Zheng Aiqiang, a “memory athlete” on TV show Super Brain, can remember 2,660 numbers in just one hour!You would think people like this have special brains. But according to a recent study by researchers from the US and the Netherlands, the brain structures of ordinary people and 23 of the world’s leading memory athletes show no difference.That’s because good memories can be trained. New research in the journal Neuron(神经元期刊) suggests that you can become a super memorizer with just six weeks of hard training.Researchers found that technique(技巧) called loci, invented by ancient Greeks, can greatly help improve memory. By using loci, you are using your imagination to improve the brain’s memory networks. You can link(关联) something you need to remember with a place that you know very well. For example, to remember a list of numbers, imagine yourself walking through your house. Each thing is linked to a number. For example, zero could be handle(把手) on the door and five could be the painting on the wall.In one study, some ordinary people were given 20 minutes to remember 72 words. First they could only remember 26 of them. But when they were taught loci, they could remember 62 words.“Not everyone can become a memory champion. But everyone using the technique can improve a lot from the level they’re at,” said Boris Konrad, one of the researchers in the study.21.According to the study, ________.a. memory athletes have special brainsb. ordinary people and memory athletes have similar brain structuresc. hard training can make a person a super memorizerd. the ancient Greeks had the most powerful memory at that timeA. ab B. cd C. bc D. ac22. When using loci to remember something, you link the thing with a _______.A. number B. place C. name D. painting23. Which of the following about the study is NOT true? ________.A. People were given 20 minutes to remember the 72 words.B. They could remember 26 words in their own way.C. They could remember all the words by using loci.D. Loci helped them remember 36 more words. (B)Many people tend to complain about not having good friends in their lives. Sadly, they seem to think that their own company is not enough to make them happy. Nothing could be further from the truth though. In order to get along with others, the first thing you need to do is learn to get along with yourself. Only in this way will you succeed in developing healthy, solid relationships with others. Listen to your inner voice. Remember that inner voice that keeps whispering to you what you really want and need as well as what you do not really want and need. It is about time you started listening to it. In order to get to know yourself in depth, it is important to learn and accept what you want and what you do not want. Learn to enjoy your own company. You will be surprised to find out how many things you can do by yourself and actually have fun in the process. Reading romantic novels, poetry or science fiction is only a few of the things that you can do by yourself, which not only can offer you hours of enjoyment, but also the chance to get to know yourself better. Satisfy yourself. Pay special attention to your personal hygiene(卫生). Do your hair and nails often and experiment with new styles. Follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly to stay in good shape. No matter how busy your daily schedule is, always find at least an hour per day for yourself, when you can either relax doing absolutely nothing, or doing something that you enjoy most. Learn to respect your own boundaries. Find out what your boundaries are and learn to respect them. You are the only one who knows what you can accept and what you cannot.24. If you want to have a good relationship with others, you should first _____. A. get into the habit of living alone B. learn to be your own best friend C. always tell the truth D. make many friends in society25. What is the purpose of listening to your inner voice? _______ A. To keep a good state of mind. B. To know more about yourself. C. To enjoy the time by yourself. D. To form a relationship with others.26. In order to please yourself, the writer gives some suggestions EXCEPT _______. A. eating healthily B. exercise regularly C. experimenting with new hair style D. keeping on cleaning the house27. What is the structure of the passage? CChina is known as a state of manners and ceremony. Many proverbs have been passed down from generation to generation such as “polite behavior costs nothing” or “showing respect each other” and so on. For instance, there is an interesting short story. Once upon a time, a man went on a long tour to visit his friend with a swan as a gift. But it escaped from the cage on the way. Though he tried hard, he got hold of nothing but a feather. Instead of returning home, he continued his journey with the swan feather. When his friend received this unexpected gift, he was deeply moved. And the saying “The gift is nothing much, but it’s the thought that counts.” was spread far and wide. Chinese used to cup one hand in the other before the chest as a greeting. This tradition has a history of more than 2, 000 years and nowadays it is seldom used except in the Spring Festival. And shaking hands is more popular. Bowing, as to show respect to the higher level, is often used by the lower like subordinates(下级), students, and attendants. But at present Chinese youngsters prefer to simply nod as a greeting. When you start a talk with a stranger, the topics such as weather, food, or hobbies may be good choices to break the ice. For a man, a chat about sports, stock market or his job can usually go on smoothly. Similar to Western customs, you should be careful to ask a woman private questions. However, relaxing talks about her job or family life will never put you into danger. Though Chinese are said to be implicit(含蓄的), they are actually humorous enough to be pleased about the jokes of Americans.28. What’s the purpose of telling a story about sending a swan feather? A. To make you pleased. B. To tell us that many proverbs have been passed down in China. C. To introduce the next paragraph. D. To give us an example about Chinese interesting story.29. What does the underlined word “counts” mean in the first paragraph? _______ . A. Figures out. B. Comes to. C. Means a lot. D. Calculates. 30. In Paragraph 2, the author mainly wants to introduce _______. A. the Chinese body language B. the way the lower show respect to the higher C. the traditional Chinese manners D. the development of Chinese manners31. The passage is mainly about ________.A. Chinese proverbs B. Chinese humor C. Chinese manners D. Chinese body languagesDThere is a common belief among parents that schools are no longer interested in spelling. No school I have taught in has ever considered spelling unimportant as a basic skill. There are, however, quite different ideas about how to teach it, or how much priority(优先) it must be given over general language development and writing ability. The problem is, how to encourage a child to express himself freely in writing without holding him back with spelling.If spelling becomes the only point of his teacher’s interest, clearly a bright child will be likely to “play safe”. He will write only words within his spelling range(范围). That’s why teachers often encourage the early use of dictionaries and pay attention to content rather than technical ability.I was once shocked to read on the bottom of a sensitive piece of writing about a personal experience: “This work is terrible! There are far too many spelling mistakes.” It may have been a sharp criticism(批评) of the pupils technical abilities in writing, but it was also a sad thing for the teacher who had omitted to read the composition, which contained some beautiful expressions of the child’s deep feelings. The teacher was not wrong to draw attention to the mistakes, but if his priority had centered on the child’s ideas, an expression of his disappointment with the presentation would have given the pupil more hope to seek improvement.32. The expression “play safe” probably means _______. A. to write carefully B. to do as teachers say C. to use dictionaries frequently D. to avoid using words one is not sure of33. Teachers encourage the use of dictionaries so that ________.A. students will be able to express their ideas more freelyB. teachers will have less trouble in correcting mistakes C. students will have more trust in writing D. students will learn to spell words correctly34. The writer seems to think that the teacher’s judgment on that sensitive piece of writing is _______. A. reasonable B. unfair C. foolish D. careless35. The major point discussed in the passage is _______.A. the importance of developing writing skillsB. the importance of spellingC. the correct way of marking compositionD. the relationship between spelling and the content of a composition第二节(共5小题，每小题2分，满分10分) 根据短文内容，从短文中的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。When we are little, we know nothing about the rights and responsibilities of adulthood. 36 Thus, if we like a certain toy or if we want to eat a certain type of chocolate, we think that our parents will have to buy that for us. We don’t care that they possibly have not enough money for that. If they don’t carry out our wish, we’ll begin to cry. 37 Whenever we begin to cry, we’ll get what we want.Still, little by little, we realize that our parents can’t offer us all that we want for certain reasons. We then also understand that parents have their rights. They have the right to scold us when we do something wrong or when they find out that we have lied to them. 38 They choose our clothes, the food we eat, the school we will study at, the hours when we should go out to play and the time we have to return home. 39 They are the ones to blame later if we don’t receive proper education. That’s why when we beat a classmate at the kindergarten, parents are the ones to apologize for our deeds in front of the teacher and the classmate’s parents. And when we get ill, they are responsible for not taking good care of us and for dressing us inadequately.The moment we become teenagers, we notice that we should be responsible for the society. Now we have the right to be independent. 40 It is supposed that we are mature enough to solve our problems and to make people around trust us. For some of us, this is a difficult test to pass, but it is the best method to see if we are capable of taking our place in society.A. We think our parents should offer us all we need.B. We should believe we can do them by ourselves.C. This is a child’s important weapon to threaten his/her parents.D. Moreover, they have the right to make choices for us when we are little.E. As a matter of fact, parents have a lot of things to be concerned about.F. But at the same time they are responsible for many things that happen to us. G. However, it’s also time for us to give explanations when we do something wrong. 第三部分：英语知识运用（共两节，满分45分）第一节 完形填空（共20小题；每小题1.5分，满分30分）阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和D）中选出可以填入空白处的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。Around twenty years ago I was living in Seattle and going through hard times.

See you later.Text 10M: Good morning. everyone, I am Professor Smith, and I am your laboratory instructor. This class is intended as a necessary part of the course, which Dr James will be in charge of. This class will meet twice a week in this laboratory. It begins at nine. First I expect you to be on time. I do not intend to wait for latecomers or repeat what has already been covered if you miss the explanation. Do not arrive late and interrupt your neighbor; you may as well not come if you can't be on time.Attendance is equally important. If you miss three lab classes, your name will be moved away from the class list, I'm afraid. No excuses. You can't complete the course without completing lab class.Safety is key here. It is very important to keep things neat and clean, dress properly, and be careful. You cannot eat, drink or smoke in the laboratory and you should always clean the table top and wash your hands before and after the class. Long hair must be tied up. Large clothing must be worn. And, finally, any laboratory accident must be reported immediately.1 hope you'll enjoy the laboratory It's a wonderful place but all these instructions are to be strictly followed. We will begin today by learning about the microscope.
