   43.Hi-tech Romance p.286
  Both Charlene and Robert are librarians. Charlene is from America and Robert is from Australia. Four
  days after they met face to face for the first time, they got married. "That was quick," you might think.
  Actually, they had known each other for nine months before they met. Thanks to e-mail (electronic mail),
  they had been corresponding with each other through their computers.
   It all started when Charlene came across Robert's note in her computer. She replied to it. From then on,
  they would not only get in touch but flirt with each other. That was how this "hi-tech" romance began. Sound
  interesting? Well, if you're looking for a spouse, why not give it a try? Who knows? You might be just as
  lucky as Charlene and Robert.

  D: Sure, I do. But all my friends are either out shopping or they're boring. And you know I hate shopping.

  45. Tough Guys Do Dance p.301
  Not only is Thai boxing violent but it is also bloody. Yet it involves the arts of dance and music. It
  is both ugly and beautiful at the same time. That's why it's so exciting to watch.
   Thai boxing was created by soldiers over five hundred years ago. The fighter use every part of their
  bodies, especially their feet, knees and elbows to strike their opponents. Their deadly style has earned
  them respect from other martial artists.
   Surprisingly, the fights start off with a graceful dance. The dance is in honor of the boxers' teachers.
  There is even a small band which plays along with the dance and during the fight. So, who says tough guys
  don't dance?

  S: Oh, don't be so modest, Martin.
  M: No, really. I wouldn't fight one of those tough guys for all the money in the world.
  S: Would you do it for a kiss?
  M: That's a different story. Sure, I will. But you've got to pay in advance. (Martin tries to kiss Sally.)

  Though it is generally accepted that junk food is not healthful, American fast-food restaurants are
  popping up all over the world. These restaurants are for people who are always in a rush. If they don't
  have time to sit down to a regular meal, they race over to the nearest McDonald's. There they can quickly
  satisfy their hunger.
   Because Americans like things done immediately, they often order their food quickly at fast-food
  restaurants. They say, "A burger, fries and a coke!" though it's not polite, it's efficient. So when you
  are in the States, try to order this way. After all, in America do as the Americans do.

  49. Stop Snoring! P.329
  Millions of families have trouble falling asleep. Do you know why? There's someone in the family who
  has a snoring problem. The problem can be quite serious. In some cases, couples have to sleep in separate
  bedrooms. And in others, kids can never study or even watch TV once Dad hits the sack.
   So how can we avoid being a snoring nuisance? One way is to avoid eating a big meal before going to bed.
  Drinking alcohol near bedtime is something, which also causes snoring. Changing the position in which the
  snorer sleeps also helps. Another alternative is to wear ear plugs. But if all these ideas fail, you have
  only one choice: Wake the snorer up. Tell him it's his turn to watch you sleep.
  snore vi.打呼噜I must have been snoring.Snore is the sound we make or some people make when they sleep.Peter and me have already made
  that sound for you .If you are sleeping with someone who snores ,it's hard to sleep .So we often scold that person.Hi ,wake up.Stop snoring.

  M: I understand. Neither did I. But what can we do?
  S: I read in a magazine that there's some kind of laser which can cure snoring.
  M: I read that, too. But it's pretty expensive. Besides, people who have tried it say it's painful and could
  cause voice change.
  S: Oh, I didn't know that. I guess there's no hope then.
  M: Well, I'll talk to Dad about it.
  S: I hope he agrees to do it. Anyway, a voice change will do him a world of good. Have you heard him try to

  51.Thanksgiving p.348
  Thanksgiving which falls on the fourth Thursday of November, is one of the biggest American holidays. This
  holiday started in the early 1600's after settlers arrived in America. These people who came from Europe
  didn't know how to survive in the wild new country. Luckily, they met some friendly American Indians, who
  showed them how to hunt turkeys and grow corn. In the fall, after the harvest, the settlers had a great
  feast. They invited the Indians to thank them for their help.
  Today the tradition continues. On Thanksgiving Day, Americans invite their friends over for a turkey dinner
  and give thanks for what they have.

  Thai people believe that keeping monkeys happy brings good luck. So every year there's a day on which
  they have a special treat for monkeys called the Annual Monkey Feast. Hundreds of monkeys come from the
  mountains to "sit at" long buffet tables which are piled high with bananas, peanuts, watermelons and cabbage.
   Monkeys will be monkeys. So they fool around and fights break out. But nobody seems to care. Neither do
  the monkeys. They just stare back at the crowds of people who turn out to watch them. Then they continue to
  monkey around and have a good time.

  A 34-year-old married man who died recently had no children. When he died, his wife was not pregnant,
  either. But now that he's dead, he has a chance of becoming a father. How's that possible?
   After a man dies, his sperm remains alive for some time. In this case, the woman asked doctors to remove
  the sperm from her husband's body and store it in a sperm bank. Now, she can have the baby that she has
  wanted for a long time. She says it's as if her husband would come back to life again when the child is born.
  If that is so, wouldn't that make her husband her son?

  In the past, the children of Asia had very few choices. A son would usually follow in his father's
  footsteps and do the same kind of job as his father. But now, young people have higher education which
  opens doors to new kinds of jobs. TV exposes kids to new ideas from other countries.
   So, the younger generations of Asians are doing things their parents never dreamed of. They're investing
  in stocks or dying their hair purple. Unfortunately, some are also getting into trouble with sex and drugs.
  Asian parents whose children are doing all this do have a reason to be worried.

  about moral values
  More and more people are forgetting the saying, "Pride comes before a fall." I remember only a few years
  ago when things used to be so different. People used to be more modest and humble.
   As I looked around at my schoolmate the other day, I realized how different things are. People are so
  much more pretentious nowadays. With their fancy clothes and stylish hairdos, they appear too materialistic, which is not to my liking. I know modernization is necessary for advancement. However, I hope we don't lose our traditional moral values along the way.
  Clothes make the man. 人靠衣装,马靠鞍
  A moral education is very important for our students.
  I value your friendship very much. 珍惜

  When/After I realized that Mary has a lot of money, I took a liking to her. 喜欢...
  This is used to show the difference between the spirit or your character or your idears and believes and your material or the things which you own which are things are like money or a car or your chothing or a ring and so on.If your life is just chasing material things,you just want money in your life,and you don't care about your character or about feelings or idears or other people's believes.Then we say you are too materialistic.

  Today, more people than ever before are speaking to each other through satellite television, cellular
  telephones and computers. This means that people from different parts of the world need to be able to
  communicate in the same language. That language happens to be English.

  in the next century. Already almost all Californian Native American languages are in danger of extinction.

  traditions is to enjoy a long midday meal. This lengthy lunch can last up to four hours! As you can imagine,
  after all the eating, drinking and chatting, they need to take a nap.

  Do you sometimes have a hard time understanding what Americans are talking about among themselves? Do
  you want to know why? The answer is, Americans are crazy about using slang. They tend to over do it, though.
   Otherwise, slang is fun to use. You should try it. And some slang is easy to understand. For example, if
  someone is "off the hook," it means that he is no longer in trouble. The "hook" is a fish hook. If a fish is
  on the hook, of course, it is in trouble. If it is "off the hook," then it is out of danger. Didn't we tell
  you slang is fun? Besides, it should at least help you feel more at home and not like a fish out of water
  when you speak to Americans.
