I had already finished three notebooks and was into the fourth, a beautiful leather notebook l‘d bought in a market in Mozambique.
    Southern Africa was full of stories. And visions, We were almost drunk on sensations The roaring (咆哮) of the water at Victoria Falls, the impossible silence of the Okavango Delta in Botswana.
    And then the other things: dogs in the streets, whole families in Soweto IMng in one room, a kilometre from clean water.
    As we drove towards the setting sun, a quietness fell over us. The road was empty-we hadn‘t seen another car for hours. And as I drove, something caught my eye, something moving close enough to touch them, to smell their hot breath. I didn’t know how long they had been there next to us.
    I shouted to Dan: “Look! but he was in a deep sleep, his camera lying useless by his feet. They raced the car for a few seconds, then disappeared far behind us, a memory of heroic forms in the red landscape. When Daniel woke up an hour later I told him what had happened.
    “Wild horses? he said. ”Why didn‘t you wake me up, Sophia?“
    “I trred: But they were gone after a few seconds.
    “Are you sure you didn‘t dream it?”
    “You were the one who was sleeping!”

                            Operatunity
    1 Operatunity is a TV talent show for amateur opera singers. The winners get the chance to sing with the English National Opera. When two housewives, Denise Leigh and Jane Gilchrist won in 2002, their lives changed forever, As they sang Verdi‘s Rigoletto at the Coliseum(音乐厅) in Rome, they were transformed from working mothers into opera celebrities(名人)。
    2 “I live in the village I was born in,” says Denise, who is blind. “Lots of my neighbours are family, and my life is all about my three children.- Jane, who worked as a cleaner and a shop assistant, was in a similar situation. She says, ”AII l had to look forward to was seeing my four children grow up, and I love that, but .…… you think ‘there must be more to life’。 Winning Operatunity has opened up avenues I never knew existed.“ .
    3 “This last year has been amazing,” Denise continues. “Last month was Paris, before that we were recording at Abbey Road, in London, and. recently we had our album launch at the Royal Opera House.。 ”We‘ve been treated like princesses,“ laughs Jane. ”。……champagne, chocolates, five-star hotels .……“
    4 But it wasn‘t all so easy. For Denise, the worst part was waiting at the beginning. “After l’d sent in my application form I worried for a month. Then I had to wait ten days after my first audition(试唱)。 That was awful.” Even when they won the competition they were allowed to tell their close family but they weren‘t allowed to tell anyone else until later. Denise and Jane also found the travelling difficult. They couldn/t take their children with them while they were away singing .so they had to organise childcare. However, there‘s been no problem with the physical side of singing: “We didn’t have to worry about that as we‘ve had lots of help and wonderful voice training,“ says Jane. They also had to learn to deal with the media.- ”The kids loved the fact that they could stay up and watch us on TV, but ljust couldn’t understand why some newspapers were more interested in the fact I divorced at 21, rather than the fact I had just sung at the Coliseum, says Denise.

第4部分:阅读理解(第31~45题,每题3分,共45分)
下面有3篇短文,每篇短文后有5道题。请根据短文内容,为每题确定1个最佳选项。

                    第一篇How to Be a Successful Businessperson
    Have you ever wondered why some people are successful in business and others are not? Here‘s a story about one successful businessperson. He started out washing dishes and today he owns 168 restaurants.
    Zubair -Kazi was born in Bhatkal, a small town in southwest India. His dream was to be an airplane pilot, and when he was 16 years old, he learned to fly a small plane.
    At the age of 23 and with just a little money in his pocket, Mr. Kazi moved to the United States. He hoped to get a job in the airplane industry in California. Instead, he ended up working for a company that rented cars.
    While Mr. Kazi was working at the car rental(祖赁的) company, he frequently ate at a nearby KFC restaurant. To save money on food, he decided to get a job with KFC. For two months, he worked as a cook‘s assistant. His job was to clean the kitchen and help the cook. “I didn’t like it,” Mr. Kazi says, “but I always did the best I could.”
    One day, Mr. Kazi‘s two co-workers failed to come to work. That day, Mr. Kazi did the work of all three people in the kitchen. This really impressed the owners of the restaurant.
    A few months later, the owners needed a manager for a new restaurant. They gave the job to Mr. Kazi. He worked hard as the manager and soon the restaurant was making a profit.
    A few years later, Mr. Kazi heard about a restaurant that was losing money. The restaurant was dirty inside and the food was terrible. Mr. Kazi borrowed money from a bank and bought the restaurant. For the first six months, Mr. Kazi worked in the restaurant from 8 a.m. t0 10 p.m., seven days a week. He and his wife cleaned up the restaurant, remodeled the front of the building, and improved the cooking. They also tried hard to please the customers. lf someone had to wait more than ten minutes for their food, Mrs. Kazi gave them a free soda. Before long the restaurant was making a profit.
    A year later, Mr. Kazi sold his restaurant for a profit. With the money he earned, he bought three more restaurants that were losing money. Again,‘he cleaned them up, improved the food, and retrained the employees. Before long these restaurants were making a profit, too.
    Today Mr. Kazi owns 168 restaurants, but he isn‘t planning to stop there. He’s looking for more poorly managed restaurants to buy. “I love it when I go to buy a restaurant and find it‘s a mess,” Mr. Kazi says. “The only way it can go is up.”
31.
When Mr. Kazi was young, his dream was to[3分]
be an airplane pilot.
sellcars.
own a restaurant.
become a good cook.
32.

                    第二篇Three Ways to Become More Creative
    Most people believe they don‘t have has imagination, but most of us, once much imagination. They are wrong. Everyone we become adults, forget how to access it. Creativit}r isn’t always connected with great works of art or ideas. People at work and in their free time routinely think of creative ways to solve problems. Maybe you have a goal to achieve, a tricky question to answer or you just want to expand your mind! Here are three techniques to help you.
    This technique involves taking unrelated ideas and trying to find links between them. First, think about the problem you have to solve or the job you need to do. Then find an image, word, idea or object, for example, a candle. Write down all the ideas/words associated with candles: light, fire, matches, wax, night, silence, etc. Think of as many as you can. The next stage is to relate the ideas to the job you have to do. So imagine you want to buy a friend an original present; you could buy him tickets to a match or take him out for the night. Imagine that normal limitations don‘t exist. You have as much time/space/money, etc. as you want. Think about your goal and the new possibilities. If, for example, your goal is to learn to ski(滑雪), you can now practice skiing every day of your life (because you have the time and the money)。 Now adapt this to reality. Maybe you can practice skiing every day in December, or every Monday in January.
    Look at the situation from a different point of view. Good negotiators (谈判者) use this technique in business, and so do writers. Fiction writers often imagine they are the characters in their books, They ask questions: what does this character want? Why can‘t she get it? What changes must she make to get what she wants? What does she.dream about? If your goal involves other people, put yourself “in their shoes”。 The best fishermen think like fish!
36.
According to the passage,when.we become adults,[3分]
most of us are no longer creative.
we are not as imaginative as children.
we can stilllearn to.be more creative.
.we are unwillfng to be creative. .
37.
According to the first technique, if you need to solve a problem,[3分]
you should link it with candle.
you have to think of buying a present for a friend.
you should link it with as many words as possible.
you could find an image and try to link it with the problem.
38.
The second technique suggests that you just imagine .[3分]
setting a goalis as simple as skiing.。
you have every resource to achieve your goal.
new possibilities will soon appear. .
December and January are the best months for skiing.
39.
The phrase “put yourself ‘in their shoes”’ in paragraph.4 is closest in m. eaning to[3分]
dressyourselflikethem.
do as they ask you to
put on their shoes
think as they would
40.
We learn from the third technique that a good salesman should ask himself:[3分]
what are my customers‘ needs?
what do I usually do?
what did my boss tell me to do?
how should I sell my products?
                    第三篇The State of Marriage Today
    Is there something seriousty wrong with marriage today? During the‘past 50 years, the rate of divorce in the United States has exploded: almost 50% of marriages end in divorce now, and the evidence suggests it is going to get worse. If this trend continues, it will lead to the breakup of the family, according.to a spokesperson for the National Family Association. Some futurists predict that in 100 years, the average American will marry at least four times, and extramaritai(婚外的) affairs will be even more common than they are now.
    But what are the reasons for this, and is the picture really so gloomy (明暗的)? The answer to the first question is really quite simple: marriage is no longer the necessity it once was. The institution of marriage has been based for years partly on economic need. Women used to be economically dependent on their husbands-as they usually didn‘t have jobs outside the home. But with the rising number of women in well-paying jobs, this i:a no longer the case, so they don’t feel that they‘need to stay in a failing marriage.
    In answer to the second question, the outlook may not be as pessimistic (悲观的) as it seems. While the rate of divorce has risen; the rate of couples marrying has never actually fallen ver}t much, so marriage is still quite popular. In addition to this, many couples now simply live together and don‘t bother to marry. These couples are effectively married, but they do not appear in either the marriage or divorce statistics. In fact, more than 50% offtrst marriages survive.
    So is marriage really an outdated institution? The fact that most people still get . married indicates that it isn‘t. And it is also true that married couples have a healthier life than single people: they suffer less from stress and its consequences, such as heart problems, and married men generally consider themselves more dontented tfian their single counterparts. Perhaps the key is to find out what makes a successful marriage and apply it to all of our relationships!
41.
Which of the following is true about the marriage in the United States today?[3分]
Divorce leads to the breakup of the family.
More than half of the married couples get divorced.
American people marry more than four times.
More and more people are getting divorced.
42.
What does “this is no longer the case” in paragraph 2 mean?[3分]
Women are not economically dependant‘any more.
It is not necessar}t to get married any more.
Women do not need a husband anylonger.
Many wives do well-paying jobs outside home now.
43.
Why‘is the outlook of marriage riot as hopeiess as it appears?[3分]
Many people stil like to get married.
The rate of divorce has actually decreased.
Over 60% of the marriages continue to exist.
The statistics of divorce is reliable.
44.
How do most men feelin their marriage life?[3分]
They feel much stronger than before.
They don‘t feel as lonely as before.
They su忏er more than before.
They feel more satisfied than being singte.
45.
Which of the following about marriage is NOT mentioned in the passage?[3分]
It is important to discover what makes a marriage successful.
Marriage has long been partly an economic need.
It is a fact that most people choose to get married.
Many people went abroad after divorce.

                        Some Unusual Celebrations
    Some holidays are well-known all around the world. Among them are New. Year‘s Eve celebrations. Also common are days in honor of love and friendship, like Valentine’s Day. Each country has its own special holidays, too, often to mark important events.in its history. Schools, banks, and government offices all close on-days. like these. _ (46) A few of them are really very strange.
    Of course, they are not strangE to the people who celebrate them. Perhaps that is lbecause the celebrations have long.tradifons. C. onsiderApril Fool‘s Day,。for examp.ie. No one knows when or why it began. Today it.is celebrated in many countries-France, England, and Australia, among others. On this day, people play practical jokes. _ (47) The ones who laugh are the ones playing the jokes. The people they fool often get angry. Does celebrating this day’make sense to you?
    Dyngus Day in Poland seems strange, too. On this day, it is traditional for boys to pour water over the heads of girls. Here is the strangest part: They do it to girls they like.
    Other unusual celebrations take place in a single city or town. A holiday called La Tomatina is celebrated in Bunol, Spain. Every year, in late August, big trucks carry more than 200,000 pounds of tomatoes into this little town.- (48) For two hours, people in the streets throw tomatoes at each other. Everyone ends up red from head to toe.
    August 10 marks the start of the Puck Fair, an lrish festival with a very unusual tradition. People from the town of Killorglin go up into the mountains and‘ catch a wild There are also some celebrations that are really strange. In the United States, sometimes one person gets an idea for a new holiday and tries to get others to accept it. Whose idea was Public Sleeping Day? That one is on February 28. It may seem strange, but it sounds like more fun than the one on February9. (50)
    Do you like the‘idea of inventing a new holiday? lf you do, then you will want to mark March 26 0n your calendar. That is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day.

                    Why People Use Pseudonyms(假名字)?
    You can‘t choose the name you are given at birth, but in many countries you can change it legally when you reach adulthood. Of course, most people never change their names(51) they feel unhappy about them. However some people do(52) this course of action-particularly artists! What makes an artist want to change their name? Sometimes it’s for purely(53) reasons, such as the Nobel Prize winning poet from Chile, Neftalf Reyes. He didn‘t want his father to (54) he was writing poetry, so he changed his name to Pablo Neruda when he was a young man.(55) other times the reason may Portuguese poet Femando Pessoa, appear strange; take the case of the (56) wrote under 75 different names. The reason? “When I use a different name, I always write in a different way,” he explained. In most cases, (57), people change their names for social, historical, political, or cultural reasons. Here are some of the most(58)
    The person‘s real name is just(59) long and difficult to remember. Let’s be honest, Madonna Louise Ciccone is not as (60) to remember as just plain “Madonna . And short names are much easier to remember: William Bradley became Brad Pitt and Edson Arantes do Nascimento became Pele.
    Sometimes names are changed for marketing (61)。 For example, if a name sounds too “foreign , it may be changed to something that is more recognizable in a (62)。 So in the film world, Ram6n Est6vez adopted the name Martin Sheen. Or maybe the artist‘s real name doesn’t sound ver3r attractive-Chad Everett does (63) a lot better than Raymond Cramton.
    Artists sometimes(64) the.name of someone they admire. Robert Zimmerman changed his name to Boo Dylan because of his admiration for the Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas.
    Another reason may be practicality: in the past, women found it very difficult to get published. To (65) this situation, they sometimes gave themselves men‘s names, so the English author Mary Ann Evans became George Eliot, and she did get her books published!
