Just now, I entered the website ―Topic for Today‖, I feel (interest) in the report on middle school students’ using cell-phones on campus．In fact, many students now come to school cell-phones．My schoolmates have different opinions．Some think is convenient to get in touch with others with the cell-phone, which also makes you feel safe especially in time of trouble． , it is nice to enjoy various functions of different cell-phones．think differently．First, the cell-phone is not must in school, as are some IC phones in the school (make) it easy to call others．Second, many students often play e-games and send e-messages with their cell-phones, even in class, will surely have bad effects on their study．What’s more, it will result in a great waste of time and money．In my
opinion, the cell-phone is a (use) tool in our daily life．But it doesn’t mean we can use it freely in school． Ⅲ、阅读 (共两节,满分40分)
It may help you to know that there is no such thing as a perfect speech．At some point in every speech, every speaker says something that is not understood exactly as he has planned．Fortunately, the moments are usually not obvious to the listeners．Why? Because the listeners do not know what the speaker plans to say．They hear only what the speaker does say．If When such moments occur, don’t worry about them, Just continue as if nothing happened． Even if you do make an obvious mistake during a speech, that don’t really matter ．If you have ever listen to Martin Luther King’s famous speech – ― I have a dream‖, you may notice that he stumbles（结巴） his words twice during the speech．Most likely, however, you don’t remember．Why? Because you were fixing your attention on his message rather than on his way of speech-making．People care a lot about making mistakes in a speech because they regard speech-making as a kind of performance rather than as an act of communication．They feel the listeners are like judges in an ice-skating competition．But, in fact, the listeners are not looking for a perfect performer．They are looking for a well-thought-out speech that express the speaker’s ideas clearly and directly．Sometimes a mistake or two can actually increase a speakers’ attractiveness by making him more human．
As you work on your speech, don’t worry about being imperfect．Once you free your mind of this, you will find it much easier to give your speech freely．
41．The underlined part in the first paragraph means that no one will ___________． A．be smarter than you C．do better than you

42．You don’t remember obvious mistakes in a speech because ___________． A．your attention is on the content B．you don’t fully understand the speech C．you don’t know what the speaker plans to say D．you find the way of speech-making more important 43．It can be inferred from the passage that ___________． A．giving a speech is like giving a performance B．one to two mistakes in a speech may not be bad
C．the listeners should pay more attention to how a speech is made D．the more mistakes a speaker makes, the more attractive he will be 44．What would be the best title of the passage? A．How to Be a Perfect Speaker B．How to Make a Perfect Speech C．Don’t Expect a Perfect Speech
D．Don’t Expect Mistakes in a Speech 45．Which of the following statements is true?

When it comes to friends, I desire those who will share my happiness, who possess wings of their own and who will fly with me．I seek friends whose qualities illuminate（照亮）me and train me up for love．It is for these people that I reserve the glowing hours．
When I was in the eighth grade, I had a friend．We were shy and ―too serious‖ about our studies when it was becoming fashionable with our classmates to learn acceptable social behaviors．We said little at school, but she would come to my house and we would sit down with pencils and paper, and one of us would say:―Let’s start with a train whistle today．‖ We would sit quietly together and write separate poems or stories that grew out of a train whistle．Then we would read them aloud．At the end of that school year, we, too, were changing into social creatures and the stories and poems stopped． ．He was in despair and I was in despair．But our friendship was based on the idea in each of us that we would be sorry later if we did not explore this great city because we had felt bad at that time．We met every Sunday for five weeks and found many excellent things．We walked until our despairs disappeared and then we parted．We gave London to each other．
．We write long letters in which we often discover our strangest selves．Each of us appears, sometimes in a funny way, in the other’s dreams．She and I agree that, at certain times, we seem to be parts of the same mind．In my most interesting moments, I often think:―Yes, I must tell…．‖, though we have never met．
It is such comforting companions I wish to keep．One bright hour with their kindness is worth more to me than the lifetime services of a psychologist（心理学家），who will only fill up the healing silence necessary to those darkest moments in which I would rather be my own best friend．
