We hold t he answers to about all of life’s questions in our hands today. But that means our brains are feeling free to take some rest. According to the Daily Mail, our growing reliance on(依赖) the Internet for fact checking is making our memories worse.
Scientists at Harvard University found people now regard Google and other search engines as an outside part of their own brains, rather than a tool. Writing in the Journal Scientific American, Harvard psychologists(心理学家) Daniel Wegner and Adrian Ward warn that people who believe their memorable facts that are saved online are much worse at remembering them.
“The Internet is also unlike a human memory partner, it knows more and can produce the information more quickly, you can find almost all information today easily through a quick Internet search. It may be that the Internet is taking the place of people’s memory.”
In a series of tests, researchers found it was easy for people to remember information well if they believed it would be deleted.
Those who thought it was stored on a computer were more forgetful, even if they were asked to keep the information in mind.

Car-hailing company DiDi signed an agreement with TAL Education Group to provide free online courses for the
children of taxi drivers. The courses, worth
30 million yuan, cover all subjects from
primary to high school. Children can study
courses at home, saving parents’time to
spend or pick up children from off-line
According to Zhu Jingshi, vice president of DiDi, all 153 million registered （注册）taxi drivers of DiDi can ask for the courses on the company’s mobile app. The car-hailing company will evaluate（评价）the drivers and provide courses on the basis of the time they became registered drivers with the company, the number of passengers served and evaluation from passengers.
The health and education of children are still priorities for Chinese parents, including taxi drivers. This means that they think nothing is more important for their kids than being healthy and getting a good education. A survey done by DiDi and TAL showed that although the average monthly income（平均月收入）of taxi drivers is only 6000 yuan, many would like to pay 40 percent of their income for their children’s education.
The survey found that most taxi drivers were born in the 1970s and 1980s and worked seven days a week. More than 70 percent of them have children under 18 but very few have time to be with family and children. Only 8 percent of them said they had guided their children in doing homework. Because of these,
60 percent of drivers hope their children could receive the guidance from professional services.
23. The online cour ses would help taxi drivers __________ for their children’s
A. find good schools
B. get better teachers
C. save time and money
D. pay more money
24. The underlined word “ priorities” probably means __________.
25. According to a survey, many taxi drivers would spend about ___________
yuan on their children’s education a month.
26. The best title of this passage is __________.
A. A New APP Called DiDi
B. Free Online Courses For Taxi D rivers’ Children
C. The Taxi Drivers Working Day And Night
D. Taxi D rivers’ Children Having Poor Grades
Quiet classes, quite a few exams and long hours at school ... This might sound like the daily life of many Chinese high school students. But a group of 50 Grade 9 students from Bohunt School in Hampshire, UK, decided to try out Chinese schools for four weeks. This idea has been made into a BBC documentary called Are Our Kids Tough Enough? Chinese School.
Five Chinese teachers came to a UK school to teach the British students in Chinese way, they came from some excellent schools in big cities including Nanjing and Xi'an. One month later, students in Chinese classes would have the same tests as other British students in math, science and Mandarin to see who would test better.
The Chinese teachers came in with full confidence, but they quickly found discipline(纪律) was their biggest challenge. “When I walked into the classroom, some students were chatting, some students were eating, somebody was even putting make-up on her face. I had to control myself, or I would have gone crazy,” said one of the teachers, Li Aiyun.
The British students also complained. Many of them found the classes boring. “In class, we just repeat, repeat, repeat and copy a lot of notes from the board,” one st udent said.
The students finally took the tests, and the results came out on August 18th. The Chinese class did better, Chinese teachers were happy, but they thought it was because those students are more hard-working. They also realized their teaching way was “a bit too rigid(死板的)”, “It’s very hard to say which education system(体系) is better. But I
think we can learn from each other,” said Li.
The British teachers also believe the results are very important. Neil Strowger, the headmaster of Bohunt said: “W e probably do need a longer day at school, but do we really want children to work 15 to 16 hours a day?”
27. Are Our Kids Tough Enough? Chinese School is made by BBC.
A. a documentary
B. a movie
D. a talk show
28. In Britain, high school students may at school.
A. study for 15 hours a day

C. have quite a few exams
D. have many notes to take
29. According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE?
A. Four Chinese teachers taught the British students in Chinese way.
B. The Chinese teachers found it easy to control the British students in class.
C. The British students thought the Chinese teaching way was interesting.
D. The British students in their own classes tested worse than those in Chinese classes.
30. From this program, we know that .
A. Chinese education system is much better than Britain’s
B. British teachers don’t like Chinese education system
C. We should learn from each other to improve our education system
D. British students should come to study in Chinese schools

Dear Mr. Li,
I am Henry from Class Two, Grade Nine. As for the special course, I choose Basketball. I like sports, especially playing basketball. As we all know, playing basketball can help us improve our health, as well as study. Basketball is a team
sport, so when I am playing basketball, it can encourage me to work in groups. I can learn to work with other people better and communicate with them better, too. What’s more, I want to be taller. According to the scientific research, people who often play basketball can get taller than those who don’t. When I am in the basketball course, I hope that we can have more opportunities to practice playing basketball and get better skills.

M: I am, Ms. Manson. I’m having trouble learning English.
W: You said you liked English. What’s the problem?
M: I can’t get the pronunciation right.

W: Can you understand when people talk to you?
M: Well, not always. Sometimes I just don’t understand what people are saying. W: Why don’t you join an English language club to practice speaking English?
The English club meets after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
M: Maybe I’ll go. The only other problem is that I don’t get much writing practice.
W: Maybe you should find a pen pal.
M: That sounds like a fun way to practice writing. Thanks, Ms. Manson.

It was my friend Becky’s birthday last Tuesday. So we decided to go out for a meal. We booked a table for six o’clock in the afternoon at a nice restaurant in town and we planned to meet at five to six, outside the restaurant. I live in a small village about six kilometers away from the town and my dad kindly offered to drive me to the restaurant.
Unfortunately, his car broke down on the way, and we had to wait for the garage to send out a worker to get the car started again, Anyway, that made me very late. Everyone else was there and was already eating. It was then that I realized that I didn’t have a present or a card with me---they were in my d ad’s car. I felt terrible as everyone else gave Becky something for her birthday. Everything went fine after that---- until the end of the meal. We got the bill and were working out how much each person had to pay when I realized that I didn’t have my wallet with me, either. I had to borrow some money from one of my friends. Everyone thought it was very funny, but I was really embarrassed.
