What’s your advice for Erin?
e.g.: I think Erin should tell her friend to get different clothes. Because friends shouldn’t wear the same clothes.

Clothes are not a serious problem. Friends are more important than clothes. Without friends, we wil
l feel lonely. No one wants to be lonely.
3a Reading A letter from a lonely kid
What’s the boy’s problem ?
Read this letter. Underline the problem.
Dear Mary, I have a problem, and I need your help. I always thought I was popular at school. But I just found out that my friends were planning a birthday party for my best friend, and they didn’t invite me. Everyone else in my class was invited except me, and I don’t know why. I can’t think what I did wrong. I’m very upset and don’t know what to do. What do you think? Can you help me? Yours, Lonely Kid

2. Everyone else in my class was invited except me, and I don’t know why. ① else修饰不定代词（something, somebody, 等），疑问代词（who, which, 等）和疑问副词（when, where等）用在这 些词后面，译为“别的” e.g.: What else can you do? ② except是介词，表示“除了……”， except强调“除去”（后边跟的人或物不包含 在里边） 除了汤姆，大家都能游泳。 Everybody except Tom is able to swim.
