Do you want to know about my staying in America? Well, to tell you the truth, it is really an eye-opening experience study here.
In China, I had English classes five times a week since fifth grade. However, I didn’t know how different between textbook English and everyday English until I came to Hotchkiss School, Connecticut.
When I first studied English, I was told to say, “I am fine.” when people say “How are you?” But in the US, I found that people say,“I am good.”or“I am tired.”
One day, someone greeted me with “What’s up?” It made me confused(困惑的). I thought for a moment and then smiled because I didn't know what to say.
Since then, I have discovered more and more differences between Chinese and US cultures. To my surprise, US girls spend a lot of time in the burning sun to get a tan. However, in China, girls try every possible way to get their skin paler, or “whiter.”
I also surprised by how hard-working. In China, schoolwork is almost everything, so we study hard. But here, a “good” student gets good grades, does a lot for the public and plays sports or music.
The kids here are so talented, I feel sorry that I gave up playing the piano at an early age and that I have never thought about sports.
( )61. According to the writer, textbook English is _________everyday English.
A. quite different from B. the same as C. more difficult than D. easier than
( )62. The word “tan ” mean_________ in Chinese.
A. 能量 B. 变白 C. 晒黑 D. 晒红
( )63. A good US student spends his/her time ________.
A. only in doing homework B. only on sports or music
C. on sports or music and public work D. on studies, sports or music and public work
( )64. Which of the following is NOT true?
A. The writer is now in US. B. American girls love to have white skin.
C. US students are talented. D. The writer has learned to play the piano.
( )65. The best title for the passage is________.
A. My Own Travel in the US B. My Opinion about the US
C. My Studying in the US D. How to learn English

High-speed trains, Alipay(支付宝), shared bikes and online payment are seen as the new Four Great Achievements of China by young foreigners, according to a video survey by the Silk Road Research Institute(协会) of Beijing Foreign Studies University.

The following is what they said from 4 young people of them.

In today’s world many people seem to be hungry for money. Some of them even lose their lives for it. Money does have its most useful effect on the poor, but once a person has a rich life, a lot more money doesn’t mean more happiness.
If money was everything, all millionaires(百万富翁)would have true love, true friendship, good health and a long life. However, this is not always true.
Nothing else is more pleasant than the three words which are “I love you”. But can love be bought? I don’t think so. Love means to give, not to take. To every person, health and a long life are probably the most precious(宝贵的)things. Well, can health and a long life be bought with money? The answer is “No”, of course.
Of all the longest living people in the world, few of them are millionaires. True friendship can’t be bought either. In a word, when money is worshiped(崇拜), it can cause brothers to quarrel, lovers to hate, strangers to fight and so on. No matter how much money you have, it is still not enough to make you a happy person if you have no one to laugh with, no one to cry for.
61. According to the passage, which of the following do you think is right?
A. Money is everything. B. Money is important, but not the most important.
C. Money isn’t necessary. D. With no money, with no success.
62. What’s the most important thing for every person according to the writer?
A. Money. B. Health and a long life.
C. Friendship. D. Happiness.
63. Which sentence of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. If you haven’t much money，you can’t get more happiness.
B. Every year many people die in the world because their family is poor.
C. You may live a long life even if you are poor.
D. If you are rich, you will have less friendship.
64. What would the writer like to tell us in Paragraph 4?
A. All the millionaires are the longest living people in the world.
B. Money can buy all the things, including true friendship.
C. Money can make all the people get on well with each other.
D. Money can make you unhappy unless you have others to share happiness and sadness
65. What does the underlined sentence “Love means to give, not to take.” mean in the passage?
A. 爱意味着给你，而不能带走。 B. 爱是可以得到的，不要走开。
C. 爱意味着奉献，而不是索取。 D. 爱是可以索取的，而不必付出。
Some people love going to museums, while others really hate it and would rather stay at home, enjoying their favourite TV shows. So museums are being seen as out-of-date and boring by today’s young people. I have just returned to the UK after travelling around the USA. While I was there, I visited lots of museums. I must say, museums are educational, either to develop knowledge learned at school, or to improve knowledge of other cultures.
In Chicago, we visited the world-famous Art Institute of Chicago. It was full of paintings, drawings and sculptures by a large number of artists, such as Picasso, Monet, Matisse and Dali. There was a mixture of traditional and modern art.
When we were in Washington D.C., we visited a few of the Smithsonian museums. These are all free to visitors, which is great if you just want to see a few things, and not spend all day inside. The Air and Space Museum was especially good: it had lots of planes on show, interesting information and also some interactive (互动) parts. We also went to the National U. S. Holocaust (纳粹大屠杀) Memorial Museum. Naturally, it was sad to read about the horrors which influenced so many people in World War II. However, it was also interesting to read the stories of those who survived the Holocaust, as well as those who helped others.
I also found the 9/11 Memorial and Museum to be of great interest. This museum is for those who lost their lives, as well as their families, when the Twin Towers in New York City were attacked by terrorists in 2001. It tells you how the terrorists planned the attack and what happened as a result of their actions. Surviving pieces of the towers are shown in the museum. It was a truly meaningful visit, which made me treasure my own life more.
I think museums play an important role in realizing historical importance for future people. Whatever your interests are, there may be a museum for you. You can visit waxwork (蜡像) museums to see models of famous people, science museums for an interactive visit and a little bit more! Best of all, if you’re ever in the UK, many of them are free!
66. The first paragraph tells us that _____________. .
A. people of all ages love going to museums
B. trips to museums are always very tiring
C. most museums in the USA are outdated
D. some young people find museums boring
67. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. There are a lot of interactive parts in waxwork museums.
B. Art Institute of Chicago has a mixture of traditional and modern art.
C. You’d better read the stories before visiting the holocaust Memorial Museum.
D. The Air and Space Museum shows the twin towers were attacked by terrorists.
68. What does the underlined word “terrorists” mean in paragragh 4?
A. 绑匪 B. 恐怖分子 C. 窃贼 D. 抢劫犯
69. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Future people have the duty to protect museums.
B. Visiting 9/11 Memorial and Museum is educational.
C. All the museums around the world are free for students.
D. Taking photos is allowed in the Smithsonian museums.
70. What is the writer’s opinion towards museums?
A. She suggests going to museums.
B. She warns of the problems of museums.
C. Museums have advantages and downsides.
D. Museums should be open to all kinds of people.
71. Sorry, it’s too late to ¬¬¬¬________(取消) your order. Your order has been sent on the way.
72. It’s necessary to think of some ¬¬¬¬________ (安全) tips to protect ourselves against crime.
73. I just don’t know why the engineer has so many ________(敌人).

Most high schools in the United States publish a yearbook once a year, usually in spring. It is a record of the school year—a “book of memories” for the students.
Inside a yearbook is each student’s photo. The seniors are graduating soon, and their photos appear first. Next are the juniors. They are one year behind the seniors. Then come the second-year students. The last photos are the first-year students. The yearbook is not only about students. The teachers have photos, too.
The yearbook also has photos and descriptions of many activities. These are activities that students do after school, such as the chess club and Spanish club. There is even a yearbook club. Students in this club write, design and take photos all year for the yearbook.
In the yearbook, some students receive special titles. The seniors vote and choose the “class clown” (a funny student), the “most likely to succeed” (a student who got the best grades), and the “best dressed” (a student with a good fashion sense). There are also other awards.
Students usually sign each other’s yearbooks. This is especially important for the seniors because they are graduating. Students write notes to each other, such as, “We had a lot of fun,” or “I’ll never forget you.” They also write about the fun and funny experiences they shared in school together.
86. When do American schools usually publish a yearbook?
87. How many grades are there in most high schools in the USA?
88. Whose photos can we see in a yearbook?
89. What title might a student with a good fashion sense get?
90. Why is it important for senior students to sign each other’s yearbooks?
One of the most common questions I am asked is whether, when, and how to follow up after a job interview(面试). Following up in some way is necessary. Yes, you can get a job without it, but if you compete with other top candidates(候选人), following up can sometimes help you when the other candidate doesn’t. Here’s how to follow up well:
Send a thank-you note right away. E-mail is fine for this and has the advantage of arriving faster, but handwritten notes are still enjoyed. And if there are many interviews, send a thank-you note each time.
Find out their timeline. Hopefully, you asked about their timeline in the interview itself, but if you didn’t, follow up within a week to strengthen your interest and politely ask what they expect their timeline for a decision to be.
Be patient. Commonly, job seekers(求职者) are too worried about the result. It needn’t look worried to express your interest in the job or check in to ask about the timeline.
Don’t be nervous if you don’t hear from them at once. The hiring process(招聘流程) often takes longer than a candidate would like, maybe the decision makers are out of town. If you miss the time they told you to hear something, it’s unnecessary to be nervous. Hiring often ends up taking longer than expected. Just politely follow up, explain you’re very interested but understand that hiring can take time, and ask if they have the latest timeline.
Title: 91 to follow up after a job interview well?
92 of following up ● Following up is very necessary in some way.
Ways of following up ● Send a thank-you note at 93 . ●E-mail can arrive 94 than handwritten notes.

● Be patient. It is 98 that job seekers are too worried.
●Don’t be nervous. ● The hiring often takes a longer time.
●The decision makers are not 99 town.
●If you miss the time you are told, follow up 100
and explain you are interested in the job.
In Britain, the government, school learders, teachers and parents all agree that students should wear uniforms. Almost all the British private schools have their o 101 school uniforms. They believe that it’s i 102 to wear school uniforms.
School leaders usually decide if students will have to wear a uniform, and they a 103
decide what it will look like. You know, no students want to wear u 104 unifroms. Everybody wants to wear beautifully.
Leaders have to follow the rules, and they c 105 just choose anything they like. They have to t 106 of the students’ feelings. Here are a few f 107 leaders should consider.
1. Cost. This is the first fact they should consider. Their uniforms shouldn’t be too e 108 .
If so, it may cause problems for some families because not all the families can afford it.
2. Sexism(性别歧视). The uniform policy must be equally fair(公平的) for boys and
g 109 .
3. Cultures and races. School rules must a 110 students from all backgrounds to wear a uniform, for example, allowing Muslim(穆斯林) girls to wear a proper dress and Sikh(印度锡克教徒) boys to wear a traditional headdress(头饰).

W: Not bad, the food is nice, but the service is so so.
6. M: Everybody can hand in the homework on time except Tom. Also, he is sleepy in class.
W: Maybe that’s because he stays up too late. I’ll ask him to watch less TV and go to bed early. Thank you, Mr White.
7. M: Mary, be quick. We still need to walk five more kilometers.
W: Oh, it is a long way to go. I can’t walk any further.
8. M: Excuse me! Is this seat taken?
W: I’m afraid so. The boy went to take more books just now. You may take that one.
9. M: How much is the ticket for the film?
W: It’s fifty yuan. But there’s a special offer for the students. It’s half the price.
10. M: What time do you usually go to school in the morning?
W: At seven twenty. And it takes me ten minutes to walk to school.
W: Sam, what are you doing? Come and have your breakfast. You will be late.
M: I am looking for my glasses. Have you seen them?
W: Oh, dear. You’re always forgetting things. What did you do just now? Maybe you left them in the bathroom.
M: No. I checked there but I didn’t find them.
W: What else did you do?
M: Oh, I remember I read a magazine in the living room. You know I can’t read without my glasses.
W: Then you must have left them there. Go there quickly. I’m sure you’ll find them.

When my parents asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I told them I wanted a DVD of Simon Smith playing table tennis. He is my favorite table tennis player. He is really fast and never seems to get tired. No one can ever guess where he will hit the ball next. He has won six international competitions. I want to be just like him. I play table tennis for my school team and I practise five days a week. However, my parents didn’t give me the DVD. Instead, they took me to see Simon Smith play a real table tennis match! We had wonderful seats that were very close to the court. Of course, Smith won the match. It was the best day of my life.

Daniel is a member of my team called Sunshine. Everyone in our group likes him very much because he is smart and hard-working. It’s also generous of him to share things with us. He often helps us when we are in trouble.
In his free time, he not only likes reading detective stories, travelling but also likes watching programmes about sports. But since this term, he has devoted most of time to study and has made great progress.
He is good at sports, especially running. He came first in the race of school sports meeting this year. He is such a brave young boy that he successfully helped Detective Lu solve the case of kidnapping. Because of this, he was honored with “Award for Bravery”.
But recently, he has got some problems. He is suffering from the coming exams. He feels so stressed that he can’t sleep well at night. I think that he worries too much and should arrange his time well so that he can achieve the confidence and pass the exams successfully. I hope he thinks my advice is worth taking.
