Four things that you can’t miss in Macao
Go Bungee Jumping at the Macao Tower
The Macao Tower, 338 meters tall, is the world’s 10th highest tower, with kinds of activities, such as eating and entertainment. One of the activities is the bungee jump. The Macao Tower Bungee Jump is 233 meters high, making it a Guinness World Record as the highest commercial bungee jump in the world. Raise your arms and off you go! If you are not daring enough to jump that height, you can try the sky walk on the 57th floor-it’s still amazing. Take this chance and tick off this item on your list.
Enjoy a traditional Portuguese dinner
Macao was once colonized (殖民) by Portugal before 1999. As a result, Portuguese culture has deeply affected Macao.
Many Portuguese settled and opened Portuguese restaurants here, but it is more adaptable to Chinese people.
Visit a museum
Macao, as a little city with only an area of 30.5 square kilometers, has 23 eye-catching museums. Due to its special history, both eastern and western historical relics can be found. Many of them are preserved for cultural relics, tourist spots or museums, such as the Grand Prix Museum, Maritime Museum and Wine Museum.
Go into an entertainment place
Well known as the “Las Vegas of the Orient”, Macao has 33 entertainment places. You can find different themed entertainment places with their hotels and attractions around every corner of Macao, especially on Taipa Island. Among all, The Venetian is the most popular. With a huge shopping mall and Vegas-style design, it is a must-go place for both tourists and locals to shop and enjoy free time.

Do you know the term "tweenager"? It's a slang word being used in the UK to describe children 10-13 years old. They are between junior and the teenage years. Why are they suddenly referred to in this way?
Tweenagers now have more money, freedom and influence upon their parents than they've ever had before. More and more companies are creating products and services for tweenagers. You can get everything from branded lunchboxes and mobile phone covers, to monthly fan magazines and clothing-it's all about sales.
Most children in the UK today get more pocket money than kids did a decade ago. It is because parents are having fewer children on average than in the past. In addition, the divorce rate in the UK is continually rising and parents spend less time with their children than they used to. So, many parents try to compensate(补偿) by buying presents for them.
And do tweenagers have more freedom? Well, UK children today are very familiar with media and computer. Many have a television, if not a computer, in their bedrooms. They have access to much more information about the world.
They may have experienced a lot in life as well, since 24% of UK kids live in single-parent families. People now say that "Kids are getting older younger". With such sophistication (世故) at such a young age, they are much more fashion conscious and concerned about their image.
In a world of TV programs that promise overnight success and fame at a young age, some people think it's extremely important to look fashionable. Surely none of the above is a good thing, is it? Can it really be healthy for us to encourage kids to be like adults at such a young age? Are we stealing childhoods in return for profit?
The UK government is certainly concerned, and for that reason has strict laws preventing companies from marketing their products and services at children. So, is there a happy ending to this story?
Companies have just worked out that the older tweenage audience is now looking for something darker and more rebellious. As a result, films such as Twilight are being produced for this older tweenage audience.
24. More and more companies pay attention to the tweenagers because________________.
A. tweenagers have a growing interest in lunchboxes and mobile phones
B. parents are more likely to spend money for their kids than before
C. kids receive less pocket money now but have more freedom
D. every kid has a computer or a TV in their bedroom
25. What does paragraph 2 suggest?
A. Kids have a great influence on the market.
B. The products for the kids are of better quality.
C. Kids are more fashionable than other earlier generations.
D. Kids like to buy magazines and clothing most.
26. What does the underlined sentence in paragraph 5 mean?
A. Children exercise too little to physically healthy.
B. Children look older than they actually should be.
C. Children know more than earlier generations of youngsters knew.
D. Children have more freedom and appear more mature than previous generations.
27. What's the main idea of the passage?
A. The companies make use of tweenagers to make money.
B. Young tweenagers are having a positive influence on adult.
C. The market is changing to meet the demand of kids.
D. Darker and more rebellious movies are popular with kids.

I recently came in contact with celebrity magazines. My family isn’t one to give money for pictures of skinny, drunk celebrities with paragraphs about their relationships and shopping cart times. Thus, I was excited to finally get a chance to read about other people’s attractive yet troubled lives.
Right away I noticed how each magazine seemed to be a copy of the other. They had headlines and pictures that were almost the same. Still, the pictures of perfectly constructed faces with cute designers outfits going on with their daily lives made me read on..
Wait, celebrities taking their dogs for walk? Spending an afternoon at a park? All of these things seemed so ordinary---things my own family and I do together often. I suddenly realized how unextraordinary the people in these magazines were. They are simply normal people who happen to have a cool job and much money. For some reason, pictures of them doing things like buying milk at the store appeal to millions of readers. Then, when these regular people mess up, their mistakes is painted onto hundreds of newspapers and internet sites.
What if every time we made a mistake, it was made public? Have you ever failed a test? Imagine seeing pictures of you on the front of a newspaper with headlines like, “Regular Schooling Isn’t Enough”. You’d be embarrassed. Now, I’m not necessarily taking the celebrity’s side. I’m more realizing the fact that these people we were crazy about are just ordinary human beings with many photographs following them around. Role models? I’d think not. Personally, I’d rather look up to people in any community who have accomplished a lot instead of an ordinary person walking his dog in Berverly Hills.
32. What do we know about the author’s family?
A. They admire celebrities very much.
B. They often buy celebrity magazines.
C. They are not interested in celebrities.
D. They are curious about the life of celebrities.
33. What does the author think of celebrities?
A. They live happy life.
B. They seldom do usual things.
C. They deserve people’s admiration.
D. They are just ordinary people like us.
34. Who is most likely to be the author’s role model?
A. Celebrities who live ordinary live.
B. Common people who do great things.
C. Extraordinary people who accomplish a lot.
D. People who make great contributions to communities.
35. What is the author’s purpose in writing the text?
A. To describe the actual life of celebrities.
B. To ask us to be realistic about other’s mistakes.
C. To show people’s different attitudes towards celebrities.
D. To advise us to have a right attitude towards celebrities.

A few years ago, after a long morning of sightseeing in New York, my children and I took a rest on a park bench in Central Park.
Look!" my son said, 61 (point) to a nearby rubbish bin. That's when we saw our first raccoon (浣熊). Quite at home in the big city, he paid us no attention, concentrating only on finding a 62 (taste) lunch. He sorted through a few options before coming out with a wrapped sandwich 63 (hold) between his paws.
64 (surprise), rather than run away, he jumped down and walked casually to a spot on the path, not a metre from 65 we sat. The children were spellbound, the raccoon providing better 66 (entertain) than any museum. He glanced at us, perhaps checking to see 67 we were about to steal his lunch.
68 delicate fingers, he peeled back the layers of plastic wrap until the half- eaten sandwich 69 _ (uncover).
Then he surprised us all. Instead of starting his food, he turned to a nearby pool of water and 70 (dip) his paws in. With a casual air, he rubbed his paws together underwater for a moment, brushed his fur, then started gracefully picking at his meal.

Ladies and gentlemen,
Good afternoon! Welcome to this year’s English speech competition. As the chairman of the Student Union, I am greatly honored to share some aspects about it with you as follows:
Firstly, the theme of this speech competition is Chinese culture, which should be mainly introduced to the foreigners. And it goes without saying that holding this activity is very meaningful to us. By doing so, not only can we carry forward Chinese culture, but also it can enhance cultural confidence.
In addition, we are supposed to introduce that Chinese culture is extensive and profound. For one thing, we have unique language and our national arts are colorful. For another, Chinese traditional festivals have a long history.
In the end, I sincerely hope that this year’s activity will be held very successfully. And thank you for your active participation.
That’s all! Thank you!
