A A cancer-stricken British teenage girl said Thursday she had been moved by messages of support from around the world after writing an online “Bucket List” of
things she wanted to do before dying. Alice Pyne, l5, created an Internet blog in which she described her fight against a cancer of the white blood cells. “ I've been fighting cancer for almost four years and now l know that the cancer is gaining on me and it doesn't look like I'm going to win this one,” she wrote. For her list, the teenager took inspiration from the 2007 film “The Bucket List”, in which two terminally ill (患绝症的) men, played by Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, draw up a list of things they wish to do before they die. On her list, at the site www. alicepyne. blogspot. com, she has included making everyone sign up to be a bone marrow donor (骨髓捐赠者), swimming with sharks, meeting boy band Take That and getting a purple iPad computer. Messages of support and offers of help quickly flooded her webpage and it became one of the most talked about subjects on Twitter. “Oh dear and I thought that I was just doing a little blog for a few friends!” she wrote after her site attracted huge attention. “Thank you so much for all your lovely messages to me.” Pyne, who lives with her family in the northwest English town of Ulverston, revealed (透露) the management of Take That had arranged for her to see the band after reading her blog. A group of local lawmakers have also joined forces with the Anthony Nolan blood cancer charity to encourage people to join its stem cell register. 21.What happened after Alice Pyne wrote her“Bucket List”? A．The media called on people to help her. B．People sent gifts to her from all over the world. C．A lot of people offered to donate bone marrow to her.

Today it is estimated that some 260 million people speak it as a native language, mainly in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, South
Africa, Australia and New Zealand. In addition to the standard varieties of English found in these areas, there are a great many regional and social varieties of the language as well as various levels of usage that are employed both in its spoken and written forms. In fact, it is impossible to estimate the number of people in the world who have acquired an adequate working knowledge of English in addition to their own languages. The purpose for English learning and the situations in which such learning takes place are so varied that it is difficult to explain and still more difficult to judge what forms an adequate working knowledge for each situation. The main reason for the widespread demand for English is its presentday importance as a world language. Besides serving the indefinite needs of its native speakers, English is a language in which some of the important works in science, technology, and other fields are being produced, and not always by native speakers. It is widely used for such purposes as meteorological and airport communications, international conferences, and the spread of information over the radio and television networks of many nations. It is a language of wider communication for a number of developing countries, especially former British colonies. Many of these countries have multilingual populations and need a language for internal communication in such matters as government, commerce, industry, law and education as well as for international communication and for entrance to the scientific and technological developments in the West. 25. Which of the following statements is NOT true? A．Some 260 million people in the world have an adequate working knowledge of English. B．There are some 260 million native speakers of English in the world. C．It is almost impossible to estimate the number of people with an adequate working knowledge of English. D．People learn English for a variety of reasons. 26. According to the passage, what is the main reason for the widespread use of English? A．It was popular during Shakespeare's time. B．It is used in former British colonies. C．It serves the needs of its native speakers. D．It is a world language that is used for international communication. 27. What forms an adequate working knowledge of English? A．The ability to read a newspaper. B．It is difficult to judge because it differs for each situation. C．Being a multilingual. D．Being a native speaker. 28. What type of developing countries would be most likely to use English? A．Those geographically close to the United States. B．Those interested in the culture of the United States. C．Former colonies of Great Britain. D．Countries where international conferences are held.
C Many people have never heard of Mesothelioma and are unaware of its symptoms. Although considered a rare form of cancer, each year the number of cases grows. With the prevalence(流行)of this disease on the rise, it is critical to understand why and how Mesothelioma develops and what courses of action can be taken in the event of diagnosis. The following is a list of frequently asked questions and answers that will provide you with some information on Mesothelioma, and the legal issues surrounding it. What is Mesothelioma? Mesothelioma is the term used to describe a cancerous tumor found in the mesothelial cells of an organ. The organs where this form of cancer is most commonly found are the lungs, heart and abdominal organs. Pleural Mesothelioma is cancer of the lung lining(组织膜)and is the most common form of Mesothelioma. What causes Mesothelioma? Mesothelioma is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos(石棉). Asbestos is often found in building materials used before the mid 1970's. In addition, materials such as pipes, boiler insulation, floor, ceiling and roof tiles may contain asbestos. How much asbestos exposure will cause Mesothelioma? Generally, the probability of developing this form of cancer is in accordance with the length of time you are exposed to asbestos. Also, your health is at risk if your exposure to asbestos is intense. It should be noted that Mesothelioma has a latency(潜 伏)period of 20 to 50 years. This means that you may develop the disease long after your exposure to asbestos. On average, people tend to develop Mesothelioma somewhere between 35 and 40 years after exposure. How quickly does Mesothelioma progress? The onset of Mesothelioma is quite slow. Patients will begin to experience symptoms such as lower back pain and chest pain. These symptoms may also be accompanied by weight loss, fever and difficulty breathing. Unfortunately, once Mesothelioma develops, it quickly becomes aggressive and treatment must be sought immediately. Can Mesothelioma be treated? Doctors are able to use several traditional methods of cancer treatment for Mesothelioma, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Like all forms of cancer, detecting the disease at the earliest stage possible greatly increases the patient's chances for survival. If you have worked in an industry such as construction or suspect that you may have been exposed to asbestos, be alert for symptoms and contact your doctor immediately. What legal courses of action can be taken? Anyone suffering from Mesothelioma is entitled to compensation from asbestos manufacturers. Additionally, if you are the spouse or child of someone who has died from Mesothelioma, you are entitled to file a claim and seek compensation. 29. The following are the symptoms of Mesothelioma EXCEPT ______. A．frequent headache B．lower back pain C．chest pain D．difficult breathing
30.We can learn from the text that _______. A．Asbestos is to blame for Mesothelioma. B．Even if a person is exposed to asbestos for a while, he will die soon. C．All the employees can ask for compensation from asbestos manufacturers. D．Mesothelioma is a cancer familiar to many people. 31.Which of the following would be the best title for the text? A．Terrible Mesothelioma B．Mesothelioma is around us C．Frequently Asked Questions About Mesothelioma D．Mesothelioma in on the rise 32.If you work in an industry exposed to asbestos, you should ________. A．give up the job immediately B．ask for a rise from your boss C．file a claim and seek compensation D．go to hospital and have your body examined D Durban — Canada Monday became the first country to pull out of the historic Kyoto Protocol (京都议定书), inescapably scarring the global anticlimate change efforts. The Kyoto Protocol, which set different duties for all countries to cut emissions ( 排放 ), states that different countries should reduce their collective greenhouse emissions accordingly. However, the United States refused to sign the protocol in 2001, and is the only developed country that has not agreed to sign it. The move has cast a shadow over the global community, and has made some other developed nations hesitate to cut their emissions. To add fuel to the fire, Canada, became the first to call it quits, with the deadline of the first commitment period (20082012) approaching. The biggest concern at this moment is whether other developed countries would follow suit. Over the past four years, a drama has unfolded among developed countries over the emissions cuts and offering support to their developing partners. The Umbrella Group, consisting of Japan, Canada, Australia, the United States and other developed countries, hesitated and even backed away from their positions under certain excuses. The first one quoted by Canadian Environment Minister Peter Kent is that emission cuts damage the economy. Still another is requiring China and India to have the same duty of cutting emissions as developed countries. Actually, if emissions in developed countries could fall to the levels in developing countries, it would greatly help the fight against global climate change. In sum, any irresponsible action, in the anticlimate change campaign should be a cause for blame. It is widely hoped that the United States and Canada will see reason and join the rest of the world community in supporting the Kyoto Protocol. 33．Which of the following serves as the best title of the passage? A．Canada Decides to Quit the Kyoto Protocol
B. Canada and the US Refuse to Cut Emissions C. Developed Countries Hesitating to Cut Emissions D. Developing Countries Supporting the Kyoto Protocol 34．According to the passage, ________ have refused to follow the Kyoto Protocol. A.Canada and Australia B．Japan and Canada C. the US and Canada D. China and India 35. People now are most worried ________. A．whether the US and Canada will return to the negotiation table B．whether developing countries will refuse to cut emissions C．whether China and India will carry the same duty as Canada D．whether more developed countries will do the same as Canada

36 You probably think you will never be a top student. This is not necessarily so, however. Anyone can become a better student if he or she wants to. Here’s how. Plan your time carefully. When planning your work, you should make a list of things that you have to do. After making this list, you should make a schedule of your time. First your time for eating, sleeping, dressing, etc. Then decide a good, regular time for studying. 37 A weekly schedule may not solve all your problems, but it will force you realize what is happening to your time. Find a good place to study. Look around the house for a good study area. Keep this space, which may be a desk or simply a corner of your room, free of everything but study materials. No games, radios, or television. When you sit down to study, concentrate on the subject. Make good use of your time in class. 38 Listening carefully in class means less work later. Taking notes will help you remember what the teacher says. Study regularly. When you get home from school, go over your notes.Review the important points that your teacher has mentioned in class. If you know what your teacher is going to discuss the next day, read that material. 39 If you do these things regularly, the material will become more meaningful, and you’ll remember it longer. Develop a good attitude towards tests. The purpose of a test is to show what you have learned about a subject. They help you remember your new knowledge. The world won’t end if you don’t pass a test, so don’t be over worried. 40 You will probably discover them after you have tried these. A.There are other methods that might help you with your studying. B.Don’t forget to set aside enough time for entertainment. C.Take advantage of class time to listen to everything the teacher says.

Being Senior Three students, we have a tight schedule and seem to have endless homework to do every day. Because of limited time, it’s important to be an efficient learner. But how can we become efficient learners? Firstly, we should make a realistic agenda, which lists all we have to do and the deadline to cover. Secondly, divide our spare time into several parts to make sure we go through all the subjects and try to be well-balanced students. Thirdly, take regular exercise to refresh our mind and energy and ensure we are healthy enough to get round our lessons. Remember: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Besides, hold informal seminars to discuss with classmates about difficult
problems and find best solutions. It’s also important to read extra books to ensure you feed on new ideas from time to time. All in all, efficiency is the key to success.
