In a 2005 survey of 2005 schoolchildren in six cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, it was found that about 77% of them were short of sleep. Should school hours be cut? In  new survey taken by the China Daily website, almost 70% of the 1, 133 people online agreed with cutting school hours, while 20% disagreed and 10% gave no answer.
Liu Xing (12-year-old, 6-grade student): I get up at 5:50 every school day, have breakfast at 6:15, leave home at 6:30 and, after a 30-minute bus ride, arrive at school at 7:00, a full hour before lessons start.

It is said that as the population of a city grows, so do its problems. Pollution, too many cars, and crowded streets are just a few of these difficulties. One way to help with these problems is city trains. Trains traveling to different parts of a city mean fewer cars and buses on our roads, cleaner air, and more open streets. In recent years, cities such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai have all built city train lines.
The first city train line in China was built in Beijing. The oldest part of the train line, from Beijing Zhan to Ping Guo Yuan was opened in 1969. Its length was 23.6 kilometres. As the city grew after 1980, so did the need for more trains. A newer train line was built to help move people around the city centre. The 16-kilometre-long “circle (环形) line” was finished in 1987. Since that time even more train stations have been built and today the train lines in the city are over 50 kilometres long.
For the 2008 Olympic Games, the trains of Beijing will be very important. It is thought that most of the people who go to watch the different sports during the Games will travel using trains.
(    )11. Trains traveling to different parts of a city mean       cars and buses on our roads,
A. lots of        B. litle         C. fewer         D. less
(    )12. The passage tells us about ________.
      A. the problems in big cities        B. city trains
      C. the history of Beijing           D. 2008 Olympic Games
(    )13. How long was the first train line in Beijing?
       A. About 16 kms.   B. About 23 kms.    C. About 33 kms.    D. About 50 kms.
(    )14. In 1977, which of the following places in Beijing could you go to by train?
      A. Chao Yang Men.   B. An Ding Men.   C. Che Gong Zhuang.   D. He Ping Men.
(    )15. Which of the following is true?
      A. In 2008, the Beijing train line will be nearly 40 years old.
      B. The larger population a city has, the fewer problems it faces.
      C. More and more cities are building undergrounds for the 2008 Olympic Games.
      D. There are 20 stations on the “circle line” in Beijing.

"Do you like my dress?" she asked a stranger. "My mum made it just for me," she said with tears in her eyes.
"Well, I think it's very pretty, so tell me, little girl, why are you crying?"
The little girl answered in a low voice, "After mum made me this dress, she went away. My
dad says that she's up in heaven (天堂) now with Grandfather."
Finally the woman realized why she was crying. She felt very sorry for the little girl and gently held the child in her arms.
Then suddenly the little girl did something a bit strange. She stopped crying, walked back from the woman and began to sing. She sang softly. It was the sweetest sound the woman had ever heard, almost like the song of a very small bird.
After the child stopped singing, she said to the lady, "My mum often sang that song to me before she went away, and she asked me to sing it whenever I started crying and it would make me stop."
"See," she said loudly, "it did, and now my eyes are dry!"
Just before the lady wanted to go, the girl showed her a spot (印迹) on her dress, and said, "Right here is where my mum kissed (吻) my dress, and here," pointing to another spot, "and here is another kiss, and here, and here. Mum said that she put all those kisses on my dress so that I would forget my sadness."
Then the lady realized that she wasn't just looking at a dress, no, she was looking at a mother. The mother knew that she was going away and would not be there to kiss away her daughter's hurts any longer.
So the mother gave all her love to her beautiful daughter and put it into this dress. Now her
child was wearing it so proudly.
The lady no longer saw a little girl wearing a simple dress. She saw a child wrapped (包) in her mother's love.

Did you see snow in your hometown last winter? Did you feel it was warmer than before?
"There have been 21 warm winters in China since 1986," said scientists. They also said that in the past 100 years, as the global (全球的) temperatures went up by 0.74 °C , the temperature in North China has climbed 1.4 °C in only 50 years.
China needs to take quick action to cut carbon dioxide (二氧化碳) emission (排放),
because it's the main reason for global warming. The good news is that China has seen the importance of going green. China set the goal of cutting energy use by 20 and pollution emission by 10 in the 11th Five-Year Plan.
Can you slow global warming? Sure! You and your family can take steps to cut the amount
of carbon dioxide that is sent out into the air.
Here are some pieces of advice to help you save the earth.
Wear used clothes. Wearing your brother's, sister's or dad's old T-shirt means you save the energy.                                                                       
Change your light bulbs (灯泡). Use energy-saving light bulbs. And don't forget to turn off the lights when you leave a room and turn off your television and computer when they are not in use!
Ride the bus. Taking a bus saves a lot of oil every year.
Say no to plastic bags. The next time your parents go to the market, ask them to use baskets
Open a window. Don't use the air conditioner (空调), and let some fresh air in. When you have to use the conditioner, set the temperature higher in the summer and lower in the winter to save energy
Make small changes in your daily life. Don't use paper cups, bags and boxes.
It's time for all of us to do something to save the earth.
(   )11. The main reason for global warming is ____.

Waste can be seen everywhere in the school. Some students ask for more food than they can eat and others often forget to turn off the lights when they leave the classroom. They say they can afford these things. But I don't agree with them.
Waste can bring a lot of problems. Although China is rich in some resources(资源) , we are short of (缺乏) others,  for example,  fresh water(淡水). It is reported that we will have no coal(煤) or oil to use in 100 years. So if we go on wasting our resources,  what can we use in the future and where can we move? Hunk about it. I think we should say no to the students who waste things every day. Everybody should stop wasting as soon as possible.
In our everyday life,  we can do many things to prevent waste from happening, for example, turn off the water taps(水龙头) when we finish washing,  turn off the lights when we leave the classroom, try not to order more food than we need,  and so on. Little by little,  everything will be changed. Waste can be stopped one day,  if we do our best.
(   )1. From the  passage we  know that some  students  often ________ in the school.
A. eat too much         B. don't work hard
C. waste things         D. throw rubbish everywhere
(   )2. Which is not mentioned in this passage?
A. Fresh water.        B. Forest.   C. Oil.        D. Coal.
(   )3. What may happen in 100 years?
A. We may still have enough oil.   B. We may still have enough coal.
C. We may have a little oil.     D. We may have no coal or oil to use.
(   )4. Which of the following is right?
A. Waste brings problems.   B. Waste can bring no problem.

If you don’t think you can speak to them at the moment, try writing a letter.
    Try to reach a compromise (和解). Perhaps you and your parents disagree on something. more information, please You can keep your disagreement and try your best to accept each other. Michael’s mother didn’t agree with him about buying a motorcycle. They argued over it. But they finally came to a compromise. Michael bought the motorcycle, but only drove it on certain days.
    Of course, your parents might refuse to compromise on something. In these situations, it is especially important to show love and respect (尊敬) to them. Showing respect will keep your relationship strong.

As soon as he saw the bird, he wished to kill her, and he would certainly do so, but the ant bit(咬) him in one of his feet and at that moment the bird flew away at once.

    “I don’t like my parents. They always tell me I should do this, and should not do that. It sometimes makes me angry,” said Zhang Hua, a middle school student in Guangzhou. Do you have the same problem? Perhaps your parents had the same problem when they were your age long ago. Why does it seem that some parents are not so friendly in their children’s eyes?
One of the biggest things is when someone becomes a parent. He/She likes worrying things. They worry about everything about you, from the time you were born. They do a lot for you, though something would make you angry, because they care about you and worry about you. They worry about your choice (选择) of friends, the food you eat, your work at school, how much sleep you get, etc. All these things are part of your life. They want you to grow up healthily and happily.
So how can you make things easier on yourself? It’s easier than you think. Just make sure your parents know what you’re doing. Get them to know your friends. Call them if you stay somewhere else later than usual. Say sorry to them when you make mistakes. Take responsibility (责任) for what you have done. Talk about your ideas with them. They may talk about theirs with you.
Most of all, try to think about why your parents do this or do that. They are still practicing being parents and need help you can give them. Someday, when you become a parent, they may be able to help you how to get on with your children.
(   )11. From this passage, most children like Zhang Hua don’t like their parents because _______.
      A. their parents always tell them what they should do and what they shouldn’t do
      B. their parents sometimes care about them and worry about them
      C. their parents do everything for them

       Once a tiger was in a cage. Soon a good man went by. As soon as the tiger saw the man, the tiger began to cry. “Please! Please!” the tiger called. “Please, let me out.” “No,” said the good man. “If I do, you will eat me.” “I will not eat you,” the tiger said. “Please let me out.”
The good man believed the tiger. He opened the door of the cage. The tiger jumped out. “How silly you are,” the tiger laughed. “Now I am going to eat you.” “Wait!” the man cried. “You ought not to eat me. Let us ask others what they think.” “You may ask three others. ” the tiger said.
The good man asked a tree. The tree said, “I give shade (树荫). And yet I am cut down. Let the tiger eat you.”
Next, the good man asked a bird. The bird said, “I hurt no one. Yet people hunt and kill me. Let the tiger eat you.”
The last one that the good man asked was a road. The road said, “I don’t care if the tiger eats you. People could not get along too well without me. Yet all day and all night people step on me without even a ‘thank you’.”
The tiger was ready to eat the good man. Just then a dog came by. “What is happening?” asked the dog. The man told the dog the whole story.
“I don’t understand,” said the dog. “The tiger wants to eat you because you put him in a cage?”
“No, no,” said the man. “Some other men put him in a cage.”
“Oh,” the dog said. “He is going to eat you because you do not have a cage.”
“Silly dog!” the tiger cried. “Don’t you understand? I was in the cage. This man let me out.”
“Oh, I see,” the dog said. “When the man was in the cage, you let him out.”
“I was in the cage!” the tiger cried. “In this way!” with that, he jumped back into the cage.
At once, the dog closed the door of the cage. “Oh,” the dog laughed. “At last I understand!”
The good man and the dog walked off. The tiger looked sad in the cage. If he waited long enough, perhaps another good man would come by.

 Edith Cavell was born in a little English village. She was a clever, hard-working girl and did well at school, especially in music and French. After she left school, her first job was to take care of the children of a rich family in Belgium(比利时). The language they spoke was French, so she found that her school studies were useful. She could understand them easily, at the same time she taught the children to speak English and play the piano.

Edith treated them with kindness. Between November 1914 and August 1915 she secretly helped about 200 wounded soldiers and prisoners (囚犯) escape from the Germans. Later the German army found out what Edith had done and they arrested her. Finally, the Germans killed her, but they could not kill her memory.

Dear Sir,
I am writing to you about my stay at your hotel. My wife and I arrived on Saturday, 15th May and stayed for a week. Though we were treated well and found the service excellent, we think there are one or two matters we should bring your attention.
  1. We had hoped for a nice holiday from our busy work lives, and your advertisement said “comfortable and quiet”. We want to have a chance to enjoy ourselves. However, we were always waken up by the noise every morning. Is it really necessary for the workers to start their repair work so early?
  2. We had hoped to swim in your “wonderful pool”. To our disappointment(失望), we found that it was closed for the whole time of our stay.
  I hope you do not mind my writing to you about these things, but I would be happy if you could give me some explanation. As I said at the start, it is a pity, and your service is so good in other fields.
  I hope to hear from you soon.
Yours sincerely
Mr Hector Bradley

Proverbs(谚语) are quite common in spoken English. We don’t normally put them in a composition or a letter. Sometimes it is helpful if you know what common proverbs mean. Here are a few examples.
1) “Once bitten, twice shy.” If a dog bites me, I shall be twice as careful in future when I see it. This proverb is also used to apply(适用) to many things and not only to dogs. If you have been cheated at a shop, you will not go the same shop again.
2)  “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush(树丛).” If I am a hunter, trying to catch birds, it is better to catch one than to see two birds in a bush but not able to catch them. Thus this means that what you have already got is better than the chance of being able to get something bigger in future.
3)  “Too many cooks spoil the broth (soup)”. When too many people do something, they get in each other’s way and do a bad job.
4)  “To pour oil on troubled waters” is to try to calm things down. Oil is lighter than water. If a ship is in trouble at sea, another ship may come to help it. The second ship can send small boats to rescue (营救)people. However, it may first pour oil on the sea to make the sea less rough.
5)  “Don’t be a dog in a manger( 槽 )”means“ Don’t be selfish.” In a stable ( 马房 ), the manger is the place where the horse’s food is put. Sometimes a dog will sleep in the manger and bark when a horse comes to get its food. The dog does want to eat the food in the manger but it will not let the horse eat it.
6)  “He is sitting on the fence(围墙) ” means that somebody will not say whether he is in favor of a plan or against it. He is sitting on a fence between two opposing sides, perhaps waiting to see which side will win.
7) “He who pays the piper(吹笛者) calls the tune.” A piper is a musician. The man who employs or pays a musician can say what tunes the man will play. Thus this means that if a man provides the money for a plan, he can say how it will be carried out.
8) “You can’t get blood out of a stone” means that you cannot get something from a person who has not got any of the things you want. e. g. you cannot get a million dollars from a poor man.
(   )6. Peter has a bicycle which is much too small for him but he does not want to let his younger brother ride on it. His mother is angry and says to him: ______.
      A. You can’t get blood out of a stone        B. Don’t be a dog in a manger
      C. The early bird gets the worm            D. To pour oil on troubled waters

What’s the meaning of “dark horse”? It’s someone who wins when no one expects it.
Han Xiaopeng took China’s first gold on snow. He became an Olympic “dark horse” last Thursday by winning the gold medal in men’s freestyle aerial skiing(自由式滑雪空中技巧) at Turin in Italy. He made two almost perfect jumps for the highest score. Han had never won a world gold medal before, let alone(更不用说) in the Olympics!
“I never thought this would happen,” said the 23-year-old. “I feel like I’m in a dream.” It’s China’s second gold medal at the Turin Olympics. But more important, Han’s gold was the country’s first ever in a snow sport. In 2002, China’s Yang Yang won the gold for speed skating at the winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, US.
Just because Han’s win was unexpected doesn’t mean that he didn’t work hard.
Han grew up in Jiangsu Province. Before he started his training on snow, he used to be an acrobat(杂技演员) at a circus. In 1995, a coach found his talent(才能). The coach, Yang Er’qi, said Han had the agility(灵活性) and courage to be a ski jumper. When Yang first took the 12-year-old to northern China, the boy couldn’t swim, skate or ski. But he wasn’t afraid of the high platform(跳台) and kept on training.
Han almost left the sport after hurting his knee months before the Salt Lake Games. In that Olympics he only got 24th. “I was hopeless at that time, but my family and the coach stood firmly(坚强地) behind me, helping me through,” he recalled.
    Han Xiaopeng worked so hard that he won the gold medal in the Olympics at last. Because of his success, more and more people in China are becoming interested in skiing. We are proud of him and we hope he will have another big success in the next winter Olympics.
(   )11. What does ‘dark horse’ mean? It means _____________.
       A. a horse which is dark           B. someone who is expected to win
       C. a horse which likes living in the dark   D. someone whose win is unexpected
(   )12. Where did Han Xiaopeng take China’s first gold on snow?
       A. In China   .    B. In Italy.      C. In America.    D. In Australia.
(   )13. What made the coach, Yang Er’qi, choose Han Xiaopeng to be a ski jumper?
      A. He had the agility and wasn’t afraid of the high platform.
      B. He was good at skiing though he was only 12 years old.
      C. He was born in the north of China and liked sports on snow.
      D. He had the talent and he had won a world gold medal before.
(   )14. Which of the following sentences is NOT TRUE according to the passage?
      A. He was 23 when he won the gold medal at the winter Olympics.
      B. He made two almost perfect jumps and got the highest score.
      C. No one had won the gold before Han Xiaopeng at the winter Olympics.
      D. He never gave up even though he had faced many difficulties.
(   )15. What is the best title for this passage?
       A. A Dark Horse at the Winter Olympics      B. A Wonderful Match
      C. A Hopeless Snow Game                 D. An Exciting Horse Race
