When I moved to Senegal in 2007 to work for a charity organization，the first thing I did was to hit the streets．Dakar，the capital，leans out into warm Atlantic wind．It has a relaxing atmosphere that makes it a favorite destination．
Not far from the city center，it also has one of Africa’s biggest slums(贫民区)and its share of beggars．Street kids would tail me，begging．During a previous trip to Senegal，I was once cheated by a man．I'd wondered for years whether to give money to beggars in West Africa．
Near my apartment，I passed a group of young men in wheelchairs whom I took to be beggars．Head down，I walked by them quickly．As the months went by，I'd often come across them．I’d often see them at an outdoor basketball court near nay office．They’d sit on the ground with their chairs upside down，tightening and adjusting wheels，waiting until the other guys left so they could play．
I'd stay and watch them warm up．They played with speed，rolling down the court as fast as I could run．A few weeks later I introduced myself to them with the help of Mafall，who was one of the guys and could speak a little French．I started spending more time with them and eventually became something like an assistant coach．
The players quickly grew on me．I started referring to them as“my guys”to my colleagues．It was the most fun I'd had since I got to Dakar．Life on the street had made my players strong and they didn’t back down easily．I was proud of them．
Toward the end of the season，Mafall invited me to where he lived—found many of the players there，with their wives and children．I learned that most of them were born with disabilities．As Mafall and I chatted．I knew something had changed．They were no longer beggars．They were basketball players，my guys，and my friends．
24．It can be inferred from the text that the disabled young men_________．
A．used to beg in the streets B．often helped the local charity．
C．were not friendly toward foreigners D．played basketball as well as normal guys.
25．Why did the writer walk by the young men with head down?
A．To be afraid of being recognized by them．
B．To prevent himself from being stolen．
C．To be afraid of being cheated by them．
D．To be careful enough to find his way home．
26．Why did the author call the disabled young men“my guys”?
A．They often played tricks on the author．
B．They were loved by the author．
C．They used to cheat others when begging．
D．They always quarreled while training．
27．What is the whole text mainly about?
A．The author refused to be cheated by beggars in Dakar．
B．The author helped the locals in Senegal out of poverty．
C．The author coached the young men in Senegal to play basketbal1．
D．The author helped to change some disabled young men in Dakar．
With few exceptions，“extreme”is something you typically want to avoid．Consider，for example，extreme weather events．Floods，drought，forest fires，and heat waves do great damage to our planet and，often，our economy．
Now a new report that analyzed extreme weather events has reached a depressing(but unsurprising)conclusion：They’re happening more frequently．But the news isn’t all bad—we may be getting better at lessening their economic influence．
In 2013，the European Academies’Science Advisory Council(EASAC)released(发布)a study titled“Trends in Extreme Weather Events in Europe．”Recently EASAC has shared an update to that study that combines data from 2013 through 2017．
The data indicate that extreme weather events were happening much more frequently across the globe and they’re not likely to get less frequent anytime soon．
The updated report also looked at potential drivers of these extreme weather events，including the weakened Gulf Stream，which has slowed down as the planet becomes warm，and some scientists are concerned that it could shut down altogether，which would dramatically alter Europe’s climate．The researchers behind this study can’t tell if it would ever shut down completely，but they suggest it’s best to watch it and see．
Tile researchers also noted the rising economic costs of events like these．For example，in 1980．North America lost $10 billion to thunderstorms．In 2015，that figure had reached nearly $20 billion．But in Europe，though river floods have become more frequent，those financial losses are holding steady，not rising．
This may be a tiny bit of good news in a rising sea of bad．But in fact，those costs might show that countries have carried out more protective measures．That means it might be possible to successfully“climate proof”our populated areas to limit the influence of extreme weather events，though it’s expensive，and far from safe．
28．Which of the following statements is true?
A．EASAC is devoted to the study of the extreme weather tendency in Europe．
B．The frequency of the extreme weather events is becoming lower and lower．
C．Extreme weather events have a bad influence on our earth except economy．
D．Scientists are certain that the weakened Gulf Stream will return to normal soon．
29．What does the underlined word“alter”in the fifth paragraph refer to?
A．Improve． B．Better． C．Change． D．Protect．
30．Why doesn’t Europe suffer from more economic losses during the floods?
A．Because the floods have become less frequent．
B．Because the floods eventually flow into the sea．
C．Because the United States provides them with a lot of financial aid．
D．Because many European countries have taken effective actions in advance．
31．What is the author’s attitude toward fighting against the extreme climate change?
A．Doubtful． B．Positive． C．Unconcerned． D．Disapproval．
Getting stitched(缝合)up by Dr．Robot may one day be reality．Scientists have created a robotic system which did just that in living animals without a real doctor pulling，the strings．Much like engineers are designing self-driving cars，the medical research is part of a move toward autonomous surgical robots，removing the surgeon’s hands from certain tasks that a machine might perform all by itself．
Doctors wouldn’t leave the bedside they’re supposed to watch，plus they’d handle the rest of the surgery. In small tests using pigs，the robotic arm performed at least as well，and in some cases a bit better，as some competing surgeons in stitching together intestinal(肠的)tissue．“The purpose wasn’t to replace surgeons，”said Dr．Kim who led the project．“If you have all intelligent tool that works with a surgeon，can it improve the outcome? That’s what we have done．”
If you’ve heard about machines like the popular Da Vinci system，you might think robots already are operating．Not really．Today many hospitals offer，robot-assisted surgery where surgeons use the machinery as tools that they control by hand，typically，to operate through tiny openings in the body．But robot-assisted surgery has been controversial，as some studies have shown it can bring higher costs without better outcomes．
Kim’s team at Children’s Sheikh Zayed Institute invented the new STAR system—it stands for Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot—works sort of like a programmable sewing machine．They added sensors to help guide each stitch and tell how tightly to pull．But the approach wasn’t perfect．In the living animals，the robot took much longer and made a few stitching mistakes while the surgeon sewing by hand made none．Kim said the robot can be sped up．Fie hopes to begin human studies in two or three years．
32．What’s the best title for the text?
A．A new robotic system
B．A new-style way of stitching
C．The newly-designed driverless vehicles
D．Robot surgeons one step closer to reality
33．What will surgeons do when Dr．Robot is used in surgery?
A．They can help pull the strings． B．They rest at the bedside．
C．They join in when necessary． D．They perform other surgery．
34．Some people are against using robots in surgery probably because_________．
A．they can be out of control B．they will take shorter time
C．they may be expensive to use D．they are likely to cause great pain
35．What can we infer from the text?
A．Dr．Robot can take the place of surgeons．
B．Dr．Robot will be developed at a fast pace．
C．Dr．Robot has been tested with human trials．
D．Dr．Robot can free doctors’hands in the operation．
Every person needs to be part of a family，however it is constructed and whatever it consists of．Doing your bit to help keep the family happy is just one part of the bigger whole of having a family stay together．
36 It is very important that you let them know about．your life so that they can understand you，congratulate or empathize with you and generally know what’s going on in you’life．In turn，it is equally important that you know about their lives too，so that they feel understood，supported and can be reassured that they are not alone．
Take interest in the interests of each of your family members． 37 Ask them how their hobbies，their interests or their work is going．Be an active listener when they tell you and learn what you can．
Show sincere concern about your family members． 38 If you love them，then tell them that you love them．If you care about them，tell them this．Go out of your way to remind each family member what glues you all together love care and support．
Surprise your family members sometimes．You can do this caring and noticing the details and helping them out without them asking you． 39
Try small gestures to help．Even the smallest things count．With a simple text or a brief phone call，you can make someone’s day． 40 When you know that someone is going through a hard time，call or text and be with them at their time of need like you would like them to do for you．
A．Live together with your family as long as possible．
B．Do not keep your feelings bottled up．
C．Talk to your family members at the end of the day．
D．Learn what they love doing and ask questions about it．
E．Just make sure you leave a positive message that will leave them feeling happy．
F．Make dinner for them，prepare a trip somewhere for them or do a chore they dislike doing．
G．Do fun activities with them，such as going for walks together，visiting museums and so on．

Finally，around 9 p．m，we stopped at a gas station to 42 the car．My husband asked for a phone book and told the cashier at the 43 that we were trying to find a motel．He tried for 15 minutes，but with no luck．Another clerk，Linda，said her family lived nearby and would be happy if we spent the 44 at her home．
My husband was 45 by her kind offer and said we had two kids 46 in the car．47 she had to stick to her post at the gas station till midnight，she called her son to 48 us．Soon a truck arrived and we 49 it．
When we reached their home，her husband 50 us．He took out two sleeping bags for the children．He invited us to have coffee and chat 51 we waited for his wife．She came past 12 p．m．We asked if we could slip away in the morning so as not to 52 them．They said we were now 53 and we would have to have breakfast with them．
Next morning，we woke up to a table set for breakfast．They’d made a mountain of pancakes and bacon．Linda sent her son to get 54 milk from the neighbour’s farm．When we were leaving after breakfast，my husband asked if he could offer some 55 ．
They refused and 56 that everything was free．We left 57 touched by their spirit of hospitality．We were amazed that they would 58 a family of total strangers from a different country．We kept in 59 for many years，and also invited them to our home．In recent years，we have lost contact， 60 have never forgotten their kindness．

There are many differences between China and India when it comes to how yoga 65 (practise)． 66 people focus on are meditation(冥想)and breathing exercises in India，but in China most of the time people just focus on physical exercise．Locations 67 practice takes place tend to be different as well，since Indian people tend to practise yoga outside in the mornings while most Chinese practise inside gyms and studios．Indians start practising yoga at a very young age，so their bodies are even 68 (strong)．But in China，people start at an older age，so they should pay more attention to safety．Like many athletic 69 (activity)，yoga comes with some risk．As 70 (it)popularity has gradually risen，so has the number of yoga—related injuries．

书面表达(One possible version)：
One possible version:
I am Li Hua, a senior three student from China. I’m writing to apply for the position as a volunteer teacher to teach Chinese in the coming summer vacation.
I’ll graduate from Senior high this summer and I’ll stay in England from July 7th to the end of August. As you know, I’m from China and I’m perfectly confident of my Chinese level. What’s more, I used to be a volunteer teacher and I’m sure my previous volunteering experience will qualify me for the job. More importantly, I’m good at English, which will enable me to communicate freely with the Chinese learners.
I would be grateful if you can offer me the chance. Looking forward to your early reply.
M: I’m so bored. I have nothing to do at work. I just surf the Internet all day long.
W: Damn! I’m so busy at work and it’s driving me crazy. I really wish I had your job.
W: So, how long have you been driving buses?
M. I’ve been driving this bus for only three months.
W: Do you enjoy being a bus driver?
M: Not really.
M: Are you still working in a bar on the weekend?
W: That’s right. But I’m not working as a waitress any more. Now I’m working at the cash register.
M: Lucky you.
M: Do you have any English dictionaries?
W: Yes, just over there. Only two copies are left.
M: I’d like to see some English textbooks, too. Do you have any?
W: Yes, they are at a discount.
M: So how is your lovely pet dog?
W: It really makes me upset.
M: What happened?
W: It always makes loud noises at midnight. Whenever I fall asleep, it always barks.
M. I would like to make a hotel reservation.
W: What day will you arrive?
M. I will arrive on May 14th.
W: How long will you stay?
M: I need the room for 3 nights.
W: How many people will stay in the room?
M: I will stay in the room alone.
W: Would you like a smoking or non-smoking room?
M: I need a non-smoking room.
W: We have booked a room for you. Please be sure to arrive before 4: 00 pm.
M: What did you buy at the market?
W: I bought some special local products.
M: You seem to have bought the whole market!
W: Yes. I really wanted to do so. I love those handicrafts, especially the paper-cuts.
M: Paper-cuts are all hand-made. Let me see the paper-cuts you bought. Oh, they are all animals.
W: Aren’t animals the main content of Chinese paper-cuts?
M: All right. Animals are the most common theme in paper-cuts. But there are other themes.
W: I will buy some tomorrow.
M: Why do you want to buy so many?
W: Because I want to send them to my friends.
W: Hey, Matt! What are you doing here?
M: I called your house. And your brother told me you’d be here. Nice jacket.
W: Thanks. It’s a present from the baseball team.
M: They’re going to miss you. You’re their star player.
W: I wasn’t today. We lost, twenty-two to two.
M: Ouch. I think we need to have a talk.
W: Look, if it’s about my decision to go to New York, I’m not going to change my mind.
M. I realize that.
W: But I’ll be back to visit…and you can come and see me.
M. No, let’s not kid ourselves. Four years in New York will pretty much end our relationship.
W: Lots of people have long-distance relationships.
M: Not me. I’m not a long-distance kind of guy. All our friends are getting married. They’re having kids. I thought we were the next.
W. Eric, how long will you be in China?
M: I don’t know. Well, my contract here is for one year, and I don’t know what I should do after that. Maybe going around for a while.
W: Well, have you ever thought about learning some Chinese?
M: Actually, I am learning that now. But it’s too hard for me. The four tones really drive me mad.
W: Don’t worry. All things are difficult before they are easy.
M: You hit the nail right on the head.
W: Well, are you interested in the language-exchange program?
M: What is it?
W. I teach you Chinese, and in exchange you teach me English.
M: Awesome. I’ve been giving this a lot of thought. When can we do this?
W: How about this Sunday?
M: OK. Cool.
W: Good. I’ll give you a call tonight and let you know the details.
M: No problem.
M: French radio stations are angry about a possible new government rule. DJs are already unhappy because they have to make sure that 40 per cent of the songs they play are in French. Radio bosses say the new rule will make French people switch to music stream services instead of listening to the radio to listen to American or British songs. France says the new law is to protect its culture from American and British influences. It wants to stop the English language from getting deeper into French culture. The French music industry says the new law is necessary for the French language and French music. French musicians say the law is important to protect French musicians. One musician said, “It remains important for French artists to have the chance of making a career out of music.
