For centuries, the only form of written correspondence (通信)was the letters were, and are, sent by some form of postal service, the history of which goes back a long way. Indeed, the Egyptians began sending letters from about 2000 BC, as did the Chinese a thousand years later.
Of course, modern postal services now are much more developed and faster, depending as they do on cars and planes fore delivery. Yet they are still too slow for some people to send urgent documents (紧急文件)and letters.
The invention of the fax (传真) machine increased the speed of delivering documents even more. When you send a fax you are sending a copy of a piece of correspondence to someone by telephone service. It was not until the early 1980s that such a service was developed enough for businesses to be able to fax documents to each other.
The fax service is still very much in use when copies of documents require to be sent, but, as a way of fast correspondence, it has been largely taken the place of by email. Email is used to describe messages sent form one computer user to another.
There are advantages and disadvantages with emails. If you send some one an email, then he will receive it extremely quickly. Normal postal services are rather slow as far as speed of delivery is concerned.
However, if you write something by email, which you might later regret, and send it immediately, there is no chance for second thoughts. at least, if you are have to address and seal(封)the envelope and take it to the post box.. There is plenty of time to change your mind. The message is think before you email!

If you’re like most students, you probably read both at home and outside your home: perhaps somewhere on your schoolyard and maybe even at work during your breaks. Your reading environment can have a great effect on your understanding, so give some thought to how you can create(营造)or choose the right reading environments. The right environment allows you to stay alert(专注的) and to keep all of your attention on the text, especially when it is both interesting and difficult.
When you’re at home, you can usually create effective conditions for reading. You might want to choose a particular place—a desk or table, for example—where you always read. Make sure the place you choose is well lighted, and sit in a chair that requires you to sit straight. Reading in a chair that’s too soft and comfortable is likely to make you sleepy! Keep your active reading tools (pens, markers, notebooks or paper) and a dictionary close at hand.
Before you sit down for a reading period, try to reduce all possible interruptions. Turn off your phone, the television, and the radio. Tell your family members or roommates that you’ll be busy for a while. If necessary, put a “Do not disturb” sign on your door! The more interruptions you must deal with while you read, the harder it will be to keep your attention on the task at hand.
49. The author believes that the right reading environment_________.
A. helps readers a little in their reading tasks
B. helps readers a lot in their readers a lot in their reading tasks
C. can only be created at one’s home
D. can only be created outside one’s home
50. Which type of the following interruptions is mentioned in the text?
A. Dictionaries. B. Paper. C. Phone calls. D. Notebooks.
51. What would be the best title for the text?
A. How to read fast
B. Creating an Effective Reading Environment
C. The Ways to Reduce Possible Interruptions
D. What to Read
In many countries the standard of living enjoyed by their people has increased rapidly in recent years. Sadly, not everyone in these countries is so fortunate and many people in rich countries are homeless.
The reasons for homelessness are various, but poverty（贫穷）is undoubtedly one of the main causes. The homeless people may have become jobless and then been unable to pay their rent and so no longer have a roof over their heads. Often, the fact that unemployed people get help from the government prevents this from happening, but not always.
Some homeless people are mentally ill and have no one to look after them. Some are young people who, for one reason or another, have left home and have nowhere to live. Many of them have had a serious disagreement with their parents and have left home, choosing to go to a city and live on the streets. Sometimes they have taken such action because they have been unable to get on with a step-parent.
Many homeless people get into the habit of begging to get enough money to stay alive, but many of the general public refuse to give anything to beggars. Often they are moved on by the police, being accused （指控），whether rightly or wrongly, of forceful begging. There are many who disrespect homeless people.
Some cynics（愤世嫉俗的人）declare that homeless people choose to live the life which they lead. But who would willingly choose to live in z shop doorway, under a bridge or in a cardboard box?
52. According to the text, what causes some people to be homeless?
A. Lack of money. B. The increased standard of living.
C. No government help. D. Agreement with their parents.
53. It can be inferred from the text that________.
A. the homeless are willing to live under a bridge or in a cardboard box
B. you will not find homeless people in countries with a high standard of living
C. the mentally ill live on the stress because they want the company of other homeless people
D. the unemployed who receive help may still be among the homeless
54. In paragraph 2, “a roof over their needs” most probably means _________.
A. a cap B. a car C. a home D. a covering
Among rich countries, people in the United States work the longest hours. They work much longer than in Europe. This difference is quite surprising because productivity per hour worked is the same in the United States as it is in France, Spain and Germany, and it is growing at a similar speed.
In most countries and at most times in history, as people have become richer they have chosen to work less. In other words they have decided to “spend” a part of their extra income on a fuller personal life. Over the last fifty years Europeans have continued this pattern, and hours of work have fallen sharply. But not in the United States. We do not fully know why this is. One reason may be more satisfying work, or less satisfying personal lives.
Longer hours do of course increase the GDP (国内生产总值). So the United States has produced more per worker than, say, France. The United States also has more of its people at work, while in France many more mothers and older workers have decided to stay at home. The overall result is that American GDP per head is 40% higher than in France, even though productivity per hour worked is the same.
It is not clear which of the two situations is better. As we have seen, work has to be compared with other values like family life, which often get lost in interest. It is too early to explain the different trends（趋势）in happiness over time in different countries. But it is a disappointing idea that in the United States happiness has made no progress since 1975, while it has risen in Europe. Could this have anything to do with trends in the work-life balance (平衡)?
56. From the text we know that the author_______.
A. believes that longer working hours is better
B. prefers shorter working hours to longer ones
C. says nothing certain about which pattern is better
D. thinks neither of the patterns is good
57. Which of the following countries has more of its people at work?
A. Spain. B. France. C. Germany. D. America.
58. In the last paragraph, the underlined word “which” refers to_______.
A. family life B. situations C. other values D. trends
59. What message can we get from the text?
A. The GDP of Europe is higher than that of America.
B. Two possible reasons are given for working longer hours in the US.
C. People all over the world choose to work less when they are richer.
D. Americans are happier than Europeans.
60. Which of the following would be the best title for the text?
A. Americans and Europeans B. Staying at Home
C. Work and Productivity D. Work and Happiness

One Possible Version
The summer holiday is corning. Our class have had a discussion about what to do during the holiday. Some are in favor of staying at home. They think it's both convenient and comfortable. What's more, they can save money for other purposes. But they will lose the chance of getting to know the outside world. However, others prefer to go out for traveling since it can increase their knowledge and broaden their horizons. But they will spend more money and meet some difficulties while traveling.
In my opinion, it would be much better to stay at home, for I can do what I like, such as reading books, watching TV, and helping my parents with the housework
