  D.Choose the best answer and blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.

  Passage One

  I talk to strangers for a living and love the challenge of getting their stories published in

  newspapers.I've been married for years,but until six months a90,I could be a typical absent—minded husband.Often l was just nodding when l was supposed t0.When my wife asked,

  “Did you even hear what I just said?”1 would defensively say,“0f course I did!”

  In January,I began to lose my voice.Doctors told me I needed surgery,or my throat

  would be permanently damaged.Total silence would be required for the first few weeks of my

  recovery.

  Two hours after the surgery,my eyes filled with tears as my two-year-old son looked

  puzzled because l wouldn’t answer his questions.1 wanted to talk but couldn’t.Luckily,I'd

  recorded myself reading some of his favorite books.That would come in handy the next couple

  of weeks.

  When I got home,I noticed a“side effect”:as my wife talked to me to keep up my

  spirits,1 wasn’t just hearing her;1 was listening to her.Over the next few weeks,I didn’t want

  to miss a word she said,I began to hear sweetness in her voice.It had never left.I'd just

  stopped noticin9.I found myself understanding her better on topics I'd previously dismissed as

  “things I just don’t get as a guy”.I also realized my son wasn’t just talking nonstop but that he

  often had thoughtful things to say.Even while walking my dog in the woods near our home,I

  began hearing pleasant patterns in birdsongs.Before my surgery,I'd have spent those walks on

  my phone.

  After several weeks,1 was fully recovered.Conversation in our house is better now,not

  because I'm talking more.I’m just listening better and becoming less and less surprised that I

  like what I hear.

  produced by any plant.Its unusual contents also make it unique in the seed world—it consists

  of both“meat’’and“water”inside.The coconut meat is the white substance with which we are

  all familiar,as it is used extensively for cooking a.nd flavorings;the coconut water is a white and

  sweet liquid.

  Portuguese(葡萄牙的)explorers gave the nut its name in the l 5 th century.referring to it

  as COC0,meanin9“ghost”in their language.The outside appearance of coconuts reminded

  them of a ghost’s face,and the tree has had that name ever since.

  The coconut has varied uses.It is used to make various cooking oils for fast.food

  restaurants around the world to make diet materials.The coconut fluid is a favorite drink in hot

  climates,providing a cool and refreshing beverage right off the tree.This water is also used by

  manufacturers of various sports drinks.Even the shell itself has many uses,including animal

  food and fertilizer.

  Yet the coconut is also useful in many ways that have nothing to do with food.Coconut oil

  is used for cosmetics(化妆品),medicines,and so on.Dried coconut shells are used in many

  countries as a tool for shining wood floors.The shells are also used for shirt buttons,and are

  commonly found on Hawaiian clothin9.They are even used for musical instruments and bird

  houses.

  Passage Three

  Most students choose“Homestay”accommodation when they study abroad:others select

  Homestay even if they are not on a study visit.Statistics show that it’s a form of accommodation gaining in popularity all the time.

  But what is Homestay?And what makes it so popular?

  Homestay means living with a family,or“host family”as we say.There are three ways of

  doing it:

  ·choose to learn English in a language school near to your Homestay location:

  ·have your English classes in the house with a member of the family who is a qualified

  teacher;

  ·select not to have classes at all when you visit——a popular choice if you want to do the

  tourist thing for example.

  Even in their busy summer period the organizations that arrange the Homestays will always

  try to place you with the most suitable host family to match your requirements.Placement(安

  置)organizations think about location,interests,language level,eating requirements,allergies

  (过敏)and other requests you may have.

  Though prices vary according to your needs,good quality Homestay accommodation can be

  relatively economical--and although you may be charged an extra amount of money if you want your Homestay in or near the city centre.Even if you stay further out,you can expect your

  journey into the centre not to exceed 30 minutes·

  Not onlY does Homestay accommodation represent value for money, it also glVes you an excelient opportunity to practise English with your host family.This is a very imPortant extra for students who like to speak as much English as possible. But if you plan to leam English,why

  not have vour English classes in your host family.9 There’s no better way to learn English than

  this—the Derfect combination of learning and accommodation combined with the Cultural experience !

  Passage Four

  Using 1ess energy around the home is easier than you might think,saving you money while

  creating a heahhier,more comfortable living space for you and your family. Changing a few old habits can make an impact on your energy bill, your comfort and the environment.Here are

  some handy tips to make your house more energy-efficient.

  Lower the heat

  If vour home has adjustable central heating,lowering the room temperature eVen sllghtly

  can make a difference. You may not feel it, but your wallet will. It is even more adVisable to control temperatures at different times of the day·

  Hang clothes out to dry

  If the weather allows it,head outside and dry your laundry on a clothesline.The sunlight

  will help eliminate bacteria and dust. While clothes dryers get the job done faster,they also use up energy.By hanging your clothes out you’11 be cutting greenhouse gases by about three kilograms per load.

  Take advantage of natural light

  Installing large windows on the northern side of your house can help you make use of sunli ght,s natural warmth. To stay c00l indoors on hot summer days,install blinds(百叶窗) to block the heavy sun.Put your desk near the window,then you don’t need a lamp in the

  daytime.

  Wrap(裹)your pipes

  Be sure your hot—water pipes are properly wrapped.In an average home,heating water

  accounts for more than one—quarter of the energy bill.Why let warmth go to waste before it reaches you? 、

  Choose the right size for appliances(家用电器)

  When the time comes to replace appliances,select those that are both energy—efficient and of the appropriate size for your needs.Don’t buy bigger ones just because you can.

  A.Replacing time. B.Reasonable price.

  C.Good quality. D.Proper size.

  Passage Five

  As we recently discovered,there is a Stepmother’s Day,though it is not on any official

  holiday calendar.S0,it would be safe to assume that there is a similar day for stepdads,t00.

  Right?Well,it depends on what you read.A Google search brought up posts that say,for

  example,“It’s on father’s day--father’s day is for fathers,step—fathers and people who are like fathers to you-it’s a day for making father figures feel special.”Further searching found a Stepfather’s Day Facebook page that says,“The unofficial Stepfather’s Day is the fourth Sunday of June.”Unfortunately,as of the publishing of this article,only 30 people have“liked”the page.Considering that studies show 3.3 million men,or l l.1%of U.S.fathers,live with at least one stepchild,that’s only a drop in the ocean.

  It’s interesting to note that there is a National Grandparents’Day.President Jimmy Carter

  signed it into law in 1978.Law! While grandparents are undoubtedly special people in our children’s lives,they are often seen as the most loving family members.But what about the

  stepparents? The stepparents are the ones who are often the outsiders,the ones who have to

  endure the hurtful“You’re not my dad!”or“You’re not my mom!”And yet they never give

  up.They do their best to overcome the inherent challenges of stepparents and be role models for their stepchildren.These unsung(未被颂扬的)family heroes deserve“official”days of

  honor.Perhaps if we are loud enough,President Obama,who had a stepfather himself,will sign

  into law National Stepmother’s Day and National Stepfather’s Day.

  Are you with me?Follow me and get your voice heard.How cool it would be if we could

  make this happen!

  5 2.What does the underlined word“that’’in Paragraph l refer to?

  A.Father figures who are equally honored in the U.S.

  B.30 people who support Stepfather’s Day on the Facebook page.

  C.3.3 million men who live with at least one stepchild in the world.

  D.1 1.1%of U.S.fathers who live with at least one stepchild in the U.S.

  53.What did President Jimmy Carter sign into law in l978 7

  A.The National Grandparents’Day. B.The National Grandchildren’s Day.

  C.The National Stepparents’Day.D.The National Stepchildren’s Day.

  54.Which of the following is closest in meaning to the word“inherent”in paragraph 2 9.

  A.Unbelievable. B.Tough. C.Lastin9.D.Inevitable.

  55.What is the reason for setting an official holiday for stepparents.9

  A.Because they love their role as stepparents.
