If you travel to other countries, do you know what to say to start a small 51 with local people? In Britain, the best topic is the weather. Britain 52 changes quite often. It’s also a safe topic. You can start a small talk simply by 53 “It’s a lovely day today, isn’t it?” Besides the weather, it’s good to talk about gardens with English people. For example, 54 could say, “Those roses look really beautiful, don't they?” English people love their pets. So it’s also nice to begin with “What a lovely 55 ! What is its name?” In America, people like to 56 sports, such as American football and basketball. They also talk about clothes by saying “ It’s a nice shirt! Where did you get it?” The clothes are a 57 topic there, too. Of course, there are also a lot of topics to avoid during a small talk in Western countries. Don't ask people “How old are you?” Age is usually 58 , especially for women. 59 ask “ How much money do you make? ” It makes people uncomfortable.

第一节 选择 (本节共 15 小题;每小题 1 分,共 15 分) 阅读下面短文,从各题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中,选出可填入空白处的最佳选项。 A My name is Jack. When my family moved to America, we brought not only our luggage, but also our rules, customs and culture in China. One of the rules is that young people should always respect the elders. Unluckily, this rule led to my very first embarrassment(尴尬) in the United States. I had a part-time job as a waiter in a Chinese restaurant. One day, when I was serving food to a middle-aged couple, the wife asked me how the food could be served so quickly. I told her that I had made sure they got their food quickly because I always respect the elderly. As soon as I said that, she looked very unhappy. My manager gave me a long lecture about how Americans dislike the word “old”. I then walked back and apologized to the lady. In my hometown in China, people are proud of being old. Not so many people live to be seventy or eighty, and people who reach such an age have the most knowledge and experience. Young people always respect older people because they know they can learn from their rich experience. However, in the United States, “old” means that a person is going to retire(退休). Here many people try to keep themselves from growing old by doing exercises. When I told the couple in the restaurant that I respect the elderly, they got angry because this caused them to feel they had failed to stay young. After that, I changed the way I had been with older people. It is not that I don’t respect them any more; I still respect them, but now I don’t show my feelings through words. 61. Why did Jack serve the couple their food very fast? A. He wanted more pay. B. He respected the elderly. C. He was asked to do so. D. He was a hard-working waiter. 62. What do we know about Jack’s hometown from the passage? A. People there are proud of being old. B. People there dislike being called “old”. C. No people there reach the age of seventy or eighty. D. Young people there show little respect to the older. 63. What did Jack do after this experience? A. He made friends with the couple. B. He lost his job in the restaurant. C. He no longer respected the elderly. D. He changed his way with older people. 64. We can know from the passage that __________. A. the couple disliked fast service at all. B. the manager apologized to the couple. C. Jack wanted to show his feelings through words. D. Jack knew more about American culture than before. 65. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. Differences between the Old and the Young. B. Different Countries, Different Customs. C. Different Restaurants, Different Service D. Old people, Old Customs.

Listen to American jazz C. go to Shandong Museum D. stay at Sun Hotel for one night C Museums are one of the greatest resources of mankind. When one walks around most cities, small or large, one is sure to find a museum. Early museums were churches.

During the 1400’s and 1500’s European explorers traveled to North and South America, and eastern Asia, and brought back samples of animal and plant life. They also managed to bring back objects made by the local people. Many people began collecting the items that the explorers brought back. They would place these collections in rooms called galleries ( 陈列馆 ). In 1683 at Oxford University in England, the first public museum, Ashmolean, opened. It had a collection of rare and strange objection that had been collected by an English scholar. People traveled from miles around to view these objects and it was a great success. Since these early museums, many things have changed. Most museum are still places to show art and scientific discoveries, but there are many unusual ones that have been set up over the years. In the famous Madam Tussard’s museum, there are wax figures(蜡像) of variety of famous people in history and well-known members of society. There is even a museum all about the history of sex in New York City. Museums have been around for centuries and without doubt they will be here centuries to come. 71.

One important form of soil conservation is the use of windbreaks (防风林带), which stop the wind from blowing soil away. They also keep the wind from destroying crops. Windbreaks are formed by trees and other plants with many leaves. Farmers plant windbreaks in lines around their fields. Studies have shown that grain harvests can be 20% higher on fields protected by windbreaks compared to those without such protection. Windbreaks are effective when a wall of trees and other plants stops the wind. They should also limit strong motions ( 运动 ) of the wind to those areas closest to them. Windbreaks seem to work best when they allow a little wind to pass through. If the wall of trees and plants stops wind completely, then strong air motions will take place close to the ground, causing the dirt to fly into the air where it will be blown away. For this reason, a windbreak is best if it has only 60~80% of the trees and plants needed to make a solid (牢固的)line. There should be at least two lines in each windbreak. One line should be large trees. The second line can be formed from shorter trees and other plants with leaves. Windbreaks not only protect land and crops from the wind, but also provide wood products. 81. What is one important form of soil conversation mentioned in the passage? 82. How are windbreaks formed? 83. When do windbreaks seem to work best? 84. How many lines should there be in each windbreak? 85. What is the use of windbreaks apart from land and crops protection?
