homeschooled their four children. Three of us had no trouble learning, but my
sister Catherine still could not 14 by fifth grade, and worse still, did not even
know the alphabet.
My mother did some research and founded that Catherine had some kind of learning disability.
She sent Catherine to a public school to 15 some help. Catherine made many friends at school and
pleased with everyone for telling creative stories in class, but she still couldn't master reading. After
all the testing was done, the school had my 16 come in. They were told that according to the
test results, they should just take Catherine home.
Tears of sadness ran down my dad's cheeks, but my mom made up her mind quietly. As they
walked back to the car, she turned to him and said, "I know she's not 17 ."
Soon after, my mom discovered a learning system that focused heavily on lesson repetition
( 重复 ) and building slowly on the previous ( 先前的 ) exercises. She worked with Catherine for
four hours every morning while the rest of us studied on our own. It was
hard for both of them, but she often told a crying Catherine, " 18 is
not a choice. You are going to learn to read, and we'll both try! You have to
learn to read! You will learn to read."
In time, Catherine got it. By the time she graduated ( 毕业 ) from eighth grade, she was reading
almost at grade level. She continued 19 and was reading above grade level when she graduated
from high school.
Catherine came to love reading and writing. All of this because of a wonderfully devoted ( 挚

Five middle school students, all wearing "I choose kindness" T-shirts, sit around a table
discussing how to turn that message into action.
It was a class called "Ready, Set, Give!" in West Suburban Summer School, Minnesota, US.
For five days, from 8:30 am to 4 pm, Hannah, 13, Annette, 12, Allison, 12, Adelaide, 13 and Ben,
13, designed activities that could turn their kindness into action.
They learned a lot about service projects. For example,
after hearing about "Beyond the Yellow Ribbon", a program that
provides care to soldiers (士兵), the students made cards for
soldiers themselves. They filled care packages (爱心包裹) with
nuts, beef jerky, toothbrushes, even fresheners.
The best part, though, was choosing their own service projects. Adelaide is planning to set up a
lemonade stand to help the homeless. Annette is interested in protecting animals.
She plans to create posters to help people understand the dangers of ocean litter,
pesticides and pollution. Hannah and Allison are paying attention to protecting
the rights and health of young people. Ben wants to help people do a better job of
recycling plastic ( 塑料回收 ).
The students also visited Prism, a social service agency (服务机构) in Minnesota. They
worked for five hours, sorting donations, putting food on shelves and doing some cleaning.
Sarah Bailey, the activities' organizer, is confident that the students' projects will be successful.
"These guys are ready to take action," Bailey said. "It's more than I hoped for."

Growing up in the Chinese community in Vancouver, Canada, I had full time to experience
both Canadian and Chinese culture during my childhood.
In my community, many traditions and cultural traits brought by Chinese immigrants（移民）
remain alive. For example, interactions (互动) between Chinese neighbors: People greet each other
warmly and sometimes stop for a chat. Families also stay mostly the same after crossing the ocean.
Elderly members still live with their children instead of in care homes.
Another similarity is that many of us celebrate traditional Chinese holidays, such as Spring
festival. Although it's in a different country, the holidays are still commemorated with the same
foods, entertainment ( 娱乐活动 ) and values as they are in China. My family makes sure to watch
the Spring Festival Gala each year, for example.
While many ways of Chinese culture truly remain in Vancouver, there are also certain ways
that the Chinese and Canadian cultures have mixed to create something new and special. Many
children of Chinese immigrants, like myself, study in English at school and speak Chinese at
home, leading to communication without any trouble in both languages. Chinese communities also
celebrate Canadian holidays, like Halloween, which are not often celebrated in China.
Canadian culture has even taken on some Chinese foods and language. Chinese dishes are very
popular throughout Canada, many people are very interested in
trying them. More and more non-Chinese Canadians are learning
the language in order to enjoy Chinese holiday celebrations and
communicate with their Chinese of the same age.
As someone who grew up Chinese Canadian, I'm very proud
of my special background and how it has made me the person I am
27．According to the passage, what are Chinese immigrants in the writer's community like?
A．They seem too busy to stop for a chat.
B．Elderly people prefer to stay in care homes.
C．They also remain many Chinese traditions and values.
D．Their lifestyles remain unchanged after moving to Canada.
28．What does the underlined word commemorated probably mean?
A．Made. B．Started. C．Described. D．Celebrated.
29．What can we infer from the passage?
A．Canadians are open to Chinese culture.
B．Many Canadians can't get well with Chinese immigrants.
C．Canadians usually do better than Chinese people at school.
D．Canadians are unhappy with the influence of Chinese culture.
We all need to buy things from time to time, but do we think about how our shopping affects
people, animals and the environment? Here's how you can take better care of the world we live in
while you shop.
Ethical ( 伦理的，道德的 ) shopping
We all need to eat, drink and wear clothes. But what do we know about the products that we
buy in shops, in supermarkets or online? Many people in Britain want to know more about the
products they buy. They want to know how people, animals and our planet (地球) are treated when
food, drinks and clothes are produced.
The Fairtrade Foundation is based (总部设在) in the UK and helps farmers and workers in
poorer parts of the world make more money. The organization asks companies that grow products
such as coffee or bananas to pay for wages (工资) and to provide their workers with good working
conditions. If companies follow these requirements, they will receive a Fairtrade certificate (证书)
and can sell their products with the "Fairtrade" mark. About 5 million people in 58 countries benefit
from Fairtrade's practices.
On free range farms, farm animals spend time outside instead of being inside 24 hours a day.
Meat, eggs or dairy products, such as milk or cheese, can be free range. Some experts say that this
type of farming is preferable because it is very kind and the animals are healthier. Many people also
think that free range food tastes better and is more nutritious ( 有营养的 ).
Some clothing factories have been accused (指责) of having children as workers and of
allowing unsafe conditions in their factories. People nowadays are becoming more interested in
where their clothes are made, who they are made by and in what conditions. They want their clothes
to look good and be ethical. Most fashion manufacturers (制造商) have information about their
workers and their environmental policies (政策) on their websites. With the help of organizations
like Fairtrade, shoppers can make more choices about the products they buy.
30．If you shop ethically, you .
A．buy products online B．only buy things you need
C．care about how products are made D．compare the prices before buying things
31．What should the companies do if they received a Fairtrade certificate?
A．They should make more money.
B．They should treat their workers fairly.
C．They should grow more coffee or bananas.
D．They should make sure their products have the best quality.

Is traffic a big problem where you live? Increased cycling may be the answer. Where are the
best places to live and cycle? A new report lists the best bike-friendly
cities around the world.
Amsterdam is the bike capital of the world. There's an extensive
network of safe, fast and comfortable cycle routes. Copenhagen is a
city where 32% of workers cycle to work because it's fast and easy.
Berlin is another European city that's great for cycling. The city has about 80 kilometers of bike
lanes ( 车道 ), and 50 kilometers of pavement paths.

It's a bicycle service that allows users to take bicycles from any of the 100 stations spread around
the city. Later, they can leave them at any other bike station inside the urban area of the city. The
city has created a "green ring" that surrounds the city area of Barcelona with a bike path. There
are 3,250 parking spaces for bikes at street and it is also building a new underground car park for
The UK has its cycle-friendly cities too. Bristol is the birthplace of the cycle-route charity
which was formed 30 years ago. One of their projects was turning an old rail line between Bristol
and Bath into a bike route. Other bike-friendly cities in the UK include Cambridge and York.
Cambridge is an old city but has still managed to build good cycle systems and services.
Bicycle is a most popular transportation in China. Beijing can be one of the best bike-friendly
cities in China. There are many riding routes in Beijing for outdoor-lovers to explore. Cyclists can
get close enough to experience the history and culture of Beijing, including the Forbidden City,
Drum Tower, the Water Cube, the Bird's Nest, Hutong etc.
