Have you ever stayed in a hotel? Most Chinese hotels often provide guests with things like disposable（一次性的）toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo and slippers. Many guests like the idea because they don't have to bring their own. But, if you travel to Beijing, remember to bring your own things. Starting from June, some hotels in Beijing will no longer provide guests with these disposables. They want to ask people to use less disposable things.
Many disposable things are made of plastic. People throw them away after only using them once. It is a waste of natural resources（资源）and is very bad for the environment. Do you know, one Chinese person makes as much as 400kg of waste a year! Most of that waste comes from disposable things. In Beijing, people throw away about 19,000 tons of plastic bags and 1,320 tons of plastic lunch bowls every year! Plastic can take between 100 and 400 years to break down. So the less plastic we throw out, the better. So, wherever you travel, bring your own things and use them again and again.
Back at home and school, you can also do something to make our world a better place. Try to do these things in your daily life: Use cloth shopping bags, not plastic ones. After using a plastic bag, wash it out and let it dry. Then you can use it over and over again. Do not use paper cups. At your school canteen（食堂）, use your own bowl and chopsticks instead of disposable ones.
36. Why do many hotels provide guests with some disposable things?
A. Let their guests be convenient during their travelling.
B. Hope their guests use less disposable things.
C. Wish their guests to save money.
D. Want their guests to use more disposable things.

38. Which of the following is NOT true?

B. Throwing disposable things away is a waste of natural resources.
C. Plastic is very bad for the environment.
D. Plastic breaks down easily.
39. What can we do to make our world a better place at home and school?
A. Use shopping bags made of plastic.
B. Do not throw away paper cups.
C. Use disposable plates, bowls and chopsticks.
D. Do not forget to reuse daily necessities（日用品）.

We are often asked to make a speech in life. Most of us are afraid of it and don’t do a good job. Here are some simple steps to make your speech a successful one. First of all, find out everything you can about your subject and at the same time find out as much as you can about your audience. Who are they? What do they know about your subject? Put yourself in their shoes as you prepare your speech. Then try to arrange your material so that your speech is clear and easy to follow. Use as many examples as possible. Never forget your audience. Don’t talk over their heads or talk down to them. When you are giving your speech, speak slowly and clearly, look at your audience and pause for a few seconds from time to time to give your audience chances to think over what you’ve said. Just remember: be prepared, know your subject and your audience say what you have to say and be yourself so that your ideas will bring you and your audience together.

Many people think a telephone is a necessity. But I think it is a pest and a time waste. Very often you find it impossible to escape from it. If you have a telephone in your own house, you will admit that it tends to ring when you least want it to ring; when you are asleep or in the middle of a meal or a conversation, or when you are just going out ,or when you are in your bath. Are you strong-minded enough to ignore it? You are not. You think there may be some important news or message for you. I can assure you that if a message is really important it will reach you sooner or later. Have you never rushed dripping from the bath, or chewing from the table, or dazed from the bed ,only to be told that you are a wrong number?
But you will say ,you need not have your name printed in the telephone directory, and you can have a telephone which is only usable for outgoing calls. Besides, you will say, isn’t it important to have a telephone in case of sudden emergency-illness, accident, or fire? Of course, you are right, but here in a thickly populated country like England one is seldom far from a telephone in case of dreadful necessity.
I think perhaps I had better try to justify myself by trying to prove that what I like is good. I admit that in different circumstances- if I were a wealthy and powerful businessperson, for instance, or badly ill and had to lie in bed. I might find a telephone a necessity. But then if I were a taxi-driver I should find a car a necessity. Let me put it another way: there are two things for which the English seem to show particular talent: one is mechanical invention, the other literature. My own business happens to be with the use of words but I see I must now stop using them. For I have had just been handed a slip of paper to say that somebody is waiting to speak to me on the telephone. I think I had better answer it. After all, one never knows, it may be something important.

Studying at a traditional school or studying on the Internt?
1. Nowadays the Internet is more and more popular. However, I prefer to study at a traditional school rather than on the Internet.
First, the school provides a place where all the students spend most of their time together, which allows friendship to develop. Students will benefit from this precious friendship all their life. They will also learn from teachers and classmates and thus improve their social skills. These advantages of a traditional school are where the disadvantages of the Internet lie. With nobody to have face-to-face discussion with them, students can easily get lonely, which may lead to unhealthy personality.
In a word, the school life is colorful and enjoyable.
2. Nowadays studying on the Internet is more and more popular. And I think it’s a good way of studying.
First, the Internet enables people to study whenever and wherever it’s convenient. They can also choose to study whatever they are interested in. However, a traditional school doesn’t provide such great freedom. Students have to study given subjects in a certain classroom. Even if they have no interest in what is taught, they have to stay there. Besides, a single student’s weak subject can’t be paid enough attention to with a lot of students in a classroom.
I love studying on the Internet. It brings me a lot more choices and freedom.
