2014株洲中考新题型 1. A recent report from Zhuzhou Daily says about 18% of Zhuzhou teenagers can have problems with their minds（内心，精神）. Some students become worried because they have to study very hard. Others have trouble getting on well with people like their parents and classmates. Zhang Qiang, a Junior 2 student from Zhuzhou , could not understand his teachers in class and was doing badly in his lessons. He was afraid of exams. When he looked at the exam paper, he couldn’t think of anything to write. Another student, a 15-year-old girl called Wu Yan often argued with her classmates even her parents because of some different ideas. She became so annoyed about them that she started to cut her finger with a knife. However, many students who have problems won’t go for advice or help. Some think they will look stupid（愚蠢的）if they go to see a doctor. Others don’t want to talk about their secrets. In order to solve the teenagers’ problems, here is some advice : ●Talk to your parents or teachers often.
●Take part in group activities and play sports.
●Go to see a doctor if you feel unhappy or unwell.
2. In most Chinese tea villages, March is the time of year in which locals start to pick and process tea. The usually quiet villages suddenly become crowded centers of activity, as people take out special tools and prepare for tea processing. In some villages, local residents hold traditional ceremonies, thanking heaven for its blessing. The price of tea picked in March is extremely high because it is fresh, tender and contains multiple trace elements.
China has been famous for tea production since ancient times. Of the goods transported and traded along the Old Silk Road linking China to the Middle East and Europe, the importance of tea was matched only by silk. China produces Oolong, black, green, white, yellow and dark tea. The Oolong, green and black varieties are most famous for their high quality.

3. Although we don’t want an earthquake to happen, it happens usually. Recently, The earthquake that shook Japan on March 11th, 2011 caused the tsunami（海啸）. So far, the tsunami has taken 12, 671 people’s lives away. We can’t stop the earthquake happening, so it is quite important to teach people how to survive(幸存) in an earthquake. Would you know what to do during a big earthquake?
Firstly，Keep calm. Always remember that panic can hurt you.
Secondly，find some safe places to stay in and don’t run in a hurry. If you are in the room, you should hide yourself under something hard，such as desks，tables or even beds and stay away from shelves and cupboards，and never take a lift to go downstairs. If you are in the open air，you should find an open place and never get close to cars or waterside.
Thirdly，we should help each other when we meet trouble.
At last，no matter how strong the earthquake is，if we have the belief(信念) to defeat(战胜) it and never give up，we must be able to overcome any difficulty.
