Module 1 When I arrived, it was early morning and it was raining. I got of the car, went a gate and walked a path. In the east, the sky was light, but the path, it was still very . I knew it was , but there was to see. After about a kilometer, a stranger in front of me. “Am I going the way?” I asked. He knew I was going. “yes,” he replied, “you’ll get there five minutes.” Finally, I came to some rock, and . I looked carefully them, but it was still too dark to see . Suddenly, the clouds and the rain stopped. The sun behind me and the rocks. I saw that the ground fell and down a river, far below me. I was on the of the Grand Canyon, one of the of the natural world. I looked down to the Colorado River about 2,000 metres me. If you put the three tallest in the world at the of the canyon, they still won’t the top. Then I looked to the other side of the canyon. How far is it? It’s 20 kilometres, maybe more. Finally, I looked to my left and to my right, and on both sides the canyon into the distance...over 400 kilometres long. The Grand Canyon is not just big. It’s huge! That morning on the of the canyon, I asked a question. It’ s not “how deep is it? ” or “how wide is it? ”or “how long is it? ” but “Is the Grand Canyon the greatest wonder in the natural world? ” I know the answer. But what do you think? Module 2 My favourite great book is the adventures of tom sawyer by mark twain. Tom lives his aunt Polly in the streets of St Petersburg, Missouri. He’s a and clever young boy, and he finds himself in many exciting . He runs away with his two friends, Huck Finn and Joe, to an in the middle of the Mississippi River for days. With Huck he goes for , with Becky he gets lost in a , and finally, they find a box of . My favourite in the book is when everyone thinks Tom is dead. He to go to his own funeral. He and watches for a time, and then suddenly he . Everyone is surprised to see him but they’re also to see him . Tom is the of the story, but there are other important . Huck is an and everyone is afraid of him. Becky is pretty with hair, Joe is Tom’s best friend, and Injun Joe is the bad man of the story. The of the story are to do children up and becoming more serious. It how strangers are seen in small towns of America. Finally, it talks about , social rules and how people are
for bad behaviour. Why do I think Tom Sawyer is a great book? Mark Twain wrote the story in 1876, but it’s read and loved by people all over the world today. And it’s only a story, Twain wrote it in the everyday English of th the states of America in the 19 century, so it sounds very . Today it’s thought to be one of the greatest books in American . Go onread it! I know you’ll enjoy it, too. Module 3 For liu Xiang, life as a sporting hero has just begun. First of all, he’ll be invited to around the world. He’ll be chosen to China at the Olympic Games. He’s a of China’s international sporting success. And now that he’s well known all over the world, liu Xiang will also be asked to in advertisements and films, and to record music. But his coach Sun Haiping is sure that he trains . Liu Xiang will be by his coach how to be a great sportsman, and by his how to be a star. Liu Xiang is not an success. He was born in Shanghai on July 13, 1983 and many Olympic sports stars, he stared when he was very young. In Grade Four, he went to the Sports School of Putuo of Shanghai. Liu was at first to train as a high jumper. Then, in 1998,his at hurdling was noticed by his coach Sun Haiping. Liu Xiang was helped by a special . It was up in 2001 to help young sportsmen and sportswomen. Liu’s were recorded, and his performance was with the world’s best sports stars. Sun Haiping used the to change Liu’s training programme. In 2002 he his first international 110m hurdles in Switzerland, and the same year, a gold medal at the Asia Games in Korea. In 2004, Liu won the first Olympic gold medal in the samefor China in Athens, Greece. So what’s for Liu Xiang? Has he found out that there’s to life than training? Will he be encouraged to spend more time away form sport? No, Liu Xiang will go for more for China because he was trained for gold! Module 4 Every morning my father buys a newspaper his way to work. Every day I open my books in class and my lessons. Every evening my mother looks magazines at home. And every night, I look at the with photos of David Beckham and Yao Ming on my bedroom wall before I go to sleep. Can we life without paper or print? Paper was first about 2,000 years ago, and has been made of , th cotton, bamboo, and, the 19 century, of wood. People learned to
write words on paper to a book. But in those days, books could only be one at a time by hand. As a result, they were expensive and . And because there weren’t many books, people learned to read. Then printing was invented in China. The first books were made by ink against a block and holding the paper it. When printing was developed greatly at the of the 11th century, books could be more quickly and . As a result, more people learned to read. After that, knowledge and ideas quickly, in a way th can be compared with the of the Internet in the 20 century. But will books be in the future? Today information can be online, downloaded from the Internet rather than in books, and information can be kept on CD-ROMs or such as MP3 players. These machines are smaller and than books so that they can be carried very . Computers are already used in , and newspapers and magazines can already be read . So will books be by computers one day? No, I don’t think the Yao Ming poster on my bedroom wall will be replaced by a computer two metres high! Module 5 The most unusual museum in London is the Science Museum. In most museums, there’s no shouting and no running, and you aren’t to touch the exhibits. But the Science Museum is different...because it’s ! People talk about they can see and do there, and some of the are noisy as well. the Science Museum is fun and it’s a great way to learn about science because you can work things out and out ideas. When I visit the Science Museum, I go to the Launch Pad. This is my favourite room because you can do physics . For example, if you want to fill a bag with sand, you have to move a kind of truck on into the position. You can also learn how to make . I also go to the Rocket Show. You can learn how we travel into space and again. Then I go to the Human and Nature room. You can compare your speed animals there. You hear a noise and push a . If you aren’t fast , the lion you! I’m faster than all my friends, but the lion still catches me. There are also rooms transport, the environment and space , as well as maths, physics and chemistry. You can do a lot of things in this museum, but you have to obey some as well. For example, you mustn’t take photos of the in the museum. But you can buy of them in the museum shops. Above all, the Science Museum is free. That means you can in for a few minutes or you can stay as long as you it’s open every
day, from 10am to 6pm. So if you go to London, make sure you visit the Science Museum. It’s my favourite museum in the whole world. Module 6 Do you try to walk or ride a bike to school? Do you buy new clothes just because they are the fashions? Do you open a window instead of on air conditioning? Do you buy things produced instead of made abroad? Do you take you own cloth bag when instead of using plastic bags? Do you the waste before it away? We all need a healthy environment, but we produce waste every day and it harm to our environment. we are young, we can still do something to help. In fact, the simplest everyday activities can make a difference to the environment. Here are some ideas for you. Remember these three words: reduce, reuse and recycle. Reduce Reduce means “use less”. Don’t waste things. This saves money and pollution and waste into the environment. Before we buy something new, think whether it is necessary or maybe the old one will be just good! When we buy things, choose products if possible, and try not to buy too many things from . It may cost a lot of money to them to us. Reuse Reuse means “use again”. Use things for as long as . When we buy things, make sure that they a long time. We should look after them so that they will last, and we should them if we can instead of throwing them away and new ones. Don’t use a paper cup a paper bag. It’s better to use a china cup and a box because you can use them again. Recycle Recycle means “change things into something else”. Although it takes to change something into something else, it’s better than things away or burning them. Find out what can be recycled in your and take part in progremmes. We should also buy products from recycled , such as recycled paper, to help save trees. Module 7 I’m writing this letter to you from the centre of Australia. At the moment we’re staying near Uluru that’s the Aboriginal name Ayer Rock. On the first day, we took a helicopter over the rock, and I was surprised at how big it was:
  3.6 kilometres long and 348 metres high. The colours of the rock are fantastic, and at different of the day, people that have lived in Australia from the times,
and the ancient Aboriginal stories describe the that created the world. Uluru is a centre of Aboriginal . The Australians have many British and they’re like us in many ways. Their family life is to ours, and they enjoy the same food and . The food and drink that most Australians like are grapes, lamb, ham and wine that they make in the south of the country. They love all sports, but the games that they love the most are football, and rugby. Because most Australians live the coast, they love going to the beach, swimming and . Although it’s December, it’s summer over here. The sunshine is very bright, and near the the countryside is very green. There are lots of sheep in the and on the hills, but the is more like a desert, full of rocks and sand. Most Australians speak English, although they have some special such as “good day! ” And “ no worries, mate.” They mean “hello!” and “don’t worry about it. it’s not a problem!” The next day after we arrived at Uluru, we went on a camel ride. The camel that I rode had a bad , and I got very tired. Everyone else thought it was very funny that my camel kept down... Finally, this evening, we’re taking the plane back to Sydney and coming home. It’s been a fantastic trip! Module 8 We were very pleased the photo competition. Compared other years, we many more photos. Even though all of the photos are , we can’t give prizes to everyone. There are four , so read on to find out who the winners are. The person who won the prize the “Most Beautiful Nature” photography is fifteen-year-old Li Wei. Li took photos of the in Xiangshang Park. The park isn’t from his home, about 500 metres, and he knows it very well. The photo which we best in the “Historic China” group was by Zhao Min. Zhao is only 12 years old. Her photo is of Tian’anmen Square, the public square in the world. It’s 880 metres from north to south and 500 metres at the northern end. Her photo shows the size and beauty of the square perfectly. The best photo in the “Music” was taken by He Zhong. His photo of his this year’s best band Crazy Feet the singer, Becky Wang, and the band at a concert in Shenzhen. He Zhong to show the movement and the of this great new band, and the fun which their fans are . A of photos called the “Many Faces of Our City” which Beijing won the prize for the “Most Unusual” category. Three pupils at the same school worked on this . It photos of different parts
