Some people think only school children do not agree with their parents, however, it is not true. Communication is a problem for parents and children of all ages. If it's hard for you to communicate with your parents, don't worry about it. Here are some suggestions for you to bridge generation gap（代沟）.
Don't argue with your parents. Don't get to your parents when you are angry. Your parents probably won't consider your ideas if you are shouting at them You can't express（表达）yourself well if you are angry. Go to some place to cool off. Make sure you understand why you are unhappy. Then think about what you want to say to your parents. If you don't think you can speak to them at the moment, try writing a letter.
Try to reach a compromise （和解）. Perhaps you and your parents disagree（有分歧） on something. You can keep your disagreement and try your best to accept each other. Michael's mother didn't agree with him about buying a car. They argued over it, but finally they came to a compromise. Michael bought the car, but only drove it on certain days.
Of course your parents might refuse to compromise on something. In these situations, it is especially important to show love and respect （尊敬） to them. Showing respect will keep your relationship strong.
Talk about your values. The values of your parents are probably different from those of your own. Tell your parents what you care about, and why. Understanding your values might help them see your purposes in life.
A good relationship with your parents can make you a better and happier person. It is worth having a try.

Students at a primary school in Fuzhou, East China's Fujian Province were required to clean the school toilets to help them develop good habits.
But some parents are strongly against the idea. They can't see the advantages of students doing such chores（杂事）. They think that the school should provide students with a proper education, not the chance to be school cleaners.
In fact, parents, schools and society play an equally（同等地）important role in developing the character of students. It is good for schools to give students such tasks, because few of the students will do them at home. Their parents want them to do homework only. In recent years, some parents will make mountains out of molehills when students are asked to do some chores in schools. Some complain about the teachers if their kids get hurt in schools; some even challenge the schools' teaching methods and management. As a result, many primary schools, especially those in big cities, do not let students join in outdoor activities during breaks, fearing that they might get hurt. This is bad for the development of students' best qualities.
What the primary school in Fuzhou is doing is worth praising. Doing chores can put a sense of responsibility into students' minds and teach them the spirit of rules as well as teamwork. Also, it can make students' in-school experiences more meaningful.

There are few families in the United States that do not have either a radio or a television set. Both of them have become necessary parts of our daily life, keeping us Americans filled with the news of the day, teaching us in many fields of interest, and making us happy with singing, dancing and acting.
Marconi, the Italian inventor, who gave us the radio, probably didn't know how much his great invention would have done for the world in the years to come. Radio had, perhaps done as much as any other communication tool. Things of the world can be reported to people everywhere a few seconds after they happen. Travellers in out-of-the-way places, ships at sea and even astronauts around the Earth are able to keep in touch with each other by radio.
Television is another important invention. It lets us see as well as hear the actor. Since its appearance, TV has done a great deal in the daily life of people everywhere. Many programmes
are now televised in colour.
Perhaps the most modern invention is "Telstar", a "star" moving around the Earth. It makes it possible for people all over the world to be closer than ever before. Now a family in Chicago can watch a motorcar race in Italy, a table tennis competition in Beijing or a volleyball match in Japan on TV as these events are actually happening!
（1）The passage tells us that in the USA have no radios or television sets.
A. a large number of homes

（2）Why does the passage say radio and TV have become necessary parts of our daily life?
A. Because they have included nearly everything in our life.
B. Because man would not live happily without them.
C. Because they are the only ways to spread information.
D. Because no communication means no life.
（3）What is the use of a "Telstar" according to the passage?
A. To receive and store information only.
B. To move around the Earth just like the Moon.
C. To give light onto the Earth at night.
D. To help broadcast radio or TV information to the world.
（4）Who do you think the writer of the passage is？
A. An Italian.
B. A Japanese.
C. An American.
D. A Chinese reporter.
（1）细节题。根据There are few families in the United States that do not have either a radio or a television set，可知在美国少数家庭没有收音机或电视机，故选C。
（2）推理题。根据Both of them have become necessary parts of our daily life可知，因为它们几乎包含了我们生活中的一切所以广播和电视已经成为我们日常生活中不可或缺的一部分，故选A。
（3）推理题。根据It makes it possible for people all over the world to be closer than ever before这使得全世界的人比以往任何时候都更亲近可知T elstar帮助向世界广播电台或电视信息，故选D。

This year the US will honour（纪念）one of the country's most famous writers-Mark Twain
（1835-1910）.Most readers know that his real name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens, but how many know where the pen name "Mark Twain" came from?
The answer shows Clemens' colourful early life before he became a writer. "Mark Twain" was the cry shouted on a ship when the ship entered a part of a river that was two fathoms（6 feet）deep. "Twain" is an old-fashioned way of saying "two". Twain trained as a ship pilot on the Mississippi river for two years, a time that he wrote about in the humorous Life on the Mississippi （1883）.
The famous river would become an important theme in many of his works-who could forget the journey of Huck and Jim along it in his most famous book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn（1884）.
With little education, he had to teach himself how to write stories. Whenever possible, he would go to public libraries. There he spent much time reading and thinking, which greatly helped him with his writing.
On the other hand, his life experiences gave him wonderful material to write about and attract readers. Twain wrote in a style that has been called "local colour" because it shows great knowledge of local people and their customs.
The gift is very clear in the two books for which Twain is still celebrated today: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer（1876）and its follow-up The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which many people call "The Great American Novel".
The most amazing invention in his book is the voice of Huck himself. Huck did not enjoy schooling. It shows in the way he uses language, in a spoken style. Only a master like Twain could copy the way a young southern boy talked so well.
（1）What does the underlined word "gift" mean in the passage?
A. Twain's talent for self-teaching.
B. Twain's "local colour" writing style.
C. Twain's good sense of humour.
D. Twain's experiences as a ship pilot.
（2）According to the passage, what is the best part of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?
A. The deep social meaning.
B. The exciting life experiences.
C. The special way that Huck talks.
D. The nice view of the Mississippi.
（3）Which is the most suitable place in the passage for the sentence, "Twain did not come from the writer's background you might expect."?
A. At the beginning of Paragraph 2.
B. At the beginning of Paragraph 3.
C. At the beginning of Paragraph 4.
D. At the beginning of Paragraph 5.
（4）What is the passage mainly about？
A. Mark Twain's career as a great writer.
B. Mark Twain's interest in describing local life.
C. Mark Twain's achievements in American literature field.
D. Mark Twain's life experiences which influenced his writing.
（1）推断题。根据Twain wrote in a style that has been called "local colour" because it shows great knowledge of local people and their customs.可知吐温以一种被称为“地方色彩”的风格写作，因为它显示了对当地人及其风俗习惯的深刻了解，所以gift指的是吐温的被称为“地方色彩”的风格写作，故选B。
（2）细节题。根据The most amazing invention in his book is the voice of Huck himself.他书中最惊人的发明是哈克自己的声音，故选C。
（3）细节题。根据With little education, he had to teach himself how to write stories.可知马克吐温学历低，并不是来自你期望的作家背景，故选C。

When doing his math homework, Lu Lifei, 14, from Jiangsu, came across a problem. He couldn't work it out. So he took out his cellphone and searched the problem. The answers soon appeared on the screen.
Nowadays, many students do homework with the help of the Internet like Lu. They search information online, use apps or discuss through social networks like QQ and WeChat. "It's convenient. You don't have to wait, " Lu said. "You also learn by watching how others work them out." "It also improves students' abilities, "said Wang Shiying, 15, from Shanghai. "And it's especially true for new types of homework."
Wang's Chinese teacher often asks students to give speeches on great writers. When it comes to Wang's turn, she usually searches online, learns about certain stories and makes slides（幻灯片）by herself. "I've become good at finding information online and using Microsoft Office, "Wang said.
However, this trend（趋势）also brings up problems. Some students just copy the answers online without thinking. They become lazy.

When Carson Palmer, a professional American football player, hurt his arm a few years ago, he took a week off to stop throwing the football. But in his head, Palmer practiced every day. The following weekend, Palmer had the best game of his life.
For more than a century, scientists have been trying to understand how this mental training works. In the 1930s, researchers proved by experiment that when you're imagining an action, your brain sends signals to your muscles which are too weak to tighten the muscles but might help train the body to perform. In other words, mental practice might create a plan in your head, like a how-to guide for a special skill.
Sports researchers have done hundreds of studies comparing imagined and physical practice for actions. In short, the studies show that mental training works. A 2012 study compared 32 nonprofessional golfers with another 32 who only imagined their action. Under the same training program, both groups improved their skills.
Imagination has advantages over the real thing: You can do it anywhere and any time. It is safe---a main advantage for people such as gymnasts and doctors. And you can practice for longer periods of time because you're not controlled by physical tiredness. That's not to say it's easy. "we've had Olympic-level sportsmen sitting in our laboratory, imagining for two hours," says Tadhg Macintyre, a sports researcher in Ireland. "When we're done, they're completely tired."
It doesn't work for everyone, though. "If you're a beginner, the influence can be harmful," warns Macintyre. If you're trying to imagine a free throw, and you don't even know the proper movement, then you're probably going to mentally practice the wrong skill, and your skill is going to be impaired."
（1）How does mental training act on one's physical practice?
A. Taking a week off from being tired.
B. Performing the action before imagining.
C. Using imagination to guide one's body.
D. Buying a how-to guide before mental training
（2）What do we know about imagination training?
A. It is not influenced by time and space.
B. It is easier to do than real practice.
C. It is more useful for golfers.
D. It is fit for everyone.
（3）What does the underlined word "impaired" in Para. 5 mean?
（4）What can be the best title of the text?
A. A New Way of Doing Sports
B. Advantages of Imagination
C. Methods for Mental Practice
D. Mental Training Makes You better？

Big data（数据） is lot of sets of information that are put together so they can be used by a computer program. The computer program looks for different kinds of answers or patterns in the data. Big data can have different kinds of information from many sources, such as information that comes from schools, social media sites（社交媒体网站）, companies and governments. One set of data can have people's names and addresses. Another set can have what they like, where they go to school, and how much time they spend on the computer.
Big data can be used in many ways. The government uses it to understand how many people travel on buses or trains. This information is then used to make bus or train systems better. Some schools use big data to understand which children may need more help in class. The teacher can then give certain students more help or support so those students can succeed in school. Companies use big data, too. It helps them understand who buys their products. For example, one company uses weather data to see when people eat the most ice cream.
Big data can be used for good reasons. Some hospitals use big data to predict if a baby who is born too early will get sick. The hospital can then take extra steps to take care of that baby so he, she does not get sick. Big data can also be used for bad reasons. It can be used to predict which kinds of people are likely to break the law or hurt others, even if they have not done anything wrong.
How can big data be used for good and bad things? It is because the computer programs used to look at big data and understand it are written by people. People think a certain way. Because they think a certain way, they build a model of those ideas. These ideas are then used to look at the data. Sometimes, these ideas are helpful for people or businesses. Other times, bad ideas can cause problems for certain groups of people.

This August, we'll welcome guests from all over the world. Some of them follow their own special cultural traditions. It's important for us to know about them.
In many countries, such as Thailand, India and Malaysia, people believe that the left hand is unclean. So, it's not proper to use one's left hand to hold food, touch others or pass objects. Doing so may offend some guests.
Some Westerners may be offended if you touch them or their personal things-even by accident. If this happens, say sorry politely.
Some elderly Westerners may be offended if you try to help them without their agreement.
People think numbers can be lucky or unlucky. Some Westerners avoid the number 13 because they believe it is unlucky.
Muslims（穆斯林）do not eat pork, and words like pigs are not considered proper.
People from Brazil, Italy and Pakistan do not give handkerchiefs（手帕）as gifts. They believe a handkerchief is closely connected with unhappy feelings.
Wine is not sent as a gift in many parts of western and middle Asia, where most Muslims live.
