According to his GoFundMe page, Eddie Maltsby Jr. became blind when he was 11 due to sarcoidosis, a rare disease that affects many organs. However, Maltsby has committed to bringing light to people in need by playing music on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida, and donating what he can to them, WTSP reported.
In addition to playing for the public, Maltsby also hosts a radio show on WRXB called “Blind Boy Radio”. While on air, the musician gives away groceries, cash and other goods to grateful callers. To date, Maltsby has donated $2,000, but his funds are running low—even with help from sponsors. That's why he's turning to the community for help.
Maltsby has set up a GoFundMe campaign in the hope of collecting $25, 000 to aid struggling people in the community.
While Maltsby's benevolent (慈善的) spirit is inspiring, it's often the people with little to spare who demonstrate how easy it is to part with money.
This past winter, for example, when Dominique HarrisonBentzen, a British student, did't have any way to get home, a homeless man gave her all the money he had—$4.60—for a taxi. She returned the favor by setting up a fundraiser for the kind man, which has since collected more than 32,000 British pounds(over $50,000).
“I hope my campaign will help people think a little more about the people around them，” HarrisonBentzen told The Mirror.“If people can see what I am doing then maybe they can take the time to just stop and talk to a homeless person, hear their story.”
21. What can be learned about Eddie Maltsby Jr.?
A. He has collected $25,000.
B. He's going to keep on giving.
C. He was born with blindness.
D. He plays music to earn a living.
22. Why does Eddie Maltsby Jr. ask for help?
A. He earns less and less money.
B. His funds have been used up.
C. He needs more people to donate.
D. His family give no support to his campaign.
23. Which of the following words best describe Eddie Maltsby Jr.?
A. Creative and determined. B. Talented and friendly.
C. Cooperative and optimistic. D. Helpful and generous.
24. Dominique HarrisonBentzen's story is used to ________.
A. get people involved in community service
B. prove that giving is indeed important
C. encourage people to share and give
D. show the poor are more willing to give
I grew up in a family that ate dinner together every evening. Although my parents enjoyed wine, they rarely drank during the week and were always in moderation (节制). As for myself, I wasn't interested in alcoholic drinks and neither were my high school friends.
So when I arrived on campus for my first year of university life, I was a bit shocked. Many different events had been organized for the freshmen, but they all had one thing in common—alcohol, and plenty of it. Not wanting to be left out, I joined a few of the events. But I always returned home early, feeling disappointed. Your personality, interests and experiences didn't matter at all, only how many alcoholic drinks you could absorb before passing out (喝醉). It seemed shallow to me I wanted to get to know my new classmates, not how fast they could down a pint of beer.
Gradually, however, I realized that real friends don't judge you by how much you can drink and there were other ways of making friends. I joined a photography society, took a first aid course, and every weekend I went cycling with a classmate. I found that by engaging in these activities and sharing the fun of learning new skills together in a group, I formed much stronger bonds with my new friends than even the strongest alcoholic drinks could encourage.
Another valuable lesson I learned is that it's perfectly okay to say “No” if you don't want to drink. However, in many Western societies, especially the UK, binge drinking (狂喝)has become the norm. Many people who drink don't necessarily want to, but they give in to the peer pressure (同伴压力)—they're afraid to say “No”.
25. What shocked the author when he entered university?
A. The strange campus. B. The popularity of alcohol.
C. The drunken classmates. D. The limited activities.
26. Why did the author return home early from the events at first?
A. He wasn't good at drinking.
B. He had no familiar classmates.
C. He hated the way people got along.
D. He was left out by the organizers.
27. How did the author finally make real friends at university?
A. By saying “No” to alcoholic drinks.
B. By staying away from group activities.
C. By giving in to the peer pressure.
D. By joining people with common interests.
My daddy worked hard to support our family in the 1940s. The year I was eight, we barely had two dimes (十分硬币) for the coming Christmas.
Our neighbor suggested that we hang lights in our yard to lift the Christmas spirit along our street. However, we had just enough money for things to decorate our living room.
There was a hardware store (五金店) down the street. I wanted to see how much the lights cost. On the way I spotted a dime on the sidewalk. Joy! How lucky I was to have found 10 cents !
In the store, I stared longingly at the strings of outdoor lights. I knew I could not buy even the smallest set. Then I saw the single lights, and my hope rose. I got excited when discovering a single bulb cost only 20 cents.
Walking home, I was thinking how I might get another dime. Maybe if I helped my grandma gather evergreens, she would give me a few cents. As expected, Grandma asked for my help on the weekend. But I didn't get a cent when we finished.
Several days later, Uncle Charlie dropped in, and gave each child a dime. We jumped with delight. Just as soon as I could, I went back to the hardware store and bought a single colored bulb. Back home, I climbed the ladder and replaced the clear light with the colored one. After the sunset, I switched on the light and, unobserved, went outside to see the lovely colored light in the darkness.
When Daddy came home, he asked, “Who put the light on the front door?”
“I did, Daddy!”I smiled up at him.“Doesn't it look Christmassy?”
He bent down and, with tears in his eyes, took me gently in his arms.
Our house was wearing some holiday spirit, and it looked beautiful.
28. The neighbor suggested that the author's family ________.
A. buy outdoor lights B. decorate the yard
C. beautify the living room D. lighten the street
29. Why did the author feel excited when he found the single bulbs in the store?
A. Because he was attracted by their lovely colors.
B. Because he believed he could get the money for one.
C. Because they were more beautiful than strings of lights.
D. Because they were so cheap that he could buy one immediately.
30. How did the author get another dime?
A. His grandma gave it to him as a reward.
B. He found it on the way home.
C. His uncle gave it to him as pocket money.
D. He earned it by taking a parttime job.
31. Why did the author's father take him in his arms?
A. His father was moved by his caring behavior.
B. His father was affected by his merry feelings.
C. His father was touched that he had helped his grandma.
D. His father was proud that he had replaced the bulb by himself.
Heavy rain continues to attack South Carolina after a powerful storm flooded much of the state over the weekend. Emergency workers are going doortodoor to search for anyone who may still be trapped in their homes. At least seven deaths have been blamed on the storm so far.
The storm poured more than 20 inches of rain on one area of Columbia, South Carolina's capital. Many cars ended up completely under water on flooded streets. Even weather experts said they were surprised by the amount of rain the storm poured on the state. On Sunday, Governor Nikki Haley said the storm is the kind seen only once in a thousand years.
Earlier in the week, weather experts had predicted Hurricane Joaquin to attack the East Coast, but the hurricane turned away in the Atlantic Ocean. Despite the shift, Shepherd says tropical moisture (水分) from the hurricane helped boost the power of the rainstorm in the Carolinas and several neighboring states.
According to the National Weather Service, Sunday was the wettest day in the history of Columbia. The rainfall total at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport was 6.87 inches, the highest oneday level ever recorded there.
The flooding caused water main breaks that have threatened the drinking water supply for South Carolina's capital city. Columbia officials told all 375 000 of its water customers to boil water before drinking it. Worse still, many roads and bridges across the state were washed out or under water.
One of the hardest hit areas in Columbia was near Gills Creek, where a weather station recorded over 20 inches of rain over the weekend. Rescue crews used boats to save the family of Jeff Whalen, whose house backed up on the stream.
Columbia residents have also been helping one another. Rawlings LaMotte, 38, said he and a friend got into a small motorboat and transported several people to safety.
32. Governor Nikki Haley said the storm is the kind seen only once in a thousand years because ________.
A. it came so suddenly B. it was so serious
C. it killed many emergency workers D. it failed to be predicted
33. The underlined word “boost” in Paragraph 3 most probably means “________”.
A. reduce B. control C. increase D. cause
34. What damage was caused to South Carolina?
A. Hundreds of people were killed in the storm.
B. Drinking water supply was cut off.
C. Many roads and bridges were destroyed.
D. A large number of people lost their homes.
35. The best title for the passage would be ________.
A. Damage Caused by a Natural Disaster
B. Hurricane Striking the United States
C. Rescue Operations in a Storm
D. Flooding in South Carolina

语篇解读：这是一篇记叙文。Eddie Maltsby Jr.因肉状瘤病而失去视力，但他依旧赚钱帮助他人。
【解题思路】根据第一段中的“and donating what he can to them”和第二、三段的内容可知，他已经捐赠了很多钱物，并发起了GoFundMe运动，希望能筹到25 000美元来帮助他人，由此可推知，Eddie Maltsby Jr.会继续付出，帮助他人。
【解题思路】根据第二段中的“To date，Maltsby has donated $2,000，but his funds are running low—even with help from sponsors.That's why he's turning to the community for help”可知Eddie Maltsby Jr.求助的原因是他的资金快花完了，即他需要更多的人捐款。
【解题思路】根据文中的“Maltsby has committed to bringing light to people in need”“While on air，the musician gives away groceries，cash and other goods to grateful callers”和“Maltsby's benevolent(慈善的)spirit”可知，Eddie Maltsby Jr.既乐于助人又大方。
【解题思路】根据第四段中的“it's often the people with little to spare who demonstrate how easy it is to part with money”和第五段中的“for example”可知，作者用Dominique HarrisonBentzen的例子表明穷人更乐意付出——帮助别人。
【长难句分析】She returned the favor by setting up a fundraiser for the kind man, which has since collected more than 32,000 British pounds(over $50,000).
分析：此句为复合句。句中She returned the favor by setting up a fundraiser for the kind man为主句，by setting up a fundraiser for the kind man为方式状语;which引导非限制性定语从句，其先行词为a fundraiser。
译文：她为那个好心的人发起了一个筹款活动来报恩。从那以来，该活动已经筹集了超过32 000英镑(超过50 000美元)的钱。
【解题思路】依据第二段的第一句和第二句中的“but they all had one thing in common—alcohol, and plenty of it”可知，到了大学之后作者对大学里喝酒成风的情况感到震惊。
【解题思路】根据第二段的第—句“Our neighbor suggested that we hang lights in our yard to lift the Christmas spirit along our street”可知答案为B。
【解题思路】根据第四段的“I knew I could not buy even the smallest set.Then I saw... my hope rose”以及本段最后一句可知，单个彩灯很便宜，所以当他发现他能买得起单个的彩灯时，他很兴奋。所以答案为B。
【解题思路】 根据第六段的第一句“Several days later，Uncle Charlie dropped in，and gave each child a dime”可知答案为C。
【解题思路】根据倒数第二段中的“He bent down and，with tears in his eyes”可知，爸爸当时被作者的行为感动了。
【关键句】Even weather experts said they were surprised by the amount of rain the storm poured on the state.(第二段倒数第二句)
【关键句】Worse still，many roads and bridges across the state were washed out or under water.(倒数第三段最后一句)
【关键句】Heavy rain continues to attack South Carolina after a powerful storm flooded much of the state over the weekend.(第一段第一句)
【亮点句积累】At least seven deaths have been blamed on the storm so far. (第一段最后一句)
分析：本句话的亮点在“blame on”这个短语及被动语态的运用上。blame sth.on sb./sth.意为“将……归咎于……”。
【解题思路】结合空前的“certain steps you can take to...”和空后的“Be sure to use and practice them”可知，仅知道技巧还不够，还需将这些技巧付诸实践，故选F。
【解题思路】由空后的“mark your place either by pointing to each word...or by placing a sheet of paper...”可知此段主要讲述的是追踪阅读过程，故选C。
【解题思路】由本段小标题Read aloud以及空后的“If you must remain silent”可知，G项“如果你在自己的房间里，你可以放声阅读”符合语境。
【解题思路】由空后的“write down”“the notes”可知，本段主要讲的是做笔记，故选A。
【解题思路】由空后的“It will also...”可知，空处讲的是做笔记的好处，故D项符合语境。
41.D 根据下文的“She told me that her daughter had an upset stomach and would throw up continuously”和“the mother had lost her __3__”可知，这对母女都看起来很焦虑(uncomfortable)，故选D。
43.C 参见上题解析。下文的“the purse also had her phone”是提示。
44.D 根据第10空后面的“the official”可知，此处指钱包里有一位重要的官员的电话，故选D。

50.B 根据语境可知，打了几个电话后，她们终于打通了那位官员的电话。get through表示“(用电话)联系上”。故选B。
60.C 此处表示一些很容易做到的事情却对别人有很重要的意义。故选C。make a difference“有影响，有作用”。
【解题思路】根据前后的bottles, beach toys可知设空处应为名词，且为名词复数形式。
【解题思路】people eat fish为主句。其后为定语从句，先行词为fish。将先行词代入定语从句后可知先行词在定语从句中作主语，且先行词指“物”，故用that或which引导。
【解题思路】“__8__ (kill) by pollution”作定语修饰名词ocean creatures。kill与ocean creatures之间为逻辑上的被动关系，故用过去分词形式。

“Decha! Come over, we need someone who knows what they’re doing in goal!” I yelled.
“I can’t! I have to do something/’ he shouted hack, as he continued to walk down the dusty road. The village shops were in the other direction and, as far as I knew, this road went through the jungle.
“It won’t take long. Just half an hour! They’re killing us! It’s 3-0 already, we really need you,” I begged. It was unlike Decha to turn down a game of football.
“Where are you going anyway?” I asked as I fell into step with him.
“It’s just a …” he was looking over his shoulder at the other boys, but they weren’t paying us any attention. “You can come if you like.” he whispered. I don’t know what it was, but suddenly my interest was aroused. Decha was a football addict. I knew my friend was up to something.
“OK,” I said casually, trying to hide my curiosity.
We walked along in silence for a few minutes until we went into the jungle. The temperature dropped instantly. There were no pathways, but it was clear that someone had passed through recently.
“We need to be really quiet.” Decha warned suddenly. “We don’t want to frighten them.” He shifted a bag that I hadn’t even noticed onto his shoulder. My heart was beating wildly.
Eventually, we stopped at a pile of fallen leaves. Inside the pile, four small furry bodies lay there with their mouths wide open. Taking out some bread from his bag, Decha said, “Their mother is hurt and can’t feed herself, but she’s getting stronger every day.”

Scientists have been studying how people use money for long. Now they’re finding some theories may apply to one group of monkeys.
Researchers recently taught six monkeys how to use money. They gave the monkeys small metal disks(圆片)that could be used like cash and showed them some yummy apple pieces. The monkeys soon figured out that if they gave one of the disks to a scientist, they’d receive a piece of apple in return.
If you think that is all the monkeys can figure out, you are wrong. Two researchers, Jake and Allison, acted as apple sellers in the experiments. The monkeys were tested one at a time and had 12 disks to spend in each experiment. Jake always showed the monkeys one apple piece, while Allison always showed two pieces. But that’s not necessarily what they gave the monkeys. The number of apple pieces given for a disk was determined at random.
Experiment One: Allison showed two pieces of apples but gave both piece only half the time. The other half, she took one piece away and gave the monkey just the remaining piece. Jake, on the other hand, always gave exactly what he showed: one piece for each disk. The monkeys chose to trade more with Allison.
Experiment Two: Allison continued to sometimes gave two pieces and sometimes one piece. But now, half the time, Jake gave the one apple piece he was showing, and half the time he added a bonus. Guess what? The monkeys chose to trade more with Jake.
In the first experiment, the monkeys correctly figured out that if they traded with Allison, they’d end up with more treats. In the second one, when a monkey received two pieces from Jake, it seemed like a gain. When Allison gave the monkey only one piece instead of the two she showed, it seemed like a loss. The monkeys preferred trading with Jake because they’d rather take a chance of seeming to win than seeming to lose.
We also sometimes make silly business decisions just to avoid the feeling that we’re getting less, even when we’re not. Would you have made the same choices?
32. What conclusion might experts draw from the first experiment?
A. People are smarter in terms of finance.
B. It’s easy to teach monkeys how to trade.
C. Business theories can apply to all monkeys.
D. The monkeys show certain business sense.
33. What does “a bonus” in paragraph 5 refer to?
A. A coin. B. A chance. C. A metal disk. D. An apple piece.
34. Why did the monkeys choose to trade more with Jake in the second experiment?
A. Because they didn’t like the feeling of losing.
B. Because they get more apple pieces from Jake.
C. Because Jake always gave them two apple pieces.
D. Because the apple pieces from Jake were yummy.
35. What could be the best title for the passage?
A. Disk for Apple: Who to Trade with?
B. Shopping for Bargain: Same or different?
C. Moneky’s Business Sense: Smart or Silly?
D. People’s Business Decision: Lose or Gain?
It’s an unquestioned truth of modern life: we are starved for time. We try our best to save bits of time here and there. Add it up, and we will finally get to everything we want to do. But bits of time here and there. Add it up, and we will finally get to everything we want to do. But this idea has been completely backward. 36 We build the lives we want, and then time saves itself.
Do we really have no time? “I don’t have time, ”often means “It’s not a priority (优先事项). ”Time is highly flexible. We cannot make more time. However, time will stretch (延展)to accommodate what we choose to put into it. No one will leave the broken water heater aside. So not doing something is not a matter of lacking time;37Actually, it’s a matter of choice.
How do we treat our priorities? First, we need to figure out what our priorities are. Actually we may give ourselves a performance review. What three to five things did we do that made it so amazing? Next, we can write them into next year’s performance review. We will have a list of six to ten goals we can work on in the next year. 38
39 Scientists find a really good time to do this is Friday afternoon. Friday afternoon is what an economist might call a “low opportunity cost” time. Most of us are not sitting there on Friday afternoons saying, “I am excited to make progress toward my personal and professional priorities right now. ”But we are willing to think about what those should be. So take a little bit of time Friday afternoon, and make ourselves a three-category priority list:career, relationships, self.
It’s about looking at the whole of one’s time and seeing where the good aspects can go. There is time. 40 And when we focus on what matters, we can build the lives we want in the time we’ve got.
A. it’s that I’m too busy for it.
B. it’s that I don’t want to do it.
C. When do we plan our priorities?
D. Make sure there’s time for the important things.
E. We don’t build the lives we want by saving time.
F. Even if we are busy, we have time for what matters.
G. And then we need to break these down into doable steps.

friends. Besides, I can introduce Chinese culture to children in England, which will surely promote the understanding between the two nations.
I am confident to perform well in the job. Firstly, I am fluent in Chinese and English as well.
Additionally, I am cooperative and creative in my work, which I believe will give me an advantage over other applicants.
Working for the Confucius Classroom has always been my dream, so I’d appreciate it if you

Our nonprofit organization had just received a large donation of clothing. As three of us walked home for dinner, we saw a woman begging by the bridge. She was old and had no legs. She shivered in her thin sari(纱巾), which offered little protection from the cold wind. Her hunger forced her to beg. My friends and I looked at each other：here was a perfect opportunity, but first it was necessary to do a little bit of research.
We went up to the woman to hear her story. She spoke very little due to her poor health and fear, but we learned enough. She lived alone in her small home. She had no one to look after her and ate whatever people gave her. The desire to help her grew stronger. After speaking to her, we headed back to get something to keep her warm. Finding the perfect sweater, we set out again to see the woman. This time, the fear was replaced by distrust as we presented her with the sweater.
“Are you robbers?” she asked. “You came here before and are back so suddenly with clothes.” I was surprised by her principles.Even in her state, she did not want to wear anything that was stolen and gained through ill means.
“No, we are out doing service work.” Her shoulders relaxed a bit. I then helped her put the sweater on and said, “Please don't sell the sweater.” “I swear, I won't,” she said.
A week later, I was out walking with my mother to get some food when I saw the woman again. This time the picture was a little different. She was still begging, but with the gray sweater wrapped around her body and a smile on her face when she saw us. I guarantee that the smile on my face was bigger.

Do you often feel that you haven’t afford got enough time to carry out all the plans drawn up at the beginning of the year, and a new year is drawing near unexpectedly? If you have the same feeling, you are not alone. It feels like time speeds up every year.
Scientists claim that over thousands of years, great changes have taken place. However, time is mysterious and unique. No matter what happens in the world, time seems to turn a blind eye to the outside world. Whether it is in the past, at present, or in the future, time would not vary with the development of the world. It remains the same and operates at a relatively steady speed.
According to a recent study, smart phones，tablets and other digital products have trained our brains to process more information, causing us to think time is passing faster than it really is. Even just reading a simple advertisement on the digital device, the people who were experimented on thought time passed more quickly, compared with the other group that read a long monologue(独白)from a real book.
“It’s almost as though we’re trying to keep step with the technology, and do things more quickly and more efficiently,” Dr. Mcoughlin from James Cook University said.“It seems like there’s something about technology itself that speeds up our pacemakers which measure the passing of time.”
Researchers note that in order to stop time from rushing by, we should reduce the time spent online and prevent the pacemaker moving fast .The findings prove what most people have known: we need to stop and smell the roses.
28. Which of the following is TRUE according to the scientists?
A. People have known clearly about time. B. Time is something that never changes.
C. People can change the feature of time. D. Time usually keeps pace with our life.
29. What makes us feel that time is getting faster?
A. The healthy lifestyle. B. Reading a lot of books.
C. The high tech products. D. The development of the brain.
30. What's the attitude of Dr. McLoughlin to the study?
A. Opposed. B. Approving. C. Doubtful. D. Unconcerned.
31. By saying "we need to stop and smell the roses", the author means_________.
A. we must know how to plant roses
B. it's necessary to avoid using the Internet
C. people can keep working without a break
D. we should learn to slow down and enjoy our life.
Imagine that 7 out of 10 working Americans got fired tomorrow. What would they all do? It’s hard to believe it would happen. But that is what the industrial revolution did to the labor force of the early 19th century.
Two hundred years ago, 70 percent of American workers lived on the farm. Today automation(自动化) has eliminated all but one percent of their jobs, replacing them with machines. But these workers did not sit, doing nothing. Instead, automation created hundreds of millions of jobs in completely new fields. Those who once farmed were then working in factories that produced farm equipment, cars, and other industrial products.
It may be hard to believe, but before the end of this century, 70 percent of today’s jobs will likely be replaced by automation. Yes, dear reader, even you will have your job taken away by machines. In other words, robot replacement is just a matter of time, First, speedy robots being able to lift 150 pounds all day long will carry boxes, sort them, and load them onto trucks. Fruit and vegetable picking will continue to be robotized until no humans pick outside of specialty farms. Next, The work of cleaning in offices and schools will be taken over by late-night robots. The trucks will be driven by robots.
We need to let robots take over. They will do jobs we have been doing, and do them much better than we can. They will do jobs we can’t do at all. They will do jobs we never imagined even needed to be done, and they will help us discover new jobs for ourselves and new tasks that expand who we are. They will let us focus on becoming more human than we were.
32. What happened in the early 19th century?
A. Some working Americans in factories got fired.
B. Jobless workers had no choice but to sit there doing nothing at all.
C. Many American workers had to leave factories to work on the farm.
D. The industrial revolution caused many Americans to lose their jobs.
33. How does the author support the underlined statement in Paragraph 3?
A. By giving advice. B. By giving examples.
C. By following the order of time. D. By explaining cause and effect.
34 How does the author feel about robots taking over our jobs?
A. Afraid. B. Happy. C. Puzzled. D. Angry.
35. What does the author want to tell us in the text ?
A. Why robots should take over our jobs.
B. 70% of working Americans will be jobless.
C. The industrial revolution led to the automation.
D. Robots will do more things for us to live better.

“Our stresses and ___50___ in life are like that glass of water. If we ___51___ our burdens all the time, sooner or later, we will feel exhausted, even unable to ___52___.”
___53___ you have to do is put all your burdens down, as ___54__ in the evening as possible. Don’t carry them through the evening into the night; by doing this, we can get ___55___ next morning and are ___56___ to move forward.
More often than not, life gets terrible when we ___57___ too much. And the moment you ___58___ your burdens, you’ll find yourself feeling so much more relaxed.
So rather than being upset and feeling ___59___ for yourself, start doing something about it. After all, life is too short to ___60___ yourself to anything that is not making you happy.

During my last winter holiday,I went to countryside with my father to visit my grandparents. I a big change there. The first time I went there, they were living in a small house with dogs, ducks, and animals. Last winter when I went again, they had a big separate house to raise dozens of . They also had a small pond they raised fish. My grandpa said last summer they earned quite a lot by the fish. I felt that their life had improved. At the end of our trip, I told my father that I planned to return every two years, he agreed.
With the approach of Senior 3 studies, students who have almost finished Senior 2 are under increasingly great pressure, which has affected some students’ life. This prevents them sleeping well and causes problems with their health. In order to improve the condition, I’d like to offer some advice.
First and foremost, combine work with rest. Keep in mind that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Furthermore, it is important to keep a healthy and balanced diet. Staying away from junk food and eating healthy food like vegetables and fish will benefit you. In addition, go outdoors and take regular exercise, for physical exercise is an effective way to get rid of pressure. Last but not least, good health means being both physically and mentally healthy. Keeping an optimistic state of mind will contribute to a good physical state.

M: What would you like to eat? In fact people in different parts of the world have very different ideas about what is good to eat or drink If you were all Eskimo in the North Pole, you would enjoy the raw meat from seals. 18.If you live in the desert, you would prefer the roasted meat of sheep and goats. Americans cook the meat of many different animals. Perhaps their favorite meat is steak. Americans also eat a lot of chicken as well as fish, or other food from the sea. Some people in India do not eat fish or meat at all.
Among the most popular hot drinks are coffee and tea.○19Coffee is popular in Northern Europe and in the Middle East. Some people put cream and sugar in the coffee. But in the United States, many people drink their coffee black that is without cream or sugar. Tea is the national drink in China. In the east, people drink tea without sugar. ○20But in England where it is almost a national drink, many people use both sugar and hot or cold milk in their tea, and others use lemons.
