Understanding body language can lead to closer relationships. Noticing the signals that people send out with their body language and being able to effectively read them is a very useful skill.

Watch for crying. Usually crying is considered a sign of sadness, but crying can also be an expression of happiness. 1. Thus, when judging crying, you’ll need to look for other signals to determine the real meaning of the crying.

Look for signs of anger. Signs of anger include v-shaped eyebrows (眉毛), and wide eyes.2. Arms tightly crossed over the other is a common sign that the person is angry and is closing himself off to you.

3. Studies have found that when people are engaged in an interesting conversation, their eyes remain focused on their partner's face about 80% of the time.

Look for expressions of embarrassment. Embarrassment can be signaled by turning the eyes or head away, and forcing smiles. If someone looks down at the floor a lot, they are probably shy, or embarrassed.4. People are often thinking and feeling unpleasant emotions when they are in the process of staring at the ground.

Notice any sense of pride. People express pride by showing a small smile, moving their head backward, and putting their hands behind their backs.

As a general rule, people are best at reading facial expressions, and then body movements, and, finally, personal space and touch.

5. People are generally better at reading body movements that are pleasant rather than unpleasant. One study finds that individuals are better at accurately interpreting (領會) happiness, and excitement, compared to anger, sadness, and fear.

A. Read interest from eyes.

B. Look for signals of anxiety.

C. However, different body movements have different meanings.

D. Down-turned mouth is also a sign of being angry.

E. People also tend to look down when they are upset.

F. Crying can also come about through laughter and humor.

G. However, not all body movements are equally easy to understand.


We all need to eat. So, meals could be a chance to stop what we’re doing and spend time with the people in our lives. A recent study from a team of South Korea suggests that eating together has many good effects on children and teenagers while frequently eating alone may lead to poor eating habits and poor food choices. People who eat alone more than twice a week have a greater risk of developing high blood pressure.

There are benefits of family dinners on children and teenagers.

In 2014, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) looked at data from nearly three-quarters of the world’s countries. Among its findings is the fact that students who share a main meal with their families are less likely to hate school. Children who eat a main meal with their families are also less likely to take drugs (毒品).

In the report, titled “The Importance of Family Dinners (VIII),’’ researchers say that teens who have frequent family dinners are more likely to say their parents know a lot about what’s going on in their lives.

Another study from the University of Montreal finds that children who eat with their families experience long-term physical and mental health benefits. These children are physically in better shape and drink fewer sugary soft drinks. These children also seem to have better social skills and are less violent.

One of the researchers, Pagani, involved in this study is a professor at the university. She says that mealtimes with parents possibly provide young children with firsthand social events, which helps them have better communication skills.

1.Why is eating meals alone frequently bad for people’s health?

A. Because people will get a chance to make friends.

B. Because people will have a risk of heart attack.

C. Because people will show no interest in food.

D. Because people will develop poor eating habits.

2.What’s the topic of the passage?

A. Ways to eat together more.

B. Benefits of eating together.

C. Chances to spend time with people.

D. Risks of developing high blood pressure.

3.What’s the advantage of family dinners for children?

A. They could enjoy sweet, and hard drinks.

B. They perform better in social activities.

C. They feel their parents know more about their studies.

D. They experience long-term physical and mental illness.

4.What’s Pagani’s attitude to eating family meals together?

A. Supportive.??? B. Uninterested.??? C. Worried.??? D. Doubtful.

In fifth grade, my backpack was stolen from my dad’s car, which had my binder (活頁夾) with a few valuable stories that I have been working on for quite a while. I was very devastated. Then I decided to go to school with absolutely nothing.

My 5th grade teacher, Miss Taylor, was really sweet, understanding and kind to me. She gave me an extra binder that she had, and to help personalize it, she got out a piece of paper, and started writing my name in a cool letter style. I was deeply moved by what she had done for me that day.

But here’s something even better. Later that same day, Miss Taylor had gotten a call from the office and told me exactly this “Zoe, A wonder has happened! Someone found your binder!” And I ran down to the office, and got my binder. It was really packed full, because the person that had found it had collected all written works and put them inside of my binder. When I opened it, an envelope fell out. On the back of the envelope was “I’m sorry all your things got stolen, but I hope this helps.” I opened the envelope and it had $20 in it.

If something bad happens or if life lets you down sometimes, there are always lots of people out there that are kind, and can bring back faith and hope to humanity.

How do you get a man to do his share of the housework? If you are like most women, you’ve faced this question the hard way.

A man will enjoy a clean, orderly house, but he usually won’t make the effort to clean or organise it. This doesn’t mean that a woman has to do all the housework; she may have to manage many of the household duties, and request her partner’s participation. A woman can often say that men and women should take equal responsibility for housework.

Very few men are raised to be fully responsible for housework, and many men look on housework as women’s work. On the other hand, most men will readily work around the yard, make repairs and complete projects on weekends or evenings, and it’s important that you give your man appreciation for those things, too. Most men will take on a little additional housework around the house if asked politely. They are even more likely to do housework if they can choose what they want to do, and do it without being monitored.

Here’s the key: men want to feel that they are doing housework either because they want to do a task, or because they simply want to please their women. Men are much less likely to take on household tasks they consider uninteresting and unimportant. In other words, men are likely to do a household task just for the good of the house.

1.The passage is mainly about how to _______.

A. get men to take on some housework??? B. get men to serve their families

C. praise men’s housework??? D. make men do all the housework

2.Accordin g to the passage, a man _______.

A. is willing to do housework

B. likes to be told to do housework

C. is taught to be responsible for housework from childhood

D. likes a clean house but doesn’t make efforts to clean it

3.In order to get men to do some housework, women should often_______.

A. order them to do their share??? B. ask them to do some housework politely

C. blame men’s laziness??? D. monitor men’s work

4.According to the passage, the underlined sentence in the last paragraph means that men wo n’t ____.

A. work without any payment??? B. do unimportant household tasks

C. do housework without women’s praise??? D. please their wives


Rush hour traffic is a problem in many big cities around the world. Commuters (上下班者) rush to and from their jobs in cars, buses, subways, trains, and even on bicycles. Large cities in the United States have two rush hours –– one in the morning and one in the evening. But in cities in other parts of the world, there are four rush hours. In Athens and Rome, for example, many workers go home for lunch and a nap. After this midday break, they rush back to their jobs and work for a few more hours.

In Tokyo, there’s a big rush hour underground. Most of the people in Tokyo take the subways. The trains are very crowded. Subway employees called packers wear white gloves and help pack the commuters into the trains when the doors close. They make sure that all purses, briefcases, clothes, and hands are inside the trains.

In Seoul, many commuters prefer to take taxis to get to work. To hail a cab,many people stand at crossroads and raise two fingers. This means they’ll pay the cab driver double the usual fare. Some people even raise three fingers! They’ll pay three times the normal rate.

Streets in Rome are very crowded with automobiles and mopeds (摩托自行車) during rush hours. The city can’t make its streets wider, and it can’t build new highways, because it doesn’t want to disturb the many historic sites in the city, such as the Forum and the Coliseum. It took the city fifteen years to construct a new subway system. Construction had to stop every time workers found old artifacts and discovered places of interest to archaeologists (考古學家).

In many big cities, there are special lanes on highways for carpools. These are groups of three or more people who drive to and from work together. They share the costs of gas and parking and take turns driving into the city.

Much of today’s science of physics is based on Newton’s discovery of the three laws of motion and his theory of gravity ( 地球引力). Newton said, “If I saw further than other men, it was because I stood on the shoulders of giants.” One was the great Italian scientist, Galileo. Another was the Polish scientist Nicholas Copernicus, who had begun a scientific revolution. It led to a completely new understanding of how the universe worked. Galileo continued and expanded the work of Copernicus. Newton built on the ideas of these two scientists and others. He found and proved the answers for which they searched.

Issac Newton was born in Woolsthorpe, England, on December 25th, 1642. He was born early and no one expected him to survive. He lived until he was 84. His father died before he was born. His mother married again. He lived with his grandma on the family farm.

As a boy, he liked to make things. He also decided to find a different way to measure the speed of the wind. On a windy day, he measured how far he could jump with the wind at his back. Then he measured how far he could jump with the wind in his face. From the difference between the two jumps, he made his own measure of the strength of the wind. Strangely, Newton became a much better student after a boy kicked him in the stomach. The boy was one of the best of the students? in the school. Newton decided to get even with him by getting higher marks than the boy kicking him. Newton became the top student at the school very soon.

1.As a boy, what was Newton like?

A. He was too weak to survive.

B. He was determined to study math.

C. He liked to find out new ways to solve problems.

D. He tended to stud y math on the family farm.

2.We can know from the text that the theories of Newton, Galileo, and Copernicus focus on ____.

A. how the universe works??? B. the three laws of motion

C. a scientific revolution??? D. the theory of gravity

3.Which of the following can be the best title for the passage?

A. One of the history’s greatest scientists.

B. Issac Newton---History’s greatest scientist.

C. One of the world’s greatest scientists, Issac Newton.

D. Issac Newton and his laws.


I was reading these interesting stories behind a group of great logos in the world. Personally Nike is my favorite one – it’s so simple. And I liked the stories behind them, which made me forget all other things. McDonald’s, Apple, Mercedes Benz and Adidas own great logos as well, and they are among my favorites.


In the Greek myth, Nike is the goddess of victory and the source of inspiration for soldiers. This logo represents the wing in th e famous statue of the Greek goddess. Nike’s logo was designed by Carolyn Davidson in 1971 for $ 35, and was registered as a trademark in 1995.


The logo was designed in 1962 by Jim Schindler to resemble the archshaped (拱形的) signs on the side of the company’s then walk-up hamburger stand. Later on, the two golden arches were combined together to form the M. The McDonald’s name was added to the logo in 1968.


There are different stories behind Apple’s logo. The first logo was a reference to the religious story of Adam and Eve, in which the apple represented the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. One year later, the second logo was designed in 1977 by Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, and it described Sir Isaac Newton sitting under an apple tree. This logo didn’t stay long. One year later it was replaced almost immediately by graphic designer Rob Janoff’s “rainbow apple”, a rainbow-colored silhouette (輪廓) of an apple with a bite taken out of it. And then the rainbow-colored apple was replaced by the one-colored logo in 1998. It has not been changed so far.

Mercedes Benz

The Mercedes Benz logo, which was originally created by Gottlieb Daimler in 1909, consists of a simple description of a three-pointed star that represents its rule of the land, the sea and the air. The company was founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach. Mercedes is the name of Maybach’s elder daughter, while Benz came as a result of a combination with Benz, Cie and DMG in 1926.


The Adidas logo, which was created by the founder of the company Adi Dassler, represents mountains, pointing towards the challenges that are seen ahead and goals that can be achieved. The logo was used for the first time in 1967.

1.What does the author think of the stories of the great logos?

A. They are attractive.??? B. They are practical.

C. They are boring.??? D. They are out of date.

2.What does Nike’s logo stand for?

A. The statue of the Greek goddess.??? B. The wing of the Greek goddess.

C. The goddess of victory.??? D. The source of inspiration for soldiers.

3.We can learn that Apple’s present logo is _______.

A. Newton’s sitting under? an apple tree??? B. the rainbow-colored bitten apple

C. the religious story of Adam and Eve??? D. a bitten apple with only one color

4.Which of the following time orders describes the births of the great logos?

A. McDonald’s – Apple – Nike – Mercedes Benz.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Good afternoon! Welcome to this year's English speech competition._________________________________







That’s all! Thank you!



Moksh Jawa, 16, a student in the second year at Washington High School in the US, has already become a legend among students. “Why not?” might be his favorite question to ask.

His high school didn’t teach coding. As a sophomore in this school, he developed his own online course and helped his classmates get through it while a student in higher grades enen couldn’t do like him.

Everything he did came from his own interest. “I just fell in love with computer science,” Jawa said. Along the way, he lit a fire of curiosity and passion among classmates to learn coding too.

“All of my friends, especially the girls, were really, really afraid of computer science,” he said. But the subject and exam weren’t things to be feared, he said. “Computer science is all about logic (邏輯), not about how smart you are.”

To make his knowledge available online, Jawa set about creating his own online course, with easy-to-follow lessons.

The course has so far attracted 3,200 students across the US and in 120 countries and regions, including China, Ukraine and Algeria. It shows, Jawa said, the huge need for coding lessons.

When video lecturing, “I deliver it like I’m talking from one high school student to another,” Jawa said. “It’s always great to make it as clear and fun as possible, and to try to keep my voice as energetic as possible.”

He also does that, when teaching members of the computer science club he founded at his high school.

“His tutorials (輔導) were great,” said junior Taj Shaik, the club’s co-president, who took the whole course last year. “I’m definitely one of the early adopters of Moksh.”

“He’s pretty amazing,” said Bob Moran, principal of Washington High School, who saw him lead the club. “He was just a fantastic teacher – clear, organized and entertaining. When a student got the right answer, he would throw them a piece of candy.”

Rather than rolling your eyes when it’s your turn to bow your head and give thanks, try being grateful. The result just might be good for you, from improving your feeling to your relationships. If you don’t want to voice your gratitude, writing a letter may work, according to various studies by Steve Toepfer of Kent State University and his colleagues.

Toepfer and his colleagues had 219 students with an average age of 25 fill out questionnaires(問卷)to measure their happiness. They returned to the lab to fill out the survey three more times, with each visit about a week apart. Some of the students wrote a letter of gratitude each time they returned to the lab, while the control group didn’t write about being thankful.

“The letter writers were instructed to write a letter of gratitude to anyone they wanted, however, the letter couldn’t be a‘thank you’note for a gift,” Toepfer said. “The participants had to write about something that was important to them.”

The results showed that their levels of happiness and life satisfaction improved after each letter they wrote. In addition, depressive symptoms decreased over time with the letter writing.

Gratitude doesn’t just cheer you up—it can improve your health and energy levels as well. A 2007 study conducted by researchers found that organ-transplant(器官移植) receivers who kept “gratitude journals” listing five things or people that they were grateful for each day scored better on measures of general health, and mental health than those who only made routine notes about their days.

A successful relationship may depend on your gratitude. Research reported in 2011 looking at more than 65 couples who were in satisfying relationships showed that each couple’s relationship quality corresponded with one partner’s feelings of gratitude. Researchers show that one partner expressed feelings of gratitude; both partners experienced a positive emotional response.
