With the Chinese language growing in popularity, the UK government plans to invest(投资) 10 million pounds to help more kids learn Mandarin(普通话). Do you think it is necessary for the UK pupils to learn Mandarin? Some people share their opinions online.
Ted(UK): The learning of any language can be valuable and rewarding, but it is not suitable for everyone. Chinese is a difficult language to learn and the UK has a poor reputation for teaching foreign languages. Why should they learn Chinese when most people in the world speak English?
Mark(US): I studied French for 2 years in high school and German for 4 years in college. I studied Mandarin informally for about 4 months before moving to China. Now I speak Mandarin every day as my wife doesn’t speak English. But it is far from being fluent. Learning additional languages is a great thing, which offers a different perspective on the world around us. Nowadays, it’s almost necessary to be able to speak more than just your native tongue.
George (UK): No, unless they’re taught from a very early stage of childhood. Mandarin is so difficult. If China really is going to dominate the world, it’ll have to do so by speaking the world’s dominant language---English.
Sam (UK): I don’t think Chinese will become as widely spoken throughout the world as English. It is too difficult to learn as a second language. To learn Chinese you completely have to devote yourself to learning how to write and read it. If you have to learn it besides other subjects you can’t be good at it. But Chinese will become more popular, and that is a good thing.
21．What is probably Mark’s main motivation（动机） for learning Chinese?
A. Further education. B. Effective communication
C. His frequent travel D. The official policy
22．What does Sam think of learning Chinese?
A. It’s necessary. B.It’s of little use.
C. It takes too much time. D.It’s not popular.
23．What seems to be the major problem when foreigners try to learn Chinese?
A. Its difficulty as a language B. Misunderstanding about China
C. The great popularity of English D. A lack of learning resources.

It’s been just over a year since 9-year-old Zion Harvey received a double-hand transplant(移植), and now, what he really wants to do is playing football. “I feel happy about my new hands, and I don’t feel different. I like that now I can throw a football further than when I didn’t have hands,” he said.
The nation’s youngest hand-transplant patient has been working hard to learn how to use his new hands. He lost his hands and his feet 7 years ago after suffering from a serious infection. In August, the boy showed off his new abilities by throwing out the first ball at a baseball game. Dr. Scott Levin, team leader of Zion’s operation, said Zion was faced with the operation much braver than many adults. “I’ve never seen Zion cry,” Levin said. “He’s just an amazing boy. He has such courage and determination and gives us all inspiration.”
Zion said his courage came from the two most amazing people: his mom and his grandma. His mother, Pattie Ray, said, “It’s been a long journey but now I feel like I am living in my dream. It’s his dream, and it’s mine, too. I’m just living through him, and I’m just here to support him in any way and help him do whatever he wants to do.”
However，Zion told reporters his mom wouldn’t let him try out for football. His mom said it’s too dangerous. She also pointed out that he might be playing against little kids, not professionals, and she told him they would discuss it later. Zion tried to counter her argument. “My next goal: convince Mom to let me play football,” he said.
27. What is Zion’s attitude towards his transplanted hands?
A. He likes them a lot B. He tries to ignore them
C. He accepts them unwillingly D. He has mixed feelings about them.
28. What did Dr. Scott Levin think of Zion?
A. He was unusually quiet. B. He was well worth praising.
C. He was cleverer than expected. D. He was a talented football player.
29. Which of the following words can best describe Pattie Ray?
A. Sensitive and strict. B. Devoted and supportive
C. Optimistic and active D. Open-minded and outgoing.
30. What does the underlined word “counter” in the last paragraph mean?
A. Accept B. Prove C. Be against D. Comment
What would you like to be when you grow up? A teacher? A doctor? An astronaut? What do you need to do to achieve your dream job? Perhaps you think that studying well and then going on to work hard will get you successful career you want. We are constantly taught that our hard work will eventually pay off.
But a government survey has shown that hard work is not the only thing that will help you to move up the ladder. Two thirds of people believe that who you know matters more than what you know when it comes to social activity. So are the connections that you have more important than your education?
76% of the people in the survey believed that family background is important in influencing your chances of success. They believe that if you are privileged from birth, you are more likely to have a successful career, especially if your family is wealthy.
Even if you don’t have a privileged background, the people you know can still make a difference to your career. Networking is a skill which is encouraged by many career advisers. Some companies run networking workshops to try and encourage staff to meet other people, to communicate and build relationships. It’s a valuable skill.
But the survey also showed something quite interesting. Although most people believed that networks are more important than education, many people put their own career success down to talent, rather than background. 41% of the people said that their parents’ income had influenced their life, but at the same time, another 41% believed that they had achieved their own success.
So which is more important, what you know or who you know? It seems that by working hard and making lots of connections, the answer may be that both are very important.

A. Practice makes perfect B. Nothing is impossible

When we feel great, a smile comes naturally. It’s not natural to smile when we’re sad or upset. But it turns out that smiling might be the best thing to do when you’re ready to shift into a brighter mood.
Scientists have found that smiling on purpose can help people feel better. 36 Smiling on purpose changes brain chemistry. So it can be a big help to people who are dealing with depression and anxiety.

A true and genuine smile is called a Duchenne smile. It uses all the muscles in the face, including the “laughter lines” around your eyes. 39 If you are smiling on purpose to help lift your mood, you will notice some changes in your face. But you may ignore these tiny changes in your face. 40 You can see how it feels by holding a pencil horizontally between your teeth as you smile.
A. Your fake smile is now a real one!
B. You can do something to help yourself smile.
C. Using all these muscles is important, even in a fake smile.
D. It’s an expression of our joy, happiness, appreciation or excitement
E. These changes are lifted cheeks and your laughter lines.

Imagine loving someone so much that you’d swim more than 5,000 miles to see him or her. Dindim manages to swim that far every year to 41 his friend John.
This is 42, not only because of the love between the two friends, but because Dindim is 43 a penguin.
John found Dindim covered in oil, hardly 44 on a beach near his home. He picked him up, cleaned him off and brought him to his house where he 45 him and got him healthy again. John named him Dindim.
After a week, he 46 the penguin back to the beach and tried to release him, 47 Dindim refused to leave John. They 48 together for the next eleven months. Then, Dindim disappeared. 49, John thought he’d never see his friend again.
But just a few months 50 , Dindim was back. He found John on the beach, and followed him home. Each year, he 51 for four months to live with other penguins. For the other eight months, he lives with John.
John says that each time they meet again, Dindim seems 52 to see him. He says he loves the penguin as if he were his own 53. He feels certain that Dindim loves him in the 54 way.
Ecologist Carl Safina says that animals can and do love humans. He writes and speaks a lot about animals and their 55. According to Carl, it’s obvious that animals feel love for humans. What’s less obvious is whether or not human love animals enough to 56 them. Hundreds of thousands of animals are 57 by the same oil that covered Dindim when John found him. Fifty percent of 58 has disappeared in the last 40 years because of humans 59 their habitats. Scientists say we’re in a new mass extinction period. In the next two 60, they predict that we’ll lose 75 percent of the remaining species on earth.

Last Sunday, I, along with my friends Li Ming, Wang Lin and Han Mei, decided to go on a picnic by our bike. We started early in the morning, with bags filling with food, drinks and fruit. We soon arrived to our destination. We took out a piece of cloths and unfold it on the grass. Next, we put our food on it and shared the food together. We suggested that Wang Lin, who is good at singing, gave us a performance. Enjoy the beautiful songs and the surrounding scenery, I felt really happy. When the sun went down, we collected all the rubbish and put in a bag. When other people saw that we were doing, they thought highly of us for their act of environmental protection.

I’m writing to persuade you to let us surf the Internet in the classroom. We know you’re afraid that we may be exposed to unhealthy websites. Actually every coin has two sides. We still think that surfing the Internet can bring us much more advantages。
First of all, I think it would be better if we can surf the Internet, because there is a wide range of learning resources on the Internet that we should make good use of. Furthermore, we can broaden our horizons by reading various news online. Last but not least, as high school students, we are building up our sense of judgment. Given chances, we are sure that we will learn how to stay away from unhealthy websites.
I do hope you can take my advice into consideration and make a final decision.
Looking forward to your reply.
