If you plan to visit Fiji, you are probably looking for some fun things to do. Below are four unusual places.
The Poseidon Resort
  The Poseidon resort is an underwater resort that gives visitors a beautiful view of sea life. This resort covers 255 acres. It’s covered and surrounded by a lagoon (咸水湖) that covers 5,000 acres and is about 90 feet under water, giving you a beautiful view of sea life right before your eyes. This resort even has a hotel for those who would prefer to have the unusual experience of sleeping and waking up to the beautiful scenery all around them.
The Sabeto Mud Pool
  If you’re looking for something unusual to do, you can’t pass up the mud pool at Sabeto. It is located in a mountain range with a huge group of Geothermal (地热的) pools full of nice, warm mud. Getting down and into the mud in the pool is believed to have benefits for healthy skin. This is unusual, but adults and especially kids will love it.
Fire Walking
  Fire walking in Fiji is believed to have originated on the island of Beau. Fire walking is when you walk on white-hot stones barefoot. To do this, you have to be mentally prepared for it. Trust me; there is a lot of preparation and strict rules that travelers follow in order to do this safely.
The Fiji Museum
  The Fiji museum is unusual due to all the amazing artifacts you’ll see dating back 3,000-4,000 years. This museum has a certain attraction that makes it funny—a shoe. It’s been said that a man named Thomas Baker was eaten by the locals several centuries ago and the  only  thing left was his shoe. This unusual museum is a great idea if you bring the whole family to Fiji.
21. Visitors who have the unusual experience of sleeping at the Poseidon resort can _________.
   A. enjoy the excellent service in the hotel

   D. Why people love to visit the places.

Lita Cabellut is one of Spain’s most successful artists. Her paintings now sell for more than $100,000, but she spent her early years living on the streets.
Cabellut was born in 1961. While she was a baby, she was left with her grandmother by her parents. In fact, she spent most of her time out with other homeless children on the streets.
She didn’t go to school and it never crossed her mind that one day she would become an artist. So what changed Cabellut’s life so greatly?
Cabel lut’s grandmother died when she was about 10 years old. And she lived in an orphanage(孤儿院) before being adopted by a family at the age of 12. They took her to museums and introduced her to art. One painting by Goya, a famous Spanish painter, made a deep impression on her. She even tried to copy one of Goya’s other paintings. The result was not very good, but her adopted family encouraged her to keep painting.
And for the first time in her life, she also started going to school. She says, “It’s hard to start learning to read and write when you are 13. I had a lot of private classes at home because I had to learn everything.” She slowly made progress at school and started to listen to t he radio program Voice of Art. After graduating from university, she kept painting.
Today, Cabellut is best known for her portraits (肖像画),which include not only paintings of famous people such as Charlie Chaplin, but also ordinary people who some might consider ugly.
“I don’t see ugly people,” says Cabellut. “I paint different people. I paint people in whom you need to find the real beauty behind the skin.”
She always says, “People are not buying just paintings---it’s the magic and emotion that is the spirit of art.”
25.We can learn from the text that Cabellut_______.
A. hasn’t succeeded as an artist
B. is more than fifty years old now
C. dreamed of being an artist as a little girl
D. was sent to an orphanage after her birth
26.What happened when Cabellut was about 10 years old?
A. She went to school for the first time.
B. She was adopted by a family.
C. Her grandmother passed away.
D. Her talent for painting was first found.
27.What do Cabellut’s paintings mainly focus on?
A. The appearance of different people.
B. The real beauty behind every person.
C. Famous people in different times.
D. People who are usually considered ugly.

Melbourne(墨尔本) is the second largest city in Australia, and is the capital city of the state of Victoria, always in competition with Sydney in different fields such as sport and economy. Melbourne is located near the Yarra River and for some time was the main city in Australia. It is called the Marvelous Melbourne for its unique environment; it has modern buildings, beautiful beaches and is the most multicultural city in the country. It attaches a lot of importance to sports. That is shown by the city hosting the famous Australian Tennis Open, the Melbourne Cup and the Australian Grand Prix.
Melbourne can be considered the world’s largest city in area, being about 6,110 square kilometers. It has many gardens and parks which occupy a third of the area.
The city was founded in 1835 by John Batman, and its name is in honor of 2nd Viscount Melbourne, William Lamb, during the British occupation of Victoria. After that, Melbou rne began to grow as a city and business centre on the north end of Port Phillip. In 1847 Melbourne wa s declared a city by Queen Victoria.
In 1850, with the gold discovery, Melbourne turned into a major port of Victoria region. The Melbourne’s hustle and bustle was unbelievable then, with ships from all over the world arriving there. In 1854 its population increased by nearly 400%. The city developed quickly and the service industry was introduced, and with all of this Melbourne became a main financial center in Australia.
Because of the gold rush, Melbourne received many migrants(移民)from many parts of the world, especially from Italy, Greece, Poland, Turkey and Vietnam. All of this contributed to making Melbourne a very special and varied city, and this mixture can also be seen in its restaurants, architecture and festivals.

  It is generally accepted these days that reading a book will help you relieve stress. And it may actually make you a more thoughtful person as you learn to connect with the various characters. But there’s more. A new study discovered that reading more than 3.5 hours per week actually increased a person’s lifespan(寿命)by 23 percent---about 12 years for the people involved in the study.
  The study was led by a group of researchers at Yale University. It looked at 3,635 people, both men and women but all older than 50. The researchers divided them into three categories: those who didn’t read books; those who read up to 3.5 hours a week; those who read more than 3.5 hours a week.
  After the researchers adjusted for factors like education, health and income, the data showed that, on average, those who read about 3.5 hours a week were 17 percent less likely to die.
  In addition, the study examined people who read newspapers and magazines and found that they were 11 percent less likely to die than non-readers, but only if they spent more than seven hours reading each week. That may be due to the different forms of these items. When people read newspapers or magazines, they tend to skim the material rather than read it fully. Avni Bavishi, the study’s leader, said, “We believe people need to know, learn and understand more things when they are reading books, because
They’re longer and there are more characters, more plots to follow, and more connections to make.”
  From all of this, the authors concluded that, as with a healthy diet and exercise, books appear to promote a “significant survival advantage.”
  Clearly, there is a need for more study. We’re certain that book lovers all around the world will be glad to provide the data needed to make further conclusions.
32. What can we learn from the first paragraph?
   A. A few people think that reading can help them relax.
   B. Reading can make a person more sensitive.
   C. Reading can help a person to live a longer life.
   D. Most people think that reading can help them to live a better life.
33. What can we learn about the people in the study from the text?
   A. All of them were older than fifty.
   B. Most of them were women readers.
   C. More than half of them were college students.
   D. They were divided into four groups by the researchers.
34. Generally speaking, those who read newspapers and magazines______ than those who read books.
   A. live longer
   B. are more likely to be positive
   C. have a better ability to understand
   D. get fewer benefits in terms of the lifespan
35. In the last paragraph, the writer aims to_________.
   A. tell readers about the importance of reading
   B. tell readers that the study needs more data
   C. call on book lovers to provide more data for the study
   D. encourage readers to make further conclusions by themselves

Dear Cathy,
 I’m glad to have received your letter.
From your letter, I learnt that your eyesight has decreased recently. It’s my pleasure to give you some suggestions on how to protect your eyes.
First of all, you should have a proper reading posture. Don’t read in bed, as it can do great harm to your eyes. Meanwhile, there should be plenty of light while you are reading. Besides, avoid watching TV, playing computer games or mobile phones
for a long time. What’s more, it’s important for you to do eye exercises twice a day and get a good sleep at night. Doing outdoor activities and looking out of the window to enjoy green trees and grass during break times are also good ways to make your eyes relaxed.
   If you follow  my suggestions above, your eyesight will be sure to improve gradually. I’m looking forward to receiving good news from you!
                                                            Yours,
                                                             Li Hua
