I don’t remember when it first started annoying me — her hands pushing my hair that way. But it 36 annoy me, for they felt work-worn and rough(粗糙的) __37__ my young skin. 38 , one night, I shouted out at her, “Don’t do that anymore — your hands are too rough!” She didn’t say anything in 39 . But never again did my mother close out my day with that familiar 40 of her love. Lying awake long afterward, my words stuck to me. But pride kept my conscience(良知) back, and I didn’t tell her I was 41 .
Time after time, with the passing years, my thoughts 42 to that night. By then I missed my mother’s hands, missed her goodnight kiss upon my forehead. Sometimes the__43___ seemed very close , sometimes 44 . But always it hid in the back of my mind.
Well, the years have passed, and I’m not a little girl any more. Mom is 45 her mid-seventies and those hands I once thought to be so rough are 46 doing things for me and my family. She cooks the best fried chicken in the world, gets stains out of blue jeans and still insisted on dishing out ice cream at any hour of the day or night. Through the years, my mother’s hands have put in countless hours of labor.
Now, my own children are grown and gone. Mom no longer has Dad, and on special 47 , I find myself drawn next door to 48 the night with her. So it was late on Thanksgiving Eve, as I slept in the bedroom of my 49 , a familiar hand hesitantly(犹豫地) stole across my face to 50 the hair from my forehead. Then a kiss, ever so gently, touched my eyebrow.
In my memory, for the thousandth time, I recalled the night, when my young voice 51 , “Don’t do that anymore — your hands are too rough!” Catching Mom’s hand in hand, I spoke out how sorry I was 52 that night. I thought 2
she’d remember 53 I did. But Mom didn’t know what I was talking about. She had forgotten — and forgiven — long ago. That night, I fell asleep with a new 54 for my gentle mother and her 55 hands.

A woman heads into a popular New York City coffee shop on a cold winter morning. Just ahead of her, a man drops a few papers. The woman pauses to help gather them.
A clerk at a busy store thanks a customer who has just bought something. “Enjoy,” the young woman says, smiling widely. “Have a nice day.” She sounds like she really means it. These are the common situations we may see every day.
However, in her best-selling book Talk to the Hand, Lynne Truss argues that common good manners such as saying “Excuse me” almost no longer exist. There are certainly plenty who would agree with her. According to one recent study, 70 percent of the U.S. adults said people are ruder now than they were 20 years ago.
Is it really true? We decided to find out if good manners are really hard to see. In this politeness study, reporters were sent to many cities in the world. 3
They performed three experiments: “door tests” (would anyone hold the door open for them?); “paper drops” (who would help them gather a pile of “accidentally” dropped papers?); and “service tests” (which salesclerks would thank them for a purchase?)
In New York, 60 tests (20 of each type) were done. Along the way, the reporters met all types of people: men and women of different races, ages, professions, and income levels. And guess what? In the end, four out of every five people they met passed their politeness test –making New York the most polite city in the study.
56. What does Lynne Truss argue in Talk to the Hand?
A. “Excuse me” is not welcome nowadays.
B. People are not as polite as they used to.
C. Of all the adults in the US 70 are rude.
D. People don’t care about manners any more.
57. What is TRUE about the politeness study discussed in the passage?
A. The study was reported only in America.
B. New York was the most suitable city for the experiment.
C. Sixty tests were designed to see if people are polite to each other.
D. Experiments were performed to see if common good manners exist.
58. What is found in the study?
A. More people passed the tests in New York than in any other city in the study.
B. Different kinds of people acted differently in the New York tests.
C. Forty percent of the people passed the politeness test in the study.
D. Many people in the experiment passed the tests by guessing.
59. What is the best title of the passage?
A. Best-selling book Talk to the Hand.
B. What are good manners?
C. The importance of good manners.
D. Good manners exist or not?

The other day, my friend Jane was invited to a 40th birthday party. The time printed on the invitation was 7:30pm. Jane went off with her husband, expecting a merry evening of wine, food, and song.
By 9:45, everybody was having great fun, but no food had appeared. Jane and David were restless. Other guests began whispering that they, too, were starving. But no one wanted to leave, just in case some food was about to appear. By 11:00, there was still no food, and everyone was completely off their heads. 5
Jane and David left hungry and angry.
Their experience suggests that the words on the printed invitations need to be made clearer. Everyone reads and understands the invitations differently. Most of us would agree that 6:30pm –8:30pm means drinks only, go out to dinner afterwards; 8:00pm or 8:30pm means possible dinner, but 9:30pm and any time thereafter means no food, eat beforehand, roll up late.
But this is not always the case. If asked to a students' party at 6:30pm, it is normal for guests not to appear before midnight, if at all, and no one cares. Being the first to arrive - looking eager - is social death. When my mother is asked to a party for 6:30, she likes to be there, if not on time, then no later than seven. My age group (late thirties) falls somewhere between the two, but because we still think we're young, we're probably closer to student-time than grown-up time.
The accepted custom at present is confusing (混乱的), sometimes annoying, and it often means you may go home hungry, but it does lend every party that precious element (成分) of surprise.
63. The underlined words "off their heads" probably mean______.
A. tired B. energetic C. crazy D. relaxed
64. Jane and David' s story is used to show that______ .
A. Party-goers usually get hungry at parties
B. Party invitations can be confusing
C. People should ask for food at parties
D. Birthday parties for middle-aged people are dull
65. For some young people, arriving on time for a students' party will probably be considered_______.
A. very difficult B. particularly thoughtful
C. friendly and polite D. socially unacceptable
66. According to the writer, people in their late thirties_______.
A. are likely to arrive late for a party
B. always arrive on time
C. haven’t really grown up yet
D. like surprises at parties
67. What is the general idea of the text?
A. It' s safe to arrive late just when food is served.
B. It' s wise to eat something before going to a party.
C. It' s important to follow social rules of party-going.
D. It' s necessary to ask about the invitations beforehand.
I’d been 16 for six days and was already prepared to deal with failure. I 6
remember when my mum woke me up that morning; her voice wasn’t as scratchy as it usually was.
I stayed in bed for a few minutes. I was reluctant (不愿) to leave its warmth and comfort, and reluctant to face the problem that I’d let myself forget for the past six months. Finally, I dragged myself out of bed.
I finished getting ready and tried to settle down. It didn’t work, so I decided that my mum and I should go. We had a little time, so I thought we could practice parking. I failed, with the wheel hitting the pavement. After that, the little bit of confidence I’d had was gone. I tried two more times, but didn’t improve much. Then we headed to the test site.
I went into a room for some paperwork. And I waited for 20 minutes—just enough time to make myself believe that I was going to fail. Then, finally, it was my turn. I just wanted to get it over and make sure that I had to come back next Thursday.
I stepped outside and the sky was the light blue I love. It offered me some comfort and I realized something: sometime between when I pulled myself off the seat and when I got outside, I had become calmer.
The first thing I had to do was parking, which I did quite well. The confidence that came with it hit me like a wave. The rest of the test went well and I passed it all. As I drove back, the instructor told me I would not be coming back for a second test next Thursday.
Back in the building I didn’t have to say a word. My mum knew just by looking at me. Her smile made her face softer. And I’m sure it was at least as big as mine. But, her eyes looked kind of teary, so, I knew she was happy for me.
68. We can infer ______.
A. the writer’s mother hates him
B. the writer’s mother is always kind to him
C. the writer’s mother might sometimes wake him up rudely
D. never wakes him up in the morning
69. What has the author done probably in the past six months?
A. He has been ill in bed.
B. He has been learning to drive.
B. He has prepared to deal with failure.
D. He has been looking after his mother.
70. Which is TRUE according to the passage?
A. As he did well at the beginning of the test, his confidence grew.
B. He didn’t doubt that he could pass the driving test.
C. As soon as he got to the test site, he calmed down.
D. He was happy that he had to come back next Thursday.
71. Which word can be used to describe the writer’s character?
A. Uneasy. B. Unhappy. C. Unconfident. D. Unlucky.
A vuvuzela is a brightly-coloured plastic trumpet, usually about a metre long, which is commonly blown by fans at football matches in South Africa. Playing the vuvuzela requires a practiced combination of lip and lung action to produce an extremely loud, monotonous sound, a bit like a foghorn(雾笛).
The vuvuzela is said to be based on the Kudu horn, a tribal instrument used to gather the villagers to meetings. Originally made of tin(锡), the vuvuzela rose to popularity in South Africa at football matches in the late 1990s. Its fate was sealed in 2001, when South-African-based company Masincedane Sport began to produce in large quantities, therefore making it important equipment for football supporters across the country.
The origin（起源） of the word vuvuzela is uncertain. Some argue that it originates from the Zulu for 'making a loud noise'. Others maintain it relates to township slang for the word “shower”, because it showers people with music'.
72.What was the function(作用) of a vuvuzela in the very beginning?
A. Blown by football fans B. Make a loud noise
C. Warn the enemies D. Gather the villagers
73.What contributes a lot to the popularity of the vuvuzela?
A. Football matches
B. Its good sound quality
C. Mass production by Masincedane Sport
D. Its mysterious origin
74.Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. A vuvuzela is a type of foghorn.
B. A vuvuzela is made of tin
C. People have agreed on the origin of the word “vuvuzela”.
D. The origin of the word “vuvuzela” remains a mystery.
75.What is a vuvuzela often made of nowadays?
A. Tin B. Steel C. Plastic D. Bamboo
Hi, everyone! I will graduate from high school in June. Some of my foreign friends have asked me about the process of entering an American university, so here I will tell you how it works.
First you have to choose which university you want to attend. This is not easy, as there are over 3,000 universities and colleges in the USA. Do you want to stay near home, or do you want to go far away? What do you want to study? Once 8
you have decided what is important to you, I would suggest choosing about five schools to apply to. This way, if one or two schools do not accept you, you still have a chance of being accepted by the others.
After you have chosen which schools you would like to apply to, you have to complete an application form for each one. You also need to ask two or three of your teachers to write letters to the universities explaining why you would be a good university student. For many people, the worst part of applying for university is taking tests. Depending on which college or university you want to enter, you have to take either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), which tests your language, math and writing skills, or the American College Test (ACT), which tests your knowledge in English, math, science and history.
After you have been accepted to a university, you need to be able to pay for your study there. To help students pay for their education, the government offers loans which students do not have to repay until after they graduate. Scholarships are also available to students who have excellent grades, are good athletes or have financial needs. Because university tuition（学费） is so expensive, many students also work part-time while they are at university.
University courses are quite different from classes at high school. You only attend each class two or three times a week, you have to study a lot more outside of class. Classes are much bigger too and some can have as many as 200 students in them.
There will be many new things to learn, but I think I will enjoy university.

High school life plays an important role in our life development. We must make every effort to improve our study performance in the stage, because it prepares us for an ideal college. Meanwhile we also need to participate in various social activities to fully develop our interests and abilities. This way, we can enjoy a better life when we enter the society.
As far as I am concerned, high school is also an important stage to form our life values and positive life attitudes. Besides our study, we need to read more books, through which we can learn beyond class. It’s also necessary to learn to cooperate with each other by working on common interests.
