One day Merlin received an invitation to attend a music party.He was very pleased and a little excited.As the day of the party came near,Merlin began to think how to make a grand entrance(隆重登场)at the party.He had an idea.He thought he would get a lot of attention if he could skate into the room.
Merlin tried different ways to make himself roll.Finally,he decided to put two wheels under each shoe.These were the first roller skates in the world.Merlin was very proud of his invention and dreamed of arriving at the party on wheels while playing the violin.
On the night of the party Merlin rolled into the room playing his violin.Everyone was surprised to see him.There was just one problem.Merlin had no way to stop his roller skates.He rolled on and on.Suddenly,he ran into a huge mirror that was hanging on the wall.Down fell the mirror,breaking into pieces.Nobody forgot Merlin's entrance!

Cat cafés to open in Toronto & Montreal
Soon,people in Toronto may be able to enjoy a hot chocolate or a coffee in a“cat café”.Two groups of people in the city are trying to raise enough money to open cat cafés.
The idea is simple:a café for humans—with lots of cats around.People will be able to pet the cats while they're sipping their coffee.There are already cat cafés in places like England,France and in Asia like in Japan,South Korea and China.
Jennifer Morozowich plans to open her Kitty Cat Café in September.She told The Toronto Star that it will have six to fifteen cats.Morozowich is a cat lover who says that cats help to lower people's stress levels.She is also planning to host special“Litter-ature”events,with the Dundas West Animal Hospital,at her café,with kids reading to the cats.
Some experts say that reading to animals helps kids learn to read better because animals enjoy hearing the human voice and kids don't have to feel stress about making mistakes while they're reading.
Another cat café,Pet Me Meow,will be open in autumn if Ashkan Rahimi and Jeff Ro have their way.They are trying to raise money to open a place where cats will live,and people can come in and buy a coffee and hang out with the cats.
Both sets of possible café owners will have to make sure their cafés are very clean.The City of Toronto has many rules that people have to follow who want to serve food to humans when there are animals nearby.For example,the animal boxes need to be in a separate space away from the eating area.
The café owners will get the cats from rescue shelters(救护所).If the coffee drinkers fall in love with a certain cat,they may be able to take it home.
The Toronto cat cafés won't be Canada's first.Happy Cat Café is opening in July in Montreal.
36.The underlined word“sipping”in the second paragraph probably means“ ”.
A.selling B.getting C.drinking D.making
37.According to the passage,Jennifer Morozowich .
A.is a star from Toronto B.likes cats very much
C.owns a cat café now D.lives under much stress
38.We can learn from the passage that .
A.reading to cats may help kids make fewer mistakes
B.people mustn't take the cats of the cat cafés home
C.Canada will probably have three cat cafés this year
D.the cat cafés have to give food to animals nearby
39.The passage might be .
A.a news report B.an animal story
C.a meeting notice D.a pet advertisement
37.B 细节理解题。由第三段第三句可知,Jennifer Morozowich是一个非常喜爱猫的人。
38.C 推理判断题。文章第三段第一句话中提到Jennifer Morozowich的Kitty猫咖啡店计划在九月开始营业;第五段提到在秋季会有一家叫Pet Me Meow的咖啡店开业;最后一段提到在七月蒙特利尔的幸福猫咖啡店将开始营业。故C项正确。
Most of us could probably live without vegetables,but a world without chocolate? Now that would be hard! According to chocolate makers it could happen if we don't act soon.
There are two main causes of the chocolate shortage—chocolate's growing popularity and less production of cocoa,the plant from which chocolate is made.With more and more people in India and China loving chocolate,not much can be done about the first cause.
Therefore,the only thing we can do is to increase cocoa production.However,new plant diseases and little rain in Ivory Coast and Ghana,the world's largest producers,have reduced cocoa production by 40 percent in the past 10 years.What's worse,many cocoa farmers in Africa and other cocoa-producing countries like Indonesia and Venezuela are changing to easier-to-grow crops such as corn or rubber.This way,the farmers can make more money.
To prevent more farmers from changing,researchers at the newly opened International Cocoa Control Centre,in the UK,are trying to create new cocoa plants that are stronger and faster growing.But first they must make sure the new plants are safe to grow.This takes a long time.
First,each new plant is stored at the Control Centre for six months to make sure it is healthy.It is then planted in the Centre's fields,studied and tested for another two years.Only after scientists are certain that they're disease-free,will the plants be sent to farmers in West Africa or wherever else they are needed.
To create new stronger types of cocoa,scientists at the Centre are combining the best parts from different cocoa plants.Though the world is facing a serious chocolate shortage,there is now hope!
40.The first paragraph tells us that .
A.chocolate is healthier than vegetables
B.the world could soon be without chocolate
C.people love vegetables more than chocolate
D.it's not necessary to eat so much chocolate
41.In which countries has chocolate become more popular in recent years?
A.Venezuela and Indonesia.
B.Ivory Coast and Ghana.
C.Indonesia and China.
D.China and India.
42.Cocoa farmers are choosing to grow rubber and corn because these crops .
A.can make them more money
B.need less rain to grow
C.can be planted more times each year
D.are not damaged by plant diseases
43.How long does it take scientists at the Centre to make sure a cocoa plant is safe to grow?
A.6 months. B.12 months.
C.24 months. D.30 months.
44.What is one of the purposes of the Cocoa Control Centre?
A.To introduce cocoa production to more countries.
B.To provide more chocolate for British people.
C.To produce stronger types of cocoa plants.
D.To make sure that cocoa is healthy to eat.
41.D 细节理解题。由第二段最后一句“With more and more people in India and China loving chocolate...”可知。
42.A 细节理解题。根据第三段最后一句“This way,the farmers can make more money.”可知选A。
43.D 推理判断题。根据第五段中的“First,each new plant is stored at the Control Centre for six months...It is then planted in the Centre's fields,studied and tested for another two years.”可得出需要2年6个月,即30个月。故答案为D项。
44.C 细节理解题。由第四段中“To prevent more farmers from changing,researchers at the newly opened International Cocoa Control Centre,in the UK,are trying to create new cocoa plants that are stronger and faster growing.”可知。

I am writing to tell you about the survey I've made on“Using paper cards or e-cards?”in our class.
I am writing to tell you about the survey I've made on“Using paper cards or e-cards?”in our class.
About 30% of the students want to use paper cards.First of all,they are made by hand and they can show people's real feelings.Second,they are easy to take and can be kept for long.Thirdly,people can read them without computers.
However,around 70% of the students prefer to use e-cards.For one thing,e-cards can carry lots of information and people can send them quickly.For another thing,using e-cards can save paper so that our environment can be protected well.What's more,people can make various designs they like.
I think we'd better use e-cards more to save natural resources.But on some particular occasions,we can also use paper cards to show our real feelings.
