2020-02-27 20:42:06来源:安徽成考网点击:

四、阅读理解(共15小题;每题3分,共45分。) 阅读下列短文,然后根据短文的内容从每小题的四个选择项中选出最佳的一项。

It´s that time of the yea—graduation. The end of school year is nearly in sight,and it´s an especially big deal if you´re finishing high school or college.

One amazing(令人惊叹的) 16-year-old Florida girl, Grace Bush, graduated from both high school and college this week! She actually got her college diploma(毕业证书) before her high school diploma. How´d she do that?

"Hard work and dedication(专心致志)," she told a local TV news station," have made me succeed in doing high school and college at the same time. " She started taking college courses when she was just 13. She would often get up at 5:30 a.m. and not finish until after 11 p. m.

Doing both at once is a huge achievement, but it has also helped her family save money. She´s one of the 9 children, all home-schooled until the age of 13. Her father is a math professor while her mother is a part-time history teacher in a high school. Grace Bush has earned her college degree in law, with a near perfect GPA of 3.8 and she hopes to become a lawyer one day, although her parents expect her to teach at university. By the way, she also plays basketball in her college team in her spare time.

Ron was an engineer. He planned a change and tried the new job of teaching kids how to swim. Ron´s easy manner soon made him a full-time employee at the swim school.

Now,the 40 hours he works a week takes in weekends, early mornings and late afternoons. He earns around 25% less than he did in engineering. But,at 49,he says he has never been happier. "I´ve had a drop in pay, but I´ve cut back on spending,too. I seldom drive to work so don´t have to pay as much for petrol(汽油). I don´t drink as much. I go walking in my lunch break and I´ve lost 20 kilos. I love going to work. The whole family is a lot happier. "

When one of his brothers called, offering to help him find "a real i oh", he answered,"I don´t care. I know what I´m doing is good. "
