Chinese New Year is approaching and preparations are underway around the world. Here are some Chinatowns for those outside of China wishing to mark the day.
Although it may not be as large or as long-built as others, having only become a center for the Chinese community during the 1950s, London’s Chinatown is a perfectly formed little firework that knows how to see in the year with a bang. Decorated with red lanterns (灯笼), previous years have seen shows with acrobatics (杂技), martial arts (武术), dance and opera nearby.
San Francisco’s Chinatown is perhaps the most famous in the United States. The city was the main entry-point for Chinese who had crossed the Pacific to the USA during the early 19th century. Between the Grant Avenue and the Stockton Street, this historic area is a local treasure, attracting more visitors per year than the Golden Gate Bridge.
With an about 100-year-old history, the Thai capital’s Chinatown contains complex streets offering all kinds of tasty treats, clothes, toys and antiques. Sunday market days are such a good time to get the full atmosphere of the neighborhood. The area is also known for its gold dealers, whose shops line the road.
Found in Port Louis, this Mauritian Chinatown shows the island nation’s rich multicultural diversity. Established in the early years of the 20th century by settlers from China, its tiny shops and restaurants serve locals and visitors. During the Chinese Spring Festival, the most exciting sight is the Dragon Dances on Rue Royale when Chinese musicians and dancers perform the traditional Lion dances through the streets.
21. According to the text, which of the following has the longest history?
A. London’s Chinatown. B. Bangkok’s Chinatown.
C. Mauritius’s Chinatown. D. San Francisco’s Chinatown.
22. What’s special about Bangkok’s Chinatown?
A. It is crowded with Chinese restaurants.
B. It was the major entrance for the Chinese.
C. It is well-known for its gold business.
D. It is where you can enjoy fireworks.
23. If you want to enjoy the Dragon Dances, you can go to ______.
A. Rue Royale in Port Louis, Mauritius.
B. the Sunday market in Bangkok.
C. the Grant Avenue in San Francisco.
D. the Chinese community in London.
Have you ever thought of quitting your job when you feel exhausted? Maybe most of you would say “yes”. After a particularly busy period at work, I decided to get away from it all by going on a hike in the mountains in southern France.
Before I left, I read an interesting story in a magazine. It read, “Once, while I was riding on a crowded bus, the man sitting next to me threw his cell phone out of the window when his phone rang. I was surprised. He looked at me, shrugged (耸耸肩) and looked away. I had no idea whether it was his or stolen or whether he even knew what a cell phone was or not, but he clearly wanted t o be free of it, because it clearly troubled him. ”
Billions of people across the world use cell phones. Though cell phones are a wonderful way for communication, they often do the exact opposite. Using cell phones can increase stress within families and friends.
So when I recently returned home, I got rid of my cell phone. Now I go outside without taking my phone with me. I’ve noticed things in my neighborhood I never noticed before, such as gardens. I’ve met new people, started conversations with neighbors I didn’t speak to before and talked with some of my friends face to face instead of chatting over the phone.
Instead of keeping me off from the world, stopping using my cell phone has helped me get even closer to my family and friends.
24. According to the story, the man on the bus threw away his cell phone because
A. it didn’t work properly B. it was stolen from someone else
C. he didn’t like the phone’s style D. he didn’t want to be bothered by it
25. We can learn from the passage that cell phones ______.
A. are too expensive for many people
B. are of no use to the author
C. can also get people into trouble
D. can make life more interesting
26. What can we learn about the author?
A. He wants to own a garden now.
B. He always chatted with his neighbors.
C. He used to take his cell phone when going outside.
D. He once threw away his cell phone.
27. The main purpose of the passage is to ______.
A. tell us not to let cell phones control our lives
B. encourage others to hike with him in France
C. share his experiences in France with us
D. teach us how to get along with neighbors
Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It has been regarded as the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Although it’s not an official holiday, millions of employers give their employees the day off, and many people use that day to get a jump-start on their holiday shopping. A similar day in Canada and Great Britain is called “Boxing Day”.
Black Friday has become somewhat of a marketing sensation in recent years. Since 2005, it has been the busiest shopping day of the year. To lure shoppers, retailers (零售商) routinely open their doors as early as 4 a.m. and offer special sales and promotions to the shoppers that arrive early. Some of the special deals offered by stores a re only available in limited quantities. That is why some shoppers intent on getting the best deals often camp out in front of stores overnight so that they’ll be the first in line when the doors open.
But why Black Friday? Historians believe the name started in Philadelphia in the mid-1960s. Bus drivers and police used “Black Friday” to describe the heavy traffic that would block city streets the day after Thanksgiving as shoppers headed to the stores.
Businesses, however, didn’t like the negative tone associated wi th the “Black Friday” name. In the early 1980s, a more positive explanation of the name began to circulate. According to this alternative explanation, Black Friday is the day when retailers finally begin to turn a profit for the year. In accounting terms (会计行业), operating at a loss is called being “in the red” because accountants traditionally used red ink to show negative amounts. Positive amounts were usually shown in black ink. Thus, being “in the black” is a good thing because it means stores are operating at a profit.
Recently, for those who are too busy to shop on Black Friday or who just don’t want to fight the crowds, the Monday following Black Friday has become known as Cyber Monday (网络星期一) for the many online deals.
28. On Black Friday, the Americans ______.
A. don’t have to go to work as usual
B. look exactly like the Canadians
C. are usually busy doing shopping
D. stay at home and relax themselves
29. The underlined word “lure” (in Paragraph 2) probably means ______.
A. protect B. attract
C. persuade D. remind
30. How do the retailers understand Black Friday?
A. It is totally different from Boxing Day.
B. They usually lose some money on the day.
C. It never keeps them very busy.
D. It probably brings them more money.
31. The author writes this passage in order to _____.
A. state the development of Cyber Monday
B. tell the difference between red and black
C. introduce Black Friday to the readers
D. explain the meaning of Boxing Day
Is going on holiday of any benefit? New research shows that going on holiday makes you not only feel good while you’re there but also gain the health benefits for months.
Jetting off to destinations such as the Maldives cuts your blood pressure, helps you sleep better and bounce back from stress. The benefits last at least a fortnight longer than the vacation and can be felt for months in some cases where it is claimed. Experts say workers should always take their holiday entitlement (权利) each year, but as many as one in three don’t.
The study compared key health markers in holidaymakers visiting Thailand, Peru or the Maldives, with those in people who stayed at home and continued working. The average blood pressure of those on holiday dropped by six percent while the workers saw their blood pressure rise by two percent over the same period. The sleep quality of holidaymakers improved by 17 percent while that of the non-holidaymakers deteriorated by 14 percent.
The study also found the ability of vacationers to recover from stress, known as the stress-resilience test, improved by 29 percent. There was a 71 percent fall in stress-r esilience scores among workers. Tests showed fallen blood glucose (葡萄糖) levels, reduced risk of diabetes (糖尿病), trimmer waistlines and improved mood and energy levels, with the effects sustained for at least two weeks after returning home.
The Holiday Health Experiment was conducted by tour operator Kuoni and Nuffield Health, the UK’s largest healthcare charity.

Boosting your Brain Power
Who hasn’t wished that they were just a little smarter? Maybe you’re in school and just want to get a better grade on a test. 36 Here are some ways you can go about boosting your brainpower.
Sleep is one of the easiest things to do, yet one of the ones that most of us don’t do. We live in a busy age and often it seems that we don’t have enough time to get everything done. So many of us sacrifice our hours of sleep to accomplish our daily tasks. 37
Read a book. Being smarter is not only about thinking but knowledge plays a big part in it, too. Reading helps your brain stay active. 38 Think of it as exercise for the brain.
Try turning off that television set and going for a walk. A walk will stimulate your body and relax your mind. Just as watching too much TV can hurt your body, it also causes your brain to slow down as well.
39 There is a big difference between knowing something and being able to teach it to someone else. There is nothing like trying to break something down into simpler terms for others to help you understand it better than you did before.
Work on a puzzle. It can be anything from the newspaper crossword or the new Sudoku puzzle. Puzzles help you use your brain to figure out the answers. 40 Your brain needs exercise just like your body does to be able to function in top form.
So go out there and boost your brainpower, your mind will thank you.
A. Learn something new and then teach someone else how to do it.
B. By writing about things you know, it helps you to understand them better.
C. Crossword puzzles also have the added benefit of increasing your vocabulary and knowledge.
D. Maybe you want to show your boss that you are good enough to get a promotion.
E. Giving your body the rest it needs every night can boost your ability to function at your best the next day.
F. Skipping meals can make it harder for you to think and perform at your best.
G. The more you read, the more you know, and the smarter you will be..
Do you have a dream? Is it part of your life? Everybody has dreams. I have a 41 , too. When I slept, I would dream of living it; when I 42 , I would work for living it.
One day, somebody told me, “To 43 is better than to arrive.” Hearing this, I 44 laughed it off, not quite understanding how that was even 45 . And I didn’t realize how true it was 46 I had what I wanted. Then I suddenly realized that the person living the dream was different from the one who had 47 for it. Since then, I have made a great 48 to work for the realization of my dream. 49 , I achieved what I had wanted. I have now become a wiser, calmer, stronger and more passionate person.
The journey has 50 me a lot. I made mistakes and learned from them. I 51 and learned to get up again. I cried and I learned to wipe away my tears. I made friends and learned to 52 people. I made enemies and learned to value 53 . The journey has transformed a caterpillar (毛虫) into a beautiful butterfly, eagerly waiting to 54 the world with her newly-found wings.
We all know that our 55 isn’t as perfect as it is in the fairy tales. It 56 great ambition and courage to fulfill our dreams. But we should remember that even if 57 gets in our way, nothing will 58 us.
So friends, always remember: “ Experience is the best 59 and there are no guarantees that one will become an artist. Only the 60 matters.” So let’s drink to a new journey. Cheers!

The relationship between parents and children has always been a hot topic. Many students may feel 61 (stress) because of their parents. Most parents have good intentions, 62 some of them aren’t very helpful with the problems their sons and daughters have in 63 (adjust) to college, and a few of them seem to go out of their way to add to their children’s 64 (difficulty).
For one thing, parents are often not aware of the kinds of problems their children face. They don’t realize that the 65 (compete) is stronger, that the required standards of work are 66 (high), and that their children may not be prepared for 67 change. They may be upset by their children’s poor g rades. At their kindest, they may 68 (gentle) ask why John or Mary isn’t doing better, whether he or she is trying as hard as he or she could, and so on. At their worst, they may threaten 69 (take) their children out of college or cut off living expenses.
Sometimes parents think it right and natural that they determine 70 their children should do with their lives. They forget that everyone is different and that each person must develop in his or her own way.
Life is always full of something that you can not expect. Bob is very sorry to have missed the first two lesson this morning. He got up early as usually in the morning, but when he was ready to leave he find his bicycle’s front tyre (轮胎) flat. He wanted to take taxi to school, and he didn’t have any money on him. He had to look for a place along the street to get his bicycle repairing. Unluckily, there were not any bicycle repair shops was open in the early morning. So he had to walk to school, carrying his bicycle all the way. That was the reason how he was late for school. He told Mr. White not to worry with his lessons, for he would make up for it and turn to his teachers for help if necessary.

I’m glad to receive your letter, and thank you for your caring for the weather and my health. Now I’d like to tell you something about the haze.
Since the end of last year, the hazy weather has occurred a lot of times in my hometown, which has done great harm to our daily life. Many traffic accidents happened just because of the heavy smog. Besides, more and more citizens have to go to see the doctor due to the serious diseases caused by the haze. A great number of people have to stay at home for fear of the poisonous air.
As for me, I will go to school by bike or on foot, and I won’t throw the waste anywhere. In addition, I will tell the people I meet to protect the environment. Would you like to tell me some good ideas? I’m looking forward to your reply.
