第二部分 阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节（共 15 小题：每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项，并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑。
A If you are sending a text, watching the TV or listening to the radio, you may want to stop and give this your full attention. Multi-tasking shrinks (萎缩) the brain, research suggests. A study found that men and women who frequently used several types of technology at the same time had less grey matter in a key part of the brain. University of Sussex researchers said, “Simultaneously using mobile phones, laptops and other media devices could be changing the structure of our brains.” The finding follows research which has linked multi-tasking with a shortened attention span, depression, anxiety and lower grades at school. The researchers began by asking 75 healthy men and women how often they divided their attention between different types of technology. This could mean sending a text message while listening to music and checking email, or speaking on the phone while watching TV and surfing the web. The volunteers were then given brain scans which showed they had less grey matter in a region called the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC). The findings held even when differences in personality were taken into account. The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, is the first to make a link between multi-tasking and the structure of the brain. Researcher Kep Kee Loh said, “Media multi-tasking is becoming more common in our lives today and there is increasing concern about its impacts on our cognition and social-emotional well-being.” He added that more research is needed to prove that multi-tasking shrinks the brain. This is because it is also possible that people with less grey matter in the ACC are more drawn to using lots of small devices simultaneously. Scientists have previously demonstrated brain structure can be changed on prolonged exposure to new environments and experience. Other studies have shown that training — such as learning to juggle or taxi drivers learning the map of London — can increase grey-matter densities ( 密度) in certain parts. Experts have also warned of the harmful impact technology can have on our memory and attention span. 21. According to Kep Kee Loh, ________.
A. the link between multi-tasking and brain shrinkage needs further research B. people with less grey matter in the ACC are more attracted to multi-tasking C. multi-tasking has harmful impacts on our cognition and social-emotional well-being D. multi-tasking leads to a shortened attention span, depression, anxiety and lower grades 22. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage? A. What multi-tasking is probably linked with. B. How researchers draw inferences about multi-tasking. C. How different health conditions affect brain structure. D. Significance and limits of the research from University of Sussex . 23. The purpose of the passage is to ________. A. compare the latest research with previous ones B. prove the dangers of multi-tasking C. inform readers of research on multi-tasking D. discuss the benefits and problems of multi-tasking
B A recent survey found that the French are the second-most insecure people in Europe after Italy about their proficiency in English. Only 13 percent of the French respondents believed they are proficient in the language, according to the European data agency Eurostat. The situation is no better in business circles, where three-quarters of French executives feel unprepared to hold an interview in English and only 16 percent say they feel comfortable with the language, a separate survey showed. The survey results aren't surprising. The French seem to have always had this cold and gloomy（沮丧 的）attitude toward the English language. But what struck me is that, despite the French pessimism, living
in Paris without being able to speak the language of Moliere is easier these days than in the past. New immigrants are part of the reason. I can have an easy chat with the owner of the laundry in my neighborhood. Buying the medicine I need at the local pharmacy is effortless. Ordering a meal in English at the restaurant two blocks away from my apartment does not make me feel awkward. It is all because the people who run these businesses are immigrants. Greater tolerance and acceptance of non-French speakers is a reflection of the fact that France, willingly or not, has begun to embrace(拥抱) globalization more comfortably. For instance, you will never get the same look you would have had 15 years ago if you ask for directions in English on the streets of Paris. I have also met many native French who are happy to communicate in English. They are usually the kind of people who are open-minded and are sensitive to the changes beyond their own territories. They are very interested in gaining insight into what is happening on the other side of the globe. In my hometown, English is also being hotly debated since Beijing education authorities decided to reduce the importance of English proficiency in college entrance exams and increase that of the Chinese language and literature. The Chinese and the French share similarities in attitudes toward foreign languages. We are both so proud of our own languages and cultures that we can feel uncomfortable when we are forced to communicate in another language. But like it or not, English is still the most widely used language in the world, at least for the foreseeable （可 预知的） future. After all, it is not about
abandoning one's own language but about being able to fit more easily into this globalized world. 24. What is the passage mainly about? A. French people have great difficulty speaking English. B. English is becoming increasingly acceptable in France. C. Great changes take place in France because of the immigrants. D. English helps France to embrace globalization.
25. The expression “to speak the language of Moliere” can be understood as________________. A. to speak Italian C. to speak French named Moliere 26. What is the purpose of mentioning Chinese in the 7
B. to speak English D. to speak the language of an immigrant
A. To prove Chinese and French share a lot similarities in culture. B. To show how wise it is to reduce the importance of English in exams. C. To explain why French people are unwilling to speak English. D. To show how proud they are to own their own languages. 27. What can we infer from the passage? A. The immigrants in France speak English as their native language. B. In France people refuse to communicate with each other in English. C. Italians feel the most unconfident in speaking English in Europe. D. French people are happy to face the changes in their country.
C When I was superintendent of schools in Palo Alto, California, Polly Tyner, the president of our board of trustees（董事会）, wrote a letter that was printed in the Palo Alto Times. Polly's son, Jim, had great difficulty in school. He was classified as educationally handicapped and required a great deal of patience on the part of his parents and teachers. But Jim was a happy kid with a great smile that lit up the room. His parents acknowledged his academic difficulties, but always tried to help him see his strengths so that he could walk with pride. Shortly after Jim finished high school, he was killed in a motorcycle accident. After his death, his mother submitted this letter to the newspaper.
Today we buried our 20-year-old son. He was killed instantly in a motorcycle accident on Friday night. How I wish I had known when I talked to him last that it would be the last time. If I had only known I would have said, "Jim, I love you and I'm so very proud of you."
I would have taken the time to count the many blessings he brought to the lives of the many who loved him. I would have taken time to appreciate his beautiful smile, the sound of his laughter, his genuine love of people. When you put all the good attributes on the scale(天平) and you try to balance all the irritating traits such as the radio which was always too loud, the haircut that wasn't to our liking, the dirty socks under the bed, etc., the irritations don't amount to much. I won't get another chance to tell my son all I would have wanted him to hear, but, other parents, you do have a chance. Tell your young people what you would want them to hear if you knew it would be your last conversation. The last time I talked to Jim was the day he died. He called me to say, "Hi, Mom! I just called to say I love you. Got to go to work. Bye." He gave me something to treasure forever. If there is any purpose at all to Jim's death, maybe it is to make others appreciate more of life and to have people, especially families, take the time to let each other know just how much we care. You may never have another chance. Do it today!
28. Which of the following is NOT true about Jim? A. He was a boy handicapped and needed lots of patience. B. He was an optimistic child and was sincere and kind to others. C. He found a job after his graduation from high school. D. He held a positive attitude to life despite his great difficulty in learning. 29. The letter submitted by Jim’s mother is intended to____________. A. be in memory of her son who died at an early age B. appeal to people to pay attention to road safety C. remind people to cherish their friends and families D. show the great sorrow when parents lost their child 30. The underlined word “traits” in the fourth paragraph probably means___________. A. portraits B. qualities C. arguments D. habits
31. The passage is most probably entitled__________. A. A Heart-broken Story B. Memories About Jim
C. Great Parental Love
D. Do It Today
D It is all very well to blame traffic jams, the cost of petrol and the quick pace of modern life, but manners on the roads are becoming horrible. Everybody knows that the nicest men become monsters behind the wheel. It is very well, again, to have a tiger in the tank, but to have one in the driver’s seat is another matter altogether. You might tolerate the odd road-hog, the rude and inconsiderate driver, but nowadays the well-mannered motorist is the exception to the rule. Perhaps the situation calls for a “Be Kind to Other Drivers” campaign, otherwise it may get completely out of control. Road politeness is not only good manners, but good sense too. It takes the most cool-headed and good-tempered drivers to resist the temptation to revenge when subjected to uncivilized behavior. On the other hand, a little politeness goes a long way towards relieving the tensions of motoring. A friendly nod or a wave of acknowledgement in response to an act of politeness helps to create an atmosphere of goodwill and tolerance so necessary in modern traffic conditions. But such acknowledgements of politeness are all too rare today. Many drivers nowadays don’t even seem able to recognize politeness when they see it. However, misplaced politeness can also be dangerous. Typical examples are the driver who brakes violently to allow a car to emerge from a side street at some hazard to following traffic, when a few seconds later the road would be clear anyway; or the man who waves a child across a zebra crossing into the path of oncoming vehicles that may be unable to stop in time. The same goes for encouraging old ladies to cross the road wherever and whenever they want to. It always amazes me that the highways are not covered with the dead bodies of these grannies. A veteran (资深的) driver, whose manners are faultless, told me it would help if motorists learnt to filter correctly into traffic streams one at a time without causing the total blockages that give rise to bad temper. Unfortunately, modern motorists can’t even learn to drive, let alone master the subtler aspects of boatmanship. Years
ago the experts warned us that the car-ownership explosion would demand a lot more give-and-take from all road users. It is high time for all of us to take this message to heart. 32. According to this passage, troubles on the road are primarily caused by ________. A. people’s attitude towards the road-hog C. the behavior of the driver B. the rhythm of modern life D. traffic conditions
33. The sentence “You might tolerate the odd road-hog... the rule.” (Para. 1) implies that ________. A our society is unjust towards well-mannered motorists B. rude drivers can be met only occasionally C. the well-mannered motorist cannot tolerate the road-hog D. nowadays impolite drivers make up the majority of motorists 34. In the writer’s opinion, which is “misplaced politeness”? A. Revenge when subjected to uncivilized behavior. B. Encouraging old ladies to cross the road as long as they want to. C. A wave of acknowledgement in response to an act of politeness. D. Waving a child across a zebra crossing. 35. In the writer’s opinion, ________. A. strict traffic regulations are badly needed B. drivers should apply road politeness properly C. rude drivers should be punished D. drivers should avoid traffic jams
第二节（共 5 小题：每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余 选项。 Conquering Procrastination (拖延症) Procrastination, the habit of putting tasks off to the last possible minute, can be a major problem in both your career and your personal life. 36 . Therefore,
it takes deliberate strategies to avoid becoming our own worst enemy by
procrastinating on our intended actions. Don’t give in to feeling good. 37 . For example, a task at hand makes us
feel anxious or overwhelmed, so we give in to feeling good, seeking immediate emotional relief, and we walk away, leaving the task for tomorrow. To cope with this, stay for a minute — don’t walk away. Acknowledge the negative emotions, but get started anyway. Progress on a goal provides the motivation for another step forward. 38 . We’re most likely to procrastinate on tasks that lack structure. This
means that in addition to making your task specific, it’s important to reduce the uncertainty about how to continue — and, when it’s time to act, to reduce available distractions (分心的事物) as well. Shut off your e-mail, separate yourself from others as much as you can, and make sure the environment around you is working to strengthen your willpower and focus, not to weaken your efforts. Make the most of the willpower muscle. A great deal of recent research clearly indicates that willpower is like a muscle. You can exhaust it more quickly than you might imagine and, when you do, you lose your ability to self-regulate your behavior. One immediate method to strengthen your resolve in order to keep you on task is to remind yourself of your values. Beating procrastination 39 . rocket science, but it is psychology.
Procrastinators can change their behavior — but doing so consumes a lot of mental energy. treatment. A. Its side effects include losing opportunities, rushed work, stress, anger, and guilt. B. Do not perform several tasks at a time. C. This process of self-recognition strengthens our weakening willpower. D. When self-regulation fails, it’s often because short-term emotional repair comes before our long-term goals. E. And it doesn’t necessarily mean one feels transformed internally. F. It means doing more enjoyable things in place of less enjoyable ones. G. Reduce uncertainty and distractions. 40 . It can be done with highly organized cognitive (认知的) behavior

第二节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出可以填入空白处的 最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 Everyone in business has been told that success is all about attracting and
retaining (留住) customers. It sounds simple and achievable. But,
, words of 62
wisdom are soon forgotten. Once companies have attracted customers they often the second half of the story. In the 63
of beating off the competition,
negotiating prices, securing orders, and delivering the product, managers tend to become carried away. They forget what they regard as the boring side of business— 64 that the customer remains a customer. 65 to concentrate on retaining as well as attracting customers costs business
huge amounts of money annually. It has been estimated that the average company loses between 10 and 30 per cent of its 66 every years. In constantly changing 67 ,
this is not surprising. What is surprising is the fact that few companies have any idea how many customers they have lost. Only now are organizations beginning to calculate the 68 those lost opportunities and
69 implications. Cutting down the number of customers a company 70 in its performance. Research in the US found that a five 71
loses can make a big
per cent decrease in the number of defecting (流失的) customers led to increases of between 25 and 85 per cent.
In the US, Domino’s Pizza estimates that a regular customer is worth more than $5,000 over ten years. A customer who receives a poor quality product or service on their first visit and in 73 72 never returns, is losing the company thousands of dollars
profits (more if you consider how many people they are likely to tell about
their bad experience).
The logic behind cultivating customer
is impossible to deny. “In practice
most companies’ marketing effort is focused on getting customers, with little attention paid to 75 them”, says Adrian Payne of Cornfield University’ School 76
of Management. “Research suggests that there is a close relationship between customers and making profits. 77
customers tend to buy more, are predictable and
usually cost less to service than new customers. Furthermore, they tend to be less price 78 , and may provide free word-of-mouth advertising. Retaining customers 79 for competitors to enter a market or increase their 80 of

In China, some retired people gather on the square or in the park to dance together in the early morning or evening. People call it square dancing. It is a good way of keeping fit, especially for the elderly. However, the noise caused by the loud music really affects the normal life and study of residents living nearby. Besides, square dancing takes up too many public places, like parks and squares, annoying other users. Considering the current situation, I think that the dancers should keep the music down to an acceptable level, and arrange their dancing time properly. What’s more, in order to reduce the inconvenience to others, organizers should carefully choose suitable places to dance in and more importantly, dancers and residents should learn to tolerate, understand and respect each other. 18. minimum 19.automatic 20. coincidence 13. equipped 14. appointment 15. 2. transformation 3. phenomena 4. accustomed 5. circumstances 10.

听力录音材料 第一节 听力理解 Text 1 M: （3）I see from your letter that you are well qualified for the job, Mrs. Richards. We should be interested in having you work for us. W: Well, thanks. I have done this kind of work before.（1）I love children, and of course, I did a good job raising my own. M: Are you interested in part-time or full-time employment? W: Only part time, forty hours in one week is too much for me. M: You know part-time employees don’t get any other benefits beside the pay. W: Yes, I know that. May I ask you if I can decide on the hours I would like to work? M: （2）I can only give you the choice of working 7:00 a.m. till noon or noon till 5:00 p.m.. Our part-time work week is five days and you can enjoy a two-day weekend. W: I would prefer to work in the morning because I have a lot of work to do around the hour every day. Besides, I have to prepare supper for my husband. M: OK. Mrs. Richards, or shall I say Lily?（3）You’re hired. Just sign your name here on this line. Text 2
W: Hi, John. How is your oral presentation coming along? M: Hi, Mary. What oral presentation? Oh, now I remember. Do you mean the one we are asked to prepare for our literature course? I don’t have to give mine until the end of the next week. W: You mean you haven’t even started working on it yet? M: （4）No. I need the pressure of deadline to get inspired. W: Oh. I’m just the opposite. I can’t concentrate unless I have plenty of time. Besides I have a big physics test next week so I want to get my presentation out of the way. M: What’s your oral presentation about? W: Walter Scott. M: Wasn’t he a poet? I thought we were supposed to focus on a short story. W: He wrote short stories, too. M: Really? I never knew that. （5）I guess I’ll learn more on Tuesday. Is that when you are supposed to give the presentation?
W: Uh-huh. But I’m looking for someone to tell me whether I’m talking too fast and whether you can follow what I am saying. M: I guess I could do that. What time are you thinking of? W: Will tonight be all right? I have a class to go to now，but I’ll be around after dinner. M: That sounds good.（6）I’ll drop in at your room. It’s probably quieter than in my hall. Text 3 Cars, as products of modern civilization, have been playing a vital part in the daily activities of human society. As a common means of transportation, （7）cars have brought convenience and high efficiency to people’s lives. They have also stimulated the development of many countries’ industry, business and trade. In fact, the wide use of cars have greatly improved people’s standard of living. But cars have also given rise to a series of problems. The amount of farm land is becoming smaller and smaller due to the extending of highways and parking lots.
（8）Other problems, such as air and noise pollution, oil shortages, traffic jams and car accidents are becoming more and more serious. Some of them even threaten our existence. Therefore, cars, like anything else, have more than one face. Our society cannot run without them, but they have also brought us serious problems. （9）So ways have to be found to make full use of their advantages and to reduce their disadvantages. Text 4 W: Oh, Martin, there you are. You have been ages. What kept you so long? M: I’m sorry I’m late, Amy. Have you been waiting long? W: Oh, half an hour. But it doesn’t matter. I’ve had a coffee and I’ve been reading this guidebook for tourists. Sit down. You look very hot and tired. What would you like to drink? M: （10）I’d love a really cold mineral water or something. Will you have another coffee? W: Yes, I will. The waitress will be back in a moment. Why were you so late? Did something happen? M: Yes. You know I went to the bank to cash some travellers’ cheques? Well, the exchange rate was looking healthy here, just as in Australia and New Zealand， （11）but when I went to the clerk, they told me the computer system was temporarily down, so they couldn’t do any banking business. They said the problem would be fixed in a few minutes, so I waited. And then I started talking to another guy in the bank, and I forgot the time. W: Oh, really? Someone you met in the bank? Does he work there? M: No, he was a tourist, from New York. His name is Henry, and he’s been here for a week, but he is moving on to Germany tomorrow. （12）He’s an architect, and he’s spending three weeks traveling around Europe. W: Just like us!. M: Yeah, just like us. He told me names of some places where we should eat. Great
food and not too expensive, he said. Oh, and he also gave me this map of bus system in America in case we might need it when we are there. Text 5 A donkey and a horse served the same master, who put equal loads on them for a trip. （13）The donkey was very unhappy about the work distribution. He said: “My food is only half as much as the horse’s but my share of the burden is the same as his. （14）They walked some distance and the donkey began to grow tired. The master shifted some of his loads to the horse. After another leg of the journey the donkey become extremely exhausted. The master again lightened his burden. Finally the donkey found himself entirely free of loads. Then the horse said to him angrily: “Will you now complain about my getting more food than you?” One can’t judge a person’s capability in a hurry. It takes a long time to do him justice. （15）An organization has usually two kinds of work routine and special tasks. A person undertakes the latter is better rewarded. Some of the people who do the routine complain they are less paid.（15）If such a person is by chance given a job of the second category, he will come to realize that to solve a problem demands much more ability than he possesses.
第二节 听取信息 M: Sara,（20）I’ve heard that you want to move into a home-stay or host family. Is that correct? W: Yes, that’s right. I’ve been staying with my aunt and now my cousin is arriving from Singapore and my aunt needs the room for him. M: Oh, that’s bad luck. Well, I’ll need to get some particulars first. Sara, what’s your full name? W: Sara Jones, and that’s Sara without the “h” at the end. M: How old are you, Sara? W: Twenty-two, only just. It was my birthday on the twenty-first of August.
M: Happy Birthday for yesterday! （16）How long have you been in Australia? W: A year in Alice Spring and six months in Sydney. I prefer Sydney, and I’ve got more friends here.

M: That sounds good, but it’ll take you quite some time. When would you like to move out from your aunt’s? W: （19）My cousin arrives on Friday morning, so I’d better be out on Thursday. M: What? The seventh of September? W: That’s right. W: All right. We will try.
