外研社(2014 新版)九年级英语上册课文(Module 1—12) Module1 Wonders of the worldUnit 1 It’s more than 2,000 years old.Tony:Let's call Wonders of the World and join in the discussion. I think natural wonders are more interesting than man-made ones. And I think the Giant's Causeway is the most fantastic natural wonder.Lingling: Tony:Hm, I’ve never seen it, so I'm not sure I agree with you. Why do you like it, Tony? Well, I visited the Giant's Causeway two years ago. It's huge. There're about 40,000 rocks, most of them with six sides. It goes for several hundred metres on the eastern coast of Northern IrelandLingling:That sounds great, though I think Victoria Falls in Africa are even more fantastic. They're about l,700 metres wide and 100 metres high. You can hear the loud noise a few kilometres away.Betty:Wow, that's huge! But in my opinion, man-made wonders are more exciting than natural ones. Look at the Terracotta Army. It's more than 2.000 years old.Daming:I agree with you, Betty. And I think the Three Gorges Dam is fantastic too. It's about 2,300 metres long, 185 metres high and 15 metres wide at the top. It produces electricity for millions of people in China.Betty:Now, who'd like to call first?1

Unit 2 The Grand Canyon was not just big.A great wonder of the natural worldWhen I arrived, it was early morning and it was raining. I looked to the east -- the sky was becoming grey. I got out of the car, went through a gate and walked along a dark path. There was nothing to see, but I knew it was there. After about a mile, a stranger appeared beside the path. "Am I going the right way?" I asked. He knew where I was going. "Yes,” he replied, “you’ll get there in five minutes," Finally, I came to some rocks and stopped. I looked over them, but it was silent and there was no sign of it. Suddenly, the rain stopped and the clouds cleared. The sun rose behind me and shone on the rocks. Far below me, the ground fell away and down to a river. I was looking across one of the wonders of the natural world - the Grand Canyon. I looked down to the Colorado River, a silver stream nearly one mile below me. If you put the two tallest buildings in the world on top of each other at the bottom of the canyon, they still would not reach the top. Then I looked across to the other side of the canyon. It was about fifteen miles away, maybe more. Finally, I looked to my left and to my right, and on both sides the canyon went far away for more than 200 miles. The Grand Canyon was not just big. It was huge! I remained by the canyon for about half an hour, and I asked myself. "Is the Grand Canyon the greatest wonder of the natural world?" I certainly know the answer. What do you think?2

Module 2 Public HolidaysUnit 1 My family always go somewhere interesting as soon as the holiday begins. Tony: Lingling: The First of October is China's National Day, isn 't it, Lingling?Yes. The People's Republic of China was founded on 1st October 1949. People have celebrated the National Day since then. There are flowers and national flags everywhere, and we have a three-day holiday.Tony: Lingling:Do you have any plans for the holiday this year? Yes. My parents and I are going to visit some friends in Shandong Province and will stay there until the end of the holiday. While we're staying with our friends, we're going to spend one day in Qingdao. When is your national day, Betty'?Betty :Our national day is called Independence Day. It's on 4th July. We've celebrated it since 1777. It's a public holiday, but we only have one day off. On that day, there are all kinds of holiday activities. It's the start of the vacation season and most people take a vacation sometime in July or August.Lingling: Betty:And is there anything special on that day? Well, you can see American flags everywhere. We usually have a picnic somewhere nice. Kids have great fun. We also watch bands play music in public parks.Daming: Tony:Do you have a national day in the UK, Tony? No, we don't --- we celebrate Christmas with a two-day holiday. And my family always go somewhere interesting as soon as the holiday begins.3

Unit 2 We have celebrated the festival since the first pioneers arrived in America.Thanksgiving Thanksgiving is an American festival. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. It is a time for a special dinner among family and friends. People make short speeches and give thanks for their food. We have celebrated the festival since the first pioneers from England arrived in America by ship in the seventeenth century. While they were crossing the Atlantic, many people died, and after they landed, their first winter was worse than any English winter. The local people, the Native Americans, taught the pioneers how to grow corn. The following year they celebrated together by eating a dinner of the new food. We still celebrate Thanksgiving today with a traditional dinner. The kitchen is always the most crowded room in our house because we all help prepare the food .We lay the table, and then before we begin dinner, my father gives thanks for the food, so we remember why we celebrate the festival. We usually eat too much, but it is only once a year! We often talk a lot and tell stories after dinner as well. When it is all over, everyone helps wash the dishes. The festival is a very busy time for travel when friends and families come together to celebrate. During the festival, there are plenty of other things to see and do. We live in New York City, and we go to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade goes along several streets and finishes at the famous Macy's store. Thanksgiving is the start of the Christmas season, and we start shopping for presents. Football is also important at Thanksgiving, with many teams playing games. Like many Americans, we usually watch the games on television and enjoy ourselves very much.4

Module 3 HeroesUnit 1 Ms li: Daming: She trained hard, so she became a great player laterDaming, who is your hero? Who have you chosen to tell us about? Deng Yaping! She's my hero because she's one of the best table tennis players in the world and I love playing table tennis.Ms Li: Daming:Tell us about her. Well, she started playing table tennis when she was five. She trained hard, so she became a great player later.Ms Li: Daming:And what competitions has she won? She's won many world competitions, including four gold medals in the Olympics. She stopped playing when she was twenty- four.Ms Li:What did she do after that?Darning: She began to study at Tsinghua University in Beijing and then attended university abroad. Her English wasn't good enough when she began. Once again she worked hard, and seven years later, she completed her doctor's degree at Cambridge University. Whatever she does, she never gives up! Ms Li: That's amazing!Daming: Yes. Deng says that she isn't cleverer than anyone else, but she has a very strong will. Ms Li: I see. Well. I think she's a good student as well as a good player.Daming: Yes, and she helped make the Beijing Olympics a victory for world sport. She's simply the best! Ms Li: She's a true hero.5

Unit 2 There were few doctors, so he had to work very hard on his own My hero - Dr Norman Bethune By Wang Lingling Norman Bethune is one of the most famous heroes in China. He was a Canadian doctor. He came to China to help the Chinese people and died for them. Norman Bethune was born in 1890. He became a doctor in 1916 and went to Spain in 1936 to treat the wounded soldiers during the war there. He soon realised that many people were dying because they did not get to hospital quickly enough. Dr Bethune developed new ways of taking care of the sick. He invented special medical tools to use outside hospitals and close to the fighting areas so that doctors could treat the wounded more quickly. His inventions saved many lives. In 1938, Dr Bethune came to China and helped treat the wounded during the Anti- Japanese War. At that time, there were few doctors, so he had to work very hard on his own. His experience of treating people in Spain was useful in China. He developed training courses for local doctors and nurses, and wrote books so that they could learn about how he treated the sick. Dr Bethune often worked very hard without resting or taking care of himself. Once, he even worked for sixty-nine hours without stopping and managed to save over a hundred lives. One day in 1939, he cut his finger during an operation, but he continued his work without treating it. In the end, he died of his wound. Dr Bethune's work for the Chinese people made him a hero in China. There are many books and films about him, and he is still remembered in both China and Canada today.6

Module 4Home aloneUnit 1 I can look after myself, although it won’t be easy for meMum: Dad: Mum: Now, what's our train number? T27 to Lhasa. It's leaving from Platform 2. The meeting in Lhasa is very important for us, but I'm sorry you can't come with us, Betty. Betty: Mum: So am I, but I can't miss two weeks of school. Will you remember everything I've told you? Be especially careful with the door. Shut it when you're in and lock it when you go out. Betty: Mum: Yes. Mum. l can look after myself, although it won't be easy for me. Well, make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. And I've left lots of your favourite biscuits. Betty: Dad : Betty: Mum: Don't worry. I can cook simple meals. There won't be anybody to wake you up in the morning. I'll be fine. My clock rings so loudly that it will certainly wake me up. I'm sure I've forgotten something, but I don't know what it is! (Announcement: We advise all passengers for Train T27 to Lhasa to go immediately to Platform 2. Your train is about to leave.) Betty: Mum: Betty': Mum: Betty: That's your train! Goodbye Mum, goodbye Dad. I know! I haven’t given you our address in Lhasa!Send me a text message. Have a good trip! Bye, my dear! Bye! See you in a couple of weeks!7

Unit 2 I became so bored with their orders that I wished they would leave me alone. My "perfect holiday" As a boy, like all other boys, I wanted to be a man. But my parents did everything for me. Actually, they managed every minute of my life. Although they loved me, I felt a bit unhappy with them. "Zheng Chenyu, do your homework!" "Practise the piano!" "Turn off the TV!" so bored with their orders that I wished they would leave me alone. Well, my wish came true! Although my parents were very worried about leaving me, they had to go away on business for a few days. Now was my chance! I could have some fun at last! As I becamesoon as I got home from school the first day, I happily threw my schoolbag on the sofa and ate lots of snacks. Then I enjoyed an exciting film on TV, and after that I played computer games. I liked the games so much that I played until mid-night. The next morning I woke up late. I had to hurry to school without breakfast, but I was still late. The teacher asked me for my homework, but I could not hand it in. With an empty stomach, I was unable to play basketball with my classmates! I felt tired and sleepy at school all day long. When I got home, I tried to cook some rice, but I burnt it. I even dropped my father's cup when I was cooking! I found myself so bad at simple cooking tasks. I started to feel lonely. I wanted Mum and Dad to come home soon. Mum cooked such delicious food, and made sure I never forgot my homework. Dad always helped me with any difficult questions, and told funny jokes when I was unhappy. Then I realised being home alone was not always perfect. When my parents came home, they were happy to find that I could cook and tidy up now. I told them my home alone story and we all laughed.8

Module 5 MuseumsUnit 1 Don’t cross that rope! (Betty, Lingling and Daming are on the second floor of a museum.) Betty: Lingling: What a wonderful museum! It's great, isn't it? Let's go to the Animal Room upstairs. I need some information for my project. Betty: Lingling: Daming : Guard: Betty: Daming: Gard: Daming: Guard: Lingling: Daming : Guard: Daming: Betty: Lingling: Betty: Lingling: Guard: Lingling: Betty: Me too. Let's go. Wait, where's Daming? There he is. What's he doing over there? Hey, Betty! Lingling! Come and see the monkey exhibition! No shouting, please! It's against the rules. Oh, no! Daming is in trouble again. Look at the monkey's tail! I've got to get in here… Stop! Don't cross that rope! Can't you see the sign, kid? "No entry." Oh. Why not? Because it's closed. Yes, Daming. Read the sign! Oh, right. That's no good! Well, I'll just take a photo... Sorry. No photos. See? There certainly are a lot of rules in this museum. No wonder the place is empty! Daming! Don't be rude! Oh, no! What's the matter, Lingling? My mobile phone! It’s missing! Oh, no! What am I going to do? Don't worry, Miss. Go downstairs to the lost and found office. They might have it. That phone is new! I have to find it, or Mum will punish me! I'm sure it will be all right, Lingling. Let's go and see.Daming: Yes, let's go downstairs.9

Unit 2 If you ever go to London, make sure you visit the Science Museum The Science Museum in London By Tony Smith Welcome to the most friendly museum in London. In most museums, there is no shouting and no running, and you must not touch anything. But the Science Museum is different... It is noisy! People talk about what they can see and do here, and there are some very noisy machines as well. If you want answers to all your questions about science, this is the right place for you. I like to visit the rooms on the second and third floors. You can learn about communications and the environment as well as maths, physics and chemistry. For example, you can find out how people dig coal from the ground and use it to create energy. And in one room they even explain how X-rays let you sec inside your body. The Launchpad on the third floor is the most popular room, and it is my favourite too because there are lots of physics experiments. For example, if you want to fill a bag with sand, you have to control a kind of truck on wheels and move it into the correct place. You can also find out how people travel into space and back again. On the fourth and fifth floors, you can learn about what medicine was like in the past. If you compare the medicine of the past with the medicine of today, you will feel very lucky next time you visit a doctor! The Science Museum is interesting for people of all ages. You can always find something new and have a wonderful time there. The museum is free to enter, so you can go in for a few minutes or stay all day. It is open daily from10 am to 6 pm. So if you ever go to London, make sure you visit the Science Museum. It is my favourite museum in the whole world!10

Module 6ProblemsUnit 1. If I start after dinner, I’ll finish it before I go to bed. Dad: Tony: Tony, you're playing the guitar again. Have you done your homework'? No, not yet, but I haven't got much. If I start after dinner, I'll finish it before I go to bed. Anyway, you wanted me to learn an instrument. Dad: I want you to get into the habit of doing your homework as soon as you come home from school. If you start now, you'll finish it before dinner. Tony: Yes, but I need a rest from schoolwork. I also want to go to the library to do volunteer work. Dad: Tony: Dad: Tony: Dad: So you're not going to do your home work now? No, it isn’t necessary to do it now. I'll do it later. That's a shame. I really don't think you should go to the library so much. Why not? I can work in the library and I'm also able to read books there. No deal, Tony. If you do all these other things instead of your homework, you won't have time to study. Tony: You mean you don't want me to help the community and increase my knowledge of the world? Dad: That's not the point. You should consider what the most important thing is. I don't want you to fail your exams. Tony: Dad: But..... You can't do anything before you finish your homework. I'm sorry, but that's my last word.11

Unit 2 If you tell him the truth now, you will show that you are honest. Do you have a problem? Write to Diana at New Standard Magazine and ask for her advice. Dear Diana, Last week, my friend David came round with a new computer game and asked to play it on my dad’s computer. I was worried, because I should ask my dad before I use his computer. He uses it for his work, and I can only use it for my homework. The reason is that he thinks it will go wrong if I play games on it. Well, while my dad was out, we decided to try out David's game. We copied it to the computer, and after we finished playing, we took it off the computer. However, when I started the computer again to check if everything was OK, some of my dad's documents were missing. Then, when my dad used the computer last night, he was really angry. He could no longer find the documents anywhere! They were very important ones. I did not tell him about the computer game because I did not want him to be angry with me. Now I feel terrible. I am not sure whether a computer engineer can get the documents back. Should I tell him about the computer game? Should I pay to repair it? Yours, SteveDear Steve. Oh, dear! You have made two mistakes. It is bad enough that you used your dad's computer to play games when he told you not to. And it is even worse that you did not tell him about it. If you tell him the truth now, he will be angry with you, but at least you will show that you are honest. You should apologise to your father. You should also pay the bill to repair the computer. If you offer to give up your pocket money, your father will realise that you are very sorry. Remember, next time, play football with David and not computer games! Best wishes. Diana12

Module 7Great booksUnit 1 We’re still influenced by Confucius’s ideasMr Jackson: Betty: Mr Jackson: Betty: Mr Jackson: Hello, Betty. What’s up? I want to join an Internet group to discuss great books by great writers. So, who are your great writers? Well, maybe Confucius and Shakespeare. Really? I accept that they’re great because their works are still read by many people today. But I think I’d describe Confucius more as a teacher and thinker than a writer. He was a very wise man. What do you have to do for the discussion? Betty: Mr Jackson: Well, each of us reads a favourite book and writes a review for the discussion. I see. We’re still influenced by Confucius’s ideas, and Shakespeare’s plays also make a lot of sense to us today. People have always read, and will always read great books. By the way, what do you think of Mark Twain, the great American writer in the nineteenth century? Betty: Mr Jackson: He was important, but I suppose he isn’t as well-known as Confucius or Shakespeare. No, but his books are still popular, and one of his books is my favourite, The Adventure of Tom Sawyer. Betty: Great! Why don’t you join in the discussion and tell us about it?13

Unit 2 It is still read and lovedA book review of The Adventure of Tom Sawyer By Betty King One of my favourite great books is The Adventure of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain. The story is set in the town of St Petersburg, Missouri, the US, in the nineteenth century. It tells some exciting stories about a boy who has many adventures. Tom, the hero of the book, lives with his aunt Polly. He is a lively and clever boy. He does not like people telling him what to do, so he always gets into trouble. He and his best friend, Huck Finn, run away to an island in the middle of the Mississippi River. Tom has more trouble because a bad man named Injun Joe is looking for him. Later, Tom escapes from a cave with another friend, Becky. He also finds Injun Joe’s treasure box and takes it away. My favourite part of the book is when Tom and Huck start their adventures on the island in the Mississippi River. At first, they are happy. But when they hear that everyone thinks they are dead, they feel very sorry, so they come back home. They hide and watch for a time when they see their family and neighbours coming to their funeral in the church. Then, Tom and Huck suddenly appear. Everyone is surprised to see them at first, but very pleased to find that they are alive. The Adventure of Tom Sawyer is a great book. It is more than an adventure story. Mark Twain wrote it in 1876. It describes people’s lives in the southern states of America at that time. It tells how young people grow, how people love each other and how bad people pay for their actions. It is written in everyday English, and the dialogues sound especially real. Today, it is still read and loved by people all over the world, and it is thought to be one of the greatest American stories.14

Module 8Sports lifeUnit 1 Daming wasn’t chosen for the team last yearLingling: Hi, Tony, you look tired. Tony: Betty: Tony: Yes, I’m training for the big match next week. Who are you playing against? HAS.Lingling: What does HAS stand for? Tony: Betty: Tony: Haidian All Stars. Oh, yes. It’ll be a difficult match. Didn’t they beat you last time? Yes, they did. But…Lingling: What was the score? Betty: Tony: If my memory is correct, HAS 98 points to BIG 52. But Daming wasn’t chosen for the team last time. That was a bad decision. We can’t play well without him. Lingling: That’s no excuse! Tony: Betty: Tony: But Daming is back now. There’s no difference between the two teams this season. When is the match? It’s next Saturday at noon, but if you want good seats, you should come by 11:30. Are you coming? Betty: I’m not sure. Do you think they’ll win, Lingling?Lingling: No way! How many matches have you played against HAS this year? Tony: Betty: Tony: Betty: Tony: Well, about three. And how many have HAS won? Er… most of them. Wrong! All of them! Face the truth, Tony. You’ve got no chance! I don’t agree. That’s not fair! (Tony leaves angrily.)Lingling: Remember to throw the ball, not knick it, Tony! Betty: He’s so mad at us that he’ll try harder to win, just to show we’re wrong!Lingling: Nice work, Betty! I do hope they win this time. We’ll be there to cheer for them.15

Unit 2 He was invited to competitions around the world. Liu Xiang---trained to win! For Liu Xiang, life as a sports hero began in 2004. First, he was invited to competitions around the world. Then, he was chosen for the Chinese team at the Athens Olympic Games and won a gold medal. Liu Xiang was not a successful sportsman at first. He was born in Shanghai on 13th July 1983, and started training when he was very young. In Grade 4, he went to the Sports School of Putuo District of Shanghai. Liu was encouraged at first to train for the high jump. In 1998, Liu Xiang’s ability in hurdling was noticed by Sun Haiping, who later became his coach. In 2001, a special programme was set up to help young sportsmen and sportswomen. Liu Xiang was among them. His races were recorded, and he was compared with the world’s best sports stars. Sun Haiping used the information to change his training methods for Liu Xiang. In May 2001, Liu Xiang won his first international 110m hurdles race in Japan. In 2004, he won the first Olympic gold medal for China in the 110m hurdles race, and at the same time broke the Olympic Games record. It was also the first time an Olympic gold medal for hurdling was hung round the neck of a sportsperson from an Asian country. Liu Xiang trained very hard. In fact, he trained so hard that he hurt his foot. From 2008 on, he suffered a lot from his foot problem, but he did not give up. Though he missed some competitions, he still returned to first place in the world 110m hurdles race in 2012. It is a pity that his foot problem stopped him from completing the 2012 London Olympic Games. But he is still a symbol of courage and success, and we continue to take great pride in him.16

Module 9Great inventionsUnit 1 Will computers be used more than books in the future?Tony: Dad: Dad, can I borrow your camera? Why?Tony: I’d like to take some photos on the school visit to the museum next week. They’ll be put up on the school website. And they can be seen on the Internet by other classes, even people living in other countries. Dad: Sounds great! When I was at school, we waited for weeks to hear from our pen friends abroad. But today, we can send and receive photos and mails on the Internet, and it’s really fast. Tony: Yes, the Internet and the computer have changed our lives. We even use online textbooks in our class. I wonder… Dad: Will computers be used more than books in the future?Perhaps. In the past, we mainly got information from paper books. Some are huge ones with thousands of pages. Today, with the invention of the computer and the electronic technology, it’s easy to get information on the Internet. The Internet is more powerful than books.Tony: Dad:Anyway, about the camera…? Oh, yes. Here it is. I haven’t used it since your mum’s birthday. And the memory may be full.Tony: Dad:OK. That can be fixed. I’ve got an empty memory card. Where are the instructions? In the camera bag. It’s a gift from your mum for my birthday, so you must promise that you’ll take good care of it. if you have to lend it to anyone, tell them to use it properly.Tony:Promise!17

Unit 2 Will books be replaced by the Internet?Every morning, my father buys a newspaper on his way to work. Every day, I open my books in class and start my lessons. Every evening, my mother looks through magazines at home. And very night, I look at the photos of David Beckham and Yao Ming on my bedroom wall before I go to sleep. Can we imagine life without paper or printing? Paper was first created about 2,000 years ago in China. After its invention, people started to write on paper to make a book. In those days, books were only produced one at a time by hand. As a result, there were not many books, and they were expensive. So, few people had the chance to learn to read. Printing was invented in China during the Sui and Tang Dynasties. Later, developments in printing made it possible to produce books more quickly and cheaply. A trade in books resulted, and more people learnt to read. Knowledge and ideas spread faster than ever before. In a way, we can compare the invention of paper and printing to the introduction of the Internet in the twentieth century. Although the Internet is still young, it is growing very fast, and may become more powerful than printing. A much larger amount of information can be stored on the Internet than in books. Someone with an Internet connection can find information much more easily than they can find in printed forms. And the machines we use to read it are now small and light, often smaller and lighter than a single book. Computers and the Internet are used in classrooms now, and newspapers and magazines are already read online. So what direction will traditional printing take in the future? Will books be replaced by the Internet? Let’s wait and see.18

Module 10Unit 1AustraliaI have some photos that I took in Australia last yearTony: Dad, I need your help. My teacher asked us to choose a country we want to visit, imagine we were there, and write a letter to our parents back home. I’ve chosen Australia. How can I do it? Dad: Don’t worry. I have some photos that I took in Australia last year. They may help you. Here we go. This is a rock called Ayers Rock, in central Australia. According to the local people, it’s a special and magical place. Tony: Oh, it looks huge. What’s its height? Dad: 348 meters. And this is the Sydney Opera House. It’s like a huge sailing boat with water on three sides. And this one is the Great Barrier Reef. Tony: Does it lie off the northeast coast of Australia? Dad: Yes, it’s over 2,600 kilometres long. It’s a great natural wonder. And here are some photos of my Australian friends. They’re sheep farmers. They wear special hats that keep the flies away. The scissors that they’re holding are used to cut the wool off the sheep. Do you know that many Australians came from Britain? Tony: Yes, of course! That’s why they speak English. Did you keep a diary while you were there? Dad: Yes, and you can read it.Tony: That’s great! And what didn’t you like about Australia? Dad: I hated the ants that were all over the place. I had to brush them off my clothes, especially my trousers! Tony: Ants in your trousers! That’s really funny! Dad: It wasn’t funny at the time!19

Unit 2 The game that they like most is Australian footballDear Mum and Dad, I am writing this letter to you from the centre of Australia. At the moment, we are staying near Ayers Rock. On the first day, we took a plane tour over the rock, and I was surprised at how big it was: 3.6 kilometres long and 348 metres high! During different periods of the day, the colours of the rock turn dark blue, purple, yellow and red. Ayers Rock is a centre of local Aboriginal culture. The Aborigines are the people that have lived in Australia from the earliest times, and their ancient stories descried the spirits that created the world. The Australians have a close relationship with the British. Many have British relatives, and they are like us in many ways. The foods that Australians like most are ham and beef with lots of salad. They also grow grapes and other fruits. They love all sports, but the game that they like most is Australian football. Because most Australians live near the coast, they also love going to the beach for swimming and surfing or just lying in the sun. Although it is December, it is summer over here. The sun is very bright, and near the coast the countryside is very green. There are lots of sheep in the fields and on the hills, but the middle of the country has no trees or grass, just rocks and sand… And kangaroos!Australians speak English, but in their own way. For example, when they say “G’day!” and “No worries.”, they mean “Hello!” and “Don’t worry about it. It’s not a problem!” On the second day, we went horse riding. The horse that I rode was lazy, so I was left far behind the others. But I enjoyed the slow and relaxing ride. Later this evening, we are taking the plane back to Sydney and coming home. It has been a wonderful trip. Love, Tony20

Module 11PhotosUnit 1 He’s the boy who won the photo competition last year!Daming: Are you going to enter the photo competition, Tony? Tony: You bet! I want to beat He Zhong this year. He’s not going to win it twice!Daming: Who’s He Zhong? Tony: He’s the boy who won the photo competition last year!Daming: The one who took photos at the school dance? Tony: That’s right. The thing is, he’s really good. And the general standard of the competition is much higher this year. Daming: I have a feeling that we can solve these little difficulties. What are the subjects that they’ve chosen for this year ’s competition? Tony: Nature, Home and Away, City and People, and Music.Daming: I think He Zhong will choose Music. Why don’t you choose the subject Home and Away, and take photos of Beijing? Tony: But Beijing isn’t my home town. It’s Cambridge.Daming: It doesn’t matter. Take some photos of Beijing and add some photos of Cambridge that you took recently. Tony: That’s a good idea. What about that photo of my cousin flying kites with Chinese kids in the Summer Palace? And the one of him reading a Chinese menu for the first time in Cambridge? Daming: Nice photos! I’m sure you’re in with a chance!21

Unit 2The photo which we liked best was taken by Zhao MinResults of the photo competitionTonight I am more than happy to read out the winners of the photo competition. We were very pleased with our competition this year. Compared with other years, we received many more photos. Even though all of the photos are excellent, we are sorry to say that we cannot give prizes to everyone. The person who won the prize for the subject Nature is fifteen-year-old Li Wei. Li Wei took a photo of the trees in Xiangshan Park. His photo shows the different colours on the hill. The photo which we liked best in the City and People group was taken by Zhao Min. Zhao Min is only twelve years old. Her photo shows a person rushing across a street on a windy evening. It is a beautiful girl who is wearing a blouse and skirt, and who is protecting her books against the showers. The best photo in the Music group was taken by He Zhong. His photo of the group Crazy Feet shows the singer, Becky Wang, and the band playing at a concert. He Zhong manages to show how this great new band moves and sounds, and the good time which their fans are having. A group of photos which show Beijing and Cambridge in England have won the prize for the subject Home and Away. They show some of the experiences of a young visitor to our country, and some memories of his home. The winner is Tony Smith! Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who entered the competition. Now let’s welcome our headmaster to present the prizes to the winners!22

Module 12 Save our worldUnit 1 If everyone starts to do something, the world will be saved.Lingling: After our lesson on the environment, I’m worried about the future. Pollution is our great enemy, and we have to fight it. If the rivers are polluted, farmers can ’t use the water for their crops. Tony: And in some places, pollution from factories spreads over cities and villages. It makes people ill, and may even kill them. Pollution is a danger to our health. Betty: And there are so many cars on the roads. They use so much oil and cause pollution as well.Daming: But we’re only students. We can’t do anything about factories and cars. Betty: It’s no use talking about things we can’t do. we’ve got to think of things we can do!Daming: Such as …? Lingling: Do you think we can make our school a green school? Daming: What’s a green school? Lingling: At a green school, every class collects waste which can be recycled or used again. Then the school sells the waste and uses the money to help students in poor areas. Daming: Nice idea! Betty: Students at a green school also learn ways to save energy and recycle at home. That means less waste. Tony: That’s a good idea. Though pollution is heavy now, I don’t think it’s hopeless. If everyone starts to do something, the world will be saved.23

Unit 2Repeat these three words daily: reduce, reuse and recycle.How to be greenHow green are you? Answer these questions and find out. .Do you walk or ride a bike to school? .Do you buy new clothes just because they are modern? .Do you turn off the lights when you leave the room? .Do you take your own bag when shopping and not ask for a plastic bag? .Do you buy drinks in bottles? And what do you do with the bottles whey they are empty? .Do you divide the waste into things to recycle and things to throw away? We all need a healthy environment, but we produce waste every day, and it is harmful to our environment. Repeat these three words daily: reduce, reuse and recycle. Reduce Reduce means “use less”. Do not waste things. It saves money and causes less pollution. Do not order more food than you can finish. Turn off the lights when you do not need them. Before you buy something new, think whether it is really necessary, because maybe the old one is just as good! Reuse Reuse means “use again”. Use things for as long as possible. Look after them so that they will last. Repair them if possible. Do not throw them away and buy new ones. Do not use paper cups or paper bags. It is better to use china and cloth bags because they can be used many times. Recycle Recycle means “change things into something else to be reused”. Although it takes energy to change things into something else, it is better than throwing things away or burning them. We throw tons of rubbish away each year, and we have to make a change. Divide your rubbish into plastic, glass, paper and rubber. Develop a recycling policy for the whole community. Buy products such as recycled paper to help save trees. We cannot hope for rapid change, but let’s take these simple steps today so that we will save the world for our grandsons and granddaughters tomorrow.24
