are just Chinese people like you and me.
ABC means Americaborn Chinese.An ABC is a Chinese，but was born in the US.Sometimes，people call an ABC “a banana person”~A banana is yellow outside and white inside.So，when a person is a banana，he or she is white inside—thinking like a westerner and yellow outside—looking like a Chinese.

But if ABCs can’t speak Chinese，can we still call them Chinese people?Yes，of
course.They are Chinese.They are overseas Chinese.These people may be citizens of
another country like the US，Canada or Singapore，but they have Chinese
blood.Their parents，grandparents or even greatgrandparents were from China.They all have black eyes and black hair.
But they are not Chinese citizens.They are not people of the People’s Republic of China.For example，we all know the famous scientistC~N.Yang (节振宁)~He

Getting a good education is more important today than ever before.It is the best thing you can do to build a better future for your children and yourself.
Most children in Canada attend public schools.Public schools are completely founded by governments through tax (税收) income.Boys and girls attend the same
school and share the same courses and classes.Schooling in Canada is provided in English and in French.
The rest of Canadian children attend private schools，which are supported mainly by
fees (节) paid directly by parents.Some private schools enroll (招收) only boys or
By law，children must attend school from age 5 to 16.Children are usually in school between 8?30 or 9?00 a~m.，and 3?30 or 4?00 p~m.，Monday through
Friday，from September to the middle of June.There are several different levels in the Canadian education system.The first is called Elementary Schools.In most provinces Elementary Schools include Kindergarten through Grade 7 or 8.
From Grade 8 or 9 through 12 or 13，children go to Secondary School or High
School.High School students must take certain courses for several years，such as
English or French and Mathematics.Some courses help students get a job after they graduate from school.Other courses prepare students for college or university.In Canada，teenagers usually make these choices for themselves，with the advice of
their teachers，guidance counselor (指教节节节) and parents.
Schools usually offer extra activities at the end of the normal school day.These include sports ，games，music and clubs.
Most elementary and high schools encourage parents to take part in school activities.Parents’ nights are organized from time to time.These are chances for parents to discuss their children’s progress with teachers.You may wish to bring a friend with you.After graduating from high school，many young adults continue their
studies through postsecondary education.

Surprisingly，no one knows how many children receive education in English hospitals，still less the content or quality of that education.Proper records are just not kept.We know that more than 850,000 children go through hospital each year，and that every child of school age has a legal right to continue to receive education while in hospital.We also know there is only one hospital teacher to every 1,000 children in hospital.
Little wonder the latest survey concludes that the extent and type of hospital teaching available differ a great deal across the country.It is found that half the hospitals in England which admit children have no teacher.A further quarter have only a parttime teacher.The special children’s hospitals in major cities do best；general
hospitals in the country and holiday areas are worst off.From this survey，one can
estimate that fewer than one in five children have some contact with a hospital teacher—and that contact may be as little as two hours a day.Most children interviewed were surprised to find a teacher in hospital at all.They had not been prepared for it by parents or their own school.If there was a teacher they were much more likely to read books and do math or number work；without a teacher they would only play games.
Reasons for hospital teaching range from preventing a child falling behind and maintaining the habit of school to keeping a child occupied，and the latter is of ten
all the teacher can do.The position and influence of many teachers was summed up when parents referred to them as “the library lady” or just “the helper”~Children
tend to rely on concerned school friends to keep in touch with school work.Several parents spoke of requests for work being ignored or refused by the school.Once back at school children rarely get extra teaching，and are told to catch up as best as they
Many shortstay childpatients catch up quickly.But schools do very little to ease the anxiety about falling behind expressed by many of the children interviewed.63~The author points out at the beginning that________.
A~every child in hospital receives some teaching
B~not enough is known about hospital teaching
C~hospital teaching is of poor quality
D~the special children’s hospitals are worst off
64~It can be inferred from the latest survey that________.
A~hospital teaching across the country is similar
B~each hospital has at least one parttime teacher
C~all hospitals surveyed offer education to children
D~only onefourth of the hospitals have fulltime teachers65~Children in hospital usually turn to________in order to catch up with their school work.
A~hospital teachers B~schoolmates
C~parents D~school teachers
66~We can conclude from the passage that the author is________.A~unfavorable towards children receiving education in hospitalsB~in favor of the present state of teaching in hospitalsC~unsatisfied with the present state of hospital teachingD~satisfied with the results of the latest survey
Beijing (Xinhua)—Blind Chinese pianist Sun Yan,23，will give a concert at the
People’s Liberation Army Theatre in downtown Beijing.
Sun，a student at the wellknown China Central Conservatory of Music，was born
with cataracts (白内障)，which caused him to become blind.He started learning to play the piano when he was three years old and immediately gained acclaim (喝彩) as
a piano virtuoso at the age of six.
Guo Shulan，head of the CCCM，said Sun was the first blind student the school had ever received in its halfcentury history.The wellknown piano teacher，Yang
Jun，taught Sun personally and found him to be greatly talented and strongly determined.
At his concert，Sun will play a dozen masterpieces by composers，such as
Bach，Beethoven and Chopin.
“Common piano players may have a look at these long and difficult musical pieces
while playing，but Sun would have to spend a much，much longer time to fully
memorize a piece of music，” Yang said.“He plays the piano for at least six hours every day.”
