Worse than simply being denied admission(拒绝接收)，the school didn’t reply to her at all.It wasn’t a matter of her school records，but of her skin color：Wallsis African American，and in those days，that fact alone closed a lot of doors. “I was sad and I was hurt,”Walls told ABC News.“I

She is my mom, Lili. When I was nine, Lili quitted her job and started her own business. She said she didn’t want to stay at home and work as a housewife: “It’s a waste of life.” Lili became so busy that she spent less and less time with me. She didn’t help me with my schoolwork.

One reason is that people are having children much older than before, meaning they have fewer years in which they can have them. After years at university, they need a few years of work experience before they can get the job they want. They might then get married, but it’s incredibly expensive to buy a house in the UK. The above explains why young British people now don’t move out of their parents’ home until they are around 30 years old on average. It is not until they are 30 that they can afford their own home. Increasingly, it is not until that age that they can afford to get married and start a new life in a new home. It’s only after this age that many young people start thinking about having a child. So a British person manages to get a job, get a home and get married. Why isn’t he or she then having at least two children on average? The main reason is that it is quite expensive to bring up a child in the UK. Why is it expensive? Well, these days, both parents need to work just to pay for their home and living expenses. Because both parents are at work, that means they then need to pay someone to look after their child during the day. Paying for this childcare is nearly always expensive. The recent financial crisis is making things even harder for families, since unemployment is rising and even fewer people can afford to have children. With so much pressure on families, is it any surprise that the divorce rate is so high? So what is Britain doing to try and save the British family? The government is trying to make it cheaper to have children. For example, there have been increases in money families can claim from the state each month. Also, there are increasing government subsidies for nursery schools, so that parents do not need to pay so much for child care. The government is also trying to reduce the number of hours British parents have to work to earn enough money to pay their bills. If parents didn’t have to work so many hours, they’d have more time to spend with their children and wouldn’t need to spend so much on childcare. On average, a Briton works 49 hours a week, which is the most in Europe. The state is now considering introducing laws to encourage companies to improve their employees’ work-life balance. Let’s hope they’re not too late to save the British family. Otherwise, the British will always be too tired, and won’t have enough time and money, to have children. 16.Young British people live in their parents’ home until around 30 because A．They are allowed to get married at 30 .
B．they can’t find jobs to support themselves C．they can’t afford a house of their own until then D．they enjoy family life with their parents 17.The British are now having fewer children than before for all the following reasons EXCEPT that . A．they have fewer years to have children B．they live much shorter lives than before C．it is more expensive to bring up a child D．people are losing their jobs because of the recent financial crisis 18.To make it cheaper to have children, the British government is A．bringing down prices B．raising the salaries of parents C．reducing family income tax D．increasing subsidies for families and nursery schools 19.It can be inferred from the text that . .
A．with long work hours, it is hard for British parents to balance life and work B．more and more families in Britain are breaking up because they are having fewer children C．among Europeans, British people work hardest and earn the least D．childcare takes up too much energy and time for the British 20.The underlined word “subsidies” in Paragraph 5 means _________. A．food paid by the government B．school buildings for poor students C．free transportation D．money from the government to benefit the public 【答案】 16.C 17.B 18.D 19.A 20.D
【解析】 试题分析：本文介绍了英国人的孩子越来越少，生孩子的年龄越来越大。文章中分析了具体 的原因，也提及了英国政府为了解决这个问题做出了很多的努力。 16.C 细节题。根据第二段 3，4 行 Increasingly, it is not until that age that they can afford to get married and start a new life in a new home 可知直到 30 岁左右，英国人才买得起房子，才能搬 出去住，故 C 正确。 17.B 细节题。根据 1,3,4 段 meaning they have fewer years in which they can have them.和 The recent financial crisis is making things even harder for families,以及 The main reason is that it is quite expensive to bring up a child in the UK.可知 ACD 三项都是原因。B 项文章没有提及。 18.D 细节题。根据文章倒数第二段 The government is trying to make it cheaper to have children. For example, there have been increases in money families can claim from the state each month. Also, there are increasing government subsidies for nursery schools, so that parents do not need to pay so much for child care. 说明 D 项是英国政府所采取的措施。 19.A 推断题。根据文章最后一段前 3 行 The government is also trying to reduce the number of hours British parents have to work to earn enough money to pay their bills. If parents didn’t have to work so many hours, they’d have more time to spend with their children and wouldn’t need to spend so much on childcare.说明工作时间太长，英国人很难能够照顾孩子。所以英国政府就 减少人们的工作时间，让人们有更多的时间来照顾孩子。故 A 正确。 20.D 推理题。根据本句 there are increasing government subsidies for nursery schools, so that parents do not need to pay so much for child care.说明有越来越多的政府补贴，让父母亲在照顾 孩子方面不要付太多的钱了。故该词是指 D 项。 考点：考查社会现象列短文阅读 点评：本文介绍了英国人的孩子越来越少，生孩子的年龄越来越大。文章中分析了具体的原 因，也提及了英国政府为了解决这个问题做出了很多的努力。本文要求考生在阅读理解整体 语篇的基础上，把握文章的真正内涵。要吃透文章的字面意思，从字里行间捕捉有用的提示 和线索，这是推理的前提和基础;要对文字的表面信息进行挖掘加工，由表入里，由浅入深， 从具体到抽象，从非凡到一般，通过分析、综合、判定等，进行深层处理，符合逻辑地推理。 不能就是论事，断章取义，以偏概全。要忠实于原文，以文章提供的事实和线索为依据。 四、信息匹配 以下是一些夏令营活动的简介： A．Cedar Ridge Camp Cedar Ridge Camp provides a traditional camp experience for boys aged 6-16.The Camp offers a safe and friendly environment where children will develop physical skills.

Trevor, my husband, parked his bike outside the back door as he usually does. After putting in 10 hours of labor, he returned to find his bike gone. The bike, a black Kona 18 speed, was our only transport. Trevor used it to get to work, putting in 60-hour weeks to support his young family. I was so sad that someone would steal our bike that I wrote to the newspaper and told them our story. Shortly after that, several people in our area offered to help. One wonderful stranger even bought a bike, then called my husband to pick it up. Once again my husband had a way to get to and from his job. It really is an honor that a complete stranger would go out of their way for someone they have never met before. People say that a smile can be passed from one person to another, but acts of kindness from strangers are even more so. This experience has had a spreading effect in our lives because it strengthened our faith in humanity（人性）as a whole. No matter how big or how small, an act of kindness shows that someone cares. And the results can be everlasting. [写作内容] 1．以 30 字概括短文的内容。 2．以约定 120 个词表达你对“助人为乐”的看法，包括下面内容：

The author thinks highly of the acts of kindness and believes it will influence many other people. This reminds me of my experience when I was eight years old. I was left alone at home, doing my homework when an old man knocked at my door and begged for food. He was in rags and tired, obviously coming from a long distance. I hesitated at that moment because my family was not well off. But when I saw his worried look, I filled his bowl with rice. He was very thankful to me and said that I would be rewarded for my kind heart. Many years have passed, I still well remember that I have ever given a hand to an old man who was in need. Nowadays, some people claim to have been cheated out of money when they try to offer help to others. However, I still insist that the acts of kindness should be encouraged. If everyone is willing to hold out their hands to those in trouble, there will be fewer problems in this world. 【解析】 试题分析：本文首先描述了丢了自行车后来得到了很多人的帮助，作者认为这样的善意的行 为对其他人有很好的影响。你对“助人为乐”的看法，可以叙述一次你得到别人帮助的具体的 经历来说明助人为乐的社会价值。你认为这个社会应该需要助人为乐的精神，因为助人为乐 能够让我们的社会更和谐更美好。要求考生在保证内容要点全部概括的基础上可以充分发挥 自己的想象，进而用自己的语言来表达某种观点或看法，增添了写作的灵活性，同时能较好 地考查考生的想象能力和英语语言表达能力 考点：考查半开放性作文 点评：开放性作文只给出了一个话题，给考生自由发挥的余地很大。对于考生的综合能力要 求较高，要求考生有很强的谋篇布局的能力和组织要点的能力。在完成开放性作文时，首先 要选择自己熟悉的短语或者句型，在你的能力范围之内，选择句式时要赋予变化，因为这样 你才可以更好的驾驭。同时也要选择合适的连接词，把各个要点组织成一个完整的整体，如 besides, further, last but not least 等。在发表个人观点的时候，可以使用谚语来提升整个文章 的档次和文采，也能增加得高分的可能性。
