To my Charlie on his wedding day—
I know you think these notes are silly. I have watched you wear a long face over
the years when I give them to you. But understand that sometimes I want to tell
you something and I want to get it just right. Putting it down on paper helps me
do that. I wish I had been a better writer. I wish I had gone to college. If I
had, I think I would have studied English and maybe my vocabulary would have
improved. So many times I feel I am using the same words over and over. Like a
woman wearing the same dress every day. So boring!
What I want to say to you, Charley, is you are marrying a wonderful girl. I
think of Catherine in many ways like I think of Roberta. Like a daughter. She is
sweet and patient. You should be the same with her, Charley.
Here is what you are going to find out about marriage: you have to work at it
together. And you have to love three things. You have to love
1) Each other.
2) Your children (when you have some).
3) Your marriage.
What I mean by that last one is, there may be times that you fight, and
sometimes you and Catherine won’t even like each other. But those are the times
you have to love your marriage. It’s like a third party. Look at your wedding
photos. Look at any memories you’ve made. And if you believe in those memories,
they will pull you back together.
I’m very proud of you today, Charley. I am putting this in your tuxedo pocket
because I know how you lose things.
I love you every day!
25. Why did the mother write the letter to Charlie?
A. To congratulate her son. B. To give him some advice.
C. To show her pity. D. To talk things through.
26. What kind of feeling is mainly revealed in the letter?
A. Regret. B. Pride. C. Care. D. Complaint.
27. What is implied about Charley in the letter?
A. He is forgetful. B. He is patient. C. He is boring. D. He is worried.
My daughter went to see The Wild One recently and she commented that Marlon
Brando was wearing jeans so long ago. Of course he helped set the trend, so that
got me thinking about the link between films and trends in fashion. Fashion and
films have gone hand in hand for long. The Wild One is a good example: it
appeared in 1954, starring Brando. Dressed in a black leather motorcycle jacket,
leather cap and jeans, he created a look which is still considered “cool” today.
Everyone from Madonna to middle-aged men is seen wearing the classic leather
Another strong influence on fashion trends was Breakfast at Tiffany’s, starring
Audrey Hepburn. She made famous the simple black dress that looks perfect at
either a cocktail party or just standing around an expensive department store
like Tiffany’s with a pastry and coffee in your hand, as Audrey Hepburn does in
the film. She looks so elegant, wearing simple but beautiful dresses, big dark
glasses and a string of pearls around her neck. Audrey Hepburn still influences
women’s fashion with her “Tiffany’s look”.
In more modern times, the film star Uma Thurman created a major fashion trend
when she appeared in the film Pulp Fiction, made in 1994. Her style was very
simple. Her black trousers, crisp white shirt and hair style was copied by women
in the world.
Influencing fashion trends can often be about timing. The movie Memoirs of a
Geisha came just in time to start a trend in Japanese fashion. It started the
Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, who wore beautiful silk kimonos(和服), and it won an
Oscar for Costume Design. Many travel companies picked up on the trend and ran
“geisha trips” to Japan. The film has also led to a regained interest in
kimonos. It is now quite common to see young Japanese women wearing kimonos not
just on traditional occasions, but at various social events. The fashion is also
beginning to spread to western countries.
28. What is the best title of the passage?
A. Films and fashion. B. Stars’ fashion. C. Influential films. D. Film cultures.
29. Who will people associate Madonna wearing the leather motorcycle jacket
A. Zhang Ziyi. B. Audrey Hepburn. C. Uma Thurman. D. Marlon Brando.
30. What is implied in the film Breakfast in Tiffany’s according to the passage?
A. One can be active by wearing black.
B. One can be elegant by wearing simply.
C. One can be famous by looking perfect.
D. One can be stylish by eating at Tiffany’s.
31. What does the film Memoirs of a Geisha lead to?
A. The popularity of the Chinese actress. B. The worldwide reading of Geisha
C. The recovery of interest in kimonos. D. The “geisha trips” to social events.
I was born on the 17th of November 1828, in the village of Nam Ping, which is
about four miles southwest of the Portuguese Colony (殖民地) of Macao, and is
located on Pedro Island lying west of Macao, from which it is separated by a
channel of half a mile wide.
As early as 1834, an English lady, Mrs. Gutzlaff, wife of a missionary to China,
came to Macao. Supported by the Ladies’ Association in London for the promotion
of female education in India and the East, she immediately took up the work of
starting a girls’ school for Chinese girls, which was soon followed by the
opening of a boys’ school.
Mrs. Gutzlaff’s comprador(买办) happened to come from my village and was actually
my father’s friend and neighbor. It was through him that my parents heard about
Mrs. Gutzlaff’s school and it was doubtlessly through his influence and means
that my father got me admitted into the school. It has always been a mystery to
me why my parents should put me into a foreign school, instead of a traditional
Confucian school, where my big brother was placed. Most certainly such a step
would have been more suitable for Chinese public opinion, taste, and the wants
of the country, than to allow me to attend an English school. Moreover, a
Chinese belief is the only avenue in China that leads to political promotion,
influence, power and wealth. I can only guess that as foreign communication with
China was just beginning to grow, my parents hoped that it might be worthwhile
to put one of their sons to learning English. In this way he might become an
interpreter and have a more advantageous position to enter the business and
diplomatic world. I am wondering if that influenced my parents to put me into
Mrs. Gutzlaff’s School. As to what other sequences it has eventually brought
about in my later life, they were entirely left in the hands of God.
32. How was the author admitted to Mrs. Gutzlaff’s school?
A. Through his father’s request. B. Through his father’s friend’s help.
C. Through his own efforts to exams. D. Through Mrs. Gutzlaff’s influence.
33. Why did the author’s parents put him into an English school？
A. It met with Chinese public opinion. B. An English school was more
C. He could become a successful interpreter. D. Foreign trade with China was
34. What did the author think of his parents’ decision to put him into an
A. It was skeptical. B. It was wonderful. C. It was thoughtful. D. It was
35. What does the underlined word “sequences” in the last sentence probably mean
A. Results. B. Order. C. Series. D. Progress.
1. When chopsticks were invented?
In fact, before the invention of chopsticks, Chinese ancestors actually used
hands to eat, but how did they eat soup and porridge? 36 Chinese started to use

ancient Chinese invented chopsticks.
3. How to use Chinese chopsticks.
Using two slim sticks to pick up food is actually not difficult. You can do it

to pick up food. 38

Two years ago, Dubuque, Iowa, started its first annual "Back to School Bash"
program. It offered needy families an opportunity to learn about free 41 in the
community. Holmes decided to 42 by providing help to kids. He was 43 two jobs at
the time, one of which was working as a barber. Saturday was his 44 day, but he

that the kids should 46 their free haircut by having to read a book to him.

48 a favorite book, settle into the barber chair, and read aloud 49 Holmes was
doing their hair. After the haircut, they'd review the book, from the 50 and
vocabulary to the themes—just like in school, only more fun.
Holmes, who is married 51 two sons, recognizes that not every parent has the
time to 52 with their kids. So he hopes to offer some 53 in this way. And he
admits he, 54 , benefits from doing that.
There was a seven-year-old kid who 55 stuttered(结巴) over words while reading. He
had the boy take the book home and 56 . When the child came back a few days
later, he read it with no problems. That 57 Holmes to do more.
Holmes and his family have recently moved to a Chicago suburb. When they get 58
, he plans to restart his 59 as the Storybook Barber. "Today’s world is full of
guns and violence," he says, "The barbershop is a 60 place for the kids to come
and read books."

I have recently returned from 61 extended 26-day trip to China. I made two
earlier trips to China in 2012. On my previous visits my travel 62 (limit) to
the three major cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing. This time I, together
with my family, was able to visit some of the more remote cities and holiday
destinations 63 (miss) on the previous trips and revisit Beijing and Shanghai to
observe the great changes there in just four short years.
The many contradictions and 64 (struggle) within China today are very
impressive. No one can ignore the rich culture 65 (date) back to ancient times
changing into the modern age at a speed and scale that has never been witnessed.
66 happens in China, the third 67 (large) country in the world with 20 percent
of the world’s population, will 68 (certain) shape the immediate and distant
futures of 69 (we) all.
On this blog(博客) I will be posting a travel journal 70 photographs and drawings.

It was on a warm autumn day that my father and I walk into my new high school.
After registered in the classroom, the volunteer took me to my dormitory.
Altogether I had five roommates, two of which arrived later. I got to know my
new roommate immediately. Although I was quite unwilling to say “Goodbye” to my
father, but he had to leave to my hometown in the evening. I suddenly realized I
had grown up and that I had to look after me and live independently. Not until
then I know my senior high school life had real begun.

W: The printer won’t work. Is there something wrong with it?
M: I don’t see how the printer can fail.
W: Neither do I.
M: Maybe the power is cut off.
M: How was the restaurant where you ate last night?
W: The food was quite good, but the prices were shocking.
M: I know. It’s difficult to find a restaurant that has both good food and
W: Sir, did you see the “No Parking” sign ?
M: I won’t be here long. My wife will finish shopping in five minutes.
W: Sorry, sir. Not even for one minute! You’ll get fined if you don’t go!
M: I won’t have anything to wear for the interview on Monday unless I pick up my
clothes at the dry cleaners’.
W: Then you’d better hurry. It closes at noon on Sundays.
M: Oh! I should have gone there on Saturday.
M: Nancy , you see those girls over there? They need another player for a
volleyball game. Would you like to join them?
W: Seems like it’s a game for fun. Sure, I’ll be there soon.
W: Can I help you ?
M: Yes. I would like to open an account, please.
W: What sort of account do you have in mind?
M: I’m not sure. Perhaps you can give me some suggestions.
W:How much money do you plan to keep in your account on a regular basis?
M: I don’t have much money. I earn $500 a month and that covers all my expenses.
W: Oh, I see. You can open a current account, so that you can pay your bills.
M: Can you tell me what steps are involved?
W: Please fill out this form and let me see your ID card.
M: Here you are.
W: Yes, it’s OK. How much cash do you plan to deposit in your account today?
M: Morning, Sue. Did you enjoy your holiday in the country?
W: Yes, thanks. We had a great time. And some friends went with us.
M: Where did you stay? In a hotel?
W: No. We camped in the mountains, near Snowdon. We cooked all our meals over an
M: Sounds wonderful. Was the weather good?
W: The sun shone nearly every day and it didn’t rain at all.
M: Did you like the people there?
W: Yes, they were great. We met some farmers and had tea in their houses. What
about you? Did you have a good holiday?
M: Yes, but I didn’t do much. I just stayed at home. The weather was terrible.
W: Can I help you?
M: Yes. My daughter bought this mobile phone here for my wife’s birthday. But it
doesn’t work. So I’d like to change it for another one.
W: I see. Let me have a look. Well, we’ll be happy to change it for you. But I
am afraid we don’t have another pink one.
M: Oh? What will I do then?
W: Would you like to choose a different color? We do have this mobile phone i n
black and orange.
M: My wife doesn’t like either of those colors.
W: If you want, we can order another mobile phone just like this one. There
wouldn’t be any extra charge for it.
M: That sounds fine. Would you please go ahead and do that?
W: We’d be very happy to but it’ll take at least a week. Maybe ten days. We’ll
call you when it comes in.
M: Thank you very much.
W: You are welcome.
W: Allen, What’s your major anyway?
M: Hotel manage ment.
W: Well, what do you want to do after you graduate?
M: Uh… I haven’t decided for sure, but I think I’d like to work for a hotel or
travel agency in this area. How about you?
W: Well, when I first started college, I wanted to major in French, but I
realized I might have a hard time finding a job using the language, so I changed
to computer science. With the right skills, landing a job in the computer
industry shouldn’t be as difficult.
M: So do you have a part-time job to support yourself through school?
W: Well, fortunately for me, I received a four-year academic scholarship that
pays for all of my tuition and books.
M: Wow, that’s great.
W: Yeah. How about you? Are you working your way through school?
M: yeah . I work as a waiter three times a week at a restaurant near campus.
W: How do you like your job?
M: It’s ok. The other workers are friendly, and the pay isn’t bad.
W: Do you have trou ble sleeping at night? Then maybe this is for you. When you
worry about getting to sleep and keep tossing and turning around, trying to find
a comfortable position, you’re probably only making matters worse. What happens
when you do that is that your heart rate actually increases, making it more
difficult to relax.
You may also have some bad habits that contribute to the problem. Do you often
rest during the day? Do you get very little exercise, or do you exercise a lot
late in the day? Have you already got enough sleep, or do you sleep late on
weekends? Any or all of these might be leading to your sleeplessness influencing
your body’s natural clock. What should you do, then, on those sleepless nights?
Don’t bother with sleeping pills. They can actually make it worse later. The
best thing to do is to drink milk or eat cheese. These are all rich in a kind of
acid and help produce a chemical in the brain that controls sleep. That will
help you relax, and you’ll be on your way to getting a good night’s sleep. Until
tomorrow’s broadcast, this has been another in the series Tips for Good Health.
