Much meaning can be conveyed clearly with our eyes, so it is often said that eyes can speak.

Do you have such kind of experience? In a bus you may look at a stranger, but not too long. And if he is sensing that he is being stared at, he may feel uncomfortable. It’s the same in daily life. If you are looked at for more than necessary, you will look at yourself up and down, to see if there is anything wrong with you. If nothing goes wrong, you will feel angry towards other’s stare at you in that way. Eyes do speak, right?

Looking too long at someone may seem to be rude and aggressive. But things are different when it comes to stare at the opposite sex. If a man glances at a woman for more than 10 seconds and refuses to turn away his gaze, his intentions are obvious, that is, he wishes to attract her attention, to make her understand that he is admiring her.

However, the normal eye contact for two people engaged in conversation is that the speaker will only look at the listener from time to time, in order to make sure that the listener does pay attention to what the other is speaking, to tell him that he is attentive.

If a speaker looks at you continuously when speaking, as if he tries to dominate (支配) you, you will feel embarrassed. A poor liar (说谎者) usually exposes himself by looking too long at the victim, since he believes in the false idea that to look straight in the eye is a sign of honest communication. Quite the contrary.

In fact, continuous eye contact is confined (局限于) to lovers only, who will enjoy looking at each other tenderly for a long time, to show affection that words cannot express.

Evidently, eye contact should be done according to the relationship between two people and the specific situation.

68. What does the second paragraph suggest?

A. Looking at a stranger continuously is necessary.

B. Looking at a stranger continuously is not polite.

C. Something happens in our eyes.

D.Strangers should avoid eye contact.

69. The underlined word “gaze” in the third paragraph probably means______.

A. attraction

B. attention

C. head

D. eyes

70. Continuous eye contact is proper between______.

A. lovers

B. strangers

C. victims

D. liars

71. What would be discussed in the following?

A. The importance of eye contact.

B. Eye contact should be continuous.

C. Enjoying yourself in conversation.

D. Eye contact in related occasions.

The United States has a new national park called Great Basin. It is the first national park in the western states of Nevada. The new park is in the eastern part of Nevada, near the border with Utah. It is far from any city.

In the early 1800S, an American explorer traveled through the area. He found the land shaped like a bowl. So he named it the Great Basin. It is a land of unusual beauty and sharp differences.

For example, you can climb a mountain covered with green forest, and then cool yourself in a field of snow when you arrive at the top. Here and there, sharp rocks push out through the snow. Among the rocks you might see nest of the golden eagle, a bird was once in danger of dying out.

You can climb in a campground on the edge of Lehman Caves. The caves are a group of large underground rooms made of limestone (石灰石). You can walk through them for about a kilometer.

The state of Nevada has wanted a national park for more than sixty years. There has always been opposition (反对) from people who believe that a park would harm mining and agricultural interests.

The bill that set up the park, however, guarantees that mines will remain open, and the sheep and cows will continue to feed on the mountainsides (山坡).

阅读下列短文,根据所读的内容在文章后的表格中填入恰当的单词。注意表格中的每个空格只填1个单词。

Are you tired of looking for love in all the usual places? Nowadays, millions of lonely singles are now going online instead. The World Wide Web is quickly becoming the world’s most popular matchmaker. With so many singles online, dozens of dating sites like Yahoo Personals and Match. com are helping singles find that special someone. Around the world, from America to China, love is now very much online.

Singles are flocking to the Internet mainly because their busy lifestyles leave them little time to look for a significant other. Using dating sites is quick and convenient. They can “meet” a lot more people online than they could by hanging out at a club. Besides, many singles say the regular dating scene has just led them from one bad experience to another and are ready to try something else. They also appreciate the first distance of online dating, which allows them to hide themselves until they are ready to meet someone face to face. Dating sites also make it easy to avoid someone you are not interested in. In the real world, however, ignoring someone you don’t like can be embarrassing.

Despite all the advantages, online dating also presents its own set of problems. People aren’t always who they claim to be in their online profiles. For instance, someone who tells you he is “handsome, successful and single” might turn out to be homely, unemployed and married. Safety is another concern. You are just as likely to find a criminal online as you are Mr. or Miss Right.

Even so, supporters of online dating see things in a positive way. In their opinion, singles can safely play the online dating game with a little common sense. Online dating experts recommend following a few safety tips:

Guard you personal information. Never give out your personal information online. This includes your last name, phone number, home address and place of work.

Watch for red flags. Do any of the people you are chatting with make disrespectful comment? Do they try to control you? Do they give false information about themselves? If so, forget them!

Meet in a safe place. When meeting someone in person, choose a public location with other people around. Following these tips and you might be able to find the person of your dreams.
