    Jason's mother sat him down at the dinner table one Saturday afternoon to a feast (款待) he could not believe. In front of him were his three favorite desserts.

    As Jason wondered what he had done to deserve them, his mother spoke, Son, you see your favorite desserts, right Jason nodded.

    His mother continued. “Now, I have some good news and some bad news for you. And then you get to make a decision. The good news is that you get to choose one of these three desserts to eat.”

    Sothat was it? He could only eat one?

    The bad news is that I have put poison (毒药) in one of the three desserts Jason's mother said. The poison is so poisonous that it will kill you in a matter of minutes. It will be painful and there is no antidote (解药). If you don't die immediatelyyou will know that you have chosen well.

    Jason's mouth dropped open. You're joking, right

    No, sir his mother replied. “I'm serious. Now, which dessert do you choose? You have ten seconds.”

    This is crazy shouted Jason. “I don't need ten seconds! Only a fool would eat any of the desserts now that you've said eating one may kill him.”

    Jason's mother nodded in agreement. That's right she said. “Only a fool would take a one in three chance of eating something that could kill him, even if it tasted really great.” Then his mother lifted a package of cigarettes and put them on the table. Tell me then she continued, why would a teenager ever smoke one of these terrible things when the chance of dying from smoking­related illness is one in three

    Jason's face turned red. This has become one of the most important lessons for him. He would never choose a poisonous cake as well as a cigarette.

    One late night after celebrating with two friends who had just finished grade school I decided it was time to go home.

    So I walked towards the bus stop worrying that I might already have missed the last bus. It was Sunday and the buses were few and far between.

    When I arrived, there were still a few people waiting, so I thought perhaps there might be one last bus. After waiting a while I called a friend and asked her to look up the schedule online. Sure enough we had all missed the last bus by about ten minutes.

    One person insisted another bus was to come so we waited. Some people were getting upset as it seemed the only way home at that time was to call a taxi but most of them only had enough for bus fare. There was a mother with two beautiful twin girls who was particularly distressed.

    I decided it was too late and too dangerous to let everyone get home on their own. So I called a taxi company and asked the company to send out a van (客货车). I told everyone that if they wanted, they could all ride with me and I'd make sure they all got home, no matter where they lived. About six of us all piled into the van when it finally arrived.

    I was one of the first to reach my destination. I reached into my pocket and pulled out enough money to be certain that everyone got home. I also told the driver to keep what was left over.

    That night everyone got home safely. The driver got a big tip, and I went to bed satisfied.

    语篇解读 本文作者讲述了自己在一次深夜回家时慷慨解囊、热心助人的经历。

           David walked down the street. All he wanted to do was to play basketball with Jim. But his mother told him to return his sister’s books to the library on his way to Jim’s house.

He then turned his attention to the library itself.

    Last summer, Maria and her mother moved from their house in the countryside to building in Chicago. Maria really liked some things about the city, but she missed her house and yard in the countryside.

    One day, Maria was in her flat building when she noticed her neighbor, Mrs. Garcia, carrying a gardening tool and a bag of soil. Maria wondered how Mrs. Garcia was able to garden in the city.

    “My mom used to grow the most delicious vegetables, and I know she misses her garden now that we don't have a yard,” said Maria.

       Mrs. Garcia laughed. “I’ll show you,” she said.  

    Maria thought that Mrs. Garcia would take her to the park, but she took her to the roof (屋顸). When the door opened, Maria was surprised to see rows of flowers and vegetables on the roof.

    Mr. Guo is a teacher from Xi’an. He asked his students to hand in their homework through a QR code(二维码). “We spent an hour or two in class learning how to generate(使产生)the codes, and in the end everything gets easier.” Said Guo. “When students finish the homework, they keep in on WeChat(微信). Then, each student makes his own QR code and gives it to me. So I can check their work everywhere using my computer or telephone.”

    The QR codes can be sent to Mr. Guo by email, QQ and WeChat. When Guo scans(扫描)his students’ QR codes, their homework appears on his phone. He finds that their homework becomes more creative(创新的), with many pictures, music and even videos.

    Guo’s students like the new way and think it is interesting. “We are living in the information age. Many students like to work with computers, which makes learning more fun.” said Tingting, a student of Guo’s.

    “The paper is not easy to keep, but the code is easy to keep and share,” Guo said. “48 It is worth trying to use new technology in education. Education itself is a kind of creation. I don’t want my students to fall behind the times.”

    However, some parents are worried. They are afraid that their children will spend too much time on computers and less time communicating with teachers. But in fact, it’s unnecessary. Students still need to look up information in books and write it down when they do their homework. They only use the code when they hand in their work, which doesn’t take them too much time. Also for teachers, it allows them to check the students’ work at any time. And it’s also an easy way to share homework with other students.

    1. According to the passage, students can keep their homework on ______.

    A. WeChat    B. QQ      C. email     D. blog(博客)

    A. talk with teachers face to face        B. spend too much time on computers or phones

    C. not like the new way of handing in homework    D. find the QR codes too difficult to use

    5. What’ s the main idea of the passage?

    However, he lost his nerve(勇气) when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe() you?”

    The British are known as people who love to stand in line, but a new research shows that the British are only about average (平均数) at waiting politely in a queue(排、队). The French are the best. It's the Germans who don't have a good habit of standing in line. They can't stand to wait for anything. They begin to shout loudly and noisily if the line doesn't seem to be moving fast enough. Sadly it never moves fast enough for them.
         The experts studied 940 people across Europe. They watched secretly as they waited in line
    to get tickets, to order fast food and to wait for the bus. They found people who are good at forming (排成) queues feel that they move along faster. For example, in Britain, the average waiting at a queue needs about three and a half minutes. In Germany or Sweden people hate waiting in line. In fact, people spend double the time as the British in queues. They get to the front of the queue without thinking about others, so they waste others' time.

I didn't realize there was a queue. Do go before me. " People smiled and said. "Oh, that's all right, one more won't matter much. "It was also found in France, where 80
    of the people didn't mind standing in line only if they were treated politely. While in Germany everyone was angry and wore an unhappy face. The expert said, "If only they could learn from the British and the French to think of queuing as an exercise in making the best of an unhappy thing, they might find that the queue then moves faster."
    1. The research shows that the people in _______ are the most polite in standing in line.

    A. Sweden            B. Britain                C. France             D. Germany

    It's said that you are who your friends are.

    The other day I came across a few local musicians and happened to hear them talking:

    "I hate all the terrible pianos in this town. I hate that rubbish they play on the radio. They can't even understand a bit of music."

        "I'm never playing in that club again. Too many drunks(醉鬼) and nobody listens to us."

        But one younger musician said, "There are a few clubs that book me a few nights a month, and I'm trying to find other places to play. I'm also looking forward to booking a few summer festivals this year."

        Attitudes(态度) are important. They're rubbing off on you. If you're always around people who complain about short of work and about other musicians or say bad words about others, and you play the role of a victim(牺牲品), it's possible that you will start to as well. So it's time to take a look at the people you call "friends", as what kind of friends you have decides what kind of life you are going to live.

        This is an easy exercise: Make a list of the people who you often go out with, and simply stop spending time with the people who often say bad words. Set a new standard(标准) for yourself and don't become friends with people who fall below that standard.

        Keep successful people around you and your own chances for success will be much better. Ask them how they do it and learn from them. Ask if they will help you get the work you're looking for, or maybe give you some advice to help you on your career path.

    1. The musicians' words at the beginning are written mainly to show_______.

    A. young people have greater chances of being successful  

    B. people have poor taste in music

    C. people have different attitudes towards the same thing

    D. the musicians live a poor life

    2. The underlined sentence "they'll rubbing off on you" in Paragraph 6. means_______.

    A. they'll push you ahead

    B. they'll have an influence(影响) on you

    C. they'll cover your feelings

    D. they'll help you have success

    3. By taking the exercise mentioned in Paragraph 7, you can_______.

    A. improve a lot in making more friends

    B. plan the time with your friends properly

    C. develop a better relationship with your friends  

    D. come to the right way of making friends

    4. Which of the following would be the best title for this passage?

    A. You are who your friends are.

    B. How to make friendship long.

    C. A friend in need is a friend indeed.

    D. Friends are the most important in one's success.

    A reader wrote to say that she was feeling left out at break because her best friend wasnt around. Heres our advice to her and to all kids who feel lonely sometimes. 

        Its hard when a best friend isnt around maybe because she moved to a different school or a different class. You may feel lonely at break or lunchtime. You want to have new friends, but how do you make them? Maybe it seems that everybody else already has their friends. But remember, theres always room for more friends.

        Start by looking around your classroom think about which kids youd like to play with at break. Look for chances to say hi to them, smile, and be friendly. Offer to share something or express your appreciation(欣赏)to them. Invite someone to play with you or say Do you want to sit here? in the lunchroom. When youre at break, walk over to kids you want to play with and say Hi, can I play, too? or just join in.

    If you find it difficult to do this or if youre feeling shy, ask your teacher to help you make new friends. Teachers are usually pretty good at matching up friends. The best way to make friends is to be a friend. Be kind, be friendly, share, say nice things, offer to helpand pretty soon, youll have one, or two, or even more new friends.

    You might still miss that special best friend. But when you see each other, you can share something you didnt have before she left: You can introduce her to your new friends!

    Leonardo da Vinci, one of the greatest thinkers in the world, began his career as an artist. Very little is known about Leonardo’s early life. He was born in 1452 in the town of Vinci. As a boy, Leonardo showed a great interest in drawing, sculpting and nature.

        However, because Leonardo was born to parents who were not married to each other, he was barred from some studies and jobs. He trained as an artist after moving to Florence with his father in the 1460s. It was an exciting time to be in Florence, one of the cultural capitals of Europe. Leonardo trained with one of the city’s very successful artists, Andrea del Verrocchio. He was a painter, sculptor and gold worker. Verrocchio told his students that they needed to understand the body’s bones and muscles(肌肉) when drawing people.

        Leonardo took the teacher’s advice very seriously. He spent several periods of his life studying the human body using dead bodies. While training as an artist, Leonardo also learned about and improved on quite new painting methods at the time. One was the use of perspective (透视) to show depth. A method called “sfumato” helped to create a cloudy effect to suggest distance. “Chiaroscuro” is a method using light and shade as a painting effect.

        Leonardo’s first known portrait(肖像)now hangs in the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. He made this painting of a young woman named Ginevra de’ Benci around 1474. The woman has a pale face with dark hair. In the distance, Leonardo painted the Italian countryside.

        He soon received attention for his artistic skills. Around 1475 he was asked to draw an angel in Verrocchio’s painting “Baptism of Christ.” One story says that when Verrocchio saw Leonardo’s addition to the painting, he was so amazed by his student’s skill that he said he would never paint again.

    1. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?

    A. Verrocchio thought Leonardo’s work was excellent.

    B. Leonardo thought his teacher’ s advice was wrong.

    C. “Sfumato” is a method to show depth by using light and shade.

    D. “Baptism of Christ” made Leonardo known across the world.

    2. What’s the writer’s purpose of writing the passage?

    A. To introduce one of world’s greatest artist.

    B. To complement Verrocchio as a great teacher

    C. To know more about Leonardo’s early life

    D. To recommend “Ginevra de’ Benci”.

    3. The underlined word “barred” in the second paragraph probably means ________.

    A. chosen   B. protected   C. suffered   D. prevented

    4. Which of the following words can be used to describe Leonardo according to the third paragraph?

    A. Energetic. B. Creative.   C. Confident.  D. Organized.

    5. Which is the correct order of the things that happened to Leonardo?

    a. He finished the painting of Ginevra de’Benci.

    b. He moved to Florence.

    c. He finished drawing an angel in his teacher’s painting.

    d. He began to learn art from Andrea del Verrocchio.

    e. He began to study the dead body.

    A. b, c, e, d, a  B. a, b, c, d, e C. b, d, e, a, c D. b, e, d, a, c
