I then picked up the plates and walked around the counter to the that the men had chosen as a resting place. I put the plates on the table and laid my hand on the blue-eyed gentleman’s hand. He looked up at me, with tears in his eyes, and said, “Thank you.”

In front of my daughter, Shelly, was a bowl filled with cabbage. She hated cabbage. She only sat there in silence with tears in her eyes.
“Shelly, my dear, why don’t you eat a little? If not, your mum will shout at us.”
Shelly didn’t feel happy. “OK, dad. I will eat, just a little.” Then Shelly said, “Dad, if I eat it all, will you give me what I want?”
Slowly she began to eat. It took her almost half an hour to finish all the food in the bowl. Then she came up to me and said, “Dad, I want to have my hair cut off!”
“Shelly, why don’t you ask for something else? If we see your head like that, we’ll feel very sad,” I said.
“But Dad, you promised! Now you’re going back on your words. ”
I had to keep my promise. Shelly had all her hair cut off. She smiled. On Monday morning, I took Shelly to school. Just when I arrived, a boy got out of a car and shouted, “Shelly, please wait for me!”
Guess what? The boy had no hair, either.
“Sir, your daughter is great!” a man got out of the car and said, “This boy is my son, Harish. He has cancer. He lost his hair when he got ill. Shelly cut hers off so Harish felt less different. She is a special girl.”

Have you ever had a science class that you look forward to? It doesn’t happen often. But when you have a teacher like Mrs. Rheineck, it’s more than a science class. It’s a science class where learning is easy and fun. There is no getting down to a huge textbook or listening to a teacher about something you don’t care about.
My experience with Mrs. Rheineck didn’t start with science class, but with her as my tutor（导师，家庭教师）. I was always a weak reader and wasn’t getting any better. My parents told me I needed to be tutored.
One day after school, I went into the library with my mom for my first tutoring time. I had no idea who was tutoring me. My mom practically had to pull me into the library. The first thing we did was to play a game to get to know each other and get rid of the awkwardness (笨拙，尴尬). We didn’t even play a reading game.
We also went around the library and I got to pick out a book I wanted to read. She didn’t make me read a boring textbook about something I didn’t care about. I didn’t even pick a book. I picked out a magazine about remote control cars. I thought to myself, how bad could it be? I got to read about remote control cars. She told me even though I was reading a magazine, I was still reading. After the first magazine, she picked out a book she liked. I would read a chapter(章) and then she would read a chapter to me, this way I didn’t have to read for long periods of time.
As I got better and faster at reading, I was able to read two chapters in the same amount of time, which used to take me to read one chapter.
Reading is one of the most important things in high school and college to be successful. If it wasn’t for her, I would not be the reader I am today and I thank her for that.
53. Why was the writer tutored by Mrs. Rheineck?
A. Because the writer was too shy to talk with others.
B. Because the writer found science easy and fun.
C. Because the writer liked her science class.
D. Because the writer couldn’t read books quickly.
54. It can be inferred from the third paragraph that __________.
A. the writer went to the library to play a game
B. the writer was unhappy to be tutored
C. the writer knew Mrs. Rheineck very well
D. the writer was awkward to read in the library
55. At the library, the writer __________.
A. chose any book he was interested in
B. played a reading game with Mrs. Rheineck
C. was asked to read one chapter after another
D. had to read textbooks rather than magazines
Big Brothers Big Sisters is based on the simplicity and power（力量） of friendship．It is a program which provides friendship and fun by matching (ages 7-17) with a volunteer adult who can be both a role model and a supportive friend. Volunteer tutors come from all walks of life—married, single, with or without children. Big Brothers and Big Sisters are not replacement parents or social workers. They are tutors: someone to trust, to have fun with, to talk and go to when needed.
A Big Sister and Little Sister will generally spend between one and four hours together three or four times each month for at least twelve months. They enjoy simple activities such as a picnic at a park, cooking, doing sports or going to a football match. These activities improve the friendship and help the young person develop self-respect, confidence and life direction.
Big Brothers Big Sisters organizations can be found throughout the world. It is the largest and most well-known provider of tutor services internationally and has been operating for 25 years.

Emily’s mum came across Big Brothers Big Sisters and thought it would be of benefit to Emily by “providing different feedback about herself other than just depending on schoolmates to measure(测量) her self-worth.
Sarah wanted to get involved(使参与) in a volunteer program. “I googled it and found out how to be a part of it. I thought it would be fun for me to get involved in making time to do something because sometimes it is all work and no play.”

When you get up in the morning, do you find it hard to choose what clothes to wear? ’re older.
Brave New Girls, written by an American author Jeannette Gadeberg, will help you make such choices. To make them, it says, you must be a “brave new girl”. A brave new girl is one who’s confident, healthy and happy. A brave new girl can realize her dreams.
. Other people may tell you what to do, you can listen to them or not, it’s your business. You should only do what you would like.
If you always wear clothes like those of your favorite TV stars, for example, you should stop doing this. Instead, .
The book also says that girls must start becoming more confident. If you’re confident, you’ll succeed in life. A good way to become confident is to realize that you are as clever as boys or you’re much cleverer than boys. Just look at their grades!
Today’s brave new girls will become tomorrow’s brave new women.
Have you ever been sad because you failed in something? If so, please remember, for often, achieving what you expect is not the most important thing. Enjoy the process(过程). Here is a story to tell you why. One day a little boy decided to dig a hole behind his house after watching a science program. As he was working, a couple of boys stopped by to watch. “What are you doing?” asked one of the visitors. “I want to dig a deep hole all the way through the earth!” the boy answered excitedly. The older boys began to laugh, telling him that it was impossible to do it. Then they left.
The little boy kept on digging and digging. Suddenly, a few small colorful stones caught his eyes. He collected them and put them into a glass box patiently. Humming a song, he went on digging. The box was full soon. Then he talked to himself quietly and proudly, “Maybe I can’t finish digging all the way through the earth, but look at what I have found in the process of digging!”
The boy’s goal was too difficult, but it did cause him to go on, in other words, to cause us to keep working.
Not every goal will be achieved. Not every job will end up with a success. Not every dream will come true. But when you can’t achieve your goal, maybe you can say, “Yes, but look what I’ve found along the way! There are so many wonderful things that have come into my life because I tried to do something!” It is in the digging that life is lived. It is the unexpected joy on the journey that really has a meaning.
64. Is achieving what you expect the most important thing in the passage?
65. When did the little boy decide to dig a hole behind his house?
66. Why did the older boys begin to laugh at the little boy?
67. What did the boy find in the process of digging?

___________ you made great progress.

___________. She is interested in music.

Nice to hear from you. As you know I enjoy helping others. I still remember I helped a girl with her English when we were in Junior Seven. Li Hua, one of my classmates, was not good at English, but I did well. So one day, I went to her and told her I could help. Her big smile made me feel good. From then on, whenever she had problems, she would ask me, and I was patient to explain them to her. Little by little, her English improved with my help. At the same time, I found my English improved, too.
Everyone may have trouble in life and we should help each other. In fact, helping others is helping ourselves.
