Nearly a week passed before the girl was able to explain what had happened to her. One afternoon she set out from the coast in a small boat and was caught in a storm. Towards evening, the boat struck a rock and the girl jumped into the sea. Then she swam to the shore after spending the whole night in the water. During that time she covered a distance of eight miles. Early next morning, she saw a light ahead. She knew she was near the shore because the light was high up on the cliffs. On arriving at the shore, the girl struggled up the cliff towards the light she had seen. That was all she remembered. When she woke up a day later, she found herself in hospital.

Yesterday afternoon Frank Hawkins was telling me about his experiences as a young man. Before he retired, Frank was the head of a very large business pany, but as a boy he used to work in a small shop. It was his job to repair bicycles and at that time he used to work fourteen hours a day. He saved money for years and in 1958 he bought a small workshop of his own. In his twenties Frank used to make spare parts for aeroplanes. At that time he had two helpers. In a few years the small workshop had bee a large factory which employed seven hundred and twenty-eight people. Frank smiled when he remembered his hard early years and the long road to success. He was still smiling when the door opened and his wife came in. She wanted him to repair their grandson's bicycle!

The expensive shops in a famous arcade near Piccadilly were just opening. At this time of the morning, the arcade was almost empty. Mr Taylor, the owner of a jewellery shop was admiring a new window display. Two of his assistants had been working busily since 8 o'clock and had only just finished. Diamond necklaces and rings had been beautifully arranged on a background of black velvet. After gazing at the display for several minutes, Mr Taylor went back into his shop.

The silence was suddenly broken when a large car, with its headlights on and its horn blaring, roared down the arcade. It came to a stop outside the jeweler's. One man stayed at the wheel while two others with black stockings over their faces jumped out and smashed the window of the shop with iron bars. While this was going on, Mr Taylor was upstairs. He and his staff began throwing furniture out of the window. Chairs and tables went flying into the arcade. One of the thieves was struck by a heavy statue, but he was too busy helping himself to diamonds to notice any pain. The raid was all over in three minutes, for the men scrambled back into the car and it moved off at a fantastic speed. Just as it was leaving, Mr Taylor rushed out and ran after it throwing ashtrays and vases, but it was impossible to stop the thieves. They had got away with thousands of pounds worth of diamonds.

皮卡迪利大街附近的一条著名拱廊街道上,几家高档商店刚刚开始营业。在早晨的这个时候,拱廊街上几乎空无一人。珠宝店主泰勒先生正在欣赏新布置的橱窗。他手下两名店员从早上8点就开始忙碌,这时刚刚布置完毕。钻石项链、戒指漂亮地陈列在黑色丝绒上头。泰勒先生站在橱窗外凝神欣赏了几分钟就回到了店里。

宁静突然被打破,一辆大轿车亮着前灯,响着喇叭,呼啸着冲进了拱廊街,在珠宝店门口停了下来。一人留在驾驶座上,另外两个用黑色长筒丝袜蒙面的人跳下车来。他们用铁棒把商店橱窗的玻璃砸碎。这开始发生时,泰勒先生正在楼上。他与店员动手向窗外投掷家具,椅子,桌子飞落花流水在拱廊街上。一个窃贼被一尊很重的雕像击中,但由于他忙着抢钻石首饰,竟连疼痛都顾不上了。这场抢劫只持续了3分钟,因为窃贼争先恐后地爬上轿车,以惊人的速度开跑了。就在轿车离开的时候,泰勒先生从店里冲了出来,跟在车后追赶,一边还往车上扔烟灰缸、花瓶。但他已无法抓住那些窃贼了。他们已带着价值数千镑的首饰逃之夭夭了。

Television has e into our lives for many years. We can nearly say that we can’t live happily without television. It can give us the latest information and news. It can open up our eyes and enlarge our knowledge. We can be entertained by the programs on television. Otherwise,we’ll be boring all day if there is no television. Television programs are attractive. After a whole day’s hard work, we can sit before the television enjoying ourselves. How wonderful it is!

However, television also does harm to people’s health. It’s bad for us to watch TV too long, especially bad for our eyes. Besides, watching TV may take the time to study or play on outside world. In short, television is good and we should make use of it appropriately.

然而,电视也会对人们的健康有害。长时光看电视对我们是不好的,异常是有损眼睛。此外,看电视可能会占据大部分学习或者出去玩的时光。总之,电视是好的,我们应当适当利用它。

英语阅读(五):

I think smiling is as important as sunshine. Smiling is like sunshine because it can make people happy and have a good day. If you aren’t happy, you can smile, and then you will feel happy. Someone may say, “But I don’t feel happy.” Then I would say, “Please smile as you do when you are happy or play with your friends happily. You will really be happy again.”

Smiling can let you have more friends.So I say, smiling is like a flower. It will give you happiness.

微笑可能让您有更多朋友。如此我说,微笑是象花。 它将给您快乐。

英语阅读(七):

Lost time is never found again. This is something which I learned very clearly last semester. I spent so much time fooling around that my grades began to suffer. I finally realized that something had to be done. It was time for a change.

Now I have a new plan for using my time wisely. I have set my alarm clock ahead half an hour. This will give me a head start on the day. I have also decided to keep a log of what I do and when I do it. Looking back on what I’ve done will give me some ideas on how to reorganize my time.

英语阅读(八):

A self-important lion in the jungle tried to make his mastery clear to all.

He was so confident that he paid no attention to the smaller animals and went right up to a bear. He asked the bear, "Who is the king of the jungle?" The bear replied, "Of course you are."

Then the lion asked a tiger the same question. The tiger replied with some reluctance1, "Of course you are." And then he went to ask an elephant. But the elephant would not allow the lion to do so. He suddenly took hold of the lion with his long nose and bounced2 the lion against a tree, leaving him bleeding3 and badly shaken up.

When the lion finally got up, he blamed the elephant and said: "Even if you couldn't answer my question, it's not necessary for you to act so rough4."

热带丛林里的一个妄自菲薄的狮子试图使所有的动物都明白它的统治地位。

它十分自信,对较小的动物不屑一顾,而是直接去问一只黑熊:“谁是丛林里的大王呀?” 黑熊回答说:“当然是你呀。”

于是它又去问一个老虎同样的问题。老虎有点勉强地回答说:“当然是你呀!”然后他又去问一头大象。可是大象不买它的账,突然用它的长鼻子把狮子抓起来向一棵树扔过去,让它鲜血淋漓和浑身发抖。

狮子最终爬起来时,它责怪大象说:“即使你回答不了我的问题,也用不着这么粗鲁嘛。”

布莱恩抱着一只火鸡,十分苦恼,他说:“原谅我,神父,我有罪。我偷来这只火鸡给我家人吃。你能告慰我的罪吗”

"Certainly not," said the Priest. "As penance, you must return it to the one from whom you stole it."

“当然不行,”神父说。“你必须把它还回去,这样才能赎罪。”

"I tried," Brian sobbed, "but he refused. Oh, Father, what should I do?"

“我试过了。”布莱恩抽泣着,“可是他拒绝了。神父,我到底该怎样办呢?”

Last Friday afternoon they had a fight in class, and their teacher was very angry. He said to both of them, “Stay here after the lessons this afternoon, and write your names a thousand times.”

After the last lesson, all the other boys went home, but Lan and Fred stayed in the classroom with their teacher and begin writing their names. Then Fred began crying.

英语阅读(十一):

There are many students in middle school wear the glasses, and many of them were wearing the glasses since little. We have to protect our eyes, prevent them from the short-sightedness. We should keep a good sitting posture, never read the books too closely. We’d better have a short break every hour of reading, close eyes or look at the distance. We should do the eye exercises every day. In the evening, we also shouldn’t read while we are lying. And more important, we shouldn’t spend hour and hour starring at our cellphone. We all should protect our eyes.

有很多中学生都带着眼镜,其中很多人从很小就开始戴了。我们必须要保护我们的眼睛,预防眼睛近视。我们应当坚持良好的坐姿,看书的时候不要离太近。我们好每看一个小时的书能短暂休息一下,闭上眼睛或者看向远方。我们应当每一天都做眼保健操。晚上的时候,我们也不要边躺着边看书。更重要的是,我们不要连续花几个小时盯着手机看。我们都应当保护我们的眼睛。

英语阅读(十二):

It was sunny and very hot today. I got up early and helped my parents cook breakfast. Then I washed the dishes and cleaned the room. After a short rest I did my homework in the morning.

英语阅读(十三):

The first snow came. How beautiful it was, falling so silently all day long, all night long, on the mountains, on the meadows, on the roofs of the living, on the graves of the dead! All white save the river, that marked its course by a winding black line across the landscape; and the leafless trees, that against the leaden sky now revealed more fully the wonderful beauty and intricacies of their branches. What silence, too, came with the snow, and what seclusion! Every sound was muffled, every noise changed to something soft and musical. No more tramping hoofs, no more rattling wheels! Only the chiming of the sleigh-bells, beating as swift and merrily as the hearts of children.

初雪降临,多么美啊!它整日整夜那么静静地飘着,落在山岭上,落在草地上,落在世人的屋顶上,落在逝者的坟墓上。在一片白茫茫之中,仅有河流在美丽的画面上划出一道弯弯曲曲的黑线;还有那叶儿落净的树木,映衬着铅灰色的天空,更显得枝丫交错,姿态万千。初雪飘落时,是何等的宁谧,何等的幽静!一切声响都趋沉寂,一切噪音都化作柔和的音乐。再也听不见马蹄得得,再也听不见车轮辚辚!唯有雪橇的铃铛,奏出和谐的乐声,那明快欢乐的节拍犹如小孩们心房的搏动。

英语阅读(十四):

Once upon a time, the animals living on the ground and those flying in the sky fought against each other. However, a bat could not take part on either side because he was timid and had no courage.When the beasts seemed like winning, the bat went to them and said, "I would like to fight with you." They believed him.

Yet, the bat began to worry, as the birds started to move ahead. So, the bat went to them and begged, "I am on your side because I am winged, too."

They pleasantly accepted the bat. "Sure. Since you have wings, you are on our side." The fight between the birds and the beasts continued and the bat went back and forth to the winning side.

Then one day, peace was made in the woods. The birds and the beasts learned that the bat went hither and thither between them. All the animals determined to expel him. Turned away from both sides, the bat started to live in a dark cave.

从前,地上的动物和天上的动物经常打架。然而,蝙蝠无法参加任何一方的队伍,因为他很胆小,缺乏勇气。当野兽快要胜利的时候,蝙蝠赶过去说:“我要跟你并肩战斗。”他们相信了蝙蝠。

然而,鸟儿们占上风的时候,蝙蝠又开始担心。于是,蝙蝠转而投靠他们恳求道:“我是你们这边,你们看我也有翅膀。”

他们愉快地理解了蝙蝠。“当然。既然你有翅膀,你就是我们的战友。”鸟儿与野兽的打斗仍然没有停止,蝙蝠来来回回地投靠每次胜利的一方。

一天,树林里最终迎来了和平。鸟和野兽得知蝙蝠在他们中间来回地欺骗。所有的动物都同意驱逐他。两方的队伍都不欢迎他,于是,蝙蝠开始在黑暗的洞穴里生活。

after some time they came out. when they came out, the country mouse said, "i do not like living in the city. i like living in my hole in the field. for it is nicer to be poor and happy, than to be rich and afraid."

翻译

从前,有两只老鼠,它们是好朋友。一只老鼠居住在乡村,另一只住在城里。很多年以后,乡下老鼠碰到城里老鼠,它说:“你必须要来我乡下的家看看。”于是,城里老鼠就去了。乡下老鼠领着它到了一块田地上它自我的家里。它把所有精美食物都找出来给城里老鼠。城里老鼠说:“这东西不好吃,你的家也不好,你为什么住在田野的地洞里呢?你应当搬到城里去住,你能住上用石头造的漂亮房子,还会吃上美味佳肴,你应当到我城里的家看看。”

乡下老鼠就到城里老鼠的家去。房子十分漂亮,好吃的东西也为他们摆好了。可是正当他们要开始吃的时候,听见很大的一阵响声,城里的老鼠叫喊起来:“快跑!快跑!猫来了!”他们飞快地跑开躲藏起来。

过了一会儿,他们出来了。当他们出来时,乡下老鼠说:“我不喜欢住在城里,我喜欢住在田野我的洞里。因为这样虽然贫穷可是欢乐自在,比起虽然富有却要过着提心吊胆的生活来说,要好些。”

英语阅读(二十):

home

What makes a home? Love and sympathy and confidence. It is a place where kindly affections exist among all the members of the family. The parents take good care of their children, and the children are interested in the activities of their parents. Thus all of them are bound together by affection, and they find their home to be the cheeriest place in the world.

组成家庭的因素是什么?答案即爱、同情和信赖。家是一个所有家庭成员凝结情感的地方。父母亲悉心照料小孩,而小孩们也对他们双亲的活动感兴趣。他们为爱所联结,因而发现家是世界上最令人感到欢乐的地方。

A home without love is no more a home than a body without a soul is a man. Every civilized person is a social being. No one should live alone. A man may lead a successful and prosperous life, but prosperity alone can by no means insure happiness. Many great personages in the world history had deep affections for their homes.

一个没有爱的家便不再称其为家,如同没有灵魂的躯体不再是人一样。每一个有修养的人都是社会性的人。没有人能够脱离社会独自生存。一个人也许过着成功而宽裕的生活,可是荣华富贵决不能保证快乐欢乐。在世界历,许多名人都对其家庭怀有深情厚意。

Your home may be poor and humble, but duty lies there. You should try to make it cheerful and fortable. The greater the difficulties, the richer will be your reward.

你的家也许贫穷而简陋,但那正是你的职责所在。你应当奋力使其愉快和舒适。你遭遇的困难越大,所得到的报偿也就越多。

A home is more than a family dwelling. It is a school in which people are trained for citizenship. A man will not render good services to his country if he can do nothing good for his home; for in proportion as he loves his home, will he love his country. The home is the birthplace of true patriotism. It is the secret of social welfare and national greatness. It is the basis and origin of civilization.

家不仅仅仅是一个供家人居住的地方。它还是一个培养人们成为公民的场所。一个人假如无法对家庭做出有意义的事情,也就无法为国家供给优良的服务,因为爱家和爱国是成正比的。家庭是爱国主义精神的真正发源地,是社会福利和国家昌盛的秘诀,是礼貌的基础和起源。

英语阅读(二十一):

时光一去不复返,这是我上学期清楚学到的教训。我浪费很多时光四处游荡,以致于我的成绩开始退步。最终我最终了解到我必须有所作为;该是痛改前非的时候了。

此刻我有一个明智运用时光的新方法。我已将闹钟早拨半小时,这将使我这一天的作息提前开始。我也决定将我所做的一切及做这些事的时光记录下来。回顾我所做的事情会启发我如何重新安排我的时光。

英语阅读(二十二):

What would you do if you failed?Many people may choose to give up. However,the surest way to success is to keep your direction and stick to your goal.

On your way to success,you must keep your direction. It is just like a lamp,guiding you in darkness and helping you overe obstacles on your way. Otherwise,you will easily get lost or hesitate to go ahead.

Direction means objectives. You can get nowhere without an objective in life.

You can try to write your objective on paper and make some plans to achieve it. In this way,you will know how to arrange your time and to spend your time properly. And you should also have a belief that you are sure to succeed as long as you keep your direction all the time.

如果失败了你会怎样做?很多人可能会选择放下。然而,要想成功,最可靠的方法就是坚持你的方向和目标。

在通往成功的路上,你必须坚持你的方向。它就像一盏灯,在黑暗中为你指路,帮忙你度过难关。否则,你很容易就会迷失方向或犹豫不前。

方向意味着目标。人生如果没有目标,将一事无成。

你能够试着把你的目标写在纸上,并制定实现目标的计划。这样,你就会懂得如何合理安排时光,如何正确地支配时光。并且你还要有这样的信念:只要你一向坚持自我的方向,你就必须能够成功。

英语阅读(二十三):

Today is a beautiful day. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. I decided to take a walk in the park to enjoy the lovely weather. As I strolled along the path, I noticed the colorful flowers in bloom and the lush greenery surrounding me. It was such a peaceful and serene atmosphere. I stopped by a pond and watched the ducks swimming around. It was a relaxing moment, just taking in the natural beauty of the park. After my walk, I sat down on a bench and read a book while enjoying the warmth of the sun. What a perfect way to spend a day!

翻译:

今日是美丽的一天。阳光明媚,鸟儿在歌唱。我决定在公园里散散步,享受这完美的天气。当我沿着小路漫步时,我注意到五颜六色的花朵正在盛开,周围郁郁葱葱的绿色植物环绕着我。我在一个池塘边停下来,看着鸭子游来游去。这是一个放松的时刻,只是在欣赏公园的天然美景。散步后,我坐在长椅上看书,一边享受阳光的温暖。多么完美的度过一天的方式!

英语阅读(二十四):

Courage

勇气

The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment; but it is no less amagnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy. A man does what he must in spite ofpersonal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures and thatis the basis of all human morality.

生活之中的勇气,通常不会像千钧一发时的勇气那样充满戏剧性;但他人不失为是一个胜利与杯具的壮观组合。一个人将个人得失,障碍、危险还有压力抛在脑后,只是做他必须做的,而这便是人类一切道德的基础。

To be courageous…requires no exceptional qualifications, no magic formula, no special bination of time, place andcircumstance. It is an opportunity that sooner or later is presented to us all.Politics merely furnishes one arena which imposes special tests of courage. In whatever arena of life, one may meet the challenge of courage, whatever may bethe sacrifices he faces if he follows his conscience, the loss of his friends,his fortune, his contentment, even the esteem of his fellow men, each man must decidefor himself the course he will follow. The stories of past courage can definethat ingredient, they can teach, they can offer hope, they can provideinspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must lookinto his own soul.

勇敢,不需要突出的品质,不需要秘诀,不需要天时地利,每个人或早或晚都有机会。政治可是是对勇气进行异常考验的一个竞技场而已,在人生的每一个竞技场上勇气都会前来挑战。如果你跟随你的良心,那么任何东西都可能被牺牲:朋友,财产,满足,甚至是别人对你的尊重。走哪条路只能由自我来决定。前人的故事能够告诉你什么叫勇敢。他们能够教你,能够给你期望和灵感,但不能给你真正的勇气,要得到它你必须要发掘自我的灵魂。

The Selfish Giant

自私的巨人

Every afternoon, as they were ing from school, the children used to go and play in the Giant's garden.

每一天午时,小孩们放学回来,总会去巨人的花园里玩耍。

It was a large lovely garden, with soft green grass. Here and there over the grass stood beautiful flowers like stars, and there were twelve peach-trees that in the spring-time broke out into delicate blossoms of pink and pearl, and in the autumn bore rich fruit. The birds sat on the trees and sang so sweetly that the children used to stop their games in order to listen to them. "How happy we are here!" they cried to each other.

这是一个可爱的大花园,长满了柔嫩的青草。草丛间到处盛开着美丽的鲜花,如繁星点点。花园里还有十二棵桃树,每到春天,粉红色和珍珠色的花朵姣美诱人,到了秋天树上果实累累。鸟儿栖息在枝头动听地唱着,小孩们都禁不住停止游戏,细心聆听。“我们在这儿多么欢乐!”他们互相欢叫。

One day the Giant came back. 1-1e had been to visit his friend the Cornish ogre, and had stayed with him for seven years. After the seven years were over he had said all that he had to say, for his conversation was limited, and he determined to return to his own castle.When he arrived he saw the children playing in the garden.

有一天巨人回来了。他去拜访康沃尔的怪物朋友,和他一齐住了七年。七年结束了,巨人说完了想说的话,因为他的话总有个尽头,他决定回到自我的城堡。当他到家的时候,看见小孩们正在花园里玩耍。

"What are you doing here?" he cried in a very gruff voice, and the children ran away.

“你们在这儿做什么!”他十分粗暴地喊道,小孩们跑开了。

"My own garden is my own garden," said the Giant; "any one can understand that, and I will allow nobody to play in it but myself." So he built a high wall all round it, and put up a notice-board.

“我自我的花园就是我自我的,”巨人说道,“随便什么人都明白。除了我以外,我不允许任何人在花园里玩。”于是他在花园的四周砌起了高高的围墙,支起一块告示牌。

Soldiers

Soldiers and other military people wear uniforms with various other symbols to indicate their status.But in the business world everyone wears more or less similar suits,and you cannot tell at a glance who ranks higher or lower than another.So how do people in the business world show their superiority? An attempt to study this was made by two researchers using a series of silent films.They had two actors play the parts of an executive(经理)and a visitor,and switch roles each time.The scene had one man at his desk playing the part of an executive,while the other,playing the part of a visitor,knocks at the door,opens it and approaches the desk to discuss some business matter.

The audience watching the films was asked to rate the executive and the visitor in terms of status.A certain set of rules about status began to emerge from the ratings.The visitor showed the least amount of status when he stopped just inside the door to talk across the room to the seated man.He was considered to have more status when he walked halfway up to the desk,and he had the most status when he walked directly up to the desk and stood right in front Of the seated executive.

Another thing that affected the status of the visitor in the eyes of the observers was the time between knocking and entering.For the seated executive,his status was also affected by the time between hearing the knock and answering.The quicker the visitor entered the room,the more status he had.The longer the executive took to answer,the more status he had.

41.The experiment designed by the two researchers aimed at finding out _____

A.how business is conducted by all executive and a visitor

B how to tell the differences between an executive and a visitor

C.how to tell businessmen at a glance

D.how businessmen indicate status

42 Which of the statements can best sum up the passage?

A.The executive has a higher status than the visitor.

B.Military people wear uniforms but the businessmen do not

C,A study revealing a set of rules about the status of businessmen.

D It is a good method to use a series of silent film in research.

43 Having entered the room,the closer the visitor approaches the executive, ___

A.the less it affected his status

B.the lower his status

C.the more it affected his status

D.the higher his status

44.The longer the seated man was in answering the knock,_____

A.the higher his status

B.the less it affected his status

C.the lower his status

D the more it affected his status

45.Which statement is NOT true?

A Soldiers wear uniforms with various symbols so that one call tell their status at a glance.

B.In the experiment.one actor played the executive while the other played the seated man

答案:DCDAB

士兵和其他军队中的人都要穿制 服,并且衣服上有各种各样的标志来证明他们的身份地位。可是在商业的世界中,几乎每个人都穿的差不多一样的衣服。乍看之下,很难分出身份地位的高低。那么,在商界,人们如果证明自我高人一等呢?

2个研究者经过一系列的默剧对此进行尝试和研究。剧中仅有2个演员,分饰经理和拜访者的主角,每次两人都要交换主角。剧中演的是经理坐在办公桌旁边办公,来访者敲门,推开门,往办公桌走去,和经理讨论业务上的事情。

观看的观众被要求说出经理和拜访者的地位孰高孰低。从观众的意见总结出一套地位的归路。当拜访者站在刚进门的地方,远远的穿过整个房间和经理说话,证明来访者的地位低。当拜访者站在门和桌子的中间时,地位较高;当他径直走到桌子旁边站在经理前面时,地位高。

在观众眼中,另一个影响拜访者地位的事情是他敲门和进房间之间的时光间隔。对于坐在那里的经理来说,他的地位受听到敲门和应答的时光间隔的影响。拜访者越早的进入房间,他的地位就越高。

经理越迟应答敲门声,他的地位越高。

"We are reading the first verse of the first chapter of a book whose pages are infinite---"

I do not know who wrote those words, but I have always liked them as a reminder that the future can be anything we want to make it. We can take the mysterious, hazy future and carve out of it anything that we can imagine, just like a sculptor carves a statue from a shapeless stone.

We are all in the position of the farmer. If we plant a good seed, we reap a good harvest. If our seed is poor and full of weeds, we reap a useless crop. If we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all.

I want the future to be better than the past. I don't want it contaminated by the mistakes and errors with which history is filled. We should all be concerned about the future because that is where we will spend the reminder of our lives.

The past is gone and static. Nothing we can do will change it. The future is before us and dynamic. Everything we do will effect it. Each day will brings with it new frontiers, in our homes and in our businesses, if we will only recognize them. We are just at the beginning of the progress in every field of human endeavor.

“我们正在阅读一本页数无限的书的第一章的第一节……”

我不明白这段文字是谁写的,我一向很喜欢并用它们来提醒自我,那就是未来操之在我。我们能够掌握神秘而不可知的未来,从中创出我们所能想象的任何东西,一如雕刻家能够将未成型的石头刻出雕像一样。

我们每个人都是农夫。我们若种下好种子,就会有丰收。倘若种子长得不良且长满杂草,我们就会徒劳无获。如果我们什么也不种,就根本不会有什么收获。

我期望未来会比过去更好。我不期望未来会被那些充斥在历史中的错误所污染。我们应关心未来,因为往后的余生都要在未来中度过。

往昔已一去不复返并且是静止的。任凭我们怎样奋力都不能改变过去。未来就在我们眼前并且是动态的。 我们的所作所为都会影响未来。只要我们体会的出来,每一天都能够发现新的知识领域伴随而生,可能是在家里,也可能是在我们的事业中。我们正处在人类所奋力钻研的每个领域中提高的起点。

profession

Acting is such an over-crowded profession that the only advice that should be given to a young person thinking of going on the stage is“Don't!”.But it is useless to try to discourage someone who feels that he must act,although the chances of his being famous are slim. The normal way to begin is to go to a drama sch001. Usually only students who show promise and talent are accepted,and the course lasts two years.Then the young actor or actress takes up work with a theatrical pany(剧团),usually as an assistant stage manager This means doing everything that there is to do in the theatre and occasionally acting in very small parts It is very hard work indeed,the hours are long and the salary is tiny.

Of course,some people have remarkable chances which lead to fame and Success without this long and hard training.Connie Pratt,for example,was just an ordinary girl working in a bicycle factory.A film producer happened to catch sight of her one morning waiting at a bus stop,as he drove past in his car.He stopped and got out to speak to the girl.He asked if she would like to go to the film studio to do a test,and she thought he was joking Then she got angry and said she would call the police It took the producer twenty minutes to convince Connie that he was serious The test was successful.And within a few weeks she was playing the leading part opposite one of the most famous actors of the day But chances like this happen once in a blue moon

36 From the very beginning,the author puts it clearly that acting is a profession __A____

A sought after by too many

B.too difficult for young people

C.for slim people only

D.one can go into without special training

37.For someone who feels he must act,it is very likely that _D____

A.he will bee a film star at long last

38.The film producer found Connie Pratt one morning when she was __D__

C.going to a film studio

D.waiting for a bus

39.A few weeks after the test.Connie Pratt found herself __B____

40 The concluding sentence “chances like this happen once in a blue moon” means D

A this is something which happens once in a while

B.this is a highly profitable chance

C.this is something highly possible

D this is a very rare chance

答案:ADDBD

演艺界是一个人口密度过高的职业。对于想登上舞台的年轻人的提议就是不要进入。可是想劝阻那些明知成功的机会很渺茫却执意要做演员的人,这种说教是无用的。要做演员通常办法就是去戏剧学院进修。通常那里只理解有前途和有天赋的学生,课程要花2年的时光。之后,年轻的女艺人或者男艺人以舞台助理的身份,参与到剧团的工作。这意味着要做和舞台相关的所有事务和偶尔的跑龙套。这确实是很辛苦的工作,工作时光长,薪水又少的可怜。

当然,有些人没有经过长期辛苦训练,而是是经过不寻常的机会就获得了声望和成功。例如说,Connie Pratt原本是自行车厂的一个普通女工。某个早晨她在公车站等车的时候被一个开车走过的电影制作人看中了。制作人停车出来和她交谈,问她是否愿意来摄影棚试镜。Connie认为他只是在开玩笑罢了。后她生气了,还威胁说要叫警察。后制作人花了20分钟的时光让Connie相信他是认真的。试镜很成功。几个星期之后,她就作为女主角和当时很有名的一个男演员在一部戏中演对手戏了。可是,类似这样的机会少之又少啊。

高中英语阅读理解:Nobel Peace Prize

Most of us know about the Nobel Prize, especially the Nobel Peace Prize, but few of us know anything about the man who set them up. His name was Alfred Nobel. He was a great scientist and inventor himself. Besides, he had a big business. His business may surprise you. He made and sold explosives. His panies even made and sold weapons. Isn’t this something that surprises you? The man who made money from weapons should set up the Peace Prize?

Though Alfred Nobel had a lot of money from weapons, he hated war. He hoped that there would be no war in the world. He was one of the richest in Europe. When he died in 1896, he left behind him a lot of money and his famous will. According to his will, most of his money was placed in a fund. He wanted the interest from the fund to be used as prizes every year. We know them as the Nobel Prizes. The Nobel Prizes are international. Alfred Nobel wanted the winners to be chosen for their work, not the country they came from.

Alfred Nobel had given his whole life to his studies and work and to the benefits of mankind. He made money all by his own efforts, but he left the world share his wealth. His inventions and wealth stay with the world for ever.

Teresa,mommys gone. Shes dead. I couldn't believe it. We jumped into the car and drove straight to the hospital. Most of my family were there. The silence was terrible. I knew I had to say goodbye.

Today when I look back,I still miss my mother very much,but I know that I will live. My mother was a strong mother,who had the biggest heart. My mother was an angel walking on the earth. I will always remember her as living. When someone is asked who their hero (英雄) is,they usually say someone famous,like Michael Jordan or Britney Spears.

高中英语阅读理解:Travel

Most people usually traveled by ship and train which are driven by steam engine. It played an important part in many kinds of vehicles several scores of years ago. Who invented steam engine and what units could be used to measure the power of engine?

The word “horse-power” was first used two hundred years ago. James Watt from a worker?s family made the world first widely used steam engine. At first, he couldn't tell people how powerful it was, because there were no units at that time. Watt decided to find out how much work one strong horse could do in one minute. He named that unit one horse-power. In this way he could measure the work of his steam engine.

He discovered that a horse could lift a 3300-pound weight 10 feet into the air in one minute. His engine could lift a 3300-pound weight 100 feet in one minute. Because his engine did ten times as much work as the horse, Watt called it a ten horse-power engine.
