In a 2005 survey of 2005 schoolchildren in six cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, it was found that about 77% of them were short of sleep. Should school hours be cut? In new survey taken by the China Daily website, almost 70% of the 1, 133 people online agreed with cutting school hours, while 20% disagreed and 10% gave no answer.
Liu Xing (12-year-old, 6-grade student): I get up at 5:50 every school day, have breakfast at 6:15, leave home at 6:30 and, after a 30-minute bus ride, arrive at school at 7:00, a full hour before lessons start. Besides, I spend my weekends taking classes in math and English, as well as learning to play the piano.

It is said that as the population of a city grows, so do its problems. Pollution, too many cars, and crowded streets are just a few of these difficulties. One way to help with these problems is city trains. Trains traveling to different parts of a city mean fewer cars and buses on our roads, cleaner air, and more open streets. In recent years, cities such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai have all built city train lines.
The first city train line in China was built in Beijing. The oldest part of the train line, from Beijing Zhan to Ping Guo Yuan was opened in 1969. Its length was 23.6 kilometres. As the city grew after 1980, so did the need for more trains. A newer train line was built to help move people around the city centre. The 16-kilometre-long “circle (环形) line” was finished in 1987. Since that time even more train stations have been built and today the train lines in the city are over 50 kilometres long.
For the 2008 Olympic Games, the trains of Beijing will be very important. It is thought that most of the people who go to watch the different sports during the Games will travel using trains.
