Part Three

Passage A

Four men who would become fathers were in a hospital waiting room while their wives were in labor (分娩). The nurse arrived and proudly said to the first man, "Congratulations, sir. You're the father of twins!"

Passage B

I was sleeping soundly last night when I was awakened by someone's groans(呻吟).I listened,and heard it was from Sam,a student from Africa.

Passage C

From the time we were babies we have been taught manners. We are taught how to hold a knife and fork and not to talk with our mouths full. We are taught how to shake hands and when to stand and when to sit and the way to introduce people.

Sometimes good manners in one place are very bad manners somewhere else. Almost everywhere eating together means that people are very friendly to each other. But in parts of Polynesia(波利尼西亚)it is bad manners to be seen eating beside each other. So they politely turn their backs to each other when they are taking food.

Some East Africans spit four times as a kind of blessing(祝福).They do it to show that

they want a sick person to get well,or to bless a new-born baby. In most other places,spitting means something completely different. It usually shows an unhealthy habit. In many

countries,it may mean that you hate someone.

When we go to visit someone we say"Hello!"Or"How are you?" or things like that.

But if you are visiting an East African village,everyone will be very careful not to pay attention to you, The polite thing there will be for you to go quietly,without speaking to anyone, and sit beside your friend. You should wait until he has finished what he is doing and then he will begin talking to you.

In a village in Arab,a visitor will walk behind all the tents until he gets to the one he wants to visit. If he passes in front,he will be invited into each tent and asked to eat. It is rude to refuse.

Part Four 总结






3.历年的中考真题拿来仔细研究, 研究近几年全国各省市中考英语试题,我们发现"阅读理解"题呈现出这样几个特点:①题材新颖,原汁原味,趣味性强;②贴近生活实际,极具可读性;③反映社会热点,富于时代气息;④题目设计巧妙,匠心独运;⑤考查能力综合化;⑥选材广泛,信息量大。所涉及内容包罗万象,不仅涉及生活百科,自然科学,而且也触及天文地理,异域风情等。



最后我送给大家一个典故,一个天使angel曾经问过上帝这样一个问题,你们要听好:"when did Noah build the Ark? 这句话的中文意思就是:"诺亚什么时候建的方舟?"上帝听了转头微微一笑回答说:"Before the rain." 在雨前建的。这句话蕴涵了很深的道理对不对?你们现在初三,中考对于你们越来越近。我打个比方,大家现在好比站在平原上面快乐地跳舞、快乐地奔跑、快乐地嬉戏。。。。但是你有没有想到在一年之后,有一场暴雨肯定要来临,席卷每个人,所有人都不能幸免。当洪水漫过你的口鼻,抑制住你的呼吸时,你就会想我的方舟在哪里?到那时你只能潸然泪下,带着遗憾变成一具死尸了。所以同学们趁着现在我们还在平原上,阳光还灿烂,让我们拿起笔,作为我们的斧头,砍下属于我们的第一根树枝,从这第一根树枝起构建我们自己的方舟。希望大家在中考时都能拥有自己的方舟。
