I arrived in the classroom, ready to share my knowledge and experience with 75 students who would be my English Literature (文学)class. Having taught in the US for 17 years, I had no ____31____about my ability to hold their attention and to ____32___ on them my admiration for the literature of my mother tongue.

I was shocked when the monitor shouted, ―____33____ !‖ and the entire class rose as I entered the room, and I was somewhat____34____over how to get them to sit down again, but once that awkwardness(尴尬)was over, I quickly___35____my calmness and began what I thought was a fact-packed lecture, sure to gain their respect – perhaps____36____their admiration.

I went back to my office with the rosy glow(光) which comes from a (n)___37____of achievements.

My students___38____diaries. However, as I read them, the rosy glow was gradually ___39___ by a strong sense of sadness. The first diary said, ―Our literature teacher didn’t teach us anything today. 40 her next lecture will be better.‖ Greatly surprised, I read diary after diary, each expressing a 41 subject. ―Didn’t I teach them anything? I described the entire philosophical framework(哲学体系)of Western thought and laid the historical __42 for all the works we’ll study in class,‖ I complained. ―How 43 they say I didn’t teach them anything?‖

When I lived in Spain, some Spanish friends of mine decided to visit England by car. Before they left, they asked me for advice about how to find accommodation. I suggested that they should stay at ‘bed and breakfast’houses, because this kind of accommodation gives a foreign visitor a good chance to speak English with the family. My friends listened to my advice, but they came back with some funny stories.

“We didn’t stay at bed and breakfast houses,”they said, “because we found that most families were away on holiday.”

I thought this was strange. Finally I understood what had happened. My friends spoke little English, and they thought ‘V ACANCIES’meant ‘holidays’, because the Spanish word for ‘holidays”is ‘vacaciones’. So they did not go to house where the sign outside said ‘V ACANCLES’, which in English means there are free rooms. Then my friends went to house where the sign said ‘NO V ACANCLES’, because they thought this meant the people who owned the house were not away on holiday. But they found that these houses were all full. As a result, they stayed at hotels!

We laughed about this and about mistakes my friends made in reading other signs. In Spanish, the word ‘DIVERSION’means fun. In English, it means that workmen are repairing the road, and that you must take a different road. When my friends saw the word ‘DIVERSION’on a road sign, they thought they were going to have fun. Instead, the road ended in a large hold.

English people have problems too when they learn foreign languages. Once in Paris. when someone offered me some more. coffee, I said ‘Thank you’in French. I meant that I would like some more, However , to my surprise the coffee pot was taken away! Later I found out that ‘Thank you’in French means ‘No, thank you.’

A. fall into a hole

B. have a lot of fun and enjoy yourself

C. find that the road is blocked by crowds of people

D. have to take a different road

It must have been around nine o’clock when I drove back home from work because it was

already dark. As I came near to the gates I turned off the headlamps of the car so as to prevent the beam(光) from swinging(摇摆)in through the window and waking Jack, who shared the house with me. But needn’t have done so, I noticed that his light was still on, so he was awake anyway--- unless he had fallen asleep while reading. I put the car away and went up the steps, Then I opened the door quietly and went to Jack’s room. He was in bed awake but he didn’t even turn towards me.

―What’s up, Jack?‖ I said.

―For God’s sake(看在上帝面上), don’t make a noise,‖ he said.

The way he spoke reminded me of someone in pain who is afraid to talk in case he does himself a serious injury(伤害).

―Take your shoes off, Neville,‖ Jack said.

I thought that he must be ill and that I had better humour (迁就)him to keep him happy, ―There’s a snake here‖ he explained, ―It’s asleep between the sheets. I was lying on my back reading when I saw it. I knew that moving was out of the question. I couldn’t have moved even if I’d wanted to .‖ I realized that he was serious. ―I was relying on you to call a doctor as soon as you came home.‖ Jack went on.‖ It hasn’t bitten me yet but I daren’t do anything to upset it. It might wake up. I’m sick of this,‖ he said, :‖ I took it for granted that you would have come home an hour ago.‖

There was no time to argue or apologize for being late. I looked at him as encouragingly as I could and went out to telephone the doctor.

WHEN there are some strangers in front of us, which of them will we trust?

According to a new study in the online PLOS One, people make their decisions to trust others largely based on their faces. Y our appearance can do a lot for you, especially if you are in the financial industry. The more trustworthy you look, the more likely people will buy what you’r e selling.

Researchers from Britain’s University of Warwick Business School, University College London, and Dartmouth College, US, did a number of experiments.

The research team used computer software to make 40 faces, from the least to the most


The study said that the difference between a trustworthy face and one that isn’t as trustworthy comes from features that look slightly angry or slightly happy, even when the face is at rest. However, a slightly happy face is more likely to be trusted.

Researchers gave participants some money and asked them which face they trusted to invest the money for them. Then researchers gave some good and bad information about the people with these faces, and asked the participants again whom they trusted.

The results showed that even if they got different information, the participants didn’t change their choices. They were still more likely to invest their money with the more trustworthy-looking faces.

Chris Olivola, one of the study’s authors, said in the University of Warwick’s press release: ―It seems we are still willing to go with our own instincts about whether we think someone looks like we can trust them. The temptation to judge strangers by their faces is hard to resist.‖

59. Which of the following can be a proper title for this passage?

A. What kind of face do you trust?

B. Who did the experiments?

C. Why do you trust him or her?

D. Why did they do the experiments?

60. According to the study, which of the following faces is most likely to be trusted?

A. A sad face.

B. A smiling face.

C. A crying face.

D. An angry face.

61. Which of the following about the experiment is TRUE?

A. The trustworthy faces were given good information.

B. Researchers took photos of the 40 people’s faces in college.

C. Most participants gave their money to the trustworthy-looking faces.

D. Participants liked to choose the faces with good information.

62. What did the researchers learn from their experiment?

A. People can’t refuse temptations.

B. People always do things with their instincts.

C. People often judge strangers by their faces.

D. People don’t trust strangers with sad faces.


The only survivor of one of the two Sandy Hook Elementary School first-grade classrooms where Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children tricked the gunman by playing dead, the girl’s pastor (牧师) said.

Reading people’s character from their ears is very old science.In ancient times people thought that a person with big ears had a good and generous character. They thought that a person with pale, small ears was dangerous. They also thought that the shape of the ear showed if a person was musical or not.

Today,too many people believe that the size and shape of the ear help you know if a person is musical. Ears are all different, and each characteristic has a meaning. Next time you look at a person ,see if his or her ears are large, medium-sized, or small. Look at the lobes(耳垂). Are they attached(连接)to the face? Ears that are always red mean that a person may have a temper, or he/she may just have high blood pressure. Ears that are always cold and pale mean that a person has a nervous character. And a big hole inside the ear means a person is musical.

So, the size and shape of your ears shows your character more than any other part of the face. Other parts of the face change their shape as we get older, but ears don’t change their shape. They only change in size.
