An Unforgettable Travel Experience
Traveling to foreign countries can always bring me something different. I can still remember I had an unforgettable experience traveling in London with my mom.
One day, we decided to go to Oxford Street by subway. When we arrived at the station, the underground train was just arriving. I was so eager to get onto it that I hopped on as quickly as possible. Before I realized that my mom wasn’t following me, the train had started moving. I looked outside in a great anxiety only to find my mom was waving at me with the same anxiety. Luckily, I brought my phone, so I called; telling her not to move and I would come back soon. When we two reunited, we both felt relieved. We were so scared to lose each other, especially in a foreign country!
Since then I’ve come to an understanding that more haste makes more trouble--never rush but stay calm. Most importantly, always take others into consideration.
话你将听两遍。 Number 1 W: When was the car invented?
M: It was invented in 1885. Number 2 W: Hey, Mike! Where would you like to go on vacation?
M: I’d like to visit the Eiffel Tower. Number 3 W: What kind of music do you prefer?
M: I prefer music that I can sing along with. Number 4 W: I hope to cheer up sick kids on weekends.
M: You could visit them in the hospital.
M: Hey, Kelly. What’s wrong with you?
W: Oh, I’m stressed out. I just want to relax.
M: How about a trip to Hawaii? It has beautiful beaches.
W: That sounds great. I really want to go there.
M: Hi, Gina. You look so tired.
W: Oh, Tony. I had a bad morning!
M: Why? What happened?
W: Well, first, I overslept. By the time I went outside, the bus had already left. So I ran all the way to school.
M: Oh, no! That’s a long way.
W: Yeah. When I got to school, the teacher had already started teaching.
M: You did have a bad morning.
请听一段对话，完成第9至第10小题。 M: So, Kate, tell me about your favorite band!
W: I’d say my favorite band would have to be the Beatles.
W: I love the Beatles because they always make me happy and I’ve grown up with the Beatles. M: And do you have a favorite Beatle?
W: John Lennon. He’s not the funniest, but definitely the coolest.
M: So you must love his songs a lot?
W: Yeah. One of his songs, “Imagine”, is my favorite. He sang this song in a concert once. M: Oh, I know that song! It’s really touching. And I think the lyrics are really good.
W: I agree.
M: Amy, do you have any plans for next Monday?
W: Well, I think I will organize a singing contest to raise money for the School Charity. M: Wow, that’s a nice idea. How will you organize it?
W: I will put up some signs asking for singers. Then we’ll practice our music. Hopefully, we can get as many people as possible to the contest. What about you?
M: My friends and I plan to go to the Old People’s Home.
W: What are you going to do there?
M: We are going to sing some songs to cheer them up and help clean their rooms and so on. You know, just to show our care to those old people.
W: That is a nice plan, too.
One way to get a local experience as you travel is to stay in someone’s home instead of a hotel. Here are some suggestions from my personal experience.
First, the most important thing is to be willing to learn. Remember, you are traveling to a far-away country because of your interest in their culture. Go with them to do things they do, like going to churches, their clubs and visiting their friends.
Second, be willing to teach. Your host families are also likely to be interested in your culture. Share some photos and stories with them.
Another thing is to bring gifts. Never arrive empty-handed. The best gifts are things that are from your hometown, state, or country, such as guidebooks with lots of pictures, calendars, postcards and so on.
Finally, help out with chores in the home. Ask what you can do to help so that you become part of the family and not just a guest.
I hope that your homestay will not just be a place to eat and sleep. Please let it be part of your education, part of your cultural experience and the start of a long lasting friendship for life.
W: Excuse me, Mr. Wilson. Do you have a minute?
M: Sure, what can I do for you?
W: Is there any possibility that I can change one of my courses?
M: Which course do you want to change?
W: Well, I have Spoken English this term, but I think I want to change it to Creative Writing. M: What is your name?
W: My name is Linda James. L-I-N-D-A, Linda. J-A-M-E-S, James.
M: OK, Linda James. Why do you want to change your course?
W: Well, I think the Spoken English class is too easy for me. I guess I want to try my hand at
Creative Writing. That’s what I want. I love writing and I really want to try something new. M: OK. Did you get the teacher’s permission to get into the Creative Writing class?
W: Of course. Here is Mr. Johnson’s add slip. He agreed.
M: Did you get your drop slip from your Spoken English teacher?
W: Yes. Here you are.
M: Everything looks fine. OK, you can go to the Creative Writing class on May 26th.
W: OK, May 26th. Thank you so much for your help.
M: You’re welcome.
