2016 届海南省海口市第一中学高三上学期第一次月考 英语
第一部分 第一节 阅读理解(共两节,6 篇 满分 52 分) A Like many new graduates, I left university full of hope for the future but with no real idea of what I wanted to do.My degree,with honors in English literature had not really prepared me for anything practical. I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world somehow, but I had no idea how to do that.That’s when I learned about the Lighthouse Project. I started my journey as a Lighthouse Project volunteer by reading as much as I could about the experiences of previous volunteers.I knew it would be a lot of hard work,and that I would be away from my family and friends for a very long time.In short,I did not take my decision to apply for the Lighthouse Project lightly.Neither did my family. Eventually, however, I won the support of my family, and I sent in all the paperwork needed for application.After countless interviews and presentations,I managed to stand out among the candidates and survive the test alone.Several months later,I finally received a call asking me to report for duty. I would be going to a small village near Abuja, Nigeria. Where? What? Nigeria? I had no idea.But I was about to find out. After completing my training, I was sent to the village that was small and desperately in need of proper accommodation. Though the local villagers were poor, they offered their homes, hearts, and food as if I were their own family. I was asked to lead a small team of local people in building a new schoolhouse.For the next year or so,I taught in that same schoolhouse.But I sometimes think I learned more from my students than they did from me. Sometime during that period,I realized that all those things that had seemed so strange or unusual to me no longer did, though I did not get anywhere with the local language, and I returned to the United States a different man.The Lighthouse Project had changed my life forever. 1.What do we know about the author? A.His dream at university was to become a volunteer. B.His university education focused on theoretical knowledge. C.He took pride in having contributed to the world. D.He felt honored to study English literature.

2.According to Paragraph 2,it is most likely that the author______. A.discussed his decision with his family B.asked previous volunteers about voluntary work C.attended special training to perform difficult tasks D.felt sad about having to leave his family and friends 3.In his application for the volunteer job,the author_______. A.participated in many discussions B.went through challenging survival tests C.wrote quite a few papers on voluntary work D.faced strong competition from other candidates

B I was never very neat, while my roommate Kate was extremely organized.Each of her objects had its place, but mine always hid somewhere.She even labeled(贴标签)everything.I always looked for everything.Over time,Kate got neater and I got messier.She would push my dirty clothing over,and I would lay my books on her tidy desk.So we both got tired of each other. War broke out one evening.Kate came into the room.Soon,I heard her screaming,“Take your shoes away! Why under my bed!”Deafened,I saw my shoes flying at me.I jumped to my feet and started yelling.She yelled back louder. The room was filled with anger.We could not have stayed together for a single minute but for a phone call.Kate answered it.From her end of the conversation,I could tell right away her grandma was seriously ill.When she hung up,she quickly crawled(爬)under her covers, sobbing. Obviously, that was something she should not go through alone. All of a sudden, a warm

feeling of sympathy rose up in my heart. Slowly,I collected the pencils,took back the books,made my bed,cleaned the socks and swept the floor,even on her side.I got so into my work that I even didn’t notice Kate had sat up. She was watching, her tears dried and her expression was such disbelief. Then, she reached out her hands to grasp mine.I looked up into her eyes.She smiled at me,“Thanks.” Kate and I stayed roommates for the rest of the year. We didn’t always agree, but we learned the key to living together:giving in, cleaning up and holding on. 6.What made Kate so angry one evening? A.She couldn’t find her books. B.She heard the author shouting loud. C.She got the news that her grandma was ill. D.She saw the author's shoes beneath her bed. 7.The author tidied up the room most probably because_____. A.she was scared by Kate’s anger B.she hated herself for being so messy C.she wanted to show her care D.she was asked by Kate to do so 8.How is Paragraph 1 mainly developed? A.By analyzing causes. C.By describing a process. B.By showing differences. D.By following time order.

9.What might be the best title for the story? A.My Friend Kate C. How to be Organized B. Hard Work Pays Off D. Learning to be Roommates C Here is some must-know information from a handbook on how people behave in doing business in some countries. In Brazil(巴西) Brazilians are warm and friendly.They often stand close when talking and it is common for them to touch the person on the shoulder.People often greet each other (particularly women)with light cheek kisses . Schedules tend to be flexible,with business meetings sometimes starting later

than planned.But to be safe,be on time.Meals can stretch for hours--there’s no such thing as rushing a meal in Brazil. Lunches also can start in the mid to late afternoon. Brazilians are social, preferring face-to-face communication over emails or phone calls. In Singapore Singaporeans shake hands when they meet and often also greet each other with a small,polite bow.Business cards should be offered and received with two hands.Arriving late is considered disrespectful.So be on time.Efficiency(效率)is the goal,so meetings and dealings often are fast-paced . Singaporeans are direct in their discussions , even when the subject is about money.Rank is important and authority is respected.This determines how people interact in meetings.For example,people avoid disagreeing outright with someone of a higher rank. In the United Arab Emirates In the UAE, status (地位) is important, so the most senior or oldest should be greeted first with their titles.The handshake seems to be longer than elsewhere.So do not pull away from the handshake. Women should cover themselves when it comes to dress. Men also tend to be covered from neck to elbows(肘部)and down to the knees. People do not avoid entertaining in their homes, but they also hold business meals at restaurants.Touching or passing food or eating with your left hand is to be avoided.When meetings are one-to-one, if your host offers you coffee,you should refuse.It might seem odd,but it is a cultural tradition.Coffee should only be accepted if it is already set out or presented. In Switzerland The Swiss tend to be formal and address each other by last name.They also are respectful of private lives.You should be careful not to ask about personal topics.Punctuality(守时)is vital, something that comes from a deep respect for others’ time.Arrive at any meeting or event a few minutes early to be safe.They also have clear structure in their companies.Higher-ups make the final decisions,even if others might disagree.Neat,clean dress is expected.The Swiss follow formal table manners.They also keep their hands visible at the table and their elbows off the table.It is polite to finish the food on your plate. 10.The passage is mainly about_______. A.communication types C.customs and social manners B.the workplace atmosphere D.1iving conditions and standards

11.Why do Singaporeans avoid arguing with their boss? A.They put efficiency in the first place. B. They dislike face-to-face communication. C.They want to finish meetings as quickly as possible. D.They are supposed to obey the person of a higher rank.

D By knowing what kind of learner you are,you can organize your study to best suit your particular way of learning. Visual learning style These learners like to draw, build, design and make things. They like looking at pictures and enjoy jigsaw puzzles and mazes.They tend to think in pictures rather than words. Verbal learning style These learners are very good at listening and are often very good speakers and story tellers.They think in words rather than pictures.They like to read and write,and usually have good memories for such things as names,dates and places. Logical learning style These learners are very logical. They easily recognize numerical and word patterns and look for logical connections between ideas.They like to figure things out for themselves and love solving problems.They enjoy working with abstract(抽象) ideas. Bodily learning style These learners like to move around a lot and to touch objects and people.They often wave their hands around when they are talking.They are good at physical activities,such as sport and dancing,and they enjoy making things with their hands. Naturalistic learning style

These learners love to be outside.They are interested in nature and are usually fond of animals.They are often involved with nature conservation groups.They are excellent at planning picnics and other outdoor activities.They like to understand how things in nature work. Music learning style These learners appreciate music . They are usually good at singing or playing musical instruments and can often compose(作) music.They are often very sensitive to noises around them and are sometimes easily distracted(分散注意力) by background noises. Interpersonal learning style These learners like to be surrounded by people.They usually have lots of friends and like to join groups and clubs.They ale often the leaders of any group they join and they are very good peace makers. Intrapersonal learning style These people are quite happy in their own company.They spend a lot of time thinking about things such as their dreams and hopes and their relationships with other people.They prefer to work alone and to follow their own interests. 14.If a person usually puts things into categories and sorts when probably________.

A.he(she)is not good at communicating with others B.his(her)individual ability is rather good C.he(she)is slow in thinking out the answers to problems D.his(her)relationship with others is always bad

17.The best title for this passage would be____________. A.How Should You Learn? C.Choose Your Style E Perhaps you think you could easily add to your happiness with more money.Strange as it may seem,if you’re unsatisfied,the issue(问题) is not a lack of means to meet your desires but a lack of desires--not that you cannot satisfy your tastes but that you don’t have enough tastes. Real riches consist of well-developed and hearty capacities(能力)to enjoy life.Most people are already swamped(淹没)with things.They eat,wear,go and talk too much.They live in too big a house with too many rooms, yet their house of life is a deserted hut(茅屋). Your house of life ought to be a mansion(豪宅),a royal palace. Every new taste,every additional interest, every fresh enthusiasm(热情) adds a room. Here are several rooms your house of life should have. Art should be a desire for you to develop simply because the world is full of beautiful things.If you only understood how to enjoy them and feed your spirit on them,they would make you as happy as to find plenty of ham and eggs when you’re hungry. Literature, classic literature, is a beautiful, richly furnished room where you might find many an hour of rest and refreshment.To gain that love would go toward making you a rich person,for a rich person is not someone who has a library but who likes a library. Music like Mozart’s and Bach’s shouldn’t be absent.Real riches are of the spirit.And when you’ve brought that spirit up to where classical music feeds it and makes you a little drunk.you have increased your thrills and bettered them.And life is a matter of thrills. Sports, without which you remain poor, mean a lot in life. No matter who you are, you would be more human,and your house of life would be better supported against the bad days,if you could,and did,play a bit. Whatever rooms you might add to your house of life,the secret of enjoying life is to keep adding. 18.The author intends to tell us that ________. A.true happiness lies in achieving wealth by fair means B.big houses are people’s most valued possessions B.How to Learn Best D.Learning Styles

C.big houses can in a sense bring richness of life D.true happiness comes from spiritual riches
