    These days,North Kickapoo Street in Shawnee,Oklahoma,is a four-lane road leading  out to the highway,and lined with all kinds of places to eat and shop.But in the mid-1950s,it was just a gravel(砂砾)country road,the perfect place for our daddies 10 leach us how to drive.
    We didn’t have driver’s education at Shawnee High Schoo1.We were on our own.Mom  took me to pick up an instruction handbook.I was the oldest of my friends,so we were  excited at the prospect of a whole new world opening up.We’d have freedom to get around.Best of all,we could go to the Starlite Drive—In theater on 50-cents-a-carload night.We’d have it made.
    Mom let me back our 1949 Ford out of the garage a few times to get used to the clutch  (离合器)and gearshift(变速排挡杆).I got familiar with the motion but was hardly ready for my road lest.
    Finally,the day came for Daddy to give me a real lesson.He drove out to the end of the paved section of Kickapoo Street and across to where the gravel started.My daddy had come from a family of 10,and they had been farmers in a poor area in Oklahoma.There was only one way to do things,and that was the right way.
    Praises were rare,so when he expressed his approval it was special.I didn’t want to  experience his glare if I ground the clutch or the car shook as I tried to get it going.
    I took a deep breath,slowly let out the clutch,pushed the stick into second gear,eased down the road,and then carefully moved into third gear.He had me stop and repeat the procedure two or three more times until I came to the end of the section.I was feeling pretty good as I came to a stop and looked to Daddy for approval.
    He glared at me and then barked,“You’ve been driving,haven’t you?”
    He must have thought I’d been practicing in somebody else’s car.I quickly explained that my training was all done on the Ford.
    That was 60 years ago.I can still see the nod he gave me when he said,“Well,you did a good job.”
24.How did the author learn to drive at the beginning?
A.He was taught by his mother.
B.He was taught at Shawnee High Schoo1.
C.He learned to drive with the help of his father.
D.He taught himself by an instruction handbook.
25.While Daddy was teaching him,the author operated carefully to__________.
A.pass the road test      B.show his driving skill
C.avoid making him angry   D.stop the car being damaged 
26.Why did Daddy glare at the author when he stopped?
A.He thought he had been cheated.
B.Something was wrong with the car.
C.He was disappointed at his son’s driving skill.
D.The son didn’t operate properly while driving.
27.Which of the following best describes Daddy’s character?
A.Untalkative.    B.Strict.    C.Bad-tempered.  D.Helpful.
C
The Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans has added an unconventional course to its curriculum.Medical students can now take cooking classes in addition to their usual training.This is intended to improve doctors’nutritional knowledge and encourage them to use food to prevent or cure illnesses.
According to a survey,most medical students in the U.S.receive on average 20 hours of nutritional education throughout their entire education.This is an extremely low number,especially when one considers that diet is at the core(核心)of many modern Western diseases.From Type 2 diabetes,heart disease,reflux to obesity,allergies,depression and arthritis,eating the right foods can go a long way towards recovery,while significantly reducing dependency on medicinal drugs.
A big part of the problem is that nutritional guidelines in North America are vague,impractical,and difficult to apply.Everyone,from doctors to schoolchildren,learns about specific nutrients and percentages of recommended daily intakes,but that doesn’t translate easily to the grocery store.
    Training doctors to cook,however,takes nutritional education to a whole new level.Not only will doctors be able to explain which foods are best to eat,but they will also understand how to prepare them.Tulane medical students prepare for teaching future patients by offering free cooking classes to New Orleans residents—a mutually beneficial arrangement for everyone who shares that food.
    Fortunately,the model seems to be catching on.Already two other medical schools have licensed the curriculum and are adding it to their courses.Tulane also offers nutritional training for health—focused chefs from a nearby cooking school,which makes a lot of sense.After a11,with the frequency with which North Americans eat out,we could all benefit from chefs who know how to balance nutrition with great taste.
28.What does the author want to tell us by listing the diseases in Paragraph 2?
A.Proper diets help cure them.     B.Proper diets can replace drugs.
C.They are difficult to treat.  D.They are typical western diseases.
29.What’s the author’s attitude towards the present nutritional guidelines in America?
A.Amazed.    B.Confused.    C.Dissatisfied.  D.Interested.
30.What can we know about the course from the 1ast paragraph?
A.It will benefit chefs.     B.It is becoming popular.
C.It has a long way to go.  D.It encourages eating out.
31.Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A.Take a Cooking Course     B.Learn to Be a Good Doctor
C.Live Your Life to the Full  D.Let Food Be Your Medicine
D
    Punks,Ravers,Mods and Teddy Boys.No,these aren’t some hot new bands,but the names of a number of British youth subcultures from the last 70 years.Youth Club,a UK not-for-profit organization,released a book earlier this year celebrating many different subcultures from throughout Britain’s recent history.
    “A catalyst(催化剂)for creativity on the worldwide stage,British youth culture movements from the Teddy Boys of the 1950s to the Grime Scene of the 2000s continue to play a pioneering role in music,fashion and creativity across he globe,” it wrote on its website.
    These subcultures were traditionally a way for young people to show their personalities to others.Walking around London in the 1970s would have meant seeing dozens of young“punks”—people dressed in ripped denim,leather jackets,body piercings and with brightly-dyed hair—on the streets.And in the 90s,“ravers”were young people who threw a11-night parties in abandoned buildings or car parks.
    So,what was the reason behind these subcultures?
    “On both sides of the Atlantic,more and more young disappointed teenagers were looking for an escape from the boredom and restrictions of society,”wrote Ian Youngs,BBC entertainment reporter.“Unemployment,racial tensions and social changes added fuel to their fires.”
Youth subcultures have almost disappeared in the West.Some experts believe the reason for this is the instant and low-priced availability of music and clothing in the Internet age.“Fashion and music,they’re much cheaper and they’re much faster today,”Ruth Adams,a culture lecturer at King’s College London told The Guardian.
“When I was a teenager,you had to stick to one type of music or fashion,because it cost more money.Now,it's all a bit vaguer,”she said,believing that it's harder to figure out someone’s personality or music tastes nowadays just by looking at them.
Despite this,Adams believes that today’s young people are still finding their own way to express themselves,but in a more modern way.“It’s certainly happening online,”she said.“It’s a lot easier to use personas(伪装)online just by showcasing certain types of mysterious knowledge.”
32.What do we know about British youth subcultures?
A.They date back to the 1970s.
B.They were started by Youth Club.
C.They are contemporary culture movements.
D.They were a way for youths to express themselves.
33.What contributed to the appearance of these youth subcultures?
A.The easy access to music and clothing.   
B.Young people’s desire for freedom and fun.
C.The political pressure young people suffered.
D.Young people’s longing for fame and wealth.
34.What does the underlined word“this”in Paragraph 6 probably refer to?
A.The faster and cheaper music.
B.The instant and low-priced fashion.
C.The disappearance of youth subcultures.
D.The availability of music and clothing.
35.Which of the following would Ruth Adams probably agree with?
A.Young people are less willing to express themselves.
B.Young people are less interested in music and fashion.
C.Music and fashion develop too fast for young people to follow.
D.The Internet makes it harder to tell the young’s real personalities.

    根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。
Practical Ways to Show Respect for a Friend
    ●Show respect for their life choices and decisions
    Accept that people aren’t always going to be just like you.They will make different life choices,have different views on politics and religion,and act differently in many ways.This doesn’t mean they can’t be your friend.  36  
●Give them the benefit of the doubt
    37  If you’re in doubt about something,ask your friend.Be respectful and give them the benefit of the doubt when you don’t do.’This alone will help you stay in their good graces(好感).
    ●Give friends your full attention
One of the best ways to show respect for someone is to listen to them fully.Allow them to pause,convey nonverbal communication clues,collect their thoughts,and get it all out.Too often friends listen with half an ear or jump in the minute their friend pauses with an even worse story. 38  When your friend is talking,pay attention.
●  39 
Treat your friends respectfully when you argue with them.Make your friendship a safe place by not embarrassing your friend or expressing your private disagreements in front of other people.Be publicly supportive and kind to your friends so they know you value your friendship with them.   
    ●Show up,be there,and do what you say you’re going to do
    40  So just show your friend the best kind of respect by being on time,keeping promises,and being the one friend they can always count on.That’s the way to truly show respect.
    A.Assumptions can be a dangerous thing.
    B.Consider your friendship a precious gift.
    C.This type of behavior is very disrespectful.
    D.Tell your friends what you think about them directly.
    E.In fact,you can almost do nothing but accept the differences.
    F.It means that you’11 need to take a step back,reserve judgment,and show respect.
    G.No one likes an unreliable friend who says they’11 be there and then doesn’t show.

W: Should I take a taxi or a bus to the town center?

M: Good morning. I’d like to buy a cake.
W: No problem, sir. We have many cakes here. What size would you like?
M: Well, it’s for my co-worker’s birthday. There are fourteen people in the office.
W: Well, this cake feeds twelve people, and this one behind it feeds twenty.
M: I’ll take the bigger one… It’s better to have too much than not enough.
W: Sounds good. Do you want it delivered?
M: Yes. Can you deliver it to my office? The birthday party will be after work, at a park near the office.

M: Hello, I heard from my friend that you carry hard-to-find books. He strongly recommended your bookstore for these books. Do you carry a copy of Secret signed by the author?
W: Yes, I know the title, but only one is available now, and it’s not signed. If you need it soon, I recommend buying that. Otherwise, I can search online to find a signed copy. It could take some time, though, and of course, it will cost more.
M: I understand that, but what really matters is the signature. I’m giving my father the book as a gift. He was a fan of the author’s.
W: I see. If you give me your phone number, I’ll inform you when I find something.

M: Hi, Grandma! I’m calling to say happy birthday. I hope you’re having a good day.
W: Thank you, Michael! It’s great to hear from you. It’s been a while since we’ve talked.
M: I know, Grandma. I’m sorry. I’ve been so busy with school and activities lately. I’m captain of the basketball team this year. And I’m also applying to colleges for next fall.
W: Oh, Michael, I’m so proud of you! You’re a very accomplished young man. Do you know where you want to go to college?
M: I really want to go to the University of Southern California, but they might not let me in! It’s a very good school, and it’s very difficult to be accepted there.
W: Well, I’m sure they will take you, honey. You’re a special young man. You’ve really made your grandfather and me so proud.

W: I can help the next person in line.
M: That’s me. Hi! I need to mail this package.
W: Okay, great. Where is it going?
M: It’s going to St. Louis, Missouri. And I need it to get there as fast as possible. It’s my mother’s birthday present, and her birthday is tomorrow. I don’t want it to be late.
W: Okay, sir. I can do that. We’ll have to deliver it overnight, which will cost extra money. Let’s see…it will be $32.50 to get the package there tomorrow. Will you pay with a credit card or cash?
M: I have cash. And please mark “FRAGILE” on the box.
W: What is in here, sir? Is there anything dangerous? Any liquids or chemicals?
M: No, there is just a box of chocolates and a cup. But I don’t want the cup to break.
W: Okay, sir. We will have it leaving Atlanta and arriving in St. Louis tomorrow, by way of Memphis. Here’s your receipt, and have a great day!

    Have you heard of Jane Goodall? She is a famous scientist who lived with and studied chimpanzees for many years. A chimpanzee is an intelligent African animal that is like a large monkey without a tail. When Jane was young, her father gave her a toy chimpanzee. And she became interested in these animals. In 1957, her love for animals led her to call Dr. Louis Leakey, a famous scientist, who offered her a job as an assistant. Even though she had no college degree, he asked her to become a researcher. She lived with the chimpanzees for over thirty years and wrote down what they did. She published her research. Some people criticized her research. They said she should have given the chimpanzees numbers instead of names. After she left the jungle, she became interested in saving the environment. She opened the Jane Goodall Institute in 1977 to educate people about the environment. She has written many books and still travels around the world, helping children understand the natural world. In 2002, she opened a Jane Goodall Institute in Hong Kong, China. Everywhere she goes, people ask her about her research on chimpanzees.
