My mother is a ordinary woman with extraordinary ability. Poor as my family is, but with my mother’s constant care and love, I feel warmly and happy. She always thinks of others first and never complains anything in her life, viewed life with an optimistic attitude. Also, she is a teacher with a good sense of humor and makes her students interest in English study. She shows great patient to those naughty ones, who also gives great comments on her in return. My mother always tries his best to deal with things perfectly. I hope I can be as good as my mother when I grow up. How a hero she is in my mind!

??? We know that too much of the wrong kind of food can be bad for our health, but for some people having a food allergy, eating certain things can actually be harmful. Now it is seemingly affecting more and more of us.

An allergy is caused by the immune system fighting substances in the environment, known as allergens, that it should see as harmless. 1.It means people have to spend their lives following strict dietary restrictions and worrying about the ingredients of everything they consume. We often hear about people having allergies to dairy products and to peanuts. Last year a teenager died after suffering a fatal allergic reaction from eating a baguette containing sesame seeds. 2.

Research has found that this problem is particularly affecting children. 3. Dr Alexandra Santos from King’s College London says food allergy now affects about 7 percent of children in the UK, and 9 percent of those in Australia.

4. Dr Santos says, the increase in allergies is not simply the effect of society becoming more aware of them and better at diagnosing them. 5. She adds that possible factors are pollution, dietary changes and less exposure to bacteria, which change how our immune systems respond.

A.So what might be the cause?

B.It seems to be more environmental.

C.Similarly, food allergic reaction is deadly.

D.This led to a call for better food-labeling laws.

E.Besides, more adults are suffering from food allergies.

F.However, food allergies can cause life-threatening reactions.

G.More and more of them are having allergic reactions to certain foodstuffs.


??? The UK's first fully solar-powered home, which removes the need to ever receive a gas or electricity bill again, has gone on sale, but it will cost you £1.2 million.

The timber-framed home in Great Glen, Leicestershire, contains a number of “zero-carbon feature” including solar electric energy, triple glazing and rainwater storage. It is entirely heated by underground water-filled tubes that are warmed by solar energy from rooftop panels. The house was designed and built by Caplin Homes and covers two acres of land. The design and construction, down to the materials, were used specifically for their low carbon footprint.

The solar panels on the roof of the five-bedroom house are called hybrids because they collect both electrical and thermal energy. Solar walls preheat incoming air, and an Earth Energy Bank (EEB) and heat pump can store heat, and get it back for use when temperatures drop. The south-facing triple-glazed windows are said to also improve the house's energy management during the winter.

All the technologies are controlled by a control system, which monitors the inside and outside temperatures, how much energy is being received by the solar panels, and the heat levels in the EE domestic hot water tank. Due to its low energy design, the Solar House is expected to only require heat from the EEB for about 10 weeks of the year.

For £1.2 million, buyers also get two garages. Estate agent (房地产经纪人) Anthony Fox said the possibility of no utility bills was a big draw for potential owners: the idea is that your bills pretty much disappear and the house is self-sustaining and self-sufficient. That was a big aspect for most of the people who came to have a look around. “We had a lot of interest on the open day. There were some strong considerations to buy there and then. Everyone was very keen to learn how the house worked.” He added.

1.Which is true about the UK’s first fully solar-powered home?

A.It is directly heated by rooftop panels.

B.It has a set of heat-storage device available.

C.All of its materials are not environmentally friendly.

D.Its walls can keep cold air from coming in to store heat.

2.What’s the main idea of Paragraph 4?

A.The monitor of the temperature.

B.The amount of the received energy.

C.The function of the control system.

D.The significance of the new technologies.

3.What’s a big attraction for potential buyers according to Anthony Fox?

A.No gas or electricity bill. B.Two additional garages.

C.Unique structure of the house. D.Only £1.2 million for the house.

4.What is the purpose of the passage?

A.To advertise a zero-carbon house.

B.To recommend an amazing house.

C.To introduce a solar-powered house.

D.To explain how the low-energy house works.


??? Do you like shopping? For shopaholics in the UK, the place to head to used to be the “high street”. It was the place where you could find familiar fashion brands and essential everyday items in the centre of a town. But change in our shopping habits has taken its toll on the British high street.

News about shops losing money and shutting is now common. Some city-centre department stores have closed and even long-established retailers (零售商) have reported profit slumps. According to a recent survey, a record 2,481 shops disappeared from UK high streets last year — up by 40 percent.

As the BBC’s Emma Simpson writes, things have become a lot harder for traditional retailers in recent years. They have faced rising costs from wages, business rates and the requirement to introduce Europe’s new data law. But the biggest threat has come from online shopping. She says “Consumers now spend one in every five pounds online — and if businesses are seeing 20 percent fewer sales on the shop floor, as well as their fixed costs rising, then profit margins will be squeezed.”

While some of us like to window shop — browsing for things to buy, only to purchase them online at a discount — the fact is that, overall, shoppers are making fewer visits to high streets. Eventually, town centres could become like ghost towns. If people aren’t out and about shopping, they won't use other services, like cafes, restaurants and cinemas, which leads to job losses. The high street has also suffered from the arrival of big shopping malls, which offer a retail experience under one roof, with free parking, away from the bad weather!

Meanwhile, back on the high street, some shops still exist. Analysts have said it's those that have moved away from traditional retailing that are surviving. These include beauty salons, nail bars and independent coffee shops — but are these kinds of shops enough to keep the British high street open for business?

1.What do we know about “high street” according to the passage?

A.It sold only fashionable daily items.

B.It has changed people’s shopping habits.

C.It was a big shopping mall in downtown Britain.

D.It was the destination for people who love shopping in the UK.

2.Which is closest in meaning to the underlined word “slumps”?

A.Sharp fall. B.Steady rise.

C.Slow increase. D.Slight loss.

3.What’s the hardest part for traditional shop owners to run their shops?

A.The rising costs from wages.

B.The boom of window shopping.

C.The popularity of shopping online,

D.The introduction of Europe’s new data law.

4.What change is taking place in the British high street at present?

A.Discounts are offered to attract more consumers.

B.Parking is free of charge in time of bad weather.

C.Better service is provided to satisfy the customers.

D.Some conventional retailer turn to other businesses.


??? Have you ever dreamed of meeting top scientists in person? If so, what would you want to ask them?

For Tan Fanglin, a 15-year-old girl from No. 2 High School of East China Normal University in Shanghai, her dream of meeting top scientists has already come true. In October 2019, she attended the World Laureates Forum for a second time, which had attracted 44 Nobel Prize Winners and 21 other world-class award winners. Tan was by far the youngest participant among the scientists invited to be at the meeting of the world’s sharpest minds.

Her discovery about the relationship between the Fibonacci sequence (斐波那契数列) and Bézout numbers (贝祖数) has won her many prizes in youth innovation competitions both in Shanghai and elsewhere in China. Her finding has been praised by the famous Canadian mathematician, Professor Rankin, who has been studying the same theme for five years but with no conclusions.

From a very young age, Tan has always been fascinated by mathematics. This is largely because her father, who teaches mathematics in East China Normal University, has a profound impact on her. According to Xu Jun, the head teacher, Tan doesn’t take after-school classes or too many extra exercises either. Her mastering of Advanced Mathematics and her good grades in school are thanks to the right study method. Her mother told Guangming Daily that Tan always treats studying and life with a positive state of mind so she can feel happy while studying.

Attending this forum enabled Tan to get more inspiration from top scientists. She even got the opportunity to talk with Gero Miesenbock, the 2019 Warren Alpert Foundation Prize winner. She asked Professor Miesenbock what he considered were the best personal qualities for conducting scientific research. Miesenbock encouraged her not to lose her passion and love for what she does. He said that accepting failures is crucial for researchers. He stressed that people all knew that even Thomas Edison went through hundreds of unsuccessful attempts before finally inventing the light bulb. The words made Tan feel inspired and she promised to keep her curiosity and interests in mathematics and overcome any obstacles in her research.

1.What can we learn about Tan Fanglin according to paragraph 2?

A.She is a student from East China Normal University.

B.She frequently participates in the World laureates Forum.

C.She achieved her goal of meeting world-class award winners.

D.She was the youngest and sharpest mind among the invited scientists.

2.What made Tan so interested in the study of mathematics?

I liked sleeping lately at the weekend. My parents was often angry with me, but I didn’t take it serious. Last Saturday, a friend of me phoned me and we planned meet at the park at 8 o’clock the next morning. Watch my favorite movie until midnight, I went to bed even late than usual. I was so tired to hear the alarm and got up very late on the Saturday morning. When I got here my friends had already left. I felt so sorry for that.

??? Our peers(同辈)usually have a great influence on our lives. However, when it comes to learning valuable lessons about life, we learn much more from older people than our peers.

Unlike our peers, older people have a better understanding of life. 1. So we can learn more from their seasoned knowledge. Many of my friends spend little time on their lessons and they just use their time to have fun. However, my uncle has taught me that if I focus on studying instead of playing all the time, my life will be more fulfilling(有成就的)later on. 2.

Also, older people can point us in the right direction and away from the mistakes they have already made. If we simply follow our peers, we will often run into similar problems. 3. My brother tried out for the football team last year and did not make it. Many of his peers told him to give up on the sport forever. But my father helped him realize that giving up was not the answer. Then my brother practiced harder. 4. In the end, older people can help us make the right decisions when we are in difficulties.

5. Older people have more life experience, and they can give us excellent advice.

A.However, we can avoid them if we listen to and learn from our elders.

B.People who are your age are called peers.

C.Without his advice, I would not realize the importance of a good education.

D.In short, we learn more from older people than our peers.

E.That's because they have already been through it.

F.It's human nature to learn from other people in your age group.

G.This year, not only did he make the team, but he was also the captain.


??? In January 2017, I left a 30-year career in radio to find a new path. Fear, doubt, and anxiety filled my life at that time. I had no idea where life was going to take me.

Anything new in life can be exciting, but it can also come with anxiety. I was beginning a new career with little experience. The language on the ramp(舷梯)was foreign to me. What is involved with a “turn” (a plane being downloaded and loaded) was foreign to me. All of the excitement I had about this job on the first day was slowly changing to fear and doubt by week three.

After two weeks in the classroom, it was time for training on the ramp. On my first day as a trainee, I was partnered with a man named Fernando. My job was zone assist. A zone assist is usually at the back of the plane, bringing the belt loader(带式行李装载机)to the aircraft, unloading the back bins(箱子), servicing the drinking water, and wing walking at a push(紧急时). I was 48 years old at the time and had been without extreme physical activity since high school, so I was about to hit the ramp for the first time in extremely hot conditions.

Another deep fear I had, other than hurting myself, was damaging an airplane. Granted, things happen and we’re human. But making a mistake and damaging a plane that could lead to a delay or taking it out of service would be a disaster for a ramp agent. With that in mind, I was so nervous driving the belt loader up the airplane.

Fernando and I did eight turns that day. I don’t remember how many bags I downloaded. Eventually, I got through the day, tired and sore afterwards. Looking at the schedule for the next day, I believed I would do it better.

2.Which of the following is NOT the reason why the author nearly hit the ramp?

A.His physical condition. B.His carelessness.

C.The extreme physical work. D.The hot environment.

3.What made the author nervous at work?

A.Having an old partner. B.Being too tired.

C.Hurting himself. D.Damaging the plane.

4.What can we infer from the last paragraph?

A.The author would continue his new job. B.The author would change his job.

??? Famous and respected Chinese poet Yu Guangzhong, passed away at 89 in a hospital in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Born in Nanjing, East China’s Jiangsu Province in 1928, Yu fled with his family at the age of 9 to Chongqing during the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1931-1945). In 1947, he began studying at Jinling University in Nanjing, but later transferred to Xiamen University. In 1950, Yu and his family moved to Taiwan where he lived and worked until his death.

Xiangchou (Nostalgia), a four-stanza(节)poem that expressed the poet’s deep feelings for his motherland, is one of Yu’s most well-known and affectionate verses(深情的诗篇).

Published in 1971, the poem remains highly popular among Chinese speakers worldwide. Even those who know little about literature are familiar with lines from the poem: “When I was a child/ Nostalgia(乡愁)seemed a small stamp/ Here am I/ And there…my mother…”

Aside from his achievements in poetry, Yu was also a successful essay writer, critic(批评家)and translator.

“The reason why I stick to writing till today comes down to my passion(酷爱)for the Chinese language,” Yu told people in a 2015 interview, going on to explain that this passion was strengthened by his love for his mother and his motherland.

Yu’s death left many Chinese netizens(网民)shocked and heartbroken. Many lit virtual “candles” in honor of him on Chinese social media platforms.

“Mr. Yu’s poems often move me to tears when I read them. I have a collection of poetry that he once signed and it remains one of my most valuable treasures…R.I.P. Mr. Yu,” posted Yunan Province-based writer Mai Luoluo on Sina Weibo.

??? My sister and I were taught at a very early age to write thank-you letters for birthday and Christmas gifts. We carefully copied addresses from our mom’s address book into our own pretty little books, and a new box of stationery(信箋,信封)was always among my gifts under the tree. We wrote our letters on December 26 at the latest every year. It was an important tradition in our home, and it has turned me into an avid(热情)thank-you-letter writer as an adult.

I still send a great deal of personal mail, and I am extremely interested in all of the trappings of letter writing: unique stamps, beautiful stationery, fountain pens(自来水笔). I feel a mad rush of satisfaction sticking a stamp on a carefully penned thank-you letter and sending it off in the mail.

Several years ago, I even sent my mom a thank-you letter to thank her for teaching me to count my blessings on paper. Sending letters of thanks out into the world has made me more grateful for the love, support and kindness I receive daily.

My father died when I was twenty-seven. Even then, I found comfort in writing letters of thanks for the gifts of words I received. At a time when all I wanted to do was retreat(退缩)into my own sadness, the act of giving thanks forced me to stay connected to the world and to the lives of the living.

And while it may seem unimportant, my belief in well-written thank-you letters has protected my popularity. Since real thank-you letters are extremely few and far between, my social graces(风度)are considered as a charming difference from other people, and my friends and family always seem truly moved by my efforts.

1.What can we learn about the author’s family?

A.Her family liked to collect stationery.

B.Her family had a thank-you-letter writing tradition.

C.She often copied addresses for her mother.

D.They wrote thank-you letters on Dec 26.

2.How did the author feel when writing thank-you letters?

A.Satisfied. B.Tired. C.Excited. D.Bored.

3.What can we infer from the fourth paragraph?

A.The author felt happy to receive gifts from others.

B.The author’s father died when she was very young.

C.Writing thank-you letters made the author lead an active life.

D.Writing thank-you letters forced the author to talk with others.

4.What does the author intend to tell us?

A.Expressing thanks can protect what we have.

B.Receiving thank-you letters is truly moving.

C.Writing thank-you letters is difficult work.

D.Being grateful can help gain the respect.


??? It was Halloween(万圣节), which is a big deal when you’re seven. I was sitting in my Sleeping Beauty costume, eagerly waiting for my dad to come home so he could take me to go trick or treating. My father had been away on a business trip. He was supposed to return earlier that day, but it was midnight…Finally I nodded off.

The next morning I guessed that my mom had already known something I didn’t find out for another couple of days. It was my dad who had a new identity(身份): plane crash survivor.

The left wing was torn off, the fuselage(机身)split in two, and fire shot through the plane. Nearly half of the passengers died, but amazingly, my dad was unhurt. He couldn’t breathe because of the smoke, so he ran toward the exit and walked out.

My father told me when the plane crashed, he first thought of us. As sad as he felt at the thought of never seeing us again, he also felt a sense of relief(解脱)that all his business and financial(财务的)worries would be over. When he survived, he saw it as a second chance. He valued his second life, so he sold his business and started a new one. Now he is a successful businessman. I’m so proud of my dad for this.

It has been found that those who get up late 10.(be) more likely to postpone their bedtime than those who wake early every morning. The choices we make that affect our sleep could turn out to be pretty important for our health.

Don't visit news sites or turn on the news outside of the time, and avoid social media if you're reading too many updates there.

Focus on the fact that most people recover. Reports about the new coronavirus likely sound very scary, so it's understandable that you'd be afraid. 4.Besides, most people who get very sick will get better after receiving treatment and recover at last.

??? Every year, little black-and-white birds called pied flycatchers(斑姬鹟) travel from sub-Saharan Africa to northern Europe to feast on caterpillars (毛毛虫), claim a nest, and have babies. And they fly back a few months later. But recently, some flycatchers have arrived only to find their nesting sites occupied by great tits (大山雀). And those birds don’t just chase flycatchers away—they attack them, kill them, and eat their brains.

Great tits live in European forests all year round. Flycatchers are regular vacationers. Since the 1980s,? flycatchers’ reproductive season has been inching up earlier in the month of April. Warm spring temperatures have caused caterpillar populations to boom. To adapt to that, flycatchers arrive a bit earlier, too. That won’t be too big a problem. But now, tits delay their breeding period a bit in April, so they overlap with the flycatchers, and violence begins.

Moreover, there’s limited nesting space in many of these birds’ favorite foreststhe trees can be quite young and have very few tree holes where birds can nest. Volunteers and academics have placed nestboxes to help. But with climate change, birds’ breeding schedules getting closer, there aren’t enough nestboxes to go around. Unfriendly hosts—the tits, eat their brains.

“Great tits are superior competitors when it comes down to a fight, ” said Jelmer Samplonius, lead author of a study. “People see it as a cute garden bird, but some of them have a real anger management problem. ” Luckily, the murdered birds were often surplus males that arrive late. The deaths haven’t had a big impact on the population because those late males probably won’t have had babies anyway. But there’s always the chance that it could get worse.

“Whatever the flycatcher population’s future may hold, ” Samplonius said, “this is a good example of why it’s essential to study how climate change can shift animals’ schedules, often with deadly consequences. Understanding different responses to changing environments will be an important part of species assessments in coming years.”

1.What has happened to pied flycatchers recently?

A.They couldn’t get enough food.

B.Their nesting sites were destroyed.

C.Their babies have become less likely to survive.

D.Their lives have been threatened by another kind of birds.

2.Which is one of the causes of the violence between pied flycatchers and great tits?

C.The reduction of both birds’ favorite forests. D.The two birds’ sharing the same food.

3.Which can best describe great tits?

A.Ugly. B.Smart. C.Aggressive. D.Lazy.

4.What can be the best title for the text?

A.A terrible bird murder B.Birds’ struggle to hunt

??? Gretchen Altman is smiling, leaning back casually, a cup of coffee in hand — Hills Bros. Coffee, to be precise. It looks like a casual shot, but if you hit like, leave a comment, and tag a friend, you can get three different cups of coffee, for free.

Altman is part of a growing trend of "micro-influencers". She has a small following — around 6,000 on Instagram (社交平台).Her going rate is $300 to $800 to promote something. She does some posts in exchange for free goods, as long as it's stuff she believes in.

As a micro-influencer she has a much closer relationship with her followers than a big social media star. "I'm just living a normal life and people relate to that," she says. "They just feel like I'm a friend of theirs."

But it worries consumer rights groups. Several recent studies have found that young audiences are largely unable to understand when something is sponsored content.

In some cases, it's clear. When a big star takes to a social media to advertise Coca-Cola, for example, the assumption is that he or she's probably getting paid to do so. And the posts are clearly labeled as ads, with the caption "advertisement" or "sponsored content".

But what happens when an everyday person with just a couple thousand followers takes to social media to extol(颂扬)the virtues of a product? The motivations are not so clear-cut. The problem with these social media posts is that you don't know whether it's an ad or not.

Altman is diligent about using those hashtags(标签).She loves what she does and sees it as a business, but she doesn't necessarily want to be a social media celebrity.

"With social media being so integrated into our everyday lives, we have this unique opportunity that I don't think anyone has ever had before where we can each be our own brand," Altman says.

1.What does a micro-influencer do according to the passage?

A.Offer enough likes. B.Recommend some comments.

C.Post to increase sales. D.Create advertisements.

2.What makes consumer rights groups feel worried?

A.Ads with caption on posts. B.The unclear motivations of the posts.

C.Sponsored ads content. D.The increasingly growing number of audiences

3.How does Gretchen Altman feel about being a micro-influencer?

A.Pleased B.Upset.

C.Ambitious. D.Disappointed.

4.Which of the following can be the best title?

A.We Can Each Be Our Own Top Brand

B.To be a Micro-influencer or to be a Big Star

C.Hills Bros. Coffee, Your Coffee

??? On a recent Wednesday morning, I woke up like a little kid on Christmas morning, filled with joy and excitement for the day ahead. The reason why I was so happy was that my 15-year-old daughter was coming home from overnight camp that day after being gone for four weeks.

That afternoon, as I watched her drop off the bus and run into my armsmy emotions took over and I started crying. As we hugged each other, I thought, “I'm never sending her back there again. This is just too much.” But who am I kidding? Not only is she planning on going back next year, she wants to go for eight weeks.

Sending my kid to a Wisconsin town five hours away and having no communication with her other than a few handwritten letters (no cell phones are allowed at camp) still freaks me out. But I have to say overnight camp was one of the best parenting decisions I’ve ever made.

It all started when my daughter was in middle school and going through the typical social problem that comes up around that age. She would come home crying so often because she felt constantly left out. Concerned about her unhappiness and lack of self-confidence, I felt like I had to do something. One day, it hit me: Overnight camp.

That first year we put her on the bus was terrifying. With her cell phone in a desk drawer at home, we said goodbye knowing we would have to wonder for 28 days how she really was.

Would she miss us so much that she'd cry every night? Would she be frightened? Would the girls be mean to her? We really had no idea what to expect, but we knew that if something was really wrong, we'd get a call. It turned out that that never happened, and the letters we got from her all shined with positivity. The changes I saw in my daughter’ s personal growth were immeasurable.

1.What does the underlined part “freaks me out" in Paragraph 3 mean?

A.cheers me up. B.gets me angry.

C.tires me out. D.makes me nervous.

A.Parents were all concerned about their children.

B.The author's daughter had a tough time at school.

C.Overnight camp was really of great value for her daughter.

D.The author sent her daughter to overnight camp for compromise.

3.What does the author's daughter think of overnight camp?

A.It has ruined her life. B.It puts her in low spirits.

C.It has benefited her a lot. D.It leaves her with little personal time.

4.What is the theme of the text?

A.To recommend overnight camp. B.To share a story of the author.

C.To show the importance of education. D.To demonstrate her love for her daughter.


Great Activities for Nature Lovers


One of the easiest and most accessible ways to get close to nature is by setting out on a good old fashioned hike. Hiking generally doesn’t require any fancy equipment or special skills, just a piece of map and a thirst for adventure. This activity can be as relaxing as you make it.

Backcountry Camping

Why limit yourself to just a day hike when you can have a full weekend (or longer) adventure? Backcountry camping involves packing your tent, sleeping gear, food, and water on your back to set up camp in a remote location. If you’re an experienced hiker and camper, this is an excellent way to test your survival skills and explore the wilderness.

Mountain and Road Biking

Unlike long hikes through the woods, biking allows you to cover more ground and travel farther in nature. Mountain biking typically involves riding up and down steep slopes, between trees, and over rocks. If this sounds too intense or your tires aren’t suited for rugged terrain, consider taking a road bike on paved trails through forest preserves or along country roads.


Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to travel beyond your own backyard to experience the beauty of nature every day. If your personality is less adventurous or your mobility restricted, consider planting a garden to grow your own vegetables, fruits, herbs, or flowers. There’s something truly satisfying about mixing up a salad with fresh ingredients you grew yourself. One of the best parts about spending time in nature is that it doesn’t have to break your budget and anyone can do it.

1.What does hiking need for hikers?

A.A world map. B.A strong desire.

C.Practical skills. D.Necessary equipment.

2.Where will you go to show your survival potential in the wild?

A.To a backyard. B.To a forest.

C.To a mountain. D.To a distant place.

3.Which of the following can take you to travel farthest?

A.Hiking B.Backcountry Camping

C.Gardening. D.Mountain and Road Biking

I took part in an English Speech Contest last week. As only competitor from our class, I had to compete with 14 other excellent participants selecting from the whole school. When it is my turn, I got a little bit nervous at first, but soon I calmed me down at the thought of my English teacher’s instructions. Then anything went smoothly. I performed so good that the judges and audiences gave me a big round of applause. Although the question-and-answer section was the most challenging, but I managed to get through properly. When the judge announced the finally result, I was excited that I won first prize, that was totally beyond my imagination.
