“When can I get a cell phone?” The answer is when your parents think you need one, though many kids seem to be getting them around age 12 or 13. Some younger kids may
have them because their parents see it as a matter of safety and convenience. For example, a kid can call mom and dad when sports practice is over. And a cell phone can give kids almost instant access（快捷通道） to their parents if something goes wrong or they need help. It can give parents quick access to their kids so they can check on them and make sure they’re OK.
If you do get a cell phone, make some rules with your parents, such as how many minutes you’re allowed to spend on the phone, when you can use your phone, when the phone must be turned off, and what you will do if someone calls you too often, and so on.
You’ll also have to learn to take care of the phone in your life. Keep it charged（充电） and store it in the safe place so it doesn’t get lost. And whatever you do, don’t use it in the bathroom. I know someone who dropped her phone in the toilet!

America is a mobile society. Friendships between Americans can be close and real, yet disappear soon if situations change. Neither side feels hurt by this. Both may swap Christmas greetings for a year or two, perhaps a few letters for a while — then no more. If the same two people meet again by chance, even years later, they pick up the friendship. This can be quite difficult for us Chinese to understand, because friendships between us develop more slowly but then may become lifelong feelings, extending (延伸) sometimes deeply into both families.
Americans are ready to receive us foreigners at their homes, share their holidays, and their home life. They will enjoy welcoming us and be pleased if we accept their hospitality (好客) easily.
Another difficult point for us Chinese to understand Americans is that although they include us warmly in their personal everyday lives, they don’t show their politeness to us if it requires a great deal of time. This is not usual in our country where we may be generous with our time. Sometimes, we, as hosts, will appear at airports even in the middle of the night to meet a friend. We may take days off to act as g uides to our foreign friends. The Americans, however, express their welcome usually at homes, but truly can not manage the time to do a great deal with a visitor outside their daily routine(常规). They will probably expect us to get ourselves from the airport to our own hotel by bus. And they expect that we will phone them from there. Once we arrive at their homes, the welcome will be full, warm and real. We will find ourselves treated hospitably.
For the Americans, it is often considered more friendly to invite a friend to their homes than to go to restaurants, except for purely business matters. So accept their hospitality at home!
46. The writer of this passage must be ______.
A. an American B. a Chinese C. a professor D. a student
47. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage?
A. Friendships between Americans usually extend deeply into their families.

D. Americans will continue their friendships again even after a long break.

A. warmly welcomed at the airport
B. offered a ride to his home
C. treated hospitably at his home
D. treated to dinner in a restaurant
49. The underlined words “generous with our time” in Paragraph 3 probably mean ______.
A. strict with time B. serious with time
C. careful with time D. willing to spend time
50. A suitable title for this passage would probably be “______”.
A. Friendships between Chinese B. Friendships between Americans

Nowadays,college professors may get greater respect than the skilled factory workers.The leader in business or industry may get a higher social position in the community than the common laborer（劳动者）.He may take pains to point out that his father started life as a farmer or laborer of some sort because it is work done with any of the muscles（肌肉）and bones（骨骼）of the body. We call it physical labor or manual labor. Although nearly any work needs skill and intelligence,many jobs that mostly contain manual labor——such as fruit and vegetable picking,shelf stocking,manual digging——often may be done successfully by unskilled or semiskilled workers.Based on economic and social conflict（冲突）of interest,people may often distort（曲解）that manual labor doesn’t need any skill,and is always with low social class.
But there is a characteristic of American culture that has become almost a tradition.It is to respect the self-made man——the man who has risen to the top through his own efforts,usually beginning by working with his hands.
This view toward manual labor is now still seen in many aspects of American life.One is invited to dinner at a home where there is not only comfortable but even luxurious（豪华的）furniture.In that home,everything shows the fact that the family has been able to afford foreign travel,expensive hobbies,and college education for the children.But the hostess probably will cook the dinner herself,will serve it herself and will wash dishes afterwards.Furthermore the dinner will not consist（包括）only of something quickly and easily got from contents of various cans and a cake or her special dishes.It’s also common to see the following: A professional man may talk about washing the car,digging in his flowerbeds,painting the house.His wife may even help with these things,just as he often helps her with the dish washing. A young man who is always at college may wait on table and wash dishes for his living,or during the summer vacation he may work with a construction gang on a highway in order to pay for his education.
51.From Paragraph 1 we can know that______.
A.manual labor is done by unskilled workers
B.college professors win great respect from common workers
C.manual labor gets low social class because of being distorted
D.a leader may feel proud to mention this fathers as a physical laborer
52.According to the passage,the hostess cooks dinner herself mainly because______.
A.it is easy to prepare a meal
B.she takes pride in what she can do herself
C.it’s hard to get someone to help her in America
D.she can hardly afford a person to work in her house
53.The expression”wait on table”in the last paragraph means”_________”.
A.wait to lay the table B.keep accounts for a club
C.work in a furnitu re shop D.serve customers in a restaurant

Thanksgiving is an American festival.It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.It is a time for a special dinner 65 （在……之中）family and friends.People make short 66 （演讲）and give thanks for their food.
We have celebrated the festival since the first 67 （开拓者）from England arrived in America by ship in the seventeenth century.Under 68 （讨论，商讨）,the local people,the Native Americans,taught the pioneers how to grow 69 （谷物）.The 70 （接下来的）year they celebrated together by eating dinner of the new food.We still celebrate Thanksgiving today with a traditional dinner.The kitchen is always the most crowded room in our house because we all help prepare the food.We 71 （摆放）the table,and then before we begin dinner,my father gives thanks for all 72 （种类）of food,so we remember why we celebrate the festival.When it is all over,everyone helps wash the 73 （盘，碟）.
Like many America ns,we usually watch the games on television and enjoy 74 （我们自己）very much.

My teenage life is colorful.During the school year,not only do I have happy times,but I have many kinds of problems.My biggest problem is that I have too much homework.Homework seems endless.It always makes me stay up late and I feel very tired every day,but I know the teachers are expecting us to be better.
How can I deal with the problem?On one hand,I should concentrate more on my study in class.On the other hand,I should do the homework as quickly as possible.Now,I spend less time on my homework,and I am not frustrated any more.
As we all know,practice makes perfect.Complaining or waiting can’t help.Instead,we should be active to face our problems.
