第三部分:阅读理解(共 15 小题,每小题 2 分,满分 30 分)

阅读下列短文,然后从各题所给的四个选项(A、B、C、D)中,选出最佳选项。

A

Nowadays everybody seems to think that they know English. Many people speak it but few

speak it really well. Practice is necessary in speaking English well.

Reading is also one of the things that will help you to s peak English better. Read whenever you

can and whatever you like! Read papers and Internet sites that you like in English every day. Then,

you will see that the number of known words is increasing and you are able to speak with more

skills. Then you will have made the foundations (基础) and a good basis of English. It is not good to

stop and get stuck there.

Going to England or an English – speaking country is a good choice, but many people cannot

afford it. If you cannot go, reading and speaking with your friends will also help you to practice

your English. However, I think it is very good to visit some English – speaking country to see and

test your knowledge in everyday life. You will understand the everyday usage of the language in

its natural environment. There your level of English is going to improve even faster. You ability to

speak English is better. Nothing can match the excitement and happiness when a native speaker

tells you that your English is very good!

Finally, in order to speak English well, you must be persistent (坚持的) and do it every day.

It is like playing the piano. Pianists play it every day and so should you. Include English in your

life and you will see where it is going. Practice, practice! Read, write and improve your language

skills and you are on you way when you will be able to speak it with more and more confidence!

56. Which of the followin g would be the best title for the passage?

A. How to Improve Your Language Skills

B. How to Speak English Well

C. Speaking English

D. Practice, Practice!

57. What does the writer suggest a bout reading?

A. Trying to improve your vocabulary.

B. Keeping on reading when you have time.

D. A native speaker’s praise.

B

I travel a lot, and I find out different "styles" (风格) of directions every time 1 ask "How can

I get to the post office?"

Foreign tourists are often confused (困惑) in Japan because most streets there don't have

names in Ja pan, people use landmarks (地标) in their directions instead of s treet names. For

example, the Japanese will say to travelers, "Go straight down to the corner. Turn left at the big

hotel and go past a fruit market. The post office is across from the bus stop."

In the countryside of the American Midwest, there are not usually many landmarks. There are

no mountains, so the land is very flat; in many places there are no towns or buildings within miles.

Instead of landmarks, people will tell you directions and distances. In Kansas or Iowa, for example,

people will say, "Go north two miles. Turn east, and then go another mile."

People in Los Angeles, California, have no idea of distance on the map; they measure

distance in time, not miles. "How far away is the post office?" you ask. "Oh," they answer, "it's

about fiv e minutes from here." You say, "Yes, but how many miles away is it?" They don't know.

It's true that a person doesn't know the answer to your question sometimes. What happens in

such a situation? A New Yorker might say, 'Sorry, I have no idea." But in Yucatan, Mexico, no one

answers "I don't know." People in Yucatan believe that "I don't know" is impolite, They usually

give an answer, often a wrong one. A tourist can get very, very lost in Yucatan!

61. When a tourist asks the Japanese the way to a certain place they usually _________

A. describe the place c arefully

B. show him a map of the place

C. tell him the names of the streets

D. refer to recognizable buildings and places

62. What is the place where people measure distance in time?

A. New York. B. Los Angeles.

C. Kansas.

D. Iowa.

63. People in Yucatan may give a tourist a wrong answer ________

A. in order to save time B. as a test

C. so as to be polite

D. for fun

64. Which sentence is true according to the text ?

A. Th ere is no street names in Japan.

B. There is no landmarks in the countryside of American.

C. People in Yucatan always give wrong answers when asked the way.

D. People in Los Angeles measure distance in time, not miles when asked the way.

65. What can we infer from the text?

A. It's important for travelers to understand cultural differences.

B. It's useful for travelers to know how to ask the way properly.

C. People have similar understandings of politeness. D. New Yorkers are generally friendly to visitors.

C

One of the best-loved American writers was William Sydney Porter, or O.Henry. From 1893

he lived with his family in a house in Austin, Texas, which is now a museum. Visitors to Austin

can see the house. It was saved from destruction (破坏) and turned into a museum in1934. The

museum is a good way to learn about the interesting life of the American w riter.

William Porter rented this house in Austin and lived there with his wife Athol and daughter

Margaret for about two years. Many objects in the museum belonged to the Porters. Others did not.

An important piece in the room is the original photograph over here. It was taken there in the

house about 1895. The piano there goes back to the 1860s. His wife took lessons on it when she

first moved to Austin.

Porter did not start his career as a successful writer. He worked at a farm, land office and bank.

He also loved words and writing. The museum has a special proof(证明) of Porter’s love of

language --- his dictionary. It is said that he had read every word in that dictionary.

Later William Porter was forced to leave Austin because he was charged(指控) with

financial wrongdoing at the bank and lost his job. Because he was afraid of a trail (审判), he left

the country secretly. But he returned because his wife was dying. After her death, he faced the trial

and became a criminal. He served three and a half years in a prison in Ohio.

William Porter would keep his time in prison a secret. But there was one good thing about it.

It provided him with time to write. By the time he was freed, he had published 14 stories and

became well known as O.Henry.

Porter later moved to New York City and found great success there. He published over 180

stories in the last eight years of his life.

66. O.Henry’s house in Austin has been well kept up till now so that ____.

A. Americans can explore their history

B more visitors will be attracted to Austin

C. visitors can learn about O.Henry’s life

D. it can show the way of life in the 1860s

67. What do we know about the piano in the house?

A. It was hated by Porter’s daughter.

B. It has a long history of about 150 years.

C. Porter’s wife gave music lessons on it.

D. Porter usually created music on it.

68. How does the museum prove (证明) Porter was fond of language?

A. With a dictionary he used.

B. With the records they keep.

C. Using the books they wrote.

D. Using the photograph they keep.

69. Why did Porter escape from Austin?

A. He didn’t want to lose his job.

B. He didn’t want to make trouble.

C. He meant to save his wife’s life.

D. He was charged with a crime.

70. From the last two paragraphs we know that _______.

A. Porter became famous suddenly

B. Porter spent his time in prison writing

第二节:阅读表达(共 5 小题,每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) Many students want to find friends on the Internet as a way of practising their language skills
and learning more about new cultures. Traditional pen pals were the primary source for such contacts, and students could write each other letters. With the Internet, finding friends has become much easier, and such relationships are called key pals.
However, care and consideration should be given when finding friends on the Internet: ◎Search the Internet for reputable(有信誉的) services. Look for reviews(评论) of such sites to learn more about other students’ experiences. Don’t join a service until you have done your research. ◎Check to see if you can use a nickname(绰号) instead of __________, to protect your identity (身份). ◎Never give personal information to anyone, including your home address, phone number, and birthday. ◎Stop contact with others if you feel uncomfortable with the topics of conversation. Again, if you protect your identity, this will be easier to do. Tell your teachers, parents, or even local law enforcement if problem arise. ◎Try to use the language you are studying in the classroom in your communication(交流) with others. ◎Ask proper questions that will also help you learn about other cultures. Remember that someone’s personal experience might help you to understand a whole culture. You have to talk to many different people, and this will get you started. 8 1.
