On Saturday morning, John got up early to go to a sports club. On his way, he saw three of his schoolmates at the mall, Rie, Asuka and Yuki. They were always together because they were very good friends.
“I'm shopping for new shoes,” Rie told John. “But I have big feet so nothing fits! We have been shopping everywhere but I can't find any big shoes!”

Australia, also known as “the Land Down Under”, is a country, an island and a continent (大陆). It's the world's smallest continent and the sixth largest country. But only about 24 million people live there. The first people there were the Aborigines (澳大利亚土著居民). In the late 18th century the British arrived. Today the British influence on Australia is still very strong. For example, the national language is English and drivers drive on the left side of the road.
Australia was cut off from the other continents a long time ago, so a lot of Australia's animals, like the koala and the kangaroo aren't found anywhere else in the world. Australia also has some of the most dangerous animals in the world. There are poisonous (有毒的) snakes and spiders. In the north there are huge saltwater crocodiles, and in the sea, around the coast, there are sharks and poisonous jellyfish.
The largest city in Australia is Sydney with its famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The 2000 Summer Olympics were held in Sydney. But Sydney isn't the capital (首都) of Australia. The capital is Canberra.
Australia is a huge country, but most Australians live in the south-east corner between Sydney and Melbourne. This is because most of the land is very dry. Australians call this dry area the outback. There are some huge farms there with millions of sheep. The children who live on these farms can't go to school, because the nearest town is too far away. They study at home with the School of the Air. They used to talk to their teachers by the radio and, nowadays, on the Internet. There is also a “flying doctor” service. The doctor comes to the outback by plane.
61. What's the population of Australia?
62. What does the second paragraph mainly tell us?
63. Is Harbour Bridge in Sydney or Canberra?
64. In which part of the country do most Australians live?
65. Where do children living in the outback study?
value, prevent, land, medicine, wolf

The school's classrooms have all changed (76)______ seated desks to standing desks. “It's now the first all-standing school,” Juliet Starrett says. She (77)______ the group StandUp Kids and wanted to have every US public school kid using a standing desk in the next 10 years.

But not everyone believes standing is (82)______ than sitting. Some parents and teachers worry that kids will get tired and that standing for long may cause (83)______. And standing desks are more expensive.
Benden says both sitting and standing desks can cause problems (84)______ they are not the proper height. “Our (85)______ should not be ‘Sit less, stand more',” he says, “but ‘Sit less, move more'.”

Ⅻ. One possible version:
I had a frightening and exciting experience last Thursday night. After finishing my homework, I was going to bed. Just then, I heard the sound of footsteps outside my door. I wondered who it could be. It couldn't be my father or my mother, because they had gone to their friend's party. They said they would come back home late. It couldn't be a thief, either. A thief would feel afraid and be very quiet. Perhaps it could be my neighbor. He may have come back home from work. He always works late in the office. I said to myself, “Be brave! There's nothing to be worried about.” Then I opened the door and all my friends were there saying “Happy birthday”. I thought they'd forgotten! How excited I was!
