Like it or not, there will be difficult times in our lives. You might lose your job, fail in your exams or have an illness. 1. Here are some ways not to lose hope during difficult times.

1.1Have faith.

2. No matter how bad the situation is, things will turn out to be good in the end. Several years ago I failed to get my master’s degree. It was a really bad experience.3. It was of much better quality than my previous university. Experiences like this strengthen my belief that having faith is important during difficult times.

2.Be around supportive people.

Going through difficult times is hard, and going through them alone is even harder. You need a group of positive people who can support you. 4. If you don’t, my suggestion is to start looking for one. Don’t wait until you need it, because it will be too late by then. You need the community before difficult times come.

3.Help others.

An additional benefit of being in a good community is that it encourages you to think about other people. It pushes you to help others and, therefore, think about other people. 5. As a result, your situation won’t look as bad as it would be otherwise. Often the situation looks worse than it really is because we give too much attention. Shifting(移开)some of your attention away will put the situation in a better view.

A.Your community helps a lot.

B.Whatever it is, it’s important not to lose hope.

C.However, I changed my attitude towards failure.

D.In this way you shift your focus away from yourself.

E.But I got a scholarship at an overseas university later.

F.You must believe that things will work out well eventually.

G.You should become part of a community that cares for one another.

People who have lost the ability to understand or use words due to brain damage are called aphasics(失语症患者).Such patients can be extremely good at something else.From the changing expressions on speakers' faces and the tones of their voices,they can tell lies from truths.

Doctors studying the human brain have given a number of examples of this amazing power of aphasics.Some have even compared this power to that of a dog with an ability to find out the drugs hidden in the baggage.

Recently,scientists carried out tests to see if all that was said about aphasics was true.They studied a mixed group of people.Some were normal;others were aphasics.It was proved that the aphasics were far ahead of the normal people in recognizing false speeches—in most cases,the normal people were fooled by words,but the aphasics were not.

Some years ago,Dr.Oliver Sacks wrote in his book about his experiences with aphasics.He mentioned a particular case in a hospital.Some aphasics were watching the president giving a speech on TV.Since the president had been an actor earlier,making a good speech was no problem for him.He was trying to put his feelings into every word of his speech.

But his way of speaking had the opposite effect on the patients.They didn't seem to believe him.Instead,they burst into laughter.The aphasics knew that the president did not mean a word of what he was saying.He was lying!

Many doctors see aphasics as people who are not completely normal because they lack the ability to understand words.However,according to Dr.Sacks,they are more gifted than normal people.Normal people may get carried away by words.Aphasics seem to understand human expressions better,though they cannot understand words.

1.What is so surprising about aphasics?

A. They can fool other people.

B. They can tell whether people are lying.

C. They can understand language better.

D. They can find out the hidden drugs.

2.How did the scientists study aphasics?

A. By asking them to watch TV together.

B. By organizing them into acting groups.

C. By comparing them with normal people.

D. By giving them chances to speak on TV.

3.What do we learn from this text?

A. What ones says reflects how one feels.

B. Aphasics have richer feelings than others.

C. Normal people often tell lies in their speeches.

D. People poor at one thing can be good at another.


The writer Margaret Mitchell is best known for writing Gone with the Wind, first published in 1936. Her book and the movie based on it, tell a story of love and survival during the American Civil War. Visitors to the Margaret Mitchell House in Atlanta, Georgia, can go where she lived when she started composing the story and learn more about her life.

Our first stop at the Margaret Mitchell House is an exhibit area telling about the writer’s life. She was born in Atlanta in 1900. She started writing stories when she was a child. She started working as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal newspaper in 1922. One photograph of Ms. Mitchell, called Peggy, shows her talking to a group of young college boys. She was only about one and a half meters tall. The young men tower over her, but she seems very happy and sure of herself. The tour guide explains: “Now in this picture Peggy is interviewing some boys from Georgia Tech, asking them such questions as ‘Would you really marry a woman who works?’ And today it’d be ‘Would you marry one who doesn’t?’ ”

The Margaret Mitchell House is a building that once contained several apartments. Now we enter the first floor apartment where Ms. Mitchell lived with her husband, John Marsh. They made fun of the small apartment by calling it “The Dump ” .

Around 1926, Margaret Mitchell had stopped working as a reporter and was at home healing after an injury. Her husband brought her books to read from the library. She read so many books that he bought her a typewriter and said it was time for her to write her own book. Our guide says Gone with the Wind became a huge success. Margaret Mitchell received the Pulitzer Prize for the book. In 1939 the film version was released. It won ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

1.The book Gone with the Wind was _________.

A. first published on a newspaper    B. awarded ten Academy Awards

2.The underlined phrase “tower over” in Paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to_________.

A. be very pleased with    B. show great respect for

C. be much taller than    D. show little interest in

3.Why did Ms. Mitchell stop working as a reporter according to the passage?

A. Because she was rich enough.    B. Because she was injured then.

C. Because her husband didn’t like it.    D. Because she wanted to write books.

4.Which is the best title for the passage?

Good morning, boys and girls,






Good afternoon, everyone, I feel honor to stand here to share my ideas about the topic of communicate with our parents.

Parents are the people which love us most, so it is necessary to keep a good relationship with them. Here are my suggestions with how to make it easier to communicate with parents.

First, we should respect and trust our parents. Don’t be rude to them even if they had done something wrong. They have been experienced more and always try their best to protect us from dangers. Second, whether we often talk with them about our life and experience, we will know each other better. Third, if sometimes we don’t agree with our parents decisions, we should try to put themselves in their shoes and we will soon understand them. Remember they really want is only the best for us.

Thank you for listening.

With time going by, people have come to understand the importance of protecting the environment. But they can’t deal with everything by themselves. Take small steps, and you can make a difference.

• Think Green. Think about the environment as you live your life. If you turn off lights and TV when leaving the room, you’ll save energy. 1..

• Shop Green. Shopping is fun, but buying things you don’t need is wasteful and even bad for the earth. 2.. And whenever possible, buy things locally made instead of those shipped from far away.

• Dress Green. What really matters is not the colour. 3.. So look for products made from environmentally friendly (环保的) materials.

4.. What’s better than learning about the environment? 5.. It can be as simple as using both sides of a piece of paper before you recycle it

A. Before you buy something, ask yourself how much you will use it.

B. Study Green.

C. It’s how the clothes were made.

D. You may care more about the qualities of the clothes.

A scanner is recently created by a group of professors. It is believed to predict the perfect job for anyone simply by reading their fingerprints. The group says that in the future, fingerprints could help tell a person’s key personalities.

To use the scanner, people place their fingers upon the fingerprint reader and computer technology connected with sensors (传感器) reads back what sort of job could suit the individual. The machine bases its results on a collection of a large amount of information in the computer about how fingerprint shapes connect with job selection.

Local companies help researchers from the city’s Kuban University of Physical Education and Sport to test the technology.

Twenty - one - year - old Oscar Galkin, a mathematics graduate, said: “I got the result from the scanner that I would suit a job in IT, which is exactly what I want to do. I don’t know if it is luck or if it can really read a person’s talents, but it worked for me.”

And Zara Tokareva, aged 20, who feels uncomfortable at the sight of blood, said: “I want to be a house designer but the machine said I should be a nurse. So, no, I don’t think it is as clever as expected.”

Though fingerprint identification has been widely used in crime discovering, it is still a science that has a lot of possibility of being used, say experts, from discovering drug misuse to personality analysis - exactly as hand readers have been saying to do for centuries.

“The basic idea is that although everybody’s fingerprints are completely different, there are obvious features that are common on the fingers of certain professionals working in certain jobs,” said researcher Ravil Yudin.

It’s not really a new idea because hand readers have been saying for hundreds of years that you can tell a person’s future by reading their hands. We want to match that by looking at fingerprints and trying to tell what career path people would choose.

1.From the text we know that the fingerprint scanner       .

A. matches fingerprints with jobs    B. tells people’s personality

C. helps collect job information    D. reads individual’s mind

2.What can we learn from what Ravil Yudin said?

A. The fingerprint scanner is based on a new idea.

B. Cerain people’s fingers actually have something in common.

C. Telling one’s future by reading his hands started a few years ago.

D. The technology of fingerprint identification can be used in many fields.

3.What is the main idea of the passage?

A. Hand readers are widely used in life.

B. A fingerprint scanner could tell a person’s personality.

C. A fingerprint scanner could predict a person’s job.

D. A fingerprint scanner could be used in crime discovering.


Tim was walking home from school one day when he noticed a boy ahead of him. He had tripped (绊倒) and dropped all of the books he was carrying along with some clothes, a baseball bat and a glove.

Tim knelt down and helped the boy pick up the things. Since they were going the same way, he offered to carry some things for the boy.

As they walked, Tim knew that the boy’s name was Sam. He loved video games, baseball and history, but he was having trouble with some of his subjects.

They arrived at Sam’s home first. Tim was invited in for a Coke and to watch some television. The afternoon passed pleasantly with some laughs and talk. Then Tim went home.

They continued to see each other at school and had lunch together once or twice a week.

Three days before they finished high school, Sam asked Tim if they could talk. Sam reminded Tim of the day years ago when they had first met. “Did you ever wonder why I was carrying so many things home that day?’’ asked Sam. “You see, I took away all my things from school. I had stored away some of my mother’s sleeping pills. I was going home to kill myself. But after we spent some time talking and laughing, I realized that if I had died, I would have missed so many good times.

There are various camps. Have you heard about ‘‘Survival Camp”? “Survival Camp” is for children to go into the lonely place for exciting activities. Now about 1,100 companies are allowed to take children into the great outdoors without their parents.

The reason why people like “Survival Camp” is that they think getting close to nature is good for children. Many children in big cities spend all time watching TV and playing computer games. “Survival Camp” gives them an important change.

Is “Survival Camp” a wonderful idea? Maybe it is. Children need more free time to play. They need to be left on their own, without adults disturbing (打扰) them. Parents care too much about their children. They like to see the children being busy with activities that are controlled by adults but children don’t know what to do when they are in danger. Even something like crossing a small river seems to be a hard challenge. Children are not comfortable with danger. Even small danger like getting their feet wet or falling down seems very terrible to them.

Many people think the survival activities are good for children. Even years later, they will still remember what they have learned. Some have learned to stay calm in different times. Some have learned how to keep safe. Others have learned how to work in a team. All these skills will help them a lot in their lives.

When I intended to tell my four-year-old niece Lisa the story Snow White write by the Grimm Brothers, my elder sister stopped me immediate and gave me another storybook. When I asked if she has told Lisa the story, she shook her head and said, “I don’t think girl today should listen to this story.” I was confusing. Later, my sister explained how. In this story, Snow White does nothing to rescue herself. Instead of, she depends on others’ help. My sister doesn’t want her daughter to learn just to turn to others help. She wants her to learn to be brave and independence. That’s why my sister doesn’t want to tell herself such stories as Snow White.

How to Say No to Your Boss

Saying “no” to a request can be a difficult thing, especially when the person making the request is your boss.1.The following steps are helpful.

Give yourself some time to think about the request before saying “no”.

If the request arrives via email, don’t reply right away.

2.If your boss asks you in person or on the telephone, request some time to give it thought and tell her you will get back to her by a specific time. Consider the request carefully to determine whether you have to say “no”.

Prepare your answer before telling your boss “no”.

Anticipate questions she might ask in response to your answer, and decide how you want to answer them. Rehearse your conversation with your boss out loud to help build your confidence before the real conversation.

Choose the right time and place to speak with your boss.

Have the conversation in private if your work situation allows you to get a moment alone with your boss. Keep in mind your boss’s workday pressures and work style. If she is a morning person and gets grumpy(脾气暴躁的)in the afternoon, be sure to speak with her before lunch.


If your boss is asking you to take on more responsibility, that shows that she has faith in your ability to do the job. Acknowledge that it means a lot to you before telling her that you feel you cannot do it.

Tell your boss why you have to say “no” to the request.

4.Your boss will be grateful that you answered honestly, rather than trying to take on a project you cannot handle.

Offer an alternative solution.

For example, if your boss asks you to serve on a committee, suggest someone else in the company that you think may be interested and capable of serving.5.

A. Pay your boss a compliment while denying her request.

B. Even if you try your best to do everything the boss lets you do, there are times when you can’t do and have to say “no”.

C. Put yourself in your boss’s shoes and consider how the company will be affected if you refuse the request.

D. Maybe you could offer to share the workload with someone else.

E. Most employers respect honesty in their employees.

F. Try a compromise.

G. Set the request aside and think about it for a while.


People do not analyze every problem they meet. Sometimes they try to remember a solution from the last time they had a similar problem. They often accept the opinions or ideas of other people. Other times they begin to act without thinking. They try to find a solution by trial and error. However, when all these methods fail, the person with a problem has to start analyzing. There are six stages in analyzing a problem.

First, the person must recognize that there is a problem. For example, Sam’s bicycle is broken, and he cannot ride it to class as he usually does. Sam must see that there is a problem with his bicycle.

Next, the thinker must define the problem. Before Sam can repair his bicycle, he must find out the reason why it does not work. For instance, he must determine if the problem is with the gears, the brakes, or the frame. He must make his problem more specific.

Now the person must look for information that will make the problem clearer and lead to possible solutions. For instance, suppose Sam decided that his bike does not work because there is something wrong with the gear wheels. At this time, he can look in his bicycle repair book and read about gears. He can talk to his friends at the bike shop. He can look at his gears carefully.

After studying the problem, the person should have several suggestions for a possible solution. Take Sam as an illustration. His suggestions might be: put oil on the gear wheels; buy new gear wheels and replace the old ones; tighten or loosen the gear wheels.

Eventually one suggestion seems to be the solution to the problem. Sometimes the final idea comes very suddenly because the thinker suddenly sees something new or sees something in a new way. Sam, for example, suddenly sees that there is a piece of chewing gum between the gear wheels. He immediately realizes the solution to his problem: he must clean the gear wheels.

Finally the solution is tested. Sam cleans the gear wheels and finds that afterwards his bicycle works perfectly. In short , he has solved the problem.

Almost everybody in America will spend a part of his or her life behind a shopping cart. They will, in a lifetime, push the chrome-plated contraptions many miles. But few will know—or even think to ask—who it was that invented them.

Sylvan N. Goldman invented the shopping cart in 1937. At that time he was in the supermarket business.Every day he would see shoppers lugging groceries around in baskets they had to carry.

One day Goldman suddenly had the idea of putting baskets on wheels. The wheeled baskets would make shopping much easier for his customers, and would help to attract more business.

On June 4, 1937, Goldman’s first carts were ready for use in his market. He was terribly excited on the morning of that day as customers began arriving. He couldn’t wait to see them using his invention.

But Goldman was disappointed. Most shoppers gave the carts a long look, but hardly anybody would give them a try.

After a while, Goldman decided to ask customers why they weren’t using his carts. “Don’t you think this arm is strong enough to carry a shopping basket?” one shopper replied.

But Goldman wasn’t beaten yet. He knew his carts would be a great success if only he could persuade people to give them a try. To this end, Goldman hired a group of people to push carts around his market and pretend they were shopping! Seeing this, the real customers gradually began copying the phony customers.

As Goldman had hoped, the carts were soon attracting larger and larger numbers of customers to his market. But not only did more people come—those who came bought more. With larger, easier-to-handle baskets, customers unconsciously bought a greater number of items than before.

Today’s shopping carts are five times larger than Goldman’s original model. Perhaps that’s one reason Americans today spend more than five times as much money on food each year as they did before 1937—before the coming of the shopping cart.

A. Goldman will become very famous because of his invention.

B. Goldman's invention will be regarded as the greatest one in the world.

C. Supermarket business has benefited a lot from Goldman's invention.

D. There will be nothing that can replace Goldman's invention.


Many countries follow special customs when a child’s baby teeth fall out. Many of these customs tell stories about animals taking the teeth.

For example, Koreans have the custom of throwing the fallen tooth onto the roof of a house so that a magpie (喜鹊) can take the tooth away and bring a new tooth for the child. This custom is also followed by some other Asian countries, such as Japan and Vietnam.

Other countries, though, have tooth customs about other animals. In Mexico and Spain, for example, it is thought that a mouse takes a fallen tooth away and leaves some money. But in Mongolia, it is dogs that take children’s teeth away. Dogs are highly respected in Mongolian culture. It is believed that the new tooth will grow strong if the baby tooth is fed to a dog, so parents in Mongolia will put their children’s fallen teeth in a piece of meat and feed it to a dog.

In France and the USA, a child will put a fallen tooth under his or her pillow before going to bed. It is thought that in the early morning, when the child is still sleeping, the Tooth Fairy will take the tooth away and leave something else under the pillow. What she will leave is hard to know. It is said that in France the Tooth Fairy may leave some candies; however, in the United States, she may leave money.

Everyone needs friends. We all like to feel close to someone. It is nice to have a friend to talk, laugh and do things with. Surely, there are times when we need to be alone. We don't always want people around. But we would feel lonely if we never had a friend.

No two people are the same. Sometimes friends don't get along well, which doesn't mean that they no longer like each other. Most of the time they will go on being friends. Sometimes friends move away, then we feel very sad. We miss them much, but we can call them and write to them. Maybe we would never see them again, and we can make new friends. It is surprising to find out how much we like new people when we get to know them. Families sometimes name their children after a close friend. Many places are named after men and women, if they are friendly to people in a town. Some libraries are named this way. So are some schools. We think of these people when we go to these places.

There's more good news for people, if they have friends. These people live longer than those people if those don't have friends. Why? It could be that they are happier. Being happy helps you stay well. Or it could be just knowing that someone cares, if someone cares about you, you take better care of yourself.
