During the years when I lived in Chicago, I drove a school bus.
Twenty-nine children all had stories to tell me about their summers. Peter, though, __21__ me.
From the first day on, Peter was __22__. If a fight broke out I didn’t have to turn my __23__ to know who had started it. If a girl was crying, chances were that Peter had __24__ her hair. No matter how I spoke to him, gently or __25__, he wouldn’t say a word. He’d just __26__ me with those big gray eyes of his.
One day, I found a small tin heart on the bus was gone. “Does anyone know __27__ happened to the little heart here?” I asked. Some children cried, “Peter __28__ it! Search him!”
When I asked him to come forward, his gaze burned into my eyes. I stuck my hand into one pocket. Then I felt it -- the __29__ outline of the small tin heart. Peter stared at me for a long time.

I was about to pull the tin heart out of Peter’s pocket __32__ I stopped myself. Let him keep it!
I said, “It must have fallen off before I got here.” Without a word, Peter __33__ to his seat. When he got off at his stop, he didn’t so much as glance at me. Several days later, just that __34__ Peter moved away.
A dozen years after retirement we met in the street.
To my __35__, he hugged me. After he let go, he pulled something from his pocket and held it up for me to see. An old key chain… bent out of shape, the lettering faded. You can probably guess what it was -- the little tin heart.
“You were the only one who kept trying,” he explained. We hugged again, and went our separate ways. I was so happy I’d done a good job.

Education is not an end, but a means to an end. In other words, we do not educate children only for the purpose of educating them. Our purpose is to fit them for life.
In some modern countries it has for some time been fashionable to think that by free education for all, whether rich or poor, clever or stupid, one can solve all the problems of society and build a perfect nation. But we can already see that free education for all is not enough: we find in such countries a far larger number of people with university degrees than there are jobs for them to fill. Because of their degree, they refuse to do what they think “low” work; and in fact, work with hands is thought to be dirty and shameful in such countries. But we have only to think a moment to understand that the work of a completely uneducated farmer is far more important than that of a professor; we can live without education, but we die if we have no food. If no one cleaned our streets and took the rubbish away from our houses, we would get terrible diseases in our towns.
B. greeted B. active B. position
C. ignored C. attention C. played C. carefully C. stare at C. who C. left C. shining C. desires C. ask C. when C. wanted C. autumn C. sadness
D. told D. noisy D. head D. stole D. proudly
D. concentrate on D. what D. said D. black D. ways D. disappoint D. if D. intended D. winter D. annoyance
22. A. troublesome C. independent
B. pulled B. secretly B. depend on B. how B. did B. familiar B. tears B. like B. while B. came B. summer B. surprise
In fact, when we say that all of us must be educated to fit us for life, it means that we are educated in such a way that, firstly, each of us can do whatever work suited to his brains and ability, and secondly, that we realize that all jobs are necessary to society, and that it is very bad to be ashamed of one’s work. Only such a type of education can be considered valuable to society.
1. The writer of this passage thinks that ________.
A. free education can solve all of the world’s problems
B. free education for all probably leads to a perfect world
C. free education won’t help to solve social problems at all
D. all the social problems can’t be solved by free education
2. The writer wants to prove that ___________.
A. our society needs all kinds of jobs
B. our society needs free education for all
C. a farmer is more important than a professor
D. people with university degrees earn more money
3. According to the passage, ____________.
A. work with hands is dirty and shameful
B. work with hands is low work
C. work with hands is the most important
D. we can’t regard work with hands as low work
4. The purpose of education is ___________.
A. to choose a system of education
B. to let everyone receive education
C. to prepare children for their future life
D. to prepare children for well-paid jobs
One day we decided to go Brisbane City for a visit. We were all excited as we boarded the train. We had heard so many things about South bank and Queen Street Mall. We arrived in Central and made our way through the city and over the Victoria Bridge to South bank.
It was getting close to lunchtime, so we decided to eat at one of the eateries （餐馆）. Just as we had all finished, our little girl Mini fell sideways off her chair onto the ground. We all jumped to help Mini get up, but as York lifted her, we noticed drops of blood on the ground. Her forehead was bleeding quite badly.
All the children went white with shock（震惊）. Grampy went to find help as York held Mini and I put a hand against the wound. Help arrived and we were guided to the first aid room. James was crying. After a while we were advised to go to the nearest hospital for stitches（缝合）. Our big Brisbane adventure was over, for Mini needed medical attention.
At the hospital we were all 4
home first and leave Blossom，York and Mini at the hospital. Somewhat disappointed and sad, we sat quietly on the train. Everyone’s thoughts were on little Mini in the hospital.
Later that afternoon, when the three of them returned, we all checked Mini’s injury and were so thankful that she was well. Though the accident, we realized that our family is united. We could have all been very disappointed at missing South bank, but we weren’t.
5．According to the passage at least how many people went to Brisbane City?
A．three B．four C．five D．six
6．The underlined phrase “on edge” （in paragraph 4） probably means ______/

Some people make you feel comfortable when they are around. You spend an hour with them and feel as if you have known them half your life. These people have something in common. And once we know what it is, we can try to do it ourselves.
How is it done? Here are several skills that good talkers have. If you follow the skills, they’ll help you put people at their ease, and make friends with them quickly.
First of all, good talkers ask questions. Almost anyone, no matter how shy he is, will answer a question. One well-known businesswoman says, “At business lunches, I always ask people what they did that morning. It’s a common question, but it will get things going.” From there you can move on to other matters—sometimes to really personal questions. And how he answers will let you know how far you can go.
Second, once good talkers have asked questions, they listen to the answers. This point seems clear, but it isn’t. Your questions should have a point and help to tell what sort of pers on you are talking to. And to find out, you really have to listen carefully and attentively.
Real listening at least means some things. First it means not to change the subject of conversation. If someone sticks to one topic, you can take it as a fact that he’s really interested in it. Real listening also means not just listening to words, but to tones of voice. If the voice sounds dull, then, it’s time for you to change the subject.
Finally, good talkers know well how to deal with the occasion of parting. If you’re saying good-bye, you may give him a firm handshake and say, “I’ve really enjoyed meeting you.” If you want to see that person again, don’t keep it a secret. Let people know what you feel, and they may walk away feeling as if they’ve known you half their life.
9. Asking questions might be a quite good and suitable way _______.
A. for you to make more and more new friends
B. to begin your business talks
C. to get the conversation going smoothly
D. for you to make a deep and lasting impression on others
10. After having asked somebody a question, it’ll be polite of you to _______.
A. make clear what kind of person he is
B. listen to his reply attentively
C. wait quietly and patiently for his answer
D. go on asking him more questions
11. Generally speaking, good talkers are persons who _______.
A. are good at making any topic interesting
B. never talk too much or too little
C. always speak in a gentle way
D. know how and when they should change the topic of the talk
12. If you really take delight in meeting someone again, _______.
A. you may take him as your lifelong trustworthy friend
B. it seems necessary for you to let him know it
C. it’s proper for you to give him a second handshake
D. it’ll be helpful for you to have further understanding of him
