With increasing competition in education, some of the best universities worldwide are having a global view to best prepare their students for the future.
China has been determined to play its key role on the global educational stage. Take Project 211, a program created in 1995 to bring 100 Chinese universities up to a world-class standard. Similarly, in 1999 Project 985 got started to produce more top universities. To further improve the global position of Chinese education, in 2009 the C9 League was also created, hoping to be an eastern equal to the US Ivy League(常春藤联盟）.
Germany offers a menu of educational choice from smaller but high-quality institutions to some most famous universities in Western Europe. Similarly, the country serves up plenty of cultural experiences from the lively capital streets to the characteristic towns and villages. Germany also creates many scholarships to help international students afford their tuition fees(学费).
Italy has some of the world’s most respected learning institutes including the University of Bologna, believed to be the world’s oldest university. There are more UNESCO World Heritage(遗产）Sites in Italy than in any other nation in the world. These attractions, alongside Italy’s world-famous food and endless culture make it among the world's most visited countries each year.

It’s nothing unusual for people to multitask nowadays. But the ability to do a number of things at the same time could be different between the two sexes.
A team of UK researchers recently compared the performances of 120 women and 120 men in a computer test about switching(转换) between tasks of counting and shape recognition.
Men equalled women when tasks were done one at a time. But when the tasks were mixed up, there was a clear difference. According to the paper published in the journal BMC Psychology, both women and men slowed down and made more mistakes as the switching became more rapid. But men were slower, taking 77 percent longer to answer, while women took 69 percent longer.
To make the experiment more connected to day-to-day life, researchers tried a second test. A group of women and men were given eight minutes to complete a series of everyday tasks, such as finding restaurants on a map, doing simple math problems, answering a phone call, or deciding how they would search for a lost key in a field.
Once again, women performed better than men in the test, especially in the key-searching task.
Where do women get the ability to keep organized under pressure better than men? Researchers believe that it has its origins in evolution(进化). In ancient times, women had to keep an eye on children while cooking meals. Meanwhile, men only needed to focus on hunting.
However, as with all studies, the results don’t necessarily apply to every single person in the world. “We don’t mean that men can’t multitask, or that only women can,” researcher Keith Laws of the University of Hertfordshire, UK, told BBC News. “We are saying that the average woman is better able to organize her time and switch between tasks than the average man.”
54. In the tests, researchers found that ______.
A. women were better at switching between tasks than men
B. women made more mistakes than men when multitasking
C. men were better at counting and shape recognition than women
D. men completed a series of daily tasks more quickly than women
55. What is the main purpose of paragraph 6?
A. To give advice on how to improve the ability to multitask.
B. To show how men and women think and respond otherwise.
C. To compare the roles of men and women in human communities.
D. To explain why men and women perform differently in multitasking.
56. Which of the following would Keith Laws most probably agree with?
A. All women are born to be good at multitasking.
B. Some men are as good at multitasking as women.
C. Men shouldn’t do jobs that call for multitasking skills.
D. Every woman is better able to multitask than every man.
Eating out is such a pleasure ― the food, the wine, the joy of having it all brought to you by someone else ― that it’s a pity to ruin the experience by sharing it with other people.
Well, I do like visiting restaurants with friends. But dining out alone has its own very special attractions. For a start you can give all your attention to the food. There’s nothing worse than having to invent and deliver an opinion on school league tables or Sanchez’s move to Manchester United, plus listen to everyone else’s opinions, when all you really want to do is enjoy each mouthful along the way.
A second great thing about eating out alone is the chance to combine food with one of life’s other true pleasures: reading. You have to plan this carefully: Indian or Chinese restaurants are best ― you need food you can eat with just one hand, leaving the other free to hold your reading material.
But perhaps the biggest attraction of a table for one is the chance it gives to people-watching. Restaurants and the different reasons for visiting them ― first date, business meeting, night out with friends ― produce human behaviour of surprising richness and variety. Will the man selling his business idea get any joy out of his possible investor(投资者)? Will the married couple think of anything to say to each other before their main courses arrive?
This “human zoo” part of eating out alone is one of the reasons I’d hate to be famous: everyone would be watching you, so you wouldn’t be able to watch them. The snooker player Steve Davis says this was one of the strangest consequences(后果) of becoming well-known: he got very worried about his eating in public, almost to the level of doubting whether he was “doing it right.”
So next time you’re considering your eating out choices, remember the advice of the businessman Nubar Gulbenkian: “The best number for a dinner party is two ― myself and a super head waiter.”

59. What does the author intend to tell us in paragraph 5?

B. Famous people are always the center of attention.
C. Being famous may ruin the joy of eating out alone.

60. What is suggested at the end of the text?

Being able to find high quality health care at an affordable price is a problem to be solved in many countries. In the United States, Walmart, a large chain store, is trying to help. It is offering something new to its employees: cutting the cost of a doctor's appointment to only $4 instead of the usual $40 for the same service.
The catch is that the patient and doctor must meet over the internet. This online service is called "telemedicine."
Walmart is the latest major business in the United States to push its workers toward a high-tech way to be examined and treated by doctors. Thanks to telemedicine, people can talk with medical experts from the privacy of their own homes, often using a secure video connection.
Supporters say online visits make it easier for patients to see an expert or quickly find help for problems considered non-emergencies.
Some healthcare needs are well-suited for telemedicine. It can help people seeking treatment for insect bites or skin conditions. Patients who have had medical treatments and cannot move around easily can use telemedicine for their follow-up visits. Also, people seeking help for mental health issues can benefit from the privacy that telemedicine gives.
But still, many people do not use telemedicine, they continue to go to the doctor's office when they are sick. 80 percent of middle-size and large U.S. companies offered telemedicine services to their workers in 2018. However, only 8 percent of its employees used telemedicine at least once in 2017.
Compared with seeing a real doctor in person, some people may think the quality of telemedicine is not as good. Parents, for example, may feel they are not giving their child the best care if they use a virtual doctor appointment. Older adults may look forward to their in-person doctor appointments. For them, going to the doctor's office is a big event, something they look forward to.
Another reason some adults may not use telemedicine services is trust. Tom Hill, aged 66, says he has no plans to ever use telemedicine. He does not buy anything online, let alone do something as personal as seeing a doctor. He says, for him, it is important to look his doctor in the eye and shake hands.
However, for some people, especially young people and busy students, telemedicine might be a good choice. It can cut down on the time away from work. It can also cut down on the cost of doctor visits.
61.What is Walmart trying to help with?
A. Finding something new for its employees.
B. Promoting the online service 'telemedicine”.
C. Cutting the online cost of a doctor' s appointment.
D. Reducing the cost of seeing a doctor at a much lower price.
62. What is True about “telemedicine”？
A. It enables patients to see doctors at home for free.
B. It has become increasingly popular in America.
C. It is the online service that is provided by most large US companies.
D. It makes it easier to see a doctor for emergency problems.
63.Why do most people prefer to go to the doctor's office when they are ill?
A. Because their company doesn't provide telemedicine.
B. Because they don't trust the doctors online.
C. Because they look forward to a virtual doctor appointment.
D. Because they have made friends with the doctors.
64.Who is most likely to apply "telemedicine”？
A. Jenny, a shy woman who suffers from mental illness.
B. Smith, a grandpa who has been bitten by a running dog.
C. Wilson, a worker who got seriously injured in a car accident.
D. Kate, a mother whose kid is suffering from a skin disease.
65.What is the author's attitude towards telemedicine”？
A. Positive. B. Negative. C. Objective. D. Doubtful.

Your aim in writing is to communicate ideas and information to other people, and you must keep that in mind with every word and sentence you write. Constantly ask yourself who you really write the information for.
Once you’ve finished a draft of your speech, practice reading it out loud. 70 Revise so you are more comfortable giving your speech. You want to sound natural, no matter what the occasion is.
B. Write for the aim, not for the words
C. It sounds robotic, and employers hate it.
D. Far too often people write without a plan.
E. You’ll hear anything that sounds awkward.
F. Whatever it is, keep your purpose in mind at all times to avoid going off topic.
G. To do this, it is necessary to show them clearly how the different parts relate to each other.
Do you know the origin of life on the earth? It's widely accepted that the universe 71 (begin) with a "Big Bang". After that, the earth was still just a cloud of dust. It took several billion years 72 the dust settled into a solid globe. The earth became so 73 (violence) that it exploded loudly, which produced carbon dioxide, water vapor and other gases. With the earth 74 (cool) down, water then appeared, 75 continued presence made it possible for life to develop. Many millions of years later, the appearance of the 76 (extreme) small plants and the oxygen they produced encouraged the development of all sorts of fish. Next, amphibians, reptiles and dinosaurs appeared one after 77 . The sudden disappearance of dinosaurs caused the rise of mammals, which were different from all life 78 (form) in the past. Finally, humans appeared and spread around the globe. They are not taking good care of the earth now. They are producing too much carbon dioxide, causing the earth too hot to live 79 .Therefore, it's our responsibility 80 (solve) the problem.
