Terry Fox was only seventeen when he got a cancer(癌症). He must have felt hopeless when the doctor said his right leg would have to be cut off 6 inches above the knee.
But to everyone’s surprise, Terry Fox made up his mind to become a long-distance runner and do something about the cancer.What a dream!

Day by day, people began to realize that something big was happening on the lonely road. As people saw Terry, they stopped and donated (捐赠) money for cancer research.
However, his health took a rapid turn for the worse several months later. He had to give up his marathon on September 1, 1980. Terry died three months later, at the age of 22. In his short life, he raised $24 million for cancer research—one dollar for each person in his motherland.
Since his death, the yearly Terry Fox Run, first held in 1981, has grown to be the world’s largest one-day fundraiser(筹资活动) for cancer research.

In the eyes of many foreigners, Chinese are the best hosts and the worst guests in the world. And western hosts sometimes look rude(粗鲁的) in the eyes of Chinese guests.It is because the guest-host relationship in China is quite different from that in some western countries.
In China, guests are almost like gods. Whenever I enter a Chinese friend’s home, there is always fruit on the table for me, and someoneis quick to bring me a cup of tea or water. In the west, generally the guest is not a god. Acting according to the host’s way of doing things is usual behavior for a guest.
My wife’s mother, a very kind Chinese lady, doesn’t smoke. When I see some of her guests smoking in her house, as a non-smoker, I feel unhappy. Usually, I want to stop them directly, but I must realize that in China, to be a good host, she must not do that.
In most North American homes, if you are a guest, and the hosts are not smokers, you should not smoke in their house. At the very least, you should ask, “Is it OK if I smoke?” But don’t be surprised if they say, “No, you can’t smoke.” In my culture, if you smoke in their house, you are a bad guest, but if they
don’t allow you to smoke in their house, they are not rude hosts.
In a word, no matter where you are, the best way to be a good guest is to adapt to(适应)the habits of your hosts.
28. When a western guest visits a Chinese family, he often ________.
A. buys some fruit
B. brings a cup of tea
D. feels like a god
29.What will the writer probably sayif a guest wants to smoke in his house?
A. Le t’s smoke together.

C. Smoking is a bad habit.
D. It’s OK if you smoke here.
30. What can be learned from the passage?
A. A friend in need is a friend indeed.
B. Where there is a will, there is a way.
C. When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
D. Actions speak louder than words.
31. What is the best title of the passage?
A.The Best Hosts

What does it take to graduate from university? Some papers or high scores in exams? Well, these are not enough if you are a student at Tsinghua University.
According to a new rule of the university, students must prove(证明) themselves in the swimming pool. They need to pass a swimming test of at least 50 meters, and those who fail the test will be required to take a swimming course throughout their school years. By the time they graduate, they will have known how to swim; otherwise they can’t graduate with their bachelor’s degrees(学士学位).
The news made waves in Chinese social media(媒体). Some people praised the university for requiring a necessary skill that can save lives, and they also believed that the rule would help improve students’health. However, others questioned if it was f air to expect those who come from inland cities(内陆城市) to be able to swim.
In fact, this is not a new rule. Tsinghua University first made swimming a requirement in 1919 but later gave itup because the number of students became too large and there were not enough swimming pools in the school for them to learn swimming.
Anyway, it is still good news that Chinese students’ health has become more and more valued. Why not just take this chance to learn one more life-saving ability?
32. According to the passage, what does it take for a student to graduatefrom Tsinghua university?

①Because many students failed the swimming test.
② Because some people disagreed with the rule.
③ Because there were too many students.
④Because there werenot enough swimming pools.
35. What is the passage mainly about?
A.Different people hold different opinions about a new rule.
B.Tsinghua University has made a new rule ofgraduation.
C. Chinese s tudents’ health should be more and more valued.
D. There is a new chance to learn another life-saving ability.

As we know, kites were invented in China. In the beginning, they were made of wood and bamboo. People used them to pass messages. Later, people flew kites to keep away from bad luck. Today, the custom is still alive and there are traditional patterns on some kites.
Modern kites have different shapes and patterns. One of the largest kites in the world is about 1,500 square meters. It is as big as three basketball courts.
Kite flying is an enjoyable sight in the sky. In China, the best time to enjoy colorful kites is during the Weifang International Kite Festival in April. The festival has competitions for kite- flying skills and new styles of kites.
Kite flying is also a healthy sport. It is good for your neck and eyes.
