Are you an introvert (内向的人) or an extrovert? If you find neither of those fit your personality, perhaps you are an “ambivert” (中间性格者).
Experts say there’s a middle ground between introvert and extrovert personality types. They are called “ambiverts”, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Introverts don’t like crowds and enjoy keeping their thoughts to themselves. Extroverts, on the other hand, like meeting new people and being the center of attention. Ambiverts, as the name suggests, have both introverted and extroverted characteristics (特征). But neither set of characteristics is completely in control.
As a result, they can move between being social and being alone very easily. For example, ambiverts often enjoy being with other people. But after a long day of work, sometimes they prefer reading a book or watching a TV series at home alone instead.
“It is like they’re bilingual (双语的),” Daniel Pink, the host of Crowd Control, a US TV series on human behavior , told The Wall Street Journal. “They can connect with a wider range of people the same way someone who speaks both English and Spanish can.”
Ambiverts have gotten more attention in recent years. In fact, about two-thirds of people in the US are ambiverts, according to a personality survey by Adam M. Grant, a professor of psychology(心理学) at the University of Pennsylvania.
Grant believes ambiverts have the advantages of both introverts and extroverts. But he also points out they struggle (挣扎) too. They are often unsure which side of their personality should lead them in a given situation. So do you think you are an ambivert?
64.Which of the following is NOT a characteristic of introverts?
A. They don’t like noisy places. B. They don’t like sharing their thoughts.
C. They like to be the center of attention. D. They don’t like meeting new people. 65. Paragraphs 4 and 5 are mainly about _____.
A. the activities ambiverts do B. the characteristics of ambiverts
C. the advantages of ambiverts
D. the relationship between being bilingual and an ambivert
66.What does the underlined pronoun “they” in Paragraph 5 refer to?
A. Introverts. B. Extroverts. C. Bilingual people. D. Ambiverts.
67.According to Grant, _____.
A. ambiverts don’t need much attention nowadays
B. about 70 percent of American people are ambiverts
C. ambiverts are quite sure about themselves
D. ambiverts have more advantages than other personalities
Perhaps Vincent van Gogh (1853 -1890) isn’t the most famous artist in the world, but his personal story is probably the most well-known. The paintings he created didn’t become famous until after he died. And this year marks the 126th anniversary of his death.
Van Gogh was born to a rich family in Netherlands (荷兰). He started his career working for an art dealer (艺术品商). But then he tried other things like teaching in England. He also tried to become a priest (牧师) but failed the exams.
Finally, he found something else to believe in when he lived in Belgium (比利时) – art. He returned to his childhood love of painting and drawing.
He was an important artist in a generation that challenged the Impressionist (印象派) style. Post-Impressionists, like Van Gogh, wanted to show the world as it felt to them, not always as it looked.
Van Gogh used different forms and colors to make his art more abstract (抽象的). The way he used colors was especially impressive. In Wheatfield with Crows (1890), the colors are very intense (强烈的). Corn is yellow, grass is green, and crows (乌鸦) are black. But the colors are used in such a way that it looks better than a photograph.
Unfortunately, Van Gogh’s art wasn’t very popular while he was alive. He was poor and was thought to have mental problems, which led to his death. What had made him so sad? It could have been the troubles he faced working as an artist in a practical world.
68.Van Gogh did the following jobs EXCEPT ______.

A. Van Gogh got rich thanks to his paintings
B. Van Gogh lived a sad life in his latter years
C. Van Gogh’s art was popular during his lifetime
D. Van Gogh died because of mental problems
71. What does the story mainly talk about?
A. Impressionists. B. Post-Impressionists.
C. Wheatfield with Crows. D. Vincent van Gogh
Years ago, a very rich man and his young son shared an interest in collecting art. They traveled around the world, collecting priceless works of art by famous artists like Picasso, Van Gogh and Monet.
The man became very lonely and sad. When war broke out, the son left to serve his country. After a few weeks, the old man received a letter saying his son had died while taking another soldier to a hospital. One day, a soldier visited the old man and gave him a painting – it was a portrait of his son. Though the world would never consider it a great work, the painting was important to the man.
The painting of his son became the old man’s most valuable item. He told his neighbors it was the greatest gift he had ever received. The following spring, the old man became ill and passed away.
All of the old man’s paintings would be sold at an auction. The auction began with a painting that was not on any of the buyers’ lists ... it was the painting of the old man’s son. “Who will open the price at $100 ?” the auctioneer asked. Moments passed and no one spoke or raised their hand. Someone said: “Who cares about that painting? Let’s get on to the good ones.” More voices followed in agreement. “No, we must sell this one first,” replied the auctioneer. “Now, who will take the portrait of the son?
Finally, a good friend of the old man spoke: “Will you take $10 for the painting? That’s all I have.” “Will anyone go higher?” called the auctioneer. After more silence he said: “Going once ... going twice ... sold!” The auctioneer looked at the crowd and announced that the whole auction was over. “According to the father’s will, whoever takes the son’s portrait gets the whole collection,” the auctioneer said.

__ 76______Well, Chengdu is at the top of the rankings (排名) for China’s Happiest Cities released by Xinhua News Agency and the China Association of Mayors. This is the second year in a row that the capital city of Sichuan was chosen.
77 As People’s Daily said, “part of the reason is the relaxing and slow-paced (慢节奏的) lifestyle that many people in Chengdu live.”
To find the pleasures of the Chengdu lifestyle, 78 Chengdu cuisine is famous for the use of the tongue-numbing (使舌头发麻的),Sichuanese peppercorn (花椒) and hot chillies (辣椒). “Nothing is more important to Chengdu people than food,” said Du Li, a professor at the Sichuan Higher Institute of Cuisine. 79 There are around 40,000 restaurants in Chengdu.
Another important part of Chengdu life is the teahouses. Found everywhere in the city, 80 Teahouses are also a place to do business, meet with friends, show off pet birds, listen to Chuanju (Sichuan opera), and most importantly, play mahjong. As a local saying goes, “If you cannot find someone, he or she is either playing mahjong, or on their way to play mahjong.”

In the West many families go away on holiday during the summer months and so it is very usual to ask about this. If the holiday has not yet taken place, their holiday plans can be talked about. And if it is already over, where they went, whether they enjoyed it and so on can be discussed. Similar questions are asked before festivals and public holidays. Foreigners living and working in china often have many opportunities to travel. either at weekends or during their holidays. They may be particularly interested to hear comments on which places are worth visiting and why, especially if these places are a little less well-known and not clearly described in the tour guides.

also care for each other and help those in need. The most important point is that all of us must be
honest in our daily life.
Finally , we should obey the school rules and play an active part in school activies,
Let’s start right now to build a harmonious school.
1)、 直接位于句首做主语。例如： Swimming is a good sport in summer.
2)、 用 it 作形式主语，把动名词(真实主语)置于句尾作后置主语。 动名词做主语时，不太常用 it 作先行主语，多见于某些形容词及名词之后。例如： It is no use telling him not to worry.
3)、动名词作主语与动词不定式作主语的比较：动词不定式和动名词都可以用作主语。在意义上相近。但动名词多用来表示泛指或抽象动作，不定式多用来表示特指或具体动作。比较： Smoking is not good for health. It is not good for you to smoke so much.
Your task is cleaning the windows. 你的任务就是擦窗户。(Cleaning the windows is your task.)
What I hate most is being laughed at. 我最痛恨的就是被别人嘲笑。 (Being laughed at is what I hate most.)
动名词作定语往往表示被修饰词的某种用途。如： a washing machine=a machine for washing=a machine which is used for washing 。
例：We are thinking of making a new plan for the next term. 我们正考虑为下学期制定新的计划。
5、有些词后只能接动名词 ，不能跟不定式。 allow;avoid; celebrate; consider; discontinue; dislike; enjoy; escape; excuse; explain; feel like; finish; forgive; can’t help; imagine; keep; it means;mind; miss; practice; prevent;等
6、另外还有一些接-ing形式的常用短语。 spend money/time; think of， give up， put off， insist on， be good at， do well in， can't help， keep on， feel like， be tired (afraid， capable， fond) of， look forward to, be used to, devote oneself to, stick to, respond to, look forward to,
7、 有些词后面加不定式和动名词均可，例如：remember, forget, try, stop, go on, stop,regret,mean后面均可用不定式和-ing形式，但意义截然不容。 例： like doing sth 表经常性动作like to do sth表习惯性动作;
stop doing sth,停止正在做的事情stop to do sth停下来做另外一件事; remember,forget,regret的不定时结构指后于谓语动词的动作，动词的ing形式则先于谓语动词的动作 remember to do/doing： ①I remembered to post the letters.(指未来/过去未来将要做的动作) ②I remembered posting/having posted the letters.(我记得做过这个动作)
try to(努力)与try +–ing(试验)： ①I tried not to go there.(我设法不去那里)
②I tried doing it again.(我试着又干了一次);go on to do sth继续做某事(不是同一件事)， go on doing sth继续做某事(同一件事);
典型例题：Do you mind_________ me with my work.?
A.to help B.help C.helping D.helped
典型例题：Don't forget _____ this book to John when you see him.
A. to return B. returning C. return D. to returning
解析：本题考查forget加不定式和动名词的区别。Forget to do表示“忘记曾经做过某事”，事情已经做过; forget doing表示“忘记去做某事”，事情还没做。根据语境“当你见到John 的时候，别忘记把这本书给他”，可知事情还没做，应该用不定式。
