           Chuck Wall teaches management and human relations at Bakersfield College. He walked into class one day and told his students that their homework was to perform one act of random(任意的) kindness. His students did not understand the homework and didn’t know what to do, but the professor would not answer their questions. He encouraged his students to work it out for themselves.
           One week later, the students entered the classroom excited to share their stories. One student told of giving away blankets to the homeless. Another reported on helping a dog to find its owner, and another student had been trying to find a long, lost friend. Students were energized (给予活力) by the homework assignment and wanted other people to be kind too. With the support of local businesses, the students made stickers to put on cars that invited people to do something kind for others. They sold the stickers and decided to donate the money to a center for the blind---not surprising as Professor Wall is blind.
          Since then, similar kindness activities have been started in schools around the world. Many schools organize a Random Acts of Kindness Week, around November 13th, to celebrate World Kindness Day. Some schools use each day of Random Acts of Kindness Week to perform a different kind act, such as making a new friend, helping someone, doing community service, or raising money for a charity. Students learn to consider other people and thank about how small actions can make the world a better place.
    61. The professor’s homework was to ask his students _________.
    [     ]
    A. to write about kindness.
    B. to be kind to strangers
    C. to spend time helping other
    D. to go out to raise money 
    62. We learn from the passage that ________.
    [     ]
    A. Chuck’s students are not clever enough
    B. the students didn’t do Chuck’s homework
    C. Chuck Wall is an unusual teacher
    D. no students enjoyed Chuck’s homework
    63. It is certain that _________.
    [     ]
    A. the students got good grades in Chuck’s class
    B. kindness activities are not widely accepted
    C. Chuck Wall was not good at designing homework
    D. the students only helped people they knew

    [     ]
    A. to deal with difficult things
    B. to do great things every day

         Be as Good as Your Words Japanese Prime Minister (首相) Junichiro Koizumi on April 22 apologized (道歉)
    for his country's past in the wars. 
         "In the past, Japan did great damage (破坏) and brought suffering to the people of many countries, especially
    those in Asia," he said.
         He was talking to 100 Asian and African leaders at a meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia.
         China and Japan are having a hard time these days. China is angry at Japan because Japan doesn't face its
    past.
         For example, Japan started the war with Chian in the 1930s and 1940s. But one of its new history textbooks
    says China started the war!
         Chinese Chairman Hu Jintao met Koizumi on April 23. Hu said China wanted to be friends with Japan. But he
     also told Koizumi that Japan needed to use history as a mirror (镜子) and face the past.
         China and Japan are both important countries in the world .The two leaders agree a good friendship will be
    good for both countries.
         The two countries sell a lot of goods to each other .Last year ,China overtook the US to become the biggest
    trading partner (贸易伙伴) with Japan.
         Koizumi's apology is a good start. Now, it's important for Japan to match its words with action.

    job a little easier. Are you ready? Right. Now listen carefully, as you might be this week's lucky winner.
        Although the person who wrote the music was born in Italy, he spent most of his   5   in Spain. Have you
    got that? On to the second point: there is also a famous play which has the same title as this music and which
    is usually performed (演出) in the open air in summer. Any   6   yet? I should warn you that it's not that easy.
    Now for the next point: when this piece of music was first performed, many people in the audience (观众) got
    up and   7  . They thought the music was terrible and said it was a waste of their money. It's amazing really,
    when you think how   8   it is today. And now for the last point: part of his music has been used for an
    advertisement which you can see on   9   and in a lot of magazines. I'm sure when you hear the music, you'll
    know what the advertisement is  10 . I'm not going to tell you what product it is, because that would almost
    give you the answer!
        So, that's four things to remember. If you can give us the answer, please ring 8937224. And the music is

         Two magazines recently listed The Best Cities to Live in. Here is one of them.
         HONG KONG, CHINA.
         Why live in Hong Kong? Here are two reasons.
         The city: This lively city - once a small fishing village - is today an international business centre. It is
    an interesting mix of East and West, old and new. Modern skycrapers are next to small temples. Popular
    nightclubs are close to traditional teahouses. Busy crowds fill the strees at all hours of the day. But outside
    the city, there are parks for walking and relaxing.
        The food: Hong Kong is famous for its wonderful native dishes (try the dim sum). There's also food
    from Eruope, North America, and other parts of Asia.
         Minuses: This small city has a large population. How many people live in Hong Kong? Almost seven
    million! That's why housing is often very expensive. Traffic and air pollution are also a problem.
    1. What used Hong Kong to be?
        __________________________________________________
    2. What East and old things can travellers see inside the city?
        __________________________________________________
    3. Hong Kong food is another example to show the mix of East and West, isn't it?
        __________________________________________________
    4. Why is housing very expensive in Hong Kong?

    5. How are the traffic and air in Hong Kong?

    阅读理解。
        China news, Xichang, Oct 19-The Chang'e No. 1 moon probe satellite took its name after a young and
    beautiful goddess in a traditional Chinese legend who lived in her palace on the moon with her pet rabbit.
    Compared with the legendary fairy maiden, the satellite, with a weight of more than 2 tons, might appear
    large and hefty. However, scientists believed that the satellite could fly to the moon in a graceful way during
    the upcoming launch, just like what the fairy maiden did as described in the legend.
        The main tasks facing Chang'e No. 1 are to take the 3D pictures of the moon and to explore the moon
    surface environment. Compared with manned spacecraft Shenzhou 5 and Shenzhou 6, Chang'e No.1 is
    a small satellite. While scientists need to add four boosters to send Shenzhou 5 and Shenzhou 6 into space,
    the launch of Chang'e No. 1 will not need any booster at all. Since Chang'e No. 1 satellite is a small device,
    the loading capacity of the Chang'e satellite launch will be much lighter. In sending large satellites, the total
    weight of the satellite and the carrier rocket can be as many as 400 tons or more. However, Chang'e No.1
    and its carrier rocket, Long March 3A, weigh only 250 tons.
        The Chang'e No.1 satellite will fly around the earth for a couple of times before it shifts to the moon orbit.
    After that, 13 monitoring devices that are placed on the earth will adjust its flying positions in space. By then,
    people might see that the moon probe satellite will turn swiftly in space.
    1. Why is the moon probe satellite named Chang'e?

    2. What carried Chang'e to space?

         New York State has passed the USA's first state law banning (禁止) motorists talking on cell phones.
    The ban will begin on November l, although drivers caught using cell phones will be given only warnings
    during the first month.
         First-time violators (违法者) will face a $100 fine. A second-time call for a $200 fine and every violation
    after that will cost $500. At least a dozen localities have established (制定) bans, starting in 1999; and 40 states
    have had bans proposed but not passed.

         There are about 115 million cell phones in use in the United States and more than 6 million in New York
    State.
         "To think that I'm not going to use the cell phone when at the same time I can still use my laptop (手提电脑), I can still read a paper, and I can still change my pants while driving at 65 mph. I think there's just
    something wrong," an official said.
         Other critics (批评) noted other things like eating, drinking coffee and doing make-up while driving. They
    suggested that the ban include a broader range of things.

    阅读理解。
           BEIJING (AP)-The government is teaching the people "the right way to spit." A college teaches
    students the right way to sit. Two years before holding the Olympic Games, people across Beijing are
    on and all-out drive to mind their behavior.
           Visitors are often surprised to see people in China spit phlegm onto the ground.
           Changing all that before the 2008 Summer Games is "important in providing a cultural and historical
    legacy to the world for China," said Beijing city official Zhang Huiguang.
           "We will work with newspapers, radio stations, TV stations, the Internet and mobile telephones to
    teach people the right way to spit, said Zhang.
           Zhang said her office is organizing a "behavioral training" activity that teaches people to line up for
    buses and turning off mobile phones during meetings.
           But spitting is the most serious problem. "You have to spit into a piece of paper or a bag, and then
    put it into a dustbin," she explained. Zhang said her office has organized a small group of volunteers who
    are going to Beijing's streets to hand out small "spit bags".
           "Public spitters already face fines up to 50 yuan (about $ 7 Cdn)," Zhang said. 
           Others are taking a softer way.
           Lu-chin was born near Beijing, married an American and spent 10 years in the U.S. She said her
    heart sank when she and her family returned to live in her homeland and she saw the spitting, littering
    and cutting in line. It caused her to start the Pride Institute, a private group that showing the great pleasure
    of being more polite.
          "I'm trying to wake up a sense of decency. I know it's there. I saw our beautiful scenery covered
    with plastic bags. Sometimes I think I'm the first one to see this and say, 'Why do you treat our country
    like a dustbin?' I'm just trying to wake them up and show them they can stop the bad behavior."
           Still others are trying to improve things in a far more traditional way.
           "All of China is looking forward to the Olympics," said Zhang Hui, head of training at the Beijing
    Courtesy College.
           "It's really important to improve courtesy before the Games", Zhang said.
           "Everyone knows how to walk, stand and sit," she said. "But we teach them how to do it in a good
    way." 
            That means things like sitting, back straight, on the "front one-third" of a chair, she said, "Women
    sit with their knees and feet together. Men may sit with their feet slightly apart. If you cross your legs,
    you keep the toe of your lifted foot pointing downward." 
            "Every day we teach the students about Confucius and Laozi. Every country has a basis for its
    culture." she said. "Confucius and Laozi are our country's basis."
    1. government 政府                   2. Confucius 孔子             3. behavior 行为
    4. cultural and historical legacy 文化历史遗产                     5. official 官员

    1. Besides (除了) Zhang Huiguang's way to change people's bad behavior, how many other ways have been
        mentioned in the passage?

    阅读理解。
        A giant panda from the Beijing Zoo has been saved by a transfusion of blood from two black bears. But
    it's still under special care, according to the Beijing Zoo.
        Yong Liang, two years old, is the first giant panda raised from birth in the zoo. Last month zoo keepers
    found the panda was suffering from serious anaemia (贫血症), calling for urgent (紧急的) blood transfusion.
        The best way, according to the zoo's experts, to save Yong Liang from anemia would have been to
    transfuse blood from another panda. But it was the breeding (reproducing) (繁殖) season for giant pandas,
    making such a transfusion very difficult.
        But the experts found that there exists (存在) a close consanguinity (血缘) between giant pandas and black
    bears, and so they decided to try to take blood from black bears in the zoo and transfuse it to Yong Liang.
        With the help of hospitals and the Beijing Blood Donor Station, they made an experiment which proved that
    the red blood cells (细胞) in the blood of black bears can be used.
        On the afternoon of February 15th, the first red blood cell transfusion was given to the giant panda, from
    600 ml of black bear blood. Immediately the young panda started to recover.

          Beldon and Canfield are two seaside towns, not far from each other. Both towns have many hotels, and in
    summer the hotels are full of holiday-makers and other people.
          Last August there was a fire at the Seabreeze Hotel in Beldon. The next day, this news was on page two of
    the town's newspaper-THE BELDON POST:
                                                Fire at Seabreeze
         Late last night firemen (消防队员) hurried to the Seabreeze Hotel and quickly
    put out a small fire in a bedroom.The hotel manager said that a cigarette (香烟)
    started the fire. We say again to all our visitors, "Please don't smoke cigarettes in
    bed." This was Beldon's first hotel fire for five years.

                                   Another Beldon Hotel Catches Fire
         Last night Beldon firemen arrived just too late to save clothing, bedclothes and
    other things at the Seabreeze Hotel. An angry holiday maker said, "An electric
    lamp (电灯) probably started the fire. The bedroom lamps are very old at some
    of these hotels. When I put my bedside light on, I heard a funny noise from the
    lamp." We are glad to tell our readers that this kind of accident (事故) does not
    happen in Canfield.
          THE CANFIELD TIMES gave the news in these words on page one:
          What are the facts, then? It is never easy to find out the exact truth about an accident. There was a fire at
    the Seabreeze Hotel last August, that is one fact. Do we know anything else? Yes-we know that firemen went to
    the hotel. Now what do you think of the rest of the "news"?

    D. there was a small fire at the Seabreeze Hotel
    4. Why isn't it easy to find out the exact truth about the fire?

         Gina, who is thirteen years old, got first prize in the "Young Cook of the Year" competition and is now
    writing her own recipe (烹饪) book for kids. "I want it to be fun to read and easy enough for children to use,"
    she says. Gina learned by observing (观察) her father, who's also good at cooking, in the kitchen. She wants
    to encourage other children to cook because"everyone needs to eat, so it's a skill that will always be useful!"
         Fourteen-year-old Bren used to love running until he had a serious car accident three years ago. He lost part
    of one leg and didn't even expect to walk again. Now he's an athlete who has recently completed a marathon.
    "After my accident I wanted to give up," he says. "But now I'm happy to be alive and able to continue running."
        Helga has always been good at science, but she thought it was too difficult to become an inventor. Then
    she heard about an accident that had happened when a car hit a train in her town. "That gave me an idea,"
    says the clever sixteen-year-old girl. It took her over a year to invent a special machine that tells car drivers
    when a train is coming. One company is already interested in selling it, so it may be in the shops soon!

    根据短文内容,判断正(T)误(F)。
         These two letters appeared in a newspaper. Both writers have their own ideas on zoos.
         Zoos Do a Good Job
         It is good to keep animals in zoos. I know a lot of people think it is wrong to keep animals in zoos.
    However, I believe that zoos have many good points.
         Firstly, zoos are places for people to see many different kinds of animals from all over the world. Without
    zoos, most people would never see a real bear or tiger.
         Secondly, zoos look after the animals very well. The animals are always given food and cleaned regularly.
    In the wild, it is not always possible for an animal to find food, so sometimes it goes hungry. But animals kept
    in zoos never go hungry.
         Thirdly,zoos protect the animals. They offer them safety in danger of becoming extinct (灭绝). But zoos
    give these animals a chance to live. Without zoos, there would be fewer kinds of animals in the world.
                                                                                                                                          Maria Smith
          Zoos Are Unnatural 
          In Maria's letter, she says that zoos are good for animals. I am afraid that zoos are not good for animals,
    and they are only good for people.
          It is unnatural (非自然的)and unfair to keep wild animals in cages. Most animals are kept in cages. They
    are too small for them. In the wild, these animals would travel freely. In zoos, they can't do this. This is why
    the bears and tigers always look so sad.
         Most cages are not very clean either. It is true that zoos give the animals food regularly. But this is not
    natural. Wild animals are used to looking for their own food. We should treat animals in the same way that
    we treat other people with respect.
         Would anyone be happy if you don't let him go out of his home? Would Maria like to have lots of people
    standing outside her flat looking at her? No, she wouldn't. And animals don't like it either.
                                                                                                                                     Philip White
    (     )1. Maria and Philip have quite different ideas on keeping animals in zoos.                 
    (     )2. In Maria's opinion, a real bear or tiger can only be seen in zoos.                      
    (     )3. Maria thinks that animals live better in zoos than in the wild.                         
    (     )4. According to Philip, if cages are big and clean enough, tigers and bears will look happy.
    (     )5. Maria and Philip both agree that zoos are good for people.                              
    (     )6. In the two letters, they are discussing how to make animals in zoos happy.

    阅读理解。
         As many as one in five US teenagers have some degree of hearing loss (丧失), according to researchers.
    They say the problem is growing.
         "Teenagers really don't pay attention to how much noise they are exposed to (接触)," Josef Shargorodsky
    of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston told Reuters."Often people won't notice it, but even very little
    hearing loss may influence language development," said Shargorodsky, one of the researchers.
         The study compared surveys from the early 1990s and the mid-2000s. Each included a few thousand
    teenagers. In the first survey, about 15 percent of teenagers had some degree of hearing loss. Some 15 years
    later, that number had risen by a third, to nearly 20 percent.
         "This certainly is big news," said Alison Grimes, an ear doctor."Hearing loss is very common in old people,"
    Grimes said, but she added that it was worrying to see it happen in the younger age group.
         In babies and young children, hearing problems are known to slow language development. The science is
    less clear for teenagers, but it is easy to imagine how being hard of hearing could influence learning, said
    Grimes.
         The reasons for the rise are still unclear. When researchers asked teenagers about noise exposure on the
    job, at school or from activities, for example—the teenagers didn't report any change. But Shargorodsky said
    that might not be true."We know from before that it is difficult to ask this age group about noise exposure—
    they underestimate it." Few people would call it noise when they listen to music on their MP3 player, for
    example. "There is a difference between what we think is loud and what is harmful to the ear," said Grimes.
         Although it's not clear that the MP3 players cause teenagers' hearing loss, Grimes said it was still a good
    idea to turn down the sound and take short breaks from listening.
    1. The writer advises teenagers _____.
    A. to turn the sound down
    B. to stop using MP3 players
    C. to be clear about the problem
    D. to report the change in hearing loss
    2. The underlined sentence "they underestimate it" means _____.
    A. their love for music prevent them realizing the harm
    B. their hearing loss is happening without being noticed
    C. they think music can be taken as noise to some degree
    D. they think it's harmful sometimes although it's not loud
    3. Which of the following is true according to the passage?
    A. Hearing loss may lead to slow language development.
    B. Hearing loss in old people is as common as in young people.
    C. Researchers have already found some causes of hearing loss.
    D. Teenagers know MP3 is harmful, but they can't stop listening to it.
    4. What is the best title for the passage?
    A. A word short and simple
    B. A report by teenagers
    C. A message loud and clear
    D. A letter from MP3 users

    a park in Qingdao, there are more than 20,000 sakura trees.

         A recent report says about 18% of China teenagers can have problems with their minds. Some students
    become worried because they have to study very hard. Others have trouble getting on well with people like
    their parents and classmates.

    badly in his lessons. He was afraid of exams. When he looked at the exam paper, he couldn't think of anything
    to write.   
         Another student, a 15-year-old girl called Wu Yan from Guangdong often argued (争吵) with her
    classmates even her parents because of some different ideas. She became so angry with them that she
    started  to cut her finger with a knife.
          However, many students who have problems won't go for advice or help. Some think they will look
    stupid if they go to see a doctor. Others don't want to talk about their secrets. In order to solve the teenagers'
    problems, here is some advice:
         ● Talk to your parents or teachers often.

    of elephants and I realized that the only enjoyable way to make a trip around India was on an elephant.
    Reporter: What did you do next?
    Chris: I flew to New Delhi and started looking for an elephant, I needed an elephant trained to carry people.
    I didn't know anything about elephants, so I asked an expert (专家) for help. He taught me how to ride an
    elephant. He also helped me find an elephant.
    Reporter: How long did it take to find a suitable elephant?
    Chris: Not too long. I bought a female elephant called Tara for about 6, 000 dollars.

    there was a lot of heavy rain during the first week and we got very wet!
    Reporter: What happened when you reached Sonepur?
    Chris: My plan was to sell Tara. But I was very fond of her. I couldn't take her back to Britain and I didn't
    want to sell her at the market. I happened to meet some people who wanted an elephant for their national park
    in southern India. I knew that Tara would be safe with them, so I gave her to them. I was very sad to say

    阅读理解。
         Valentine's Day just passed and it made me remember a middle school student I know who may be in love.
         I think there are two ideas of middle school "love". One is temptation: Girls dress beautifully and act giggly.
    Boys are popular and attractive.
         Then there is the other kind: attraction that may or may not be love. The student I know is like that. She
    has a friend called John whom she has feelings for, but she can't decide if it's love or friendship. In her words:
         "I wonder whether he is my ideal boyfriend. I want someone cool and kind who holds the same values as
    me. He isn't any of these. So sometimes I wonder if I'm only attracted and deciding to break up with him now.
    But he is attractive, and he isn't foolish. He may not be an "A" student, but he's intelligent and clever. I wonder
    if I only pity him for the hard times he has had. He knows how to make me laugh. We both sing and act. We
    had several classes together last year. He can be very sweet."
         I'm moved by this because it's hard to find a student who has such real thoughts. It seems that
    everyone thinks only of how "hot" someone is, without acting more wisely.
         For some people, Valentine's Day might mean nothing. But for others, it could mean a lot. What about you,
    young man?
    注:(1) Valentine's Day 情人节 (2) temptation 诱惑 (3) ideal理想的 (4) values 价值 (5) wisely明智地

    B. holds the same values as the girl
    C. agrees with the girl's words
    D. doesn't care about the girl's thoughts
    3. The word "hot" in the reading means ______.

    阅读短文,根据短文内容回答问题。
         Recently, an Internet game has become popular among young office workers and students. On the
    Internet people can "farm" on a piece of "land" and "grow", "sell" or even "steal" "vegetables","flowers" and
    "fruits". They can make some e-money and buy more "seeds"," pets" and even "houses". Of course, all those
    are not true, you know, they are on the net!
         I interviewed some young people. Here are their opinions.
         A parent says she doesn't quite understand why they are so mad about the childish games. Maybe they
    are just not confident enough to face the real world.
         Many junior high school children say they enjoy putting some "bugs" in her friends "gardens" and they've
    become closer because of the game. Having fun together is the most exciting thing.
         Most young office workers think their work is too much for them and wish to relax for a while. Besides,
    it gives them the exciting experience of being a "thief".
         But almost all the teachers say it's just a waste of time. Teenagers playing the game spend so many hours
    on it that they can not pay attention to their study.
    1. Is it true that the Internet game has become popular?

    Chris:  I flew to New Delhi and started looking for an elephant, I needed an elephant trained to carry people.

    elephant. He also helped me find an elephant.
    Reporter: How long did it take to find a suitable elephant?
    Chris: Not too long. I bought a female elephant called Tara for about 6, 000 dollars.
    Reporter: Can you tell me about the journey?
    Chris: Tara and I set off from New Delhi a week later. We were going to Sonepur in northern India. There is
    a big elephant market there and I could sell Tara easily. And what a ride! Elephants can travel at about 6 miles
    an hour and Sonepur is more than 1, 200 km away. It took us 64 days to complete the journey.

    there was a lot of heavy rain during the first week and we got very wet!
    Reporter: What happened when you reached Sonepur?
    Chris: My plan was to sell Tara. But I was very fond of her. I couldn't take her back to Britain and I didn't
    want to sell her at the market. I happened to meet some people who wanted an elephant for their national park
