Now the world’s first publicly traded 3D bioprinting company is getting ____41____ for production. In January slices of human liver tissue were ____42____ to an outside laboratory for testing. These ____43____ take about 30 minutes to produce, says Keith Murphy, the firm’s chief executive. Later this year Organovo aims to begin commercial sales.

He also estimates that about 80 teams at research institutions around the world are now trying to print ____50____ small pieces of tissues such as skin, blood vessels, liver, lung and heart. “It’s a wonderful technology to build three-dimensional biological structures,” says Gabor Forgacs, who co-founded Organovo in 2007. III. Reading Comprehension Section A Directions: For each blank in the following passages there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context. It is officially known as The Swiss Re Tower, or 30 St Mary Axe.

Green architecture is ____52____ the way buildings are designed, built and run. Supporters of green architecture argue that the approach has many ____53____. In the case of a large office, for example, the ____54____ of green design techniques and clever technology can not only reduce energy consumption and environmental impact, but also reduce running costs, create a more ____55____ working environment, improve employee’s health and productivity, reduce legal liability, and ____56____ property values and rental returns. Going green saves money by reducing long-term energy costs: a survey of 99 green buildings in America found that on average, they use 30% less energy than conventional buildings. So any additional building costs can be ____57____ quickly. The traditional approach of trying to minimize construction costs, ____58____, can lead to higher energy bills and wasted materials. Green buildings can also have less obvious ____59____ benefits.

Despite its benefits and its growing popularity, green architecture is still not as popular as expected. The main ____64____ is co-ordination(协调), for green buildings require much more planning by architects, engineers, builders and developers than traditional buildings.

Section B Directions: Read the following passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. （A） The person who set the course of my life was a school teacher named Marjorie Hurd. When I stepped off a ship in New York Harbor in 1949, I was a nine-year-old war refugee, who had lost his mother and was coming to live with the father he did not know. My mother, Eleni Gatzoyiannis, had been imprisoned and shot for sending my sisters and me to freedom. I was thirteen years old when I entered Chandler Junior High. Shortly after I arrived, I was told to select a hobby to pursue during “club hours.” The idea of hobbies and clubs made no sense to my immigrant ears, but I decided to follow the prettiest girl in my class. She led me into the presence of Miss Hurd, the school newspaper adviser and English teacher. A tough woman with salt-and-pepper hair and determined eyes, Miss Hurd had no patience with lazy bones. She drilled us in grammar, assigned stories for us to read and discuss, and eventually taught us how to put out a newspaper. Her introduction to the literary wealth of Greece gave me a new perspective on my war-torn homeland, making me proud of my origins. Her efforts inspired me to understand the logic and structure of the English language. Owing to her inspiration, during my next twenty-five years, I became a journalist by profession. Miss Hurd retired at the age of 62. By then, she had taught for a total of 41 years. Even after her retirement, she continually made a project of unwilling students in whom she spied a spark of potential. The students were mainly from the most troubled homes, yet she alternately bullied and charmed them with her own special brand of tough love, until the spark caught fire. Miss Hurd was the one who directed my grief and pain into writing. But for Miss Hurd, I wouldn’t have become a reporter. She was the catalyst that sent me into journalism and indirectly caused all the good things that came after. 66. What does the underlined sentence in Paragraph Two most probably mean? A. Hobbies and clubs did not interest the author. B. The author turned a deaf ear to joining clubs. C. Hobbies and clubs were inaccessible to immigrants like the author. D. The author had no idea what hobbies and clubs were all about. 67. Which of the following caused the author to think of his homeland differently? A. Stepping on the American soil for the first time. B. Her mother’s miserable death. C. Being exposed to Greek literary works. D. Following the prettiest girl in his class. 68. It can be inferred from Paragraph Four that ____________. A. Miss Hurd’s contribution was recognized across the nation
B. Students from troubled homes preferred Miss Hurd’s teaching style C. The students Miss Hurd taught were all finally fired D. Miss Hurd employed a unique way to handle these students 69. The passage is mainly concerned with _____________. A. how the author became a journalist B. the importance of inspiration in one’s life C. the teacher who shaped the author’s life D. factors contributing to a successful career （B）
About PISA The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is a triennial international survey which aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students. To date, students representing more than 70 economies have participated in the assessment.
What makes PISA different PISA is unique because it develops tests which are not directly linked to the school curriculum. The tests are designed to assess to what extent students at the end of compulsory education, can apply their knowledge to real-life situations and be equipped for full participation in society. The information collected through background questionnaires also provides context which can help analysts interpret the results.
What the assessment involves Since the year 2000, every three years, fifteen-year-old students from randomly selected schools worldwide take tests in the key subjects: reading, mathematics and science, with a focus on one subject in each year of assessment. The students take a test that lasts 2 hours. The tests are a mixture of open-ended and multiple-choice questions that are organised in groups based on a passage setting out a real-life situation. A total of about 390 minutes of test items are covered. Students take different combinations of different tests.
Additional PISA initiatives PISA-based Test for Schools(PTS) As interest in PISA has grown, school and local educators have been wanting to know how their individual schools compare with students and schools in education systems worldwide. To address this need, the OECD （ The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development ） has developed the PISA-based test for schools. It is currently available in the United States and the OECD is in discussions with governments to make the test available in other countries such as England and Spain.
70. PISA is different from other programmes because _____________. A. its test is closely related to the school curriculum B. its test aims to assess whether students can solve real-life problems C. its test can equip students for full participation in school D. test scores directly determine the analysis of the test 71. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? A. Test-takers are carefully selected. B. Test-takers answer the same questions. C. Test-takers are tested on three key subjects. D. Test-takers spend about 390 minutes on the test. 72. What can we infer from the last paragraph? A. Students of all ages will be able to take PTS in the future. B. More countries are likely to have PTS in the future. C. School and local educators show little interest in PISA at present. D. PISA provides evaluation of education system within a certain country. 73. Where can we most probably find the passage? A. On the Internet. B. In a newspaper. C. In a magazine. （C） YANG YUANQING, Lenovo’s boss, hardly spoke a word of English until he was about 40: he grew up in rural poverty and read engineering at university. But when Lenovo bought IBM’s personal-computer division in 2005 he decided to immerse himself in English: he moved his family to North Carolina, hired a language tutor and — the ultimate sacrifice — spent hours watching cable-TV news.
D. In an advertisement.
Lenovo is one of a growing number of multinationals from the non-Anglophone world that have made English their official language. The fashion began in places with small populations but global ambitions such as Singapore and Switzerland. Corporate English is now invading more difficult territory, such as Japan. Rakuten, a cross between Amazon and eBay, and Fast Retailing, which operates the Uniqlo fashion chain, were among the first to switch. Now they are being joined by old-economy companies such as Honda, a carmaker, and Bridgestone, a tyremaker. Chinese firms are proving harder to handle: they have a huge internal market and are struggling to enrol competent managers of any description, let alone English-speakers. But some are following Lenovo’s lead. Huawei has introduced English as a second language and encourages ambitious employees to become fluent. There are some obvious reasons why multinational companies want a lingua franca(共通 语). Adopting English makes it easier to recruit global stars (including board members), reach global markets and assemble global production teams. Such steps are especially important to companies in Japan, where the population is shrinking. Tsedal Neeley of Harvard Business School says that “Englishnisation” can stir up a hornet’s nest of emotions. Ms Neeley argues that companies must think carefully about implementing a policy that touches on so many emotions. Senior managers should explain to employees why switching to English is so important, provide them with classes and conversation groups, and offer them incentives(刺激) to improve their fluency. Those who are already proficient in English should speak more slowly and try not to dominate conversations. And managers must act as referees and enforcers, resolving conflicts and discouraging staff from return to their native tongues. Intergovernmental bodies like the European Union are obliged to pretend that there is no predominant global tongue. But businesses worldwide are facing up to the reality that English is the language on which the sun never sets. 74. Lenovo’s boss made all the efforts to familiarize himself with English except ______. A. hiring a language tutor B. resettling in an English-speaking environment C. expanding the business overseas D. exposing himself to English Cable-TV new 75. What can we infer from the passage? A. Most Chinese firms would like to introduce corporate English. B. Chinese firms are in great need of English majors as their managers. C. Huawei followed Lenovo as the second largest multinational in China. D. Adopting corporate English is more difficult in places with a large population. 76. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. The decrease in population pushes the Japanese to learn English well. B. Neither the governmental bodies nor businesses will regard English as a global tongue. C. Companies should handle employees’ emotions carefully during the switch. D. Those good at English should be encouraged to speak more in the company.
77. Which of the following might be the best title of the passage? A. English—Global Tongue in Business B. English—Chinese Business Leaders’ New Fashion C. English—The Best Tool in Communication D. English—Dominating Factor of Successful Business Section C Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. Now many people strive to be a follower of the LOHAS movement. LOHAS means “lifestyles of health and sustainability.” This term was coined in 2000 by two American scholars. Lohasians believe in leading a healthy lifestyle that is actively involved in preserving the earth’s environment and resources. According to Lohasians, respect for one’s own mental and physical health should exist in parallel with care for the earth’s ecology. They believe their actions, in this way, can have a positive effect on our global environment, and might be able to minimize the negative effects of people’s mindless and selfish consumption. Take organic foods, for example. Lohasians prefer them, not only because they are chemical-free and good for the human body, but also because they are cultivated using natural fertilizers, which do not harm the soil. Even more Lohansians turn to locally grown produce(农产品), the transportation of which consumes far less fuel than that of imported goods. As global warming has become a universal concern, Lohasians are anxious to find ways to cut down on energy consumption. Indeed, Lohasians are always considering the long-term impact of their behavior on the planet. As more consumers are adopting LOHAS values, this growing trend has dawned on the corporate world and they begin to practice responsible capitalism, which means providing goods and services using environmentally friendly and economically sustainable business practices. For instance, Coca-Cola’s efforts in the area of sustainable packaging focus mainly on “using less” and “reusing more.” In 2006, Coca-Cola redesigned its glass bottle to extend its life cycle and reduce its impact on the environment. As a result, the company saved 89,000 metric tons of glass in 2007 alone, and, therefore, reduced carbon dioxide emissions to a level equivalent to that of the planting of more than 13,000 acres of trees. Clearly, LOHAS values have become a significant trend in the world today. Individual or corporate “cultural creatives” are promoting these values by challenging old traditi ons and habits, and building new lifestyles. Although whether these practices will bring immediate benefits to the environment and the health of people today remains unknown, Lohasians are confident that these practices will benefit their children and future generations. All individuals should evolve into Lohasians and take action to save the planet, before it is too late. (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN TWELVE WORDS.)
78. Lohasians are convinced that through their responsible actions, __________ might be reduced to a minimum. 79. Why is locally grown produce favoured by Lohansian? 80. Consumers’ growing trend of LOHAS values has inspired companies to __________. 81. In terms of their practices, Lohasians are not sure of __________. 第 II 卷（共 47 分） I.

录音文字 I. Listening Comprehension Section A Directions: In Section A, you will hear ten short conversations between two speakers. At the end of each conversation, a question will be asked about what was said. The conversations and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a conversation and the question about it, read the four possible answers on your paper, and decide which one is the best answer to the question you have heard. 1. W: Can you help me out? I’m trying to find Hotel Hilton. M: Turn right at the traffic light. It is next to the new shopping center. Q: Where does the woman want to go? 2. W: Oh, no. It’s five o’clock already, and I haven’t finished my homework. M: Don’t worry. That clock is fifteen minutes fast. You still have time to do it. Q: What time is it now? 3. M: I must say, Miss, the food was great and I’ve never had better service. W: Well, thank you, Sir. I’ll pass your praise on to the cook and the manager. And thanks too for the tip. Q: What is the woman’s job? 4. M: When you saw the accident, did you ring us immediately? W: Yes. The first thing I did was to call the police. Q: What is the probable relationship between the two speakers? 5. M: Did you hear that the latest movie of Angelina Jolie is coming soon? I’m excited. W: Well, not for me. Look, I have piles of work to do. Q: What can we learn from the conversation? 6. W: God, what a hot day! Why not stop and get some ice cream? M: I desperately need that to cool down, but my dentist suggested me avoiding that kind of thing. Q: What does the man mean? 7. W: You don’t seem to be able to sit still today. What’s going on? M: Today they’ll announce who gets the big prize. Q: How does the man probably feel? 8. M: As you can see from the drawings, the kitchen has one door into the dining room, another into the family room and a third to the outside.
W: The door into the family room isn’t big enough. Could it be made wider? Q: What are the speakers doing? 9. W: I must have told Mike five times not to forget the meeting, and he still missed it. M: Well, you know, Mike — everything goes in one ear and out the other. Q: What can be inferred about Mike? 10. M: What about your travel, Miss Smith? W: To tell the truth, I should have had a survey. The advertisement didn’t seem reliable. Q: What does the woman imply? Section B Directions: In Section B, you will hear two short passages, and you will be asked three questions on each of the passages. The passages will be read twice, but the questions will be spoken only once. When you hear a question, read the four possible answers on your paper and decide which one would be the best answer to the question you have heard. Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage. (First reading) The United States is one of the world’s leading agricultural nations, but few Americans are farmers. One recent study showed just two percent of the population with the job in agriculture. Yet, small farms seem to be appearing in many areas to meet a growing demand for locally produced food. The people operating these small farms often have little or no experience in farming. Mark Mills once worked as a chef. He decided to leave his secure job and turn to farming. He says his decision was based on a strong interest in agriculture. Federal, state and local governments believe now is the time to create jobs and new businesses. Mark Mills was one of four people accepted in the New Farmer Pilot Project in Montgomery County, Maryland. The project provides the new farmers with specialized business training, like marketing and business planning. It provides the connection with the landowner, so that the new farmers can have the land to farm on. Besides, it also provides the financing for the deer fence and the irrigation. Mr. Mills’ first year in farming was successful. He produced about 450 kilograms of turnips, 90 kilograms of carrots, and 130 kilograms of green leafy vegetables. But the problem he is facing now is how to sell them. (Second reading) … Questions 11. Why did Mark Mills leave his job according to the passage? 12. Which of the following is not included in the program for new farmers? 13. What does the passage mainly talk about?
Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. (First reading) Well, to pick up where we left off last time, I believe we agreed that creativity is a mysterious idea. It was those things we all recognize when we see it, but w e don’t really understand what it is. We seem to feel that some people are naturally creative, but we don’t know how they got that way. Is creativity a natural gift like good looks, or is it something that can be acquired like knowledge? Perhaps if we analyze the creative process carefully, we might understand what it is and how it might work in our lives. The creative process has always been accepted as the source of all important work in the arts, but we should not think the creativity plays a role only in the arts. Every major scientific discovery began with someone imagining the world to look differently from the way others saw it. And this is what creativity is all about -- imagining the world in a new way. And despite what you may believe about the limits of your own creative imaginations, we all have the potential to imagine the world in an absolutely new way. In fact, you are born with it. It is your birth right as a human being. And what’s more, you use it every day, almost every moment of your life. Your creative imagination is what you use to make sense of your experiences. It’s your creative mind that gets meaning from different experiences and brings order to your world. (second reading) … Questions. 14. What did the speaker most probably discuss last time? 15. What leads to major scientific discoveries according to the speaker? 16. What does the speaker imply about the creative process? Section C Directions: In Section C, you will hear two longer conversations. The conversations will be read twice. After you hear each conversation, you are required to fill in the numbered blanks with the information you have heard. Write your answers on your answer sheet. Blanks 17 through 20 are based on the following conversation. (First reading) M: Hello. Thanks very much for coming down to the police station. Can you spell your name? W: OK. Phoebe. P-h-o-e-b-e. M: OK. That’s P-h-o-e-b-e. W: Right. M: Well, could you describe the man who robbed the convenience store? Now, anything at all that you can remember would be extremely helpful to us. W: The man was tall, six feet, and he had dark hair, and he had moustache.
M: Very good. All right, did he have any other special marks? W: Um, no, none that I can remember. M: How old does he look like? W: Well, I guess around 30. M: Mm, all right. Do you remember anything about what he was wearing? W: Yes, yes, he had on a dark sweater. M: OK. Um, anything else that impresses you at the moment? W: I remember he was wearing a light shirt under the sweater. Yes, yes. M: All right. Phoebe, I really appreciate what you’ve been through today. I’m just going to ask you to look at some photographs before you leave if you don’t mind. Can you do that for me? W: Oh, of course. (Second reading) … Complete the form. Write ONE WORD for each answer. Blanks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation. (First reading) W: Excuse me, Pro. Johnson. May I speak to you for a minute? M: Sure. Come in. W: I’m Taylor Parks. I’m taking your course in International Marketing. M: Right. Well, Taylor, how can I help you? W: I’m…having a bit of trouble with the second assignment, and it’s due in two weeks. M: What sort of trouble are you having? Is the assignment question a problem? W: Well, the problem is I’m having trouble borrowing the books. I’ve been to the library several times, and all the books are out. M: Sounds like you should have started borrowing books a bit earlier. W: Well, I had a really big assignment due in for another course, and I’ve been spending all my time on that, and I thought… M: …you might get an extension of time to finish your assignment for me? W: If that’s possible, but I don’t know… M: Well, yes, it is possible, but extensions are normally given only for medical reasons, otherwise it’s really a question of organizing your study. What did you get for your first assignment? W: I got eighty-seven per cent. M: Mmm, yes, you did very well indeed, so obviously you can produce good work. W: I don’t think I’ll need too much extra time, as long as I can borrow the books for reference. M: Well, since you did so well in your first assignment, I’m prepared to give you an extra two weeks for this one, so that you’ll need to email it to me a month from now. W: Thank you.
