Two girls were sick in hospital. They were in the same room. One girl sat up on her bed for one and a half hours every afternoon. Her bed was next to the room's only windows. The other girl had to spend all of her time lying on the bed. Every afternoon when the girl by the window sat up, she would describe to her roommate all the things she could see outside the window. "There is a lovely lake in the park. Ducks and swans are playing on the water while children are sailing their model boats. Young lovers are walking arm in arm around flowers of every color. Some old people are sitting on the benches and chatting happily". As the girl descried all these, the other lying on the bed would close her eyes and imagine the beautiful scene.
Days and weeks passed, one morning, the girl by the window died. Then the other girl moved to the bed by the window. She took her first look at the real world outside.

In the United States, most children begin attending school when they are five years old. Public education is free and most children go to school near their homes. School in those early years is fun. The children learn to read and write. But they also play games and go on trips. There is no reason at such an early age for them to hit the books.
The situation changes as children become older. The subjects become more difficult. Students must learn about world history, and the life sciences. Tests become more common. Pressure is growing to hit the books, study hard, and advance. However, most serious students only really begin hitting the books for long hours when they reach high school.
High school students who hope to continue their education at a college or university must take a special test called the S----A----T. The test has two parts. The first part tests the student's ability with numbers and mathematical skills. The second part tests the student's ability in the English language.
The S----A----T test is very important. A high school student who gets a high score on the two parts of the test has a good chance to enter a top American college. For this reason, many students hit the books for months to prepare for the S----A----T.

Washington D.C. is the capital of the United States. It's the center of national government. It's a busy, working city with a large population. But what is more, Washington is also a city of history and culture. It is home to many famous and interesting public buildings and monuments, many of which are connected with the federal government.
Washington was created in 1790, when Congress (the highest lawmaking body of the United States) decided to place the nation's new capital in the east of the country. It was built halfway between the northern and southern states of America. And of course it was named after George Washington, the first President of the United States.
There are many tourist sights in Washington. Perhaps the most important tourist sight is the Capital Building. This houses the Congress.
Another world famous building in Washington is the White House. This is the home and office of the President of the United States. Most visitors are, however, surprised by how small the White House actually is.
