Crossing the river to school
How do you get to school? Do you walk or ride a bike? Do you go by bus or by train?
For many students , it’s easy to get to school. But for the students in one small village in China,
it is difficult . There is a very big river between their school and the river . There is no bridge and the river runs too quickly for boats. So these students go on a ropeway to cross the river to school .One 11-year-old boy, Liangliang, crosses the river every school day. But he is not afraid because he loves school. "I love to play with my classmates. And I love my teacher. He’s like a
father to me.〞 Many of the students and villagers never leave the village. It is their dream to have a bridge. Can their dream come true?

Hello. We are students from Thailand, and we want to save the elephants. The elephant is one of Thailand's symbols. Our first flag had a white elephant on it. This is a symbol of good luck.
Elephants are smart animals. They can play soccer or music. They can also draw very well. People say that"an elephant never forgets〞. Elephants can walk for a long time and never gets lost. They can also remember places with food and water. This helps them to live.But elephants are in great danger. People cut down many trees so elephants are losing their homes. People also kill elephants for their ivory. Today there are only about 3000 elephants (over 100,000 before). We must save the trees and not buy things made of ivory. Remember that March 13th is Thai Elephant Day.

I live near a supermarket. My parents usually shop there. There is a big park across from the supermarket. I often exercise at the park because I love the clean air and sunshine. The best things in life are free!
To get to the park, you just have to cross Center Street.
I live in a noisy neighborhood. There is a post office between my house and a clothes store. But my favorite place is the library. It is very quiet and I enjoy reading there. When I read books, time goes quickly!

An interesting job
Joe Brown has a very interesting job. He is a police artist. Some people see crimes and then talk to Joe. They tell him what the criminal looks like. Then Joe draws a picture of the criminal, and the police put it in newspapers and on television to find him.
He wants to draw a good picture of each criminal, but this job is sometimes difficult. Many people don't always see things the same way so they may describe the same person differently. Also, they don't always remember well. "The criminal is of medium height and young. He has long straight brown hair and big eyes,’’says one woman. Another woman says,"He is tall and thin, and he has curly blond hair. He 's about thirty years old.”In the end, the real criminal is a short and heavy old man, and he has short black hair!

Tom: Yes, that’s right.
Birthday food around the world
What would people like to eat on their birthday? The answer would be different in different countries.
In many countries, people have birthday cakes with candles. The number of candles is the person's age. The birthday person must make a wish and blow out the candles. If he or she blows out all the candles in one go, the wish will come true. In the UK, people sometimes put a candy in a birthday cake. The child with the candy is lucky. In China, it is getting popular to have cake on your birthday. But many people still eat very long noodles are symbol of long life. In some places, Chinese people also eat eggs on their birthday. They are a symbol of life and good luck.
All of these birthday foods may be different, but the ideas are the same. They bring good luck to the birthday person.
Unit 11 How was your school trip?
Peter: Hi, Eric. How was your trip last week?

Peter: Sounds good. How was the weather there?
Eric: It was great, and the air was so clean. I watched the stars at night. They were so beautiful.
Peter: Lucky you.
Today I went on a school trip. We visited the science museum and it was really interesting. We got there so fast by train. We saw some farms and villages along the way. At the museum, I learned a lot about robots. I didn't know they could play chess with us. It was so cool! Then the guide taught us how to make a model robot. I took a lot of great photos, too. After that, I went to the gift shop and bought some lovely gifts for my parents. They weren't expensive. All in all, it was an exciting day.
I think today's school trip was terrible. We took the train to the museum. It was so hot on the slow train. The museum was big and boring. Everything was about robots and I'm not interested in that. The rooms were really dark and it was difficult to take photos, so I didn't take any. There were also too many people and I couldn’t really see or hear the guide. The things in the gift shop were so expensive. I didn't like the trip at all.
Unit 12 What did you do last weekend?
Paul: Hi, Lisa. How was your weekend?
Lisa: Great, thanks.
Paul: What did you do?
Lisa: I worked as a guide at the Natural History Museum.
Paul: Really? How interesting!
Lisa: Yeah, it was fun. They have a butterfly house with over 200 kinds of butterflies!
I told the visitors about them and their living habits. Did you have a good weekend? Paul: Yeah, it was good, but I'm kind of tired now. I stayed up late to watch the soccer game. A weekend to remember .My sister finished high school two weeks ago. As a special gift, our parents took us to India. Last weekend was interesting but scary.We went camping in a small village in India. First, we took a long bus ride to a lake in the countryside. There we put up our tents and made a fire to keep us warm and cook food on. On the first night, we just sat under the moon and told each other stories. But I was so tired that I went to sleep early.
The next morning, my sister and I got terrible surprise. When we looked out of our tent, we saw a big snake sleeping near the fire. I was so scared that I couldn't move. We shouted to our parents to let them know about the danger. My dad started to jump up and down in their tent. This woke the snake up and it moved into the forest near the lake. My dad told me later that snakes don't have ears but can feel things moving. He also told me it was important not to go near a snake. This was a very useful lesson for me.
