“Yes, he should be praised and we must write a letter to the company,”said a second passenger. “That's right,”another lady said, “I wish a newspaper reporter were here so that more people could learn from this conductor.” Just then a gentleman who looked like a teacher turned to the conductor and said , “Excuse me, but can I know your name, please?

It was a winter morning, just a couple of weeks before Christmas 2005. While most people were warming up their cars, Trevor, my husband, had to get up early to ride his bike four kilometers away from home to work. On arrival, he parked his bike outside the back door as he usually did. After putting in 10 hours of labor, he returned to find his bike gone.

The bike, a black Kona 18 speed, was our only transport. Trevor used it to get to work, putting in 60-hour weeks to support his young family. And the bike was also used to get groceries(食品杂货),saving us from having to walk long distances from where we live.

I was so sad that someone would steal our bike that I wrote to the newspaper and told them our story. Shortly after that, several people in our area offered to help. One wonderful stranger even bought a bike, then called my husband to pick it up. Once again my husband had a way to get to and from his job. It really is an honor that a complete stranger would go out of their way for someone they have never met before.

People say that a smile can be passed from one person to another, but acts of kindness from strangers are even more so. This experience has had a spreading effect in our lives because it strengthened our faith in humanity(人性)as a whole. And it has influenced(影响)us to be more mindful of ways we, too, can share with others. No matter how big or how small, an act of kindness shows that someone cares. And the results can be everlasting.

46. Why was the bike so important to the couple?

A. The man’s job was bike racing.

B. It was their only possession.

C. It was a nice Kona 18 speed.

D. They used it for work and daily life.

47. We can infer from the text that ____________.

A. the couple worked 60 hours a week.

B. people were busy before Christmas

C. the stranger brought over the bike

D. life was hard for the young family.

48. How did people get to know the couple’s problem?

A. From radio broadcasts.

B. From a newspaper.

C. From TV news.

D. From a stranger.

49. What do the couple learn from their experience?

A. Strangers are usually of little help.

B. One should take care of their bike.

C. News reports make people famous.

D. An act of kindness can mean a lot.

50. Which one do you think is NOT TRUE according to the text?

A. The couple will never steal bikes in revenge.

B. The couple will try their best to help others in trouble.

C. Trevor bought a new Kona immediately after someone stole his old one.

D. The couple got some help from several people in their area.

Jimmy is an automotive mechanic, but he lost his job a few months ago. He has good heart, but always feared applying for a new job.

One day, he gathered up all his strength and decided to attend a job interview. His appointment was at 10 am and it was already 8:30. While waiting for a bus to the office where he was supposed to be interviewed, he saw an elderly man wildly kicking the tyre of his car. Obviously there was something wrong with the car. Jimmy immediately went up to lend him a hand. When Jimmy finished working on the car, the old man asked him how much he should pay for the service. Jimmy said there was no need to pay him; he just helped someone in need, and he had to rush for an interview. Then the old man said, “Well, I could take you to the office for your interview. It’s the least I could do. Please. I insist.” Jimmy agreed.

Upon arrival, Jimmy found a long line of applications waiting to be interviewed. Jimmy still had some grease on him after the car repair, but he did not have much time to wash it off or have a change of shirt. One by one, the applicants left the interviewer’s office with disappointed look on their faces. Finally his name was called. The interviewer was sitting on a large chair facing the office window. Rocking the chair back and forth, he asked, “Do you really need to be interviewed?”Jimmy’s heart sank. “With the way I look now, how could I possibly pass this interview?”he thought to himself.

Then the interviewer turned the chair and to Jimmy’s surprise, it was the old man he helped earlier in the morning. It turned out he was the General Manager of the company.

“Sorry I had to keep you waiting, but I was pretty sure I made the right decision to have you as part of our workforce before you even stepped into the office. I just know you’d be a trustworthy worker. Congratulations!” Jimmy sat down and they shared a cup of well-deserved

It was a fearless mother's love that made Lisa forget what she faced. She took up an old hatchet (斧头)from the ground and struck the snake with all her strength.

One...two... With the hatchet, Lisa hit the snake again and again, but she felt as if she were striking a mass of solid(坚固的) rubber. The little boy's voice and breath were getting weaker and weaker. Lisa's heart was broken and she nearly went mad.

Suddenly Lisa put aside the hatchet and threw herself on to the snake, opened her mouth and bit into its back, as if tearing a tough steak(牛排). Lisa was really mad.

A small piece of flesh was bitten off. Lisa picked up the hatchet again and hit at the wound in the snake's back madly and savagely.

第一节阅读表达(共5小题;每小题2分,共10分)

阅读下面短文,并按照题目要求用英语回答问题(请注意问题后词数要求)。

A nurse of 78 this weekend celebrates 60 years of walking the wards - and she has no plans to retire.

Jackie Reid was 18 when she started work in 1953 - when the National Health Service(NHS) was just five years old -- and is believed to be the oldest nurse in Britain.

The diabetes(糖尿病) specialist had to retire at 65 but returned as a nurse within two weeks and still does up to four seven-and-a-half hour shifts(轮班)each week.

Mrs Reid said: “Nursing is hard if you do it correctly but I love my job. Working for the NHS has been my life. I have no other hobbies because I have worked all my life.”

Jackie has worked at a number of different hospitals--including one in Scotland.

Her specialist field has been diabetes for the past 40 years. She retrained after her 12-year-old daughter Michelle developed the disease. She currently works at Southend Hospital, Essex.

Over the last 60years she has treated tens of thousands of patients.

Jackie believes nursing should be protected from government cuts. She said: “There're lots of things I would say to the government. If you are going to get good care you have to have the resources(资源), you can't do it without enough money. They shouldn't need the cuts that there are in the NHS. It's hard now because there's a shortage of staff."

Jackie has lived alone in Grays, Essex, since her husband died three

years ago.

The couple have two daughters Michelle, 50, and Karen, 54. Jackie added: “My youngest daughter worried about me - she doesn't

think I should

work as much as I do. I constantly say ‘don't worry about me, I'm fine ’, but she never believes me. I don't like the thought of

giving it up and will try to keep going forever.”

61. In which year was the NHS set up? (within 2 words)

62. What does Jackie think of nursing? (within 6 words)

63. When did Jackie retrain in the field of diabetes? (within 6 words) 64. What does Jackie wish the government to do? (within 7 words) 65. Why does Jackie's daughter worry about her? (within 8 words)
