高三英语练习( 高三英语练习(五) A What makes a house a home? Not size, of course. I've been in some of the grandest houses in America, and it's readily apparent no one lives there. Earlier this year, I had dinner in a mud hut in Ethiopia, where we sat on chairs next to the hostess's bed -- a home that had more warmth than any house I've been in since. Now John Edwards is exploring what makes a house a home in his just-released Home: he Blueprints of Our Lives. There Edwards writes, " This is a book about homes, the values they rest on, the dreams they are filled with, and the people they have shaped. The houses and circumstances are different, but much of what you find inside will be familiar." Whether you're sitting in an airport right now, waiting to fly to your childhood home for Thanksgiving, or in your own home waiting for the relatives to arrive, you know what he's talking about. We've lived in our townhouse for 21 years. The loose windows that make noise in the wind. The fireplace so shallow it holds only one log. The kitchen window that offers a view of the world passing by. It's where friends sit on the kitchen counter drinking wine while dinner is being fixed. I lived there for only 18, but it will always be my true home. Even the lamp in the west living room window, which I could see far down the road when driving home late at night, still shines. While all this talk about childhood memories can be warm and comforting, home is whom you're with, not where you are. As Edwards writes, "Home is family. Home is safety. Home is faith." Happy homecoming.

B Once upon a time there was a wise man that used to go to the sea to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. One day he was walking along the shore. As he looked down at the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought that someone would dance on the beach. So he began to walk faster to catch up. As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn't dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and throwing it into the ocean. As he got closer, he called out, "Good morning! What are you doing?'' The young man paused, looked up and replied, "Throwing starfishes (海星) in the ocean." "I guess I should have asked, why are you rowing starfishes in the ocean?" "The sun is up and the tide is going out. And if I don't throw them in, they'll die" "But, young man, don't you realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfishes all along it. You can't possibly make a difference!" The young man listened politely. Then he bent down, picked another starfish and threw it into the sea, and said, "It made a difference for that one." There is something very special in each and every one of us. We have all been gifted with the ability to make a difference. And if we can know that gift, we will gain through the strength of our vision of the power (力量) to shape the future. We must each find our starfish. And if we throw our starfish wisely and well, the world will be better.

A. doing fulltime learning at school B. working in some big famous companies C. studying in their spare time D. studying abroad for two years D Football is different from most careers. There are no advertisements, applications forms or interviews. The employers, the football clubs, find players and offer them employment. The clubs look for young players with particular qualities and, most importantly, talent. The players should be very, very good and play for a leading club, they must be outstanding. Besides, they should have good team spirit, a strong character, mental strength and a positive attitude. Many countries have set up programs to encourage and develop young footballers, and this is where the clubs go to assess and find stars of the future. China has special football schools where children acquire ball skills as well as a formal education. In the UK, the clubs send scouts (球探) to discover talented boys and girls. They take part in training sessions, and play in the junior team. Some of them, if good enough, may become a paid member of staff at the age of
  16. During this time, they receive football instruction and play for the youth team, but it is not an easy life. After two years, only a few trainees are good enough to go on to the next stage. They are offered a contract (合同) with a club and their salary depends on t heir performance and how many matches their team wins. Perhaps, like David Beckham, one or two become great stars. However, football is a fiercely competitive job, so many players are not successful and have to leave the profession to find other careers. Little David was football crazy. He spent all his spare time kicking a ball. He dreamed of being a footballer and scoring goals in front of thousands of cheering fans. David's dream comes true. Now he is famous for haircuts and lifestyle as well as for scoring goals. David Beckham's story has a happy ending, but most of the children who have the same wish will never have the opportunity to play for a team. Dreams of the young, though they have done their best, do not always come true.
  67. What can we infer from the first paragraph? A. Footballers are all talents. B. Football clubs are all strict. C. Football employers know little about ads. D. Football career has its own characters.
  68. Why have many countries set up programs to develop young footballers? A. One right start is more important to footballers.
B. The young players can receive a formal education in this way. C. The football employers can find talented players in this way. D. Paid posts can be offered to the young players in this way.
  69. Why do many young players have to leave football game to find other careers? A. Because only a few are allowed to become stars. B. Because only a few can win the final. C. Because they can not stand the hard life. D. Because they are not offered any contracts with the clubs.
  70. What's the purpose of the last paragraph? A. The writer takes David as an example to make a conclusion. B. The writer takes David as an example to support his statements mentioned above. C. The writer proves David is really an excellent football talent. D. The writer warns young people against taking football as their careers.
