He was once referred to as the Picasso of poetry. Beloved by Chileans of all classes, he is one of the most widely read and respected poets in history. And this year is the 100th birthday of Pablo Neruda(1904—1973)． Born with the name Neftali Ricardo Reyes Basolto, he was a tall, shy and lonely boy. He loved to read and started to write poetry when he was ten. The American poet Walt Whitman, whose framed picture Neruda later kept on his table became a major influence on his work. However, his father did not like the idea of having a poet for a son and tried to discourage him from writing. To cover up (掩饰) the publication of his first poem, he took the pen name Pablo Neruda. In 1924 Neruda gained fame with his most widely read work ―Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.‖ Yet his rich experience as a diplomat and exile(流犯) made him go beyond the theme of love. His work also reflected the political struggle of the left and development of South America. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. Neruda loved the sea which he saw as creative, destructive and forever moving. He found inspiration in the power and freedom of the waves and the seabirds on the coast. ―I need the sea because it teaches me,‖ he wrote. ―I move in the university of the waves.‖ He loved how the sea forever renewed itself, a renewal echoed in his work. 21. The underlined word ―Picasso‖ can probably be replaced by―________‖． A. most important person B. famous person from Picasso C. freedom fighter in Picasso D. poem fans 22. Neftali Ricardo Reyes Basolto took the pen name Pablo Neruda because________. A. literary greats usually used the pen name B. his father encouraged him to use the name C. he wanted to prevent his father knowing the publication D. he was greatly influenced by other poets
23. Which of the following is not the theme of his works? A. Love. B. Political struggle. C. Social reform. D. Development of South America. 24. The last paragraph mainly tells us________. A. the sea gave Neruda vast writing inspiration B. the beautiful scenery along the Chile coast C. Neruda's poems were widely read overseas D. Neruda loved to write his poems near the sea
British MPs (国会议员) have voted in favour of the creation of babies with DNA from two women and one man, in a historic move. The UK is now set to become the first country to introduce laws to allow the creation of babies from three people. In a free vote in the Commons, 382 MPs were in favour and 128 against the technique that stops genetic diseases being passed from mother to child. During the debate, ministers said the technique was ―light at the end of a dark tunnel‖ for families. A further vote is required in the House of Lords. If everything goes ahead then the first such baby could be born next year. Supporters said it was ―good news for progressive medicine‖ but critics say they will continue to fight against the technique that they say raises too many ethical (伦理的) and safety concerns. Estimates suggest 150 three-person babies could be born each year. Prime Minister David Cameron said: ―We're not playing god here; we're just making sure that two parents who want a healthy baby can have one.‖ The method, which was developed in Newcastle, should help women like Sharon Bernadi, from Sunderland, who lost all seven of her children to mitochondrial (线 粒体的) disease. Ms Bernadi said she was ―overwhelmed‖ by the decision. Mitochondria are the tiny compartments (隔间) inside nearly every cell of the body that transform food into useable energy. They have their own DNA, which does not affect characteristics such as appearance. Defective mitochondria are passed down only from the mother. They can lead to brain damage, muscle wasting, heart failure and blindness. The technique uses a modified version to combine the DNA of the two parents with the healthy mitochondria of a donor woman. It results in babies with 0.1% of their DNA from the second woman and is a permanent change that would be passed down through the generations. 25. According to the passage, which of the following statements is NOT true? A. The new technique is intended to provide the parents a healthy baby. B. The mitochondrial disease can lead to various fatal illnesses. C. Britain is the first country to have created three-person babies. D. All of Ms Bernadi’s children died of a genetic disease. 26. The underlined word ―defective‖ is closest to the meaning of ________. A. strangely-made B. normally developed C. functioning perfectly D. not functioning properly 27. It can be inferred from the passage that ________. A. Mitochondria are inside nearly every cell that change food into useable energy B. DNA of Mitochondria can affect a person’s appearance C. in medical science ethical factors should be taken into consideration D. the donor woman’s DNA will not be found in the three-person baby
28. Prime Minister David Cameron _________ the creation of such babies. A. is in favour of B. throws doubt on C. objects to D. is indifferent to

Students in American schools learn from an early age to give presentations(演讲) as part of their regular classroom activities. Children as young as five years old often give brief talks about objects they bring in to school – called ―show and tell,‖ and this training is a basis for later public speaking. Even so, many native English-speaking adults are afraid to speak or give presentations in front of a large group. Speaking English in public meetings is necessary for many students and employees. The best way to improve is to practice public speaking in a friendly environment. Learners need to receive feedback about what they are doing well and about their mistakes. One group that gives members the chance to practice is Toastmasters. Toastmasters is an international organization that holds weekly meetings. At the meetings, members each give a speech and give others advice about their speeches and speaking style. Charles LeBeau is a public speaking professor and consultant. He began his career in Japan in 1982. Currently, he teaches at two universities and at the Toshiba International Training Center. He has also written books on the subject. English language learners around the world use his book Speaking of Speech. Speaking of Speech tells about a method of teaching public speaking for non-native speakers. Mr. LeBeau says a simple approach helps English learners. ―The approach that I’ve taken is to simplify and break it down. First if we look at a presentation, what’s going on, there are basically three messages that the presenter is giving the audience, all simultaneously(同 时). There’s what I call the physical message. Physical message is basically body language. It’s the way that my body, as a speaker, is talking to the audience. And then there’s also the visual message. The visual messages are the slides that we now make and show the audience. The third message is the story message. The story message is the content of our presentation. So another way we can think of the story messages is that it’s the verbal message, and it’s what we say to the audience. The story message also includes how we organize our ideas to present to the audience,‖ LeBeau said. 32. Which of the following statements is true? A. The best way to improve is to practice public speaking in an unfriendly environment. B. Toastmasters is an international organization that holds meetings every two weeks. C. Only non-native English-speaking adults are afraid to give presentations in front of a large group. D. At the meetings of Toastmasters, members give not only a speech but also advice. 33. What are the three messages given in Mr. LeBeau’s simple approach that helps English learners? a. the physical message b. the visual message c. the story message d. the verbal message e. the basically body language
A. a b c B. b c d C. a b e D. c d e 34. The book Speaking of Speech by Charles LeBeau is mainly intended for___________. A. children as young as five years old B. non-native English speakers C. native English speakers only D. students in American schools 35. Which could be the best title for this passage? A. Necessity of Speaking English in Public Meetings B. Toastmasters, an international organization C. Tips for Public Speaking D. Charles LeBeau, a public speaking professor and consultant

根据短文内容, 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 The attraction of television is undeniable when it comes to kids. 36 Here are guidelines we created to help us decide what’s appropriate for our family: Monitor television time. Choosing good shows isn’t a big issue if you’re not watching a lot of television, so really the best solution to finding appropriate television is saying, ―Go play.‖ 37 Don’t trust network ratings. A kid-approved stamp given by a television network is a general guide that doesn’t take into account your parenting style and the things your family feels are important. 38 There are plenty of adult cartoon shows on television now, many with highly inappropriate topics. 39 The bottom line is, I want to know what my kids are watching, and if the TV is on my time in our home, I want to first approve of the show ahead of time, and second to watch it with my kids so that I’m aware of anything they might be seeing that needs intervention(干涉). Talk about the show with your kids. As kids get older, we realize that we can’t shelter them from every single person/show/behavior that doesn’t fit exactly with our values. They’re going to hear a swear word from time to time—and might walk into the room while the characters in the romantic comedy we’re watching are kissing. 40 A. If it doesn’t feel good, turn it off. B. And be aware of cartoons! C. We can talk about what we see, though, using story-lines to teach lessons when possible. D. The standard for what our kids can watch might be difficult to set. E. But how do you choose which shows are appropriate for the younger set? F. Watch TV with them. G. Still, a little bit of television doesn’t hurt and can be fun.

after the flesh-eating weasel jumped onto its back and attacked it. The extraordinary picture was taken by Martin Le-May, an amateur 62 (photograph) who was out walking with his wife in Hornchurch Country Park, Essex. ―As we walked we heard a painful noise and I saw the flash of green,‖ said Mr Le-May, 52. ―We trained our telescope and it occurred that the woodpecker was 63 （natural） jumping about like it was standing 64 a hot surface. The bird was about 50m away from us and took off just as I lifted the camera up. Originally, I 65 (think) I was just taking 66 picture of a green woodpecker flying. Then I realized it had 67 on its back. Suddenly it was obvious it had a small creature on its back and this was a struggle for life.‖ The bird was around two meters off the ground when Mr. Le-May caught it on camera. Happily, it managed 68 (shake) off the weasel and fly up into the trees. The picture became a hot topic when it was circulated on social media, with some Twitter users 69 (say) it could not be real. 70 Matt Binstead, head keeper at the British Wildlife Centre, said: ―You can tell it’s a real photograph‖.

七、书面表达： （one possible version）
Be a Civilized Chinese With the improvement of Chinese people’s living standard, more and more people choose to travel abroad as a way of spending their holidays. However, some tourists have uncivilized behavior when they are traveling abroad, which greatly makes all of us Chinese ashamed. For example, when they visit some world famous places of interest, they litter here and there. What’s worse, some even carve their names on the trees or statues. Besides, some tourists talk loudly in public places with each other or on their mobile-phones. Worst of all, some passengers on board even fight against each other or with the air-hostesses just because of some inconvenience. These actions show the low quality of some tourists. As far as I am concerned, it’s the duty of every Chinese to protect the environment and public facilities, no matter where we are traveling. Only in this way can we be civilized Chinese who will win respect from all over the world.
