A good way to pass an exam is to work hard every day in a year. You may
fail in an exam if you are lazy for most of the year and then work hard only a few days before the exam. If you want to be good at English, you have to read and speak English as much as possible. A few days before the exam you should go to bed early. It’s bad for you to sit up studying until deep into the night. Before you start the exam, read carefully over the question paper, try to understand the meaning of each question. When you have at last finished your exam, check your answers. Correctthe mistakes if there are any and be sure that you have not missed anything out.

My little brother is six years old, in first grade. Yesterday, he gave mum a letter from his teacher. “I got a red card today. Could you please sign this letter?”
he said to Mom. The letter showed that he had been talking during reading time. He gets a “red card” only once in a while. His real worry is that he hardly ever gets top scores in his schoolwork. The best he gets is “OK”, but often his score is
“You can do better than this”. My mom tells me “You can do better than this”
would mean “Very bad” in China.
In America , teachers are very nice to their students. They never say anything too bad about their students; even if the students are making trouble in class or not working hard enough. The worst they might say is “Please be nicer tomorrow”.
Many parents are pleased with a B-grade for each subject.
I've heard that things are different in China. Expectations(期望) are very high
for students. Even from first grade, they have a lot of homework. My first-grade Chinese cousin spent more time on homework than I did when I was a Grade 6 in the US! Yet his parents and school thought he was a bad student. But to me, he was good,
even though he didn't meet his parents' expectations. My parents tell me that Chinese students are years before American students in math and science!
Do you think it’s too strict in China? Or do you think that it’s not strict
enough in America? Maybe both are true!
