I have begun to participate actively in all kinds of English activities, such as going to "English Comers", classmates and with native speakers. As the Chinese saying goes, "Nothing is difficult in losing face any more, if I really work hard on excellent someday. （二） Watching online open classes U.S. top universities has become indispensable for many young Chinese. Guo Lei, a native of Guangzhou, has become 16 (addict) to various open 17 morality courses after she watched the online video of" Justice:What's the right thing to do." Guo was immediately attracted by the topic and the discussion of the Harvard students and justice. About 700 sina micro bloggers 18 (post) different links to the videos. 163.

"This set up a good example of how to change and improve our teaching methods." said Wang, a professor of Sun Yat-Sen University. He also suggested that lectures by some popular Chinese speakers and professors 25 (translate) into foreign languages and posted online to help foreign audiences understand Chinese culture. 23 others to get up 24 has

（三） I believe being honest is one of the greatest gifts. I know they call it a lot of fancy names, 16 upright and straight forward. And it's still what makes a man a good citizen. This is my I've been in the taxi business for thirty-five years, they are bad. Taxi drivers are just like 19 17 (know)there is a lot about it 18 code, and I try to live by. that is not so good. Because taxi drivers are tough, people get the wrong impression
people. Most of them will act as rude fellows.
But almost every week you read in the papers that a taxi driver turns in money or jewels or like that people leave in their cars. Once, I found an emerald ring in my car. I remembered helping a lady 20 a lot of suitcases that day, so I went back to 21 I had dropped her off. It took me almost two days to wait for her in order to return her ring to her. I didn't get as much as "thank you". However, I As far as I know, 22 23 (feel) good because I had done what was right. (practice) everyone will give you something, because most 24 good member of my

Alfred Nobel became a millionaire and changed the ways of mining, construction, and warfare as the inventor of dynamite (炸药) . On April 12, 1888, Alfred's brother Ludwig died of heart attack. A major French newspaper mistook his brother 17 (announce) the death of Alfred Nobel. " 19 18 read. "Dr. Alfred Nobel, ever before, died yesterday." Alfred put down the newspaper sadly. It was his brother rather than 20 who had died and the French newspaper had made a mistake. All the same, Alfred felt uncomfortable. Was this the way the world was going to remember him? He did not like that idea at all. He wanted people to remember him as a man of peace. He invented his dynamite at a perfect moment in time. Many countries were beginning to build roads through mountains and needed a safe, strong dynamite. His dynamite was developed 21 such peaceful uses. He also thought that 22 all countries had the same great 23 16 him and carried an article merchant of death is dead." The article

weapons, they would see how impossible war was and that any country fighting a war

Nobel arranged in a will to give the the sciences. 24 (large) part of his money to establish the Nobel prizes, which would be 25 (contribute) to the causes of peace, literature, and awarded to people who made great
（五） Stephen Hawking, who is the most famous physicist, was born in Britain on January 8th, 1942. As a child, he was enthusiastic about 16 (design) complicated toys but 17 (fortune), in his twenties, he suffered 18 a disease that was impossible to be cured, 19 was a great challenge for him. However, not only was he positive about the misfortunes 20 eventually he defeated all the obstacles but also he was 21 (absorb) in his research in the universe. In 1988, his best-seller A Brief History of Time was published, 22 which he put forward the idea 23 time itself has a beginnings, and that it will have 24 end. In conclusion, he has made outstanding 25 (contribute) to the fields of cosmology and quantum gravity. （六） Perhaps I am courageous, but that's because I've had some inspiring teachers. I'll tell you about one of them. Many years ago, when I worked 16 a volunteer at Stanford Hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liza 17 was suffering from a rare a serious disease. Her only chance of 18 (recover) appeared to be a blood transfusion ( 输 血 ) from 19 five-year-old brother, who 20 (survive) the same disease and developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the boy 21 he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for a moment 22 taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save Liza." As the transfusion progressed, he lay in a bed next to his sister, 23 (smile). But then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked at the doctor and asked in 24 trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away?" Being young, the boy had misunderstood the doctor. He thought he was going to have to give her 25 his blood. （七） Time is very important in our lives. It organizes our everyday moments. However, time never had any importance in my life 16 I received a watch from my father that organized my life and made me more 17 (responsibility). I received this gift on a gray-sky day. I had to go to the airport at 9:00 AM to pick up my Uncle Ali and take him to my father's house. However, I was late because I 18 (hang) out with my friends. Later on that day, around 11:00 AM, I remembered my uncle, but I was very late 19 him. He had left the airport and taken a taxi to my father's house. I got to my father's house at 2:00 PM on the same day and I felt ashamed of 20 at that moment. After I said hi to my angry father and 21 (tire) uncle, my father asked me to sit next to him and handed me this watch 22 gift from him. Then he said, "Essa, did you have fun with your friends today?" I answered, "Yes father, and I'm sorry for..." He interrupted," 23 you did was not very nice and you should be sorry for your actions." He added, "I hope today you learned something important, and this watch will be a reminder for you." I learned a very important lesson from my father: 24 (respect) time and never be late to get someone. This watch is important to me, not because of its price, but because of the lesson 25 I learned from it.
（八） When times become difficult, remember a moment in your life that was filled with joy and happiness. Remember 16 it made you feel, and you will have the strength you need to get through any trial. When life throws you one more obstacle 17 you think you can handle, remember something you achieved through 18 (persevere) and by struggling to the end. In doing so, you will find you have the ability 19 (overcome) each obstacle in our path. When you find yourself 20 (exhaust), remember to find a place to rest. Take 21 necessary time in your own life to dream your dreams and renew your energy, 22 you will be ready to face each new day. When you feel tension 23 (build), find something fun to do. You'll find that the stress you feel will fade away and your thoughts will become clearer. When you 24 (face) with so many negative and draining situations, and you view your life 25 a whole and remember the positive things, you will realize how small problems may seem. （九） With the reform of Chinese higher education, more and more colleges and universities put emphasis on nurturing students' abilities. 16 a consequence, elective courses are available not only for excellent academic performers but also for students of the average level. 17 (certain), students have different reasons 18 (choose) their own electives. For some, practical skills are the essence (本质) of college education, and therefore, courses on computer science, marketing, and finance 19 (prefer). On the other hand 20 may hold the idea of liberal education and electives concerning literature, history, and philosophy are the most welcome. Take me as 21 example: being a disciple of free education, I stand for the idea 22 university is not a place for survival skills, 23 a palace of knowledge and critical reasoning. 24 my major is chemistry, the electives I attend most frequently are English literature, an Introduction to Classic Music, and Different Schools of Western Painting. 25 really widen my horizon. （十） Each of us fails from time to time. If we are wise, we accept these failures as a necessary part of the learning process. 16 all too often as parents and teachers we do not allow our children to have the same right. We convey either by words or by actions that failure is something to be ashamed 17 , and that nothing but top performance lives up to our 18 (expect). When I see a child subject to this kind of pressure, I think of Donnie. He was 19 shy and nervous perfectionist, His fear of failure 20 (keep) him from classroom games that other children played with joyous abandon. He seldom answered questions for fear 21 he might be wrong. He seldom finished his work because he 22 (repeat) checked with me to be sure he hadn't made a mistake. I tried my best to build up 23 self-confidence. And I frequently asked God for direction. But nothing changed until midterm, 24 Mary Anne, a student teacher, was appointed to our classroom. She was young and pretty, and she loved children. My pupils, Donnie 25 (include), adored her. With her frequent encouragement, Donnie became confident.
