People like artists and writers usually work on their own, with no one else around.
Most of my friends all work 26 other people in shops and so on, and they tell me
that they would never get things done if they worked alone. I'm not 27 that all
artists and writers do, either.
I was born in a small village in the country where everyone knew 28 else: that is,
they knew everyone except a writer who 29 himself to himself. By the time I was 30
enough to learn people's names, he had been living in the village for at least twenty years,
but the villagers still regarded him as a 31 ! Every morning he would walk down to the
local shops to do his 32 , and although he had to greet everyone he met, only two or
three would 33 his greeting. Just occasionally, someone would ask him 34 he was doing,
and every time his answer would be the same: "I'm still writing the book." And that was all
we 35 learned about him.
Because no one had ever visited his house, I 36 once walking up to the house with three
or four other boys to see 37 we could see what he did. We climbed up to the 38 and
looked in, expecting to see our writer typing 39 at his desk. Instead, he was sitting in an armchair 40 a book.

"Ordinary" was the worst word my mother could find for anything. I remember her taking me
shopping and taking no notice of the shop assistants when they suggested that some dress
or pair of shoes was very popular -"we've sold fifty already this week". That was all she
needed to hear. "No", she would say, "we're not interested in that. Haven't you got something
a little more unusual?" And then the assistant would bring out all the strange colours no one
else would buy. And later she and I would argue because I wanted to be ordinary but my mother
wanted to be unusual.
"I can't stand that hairdo(发型)."she said, when I went to the hairdresser with my friend and
came back with a boy haircut, "It's so terribly ordinary." Not ugly, not unsuitable. But ordinary...
"Couldn't you please wear something else?" I asked one day when she was dressing for Parents' Day
in tight-fitting bullfighter's pants and a bright pink sweater.
"What's wrong with what I'm wearing?"
What wasn't wrong with it!
"It's just that I wish you'd wear something ordinary," I said , "something that people won't laugh at."
She looked at me angrily and then said ,"Are you ashamed of your own mother? If you are, Isadora, I feel sorry for you. I really do."

A. Something very popular. B. Styles they had sold out of.
C. Clothes that were cheap. D. The most unusual clothes.

A. felt happy with it B. surely disliked it
C. told her to change it D. thought it was childish

A. Because her mother's clothes were out of style.

No one wants to look silly or do the wrong thing at a new job. It is important to make the right
impression(印象) from the very first day. You will face new people. You will be in a new place.
It may be difficult to know what to do. Here are five tips to help you make it through the first
days at a new job:
1.First impressions can last forever. Make sure you make a good one. Before your first day, find
out if your new job has a dress code (rules about what you can wear to work). If so, be sure to
follow it. No matter what, always be neat and clean.
2.Get to work on time. Give yourself an extra 15 minutes to make sure you arrive on time.
3.Pay attention to introductions. One of the first things that your supervisor may do is to introduce
you to co-workers. These co-workers will be important to you. They are the ones who will answer your
questions when the boss is not around.
4.Ask plenty of questions. Make sure that your supervisor has told you what is expected of you. If he
or she has not told you your duties, ask for a list. Set daily and weekly goals for yourself.

Do you know that you can use your watch as a compass on a sunny day? Take a
watch and point the hour-hand in the direction of the sun. Imagine a line which runs from
the center of the watch through a point half-way between the hour-hand and number one.
This line will surely point south.
If you know astronomy a little, you will understand why this works. In
the northern half of the earth, the sun is in the south at noon. In our
country the real noon is one o'clock. If at that time we point the hour-hand
at the sun, the hour-hand and number one will point south. That is why you
must imagine a line which will run from the center of the watch through a
point half-way between the hour-hand and number one. It will point south. If you are in the southern
part of our planet, you must point number 12 at the sun. The line which you can imagine between number
twelve and the hour-hand will then show north.
51. When we carry out this experiment in the northern part of the earth,
we should point _____________ at the sun.
A. number 12 B. the minute-hand
C. the hour-hand D. number one
52. What does the underlined word astronomy mean in the passage?
A. 天文学 B. 地理学 C. 宇航学 D. 逻辑学
53. The passage tells us that we can use a watch ____________on a sunny day.
A. as a time-keeper B. to show direction
C. to enjoy ourselves D. to keep good time
54. If you are in Australia, which of the following is the right way to
A. B. C. D.
55. What's the best title for this passage?
A. Your Watch Becomes a Compass B. An Interesting Watch
C. The Story of a Watch D. The Sun and a Watch

that country air is 56 than the air in smoky 57 . The villager is 58

I knew little about English when I first came to America. So I went to a language school
every day except Sunday to learn English. One day,
during the break I asked Alice, one of my classmates a question that I didn't understand.
When I thanked her for it, she said: "You are welcome.
It's a piece of cake." I thought to myself: America is really a country for money in which
everything is done for pay. So I said to her: "I haven't
taken any piece of cake with me today, what about something else?
She looked at me with a big smile, saying: "What I mean is, 'no problem',
and that it is only a small matter." From then on, I came to learn that
"a piece of cake" is not only a piece of cake but also means a thing that is very easy.

八、One possible version:
Mr Smith, it is a notice to the audience. It says that we should enter
the concert hall 30 minutes earlier before the concert starts. Entrance
to the hall is by ticket only, each one each ticket. As a rule, food
or drink should not be taken into the hall. Of course, smoking is not
allowed in the hall, too. Please don't bring your digital camera with
you because no photos can be taken during the concert. And what is
more, beepers and mobile phones must be kept off during the concert.
