ited dozens of countries in recent years, I think there is something more adventurous, specific and romantic about visiting an island country. Take a look at the following three island countries, they probably will arouse your desire to visit at least once in your lifetime. Malta Malta is a beautiful southern European country in the Mediterranean Sea, which has a rich history and culture. There are amazing sky-high cliffs to climb, splendid temples to explore and lots of wonderful places to go diving. In fact, there are plenty of interesting things to see and to do in Malta and this island country has something for everyone. The historic part of Malta is shown in its incredible architecture, great walled cities, and many underground tunnels. Fiji Fiji has plenty of surprises for any adventurous travelers. It is famous for the world’s best surf scenes, and many surfing enthusiasts travel to Fiji yearly to ride the great waves. Well, if surfing is not for you and you love sitting on the beach and relaxing, hiking or seeing breathtaking waterfalls, Fiji is certainly the best island country to visit. Maldives Not only is Maldives one of the most beautiful island countries, but it is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations. Situated in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Maldives is made up of a series of ancient coral reefs that grow up along the sides of ancient volcanoes, with fascinating beaches and luxurious resorts. 21. In Malta, you can _______. A. hike in the hills B. ride the great waves C. see breathtaking waterfalls D. explore temples and tunnels 22. What is the special feature about Fiji? A. There are sky-high cliffs to climb. B. You can take a yacht free in this country. C. It is a surfing enthusiasts’ favorite island country. D. lf you once visited it, you wouldn’t like to go there again. 23. If a newly-married couple are looking for the best honeymoon destination, their choice will be ________. A. Malta B. Fiji C. Maldives D. an island in the Mediterranean
B With more recognition than Halloween and less than Christmas, Valentine’s Day as an imported festival faces a dangerous situation in China, where it’s caught between forces of tradition and fashion. Valentine’s Day has a natural enemy in China. And it is not the Chinese equivalent, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh month on the lunar calendar, usually around half a year away from Feb. 14. It is the Spring Festival, also known as the Chinese New Year, that will influence the Feast of Saint Valentine. The real disagreement between East and West probably took place over a century ago, when China’s door was forced open by Western powers and Chinese scholars supported westernization as a means to strengthen our nation’s ability to compete. The introduction of the solar calendar and Western measurements was both an acknowledgment of their influence and an effort to be accepted by the world order. For a full century, we have had two systems running in parallel. When it comes to the eventual outcome, practicality usually beats all other concerns. Laws can help, such as the three traditional festivals of Tomb Sweeping, Dragon Boat and Mid-Autumn gaining legal status in 2008 and giving every Chinese citizen a day off, but laws cannot push what people have no feelings for. Therefore, the celebration or boycott of imported holidays or homegrown ones should be no cause for worry. If they are irrelevant, no social media will change the public’s mind; and if they are accepted, there must be a need which they happen to satisfy. Since we have no global Qin Shihuang to force one system on every country, we can always rely on a dual （双重的） approach by which we share with the outside world on one hand but preserve our own ways of life on the other. 24. What does the author think about Valentine’s Day in present China? A. It meets with a natural enemy. B. It is better known than Christmas. C. It strongly attacks Chinese culture. D. It is more popular with young people. 25. The underlined word “equivalent” in the first paragraph refers to ________. A. the Dragon-boat Festival B. the Spring Festival C. the Mid-autumn Festival D. the Chinese Valentine’s Day 26. According to the author, the leading factor to decide what to celebrate is ________. A. current laws B. people’s needs C. public media D. age-old tradition 27. The author believes that ________. A. the conflict between the East and the West will last long B. Chinese festivals are to be paid more attention to in years C. both Chinese and foreign systems of festivals can co-exist in China D. this cultural shock is normal and will be received by more people in the future C Instagram is a fast, beautiful and fun way to share your life with friends and family. Take a picture or video, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, and then post to Instagram—it’s that easy. You can even share to FaceBook, Twitter and more. It’s a new way to see the world. So many
photos of food are contained on Instagram—now a pop-up diner in London is taking advantage of this new trend by letting people settle the bill for their meals simply by uploading photos of their dishes to social networks. I always thought people’s taking pictures of their food was kind of silly, but at this new pop-up restaurant in the UK, I’d probably do it too. “The Picture House” is the world’s first pay-by-photo restaurant. You order, click a photo of the food, share on Instagram and eat for free! The restaurant belongs to frozen food giant Birds Eye, who came up with the idea to cash in on people’s addiction with photographing food and sharing the pictures online. They conducted a survey and found out that more than half of the British population regularly took pictures of their meals. So they realized it was a better way to advertise their new dining range. The pop-up diner was open in SOHO, London for three days in May, and is now moving to other major UK cities. They serve two-course meals that customers don’t have to pay for, if they photo and Instagram it. The restaurant is a part of Birds Eye’s “Food for Life” campaign, a new marketing project that aims at changing the way people look at frozen food. “Taking photos of food enables people to show off and to share their mealtime moments—from the everyday to the special,” said marketing director Margaret Jobling. The reaction to the Picture House has been great so far. And the pay-by-picture concept has proven to be an effective way. Alternative payment methods are actually gaining popularity among a lot of businesses. Last year in a cafe in Germany customers pay by how much time they spend there, not by what they eat. 28. From the description in the passage we can see Instagram is _______. A. a restaurant in which meals are free B. a new marketing strategy of a restaurant C. the name of a company to collect food pictures D. an application software to share photos or videos 29. What the Picture House does is actually ________. A. an ad to expand its popularity B. a reward to its regular customers C. an effort to raise the price of their frozen food D. a method trying to change British people’s type of dining 30. What can be inferred from the passage? A. The pay-by-picture concept has received a great reaction. B. Meals are free if you send your pictures to the Picture House. C. The pop-up diner was open in SOHO, London for three days in May. D. There will be many more payment methods besides paying meals by photos in Britain. 31. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. Pay by Picture. B. The Picture House. C. No Picture, No Meal. D. New Dining Style.
D Have you ever wondered that we parents are the true fighters in the college-admission wars? We are pushing our kids to get good grades, take SAT preparatory courses and build resumes so they can get into the college of our first choice. In our eyes, a degree from Stanford or Princeton is the ticket for life. We see our kids’ college background as something showing how well or how poorly we’ve raised them. But we don’t realize we are selfish. We think more about ourselves than the kids. It’s true getting into college has generally become tougher because the number of high school graduates has grown. We suffer great anxiety; we worry there won’t be enough honors to show off. Fearful parents urge their children to apply to more schools than ever. We hold the belief that graduates of best universities must enjoy more success because they get a better education. All that is seemingly acceptable—and mostly wrong. “We haven’t found any convincing evidence that a prestigious university（名牌大学）matters,” says Ernest T. Pascarella of the University of Iowa, co-author of “How College Affects Students”, an 827-page report of hundreds of studies of the college experience. According to some studies, graduates of prestigious universities do earn much money. But even this seems like just a coincidence. Kids count more than their colleges. Getting into Yale may mean intelligence, talent and ambition. But there are many other things that are equally important. The reason is that so many similar people go elsewhere. Getting into college isn’t life’s only competition. In the next competition, the results may change. Princeton economists Alan Krueger studied admissions to one top Ph. D. program. High scores on the GRE helped explain who got in; degrees of prestigious universities didn’t. So, parents, lighten up. America is a competitive society; our kids need to adjust to that but too much pushiness can be destructive. The very ambition we place on our children may get some into Harvard but may also set them up for disappointment. They may have been so accustomed to being on top that anything less disappoints them. 32. Parents are the true fighters in the college-admission wars, probably because ________. A. they make more preparations than their children B. they decide which university fits their children best C. they think more about themselves than their children D. they care more about the college-admission results than their children 33. The writer believes that in the present USA ________. A. a top college means a bright future B. children suffer greater anxiety now than in the past C. being admitted to college has become more and more difficult D. children should apply to more schools than ever to enter a top college 34. What is the meaning behind the sentence “kids count more than their colleges”? A. Continuing education is more important to a person’s success.
B. A person’s happiness should be valued more than their education. C. What kids learn at college cannot match job market requirements. D. Kids’ actual abilities are more important than their college background. 35. What does Krueger’s study suggest? A. Connections built in prestigious universities may be kept long after graduation. B. Degrees of prestigious universities do not guarantee entry to Ph.D. programs. C. Getting into Ph.D. programs may be more competitive than getting into college. D. Graduates from prestigious universities do not care much about their GRE scores. 第二节： （共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 The Internet has opened up a whole new on-line world for us to meet, chat and go where we’ve never been before. But just as in face-to-face communication, there are some rules of behavior that should be followed online. 36 . Imagine how you’d feel if you were in the other person’s shoes. For anything you’re about to send: ask yourself, “Would I say this to the person’s face?” If the answer is no, rewrite and reread. Repeat the process till you feel sure that you’d feel comfortable saying the words to the person’s face. If someone in the chat room is rude to you, your instinct is to fire back in the same manner. __37 . You should either ignore the person, or use your chat software to block their messages. If it is caused by a disagreement with another member, try to fix the situation by politely discussing it. Remember to respect the beliefs and opinions of others in the chat room. 38 . Offer advice when asked by newcomers, as they may not be sure what to do or how to communicate. When someone makes a mistake, whether it’s a stupid question or an unnecessarily long answer, be kind about it. If it’s a small mistake, you may not need to say anything. Even if you feel strongly about it, think twice before saying anything. Having good manners yourself doesn’t give you license to correct everyone else. 39 . At the same time, if you find you are wrong, be sure to correct yourself and apologize to those who you have offended. 40 . The exception is that you know the person very well, and you are both comfortable with sharing personal information. Otherwise don’t. A. But try not to do so. B. Everyone was new to the network once. C. If you decide to tell Someone about a mistake, point it out politely. D. Some people speaking rudely or making mistakes online is natural and common. E. The basic rule is simple: treat others in the same way you would want to be treated. F. lf you want to send short messages to others online, be sure to say something polite first. G. It is not good manners to ask others personal questions or inquire about their private affairs. 第二部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1．5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，掌握其大意，然后从 41～60 各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出 最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。

I can still remember the first day of the summer camp. I came to my bedroom by myself. When I opened a door, I saw a girl with short hair seating in a chair with a book in her hand. She must be a quiet girl who liked reading, I thought myself at the time. After we said hello to each other, other girl came in with a big noise. Her name was Rose. She was so outgoing and humor that both Cherry and I couldn’t help laughing at her words. Then we had studied and had meals together, and became good friends. I can’t forget the days when we spent together no matter where we are in the future.
