Edinburgh is a city where you can easily find your way around, even during the busiest times of the summer festival season. Here are some tips to help you get to where you want to go quickly and easily.
One of the best and most enjoyable ways to discover Edinburgh and get around the city is on foot. Walking from the very centre of the city on Princes Street, it takes 20-30 minutes or so to reach places as far away as the Royal Botanic Garden in the north of the city, the King’s Theatre in the southwest and George Square in the southeast. Of course, whether you want to walk might be dependent on Edinburgh’s famously changeable weather!
Edinburgh’s bus routes cover the entire city. Most festival venues(会场) are either on or nearby at least one main bus route, and the Night Bus Services will help you get to where you want to go. You can buy a bus pass ahead of time. Also, tickets can be bought on board each bus, but they don’t offer change, so having the correct money ready before the bus arrives is necessary— price details will be on the bus stop.
Taxi services are available throughout the city. Taxi fares calculated on distance and waiting time and taxi ride across the city centre can cost between ＄5 and ＄15. For short journeys at busy traffic periods it can often be quicker to walk.
21. Where does the King’s Theatre lies?
A. In the southeast of Edinburgh. B. In the north of Edinburgh.
C. In the northwest of Edinburgh. D. In the southwest of Edinburgh.
22. What can be inferred about Edinburgh’s transportation?
A. The conditions of the transportation are a bit far from comfortable.
B. Small change is a must if one doesn’t buy a bus pass in advance.
C.A person must have a bus pass before he gets on it.
D. Not all buses offer ticket service when someone gets on it.
23. Where can we read this passage?
A. Travelling magazine. B. Science newspaper C. Physics book. D. Poster
Something extraordinary happened last month at Billy Earl Dade Middle School in Dallas.
The school— with a student population of nearly 900, about 90 percent from low-income families¬¬¬¬— planned to host its first “Breakfast with Dads”. About 150 male students, ages 11 to 13, signed up. But event organizers were concerned that some would attend without their Dads at their side, so they put out a call for volunteers who could serve as fathers.
When the day came for the event, nearly 600 men showed up to help and mentor(指导) the boys, some of them volunteering for the first time.
Back in December, the team ran into some difficulties when planning their annual “Breakfast with Dads” events. Dade’s community organizer Ellyn Favors mentioned that students’ participation was low because of some young men not having a father to attend the event. So she decided to post a call for volunteers on Facebook in the hope of finding 50 male mentors to accompany the middle school boys.
Then it led the team to move the event from the cafeteria into the gymnasium so they could house more guests. Team members from Big Thought, the Office OF Cultural Affairs, and even the organizer’s personal friends showed up alongside the male mentors to make the event possible.
“I will never forget witnessing the young students surrounded by supportive community members. There were so many volunteers, that at times I saw young men surrounded in the center of 4-5 mentors. They were laughing. They were talking. They were discussing. They even trusted each other in such short time.” said Ellyn.
24. How many students at Billy Earl Dade Middle School come from low-income families?
A. 900 B. 600 C. 810 D. 150
25. Why did the organizers put out a call for volunteer fathers?
A. Because they needed enough adult men to build a gymnasium.
B. Because they were worried that some boys would have no courage.
C. Because the event was about how to be a successful father.
D. Because they were worried that some boys would attend the event without a father.
26. What does the underlined word “it” mean in the 5th paragraph?
A.The students in the school were from low-income families.
B. Ellyn Favors posted a call for volunteer on Facebook.
C. There were about 600 volunteers taking part in the event.
D. Only 150 boy students signed up to have breakfast with dads.
27. How would the students feel when they got help from the volunteer fathers?
A. They would feel encouraged and warm.
B. They would feel upset and helpless
C. They would feel frustrated and negative.
D. They would feel energetic and mad.
The Internet has made a huge change in people’s lives, and people can’t imagine their lives without the Internet now. Because of the Internet, people can quickly sell and advertise products, and share information. Life before and after the invention of the Internet is totally different. However, what have changed the most are communication, information and business.
First, people communicate with each other every day, and they all want to use the easiest way to get in touch with others. With the help of the Internet, it’s very easy for people to communicate. For example, MSN is an instant message system that people can use to send messages to friends in a second. Also, people can see and talk to their friends through the internet. In the past, people would have to write a letter, put a stamp on it and mail it. The receiver would have to wait for days or weeks to receive the letter. Sometimes people would miss important information or messages because of the long wait. Even though some people used express mail services such as UPS and FedEx, it still cost more than the Internet.
People can also easily receive information from the Internet. Using the Internet, people can find all kinds of information which they need in their lives. For example, people can go to CNN’s website to watch today’s news, google recipes that they want to cook, and use search engines to find other information. In the past, it was impossible to find information instantly just sitting at home.
Besides communication and information, the Internet also plays an important role in the business field.
28. The best title for the passage might be ____.
A. Communicating on the Internet Is Fast
B. Life Without the Internet Can’t Be Imagined
C. How the Internet Has Changed People’s Lives
D. Any Information Can Be Found on the Internet
29. The author uses UPS and FedEx as examples to explain that _____.
A. there are many ways to communicate
B. express mail services are better than e-mails
C. people have to wait a long time for important information
D. communicating on the net is cheaper than using an express mail service
30. The underlined word "instant" in the second paragraph means _____.
A. immediate B. difficult C. useful D. popular
31. The next paragraph following the passage might talk about ______.
A. the conclusion of the passage B. the Internet’s influence on business
C. the Internet’s bad effects on people’s lives D. the Internet’s influence on young people
Yoga has been teaching people to look for a spiritual and physical unity (统一) for centuries. There remains a need to get rid of distractions (分心). This means finding a peaceful place free of distractions and a posture that allows good breathing and relaxing. You also need to wear clothing that will breathe with you, move with you and you will do it all without uncomfortable distractions. That is the role of yoga clothing.
Before deciding on what kind of yoga clothing you will choose, take a look at the type of yoga you will be studying. Some types of yoga require much attention with their easy movements or deep thoughts. For this type of yoga, people usually prefer yoga clothing that is warm. Bikram and Hot Yoga are performed in a room no less than 95 Fahrenheit degrees. People who choose this kind of yoga will naturally require yoga clothing that is light and won’t cause chafing (擦破皮)when wet.
One type of yoga came from the school of Vinyasa Yoga. This type attaches great importance to the movement from one posture to the next. It is a form that results in cardiovascular (心脏血管的) rewards. However, it puts a lot of requirements on the clothing. It must be comfortable and be able to move with you freely. Ashtanga and Power Yoga belong to this kind of yoga.
Yoga is a kind of exercise that needs to touch every part of your life. While you are expecting it to change everything of your life, take a look at the clothing you can put on. A T-shirt that can be worn anywhere will help you take your yoga with you.
32.Why yoga clothing is important for people to do yoga?
A. Because it makes them look physically beautiful.
B. Because it allows them have a good rest and breath.
C. Because it can get rid of distractions while doing yoga.
D. Because it lets them concentrate on the exercise of yoga.
33. From the second paragraph, we can learn that ______.
A. Yoga clothing has nothing to do with the type of yoga you will be studying
B. Yoga can catch one’s attention easily if you are devoted to it.
C. You should choose warm clothes if your yoga needs easy movements
D. you’d better choose thick clothes if you play the kind of yoga Bikram in a room.
34. What’s the most important thing for doing Ashtanga?
A. The connection between the movements. B. The power of people’s hearts.
C. The style of the yoga clothing. D. The thoughts coming into people’s mind.
35. What do we know from the last paragraph?
A. T-shirts are the best yoga clothing for you.
B. You can do yoga anywhere while wearing a suitable shirt.
C. You can print the skills of yoga on a T-shirt and take it everywhere.
D. A good T-shirt will help you learn yoga better wherever you learn.
Keeping a conversation going is important. Consider using a conservation weapon to make sure that you’ll be a well-liked conversationalist. Here are ways to try out.

Give welcomed feedback(反馈)
Give feedback on what the person is talking about. Just make sure that your feedback is welcomed. Be positive in your feedback. ____38____. Because the other people will see that you are being sincere rather than simply agreeing with everything you hear.
Wait for your turn to talk
Whatever you do, don’t interrupt. ____39____. Interrupting is one of the quickest ways to shut down a conversation and upset the other person. Show that you value what others are saying. Truly listen to what is being said rather than trying to think of what you will say next.

A. Repeat what you hear
B. Use people’s names more

Recently there is a fierce debate in our school as to whether we should set off fireworks and firecrackers during the Spring festival.But it is well known that the opinion concerning this hot topic varies from person to person.
some students think setting off firecrackers is a traditional way to celebrate important festivals,especially the Spring Festival.It can show people’s happiness,their feelings and the festive mood.And people can enjoy the beautiful scenery of fireworks.
However, others hold the opposite idea. They think that setting off firecrackers and fireworks may cause a lot of trouble.It may bring air and noise pollution.And it will do harm to people’s eyes and hearing.If firecrackers are not set off correctly, they can injure or disable people or even cause death, which will bring great sorrow to the family.
From these we can see there are more disadvantages,So I approve of not setting off firecrackers and fireworks ,and we may seek other ways to show our happiness. If some people insist on doing it, I think it should be limited to certain areas and time.
M: How about joining me for a cup of coffee?
W: I’d love to, but I’m exhausted. I was up till 3:00 this morning, writing a paper for my literature class.
W: When are you leaving tomorrow? You look so excited.
M: Just imagine! I’ll take the early flight at eight in the morning and see my parents in just two hours.
M: Hi, Linda. I didn’t see you at breakfast time. Didn’t you have breakfast?
W: Well, I woke up early this morning so that I could go for a long walk. I was the last person to come out of the dining hall.
W: What’s that building over there?
M: That’s the new art museum. It’s not particularly attractive from the outside, but it’s very nice inside. Quite an unusual building, isn’t it?
W: I’m afraid I don’t think much of it. I’m not a big fan of modern architecture.
M: Have you read the research report?
W: Yes, but it wasn’t well-written. I sent it back to the department with some suggestions.
M: Good. I couldn’t understand it either, but I thought it was just me!
W: ⑥Right behind me is the Brooklyn Bridge. This is often called New York City’s most beautiful bridge. ⑦It was completed in 1883 and it took 15 years and cost 15 million dollars to build.
M: Who designed the bridge?
W: It was designed by John Roebling, but he died after an accident early in the project. It was his son Washington Roebling who actually managed and completed the project.
W: ⑧Can you help me get dinner ready, Michael? I know you’ve got some homework to do but you’ll have time to do that after the dinner.
M: But there’s a program on TV later that I want to watch. Why don’t you ask Jane?
W: Your sister is taking a shower. I need you to help me now. ⑨You can always record the program.
M: All right then. I suppose I can watch it tomorrow.
W: What can I do for you, sir?
M: It’s very cold in the cabin. Is it possible to get a blanket?
W: I’m afraid we’re out of blankets, but here’s a pillow.
M: OK, thanks. I was asleep during the meal service. Could I get a meal?
W: Sure, but we don’t have any more of the baked chicken. (11) We only have the bean salad left.
M: (11) Oh, OK, I’ll take that. Could I also get a drink?
W: Yes, of course. What would you like to have?
M: A diet soda, please.
W: (12) Sorry, we’re out of diet soda. But we have coffee, beer and wine. They are $4 each.
M: (11) How about just some water?
W: (11) We do have water.
M: Could I get an airsickness bag, please?
W: Sure. Wait a minute. I’ll be back soon.
M: I’ve lived in Britain for seven years. Last week I visited my home city.
W: (16) This was your first visit in seven years?
M: That’s right. (13) I saw my friend Stefan from high school.
W: I’m sure it was great to see him and look around.
M: (14) Oh, yeah. We had lunch in a restaurant. It was beside a new shopping mall. When we’d finished lunch, we walked by the river. (15) The riverside used to be the factory area, but now there are gardens and a new sports center.
W: That sounds great.
M: Yeah. There didn’t use to be a sports center in the city.
W: What else did you see?
M: We walked across a modern road bridge. (15) The engineers had just started it the year I left. I used to watch them on my way home from school. Now it’s finished and it’s so busy.
M: Good afternoon. Now, I’ll tell you our swim classes at the Community Pool. (17) Classes begin on Monday, May 1st, and will continue throughout the summer. (18) Fifteen swim classes are being offered. Each class lasts ten hours. A new class starts each week of the summer. Each class costs $20.The pool is big enough for six students per class. Classes will increase in difficulty each week. Students can sign up for as many classes as they like, but they must pass the skill level test. For example, students who sign up for Level 4 must show their certificate for completing Level 3.Children cannot sign up for a level they are not ready for. (19) Children who have never attended Community Pool classes must show up on April 29th or 30th for a swim skill show. (20) Instructors will rate the students and assign them to a particular skill level.
