People use their mouths for many things. In the English language, there are many expressions using the word “mouth”. But some of them are not so nice.
Sometimes, people say something to a friend or a family member. Later they regret because it hurts that person’s feelings. Or they tell the person something they didn’t mean to tell. The speaker might say: “I really put my foot in my mouth this time.”
Sometimes when one person is speaking, he says the same thing that his friend is going to say. When this happens, the friend might say: “You took the words right out of my mouth!” Sometimes a person has a bad or sad experience with another person. He might say that experience “left a bad taste in my mouth.” Or the person possibly has a very frightening(可怕的）experience, like having an angry dog running after him. He might say: “I had my heart in my mouth.”
Some people have lots of money because they were born into a very rich family. You might say the person “was born with a silver spoon (银勺) in his mouth”. He is the opposite of a person living from “hand to mouth”. This person is very poor and only has enough money for the most important things in life, like food.

Do you find it hard to learn math and history? A recent study carried out by scientists from University of London, may be of help to you. They found that teenagers could get higher marks in math if they studied in the morning and better grades in history if they were taught in the afternoon.
The researchers did a study at a secondary school in Bulgaria over nine years. The results showed that when teenagers had math classes earlier in the day, they scored on average (平均) 7 percent higher in tests than when taught in the afternoon. Lower-ability students did worst when they were studying math in the afternoon.
In history, students taught in the afternoon scored on average 6 percent higher than when they were taught in the morning. However, it doesn’t work for other subjects such as languages or geography.
Velichka Dimitrova, leader of the study, said the findings show that we do better at different times of the day.
“In the morning, our brains are better and fresher, so we are better at doing something that repeats a lot like problem solving, where we require more speed and attention,” Dimitrova told The Telegraph.
“In the afternoon, it seems that this process (过程) slows down. On the other hand, history is better suitable for the afternoon, when we are more creative and open to discussion,” she said.
Subjects such as foreign languages require both memory and repetition (重复), and they also need people to be creative. This is perhaps why the time of day has no influence on learning.
Time-of-day effects such as those are believed to be connected to the body clock. This is the system in our bodies that controls when we need to sleep. Some schools in the US and UK have tried out later school starting times for teenagers, whose body clocks change as they grow into adults.
Dimitrova believes schools should take this chance to improve students’ performance just by changing their timetables.
58. History is better suitable for the afternoon because ______.
A. it is an easy subject for students to learn
B. we are more creative and open to discussion
C. our brains are better and fresher in the afternoon
D. it’s easier to pay more attention to the work we are doing
59. It is believed that the time-of-day effects have something to do with a student’s ______.
A. age B. hobby C. body clock D. learning habit
60. Dimitrova is sure that ______.
A. it is better to learn history and math in the morning
B. changing timetables properly can improve students’ performance
C. different times of a day have some influence on learning languages
D. it makes no difference for lower-ability students to learn math in the afternoon
61. What is the main idea of the passage?
A. The good advice on managing a school.
B. The importance of learning history and math.
C. The good ways to get higher scores in history and math.
D. The influence of timetables on history and math learning.
It’s always a happy moment when you get some pocket money. But have you ever thou ght about how to spend your pocket money wisely? Here is some advice.
Make a list.
When you get your pocket money, don’t get too excited. We all have a lot of things that we want. But do you really need them? That’s why it is necessary to make a list before you spend money. Start with the thing you want most. You can also write down how much it costs or how important it is in your life. By doing this , you will see if it is really necessary to buy it.
How about being more selfless and using your pocket money to help others? We all know that there are many people in the world who are in need of our help. Helping others brings out the best in us and is one of the greatest joys in our lives. So consider using your pocket money to do something useful and helpful, and feel how you can make a difference.
Save as much as you can.
There is an old saying that “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” If you spend all your pocket money right away, you’ll have no money until your next “pay day”. A wallet sometimes might not be the best place to save money because it may make it easier for you to spend your money. Get a piggy bank or ask your parents to start a savings account (账户) for you. Someday when you look back, you’ll get a strong feeling of achievement by saving so much money by yourself!
62. Why should we make a list before spending money?
A. Because it can help us buy things that we want most.
B. Because it can make sure we buy everything we want.
C. Because it can help us know which thing is the most expensive.
D. Because it can help us know if we have enough money for the things.
63. What does the underlined sentence ‘Money doesn’t grow on trees.’ mean?
A. Money doesn’t come easily. B. Money is as important as trees.
C. One can make money by growing trees. D. We should use our money to protect the environment.
64. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?
A. Helping others can bring us great happiness.
B. We should tell our parents before we buy something expensive.
C. Pocket money can be used to do something useful and helpful.
D. Saving much money can make us get a strong feeling of achievement.
65. What is the best title for the passage?
A. How to save pocket money B. How to get pocket money
C. How to spend pocket money D. How to help others with pocket money

We often see top students around us and everyone knows about them. Let us take Jenny as an example. She is the monitor of our class. She spends a lot of time working for our class. But she always gets good grades in all subjects. How do students like Jenny do that? When I asked her, she said, “Hard work is not the whole story. It’s not how long you sit at the desk with your books open. It’s what you do as you are sitting.” In fact, we can see many top students spend fewer hours on their studies than their classmates. Jenny gave me some valuable suggestions.
If your math teacher gives you five problems, you should do six. If your Chinese teacher gives eight pages of reading, you should read nine. The more you practice, the more you learn.
Studying is a matter of your personal interest, so choose the way you are most comfortable with. Some people like working at night when the house is quiet, while others like doing their work early in the morning. However, others like studying as soon as they arrive home from school while the work is fresh in their minds. No matter which way suits you, try to do your best.
Studying is your business and the business comes before entertainment(娱乐). When you are studying, phone calls should go unanswered, TV shows unwatched, snacks given up. Studying is the only thing in your mind. Nothing can pull your attention away from what you are studying.
Studying is like eating. You should eat a little at a time. You can plan what to do today, but don’t do too much. When you can’t finish the work you planned to do, you will feel stressed and may lose confidence. On the other hand, you will not study well without a good plan. It all depends on how you manage your time.
The students who hand in a clearly written paper are already half way to get an A.. Tidy papers are likely to get higher marks than messy ones. When you write clearly and do your work carefully, the thoughts in your mind are clear. You can avoid making more mistakes.

It’s not easy to let young people accept the ways of the old. It’s becoming e 86 more difficult in the face of new technologies. So officers gathered in Wuhan, Hubei Province that is proved to be good at m 87 children interested in tradition. They shared some lessons. As we all know, many students know little about traditional things. Officers d 88 how to make local operas popular in elementary and middle schools. Officers also agreed that every student should get the chance to w 89 a traditional opera show for free every year.
The work of the theatre was divided into three p 90 : speech, teaching and performance. By the end of November, about 146 e 91 of these kinds were held. Opera artists are often invited to schools to communicate with students and teachers. Traditional opera lessons are t 92 in more than 80 percent of its elementary and middle schools. More than 6,600 opera shows were performed at schools that year, and that was h 93 praised by students and parents.
In this way students can have a taste of the traditional beauty of China. “At first I was afraid these events could be a distract (分心) from study. Now I r 94 that our children have learned a lot from them,” said one parent of No.71 Middle School. One of the officers said o 95 parts of the country could learn some lessons from Hubei Province’s experiences. They hope students all over China will have the chance to learn the art of traditional operas by the end of 2018.

An eleven-year-old boy in a small town wanted to be a train driver. But the boy was born without arms. He was taught by his uncle to use his feet as "hands". How he wished he could be a train driver! One day he saw an empty train and he climbed on. He started it with his feet easily. Nobody could see the boy in the train or stop the train. When he was near the town, a worker caught up with the train and stopped it. At first he was very angry, but when he saw the boy, he was so surprised that he hardly believed it was true. "I like the train and I can drive it with my feet," said the boy quietly but proudly.
