A One of Britain’s leading fee-paying schools, Wellington College, is to offer classes on happiness to fight against the bad influences in society caused by materialism (功利主义) and celebrity obsession (名誉崇拜), its head teacher announced. Wellington school was founded in 1853 and now has 750 boys aged 13 to 18 and 50 girls aged 16 plus. Fees range from 6,132 pounds per term for day pupils to 7,665 pounds per term for boarders (寄宿生). “We are introducing classes on happiness,” said Anthony Seldon, master of Wellington College. “We have

第1页

been focusing too much on academics (学术) and missing something far more important.” A psychologist (心理学家) will be in charge of a pilot project teaching “happiness lessons” from the start of

the next academic year. Pupils aged 14 to 16 will be given one lesson a week, learning skills such as how to

manage relationships, physical and mental health, negative emotions and how to achieve one’s goals. The college’s religious education staff (成员) will teach the course as a complement (辅助) to, rather than a
substitute (替代) for, usual religious education classes, said Seldon, who is also a political critic and writer.

“To me, the most important job of any school is to turn out young men and women who are happy and secure (可靠的).” explained Seldon. “Celebrity, money and possessions are too often the touchstones for teenagers and

yet these are not where happiness lies. Our children need to know that as societies become richer, they don’t

become happier — a fact regularly shown by social science research.”

36. Wellington school is to offer students classes on happiness because ______.

A. students want to learn more about materialism and celebrity obsession

B. students have poor knowledge about materialism and celebrity obsession

C. students are often unhappy about the courses taught at school

D. the school wants to smooth away the bad effects caused by materialism and celebrity obsession

37. Which of the following is true according to the text?

A. Wellington College has been focusing much attention on happiness lessons.

B. Science research shows that the richer people are, the happier they will become.

C. British teenagers often judge things by celebrity, money and possessions.

D. Happiness lessons will take the place of religious education classes in college.

38. In happiness lessons, students learn the following except ______.

A. how to get along with others

B. how to become rich and famous

C. how to get rid of negative emotion

D. how to keep healthy both in physical and mental ways

B

“I’m seventy years old,” says the gray-haired lady proudly to the entertainer (演艺人员) at her Community

Club dinner.

“Did you hear that, everyone?” says the entertainer. “This lovely lady is just seventy years young! And she

doesn’t look a day over fifty.”

He has been careful not to use the word “old”. In a society where youth is so admired, old age is often seen

as something sad, something to fight against. Americans prefer not to say “old” people. They use the expression

“senior citizens”. They do not talk about “old people’s” homes, but “retirement” homes.

In fact, the entertainer is not so wrong. Seventy is not very old these days. People in the US are living longer

and longer. In1980, 12 percent of Americans were over sixty-five years old. By 2030, 21 percent will be over

sixty-five. One reason for this is that families are getting smaller. The average couple now has only 1.8 children.

At the same time, improved medical care means that people are living longer.

This change in the age of Americans is going to have serious results. For one thing, medical costs are rising.

The government is unable to pay the elderly people’s medical bills that have gone up very much. Some old people

have to leave hospital “sicker and quicker” than they should, before they are really better.

More fortunate senior citizens, though, who still have good health, want new laws to be passed to allow them

to stay at work. In the past, the retirement age was sixty-five, but that is changing now. Older people are stronger

and more energetic than ever before. Many of them refuse to stop working just because they have reached a

certain age.

There is a change, too, in the way in which elderly people see themselves. Many are no longer happy to accept the gray hair, bald ( 秃 的 ) heads, and boring clothes of their own parents. They like to wear

younger-looking clothes and bright makeup. American women spend millions of dollars a year on operations to lift their faces and make those ugly wrinkles (皱纹) disappear. Men are prepared to spend even more on

operations to plant new hair on their bald spots. It’s worth any money to look younger.

39. In America people try to avoid using the word “old” because ______.

A. the old age is seen as something that isn’t admired

B. it is now believed to bring bad luck to elderly people C. the standard (标准) of getting old has changed

D. the change in the age has caused a health problem

40. According to the passage, which of the following does NOT describe the American society correctly?

A. People live longer because of improved medical care.

B. The government finds it difficult to afford the medical bills of the elderly.

C. People use polite expressions when talking about old age.

D. The old patients’ time in hospital is strictly limited.

41. This passage is most probably taken from ______.

A. a travel booklet

B. a magazine

C. an advertisement

D. a medical report

C

After an absence of thirty years, I decided to visit my old school again. I had expected to find changes, but

not a completely different building. As I walked up the school drive, I wondered for a moment if I had come to the

right address. The dirty red brick houses had been swept away. In its place stood a bright, modern block. A huge expanse of glass extended (延展) across the face of the building, and in front, there was a well-kept lawn (草坪) where previously there had been “an untidy gravel (沙石) yard”.

I was pleased to find that it was bread time and that the children were all in the playground. This would

enable me to meet some members of staff. On entering the building, I was surprised to hear loud laughter coming

from what appeared to be the masters’ common room. I could not help remembering the teachers in my time, all dressed in black gowns (长袍) and high collars (领子). And above all, I recalled Mr Garston whom we had

nicknamed “Mr Ghastly”, the headmaster who had iron discipline on staff and pupils alike. I knocked at the

common room door and was welcomed by a smiling young man who introduced himself to me as the headmaster. He was dressed casually in a sports jacket, and his cheerful manner, quickly dispelled (驱散) the image of Mr

Ghastly. After I had explained who I was, the headmaster presented me to the teachers all of whom were a little

younger than himself, and said he would take me round the school.

Here the biggest surprise of all was in store for me. Gone were the heavy desks of old with their deeply

carved names; gone too, were the dark classrooms with their ink stained, dark brown walls, and their raised

platforms for the teachers. The rooms now were painted in bright colors, and the children, far from sitting straight

in their places, seemed almost free to do as they liked. I looked with envy as I remembered how, as a child, I had

looked at the blackboard hardly daring to whisper to my neighbor.

42. The writer ______.

A. had no difficulty in recognizing his old school

B. found it difficult to recognize his old school

C. noticed that the building was still unfinished

D. was surprised to see an untidy gravel yard

43. Which of the following statements is NOT true?

A. He had expected that the school had completely changed.

B. In the writer’s time, all the teachers were dressed in black gowns and high collars.

C. There was a well-kept lawn in their school when he visited it.

D. An untidy gravel yard had disappeared.

44. “Mr Ghastly” must be ______.

A. the writer’s teacher B. a serious old man

C. the strict headmaster D. a naughty boy

45. From what is said in the passage it seems clear the writer ______.

A. disapproved of all the changes that had taken place B. felt sorry for the children in the school

C. was glad that the school was still the same

D. felt that conditions at the school had improved a lot
