Spending money on time-saving services reduces stress and boosts (增进happiness, according to a new research, but shockingly, few of us do it.
Whillans, a professor at HBS said, “Buying time helps to protect us from the stress in our lives caused by time pressure, and the feeling that we don’ t have enough minutes in the day to complete our tasks.’’
The effect was clearest in the Canadian experiment, in which 60 working adults were given $40 to spend in two different ways. One weekend, they were told to spend the money on a material purchase—a gift for themselves. The next weekend, they were instructed to spend the $40 on anything that saved them time, from paying the neighbor’s kid to run errands (跑腿to taking a Uber instead of a bus.
“On the day they made the time-saving purchase, they felt happier, in a better mood, and lower feelings of time stress than on the day they bought a material purchase” said Whillans.
The biggest surprise to the researchers was how few people would spend money on time-saving services. When they asked 98 working adults how they would spend a “windfall” of $40, only two percent named a purchase that would save them time.
“One reason,’’ said Whillans, “is that we’re very bad at remembering how much we hate doing certain tasks once the suffering has passed. That makes us less likely to take active steps to avoid that over burdened feeling in the future.” But another possible cause is good old-fashioned guilt. “If you feel guilty about getting someone to clean your house for you, then you might get less happiness from outsourcing that task,” said Whillans, or you might just be less likely to spend your money in that way. ’’
In the Canadian experiment, the participants	.
were divided into two groups
were given $ 40 every two weeks
were asked to give money to a neighbor’s kid
were asked to spend the money in different ways
According to the author, what can make people less time-stressed?
Paying much for a concert ticket.
Taking a regular bus to get to work.
Employing someone to clean the garden.
Buying themselves an expensive present.
When it comes to spending money on ‘‘buying time”, 	.
no people would like to do it
a small percentage of people choose to do it
more people will do it if extra money is given
most people like the idea but don’t practice it in life
7. What do the underlined words “that overburdened feeling” in Paragraph 6 refer to?
A. The good old-fashioned guilt.
B. The feeling of spending money on goods.
C. The stress of having someone clean your house.
D. The discomfort when completing tasks we hate doing.

German artist HA Schult is an unusual artist who uses trash to make sculptures. “We are living in the time of garbage,” says Schult. “I created a thousand sculptures of garbage. They are a mirror of ourselves.” Here, Schult was talking about his 1,000 trash sculptures in the form of humans. He first exhibited them in 1996 in the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
“They are social sculptures,” he explains. “They are not only sculptures for the eyes. They are sculptures to spread the idea that we live in a time of garbage.” So far, Schult’s social sculptures have been on show in Paris, in Moscow’s Red Square, on the Great Wall of China, and in the desert next to the Giza Pyramids near Cairo.
HA Schult’s work is unforgettable. Although his work has had a big influence on the art world, Schult remains modest about his creations: “Artists have to learn every time. We are not important. All that counts is the time in which we are living.”
Trash art has been around for years. But it seems that only the popular artists are regarded as true artists when working with trash. Why can’t common people be considered artists when they use the same things and change them into some form of personal art? Maybe it’s because we all have our own preset ideas of what art is and isn’t, or who artists are or should be.
You can be an artist like Schult if you try. Look at used metal cans. What might be done with them? Imagine them in any number of new uses, or imagine them simply as an art form. What about boxes or clothing? Boxes can usually serve as new storage containers and houses for pets. And clothing? Imagine taking old clothes and turning them into hats or hanging organizers.
8. What do we know about Schult’s sculptures?
A. They served as garbage containers.
B. They reflected environmental issues.
C. They were first shown in Paris, France.
D. They were to raise economic awareness.
9. HA Schult’s artistic works also get the message across that an artist must__________.
A. be socially responsible
B. be as modest as possible
C. make garbage recyclable
D. take diverse artistic forms
10. According to the last 2 Paragraphs, the author probably agrees that __________.
A. it takes talent to be a trash artist
B. preset ideas are important to artists
C. trash art can't be seen as a real art form
D. average people can also make trash artists
11. Which of the following is the best title for the text?
A. Could You Be a Trash Artist?
B. What Are Social Sculptures?
C. Do You Know About Trash Art?
D. How Can We Deal with Used Cans?
D
As a child, visiting the zoo was more a punishment than a treat. I didn’t find the chimps’ tea parties funny, nor the bird shows entertaining. Feeding time for seals was less painful, but their performances still seemed like they belonged more in a circus. 
And I hated circuses, especially the animal acts — men teasing lions, girls balancing on elephants and monkeys playing football. I knew that every trick a circus animal did was unnatural, achieved through strict training and quite possibly cruelty.
Happily, during my lifetime public attitudes and the law have changed. Circuses using wild animals are now almost extinct, and zoos have definitely evolved. 
When my children were young, I occasionally took them to our local zoo. The elephants were in tiny cages and the gorillas looked bored as they sat peeling bananas and staring at teasing visitors. Each cage had a sign which listed the animal’s name and where it came from. But, back then, there was little information included about the environmental challenges they faced.  
As a result, environmentalists and animal lovers often oppose zoos. “Animals belong in the wild,” is a common and understandable complaint. But what do the animals themselves prefer? 
Generally speaking, zoo animals have a longer life. But — you may protest — they are not free. What? Free to be hunted and killed, free to die of hunger or thirst? Maybe sitting in a cage eating bananas isn’t so bad.
Not that such conditions are acceptable in modern zoos, due to the work of BIAZA, the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums. These days every zoo requires BIAZA’s approval to operate, and the association sets the standards, observes conditions in zoos and develops animal-research programmes, both in the UK and abroad. BIAZA also organises the animal exchanges between zoos all over the world.  
Consequently, today, most zoo animals are born and raised in zoos, live in large, comfortable enclosures and are cared for by well-trained, knowledgeable and caring zoo employees. Of course it’s no substitute for living in the wild but unfortunately this isn’t always possible. Meanwhile, why not visit your local zoo and decide for yourself?
12. The passage is mainly about __________.
A. how zoos have improved
B. whether a zoo should be closed down
C. a new environmental organisation
D. the difference between zoos and circuses
13. From Paragraph 2, we can guess that the writer believes circus animals __________.
A. had much shorter lives than those in the wild
B. were not treated well by their trainers
C. should have been placed in zoos 
D. were not as intelligent as those in zoos
14. Which of the following roles are performed by BIAZA?
A. Organising animal study projects and training zoo workers.
B. Checking zoo conditions and arranging animal exchanges.
C. Designing zoos and approving zoo operations.
D. Caring for ill animals and setting zoo standards.
15. Which of the following statements about zoos would the writer agree with?
A. Zoo animals should be freed into the wild.
B. Zoos are more popular now than in the past. 
C. Zoo animals are more restricted than in the past.
D. Zoos now provide caring living conditions for animals.

Language is part of our daily lives, no matter where we live in the world. It is the same with music, whether you listen to it on the radio on your drive to work or sit before an orchestra. Both language and music play a huge role in our culture. 16____
Both language and music have a writing system. In English we record language using the alphabet, which is a collection of letters. In the same way, we use notes to keep a record of music. Just as you are reading this collection of letters on the screen and find meaning in it, musicians read notes and create meaning in the form of music which we can hear. 17   By writing pieces of text or music, we are able to share experiences through time. I can read the ideas or hear the composition of someone who lived hundreds of years ago, which is really quite exciting.
18   You can make a good guess at where someone is from by listening to the language they use. In the same way, we know that styles of music are different around the world, giving us the opportunity to explore many different cultures through their music and providing us with music for every situation. 19   Even if you don’t like Britpop melodies, you may love the energy of Latin American salsa music.
Both share emotion. How do you know that I am angry? Of course you may be able to see it in my face, but you will know for sure through my words. 20   Music can show you exactly how the composer was or is feeling, and allows us to share in that emotion. When you feel happy, you might want to sing and dance to a happy song to celebrate your happiness. In contrast, you have probably also listened to sad music when you were feeling down. I think we have all used music to express or process our emotions, often combining it with language in the form of song lyrics.
A. Both vary with culture.
B. Here are some of their similarities.
C. They have some distinguishing characteristics.
D. So just as you read English, you can read music.
E. Similarly, music can sound angry, sad or happy.
F. This also means that there is something for everyone!
G. This also means everyone can learn language and music well!

书面表达
Dear Ms Chen,
I’m a student from Class 2, Grade 3. I’m writing to apply for the position as a student volunteer.
I really want to obtain this precious opportunity because, by offering my service, I will be able to improve my organizational ability, communication skills as well as my confidence in speaking English in public.
As an outgoing girl, I get along well with my classmates. Besides, I have such a good command of English that I am elected as an assistant to my English teacher. Successfully, I have lent a helping hand to her in several English activities of my class, which have been appreciated by both teachers and classmates.
     I am sure that I can perfectly live up to your expectations. I would appreciate it you could take me into consideration.
Looking forward to your reply.
                                                                                                            Yours,
                                                                                                           Li Hua
