In my profession as an educator and health care provider, I have worked with numerous children infected with the virus that causes AIDS.The relationships that I have had with these special kids have been gifts in my life.They have taught me so many things, but I have especially learned that great courage can be found in the smallest of packages. Let me tell you about Tyler.
Tyler was born infected with HIV: his mother was also infected.From the very beginning of his life, he was dependent on medications to enable him to survive.When he was five, he had a tube surgically inserted in a vein in his chest.This tube was connected to a pump, which he carried in a small backpack on his back.M edications were hooked up to this pump and were continuously supplied through this tube to his bloodstream.At times, he also needed supplemented oxygen to support his breathing.
Tyler wasn’t willing to give up one single moment of his childhood to this deadly disease.It was not unusual to find him playing and racing around his backyard, wearing his medicine - laden backpack and dragging his tank of oxygen behind him in his little wagon.All of us who knew Tyler marveled at his pure joy in being alive and the energy it gave him.Tyler’s mom often teased him by telling him that he moved so fast she needed to dress him in red.That way, when she peered through the window to check on him playing in the yard, she could quickly spot him.
This dreaded(可怕的) disease eventually wore down even the likes of a little dynamo like Tyler.He grew quite ill and, unfortunately, so did his HIV - infected mother.When it became apparent that he wasn’t going to survive, Tyler’s mom talked to him about death.She comforted him by telling Tyler that she was dying too, and that she would be with him soon in heaven.
A few days before his death, Tyler beckoned me over to his hospital bed and whispered, " I might die soon.I’m not scared.When I die, please dress me in red.Mom promised she’s coming to heaven, too.I’ll be playing when she gets there, and I want to make sure she can find me."

magician, Liu Qian, discovered it, in front         
of an audience of millions at CCTV’ s Spring

 Witnessing something impossible happen right before your eyes is the root of people’ s love for magic.
 Liu is known for his interaction(互动)with his audiences. He has a unique understanding of showmanship(演出技巧).
“It’ s actually thinking rather than one’ s manipulation(操作)skills; that is more important to achieving a successful magic show. We think carefully about how to design the shows creatively, to make them appear more interesting.  ”Liu said.

Yet, Liu never planned on becoming a professional magician. He studied Japanese literature at university and only hoped to be an amateur  (业余的) magician in his spare time. However, his failure to find a proper job after graduation pushed him towards magic as a career.
    To refine his performing skills, he has performed on streets, roads and fields for passers-by, policemen and farmers.
     “Street shows are the biggest challenge for us magicians. We have to deal with unexpected situations and tough crowds, ” Liu said.

UNICEF is appealing for more than one billion dollars in aid for women and children around the world.The United Nations Children's Fund has released its " Humanitarian Action Report" for two thousand ten. The report lists twenty -eight countries and territories with some of the world's most pressing crisis affecting women and children.
Haiti was considered to be in crisis long before  the earthquake in January.The deputy executive director of UNICEF, Hilde Johnson, says the quake has only made the need for aid more immediate.But she says children all over the world have the right to the same assistance as children everywhere else.
The "Humanitarian Action Report" discusses several issues that UNICEF says increasingly threaten the basic rights of women and children.It says climate change has caused droughts and' food insecurity in many areas.High food prices and the global financial crisis of two thousand eight - two thousand nine have only added to poverty and malnutrition ( 营养不良).And armed conflict continues to threaten the lives of millions.
Hilde Johnson says children are always the most affected by conflicts and disasters.They face an increased risk of abuse, including sexual violence and other serious rights violations (侵犯).
UNICEF deals with about t wo hundred emergencies around the world every year.The greatest need last year was in sub - Saharan Africa.The report says drought, food insecurity and civil unrest affected about twenty - four million p eople.
Violence and displacements( 驱逐)of people were especially bad in Sudan, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic.
In Asia, UNICEF expects its financial assistance needs to more than double this year.This is partly the result of adding Pakistan and the Philippines to the latest report.In Pakistan, it says, more than two million people have been forced from their homes by the conflict in the.Swat Valley and other areas of the northwest.And in the Philippines, more than two hundred thousand people are still living in shelters after severe storms last year.
This years UNICEF report talks about the value of public and private partnerships in helping children and families in emergencies.
And thats the VOA Special English Development Report, written by June Simms.For a link to the UNICEF report listing the twenty - eight countries and territories in crisis, go to www.unsv.com.I'm Steve Ember.

Why do we go to college?
Nowadays, going to university has played a most important role in our life. However, different people have different views on why we go to college.
  Some students, who have many dreams, regard colleges as the most ideal places to realize their dreams. Some also think colleges provide good chances for those who are eager to learn more knowledge so that they can serve their motherland better in the future. Furthermore, others think that good jobs and higher pay will certainly result from a college education.
  In my opinion, going to college will not only lay a firm foundation for our careers in the future, but fulfill our parents' dearest wish. So it's a must for us to go to college.

W: That’s the problem. I want to see films, I want to visit parks and I want to sleep 12 hours a day, but there isn’t enough time.
M: The entrance Exam is still three months away. Don’t worry. You will succeed.
W: Everybody in my school is busy with study, study and study, I am afraid I’ll fall behind them if I relax.
M: But sometime you should have a rest, or you will be too worn out.
W: I can’t help it. Thank you anyway. It’s time for me to review my geography. After all, I am longing to attend an ideal college.

M: My friend Tony was absent from school for three days.
W: What’s up with him?
M: He was at an Internet café playing computer games.
W: Oh, my god! How did you find out?
M: He lied to his parents that he went to school and lied to our teacher saying he was ill at home. Our teacher called his parents and found out the truth.
W: Where is he now? Is he at school?
M: Yeah. Our teacher and his parents are discussing the matter together.
W: I think he shouldn’t have done that. After all, there are so many more important things to do.
M: I agree. I think the government should do something to prevent teenagers from going to Internet café.
W: I think we high school students should do something more instructive and interesting.
M: You are absolutely right.

W: Sure. Will it be one-way or round-trip?
M: Oh, I probably should buy a round-trip ticket now, since I’ll be coming back tomorrow  W: I doubt it.
M: Why? You are kidding! You know, she loves watching the sea.
W; But yesterday afternoon she told me that she would go home this Saturday.
M; What happened?
W: She said that her mother was ill and stayed in hospital, and therefore she wanted to go home to see her.
M; I am sorry to hear that. Well, maybe we could have a picnic on the beach. What do you think? Should we take some food?
W; That sounds great. Okay, then let’s take some sandwiches, chips, and uh… some salad as well.
M; We should also take some drinks like Coke and beer.
W: Good. In addition, we had better pack beach towels and sun cream.
M: Okay. Please don’t forget to give me a call and let’s go down together.

In order to have a good understanding of foreign languages, four things are necessary. First, you must understand the language when you hear it spoken. Second, you must be able to speak it correctly and fluently. Third, you must be able to read the language and fourth, you must be able to write sentences that are grammatically correct.
There is no easy way to be successful in language learning. A good memory will be of great help, but it alone is not enough to memorize grammar rules or words. “Learning through use” is a good piece of advice for those who are studying a new language. Practice is very important, for as you all know, practice makes perfect. You must practice speaking and writing the language whenever you can.
In addition to this, you should listen to songs or watch movies in the language. You should force yourself to listen carefully to these movies or songs so that your listening ability can improve quickly. To enlarge your vocabulary, the best way is to read novels. At the same time, it is important that you have confidence in your reading ability. From my own experience, reading such books makes me more interested in the language and makes me want to learn more about it.
