Some Things You Should Try Before You Are 18
Are you bored with your daily life? Here are some things you should try before you are 18, because __56___ that it’s too late.
Learn to swim :
Seriously, this is so important that it can save your life. If you can’t swim well, you _____57_____ be able to do water sports like water-skiing , surfing and diving. Even taking a boat trip will be ____58____ for you. Make sure you do it.
Try at least one kind of team sport .
______59_____ a good team player is an important skill in life. You can't just think of ______60_____, but have to work ___61___ with other people. Other advantages of team sports like basketball, football and baseball are that they keep you fit and healthy, and they are also great fun. Teams usually have a good social life too-you’ll go to lots of parties and make many friends.

Gone are the days when men and women couldn’t associate (交往) with each other. When we are asked whether boys and girls can associate with each other, most of us will say, “ Yes, of course. Why not ? ”
If we want to deal with the association between boys and girls properly, here are some “do and don’t ” for you to follow.
One : Keep a normal and healthy state of mind (心态) . Our schools and classes are made up of boys and girls. It is very natural for boys and girls to contact (接触，联系) each other and build up the friendship with the students of the other sex (性别) . Generally speaking, we should broaden (扩大) the circle of the association. We should make as many friends as possible. We should have more friends of the other sex instead of one or two. We should contact the students in public instead of in secret.
Two : Contact students of the other sex warmly, generously and sincerely (真诚地). Don’t be too nervous or too shy in contact with a person of the other sex. In that case it is very difficult for you to make a lot of friends, as no one likes a person who is too shy to say a word. If you are too shy a person, you can also find a way out. First of all, you can contact the students with the same interest and hobby with you. As both of you have much in common, you may have much to talk about. If you keep doing like that, little by little, you will gladly find you are also as free to express yourself as others.
Three : Don’t fall into the ditch (泥潭) of early love. The boys and girls at adolescence(青春期) are rich in feeling and full of imagination. They are easy to regard the friendship as a sign of love and fall in love with each other at an early age. In my opinion, boys and girls at middle school are too young and too tender (年幼的) to shoulder (承担责任) the heavy duty of love. Early love is a green apple that can’t be eaten. An apple won’t taste sweet until it is fully ripe (成熟).Do keep out of early love
66.Is it natural for boys and girls to build up friendship with the students of the other sex?_________ .
67. Should boys and girls contact each other in public or in secret?______________________ .
68. If I want to make friends, but I’m too shy to say a word, what should I do?______________.
69. What does the writer think of early love?________________________________________.
70. How many tips(告诫、提示)does the writer give us?____________________________ .
(B) 任务型阅读 （10分）根据短文内容，完成下面的表格。
Have you ever met anyone of your age from America? Do you think you would have a lot in common with middle school students there?
With only one look, you can see lots of differences. For example, classes in American schools are smaller than yours. Most classes have no more than 30 students. Most students in the US don’t wear school uniforms. And they don’t have group exercise each day as the way you do. If they say your exercises, they would think you were very strange.
In fact, Chinese students and American students have very different lives.
What’s the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning? It’s probably your lessons at school. Chinese students are very hard-working, always under lots of stress from their parents and teachers. Chinese students study hard at night, and sometimes even on the weekend because their exams are very important.
For Chinese students, school is life, but not for American students. They don’t have to worry about passing exams all the time, so they can spend time doing things they enjoy. Kids do different things for fun, like playing sports, making music or surfing the Web.
Many American teachers think that just studying hard isn’t enough to make a good student. They encourage students to become well rounded by trying lots of different things.
Differences US China
Classes Smaller, not more than 30 students 71
Uniforms 72 Wear uniforms
Lessons Not the only important thing Very important, school is life
Stress Not much 73
Free time 74 play sports,make music or surf the Web Not much free time ;
75 Even on weekends

We are all busy talking about and using the Internet. But how many of us know the history of the Internet?
At first the Internet was only used by the government . 84. But in the early 1970s , universities, hospitals and banks are allowed to use it , too . However, computers were still very expensive and the Internet was difficult to use. By the start of the 1990’s, computers became cheaper and easier to use. Scientists had also developed software that made “surfing” the Internet more convenient.
85.Today it is easy to use the Internet and sending e-mail is more and more popular among students.
