When I was six, Dad brought home a dog one day, who was called “Brownie”. My brothers and I all loved Brownie and did different things with her. One of us would walk her, another would feed her, then there were baths, playing catch and many other games. Brownie, in return, loved each and every one of us. One thing that most touched my heart was that she would go to whoever was sick and just be with them. We always felt better when she was around.

One day, as I was getting her food, she chewed up(咬破)one of Dad?s shoes, which had to be thrown away in the end. I knew Dad would be mad and I had to let her know what she did was wrong. When I looked at her and said, “Bad girl,” she looked down at the ground and then went and hid. I saw a tear in her eye s. Brownie turned out to be more than just our family pet, she went everywhere with us .People would stop and ask if they could pet her. Of course she?d let anyone pet her. She was just the most lovable dog. There were many times when we?d be out walking a nd a small child would come over and pull on her hair. she never barked(吠) or tried to get away.

Why do people smoke? One reason is that people become addicted to(对……有瘾)cigarettes. The addictive substance in cigarettes is nicotine. When people smoke,the nicotine goes right into the blood stream and makes people relaxed. A smoker?s body becomes used to the nicotine and if he stops smoking he feels nervous. Many smokers try to give up smoking,but because of the addiction to nicotine they feel so uncomfortable they often find it too hard to do so. Another reason is that people only enjoy smoking. Having a cigarette for many people means taking a break. For some people smoking becomes part of certain social rituals(礼节). For example,the cigarette after dinner. Lots of people enjoy smoking because it provides something to do with their hands. Reaching for a cigarette,lighting it,flicking the ashes is especially comfortable in situations where a person feels nervous.

Many people also like the taste of tar(焦油)in cigarettes. However,it is the tar that causes cancer. While governments and health experts have tried to get people to give up smoking completely,cigarette manufacturers(制造商)have tried to keep selling them by producing cigarettes with less tar. Many people in Western countries have welcomed these cigarettes since they find it hard to give up smoking,but want to reduce the danger to their health.

How I Turned to Be Optimistic

I began to grow up that winter night when my parents and I were returning from my aunt's house, and my mother said that we might soon be leaving for America. We were on the bus then. I was crying, and some people on the bus were turning around to look at me. I remember that I could not bear the thought of never hearing again the radio program for school children to which I listened every morning.

I do not remember myself crying for this reason again. In fact, I think I cried very little when I was saying goodbye to my friends and relatives. When we were leaving, I thought about all the places I was going to see-—the strange and magical places. I had known only from books and pictures. The country I was leaving never to come back was hardly in my head then.

The four years that followed taught me the importance of optimism, but the idea did not come to me at once. For the first two years in New York I was really lost—having to study in three schools as a result of family moves. I did not quite know what I was or what I should be. Mother remarried, and things became even more complex for me. Some time passed before my stepfather and I got used to each other. I was often sad, and saw no end to “the hard times.”

My responsibilities in the family increased a lot since I knew English better than everyone else at home. I wrote letters, filled out forms, translated at interviews with Immigration officers, took my grandparents to the doctor and translated there, and even discussed telephone bills with company representatives.

From my experiences I have learned one important rule: almost all common troubles eventually go away! Something good is certain to happen in the end when you do not give up, and just wait a little! I believe that my life will turn out all right, even though it will not be that easy.

51. How did the author get to know America?

A. From her relatives.

B. From her mother.

C. From books and pictures.

D. From radio programs.

52. Upon leaving for America the author felt_______.

A. confused

B. excited

C. worried

D. amazed

53.8For the first two years in New York, the author _________.

A. often lost her way

B. did not think about her future

C. studied in three different schools

D. got on well with her stepfather

54. What can we learn about the author from Paragraph 4?

A. She worked as a translator.

B. She attended a lot of job interviews.

C. She paid telephone bills for her family.

D. She helped her family with her English.

55. The author believes that______.

A. her future will be free from troubles

B. it is difficult to learn to become patient

C. there are more good things than bad things

第Ⅱ卷(非选择题共45分)

第一节、阅读表达(5小题;每小题3分,满分15分.)

阅读下面短文,用英语简要回答文后所给的5个问题(回答时,每题不超过15个单词)

I remember a time I went shopping on my first visit to Macau. Coming from cold and cloudy England, I was prepared for the sun and dresssed in a T-shirt and a short skirt. Not having much chance to enjoy the sun in the UK and having naturally fair skin, my legs are very white. In the UK this is not a fashionable(时尚的) look at all. Most women spend every sunny day out in the sun trying to get darker skin. The darker the skin, the better the look.

As I walked around one shop, the two shop assistants didn?t take their eyes off me the whole time, talking quietly in Chinese .I began to feel uncomfortable and asked my friend if we could leave. After we left the shop, she asked me what was wrong. I was embarrassed that they were talking about my white skin. My friend laughed. “They were not laughing at you .They were saying how nice your legs are. Many Chinese women want to have white skin like yours. In fact, there are many beauty products in the shops to make skin whiter and a lot of money is spent on them.”

It just goes to show that we always think what others have is better. The grass is always greener on the other side. If the women of the West and East thought the same way, Western women wouldn?t spend so much money o n cream that makes skin darker and women from the East wouldn?t need to use cream that makes skin whiter .

1. What is the writer telling about?

_________________________________________________________________

2. What did the writer prepare to do during her visit?

_________________________________________________________________

3. Why did the writer want to leave the shop at once?

_________________________________________________________________

4. Why did the writer think the shop girls were laughing at her?

_________________________________________________________________

5.What does the underlined sentence “The grass is always greener on the other side” mean?
