Perhaps you have heard a lot about the Internet, but what is it? The Internet is a network. It uses the telephone to join millions of computers together around the world.
Maybe that doesn’t sound very interesting. But when you’re joined to the Internet, there are lots of things you can do. You can send e-mails to your friends without any money, and they can get them in a few seconds without any money. You can also do with all kinds of information on the World Wide Web (WWW).
There are many different kinds of computers now. They all can be joined to the Internet. Most of them are small machines sitting on people’s desks at home, but there are still many others in school offices or large companies(公司).These computers are owned by people or companies, but no one really owns the Internet itself.
There are lots of places for you to go into the Internet. For example, your school may have the internet. You can use it during lessons or free time. Libraries often have computers joined to the Internet. You are welcome to use it at that place.
Thanks to the Internet, the world is becoming smaller and smaller. It is possible for you to work at home with a computer in front, getting and sending the information you need. You can buy or sell whatever you want by the Internet. But do you know 98% of the information of the Internet is in English? So what will English be like tomorrow?
1. Which is the cheapest and quickest way to send messages to your friends?
A. By post. B. By Internet. C. By telephone. D. By satellite.

A. In the office. B. At school. C. At home. D. In the company.
3. Who’s the owner of the Internet?

A. English is important in using the Internet.
B. The Internet is more and more popular.

Some people have very good memories，and can easily learn quite a long poem by heart. There are other people who can only remember things when they have said them again and again. The famous English writer，Charles Dickens，said that he could walk down any streets in London and then tell you the name of every shop he had passed. Many of the great men of the world have had wonderful memories.
A good memory is of great help in learning a language. Everybody learns his own language by remembering what he learns when he is a small child. Some children like boys and girls don’t live in their own country，and they seem to learn two languages almost as easily as one. In school，it is not so easy to learn a foreign language because students have so little time for it and they are busy with other lessons，too.
A man’s mind is rather like a camera，but it takes photos not only of what we see but also of what we feel，hear，smell and taste. When we take a real photo with a camera，there is much to do before the photo is finished and ready to show to our friends. In the same way，there is much work to be done before we can keep a picture for ever in our minds.
Memory is the diary we all carry about with us.

解析：由倒数第二段“A man’s mind is rather like a camera”可知“好记忆就像照相似的”。
One of my friends Fred did very little work when he was a student. He spent more time drinking in bars than working in the library. Once, we had to take an important exam.

I’ll bring a coin with me and throw it to decide answers. I’m sure I’ll get half the questions right in this way.” During the exam, Fred sat down and really threw the coin for half an hour when he was writing down his answers. Then he 1eft half an hour before the others. The next day he saw the teacher on the playground. “Good morning, Mr Wu,” he said, “Have you checked the papers? Have I passed?” The teacher looked at him and smiled, “Ah, it’s you, Fred. One moment, please.” Then he put his hand into his pocket and took out a coin. He threw it into the air, caught it in his hand and looked at it, “I’m very sorry, Fred. You failed.”

Harry Potter is a magical school student who wears glasses and has no parents, now he is 16 years old. He is very brave and known by everyone because he is the only person who will not die by devil. At school, he has two good friends, they are Rone and Henry. When read the book my first time, I feel very exciting and interesting. So I read it again and again, each time I have different feelings, sometimes I even feel as if I’m one of Potter’s partners. Now there are five edition of Harry Potter published and they are very popular with young students. Books about Harry Potter have sold millions of copies all over the world. Do you like Harry Potter? If you haven’t read the book yet, read it now and you’ll find a wonderful world.
