I used to listen only halfheartedly when my parents told me I should be thankful for what I had. Things 21 when I had the opportunity to go to Africa. 22 on Bugala Island, Uganda, I had a chance to meet the girl I 23 . Her name was Annette, and her parents had died of AIDS. Through the thirty-dollar donation my family made each month, Annette was able to live in a group home and go to school. She was a girl of my own age who owned only two dresses. Before we 24 for our trip, my mom and I thought about buying Annette a 25 . I’m glad that we didn’t because I soon saw she had nothing to put in it. When I first met Annette, she hugged me cautiously – 26 , she had never seen a Caucasian(白种人) girl before. Annette spoke English fairly well, so we could talk. 27 , it didn’t take long for us to form a friendship. She showed me the room she 28 with twenty other orphan girls. Our life experiences couldn’t have been more 29 , yet there we were... hanging out like old friends. On the last night of our trip, the kids there planned a(n) 30 for me. They all invited me to 31 their dance. Trying to copy their dance, I fell short and resorted to my preschool years of moving and waving my body wildly to the 32 of the drums and chanting of the children. They laughed crazily at my 33 at African dance. After the dancing, the home director announced a special 34 – a small homemade cake! Annette and I cut up the cake, and all 120 kids 35 waited for the rare treat. Annette cut the cake into smaller and smaller pieces... and I then went around and passed them out, and 36 child picked up a tiny piece. Everyone 37 at me as they ate their tiny piece of cake. No one asked for seconds, and no one 38 to sneak two pieces. They were simply happy with 39 they had. In the United States, my friends would have 40 about the tiny piece of cake. “We want a bigger piece! Where’s the ice cream?” I found myself happily eating a few cake crumbs next to Annette. 21.

I had been a step-mother for six years, and with my husband,I had watched his young children growing into teenagers. Although they lived mostly with their mother, they spent a lot of time with us. Over the years, we all learned to become more comfortable with each other. However, I continued to feel somewhat like an outsider. When the children moved to a town five hours away, my husband was understandably destroyed. In order to keep in touch with the kids, we set up an e-mail and chat-line service. Ironically (具有讽刺意义的是), this technology can make us feel out of touch and more in need of real human contact. If a computer message came addressed to “Dad”, I'd feel forgotten. If my name appeared along with his, it would brighten my day. Yet always there was some distance to be crossed, not just over the telephone wires. Late one evening, as my husband was snoozing (打盹), I was catching up on my e-mail, an “instant message” appeared on the screen. It was Margo, my oldest stepdaughter, also up late in front of her computer. We sent several messages back and forth, exchanging the latest news. When we “chatted” like that, she wouldn’t necessarily know if it was me or her dad unless she asked. That night she didn’t ask and I didn’t tell her it was me either. After hearing the latest volleyball scores and the details about a coming dance at her school, I said that it was late and I should go to sleep. Her return message read, “Okay, talk to you later! Love you!” At this, a wave of sadness ran through me and I realized that she must have thought she was writing to her father the whole time. She and I would never have openly exchange such words of love. Feeling guilty (内疚的) for not telling her the truth, yet not wanting to embarrass (使人 尴尬) her, I simply replied, “Love you too! Have a good sleep!” I thought again of their family circle and I felt again the sharp ache of emptiness and “otherness”. Then, just as my fingers reached for the keys to return the screen to black, Margo's final message appeared. It read, “Tell Dad good night for me too.” With tear-filled eyes, I turned the machine off. 1. Why was the author’s husband ever understandably destroyed at first? A. he couldn’t see his children often. B. he had an unhappy marriage. C. his children didn’t like him any longer. D. he had got a kind of serious disease. 2. By saying “Yet always there was some distance to be crossed,” the writer infers that ______. A. their children lived in a town five hours away B. their children had to talk to them on the phone C. there was a generation gap between them D. the relationship between them was not so close 3. The author thought that Margo must have mistaken her for her father because ______. A. her father liked to chat about her activities B. her father always stopped chatting like that C. Margo never said goodbye to the author in this way D. Margo never chatted with the author alone 4. From this passage, we can learn that a step-parent can ______. A. never know the special relationship between a parent and a child B. exchange e-mails and messages with step-children C. be part of the “inner circle” of the family D. never be liked by his or her step-children 5. How was the experience of the author as a stepmother that night? A. Heart-warming. B. Full of sadness. C. Heart-breaking. D. Disappointing.

Football, to me, is more than just a game. I have probably learned more valuable lessons from it than from school. When I joined the team freshman year, I didn’t realize what I was getting into. Even though I had been playing since fourth grade and knew it was hard work, nothing would prepare me for the effort I would put into football that year. We worked all summer in the weight room and ran on the track(跑道) to get in physical and mental(精神上的) shape before the season. See, football is more of a mental sport than anything else, so running on the track wasn’t only about getting in shape. We would push our minds by running as hard as we could even if we were going to pass out. At the beginning, I was immature(幼稚) and only thought of myself, sometimes even gave up when I was tired or hurt. Then after the third game I had a season-ending injury. Imagine working all summer and then only being able to play three games! I needed surgery(外科手术) on my arm and at least five months to recover. Needless to say, I missed the rest of the season, but this actually helped me realize that since you never know when your last play will be, you should try your hardest in football and life. After freshman year I decided that I would always give my best effort. Playing varsity(校队的) football has taught me so much more than just what my assignments are on a particular play or how to block. I have learned to think about others first and realized how important working hard is. Being with all my friends, even sweating and bleeding with them, really made us bond as a group of hard-working young men who I know will succeed in life. 45. What is the main idea of the passage? A. How the author dislikes the game of football. B. When the author began to play football. C. What sport the author likes best. D. How the author has changed his attitude to football. 46. In the third paragraph, the underlined phrase “getting in shape” probably means “____”. A. designing the playground B. becoming healthy C. losing weight D. measuring the track 47. From the text we can infer ______. A. the author worked all summer to get ready for the season. B. football only brought the author certain assignments. C. the author never lost heart when he met with difficulty. D. the author joined the football team with a clear aim. 48. What did the author get from his season-ending injury? A. A good chance on the team. B. A good lesson about life. C. A good relationship with his partners. D. A good rest as he expected.四:短文 改错(共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分) At first, I was not quite willing to sit down and watched the 90-minute football match.Usually I just checked the results because I thought that was dull to watch a game in that players kicked a ball to each other.Therefore, my father loves football.During the World Cup in 2006, my dad stays up late just to watch his favourite sport. Seeing him strongly interest in this game of 22 men run after a ball, I decided to sit down to watch the game.I found game exciting, and my dad explained for the rules.We shared our joy.Football is not too badly as long as I watch it with my dad!

When something goes wrong, it can be very satisfying to say, "Well, it's so-and-so's fault. "or "I know I'm late, but it's not my fault; the car broke down. " It is probably not your fault, but once you form the habit of blaming somebody or something else for a bad situation, you are a loser. You have no power and could do nothing that helps change the situation. However, you can have great power over what happens to you if you stop focusing on whom to blame and start focusing on how to remedy the situation. This is the winner's key to success. Winners are great at overcoming problems. For example, if you were late because your car broke down, maybe you need to have your car examined more regularly. Or, you might start to carry along with you the useful phone numbers, so you could call for help when in need. For another example, if your colleague causes you problems on the job for lack of responsibility or ability, find ways of dealing with his irresponsibility or inability rather than simply blame the person. Ask to work with a different person, or don't rely on this person. You should accept that the person is not reliable and find creative ways to work successfully regardless of how your colleague fails to do his job well. This is what being a winner is all about-creatively using your skills and talents so that you are successful no matter what happens. Winners don't have fewer problems in their lives; they have just as many difficult situation to face as anybody else. They are just better at seeing those problems as challenges and opportunities to develop their own talents. So, stop focusing on "whose fault it is. " Once you are confident about your power over bad situations, problems are just stepping stones for success. 46. According to the passage, winners . A. deal with problems rather than blame others B. meet with fewer difficulties in their byes C. have responsible and able colleagues D. blame themselves rather than others 47. The underlined word “remedy” in Paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to . A. avoid B. accept C. improve . consider 48. When your colleague brings about a problem, you should . A. find a better way to handle the problem B. blame him for his lack of responsibility C. tell him to find the cause of the problem D. ask a more able colleague for help 49. When problems occur, winners take them as . A. excuses for their failures B. barriers to greater power C. challenges to their colleagues D. chances for self-development 50. Which of the following is the best title for the passage? . A. A Winner's Achievement. B. A Winner's Problem. C. A Winner's Opportunity. D. A Winner's Secret. 改错 With help of the Internet, shopping is not a difficult work. Just clicking your mouse to choose the article you like, and the shopping is finished. You needn’t step out the room. It seems easy and quick. And there’s always a problem online. If you are careless, it will bring you trouble. You may find the color of the article is differently from what you want, or the size is either too small nor too big. If you want to be different, you’d better not to buy clothes online. Once you put up the clothes you bought online and go out, you will find many people in the street wearing the same clothes like you. Better English Better Life


In the fall of 1985. I was a bright-eyed girl heading off to Howard University, aiming at a legal career and dreaming of sitting on a Supreme Court bench somewhere. Twenty-one years later I am still a bright-eyed dreamer and one with quite a different tale to tell. My grandma, an amazing woman, graduated from college an the age of 65. She was the first in our family to reach that goal. But one year after I started college, she developed cancer. I made the choice to withdraw from college to care for her. It meant that school and my personal dream would have to wait. Then I got married with another dream: building my family with a combination of adopt and biological children. In 1999, we adopted our first son. To lay eyes on him was fantastic---and very emotional. A year later came our second adopted boy. Then followed son No. 3. In 2003, I gave birth to another boy. You can imagine how fully occupied I became, raising four boys under the age of 8! Our home was a complete zoo---a joyous zoo. Not surprising, I never did make it back to college full-time. But I never gave up on the dream either. I had only one choice: to find a way. That meant talking as few as one class each semester. The hardest part was feeling guilty about the time I spent away from the boys. They often wanted me to stay home with them. There certainly were times I wanted to quit, But I knew I should set an example for them to follow through the rest of their lives. In 2007, I graduated from the University of North Carolina. It took me over 21 years to get my college degree! I am not special, just single-minded. It always struck me that when you’re looking at a big challenge from the outside it looks huge, but when you’re in the midst of it, it just seems normal. Everything you want won’t arrive in your life on one day. It’s a process. Remember; little steps add up to big dreams. 51. When the author went to Howard University, her dream was to be A. a writer B. a judge C. a doctor D. a teacher 52. Why did the author quit school in her second year of college? A. She wanted to study by herself. B. She fell in love and got married. C. She decided to look after her grandma. D. She suffered from a serious illness. 53. What can we learn about the author from Paragraphs 4 and 5? A. She was busy yet happy with her family life. B. She ignored her guilty feeling for her sons. C. She wanted to remain a full-time housewife. D. She was too confused to make a correct choice. 54. What dose the author mostly want to tell us in the last paragraph? A. Failure is the mother of success. B. Well begun ,half done. C. Every coin has two sides. D. Little by little ,one goes far. 55.Which of the following can best describe the author ? A. Honest and responsible. B. Caring and determine. C. Ambitious and sensitive . D. Innocent and single-minded. Better English Better Life
