One day a student was walking with a teacher and they noticed a pair of old shoes. They thought the shoes might belong to a farmer. The owner of the shoes was working in a field nearby and had nearly finished his work. The student said to the teacher, ―Let’s play a joke on the man. We hide his shoes, and wait to see what he will do when he cannot find them.‖ ―My young friend, ‖ answered the teacher, ―we should never make fun of others. Instead, put a coin into each shoe, and watch what will happen.‖ The student did so, and hid nearby. The farmer soon came back to get his shoes, but when he put his foot int o one of his shoes and felt something hard, he found the coin. Surprise appeared on his face. He looked at the coin, and then looked aro und, but no person was to be seen. He then began to put on the other shoe, but surprised was doubled on finding the second coin. He then fell on his knees, looked up to heaven and said aloud thanks. In the thanks he spoke of his wife who was in poor health, and his children wit hout bread.

The student stood there silent, his eyes filled with tears. ―Now,‖ said the t eacher, ―are you not much more pleased than if you had played your joke?‖ The young man replied, ―You’ve taught me a lessen which I will never fo rget. I’ve really got the true meaning of the words that I have never understoo d before: It’s better to give than to receive.‖ 49. The old shoes belonged to _____.

When it was her own money, she felt they were too expensive, after all.‖ That story well explains why kids should have some money of their own – not for lunch or movies, but for the things that they dream of. Because they don’t really understand what it means to pay $100 for a pair of trousers until it’s their $100. ―Kids get excited about receiving money because it gives them the chance to decide what to buy,‖ says Lana, a manager of the Yonge and Eglinton CIB C in Toronto. ―Kids are interested in money, which means there is a need for parents to teach them.‖ If kids are given some money a week or a month, it will do them good, b ecause they will learn how to use money. But Lana has other suggestions: Help them plan. ―If there’s a big-ticket item your child wants,‖ says Lana, ―help him plan how long it will take him to save enough money for that, an d how much he should save each week.‖ Help them earn.

But in Asia if you don’t take off your shoes before entering a home, yo u are not polite enough. What You Should Do Instead: If you see a row of shoes at the door, tak e off your shoes. If not, keep the shoes on. Talking Over Dinner In some countries, like Japan, don’t start talking while everyone else is ha ving dinner. You’ll meet with silence—not because your group is unfriendly, b ut because mealtimes are for eating, not talking. Also don’t talk in places like churches in Europe. What You Should Do Instead: Keep quiet! Knowing Your Right from Your Left Some countries in Africa and Middle East still like to eat in traditional w ays—using their hands. When people eat in this way, food is often offered for several people to share at the same time. That is why it’s important to wash your hands before eating. While eating, you have to follow the rule: Eat usin g your right hand, and use your left hand to do other things. Another thing to remember: Eat the food that’s closest to you. Do not put your hand into the center of the table. What You Should Do Instead: Left-handed? Even children who are left-ha nded in these cultures are taught to eat with their right hands. So follow the o thers and use your right hand. If you really can’t, explain yourself to others b efore you eat. When you are on the ground of a different country, watch how the people there behave.

It flew at a speed of 70 km/h at a height of 1 , 200 meters in the sky above Switzerland for 87 minutes. It is the first solar-powered plane in the world. A group of engineers, led by Bertrand Pic-card, a well-known pilot, made this plane. The solar-powered plane is different from the planes that we usually see. The plane has a thin

body with two very big wings full of solar cells. It uses sunlight as its energy, but it was not easy to make such a plane.

It should also be strong enough to hold its body to fly in the sky. They used the strongest and lightest materials to build the plane. It weighed 1 , 600 kg and only needed the power of a small car. After this successful flight , Bertrand Piccard said , " The airplane has landed but we have not yet landed. " Their next step is to have a non-stop flight around the world by 2013. Before they can do that, they will have to work out how the plane can store enough energy during the day and keep flying at night.

Children refused to play games with me. It made me very sad. I always walked, looking at the floor, so that people would not see the ugly face. My mother encouraged me to be brave. She told me, "Alice, hold your head up high and face the world. If you do, it will be OK, and people will see your beautiful soul . " Mom's words meant different things to me over the years. As a little child , I thought Mom meant , " Be careful or you will fall down. " When I grew up, I still wanted to look down to hide my shame. She repeated these words whenever I wanted to hide.

In 2003, APOPO, a Dutch research com pan y that uains the an imals, came up with the-idea of s\ng rats to search for the mines. The animal trainers ‘found that a kind of rats from Africa were clever and had.a sharp* sense of smell.

When the rats could do it, the click was sounded and they were given a bit of banana. The method was called clicker training. “The training isn’t easy, said trainer Abdullah Mchomvu. “You have to be patient. Sometimes I get angry, but then again, I tell myself these are animals.” After nine months’ training, the rats were taken to a minefiel 山 They’ran across the minefield, stopped, sat and scratched the ground to tell the deminers* that they smelt out’a mine.

At the age of 17, Jack entered the finals of the Pineline Masters – the world’s most famous surfing competition. Everyone thought Jack would become a professional surfing like his father. Unluckily, one month later, he had a deadly accident while surfing and was seriously hurt. Life is like a revolving door. When it closes, it also opens. Jack started to practice playing the guitar and write songs when he was staying in hospital. At first, his father thought Jack only did it for fun, but soon he was surprised at the great progress his son had made. When studying in the university, Jack didn’t stop practicing his guitar skills. He played the guitar for school parties. He wrote songs and sang for his teachers and friends. They liked his songs.

Lots of stores and supermarkets sell DIY things. TV proprammes show people how to DIY. English people like DIY. There is a saying in UK – “An Englishman’s home is his castle”. Huge numbers of people spend their holidays making their homes beautiful “castles”. If there is anything that needs fixing around their houses, such as painting the walls or putting in a new shower, they will do the jobs themselves. They share DIY experiences with their friends. More and more people have discovered the joy of DIY. Sometimes people also DIY for saving money. With the economic downturn at present, many people can not afford to buy a bigger house. They are looking at how they can make their house better without spending a lot of money. It is not surprising that DIY is so popular. DIY can be difficult. There is a huge market for DIY furniture which people need to put together themselves with a few basic tools. However, people often find it not easy to build a piece of furniture because they can’t understand the instructions. Sometimes the instructions are simple and clear, but the furniture itself is difficult to build. One thing is for sure, though most DIY projects are started with the best intentions, many of them may not get finished. DIY can also be dangerous. For example, anything electrical should be done by a professional worker. Unluckily, many people don’t care about this warning and put themselves in danger. It is reported that in just one year over 230,000 people were hurt while doing DIY in UK, including 41,000 who fell off ladders. Therefore, DIY can bring us fun and help us save money, but it is not always as easy as it is thought to be if we bite off more than we can chew. Maybe factories should make products that are easier and safer for us to DIY. 37. How do many English people spend their holidays according to the passage? A. Making their homes beautiful. B.

Novels written by the writers like Jane Austen, Victor Hugo and Ernest Hemingway help us to know more about our hi story, culture and many other things. Jane Austen was one of the most well-known women writers of the world. She was born in England in 1775. Jane loved reading and writing. She wrote a number of famous novels in her life. Among them, Pride and Prejudice written in 1779 was the most popular. Victor Hugo, born in 1802 in France, was one of the best writers in the19th century. The talent in writing and hard work brought great success to Hugo at an early age. His most popular novel, the Hunchback of Notre-Dame, was written in 1831. The book was so successful that it was quickly translated into many other languages across Europe. Ernest Hemingway, an outstanding American writer and reporter, was born in 1899. His life experience had a great influence on his writing style. Hemingway lived in France and Italy between the 1920s and 1950s. Most of his books such as The Sun Also Rises were written at that time. He won the Nobel Prize in 1954 mainly because of the novel The Old Man and the Sea. 26. When was Jane Austen born? A. In 1775 B. In 1799 C. In 1802 D. In 1899 27. Where was Victor Hugo from? A. England. B. America. C. Italy. D. France. 28. Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize mainly because of _________. A. The Hunchback of Notre-Dame B. Pride and Prejudice C. The Old man and the Sea D. The Sun Also Rises B Frogs are animals that can live both in water and on land. There are more than 5,000 kinds of frogs on the earth. The earliest known frogs lived about 190 million years ago and the frogs today still look the same. Here are some fun things that you mi ght not know about frogs. Enjoy! The Biggest and the Smallest Frogs Some frogs can be very big. The biggest kind of frog is the Goliath Frog in West Africa. Its body can be nearly 30cm long, about the size of a large cat. The Gold Frog and the Poison Frog are the smallest frogs in the world. They are less than 1cm long. Though the Poison Frog is very small, it is not weak at all. It is dangerous. Any animal that eats it will die very soon. The Best Jumpers Frogs are very good at jumping. They developed jumping legs so that they would not be

eaten by other large animals. Using their big strong legs, more frogs can jump over 20 times their own length. It is like a person jumping over about 30,48. The Australian Rocket Frog can even jump over 2m, which is 50 times its body length(5.5cm). That might be the reason why frogs a re called the best jumpers on the earth. The Cryogenic Animal Some frogs like the Common Wood Frog have a special ability to live in very cold places. When the temperature goes down, they become ice frogs. 2/3of their body water freezes. Their hearts stop, and their breathing stops too. You may think they are dead, but in fact they are not. Maybe we humans can learn the way that the frogs do for medical purpose.

C I grew up in New Hampshire, a small town in South Canada, where in my father’s words for the seasons were ―Spring, Summer, Fairtime and Winter!‖ At that time, a week-long fair was held in the town every autumn. Thousands of people from other towns came to sell and buy things. It was the busiest time of the year. When ―Fairtime‖ came, my grandma became the most ―useful‖ and busiest person of the family. Grandma was a kind, well-educated old lady. She was good at cooking. All her rrelatives liked the foodshe cooked. During ―fairtime‖, they would come to live in her house and have meals there. Grandma was always happy to look after them. Year after year, many people moved to big cities. There was no loner ―Fairtime‖. Grandma became very old and was gradually going blind. My parents and I moved to live with Granma in her house. We did our best to make her day-to-day life as comfortable as possible. I was at high school then. What I often did at home was to help Grandma with the daily newspaper’s crossword puzzle. However, she didn’t look happy. She often sat in her room for hours, without saying a word. To attract people to move back, the Town Hall decided to reopen the Fair. One day, when I came back room school, I saw Grandma wearing her glasses, washing the dishes in the kitchen. With a big smile on her face, she looked a lot much younger. She told me that her two nieces would come. ―They said the food I cooked was very delicious and they want to stay in my house again.‖ Grandma said happily. ―They will stay here for one week and we can have a big party.

Grandma’s Family D Text messaging, or simply ―texting‖, with allows people to send and receive messages on mobile phones, becomes very popular today. The advantages of texting are obvious. Texting helps to save money. If you have a few words to greet your families and friends on their birthdays or on some important festivals, sending messages can be cheaper than phone calling. Texting helps to save time. Even if you want to send a message to 100 people, you can do it one second. Texting helps you to ―talk‖ to someone when he is too busy to answer the phone. Texting can also help you to ―talk‖ to someone secretly if you don’t want others to hear what you are talking on the phone. These advantages are so amazing that many people are crazy about it. They hold mobile phones in hands all day long, send dozens of messages each day, and even text while driving or walking. However, texting has its disadvantages. J unk messages may come into your mobile phone box now and then. When your phone box gets too full, you can’t receive any more messages. You may therefore miss some important information. What’s more, if you don’t do texting properly, for example texting while driving or walking, it can be dangerous. It can cause injuries and even death. It was reported that about 6,000 peopl e were killed and half a million were injured for this reason each year. In Fort Lee, a small town in New Jersey, USA, three people died because they walked into traffic while texting in 2011. Two researchers at Stony Brook University, New York found that texters are 60% more probably to have an accident than others. When people are texting, they don’t notice other people or things around them. To reduce traffic accidents, all drivers of the UN are now not allowed to text while driving. About 32 countries have passed laws restricting the use of mobile phones while driving. Texting is a wonderful way of communication. However, only when we use it properly, can we fully enjoy the fun it brings. 37. How many advantages of texting are mentioned in the passage? A. Two. B. Three. C. Four. D. Five. 38.

Lake Victoria is the largest lake in Africa. It is the second largest lake in the world, too. It is an important lake because it is one of the *sources for the longest river in the world, the Nile River. Lake Victoria provides a source of water, food, and *power for several African countries. Lake Victoria is a big part of African life. Unfortunately, Lake Victoria has a problem. It is shrinking. There are several power stations at Lake Victoria in Uganda. These are on the Nile River, and besides producing power, they keep the water of the lake at a certain *level. For the past forty years, that level has been 11.9 meters. Over the last several years, the water level has dropped by about 2.5 meters. There seem to be several reasons for this drop. One possible reason is *drought. Drought has been very bad in the area since 2000. Lake Victoria gets all of its water from rain, so the drought means less water in the lake. However, some *environmentalists believe that the real problem is the power factories on Lake Victoria. Uganda depends on those power plants for most of its power, and they made the power plants larger in 2000. Many people believe the power plants have been taking too much water off Lake Victoria. As a result, they have been asked to use less water until Lake Victoria goes back to its old level. Whether the low water level is caused by drought or power plants, the result is the same. This is already a poor area of Africa, where many people live a really hard life. People, animals and

plants around Lake Victoria will *suffer even more from low water levels on the lake. Many people need Lake Victoria for fishing or growing food. Fish need the water to live, and animals need it for water. Plants around the lake will die without the water, and then more animals and people will suffer. Unless the lake fills soon, many people will suffer and die. ( )52. Lake Victoria is __________. A. the only source for the Nile River B. the largest lake in the world C. the source of water, food and power for America D. an important lake in Africa ( )53. ―It is shrinking.‖ most probably means __________. A. ―It is becoming larger‖ B. ―It is becoming more beautiful‖ C. ―It is becoming smaller‖ D. ―It is becoming more useful‖ ( )54. According to the passage, the TRUE statement is __________. A. Rain water is one of the sources for the lake B. There has been much rain in the lake area since 2000 C. The power factories in Uganda don't provide water for the lake D The power factories in Uganda were made smaller in 2000 ( )55. According to the passage, the way to solve the problems around Lake Victoria is __________. A. People must build more power factories B. More sources of water must be found C. Every country should offer some money to Africa D. All the people living in the area should move to another place

The 3-D glasses make the people and the things on the screen look like they are in the room with you. 3-D, means having three *dimensions: *width, height and *depth. 3-D technology is based on the way the human brain and eye work. Because the *pupils of a person’s eyes are about 6.5cm apart, when we look at something, each eye sees it from different *angle. Our eyes send the two pictures to our brain, and the brain puts them together. The small difference between the picture from the right eye and the picture from the left eye make us see depth. While watching 2-D films, we don’t have to wear the special glasses. We see the pictures in two dimensions, each eye get the same information. This is because there is only one way of watching it.

Our planet is covered with atmosphere (大气).Sunlight passes through the atmosphere and reaches the Earth. The Sun heats up the Earth's surface. When the heat rises into the air, it is stopped by some special gases (气体)in the atmosphere like GOz, the heat returns to the Earth and keeps it warm. Power stations and cars release (释放)so many greenhouse gases every day. So we can help stop global (全球的)warming by using less electric things such as turning off lights when we leave a room, asking our parents to turn down the heating in our house to save energy. We can also stop global warming by finding other ways of transportation. For example, ride a bicycle or walk instead of going by car, Another way to help stop global warming is to plant and care for trees.

It may take a long time to find clean energy, such as wind energy. It may take a long time to plant the trees again we are cutting down.

三、阅读理解(本题有 15 小题,每小题 2 分,共 30 分) 阅读下面短文,从每个小题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中选出最佳选项。 A ―Reading makes a full man‖ (Bacon, 1597). Novels written by the writers like Jane Austen, Victor Hugo and Ernest Hemingway help us to know more about our history, culture and many other things. Jane Austen was one of the most well-known women writers of the world. She was born in England in 1775. Jane loved reading and writing. She wrote a number of famous novels in her life. Among them, Pride and Prejudice written in 1779 was the most popular. Victor Hugo, born in 1802 in France, was one of the best writers in the19th century. The talent in writing and hard work brought great success to Hugo at an early age. His most popular novel, the Hunchback of Notre-Dame, was written in 1831. The book was so successful that it was quickly translated into many other languages across Europe. Ernest Hemingway, an outstanding American writer and reporter, was born in 1899. His life experience had a great influence on his writing style. Hemingway lived in France and Italy between the 1920s and 1950s. Most of his books such as The Sun Also Rises were written at that time. He won the Nobel Prize in 1954 mainly because of the novel The Old Man and the Sea. 26. When was Jane Austen born? A. In 1775 B. In 1799 C. In 1802 D. In 1899 27. Where was Victor Hugo from? A. England. B. America. C. Italy. D. France. 28. Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize mainly because of ______________. A. The Hunchback of Notre-Dame B. Pride and Prejudice C. The Old man and the Sea D. The Sun Also Rises B Frogs are animals that can live both in water and on land. There are more than 5,000 kinds of frogs on the earth. The earliest known frogs lived about 190 million years ago and the frogs today still look the same. Here are some fun things that you might not know about frogs. Enjoy! The Biggest and the Smallest Frogs Some frogs can be very big. The biggest kind of frog is the Goliath Frog in West Africa. Its

body can be nearly 30cm long, about the size of a large cat. The Gold Frog and the Poison Frog are the smallest frogs in the world. They are less than 1cm long. Though the Poison Frog is very small, it is not weak at all. It is dangerous. Any animal that eats it will die very soon. The Best Jumpers Frogs are very good at jumping. They developed jumping legs so that they would not be eaten by other large animals. Using their big strong legs, more frogs can jump over 20 times their own length. It is like a person jumping over about 30.48. The Australian Rocket Frog can even jump over 2m, which is 50 times its body length (5.5cm). That might be the reason why frogs are called the best jumpers on the earth. The Cryogenic Animal Some frogs like the Common Wood Frog have a special ability to live in very cold places. When the temperature goes down, they become ice frogs. 2/3of their body water freezes. Their hearts stop, and their breathing stops too. You may think they are dead, but in fact they are not. Maybe we humans can learn the way that the frogs do for medical purpose. 29. The earliest frogs lived about ______________ million years ago. A. 20 B. 30 C. 50 D. 190 30. The Gold Frog is one of the ______________ frogs on the earth. A. smallest B. biggest C. strongest D. weakest 31. ______________ can jump over 2m. A. The Goliath Frog B. The Common Wood Frog C. The Poison Frog D. The Australian Rocket Frog 32. What will happen to a Common Wood Frog at very low temperature? C. It will die very soon. B. It will be an ice frog. D. It will become dangerous. D. It will become very small. C I grew up in New Hampshire, a small town in South Canada, where in my father’s words for the seasons were ―Spring, Summer, Fairtime and Winter!‖ At that time, a week-long fair was held in the town every autumn. Thousands of people from other towns came to sell and buy things. It was the busiest time of the year. When ―Fairtime‖ came, my grandma became the most ―useful‖ and busiest person of the family. Grandma was a kind, well-educated old lady. She was good at cooking. All her relatives liked the food she cooked. During ―fairtime‖, they would come to live in her house and have meals there. Grandma was always happy to look after them. Year after year, many people moved to big cities. There was no longer ―Fairtime‖. Grandma became very old and was gradually going blind. My parents and I moved to live with Granma in her house. We did our best to make her day-to-day life as comfortable as possible. I was at high school then. What I often did at home was to help Grandma with the daily newspaper’s crossword puzzle. However, she didn’t look happy. She often sat in her room for hours, without saying a word. To attract people to move back, the Town Hall decided to reopen the Fair. One day, when I came back room school, I saw Grandma wearing her glasses, washing the dishes in the kitchen. With a big smile on her face, she looked a lot much younger. She told me that her two nieces would come. ―They said the food I cooked was very delicious and they want to stay in my house again.‖ Grandma said happily. ―They will stay here for one week and we can have a big party.

That must be the busiest week I’ve had in years!‖ I suddenly realized that Grandma didn’t want to be looked after. She wanted to be ―useful‖, appreciated and helpful. 33. Thousands of people came to the town to ______________ at the Fair. A. enjoy Grandma’s food B. sell and buy things C. learn to cook D. have a big party 34. Why was Grandma unhappy? A. She was too busy. B. No one lived with her. B. She was not ―useful‖. D. She couldn’t see anything 35. Which of the following is NOT TRUE according to the passage? A. Grandma was good at cooking. B. Many people moved to big cities. C. Grandma didn’t like ―Fairtime‖. D. Grandma was a kind old lady. 36. What’s the best title for the passage? A. Fairtime B. My ―Old‖ Grandma C. A Small Town D. Grandma’s Family D Text messaging, or simply ―texting‖, with allows people to send and receive messages on mobile phones, becomes very popular today. The advantages of texting are obvious. Texting helps to save money. If you have a few words to greet your families and friends on their birthdays or on some important festivals, sending messages can be cheaper than phone calling. Texting helps to save time. Even if you want to send a message to 100 people, you can do it one second. Texting helps you to ―talk‖ to someone when he is too busy to answer the phone. Texting can also help you to ―talk‖ to someone secretly if you don’t want others to hear what you are talking on the phone. These advantages are so amazing that many people are crazy about it. They hold mobile phones in hands all day long, send dozens of messages each day, and even text while driving or walking. However, texting has its disadvantages. Junk messages may come into your mobile phone box now and then. When your phone box gets too full, you can’t receive any more messages. You may therefore miss some important information. What’s more, if you don’t do texting properly, for example texting while driving or walking, it can be dangerous. It can cause injuries and even death. It was reported that about 6,000 people were killed and half a million were injured for this reason each year. In Fort Lee, a small town in New Jersey, USA, three people died because they walked into traffic while texting in 2011. Two researchers at Stony Brook University, New York found that texters are 60% more probably to have an accident than others. When people are texting, they don’t notice other people or things around them. To reduce traffic accidents, all drivers of the UN are now not allowed to text while driving. About 32 countries have passed laws restricting the use of mobile phones while driving. Texting is a wonderful way of communication. However, only when we use it properly, can we fully enjoy the fun it brings. 37. How many advantages of texting are mentioned in the passage? B. Two. B. Three. C. Four. D. Five. 38. What did the researchers at Stony Brook University find? E. Texters are easier to have an accident. F. Texting is a good way of communication.

G. 6,000 people were killed and injured. H. Many people text to greet families and friends. 39. The underlined word restricting probably means _____________. A. not telling B. not allowing C. enjoying D. making 40. This passage is written to tell us that ______________. A. we should do less texting B. texting has many advantages C. texting is better than phone calling D. we should do texting properly

Today most countries have at least one airline that flies to foreign countries and one airline that flies inside the country. Some countries have several of each. The world's first passenger airline was called the St. Petersburg Tampa Airboat Line. This St. Petersburg was in Florida in the USA, and the airline took passengers on a 20-mile flight across Tampa Bay. It operated for only four months from January 1914.

The first European airline flew every day from Berlin to Weimar. Called Deutsche Lutt-Reederei (DLR), it started to operate on 6 February 1919. At first it carried only mail and newspapers, but before long it took passengers as well. The planes were open to the air so passengers had to wear special clothing and shoes to protect them from the wind, rain and cold. In March 1919 the first international airline began to operate. Lignes Aeriennes Farman flew once a week between Paris and Brussels. The journey took two hours and 50 minutes. Later that year, an English airline, Air Transport and Travel, flew every day from London to Paris. Although the first passenger flights took place in the USA, the development of air travel in America was strangely slow; it was not until 1926 that there were any regular passenger services there. It was not until 1939 that the first service across the North Atlantic began to operate. This was a service by the Pan American Boeing 314 flying boat, Yankee Clipper, which took 18 hours and 42 minutes to cover the journey between Newfoundland in North America and Southampton in England. The journey now takes about four hours by Boeing 777 and half that by Concorde. Today for many people air travel is as much part of their lives as traveling by boat, car or train. Although it has not seriously affected travel by car or train, it has caused many shipping lines to stop carrying passengers, as most people now prefer to make long journeys by air rather than by sea. 48. The first passenger airline ___________. A. traveled across land to Tampa C. operated only for a short time 49. DLR carried ___________. A. mail and newspapers only C. shoes and clothing A. two hours C. four hours 51. The story is about __________. A. the history of flight C. the invention of the first plane
D

B. operated in Russia D. started in a famous city B. passengers only D. mail at first, then passengers later B. two hours and 50 minutes D. 18 hours and 42 minutes B the development of passenger air travel D. the development of the first airline

50. The flight across the Atlantic by Concorde takes ____________.

Luo Dongdong is one of the students in Class 7b. He joined our middle school at the beginning of the second term. By then we all knew each other well and we each had our own small group of friends. None of the students welcomed Luo Dongdong into any of the groups. Luo Dongdong looked out of place. He was different from us and, anyway, he did not try to join any of the groups. First of all his clothes were different from ours. They were old and too big for his small body. They were always clean but he looked funny in them. He brought his schoolbooks to class every day in a large plastic bag. One day one of the handles broke. I lent him my old sports bag to carry his books home. The next day he came to school with a new plastic bag and returned my old sports bag to me. "I washed it for you," he said. "You didn't have to," I said, "but thanks anyway." From that day I began talking to Luo Dongdong during the lunch breaks. I got to know him well. He is a very kind and thoughtful person. His family is quite hard up.
