I still remember I fell in love with English from a very young age, because I thought it was
such a(n) 16 language. Full of strong wishes of learning English, I began to 17 it . But
soon I found it 18 than expected. There were too many words, expressions and many other
things to remember. And even if you knew 19 , you couldn’t use them correctly and exactly.
And I did rather 20 in my first English test. I was worried about it. This made me upset(不
安) and dropped my interest in English 21 .
While I was in trouble, my English teacher gave me much help. I knew that interest didn’t
mean 22 and I should have some learning methods. I did as he said and tried many different
ways of learning English. 23 the days went by, I could do better and better and became more
and more interested in it.
During the summer vacation, an old lady from Australia visited my school. She had a talk
with us. It was the first time 24 a foreigner. I got 25 nervous at first, but soon I found
it exciting to talk with her, and I learned a lot from her. How I wish to practice speaking English
with foreigners every day!

Every year, many foreign students go to America to study English. Some of them will live in
an American family, but others will make a different decision. They’ll live with friends who come
from their own country. I believe that if a foreign student thinks carefully about the two ways,
he’ll decide to live with an American family. Even though there are one or two disadvantages(不
利之处) to the first way, there are far more advantages.
In making his decision about how to live in the USA, the foreign student is careful to think
about one or two disadvantages to live with an American family. First of all, he must know that
he’s going to feel homesick(想家的) at first. Living in an American family may make this feeling become stronger. Also, the American family may do too much to take care of him. They may ask
him where he’s going, when he leaves home, and when he’ll return.
If a foreign student lives in an American home, he’ll know the country and its people much
better. For example, he’ll see how the parents teach their children. He’ll feel better because the
American family will help him get used to a new life. In an American family, he can learn English
fast. Family members can help him with his homework. When he speaks English, they can help
him correct(改正) the mistakes he has made. In this way, he can learn English more easily.
Although there are some disadvantages to live in an American family, there are more
( ) 26. Which of the following isn’t seen as an advantages in living with an American family?
A. The student may know the country better.
B. The family may do much to look after him.
C. The student can learn English fast.
D. The student can get some help from the family.
( ) 27. What is the best title of the text?
A. Living with an American Family
B. Getting to Know America Better
C. Making English Better with the Help of an American Family
D. Two Days of Living in the U.S.A.
( ) 28. The two ways of living in the USA for foreign students in the text are_______.
A. living with an American family and living in a room in school
B. living with an American family and living with American students in a house which
the student has to pay for
C. living with friends from their own country and living in a room in school
D. living with an American family and living with friends from their own country
( ) 29. By living with friends from his own country, a foreign student_____.
A. may soon get to know American people
B. can learn faster
C. may feel less homesick
D. doesn’t miss home any longer
( ) 30. The writer thinks that it’s good for a foreign student to live______.
A. in an American home

( B )
Every person uses his own special words to show his ideas and feelings. Some of these
expressions are commonly used for many years. Others are popular for just a short time. One such
American expression is “Where’s the beef?”. It is used when something is not as good as it is said to be. In the early 1980s,“Where’s the beef?” was one of the most popular expressions in the United States. It seemed as if everyone was using it at that time.
Beef, of course, is the meat from a cow, and no food is more popular in America than a
hamburger made from beef. In the 1960s, a businessman named Ray Kroch began building small
restaurants that sold hamburgers at a low price. Kroch called his restaurant “McDonald’s”. Ray
Kroch became one of the richest businessmen in America.
Other business people watched his success. Some of them opened their own hamburger
restaurants. One company called “Wendy’s” said its hamburgers were bigger than those sold by McDonald’s or anyone else. The Wendy’s company began to use the expression “Where’s the
beef?” to make people know that Wendy’s hamburgers were the biggest. The Wendy’s television
advertisement showed three old women eating hamburgers. The bread that covered the meat was
very big, but inside there was only a bit of meat. One of the women said she would not eat a
hamburger with such a little piece of beef. “Where’s the beef?” she shouted in a funny way. The
advertisement for Wendy’s hamburger restaurants was a success. As we said, it seemed everyone
began using the expression“Where’s the beef?”
( ) 31. The expression “Where’s the beef?” is used when something is not as good as it is said
( ) 32. Wendy started McDonald’s restaurant.
( ) 33. Other people wanted to open hamburger restaurants because they thought they could
make a lot of money.
( ) 34. Wendy’s made the expression known to everybody by a television advertisement.
( ) 35. The Wendy’s company wanted to tell the others their hamburgers were the most delicious.

English is spoken as a first language by most people in the U.S.A., Britain, Australia, New
Zealand, Ireland and Canada. However, English is also spoken all over the world. It is the main
language in over 60 countries, including India, Singapore and many of the Caribbean and Pacific
islands. In these places English is often a second language.
English is also an international language in many other countries, like China and Japan.
People in these countries use it for business, and travelers to these countries use English when
they get there. Other people may learn English because ?they enjoy reading books in English,
listening to British or American music or watching American films.
English has changed a lot over the years and ?still goes on changing. It is no longer right to
talk about British English or American English because they are much the same. People in Japan
and Korea, for example, may use the American spelling but may not sound like Americans.
English will probably the most widely used language in the world by the end of the 21st
century. This language no longer belongs to(属于) British, American or Australian. It belongs to anyone in the world. So, as middle school students, you should think about how you can use this

Last week, I interviewed a lot of students at Hope Project High School about the best ways to learn English. Many said they learnt by using English. Some students had more specific
suggestions. Liu Ying, for example, said the best way was by reading English magazines. She said
that memorizing the words of English pop songs also helped a little, but she thought studying
grammar was boring. Wang Hong feels different. He thinks studying grammar is a great way to
learn a language. He also thinks watching English movies is a good way because he can watch the
actor say the words. However, he thinks studying with a group is frustrating. Yang Lei said that
joining the English club at school was the best way to improve English. She also added that
students got a lot of practice by reading aloud. However, she said having conversations with
friends wasn’t helpful at all.
