Ever since that 49 phone call to my grandmother, we have talked at least once a week. I regret not calling her earlier.

Once there was a strong camel. She liked dancing very much. She wanted to be a ballet (芭蕾舞) dancer. “To make every movement a thing of beauty,” said the camel, “is my dream.”
Again and again she practiced. She repeated the five basic positions a hundred times each day. She worked for long months under the hot sun, but not once did she think of stopping.
At last the camel said, “Now, I am a dancer.” She gave a performance and danced before an invited group of friends. She did very well. When her dance was over, she made a deep bow.
There was no applause (鼓掌). Instead, everyone laughed at her.
“I must tell you frankly,” said one of her friends, “you are lumpy and humpy. You don’t have any talent in dancing. You are, like the rest of us, simply a camel. You are just an animal. You are not and never will be a ballet dancer!” With these words, they moved away across the sand, laughing and joking.
“How wrong they are!” said the camel. “I have worked hard. I will be a good dancer. I will dance and dance just for myself.” That is what she did. It gave her many years of pleasure.
She practiced hard and made much progress in her dancing skills. Occasionally, the camel was chosen to perform at an animal party before her old friends. The camel was lucky because she knew exactly what she wanted and she never gave up.

On the first day of the New Year 2017，I made up my mind to go to Thailand to teach English as a volunteer. At the beginning, all I cared about was travelling and seeing the world. I didn’t know how fantastic my life would be in the coming months!
My journey began with attending TESOL certification(认证) course in my home state of Florida last February. After 3 weekends of study and another 40 hours’ study online, I received my TESOL certificate(证书).
I was asked to contact Philip，who is Program Director of the Teach in Thailand. After discussing with Philip，I chose my school and after many months of excitement，I finally flew to Thailand in early April and I couldn’t wait to explore the country!
After a few weeks of single travel，I met up with Philip and the other new teachers in my program in Bangkok. It was great to meet other people who were on the same journey as me，see some cool sights and walk in Thailand’s cities! After that, I attended the weeklong seminar(研讨会). At the end of the seminar, I was transported to my school—Anuban Buriram Primary School.
I truly love my job—I teach Grades 5 and 6 and I have the cleverest and most active kids in the world. It’s a truly fantastic thing that you can see the difference you make in someone else’s life, right in front of you!
Buriram is a small city with green rice fields. People here are more friendly than anyone I’ve ever met—I’ve never been anywhere where a smile is so easily received，where everyone you pass is so friendly to say “Hello” and “Good morning”. I’ve been taken out to countless dinners，and been lent a guitar，a camera，and I am given Thai treats and the most delicious fresh fruits many times a week. I only hope to repay(回报) them in the future.
58. To teach English in a foreign country, one has to .
A. graduate from university B. receive a certificate of TESOL
C. be trained in a summer course D. take a course online
59. What di d the writer do right away after arriving in Thailand?

C. He attended a seminar in Bangkok. D. He met with other volunteers.
60. In the last paragraph the writer is trying to show .

D. that he wants to repay the people who helped him

When watching sports events, we often notice athletes wearing earphones before the competition. They keep their eyes shut, and gently nod along the beats. It seems the music is giving them power and cheering them up for the competition. But is there any science behind such practices? [来源:学科网]
According to a new research, it turns out there is. Music makes us feel powerful, but not all songs have the same effect.
The research was led by Dennis Hsu of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in the US. His team had people listen to 31 songs of different types. The listeners felt powerful after listening to some songs, for example Queen’s We Will Rock You and 2 Unlimited’s Get Ready for This.
Researchers also found that high-power music made people want to take control in social events and come first in competition.
That matters a lot in sports. “It’s commonly said that sports are 90 percent mental(心理的) and only 10 percent physical(身体的),” The Huffington Post reported.
Great athletes know this idea well. NBA player Kobe Bryant, for example, often puts on big headphones and even falls into deep thought to boost his game and reduce his anxiety(焦虑).
Why does music have magical power? Hsu’s team explained: when people hear music that expresses a sense of power, they mimic (模拟) these feelings in their mind.
When choosing music, we also need to look at the type of music, according to researchers.
In the research by the Music in Exercise and Sport Group at Brunel University in London, they found that pop was perfect for slower tasks. If you’re warming up or cooling down after exercises, pop songs are the correct choice. Dance music was found to be best suitable for strength and weight training.
62. With the first paragraph, the writer mainly wants to ______.
A. prove the music can help athletes win the competition
B. describe athletes’ common habits before sports games
C. get readers to wonder whether music matters in sports
D. explain why athletes like listening to music bef ore games
63. Which of the following might Dennis Hsu agree with?
A. Listening to music always makes an athlete come first in their competition.
B. People listening to powerful music may produce similar feelings in their mind.
C. Most athletes still don’t know the influence of high-power music on their games.
D. The result of a game is mainly influenced by the physical condition of the players.
64. What does the underlined word “boost” in the sixth paragraph probably mean?
A. control B. lose C. continue D. improve
65. The wrier makes his points clear mainly ______.
A. by comparing B. by giving examples
C. by giving general rules D. by using English sayings

所填单词的正确形式。(每空一词) Two days ago, I had taken a test in Biology, and I knew that I would get my scores in the [来源:学&科&网Z&X&X&K]
same class today.
After the bell rang, every student sat in his or her seat impatiently. Then, one by one, the
teacher called our names.
As each paper was given back to the correct student, the front of the answer paper would always be turned to face the ground and the paper itself would be slightly folded (折叠) to prevent anyone from seeing.
In fact, folding each test paper is a way to make sure that each student sees only his or her own scores. The scores are seen as private information not to be announced or shown to others. As a way to keep the students' score records secret, each student is given an online account (帐号) with which to check his or her grades posted on the official school website.
Protecting students' private information always comes first in US schools that want to free students from unnecessary pressure. School reports are guarded closely to prevent poor grades from damaging a student's dignity and reputation (尊严和声誉), which are for himself or herself only.
However, some insist that although students' feelings and self-dignity are easily hurt, they cannot be forever protected. They say that school also teach their students to make themselves stronger in mind, and the classroom should show the reality of competition in society. Scores that everyone can see might better encourage students to work harder to be better than others.

He hopes he can have a real holiday without homework so that he can have more time to do sports and he wishes his parents could give him a peaceful home.
His big dream is to be the general manager of a big company.

Jack was a third-year student in a primary school. He was not interested in his lessons. He spent most of his time reading stories, having sports or watching TV. At night, he stayed up late because of cartoons or sports games. In the morning, he usually hurried to school. Sometimes he was so tired that he slept in class.
His mother was worried about his poor school work. She tried to make him work harder. She told him that if he could get a hundred in the exam, he would be given ten dollars as a prize. Jack was very happy to hear that.
The next day, he came running home. "Oh, Mum, I got a hundred." he shouted, "I got forty in reading this morning and sixty in spelling this afternoon."
