Best wishes

We?ve shared so much together over our junior high school. I remember the

day when Brian and I found a wallet in the park. We waited there for hours to

get it back to its owner. Whatever we do in the future, we will always have

great memories of our time together. I wish you the best in everything you do.

Follow your dreams, my friends!

Kim We laugh, we cry, and sometimes we fight. I?ll never forget the time Steven

tried to move to the next level…by standing on a chair in the classroom. It

won?t be easy to forget all my friends in Canada. I?ll miss all of you. Be sure to

always stay in touch!

Jenny It?s time to move on to the next level. I still remember the day Mike and I

rowed boats in the rain. I?ll never forget Danny?s Desk-Cycle. Did you really

think it would work, Danny? Good luck with your inventions in the future!

The students often gather together in small, closed groups. If you are not part of a group, it can be difficult for you to be accepted. This is especially true if you can?t speak to the members of the group in their language.

This was the situation Sam faced each day as he went to class. Sam and his family moved to France last month. Before he arrived, he knew there would be many difficulties. But they were even worse than he had imagined.

Every lunch hour, after arriving at his new school, Sam sat alone in the dining hall. He looked at all the different groups of students around him. But he had no way to let them know that he was a good person. He simply couldn?t find the right words to reach them.

Sam knew he had to find a way to change the situation. Somehow, he had to adapt (适应) to this new environment. He did a little research on the Internet and discovered that smiling is a universal language – it is understood everywhere.

One morning, as Sam was walking by a group of students, he smiled at them. A boy in the group smiled back at him. For Sam, that was a good beginning. Later, he noticed the boy coming towards him in the hall with a warm smile on his face. Sam returned the smile.

Soon the boy asked Sam to join him and his group of friends for lunch.

Although Sam wasn?t able to say much in French, everyone smiled and laughed. Before he knew it, Sam had a group of friends, and they all wanted to help him learn French.

24.Sam and his family ______ last month.

A.moved to France

B.started a new school

C.accepted a new group

D.taught people their language

25.What helped Sam to change his situation?

A.Sitting alone in the dining hall.

B.Doing a research on the Internet.

C.Walking by a group of students often.

D.Learning French in a language school.

26.What?s the pas sage mainly about?

A.The importance of friendship.

B.Difficulties in a new country.

C.The ways to make friends.

D.The power of a smile.

A world without time or number

The Piraha are an Amazonian tribe (部落) of hunter-gatherers who live deep in the Brazilian rainforest. The tribe has kept their culture undamaged for centuries, although there are now only around 200 left. The Piraha, who communicate mainly through hums and whistles, have interested ethnologists (人种学者) for years, mainly because they have almost no words for numbers. They use only three words to count: one, two, and many.

We know about the Piraha thanks to an ex-hippy, Dan Everett, now a professor of language, who spent seven years with the tribe in the 1970s and 1980s. Everett discovered a world without numbers, without time, without words for colors and without a past tense. Their language, he found, was not just simple grammatically; it only had several sounds and they were different between the men and women. For the men, it has just eight consonants (辅音) in the words and three vowels (元音); for the women, who have the smallest number of speech sounds in the world, it has seven consonants and three vowels. To people from other places, the language sounds more like humming than speech. The Piraha can also whistle their language, which is how men communicate when hunting.

The Piraha can?t write, have little common memory, and no idea of decorative art. In 1980 Everett tried to teach them to count: he explained basic numbers to a group who wanted to learn the skills needed to trade with other tribes. After eight months, not one could count to ten; even one plus one was beyond them. The experiment seemed to support Everett?s theory: the tribe just couldn?t understand the meanin g of number.

The Piraha?s inability to count is important because it doesn?t seem to support Noam Chomsky?s famous Theory of Universal Grammar, which holds that the human mind has a natural ability for language, and that all languages share a basic rule structure, which help children to understand ideas such as number. One of Chomsky?s coworkers has recently gone on an expedition with Everett to study the tribe. We do not yet know if he will change his theory after visiting the Piraha.

27.The Piraha have interested ethnologists for years mainly because ______.

A.their culture is kept undamaged

B.they are a tribe of hunter-gatherers

C.they have almost no words for numbers

D.they live deep in the Brazilian rainforest

28.What?s the main idea of Paragraph 2?

A.What the Piraha?s language is like.

29.What can we infer from the last paragraph?

A.The Piraha have a natural ability for language.

B.The Piraha?s children understand numbers well.

C.Noam Chomsky won?t change his theory for sure.

D.Not all languages seem to share a basic rule structure.

For many years doctors have warned us about the dangers of stress (压力) and have given advice about how to cut down our stress levels. Everyone agrees that long-term stress, for example having to look after someone who has a serious illness, or stressful situations where there is nothing we can do, for example being stuck in (陷入) a traffic jam, is bad for our health and should be avoided whenever possible. However, some experts now believe that certain kinds of stress may actually be good for us.

Dr Marios Kyriazis says that what he calls …good stress? is beneficial to our health and may, in fact, help us stay young and attractive and even live longer. Dr Kyriazis says that …good stress? can strengthen our n atural defenses which protect us from illnesses common among older people, such as Alzheinmer?s and heart problems. He believes that …good stress? can increase the production of the proteins that help to repair the body?s cells (细胞).

According to Dr Kyriazis,running for a bus or having to work to deadline are examples of …good stress?, that is situations with short-term or low stress. The stress usually makes us react quickly and effectively, and gives us a sense of achievement –we did it! However, in both these situations, the stress damages (损害) the cells in our body or brain and they start to break down. But then the cells? own repair system repairs the damaged cells and removes harmful things that can gradually cause disease. In fact, the body?s respon se is greater than is needed to repair the damage, so it actually makes the cells stronger than they were before.

…As the body gets older, this self-repair system of the cells starts to slow down?, says Dr Kyriazis. The best way to keep the process workin g efficiently is to …exercise? it. This means having a certain amount of stress in our lives. Other stressful activities that Kyriazis recommends as being good stress include packing your suitcase in a hurry to reach the airport on time or shopping for a dinner party during your lunch break.

So next time your boss tells you that she wants to see that report finished and on her desk in 45 minutes, don?t feel nervous, just think of it as …good stress? which will have benefits for your long-term health.

30.Most people agree that long-term stress ______.

A.shouldn?t be avoided

B.is not good for our health

C.can protect us from illnesses

D.can cut down our stress levels

31.The underlined word “recommends” in Paragraph 4 probably means ______.

A. decides

B. disagrees

C. refuses

D. suggests

32.According to Dr Kyriazis, ______ can be called as …good stress?.

A.running to catch a bus

B.being stuck in a traffic jam

C.taking big exams every day

D.looking after someone seriously ill

33.What could be the best title for the passage?

A.Long-term stress.

B.Short-term stress.

C.Get stressed, stay young.

D.Good stress and bad stress.

Vancouver is on the west coast of Canada, on the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world – a city where you can go skiing in the morning, and go sailing in the afternoon.

A little over a hundred years ago, only a few hundred people lived there. Now it has a population of nearly 1,800,000, and is Canada?s third largest city. North American Indians were the first people to live in Vancouver. Now the population comes from all over the world, including northern and southern Europe, China, India, Japan and Vietnam. Over half the children in the city?s schools are learning English as a s econd language.

Vancouver has water all around it and has a lot of amazing views. It is a city full of colorful flowers and people call it “the village on the edge of the forest”! You can go skiing for 5 months of the year in the high mountains, which is only half an hour?s drive from the city. The city is also famous for its whales. You can take boat trips to Vancouver Island and watch the

whales.

Stanley Park is the largest city-centre “wild” park in North America. It has an exciti ng aquarium with 9,000 fish and sea animals.

There are also a lot of other things to do in Vancouver. Go to the Lookout at the top of the Harbour Centre, and have a bird?s eye view of the city, the sea and the mountains. Or visit Science World on Quebec Street where you can do amazing things like blowing big square bubbles, feeling a frozen flower, or touching a rock that you can see in the dark!

The weather in Vancouver is pleasant all year as it never goes too cold or too hot. The summer months of June, July and August are usually driest and sunniest with temperature up to 30℃. There is not much snow in the winter, but it rains a lot! November, December and January can be very wet and grey.
