Almost everyone is learning English, but most people can’t study it well enough to use it.

How do we study English? Here are some ideas. They may help you to learn the English language

well!

________________

For most people, the biggest problem in learning a new language is their own fear(恐 惧 ).

They worry about that they won’t say things correctly or that they will look silly so they don’t talk

at all. Don’t do this. If you want to be successful, you must practice speaking it again and again

until you get it right. Don’t let a little fear stop you.

Surround Yourself With English

Surround yourself with English. Put English books around your room, listen to English

language radio, watch English news, movies and television. Speak English with your friends

whenever you can. The more English things that you have around you, the faster you will learn.

______________________

As long as you have some free time, you should try to look at something about English.

______________________

Many people think that exercises and tests aren’t very interesting. However, by finishing

exercises and taking tests you can really make your English better.

September 10 is a day for us to say “thank you” to teachers. But next year we might do it on

another day. Maybe we will move Teachers’ Day to September 28, which is believed to be the

birthday of Confucius (551-479BC).

Chinese people started to celebrate(庆 祝 ) Teachers’ Day in 1985. There was no special

reason why people choose September 10 to celebrate. But many people think it is not a good

choice. Teachers are always too busy on September 10 because the new term starts at the

beginning of the month. If the day is at the end of September, it will be near the National Day and

teachers can enjoy the two holidays together. Besides, people think Teachers’ Day should fall on a

day with special historical and cultural(文化的) meaning. That’s why someone thinks it’s good to

choose September 28 as Teachers’ Day.[来源:学,科,网 Z,X,X,K]

Confucius was a famous thinker in Chinese history. He told us to love our family and to be

polite to our parents and grandparents. More importantly, Confucius started China’s private(私人

的) education system(教育体制). Chinese people think he was the best teacher in old days.

In an online survey on www.sina.com, 65% of people said “yes” to the change as of

September 10. But 31% said “no” to it. They thought it was nothing but formalism (形式主义) .

Zhang Feiran, 13, from Changsha, Hunan gave his teachers cards as presents on September

10. “To me, it doesn’t matter which day is Teachers’ Day. It’s just a day for me to say ‘thanks’ to

teachers,” he said.

11. In which year did Chinese people start to celebrate Teachers’ Day on September 10?

A. In 1983.

B. In 1984.

C. In 1985.

D. In 1986.

12. Why do people want to celebrate Teachers’ Day on September 28?

A. September 28 is at the end of a new term.

B. September 28 has a special cultural meaning.

C. September 28 is near the National Day holiday.

D. B and C.

13. Which of the following may NO T be mentioned in the passage?

A. Confucius was born on September 28, 551BC.

B. Confucius told people to love and care for their family.
