      You probably don't know how to answer that question---unless you happen to be one
ofthe about 430 people in the world who speak a language called Matukar Panau. Then you
would know it means "What are we doing?" Matukar Panau is one of the world's rarest
languages. It is spoken in just two small coastal villages in Papua New Guinea.
   Several years ago, David Hamson, a language expert, didn't know much about
Matukar Panau either. No one had ever recorded or even studied its words and rules. With
so few speakers, the language risked disappearing soon. It was endangered.
       Hamson didn't want that to happen to Matukar Panau. So in 2009, he set out for Papua
New Guinea. His goal: use modern technology to help the remaining speakers preserve
their native tongue.
      But Matukar Panau is far from the only language facing loss. Studies suggest that by
the end of this century, nearly half of the 7,000 languages now spoken worldwide could
disappear. They're in danger partly because the only people left speaking them are elderly
adults. When those individuals die, their language will die with them. In addition, children
may discard a native language and instead use more common global languages, such as
Chinese, English or Spanish.
      In the United States alone, 134 native American languages are endangered. "language
hotspots" exist all over the world. These are places with endangered languages that haven't
been recorded. They include the state of Oklahoma, pockets of central and eastern Siberia,
parts of northern Australia and communities in South America.
24. What did Harrison go to PaPua New Guinea for?
      A. Learning their native language
       B. Helping preserve their endangered tongue
      C. Leaning their modern technology
       D. Teaching the natives a new language
25. The underline word "discard" in Paragraph 4 means             .
     A. hear of         B. pick up            C. get rid of       D. learn about
26. The last two paragraphs imply that endangered languages are _             .
     A. dying quickly in Siberia                B. becoming a worldwide problem
     C. popular in some special places        D. some native tongues
27. According to the passage, the author is _           about the endangered languages.
     A. indifferent       B. suspicious        C. supportive        D. concerned
                            C
     I told my friend Graham that I often cycle two miles from my house to the town centre
but unfortunately there is a big hill on the route. He replied, "You mean fortunately." He
explained that I should be glad of the extra exercise that the hill provided.
     My attitude to the hill has now changed. I used to complain as I approached it but now
I tell myself the following. This hill will exercise my heart and lungs. It will help me to lose
weight and get fit. It will mean that I live longer. This hill is my friend. Finally I comfort
myself with the thought of all those silly people who pay money to go to a gym and sit on
stationery exercise bicycles when I can get the same value for free. I have a smile of
satisfaction as I reach the top of the hill.
    Problems are there to be faced and overcome. We cannot achieve anything with an
easy life. Helen Keller was the first deaf and blind person to gain a university degree. Her
activism and writing proved inspirational. She wrote, "Character cannot be developed in
ease. Only through experiences of suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared,
ambition inspired and success achieved."
    One of the main determinants of success in life is our attitude towards adversity. From
time to time we all face hardships, problems, accidents and difficulties. Some are of our
making but many are no fault of our own. While we cannot choose the adversity, we can
choose our attitude towards it.
     Douglas Bader was 21 when in 1931 he had both legs cut off following a flying
accident.  He was determined to fly again and went on to become one of the leading flying
aviators in the Battle of Britain with 22 aerial victories over the Germans .  He was an
inspiration to others during the war. He said, "Don't listen to anyone who tells you that you
can't do this or that. That's nonsense. Make up your mind, you'll never use crutches or a
stick, and then have a go at everything. Go to school, and join in all the games you can. Go
anywhere you want to. But never, never let them persuade you that things are too difficult
or impossible."
    The biographies of great people are full of examples of how they took steps to
overcome the difficulties they faced. The common thread is that they did not become
depressed. They chose their attitude. They chose to be positive. They took on the challenge.
They won. Nevertheless, there is still the problem of how you change your attitude towards
adversity.
28. Which of the following is true according to the author of the passage?
    A. Those who want to achieve success can't expect to live an easy life.
    B. Climbing hills on bicycles is the best way to take exercise.
    C. Going to a gym is greatly beneficial to people's health.
    D. People's attitude to hardships is the only factor of their success.
29.  By quoting what Douglas Bader said, the author intends to tell us "                 ."
    A. Failure is the mother of success.
    B. A bad workman quarrels with his tools.
    C. Nothing is difficult to the man who will try.
    D. If you risk nothing, you will have nothing.
30. Following this passage, the author will further talk about               .        .
    A. how his friend helped him to change his attitude towards the challenge he faced
    B. why it is important to keep optimistic in face of trouble
     C. what steps to take to change your attitude towards the difficulty you face
     D. what great people have in common
31. Which of the following can best function as the title of the passage?
    A. Different attitudes towards misfortune              B. Face difficulties with a smile
       C. Nothing is impossible                      D. Life is full of adversity
                       D
   Adding math talk to story time at home is a winning factor for children's math
achievement, according to a new research from a university. The study from psychologists
Sian Beilock and Susan Levine shows a marked increase in math achievement among
children whose families used Bedtime Math, an iPad app that delivers engaging math story
problems for parents and children to solve together.
       Even children who used the app with their parents as little as once a week saw gains in
math achievement by the end of the school year. The app's effect was especially strong for
children whose parents tend to be anxious or uncomfortable with math.
        Previous research from this group has demonstrated the importance of adults' attitudes
about math for children's math success. For example, a recent study found that
math-anxious parents who help their children with math homework actually weaken their
children's math achievement.
    The new findings demonstrate that structured, positive interactions around math at
home can cut the link between parents' uneasiness about math and children's low math
achievement.
    "Many people experience high levels of anxiety when they have to solve a math
problem, with a majority of adults feeling at least some worries about math," said Beilock,
professor in Psychology and author of Choke, a book about stress and performance. "These
math-anxious parents are probably less likely to talk about math at home, which affects
how competent their children are in math. Bedtime Math encourages a dialogue between
parents and kids about math, and offers a way to engage in high-quality math interactions in
a low-effort, high-impact way."
     Study participants included 587 first-grade students and their parents. Families were
given an iPad installed with a version of the Bedtime Math app, with which parents and
their children read stories and answer questions involving math, including topics like
counting, shapes and problem-solving. A control group received a reading app that had
similar stories without the math content and questions related to reading comprehension
instead. Children's math achievement was assessed at the beginning and end of the school
year. Parents completed a questionnaire about their nervousness with math.
    The more times parents and children in the math group used the app, the higher
children's achievement on a math assessment at the end of the school year. Indeed, children
who frequently used the math app with their parents outperformed similar students in the
reading group by almost three months in math achievement at year's end.
32.   Bedtime Math is an iPad app that _  .
    A. requires parents and children to answer reading comprehension questions
    B. assesses children's math achievement and parents' nervousness with math
    C. encourages children together with their parents to solve math story problems
    D. teaches children how to count, recognize shapes and solve practical problems
33.  The previous study found that____.
    A. help from math-anxious parents improves children's math achievement
    B. interactions around math at home will cut off the family relationship
    C. children's math achievement is related to parents' attitude about math
    D. children can achieve more success if they see the importance of math
34.   We can infer from the passage that____.
    A. it is the math problems related to the stories that make the great difference
    B. children whose parents are uneasy about math are superior to other students
    C. Parents using the app for three months can see gains in math achievement
    D. the frequency of using the app has nothing to do with children's achievement
35. What does the author want to tell us?
    A. High-anxiety parents influence children's attitude about math.
    B. Frequent use of app can develop problem-solving ability.
    C. Low-effort activities create good parent-child relationship.
    D. High-quality math interactions improve children's performance.

school, but you probably think you will never be a top student.__36    .You can receive
better grades if you want to and even can be top students without additional work. Here's

参考范文
Dear Frank,
How happy we are to know that you’re going to participate in our Chinese Idiom Contest. Here is what you are supposed to know about.
We're going to hold the contest in the school library at 8:00 a.m. on December 20, 2016. Characters wrongly usedare to be recognized in some Chinese idioms. Besides, you are required to say out the idioms by guessing gestures of your partner. Hopefully, what I have to remind you of is that you’d better get one story of idiom prepared in case you are probably invited to tell one. By the way, all our Chinese teachers will be invited as judges. 
Expecting your excellence in the approaching contest. Best wishes!
Yours,
Li Pin

第一节
Text 1:
W: I’d like a table, please.
M: I’m sorry. You’ll have to wait for some time. You see there are too many people at lunch time.

Text 2:
M: Shelly, what’s the time by your watch? Mine is always fast. It’s already 3:00.
W: I’m afraid not so. Yours is five minutes slow.

Text 3:
W: Excuse me, sir?
M: Yes?
W: My child bought one kilogram of candies here this morning, but it didn’t weigh so much as it should be!
M: Oh, really? But have you weighed your kid?

Text 4:
W: Excuse me. Would you do me a favor to move a little to let me in? My bag is too big.
M: OK, no problem.
W: Thank you. Is it the one about the development of movies? I’m afraid I’ve come to a wrong place.
M: Yes, it is. It’s said that the lecturer is from Hollywood.

Text 5:
W: Hello. May I speak to Doctor Lee, please?
M: Sorry, he’s having a meeting. Would you like to leave him any message?
W: Yes, please. He asked me to give a lecture next week and I’d like to discuss some details with him.
M: OK. I’ll tell him about it after the meeting and you can call him again later.

听第6段材料,回答第6、7题。
W: Hey! What’s the rush?
M: The bank closes in half an hour and I need to cash a check.
W: I can lend you some money.
M: Actually, I need to cash a check because I’m going on a trip this weekend. The travel agency said I have to buy some traveler’s checks today.
W: Hmm. Can I help in some way?
M: You can drive me to the bank if you want to. My car’s out of gas.
W: Yeah. Glad to. Let’s go.







听第7段材料,回答第8、9题。
W: That rain is really coming down out there!
M: Yes, it’s kind of crazy weather outside.
W: I get kind of nervous flying in this kind of weather.
M: I don’t think anyone feels all that comfortable flying in a storm.
W: Do you think it will last the whole trip?
M: It will probably be with us for a while.
W: I still worry about the weather.
M: We have to believe that our pilot knows what he is doing and we’ll be OK.

听第8段材料,回答第10至12题。
M: Hi, Jean. You look worried. Is everything ok? 
W: Well, my new boss is expecting us to start work at 8 O’clock in the morning. But I have to take our children to school. That means I’ll be late for work. And you can’t spare any time to do it.
M: Oh, dear…er…but not a surprise. My friend Alice had a similar problem last year.
W: How did she settle it?
M: She didn’t do anything at first. But in the end she told it to her boss. He said he hadn’t realized the early start would present a problem and he agreed to let them start half an hour late.
W: That’s great. Perhaps I should deal with it the same way.

听第9段材料,回答第13至16题。
M: Er, Anna, tell me, how long have you been here in London?
W: I arrived ten days ago.
M: I understand you are taking an English course at this school.
W: Yes, that’s right.
M: When did the course start?
W: It started ... er, five days ago.
M: How long does it last?
W: It lasts a month, and there are three hours of classes every morning. In the afternoon there are trips to places of interest in London.
M: I see. Why did you decide to take this course?
W: For two reasons, really. You see, I work in the Sales Department of a computer company, and I often have to speak English to customers, so I wanted to improve my spoken English.
M: You speak very well.
W: Thank you.
M: And the second reason?
W: It was a good excuse to see London.
M: Is this the first time you’ve been here?
W: Yes.
M: And are you living with an English family here in London?
W: No, I’m living in a hotel, but I think it’s better to live with a family. There are five French people staying at the hotel, so we speak French together. I haven’t met many English people yet!



听第10段材料,回答第17至20题。
There is a holiday next week and I can’t decide what to do. I have a lot of work to do at home, and this would be a good chance to do it. But I’d rather not spend the holiday that way. I can work at home all the rest of the year. Last year, I went north to the mountains. Everything was beautiful, but it is too cold this time of year. And it’s really too far to go for a short holiday. I have decided that this is not a good time to go to the mountains. But I do want to go to some place. Perhaps this would be a good chance to go to the beach. I like to go for walks along the seashore in the warm sunshine and watch the water. It’s only about 80 miles and I could get there in about two hours. After thinking it over, I’m sure that this is a better time for the seashore than the mountains. I guess I’ll plan to go to the beach next week. Oh, here’s a letter from Jim. He says he is going to his house in the mountain for the holiday, and he wants me to go with him. After giving it some more thought, I guess it wasn’t really too cold last year, and perhaps it might rain at the seashore and then I wouldn’t enjoy it at all. The mountains are only 300 miles away. I think I’ll write to Jim right now and tell him I’ll go with him.
