For most of my 20 years as a teacher, summer vacation was my time to relax. So why was I standing in the schoolyard of an unfamiliar school, wearing myself out for a summer teaching job? The extra paychecks were nice, but I lacked the energy of my younger colleagues. Like Stella. She was in her early twenties, and made keeping up with the kids look effortless. She reminded me of myself, back when I was a bright-eyed student teacher at Ramona Elementary…
I’d never forget my first day. I was too full of energy. Nervous energy. My supervising teacher was watching, and I wanted to make a good impression. I asked my third graders to take out their crayons for the day’s lesson. All of them obeyed. Except one. A girl with two long, dark braids(辫子). Everyone called her Estrellita, or “little star.” Why was she unprepared for class? I demanded to know.
“My sister has my crayons,” she said.
“You should each have your own crayons,” I told her. “That’s no excuse.”
“There are 10 children in my family,” Estrellita said quietly, her big brown eyes never leaving my face. “We have to take turns.”
I was taken aback. I’d completely misjudged the situation. All day Estrellita’s words played on my mind. The next morning I bought a pack of crayons to leave on Estrellita’s desk. She was so happy! That experience taught me an important lesson. Every student had a unique set of challenges—it was my mission to help my students overcome them. That mission used to energize(激励 )me.
Rest was almost over. Stella turned to me and we started chatting. “How long have you been teaching?” she asked. I told her I’d started twenty years before, at Ramona Elementary.
“I went to school there twenty years ago!” Stella said. I looked at her again, this time really seeing her. Those big brown eyes. That long, dark hair...
“Did you use to have two long braids?” I said. “We called you Estrellita… ”
Stella shouted. “ You ! You gave me the crayons!”
She’d become a teacher. To help students like I did. Even doing something that small mattered.
That summer, I threw myself into teaching with a renewed sense of purpose. Estrellita had taught me a lesson once again.
24. How did the author feel according to Paragraph 1?
A. She felt relaxed.						B. She felt very tired.
C. She was still excited.					D. She was proud of herself.
25. Why didn’t Estrellita take out her crayons?
A. She had to share them.				B. She was being naughty.
C. She forgot to bring them.				D. She lost them before the class.
26. Which can replace the underlined part “taken aback” in Paragraph 6?
A. fairly serious. 	 B. quite pleased. 		C. very surprised.  	D. extremely angry.
27. What did the author learn through Stella?
A. Never make excuses. 				B. Why her job mattered.
C. How to be a good teacher. 			D. To be a giver, not a receiver.
C
It was Saturday morning. I heard loud noises of moving furniture in the next room. I could almost feel the excitement of John who was soon going to get a room of his own. I remember my own feelings when I was 13. I knew how much he longed for his right to privacy (私人空间) when he was sharing a room with his younger brother, Robot. He said, “Mum, Can I please have a room of my own? I could use Jeff’s. He won’t mind.” 
It was true that Jeff had graduated from college and flown from the nest. But would he mind? The room was the place where I told him a thousand stories and we had a thousand talks. As close as we were, though, the time came when Jeff needed a door between us. His life was spreading into areas that had less to do with family. I no longer could-or should-know everything about him.
It turned out that getting Jeff’s permission was easy. He said, “Of course, Mum, it would be selfish of me to hold on to it.” Then his voice softened, “Mum, I won’t be living at home again---you know that.” Behind his glasses, his eyes were lit with all the love. There were no doors closed here---they had all opened up again.
As John and I were cleaning the room, I fixed my eyes on Jeff’s things around me and could almost touch the little boy who I knew was gone forever. I looked at the room and, in my heart, I let it go. To hold on would be, as Jeff said, selfish. Now it was time for John, shouldering through the door, his eyes bright with promise of independence, to disappear behind the door. It was time for letting go to happen again.
28. How did John feel when he finally got a room of his own?
A. Scared.            B. Confused.        C. Excited.      D. Anxious.
29. The underlined sentence in the second paragraph probably means “______”.
A. Jeff finally flew out of the house          
B. Jeff needed his right to privacy
C. Jeff would have less to do with his family   
D. Jeff got tired of those familiar stories
30. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. John was sharing a room with Jeff.	
B. John was moving to live with his brother.
C. Jeff agreed to let his brother have his room.
D. Jeff disliked living with his parents.	

31. It can be inferred from the passage that ______.
A. the children did not like to live with adults
B. all her three kids made the author feel depressed
C. none of the members in the family thought the same way
D. the author loved and missed the time together with her kids 
D
The bike-sharing companies that are powering a transportation revolution in China’s urban centers are not like those in the rest of the world. Their bikes have no docking ports or assigned zones for parking. Instead, riders open their smartphone apps, hop on, and start riding. So easy!
In 2015, Ofo, China’s bike-share pioneer, launched its first fleet of bicycles in Beijing. The bikes’ bright yellow frames were soon met by the orange-rimmed(镶边), basket-equipped models launched by Mobike, Ofo’s main competitor today. In little over a year, the two companies have had a huge impact on revitalizing (重振) cycling in China, particularly among young people.
Ofo placed 1 million bicycles across 35 cities and registered 15 million users in its first years, while Mobike has now gained more than 10 million unique users and bicycles in 21 cities. Inspired by their success, at least 10 other companies have jumped into the market, launching their own app-powered, brightly colored bikes in quick succession. But Mobike and Ofo are far ahead of them.
The two industry leaders each take a different marketing method to a similar product. The Mobike app uses GPS to display bikes’ locations to users. They can use the map to reserve a bike and walk over to it. A scan of the bike’s QR code (二维码) unlocks the bike, and when users manually(手动地) lock the bike at the end of their trip, the app records the trip’s end and the bike will pop back up on the map as available. Equipped with this wireless technology, Mobikes cost between 1,000 and 3,000 yuan. Rides cost 1 yuan for an hour or a half hour, depending on whether a user chooses a “Lite” or regular bike, and the deposit (押金) required to the service is 299 yuan.
Ofo, meanwhile, is devoted not just to producing its own bikes, which have slim yellow bodies and cost about 250 yuan, but also to connecting existing bikes to its network----- a philosophy that begins with the practice of 2000 bikes offered to a campus bike-share program. The 2000 bikes were the first generation of Ofo. Yet the majority of the company’s bikes are currently ones that have been specially manufactured and fitted with their lock system. Unlike Mobike,Ofo bikes themselves are offline: their locations are tracked through users’ cell phones. Users find a free bike, enter the license plate number into their app, and receive the bike unlock code. When they have reached their destination, they end the ride on the app and manually lock the bike. Rides cost 1 yuan for an hour and the deposit is 99 yuan.
32. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage?
   A. The bike rides based on apps are available whenever you need.
   B. The bike body in bright color only attracts young people to choose cycling.
   C. Ofo knows their bikes’ location by scanning the bike’s QR code.
   D. The bikes are locked automatically when the users reached their destination.
Which of the following is close to the meaning of the underlined word “succession ”in the 
    3rd paragraph?
   A. successful experience.             B. movement to action.
   C. continuous process .               D. production line.
34. How are Ofo bikes different from Mobikes?
   ① no need for online condition.        
   ② without their own lock system.
   ③ not only to produce ofo bikes but also put existing ones to use.
   ④ to unlock the bike through app.      
   ⑤ to lock the bike by QR code   
 A. ①②⑤          B. ②③④        C. ②④⑤           D. ①③④   
35. What is the best title of the passage?
   A. Bike-sharing business models: Mobike and Ofo.
   B. A real transportation innovation(创新): app-powered bicycles.
   C. The successful secret of two bike-sharing companies.
   D. Cool experience of app-powered bicycles.
第二节(共5小题;每小题2分,满分10分)

I think the majority of people would agree that it’s unhealthy to live in the past. After all, we’re all familiar with the new age philosophy, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.       36        . Living in the past holds us back from being able to enjoy the present moment. But are there any benefits of revisiting a previous time? Actually, yes. The past has several advantages:
Learning from our mistakes: We all know that poor choices can be some of life’s greatest teachers.        37         .
     38       : By revisiting an unfavorable event from our past, we can often view it from a different perspective as time has passed. Being older and wiser, we are now able to reevaluate the experience and gain deeper insights and understandings of what happened and why, and how it has impacted us since. What once scarred us can now be healed through a newly-found awareness and no longer be a negative force in our lives.
Motivated by earlier successes:      39       . Other times life has been difficult. Remembering the past when we were at our best can help motivate us out of our current slump(低谷) and put us back on track for success. Use your past successes to propel(推动) you on to newer and greater things.
While it’s evident that revisiting the past has several advantages, there is a warning. Just like an amusement park, it’s fine to visit but you cannot stay there forever. At some point, the park closes and all visitors are asked to leave. Enjoy the past when necessary but don’t always stay there. Use it for living in the present and planning for the future.        40        .
A. Moving beyond
B. That’s why it’s called the present
C. In that way, it will serve you well
D. See the mistakes as a step on the road to a solution
E. There are times when we have all enjoyed success on a variety of levels
F. Recalling times when we made mistakes can help us make better future decisions
G. So, failure is the mother of success

I’ve always had strong opinions of how love should be expressed, but others have their own ways of showing care.
What I   41   most about visiting my boyfriend’s parents is the loud tick of the clock in the dining room as we   42   ate our meal.With so little conversation I was quick to regard his family as  43 .When we got into the car to go home, his father suddenly appeared. 44  , he began to wash his son’s windscreen.I could feel he is a 45  man through the glass.
I learned another lesson about 46  a few years later.My father often  47  me early in the morning.“Buy Xerox.It’s a good sharp price,” he might say when I answered the phone.No pleasant 48  or inquiry about my life, just financial instructions. This manner of his angered  me and we often  49 .But one day, I thought about my father’s success in business and realized that his  50  for my financial security lay behind his short morning calls.The next time he called and told me to buy a stockI  51  him.
When my social style has 52  with that of my friends, I’ve often felt disappointed.For example, I always return phone calls   53  and regularly contact my friends.I expect the same from them.I had one friend who   54  called, answering my messages with short e-mails.I rushed to the   55  : She wasn’t a good friend! My anger grew as the holidays approached.But then she came to a gathering I   56  and handed me a beautiful dress I had fallen in love with when we did some window-shopping the previous month.I was shocked at her thoughtfulness, and  57  for how I’d considered her to be uncaring.Clearly I needed to  58  my expectations of friends.
Far too often, I ignored their  59  expressions, eagerly expecting them to do things in my way .Over the years, however, I’ve learned to  60  other persons’ love signs.

Dear Sir/ Madame, 
    I happened to read about your ad asking for volunteers for the coming Chinese Art Festival.
I would be more than happy if I could recommend my friend John, an English student on a brief visit to his relatives here, to be one of your volunteers and contribute to the success of the festival.
    As a teenager, he is outgoing and honest, always ready to socialize with people. Meanwhile, I consider this a good chance for him to get a dip into Chinese culture, and introduce English culture to people here as well. Should he have the privilege to be admitted, I am sure he would make the most of the chance to promote the mutual understanding between the two cultures, introducing English culture to people here. 
   I would be grateful if you could give him such a chance. Looking forward to your reply.
Yours,
                                                          Li Hua

Text3:
M: Did you say you were driving to town this morning?
W: I’d planned to drive there, but in the end, I decided to cycle there instead with David. It’s much more convenient than taking a bus. 
Text 4:
M: When you send your email to your Turkish pen friend, do you write it in Turkish?
W: No, although I come from France, now I’m in Brazil. And we both want to practice our English.
Text 5:
W: Can I help you, sir?
M: I’d like to buy a black T-shirt, with short sleeves, please.
W: I’m afraid the black ones have long sleeves, but we’ve got short sleeves in blue and yellow.
M: OK. I’ll take the blue one. The color is not so important really.
Text 6:
W: David, do you often help your brother with his maths at home?
M: Yes. Tim isn’t very good at maths. But he does very well in chemistry.
W: I’ve the same problem. Maths just doesn’t like me. I’m not good at science, either. 
M. Then what are you good at?
W: Like your brother, I do well in chemistry. David, could I learn with your brother when you 
   teach him maths at home?
M: Sure. I usually help with his maths in the evening every Wednesday and Friday.
Text 7:
W: Whoa! Did you just go swimming in a pool of sweat or what?
M: No.It was hot out there, and I ran two miles more than I usually do.
W: I’ll bet you lost five pounds of your body weight!
M: Yeah. I can’t wait to take a shower. Have you seen my brown shorts?
W: Yeah, they’re in the laundry room. Why don’t you throw those dirty clothes in there, and I’ll wash them with the others?
M: Good idea. Let me just get something to drink first. I’m really thirsty.
W: Yeah, of course. First things first!
Text 8:
M: Excuse me, Mrs. Green. Can I speak to you for a few minutes?
W: Yes, of course, Henry. What’s up?
M: It’s about my mother. She’s ill and has to go to hospital tomorrow. The doctor says she needs
   a small operation. The problem is my daughter, the baby. You see, my wife is on a business 
   trip in China now. She won’t return until next Friday. So there’s nobody to look after my 
   daughter.
W: You mean you need a few days off to look after you daughter?
M: Yes, that’s it. Will that be right?
W: Yes, I’m sure it will. All I want to do now is to make sure there’s someone to take your place
   to follow up on our project while you’re away. How long did you say you need?
M: My mother should be out of hospital next Wednesday, so I can be back the day after that.
W: OK.
Text 9:
M: Hi, Jennifer! I called your home this afternoon, but nobody answered the phone.
W: I wasn’t at home this afternoon. I went to Safari World with my brother today, and my 
   parents were at my grandparents’.
M: No wonder. So how was Safari World?
W: It was great! I especially liked the monkeys. They were jumping all over the trees. They were
   so cute.
M: Did you feed them?
W: Yes. The zoo workers allowed us to feed them some bananas. Those were the only animals 
   we were allowed to feed there.
M: Did you see any lions there?
W: Yes. They were just walking around, looking relaxed. We were not allowed to get too close to 
   them. I just took a few pictures of the lions and then went to see the tigers.
M: What did you think of the tigers?
W: Not very impressive. They were just lying around and sleeping. I was really impressed by the 
   peacocks. They were so beautiful. By the way, why did you call me this afternoon?
M: I wanted to invite you to a movie. I went with Sara instead.
W: Sorry I missed it.

Good morning! I’m Samuel Davis, and this is the ten o’clock news report. I hope everyone is having a fine Monday morning. It’s getting pretty wet out there, so take an umbrella and stay dry! I’m here today with Matt Milter, who has completed his 29000-mile journey in just six weeks, with a total of 180 hours in flight. Beginning in California, he made twenty-five stops in fourteen different countries including England, Italy, Greece and Egypt. His longest trip was a sixteen-hour flight from Hawaii back to California. 
Born in South Dakota, Matt has said that as a child he was scared of flying. All of that changed when he received his pilot license at just seventeen. After that, he only spent a few years planning everything out before beginning his journey around the world. Matt is here with us today for an interview. Welcome, Matt! First, why don’t you tell all our listeners about the craziest thing you saw during your adventure?
