Dear Li Jun，
Last night I saw a TV documentary about the 1976 Tangshan earth quake in China. I noticed one thing that is common with most natural disasters. The killer disasters come either early in the morning or late at night, when people are either resting or preparing to rest and, unfortunately, when people are least attentive to warning signs.
The Tangshan disaster struck early in the morning when the people were still sleeping.
Many people died in their sleep. Miners were trapped deep below the earth. Some died. Survivors waited in the dark. They hoped that rescuers would come and pull them out. It is a horrible thing to be in a situation where you can do nothing to save yourself.
It seems that, Mather Nature has always attacked us as if she were afraid that we would fight back. Otherwise why would she come only as a thief? I have a story to tell you, This one happened in August 1986 in the villages near Lake Nyos in Cameroons northwest province. Large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2)gas had been collecting at the bottom of the lake. It was clear that nobody knew about the gas or about how dangerous it was. Suddenly, before dawn on August 26, 1986, a large quantity of gas was released (gave off) from the lake. CO2 is heavier than air, so it spread out over the nearby villages. The blanket of CO2 floated for 25 kilometres. Many people died in their sleep from lack of oxygen(O2). Before sunrise, more than 1, 700 people had lost their lives. And thousands of animals were also killed by the gas. At first scientists believed that the gas was caused by an earthquake or a volcano. However, further studies proved that there had been no volcanic activity. Nobody is very certain how such a large amount of gas was released from the lake. Scientists from the USA, the EU, Japan and Cameroon have been studying the lake for the past twenty years. Yet they still have not found an answer.
Well, Jun, let me leave Mother Nature and her timid(胆小的) way of attacking us. I need to
run out for some noodles at a nearby Chinese restaurant.
Take good care of yourself.
27. What were most people doing when the Tangshan earthquake happened?
A. They were sleeping B. They were watching TV.
C. They were preparing to rest. D. They were mining below the earth
28. What caused so many people to die near Lake Nyos?
A. A thief. B. A large quantity of poisonous gas
C. A lack of oxygen D. A thick cloud in the sky
29. Which of the following sentences is true according to the passagc?
A. No Animals were killed by the gas near Lake Nyos
B. Mother Nature was afraid that people would fight back
C. People seem to be more attentive to signs of disasters in the daytime.
D. Scientists have been studying the Tangshan earthquake for the past twenty years.
30. What does the underlined sentence mean at the end of the letter?

Rome, Paris and New York are the world's top fashion cities, all of which have produced some of the top trends, from fashionable skirts to the hottest new shoes. But have you ever wondered about the negative ideas that they have enforced?
In April 2016, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in Britain banned an ad from
Gucci that featured models dancing around and having fun, because thay were all extremely skinny. Banning ads due to the models' extreme figures isn't new. The ASA banned an ad in 2015 for the same reason. In France, it has been ruled that models are to provide a doctor's note providing that they are at a healthy weight.
So what is the healthy weight for models? Twenty years ago, the average fashion model weighed 8% less than the average woman. Today, they weigh 23 less.
People may think that being at an unhealthy weight will help them gain the benefits that the models do. This provides a standard of beauty, and therefore people who want to achieve those things may attempt to obtain them through unhealthy ways. People may think that they are overweight, due to the images of models' thin figures. They see something wrong with their bodies，whether they are overweight or not. This is a key factor in a lowered body image, low self-es-teem, depression and possibly even eating disorders.
Im not blaming the fashion industry by any means It's not their fault that many people look up to the models and expect to live a life like theirs. I am glad that the ASA is raising its voices when discussing the growing issue of body images in the fashion industry. By banning photos and videos, speaking out against them and pushing for doctor's notes from the models, it's pushing for the ideas that the traditional fashion industry's body image demands should be changed and something more needs to be questioned.
31.According to the text, why was one of Gucci's ads banned?
A. Because the models didn t act according to the rule
B. Because its models are much too thin.
C. Because none of its models had a doctor's note
D. Because its models were dancing in an unhealthy way
32. We can infer from the numbers mentioned in Paragraph 3 that________
A. models are becoming thinner with time going by
B. many women are on a diet to become models
C. people dont know why models weigh less
D. the healthy weight for models hasn't been decided
33. What does the fourth paragraph mainly show?
A. The changes in the standard of beauty
B. The benefits of becoming thin figures.
C. people's attitudes towards models' images
D, The negative effects of models' images
34.The possible purpose of the ASA's measures 15 to__________
A. change the future models are faced with
B. criticize the traditional standards for models
C. set up new standards of models' body images
D encourage more people to livc a life like models
35. What is the author's tone of writing this passage?
A Critical. B Humorous. C. Hopeful. D. Objective
Ways to build strong friendships

37 When you say you'll do something, do it. When your friend tells you a secret, keep it secret from others, Be someone that people know that they can rely on. If you show this quality to your friends, they will appreciate it and will be reliable in return.
Be a good listener. Many people think they have to appear very interesting. 38_ Listen
carcfully to what people say, remember important details about them, ask questions about their interests, and take the time to learn more about them.
Stress your good qualities. Show others what makes you stand apart from the crowd. Talk bout your interests and hobbies. Everyone has interesting stories to tell -don't be afraid to share yours. 39 People love to be around someone who makes them laugh.
Choose your friends wisely. As you make friends with more people, you may find that some are hard to get along with.

In Monday afternoon, we had an very exciting basketball match with Class 2. I had thought that our team was consisted of strong and able players, while the opposite team was no match for us. However, when the match started, I was surprised to find that every member of the other team was fighting hardly, despite the fact they were far less capable than us. It came as no surprise that we become the winner in the match. And they won our respect for their performance in the game. The result of the match have taught me that, whatever the outcome is what matters is that we have tried their best. Only in this way can we make rapid progresses in life

Welcome to Guide Dogs Training Center, boys and girls!First le me tell you something about guide dogs.
In 1918 a doctor and his pet dog walked with a soldier who was blind.The doctor went in the hospital for a short time. When he came out, he saw his pet had guided the soldier on the other side of the hospital yard safely. So he taught the dog to guide a person and it worked out well. Germany helped start a program to teach dogs to be guides.
Dorothy, an American woman, went to Germany to find out more about the guide dogs. When she came back to the United States, she wrote about it in a magazine. Soon more people knew about the guide dogs.
The best dogs for the job are clever and fit. It takes more than two years to train a little dog to be a guide dog. When the dog is 14 months old, it learns many instructions. Then the owner and the dog meet, and they practise for four weeks.
Have I made myself clear? OK, let’s go on visiting.
