Now it's time for us to learn words and theirstories- our weekly program about common,everyday expressions in American English.Today we are talking about the word "leap" and its expressions.
February 29th is called "aleap day". And the entire 12-month period with a February 29thin it is called "a leap year". This year,2020 is such a year. Thesomewhat unusual day of February 29th h comes up on the calendaronly every four years. A year with a February 29th might be goodnews if you are paid by the day or the week. But it might be bad news if youwere born on a February 29th. You have to wait three years inbetween birthdays!
As a verb,the word "leap" means tojump,or to move quickly. Leap can also be a noun,meaning a jump,or a suddenmove. In a leap year,the dates jump over one day of the week. The reason for aleap day or a leap year is because our calendar does not follow the Earth'sorbit around the sun exactly. Each year,we have a little time left over. Soevery four years,we put all that time together into an extra day. It is officiallycalled an intercalary day. But I have never heard an English speaker use thatterm. "Leap day" is fine.
"Leap" is alsoan important word for two other common American expressions. One is a kind ofwarning. If you want someone to investigate a situation completely and considerthe possible results carefully before taking actions,you might say,"Lookbefore you leap"" The other expression is a phrase of hope. If youwant someone to take actions,you may say "take a leap of faith",even if not everything about a situation is known. In other words,it asks theperson to take courage and step into the unknown. Interestingly,the twophrases are completely reasonable to say to someone who is about to getmarried.
Thank you for your listening!
①April 2nd is World Autism Day. What is autism? Autism is caused by pervasive developmental disorder. Here are main behavior characteristics of autism.
②Social communication disorder,live only in their own world.
③Language communication disorder,difficult to communicate with people around.
④Repeat strange movements often,unable to accept the changes of familiar environment.
⑤From three characteristics above,people with autism have lots of trouble communicating. They look like normal people,but they experience the world in a very unique way. That is to say,the way how they deal with things and understand the world is not the same as normal people.
⑥Nowadays,the number of autism is 67 million all over the world. One in 160 children is autistic. A school in England for children with autism is finding a new use for virtual reality and VR headsets. Priors Court is a kind of school in Berkshire,southern England. The teachers at school are using high technology to help and learn more about children with autism. As children with autism have problems with places and situations they haven't experienced before well,they like what is familiar and they like their routine. VR headsets make the wearers feel like they are in different places. For example,someone wearing a VR headset can have a 360 degree view of a place as they turn around. With the video,they can even hear the sounds of the place. Teachers are using VR to introduce children to situations like visiting a shopping mall or getting on a plane. They can do so in the safety of their classroom. In addition to getting used to everyday different places in the real world,the children may learn to enjoy new experiences such as skiing or deep-sea diving.
⑦A computer teacher,Nuno Guerreiro from the school said,"We're trying a new data collection system with VR headsets at the same time. The system puts together information about each child every day:what they have eaten,how much sleep and exercise they have had and all their activities. Then it compares those facts to know how they are behaving for medical treatment." Guerreiro added the school hoped to share what it learned. "Hope to not only improve people to know more about the treatment and research of the autism,but also draw people's attention to care about autism."
Jerusha Abbott was walking to Mrs Lippett's office when she saw the back of a man. He casted a shadow on the hall. He had very long legs and arms and his shadow looked just like a daddy-long-legs spider. She turned pale and could hear her heart beating very fast,so she walked more quickly.
As Jerusha entered the office,Mrs Lippett immediately spoke,"Jerusha! Did you see the gentleman who has just left?" "I only saw his back." Jerusha replied. Mrs Lippett continued,"The gentleman only chose boys and offered them to college. But this time you were chosen."" To college! Me!" Jerusha was shocked. "In return,you must write a letter every month telling him of your progress."
In the letters,Jerusha described everything that happened in her college to Daddy-long-legs. She met new people,made friends and even gave herself a new name,Judy.
We had a sports day last Saturday. It started out with a very cheerful parade. I couldn't wait to take part in the events. I have kept training hard for several weeks. I know it is very important on the way to my further dream. I must keep myself strong and active before it. And guess what? I won the fifty-yard sprint. It was all very exciting and I felt so good at the end of the day.
I love you always,
I have been very busy these days studying for my examinations. Once the examinations are finished,our vacation will be here. I am going to the seaside to tutor a girl and her younger sister. I will teach them English and Latin. Each month,I will get fifty dollars! Please don't object to my plan. I am becoming very independent thanks to you. I hope that you have a wonderful summer,Daddy.

I was about to post this letter to you when I met Master Jervie. He has invited me to Europe as well. He said it was an important part of my education. I almost said yes. But one thing stopped me. He was almost trying to force me to go. I refuse to be forced to do anything,because I want to make my own decisions. To reply you for your kindness,I will become a wise and independent woman.
