the Internet.
(C) Why should mankind explore space? Why should money, time and effort be spent exploring and researching something with so few apparent benefits? Why should resources be spent on space rather than on conditions and people on Earth? These are questions that, understandably, are very often asked. Perhaps the best answer lies in our genetic makeup as human beings. What drove our ancestors to move from the trees into the plains, and on into all possible areas and environments? The wider the spread of a species, the better its chance of survival. Perhaps the best reason for exploring space is this genetic tendency to expand wherever possible. Nearly every successful civilization has explored, because by doing so, any dangers in surrounding areas can be identified and prepared for. Without knowledge, we may be completely destroyed by the danger. With knowledge, we can lessen its effects. Exploration also allows minerals and other potential resources to be found. Even if we have no immediate need of them, they will perhaps be useful later. Resources may be more than physical possessions. Knowledge or techniques have been acquired through exploration. The techniques may have medical applications which can improve the length or quality of our lives. We have already benefited from other spin-offs including improvements in earthquake prediction, in satellites for weather forecasting and in communications systems. Even non-stick pans and mirrored sunglasses are by-products of technological developments in the space industry! While many resources are spent on what seems a small return, the exploration of
space allows creative, brave and intelligent members of our species to focus on what
may serve to save us. While space may hold many wonders and explanations of how the
universe was formed or how it works, it also holds dangers. The danger exists, but
knowledge can help human being to survive. Without the ability to reach out across
space, the chance to save ourselves might not exist.
While Earth is the only planet known to support life, surely the adaptive ability
of humans would allow us to live on other planets. It is true that the lifestyle would
be different, but human life and cultures have adapted in the past and surely could
in the future.
59. Why does the author mention the questions in Paragraph l?
A. To express his doubts.
B. To introduce points for discussion.
C. To compare different ideas. D. To describe the conditions on Earth.
60. What is the reason for exploring space based on Paragraph 2?
A. Humans are nature-born to do so.
B. Humans have the tendency to fight.
C. Humans may find new sources of fo od.
D. Humans don't like to stay in the same place.
61. The underlined word “spin-offs” in Paragraph 4 probably refers to
A. survival chances
B. potential resources
C. unexpected benefits
D. physical possessions
62. What makes it possible for humans to live on other planets'?
A. Our genetic makeup.
B. The adaptive ability of' humans.
C. Resources on the earth.
D. By-products in space exploration.
Why is it that some people seem to learn several languages without any effort, while
for others learning just one foreign language is neither enjoyable nor successful?
What makes learning a new language so easy for some and so difficult for others.
We each have our own preferred way of learning as a result of our cultural and
educational backgrounds and our p ersonalities. Experts have identified different
Visual Learners usually enjoy reading and prefer to see an image of the words they are learning. They like looking at pictures and flashcards. Auditory Learners, on the other hand, prefer to learn by listening. They enjoy conversations and talking to others. They don’t need to see words written down. One study revealed that Japanese students tend to be Visual Learners, while English-speaking American, prefer the auditory learning style.
Some people like to learn by using their hands to touch objects, while others like to move around and need frequent breaks from sitting at a desk.
There are Analytical Learners, meaning they enjoy understanding how the language works. They love studying grammar rules and like to focus on details, whereas Global Learners are more interested in communicating their ideas and are not worried about whether what they say is grammatically correct.
In spoken English, the Japanese tend to be Reflective Learners. They think carefully before they speak to ensure their message is accurate. They do not make so many mistakes but their communication is slower. European learners tend to be Impulsive Learners. They speak more fluently and worry about how well they are communicating rather than how many mistakes they are making.
So, to do well in a language, you should identify your style and try to find a class that will teach you the way you want to learn. For example, if you are a Reflective Learner, you may not do so well in a purely conversational class and as an Auditory Learner, you probably don’t want to do so much reading. In fact if you are an Auditory Learner, you are probably not enjoying yourself right now! 63. The passage mainly talks about ______.
A. the difficult learning styles of some people B. the easy learning ways of other people C. the different learning styles of the Japanese D. the different learning methods of all the people 64. Which of the following phrases isn’t connected with the learning style? A. The way people are taught to learn a language. B. The place where people are from. C. The size of people.
D. The kind of person people are.
65. Analytical Learners ______.
A. are similar to Global Learners
B. never worry about mistakes
C. love to study details
do well in conversation

Who am I going to talk to if you’re not there? M: Well, why don’t you join me in my next project? I was planning to ask you anyway. I’ve decided to try long-distance running. W: What?! Are you serious? You haven’t done any running for years, have you? M: No, but I’m confident I can get fit enough if I take it step by step and don’t try to do too much. Why don’t you join me? We can do together. W: I don’t know. I’ve seen how hard that sort of thing is. I’m not sure I’d find it very easy. 第 4 段材料 M: Hi, Jennie, do you hear of the Skill-training Center?
W: Yes, of course. It aims to help students improve their study techniques. You know, last term I had to do a research paper, but I had no idea how to collect research material until I took one of the courses at the Center.
M: Is there any course that could help me with exams? W: They have one on test-taking skills. You should find that useful, I think. M: You’re probably right. Where is the Center? W: They hold most of their courses in the library, but the main office is in Staunton
Hall, right across the square form the Physics Tower. M: You know, I think I’ll go over there right now. W: Why don’t you wait until tomorrow? Right now, what you need is to go home and
catch up on your sleep. 第 5 段材料 M: And today on our holiday programme we have some information about a cycling holiday.
It is run by Pathway Holidays, and it’s from Monday 12th June until Saturday 17th June. On this trip, you cycle from Whitehaven in the northwest of England to Sunderland in the northeast. The total cost of the tour is 652 pounds and that includes your hotel, all meals, the transport of your luggage and a tour guide. This is someone who knows the area and can tell you about it during the trip. In fact, the price includes everything except bicycle hire. It’s possible to hire a bicycle and you should book one in advance if you want to do that, but they recommend bringing your own bicycle. It’s often more comfortable to ride one that you are used to. Entertainment is provided in the first hotel in Whitehaven—there’ll be a musical evening on the first day. On Wednesday evening, the hotel you are staying in will organize a quiz, and on the last evening—that’s Friday—there’ll be a party. If you’d like more information about the trip, the company Pathway Holidays advises you to look at their website, and I’ll tell you what that is in a minute. We’re just going to talk to someone who did this cycling holiday recently…
第二节 听取信息 M: Good morning. Today I’m going to tell you a little about our school library. We
regard our library as a pool of resources that you may need. It has a collection of 80,000 books and 90 kinds of newspapers and magazines. The books are in two categories, those for lending and those for reference. They are all located on the first floor. For newspapers and magazines, they are available on the second floor. Our library is also open to the local citizens, and there are differences for the students and the public. Our current students can borrow up to 12 books at a time, however for the rest, the maximum they can borrow is 9. You need to return the books on time. Or your library account will be blocked and you can’t borrow any more books. Remember, books have different due days according to their popularity. Mostly, the books can be kept for a month by full-time students, but for the popular books, you have to bring them back within only one week. As for reference books, newspapers and magazines, they cannot be taken out of the library under any circumstances. Then the opening hour, our library is open from 9:00 a.m. till 10 p.m. every weekday. For the weekends, it’s only open from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please bear that in mind, so you won’t come in vain. To gain access to the library, you just need to bring your library card or student card and touch it in front of the touch point and the door will automatically open for you. Now, any questions?
