Yesterday，it was finally ready!
It’s 35 miles long and runs 7，5 00 feet beneath the Swiss Alps，a famous mountain range in Switzerland．It even runs under an old tunnel that was there before．It took a total of 17 years to build at a cost of $12 billion 128 million tons of rock were dug．Two million truckloads of earth were removed!
The tunnel connects northern and southern Europe．The opening of this tunnel was such a big deal that the Germany’s leader，Chancellor Angela Merkel，France’s president，Francois Hollande，and Italy’s prime minister，Matteo Renzi，were all there to celebrate，as was Austria’s chancellor Christian Kern．
It’s called the Gotthard Base Tunnel． Eventually，325 freight and passenger trains will go through the tunnel，relieving a lot of traffic on the roadways there and making it a more environmentally friendly option．The Gotthard Base Tunnel is a wonder of engineering!Make us want to visit it!

A European Union program is letting blind people experience famous paintings for the first time．It uses three dimensional(3-D)printing to re-create famous paintings so they can be touched．
One painting printed with the new technology is Gustav Klimt’s“The Kiss．”It is a popular attraction at the Belvedere Museum in Vienna，Austria．The painting shows a man and a woman standing in a field filled with flowers．They are wearing gold robes and have their arms around each other．The man leans down to kiss the woman．
Klimt finished the painting in 1908．Until now，people who had trouble seeing could not
appreciate the artwork．But thanks to the reproduction they can touch the piece and feel the ridges and depressions．Andreas Reichinger started making 3-D versions of artwork in 2010．He said this reproduction was his most difficult project because the couple’s robes are so detailed．
Dominika Raditsch is a blind museum visitor．She touched the reproduction．As she moved her hands around it she said，“Exactly，can you see these?There are so many details．”Raditsch said she can imagine what the original painting looks like when she touches the reproduction．“It’s somehow round．You can feel it．You can feel it．It comes with it．And in many places it’s so smooth．And then I think to myself：it probably shines too!”Raditsch said．
The Belvedere is not the only museum to have 3-D versions of its artwork．Some of the pieces at the Prado，in Madrid，Spain have reproductions that can be touched．But the piece in Vienna has one special part：It is made with widely available 3-D printing technology．That means one day，blind art fans anywhere in the world could download the source files and print the reproductions themselves．

Tea，the most typical English drink，became established in Britain because of the influence of a foreign princess，Catherine of Braganza，the queen of Charles II．As a lover of tea since her childhood in Portugal，she brought tea-drinking to the English royal court and set a trend for the beverage in the 17th century．The fashion soon spread beyond the circle of the nobility to the middle classes，and tea became a popular drink at the London coffee houses where people met to do business and discuss events of the day．Many employers served a cup of tea to their workers in the middle of the morning，thus inventing a lasting British institution，the“tea break．”However，drinking tea in social settings outside the workplace was beyond the means of the majority of British people．It came with a high price tag and tea was taxed as well．
Around 1 800，the seventh Duchess of Bedford，Anne Maria，began the popular practice
of“afternoon tea，”a ceremony taking place at about four o’clock．Until then，people did not
usually eat or drink anything between lunch and dinner．At approximately the same time，the
Earl of Sandwich popularized a new way of eating bread—in thin slices，with something like jam or cucumbers between them．Before long，a small meal at the end of the afternoon，involving tea and sandwiches，had become part of the British way of life．
As tea became much cheaper during the 19th century，its popularity spread right through all corners of the British society．Thus，tea became Britain’s favorite drink．In working-class households，it was served with the main meal of the day，eaten when workers returned home after a day’s labor．This meal has become known as“high tea．”Today，tea can be drunk at any time of the day，and accounts for over two-fifths of all drinks consumed in Britain-with the exception of water．

D．Its popularity in Europe．
33．What does the underlined words“the beverage”probably refer to?
A．Tea drinking． B．A small meal．
C．A way of eating b read． D．A choice of drinks．

A．It was merely served in London．
B．It was taxed as an alcoholic drink．
C．It was forbidden in business settings．
D．It was too expensive for most people．
35．How is the text organized?

I spent last summer volunteering at a hospital．It was a gift to 41 so many amazing people and I’d like to share one of these moments．One day，I was called to a room where a(n) 42 woman was staying．Usually I helped with 43 who were ready to leave．Instead，she 44 to go to the gift shop．I got a 45 ，helped her into it，and headed down to the entrance．

shop．As I pushed her around，I could see the 47 in her face as she looked at everything， happy to be out of her room．She 48 some window decorations，and then saw chocolates．

第四部分 写 作(35分)
Studying in the UK have been a good experience for me．When I first arrived．I find life very hard as I didn’t know anybody here．but I soon got to know other Chinese student at the university． Later I became interesting in communicating with people from various cultures，and I made fewer friends．
During my study．I chose to live in with my classmates in the dormitory．I think it’s better than living in British family because I can meet people from different countries easy．The courses here are excellent．I enjoy the way the teachers give lessons．We are encouraged to think for yourselves，which is quite different from that I have experienced before．
Looking forward to your early reply.
