If only I hadn’t said those silly
words! I was too young then to
distinguish right from wrong.
I am frequently asked the question ,”Can you use chopsticks”
I have lived in Korea,Japan and China.In each country,I have,C.more often than not and without having requested one,been given a fork B.when one was available.I have politely refused and said that I would be fine with chopsticks.Sometime,I have to make B.further explanation.
Chopsticks are A.the least of my worries when I am eating in an Asian home or restaurant.In fact,learning D.how to use chopsticks takes me B.nothing but a few weeks .This is not to say I was skillful, though.Learning how to use chopsticks is easy for me,C.whereas learning the rituals and how to D.conduct myself at the table is quite difficult.A.Just how many times do I have to say ”no ,thank you” C.when I really mean” no ,thank you ,I truly am full ”?How do I get away with refusing more food without D.offending someone?If I insist and I still get more ,is it appropriate just not to eat it ?This would be C.impolite where I come from.
I have enjoyed many great meals and my C.interactions with the people have been great.I am B.increasingly aware that I will never be able to A.give back as much as I have received. I don’t know how I can ever thank all of the people who introduced me to eating in Asia.
This was what all of the
training and pain was
about-winning. I watched TV to
see the young runner who had been
under my B.coaching for the last
few years .I would have been there
on the spot D.had it not been for
the traffic problem .I couldn’t
B.make it even on my bicycle.
While I watched the young runner
enter to the cheers of thousands of
people ,I could not help
C.thinking of the pains that he had
gone through in his training.
The young runner was hardly
considered to be B.promising
when he first came to me .There
were countless training C.sessions
full of pain for him.I had seen
fatigue written on his face I had
heard him A.swear at me.I had
been A.indifferent to his anger
and pain.It was clear that only hard
work could B.earn him success.I
had smiled to myself when I found
that he had too much D.passion to
give up .And he would B.persist
with the training until he reached
perfection .I had never forgot to
remind him that D.despite the
challenges he had to keep on
practice. It was unfair that he had
no time for his G F. But that was
life for him.
The thunderous shouts and
cheers drew me back to the TV
screen. Oh, my dear ,the young
runner was B.gaining speed .He
was running to the finish line .He
was strong enough to C.beat other
runners.His courage ,heart and
discipline together with his years
of practice won him the honor.
Tears rolled down my cheeks when
I found on the screen the young
runner was looking around .I
understood at once that he was
right reasons”.Love had
A.nothing to do with
marriage .And ,for my husband’s
part, well, I C.suspect love was on
his mind either .He married me
because I made him feel young .He
was such an ordinary man going
B.around his very ordinary
midlife crisis .He was
divorced ,looking for younger
women and a career change .That
didn’t B.bother me, though .He
was still fairly charming ,pretty
handsome and C.above all rich .I
married for money ,and I don’t
have any B.doubt about it .My
friends don’t C.applaud my
decision ,but I can also tell that
they wish, at least a little bit ,for
some of the same things that I now
enjoy .They always prefer to
D.speed a lot of time by my
swimming pool than at their
common little homes .And another
thing, they are always
http://m.wendangku.net/doc/11b05c77ba0d4a7302763ada.htmlplaining about their
“beloved”. “He’s always watching
how much I spend.”“It’s become
more like a business relationship
D.than a marriage.”
B.care how much I spend and our
marriage never become a business
because it already was one. You
could say, we have a A.mutual
understanding .We are very
D.realistic about the whole
thing .It is painful for my friends
when they realize that love is just
an C.illusion.Marriage for love
never existed for me. And, he’ll
never D.divorce me .He’d lose too
without it life has no meaning or
purpose.I Love allows us to do
more than we could B.eve r
accomplish without its power. So
often we take good care of our
C.physical needs .We make sure
our bodies are fed ,cleaned ,clothed,
exercised and rested .However ,we
tend to A.overlook the most
important need-love .Of course, as
a society ,love is not
overlooked .Popular media
constantly places great emphasis
D.on what we need to do to attract”
love”. B.But being loved is not as
powerful an emotional need as that
desire to love someone else.
The need to love and A.care
for other is built into us
biologically .This need is D.what
allows parents to give up sleep and
food while raising their children.
This need is what allows people to
put themselves D.at risk to save
other from natural C.disasters or
Love means to cherish ,hold
dear, and treasure. We do not hurt,
harm ,or cause pain to those we
love;rather, we seek to A.alleviate
their suffering .It’s not about
wanting to possess or control
others; it’s about wanting to set
them free .Love is the power
A.that allows the wheel of life to
continue turning ,for when we love
B.beyond our own needs and
desires. We D.sacrifice our
time ,our energy, our wishes, and
sometimes even ourselves because
of love .It is love that allows
emergency services personnel to
face danger. It is love that allows
soldiers to C.risk everything. The
ultimate definition of love is not
about feeling good C.but rather
about doing good.
table. Mrs.Stewart had lost all C.patience in telling him to stop. Her words were falling on B.deaf ears .She had asked her son to quit doing sth. that was bothering her so many times that she A.hardly even knew the words were coming from her mouth .Billy had B.got used to this .He just D.ignored his mom’s expressions like these .He banged on without a pause.
She used to try to phrase her words in A.positive ways like,”When you bang on the table that way ,it D.upsets me. Would you C.mind doing sth. else that is a little quieter? ”There was warmth in her voice and she had all of the best B.intentions. But when she actually managed to get Billy’s attention in this way, he simply replied ,’But I’m bored.’’ She tried to offer him a bunch of D.alternatives, but nothing worked and it all became too tedious .It had become A.noticeable even to herself that she was A.increasingly using negative expressions.
Mrs.Stewart seems to understand that D.even if she shouts she can’t expect Billy to respond immediately. But she still believes that to keep on C.applying the pressures might work someday .Children may learn that arguing no longer works because of her continuous shouting. different name at your birth. Some
of us A.recognize that our name
does not necessarily fit and start
using a different name B.rather
than the one we were given. Many
of us B.choose to use our middle
name so we can be true to our
parents, and at the same time be
more confident. Some people who
have changed their name D.claim
that their professional lives
improved .They feel better about
themselves so they are B.more
likely to achieve more .But those
who have changed their names are
not just being overly sensitive.
Name themselves A.convey some
information causing others to make
judgment based solely C.on
them .Here is an example :A
magazine D.declined to print a
writer’s name simply because the
editor thought it suited a baseball
player C.more than an art
critic .Another example: A women
at a party became C.embarrassed
when she wanted to be introduced
to a man she had declined because
of his name .One study showed
that teachers give different grades
to the B.identical essays written
by boys with different names.
A.Similarly, girls’popularity can
be related to their names.
Yet, which name works and
which does not depend on the
times .The good qualities of a
well-liked president or actor can
often influence A.how a name is
seen .But if a name becomes too
well-known ,it might also fall out
of favor A.as parents look for sth. a
little more unique for their child.
financial stress .My company was
cutting jobs and they were
D.evaluating each worker’s
performance .This was
C.inevitable in those days of
rising competition and
D.shrinking companies .The
companies were getting smaller
because of the B.hopeless
economic conditions .I knew I was
being considered as one of the
workers they would let go though I
had been overworking .Or maybe
it was my home life .My wife and I
had gotten in an B.argument and
my 19-year-old daughter
announced that she was leaving the
house to move in with her
I am usually not a person of
quick C.temper ,but yesterday
was different .I rode my bike to
work B.as usual；it’s about 20
kilometers .I had stopped for a red
light and then B.proceeded when
the light turned green .I had
D.assumed the car coming from
my right would stop, B.but
instead it went right on through
the red light and C.nearly hit me .I
C.barely had time to react .I
grabbed my bike lock and threw it
at his car ,hitting his rear window
and making a crack.
The driver stopped and got
out of the car. I laid my bike down
and picked up the bike lock from
the ground for B.protection .Then
he reached for his phone to call the
C.puzzles me. From my
B.perspective, the world is never
seen so many C.incredible
opportunities for young people
Trends toward specialized
careers and lower salaries leave
economists and sociologists
A.fearful that the next generation
of employees will be C.confined
to roles that are too narrow and
thus not B.regarding enough.
Many say corporations are taking
D.advantage of the labor force.
B.But, no one is forcing our youth
into such A.occupations. If a
rewarding job does not A.exist in
the current system, they’ll have to
C.create it for themselves. The
Internet has already answered
students’cries for more C.career
p o s s i b i l i t i e s.T h e n e x t
breakthrough to create something
truly creative is A.bound to
happen anything now. At the same
time let’s D.ensure that students
are prepared for the day when their

By telling our young people
everything has already been done
and that there is nothing left to
dream about, we are D.robbing
them of the opportunity to create a
system that is new and exciting,
outside the confines of what is
B.currently imaginable. But then
again, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I
shouldn’t A.worry about our
youth at all. Their ability to
D.challenge what is before them
and defy our unnecessary worries
is their great strength. Maybe by
telling them they can’t, we are C.in
effect encouraging them to create
something truly incredible. All in
all, the future for the young people
is not gloomy; A.instead,
