W: I read these instructions, but I'm still not sure how to use my mobile phone.
M: Actually，it's pretty easy. First of all，don't forget to turn it on.
W: Got it!
M: Then dial the number. And remember to press the “send” button.
W: I hear Bill was fired by his boss the other day.
M: Oh, yes, he was sick a lot and usually got to work late.
W: Oh, no. It wasn't that. He made a big mistake in last week's deal with the computer company.
W: How was your dinner party?
M: I think it went pretty well. People really seemed to enjoy themselves.
W: That's good.
M: Yeah, but we shouldn't have invited my wife's boss again. We can never get him to leave.
W: How did your interview go today，Ted?
M: I could not feel better about it. The questions they put to me were quite fair. I could answer them all.
W: The Special English programme on Channel 9 is my favourite. It helps me improve my listening.
M: Yes. It really helps a lot，especially for beginners.
M: How did you get into modeling，Stacy?
W: Well, when I graduated from art school, I moved to Los Angeles to look for work as an art director in a movie，but I never got any luck. And I was running out of money.
M: So what did you do?
W: I got a job as a waitress in a seafood restaurant. While I was working there, a customer offered me some work as a model. Within a few weeks，I was modeling full time.
M: Wow, what a lucky break!
W: What do you think?
M: Well ，it has just as many bedrooms as the last apartment. And the living room is huge.
W: But the bedrooms are too small. And there isn't enough closet space for my clothes.
M: And it's not as cheap as the last apartment we saw.
W: But the apartment was dark and it was in a dangerous neighbourhood.
M: Let's see if the manager of the sales department has something else to show us.
W: Hi, Albert. This is Helen.
M: Oh, Hi. How are things?
W: Just fine，thanks. Uh，are you doing anything on Saturday night?
M: Hmm. Saturday night? Let me think. Oh, yes. My cousin just called to say he was flying in that night. I told him I would pick him up.
W: Oh, that's too bad! It's my birthday. I'm having dinner with Daniel，and I thought I'd invite more people and make it a party.
M: I'm really sorry，but I won't be able to make it.
W: I'm sorry，too. But that's OK.
W: Nice to see you here! When did you arrive in this country?
M: Actually I'm traveling with a group. We have a very tight timetable，but as I happen to be here, I thought I might take a couple of hours off to see an old friend.
W: I am glad you did. I must apologize for sounding so rude just now for I was completely taken by surprise. You should have warned me that you were coming. Well，the most important thing is that you are here. What have you been doing so far?
M: As I just mentioned, I'm with a tourist group of old classmates, one of whom happens to be working for the tourist company. As most of us have already been to the southeastern Asian countries and some have never been to Europe, our tourist friend arranged this trip for us at a special reduced rate.
W: How lucky for you! Is it your first trip here? How have you found it?
M: Actually I've been here before, some years ago on a business trip, working for a government organization, so I've already done most of my sight－seeing in London and that's why I have some free time to myself this time.
W: Good. Now，tell me，what do you most like to see or do?
M: Well, I don't know really, I've already seen the most famous historical sites and scenic spots, and most impressive as they are, they don't tell me much about the real ordinary English people and the country.
W: I see what you mean. I'll drive you to the countryside to eat at a local pub tomorrow and perhaps you'll see something of the old England，though I must admit there is not much old England left by now. Many old village shops are closed and the village schools too. But you'll find the people in the countryside more friendly and relaxed.
I have been weak in hearing all my life. By the time I was five years old，putting on hearing aids in the morning was just as normal as brushing my teeth. However，I never believe that it should limit my success in any way.
I have been looked down upon during my 17 years. My head teacher told my parents I belonged to a school for the deaf. My classmates told me something was wrong with my brain. People speak louder than usual when they see my hearing aids in my ears.
However，my hearing disability has made me a stronger person. I have to work harder and earn top grades in school to earn the respect of my teachers. In sports, I have had to run faster, hit harder, catch better and score more points to prove I'm not physically limited. I consider myself not different from anyone else. In my struggle to prove I'm equal to my non－disabled classmates，I have made myself better than the average teenager.
I truly believe I would not be the strong person I am today if I did not have a hearing disability.

Love, like rare flowers, can grow in the strangest places. We asked couples to tell us where they met. We received over 700 stories，some sad, some funny, all wonderful. Here is a selection of the best stories they sent us.
Mike and Alice Brown met on a mountain. They were climbing in Wales in 1999 when the weather turned bad. Alice, an experienced climber, knew the way down the mountain, and she helped Mike and his brother reach safely. Mike bought her dinner to say thank you，and they were married a year later, “We live near the mountains, says Alice, and every morning when I look out of the window, I remember the day we met. ”
Jim and Donna Dormer, both 62, have an even stronger connection than mountains. Their meeting wasn't particularly interesting—they first saw each other in a bar—but when they started going out, they discovered one interesting fact. They were born in the same hospital. Not only that, but they were born in the same room. Jim says, “I show Donna a photo that my father took in the hospital just after I was born. In the background, you can just see another woman with her young baby. That woman was Donna's mother.”
New York couple Jack Kingsley and Marian Strauss met when he was cleaning the windows of her office on the 105th floor! Marian says, “I was in my office and this wonderfully handsome man was at my window, cleaning. It was a cold day, so I invited him in for a cup of coffee.

Memory, they say, is a matter of practice and exercise. If you have the wish and really make a conscious effort, then you can quite easily improve your ability to remember things. But even if you are successful, there are times when your memory seems to play tricks on you.
Sometimes you remember things that really did not happen. One morning last week, for example, I got up and found that I had left the front door unlocked all night, yet I clearly remembered locking it carefully the night before.
Memory “tricks” work the other way as well. Once in a while you remember not doing something and then find out that you did. One day last month, for example, I was sitting in a barbershop waiting for my turn to get a haircut，and suddenly I realized that I had got a haircut two days before at the barbershop across the street from my office.
We always seem to find something funny and amusing in incidents caused by people's forgetfulness or absent－mindedness. Stories about absent－minded professors have been told for years, and we never get tired of hearing new ones. Unfortunately, however, absent－mindedness is not always funny.

25．If you want to have a good memory，you should ______.
A．force yourself to remember things
B．make a conscious effort of practice and exercise
C．never stop learning
D．try hard to remember things
26．What can we infer from the last paragraph?
A．Absent－mindedness stories can bring people fun.
B．Absent－mindedness is more troublesome than forgetfulness.
C．Absent－minded professors are often amused by the incidents, too.
D．Absent－mindedness happens not only to professors but to all other people.

C．The Dangers of Forgetfulness
D．The Dangers of Absent－mindedness
25．解析：细节理解题。由第一段第二句“If you have the wish and really make a conscious effort, ...”可知，如果你想有一个好的记忆力的话，你应该有意识地进行练习和训练。
26．解析：推理判断题。由第四段第一句“We always seem to find something funny ...by people's forgetfulness or absent－mindedness”可知，有关健忘及心不在焉的故事可以带来乐趣。
Can Animals Be Nice?
Scientists recently discovered that animals who live in groups，such as elephants，foxes，and wolves，are especially likely to follow some rules. If they don't，the group might break apart. Group members would be forced to live alone. Then they'd have a harder time hunting and raising their young.
Sometimes，though，animals go out of their way to do what's right，even when there's nothing in it for them. Nobody knows why. Read the three surprising stories about nice behavior in the animal kingdom.
An Unexpected Gift Teleki，a scientist，has been running after Sniff and the other wild chimpanzees(黑猩猩) through the forest，observing their behavior. Now，he decided to knock down some fruits to fill his own stomach. Grabbing a stick，Teleki hit the branches，but he couldn't do it. Watching him，Sniff imagined himself in Teleki's place.It picked an armload of fruits，swung down on a branch，and handed them to the astonished scientist.
A Kind Heart Toby was one generous cat. For ten years，the kindly kitty shared his food with a dog named Katie. After supper，owner Gustafson always drops some food in Katie's bowl on the floor and some in Toby's dish on the kitchen counter. Gustafson kept the cat's dish up high to keep Katie from stealing Toby's treats. Katie didn't need to steal; she only had to beg. Every night she'd sit and stare at the cat. And Toby would flick some with his paw down to the waiting dog.
A Friend In Need An African savanna elephant was grazing alone when a stranger，a forest elephant，arrived who had caught his trunk in a trap. While freeing himself，he'd hurt his mouth. He needed a help until his mouth got better. The forest elephant walked up and stuck his trunk into the healthy elephant's mouth. Elephants often aid members of their herd. But this healthy elephant didn't care that they weren't related. He reached down，uprooted a small tree，and stuffed it into his new friend's mouth.
28.According to the passage，animals living in groups ________.
A．each do its own thing most of time
B．often kill those rule breakers
C．have social ties similar to the humans'
D．feel good by helping humans
29．What does “an unexpected gift” refer to in the first story?
A．Sniff was absolutely different from other chimpanzees.
B．Chimpanzees are finally proved to be the cleverest animals.
C．The lucky scientist found a new species of chimpanzees.
D．Sniff seemed to understand the scientist and helped him.
30．Why did Gustafson give the food to her pets separately?
A．Because she was afraid Katie stole Toby's food.
B．Because she knew Toby appreciated sharing food.
C．Because Katie always needed more food than Toby.
D．Because she was doing a research on animals' behaviors.
31．Which of the following questions isn't answered in the passage?
A．What did the chimpanzee do to the biologist?
B．How did the forest elephant get in trouble?
C．Why did the animals help those of different kinds?
D．How did the Gustafson's pets share their food?
29．解析：推理判断题。从An Unexpected Gift 中的“Watching him，Sniff imagined himself in Teleki's place.”可以推断出。
30．解析：细节理解题。从A Kind Heart 中的“Gustafson kept the cat's dish up high to keep Katie from stealing Toby's treats.”找到答案。
Wugging, or web use giving, describes the act of giving to charity at no cost to the user. By using Everyclick.com,_which is being added to a number of university computers across the UK, students can raise money every time they search, but it won't cost them a penny.
Research shows that students are extremely passionate about supporting charity—88% of full time students have used the Internet to give to charity. This age group is often the least likely to have their own income 19% of 22 to 24yearolds have shortterm debts of more than ￡5,000. With rising personal debt levels in this age group, due to university tuition fees or personal loans and a lack of longterm savings, traditional methods of donating to charity are often not appealing (有感染力的) or possible.
Beth Truman, a 21yearold recent university graduate, has used Everyclick.com to donate to her chosen charity, the RSPCA, for two years and has seen the “wugging” movement grow in popularity with students. “When you're at university you become more socially aware, but it's sometimes hard to give to others when you have little money yourself，” says Beth. “Wugging is great for people in this age group as it allows them to use the technology on a daily basis to give to charity, without costing them a single penny.”
Wugging is perfect for people who want to be more socially aware and supportive but don't feel they have the means to do so. Students using the web can raise money for causes they care about without costing them anything in terms of time or money, and charities get a valuable source of funding.
Everyclick.com works like any other search engine, allowing users to search for information, news and images but users can decide which of the UK's 170,000 charities they would like to support through their clicks. Everyclick.com then makes monthly payments to every registered charity. Launched in June 2005, Everyclick.com is now the eighth largest search engine and one of the busiest charity websites in the UK.
32. According to the passage, “wugging” is actually ________.
A. a website
B. a charityrelated action
C. a school organization
D. a student movement
33. In the case of charity, Everyclick.com________.
A. frees students of the financial worries
B. receives much money from students
C. offers valuable information to students
D. praises students for their moneyraising
34. What does Beth Truman think of the “wugging” movement?
A. It makes Everyclick.com popular in the UK.
B. It becomes easy to do charity because of it.
C. It results in students' more social awareness.
D. It helps students to save money.
35. What would be the BEST title for this passage?
A. “Wugging”， a new popular term on the Internet.
B. British people show strong interest in charity.
C. More Britain charities benefit from the Internet.
D. Students raise money for charity by “wugging”．
34．解析：从第三段中的“...it allows them to use the technology on a daily basis to give to charity”可知，B项正确。
While it is impossible to live completely free of stress, it is possible to prevent stress as well as reduce its effect when it can't be avoided. The US Department of Health and Human Services offers the following suggestions for ways to deal with stress.
Try physical activity
When you are nervous, angry or upset, try releasing the pressure through exercise or physical activity. Running, walking, playing tennis, or working in your garden are just some of the activities you might try. __36__ Your body and your mind will work together to ease the stress in your life.
Share your stress
It helps to talk to someone about your anxieties and worries. Perhaps a friend, family member, teacher or even your leader can help you get a better view of what's troubling you. If you feel your problem is serious, you might seek professional help from a psychologist or a doctor. __37__
Take care of yourself
You should make every effort to eat well and get enough rest. If you easily get angry and cannot sleep well enough, or if you're not eating properly, it will be more likely that you will fall into stressful situations. If stress repeatedly keeps you from sleeping, you should consult a doctor.
Make time for yourself
Schedule time for both work and entertainment. Don't forget, play can be just as important to you over－all well－being as work. You need a break from your daily routine to just relax and have fun. Go window－shopping or work on a hobby. __38__
Make a list of the things you need to do
Stress can result from disorganization and a feeling that “there's so much to do, and not enough time”. Trying to take care of everything at once can be too much for you and as a result, you may not achieve anything. Instead, make a list of everything you have to do, then do one thing at a time, checking off each task as it is completed. __39__
Go ahead and cry
__40__ It might even help you avoid a headache or other physical effects of anxiety and stress.
A．Do what you want to do.
B．Allow yourself at least a half hour each day to do something you enjoy.
C．Physical exercise will relieve your anxiety and worry and help you to relax.
D．Knowing who to ask for help is an important step in avoiding serious problems later.
E．Set out to do the most important tasks first.
F．A good cry can be a healthy way to bring relief to your anxiety.
G．Laugh when you want to.
When I was twelve years old，my family were the first black people to move into an allwhite part of Grand Rapids，Michigan. Many of our new __41__ weren't very welcoming. Some of the adults said __42__ that we should return where we came from. The __43__ sometimes threw stones at me or drove me home from __44__.

Miss Bean was the first teacher who ever made me __50__ myself.
She insisted on knowing what I thought about difficult questions. Was Thomas Jefferson __51__ to buy Louisiana from France？Why？She __52__ me to have an opinion and to be able to __53__ it up. Miss Bean taught me that thinking for yourself was the real key to __54__.
One day，when I was not paying attention in class，Miss Bean suddenly __55__ an eraser at me. Unbelievably，the eraser hit me right on the hand and __56__ my pencil flying. The whole class was __57__ at first，and then started laughing. This incident became famous in this school and，__58__ it happened to me，the students wanted to get to __59__ me.

42．解析：由“weren't very welcoming”以及“we should return where we came from”可知，邻居们对我们很不友好，因此答案选C。
43．解析：从第一段中“I was twelve years old”以及下文内容可推知，向“我”扔石头的应该是“孩子”，所以答案选B。
44．解析：由“drove me home”以及下文内容可知，他们把“我”从学校赶回家，因此答案选A。
45．解析：依据下文内容可知，Miss Bean对“我”很好，而其他大多数老师都不理会“我”，故答案选B。其他三个选项与take no notice of连用时，不符合语境。
47．解析：从下文“Instead of being unnoticed，I was given...”可推知，Miss Bean对“我”表示尊重，因此答案选C。
49．解析：从“to show that I was smart”可知此处应该是指老师给“我”一个机会，因此答案选B，而不是question“问题”，test“测试”，place“位置”。
50．解析：由下句“She insisted on knowing what I thought about difficult questions.”可推断，此处表示Miss Bean让“我”独立思考，因此答案选D。下文中“thinking for yourself”也有暗示。
52 解析：依据语境，Miss Bean鼓励“我”独立思考的目的是期望(expected)“我”有自己的观点，所以答案选D。
53．解析：根据语境，这里表示“能够支持自己的观点”，故答案选A，back up“支持，有助于”。而不是set up“建立”；put up“举起”；give up“放弃”。
55．解析：由下文“the eraser hit me right on the hand”可推知，这里表示Miss Bean把一个黑板擦朝“我”扔过来，故答案为B。
56．解析：表示某物处于某种状态，应用“send sth. doing”，因此答案选A。考生易误选C，但make的主语通常是人。
57．解析：由“and then started laughing”可推知，学生对老师的举动一开始感到非常吃惊(shocked)，而不是excited“兴奋的”，frightened“害怕的”，worried“担心的”。因此答案选D。
59．解析：既然“This incident became famous”以及“it happened to me”，所以学生开始认识“我”，故答案选B。
60．解析：依据上下文内容可知，此处是指“我”是如何成为学校里与以前不同的学生，因此答案选A，也与前文“I was twelve years old”相照应。
Once there was a rich man in a village, but he never gave anything to help others. Nobody liked him in the village. One day he said to them, “I know you don't like me. When I die, I __61__(give) everything to you. Then everyone will be happy.”

From then on, the rich man did all his best to help __70__ poor. Everyone began to like him. And he felt quite happy.
答案：61.will give 62.why 63.talking 64.nobody 65.with 66.them 67.while 68.generous 69.will
After shopping, Mother and I went to a restaurant for lunch. I notice Mother looking at a nearby table occupy by an elderly woman and young couple. They ate silently, and it was clearly that things were not going well. As we left, Mother stopped on their table. “Excuse me，” she said, put her arm around the unhappy old woman. “You remind me so many of my mother. May I hug you？” The woman smiled happily as she accepted to it. After we left, I said, “That was very nice of you, Mother. So I didn't think she looked like Grandma.” “Neither did me，” said Mother cheerfully.

There's a lot of talk in my class about whether the senior 3 students should spare the time to take part in the winter long run program. ________________________________________________________________________
There's_a_lot_of_talk_in_my_class_about_whether_the_senior_3_students_should_spare_the_time_to_take_part_in_the_winter_long_run_program. 60% of the students think it is a good idea, which can require us to take exercise every day. Besides running, we can do many sports such as morning exercises, playing ping－pong ball and playing basketball, but it shouldn't take up too much time. Exercise builds one's body and reduces diseases. Sports let their brains have a rest so that their revision will be more effective.
On the other hand, 30% of the students believe taking exercise is a waste of time and tiring. After having sports, they are much too excited for a long time to pay attention to their lessons. It's also possible to be hurt in sports.
As far as I'm concerned, I think it is necessary for us to take some exercise. After some exercise, we can feel more refreshed and relaxed，which can help us learn better.
