Passage 1(作业1)

Lily is 70 years old and she takes care of her 91-year-old mother. She told us about caring for her mother.

I wake up early every day, it’s usually about 6.30 am, and wait until I hear Tilly, my mum, moving about. Then I make her a cup of tea. At about half past seven she gets up and we have breakfast together. We normally just have toast, but on Sundays we always have bacon and eggs. After breakfast she reads the newspaper, then she sits by the window and waves to the neighbours as they walk by.

She hardly ever goes out but she is very proud of her personal appearance, so she goes to the hairdresser once a month.

She doesn’t like being left on her own for very long, so I always arrange for a neighbour to come and sit with her when I go out. Now and again, my friend and neighbour, Joan, comes to spend the day with her, and I can go and have lunch with another friend, May, who lives in town.

I have a brother, Syd. He comes to stay two or three times a year. He is very good and keeps in touch, but he lives 300 miles away. Once a year, he collects mum and takes her to stay with him in London for a week. She doesn’t really like going because it’s a long journey, but I need the rest.

Sally, the nurse, comes to see mum regularly. My next-door neighbour, Jack, often calls in.  In the evening we usually watch TV and we sometimes play cards. Mum is fantastic for her age. But I can never decide to go anywhere spontaneously. I always have to plan it, so I feel a bit trapped. But what is the alternative? An old people’s home? I couldn’t do that to my mother.

1. Lily wakes before her mother.

2. Joan sometimes spends the day with Lily’s mother.

3. Tilly is satisfied with her hairdresser.

4. Lily’s brother comes to visit every three weeks.

5. Lily and her mother play cards more than they watch TV.

Passage 2(unit6)

My grandfather was a very interesting man. He died when I was 11, but I remember he used to tell me stories about his early life. He told me one about how he used to race dogs. They raced greyhound, a very fast type of dog. My grandfather had a dog that was very fast and usually won the races. The men used to bet on the dogs and try to win money. One day before a race, a friend of my grandfather’s suggested that they bet on a different dog and make my grandfather’s dog lose the race. My grandfather had no job, so this seemed an easy way to make money. On the day of the race, my grandfather and his friend fed the dog lots of cakes so it wouldn’t want to run. Then they took it for a long walk so it was tired. They bet on another dog, but when the race was run, my grandfather’s dog won anyway, so they lost all their money and didn’t win anything!

Passage 3(作业2/11年1月)

The ancient Olympic Games were part of a religious festival in honour of the Greek god Zeus, the father of all Greek gods and goddesses. The festival and games were held in Olympia, a religious sanctuary. The athletes came to Olympia from all parts of the Greek world, from as far as Spain in the west and Turkey in the east.

The ancient Olympic Games began in the year 776 BC when Koroibos, a cook from the city of Elis, won a 200-metre-long race. They took place for a period of 617 years until the last games were held in AD 393.

In the ancient games, athletes received prizes worth large amounts of money. In fact the word “ athlete ” is an ancient Greek word, meaning “ one who competes for a prize ”. Although women did not compete in the games, there was a separate festival held at the same time in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus. At this festival unmarried girls competed in foot races.

The marathon was not an event of the ancient Olympic Games. The marathon is a modern event that was first introduced in the Olympic Games in 1896. It was named after a village called Marathon where the Persians were defeated by a small Greek army. The news of the victory was brought to Athens by soldier, who ran the 26 miles from the village of Marathon to the capital. 26 miles was therefore adopted as the distance of the modern marathon race.

The Olympic flag was introduced in 1908 and carries the symbol of five linked rings. Which represent the five continents – Africa, America, Asia, Australasia and Europe. The Olympic flame was first carried in the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. There was no torch relay in the ancient Olympic Games. The first torch relay in the modern Olympic Games was staged in Berlin in 1936.

1. The ancient Greeks held the first Olympic Games in 617 BC.

2. The ancient Greeks held the Olympic Games for 393 years.

3. They did not allow women to compete in the ancient Olympic Games.

4. They first used the Olympic flag in 1908.

5. Both the Olympic Games and the Marathon Race are very popular for old and young people in many countries of the world.

Passage 4

“Get up, the water is coming.” Yan Xinzhi, director of the neighborhood committee of Chaoyang Street, Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi Province, would knock at the door of every household at midnight to have people collect water; otherwise, the tap water would soon run dry when everyone in the city got up and joined the “water rush” in the morning. Yan, an elderly lady about 60, had served as committee director for more than 20 years; her major work was to rouse her neighbors from their sleep to get water. As time went by, residents could not go to sleep before one o’clock in the morning.

Chaoyang Street was not the only street in Taiyuan that lacked water, and Taiyuan was not the only city in China with water in short supply.

Niu Maosheng, Minister of Water Resources, told China Today that more than 300 cities nationwide lack water; in 108 cities the situation has become critical. The annual deficit of water has reached 6 billion cubic meters, leading to a loss of RMB 200 billion (approximately US $24 billion) in industrial output.

1.    As neighborhood committee director, the major part of Yan Xinzhi’s job was to wake up her neighbors at midnight to get water.

2.    The passage reveals that all the cities in China suffer from water shortage.

3.    The passage is written by a water expert.

4. The lack of water has lead to a loss of US $24 billion in industrial output.

5. Xi’an is another city with water in short supply.

Passage 5

People who cannot tell all colors apart are said to be color blind. Most color-blind people can see yellow and blues, but confuse reds with greens. It is very rare for a person to be blind to all colors, but they may see everything in shades of black, white, and gray.

It is interesting to note that many color-blind people don’t even realize that they are color-blind. They don’t know that the colors they are seeing and naming are not the actual colors that people with normal vision can see. This can be particularly dangerous when a color-blind person confuses the red and green of a traffic light.

Color blindness is thought to be inherited (遗传). And although doctors have thought up tests to determine(测定)color blindness, there is no cure to treatment for it.

1.    A color-blind person can tell correctly red and green.                               

2.    Many color-blind people are unaware (没意识到) that they are color-blind.

3.    It’s especially dangerous for a color-blind person to cross a street when there are no traffic lights at the cross of the streets.

4.    A person who is color-blind is not allowed to drive.

5.    Up to now, doctors have found a way to free a person from his color blindness.

Passage 6

Benjamin Disraeli, the famous nineteenth century prime minister, said, “London is not a city, it is a nation.” Today this is an understatement; London, with its vast range of different ethnic groups, is a world.

Certainly, London is the most culturally diverse city in the world. The city was founded by the Romans and since then new arrivals have constantly added to its character and prosperity. 

Within 10 years 40% of Londoners will be from ethnic minority groups, including the growing number of Londoners of mixed ethnic origin, but most of them will have been born in Britain. Children of Caribbean-Chinese marriages will go to school with children of Russian-Irish couples. None of them will be English, but all of them will be Londoners.

Most of Britain's ethnic minority residents live in the capital, speaking over 300 languages. Nearly all of the African population and many of the Caribbean population of Britain live in London (83% and 58% respectively); 39% of the Chinese population of Britain and 36% of the Asian population of Britain live in London. The largest migrant community is from the Irish Republic with 256,000 people, 3.8% of the total population of London.

There are an estimated 330,000 refugees and asylum seekers living in London, with most recent arrivals coming from Eastern Europe, North Africa and Kurdistan.

Young people, in particular, are skilled at dealing with a large number of different and hybrid cultures. They themselves often have several different ethnic identities since their parents and grandparents may come from several different backgrounds, and their friends and partners do also. They are “skilled cross-cultural travelers” without leaving their home-town.

1. London is a nation.

2. The city of London was founded by the Romans.

3. All African population live in London.

4. 39% of the total population of London are Chinese.

5. Old people are also “skilled cross-cultural travelers”.

Passage 12(模拟试题2)

The police in england are not normally armed, and if they think or know that someone has a firearm and may be going to commit an offence, then they have a team of special officers, who carry fire arms.

The police use the dogs when a person has run away and may be hidden in a building or in the countryside. The dog can attack the criminal and bite him so that the police don’t have to shoot them and he is not killed. In that way the police can avoid using guns and avoid shooting the criminal.

All of the dogs in the police force actually stay at home with their handler, so when the policeman finished work he takes the dog home with himself. He is provided with a kennel that stays in the garden and all food. The dogs are not aggressive and they can live with a family quite happily. They do learn how to relax as human beings do when off duty, and become quite excited about working when they’re on duty. It’s quite interesting to see that. My dog knows when it’s working and when it’s not working generally by whether I’m wearing my uniform or not. My dog barks an awful lot when I’m wearing my uniform because he’s very excited.
