There is a saying, ―China has the best teahouses in the world and Chengdu has the best teahouses in China.‖Chengdu has not only many teahouses but also the special ways of serving and drinking tea.
As soon as the visitors enter the teahouses, the waiters or waitresses will greet them with teapots and cups in their hands. The cups often have special covers and saucers(茶碟). The covers can keep the water warm.
People who go to the teahouses are not all thirsty. Retired(退休)people pay a little money to the teahouses and then sit there all day long to chat with others. Sometimes, people have parties in the teahouses. They eat fruit and sunflower seeds(瓜子)while they chat and return home when they are tired. Teahouses are also good places for people to talk about businesses. Some of the teahouses even have stages for performances, such as storytelling, cross talk and Sichuan Opera. Sometimes when people have a quarrel, a mediator(调解员)will bring them to the teahouse. After their problem is solved, the person who is wrong will pay for the tea. It is interesting that as soon as the quarrelers enter the teahouse and sit down to drink tea, they have almost calmed down. With the help of the mediator, their problems can be easily solved then. Maybe we can say the teahouses have some special social functions.

"The only thing holding you back is yourself. Never say never", said a rising 17-year-old singer, Justin Bieber, who was just an ordinary boy in Canada a few years ago.
After the accident of falling from the 18th floor and lying in the snow for three hours, my hands were frozen and my spinal cord (脊髓)was seriously injured. All the doctors and professors in the famous hospitals in Beijing told me that there was little chance for my hands and my body to recover (康复).
After half a year of medical treatments and recovering exercises , I could not make any more progress for over a year . What was worse , I suffered a lot from depression ( 绝望).On top of this , I suffered from insomnia , I couldn’t fall asleep the whole night. Hopelessly , mom and I came back to my hometown, which is small town in Guangdong.
At that time , I thought that I would never be able to walk again. I would never love and be loved. I would never be able to earn even a penny. I would never be able to repay the kindness I got from my parents and many nice people . Life was meaningless.
Now two years has passed.My hands are 80% recovered.I can even type faster than a healthy person ! Up to now, I have worked for a company as an interpreter for half a year already. Although I don’t earn as much as before, I am able to pay for the food and clothes I need. What’s more , I even have extra money to buy thanksgiving presents for my parents and my boyfriend. Through my blogs( 博客) , many people get to know me and like me.I can bring happiness to them. I can help those who are still suffering from depression and the pain of illnesses by chatting with them….You see, I am living a meaningful life and I am happier than ever I could have dreamed.

Recently, a solar-powered (太阳能动力的) plane took to the sky for the
first time. It passed an important test on the way to travel around the world.
The plane took off from an airport in Switzerland. It slowly rose above
the fields and into the sky.
―There has never been an airplane of that kind that could fly — never an
airplane so big, so light, using so little energy,‖ said Bertrand Piccard, a leader of the project.
During the 90-minute flight(飞行), the plane did several turns. It climbed nearly 1.6km above the countryside.
Engineers plan to test a night flight before July. Then they will use the results of the tests to build a second plane. They plan to travel around the world in that plane in 2012.
―We want to fly it day and night with no fuel (燃料),‖ Piccard said.
Piccard and pilot(飞行员) Andre Borschberg will take the plane around the world. They will make a few stops to change places and rest after a long time in the air — and to show off their airplane.
The plane will fly at 70 km per hour on average(平均). That is faster than a bike and slower than a car. The pilots will keep the plane in the air for up to five days at a time.

The holiday’s upon us．After months of study, you have some time to yourself．So, why not read a book? Well, some people will say, ―Why trouble with books? We have the Internet and other media（媒体）that offer a lot more colorful programs．Books are history!‖
But don’t be fooled．There’s still a lot to be said for reading-and reading as widely as possible．
One clear reason is that a well-chosen _________is a wonderful collection of _______ and expressions, so long as you have a good dictionary, of course．Believe me, it’s far easier to get 九年级英语试题 第9页 共11页
new English words and expressions from a book or article than it is from the TV or the Internet． （网页）is always full of pictures and the text is often designed（设计） to make it as easy to read as possible．Though ―easy‖ may be welcome, unluckily it’s of little use for any long-time development of reading skills and the general language level．For that, there’s still no substitute（替代品）for a book．
But perhaps the best single reason is that simply choosing what you read and doing it by yourself means that it’s something you do by and for yourself．You can choose what you want to read．It’s hard work, but while you are reading, you’ll find that what once seemed like a duty is now a pleasure．Reading can bring us great pleasure.
