Babies like sitting in the prams which are pushed by their mothers along the road or in the park. They sit in the prams eating,drinking,laughing or sleeping.
But have you ever heard of the Pram Race before? It is held in Hull,England once a year. You might see some people running along the road and pushing the prams as fast as they can. However,there aren't any babies in the prams,but adults instead. They jump out of the prams and drink lots of milk on the table along the road. Then they get into the prams and go on racing. The Pram Race is held to raise money for the people in need. For example,it helps to make it possible for disabled people to have wheelchairs for free.
It all started when Hull was a fishing town. Every Friday afternoon,fishermen's wives had to run,pushing the prams with their babies in. They took money to pay their bills and buy food rapidly before their husbands returned from the sea.
At the beginning only a few people were interested in the race,but now quite a lot of people including children,teenagers and the old take part in it each year. It is watched by more than three thousand people. These days,the Pram Race has become more famous in the town. People can not only watch the exciting race,but also share their joy and friendship every year. If you want to watch the Pram Race,go to Hull.

What kind of town was Hull when the Pram Race started?

Introduction：Speaking English is not only about using proper grammar．To use English correctly，you need to understand the culture in which it is spoken．Here are a number of important tips(告诫) to remember when speaking English in the USA．
General Points to Remember：
Most Americans only speak English：While it is true that more and more Americans speak Spanish，most Americans only speak English．
Americans have difficulties understanding foreign accents(口音)：Many Americans are not used to foreign accents．
Speak about location．
Talk about work：Americans commonly ask “what do you do? “It's not thought impolite(as in some countries) and is a popular topic to discuss between strangers．
Talk about sports．
Use last names with people you do not know．Always use“Ms”when addressing women．Many Americans prefer first names．
Americans prefer informal：In general，Americans prefer informal greetings and using first names or nicknames when speaking with workmates and friends．
Always shake hands．
Look your partner in the eyes．
Don't hold hands：Same sex friends do not usually hold hands or put their arms around each other in public in the USA．
Smoking is out! Smoking，even in public places，is strongly disagreed by most modern Americans．

What would be the best title for the text?
Does your child struggle in school? Is he or she afraid of reading out loud,writing an essay,or working out a math problem? While every kid has trouble with homework from time to time,if a certain area of learning keeps going wrong,it might show a learning disorder. Learning disorders,or learning disabilities,are a general term for a large number of learning problems.
A learning disability is not a problem with IQ or motivation. Kids with learning disabilities aren't lazy or slow. In fact,most are just as smart as everyone else. Their brains are just wired differently. Simply put,children and adults with learning disabilities see,hear,and understand things differently. This difference influences how they receive and process information. This can lead to trouble in learning new information and skills,and putting them to use.
It can be hard to face the possibility that your child has a learning disorder. No parents want to see their children suffer. You may wonder what it could mean for your child's future,or worry about how your kid will make it through at school. But the important thing to remember is that most kids with learning disabilities are just as smart as everyone else. They just need to be taught in ways that suit their special learning styles.
It's not always easy to tell whether a child has learning disabilities,for learning disabilities look very different from one child to another. One child may struggle with reading and spelling,while another loves books but can't understand math. Still another child may have difficulty understanding what others are saying or communicating out loud. However,some warning signs are more common than others at different ages. If you realize what they are,you'll be able to catch a learning disorder early and quickly start to help your child.

F. Do more activities at school.
In order to educate the students better,a middle school develops some new rules and behaviors to decide who is the excellent student. Some of them are as follows:
Good students love animals and care for others. April is Bird-loving Month in China. Our school will do something to celebrate it. You should join! you can learn more about animals and how to protect them. When more people work together,it brings us more happiness.
Have you ever copied someone else's work in an exam? Don't do it again! That's not something honest students should do. If you are playing computer games in your room,don't tell your parents you're doing your homework.
The Internet can be very useful for your studies. But not everything on the Internet is fit for kids. You may enter healthy websites for your homework or just for fun.
When your basketball team is losing,only working together can make your team stronger. Be friendly to the people you are with. Try to think of others,not only for yourself.
Have you ever thought people live on the moon? Maybe you'll discover Earth Ⅱ someday. Don't look down upon new ideas. All the ideas are important. You should welcome them,because new ideas make life better for everyone.
In the clinic,I asked if Michael could be retested,so the doctor tested him again. To my 1, it was the same score. Later that evening,I 2 told my husband,Frank what I had 3 that day. After talking it over,we agreed that we knew our4much better than an IQ test. We5 that Michael's score must have been a 6and we should treat him naturally as usual.
We moved to Indiana in 1962,and Michael studied at Concordia High School in the same year. He got 7 grades in the school, 8 in biology and chemistry,which was a great comfort.
Michael 9 Indiana University in 1965 as a medical student,after that,his teachers asked him to take more courses than required. In 1968,he was accepted by the School of Medicine, Yale University.
On graduation day in 1972,Frank and I 10 the ceremony at Yale11the ceremony,we told Michael about the low IQ score he got when he was six. Since that day,Michael sometimes would look at us and say jokingly, “My dear mom and dad never told me that I couldn't be a doctor,not until after I graduated from medical school!” It is his special way of thanking us for the 12we had in him.
Interestingly,Michael then asked for 13 IQ test. We went to the same clinic where he had received the test eighteen years before. This time Michael scored 126,an increase of 36 points. A result like that was supposed to be 14 .
Children often do as well as what adults,particularly parents and teachers,expect of them. That is,tell a child he is “ 15 ”,and he may play the role of a foolish child.
