I suffered from mental illness and depression when I was younger, and it totally affected my teenage years. But after a long struggle, I found a hobby that changed my life.
My depression really kicked in after my parents moved to the UK when I was about 11 years old. Having to get used to life in a foreign country was very difficult. The friends I knew were gone, and the changes in my environment led to my depression. I had problems in many parts of my life, which made it feel impossible for me to carry on.
At that time, I didn’t understand that depression was an illness. I remember a particular day when I couldn’t find enough strength to get myself home from playing in the park—it felt like I was carrying the world on my shoulders.
Other times, I even thought about killing myself —I just felt so trapped. I never really reached out for help either, as I felt that there wasn’t anyone who could have helped with my situation.
What turned my life around, however, was discovering street dancing. I was introduced to it by a friend, and I started taking classes at a studio in London. After a few weeks, I began to go out and meet a lot of other dancers to practice and train with them on a regular basis. It gave me a purpose, and eventually the happiness I gained from it helped me manage my depression. The dancing helped me get my life back, focus on my studies, and get through university.
My advice to anyone who might be going through something like I was is to reach out for help. The thing about life is that it changes, and you never know what might come your way. If someone had said to me during those dark moments that I would have gone on to achieve the things I have, I wouldn’t have ever believed it.
Just take each day as it comes, and remember that there’s always someone, or something, out there to help you.

Recently, American President Trump announced his budget. One of the budgets would cut all funding to the Institute of Museum and Library services and libraries across the United States. However, as far as I'm concerned, we need to save our libraries.
Libraries provide books and after-school programs for children. They encourage literacy (识字）with summer programs. They help inspire a life-time love of learning and reading in children of all ages. Without them, where will kids with no Internet at home do their homework? Where will kids have a place to study or borrow books after school? Therefore, we need libraries for our kids. We need them so that kids can grow up with a place, other than school , where learning and exploration is encouraged. For adults, libraries serve as a place where they can use the Internet to apply for jobs, get job training, early voting centers as well as book clubs to help make new friends. It can also serve as a place to pick up a book and learn something new. What’s more，they can also borrow a book and get away from it all.
Libraries save our information for the next generation. When we live in an age of alternative (选择性的）facts, where science is ignored in favor of personal feelings, we need libraries now more than ever. We need them to educate ourselves on the facts and hold the government responsible for them. We need them to have strong public participation(参与).
If you agree with me，you shouldn’t be silent on this issue. You can write or call directly to tell the president to save our libraries. You can also write to both your state Senators (参议员）and your district representative. If you do not know who they are, you can find out here. Let them know this is a beneficial issue because all people use public libraries in their daily life.
28. The author thinks that Trump’s decision about his budget is___________.
A. difficult B. practical C. personal D. wrong
29. Unlike kids, adults use libraries to ________.
A. surf the Internet B. borrow some books
C. do social activities D. explore the world
30. Which statement about libraries does the author agree with?
A. Libraries play a more important role nowadays.
B. Information can be stored in libraries forever.
C. Government needs libraries more than before.
D. Science should be learned in our libraries.
31. What is the author's purpose of writing the last paragraph?
A. To call on us to disagree with the government’s decision.
B. To call on us to fight with the American president.
C. To encourage us to talk about the issue.
D. To persuade us to agree with his viewpoints.
The noise of chattering mouths settled down as the teacher entered classroom. “Good morning class. I am Riffat Monaf, and I will be your geography teacher.” Riffat Monaf, an interesting name and an even more interesting person. Her introduction took place about six years ago, and since then I have never met a more influential person in my life.
Mrs Monaf not only conquered me with her vast knowledge of geography, but also won me over with her smile and warm eyes. It was in her class that I traveled to the highest mountains and to the deepest seas from the comfort of the classroom. I learned about the vast oceans, the erupting volcanoes（火山）, the snow-capped mountains and the green valleys. She would often relate her adventures about traveling to different parts of the world.
Never can I forget the joy of her face when she talks about how truly beautiful this world is. If I search back my love for the environment and geography, I find her to be the source of my love for preserving nature. If one day I became an environmentalist, I know that I’ll thank her for it. Apart from this, she has always greeted me with open arms and she calls her students “my children”. Mrs Monaf’s morals and values rubbed off me deeply and I have always taken her advice into consideration. She has been one of the most consistently good things in my life.
At present, she is fighting a battle against breast cancer, and it pains me to know that after all she has done for me; I can do nothing for her except pray. Whenever I see her in school, she still keeps that kind smile and an expression so soft that it touches me deeply. Mrs Monaf still talks happily about geography, and I know that I can never see what a truly great person she has been in my life. .
32. What can we learn from the second paragraph?
A. Mrs Monaf enjoyed telling stories. B. The writer traveled a lot.
C. Mrs Monaf was a learned person. D. The writer did well at school.
33. The underlined word “rubbed off” means .
A. moved. B. influenced C. defeated D. shocked
34. What do we know from the last paragraph?
A. Praying for Mrs. Monaf made the writer tremble.
B. Another great person may appear in my life.
C. Mrs. Monaf was an optimistic person.
D. Breast cancer made Mrs. Monaf upset.
35. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. An Influential Person in My Life B. Brave Fight Against Breast Cancer
C. The Teacher-student Friendship D. My Interesting School Life

Fast food is becoming more and more popular in China, especially among children and teenagers.
There are several reasons for its popularity. First, it is very convenient and saves a lot of time. Second, you can either eat it there or take it away. Third, the environment of fast food restaurants is both clean and comfortable.
However, in terms of nutrition, fast food is far from satisfactory. It is usually not a balanced diet and low in nutritional value.
Fast food is only a good choice when you are in a hurry and turn to it once in a while. It's good for people, especially children, to eat fast food as little as possible.
