It was the junior high
sat in the car waiting for my son to come out. Seeing him 36 a
first time, my feelings were mixed. 37 I realized it,
he had become a teenager. The moment he got into the car, he couldn’t wait to
share the prom with me. A smile 38 across my face.
“This is the
39 night I have ever had,” he said. He began telling the story just like
40 a bag of beans. “I was talking with Jane when we saw a girl
standing off into a dark corner alone, crying. Jane asked me to go dancing with
the girl, but I said that Jane was 41 because I didn’t even
know who the girl was. Jane wouldn’t stop and said that I had a（n） 42 to
do something special by dancing with the girl. I knew why she was crying.

be laughed at. What if she turned me 44 .It took me a
lot of 45 to go over and ask if she wanted to
dance. She said yes and we walked out to the dance floor. I felt my face turned
red, but it was 46 and I didn’t think others
noticed. I thought everyone was looking at us, 47 no
one laughed and we danced the whole dance. What happened next was unexpected.
After I danced
with the girl, a lot of guys started dancing with girls 48 hadn’t
danced yet. It was only three minutes, but I was happy that I did something 49
tonight. I learned something, too.”
I could see tears in his
eyes. I gave my son a hug and told him, “I’m so 50 you.”

On a sunny Sunday, ten
people were standing at the airport waiting for the parachute（降落伞）training. Suddenly, with
the help of a guide dog, a blind man was coming with a parachute on his back.
“Do you also come for
the parachute training?” someone asked.
“Yes!” the blind man
answered in a loud voice.
“Ah－” the people cried in
“I know. Are you
wondering how a blind man can parachute?” the blind man said cheerfully, “It’s
not difficult. I’ll parachute like you.”
“But how do you know
when to jump?” someone asked.
“Although I’m blind, I
can hear! When the bell for the training rings, I’ll carry my dog to follow
you.” the blind man replied.
“Then how do you know
when to open the parachute?” someone asked again.
“The coach says,
counting to five from the moment I jump down. I can open it.” replied the blind
“But when you are about
to fall to the ground, how do you know when to fall to the ground? It is the
most dangerous moment.”
“It’s simpler. When my
dog is scared into crying and the rope in my hands becomes light, I’ll prepare
for falling to the ground.”They looked at each other, all silent.
At the end of the training,
the coach told everybody,” In this training, Robert gets the highest score for
his most standard and perfect action.”
“Who is Robert?” they

pointing at the blind young man.

An American friend has
invited you to visit his family. You’ve never been to an American’s home
before, and you are not sure what to do. Don’t worry! When you’re the guest,
you should just make yourself at home.
The question of whether
or not to bring a gift often gives guests a headache. In American culture, it’s
not a must－do thing
to bring a present. Of course, some people do bring some small gifts like
flowers, candies or—if the family has small children－toys. If you choose not to bring a gift, don’t
worry. No one will even notice.
American hospitality（好客）begins at home. Most
Americans agree that good home cooking beats restaurant food any day. When
invited for a meal, you might ask.
“Can I bring anything?”
If it’s not a potluck, where everyone brings a dish, the host will possibly
answer, “No, just yourself.” For most informal dinners, you can just wear comfortable
clothes. Remember to arrive on time, or call to tell your hosts that you may be
During the dinner
conversation, it’s polite to say the food is nice. After dinner, you can help
clear the table or wash the dishes. But since you are the guest, your hosts may
not let you. Instead, they may invite everyone to move to the living room to
drink some tea or coffee. If the hosts are not smokers, you shouldn’t smoke in
their house. And, above all, don’t go around looking at the house if you are not
invited. After about an hour of chat, it’s time to say good－bye. You don’t want to wear out

A. bring no gifts when
visiting an American friend

A. Helping wash the
B. Drinking tea

D. Staying too
long after dinner
62.The passage mainly talks about .
A. how to make friends with
B. how to make oneself at home
at a party
C. how to act properly when
invited by an American
D. how to invite an American
friend to dinner
59.B 细节题。原文中提到If the hosts are not smokers, you shouldn’t smoke in their house.，故可知把吸烟的人带到非吸烟者的家中是失礼的。答案为B。
60.A 细节题。原文中虽然提到If it’s not a potluck,…will possibly answer, “No, just yourself.”，但抽出句子细节，potluck受到了where everyone brings a dish的修饰。所以判断答案为A。

Do you believe that only
boys do well in science? Does it seem to you that girls have better language
skills than boys? In your opinion, are boys better at building things? If your
answer to each of those questions is “Yes,” you are right, according to an
article in Current Science.” There are exceptions（例外）, but here are the facts.
Usually, boys score
higher on tests about math, while girls do better in tests about words,
spelling and memory. But these differences may not always be true. In the future,
a person’s abilities may not be decided by sex. As one scientist says, “Nothing
is impossible for a person to be or do.”
A recent study by Jerome
Kagan, a scientist at Harward University is studying the watching ability of
children 10 months old. Baby boys and baby girls are watching a “show” while
seated on their mothers’ laps. In Act I of the show, an orange－colored hall is lifted from a
blue box and moved slowly. Then it is returned to the box. This is repeated six
times. Act II is almost the same, except that the orange ball is smaller.
Baby boys do not
seem to notice the difference in the size of the ball, but girls immediately
become excited and begin to make noises that sound like language.
It’s also known that
baby girls usually talk at an earlier age than baby boys do. Scientists believe
that the left side of the brain develops faster in girls than in boys. As a result,
by the time they start to school, little girls have an advantage that boys don’t
have, but what have the boys been doing in the year before starting school?
They have been developing something called aggression. An aggressive person
feels strong and independent. He is often the first one to start a fight. It is
said that aggression is caused by hormones（荷尔蒙）.Scientists believe that hormones are not the only cause. They say
aggression in boys is also caused by mothers.
63. Where does this text possibly come
A. Reading for
B. A newspaper
C. A school
D. A travel
64.According to the passage, .
A. boys and girls have
completely different skills
B. it is impossible for girls
to become a scientist in the future
C. girls always get higher
scores than boys in math
D. boys may usually do better
in building things than girls
65. The writer uses the example of the
orange ball to show that
A. baby boys are cleverer than
B. baby boys are not
interested in shows
C. baby girls are better at
watching different things
D. baby girls talk at an
earlier age than baby boys do
66. The underlined word aggression in
paragraph 3 means .
A. an angry
B. a nice
C. a happy
D. a sad
64.D 细节题。原文提到are boys better at building things? If your answer to each of those
questions is “Yes,” you are right，虽然后面还提到there are exceptions，但多数情况下男生更擅长building things。故D正确。
65.C 推断题。原文倒数第二段中提到了男孩和女孩的对橙色球的反应：Baby boys do not seem to notice the difference in the size of the
ball, but girls …证明男孩不注意的事情引起了女孩们的注意。故答案为C。
66.A 词义题。后文指出An aggressive person feels strong and independent.，可以推断出词义为A。
It fills me with
joy that I am a member of the UN Global Education First Youth Advocacy Group. I
have plenty of volunteer experiences and it is from these experiences that I
was chosen out of 400 people who wanted to join to serve in this group.
When I finished
my middle school, I started volunteering in a few non－governmental organizations. I
began to understand a lot about community development. I took part in some
projects and activities about the environment, peace and HIV/AIDS.
I had many
volunteering because people don’t think volunteer work is important. People
consider volunteering as a waste of time. They can’t imagine the fact that
someone can work without pay. My friends and relatives advised me to stop
volunteering. 1 felt hard at
some point but I couldn’t stop because I loved doing it. I decided not to pay
attention to their advice but to continue my work. [来源:Z.xx.k.Com]
One day, a group
of young people came to me and said that they were all thankful to me for the
changes I had brought into their lives through peer（同龄人）education. I was so happy
to hear that because it brought great joy to me .My advice to peers is that we
can’t succeed in life overnight. We have to work hard to achieve our dreams.
Even if you graduate from the best school in the world, it’s not enough because
what matters most is your skill. The best way to discover who you are is to
volunteer. Volunteering does not only allow you to offer your services, but to
learn and discover new things and improve your skills. One secret of voluntary
work is to avoid thinking about money because that is where the problem lies.
