Even though Danish students have equal access to education, their choice of studies is still influenced by social class.

These young people have also grown up with   54  discussions around the dinner table which also prepare them for their lives as students,” says Jens Peter Thomsen.

He also added, “Young people who come from a working class background, and have good grades have to   55  the full range of opportunities they have. But the effort to reach this goal must start early”.

Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked,“Do you think they’ll let me play?”Shay’s father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team,but the father also understood that if his son,mentally and physically disabled,were allowed to play,it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence.

Shay’s father approached one of the boys on the field and asked if Shay could play,not expecting much. The boy looked around and said,“We’re losing by six runs(分)and the game is in the eighth inning(局). I guess he can be on our team and we’ll try to put him in to bat in the final inning. “

Shay struggled over to the team’s bench and put on a team shirt with a broad smile and his father had a small tear in his eye and warmth in his heart. The boys saw the father’s joy at his son being accepted.

In the bottom of the eighth inning,Shay’s team scored a few runs but was still behind by three. In the top of the final inning,Shay put on a glove and played in the field. Even though no hits came his way,he was obviously joyful just to be in the game and on the field. In the bottom of the final inning,Shay’s team scored again. Now,Shay was scheduled to be next at bat. Would they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game?

Surprisingly,Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was almost impossible. The first pitch(投) came and Shay missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to throw the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in,Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher.

The pitcher could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman and Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game. Instead,the pitcher threw the ball right over the head of the first baseman,beyond the reach of all teammates. The audience and the players from both teams started screaming,“Shay,run to first!“ Never in his life had Shay ever run that far but made it to first base,wide-eyed and shocked.

Everyone shouted,“Run to second!“ Catching his breath,Shay awkwardly ran towards second. By the time Shay rounded towards second base,the smallest guy on their team,who had a chance to be the hero for his team for the first time,could have thrown the ball to the second baseman,but he understood the pitcher’s intentions and he too intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third baseman’s head.

All were screaming,“Shay,Shay,Shay,all the way Shay. “ Shay reached third base when one opposing player ran to help him and shouted,“Shay,run to third. “ As Shay rounded third,all were on their feet,crying,“Shay,run home!”Shay ran to home,stepped on the home base and was cheered as the hero who won the game for his team.

That day,the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world. Shay didn’t make it to another summer and died that winter,having never forgotten being the hero and making his father so happy and coming home and seeing his mother tearfully hug her little hero of the day!

1. Not expecting much,Shay’s father still asked the boy if Shay could play,mainly because the father   . 

A. noticed some of the boys on the field were hesitating

B. guessed his presence would affect the boys’ decision

C. learned some of the boys on the field knew Shay well

D. understood Shay did need a feeling of being accepted

2. In the bottom of the final inning Shay was given the bat because the boys   . 

A. believed they were sure to win the game

B. would like to help Shay enjoy the game

C. found Shay was so eager to be a winner

D. felt forced to give Shay another chance

3. The smallest boy threw the ball high and far over the third baseman’s head,probably because that boy   . 

A. was obviously aware of the pitcher’s purpose

B. looked forward to winning the game for his team

C. failed to throw the ball to the second baseman

D. saw that Shay already reached second base

4. Which of the followinghas nothing to do with Shay’s becoming the hero for his team?

B. The audience and the players from both teams cheered for him.

[答案] 17.1-5 DBACA

[解析] 17.【语篇解读】 本文为记叙文。Shay身患残疾, 但棒球队的成员却同意他参加比赛, 并合力表演了一场充满爱意的“假球” , 以此使Shay明白他没有被人遗忘。

1. D 细节理解题。由第一段最后一句可知, 他父亲明白如果对方同意自己身患残疾的儿子参加比赛, 就会使儿子感觉到他属于其中一员, 就会帮儿子建立起自信心, 这都是他所需要的。sense of belonging与D项中的a feeling of being accepted接近。故D项为正确答案。

2. B 推理判断题。根据第五段可知, 队员把球棒给了Shay, 但每个人都知道他不可能击到球的, 结合下文的叙述可知, 这是在帮助他享受比赛。

3. A 细节理解题。根据倒数第三段可知, 最小的那个孩子本可以结束比赛, 成为球队的英雄, 但他明白投球手的意图, 故意把球投得又高又远, 从第三个垒手的头上飞了过去。从“. . . he understood the pitcher’s intentions. . . “ 可以得知答案为A项。

4. C 推理判断题。根据文义可知, 对方球员是在故意输掉比赛, 这样Shay就成了球队的英雄。对方球员并非不能阻止Shay跑垒, 而是故意让其赢得比赛, 因此C项与“Shay成为球队英雄” 没有关系。

5. A 主旨大意题。概括文章内容尤其是最后一段可知, 这群进行棒球比赛的孩子们合力让身患残疾的Shay成为整场比赛的英雄, 把真爱和人性带到了这个世界上。故答案为A项, 即“人类真正的本性能在我们对待他人的方式中实现”。

【长难句】 By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the smallest guy on their team, who had a chance to be the hero for his team for the first time, could have thrown the ball to the second baseman, but he understood the pitcher’s intentions and he too intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third baseman’s head. 当Shay连滚带爬地向第二垒前进时, 球队里最小的那个孩子有机会第一次成为球队的英雄, 他本可以把球投向第二个垒手, 但是他明白投手的意图, 也故意把球投得又高又远, 从第三个垒手的头上飞了过去。

By the time. . .在句中作时间状语; who引导定语从句, 先行词为the smallest guy; could have done表示虚拟语气, 意为“本可以做某事但没做”。


Garlic is one of the most common flavors in our kitchen. It not only tastes wonderful, but also it’s very good for your body. It is one of Mother Nature’s most precious gifts to cooks of all levels.

Choose garlic heads that are firm to the touch, with no scars or soft cloves (蒜瓣). If you notice dark, powdery patches under the skin, pass it up because this is an indication of a common mold which will eventually spoil the flesh.

Store unpeeled heads of garlic in an open container in a cool, dry place away from other foods. Do not refrigerate or freeze unpeeled garlic. Properly stored garlic can keep up to three months.

As garlic ages, it will begin to produce green sprouts in the center of each clove. These infant green sprouts can be bitter, so throw them before using the garlic for your recipe. However, if you plant the cloves and let them grow to a height of about six inches, you can use the sprouts like chives (韭黄) in salads and such.

Garlic can also be purchased as peeled whole cloves, both stored in olive or vegetable oil. It is urgent that garlic in oil be stored under refrigeration to avoid potentially-deadly bacteria growth. If you use a lot of garlic and wish to cut your preparation time down, you can pre-peel and store your own in oil in the refrigerator, but the best flavor will come from freshly-peeled cloves. Use garlic powder, garlic salt, and garlic juice only as a last resort.

To peel a garlic clove, place it on a cutting board on its side, and gently press down quickly with the flat side of a butcher knife. The skin should then easily peel off. If you find the skin clinging desperately to the clove, congratulations! You have fresh garlic. As garlic ages, the skin is gradually dried-up, making it easier to peel.

1. The passage is mainly about   .

A. how to select, store and peel garlic

B. what garlic tastes and smells

C. where to keep the garlic

D. when to reap the garlic

2. A dark patch under the skin of garlic means   .

A. the cloves of garlic are soft

B. the garlic has been kept for long

C. something wrong with the garlic

D. the garlic has been cooked

3. The underlined word “sprouts” means   .

A. new parts growing on a plant

B. newly seeds growing on a plant

C. parts belonging to a branching shape

D. thin skin attached to garlic

4. If you want to store garlic,    .

A. you can keep it in the refrigerator up to three months

B. you’d better keep the peeled in the refrigerator

C. you may keep frozen unpeeled garlic

D. you can put garlic in vegetable oil

Problem: On the scale of problems, “pictures of food on the Internet” is firmly first-world. And that is almost certainly a too-generous definition of “problem.” When it comes to photographing and putting your dinner on line, I say live and let live, you know? Maybe your salad was particularly inviting and pleasing that night, and I, too, have spent many an hour clicking “random” on Smitten Kitchen and salivating(流口水).

But I assume if you’re making the effort to arrange your food artfully and preserve its memory in a digital archive, you must... like food. And want it to taste good. A recent study published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology suggests that spending time focusing on images of food makes the food itself less satisfying.

Methodology: The researchers assumed that imagining enjoying something might lead to satiation -- the feeling that makes the second piece of cake taste not-quite-as-good as the first. To test this, they had some people participate in two experiments that they were told were separate -- one in which they rated how appetizing different photos of food looked, and one in which they ate some peanuts and rated how much they enjoyed them.

A separate group of people did the same experiment again, but in the photo-rating portion, some were asked to rate how appetizing the food was or to choose a preference between two foods, and some were asked to rate the brightness of the photo itself.

Results: The more photos of food people looked at, the less they enjoyed the peanuts -- if they were looking at photos of salty food. People who looked carefully at images of sweets enjoyed the peanuts more, suggesting that imagination causes satiation only if you’re imagining a similar food. In the second experiment, participants who focused on the brightness of the photos were able to enjoy the peanuts more than those who were thinking about the deliciousness of foods while they looked at the images.

Implications: You’ll probably enjoy your food more if you don’t take a picture of it, or scroll through images of cookies at work and then eat one when you get home. This also has potential implications for advertisers, who may unknowingly be giving away satiation for free when they show images of chicken wings or whatever in front of us all day long. But luckily the study provides a hint: Try not to think about the food’s taste while you take a photo -- just focus on your composition.

[解析] 20.[语篇解读]本文为说明文。研究表明,分享或关注网上食物的照片会使人们对食物的满意程度下降。也就是说,某种食物的图片看得越多,你就会越不喜欢吃那种食物。

71. share    根据第一段When it comes to photographing and putting your dinner on line可知,很多人喜欢将自己吃的食物拍照,然后上传到网上和别人分享。

72. reduces/ affects/ decreases/ lessens    根据第二段最后一句spending time focusing on images of food makes the food itself less satisfying可知,花时间去关注食物的照片会降低我们对食物的满意度。

73. appetite    根据第三段第一句imagining enjoying something might lead to satiation可知,想象享用美食可能导致饱腹感,即:使你对真正的食物失去胃口。

74. rate    根据第三段第二句one in which they rated…and one in which they ate some peanuts and rated可知,在试验中,一些人被要求评价食物的照片和真正的食物。

75. conducted/ made/ done     根据第四段第一句中did the same experiment again可知,这里指做相同的试验。

76. inviting/ attractive    根据第五段第一句the less they enjoyed the peanuts可知,如果他们看咸味食物的照片,花生对他们就没有诱惑力。

77. different    根据第五段第二句imagination causes satiation only if you’re imagining a similar food反推,想象不同的食物就不会造成饱腹感。

78. enables/ allows/ causes    根据第五段最后一句可知,关注照片的亮度使人吃更多的花生。

79. Avoid    根据文章最后一句Try not to think about…可知,这里指不要在拍照的时候想这个食物的味道。Avoid doing sth避免做某事。

80. promote    广告商打出广告自然是要推销他们的产品。


在班级活动中,当你的想法与大多数同学不一致时,你是坚持自己的观点并说服别人,还是尊重大多数同学的意见?请你以“When I Have a Different Opinion”为题,用英语写一篇100~ 120个词的短文。要求如下:




When I Have a Different Opinion




[解析] 21.[写作提示]




One possible version:

When I Have a Different Opinion

We may have different opinions in organizing class activities.When I have a different opinion,I may choose to give it up and respect the opinion of the majority.

The main reason for my choice is that being brought up in a culture emphasizing collectivism,I tend to sacrifice my own interest for the group benefit.Once we were left to decide whether to have a picnic in a park or go to a museum.I would love to go to a museum,but most of my classmates wanted to go for a picnic.Without hesitation,I decided to follow them and we did have lots of fun that day.Sometimes giving up a little can mean getting more.
