My parents always told me that I couldn’t dance, because it was a girl’s sport. But I never gave up my dream of becoming a dancing star. I practiced 31 , learning from books, movies and shows. However, without my parents’ support (支持), that 32 seemed all but impossible to reach.

“You can be a good dancer!” I 35 her. “Let’s show those people that they have been wrong all along.”
In the following months, we practiced every evening, 36 from my parents. I was having a fantastic time and soon Mary improved a lot.

crowd, I was sure we had been successful.
My heart was 39 wildly when I saw my father coming towards me. He put his hand on my shoulder. “Well done, son. Though it is hard for me to admit (承认) it, I have to say you are born to 40 . Go for it and make us proud.”

A Missed Party
My name is Jenny. I work as a doctor in a children’s hospital. I must share a heartwarming experience I enjoyed last week.
Last Friday there was a big party at the hospital. Most of the doctors and nurses would be there, but of course some of us had to stay to look after the children. I felt a little sad because I was not free to go to the party. I enjoyed dancing very much. While my friends were getting ready to go to the party, I felt very sorry for myself.
At ten o’clock, I went to see each child one after another and said good night to them. Then I came to a little boy called Tommy. Tommy was only 11 years old, but he
already talked like an adult(成年人). Poor Tommy was badly ill. In fact, he was
getting weaker day by day. However, he was always thinking about others. We all liked the little boy very much.
When I came up to his bed, I noticed a piece of cake at the table beside his bed. When I was thinking why the cake was there, he said, “I’m very sorry that you have to miss the party because you have to take care of us. But we’re going to have a party for you. Have you seen the cake? I saved it from my supper today, so it’s quite special.” I thanked him. “And I’d dance with you myself if I was able to get up.” he added. His words warmed my heart.
Suddenly the hospital party seemed very far away and not at all important to me.
45. Where does Jenny work?
A. In a hospital. B. In a school. C. In an office. D. In a company.
46. How did Jenny feel when she had to miss the party?
A. Happy. B. Lucky. C. Sad. D. Hopeless.
47. . How old was Tommy in the story?
A. 9. B. 11. C. 13. D. 15.
48. What did Jenny see at the table beside Tommy’s bed?
A. A piece of bread. B. A piece of cake.
C. A piece of cheese. D. A piece of chocolate.
My Job Choice
Making a good job choice is almost as good as a choosing a good life. So, choosing a job is one of the most important decisions to make in life.
For my job, there are three important things that I will consider:
The first one is that I must work in an area I like. And I think it is most important to me. Someone once said, “If you find a job that you enjoy, then you won’t have to work another day.” I would like to become more creative through my work. I would also like to be the most valuable member there. All this is possible only if I like what I do.
The second one is that the area of my work must lead me to solve some new and hard problems. I would like to stay in the same area for a long time. In order for this to happen, the work must provide enough problems. More than just working to live, I enjoy making a difference and trying my best to make progress. I would also like to be well remunerated for my hard work, so I can lead a comfortable life with this hard-won money. Then I can provide the best for my family.
The third important thing is that I would like to work in an area that would help other people. The work in my mind is in fields such as the army(军队), training or
management. In such areas, I can help to develop the abilities of others and bring out the best. It would be a most satisfying job to help young people to become the best that they can. When I become old, I would like to look back with a great sense of satisfaction that thousands of people have become better persons through my work.
I accept the idea that no one should make a choice of a job suddenly and quickly.
He should decide what he wants to be in the long run. Then, he should decide how he works towards it. He should study the proper courses, read the books and speak to knowledgeable persons in that field before making a job choice. A good choice will most probably lead to a better life.
49. . How many important things will the writer think about when he chooses a job? A. 4. B. 3. C. 2. D. 1.
50. The writer considers an enjoyable job most important because .
A. he will have to work hard B. he has to bring out his best
C. it can make him more creative D. it is possible for him to live better
51. The underlined word “remunerated” in the passage means .
A. trained B. known C. accepted D. paid
52. The writer wants to tell us that everyone should .
A. live a comfortable life with his family
B. join the army to become a better person
C. make preparations to find a satisfying job
D. help young people to choose an interesting job
A New Invention----An Electric Fork
Do you know electricity can change the way we taste food? Don’t feel surprised at the fact. A special electric fork invented by Japanese researchers could make any dish taste salty.
According to Hiromi Nakamura, a Post Doctor Researcher at Meiji University of Japan, the technology can be very useful for people with special eating habits. For example, the sick with high blood pressure(高血压) can easily develop a low-salt eating habit and still enjoy delicious food. And with the fork, there’s totally no risk of over-salting their food. Luckily, the voltage(电压) is so small that it is safe to use the fork.
The idea of adding electricity to food was first shown to public as an experiment at the Computer Human Interaction Conference in Austin, Texas, in 2012. Nakamura and her team connected a wire(导线) to a 9-volt battery(电池) and passed it through a straw( 吸管) placed in a cup of sweet lemonade. Volunteers reported that the lemonade tasted not as sweet as it usually was, because the electricity created the taste of salt.
Nakamura has improved the technology to be able to make the electricity reach the food through forks and chopsticks. “The metallic part of the fork is one electrode(电极), and the handle is the other,” Nakamura explained. “When you take a piece of food with the fork and put it in your mouth, you connect the circuit. When you take the fork out of your mouth, you disconnect the circuit. So it actually works as a switch.”
Simon Klose, TV presenter of food program Munchies, who recently visited Nakamura to try out the fork himself, then said it was one of the greatest eating experiences he’d ever had. “When I first heard of electric food, it sounded terrible.” he said. He later continued to use the fork to eat pieces of fried chicken, and found that the saltiness greatly increased as the electricity was connected.
Nakamura has been eating “electric” food for the past three to four years in order to understand it better. “For me,” she said, “it may seem like we’re cooking but we’re actually working on the human taste.”
53. The electric fork may be good for people who .
A. need to lose weight B. show interest in physics
C. work as researchers D. have high blood pressure
54. Paragraph 4 mainly tells us .
A. how the electric fork works
B. what creates the taste of salt
C. where the electric fork was invented
D. when the technology was known to public
55. What can we learn from the passage?
A. The electric fork can create unreal taste.
B. A researcher from England invented the electric fork.
C. People can use the electric fork by pushing the switch.
D. The idea of adding electricity to food was first shown in a TV program.

What Can Bring People Luck?
Nick and his friends were talking about things that can bring them luck.
“I have a lucky red pen,” said Andy. “I have a lucky coin,” said Peter. “Every time I take a test, 56 .” Nick thought for a moment, and said, “My blue socks.” “Blue socks?” the boys were surprised and asked together. Nick said that every time he wore his blue socks to school before a test, he got a good mark.
The next day Nick had a Chinese test. He was sad because he couldn’t find his blue socks. “Mom!” shouted Nick. “ 57 ? I have a Chinese test today, and I need to wear them.”
“Don’t be silly!” Nick’s mom said. “Your socks are dirty. 58 .” “Too bad! I can only get a good mark when I wear them.” Nick said. “Did you prepare for your test?” asked Mom.
“Then don’t worry about it. 59 .” Mom encouraged.
A few days later, Nick’s teacher told him that he got A+ in his test. Nick was so excited that he couldn’t wait to tell Mom he did well in his test. Mom said, “It wasn’t the blue socks that made you a success of the test. 60 .”
八、阅读短文，根据短文内容回答问题。（共 10 分，每小题 2 分）
Young people are always told that they should make the most of their time, that they will never be as free again. So, my question is--why fill up all this free time with housework? Parents expect their children to get good grades, be good at sports, and be popular with other kids.
However, there is not enough time in the day to do these things and then do housework as well. It’s not fair to expect teenagers to give up their free time to do boring housework. Parents and children both have jobs. Parents’ jobs are in the work place. Their children’s jobs are at school.
The only difference is that parents get paid and children don’t. Parents say that they make their kids do housework to teach them responsibility(责任). But this is just a trick(欺骗). Parents trick their kids into doing housework because they are lazy.
Both parents and children have jobs. The parent’s job is to go to work to earn money. The child’s job is to go to school. But we all get hungry. Someone has to cook the meals and clean up after getting home. We all wear clothes that get dirty. Someone has to wash them, iron(熨烫) them, and put them away. Children work from 9 until 4. Parents work from 8 until 6. Sure, after 4 o’clock, children have homework. But after 6, parents have homework too. They have to do the shopping, go to the bank, pay the bills, and help their kids with their own homework!
I think it’s only fair that teenagers help out a bit at home. They might not like it, but it’s good for them. It teaches them how to look after themselves. This is really useful when 65 .
61. What is the writer’s question in Letter A?
62. How are parents’ jobs different from children’s jobs according to Letter A?
63. Do parents have homework according to Letter B?

66. Possible version
Liu Xiang is my hero who is a very successful hurdler.
He won the first Olympic gold medal for China in the world 110m hurdles race. He worked so hard that he suffered a lot from his foot problem. However, he did not give up practising and finally returned to the first place in 2012.
From him I learn the strong will which encourages me so much every time I
want to give up. I take great pride in him.
Some factories produce terrible gas. Rivers are heavily polluted.
As a student, we should do something for the environment. First, we’d better reuse the old textbooks. Second, we should remember to turn off the lights when we leave the classrooms. Finally, it’s a good idea to use china cups instead of paper cups.
It is important to protect the environment because we have only one earth. If we try our best, we can make the world a better place to live in.

Good morning, boys and girls. I’m Mr. Smith. I’ll introduce some safety rules to you. It is very important for you to keep safe at school.
First, in your PE lesson, you may get hurt. When you do all kinds of sports on the playground, you should be careful all the time and do what your teacher tells you to do. On the other hand, you should spend a few minutes doing warm-up activities at the beginning of each PE lesson. Don’t forget to drink some water after your sports. It’s good for your health.
Second, let’s talk about classroom safety. Don’t take the things like knives, scissors to school.
They may hurt yourself or your classmates when you are using them in your classroom.
Finally, when something dangerous happens, please keep calm and follow the instructions of your teachers. Don’t run or you may fall down. If there is a big fire or smoke at school, move near the floor with wet cloth over your mouth and walk on the right side to get out of the building quickly. Don’t use the lift in a fire.
Above all, it is very important to keep the three safety rules in your minds. If necessary, practice them with the help of your teachers. Thank you for listening.

The students of Class had a discussion about whether it is necessary to start learning English from childhood. Some of them think that English learning should start from childhood. As little boys and girls have a very good memory, they can learn a lot of English words by heart. This will help them lay a solid foundation for their future English learning. But others do not agree. Young children have to learn Chinese pinyin at school. If they study Chinese pinyin and English at the same time, it will do a lot of harm not only to their Chinese learning but also to their future English learning. In short, the students have not arrived at any agreement yet.
