My senior year of high school was a very hectic one, to say the least. If I wasn’t studying or worrying about my grades, I was working on after-class activities. It seemed as if my life had turned into one crazy cloud of confusion and I hoped to find some sort of direction.
Finally, I got a part-time job at the local coffee shop. I had thought it would be easy and, for the most part, stress-free. I pictured myself pouring coffee and becoming close friends with my customers.
What I hadn’t expected was the people with so many orders. There were moments when I was very angry simply because I couldn’t seem to please anyone. There was always too much sugar, too little ice, or not enough skim milk. However, I kept at it.
One day, one of my customers came in, depressed. Before he left, I handed him a bag along with his iced coffee. He looked at me questioningly because he hadn’t ordered anything but the coffee. He opened the bag and saw his favorite doughnut (甜甜圈) I had given him. He smiled and thanked me before heading out into the rain.
The next evening, he came. Instead of ordering something, he handed me a single pink rose and a note.
Thanks for being so sweet and thoughtful yesterday. It is so nice to meet someone who’s warm and unselfish. Please don’t change your ways because I truly believe that you will do better. Have a great day!
As time went on, I did come across some customers really particular. But anytime I felt depressed, I thought of that man and his kindness. Then I would smile, hold my head up high, clear my throat and ask politely, “How can I help you?”
24. What does the underlined word “hectic” in Paragraph 1 mean?
A. Glad. B. Interesting. C. Productive. D. Busy.
25. What can we know about the author’s part-time job?
A. It is easy and stress-free. B. It is quite busy and challenging.
C. It doesn’t need special skills. D. It gives the author a feeling of freshness.
26. The customer’s note ________.
A. showed his thanks to the author. B. offered suggestions to the author.
C. encouraged the author to work harder. D. gave an explanation of his condition.
27. What does the author want to convey through the passage?
A. Kind words are worth much but cost little.
B. It is impossible to satisfy everyone in our life.
C. A small act of kindness can make a big difference.
D. Our attitude determines our suffering or our freedom.

Do you ever feel like you and your child are speaking two different languages? If so, you aren’t alone. Many parents find it hard to communicate with their child. Even adults who work with children every day —teachers or coaches —sometimes need some communication tips. Many times adults confuse communication with telling a child what to do. Telling a child to do his homework or get more sleep isn’t real communication. It’s important information that your child needs, but it lacks an important part of communication. It’s lacking the two-way exchange of feelings and ideas, which is the point of true communication. Healthy communication is the key to helping your child develop a healthy personality and good relationships with you. It gives your child a chance to become a happy, safe, healthy person, no matter what happens. So you know it’s important, but how should you do it? Effective communication between parents and children is not always easy. Children and adults have different communication styles and different ways of responding in a conversation. In addition, time and place can determine how successful communication will be. Parents should make time to talk with their children in a quiet, unhurried way. It’s also important that parents should be ready to listen whenever their child wants to talk, even if it’s an inconvenient time. The parents should be aware of their child’s facial expression and body language. Is your child nervous or uncomfortable —frowning(皱眉), drumming fingers, tapping a foot or looking at the clock? Or does your child seem relaxed? Is he or she smiling or looking at you in the eyes? Reading these signs will help you know how your child is feeling. 28. Which of the following belongs to real communication? A. Telling children to return home early after school. B. Reporting school results to parents. C. Listening to what children say and giving a reply. D. Answering the teacher’s questions in class. 29. The key to real communication is _______. A. a proper time B. various styles C. a two-way exchange D. good attitudes 30. Which of the following is NOT the factor affecting the communication between adults and children? A. Communication styles. B. Different languages. C. Different responding ways. D. Wrong time and place. 31. How can parents know their child’s feelings when communicating with their child? A. By reading their child’s body language and facial expressions. B. By making their child tell the truth. C. By giving the information that their child needs. D. By developing good relationships with their child
D
Born and raised in a digital age, today’s young people are generally tech savvy (技术娴熟的). But when it comes to basic life skills, they’re less capable than the older generation.
According to a recent study, 69 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds in the UK have no idea how to bleed a radiator(暖气片换水). About 35 percent of them don’t know how to sew on a button, while about 11 percent don’t understand how to change a light bulb or iron clothes.
It appears young people are losing the skills older generations took for granted. In fact, the problem is shared by young people in the United States. According to a report by Forbes in 2014, most millennial (千禧一代) drivers don’t know how to check their tire pressure. Cooking is another basic life skill that has been dropped, as millennials are much more likely to order food deliveries than previous generations.
Technology may be to blame for this generational gap. Skills at using phones and computers are the ones valued these days, and the practical skills are now seen as functions that can be easily outsourced (外包). Indeed, improvements in technology have made young people unfamiliar with many basic life skills. For example, with GPS always at hand, young people have had no need to learn how to read physical maps.
However, this change has raised concerns among many people. “If you have your master’s degree and you can’t live within your means or go home from your job and feed yourself a nutritious (有营养的) meal, you’re not a complete graduate,” Chris Moore, a professor from Brigham Young University, US, told HuffPost.
That’s why there’s an increasing call for the return of “home ec” in the US, short for home economics, which teaches basic life skills like cooking and how to do laundry. It was very popular in the early 20th century, but was later taken out of schools and universities because of budget(预算) cuts. But recently, home ec was reintroduced in a small number of schools and universities.
“The educational system would work better if every academic class had a practical course that applied the theory to do something regular people do in real life,” Robert Frost, instructor and flight controller at NASA, wrote on Quora, according to Huffpost.
32. Compared with previous generations, today’s young people are ________.
A. more capable in practical skills
B. more capable in technological skills
C. take changing light bulls and sewing for granted
D. less likely to order food deliveries
33. What is the reason for the gap between the present generation and previous ones?
A. Today’s young people are lazy.
B. Today’s young people are spoiled by their parents.
C. The economic situation of the past was worse than the present one.
D. Improvement in technology is to blame for it.
34. What can we conclude from the last three paragraphs?
A. The educational system would work better if practical courses are included in academic classes.
B. The change caused by improvements of technology raised many problems among people.
C. Home economics has returned in large scale.
D. Home economics teaches basic home technological skills.
35. What is the best title for the passage?
A. The improvements of technology.
B. Differences between the present and previous generations.
C. Young people’s lack of basic home skills.
D. The meaning and function of home economics.
第二节(共5小题,每小题2分,满分10分)
根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项,选项中有两项为多余选项。
Procrastination(拖延症) is a phenomenon we are familiar with. When we procrastinate, we waste
our free time and put off important tasks we should do till it’s too late. 36 Here, I will share some personal steps taken to overcome procrastination with great success. Break your work down into little parts. Part of the reason why we procrastinate is that we find the work too overwhelming (巨大的)for us. Break it down into little parts, and then focus on one part at a time. If you still procrastinate after doing so, break it down even further. 37 Change your environment. Look at your work desk and your room. Do they make you want to work or do they make you sleepy? 38 Create a detailed timeline with specific deadlines. Having just one deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate. That’s because we would get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back until it’s too late. 39 In this way, you know you have to finish each task by a certain date. 40 I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to people like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spend the 10 minutes doing nothing. The people we are with influence our behavior. A. It’s a bad habit eating us away and stopping us achieving greater success in life.
B. Hang out with people who inspire you to take action. C. Break down your project, and then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task. D. If it’s the latter, you should begin to change your workspace. E. Seek out someone who has already achieved the similar outcome to your goals. F. Having a companion makes the whole process much more fun. G. Soon, your task will be so simple that you will be thinking you can do it now.
