I . 语言知识及应用(共两节,满分 45 分) 第一节: 完形填空 (共 15 小题; 每小题 2 分,满分 30 分) The concept of solitude (独处) in the digital world is almost non-existent. In the world of digital technology, e-mail, social networking and online video games, information is meant to be 1 . Solitude can be 2 to discover once it has been given up. In this respect, new technologies have 3 our culture. The desire to be connected has brought solitude to an end. People have become so 4 in the world of networks and connections that one can often be contacted even if they'd rather not be. Today we can talk, text, e-mail, chat and blog, not only from our 5 but from our mobile phones as well. Most developed nations have become 6 on digital technology simply because they've grown accustomed to it, and at this point not using it would make them an outsider. Also , many jobs and careers require people to be 7 . From this point of view, technology has changed the culture of 8 . Being reachable might feel like a 9 to those who may not want to be able to be contacted at all times. I suppose the positive side is that solitude is still possible for anyone who 10 wants it. Computers can be shut down and mobile phones can be turned off. The ability to be "connected" and "on" has many 11 , as well as disadvantages. Travelers have ended up 12 on mountains, and mobile phones have saved countless lives. They can also make people feel trapped and 13 to answer unwanted calls or 14 to unwanted texts. Attitudes towards our connectedness as a society 15 across generations. Some find today's technology a gift. Others consider it a curse.

第二节: 语法填空(共 10 小题; 每小题 1.5 分,满分 15 分) My most embarrassing moment occurred last month. I was invited to attend an interview 16 a job as a hotel receptionist. I arrived on time and was shown into the manager’s office by an assistant. I was so nervous 17 I didn’t catch the manager’s name. The interview began. “Do you have any previous experience in hotels?” asked the manager. “No sir,” I said. The manager frowned. “Are you good at using computers?” “Yes, sir. I am familiar 18 most popular kinds of software.” The manager frowned again. He didn’t look a friendly person. The interview continued. Every answer I gave 19 (receive) by a frown from the manager, even though I told him about my 20 (communicate) skills, my knowledge of French and so on. Obviously, I was doing very badly. At last, the interview came to a close. “One final question,” said the manager. “How good is 21 eyesight?” “Excellent, sir,” I replied. “Very well,” said the manager, “thank you for coming.” I stood up 22 (shake) hands. 23 the manager stood up as well, I realized what I had been doing wrong. The gentleman 24 I had been calling “sir” during the whole interview was wearing a skirt! The manager was a woman! I didn’t get 25 job. II. 阅读(共两节,25 题,满分 50 分) 第一节: 阅读理解 (共 20 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 40 分) A Dr Wiseman started “the laugh lab” project in September 2001. It is the largest study of humour. Participants (参加者) are invited to log on to the laugh lab website, give a few personal details, tell their favourite jokes and judge the jokes told by other people. The project will last for a year, and the organizers hope to finally discover the world’s funniest joke. But there is also a serious purpose. The researches want to know what people from different nations and cultures find funny. And they want to find out the differences between the male and female sense of humour. The idea is that if we want to understand each other, we have to find out what makes us laugh. This is a subject that has long attracted psychologists and philosophers. Most of the time, people are not completely honest. We do things that society
2

expects us to and say things that help us get what we want. But laughing cannot be controlled. When we laugh, we tell the truth about ourselves. By December 2001 over 10, 000 jokes had been submitted. This gave the scientists enough evidence to make early conclusions. It seems that men and women do have different senses of humour, for instance. “Our findings show the major differences in the ways in which males and females use humour, ” said Dr. Wiseman. “Males use humour to appear superior to others, while women are more skilled in languages and prefer word play. ” Researchers also found that there really is such a thing as a national sense of humour. The British enjoy what is usually called “toilet humour”. But the French like their jokes short and sharp: “You’re a high priced lawyer. Will you answer two questions for $500?” “Yes. What’s the second question?” The Germans are famous for not having a sense of humour. But the survey found that German participants were more likely to find submitted jokes funny than any other nationality. Perhaps that proves the point. Is this joke funny? I don’t know, but let’s say yes, just to be safe. Dr Wiseman and his workmates also submitted jokes created by computer. But none of those who took part in the survey found any of them amusing. Perhaps this is relief. Computers already seem like they can do everything. At least they should leave the funny stuff to us. 26. Scientist started “ the laugh lab” project________ A. to find the funniest joke in European countries B. to know what funny people are like from different nations and cultures C. to find out the differences between the male and female sense of humour D. to get more personal details about participants 27. We can infer from the passage that________. A. most of the people all over the world are completely honest B. psychologists and philosophers take interest in the “laugh lab” project C. ordinary people are not interested in “the laugh lab” project at all D. people tell the truth about themselves only when they laugh 28. According to the passage, we can safely say that ________. A. Jokes created by computer are less appealing to people. B. Men and women have similar senses of humour. C. The project lasted from September, 2001 to December, 2001. D. Scientists have collected enough evidence to make final conclusions. 29. The writer gave the examples of the British, the French and the Germans________. A. to show thane French people have a better sense of humour B. to prove the British people have a sense of “toilet humour”
3

C. to show people from different nations have different senses of humour D. to prove that the Germans have no sense of humour 30. What is the best title for the passage? A. Funny or not? B. Laugh louder! C. Men laugh better. D. Watch out for the trap in jokes! B Traditional fairytales are being abandoned by parents because they are too scary for their young children, a study found. Research revealed one in five parents has ditched old classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Rapunzel in favour of more modern books. One third of parents said their children have been left in tears after hearing the horrible details of Little Red Riding Hood. And nearly half of mothers and fathers refuse to read Rumplestiltskin to their kids as the themes of the story are kidnapping and execution. Similarly, Goldilocks and the Three Bears was also a tale likely to be left on the book shelf as parents felt it forgives stealing. The survey of 2,000 adults was conducted to mark the launch of the hit US drama GRIMM, which starts tonight at 9pm on Watch, and sees six episodes based on traditional fairytales. The poll found a quarter of parents polled wouldn’t consider reading a fairytale to their child until they had reached the age of five, as they prompt too many awkward questions from their offspring. Steve Hornsey, General Manager of Watch, said: “Bedtime stories are supposed to soothe children and send them off to sleep soundly. But as we see in GRIMM, fairytales can be dark and dramatic tales so it’s understandable that parents worry about reading them to young children.” “As adults we can see the innocence in fairytales, but a five year old with an over active imagination could take things too seriously. Despite the dark nature of classic fairytales, as we see in GRIMM, good will triumph over evil and there is always a moral to the story.” The study also found two thirds of mums and dads try to avoid stories which might give their children nightmares. However, half of parents said traditional tales are more likely to have a strong moral message than a lot of modern kids’ books, such as The Gruffalo, The Hungary Caterpillar and the Mr. Men books. 31.Why don’t some parents want to read Rumplestiltskin to their kids? A. Rumplestiltskin is too long B. Rumplestiltskin is too difficult C. Rumplestiltskin forgives stealing D. Rumplestiltskin may have bad influence on Children 32.We can learn from paragraph 3 that Grimm is _____ A. a fairytales book B. a movie for children C. a play loved by children D. a drama based on traditional fairytales
4

33. The underlined word “soothe “in paragraph4 can be replaced by____ A. put down B. calm down C. take down D. come down 34. Which of the following may Steve Hornsey agree to? A. There is a moral to a classic fairytale B. Fairytales are dark C. Adults take fairytales too seriously D. Fairytales are not good for children’s sleep 35.What’s the author’s attitude towards traditional fairytales? A. Optimistic B. Not mentioned C. Casual D. Disapproving C Teary Joe was a boy with a special ability: he could make himself cry in less than a second. If he disliked something, or things became difficult, Teary Joe would not hesitate to put on a pitiful face and set great big tears running down his cheeks. In this way he managed to get practically everything he wanted, because no one could resist the pity inspired by his tearful little face. But one day, Teary Joe met Pipo. Pipo was asking people in the street for some change, in return for him helping them in any way he could. Pipo was very poor; he had no home and no family, so he made a living however he could. Even so, Pipo always had the biggest smiles on his face. Joe took to Pipo, so he decided to help him out in making some money. He went over next to Pipo, took off his hat, put it face-up on the ground, and started crying with the most pitiful of expressions. In a few minutes, Joe’s hat was full of coins and sweets, but when Joe offered all this to Pipo, Pipo declined. “I prefer deserving what I receive,” answered Pipo with his usual smile, “It’s much more fun making an effort to get things. Maybe I haven’t gotten everything I’ve wanted, but I’ve done a load of interesting things.” Teary Joe didn’t answer; he just walked sadly away. Joe had got everything he wanted, but he’d done practically nothing of interest the whole day. That evening, having returned home, Joe requested a delicious cake for his supper. When his mother said no, Joe tried to cry but, remembering Pipo and how joyful he was, he tried to get the cake in some other way. Joe spent the whole evening helping his mother to water the plants and organize the library books. In the end there was no cake. But that wasn’t so bad, because Joe discovered it had been much more fun doing all those things that evening rather than just sitting crying to get a piece of cake that, in the end, wouldn’t have been worth it. 36. According to the passage, Teary Joe ______________________. A. relied on others’ sympathy before B. was joyful in his life C. hated working hard D. was a naughty boy 37. Teary Joe sadly walked away because he _________________. A. considered that Pipo was very poor
5

B. realized he shouldn’t change his life style C. didn’t get delicious cake for supper D. got everything he wanted without delight 38. Joe’s attitude towards Pipo’s getting things by making efforts was _______. A. ridiculous B. faulty C. doubtful D. admirable 39. What can be inferred about Teary Joe? A. He doesn’t have home and is poor. B. He still prefers crying to get things. C. He built up true friendship with Pipo. D. He was profoundly influenced by Pipo. 40. The author wrote the passage to ask people to __________. A. receive things by crying more. B. get things by making an effort. C. have a biggest smile every day. D. help their mother every day D The first step in exercising for most people is determining whether or not they should. This is particularly true with anyone over thirty-five, especially if they have been heavy smokers. Likewise, young adults who have been very inactive should proceed slowly and with caution. A physical evaluation(评价) from a physician is recommended, preferably one that includes an exercise-stress test. While a person is exercising, a stress test detects cardiovascular(心血管的) problems that might not show up when the body is at rest. This is done by monitoring blood pressure, pulse rate, oxygen consumption, and the heart’s electrical activity while exercising. Whatever exercise program is selected, it is important to start with warm-up periods. These should include stretching exercises, jumping jacks, or active walking. The idea is to increase heart rate and circulation slowly without placing a sudden strain on the heart or the muscles that are starting to work. The next phase in developing an exercise program is to determine the amount of exercise that is enough to condition the muscles and cardiovascular system without excessively exhausting the body. This involves taking one’s pulse and finding one’s target zone. This target zone, or safe-training pulse rate, is established by subtracting one’s age from 220 and then taking 60 percent to 80 percent of that total. If you are just starting to exercise, 60 percent is recommended; 80 percent is recommended if you are already in good condition. 41. Who is the intended reader of the passage? A. a social worker B. a physician who is in charge of physical checkups C. any would-be sportsman
6

D. anyone who wants to take up exercise 42. What is NOT mentioned as a part of a stress test in Paragraph 1? A. watching the heart’s electrical activity. B. Examining the blood pressure. C. Observing oxygen consumption. D. Increasing blood circulation 43. The underlined word “excessively”probably means ____. A. slightly B. overly C. attentively D. physically 44. In order not to place much strain on the body, if you are a beginner and at the age of 45, the safe training pulse rate suggested would be ____. A.105 B.220 C.140 D.175 45. The author writes the passage mainly to recommend ____. A. that heavy smokers should quit smoking for the sake of their health B. that we should do warm-up periods either before or after doing exercises C. that young adults should live an inactive life instead of doing exercises D. that we should take up physical exercises according to our physical condition 第二节 信息匹配(共 5 小题,每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 五位外国人(Dick, John, Mary, Jane , Bob)想在北京游览,请根据他们各 自的情况,推荐相应的北京游套餐。请阅读下列相关信息和广告,并按照 要求匹配信息。 A.

阅读下面的短文,然后按照要求写一篇 150 词左右的英语短文。 As we all know, life is full of dreams and having a good dream is of great importance in our daily life. Without a good dream, people can't make progress; without a good dream, countries can't develop; without a good dream, the
9

world can't become so beautiful! And I hold the strong belief that everyone, whether he is old or young, poor or rich, junior or senior, does have a good dream! After all, dreaming is certainly a positive part of our life, and wishing for good things, however, costs nothing! What's more, it is important to fly our dreams, especially for those who are Senior 3 students. It is high time for them to fly their dreams. If they can't let dreams fly, the dream would just be a dream, not reality! Therefore, it is no wonder that so many people have a dream since their childhood. With a nice dream, China succeeded in hosting the 29th Olympic Games in 2008; with a nice dream, Hong Kong returned to the motherland peacefully in 1997; with a nice dream, Yuan Longping rids the world of hunger; with a nice dream, Michael Jordon becomes the most popular basketball star; with a nice dream, I can stand on this stage to compete in the final English speech contest. And with an aim of achieving success, I must do the best! So my good friends, if you want to realize your dream, please do not be afraid in face of difficulties or give up in face of failure nor lose your dream in face of pains. You must keep going forward bravely! Just fly your dream highly above the sky! [写作内容] 1.阅读短文后用 30 词左右概括短文的要点。 2.以“放飞梦想”为主题,以 120 词左右发表自己的看法,并包括以下 内容要点: (1)叙述自己或现实生活中中学生梦想成真的一件事; (2)结合自己的实际,谈谈你现在的梦想,并说明打算如何实现。 [写作要求] 1.在作文中可以使用亲身经历或虚构的故事,也可以参照阅读材料 的内容,但不得直接引用原文中的句子; 2.作文中不能出现真实姓名和学校名称。 [评分标准] 概括准确,语言规范,内容合适,篇章连贯。

Not only will this program help students improve their English, but also get them to know more about the culture of Jieyang so as to introduce Jieyang to foreign visitors .I am sure it will be well-received by the middle school students. I hope you can take my suggestion into consideration. Sincerely yours, Li Hua 第二节:读写任务 Dreams play an important role in our daily life and a good dream is the motivation to success. To realize a dream, one should learn to defeat difficulties through constant struggles as well as persistence. Like most people, there was a time when I dreamed of being an excellent student in my English after entering junior middle school, though my English was very poor then. To catch up with my classmates, I made up my mind to learn English well and made penfriends with some foreign students so as to practise my spoken English and improve my written English. Finally, I won the English Speech Contest this term, realizing my dream. Now, I hope that I can be admitted to a key university after graduation from middle school. Of course, whether my dream will come true depends on my personal efforts. I strongly believe that where there is a dream, there is hope and there is a way.
