Each day I took the same route to work and passed
by a security guard (保安）.greeted everyone
walking by and made small talk with many of the
passers-by and wishing them well. His simple ―hello‖
made people feel part of my day. When he was absent, many people noticed it, and I felt a little bit empty.
The first few times, I didn’t say hello back to him when he greeted me. I was in my own world. On Monday the security guard asked me:“How was your weekend?” I told him about my visit to California, to see my mother, who had colon cancer. I how I visited her each month. ―The time with my mother is so precious(珍贵的), I know that each time may be the last.‖
He listened like a close friend I’d known for years. He felt my my love. He shared how he had lost his father to cancer two years before. He said, ―I understand what you are going through. My father passed away while I was serving in Germany. Because of some reasons I was unable to fly back in time. I was unable to say goodbye to him. I wish I could have been with him, given him a hug, and told him I loved him. You are really lucky to have the gift of As I walked away, I realized I did not even know his name. The following day, on my way to work, I said: ―After we spent all that time yesterday, I still don’t know your name.‖ He answered, ―Gary.‖ I responded back, ―I’m Deborah.‖
After that, we talked and shared stories about our weekends, dreams and families.
Later, Gary got a new job and moved away. It’s been several years since I last spoke to him, yet the memory feels like yesterday. Gary reached out to me, me and made my morning the best part of the day. I experienced the beauty of friendship and love.
In the business of life, we often forget to wish a stranger hello although how easy it is, and how great and lasting a it can make. When you say hello to a stranger you become like a pebble(鹅卵石) thrown into a pond. With each ripple (波纹）you create, you spread love that continues to keeps on giving.

A little girl walked to and from school every day. Though it was
not fine and clouds appeared in the sky that morning, the little girl
made her daily trip to school as usual. When school was over, winds became stronger and it began to rain.
The mother of the little girl felt worried that her daughter would
be afraid and that lightning might frighten(惊吓) her child. Following
the bright light of lightning, the mother quickly got into her car and
drove to her child’s school.
As the mother drove along the road, she saw her little girl
walking alone in the rain. To her great surprise, she found that when a
lightning came, her daughter stopped, looked up and smiled. Another lightning came and then another followed. With each lightning, the little girl stopped, looked up and smiled.
Inside the car, the mother asked her daughter, ―What were you doing? Why did you look up and smile when the lightning came?‖ The little girl answered with a smile, ―Mum, you know, God was looking at me. Each time I felt a little afraid walking in the rain, God would take a picture of me. I knew he was playing a game with me.‖

Stay as safe as possible during an earthquake. Be aware that some earthquakes are actually foreshocks(前震) and a larger earthquake might occur. Reduce your movements to a few steps to a nearby safe place.
If you are indoors, do ―duck, cover and hold‖. Duck or drop down to the floor, under something strong, such as a table or a desk, cover your head and face with your arms and hands and hold on to that table or desk so that it does not move away from you as the ground shakes. Do this until the shaking stops and it is safe to move. Stay inside to avoid being injured by falling glass or building parts. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch(蜷缩) in an inside corner of the building.
Stay clear of windows, fireplaces, and heavy furniture that may fall over. Stay inside until the shaking stops and it is safe to go outside. Research has shown that most injuries occur when people inside buildings attempt to move to a different location inside the building or try to leave. If you are outside, get into the open and stay there. Move away from trees, buildings, signs and power lines. Once in the open, stay there until the shaking stops. The greatest danger exists directly outside buildings, at exits and alongside exterior walls. Ground movement during an earthquake is seldom the direct cause of death or injury. Most earthquake-related casualties（伤亡） result from collapsing walls, flying glass, and falling objects. If you are driving, you may not realize what is going on at first because the car may feel like
it is going to blow up. Stop the car in as clear and open an area as possible and stay in it until the
shaking stops. If it is a really bad quake, turn on the radio to find an emergency channel to get
information. Follow the directions of people directing traffic.
If you are in a mountainous area, watch out for falling rock and other debris that could be
loosened by the earthquake.
If you are at the beach, move quickly to higher ground or several hundred yards inland.
53. Which of the following pictures means ―duck, cover and hold‖?
A B C D
54. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the text?
A. Ground movement during an earthquake is the main reason of death.
B. You should keep your windows, fireplaces and heavy furniture clear.
C. Stop your car in the clear area and get out of it if an earthquake happens.
D. Run away from the beach as quickly as possible if an earthquake happens.
55. The passage is mainly about ___________during the earthquake.
A. ways of keeping you safe B. the importance of keeping safe
C. ways of finding safe places D. researches on how to keep safe
Tony Buzan’s grades were going down
at university. Disappointed with his low marks, he
went to the library to find a book on how to use his
brain. He was directed to the medical section.
Confused, he said to the librarian, ―I don’t want to
take my brain out, I just want to learn how to use it.‖
Her reply was simple: ―There’s no book on that.‖
―I thought to myself,‖ says Buzan, ―if I buy a
little radio, I get an instruction manual (说明书). If I
buy a microwave, I get an instruction manual. But for the most important machine in the world, no
instruction manual?‖ Fifty years later, Buzan has become the world’s leading speaker on the brain and learning. In
the late 1960s, he invented the mind map, a visual representation of thought processes.
This kind of thinking has become a popular tool for planning, organizing, problem solving,
and communicating across the world. He has since authored and co-authored over 100 books that
have appeared in more than 30 languages. ―I think in most cases, people use less than 1 percent of their brains,‖ he says.
But how do you expand this 1 percent? How do you become the best student you can be?
According to Buzan, the answer is simple. You take a section of whatever it is that you are
trying to learn, he says, and you read it for its essence (精髓、要素). Then you make a mind map of all the important details. For a truly effective mind map, you start with a colored image in the
center of your page. Draw the first image that comes to mind on the topic you are mind mapping. Branch off from your central image and create one of your main ideas. From your main branches draw some sub-branches and from those sub-branches you can draw even more branches. He emphasizes that you should use plenty of images and colors as these help with memory recall and encourage creativity.
By using this visual format (形式), according to Buzan, your mind will begin to make associations that will help you remember more information for longer periods of time.
Buzan believes that traditional note-taking methods, such as lists and summaries, do not the brain’s recall capacity or ability in the same way. Because of this, students will often find themselves locked away in their rooms for hours, trying hard to memorize separate details. Buzan believes that for a more effective and lasting way of studying, you must first understand how your brain works.
―Everyone is born smart,‖ he says. ―You just have to learn how to learn.‖
56. What is the main purpose of the first two paragraphs?
A. To show that Tony Buzan was worried about his study.
B. To invite us to think about the importance of manuals.
C. To prove that the mind map is a useful tool for the brain.
D. To show why Tony Buzan studies the brain and learning.
57. What does the word ― mean in the passage?
A. Excite. B. Improve. C. Encourage. D. Affect.
58. What can we infer from the passage?
A. If we learn the mind map, we will become the best student.
B. The mind map will help your brain connect separate details.
C. The mind map will be more effective if we put more details in it.
D. We will solve the problem if we make connections between ideas.
59. What is the best title for the passage?
A. How to make the mind map? B. Is the mind map widely used?
C. Can your memory be mapped? D. Is the mind map helpful in thinking?

The iPhone 4S is a touchscreen-based smartphone
developed by Apple Inc. It is the fifth generation of the
iPhone, succeeding the iPhone 4, and was announced on
October 4, 2011. Siri on iPhone 4S is like a person assistant.
It lets you use your voice to do things on the iPhone. You
can just talk to Siri as you talk to a person. Siri understands
what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back.
Say something like ―Tell my wife I’m running late.‖
―Remind me to call the doctor.‖―Any fast food restaurants
around here?‖ Siri does what you say, finds the information you need, then answers you. It’s like you’re having a conversation with your assistant.
Siri not only understands what you say, but it’s also smart enough to know what you mean. So when you ask, ―Any fast food restaurants around here?‖ Siri will reply, ―I found a number of restaurants near you.‖ Then you can say, ―Hmm. How about French fries?‖ Siri remembers that you just asked about restaurants for something to eat, so it will look for KFC restaurants in the neighborhood. And Siri is active, so it will question you until it finds what you’re looking for. When you want to do something, just ask Siri to help you do it. Siri uses almost all the built-in apps on iPhone 4S. It writes texts and sends email messages. It searches the web for anything you need to know. It plays the songs you want to hear. It gives you directions and shows you around. It makes calls, plans meetings, helps you remember and wakes you up. In fact, ask Siri what it can do — it even speaks for itself.
Siri is easy to use and does so much. You’ll keep finding more and more ways to use it.

十、文段表达（15分） One possible version:
In our life, we communicate with others every day. It’s important to get on well with each other. However, it’s not an easy thing.
Once, two of my classmates and I were working on a wall
newspaper. I thought I had a great idea but they didn’t use it. I was sad and decided never to talk to them. But after giving it a second thought, I talked to them, telling them about my feelings and how I wished they could use my idea. They apologized to me sincerely and explained to me the reason. We got to understand each other and came up with a better idea which made the wall newspaper eye-catching.
From the experience, I know how important it is to have a
heart-to-heart talk, especially when having problems. If we try to understand each other more, we will enjoy a better relationship and more happiness.
