He sat down and the old lady set down a glass of water and a plate of bread in front of him and at the other three places of the table. I realized he was expecting three others. Nearly an hour later, the old man was still sitting there alone. Although he was eating something, the glasses of water and plates of bread at the other three places were still there. I said to the old lady, “Sad that his company did not arrive and he had to eat alone.” “He always eats alone. His company never turns up,” she said. “Many years ago, there were four handsome, strong young men. Once a week they would sit at that table and have lunch together because it was Friday. They had been friends since school days and were always together. Then the war broke out and they went off to fight. After the war only Nikolas returned.

Call it the piggy bank plan. There are lessons in that historic coin-savings container (容器). Any difficult task seems easier when started from baby steps. If you wished to climb a 12,000-foot mountain, and could do it a day at a time, you would only have to climb 33 feet daily to reach the top in a year. If you want to take a really nice trip, to collect the $ 15,000 cost, you have to save $3.93 a day. If you drop that into a piggy bank and then once a year put $1,434 in a savings account, you will have your trip money. When I was a child, my parents gave me a piggy bank to teach me that, if I wanted something, I should save money to buy it. We connect piggy banks with children, but in many countries, the little containers are also popular with adults. Europeans see a piggy bank as a sign of being rich. Around the world, many believe a gift of a piggy bank on New Year’s Day brings good luck and wealth. Why is a pig used as a symbol of saving? Why not an elephant bank, which is bigger and holds more coins? In the Middle Ages, before modern banking, skillful workers made these inexpensive containers from an orange-colored clay (黏土) called “pygg,” and people then saved coins in pygg jars. As “pygg” pronounced much like the Middle English word “pigge” meaning “pig”, gradually, the two words changed into the same pronunciation. Once a clever worker made a pygg jar in the shape of a pig, pleasing children and adults. The piggy bank was born. In the past, you had to break the bank to get the money, bringing in a sense of seriousness into savings. While piggy banks teach children the value of saving, adults often need to relearn childhood lessons. Think about the things in life that need a large sum of money – college education, weddings, starting a business, buying a home, and fun things like great trips. So when you have money, take off the top 10%, put it aside, save and use it wisely. B.She thought Nikolas was a poor man. D.She thought Nikolas was so funny.
29.What is the piggy bank plan? A.Setting a goal before making a travel plan. B.Putting aside a little money regularly for future use. C.Having determination even when doing small things. D.Climbing a mountain a little a day before reaching the top. 30.Why did the writer’s parents give him a piggy bank as a gift? A.To help him develop the habit of saving. C.To please him with the latest fashion. 31.The piggy bank was first ______ . A.a pig-like toy for children C.an animal-look dish container 32.The last paragraph talks about ______ . A.the enjoyment of taking a great trip C.the difficulty of starting a business children D People fell in love with Elizabeth Taylor in 1944, when she starred in National Velvet-the story of Velvet Brown, a young girl who wins first place in a famous horse race. At first, the producers of the movie told Taylor that she was too small to play the part of Velvet. However, they waited for her for a few months as she exercised and trained—and added three inches to her height in four months! Her acting in National Velvet is still considered the best by a child actress. Elizabeth Taylor was born in London in 1932. Her parents, both Americans, had moved there for business reasons. When World War II started, theTaylors moved to Beverly Hills,California, and there Elizabeth started acting in movies. After her success as a child star, Taylor had no trouble moving into adult roles and won twice for Best Actress: Butterfield 8(1960) and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) B.the importance of managing money D.the seriousness of educating B.a worker’s tool D.a cheap clay B.To encourage him to climb mountains. D.To teach him English pronunciation.
Taylor’s fame(名声)and popularity gave her a lot of power with the movie industry, so she was able to demand very high pay for her movies. In 1963, she received $1 million for her part in Cleopatra—the highest pay received by any star up to that time. Elizabeth Taylor is a legend of our time. Like Velvet Brown in National Velvet, she has been lucky: she has beauty, fame and wealth. But she is also a hard worker. Taylor seldom acts in movies any more. Instead, she puts her time and efforts into her businesses, and into helping others—several years ago, she founded an organization that has raised more than $40 million for research and education. 33.The producers didn’t let Taylor play the part of Velvet at first because they thought she _______. A.did not play well enough C.was small in size much interest 34. Taylor became Best Actress at the age of_______. A.12 D.34 35. The underlined word “legend” means _______. A.a story which is popular in the world B.a famous person who is successful and respected by other people C.a famous actress who doesn’t like acting D.a rich and kind-hearted person who made money all her life 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。 If you want to beat the heat, fo11ow these tips to keep your house coo1 in summer.

What you should keep in mind is that most people feel nervous like you. Just take it easy. Here are some suggestions which I think may be helpful. First, you should be prepared and understand the subject of your speech completely. The more familiar you are with the subject, the less nervous you will be. Besides, look at your nervousness as a positive thing, which can give you the energy to deliver your speech in an emotive way. Last but not least, as the old saying goes, the confidence is the first secret of success. So do have faith in yourself. Hope these can benefit you. May you succeed in the competition！ Yours,
