An eight-year-old child heard her parents talking about her little brother. All she knew was that he was very sick and they had no money left. When she heard her daddy say to her 31 mother with whispered desperation(绝望),“ 32 a miracle(奇迹)can save him now”, the little girl went to her bedroom and took out her piggy bank. She 33 all the change out on the floor and counted it carefully. Then she 34 her way six blocks to the local drugstore(药店).
“And what do you want?” asked the chemist.
“It’s 35 my little brother,” the girl answered back. “He’s really, really sick and I want to buy a 36 . His name is Andrew and he has something 37 growing inside his head and my daddy says only a miracle can save him.”
“We don’t 38 miracles here, child. I’m sorry,” the chemist said, smiling 39 at the little girl.
In the shop was a 40 customer. He stooped (弯腰) down and asked the little girl, “What kind of miracle does your brother 41 ?”“I don’t know,” she replied.“He’s really sick and mommy says he needs 42 . But my daddy can’t pay for it, so I have brought my 43 .”
“How much do you have?” asked the man.

At the beginning of the century there was a big farm called Hollywood Ranch. It was near Los Angeles in California. A few years later Hollywood was one of the most famous places of the world. From the 1910s to the 1950s Hollywood was the film center of the world. Every family knew the names of the film stars Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Bergman and hundreds more.
The reason why people went to Hollywood to make films was the sun. At first people made films in New York on the east coast of the United States. But then they heard about Los Angeles where there are 350 days of sun every year. As they made all the films by sunlight, the west coast was a much better place to work.
Also near Hollywood you can find mountains and sea and desert. They did not have to travel far to make any kind of film.
When TV became popular in the 1960s, Hollywood started making films for television. Then in the 1970s they discovered people still went to cinema to see big expensive films. After twenty years they are still making films in Hollywood and people watch them all over the world.

Does this situation seem familiar to you? Your English is progressing well, the grammar is now familiar, the reading comprehension is no problem, you are communicating quite fluently, but: Listening is STILL a problem! First of all, remember that you are not alone. Listening comprehension is probably the most difficult job for almost all learners of English as a foreign language. The most important thing is to listen as often as possible. The first step is to find listening resources. The Internet is really a useful tool for English students. You can download The RealPlayer from RealMedia.com. The RealPlayer allows you to use the Internet like a radio station.
Once you have begun to listen on a regular basis, you might still be frustrated (懊恼) by limited understanding. What should you do?Here is some of the advice I give my students:
●Accept the fact that you are not going to understand everything.
●Stay relaxed when you do not understand — even if you continue not to understand for a long time.
●Do not translate what you hear into your native language.
●Listen for the general idea of the conversation. Don’t concentrate on detail until you have understood the main ideas.
I remember the problems I had in understanding spoken German when I first went to Germany. In the beginning, when I didn’t understand a word, I insisted on translating it in my mind. This method usually resulted in confusion. Then, after the first six months, I discovered two very important facts. Firstly, translating creates a wall between the listener and the speaker. Secondly, most people repeat themselves constantly. By remaining calm, I noticed that — even if I didn’t pay much attention, I could usually understand what the speaker had said.
55. The best way to improve our listening is to _____.
A. practise as much as possible
B. find as many listening resources as possible
C. use the Internet like a radio station
D. speak naturally and read as much as possible
56. Which of the following is a good habit when listening?
A. Try to understand everything.
B. Try to get the main ideas.
C. Pay much attention to details.
D. Translate each word in your mind.
57. Why did the writer mention his / her experience in Germany?
A. To prove the importance of translating.
B. To show the problems of speaking a foreign language.
C. To tell us the importance of staying calm.
D. To point out an ineffective method of listening.
58. The underlined part “a wall” in the last paragraph refers to “_____”.
A. a communication barrier (障碍)
B. culture shock
C. language understanding
D. a little misunderstandingC
This story took place a long time ago. But it has been repeated time and time again. Everyone is moved by the true story.
An old man was knocked down by a car and was taken to hospital. He was badly hurt, and during his few returns to consciousness(知觉), he repeatedly called for his son. None knew where his son was. A dirty letter was found in his pockets. The nurse learned that his son was a soldier in North Carolina.
The hospital called the Red Cross office to find the young man. The young soldier was rushed to the airport in time to catch the plane.
It was evening when the young soldier walked into the hospital. A nurse took him to the bedsides of the old man. “Your son is here,” she said to the old man. She had to repeat the words several times before the old man’s eyes opened. He dimly(模糊地) saw the young man and got great comfort. He reached out his hand. The soldier held the old man’s hand and offered words of hope. All through the night the young soldier sat beside the bed. The nurse offered to watch instead of him for a while, he refused.
At dawn, the old man died. The nurse started to comfort him but the soldier asked her, “Who was that old man?” “He was your father,” she answered. “No, he wasn’t. I never saw him before. I knew right away there was a mistake, but I also knew he needed his son, and his son just wasn’t here. I realized I was needed. So I stayed.”
59.What is true about the old man?

In the United States, it is not customary to telephone someone very early in the morning. If you telephone him early in the day, while he is shaving or having breakfast, the time of the call shows that the matter is very important and requires immediate attention. The same meaning is attached to telephone calls made after 11:00 p.m. If someone receives a call during sleeping hours, he assumes it s a matter of life and death. The time chosen for the call communications is important.
In social life, time plays a very important part. In the U.S.A. guests tend to feel they are not highly regarded if the attention to a dinner party is extended only three or four days before the party date. But it is not true in all countries. In other areas of the world, it may be considered foolish to make an appointment too far in advance because plans which are made for a date more than a week away tend to be forgotten. The meaning of time differs in different parts of the world. Thus, misunderstandings arise between people from cultures that treat time differently. Promptness (准时) is valued highly in American life, for example. If people are not prompt, they may be regarded as impolite or not fully responsible. In the U.S. no one would think of keeping a business friend waiting for an hour. It would be too impolite. A person who is 5 minutes late is expected to make a short apology. If he is less than 5 minutes late, he will say a few words of explanation, though perhaps he will not complete the sentence.62. “The same meaning is attached to telephone calls after 11:00p.m.”Here “attached” means _____.
A. taken B. drawn C. given D. shown

C. It is best for one to make telephone calls at midnight because it costs much less.

One Possible Version:
How are you? You asked me in your last letter about my plan for the coming summer vacation. I am sorry that I didn’t t reply without delay.
How I wish I had read and replied to your email as soon as I received it. However, I was busy preparing for my final exam at that time, which is important for me. As a result, I had no choice but to completely focus on my study, for which I am very sorry. I hope you can understand me.
During the holiday, I am going to do a part-time job. On the one hand, I can earn some money to reduce the burden of my family. On the other hand, I can accumulate the social experience, which does good to my future life. At the same time, I will not forget to go over my lesson. I will spend an instructive holiday. How will you spend your holiday? I hope you have a good time.
These are my plans for the summer vacation. What’s yours? I am looking forward to your earliest reply.
Best wishes !
