第一节(共15小题;每小题分,满分分)
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。
ARaised in a motherless home, my father was extremely tightfisted towards us children. His attitude didn’t soften as I grew into adulthood and went to college. I had to ride the bus whenever I came home. Though the bus stopped about two miles from home, Dad never met me, even in severe weather. If I grumbled, he’d say in his loudest father-voice, “That’s what your legs are for!”
The walk didn’t bother me as much as the fear of walking alone along the highway and country roads. I also felt less than valued that my father didn’t seem concerned about my safety. But that feeling was cancelled one spring evening.
It had been a particularly difficult week at college after long hours in labs. I longed for home. When the bus reached the stop, I stepped off and dragged my suitcase to begin the long journey home.
A row of hedge(树篱)edged the driveway that climbed the hill to our house. Once I had turned off the highway to start the last lap of my journey, I always had a sense of relief to see the hedge because it meant that I was almost home. On that particular evening, the hedge had just come into view when I saw something gray moving along the top of the hedge, moving toward the house. Upon closer observation, I realized it was the top of my father’s head. Then I knew, each time I’d come home, he had stood behind the hedge, watching, until he knew I had arrived safely. I swallowed hard against the tears. He did care, after all.
On later visits, that spot of gray became my watchtower. I could hardly wait until I was close enough to watch for its secret movement above the greenery. Upon reaching home, I would find my father sitting innocently in his chair. “So! My son, it’s you!” he’d say, his face lengthening into pretended surprise.
I replied, “Yes, Dad, it’s me. I’m home.”   
21. What does the underlined word “grumbled” in Paragraph 1 probably mean?
A. Accepted happily.	B. Spoke unhappily.
C. Agreed willingly.	D. Explained clearly.
22. What made the author feel upset was ______.
A. the tiredness after long hours in labs.  
B. the fear of seeing something moving. 
C. the feeling of being less than valued.
D. the loneliness of riding the bus home.   
23. The author’s father watched behind the hedge because ______.
A. he wanted to help his son build up courage. 
B. he was concerned about his son’s safety.
C. he didn’t want to meet his son at the doorway.
D. he didn’t think his son was old enough to walk alone.
24. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. Terrible Journey Home.	B. My College Life.
C. My Father’s Secret.	D. Riding Bus Alone.

Deaf teenagers Orlando Chavez and German Resendiz have been friends since kindergarten. Together the two boys, who go to Escondido High School in California, have had the difficult job of learning in schools where the majority of the students can speak and hear.
Orlando lost his hearing at the age of one. German was born deaf, and his parents moved from Mexico to find a school where he could learn sign language. He met Orlando on their first day of kindergarten.
“We were in a special class with about 25 other deaf kids,” German remembers. “Before then, I didn’t know I was deaf and that I was different.”
“Being young and deaf in regular classes was very hard,” signs Orlando. “The other kids didn’t understand us and we didn’t understand them. But we’ve all grown up together, and today, I’m popular because I’m deaf. Kids try hard to communicate with me.”
Some things are very difficult for the two boys.“We can’t talk on the phone, so if we need help, we can’t call an emergency service,” German signs. “And we can’t order food in a drive-thru.”
Despite their difficulties, the two boys have found work putting food in bags at a local supermarket. They got their jobs through a “workability” program, designed for teenagers from local schools with different types of learning disabilities.
German has worked in the supermarket since August, and Orlando started in November.
“The other people who work here have been very nice to us,” Orlando signs.“They even sign sometimes. At first, we were nervous, but we’ve learned a lot and we’re getting better.”
The opportunity to earn money has been exciting, both boys said. After high school, they hope to attend the National Technical Institute for the Deaf in New York.
25.Orlando and German have been
A.to Mexico together.
B.deaf since they were born.
C.friends since they were very young.
D.to different high schools.
.The word “emergency” in paragraph 5 is closest in meaning to
A.food.B.crisis.C.alarm.D.quick.
.Both boys are happy to
A.have the opportunity to earn money.
B.work at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
C.help students with learning disabilities.
D.design programs for the deaf.C
Immigration is the act of coming to a foreign country to live. The act of leaving one's country to settle in another is called emigration. Immigrants who flee their country because of persecution, war, or such disasters as famines or epidemics are known as refugees or displaced persons. Most people find it very hard to pull up roots in their native land and move to a strange country. But throughout history, countless millions of people have done so. The heaviest immigration worldwide took place from the early 1800's to the Great Depression, the economic hard times of the 1930's. In that period, about 60 million people moved to a new land. Most came from Europe. More than half immigrated to the United States. Other destinations included Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Today, the availability of fast, safe, and cheap transportation helps make migration easier. Asia is replacing Europe as the major immigrant-sending area. The United States remains the chief receiving nation. 
People abandon their homeland and move to another country for various reasons. 
The main reason for immigration has long been economic opportunity----the desire for better land or a better job. During the 1800's, for example, the rich prairie land of the United States attracted many European farmers. Today, professional people commonly emigrate because of better opportunities elsewhere. Such emigration has sometimes been called brain drain. Many doctors and nurses and numerous engineers and scientists have moved to the United States. 
Religious persecution has led many people to move to a new land for the freedom to practice their faith. Such immigrants include Jews expelled from England in the 1200's.
Wars, revolutions, and political unrest have driven innumerable people to find new homes. In the 1990's alone, millions of refugees fled from warfare in Afghanistan, Iraq, Liberia, Iran, Uganda, Southeastern Asia, and Central America. 
Some immigrants were brought to a new land against their will. From the 1500's to the 1800's Europeans shipped black Africans to the Western Hemisphere as slaves. The United Kingdom transported prisoners to Australia from the late 1700s to the 1860s to relieve over crowding in British jails. Before that time, the United Kingdom sent prisoners to the American colonies.
Immigrants have made enormous contributions to the culture and economy of such nations as Australia, Canada, New Zealand the United States. But their accomplishments have been made with great difficulty. At times, the United States, like many receiving countries, has restricted immigration to maintain a more homogeneous society in which all the people share the same ethnic, geographic, and cultural background. Although some immigration laws have been relaxed, many new comers of different backgrounds still face challenges in gaining acceptance.
28. Most Immigrants to the United States in the nineteenth century came from _______.
A. Europe        B. Asia          C. Australia     D. South Africa
29. There are altogether______ reasons  of immigration listed in the passage.
A.2              B.3              C. 4             D. 5
30.The main reason for immigration is __________according to the passage.
A. slavery trade                      B. religious persecution
C. economic opportunity               D. political unrest
31.In the last paragraph ,?a homogeneous society?is one in which__________.
A. immigration  laws  have been relaxed.  
B. people from different backgrounds live harmoniously together.
C. a brain drain occurs.
D. people share the same ethnic,  geographic, and cultural backgrounds. 
D
A popular CCTV host’s “improper remarks” that were caught on video at a dinner party have led to an investigation into the incident and a suspension of his programs.
The video, released online on Monday, showed host Bi Fujian using vulgar words about Chairman Mao Zedong while singing in the style of Peking Opera, enraging(激怒) some netizens and causing a stir on the Internet.
CCTV said on its micro blog on Wednesday that it will investigate the incident, which it said many have found disturbing.
Bi’s programs will stop being broadcast until at least Sunday, as his comments in the video have seriously damaged the broadcaster’s image, Huaxi Metropolis Daily quoted a CCTV staff member as saying.
The CCTV employee said it is uncertain whether the programs can be broadcast again after Sunday, the report added.
Bi, 56, is popular for a hosting style that engages the audience. He has hosted the CCTV Spring Festival Gala since 2012, as well as a popular talent show involving Westerners speaking Chinese. The cancellation was the first decision after Nie Chenxi was named CCTV president on Tuesday, the report said, adding that Nie had ordered all staff members to strictly correct work styles.
A micro-blogger named Zhou Junchi said that free speech doesn’t mean it is OK to defame others, adding that Bi’s comments were not proper for a popular host. Cheng Manli, a professor specializing in communication at Peking University, echoed Zhou, saying Bi should pay more attention to his behavior and speech as a public figure.
“It does not mean we cannot share our opinions, but using ugly words and sarcasm to comment on Chinese leaders who have passed away is improper,” Cheng said.
“The actions and words of celebrities are easily broadened in today’s Internet era, which is open and can have a huge influence, so it is a must for the public figures to boost the quality of their speech and behavior. Otherwise, their images will be affected, such as the stars who were recently punished for drug use,” she said.
“Everyone should take responsibility for what he or she says in public and online. It’s better, I think, to share different ideas in a normal way,” she suggested. But she added that the party in the video seemed private, “so its release is also improper to some extent.”
The video was recorded by someone sitting on Bi’s right, but who it is and why the video was put online is unknown.  
32. According to the passage, CCTV’s  response when the incident happened was ______. 
A. to change his job
 B. to have Bi Fujian fired
C. to look into the matter
D. to make him apologize 
33. We can learn from the passage that _______. 
A. Bi Fujian’s program will be stopped forever
B. the incident happened before the new CCTV president’s arrival 
C. the video was recorded when Bi Fujian was working in a program
D. Huaxi Metropolis Daily thinks the incident damages CCTV’s image
34. As is mentioned in the passage, Chen Manli holds the view that________.
A. Bi Fujian should be severely punished
B. a celebrity’s influence can be enlarged through the Internet 
C. public figures should not share their opinions
D. it is all right to release private video of a celebrity
35. The underlined word “boost” probably means “_________”.
A. cover            B. improve        C. influence        D. solve

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。
You might take a car, a bus, or a bike to school. But in Bangladesh, instead of waiting for a school bus to come down their street, many students wait for a school boat to come down the river. That’s right—these students attend school on a boat!
Bangladesh is very close to sea level.______36______ The flooding creates many problems. For the nearly 160 million people living there, the periodic flooding means that they are often unable to access roads, electricity, or telephones.
Growing up in Bangladesh, Mohammed Rezwan was often troubled by these disruptions(破坏). ______37_____ The name means “self-reliance (自力更生).” The purpose of the organization is to help the people of Bangladesh receive an education and also to bring technology and an improved quality of life to poor people in remote areas of the country. In 2002, Rezwan began transforming boats into schools. Each boat was built to house between 30 and 35 students. The boats had everything you might find in a regular classroom. The only difference was that they floated on a river.
______38______ Today Rezwan and his organization operate 88 boats in northern Bangladesh. About half the boats are used as schools, and the other half are used as temporary houses during the flood season. In addition to the schools and the temporary housing, there are also a floating technology and training center, a library that allows students to check out books, and a health-care center. The school boats travel along the rivers and pick up students for classes that include computer technology, agriculture, and human rights. 
At night the boats provide additional learning opportunities for students and adults. ______39______ They study using solar lamps that are charged during the day at stations near the river. Special equipment on the boats also projects lessons onto big screens made from sail cloth. People can come down to the river bank to watch films. In all, these boats help educate close to 90,000 families in Bangladesh. 
By floating down the rivers, the school boats provide more than books. ______40______ “This ‘library’ boat inspired me,” said 18-year-old student Shanto Islam, who enjoys reading science fiction books. “I started to dream.” Islam now wants to attend a university.
A. For this reason the land is flooded for five months of every year.
B. They also deliver knowledge, opportunity, and hope to all generations. 
C. Parents living in the area are happy to have the boats.
D. He did not want to design houses, though.
E. In 1998 he founded an organization called Shidhulai. 
F. These boats have been a great success.
G. Both of them can attend evening courses.

书面表达
  There is no denying that safety plays an important part in our daily life. Recently our school has carried out a program aimed at making our campus a 
safe place to stay on.
  As we all know, as a student,we spend most of our time staying on campus, so it is very necessary for us to obey the school rules. To protect ourselves from being hurt, we shouldn’t chase each other in the hallway and in the school yard after class; we should keep in order when on the stairs; Even when we are doing sports, we should attach importance to the safety and avoid being hurt; Sometimes we are likely to get into trouble with our classmates. Once coming into conflict, we ought to remain calm and avoid any form of fighting, because it may only bring suffering and pain to us mentally and physically. 
In my opinion, I consider this program as indeed a good practice, which will make us aware that safety should always come first in our daily life. Only by strengthening  our security awareness, can we make ourselves safe and sound on campus.
That is so much for my idea about this activity. Thank you for listening.
