A man was sitting in the park watching the ducks on the pond, when a
woman went to him. She had a white dog. She sat down on a bench, took out a magazine and began to read. The dog was sitting between her and the man. After it had been sitting quietly for about ten minutes, the dog turned and looked up at the man.
“Excuse me,” the dog said, “but you look like a kind man. Please buy me from this terrible woman.”
The man could hardly believe his ears. A dog spoke to him in English!
“She is so mean to me, ” the dog continued, “She never pets me or plays with me. She doesn’t feed me properly and she often beats me when she’s in a bad mood, which is most of the time.”
The man was amazed to hear the dog say all this. He was even more surprised when the dog added, “And I’m really a very good dog. I’m quite famous, too. I won a medal in the last war and was twice wounded in action. I’ve saved three children— two from drowning and one from a fire.”
The man decided that he would try to buy the dog from the woman. He would pay a lot of money if necessary. The dog would soon earn tens of thousands of dollars on television. It could be the world’s first talking dog.
“Excuse me,” he said to the woman, “but I love your little dog. Will you sell him to me? ”
“I’ll be glad to sell him,” the woman said. “You can have him for ten dollars.”
“Ten dollars!” the man said. “Only ten dollars? Why so little?” “Because, ” the woman said, “he always tells lies.”
( )31. The dog explained that it had ______.
A. stopped a fireman from saving three children

A sign is another kind of language. Here are some of them that you see on the roads.
Number One is a sign with a number on it. When drivers see this sign with thirty on it, they must
not go at more than thirty kilometers an hour. We see this sign when we are getting near a town.
Number Two is a sign that we’re near a crossing. We must drive carefully.
Number Three is a sign that there is a bend (拐弯) in the road. Again, we must drive slowly. It is not safe to go around a bend very fast.
Number Four is a sign that there is another road coming in from the right. There is a junction (交叉) at this place.
Number Five is a sign that there is a hill and Number Six is a sign that the road gets narrow. Drivers must devote his attention to the drive and go slowly.
Number Seven has the word “SCHOOL” on it. This is a sign that there is a school at the side of the street or the road. Perhaps there are children going to or leaving school. So drivers must look carefully and go slowly.
Number Eight is a sign with the letter “P” on it. The letter “P” means “Parking”. In some places, there are the signs “No parking” or “No waiting”. If a driver leaves his car near one of these signs, a policeman may come and write down the number of the car.
( )34. At the places where you see Sign 1 with 30 on it, ______.

The new book Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is warmly welcomed by the children in China. It sells well across China. You can see and hear the advertisements about the book here and there.
Why is the book so attractive to children? After reading it, I was attracted by the magic world. I can not help asking: where is our own Harry Potter?
China has a long history and colorful culture. With a large market of teenagers, China published (出版) many popular books among children. However, why are the present books not as good as those foreign ones?
Firstly, quite a number of children’s books are focused on teaching, and they have little interest value. Reading them, children often have a feeling of being “educated”. Certainly, they don’t like them. Secondly, fewer children like the same stories, but most Chinese books are usually much the same. One knows the ending as early as in the beginning. Finally, the writers seldom think about children’s needs. Reading for children should be interesting, and written in their language.
( )37. About the present Chinese children’s books, which is NOT right?
A. They have little interest value. B. Our writers seldom know children’s needs.
C. Most of them are the same. D. They are better than foreign ones.
( )38. Harry Potter is so popular because ______.
A. it’s the same as Chinese books B. it can lead children into a wonderful world
C. it’s not written in children’s language D. it’s advertised more often on TV or posters
( )39. The underlined phrase “First-class” means ______.
A. very simple B. low level C. really good D. extra difficult
( )40. “Where is our own Harry Potter?” refers to ______.
A. the writer can’t find any books for children
B. Chinese parents should buy Harry Potter for their children
C. our children should learn from Harry Potter
D. Chinese writers should write better books for children
( )41. The passage mainly tells us ______.
A. ways to read books B. our children need another magic boy
C. ways to choose books D. our children need more better books
One thing that British and Chinese cultures share is a love
for fine tea. Today, when we think of Western tea culture, we
often think of the English and beautiful china tea cups.
People believe that an English lady, Anna, first introduced
the idea of afternoon tea. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the
English ate two main meals each day—breakfast and a heavy
supper that would last for several hours in the evening. As a
result, people often got very hungry during the long wait
between these two meals. To solve this problem, Anna came up with the clever idea of inviting some friends to join her for an afternoon meal between four and five o’clock. This meal included cakes and sandwiches, and tea was served to wash down the food. In order to make this afternoon meal important, fine china cups and plates, and silver teapots, knives, forks and spoons were used. Soon afternoon tea parties became popular. Today, afternoon tea parties continue to play an important part in the social life in modern Britain.
Will you come for coffee?
Coffee also has an important role in British culture. People often use the words “Will you come for coffee?” to mean “Would you like to come to my home for a chat?” Usually several different drinks such as tea, hot chocolate or a soft drink like orange juice will be served as well as coffee, and you will be asked what you would like. However, you will not be offered wine at a “coffee” party. Coffeehouse and the London Stock Exchange
In the 17th century London, coffeehouses were busy and noisy places. Businessmen and bankers went to coffeehouses to do their business, as well as to drink coffee. In fact the London Stock（股票）Exchange is believed to have started from these coffeehouses.
( )42. Anna introduced the idea of drinking afternoon tea because she______.
A. enjoyed chatting with her friends in the afternoon at home
B. loved fine tea and beautiful china tea cups in the tea party
C. wanted to share some nice food and some fine tea with her friends
D. found people felt hungry during the long wait between the two meals
( )43. If someone says to you “Will you come for coffee?”, you ______.
A. will be offered some coffee or some wine
B. will be asked to have a chat with him or her
C. are asked what you would like to drink or eat
D. are invited to take part in an afternoon tea party
( )44. We can learn from the last paragraph that ______.
A. a new business was started in coffeehouses
B. businessmen went to coffeehouses just for coffee
C. coffeehouses are still used by bankers in Britain
D. people don’t go to coffeehouses because of the noise

We’ve had the Tiger Mom, the Wolf Dad, now we have the Eagle Dad. The Eagle Dad is a man from Nanjing who uploaded a video of his four-year-old son running through the snow and cold of New York’s central Park. The boy was dressed only in pants and sneakers. And the video shows the boy crying, his skin bright red from the cold.
The man was very proud of the video and his treatment of the boy. He said that, just like the eagle, a parent should be tough on his child. He said hardship and suffering would make the child strong and successful. I suppose the Tiger Mom would agree. She said that punishment was one way to make the child work harder. And the Wolf Dad would certainly agree. He said that beating a child was a good way to make the child successful in school.
Many people, of course disagree. They say that people who treat their children the same way that some animals treat their young are close to criminality. The fact that many people also agree with those kinds of parents shows that they are confused (困惑) about how to raise children properly.
All parents love their children and want to do what is best for them. But tough love may not be the best way for all children. The better way for the Eagle Dad is to take some of his feathers and use them to keep his child warm.
76. Where is the Eagle Dad from?
77. What was his son doing in the video?
78. Why is he called the Eagle Dad ?
79. Who would agree with the Eagle Dad’s treatment of the children?
80. What is the writer’s advice?
