Passage 1

How men first learnt to invent words is unknown; in other words, the origin of language is a mystery. All we really know is that men, unlike animals, somehow invented certain sounds to express thought and feelings, actions and things, so that they could communicate with each other; and that later they agreed upon certain signs, called letters, which could be combined to present those sounds, and which could be written down. Those sounds, whether spoken or written in letters, we call words.


       The power of words, then, lies in their associations-the thing they bring up before our minds. Words become filled with meaning for us by experience; and the longer we live, the more certain words recall to us the glad and sad events of our past; and the more we read and learn, the more the number of words that mean something increases.


       Great writers are those who not only have great thoughts but also express these thoughts in words which appeal powerfully to our minds and emotions. This charming and telling use of words is what we call literary style. Above all, the real poet is a master of words. He can convey his meaning in words which sing like music and which by their position and association can move men to tears. We should therefore learn to choose our words carefully and use them accurately, or they will make our speech silly and vulgar.


6. The origin of language is _______.  语言的起源是:

  A. a legend handed down from the past           B. a matter that is hidden or secret

  C. a question difficult to answer                            D. a problem not yet solved一个还未解决的问题

7. What is true about words?      关于词汇哪一项是对的?

  A. They are used to express feelings only.        B. They can not be written down.

  C. They are simply sounds.       他们是简单的声音   D. They are mysterious.

8. The real power of words lies in their _______.  文字的真正力量在于其­­____

  A. properties                                                B. characteristics          

C. peculiarity                                               D. representative function  代表功能 

9. By “association”, the author means _______.  作者用“联系性”这个词指

  A. a special quality                                       B. a joining of ideas in the mind头脑中思想的联接

  C. an appearance which is puzzling                 D. a strange feature

10. Which of the following statements about the real poet is NOT true?


A. He is no more than a master of words.        他只不过是一个文字的掌握者。

B. He can convey his ideas in words which sing like music.

  C. He can move men to tears.                         D. His style is always charming.

Passage 2

Shyness is the cause of much unhappiness for a great many people. Shy people are anxious and self-conscious; that is, they are excessively concerned with their own appearance and actions. Worrisome thoughts are constantly occurring in their minds: what kind of impression am I making? Do they like me? Do I sound stupid? Am I wearing unattractive clothes?


       It is obvious that such uncomfortable feelings must negatively affect people. A person’s conception of himself or herself is reflected in the way he or she behaves, and the way a person behaves affects other people’s reactions. In general, the way people think about themselves has a profound effect on all areas of their lives.


       Shy people, having low self-esteem, are likely to be passive and easily influenced by others. They need reassurance that they are doing “the right thing.” Shy people are very sensitive to criticism; they feel it confirms their feelings of inferiority. They also find it difficult to be pleased by compliment with a statement like this one, “You’re just saying that to make me feel good. I know it’s not true.” It is clear that while self-awareness is a healthy quality, overdoing it is harmful.


       Can shyness be completely eliminated, or at least reduced? Fortunately, people can overcome shyness with determined and patient efforts in building self-confidence. Since shyness goes hand in hand with a lack of self-esteems, it is important for people to accept their weakness as well as their strengths.


       Each one of us is a unique, worthwhile individual, interested in our own personal ways. The better we understand ourselves, the easier it becomes to live up to our full potential. Let’s not allow shyness to block our chances for a rich and fulfilling life.


11. What does the author try to prove by citing “what kind of impression am I making?”


  A. Shy people benefit from their caring about their appearance.

B. People’s shyness made them care too much about their appearance and actions.


  C. It’s natural that shy people don’t believe other’s compliments.

  D. Shy people think they are different from others.

12. According to the writer, self-awareness is _______.根据作者的观点,自知之明是一件_______

  A. a good quality              好事                            B. the cause of unhappiness

  C. harmful to people                                     D. a weak point of shy people

13. When being praised, shy people feel that it is _______.当被赞扬的时候,羞怯的人感到这是_______

  A. good                           B. unreal 不真实的 C. very reasonable             D. harmful

14. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?


  A. Shyness helps us to develop our potential.  

B. Shyness enables us to understand ourselves better.

  C. Shyness can block our chances for a rich life. 羞怯能够阻碍我们实现富裕人生的机会。

D. Shyness has nothing to do with lack of self-esteem.

Can Money Buy Happiness?

1.   不同的人对金钱能买来幸福持有不同观点。

2.   我的观点

Can Money Buy Happiness?


Can money buy happiness?The answer varies among people. Some believe that money is the source of happiness, because money provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, and clothes for the needy. While others hold that money is the root of evils, because it is the devil of money that drives a person to lie, cheat, steal and worst of all, to murder.

In my opinion, money is essential to being well-off, but not necessarily to well-being. Happiness is a state of mind, not something that can be bought.
