     Happy,angry,amazed—these are some of the emotions we like to express these days when we're sending a message on our smartphones.That's a quick way of telling someone how we're feeling.Yes,emojis have become a vital tool for communication.
     The emoji was first invented in Japan in the late 1990s and the word "emoji" comes from the Japanese words for "picture" and "character".The number of different images has dramatically increased since then and now we have a picture for every mood or situation.
     So now we are giving chis new creation the visual "thumbs-up" but have you thought why we've become so addicted to using emojis?Professor Vyv Evans has written a book called The Emoji Code,saying "increasingly,what we're finding is that digital communication is taking over certain aspects of face-to-face interaction...one of the reasons why emojis are so popular is that they really do enable us to express our emotional selves more effectively."Another advantage of emojis is that they are an international language—they don't use words but some pictures so they can be easily interpreted whatever your native language is.However,the emojis can sometimes be misinterpreted—if a friend sends you an emoji of a hammer,you may think he/she is angry when really he/she is saying he/she is clumsy!
     Emojis are a good way for showing similar feelings.But as linguist(语言学家)Neil Cohn says,"To many,emojis are an exciting evolution of the way we communicate,but to others,they are a linguistic Armageddon(大决战)."It does show there is a lot more to our communication than words alone but does this mean the decline in traditional writing?
1.How do emojis help people in communication?
A.They can interpret the foreign languages.
B.They will take the place of face-to-face interaction.
C.People can express their emotions effectively with emoijs.
D.People can express themselves clearly with emojis at any time.
2.Which of the following words can replace the underlined "thumbs-up"in Paragraph 3?
A.doubt
B.Praise
C.ignorance
D.attention
3.What do you probably mean by sending your friend an emoji of B hammer?
A.You are awkward.
B.You need a hammer.
C.He/She loses his/her temper.
D.He/She should apologize to you.
4.What is Neil Cohn's opinion on emojis?
A.They are not used by linguists.
B.They will take over the traditional writing.
C.They will become an international language.
D.They bring convenience and challenges to language.

     In my bag I always carry the same essential items: my keys, my purse, some loose change, my mobile phone and my little blue vocabulary notebook. This year I am living abroad in Germany and I am trying to learn as much German as possible. I always knew that living abroad would be a great way to learn a foreign language but one thing I didn’t realize was how many new words and phrases I would come across every day! I see and hear new words everywhere; the announcements in the train station; menus in cafes; on social media; on the local newspaper and of course from my German-speaking friends.
     At first I was slightly upset by the large amounts of German I didn’t understand. Speaking German in Germany is definitely very different from that in the classroom; I kept on looking up new words and by the end of the day I had forgotten most of them already. It was very frustrating. After a month of worrying that I would never be able to improve my language skills, I went to the stationery shop and bought a small notebook which easily fit into my handbag or even into my back pocket! I set myself the goal of writing five new words or phrases a day into my little blue book and soon enough it became one of my most valuable language-learning tools.
     I don’t have any rules about which words I write down. Most days I write down words that I learn from my colleagues at work, words that I don’t understand in reading or words that I have learned from seeing them in context. For example, I have learned the names of many fruits and vegetables from looking at their labels in the supermarket (a very unexpected source of vocabulary!) and I have learned many words that I have heard on TV or on the radio. It doesn’t even matter if I know how to spell a new word straight away. If I hear a word but I don’t know how to spell it, I write down how I think it sounds and look it up later.
     My little blue vocabulary book is now like my close friend. We go everywhere together. Setting this small daily goal has made me feel much more in control of my language teaming and I am already seeing an improvement. I will continue to use it for the rest of my stay in Germany and also when I return to university at home in September.
1.What can we conclude from the first paragraph?
A.New words are all around you in a foreign country.
B.Walking in the street is a good way to learn a language.
C.Life is really hard for anyone to live in a foreign country.
D.The author is skilled in learning a second language.
2.What was the author’s response when facing difficulty?
A.He felt helpless and hopeless.
B.He was terrified.
C.He didn’t lake a negative attitude.
D.He set a high goal for himself.
3.What words will the author put down in the notebook?
A.The words that his teacher explained in classes.
B.He has no rules about which words to write down.
C.He asked his friends to tell new words and phrases.
D.The words he noticed in the shop or supermarkets.
4.What does the underlined word “it” in Paragraph 2 refer to?
A.Learning German.
B.My experience.
C.The handbag.
D.My notebook.

     NEW DELHI—In India’s space center on the barrier island of Sriharikota, the white-jacketed scientists held their breaths.
     The country’s trusty red-and-white satellite launch vehicle had lifted off moments before and blasted into orbit.
     The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle C-37 was about to perform a delicate maneuver(操纵,任务)—carefully sending 104 satellites into the heavens, the highest number ever attempted in one mission. One Indian space analyst on television likened the complicated maneuver to dropping children at different bus stops.
     About 10 a.m. Wednesday, the announcement came: All the satellites had been successfully launched. The scientists breathed a collective sigh of relief, and backslapping and applause followed.
     “This is a great moment for each and every one of us. Today we have made history,” project manager B. Jayakumar said afterward. The total number of satellites far outstripped(超过) the previous record—37 at the same time sent into space by Russia in 2014.
     Wednesday’s launch was another success for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), which is rapidly gaining a reputation globally for its effective yet low-cost missions.India had already sent up dozens of satellites, including 20 in one launch last year.
     In 2014, India became the first Asian nation to send a probe(探测器) into orbit around Mars, a $74 million effort that, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi noted at the time, cost less than what it took to make the Hollywood space movie “Gravity”.
     The fierce national pride that resulted after that success sent the Mars probe rocketing onto the face of the country’s new 2,000 rupee($30) currency note (钞票) in November.
     “Now India is showing its competitiveness in the $300 billion global space market,” said Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan, head of the Nuclear and Space Policy Initiative at the Observer Rearch Foundation in New Delhi.
1.What does the underlined word “likened” mean in the 3rd paragraph?
A.Contributed
B.Compared
C.Preferred
D.tied
2.What does India’s Prime Minister Modi imply according to the 8th paragraph?
A.The 104-satellite maneuver cost less money than the film “Gravity” did.
B.Shooting a film is always more expensive than launching a rocket.
C.The Mars probe rocketing is characteristic of being low in cost.
D.All real explorations are cheaper than virtual ones.
3.The way India adopted to show the significance of the Mars probe rocketing is equal to the way Chinese government use ________ in China.
A.Chairman Mao Zedong’s portrait
B.a picture of the Long-march rocket
C.a picture of the Three-gorges(峡谷) project
D.President Xi Jinping’s portrait
4.It can be inferred that after the success in the 104-satellite launch, India will ________.
A.become No. 1 in the global space market
B.take up a larger market share in the future
C.show its ability among local competitors
D.have an order of $300 billion

     My mother believed you could be anything you wanted to be in America. America was where all my mother’s hopes lay. She had come here in 1949 after losing everything in China. But she never looked back with regret. There were so many ways for things to get better.
     “Of course you can be a prodigy, too,” my mother told me when I was nine. “You can be best at anything.” We didn’t immediately pick the right kind of prodigy. At first my mother thought I could be a Chinese Shirley Temple. We’d watch Shirley’s old movies on TV as though they were training films. My mother would poke my arm and say, “Ni kan” — You watch. And I would see Shirley tapping her feet, or singing a sailor song, or pursing her lips into a very round O while saying, “Oh my goodness.”
     Soon after my mother got this idea about Shirley Temple, she took me to a beauty training school and put me in the hands of a student who could barely hold the scissors without shaking. Instead of getting big fat curls, I emerged with an uneven mass of crinkly black fuzz. My mother dragged me off to the bathroom and tried to wet down my hair.
     “You look like Negro Chinese,” she lamented, as if I had done this on purpose.In fact, in the beginning, I was just as excited as my mother, maybe even more so. I pictured this prodigy part of me as many different images, trying each one on for size. I was a dainty ballerina girl standing by the curtains, waiting to hear the right music that would send me floating on my tiptoes. I was Cinderella stepping from her pumpkin carriage with sparkly cartoon music filling the air.
     In all of my imaginings, I was filled with a sense that I would soon become perfect. My mother and father would adore me. I would be beyond reproach. I would never feel the need to sulk for anything.
     But sometimes the prodigy in me became impatient. “If you don’t hurry up and get me out of here, I’m disappearing for good,” it warned. “And then you’ll always be nothing.”Every night after dinner, my mother and I would sit at the Formica kitchen table. She would present new tests, taking her examples from stories of amazing children she had read and a dozen other magazines she kept in a pile in our bathroom. My mother got these magazines from people whose houses she cleaned. She would look through them all, searching for stories about remarkable children.
     The first night she brought out a story about a three-year-old boy who knew the capitals of all the states and even most of the European countries. A teacher was quoted as saying the little boy could also pronounce the names of the foreign cities correctly.
     “What’s the capital of Finland?” my mother asked me, looking at the magazine story.
     All I knew was the capital of California, because Sacramento was the name of the street we lived on in Chinatown. “Nairobi!” I guessed, saying the most foreign word I could think of. She checked to see if that was possibly one way to pronounce “Helsinki” before showing me the answer.
     The tests got harder—multiplying numbers in my head, finding the queen of hearts in a deck of cards, trying to stand on my head without using my hands, predicting the daily temperatures in Los Angeles, New York, and London.
     And after seeing my mother’s disappointed face once again, something inside of me began to die. I hated the tests, the raised hopes and failed expectations. Before going to bed that night, I looked in the mirror and when I saw only my face staring back—and that it would always be this ordinary face—I began to cry. Such a sad, ugly girl! I made high pitched noises like a crazed animal, trying to scratch out the face in the mirror.
     And then I saw what seemed to be the prodigy side of me—because I had never seen that face before. I looked at my reflection, blinking so I could see more clearly. The girl staring back at me was angry, powerful. This girl and I were the same. I had new thoughts, willful thoughts, or rather thoughts filled with lots of won’ts. I won’t let her change me, I promised myself. I won’t be what I’m not.
1.The underlined word “prodigy” in Paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to ________.
A.talent
B.Professor
C.leader
D.superstar
2.Why did the mother and the girl watch Shirley’s old movies on TV?
A.Because the mother was a fan of Shirley Temple.
B.Because Shirley Temple’s hairstyle was very popular among children.
C.Because the girl resembled Shirley Temple in appearance.
D.Because the mother wanted her daughter to be a Chinese Shirley Temple.
3.How did the girl feel about the tests she did every night?
A.She felt confident and finished it smoothly.
B.She got through the tests painfully.
C.She failed the tests and began to lose confidence.
D.She eventually sadly found herself ordinary and ugly.

     How to make Quick Decisions For Your Life
     We make decisions every day.①.When it comes to making decisions, choosing the right one can at times be stressful, especially if the decision must be made quickly. Indecision often weighs us down, but there are some useful tips for making quick decisions more easily.
     ②.Sometimes the key to making a quick decision comes down to planning ahead of time for just such an occasion. We all know we’re going to come to an important decision-making point sooner or later, so having a plan already in hand can put our mind at ease when that time comes.
     Overcome fear.③.While it may seem difficult to overcome the fear of making the wrong choice, many experts agree that we shouldn’t be afraid to make the wrong decision, even if it seems important. The vast majority of wrong decisions can be corrected, while delaying decisions can often lead to more problems.
     Write down all the advantages and disadvantages of your decision. Even if you don’t have all the information, writing down all the pros and cons(优缺点) is a good starting point for figuring out what to do. In cases where there simply isn’t enough time to write things down, make a mental list in your mind. Thinking of the pros and cons can help you organize your thoughts. ④.
     Determine criteria. Remember that every decision you make should come with a certain list of criteria.⑤.But once you know the requirements you’re looking for, making a decision will become easier. Look for the choice that satisfies the list you’ve made, and once that choice is found, you should move ahead with it.
A. Have a plan.
B. The list may be short or quite long.
C. Communicate your decision with others.
D. And this can always lead to a clear answer.
E. So cut out any options that you know you will not choose.
F. Often, one thing that keeps us from making decisions is fear.
G. Some can be very important while others are not serious in the long run.
