    We spent a day in the country and picked a lot of flowers. Our car was full of flowers inside! On the way home we had to stop at traffic lights , and there my wife saw the bookshelf.
  It stood outside a furniture (家具)shop. "Buy it," she said at once. "We'll carry it home on the roof-rack (车顶架) . I've always wanted one like that . "
  What could I do? Ten minutes later I was twenty dollars poorer, and the bookshelf was tied on to the roof-rack. It was tall and narrow, quite heavy too .
  As it was getting darker, I drove slowly . Other drivers seemed more polite than usual that evening. The police even stopped traffic to let us through . Carrying furniture was a good idea.
  After a time my wife said, "There's a long line of cars behind . Why don't they overtake (超车) ?"
  Just at that time a police car did overtake. The two officers (警官)inside looked at us seriously when they went past . But then , with a kind smile they asked us to follow their car through the busy traffic. The police car stopped at our village church (教堂) . One of the offices came to me.
  "Right, sir, " he said. "Do you need any more help now?"
  I didn't quite understand . "Thanks, officer, " I said . "You've been very kind. I lived just down the road. "
  He was looking at our things: first at the flowers, then at the bookshelf. "Well, Well, " he said and laughed . "It's a bookshelf you've got there ! We thought it was-er, something else . "
  My wife began to laugh . Suddenly I understood why the police drove here .
  I smiled at the officer. "Yes, it's a bookshelf, but thanks again." I drove home as fast as I could .

  Look at the picture. It's a small room. We can see Betty in it. There is a bed and a desk in her room. What's on the wall? It's a map of England. We can see a photo (照片) near the map. It's Betty's photo. We can see a clock on the table. There are some flowers near it. Is her black cat on the bed? No, it's her hat. Where's her bag? It's on the bed, too.
1. Whose (谁的) room is it?  2. Is the room big or small?  
3. What's on the wall?       4. Where are the flowers?  
5. What colour is Betty's hat?  
参考答案
  解答:阅读题对于初学者来说略有困难。学生希望直接从文章中找到答案。有的题可以但有的题却不能。这篇文章介绍的是一幅画。没有提到房间是Betty的,但所介绍的物品与她有关,故房间是Betty的。
  1、答案为It's Betty's.
  2、文章的第二句表明房间小,故答案为It's small.
  3、墙上除了有英国地图外,旁边还有一张照片,故答案为There is a map of England and a photo.
  4、文章没有说花在桌子上,但钟在桌子上,花在它的旁边,当然花在桌子上,故答案为They're on the table.
  5、文章也没讲Betty的帽子是什么颜色,但把床上的帽子误认为黑色的猫。由此可见她的帽子是黑色的,故答案为It's black.

    When people meet each other for the first time in Britain, they say “How do you do?”and shake hands(握手). Usually they do not shake hands when they just meet or say goodbye. But they shake hands after they haven’t met for a long time or when they will be away from each other for a long time.
  Last year a group of German students went to England for a holiday. Their teacher told them that the English people hardly shake hands. So when they met their English friends at the station, they kept their hands behind their backs. The English students had learned that the Germans shake hands as often as possible, so they put their hands in front and got ready to shake hands with them. It made both of them laugh.

  Last year a group of German students went to England for a holiday. Their teacher told them that the English people hardly shake hands. So when they met their English friends at the station, they kept their hands behind their backs. The English students had learned that the Germans shake hands as often as possible, so they put their hands in front and got ready to shake hands with them. It made both of them laugh.

  The salmon(大麻哈鱼) is a very strange fish.  It is born in a river.  But the young salmon takes 2 years to swim down the rivers towards the Pacific Ocean.  For another 2 years it lives in the sea and becomes full grown.  Then it returns to the river where it was born.
  A grown-up  salmon weighs about 25 pounds and is nearly three feet long.  The female salmon will not lay the eggs(产卵) in the Pacific Ocean.  When it is almost time to lay them, both male and female salmon begin a great journey.  Each salmon is heading for the river where it was born.  A salmon may be a thousand miles from where its life began, yet it is able to return to that place.
  As the salmon swim, larger fish attack(袭击) them.  The salmon are food for some other fish. Some are caught by fishermen.  The salmon that are left keep swimming.
  After they enter the rivers, they head upstream(向上游).  If rocks and waterfalls(瀑布) are in their way, the salmon leap(跳) over them.  A salmon can leap up a fall as high as ten feet.  It leaps by swimming at full speed under water, then rising to the surface.  Almost the whole body of a salmon is made of muscle(肌肉).  It is these powerful muscles that make the salmon fit for fast swimming, turning quickly, and leaping high out of the water.

The weather is getting hotter. You are thirsty playing basketball or riding home from school. A cold drink may  be just the thing. But be careful what you are drinking. Something that looks cool may not be good for your health.
There are plenty of "energy drinks" on the market. Most of them have beautiful colors and cool names. The lists on them tell you they are helpful to your health. Sounds great!   
But after a careful check you may find that most energy drinks have lots of caffeine (咖啡因) in them. These drinks are especially aimed at young people, students, busy people and sports players. Makers sometimes say their drinks make you better at sports and can keep you awake. But be careful not to drink too much.
Caffeine makes your heart beat fast. Because of this, the International Olympic Committee has limited( 限制) its use. Caffeine in most energy drinks is at least as strong as that in a cup of coffee or tea. Possible health dangers have something to do with energy drinks. Just one box of energy drink can make you nervous, have difficulty sleeping and can even cause heart problems. Scientists say that teenagers should be discouraged from taking drinks with a lot of caffeine in them.

As a child, I was really afraid of the dark and of getting lost. These fears were very real and caused me some uncomfortable moments.
Maybe it was the strange way things looked and sounded in my own room at night that scared me so much. There was never complete darkness, but always a streetlight or passing
car lights, which made clothes on the back of a chair take on the shape of a wild animal. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw the curtains(窗帘) seem to move when there was no wind. A very low sound in the floor would seem a hundred times louder than in the day. My imagination (想象) would run wild, and my heart would beat fast. I would lie very still so that the "enemy(敌人) " would not discover me.
Another of my childhood fears was that I would get lost, especially on the way home from school. Every morning I got on the school bus right near my home. That was no problem. After school, though, when all the buses were lined up along the street, I was afraid that I would get in the wrong one and be taken to some other strange places. On school or family trips to a park or a museum, I wouldn't let the leaders out of my sight.
Perhaps one of the worst fears of all I had as a child was that of not being liked or accepted by others. Being popular was so important to me then, and the fear of not being liked was a serious one.
One of the processes(过程) growing up is being able to realize and overcome our fears. Understanding the things that scared us as children helps us achieve greater success later in life.
(   )11. The author had _________kind(s) of fears when she was a child.
A. one B. two C. three D. none
(   )12. _________ would scare the author at night.
A. Streetlight and car lights               B. Wild animals and enemies
C. Moving curtains and wind               D. Strange sights and sounds
(   )13. When she went to some other places, she would _________.
A. walk away without others   B. take a bus by herself
C. follow others closely     D. make sure not to take a wrong bus
(   )14. Which of the following would be possibly true when she was a child?
A. She was usually popular among people.  B. She was always the leader of the others.
C. She always' got poor grades.  D. She was not at all liked by others.
(   )15. The underlined word "overcome" means "_________" in Chinese.
A. 接受    B. 忍受 C. 信服   D. 克服

Every time I heard the other students talking and laughing, I felt my heart break. I couldn’t talk with anyone about my problems.
    Then one day, when my classmates were talking happily with their friends, I was sitting at my desk unhappily as usual. At that moment, a boy entered the classroom. I didn’t know who he was. He passed by me and then turned back. He looked at me, with a smile.

Almost every day, we discuss the topic of health, especially for kids. But what is health? “Health” means eating well, getting enough exercise, and having a healthy weight. Let’s read the following rules. They can help you stay healthy.
(1). Eat a variety of food, especially fruit and vegetables. We all know that eating fruit and vegetables can help us stay healthy, but many of us only eat our favorite food. Remember that we can only get the nutrition (营养) we need by eating different kinds of food, especially fruit and vegetables.
(2). Drink water and milk most often. Everyone knows that water is important. Besides that, kids need plenty of calcium (钙) to grow strong bones, and milk is rich in it.

Sugar only includes calories (热量), not important nutrition.
(3). Listen to your body. When you are eating, notice how your body feels. When your stomach feels comfortably full, stop eating. Eating too much makes you feel uncomfortable. If you do it too often, it can make you unhealthy and fat.
(4). Limit screen time. What’s screen time? It’s the amount of time you spend watching TV, movies and playing computer games. The more time you spend on these sitting-down activities, the less time you spend playing sports, like basketball, and doing other activities like riding and swimming.

For most people, the word “fashion” means “clothes”. But people may ask the question, “What clothes are in fashion?” And they use the adjective “fashionable” in the same way:
    “She was wearing a fashionable coat. His shirt was really a fashionable colour.”
    But of course there are fashions in many things, not only in clothes. There are fashions in holidays, in restaurants, in films and books. There are even fashions in school subjects, jobs…and in languages.
    Fashions change as time goes. If you look at pictures of people or things from the past, you will see that fashions have always changed. An English house of 1750 was different from one of 1650. A fashionable man in 1780 looked very different from his grandson in 1860.
    Today fashions change very quickly. Some of this is natural. We hear about things much more quickly than in the past. Newspaper, radios, telephones and television send information from one country to another in a few hours.
New fashions mean that people will buy new things, so you see there is money in fashion.
(   )1. From this passage we know that “fashion” means ______.
     A. clothes B. many things
C. most of the popular things D. everything
(   )2. Which of the following things is fashionable today?

Happiness is important for everyone. Most people want to be happy but few know how to find happiness. Money and success don’t bring lasting happiness. Happiness depends on ourselves. In other words, we make our own happiness.
Some people believe that if they are wealthy, they will be able to do anything they want, which means happiness. On the other hand, some people believe that holding a high position in the government is happiness. In this way, you have not only money, but also many other things which can’t be bought by money. However, other people believe that having lots of money is not happiness, nor is holding a high position in the government. These people value(重视) their beliefs, or their intelligence, or their health. They think these can make them happy.
Here are a few ways to help you be happier.
The first secret of happiness is to enjoy the simple things in life. Too often, we spend so much time thinking about the future, for example, getting into college or getting a good job, that we don’t enjoy the present. You should enjoy life’s simple pleasures, such as reading a good book, listening to your favorite music, or spending time with close friends. People who have close friends usually enjoy happier and healthier lives.
The second secret of happiness is to be active. Many people go dancing or play sports. People can forget about their problems and only think about the activities.
Finally, many people find happiness in helping others. According to studies, people feel good when they volunteer their time to do many meaningful things for other people. If you want to feel happier, do something nice for someone. You can help a friend with his or her studies, go shopping to get food for an old neighbor, or simply help around the house.
Now maybe you know how to find happiness!
