In the eyes of many foreigners, Chinese are the best hosts and the worst guests in the world. They’re not really bad guests, but because the guest-host relationship(关系) in China is much different than in some western countries. It seems that they are not nice guests. And western guests sometimes look rude in the eyes of Chinese guests.
In China, guests are almost like gods(上帝). Whenever I enter a Chinese person’s home, there is always fruit on the table for me, and someone is quick to bring me a cup of tea or water. In the west, generally the guest is not a god. Acting according to(根据) the host’s way of doing things is usual behavior for a guest.
My wife’s mother, a very kind elderly Chinese lady, doesn’t smoke. When I see some of her guests smoking in her house, as a non-smoker, I feel unhappy. Usually I want to stop them directly(直接地), but I must realize that in China, to be a good host, she must not do that. In most North America homes, if you are a guest, and the hosts are not smokers, you should not smoke in their house. At the very least, you could ask, “Is it OK if I smoke?” But don’t besurprised if the hosts say, “No, you can’t smoke.” In our culture, if you smoke in their home, you are a bad guest, but if they don’t allow you to smoke in their house, they are not a rude host.
Guests in China also have special habits. Some western people may not adapt to these habits very soon. Thankfully my wife is Chinese, so whenever we visit a Chinese family she tells me to buy them a gift. However, giving a gift to a host is not always necessary in my country. So, if you invite international guests to your home, don’t be too surprised if they don’t bring you a gift.
In China, you probably won't need to change the guest-host relationship very much because you will probably only be the host, and Chinese are naturally very good hosts. If western hosts invite you to their house, try not to be too surprised if their style of treating you is not what you have expected.
( )61. Many foreigners think that Chinese hosts are the _________in the world.
A. best B. worst C. most natural D. most difficult
( )62. When a western guest visits a Chinese family, he often _________.
A. buys some fruit B. feels like a god C. wants some gifts D. takes a cup of tea
( )63. If the writer’s guests want to smoke in his house, what will he probably say?
A. It’s OK if you smoke here. B. Let’s smoke together.
C. Sorry, you can’t smoke here. D. Smoking is a bad habit.
( )64. What is the meaning of the underlined phrase “adapt to” in the passage?
A. think back to B. get used to C. look forward to D. keep close to
( )65. What is the main idea of this passage?
A. Foreigners should learn from Chinese. B. Hosts must do things in the guest’s way.
C. Western hosts are always nice to guests. D. People should understand cultural differences.
What will the house of the future look like? Could it have gardens on its walls，or a pool with fish for dinner? Architects (建筑师) believe that they are all possibilities. The only thing for sure is that the houses will be as green as possible.
The tree house
Many architects in the world would like to build a “tree house”. Like a leaf，the surface(表面) of the house collects sunlight during the day. The energy can be used to heat water, produce electricity, and even create fresh air for the home. The “root” (根) of the house is deep under the ground. It uses the soil (土壤) to keep the home’s temperature.
The lizard house
Like a lizard (蜥蜴), changing color with the weather is the most important design of a lizard house. When it’s in the bright sun, the cover of the house will turn dark to protect it from strong heat. During dark days,it turns white and takes in as much light and heat as possible to produce energy.
Meals at home
This design is perhaps as much about the future of food production as architecture (建筑风格). It has gardens on the outside wall of the house. People can plant tomatoes, carrots and green tea on them. So every day in the morning, you just need to walk outside and collect your meals.
Learning from the past
Looking to the future isn’t the only way to be green. Sometimes, ancient techniques (古老的技术) can also help cut down energy use. For example, a chimney (烟囱) can be a useful air conditioner because it is easier for hot air to flow out at the chimney.
( ) 66. What is the best title of the passage?
A. Green Houses of the Future B. Different kinds of houses
C. The Greener, the Better D. How to Build Green Houses
( ) 67. We can heat water，produce electricity or create fresh air for the home .
A. with the root of a leaf B. with the energy from sunlight
C. with the soil under the ground D. with the tree built at home
( ) 68. What will happen to the cover of the lizard house when it’s in the bright sun?
A. It will turn white. B. It will produce energy.
C. It will produce light. D. It will turn dark.
( ) 69. The passage seems to tell us that meals at home in the future .
A. will be more delicious B. need more cooks
C. will be greener D. will be easy to cook
( ) 70. A chimney can be a useful air-conditioner but it used to cause .
A. pollution B. accidents C. noise D. change
In the past, people used words to express their ideas and feelings. Now people have a new way to share their life with their friends on WeChat Moments (微信朋友圈).
To make WeChat Moments, people can use pictures, sounds, videos and their words to express what they want to say. Some people don’t write anything. They share what they are eating, drinking, listening to, buying and fun time by sharing pictures.
Someone says that WeChat Moments are like personal TV stations. People don’t have to spend money putting them on the Internet, so it is easy for people to make them and watch them on their phones. Only friends on the users’ list can watch your WeChat Moments. WeChat businessmen even put the advertisements of their products（产品） on the WeChat Moments for their friends to choose and buy. WeChat Moments are becoming more popular among people. When we post（发表） something on it, we must be sure that the information should be healthy for people to read and watch.

We all need a healthy environment, but we produce waste every day and it does harm to our environment. Though we are young, we can still do something to help. In fact, even the simplest everyday activities can make a real difference to the environment. Here are some ideas for you about how to live a green life.
Remember these three words; reduce, reuse and recycle.
Reduce means “use less”. Don't waste things. This saves money and reduces pollution and waste going into the environment. Before we buy something new, think if it is really necessary or maybe the old one will be just as good! When we do buy things, choose local products if possible, and try not to buy too many things from abroad.
Reuse mean “use again”. Use things for as long as possible. When we buy things, make sure that they last a long time. We should take care of them so that they will last, or we should repair them if we can. Don't use paper cups or paper bags. It's better to use a china cup(瓷杯) and a lunch box because you can use them again.
Recycle means “change things into something else”. Although it takes energy to change something into something else, it's better than throwing things away or burning them. Find out what can be recycled in your neighborhood and take part in recycling projects. We should also buy products made from recycled materials, such as recycled paper, to help save trees.
Title: 76 to Live a Green Life
We produce waste every day and it is 77 to the environment. We can do something to help.

3. W: Excuse me, Mr. White. How could you find the way home?

4. W: Have you ever been to Shanghai, Paul?
M: Yes, my parents took me there when I was young. But I plan to visit Tian’ anmen Square alone this summer.
5. W: Excuse me, does this bus go to the People’s Park?
M: Yes. Let’s get on it.
6. W: When did you come to China, Paul?
M: I came here about eight years ago. My parents came here three years earlier than I did.
7. M: Mummy, could you help me with my homework?
W: I will go out soon. You may ask your dad.
8. M: When did you arrive at school this morning?
W: At 7:45. Fifteen minutes later than usual.

M: I caught a cold yesterday, but I feel much better now.
10. W: How can we save power?
M: We can save power by turning off the lights when we leave a room.
M:I used to spend all my pocket money on clothes and snacks. How about you?
W: Me, too .Now, I try to save some money for charities.

Here are some good table manners for you to follow. When you have dinner with friends, arrive on time, not too early or too late. You’d better bring a small gift. While you sit at the table, just eat what you want. Never stand up to get the food. Do not make any sounds while eating or drinking. After meals, don’t leave at once or stay too long. It is nice to call the host or write a thank-you note the next day.
The first International Friendship Camp began in the USA in 1967. Last year, the International Friendship Camp was held in Beijing. About 50 teenagers from around the world stayed with local families for two weeks. They had a great time.
Antonio from Italy said, “I didn’t expect Chinese teenagers to be so friendly. I thought they would be serious and hard-working, because they have a lot of exams. However, they are active and outgoing. They are similar to Italian teenagers.”
Shirley from Canada said, “Some members of my host family can’t speak English but we have still become good friends. They are kind and generous.”

九、One possible version:
Hello, everyone. I’m David from Class 1, Grade 8. Back to the life in the last year, I think I have changed a lot and made great progress in many ways.
First, In the past I seldom read books. I used to spend most of my time playing computers games. Now I find it interesting to do some reading because good books help me relax after a busy day. They also open up a whole new world to me.
Second, I always forgot to turn off the tap and the power when they were not in use. Sometimes I left the tap running after I washed my hands. I always dropped litter carelessly in the park. But now I have realized the importance of protecting the environment. I always throw the litter into the rubbish bins.
Third, I was impolite before. I sometimes shouted loudly or pushed in before others in public places. Now, I can behave politely in public and I often give my seat to someone in need on the bus.
Fourth, I cared little about others. But now I offer to help my blind neighbors and donate all my pocket money to Project Hope.
I’m sure I will do better and better in Grade 9.
Thanks for listening!
