We did everything together: piano lessons, movies, swimming, horseback riding. When I was 13, my family moved away. Linda and I kept in touch through letters, and we saw each other on special times—like my wedding and Linda’s. Soon we were busy with children and moving to new homes, and we wrote less often. One day a card that I sent came back, stamped “Address Unknown”. I had no idea how to find Linda. Over the years, I missed Linda very much. I wanted to share happiness of my children and then grandchildren. And I needed to share my sadness when my brother and then mother died. There was an empty place in my heart that only a friend like Linda could fill. One day I was reading a newspaper when I noticed a photo of a young woman who looked
very much like Linda and whose last name was Wagmans—Linda’s married name. “ There must be thousands of Wagmans.” I thought, but I still wrote to her. She called as soon as she got my letter. “ Ms. Tobin!” she said excitedly, “ Linda Evans Wagmns is my mother.” Minutes later I heard a voice that I knew very much, even after 40 years. We laughed, cried and caught up on each other’s lives. Now the empty place in my heart is filled. And there’s one thing that Linda and I know for sure: We won’t lose each other again! 21. What happened to me when I was 13? A. My father died of an illness. B. I got married and had a son. C. My family moved to a new place. D. Linda moved away with her family. 22. Why was the card I sent returned to me? A. I forgot to write the address. B. The address couldn’t be found. C. Something was wrong with the card. D. Linda was sent to a foreign country.[来 23. Over the years, I missed Linda very much because ________. A. Linda could fill my dream B. Linda made a promise that she would visit me C. I needed help from Linda D. I wanted to share happiness and sorrow with Linda B Here are a few books for your children to read as they grow up. Just choose one right now!

A. students B. children C. librarians D. parents C Before you make friends, you have to decide who you want to be your friends. Most people like to have friends who like to do the same kind of things they do. The quickest way to make a friend is to smile. When you smile, people think you are friendly and easy to talk to. It may not be easy at first to smile, but remember most people will stay away from a scared or angry looking face. One easy way to start a conversation with someone is to say something nice about him. Think about how great you feel when someone says something nice to you. Doesn’t it make you want to keep talking to that person? Ask your new friends questions about themselves. Who’s their favorite singer, where do they live, what do they do after school are all good questions to start a conversation. Make sure you have something to add to the conversation, too. When someone asks you a question, do have an answer for them. There’s nothing that will stop a conversation quicker than a shrug (耸肩) for an answer. Kids who show an interest in other kids and who are kind and friendly make good friends. Remember, everyone wants to be around people who like to do similar things and people who are nice to them. 28. This passage gives us some advice on _________. A. how to make friends B. what kind of person you can make friends with C. how to start a conversation D. the importance of smile 29. Most people like to make friends with those______.

D Everyday, 340 million people speak it. One billion people are learning it and it is said that by 2050, half of the world's population will be using it. What are we talking about? That global language----English. The English language started in Britain in the 5th century. It is a mixed language. It was built up when German Scandinavian and French invaders settled in England and created a common language for communication. Today it is the official language of the UK, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and Ireland as well as many islands in the Caribbean. Many other countries and regions use it only for politics and business, for example, India, Pakistan, Nigeria and the Philippines. English is also one of the official languages of Hong Kong. But global advertising and pop music mean that in most countries, you will see or hear some English. Thanks to McDonalds, we all know about "burgers", "fries" and "milkshakes". Songs by Madonna, Britney Spears and Celine Dion are in English. We can sing along, even if we do not understand what we are singing! English is a messy (杂乱的) language. Every year, dictionaries include new words that talk about popular culture, for example, computer-related words such as "blogging", "download" and "chatroom". Also included are words that teenagers use. Who does not know "cool", "OK" and “hello” ? Other languages also influence English. Many English words come from French. Words like "cafe" and expressions like "c'est la vie" (that is life) are all part of the English language. On the other hand, the French language includes English words like "le weekend" and "le camping". German words are also part of English. Words like "kindergarten" come from the German language. Recently, British people have become interested in "yoga". But the word comes from an ancient Hindu language in India. 32. The English language has a history of ______. A. over 2000 years B. over 500 years C. over 1500 years D. over 1000 years 33. Which of the following statements is true about the language of English? A. It has been changing all the time. B. It has borrowed words from all the other languages. C. French words are used by the English because dictionaries have French words. D. Singers and film stars have the greatest influence on language. 34. How many people in the world are using English now? A. One billion people. B. 340 million people. C. Almost all the people in the world. D. Not mentioned above, but the number is growing rapidly. 35. Many countries and regions use English for politics and business except______. A. The USA B. Nigeria C. The Philippines D. Norway 第二节 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 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。 If you want to be happy, you must take responsibility and stop expecting things or people to make you happy.
