Workers wear them. Swimmers wear them. Scientists wear them. Woodcutters wear them. People who play sports wear them. Goggles protect the eyes. They keep out water and chemicals. They keep out bits of wood or stone. They might look funny, but goggles do serious work!
Why do people need to wear goggles? They need to keep the can hurt our eyes. Have you ever gotten a piece of sand or dirt or other small particle in your eye? What happens? It hurts. Your eye begins to fill with tears. Those tears are your body’s way of getting the sand or dirt out of your eye. Sometimes this works. Your eye feels much better.
But what happens if your tears don't work? What happens if the piece of sand has gotten stuck in your eye? Eyes are delicate. They can be scratched or cut easier than skin(皮肤). If the particle is not washed out by tears, you might have to go to the doctor. You could even have problems seeing out of that eye.
Instead of waiting to see if tears will help, some people use goggles. This can prevent things from getting in their eyes at all. If they use goggles. their eyes are protected from the things that can cause problems, Goggles are a better way to protect eyes. They are made of plastic or glass, and they are tied around your eye area. Some of them hook behind your ears like glasses. Other goggles have a strap (带子) that goes around your head. Both kinds stay right where you put them until you take them off. That way, you can use both hands to work or play sports, and you don t have to worry about something getting in your eyes.

For me, one of the greatest pleasures in life is going to watch a great film at the cinema. It's a chance for me to get away from real life. There's nothing better than being lost in a story unless, of course, someone decides to break down the moment.
Whether at a cinema or a huge theatre, someone usually decides to treat the place like their own home! There is an accepted way of behaving at the cinema which some people don t seem to understand.
To start with, some people always turn up late, causing you to rise from your seat to allow them to go past. Then, when you want to enjoy the surround-sound effects, someone begins to enjoy their drinks and popcorn and thus makes a lot of noises, And what I can't stand most is people who decide to chat to their friends, sometimes not even about the film.
I'm not alone in this situation. Simon Mayo, a film critic at the BBC, experienced a “new low" during a film. He says, "The woman in front of me got a mirror out, then her boyfriend got a phone out and used the light on it to allow her to do her make-up!”
Simon has helped to create a list of rules on how moviegoers should behave at the cinema. One of them is no use of mobile phones, and another is not to take your shoes off--a most serious offence(冒犯)!
Of course, when we have paid for a ticket, we feel it is our right to relax and enjoy the film in the way we want to, but we mustn't forget our fellow moviegoers who want to enjoy the cinematic experience, too.
The best choice for anyone wanting to break the rules of cinema manners is to get a DVD and watch it at home. But we all know that the best way to enjoy the art of cinematography is on the big screen._______________
What about you? What annoys you about other people at the cinema?
38. Why does the writer enjoy going to the cinema?
A. It makes him feel like being at home.
B. It gives him a moment to stay away from real life
C. He prefers watching the films on big screens.
D. He wants to enjoy the cinematic experience.
39. What is considered by Simon to be the rudest at a cinema?
A. Using mobile phones. B. Chatting to their friends.
C. Taking the shoes off D. Having drinks and eating popcorn
40."__________"is the best sentence to fill in the blank in Paragraph 7?
A. Don’ t break the rules B. Manners are important!
C. Just stay at home! D. It's your choice!
41. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage?
A. Popular Cinemas B. A Serious problem
C. Cinema Manners D. An Unpleasant Experience.
① My little sister is spoilt(宠坏的). She has Dad wrapped around her finger. If I had done or said some of the things that she does when I was her age, I would have been in big trouble. Not her- she's Daddy’s girl. She’s three.

It is now much more pleasant to go into a pub or a 59 (餐馆). Before that, pubs were filled with smoke which made you cough and made your hair and clothes 60 (发出气味). However, 61 (最近), a study shows that 16% of the bar and pub owners are upset to notice a drop in business, because smokers prefer killing time at home and 62 (很少地) go out for a drink.

Thanks for your email. Sorry I haven't written sooner. You want to know how we have fun here in China, anyway, we teenagers have different ways to enjoy ourselves, like playing sports, playing video games, and watching movies or TV, etc.
As a basketball fan since childhood, the most interesting thing for me is playing basketball with my friends after a day's study in the classroom. We almost play every day, competing, talking and laughing, making it the most enjoyable and relaxing moment. Besides, I often watch basketball games on TV. A close game between two teams always make me excited and sometimes wild with joy. I think it's helpful for both the body and mind.
Expecting your great pictures!
