One day after school, I went to the teacher’s office to see my teacher, but nobody was there. As I was about to leave, I noticed a piece of paper on the floor. I picked it up and saw the words “FINAL-TERM EXAMINATION” at the top.I put the paper into my schoolbag secretly and ran out of the room.
After I came back home, I took out the paper quickly. It was the exam paper of my worst subject, History. I felt excited. My heart beat fast. I took out my History book and started working on the answer. I had never answered any questions so seriously.
On the day of the History exam, I went into the exam hall confidently. When the paper was sent to me, I dreamt of getting the highest mark in the whole grade and could not help smiling.“My History teacher always encouraged me to work hard and get better grades, but I let him down time and time again. This time I will give him a big surprise,” I thought.
When the teacher said we could start, I turned the paper over. To my surprise, all the questions were different. Later I felt nervous. In the end, I almost left the paper undone. After the exam, I ran to the toilet, took out the paper and carefully read it from the top. Oh! It was last year’s exam paper. I read all the questions but I hadn’t read the date.
This is a lesson in which I know I have to put my feet on the ground. I regretted doing such a silly thing. After that, I told my teacher the truth and I promised to be honest. From then on, I worked harder than ever before.

D.After he read the paper in the toilet.
39.What might the writer write in his diary?
A.I’m glad that I did very well in the exam.I gave my teacher...
B.After the exam,my teacher asked me to go to his office.My heart...
C.When I turned over the paper,I couldn’t help smiling.My teacher...
D.I’m truly sorry for what I did.Everyone should be honest.I’ll...
35.B 细节理解题。由文章第一句中I went to the teacher’s office to see my teacher可知选择B项。
36.C 细节理解题。由文章第三段第三句话中but I let him down time and time again可知选择C项。“time and time again(多次,一再)”和题干中的always意思相近。
37.A 细节理解题。由文章第四段第二句话To my surprise,all the questions were different.可知作者发现试题不同时的感受是吃惊。由此可知A项正确。本题易错选C,由文章第四段第三句Later I felt nervous.可知C选项nervous是吃惊之后的感受,所以不正确。
38.D 细节理解题。由第四段的After the exam,I ran to the toilet...It was last year’s exam paper.可知作者是在考试结束后去厕所读了试卷才知道他捡到的试卷是去年的试卷。由此可知D项正确。
39.D 推理判断题。由文章最后一段中的I regretted doing such a silly thing.可推知作者对于这件事情很懊悔,故A和C不正确。由I told my teacher the truth and I promised to be honest可知作者主动找老师承认错误并保证以后会诚实。故B不正确。所以选D项。
Why are your study habits different from those of your friends? Why do you seem to learn faster in some classes while more slowly in others? One reason you may not know is that people have different learning types.Scientists say there are three different learning types:Visual(视觉型),Auditory(听觉型)and Kinesthetic(动觉型).
Visual learners learn best by seeing.If you seem to easily remember information from pictures,graphs(图表)and videos,you are probably a visual learner.You’re not good at copying down what the teacher says in class.Never mind.You can draw graphs or pictures instead,if you find that works better for you.
Auditory learners learn best by hearing.If you seem to easily remember things by hearing them,then you are probably an auditory learner.You must listen carefully while the teacher is speaking because it’s the easiest way for you to learn.Sometimes you may find that taking notes stops you from listening carefully.After class,you can write down what you remember or borrow your friends’ notes to copy.
Kinesthetic learners learn best by doing.If you seem to learn best by working with your hands,you are probably a kinesthetic learner.Taking notes by writing can make you pay close attention to information as you receive it.Of course,you can learn best by making full use of labs or other class activities.
Hope you learn better by knowing what your personal learning type is.
40.There are different learning types according to the passage.
A.two B.three C.four D.five
41.Jude can remember the words of a song quickly by listening to it once or twice.She might be a/an according to the passage.
A.auditory learner B.visual learner

42.Kinesthetic learners learn best by .
A.remembering information from videos
B.listening to teachers in class
C.drawing graphs or pictures
D.doing things with their hands
43.The best title of this passage may be “ ”.
A.Study Habits B.Ways to Study
C.Learning Types D.Reasons to Learn
40.B 细节理解题。由第一段最后一句Scientists say there are three different learning types...可知。
Why is setting goals(目标)important?Because goals can help you do and experience everything you want in life.Instead of just letting life happen to you,goals allow you to make your life happen.
Successful people in life imagine how their life should be and set lots of goals. 44 It’s like having a sign to show you where you want to go.Think of it this way.There are two drivers.One has a place to go to clearly in mind which can be found on a map.He can drive straight there surely without any wasted time.The other driver has no goal,or a map. 45 But he drives aimlessly(漫无目的地)around,never getting anywhere,just using up oil.Which driver do you want to be?
46 They decide what they want in life and then get there by setting goals and making plans.Unsuccessful people usually just let life happen by accident.Goals aren’t difficult to set and they aren’t difficult to reach. 47 You are the one who must decide what to achieve and in what direction to aim your life.
Research tells us that when we write a goal down we are more likely to achieve it. 48 They are harder to forget.Also when you write your goals in your own way,you are able to make yourself realize situations that will bring you nearer to your goal.
A.Written goals can be reviewed usually.
B.He starts off at the same time from the same place.
C.It’s up to you to find out what your goals really are.
D.By setting goals you are taking control of your life.
E.Winners in life set goals and follow through on them.
44. 45. 46. 47. 48.
44.D 由下一句“It’s like having a sign to show you where you want to go.”可知此处应该选择D项。
46.E 此处与后面的“Unsuccessful people...”形成对比。
48.A 此处承接上一句话。A项中的Written goals与前面的write a goal down照应,故应该选择A。
Reading Outside Class
As we all know,reading has a lot of benefit.
What kind of books do you like reading?Why?
Do you read e-books?Why or why not?
When do you usually read?
How long do you read a day or a week?
Reading Outside Class
As we all know,reading has a lot of benefit.It can open our eyes because books are full of knowledge,and it makes us wiser and richer in life.I like reading newspapers and magazines,from which I get lots of fun and learn about what’s going on around the world.I also read storybooks and novels in my spare time,which makes me relaxed and happy.I seldom read e-books because they’re bad for eyes.On weekends,I usually spend a whole afternoon reading in the library.And I also read for about half an hour before going to bed every night.
The summer vacation is coming.I plan to read more including classics and English books to improve my language skills.I’m sure reading can make a difference to my life.
