1.阅读理解判断题: A foreigner’s first impression of the U.S. is likely to be that everyone is in a rush — often under pressure. City people appear always to be hurrying to get where they are going restlessly, seeking attention in a store, and elbowing others as they try to complete their errands(任务). Racing through daytime meals is part of life in this country. Working time is considered precious. Others in public eating places are waiting for you to finish so that they can be served and get back to work within the time allowed. Each person hurries to make room for the next person. If you don’t, waiters will hurry you. You also find drivers will be abrupt and that people will push past you. You will miss smiles, brief conversations, and small courtesies with strangers. Don’t take it personally. This is because people value time highly, and they resent someone else “wasting” it beyond a certain courtesy point. The view of time affects the importance we attach to patience. In the American system of values, patience is not a high priority. Many of us have what might be called “a short fuse”. We begin to move restlessly about if we feel time is slipping away without some return—be this in terms of pleasure, work value, or rest. Those coming from lands where time is looked upon differently may find this matter of place to be one of their most difficult adjustments in both business and daily life. Many newcomers to the States will miss the opening courtesy of a business call, for example, they will miss the ritual socializing that goes with a welcoming cup of tea or coffee that may be traditional in their own country. They may miss leisurely business chats in a café or coffeehouse. Normally, Americans do not assess their visitors in such relaxed surroundings over prolonged small talks. We seek out evidence of past performance rather than evaluate a business colleague through social courtesies. Since we generally asses and probe professionally rather than socially, we start talking business very quickly.
There are three kinds of goals: short-term, medium-range and long-term goals.
Short-term goals are those that usually deal with current activities, which we can apply on a daily basis. Such goals can be achieved in a week or less, or two weeks, or possibly, months. It should be remembered that just as a building is no stronger than its foundation, long-term goals cannot amount to very much without the achievement of solid short-term goals. Upon completing our short-term goals, we should date the occasion and then add new short-term goals that will build on those that have been completed.
The intermediate goals build on the foundation of the short-term goals. They might deal with just one term of school or the entire school year, or they could even extend for several years. Any time you move a step at a time, you should never allow yourself to become discouraged or overwhelmed. As you complete each step, you will enforce the belief in your ability to grow and succeed. And as your list of completion dates grow, your motivation and desire will increase.
Long-term goals may be related to our dreams of the future. They might cover five years or more. Life is not a static thing. We should never allow a long-term goal to limit us or our course of action.

1.完形填空:More and more teachers and parents have noticed another kind of pollution, which came from the printed papers sold on streets. These printed things look like newspaper but have hardly anything to do with them. You can only find reading materials badly ## there —some are too strange for anyone to believe, ## are frightening stories of something even worse. However, many of the young students are getting absorbed in such poisonous reading, which costs them what they should pay for their breakfast and bring them nightmares and immoral idea in return. Homework is left undone, daily games lost. These sellers shout on streets selling their papers well. The writers, publishers and printers, ## they are, we never know, are making their silent money. The sheep skinned wolf’s stories seem to have been forgotten once again. Why not forbid this kind of things at school? Yes, both teachers and parents have ask each other for more strict control of the young readers. Yet unfortunately, ## you want to forbid it, the more they want to have a look at it. Sometimes you may even find several children share one patched paper, which has travelled from one hand to another driven by the curious nature. It really does harm to our society. It has already formed a sort of moral pollution. The ## teachers and parents need more powerful support. Meanwhile, the young readers need more interesting books to help them get rid of these ugly papers.
