Most nations have at least one type of food that people from other countries think is unusual or unethical(不道德的) to eat.In France,people eat horse meat and frog legs.In South Korea and parts of China,restaurants serve dog meat.And in Australia,it’s common to cook kangaroo meat on the barbecue and use emu(鸸鹋) eggs to make pancakes.

The kangaroo and emu are native to Australia.Both animals are important to the national image of Australia and appear on the Australian coat of arms.They’re also central figures in the history of the indigenous(土生土长的) Australian Aboriginals(土著人).However,Aboriginal tribes still hunt these animals for their meat,fur and fat.

Today,Australian people continue to eat these animals.One of the reasons people eat kangaroo meat is that it’s high in protein and low in fat,so eating kangaroo is a good option for anyone on a diet.It’s also cheaper to eat kangaroo meat than other red meats.Because of this,a lot of university students choose to buy kangaroo meat.BBC News also reported that Australian scientists believe that eating kangaroo meat is good for the environment—kangaroos have different digestive systems than cows and sheep,meaning they produce less methane(甲烷),the second biggest contributor to global warming.

While emu meat is high in iron and vitamin C,most people don’t think it tastes good.For this reason,they prefer emu eggs.One egg is large enough to make seven omelettes(煎蛋).And while it’s illegal to collect emu eggs from the wild,they can be bought from emu farms.Rather than cracking the beautiful dark shell,it’s better to drain it by putting a small hole at each end and blowing.Afterwards,you can even carve a design into the eggshell.


5.The author mentioned the meat-eating customs of different countries at the beginning of the article to         .

A.present different cultures’ meat-eating preferences

B.suggest that people try to understand other countries’ diets

C.introduce the consumption of kangaroo meat and emu eggs in Australia

D.compare different eating habits among different countries


6.According to the article,the kangaroo         .

A.is not considered precious in Australia

B.is considered healthy and environmentally friendly to eat

C.faces extinction due to hunting by Aboriginal tribes

D.contains large amounts of iron and vitamins in its meat


7.Which of the following statements is TRUE about emu eggs?

A.Emu eggs taste terrible but are nutritious.

B.The shells of emu eggs are not difficult to break.

C.It’s common for Australians to collect emu eggs from the wild.

D.Emu egg shells can be used to create art.




“Plants were expected to get larger with increased carbon dioxide in atmosphere,but changes in temperature,humidity and nutrient availability seem to have trumped the benefits of increased carbon dioxide,” said researchers from the National University of Singapore.

45 percent of the species studied now reach smaller adult sizes than they did in the past.The researchers pointed out that warmer temperatures and changing habitats,caused by climate change,are possible reasons for shrinking creatures.

“We do not yet know the mechanisms involved,or why some organisms are getting smaller while others are unaffected,” the researchers said.“Until we understand more,we could be risking negative consequences that we can’ t yet quantify.”

The change was big in cold-blooded animals.Only two decades of warmer temperatures were enough to make reptiles smaller.An increase of 1 degree centigrade caused nearly a 10 percent increase in metabolism(新陈代谢).Greater use of energy resulted in tiny tortoises and little lizards.Fish are smaller now too.Though overfishing has played a part in reducing numbers,experiments show that warmer temperatures also stop fish growth.There is a recent report on warmer temperatures’ negative effects on plankton,the base of the marine ecosystem.

Warm-blooded animals weren’t immune from the size change caused by climate change.Many birds are now smaller.Mammals have been miniaturized too.Soay sheep are thinner.Red deer are weaker.And polar bears are smaller,compared with historical records.

This is not the first time this has happened in Earth’ s history.55 million years ago,a warming event similar to the current climate change caused bees,spiders and ants to shrink by 50 to 75 percent over several thousand years.That event happened over a longer time than the current climate change.

The speed of modern climate change could mean organisms may not respond or adapt quickly enough,especially those with long generation times.So,it is likely that more negative influences of climate change will be shown in future.


8.The best title for the passage is         .

A.Why Do Some Species Become Smaller?

B.Species Become Smaller with the Climate Getting Warmer

C.How Does Temperature Change in Earth’ s History?

D.Climate Change Has Many Negative Effects


9.Researchers from the National University of Singapore believe        .

A.all the animals on the earth have become smaller

B.too many studies on animals’ size have been done

C.how climate change affects animals’ size has not been found clearly

D.people can avoid the negative effects of climate change


10.The passage implies         .

A.birds have suffered more from climate change than fish

B.ants,bees and spiders have been shrinking by 50% to 70% in the past decade

C.a warming event causing species to become smaller has never happened before

D.climate change has even a negative impact on plankton


11.The author’s attitude to climate change in the passage is         .

A.indifferent  B.Optimistic     C.worried  D.confident





Camping without a campfire is not camping at all.Late-night conversations and games around the campfire are essential for a pleasant camping experience.However,you ought to be aware of the fact that camping with a campfire is not all about fun.  12   If you are planning to set up a campfire,or if you are planning to cook during camping,you should remember some fire safety tips.

Choose a campsite which has a campfire pit(深坑).  13   If there is no fire pit,set up your own.However,you should be careful not to place the fire pit near your camping tent.When you set up a campfire,make sure that you put the campfire materials in the right order.This can help you make sure that there will be no flying debris(碎片) once you light your fire.Put the light materials first such as paper or dry leaves.  14   Finally,make sure that you place stones around the campfire pit.Never burn plastics or other poisonous materials,which will disturb your neighboring campground guests.It will also significantly pollute the air and promote the risk of fire spreads.  15   Use it only when all the other fire-making options fail.

  16   Before you leave your campfire or before you go to bed,make sure that it is completely out.Leaving fire unattended runs high risks of forest fires and the like.

A.Then,put the wood.

B.Camping can give you a lot of freedom.

C.It needs a certain degree of responsibility.

D.One traditional camp activity is making the campfire.

E.This will ensure that you will be able to control your campfire.

F.Once your campfire is set up,do not leave the flame unattended.

G.Do not use petrol every time you attempt to light your campfire.

Journey to Mecca: In the Footsteps of Ibn Battuta

Ibn Battuta is considered one of the world’s greatest travellers. During the 14th century, he travelled about 75, 000 miles in search of knowledge and for the love of travel. To share the learning and research so highly valued by Islamic (伊斯兰教的) culture, the ruler of Morocco, Abu Inan Faris, wanted Ibn Battuta’s worldwide travels recorded and published when he returned home to Morocco after almost 30 years. Ibn Juzayy, a Moroccan Court Secretary, was appointed to write down Ibn Battuta’s experiences. His travel journal, The Rihla, documents this extraordinary achievement. It gives us a first-hand account of life in the 14th-century Muslim world. The original book, handwritten in Arabic, can be viewed today at the National Library in Paris.

The early 14th century was a favorable age for a Muslim traveller. It was nearing the end of the Golden Age of Islam, one of the great explosions of scientific and cultural achievements in world history. Caravans    and sea lanes created transportation and communication networks that spread across continents, including Europe, Africa and Asia. Towns and cities were regularly visited by merchants, traders, doctors, artists, craftsmen, scholars and pilgrims (朝圣者) carrying goods and ideas. All of these promoted the exchange of goods and ideas on a scale not seen previously in world history. As an educated man with professional legal skills, Ibn Battuta enjoyed kindness, companionship and offers of employment throughout the Islamic world.

Journey to Mecca describes the 5, 000-mile journey Ibn Battuta made in 1325 and 1326 from his hometown Tangier, Morocco, to reach Mecca, in what is now the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to make the pilgrimage. During this dangerous and awesome 18-month pilgrimage, he met many hindrances as he was attacked by robbers, troubled by thirst, and forced to go back to his route due to war along the Red Sea. Joining the legendary Damascus Caravan with thousands of pilgrims leaving for Mecca, he completed the final section of what would be his first of six journeys to Mecca.

The goal of the film, Journey to Mecca, was to tell the remarkable story of Ibn Battuta and to promote a better understanding of Islam in the West, said the producers.

24. We can conclude that Abu Inan Faris probably thought Ibn Battuta’s travel experiences ________.

A. precious     B. questionable      C. mysterious     D. ridiculous


25. What can we learn about Ibn Battuta from the text?

A. He wrote the travel journal, The Rihla, by himself.

B. He travelled all the way with the legendary Damascus Caravan during his first journey.

C. He was a very successful businessman.

D. He had to overcome varieties of difficulties while traveling.


26. The underlined word “hindrances” in Paragraph 3 can best be replaced by “________”.

A. tricks     B. friends        C. barriers     D. opportunities


27. In which section of a newspaper can we possibly find this passage?

A. History.     B. Travel.      C. Economy.    D. Entertainment.





Self-driving vehicles will rely on cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence (AI) to recognize and respond to road and traffic conditions, but sensing is the most effective for objects and movement in the neighborhood of the vehicle. Not everything important in a car’s environment will be caught by the vehicle’s camera. Another vehicle approaching at high speed on a collision (碰撞)track might not be visible until it’s too late. This is why vehicle-to-vehicle communication is undergoing rapid development. Our research shows that cars will need to be able to chat and cooperate on the road, although the technical challenges are considerable.

Applications for vehicle-to-vehicle communication range from vehicles driving together in a row, to safety messages about nearby emergency vehicles. Vehicles could alert each other to avoid collisions or share notices about passers-by and bicycles.

From as far as several hundred meters away, vehicles could exchange messages with one another or receive information from roadside units(RSUs)about nearby incidents or dangerous road conditions through 4G network A high level of A1 seems required for such vehicles, not only to self-drive from A to B, but also to react intelligently to messages received. Vehicles will need to plan, reason, strategize and adapt in the light of information received in real time and to carry out cooperative behaviors. For example, a group of autonomous vehicles might avoid a route together because of potential risks, or a vehicle could decide to drop someone off earlier due to messages received, a foreseen crowding ahead.

Further applications of vehicle-to-vehicle communication are still being researched, including how to perform cooperative behavior.

28. What is the first paragraph mainly about?

A. The reasons for the accidents by self-driving vehicles.

B. The research about applications for self-driving vehicles.

C. The importance of artificial intelligence of self-driving vehicles.

D. The reasons for developing communication between self-driving vehicles.


29. What does the underlined word “alert” mean in Paragraph 2?

A. Alarm.     B. Condemn.      C. Ignore.     D. Govern.


30. What can we learn about roadside units (RSUs)?

A. They classify the vehicles on the road.

B. They can improve bad road conditions.

C. They take over the passing vehicles.

D. They serve as efficient information stations.


31. What is the best title for the text?

A. When do vehicles communicate?

B. The reasons why a high level of AI is important

C. Vehicle-to-vehicle communication is coming

D. What do applications for vehicle-to-vehicle communication need?





Somewhere between 40,000 and 110,000 tons of plastic waste produced by Americans ends up in the ocean, according to a study published in the journal Science.

It’s difficult to point out where all that waste comes from, and researchers think that much or most of it probably comes from the nation’s seriously-populated coasts. But there’s also evidence that the nation’s inland waterways serve as a passage for plastic to travel thousands of miles into the oceans.

While researchers have documented plastic and human trash floating in the world’s oceans, there has been relatively little attention paid to plastics in rivers, streams and lakes. “To my knowledge, no one has studied particular routes, with the exception of places like L.A, and Baltimore Harbor where there are measures in place to prevent trash in rivers from entering the ocean.” said Kara Lavender Law, an oceanographer.

The few studies that exist, however, suggest that it may be a huge problem. A 2011 study of two southern California urban rivers—including Santa Ana River—found that every square meter of water contained from 125 to 819 pieces larger than 4.75 millimeters. Another survey of the Meuse River, which flows 575 miles through France. Belgium and the Netherlands to the North Sae, found that it contained 70,000 pieces of plastics per square meter of water, about 500 of which were roughly an inch or bigger in size.

If there’s anything positive in this, it’s you that can do something, at least on a personal level, to reduce the amount of plastic that goes into the oceans. “Put trash where it goes.” said Jenna Jambeck, an associate professor of environmental engineering at the University of Georgia. “Use reusable items—bags, cups and bottles—to reduce waste.”

Finally, Jambeck urges people to pick up litter along waterways, and record it with a phone app called the Marine Debris Tracker. The data you provide can help scientists to get a better handle on the trash problem.

Nowadays, people tend to take a selfie(自拍)wherever they are. However, not all of them can take a perfect selfie.  ___36___So I am going to give you some tips on how to get a perfect one.

Use Several Devices. Before you can even think about uploading a selfie on your social networking site, you need to decide which device to use in the first place. Although there are many devices you can use to take a selfie, the best one is a smart phone with a front and back camera. However, it doesn’t mean that your other devices can’t come in handy. ___37___In the end, all that matters is how well you practice and how to get the right shots.

Catch Good Lighting and Background. To capture a classic selfie, you have to pay close attention to the lighting and background. If you’re taking a selfie indoors, you are supposed to face a window or door where natural light is shining right on your face. This really brightens up the picture.__38___.

Aim for Unconventional Shots. For a refreshing twist, try taking a selfie with your pet.__39___One great thing about selfie is that you don’t need to wait for the right time or place. You can instantly reach out for your camera, strike a pose, and get a rocking selfie.

___40___Relax, enjoy and click ---these are the three basic rules you need to follow. A selfie is not an activity where you need to follow some guidelines or set rules.

A. Try to avoid the serious face.

B. Pretend to be very happy all the time.

C. Taking a selfie needs practice and skills.

D. You remember to show your best smiles there.

E. For an outdoor selfie, face the sun to make it work.

F. You just have to understand how each of them works.

G. It’s interesting to see what king of expression it will give.

Last week I went to visit my former neighbor, Mr. Yang. He and I used to living next to each other for many years. About half a year ago, news came which the old building, along with many other similar ones, were going to be pulled down to make a room for a main street. So they had to move apart. Mr. Yang now lives in the suburbs near a beautifully park. His apartment is much big than before. The only problem is that it took quite a long time to get to the downtown area. Therefore, Mr. Yang doesn’t seem to worry about the long distance. He says that a new subway line will be built in a few years and he is sure life will be better in the future.
