It’s rare that the protagonist in a Chinese movie wins the audience’s hearts with an emotionally uplifting message,rather than by showing off his or her good looks.But Wolf Warrior Ⅱ is putting China in the global spotlight.It’s also the first film to taste success both in terms of box office earnings and promoting Chinese values.

Kung fu artist Wu Jing both starred in and directed the action movie.Since its release on July 27,it’s earned an unimaginable 4.5 billion yuan,setting a record for domestic movies at the box office.The success of the film has surpassed the anticipations of all,including the production team.

The film focuses on a rescue operation in Africa,led by former special forces soldier Leng Feng—played by Wu.Leng helps Chinese workers and local Africans flee a war-torn and plague-ravaged country.Wolf Warrior Ⅱ links art to reality,and reminds people of the massive evacuation of Chinese people from Libya when civil war broke out there in 2011,and from Yemen in 2015,as well as the challenges the Ebola virus created in West Africa from 2013 to 2016.The film describes how the Chinese government aims to protect overseas Chinese citizens.Just as the message at the end of the film reads:“Citizens of the People’s Republic of China.When you encounter danger in a foreign land,do not give up! Please remember,at your back stands a strong motherland.”

Thanks to China’s increasing participation in global affairs,now could be considered the right moment to introduce a modern Chinese hero.

“Holding up a banner of peace,friendship and responsibility,Wolf Warrior Ⅱ should be seen as a brave effort to promote Chinese values around the world,” columnist Zhu Ping wrote in China Daily.

“It’s time Chinese filmmakers produced films that tell good stories and carry the right spirit.Let us assume Wolf Warrior Ⅱ has started that trend.”

语篇解读 本文是一篇影评:国产影片的主角不是通过展现颜值,而是因为传递了正能量而获得观众的喜爱,这点相当少见。但《战狼2》却令全球的焦点都汇聚到了中国身上。它同时也是首部在票房收入以及弘扬中国价值观方面获得双赢的电影。


5.We can learn from the passage that         .

A.leading characters in Chinese movies are mostly popular for their appearances

B.it is hard for a protagonist in Chinese movies to win the audience’s hearts

C.Wolf Warrior Ⅱ is the first Chinese movie to spread Chinese values

D.the production team is not surprised at the big box-office success

答案 A

解析 推理判断题。根据第一段第一句:国产影片的主角是通过传递正能量,而不是通过展现颜值而获得观众的喜爱,这点相当少见。可以推断出中国影片通常是靠颜值而流行的。故选A。

6.The film is popular with the audience mostly because         .

A.Kung fu artist Wu Jing both starred in and directed it

B.it attempts to promote Chinese values around the world

C.it is backed up and funded by the Chinese government

D.it shows that China is playing an active role in global affairs

答案 B

解析 推理判断题。根据第一段最后一句可知,它同时也是首部在票房收入以及弘扬中国价值观方面获得双赢的电影。可以判断出这部影片受欢迎主要是因为它向世界弘扬了中国价值观。故选B。

7.The underlined word in Para.3 can be replaced by         .

A.worry about   B.hang out

C.fall into   D.come across

答案 D

解析 词义猜测题。画线词所在句意为:当你在海外遭遇危险,不要放弃!请记住,在你身后,有强大的祖国作你的坚实后盾!可知encounter意为“遭遇”。worry about担心;hang out闲逛;fall into掉入;come across遇见,碰到。故选D。



As more people opt for the single life,adult friendships also grow more important.For people in relationships,having a reliable group is important,too—your mate will be much happier if you’re spreading your anxieties beyond his or her ears and you will also feel better.

In a recent study,researchers made some fascinating findings about how “who we are” informs the friendships we hold.The study was based on the most popular personality construct in contemporary psychology,the Big 5 personality traits(特征):extraversion,or how much you love attention and interacting with people;neuroticism,or how easily worried you are by things; agreeableness,or how warm and kind you are; conscientiousness,or how careful you are about life’s many duties; and openness to experience,or how much you’re into discovering new things,whether they’re ideas,people,or places.

For their study,the research team recruited 434 students.They took a personality questionnaire in the lab,then rated how satisfied they were with their friends and their life overall,and then researchers asked them to recommend half a dozen friends to rate their personality.Gathering these ratings together,the researchers found that openness to experience didn’t have anything to do with friendship satisfaction,at least in this study.Neuroticism was linked to lower satisfaction (probably because emotionally unstable people may be dramatic or hard to please,at least in my personal experience).But having high scores in the three remaining sunny traits—conscientiousness,extra version,and agreeableness—predicted higher friendship satisfaction.However,it’s a pretty intuitive(直觉的) result,since it’s easy to be friends with someone who’s always on time,always saying that you’re right,and always up to hang out.But if you don’t exactly identify with all that,fear not:Your personality is so much more than your traits.

It was a beautiful morning in New Mexico.I was running up the mountain.I was carrying a loaf of bread,two pounds of apples,and a fresh change of clothes.This is not a crazy dream I had.Like many people,I often run errands on my way to work.Unlike most people,I take the running part “word by word”.  12   I don’t drive.I rarely bike.So to get places,I run.In a typical week,I run about 70 miles.

I haven’t always run everywhere.  13  After a long but productive day,I woke up in the hospital—I was diagnosed with epilepsy(癫痫).There were medical tests to be taken and of course lots of forms to be filled in.I realized that where I thought I had answers,there were only questions.I was about to move to Santa Fe for a dream job.Would it be safe to live there alone?  14  What if I had a seizure(发作) while I was running,in this town I didn’t know,far from my family?So I sat down,and penned down what I planned to do.So it got started.

Running means independence.Running means I can rely on myself.  15   Now I still run everywhere,even if I don’t need to any more.  16   I cannot imagine my life without it.Running has taught me not to be afraid.To accept what comes.Even if people think I look silly when I am running.

A.No one believes in me.

B.Running means a choice.

C.As a matter of fact,I run everywhere.

D.And another question jumped at me in no time.

E.I know I will have to stop somewhere in my life.

F.It turns out that my illness hasn’t shaped me,but running has.

G.It started one evening more than eight years ago during a work trip.

Every May it happens.I drop to my knees,just outside the back door,raise my arms to the sky and shout,“That’s it!I give up!Take my flower beds,you killer weeds!Blackberry vines(藤蔓),this land is yours!Vines,climb up and kill my trees one by one!I’m done!”

Then I get up,lie down on the swing,and close my eyes.I’m sure I can hear the weeds growing and the vines creeping in(悄悄爬进).I swear they are all laughing at me,too.They don’t even have the manners to wait until I leave there.

There is no denying that gardens are battle zones in the spring.I blame it on those April and May rains.Once the heat moves in,I can control what gets watered and survives,but those early showers even out(平均分配) the battlefield.

Garden tools alone make it clear that gardening isn’t an easy thing.My old cart seems to have the personality of a tank,and I’m pretty sure my spade is second cousin to a dagger.

By late June,both sides are worn down.I’ve given some of the yard over to the weeds—you just can’t win them all.That’s a battle for next year.There is no clear victory for me,but I’ve stood my ground for yet another season.

Dear Peter,

I’m writing to ask whether you are able to do me a favor.

I want to have a pen friend,hopefully a girl in her early twenties,and with interests similar to mine.In my mind,she is someone who is interested in traveling,swimming,and playing table tennis.Besides,it would be better for her to have a pet dog as I have kept one at home for some time.With such a pen friend,I think I can share with her our traveling experiences,taking care of pets,or whatever we have in common.And I believe I will improve my English by doing so and learn more about her country.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
