It′s that time of the year-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.

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 job"，he answered，"I don′t care. I know what I′m doing is good. "
He admits it was fearful making such a big change when there was the mortgage（分期付款） to pay and kids to clothe and feed，but in the end he feels it is a simple choice. "If you′re in a job you don′t like，get out. Money′s not everything. If you don′t like it，change-find something you′re going to be happy with. "

It is widely accepted that English is the global language of modern times.
About three decades ago，French was recognized as the language of diplomacy （外交），and German was considered the language of science and technology. English now dominates（主导） not only as the language of science but also diplomacy，computing，and tourism. Today， in terms of native speakers，Mandarin Chinese is the world′s largest language.
Yet there are people who believe that China will become the most powerful country in the world. Some have even fixed the date as early as the year 2020. At present，while English is more widely spoken than any other language，there are more people who speak Chinese than English due to the large population in China alone. If China does become a world power，there is no doubt that this language will spread worldwide.
As the controversy over which language will become dominant in the world continues，there are many who feel that the dominance of English is unique and irreversible （不可逆的 ）。 However，a separate study from David Graddol′s suggests that English′s dominance in the scientific area will continue. There is also an argument that the English language would be changed greatly by 2020 for various reasons. With the possibility of China rising as a world power，Mandarin could definitely challenge the dominance of English as a global language.
第43题单选 Which language is now considered as the language of diplomacy?

第45题单选 The author says that Chinese is expected to spread worldwide if__________.
A.China becomes a real world power

D.more tourists come to China
第46题单选 What does controversy in the last paragraph probably mean?
All but the tiniest of roads have to have names so they can be recognized on a map，and so people can ask directions to them. Americans name a lot of bridges，too.
Very often these names carry a clear geographical reference the Pennsylvania Turnpike，for example. Or，like the George Washington Bridge，roads and bridges are named for famous historical figures or powerful officers.
We make a big deal out of naming things，as when someone decided to name an airport after a U. S. judge. So now we have the Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Many，if not most，of our college buildings are named for wealthy people who gave a lot of money to the schools. And our sports centers took this idea a step further. Companies paid a whole lot of money for what′s called the "naming rights" to U. S. Cellular Field in Chicago，for example，and Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
Now the governor（州长） of Virginia，Bob McDonnell，wants to sell naming rights to roads and bridges in the state. He says not just companies，but also wealthy people，would help the Virginia transportation budget（预算） by paying to have their names--or perhaps those of loved ones--placed on roads and bridges，and thus on maps as well.
People hold different views，however. Supporters say Americans are used to having things sponsored（赞助）。Others disagree，considering the idea as the next step in the "companies of America. " They wonder how far such an idea might spread，and where it would end:at the Burger King Pacific Ocean，perhaps.
