When Andrew was a student in high school, his teacher asked him to write a passage about what he wanted to do when he grew up. That night he thought hard and wrote a seven-page passage about his dream of having a horse ranch (牧场). And he even drew a picture of a 200-acre (英亩) ranch. The next day he gave it to his teacher.
Two days later he got his passage back. On the first page was a large F with some words: “Please see me after class.”
Andrew went to see his teacher after class and asked, “Why did I get an F?”
The teacher said, “You have no money. Your parents have no money. Having a horse ranch needs a lot of money. You have to buy the land (土地). You have to buy the horses. There’s no ade.”
Andrew went back home and thought about it for a long time. The next day he gave the same passage, making no changes at all. He said to his teacher, “You can keep the F and I’ll keep my dream.”

Swimming and English Learning
Can you swim? Do you like swimming? Yes? Well, how can you learn to swim? I think the
九年级英语试卷 第 7 页 （共 11 页）
best way is to go into the water and learn. I’m afraid you’ll never learn to swim just by reading books about swimming or looking at others swimming. It’s the same as the English study. We must practice, practice and practice.
Listening and speaking are very important for beginners. The children in English-speaking countries first listen to others. Then they try to imitate(模仿) and speak. We can listen to English programs on radio. You may just understand a few words. It doesn’t matter. Just be relaxed, try to get the main topics(论题，话题), then the main ideas, then the main sentences, then the key words, then the full meaning. As for speaking, speak as much as you can.
Reading and writing are more important for school students. First we must choose the books we’re interested in. A lot of reading will improve your language sense(语感). This is the most important.
Keep writing English diaries. We can also write English articles. You may even post them to English magazines. Don’t be afraid of failure(失败). Failure is the mother of success.
Easier said than done. Well, let’s do more practice from now on. I’m sure you’ll learn English well in this way.

Recently I have a discussion about the ways to learn English better with David. In his opinion, the best ways are reading English newspapers and talking with friends. He also believes that sometimes seeing English movies is a good idea.
I quite agree with him. However, I think we can surf on the Internet to find a lot of information in English to read. Besides, we can find a pen pal from an English-speaking country so that we can get to know something about his or her country. And you can practice writing every day. Don't be afraid of making mistakes. Finally, I think it’s necessary to learn some English grammar and do some exercises.
1. I am allowed to watch TV at home, but not allowed to play computer games.
2. Danny’s father works in No. 2 Hospital. He is a famous doctor.
3. I often help my mother cook meals at home when I am free.
4. I was playing volleyball when you played basketball yesterday afternoon.
5. If I were you, I would buy her a scarf.

Do you know anything about the history of the ball? The first thing that humans invented for sports is the ball. In ancient Egypt, an African country, throwing stones was the children’s favorite game. But stones could hurt people easily. In order to have something less dangerous to throw, the local people made the first ball.
At first, balls were made of grass or leaves tied together by rope. Later on they were made of pieces of animals’ skin in which light soft things were filled. Soon, people in ancient Egypt developed a number of ball games, and each of them had its own set of rules. Perhaps they played with the balls more for training than for fun. They thought the ball game was a useful way to train young people.
