 In American schools there is something called the Home-coming Day, Many high schools and colleges(大学)with a football team have a home-coming game. This can be the most important event(事件)of the year except the graduation(毕业)day. Students plan the Home-coming Day for many weeks.

                                              Do as the Romans Do

    The customs in different countries are rather different. If I have dinner with a Chinese host, he always puts more food onto my plates as soon as I have emptied it. That often discomforts me greatly. I have to eat the food even if I don’t want to, because it is considered bad manners in the West to leave one’s food on the plate. I have already noticed that when a Chinese sits at an American’s dinner party, he very often refuses the offer of food or drink though he is in fact still hungry or thirsty. This might be good manners in China, but it is not in the West at all. In the United States, it is impolite to keep asking someone again and again or insist on his accepting something. Americans have a direct way of speaking. If they want something, they will ask for it. If not, they will say, “No, thanks.” When an American is fed with beer by the host, for example, he might say, “No, thanks. I’ll take some diet, Pepsy-Cola(百事可乐)if you have it. ”That is what an American will do. So when you go to the United States, you had better remember the famous saying: When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

  1. From the passage, we can know that the Chinese are usually ________ to the guests.

    A. very hot         B. rude

    C. impolite         D. cold]

  2. When a foreigner has dinner with a Chinese host, he often feels _______.

    A. pleasant         B. uncomfortable

    C. satisfied            D. happy

  3. Why does a Chinese often refuse the offer of food or drink at a dinner party?

    A. He has had enough.

    B. He is shy.

    C. He is afraid that others will laugh at him.

    D. He thinks it’s polite to do that.

  4. When an American wants something to eat or drink at a dinner, he will _______.

    A. ask for it boldly

    B. refuse the offer

    C. ask for it directly

    D. express himself indirectly

  5. “When in Rome, do as the Romans do “means “________”.

    A. When you got to Rome, you should act as the Romans do

    B. When you stay in Rome, you should do as the Romans do

    C. When you are in a new country, you should do as the locals do

    D. Romans can be an example for you

  There is usually a good rail service (服务) between main towns in Britain. If you are under 24 or over 65 0r if you are traveling with a family, you can buy cheaper tickets on the train. In towns and cities there are usually buses. On Sundays there are fewer bus services and some smaller places may not have a Sunday bus service. In London there is also an underground. But the underground is not easy to use, so you should learn more about it before you use it.

A desert is a very dry land where there is hardly any rain. In the day, it can be so hot that you could fry an egg on the ground. But during the night it is sometimes so could that water would turn into ice.

Many desserts are covered in sand. But some have mountains, rocks, or lakes that have dried up in the heat. The Great American Dessert has cliffs(悬崖) that have been made into amazing and beautiful shapes by the wind. The Sahara Desert in Africa is mostly sand. The Australian Desert has red sand.

Sometimes it does not rain for a whole year in the desert. But there is water deep under the ground and some plants have roots that go very deep to find it. Other plants have roots that spread out(延伸) a long way so they can suck up the rain as soon as it falls.

One desert plant is the cactus, which has long, spreading roots. The cactus stores water inside its hard skin. This skin protects it from heat and cold.

Camels are a bit like cactus plants! They store water tooinside their bodies. They have special fur which protects them from the sun during the day and keeps them warm at night.

Some other animals live in deserts, too. They have to be very good at seeing and hearing because most of them only come out at night. This is why many desert animals have extra big eyes or ears.

A desert fox has bigger ears than a normal for. A gerbil has huge eye, so that it can see at night. It stays cool in the day by staying underground, like most desert animals.

Some people live in the desert but they always make their homes near an oasis. An oasis is where water comes from an underground river. Near an oasis, people can grow lots of plants and keep animals.
