Can you swim? Do you like swimming? Yes? Well, how can you learn to swim? I think the best way is to go into the water and learn. I?m afraid you?ll never learn to swim just by reading books about swimming or looking at others swimming. It?s the same with English study. We must practice, practice and practice. Listening and speaking are very important for beginners. The children in English-speaking countries first listen to others.Then they try to imitate and speak. We can listen to English programs on the radio. Maybe at first you can understand only a few words. It doesn?t matter. Just be relaxed. Keep listening and try to catch every word. Somebody may be a good listener. But he is too shy to speak. He?s afraid of making mistakes. You know we sometimes make mistakes when we speak Chinese. Don?t be afraid. We must be brave. If you really want to learn English well, you must try to speak with anyone who knows English. Whether you know him or not is not important. When there?s nobody to talk with, you can talk to yourself in English. It?s interesting and also a good way to practice your spoken English. Remember, the more you speak, the fewer mistakes you?ll make. Reading and writing are more important for senior school students. First you must choose the books you?re interested in. A lot of reading will improve your language sense. This is the important thing. Keep writing English diaries. We can also write English articles. You may even post them to English magazines. Don?t be afraid of failure. Failure is the mother of success. Easier said than done. Well, let?s do more practice from now on. I?m sure you?ll learn English well in this way. 56. You can learn to swim by ______. A. reading books about it B. looking at others swimming C. having lessons on it D. going into the water and swimming 57. Which is the best way to deal with the mistakes when you speak? A. Don?t make mistakes. B. Don?t be afraid. C. Try not to speak English. D. Study hard. 58. What?s more important for senior school students? A. Listening and speaking. B. Reading and writing. C. Speaking and writing. D. Writing and listening.

of time they spent with their children． The survey of 1,000 mothers also found that more than a third said they had less time to themselves than their mothers did — just three hours a week or 26 minutes a day． And 64 percent said this was because they felt they 'had' to go out to work, while nearly a third （29 per cent） said they were under constant pressure to be the 'perfect mother', the report found． Other findings showed social network and parenting website were important in providing help and support among female communities Kate Fox, of the Social Issues Research Centre, which conducted the survey for Procter & Gamble, said: "With increasing pressure on mothers to work a 'double shift' — to be the perfect mother as well as a wage-earner — support networks are more important than ever．" It comes as a separate report examining childcare in the leading industrialized nations found that working mothers in Britain spend just 81 minutes a day caring for their children as a "primary activity"． Critics（评论家）say the pressure on women to work long hours, and leave their children in the hands of nurseries or child minders, is putting the well-being of their children at risk． The study also shows that, despite the fact that more and more modern mothers go out to work, the burden of childcare still falls on them — even if their husband is not in work． A father who is not in work tends to spend just 63 minutes a day looking after his child — 18 minutes less than a mother who goes out to work． Working fathers spare less than three quarters of an hour with their children． 59．What is the main idea of the passage? A．More and more modern mothers go out to work to support the families． B．Today's parents would rather leave their children in the hands of nurseries． C．Today's parents have less time to take care of their children． D．To keep the balance of work and family is not an easy thing． 60．What does the underlined word "juggle" in Paragraph 2 probably mean? A．keep objects in the air B．do many things at once C．change things D．organize spending 61．According to Kate Fox, ． A．people should learn to relax by using the network B．network plays an important role in society C．mothers should make use of the network to gain support D．it is impossible for woman to become the "double shift" 62．Today's mothers lack the time to company their children mainly because ． A．they have no choice but go to work B．they are under constant pressure C．they want to be "the perfect mother" D．they have more time to themselves 63．Which of the following statements is True? A．Mothers usually spend three hours looking after their children a day． B．Since more and more modern mothers go out to work, the burden of childcare falls on fathers． C．Child minders are good to the health of the children． D．Mothers spend more time with their children than fathers． C

A specially-adapted sensory （传递感觉的） helmet, developed by researchers at the University of Sheffield, could provide fire-fighters operating in challenging conditions with vital clues （线索） about their surroundings. The helmet is fitted with a number of ultrasound(超声波) sensors （传感 器）that are used to discover the distances between the helmet and nearby walls or other obstacles. These signals are sent out to vibration pads (振动板) that are attached to the inside of the helmet, touching the wearer's forehead. Rescue workers, such as fire-fighters, who might be working in dark conditions or in buildings filled with smoke, will be able to use the signals to find walls and other obstacles that could help guide them through unfamiliar environments. It is expected that a lightweight version of the technology could also be useful to people with visual damage, acting as an additional ?sense? to guide users or to help them avoid danger. Professor Tony Prescott of the University of Sheffield and director of Scent Ro said, “When a firefighter is responding to an emergency situation, he will be using his eyes and ears to make sense of his environment, trying to make out objects in a smoke-filled room, for example, or trying hard to hear sounds from people who might need rescuing. We found that in these circumstances it was difficult to process additional information through these senses. Using the sense of touch, however, we were able to deliver additional information effectively.” The team also found that the helmet was the ideal place to locate the vibrating pads because, although the fingertips might seem a more obvious choice, stimuli (刺激物) delivered to the wearers? forehead enabled them to respond more rapidly to the signals, and would also leave their hands free for other tasks. The helmet was developed using a Rosenbauer helmet donated by North-fire Company Limited and was produced following a two-year research project, provided money by the E & Phs Research Council. South Yorkshire Fire Service had also assisted, providing advice during the development period as well as access to their training facility. The next step is to find a commercial partner interested in further developing the helmet. 72. Which word can be used to complete the following process of how the sensory helmet works? Ultrasound sensors discover the distance. Signals are sent out to the pads. Wearers feel the vibration . Wearers receive the .
A. light B. heat C. information D. weight 69. Which of the following might be the best title for the text? A. Sensory helmet helps firefighters discover more. B. Sensory helmet protects firefighters from danger. C. Sensory helmet has great marketing potential. D. Sensory helmet frees firefighters for more things. 70. Who provided the money for the sensory helmet research project? A. North-fire Company Limited B. the E & Phs Research Council C. South Yorkshire Fire Service D. the University of Sheffield 71. The author writes the passage mainly to ________. A. argue that a sensory helmet is better than a traditional one B. call people?s attention to the firefighters? working conditions C. prove technological development improves the rescue efficiency D. introduce a sensory helmet mainly used for emergency service

E Anxiety is the appropriate（适当的）emotion when the immediate personal terror—of a volcano, an arrow, a stab（刺伤）in the back and other disasters, all directed against one?s self-disappears. The kind of world that produces anxiety is actually a world of relative safety, a world in which no one feels that he himself is facing sudden death. The anxiety exists as an uneasy state of mind, in which one has a feeling that something unspecified（不具体的）and indeterminable may go wrong. If the world seems to be going well, this produces anxiety—for good times may end. If the world is going badly—it may get worse. Anxiety tends to be without focus; the anxious person doesn?t know whether to blame himself or other people. He isn?t sure whether it is the current year of the administration or a change in climate or the atom bomb that is to blame for this undefined sense of unease. It is clear that we have developed a society which depends on having the right amount of anxiety to make it work…While we agree that too much anxiety is harmful to mental health, we have come to rely on anxiety to push us into seeing a doctor about a symptom（症状）which may indicate cancer, into checking up on that old life-insurance policy which may have out-of-date provisions in it, into having a conference with Billy?s teacher even though his report card looks all right. People who are anxious enough keep their car insurance up, have the brakes checked, don?t take a second drink when they have to drive. People who are too anxious either refuse to go into cars at all—and so complicate the ordinary course of life—or drive so tensely and carefully that they help cause accidents. People who aren?t anxious enough take chance after chance, which increases the terrible accidents of the roads. 72．According to the author, anxiety is the emotion when . A．one is filled with a sudden sense of uneasiness B．one sees no immediate danger C．one has a unclear sense about his life D．one feels that the world may go badly 73．The author holds that . A． anxiety is a good thing B． anxiety is a symptom of mental illness C．some anxiety can lead to changes for the better D．no anxiety is bad for society 74．According to the author, accidents of the road tend to be caused by . A．all those who are too anxious B．all those who have anxiety C．those who have no anxiety D．those who are not anxious enough 75．The best title for the passage would be . A．One Man?s Thought about Anxiety B．The Right Amount of Anxiety C．Anxiety comparing Safety D．Different Attitudes to Anxiety

格只填一个单词。 The option （选择） of home schooling has been around for a long time, but has only recently become popular. Children who are home schooled can avoid many of the problems schools have become known for. For one, the environment is less dangerous. Children can learn without fearing other students or aggressive or bad-tempered teachers. In addition, home schooling allows parents to dictate the academic pace of their children and tailor it to their individual（个别的）needs. If a child is weak in multiplication and division, a parent can focus lessons on those skills instead of wasting time on skills the child has already grasped. Home schooling is also advantageous because it keeps children away from bad students. Many students do not value leaning. There students can destroy a learning environment. Home schooling keeps children focused on learning, not on avoiding social pressures. It may sound like the perfect option, but there are many disadvantages to home schooling. First of all, home-schooled children are often poorly socialized（交往）. In addition, many parents are not qualified as teachers and may not understand what is necessary to give their children an adequate education. Finally, in home schooling parents take full responsibility for their child’s education. If you choose to home school your child, there is no one else for you to blame if your child does poorly. Before you begin home schooling, make sure you have evaluated your ability to instruct your child. If you do not think you can handle it, send your child to school, but stay involved in his or her education.
