When he was young, Louis Armstrong was taking what was called Creole jazz, which was also called dance music, and combining it with trumpeter (小号手) Buddy Bolden, to create what would eventually become today's jazz.
Armstrong accomplished this with almost no formal training. What little training he did have began when he was placed in the New Orleans Colored Waif's Home at the age of 12, after a run-in with the police. The punishment tuned out to be a mixed blessing, for he also had the opportunity to play in a real band.
While at the Waif’s Home, Armstrong also got the chance to hear some of the city’s finest musicians. Cornetist Freddie Keppard performed in a nearby club. So did trumpeter and bandleader King Joe Oliver, who took the boy under his wing and taught him how to read music and work on his playing technique.
When Oliver left for Chicago, Armstrong chose to stay in New Orleans and work with some of the other top musicians of the day. Some years later in Chicago, King Oliver offered him a place in his band in 1922. It became Armstrong’s biggest challenge yet --- the band had no parts written for trumpet, so he was forced to listen to King Oliver and improvise ( 即兴创作 ).
Soon, Armstrong’s undeniable talent was getting notice.
Lil Hardin, the band’s piano player and the future Mrs. Armstrong, explains that Oliver kept Armstrong in the second trumpet-chair so that Oliver would still be “King”. Hardin convinced him to leave the band.
Armstrong recorded his first composition, Cornet Chop Suey, one of the most copied jazz solos of all time. This monumental 1928 recording mixes artistry, endurance and showmanship that has rarely, if ever, been matched in jazz.
24、What does the underlined word “run-in” mean in the second paragraph?
A、campaign             B、tension             C、exploration          D、conflict
25、 Who played a fundamental part in Armstrong’s achievements in music?
A、Buddy Bolden.                          B、Lil Hardin. 
C、King Joe Oliver                         D、Cornetist Freddie Keppard.
26、 Why did Louis Armstrong leave King Oliver’ s band?
A、Because he wanted to get married in New York.
B、Because his talent could not develop completely.
C、Because he got a better opportunity in New York.
D、Because the man forced him to leave the band.
27、What's the main idea of the passage?
A、It asks readers to know more about modern jazz.
B、It introduces one of the greatest jazz musicians.
C、It introduces the development of jazz.
D、It describes the importance of talent in playing jazz.
C
You may think that sailing is a difficult sport, but it is really not hard to learn it. You do not need to be strong. But you need to be quick. And you need to understand a few basic rules about the wind.
First, you must ask yourself, “Where is the wind coming from? Is it coming from ahead or behind or from the side?” You must think about this all the time on the boat. The wind direction tells you what to do with the sail.
Let’s start with the wind blowing from the behind. This means the wind and the boat are going in the same direction. Then you must always keep the sail outside the boat. It should be at a 90° angle to the boat. Then it will catch the wind best.
If the wind is blowing from the side, it is blowing across the boat. In this case, you must keep the sail half way outside the boat.  It should be at a 45° angle to the boat. It needs to be out far enough to catch the wind, but it shouldn’t flap (摆动). It shouldn’t look like on a flagpole. If it is flapping, it is probably out too far, and the boat will slow down.
Sailing into the wind is not possible. If you try, the sail will flap and the boat will stop. You may want to go in that direction. It is possible, but you can’t go in a straight line. You must go first in one direction and then in another. This is called tacking. When you are tacking, you must always keep the sail inside the boat.
28、What should you do when you are learning to sail ?
A、Tell wind directions.                           B、Know wave levels. 
C、Consider the size of sails                    D、Know the position of your boat
29、What does the word “It” underlined in Paragraph 4 refer to?
        A、The boat.          B、The wind.            C、The angle.          D、The sail.
30、According to the passage, which of the following is right?
A、Keep the sail inside when sailing with the wind blowing from the behind.
B、Allow the sail to flap when sailing with the wind blowing from the side.
        C、Tack the boat when trying to sail against the wind.
D、 Move in a straight line when sailing against the wind.
31、Where can you probably find the text?
A、 In a physics textbook.                    B、In a tourist guidebook.
C、 In an official report.                         D、In an entertainment magazine.
D
Have you ever looked at a fashionable item of clothing and felt confused? If so, your confusion may have made sense.
Several months ago, high fashion brand Balenciaga released a "T-shirt shirt”, which is a shirt sewn on the front of a T-shirt. The unusual design has certainly confused a lot of people.
But the “double shirt” isn’t fighting alone on the frontier of strange fashion. Ever since US shoe manufacturer Crocs released its famous hole-filled foam shoes, so-called “ ugly fashion” hasn’t showed any signs of slowing down, the Business of Fashion Website noted.
   
 
 
 
 
 

British designer Paul Surridge believes that the rise of ugly fashion is a sign that people are bored of looking perfect all the time. “(Fashion) thrives on novelty”, he told the Financial Times.
Indeed, fashion is all about changes. Something that’s considered uncool one minute can then turn out to be the latest must-have fashion item the next.
And in the eyes of US fashion writer Megan Collins, ugly doesn’t necessarily mean the design of the item is ugly. After all, ugly is something subjective. “Ugly fashion means ‘not the mainstream’---- it’s not what everyone’s wearing; it’s not what the general population considers as ‘in’ right now,” she told style news site Fashionista.
But throughout the history of fashion, when any new trend appears, most people tend to hate it, before it eventually becomes loved. As Italian designer Miuccia Prada told The New York Times, “ Maybe because it is newer, ugly is attractive. Ugly is exciting.”
Meanwhile, popular social media fashion bloggers also help people to pick up new ugly fashion trends. These bloggers express themselves through their clothes, showing their unique personalities and making statements with their wardrobe choices. However, as Clever-ish Magazine noted, just being comfortable in your own skin could actually be "the best look”.
“I personally love having a unique expression, because without ugly fashion and diversity, we'd all look the same,” Australian fashion influencer and model Zanita Whittington told Fahionista, “ I appreciate anything that’s out of the norm.”
32、How does the author lead to the topic of the passage?
A、By telling a funny story.   
B、By asking and answering questions
C、By asking questions and giving examples
D、By giving different remarks from different people.
33.、What can we know from the writer Megan Collins?
A、Ugly fashion has a standard criterion    B、Ugly fashion varies from person to person
C、Most people like ugly fashion               D、Ugly fashion can be easily predicted
34、What will some social media fashion bloggers do to show their personalities?
A、They will dress themselves to look perfect.
B、They will try some new and exciting clothes.
C、They will make statements with others’ clothes choices.
D、They will express themselves by wearing ugly clothes.
35、Which may be the best title?
A、Ugly fashion --- accept it or hate it        B、Ugly fashion --- defend it or ban it
C、Ugly fashion means a public trend        D、Ugly fashion means a sign for perfection

Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.    36     Sleeping at 4 am and waking up at noon was a part of me. But after reading a subject on waking up early, I‘ve found that people waking up earlier are more productive and live happier.     37      I used to be a night owl, but now become the most productive person I've ever been. Would you like to become a morning person yourself ?  Here are my tips.
      38       If you always wake up at 10 to 11 am., it isn’t too realistic to expect that you will immediately wake up at 5 am the next day. But you can try 9:45 first and, slowly build it up to your desired time. The gradual method might work much better for sleeping patterns are difficult to change. That goes for eating or exercise habits as well. Just make a change from advancing your waking time with 15 minutes each day.       39__               
Then sleep earlier. You can’t just wake up early and not sleep early. Staying up late and getting up early will eventually break you down. So if you’re setting your alarm 15 minutes earlier than usual, make sure to sleep 15 minutes sooner as well.
            40      To wake up early, you need to have a strong motivation first. Once there's a forceful reason to do something the next morning, you will jump out of bed however sleepy you might be. For example, an extremely important and  urgent task will wake you up early.
       Maybe, almost all attempts to wake up early will fail, but please don’t give up. So keep trying, and you’ll be a morning person.    
A、Have a compulsory reason.
B、I’ d never been a morning person.
C、Be possessed of strong determination.
D、In this way, your goal will be reached in time.
E、So I’ve started experimenting and received good results.
F、In order to make a change, you need to make arrangements beforehand.
G、The best method for changing your waking-up time is to do it gradually.

W: Hmm… then how about Fiji?
M: I don’t like long flights. It’s 12 hours from Beijing… What about Thailand? Six hours on the plane to Phuket isn’t that bad. And I always love Thai food.
W: That would be a great place! Since we have so much time, maybe we can take a day trip to the Similan Islands. I’ve been wanting to visit that national park. The pictures look wonderful!

M: Can you believe the school year is almost here?
W: I know. Every time I walk by our new school, I get a little anxious.
M: Why? Everything is going to be so much better.
W: Really? I heard it is a lot of extra work…
M: Relax. We’ll get used to it. Apparently there is a huge computer room we can study in. Also, they have just finished building a new running track and put in artificial grass.
W: Cool. We’ll have lots of fun on the playground.
M: You think that’s cool? There are two gyms and an indoor swimming pool! Anyway, we have to choose two arts courses this year. Any thoughts?   
W: At first I thought about dance and music, but I changed my mind. I think I’m going to try acting instead. And since I’m joining the school newspaper, I’ll take something related to that.
M: Good for you. I’m going to improve my drawing, and learn how to play the drums. 
W: Hey, maybe if you become a famous musician, I can interview you!

M: School is finally out! Do you have any plans this summer, Kate?
W: Yes. In August I’m going on a two-week vacation to the Bahamas.
M: Awesome! How much is that going to cost you?
W: Don’t ask. I have to work every single day this month just to be able to pay for the vacation.
M: I know what you mean. I’ve been saving up to buy a truck. I want to have one for the start of my last year of college.
W: That would be nice.
M: Well, it’s too bad you won’t be around in August. There’s a famous English soccer team coming to town.
W: I heard. At least I’ll be able to see the Backstreet Boys in July. It’s my favorite band. They’re playing at the Victoria Theater.
M: I’ve been there. I saw the Jim Jefferies comedy show there once.
W: You saw that? How did you get tickets? I heard they were hard to get.
M: My friend works at the ticket office. Do you want me to see if he can get you tickets as well?
W: No need. I won mine on a radio show. I had to answer three questions about the band, and I got them all correct.
M: A true fan! You deserve to go!

When I showed up at my first job interview, it was my last year of middle school. I thought I knew everything back then. All my friends said how nervous they were for their interviews. I thought to myself, “If you look scared, it is a sign of weakness.” When I went to McDonald’s for the interview, I thought it would be a piece of cake. But my answer to every question was “I don’t know”. Not surprisingly, I didn’t get that part-time job. My parents weren’t happy at all. The following year I had a second chance at a gas station. This time I showed up in a nice shirt with a tie and answered every question politely. And you know what? I got the job. I learned how to deal with money, how to fix cars, and how to deal with people. Most importantly, I had learned a life skill. When I graduated from high school, and my friends were still working at coffee shops, I was working for a building company. I helped build the Westin Hotel and the Ocean View Apartments. It inspired me to become an engineer, and now I design and build airplanes. So how did I get to where I am? My teachers would say it sure wasn’t my study habits. In my case, I learned with my hands.
