Change is good. Without change our lives would be very boring. Some people don’t change.
They want life to be predictable. They want to do the same things every day and 36 the
same people every day. When something changes, it makes them 37 insecure and uncomfortable. They are just like a child 38 can’t go to sleep unless all his toys are in their proper places.
But change is a big part of life and we 39 change in small ways every day: the young
get stronger, the old get 40 ; we meet new friends; we discover new interests.
You will probably go 41 many changes in your lifetime. In America people can 42
to change jobs an average of ten times during their lives. They can expect to change their homes
eleven times. That’s a lot of change! 43 people in America like changes because they think
they can improve their lives.
Many changes have taken place in recent years in China and most of them are for the
better. People are 44 and they are living longer. People have more money, more food and
they are better 45 . Children are growing taller and the children in Shanghai are now the
tallest in the country. Change has been good for China, and it will be good for you, too.

Grammar is the way a language works. People sometimes describe grammar as the ―rules‖
of a language; but in fact no natural languages have rules. If we use the word ―rules‖, we suggest that somebody make the rules first and then speak the language, like a new game. But languages
didn’t start like that. Languages were started by people making sounds which gradually changed
into words, phrases, and sentences. No commonly-spoken language is fixed. All languages change
over time. What we call grammar is simply a description of a language at a particular time.
Do we need to study grammar to learn a language? The short answer is ―No‖. Very many people in the world speak their own native language without having studied its grammar.
Children started to speak before they even know the word ―grammar‖. But if you are serious about learning a foreign language, the long answer is ―Yes, grammar can help you to learn a language more quickly.‖ It’s important to think of grammar as something that can help you, like
a friend. When you understand the grammar of a language, you can understand many things
yourself, without having to ask a teacher or look in a book.
So think of grammar as something good, something helpful, something that you can use to
find your way like a signpost or a map.

A. rules must be made to speak the language

Successful savings depend on the ABCs of saving.
Aim: setting a goal()
The first step towards savings is deciding on a goal that you want to save for.
Things that don’t cost much money and take a short time to save for are called short-term goals. Saving money to go to the movies or to buy a small toy are short-term goals.
Things that cost more money and take longer to save for are long-term goals. Saving for a
bicycle or a video game player are common long-term goals for kids. A long-term goal for adults
might be a new house, a car, or paying for college.
Bank: creating a savings place
Next, you will need to create a place where you will put your savings. A piggy bank, a can, or
a jar will work. A clear glass will let you watch your savings grow.
If you need to save a lot of money for a long time, you can ask your parents to help you set
up a savings account()at a bank.
Currency(): making savings a habit
Now you are ready to start saving. Do you get money by doing chores? If you do, make it a
habit to put some of the money in your bank before you want to spend it. When you get money as
a gift, put it in your bank, too.

Every year, more and more students become volunteers. The projects may be with their
school, neighborhood, or town and the work of all volunteers is important. Students find that
there are many advantages in volunteering.
First, volunteering helps others. 83 Many people complain about problems in our society.
Volunteers are part of the solution to the problems! While it is easy to complain about things that
are not right, the volunteer takes action rather than complain. When a student spends time
working at a retirement() home, cleaning up a park, or teaching a younger student, the
volunteer makes the world a better place. Second, being a volunteer makes students feel good
about themselves. When a student volunteer knows that his or her efforts have made someone
else’s life better, the volunteer feels great. Students always hear people saying that everyone
should care about other people. Volunteers make it happen. Although some volunteer work is
