I am a selfish child.
I hope the sunshine lies only upon me, so I can feel its warmth.

I hope there is a corner of the world that can comfort me when I am sad,
I am a selfish child.
I hope my mom belongs only to me, so I can enjoy the sweetness of love. "
This poem was written by a middle school student in a lonely mountainous town in Yunnan Province during her first poetry class. The girl missed her mother, who died when she was 5.
Kang Yu, the teacher who taught the girl how to write the poem, graduated from Renmin University of China in Beijing in 2015. Soon after her gradation, Kang moved to a town in Yunnan, and worked as a teacher at a middle school there.
Kang said, "Compared with students in the city, perhaps students in the countryside need a way to express their feelings and be heard more." Supported by the headmaster and other teachers,
the school held eight poetry classes for students every year.
As the classes grew in popularity, Kang became the school's favourite teacher. After she finished her teaching at the school in June 2017, she returned to Beijing and planned to study abroad.
However, on Teachers' Day in 2017, Kang received a big box full of poems and letters written by students at her old school. She felt she was needed and decided to abandon her plan of studying abroad. Instead, she set up Enlighten our Future, a charity that reaches students in the countryside how to write poems.
"Now, I go to several places every week. I sleep less than six hours a night and the job provides no vacations and little money, but the happiness and satisfaction I feel is rewarding enough." Kang said.
26. What's the poem about at the beginning of the passage?
A. A world which is full or love. B. A mother who misses her child.
C. A child who is in need of mother's love. D. A child who can feel the sun's warmth
27. What’s the meaning of the underlined word "abandon" ?
A. work out B. carry out C. give up D. make up

C. Kang said she was doing a well-paid job and had some vacations.
D. Before Kang set up the charity, she taught in Yunnan for about two years.
【答案】26. C 27. C 28. D
细节理解题。根据短文开头的这首诗歌的内容以及第二段This poem was written by a middle school student in a lonely mountainous town in Yunnan Province during her first poetry class. The girl missed her mother, who died when she was 5.可知，这首诗表达了女孩对妈妈的思念以及渴望得到妈妈的爱。由此可知应选C。
词义猜测题。work out计算出，锻炼；carry out实施；give up放弃；make up编造，弥补。根据短文第五段After she finished her teaching at the school in June 2017, she returned to Beijing and planned to study abroad.可知，康玉准备出国；再根据划线单词所在的句子She felt she was needed and decided to abandon her plan of studying abroad.“她感觉她是被需要的”以及最后一段Now, I go to several places every week.可知，康玉最后没有出国，而是建立了一个组织，教农村的孩子们写诗。由此可猜测abandon的意思应该是“放弃”，故应选C。
推理判断题。根据短文第三段Kang Yu, the teacher who taught the girl how to write the poem, graduated from Renmin University of China in Beijing in 2015. Soon after her gradation, Kang moved to a town in Yunnan, and worked as a teacher at a middle school there.可知，康玉是在2015年大学毕业后不久来到了云南。再根据短文第五段After she finished her teaching at the school in June 2017, she returned to Beijing可知，康玉在2017年回到了北京。由此可知她在云南待了大约两年的时间，故应选D。根据she set up Enlighten our Future, a charity that reaches students in the countryside how to write poems.可知A不对；根据第四段the school held eight poetry classes for students every year.可知B不对；根据最后一段I sleep less than six hours a night and the job provides no vacations and little money可知C不对。
(an extract from a detective story)
"Sit down, " Henderson said, sitting down in an armchair himself and looking at Logan. "What are you here for?"
"I understand you had a party last night" said Logan, a police officer.
"Yes," said Henderson, "Oh! I hope the neighbours haven’t been complaining about the noise again. "
"Not that I know of." said Logan. "But a young girl, Fran, who came to the patty hasn't been home yet"
"Fran" said Henderson. "Yes, she was here. She left early, as I remember-about one o'clock. I happened to notice what the time was when she came to say goodbye. But nobody else left until about four in the morning."
Henderson looked quite relaxed.
"Did you know Clare?" asked Logan suddenly.
"Oh, God!" Henderson sat forward. "You don't think ... the same thing has happened to Fran?"
"We're keeping an open mind," said Logan, watching him carefully, "but we're giving it our full attention."
Well, yes. I can understand that. " replied Henderson, getting comfortable in the armchair again.
"So," repeated Logan, "did you know Clare?"
"Well, sure. I knew who she was. But we never had anything to do with each other." Said Henderson, giving Logan a big smile.
"Who else was at your party?" asked Logan.
"People from the university," said Henderson. "Students, teachers."
"David?" asked Grant, Logan's partner.
"Yes, David was here for a time." Henderson smiled again. "But he's not really a party animal. He probably left early."
"What do you mean, probably?" asked Grant.
Henderson looked at Grant. Grant was sixty with thick black hair and a large moustache. His clothes, as always, looked rather old: a blue jacket and grey trousers. He did not look much of a party animal either.
"Well, I don't check when my guests arrive and leave," said Henderson. "And some people just leave when they want to go home. They don't come and say goodbye. Anyway, sometimes I can be difficult to find." Again he looked at Logan, raised his eyebrows and gave her a big smile. "I sometimes end up in the bedroom"
29. How many characters are mentioned in the story?
A. Five. B. Six. C. Seven. D. Eight
30. Why did Logan and Grant go to Henderson's house?
A. Because the girl Fran who attended the party disappeared.
B. Because they went to the party held in, Henderson's house.
C. Because Henderson's neighbours called them for the noise.
D. Because they wanted to know why Henderson held the party.
31. What can be inferred (推断) from Grant's question "What do you mean, probably?"?
A. Grant helped Logan to ask this question.
B. Grant didn't understand Henderson's words.
C. Grant himself wasn't a party animal like David.
D. Grant wanted to know the exact time of David's leaving.
【答案】29. B 30. A 31. D
细节理解题。根据短文第一段"Sit down, " Henderson said, sitting down in an armchair himself and looking at Logan.、短文第四段said Logan. "But a young girl, Fran, who came to the patty hasn't been home yet"、第七段"Did you know Clare?" asked Logan suddenly.以及第十五段"David?" asked Grant, Logan's partner.可知，文章中提到了Henderson, Logan, Fran, Clare, David和Grant一共六个人物。故应选B。
细节理解题。根据短文第四段"Not that I know of." said Logan. "But a young girl, Fran, who came to the patty hasn't been home yet"可知，因为一个来参加聚会的叫Fran的女孩失踪了，因此警察来找Henderson进行调查。故应选A。
推理判断题。根据语境"Yes, David was here for a time." Henderson smiled again. "But he's not really a party animal. He probably left early."
"What do you mean, probably?" asked Grant.
"Well, I don't check when my guests arrive and leave," said Henderson.可知，Henderson说David可能很早就离开了，Logan和他搭档Grant对这个模糊的回答不满意，他们想要知道David离开晚会的具体时间，故应选D。
Some researchers explain how most people form their social groups with people of their age. Especially, as children and teenagers, even adults, people make their friends based on proximity (邻近) more than anything else. Even in a college classroom, the students may not make friends with those who have similar personalities and interests. It's the people they really sit next to. Clearly, who stands nearest to you has the greatest influence on you. As Jim Rohn has widely said. "You are average (平均) of five people you spend the most time with."
Over the past ten months, I've paid Ryan, a famous writer of several bestselling books, to help with the book I'm writing. Working with him has shown me just how low my standards for my work are. For example, every time I send him a drab (草稿), he shows me how it could be 10 times better, and he holds me to that standard.
___32___▲___33___ It's because that I don't know what I don't know. Working with Ryan has made me realize what is possible and what it takes to create something powerful.
Like Ryan, my business partner Richard has wonderful ideas and far different experience than I have. He has written 36 New York Times Bestsellers. He's been speaking and doing events for 20 years. Richard always performs at high levels, and he is also very strict with me because my performance is a reflection (反映) on him. It's not a bad thing because it creates high pressure (压力) to help me make great progress in organizing author training.
In a word, you need to stay with those people who can help you realize your level and potential. Staying with people who have higher standards is the fastest way for you to change. If you don't change your environment, your progress will be very slow. Who you stay with has huge importance. You can't ignore this.
32. Why did the writer quote (引用) Jim Rohn's words in Paragraph 1?
A. To support the writer's opinion. B. To introduce the writer's best friend.
C. To show Jim Rohn's working ability. D. To prove Jim Rohn is a great person.
33. Which of the following can be put at the beginning of Paragraph 3?
A. It's not that my workmates' abilities are low.
B. It's not that my working ability was born low.
C. It's not that' e friends based on proximity.
D. It's not that I’ve paid Ryan to help me with my book.
34. What does the underlined word "it" in Paragraph 4 refer to (指代)?
A. The writer's performance. B. Jim Rohn's famous saying.
C. Richard’s different experience. D. Richard’s strictness with the writer.
35. The writer mainly wants to tell us that ________________.
A. we can improve our working abilities by ourselves
B. we must pay attention to our talent and potential
C. we’d better make friends with those who can hold us to higher levels
D. we should stay with those who have similar personalities and interests
【答案】32. A 33. B 34. D 35. C
推理判断题。短文开头Some researchers explain how most people form their social groups with people of their age.作者先解释了人们如何与其他人形成社会群体，从而得出结论Clearly, who stands nearest to you has the greatest influence on you.“离你最近的人对你影响最大”。紧接着作者引用了Jim Rohn的话，因此我们可以知道，作者这样是为了用名人的话来支持自己上面得到的结论。故应选A。
推理判断题。上一段作者介绍了自己和Ryan相处的例子，Ryan是一个有高标准的人，他对作者的影响很大。空格后的这句话It's because that I don't know what I don't know.“是因为我不知道我所不知道的东西是什么”，解释了作者工作能力低、对自己要求低的原因。因此这个空应选B，意为“并不是说我的工作能力天生就差”，
细节理解题。it是一个代词，代指前面提到的事物，根据上句话Richard always performs at high levels, and he is also very strict with me because my performance is a reflection (反映) on him. 和这句话It's not a bad thing because it creates high pressure (压力) to help me make great progress in organizing author training.可知，Richard对作者要求非常严格，这对于作者来说反而是一件好事，因为它给了作者很大的压力，能帮助作者取得进步。由此可知it指代的是Richard对作者要求严格这件事。故应选D。
主旨大意题。根据短文第一段中Clearly, who stands nearest to you has the greatest influence on you.以及最后一段Who you stay with has huge importance. You can't ignore this.可知，离我们最近的人对我们的影响最大，所以和谁在一起很重要。因此如果我们想要取得进步，我们就应该和那些有更高水平的人在一起。故C选项符合文意。
根据句意, 用括号中所给单词的正确形式或音标提示填空, 每空一词。

40. Some couples are willing to give birth to a second child. The ____________ ([ˌpɒpjuˈleɪʃn] may be growing larger.
cancel取消，是一个动词。根据句意可知，该句的主语The plan for summer study trip与动词构成被动关系，应使用别的语态，空前有了may be，这里应填过去分词cancelled。
home家，根据句意After the earthquake可知，这里应表示“无家可归的人”，故应填形容词homeless。
rapid快速的，是一个形容词。根据句子结构可知，该空修饰的是前面的谓语动词has been developing，应用副词形式，故填rapidly。
【点睛】这个题目是用所给单词适当形式填空，考查单词在具体语境中的用法。做题时，应根据句意、所给单词在句中的作用以及句中使用的句型等，变化单词的正确形式。常考查的知识点包括：名词单复数、名词所有格；动词的时态、被动语态、主谓一致、非谓语动词；形容词作表语、定语、补语；副词作状语以及形容词和副词的比较级和最高级；介词短语；代词等等。例如第2小题，所给单词cancel取消，是一个动词。根据句意可知，该句的主语The plan for summer study trip与动词构成被动关系，应使用别的语态，空前有了may be，这里应填过去分词cancelled。再如第4小题，rapid快速的，是一个形容词。根据句子结构可知，该空修饰的是前面的谓语动词has been developing，应用副词形式，故填rapidly。

As I entered an international high school, all my friends felt surprised at my short hair. This is because, my old school thinks teenage y___46___ aren’t the time for looking pretty. Then I coloured my hair blue. For the first time, I felt free and beautiful. This international school s___47___ to meet my needs.
I had a t___48___ education background. I went to public schools, received normal (常规的) education and was required to follow r___49___ like every other student. Later, I began to wonder w___50___ this education was truly suitable for me.
However, in the new school my high hopes were not met. For a while, I found myself in a surprising situation as I faced before. It was s___51___ the biggest challenge I faced in my education-the freedom to try new things. In the old system, I was strongly advised a___52___ trying new things. But in my new school, it worked the opposite way-we had many chances to try new things. But if I f___53___, I must be responsible (负责任的) because I put myself in such risk. Finally, it led me to get into trouble again.
As time went by, I started to find my o___54___ balance. In fact, none of the education systems in the world are perfect. I am l___55___ enough to have a chance to bring great value from both systems together. As a result, I've built a system for myself.
47. seems 48. terrible
49. rules 50. whether
53. fail 54. own
根据句意aren't the time for looking pretty可知，这里应指的是“青少年时期”，单词的首字母是y，由此可猜到应填youth，意为“青年，青少年时期”。
根据句意和首字母可知，这里应填seem，意为“似乎，好像”，后面常跟动词不定式，seem to do sth.“好像做某事”。短文第一段使用的是一般现在时态，主语The international school是单数，故动词应变为三单形式，填seems。
根据下文I went to public schools, received normal (常规的) education and was required to follow r___4___ like every other student. Later, I began to wonder w___5___ this education was truly suitable for me.可知，作者对自己在从前的学校里接受的教育表示怀疑，不知道那种教育是不是适合“我”。结合首字母可知，这里应填terrible，“糟糕的”。
根据句意I began to wonder…和文意可知，作者不知道这种教育是不是适合他，故这里填whether，意为“是否”，引导宾语从句。
根据上句话For a while, I found myself in a surprising situation as I faced before.可知，这里作者说的是在新学校里让他吃惊的事，故应填surprising，形容词，“令人吃惊的”，在句中作表语。
根据文意可知，作者接受的新旧两个教育体系是不一样的，下句话But in my new school, it worked the opposite way-we had many chances to try new things.“新学校鼓励学生们尝试新事物”，因此原来的学校是反对的，故这里填against，“反对，违抗”。
根据句意I must be responsible可知，这里表示“假如失败的话”，应用fail，是一个动词。这一段使用的是一般现在时，主语为I，故动词填原形。
根据文意和句意to have a chance to bring great value from both systems together.可知，作者经历了两种教育体系，将他们的家长结合在一起，作者是非常幸运的。故这里应填lucky，是一个形容词，意为“幸运的”。
【点睛】这篇短文作者通过对比他经历的两种完全相反的教育体系，告诉我们每一种教育体系都有它自己的优点和缺点，没有哪种是完美的。短文主题明确，结构清晰，文章中作者通过对比、举例的方式，使学生们更容易理解文章的内容。题型是短文填空，要求根据文意以及单词的首字母，填写适当的单词，并注意使用其正确的形式。做题时，应先通读短文，了解文章大意；然后根据首字母提示填写单词，再根据句中使用的句型、单词的作用等，变化其正确的形式。例如第4小题，根据句意follow….“遵守…”和首字母r可知，这里应表示“遵守规则”，应用名词rule，且学生们遵守的规则是有很多的，故应填复数形式rules。再如第7小题，根据文意可知，作者接受的新旧两个教育体系是不一样的，下句话But in my new school, it worked the opposite way-we had many chances to try new things.“新学校鼓励学生们尝试新事物”，因此原来的学校是反对的，故这里填against，“反对，违抗”。
Our feelings influence almost every decision we make. Instead of living a boring life, positive (积极的) feelings can help us a lot. The pity is that sometimes we become victims of feelings.
In one of my latest books, I compare people’s ability to controls (控制) on a media player. Just like the controls can help you enjoy wonderful songs, these methods will be choices for you to manage feelings successfully.
Take time to stop and think before you speak or act. Of course, you may feel sorry if you like doing something without thinking-like sending an angry email or posting something bad on social media. If you feel your feelings getting out of control, pause. If possible, go for a short walk. Once you've calmed down, decide how you want to move forward.
Have you ever noticed that when speaking with someone, your style or tone is a mirror (镜子) of the person's you are speaking to? If you stay calm or quiet, they'll follow you. Shout or scream, and they'll do just like you. If a discussion starts to become worse, try to change it by softening your tone or lowering your voice.
If you want to learn more about another person’s thoughts, recording, one way of careful listening, may help. You don't need to reply at once; you're listening to understand. Through careful listening, you often see things you didn’t see before and can even discover misunderstandings you didn’t know. Don't judge or offer advice before you know more about others and the topic.
阅读以上信息, 用恰当单词完成下面的短文, 每空一词。
Sometimes, our decisions are affected by our feelings. If you keep positive feelings, you can ___56___ living a boring life. Some methods can help you ___57___in controlling your feelings. First, doing without thinking may make you ___58___what you've said or done. It's wise of you to pause when your feelings become bad.

What’s more, recording is one way of careful listening, with the ___60___ of learning more about another person's thoughts. Follow this way, you can judge or offer suggestions.
58. regret 59. calm / quiet
根据短文第一段Instead of living a boring life, positive (积极的) feelings can help us a lot.可知，“积极的情感能帮助我们不过无聊的生活”，故这里应填avoid，意为“避免”，后面常跟动名词作宾语。
根据短文第二段最后一句话Just like the controls can help you enjoy wonderful songs, these methods will be choices for you to manage feelings successfully.可知，这些方法可以帮助我们成功地管理我们的情感。题目中这句话使用的句型是help sb. do sth.因此这里应填动词succeed。
根据短文第三段Of course, you may feel sorry if you like doing something without thinking可知，如果你不经过思考就去做一些事，你可能会感到后悔的。题目中使用了句型make sb. do sth.，因此这里应填动词regret，“后悔”。
根据短文第四段If you stay calm or quiet, they'll follow you.可知，跟别人说话的时候，你说话的方式和音调要保持平静，这样对方也会跟随你的音调。由此可知这里应填calm或者quiet。
根据短文最后一段If you want to learn more about another person’s thoughts, recording, one way of careful listening, may help可知，“如果你想更多地了解别人的想法，录音，一种仔细聆听的方法可能是有帮助的”，题目中考查了短语with the help of…在…的帮助下，故这里应填help。
An 11-year-old blind girl is proud of walking alone every day to and from school. Why? She has to walk past so many barriers (障碍物) in her way. The girl's home is near the school, yet her mother follows her without letting her know.
The case of the girl shows the barrier-free facilities (设施) are not enough in her city. Many other cities are short of barrier-free facilities as well. There's no well-designed path for the blind. In fact, in the early 2000s, some cities started to build barrier-free facilities for disabled people. However, almost 20 years later, only a few large cities have had facilities of high quality.
It's common that sidewalks are taken up with barriers. Few workers are sent to move them away, so it's dangerous for the blind to walk on them. Also, some other barrier-free facilities are badly destroyed（毁坏）. Only a few workers are assigned (分配) to do the task of repairing the broken ones.
Some ideas can make a difference-build more barrier-free facilities and employ more workers to protect them –but hard to be put into practice, because both of them require money. In a word, more money is needed to carry on with the work. It’s our duty to make life easy for disabled people, so that they can live without barriers some day.
阅读以上信息, 用恰当的单词完成下面的表格, 每空一词。
A blind girl feels proud that she walks alone to from school every day.
The mother is unsure of her daughter's safety, so she always follows her and keeps it a ____61____.
Barrier-free facilities are not enough, ___63___ are the workers.
◇ Twenty years ago, some barrier-free facilities were built.
◇ Now, most cities are short of facilities of high quality ___64___ several large cities.
◇ Barriers on sidewalks aren’t moved away in time.
◇ Broken facilities aren’t repaired sometimes.
More money is needed to help the disabled live as ___65___ as common people.
◇ Build more barrier-free facilities.
◇ Employ more workers to protect them.
64. except 65. easy
根据短文第一段最后一句话The girl's home is near the school, yet her mother follows her without letting her know.可知，这个盲人女孩能顺利的上学、放学，其实是她的妈妈一路上跟着她，没有让她知道，即保守秘密，故这里填secret，“秘密”。
根据短文第二段The case of the girl shows the barrier-free facilities (设施) are not enough in her city.以及短文第三段It's common that sidewalks are taken up with barriers. Few workers are sent to move them away, so it's dangerous for the blind to walk on them可知，无障碍设施的问题有“这些设施不够，还有就是维护这些设施的工人也很少”。结合题目可知，这里应填neither，意为“也不”，neither are the workers是一个倒装结构。
根据短文第二段Many other cities are short of barrier-free facilities as well…. However, almost 20 years later, only a few large cities have had facilities of high quality.可知，除了一些大城市有高质量的无障碍设施之外，很多城市都缺乏这些设施。由文意可知，这里应填except，意为“除了”。
根据短文最后一段It’s our duty to make life easy for disabled people, so that they can live without barriers some day.可知，我们有责任让残疾人的生活像普通人一样的轻松。由此可知这里应填easy，轻松的，容易的。
