Look at the map of Spain and point at the center. You've located the country's capital and one of Europe's most beautiful cities: Madrid. This popular destination is considered a city of contrasts with its abundant historic sites, resting in the shadows of modern skyscrapers.
This city of over 3 million people is proud of Western Europe's largest royal palace, and some consider it to be Madrid's most beautiful building.
Inside the Royal Palace 2，800 rooms are decorated in glory with museum－quality furniture and artworks. Tourists can tour 50 of these large and splendid rooms.
The Internationally respected Prado Museum is the largest and most impressive art gallery in Spain. Opened in 1819, it is filled with works of art that feature the world's most comprehensive collection of Spanish paintings.
Madrid has some of Europe's best shopping, and potential buyers love to look through the stores looking for bargains. But for 500 years, shoppers have gathered to an extremely large outdoor flea market known as the Rastro where they find everything from antiques to CDs.
No trip to Madrid is complete without seeing a performance of Spain's famous art form, flamenco. Every day, flamenco performers sing, dance or play the guitar in small cafes and grand theaters alike.
Madrid has a wide variety of restaurants, but because the Spanish typically eat late at about 9 or 10 p．m., it's difficult to find good dinner food earlier. If you get hungry before then, the best solution is to try a tapas bar where light snacks are served. Be sure to try the jamon, a kind of dry－cured ham: Spain is famous for it.
21. What do we know about the Royal Palace in Madrid?
A. It has 50 rooms for visit.
B. It can hold 2, 800 people.
C. It's been visited by 3 million people.
D. It is thought to be the largest in Europe.
22. What kind of market is “the Rastro”？
A. For discount.
B. For artworks.
C. To sell various goods.
D. To sell antiques and CDs.
23. What is a must when travelling in Madrid?
A. Having dinner earlier.
B. Enjoying flamenco.

D. Drinking in a tapas bar.
You've been around forever. I can remember all the pain you've caused for me.
Do you remember the night when you almost took my father's life? I do. He loves you. Sometimes I think he loves you more than he loves me. He's addicted to you, to the way you promise to rid him of his problems only to cause more of them. You just sat back and laughed as his car went spinning through the street, crashing into two other cars. He wasn't the only one hurt by you that night.
Do you remember the night of my first high school party? You were there. My friends were__intrigued__by you. They treated you as if they were never going to see you again, drinking all of you that they could. I spent two hours that night helping my friends who had fallen completely. “I'm so embarrassed，” they said as I patted them on the back so that they could vomit(呕吐). “I'm sorry，” they said when I called taxies for them, walking them out and paying the drivers in advance. “This won't happen again，” they said as they were sent to the hospital to have their stomachs pumped. Two 15－year－old girls slept in hospital beds that night thanks to you.
Do you remember the night when you took advantage of my 17－year－old neighbor who had to drive to pick up his sister from her dance lessons? Do you know how we all felt when he hit another car and killed the two people in the other car? He died the next morning too. His sister walked home from her dance lesson, and passed police cars and a crowd of people gathering on the sidewalk just two blocks away from the dance studio. She didn't realize her brother was in the midst of it at all. She never saw him again. And it's all your fault.
I wish you'd walk out of my life forever. I don't want anything to do with you. Look at all the pain you've caused. Sure, you've made people happy too from time to time. But the damage you've caused in the lives of millions is inexcusable. Stop luring(引诱) the people I love. Stop hurting me, please!

In 1971, UN scholar Paolo Lugari started an eco－social experiment in Gaviotas, Colombia. Located in one of the most extreme climates, Gaviotas was described as a sustainable, self－sufficient village in an area that Lugari called ‘just a big, wet desert’．
‘They always put social experiments in the easiest places，’ Lugari said.‘We wanted the hardest place. We figured if we could do it here, we could do it anywhere.’
‘Lugari just thought that someday the world would become so crowded that humans would have to learn to live in the planet's least desirable areas，’ wrote Alan Weisman, author of Gaviotas: A Village to Reinvent the World.
Today, Gaviotas is an eco－village with about 200 people. They farm organically. They use wind and solar power. Since 2004, Gaviotas has been 100% fossil fuel independent. The residents also enjoy free housing, schooling, and community meals. Shockingly, there are no weapons, no police, no jail and no mayor. But though these elements would make any social experiment a success, perhaps the most remarkable accomplishment is the planting of 1.5 million pine trees and palm trees. The various results of this new tree growth have been incredible. The shade of the trees has inspired the return of many rainforest species that were once native to the region. Additionally, the residents of Gaviotas enjoy a sustainable source of income from the resin(松香) harvested from the trees.
The United Nations named Gaviotas a model of sustainable development. The Colombia novelist and Noble Prize winner Grabriel Marquez called Lugari the ‘inventor of the world’．
A new study by a team of researchers has found that ‘nature's capacity to store carbon is steadily falling as the world's farmers expand croplands at the cost of the native ecosystem such as forests’．
Considering this disturbing fact—and as the world population increases towards an estimated 9 billion by the year 2050 and global warming continues to increase the planet's surface temperature—Gaviotas stands as one shining example of how things could be different.

If you are taking vitamin supplements to reduce your risk of heart disease or cancer, a group of health experts want you to know that those vitamins may actually increase your risk of cancer.
The US Preventive Services Task Force came to this conclusion after reviewing dozens of studies.
Nearly half of adults in the US take at least one vitamin or mineral supplement on a regular basis. These pills are advertised as a way to promote general health. In some cases, manufacturers promote them as cancer fighters and heart protectors.
Studies in animals and in laboratory dishes suggest that oxidative(氧化性的) stress contributes to diseases like cancer and heart disease. If so, there is a reason to believe that antioxidants—including beta－carotene, vitamins A, C, and E—could be useful as preventive medicines.
But when the Task Force examined the medical evidence on vitamins, it found “inadequate(不充分的) evidence” to support the claims that vitamin and mineral supplements benefit healthy adults.
“Cardiovascular(心血管的) disease and cancer have a significant health impact in America, and we all want to find ways to prevent these diseases，” Dr. Virginia Moyer, who heads the Task Force, said in a statement. But so far, she added, the medical evidence does not show that taking vitamins is helpful in this regard.
However, the Task Force did find “adequate evidence” that people with a raised risk for lung cancer actually increase their risk further by taking beta－carotene, a precursor of vitamin A.
The Task Force recommendations of taking vitamins regularly apply to healthy adults aged 50 and older who don't have “ special nutritional needs”. The advice does not apply to children, women who are pregnant or may become pregnant, people with chronic illnesses, or people who have to take supplements because they can't get all their essential nutrients from their diet.
32. Studies in animals and in laboratory dishes find out________．
A. ample evidence that taking vitamins are helpful for treating lung cancer
B. cardiovascular disease spreads very fast in America
C. oxidative stress can lead to heart disease and cancer
D. people must take vitamins on a regular basis
33. What can we conclude from Task Force's findings?
A. Scientists want to control cardiovascular disease.
B. In some regard, taking vitamins is not useful.
C. Manufacturers cannot produce medical－use vitamins.
D. Vitamins must be useful to prevent cancer and heart disease.
34. Who can take vitamins regularly according to the advice of the Task Force?
A. A 60－year－old healthy worker.
B. A 15－year－old boy with short－sightedness.
C. A 34－year－old pregnant lady.
D. A 40－year－old man who never eats vegetables or fruits.
35. What's the best title for the text?
A. An Inside Look at Vitamins
B. Task Force: Ending to Vitamins
C. Vitamins: To Live or to Kill
D. Taking Vitamins to Prevent Cancer May Fail

It is good to see that more people have realized the important of exercising and are playing sports regularly. But the problem is that there is not enough sports facilities to meet the people growing demand. I love playing the basketball with my friends on weekends. Therefore, it is difficult to rent a basketball field and possible to find a free one. And the charge is highly. Weather permitted, we can play outdoors. But winter or rainy days, we have to turn to indoor courts. I hope the government can solve the problem, that will encourage more people to do sports.
I have received your email of July 28. I am happy to hear that you, as a tutor of the graduate admitted to Beijing University this year, were invited to dinner at his home.________________________________________________________________________

I have received your email of July 28. I am happy to hear that you, as a tutor of the graduate admitted to Beijing University this year, were invited to dinner at his home. In response to your concerns about how to be a guest in China, I'd like to offer my personal advice.
Firstly, you'd better arrive a little earlier than the expected dinner time to save more time for the graduate's family to prepare dinner. Secondly, gifts like a book or a pen are acceptable. If possible, you can also send him a “red packet” containing 666 RMB meaning “successful in everything”. Moreover, we Chinese often treat guests with delicious dishes. When at table, you shouldn't start eating first but follow the host or the senior guests. Sometimes, the host will help you to some dishes, and you can just show your appreciation and gladly have them, which will please them all.
I do wish your first Chinese home dinner an unforgettable experience.
M: Our backyard is such a waste to be used as a storage place. I was thinking of turning it into a garden. What do you think about that?
W: How about a swimming pool? I do enjoy swimming in summer.
W: Good morning, Professor Wang. My name is Susan Gray. I'm with the local newspaper. Do you mind if I ask you a few questions?
M: Not at all. Go ahead, please.
W: I got to work right on time, and Jason has been here since a quarter to nine. So there were two people here doing nothing waiting for you to come.
M: I'm sorry for being late for half an hour. I know it's my job to open the doors at nine.
W: Every year, there are a large number of forest fires, and the causes are not mysterious.
M: Yeah. Most of them are caused by human activities, like people throwing away burning cigarettes.
W: There is a traditional lion dance performance tonight. Do you want to watch it?
M: I've been wanting to see one for a long time.
W: It's gonna be sunny this Saturday. Wanna have a picnic in the park?
M: Great. And we can also ride our bikes for a while.
W: Yeah. Then there will be a wedding in the evening.
M: Oh, I almost forgot it! Dyson and Jason invited us for their wedding dinner. Hope it won't last long. I really want to get home early to watch the football game.
W: Me too. I was invited to attend a local painting exhibition in the museum this Sunday morning. So I really need to have enough time for a good sleep.
M: What's the matter, Alice?
W: Sorry, Mr. Harrison. I missed my train.
M: Why did you miss the train?
W: Because I left home a little late.
M: Did you get up late or something?
W: No. My aunt called me at the last minute and I had to talk to her.
M: Tell her not to call you in the morning.
W: I will, Mr Harrison. I'm really sorry for being late.
M: If you are late again, I won't let you pass for this class.
W: Jeff, what's your favorite Mexican holiday?
M: Definitely the Day of the Dead.
W: What is that? It sounds a little scary.
M: It's not really scary for us Mexicans. Actually that day we celebrate, well, not celebrate, but remember our family members who are already dead.
W: OK. How do you remember then?
M: We put a big table decorated with flowers, bread, coffee or whatever the person that is dead used to like and we think that on that day that person is going to come back from the dead.
W: I see. And when do you have the holiday?
M: It's on November the first, and the second, too.
W: Do you do it just for your family or do you go and visit friends or other relatives?
M: No, we only keep it within the family actually.
W: John, you seem to be a little bit mad. Did I say something wrong?
M: No, Julia. It's not about you.
W: Oh? Then what is it?
M: Haven't you noticed that red car? It keeps trying to cut in. I'll teach that young lady who is the better driver.
W: John, you've been caught by your road rage again... We are not in a hurry anyway. Just let her pass.
M: Err, sorry, Julia. I just become easily losing my temper when I'm driving. I took these pills an hour ago to make myself calm, but it doesn't seem to work at all.
W: You know the yoga class I've been taking? It really helps me get my inner peace. Why don't you come with me next time and give it a go?
M: Err, it's so girly. I just can't find a man I know doing yoga. So forget about it.
M: First, let me introduce myself. I'm Dr. Jason, from our school hospital. I've been asked to speak to you this afternoon on running. I guess most of what I'm going to say isn't new to you. However, I also want you to have a new look on running.
I'm a runner myself. I got into it in middle school. I've been running for 27 years. Every morning I get up and go out to run before breakfast. It helps me a lot.
Is running the only sport that can help us? In fact, exercise seems to be the key to better health. Do a little exercise each day, and a ten－minute walk is plenty to start the long－run exercise.
To start exercise, you should check with your doctor before you begin any hard exercise, especially if you are over 30. And it is no good overdoing it. Increase your running distance every time you run, for instance, half a mile, twice a week. And if you stop your training for more than a couple of days, don't try to pick it up where you left off.
