“One person’s here because they want to learn not to be so serious．”Michelle said．“Another's here to learn to be more confident．”She explained that most of the classes were planned．However，Joni added that while the planned activities were fun，it was often the spontaneous(自发的)moments that attracted students．“It’s the things you don’t plan for，the sharing between friends and learning from each other．’’

“Decha! Come over, we need someone who knows what they’re doing in goal!” I yelled.
“I can’t! I have to do something/’ he shouted hack, as he continued to walk down the dusty road. The village shops were in the other direction and, as far as I knew, this road went through the jungle.
“It won’t take long. Just half an hour! They’re killing us! It’s 3-0 already, we really need you,” I begged. It was unlike Decha to turn down a game of football.
“Where are you going anyway?” I asked as I fell into step with him.
“It’s just a …” he was looking over his shoulder at the other boys, but they weren’t paying us any attention. “You can come if you like.” he whispered. I don’t know what it was, but suddenly my interest was aroused. Decha was a football addict. I knew my friend was up to something.
“OK,” I said casually, trying to hide my curiosity.
We walked along in silence for a few minutes until we went into the jungle. The temperature dropped instantly. There were no pathways, but it was clear that someone had passed through recently.
“We need to be really quiet.” Decha warned suddenly. “We don’t want to frighten them.” He shifted a bag that I hadn’t even noticed onto his shoulder. My heart was beating wildly.
Eventually, we stopped at a pile of fallen leaves. Inside the pile, four small furry bodies lay there with their mouths wide open. Taking out some bread from his bag, Decha said, “Their mother is hurt and can’t feed herself, but she’s getting stronger every day.”

Scientists have been studying how people use money for long. Now they’re finding some theories may apply to one group of monkeys.
Researchers recently taught six monkeys how to use money. They gave the monkeys small metal disks（圆片）that could be used like cash and showed them some yummy apple pieces. The monkeys soon figured out that if they gave one of the disks to a scientist, they’d receive a piece of apple in return.
If you think that is all the monkeys can figure out, you are wrong. Two researchers, Jake and Allison, acted as apple sellers in the experiments. The monkeys were tested one at a time and had 12 disks to spend in each experiment. Jake always showed the monkeys one apple piece, while Allison always showed two pieces. But that’s not necessarily what they gave the monkeys. The number of apple pieces given for a disk was determined at random.
Experiment One: Allison showed two pieces of apples but gave both piece only half the time. The other half, she took one piece away and gave the monkey just the remaining piece. Jake, on the other hand, always gave exactly what he showed: one piece for each disk. The monkeys chose to trade more with Allison.
Experiment Two: Allison continued to sometimes gave two pieces and sometimes one piece. But now, half the time, Jake gave the one apple piece he was showing, and half the time he added a bonus. Guess what? The monkeys chose to trade more with Jake.
In the first experiment, the monkeys correctly figured out that if they traded with Allison, they’d end up with more treats. In the second one, when a monkey received two pieces from Jake, it seemed like a gain. When Allison gave the monkey only one piece instead of the two she showed, it seemed like a loss. The monkeys preferred trading with Jake because they’d rather take a chance of seeming to win than seeming to lose.
We also sometimes make silly business decisions just to avoid the feeling that we’re getting less, even when we’re not. Would you have made the same choices?
32. What conclusion might experts draw from the first experiment?
A. People are smarter in terms of finance.
B. It’s easy to teach monkeys how to trade.
C. Business theories can apply to all monkeys.
D. The monkeys show certain business sense.
33. What does “a bonus” in paragraph 5 refer to?
A. A coin. B. A chance. C. A metal disk. D. An apple piece.
34. Why did the monkeys choose to trade more with Jake in the second experiment?
A. Because they didn’t like the feeling of losing.
B. Because they get more apple pieces from Jake.
C. Because Jake always gave them two apple pieces.
D. Because the apple pieces from Jake were yummy.
35. What could be the best title for the passage?
A. Disk for Apple: Who to Trade with?
B. Shopping for Bargain: Same or different?
C. Moneky’s Business Sense: Smart or Silly?
D. People’s Business Decision: Lose or Gain?
It’s an unquestioned truth of modern life: we are starved for time. We try our best to save bits of time here and there. Add it up, and we will finally get to everything we want to do. But bits of time here and there. Add it up, and we will finally get to everything we want to do. But this idea has been completely backward. 36 We build the lives we want, and then time saves itself.
Do we really have no time? “I don’t have time, ”often means “It’s not a priority (优先事项). ”Time is highly flexible. We cannot make more time. However, time will stretch (延展)to accommodate what we choose to put into it. No one will leave the broken water heater aside. So not doing something is not a matter of lacking time;37Actually, it’s a matter of choice.
How do we treat our priorities? First, we need to figure out what our priorities are. Actually we may give ourselves a performance review. What three to five things did we do that made it so amazing? Next, we can write them into next year’s performance review. We will have a list of six to ten goals we can work on in the next year. 38
39 Scientists find a really good time to do this is Friday afternoon. Friday afternoon is what an economist might call a “low opportunity cost” time. Most of us are not sitting there on Friday afternoons saying, “I am excited to make progress toward my personal and professional priorities right now. ”But we are willing to think about what those should be. So take a little bit of time Friday afternoon, and make ourselves a three-category priority list:career, relationships, self.
It’s about looking at the whole of one’s time and seeing where the good aspects can go. There is time. 40 And when we focus on what matters, we can build the lives we want in the time we’ve got.
A. it’s that I’m too busy for it.
B. it’s that I don’t want to do it.
C. When do we plan our priorities?
D. Make sure there’s time for the important things.
E. We don’t build the lives we want by saving time.
F. Even if we are busy, we have time for what matters.
G. And then we need to break these down into doable steps.

Hollywood filmmakers, including creators of the 1998 Disney film Mulan, will start a “discovery trip” to Mulan’s birthplace－Huangpi district in Hubei province this week.

In the 20 years since the Disney film came out, 63 (it) director Tony Bancroft hasn't been to the land of Mulan's roots. “For me, it’s a full circle tour of 64 my favorite character was born. I’m also doing my homework for the next film,” he said.
“China used to be closed off to Westerners, thus 65 (create) a mystery, but in the last few years, U.S. films 66 (explore) the Chinese culture and environment, which has opened audiences to a whole new world. I believe the tale of Mulan appeals to Westerners mainly 67 it’s about a daughter’s respect for her family, 68 (especial) her father.” Bancroft added.
A live-action remake of the 1998 film 69 (expect) to hit theaters in 2019. The Walt Disney Studios has announced that Chinese actress Liu Yifei, also 70 (know) as Crystal Liu, is going to star in the classic Chinese tale.

I’m Li Hua, a Senior 3 student from China. Interested in the position advertised on your website, I’m now writing to apply for it.
As far as I am concerned, teaching Chinese is a good way for me to communicate with foreign
friends. Besides, I can introduce Chinese culture to children in England, which will surely promote the understanding between the two nations.
I am confident to perform well in the job. Firstly, I am fluent in Chinese and English as well.
Additionally, I am cooperative and creative in my work, which I believe will give me an advantage over other applicants.
Working for the Confucius Classroom has always been my dream, so I’d appreciate it if you
take me into consideration.
