  Workforce of the Future

  The workplace is changing rapidly. Rather than the standard working day of nine to five, employees are working more flexibly to meet their busy home lives. Advances in technology are ___31___ the very nature of the tasks and skills required in the workplace.

  To gain a full perspective of how the workplace is set to change over the next decade, employee benefits provider Unum UK ___32___ with The Future Laboratory to survey 3,000 workers across several industries. They also interviewed industry experts and business leaders on topics from artificial intelligence and robotics to the increase of flexible working and an ageing workforce.

  The result outlines some of the employment changes that businesses can expect to see over the next decade and predicts the ___33___ of two worker cultures which will dominate the workforce. They are the obligated and the self-fulfilled workers.

  “Obligated workers” refer to people with dependents and the sandwich generation, ___34___ raising children with caring for elderly parents. Therefore, they value a career ___35___ to life stages and events and financial security. Joel Defries, 33, father of one kid and partner at London Vodka said, “A flexible employer will allow me to have a long paternity leave (陪产假) and to value my family just as much as I value my job.”

  Self-fulfilled workers are committed to life-long learning and acquiring new skills rather than ___36___ to an employer. They actively look for personal development and want employee benefits that help them ___37___ both their personal and professional ambitions. They treat personal commitments and pursuits as ___38___ to professional commitments. Elly Kemp, 31, ___39___ a full-time employee, now working part-time in a caféand also assisting with her grandmother’s care said, “My approach to work allows me the freedom to ___40___ my career at my own pace. I want my work to be fluid so I can change it when I want and do whatever makes me happy at the time.”

  III. Reading Comprehension

  Section A

  Directions: For each blank in the following passage there are four words or phrases marked A,B,C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context.

  Early decision — you apply to one school, and admission is binding (有法律约束力的) — seems like a great choice for nervous applicants. Schools ___41___ a higher percentage of early-decision applicants, which arguably means that you have a better chance of being enrolled. And if you do, you’re done with the whole painful process by December. But most students and parents don’t realize that schools have hidden ___42___ for offering early decision.

  Early decision, since it’s binding, allows schools to fill their classes with qualified students; it allows ___43___ committees to select the students that are in particular demand for their college and know those students will come. It also gives schools a higher yield rate (优秀学生率), which is often used as one of the ways to ___44___ college selectivity and popularity.

  The problem is that this process effectively ___45___ the window of time students have to make one of the most important decisions of their lives up to that point. Under ___46___ admissions, seniors have to choose which school to attend until May 1; early decision effectively steals six months from them, months that could be used to visit more schools, do more research, speak to current students and alumni (校友) and make a more ___47___ decision.

  For any given student in America, whatever their levels are, there are a number of schools that are a great ___48___. When students become too fixed on a particular school early in the admissions process, that fixation can lead to ___49___ severe disappointment if they don’t get in or, if they do, it is likely that they are now bound to go to a school that, given time for further ___50___, may not actually be right for them.

  Early decision offers a genuine admissions edge. That advantage goes largely to students who already have ___51___ advantages. The students who use early decision tend to be those who have received higher-quality college guidance, usually a result of coming from a more advantaged background. ___52___, there’s an argument against early decision, as students from lower-income families are far less likely to have the admissions know-how (招生诀窍) to ___53___ figure out the often confusing early deadlines.

  Students who have done their research and are confident that there’s one school they would be thrilled to get into should, under the current system, probably ___54___ under early decision. For students who haven’t yet done enough research, or who are still constantly changing their minds on favorite schools, the early-decision system needlessly and prematurely ___55___ the field of possibility just at a time when students should be opening themselves to a whole range of thrilling options.

  41. A. let in B. turn down C. make up D. give away

  42. A. dangers B. costs C. assumptions D. purposes

  55. A. occupies B. encloses C. narrows D. explores

  Section B

  Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.

  (A)

  One recent night, while I was leafing through its pages of an old journal, my eyes met a quote by the British writer Graham Greene that I had marked. “A prejudice had something in common with an ideal.” In other words, ideals — general descriptions of people’s expectations of themselves and others — can often lead us to unreasonable ideas. It got me thinking about how we often allow ourselves to generalize about groups of people. We like to stereotype people by the color of their skin, the year of their birth or any other related factors.

  I grew up in a multi-racial corner of America. The different groups were often subject to narrow stereotypes: Jewish people were “greedy,” Mexicans were “poorly educated,” and Asians were “good at math.” These labels were taught to us from a young age. They wormed their way into our belief systems, harming how we came to see others. It made me sad growing up to see people repeat these stereotypes as if they were true. The rush-to-judgment of people breeds a culture of discrimination (歧视).

  You can also see these over-generalized description being made against today’s Chinese people. Whether it be a lack of interest or worry among millennials (千禧一代) being described as “monkish,” or “dad-fashion (复古作风)” which has given the “greasy middle-aged men” tag, stereotypes always seem to gain a foothold in the consciousness of our society. But these generalizations do real harm as these myths may become part of the wider population.

  It’s about time that we, as a society, walked away from generalizations and stereotypes. I leave you with the words of Martin Luther King Jr. from his famous “I Have a Dream” speech: “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” By reserving judgment and really getting to know the individual, you might just find your irrational ideas have no foundation.

  56. According to the passage, how do people tend to judge others?

  A. By describing people’s personalities.

  B. By truly getting to know those around.

  C. By observing their noticeable features.

  D. By following Martin Luther King’s speech.

  57. According to the author, a culture of discrimination appears because ________.

  A. people live in places of various races

  B. people are born with unreasonable ideas

  C. prejudices slightly influence people’s belief system

  D. people usually make judgments without thinking twice

  58. Examples of “millennials” and “dad-fashion” are mentioned in Paragraph 3 to reveal ________.

  A. generalizations have unfavourable position in society

  B. generalizations have a negative influence on our society

  C. generalizations are found peculiar to the middle-aged Chinese

  D. generalizations make today’s Chinese people lack interest or worry

  59. The passage is mainly concerned with ________.

  A. the common prejudice B. people’s expectation of themselves

  C. the groundless worries D. the famous speech of Martin Luther King

  (B)

  When you cross deep water driving too fast, you risk splashing water up into the air box and having it get sucked into the internal engine, which is more common than you think. There are a few steps you should take to clear the water out before you try to start it:

  1. First, drain the fuel tank, fuel lines and the oil. While it's draining, put a fan on the wiring and dry it out. Remove and clean the carburetor (化油器).

  2. Take the plugs out of the engine and turn it over to force any water out. Water will come out with the oil. Add oil to the engine and turn it over again, without the plug in. Let it sit for a while, then observe the oil to tell if there's any water in it (it will look like a white milky substance if there is water mixed with the oil). If it's there, drain it again and start over until there is little or no white showing in the oil.

  3. Now re-install the spark plug, add gas, then try to start the engine. You should have a can of ether (乙醚) handy just in case it's stubborn, but don't use too much. If it starts, let it run for a few minutes without making it work faster.

  4. After it runs for several minutes, shut it off, drain the oil and change the filter(过滤网). Run it again for a few minutes then shut it off and checks again for milky colored oil. If you have none, you should be good to go.

  5. If you cannot start the engine, you may have already ruined it and you will probably need to seek a professional to repair it, or, more likely, you'll have to replace it.

  60. According to the passage, a driver turns the engine over after oil is added to it so that he can _______.

  A. drain the oil and change the filter without any difficulty

  B. re-install the spark plug and get ready to start the car again

  C. make a milky substance which is the mixture of water and oil

  D. see whether there is any water in the engine by checking the oil

  61. The underlined word “stubborn” in paragraph 4 may probably means ________.

  A. reluctant to change B. hard to switch on

  C. insufficient to burn D. unable to take in

  62. This passage may be most helpful to ________.

  A. a policeman who knows much about car accidents

  B. a secretary who has just driven across a small pond

  C. a driver who is incapable of fixing the car by himself

  D. a teacher who is to carry out her routine car maintenance

  (C)

  One of the features of a successful business is its ability to employ creativity to constantly push into new territory. Without growth and innovation, businesses eventually fade away. Those with staying power, however, have mastered an often-overlooked factor that allows them to focus on the future clearly: empathy (共情). While that may surprise many, I am certain that the ability to connect with and relate to others —empathy in its purest form — is the force that moves businesses forward.

  Though the concept of empathy might go against the modern concept of a traditional workplace — competitive, the reality is that for business leaders to experience success, they need to not just see or hear the activity around them, but also relate to the people they serve.

  Some may think they want the results from doggedly (顽强地) pursuing their goals without much thought for other people. This attitude works for some, but at some point — often sooner rather than later — everyone needs to rely on their relationships and established personal and professional connections. These relationships are the product of taking an honest and dedicated interest in others and their businesses. Successful people do not operate alone; each of us needs the support of others to achieve positive results that push us toward our goals. True empathy combines understanding both the emotional and the logical rationale(根据) that goes into every decision.

  Effectively understanding empathy involves viewing it as each person’s connection to the people and marketplace that surround them. A biological principle known as co-evolution explains that the adaptation of an organism is caused by the change of a related object. Similarly, businesses and their leaders participate in co-evolution-type relationships. Business success depends on empathetic leaders who are able to adapt, build on the strengths around them, and relate to their environment. When businesses fail, it is often because leaders have stopped focusing on understanding their environment and instead stay separated in their own operations. Successful business leaders are receptive to disturbance and aware of what is going on in their organizations both internally and externally.

  To develop an effective workforce, we must be willing to give in and meet people where they are. This can be frustrating and uncomfortable, particularly when you feel like your position makes more sense or offers a better solution. A critical part of developing empathy, however, is learning to understand, respect and implement another individual’s point of view rather than forcing your own.

  63. In the author’s opinion, if a company wants to achieve success, it must ________.

  A. frequently develop in new areas B. always stay pure and powerful

  C. concentrate on its future development D. value much thought for others

  64. It can be inferred from the passage that _________.

  A. empathy generally depends on logical reasons

  B. supports from others help to achieve ambitions

  C. competition rarely exists in traditional workplaces

  D. striving for goals on one’s own is the key to success

  65. Which of the following examples can best illustrate the co-evolution principle?

  A. The boss is too occupied to realize that his employees’ income is below the average.

  B. The head of the news agency offers little bonus to the journalists who work extra hours.

  C. The principal promises flexible working hours after the school moves to the countryside.

  D. The factory director insists on increasing the output despite the declining market demand.

  66. What can be the best title of this passage?

  A. Empathy and Business Success B. The Formation of Empathy

  C. Empathy and Aggressiveness D. The Importance of Empathy

  Section C

  Directions: Read the following passage. Fill in each blank with a proper sentence given in the box. Each sentence can be used only once. Note that there are two more sentences than you need.

  A. BAT wanted to take action.

  B. Those who gave more tended to gain less.

  C. The data are ridiculous, and no one is really paying attention.

  D. By nature, educators are taught to give care and support others — not themselves.

  E. Although respected for its own sake, teaching is under suspicion in today’s world.

  F. After all, self-care, good mental health, positive well-being is one of the single best things you can do for yourself.

  We need to do more to help the teachers who are exhausted and stressed

  Teaching should not be one of the most stressful jobs in the US. But it is. “The only other profession that comes close to us for stress is nursing — and we still have the numbers… by a lot. ______67______”

  “Nobody realizes how horrific working conditions are for teachers throughout the country,” Brice-Hyde says, an experienced teacher in New York who is part of the national group Badass Teachers Association (BAT).

  ______68______ So they did a national study of teacher working conditions around issues like stress, work-life balance, respect, and more. The results are both surprising — and not. If you’ve been seeing the stories about teacher walkouts and pay inequality, you probably aren’t all that shocked to see these things like: 61 percent of educators find work “always” or “often” stressful; 27 percent of educators said they’ve been threatened or bullied; 86 percent of educators feel disrespected by US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

  Teachers are stressed out, and turnover is high. No wonder we’re seeing more stories about the importance of self-care, classroom burnout, and mental health days for teachers. Yet, self-care doesn’t seem to come easily for people, and this is definitely true for teachers. ______69______

  We think it’s time to change that, though. So in honor of World Mental Health Day, we are working to change the dialogue about teacher mental health. Below are some of the top challenges people give for not seeking therapy, or even basic self-care, along with possible solutions and workarounds for each one.

  We hope you share this article widely, giving support and love to your fellow educators. ______70______ And it’s pretty much guaranteed to help you do what you set out to in the first place — be a good teacher.

  IV. Summary Writing

  Directions: Read the following passage. Summarize the main idea and the main point(s) of the passage in no more than 60 words. Use your own words as far as possible.

  Online Pharmacy (药店): A Foreseeable Trend

  Online pharmacies may replace corner drugstores in the future, which would be of benefit to all of us. Sadly, current Federal Drug Administration (FDA) restrictions prevent many Americans from gaining access to the medicines they require online. Fortunately, online pharmacies offer these drugs and provide patients with more treatment options at lower prices. Those calling for the restrictions are wrong. Online pharmacies are crucial to numerous people.

  While some drugs sold online aren’t FDA-approved, customers shouldn’t be prevented from buying them. Many of the herbal remedy (草药) online pharmacies offer have been used for hundreds of years, especially in Asian countries, and they have strong safety records. Other medicines may come from foreign countries, but they aren’t harming the people who use them in their own countries. Take depression pills as an example. It has been used safely for many years in France and other European countries, yet it’s just now being tested in the U.S.

  Nowadays, just getting in to see a doctor seems to take forever, not to mention the time and money to get tests done and await the results. Thanks to the Internet, customers now know more about available medicines than ever before and are therefore able to take them without having to consult a doctor. The Internet, after all, is filled with information about all kinds of drugs. Much of it has even been written by doctors and pharmaceutical companies themselves.

  Another issue to consider is money. Health care costs in America are rising every year, and pharmaceutical companies are making billions. Online pharmacies typically sell their drugs at lower prices than hospital pharmacies and corner drugstores. Consumers shouldn’t be blamed for seeking cheaper alternatives and refusing to line the pockets of already wealthy companies and stores.

  V. Translation

  Directions: Translate the following sentences into English, using the words given in the brackets.

  72. 这场因无视规则引发的事故值得我们深思。(ignore)

  73. 梦想还是要有的,但不努力就不可能实现。(unless)

  75. 当前有一个非常令人费解的现象:一些年轻父母们宁愿把很多钱投资在早教上,也不愿意带娃旅行开阔眼界。(would rather)

  Section B

  Directions: In Section B, you will hear two passages and a longer conversation, and you will be asked several questions on each of the passages and the conversation. The passages and the conversation will be read twice, but the question will be spoken only once. When you hear a question, read the four possible answers on your paper and decide which one is the best answer to the question you have heard.

  Question 11 through 13 are based on the following lecture.

  Good morning, class. Before we begin today, I would like to address an issue that one of you reminded me of after the last lecture. As you may recall, last time I mentioned that Christopher Columbus was the first one to bring cocoa beans to Europe after the first European explorations in the New World. What I neglected to mention was the Spanish explorer Hernando Cortez. He was actually the first person to turn cocoa beans into something commercially important.

  When adventuring in Mexico, he and his men were introduced to the emperor of one group and were offered grand gold cups of the emperor’s royal drink, chocolate. To adjust the drink for European tastes, Cortez and others decided to sweeten it with sugar. When they took this sweetened chocolate back to Spain, the drink became popular, especially when combined with several other newly discovered spices. Eventually, people began to serve chocolate as a hot drink. Later, people began to use the traditional methods to make chocolate. In the 1870s, in Switzerland, Daniel Peter found a way to add milk to chocolate, creating the product we enjoy today known as milk chocolate.

  OK, today we’re going to talk about the first maps of the Americas.

  Questions:

  11. What class are they having?

  12. Who first helped the commercialization of cocoa beans according to the lecture?

  13. What is the lecture mainly about?

  Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage.

  Many people used to recognize Eddie Redmayne for his small brown spots on the face. But now, they talk about him as a successful actor.

  Eddie was born in London, England in 1982. He went to Eton College, a popular boarding school also attended by Prince William and Prince Harry. For university, he studies art history at Cambridge.

  W: Welcome to tonight’s Legendary Lives. I’m Shirley Morgan. Tonight we are quite honored to invite David Hopkins, a well-known chef with 30 years of cooking experience. Last year, his new book “Secrets in the Kitchen” got on the New York Times bestseller list for six months. Welcome to our program, David.

  M:Hello, Shirley. It’s a pleasure to be here.

  W:David, I can’t wait to see you uncover the formulas for dishes, exploring the hows and whys of cooking. Before that, may I ask you a question? What’s the difference between a chef and a cook?

  M: I think cooks generally work at entry-level jobs. They work at different places in the kitchen and follow recipes. In contrast, chefs have special training and understand better which food goes well together, so they can invent new recipes.

  W: I see. A chef is a cook who has completed a professional course while a cook is a basically any person who cooks food. By the way, how do you become a chef?

  M: I am trained. 95% is about professional training and the other 5% is about talent.

  W: Would you mind describing us a day of a chef? We are so curious about that.

  M: Nothing special. I generally go to work two hours before service starts. The night before, I have written the lists of all the things we need to prepare the next day. I work in different roles depending on what is needed.

  W: Challenging. How long do you work every day?

  M: 10 to 12 hours a day.

  W: An almost full-time job. Do you have any tips for average cooks like me?

  M: Cooking involves your passion and creativity. Kitchen is never a place to chop vegetables and have a quick breakfast. It is good to make food that people really enjoy.

  W: I can’t agree with you more. Miracles happen in the kitchen. Thanks for joining us, David.

  M: My pleasure.

  Section A (15分)

  Directions: For each blank in the following passage there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context.

  Words to Turn a Conversation Around

  It’s not what you say, but it’s how you say it – isn’t it? According to a language expert, we may have this wrong. “We are pushed and pulled around by language far more than we (41)________,” says Elizabeth Stoke, professor of social interaction at Loughborough University. Stoke and her colleagues have (42)________ thousands of hours of recorded conversations, from customer services to mediation(调解) hotlines and police crisis (43)________. They discovered that certain words or phrases have the power to change the course of a conversation.

  Some of these words are surprising, and (44)________ what we’ve been taught to believe. For example, in a study of conversations between doctors and patients, evidence showed that doctors who (45)________ options rather than recommended best solutions, got a better response, despite the suggestion from hospital guidelines to talk about the best interests of the patient. But, from conversation experts such as Stoke to FBI negotiators and communication coaches, we’re learning which words are likely to (46)________ or persuade us.

  Stoke found that people who had already responded (47)________ when asked if they would like to attend mediation seemed to change their minds when the mediator used the phrase. “Would you be willing to come for a meeting?” “As soon as the word ‘willing’ was used, people would say: ‘Oh, yes, definitely’—they would actually (48)________ the sentence to agree.” Stoke found it had the same effect in different settings: with business-to-business cold callers; with doctors trying to (49)________ people to go to a weight-loss class. She also looked at phrases such as “Would you like to” and “Would you be interested in”. “Sometimes they (50) ________, but ‘willing’ was the one that got people to agree more rapidly and with more enthusiasm.”

  “’Hello’ is a really important word that can change the (51)________ of a conversation,” Stoke says. “It’s about how you respond to people who are what we call ‘first movers’ – people who say something really (52)________,” “It might be the work colleagues who are extremely angry to your desk with a complaint or the neighbor who (53)________ rude words about parking as you’re putting out the bins.” “What do you do with that person? Rather than respond in the same manner, saying something nice, such as a very bright ‘Hello!’, socializes that other person a little bit.” Use it when you want to resist getting into a (54)________. “You have to be careful not to sound too passive-aggressive,” Stoke says, “but just one friendly word in a bright tone can delete the (55)________ of the conversation.”

  Section B (22分)

  Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.

  (A)

  Last summer, bird-watchers confirmed the discovery of a new species of bird in Cambodia was not an event of particular biological significance, but it was striking for one reason in part. This species of bird was discovered not in an unspoiled rain forest but within the limits Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh – a city the size of Philadelphia.

  What the researchers found was surprising in cities. The medium-sized city in the state about 110 species of birds, over 95 percent of which would have been growing there urbanization. Ecologically speaking, cities are different, concrete buildings. Rather, each unique bio-profile – a kind of ecological fingerprint – that is against the idea of an environment dead zone.

  Of course, it’s also true that in the world of birds and plants, as in human society, there is such a thing as worldwide—the city-inhabitants who feel equally at home in San Francisco, Milan and Beijing. Four birds occur in more than 80 percent of the cities studied, and 11 plants occurred in more than 90 percent of the cities. On the plant side, those are seemingly spread by European settlement. In the air, it’s the usual suspects: the rock pigeon and many other birds.“They have become completely adapted to urban life,”Katti says.“That’s not much of surprise. But they don’t actually dominate as much as we think they do.”Those species—occurring in the cities across the globe—represent only a small part of a city’s natural varieties.

  Not all cities are equal protectors of native animals and plants, though. One of the biggest predictors for a city’s biodiversity is its urban design. Territory as varied as backyards and street trees can lay important roles in greening a city. In fact, the amouht of green space is a stronger predictor of the density of biodiversity than a city’s size. A metropolis with a sizable network of parks can contain more species per square mile than a much smaller city.

  In a world where architecture, food, language, fashion and commerce are increasingly globalized, a city’s native animals and plants can be a kind of identity. There may be neighborhoods in London and Paris that resemble Singapore or Hong Kong. Cities are becoming similar, but their natural environments stand completely apart.

  56. According to the passage, what do you think of Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital?

  A. It is full of various rare plants and animals.

  B. Its birds’ population is larger than that of San Francisco.

  C. It’s as big as Philadelphia in terms of area.

  D. It is on an equal footing with Beijing and Milan.

  57. Which of the following statements is NOT the same as the author’s idea?

  A. From a biological point new changes happen every day.

  B. From an environmental point the daily changes aren’t obvious enough.

  C. Each city has different characteristics in terms of ecological development.

  D. Different species of creatures are born in different cities.

  58. Some plants are found in many cities in the world, which seems to be a result of ____.

  A. natural selection B. globalization

  C. urban development D. colonization

  59. Which of the following might be the best title of the passage?

  A. What Surprising Cities! The Medium-sized City Has Various Species of Birds!

  B. The Power of Plants and Animals! The Charm of All the Cities!

  C. The Cities Are Concrete Jungles! Never Think about Them the Same Way Again!

  D. More Species Per Square Mile! The Amount of Green Space Is a Stronger Predictor!

  Please Choose Cloud Services

  may be unsure, or you do not know where to begin. Trying every Cloud service would take a lot of time and work. But, the website Reviews.com might help.

  One valuable feature is the protection of digital files, including photos, videos, documents, music and more. If the worst happens and your computer crashes, or gets lost or damaged, your files can still found in the Cloud.

  Cloud services let you access your files from almost anywhere. No need to worry about a file stored on your computer when you are away from your desk. If you have an Internet connection, you can open your files from any computer, or from a phone, when they are stored using a Cloud service.

  Using a Cloud service makes sharing files easier. If you send documents to a group using emails, you may then wonder which version everyone is working with. When sharing files using a Cloud service, everyone will see the same document and the latest version.

  The first thing to consider is the amount of storage space you need. Check how much space you are currently using on your computer and mobile devices. If your computer or phone is filled with photos and you have little free space, you may want to move your photos to the Cloud. Some Cloud services are free. But, if you need a lot of space, you will probably need one that costs money.

  Even if everyone you have ever met is a Windows user, you still probably want a Cloud service that works with many platforms. You might become friends with an Android user or start a job with a company that computers on Apple!

  60. Which of the following is true according to the passage?

  A. Google-Drive users can obtain 100GB for free.

  B. Most Cloud services can send files to both the Cloud and the local computer.

  C. It’s hard to transfer your file when you turn on the computer if it is stored in the Cloud.

  D. Never worry about finding your files in the Clouds if the computer system crashes.

  61. What will you have to do if you need more space to store more files in the Cloud?

  A. To use your own Cloud services. B. To share Cloud space with others.

  C. To spend money buying space. D. To buy the latest version of the service.

  62. How can consumers find the Cloud service that suits them best?

  A. By learning more information about the space occupied by files.

  B. By comparing Cloud’s function, storage, available space and prices.

  C. By sending files to a group of people via e-mail inquiring about the Cloud service.

  D. By making friends with Android users who use Apple computers.

  (C)

  Is Paperless Office Really Paperless?

  A rising economy increased paper sales by 6 yo 7 percent each year in the early to mid-1990s, and the convenience of desktop printing allowed office workers to indulge anything and everything. In 2004, Ms Dunn, a communications supplies director, said that plain white office paper would see less than a 4 percent growth rate, a primary reason for which is that some 47 percent of the workforce entered the job market after computers had already been introduced to offices.

  For office innovators, the dream of paperless office is an example of high-tech arrogance(傲慢). Today’s office service is overwhelmed By more newspapers than ever before. After decades of development, the American government can finally get rid of the madness on paper. In the past, the demand for paper has been far ahead of growth in the American economy, but the sales have slowed markedly over the past two to three years, despite the good economic conditions.

  “Old habits are hard to break,”says Ms. Dunn.“There are some functions that paper serves where a screen display doesn’t work. Those funcitons are both its strength and its weakness.”Analysts attribute the decline to such factors as advances in digital databases and communication systems. Escaping our craving for paper, however, will be anything but an easy affair.

  “We’re finally seeing a reduction in the amount of paper being used per worker in the workplace,”says John Maine, vice president of a paper economic consulting firm.“More information is being transmitted electronically, and an increasing number of people are satisfied that information exists only in electronic form without printing multiple backups.”

  To reduce paper use, some companies are working to combine digital and paper capabilities. For example, Xerox is developing electronic paper: thin digital displays that respond to a stylus, like a pen on paper. Marks can be erased or saved digitally. Even with such technological advances, the increasing amounts of electronic data necessarily require more paper.

  “The information industry today is composed of a thin paper crust surrounding an electronic core,”Mr. Saffo wrote. The growing paper crust is most noticeable, but the hidden electronic core is far larger and growing more rapidly. The result is that we are becomign paperless, but we hardly notice at all.“That’s one of the greatest ironies of the information age,”Saffo says.“It’s just common sense that the more you talk to someone by phoen or computer, it inevitably leads to a face-to-face meeting. The best thing for the aviation industry was the Internet.”

  63. Which of the following statements is NOT a reason for the slowdown in American paper sales?

  A. Workforce with better computer skills. B. Slow growth of the U.S. economy.

  C. Changing patterns in paper use. D. Changing employment trends.

  64. What does the last sentence in Para 3 mean?

  A. We have to look at paper consumption from different angles.

  B. There is little chance that paper consumption will fall in the digital age.

  C. Paper consumption will be greatly reduced in the digital age.

  D. People are no longer so addicted to paper in the digital age.

  65. The innovations from Xerox and other companies feature ___.

  A. the intergration of digital technology with traditional paper

  B. the chance from traditional paper to digital technology

  C. the combination of the use of computer screens and cell phones

  D. a new type of computer writing and communciation

  66. What can we draw from the example of the aviation industry in the last paragraph?

  A. The dream of the paperless office will be realized some day.

  B. People usually prefer to have face-to-face meetings instead of using computers.

  C. More digital data use leads to greater paper use in the digital time.

  D. Some people are no longer opposed to video-conferencing.

  Section C

  Directions:Read the passage carefully. Fill in each blank with a proper sentence given in the box. Each sentence can be used only once. Note that there are two more sentences than you need.

  A. There are five reason for the accident and you are guilty.

  B. Every year thousands of people are horribly killed, and we sit still and let it happen.

  C. Surprisingly, society should smile at the driver and forgive him.

  D. Someone has rightly said that when a person is sitting behind the steering wheel, his car becomes an extension of his personality.

  E. All advertisements that emphasize power and performance should be banned.

  F. It is time to develop a universal norm to reduce this senseless waste of human life.

  Traffic Regulation and Accident Prevention

  We live in a remarkable time, and many of the once fatal diseases can now be cured with modern medicine and surgery. It is almost certain that one day a cure will be found for the rest of the diseases. Expectations of life have greatly increased. But though the possibility of living a long and happy life is greater than ever before, every day we witness the incredible killing of men, women and children on the roads. Man fights against the motor-car. It is a never-ending battle which man is losing. ___67___

  Nothing can seriously increase your risk of potentially fatal car accidents other than speeding and failing to pay due attention to weather conditions. ___68___ There is no doubt that the motor-car often brings out a man’s very worst qualities. Usually quiet and pleasant people, when they are behind the steering wheel, will become unrecognizable. They are impolite, aggressive, self-willed like two-year-old, completely selfish. All their hidden frustrations, disappointments, and jealousy seem to be caused by driving.

  ___69___ It’s all for his own convenience. Due to a serious tragedy, the city is almost uninhabitable and the huge parking lot makes the town ugly. The destruction of rural areas and the annual mass killings are just a statistic, easily forgotten. With regard to driving, the laws of some countries are not strict and even the strictest are not strict enough.

  Traffic rules are for everyone to follow under any circumstances, and no one can make an exception unless you make a joke of your own life. Universally accepted standards can only have a significant beneficial on the incidence of accidents. Governments should develop safety codes for manufacturers. ___70___ These measures may sound cruel. However, if these measures result in a reduction in the loss of life every year, they should certainly not be considered serious. After all, the world belongs to humans, not cars.

  Ⅳ. Summary Writing.

  Directions:Read the following passage. Summarize the main idea and the main point(s) of the passage in no more than 60 words. Use your own words as far as possible.

  All Must Have Degrees

  In a classroom in Seoul a group of teenagers sit over their desks in total silence. Study begins at eight in the morning and ends at half past four in the afternoon. And some even go back home at midnight. Like thousands of South Koreans, they are preparing for the important exam, which will largely determine whether they go to a good university or not. Degrees have become useful. Seventy percent of students who graduate from the country’s secondary schools now go straight to universities.

  Many more countries have seen a big rise in the share of young people with degrees, but South Korea is an extreme case. As technological reforms require workers to do many difficult and demanding jobs that they would not have done before, there seems to be reasonable to insist that more workers receive a good education than before. And a degree is an obvious way for bright youngsters From poor families to prove their abilities. People tend to earn more if they have degrees.

  Employers do not have to pay for higher education and they are increasingly able to demand degrees to screen out the least motivated or capable. A recent study by Joseph Fuller and Manjari Romaan of Harvard Business School shows that companies routinely require applicants to have degrees, even though only a minority of those already working in the role have them.

  The Economist’s analysis found that between 1970 and 2015, the proportion of 256 workers aged 25-64 with at least a bachelor’s degree increased. Some of them are highly intellectually demanding jobs, such as aviation engineers. Others are non-graduate jobs such as waiting tables. Sixteen percent of waiters now have degrees, because probably in most cases they could not find jobs and live poorly. Today, having a degree is usually an entry requirement.

  Company Names That Have Secret Meanings

  Co­founder Larry Page was at a brainstorming session at Stanford for a new massive data indexing website. Someone suggested “googolplex”—one of the largest describable numbers. Page shortened it to “googol”. When he later checked for the availability of the domain name, he made a mistake and typed in “google” instead. But he liked the name and registered it for himself and co­founder Sergey Brin.

  This luxury car maker combined elements from the Ford and Oldsmobile companies when it was started in 1902 and later became known for its innovation and high quality. The company was named for the French explorer Antoine Laumet de la Mothe Cadillac, who founded the city of Detroit in 1701.

  Company co­founder Gordon Bowker has said that while brainstorming names, someone brought out a map that featured the old mining town of Starbo. That may have led him to think of Starbuck, the first mate in Herman Melville's famous novel, Moby Dick. Not only the company name but also the origin of its logo has aroused great curiosity.

  The inventor of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, was looking to make an elegant, yet precise, wristwatch. He wanted a name that was easy to say, worked in different languages, and looked good on the watches. He settled on Rolex in 1908.

  (  )56. Which company name has a close relationship with literature?

  A. Google. B. Cadillac. C. Starbucks. D. Rolex.

  (  )57. Which of the following statements is True?

  A. Google was adopted because “googol” was not available then.

  B. Cadillac was named after the founding father of the company.

  C. Starbucks was used due to the co­founder's love for his town.

  D. Hans Wilsdorf intended Rolex to be universally accepted.

  B

  If you could travel back in time five centuries, you'd encounter a freshly painted “Mona Lisa” in Renaissance Europe and cooler temperatures across the Northern Hemisphere. This was a world in the midst of the Little Ice Age and a period of vast European exploration now known as the Age of Discovery.

  But what if we could look 500 years into the future and glimpse the Earth of the 26th century? Would the world seem as different to us as the 21st century would have seemed to residents of the 16th century? For starters, what will the weather be like?

  Depending on whom you ask, the 26th century will either be a little chilly or extremely hot. Some solar output models suggest that by the 2500s, Earth's climate will have cooled back down to near Little Ice Age conditions. Other studies predict that ongoing climate change and fossil fuel use will leave much of the planet too hot for human life by 2300. Some experts date the beginning of human climate change back to the Industrial Revolution in the 1800s, others to slash­and­burn agricultural practices in prehistoric times. Either way, tool­wielding humans alter their environment—and our 26th century tools might be quite impressive indeed.

  Theoretical physicist and futurist Michio Kaku predicts that in a mere 100 years, humanity will make the leap from a type zero civilization to a type I civilization on the Kardashev Scale. In other words, we'll become a species that can use the entire sum of a planet's energy, mastering clean energy technologies such as fusion and solar power. Furthermore, they'll be able to handle planetary energy in order to control global climate.

  Technology has improved significantly since the 1500s, and this pace will likely continue in the centuries to come. Physicist Stephen Hawking proposes that by the year 2600, this growth would see 10 new theoretical physics papers published every 10 seconds. If Moore's Law holds true and both computer speed and complexity double every 18 months, then some of these studies may be the work of highly intelligent machines.

  What other technologies will shape the world of the 26th century? Futurist and author Adrian Berry believes the average human life span will reach 140 years and that the digital storage of human personalities will enable a computerized state of living forever. Humans will farm the oceans, travel in starships and reside in both lunar and Martian colonies while robots explore the outer cosmos.

  (  )58. Why does the author mention the Little Ice Age in the first paragraph?

  A. To show the severity of the current global warming.

  B. To stress the close connection with the current climate.

  C. To provide contrast to the prediction of future climate.

  D. To illustrate the importance of protecting the environment.

  (  )59. The prediction that Earth will cool down is based on ________.

  A. changes in solar activity B. ongoing climate change

  C. previous general assumptions D. current consumption of fossil fuel

  (  )60. What effect will the 26th century technologies have on human beings?

  A. Humans will suffer from severe global warming.

  B. Cyber technology helps human personalities survive.

  C. Humans needn't work with the application of robots.

  D. Highly intelligent machines will replace humans.

  How would you describe your style? Formal? Classical? Casual? Smart? First of all, what is style? Let's hear a few words of wisdom from the wise. “Style is knowing who you are and what you want to say,” (Gore Vidal); “Style is an expression of individualism mixed with charm,” (John Fairchild); “Style is the perfection of a point of view,” (Robert Eberhart); “Style is a simple way of saying complicated things,” (Jean Cocteau); “Style is the dress of thoughts,” (Lord Chesterfield).

  So, now you know what style is, you'll need to buy some clothes. But where? In the UK, you can get really cheap, stylish, second­hand clothes at charity shops. They're great if you want exclusive labels but don't want to pay the price. The only difficulty is discovering where the really good bargains are. But don't worry, Leila Gray can help you here. She's the proud owner of a vintage Hardy Amies coat, picked up at a charity shop for £20—a good deal when you realize it cost more than £800 new. “You have to go to the richer areas of a city,” she says. “That's where all the labels are. It can take a bit of hunting around, but that is half the fun, and there's a lot of buried treasure just waiting to be discovered.”

  So, now you know where to buy your new, stylish clothes, how do you acquire your style? Experts say that mixing and matching from charity shops can help you find your own style—something that's really you. That's what Scottish musician Momus did. “My fashion tip is this,” he says, “look at yourself with the eye of a graphic designer. If you can't be attractive, aim for ‘interesting’ or ‘original’.” Momus' unique style could even make him happier, too. As psychologist Marilyn Elias explains, the happiest people “judge themselves by their own yardsticks, never against what others do or have”.

  Shoichi Aoki, the founder of Japanese street style magazine FRUiTS, agrees. “I think real fashion is what people wear on the streets, the clothes that they wear, the way that they wear them,” he says. “What you see in fashion magazines and on models has been styled and it's more commercial.” He says that his inspiration for FRUiTS came from people combining traditional Japanese clothing such as the kimono and “geta”(Japanese wooden clogs) with Western fashion. “This really caught my eye,” Aoki adds. These styles may seem wild, but Aoki's idea is not: be bold, be creative and find something that suits you.

  Maybe it's time to create your own look. There are many online guides to help you. Perhaps the best advice comes from a website called wikiHow, “If you see something you like,” it says, “feel free to copy, but don't make yourself a clone … mix it up and make it yours.” Think about it!

  (  )61. What should you first do to choose the style that best suits you?

  A. Follow the images of the wise people. B. Go for whatever is fashionable.

  C. Simplify complicated expressions. D. Figure out what a true style is.

  (  )62. What does the underlined word “that” in Paragraph 2 refer to?

  A. Getting clothes of leading brands. B. Buying clothes at rather low prices.

  C. Searching for really good bargains. D. Starting a charity shop selling clothes.

  (  )63. What is the focus of Shoichi Aoki and his magazine FRUiTS?

  A. Commercialization of fashion magazines.

  B. Expression of something personal and creative.

  C. Designing fashionable wear for men in the street.

  D. Promoting Japanese traditional clothing worldwide.

  (  )64. What is probably the best title for the passage?

  A. How to find the style that suits you B. Where to pick up a bargain

  C. What to wear to develop your style D. Whom to model to be popular

  J. K. Rowlmg is the author of the most successful book series in history, but her attempt to take on a new career as a screenwriter hasn't been as smooth as she may have thought it would be. The sequel(续篇), “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”, shows that even the most successful author in the world is in need of checks and balances when making the transition to cinema.

  Following the sale of half a billion copies of the Harry Potter series, Rowling is working hard to extend and enrich the mythology she created around the child wizard. In contrast to the eight Harry Potter movies, which were based on the seven books and most of which were written by experienced screenwriter Steve Kloves, the “Fantastic Beasts” series is scripted only by Rowling. This time she skipped the bookstores and went straight to the movie theater.

  The “Fantastic Beasts” series takes its title from one of Harry Potter's textbooks. The leap backward in time, a new set of adult heroes and a globe­spanning background show that Rowling is in tune with her fans and the spirit of the times. Harry Potter and his friends started out as a typical product of 1990s naivety, but since then the loyal veteran audience has experienced the shocks of the 21st century and grown mature and discouraged. The “Fantastic Beasts” series feel less like children's fare; they deal with adults and frightening events that occurred in Europe at the end of the 1920s.

  It's 1927, and the criminal Grindelwald has escaped from prison to Europe. The hero, Newt Scamander, a zoologist of fantastic beasts, prefers to distance himself from politics and maintain his improvised nature reserve in London. But the young Prof. Dumbledore reminds him that neutrality is not an option in hard times. Dumbledore urges him to cross the Channel to Paris and stop Grindelwald, who is trying to plot a war to ensure the purity of the wizard race.

  The rough outline of the plot constitutes only part of the movie. There are many other characters who appear in the mystery. I will mention the boy Credence who continues to have a central role in the struggle between the hero and the villain, even as his background remains a mystery. Similarly, Newt's brother and partner, the snake­woman Nagini, and other new and old characters hint at an obscure past and future. Rowling populates her world with characters large and small, odd beasts and simplifies its story to lay the foundation work of the universe. The film lays strong foundations of mystery, but forgets to build any sort of structure above them. It's like a construction site where the budget ran out too fast.

  With movie screens full of superheroes and fantasy films, and every studio trying to float a fictional universe, Rowling is today's most creative builder of cinema worlds, but there's still a difference between her and a mega­corporation like Disney. Every character and beast is there because Rowling said so, not because the marketing division thought it would promote sales of merchandise. Rowling clearly has a true passion to create a mythology, and just as clearly, she hasn't yet finished creating it.

  The “Fantastic Beasts” series offers a world even fuller than that of Harry Potter. Once more she collaborates with David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies and now the two “Fantastic Beasts” pictures. Still, the world she's created would be even more wondrous if Rowling had only filled it out with a crystallized or at least coherent plot. In the Harry Potter series, she mostly succeeded in making the films into independent works. But without experienced screenwriters to mediate between her imagination and the screen, the two “Fantastic Beasts” episodes are more like a chess game in which the creator moves characters from A to B as part of a broader strategy—which remains unclear.

  “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is a film made for existing fans and doesn't bother to appeal to a new audience. Not by chance does it offer a more mature world for fans who have grown up at least as much as Daniel Radcliffe. For them, the movie delivers the goods, but little of the magic remains. If Rowling continues to put out films without a beginning and an end, her world will collapse, leaving only the middle. It may be entertainment with captivating characters and effects, but it's not a mowe.

  (  )65. What change has J. K. Rowling made in her writing career?

  A. She was forced to abandon her original writing career and start a new one.

  B. She was determined to skip the bookstores and publish books on her own.

  C. She started a new fantasy book having nothing to do with the Harry Potter series.

  D. She tried to enrich the Harry Potter series as a screenwriter rather than a novelist.

  (  )66. Who are probably the target audience of the “Fantastic Beasts” series?

  A. Kids newly introduced to magic. B. Teenage students with grand dreams.

  C. Adults going through life changes. D. Professional critics of fantasy books.

  (  )67. What are the features of the “Fantastic Beasts” series?

  A. Complex story and exciting characters. B. Simple story but abundant characters.

  C. Childish story and strange characters. D. Sad story but inspiring characters.

  (  )68. Big corporations like Disney choose movie characters and beasts based on ________.

  A. potential profitability of the movies B. preference of their screenwriters

  C. consultation with the original author D. investigation into successful films

  (  )69. How does the author explain Rowling's failure to create a clear plot?

  A. By describing shooting processes. B. By listing official statistics.

  C. By drawing a comparison. D. By citing examples.

  (  )70. What does the author think of J.K. Rowling's performance as a screenwriter?

  A. It is really a disappointment for movie goers.

  B. It is widely acknowledged by her book fans.

  C. There exits much more magic in her screenplay.

  D. There is still much room for improvement.

  第四部分 任务型阅读(共10小题;每小题1分,满分10分)

  请认真阅读下列短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。

  注意:每个空格只填1个单词。

  As the concept of emotional intelligence (EI) has gone global, we've watched professionals fail as they try to improve their emotional intelligence because they either don't know where to focus their efforts or they haven't understood how to improve these skills on a practical level. In our work consulting with companies and coaching leaders, we have found that if you're looking to develop particular EI strengths, it helps to consider areas for improvement others have identified along with the goals you want to achieve—and then to actively build habits in those areas rather than simply relying on understanding them conceptually.

  The first step is to get a sense of how your self­perception (how you see yourself) differs from your reputation (how others see you).

  This is especially true for the development of emotional intelligence because we can be blind to how we express and read the emotional components of our interactions. For example, most of us think that we're good listeners, but very often that's really not the case. Without this external reality check, it will be difficult for you to identify the ways that your actions affect your performance. Getting feedback from others can also provide proof of the necessity of shifting our behavior and motivation to do so.

  To give you the best sense of where the differences lie between your self­perception and reputation, you should use a 360­degree feedback assessment that takes into account the multiple facets of EI. The key is to find one that guarantees confidentiality to those giving you feedback and that is focused on development and not on performance assessment.

  Secondly, when you get your feedback from an assessment, let that inform what you want to improve. But also consider what your goals are. When it comes to cultivating strengths in emotional intelligence, you're at a huge disadvantage if you're only interested because others said you should be. Your emotional intelligence is so tied up in your sense of self that being intrinsically(内在地) motivated to make the effort matters more when changing longstanding habits than it does when simply learning a skill.

  That means the areas that you choose to actively work on should lie at the intersection of the feedback you've gotten and the areas that are most important to your own aspirations(渴望). Understanding the impacts of your current El habits relative to your goals will keep you going over the long haul as you do the work of strengthening your emotional intelligence.

  Once you've determined which EI skills you want to focus on, identify specific actions that you'll take. lf you're working on becoming a better listener, for example, you might decide that when you're conversing with someone you'll take the time to pause, listen to what they have to say, and check that you understand before you reply. Keep it specific. You should also take every naturally occurring opportunity to practice the skill you're developing, no matter how small.

  By starting to change your routine reactions, you'll be well on your way to figuring out the old habits that aren't serving you well and transforming them into new, improved ones that do.

  Sports classes are very important to students' health and overall well­being. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that over the past three years obesity in children and adolescents has doubled because of diet and lack of activity.

  A recent survey by the China Youth Daily showed that 64.7 percent of the 2,003 respondents found sports classes in middle schools unsatisfactory.

  The government has begun to address the problem. According to a guideline on high school entrance exam reform released by the Ministry of Education in 2016, scores of physical education will be considered in enrollment for senior high schools.

  81. One possible version:

  Critical as sports classes are to students, approximately two thirds of the respondents of a recent survey are dissatisfied with them. Luckily, some measures have been taken to address them.

  The reasons behind this are various. To begin with, schools and even some parents are indifferent to sports classes, which makes it possible for other classes to occupy sports classes. Besides, students are burdened with great academic stress, leaving them inadequate time for sports. Furthermore, imperfect sports facilities also lead to students' low level of participation.

  Something must be done to improve the situation. First of all, the government should allocate funds to improve facilities for sports. Also, schools are expected to ease the academic burden on students and allow them to have more time to rest and develop their interest in sports. Meanwhile, professional sports teachers are supposed to be employed to ensure that students have adequate sports classes.

  M: I'm afraid you can't leave your car there, Miss.

  W: But I shall only be a few minutes. My friend is coming here soon.

  M: Please look at the sign “No parking”. You can park in the next street. It's usually quiet there.

  Text 2

  W: Hi, Steve. Did you check the weather for this week?

  M: Hi, Laura. Yes, I did. Everything will be fine tomorrow. But it looks like it will rain this weekend. At least it's not going to snow for another month.

  Text 3

  W: I need to take a science course this year, but I don't know if I should take biology, chemistry, or physics.

  M: Well, you've always loved animals. Chemistry sounds fun because you get to mix things together, but I think biology is more your style.

  Text 4

  W: Did you take out the rubbish, dear?

  M: No, I'll do it in one second. Let me just finish this chapter.

  W: OK. Afterwards, we can have some dessert.

  Text 5

  W: Tim, would you come to my birthday party on Saturday?

  M: Sure, Mary. Who else is invited?

  W: Everyone in our office is invited.

  Text 6

  W: What a funny­looking painting!

  M: What's so funny about it?

  W: Well, everything is upside down.

  M: Let me ask you something: how much would you pay for something like that if you saw it in an art gallery?

  W: I don't know.

  M: Do you know how much I paid for it?

  W: No … probably too much, though.

  M: Nothing! I found it in the wastepaper basket at the hospital and brought it home. It was free!

  W: Oh … what a strange thing to do, Boris!

  Text 7

  W: Ben, come here. I'm having trouble picking out a dress for tonight. How about this silver one?

  M: I don't think you need to wear something that fancy.

  W: You're right. It's not that comfortable, and we're going to be dancing a lot in the concert.

  M: Why don't we go to the mall and get you something? It's your birthday next week.

  W: I have enough clothes. Here, look! This is black, so it matches my shoes.

  M: There are three long tears down the back. It looks like you got attacked by a tiger.

  W: That's the style. Besides, I'm not going to be the only one with holes in my clothing there. I'll fit right in.

  M: You make a good point.

  Text 8

  W: Hey, Martin. I just did some running in the park. What are you doing?

  M: There was a windstorm last night, so it blew this mess everywhere. What's up?

  W: I just wanted to see if you'd like to see the latest movie with me tonight. Why do you have to do this kind of work?

  M: My father and I have a deal. I help around the house, and he pays me. Once I get these leaves into bags, I have to cut the grass. Tomorrow I will water the flowers in the garden.

  W: How long have you had this arrangement?

  M: Since I became a teenager. I help him fix his motorcycle, too.

  W: Is there something in particular you are saving for? A new car?

  M: I can't afford anything too expensive, but my parents said they would pay for half the cost of a laptop. My father wants me to know the meaning of “no pains, no gains”.

  W: That's cool. So should I come back later?

  M: Yeah. Let me finish my responsibilities first, and then I'll call you.

  Text 9

  M: Sally, can I talk to you about the class project?

  W: Sure. Have you decided on a topic yet? I'm going to give a report on the effects of global warming.

  M: That sounds interesting, but I want to talk about my family. You know how funny everyone in my family is …

  W: Yes, that's true. Last time I came over to watch basketball, my stomach hurt from laughing so much. Everyone in your family is happy. Anyway, the teacher said we could give a presentation on any topic, as long as we give background information and state why the topic is important to us.

  M: Yeah, I remember that. Well, I want to talk about my family mostly because it is so big. Do you know anyone else with seven brothers and sisters?

  W: I really do not.

  M: I think I could give an entertaining, short description of each of my three brothers and four sisters. Maybe I could talk about my grandfather and grandmother, too. They live with us now.

  W: They do? So, how many people live in your house? I don't remember the house being very large. Where does everyone fit?

  M: Ha­ha! There are twelve people in my family. And we have five bedrooms, so it's not that crowded.

  W: That's crazy. Sounds like some sort of reality TV show!

  Text 10

  I usually set my alarm one hour before I start work, but today it started ringing at 9:00. I was already an hour late for work! I rushed into the kitchen and turned on the coffee maker, and hit my big toe on a chair. Then I went back to my room and looked in my closet. I had no clean clothes for work, so I put on my shirt and pants from the day before. At least my tie was washed. Next, I had to comb my hair and brush my teeth. But in my hurry, I knocked my toothbrush in the toilet! I looked in the mirror and made a decision: Think positive, and focus on the rest of the day. And you know what? I had a productive day at work, and finished everything I needed to do early in the day. During lunch, I noticed my colleague Karen looked sad. When I asked her what was wrong, she said she was having a bad day. She was worried that she would have to stay late, and would miss her daughter's school play. I told her my story and she laughed. Then I helped her finish her work so she could leave on time. She hugged me and thanked me, and it made me feel good. Looking back, I think it was a great day!
