When I was studying English at a training center in Washington D.C. in 1998, I shared a house with two young Americans, Jim and Steve. Jim was studying French and Steve Chinese, both at the Foreign Service Institute. We shared many things in common, but we also thought and acted quite differently. Steve was interested in speaking Chinese. He always tried every opportunity to talk with me with his very Englishlike pronunciation. I was often touched by his diligence. However, I wanted to practice English with him, too. So we often spoke at the same time in the other’s mother tongue. Jim was fresh from college and the youngest of the three. He was going out all the time. The only time we met was at breakfast. There was a small round table in our kitchen, where we sat around to enjoy our food. Steve had Chinese fast food such as dumplings or noodles, and I ate bread and boiled eggs. But Jim often just drank a cup of tea because he had nothing in his fridge. He was too busy dating pretty French girls to do any shopping. I often offered him some of my food. But Steve told me in his poor Chinese that I didn’t need to do that. He said that it was Jim’s own fault and that it served him right. Although he was learning Chinese, he still held his American sense of values.
Two years later, I returned to China. The three of us still keep in touch, Jim now works in a travel agency in Paris. He got married to one of the pretty girls. He wrote to tell us that he can now enjoy a delicious breakfast with his beautiful wife every morning in their comfortable living room. Steve wants to work in China. And I’m helping him with this. I have introduced him to the dean of the Oversea Section of our university. He is very interested in Steve. He wants to know if Steve can work here teaching the oversea students Chinese. I have sent the message to Steve. I’m sure he’d be very happy to accept the job. However, I hope he could try harder to improve himself.

How often one hears children wishing they were grown up, and old people wishing they were young again. Each age has its pleasures and its pains, and the happiest person is the one who enjoys what each age gives him without wasting his time in useless regrets.
Childhood is a time when there are few responsibilities. If a child has good parents, he is well fed, looked after and loved. It is unlikely that he will ever again in his life be given so much without having to do anything in return. In addition, life is always presenting new things to the childthings that have lost their interest for older people because they are too well known. A child finds pleasure in playing in the rain, or in the snow. His first visit to the seaside is a marvelous adventure. But a child has his pains: he is not so free to do as what he wishes to do; he is continually being told what to do and what not to do. Therefore, a child is not happy as he wishes to be.
When the young man starts to earn his own living, he becomes free from the discipline of school and parents; but at the same time he is forced to accept responsibilities. With no one to pay for his food, his clothes, or his room, he has to work if he wants to live comfortably. If he spends most of his time playing about in the way that he used to as a child, he will go hungry. And if he breaks the laws of society as he used to break the laws of his parents, he may get himself into trouble. If, however, he works hard, goes by the law and has good health, he may feel satisfied in seeing himself make steady progress in his job and in building up for himself his own position in society.
Old age has always been thought of as the worst age to be, but it is not necessary for the old to be unhappy. With old age comes wisdom and the ability to help others with advice wisely given. The old can have the joy of seeing their children making progress in life, they can watch their grandchildren growing up around them; and, perhaps best of all, they can, if their life has been a useful one, feel the happiness of having come through the battle of life safely and of having reached a time when they can lie back and rest, leaving everything to others.
66. The happiest people should be those who .
A. face up to difficulties in lifeB. hope to be young again
C. enjoy life in different agesD. wish to grown up
67. The word “they ” underlined in Line 4, Para. 2 refers to .

A. live comfortablyB. take responsibilities
C. make progress in job D. impress the society
70. The best title of the passage might be .

C. The Best Age to BeD. Happiness and Ages
Life really should be one long journey of joy for children who are born with a world of wealth at their tiny feet. But experts on psychological research now believe that silver spoons can leave a bitter taste. If suicide statistics are a sign of happiness, then the rich are a miserable lot. Figures show that it is the rich who most often do away with themselves.
Dr. Robert Coles, an internationally famous doctor, is the world’s top expert on the influence of money on children. He has written a wellreceived book on the subject, The Privileged Ones, and his research shows that too much money in the family can cause as many problems as too little. “Obviously there are certain advantages to being rich,” says the 53yearold doctor, “such as better health, education and future work expectation, but most important is the quality of family life. Money can’t buy love.”
It can buy a lot of other things, though, and that’s where the trouble starts. Rich kids have so much to choose from that they often become confused. Their parents’ over favoring can make them spoiled. They tend to travel more than other children, from home to home and country to country, which often makes them feel restless.
“But privileged children do have a better sense of their positions in the world,” adds Mr. Coles, “and they are more selfassured.”
Today’s rich parents perhaps have realized that their riches can be more of a burden than a favor to their children. So their priority is to ensure that their families are as rich in love as they are in money.
71. According to the passage ,children of rich families .
A. enjoy travelingB. can buy love

A. It is love that is always lacking in rich and poor families alike.
B. Silver spoons can sometimes leave a bitter taste.
C. Money can’t buy everything.
D. Rich children are often confused because they have so much to choose from.
74. The expression “silver spoons” in Paragraph 1 means .
A. very expensive spoonsB. rich people
C. wealthD. spoons made of silver
75. This article is written mainly to tell readers that .
A. the rich are more likely to do away with themselves
B. money can bring a lot of things, including love
C. life is always happy for children of rich parents
D. rich parents should realize what is important in the family is love rather than money
Charlene, 16yearold student at a high school, found herself faced with a maths test to which she knew none of the answers. Rather than fail, she took the test out with her and filled in the answers with the help of her friends. During a break, she got back into the classroom without being seen, crumpled(揉皱) the test with her shoe, and left it lying on the floor. The teacher thought it had been dropped when the tests were collected; she corrected it, and Charlene received a B.
Cheating is, of course, nothing new. But today, educators are finding that cheating on the part of students has become more frequent than in the past. Whether it is copying a friend’s homework, using a prepared sheet on an exam, stealing advance copies of a final, writing down rules in one’s hand, or paying someone else to write a term paper, cheating appears to have gained acceptance among a growing number of students between 13 and 19.
In a 1978 study of cheating at twentytwo high schools in Georgia, it was found that cheating was common among good and poor students alike—although both boys and girls said they thought boys cheated more.
Why is student on the rise? No one really knows. Some blame cheating on a general loss of good values among today’s youth. They point to facts showing increased damage of public things and school stealing and think that reports, such as Watergate(水门事件), have disappointed youth about the honesty of people in higher position.
Others think that today’s youth are far more practical than their forefathers(先辈). In the late sixties and early seventies, students were filled with imaginations about changing the world, but today’s students feel great stress to succeed.

A. her friends could answer none of the problems
B. she tore the test paper to pieces

D. she did not want to fail in the maths test
77. Charlene passed the test because .
A. she answered all the questions by herself
B. she did the test by cheating
C. she persuaded her teacher to give her a B
D. she returned to the classroom to redo the test
78. Which of the following is not an example to show that cheating is becoming more and more common?
A. A student pays another for doing a test paper.
B. A student writes down something to be tested before an exam.
C. A student gets well prepared in his studies before an exam.
D. A student gets homework from his classmate and then copies it.

A. only students in the 24 high schools cheated in examinations
