There was a time when Whitney didn’t have a lot of friends. She was a bit shy and reserved.  31  All through high school, though, she wasn’t able to make good friends or find companionship.
When it was time to go to college, Whitney was quite nervous. She was going to be rooming with someone she didn’t know and living in a town 300 miles away from home. There wouldn’t be a single person she knew in town.  32
The first week of classes, something happened that changed Whitney’s life forever. 33  She told everyone where she came from and all of the other ordinary details that students share in such situations. The final question for each student to answer was, “what is your goal for this class?” Most of the students said that they would like to get a good grade, pass the class or something similar.  34  She said that her goal was to make just one good friend.
While most of the students sat in silence, one student came to Whitney and held out her hand and introduced herself. She asked if they could be friends. The whole room was silent. All eyes focused on Whitney and the hand extended just in front of her.  35
Whitney learned the power of asking for what she wanted and taking action on that day.


For some reason, Whitney said something entirely different.


Whitney smiled and stretched her hand out and a friendship was formed.


She had no idea how she was going to make friends in this new environment.


In her English Composition class, she was asked to share a little about herself.


She never really wanted to be popular, but she did want to have someone to share secrets and laughs with.

 34  她說她的目標只是要交到一個好朋友。
當大多數學生安靜坐著時候,有一位學生向Whitney走過來、伸出她的手並介紹她自己。她說她們是否可以成為朋友。整個教室內是一片安靜。所以的眼睛都集中在Whitney和伸在她前面的那隻手。  35


基於某些原因Whitney 說了一些完全不同的事情。

April 22, 2010 will be the 18th celebration of the annual Take Our Daughters to Work Day (TOD), a project the National Ms. Foundation for Women of America (NFW) developed to expose girls to expanding opportunities for women in the workplace.
The program offers millions of girls a first-hand view of the many career opportunities available in their futures. Now that women make up 46 percent of the U.S. workforce, girls can find role models in every occupational field—from politics to molecular biology to professional athletics, to name just a few. TOD encourages girls to focus on their abilities and opportunities, not just their appearance.
The NFW developed the project more than a decade ago to address the self-esteem problems that many girls experience when they enter adolescence. At school, boys often receive more encouragement in the classroom, especially in math, science and computer science, the academic fields that tend to lead to the highest salaries. Women receive on average only 73 cents for every dollar that men are paid, and remain vastly underrepresented in top executive positions and technology fields. TOD aims to give girls the confidence and inspiration they need to develop successful careers, particularly in non-traditional fields.
Perhaps because the program had become so widespread and successful, TOD had been criticized for excluding boys, and it was expanded in 2003 to include boys. The program’s official website states that the program was changed in order to provide both boys and girls with opportunities to explore careers at an age when they are more flexible in terms of gender stereotyped roles. “We should also show boys that becoming a child care provider is as acceptable a choice as becoming a police officer or CEO,” added Sara K. Gould, executive director of the NFW.


The purpose for having a Take Our Daughters to Work Day is ______.


(A) to encourage girls to pursue top paying jobs


(B) to let girls spend more time with their mothers


(C) to show girls possibilities for work and careers


(D) to give girls a chance to visit their mothers’ offices


TOD was criticized because some people ______.


(A) thought it was not fair to boys


(B) did not like having children at work


(C) did not have daughters to take to work


(D) would rather have their daughters stay at home

第40 至43 題為題組
In all cultures and throughout history hair has had a special significance. In ancient Egypt, as long ago as 1500 BC, the outward appearance expressed the person’s status, role in society and political position. Wigs played an important role in this: they were crafted with great artistry and often sprinkled with powdered gold.
In the 8th century BC, the pre-Roman Celts in Northern Europe wore their hair long. In a man it was the expression of his strength, in a woman of her fertility. The idea of long hair as a symbol of male strength is even mentioned in the Bible, in the story of Samson and Delilah. Samson was a leader of the Israelites. His long hair, which he never cut, gave him superhuman powers. The only person who knew his secret was Delilah. However, she spied for the enemy and betrayed him. One night she cut off his hair and thus robbed him of his strength.
In the classical Greek period, curly hair was not only the fashion, but it also represented an attitude towards life. Curls or locks were the metaphor for change, freedom and the joy of living. The ancient Greek word for curls and locks is related to intriguing and tempting someone.
Hair is also used as a symbol of opposition. The punk protest movement today uses hair as a symbol of disapproval of the “middle-class, conventional lifestyle” by wearing provocative haircuts and shockingly colored hair. A different form of objection could be seen in the women’s hairstyles in the 1960s. Women’s liberation was expressed in a short-cut, straight and simple hairstyle which underlined equality with men without neglecting female attributes. To this day hair has kept its importance as a symbol of power, youth, vitality and health.


The topic of this passage could best be described as _____ .


(A) the scientific study of hairstyles



(B) the symbolic meanings of hairstyles


(C) the art of designing different hairstyles


(D) the contemporary development of hairstyles



41. Why did ancient Greeks like to wear curls and locks?


(A) To attract others.

(B) To show off their artistry.


(C) To hide their real identity.

(D) To represent power and status.


How did women in the 1960s use hair to show objection?


(A) They grew long hair.

(B) They dyed their hair.


(C) They cut their hair short.

(D) They shaved their heads.


43. What can be inferred from the passage?


(A) Long curly hair has always been popular since ancient times.


(B) Ancient Egyptians did not pay much attention to their hairstyles.

  (C) The punk movement is one of the most successful movements in history.

Samson might never have been defeated if he had kept the secret to himself.

頭髮也當作是反對的象徵。現今龐客族的抗議運動是用頭髮剪成怪誕的髮型和染成聳動的顏色,當作是對“中產階級傳統式生活方式”不贊同的象徵。在1960年代,一種不同形式的反對,在婦女髮型上也可以被看到。婦女的解放表現在短、直、簡單的髮型,這種髮型 - 沒有減損女性的特質 - 強調了和男人的平等。直到今日,頭髮繼續保持它當作是權力、年青、活力和健康象徵的重要性。


對於這篇文章的主題可能的最佳描述為 _____ 。

  (A) 髮型的科學性研究

(B) 髮型的象徵意義

  (C) 設計不同髮型的藝術

(D) 當代髮型的演變




  (A) 去吸引別人

(B) 表現他們的藝術氣息

  (C) 去隱藏他們的真實身份

(D) 去表示權力和地位




  (A) 她們留長髮。

(B) 她們染她們的頭髮。

  (C) 她們剪短她們的頭髮。

(D) 她們剃光她們的頭髮。





(A) 自古希臘以來,長捲髮一直流行到現在。


(B) 古埃及人不太注重他們的髮型。


(C) 龐客族運動是歷史中最成功的運動之一。


(D) 如果他自己保守了秘密,Samson可能永遠不會被擊敗。


第44 至47 題為題組
Camille Mahlknecht, 9, has some big fun planned for this weekend. She and other residents of Agoura Hills, California, plan to pick up trash during their city’s annual cleanup. At the same time, Wissam Raed, 12, will be busy volunteering too. Thousands of miles away in Lebanon, Wissam plans to put on a play at an orphanage and bring potted plants to elderly people at a senior citizen center.
Some other children like Nathan White, 10, have personal reasons for volunteering. Nathan’s grandmother died of a heart attack. To help raise money for medical research, Nathan participated in Jump Rope for Heart. He and five other boys took turns jumping rope for two and half hours and collected more than US$1,200 in donations for the American Heart Association.
Millions of children around the globe lend a hand to their communities every year. Schools and parents also contribute to the rise in youth service. For example, many schools offer community service activities for students to join. Teachers either combine volunteer work with classroom lessons or make service work a requirement. Parents, on the other hand, encourage their kids to volunteer and do it with them.
Community service is particularly important in this recession time. As the need for monetary support and other aid has increased, many charitable organizations have experienced a significant drop in donations. Camille and other children who volunteer thousands of hours annually can fill in some of the gaps.
According to research, kids who start volunteering are twice as likely to continue doing good deeds when they are adults. So, grab a paintbrush, a trash bag, or whatever you need to help your community. You’ll love how you feel after helping others. Even dirty work can be lots of fun, if it’s for a good cause.


What’s the writer’s purpose of writing this passage?


(A) To recommend youth service programs to schools.


(B) To ask charity organizations to serve the community.


(C) To urge children to take part in volunteering activities.


(D) To propose alternatives for doing community services.


What is the main idea of the 3rd paragraph?


(A) Community service is gaining popularity among children.


(B) Families and schools help to make community service popular.


(C) Children now depend more on their teachers than on their parents.


(D) Nathan White had a special reason to raise money for medical research.

第48 至51 題為題組

    Downloading music over the Internet is pretty common among high school and college students. However, when students download and share copyrighted music without permission, they are violating the law.
A survey of young people’s music ownership has found that teenagers and college students have an average of more than 800 illegally copied songs each on their digital music players. Half of those surveyed share all the music on their hard drive, enabling others to copy hundreds of songs at any one time. Some students were found to have randomly linked their personal blogs to music sites, so as to allow free trial listening of copyrighted songs for blog visitors, or adopted some of the songs as the background music for their blogs. Such practices may be easy and free, but there are consequences.
Sandra Dowd, a student of Central Michigan University, was fined US$7,500 for downloading 501 files from LimeWire, a peer-to-peer file sharing program. Sandra claimed that she was unaware that her downloads were illegal until she was contacted by authorities. Similarly, Mike Lewinski paid US$4,000 to settle a lawsuit against him for copyright violation. Mike expressed shock and couldn’t believe that this was happening to him. “I just wanted to save some money and I always thought the threat was just a scare tactic.” “You know, everyone does it,” added Mike.
The RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), the organization that files lawsuits against illegal downloaders, states that suing students was by no means their first choice. Unfortunately, without the threat of consequences, students are just not changing their behavior. Education alone is not enough to stop the extraordinary growth of the illegal downloading practice.


Why is it common for students to download copyrighted music?


(A) They don’t think that they will be caught.


(B) They want their friends to know that they are smart.


(C) They think it is a good way to make some extra money.


(D) They are against copyright protection over Internet music.


What does Mike mean by saying that “the threat was just a scare tactic”?


(A) One should not be afraid of threats.


(B) A lawsuit will result from the threat.


(C) It is unfair to scare people with a threat.


(D) No serious consequence will follow the threat.


What is RIAA’s attitude towards students’ illegal downloading behavior?


(A) They believe that education will help greatly in protecting copyrights.


(B) They profit from the fines illegal downloaders pay for copyright violations.


They like to sue students for downloading music illegally from the Internet.



They think that illegal downloading behavior needs tough measures to correct.


What’s the best title for this passage?


(A) Copyright Violators, Beware!


(B) How to Get Free Music Online!



A Survey of Students’ Downloading Habits

一項對年輕人音樂所有權的調查發現,青少年和大學生,在他們的數位音樂播放器裡,每個人平均有超過800首非法複製歌曲。有一半接受調查的人是將全部的音樂放在他們的硬碟裡,這使得其他人可以一次就複製到好幾百首歌曲。有一些學生是被發現在個人部落格隨便連結音樂網站 - 這樣就可以讓部落格訪客免費試聽有版權的歌曲 - 或是利用一些歌曲當作部落格的背景音樂。這樣的作法也許方便又免費,但會有後果。
Sandra Dowd,一位Central Michigan University的學生,在一個點對點的檔案分享程式LimeWire,下載了501個檔案因而被罰款7,500美金。Sandra聲稱,她是一直到被有關當局通知,她才知道她的下載是非法的。相似地,Mike Lewinski付了4000美金去擺平一件違反版權的官司。 Mike表示驚訝和他無法相信這件事會發生在他身上。“我只是想省些錢,一直以為這種警告威脅只是一個嚇唬人的策略。”Mike 又說“你知道,大家都這麼做的。”

If I could live without worrying about budget for one day, I would share this special day with my family because I have a very close bond with them. We have always been there for each other and shared everything together.

      With my family, I would like to travel to every country in the world; however, the possibility of that in one day is impossible. Therefore, I would like to go to a five-star exotic beach resort overseas. On the beach, we could build sand castles, lie under the sun, go swimming, diving and water skiing. Furthermore, we could dine, dance, get a massage, and laugh in the resort. Experiencing these activities and spending quality time together would be a wonderful way to spend this day.

If I could live without worrying about budget for one day, I would share this special day with my family....
