One day when I was 12, my mother gave me an order: I was to walk to the public library, and borrow at least one book for the summer. This was one more weapon for her to defeat my strange problem—inability to read.
In the library, I found my way into the “Children’s Room”. I sat down on the floor and pulled a few books off the shelf at random. The cover of a book caught my eye. It presented a picture of a beagle. I had recently had a beagle, the first and only animal companion I ever had as a child. He was my “secret sharer”, but one morning, he was gone, given away to someone who had the space and the money to care for him. I never forgot my beagle.
There on the book’s cover was a beagle which looked identical(相同的) to my dog. I ran my fingers over the picture of the dog on the cover. My eyes ran across the title, Amos: the Beagle with a Plan. Unknowingly, I had read the title. Without opening the book, I borrowed it from the library for the summer.
Under the shade of a brush, I started to read about Amos. I read very, very slowly with difficulty. Though pages were turned slowly, I got the main idea of the story about a dog who, like mine, had been separated from his family and who finally found his way back home. That dog was my dog, and I was the little boy in the book. At the end of the story, my mind continued the final scene of reunion, on and on, until my own lost dog and I were, in my mind, running together
My mother’s call returned me to the real world. I suddenly realized something: I had read a book, and I had loved reading that book. Everyone knew I could not read. But I had read it. Books could be incredibly wonderful and I was going to read them.
I never told my mother about my “miraculous(奇迹)” experience that summer, but she saw a slow but remarkable improvement in my classroom performance during the next year. And years later, she was proud that her son had read thousands of books, was awarded a PhD in literature, and authored his own books, articles, poetry and fiction. The power of the words has held.
25. The author’s mother told him to borrow a book in order to ________.
A. encourage him to do more walking B. let him spend a meaningful summer
C. help cure him of his reading problem D. make him learn more about weapons
26. The book caught the author’s eye because________.
A. it reminded him of his own dog B. he found its title easy to understand
C. it contained pretty pictures of animals D. he liked children’s stories very much
27. Why could the author manage to read the book through?
A. He was forced by his mother to read it. B. He identified with（对某事有同感） the story in the book.
C. The book told the story of his pet dog. D. The happy ending of the story attracted him.
28. Which one could be the best title of the passage?
A. My Passion for Reading B .Mum’s Strict Order
C. Reunion with My Beagle. D. The Charm of a Book.
Petrol and diesel cars may still dominate（影响） our roads, but their days are numbered. A recent university study found that current electric cars could be used for 87 per cent of daily car journeys in the US. That figure could rise to 98 per cent by 2020.
One hurdle to the widespread adoption of electric cars has been “range anxiety”---drivers’ concerns about running out of juice on a journey. While petrol stations are conveniently located across national road systems, the necessary network of electric charging stations is still being developed. In fact, charging points are becoming increasingly common throughout the USA.
Attitudes towards electric vehicles have changed quite considerably over the last few years. Not that long ago, electric cars met with distrust, and their high price tags drove customers away. Thanks to improvements in battery capacity, recharging times, performance and price, the current generation of electric cars is starting to persuade critics. Plug –in cars will soon give internal combustion engine models a run for their money.
As well as advancements on the road, electric vehicles are taking to the sea and sky. Electric boats are among the oldest electric vehicles, having enjoyed several decades of popularity from the late 19th to the early 20th century before petrol-powered outboard motors took over. Now, the global drive for renewable energy sources is bringing electric boats back. Steps towards electric planes are also being made, with Airbus and NASA among the organizations developing and testing battery-powered planes. The experiments could soon make commercial electric flight a reality.
Electric vehicles do not produce any emissions. Were the US to act on the study’s findings and replace 87 percent of its cars with electric vehicles, it would reduce the national demand for petrol by 61 per cent. However, because of the production processes and the generation of electricity required to charge these vehicles, they cannot claim to be completely emission-free. Even so, as many countries continue to increase their use of renewable energy sources, electric vehicles will become even cleaner.
29. Which of the following can be the best title for this passage?
A．My Dream Car B．History of Electric Cars
C．Problems with Petrol Cars D．Driving into the Future
30．The underlined word “hurdle” in Paragraph 2 means ________.
A．aim B．barrier C．consequence D．step
31. In the past, why did many people refuse to buy the electric cars according to the passage?
A．They were not good value. B．They were very poorly made.
C．They were not widely promoted D．They couldn’t travel at a high speed.
32. What is the function of Paragraph 4?
A．To introduce the history of electric vehicles.
B．To explain why the world needs more electric cars.
C．To show why more people have interest in electric cars
D．To describe different ways electric vehicles can be used.
A new app is trying to make it simpler to help you react to photos and videos that your friends post online---it’s using AI to capture（捕捉） your facial expressions and automatically translate them into a range of emoji（表情符号） faces.
Polygram, which is free and available only for the iPhone for now, is a social app that lets you share things like photos, videos, and messages.
Unlike on Facebook, though, where you have a small range of pre-set reactions to choose from beyond clicking a little thumbs-up icon（图标）, Polygram uses a neural（神经的） network that runs locally on the phone to figure out if you’re smiling, bored, embarrassed, surprised, etc.
Marcin Kemiec, one of Polygram ‘s founders, says the app’s AI works by capturing your face with the front-facing camera on the phone and analyzing the images as quickly as possible, rather than just looking at specific points on the face like your eyes and nose. This is done directly on the phone, using the iPhone’s picture processing unit, he says.
When you look at a post in the app, you see a small yellow emoji on the bottom of the display, its expression changing along with your real one.
There’s a slight delay—20 milliseconds, which is just hard to notice—between what you’re expressing on your face and what shows up in the app. The app records your responses in a little log of emoji on the side of the screen, along with those of others who’ve already looked at the same post.
The app is meant to appeal to those who really care about how they’re understood on social media. Users can see a record of the emoji reactions to each photo or video they post to the app, as well as details about who looked at the post, how long they looked at it, and where they’re located.
Eventually, the founders say, they may release software tools that let other developers come up with their own applications for the technology.
33．As a new social app, which characteristic of Polygram is true?
A．It is cheap and available only for the iPhone for now.
B．It eventually transfers emoji faces to facial expressions automatically.
C．It specializes in a neural network that runs originally on your phone.
D．It needs to choose from many reactions that have been set previously.
34．Those who ________will be obviously attracted by this new app.
A. are new technology fans B. are addicted to new iPhones
C. have a great passion for emoji D. are concerned about self-evaluation
35．What’s the purpose of the passage?
A．To promote and sell a new software. B．To introduce to us a new and popular app.
C．To reveal the significance of a new technology. D．To inform us of the popularity of a new app.
Self-motivation occurs when a person has the willingness to do something and is internally（内心的） motivated to do it.
__36__ There is a job to go to, groceries to do, television to watch ---whoops!

Decide what you want.
It’s hard to motivate an aimless mind. __38__ Then break it down into smaller sections so it’s easier to handle and less overwhelming(势不可挡)
Keep track of your progress.
Keep a journal where you can measure how much you have accomplished.__39__
Post motivating pictures or slogans within your sight.
It is always inspiring to see pictures of people who have accomplished what you’re going for. It makes it attainable. Likewise, little slogans like “go for it” or “just do it” can give you the little support you need.
Once you have accomplished your objective, e.g. becoming an early riser, keep it up so that it’s second nature to you and you don’t have to think about it anymore.
A．Make it a habit.
B．Support yourself with slogans.

51 reaching my daughters, I noticed the man still standing near the door. I reached them and passed the 52 at the entrance door which he 53 holding open. I looked back thinking he was still at the door, deciding whether to go in 54 find another less crowded place. I saw him going up the stairs and I told my daughters about it. We three felt 55 that we did not even 56 the polite gentleman who was actually 57 the door open for us ladies.

Last summer vacation, I worked in restaurant. One day, I was about to be off duty then three foreigners came in. Since it was my first time to talk with foreigners, suddenly my mind went blankly. I failed to respond to their question. But a few minutes later, I refresh myself. So, I began to talk to them and adapted to that atmosphere gradually. I restarted to pick up my confident again. One of them, who seemed in his thirtieth, praised on me for my self-confidence. After that, I swore I must learnt English well, especially spoken English, and never make that embarrassing thing happening again.

作文:One possible version：
In today’s world, being able to master a foreign language will be helpful in our life. Here I’d like to share my learning methods.
First, I think it’s useful to learn grammar and remember as many as useful sentence patterns as possible. I believe the more we read, the better our English will be. So I spend much time reading English newspapers and magazines after class, which helps to improve my English. Besides, TV and radio programs are of great help. Learning English not only increases my awareness of foreign cultures but also helps me to communicate with English-speaking people and to make more new friends.
However, sometimes I get discouraged because I keep forgetting words I have just learned. I’d like to use the opportunity to seek for your advice.
