The night before the move，I spoke with a sophomore(大学二年级)friend of mine who was moving back the next morning．I asked if he was sad to be leaving home and his response sparked in me an internal debate．“It was nice to be back but honestly。I’ve come to think of the college as my home．”Up until that moment，the move to college seemed like an extended version of summer camp．School wasn’t a home；it was a place for me to explore when I was away from home? right? As I packed my things， I really started thinking about the concept of home， and I couldn’t help but wonder?would I ever consider college my own home? The next day，once my bags were unpacked and my parents were gone，I took a moment to look around my dorm．It was absolutely nothing like my room?no bunnies，no blue curtains and no queen—sized bed．Despite the fun I was having and things I was learning in the following Welcome Week，I couldn’t bring myself to call it home．I longed for my bunnies．I even wanted my mom’s calls．“There’s no place like home．”I murmured． Last night，I went to visit my friends and we spent the next hour talking about that missing feeling we all shared-our families，our friends，our old lives—and soon the sadness turned to fondness．One by one our friends came in to say goodnight and the room was filled with girls，all laughing and shari ng our high school experiences．It wasn’t until about l：00 a．m．that I turned to my roommate，unconsciously saying，“It’s getting late?we should probably go home soon．”I was taken aback by my own words．Somehow in the few hours， my dorm room had turned into a home． 21．How did the author react to her sophomore friend’s response at first? A．She quite agreed with her friend． B．She was completely certain about it． C．She thought he was telling a lie． D．She was surprised by his response。 22．The author mentioned the bunnies twice in the passage to suggest that . A．college lacked a friendly atmosphere B．she didn’t get used to her college life then C．pet-keeping was not allowed in college dorm D．college should prepare bunnies for new students 2 3．Whv was the author taken aback by her own words at the end of the passage? A．Because she began to call her college a home． B．Because there were so many girls gathering in the dorm． C．Because she lost a good chance to forget homesickness． D．Because it was rude to say that when everyone was happy．
24．What made the author begin to take college as a home? A．Decorating her dorm like a home． B．Her previous family lives. C．Friends’ shared feelings． D．Comforts from other girls. B Step into an American preschool classroom today and you are likely to fall into a so-called print-rich environment，every surface colorfully decorated with instructional posters，classroom rules，chedules，and mottos，few of which a 4-year-old can understand in fact． Besides the confusing things on classroom walls，teaching methods and curriculums have changed recently，by which more time is spent on what’s called “seat work”一 workbooks and worksheets—but less time devoted to music and art ． School—readiness skills are essential for the youngest learners to move on to a subsequent stage. As a result, expectations that may arguably have been reasonable for 5-and 6-year-olds, such as bemg able to sit at a desk and using pencil and paper，are now directed at even younger children, who lack the motor skills and attention span to be successful． However，parents of preschoolers tend to be on board with these cha nges，because they fear that the old—fashioned pleasures of unhurried learning have no place in today’s highly competitive world．The stress is obvious：Pick the “wrong” preschool and your child might not go to college．She might not be employable. She might not even be allowed to start first grade! As preschoolers are learning so much academic knowledge at earlier ages，they seem somehow less curious and less engaged．Some teachers say that more children today seem to lack the language skills ． The real focus in the preschool years should not be just on vocabularv and reading， but on talking and listening． By talking with adults, and one another， they pick up information，learn how things work and solve puzzles that trouble them．For our littlest learners，what could be more important than that? 25．Which of the statements does the author proba bly agree with? A．Younger children can fully understand the instructional things in classrooms． B．3-and 4-year-olds shouldn’t be expected too much in school readiness skills． C．More time should be spent on“seat work’’instead of music and art． D．Even 5-and 6-year-olds have good motor skills and attention span． 26．The underlined phrase “be on board with” in the third paragraph most probably means “ ”. A．accept B．reject C．doubt D．worry 27．Why are parents so picky when choosing a preschool for their kids? A．Because some preschools are too old fashioned． B．Because a wrong preschool might ruin kids’ future． C．Because the competitions between kindergartens are fierce． D．Because it is easy for them to choose a right preschool． 28．What’s the best title of the passage? A．New Preschool Breaking down the Kids． B．The Early Bird Gets the Worm． C．Preschool，the Gatekeeper to Elementary School? D．Seat work，a Better Choice for the Youngest Kids?
C I saw a dear friend a few days ago and stopped by to ask her how she was doing．She looked up，voice lowered，just complaining：“I'm so busy?have so much going on．’’ Almost immediately after，I ran into another friend and asked him how he was．Again， the same tone，the same response：“I'm just so busy?got so much to do．” Their responses knocked me down．How did we create a world in which we have more and more to do with less time for leisure，less time for reflection，less time for community? When did we forget that we are human beings，not human doings? What happened to a world in which we can sit with the people we love so much and have slow conversations with meaningful pauses and silences that we are in no rush to fill? This disease of being “busy” is spiritually destructive to our health and well-being．It weakens our ability to be fully present with those we love the most in our families, and keeps us from forming the kind of community that we all so desperately tong for． I don’t have any magical solutions．All I know is that we are losing the ability to live a truly human life．I am always a prisoner of hope, but I wonder if we are willing to make a change to our so-called busyness of life．Somehow we need a different model of organizing our lives，our societies，and our families． I want us to have a kind of existence where we can pause，look each other in the eye， touch one another，and ask ourselves：Here is how my heart is doing，I am taking the time to reflect on my own existence，and I know how to express the state of my heart． 29．What’s the result of the busy lifestyle? A．People will become forgetful in their everyday life． B．People are beginning to find some time for leisure． C．People may lose the ability of enjoying their life． D．People will further understand the importance of community． 30．How can we live a relaxed and balanced life according to the author? A．By seeking help from local families． B．By improving our working ability． C．By reconstructing the model of our lives． D．By creating a smarter open community． 31．Calling himself a prisone r of hope，the author means that . A．he thinks people won’t change B．he actually has magical solutions C．it is harmful to have many hopes D．he is always optimistic about life 32．What is the purpose of the author writing the article? A．To express concerns about people’s complaints． B．To criticize and reflect on the people’s present lifestyle． C．To voice his opinions on how to live a simple life． D．To question whether it is possible to live a slow life． D
Anybody who’s noticed so many sweaty Sunday-morning ph otos on the Internet must think that marathons have recently regained popularity．According to Running USA，an organization that tracks the sport’s growth，52 percent of runners today track themselves with some sort of GPS-enabled device， like a smartphone or a fitness tracker． This statistic has likely played a role in running’s growing appeal--the easily available tracking information has attracted people to the sport，and kept them going，for it’s possible for anyone to see in real time how it’s affecting their bodias. Today，free smartphone apps can give runners information on things like the number and length of their steps，their heart rate，even the estimated volume of oxygen they consume per minute．All this information can act as a reward and a motivator for the runner．“It’s one thing to hear encouragement from a coach．”Bryan Boyle，editor of Runner’s World magazine， explains． “It’s quite another， however， to appreciate-at a glance-progress made during weeks and mont hs of running．’’ But run—tracking technology doesn’t just help runners train harder. It also gives them the power to train more intelligently．Recreational runners today no longer have to guess how far or how fast they’ve run，or what their body is doing．If they can monitor their heart rate，they can make sure they’re hitting the most strategic pace on each run， which can significantly increase their chances of having a positive experience on the course during race day． No matter how much technology can promote the experience of running， though， many runn ers argue that the biggest benefit of the sport remains the chance to get outdoors，away from the computer，for an hour．“There’s so much more to experience，” adds Boyle．“fresh air，travel，shoot，just overall feeling better．There’s no app for that．” 33．We can infer from the first paragraph that ． A．people enjoy posting sports pictures on the Internet B．Running USA plays a key role in the growth of running C．tracking technology is drawing more people on the road D．run—tracking devices help people run faster than before 34．Which of the following questions are the second and third paragraphs intended to answer? A．What information can run—tracking devices provide for the runners? B．How is the run—tracking technology popularizing running? C．In what way is run—tracking technology developed? D．Why do people have to rely on wearable devices in modern society? 35．As for the experienced runners，what attracts them most is ． A．the exciting experience technology brings them B．a chance to enjoy nature outdoors C．becoming popular on social media D．being cool with a new wearable device on the road 第二节 (共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 l0 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，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 选项中有两项为多余选项。 You know that you have everything to be thankful for：a loving family，a pretty good job，and a healthy working body．Still，you keep feeling that what you have just isn’t enough．Sure，you can be happier by making some life changes． 36 It will make you more
