Intensive Reading (80min)
Part I (Para 1) Questions:
What does Paragraph 1 function as in light of the structure of the passage? It works as the thesis statement of the text. The topic sentence is that: “it was well worth the effort.”
1. “Although at times, learning a language was frustrating, it was well worth the effort.” (Para. 1) eg: 他决定去看一看那栋房子，因为它值得买下来 He has decided to have a look at the house for it is well worth buying.
Part Ⅱ: (Para. 2-7) Questions:
1. Why did the writer enjoy learning English in junior middle school (Para. 2) The writer had a kind and patient teacher who often praised all of the students. 2. How did his experience in learning English in college differ from his experience in junior middle school? (Para. 4) The classes were very large so the author can only answer a couple of questions. And he also got intimidated since other students spoke much better than he did. 3. Why didn’t the author feel intimidated while he was taking an online course? (Para. 7) The author took all the time I needed to think out his ideas and wrote a reply before posting it on the screen.
1. The Cause-Effect Structure Topic: my learning experience in junior middle school Cause: I had a kind and patient teacher who often praised all students
Effect: I eagerly answered all the questions.

No! No!” It didn’t take me long to lose my eagerness to answer questions.” (Para. 3) How to paraphrase the underlined sentence? I was no longer eager to answer questions after a short time. 4. “Not only did I lose my joy in answering questions, but also I totally lost my desire to say anything at all in English.” (Para. 3) eg: Not only did he finish his homework, but he also cleaned the room. 他不仅做了作业，而且还打扫了房间 eg: With the help of online learning, not only did she speak English more correctly, but also more fluently. 在网络学习的帮助下，她不仅英语说的更正确了，也更流利了。 eg: Not only does she easily accept her classmates’ opinion, but she is also polite. 她不仅很容易接受舍友的意见，而且还很礼貌。 6. The Cause-Effect Structure Topic: My learning experience in senior middle school was different from before Cause: My new teacher quickly punished those who gave incorrect answer. Effect: It didn’t take me long to lose my eagerness to answer questions. 6. “However, that state didn’t last long. When I went to college, I learned that all students were required to take an English course.” (Para. 4) Use your own dictionary; look up the word “state”. How many meanings does it have? And which one does it mean here? 7. “Unlike my senior middle school teacher, my college English teachers were patient and kind, and none of them carried long, pointed sticks!” (Para. 4) Unlike vs. dislike Unlike: prep. Different from
Dislike: v. do not like Unlike my senior middle school teacher, my college English teachers were patient and kind, and none of them carried long, pointed sticks. Everyone here seems to dislike him. 8. “However, the situation was far from perfect, though.” (Para 4) eg: Far from angry, he is very happy 他一点都不生气，反而很高兴。 9. “The communication medium was a computer, phone line, and modem.” (Para 5) Use your own dictionary; look up the word “medium”.

But I didn’t feel intimidated by students/ who spoke faster than I did/ because I took all the time I needed to think out my ideas/ and wrote a reply/ before posting it on the screen. 13. “Then, one day I realized I could understand just about everything I came across, and most importantly, I could “say” anything I wanted to in English.” (Para 7) eg: The young man would get nervous every time he came across a girl. 那个年轻人每次遇到女孩子就紧张

Writing skill： A Paragraph of Cause and Effect
In the text, the writer describes his experience in learning English at different stages of his life. In junior middle school he made great progress. In senior middle school, however, he didn’t learn well at all. He said that he stopped talking in class because his teacher was not that patient. This is an example of cause and effect writing. It gives us the reason for something happening.
Write an essay in which you discuss the causes or effects of our society’s fascination with reality TV. An essay on the causes would discuss why Chinese are so intrigued
with reality television shows. An essay of effects would show how this fascination with reality TV has affected Chinese society.
