A Once upon a time a man became a great archer(射手).He asked the king to declare him as the greatest archer of the country.The king was about to do so when an old servant of the king said, “Wait, sir. I know an old man who lives in the forest. He is a much greater archer. Let this young man go to him and learn from him for at least three years.” The man could not believe that there could be a greater archer than him,but he went and found the old man and he was! For three years he learned from him.Then one day,when he thought he had learned everything, the thought arose in him: “If I kill this old man, then I will be the greatest archer.” The old man had gone to cut wood and he was coming back carrying wood on his shoulder.The young man hid behind a tree,waiting to kill him.He shot an arrow.The old man took a small piece of wood and threw it.It struck the arrow and the arrow turned back and wounded the young man very deeply.The old man came,took out the arrow and said, “I knew that some day or other you were going to do this.That’s why I have not taught you this secret.

Nearly everyone is shy in some ways. If shyness is making you uncomfortable, it may be time for a few lessons in self-confidence. You can build your confidence by following some suggestions from doctors and psychologists. Make a decision not to hold back in conversations. What you have to say is just as important as what other people say. And don’t turn down party invitations just because of your shyness. Prepare yourself for being with others in groups. Make a list of the good qualities you have. Then make a list of ideas, experiences, and skills you would like to share with other people. Think about what you would like to say in advance. Then say it. If you start feeling self-conscious in a group, take a deep breath and focus your attention on other people. Remember, you are not alone. Other people are concerned about the impression they are making, too.

No one ever gets over being shy completely, but most people do learn to live with their shyness. Even entertainers admit that they often feel shy. They work at fighting their shy feelings so that they can face the cameras and the public. Just making the effort to control shyness can have many rewards. But perhaps the best reason to fight shyness is to give other people a chance to know more about you. 5.Where would this article probably appear? A.In a popular magazine. B.On the front page of a newspaper. C.In a science textbook. D.In an encyclopedia(百科全书). 6.The main purpose of the article is to __________ A.explain how shyness developed B.recommend ways of dealing with shyness C.persuade readers that shyness is natural D.prove that shyness can overcome 7.Which of these can you conclude from reading the article? A.Shy people never have any fun. B.Entertainers choose their work to fight shyness. C.The attempt to overcome shyness is always successful. D.The attempt to overcome shyness is always worthwhile. 8.What is the source of the suggestions for fighting shyness? A.The author of the article. B.Shy men and women. C.doctors and psychologists D.Popular entertainers. .

C Cycling for Air Ted Shred doesn’t like cars. He wants people to stop driving because cars make the air dirty. Ted had an idea. He said, “I'm going to cycle around North America. I want to show everyone that cycling is a fun way to get around. If more people ride bikes, the air will be cleaner.”

He left his hometown with $ 160 in his pocket. When he got to San Diego, he met another cyclist. The cyclist invited Ted to speak at a big meeting about the environment. He said, “We’ll pay your airfare to Texas and we’ll pay you to talk about your cycling trip.” Two hours later, Ted was on a plane to the environmental conference and to a big surprise! While he was at the conference, he met Deanna. It was love at first sight! They talked for six hours straight. The next day, Ted called Deanna and asked her to finish the trip with him. Deanna said yes, sold everything in her apartment, gave her notice at work, and was on the road with Ted 20 days later! “It was difficult at first,”said Deanna. “Ted got up every morning at 6:00 a.m., but I wanted to sleep until noon.” After a few days, they started having fun. As they cycled from Florida to Montreal and then back to Vancouver, every day was an adventure. People paid for their food in restaurants and gave them extra money. Some people gave them $ 50 or $ 100. They slept in people's backyards and drank beer with motorcycle gangs. On their way back to Vancouver, they stopped in Edmonton to visit Ted's relatives. During the stopover, they got married. People tied a “Just Married” sign and tin cans to the backs of their bikes.
