When teaching handwriting, one difficulty is teaching the left-handed child. The traditional
policy has been to push all children to write with their right hands. Parents and teachers both try
to prevent the child from using his left hand. On the other hand, psychologists have clearly shown
that some persons are naturally left-handed and that it is much more difficult for them to do any
skillful act with the right hand than with the left hand. Some believe, furthermore, that to force a
left-handed child to write with his right hand may make him nervous and may cause speech
problems. There seems to be some cases in which this is true, although in most children who
change over to using their right hand, no negative effects are noticed. In addition to these
difficulties, left-handedness sometimes seems to cause mirror writing from right to left and
reversals in reading, as reading

Bicycle sharing systems are also known as yellow bicycle programs, white bicycle programs,
public bikes or free bikes. They are increasingly popular in Europe now. Paris has the world's
largest urban cycle rental system.
This is a bike rental station in Paris. The workers are showing how to use a new
self-service bike. They say that Paris will become green capital of bikesand they plan to
park 20,000 bi-cycles at 1,600 stations. Paris created this plan to reduce waste gas
At a rental station, you only have to put your credit card into the machine to rent a bike. It
provides French, German, English and Chinese services. If you ride the bike for only 30 minutes to
relax, you needn't pay for it. A two-hour bike rent only costs you 4 Euros.
These stations work for 24 hours every day, so a bike is rented for 10 to 14 times a day. In
this way there are 200,000 people using bikes a day.
In the past few years, Paris has encouraged its people to ride bikes, but something unhappy
has happened now and then. Some people break the traffic rules during rush hours. Some park
their bikes everywhere. So how to park their bikes is a problem that Pairs will face. But this
project is still a helpful way to improve its traffic environment.

A. To reduce accidents.
B. To improve the traffic environment.
C. To relax travelers.
D. To attract travelers from other countries.

Most people feel lonely sometimes, but it usually only lasts between a few minutes and a
few hours. This kind of loneliness is not serious. In fact, it is quite normal. For some people,
though, loneliness can last for years. Psychologists are studying this phenomenon in an attempt
to better understand long-term loneliness. These researchers have already identified three
different types of loneliness.
The first kind of loneliness is temporary. This is the most common type. It usually
disappears quickly and does not require any special attention. The second kind, situational
loneliness, is a natural result. For example, the death of a loved one, or moving to a new place.
Although this kind of loneliness can cause physical problems, such as headaches and
sleeplessness, it usually does not last for more than a year. Situational loneliness is easy to
understand and to predict.
The third kind of loneliness is the most severe. Unlike the second type, chronic loneliness
usually lasts more than two years and has no specific cause. People who experience habitual
loneli-ness have problems socializing. Unfortunately, many chronically lonely people think there is
little or nothing they can do to improve their condition.
Many researchers agree that the loneliest people are between the ages 18 and 25, so a
group of psychologists decided to study a group of college students. They found that more than
50% of the students were situational lonely at the beginning of the term as a result of their new
circumstances, but had adjusted after a few months. Thirteen percent were still lonely after
seven months due to shyness and fear. They felt very uncomfortable meeting strangers, even
though they understood that their fear was not reasonable. The situational lonely students
overcame their loneliness by making new friends, but the chronically lonely remained unhappy
because they were afraid to do so.
Psychologists are trying to find ways to help habitually lonely people for two reasons. First
of all, they are unhappy and unable to socialize. Secondly, researchers have found a connection
be-tween chronic loneliness and serious illness such as heart disease. While temporary and
situational loneliness can be a normal, healthy part of life, chronic loneliness can be a very sad,
and some-times dangerous condition.

A sense of humor helps us from several aspects. As awareness of the benefits of humor in-
creases, most of us want to get all the laughs we can. It seems that almost every day there is an-
other new discovery about the power of humor to help us physically, mentally, emotionally, and
spiritually. 46 .
47 . Many people mistakenly believe that we are born with a sense of humor. They
think that when it comes to a sense of humor,
What is true, however, is that the ability to laugh and smile is actually something we are born
with. For example, we laugh when we are tickled under the arm, even without thinking about
how to react.
A sense of humor can be developed in our life. The parts of the brain and central nervous
sys-tem that control laughing and smiling are mature at birth in human infants, but that is not the
same thing as having a sense of humor. (After all, when a baby laughs in his small bed we don't
rush over and say, 48 . Don't be nervous before others
and try to laugh at yourself--then you will make them laugh too.
A sense of humor means more than telling jokes. Humor includes a lot more than laughing
and joke telling. 49 . More than jokes, a sense of humor requires being willing and able to see
the funny side of life's situations as they happen. In fact, one of the best definitions of a sense of
A sense of humor helps people to better enjoy life. There may be a thousand different ways
to express your sense of humor, but joke telling is only one of those ways. As more is discovered
about how humor benefits our life ,more people will be able to see and enjoy the humor when
they are in a difficult situation. 50 .

B. A sense of humor can be expressed in two ways.
C. Your sense of humor is something you can develop over a lifetime.
D. Every system of the body responds to laughter in some important or positive way.
E. Life depends on air, food and water, but it is made easier to live with a good sense of hu-
F. Many people are worried about no good sense of humor because they aren't good joke
G. Some people doubt their intelligence and emotion because they aren't good at telling sto-ries.
Guinea pigs are intelligent and quiet animals. They may develop a close bond with you and
may reward you with chirps, purrs, squeaks or whistles. Guinea pigs do not 51 very much if
you do not spend much time with them. However, if you spend time with them, they will become
more responsive towards you.
Guinea pigs are very active and they enjoy running through 52 (tunnel) and mazes. If
you give them a toy, they will play with it. 53 you have more than one guinea pig, you may
observe that they like to play games of chase with each other. Guinea pigs are social animals.
They like to interact with others. However, be 54 (carefully) not to overcrowd their homes.
This is because it is very stressful for them and they may attack each other. Do not change their
food or environ-ment as they do not like changes.
