In the early 1990s, Madan Kataria, an Indian doctor who worked in Mumbai, became interested in the growing body of scientific evidence showing that laughter is extremely beneficial to human health. He made a decision that more laughter was needed to improve health and deal with the stress of modern living. In 1995, while writing an article for a health journal, Dr. Kataria discovered many modern scientific studies describing the benefits of laughter on the human mind and body. In particular, he was impressed by Norman Cousins’ book Anatomy of an Illness and the research work by Dr. Lee Berk. Then he began to field-test the effect of laughter on himself and others. Starting with just five people, on March 13, 1995, at a public park in his neighborhood, Dr. Kataria started the first laughter club. They laughed together in the park to the amusement of bystanders, and the small group quickly grew to more than 50 people within a few days. In the early meetings, they stood in a circle with one person in the center to tell a joke or a funny story. Everybody enjoyed themselves and felt good for the rest of the day. Howev er, after two weeks, their jokes and stories ran out. Some complained that it would be better to discontinue the club than to continue without any jokes. Dr. Kataria asked the club members to give him one day to develop a breakthrough that would solve the problem. That night, Dr. Kataria reviewed his research and finally found the answer. Our body cannot differentiate between pretend and genuine laughter. In fact, both produced the same effect. The next

morning, the results were amazing. For some, the make-believe laughter quickly turned into real laughter. Soon the group was laughing like never before. The hearty laughter that followed lasted for almost ten minutes. This was the birth of Laughter Yoga. 25. We can infer from Paragraph 2 that Madan Kataria _____. A. used to be serious B. was a man of action C. found his life stressful D. was an expert in laughing 26. After a short period of time, the club members _____. A. didn’t know what to talk about B. doubted whether laughter would help C. couldn’t find any place to get together D. showed less interest in Dr. Kataria’s club 27.

A. people may laugh a lot after taking a new type of medicine B. genuine laughter works better than pretend laughter C. laughing a lot is able to help us fight off illness D. pretend laughter is also helpful to our health 28. What would be the best title for the text? A. Laughter clubs in India B. Benefits of Laughter Yoga C. The origin of Laughter Yoga D. Laughter — the best medicine C

When we hear of dangerous diseases, cancer and heart disease are often what first comes to mind. Recently, a virus called Ebola has reappeared in Guinea (a country in West Africa), killing 62 people so far. It leads to viral hemorrhagic fever, which is characterized by high fever and internal bleeding etc. Ebola can kill 90% of those infected, especially in underdeveloped societies like those in Africa. Ebola is named after the Ebola River, where it was first discovered in 1976. There are five different types of the Ebola virus, each named after where they first happened: Sudan, Ivory Coast, Reston, Bundibugyo, and Zaire. The deadliest of the five, Zaire, was responsible for the 2012 outbreak, and is believed to be attacking Guinea. Ebola is naturally found in fruit bats (果蝠), which pass on the virus to other animals by biting or sucking on (吮吸) their blood. Humans who are suffering from the Ebola infection might have touched the bodily fluids of the infected animals. Once infected, a human becomes a carrier of the deadly virus. Since we live in an interconnected world, where the situation in one country can affect us all, the influ ences of Ebola are huge: damaging trade relations, affecting foreign visitors, and weakening entire countries. Already the Guinea virus is spreading fast with a few cases spotted in Conakry — the capital of Guinea, far away from the origin of the virus. It is feared that the disease may have already reached neighboring Liberia and Sierra Leone, too. Unfortunately, there are no disease-specific treatments for Ebola. Healthcare workers only supply the infected people with water to keep them in good condition. Since there have been many cases of nurses catching the disease from patients, they are forced to wear strict protective cl othes, and in some cases, not even allowed to get close to the affected. The fact that there is no cure for the Ebola virus is what makes the outbreak a challenging one to control. 29. The news of Ebola in Guinea is mentioned to _____. A. make a brief summary
7

B. introduce the topic of the text C. compare Ebola with cancer D. show the latest study of viruses 30. What can we learn about Ebola? A. It is a newly discovered virus. B. It is the most dangerous virus in the world. C. It was named after where it first happened. D. It could cause immediate death for anyone infected. 31. What is mainly described in Paragraph 3? A. What the Ebola virus is. B. The influences of Ebola. C. The treatments for Ebola. D. How the Ebola virus spreads. 32. Which of the following does the author probably agree with? A. Ebola is a highly infectious virus. B. Ebola is now very common in Guinea. C. Those with a fever must be infected by Ebola. D. Females are more easily to be infected by Ebola. D An interpersonal communication class is one of those courses similar to health or physical education that students often brush off as just another one of those school required classes that are easy to pass. Well, should these interpersonal communication classes be required for all high school students?

8

After having such a subject as part of the curriculum (课程) in my Communications College major, I believe that t his course should be required. Even though it is true that much of the material is common sense to most, there is likely a handful of students who do not know the standard guidelines for communicating interpersonally, either because their family never raised them with the knowledge or they had no place to practice the rules. To be interpersonally effective in communicating, one must know how to behave confidently in certain situations, how to settle a confl ict, and how to moderate behavior and choice of speech among different people or places. If schools required this course in high school, I firmly believe that the graduation as well as college entry percentages of each class would rise rapidly. My interpersonal communication classes required myself and the other st udents in my class to team up in groups of two or three on various occasions and practice certain verbal exchanges. The professor would give us scenarios (剧本) and we would have to act out what we would do and say if that situation happened. We performed exercises where we had to read back and forth with our partner practicing different tones of voices and analyze the change in impression each made on the receiving party. Many people, again, blow interpersonal communication classes off as just a filler class to keep kids in school for an entire day, but I don’t think these people realize how important effective communication skills are when entering into the grown-up, independent, college or employment world. Being able to communicate well has a huge effect on one’s self-esteem ( 自尊 ), ability to make friends, competence in an employment position, and the healthiness of a romantic relationship. 33. The underlined part “students often brush off” can be replaced by “_____”. A. students are really fond of B. students don’t take seriously C. students feel confused about D. students have never heard of 34. What were the author’s interpersonal communication classes like? A. Students showed no interest and played games. B. Students performed exercises in small gro ups.
9

C. Students were too shy to play out scenarios. D. Students were often asked to watch videos. 35. The author’s purpose of writing the text is most likely to _____. A. advertise C. persuade B. entertain D. instruct

范文: The Season I Like Best If you ask me which season I like best, my answer is spring. On the one hand, spring is the most beautiful season in a year because many kinds of flowers start to come out again, which are colorful. All the places around me are covered with green, making my life full of energy. On the other hand, I like spring because I can enjoy Spring Festival. It is known to us that the Spring Festival is the most important festival in China, which comes in January or February. On that day, people eat delicious dumplings and wish a good luck. What’s more, I can get lucky money from my parents and buy some books which I like.
