What Do No.5 High School Students Do in Their Free Time Last month we asked our students about their free time activities. Our questions were about exercise, use of the Internet and watching TV. Here are the results. We found that only fifteen percent of our students exercise every day. Forty-five percent exercise four to six times a week. Twenty percent exercise only one to three times a week. And twenty percent do not exercise at all! We all know that many students often go online, but we were surprised that ninety percent of them use the Internet every day. The other then percent use it at least three or four times a week. Most students use it for fun and not for homework.
The answers to our questions about watching television were also interesting. Only two percent of the students watch TV one to three times a week. Thirteen percent watch TV four to six times a week. And eighty-five percent watch TV every day! Although many students like to watch sports, game shows are the most popular. It is good to relax by using the Internet or watching game shows, but we think the best way to relax is through exercise. It is healthy for the mind and the body. Exercise such as playing sports is fun, and you can spend time with your friends and family as you play together. And remember, “old habits die hard”. So start exercising before it’s too late!

1. She says it’s good for my health.
的时态必须和主句中谓语动词时态 保持一致, 都用一般现在时。
2) be good for 对??有好处
例如： Vegetables are good for our health. 蔬菜对我们的健康有益。 Junk food are not good for our
2. only one to three times a week 每周只有一到三次
注意这种表达, “to”为介词。 翻译： 1) 两到三次。 two to three times. 2) 每月四到五次。 four to five times a month.
3. The answers to our questions about watching television were also interesting. 对我们提出的有关看电视的问题的答案也挺 有意思。
1）句子主语为 the answers ，故谓语用 were。 2） 表示“…的答案”要用“answer to…” 如： There’s no easy answer to this problem. 这个问题没有简单的答案。 Her answer to your question is a big “NO”! 她对你所提的问题的答案是一个大大的“不”字！
3）表示“有关…的（问题）”用question about… 如： He asked us some questions about our daily habits. 他问了一些有关我们日常习惯的问题。 Her questions about you were not so friendly. 她有关你的那些问题并不那么友善。
4.Although many students like to watch sports, game shows are the most popular. 虽然很多学生喜欢看体育节目，但游戏类节目 是最受欢迎的。
although 为连词，意为：“虽然，尽管”。 注意：在英语中，当表示“虽然…，但是….”这 样的意思时，although和but不能在同一个句子中 使用。也就是说，在一个句子中，有although就没 有but ，反之亦然。如： Although the car is old , it still runs well. =The car is old , but it still runs well. 这辆小车旧了，但是依然跑得不错。
5. So start exercising before it’s too late! 所以赶紧锻炼起来，不要等到来不及了。
It’s too late 字面意思为“为时太晚，来不及了” 是英语的一个常用表达。如： Now you know you are wrong , but it’s too late. 你现在知道错了，已经太晚了。 句中， It’s too late 与before共同组成从句，表示 “不要等到为时已晚；不要等到来不及的时候； 趁还来的及”。如： You should work harder before it’s too late to catch up.你现在用功还赶得上。
