It's been two months since I came to England. I have settled down and started to like the life here. I have made several new friends. They are from different countries: Japan, Germany, and Russia. English is the only language we can use for communication. These friends are my classmates, and we also live in the same house. So we are 18 all day studying, playing basketball and going shopping. It's very interesting to go to the supermarket. People from different countries enjoy different foods. Some of the foods are very 19 to me.
Could you come to England for a vacation this summer? You would love to meet my new friends.
In 1999, there were about 2,482 traffic accidents in Taiwan. Most of the accidents happened because 20 . For example, some drivers drove too fast. Some drivers drank too much wine or beer before they got into the car. And some drivers never tried to stop when 21.
It is convenient to drive a car. But it also can be dangerous. Accidents can be avoided only when people drive carefully. Everyone should remember 22.
Alice: Can you go with me to Jill's bookstore? I need a notebook.
Ben: Now? It's too early. Today's Sunday. There is still one hour before it opens.
Alice: Oh! I forgot. Well, then, let's go to Hilda's. I'm a little hungry.
Ben: It's expensive to eat out. Why not stay for lunch? My mom is making hamburgers and fries.
Alice: Good idea. I love hamburgers and fries.
Read the records of the four baseball teams and answer the questions.
It is fun and exciting to visit different countries and meet different people. You can see beautiful mountains and seas. You can learn different ways of living and doing things. You can try many kinds of foods. You can buy special presents for yourself and your friends.
It is also a good way to learn a foreign language because you can learn the language by using it. You can practice speaking English when visiting America or England. Or you can practice speaking French in France or German in Germany.
Have you ever taken a trip to a foreign country? Think about it for your next vacation!
Flower Town in July
Summer is the most beautiful season in Flower Town. In the morning, take a walk in Vendo Park between First Street and Third Street. If you enjoy reading, there is a bookstore in the park.
For lunch, have delicious Hamburger Special in Googie’s. You can walk there from the park. It is just on the corner of Mension Road and Third Street.
When the weather gets hotter in the afternoon, go to the swimming pool on Fourth Street. It is next to Cage’s Café.
In the evening, movie fans move to Second Street. David Stone Theater has all kinds of movies!
I am really worried about my daughter, Shirley. I don't know why, but she always thinks she is too heavy. She eats only a little rice and some vegetables. She refuses fish, beef and pork. "Cake" and "desert" are taboo words to her.
The problem is that she is NOT heavy at all. In fact, the doctor says she is skinny. But she still believes being thinner will make her prettier. I'm afraid she will get sick before she becomes any "prettier."
Mrs. Kao couldn't sleep well. How could she? Winnie said she would be home before eleven, but it was almost twelve. Where was she? Mrs. Kao called her on her cell phone. No one answered. She got out of bed, put on a jacket, and went to the living room.
Terry walked out of his room and asked, “What's wrong, Mom? Oh, is Dad coming home tonight?” “No. Tomorrow. I'm waiting for your sister.” Terry went back to his room and studied. He had a very important exam the next day.
“Terry is a good boy,” Mrs. Kao thought. “He's three years younger, but I seldom need to worry about him.”
Ten minutes later, the telephone rang. “I'm so happy to hear your voice. Where are you? …I'm happy that you called. No, don't take the taxi. Stay at the door of the theater with Maggie. I'll come and drive you and Maggie home. Don't worry. I'll be there in about ten minutes.” Mrs. Kao took the car key and went out.
