There was a story many years ago of a school teacher--- Mrs. Thompson. She told the children on the first day that she loved them all the same. But that was a lie. There in the front row was a little boy named Teddy Stoddard. He didn‘t play well with the other children and he always needed a bath. She did not like him.
Then Mrs. Thompson got to know that Teddy was actually a very good boy before the death of his mother. Mrs. Thompson was ashamed of herself. She felt even worse when, like all her other students, Teddy brought her a Christmas present too. It was his mother‘s perfume(香水)。
Teddy said, ―Mrs. Thompson, today you smell just like my Mom used to.‖ After the children left she cried for at least an hour. On that very day, she stopped teaching reading, writing and math. Instead, she began to teach children.
Mrs. Thompson paid p articular attention to Teddy. The boy‘s mind seemed to come alive. The more she encourage him, the faster he improved. By the end of the sixth grade, Teddy had become one of the smartest children in the class.
Six years went by before she got a note from Teddy. He wrote that he had finished high school, third in his class, and she was still the best teacher he ever had in his whole lift. He went to college. Mrs. Thompson got two more letters from him with the last one signed, Theodore F. Stoddard, M. D.(医学博士).
The story doesn‘t end there. On his wedding day, Dr. Stoddard whispered in Mrs. Thompson‘s ear, ―Thank you, Mrs. Thompson, fo r believing in me. You made me feel important and showed me that I could make a difference.‖
Mrs. Thompson, with tears in he r eyes, whispered back, ―Teddy, you have it all wrong. You were the one who taught me that I could make a difference. I didn‘t know how to teach until I met you.‖

The Queen‘s English is now sounding less upper-class, a scientific study of the Queen‘s Christmas broadcasts had found. Researchers have studied each of her messages to the Commonwealth countries since 1952 to find out the change in her pronunciation from the noble Upper Received to the Standard Received.
Jonathan Harrington, a professor at Germany‘s University of Munich, wanted to discover whether accent (口音) changers recorded over the past half century would take place within one person. ―As far as I know, there just is nobody else for whom there is this sort of broadcast records,‖ he said.
He said the noble way of pronouncing vowels (元音) had gradually lost ground as the noble upper-class accent over the past years. ―Her accent sounds slightly less noble than it did 50 years ago. But these are very, very small and slow changes that we don‘t notice from year to year.‖
―We may be able to relate it to changes in the social classes,‖ he told The Daily Telegraph, a British newspaper. ―In 1952 she would have been hears saying ?th et men in the bleck he t‘. Now it would be ?that man in the black hat‘. And ?hame‘ rather than ?home‘. In the 1950s she would have been ?lorst‘, but by the 1970s ?lost‘.‖
The Queen‘s broadcast is a personal message to the Commonwealth countries. Each Christmas, the 10-minute broadcast is put on TV at 3 pm in Britain as many families are recovering from their traditional turkey lunch. (传统火鸡午餐).
The results were published (发表) in the Journal of Phonetics.
45. The Queen‘s broadcasts were chosen for the study mainly because ______.
A.she has been Queen for many years
B.she has a less upper-class accent now
C.her speeches are familiar to many people
D.her speeches have been recorded for 50 years
46. Which of the following is an example of a less noble accent in English?
47. We may infer from the text that the Journal of Phonetics is a magazine on _________.
A. speech sounds
B. Christmas customs
C. TV broadcasting
D. personal messages
48. What is the text mainly about?
A. The relationship between accents and social classes.
B. The Queen‘s Christmas speeches on TV.
C. The changes in a person‘s accent.
D. The recent development of the English language.
Do you know of anyone who uses the truth to deceive (欺骗)? When someone tells you something that is true, but leaves out important in formation that should be included, he can give you a false picture.
For example, some might say, ―I just won a hundred dollars on the lottery (彩票). It was great. I took that dollar ticket back to the store and turned it in for on e hundred dollars!‖
This guy‘s a winner, right? Maybe, maybe not. We then discover that he bought $200 worth of tickets, and only on e was a winner. He‘s really a big lose r!
He didn‘t say anything that was false, but he left out important information on purpose. That‘s called a half-truth. Half-truths are not technically lies, but they are just as dishonest.
Some politicians often use this trick. Let‘s say that during Governor Smith‘s last term, her state lost one million jobs and gained three million jobs. Then she seeks another term. One of her opponents(对手) says, ―During Governor Smith‘s term, the state lost one million jobs!‖ that‘s true. However, and honest statement would have been, ―During Governor Smith‘s term, the state had a net gain of two million jobs.‖Advertisers(广告商) will sometimes use half-truths. It‘s against the law to make false statements so they try to mislead you with the truth. An advertisement might say, ―Nine out of ten doctors advised their patients to take Yucky Pills to cure toothache.‖ It fails to mention that they only asked ten doctors and nine of them work for the Yucky Company.
This kind of deception happens too of often. It‘s a sad fact of life: Lies are lies, and sometimes the truth can lie as well.
49. How much did the lottery winner lose?
A. One hundred dollars.
B. Two hundred dollars.
C. Three hundred dollars.

51. What do the underline words ―net gain‖ in Paragraph 5 mean?
A. final increase
B. big advantage
C. large share
D. total saving
52. What can we know from the example of the Yucky Pill advertisement?
A.False statements are easy to see through.
B.Half-truths are often used to mislead people.
C.Doctors like to act in advertisements.
D.Advertisements are based on facts.
Something in chocolate could be used to stop coughs and lead to more effective medicines, say UK researchers.
Their study found that theobromine, found in cocoa, was nearly a third more effective in stopping coughs than codeine, which was considered the best cough medicine at present.
The Imperial College London researchers who published their results online said the discovery could lead to more effective cough treatment. ―While coughing is not necessarily harmful(有害的) it can have a major effect on the quality of life, and this discovery could be a huge step forward in treating this problem,‖ said Profes sor Peter Barnes.
Ten healthy volunteers(志愿者) were given theobromine, codeine or placebo, a pill that contains no medicine, during the experiment. Neither the volunteers nor the researchers knew who received which pill. The researchers then measured levels of capsaicin, which is used in research to cause coughing and as a sign of how well the medicine are stopping coughs.
The team found that, when the volunteers were given theobromine, the capsaicin need to produce a cough was around a third higher than in the placebo group. When they were given codeine they need only slightly higher levers of capsaicin to cause a cough compared with the placebo.
The researchers said that theobromine worked by keeping down a verve activity(神经活动), which cause coughing. They also found that unlike some standard cough treatments, theobromine caused no side effects such as sleepiness.
53. According to Professor Barnes, theobromine ______.
A. cannot be as effective as codeine
B. can be harmful t o people‘s health
C. cannot be separated from chocolate
D. can be a more effective cure for coughs
54. What was used in the experiment to cause coughing?
55. We learn from the text that volunteers in the experiment _____.
A. were patients with bad coughs
B. were divided into the three groups
C. received standard treatments
D. suffered little side effects
56. Which of the following would be the best title for the text?
A. Codeine: A New Medicine
B. Chocolate May Cure Coughs
C. Cough Treatment: A Hard Case B. Theobromine Can Cause Coughs

June 8, 2008
I‘m glad to receive your letter asking for my advice on how to learn Chinese well.
Here are a few suggestions. First, it is important to take a Chinese course, as you‘ll be a ble
to learn from the teacher and practice with your fellow students. Then, it also helps to watch TV
and read books, newspapers and magazines in Chinese whenever possible.
Besides, it should be a good idea to learn and sing Chinese songs, because by doi ng so you‘ll learn and remember Chinese words more easily. You can also make more Chinese friends. They will tell you a lot about China and help you learn Chinese.
Try and write me in Chinese next time.
