Directions: Read the following passage. Complete the diagram by using the information from the passage.Write NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS for each answer. There are two types of school in England. State-run schools are paid for by the government, so are free to attend. Independent Schools are private, which means you have to pay to attend. The school day usually starts at 9 in the morning and finishes around 4, with breaks for lunch of course! In many schools, you have to wear a uniform too. Children start school when they are 5 years old. This is called primary school, and lasts until the child is 11 when he or she will go on to senior school. Secondary school is compulsory from 11 until 16 years of age. At 16, students take national examinations called GCSE’s. After this, students can stay at school for another 2 years and take A Level examinations. These examinations are necessary if they want to go on to university at
  18. Some universities start in September, but others begin in October. Courses normally last 3 years, but some, such as languages, engineering or medicine, can take much longer to complete. Students usually go to university in a different town, so need to get used to living alone, paying bills and washing their own clothes! For many, this is a difficult time, but everyone soon becomes used to it! Universities in Britain used to be free, but many students now have to pay for part of their course. Similarly, students used to receive a grant ? money from the government in order to live. Nowadays, they have to borrow money from banks or the government, called a student loan, or take part-time jobs. Either way, it can be difficult and many students have money problems.

On school days, students get out of bed at 7 a.m. They wash their faces and eat breakfast. The simplest breakfast is a bowl of dried cereal (麦片) with fruit and milk. Then they dress, brush their teeth, comb(梳理)hair, put their books in a backpack, and go to school. Nearly all students walk or take a yellow school bus. Very few ride bicycles. When they arrive at 8:30 a.m., they meet their friends and talk about their interesting things. At noon or 12 o’clock, the students eat lunch at school. The usual lunch must have some meat, vegetable, fruit, bread, and a drink. However, students prefer hot dogs and hamburgers. American children like to have a small piece of cake after the meal. Students do not have a short sleep in the afternoon. After lunch, they go to the schoolrooms until 3 o’clock. They take classes for six hours each day and then return home. Parents allow their children to play or watch TV until supper at 6 a.m. After supper, they do their homework. Sometimes there is a family activity. Children can be with both parents after dinner. On the weekend, there are two days for activities. Students will spend Saturday shopping with their friends or take a four-hour trip with their family to visit Grandparents or go to a park for a picnic. On Sunday, most families go to church in the morning and have a large dinner at 1 p.m. Often, friends or grandparents will join the family. It is a good way to end the week for parents and children before the next week when school and work begin again.
  76. What is the simplest breakfast like? (Not more than 12 words.) It is a bowl of dried cereal (麦片) with fruit and milk.
  77. How do American students often go to school?( Not more than 8 words.) By walking or taking a school bus.

  79. What’s the purpose of the writer’s writing this passage? ( Not more than 10 words.) To introduce the school life in the US to readers.
