In the big cities of Europe and America — London, Paris, New York, people are moving out of the city. They are usually rich families with much money, and they want to live a quieter life. They are tired of the noises and the dirty air of the city, tired of the crowded streets, crowded trains and buses. They don’t want to sit in traffic any more. They want a house with a garden, and clean air that is not polluted.
So they move out. Some don’t move very far, just a little way out of the city, to the towns near the cities. Other people move to real countryside, with sheep, cows and horses, and green fields! There, they start new lives and try to make new friends.
Not all those who move from the city to the countryside are happy. After two or three years, many people feel that it was a big mistake. There isn’t much to do. Country people are very different and aren’t always friendly.
As a result, quite a lot of people move back to the city. “It’s wonderful to see crowds in the streets and cinema lights,” they say. “I’m so glad I’m back in the city!”
24. Some city people move out of their city because of _____.
A. crowds and pollution B. friendly neighborhoods
C. making money D. cows and sheep
25. Why do some people move back to the city again? Because _____.
A. they can breathe fresh and clean air.B. there are big shops and cinema lights.
C. they still want to live their city life. D. they can make many new friends.
26. Which of the following sentence is wrong according to the passage?
A. Many people love their city’s colorful life.

D. Sometimes country people are not friendly.
From preschool to high school we have been told to “be yourself” or” be who you are”. But what do those saying even mean? Does it mean to say exactly what you are thinking, not to learn from someone else? Could it mean to act only according to your nature and not let anything else influence you?
I’ll be honest that I don’t believe in “being yourself”. I believe in becoming a better person.
Before you make a decision to come after me, let me make it clear. I am not saying that we should try to become the person like our favorite pop star or sports athlete. What I am saying is that we should all be trying to become a better person, and there is nothing wrong with using a role model(楷模) to achieve this.
I know that I am not perfect. I have my faults(过错), just like anyone else, but doesn’t it make us better to try to fix them? Let me give some examples. If your grades are getting worse because you’re getting a little lazy, you should try to become a little more hard-working. Or, if you find yourself accidentally hurting someone’s feelings because of what you said, you might want to be a little more careful of what you say. No one is perfect, but if doesn’t mean we can’t strive for perfection.
I also don’t see the problem with modeling some of your life after someone else. I still have my role models, whom I try to learn from, and I wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t model a bit of my life after them. For example, I have always admired the ideas of Mahatma Gandhi in India; I have even taken some of his lessons to heart such as “An eye for an eye makes the world go blind.”
In my mind, the present happens too fast for us to “be who we are”. By the time we have even found out who we are, that person is really only who we have been. I believe that people show themselves by who they are trying to become, not by who they are or who they have been.
27. The writer thinks that using a role model to achieve a dream is ____.
A. difficult B. creative C. helpful D. easy
28. What does the underlined phrase “strive for” mean?
A. look for B. care for C. wait for D. fight for
29. According to (根据) the passage, the writer agrees that _______.
A. we should be famous like our favorite pop star.
B. we should show others who we are trying to be.
C. it’s necessary to make our life the same as others.
D. it’s important to find out more faults about ourselves.

A. Be a Better Person B. Be Who You Are
C. Learn from Others D. Live a Better Life
