(A) “Dreams may be more important than sleep. We all need to dream.” Some scientists say. Dreams take up about one quarter of our sleeping time. People have several dreams each night. Dreams are like short films. They are usually in color. Some dreams are like old films. They come to us over and over again. That may be because the dreamer is worrying about something. Dreaming may be a way of trying to find an answer. Some people get new ideas about their work from dreams. They may have been thinking about their work all day. These ideas can carry over into dreams. Sometimes we wake up with a good feeling from a dream. But often we can’t remember the dream. Dreams can disappear quickly from memory. Too much dreaming can be harmful. The more we sleep, the longer we dream. The mind
is hard at work when we dream. That’s why we may h ave a long sleep and still wake up tired! （ ）56. It may be more important to dream than to _______. A. think B. sleep C. work D. study （ ）57.

A. shorter B. longer C. worse D. weaker （ ）60. The main idea of the story is that______. A. what dream is B. people like to sleep C. dreams are like films D. we always remember dreams (B) Riddih Shah, 10 Students will use computers and e-textbooks. E-textbooks will be like a disk(硬 盘).

At the age of five, I had to go to kindergarten (幼儿园) and it was quite hard for me at first. I felt very sad about having to leave my mother each morning. I cried and wanted my mother around. As the days went by, however, I made friends easily in my class. I became happy again and looked forward to leaving my house each morning. I still remember those days when I was learning to ride a bicycle. I fell several times but I never gave up. Finally, I was able to join my friends riding around on my bike.

Breakfast usually comes before eight o'clock in the morning. They usually have eggs, some meat, bread, fruit juice and coffee. Lunch is between twelve and one o'clock. It is like a light meal and working people must take lunch with them or get it near a workplace. Children in school take sandwiches, fruit and cookies with them or eat in school.

The drink is coffee, tea or milk. Then comes the dessert. 听第二篇短文，回答第 16－20 小题。听两遍。 American schools begin in September after a long summer holiday. There are two terms in a school year. The first term is from September to January, and the second is from February to June. Most American children begin to go to school when they are five years old. Most students are seventeen or eighteen years old when they finish high school. High school students take only four or five subjects each term. They usually go to the same classes every day, and they have homework for every class. After class they do many interesting things. After high school, many students go to college. They can go to a small one or a large one. They usually have to give a lot of money. So many college students work after class to get the money for their studies.
