China has also set up 536 Confucius Institutes(孔子学院) in more than 150 countries. Millions of students are learning Chinese language and culture there.

What would you give up to protect theenvironment? Many people have given up animal products of all kinds. They arepracticing a lifestyle called veganism(纯素主义). Somepeople choose to become vegan(素食主义者) because they areupset about the way humans treat animals.
For many people,veganism simply means eatingno meat,cheese or eggs. But the idea of saving animals also appears in thefashion and manufacturing industries(制造业).
For example,leather(皮革) is used in many products,such as shoes and clothes. Every yearmore than a billion animals,listing from horses to snakes,are killed so thatwe can use their skin to make leather products. Now,many brands are lookingfor other ways to make their products.
The sports brand Puma,for example,has madeshoes out of pineapple(菠萝) leaves. Tesla,the Americancar-maker,is reported to have stopped using leather to make its seats.
Veganism is growing in popularity. In 2017,the BBC said it was the fastest-growing lifestyle movement in the UnitedKingdom. At the same time,some news reported that a quarter of Americansbetween the ages of 25 and 34 are vegans. No wonder the magazine named 2019"theyear of the vegan".
So,if you're interested in protecting animalsand saving the environment,you might want to give veganism a try. But somebodyasks:"Is veganism healthy?" Some people worry that eating no meat atall is not good for our health. It's your personal choice to be a vegan or not.Just make sure to keep healthy as well.

At the age of 16,Einstein always played with a group of crazy kids. Because he was so busy playing,he didn't study enough and failed his final exam,
One morning,when Einstein was holding a fishing tool and was about to go fishing with his friends,his father stopped him and said seriously,"Einstein,you're so crazy about playing that you failed your exam. I'm worried about your future."
“What are you worrying about? Jack and Robert also failed,but don't they still get to go fishing?
“My boy,you can't think like that," his dad said. "There is a story that people tell in our hometown. Listen to it now."
“There were two cats playing on the top of a house. One cat was and fell down the chimney(烟囱) while holding the other cat. When the two cats climbed out of the chimney,one at the cats had soot(烟灰) on his face,while other cat's face was clean cat,the clean cat thought its face must be dirty,so it quickly ran to the riverside and washed its face. The soot-faced cat saw the clean-faced cat and thought its face was also clean,so it just walked down the street happily”
"Einstein,no one can be your 'mirror'. You have to think for yourself. If you follow others,you will never learn."
Hearing this,Einstein laid down his fishing tool and returned to his room. He studied hard and didn't follow others from then on. This allowed him to be successful.
So,what kind of people do you usually hang out with? Do they study a lot or do they just want to play all the time? Don't blindly follow others.
