On my recent trip to Sydney with my parents, we visited the Wildlife Park.
The Wildlife Park has lots of different animals and birds. Some are native（当地的） to Australia and can only be found there. There are over 600 animals there, including kangaroos, koalas and crocodiles（鳄鱼）. They are kept in their natural environment. I like the Wildlife Park better than a zoo where most of the animals are in cages（笼子）.
We first spent some time with the kangaroos. We were allowed to touch and feed them. It was very exciting to be so close to them. There were koalas there too. They looked very cuddly（令人想拥抱的）. Although we were not allowed to carry them, I got to take a photo with one. It is a wonderful souvenir（纪念品） of my holiday in Sydney.
The Wildlife Park has plenty of freshwater and saltwater crocodiles. Some of them are really big and scary（吓人的） with huge teeth! I did not want to get too close to them.
There was also a bird show. The keepers showed us different species（种类） they had. I saw an old parrot which coul d “talk”. It made a great impression on me.
I enjoyed the trip very much. There was so much to see.

Some people seem to have unusual memories. Zheng Aiqiang, a “memory athlete” on TV show Super Brain, can remember 2,660 numbers in just one hour!
You would think people like him must have special brains. But according to a recent study by researchers from America and Holland, the brain structure（结构） of ordinary people and 23 of the world’s leading memory athletes shows no difference.
Good memories can be trained. New research in the magazine Neuron suggests that a person will get a super memory with just six weeks of hard training.
Researchers found that a technique（技巧） called loci, invented by the ancient Greeks, can greatly help improve memory.
By using loci, you are using your imagination to improve the brain’s memory networks. You can link（关联） something you need to remember with a place that you know very well. For example, to remember a list of numbers, imagine yourself walking through your house. Each thing is linked to a number. For example, zero could be the handle on the door and five could be the painting on the wall.
Loci is a good technique which can greatly help improve memory. In one study, some ordinary people were given 20 minutes to remember 72 nouns. At the beginning, they could only remember 26 words, but when they were taught loci, they could remember 62 words.
“Not everyone can become a memory winner. But everyone using the technique can improve his memory greatly,” said Boris Konrad, one of the researchers in the study.
26.From the recent study, we know that ordinary people and memory athletes have similar .
27.To memorize a list of numbers by using loci means you are using your to link it with a place you know well according to the passage.
28.How soon will a person get a super memory through hard training according to the magazine Neuron?
