There was once a young man who suffered from cancer.He was 1 8 years old and he
could die anytime. 71 He never went outside;but he was sick of staying home and wanted to go out for once.So he asked his mother and she gave him permission.
He walked down his block and found a lot of stores.He passed a CD store and saw a beauti ful girl about his age and he knew it was love at first sight.He opened the door and walked in.
She looked up and asked，”Can I help you?”
He said, “U11…Yeah…Umm…I would like to buy a CD.”
Hc picked one out and gave her money for it.
“Would you like me to wrap it for you?”she asked，smiling her cute smile.
He nodded and she went to the back.She came back with the wrapped CD and gave it to him.He took it and walked out of the store.
He wcnt home and from then on，he went to that store every day and bought a CD，and she wrapped it for him.He took the CD home and put it in his closet. He was still too shy to ask her out.His mother found out about this and told him to just ask her. So the next day, he took a11 his courage and went to the store as usual.He bought a CD like he did every day and once again she went to the back of the store and came back with it wrapped. He took it and when she wasn’t looking，he left his phone number on the desk and ran out.
0ne day , the phone rang，and the mother picked it up and said，“Hello?”
It was the girl !!! The mother started to cry and said，“You don,t know? He passed away yesterday...”
Later in the day, the mother went into the boy’s room because she wanted to remember him.She thought she would start by looking at his clothes, so she opened the closet.
72 She was face to face with piles and piles of unopened CDs.She was surprised to find all these CDs and she picked one up and sat down on the bed and she started to open one. Inside，there was a CD and as she took it out of the wrapper,out fell a piece of paper.The mother picked it up and started to read it.It said：Hi…1 think U R really cute.Do U wanna go out with me?Love，Jocelyn.
The mother was deeply moved and opened another CD...
Again there was a piece of paper.It said：Hi…I think U R really cute.Do U wanna go out with me? Love，Jocelyn.

Common sense would tell us that physically active children may be more likely to become active and healthy adults.73 In the United States，elementary and middle schools are advised to give students two and a half hours of ohvsical activity a week.That is what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Heart Association l'ecommend (推薦).They say high schools should provide about four hours of physical activity each week.Yet many schools across the country have reduced their physical education programs.Criticism of the cuts has led in some places to efforts to give students more time for exercise，not less.
The future health of Americans may depend on it.Just this week，a study reported that life expectancy(預期壽命)has fallen or is no longer increasing in some parts of the United States.The situation 1s worst among poor people in the southern states.and especially women.Public health researchers say it is largely the result ofincreases in obesity(肥胖)，smoking and high blood pressure.They also blame difierences in health services around the country.
In 2006，a study found that only four percent of elementary schools provided daily physical education all year for all grades.This was true of eight percent of middle schools and two percent of high schools.74 The study also found that 22 percent of a11 schools did not reauire student to take any P.E.(體育課)
Charlene Burgeson is the executive director of the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.She says one problem for P E.teachers iS that schools are under pressure to put more time into academic subjects.Also，parents may agree that children need exercise in school.Yet many parents today still have bad memories of being chosen last for teams because teachers favored the good athletes in class.
But experts say PE classes have changed.They say the goal has moved away fromcompetition and toward personal performance.as a way to build a lifetime of activity.These days，teachers often lead activities like weight training and yoga . 75 Some parents like the idea of avoiding competitive sports in PE class.Yet others surely dislike that idea.In the end, schools may find themselves in a no-win situation.
55.Why are schools recommended to give students certain time for sports?
A.Because difierent schools set up difrerent physical education programs.
B.Because the physical activity of children will influence their health in adulthood.
C.Because nowadays children spend too much time on their studies.
D.Because only four percent of elementary schools provided daily physical education.
56.AIl the following factors may have caused fallen life expectancy in some parts of the United
States EXCEPT that _______.

Vitamins are important to our health.Difierent vitamins are found in difierent foods.grains.vegetables and fruits，fish and meat，eggs and milk products.So which foods should
be eaten to get enough of the vitamins our bodies need?Let us look at some important vitamins for the answer.
Vitamin A helps prevent skin and other tissues from becoming dry.People who do not get enough Vitamin A cannot see well in darkness.They may develop a condition that dries the eyes.This can result in infections and lead to blindness.Vitamin A is found in fish liver oil.It
is also in the yellow part of eggs.Sweet potatoes.carrots and other darkly colored fruits and vegetables contain substances that the body can change into Vitamin A.
Vitamin B is also called thiamine(硫膠).Thiamine changes starchy foods jnto energy.It also helps the heart and nervous system work smoothly.Without it.we would be weak and would not grow.We also might develop beriberi(腳氣病).Thiamine is found not iust in whole grains like brown rice.but also jn other foods.These include beans and peas.nuts.and meat and fish.
Vitamin C is needed for strong bones and teeth.and for healthy blood passages.It also helps wounds heal quickly.The body stores little Vitamin C.So we must get it every day in foods such as citrus fruits，tomatoes and uncooked cabbage.
Vitamin D increases levels of the element calcium(鏟')in the blood.Calcium is needed for nerve and muscle cells to work normally.It is also needed to build strong bones.VitaminD prevents the children’s bone disease rickets(佝僂癇).Ultraviolet light from the sun changes a substance in the skin into vitamin D Fish liver oil also contains vitamin D.In some countries.milk producers add vitamin D to milk so children will get enough.

42.【答案解析】B。本題考查倒裝的讓步狀語從句的使用方法。形容詞，副詞，動詞原形，不加冠詞的單數名詞+ as/though+句子其它成分，構成倒裝的讓步狀語從句，其正常語序為’Though she was tired，…。句意：盡管她很累，但是卻不能入睡。
46.【答案解析】B。本題考查虛擬語氣的倒裝和省略用法。此處為虛擬語氣用于將來情況的用法。此時if從句用(If I)’were to do sth.或(If I)should do sth.，為了強調可以用其倒裝結構，且省略if。倒裝省略句為Were I to become或should I do等。句意：如果我要成為一名研究生，至少需要掌握兩門外語。
47.【答案解析】C。本題考查It is the(first, second)third time that…結構用法。該結構中that從句要用現在完成時。另外考查have been to和have gone to的區別。句意：這是我第三次到故宮了，我依然認為它可嘆為觀止。
49.【答案解析】B。本題考查定語從句。先行詞為不定代詞時，引導詞要用“that'’，且在從句中作賓語，可以省略(此時All that you can do…=What you can do…)。句意：你可做的能安慰她的事，就是耐心地聽她的故事。

There is so much more meaning to a message than what exists in the spoken or written words. For example, if a person says, “you know, Barbara, I really like you,” it has different meanings depending on whether it is said by man or a woman, in an office or a bar. Context, the tone of voice, the stress put on certain words, as well as the eye contact, physical distance, and the relationship between the speaker and the listener are all factors which give meaning to what’s being said. Sometimes, these factors can generate much more meaning than the words themselves. If a friend say to me, “Gee, I can’t wait to see the result of the upcoming election,” my interpretation of that message will be based upon my knowledge of my friend’s political views, the situation with the current campaign, and my ability to understand the meaning behind the tone of voice.
Our ability to understand such cue is developed without us being aware of it through our process of socialization, Our interpretation of these cues just comes naturally. Every culture has its own set of culture cues that each member of that culture understands. It’s common how a person from culture A and a person from culture B interpret the very same words in totally different ways. Here are some examples:
When ”Sarcasm” Means “Sincerity”
Marsha thought things were going well with her new French friends, particularly Bertrand. He often invited her to interesting and fun events, but he was often making fun of her. One day at an art exhibition, while looking at a particularly abstract piece, Marsha said that she couldn’t understand what the artist was trying to express. Bertrand smiled and responded, “Yes, I’m afraid French art is far too advanced for Americans to understand.” Marsha was upset; she really liked him and couldn’t figure out what caused him to frequently make fun of her. So, she asked her host mother about it. “My dear,” the host mother told her, “This means that he really likes you. In France, when someone feels comfortable enough to make fun of you, that mean that you have been welcomes as a very close friends.”
Joshua, an American student in Heredia, Costa Rican partner to meet for coffee. When he asked what time they should meet, the response was “Nos encontramos ahora en elparquet”. “Ahora” literally means now. So, he grabbed his jacket and headed straight to the park where they agreed to meet. Half an hour later, his friend arrived without the least sigh of regret for being late. After discussing the matter with his Spanish teacher, Joshua learned that in Costa Rica, ”Ahora” means sometime within the hour. And, if people decide to meet someplace like park, it is no problem for one or the other to wait for a while because they will spend some nice time in the park, probably running into some other friends, or meeting someone friendly.
When “Yes” Doesn’t Means “Yes”
Many business people might have experienced this frustrating situation in Japan. Sarah, a young businesswoman from New York, was sent to Japan to close a big deal for her company. While giving her presentation, she became more and more certain of sale because her Japanese business partners continually nodded their heads as she spoke. When she finished, she thought the deal was made and asked when they would like to sign the agreement. She was shocked when she was told that they were not yet sure if they wanted to make the deal or not. What Sarah did not know is that in Japan, nodding head does not necessarily mean “yes” as it does in the US. It can also mean “yes, I am listening and understanding what you are saying.”

The automobile has given people incredible freedom of movement. It enables them to decide where they want to go and when. The automobile influences where people live and work and how they spend their leisure time. The striking changes in people’s lives created by the automobile began in the United States and have since spread across much of the globe, especially in developed countries. But even in developing nations, the automobile is increasingly reshaping patterns of living.
When the first automobiles were produced, only the well-to-do could afford them. Soon, however, prices declined as production increased in response to the growing demand. The lower prices put the automobile within reach of more and more Americans. Well-off urban residents found car ownership cheaper than keeping a horse and carriage. The growth in car ownership led to the building of more and better roads, which further increased travel throughout the nation. Before the development of automobiles, urban workers walked, bicycled, or rode horse-drawn vehicles to their jobs. But as roads improved and car ownership expanded, workers no longer had to live near their jobs.
During the 1920s, people in U.S. cities increasingly moved to the suburbs because of the freedom provided to the workers by automobile ownership. By the mid-1950s, even factories had begun to relocate in the suburbs. Wherever people have easy access to automobiles, cars play a major role in social life and the choice of recreational activities. People find it fun to hop in the car and visit friends and relatives, whether the drive takes a few minutes, hours, or days. The automobile helps make it easy to organize picnics, family reunions, and other get-togethers. Trips by automobile to such places as theme parks, national parks, and mountain and seashore resorts are a favorite type of vacation for many people.
55. Which of the following is NOT a change brought by the automobile?
A. The freedom to go anywhere in the world.
B. The changed way of entertaining ourselves in life.
C. The growth of more and better roads.
D. The disregard of the existence of national borders.
56. What does the word “well-to-do” (Line 1, Para.2) mean ?
A. Excellent. B. Well done. C. Rich. D. Better.
57. Which of the following is NOT a change directly created by automobiles?
A. More theme parks and national parks were set up.
B. More city residents moved to suburban areas.
C. More and better roads were built.
D. People have family reunions more frequently.
58. What is the author’s attitude toward automobiles?
A. Negative. B. Positive. C. Neutral. D. Indifferent.
To become a success in high tech Silicon Valley, Alan Aerts used low tech skills and hard work. He carried boxes of produce for a grocery store and sold bread to restaurants while launching a vending machine business that sells soft drinks and snack foods to workaholic computer engineers.
In 190, on his route as a bread salesman for a bakery, Aerts ran into the owner of a Pac Man game control panel who was servicing his equipment at a restaurant in Oakland, California. Aerts, who always wore a shirt and tie on sales calls, was impressed by the other fellow’s jeans and T shirt and resolved to branch out on his own.
But capitalism requires capital, and Aerts had little money to spare. Living paycheck to paycheck with his wife and newborn son, he worked days at the bakery and nights at a grocery store to pay the mortgage. During downtime between jobs, he developed his business strategy. ”I’m sure I did every wrong thing you can possibly do,” says Aerts. “But I knew that with enough hard work, it would all make sense.”
To get his business off the ground, he relied on a second mortgage and credit cards, sometimes paying rates as high as 19%, to buy video game and vending machines. After purchasing several machines at retail price, he realized he could buy them directly from the manufacturers for less. And he learned that vending machines were more profitable than video games, which needed to be replaced frequently to keep up with the fickle tastes of gamers. Aerts used the contacts he made through his bakery job to prospect for new business. To hedge his bets, he put in ten years at the grocery store to earn a modest pension.
Today, Aerts’s company, Custom Vending Systems, is the largest privately owned vendor in the region. He says business is booming as the Valley’s economy blossoms after its 2000 bust. In 2005, Aerts and his wife donated $ 2.5 million to fund scholarships at the local community college. He’s still busy around the clock, but now he dedicates evenings and weekends to charity work and local politics instead of a second job.

D. He was sure that it was the right time to start his own business.
