A.Las Vegas

Las Vegas is really a fascinating city, where you can dine in the finest restaurants, shop in the most luxurious stores, and watch world-class entertainment. Among them, the most attractive thing is gambling. Maybe you will become a millionaire or lose all your money overnight. What’s so clever about Las Vegas is that it makes absolutely certain that you have such a good time you don’t mind losing a bit of money along the way; that’s why they don’t even call it “gambling” any more, but “gaming”.

B.Egypt:

The old Nile brought about the civilization of Egypt; people there regard it as “the mother river” of them. On both sides of the Nile stand noble pyramids which were built as the bombs of the ancient pharaohs. And the constructions are beyond people’s imagination. Along with the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, the Great Sphinx is one of the greatest and most studied monuments of human history.

C.Parisian street:

Few cities leave the visitors with such vivid impressions. The whole city is something of a work of art. The quiet River Seine, the Eiffel Tower, Palais du Louvre and so on are really feast to your eyes. And annual film festival is held with a refreshing emphasis on art. Few cities can compete with the thousands of cafes, bars and restaurants that line every Parisian street. And along the street you will be fascinated by the beautiful window shows of various clothes.

D.Kitzbuhel:

Kitzbuhel is a paradise for all the skiers. With fine weather and breath-taking scenery, it is a world-class ski resort. Every winter, thousands of people come from all parts of the world to challenge themselves. If you can’t ski, don’t worry. The town offers many shops, café and a variety of entertainment.

E.Jerusalem:

As the cultural center and biggest center and biggest city in the region, Jerusalem is regarded as a holy place by Jews, Muslims and Christians. For Jews, it is where their ancestors built the first and second temples. Muslims knew it was the place where the Prophet Mohammed passed up to heaven. For Christians the city was the scene of Jesus’ life. However, since the war broke out, people there have suffered a lot, the situation has been tense, and peace is just a dream.

F.Mauritius

Mauritius is an island lying off the southeast Africa in the Indian Ocean, which is rich in history, natural beauty and culture. The pleasant climate and scenery provides the perfect setting to enjoy everything. The sea is full of colorful life that lives around the coral reef. This makes Mauritius a wonderful place for swimming and diving. The larger number of interesting fish means it is also an exciting place for those who like to go fishing.

 

 

  A popular saying goes, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” However, that’s not really true. Words have the power to build us up or tear us down. It doesn’t matter if the words come from someone’s else or ourselves --- the positive and negative effects are just as lasting.

  We all talk to ourselves sometimes. We’re usually too embarrassed to admit it, though. In fact, we really shouldn’t be because more and more experts believe talking to ourselves out loud is a healthy habit.

  This “self-talk” helps us motivate ourselves, remember things, solve problems, and calm ourselves down. Be aware, though, that as much as 77% of self-talk tends to be negative. So in order to stay positive, we should only speak words of encouragement to ourselves. We should also be quick to give ourselves a pat on the back. The next time you finish a project, do well in a test, or finally clean your room, join me in saying “Good job!”

  Often, words come out of our mouths without us thinking about the effect they will have. But we should be aware that our words cause certain responses in others. For example, when returning an item to a store, we might use warm, friendly language during the exchange. And the clear will probably respond in a similar manner. Or harsh(刻薄的)and critical language will most likely cause the clerk to be defensive.

  Words possess power because of their lasting effect. Many of us regret something we once said. And we remember unkind words said to us! Before speaking, we should always ask ourselves: Is it loving? Is it needed? If what we want to say doesn’t pass this test, then it’s better left unsaid.

  Words possess power: both positive and negative. Those around us receive encouragement when we speak positively. We can offer hope, build self-esteem(自尊)and motivate others to do their best. Negative words destroy all those things. Will we use our words to hurt or to heal? The choice is ours.

1.The main idea of the first paragraph is that ________.

A. not sticks and stones but words will hurt us    

B. inspiring words give us confidence

C. negative words may let us down          

D. words have a lasting effect on us

2.There is no sense for us to feel embarrassed when we talk to ourselves because _______

A. almost everybody has the habit of talking to themselves

B. we can benefit from talking to ourselves

C. talking to ourselves always gives us courage

D. it does no harm to have “self-talk” when we are alone

3.The underlined part in the third paragraph means that we should also timely _______

A. praise ourselves                        

B. remind ourselves

C. make ourselves relaxed                  

D. give ourselves amusement

4.The author would probably hold the view that ___________

A. encouraging words are sure to lead to kind offers

B. negative words may stimulate us to make more progress

C. people tend to remember friendly words

D. it is better to think twice before talking to others

 

 

   Jan. 7, 2008 --- French President Nicolas Sarkozy would marry his girlfriend, former supermodel Carla Bruni on Feb. 8 or 9, media reported Monday.

  The report said that in December --- less than a month after Sarkozy met Bruni --- he gave her a heart-shaped diamond engagement ring.

  Carla Bruni, Italian singer, former model and girlfriend of France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy, holds the hand of her son Aurelien while wearing a pink heart-shaped ring during a visit to the ancient Jordanian ruins of Petra Jan. 5, 2008. French newspapers reported that Sarkozy would marry her early in February.

  Sarkozy and his wife of 11 years, Cecilia, divorced in October. Their marital(婚姻)problems became well known in May 2005 when she appeared in public at the side of event organizer Richard Attias.

  A marriage to Bruni, a one-time star of the catwalks who is now a singer, would be Sarkozy’s third: He divorced his first wife, Marie, in the late 80s --- after he had met and befriended Cecilia.

  Political analyst Dominique Moisi said that a Sarkozy proposal to Bruni could be part of his desire to head off any future arguments, and the speed of their visit to the ancient Jordanian ruins of Petra Jan. 5, 2008 would fit with his personality as a busy man in a hurry.

  “Apparently, he’s going to marry her, so the problem will be behind him,” Moisi said. “He will increase the opportunities to travel with her, and to say to the French, ‘You see, I must remarry… You need a first lady.’”

  Bruni, an Italian-born French citizen, has dated famous men including Mick Jagger and Donald Trump. She has also reportedly been linked to singer Eric Clapton and actor Vincent Perez.

1.What is the correct order of Sarkozy’s marital history?

A. Long marriage to Cecilia                

B. Visiting ruins with Bruni

C. Getting divorced from Marie             

D. Giving Bruni a diamond ring

E. To marry the former supermodel

A. c-a-b-d-e        B. e-d-c-a-b        C. c-a-d-b-e        D. a-c-d-b-e

2.What did Moisi really intend to inform the readers?

A. The president will spend more time staying with Bruni

B. Sarkozy is good at balancing state and personal affairs

C. It is not easy for President Sarkozy to seek a new love

D. It is a doubt whether the marriage would have a bright future

3.The possible purpose of the last paragraph is to _________

A. provide some unknown stories about Bruni’s love affairs

B. show uncertainty about the former supermodel’s loyalty

C. imply that past experiences have little effect on a person

4.Which would be the best title for the news?

A. Bruni, France’s first lady             

B. A third marriage to fail

C. France to have first lady               

D. President’s new girl friend
