It was almost as if we had a sense of 2 to be sitting with the group of people 3 us. As we chatted away about our travel, I could hear people around us talked about 4 business meetings. It wasn’t long before 5 that these people were used to flying in luxury. They are 6 people I thought. We noticed that the stewardess(女乘务员) was working non-stop to ensure the 7 of the first class passengers. She could not walk by a seat without receiving 8 .

Ⅱ阅读理解 A Can you understand the beginning of this essay, “ My smmr hols wr CWOT. B4, we usd 2go2 NY 2C my bro, his GF &3 kds FTE” ? The Scottish teacher who received it in class had no idea what the girl who wrote it meant. The essay was written in a form of English used in cell phone text messages. Text messages (also called SMS) through cell phones became very popular in the late 1990s. At first, mobile phone companies thought that text messaging would be a good way to send messages to customers. But customers quickly began to use the text messaging service to send messages to each other. Teenagers in particular enjoyed using text messaging, and they began to create a new language for messages called “texting.” A text message is limited to 160 characters, including letters, spaces, and numbers so messages must be kept short. In addition, typing on the small keypad of a cell phone is difficult, so it’s common to make words shorter. In texting, a single letter or number can represent a word, like “r” for “are,” “u” for “you”, and “2” for “to”. Several letters can also represent a phrase, like “lol” for laughing out loud”. Another characteristic of texting is the leaving out of letters in a word, like spelling “please” as “pls”. Some parents and teachers worry that texting will make children bad spellers and bad writers. The student who wrote the essay at the top of this page said writing that way was more comfortable for her. (The essay said, “My summer holidays were a complete waste of time. Before, we used to go to New York to see my brother, his girlfriend, and their three kids face to face.”) Not everyone agrees that texting is a bad thing. Some experts say language always develop and this is just another way in which English is changing. Other people believe texting will disappear soon. New technology for voice messages may soon make text messages a thing of the past.
  1. Which characteristic of texting is NOT described in the passage? A. Using letters to represent words. C. Using letters to represent phrases. A. My Smmr Hols A. It costs too much B. CU in LA B. Using phrases to represent essays. D. Using numbers to represent words. C. My GF D. My Gr8 Tchr

  2. Which of the following was most probably the title of the student’s essay?
  3. Why do some people think that texting is bad? B. It’s too difficult to type. D. It’s not comfortable. C. Teenagers won’t learn to write correctly. A. Not many people use texting. B. Spelling in English is too difficult. C. Teenagers quickly become bored with texting. D. Texting will disappear because of new technology. B Have you ever argued with your loved ones over simple misunderstandings? Little wonder. We often believe we’re more skillful in getting our point across than we actually are, according to

  4. Why aren’t some people worried about the effect of texting?
Boza Keysar, a professor at the University of Chicago. In his recent study, he found that speakers who thought listeners understood were wrong nearly half the time. Here’s some good advice to reduce misunderstanding. (
  1) Don’t trust what you see from the listener. Listeners often nod, look at you or say “huh” to be polite or move the conversation along. But it’s easy to consider these as signs of understanding. (
  2) Train the editor in your head. If you say, “Beth discusses her problems with her husband”, it’s not clear whether she’s talking to her husband or about him. Try instead, “Beth talks to her husband about her problems”, or “Beth talks to others about the problems with her husband.” (
  3) Ask listeners to repeat your message. Introduce your request by saying, “I want to be sure I said that right.” Questions like “How does that sound?” or “Does that make sense?” may also work.. (
  4) Listen well. When on the receiving end, ask questions to be sure you’re on the same page. After all, it isn’t just the speaker’s job to make his speech understood.
  5. Why does the writer give us the advice? A. We’re not skillful enough to make clear sentences. B. Misunderstanding is ruining our normal lives. C. Misunderstanding occurs now and then. D. He has made a study of misunderstanding.
  6. The writer suggests that when talking to others, the speaker should . A. trust what the listener said B. look directly into the listener’s eyes C. first have a wide knowledge of body language D. make sure of getting himself understood
  7. By “Train the editor in your head”, the speakers are advised . A. to get themselves trained by a good editor B. to discuss problems with their husband or wife C. to express themselves in long but simple sentences D. to make sure each sentence has only one meaning
  8. The underlined part “you’re on the same page” in the passage means “”. A. you’re following the speaker closely B. you’re reading the same page as the speaker does C. you should know which page the speaker refers to D. your story is written on the same page as the speaker’s C Too much fishing has reduced fishery (渔场) populations by 90% or more from their highest recorded numbers. Some fishing seasons last only a few days because the catch limit is quickly reached. Two years ago Boris Worm, a Canadian scientist, predicted the risk of a worldwide fishery collapse (崩溃) by 20
  48. But a new study shows a management system called “catch shares”
could offer a solution. It divides the total permitted catch in a fishery into shares, which are bought and sold like shares of stock in a company. Shareholders in the fishery are each guaranteed a percentage of the catch. Catch share systems are common in Australia, New Zealand and Iceland. And they have been gaining popularity in the United States and Canada. Systems differ from place to place. But in general, experts set yearly limits on a fishery. The number of fish that each company or individual may catch is usually based on past averages. Shares become more valuable as fish population increases. With more fish in the fishery, catch limits also increase. Shareholders are supposed to think about the long-term health of the fishery. They have a greater interest to protect the supply than in traditional, open access fisheries. But does that really work? Researchers examined more than 50 years of records from 11,000 fisheries worldwide. They compared open access fisheries with 121 fisheries that use catch share systems. They found that almost a third of the traditional fisheries have collapsed. But the number was only half that for the catch share fisheries. The leading researcher Christopher Costello from the University of California, says the results is very hopeful and the system can improve the world’s fishing grounds and rebuilt collapsed fisheries. However, not everyone likes the idea. Some environmental activists say the catch share system makes a public resource into a private enterprise. Generally speaking, anybody can work a traditional fishery. There is no need to organize into a group or company. Yet if scientists’ warnings are correct, those fisheries may not have many fish left to catch by the middle of the century.
  9. By writing the passage, the author intends to . A. warn fishermen to save public resources C. call for a solution to collapsed fisheries A. the number of fisheries is on the increase B. the quantity of fish being caught is limited C. fishery populations are expected to decline D. the governments make a huge profit on the deal
  11. What can we learn from Paragraph 5? A. Catch share systems do protect fisheries to some degree. B. Catch share system is of no practical value as expected C. Overfishing has been common globally for over fifty years. D. Most traditional fisheries have collapsed due to overfishing.
  12. Which of the following is the direct effect of “catch shares”? A. The public can be free to fish in public fisheries. B. Traditional fisheries disappear soon. C. Some private enterprises control public fisheries. D. Fishery populations keep on falling with fewer fish.
B. discuss different ways to protect fisheries D. introduce catch share systems to readers

  10. Catch share systems are popular in some countries because .
