From Monday to Friday most people are busy working or studying, but in the evenings and weekends they are free and 1 themselves. Some watch television or go to the movies, others take part in sports. This is decided by their own 2 .
There are many different ways to spend our free time. Almost everyone has some kind of 3 . It may be something from colleting stamps to 4 model planes. Some hobbies are very expensive, but others don't cost anything at all. Some collections are worth 5 of money, others are valuable only to their owners.
I know a man who has a coin collection worth several 6 dollars. A short time ago he bought a rare fifty-cent piece which cost him ＄250! He was very happy about this collection and thought the price was all right. On the other hand, my youngest brother collects match boxes. He has almost 600 kinds of them, but I wonder 7 they are worth any money. However, to my brother they are quite valuable. 8 makes him happier than to find a new match box for his collection.
That's what a hobby means, I think. It is something we 9 to do in our free time just for the fun of it. The value in dollars is not 10 , but the pleasure it gives us is.

I was born in New York, but I grew up in San Francisco. I began to live in London 25 years ago. If I am asked now where I want to live forever, I would say London. But I will always be American.
San Francisco, like London, has many parks. Every day my sisters and I were taken to play in the parks as children. I didn't go to school. I only had three hours of formal education when I was five. I was sent to school in the morning but came home at noon on the first day. I said I didn't enjoy it and hadn't learned anything. My parents thought that school was unsuitable for me. They agreed with me, so I never went back to school.
Then my mother taught me and my two sisters at home, in the way of an English lady who had good education. We learned languages and reading more than sciences and maths. Sometimes she taught us herself, but we also had other teachers. They asked us to take lessons every day. About once a week we walked to Golden Gate Park. While we were walking, my mother taught me to read music. One day I noticed a little toy train in the window of a shop and I remember now how I'd like to have it. I couldn't say "r" when I was small. My mother said if I could say an "r" well, I would have the toy train. I practiced and practiced. Then one morning I woke everybody up with my "r"s. I got the toy train. I usually get the things I want in life — but I work hard for them.

Do you know why different animals or pests have their special colours? Colours in them seem to be used mainly to protect themselves.
Some birds like eating locusts. but birds cannot easily catch them. Why? It is because locusts change their colours together with the change of the colours of crops. When crops are green, locusts look green. But as the harvest time comes, locusts change to the same brown colour as crops have. Some other pests with different colours from plants are easily found and eaten by others. So they have to hide themselves for lives and appear only at night.
If you study the animal life, you'll find the main use of colouring is protecting themselves. Bears, lions and other animals move quietly through forests. They cannot be seen by hunters. This is because they have the colours much like the tree.
Have you ever noticed an even more strange act? A kind of fish in the sea can send out a kind of very black liquid when it faces danger. While the liquid spread over, the enemies cannot find it. And it immediately swims away. So it has lived up to now though it isn't strong at all.

A small man with a fat stomach got on the train at the last station before the frontier (邊境). He carried a paper bag. And four feet ducks could be seen under the cover. The man found an empty seat, put the bag in the middle of the floor, took out a newspaper and began to read. Then a policeman came in.

Food mustn't be taken out of the country." "Well, then," said the small man with a fat stomach. "Hurry up and take it. We want to go home." The policeman took the bag and went on to the next carriage.
At the next station, when they were safely across the frontier, the small man got up, smiled at the other passengers and said, "I hope they'll enjoy the ducks' feet.

This was one of my favourite games when I was a little girl. My sister and I used to play it for hours at a time. To play this game we made twenty-six small pieces of cards. On each of these cards we printed an English letter. And this is how we played it:
First, before we started to play, we decided what the game would be about. For example, we chose to play flowers.
One of us would then mix up (混合) the cards and turn over the one on top of them. If the letter on the card happened (碰巧) to be P, we would try to think, as quickly as possible, of a flower which began with P, such as pansy (紫羅蘭) or pink (石竹花). The one who first gave the name of the flower won that card. This was done with each of the twenty-six cards.
In the end the person who had more cards won the game.

Maybe the word "hello" is used more often than any other one in the English language. Every one in the United States and other countries uses the word, again and again, every day of the week.
The American inventor Thomas Edison is believed to be the first person to use "hello" on the telephone soon after the invention of it.
At first, people began their words on the telephone with "Are you there?" They were not sure the small machine could really carry voices.
Edison was a man of few words. He wasted no time. The first time he picked up the telephone, he did not ask if anyone was there. He was sure someone was there and only said "hello".
From then on, "hello" is often heard when you picked up the telephone.

Summer holiday is coming before long. During the holiday, the first thing I'll do is to get relaxed after the examinations to enter the senior middle school. I'll keep on do morning exercises every day as I did at school. In the afternoon I'll go fishing in the river if I'm free. I like playing the computer a lot. So I'm going to search the Internet and try to find some useful information. I like reading. So I'd like to spend some time reading books. My Chinese is a little weak. So I'm going to read more books on Chinese than on any other subject. On the other hand I'll help my parents do some housework as much as possible. I'd like to visit some of my friends and relatives as well.
I'm sure I will have a pleasant time this summer.
