When I was twenty years old, my grandmother invited me to Europe. I had never been to foreign countries before, so I was very excited. When I told my professor about the trip, he suggested, “Keep a journal.” More than ten years later, I am so thankful for his suggestion, as I can look back on this first trip to Europe through my journal.
Keeping a travel journal is very simple. During your vacation, write down the things that interest you. They may not be the tourist attractions but some small things, such as a meal and a talk.
Choose a good journal book that you like. The size of your book is also important. It should feel good in your hand. Some people feel that a travel journal book should be small and easy to carry, while others prefer a large-sized one. My journal has always been about 8*11 inches. I haven’t found any real problems with carrying it. It fits well into a backpack. You’d better get your journal with a waterproof(防水的) cover.
You can write with different kinds of pens or pencils to make your journal look beautiful. Even if you are not good at drawing, a journal can make you more creative. You will find yourself quickly drawing things or writing poems in your journal. Bring back some pictures and postcards so that you can put them in your journal. You can cut them into the shapes you like so that you can make your journal look more beautiful.
Tourist maps are also a wonderful thing to add to your journal because they show where you have been.
There are so many things you can write in your journal, such as the beautiful sights, a person you have seen in a museum, a café that has caught your attention and your feelings about your trip. All these small details do make up your trip.

My husband and I were out shopping on a cold day. On the way out of the parking lot, we saw a man standing on the grass, holding a sign. The sign didn’t say anything about needing money or food, but simply said, “Help would be appreciated(感激)!”
My husband wanted to give him some money, but he just had credit cards with him, so he picked up a bag of fast food and gave it to the man. But thinking about what we gave wouldn’t be enough, we parked and asked him to go to a restaurant with us. He looked at us for a moment as if we were crazy, but then followed us.
The man told us that he was trying to save money for some candles that can warm him up, not for food that day. My heart broke. I explained that it was our treat and he could pick out anything he wanted from the menu. He said he always wanted to try a double cheeseburger, but had never got the chance. So we bought him a double cheeseburger and hot coffee. The total was around nine dollars. It was a piece of cake for us, but the world to him.
He said he had lost his flat after losing his job. Since then he’d lived in a tent because the shelters were full and he wanted to leave room for women and children. After he finished eating, we went to a store and bought some candles for him. Then we said goodbye.
We saw that man in our car a couple more times. We would give him a few dollars if we had any cash with us. Then one day, he just wasn’t there. A year passed and we never met again. One day, my husband and I went to the fast food place to treat ourselves. We heard a voice say “hi” while we were looking up at the menu. It was that man. He had been working there for eight months. He was preparing to get a flat, too.
We talked about how his life was going before there was a line behind us. Then I said we should probably pick something and get out of the way. He said, “I’ll treat you.”
He set down a tray(托盘) in front of us, with double cheeseburgers and hot coffee. I picked it up, thanked him and walked away before I started crying. What he didn’t know was that my husband had been without a job for six months. We only had last twenty-five dollars. The meal may not have meant much to him anymore, but it meant a lot to me. I sat down at the table, looked at the food and smiled.
41. Why did the writer’s husband give a bag of fast food to the man?
A. He wanted to help the man but he had no cash with him.
B. He had several bags of fast food in the car.
C. He wanted to leave the parking lot right away.
D. He knew the man needed food after reading his sign.
42. What can we learn about the man when they met for the first time?
A. The writer thought the man was crazy.
B. He was out of work after moving out of his flat.
C. Some women and children refused to share the shelter with him.
D. He couldn’t believe the writer and her husband would help him further.
43. When the writer met the man a year later, ________.
A. the man had got a job B. the man had bought a new flat
C. she didn’t recognize(认出) him at first D. the man had no change

In the Middle Eastern country of Lebanon, there are more than 1 million refugees(难民). Youssef was 10 years old when a local Syrian musician discovered his talent: a deep, powerful voice—well-suited to traditional songs. However, Syria’s civil war took place soon. He and his family lost their home.
When the Action for Hope Music School announced that it was looking for talented children to train, his family encouraged him to attend the school. A year and half later, the now-14-year-old, Yousssef, with another 11 children, was chosen to take part in a concert.
Youssef, a shy boy, was a lead singer in the concert. He gave a confident performance of traditional Syrian songs. “We only heard the sound of a mortar(迫击炮). It fell near us. A whole building came down. That is all I remember,” said Youssef. “Music makes me forget everything. Music is the most important thing.”
Basma, director of Action for Hope, said the music school offers children who suffers from the war strength. They can find a good way to express themselves and stop thinking of themselves as refugees.
“Art gives strength. It comes from the ability to create,” Basma said. “People who are in difficult conditions need this strength much more than the rich.”
46. When was Youssef’s talent discovered?

48. Who did the Action for Hope Music School look for?

English is quickly becoming known as the world language. It’s used far more widely than all the other spoken languages. And it is an official language in 60 countries as well as many small areas. It has become the most useful language to learn for international travel. What’s more, English is also a most important language on the Internet. So it’s necessary and important for you to learn English properly.
To learn English well, first of all you need to read any English language newspaper. You can go as slowly as you can in order to understand the meaning of what you are reading. While the structure of English is simpler than many other languages, its idioms(习语) make it more difficult to fully understand.
Secondly, you can find some children’s books to read. Those books, such as fables(寓言), short stories and legends are good because they are interesting and easy to read. Reading such stories can help you get more new words. Those who learn English as a second language can also choose children’s books with illustrations(插画).
Thirdly, every day, try to write down some of the key new words you have got that day. Go through this dictionary once a week so that you can recall the meanings of these words and they can stick in your memory forever. Every time you go through this dictionary, imagine the meanings of those words. What’s more, try to use the words you’ve noted in your dictionary in your daily conversation with your friends.
Last but not least, to learn English well, you should also read aloud as often as you can. If you’re too shy to talk with others, you’ll be only a loser. So you should talk with others in English. Reading aloud will help give you more confidence so that you can speak the words clearly.

There was once a young man who began to feel self-satisfied after some small achievements. One day, the young man took a walk with a wise man from the town. On the way the young man was showing off about h 71 , but the wise man didn’t say a word. When they c 72 to the top of the mountain, the wise man asked, “Look down. What do you see?”

“What do you feel?” the wise man asked.
“Everything is b 74 me. I feel I rule the world,” the young man answered.
The wise man said n 75 . After a minute, he asked the young man to look up. “What do you see this time?” the wise man asked.
“I saw birds f 76 around high mountains, the white clouds on the mountains and the blue sky above the white clouds,” the young man answered.
