Dear Ming-hui,

How’s everything?

Summer vacation has started here. This is my second year in America. This year I have many chances to meet different people. My school thinks students should 21 . That’s why I was asked to work at a hospital. I didn’t get paid for the work, so at first I thought I was helping others. But later I found 22 . The work has changed me in a good way. I used to care only about my studies, but I’m different now. It made me feel good to see other people live better lives because of something I did for them.

I miss my friends in Taiwan. 23 next summer after graduating from high school. Let’s go to see our teacher Ms. Huang then. She’s going to have a baby next January.

All the best,

I was sitting by the window,
Lightly kissing my sleeping cat,
The half-finished coffee on the table,
The blowing fan on the wall,
The sweet music on the radio.

A little girl was riding a yellow bike,
Slowly passing by my window,
The light wind on her face,
The flying hair behind her ears,
The quiet lazy summer afternoon.

Susan was a woman who hated animals. She never wanted to keep any pets at home. To her, all animals were dirty and boring. Susan could never understand why people would like to have cats or dogs in the house. It was so stupid!

Last month Susan's daughter, Penny, came home from school with a mouse in a box. Susan was very angry. But Penny said that it was her homework. Her teacher asked each student to take care of an animal and learn to get along with it. Susan had to say yes.

It was fun for Penny at the beginning, but then she got lazy and forgot to do her homework. It became Susan's homework. She gave it food and water every day and found that the mouse was in fact not dirty. She even talked to it! It was not boring or stupid! Now Susan is having a good time withhermouse. She named it Nini. And she is going to buy another one to make a pair.

Dear Luke,

My daughter Angela is very quiet. She seldom talks to us, and she does not have any friends. What’s worse, she is not interested in studying. All she does every day is watch TV and play computer games. I have told her hundreds of times that she should study hard, but she does not listen to me. What should I do?


Dear Tim,

The problem with Angela is not that she does not study, but that she does not talk to people. If she can make some friends, her life will be more interesting.

Perhaps Angela has had this problem for a long time. It won’t be solved soon. You should spend more time with her and help her. This is the homework both you and your daughter need to do!

I was jogging with my dog this morning when I saw John Archer at a street corner. He was sitting on a bike with one of his feet on the ground. "He's waiting for someone," I thought. John and I were both in the ninth grade. He was a basketball player on our school team and was very popular with many girls. But I never talked to him before. He was not my type.

John saw me, too. He smiled. For a moment I thought he was smiling at someone else. But he was not. "Hi, Mary Jones," he said to me. "You have a cute little dog." I smiled but did not say anything, because I did not know what to say. "I'm here waiting for you. Would you...would you like to go to the movies with me?" he asked. I was very surprised. I never thought he would do this, and I never thought about going out with him.

I said "no," of course. But he seemed nice and friendly. Maybe I would go to watch him play basketball some day.

Small Rice, Big Dream

Central Taiwan News

May 13, 2008

Two years ago, a small town in Changhua started to grow healthy rice. The healthy rice was not grown by farmers but by students from a small elementary school of only about fifty people.

The idea of growing rice came from the school teachers. When making teaching plans, the teachers decided to teach students how to grow healthy rice on school land. They wanted the students to get closer to the land and learn to help each other when doing the rice farming outside the classroom.

What’s better, the school made money from selling the rice and giving farming classes to the public. With the money, the school could help students who wished to go to foreign countries some day. Today the dream is becoming realthe students are flying to Japan to share their special farming experiences, and have fun over there, of course!

"We all feel very proud that even students from a small town can make themselves seen in the world," said one of the teachers.

What is the reading about?
A language class for farmers.
A new way of cooking rice.
A successful teaching plan.
A famous teacher from a small town.
Which is said in the reading?
It is important for farmers to make good use of land.
Farming makes students healthy.
The school bought the land for the farming classes.
Farming helps the school make money.
What is the dream?
Visiting a foreign country.
Growing healthy rice.
Building more schools.
Learning outside the classroom.
