山东省青岛市2016届高三三月自主练习英语试卷(阅读理解A)

        While other students were taking part in workshops or planning baths for their pets on a typical Thursday morning,I spent mine doing an internship(实习)at Western Massachusetts Labor Action,a non-profit organization that helps low-income members of society.

        Upon arriving there,I didn’t know what to expect.Do people just come in and ask for food? Is there more paperwork or in-the-field action? This opportunity, however,helped me to answer my questions.

        One morning,while my partner and I were doing the office work,our supervisor(主管)    called us into his office to listen to a conversation on the phone.

        On the other end of the line,a 65-year-old man living in a nearby town said desperately that their electricity company was shutting off his heat due to his debt issues.“You are my last hope.Otherwise,my family and I will have a very hard time surviving the cold winter,”the man said,his voice losing contro1.Hearing this terrible news,my supervisor frowned,but told him,“Don’t worry.I’11 do everything I can to help you.”Then he quickly called the electricity company.

        After a long negotiation,my supervisor managed to give the 65-year-old man a debt    repayment(偿付)system,which meant that he could pay off his debt a little bit per month.He was calling to tell the man the good news when the man suddenly shouted that he was having a heart attack.My partner and I just looked at each other and kept silent.After seconds that felt like hours,the man told us that it was a false alarm and that he was all right.

        I was amazed at this man and his family’s situation,but was even more impressed that my supervisor had saved them from a hardship like a whole winter without heat.My supervisor was a superhero! From that moment on,I have had great respect for all forms of community service and felt thankful that I could be a part of it-giving back what I have to the community and helping others achieve happiness.
