1 Dogs

People often say that a dog is man's best friend. Over thousands of years, man has taught his dogs to do many kinds of work besides guarding the home. For example, sheepdogs are famous for their ability to control a flock of hundreds of sheep.

Dogs have been used to aid disabled people for centuries. A guide dog can lead its blind owner. Nowadays, dogs can be taught to turn on light switches, open refrigerator doors and dial the telephone for their disabled owners. For the majority of people, however, dogs are simply pets and friends for both young and old members of the family.

guard 看守,看护 sheepdog 牧羊犬 flock 群 aid 帮助

disabled 残疾人 century 世纪guide dog 导盲犬 dial 拨 majority 大多数

人们总是说狗是人类最好的朋友。几千年来,除了看家外,人类还教会了狗去做许多其他的事,例如,牧羊犬就因其可以控制数百只羊的羊群而出名。

狗用来帮助残疾人已有好几个世纪了。导盲犬可以为盲主人引路。现在,人们还教狗为残疾主人打开电灯、开冰箱和拨电话。然而,对于

大多数人来说,狗只是家里老人和孩子们的宠物和朋

English Language

I m interested in English. English is a very important language. It is widely used all over the world. If you travel around the world, you’ll find English everywhere. It is widely used for business between different countries. If you know English, you can enjoy many books. It s really a bridge to much knowledge.

I have learned many English words. I hope I can talk with foreigners in English and let them know our country better. Some people say the world is smaller than before.

2

An Unforgettable Challenge

When I was ten years old, I began to chat with foreigners. But I was very shy. Gradually, I became more and more confident with foreigners’ help. The following year, I went to Yangzhou with two foreigners. I became their guide. First, we came into the Shouxi River. They wanted to look around the river by boat. I told them the price. Then we got into the boat. When we looked out at the sight, we all felt very beautiful. After that, they went to buy souvenirs. The sellers couldn’t speak English. Though it was very hard, I tried my best to listen to their words carefully and translate the sentences. They bought some souvenirs with my help. Next, we went to a small zoo, and we took some photos. There were not many animals. When we felt hungry, we went out and had lunch. After lunch, we visited some old houses. They learned more about Chinese history.

This wasn’t only a big challenge but also an unforgettable challenge. This opportunity made me confident and brave.I hope I can catch many opportunities in the future, then I can speak English, because I think practice makes perfect.

3

My Dreams

I want to be a teacher when I listen to my teacher carefully. I think I can be a teacher when I grow up. I can help many students learn things well. I can play with my students, too. So we are good friends. I want to be a doctor when I see many doctors save their patients. To be a doctor is really great. I think I can be a doctor when I grow up. Then I can help many people out of danger. I will be the happiest girl in the world. I want to be a reporter when I watch TV every evening. We can get lots of important information from them. They make the world smaller and also make us happy. I would like to be a reporter when I

grow up. And I can learn a lot about China and the other countries around the world. I can meet many superstars as well.I have lots of dreams. I think my dreams can come true one day, because there’s an old saying “where there is a will, there is a way.”

My school day

Hi, I’m xxx. I'm 14 years old and I study in Laoshan School. My school is not very big. Every morning I get up at seven and have breakfast. And then I go to school at half past seven. At eight twenty, we begin our morning reading. Lessons begin at nine o’clock. We have four lessons in the morning and Chinese is my favourite lesson. We usually have 10 minute's break between two lessons and at about 12:30 we finish our morning lessons. I have lunch at school at twelve thirty, too. I like school lunch and I always have rice with meat and vegetables. After lunch I often talk with my friends or play basketball with them. In the afternoon lessons start at half past one and finish at four thirty. I play games after school with my friends and then go home at five. In the evening I do my homework and then watch TV. At ten o’clock I go to bed. It’s really a busy day but I like it.

5

Healthy eating

My name is xxx. I am 14 years old. I want to be a doctor when I grow up. To be a doctor, I must be healthy. It is important for a doctor to be healthy.

Before, I seldom ate vegetables. Because I disliked vegetables. I liked sweet snacks. They taste delicious but they are not good for me. They give me energy but they are not healthy. So I must change my diet. Now, I eat a bowl of rice for breakfast, and I often eat an egg. For lunch, I usually eat a bowl of soup, vegetables and a bowl of rice. I eat meat and vegetables for dinner. If I want to be healthier, I must exercise. So I changed my lifestyle. Now, I often exercise once a week. I do not eat snacks or fast food any more. So I think I am healthy.And I am very happy. I hope everybody is healthy and happy.

6

Eating taste

People in different parts of our country have very different ideas about what is good to eat. In our country, for example, people from the south like to eat rice, however, people living in the north prefer bread or noodles. The people of Hunan or Sichuan enjoy hot food. But people of Shanghai or Suzhou will choose sweet dish.

Even if people live in the same part of the country, their tastes may be very

different. Old people and young ones have different tastes; men and women also have their different preferences. In a restaurant, some customers order soups that is thick and heavy, while others drink soup that is thin and clear. A few people only eat vegetables. They don’t like fish or chicken.

Therefore, it is not easy for restaurants to satisfy the needs of all the customers. To increase their business, the restaurants in the cities try their best to make foods in different kinds and different styles. They sometimes add new names of dishes with different tastes to their menus for customers.

7

Protect our environment

As we all know, the environment around us is getting worse and worse .In some places we can’t see fish swimming in the river or trees on the hills. Some people even have no clean water to drink. So I think we must do something to

. .But what can we do? How to protect our environment? In fact, there are many things we can do. Firstly, we can go to school on foot or by bike and don’t throw rubbish everywhere. Secondly, we can use shopping baskets but not plastic bags when we go shopping. Last but not least, we can use both sides of the paper when we write. In a word, if everyone pays more attention to our environment, there will be less pollution and our life will be better.

“There is only one earth”, we should act at once. I hope everyone will protect our environment well.

8

Water

Water is very important for living things. Without water there can be no life on earth. All animals and plants need water. Man also needs water.

Water is found almost everywhere. Even in the driest part of the world

there is some water in the air.

As we all have found out, water may be a solid, or a liquid or a gas. When it is a solid, it may be as hard as stone, When it’s a liquid, you can pour it out of a container. When it is a gas, you cannot see or feel it.

Although about 70 percent of the earth’s surface is covered with water, there are many places in the world still running out of water. So we should make good use of water on earth.

9

Be brave to the earthquake

Everyone has some unforgettable experiences. An earthquake

happened in Sichuan Province on Monday, May 12, 2008. It is the most

dangerous earthquake in Chinese history. Many people were killed. A large number of houses fell down. I was shocked. When I see theses picture on TV, my eyes were filled with tears.

Now, more and more people and volunteers go to disaster area to help people who are in trouble. I was moved. I wanted to do something for people in the disaster areas, too. I thought although I couldn’t go to Sichuan like the soldiers and the doctors, I still wanted to try my best to help them. I took out all my pocket money and threw it into the donation box.

I hope they can rebuild their homeland early. I believe that if every-one makes a contribution for our country, we can overcome any difficulties.

10

Freedom and Peace

Almost everyday we can see there are always a huge number of pigeons enjoying the sunbath in some large squares, but do you often care what a white pigeon stands for? That is peace.

For hundreds of years, people always regard pigeons as a represent of freedom and peace. That is because of not only its lovely pure figure, but also its great passion to the outside world. Till now, I still can't help thinking of such a picture: In Iraq, a boy was watching a white pigeon over his head. The background was full of wounded solders and guns. Thus, this lovely white pigeon was contrastive to this iced background and gave people a deep consideration. Suddenly, a thought comes into my mind: Why there have been so many wars in the world just for someone's own interest? Why can't people live like as mall pigeon with freedom? I hope there will not be wars,

FOREVER!

英语短文:拥抱生态旅游

Aremote Patagonian town that's just beginning to prosper by guiding tourists through the virgin forests nearby is being shaken by the realization that it's sitting on a gold mine. Literally. More than 3,000 worried Esquel residents recently took to the streets in protests aimed at assuring that their neat community of 28,000 beco mes an ecotourism center, not a gold-rush town.

巴塔哥尼亚一处偏远的小镇因为发展附近一处原始林的观光业正渐趋繁荣,在这个节骨眼,却如晴天霹雳般得知,当地原来蕴含金矿。没错。三千多位忧心如焚的艾斯圭尔居民最近走上街头抗议,要求将这处拥有两万八千居民的净地作为生态旅游中心,不要沦为淘金城。Esquel's plight is winning attention from international conservation and environmental groups such as Greenpeace. In Argentina, the town has become a national symbol in the debate over exploitation vs. preservation of the country's vast natural resources.

艾斯圭尔的窘境正获得"绿色和平"等国际保育及环保团体的高度关切。在争论阿根廷丰富的自然资源究竟该开发或保育的议题上,该镇俨然成为全国的象征。

About 3.2 million acres already are under contract for mineral exploration in poor and sparsely settled Chubut Province, where Esquel is, near the southern tip of South America. Whether Meridian Gold Corp. gets its open-pit gold mine outside Esquel could determine the fate of mining in Patagonia, a pristine region spanning southern Argentina and Chile.

艾斯圭尔位于接近南美洲大陆极南点、贫穷而人烟稀少的丘布省内,矿物探勘合约涵盖了该省近三百二十万亩的土地。巴塔哥尼亚高原是横跨阿根廷与智利两国南部的化外之地,而该地采矿业的命运,将取决于MDG公司能否取得艾斯圭尔外围露天金矿的开采权。

Meridian's project, about 5 miles outside Esquel at a higher elevation, is about 20 miles from a national park that preserves rate trees known as alerces, a southern relative of California's giant sequoia. Some of them have been growing serenely in the temperate rain forest for more than 3,000 years.

MDG公司计划开采的地点约在艾斯圭尔五里外海拔高一点的地方,跟一座国家公园约二十里,这座国家公园保育着稀有的落叶柏科树木,一种美国加州红木的南方品种。有些柏树已在这片温带雨林安然度过三千多年了。

The greatest fear is that cyanide, which is used to leach gold from ore, will drain downhill and poison Esquel's and possibly the park's water supplies. The mine will use 180 tons of the deadly chemical each month. Although many townspeople and some geologists disagree, the company says any excess cyanide would drain away from Esquel.

最严重的威胁是,在矿砂滤取黄金的过程中使用的氰化物将会向下排放,污染艾斯圭尔、甚至国家公园的水源。开矿过程每个月会使用一百八十吨的这种致命化学物质。尽管许多镇民和部分地质学家不同意,该公司表示,所有过量的氰化物将全数排出艾斯尔圭。

"We won't allow them to tear things up and leave us with the toxic aftermath," said Felix Aguilar, 28, as he piloted a boatload of tourists through a lake in the Alerces National Park. "We take care of things here, so that the entire world can hear and see nature in its pure state. The world must help us prevent this."

二十八岁的菲力克司亚奇拉在带领一船旅客浏览落叶林国家公园一座湖泊时说:"我们不会允许他们把事情搞砸,把毒害留给我们。有我们悉心呵护这里的一切,全世界才得以欣赏饱览此地纯朴的自然之美。世界应该和我们一起守护这里。"

American Douglas Tomkins, the founder of the Esprit clothing line and a prominent global conservationist, has bought more than 800,000 wilderness acres in Chile to preserve alerces and protect what's left of the temperate rain forest. Ted Turner, the communications magnate, also has bought land in Argentine Patagonia with an eye to conservation.

美国服饰品牌Esprit的创始人,也是国际知名自然保育人士的杜格拉斯,汤姆金斯,为保育落叶林及温带雨林内仅存的生物,买下智利八十多万亩的土地。媒体巨子泰德·透纳着眼于环境保育,也买下阿根廷巴

塔哥尼亚土地。

A young English botanist named Charles Darwin, the author of the theory of evolution, was the first European to see alerces, with trunks that had a circumference of 130 feet. He gave the tree its generic name, Fitzroya cupressoides, for the captain of his ship, Robert Fitzroy.

进化论的发表人-年轻的英国植物学家查尔斯·达尔文,是第一位见识落叶柏树干圆周长达一百三十尺的欧洲人。他似他船长的名字罗伯费兹·洛伊,为这种树取了学名"费兹洛柏"(即:智利柏)。

Argentina, pressed by the United States, Canada, the World Bank and other global lenders, rewrote its mining laws in the 1990s to encourage foreign investment. Mining companies received incentives such as 30 years without new taxes and duty-free imports of earth-moving equipment.

受到美国、加拿大、世界银行及全球其他债权者频频施压的阿根廷,为了促进外商投资,在九○年代修订了矿业法令。给予矿采业的奖励措施包括三十年免征新税与免税进口矿业开采设备等等。

Argentina took in more than $1 billion over the past decade by granting exploration contracts for precious metals to more than 70 foreign and domestic companies. If the country were to turn away a major investor, the message to its mining sector would be chilling.

阿根廷过去十年内与国内外七十多家业者签订贵重矿物开采合约,获得十亿美元以上的利润。如果拒绝主要投资客户,阿根廷的采矿业将面临萧条的景况。

Residents also complain that Argentina hasn't given nature-based tourism a chance."If the government invested in us a tenth of the effort they put into mining, things would be a lot different here," grumbled Randal Williams, 73, who rents tourist cabins in Esquel.

当地居民也抱怨阿根廷政府不肯给自然观光业机会。在艾斯圭尔经营观光小屋出租,现年七十三岁的蓝道·威廉斯抱怨:"当初如果政府肯花他们投资采矿业资金的十分之一在我们身上的话,事情就会改观了。"

Forest ecologist Paul Alaback, a University of Montana professor who studies the alerces, said Argentine authorities could gain from Alaska's successful nature-based tourism. "Nature-based tourism would mean less jobs immediately but would be sustainable. You'd be building on something that is going to grow, not going to go away," he said.

蒙大拿大学教授,也是研究落叶植物的森林生态学者保罗,雅勒贝克表示,阿根廷当局可以仿效阿拉斯加自然旅游业的成功之道。"在当下,发展自然旅游业的确意味着工作机会立即减少,但它却能永续经营。你应该要去建设会茁壮成长的东西,而非日渐消逝的事物。"

英语短文:Of Studies

STUDIES serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability. Their chief use for delight, is in privateness and retiring; for ornament, is in discourse; and for ability, is in the judgment, and disposition of business. For expert men can execute, and perhaps judge of particulars, one by one ;but the general counsels, and the plots and marshalling of affairs, come best, from those that are learned. To spend too much time in studies is sloth; to use them too much for ornament, is affectation; to make judgment wholly by their rules, is the humor of a scholar. They perfect nature, and are perfected by experience: for natural abilities are like natural plants, that need proyning, by study; and studies themselves, do give forth directions too much at large, except they be bounded in by experience......

读书足以怡情,足以傅彩,足以长才。其怡情也,最见于独处幽居之时;其傅彩也,最见于高谈阔论之中;其长才也,最见于处世判事之际。练达之士虽能分别处理细事或一一判别枝节,然纵观统筹、全局策划,则舍好学深思者莫属。读书费时过多易惰,文采藻饰太盛则矫,全凭条文断事乃学究故态。读书补天然之不足,经验又补读书之不足,盖天生才干犹如自然花草,读书然后知如何修剪移接;而书中所示,如不
