“How are you?”is a nice question. It?s a friendly way that people in the USA greet each other. But “How are you?”is also a very unusual question. It?s a question that often doesn?t need an answer. The person who asks “How are you?”hopes to hear the answer “Fine”, even if the person?s friend isn?t fine. The reason is that “How are you?”isn?t really a question and “Fine” isn?t really an answer. They are simply other ways of saying “Hello” or “Hi”.

Sometimes, people also don?t? say exactly what they mean. For example, when someone asks “Do you agree?”, the other person might think, “No, I disagree. I think you?re wrong…” but it isn?t very polite to disagree so strongly, so the other person might say “I?m not sure.” It?s a nice way to say that you don?t agree with someone. People also don?t? say exactly what they are thinking when they finish talking with other people. For example, many talks over the phone finish when one person says “I?ve to go now” Often, the person who wants to hang up gives an excuse: “someone?s at the door.” “Something is burning on the stove.” The excuses might be real, or not. Perhaps the person who wants to hang up simply doesn?t want to talk any more, but it isn?t polite to say that. The excuse is more polite, and it doesn?t hurt the other person.

Whether they are greeting each other, talking about an idea, or finishing a talk, people don?t say exactly what they are thinking. It?s an important way that people try to be nice to each other, and it?s part of the game of language.

( )When a person says “I?ve to go now” “Someone?s at the door”, the person may be______.

A. giving an excuse

B. hurting someone?s feeling

C. ill

D. asking you a question

During his life Dr. James Naismith worked as a doctor, taught P.E and wrote several books. While he never thought it very important, Dr. Naismith is today best known for one thing. He was the inventor of basketball.

Dr. James Naismith was born in Canada in 1861 and his first job was at a special sports school in the USA. One day the school principal told James he was having a problem with the students. Because of heavy snow, the students could not go outside. He told James that they needed a sport the boys could play indoors and gave the teacher two weeks to think of something.

It was on the very last day that James came up with his idea. The “birth of

basketball” is said to be on December 21, 1891, when two teams from the school played the first game. It was quite different from the basketball games of today. It had 9 players on each team and footballs

were used instead of basketballs. Soon after, the game changed to 5

players on each side, using special “basketballs” through nets.

初一(下)英语阅读材料

Although Dr. Naismith did not live to see basketball become the worldwide game it is today, in 1936, just three years before his death, basketball became an Olympic sport at the games in Berlin.

What would be the best title for this story?

A. History of Basketball

B. How Basketball Has Changed

C. Father of Basketball

D. Happy Birthday, Basketball

What?s the meaning of “dark horse”? It?s someone who wins when no one expects it. Han Xiaopeng took China?s first gold on snow. He became an Olympic “dark horse” last Thursday by winning the gold medal in men?s freestyle aerial skiing(自由式滑雪空中技巧) at Turin in Italy. He made two almost perfect jumps for the highest score. Han had never won a world gold medal before, let alone(更不用说) in the Olympics!

“I never thought this would happen,” said the 23-year-old. “I feel like I?m in a dream.” It?s China?s second gold medal at the Turin Olympics. But more important, Han?s gold was the country?s first ever in a snow sport. In 2002, China?s Yang Yang won the gold for speed skating at the winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, US.

Just because Han?s win was unexpected doesn?t mean that he didn?t work hard.Han grew up in Jiangsu Province. Before he started his training on snow, he used to be an acrobat(杂技演员) at a circus. In 1995, a coach found his talent(才能). The coach, Yang Er?qi, said Han had the agilit y(灵活性) and courage to be a ski jumper. When Yang first took the 12-year-old to northern China, the boy couldn?t swim, skate or ski. But he wasn?t afraid of the high platform(跳台) and kept on training.

Han almost left the sport after hurting his knee months before the Salt Lake Games. In that Olympics he only got 24th. “I was hopeless at that time, but my family and the coach stood firmly(坚强地) behind me, helping me through,” he recalled.

Han Xiaopeng worked so hard that he won the gold medal in the Olympics at last. Because of his success, more and more people in China are becoming interested in skiing. We are proud of him and we hope he will have another big success in the next winter Olympics.

What is the best title for this passage?

A. A Dark Horse at the Winter Olympics

B. A Wonderful Match

C. A Hopeless Snow Game

D. An Exciting Horse Race

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you about my stay at your hotel. My wife and I arrived on Saturday, 15th May and stayed for a week. Though we were treated well and found the service excellent, we think there are one or two matters we should bring your attention.

1. We had hoped for a nice holiday from our busy work lives, and your advertisement said “comfortable and quiet”. We want to have a chance to enjoy ourselves. However, we were always waken up by the noise every morning. Is it really necessary for the workers to start their repair work so early?

2. We had hoped to swim in your “wonderful pool”. To our disappointment(失望), we found that it was closed for the whole time of our stay.

I hope you do not mind my writing to you about these things, but I would be happy if you could give me some explanation. As I said at the start, it is a pity, and your service is so good in other fields.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely

Mr. Hector Bradley
