Charlie Chaplin is a great comic for his native land Britain, but even more so for the world. On the
stage he often wore tiny moustaches, huge pants and tailcoats that were perhaps more characteristic of
Europeans and may be not much of the British. Since more than half of the roles Chaplin played were

and appreciated by people all over the world. For most of his lifetime he did not stay in his mother
country; he traveled throughout the world to appear on stage for people of different nationalities

Compare the new welfare system with the old one and you would find a world of difference between
the two. Under the new welfare system, the law encourages welfare clients to work on their own for a
gradual shift away from welfare, and this is not the case in the past. Welfare clients now can develop
their talents to make money. In the past, they often cheated to bleed the system for a few extra dollars.
Now caseworkers will gladly help their clients find appropriate jobs rather than act like detectives to
try to seek out any unreported properties. Today many welfare clients have made a choice to live a life
of complete honesty and they tell the truth to caseworkers and declare any extra income they make.
In cases like this, caseworkers will feel greatly relieved because they don't need to search for any
cheating as in the past.

XV. Some people prefer to live alone whereas some others have to live alone for one reason or another.
Those people believing in inspirational solitude argue that no companion is more companionable than
solitude. Literary giants such as William Wordsworth, John Milton and Henry Thoreau enjoyed living
alone on purpose. Hunters or explorers enjoy themselves as they venture out to tame the great wild
areas. On the other hand, there are some other people who have to live alone due to various reasons:
being divorced, widowed or never married. Many of them feel bitter to live in solitude. They have no
one to talk to and as a result they talk at length to themselves and to their pets and to the television.

Typically there are two kinds of people who choose to live alone on purpose. The first group of people
is artists. They believe in the inspiration in solitude. One of my friends is a writer. He enjoys the time
when he is alone because he can stay up late to read and, above all, concentrate on his writing without
fear of being interrupted by others. On his wall he posts a quotation from Thoreau: "I never found
the companion that was so companionable as solitude." The second group consists of people who
are disappointed with their marriage or family life. A woman I know has been living alone since her
husband left her five years ago. She is not waiting for his return but she is just disappointed with life.

Part I Reading Comprehension
Directions: There are 2 passages in this section. Each passage is followed by some questions or
unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A), B), C) and D).
You should decide on the best choice.
Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage.
There is a range of activities which require movements of about one to four or five miles.
These might be leisure activities, such as moving from home to swimming pool, tennis club, the theatre or other cultural centre, or to a secondary or more advanced school; or they might be movement associated with work and shopping in the central areas of cities. The use of cars
capable of carrying five people at 80 mph for satisfying these needs is wasteful of space and most productive of disturbance to other road users.
The use of the bicycle, or some more modern derivative of it, is probably worth more
consideration than has been given to it. The bicycle itself is a remarkably efficient and simple device for using human muscular energy for transportation. In pure energy terms, it is four to five times as efficient as walking, even though human walking itself is twice as efficient as the movement of effective animals such as dogs or gulls. It is still widely used, not only in some developing countries where bicycles are major means of transport of people and goods, but in a few richer towns such as Amsterdam in Holland and Cambridge in England.
It usually gives inadequate protection from the weather, is not very suitable for carrying
goods, and demands considerable muscular work to make progress against the wind or uphill. It also offers its rider no protection against collisions with other vehicles. All these difficulties could, however, be greatly eliminated, if not removed, with relatively small changes in design. The whole machine could be enclosed in a plastic bubble, which would provide some protection in case of accidents. It would be easy to add a small petrol or electric motor. A wide variety of designs would be possible. As in rowing, we might employ the power of the arms or the general body musculature (肌肉组织), as well as those of the legs; more muscular exercise would be good for the health of many people in cities, and a wide use of bicycles like muscle-powered vehicles would be a useful way to ensure this. It could also provide ample opportunities for showing off by the young and vigorous.
1. The main idea of the first paragraph is that ___B___.
A) facilities in the community fail to meet people’s demand
B) the car is far from perfect for short range movement
C) people today have more choices to enrich their lives
D) people are busy moving from one place to another
2. More importance should be attached to the bicycle for transportation because it ___A___.
A) happens to be a very efficient and simple device
B) occupies a little space and causes no disturbance
C) is still widely used in Amsterdam and Cambridge
D) is within the financial ability of common people
3. Enclosing the bicycle in a plastic bubble would ___D____.
A) spare riders a lot of muscular effort
B) enable riders to cover a long distance
C) prevent it from colliding with other vehicles
D) prevent riders from being badly injured in accidents
4. According to the passage, what can be said of the bicycle? C
A) It is nowadays disappearing in the big cities.
B) It can not carry heavy loads, for it requires much energy.
C) It leaves much to be improved so as to be popularized.
D) It is chiefly used for exercise, not for transportation.
5. The author of the passage is most probably a(n)____B____.
A) bicycle advertiser
B) government official
D) bicycle producer
Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage.
Accidents and illness are unhappy things to talk about, but no one can expect to live a
lifetime without having some kind of accident or becoming ill. Some accidents and illnesses are serious and may result in long periods of invalidism（病弱，病身）.
The newspapers contain spectacular accounts of accidents in the street and highways and
public places, but nearly as many accidents occur around the home. Somebody trips on a rug.
Somebody falls off a stepladder. Somebody is careless in cooking dinner, and is burned. Accidents incurred in the playing of sports and swimming also accounts for a large number of injuries, big and little. Despite constant campaigns to reduce the number of accidents, there are still
appropriately 100,000 accidental deaths and nearly 9,000,000 non-fatal injuries in the United States each year.
It has been estimated that around 3,000,000 people are constantly ill in the United States
throughout the year and that over half the illness is caused by respiratory (呼吸的) diseases, chiefly colds and influenza.
The pain and suffering caused by accidents and illness tell only half the story. Loss of time from school and work and medical and hospital expenses often make the pain seem worse. Money spent in this country for doctors, services, hospitalization, nursing care, drugs, medicines, X-rays,
and special treatments amounts to a huge annual sum. Added to this expense is another much
larger amount that is lost in wage earners throughout the nation by reason of their loss of wages or income while sick or otherwise disabled.
Accidents and health insurance is a form of insurance devised to protect against these
economic losses. It protects the earnings of wage earners and furnishes financial aid to the family of the breadwinner by the payment of his doctor and hospital bills. Today, business and
professional men, farmers, industrial workers, clerks, and those engaged in various occupations, whose earning power is shut off for a week, a month, or sometimes years, because of accidents or illness can insure themselves against this financial loss by accident and health insurance.
Protection is available to all types of workers and the cost (called the premium) ranges from a few cents a day for small or limited policies to a month for policies paying larger amounts (called indemnities) policy is another name for an insurance contract. Most accident and health policies are cancelable policies -- that is to say, they are sold for a definite term such as a week, a month, or a year, similar to contracts of fire insurance and automobile liability insurance. There are, however, policies which cannot be canceled or terminated by the insurance company until the policy holder reaches an age at which he usually has no further earning power -- most often at sixty or sixty-five years. These non-cancelable policies cost more than the cancelable policies.
6. What is the main idea of the passage? C
A) More attention should be paid to preventing accidents illness.
B) Accidents and illness cause the US people to suffer a lot.
C) Insurance is a good protection against accidents and illness.
D) Cancelable insurance policies are better than non-cancelable one.
7. The word “incurred” in the 2nd paragraph can most probably be replaced by ___B____.
C) involved B) brought upon oneself D) hard to avoid
8. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A
A) Accidents and illness are the source of suffering and poverty unless one is helped.
B) Most blue collars would prefer cancelable policies to non-cancelable policies.
C) Traffic accidents bring more losses than those happening around the home.
D) It is hardly possible for people to insure for a period less than half a year.
9. The main difference between cancelable insurance policies and non-cancelable policies is the
C) valid term B) policy holder’s age D) one’s earning power
B) Employees in welfare departments.
D) Newcomers in the insurance companies. 10. Who would spend much time reading over the passage? A A) Readers interested in insurance. C) Accidents victims
Part II Reading in Depth
Directions: In this section, there is a passage with ten blanks. You are required to select one word
for each blank from a list of choices given in a word bank following the passage. Read the passage through carefully before making your choices. Each choice in the bank is identified by a letter. Questions 11 to 20 are based on the following passage.
Reading to oneself is a modern activity which was almost unknown to the scholars of the
classical and mediaeval（中世纪）worlds, while during the fifteen century the term “reading” meant reading aloud. Only during the nineteenth century did silent reading become commonplace.
One should be because reading aloud is a distraction to others. Examination of factors to the
historical development of silent reading reveals that it became the usual mode of reading for most adult reading tasks mainly because the tasks themselves changed in character.
The last century saw a gradual increase in literacy（读写能力）, and thus in the number of readers. As readers increased, so the number of potential listeners decreased, and thus there was some in the need to read aloud. As reading for the benefit of listeners grew less common, so came the flourishing of reading as a activity in such public places as libraries, railway carriage and offices, where reading aloud would cause to other readers.
Towards the end of the century there was still considerable over whether books should be used for information or treated respectfully, and over whether the reading of material such as newspapers was in some way mentally weakening. Indeed this argument remains with us still in education. However, whatever its virtue, the old shared literacy culture had gone and was by the printed mass media on the one hand and by books and periodicals for a specialized readership on the other.
By the end of the century students were being to adopt attitude to books and to use skills in reading them which were inappropriate, if not impossible, for the oral readers. The social, cultural, and technological changes in the century had greatly altered what the term

ii) The reason for this: Active classroom participants develop more positive attitudes and go on to higher achievement.
iii) Two examples:
a. In many of the former all-women’s colleges, the boys were taking over the class-room discussions and active participation by women students had diminished noticeably.
b. A similar subordination of female to male students has also been observed in law and medical school classrooms in recent years.
B. Teachers assigned boys and girls different tasks according to stereotyped gender roles. (para. 3)
i) Its consequence: This prevented girls from participating as actively as boys in class. ii) An example: A teacher had the little boys perform the scientific experiment while the girls were given the task of putting the materials away.
C. Gender-biased education is also reflected in the typical American teacher’ assumption. (para 4)
i) The assumption: Boys will do better in the hard, masculine subjects of math and science while girls are expected to have better verbal and reading skills.
ii) Three examples:
a. American boys do develop reading problems, while girls, who are superior to boys in math up to the age of nine, fall behind from then on.
b. In Germany, all studies are considered masculine and it is girls who develop reading problems.
c. In Japan, where early education appears to be nonsexist, both girls and boys do equally well in reading.
(3) The educational bias begins at home. (para 5)
A. Supporting evidence:
i) Boy preschoolers were permitted to go away from home in a much wider area than
ii) Boys were encouraged to develop intellectual curiosity and physical skills, while girls are filled with fears of the world outside the home and with the desire to be approved of for their goodness and obedience to rules.
B. The consequence when these lessons carry over from the home to the classroom: Girls are generally observed to be more dependent on the teacher, more concerned with the form and neatness of their work than its content, and more anxious about being right in their answers than in being intellectually independent, analytical, or original.
C. Conclusion: Through the educational process that occupies most of the child’s waking hours, society reinforces its established values and turns out each sex in its traditional and expected mold.

My Views on the Internet
Internet plays an important role in our life. First, The world gets smaller and communication becomes easier and faster, because through the Internet we can get to know people from all over the world. Besides, we can work at home by sending email and accessing online information. Finally, online shopping makes our life more convenient.
But as many other modern inventions, Internet has its problems. For instance, there is too much junk information on the net, and it wastes our time. Even worse, some evil persons commit crimes using the Internet technology.
Thousands of people have fallen in love with the Internet. It ’s necessary to adopt stricter administration measures so that it will serve us better.

Please accept my apologies for offending you yesterday afternoon. I know I was being very rude at the moment, but I really didn’t mean to hurt you. But you know, I am short-tempered by nature, and sometimes I just can’t control myself. Now I understand I was wrong. And I’m very sorry for the unpleasant words I said to you in a hot temper.
Will you forgive me and accept my apology? If you are free tonight, will you come to dinner at my house？I’ve cooked something nice, and maybe we can have a nice talk over the meal and forget about the whole thing.
Television has both advantages and disadvantages to us. On the one hand, it can make us informed of daily news, let us know the outside world, provide lessons for the learners, and can even bring joy to our lives as well.
On the other hand, some television programs have been extremely harmful to the young. A case in point is the movies with violent scenes. Watching TV too long can do harm to our body and it’s a great distraction for us to work.
So young people should learn to get ride of the bad influences of TV and learn to make use of the advantages that TV can bring us.
