I am studying at Sydney Russel School, a small but very famous school in Australia. All the lessons there 1.
(teach)in English. I have five 2. (subject) this term. What a big challenge!
Last week, Mr Brown, my science teacher asked us 3. (do)a project on trees. Ming and I were in the same group. Both of us were from 4. (Chinese). We spent several hours 5. (stay) in the library every day, reading and surfing the Internet. We even planted two trees in the school garden and took many photos of
The most 7. (excite)part was the presentation. We introduced many things about trees, for example, the 8. (tall)and oldest tree in the school. Everyone enjoyed the presentation.
Learning by doing 9. (help)me a lot. I'm sure everything 10. (become)better.
One day, a man was walking past a lake. 1. (sudden), he saw a boy standing beside the lake with a mirror. “Excuse me,” he said, “but could you tell me what you are doing?”
“I 2. (fish),” said the boy.
“With a mirror? Could you tell me how it 3. (work)?” the man asked.
“OK, but I want five 4. (dollar).”
The man wanted 5. (know)the secret very much, so he handed the boy the money. “Now 6.
(show )me how it works,” he said. “Well,” the boy began, “the mirror 7. (hold) towards the water, and when a fish goes by, the sunlight in the mirror gives 8. (it)a surprise. It stops and doesn't know what to do, and then you catch it at once.” The man was surprised, “Can you really catch fish with the mirror?”
“Of course. So far, I 9. (catch)five. You are the 10. (five)!” replied the boy.
She used to sleep on the sidewalk of the Fifth Street Post Office. She 1. (wear) dirty clothes and her mouth was nearly toothless. If she was not asleep, she talked to 2. (she). What a poor old lady!
One Thanksgiving, we had lots of food 3. (leave) over. So I packed the food up and rode over to the Fifth Street and I found her 4. (easy). There she was, 5. (sit) against a tree near the post office. She was dressed as she always was. I went to her and said, “I've brought you some food. Would you like some turkey and apple pie?”
However, the old woman didn't seem to be very 6. (excite) about this. She looked at me and said, “Oh, thank you very much, but someone 7. (give) me food earlier and I'm quite full now. Why don't you take it to someone else who needs it?”
Her 8. (manner)were gracious (亲切的). I was the person who didn't know what 9. (say). An old lady whose life was 10. (bad) than most of us still thought about others. Why don't more of us do that?
Every year in March, the two sessions (两会)are held in Beijing. Government officials hold news conferences(新闻发布会) to give 1. (report) to the public. During this time, a lot of people pay attention to China, so interpreters(口译员) play a very 2. (importance)role at these news conferences.
Zhang Lu 3. (be)a professional interpreter for more than ten years. She usually interprets for top leaders, 4. (include)Premier Li Keqiang and former Premier Wen Jiabao. Zhang 5. (know) for her translation of Chinese literary quotes (文学典故). How are interpreters like Zhang able to work correctly and quickly?
Their ability 6. (main)comes from hard work. Most of them majored in English in college and went through lots of training. To be a skillful interpreter, they never stop 7. (learn). According to China Radio International, the interpreters won't know who they are going to interpret for until a month before the two sessions. They then make full use of the month to prepare everything by 8. (they).
They have to find out famous sentences that the spokesperson might plan 9. (use) when they answer questions. They also try to predict what kinds of questions might be asked.
There is no “secret” to be a 10. (success)interpreter. It's all a matter of skill and hard work.
