Italy’s 5 most amazing ancient Roman sites
The Romans helped to shape the world, and their legacy lives on in arts and culture throughout Italy. For a truly en joyable holiday, don’t miss these unique ancient treasures.
A city threaded with historic treasures, Italy’s capital is a live spot recalling Roman life. The Colosseum (古罗马竞技场) is a wonderful landmark; As the world’s largest theatre, the 70000 capaci ty venue impresses with sheer size. Nearby, the Roman Forum reminds you of the center to the Empire: remains of temples, political buildings and even an ancient water system have survived.
Pompeii, struck by the eruption of the Mount Vesuvius, is an archaeological victory. Theatres, baths, villas and temples make up the complex flattened by ash and stones in 79 AD, leaving behind a snapshot of the past.
Rome’s ancient port city is a freeze frame of early AD life. Originally founded to defend the mouth of the River Tiber, it later became a trading post for grain, oil and wine. As the river changed course, river mud choked the settlement.
◆Hadrian’s Villa, Tivoli
A showy display of power and wealth, Emperor Hadrian’s 2nd century AD villa (别墅) is a flashy five-star pad. Stone baths made use of hot springs can be seen and a pool with splendid statues showing imperial conquests(帝国
征服） was a favourite place for summer baths.
Romans loved to watch a bloody battle. Capua’s th eatre has a larger Roman cousin, the Colosseum. Underground, the galleries, and tunnels are in much better condition, making it easy to imagine the days when the slaves fought from this site.
21. Which site will make a visitor interested if he is keen on archaeology?

When my best friend and I were teenagers, our favourite place to hang out was the Hallmark store. If we had the money, we would choose the perfect card for each other and then share tears or smiles depending on what emotion the words motivated. In those years we developed a friendship built on sincere feelings and we often found comfort in the words of a Hallmark card. I think it is perhaps because of those years that I have become a greeting card collector.
The other day, while cleaning out the storage in our home, I came across the bag in which I have kept greeting cards. They were the lasting messages that spoke the meanings of my life. I pulled out a card to look. It had a stick figure on the front that seemed to be drawn in my picture. I giggled (咯咯地笑) as I realized this was exactly how my oldest daughter saw her mum. Opening it up I saw a hand drawn heart with eyes and a big smile. On the other side were some words “You are the best mum in the world!” This may be one card that Hallmark can’t compete with, for it is a treasure more precious than gold. I can’t go back to where I’ve been but, from time to time, I can be taken into a welcomed memory trip.
These are the Hallmark moments of our lives. Words from once upon a time inspire us to appreciate the people in our lives who mean so much. When we sometimes have doubts, or when the world deals us unfair blows, the encouraging words are there in black and white, sometimes drawn as in a homemade stick figure with a heart shaped smiley face standing out from the rest of the pile.
Life is a Hallmark card when you care enough to send the very best.
24. What influence does the Hallmark card have on the author?
A. Finding her real hobby.

D. Sharing the experience of life with friends.
25. The author uses “a welcomed memory trip” in Paragraph 2 to show that ____.
A. she rarely remembers her past

D. drawing herself on the cards is very meaningful
26. Why does the author think the words on the cards mean a lot?
A. Because they make her filled with thankfulness.
B. Because they are written in different colors.
C. Because they can help her overcome doubts.
D. Because they always give her opportunities.
27. Which of the following can be the best title of the passage?
A. Words on the Cards
B. Life Is a Hallmark Card
C. Collecting Greeting Cards
D. Memory in the Childhood
Almost none of us have the time to read everything we’d like to read. Yet we lose countless hours to daily activities that bring us little joy like taking buses and waiting in line. What if we could turn these little blocks of unoccupied time into precious and rewarding moments for learning and thinking?
Established in 2020, iReader, a micro-learning app on mobile phones, brings the biggest ideas from best-selling books through 15-minute audio (音频) and text. So far, more than 3,000 books have been included, ranging from psychology and parenting to management and economics, with new titles added every day.

Making beers on the moon might seem like a pipe dream to many, but for a group of students from the University of California at San Diego, there is a chance to take their research beyond Earth’s surface.The Lab2Moon competition, held by TeamIndus, is offering students the chance to secure a spot on the TeamIndus rocket this year.
Taking craft beer to the next level, the students want to test whether it’s possible for yeast(酵母) to work and create beer on the moon. However, they believe the experiment is not just a creative concept for astronauts, it’s also important for the development of drugs and yeast-containing food, like bread.
“T he idea started out with great excitement among a group of friends,” said Neeki Ashari, a fifth-year bioengineering students at UC San Diego. “We all appreciate the craft beer. When we heard that there was an opportunity to design an experiment that would go up on India’s moonlander, we thought we could combine our hobby with the competition by focusing on the practicality of yeast in outer space.”
The preparation work for the beer — up to the stage of adding yeast —will all be done on Earth, and rather than separating the fermentation (发酵) and carbonation stage of making beer, the team plans to combine them.
This removes the need to release CO2 accumulated in the process, which may result in cleanliness and safety issues out in space.
If selected, Team Original Gravity will be the first to make beer in outer space, and the fermentation will take place in a container no bigger than a soda can.
All teams competing for the place will showcase their ideas in Bangalore, India, in March.
Sadly, you won’t be enjoy ing moon beer in your local craft beer bar
anytime soon, as no samples will be brought back. However, this small experiment could provide important data on just how practical it is for us to make and create our own resources on other planets and moons by learning how consumables (消耗品) behave in different environments.
32.How did the students feel when they got the chance to design the experiment ?
33. What does the underlined word “This” in Pa ragraph 6 refer to?
A. The preparation work on Earth.
B. Adding yeast on Earth.
C. The mixing of two stages.
D. Fermentation and carbonation.
34. What can we learn about the experiment from the passage?
A. Its process was adapted to make it safer and greener.
B. It’s quite competitive compared with other designs.
C. Its design has already been approved by TeamIndus.
D. It has been designed based on similar experiments.
35. What does the author think of the students’ idea?
A. It seems like a pipe dream.
B. It’s meaningful and h elpful.
C. It’s extremely complicated.
D. It’s creative but impractical.
The past is good for two things: the happy memories, and the lessons it provides. Take some time to think and create two lists: One, your Top Five Most Important Lessons Learned in the Year. And two, your Top Five Favorite Memories of the Year. ___36___
Take some time to think
___37___ But you just invested 8760 or so hours of your life in the previous year. To pull what is worth pulling from it, to give it proper perspective and proper closure, it surely deserves some of your focused conscious energy.
Maybe you lost half your investments this year. Or your job. Or your house. Or you faced health challenges. You may dwell（细想） on the negative, self-defeating questions like “How could I be so stupid?” or “How could God let this happen to me?” But a child doesn’t touch fire, get burned, and then spend the rest of his days – or even hours – thinking bitterly how this could have happened to him. He learns not to touch the fire and twenty minutes later he is happily playing again. ___39___
Don’t bang on the beehive（蜂窝）
When discussing the past year I have already heard so many people stating how bad it was. I hear them recalling all the bad memories. It is like banging on a beehive. Because here is a universal law: whatever you seek, you will find plenty of. ___40___ Likewise, if you are focused on good memories, the beauty in the world, and things to feel grateful for, they will nourish your mind, your heart, and allow your life to blossom.
A. Learn from the past experiences.
B. First and foremost, bear in mind that the key aspect of this experience is to“take some time to think”.
C. No matter how much you have invested, sometimes the healthiest thing you can do is let go.
D. In today’s go-go faster-faster world, you may be attracted to rush through this experience, to treat it like another task to get off your to-do list.
E. Remember the wisdom of a child.
F. If you are focused on bad memories, problems, and things to complain about, they will drown your mind and your heart, and sting your life.
G. Now before you race off to do this, read the rest that provides important perspective on doing this.
My father was born in a small town in the US. He wasn’t sure what he wanted from ____41___, but something told him to get out and begin a(n) ___42___. He took his wife and three daughters with him and went wherever the road took him.

When we were traveling in the Philippines, we drove to Quezon City one day. It should have been a one-hour drive but was nearly three, ____51____bad roads and worse traffic. “Did you put our ___52___in the car?” my father asked my mother as we arrived. “No,” she said, slowly
turning toward my father. “I thought you did.” That was ____53____a
seven-hour car trip turned into a 16-hour car trip, which was mostly
On occasions like that, we had to learn to___55___our anger because we
were stuck (困在) in a rolling box with the same people for the ____56____of
the journey. Even if I sometimes felt like opening the car door and
____57_____one of my sisters out, I kept my feelings to myself.
This is why road trips were like ____58____universities to us. We earned
our____59____ in how to get on just by traveling in that old car.
And if we were ____60____given a second chance at life, we would do it
all over again. Only this time, I myself would put the suitcases in the car.

Ted, a British boy, along with his parents were invited to visit a Chinese calligraphy exhibition in London on last Saturday. They were exciting to have such a good chance to have a close look at the traditional Chinese culture. On the show they enjoyed various fine work with great admiration. To their joy, they saw some Chinese artists giving live performances with brush pens.
Ted couldn’t resist approach an elderly Chinese artist, which was writing attentively with a big brush pen. Ted watched with great interest but asked the artist to show her how to use the brush pen. The artist agreed and gave him some instruction patient. Then Ted couldn’t wait to have a try. He admit he was deeply attracted by the Chinese calligraphy.

Here is some good news for you. Our school is to launch an activity called Retrace the Silk Road during the summer vacation. I'm writing to invite you to attend it.
In order to preserve and promote our traditional Chinese culture, our school is to organize some students to travel along the Silk Road from July 6 to July 16 under the guidance of some experienced local guides. Anyone who is interested is welcome to join. You can sign up in our school office or on the Internet by May 28. I know that you adore Chinese culture, so I think it is an opportunity that can't be missed. I believe you will have fun and benefit a lot from this activity.
Looking forward to your participation.
